"He didn't care for. That is not a good rebound being team. That might come out. This year is finally not a good rebounding team. If they could only rebel better but i loved really thought like that might be like a four dimensional chess way of coach k. Trying to see if you're paying attention we were afraid of disappointing him. That not only not only that we would get carver high treatment or the oak ridge coach treatment. But that that we you know we didn't want to disappoint them and so if he asked us to do something we wanted to do it but but we were thinking that way that that is a test this is. What do we do here.

I'm a long way that you couldn't have couldn't have spread on your bagel. otherwise it was a and counted against which which school was serving bagels like reserve all of them. Yeah you that's all you could give to the players like before a morning workout or something like that eight goals. Yeah the player. It was so stupid because you'd have to call us a schmear that we would call compliance and say. Can we give the player stereo. Nope can't do it. That was that was the way it worked and some schools use the like. I used to hear from coaches about this stuff. All the time Some schools would would say we have three people. Call the incidentally separately and we get three different interpretations. We just picked the one we liked. And that's how screwed up things were. This was my favorite. This was years ago to school. I can't tell you the name okay. schools got parking rules so seniors get the best parking course Followed by juniors and the like so. Junior basketball player is rooming with senior manager. Junior basketball players car senior manager doesn't senior manager who's who's is roommate says. How about this. I'll get a parking pass and you can use it. You just pay for it. The end of the year good They do that. The junior goes into the junior basketball player goes to the versus office to pay for the parking pass but is on the on the the senior managers name so somebody in the offices want. Why are you doing that. That's kind of weird. So they just call somebody and compliance compliance while we'd better check with the nc double a. They suspended the player for. I don't know how many games seven games because they deemed the senior manager a member of the basketball staff so that was an impermissible benefit. And you're going wait a minute. He's living with a member of the basketball staff like that. That's so stupid. I couldn't believe it. And but that kind of thing has been going on for one hundred plus years now maybe within al and the fact that the players. Maybe we'll start st- will begin to stop all of this ridiculousness and There's a a tennis player from umass and named brittany collins Who found out receives professional tennis player. I've found out recently that her team all their records were vacated because They received a two hundred fifty dollar. Credit offer a phone jack on a rotary phone in their dorm.

"A beast Only five three but plays much bigger The problem is he comes from a small town in nebraska so he'd have to cut family ties occasionally violent although his harris perfect go soo performance by jay. Bilas back then. We're back here on the rich eisen show with jay bilas in studio on this richeisenshow radio network all right. I saw you even instagram. The south because i follow you on instagram as well Instagram dot your appearance on the white shadow back it. How did you wind up on the white shadow back in the day. One of my high school teammates matt baker. His dad dick. Baker was the head coach at loyola marymount at one point and and has been an mba scout for a million years so back in that time during the seventies he was in hollywood as a an ex. He did a lot of work as an extra every movie. Back in the seventies that had basketball. Yes dick baker was like the official The referee and one on one like robbie batson all of the. I don't know if it's one on one for the fish that saved just about me you name it. I mean he's in the six million dollar man all these different things so he was a technical consultant for the white shadow. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy eight seventy nine probably He got our team on the show as the opposing team of carver. High and the plot of the particular show was one of the carver. Players was transferring to essentially this all white high school and He's leaving carver and transferred to our school and And so we were the players on the opposing team. We're all sixteen seventeen years old and had no idea that all of the actors that played carver high players were in their third. So we were talking to these guys. Are you know the director radio cut. And then we'd start talking to them. You know like like they went to cross down. Highschool rolling. Came my mom's picking me up after this home and guys lighting up a cigarette going. Get away from me. Can howard met him. And and you know salami and all these all those guys coolidge They great Aside from cooledge though none of them could play dead like they were they were actors so none of them could play and so they used to do these dolly shots where the jim they played in was on a sound stage. So there was you know it was. It was made up his tiny. Yeah and in order to dunk. They would have to jump except for coolidge. they would have to jump off a ramp Lot of lot of cuts to a shot going through the basket that they didn't necessarily make Which is pretty funny. I in a way as seventeen year. Old kid literally disappointing. Look at that number three and your program number one in your heart. Look at the oak ridge. Forward right there now you. You were being berated. Because i was laughing during a the coach that wearing your team. A new one was the opening of the show. So we're coming into the locker room. We just been beaten. I think and And the coaches supposed to yell at me. Yes and so They had they inserted our high school into so essentially. Our high school name had just beaten oakridge And so he's yelling at another player. And i started laughing. And then he turned it on me and And so it wound up in like i. It was foreshadowing for playing for coach. That was basically every post game speech for the remainder of my career. So you never laughed at a coach k. During the middle of a coach k. not syria. I waited till he left the room. And then we started laughing. Jay williams told about a time where where we're coach k.'s. Hip went out during During speech or something like that and he was down on the floor. He's had a few of those. Where where that you know. Like one time When i was a grad assistant he wanted to show the the team that they weren't going after loose balls like they needed to so. He threw a ball in front of in front of the team in the locker room and then dove on it and wriggled around. You know growled in this what you do. And then when he went back into the coach's locker room he dropped down on his knees and he's like some years old. If i did that. now i'd be interesting and so You know a couple of times have getaway the the thing. I laughed at most wi with coach k. And he is. He's the best coach and the best guy but He had a thing once when i was a player where he gave us the what for about. We need to have attention to detail. Like no detail is too small and we have to be able to tell each other tough things. We have to be tough enough where we hold each other accountable and if somebody makes a mistake we correct it and the guy doesn't get upset about it. He takes the correction all and and You know and attention to detail. So then he goes and then he says and now the specifically these three things we have to clean up and number one on the list was rebound and he spelled it r. e. b. o. Ub so billy king who later on was the president seventies. Nats leaned over to me and says do you think he wants us to point that out like attention to detail testing us. Here i go. Yeah you do it so say anything right the rest of practice. Every time a shot went up. We'd go and he caught on. He goes oh yeah. That's real funny. Good real funny..

"Most of them would get their asses handed but one but one of the one of the reasons. We're able to say that is because we don't know we don't have any data that's right because they're not allowed and you know like i think it would be very much the same. I think you'd have a number of players that would be able to go in and compete and make rosters and all that stuff but but just on the talent side. They would want them as early as they could get them because they wouldn't want they wouldn't want to wait and risk not being able to take trevor lawrence when he was a freshman or something like that. You know the reason that happened like you know college. Football is fifty years older than the nfl right and was established and the nc double a. Put a rule. And i don't even know how many years ago was seventy five eighty years a rule. Where if you worked in any capacity in the professional leagues you could you. You were ineligible to work in college so if you coach in the nfl whatever you couldn't come back and ever work in college and the nfl actually went to the ncaa on bended knee. And said please don't do this. You'll kill us before we get off the ground right. And they guaranteed him. We will not touch your players until they graduate. We won't draft him until they graduate and that was the way that we're knowing that changed like they didn't start the. Nfl didn't start drafting juniors because they thought well players of advance now now. They're ready and they won't ask handed to right. They did it because the usfl started drafted juniors that makes sense nineteen eighty-four and now we have nick saban. Yeah yeah exactly exactly. Jay bilas here on the rich eisen show. We'll take a break. One last segment I do want to stroll down memory lane that time where you took on carver high here in los angeles california. That was a big does.

"Worldwide leader in sports one of the best analysts in the business talk in college involved talking round ball. Good to see you jay. Bilas how i've been elevated to human that that's a good day for me elevated human actual human and i do have to say you know You have made a choice and this is a choice that we all make whenever we play golf which it does appear. You will be doing as soon as you leave here today. you went lime green on the top as long dream on for for shirt. That's that's the only one that was clean vacation for a while. I've also noticed on your instagram. That you've been playing a lot of golf as well which is fantastic. Played in about two weeks though. That's the longest period result. Well you've been busy. We we saw you were doing last week. And let's jump into A little bit of that before we get to the name image likeness. Whatever because i don't know if you wear You being in studio for our number two. I plan to solve all the problems involved in college athletics. By the time you leave here. It won't be hard. Don't you think now we can do one word regulate deregulate. that's over about. Let's start right there deregulate. that's it simple. Because today is the last day on planet earth in the united states of america in college. Athletics where name image and likeness laws will not be on the books and kids will not be. We'll we'll we'll be if you will not allowed to make money off of their name image and likeness likeness correct. Today's the last day basically So today's the last day that amateurism has at least a shadow meaning in our culture because the answer aa said for over one hundred years that college sports are pure amador and that players cannot receive any remuneration for their athletic reputation or for play and an i l. has been part of that sort of commercials and i o means name image likeness as you mentioned and that means being in commercials doing an add things like that Putting your name on a camp Teaching teaching the sport That you Participate in two. Young people You know giving tennis lessons if your tennis player right and using your name associated with it Now so that was deemed to be professional. So now the the nc double a. has given up on that and now they're saying our players are professional. Now we're still not going to pay them not now. They've made the distinction that the players cannot be employees of the university so they they've moved the goalposts dues a another sports metaphor right but do they moved the goalpost there but but amateurs his dad basically. It's and and so Tomorrow how many states have. I don't know many six. I think i read. It was at least that here in california florida right and and once you once you include florida i mean certainly in college athletic. Certainly in college football i mean. That's all she wrote. I mean the domino's are going to have to fall here. Well it's it's all she wrote. I mean california. Started all this when senator nancy skinner put legislation forward called fair. Pay to play act That's what started and it shows you. What competition looks like in america. As soon as other states saw the california was doing it. They're like well. We have to keep up and it shows what athletes are worth that. This is all being done because everybody's worried about access to players that that this is going to this going to give a recruiting advantage to one state or another so what the nc double a. is doing now because they got their tails handed to them in the supreme court Over the allston case Where they were again found to be a antitrust violator A serial antitrust violator. Now the nc double afraid to have any restrictions on athletes with regard to name image likeness at all. So they're saying Right now starting tomorrow you can. Any school can do whatever your state allows Or you can fashion your own. An i l. policy if your state doesn't spell it out for you and so they basically pumped yeah haunted well. They're totally unprepared. They didn't expect to lose at the supreme court level But they've they've had their heads in the sand for long time on this. This was coming and they haven't passed anything they haven't done anything. They wanted to wait a lot of wanted to wait until the outcome of the supreme court case and i don't think they expected to get at hand to jay bilas here on the rich eisen show especially with brad kavanagh chiming in with his own two cents essentially saying hey Everybody who wants to bring more litigation to show off the antitrust violations that the ncwa appears to be perpetrating on a mass level. Bring it because it you know it looks like they. They are antitrust. Violators on a mass level and players could get paid legitimately paid. Yeah they were headed so if you if you went back a little bit not to bore you with sort of some of this illegal stuff but all this stems back to nineteen eighty four when there was a case called the border regions case the oklahoma and georgia borderie. So that was the last time. The nc double a. was in front of the united states supreme court but that was a case that was brought by schools against the nc. Double as saying. You can't tell us how many times we can be on television yet. They used to tell schools. You can only be on television so often. Because they're worried. It was going to affect they'd over saturate. The tv market ended effect gate. Receipts like people stop coming to the games that the infinite wisdom of the nc double a..

"Cannot collude to slash benefits to camera. Crews to kindle aac quotes spirit of amateurism in hollywood powerful words from justice. Cavanaugh spring and jay bilas. Espn's college basketball analyst. Jay walkers through yesterday what did it mean to you. What's it mean to the sports world of the ncaa well it. It was a profound error in judgment on the part of the nc double a. to position the supreme court To hear that case because the the lower court ruling in the ninth circuit was actually pretty good for the nc double eight preserved amateurism and they the considers its right eliminate players compensation from schools and from third parties. So that was that was the first thing that hit me. Was how stupid and incompetent. It was for the aa to take that step. But really dan what this was about was. The supreme court took this case because there was a circuit split among federal courts with regard to how these cases were being decided. And so what the nc double a really lost was it's deference from the courts and the presumption that their rules were were were pro-competitive and so now they're going to now every case they're going to have to go through this rule. What's called the rule of reason task which means they're going to have to show and prove that they're they're pro-competitive aspects to what they're doing and not anticompetitive and like what you just read from justice. Kavanagh's continuing opinion. It's going to be really hard for them to do that. I don't think they're going to be able to and And so that was a huge mistake they made. I think what this does now is. It opens the door for further litigation. That's not just gonna be on your laptop to be about laptops and tutors and internships. It's going to be about name lightness and it's going to be about contracting with the university for pay and there's no. I don't think there's any way that the ended up is going to prevail on these cases going forward and the only hope they have is going on both knees to congress and saying. Please give us an antitrust exemption which you've given no other multibillion dollar business in the country please give it to us because we've proven that we can do this right and i don't think they're going to get that either. What if the ncaa you as a lawyer and said make a case for us..
2021 College Basketball Bracketology With Jay Bilas
"Feels like you might be the busiest man in america right now. So thank you for making some time for me man. I appreciate it but busiest mannered. America's this is the best time of year. So i'm happy to be busy. Jay bilas is literally and figuratively towering. Figure in the world of college basketball so it is about nine forty five pm eastern on selection sunday. You've been on tv all day. I've seen you offering wisdom's. I've seen you gas bagging as you yourself from time and again i'm curious jay. How long does it take you to fill out your bracket while we have to do it in about two minutes one. We're on the air during this brattle. G selection show. So i it's sort of the the first thoughts that you have and and you wind up picking an upset or to In each region in the first couple of days. But then i wind up going pretty chalky after that and And then i'll i write an article called the more than five minute bracket where i think about it for more than a couple of minutes and And i don't do any better. So i'm not sure that my My first instincts aren't are just as good well. I'm glad to get you somewhere between the first and second drafts of history. Because i'm staring at an empty bracket you have hastily filled out yours and i want to get into this because we have the top four seeds gonzaga baylor illinois michigan their top lining the four geographic regions jay. That aren't really geographic regions this year. Because everybody's gonna be crammed into indianapolis in something that feels bubble like is there one team among those four top seeds. That seems feels the most vulnerable to you. Yeah michigan Because of isaiah livers You don't know what this stress reaction and his foot whether he's gonna play and if he does play whether he's going to be the same. I mean machines a good team without him but they're elite offensively with him Because of how skilled he is He's a good passer. Good cutter good square. He's a terrific scorer but without him I think there are a lot more beatable if you will And they have a different. I i do think they have somewhat of a difficult path. alabama is the to in their region and And i think alabama has got a very good chance to to reach a final four What's what's the best thing. I think bobby for the the big ten teams as they're out of the big ten now and they don't have to they don't have to beat each other up and they can go take a swing at somebody else. And i think they're all gonna like that. So i wanna get into the alabama thing. You just mentioned it. They're sitting right below michigan as the two seed and jay. I'm still staggered by. I guess the following collection of words second-seeded alabama versus fifteen seeded. Rick pitino and iona. So let's take the first half of that matchup. I people know alabama obviously as a football institution the football institution. What they know about their basketball team. Yeah alabama is is really talented and really good This year in basketball. Their coach nate. Oats is a math guy. He is an analytic sky. So last year they shot ton of threes. He believes in free throws open threes and layups and And so they're not a lot of mid range shots taken But this year. They're they're excellent defensively. That may be the best part of their team is. They can really guard their long armed and athletic on the wings. They've got a player named herbert jones. who has always been a really good defender. He's six eight He's really kind of a point guard at six eight and he does everything. He's kind of a triple double type player and defensive player of the year. In the league in the sec. And the player of the year in the league And i think he makes them different. So they're legit. They could have been a one seed worthy of it but because of how good baylor gonzaga have been they were they were locks and then And then how. How good michigan wound up being and then illinois. I don't think anybody would argue with those four is number one seeds but alabama was the clear Fifth overall so the other
Who was Sirimavo Bandaranaike
"Today. We're talking about the world's first woman to lead as a prime minister. She defied all expectations to take her position and permanently changed the legacy of her country. Let's talk about CD Malvo Nike. CD Malvo Bundle Nike was born city map rap lot on April Seventeenth nineteen sixteen, and what was then known as the country of Salen. She was the eldest of six siblings. Both her father and mother were prominent in the Sinhalese community. That's an ethnic group that forms the majority of the population of Modern Day Sri Lanka at the time saline was a British colony. Cassation many of the top families in the country took on governmental roles and British names even said, he must father Barnes rat watt was named after prominent British general nonetheless, city must family care deeply about remaining Buddhist and preserving Sinhalese culture wherever they cut when city matern eight her parents sent her to a Convent Boarding School in Colombo the nation's capital under the British colonial rule. This was the best possible option for education. Still, her parents also took care to maintain their cultural traditions native language. When city finish her education she spent years touring the country doing social work including delivering food and medicine. She hiked through jungles and rough terrain to help organize and develop Bilas as a result, she gained a positive reputation throughout the island. In nineteen forty city my married a top government official named Solomon West Ridgeway Dias. Bandaranaike in a grand high profile wedding. The two were considered a perfect match. While city must husband played a more anglicized role in the colonial government city, my herself understood the needs of those living in rural areas. Said Ema, and Solomon had three children. Initially said he must professional role was largely that of an attentive wife. I nineteen forty-eight Salen was headed towards independence from Britain and city Mos home was packed to the brim with her husband's political associates, discussing strategy and the future of the country Solomon viewed his wife's role as a submissive one. Still she became a valuable political consultant. She was the one who convinced him to resigned his political position in nineteen fifty one. After he resigned he created the Sri Lankan Freedom Party or S L F R, which sought Sinhalese control of the country and a democratic socialist government city. Ma. Aggressively campaigned for Solomon in the following years and by nineteen fifty six, he won by a landslide and started instituting left wing and Sinhalese centered policies despite this victory, some of Solomon's political action. So divisions and tensions between salons various ethnic groups including the Tamil people in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he was murdered in his own private garden. City Mo was devastated even so she took action to fight for her husband's legacy. The very next year sitting you took leadership of the Party and was voted in as the world's first woman prime minister she would serve as the leader of the SFR for the following forty years. City must served as prime minister on and off over the next few decades prioritizing the same democratic socialist policies as her husband, she strived to raise the quality of life of her people and to reduce the overall inequality in her country. Following a win in the nineteen seventy election city. Ma introduced a new constitution that ended salon status as a British Commonwealth realm and renamed the country. Sri Lanka. Her focus on empowering Buddhism and the Sinhalese people alienated the Tummy people during one term in power. An uprising against her party had to be defeated with international military aid from India and Pakistan in the nineteen eighties. Economic troubles in the country accusations of corruption led to a crushing political loss by nineteen eighty-three tensions between the Tamil and the majority Sinhalese people boiled over into a bloody civil war that lasted until two thousand nine. Sumita attempted to repair the damage caused by discrimination against the Tamil but the divide was severe and her political power was waning along with her popularity by nineteen ninety, four city Mas Daughter Chandrika became prime minister, and then later the president of the Country Chandrika appointed her mother as prime minister but by then the constitution had changed. So the prime minister position was only supplementary to the role of the president offering little actual power. Serena remained in some form of office until a few months before her death she passed away on election day shortly after casting her vote at the age of eighty four. Though city Malvo's political legacy is complicated. She paved the way for future female heads of state and lead through political hardships with strength.
John Thompson took a chance on hapless Georgetown ... then worked a miracle
"Jay Bilas here because there's big college basketball breaking news this morning the death of John Thompson Junior age of seventy eight, one, thousand, nine, hundred, four NCAA championship winner the first African. American. Coach to take team to the men's College Basketball Championship his best player is now Georgetown's coach his son John. Thompson the third eventually followed him as head coach as well with Craig there in the middle giant for what he did for Eric African Americans in a giant with what he did in the game. Jay joins us on the Shell Pennzoil performance line this morning Jay good morning for those that may be too young or don't understand the scope of what John Thompson Junior meant to college basketball. How would you sum it up? He was a giant in in basketball both literally and figuratively, and he did so much for the game not only on the x No side that you did a substantial amount there. You know his Georgetown Teams especially when you got nineteen, eighty, seventy, nine, eighty through the early nineties they were a force and the best defensive coaches in the history of the game, his teams were very disciplined. Very smart and very together and that that's why they were so great defensively, it wasn't just that they were athletic. they were smart and disciplined. And almost went to the final four in nineteen eighty when John lost a a one point game to Iowa and that was lute Olson's first final four and lute Olson passed away a little earlier last week But John, Thompson. was that he was also fought for social justice before it was it was cool if you will. Think. You'll remember back in the eighties there was legislation by the NC double called proposition forty two. That put in a entrance requirements and they were disproportionately affecting African Americans and John Thompson and a game I. Believe it was Boston College got up before the tip and walked off the floor and protest with a towel over his shoulder and and you know he took a stand and took a stand on on multiple issues He was not always popular because the things that he was saying that time was really uncomfortable for for people to hear. And you can imagine I mean are people are uncomfortable. Now think how it was back in the in the late Seventies. Early Eighties one John Thompson was was setting a standard and with standing up on social issues. He he was a, he was a a great great person a man of of really high character and You know you don't want it to get lost what a great coach was but he was also a great man.
Mary Trump warns against a 2nd term for Trump
"On a night with every poll showing Joe Biden and a commanding lead and the latest NBC poll showing Joe Biden Eleven points ahead of Donald Trump. Mary trump told Rachel why she still lives in fear. Of. A second trump term in office. You write about that in the book as if you are genuinely fearful, that second term could be qualitatively more dangerous for the country than his first term was. Yeah. And I WANNA I wanna make something really clear. This is beyond partisanship. This is so beyond party. We need to be thinking about this as Americans. We need to be thinking about what who we want to be. As a people going forward I hear people say all the time. This is not who we are. This is exactly who we are right now. So. Continuing along this path, which is exactly what would happen if Donald, were to be elected in twenty twenty would. I absolutely believe be the end of the American experiment I do not believe there's any coming back from this. There are too many enablers who are for whatever reason can to enable him Bill Bar has gutted the Justice Department Mike. POMPEO HAS JUDD A. Gutted the. State Department we are in serious serious danger here. And unfortunately, that is no longer hyperbolic. That's just the way it is. Now, a veteran of the Hillary. Clinton campaign that won more votes than Donald Trump, but still came in second in the electoral. College Maxwell is with us. She is in MSNBC political analyst, and she is the author of the new book, the end of white politics how to heal our liberal divide surly, not let me begin with the breaking news of the night that Mary trump told Rachel motto that she has heard Donald Trump used the N. word as well as antisemitic slurs. It's the least surprising news of the day I'm but I do think it is important because I think what Mary Trump's book. I'm almost all the way through. It's fantastic and her perspective. Particularly as a clinical psychologist is interesting in it puts it apart from the other books about trump and the inner workings of the White House, in perhaps parts of his family, and the reason. Why is because it's really a validation of many of the things that were watching from the outside. Right the news that. that he has used racial slurs in private should be the least the rising news because of how he speaks in public about those same groups of people, and so I think what it does is it validates what many of us in the media in analyst like myself have been saying from the beginning Donald Trump is racist, and he behaves like a racist, and he talks like a racist, and he most importantly implement policies that deeply hurt. Communities of Color and bat is the the danger it all. Just heard Mary trump use the phrase beyond party that this election be beyond party because we just heard her layout, the danger of a second trump term filled with trump enablers. And doesn't that doesn't what married trump just laid out? Doesn't that alone? He'll the liberal divide at least for one day on election day. Look I think that the coalition. That will hopefully lead to Joe Biden. Presidency is made up of common sense, and like minded people who want to protect and preserve this American experiment as she said and want to preserve those institutions like the State Department and the Justice Department and the things that make America what it is, but also you know to my the point that I'm trying to make in my book. Is that the coalition that Joe Biden these? These is very much a coalition that needs to be intentionally engaged by the campaign going from today until election day, because many of those voters stayed home, twenty sixteen, who had turned out in twenty twelve, in fact, more many more million of Bilas voters stayed home, versus the seventy, seven thousand, who gave trump victory, and I think that's where the focus and be benefit, and the opportunity is for the Joe. Biden campaign.

Excited to be invited that. Doing. Yes I, mean, and I know we had a conversation even before we started recording this about how we are feeling in the world. Yeah, it's just it's tough. It's you know there's so many feelings, and funnily enough and I feel like this thing you get when you have wonderful clients I do. They have been asking me back, so we start off every session with feelings. Check in using the feelings chart. And just been like. Give them all to me, and then let's break it down. Let's talk about where it is in the body, but they're just like, but you have to hold on my stuff. And I know I'm not the only person you see the are you don't genuine questions. Being asked in I will not dishonor up and giving them an answer. And, other some people say that it's inappropriate and all that Miranda. Clients, ask I know it's because they actually want to know. sort of rotary questioned that you know like back in the day when we used to get on elevators with people you gotta be. Exactly, for small time, and that's something that I try to remove from clients on day one. So when I ask you how you doing. Tell me fine you to ask me. How do on the like now I? Actually care about what you're. Right so I want the fullness up them on the the rawness its beautiful I want to share that with you. It's ugly I. WanNa. Hold that with you. Whatever it is I want to be there with you in this space. Now I know that they're asking me legit question, so I don us now. Bilas turn like yes. He'll some type of way I kinda? Wish a bitch would. Then in this space. But I'm also grateful that I get the be there with my clients as we move through this together. Yeah, you know I think there is something really powerful about that right because you know of course in our training. Don't make the therapy about you that kind of thing, but that's not what this is right. This is a shared space of humanity, especially given everything happening in the world right now you know so I think it is important that win clients. Ask You our you doing that. It's okay to share. Human's a human without it becoming about you. Exactly. Yeah, it's like hey, all this I. Appreciate Your asking me and checking in, but let's look like. Let's get back to you. Always rerouted right. You've definitely not about me, but they're just certain candidates that I've been examining myself throughout. The ethics of our practices in Raleigh right and in my quest to continue to divest from white supremacy whiteness. Myself and the therapist hired. This is part of the work that we are doing that. I'm just like no. We have to examine the ethics in all none that came my way. Does it actually make sense for the people we serve become songwriting know that mental help industry has historically been white male folk it's. That has been the case then. Chances are the ethics that they let us have. Our white male focused. Driven and driven by capitalism white supremacy. Additional work. Come on with this open in prayer. Come on come on. Yeah absolutely I mean, and I don't think it's any like accident. Right that in our facebook groups right in the black facebook groups with their busy that we will often talk about how our practice looks very different. You know like there are lots of things that we have been taught that we figured out. Don't work for US and don't work for the clients that we serve exactly yeah. Absolutely absolutely so I am thankful for you joining us, you know I know. We had a little bit of a back and forth like. Does it feel okay to do this? Does it feel you know wrong? So like do an insecure recap, but also decided that that happiness, and and you know the the warm hug is how I describe. It felt like we got on Sunday night. was something also be celebrated into? Give people a little bit of a reprieve right that we can continue to focus on the fight, but also have moments where we are being restored and celebrating joy and. And for Black People George seeking joy seeking pleasure seeking peace, all of these things are revolutionary as well. These are not things that have been afforded to black beat, so we do deserve moments where we get to re engage with things that help us to feel good that make us laugh that make us engage in a different way. We can still fight this fight, and we are so fighting this fight, even in the midst of rest, even in the midst of seeking pleasure.
Trump to declare national emergency to combat the coronavirus
Another Weekend Of Protests In Hong Kong
"In Beijing waiting for Hong Kong's pro democracy protests to dissipate had another disappointing weekend as has been the case every weekend since June in Hong Kong streets have hosted large-scale demonstrations some of them violent at least eighty nine people were arrested and at least eighteen injured a more peaceful protests by university -versities students has taken place today. Lon joined from Hong Kong by Monocle Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers James on the scale of the recent demonstrations demonstration's. How much cleaning up needed to be done this morning? Yes well. Hong Kong got back to to work again this morning and it seems to be a a case of similar things on Monday mornings cleaning up the MTR's railway stations substations. We've become a big focus for for protest kind of violence and vandalism over the last few weeks it has felt felt a bit quieter today in in and around one NJAI and admiralty and Causeway Bay where lots of the the clashes were last night and little shops. You haven't opened so there is a a bit of a clearing up going on and repairing but you know I I got the the MTA to into this morning. using some of the stations is that were vandalized last night's and things are being repaired and Hong Kong's basically getting back to business as is the way of these things it is the violence that commands mom for headlines but how representative of the ongoing protests are those incidents well. The the organization that tries is to or the arrange these big marches. They tried to organize one on the weekend but the police didn't give its authority to go ahead so officially it it it. It wasn't an authorized. March people still went ahead and did it. The the numbers were nowhere near as as large as these marches have been in the past and but as usual these these peaceful get togethers quickly turned into violent clashes so it's definitely a case of of the general the average. Joe Is not necessarily turning out which is big as numbers that happened in the past but the that kind of hardcore what the government would call that radical element. They're still very much on the streets and it's those those people who are pushing these protests into new when I guess more dangerous areas the clashes and the standoff between police and protesters are continuing there's been some worrying signs and worrying scenes where we saw two traffic cops basically surrounded by protesters says carrying Molotov cocktails and taking their guns out in defense people might not realize that police in Hong Kong every police person in Hong Kong carries a revolver aside on and so it wouldn't take much for these these clashes between between police and protesters to really turn ugly for something for someone to to lose their life another worrying development is the clashes between regular Hong Kong's split between the protesters and and the pro government side there was one one one guide got badly beaten up by a group of protesters during over the weekend and had to be taken to hospital in a very critical condition and then these kind of scraps and fights between between the two sides continued into Areas Areas Fortress Hill and north points at Sunday night so there's the on one hand. There's the there's the ongoing caution police in protests but it's also kind of spitting being society more and we're seeing just a regular members of the public get involved in punch-ups. Just finally just quickly detect any a abatement in popular support for the protests as the economic realities of this begin to bite. There's some suggestion that Hong Kong's first recession in a decade is imminent tourist numbers down forty percent and so on. I'm not sure whether it's the the those economic figures that are getting people so to kind of new support for this but I do see from the government side that that the Chief Executive Carrie Lam when she withdrew the bill formerly Sh- I think she does does feel like I have had a big impact. She's very much visible on the streets and at events and speaking at things like she used to be before these protests kicked off because you know at the end of the the day Lotta people a lot of regular people came out because of this extradition bill that extradition bill is only one other five demands that protesters are making but when it comes to the ordinary people in the extradition bill has now been removed. I think that it has has led to a lot of people deciding that they're no longer going to unnecessary turnout in in as many as big big numbers. I don't think that the support is necessary dwindled for a for the protesters but it's very much the more the more radical uncommitted people that we see turning out on the streets day in day out. I don't see that necessarily going away. The the seventieth anniversary for the People's Republic in China is on October the first and that will have a big unifying effect on the protesters so I I feel like big will come out again but at the moment i`ts expect over over the same in the in these kind of smaller skirmishes James Jay Bilas

"You just got done watching the dude wreck the league by himself. You just got done watching it. Would you hate him if he chose the Lakers now because of all ready seen him do it by himself? So if he went to if you decided, hey, that was really hard. I did it. I conquered at mountain, I'm gonna move onto an easier mountain with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. I'm totally fine conquered the more difficult. Man, I don't think that I think the same thing that the people felt about Durant going to the warriors within being play here. Would it not? No. Because Durant didn't win anything you never wanna title without going to Golden State. He had to win his title. The go-to Golden State Kawais not doing that. He's already want to, but you're just rationalizing your bad behavior with Kevin Durant. You're just excusing yourself for the way that you behaved with Kevin Durant, my saying, well he didn't win the title. If Kawhi Leonard went to the Lakers. I don't think people would be applauding that you, you're in what world I think people would just going to be indifferent. Like, okay. He's going to the Lakers. That's when Kevin Durant went to the warriors you kept saying they just wreck the league, if Kawhi goes to the Lakers, they just wreck the lead the same way the I don't know if the league is wreck though, of goes to the Lakers, I don't. I mean, you still have the Golden State Warriors. You don't know what's going to happen to Kevin Durant. If he stays there, you know, he's gonna come back and so was closed. So the re the league is not wrecked. It's, it's more intriguing. What about the warriors? What if you went to the warriors, because I'd feel I agree with you? That people will turn on him if he goes to the Lakers, I didn't the warriors are in that category, too. I mean he just ended the best dynasty in that league that we've seen for a very long time with Kyle Lowry. Is a second best player? Amen. Imagine what that would look like with Anthony Davis, although Kawai seems to be if I can tell with him seems who have enjoyed all the, the credit and success. He's gotten for being the guy. I can't imagine he just wants to stand in the corner, while the brawn James ball handles. Zion Williamson is going to be drafted this evening. And when he gets drafted, I'm trying to I'm trying to figure out. Whether or not we've seen we know that he's a novelty. Right. That he that his body type and the things that he does we have not seen from that size. Is it possible in the NBA, because you just heard Jay Bilas say, look, we all underestimated Zion coming out of high school? He was the third best prospect, the Duke had by consensus, and it's because he was playing against children and made it looked like he was playing in children. Then he goes to college, and it still looks like he's playing against children. And my question to you is, is it possible in the NBA to be more of a man than everyone else because he's not doing it as a seven footer. He is doing it on a kind of explosive athleticism. That just is, is almost is, as Jay Bilas told you the measurement system for this. Kind of explosiveness has not been concocted yet. Right. We've seen it. Typically, with big men be more of a man shack. But I think we have a very recent example of someone being more of a man than anybody that was quite Leonard bullied, the Greek freak, who is an unprecedented athlete, just broke Kvant, who loonies collarbone it appears by moving into the strength that quite Leonard despite was incredible. And LeBron before him in terms of physical specimen. But when you're studying that league, right. And you see the evolution of that lake where somebody like Anthony Davis didn't exist during Michael Jordan's time that, that human being was not playing in the sport. Kevin Durant with Dr Michael Jordan never had to face, anything like Kevin Durant. But now you gotta square coming to do it. It's not one of these string beans, not unto the comp-. Oh, it's, it's a guy who may Barkley. He's shaped differently like Moses Malone like Barkley where you're talking about somebody's going to get into the paint. See the thing that Zion did last year..

"And you know, really versatile best defender in the draft, a lot of people really like areas, garland. He's been compared Mike Schmitz, and then Chauncey Billups Billips both both compared him. Damian Lillard and he does have a beautiful shooting stroke. I mean he can really drill it shoot from deep and shoot off the dribble is just people haven't seen him you know, he went to Vanderbilt and he got hurt after his fifth game. So, you know, his his ex coach Bryce drew, because he got fired largely because that kick out hurt they would have won them a lot more games. But if he didn't get hurt by street was saying, well, he feels like he would have been considered a better prospect, even as against John Moran, a little, I'm a little dubious on that one. But, but, but I don't dismiss it completely because 'cause garlic can really shoot. Jay Bilas with us on ESPN radio. Tom habits Stroh has an article written today saying the NBA draft is getting younger and younger and teams are getting worse than picking and developing talent even with all the technology and resources, it's still a crap shoot. You just got done saying something similar in that vein. Can you explain to me how it's possible that I on Williamson went to Duke as the third best player by consensus? He was the third best player there. And then everything changed in a couple of months. Yeah. I, I you know, look, I was I was in that camp to, you know when you saw play at high school. So he's Spartanburg South Carolina, and he was playing against all these little kids. I mean it looked like van, you know, look like a dad played against a bunch of eight year olds in his driveway. But when, when I saw him in Canada, my in playing against men in Canada, my perspective completely changed. I came back from there going. I've never seen anything like this guy before. And, and it was you know, your job was on the floor. Not just with the plays. You know, we've all see great athletes before. But with that package of, of size and in in skill and then his explosive ability pluses lateral quickness, like he wasn't running people over. He's getting by them in there were times like you kinda shaking your head and almost like a cartoon character going guy that size can't do that. And that's not possible when I just saw there. And, and I knew I knew then I mean we all talked to the SPN. We got a we got to do something about this, like this is going to be different than anything we've ever seen. And you know you guys know this like our ratings way up in college basketball because his eye on that do games were way up the game overall was way up beyond sort of what trae young did last year at Oklahoma made. It was on a totally different level and it wasn't because our promos were so good. Or like are hype was so good? It's because once people saw this guy, they knew he was different and, and they were seeing something really, really special. It doesn't mean he's the best player I've ever seen because he's not. I don't think he's better than LeBron. At this stage. I don't you know, I would still think Anthony Davis over him if I had the opportunity, but, but, but those the list of players, I would take over him is a pretty darn short one. I don't think I've ever heard you speak with this kind of certainty. I don't remember what you said about LeBron James. But I don't think you've been fascinated by the novelty of this guy throughout, but I don't believe I've ever heard. You be more a few sive for a player more certain about a player than you are. On zion. I was I was certain with Anthony Davis. I was certain with what's LeBron. Like I wasn't I wasn't gonna say hall of Famer when he was eighteen years old. But I was going bad. There's only injuries gonna get in this way do he need to improve shooting. Yes. Of course, you know, same thing resigned. He needs to be a better shooter. There needs to be a better shooter. But, but Cihan has something like his his player efficiency rating..

"But like do you want to, you know, do you wanna leave ESPN there's a lot going for you at this company, you could, but you have to if you're going to go up to your bosses and basically say, hey, look, I'm trusting my own talent. I can go somewhere else. I don't have to resign here. It's like you could. But maybe you're we don't think that's an apples to apples comparison. Like, let's try to look at somebody's not. I'm just trying to let's just say someone like higher up on the totem pole. Right. Let's say let it doesn't even. Let's let's just say someone is simple as like Jay Bilas. Right. Jay Bilas is the premier college basketball analyst ESPN's. Excellent Jay Bilas can go wherever he wants. And because that's not apples, apple them. Because Lukashenko everyone he's got the well. But you just said he can get he should be able to get an interview anywhere. He wants. But Jay Bilas if Bilas wanted to go to FOX, I'm pretty sure FOX would be like, okay, cool. Let's do it this way. Let's make it Bilas. Let's make it Reese, Dave. Who host college football college game day, right? He's an excellent host. He's probably had chances to go a million other places, and he has stated ESPN, but that would be the equivalent he's that guy. He just got that job a couple years ago. He's done a really good job holding that showdown after Chris Fowler. Did it for twenty years. And yeah, like he he can do things on his terms. Now. He's employed right now, but ties got ten million you he's got the money. He's got three more years of employment. Whether whether he takes a job or not. And that's what I'm getting at is that he's got the security of the employment, even though he doesn't have the actual empowers. Okay. So that's a different conversation. Wish I -gree with he's got. I'm not worried about Tyler when his future, and it's like financial situation whether or not you could ever get another job period. I'm just saying if you especially if you set out another couple of years, you're not just guaranteed to get a job. That's this. Good this. I've of an offer you're not you're not guaranteed. That's that's why you don't have. All of the leverage that's fair. Christie's in Gardena. What's up, Chris? Hey, what's going on with you? George. I you know, I spoke to you before. And I appreciate it. So I'm gonna try to say this real quick and get this out of the way because I know that you have a lot of people to get to first of all let me say to you, man. I got a lot of respect for you, bro. For the way, you handled that caller yesterday. Do you know what Nick was kind of a little bit disrespectful? But you know, I think he didn't really know any better. I think he writes up a fan. Like, I am I'm gonna tell you. I'm fifty years old, bro. I've got a tattoo all of the Lakers on the side of my ribcage, man. They let you know. I'm a Laker fan for life. I follow the Lakers forever meme, but let me tell you what I believe is wrong with it right now, we the Lakers. We we lost we lost. Mr. fuck, you know..
2019 NCAA championship: Virginia wins its first national title
"Like this. Virginia that seventy five seventy three next to going over time. How big is younger. My goodness. Monsters twenty seven hundred Westwood One. Aa radio network hunter coming up big twenty seven points in the Egypt game. Kyle guy had twenty four Virginia hits all twelve free. Throw attempts in the overtime period. And they come away with the title as you heard eighty five seventy seven in OT. They beat Texas Tech the eighth national title game to go to overtime the first since two thousand eight when Kansas beat Memphis the first national title game between two teams that had never previously appeared in the title game since nineteen seventy nine Magic Johnson's Michigan state team against Larry bird's. Indiana state team Virginia wins this one first title game between schools that had previously never wanted title since nineteen Ninety-one UNLV beat Duke, Tony Bennett becoming the ninth active division one coach to win a national title. I think it was a terrific game to see how these. Guys, played the one thing I said to him before in the locker room. I said you guys faced pressure that no team in the history of the game is faced will really all year. But but being down fourteen against garner web. I said, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out I said that I think has prepared you for this moment to the handle the pressure or the the intensity of national championship game. And these guys stepped up to me that was it appeared from Istambul to be a high level game. And you know, we scored eighty five that was in that setting. So good stuff. Hey, coach Bennett. Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end. But Virginia made play after play that end of the overtime. They were great didn't miss a free throw were they were outstanding

"But I watched like Bilas today saying, I, you know, I probably wouldn't have called it. But every official would say, yeah, I see it. Right. And here's the thing mode. You can't you don't want to leave the game in the hands of the officials. You just let that guy in what he caught the ball. You would have to make a circus shot to beat you. And you still would have had time to make shot had he made it, right? But by Fallon them, you just took you took control away from your team. Exactly that was it. And then they view weird play where they threw a ball to half court, Tennessee through a ball to half court and called time out and left themselves point one on the clock f which what goods that can do you point one come on Gonzaga looks really good and Texas Tech looks really good. You you had Texas Tech making it this far. I did I had I had them in the elite. And so then tonight, we get a bunch more games, including Duke and North Carolina. And I'm ready. All right, go. We all look at the all piggyback on you, then thousand dollars k do mythical mutton. No, I got minus seven and a half known.

"The Jay Bilas for coming on the line with us. Let's go to Danny. You'll obvious even talk to me. Danny are you there? Yeah. I am saving. Hey. How are you today? I'm all right. Go ahead, sir. Yes, sir. I just wanted to say a couple of things you and I have in common. We liked the Yankees. So let's see what they do this year. They got a pretty good start. Yes. They with their own one ball. But. We'll go ahead. I'm I'm calling you live Saturday show. We had a good ACC term if their in town this this year, and I just surprised that maybe Stephen did pick Virginia to at least be in that top full. I don't lie. Listen, they're damned. Good team. They can beat anybody. But their defense carries them, even though they've had some offensive offensively. Impressive games this year. I'm not sold on them offensively. And I'll be honest you from an emotional perspective. I don't wanna see them. I really really don't. I think they make games ugly. I think they turn it into ugly encounters their game. They win against Oregon was was a testament to that they shoot thirty five percent from the field. Twenty seven percent from three point range, and they still ended up winning the game because they hold the team to forty nine points. They win ugly. And that's not what I wished to see. So that may play the role in my unwillingness to pick Virginia. Okay. I truly understand. I understand where you're going from. What if you remember us back? Carolina hit it four point offense, which was definitely slow to gave Damas very boring, but we gotta give telling you been in an awful lot of credit. He has built the team won. Very good coach, he's a very going to the best one of the best three point shooters any ACC would cow cow guy, but he's had a night. And then we over to Carolina. They don't have a three point shooter. They Johnson kid is excellent. But we also gotta give Luke maye a lot of credit there. Luke maye had thirty fifteen and a win at Cameron indoor stadium early in the season against Duke Cameron Johnson shooting about forty two percent for three point rate. Kobe white is no joke. So we know that Carolina is formidable. I've got them I picked him to win the national championship. But a lot of people are picking Duke or what have you? And that's the way it goes, Danny, which you want me to say, well, I can't say like I said, I know the strong we thought teams in the top sixteen here, we got I'm not a tick saying it had family. There's going to take what they going over against tonight. But you know, I it to me defense does not win a ballgame agree with you there, Stephen A, and we all like to see the big science Williams kid. He's brought so much to the TV into the program at all, and you know, going up against coach K A, ROY Williams. Tony Bennett deserve a lot of credit. He's co year. They will they will pretty he they will pretty much in that top choosy. But but is one of the best teams in the game. I gotta go. I appreciate the call their number one seat for reason. We know it. We know how formidable they are. But let's see them. Get it done before we will to make Tony Bennett the second coming coach K or ROY Williams. Let's see what they do. I appreciate the call. Thank you so much. Let's go to charge. You'll live Stephen go ahead. Charles. Yeah. You know, Steven relent come well to comments. Okay. Everybody wants to blame. Magic for the circuses in L A L as a circus. Now, nobody wants to come and play first of all you can't relate to these kids because when maj they did in himself when they got cell phones, they got the Curio kinds of things that you know, media wise that they didn't have in. And nobody's saying anything about the guy. They traded away that end up. We'll be the sixth man of the year in Lou Williams. And Why's that? That's true. We should bring up because that's the tremendous loss. Lou Williams, something special, man. Make no mistake about it. But by the way, I got to be careful of what I'm here from your Charles..

"What I saw him playing Candida this last summer. I was telling people a way to you. This guy will be sportscenter every night that's tail dominates the sportscenter top ten, and we're not going to have to explain it after a while at once you see it, you will be hooked and you'll do it. And you know, I think we're trying to make comparisons. And that's what we do. There's nothing wrong with it about getting on anybody about it. But there's no confidence guy you are saying, well, he's like Charles Barkley with this added or a more explosive trust, you know, we have to add to it. There's nobody that's ever been like this guy. Doesn't mean he's the best player that that I've ever seen because he's not. But but he's truly unique. And and there's never there's never been a guy like here. But I'm not sure we'll see. His like again, he's it's true. He is unique. He's box office. And he's going to be the number one overall pick. We all know it who would be your number two John rant RJ Barrett. Who would be your number two Jay Bilas right now, Stephen A would be RJ Barrett. And it would be largely because I think I think he's been a little bit overshadowed by by Zairean. But you know, if you switch spots, it would be it would be job ramp being overshadowed by what he actually played a ewbal same FEMA side lamps in South Carolina, John at that. But RJ Barrett is is a legit six five six six left-handed can handle and pass. He's had a triple double earlier this year one of the best defensive rebounders in the college game, not irrespective of size. And and I think he's a James harden type player now, I happen to think that the John Maranto Russell Westbrook die player. So we've got three guys in this draft. But I think our I don't want to say sure fire, but they're all star caliber talents. And it's just a question of of what's going to be best for team rather than whether these guys could play because all three of them can really play very last question who you have gone to the final four to refresh my memory, and winning it all I had North Carolina a beating Duke in the final I had Virginia going and I had Michigan. But Michigan gotta let the air out of that one the way they shot all, but you know, I didn't I didn't have all four number one. Sees I probably should have. Wow. Yeah. I had Duke North Carolina, Gonzaga and Tennessee in Tennessee visibly lost in overtime. So that got next. That's when I had. Yeah. Stephen, it'd have this many quality teams make it this far and high seeds. You know, you're you're you're not gonna have all, you know, everybody make it all the twos and all that stuff. Somebody's gonna get somebody who's gonna get cliff that you know, Tennessee had a great chance to win it. They just didn't. And that literally was a coin flip game could have gone either way. James?

"Maybe but but if you're not if you're not scoring at a decent clip throughout the course of the year. I just don't see how that changes in March. I've said for years, the smartest guys have been the coaches like Kay or like is we're going to try to score we're going to get down to court fast. And we're going to go to the final four. I totally agree is Texas Tech to me, really good. Bug. Think Virginia's in that category. I don't they can score. I'm going to say I can see Virginia getting beat early. Again this year. I watched them play. And I think I know hunters good. I had him in the Bahamas. I can see them getting beat early again. I just don't think you have guy and Jerome. I know the very good a little kids. Good. I some three nights did. But I I came away from that thinking this Virginia team can get beat early. And Michigan to me. It's interesting because I think the big ten most leagues, but I think the big ten is really well scouted. And I think the big ten is figured out. You get the one guy didn't go. Get a bucket is Jordan pool and you get up into him and you make him play through. And and two nights in a row hasn't really been there. I like I trust Michigan more than I trust, Texas Tech. But God you right? You gotta get anybody can beat you. If you're gonna play in the low sixties and fifties. But yeah. Yeah. That's to me when you are when you have lower possession games. It may give you a chance to win more games through the course of the year, the you might have one otherwise cause more possessions talent is gonna is gonna carry the day. But man, you know, you're also gonna have on average closer games in March. And when you have closer games and lower possession games. You have a better better opportunity. Get beat. It's like, you know, there's probably like like in baseball. I mean, you you play a lot of a lot of you know, sort of pitchers tools. It doesn't it doesn't take much to lose a pitcher to make one mistake. That's I mean, I'm telling you play in the eighties. Teams can get in the eighties against really good athletes care how well they got. But a lot of teams get three of us and good point guard and gave could get to the fifties. I mean, hell that's just throw it to Bilas Virginia. I didn't Virginia played vol cow guide missed open shots. He doesn't miss open shots would they have seventy two making seventy seventy two seven. But I went back and watch the tape. I mean, you're right. They could have played better. What I was surprised at is how they got beat how they gave up the seventy two and it was not only the offensive rebounds. And all that because they got caught him some switches and all that you can't expect cow guide a box out Zion. Williamson nobody's asking him to do that. But they got beat. I think it showed more how good dukes transition was they got beaten transition on a bunch of times where where I haven't seen that happen to them in any game. And and so I think it was more their defense that got him got him beat and their offense. 'cause you know, if they score seventy. That was the first time in Duke Virginia game the last several years that anybody got seventy and so they scored enough points to win. I think it was their defense that kind of hurt them.

"So it all worked out. This is the greatest entrance ever to an article welcome to volume one of the Bill index the most reliable measure of basketball excellence on this tiny little planet since the first ball was dribbled in practice. This season data has been input into the John Norma's hunting brain inside the Bill straight is massive cranium continues. This never ends the Bilas index has farsightedness trust worthiness in the Ankeny. Accuracy that our mind. Ogling? It's a contrast. It's a constant skews me. It's a national treasure. And it's the only measure the selection committee should used lays gentlemen, the author of such pros Jay Bilas. Element. How are you? It's the best. Man. How do why why pussy foot around when you can just, you know, give people the truth? Just throw it right at him. I I got before we get an we were talking about our team starting to separate themselves. Let me go through your top four teams Virginia, Duke, Tennessee, Michigan state. All right. Michigan is your fifteen. I don't think they're playing great right now. But I think they have a resume to be fifth third. Whatever you want our the top four starting to separate themselves. And if not who you thrown in there, I would put in there. I still think Michigan his aga- our top six worthy in a in a half dozen that are good enough to put on a separate shelf. And you guys know I mean, I it's when you're dealing with a poll, it's always, well, what have you done lately, you know, this team doesn't look good this week. They're not. But but in the course of a season, you know, teams are gonna have bad outings and bad shooting nights. Somebody gets sick. They go on the road. They lay in a, you know, stuff like that that that stuff happens and it happens at football to just doesn't happen often. 'cause they don't play as much football played thirty five forty games, they'd lose just as many as as basketball teams to in exactly the same way. But I I think you know, one I think Michigan state's been undervalued throughout the course of the year. And and I do think that a team like like Virginia, and and Tennessee and Duke those teams can can rise up, and I think separate a little bit further than they have even even to this point. Yeah. You mentioned it's get so read about this. I because they go off the beaten path next eight weeks. I mean, they almost kind of disappear from your consciousness because they're of who they're playing where they're playing, you know, they're not in our mindset, but we're looking at Gonzaga J, right? They got better to less two weeks getting killed Killington. Yeah. Tilly back gives them a another just massive weapon. I mean, he's their best shooter. If you can believe that six ten six eleven he's their best perimeter shooter. And I think last year in the west coast conference tournament he made eleven straight threes in the tournament. And and you know, so he gets healthier as we go forward. He probably won't be the player. He would have been if if he was there all year long. And I mean, so hard to come back from from being out that long and be what you should have been, but he can still be really valuable to them. And I hear you on. But, but that's been there issue every year is they dropped they drop off the radar because we're not seeing them in the SEC. Or the big ten all that stuff. And so we start we start devaluing them. But at the end of the year like I always find it curious. And I know I get it. I get the way fans are. But I always find a curious that on one hand will say, well, I mean, they've never lived up to it. And and and for Jinya, I mean, they they, you know, we talk about how great they are. And they don't do anything in turn amount. But then we'll turn around and say why anybody can get the final four loyal Chicago. Did it VCU did it and all you know, anybody can do it except these guys just doesn't make any sense to me? What's best story? In college basketball right now is John Williamson.

"I get all that. But but to me Florida state beats our competes with anybody when they get in the passing lanes off the ball. It was it was stark to me the difference first and second half against Clemson when Florida state was just kind of playing off the ball. And then it was obvious. They were down at halftime and somebody whether it was, you know, stand Jones or Leonard Hamilton got after their backsides because they got out in passing lanes. And quite frankly, Clemson had no chance in the game. It's it's one of the rare teams that I don't just say I got make shots because when they get out after you, man. It's yes, I think Florida state to talk about their intensity maintained. And I think he's got to get the eight or nine eleven and I think they gotta figure out that point guard situation and look you Mussa game. Like, you did do we lost Duke about half court shot that one year? It was the hardest thing, and then we had some medical issues with some parents that that thing that thing's gonna give hangover but league play it's like off, man. It's like, you know, be making that comeback against you in the Bahamas. You gotta have a short term memory. You got you beat the time before. So I get it. We're one to get Atlanta.

He's like he's like a he's like a video game. Some of the things he does John Murray may I play devil's advocate played devil's advocate. Choice. It seems like every year we come up with somebody. That's the next big thing. What was it Eldrick Peyton Isaiah cannon? Pattern campaign. Those guys. Yes. Two first round draft choices at Murray since twenty thirty. Yeah. Why are they just smarter than everybody at Murray? They find a guy that nobody else's looking at or did they develop them or both? What are your thoughts? I think they do a great job of valuation guys up like when you're a places like Murray after do they they kind of ridiculous tradition. Twenty-five oversee championships. Sixteen torn championship sixty minutes tournaments. I mean, you know, figure about guys that have coached here. You know, you had Billy Kennedy at Mick Cronin yet the famous Mark Godfried. I mean, they've got a rich tradition of basketball here, they've got rabid fan base. And if you're not say an SEC guy coming out in this region, or you know, what are your other options? This is a great environment. But they've been a great job evaluation. This give year he played a basketball with Zion. Williamson as junior and was under recurred. That's. Kinda hard to do. Well, zillion people are watching you play. But he was about a buck fifty six three little bit wild. But you know, addin credible freshman year average, twelve eight seven is a freshman right now the way he plays. They play really fast played with open space Matic banded coach to coach sear doesn't really good jobs. A Steve pro disciple. So that play all that spread balls and stuff, but. He's legit. The only concern for me as strep terms of his vision is shop makings got all different types of layups. It's gotten a little Russell Westbrook in them. He's got a little regime Rondo in Aaron FOX in them. I mean, he's an interesting guy. I mean, I can't tell like as the third or the fifth best pick in the draft. Cause I mean, they got cab reddish as third or fifth his best pick in a draft. And I watch him and I'm trying to figure out besides potential. What he does this kid does stuff. He's got he passes the crap out of it. He's really good in ball screens, even getting Elaine, and he is fast the transition and by the way, his dunks rivals lame. So when he gets the read I mean, he he showed I I had one yesterday. He jumped over it. Jumped over do that I had one yesterday his body was parallel to the floor as he was dunking on someone and then he took on three Alabama guys. And they all just ran for cover. So he's the he's the real deal. I just need a strengthened interesting. But you know, I mean, this'll be interesting in all kinds of MBA guys hanging out here.

But this movie we get James McEvoy returning as a bunch of people, aka the hord. We get Bruce Bilas returning his David Dunn Samuel Jackson as a laser price, aka Mr. glass on your Taylor joy from split. It's Casey Kook coke says has to os Kook, I guess cook.

Like there is. I mean, yes, there is more to the movie, but as far as the beats UCLA lot of those trailers.

Tyus Battle's 32 Lead Syracuse to Shocking Upset Win over Zion Williamson, Duke
"A lot going on in the world of sports. We'll get into more dominance from James harden, a decision that gets pretty easy for the defending Super Bowl champions in my mind at this point a decision yesterday did seem to be a no brainer. That for some reason. I felt like we treated like a lot more than it was. That still has plenty of drama left to unfold for one major NFL prospect. But I. Holy hell Zion. Williamson I understand that Duke lost. I understand that. And if you missed it last night. Syracuse went on the road upset Duke ninety five ninety one in overtime. We got a little free basketball, which for those of us watching the bachelor last night. There is nothing like watching Colton going camping with the girls and the bachelor house and seeing simultaneously. Oh, I'm getting free basketball to this was all of my worlds coming together in the absolute best ways possible. Now for the Duke side of things I understand Duke lost. But when you look at the circumstances around why it becomes not only understandable. But I think it's never excusable. I want to say that right now Duke is too talented across the board the guys that they had left on the court. We're still good enough to where you have to get this done at home. And I say left on the court because part of the story for Duke last night going into the game. Cam reddish, one of the stars in their team missing with illness. Not in an available for them in the game. And then about five and a half minutes in trae Jones their star guard a guy who's a defensive juggernaut for them and a huge catalyst for them. Offensively leaves the game with what Mike chef ski described after as a shoulder sprain. It's a shoulder sprain. And we'll put out because I'm not gonna do medical stuff. But it's a sprain. There's no break, although he was in a lot of pain. He's a kid that the toughest kid right away. I don't know if my car broke bonus broken, you know, and it was that it was hurting that badly, but it's a sprain. And that was my worry. The I I saw that you thought it might have been a broken collarbone, which would have been devastating for this do blue devils team that listen the proof is in the pudding like the when he is on and off the court for them just within the body of this game be five minutes and change that he was on the court during this game Duke point differential, plus eight with him on the court field goal percentage. Fifty five point six percent with him off the court the point differential, minus twelve thirty six point six percent field goal percentage. They suffer offensively they suffer defensively where he's one of the best, man. Demand defenders in the ACC. And so that is going to affect you always said when it comes to injury. Usually we talk about it with the timing going into the season. At different points of the year, injuries are going to affect you differently. And so if you're a star player that gets injured at the beginning of the season ally. Last Joseph the Boston Celtics, for example, Gordon Hayward being injured at the beginning of the season. You spend the entire rest of the year. Figuring out how you adjust without Gordon Hayward. Kyrie Irving being injured right before the playoffs. All of a sudden, that's a major adjustment for a guy who has been a huge part of your offense. You might grow that down to a single game. And Cam rightish, who you know is not going to be available to you. That night is one way you adjust the game plan. Trey Jones going down in the body of that game is another completely when you have to now adjust without that guy on the court for you without the certainly the encore leadership that he brings you and all that production, and so the energy shifted as one might say. To Zion Williamson at RJ Barrett. Who took who scored fifty eight combined points last night the second most by Duke freshman duo under Mike shefty, but it wasn't quite enough. And I say all this again is a backdrop to discredit Syracuse for going in there and getting a win. And Lord knows we have become accustomed to Syracuse teams throughout the course of time underachieving during the regular season finding a way to make a run that alternately lands them in a Sweet Sixteen type season. That's the capability always exists with a Syracuse team. But man, you even heard Jim pay Heim after this who as usual was lighting up the sidelines in a way that the internet sopped up and enjoy tremendously even Jim boeheim after this kind of understood like man, there was a lot working against Duke. And we are still the team as Twitter would remind you last night big night for Old Dominion Twitter. Because ODU Twitter was reminding you the transit of property can be ineffective you so choose and college basketball, and this is a Syracuse team that. Lost to Old Dominion earlier this year, and you can kind of hear their head coach wearing that dukes. Great team. They don't have to other key guys. That's the breaks of the game. Sometimes. Those two guys the whole game. But you know, it's just one of those things. I watched one tape white may eight threes one game. I think seventy a lot. He couldn't tonight. That's just the way the game is sometimes I am. I asked Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Duke talk about not being able to buy one from three that was the other thing there were a lot of specific jokes made about the sexual prowess of the bachelor over the course of last night. Those were only outnumbered by Duke missed three point shots in a game where they went nine for forty three. Again, a game in which one of their best offense players out. They went nine for forty three. The most three point field goal attempts in school history. Duke now becoming the fifth AP number one team to lose at home to an unranked team in the last ten seasons. So. An outlier in a lot of ways. Again, you look at all the things surrounding this performance. I'm inclined to look at these and not excuse a loss. But understand the circumstances around and say, all right. I'm not going to sound the alarms yet for do. Because this is still a Duke team that again man you saw what Zion is capable in. The midst of all this for a team that has struggled this season against own. We know no one really runs it better than Syracuse. In a lot of ways Zion still thirty five points in a loss. He goes thirty five and ten in this game. He becomes the first major conference player. With thirty five ten four and a game since Kevin Durant. Did it back in two thousand and seven and you saw for all the talk. We had about on a while back. I want to be known as more than just a dunker. You saw that on display last night because him going down and being that differentiating force in the paint. And that's where in the past by the passed earlier this season when you look at the other loss to zag and the things that undermine them in that game with teams clogged up, the paint, this outfit tend to have a bit of trouble. And you saw them do a better job of that last night. They just couldn't hit shots. Like, it's we always hear about the NBA to make making mislead couldn't hit shots your one of your best players and a guy who initiate your offense. And your defense goes out within the first five minutes of the game last night. And all of a sudden the plan changes. Now, what it means going forward becomes entirely different and Jay Bilas ESPN college basketball analyst pointed that out that long term for Duke. The worry. I think any team that loses a point guard like that is going to have some issues and.
Delayed Congo poll offers slim hope for change
"Elections on Sunday were set to herald the country's first transition of power by the ballot box with President Joseph Kabila stepping down after seventeen years in office. But an explosion of violence has caused the polls to be postponed. All the Ryan discusses what happened and why it matters with the F T Africa editor David pilling. David how much violence has been in the run-up to the polls and who's behind it wouldn't immediate run up to this election. There's been a gradual build up a violence. A number of opposition rallies have been broken up by security forces. There have been people shot dead and numbers a quite hard to come by. There was a rally there was supposed to have taken place earlier this week in Concetta by the opposition leading candidate Martin for you, which was broken up by tear gas, in fact, never took place, but one has to go even further back because this election is really been rumbling on for years. It was meant to have taken place in two thousand and sixteen and if you count the election violence, the protests against the election, not taking place and the authorities reaction to that. Then there have been dozens indeed hundreds of deaths that this election has already been responsible for as to who takes blame for this violence. A lot of it is security forces of the. Administration of the state, which is really not permitted opposition rallies, which has overreacted to demonstrations people being very frustrated at the slow pace of these elections. And now, of course, the further postponing of the poll from Sunday because that postponement is not only because of this violence is also an Ebola outbreak in the east of the country. There's voting machines which went up in flames allegedly anyway, and the electoral commission has used this as somewhat say an excuse or pretext to push the elections out a further week until December the thirtieth who are the main candidates in. What are the prospects? There are really three candidates. First of all, you have a man code Emmanuel shoddy who is running really as the proxy of Joseph Kabila, the man who's been in power for seventeen years his prospects. Most observers of Congo thing that he will win by hook. Oh by crook because the regime that's been. Power wants him to win and Kabila has shown no sign of really wanting to relinquish power. And that this is his chance to hold onto power by using what the Congolese are calling a dolphin. The opposition had briefly United on the one candidate Martin for ULA who's an oil executive who has the backing of two other politicians who would have run for the presidency. But for one reason or another worthy not allowed into the country or not allowed to run those struck down by a constitutional court. So in a sense, he's also a proxy for them. Unfortunately for the opposition the opposition split just a couple of days after agreeing to put up a United candidates, and there's another candidate called Phoenix Tshisekedi who represents in a sense, his father who for years and years and years was the official opposition who ran against not only Kabila, but Joseph Kabila's father, Lauren Kabila and bef-. For him even against Mabuza cisa cycle. He died before this election was able to take place. And so now Felix who has really the name recognition is also running can you tell us a little bit more let Mr. Sharara, then what kind of person is he well, he's not very well known in the country. He was the interior minister. And he was the interior minister at a period of some volatility when there were demonstrations in the streets of Kinshasa, December two thousand sixteen that was the first time that does Kabila at effectively refused to hold an election as he ought to have done because the constitution dictated that. And then the Kasai region also erupted into violence, and there was a very brutal security crackdown as a result of that should Dary is now the subject of European sanctions. Because inefficient he's been blamed as the head of the interior ministry for these crackdowns, which involve many, many deaths apart from that he is thought to be very loyal to Kabila. That's why Kabila chose him. The assumption is that he will do Kabila's bidding, what's at stake in this election. Why is it so important? Well, the DRC the Democratic Republic of Congo is a huge nation in the center of Africa in the Great Lakes region. It's a nearly European sized nation covered in rainforest. Very poor communications it can be impossible to get from one part of the country to another. They're very few roads. But what it does have is huge minora resources, for example, cobalt which is needed for a mobile phones, and which is needed for electric car batteries and really the green revolution. That were also expectantly awaiting in the west is really cannot happen without the resources pouring out of conga, but congress has been very poorly run to put it mildly. It's a state in a kind of near state of collapse. The somehow been held together by Joseph Kabila sort of patched together. So who runs this country? It is important for the outside world. And I would argue more importantly is very important for eighty million Congolese who despite sitting on all this huge wealth have been so poorly governed there among the poorest people in Africa with really terrible statistics. If you look at the health statistics life expectancy to disticts access to education access to hospitals and access to anything. They've really been let down by leadership has acted more as a kind of an extractive leadership to extract wealth from them than as a leadership. That's really there to serve them. So the hope for anyone is that at the very least Joseph Kabila who has been in power for seventeen years has agreed to step down. And although he is certainly trying to control the situation via his proxy, Emmanuel Chaudhary, maybe it'll get out of hand. Maybe he won't be able to control the system, and may be this in this, very messy difficult complicated. Way is one step towards a more Representative damore. Crecy given the way that you described Congo and electro system, there is this really likely to be a free election. Who's monitoring the poll it's not like to be free election tool. It's being monitored by civil society by the Catholic church by the African Union, but that doesn't have a great record in calling out elections and decisively saying that election has been stolen the expectation is that as long as the violence is not egregious as long as the theft of the poll is not obvious, then they'll be enough constituents, even including western diplomats and western representatives who will say look look stability of this country is more important than plunging it into a kind of post electoral crisis. So the expectation is that even if the process is as unfair as many people expect it to be that somehow enough people turn a blind is who it and the country. Will stumble on citizens effectively looked like the status quo continue with Mr Kabila remaining in power behind the same. That's what I think is not exactly the status quo because once you've stepped down you stepped down the president of the country. Does have a lot of constitutional powers should area said to be an absolute stalwart of Joseph Kabila. But who knows we've seen in neighboring Angola? When president does Santos gave up power after I think, it was thirty seven years in office and chose his successor gel. Lorenzo suddenly, and so has turned on the dos Angeles family as clamped down on a lot of the structures that had been set up over the previous nearly four decades, and we're seeing real change there. So I think once you relinquish the levers of power, you may try to hold onto them, and you may be successful in doing that. But we don't know what about the people on the street. Do you think they accept the result of medical Bilas choice whims? I think some will. But they'll be whole areas that weren't Kinshasa is an opposition stronghold. They've never liked Kabila who kind of holds up in the presidential palace playing. Jio games and on his farm driving around in his motorbike, very rarely appears in public even when the country descends into its near perennial crises. He's a kind of an invisible figure in the capital. And there are a whole other regions is the Kasai region, which is a huge region in the center of the country, which certainly belongs to the opposition then going to happily accept Kabila's nomination being elected. And then there's the whole east of the country a thousand miles away from Kinshasa very hard to reach the only way you can reach. It really is by plane or by boat along the Congo river. Maybe by motorbike all the way across the country. There you have minora resources, you have dozens and dozens of militia groups rebels. It's a very volatile part of the country and part of the world. And who knows what they're going to make this election. You've talked a lot about Congo's vast wealth. What do you think businesses will be heading for from this election? I think businesses really hope for some measure of style. Ability. I mean, there's a lot of rhetoric about paying tax in about being there for the good of the Congolese people about adding to the Congolese, national wealth. But if you look at the history of the Congo right from the time when it was the property of king Leopold than a Belgian colony and then in the post, colonial period, it really is a story of exploitation where these kind of minerals wealth rubber before that pours out of this vast country. But almost everybody in the country is left impoverished. Thank you very
