Careless Women: Consequences of Complacency
"I say addresses the issue with careless women in isaiah chapter thirty two verses nine through fifteen he was speaking to the hebrew women who lived seven decades before christ and yet his message is just as relevant to women who are living today he opens his plea telling the women who are at ease to rise up hear his voice and pay attention to what he has to say then he warned them then a little over a year they'll be troubled when their world falls. Apart throughout the bible god tells people not to be afraid but in this passage isaiah gives the exact opposite advice. Tremble you women who already be troubled youths placement women. They were living fearlessly giving no thought to the future. They needed to be shocked. Wake to be prepared for what was ahead. He goes on to tell them to get rid of their fancy wardrobe and clothe themselves in sackcloth because their time of mourning is coming clarity will hit palaces will be forsaken. The city will be deserted. The forts and towers will be taken over by robbers and wild animals will roam freely. Sounds pretty bad. Doesn't it until we get to verse fifteen until the spirit is poured upon us from on high and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field and the fruitful field is counted as a forest the remainder of chapter thirty two provides hope as ahah describes what will happen once. God reigns in their lives then. Justice will dwell in the wilderness and white justness remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation insecure dwellings. And in quiet places though hale comes down on the forest and the city is brought low and humiliation blessed are you who so beside the waters who sends out freely the feel of the ox and the donkey. Isaiah thirty two sixteen through twenty twin on little secret a year ago. If you ask me to analyze old testament prophecies like this. I would have gone into a panic. But i've come to realize that if you read slowly ask questions and do a little research you can make sense of anything you read in the bible so let's go back to verse nine and delve a little deeper into what i say was saying. It starts off pretty easy pay attention. I've got something important to say to you. All women who are living the easy life darker days are ahead and you need to be ready. So why did he specify the women. Why did i address his message to all the people. Obviously we have no way of knowing what was going on in his head per. Perhaps it would be easier to get the attention of the women since we tend to be more sensitive or maybe like in the case of the wicked hebrew women. They were the leaders in their careless living often the bible reveals the severity of the situation by the state of the women the profits use them as an example saying things had digressed far that even the women were living in depravity. Whatever the case. I see a wanted to make sure that he got the attention of the women in order to prepare them for what was to
Daughters of Zion: Fashion Forward Females
"So who were the daughters of zion. Each term used throughout the bible mostly in the old testament but occasionally in the new testament as well. Zion's not a person but rather a place zion is the dwelling place of the lord. Daughter of zion is usually used to describe the inhabitants of jerusalem daughters of zion reverse to specific women and today's passage in isaiah. Three sixteen to twenty six isaiah is speaking directly to wealthy jewish women who had gone astray isaiah three opens by giving judgment on the men of judah and jerusalem. He warned the israelites of what is to come in the days ahead because of their wickedness he specifically addresses the wealthy and those in positions of leadership because they're the ones who were living in luxury while oppressing the poor. They had become an aristocratic society that was leading to the moral decline of their culture. I find versus six and seven particularly interesting. How they were going to choose their leaders but that discussion. We'll have to wait for another day today. We concentrate on what isaiah had to say on the daughters of zion after fifteen verses of condemnation for the men verse sixteen opens with moreover the lord says after rebuking the men for their role in the destruction that was to come isaiah turns his attention to the women to let them know that they're responsible as well. Bursts sixteen describes the women's behavior specifically the way they walked because the daughters of zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and want an is walking and mincing as they go making a jingling with their feet. Verse seventeen prophesized. What will happen to them. Because of their era guidance therefore the lord will strike with the scab the crown of the head of the daughters of zion and the lord will uncover their secret parts. Isaiah goes on to give an exhaustive list of all the jewelry and accessories that the lord will take away from the women. The list includes anklets scarves necklaces bracelets headdresses headbands perfume boxes. Charms rings nose rings purses mirrors an robes. He closes the chapter with the list of replacements. Instead of the sweet smell of their perfumes there will be a stench. Instead of they're pretty sashes rope baldness will take over there beautifully. Styled hair rich robes replaced with sackcloth branding instead of beauty and if that's not enough there men will die in battle verse. Twenty six concludes with her gates shall lament and mourn and she being desolate shall sit on the ground. Why does is e start by talking about the way they walked. Well let's look at how they're walking out nex. We would describe that as walking with your nose in the air. A way of saying that you're looking down on others because you're better than they are. Wantin- is that means ogling or flirting we can assume for the rest of this passage that these are married women so why are they flirting with other men walking and mincing as they go the an iv version translates that as strutting along with swaying. Hips in other words flirting. So how does god respond to their flirtatious and proud. Behavior translated literally verse. Seventeen says the women will get leprosy or other sickness. That causes their hair to fall out. That would be a pretty scary warning especially for vein women who are consumed with their appearance while many of the items listed in verses eight through twenty three are familiar to us. many more are obscure items that we're not sure what they were. Bible scholars point out. That many of these articles came from foreign cultures. I wanna man even. Oh what happened these things were. The general consensus is that his wife who was a prophet is probably provided him with this list of items worn by these women. Isaiah reminds them that these things they have are fleeting and will soon be replaced in a mere ten verses highs. Ahah takes us from these women at the height of their popularity feeling like they're living the dream to them tumbling down to the depths of humiliation from walking with outstretched necks and a jingle to their steps to morning destitute on the bare ground. What a fall while this was written about women centuries ago the same message can be preached today. Are we not living in a society much like the one isaiah describes we as christian women could be called daughters of zion. Are we guilty of the same transgressions as these women. Perhaps you don't mince and strut as you walk and you probably don't jingle but do you have pride in your heart. Are there people you look down on those. You consider inferior. How much time do you spend on your outward appearance. How much time do you spend on your spiritual appearance verse. Seventeen talks about god's stripping away. They're beautiful hair and uncovering their secret parts. What if god stripped away your carefully combed hair your makeup and manicured nails your jewelry and fashionable clothes. What would be left
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.
The Ins and Outs of Steroids
"Now before we begin. I do want to say this episode is not meant to be a comment on anyone that does steroids is more for educational don't purposes so that people can understand the what could be considered the physiological positive effects of steroids but obviously explore the negative effects of steroids always as well and what they really are. Firstly the words steroid has many different meanings as steroids can be chemicals that often hormones that your body makes endogenously within the body naturally on the help carryout cell activity and you need a healthy balance to grow grow. The other hand steroids can be made can be synthetic on of which there are the two main types that are co scare steroids on Anabolic Andrew. Genetic steroids animal officials so corticosteroids are medicines that quickly fight inflammation flirtation. They work like the Hormone Cortisol and Cortisol keeps your immune system from making substances that cause inflammation so these types of steroids. They slow or stop the immune system process that triggers this inflammation but admits that presented. I won't say because mainly on Bolic's so as mentioned anabolic steroids are aw synthetic manmade properties and aversions of testosterone which is the male predominately male sex hormone. That's how it was build big muscles. The women duels out testosterone but men have more women have more issues and in the name and unapologetic. This refers to muscle building on drudge refers to increase male sex caracteristics. And that's why. The name is anabolic for muscle-building For the male sex characteristics so it's worth saying that healthcare providers can prescribe steroids to treat hormonal issues. If you have some from delay puberty for example it can also treat diseases. That cool was muscle all such such as concern AIDS. But obviously in this episode wouldn't be focusing on ready how athletes and bodybuilders can misuse these drugs in attempt to boost a physical appearance and Affleck performance but before we look into the dangers associated with Miss USA steroids. Let's look into what could be considered the positive effects. They have on the body so taking it back to what happens when we work out. We know that when we lift weights we put a muscle strain and we are progressively area loading them to create tiny micro ties in our muscle fibers wipers and the body's natural repair process. That happens when we start to repair the TAT. And add further cells to build a stronger fiber and this is known as muscle hypertrophy. And every time it's is this repeats. The process of tie-down rebuild results in muscle brave and natural testosterone is one of the main ingredients for this process but the anabolic steroids can serve as a supplement so once ingested or injected and all about steroid traveled through the bloodstream to the muscle. Tissue is drawn to the muscle cells receiving dot colder under Gen receptor on these receptors shaved very specifically to bind with the body's natural testosterone. Whole matter but once this synthetic steroids in place the receptor Sir is activated? So the steroid takes the form of Test Australian and fits within these receptors and then the steroids can start interacting with the self DNA to stimulate the protein synthesis. His process that promote cell growth and once these receptors are activated some cells by the synthetic steroid some sales increased production of proteins which oversee a body used to build Komo cells. And this is the phase the metabolic cycle known as a nominalism where small molecules build into more complex. Ones and energy is stored on your body build up muscle. Intense exercise can also release cortisol and this breaks down a breakdown muscle tissue producing so muscles and some steroids can actually block cortisol. From finding to the muscle cells receptors diminishing the breakdown process so anabolic steroids shot in the Catholic phase of the metabolic cycle. So means your muscles spend less time on recovering between workouts and you can do more exercise with less rest. One study showed. The men who used steroids for ten weeks gained two to five kilograms of lean body muscle muscle and therefore I five to twenty percent increase in strength. This muscle. Mass will the game muscle mass predominantly in chest shoulders and upper arms because they're more amgen origin receptors in these cells in there on your legs for example but it is not all sunshine and rainbows. Steroids have dockside. I'm very native effects. As well. People who misused steroids they usually taken orally or injected them and or platinum is a cream even doses may be anywhere from ten to a hundred times higher Ahah than those prescribed to treat medical conditions so the negative effects quite plentiful they can have a long-term damaging effect in the body including kidney problems or failures liver damage including lychees insists. There's the risk of blood clots heart attacks and strokes. The increased strength delivered by Anabolic. Steroids can summary Recession just leads. What's known as Royd rage which leads to altered moods? Irritability increased aggression on the thought to do this by talking nerve cells on and so it leads to poor impulse control so Lloyd rages overacting to an event that normally wouldn't set them off steroid. Usage can also lead to Gynaecomastia Theo. Which is the development of Enlarge Mayo breasts and Dr? Joseph t cruise is one of the talk Los Angeles Gynaecomastia surgeons and he actually conducted as their in house study. It showed that approximately fifty percent of patients who come to see him with the problem of enlargement. Oh breasts have whole moaning juice With majority of them being bodybuilders bodybuilders who've taken steroids at some stage in life and this is because steroids can be converted into eastern by the body in this increase in east region which is the FEMA sex hormone is what causes. Men's develop unwanted breast tissue against our own also lead to shrunken testy. Compact male fertility increased acne acne and so much more so there are alludes of debilitating effects of steroids can affect you long term and have serious serious health risks. So that's all we have the time for for this episode. I hope this helped educate you. On what stories are how they mimic endogenous body homes on the potential short-term game but really really scary longtime effects of steroids so I want to stress that this happened again is not tolerated. Anyone that is taking steroids and considering taking steroids but it should be seen from the educational standpoint. That of course is a surface level. Discussion to provide feather Info fits within the timeframe we try and cells in the short
Croatia's ruling conservatives to analyze loss of presidency
"And Croatia's former Prime Minister Zoran on Novic won his country's presidential elections this weekend. The center-left candidate beat the defending center-right incumbent Kalinda grubber Qatar in a second-round round runoff. Mr Milinovic takes the reins just as Croatia takes on the rotating presidency of the European Union at the time of huge change within the EU. So so how will he manageable. This Guy Delone ISM is multiples Balkans correspondent and I'm delighted to say. He joins me on the line now. A guy a very warm welcome. Tell us about this new the president that Croatia has yeah. He's not exactly a newcomer to Croatian politics. He's not a fresh face by any means. He was actually Prime Minister for five years between twenty one ten and two thousand fifteen when he was at that point the leader of the Social Democrat Party And he was emptied out in two thousand fifteen hundred along with his government. Ostensibly I think because he the Presided over the bulk of never ending recession and it lasted for six years this recession. Although he was at pains to point out during the presidential debate that during during his last quarter in power as prime minister of Croatia had started to grow again economically speaking. You know you described him. As centre-left you describe. Kalinda Gra Qatada which is as a centre right. These things are all relative in Croatian politics. you you have both sides appealing at these nationalist tendencies save which have still existed even despite the fact that Croatia achieved its independence during the homeland war of the Nineteen Ninety S. They still think it's A. It's a winner to to drum up nationalist rhetoric. And we certainly saw Mr Milosevic and also script Qatada Mitch doing that during the campaign. Indeed I mean many people were quite surprised the fact that Kalinda grab architectural which has lost the election given the fact that she was extremely popular in so many ways. And also talking about the populist and nationalist point of view many remember her the World Cup final in two thousand eighteen when she was closing cozying up Vladimir Putin. And that's quite a statement to make who can forget those scenes When Kalinda quarterback Catava gloriously decked out in the checkable Jersey of of of Croatia during the World Cup final? As I recall she didn't have an umbrella but some I'm funky was holding an umbrella over over Putin's had but she looks absolutely delighted with the fact Croatia we're in the final and creations enjoyed the fact that not only their country's footballers footballer's but also their country's head of state regaining such an international profile. And you saw many profiles of Qatada in the international press after after that she certainly gained international attention and that was a big boost to her personal popularity For a long while and for much of last year you would have said that she'd be a shoo-in career election because you've really got to do something hitting quite unfortunate in order to lose the presidency and Croatia because it isn't a role the tolls a lot of executive power by any means means it's really a figurehead slash ceremonial role. But she made some missteps. And I think the key one among them was she made some sort of alliance with the mayor of Zagreb Millan Bandage Pitch. Who is currently on trial for corruption? Not the first time that's happened to him and needs to be said. And if there's one thing that voters in Croatia a sensitive about it's the idea idea of politicians troughing it at their expense and that seems to be in the biggest misstep which hit her popularity that she was in second place in in the first round of this. The presidential election to Mr Milosevic many people thought hoover up the right wing votes in in the second round. But it seems that wasn't the case against Milosevic assuming the presidency and a k next month I think as you said the largely ceremonial role but he does have influence when it comes to foreign policy and defense and security plus last Wednesday. Croatia took up the reins in terms of being the The EU presidency. It's assumed the six-month rotating position and has described itself. Is it being a historic event CRATIA and the most difficult test of its maturity since independence. That's an enormous job. I think that's actually Ahah comment because the issue we've seen had highlighted during the presidential campaign is the two candidates still hawking back to the nineteen ninety s and there was a think tank here in Slovenia which was looking at the issue and it said that the the both candidates were trying to prove which was the biggest Croat. And that's that's rather problematic when you think this is now almost thirty years on from the country's independence it's twenty five years on from the end of the homeland wars. They call it in Croatia unless still trying to prove who's more Croat than the other. The country needs to move beyond that and taking on the presidency of the European Union. Even if it's only for six months is a chance to show that it can be bigger than that and it does have an excellent opportunity to show that it can put all of these ethnic and regional squabbles. Behind it because of course the question of the expansion of the European Union into the Western Balkans is a really big live issue. Both Serbia and Montenegro are in membership negotiations. Albania north Macedonia would dearly like to be and would be were it not for manual macron. Vetoing them a couple of months ago so Croatia really doesn't have an opportunity here to stand up and say it'll be better for all of us in this region and in Europe as a whole if we he gets on the right track with these negotiations. This is the K. Isn't it guy the fact that when you do assume the EU presidency. You almost have to put your national interest to one side and thinking linkin terms of the greater good of the block. How capable do you think Croatia will be in trying this this task given the fact that it's issues of populism listen? Nationalism Migration border control a such a sticky issue for them. I don't want to make Zora Milosevic out to be an angel. He isn't he's he said. A nasty things about Serbia. Bosnia and Croatia has been locked in a border dispute with Slovenia a decades now However the fact that people wanted to vote for him him who is as we settle sensibly centre-left rather than Kalinda robot Qatada? He was supported by a right-wing Nationalist Party the party which founded Croatia the HD Zad that may be indicates that the voters think that they need to do something else. Now that this would be optimistic slammed on this it has to be said but perhaps people are thinking well. It is now time to move beyond that. The the arguments the politics and the ethnic arguments of the nineteen ninety s and try something different so so she would be optimistic in the New Year to think of Croatia moving in that direction. Why not thank you very much? Indeed guide

New Trump rule targets poor and could cut legal immigration
"Ahah top immigration official in the white house can kuechly said he's quote certainly not prepared to take anything down off the statue of liberty but at the same time a new administration rule. We'll fundamentally change who gets to come to this country. Yes so this rule targets immigrants who use public assistance like food stamps housing vouchers medicaid under the new regulation. Those immigrants will find it far more difficult to extended their visas or get permanent legal status in the united states. Here's how kuch gucci nellie the acting director of citizenship and immigration services outlined the reasons behind the move yesterday at the white house president trump's administration is reinforcing the ideals of self sufficiency and personal responsibility ensuring that immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in america. N._p._r.'s pam bessler has been following this and joins us <hes> good morning good morning so we just heard ken kootenai say there this is about self sufficiency personal responsibility. I mean these are things that the trump administration has talked about for awhile. Why is this happening now well. We've always had a policy in the u._s. Of restricting immigrants who might might become a public charge at somebody who relies primarily on the government to survive but the law was very vague and what the trump administration's doing is greatly expanding the kinds of aid that can be held against a green card applicant to conclude nutrition aid healthcare if there looks like they're gonna use it at any time. Their application could be denied and we should note that we're talking about individuals who are in the country legally right people who have already come through legal means right <hes> they just need some help from from the government to make ends meet. It's legally legally entitled to these rights so immigration activists. I imagine they're not too pleased. What are they saying. That's right. They're they're really angry. They predict millions of immigrants and their families are going to be affected and this is part of a broader campaign by the trump administration to target both illegal illegal immigration and that is especially targeted at low income individuals and this is about poor immigrants. The advocates say these people are basically being told they are not welcome. Here's marie elena and copy a who's executive executive director of the national immigration law center. This is part and parcel of the larger strategy that this administration has which is basically. Let's make immigrants live so horrific and impossible that they will either hide because of fear or that they will self deport already seen an impact even when rumors began spreading at the administration was going to do <hes> this <hes> social service providers healthcare providers started seeing immigrant families pulling out of programs like medicaid and food stamps even if they they were for their american born children because they were worried about what impact it might have on their status so what happens. Do any of these groups try to challenge this rule. Oh yeah we're expecting lots of litigation. The national immigration law center announced within seconds of kootenai. Eli's announcement <hes> that plans plans to sue to block the rule from going into effect october fifteenth. They say the administration did not give sufficient weight to the tens of thousands of objections raised during the rules process. They also contend that it's racially motivated that it's meant to discourage people of color from entering the united states which is something that the administration denies
"ahah" Discussed on Sports Wars
"So one of the things is Ahah Thomas does with coaches other players as they devised this informal system. I don't think it was super detailed. But it's your physically manhandling. Michael Jordan year after year. But was it at all risky philosophy for the pistons to sort of fully dedicate their force to one single player? The pistons really did that at an assessing the Celtics are there rival the Celtics. They're looking for. They wanna throw in the Celtics not worried particularly on the bulls. Jordan scores a lot of points. But so odd they're beating him. So all the sudden, you know, the bulls led by Jordan or coming from nowhere. And they're about to upset the pistons who now had established themselves as the favorites the title. So the take home court advantage in that series in the conference finals, and then go home win a game two to one and that I had been tinkering with this in his mind that we've got. Come up with a system where we devote all our defense to stopping Jordan, because the other guys are either immature or not at a level. And he convinced his Chuck Daly to coach, the give this a try when they get down to one because, you know the they lose the next game three to one, they're probably out and the bulls pulled upset, and who knows what happens made isn't that there's never a championship for the pistons. And so, that's when the Jordan rules. What's with the came known as Jordan rules defense, which really was just a series of, of double teams and traps that wherever Jordan, went just to get the ball out of his hands. And if you look back at that series once the pistons went into that, that defense, which was not a formalized thing, but it's, it's sort of all most was drawn up on napkins at desperation, a bulls couldn't score ninety points and it became just the domination of the pistons over the bull. So the next couple of years that year in the next of aiming at Jordan. So Jordan, obviously reacts poorly. To losing to the pistons year after year after year in the playoffs and no he drives himself even harder to get better in the off season. And then he famously he's getting on his teammates, emotionally and physically mentally, he's, he's humiliating them as they start to make their championship runs. Eventually was there a switch that got flipped that caused this attitude from Jordan, or was he always always sort of wired to lead through force? I think the the edgy had was always the competitiveness. And that was always within the in back, North Carolina, and his freshman year Sports Illustrated came in do a cover story and Dean Smith, Michael off of that picture, wasn't on the, on the cover of because he was a freshman at that was another one of those things that Jordan held against Dean Smith of the years. So that, that motivated him. And when he came in as a freshman, he, he used to dunk on worthy, and Perkins and right on a on a chalkboard. Keep a tally running. Tally of how many times he dunked over them. So there was brash outside on the basketball court. It was a brash attitude. He wasn't like that privately a lot. He was kinda shy when he came in a little bit and as a famous story in high school. Greg never thought he would be girls would like them and he took home, Ed courses, because he felt he'd always have to live my himself because he didn't think he has handsome women wouldn't find him attractive, again, looking back a hard to believe. So he had his nature in, but then because his star was growing at such a level in the visually because he's scoring so many points in so spectacular. And that combined with the marketing, which was driving a wedge between him and the and the other great players because, you know, guys like magic and is Asia are winning and more popular for longer with Jordan's getting all these endorsements. And so these, these rivalries grown as well. But at the same time he's not winning. So he's being compared to these other players and say, well, yeah. You know, they don't score as much as you but they win you're a loser and nothing. Drove Michael got more upset than being branded as a loser as a failure. And so when he gets compared to magic and say, we'll Magic's a winner. You're a loser. He he's just growing tremendously frustrated about this and sort of lashing out. What can you do any Sutton look around his famous line was it's a lot easier to, you know, make James worthy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar better. I and I'm trying to make you know, trials Davis and Joon Aldam better. How am I supposed to make them better? They stink you know. So Jordan is taking his frustrations out on his teammates because he's feeling that, you know, they're not up to what the bulls need to do what he needs to do to be able to win compete. And, you know, the story these myths about is AM about bird about magic that their winners, and he's a loser. We hear a lot about great players. Even most recently, LeBron James as a basketball savant, they're able to solve problems diagnose, and sort of be creative in ways that people aren't thinking about would you describe at this time, so round nineteen ninety hundred ninety one as they start to get over the hump, would you describe Michael in that way? Or is there still sort of a rawness to him? We romanticize that a lot with the great players is, you know, as Larry bird's eye q, you know, higher than, you know, whomever, I'm sure there's a lot of high Q players who just can't make shot at as as often as guys. But Michael, it did have a special. I mean, he picked up the triangle offense almost immediately and Michael would learn since you, he has kind of a photographic memory. So he would learn other teams plays as well as his plows. And so they'd be on the court. I remember he used to do this, with Gary Payton all time Peyton would forget the plays. And he would tell Peyton okay? George Karl wants. You hear now you're going to run a heist role there. And then you go to the corner. And so he would, you know, in his way of taunting he would he would tell the players when they're kinda turned toward the coach with the plays. They say no, no. You're supposed to be over here and you hit there and then you cut through. So he knew his place he knew their plays. And so I don't know. Is that is how much level of genius that is? But what he is was just a natural basketball talent. So he has a ton of freedom under Doug Collins in the first part of his career and Phil Jackson takes over. He and Tex winter lead assistant, install the triangle offense Jordan with this high Q. Does he see the need that okay? I am the clear number one scoring option. But we need to adjust how we do things to at least have a chance at, you know, throwing change up at the pistons throwing change of the league's best teams was he accepting of, of that need to. To install something new. No, it wasn't not at all. He was very dubious about it. He he filled with an assistant with the bulls for two seasons and he wasn't close with Michael at all. In fact, I think Phil told me one time in his first two seasons with the bulls, but he only talk with Michael once Phil was saying, telling Doug in these things that we can't win a championship. If this guy continues to score thirty five twenty points a game and our offense is predicated like that with everybody a load up on it. So Doug said, well, why don't you go tell them? And so filling over and then he told my going, and Michael shook his head and said, that's interesting. And, and that was the extent of it. So then if the eighty nine season which was a shock because they had gone to the conference finals had this big upset, the Doug is fired. And Phil takes over as coach Texas billionaire as assistant, but head right at the getting the Collins didn't believe in, in the triangle, triple post system. So fell says to Michael, we're gonna have you're gonna have to we're going to introduce this kind of style of play. And he brought in elements in that first season eighty nine ninety he didn't. He didn't throw it at the team he started. Introducing just elements in concepts of it. And I remember Mike of the beginning of the season saying how give it three games. But if it don't work after that I'm scrapping. And so it became a struggle in tremendous tug of war, but it became an on going struggle. Michael was basically. Challenging fail as challenges. Everybody say, all right. Well, if you think this is better in this work. Let's see. And so, you know fail as needing to prove to him that of at this is going to work. So the getting a little better that getting a little better but not winning. And really, you know the turning point now only because they beat the pistons that year but it was the year. They went on to win the title ninety one. So to get the conference finals with inevitable matchup with the Troy and game on the bulls had the best record that season is I had gotten surgery January and missed a couple of months he was back now. But so the bulls had the best record in the home court. So the first game there in Chicago. And they go out ahead. And then pistons catch up in it now it's within a pointer to go into the fourth quarter. And Phil was always consistent on, on Michael's rest. The always rest of the start of fourth quarter I four minutes, five minutes, depending on circumstance, and so he takes my glad, and it looks like the pistons or about the, you know. And the reserves, come in, and, and, you know, they hold off the pistons stretch out the lead to double digits, and that was the piffle for Michael that, that made the point that answer, in fact, when he when he when he coined term I supporting cast began to call call the rest of my supporting cast, but that was the epitome for him that if he did a little less and other guys rebel do more. They had more talent than the pistons, and that was sort of kickoff point, not only for on the record winning six titles in eight years. But in Michael's belief that this is the way to play in this work. And then he became like Kobe later on years when they're fail then he became an advocate of the triangle and the triple pulse at this was not only a way to play this was the way to play. An and this was the way. And, and that was the system of play. That carried them all through the nineties. So after they get over the hump they win ninety one. They win in ninety two and obviously it is the dream team in the summer of ninety two it's almost hard to believe even now with championships with the stardom that he has that he feels that Michael Jordan feels so strongly about Isiah Thomas and keeping him off the team with a team filled with guys. He already wants to destroy every night and does destroy every night and it's clear that is area is in on Michael's level anymore. Is it crazy that he still harbours that or is that just sort of what makes him maniacal partially echo? But that's also sort of the depth of why this fuse was was. There was nothing like it in history of sports, in this was Shakespearean this, this was the Capulets and the Montagues that Jordan, harbored this all these years, not only his Asia, and the pistons that treatment with the pistons Isaiah. With the alleged freeze out and all that he didn't technically keep is AO off the team. I it probably was more Chuck Daly, that, that, when Chuck submitted his list of players, they anticipate on and Mike go because of Nike and because of, you know, the circumstances that team in the overall pressure from the NBA he he was gonna play, but he wanted is aimed at the believe that he was keeping out. So he was willing to go to the point even to, to look to look like the bad guy in the black hat to the public, just to make the point to Isaiah that see I'm gonna get out still going to get you and get you back for all this. And to me, that's what made this, this feud transcendent among any that's ever been..
"ahah" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"I'm guessing that pretty much every teams got one. How you imagine your break every game down? You're gonna you have an inclination towards it. It's amazing. And the more I get into that. The more I realize the good coaches like in baseball. They say coaches are all almost all replacement Lavaux and Billy bean didn't really pay coach because he thought it was not worth. It wasn't getting value. I know NFL exalts coaches, but just seems to me MBA, especially in the playoffs coaching matters a lot more than than I realized, I think, or I and I, great example with Kerr's like Golden State's been playing this pick and roll with current. It's been so effective throughout the play offs. And in game one it wasn't very effective, and what? Curry, dente fide, is that they just double teaming Steph through the rushing Steph and he started running, all his pick and rolls like eight feet further from the basket effectively use a hockey term getting a PowerPoint when they doubled stuff, and now it's four on three to get the goal good stuff. That's defendthem, RJ, bow shifting gears last thing with the NBA and I'm gonna say this quick, but I think it's interesting is the idea Bill Simmons. He knows the NBA. Bill Simmons once had something to say about you. Let's listen, he says FAZ is the number one gambler right now as the number right now, the number one game that was an old house. An old tape. All right. The Simmons knows basketball, and he made up a list on his podcast of the biggest narratives or storylines entering any NBA finals since nineteen eighty, I think it was the number one was Chicago Bulls. They're six title, and it was I this is the last ride last round up. And that's how story he had number two. Magic Johnson and is Ahah Tom is having their conflict or whatever that was number two in his mind. Let's Mailer something he missed but he knows basketball. I would make the case this year. The best player on a dynasty. We're saying best player around Durant. I think is about player in most situations. Maybe not this one. Durant is ninety percent to leave, you know, very like relief and co is much that people might say, oh, I think China from what I hear ninety plus percent, the idea that each of those stories individually, I think are bigger, the magic versus Isaiah. The best player in his championship series. Team is leaving likely. It's kinda wow. The thing that with four almost forty years of basketball, the number two in the number three biggest storyline entering any finals was this year. And then I started thinking doesn't feel like we that. They talked about it all that much dawned on me. They've been talking about this freaking December. So in a way it's talked out. It's like what you say. Oh, Durant party leaving. But if you just look at it from Heywood is the reality at the start of these play offs. Maybe the second third. Biggest story in the hill, or in the last forty years of the NBA finals, specifically the finals. I let's go NFL little bit. Avai get behind the ropes Vegas low jeopardy than bass bat. We're going with vigor Todd Gurley FAZ. I mean we were down on radio row. And I would make the case of any national host that we the show, I as the host pounded, my fist MOS that the NFL was being. Darah licked when it came to reporting the injuries in a way that we could trust and nine the whole time. I'm like didn't make you know what logic could it be the girlies playing. What was it? Four carries or something and a key game in the playoffs. Yeah. Exactly. So Jay Anderson getting the bulk of the carries ex. I mean not the bog it was I four and one game. Right. For girl. Yeah. And everyone else. Shrug it into me. It's all about the following again, having, at least academically a finance background. You understand what the SEC dies is along musk. He says something on Twitter that is, you know, feels like wasn't that big of a deal. And I think he got fined twenty million dollars. I said you're trying to the markets. Now.

What you say I play you sound bite of somebody at Trump's rally saying shoot immigrants Trump and his audience laugh. How does that make an idiot? I. Play. I read you tweet from Franklin Graham, saying Trump should have two more years tacked onto his first term because of the two that were stolen and then Trump retweets it apparently obviously expressing his agreement. How does that make an idiot when Trump blatantly shows dictatorial inclinations, I'd like to know what have I said that wasn't true. I played you sound bites from the worst morning show in the history of television, FOX and fuck what is big out the debt with his name on it. And then I tell you the truth that the boat was repossessed. How does that make an idiot? Why aren't they idiot because they lied to? You didn't tell you that he couldn't afford the big boat, and it was repossessed. Is that what you people call someone who tells you the truth and idiot. No wonder you love Donald Trump.

What do you think about these people will live in an ultimate reality? I think we are just fine while adjusted and and we'll be victorious in the end. The reason why. They haven't died a clue what you're trying to get them as actual information because I spent two hundred hours a week allowing their minds to be poisoned with crap from a state one propaganda media. They know and have had proven to them on countless occasions just on this show lies to them. For example, one this week the big boat. They didn't tell them that the boat was repossessed. New York, I'm well aware Trump family history. And I've known some decades. This is a family. There's no way of getting around. Dad? I know, and you know, it's funny because his father at least while he was Griffin was profitable. And the only time he lost money was invested in Trump's schemes. Two story about one of the casinos that was going on. It was his dad by millions of dollars in trips yet caped single, I read that. That's that's a great story. I mean, it is it just shows what Griffin. These people are when they set up that that shell company that construction company, and they would Mark up the cost of things they bought and the mother the money went when Fred would pay the money to this shell company, the money was still go into his company, but they transferred it to the kids. So they couldn't see what a scam. It was. And then they use the marked up price to charge. The tennis more. I mean, they are criminals. Amazing.

"Doug Martin f rise Ahah Crowell towards achilles during a workout on Tuesday. So that's really the first one of the spring injuries bribe. But there will be more. I mean, that's just the reality. There will be more. That's what happens this time of year. It's always unfortunate, especially non contact injuries. But you know, these are grown men who've played a lot of football. There can be wearing tear on their joints, tendons, whatever and sew supposedly, by the way, marshawn Lynch is open to coming back to. I don't know if that was before after crow L Tories achilles. But at any rate, the raiders re-signed Doug Martin who did some decent things for them last year. We'll see if marshawn Lynch gets back in the mix. I tend to doubt it now that they have Josh Jacobs. But who knows as for a die and Najji good and Romy Wilson, it's kind of that time of year Bri where after the draft teams look at their depth. And we'll say we could really use a vet year. We could really use a guy that we know we're getting something from here. And that's how it works. And that's that's basically how that unfolds. A lot of teams might if it's a minimum guy. I don't think the contract qualifies for being a consideration or a concern regarding the compensatory pick formula if it's if it's more money than that though. They wait till like March seventeenth or something. Like that is the date whereby the guy no longer qualifies in the compensatory pick formula, which we know is so important to these teams. So that those are possibilities right there in terms of when they wait some teams also wait till after the mini camps. They wanna see what the young guys can do before they signed any veteran give the young guys a lot of reps in otas minicamp. See how quickly they pick things up before deciding whether or not they need to add somebody else. Jeez. Be while Jack conklin ally apple shack Lawson and Liqun Treadwell among the players who will not have their fifth year options picked up. So instead, they're just heading there last year their contracts. Correct. And there's probably even more daring lead from the jets. Andrew Nye Inge. Brent and I talked about this yesterday. It's not a good sign. I mean, if you're not getting your fifth year option picked up it's really not a good sign. I mean, there's just no other way around it conklin been injured, but there's a ton of risk other than if you can't pass a physical in March. And I guess these teams don't even want to take that chance. Don't even want to set that that negotiating point for conversation. I guess they look at it. As if the guy has a great year, they'll either they either have a three month head start to sign them as a free agent or they can franchise tag him. Jeez. And in other news ESPN and announced it the Monday night football booth will be Joe tests tour and booger McFarland next year.

Right long has a million dollar roster bonus need kind of waiting to see whether or not he wants to play supposedly. It's really come down to his role, which I think is interesting. He doesn't wanna play unless he's getting a lot of playing time and has a big role, which I think is really interesting. I mean, I would think adad age that he'd rather just rush the passer just have a rotation of role get the money stay fresh. So that's an interesting discussion for Chris. I'd like to actually talk to him about that that that's what's important to him bears. Hiring Brad Childress. There's a situation where you know. He's got a very good relationship with Matt Nagy and.

"They only have three possessions where they pass the ball more than three times in a single half core possession. They had a lot more miss shots. They had those six turnovers and even on that kyri drive. There's four white jerseys around you somebody's roping. In fact, three people are open. You know, you've gotta be able to recognize that NBA facility and not force the issue as much. No, no, no, I agree. But when you look at Boston in their struggles over the course of this year that was kind of their MO when we saw game one. Now, we understand that Indiana. Would that that was not like that was not the best thing that they were gonna play. So you're like, okay. Well, let's see we're all excited about this. And then they came out and played a great brand of basketball. Everyone was moving. Everyone was scoring. But then all of a sudden when they struggle look what it was. It was a little too much one on one and a little my turn your turn. So there's only the fourth time in the history of the NBA the teams split the first games of a playoff series with each winning by at least twenty points. So where do we stand here? In fact, I'm going to throw it open to the whole east. All right because this is a pretty wide open east conference semifinals over these four teams in each of them has one. One game. So of what we've seen so far Richard which looks like the best team in the east to you right now. I still like Milwaukee I'd like to walk because consistently. That's what they're gonna do. They didn't change too much. They changed the starting line of Ameritech. They put him in there for for the most part. They just played harder. They've played harder. They played with a little bit more intensity. And for a team that hasn't experienced the playoffs. Right. That much for the Milwaukee Bucks. I think that they're just going to continue to play harder as they figure it out. Not a surprise, obviously. With these fourteen we've been talking about this for the last couple of months when we look at Eastern Conference is that these four teams are so competitive, and so type to me it's still the raptors that's who I've been talking about when I come on the show with you guys. And I believe that Colli Leonard and his impact in particular, his understanding of being these situations his desire to be the guy that you're talking about a guy who's been a finals to finals MVP, obviously. But you you add in PASCAL as well and his overall improvement from where he was a year ago to where he's at now, I think the raptors have the makeup necessary because it takes pressure off. Lowery to not have to be that guy was Seok them stepping up. I think the raptors are gonna win the centrist because we began this season. I think talking a lot about Boston and Philly and in your guys scenario, we're going to lose both of them here in this round. And that would mean Kyrie irvings time in Boston perhaps comes to an end we had a very interesting discussion yesterday, the hall of fame rise Ahah Thomas was sitting right there. We brought up the notion that it is widely speculated that Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving, I'm gonna wind up teaming together somewhere, maybe here in New York next year. And as you'll hear right now is Ahah said he doesn't like it. I don't see these to be in a good fit because they have the same skill set. I mean kyri and Kevin Durant. They're both ball dominant. What makes Kevin Durant effective in Golden State is that Klay plays off the ball. And Steph plays off the ball. When you look at Kyrie Irving. He's a ball Dominic guard. He wants to handle the basketball put Kyrie in Durant together. Which one of them is going to be the ball dominant person in which one is gonna play off the vault. So I was a really interesting conversation in Jalen, I sold regretted that you were not here yesterday to hear your reaction. But I finally can now do you agree with his notion? Kyrie and Kevin Durant are not really suited to play. I disagree with my childhood, Idaho..

"So I think there's a lot of outside questions when it comes to Robin. The Lakers, very it's very is Ahah Thomas in New York. Turn this thing. Into a dumpster fire. You deserve a promote. Right. But here's the thing to your point. There is the backlash on social media with that I've seen and look, you know, you mentioned magic getting booed. I saw I was at a game where a guy was heckling Jeanie Buss. You know what I'm saying? Like, I don't think that those are things that people around here are used to with the Lakers. That is not a thing. Six years since they made the playoffs in an organization that it only missed it. What five times before? So there are a lot of people don't know what to do and are freaking out there within their right to me. You know what I mean? To go to a Laker issue Laker game. But at the same time, if you think about it players management owners, it's hard to develop your overall because every everybody wants things to happen. Now. You know, what I mean genie was new being an owner. You know, what I mean she's been on the outside looking in. She learned the ropes, obviously. But actually sitting in that seat is a mother, you know, what I mean, and then management, you know, you hire to inexperienced guys. Although magic, you know, as as a great ambassador, whatever experience inexperience, you know, what I mean? So people won't LeBron comes to a young inexperienced team. So everyone thinks that they're going to catch lightning in a bottle. And all of a sudden, this was a process to me a lot maybe a two year three year at the most process to where they could have been contending for championship. And I think the fact that everyone thought it was going to happen overnight, and it didn't. And then magic realized okay. We've started, you know, possibly a fire here, it free agency isn't looking as good as I thought it was be they're not really allowing me to do what I want to do. So I'm not going to continue to take the heat for everyone. I don't need this. You know, I've got plenty of money in my business or mazing a great life. I'm not going to be the shield for this franchise. If you don't allow me to do what I'm going to do. And I think he probably would have said more if he didn't love and have so much respect for genius really probably tell us all we want to hear it how he feels. But I think I respect for genie. He just kind of did it the way he did. He's going to step away because he's like, I'm not going to be this bulletproof vest anymore. If I can't do what I wanna do. Matt Barnes hanging out with his spend lines. Let's grab a couple of calls your age in Pasadena. What's up, h hey, George, you got a great show. And I'm glad you keep it real compared to Mason in Ireland. Charlie works with the Lakers. And so he's got to be that way. Macy's, you know. You know, he he puts it out there a little bit. But nobody like you. And and I appreciate Ben and Matt being out there and being real with it. You know, it reminds me of the Knicks. You know, when they had Isaiah, and the mess that was created there. And and I think that what I see. Anyway is when Ramona, you know reported on the jump you know, that the two aren't talking Lukin magic. You know, it kinda was just like, you know, this is it man Pelinka's manipulatives way. Pelinka if you go back, and look, and you guys all know this, okay? Tell them was Kobe's agent and Pelinka worked for tell them, you know, and tell them was instrumental in Palinka getting to where he got. And then what did you do? He stabbed him in the back and took it to Kobe and left and ordered his own thing. And it's just the same thing now. And if Jeanie Jeanie doesn't want to allow somebody to run the show the right way. Okay. And not just have friends. You know, she's got Linda Rambus and certain people con man, it's about winning and. This this too good would organization if she can't do it.

I really do. Can I out line the ways for you? Yeah. Please. Please explain. Yes. Well, there's two fairly legitimate sides to the debate Paul Pierce is better than Dwayne Wade. Where the case he just outlined in his very old, man way. And then there was his co host Jalen rose making the reverse case and slightly humiliating reverse case for Dwayne Wade.
Isaiah Thomas wears green sneakers as nod to Celtics in return to Boston
"On the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Isaiah Thomas lead the NBA in fourth quarter, scoring he was the closer. And of course, so much has changed since that fateful spring in which his sister died far more important than the basketball, but his sister China died in a car accident in Washington state he played anyway. So this was the eve of their opening round series against the Chicago Bulls. He played anyway, they dropped the first two games in Boston. And then won the next four in a row. I can remember all of this like it was yesterday. They ended up making it to the Eastern Conference finals. And do you know that at the time? Isaiah Thomas had a pair of green and gold sneakers design for the NBA finals they were for the finals. They obviously didn't make it to the finals. But he wore those same shoes. On Monday night in his healthy return. You may remember the controversy last year. I've never talked so much about tribute videos of my life. Oh, make me roll. My eyes Burr member. There was a Paul Pierce night planned to honor the future hall of Famer a longtime Celtic, and he put up a stink publicly when it appeared.

He's changed team. So many times I made that actually might have been. I think it became a moot point. Right. He was with the Cavaliers he ended up before the trade deadline. Getting ship to Los Angeles. And then it didn't matter because he wasn't with the Cavaliers when they were in Boston. And so Paul Pierce had his night without any controversy. And Thomas has been back or his teams have been back. He's played for now. Three teams since Boston. But this was the first time he was healthy enough to be on the court. He only played seven minutes though. When it looked like he was nervous or maybe the news that he's being dropped from the nuggets rotation maybe that room for a loop. I it certainly would most human beings who play sport for a living. And so it wasn't a great night for him. But they did have the video was some really cool moments from his time in Boston. He was all heart, heart and smarts. That's the hashtag that I use for that particular edition of the Boston Celtics who seem like they overachieved, and they Thomas the little engine that could he was a big reason why. But man life comes at fast that was only a year and a half ago. And now think about the arc of Thomas's career any injuries. Of course, that have really changed his speed and his

"You're doing the players. He's the guy putting all this together as made so many bad financial decisions. You seem front of you yell sell the team as long as that guy. I didn't leave his area or break the rules of the security. He's going to get booted out of that building. And he said you might not be able to come back. I don't know. That's that seems extreme. Well, I that people in the building I'm wondering where they have great fan base still why with a bad product, well because they loved bass grade, and they care and because he wants to yell out sell the team. I mean, there's that really heckling. A little bit. Let me but sell the team over the top. Now. I mean, there are other things to say like you could get really personal with somebody. Then I understand where that might be crossing law. But with the NBA has a release you here because they can't the Knicks can't with when it comes up to this lottery or getting a free agent or too because they got rid of porzingas. They got one guy who can play. They what's his name Mitchell Robinsons Robinson's. He's a good player. But you know, it's sad is my existence is, you know, I watch anything. But that one's it's tough to watch the Knicks. And I thought that they were onto something earlier in the season where you get these younger players porzingas coming back. And then maybe you do get a free agent or two. But if I'm let's say, you're an NBA player, your Kyrie and Kevin Durant. Do you wanna play for James Dolan? And I know you don't play for the owner per se, and he doesn't I don't know how involved he is other than he sits there and that product is his and how you cannot be disappointed angry embarrassed with that product out there. That's what surprising you bring in. Isaiah you keep bringing in is Ahah Thomas, you know, coaches it's a carousel there. You know, who's running the team? And that's part of the issue like who is running that team. And are you confident in that team? Now, I did go out and get Phil Jackson and everybody thought. Well, you got Phil Jackson now fill whiffed on Steve Kerr because curb goes, and I can do the Knicks or Golden State. I'm going to Golden State instead of reviving the Knicks and coaching under Phil. And he's like, I don't want that. So they at least tried. I mean, they they went all in on. Phil jackson. Phil wasn't all in on the Knicks because he still wanted to be with the Lakers, but it's a mess because Philadelphia's back, you know, Boston's there the Lakers maybe coming back like you wanna have the Knicks being relevant instead of being an embarrassment and James Dolan's, the worst.

I just happened to be you know, unathletic tongue. So you know, my my game wasn't necessarily sexy. I've played at it. In a much slower pace I had to make even scarier to turn down a six figure job. Yeah. For sure. And I think you know, that's a on my parents because I didn't really know how scary like the work life world can be you know, for for people that maybe a job here. Maybe don't get a job. And and things like that. So I I didn't really have that context. Maybe seventeen years old. If I was if I was scared about being able to ever get a job, then I would have made a different decision. But my parents and powered me to, you know, make the decision felt was true is to to me in my heart. And I fully believe that I was going to go to the NBA at the time. I completely thought one hundred percent I'm gonna go to the packs. Well, I'm gonna kill the for two years, and I'm quoting him being serious. That's awesome. I'm glad your parents believed in you like that and supported that pushed you because obviously it's it's worked out. Really? Well, I won't see why do why do people doubt Spencer Dinwiddie so much. I mean, you look at high school at three. Recruit college. You know, you you did. Well, they obviously. But then you fall to the second round of the draft, you know, early in your NBA career you kinda bounced around a little bit before getting settled. I mean, you're you're not undersized. You're not someone like, they're certainly I look is Ahah Thomas and him, you know, slipping the draft and that everything's he's been through. You know, there are certain guys you can kinda point to one thing and say, oh, that's why or you know, if there's a off-court concerns or whatever. But obviously, there's none really with you. And your super smart guy. Why do you think you all eve always had to overcome something overcome these obstacles and prove people wrong? Like, I said, I think at different times different things, you know, in high school like I said, I'll on I've let it and so my game wasn't as sexy as others in college. Obviously, you're going in with no name. So I had to build a name. I'd have a really good freshman season. Then really good sophomore season and kill the data's nation and do things like that to Bill my name of. But then I also got hurt. So I fell in the draft. And then you know, my my whole MBA situation. I mean, it's been it's been built on perception. And that's kinda the way that the business works. I mean, even now, you know, people doubt things that I can do or or stuff like that. Even though, you know, the proof is kinda in the pudding, you know. But I I can't control those things I can't control people's opinion. I could just go out there, you know, every game. And and try to help the team win, whatever form and fashion. You know, it needs me to do on in on that giving night. So, you know. You use can't you just can't really worry about it.

"Cover that position. This is just the last five years York. So it's not a huge sample. Just going back over the last five years drafts. Fourteen the rating actually last year you had two guys that were undrafted in eighteen in Philippians lean Gus Edwards that were both. Their teams starters by the end of the season. Lindsey was phenomenal quite frankly. Yes. And I think Edwards ended up averaging right around five yards a carry. Now. They ran the ball. Great at what they did. Very very well. But they as a Baltimore I'm sorry to Baltimore Ravens. Thank you for pointing that out. Both guys were their team starters by the end of the year in seventeen. Now, this is perhaps a real outlier but rounds three through five in twenty seventeen Alvin Kamara Kareem hunt recall, Colin James, Connor Marlin MAC in Aaron Jones four guys have already made the Pro Bowl. Now cone win as a special teams guy. But the Pro Bowl not doesn't really. Will acknowledge the fact that they've made the pro four pro bowlers there your Jones looks like he's finally the answer for Green Bay. He's averaging five and a half yards a carry in his career small sample, but still Marlin mecca ten touchdowns last year for crying out loud. All those guys came in rounds three through five in sixteen. It was Kenyan Drake and Jordan Howard. Both very good in fifteen. Tevin Coleman Duke and David Johnson J J Matt Jones who's battled some injuries. But when he's been on the field that you can see the talent. And he's been good for the Redskins in fourteen jerick. Mckinnon another guy who got hurt at the start of this year. Devante Freeman James white and is Ahah Crowell was undrafted. That's a lot of names rounds three through five or undrafted. That's a lot of guy that that's a big number of guys that contribute at that position around the league that you'll be able to find out there somewhere, and there's a running back out there this year that's playing somewhere that didn't while the Heisman Trophy voters. Maybe hasn't. Even made his all conference team because he was being third running back in the gone for one reason or another that's gonna come out of his pack, and is gonna end up making an impact. So find that guys up the Ryan pace to find. That's right. That's up the pace a negative find that gun endless went from college to the pros. It's a different world. It's a different world with a different game. And it takes a unique individual to be able to transfer from college into the pros and then fire, and I mean, fire Dion Sanders came in and instantaneous he fired, you know, some guys come from college. And it's not a problem. Other guys takes a little bit of time. Earl Dotson was an offensive tackle for the for the Green Bay Packers. His first two years. There were dismal awful. They gave him to redshirt years, basically for a chance to kind of figure out who the hell he was that third year thing they stuck with them. They press them. And then he performed they said you've got to go you're either going to go you're going to be out of a job. And guess what he got in there and he played well. And he played better. And better than all of a sudden he was a guy that he could depend on. That's the way it works sometimes. But if you can fire, and you're one of those guys they can't I've seen guys from Nebraska come in. And the last place they want to be is on a pro roster. They want to remember the the glory days a college. That's what they want to. Remember that doesn't work? That's good did in Nebraska. Nobody cares about which did it Oklahoma. Nobody cares about you have to reestablish yourself as a stod, and you've got to have the mental wherewithal to be able to do that. Which means you've got to go ahead and say the hell with what just happened before? I've got to go ahead and do it again for a new set of eyes and new people who are much less tolerant with no red shirt years in the NFL. This was Ryan pace talking about the kicker position. And what you can learn about kickers at the NFL combine because they have acknowledged that they will be cutting Cody parkey when the new league year begins.

"He didn't get the money and everyone. Okay. So do you want to play for a team that will just like handout Kobe Bryant contracts parachute? So that's the thing is that is the perfect example what the Lakers did with Koby was objectively speaking in real time a bad decision for that year and the next year and the year after Laker team. And it was a very good decision for further burnishing the Lakers reputation as a team that takes care of its place. You think what the Celtics did? With is Ahah Thomas was absolutely unequivocally. A good basketball decision for that year the next year and maybe years move forward. They keep Kyrie it was a bad decision. As far as the way, the organization would be looked at by certain players and people close to certain players those things both can be true. But you ask you painted the picture as to why would Anthony Davis not want to be in Boston. I don't know. But he doesn't like the thing is don't matter even if logically. Like, we don't really know of kyri wants to be off. He's been there. Okay. But you guys ever want him. This is this is that true. Or not what the Boston has not one kyri over. We don't know till July. I I don't know. But you said Davis doesn't want to be in Boston. He doesn't want. I it was the Lakers. You only want to be there. But then it's Milwaukee he wants to be there and the clippers and the Knicks what's next list. Who else does he want to go on? I don't know thirty teams.

"Any home project at homeadvisor dot com. That was very quick that was very efficient. Just read what's on the paper man, sometimes while sometimes not so well, but just whatever's on the papers when I read you know, that was what's on the paper. Why did you blast? Anthony Davis father. Why were you wandering around here? Referring to him as ADD. Anthony Davis is debt. Because he does not want. This is so ridiculous. Everything that's going on between LeBron Rich, Paul the Lakers. Anthony Davis his dad, the Pell all of it. I feel bad. I actually feel bad for the pelicans here. But Anthony Davis is dad does not want his son playing the Boston Celtics. What if the pelicans earned or deserved given what they've done for Anthony Davis one hundred plus million dollars. Okay. And but he can get out of that contract. Like that's getting out of the contract. That's the way that works now in the NBA. Those are the new rules of the NBA paid him to fulfil a contract that he is not fulfilled. Okay. I mean Now, Dan this is and then you have Anthony Davis is dad who needs a throw in. I don't want him go on the Boston. Because Boston wasn't loyal ties. Ahah thomas. Are you kidding me? Your son is sitting here not fulfilling a contract not being loyal to his own team. But you don't want them to go to Boston because they weren't loyal is Ahah Thomas who they traded along with Colin sex, the Kyrie Irving that might be a place you want to. Explore playing if he could pull that kind of trade off except he wants to play with LeBron. And that's why he joing LeBron's management. You know, what I agree with Barkley the NBA, Adam silver should stand up to LeBron James and shut the trade Braun is taking us. His stand up to LeBron never, but he should. Funny. Lebron requests extra all star days off and Adam servers like okay, that's funny. Stand up to LeBron James. Well, it does a funny to have your dad's doesn't want you playing for an organization because they're not loyal, y you yourself or not being going to your own organization greed. Agreed. And it is a the point that you're making is a fair one. I just would argue that loyalty in sports is fraudulent and largely only something that fans believe in largely because Kyrie Irving is telling you, I don't know anybody bleep and many of the guys with power and money believe that's fun. He doesn't anyone bleep. I'm fine with that. Whatever Davis owes the pelicans is to is to fulfill the compu- gods that other. No that's not where we are anymore. That is not where we are anymore. If you LeBron brought fulfilled all contracts Ron changed that game. The bronze asking people to do things that he would never do at what we've seen. How many times do you have to see it? Now, the player in basketball has taken back the power from those unstated things in the contract where the team doesn't actually have to be loyal to you. Because without a no trade clause. They never have to fulfill the contract. They can always send you away to a city that you don't want to go to. So now they've been checkmated because the players have the power and LeBron did that LeBron did it with the TV show. And now you're going to have to eat it, all you owners who don't like your two hundred and fifty million dollar max isn't enough nor Orleans betrayed that dude. And I don't blame him for a moment for wanting to get out of there because they've squandered prime years of his career by not building correctly around him. He gave them plenty of time. Right when he played. But here's the thing in a year and a half that he has remaining he can't just why any play that out. And that just go to Lakers. Oh, because we're giving New Orleans a chance to get something for me get outta here. It's not for them..

"It's it's got echoes of national sqi, but both of these guys are taller and in the new lengths three point rangy NBA. You know, you want taller you want bigger you want longer. So, but the potential is tantalizing. But I mean, the health concerns are going to have to be dispelled. There's just no way around it. What do you make this idea that he would take the qualifying offer that report came out shortly after the trade I was skeptical? I, you know, I don't know where. That comes from. I can't speak to someone else's reporting ice. I I would certainly be very very very surprised, and you have you haven't heard anything to that effect yourself. No. I mean since this all went down. I mean, look know the Mavs are going into this with the full intention of we're gonna show this guy. How great it is here, and he's gonna wanna stay. And you know, I don't know if that was a message that was conveyed to the Knicks about taking the qualifying offer and just got carried over. But you know, the Mavs feel pretty good about their ability to to sell Porzingis on how good of a fit Dallas can be for him. You know, he's friends with Dirk Nowitzki already. He's friends with Luca Danni. It's already there is existing relationship with both of these guys. And I think the Mavs are going to let those two even though Dirk obviously is not playing in the long-term Dirk could retire tomorrow. He still going to be part of the fabric in Dallas. He's going to be part of the organization. Station one way or the other. So I think the Mavericks are gonna let Nikki and Donncha kind the lead the recruiting in this case. And I would you know, I would think that has a pretty profound impact on Porzingis. Given he such a big fan of both of those guys yob really interested to see where those negotiations end up with. They just offer them the straight up full boat max contract for five years. Are they're going to be some non guarantees along. The lines of joylin be they'll be interesting to see. But we have so much more to talk about here. I think oh one more thing. You have any idea if you're anything for your masters of like how they plan to use them in the Pullman center a power forward the John for that. All I mean, I think they will. You know, they, you know, they they will keep looking for other bigs that go with him. But I don't know that they're so worried about designations, and you know, they they more. For look they want. They know they need shooting the beauty of porzingas is that when he has been at healthy and at his best he's not just a shooter. But he is a rim protector. He is a guy who is you know, he's not the shooter Novitsky is. But obviously, he's he's much more of a two way player. So I think really more than positions what the Mavs are the Mavs just general approach since since Donncha got here and illustrated almost instantly that he is the real deal a franchise player the mantra his instantly become in Dallas. We just gotta get guys who fit around Luca who fit around Lucas. So I don't know so much that they're worried about positions. It's more just does this guy mesh well with dodge, that's kind of their approached everything are so we got a lot more to get to here with Mark. We gotta get into the latest on the AD saga for sure and the potentially related carry saga as well. Right after this remember nineteen eighty nine big trade deadly. Line that year market wire went to the pistons Adrian Dantley was moved as Ahah Thomas was blamed well nine hundred eighty nine was also the year that the World Wide Web was invented. And we've come a long way since then. So why does it feel like.

Sign says, I have a sessile or so you have that one. I love this guy two thousand and forty seven. All right. Well, I like that always like when the jersey gets ripped it is it's it's masculine and it shows that the game short physical and brutal body parts and the girl Campbell putting his head and dies Ahah Robertson, tearaway rip, but a big noticeable rip. I wonder what the robot lots say about this. The last time we played she called it the whole segment of manufacturer joke as I recall accurately. All right. Look you. Let's hear what happened because there's really no way you can take that any other way. This. Let's see what the robots bridge. Doc that is manufactured joke. Ha ha ha. British accents. But I don't like that one. She's become sentence. He has a sense of humor. Now, she's mocking you. Well, listen. I mean, if you wanna get into how this whole segment is cooked up. We can't. Just go on with it. All right. Here's my prediction. Right. Rob gronkowski. Julian Edelman Edelman for the first five weeks of every calendar year turns into Jerry Rice. So to think that he is now going to get shut down in the Super Bowl your boy, he's going to have a big game. And that what does that mean? Seven for one hundred maybe touch aim higher could be higher. Gronk meanwhile, though, the rope a dope of taking them out of the offense. And all that I think he shows up big in the AFC title game. And you know, the Rams and Wade Phillips are going to say, oh, you know, people are noticing that the patriots have a sneaky like check down boring as hell offense or Radi haircut fleets like seventy nine percent of his passes. The running backs out of that we're going to take that away. So what's going to happen? Gronk who's at two weeks the rest up. He's going to be revitalized. He'll have a big game too. So my prediction is gronk and Ataman go over two hundred and thirty yards and scored two touchdowns combined monster day. I'm very nervous about it. I want to hear what Bridget thinks about this. But you guys are getting killed. So I don't I don't imagine. I'll do well. Plea. She's a robot. Let's hear what she has to say. Work done. You have done it. Again. You are amazing and very cold. Oh. Well, I got it. I win the segment Mark. Mark. I'm gonna find this robot in the offseason take her apart bit by bit. I always feel uncomfortable.

I'm Jeremy Siegel today was the big day for California's US Senator comma, harass people in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other. That is not who we are. That is not our America in her hometown of Oakland, the former state attorney general officially launched her twenty twenty presidential campaign, take you it's politics in government editor Scott Shafer was at the rally, and Scott, I know you've been to a lot of campaign events over the years. What stood out to you today? Well, Jeremy first of all the size. It was a big one people were packed into Frank Ogawa plaza around city hall, you could FARs the I could see there were crowds. Also, it was a young crowd. I thought although diverse also there were many women a lot of people brought their kids, and there were a lot of people just very enthusiastic to be supporting. Someone from their hometown from their region. And so I think there was a lot of enthusiasm. She's not the best speech giver, Kamala, Harris. But I think you'll have a lot of time to work on that between now and the primary and Scott Harrison, Oakland native. That's obviously part of why she had the rally in Oakland today. But is there any other significance for choosing the city for the rally? I mean, it's many ways the heart of the resistance against the Trump administration. It is that's a good point. But you know, it also gave her a chance talk about her biography. She mentioned that her parents were both immigrants mad at UC Berkeley. She got her start as a prosecutor in Alameda County, many years ago, I was thinking back to the last statewide official from California to announce that they were running. It was Pete Wilson. He was governor back in nineteen ninety five and he did it in New York in front of the statue of liberty. It's a lot harder to get enthusiastic crowd than it is to do it in your hometown of Oakland. And I think that was part of the reason that it was just drew a lot of people that knew her and lichner Harris has a long history here in California. And also in San Francisco. As a prosecutor. She was district attorney in San Francisco, and then was the state's top cop as attorney general. Do you think that will help her or hurt her in this run? We'll probably a little bit of both. I mean, she's definitely portraying herself as a prosecutor it gives her credibility when she's talking about things border like transnational gangs and human trafficking that sort of thing and actually Sonia Hudson, my colleague, our colleague from K Q with he talked to one person in the crowd. His name was Ahah Kane who had this to say about her background as a prosecutor. The prosecutor I think she'll probably be able to address some issues in mistruths spread throughout the current administration more directly than other candidates would. That's I think there are those both on the left. You say she wasn't progressive enough who will be criticizing her. And then some on the right who are also going to be not happy with the fact that she didn't seek the death penalty. When somebody killed a police officer from San Francisco, she was the DA at the time and Senator Harris announced that she was running last week on television. Then she gave a speech shortly after added alma mater Howard University. Now today, we have this official launch an Oakland. Are we seeing any singular campaign message emerge yet? Well, the fray she's using his for the people, which of course, is what prosecutors say when they go into the courtroom on here, representing the people. And so it gave her a chance to kind of fill out her biography, it gave her a chance to sort of underline underscore the themes of that she's sort of four quote the little guy again.

"ahah" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"He'll play forever. A shack Mason's their best offensive lineman. Twenty-five John Bentley a rookies. Twenty two won the starting job last year as a rookie linebacker and got hurt. And that's something. Interesting here to rookies popped for them in camp is Ahah win a first rounder and Joon Bentley a fifth rounder. They also had Duke Dawson, Braxton various they all got hurt. So they have four young players to John Bentley and is AOL win. They think are going to be stars and play this year. One starting roles didn't play. They also have twelve draft picks. So they'll actually become one of the middle to younger teams in the league next year as grunk term expires. So don't forget this number one Brady had very good numbers considering element didn't plan September grommed pretty much the shot fighter and no deep threat. They still had very solid offensive numbers. They are. Twelve draft picks. And actually you could count it as sixteen because four draft picks last year, they were planning to play major minute to in fact, look like stars in camp had one starting roles. So there is this idea. Don't forget the NFL is a year to year proposition, the three teams I'll guarantee you. That are good next year. Gonna be good Kansas City New England and the colts everybody else year to year proposition. Generally, I leaned the Steelers, but we thought Baltimore was that. And they wrote it for about three years straight until this year with the Mark Jackson. Nobody takes Texan seriously. They employed in the playoffs. We liked the chargers. They just melted down. And they plan a top division. We don't know what we're getting with Gruden Sam darnold. Adam gates could be interesting, but it's a dysfunctional organization. So you know, what Andy Reid says is I'm looking at tape. I don't see the decline. Line. And what I think a lot of people misunderstand New England has a chance to be very young next year outside of Brady, and he's not showing huge decline. It is a very good draft for the two things. New England needs tight end and a wide receiver and a deep draught not a ton of stars deep draft with both. They've got six picks in the first three rounds twelve overall. And I think a lot of people are forgetting. Four draft picks last year got hurt didn't play too had earned starting roles got hurt. So this is this is really going to sustain this thing. Bella check still the best coach in the league. It is still arguably the best home field vantage in the AFC and Brady's Brady Greg Cosell top of the hour. It's interesting James harden went crazy last night. And I've said this for a long time that there's a lot of things as you gain power in life as you gain income as you gain experience. There's a lot of things you can do in life that you shouldn't necessarily do in life. James harden took thirty four shots last night. Six time. He's done it in January thirty plus shots there to inform these games. Now. Chris Paul is hurt Clint cappella too, so they're not a great basketball team. And obviously his usage rate will increase but last night, it was fairly remarkable of the hundred fifteen point. He is scored in two games. There have been zero assists. He's basically not passing. It should be noted Steph curry do this too when Kevin Durant hurt, and he never does James harden is more of a day traitor Steph. Curry is a financial planner a day traders number one concern is what can I make in the next twenty four hours a financial planner?.
