"batum" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane

"A lot worse if plumlee is your backup pick. That's for sure. Yeah, if he's your backup, you're probably a really good show. Yeah. You know, I think he gets beat up on a lot 'cause he's not a very good defender. But he can rebound. His finishing is good around the room. Can't you free throws or worth a crap? I think he was 39% for the season, which is pretty horrible. But he's a pretty good passer too. He's a guy you can run some stuff through. It's funny, one of the things that we're talking a lot about over on Celtics blog is what a targets for the team. And he's a guy I've said, you know, we have horse even worse. If that was the way you used it, one of the TPs was to go get mason plumlee. Not the end of the world. That'd be okay as a backup big. You know, he fits in because you can run some of the offense through him and do ask him to do some of the same stuff you ask the other guys to do, but yeah, he's a little overmatched as a starter, but he had under 9.1 million. That's good high end backup money and I don't think it's a problem. Yeah, I don't think so. I think you're fine there. And again, only one more year on the contract. And that's important when we talk about a guy like him. Like, it's not like you're committing long-term salary. Staying with Charlotte, the hornets are looking at Gordon Hayward trade Keith. I know you had the same initial thought about this that I had about the Deandre ayton news about the sun's trying to get the 8th pick and the draft and move off of salary. Like a Cameron Johnson in order to free up a little bit of room for Deandre sons don't have to do that. That's just being cheap. You had the same reaction to the Charlotte hornets looking to move Gordon Hayward and perhaps attaching a first round picked him in order to do so. They don't have to do that. And I'm sorry, I missed the key point there, was in order to sign an extension with miles bridges. That's not a qualifier for signing an extension with miles bridge. They could sign it without doing any of that. No problem. It's just, it just costs a little bit more money. Yeah, they have his full bird rights. It's just going to cost some money. The other thing that's the sun's one is bothersome because you're a title contender. So you should be willing to go into the tax. The hornets I get it, they're like, hey, we don't want to pay the tax because we're not sure this team is that level of good. They could do this without paying the tax, too. And that's what's really annoying to me. It's like you're now getting cheap when there's no reason to get cheap. Yeah, if you could get off Gordon Hayward steel at the expense of the 13th or 15th pick, fine, like at all. I mean, great, more power to you. You know, I mean, at this point, the challenge did it's really unfortunate it is. When Gordon Hayward plays, he's actually pretty good. You know, he can shoot, can pass, dribble, he can do a lot of different things for you. Problem is the only place about 50 games a year. Yeah. That's not worth $30 million. It just isn't. That's too much to be paying. And that was the problem when the hornets swooped in and kind of blew up anything Boston in Indiana had going on or just Boston. And I said this just yesterday. This is why this I'll fix you sitting at $100 million over four years. That's our top end for Hayward. I locking in at that number. That was huge because that will match the one 20. That's franchise crippling. And on top of that, remember the hornets did a waving stretch with Nicholas batum. And we're going to get to in a minute in order to do this. So in reality, I'm like 40. Yeah, you were paying them almost 40 million. That's what your actual cost was to have him on your roster because what you had to do in order to get the room to sign him, we questioned that at the time. And now there's a lot of money. Now, to not only pay him that much to now have to potentially just burn a future asset up first round pick in order to move that salary off. It's not great. If you have to do what you do it, but I don't want to hear people saying, well, you had to do it because that's the only way you could resign. Miles purchase because it's absolutely not true. Then if that's the case, just be honest and say, we don't want to pay the tax, which I will have far more respect. For a team that is honest and just as we don't want to pay the tax, then a team that then makes up all these other things about this is why we really had to do these moves. Now, just tell the truth. Yeah, yeah, you don't need to spin it. We can see through that. Yes. Very easily sometimes. All right. Nicholas batum, opts out 3 million in change, would have been his contract for this year. Not a surprise at all. We've talked about supply and demand on the wing market. Demand is high, supply is very low. PJ Tucker doing the same thing here. And again, I think even if they weren't in that environment where supply is low and demand is high for wings, I still think that's an underpay for Nicholas platoon, but given just the reality of this specific market this year, it's a no brainer for him to opt out and see what's out there. Now, I do think he probably stays with the Clippers, but we've already heard a number of teams that have been connected with him or at least would be interested in him. Keith, I know you have the full list, but off the top of my head, it's the Lakers, the clippers, of course, the jazz, the sons, who else was in there. I know I'm leaving. Old in the Celtics. Bulls in the south. You know, it's from cursing. Shopify is the all in one commerce platform to start, run, and grow your business.

"We have an early train to announce I said it's just a little appetizer. I love it. Utah is trading for jaw rap. The Memphis zoo's giraffe that they named after John morant. I love it. That's amazing. Memphis, why are you doing this? Don't trade job. Don't even trade John raff. I love it. That's my new favorite thing. That has happened. Ja rap on his way to Utah. I do not think this is an indication that the jazz are going to get John Moran, but nevertheless, I think it's a big addition for you to for you, and zoological interest. Did you hear that? How do you think there was the sound of people unsubscribing? I wasn't trying to fake anybody out or whatever that's just on hand. It's a little appetizer again because I think we're going to get to use that drop quite a bit. 26, 27 hours or something like that. By the way, make sure you do follow us. And subscribe because we are going to go live during the draft tomorrow. We're going to be we're going to be breaking everything down. So come join us and watch the draft with us. It's going to be a blast. It's going to be right here on the NBA front office. YouTube channel. I can't wait, Keith. I can't wait to go through the draft with you. Yeah, I'm super excited. I think we're going to have a blast going through it. Full disclosure, it's going to be the first round, probably only and we'll do a little bit of recap. And then Friday, it won't be live. But Trevor and I are going to carve out time. We are going to do a full 30 team recap to say what teams did, didn't do, so that'll be a very long show, whether you're watching it on YouTube or you listen to the podcast version, but I'll give you a good long show to get you into the weekend and I get you off and to next week when all the madness starts with your agency. So we're excited. This is going to be a fun couple of days. All right, well let's get into our first news item of the day. James Harden, opting in. And we talked about this a little bit the other day, but now it's sounding more certain that James Harden will actually opt in, which is not what we thought a few weeks ago. This is the situation has shifted. James Harden opting in and probably going to sign a shorter term contract, which again, we've talked about this. I think it's massive for the 76ers in terms of protecting themselves in this situation with a James Harden that frankly was probably not at the peak of his powers at the end of this last season. Yeah, absolutely. We will get to the full shooting guard rankings if you're interested. I have my shooting guard rankings. I've posted on spot tracks already can go take a look at those are the same Trevor and I will break down just it's not going to be today or tomorrow because we'll be draft focused, but at the beginning part of next week we'll get into all those. But yeah, I mean, he's still the best free agent for my money available. This summer, even with the slippage in play, but I get why they don't want to do the 5 years. They don't want to do $60 million when he's 37, at the end, and all that stuff. So yeah, and this is also we're starting to see, again, a slightly different way, but the power of the extension in how much that can do for players, right? It's not the way it used to be. Normally we see it keeping guys out of free agency. Now this is a slightly different way, but same end result. He's going to opt in and sign an extension and it sounds like probably a three year deal. There's even some reporting that it may be slightly less than the max, which I would be huge for Philly just for a little bit of wiggle room to give them, you know, maybe get some in range of doing the non taxpayer mid level in a couple of years that players over the next couple of seasons, which would be big for them. But yeah, Matt, pretty big news. It's kind of all over the place now too. We've seen a reported out of Philly, we subject Fisher, and we saw mode kind of jump in on it earlier today as well. So I think once you start here and from a whole bunch of places, you can start to feel a lot better about running with it. All right, let's stay with the 76ers. And let's talk about PJ Tucker. We talked about yesterday that PJ Tucker was opting out of his contract 7 million and change with the Miami Heat is now going to hit the market. And now we're here in the 76ers, could very well be the landing spot for him and that they're willing to go three years on a deal. Now again, not all three year contracts are the same. You could have non guaranteed portion of that. It could be a team option. Some different things that could be mixed in there. But three years, mid level exception, full mid level exception deal potentially for 37 year old player, I know the win wing market is then we're going to talk about Nicholas batum in a few minutes here. The wing market extremely thin this off season PJ Tucker. He's a winner. He's proven. I understand the appeal, but the age makes me a little bit concerned for the 76ers here if they're doing a full, if it's a fully guaranteed three year contract. Yeah, my guess is there will be some something in there at the end that doesn't leave us in that position. But yeah, it is definitely, it makes sense for them though and my assumption would be something like maxi, Hardin, Harris, Tucker, and embiid would be your starting group, Tucker, obviously, had a lot of success playing with James Harden in the past. If you're going to have hardened, you're going to have those other four guys, your 5th guy basically needs to be somebody who can hit open jump shots and play defense in PJ Tucker can do that for you. We saw him do some stuff. And he's not, he's not going to switch out in the fed and the speediest perimeter guys. Any more he just doesn't have that in him, but Danny forward in the league and he big in the league. He can definitely hold his own. I've said in the past, so he's trying to post him up like trying to post up a fire hydrant. Like you're just not going to move him. He's just going to lock his base and that's it. Maybe you'll shoot over him and that may happen, but you're going to have to work to get that look. So yeah, this one makes sense. I still think he's sticks with the heat. That's still is a one I think that happens, but yeah, we'll see. Do you think the heat match that contract though? Well, they could because they should have an offering to use the full non taxpayer because that's the challenge they're limited if they use as non bird. 8.4 million, but that might be one two where he says, you know, I don't need to match the years. I don't necessarily need you to match. Well, they can't match the years yet, but that could be one of those where it's like, hey, we'll do another one plus one, opt out next year, and then we got you on the back end, we'll take care of you kind of what we think might be happening with Bobby portis. And Milwaukee, so we'll see. But yeah, I tend to think Miami wants to keep him around because they don't have anything resembling a four on that roster without him. Well, given his sneaker habit, I have a feeling that the dollar amount may matter. But somebody did the math and added up the value of the shoes that he wore throughout the playoff run for the Miami Heat. And it was something I don't remember it off top of my head, but it was something astronomical where you went unbelievable. He's got an impressive collection. Yeah. Yeah, he was the folks that I know from my former career with Disney, who were working at the bubble, where that was a topic of conversation where everybody's like, this one guy. They're not NBA heads, so they were like, but this one player brought like 300 pairs of sneakers for like, you know, the whole time he was in the bubble. So real. Unreal. Yeah. I have won Paris sneakers. And then one kind of nicer para seekers. That's me as well. That's how I roll. But we're old. And then Nike had to be fair. I wear Nikes. I'm not wearing the new balance dad shoes yet yet. No, I'm not quite there yet either. I'm not far off though. Yeah. No, me either. With Velcro too..

"Well, the reason why I thought labelling was going to be so good was because he's he's only pick-and-roll player. Right? Right and lomelo shown that so far. Yeah. So the same thing about Trayvon like Trae young elite-level passer from day one in the NBA zacurate off Cooper has a lot of those same properties, but he's very small and it's very difficult to play at that size in the NBA. If you can't shoot having like I would take him at like 80 off. In this draft 15 something like that. Like I wouldn't I don't know. It's like I might even take him higher I might take him at like 10. I think that's where penny and I ended up with them was like right around like 10:00 or 11:00 on the mock draft of cast. That's interesting cuz Ron Harper. So hi Ron Harper Jr. I like him. I mean I wrote about him early in the season. What do you think the minimum wage teacher? That's not a name. I know this is where you being older than me. Oh, that's right. I'm forty. I'm sorry. This is long. Are you you're going to be able to just like throw out names at me and I'm going to be like, yeah. Look, I was born in ninety. Oh my God. Were you really born in nineteen? Ninety born in nineteen? Ninety. I'm Thirty like not that young but like yeah Jesus Christ. I was born in 1978. Mark Carter, oh this is this is Philly. Okay. Here we go. This is this is your wheelhouse. Yes, Mark Archer was eight six six six to 245. Just one of the best under the range scores that that I've ever the that I've ever seen or been on a floor been on a basketball court with and that's that's that's awful. Ron Harper. He's she's more athletic. He's in he's in better shape. Mark didn't play in the league because not because of his skill level but because he just just just didn't get in great shape, but he's you know, he's he's a you know phenomenal score. That's that's one of the reasons why I like Ron Harper Jr. Wage. Karcher went 48th overall in the 2000 NBA draft. Yes. Love it. Love it. We're digging deep right now. But the same body type. They took his Wikipedia says team. Yeah that that's that's not true. Go. Look go. Look at it. Go. Look at the Google and go look at the Mark Archer images wage. I was just looking at those like 2:15. All right. Let me let Sky. It's got it looks more like Marcus fizer than looks 215. Yeah, you know, but yeah, he's not to 15. Oh my God, but yeah that that's that's that's that's on Harper Jr. To me. I think wrong what I don't know. I don't think Mark Archer katchoo cuz again no Mark Archer, he could shoot he now what he now the difference is while Harper's a real athlete at his size off. I go that far but he's off the ground. He gets off the ground. Yeah, but like it's not their laterally which is more important. Correct right off. That's true. Like I I it would be interesting to me to see what Ron will do. He's younger. He's not that old like he's a third-year player. I think he just turned twenty-three Ron Harper Jr. So there's still time like if he would come back would get to like six six 2:30 and have like a little bit more quickness. I think you'd probably be a first-rounder. So you want them to go back his senior year and might want him to go back. Let me look if I was I would probably tell them like Ron if you come out we will give you a two-way like a hundred percent. By the way..

"He's he's gotten way way better defensively to the page. Like he's really really good. Now. I like Jaden Springer another guy where I'm a little bit worried about the fit as much as anything, but I like how tough he is like you very clearly is super tough dog. Has athleticism that I think doesn't quite bear itself out on the court as much as it could at some point like he has do you remember like how much. Have been Mitchell from his first year wage level? Have you watched? I didn't start watching Donovan until Year too. So when Donovan was a was a freshman and he did a similar thing to Jaden where he'd take off off two feet every time he blowed up two feet jump and try to like finish up through guys and now he's like figured out okay, I have to go around guys. Like I'm six three and have a seven foot wingspan and have a great jumper but I still can't go through guys cuz I'm just not big enough Jaden needs to figure that out. If he does I'm very interested if he doesn't we'll see right. So, where are you on Shareef Coupe? Cuz all right. So, I'm sorry. I want to ask you that cuz I don't know like I'll be honest. I'm not sure. Okay, so he he's he's dead. Trae young wear in the sense that men it's going to be really really really hard for him to fend to defend anybody at the NBA level by anyone. Yep and Trae young get away with it because Thursday is 28 and he's gotta learn any his jump shot needs a lot of work. Yep, but he's a point A to point B guy and there's just not a lot of guys around. I think he's an elite ball handler and an elite live gerbil passer. Yes Elite. I don't think that you can quite have enough effectiveness at his size without at least the threat of a jumper like I think that the best you can do without the threat of the jumper it's six foot or whatever he is and not playing he's not dead foot. I mean, it's listed at 6-1. I was even going underneath you might be right that he's under six foot tall. But like there's a lot of like if Smith there to make em, like people are going to think that that's like super negative or But like no that's positive but if realize how to play at his size, we're like issues like okay, I can't shoot. I'm not gonna be able to defend but what I am is one of the fastest news in the league, I'm going to get an elite shape. That's what people don't realize about ish Smith or Smith is in better shape than everybody he can run all day and that's the kind of shape but you have to be in that size. You have to be the Energizer Bunny and issues masks maximize every strength that he has and he's still a change-of-pace point guard in the NBA, right? You can put them on the floor for 20 minutes tonight, right? So I want to like if Sharif Cooper shoots, he's going to be a starting NBA point guard like no questions in my mind if he doesn't shoe it's probably something like if Smith Finish Smith is like worth in early second-round pick. There's just not a lot of ball-handlers on his level in the world know. He's one of probably the 15 best like ball-handler livejournal passer like combinations on planet Earth agreed which is like I like people like meltdown when I say that about non NBA players, but we'll get lamelo ball. Like I said lamelo ball is one of the ten best lives were pastors like on planet Earth..

"I mean like they might be like eighth or so in the East but I don't know that we need to go as far as we need to definitely get off at an All-Star because they're in the playoffs when they're nine eleven dollars 8th currently. Yeah. I was going to say what they are not but they are nine eleven, but they have gone through Straight and one of those is on in Milwaukee. Yeah. Yeah. Do you know who won that game for them? Lamelo, holy my my guy. I'm I'm listen. I'm doing Victory laps all over the NBA. I just want to let you know that right now cuz I was the one that told you all the Mellow was going to be grown. Now, here's the thing Tony. I think that like if they got it felt like most NBA draft like public people had lamelo at number one, right? Like if she felt that way to me. I certainly had him there like I had him there like pretty clearly. I mean, I just don't get taking Anthony Edwards over him, but you know, that's the conversation for another time probably. Yeah, I'm just saying like we you know a lot of us have a mellow. Well, I guess like here's the maybe Gordon Hayward is not an All-Star. It's going to be off key is going to be in the mix though. This may be the way to put it. He'll be in the mix with Zach LaVine with I think that I probably would take Middleton like solidly over him right now and like one guy we haven't talked about is Russell Westbrook here and Russ is averaging like nineteen ninety nine again, but I don't think Russ wage. Do you think there's really a case for us to be an All-Star this year? There's no case of recipe and despite his his game against Brooklyn on Sunday night. Yeah, I mean like after that game R Us is going to be averaging off what probably twenty ten and nine something like that. That's crazy and I but know that there's a kids of his Advanced metrics or not kind they're bad wage. They're very bad and that team is 4 and 12 the way we can give a four and twelve team to All Stars and if I'm picking one of the two, I'm picking Bradley Beal. Are we giving them one off * 4 + 12 is 4 and 12. I am giving them Bradley Beal because Bradley Beal is averaging thirty-six points again. They currently have the worst record in the NBA. Yeah, I get it..

"It's Kim Johnson a lot of the time it's j Crowder. They're just spotting those guys up in the corner and then like running high ball screen stuff off with one of Devin Booker Chris Paul. Like that would be a perfect role for Harrison Barnes. He's really good defensively. He'd fit them lengthwise and give them a bit of a a bit more strength in length wage. Then what Jae Crowder does Jae Crowder suffer, obviously, and I would love to have Jae Crowder still on that roster. But like that's a that's where he would be kind of a killer I think is wrong X. Yeah, I agree completely other guy, by the way, and this is another Nic Batum all star and one that I hadn't thought about until now have you watched them? The Bulls this year. So are we talking about Lori marketing? I was going to say Otto Porter. Oh, well, we've talked I talked to you know, I've been talking about oh Puerto with a couple of my friends page so he's been really good. Yeah, like he's he's basically what he was in Washington again. Somebody should trade for me. He's going to have a nice contract next year. Yeah. I don't I don't think that you're going to overpay Otto Porter next year again, but somebody's going to overpay Otto Porter because the entire league thought the Yiannis is going to be a free agent. So everybody has caps. Yeah. It's a good point someone bite of like literally all of the legal like, oh we got cap space because you're honest is going to be a free agent and it's going back as big frenzy and guess what? Yeah, nobody's on the market. So that money's got to go to somebody. Yeah Otto Porter though has been good again. He's been good defensively even though again log This is another team in the Bulls that have no idea what they're doing defensively and I think that they actually have a reason for it because they have a new coach and the new coach is implementing a.

"Like it's ridiculous how how good how how good band and you know, so that's why I'm just like well, I mean you go from looking wash to plant being, you know, one of only two or three guys, he's the only wage He's the only he's the only guy who's in the starting lineup who started 20 games, you know, so it's it's what what's the other relation? I really think it has to be like he might of chilled for a little while knowing that he could bite his time and not like wreck his body his assist-to-turnover ratios 3.7. Yeah. No, he's being sprayed but that's insane. He has been genuinely great like it's it's bizarre. I I'm not sure I've seen someone go from guy that I thought there was a better chance, he would be cut like at the mid-season whenever they make a trade in order to shore up the wing position to own. Oh, holy shit. He might be the Clippers like fourth-best player. She might need a third. He might be the third-best player. I don't I don't get it. It's it's unlike anything I've ever seen and good for Nic Batum man. Like I'm I am here for Nic Batum turn himself into an essential piece of a playoff Contender. Now we can talk about like hey, maybe the Clippers aren't quite the 15 and 5 team that they've been so far your 16 in five if Nic Batum is your third best player. There might be a conversation to be had there. But you know what has mattered so far and they have been blowing teams out.

"MBS, where was like, oh really go Bears being played off the floor yada yada yada and that was bullshit really gaubert was Utah's best player in that series took a country mile by a million miles and he was literally the only reason that the Jazz were even competitive in some of those games last year was awful for me. It was it was actually it was actually funny because in real time I was like, wow, you know Rudy's play really well on offense. I mean Rudy's playing really well offensively, but he's really struggling against yogesh defensively and then I saw how much yolk is your visceral rated the Clippers and how many issues he was given Lakers and I was like, oh my word Rudy gobert actually played him pretty well in hindsight. I you know, I don't know what to Stats bear in in playoff situations juice. But you know all of the stats and you know regular season situations, they they really go bear defense pretty well in space or he has defended pretty well spaced and you know, maybe that's you know, when you're in the regular season and you get defending, you know, Orlando's guards one night and you know, Minnesota's guards and other night, you know, that can skew that can skew the numbers a little bit off but he was but you know, he was legitimately good in the in the Nugget Series last year was just that jokic was playing, you know all World Basketball. Yeah, just might not have realized in real time that Nikola jokic was turning into like a very clear top six player in the NBA like he's been this year. And and so I think that the discourse has a globe are especially on social media has been has has has been pretty dishonest. I think that he's had issues and 2 Series M. I think that was the 2017 Golden State series and I think that first 2018 Series against Houston first series of Houston, you know like the Oklahoma Oklahoma City series. He was amazing. But then again he was playing against Steven Adams, you know Houston spaced him out in the second round that year 2019. He was really good against Houston the Jazz just couldn't score like they couldn't score at all. But their defense was the only reason that they were even that they're even that they were even competitive and off those games. There were still a five-game Series last year. He was good against the Nuggets, you know, so he's been good in the playoffs and you know, you know, I think I think that, you know narratives are hard to to overcome, you know, but I have no reason to think that you know, I have no reason to think that go Bear Song Isn't going to be good in this postseason, but now having said that if you know at some point, you know where he's got to look at yoga. She needs gotta be like, okay. I have to figure out a way to stop this guy. And well, I have to figure out a way to generate some like it doesn't matter if if jokic goes from forty if it's a 1,000 game down the stretch and and Rudy gets to stop that matters and that's what didn't happen. And that's what didn't happen against against Denver a couple of months ago in a bubble bath. And that's what like the difficult part of this conversation. Is that the Jazz were genuinely one basket away from beating Denver in a playoff series and off hook shot from Nikola jokic doesn't fall then this is an entirely different conversation. The problem is that well, it happened on Rudy..

"He is struggling to like move a little bit more. So I think if you know, he's thirty-three and he's on the last year of his deal and that deal is Donovan Mitchell sign his third contract. I think the Jazz will call that a win, you know, because if if if you go into free agency may be right now if you look at the free if you look at free agency right now, there is nobody else out of koala and that's on the market and we all know the koala is not really on the market so long you've had an entire NBA basically gear up for the summer of 2021 because the expectation was there was going to be Jana Santa Claus. Bolt on the market Paul George possibly on the market Rudy gobert possibly on the market. There are so many guys that were supposed to be on the market. And now none of them is on the market. So as hell off of the restricted guys from that 2017 draft class to like Jayson Tatum Donovan Mitchell Etc, right. So imagine if Rudy gobert was on the market as an unrestricted free agent home and that's why it to me that the contract doesn't matter the Jazz had to get that done and they had to they you know for for for the Jazz really go Bears weigh two hundred million dollars. He is he is their defensive system. He is the reason he is one of the biggest reasons why the Jazz of 15 and five right now, he's playing at a career level despite back with you know, what Sunday Sunday afternoon may have war against Nikola jokic, you know, so he's you know, he's he's he outplayed his last contract he's dead. Really well heading into to to this contract. So, you know, I don't think the Jazz are losing sleep over over that contract at all. And the other thing is if you lose your job are you definitely not getting Donovan Mitchell back for third contract or your or at the very least your chances are severely damaged and you know if the job as if this 15 is Starters five starters real in the Jazz are actually one of the top three teams in the Western Conference and you know, they can improve on Thursday next year and so on and so on then you increase the chance to keep and Donovan Mitchell for you for your third contract for his third contract in in this is you know, all of them is Big Picture stuff, you know, so, you know to me it's the you know, you're paying Rudy gobert two hundred million dollars and you know, he's dead. He's worth, you know, every penny that to the.

A Deep Dive Into Rudy Gobert After the Jazz Lose To Denver

"Talk about Rudy. Gobert. What? What do we want to know about mr. Gaubert because I thought before today and obviously today is Sunday. I thought before the day that he was running away with the defensive player of the year award. And then today happened today happened. I would not go as far as running away with the defensive player wage. I thought he was running away. I thought it was a significant gap between him and everybody else. So I totally understand why you would say that their top five and defense coming into town today. They're really really good team Utah. They are arguably playing better before today than anybody in the NBA just point blank. Especially now that the Lakers have hit like off a bit of a bit of a malaise having said that I'm still saying Anthony Davis Ford Prince of player of the year because they've number one defense and he's the one the keys the number one defense in the NBA off. He's by far the most versatile defender in the NBA Rudy I think is a reasonable like honestly probably would be second for me right now Myles Turner has a case sneaky class that I've been advocating as much as I can Larry Nance would probably be in my top five right now. He is the whole reason that the Cavs have a reasonable defense. Yep. Right now a top-10 defense, but I digress nonetheless Rudy gobert has been very very good for the Utah Jazz this year and I thought that Utah's games this week. We're kind of a perfect encapsulation of the Rudy gobert experience against Dallas. He was the reason that they just come holy month and utterly annihilated the Mavericks in both of those games and I watched the first one close cuz I bet on Dallas because Utah was without Donovan Mitchell was without a favors and Dallas was getting back Dorian finney-smith was getting back to like Powell. I thought that they'd take that energy and catch you too on the back end of a back-to-back and be kind of run away with that game and that absolutely one hundred percent was the wrong side to be on and in large part. It was because of the incredible grass. City that Rudy gobert holds as a pick-and-roll offensive threat, he is completely obliterated kristaps porzingis in that in those two games like butterwood obliterated him like wipe them off the face of the Earth on both ends. He averaged 23 points and 16 rebounds. He had like three blocks. He had a couple of steals. He was dead thing that people who are Jazz fans and that yell from the rooftops about Rudy. Gobert. He was everything in those two games that people say about Rudy being like a top-12 impact player in the NBA. You'll hear sometimes in this game today against Denver Nikola jokic made him look like a parking cone on defense and

"Hara warriors. Age of calamity is a demo out. Intendo switch which is free to download ahead of the launch on november the twentieth much more breath the wild and it's predecessor hyrule warriors nintendo of done a great job of marketing this one as a breath prequel and it's got fans hardtop and are really really look forward to the release. The visuals and mechanics of the game are very breath. The walled with curry tecmo bringing in the sheikha slight abilities like bombs ice magnetism the bio mechanics of horror. Warriors have been mixed in really well here with link and other party members feeling really powerful when you run into battle to mogens and the other enemies are flying in the absolute hundreds really really cold. Seen the game has been sapped as a prequel and as such age of calamity is set one hundred years before breath of the world and we saw games is of this battle in breath of the wild itself with the champions falling battle against calamity. Gannon the snippets. We saw wearing cut scenes and memories and age of calamity looks to finally fill in the blanks for us the various playable heroes in the game including link impo zelda and the champions themselves. I don't play tara warriors previously but the bow system is super fun. Actually i had a lot more fun than i thought. I was going to. If i self against waves of enemies in the hundreds much more than freshness standards zelda game battles take place in a math around haro with a at filled with friendly and enemy does to as pockets of enemies but there's also objectives marked on the map we have to either secure location or takeout big enemy or this some kind of objective in the demo. Batum with guardian. We have to enable these sleeping guards help. Impact and a mini time travelling guardian to there's a variety of attacks including a light attack has a heavy attack and various special attacks. Which also have a cool down as mentioned before you got access to these chic as lite which allows you to use bombs crisis as stacy's too so bombs are really good for destroying a bunch of enemies and also freeze enemies with stasis because smash enemies off into the distance which as as it was in breath awad age of calamity battles film and the characters. You play already different to his easy to switch between characters during batteries in the deep end so impo in particular is very powerful as she can make duplicates of 'self and seldom makes creative use of the sheiks like but she doesn't feel quite as powerful as the other two characters. I played infamy is the most fun definitely. Give her a try. I'm looking forward to playing as the champions in particular dirac so related to the narrative. The game there's a mini guardian. The can travel through time and he appears to be in. Jairo costs sometime in the future and hops into a wormhole to escape a big guardian. The narrative is super interesting as you pretty much the fate the champions link and zelda similar to star wars rogue one tragedy does a white the how we get there is going to be full of twists and turns at first. I wasn't really sure about this. Release not having played the other titles dynasty warriors or hira warriors. I wasn't ready tissue about this. Zelda spinoff but the fact that nintendo has given arguably the talk name to a third party says a lot which know downton. We'll be across much more than ever before and the great thing about the demo is you can jumping without having to make expensive commitment science clemency job in its hands command in november with loads of behaviors around it plus new consoles. But this is definitely something. Nintendo fans are gonna be checking out over the holiday season. So i'd say if you're on the fence pick up the demo and give it a try. I for one have been persuaded a can't wait to jump in come november the twentieth.

Does Size Matter When It Comes To Health

"Dr Stanford is an obesity medicine, physician, scientists, educator and policymaker at Massachusetts General. Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She also lectures at Brown and Teaches Med students at Harvard. Hello, and welcome well. Thanks for having me. It's an absolute delight to be here today with both of you. We're just we're the most accomplished person ever had this podcast like I cannot even begins. Batum were all you have. You guys are the best and this is. This is what I need to me through the rest of the day as I conquer the world. Yeah! We're honored that you made have the time the time to come talk to us just a little, so thank you so much. Did I get all of that right? You did I I. Guess What I can do is explain it to people because people are kind of like is all of that absolutely so? I'm obviously a mathematician, so the MD is the easiest part I think to understand on my completed my masters in public health nineteen years ago, so it shows you that I'm older than I appear. And that was in health policy management. My masters impose ministration was from the Harvard. Kennedy School, government and government. Currently working on my MBA executive MBA, so that hasn't quite made it to the end of my name, but I may lead US next year. Let me tell you guys. We'll have more to talk about. The the all the that you see after not team for fifteen, but it is nice that it goes with that, so those are all fellowships, so my fellow of the ANC, which is the American Academy pediatrics I'm a fellow of American College of Positions. American college positions represents all Physicians for adult so internal medicine, a fellow of the American Heart Association so basically. I'm looking at cardio metabolic health and being the fellow in the American Heart Association what represents that and then a fellow in the obesity society. Society which is the F. Toss? So you know these fellowships come you know after having accomplished in those different on areas domain, so I see children I see adults I work in this kind of Cardio Metabolic, health space obviously as obesity medicine physician I work in that space, so it really is a combination of kind of who I am, and just looking at Vegas, the letters that come after my name really talks to the work that I really care about and working with my patients patients across the wall. That's amazing. Wow -gratulations. What inspired you study obesity. One of the things that I was always very concerned about as a black one in a black woman who was born and raised in Atlanta Julie obviously in Boston is that's where mastermind Harvard are? I'm I was really. Perplexed I think is the word I WANNA. Use about the disproportionate impact obesity on communities of color particularly I'm the black community. That was what really brought me to this work, so if you go back twenty years ago, I think you've as you're in your twenties for twenty years ago. When I was doing my m H, you're not okay. Across. Our loved anyways Oh! That's Cute I. Love it still have you guys by? Decades! but one of the things I was really interested in seeing was like. I felt like there was a lot that we weren't doing to understand why. Obesity obesity disproportionately impacted certain groups and the groups that are more likely to kind of tackle these issues or the people that are representative, so those scripts so as a black woman and the group that is most disproportionately impacted by obesity I felt compelled to really approach and tackle this headline, so the projects that I was doing back at emory school of Public Health, back in ninety nine two thousand etc, We're looking at specifically obesity in the black community one project I was doing was. Was Looking at obesity in the Black Church community was looking at obesity among African, American, adolescent girls and one was looking at obesity within those that are law resources within the wick programs. It'll women's and children's for Ram, and how could we fix their Their plight in terms of recognizing that we can in some ways with the limited resources that they may have available to enhance their role house. So this was something that was kind of lingering. I didn't anticipate that I would choose obese medicine. 'cause that was not a field when I was twenty years ago. It really was not a field. There was no board certification in obesity medicine. The first Brit sort of patients directly. No Be Madison didn't start until two thousand well, which was well after I finished medical school, but I can tell you I was on. Call in the pediatric ICU when I was in residency and I as internal medicine pediatrics and I literally just googled obesity in medicine at about two thirty in the morning after I just intimated three kids in the ICU in a new. I was going to sleep at nights. I figured I'd just need to keep myself busy. And, the fellowship here at Mass General at Harvard popped up and I was like. What is this? You know I I really interested in obesity. I had no idea there was a fellowship, indeed the first ship and so I came and I spent three years. Doing a fellowship dedicated to understanding the disease of obesity.

"But I know it's the extra safety valve, or it's the equity in my home, or it's my ability to to adjust my spending, or it's my ability to go back and work more like I I could work at some point the next fifty years if I had to my concern, actually in particularly for a lot of people in the fire movements and I've even seen this just for. More traditional retirees that work with as well. I think there's a secondary challenge that we've. Problem that we've created for ourselves that to me. The retirement in general and the fire movement is an extension of it has become too much r. e., and not Enough F- I. So! Retirement like. Idol life this sort of like dream of retirement of luxury where I never do anything of the obligations for the rest of my life is not the natural state of human beings. We need a reason to get up in the morning. What we see in practice when people were retire, isolationism increases, depression increases divorce rate increases after retirement is actually all sorts of bad stuff that happened after retirement, and it's not because retirements batum trying to scare everyone away from retirement. It's because not having purpose and a reason to get up in the morning. Is Not actually good for most of our mental states, and eventually that gets expressed in our physical states as well, and so there are subset of people who find ways to occupy themselves, and could be totally happy puttering around the house because they've got a purpose when they wake up in the morning might not be a money or anything they just they've got a purpose, you know. My father retired early been doing for a long time. He is the family genealogist. He wakes up every day to do genealogy. That's his thing. But. The problem or the place where I think we got ourselves into trouble is when we focus so much on the retire or the retire early. We create this binary state. I'm working until I have enough nothing. I never have to work again. And we don't think of it from what I think is a much better framework of the. F. I., framework, which is I'm going to accumulate enough money to get to the point where what I decided to do with my time is no longer dependent on money. which is very very different than saying. Have to work anymore. And what concerns me about it and the pattern I've seen play out with just one retiree after another having done this for twenty years now is they spend years and years doing the work saving the dollars for many of them. The last few years are not particularly enjoyable work. They're done the ready to be done. They don't like their job anymore. Their boss or whatever it is, but they stick with it because we gotta get that number. I don't have.

What Ghost

"Welcome to kids miss and mystery. Sign your host kit crumbs all this week. We've been talking about and researching psychics clairvoyance paranormal things with crystal balls and Ouija boards. Next week we start Wednesday with interviews with a psychic and clairvoyant and I thought since clairvoyance talk to spirits it only appropriate that today I provide you with a real ghost story. Let me tell you finding a real ghost story. It can be as simple as going to the library or bookstore but the ghost story. I'll read today. Came to me from an individual with what I can only call real life experience as you listen. Keep in mind that I'm reading. Someone else's encounter with the ghost mildly contribution to the tail is traditional editing. I found necessary. Otherwise the words make up. The story are all authors who assured me are all true and because she was simply writing about her encounter. There will be no title to the story. Here we go ellen. Richmond rides about her encounter with the ghost as follows. The room was small behind attached to a store that sold all things. What got the curtains were pulled shut on the only two windows but only partially blocked out the light in the middle of the room was around table and six chairs one was more like thrown or the medium would sit. We were instructed to hold hands. There were no candles know. Incense the room was bare. Except for the table and chairs. We were five childhood friends on the verge of college. We'd lost one. Recently Billy had drowned. We'd pooled our money and sought out Madam Hester. She reminded me of my grandmother and more the face. A thousand lives with no attempt to hide wrinkle. Silver Hair tied back tight. She spoke with smokers voice. We were instructed to remain silent until contact was made at which time each of us could ask one question beginning with me and moving clockwise. She made it clear we were to ask a single simple question. Batum Hester unlike a TV medium didn't chant or roller head from left to right and when she made contact she didn't nod the only indication of contact when she spoke. And it was billy's voice. We all exchange looks of amazement. What is Your Question Ellen? When Billy's voice spoke my name I felt lightheaded but managed to ask. What was your favorite form of transportation? Matama Hester was sitting. Ramrod-straight is fixed on the center of the table. I think I was holding my breath until billy answered my question my bicycle. That was it a two word answer. Jesse was next and ask if billy like math. We all knew that he hated math. This time his answer was a single syllable. No it had been decided by Jesse and his girlfriend Sarah who sat on his right that the three of us should establish that we were really speaking with billy. Nothing in this obituary or at his funeral would have provided information about his love for his bicycle. In eight of math. Sarah had always flirted with bill and I knew who question would make or break. The seance did you kiss me under the old weeping willow tree no can the answer under the Nolan Street Bridge. I leaned forward nodded at Sarah. Whose eyes were like saucers. I heard Tom take a deep breath. Give us a physical sign. As evidenced in connection has truly been made you could have heard a pin drop as we waited for a response than the room was filled with the sound of that. Stupid Bell. Billy. Used to ring when he wrote his bike wanted to get someone's attention. Mickey gave my hand squeeze his would be the last question but it would break Madam. Hesters rule his question would be a single requestion. Definitely not simple. We all miss you. Billy and we'll be leaving the area and the end of summer and would like to see you one last time to say goodbye. I could hear my heartbeat. My Eyes Burn with the request. I'd know billy since I was three. We were best friends. All of us were on a picnic on the riverbank when he decided to go for a swim my last memory of his broad shoulders back and Bright Red Trunks. Z. Waded into the water. His answer came as a shock. Meet me at my grave. Batum Hester raised her gaze from the center of the table. I hope all your questions were answered. She said I would have thought that his answer meet me at my grave would have been followed with at midnight but it was broad daylight. Four o'clock we all piled into the SUV. That Jesse's parents had given him the graduation. The town's only cemetery was located just past industrial district at the south end of town Jesse parked at the front. We climbed out and walked as one pass the older section of the cemetery to the Green Tree Lawn. That made up the newest portion. Billy simple headstone was located next to. The fence separated the older section from the newest when I saw him sitting on his headstone. I look left and right I was alone and realize that I'd kept walking but everyone else had stopped when they sign. I took a couple more steps until I was arm's length away. At that moment I realized my face wet with tears I reached out. I'll miss you but never forget. He raised a hand in extended his index finger. There couldn't have been more than an inch between fingers when billy vanished. An I fainted. That was eight years ago but I remember billy on his gravestone like yesterday. I'm currently er nurse and often work at night shift alone. Of course with the doctor on call. I've never had any other paranormal experiences. But carry a picture of billy many nights. When I'm alone I call out his name. There's never a response but I never feel lonely.

"Welcome to kids miss and mystery. Sign your host Kit crump. We've been talking about and researching psychics clairvoyance paranormal things with crystal balls and Ouija boards. Next week we start Wednesday with interviews with a psychic and clairvoyant and I thought since clairvoyance talk to spirits it only appropriate that today I provide you with a real ghost story. Let me tell you finding a real ghost story. It can be as simple as going to the library or bookstore but the ghost story. I'll read today. Came to me from an individual with what I can only call real life experience as you listen. Keep in mind that I'm reading. Someone else's encounter with the ghost mildly contribution to the tail is traditional editing. I found necessary. Otherwise the words make up. The story are all authors who assured me are all true and because she was simply writing about her encounter. There will be no title to the story. Here we go ellen. Richmond rides about her encounter with the ghost as follows. The room was small behind attached to a store that sold all things. What got the curtains were pulled shut on the only two windows but only partially blocked out the light in the middle of the room was around table and six chairs one was more like thrown or the medium would sit. We were instructed to hold hands. There were no candles know. Incense the room was bare. Except for the table and chairs. We were five childhood friends on the verge of college. We'd lost one. Recently Billy had drowned. We'd pooled our money and sought out Madam Hester. She reminded me of my grandmother and more the face. A thousand lives with no attempt to hide wrinkle. Silver Hair tied back tight. She spoke with smokers voice. We were instructed to remain silent until contact was made at which time each of us could ask one question beginning with me and moving clockwise. She made it clear we were to ask a single simple question. Batum Hester unlike a TV medium didn't chant or roller head from left to right and when she made contact she didn't nod the only indication of contact when she spoke. And it was billy's voice. We all exchange looks of amazement. What is Your Question Ellen? When Billy's voice spoke my name I felt lightheaded but managed to ask. What was your favorite form of transportation? Matama Hester was sitting. Ramrod-straight is fixed on the center of the table. I think I was holding my breath until billy answered my question my bicycle. That was it a two word answer. Jesse was next and ask if billy like math. We all knew that he hated math. This time his answer was a single syllable. No it had been decided by Jesse and his girlfriend Sarah who sat on his right that the three of us should establish that we were really speaking with billy. Nothing in this obituary or at his funeral would have provided information about his love for his bicycle. In eight of math. Sarah had always flirted with bill and I knew who question would make or break. The seance did you kiss me under the old weeping willow tree no can the answer under the Nolan Street Bridge. I leaned forward nodded at Sarah. Whose eyes were like saucers. I heard Tom take a deep breath. Give us a physical sign. As evidenced in connection has truly been made you could have heard a pin drop as we waited for a response than the room was filled with the sound of that. Stupid Bell. Billy. Used to ring when he wrote his bike wanted to get someone's attention. Mickey gave my hand squeeze his would be the last question but it would break Madam. Hesters rule his question would be a single requestion. Definitely not simple. We all miss you. Billy and we'll be leaving the area and the end of summer and would like to see you one last time to say goodbye. I could hear my heartbeat. My Eyes Burn with the request. I'd know billy since I was three. We were best friends. All of us were on a picnic on the riverbank when he decided to go for a swim my last memory of his broad shoulders back and Bright Red Trunks. Z. Waded into the water. His answer came as a shock. Meet me at my grave. Batum Hester raised her gaze from the center of the table. I hope all your questions were answered. She said I would have thought that his answer meet me at my grave would have been followed with at midnight but it was broad daylight. Four o'clock we all piled into the SUV. That Jesse's parents had given him the graduation. The town's only cemetery was located just past industrial district at the south end of town Jesse parked at the front. We climbed out and walked as one pass the older section of the cemetery to the Green Tree Lawn. That made up the newest portion. Billy simple headstone was located next to. The fence separated the older section from the newest when I saw him sitting on his headstone. I look left and right I was alone and realize that I'd kept walking but everyone else had stopped when they sign. I took a couple more steps until I was arm's length away. At that moment I realized my face wet with tears I reached out. I'll miss you but never forget. He raised a hand in extended his index finger. There couldn't have been more than an inch between fingers when billy vanished. An I fainted. That was eight years ago but I remember billy on his gravestone like yesterday. I'm currently er nurse and often work at night shift alone. Of course with the doctor on call. I've never had any other paranormal experiences. But carry a picture of billy many nights. When I'm alone I call out his name. There's never a response but I never feel lonely.

You're doing this stuff for me for free anyway. We'll pay you with I ate it. But really having that investment, it is important and is one of the reasons why I really wanted to start the BG is because I know that I have been very lucky very blessed to have those women who have mentored me, who have provide any guidance, but other women, especially young women, they're not going to have those opportunities. So I wanted to present an outlet where we share those stories and help those women come along and even today where outta my career mentorship means everything to me, still to be able to call up my fellow sister circle..

We do not pay them to sit there and behave like kindergartners fighting over a toy. While the rest of the room is in chaos. You know this week we lost four people for brave Americans in Syria. Serious a mess, regardless of what the president would like it to be. Twenty one people including one American trying his best to do something. Good for the world were killed in a bomb blast in Nairobi. We have sailors. And airmen and soldiers and marines, and yes coastguards serving around the world. The world's not as safe as we would like it to be. So maybe at least we should pay the people at the airport who are the first line of defense against explain these exploding airplanes. So we all know that as a businesswoman. I focus a lot on the numbers. And in the numbers this week. Eight hundred thousand government workers still have not been paid that didn't get paid on January twelfth. And it's unlikely they will be paid at the end of this week either. Three hundred migrants emerged from a tunnel. Right outside Yuma. Arizona this last Monday, and surrendered to the border patrol so much for walls keeping out the migrants and two hundred and nine billion dollars is the opening bid of governor newsome's, I California budget. So let's talk about the shutdown in for just a few moments. And as the, you know, one of the things that really is is almost inconceivable is as the days marked on and it become a comes to the attention of the White House that food is not being inspected or. Tax refunds may be delayed or other sorts of or not inspecting airplanes can lead to catastrophic failures et cetera. We are calling more and more furloughed government workers back to work. Well, isn't that lovely? Except we're expecting them to come to work. And you know, if you're called back, and you say, I I'm not coming. If you you you can be fired you've put in twenty plus years. You're ODA pension. You've probably at least half of them have served in the military prior. And so you're you know, it's a big part of their lives. And if you say, no, I can't come to work because I don't have a car. I can't afford the bus fare, whatever you can be fired. So here all these people, including the people at the weather service, and it Noah who are keeping track of the nor'easter that was the sperm. We had on Wednesday. That is about to wall up Washington to New England. They're working. They're working hard. The keeping thousands and thousands of airplanes in the sky from colliding with one another and none of them are getting a paycheck. So there is this forced pretense by Washington that somehow things are normal will they're not normal because for every one of those jobs, there's probably in this economy, a Cascadia three or four jobs that are affected by the inability of these people to pay their bills. And that's going to have an impact. On the American economy. And so that's why we're going to spend a little bit of time on it again this morning. So you do know you do know that the people's representatives are home this weekend. Right. That they are at home cozy with their families. And you know, what their mortgages are paid and their credit card bills and their utility bills are paid up to date embarrass expense. Accounts are getting paid because the members of congress are on their salaries. While they keep eight hundred thousand federal workers and probably another two hundred and fifty thousand contractors from getting from earning from receiving the pay for the work. They've done. And somehow to me that is wrong. So. There's in fact now talk of postponing we've already postponed the state of the union. President Trump decided that it wasn't time for Nancy Pelosi and a bunch of Democrats get on an airplane and go talk to NATO and the troops in Afghanistan, which is a part of congressional responsibility. But. If you're outta town next week. How are we going to end this shutdown? So both of them tit for tat. And now comes on Friday news that we may have to cancel the Super Bowl because of the shutdown. Do you wanna talk about economic consequences? We may what may repeat that we may have to can't to postpone the Super Bowl because of the government shutdown, and we'll be back in just about one minute..

"batum" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM

"From Monday. They could be nice over five hundred as keeping company where else? People off again. Now, you're talking fifteen maybe get carried away. This is just keep winning just keep winning get over five hundred hope everybody's had a good good day. Probably get back into sports. Remember this? You know, it's coming. It's sometimes a weatherman tell you this is going to be really really bad. And then if nothing, and of course, sometimes they say, we don't think it's going to be anything. And next thing. You know, you're stuck in a snowdrift. So be prepared. This makes you know, you've got everything you need. Now. Not trying to go out. Twelve hours from now like, oh, shoot amount of milk for the baby stuff. Now. Get your so show. We'll get everything ready. I'd rather be that'd be prepared. And nothing happened. All the mess, your body ice melt and all that it'll keep it'll keep it'll be another storm. You get to use it. You know? Pay attention to the weather because most most of y'all will be in hunkered down. When this thing starts, I'll be coming in. So I got to watch the weather when when the when the. The ground gets covered. It's time to go. And we'll see what happens. Let's see what else we got Odio thing about. But the Knicks. I watched that game in London. And something that that they'll say was caught my attention where he said. We really lost the goaltending. Call off by a point. Had a chance to win. They had a big league and hold it. Like, you know, either get a big lead and lose it or they they they're down a lot. And he can't close the gap. Said the learning experience for the club. I said man will keep making the same mistakes. What's what's the learning? What did you learn? I mean kept driving into traffic. I'm like. I mean, what time you're gonna realize. They're they're saying on you when you try and go to the basket. But now there's nobody on the Knicks star on the net. Anyway. But that's that's okay. Goal is. And it's not tanking. The goal is just play. 'cause you're not that good. And you know, you're either going to have a big lead and blow it or are you going to fall in a hole, and I get out of it. You win a game here and there, but. No. Yankees. They made a deal. You know, if you pick the Batum out of veto this killer bullpen, but I don't know if that makes them the number one team the beat. Even even. Chorus saying, you know, you ain't nothing yet. That's where everybody said, oh, they only one. They only one hundred eight they won't do it again next year. How do you know? He's one hundred where you're saying this team gets you more than one hundred and one wins. Are you going to be better than last year? Hey, you can have you can have a really good year with ninety seven game. I dunno might price should get you something. But by having this outstanding bullpen makes you wonder what are you? What happens to the starters? How long are they going? It's. Certain guys, you know, you're going to need them to give you hopefully, eight innings Severino. And maybe it's a knock of maybe a pack of maybe somebody's got gotta be able to go seven or eight to save the bullpen because you don't wanna fall into where you were you using them all the time. And you know, what's going to happen? You gotta get them work. What's the point of having this? Great bullpen if you can't use it. But you gotta use it wisely because you're looking to go to the World Series. You don't want these guys couple of attire. Going into the end of September. And cash was trying to move sunny. Greg good move. He's not, you know, he's just not built for New York. But don't forget they've cared. Green is floating in the bullpen, and John holder and keenly. I mean. Kaley lights it up during during the spring is he trade possibility of what what happens, you know, you've got extra pieces. But even though they've got a good bullpen, which of these guys can put the ball in play. They're not they're they're pitchers. They still need guys who put the ball in play. Lewinsky may. Maybe. But I don't know if they're better yet because of the staff the the you've got a great bullpen. And someone said it best tonight. You know, the old saying is you can never have enough pitching. I think that's changed. You can never have enough bullpen. Because the starters are almost a relevant look suppose time to start you know, he's only going to give you three to four. And maybe let's say forty will be kind. Well, then why don't you start green for two innings and then bring in holder and keenly bringing the guy to get to the seventh inning. And save Batanes in Chapman. And then have CC pits. The Sabbath maybe CC finishes the game maybe gives you to winning. He's he's laboring. There's a bad day is hot or something. Then you still got still got cabinet declared closed the game. You know, he's only going to give you so many innings. So, you know. I'd rather have him struggle at the end of the game. You could take him out and go right to your bullpen at that point. And this is. Last year. They had to get two sets of bullpen guy. Britain's clothes and Chapman's closer and vino and Batanes is are also set up guys. You can throw green in Holden pair them off with with one or the other. That's not bad things may change. Maybe maybe green and holder and Kalia partisan trade deal who knows? And we got the big games on on Sunday. I like the Rams because they showed they can pass. They can also grind you into the dirt with their running game. And I'm gonna you know, I know I'll throw dirt on New England again Kansas City. I I'm just the weather's the only concern for me. It's cold. And it's not windy, then it's fine. They used to play in cold weather. If it's single digits and a twenty mile an hour wind, you know, that's good effect play. But I think the young guy. Mahomes. He just he just seems to be built for the moment. You wanna scheme against me? Okay. It's all right. Bella ticks and after scheme against his kid because you know, how do you ski against somebody? You haven't really seen before? I know you beat them already. But but they put forty points up. He can roll right and throw left he can throw left, and he can he can roll left and throw left. He could take off. And I thought that the I thought they lose their offense was Kareem hunt. And no. Mr beat. So how do you contain the guy? Well, that's gonna come in. Because I I think he's gonna make a little bit difficult for Brady and the New England, and if they face it if if New England does lose, Dan people finally write him off, probably it's still premature, but I probably write him off. Maybe farther time is in the building this time. And pack your fights Brennan tonight could be the end of an era pack. Yeah, losers. I think that's the end of it. You won't see him anymore, and he'll just go back to politics. Bruna went and God, I got to him some more. Hopefully, not. And a good good boxing story. A Danny Jacobs champ, midway from Brooklyn. He's gonna fight Condello Alvarez WBZ tavern unification by may force the by weekend Davin, they don't have a venue yet. Probably be in Vegas. Little big those big fights a Vegas, either the MGM the T mobile arena, but the day Jacobs almost died from cancer and got his title back. And I think that's a really good fight coming up take a break. We'll be right back. Oh, hi there. Al dukes here from the boomer and geo show it is freezing cold outside today and probably will be again tomorrow..

"Exercise is good for your mental health. Most people are aware of that fact, but researchers have now been able to put a much more precise figure on how much and how often but his about uns- overdo it, and it could have a negative effect Dr. Saami check route. One of the authors of the report told damn Damon more. We've got the biggest study today, looking at one point, three million people and found that people who exercise on average experience, forty percent Batum mental health than people who didn't exercise. And like you said, they're the there was this really, really cool finding of as kind of sweet spot. So we found that people who exercise for three to five times each week for about forty five minutes. Each time found the best benefit for the mental health. How do you demonstrate? How do you measure in teed better mental issues at forty percent improvement in mental health? How do you measure that? And what's it mean? Yeah. So it's. A great question. And so the data we looked is from a big survey collected by the US government. Let's PA the center for disease control and prevention, and they run this really huge telephone survey and more specifically people answer the question where they were asked to reflect on their mental health. So it's quite an old encompassing question and asked to report how many days bad mental health they had when thinking about their mood, their stress, anxiety, or emotional problems. So the question they actually answered in the report that they gave really encompassed that perceived experience of life and the into the and the insight into that mental health at that time and forty five minutes three to five times a week, and we're not talking about running marathons, always. This is exercise, including brisk walking, that kind of thing. Yeah, it's honestly, it's fantastic. So we found that although there are some sports are better than others, so we found popular sport. So the kind of team sports that you would play school football and lacrosse netball. That kind of thing were associated with the best mental health benefit. But we. Also found ready, good mental health benefit solar sports like cycling running and even things that you might not think about great for physical excise. So indeed, people who exercise who just walked, for example, three to five times a week, and also a really good benefit then mental health. But what you also identified is that you can stretch yourself out if you do too much of this kind of thing. Explain that, yes. Oh, another great feature of of how large data say is that we can really look the kind of intricacies of these patents. And so we found that as people got towards the extremes of exercise in so over exercising over five times a week, achy them mental health was worse than people who exercise either three to five times a week or compared to not exercising toll indeed. So it definitely suggests that too much could be a bad thing for your mental health, but there are a few things that kind of can make a bit more complicated Dr. Somme check around.
