"Debut on. espn two. I believe along with moody. I think is going to be able to help them now. Wiggins is going to be a great third score for them wise man. I saw him jumping and down dancing after a bucket last night in summer league which means he's probably on the men and getting better think the warriors are fine but some addition still could be underway possibly etc and in a sign and trade with With uber amen. To what mark said at the beginning. Give steph all the money all of this. Everything that's happened to. The warriors starts with steph curry five billion dollar valuation. That he talked about the new arena. That's going to print money. It all is possible. Only because of steph curry he is the tim. Duncan of the golden state warriors. It starts and ends with him. Give him whatever he can get as for the team. Look i think they're going to be really good. But it's really just depends on clay. Clay gonna come back. When does he. We know he's coming back. When what condition would it be at. How long will see before we see a prime peak klay thompson but everyone they meet these pictures seven and fourteen and it was all this hubbub about oh i guess the warriors are are going young joe lake. Oh the the governor said yeah. We're we're happy to bridge the gap lake this these. This is just stop like these. It doesn't mean that they've stopped looking for trades at their. if bradley beal becomes available star x becomes available. The words is elements. whatever it is. They're going to keep looking around and keep looking steph. Curry made some comments to marcus thompson. The athletic yesterday after signing decision. About yeah i want to be involved in those conversations as long as we're doing everything we can to win. I'm happy if we have issues so this is an aesthetic situation. it's done. they're going to see what opportunities come up. And in the meantime see how ready wiseman moody and commingle etc are to contribute now and this is a team where that maximum. Hey the nba is not just ordering off. The menu comes true rape the idea that. Oh can't they go out. And get someone on steph timeline. That player has to be available now. We just talked about the bradley beal tweet. We don't know what that means. Maybe he's more than we thought we'll find out. But certainly a guy like steph curry. There's a handful of players in the nba. Steph is certainly one of them. who are actually underpaid. I mean as crazy as that is. What are you talking about making sixty million dollars when you talk about how much revenue they bring in. They are actually underpaid. Because we have a salary cap in this league and steph is one of the very few that you will be able to say that about no matter how much money he is making his first extension coming in just eleven million dollars a.

"You just gotta make sure what you have to do this year as much as anything else. It's get the chemistry right between Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Yeah, so that if they get a brad Beal, they're collecting it all cylinders and both those guys are getting better. Like they have to keep making strides so that they're ready in a year. You know, Tatum again is a top-five player in the league in two years and Jaylen. Brown is a clear-cut all star and and has gotten his decision making. But, you know, you know, his shot continues to fall if that's the case, all right? The other team that I I'm looking at and I'm saying, like, they're close. They're kind of long Celtics in a way they're closed. They got a superstar coming in ja Morant. It's the Memphis Grizzlies who didn't do a whole lot. Now, I didn't like their draft at all. Love with the 10th pick. They took a kid names out off. Williams, who's an awesome kid, honest and pretty play with with bronny James at high school at Sierra. Canyon came in with a lot of hype had an up-and-down freshman year at Stanford but here's the part he's a long athletic skilled fairly skilled Wing. You know six seven. They took him tenth less than nobody else is going to take him in the top fifteen, they could have moved. Can take a nap and then the craziest one. Is they have the the they they traded with Utah and got the 30th pick of the draft and they took your kid out of Loyola. Maryland, I'm originally from Spain in Santee Alley aldana, I've heard of I know of them. I've never seen him play in person cuz I know their head coach tomorrow. It's already pretty well and when he got him he said he's going to be a pro and I am sure it's going to be Pro one. Well he was drafted 30th when I don't think anybody else. A lot of people didn't even have. When I talk to NBA guests didn't even have them on their boards, wasn't even the top 60 month or some NBA teams. So I don't in Memphis, I don't maybe I'm wrong but I don't think they've done anything in free agency. Either their name has not popped up all this wildness. So what are you doing? If you're Memphis? What the hell are you doing? Because you got ja Morant, you got Jackson coming back. Dillon Brooks has been really good. You're not far away from taking that next step but you gotta make moves here. Yeah I know I don't know what the plan is. I mean obviously we have no idea what but it is. Surprising. No question. All right, here's another one for Thursday..

"Get ready for Zion to bolt the minimum soon as he can't, you know. All right. So I'll say something on that. I don't believe that yet. I think, I think science a lot closer to your honest than. Yes, in terms of his mentality, I'm telling you will never get him on the show. I can try like this kid is like salt of the earth. If you sit down with Zhong, Call you instead, and I've sat down with him numerous times, you are blown away by this kid, like he is the highest level, like character everything. He's right about everything, you know, like, everything is about him, is his right about basketball. I don't think he'll bolt unless again, but I said that about Anthony Davis off. Some of the same things. I love Anthony Davis as a kid, all that, but ultimately as they grow up and they lose eventually, they get to the point where not just them, but their agents and their p a random say, like, you know, you gotta demand a trade. You gotta, you gotta say, you're not going to whatever it is. Could that happen with sign? Sure. I don't see. Scientists, the type to just bulb from New Orleans at the first sign of and again, it would be my my efforts was, it was, it was just him looking around seeing where we going and, you know, that kind of thing. You know. And not not not I need to get my ass. Money or anything like that or it's playing that that he's too young to be playing. I got to get a ring thing, you know. Yeah. But but you know, just I mean turkey on somebody Years be honest. Is in your life, right? Yep. I mean science is finished here to Iowa. I just do that out there. Yeah I don't see that happening quickly I could see that. I mean listen Bradley Beal in Washington. He's coming into your night. I think, right. Like now he's a free agent in a year and again maybe now's the time will get to loser's so far and free agency. It might as well. And I don't think we need to sugarcoat this. I mean, the Boston Celtics might be the Biggest Loser right now in the NBA because you've got to All Stars one guy knocking on the the door of of being a top-five player in the league and Jayson Tatum in my opinion maybe again people say I'm crazy on that but I think Jayson Tatum will be the best scorer in the NBA in.

"Second tick all right so we have six questions left for fridge. This is the next one for me. Are the celtics waiting for bradley beal. Because that was the internet conspiracy theory on the internet today because the other option for their off-season was All of the power is out in the celtics office and they're trapped inside and nobody can get a hold anybody there. It's one of those two. So what do you think. Are they waiting for bradley. Beal what how would you explain them. Sitting out basically the entire fridge. I mean. they're waiting for something. They haven't even completed the three way deal involving thompson and done that might have to wait till august. Sixth then maybe they expand on it. I don't know what the deal is. There is actually With the hold up it seems like it'll be a complicated three way deal but it's very very odd. How they've sat out entirely. I mean we're talking about like a lot of good players could fit on the roster here like you mentioned will younger guy malik. Monk plenty of veterans could fit to. I wonder. I wonder why. I mean i wonder what they are waiting for By not using any of the money this year but then again they are against the cap and they have luxury tax issues potentially Especially with guys coming up so maybe it's just not about committing any money this year and getting themselves into a tough situation but still not even league minimum guy kind of odd first of all luxury tax. They've made ten times on the investment that they paid for the team on that. I'm not really sweating it for them. here's here's what they would have in summer two twenty twenty two. Here's what's on the books jason tatum. Thirty point three jalen brown twenty point seven. This is for the season after the next one. Al horford twenty six point five or fourteen point five pay that they could stretch for three years so basically be four point seven five year whatever and then needs smith and pritchard six point oh combined so guaranteed wise. They could either be if they just keep horford. Ninety one point five if they just pay horford fourteen point five to get rid of him that seventy nine point five if they stretch horford. They're basically at seventy. The cap will be at somewhere between one. Fifteen and one twenty. That's more than enough money to make jain offer to a free agent next summer and the number of guys bradley. Beal we all know. He's friends with jason tatum. I have a couple of thoughts on this one. I think it's really risky to just cross your fingers. No for bradley beal. We saw them getting incredible amounts of trouble with that with the anthony davis couple years ago to. I'm not positive. I love tatum. Jalen and bradley beal as entire salary cap. Three guys who liked to have the ball. That don't necessarily make anyone else better. That makes me nervous. And then three if this is your plan. You can't do an extension for marcus and you know. Marcus is gonna start rightfully complaining about that soon. Like hey are they gonna make me or not. He's in the last year brazil. And that's the time lord issue. So i wonder maybe this bradley beal thing is an internet red herring and what they're actually going to do is mystery guy who we don't know who that is yet because as you said. They haven't completed that weird trade smart extension. Maybe it's twenty million a year for him bump robert williams maybe twelve million a year. And that's the team they roll with. Could the mystery guy be lauri markkanen or how about john collins just to throw another name out there so so they would have to go. They'd have to be enough under the cap to try to steal him for restricted off. And i don't think they have the money. They can only get twenty right. It would have to be like a massive you know. Add onto the existing deal as is a non. Have to get law marcus. Smart back they'd have to take other guys back into deal like would get really complicated. Seems too far fetched probably is. I'm just throwing the name out there. But i mean i i did. I did all the math on it. Because i was thinking sean collins actually did atlanta would have to facilitate it and why would atlanta help us. Get john collins. They're not doing that unless they wanted. Feel marcus smart. Back in return. I i could potentially see that like on paper getting him in a back horwood. Trae young. i'd be. I'd be into that. That'd be cool marcus. Smart trae young backcourt. You're not a fan marcus. One of those guys that. I'm ready for them. They trade him. But i'm also going to be devastated when they i mean he's been the heartbeat of the team for years so i wonder why you wanna treat them so often bill. He's the heartbeat of the team. They've been lifeless without him on the court a lot of time when he was out in recent years they didn't have any energy on defender. He brings it could market and bring them what you would think collins would bring them in a lotta ways like a of a scoring forward with size. I where do you stand market. And we've never had the conversation. I don't think. I mean. I never loved him in the drafts. Back in the day bulls fans hated me. I gave the pick like a c. Minus for drought rail micah and now they want gone with with marketing. Still only twenty three years old has dealt with injuries dealt with jim. Boylan changing coaches changing personnel around ever had a real point guard. Never had a real point guard and i mean the the problem is he doesn't rebound and he doesn't offend but i think his offensive creativity has been untapped and chicago so while i love the pick of the time. He's underwhelmed since he was drafted seventh in the lottery. There's still a lot of ability on offense that i'd be very curious to see what a creative coach could get out of him because he's like a garden body with the way he rebounds the negative but also the way he can shoot from the perimeter to the way he can handle the ball so fluid coast to coast. Really unique i size. I think there's some scoring stuff within. That's a little gallon area. Ask right that would be the dream. It's like basically he turns into gallinari where he's can shoot threes. You can also throwing the ball on the side. He can create some stuff. There's mismatch stuff with him and tatum. That i think could be tough for certain teams. I think he's completely undervalued. Now we talked about guys that like jared allen that have become like almost overvalued like the marketing thing this is not like this is a guy who could be twenty point score on the right team In the bulls just never figured it out with them and then kind of almost sabotage amid seem like and I just out of the guy who are the guys that are left basically. We're taping this right now. It is seven forty nine pacific time. The guys that are left are basically market in schreuder dinwiddie and collins..

"You gotta play players and steph curry's weighing the best basketball of his career. You can say all your little jokes that you've been saying for the last seven years we've heard them all seventy eight times before but seven years they gotta paid dude and their right to do and young kids are assets. If bradley beal becomes available they got young players. They can give up to get him. If damian lillard or ben simmons or somebody who's available day got asked to try to go get him so. This is a smart question. I can't we should steph have done it. Should staff have given them. Year played out this season. See how good they are. And maybe i'll move void ultimately. I like what he did. Because i do think they can still be good. They can be as good as denver as good as a phoenix as good as dallas in utah and he's other contenders in the west. We'll see if they can rise above. But you gotta have your best player to rise above smart move by the golden state warriors. And we'll see what they do. They should build around him. We'll see how klay comes back. I like their young talent. Maybe they'll turn it into a veteran star. But this.

How Do I Niche Down a Business I Bought?

"When niching down you need to make sure there is a need in the market just like our hotel owner who saw in tripadvisor. There's so many complaints about. I would love a place with no kids. There's so much noise tart again. The arrest. I gotta get up early. Because i want to get to the slopes early. If you see pain points that you can solve with your pivot with your knee shing that means you have an audience. You have a target market that is willing to pay for what you got but you also gotta deal with your current customers so there were a lot of customers in hotel that were repeat customers every season that would come back with their families and they were disappointed when they learned. Hey they can't bring their kids because this is a children free hotel now now what you need to understand what this hotel owner understood is that i'm going to lose customers. This is going to happen. I'm going to say no to people but this means i'm gonna be able to say yes to so many more i'm going to say yes to enough customers to keep me happy to keep my business running and in this hotel skits threat full capacity so they can't ask for much more so by saying no in life in general it allows you to say yes to something else if somebody says to me. Hey do you wanna go bowling on thursday night. And i say no will that evening now is free and i can say yes something else. This is what's called opportunity costs right so it's not that just saying no your customers. It's the end all beal. You have the opportunity to say yes now. That you've niche down so make sure you have that market now. It's okay for you to communicate this to your customers and say hey we now cater specifically to these types of people with this type of needs. We appreciate you. You're a loyal customer. If you fit in that kind of description you're gonna love us. If you're not would love reader i somebody to us or you can even get a discount if they want to try so even in this hotels case they could've done the strategy and they could have maybe had the kids grandparents look after the kids so they enjoy their new experience at this hotel so putting them down gently. These current customer of yours is important and also doing it in just a friendly way. You're not gonna please everybody. Something will be like. Hey this new ownership stinks. That's okay. that's just part of the territory as business owners. We gotta have tough

"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.

Nigeria Wins Historic Upset Over Team U.S.A. In Olympic Exhibition

"Men's Olympic basketball is up to eat. Well, um, it didn't start off well over the weekend, they had their first exhibition game against Nigeria in they lost What? 92 87. Team USA goes down, So we got that going for us. Wait a minute. Isn't Kevin Durant on that team? The guy that carry the Brooklyn Nets on his back. Of course. Kevin Durant. Bradley Beal Bam out of bio. Draymond Green Game. Dollar is on their Jayson Tatum. They've got a pretty good lineup. So they lost to Nigeria. Wait a minute. There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

"Is a great opportunity to be able to it out there and speak in front of people. Let them know that we are citizens. We who but we still citizens be played taxes. Y'all you know saying we wake up still human beings. I go outside. And i'm a citizen just like so it was dope man to be able to get out there and stanford some and represents them from me. It was understanding. We were pushing voting rights. You know especially without a police brutality and everything had just happened like a may be understand what my grandparents had went through in know. Maybe understand you know my grandparents and how they didn't have the right to vote. If forced me to want vote issue you know and just low stuff like that with been marching itself was shoes for us because i feel like it brought our organization together and they opened up a lot of people. Is you know who didn't look like this. I be right so they opened up a lot of is too uncomfortable conversations to you know people kind of being ignorant to you know they're racism and it created some some uncomfortable joins but they were necessary. You know in in within organization outside the organization. I it really. It really hit home for a lot of people in participation out of everybody in organization so does best volumes. I think more nba guys to do this but how was it to be at the wnba championships and supporting the mystic. When they won the championship. I've seen a couple of guys there and supported them. And you know they wanna champ show how that to see them. The women do that and put it off these dope and we jealous. Because we ain't got one you know we a out. I'm living vicariously for him and then moment but it was. It was don't man because they got their own arena. You know they got the own setup. Now they're not in our shadows. We share practices like they have they own identity and their whole the year before they had just lost in the finals. Came back hungry. And you see you know throughout the whole year then to be able to sit there and see a win on dc floor was crazed like it was motivation for us. Like la dodgers finished off fifty forty ninety like noses or like that was that was firemen win the hand like to see them celebrating. Get their trophy man. Like that was it was motivation. You know it was still it was dope for you to be out there. I think it's important you know for all of the nba guys. Like i saw no chris paul and everybody everybody is supporting wearing sweaters buying jerseys and all that stuff i think it's it's imperative you know for for guys like yourself and everybody likes us to to support them publicly and really promote and help them you know road game and make it what is supposed to be for now. And he's got gave so much mandy mad. He looked people. We lime indie miles banned women basketball fan not part of this new movement whereby we ain't doing this since we were in high school is the is the practice with the team the minute it is at all like i've always had a relationship with our team like i like i is are we share the same facility we crossing paths like what a way role trainer on this is i definitely encouraged all i play every team owner need to have a wnba split up. The i go to halt. They go to the same hall of fame..

"Of pe- who is still the off-season work. Because i watched your game real closely. 'cause you know like i say from the crib and i always try to make sure pants to my guys. I see how you'll game we've all. I'll see how some moves that you didn't do the previous year before the next year you doing dribble wise. I'll see how you dribbling skills than got up to par how you can go through screen split screens and do even more than us doing us coming there. Who has still. The work ethic told you like in the gym and get. This does credit. My parents i was praying to my parents for their mom out. Outta who and our sal. Welcome to my junior year. She was my workout coach until drew hannah. Who worked out now. That's when we started working. When i was a junior right up to them. My mom was the one you know. I would have thirty. Have a great gaming literally should take me back to our home and say now we right back in june and so she pushed me beyond measure like she pushed me to the limits. I wanted to quit. Nobody's ever done it. She's the only person in my life that really made me want to quit the game of basketball because of how harsh she pushed now her twenty seven years old. I understand that. I got two young boys. Now damn i get y you push me away idea and to see my confidence now and i feel. That's what i credit everything to now Miles like it's just my confidence. I put in work every single summer. I've been doing these moves in high in trying to do on you know through college. Rented your role you. You have a role when you get those opportunities. Don't always come in. So i credit coach brooks for this as well. Because when he took over he let me handle the ball. There'll be more he said. I want to come over combo. Guard point guard slash two i as a strictly off ball gore and so once he kind of gave me the green light. I was like okay. We'll you really gotta tap into your hand. You gotta really do it and a lot of it is just trying shit like i literally go out in the game and i'm like i'm not gonna know unless i do it right and so i'm nearly two probably wouldn't coach brooks's offers year. That's when i really start okay. I'm just trying. Like i will lose. All time will rip sometimes. But i'm like okay. That's what i need. That's what i say. Kinda feel like part of your real ascension where you took off it kind of happened by default when john got hurt because just being able to be responsible for that much uber like before when he did. You don't even get to expand and do as much because y'all dynamic duo on y'all doing this. But then that's when i saw like i can remember telling denies telling drew. Good my nine okay brad. Beal had list to them. Like you know what i'm saying like you'll handle the bobbin just like okay now i could go forward you. These like was like okay now. My running mate gone so now i gotta assume higer responsibility to and it was just like you just morphed into what you are now iran as so best exactly what happened in is unfortunate is the worst like john had kind of like a two year spurt where he didn't play like so he was hurting exactly two years ago and that was really the first time i had to crack the shell. I okay right at the end of the ball. You gotta be more of a creator. Learn how to read defenses. Pass the ball out of it. You know what i'm saying. Ankara for yourself is so that was another. You know role diversity. Because i've never been in that role right and we weren't that good either without john and so you know what i'm saying now a lot of the pressures on you and you got to be able to go out there and try to figure it out and try to help him win said at first. She was a struggle within the second year. I knew what to expect. I knew teams double tamie on. New teams is trap. Me on new teams go have hands that they best defender on june nami on new all that it was coming so i was going to be more prepared and it was just a matter of being more confident. Like trust in the work ethic In all as michael jordan quote that i love you always said. I don't feel nothing because i trust the work that i put in like. Like if you trust whatever you know the work that you put in summer you believe in you. Continue to master in you. Just go in the game with confidence you good and plus i gotta feel like a part of you is like a kid in a candy store like because you know all of us go through our career. Won't the beat a man wanting to be asked to do this and asked to do that and get that responsibility and then like here. You why you know you've been doing all of this doing all that and like you said it's the worst case scenario because you'll boy. John hurt but at the same time somewhere we true to this. This is what we do like. A part of you is like relishing is like year and then it's like you say you're going out there trying to try stuff like once you start having success. I know that had the feel like you're like your sound like i'm this. I'm out here a hundred percent and you gotta show up because everybody wants to beat a man to this demand right exactly and everybody's bill for not everybody can handle the pressure that committed like win lose. Draw show fall. Yeah and that's what you gotta learn something you gotta excel some. You got to deal with the media. Some you gotta deal with do teammates. Thank that way like it's a lot take to being a man and so a lot of times you know you get situations where you've got young guys on your team. Who wanna be that. And let's say you go down. I get hurt. You know now you gotta be thrust into their role in you struggling. You know what i'm saying. You see it ain't that easy to do with ain't just like any like i could just snap my finger and i'm just out here. Just doing what. I do like modest tomlin. Bill took time to really. You know what i'm saying. Perfect and so. Do that help you with your like game as mick like you'd be game as like a point guard now that you had a ball yo hands so much that you know like i will. We planted his game. These guys went up eight. Let me come down and get a little more. Let me get these these guys involving and so forth on for show like his the game. Slow down from like as a you know as you get older in the league you become everybody..

I loved illinois because bruce weber was there that was at ohio. State think they just wanted national championship probably the year before obviously do kansas and i love florida right because they won't back the back not too long ago so that morning in my head. I know i'm gonna floor because of what you say. Gee you said he keep it real. And that's how he always been with me. He said when you come down here. I'm not guarantee you're gonna start. I'm not guarantee you're gonna play a lot. I'm not guarantee you're gonna get a lot of shots said which you will work hard every day you will get better and you will become a man and i said i can rock with it and it was already five guards there. Five five guards and people are going to be like crazy right. It was three upperclassmen to transpose. One guy was my age. We at six right in so early that morning. I told my mom said.

High school a nothing kansas right down the road for hours I wouldn't go to mizzou when going to slough right so kansas the biggest clue right down the street attila She jumped for joy. I knew it. I knew i get on that stand. I look at them. Hats picked up the florida head. And then you told her you gave it a night bogo on. You might have been different. You woke up one the them go to hit the cans daylight right in the back. But i knew that. If i went to kansas i would have been babies at a new student in there all the time i knew i would want to come home and easy for me to come home. So was it when you was up there in that moment like did you like. Would you go through the whole day like in preparation like kansas. Kansas kansas dan. You just got up in their new like and you're on your heart. No so we're not. I told her that because she kept asking me. And i kept telling like i didn't know i didn't know you said what would have boys say what make go you know saying. Yeah we're gonna. Kansas day bernie breathe a little bit. Let me i gotta go to school. She pressed before i go to school. Some okay my mom was like now. You gotta get up outta here. You can't go nowhere around here. You can't go nowhere missouri no wearing illinois. You gotta get completely away from here exactly. It took that. Saying 'cause. I like st louis you but it whereas i did but i just seen larry come through and emergency the same. Like watching larry do what he did. It was just crazy. Also going fifties in college and forties and college. Like guys went doing that. No no no. Larry was different for a fact we could say. Was you wanna map. What was your draft process. Like i know draft was big whereas what was that when you decided to go out and at your first year and you just into the draft shaking davis with david star and you had them so i had david stern. Also you call it. I came in with some. Oh jeez to to do a second. David stern hanging some use in every year. You saying the process of all the rest of the guys before you go through and you know this is the path so i was israel as i would say embrace it. Embrace is going to be my favorite word us. And that's been my favorite word that i've learned to like a to my life. You know embrace every step embrace every moment you know what i'm saying so with the draft process. I didn't decide open to the last day on the deal out there right. I was in nerd. I love school right at a four point. Oh a high school. I went to college. I study biology premed. So i wanted to be adopted right. I had So on top of that. We made it to the elite eight. They year my freshman year. We were that close to megan into the final four and championship. At a really good. Everybody was coming back. Maybe two guys so we were going to have a good team. And so i really contemplated that because i love the win. Nearly the last day coast. Donovan looked at me. He said as stayed out of the process is law. I didn't sway you. Stay at inspire you to leave. He said i can't make a top three pick comeback to school. 'cause i was projected top three and like a lot of people's b. What did you even thinking about. What wise even contemplating mom really say she. She literally told me she said you go into the league. You're not going back to school. Madhu that that being on a huge. She said you're going to room at school. This is your dream. Why are you passing up your dream right. She's like the opportunities in front of you. Embrace it you take you right. And i said i got so tell me this. What was your predrag process. Light rated top three whatever you just want to dinner so that you actually had to go work out for teams so i actually worked out. I did all the skill stuff i did. The meetings i did. Means don't count. that's that's like a dinner you know. You denies only two or three workouts. Everything else he would welcome around on. Uh place we didn't have. I don't think we have up. We weren't playing lives. I think they cut the live out my year. Has we're doing shooting drills and stuff like that so you want working out against other players. You might have meetings and stuff to now now. That was all you could do. That's like a you worked out against other guys when you had the individual workouts for the teams so like i only had three workouts. So i worked out for cleveland cleveland charlotte and washington. So you knew. Washington pick you less while story writing so draft night. Which is the biggest blessing area so draft night as my birthday. I turned nineteen. Oh now doesn't have anybody. They had a draft so turn. Nineteen and. I'm sitting at the table in my asian is literally saying it can be washington or cleveland.

Like i know you love football refocusing hoops and that's and ever since then my knife. You're you're to rock and say look. I know when you demand and saint louis like teams or purred teams or common double team and all that stuff. They hold ball is a lot of tricks of the trade. The ball how was on hoda ball. I'll tell them no shot clock they hold the ball talking about skull at the game might be forty five or forty three of saying it might be thirty nine thirty six. It'd be low games because they'll hold the ball and that will mess up kinda use going average and all that stuff but like planning. They're in china. Starting to get the hype. Get to the point. You got thirty 'cause Using the era where we say a uteem's on espn downing elver. I was watching you on. Espn i'm like the he'll is i'll be to look at it was you and Being was it was being lamar. Well it was him. It was those behind. You enjoy your bird colony me. Watch by these young boys from the crew and the first thing he played on. Espn is definitely an air. My era was crazy.

We had guys in being too so it was tough like i loved it to me. A you basketball help make help shape my game shape who i was like. We dominated his saint. Louis there was no competition. You know what i'm saying. Get double team like you said teams to hold the ball but i still find ways to dominate like. There was. We stopped him. You know but when you on the circuit where everybody's good you know. They lay shoes of just like you. You know saying you got. This might feel me. They from the gutter just like you off another city so we'll be doing tonight. So that's like they're really shaped who i am like i plus our organization in itself recipes Our founder like he really. You know what i'm saying. He motive as men challenges in all ways and dan on the court. You know what would what would you. The eagles lose eagles. Okay okay okay. Long history of ball so we all history of which we we handed them. You know what i'm talking about. We did today. I'm familiar with the eagles coming out of high school like mcdonald's all american and stuff like that i know high was for me for me. Make you talk about the time. That was one. That's the next step then. The guys we seen before like take that next step. So you know you're going in the right. How was it for you to to get honored to be. you know. Top graders in the country and has it was a blessing man. Because i wasn't always a high rank kid like i had to grind that out to earn that deserve all of that and my senior year. I was gatorade national player of the year. The mcdonald's game and so you knew once you make the mcdonald's games like okay literally. it's on it's all you know what i'm saying. The trick it off with a mega happening that like now. It's like go that way or the other way. The ball's in your court so you know just seeing alone you know rap sheet of saint. Louis guys that made it that was always motivational. My brother did make it and so that was provisional for me to make it have somebody in our family bill to make the game and those dope you know. I never make an a game. Jordan brand game played usa. Basketball two years. When i was sixteen. Seventeen onto bill medals was the be is seventeen so it was. I had l. of high school career man like i enjoyed every bit of it and all the accolades that came along with it was. I wouldn't have imagined. I would want him to be quite honest.

I finally had to compensate. He hit me with that. It's just like man you're gonna put me on. I got to know for being real like that. Tubby that you know that you the type of recruit i tell what you wanna hear. He tells me what he like. May look you coming at her. You know yo- spot.

What are we going to do with quiet. Leonard what did the legacy mean for quiet. Leonard what do we do with tyler. What are we going to be doing to team here. There's nothing that we can do to improve it bradley. Beal is not going to the los angeles clippers. There's no major upgrade that you can have. That can improve the los angeles clippers for next season if they lose four to the dallas mavericks. And i don't even think it's a situation where we're dealing with lack of talent.

A 142-Year-Old Science Seed Caper

"So now tell me about this guy william bill. You said he was a botanist. What was the big question. He wanted to answer so it's really kind of a simple question. How long can seeds remain viable underground and you know the local farmers had been asking him if we keep weeding a plot of ground. At what point will the weeds stop coming up. And bill just didn't know how long the seeds of weeds could be in the ground and retain the ability to germany. So how did he try to figure that out. Well he got twenty glass bottles and frank to lucy. Fesser of plant biology at michigan state university. He told me that. Bill filled these bottles very carefully and although twenty bottles filled up with a sandy seat mixture and the sandy seat mixture contains twenty one species of plants with fifty seeds per plant. Now these plants were just common weeds and build buried the bottles in a secret spot on what is now. The campus of michigan state university. His plan was that every five years he dig up a bottle and see what seeds could sprout. Okay more math. So if it's one bottle every five years and they're twenty bottles. That means bill expected experiment to last one hundred years right and you know it's gone on longer than that. Beal dug up a bottle every five years until he retired in nineteen ten then. He passed the experiment onto a colleague who pass it onto a colleague and so on and these caretakers made the experiment last longer than ever intended just by stretching out the time between bottles so they went from one bottle every five years to every ten years and now they dig up a bottle every twenty years. I love how this has been passed on so the last bottle dug up was twenty years ago. Well twenty one. It was dug up in the year. Two thousand that's when frank who ski went out with the previous caretaker to the secret location. Frank became the keeper of the experiment at that time and he was supposed to dig up a bottle in two thousand twenty but you know the coronavirus pandemic right so you

Curry's 30-point run ends

"Out there that says rules are made to be broken. Well, records are made to be broken as well. Streaks are made to be surpassed or made to come to an end, and it just so happened. That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

"What what what he shot in the first couple of games now. He's tired of a bit since the start off seeing enough to make me think he's going to be cross special class in that regard you getting nothing a future stall and then you get anywhere you can pick from. Minnesota denies taught free. Protecting nothing is unprotected. The air off. Dormont be rolling that ottawa. You get in like a very good pick And a really good proven pyo riddick. So that's why. I like it From your perspective. I think you'd have to the juggle the thing lot. There's the potential of light transitioning the success of this darnest stay and lie Era in like carrying on A sustained period of success will just maximizing this show window that they'll have with. You'll have clyde coming back next year with bradley beal steph And dry moans this year. I think that team is genuine. Western conference finals contender. I wouldn't say The and then next year when you get k- back offing nasa genuine fondness contend to person. Yeah i agree which i think from that perspective. You can make the case that the warriors could do this next shoot. Could i would like them to is. What's i think. I think that be denied the next tragic and suggest. I feel like this will be where not where i lie down what my favorite one is because all i want to say that quite frankly well i was gonna say 'cause we we we have been on this for wall. Shall i the last one. I think diesen and just leave. The the vitug were a miami. Hey trait where the heat gave up. They let duncan robinson tyler. Here i wouldn't do any great with that. Cecil offing still leading up once. And the the pelicans trade. Where the wizards gave up with bill and go and return lonzo on the new foreign contracts jiji derek and then a of first round picks as well but that one's all in the same vein as the mavericks one. Nothing give me give tight you can just tell them together will die. Think he's decent along with. The warriors is i-i've involving the denver nuggets and said this. I ones interesting. It would be the nuggets getting bradley bill and in return the wizards would get markle. Jr. gary harris bow and then at twenty twenty one twenty twenty two furry first round. Pick i. This is probably my second favorite one because again a wanna see bradley on that sort of light teeter in taught contender if that makes sense where he can may be pushed him over the edge. A little bit Personally i'd like to see him in that position. Pau of me thinks style from a denver perspective now just to the bat maximizing the wind i for the garden state. I don't think you really need to do that for denver. Now if the seems to be like a a fading of by needs rush this and like get the. Because he's god could be taught contention. If the i'd like another pace and i think they could beat but a lot marco polo junior and all and these guys are still quite young Look on locked up for a bit. So there's no so oppressing issues that kate someone happy i'd love in your kitschy someone that would one away anyway. That's just my impression. Yeah saipa emmy thinks that you really need to do that and you can probably just see how it develops with multiple junior..

"Loss. No greater for trey kerby absolutely. We're not talking about terrence ferguson. On this show to leave things right. That guy played eighteen seconds last night. Didn't score for the seventy sixers but the stories bradley beal likely saying if you're going for six the a game seven of the nba finals loss. You'll probably be sad and maybe if you're bradley beal and you keep having these career highs and keep losing you'll be sad but something in common here bradley. Beal is still there. They'll scoring all these points but they no defense in washington. This reminded me of hawks versus nets from last week. Where the wizards came in. You know they're not gonna play defense. Seventy sixers said all right. We'll see if we can outscore you. They were able to do it because bradley. Beal wasn't able to keep it going there in the fourth quarter where to go mate. Well you go forcing it a little bit to be perfectly honest with you. They're trying to get in that sixty because he had that step back look like three but they only gave him to on embiid which would have given him sixty and then after that there was a couple of possessions that forced that i thought trying to get it to each smith was running down the line and kicked it out to bradley beal to to get the three which Again you team teammates. Try to help there. They go. I get to that milestone of course but they should've tried to win the game as well wishes of going in there and tried to get that lap would have brought them. I think within five at the time but yeah. That's really really. What it was for me is just like at the end of the game. The sixers the wizards were were forcing it and couldn't get loose. The sixers defense pretty good on as well they were gonna pretty much trying to prevent him from getting putting a sixty up on them so combination of things but that third quarter. He was just incredible where he I think he had twenty five in that third quarter and man. Some of the shots was often dan when he does so beautiful like when he gets his feet. Cetinje rises up mechanically. That is how kids should be taught to shoot the basketball. Yeah i remember when he was drafted exactly ray. Allen was the comparison. Li i love this This new phrase. You've been using a lot during the show this season a beautiful shooter of the basketball. I'm sure everyone would like to hear your top. Five beautiful shoots the basketball. Maybe something we can do in the future. But if you're the sixers are you concerned about this game that you gave up this. Many points to the wizards and to bradley beal. The only reason i would say a tiny bit is because the sixers are good defensive. Team ben simmons as an incredible defensive player being a huge point guard but one spot where he can struggle with these little tiny guards. And i don't think that's necessarily a place that the sixers have addressed right now. Simmons is still going to be their point guard. He's still gonna be their number-one perimeter defender but they don't necessarily have that guy who can stick a small guard ishmael. Who had a pretty decent second half or bradley beal. Who's handling out there on the perimeter. That was josh richardson. Last year. He was supposed to be their perimeter stop. Obviously he's gone replaced. Now with danny green and seth curry neither of who are as quick on the ball playing defense. So maybe that's something that could come back to bite them in the future plan. The team like the nets with kyrie irving or perhaps the celtics. Whenever kemba walker comes back it was little guards have always given the sixers problems because they play such a huge team. That seems to still be the case. It's fair you know these teams like the sixers though. They must see the wizards on the schedule. And even the hawks for that matter and just be like all right. Everybody's gonna eat tonight listening to pick up hoops. It's wednesday night. Hoops for us happened on wednesday night. It's like they're not going to be a lot of defense out here. Maybe a couple possessions. All right skied. You don't play an defense and pick up all that's enough now is just running gun and it must be There's i i guess. What i'm saying is i can see why it's easy to fall into that trap when you do play a team. That doesn't have a great defensive backbone. Well then you're like well. We can score a wilson. Do we need to put the effort in on that other end and they had a huge lead like you said they were playing really well and then they get their foot off the gas. And and be on the wizards got back into it. But it'd be tough not to fall into that lull. I think when you play some of these teams. I also have a question for you guys and for everybody. Joining us on the street team has has a guy scoring fifty plus in a game. Lost a little like What's the word. I'm looking for elite going more lackluster. I guess to you than it used to be or is that just me like i don't get as excited for even sixty game which is stupid. It's like it's become so it's not common but it feels like it is a lot more common. Yeah i think it does because the scoring seems to be a lot easier right now and the three point game is really changed things as well. Where so many people that just shooting the appeal like you saying the other day. It's not like he had twelve threes or anything like that he He he scored a lot throughout the game in in all sorts of ways. Yeah the two point of the three points and he got to the free throw line. But it's and i think james harden sort of made it a lot easier for god's to school fifties and sixty because he seemed to do it regularly for like two or three seasons there..

"And now the low has welcome to the low post podcast social distancing version. Whatever this is just continues. I am very excited to be joined after some technical difficulties that are. Apparently this is how. We live now by wizards. All-star Shooting Guard Bradley. Beal our you. I'm doing where I'm hanging in hanging in so I'm going to open by giving you the floor because I am one of the idiots who left you off my all star roster this year and I got talking to from your agent about it and then you and then you proceeded to score like a thousand points every single game after that so the floor is yours. Tell me why was wrong. And how angry were you about not making you look very angry about not making all sorts of you played angry. I was angry but I want to have played. I didn't say I've played angry because the at the end to make the playoffs star game was with was I'm not mad at you for for your your votes because for me. I'll never take a moment away from other twenty four guys Because that was me two years ago and in a year ago you know so. I can't sit here and take their moment away from Jason Tatum. You know and Donovan Mitchell in guys who got their first one you know so I I can't sit here and do that But for sure after like I deserved it for like my numbers in the way I was playing an impact that I had on my team You know show that that I should have been in law store. Nothing around the League show that I think the fact that the players voted me to actually start in the game itself was the fine itself should that I should have been but You know I didn't let it break me. I just continue to working you know. I'll always continue do. When did you become did? Did you start thinking about? I think if the season ends now we're currently where we are. You're averaging thirty point five points per game. I think over thirty. That's just that's just as bad as if you can average thirty when did you? Did you become aware of that at one point? Did it become something you cared about in? Oh so funny. Because my trainer Not Jerusalem. About two years ago two summers ago We were sitting in a gym and we were trying to figure out how to get all star game that. That's that's what we re trying to do. You know we were trying to figure out how to take our game to that level of being in on all star in a how to be a star in the league and you know we made those strikes those steps and then we were actually sitting there and address to. Do you think it's realistic from me? To to average thirty. And he said yes and no he was like yes or no honestly. That's why I loved her because he's a straight shooter. He's he's going to be honest with like an no. He's a like there's areas in your game that you need to improve on in order to even get the thirty. You know you need to get to the line. More need to probably shoot more threes. Which is all stuff. I've been doing so It's crazy because two years ago we set. We Sat. Jimmy asked ourselves can. Was it possible and we left the conversation saying yes and so for the last two years that was actually my goal was to try to average thirty game and sure enough like midway through the year. I started finding ways to make it easier from you to and sure enough it was like I'm looking at thirty again. I mean the scoring was coming so easy to like you would get in the middle of the second quarter and they will. Brad got twenty already. It's going to be another forty point game. I'm GONNA look like a Moron again for the twelfth day in a row for not putting them in the All Star game so so you're at thirty point five. If the season comes back you now have to average thirty. Do you have to be. You have to go like even if you just sit out you have to have so by my question. Is this though like you guys are ninth th right now but? I think it's a pretty distant night. So how does how does a player like? How do you conceive of like? Is it really worth it for me to come back after like a two or three month layoff? I five games when our chances of making the playoffs with five games remaining are are pretty close to zero. Do you WanNa do that. Is there some physical risk in that for you officer? You know it's always I mean especially now you know because we haven't been doing anything for Months going onto who knows a lot you know so I think ultimately not even just think that plays a factor for preventing legally out take. Anybody can just come back and go from zero one hundred you know and you know. Pick a riot. We left off is going to be some bad basketball. If that's the case you know so For us sending position wearing yes. Tough you know. I'm always optimistic. I'm always gonNA feel like you know we can do it. you know but eventually reality will shuttle and You know I think when that time happens. I think we'll look at organizational probably forgot what's best You know moving forward. They want the youngest to get the minutes in improve the experience You know for me. I always want to compete clay. You know so a blessing for me during this time because I actually have a gym in my house so I can. I'm still getting my shots. Give getting my work in a weight room. So hopefully I can pick by. We left off. Reduce Resumed season. Yeah I feel like every Max or like everyone making over twenty million dollars in the NBA. Who Doesn't have a gym in their house is now the first thing they're going to do. And this is over a building gym. 'cause I think Jaanus doesn't have gym or like there are some super duper stars. Don't have to. What do you do it like Steph? Curry's putting up a hoop in his backyard. Like what are you doing? Man Building is funny because mark. Bright before about this hobbes mark was like. Why'd you need Jim? Your House? Why have actors? Are you have a whole practice facility? That's what it's for. You know. Your House is to get away from all of that was like yeah but I really loved the House and sure enough. He takes two days later. I'll man those smartest investment you ever made like a gun in some now. Now it's been offering me so you know it's it's free blessings and the cursing his case. Because I will use it if if if it gets out of hand so so It's been a tough couple of years for the wizards tons of injuries Some turnover at the top organization. I don't think until until maybe a couple of weeks before you sign that extension before the season I think most people would have bet against you. Sign in the extension. Given the direction of the franchise Why would you come back? We did the easiest thing for you to do it but I think I'm in the prime of my career. The team's not going in the direction I want. I will be the single most appealing trade ship on the market this year. Let's do it. Let's just let's get out of here. Why did you send those exactly what you just said? These away That was granted it. It looks great but who's to say it's it's a guarantee on the other side you know and for me the whole summer last year. I just kept playing devil's advocate on both sides like I say what are the positives and negatives if I leave positive and negative in ultimately Affleck's staying positives outweighed you'd be and the reason being is because I had more control here if I have organization who basically gave me the keys. You know we're going to help. We're going to build around you. We're GONNA get guys around like if I go anywhere else. Granted it may be a good team but I will be peace. You know our you know who knows if my role will be the same Years I love what it is. I love books. I love what we have. Elevate young guys you know and I think the fact that we actually have guys who are committed to gain better you know. Granted we re top five in office. Our problem is we just can't guard a grandma so it will. It was all ugly Israel so you know our biggest thing was just you know how. How do we get better on that end and I think throughout the year? We've we've done that. We've shown glimpses of it up to go just an experienced We just have to you know. We had young guys who were talented than we have. You know vets who helped locher ministry throughout the year with it was just a few plays here narrative just piece together and I think being able to make some moves this off season in getting John. I think that feels a lot of those gaps that we there has been now for five years six years just endless noise of do Brad and John Get along Kandar coexist on the court. And I just read a player's tribune piece. You wrote maybe a year ago saying I read all that stuff. I heard all this stuff. Comedian John Coexist. I read it. I banked I put it in my my brain for motivation. But like what's the truth? Did you John Ever have issues? Disagreements like was there ever anything to it in. Oh I honestly think it was something media stirred up and I think we allowed it to kind of affect us in a way you know I think I wanNA say affect us but I think we allowed it to kind of inner rl. It was noise that was noticeable. We couldn't ignore it no so Eventually to the point to where we actually had a conversation that you have Low Do you have it? And that's what it was. You know. It was enough of the you know he saying this. He feels this way like if we have a problem. We're both grown man. We're not going anywhere you know so we is two things this either either. GonNa be childish about it you know. Continue to know who like avoid each other not talking out kind of lip whenever whoever started off stirred up or be about it in you know figure out how we can be better as as players For and it was just kind of weird. How all came about. But you know till this day even when I was back in high school I have no John. The first time I've ever met him was at a I remember to this day was..

"beal " Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show

"Love that at the end He's GonNa show you rather than tell you I like that Just so you know if you if you haven't listened into a lot of Bradley beal over the years. He is very religious in. There's always before any answer in any interview. He thanks his Lord and Savior. Jesus is Christ. It's it's the way he starts every single post game interview any interview I've ever brought me every every single scrum to every single you know media you know gathering That That that Aaron goes to a lot so He did mention disrespectful. And he's pissed. It's fine but you also said I'm GonNa try to get my team to the playoffs and I thought playoffs. Are you serious. And then I looked at the standings. They're only four and a half games out in a terrible eastern conference. They terrible defensive team. I mean just one of the worst defensive teams we've seen in recent NBA history. You know I like veal. Sometimes he drives me nuts wall to with the way he plays in sort of a casual way. I think it leads to turn overs and wasted possessions over the years and he's not a great closer as we've seen over the years you know Baheen John both at the end of games trying to take big shots but I do. There's something about him him that I like first of all. I think he's really bright and thoughtful. You know I've seen logger interviews with him. He's developed into an elite NBA score. There's no no way to really debate that he sixth right now in the NBA In scoring He's having a career year obviously At Twenty Twenty eight point seven points per game what he's averaging right now You know she's got a field. Goal percentage rough- roughly forty six percent. You know nobody is defending this year. beals always had the capability of defending like wall. It's never been consistent There's something about him though. Oh that I've always sort of liked personally. I think he's one of these guys I don't know that I feel that way by John Wall but I think he's really competitive but I think he's also self aware I remember. They played Toronto in the postseason in that second year. They were in the playoffs with wall and beal first year they beat Chicago and then lost Indiana and then in the second season with Randy Wittman. They swept Toronto in the first round before losing to Atlanta in the Eastern conference semifinals in a series that they really should have won. But John got hurt if you recall and that was the team with Paul Pierce first year. They had to raise a second year. Pierce was sort of the third guy with wall and beal Nate Gore. Tot All of those guys on the team as well and They had one game one in Toronto. Oh and game to They went into Toronto and usually in game twos. When you steal a game on game one the home team is desperate? And you feel like like you've already achieved what you wanted to achieve and Toronto took a lead in that game and they started running their mouth a lot And got very physical and chippy with the wizards and Bill went on a run to basically Take a big lead at halftime. And I'll never forget at the interview and I went and looked this up. I couldn't find the sound but I found the quote at Chris Miller grabs him as there As as he's coming off the court at at the break at the end of the second quarter and Miller asked him something about you. Know the chippiness and they're trying to really get physical with you and beal had just you know answered with a big second quarter order. And the wizards had the halftime lead and he said quote they think that were some. They think that we're some punks. They think they can push us around. But we're not rolling and and he walked off the floor and he came back and they kicked. Toronto's asked in the second half and won the game by eleven going away swept him in Toronto in the first two games swept him in the series. And I remember thinking you know beal. Maybe he doesn't hit every last second. Shot that you you'd want but he's come bigger in playoff games than John. Wall has more often. You know there's something to him in. I still think sometimes he sloppy is a ball handler can be man I think that is free. Throw shooting percentage of always felt this about him In recent years should have been higher in this series. Finally shooting it at eighty five percent I think is mother helped him with that and being serious I had. I had Scott Brooks on the show once last year and I said bills free throw shooting. Stroke is too flat and he just laughed at me and he said you're you're perceptive. That's what his mother thinks to in. His mother was a very good player. And we've been listening to his mother GonNA listen to his mother and the ARC's gotten a little bit better this year. Little not not as flat as shot shooting eighty five percent from the free throw line this year you ninety percent plus in his last several games so beal is I was glad to hear that rather than just read the disrespect because I think the context context to it was a guy that was pissed. There was upset but wasn't making it all about him His agent tried to do that. His agent had the following unquote Mark Bartlestein is his agent quote. It's just wrong. I think the coaches have sent a horrible message. He could've could've made the choice to be a bandwagon jumper and just go on and join a higher level team and he would have been guaranteed in the All Star game. But he didn't want to do that. He wanted to be loyal to his organization and the coaches in the NBA are holding it against Brad. That he was loyal to his organization. Closed quote it's a stupid thing to say a first of all. It's not true okay. The coaches didn't vote Bradley. Beal didn't snub Bradley beal because beal wanted to be loyal oil to a bad team in an struggling organization right now. It's not why okay. The team is struggling the reason that he's not in his probably because of the team's record and it's in the team's terrible defensively and he hasn't been great defensively but it's not they didn't snub him because he chose to be loyal to the wizards at stupid. And the other thing the agent said is you know to to be a bandwagon jumper and go on and join a higher level team first first of all. It's a dig at the wizards justifiable. But it's also you know suggesting that players are super selfish and that the all star game means more to them you you know. He could have made the choice to be a bandwagon jumper so he could have gotten into the all star game but he didn't do that. You'll give shit about the all star game. Did you see just just as a as a secondary add onto NBA basketball. Did you see the format changed for the NBA. All that was really weird weird. What in God's name are they doing so the the NBA All Star format has a completely different Different format For this year they're changing the entire structure of the basketball game. Now they still have the two team captains and they're going to pick their teams games and that's fine. You know like that kind of thing in terms of you know dividing the sides up and you know if you wanted to go international versus us when those things don't bother me but listen to what they're doing for the All Star game this year which I couldn't care less about but I I don't know why they care so much First of all the the teams are going to compete to win each of the first three quarters. All of the quarters are going to start with a score of nothing to nothing so the first three quarters are going to be twelve minutes and they're going to be individual games three individual games all right and then at the start of the fourth quarter. Are you following that so far. That's pretty easy-to-follow. Yeah okay first. three-quarters nothing nothing at the beginning of each quarter the winner of each quarter. Just everybody knows gets to Gets a hundred thousand dollars To donate to a charity of their choice so you have three quarter winners. Three hundred thousand dollars gets donated to charity For the winners of those three. That three-quarters stupid nothing. Nothing at the beginning of the quarter like we really care about what the score is that. They're not playing that hard in the first three quarters of the game. But here's the best part of it at the start of the fourth quarter. The game clock will be turned off and a final target score will be set. The final target score will be will be determined by taking the leading teams total cumulative score through three quarters and adding twenty four points the twenty four representing the late Koby Bryant uniform number once the final target score is set the teams will play an untimely fourth quarter in the first team to reach the final target score will win the NBA All Star game and then they give even example because you know what they needed to give an example. It's pretty hard for most people to follow after you're playing. Nothing nothing to start the first three quarters and playing the first three quarters. This is an individual individual games a unto themselves. You'RE GONNA have a three quarter score. They're GONNA add it all up from the first three quarters and give not at the beginning of the fourth quarter and so t may is up one hundred ninety five if you add twenty four to team as score than their target is one hundred and twenty four at the bad twenty four to the team with ninety five points okay. See I'm even views hold on. So if the cumulative score of the first three quarters is one hundred ninety five the final target score would be set at one hundred twenty four points okay. So now. It's the first team to get one hundred twenty four all right so to win the NBA. All Star game the team that had one hundred needs to score twenty four and the team that ninety five needs score twenty nine i. They need to get their first. Oh my God just dumb. It's dumb but this is also interesting because I obviously the thing is for Kobe. But that's also variation of this thing called the L. Amending which someone had basically people were getting tired of college basketball. The last two minutes just being foul L.. Foul South right so this guy came up with it's pretty simple but the ending and basically with at the in in his ills. This guy is professor for all his name. Yes Nikki Lem okay the first stoppage after the four minute you you know after the under four timeout basically once they under four time this was supposedly for college basketball..

"Dan You know so whenever he spoke we all shut up and listen you know because he knows what it takes to get there. He's a hall of Famer. He's a fifty time all-star like he knows would it. Would it takes to get to get there so for us. It was just like man like we. Just gotTA listen. He's he's given us the game and it's just a matter of okay going to go out there and get it done. He's always going to believe in ourselves. Believing in your team you know like in going out there and getting it done like no matter. What what that meant? No matter what it looked like no matter how good of a game you may have been playing like stand a moment. Stay in a game and in compete your tail off to the to the Internet attended a horn like he was always about that. He was always about that. You know he's always tearing his teammates on ruined for the next man Even help an auto in his young career develop him like it was big. Do you remember like maybe early. On a hard truth he sent to you to John to you as has a tandem that like you had to sit up and listen to. He told US specifically pointed us both out on the. We're only GONNA go as far as you to take takers and I think this is right before the playoffs. And he said he's like we we can sit here and talk about all these XS and Os and always as you know these plays and schemes but is on you to to to get it done to lead us. And he said I was like Damn like Paul are you. I'm waiting on you. Hail shot to try to get there but it's a that was that was. I think that was the moment for me. You know when he he he literally sat there and was like be John. Like you. Guys gotta you guys are going to lead us in. We're only GONNA go as far as you guys. Take us in the home. Because he's a hall of Famer telling you that I don't know if I've ever been around anybody any walk of life. Who has more confidence in himself? Self all pairs has you he He can be Stephan shooting if you shooting competition. If it's if you leave it up to him he believes that you know. And that's what I loved about it. I loved it about him. You know because that's when I look at my game in how I evolved. I'll I'll tell you a lot of people they're like well. What did you work on this off season? I was like well my confidence in just believing that you can do whatever that you WanNa do out there and that plays a lot in. I think it plays a huge factor until the game. You know if you don't believe in yourself if you don't think you can do it. You've already already defeated Paul. He was always that guy who he can go above and beyond no matter what would it may look like can be ugliest. Look in you know situation. And he's GonNa make the best out of it and he's GonNa come out over. Don't up that confidence and that feeling it's not like you tell me if I'm wrong. It is not just something while I'm Gonna I keep saying to myself so it's true it's to me. It's the preparation every single day. The confidence comes from knowing I am prepared. I have put the work in and if you have haven't you can tell yourself anything deep down. You know you. You always know and I remember quote from Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan said. They asked him just like do you. You get fearful. Do you get nervous before games or you know. Are you fearful to go out there and try new stuff or whatever he was like some. I've never played with with fear. He's I because I believe in the work in the preparation that I put into the game. I believe in the craft. You know my my work put into my crafty night in in the night out you know and so when I go out there and play. It's suzy should be second nature. You know this is. You should be confident in knowing that you know you've put in all the the energy to blood sweat and tears just for you know a two hour game you know. You've been working long summer hours during the day during the night. You know up all night just trying to figure out watching film whatever may be. You're dedicating yourself to the game and prepare yourself in a way you. You know that when it's time for the bright lights to come on you should embrace that moment in no that you're gonNA go out there and kill it. You were the most highly recruited player in the country country first team all America player of the year in high school at Saint. Louis why did you pick Billy Donovan and Florida could've played anywhere Billy from me he was only Costa. Didn't guarantee me anything. He didn't guarantee me. I was GONNA start in guarantee meals on play He didn't guarantee me I was going to like it. He didn't guarantee mails going to like plan for him because he was a tough coach and he was a whole at times but for for me. That's what that's that's what it was for me. It was one getting away from Saint Louis probably as far as I possibly could to kind of develop into a man of on my own and in the twos just having that trust with coach because out for meals just always developing a A relationship with the head coach like your assistance. They're always going to be your backbones. You know while you're there you know they're always there to pick you up and help you and help shape and form. You put your relationship with the head. Coaches is everything thing and we had a great one ever since I was in high school and you know I made my decision actually my sophomore year two in because it was just I believed in what he did you know. He put a lot of guys into the pros was pipeline at that time right when they won two national ships. It was like three three years after the three or four years after that he was recruiting me so it was still fresh Had A great team I love. I love the state of Florida period. And there's a no brainer for me. Honestly what do you think of the idea. Brad of a shortened NBA season. It's funny I actually said last night I think we should have sure season for like eighty. Two is a long long time long. A lot of games a lot of games a lot of games especially spread out the way that they are. You know the the amount of the bags to foreign five nights like I feel like a lot of those things can. NB We can tame those. Would you be willing to give back some money to have to do it. That's thank. You gotta be able to do that so I think in a way. It's it's you know. I definitely respect the Jordan said of the other day. I'll pay you to play all eighty two. I respect that you know I think we're gonNA cutback we gotta be open to that. Well speaking of that. You've got practice off of a game in Boston here in Minnesota Brad. Hey Hey thanks for sitting down. I appreciate it a lot of fun bread moment. Thank you so much all right. Thanks for listening to this episode of the world's pod. A big.

"Watch. That's one eight hundred flowers dot com code. WHOA W. O.? J. Hurry offer ends Friday. What did you learn Brad? Ah about professional basketball by playing with Paul Pierce pose a true pro. I think the biggest thing I learned is that you gotTa work on your craft every day. You know we all know that as you know as hoopers Experts we know that but to see a vet set in his own even remember year was sixteen seventeen th year still be the first guy in Alaska to leave ice and his body Take Care Eva's body just doing everything that he was supposed to do at that age instill planning a high level for us. They're really hit home with me. You know I it really believe me snap out of it and realize like be you can really play for a long time. You can get multiple contracts if that's what you desire and just being around him for year was was amazing. You know true leadership skills like I thought pause a pure asshole like I thought he he hated everybody. I thought he didn't like people thought he wasn't a people person at all But it was the complete opposite. He writes for his team like his teammate years boy like that's just how he is. But if you're on opposite team you know he he not talking to you. He not messing with you. I've learned that and color develop that same mental. You know so. It's in a way in. He kind of instilled a lot of that in John. And I and our leadership in how we how we control things. We talked to teammates. How we try to gather the troops and get things going And how to talk to each other John and how how we approach it how we deal with each other. He helped us out a lot with that as well. So he's he's a he's he's a true legend he's a true he's a true pro. He's a pro's pro. You give me an example of that with Paul when you think back of something he said or did were you went. Wow I've never heard someone say that in a locker room or do a bunch of things jump out It's hard to pinpoint one thing because he's NBA champion. Dan You know so whenever he spoke we all shut up and listen you know because he knows what it takes to get there. He's a hall of Famer. He's a fifty time all-star like he knows would.

"A relationship in your life. That's maybe is unique as the one you have with. John Wall all the history. The growing together the ups the downs. You love the Guy Get mad at to get it and get mad at each other. It's gotta be different than anything else you you have. Honestly it's like it's like having another brother. It is like his members get on my nerves. I love my brothers to Jeff But they can get on my nerves. DACA probably get John Nerves and he probably he probably gets mind every now and then but then they were brothers. I like and I think that's one area of growth in which we grew together immature together is knowing that we needed each other to be good. We need each other to be successful I wouldn't be who I am without him. He wouldn't be who he was without me and I think once we got that grasp it it was like nothing anybody can tell us because everybody for a second was trying to pull us apart and say oh they don't like each other they you can see it. They don't talk they don't hang out and it's just like but there can be days or a week or that's true right that's for sure right can be. You'd be playing a game. Oh Damn Johnson Pazmino borders. Okay are you gonNA let carry over to the next play or carry over to the next day and it's like we never let that happen and it was just whenever if we if we had a problem what each other which is very rare. It was very rare. I think people kind of gas did a lot more than what it was relationship Because he's he's like like I said before he's a brother to me and I've been known him since I was in high school. He was in college I can remember to this day coming to a few tournaments watching me. Hey you and and to see to get drafted here and be on his team. Just US grow together. It's definitely unique. You know because we are two different people totally opposite you know. He's he's on that side of the spectrum. I'm on the side. You know we make it work you know with great teammates were good friends off the court. It has his injury and being away from the court for a very long time. How has it impacted the dynamic relationship? I think think it's improved actually because she's You know this is the first time. He's maybe like a almost humbling experience in a way offer like anybody in that position with this type of injury that it's it's going to do that you know it's it's GonNa Humble you you know. And he has he has he has a good base. Here's a good support system you know and I'm a part of that as well and for me because early in my career. That's what I was. I was injured. I didn't play a lot of games. And so it's kind of crazy to see. You know kind of flip but you know I feel like our work. In our preparation in our our leadership grew together. You know our commodity grew together. We just continued to bomb. We continue to. Luckily he continues to push me challenges. Me when he's on the sidelines watching a game. He's like okay. I see this this this and that you know because I play a lot more point now than when he was here. I wasn't you know I'm I'm running to straight up. So when he comes when he's not out there it's just okay be you know this is what I see. Maybe you should try the. That's where we are in this constantly getting stronger Linden better every day in this league. The attention sort of moves around. There's certain teams certain markets certain tandems. UH-HUH I get a lot of attention and then it it kind of comes and goes you guys were in that microscope a lot. Because you're good. You're good team. You are arguably the best back court in the League weekdays compared to you in Portland. Cj was younger than you guys were more advanced. When that's gone? Is there a different kind of scrutiny. Every day to what it was like then versus now when your team's not good it's almost like hey beal had forty four last night. He's doing everything he can for that team. But there's a day to day scrutiny. Need that is gone. When you're a rebuilding team in an outside world? Yes me personally no Because I want to win and I hate losing team as no that But I can definitely see how you know it can be kinda minimize kind kind of kind of like accepting that culture accepting. I actually was crazy. I was telling my team is last night and I said we have to get a win soon so because eventually you develop the mentality of mayor goes another one comes around the one you know no matter how are we may compete. We can compete with the best of them. We can score four hundred fifty points. We've shown that but it's okay. How do you win a ball game? You know and I think just being able to develop those constant habits of winning habits on the court. They're going to help us in many ways. You know. I think what you have shown people and I think it's become more frequent in recent years. Listen it is easy to be a franchise player to be the franchise guy when you're winning and go. It's going well and when it's not going well. Aw It is not easy to have to answer the questions every day to live through the losing all the responsibilities that go along with it. It's easier just to say you get me somewhere else. That's the toughest part. That's that's definitely the toughest part because when I come into when I came into the year I knew that especially initially when I signed my deal I knew that a couple of things wins are going to be on my back. Losses are going to be on my back regardless gorillas if I like it or not. You know I'm thrusted into this position of okay. You know we win. You know people are GonNa lift you up but if we lose people are GonNa Bash you you know so you have to be got to prepare for it. And so that's that's the thing that a lot of people don't really know you know behind the scenes. Don't really understand the responsibilities and basically what type of leader you have to be you know and for me always tell myself this whole year for me. It's just about patients. This is being patient. You know being patient with my game being patient with where we are as a team being patient and understanding we have young guys We have a new system. You know everything. Everything is new for everybody. So that P. Word is going to be very adamant for me throughout the whole year. Do you sense among your peers in the league. Think that there's a lot less patience among everybody anymore to go through your own through other situations that what you're doing that is not an abundance around you for sure it's not. Why do you think that is i? Don't know because I think in today's Today's game like granted everybody. Everybody wants to win but I think everybody especially a lot of stars in the League. Guys won't help you guys. Don't WanNa feel like they gotta go play forty minutes a night just to get a win. You know a lot of guys. Don't feel like that some do like James will probably go play sixty minutes a night if you wanted to you know. That's that's how he is so a lot of guys are different. You know but For me it's I'm I'm like James Like I want to go play a lot of minutes and try to win. This is this is who I am. You Know L. A. Granted are times of change to where guys team up guys. WanNa you know. Do what's best for them. You know knock on it but you know at the end of the day. I'm a firm believer sticking out to know still what you got you know. I feel like it's a better. It'll be a better feeling at the end of the day knowing if I win a championship in DC way more weight in probably way more power than if I left and tried to get one when you thought about that and have seen it. Do you look at what happen with Dirk in Dallas and say I want experience what he experienced. I bet that's what I imagine it feeling like being in one place your whole career. You know seeing Kobe do do it seeing dark dude like we played Dallas the first game year dirk has his own little logo on the Dallas floor in a literally had a moment with it like I was looking up to him like he really changed the game. You Change. This city changed this team organization like and he's one of the greatest ever play in. He played all in one once one city. So I I definitely think about the definitely wait waiting on my decision. You know to sign back just being legacy guy being being one of the best franchise please here and you know that stuff was all important. Him mm-hmm hey guys when you're as big of a basketball fan as I..

"I can't right but but here's the thing here's the thing though if you're the kings and they're trying to get Bogdanovich done now to what is the Max that or is the most valuable you know I do think that's Fox and that's clear I also think we yeah he might not be thrilled with with being a six man there that is exactly what I'm hearing so let's see what happens right but Jack Jackie I mean I don't I don't get the feeling that Jaylen Brown well you tell me you think he wants to sign right now I feel like Jalen Brown for years I the last guy they extended on a rookie deal was you have to go all the way back to Rajon Rondo they remember that and that happened at the Buzzer Philly the night that drew holiday scientists extension and Doug Collins I was out I was talking to him in the hallway after the game and he was I mean he he may not have been being on a percent truthful but he was like oh I don't know if it's going to happen you know we we made him a fresh offer before the game etcetera and they ended up within an hour and a half he had signed an extension in Philly that was strange with these guys are playing these games with it with Hanover their heads but if passes with with healed I think he wants to sign it I do think it wants to happen but if but if healed signs it watch what happens with Bogdanovich not not immediately and in the short term if he'll doesn't the kings might you know and he's making noise about one new home and all that their best moved in might be to explore the trademark for him obviously you gotTa get past December fifteenth when whatever forty percents lease available but they might be better off that point moving on from healed getting value in return in committing a Bogdonovich is starting to third place they don't have to do that they don't have to do that because see my my experience with all these GM's when you talk them around this time of year when you're talking about these extensions in when you talk to the agents everybody has enough everybody has an idea of what the numbers and the player knows how much he can swallow intake and the team has a number that they'll say okay we're not gonNA pay him this upfront but if a team makes offer sheet will go this far to keep this guy because this is the finite value we feel he has and if seeds that we gambled and we lost but these guys are so good at monitoring the market that rarely happens it really does oftentimes there's an there's an offer sheet made and they've decided what the price is for buddy healed or Jalen Brown or whomever else you WanNa talk about they've got it all mapped out the leader match it or they'll move on because they've already established that number now in the case of buddy he'll wouldn't it be nice to see him another year before you as the Sacramento Kings commit to that kind of money I think so yeah well especially since both Bogdanovich and he'll be restricted it gives the the kings a little bit of you've got to leverage it's interesting I mean I don't know how much of a relevant situation the kings are going to be during the course of the season but it's something definitely to watch over the next seventy two hours see how that plays out you may know more about the NBA than some of us on this podcast you may know more about the game and you know you may be right that's why I think that you could probably put your money where your mouth is and how would you do that well you would do it at draftkings because you put your basketball knowledge to the test with one day fantasy basketball at draftkings right tip off the season it's going to start next week and you can start doing it at draftkings immediately they're giving you a free shot at one hundred thousand bucks with your first deposit when you sign up with the Code Hoop that's H.

"The Lakers the Lebron James Needs Anthony Davis the reason because we're not talking about all time we're talking about Lakers great you're talking about right now a three time champion who has the nine NBA finals he's no he's not even in the discussion on the Mount Rushmore of Lakers law because Lebron James One year in La the playoffs and so the fact that the matter is that they need each other for the same exact reason we can't put that on Anthony Davis like Oh he needs Lebron the broad needs desperately do not led to the fact that Lebron Tom is running up his basketball mortality is going to come to an end much sooner than later compared to Anthony Davis simply by attrition industrial birth certificate so when it comes down to is you look Lebron James You could say the same thing about him that you're saying about Anthony Davis but when you talk about Anthony service his level of greatness as talent is comparable to anybody you're right in terms of what he needs to accomplish and obviously being on a court with Lebron James is going to go in to provide the assistance that's needed but I don't think there's a shot that Lebron Anthony Davis ends up and Lakers Law to that degree because when you talk about Kobe will you talk about shack will you talk about magic we'll you talk about Corinne your talking about at least three championships Laker's uniform I mean you could we pay them to Jerry West Silhouette who's got one will chamberlain where one with them you can do that but when you talk about those other four guys that I mentioned excuse me I don't know how you get to that discussion got a minimum of two three championships Laker's uniform by the way it's going to be tough and the question was not who needs who more that's a separate question the question is as a D. Need Lebron Lakers great and I'm saying right now he does if you want to expand the discussion and say who needs who more I think you can Gitte argue that Lebron needs ad more as a laker right but then step back even from that lebrons place in history of security is one of the greatest players ever he's like Nipping Michael Jordan's heels it doesn't get better than that unless you're Jordan himself to his legacy is secure much like will chamberlain before he came to the Lakers now he did wind up winning chip but even had wilt not one in La he's still one of the greatest players ever on the other hand consider this Stephen ad as a package best power forward of all time but he's never gonNA pass Tim Duncan if he's sitting on zero chips Tim Duncan's five and by the way could overlap with another great lake or in other words gronk could be the first half of his career he could attract another superstar for the second half and keep winning chips if he gets at that level far far far be for me to say this to you but you are talking too much and you are bypassing the headline the big headline here you that's something that's very very important to discuss Lebron James Legacy secure not so fast yes your three top chance CBS in non NBA finals appearances but if what happened if what Max has predicted happens that might tarnish legacy if linnet rose up in La and wreaks havoc and bus Lebron's but in the process of going another championship and third NBA Finals Mvp. Like you stated I'm sorry Lebron legacy you just brought a compromise not no I'm not predicting that I'm predicting the Bra will win the MVP he will win the title the will wreck shop and remind more minutes than anyone who ever lived who still an elite player including Kareem abdul-jabbar and it's toward the end of Kareem's career some inferior center got the better him because he was ancient that did not count against Kareem and Lebron James at this age having played this many minutes this many titles the whole thing Olympics everything if the best player in the game coli Leonard gets the better of him in the Western Conference finals the Bronze Age that does not tarnish his uh snow his age and he looks that way at the beginning but if he's ball and then he's an MVP and he's wreaking havoc all these along but they're runs into walk gets his Baja waxed we've got a problem nice these are the three out in La all next week the battle of La Supremacy Tuesday. It's going to be Lakers clippers I take will cover all of it will much more into this but I have a little news for you we're talking about Bradley beal yesterday with one of the top free agents for next year off the Arquette we had a bomb Adrian Rescue tweeting this morning that Bradley beal is agreeing to a two year seventy two million dollars extension with the serves stephen a your thoughts on the bill extension Michael Goal assists I'm incredibly sad for him he deserves every penny he's a star he's under appreciated he's one of the best guys you'll ever meet in the league and I'm wishing Tommy Sheppard nothing but the best of luck but he is literally all the nation's capital has when it comes to basketball John Wall hurt not expected to be available this year Bradley beal is going to be a part of an absolutely awful roster my condolences to him and all those wizards fans that are coming to watch them this year I wish them luck by the way my feel jemaine stephen a it was like what are you doing wasting your prime on the other hand you have to tip your Cap Number One I said Zion shouldn't play equipment he said no I wanna play good you do what's in your heart right Damian Lillard I'm not trying to join anyone I wanNA stay right here in Portland to bring it and if you never wins a championship that doesn't count against him for staying and trying even though they don't have the squad that some of the other teams do and here Bradley Beal's doing the same thing this shows a lot of heart whether or not it's wise by how you are if someone else thinks is one thing but if it makes him happy I tip my cap he's trying to get it done in DC instead of turning tail and running somewhere else in joining a team hats off to him I just feel sorry for him because they're gone stink they're going to be at least they got the nationals full showtime mahomes chiefs looked to end a two-game skid at mile high unfortunately mahomes is still hobbled with ankle not to mention the many other injured chiefs Kansas City favored by three we know Denver is a difficult place to play Max tough one for the chiefs will very tough I I'm tempted AAC Denver in an upset I can't pick against mahomes and the chiefs with tyreek Hill back but it's going to be a very tough game vic Fangio's defense has come around have to quality wins in their last two games I mean you could say you can question the titans and but but those teams have at different times in the not too distant past look like decent enough teams and the Broncos have beaten them and the and the main thing is they're not giving any points now you take the flipside Steven A. The chiefs can't stop the run like the broncos are running wild but they're solid in the run game against the team that can't stop the run and how you know if there's a blueprint for the chiefs what is it ball control so defense solid running game against hobbled quarterback does have his top receiver now but can't stop the run a bad combination particularly with Denver home which is hard place to play just in terms of the climate and what that does the guys so I take Denver because I just believe in Mahomes at crunch time but this is a very tough game you know what I can understand your point with that because Tom Opposition in their favor about three victories came within the touchdown of each other we get all of that here's the flipside you got a quarterback and Joe flacco who can't move he's turning the ball over seven times six games I believe then you've got the situation on the defensive side of the ball where this starting sixth string quarterback for act prone to turning the ball over at least at this particular junction the season both scenarios work in favor of Patrick mahomes having the ball I don't know if he should be playing an three minute Philip Lindsey running the football if you're denver that's the only shot you have of making this game interesting outside of that I don't see it I don't this is going to be able at all even though it's going to be.
