Fresh update on "bam" discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show

"I didn't hear you. I don't know if you don't let me hold again, but you know, you got this guy, Shannon, I tell you about him. He's an excuse or is an excuse artist he wants to put out thoughts information against me, which is typical of people that got nothing. He's got nothing. He did attack me on the show. And I know you remembered he did it about a month ago. He did it more than once. But that's all I got, Paul. They got excuses. They got false propaganda attacks. They got no game. Shannon, you got no game. You're the jackass. You idiot. That's all I got, Paul, but I'm sorry. I just can't take idiots like him, you know? Thank you, Jim. Larry is up next, speaking of people who are not idiots. You remember it pretty well, don't you? Oh, yeah. I haven't thought about anything else this weekend, other than your call. Yeah, right. Now, man, you know what? You asked me why do you think I'm a winning? I told you. I told you why. You didn't like us complete food, you know? And Larry, let's revisit that phone call. You said Larry, what's going to happen? He said, bam is going to go and win. I said, why are they going to win? And you said? Right. You sure did say that. No, Larry. Doesn't matter how cogent your explanation was. It was correct. Yeah, you know, you said some Sunday that I was listening to you like on Sunday when the games were over. Yeah. And you said something that was really about you said, yeah, these bamboo fans a lot of them just call in and get people fired and just listen 5 and you're right. But I have never planned with my team. I'll let the coaches Simon and the coaches take care of that farm. But you know, but you know after the a and M game and after the LSU game and other games, I mean, there were a lot of calls right here. We want pea golden fire. We want to Bill O'Brien fired. We want Doug maroon fire. Frankly, Doug moron. Doug marrone may have won the SEC championship for Alabama with how he got that line prepared. In moron, they don't find out attention. The main reason why we lost in the craft. And I'm trying to rebuild outline and we get the center. Then there's an end. I play attention to that. But I don't know I want it when. Oh, my brother's father's sick of him. By and what they are just moron. They are not. When you're a fan is like red dog, these take place. They might call in, they took it. And I respect these guys. I think this was a little bit different for Kirby smart because it's like remember when Alabama lost LSU and 2011 within two weeks, they were already back in it. So you remember a season by how it ends, not what happened on the first weekend in December. My I could do. I'm just hilarious. I'm just worried about you worried about Cincinnati at all? I worry about everybody power. I don't know. I want that team throw that bow around. My God. Then I got their own thing going on. And when you take a team and say, oh, man, are you laying upon be careful? Well, Larry, thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Let's check in with Mike and Jacksonville. Hey, Mike. Hey, Paul, how are you doing? Oh, Mike, we're doing great. Well, I will tell you. I'm like this. I don't really feel curious smart is really a friend of Nick Saban. He's afraid of Nick Saban. Yeah. That defense did not play against Alabama the way they played the whole year. No. They gave Bryce young the Heisman award. They put it in his hand. You're right, when he gets up there, stary night. He shouldn't thank his own offensive line. He should thank the Georgia defense of line. Thank them for taking the night off. Hey, thanks for the call. We're up against a break. We have a lot to do. We.

Bezosism: The Way Amazon Uses Tech to Squeeze Performance out of Workers

"You think your boss is watching you at work. Monitoring your every move well if your manager is a series of cameras sensors and algorithms. Then you're not wrong. And that may also mean you work at an amazon fulfillment center. The company known for the detailed tracking of packages and user. Information is also tracking the movements of workers at its warehouses looking to precisely measure efficiency and increase productivity wall street. Journal's tech columnist christopher mims calls this bazo schism named after amazon founder jeff bezos. He's got an upcoming book about it called arriving today from factory to front door why everything is changed about how and what we buy any joins me now. Hi christopher hay zoey. Thanks for having me so christopher you coined the term bazo schism. What exactly does that mean so. Basis ism is the combination of sensors and software to measure. How well somebody is doing their job. And then use software which has of course logic or an algorithm in it which was defined by an engineer. Somewhere to then tell that worker okay. You're doing a good job or you're not doing a good job or you need to be doing this differently. And so bazo. Schism or management by algorithm or management by software. At the end of the day it is just about creating a set of rules and then handing it to a machine to enforce those roles so the person's boss is software. Okay can you tell us about some of those metrics. That amazon is gathering maybe give an example of how one of them works so the primary metric is just the rate at which somebody is doing something so the amount of time it takes them to complete any of the relevant tasks picking items off the shelf scanning them. Dropping him in a bin is their rate. So it's a very basic metric. It measures the one sort of performance. That bams on really cares about

"No not not that. I remember You know wisconsin during the time that was during a time of looking at a big nasty he'll and using them as a one off against diesel is a big face champion that we were looking to fee. So i don't think that was was actually a consideration. But god bless texas jared. Thomas davis wants to know Who's the one guy who would have been an amazing opponent for bam bam that we never got to see you know. I think that if you were to equate it to of all time look at you. Look at a guy. Like he's i think would have been an amazing opponent type thing just agility and what have you but on on the other side of it You're gonna laugh at this ankle. We've been able to get matches out of bam. Bam would have been extraordinary. Tremendous corey wants to now. Was there anyone other than bam. Bam considered for work with lt wrestle. Many eleven. so let's just pretend even if the answer was no who else on that roster could have done anything I think razor could've done it. Wow that's a great call. You know in could've done it. Well but i think also at the time. Razor was was a gimmick. But i think that razor because he was a gimmick would have been great but his is building work and his ability to talk a big good looking pastor. I think would have been a hell of a match up at rocky. Rockier fifty two says could bam bam her fit in both the attitude and ruthless aggression era. Yeah definitely was some tweaks a again. I think that one thing that lacked in bam bam offense was aggression I don't know that he always had that. That killer birthday aggression jeff lawson says larry sharpe had been managing bam bam bigelow up to this point and bam bam had said in our guest shoot interview. Vince mcmahon didn't want larry sharpe and went with oliver humperdinck. Instead is there any truth to this. What's the full story. And they sort of touched on an earlier but the year. Remember there being a decision that okay we want bam bam but we don't Yes okay and i think that lert larry was larry was selling himself. You know as a package with bam bam bam bam made it very clear also that they weren't a package so there's two sides that story gonnet Greg says we ever tip to the tattoo on your head. And if so what would it be Save with conrad dot com. Thank you appreciate that one. Last one steve aids wrestling. Since was there ever any time.

"Rumor and innuendo from the observer at the time the idea was that after bigalow put over taylor they would have mutual respect. Bigalow was to turn baby face and it will lead to summer slam where they would form a tag team but after doing one wrestling match taylor decided against another whether it was the bad publicity or a saw himself selling his career. Taylor would later say. Doing wrestlemainia was a decision. He regretted and we never saw him again. Wbf tv. but when i said he was supposed to do something summer slam me were shocked so i guess you're caller bull shift and calling bull shit agree never the case. It was always a one and done yes. Did you ever pitch anything else. Or were you like now of pitch. We pitched if lt would like to get the business. The door was open for. I see so not as a one off like you know. If you wanna work topeka come on over. Yeah or wichita sure why not you know Bigalow is ultimately fired from the million dollar corporation and turned baby face after losing these on the april twenty fourth edition of monday night raw and then bam bam and diesel are put together against sit to talk for the main event of king of the ring. Nineteen ninety-five in philadelphia. We've talked about this show before but process these names diesel bam bam to talk and sit and they go seventeen minutes and thirty five seconds it gets a star and a half but Meltzer would be critical saying had a flat finish. Basil's going to give to talk a What's very sloppy jack. Knife and he's gonna pick the talk up at two signal. He wants said the tag in and said just walks to the dressing room to build up their rematch which leaves taco alone to be Penned this is not the best creative we ever had that be. F- can we agree. Holly was that bad. It was to build to lex pay per view on a near show There's talk you know. In hindsight this is around the time when the quote unquote click would start to as bigalow described sabotage his career. He felt like they were shifting on his work to the powers-that-be and it was obviously affecting his push and he uses this match as an example of that. Do you think in hindsight bigalow is just being paranoid. O or was there some real professional gel. See that you know. Politics blake because they are a thing. It was actually both and i think it was bam bam being overly paranoid and it was also the click giving them reason to be paranoid by telling him they were doing. These things was vents listening to it from the side of alma. God i've got some about bam bam no vince like bam bam was continuing wanting to do something with bam bam but i think that the click in those guys kinda played into bam's paranoia shawn michaels is really going to turn around the same time as bam bam did and i think he would even say even that overture overshadowed his turn and he's gonna continue. This feud with the million dollar corporation leading to a pay per view match against henry. Godwin is trying out to be a member of the club here and he gets his last pay per view. Win the wwf in your house to is going to lose to the british bulldog on in your house. Three and supposedly afterwards negotiates a release to end his contract with. Vince mcmahon early. What are you remember about how his run came to an end and what he was frustrated about. Or i finished his up after Survivor series ninety. Five putting over gold is on the way out. But why was he looking to leave. It's not like wrestling's here in a boom in this era. Yeah i think that he was just kind of feeling and buying into the height of a the click is really burying. You knew all that that he didn't feel that he had a way out in thank you. That was one of those events in. I even told him. It's like scott. Just do your shit man go out and do your job and stop worrying about what the boys are telling you. What the boys are starring in your head. Go out and do your shit as odd. Don't think i can succeed here. Any wanted up so the fact that he was that uncomfortable wanted out. That bad lead. Vince saying okay well. Do you think. Vince was or perhaps bam bam thought. Vince was disappointed him. Or maybe he was disappointed. Convinces just feels like if you're working wrestlemainia in the main event with with a non wrestler and then on the heels of that you're i don't know maybe a little lost in the shuffle. I don't remember anybody main of anything wrestlemainia and leaving the company the same calendar year. Well i don't think he was lost in the shuffle. He was put into a place where he could have thri. But i think in his own head. It was not going to happen. You know what i mean. Yeah he already convinced himself. Well this will never happen. Because they hate me they That wasn't case so he's going to go back to The independence he finds himself an easy w becomes a big player. There wins their world. Title eventually jumps. Ww for a bigger contract starts by attacking goldberg but very quickly. He's sort of moved down the food chain there and of course we know. Wcw's purchased by the wwf while bam bam was under contract so he's going to run out the time warner deal and never worked for a major promotion again. Were you surprised that he never popped back up anywhere. Were you guys ever interested in reaching out and seeing if maybe something could you guys would bring people back all the time. Like a royal rumble spot. You know mr perfect or gold dust or whoever just one off the only like that ever even get discussed for bambi. I don't remember it really being the scouts. But i would say that the door would have always been open for him. He sadly passed away. January nineteenth two thousand seven unfortunately due to a drug overdose. Like so many of the folks. We've heard over. The years was the last time you talked to bam bam in winter. How do you remember finding out the news that he was no longer with us. God last time i saw bam bam was internec- w event I couldn't even tell you what that timeframe was but it was. It was cordial is great to see him. You know and hugged and share pleasantries back and forth and talk for a little. I was the last time that i saw. What do you think his legacy will be. Not the senate every effort in wrestling. It feels like a guy who you know. I mean he did some great stuff. But i don't know. Is it fair to say that potential still the word that would be thrown around for him. Because i don't feel like he achieved all that he could if he had talent that was bigger than what we got to see. I think that would probably be the best. Scripture is to say that he had a great deal of potential. I don't know that that potential was completely lived up to think that he based on his luck on his ability that he should have been much bigger than he was in achieve much more than he did. We got a lot of questions about bam. Bam has got a ton of fans. There's no way we'll get to all well. Let's do a few here. Jared from texas whilst no well there ever any consideration using him in the maple spot in ninety. Five of heard kevin. Nash say that although they may not have gotten along he had no issues working with bam..

I'm i'm i'm going to be going to be be your ass you'll get back on track here or more crack the whip on chick. The match was entertaining and both deserve credit for keeping it from being bad. And you know. Listen i know that seems like a negative way to go into it but if you really are arresting quote unquote purist a lot of times. When you hear. There's going to be celebrity involvement. The biggest thing you can hope for is just. Don't let it be a disaster and this was anything by right who's excellent. I agree damn good man come on for an outsider to come in and have the performance and lt had absolutely tremendous especially with the omen of the huge pyro. That we have planned for lt which of these giant letters lt that lit up and then shot off all this crazy pyro and everything and the fucking thing fell. It was probably. I don't know maybe twenty feet above the ring and they lower the damn thing we get ready to shove sheet off the pyro to rehearse it and see how it looks and everything first time doing it and you know it's one of those everybody clear back from the rain. We're going to be lowering this. We're going to be shooting pyro. We gotta test us. Make sure it's good. And it hits the fucking i don't know if it was the l. Were the t. One of the letters just drops in crashes in the rain early on. I guess we'll be doing that. Interest tonight next adam that shit down and take it back would i. I think it was the l. because it like broke that's Fucking horrible man. Who is like god damn it but then it would have been cool have been able to do so still be in an open somewhere. Tell me about Vince is reaction to this match. See all over bam bam when he comes through the curtain in guerrilla great ship palsy. Thrilled with what he's saying here. Yeah loved it. who's excellent. Was dammed a job on. Everyone's part even you. You go back in the football players that we had down there. That were pros. All the way through. Chris spillman class. Just personify ken norton statement michael. They were all every one of them was eight pleasure to work with and happy to be there that i remember them coming up Like the day of or the day before we have in the day before they were all arriving in the lobby of the hotel. And just were just just fucking great but they asked us of. I'm hey I hear you guys have a party after wrestlemainia Do you think we would. We be able to come to that. The parties for you you know and they all came and were just respectful great That was a great crew of people from outside of our business came in appreciated everything. We did and embraced. Let's talk about the show Even though at immediately afterwards you guys are bragging that said all kinds of records on pay per view it fell short. It was down fifteen percent from wrestlemainia ten but the gay was seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Which isn't like double or wrestlemainia. Ten was and in fact. It's the seventh largest gay in america so huge numbers here and the pay per view is actually costing more money so even though we're down fifteen percent when total buys win for twenty nine ninety five to thirty four ninety five so we did get an increase their Do you remember being disappointed. That all this mainstream publicity and press didn't translate to the number of originally hoped it was a little disappointing but at the same time. There was a temporary expectations because looking at l. tea's appeal outside of the new york market. You had to be realistic about it. Yes he was a bad ass football player. He was beloved in new york Bananas football player doesn't translate to the rest of the world this an american spy Yeah but i mean not was enough of a of a celebrity beyond that that we kinda hoped would but at the same time we all kinda had the right. This is going to be good for. This is going to get a lot of outside media in different eyeballs on us into that it did. Was it as big as we hoped. I don't think so as far as featuring the nfl we've certainly seen other opportunities where nfl players got involved and wwe but we haven't seen another nfl player. Headliner wrestlemainia do you think that could ever happen. Is there such a thing as make at this point feels like. Wb is such a global brand. Obviously what's part time. It was primarily north america. But that's a longer the case. And i just think i'll just wonder you know does football translate. Maybe the way basketball or soccer. Some of the other sports i- globally. I don't think it does. But however when you look at the united kingdom and what have you. Football's big deal over there. Yeah i think the rest of the world when the when you say football. They're talking soccer so it doesn't necessarily translate in less. It's a tom brady. Or you know. Peyton manning somebody like that peyton would mean shit right now but a tom brady will. Here's something worth discussing The rumor and innuendo from the observer at the time the idea was that after bigalow put over taylor they would have mutual respect. Bigalow was to turn baby.

"Guns are forced to vacate at noon to an injury. They defeat minnesota mission and the head drinkers to get to the finals. Which happened at the royal rumble ultimately. They're gonna lose their two one. Two three kid bob. Holly have plenty of time. Fifteen minutes and thirty two seconds Milton actually dug. He gave it three and three quarter stars. Of course the next night Kid and holly are going to lose the titles to the smoking guns because they're back in action but this is around the time when things start to really look up for bam bam not winning. The tax straps. No big deal. I got lawrence taylor. The rumor and innuendo from dave meltzer. Tom said the lawrence taylor angle with bam bam. Bigelow must have been great because many people who were calling after the show thought it was a shoot because of how vincent man sold it on monday night. They really played up as if it were a shoot with. Vincent apologizing for and announcing bigalow is being suspended without pay. Bring bigelow alfred apology. It was obviously an angle because it fit perfectly into the story line at the show with people laughing at bigelow for losing the kid they mentioned taylor being. They're giving a reason far too many times for them not to be running angle with him over. That means The get the giveaway live was that taylor was laughing about an afterwards and that the following night they made too many mentions of it if the man had done the apology and it would have been dropped and forgotten. That would have been one thing but the second time it was brought up. Made an obvious. They're doing japanese angle. Oh then it must've been great since the wbf has never done japan style angles. This will all look like a work because a lot of the people will be buying it so list an interesting. The way this thing is jean me. Talk to me about the creative of him you know sort of poking fun at bam bam and being part of the crowd and then it becomes a real. I mean that's a cool concept. Cool way to get a mainstream celebrity involved. It was played perfection. Lt's ariel t- loved to golf and lt you know was there to golf and people that knew l. t. in the sports role at all you know made perfect sense bam's out there having a match l. Having a good time throughout the night everybody's laughing l. in on it hey laughing at bam bam bam bam wants to be cool with him goes hey man just having fun. Hey man really good match bam takes exception to fuck you. Man in the heat of the moment and lt played it off perfectly firing back in all this shit because it was it was real. It was good. It was it was damn good angle. We got it from all the japanese Commentary that we went back and studied you. How the commentator sold all lab. The builder wrestlemainia is really unlike anything. We've ever seen it at the time. It's built around the million dollar corporation and all the nfl players lt is going to have at ringside house lt. To deal with. We'll see difficult. This easy deal put together. Hannity take the training and all that chasse absolutely fantastic top notch man Came and trained worked his ass off trained his ass off. Having respect for the business was an absolute natural getting in the ring and really worked hard changing and trained hard so I know we don't talk about current stuff but earlier this year people were bragging about how great bad bunny was and he took to wrestling and took it seriously center. Excetera would would not have been in that same category with somebody who just was really putting forth their best effort not just trying to coast on being a a a quote unquote mainstream star. Yeah anime again. You know it was here was a guy that was willing to do anything and everything and wanted didn't want to be embarrassed. Wanted to go out and buses. I asked him prove he could do something else. And this was looked at from l. Tease point of view. Something fun and another way to keep his name out there in the world. How involved was pat patterson and putting together their match at wrestlemania. Pat was in there every night with them and working with them bat. Was there every single workout and helped lay out that match. Just you know. Get everybody comfortable once a time. This was a bigger deal than it honestly became but was there ever any discussion with bam bam about what was happening. I mean it feels like it's a natural of orange taylor's winning. He just know that going in. Or is that a serious discussion. That had to happen now like everybody knew that. Going in so the wrestlemainia press conference the only the only people that it's a big deal to win and lose people that aren't in the business for the most part way nobody's ever came to you and argued about a finnish. Some people have. Yeah but for other reasons. Other than i don't wanna lose. Yeah like oh my god. Losing such a bad thing a lot of times it comes back to. What's the phrase we hear Where do we go from there or something like that right. Yeah which is a fair question. Sure so what do the royalty press conference in new york for wrestlemainia and lt accepts. Bigalow challenge quote anytime anyplace There's a public workout at times square. We've talked about the are cast with the diesel episodes. But really it's just a huge gathering that heels lt in bam turned into a gigantic brawl which is just a great visual. You guys of course would recreate the sort of public workout media. Chaos from prescott. Swear and did a did a public workout it noon in times square in front of that little ticket office and shit set up a ring. Shut it down. Had our our buses for dressing rooms across the street It was an ungodly Spectacle it was it was brutal and it was so damn good but everybody was there for several reasons. One that we shut down times square and the we had this hoopla and this just mass chaos in the middle of new york city Middle a lunch for everybody inches. Traffic jams everywhere..

"He said oh perfect. Looney was sean is put with alot. Of course she had the best head. That years we know is that pairing simply because of their heads. Great head. great head. The f. edgy mine. Sai- so it's for trade is luna being portrayed as luna being his main squeeze but it's never really gone into that they're attached to romantically like you don't see some of the on camera sparks that you would in other situations like this but he does refer to as his main squeeze. He taught me through the like squeeze each other. This is fun. You're not my big squeeze. I appreciate that medium. Squeeze bam bam bigelow first singles match main on paper though He's our mexican squeeze catering against bret. Hart we covered the archives. But still when he gets to go on top with brett here. That's kind of a big deal and a vote of confidence now that we're out of the quote unquote hall hogan era and we're in the bread hard era one of the first guys who's going to work with bam bam bigelow pretty cool little I think it is but it was also a testament to no matter. What with the exception of times that he was hurt. I don't know that bam bam's work in the rain was anything that anyone ever really complained about. Not i think the bam bam was always A great worker was able to deliver in the rain. Bam bam to talk are matched up after king of the ring and it leads to sherri martel to talk coming together against luna and bigalow and bam bam is actually a part of series. Last wwf appearance in wilkes barre pennsylvania when luna and bigalow are going to attack sherry but the talk makes the save. We've covered that in the archives but was it important to sheree to sort of help. Put the rub on luna on her way out here. That -solutely in sharing was probably one of the most unselfish talents. You'd ever run into sherry loved to get other people over uwe. You told us a little bit earlier. There was never really a question about bam bam's in ring work. Well on the heels of this is going to start putting over to taco on most of the shows because the taka doing an undefeated streak but we just read earlier that perhaps he had an attitude has first. Wf run. does he have any issues putting over to talk on the house show loops here. No he didn't have to be disgusted about it. Why it's like. Oh my god. In couple of cities in japan he was come on china about the rest of the world versus an isolated area. When it wasn't about that it was that perhaps he got treated like a star with their came back with case of the big head. That's the way i ran it. Okay it's announced that some are ninety three that Bigalow the best head. He's a big hit. He did have the best head. Swelled documented is gonna team with ahead drinkers to face the talk in the smoking guns. The mass gets two and three quarter stars ago. Eleven minutes and fifteen seconds Yeah losing effort here next up big loss kind of floating around the mid card. But unfortunately it's about to get worse. I was going to transition to a feud with knowing what will lead to one of the all time classic awful matches at survivor series. But before we get there don't versus bigalow. Who had more fun with this. You events well. I didn't have fun with this. I had fun with matt osborne. Doing and You know bam bam didn't like matt for whatever reason an in matt was battling his demons at that time to the point that we had to let go and it was right in the middle of this you know whole bam bam angle and obama. Says i've got a guy. I've got a guy that you put them in the doing suit goint You'll never know the difference. And he's a better worker matt born and it was his friend. His name i think was ray apollo And ray super guy just did not have the innate charisma matt borne by any stretch of the imagination. the more we tried this we brought dink in Who was tiger jackson for montreal to be as side kick Everything we tried it. Just it wasn't you know. Matt born may deutsche. Bank matt born is join. Ke- was hot. Young people laugh but but when they talk about the the shitty joint is. This is the era of the shitty. It wasn't mad and to me. it wasn't doing. It was the replacement drink. And i don't think that he was half the talent or matt born and had you had matt born in the same situation people be talking about holy shit. This was insane well. Survivor series bruce. The last paper of you in the boston garden. It's promoted as bigalow the head shrinkers and bastion booger against four door links. And the four doing our men on a mission and the bush-whackers that's right. The ford winks turned out to be minimum mission and bush-whackers. And even they beat bam bam bigelow bashing bugger hands airwave. Just come all bruce. Come home bruce. Come home berms. Come on bruce come home brings used to come to. Our shows often have oscar.

"Wrestle. Who else would have been working with town. I mean i know you're fresh so you're sort of. I think he laid out on the show in the past. You are really doing a little bit of everything. Weren't necessarily doing only this only that you're all over the place anyway. Who would have been working with talent. Would've just been agents at the shows. And who do you think that cast and crew may have looked like in in nineteen eighty seven the agents chief jay strongbow stoning rios pat patterson monsoon guys like that would work for towel We could basis at the house shows so the agents that were in the house shows were able to work with him every night and pata. Tv but it was moored at that time that we put guys on the house shows to go out and see how the audience is reacting to them. Before you'd ever get on television and then get a feel for what they do what they are and Ideas as to what to do with them from there then make every tv and work from their company. Through what sort of transition you think a wrestler would need to make in order to be ready for the prom and the wwf really at the height of the golden era here and the the shadow of wrestlemainia three. There's more people watching wwf programming than ever before Your network or syndicated network continues to grow by leaps and bounds. You've got prime time specials. You've got late night specials. You've got a lot of really great stuff on the horizon. Not just on cable but on broadcast television. And now you're taking these talent and this one in particular what he's two years in the business less than that and now he's going to be part of this roster and sure he may have some of the the quote unquote moves down and he might understand basic match structure. He learned all that in wrestling school and through doing matches across the country and even in japan but now he's got a really turn the volume up and be a personality that's larger than life and he's he's a relatively young man here. What what did that process look like because it feels a little overwhelming when you put it in context like that i think it probably was overwhelming obama. You know he'd been used to kinda being out on his own in really is only mentor. Being larry sharpe who think that larry probably fit into his head. Don't trust anybody just more than more than anything. A attitude of distrust think with with all promoters in anybody in the business. Wasn't larry so i think bam bam kind of had that in his head without any validation to anybody early scott have been in the in the business that long to have that kind of feeling or or to feel that way Exclusives own endeavors so no bam bam coming in it was. It was a pretty raw lump clay. You could mold with some decent foundation and some some pretty good skills. You know. We've heard over the years that While the wwf as the land of the giants and advance has an affinity for larger than life characters. And we've even heard an explanation. You know what do they look like in an airport. Do they turn heads in an airport. Everyone wrestling fan or not paying attention to that person. And that could be based on size or star value or natural charisma. Whatever they have some sort of magnetism about that did vince see that in bam bam and would he have seen it without the head tat. I don't know if you wanna see without the head tattoo. And i don't know that bam bam would have had the same swagger without the head tattoo. Frankly i think that that that it all kind of came together in a in a neat package in the tattooed probably gay bam bam some of that swagger in some of that strategy had naturally it is interesting to go back and think about what. If i mean in this era we should also mention. You've told us before that you guys guys were really looking for. Its baby territory. So there's a lot of other territories in the country that they wanted to have a heel champion and all the baby faces chase benson and even his father preferred a baby face champion taking on all comers a guy like bruno san martino and now it's whole cogan. Stern would you see a guy like bam bam bigelow at his height his weight and his agility but then as if that isn't enough the crazy head tat be just think. Oh man we sharpen that guy up and he'll be perfect for hogan on a saturday nights main event or whatever you're looking primarily for not necessarily your next hogan but who can hogan's next opponent be fair to say it is but but in bam bam in particular we were looking at you know holy shit. What an attraction. He can be sudan. Did you maybe face. Oh we didn't see him. Okay aren't that didn't see him as a heel saw him as a huge baby face okay. Storyline begins july twentieth on prime time wrestling. Where bobby heenan is doing commentary. And he claims to have signed bam and then jimmy hart in an insert during a honky tonk man match claims to have signed bam bam and then mr fuji during a demolition match the next week we would see he signed bam bam and then johnny v does the same routine during an islanders match and in fact slick molin been reading the dirt sheets it's a nice storyline versus if you just pay for a little bit. Why it's a nice way to say. Hey all the heels wanna manage this guy and that just really lays out really a different time in wrestling. It felt like every major. He'll.

"Come on dude. It sounds like brian. It's like if it was. Billy wack me off was on you. Don't really see is a hell of hand net seghal something russell with bill. Yak me off. So listen we're going to talk about something that is really data here but bam bam even wins rookie of the year. Just the one. As far as i know my brother. Tom won rookie of the year. I think three times three years in a row. Wow that's impressive those guy. He used to wrestle at w. wild side will him sour naro and he's still with nwea. Anyway i saw him years ago as the two-time rookie of the year thought. It was the fucking coolest gimmick ever in here your brother had was. He promoting himself as a three-time rookie of the year. No no it's just every territory. He went to this young rookie. Tommy pritchard as cowboy. Tommy richard out in california because everybody comes from texas got a cowboy and when he got there they said hey you got you got hats chaps ligament just everybody game texas always carried a hat and chaps in their in their bag. Let me get one yellow or blue What the fuck. But yeah tom. Everywhere he'd go y'all jong and so they'd make you ma this young rookie. They'd have their own local rookie of the year. Do you know the beat him. Al rookie of the year in pwi and his actual real rookie. Year okay terry. Tenant was rookie of the year. And tom was runner up. You've bus tom's balls about that. No because he was a three time. Rookie of the year cockatiel guy was only once it's not enough to Get booked over in new japan pro wrestling in january of eighty seven. So just to recap the is like sixteen months in the business and already booked by new japan. That's a pretty big damn deal. Is it because they had so much success with the other american wrestlers because of his size. What's not at a fetish for the big guys to to bring in bring in a big nasty looking. He'll for not to be so. Yeah like not like that. That style that type of Of talent well. He's only there for like four or five months before. He debuts with the world wrestling federation may twenty six nineteen ninety seven in asbury park new jersey and He's gonna debut in his home state and in the town that he's announced from his whole career. Pretty cool little deal. Do you remember his first match or or him coming in or that all came to be. Yeah i i remember. He came in in was very bland warlike black short shorts and then the top the he wore pretty much for for his career almost like a butcher top but cut a little bit more of his body and For be as big as he was and from the neck up is full as he was. it didn't match. You know it was. It was very bland kind of blah in it will blah enough to almost take away his uniqueness because then he just became a heavy dude that happened to be bald with a tattoo on his head was nothing special about him. That made him stand out and So then you know we looked at okay. What what can we do to color him up and to make him stand out in a in a land of giants he was a big guy but he's a big guy that has extraordinary talents in could do an awful lot for a big man thing down. Hello yes we're talking about your ding.

"You know how do you differentiate heard. We've heard the advice of of quote unquote veterans a lot in wrestling. Who would say. Oh he's doing all this stupid shit. It just needs to be a big man just giant wrestle giant giant but then you see a golic. This breakout all kinds of crazy stuff and fans seemed to really dig it. What's up with that. Where's the line where this guy should. But that gosh it. And i think it depends on ability is whether or not they can do it when you see a big guy do it. All the time it becomes commonplace doesn't matter it's not special right if they break out every now and then in makes it unique and it makes you a wall if you do an amazing maneuver over and over and over again you get used to and becomes a spot instead of spectacle. Well it is a spectacle to see bam bam bigelow. He's gonna make his way down to memphis and the cw is going to be pushed. Pretty high up the card and even worker program with jerry lawler and that's actually the first time or the first thing of his i've seen is like a highlight tape. They made down by played on tv. That was really pretty cool especially for the time. Did you see any of his memphis stuff at all. Probably saw little bit of it but not not enough to really really matter. I guess more than anything. I probably saw little bit of it again for some are really saw. Much of his stuff was was out of dallas Do you know the whole story on how he got the flames on his head. Because that's obviously the thing that people still remember the most but you. I've never talked about how we're win. That came about soon. It probably would have come up at some point. I wasn't there. I don't know what there were asked him. I don't know i never asked. Never ever asked him. Do you know no asking me. I don't know if he got it. He was in that mexican prison.

"For by nitsa. We'll get there. I want to mention When later bam bam was interviewed about why he got into professional wrestling. He says quote. There wasn't much else. I was qualified for as you mentioned. He was From larry sharps monster factory considered the prostitute and at the time. And actually debuts has his very first debut wrestling match it studio fifty four august twenty third nineteen eighty five and this show is probably most famous because this is really the first promotional effort of paul. Heyman Who once upon a time was trying to make his way in that business. And i think provided photography services and things like that but he's gonna throw his head into the ring as a promoter any books ric flair for an appearance and the debut. Match of bam bam bigelow. Have you ever heard anything about that. Show or that event or how it came to be. Do you ever talk to paul bam bam about that. Yeah i talked to. Paul bowden will us kind of first foray into doing something in. It was more the nightclub scene in new york. And paul you always look into brinson guys and i think flair was the big attraction at that time to be able to bring rick in for this event but rick was working or anything like that. So yeah it was was Just a stunt more than anything for the nightclubs to be able to to put on it event. Hey come see wrestling. We're going to have live professional wrestling at fifty four which was pretty cool concept at the time you know that hadn't been done. It was a different way to get exposure in pretty smart on polly's part Larry sharpe's monster factory would go on. Produce quite a bit of talent Guys like big show an even someone more recently. Matt riddle think went through the monster factory. Of course these days ran by mr cage as opposed to Larry shar but the legacy the monster fa- monster factory lives on bruce. Yeah it does it. And i you know i don't mean to kinda a poo poo on the monster factory and larry sharp But it did not always have the best reputation in the world it was it was looked at in a lot of ways as I don't want to say a scam either. But a scheme if if you will that. Larry took people's money that that had no real aptitude for wrestling. Yeah and had that reputation. And then. After that larry would tie himself to people like bam bam to take percentage of whatever they they got and things like that after training and it wasn't always the most it just wasn't always the best reputations if he came out of the monster factory In those days people kind of looked at you sideways. 'cause i don't know that larry had at the best reputation the business and i i can only speak for myself dean alert sharp through the years in the larry was always straight up with me. Couldn't have been a nicer guy. And at least never gave me any reason to think that I never thought of him as a bad guy. I thought wow you know you hear the rumors and you hear the innuendo when all that good shit. So you're a little trepidation in dealing with him. But i found in my dealings with him at least one which they're worn a lot but larry was always pretty straight up in a in a straightforward guys. Never i never understood where that came from other than maybe some timers hung around with didn't have a high opinion of it In the whole time himself guys that made a big and trying to take points out of their out of whatever they got so on the heels of that like it's worth mentioning that think. Danny kaye is owned it for ten years now. Not larry sharpe. Do you know danny. Have you met him before. I met him. One time nice guy met him in a seminar incentive. Talk with my brother and nice guy but other than hey how you doing and having dinner with one night. I don't really know. Danny i guess what. I'm trying to say as he doesn't have this negative reputation that precedes him. That perhaps maybe no larry sharp mid once upon a time. No and i think that the the negative will was probably based more in guys that had worked with larry over the years and maybe just in lichen because the only actual people will be locked. I don't think watts. At high opinion of larry but The milwaukee anybody. Besides jim ross. Good point yeah so you gotta look at the people that he liked the new judgment that way in wealth there you go But also you don't like strongbow and people like that up in the northeast. Didn't didn't really have good things to say about larry. Vince was always realized. Larry never had a problem with larry. Being around and things like that So again i can. Only i can. I can say from my experience larry. It was i never had a bad experience with larry. But it was whatever you would say. sharp skies people go. Oh boy swum time. That's not what they're saying these days don't want to bury guys current business so roll tide. Danny cage yeah. No no i mean it was it was it was more larry not necessarily the other thing and i. I have no idea other than you know. I can speak to to matt riddle. And those guys are worked with matt and emil w. and Great guy obviously but but my point is is that whoever trade mad i think pretty good job. Let's jump into it People are really taking notice obam mostly because of his size and then you stick around for the tattoos. But he's six foot four three hundred ninety pounds but probably most notable for how agile he was. I mean he could do some at the time. Relatively high risk maneuvers. What was the first time you saw. Bam bam breakout some of that fantastic stuff that you wouldn't expect a man his size to be able to perform i would. I would say probably in in world class in dallas was the first time that i took notice. I'd seen bam bam a one of those. Whether was access hollywood. Or they want access hollywood but it was one of those type of shows. The did a feature on The monster factory in saw bam bam because he was a unique cat so people were looking people were looking at him because of the way that he looked in his size. Obey babylon work. Like a three hundred fifty pound rambam work like a two hundred pounder in could do some really amazing things had tremendous agility for.

"Berry bar. Yeah what can you tell us about the monster factory. The monster factor back in the day was probably the only at least to my knowledge was was really the only commercial school that got any kind of publicity. That was actually out there I don't want to say advertising but but but looking for looking for students in inactivity advertising if you will and just getting the buzz out there for people and it was kind of the go-to if you wanted to be a wrestler because there weren't a lot of wrestling schools were publicly known in the monster. Factory was something that was you know it got featured on different shows where hey you know. You want to be a wrestler. Well there's a place you can go. It's the monster factory in wherever the fuck new jersey. And they do personality. Lehrer sharp was a character ban. Larry larry pumped mountain had a reputation for Finding big guys and unique characters. If you will that would come through there and slur was kind of a goatee guy if you were looking for An extra in a movie and things like that of a big nasty rustler shit like that. So you'd go. Larry sharpe said hey you got anybody. That's training with your you've seen ask. How often would you do that. That's something you will reach out for. Who will i'm saying in general like the movie and television types. We're looking for extras and things like that. Larry kind of had that reputation because he had a had schooled people knew about it was like hey will maybe can find a wrestler. And out here there's a guy jersey's got wrestling school that Notoriously pops out big guys will chat me up about from the wbf's perspective. When you were there. And i realized that he's actually going to pop up before you do but So you're involved in that. But did you guys wanted to what recruiting bam bam bigelow to the wwf. He wasn't before i was.

Somebody who wasn't necessarily on the territory's yet well we didn't in bam bam had actually worked texas. He'd worked dallas for fritz in the world class territory and there was a point in time that bam bam was allegedly going to be coming in for bill watts in Uw wf midsouth. So i don't know how serious lows talks. I know that He was on the radar at least for watts because he had been working in dallas anymore. The black all black of gear and shit like that and the only thing colorful about him was his head in the the flames tattooed on his head. You're hanging out with france and putting back a few drinks and a few becomes a few too many as the evening comes to an end when people start to head out. You think of calling for rod you live nearby. You can make it home okay. It's no big deal..

Ellie Kempton, MSN, RDN On Preparing for Race Day With Taper Nutrition

"I know from being an athlete for so long and really been given so much advice from so many who loved me and wanted me to do well. I think my purpose as well as to cut pass the noise and get right down to the signal of just the simple few things to focus on so it will be eye candy when you look at this little roadmap because there's only three things to think about two weeks out and the first one is actually maybe let's go back to play the most playful one. I'm going to ask you to play with foods. That are robust. Just busting at the seams with vitamin c. Why bet well. Here's the deal. I don't know about you. But i know when i put a lot of pressure on myself in the past and i'm heading into my final week of taper. I start to feel a little scratch in the back of my throat starts to feel little congestion. I feel super fatigued and bam. I'm sick with a cold. So i am proactively. Giving your body by asking you to eat foods rich in vitamin c and giving your body a little bit extra defense. I'm helping it out by giving it some protection because vitamin c is really good at fighting some of the oxidative stress that comes from your body repairing itself. I mean it takes work. That's probably why you feel. It's why you feel a little bit of fatigue going into tapers your body's pairing itself and if it doesn't have some of the protection it needs it falls prey to whatever you come in contact with. It's it's a have a natural response to get sick when you are repairing absolutely one so we're talking everything from citrus fruits. Two peppers strawberries. But you also say you could also supplement. I mean and what is that a good idea for everybody or is it district people who don't like fruits and vegetables. Can you get enough vitamin c. It's more or less your personality type right like. Do you want to commit to eating some of the vitamin rich or vitamin c rich foods consistently every day. Or do you just want to cover your basis with a little bit of an insurance policy. My personality type. I'm all about the food. But i also wanna just know that i got at least a thousand milligrams right so i will pop a few vitamin c. packets in my bag for work and just make sure i grabbed one a day and it just bolsters my defense before. I even feel anything coming on.

Surefire Reasons to Switch Tables

Surefire Reasons to Switch Tables

"Sites. They make switching table super easy just in an effort to make their recreational players comfortable but in this episode. I'm about to give you six reasons to switch tables now. The ultimate idea here behind switching tables is in switching tables. You can also call it table selection right you want to make poker easier for yourself and at the same time you make poker difficult for others so if you don't already know how to switch tables on whatever site that you play on go ahead and pop open the browser jump on the table and then try to switch. I mean you could figure it out for yourself. How easier difficult. It is for ignition poker. The site that i play on all i do is closed my current table. When i don't wanna play there anymore. Go to the lobby. Hit new table or jump on new table. Get new table. Whatever the button is right there. Select my buying and bam. It puts me on a brand new table. Super simple on ignition poker. Alright so let's talk about reason number one and that's to find the fish so if you're playing on a six max table and you do not have on an anonymous site by the way if you do not have two or more fish at the table You've got to switch if you're at a full ring table and you don't have four or more fish you have to switch. So how do you know that somebody is a fish. Will you look around the table. And you see a lot of short stacks you also see lots of pre flop limping pre flop calling and pre flop blind defense. You also want to see that. There is not a lot of three bits or three bet squeezes as well because that indicates the more aggressive and maybe competent players. You also want to see lots of post flop folding or calling or little in no raising at all and ultimately at the end at showdown you want to see that your opponents had super crappy hands that they like. I guess technically good strategy wise should not have even join the hand with and of course the less tight aggressive and loose aggressive players are at your table the more fish you get to yourself all right speaking of the lags and tags right that brings us to reason number two to switch tables and that's to avoid the loose aggressive players on your left. Those lags they love to use aggression against you right. They they make poker tough by three bedding after you open race by calling you in the best position and they bet as soon as you check post flop or once you make that sieben on the flop if they know. That's the spot where you like to do a lot of bluffing. That's when they're going to raise you right or they're going to call the flop every single time just to bet when you check on the turn they make poker tough because they have position against you once again you want to make poker difficult for others not allow them to make it difficult for you so get off of those tables when you have lax to your direct left now going on with that idea. Is reason number. Three to switch tables is that you want to be the one exploiting you want to be the one with position on your smart opponents the competent opponents and you want to be the one turning the screws to them so it's okay if at your table there's a couple of lags or tags tight aggressive players. But they've got to be on your right. That way can be the one using position against them which makes their lives difficult. They're going to hate playing because you the strong competent dude or chick is on their left. Right you're the one using the aggressive plays against them. Now when i say aggressive plays what kind of plays are those. I mentioned some of them. In the prior reason number two but three bedding and three bet squeezing our great aggressive place to use against tags and lags also calling pre flop in order to bet when they check post flop generally c- betting from in position against these players who call out of the blinds against you and then raising their seabed bluffs especially when that bore doesn't hit their range when you know that they are capable of flop bluff see bedding but that board is like a jack eight four. Oh kind of a dry board. Won't rainbow jacket four rainbow board. That's a great one to be raising versus their half pot out of position. Seem it

The 'Superfluid' States Of Matter

"Science concepts. We're going to unpack. Today is states of matter. You know some of those other states of matter. You didn't learn about in science class right. So the physicist. I called up to explain. This is martin's veer line at mit. And what. i find hilarious pout. Martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to my son. I'm like oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would guess by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we build bridges. And we're very excited about that. Actually that was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water up. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. Two molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor aka humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself like that. Water exists in these three different states. And that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing. We can only do so much in our kitchen speakers there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond

Turn Your Poker Weak Points Into Strong Points

"Here are the three things that you must do. And this is what. I learned from arnold. You must do these three things to turn weak points into strong points in all dive into each one but let me give you all three right now. Number one is do not hide from your weak points. Number two is to focus on your weak points and number three is to use the priority principle. Let's get into each of those. So i do not hide from your weak points. You have to realize that you have some poker weak points everyone does. I've got plenty of. Let me tell you you are going to become a stronger player by facing your weaknesses and working to overcome them. Hiding from your weaknesses will not help you become the player that you want to be. I guarantee i recently wrote an article on card player. Lifestyle dot com and the articles called know your areas of weakness and you can find a link to it in the show notes page now in the article. I discussed two ways to learn about your weaknesses. One is to spot those situations where you're just unsure or uncomfortable obvious weakness there right and the second is to use a program like poker tracker four review your stats your win rate's on a regular basis and those are going to tell you where you need to work on your game right but other than those two things another way to find your weaknesses is to listen to your poker friends right. We started this episode talking about a friends. Don't let friends skip leg day. Well if you have poker franson they pay attention to your game and if they say something to you about your weaknesses you gotta listen up take note on it and follow up on it see if it really is a weakness and if so bam worked to turn it into a strong point so to borrow that line from earlier right poker friends. Don't let friends skip study sessions. They don't let friends limp into pots. That's a big thing. They don't let their friends call more often than raise pre flop. They don't let their friends call three bets with crappy hands also poker friends. Don't let friends defend their blinds just because it suited and poker friends. Don't let friends call on the river when they know they're beat so maybe you don't have any poker friends who can point out your weaknesses. Well if you read a poker article. Listen to a podcast. Watch a video and it discusses strategies and you just can't wrap your mind around it bam probably a weak point of yours the fact that you cannot understand these strategies this person is talking about. You need a dive in a little bit further into it right. Lastly listen to your coach. I'm your coach right now. I just told you to stop limping. Why do you keep limping. You gotta frigging. Listen to your coach. If they're telling you to do something do it.

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

"The court so which advantages Enjoy against the nuggets and will they translate against the heat? So. When I look at the Lakers I do think that you have to look at just the supporting cast and whether or not certain guys are going I. think it's really. I think. Our players like Rondo going to step up Caruso going to hit his open threes says Danny Green going to be able to defend ball handler and not like a turnstile and down spot up three's case ep going to be able to run the floor finish in transition press the ball ninety, four feet and. Impact the game in transition and hit open threes The way that he did in the finals I think that those are key factors i. Honestly. I know that you know everyone has been listening to. US throughout this entire playoff run we'll say that I've you know doubted the Lakers? I guess you could put it mildly that'd be a mild description of how I felt about them. You picked again against them at every turn. Michael And I think a huge part of that is. The supporting cast and the my trepidation to believe that they could generate enough offense and a half court setting and so far. They haven't really needed to generate offense and a half court setting. I think against Miami which is like I think Miami. Is the first real defense No disrespect to. actually, I guess all the disrespect to the rockets blazers. With this movement Michael 'cause I've been saying that for a long time no disrespect but disrespect I think that should just enter the lexicon. Let's not be afraid to disrespect every once in a while well, Denver you know I thought that their defense way earlier in the season two million years ago was getting to be at a near championship level because of their cohesion but like they just broke down on the first couple of rounds and they had good moments here and there and stretches but. Their defense is just in no way comparable to Miami's in my opinion after watching Miami's defense just I mean. The show like the individual pieces in Miami you have Jimmy who is excellent and he kind of poses an issue for Lebron. Lebron hasn't had to combat so far. you have Bam obviously who you know I would honestly not surprised at all. If Bam ended up on Lebron and a lot of possessions in this series because you would presume that I think that the Lakers will have to downsize eventually if not right away. Honestly. and. You would assume that Bam will be the one who's guarding Anthony Davis and I think that they will switch that pick and roll Lebron, AD. Pick and roll quite a bit i. don't even know if the Lakers will be able to go to it that often because of how often they'll switch and Bam can guard anybody in the world. He's absolutely incredible if I had to pick who's going to win defensive player of the year next year our pick Bam at a bio he's..

"You don't want to sell low right. So right there's still more upset with him but can find player who accentuates their team better and I don't know about the long term just because you know all these picks that they've had of kind of they've used them pretty well. They. Almost had too many picks last year I mean you had the roster rallies rookies some of it worked out some it didn't. During shape and I think that they're smart group and they'll figure it out. But I, but I don't think it's like a for sure thing that Boston is going to be in the east finals like every single year like I'm not ready to say that, right? That's interesting. I will say I don't think either of us are low on Jalen Brown as a player in his own individual context I agree with you know it is more so about the fit with tatum and any talk about looking into what he could be worse on trademark it. You know the Celtics are forward thinking for an office like they're going to put everything on the table. That's interesting. I I. Don't know I think I would push back on that just a little bit only because we've seen tatum Brown or in two conference finals already now. I, think they just have the flexibility to build around them properly when we celebrated this year with the first year bringing Kemba in of probably someone out the front court when you know that Horford thing kind of took them by surprise I think they'll have an opportunity to flood the front court better in the future so. That'll be interesting. I I'm surprised you have that perspective but I guess I'm I'm on a different page of the there I do I do want to get to a little bit of finals talk I the storylines a rich here. What's it's not just against the Brown. It's Wilkins Frank Vogel was supposedly Frank Mobile in the plows before it's Pat Riley facing the organization our he became famous as the head coach of the Lakers in the eighties. At first blush I'm curious what you think about this. I almost wonder if WHO's Lakers to play big just to get Bam off of. Eighty. Yeah it's a good question I. think like you know if you had to design someone to guard Davis, you know Bam would be a pretty good choice, right? And I. Think it just goes back to. You know how will how much zone or that he can show?.
