Spartanburg County Deputy Shot in Line of Duty Dies

"That doesn't mean we should ever forget that generally the men and women in blue are the good guys. And this sheriff in Spartanburg county, sheriff chuck Wright, he's a good guy. He really is. Every community would be blessed to have a chief or a sheriff like him. And he pointed out that they found the animal who ambushed and murdered this sheriff's deputy, Austin Aldridge, 25 years old. 25 years old, been a sheriff's deputy for about three years. Whole life ahead of him, committed to serving his community, ambushed by some evil subhuman. Now, they found the guy there was a shootout and the other sheriff's deputies, cornered the guy, apparently in the Woods he was found lying next to his rifle. Instead of just blasting away and murdering him, killing him. Which, frankly, well, I won't say it. As sheriff, chuck Wright pointed out, our men showed great restraint knowing that one of our guys had just been ambushed and didn't fire any shots at the suspect they just arrested him. Chuck Wright, the sheriff of Spartanburg county pointed out, we are the good guys. We do it right and we did it right. I just ask you to pray for our deputy.

"For 25% off your order. Well, Alex, last time we had you on the show, it was to talk about the latest on Kyrie Irving. We're basically a quarter of the way through the regular season now. Where do things stand there? Are there any updates or has it just been crickets? Not really. I mean, we've asked Steve Nash every few weeks and he'll just say they keep in touch and they don't really talk about basketball. So that seems to have become his go to line when asked about him. Kyrie's kind of flown under the radar. No one has publicly shared anything about what might be up for them with shaping if he's working out and his teammates haven't really divulged if they're talking to him or what that interaction's like. Does it seem like the nets are expecting him back at all? Or does it seem like they kind of moved on? I think it's definitely out of sight out of mind for them right now. You know, their stance seems to be. If he wants to come back great, you know, they've kind of, I don't draw on the line. Is the word because I mean, it is the city mandate of being vaccinated to get in a Berkeley center. So they've just kind of let their stance be known. He hasn't been shy with where he stands. And it just seems like that really hasn't changed. Well, we did the big picture flyover of the nets 15 and 6 start to the season earlier. But focusing a little bit more is there a glaring weakness you see on this nets team? Yeah, a few, actually. I mean, their depth has already been tested, you know, Joe Harris is out. One of the league's top three point shooters for it looks like up to two months after just undergoing ankle surgery this week. Nick claxton, who's arguably their best offender, has mistimed you in a non COVID illness and that really seemed to impact his conditioning. He's still ramping up to get back with them. They're not a very good rebounding team. They're ranked towards the bottom of the NBA in rebounding. They rank towards the top of the NBA in three point shooting percentage, but they don't really have a lot of healthy shooters right now. So they only really rely on a handful of players and if an injury happens to any of them, especially without Kyrie, obviously they're in more trouble. And if one of Kevin Durant James horn has an off night, that's not often, but if it were to happen, who steps up is kind of a bit of a guess at times. And finally, Alex, coming back to Lamarcus Aldridge, when it's time for him to retire. Can he do it? Or does he need to win a championship to feel like he accomplished what he set out to do? And then he can feel content retiring. I mean, I think he should already be proud of what he's just gone out to do. You know, I mean, coming back from a heart issue, he's made over $200 million his career sent an all star appearances, no Hall of Fame caliber resume. I mean, no one would have blamed him if he retired given the reasoning he had for it, but I think right now you know he's happy he's healthy and he's still showing that he has something to give an NBA team. So it might be a while before we answer that question. Well, thank you so much Alex for telling us the story. Thank you for having me.

"Out. Like, oh, okay. You know, he went back to his apartment in Brooklyn, his heart was still racing. And he just was up all night dealing with until he started texting team doctors until 7 at 8 a.m. and that whole experience spooked him. And it's like, all that research was kind of like first down the drain with one game because then I had never been in that position for. It was a very scary night for me. A scary experience during the game. A few days later he tweets that he was retiring, which was a bombshell to everybody at the time. He went to the hospital for an irregular heartbeat and retired. Today, Lamarcus Aldridge, jockey, says it's time to put my health and family first. So he retired from the NBA at age 36, and with 15 seasons under his belt, how did he start spending his time? And how did he deal with that transition? He was searching for himself. He made an appearance on NBA TV, you know, kind of see if he'd be interested in maybe getting on our side of things with the media. He dabbled in some real estate and commercial stocks and he talked about, you know, with our own sham Shirai in a sit down in June about battling depression, you know, he wasn't expecting to have to walk away like this. You know, he said he was having a lot of fun playing for the nets. And obviously, you know, as we've discussed before on this podcast, I mean, the nets came very close to the Conference Finals last year with Kevin Durant's shot over PJ Tucker. He said that was a hard series to watch. Because I think if you're a competitor and you always feel like you can help and you could try to make things better. So it was definitely tough watching it. And I did feel like, you know, if I was hearing, I could have definitely done something. Kyrie ever got hurt in that series James Harden came back injured in that series. It was really just the Kevin Durant show for most of that series against Milwaukee. So he said it was tough just watching Kevin Carey the nets without much of a supporting cast and wonder what could have been if you were healthy and able to help him. So he's out of the game, trying to figure out what's next. When does he get that spark of an idea that maybe he could come back? It's funny. I asked him this specific question and he said, he doesn't have an exact moment of realizing that he could play again. He described that whole period of his life that we've been touching on as a bit of a blur. And throughout all this, he was trying to find a way to just stay in shape while retired. So, you know, he would be trying to just get on a treadmill and see if he could just work out like, you know, you or I would without having issues with his heart. I just remember each step I took, you know? He just felt better and better. I felt more confident with, you know, he said that I passed and you know, I think. And that's kind of we really went to his comeback was he was able to kind of slowly build from that without really any issues with doctors monitoring him at the same time. But as you wrote, while everything was headed in the right direction with his health, it wasn't so simple as just snapping his fingers and getting back to the NBA. Can you tell us about some of the hurdles he had to clear there? Yeah, so first he needed clearance both from the NBA's doctors and then the net sent to Rome to clear him. And in truth the bigger pushbacks he got was one from his agent Jeff Schwartz of excel who kind of thought maybe, you know, how about you take a little more time on this, you really think it through? And then also, you know, that's general manager Sean marks. He said to him, you know, why would you do this? But I tried to talk him out of it, you know? You don't need this. Why would you come back, you know? And I think it's important to see the conviction. And if you want to see the passion on this play and the urge and not that he was just bringing the sky back to kind of feel like he could do it again, but also, you know, that he wants it as bad as they want it for him. And that's exactly what he got. That's why he's back with the team. Hey, I'm still capable of helping his team win. I still can bring some to the table. So that's why, because I still love the game. I want to play. So Lamarcus Aldridge gets clear to return, officially rejoins the nets. And his season started a little slowly, but you wrote about a big milestone moment in late October. Help us relive what happened in the second half against the pacers and why it was so significant. Yeah, so when Lamarcus retired, he was 49 points shy of the 20,000 point mark and prior to him only 47 people had reached that Pinnacle and you haven't Durant talked a bit about how when Lamarcus retired, he realized how close he was to that and he's like, man, you know, he came so short, you know, and that Adam a bit. And I'd actually ask him a few games before if he knew how close he was in 20,000 points, and he said, he wasn't really keeping track of that. What he did take the time was the rest of the team was and kind of reminding him monitor he was conscious of it. So, you know, here's Lamarcus in the huddle against the pacers. Friday night hoops at Barclays center out of the timeout Craig met by Durant. That's how he trolls Kevin Durant. I think I'm a basket away and Kevin Durant said I want to pass you. I want to have the historic assist on it. Patients defense had other plans. They kind of blitzed Kevin and he had to get rid of both. Durant gives it up. Carter mismatch. Aldridge really feeling it. Marcus Aldridge has now cracked the 20,000 point plateau in his career. 48 year he was laughing on his way down to court. He was kind of pointing at Kevin like didn't go the way we thought, but here we are. Came out of retirement to return to this team felt there was unfinished business that's been a mantra for this organization and gets to experience that. 20,000 points. Less than 50 he's talked about since his time back how after having the game taken away from him in such a unique sudden circumstance he has tried to live in a moment more. You know, just soak in the moments more, you know, enjoy the camaraderie and you know just being here. And I think, you know, when you see life, I Kevin Durant, running down the court after that shot against the patient that really kind of comes out.

"aldridge" Discussed on The Lead

"Game pick and pop. That has become a routine site for the Brooklyn Nets this season. Lamarcus Aldridge, knocking down mid range jumpers. But when you're watching him play, it's almost easy to forget that not that long ago, it looked like his career was over. After 15 years in the league, Lamarcus Aldridge announced he is retiring from the NBA, writing on social media that he played his last game on April 10th with an irregular heartbeat. Today, we're joined by Alex schiffer, who covers the nets for the athletic to look at why the 36 year old big man made the dramatic decision to return to the NBA, and his surprising role as X Factor for the top team in the Eastern Conference. From wondering in the athletic, I'm Tiffany osinski. It's Friday, December 3rd, and this is the lead. Alex, the last time the nets took the floor, it was at home against the Knicks on Tuesday. Now, when the mets and Yankees play is obviously called the subway series, but do you have a catchy name or a favorite name that already exists for the next Knicks matchup? A lot of people call the battle of the burrows, which makes sense. The Knicks play Manhattan, and that's play in Brooklyn, but I don't think that's been trademarked or really marketed that much. So, you know, it's just usually across town meeting of sorts and that's about as far as the branding goes. I think you got to come up with something, get it stamped on there so that everyone starts talking about it and then you can be like, I made that up. That's a strong ass to say. It took one marketing class in college. Exactly one. So we'll see, but keep the bar low for me. Well, Brooklyn picked up their 15th win of the season in that game. They're now 15 and 6 heading into the weekend. What has stood out to you about how this team has played? Yeah, I think two things stand out more than anything else I mean, they've defended very well. They've surprised themselves in a sense, you know, they're a top ten defense and talking to people who are on the team and even Steve Nash, I don't think any of them saw that coming. And secondly, I mean, they're tops in the east as you said, but a lot of their loser teams that you would look at as their fellow contenders. You know, they've lost the Golden State, Charlotte's playoff team. Miami, there's a lot of those types of losses. The bulls give them a hard time in Chicago. So they don't really have a bad loss, but given that they kind of came into the season as the title favorites, even without Kyrie Irving, the fact that they're still struggling to beat those teams kind of makes you wonder what's going to look like on postseason time. Well, as for the guy we're planning to focus on today, Lamarcus Aldridge, how would you describe his role for this team? Yeah, I mean, it's changed over the course of the season, though. He started out coming off the bench as kind of that anchor for the reserves when Kevin Durant James Harden were getting arrested seal and Marcus on the floor with a lot of guys that were more defensive oriented and now you know he's played so well that he's starting alongside Kevin Durant and James Harden and his numbers aren't what they were when he was a 7 time all star, but he's averaging 13.6 points per game, 6 rebounds, he's shooting 57% from the field and 38% from three. And he reads the league in mid range percentage, which is in the low 60s, but yeah, he's become The X Factor for this offense in that there are 11 and two in games where he scores ten or more points. So we're here today to look at Lamarcus Aldridge's journey into retirement and back. And what ultimately made him decide to return to the leak. So let's rewind to this past April. Your story on the athletics started with this image of Aldrich at home after a nets game. You know, he can't sleep, his heart is racing. Can you pick up the story from there? Yeah, let's rewind it back even a little more than that. You know, so earlier that evening, the nets had played the Lakers and it was a weird game because you know the nets didn't have their big three. It was Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James set out that game, but the Lakers still blew out anyway. And Lamarcus Aldridge, he played decently and Aldrich. Talk about nice footwork clearly Lamarcus Aldridge still has plenty left in the tank. He shot 5 free from the field, but you could tell that he wasn't really in a great groove of sorts. And after the game, he addressed the media, he blames the loss on himself. No, it stars with me. I started out kind of passive tonight. And I think that was kind of contagious for everyone else, you know. It was hard to get going tonight, but no excuse to solve. And he kind of came to elaborate later on that he has an extensive history with wolf Parkinson white syndrome, which is a hard element that impacts the electricity the heart that leads to a regular heartbeat. He's had it since his rookie year. And he's had multiple surgeries over the years and, you know, over the course of the time he's got doctors all over the country, they had kind of give him like a checklist for okay when your heart rate picks up or when it feels a little regular, it's going to stabilize at some point. And against the Lakers are just never did. So if you have this checklist in your mind of something you've dealt with your whole career and how to get out of it and you do all three of those things and you don't get out of it,.

"It's physical now now. I know i'm different now. It's like you see me as a you. Different the ten thousand foot view. The ten year goal the reason that we have adaptive training academies certification course is because we're bridging this gap. There's a huge gap between people with impairments sitting on the couch. Things are challenging. Bears entry everywhere. No way am i about to go into a crawfish. Emory friggin meet. No way not even let alone any typical global gym so it's like very intimidating and then you have the trainers you have the gym owners. You have the staff. These individuals want people with disabilities adaptive individuals in their gym for sure. You're a jerk if you don't if you're like no no no we don't want those here like what. How dare you right so they want him. But then there's always a but and the but is i don't feel qualified. i'm not. I don't know how to safely and effectively put them through a program. I wouldn't want to you know. Make their condition worse or injure them further. So i just i should i should. I wish i could but i can't. I can't. That's the typical industry standard. So we changed that after training academy changed that. That's what the adaptive and inclusive trainer certification. Does it allows you to have not only the knowledge but also the confidence the tools and skills to safely and effectively trained any human being in human being. Because that's all that this is. It's building the bridge between the two so that now when the individual with disability is saying you know what i've heard all this i've seen logan on a podcast and he just won't shut up about saying how we got to get fit and go do stuff all right. Let's see what's in my area. Let me look it up. And then they go to eight hundred dot fit and look at the map and they see that. There's three gyms in their area. That are adaptive training academy certified gyms. So they'd go there and they know it's accessible. It can be in a wheelchair. As all the compliance things approved in there also have trainers that are knowledgeable certified in the training so we start to build comfort and confidence in the offerings and get folks involved and going and then that in five years from now becomes normal. It's normal yeah. I mean so much has changed since your accident in two thousand and four. You hadn't even heard the term adoptive athlete until what two thousand fourteen so just and you have so much momentum right now the evolution you can can help happen in the next years. They'll be really exciting to watch as much as i wish. I could keep hammering you with questions. We do have to wrap this up. I would like to end on a serious two part question though.

"And then McLaughlin was a big time score. I want to say you see Santa Barbara maybe. If I remember correctly, I'm going to look just because, you know, I don't like to get things wrong. But yeah, he was a big time scorer in college. So we'll see he played for the warriors. UC Santa Barbara, I was correct. He played for the warriors at summer week. So we'll see what he can do for Dallas as a two way player. So that's what we're in right now. Millsaps off the board now. So there's a couple other interesting veterans, James NS, Avery Bradley, or so out there, but it's pretty much dried up at this point. So you're going to see over the next two, three weeks, you're going to see a flood of camp signings as teams are bringing guys in for camp. A lot of these guys will get maybe up to 50,000 guaranteed because that's the most you can give a player and I guarantee and then still have them play for your G league team. So we're going to see a lot of that. And then you're going to see teams fill out their two way spots for the most part. We're down to. I don't think we've talked this, but we're it's tweaked a little bit now, but there's only two teams, Phoenix and Portland are the only two teams who don't have their own dealing team. Because Denver picked up the former Detroit team as Detroit created a new team to be their team. So yeah, so yeah, and then this year, barring everything going the way it's supposed to, the G league will add to Mexico City team this year, but they're unaffiliated, so they don't have an affiliate team. I'm not quite sure why Phoenix doesn't just jump on that and work with them. But they're not but Phoenix actually sold their team to Detroit, which is how Detroit now has a team. So as you're G league update there. But yeah, it's one of those things where Adam silver said multiple times he wants all 30 teams to have a GE team, having affiliate. And then we, of course, we have the ignite, we'll be back. And it sounds like they're going to in the bubble..

Los Angeles Lakers Could Fill out Roster With DeAndre Jordan

"Just give us a little on. What you think's going to happen with andre jordan was traded to the pistons. Everybody's yeah he's going to be out and that means he's going to be the next guy that the lakers will go get what do you say i think he is I think they're the most likely team to get him But there's just. I never say never with bio guys even because this is kind of been the rumor for three or four weeks at this point That this happened in brooklyn and it was just a matter of were they going to do the bio for him was he going to have to be traded. I if it say brooklyn a whole lot of money the fact that they they just save millions of dollars on their luxury tax bill by doing it this way. Also nicer de'andre like deandra got that because he was part of the kevin durant kyrie irving initial big three in in brooklyn and he was just. He's friends with all those guys. They played on team usa together and he was essential for them in signing with the nets. A little while back and it was a him signing that he gets paid twenty million a year that is not his market value. They overpaid for him. In the beginning as part of a like a sign let sign kevin durant and kyrie irving and it was you know finally worked out that way but at some point you make so much money and your they have a lot of guys at that position but they you know straight into detroit. They they They're going to do a buy out. He's going to give back a little bit of money. Detroit gets four second round out of it so they get something And also some other some other complicated salary cap things but we all thought lamarcus aldridge was going to miami. Last year on the market he ended up going to brooklyn so until he clears. Waivers and intel other teams have a chance to approach the andre. I wouldn't i wouldn't say it's likely or expected or anything like that. I would use much more. Vague words. you know. He fits with the lakers. He would fit in that role. I think would have a pretty well defined role and if you're on the buyout market and you're gonna sign for minimum like that's what you're looking for is someplace you can play.

"The brooklyn nets just signed paul millsap which is actually a really good signing and up for them but now they are also the front runners to sign lamarcus aldridge. Who is coming out of retirement if you remember aldridge retired just a few games into his nets time over the last season. Is this a big deal or no deal. This is a no deal. I don't mean to be critical. But when i saw that headline run across the bottom the paul millsap. There was a reasonable reasonable amount of. He's still in the league question marks that came up for me and under this kind of hard to say so. If you're going back to guys who were literally not in the league as well lamarcus aldridge. I mean i just don't see these being impact. Pickups i mean good for them forgetting contracts but it's not. It's not moving the needle for me in the nba circle.

"Prescient. It's it's unclear. Why the critical receptions. His work was somewhat kinder outside of london. I'm not suggesting that there was none of that in the reviews from other parts of the uk but it seemed to be at least toned down a little bit also not totally clear why the reviews seemed so vastly out of step with the audience response to his performances. One theory is that in london. The critics knew that he was really an american from new york and not a from senegal. Another is that social conditions in london including the rise of trade unions and class. Consciousness among workers was priming working class audiences to really like the idea of an actor who was struggling against oppression in a way that journalists weren't quite in touch with regardless of what the causes were for this sort of Disparity between critics and theatergoers after his run as a fellow aldridge returned to acting in london's minor theatres as well as in smaller british towns and cities. He started to get more steady work. Developing a following of passionate fans and building up a steady income at multiple venues critics wrote about his having to basically carry along cast members who were not as skilled in their performance or didn't even know their lines. Eventually he began to expand his repertoire into shakespearean roles that were typically cast with white men including shylock. Richard the third. Hamlet macbeth and lear using makeup to lighten his skin. He basically became a victorian era equivalent of a movie star complete with a legion of adoring fans and a steady stream of female admirers. And this was mainly a true still outside of london. He never really caught on an eye of london society but outside of it he was incredibly popular including developing a string of patrons who made his financial life a lot more comfortable in july of eighteen fifty two. He started his first major european tour including royal performances and heads of state in the audience which was again incredibly well received but still did not win critics over to his side when he made yet another go in london he also started adapting works of his own. Including a complete redoing of titus andronicus in which it's morrish character is the hero. I would love to see that. I'm kind of intrigued. Apparently was kind of uneven his execution And if you're familiar with titus andronicus the character in that play is not a hero at all. No i have not. I don't even know if an adaptation of a copy of that adaptation even still exists. But i am quite intrigued. This tour of the continent also came just a few months after. Harriet beecher stowe's uncle. Toms cabin had i been published. I in the united states and britain and this book stoked anti-slavery sentence sentiment on both sides of the atlantic and it started to further shift the perceptions of aldridge's performance particularly in the role of othello. While that eighteen thirty three coming garden theater performance had been met with pamphlets saying that a black man was unfit to be on the stage in russia in eighteen. Fifty eight one review read quote. I am firmly convinced that after aldridge it is impossible to see fellow performed by a white actor. It garrick himself. And that's a reference to david. Garrick who was a famous british shakespearean actor. Although he would briefly return to britain even be granted. british citizenship on november seventh of eighteen. Sixty three his overwhelmingly positive receptions in france and russia meant that he spent most of the last six years of his career there ultimately making a name for himself is one of history's great tragedian and becoming a bigger draw than russia's most famous actors apparently russia in particular loved him a lot france also especially especially russia although shifting perceptions of race and of the institution of slavery had also changed the way audiences and the press were regarding him. That doesn't mean that the racism was magically over. The later part of his career was beset by unfounded rumors that onstage he had stabbed iago's and suffocated desdemona is four real misled to his co star in moscow refusing to take the stage with him in her role as dimona. His response was quote. I have played that role more than three hundred times in my life and all these times i have suffocated possibly to maximum three does owners and i stabbed think one iago. Obviously it was a joke. It rile people up more biographers. Herbert marshall and mildred stock. Who wrote the definitive biography of him. In the nineteen fifties described this whole incident as quote an out and out case of color prejudice. It was like really a completely unfounded. Rumor based on nothing brick as people were. If he had been an actor at the glum ya'll it would have made him more popular. Oh yeah no. He's he's really he's really smothering. People aldridge continued to tour and perform for the rest of his life although his wife margaret eventually stopped accompanying him a few years before her death on march twenty fifth of eighteen sixty four. She was about a decade older iran. Her health had been poor at that point. Aldridge had been supporting her and illegitimate son. Ira daniel who had been born in may of eighteen forty seven and who margaret raised as her own. It's also unclear whether she knew about this but he had been supporting a second family as well. He'd had two more children with a swedish woman named amanda. Pauline von brandt lease were irene. Lorraina pauline who was born in eighteen sixty. An ira frederick olaf known as fritz who was born in eighteen sixty two and similarly to how margaret had been described as the daughter of an mp. Amanda pauline was said to be a baroness. She was definitely not she was the daughter of a farrier over the course of his life aldridge had actually fathered several other children as well in eighteen fifty. Five another actor. William stop third sued him over an affair with his wife emma after she delivered a biracial baby. Aldridge was found guilty of criminal conversation and sentenced to pay a fine. Ira married amanda pauline in eighteen sixty five and after that they had two more children amanda christina elizabeth born in march of eighteen. Sixty six and rachel margaret fredrika. Who was born four and a half months. After aldridge's death. I reside in poland on august seventh eighteen sixty seven and he was buried there although he made specific plans to return to the united states at various points. It seems that he never did when the new memorial theatre reopened at stratford-upon-avon in one thousand nine thirty two aldridge's name was included. Among other great shakespearean actors commemorated with plaques among the seats he is the only black actor of the thirty three included as we noted aldridge became quite successful in his career and he developed a pretty healthy income. He started giving a significant portion of that income to abolitionist causes and he also played a part in an abolitionist work of art outside of the theater which we will talk about after another brief sponsor break. Geico knows there many reasons why you ride from the exciting adventure of the daily commute to the peace of mind that geico always has your back with twenty four seven access to claim service and and legendary customer service but pamela had one reason in particular.

Save people money. Well i hate to break it to you but geico got it from shakespeare geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percents or more. Ira frederick aldridge was the subject of several works of art during his lifetime. One was head of a negro in the character of fellow which was painted by james northcote in the first year that ira himself appeared as othello onstage. So although the artist didn't specifically say this is ira aldridge. The widespread conclusion is that. That's who the pink. The painting is of but another came back into the public eye only very recently after having been in private collections for one hundred eighty years. It's by john phillips simpson and it's called the captive slave and it was acquired by the art institute of chicago in two thousand nine before this people knew that the that it existed and there was a really poor quality reproduction of it but the original painting had been out of the public eye. The captive slave was painted sometime in the late. Eighteen twenty's and it's a painting of a young black man sitting on a bench wearing manacles. He's wearing an orange jumpsuit. And for modern were it will probably immediately bring to mind the idea of a prison jumpsuit. He's looking upward. And his face carries this impression of nearly tearful sorrow and loss. Is the painting that i went on exhibition at the royal academy of the arts in eighteen twenty seven and it's injury in the exhibition catalogue included lions from charity. Which is anti-slavery poem. By william cowper. It's clearly meant as an anti-slavery work in the man. Portraying the slave in the painting is ira frederick aldridge. Lot of people don't know that there was an incredibly famous black actor doing shakespeare in victorian europe and especially england even though they didn't love him in london but everywhere else.

"Attempts from a rival theater company. It strikes me as so strange that there were theater rivalries including sabotage outside of new york opportunities for black entertainers which had not been all that. Numerous in the first place we're really dwindling. In the early mid eighteen hundreds minstrel shows performed by white actors and black face often in a way that offensively lampooned and caricatured black characters. We're becoming more and more popular. The stock character. Jim crow part of minstrel shows by eighteen. Twenty eight and the name. Jim crow would be used as a racist. Slur within a decade minstrel shows performed by white people in black face started crowding out opportunities for black performers sometimes while simultaneously copying those performers original work with all of this going on not long after his decision to become a professional actor aldridge also decided that he would do so in europe and not in the united states according to a pamphlet about aldridge which was published during his lifetime. One of his former classmates quote was in the habit of taking mr henry. Wallich's dresses to the chatham theatre henry wallich and his brother. James were both british. Actors had become a staple in new york's white theaters at this point. The theater scene in new york was thriving so much that a lot of british actors or being drawn to new york to perform their much to the chagrin of the theaters especially in london. This was the case with the the wallich brothers so ira aldridge renewed his acquaintance with this former classmate who had been delivering the costumes to the theater for the wallich's and through his friend he got an introduction to the two men both of them took an interest in aldridge in his career and even though his acting opportunities had been limited at this point he seemed to have already shown some clear talent. Henry wrote him a letter of introduction. And james possibly by coincidence booked passage on the same ship to liverpool that aldridge had secured employment on he was going to work as a steward basically to get across the atlantic ocean to england once they were on board. Though james requested aldridge justice personal assistant and aldridge got to liverpool in eighteen. Twenty four and in a year he would make his debut with top billing.

I wanna find my neighbors and all of the people that make my little corner of the world home. What hidden gems await you in your neighborhood shopsmall this weekend and all summer long. Let's go shopsmall with amex in the fall of eighteen. Twenty five. ira frederick aldridge. Made his london debut starring in west indian and african melodramas at the royal coburg theatre under the pseudonym mr keane he would have a variety of pseudonyms especially early in his career and at this point he was only eighteen. And we don't really know. The story of how aldridge went from a new arrival in london to securing top billing in his debut performance albeit at one of london's minor theaters It's likely that henry wallich's letter of introduction really helped as well as the novelty of having a black actor on the stage aldridge was. We should be clear. Certainly not the first actor of color in britain but there weren't that many before this point audiences seemed to love him in these first performances at the coburg newspaper reports Talk about really long and loud applause for his performances and audiences who just seemed enraptured with him some of the reviews were positive but a lot of them though frankly just hostile may painted a caricatured picture of his appearance exaggerating his facial features and his skin color and in one case claimed at the shape of his lips made it impossible for him to pronounce proper english. If you read the biographies collect a lot of these and if you read them they are terrible. While performing at the coburg aldridge met the woman that he would soon. Mary margaret gill. Who was from a laboring family similarly to the story. That aldridge was really descended from african royalty. Margaret was often presented as the daughter of a member of parliament. In while the pho- history of aldridge's parentage made him more appealing to the audience. The idea that she was the daughter of an mp gave margaret a little more social protection than she had as the daughter of a poor family soon after his engagement at the coburg ended aldridge and his new wife moved onto brighton and then they went on a tour through the uk's provinces pizza gone both comedic and dramatic roles and since he could sing he performed and variety shows. Most of his roles were those of black characters with that point had typically been played by white actors and black face. Some of his most common roles were othello. Which is probably the most obvious at the time. And another was orinoco in the revolt of suriname almost immediately he was being billed as the african russkies. Roscoe was a roman actor who became sort of the go-to nickname for particularly successful actors. Later on. I wonder why that fell out of favor. We could be using that today. i know and i. It was one of those things where i was. So many people were referring to it in the and articles about him and things like that. I had to go look it up because i was like but conceptually. This is a nickname for a famous actor but it is not really in common use. Now let's bring it back Even though his performances were well received any found work really often he and his wife really struggled financially. I his engagements Only gave him a lot of the times. A few days of work at a time and without a steady employment or a patron at times he would go for weeks without pay.

Welcome to stuff. You missed in history class a production of iheartradio and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy the wilson. I'm holly fry today. We have someone. I i learned about from the people of color in european art history. Tumbler also known as medieval. Poc it is. Ira frederick aldridge. She was a shakespearean actor in the eighteen hundreds. And you might even call him the first famous american shakespearean actor although there was another american named edwin forrest who was popular in both the united states and britain. At about same time there is actual debate over which of them should be called the first famous american shakespearean actor which amuses me but to return to the story Aldridge has largely been excluded from biographies of shakespearean actors and from histories of the theaters. Where he performed. And the like. In some cases there were even like histories of the theater written in in france for example that were then translated into english and in the english language versions from the late nineteenth early twentieth century just kind of excluded from the translated version. He a little hard to find information about. They're not that many books about him. But he was one of the first americans to achieve fame as a shakespearean actor we said and he was definitely the first black man who really do so he had. There were a couple of other black actors performing shakespeare at about the same time but none of them got nearly the international renown that he did. He became a really famous figure. On the victorian shakespeare stage and there is some easiness about aldridge's parents in his early life and part of it is thanks to the holes in records and documentation that come up pretty often on our show especially the farther back. You go but complicating. That was a heavily romanticized story of his ancestry that floated around as part of the publicity for his acting. Career and that kind of nebulous version was also picked up by biographers. The most basic version of this story was just that aldridge was from senegal and descended from royalty there. An african prince newly arrived from senegal would have been at the time somewhat more acceptable to white theater audiences than an american black man descended from slaves. So it's possible that however this story came to be it was motivated at least in part by appeasing the white theater crowds sensibilities logically probably also just as a publicity move but at least one biographer went so far as to detail a whole saga of iris. Father whose name daniel being brought to the united states by a missionary to be educated and to flee a conspiracy playing out among the senegalese nobility in this story daniel aldridge married while he was in the states and then returned to senegal with his wife after the danger had passed. And that would be just before iras birth as this is. This is a very very dramatic story. It's probably also just a story although it's really unclear at point exactly when aldridge's ancestors were brought to north america or how they ultimately came to be free people. Living in new york. Daniel alderdice birthplace was either new york or baltimore. His death certificates as new york and his obituary says baltimore. Yeah we've had a few of those weird like different documents say completely different things At that point all you can kind of do is shrunk. Ira himself was born in new york on july twenty fourth of eighteen o seven. He had several siblings but only one older brother. Joshua survived their mother laurent. A- was either from north carolina or delaware depending on which record you're looking at and she died in eighteen seventeen when ira was ten and joshua was approximately twelve. Other new york had passed a gradual emancipation. Act in seventeen ninety nine. Many enslaved people born before that year weren't freed until eighteen. Twenty seven and census records reported that about seventy five. Enslaved people were still living in new york in eighteen thirty so while ira and his family were free there. Were also enslaved people as well as people who were working out in dentures that were required by the gradual emancipation. Act living in new york city at the same time and in addition to the stratification in terms of freedom for the black community public facilities were segregated including the schools in the theaters. That ira would attend as a young man. Iras early education was at the african free school which had been founded by the new york menu mission society. The african free school was open to children up until the age of fifteen. But it seems as though ira state until he was fifteen or possibly sixteen perhaps because he enrolled when he was already a young teenager in about eighteen. Twenty william alexander brown who had previously worked as a steward on a ship that sailed from new york to liverpool opened theater. This was the african grove sometimes. Just called brown's theater or the african theater and this theater which was in manhattan's west side. He was building on the success of an ice cream garden. He had previously opened and the ice cream gardens served tea and ice cream and also functioned as a performance space. It was one of the very very few such venues in the city that was open to black patrons and it was one of a string of brown's social and performing arts venues that he opened over the years at first. The coverage of the african grove theatre from the white press was largely negative and dismissive but eventually it grew so popular that it had to designate a section for white audience members. It was certainly not the only new york theater that was run by and for its black residents but it was the most ambitious and successful. In addition to other works it's stage adaptations of shakespeare and one of its star. Performers was a man named james hewlett. Someone aldridge most likely both watched from the audience and eventually acted alongside in eighteen. Twenty one or eighteen. Twenty two ira. In joshua brown both landed roles at the theater. Ira would have been fifteen or sixteen at that point. But their father was not a fan of this idea. He pulled them out of the show possibly because he wanted them to become ministers instead of actors. But ira would not be deterred at the age of about seventeen. He started trying to build a career as a professional actor. Full-time and this was a difficult. Time to be a black actor both in new york specifically in the united states in general the african grove burned down under mysterious circumstances about three years after its opening and that had followed a general theater closure during a yellow fever outbreak and even before that the african grove had been the target of complaints from white neighbors about noise and crowds as well as sabotage.

"To Celtics beat and obviously the off season is underway. There's much to cover. We got it going with Jared Weiss and all the the movement, but we decided to stay for this next show within the athletic family. And not only that, a special treat. Obviously, here is, we are joined by David Aldridge. You certainly may know him in his career. Work long of, you know, not just NBA TV, but obviously Turner for a long, long time. Turner Sports, ESPN Philadelphia, Inquirer. Also, a post. Now of the athletic as mentioned, and the editor-in-chief there. I'm good. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it. See I feel like, the only thing I left out of the resume hall-of-famer, kind of a big deal. I'm just all. That's what my Gorman. Who was going into the Hall? In this next class would tell us, you know? Yeah. In New Jersey, Meserve has been great for a long time. Great. Well, we appreciate you being here with us. Like I said, Adam Kaufman Valenti. You know, us, we have world had at this point David where I want to start this. A lot of stuff that we want to get too over the years that we've got you here, a kind of wide-ranging and and I think a good place to begin things is so often here for the show. And we we go over the entire NBA but obviously, we're a Celtics Focus. Yeah, typically way we are really honed into local beat guys, TV. People former players, you know, purple come on, from time to time. We'll just get really deep into what's going on locally concerning the South, but where I'm interested in starting with you is the national perspective because obviously, as an outsider to Boston, but a long time NBA Insider, what's your perspective of what has happened over the course of life. This past year, obviously the big shuffling at the end of the season with Danny Ainge as we know it right now, retiring, Brad Stevens being elevated. And this team needing a new head coach. Well, I can't I can't say I was shocked that Danny's leaving. I mean there's been kind of Rumblings for a while that for one reason or another Danny was maybe not going to be there much longer wage but I think I think most of us were shocked that Brad was going to go upstairs and replace them. You know, and not continue to coach the team. It would have been one thing that they just said, okay we're going to get Brad everything. I mean that does happen bank to get it in Detroit a few years ago. So it does happen in this league still, but the fact that he's going up there just to kind of run the team and not coach anymore. That was a shock. I mean that was a real surprise. I don't think many people had that on there bingo cards to be sure with that. I mean, do you think it? And there's no way to know, you know, Evan brought it up qualities that Brad has as to why this could maybe even will or should not however you want to label it work. But let's just let's not forget, I mean, we have to at least acknowledge. This could be a disaster. How do you think this plays out for a guy that has obviously never done it? And the right, I would log He never died or he did. But yeah, no, you're right. I mean, look, there's no guarantee that this is going to work, right? I mean, it's a completely different skill-set and I mean, completely different skill-set, we need that Brad. Stevens is a really good coach. He's a great coach. He was a great coach in college..

"I mean obviously spacing without horford has drastically improved for philadelphia. And i think that that trickles down to your quality of shot selection. There was an awful lot is bad bailout shots from bead in the mid range the crazy fall away as the leaners the you know just desperation shots hero shots in some situations. I do think he likes to be viewed as kind of is do it all big man and sometimes he was just taking it too far anecdotally from the eye test. I feel like he's tightened a lot of that up and it's probably because he doesn't find himself such dire situations this year because they do have better spacing and because i think he's in better shape and kinda can kind of get to things more quickly. Would you agree with that. Yeah one hundred percent. I mean having you know horford and no josh richardson instead. A instead now having seth curry danny green Tobias harris having the shooting season of his career. There's just a lot more space to to operate. And i just want also quickly highlight My former editor mike parada At espy nation He wrote a a really really awesome piece about embeds balance on his on his subject newsletter And how embiid's ability to kind of face up more. This season has improved his ability to knock down those mid range shots and those long twos. So i think that that's a factor as well and i think embiid said Recently i think it was after the mavericks game. He kinda compared himself a little bit to kevin. Durant said that's the type of offensive player. He wants to be. He doesn't wanna be just back to the basket. Sh like old school shack tape. And all this centers that for all the singers wannabe beyond say all the big men wanna be katie. It's just hilarious to me. I mean you know. He's doing the same thing working on the perimeter game constantly. It's so strange. Because you know katie's given up seventy five pounds of some of these guys that feels like and yet they watch him handle the ball. That looks like fun. I want to do that too. And beat is a good shooter though for eighty percent free throw shooter and he gives to the line an awful lot. That's been one of the key. Strengths for this philadelphia team. Is him getting to that foul line. You know just eleven times a game and really being able to deliver their. I think they might be number. One in free throws or free throw attempts this season as a team. That's a huge advantage when you're going into the playoffs especially if you're looking at under undersized frontline among the opponents right so that that's huge in their favor but what you are seeing. Is that look this guy. Shot selection was so bad in past years and or his conditioning was so bad in past years. So he's settling for bad shots and he's way below where he should be if you get a wide open mid range shot. I don't expect you to hit that at an eighty percent clip. Like you do a a free throw but it shouldn't be completely crazy and surprising that you can hit out a really good right. I mean this goes back to lamarcus. Aldridge thing he was a great free throw shooter himself and he was awesome from those elbows. If you left him open and and that's kind of 'em beats got that soft touch. He's got good form. That's where it should be. I also think this conditioning though it comes through in a lot of different ways for embiid i mean his three point. Shooting number is up For sure his overall shooting efficiency is up his late game..

"Some really intrigued to see. I hope we see them in the playoffs at some point. But i'm not too worried about the nets. As i said when we did the the expecter episode like i didn't even consider i said like if aldridge were to get hurt for the rest of the season i wouldn't be couldn't like that nervous about brooklyn so don't think my stance has changed. No you were wrong then. And now you're gonna pay for it. Michael that's the only way i can see it No i hear your point. I mean it's not absolutely devastating but they had assembled all deep record there with different options. And you know depending on how things go across the course of a series. I could see that frontline getting worn down or getting into foul when we saw with embiid really having his way with brooklyn At least what was available last night before we dig into 'em and how sensational he's been this year. I just think we need to tell the sixers fans. They made a big mistake on wednesday night. michael they should not have boo'd kevin durant in the manner that they did if the nets and sixers meet in the playoffs. And there's a game in philadelphia. I promise you kevin durant will score at least forty points in that game right it down. Now he was looking around all miffed on the bench. I'm sure you saw his reaction. Why are they doing me on. Not even playing big mistake is not going to forget that and you should've taken that one back sixers fans. I know you're happy to be back in the building. Everyone's glad to have fans back in the building when it safe and appropriate big mistake. Michael big mistake i. I'm calling it right now. You said forty in the game. He's gonna have forty at halftime. I'm sorry that was a big mistake. I totally agree with all right man all serious this year with them beat. I know you wrote about him this week. I got the sense that maybe you were doing some of your dork stat diving and coming across some wacky stats and you were like. I've got turn this into a column. Am i right. Well you told us before you know you like to kind of just dig in deep into the database and then when you find a number you want to explore it and ask about it and so forth. I think this was your explanation for your clink cappella defensive player of the year nomination. Call him a couple of months ago..

"Said breaking news in the nba so oddly out of nowhere after trade after he's released and signed as a free agent or trade average aldridge played five games. The brooklyn nets is announced retiring from the nba effective today and he's wrote a letter out on twitter. He says my last game. I played while dealing with an irregular heartbeat later on that night. My rhythm got even worse. Which really worried me. Even more the next morning. I told the team what was going on and they were great. Getting me to the hospital in getting me checked out though. I'm better now. What i felt that night with my heart. That night was still one of the scariest things i've ever experienced that being said i've made the decision to retire from the nba. Fifteen years put basketball. I and now it's ten health and family. I amen good for him. That old make you retire real. Let me take somebody comes to the heart and the rest of it near regular and feeling uncomfortable Good not good for him that he went through that but that he was able to get that reminder before something more severe happens that makes sense fifteen years. He's had a hell of a career you know. When the when spurs let him go and requests it nowadays person there. Yup yeah obviously that it was and of course. Thank portland ray talked about. How what kinda impact he'd make but the this is very good smart decision. Five games then playing the center position for them and averaging thirteen points a game like it was good pig. What made them and now. They've got they're making a difference. But you know what you're after fifteen years and he made thirty five years old makes great statement. I've given myself basketball for fifteen years priority. It's time to make health priorities. Had a hell of a run That's nothing to toy with and there should be not one soul the says. My gosh that can health condition is far more important than the ring that he may or possibly could want. It does not matter.

"It up. The Brooklyn Nets are now a quote super team. I mean, they kind of already were after they traded for James Harden earlier in the season, the pair with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, but now that they've acquired Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge via buyouts, the cynical MBA social media sphere is crying. Foul. This nonsense has to stop all your lies. Most have been hating hard on both Alders and Blakes is gained for claiming them washed up has been, But now that they can ride the coattails of the Nets Big three and potentially win a championship. It's unfair. Come on, then. That's your doing what any organization would do if given the opportunity, acquire as much talent as possible, and if they do win a championship?

"I think that's a great counter. And i would also say like milwaukee's been in the mix right if they oughta guy like austin rivers and you know plug a hole in their rotation and he might get some really important playoff minutes. I mean that could wind up huge. Yeah he's good I've always been a fan of austin rivers especially when he was in houston. I thought that you know. He's statistically one of the better so players in the league he can hit a pull up three To like every once in a while he can get hot and they just needed extra depth at that spot. Right dante vincenzo. Were to go down or something like that. Like it would get really really quick for them and he's also used to playing with. Pj tucker and understanding you know how you playoff. Lead ball handlers. Who are going to do most of the creating and everything else so that was a pretty nice move for them. That would be one of my counters. I would also go to the idea that if your team is set. If you have really good front office you may not even need to play in the buyout market. Like let me ask you. Do you think the jazz were like. Oh no we didn't get andre drummond in the buyout like they're they're looking at their rotation saying we're good you know we can pick up a matt. Thomas randomly from toronto at the trade deadline. Just get one more shooter. Just an embarrassment of riches but like they didn't really need to plug those holes because things were set up pretty well. And so i would say maybe casey take a deep breath. I would say that for sure and don't leave the sport just because of the buyouts. It's not quite that series. They don't impact the championship. Like historically they re honestly. Can you name anyone who was a bio player who seriously was a factor in a playoff run. I mean i. Yeah like last year's. I think most important one probably was Markeith morris for the lakers russia. And so how important was he ninth. Most important player for the lakers right So it's not that they're having zero impact. But it's probably negligible but i do think that he casey's onto a slippery slope which is ask these kinds of contracts continue to escalate. You could see a situation in the not too distant future where washington is looking at buyout negotiations with row with russell westbrook or houston's looking out by out negotiations with john wall and when those happen and those guys joined some you know big market team prestige organization. There's gonna be a lot of outrage but it is important to remember. The current versions of the guys who are being bought out are not the star versions. And that was your original point. Which i thought was an excellent one michael so i'm going to put it to you this way. I need a ranking just a real quick one sentence take how much will marcus aldridge helped the nets when the title on a one to ten scale with ten being starting in game seven. Dominating anthony davis and and one being. He's just wearing dress clothes on the bench because they don't even need him because they got nick. Claxton a future hall of famer. Where does he land on the one to ten scale.

What's up bengal over the washington post. I am joined on the other line by michael. The pod pena of sports illustrated michael. I think the weekend after the trade deadline was really dominated by a lot of buyout. Talk and frankly a lot of buyout. Backlash we got an email from casey michael. I'm going to spare you the entire details. But casey us solid. I don't know six thousand words taking the nba's competitive balance landscape to task by virtue of these buyout situations where a team like the brooklyn nets can go out and grab lamarcus aldridge. A team like the los angeles lakers can just pick up an drummond and drop them right into their pocket It looks like the milwaukee bucks might be able to add austin rivers. Which i think is actually kind of a sneaky edition that maybe should really be infuriating. People accept milwaukee's not that big market brooklyn l. a. team that tends to get so much of the backlash in these conversations. But casey's general premise was that small market teams should be livid and their fans should be livid because players tend to go to the larger markets in these situations the a lot of times a smaller market teams. Whether it's a cleveland and drummond's case a san antonio in aldridge's case footing the bill for these bio players in other words there almost paying them to go away and and gravy train onto a title contender. And i'm curious when you look at the state of this developing buyout market here which i think has accelerated over the last five years or so. Do you view this as a critical problem for the league. If you're adam silver would you be tried to rain this in because we are seeing some really big names also including blake griffin sort of exploit. This loophole to give themselves a second chapter for their careers. Yeah i mean. I want to start just by saying that Howard beck wrote a really good piece on sl dot com kind of outlining why this is viewed as a humongous issue particularly from the perspective of those small market teams where there is a disparity in the league. Everybody knows it. If you're glamour market you have an inborn advantage to building a consistent championship contender. That's just kind of how the league is when i look at the buyout situation. I mean it's obviously not perfect. It's not ideal. It's not even fair. But the way i kinda see it. I think there are some tweaks you can make to improve it. But i i kind of like there's two things one blake griffin an lamarcus aldridge. Are they both signed with the with the nets. I'd think that either one will be on the floor in crunch time of a playoff game for that team. It's not to say that they can't help in the regular season and that they will won't be in the rotation potentially in the playoffs. But like i think their names are a lot more impactful than their actual production like. They are not even close to as good in all. Seriousness is bruce brown or joe harris or jeff..
