Pushback Since the NBA Announced It Would Be Holding the All-Star Game

"Since the nba announced that it would be holding the all star game this year. There's been a lot of pushback energy and zero excitement about an all star game this year. I don't even understand why we're having all star game. The game usually brings big crowds but atlanta mayor kishan bottoms and other top city officials. Say that they want people to stay home this year because of the pandemic today the athletic sam amick on why the nba is moving ahead with the all star game as planned despite the opposition.

N.B.A. Announces All-Star Game Plans In Atlanta Despite Player Objections

"This. I am Tony D. All right, so it looks like the N B. A is going to be holding its All Star game in Atlanta. That date is on March. 7. Players don't want to be there. But the MBA thinks it's the right thing to do. Adam Silver wants to hold it. They'll be very limited fans in attendance. They're gonna honor the historical black colleges. So they're gonna have about 1000. People in attendance are going to donate 2.5 million to the historical black colleges, which is a good thing to do. However, the players don't really want to go to the All Star game, and fans are wondering if it should be held it given that we're still in this pandemic, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are going to be all star captains for this game. Look, I understand where this league is coming from A mean despite its charitable givings. It wants to hold an All Star game. It wants to make some revenue off of it from the television contract in the television obligation, it feels like it's an event. It could run be run safely, but it's not really concerned about the look of what an All Star game is. An All Star game is not just An entertainment vehicle, right? It is not just inopportune itty for you. We is fans to watch the best go up against the best The All Star game now and you because you can see this in Major league Baseball as well is becoming just a period of time to celebrate the sport. Like the city that the All Star game is in becomes party central. There's a lot of elements players that aren't in the All Star game, go to the All Star game anyway, because it's a fun time to sort of have, you know to let loose. Have a good time. All the All Star game is going on. There's almost like a relaxed break. This is going to be completely different. The city of Atlanta is not going to be rocking and rolling with the whole bunch of things to do. There's not gonna be the social aspect of the All Star game. I could understand why players don't want to go. I could. I could totally understand It's yet another game and yet another risk that they take by maybe getting this virus. It's another safety protocol. They gotta go through rather than maybe going home and quarantining there for whatever break that they're on. That being said, these leagues are starting to find out that their opportunities to maximize any sort of revenue stream they can is slim. And so there's an opportunity to make a little money on the television rights and the obligations that you've got to roll the All Star game. Adam Silver's gonna hold the All Star game, all the charities and all the things that they're doing off the court are good. But in the end, I think this is about revenue. And so they don't really care whether

NBA Fines Philadelphia 76ers’ Daryl Morey $50,000 For Tweet About James Harden

"Last of basketball operations daryl. Morey is getting in trouble with the twitter again all right. He's been fined fifty thousand dollars for violating the nba anti-tampering policy the finest in response to a to a december twentieth tweet about the houston rockets superstar. James harden obviously gio more used to be there. The tweet was deleted several minutes later. Celebrated the one year anniversary of heart and breaking the rockets franchise assists record more told the league. It was an inadvertent post from an automated app. Now more was hired by the seventy sixers less than two weeks after resigning as the rockets manager. And obviously he. The sixers are one of the franchises that have considered trading james harden john. Do you think that maury deserve to be fine for tampering. Here for that. Automated tweet just congratulating james or the one year anniversary of breaking the record. I don't think he should have been fined. But let me say this. I think adam silver is the best commissioner in sports. I think he's super smart. I think that daryl didn't endear has been a guest on our show. Many times may mason. And i both loved daryl. I think daryl didn't read the room here in other words. Tillman for tita. And the rockets are in a mess. Right now with harden. He has their best player. He wants out. Everyone's connecting the dots saying that darryl would love to have him in philadelphia so for darryl to poke that particular bear at this time is a bad look the way this went down and tell me if you agree is as soon as that tweet happened. Somebody in houston called the league office and said this is bs. Were in the middle of trying to navigate a crisis down here. And this guy's congratulating a player and making us look bad. And i think the league had to react at that point and so i wouldn't have find him but i understand why the league did. What do you think yeah. I think i was surprised when i saw that because i thought his tweet was pretty harmless. But i think you're right. I think that that you know james. Initially when he first asked for the trade didn't really have any representation. Okay didn't have an origin at that time is he's always kind of just like his mom and he's he's since tapped into wasserman those guys'll so he's got different representation now they can handle things but initially. There was a lot of consternation amongst the rockets. When darryl was interested daryl's sixers darrow. Were interested in trading for him. Right you know is there. Was there. Contact with darrell. James like there's this. There's a lot of stuff that really doesn't smell right with the rockets and the sixers and james harden and so whether this tweet was made it on time serving. It's just he. Daryl needs to be way more careful and the whole automated app. I just. I don't know if i buy that. I don't know if i bet either. I so i understand. Let's just say this ninety probably ninety eight percent of the time out of silver gets it right so i think that there's probably a backstory to this that all of us don't know and darryl poking the bear in houston at this particular time was probably not the smartest move. But it's not money they're owned by a bunch of hedge fund guys in philadelphia. It darryl can afford it. I think it'll probably go away now.

"Bradley beal still looking good thirty one. Even the losing and russell westbrook see if this is his prize. A triple double and just in three quarters. Robber was westbrook's triple double in his wizards debut. Something nothing this was everything. Because here's a gadget people say with houston houston. How're you doing another team. He's going to be russell westbrook. He's gonna be a triple double machine. And i think it's going to take some time for the has understand who he is and they're gonna run for with him. Sit up into corners with three because we know russel's going to tech that basket like he always does and this is something to me because it's going to make this team a lot better and a lot more scarier now under. I think that this is something. Also because this is no disrespected john wall perennial all star. I think russell westbrook is like a better version of him. Triple double saint type of intensity gets out on the break. Gets everyone involved in. So i think with russell there and he's been healthy for the most part over. The last five or six years was an issue for john wall. So i think having him out there with that squad with bradley beal very very close to winning this game. It came down to the last thirty seconds. So i have the wizards As a playoff team this year. I grew up in the dc area. And it's with so much pride. I tell you that. In franchise history no player had ever had a triple double in their debut on opening night. It's a rich history guys. Let me tell you. All right. The hawks oh he did it. The hawks blew out the bulls won twenty four to one zero four last night. Atlanta had seven players in double figures with trae young leading the way thirty seven points. The hawks city new franchise record.

"In the near future. You know what i said honestly was not all that different than what i've said in the past what i said is it's inevitable that will expand at some point and when asked about seattle specifically. No rachel i of course was in the league Win the sonics were were in town you know. We didn't make a secret of the fact that we hit to leave seattle but at the time we left it was clear that keyarena then keyarena was not at nba specifications and there were no plans on the table to build a new arena in seattle. Meant was whenever twelve years ago or so. now we're at the point where there is a a new arena in essence. You know a rebuilt keyarena. Let's come online date. Sheltie going into seattle so one you now have the stay. The arina didn't exist back then. And i'd say in terms of expansion. It's been a long time since the league expanded. It's it's it's not on the front burner. I mean we're not about to expand at this moment as you can imagine just as earlier there occupying us around the clock expansion is not on the top of the list but it will. We'll turn back to. Its own point. And i've said you know we loved when we were in seattle. We've had incredible fans their incredible and the forty year history of having a team in that market. And there's no doubt there's enormous support there so at at the right time you know. I think the the team owners will return back to that issue. So adamant you gotta help me out here. If i'm going to place a bet in vegas on whether there's going to be an expansion team in the next five years the nba has that bet. I can't even talking about this show. Never never not neces- stablishment right the all star game a lot of momentum last season in chicago due to some of the great rule changes right. That ilam ending was so fun playing a game. This year seems extremely complicated. Given all the covid protocols you've officially given up the hotel rooms and arena reservations in indianapolis. So what is the plan for all star this year. There is no plan at the moment. I mean again because we knew coming into the season. We're going to be learning. Is you know because we knew there might be some disruptions in the season. We split the schedule in two halves. Which is something. We've never done our history before so we have a schedule too early march when the natural break would come in our season not the all-star break ina previously been planned earlier in february. So as you said we we gave up those hotels and those dates in indianapolis so now we still have an opening attention to play a game. We absolutely still love to play that game. I know the players would as well. Our plan is to still go forward and select all stars. I think that's very important and we'll see again. One thing i've learned in throughout this pandemic is virtually impossible to predict. Either you know before we went into orlando for the bubble. We had the lowest case rate in florida than we had one of the highest when we got there. Now we're dealing with what seems like a new surge in in in cases and that you know in that was not something we obviously knew point. We plan to restart this week. And i think you know. Fingers crossed on the vaccine as a vaccine. It's rolled out and we start to see you know societal adoption of the vaccine and the ability to bring more fans into buildings. Only at the point it's appropriate for players and coaching staff to get vaccinated. That'll happen as well. And so it may open up possibilities by march. I can't even contemplate right now. So we're we're gonna turn back to that but right now. We're just holding the date so adam earlier this week. you said. It was your expectation. The players would stand for the national anthem. What has changed since the bubble in that regard. And how will the league react if a player still does choose to kneel. What's changed since the bubble of course in orlando in a unified fashion. Players coaches referees chose to take a knee. I'm for the national anthem. And throughout the preseason we had we had one game in which players kneeled during the preseason so far in the regular season all the players have stood in. It's my expectation that players will stand for the national anthem. I mean it is. It's been part of the tradition of this league since the early nineteen eighties. I recognize that there are appropriate times for protests which is why the league in essence stood down This summer on the other hand you know. I number one. It's it's awkward to be put in a position to force people to stand for the national anthem. Obviously that's that's a a failure to start with if that's ultimately where we are the number two. I'd say i think it's important tradition. As part of this country. We've come through a very difficult period. Where country feels very divided. Obviously those tensions haven't gone away so there's very few things that collective moments where we all can feel were unified and i think the national anthem is one of those moments. So it's my hope that people will our players will continue to choose in that distribution will remain part of the league. But but again you know. This is something that we've discussed with the players association. It's part of our. It's become part of our collective bargaining agreement right now and so if we're ever going to be changes it would be something we'd need to discuss together but but at least for me especially as we go into these holidays i would say i will say that. It moves me to see people standing in unison for the anthem. There's very few moments in our lives when people can come together and it's my hope that our national anthem will continue to be one of those moments. Well this is certainly a time of year. We need as much coming together as possible. Adam thank you so much for joining us. Happy holidays. I hope your phone tonight rings a little bit less than last night and you get to enjoy the season with your family. We really appreciate the time. Thanks coach thank. You are.

I didn't go to the first two. Preseason games added staples center. Did everything from the studio. Postgame finishes start hustling over there there's not a soul outside of stapleton right.

Fifteen is where you know. My credential has me sitting cap it was. There's no reason to under Understate this incredibly weird incredibly weird. I mean When i got in adam. Silver was just grabbing the mike he was. Obviously there would genius. You got all the lakers lined up together. And they're doing a lot of stuff on the jumbotron But it's the just think about this the way you're talking about. It's one thing on tv to have fake fan noise. It's a completely different thing when you see the entire arena right. You're you're looking at all the mtc to know that there's only x. amount of media that are there and then obviously all the players for that type of a moment for for the lakers grabbing their championship ring to championship number. Seventeen which you know is incredibly important to this organization Anthony davis getting his first one. Lebron james getting his fourth all the storylines and there isn't a soul in the crowd. I i'd be lying to say it was incredibly odd. Who's incredibly weird. But this is the circumstances and you know nothing you can really do about it.

NBA opens with must-see doubleheader featuring superstars, rivalries and comebacks

"Or not, It is time for the N ba again. It's only been a little more than two months since LeBron James in the L. A Lakers won last season's title and now New season is starting tonight. This is the shortest off season in the history of the league, and we have NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman here the morning Tom. Hi, David. So few the NBA. Why rush into another season? Good question, and I'll give you a couple of reasons. Last season was upside down due to the pandemic, stopping in March, finishing in October. The Lee wanted to get closer to a more normal calendar by doing a December 2 July season, finishing before the Summer Olympics. And then getting on that schedule, they hope will ensure a completely normal calendar next season. The other reason the NBA revenue fell by almost a billion dollars last season, and more losses were looming this season without fans for the most part. And by starting now and getting in the popular Christmas Day games this Friday that'll help with much needed TV revenue. I have to ask you this, though I mean the category of it. It's not broken. Don't fix it. Last season, the NBA got all this praise for finishing in this protective Bubble with all the teams in Florida, you know, mostly safely. It seemed to work. Why wouldn't the league do that again? Yeah, absolutely. Was this success? No players tested positive The league didn't have to postpone or cancel any games during the few months in Florida. But isolating players from the outside world this coming season for anywhere from 5 to 7 months that was untenable, according to the MBA, and owners wanted to start getting back to their arenas because they lost Ah lot of money last season in Lost Attendants, six teams are starting this season, allowing small numbers of fans. The league is hoping with rollout of vaccines. Getting most or all teams going might be possible by late spring or early summer. I mean, a vaccine for everyone is months away. So isn't this a risk of the MBA? Well, sure, yeah. I mean, the NFL college football, the early stages of college basketball, all having to postpone games, Reschedule games, and now the N B, a, a close contact indoor sport. Teams playing several games each week traveling a lot, so it is a risk. And in yesterday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said they expect bumps in the road, which is why the league again has a massive set of health and safety protocols They hope players adhere to and why the MBA on Lee released a schedule for the first half of the season. Right now they want to stay. Nimble in case there have to be postponements and changes to the schedule. Okay, so they're acknowledging there had to be ready to pivot. Well, let's talk basketball. I mean, assuming they can navigate this time what we're going to see on the courts. Oh, man, So much great basketball. So many young emerging stars so little time to talk about. Luca Don Church. Devin Booker, Jamal Murray, Donovan Mitchell. John Marantz. Stop me, David. There are so many, but tonight's openers. We celebrate really good old guys. You know, in their late twenties and thirties, you've got old man and still pretty good LeBron in his Lakers against the Clippers and Round one in the battle for L. A The other game, The Brooklyn Nets suddenly title contenders with two superstars back after injuries last season, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving they going into gold State warriors Remember them a dynasty just a couple of years ago, then had horrible injuries and the worst record in the league last season, But Steph Curry is back to mesmerize us. So tonight of funds start to a season that MBA fans hope can last. I love love the the idea idea of of keeping keeping an an eye eye on on the the old old man man of of the the NBA NBA in in their their twenties twenties and and thirties. thirties. Tom, Tom, Thank Thank you you so so much. much. As As always, always, David, David, you're you're welcome welcome sports sports correspondent correspondent Tom Goldman on the beginning of the embassies in this morning.

"Mike schmidts. Thank you for joining me mandy day that you work towards every single year has finally arrived. Yeah i feel like this is our our super bowl and we've been waiting for this forever. I we thought it was going to be in june. And then maybe october and now here in november so you know i think teams and myself are very excited to get this one of the books. Mike schmidts is an nba draft analyst for espn. And he's been traveling the world scouting nba prospects for nearly a decade. I love the nba. draft personally. I went to the draft at the garden. Growing up in new york as a sad knicks fan and i still love the draft. Which tells you something about my own personal pathologies. The weirdness of this draft mike. You said it. This is going to be held in a way that has never been seen before. It's going to be entirely remote adam. Silver the commissioner. Mark tatum the deputy commissioner. They're going to be reading out. Picks live from espn studios in bristol. Where you are right now. So tell me what it's been like for teams and for players to go through this whole draft process in the midst of a global pandemic. It's been very very challenging for teams and players alike from the team side. They're used to having march madness the nba draft. Combine tournaments like portsmouth invitational. Which is where you see. You know a jimmy butler and some of these seniors pop up. They're able to have their individual workouts one on one workouts team workouts. I really have these guys in their building and this pre-draft process that just simply hasn't been the case so think you have teams kind of relying on a lot of these zoom calls right. We've all been kind of zoom jail more or less for the last few months You know they're relying on film. They're relying on intel and then from the players perspective. I think they just want to finally hear their name called. I mean this is the moment that they've been waiting for their entire lives. And so i feel a lot of these kids just having to have this. Push back and push back in push-back. They've each had very different circumstances. I mean some guys are like in the gym working out with nba players. Every day. some are with you know their brother and their cousin and some empty. Jim just one on getting workout. Since so it's been very strange. I guess the thing. I think of when i think about what might be lost in this iteration of the draft like are they going to be suits mike. Are we gonna get like nba draft fashion. That we've been blessed by in the past. Oh we're getting it it's coming it's coming virtually you're not gonna see that same strut the same level of excitement that we generally get in barklays within walking up on the stage but from everything i've seen out on social media everything i've heard. I think the suit game is still going to be strong. Yeah i just want if one of those guys wanna go retro and bring back like the seventeen but in suit. I just wanna make sure. The camera frame contains all seventeen of those budgets. We're gonna do everything we can to get that done. I hope we really really highlight the fashion. Because that that might steal the night to be honest i want to take a deep dive into the top three players in the draft to start here because the three of them. You've been talking about relentlessly for months. Now lamelo ball. James wiseman anthony edwards. They're all still in play for the number one overall pick which belongs of course to the minnesota timberwolves and i want to start with lamelo because we know as the brother lonzo the son of lavar and he chose to play overseas australia instead of going to the college game but for the uninitiated ear. What is lamelo offered to whichever team does end up selecting him tonight. I think he's the best prospect in the draft. Honestly i think if he played at duke kentucky enter any big name college program and he didn't have some of the questions about kind of the circus that has surrounded him at times in his life. I think he would be the runaway number. One pick in terms of his game. I mean he's a big point guard. Six seven close to six foot. Eight is one of the youngest players in the draft. Who was a late bloomer. So i think people remember him as the young you know twelve year old looking kid bomb and half court shots but he's really grown into his frame as great size has the ball on a string as a ball handler. He's incredibly shifty and smooth and his playmaking is ridiculous. The way he sees the game is really really special.

"Over unders top of next hour the AFC over understood the NFC. Yesterday I'M GONNA WE'RE GONNA put all those over on our Fox Bat So you can go. Follow them on twitter over the next couple of months There are a lot of fun so the toughest job in sports has to be a Adam. Silver Roger Goodell the NFL. Commissioner has the owners behind him There's there's an old saying that a Democrats Fall in love with candidates politically Republicans fall in line with candidate the NFL tends to be a tad more conservative. Moderate to conservative the way they run business the NBA tends to be a little more progressive left leaning. They just you know they fall in love with different stuff and different players and give players power in the NFL. Sorta here. We got this mantra. Don't talk about it. We're doing the draft so this is very interesting so now you've got executives and owners leaking stuff to CNBC. Business Channel. Remember when Roger Goodell came out and said we're having a draft talk about it and get fined and the media's like Oh -tarian he right. It worked your boss tells you be quieter you get suspended. You're gonNA talk some employees. You have to do that to look at this so yesterday. Cnbc's Jabari Young reporter came out NBA owners are weighing the cost benefit of even returning. There's GonNa be no fans. The players have already signed up for twenty five percent discount. Non Playoff teams are already resigned to have lost local revenue. They're not going to get any games. And there's the liability of health issues. Essential workers getting sick. So Adam silver wants it. We know that right but Adam Silver. The owners are as boss now. Lebron James came out yesterday and said saw some reports and executive agents wanting to cancel the season. That's absolutely not true. Said Lebron nobody. I know. Send anything like that as soon as it safe. We'd like to finish our season. I'm ready our team is ready. Nobody would want to cancel anything. But Adam silver works for the owners and somebody an owner remembered. The Atlanta Hawks. Gm broke ranks last week and took a shot at Adam silver and other players saying we want it will the NFL owners. They get behind Roger Goodell. Now you've got people leaking stuff that yeah what's the point again? They're breaking ranks. They're breaking ranks remember Disney owns ESPN Disney and. I feel bad for him. Because I got friends there. I'm not sure there's an American company other than maybe airlines. That's been in the crosshairs of this virus. They have theme parks. It's the biggest driver revenue their shutdown cruise lines shutdown theaters movies shutdown NBA season shutdown. Disney's losing thirty million a day day Goldman Sachs just downgraded the stock. That doesn't happen. Not In by baggers run so they WANNA season they need games they have the NBA final. Bob Eiger even presented an idea to hold the rest of the season in Disneyworld. He's not doing that if we have the. Nba Rights Okay. They are in a uniquely bad spot. Disney for this virus. They've been hammered. Not Get into our business but we're kind of an NFL College Football World Cup and Baseball playoff business. We got some NASCAR. Now that's going to start in a week so we've been spared a little bit very very fortunate so you know the TV partners want an NBA season. Lebron and the players want it but she had an Atlanta Hawks. Gm break rank a few days ago. And now you've got CNBC. I mean somebody told him. They didn't go on the air. Make it up somebody. Executives are owners said. The owners are just weighing the.

"Okay if you're just tuning in and you just have been completely unplugged from the world We will let you know that the NBA season has been frozen in its tracks now the the NHL. The Major League baseball the NCAA tournament March madness has been cancelled. And Yeah it is a It is a strange time to be alive yet right so I mentioned that Kevin Love You. You told the story earlier in the show that Kevin Love had come out and donated one hundred thousand dollars to the Cleveland Arena. Worried because he realized if there's not GONNA be any games for month all these people get paid game to game sure are gonNA have no income and so the cavs. His team and I was thinking this would happen. Just tweeted this. Thank you Kevin love for coming through in the clutch. We're behind you as we also announced today that we are compensating. All of our fieldhouse hourly event staff team members as if every game and every event is still taking place which is great. Yeah I hope more teams do that because some of these guys and I I see him every game. Some of these guys are going paycheck to paycheck and they can't go a month or two months without a paycheck. I mean I'm thinking about everybody in the service I just story in the La Times will the will the nightclub scene in La Survive? Think about that. But what about Your Business and I obviously hitter theater business and any service industry? I'm thinking about bartenders waiters and waitresses and ushers in sales people in all that stuff I mean. Are they used to work for a while? you like to make fun of me rightfully so. I kind of deserve it. For My love of going to Broadway shows way John. Okay right so broad went completely dark Max out all the answers all the concession workers all the security people all the performers all night. Hamilton was opening at the pain. Teijin L. A. We've been waiting for Hamilton. Come BACK TO L. A. And Nothing. They cancelled it now. So there's GonNa be a dance here where people figure out where their income is gonNA come from what they're gonNA do with their time The L. A. U. S. D. By by the way has made no decision about whether to make any moves in terms of closure. But we can tell you that the Santa Monica and Malibu schools will be closed for two days for cleaning after a corona virus exposure. They say a community member with children in our schools tested positive. So the superintendent says Santa Monica Malibu. Schools closed for two days for deep cleaning deep cleaning. Probably exactly what it sounds like I think it is. I think it is on the same note that you were talking about with like the you know how this impacts people financially in Italy. A LOT OF THE BANKS. I think most of the banks have suspended mortgages and I think it's one of the same with the lecture companies stuff like utilities. I think it's one of those things where we could end up in a situation like that because everyone's just Kinda Kinda have to chip in and help everybody out because this is obviously something completely unprecedented and people were trying to get by By THE WAY Steve. Assume you're going back and forth with somebody talking about what's ESPN TV. GonNa do with no sports. John Orion from the Sports Business Journal says for now for now and this could change literally. Daily sure Espn's programming plans are on regular ESPN sportscenter all day and night to give you the latest of what's happening on. Espn news video. Simulcasts of radio shows I take your take and the Wilkin show and taped programming. Espn two will be simulcast in combination of ESPN ESPN news. Right so you think about it and they have all these platforms and networks. That air live games all the time. I mean here's the thing you remember in. This is not comp. Well I mean it's it's not comparable but we did sports radio an entire week after nine eleven right. It just didn't have to do with sports. We talked about the tragedy in the impact and the way it affected. Everybody's way of life I mean here's the thing about Radio WE'RE GONNA be here And we will be in it with you separate. Who's going on vacation? I am going on. You're you're you're still not coming in next. I'm still I'm still taking vacations long planned vacation. You are going be here John. Yeah I was going to have to miss. I'd a six game road trip coming up. I was going to miss like four days a shows and now I'm doing all of them. We have no NBA for a month. I mean we've no Middle East based off till you know whenever But we're going to continue doing shows. I was just saying to John. You know ultimately. We're enough to deal with this in a way where we're just kind of goofing around and be entered ringing on. Let's go because we're not gonNA have games to talk about. Oh sure I mean that can be fun though. Yeah well and I think that this story is going to change almost daily. Yeah I think we're going to have different updates. We're GONNA find out if more people have tested positive for this. I just got I just saw tweet from my My Buddy David Locke who has my job with the Utah Jazz. He tested negative. So that's good news at home in Salt Lake City It must have been a little nerve wracking. Well apparently what they did was they kept the the jazz and the thunder players at the arena until two in the morning. Now remember they canceled the game at seven fifteen time and they're all there till two in the morning they had the jazz players all tested and all the jazz staff traveling party all tested and then they flew home to Salt Lake City this morning. So they're back in Salt Lake and then you read the tweet that everybody's being told to stay in their home market. So the Lakers are all staying in Los Angeles the Kings are all staying in Sacramento. And you're supposed to stay there in one of the things they're doing is they're not having any team practices. But you can come in for individual workouts with coaches right so you know. These guys are welcome to come back in. But I don't think there's going to be any games for awhile. Loge reported this morning that What he's hearing is the owners are lobbying Adam silver to make some type of decision. You know month like wine a month right. Like like target he they they want everybody to know what's going to happen a month from now which is good which means things are going to be shut down for a few weeks. Yes that's what it looks like. They haven't announced that. But that's what it looks like. Yeah Mike Trout. Just tweeted okay. We're all at spot right now. That won't last forever to those who share the love of baseball sport. Life will all be back together soon. My wife and I urge everyone to take precautions and stay healthy yeah So Mitra who is the undisputed best player in baseball. We're GONNA have to wait. A few weeks to see him Spring training cancelled and the start of baseball and remember the angels opened the season against the. Oh you're things going to get cancer in the ASS. I mean hopefully just the astros. Ob there at some point. Oh and we should mention Lindsey. Correct me if I'm wrong on this. We have postponed our. I'm Money Machine Right. That's correct okay until we figure out what's going on so we're going to do that on Saint Patrick's Day. We'll do it down. Can't do a public gathering here at the station? Contrary right we'll do down the road. Yeah and we still have we still the money we gotta go right? It's only collecting interest. There MAY BE MORE MONEY. We will absolutely make it rain. There's one hundred percent chance of rain. Okay now the Laker game was supposed to be on. Tv tonight as rockets TNT. And Adam put tea and Tian in there Their in their Ernie Johnson Shack. Kenny Smith Charles. Barkley they are going to have Adam silver join them shortly and when he does. We'll try and bring that yeah. Yeah for sure. Ma- matter of fact when we break early in an attempt to make that we can get atoms by the way we will do fast track at the bottom of the hour. God knows we need a couple of laugh. Amen need a couple of Latin jazz. Go let me see. Let's go to Jordan in Maine. Hey Jordan you're in Maine. I'm listening to you guys on the APP. Got It with the NCAA cancelling the tournament. And then also you know all championship games for winter and Spring Sports. Do you guys think there's any chance they give seniors or any student athletes another year of eligibility. No great question really good question and actually I read something about this today Jordan. If you're a spring athlete so in other words your season just started or hasn't started yet Yeah why wouldn't you? Yeah like if you're a golfer and you've only played like two tournaments and you're a senior. Yup Why shouldn't you get the option to have a fifth year? I think that that's an absolute crap that had the idea. Okay here's the hard-won basketball players. They got to play a full season. Yeah like Sabrina S Q. If she wants to should they grant her another year of Eligibility? I think so too Jordan. What are you yeah? I'm a college student Jordan. I'm sorry let me cut you off. Adam silver has come to the podium. Let's from Adam you can handle in that office so I I really appreciate your taking some time with us now. Can you kind of take me through the way Wednesday played out culminating with you saying this is We're going to suspend the season absolutely first of all Charles. I hope you feel better. I I didn't even know you'd had a corona virus tests and obviously hope it comes back negative. I mean the the good news is that I mean especially for healthy people under seventy. It's very treatable but I I think it's Kenny said earlier that I think we're at the point. Now that this has been declared a pandemic that it's it's virtually impossible to contain it and it's going to become widespread also Kenney said the NBA community is not immune. And so it's going to spread throughout our community as well what had happened? Yesterday was that we had had a board of governors meeting. It was by conference call and some NBA League Committee meetings with some groups of our owners as well and the very purpose of the meeting was to decide what our next step should be. I've been talking to your colleague Grant Hill former. Nba Great. Who's also on the board of the NC Double A? And He'd been filling me in on their discussions about Facing the decision as to whether they should play at that point. They've obviously canceled this point whether they should play with or without fans and some of the same experts in particular Dr Vivek Murthy used to be the surgeon. General United States under Obama was advising us both and the truth is up to a few days ago or even until the experts were unclear as to whether as a public health matter Nba Arena should be emptied. It it it I think. There was a clear consensus. That for people over seventy or people who have any sort of underlying ailment or compromised immunity system that they should not becoming but again it was an open issue so we had a board meeting. We had scheduled one for Wednesday and one for today. The purpose of the one Wednesday was so that we could run through every team and get their point of view. We have some owners who have fairmont expertise. Micky arison anyone's Carnival cruise lines. Who's dealt with these issues for years and others who had who had opinions and and essentially a discussion was. Should we attempt to play our games without fans in the arena? Rina's would that be safe or we should take some sort of hiatus and then the plan was for the League office to process at that information and then have another discussion today and make a decision. That call went on for several hours and I was heading home. I think around eight o'clock or so last night and I got a call from the League office that we adjust learned literally right before tip of that Utah Jazz Oklahoma City. Game that Rudy Gobert only saying his name because he he made it public that he was one of the players that ultimately we learned tested positive that although Kidman separated from his team the day before because he had been running a fever and once once his test came back positive decide. We needed to make a decision whether we were then going to cancel the game and fans were in the seats. Ready to go. We are now Five or ten minutes past the point where you're supposed to tip..

"If he asked for trade and says, the only place outside and extension is with the Lakers. Then you can do that. Is he going to be willing to do it? I don't know. But I look at the Celtics, and I'm like a man if you look at the pelicans rather. I don't know for everybody. Really? I don't know how this goes. If he gets the July. I do not know how this goes if it gets July because then Anthony Davis can play his courts, I feel like if you're the pelicans you quietly start figuring out who give you what? And you try to move him in advance. The Darren Williams straight is the template where one day the jazz woke up, and we're like, yeah, we'll take it or down just fine. I mean, Anthony Davis is a player but different caliber than Darren Williams. But they got value form of note was that with was like what? Was that in twenty ten you know, what the last ten years have been a blur in terms of superstar trades like I have no context. Yeah. Let me check with the warriors. Trae was because the point I would make is it wasn't twenty ten as twelve. But the point is the Jess still have Derrick favors Derrick favors isn't a great player, but they were going to lose dared Williams. And in return, they got if nothing else like about six seven years of quality big man in the NBA is it that easy to find. You know, you make that tray before he asked for that trait except you can't because you're the pelicans in your whole situations. Perpetually tenuous? One thing that I heard from LeBron the other day him talking about mellow and just kind of like, oh, you know, the situations. Not right right now, I'm not like in charge of the team, whatever. And I just thought for a second. Like is he gonna like for? I mean, it's very doubtful that they're going to trade AD midseason. But I thought like is he laying the groundwork here for like all of the young wings to be traded for Anthony Davis midseason for them to sign mellow. I. We Keiser Mela was his basketball genius Vicky really was mellow. Yeah. I think he wants a metal to think he wants. Oh, oh, okay. You know, a man that's what they just said. We can't do it. I look I know you go to maj. Now, look. I just got. I just got s this. What you think about mellow? All right. Cool. You know, it's like the friend that wants to like stay in your hotel room or something like that. And you gotta ask your wife, if it's cool, man. All Lasko ask you baby. Is it cool? If you know, so and so stays out. No, all right, cool. She said, no, it's all good. Ask though. Yep. That's it. That's it. That's what it goes down to.

"This is just an amazing moment in the history of the game. Like, we go backwards all the Daven with Adam silver is that he was so prepared for. I think there's no other question about basketball that I possibly could've asked him that he was not prepared for with a talking point. But the journey. We that's where we take people y'all. That's what we do. We take out of these places. We take our want to go. You know what I'm saying? 'cause y'all curious he's all cures. Should we we as Roger Goodell about that one day? Although I feel like for us to get up to the Roger Goodell offices to ask him that question. We had the bummer rush. Somebody we probably get smoked that one might be a little bit more difficult. I think about this. If you hopped over the barricade to get to the elevator at the NFL offices. Do you think you would get smote? Potentially. Yeah. I I don't know if you're necessarily going to get smoked, but I'll tell you this you ain't gonna make an indie elevator. The other thing by the way, if you did make it to the NFL office and get to some floor that you weren't supposed to be on something. Like that one thing we gotta remember as we talk about the NBA full do that hooped. The NFL is full of Jews who played football. They are really need no security guard. But you know, you know, who works on every floor at the NFL, maybe one or two times over a gentleman by the name of take Terry tape office linebacker because they have actual linebackers. You've ever Tate. Name since millions but Terry take off his linebacker commercials. I have not oh you need to look those up. Those are quite possibly the greatest commercials in the history of commercials. Gyco thing they've kept the gecko going for a long time. And these times commercials s coup out understand who it was that didn't think that Terry Tate office linebacker could go forever. Although I feel like we have a different set of sensibilities in this day and age about things like leading with the helmet and brain injuries. So maybe Terry Tate would be a little bit more of a guilty pleasure. Bettega off his linebacker gay. You turn it off every day. And as in there and just pull up a Terry take off his line back video. And when you get done watching it, you can jump in interrupt me with anything I'm saying because you are going to wonder how did I go this far my life without ever having seen Terry Tate? On. Who's already watching? It is so funny. You watched it with the volume on, right? Yes. It is. Do the recycling bin with like penta petrified. Looking you may interiew Tate? There's no way. The I watch dairy video. There's no way to know that you're going to see somebody get declared. Walk away from K to paper jam baby. You can't can you get depleted if you're not wearing Cleef. That's what makes it amazing. Yes. Yes. Dairy date linebacker. We're about Adam silver some. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Somebody knocking you block in case, you try to run up in the NFL off Zano if you smoke the NBA offices, but I probably wouldn't chance it. I wouldn't know enroll today is on that day. What I definitely wouldn't do go up software. Layup, none of the NBA off somebody going to get that weakness. The sky. You know, I had a good time talking to commission silver. I thought that that went I thought that that went very well. I hope you guys enjoyed it. Also, like, I thought it was interesting hearing them talk about like here until about IT kademi, he's in the different countries. Because basically, here's what I feel like you're saying when you talk about this stuff with the academies and everything else, it's always been kind of root of like some of the hypocrisy, in the way, people view the need that college athletes have for the colleges themselves. There is no way that you can like sincerely invest in basketball academies. And then try to explain why guys need to go to college. Right..

"Yes, it's just like how do we ease? This end to talk to Adam silver about dab who need such you know, such such amount of time with him. And we're trying to budget out put it in the flow of conversation. And look you gotta stand a Cadillac silver, civil whilst prepared like Numa bio, you know, what I mean like he he had done a little research enemy. It was obvious that he had done that. So gave imagine you walk. It'd be like, wow, this do Duke. And then it turns into my dad journey. What that's the range though. Right. It's the range. Yeah. But you know, what though we all we had a debt journey like they're you know, what I mean like different the media guy was there to help make this happy about the great spread of fruits muffins juices was wonderful. And so, you know, see Tim Frank give him the damp hook. And you know, I presume that he was ready to put a damp because he work in the NBA. You know, what I mean like the NBA seeing like death hook sorta place hadn't seen him in a while. Also, you get to fill in the NBA is office with a lot of like tall, white dude's. Oh, yeah. Big time here by hooped. Everybody hoops somewhere. Right everybody who's a little bit of good too. But yeah. So I did the death hug with Tim Frank. But then Adam silver walked, Dan. And I went for the handshake because it's Commissioner and really know. What to do? I got caught in the middle. I didn't know how to play it. You know? Like, yeah. Yeah. On the way out. I gave another handshake. But no, he insisted on the debt. Yeah. I I really wanted to capture that. I really wanted to because I thought like oh my God. This is going to be money for people to see. And then just by virtue of my position in the room and not wanting to just be taken my camera phone out with the commissioners there. And I didn't wanna be that guy. I'm like, I'm not gonna do it.

"I walk in. I see Tim Frank. We exchanged depth that. I do not exchange of people in my office. When I meet them. It just does not work that way in the draft. I could not keep up with all the things the young fella's might be coming up with you are ready. Let me see how to answer this. Not the problem is it gets really awkward if I try to think about it because I would. And I've heard a few things are red. If things after the fact after draft and people will take note of how a player great of MIR. I read the player, and I think for the most part, I'm taking the players leads. They're coming up to me, especially in draft. I mean, there's lots of people are watching. It's not the same as being an open a private situation. And I'm sort of looking like if they stick their hand, all shake it. If they you know. It. They put their fist out. It's it. It just sort of happens naturally up there. But it is a little bit awkward to think about it. I I will say that I tend to be a little bit of a hugger, and especially as I get older in this job. And I realized that I'm clearly of the age where I could be the parent or if an even older in some cases, the players where there's see so I'm thirty five years older than some of those players who are coming up. So I think part of it is is is a little bit almost avenger right now, where it's a little bit of a hug, I think one thing to say in the draft in particular. I've learned from when I'm shaking hands standing and getting our picture taking even for a lot of these really well known young men coming into our draft who've already one NCWA championships, or, you know, played many high profile situations, you can feel how nervous they are. I'm sure you've had that feeling when somebody comes up to you and once selfie. Whatever you put your arm around their shoulder. You feel there's a little bit trembling a little bit. Like, these guys are nervous. So I I see my role is making them as comfortable as possible. So I I'm prepared to greet them. Whatever way is gonna make his gonna make the to us, by the way. I'm little nervous myself up there. I wasn't trained to do that. So I think it's it's a fun part of the job. But I get a kick out of the are talking about it. But it I everytime. I try to think about it. And I think like how should I be greeting this player? It gets really stiff, and it's going to become even that much more. I gotta say is the equilibrium of debt. I got called on the in between when you walked in. I got halfway there. It was like, I'm not sure exactly how to do this. I got caught in that place. We enjoy the warriors ring ceremony because it's such a mix of different people where anybody could lead off with anything Joe lake. Oh, probably come with a handshake. And then I remember that when Peter Gruber on the co owner he stuck his finger out. And I had the ring. And I can this wasn't rehearsed. And I wasn't hurt. My supposed to literally played the. Bigger getting engaged. And I'm thinking, I gotta make up my mind Wigley, and everybody's like a little shaky. You know, people are nervous. So I just went for the hug do next. This is life in sports business into eighteen. This is Commissioner Adam silver with immaculate MPA cufflinks. I just noticed those. That's a nice piece back you. All right. I appreciate I I would say couplings showpiece. That's that's a good one to have our job doesn't have those. I don't think they will look nearly as cool, but we also don't have. But I appreciate it bad. Thank you. Thanks for coming in. You damn right. As Adam silver about his dab journey gave I think that was actually as we will ballpark and questions when that the first one on both of our lists easily..

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are actually sitting here. Now, Gabe is to my right nut normally in the same place today in the same place and across the table from you Commissioner of the NBA, Adam silver is kind enough to join us. I greatly. Appreciate you and this fine spread of fruits and juices that is behind us. They. They. No, that's for you. Great heads it. I see how you got to the place that you are here. So how are you enjoying the twenty thousand nine hundred nineteen season? I'm really enjoying it. In fact, I'm on my way to Houston later today to see Houston wizards game rockets wizards game and seasons unfolding in a really exciting way. I always say I'm a big subscriber of league pass I live here in New York City, and I sit home at night, and I can watch games from the league. And well, it's hard to claim that every team contending for the championship this year. There's something interesting going on it every team. I think the young players coming to league. This Luca Danni, for example in Dallas. I mean, it's remarkable what he's doing on the floor trae young too for that matter in Atlanta. And I'm just enjoying watching the games. And I think there's no question it's been some surprises season some team still coming together. And I think the young guys are coming into their own in that with the warriors. I think not being perceived as dominant this season. Who knows what's? Going to happen this year. But I think it's given some of the young guys some competence that hey, we can compete, and you can see it in their eyes. I been going to game. So far this year I've been somewhere or at least one or two cities every week. And also seem the players in person getting chance to check in with some of the guys I think it's it. We're not the NFL in terms of any given Sunday. But I think there's more of a sense this year that that more teams can compete, and are progressing, and that young players are really developing on the floor cares about that. Because when the CBA after the lockout a big thing that we heard was a discussion that the NBA wanted more parody. They wanted a broader, you know, brought us Alexa, teams that seem to be good which seemed strange to me just because the eighties. When you go back and think about it too teams won the Western Conference. I think three teams won the east that seemed to be like the glory. But now I have to say I look at it in there really is something interesting going on across the board. It was this which you guys envisioned when you wanted to change the way the league structure to certain extent, I think over time. We can even do a better job in distributing talent throughout this league. But what I've always had is it's not as much parody parody of opportunity because there's a recognition in this league as opposed to the NFL, for example that as as great a job, and I think they should be credited with the system they've created for parody that I think if you took a group of our best general managers, and you had playing cards for all the players, and you said create parody. I think it would be frankly, very difficult across thirty teams because as we know with LeBron James or Kevin Durant or Steph curry one player can be so dominant in this league that and they're only so many of those incredible players as as as elite as all the players are in the league. There are what's number ten truly difference makers who if you have that player on your team almost regardless of who you surround them with as long NBA talent that's going to be a playoff team. So I'm not sure we can ever have NFL style parody. But I. I think in terms of opportunity. One of the things our collective bargaining agreement. I think has done a better job in terms of distributing talent throughout the league. But maybe more importantly SIS the societal change in digital. And social media has meant that. If you're Russell Westbrook, for example, and opposite, Oklahoma City is one of the smaller cities in this league doesn't prevent him from being globally known talked about economics in terms of economic opportunity extent that's important to players, and meaning what they can make off the floor because we have a cap system in individual max that those economic opportunities are gonna come based on winning..

Preciado it you're just back from Mexico and probably little gas from the travel. And I know time is of the essence and there's a bunch of like to get to. But I have to start with one quick trivial note a year ago at this time had Kelly L coin dollar dollar Bill from billions on the full forty eight. And he mentioned, of course, his father being congressman less alkaline. And then I got an Email from you short time later saying, hey, a lawyer, a loyal listener a loyalist, Noor, Adam silver. You emailed me. And you said small trivial points. I was a legislative assistant in Washington DC working for his dad less in congress in nineteen eighty three in eighty four. So I subsequently hit up Kelly and said, did you know this? He says he did remember meeting you, and you might have met a young dollar Bill when he was like sixteen years. I've so I remember. Both Kellyanne his sister. They were in high school at the time in Washington DC, and I had just graduated from Duke, and I was had been an intern. I got a fellowship out of due to work for less coin. One summer is congressman from Oregon and after my fellowship. He offered me a job as a fulltime legislative assistant. So before then went on to law school. I I worked for roughly year and a half as a legislative assistant as Washington DC office. And I've been. I haven't seen in a long time. But I know he and his dad or huge trailblazers fans. I mean, he was talking a lot about that during his podcast with you. And I know back in the day in those this heyday great trailblazer teams that I was one of the only people in the office who wasn't from Oregon. But so they were all I I think I'm allowed to say I was Knicks fan then I'm no fan of all teams now. But yes, so fun memories of and less and his father lesson. I are still close and Email each other all the time. That's fantastic. I just I needed to close that loop. I just thought it was such a great little aside and proving once again that in today's NBA all roads somehow lead back through the the TV show billions, which is a great thing. You left out Ahmad Rashad daughter who's a star billions, right? Always miss president come Dollah consolidation Rashad. Yeah. So there's that connection as well. How cool is that? I love it. It's great. So let's let's talk some some NBA issues. Here. I've got such a long list, and I don't even know where to start. So I'm just going to start here. Taking lottery reform. This is the first year that you guys readjusted the odds, right? This is an effect this year for the first time. So equal fourteen percent chance of the top pick for the three teams at the worst records. And this was the push to say we we're not going to tolerate taking anymore. Let's try to get this out of the game. You talked about how corrosive it was not just what teams might be doing. But how fans and media were talking about what teams are doing. But here we are encouraging it any courage. But here we are it's late December. And I can tell you based on my Twitter feed and other things that fans of the Knicks many fans the Knicks are outright rooting for them to lose because they all oncein Williamson fans of the Cavaliers certainly are rooting. I've heard I've seen nets crossfire between nets fans who aren't sure if they want to still be over achieving or they have their pick back to be losing more. I don't think that this conversation has gone away. And as I look at the standings atom Atlanta zone pace for about seventeen wins, Chicago and Phoenix eighteen wins. Cleveland nineteen wins. The Knicks Twenty-three wins. That's five teams that are under three hundred winning percentage. That's even higher than last year. So I ask you is lottery reform, actually, working to the extent that teams still may be kind of somewhat tanking and fans in meteoroid still absolutely talking about it that way, I think the direct answer your question is it's unclear how effective the lottery form will be. And I think you'll remember as I said, then we knew when we made these changes..

"Got plays out the what the walk committed to winning at a time when you get in so much such an exorbitant amount of dollars that's being according to these players, they're saying, no, that's not enough. We care about winning because we want more that I think that's actually good again. It's so funny, of course, then the other side of the coin and you're right, I do like in fact, we've made a lot of changes are collective bargaining system so that contracts will be shorter where we close more closely type pay for performance. And it's remarkable to me when I hear somebody complaining that a player made a move because it would increase his chances of winning you and I also lived through period in the NBA where you go on, then it was talk radio around the clock and you'd hear guys say, I can't believe there's don't really care about winning. All they care about is getting their acting now guys will you're right, especially in a cap system. Look, if you're a superstar in the NBA you know, putting aside some tax differential from one market to another. You're going to get the max contracts that you're going to get your money. So then in a good way, it becomes about winning and they're driven to win. And yet somehow that's been turned into a negative by some people. So I'm with you. There's no perfect system, but at the end of they had much rather have guys doing anything to win than anything to get a contract Commissioner. Adam silver right here was the day on ESPN radio and ESPN news. Adam, let me shift to a story that was relative. I I don't think it's denial. I mean, it was unfortunate. We know what happened with the Dallas Mavericks organization. Investigators found that about fifteen females in the Mavs organization was subjected to our rasmin by a former CEO also found workplace misconduct that stretched nearly twenty years. Alternately, Mark Cuban agreed to pay out ten million dollars, you know, for causes involving domestic violence and beyond. And you know, I thought he should. I love Mark Cuban. I think he's phenomenal for the NBA, but I thought because of the times that we're living in and what folks are demanding in terms of repercussions. And what have you that a harsher punishment should. Have come down. What were your door? Could you explain what your decision wasn't? Why know I think you said it perfectly at and my job, you know, as as Commissioner, and it's probably the most important parts of my job, and that's meting out discipline in a situation like this and and I take it so seriously that I never wanted to be in a position where whether it's a player coach or an owner that I'm an essence making an example out of him and sort of the lead into your question, given the times we live in and that sort of suggests to me that because of a larger environment like should have done something more just to send a message in my view is I just I have to look at the individual facts in the individual facts here where that after a seven month investigation that was conducted by a woman and milk grim, she led it. She's a former attorney general New Jersey. She looked at one point, six million documents. She interviewed two hundred and fifteen people and nobody had any. There was never suggested that she wasn't completely objective. She'd never met Mark Cuban before she never did work for the Mavericks has no intention to them work. For them in the future. So completely independent. I think there were seven lawyers who worked on his practically fulltime for seven months. They found that Marquette, no direct involvement in any of these incidents..
