Most of them contribute to both sides. They have political action committees. That's fine it's legal to appropriate. I support that. I'm talking about taking a position on a highly incendiary and punish in a community or state. Because you don't like a particular law that. I just think it's stupid

Sp two oh two would it really is all about is the ways to keep the traditional high numbers of african american voters doubt howard. Bryant is a senior writer for espn and the author of the henry.

For MLB, moving the All-Star Game is a financial whiff
"On in the world of baseball, some of it somehow connected to politics. The MLB chose to move their All Star game from Atlanta, Denver the problems with that there's a lot of them first. Denver has a lot of different rules that George I just put in place that make it confusing as to why you'd move the game from one place to another place when photo ideas required when you can't give out water to people. In line and you're unless you're further than 100 ft away and wearing paraphernalia that's connected to a political party. There's a lot of things, but more importantly than that is the amount of revenue. It's gonna be lost by four Atlanta at a time when they need it, and nothing stings worse than hearing the guy in the other place, celebrate the fact that they're not gonna have an All Star game. This is what it sounds like. When you're the mayor Denver you step up. You're like, Hey, we're getting all star game. This is awesome National stage this July, right here in our city and to once again showcase Denver to the rest of the country. It's been a long year. And I can think of nothing more energizing to help advance our recovery and to boost our economy, then by bringing the 2021 Midsummer Classic back to the mouth, High city It's just It's just crazy that that's gonna be referenced time to get the amount of money it's going to come in, is also very significant here hosting this event. Is about so much more than the home run Derby or the game itself. There will be plenty of week of events activities for the whole family throughout downtown Denver. And volunteer opportunities for nearly 2000 people. And those benefits are far beyond will last far beyond July. By some estimates, this event will mean more than $100 million impact to our local economy.
Backlash Grows Against Georgia Voting Law
"Democrats have made voting rights. Or at least what they referred to as voting rights a centerpiece of their agenda over the last few months. I've i've phrase it that way not to be. Tendentious highlight the fact that the rhetoric around this issue from democrats would suggest that. What's at issue is whether a vast number of people will be disenfranchised when in reality if you look at hr one. They're big voting rights bill in the congress or if you look at something like the reason voting rights bill that passed in georgia which progressives are outraged by the those are not quite the stakes. What's perhaps most notable about all this. You might expect a political party to overstate their case here. But now you have the media at corporations lining up in lockstep with that narrative to the point where major league baseball all-star game out of atlanta because of the new georgia law. As if it was the reimposition of jim crow what's your takeaway from the the backlash that the left is sort of engineered here over the past week or so. Well we know. It's not an empirical worry on the part of corporate america and the left over disenfranchisement of voters because in the two thousand eight and two thousand twelve election to take one example in states that were more restrictive. I e colorado delaware joe biden's home state which is seen basically runs black registered. Voters voted in the higher percentage of than did white voters. So why did they do that if it was restrictive and they did it because they wanted to vote for barack obama. And that's number one so we know that that's not true that the georgia law anything comparable to it restricts black voters
Biden says decision to move Masters from Georgia is up to tournament operators
"To Georgia's new voter laws, which Republican lawmakers claim are to calm fears that the election was stolen. Democrats are saying Nice try you make up alive and an election was stolen and then Passed laws they say to restrict Democrats from voting yesterday, Buying was asked if the Masters golf Tournament should move out of Atlanta. Let's listen. I think it's a very tough decision for a corporation to make were group to make, but I respect them when they make that judgment, and I support whatever judgment they make. No masters is different from other sports like the All Star game. You know the masters they live. You know, the golf tournament lives in Georgia. But Alice, you tweet about something about you were surprised that that why what would you Advised the Masters to do I would advise the Masters to continue putting on the greatest golf tournament that there is in the country in the world, and it is a important legacy for Augusta, Georgia and for the state of Georgia and for golf, and it has Absolutely nothing to do with this, And I think it's really important for corporations to realize if they're going to get into politics. They need to do so with the facts and not misinformation, and it's it's critical that people realize in this case we have MLB pulling out of Atlanta for the All Star Game, Delta supported it as well as Coca Cola. But people need to realize just because Delta is ready when the mob is and Coke is now woke. It does not mean they're right. Delta CEO initially supported this election efforts for the election integrity and codifying certain voting procedures as well as the absentee ballot and he was pressured by failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. To pull the All Star game out and to not support this measure, And now he's saying that this election meant legislation does not support Delta's values. I think that is as hypocritical and it means that this decision was not based on fact, Okay, Springville in yet.

"Situation or a wizard situation where they have to be parked for a long time because then it raises questions about how exactly the schedule is going to work this. This was something and it reinforced. Even though the nba did a great job apparently taken care of everything and reinforced that. There was some risk. There was a nightmare. Scenario that existed with all star it appears they've avoided that though you know what look rich out with zach. I was looking at a spotted life which on the sideline right. And i'm thinking. Maybe because he had follow joyce two guys that want to know my la put. That wasn't the case. He was more concerned about joel v. Sadness and what is the fact that is going to have on a team where you look at the seventy sixers team that will play. They will playing expire a winning basketball before the all-star great and one thing you don't wanna mess up his chemistry using when you come in at the dollar rate you want everyone healthy. This is what you wanna hit your stride. This is when you start really planned agenda free basketball because it's nothing else to make. I mean obviously you go for your individual wards but everything else is all about coming together and for donald trying to win the championship. And they'll just missing to gains from interest standpoint guys coming back not really having their legs and not being able to go out there and practice or whatever the case may be you can have that risk of injury. So is everything to me. Hopefully everyone be filed. We see these two studs back on the court again. So but i just i feel doc rivers right now. I see his face been on for twenty years was gonna say you and to the nba in some ways. Got a little bit lucky here. If the covid test from the barber had come back. I don't know six hours later than it did or eight hours. I don't know what the exact swing is on. Those guys would have been in the locker room with their all star teammates. And so then you would've looked at much more a much more. Sprawling context tracing situation that they didn't have to go through and and that is partly because they've had rigorous testing all the way throughout and partly luck which they got lucky in that regard and we do send our best to the barbara who is infected and hope that joel and and Ben come out of this safely all right. let's move onto lebron. he started.

Now that the trophy is named for bryant. Can it was awesome to see the joy that he played with. And all that you you can go sixteen of sixteen at la fitness against me and it still means something so i think it's definitely something it's just not everything. He can't get everything until the playoffs. But it was awesome. A great night for jaanus. It was really moving to hear him. Talk about what that trophy meant to him. He said i have a now going to have a trophy with kobe. Bryant's next me in my house and we know kobe really was very fond of janas. He tweeted at him.

But yeah i mean this is. This is the reality of the world until things change and this is going to keep happening in the second half of the season until and unless there's sort of mass vaccination and the second half of the season doesn't have that built in cushion at the back of the schedule at least as things exist now so the nba just has to cross.

But i don't think it was one of those things where highlighted that. The whole event was irresponsible. The nba treated this like a super super intense regular season game. War testing war quarantine. The exposure came before they got to atlanta. It appears that did not come in contact with anyone in atlanta. This is the kind of stuff that's been happening in the regular season period. Who knows what would have been who knows what's been going on right now with the players around the country so i do think i get why the optics are bad but i think it was worth the squeeze and that's before you get into what they did rage. Vcu's in terms of exposure and all and look. We just showed some video right there of janas with his son liam which was really cool. Those moments are so great. We remember the video of steph.

Opt out and do it again. He's gonna wind up like if he has a good season year to top five mp in cy young year to wettest easier said than done. One is only cy young in a very short season but a good pitcher. His seasons go from solid middle to high rotation piece to ace. That's his range and if he is he happens.

Watch sign the same deal again. maybe more. Maybe we'll make one hundred eighty million dollars in four years not too shabby and he's joining the best team in baseball. Giving them the best pitching staff in baseball. And they're the defending world series champs. He's from l. a. Not too shabby meantime. Lebron james doesn't like the idea of an all star game and let me tell you that the the max kellerman show is presented by progressive insurance warriors mavs on abc. Espn radio tomorrow night. And i think luanch we'll be in his own. Get in the zone is brought to you by autozone getting zone autozone and now. I can tell you that i've done that. That lebron james doesn't like the idea of an all star game one that you hear it straight from the horse's mouth. I have zero energy and zero excitement about an all star. Game this year I don't even understand why we're having all star game short off season for for myself. My teammates with seventy one days and they come into the season You were told that we were not having all star game so we had a nice little break five days from a fifty two. You know an opportunity for me to kind of recalibrate for the second half of the season my teammates as well some guys in the league and then they throw all star game owners like this and and just brakes that all the way up so pretty much kind of a slap in the face. Look when deanne fox yesterday said it was stupid. The league i thought young player. Come on the and you're young. You're not playing deep into the playoffs. What's the problem. But then when lebron says that ago not only do i go. brand carries a lot of weight. And he's been a very good partner with league as the players in the league of have really been good partners throughout this pandemic. But then i also thought like wait a minute. Lebron has a different set of interest in the an fox. A players union represents a lot of people in different points of their life before they families and have made money older players. You know mortgages who haven't gotten superwealthy superwealthy players who have brands to consider like there's all kinds of stuff going on and here's an issue because we're only talking very good players here because it's an all star game that both a young guy is not gonna play into the postseason. An old guy just want a championship predicted to win. Another one are united saying or both. Feel the same way like this is a bad idea. So that's one thing what's going on in the players union. Because i've heard chris paul pushed for this and if chris paul pushed for how is lebron not aware i understand the unions not a model if they don't all think exactly the same but there seems to be a real schism here in the union. Now now lebron says they were told there wasn't going to be an all star game. The league came out and said that's not true. We never said there wasn't going to be an all star game. I don't think lebron's lion. He's not a liar. So that's some bad communication between the league and lebron james. But we haven't heard seen a hiccup like this from the nba a while throughout the pandemic. They were almost showing off. How how well they were getting along and how they were getting it. I think more reporting has to be done here. There's more than meets the eye right. Can we play this or are we gonna take calls here rogers play. Who's dumber than max. We have to change the name. Because no one's let's take big rob one to talk about lebron the all okay go ahead robin california. What's what's up. What's up max. I just to say. Hey first of all. I like you a lot. 'cause you speak your mind when nobody else does. I let what time you said that. The brunt wasn't the greatest player in the world but you took effect and that hurt me all right right now. I'm i'm i'm calling in because everybody else says that. Lebron james is kings to me. He's not the q. Isn't great enough. all right. this is big raw from inglewood. Obviously say who asked you. Hey katie is back maybe well okay well okay. Let me say one thing about k. d. k. Deal have chances here. It's not fair to say he's been better than lebron in the past in the regular season he had one or two that were better than lebron's but by the end of the playoffs you can't put an mvp on a seventy three win team and say oh. He won finals. Mvp better than lebron. That's not true. If this year takes a brooklyn team past lebron's lakers now we can talk back. Max okay. Lebron james lead his team and go joint two of the top ten players in the lead so it was a championship. Mvp who who those top ten players. Oh my god at when he went to the heat the miami hold on a second hold on a second. You're right you're right when he went to the heat. But but there's a difference between joining two other top ten players in weight and bausch and coming together to form voltron which seemed like a competitive like ridiculous advantage right there. That's one level and lebron was criticized for that. It's a whole other level for to join forces with the team. That just beat him. That just one. Seventy three games. There's no guesswork. We already know. The warriors were a juggernaut. When you add any mvp caliber player to bat warriors. Team that's even two point. Oh of what lebron did that's anti-competitive even in a different way than lebron. So i hear what you're saying but is there an equivalency between what k. d. with the warriors lebron with the heat no lebron. They have paved the way but k. D. took it to a whole new level. Now that's why i think. He deserves enormous. Praise for going brooklyn. Because okay this didn't prove it to people watch this and he formed his own team of court by by the way of course. He has great teammates. No one wins a championship with the team. But it's totally different saying. Hey let's grab james harden kyrie irving me. See if we can do this. That's a whole different thing. And he'll deserve all the credit in the world for doing it versus steph and clay and trae. Igwe dollar have already won a championship. They followed that up with seventy three wins. They beat my team but then couldn't get over the hump of lebron james. So i'm going to join them and create a team that no one can ever be no no. That's that's a whole other level by the way we've got you covered all sunday night right here on. Espn radio coverage of the chiefs. Box starts with a special edition of barton. Seven to nine. Am eastern and continues all day long and after the game. Join jason fitz..

"Cool. You agree with these guys that. That's what i bounced back. Tim by the way that you do. You still have bounce catching you get these guys to buy into coming back. You promised them that they will have five days off. No all star game and you can utilize that time to obviously the catch up with midst gains but these guys came into the season particularly lakers in the eight. This'll be the chance where they can. Kinda relaxing played catch up to everyone else who had some time off. And now you saying there's a all star game in i'm here in atlanta and it's open your free to do whatever just about around here so i understand their concern and you put when you bring the entire league here or at least all stars at risk i mean you're talking about all the all stars all the best players from the best teams coming into atlanta. Also one more thing. I want to add to that you hearing other guys i hear people say oh you know deer and foxes saying what he had all these guys kill the say. It's like they don't feel safe clearly. That's what it is somewhere. There's some communication between players in the union. Needs to be fixed. Absolutely what comes to mind with me. And that's the word. Trust the word trust because the press trust nba and the players association word when they gave it to them at the start of before the start of the season when they told him that it wasn't going to be all star game all star weekend. And so would that being said when you look into it and look at how the players sacrifice so much a short a short turnaround of guys not being able to have a training account and said you know what would make a the schedule. Early and make christmas day will make the christmas day gain happy because we know how important to the nba. We know how important his the fans into everybody. The christmas day the players are sacrificing a lot being stuck in their hotel rooms testing daily to make sure that these games happen and on the flip side of that gives us still getting postponed so everyone is still figuring things out for dealing with this pandemic and yet you have all staw you just throw throw throw in the all star game all star weekend just on a spider spur of the moment without really have no real communication. It breaks the trust. This is why you get things right..

"Adrian wojnarowski. The nba and the players association are expected. By next week to have finalized an agreement forgot just picking all star teams which the league was always expected to do right. You need those for contracts and everything else but hold an actual all star game on march seventh in atlanta per the memo the single night event will encompass the game as well as the skills competitions and lebron was asked about this last night and lebron was not pleased last night take a hidden. I have zero energy and zero excitement about an all star game this year. I don't even understand why we're having all star game But it's the agreement at the players. Association lee came about short off season for for myself and my teammates. Seventy one days and they come into the season. We're told that we were not having all star game so we had a nice little break. Five days from fifty to tamp an opportunity for me to kind of recalibrate for the second half of the season my teammates as well some somebody guys in a league and then they throw all star game on his like this and his brakes that all the way up so pretty much the kind of a slap in the face and you know we're also still dealing with what a pandemic we're still dealing with everything that's been going on and we're going to bring a holiyay into one that's open now so you know. Obviously the pandemic has absolutely nothing to do with it at this point when it comes to that weekend so Obviously guys can see. I'm very happy about it. But it's out of my hands and you know i'll be there from selected but i'll be there physically but not mentally a lot. They're a slap in the face. Lebron james says no vince. You're an eight time all star and you also weren't all-star over the time i just want to give context here. The league evolve where they used to. Just throw you into the all star game through you back at your teams then. The players union negotiated having a few extra days on each and so the guys who were all stars could at least also get a break. That's not going to exist this time. Either it's really just four or five day stretch to be off from your regular schedule and they want these guys to fly to atlanta. How would you feel if you were lebron. I'll feel like he feels because think about this. You asking these guys to have a quick turnaround shortened offseason to get back in and obviously money is involved so if you come back you make your money okay.

"The two year ban from one of the world's most coveted competitions is a severe punishment for the club. That has really shaped English soccer over the past decade. Here's Robbie Earle on the to Robbie's podcast with his reaction to the ban. It is unusual. It's an absolute massive shocking. You ice cold. The people on an atomic bomb to help break this all down. We're joined by someone whose name you hear every week but is making an on air on Mike Debut Tony Chow. Our Guy in the control room. Thanks for being here Tony. Hello thanks for having me. It's so weird being on this side of the table. I'm just glad everyone can get. Who's man in the Control Room? Is it just on autopilot right now? Honestly just really proves little. I do back there because I hit the button. I can be here leave every every week. This is the lights are bright and now it's hot in here on Fan. You know this is. This is good for us. Roll our doing. Those lights are bright. It's hot how do you do this? So let's talk about why. This is such a significant moment for the sport and how this could possibly restructure European soccer. I kneel how exactly did man city allegedly violate UEFA rules to get into this? We have to rewind the clock to two thousand eight. That was when she commenced. You're a member of the Dhabi. Royal Family Bought Man City and he started spending a lot of cash on superstar players for the team. And the way that these rules work is in order to spend more money on the team. You have to offset that by income to the team and so the way that it seemed like it was above board was. There's this Company ETI I'd Airways which updates sponsorship deal with Man City to sixty seven and a half million pounds to help pay for all the players will. That's within the rules. If that was how would actually happen but there were. These hacked e mails leaked and published in the German News. Magazine Der Spiegel The which I love. They had the the subject line on the emails was it was something like cash flow which is not at all suspicious but basically the emails shed light on the fact that this was not really above board that the contribution by ti which by the way is owned by the same private Equity Company. That sheikh man sewer also has heavy involvement with The it was only a limited direct contribution of eight million pounds from the sponsorship Toward Man City and the rest of the deal sort of came out of man's tour's own pocket or at least from the Private Equity Fund. That's against the rules so you can't sort of route money From yourself through a sponsor and then into your club to be able to pay for players according to these financial fair play laws you have to. You know every dollar that you spend on players has to basically come from what they deemed to be a legitimate source. That's the root of all of this. I think I'm going to start subject lining all of my emails Mike Crimes and and see what happens. Tony. What's the function of these regulations? What is your wife trying to avoid by putting rules like these into place? I think the point of UEFA when it was first implemented was to prevent clubs from losing money a lot of clubs at that time was hemorrhaging a lot of money. These regulations were put in place to help stabilize the market opponents. Say That will now. These rules are kind of keeping the rich clubs rich and the poor clubs poor in preventing upward Mobility Club. So that you have these super teams and you're not allowing other clubs to like get richer and drew capping how much they're able to spend based on the revenue and is it kind of a case of trying to save teams from themselves almost by having this place and forcing them to spend within their means. It's like a natural cap on how much money the that everyone spends on players exactly. It's so if you have really really wealthy owners to try to prevent owners from pudding how much money they want to clubs so yeah in a way it is to make sure that club spend within their means and kind of protect them from selves. Well it's kind of like the old money versus new money thing like the teams that have always been rich are big names and they're gonNA attract star players no matter what and so then these up and coming teams are going to have a harder time if they can't offer the big exactly like keeping the upper crust upper cross. You have the means to spend more on players if you don't have good players right. Is there a comparison to this that we can draw in other sports like a luxury tax sort of thing it does seem sorta like the salary caps and stuff that we have in the US where it's also designed to kind of keep rich owners from just out spending everyone and even baseball where there's no salary cap per se has a luxury tax? And we saw it with the we talked about the Mookie. Betts trade of the red sox you know feeling compelled at least somewhat financially to to trade away a great player rather than spend more to keep him. So it's these are all mechanisms it seems like to in some ways. Depress player salaries In a Lotta ways or at least you know. Instead of letting the market spiral ever upward for for players in have teams get into bidding wars and end up spending a tremendous amount. There's like this Bilton mechanism to govern. How much and be like whoa there. You're spending too much on these guys you know. May maybe you WanNa rain it in a little bit. If you'll stricter than the luxury tax though because the amount of wealth we're talking from some of these owners if it was just like a luxury tax situation they'd be like I don't mind paying like what thirty million that they put on me and said he is really nothing. It's like the two year ban from Japanese League Beto which could cost them three hundred like maybe as a problem but even then if it was a luxury tax I don't think they would mind paying tax the differences like whereas a salary cap or luxury taxes done in the name of parody. This is Kinda done in the name of status quo where you've essentially a protecting the old guard from having some new team with you know and I think there's something pretty xenophobic about it. Having foreign money come in just by themselves into relevance instead the old established brands that have already making a ton of money will stay on top. So it's a little bit different there this notion that if you're you know trying to make a splash in the English league or any of these leagues you're not GonNa be able to do it quickly. And what we saw in the lat this century that Man City did it quickly so in some ways it probably could have been expected well and it's interesting. That man cities defenses olive. Our opponents are coming after us. Because we're good which yeah Kinda right. That's a valid argument. You can see why they think that the people who have been most outspoken about how Manson has built team are the teams that they are beating for Premier League titles. So you can understand where they're coming from man's that he says it will appeal the ruling to the International Court of Arbitration for Sport which I love as quickly as possible. Jeff how could that play out trip play on for a long time? They're going to obviously fight this with all the money at stake. And and wanting to keep their coach and keep their star players essentially. It's a problem because there's no no one's GONNA WANNA go or stay on a team that especially in this elite level is not going to be in the Champions League for two years so I think they're gonNA fight it with everything they have and there was one report that they said they have evidence that you venison. Psg have done the same thing and it could get really ugly. It's not like UEFA is some beacon of good practice so it it'll probably get complicated and I think ultimately I think they'll probably probably get knocked down to one year but who knows. I think it'll get tied up in the courts for a while and they have they have a lot. There's no restrictions on how much they can spend on lawyers. As far as I can tell so I think they certainly have more money than UEFA. It's going to get like messy messy messy and it's GonNa be it's GonNa go on for a long time. Jeff said I have a hard time seeing them. Get rid of being completely. Maybe one year. But they're gonNA fight this very very hard rumors are they have a docket not just inventors. Nps Jeep but like a docket of other teams have violated FCC and are not afraid to kind of share it with UEFA share. And I can understand why you wouldn't want that but like does that actually help. Nancy's case can you get away with saying other teams violated at two? Is that good enough defense I? I'm not sure they're trying to put on a situation. Where okay you can go ahead and ban this team and that team and all these very popular teams. I mean obviously wouldn't play out like that but I think technically if they established that you know these other teams need to come in review. They could give you a cold feet in theory. I guess about a really going down this road. The other interesting part of this to me. Is that if you wafer loses this if Manchester City is able to fight it successfully. There's no way they'll ever be able to enforce any financial restrictions right. I mean this cases sort of the bellwether for whether UEFA can run these hugely profitable teams within their rules for sure and it kind of felt like that when the news broke on last Thursday or Friday. I think we're sharing all our sports in soccer channels in slack because like Oh my God. What's going to happen now? Nobody knows because it's man city because of their history you know that they're gonNA fight this tooth and nail and they apparently have irrefutable evidence that they are all within the rights of what are under financial fair play so it is like a bellwether because we're not sure what's going to happen going forward now and was this kind of like a house of cards that was bound to fall eventually because of the way the these teams operate and also the fact. They're doing it across like multiple different countries. And you know having to kind of work it out on such a grand scale it. It seemed like something like this was inevitable. Yeah I think every year you you hear these murmurings of like how they signing these players but the the weird thing is for Man City in this case it was actually the the period that they're talking about between twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. It was before when they sign those like fifty million dollar fullbacks. It was before those humongous signings so every year though you heard these memories of weight Harley doing this but his house. Ps genuine this. So yeah it was eventually going to happen. This was some club was gonNA get hit with this and not just a transfer ban from one or two season. This is like an unheard of banned for two years well and PS G. An unmanned city had already been fined. Then these hacked emails came out and this whole other trove of information that is all bringing it back up so it does kind of seem like it's not GonNa so I'm GonNa just go away really protect two step verification guys like. Let's really protect your emails. So it's also possible that the premier league could punish city. The League doesn't have the same fair. Play rules as UEFA but it does have its own requirements for authentic financial records. So they could see you know maybe a points penalty or something like that or titles being rescinded again whole wild world. We have no idea what's going to happen by a point deduction titles rescinded. Who knows but more? Interestingly this year like what happens with them being eliminated next year is where I think. Every fan has like new hope. I know we had just nothing race. The the unless you're a Liverpool fan like this premier league was not super interesting and now all of a sudden there are like six teams vying for two spots in the Champions League. If all of this holds up and suddenly suddenly very exciting right yet and I think it isn't like Jeff said. I have a hard time seeing both years being re if when they appeal so no matter where I think next season you're not gonna see man. Sitting in the Champions League so that fifth spot in the Premier League is a Champions League spot for everybody Sheffield United Teams are stored Manchester United. Had had a seven percent.

"To Kobe Bryant. A slew of rule changes surprisingly fierce competition and a bit of controversy the All Star game which featured a format change that concluded in fourth quarter. Sprint to one hundred fifty. Seven points looks more like a playoff game than it did. An exhibition match up. Here's Doris burks reaction to the game on. Espn I take. They fixed the All star. Game in my estimation I think other leaks need to look at this throughout the course of the game. It elevated in terms of its competitiveness. We spoke in many times on this show about how underwhelming all star Games can feel. Neil does this change to the rule seem to have fixed it as burke suggested in the take. I mean sort of At the end it certainly felt very competitive. They were I know it was a radical concept. They were actually playing defense at the end of the game And so to that extent it did make the finish of the game interesting hard-fought it's still didn't fix the problem of player effort and defense in the early stages of the game. I mean I I think the first quarter score was fifty three to forty one in a quarter but You know maybe that's what we want out of an all star game. Even before this rule change we had seen especially with the adoption of the player versus player draft format that in the final few minutes. If it's close the the player start to actually try their some pride on the line certainly money for charity on the line And that was true even before this new format and I think that this year's change just made like the whole fourth quarter that way because they didn't know you know there wasn't a set amount of time until the game ended. It was just all about like possession for possession. This game can last as long as you want. And it lasted a long time in the sense that they were not making shots at the same rate anywhere near the same rate in that fourth. Quarter as they were In like the first three quarters I kinda liked it because it felt like especially the first two quarters. The third quarter ended up in a tie that in that quarter but the first two quarters felt like that like you know tons of offense of the previous also games and then we got we also got actual defense team plays so we sort of got the best of both worlds of like. Does anyone actually enjoy the version of the All Star game that we've grown so used to where they're just sort of lackadaisically walking down the cordoned throwing lobster each other with no defense? I mean what is who said even four this point I think the alley oops are fun like twice but you can see just from the reaction from this game this little tweak that everyone's like Oh my God it was the best all star game ever. We were wrong. The gimmicks this is great turns out basketball's more exciting when teams are trying. What a concept defense right. How do we ever not realize this? I mean it seems so obvious to me that we've gone through this a few times and again I'm I'm in favor a of novelty and You know experimenting using these All Star Games as a petri dish but the only one of the All Star Games. That's interesting is baseball. Because it's closest to the actual product. So anything you're going to do to move the NBA. All Star game closer to what we see in well particularly playoff basketball is gonna be better to me. It seems obvious that it was a good move and you know maybe they should go even farther with us. I think I'll start tournament. Nhl Style every every game is a race to twenty four points and it's just all the the fourth quarter it just is the All Star game. Yeah that would be really. We didn't really need the first three quarters right. We just didn't really need it. I mean it set up the one team ahead one team needing to come from behind which I guess you want that narrative. No I don't think so. I think that starting them off at zero zero and then raced a twenty four. Would even make it. You know it's closer. Going in the players would try even harder. Yeah and we want guys getting you know going all out and getting injured meaningless exhibition game. I did enjoy the tweets afterwards. Like okay do the pro bowl next fix the other fixed the other leagues next fixing now. That's probably true so the game was set up with a tribute to Kobe. Bryant as a crucial component the target score for the end of the game was twenty four points. More than the point. Total of the leading team after three quarters. Neil do you think that the Kobe themes of the night played a role in the game? Increased Energy I do. I mean there's no way to really prove it but I do feel like Especially when we saw toward the end when a shot could have been like the game winner we saw some guys trying some crazy shots to just be the iconic you know game winner to get to the to the number almost like it did feel like it was in the spirit of Kobe. Trying to take a shot. Some of them were like ridiculous. Heat checks by Lebron like a foot inside half right. Maybe that was a little bit much And contributed to the bad field goal percentage and we have to talk about the fact that a free throw ended the got the team to the to the twenty four point target. What do you guys think about that? Because there was a lot of controversy around that and people saying especially on the losing team saying field goal should decide which I agree with. I feel like it was a little anti-climactic maybe it was a consequence of the harder Defense being played because there were like actual fouls happening in the fourth. Quarter this game. Two and guys. We're going to the free throw line. But it was a little weird. Anthony Davis makes a free throw. It's over like you gotTa win on a on a shot from the field right. I. I'm just full of country takes today but I kinda disagree. I think like there was drama. If what you need is drama for the last shot you got it with his missed free throw is I miss free throw and then there was drama drama. Can there be around a shot that only has at best like a thirty percent chance of missing or whatever you say that things that have a thirty percent chance okay. We go there Sara. Sorry he didn't have to go there. There's no reason to think that would happen again. I mean I mean it could happen again but it won't necessarily happen again. I mean it was a little bit of just bad luck in terms of making as dramatic as possible. I mean couldn't they also make you win by two? Wouldn't that solve it? I don't think that would have solved it here. They did win by two even with the it was one fifty seven to one fifty five. We're in by three. What about window? That's not normal. Nobody I you know I do feel like it's like tennis. The win by two mentality should be in there even. If it's not exactly two right right. Sure that's what I meant to win by two mentality that replaces the Mamba mentality boy or maybe refs. Just you know no fouls no fouls when a team is on brink of winning. Well I kind of agree with that too. I don't disagree with that because you know if we're talking about playground rules which is the spirit of the draft. You know in the two cats getting to pick sides in playground like you know you're GonNa have to score a bucket from the floor to win. Fouls can happen. You call you know you can call your own fouls but that just means you get to take it out and go again for another possession that there's not like free throws involved but if you want all rules if you want the game to mimic a real game to be close to a real game. Oh we're way past that way but that was fun right that it felt more like a real game. I'm with Sarah. I'm for I'm for the free throws you've come as I said before the closer. You get a real basketball. The better so free throws are fine. I'm sorry it ended that way. I'm sorry it didn't end. On some crazy lob dunk that which is really all they do at the All Star game anyway but it ended on an actual real basketball scenario. That's what's so interesting like free throws are things that don't happen in the All Star game when no fouls are being called and it's and there's no defense being played so this part I felt like that was actually fine. I'm complaining about just just for the sake. Okay all right good to know and it was really interesting to see there. Were very few there were substitution. Sort of at the beginning of the fourth quarter and then the teams just stuck with those lineups for the rest of the game because you did see like trae young and I think Don Chech- they were the starters but then they didn't play In favor of like more defensive-minded minded guys like kyle our Kyle lowry playing. You know crucial minutes at the also charges very on band Jasdaq. Yeah this kind of make sense. Why Kyle lowry was there? You know I mean he's not the guy who's GonNa you know. Wow you with acrobatic plays but taking charges because this new world order this is the new all star game where defense matters. I liked that aspect of it. I'm all for coaches really seemed to buy in and they took obviously trae. Young is statistically showboats. Right exactly TRAE. Young is like one of the worst defensive players in basketball and so they were like. Oh man you know now that this. This is like the player we want for the first three quarters of the. All Star game your first three quarters guy. Yeah but then. Now it's the fourth quarter. This is serious business bringing in Kyle lowry now. It counts now count accounts. It's still doesn't count well so I think that the reason why they didn't make the subs though is because well once they got kinda rolling into it. It was all about the competition In those players I think would not have wanted to to come off under any circumstances but also the fact that you didn't really know when the game would end or how much longer there would be in the game because of the the Weird L. Amending scoring system you know and the fact that the twenty four points that they added on to the leading teams score by normal all-star standards that would have taken like a half a quarter at most So I think maybe they were like look. We don't know how long this is. GonNa take so. Let's just roll with it. And then when they started actually playing defense. They're like well. It's too late now. We can't like make subs and pull some of these guys out on this stage right. Also they were all playing really. Well I mean going into the defense was working. Crates WAS YEAH. I of a suggestion here me out since we can do whatever we want. Now with the All Star game. What if they made the subs? Once you were sub down. You couldn't come back in the game so it's a little bit. I guess I'm just trying to make everything like the baseball all star game but it added a little more tactics on one. You deploy certain players when you take the amount and how you can structure lineups. Think about that. That's interesting although mind-blowing would we know so that would mean like you wouldn't start the game with like Lebron you might actually start with a weaker lineup or you or more balanced lineup or you might wait and see who the other team puts on the court and you know hockey style tried to match up. Certain guys you'd stagger the stars. I like that I try to change every aspect of this because it needs improvement. I hate the NBA. All Star game. I'm not shy about making that point. I can't stand it I find unwatchable so you should be in charge of changing it. Then maybe maybe me I think yeah. I mean if we're borrowing for hockey. They should just make subs in the middle of the play okay. That's one of the many things that I don't understand that at all anyway. The highlight of the all-star weekend is usually the famed dunk contest. This year's competition did not disappoint requiring an additional two rounds of competition before a Derek Jones. Junior of the Miami Heat finally claimed a single point. Victory over Orlando's Aaron Gordon. Despite Gordon's final round dunk over seven foot five Taco fall robbery Marion. We'll get to that. There was a lot of controversy over the judge's decision. Okay so I personally felt that Jones deserved the win. In the first Tiebreaker Round Jones had the dunk from the side where the ball is tossed off the side of the backboard and then went through his legs. And then Gordon did his third dunk of the night over. Chance the rapper. Which was my first problem there. But it was a carbon copy of previous dunk. Jones had done over two dudes instead of just one but I might be outnumbered here I think. What did you guys think of dust? First of all? I think Gordon did that just to show like. Hey you did this dunk. I can do this dunk but I also did my other. Dunks were better than your dunks and I mean Gordon was the better dunker I think consistently throughout the contest. He did more interesting dunks. You probably disagree. And that's not what it's about but I think the scoring system and the way the judge's work are like have poisoned the contest because first of all they because we know who the judges are able to kind of Chit Chat with each other at the scoring table..

I know they'd never give up a third night but academia to feel like boy we just have to the people want to. It's like Oh yeah. I won't miss this Saturday Sunday. Or Why is it? Just put it on right before the All Star game even on Sunday the rising stars. Yeah. I'm fine with it so rare that you make any first year in the play a ewbal play nine games and was also trained. Don-shik who both barely platen in the all-star game but it's like that happened so rarely as it is. Someone's in both so yeah. I don't I don't know I think it's it's interesting. I just think it. It's too much talent in that game for just be like Friday night. People aren't even really paying attention yet. And the celebrity games right before it or after it one of the maybe after it. Good bye it deserves better than paired with that like USA versus world like keep training talent. So I agree. It should like you'd have to add something to it more None of you need to be your Friday to put the same day as Lib. That's disrespectful right. We'll see you guys Thursday..

"Steady. Contin the White Board game. That was a good dump. It was great it was that and it was when you're when because I I felt like nine dunks we're all just like let's see what humans we can jump over. Yes that's where it was. I think the thing that helped Jones there. He was pretty much nail in a mall. I travelled for a while. Just like yeah. I was like you bring out smaller. Chance the rapper year ever so many that pissed me at. That's why I wasn't too upset about Aaron Gordon losing because he just kept bringing chance the rapper out however Derek Jones's first dunk which got a really good score like forty eight something like that. He pushed he pushed off Bam shoulders. Which when everyone else's clearing everyone and when Aaron Gordon all but clears TACO. That's when it's like. Yeah but like that got pushed off. That's why it's hard. That's CONISTON CONISTON with the white boys can't jump and what the off the backboard now that they actually now the judge is actually not look for the replay. Before the Tha. That was good. Yeah I thought those were two really strong ones and I bet he had something else. Kokin but that's like Dark Jones and I'm not even saying that because on pick state by guys like Jones never win I thought he for for for what that guy typically brings he was the opposite was he was delightful. It was really good. Duncan does Aaron Gordon Zach Levine. Like Diet like it was. It wasn't as good but it wasn't a full step behind it either. It was just a little behind it so I wasn't upset that we got a really good dunk contest. But it was Kinda in a way a perfect setup for how the actual all star game ended a little weak in the front Mostly Goes Dwight Howard was involved and I don't think I can't remember second. Get all but the one where he win the reverse. Three sixty in stared at all the judges. That was a good. I don't know what he got on it the other way. It was good enough. What hurt that one was? It was a that was the first song of the night right for any yet very so it's like no you got to do like a front flip to get anything above like a forty nine like they're just. You can't set the bar letter right of Aaron. Gordon had broke that out last like if Dwight hadn't done Gordon did that last. It would've tore the roof off the place but to go I. It's very hot crowd. You go first and that one relied on the replay to show like how much better it was. Can't go I there if he had done the Kobe tribute i. I think maybe we would've seen Dwight in the second round that was trying to Nelson here. What's going on tape I've got? I've got a rewatch. I WanNa see all the dunks and order. Get Gordon I think. Aaron Gordon has the most fifties in dunk contest history. I think someone had that Stott. No hasn't won any of them. That's rough. That's real Rimirad. I guess I think one of the ones Had protests to where he might have to file a legit Glam. I don't know who the board would take. I mean he will due diligence. He was not pumped in his Post Post Game Post Dunk contests. Qna Yes that's stuff. I want to say I can't imagine was because it was Kinda like once way did it. Somebody made you behind me was like Oh yeah he was never gonNa Voting Miami and Pro Life Long. The problem was the other judges. Were naive to the fact that Wade was going to do that. Because the story came out I think Haman will also brother. We'll get to the said that they talked about they were going to have a tie again and so it was like Chadwick and Vote the same as they voted for Dark Jones so I think it was Chadwick. Common gave nines and weighed her that he was just. I Bet I kinda like that no there but I like things like Catering I'm trying to be old. I don't know how many more around would have had honestly like food. Input like chance. On top of tackle shoulders an Jumblatt blow Disheartening part I thought docking over TACO was such a perfect ending to such a wreck. Because he didn't want to come out leaders you could tell he was being bashful. I'm tall I got and that but what's up to friends. That's awesome that the nicest person in the world But the second like they talking about peer pressure. Everyone of the buildings. Get your tall ass out there Taco you. You're saying in the matter here you're going to say. I mean you gotTa fake it with a League. He had to get off that coat. Man I think he was just gonNA play He didn't give them like a full twelve. No this all now. Barely brush my hair man. I just threw something. He had the pants to with the the vertical stripes just to make himself look a little taller for the kids. That's why I was like. Wow this guy's upwards sixer six foot one eight is. He was drying out to be In Radioactive Man. The movie Yes. He had a Chihuahua to add on that. For Wade to just throw it was such an all-time scumbag wherever I am. Starting to come around on it because it is just the dunk contest but I did feel bad for our Gordon. That's awesome yes. Because he was like I keep going until I get it or is it just sitting around Buffalo Bills? Gordon said he's done. I feel like you said this layer could be wrong but I thought he was on like no. I couldn't do come on earth okay. I'll do one last time all right. Let's fuck you. Over one. More time you got fucked. Levin beat him like Levin did a what like between fucking legs from the free throw line like what? Leo's Greg Dunk on as an Aaron Gordon would certainly no scrub but I do think Gordon want yet I would give about. I think they would each of wannabes. But if he if he got that one we never see him. Jump over teco he would have scratched. His Age didn't matter in the long run because he's still lost. I think he lost cause came out in a terrible Jersey Avenue. All the Orlando They forced him off because even in the skills contest and three point cod. They're all wearing their alternates. I can wear any other alternate like we've but cannot relate to alternate royal blue pinstripe hats and all the I I get a lot of. There are a lot of confusing tweets. This weekend there. It was like people weren't on the same page typically like a group thing crowd the crowds Mob mentality like Gigolos. What's going on I was talking about? I'm sorry about the Magic Jerseys. People like it's a nod to the orange trees. I think it's pretty cool. I was like it's not that I hate the the nod to Florida. It's you just can't add orange thirty years after you've got so it's not how this works. You just can't do that. I've got some bad news because I did an common with. I'm usually not a game supposed to start at eight. It's eight Oh seven times to complain like I if you watch sports and you don't give it like a twelve minute grace period. I don't know what kind of a patient that is. But God bless you. This started at like eight forty for eight o'clock tip that was that -rageous eight eight literally eight forty one and I looked on the court and they would just now starting to get shots up like in the warm ups. I'm black. I'll come on so you go to the actual game or were you already back in Atlanta Esa. Now's back with it okay. So yeah they really dragged out and common man loves them. Some spoken-word if if he's going to get like huge endorsement deals and then headline all-star. Intros by doing it. I'm not gonNA townies. Is doing it wrong? Clearly doing some right however ever gonNA arrive. Everyone's names you can't just mail in like Leonard and obstacle Bo- like you got to commit IGA figgy. You're going to go all in on the bit. I'm not biting and I roasted under the mix tape account and I got a lot of responses ban lagging way off on this one. I was like what was going on here. I think twenty nine okay had not gonNa do it for Tangas. Starters no like no. No no you gotta do one for every like the judges like we need one for a Reggie Miller he's like Okay I'll do it on the fly. It was it took forever. I get I get that to do Kobe. Stuff of course Brief mention of David Stern for sure they gave. They gave the entire oral history of everything that's ever happened in the city of Chicago Like Obama popped up Jordan pop up all over the map. Yeah big three remarried. That was way too long like there were several times. I thought they were gonNA ended and then they'd be like here's Bing crosby he's performed here before just like what's happening here Ryan Sandberg Tellers. Your favorite alleged. That refused to stop but I do every time Jordan speaks. I feel like I'm always a little shocked seat. Just doesn't for a guy who very publicly owns a basketball team doesn't speak that much publicly our respect and that's what made me really good law tweeted Jones got an incredible voice..

"To be real telltale for them in post also a team. That relies very heavily on three guys. Pg and Lou Williams score for them they don't have a lot of guys kaput ball make a play we seen. Lou Williams play. Maybe quite the same level has in the past like they are in a perfect team. And I and I think the Marcus Morris deal allows them to maybe not play now. You've got a closing line of two way players. And now Lou Williams I think takes more of more. I don't know that you're going to see him in those closing situations when they're at full strength. No question I mean that that's been one of the things I've wondered about this going all the way back to the off season when they put it together was could Lou Williams. The Guy doesn't Really Guard. Anybody play critical moments like we saw last year with the raptors. They won the guys who can play at both ends. We saw that against the box right. I mean that was a big reason why they got through and really won that series on the final. So you know I just. I really can't underscore that. Marcus Morris pickup. I think was huge for them. Keeping away from the Lakers and for the variety thinks he can do for them. And then last thing Milwaukee. Toronto BOSTON PHILADELPHIA. Raptures finally lost before the all-star break After winning fifteen in a row do do we take the raptors seriously as legitimate a legitimate threat to the box again in the east the No the short answer is no. I mean I combed Leonard made such a huge difference for that raptors team and I know that in the regular season the bucks were able to get a little cocky because they did win. I believe three out of four meetings against the raptors. And then they kind of crumbled in the Eastern Conference finals but coli was a Yana stopper in that series And the thing that Mike Boone holes are told me last year was what they were. Betting on was that the bucks system wouldn't fail for out of Seven Games that system that requires four shooters to be on the floor creating space for honest but Janas got better. He's now able to kind of create space for other people. He's a better shooter. They lost Kawhi LEONARD AND. I just think that I was really impressed by that. Raptors streak just like. I'm really impressed by that drill down but I don't think I I. It will be interesting to see if the rappers can hold onto that to seat. I know they're motivated to continue what they started before this break. But Milwaukee is far ahead of any other team in the East right now the thing about the raptors. It's funny from where they were before is up until last year. There is a team that lost right. There is a team that failed and now that they got over the mountaintop last year without Kawhi they believe they can beat everybody and they have total confidence in Milwaukee for Boston for Philly Miami and a win and they think they can beat anybody now can they. We'll see I mean they do have some flaws. They wanted to get more offensive punches. The deadline they were unable to do that. Look I think is far as beating. Milwaukee goes it's to your point. Can the box actually follow through four out of seven times? All the way through the East in Michael Knowles our system and Ken Philly FA team the most sculptural team in the league. That when they're at home looks all time and on the road as marketers. The Knicks can they show up in the playoffs every single game because they in my opinion still have the highest ceiling of any of these eastern conference teams and if they show up the way they're capable of in the in the Eastern conference playoffs despite all the issues. They've had they can still get out of the ISA finals guys. They are tearing up the press room at the United Center. It's cue to get out of here. Go home so we will. We will head into the rest of our all star break here get out of Chicago.

"If you're not satisfied you get your money back last. Stretch run now the season guys. What are you thinking about? You look at Lakers glitzy. Let's start with Lakers clippers right now on a lake in a clipper team. That's still trying to get healthy. Paul George his groin again before the break. He's missed a bunch of games. Patrick Beverley has been out. He'll be back. He played against the wishes of clippers. Management was in the was not gonNa Miss The skills challenge in his hometown. And and Marcus Morris. Trying to fit in figure out you know figure out a chemistry with his group. But what do you do the to? La Teams now is we start kind of rounding third and heading for head for the playoffs. I mean from my perspective. You right now. The clippers are up three nothing even four. Nothing maybe you go back to the summer got Leonard. They've won the first two meetings. And then they got Marcus Morris. Those were the four times when they went head to head this year. Clippers swept him and I think when you look at that match up you know. I think the Lakers probably should feel pretty good about being able to beat the rest of the competition in the West. But if they have to line up against the clippers the evidence we have to. This point makes pretty clear. The clippers are the security. I mean I I would have to agree with that. It seems like the Lakers have put together a really strong roster. They've come out and they were really strong heading into the all star break. They were able to fix a lot of their little issues. It they seem to be having with their roster but for whatever reason the clippers seemed to be able to be a really good match for them whether or not. That's because they have these crafty guards that can get around them whether or not it's because they're so deep whether or not it's because they're so well coach but I also think what's interesting with the clippers is they have this chemistry that has seemed carryover even with the two new guys that they've S- three new guys that have been fitting in the they've really been able to keep that team identity or the Lakers of kind of been starting from scratch in that way. And then you can't overlook you know what happened with the death. Kobe Bryant and how that kind of through that organization a little bit so if they will be able to just keep steamrolling ahead and moving forward what? I'm saying that the clippers have that The Lakers around as they have multiple guys guard. Lebron James and the Lakers have no one who can guard Kawhi Leonard. That's why the Marcus Morris thing was so critical because he was a guy that if he came to the Lakers he could guard Kawhi and now they have no one like that. And when you look at the Lakers games this year against the clippers the box the sixers and the Celtics. Lebron struggled and all the things that they have in common or big physical wings. Second Guard Lebron trouble. Yeah I just I. You worry about health though with the clippers because they've not been able to keep that team on the floor. Leonard. It's Ben he's not gonNA play back to backs and it's been more rest with him. But Paul George has had some these nagging. Those nagging Groin Hamstring. That sometimes keep recurring. And that's what you worry about. I think like just got hurt in the last game before the all-star break in Boston exactly and I think the one thing about this Laker team is with the exception of that The fall that Anthony Davis took that lower back which was just a bruise. They've been durable. Lebron Anthony Davis have been available. And I do like I think. Top to bottom the clippers are deeper. They have a stronger bench mark. Marcus Morris was a critical pickup. But like if you're the clippers I think you're still worried about health and That's you know that to me is going.

You know earlier today as we bring NBA all star weekend to a close here in Charlotte, North Carolina, our very own Mark catcher had a chance to catch up with NBA Commissioner, Adam silver, Mr Commissioner here. We are wrapping up another all star weekend. How has the city of Charlotte and all that goes along with all star weekend treated you in the league the city of Charlotte has responded in just an absolutely fantastic way. I'm we have about one hundred and fifty thousand people have come to town. And at least everyone I've run into. Over the last four days has had a fantastic experience. And we have roughly two hundred legends in town. They've worked throughout the community from everything from junior NBA clinics to packing lunches and meals for the homeless, and of course, participating in the activities in the arena. So we couldn't be happier with the experience here. And I don't think you could be any happier to have better host than the curry family. Whether it staff for Seth or dad Dell the entire family. What's been there impact your this weekend? Or first of all, I didn't quite realize they were the first family of Charlotte. And they have been everywhere. Amazing. Steph still has legs for the game tonight. But they they've done everything and been everywhere. And I don't say that, you know, Dell is a legend here in Charlotte. In addition to being responsible for two fantastic NBA players. He's remained involved with this organization since he got here in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and he's a fixture in the community as is his wife, and I met his mom earlier today at the legends brunch. And they're wonderful people. And when we use the term NBA family, that's what it's all about with Adam silver, the Commissioner of the NBA here at all star weekend. Let's tackle just a couple of of the big news e- issues, including the Anthony Davis saga, which you spoke about in your press conference yesterday.
