"Puts his hands in the Pope. We've been hunting for gold in the wrong truck at the end of the road. God love. Stevie G apparently got the job at villa according to English papers because club CEO Christian peers Lowe who used to have the same job at Liverpool before John Henry got rid of him. Absolutely idealizes him. There's an amazing article in the independent by Tony Evans. It's worth Googling and reading, not just because it involves the story of Christian personally face drawn on a penis by Liverpool fans, but the truth is, the leap to the Premier League is an amazing article. It tells us when he was Liverpool CEO, went up to the players when they were about to take the field in the tunnel and Christian poster was like a southern. He's no northerner. There's nothing scouts about him. But he just went up to his idol. In front of the rest of the team, Steve Gerard and went Stevie lot. That's the boss. It's just like something out of the office. It really is good luck. Go ahead. But now he's now they're working together again and I'm sure it's just amazing. The only truth is to leap into the Premier League. It's going to be bloody hard. English newspapers are already buzzing about that trip to Anfield. You know, we should remember Steve G inherits a side who are on a 5 match losing run. Very much in a relegation battle. Godspeed to him, stone on Saturday against Brighton and Graham Potter's beard, which sound they should be the who album part, they should be called bright in a gram positive bit. We should also note davo. Look who's back from the dead like the undertaker meme. Dean Smith. Yeah, he's gone to Norwich. These Billy Gilmore's new grandpa. I love it. I love it. What do you love? I mean, if you've not read the news, Dean Smith of Aston Villa was confirmed this morning as Norwich's new manager only two and a half year deal. Back in a Premier League job just 8 days after being fired, Dave, what do you think? They obviously look at him as a man who can help them escape relegation, ignoring the fact that he took Aston Villa into the relegation zone this year. Obviously, some large problems they lost Jack Grealish, but that doesn't really explain Aston Villa's run of form this year. They certainly spent the money. So yeah, it's confusing. It's confusing. And for all of those people who say the English managers never get a chance in the Premier League anymore, I think this is truth that this is proof that they really do. I love the idea that this is the man who could get nothing out of Norwich's when they are when he brought him to Aston Villa so he's gone back to the sauce. Where he can strengthen the back line. Please God, squeeze some goals out up top. Todd Cantwell. Get ready to be Jack Grealish 2.0, Billy Gilmore, you can be my job again and Josh sergeant Ginger Danny ings. The sweetest part of this relegation fight is this for Norwich to survive. Dean Smith, essentially, has to drag Aston Villa back into the Maya. Can we get one final to us with the exclamation point in a bottle rod? Jagermeister bring us home. Aw, Dave, a raise, my shot of jagermeister. This bolt of human emotion in a glass and the official shot of the men in blazers podcast to the United States men's national team two Mexico nil. And just a delicious headlines that it created. You know, both, I think the record the sporting tabloid had the headline hello to the new giants. My favorite was undoubtedly father and son. In cancer, you know, which is I guess the Mexican version of Pedro's Yankees, oh my daddy quote. A lot of the analysis in those articles was mocking the Mexican performance rather than praising the U.S., but man, these are back pages cut from our dreams. I didn't think I'd live to see the day football. Ultimately, it's about finding joy wherever you can and this. This is joy. Let's savor every second, courage..

"It paid off first a chasse of light from a wepa cross shot across as it's known in most elite Zambian circles, the left Alison flailing to paraphrase Michael Scott quoting himself, quoting Wayne Gretzky. If you don't cross, you don't score. That's football. And by the way, Zambia, the copper bullets, the new trend. Like pats and daca became a first time Zambian goal scorer. Can you imagine if Zambia's best athletes play football David? Yeah, it's amazing. You know, my dad May he rest in peace. We used to joke on the pod that he had he revealed to us once that he had a townhouse in Milton Keynes that we'd never known about and we imagine that there was another family in Milton Keynes. My dad also spent a lot of time in Lusaka, Zambia. There are some skyscrapers and civic buildings in Lusaka that my father designed and built and I may well have another family in Lusaka Zambia. So I'm always very fond of Zambia. Oh, I love that Zambia your Crystal Palace into my side side check. Check on your chopper. My international side chip. By the way, copper bullets proper footballing, Brighton, contented to pull forward, leaving themselves exposed, but what choice did they have? Their only way forward was just to go for it and it's great life advice. Just be yourself and it paid off a team goal that was honestly Liverpool esque in the execution turning defense into attack. Lalala, the brains between the lines flowing play slippy in tos that love watching chassis all this tiny little dancer feet and suddenly lethal finish that brightener cried out for as a stunt and feel empty now. Is this the emirate? Sang the delirious Brighton fans. And my lord David, Graham Potter, you know, instead Manchester City in the eye and played defiantly even in defeat. Tribute to his tactics. He was asked what he did this week facing honestly, the best team in the world in he said for a second time in a week. And he described his team's performance with one word to me the correct one. He shared his team had, quote, courage. That's the perfect word in men in blazers speak absolutely they had courage. But what do you think for Liverpool? They dent in the title surge. You know, clop said people don't respect Brighton. They might not win 35 games this season, but 38 times a season they will give someone a proper game. Yeah, I think this is, you know, I think we fall out under man cities, you know, lost to palace above. This is just a blip, because it doesn't take the underlying quality or direction away from Liverpool, you know, if you check the odds on your DraftKings app roger, it is still Liverpool and city looking, you know, very, very short odds to do. To be there or thereabouts at the end of the Premier League season, I'm not too concerned about it. This is a draw that folic a loss for Liverpool and to me it should ultimately be notched off to just how good protein and how well biennial right now rather than trigger any kind of existential crisis, Liverpool, face West Ham next weekend, and we will see if that is right. Okay, we're going to be back to talk the rest of this weekend's Premier League action, including Everton, roger, after a few words from the GFL ps at better help..

Who lived every moment to its fullest. I miss him greatly. And oh you do too. Dave we all day men in blazers and went affiliate. Cuba's absence listened to his favourite john mellencamp song minutes to memories and fail like i'm back in a booth eight probably the twin anchors in chicago with him surrounded by a late night suddenly seems young and everything still feels possible. Carriage brought even fluid. When we did live shows in chicago he just went to not just flew around and came back so he was flying in for a show okay. He would have enjoyed the football this weekend and particularly this game liverpool to manchester city to raj the clash between the last two primarily champions. Lived up to its billing and then some city would dominant in the first half with phil. Foden streaking down. The left making stopgap right back. Jimmy mills looked like he belonged in a scouts over forty league but livable escape the first forty five unscathed and came out for the second. Half that plops on fire on fifty nine minutes. They took the lead when most seller skipped down the right and slotted in saudi saudi-omani who stood it past edison. Somehow city hit back ten minutes later. When they're forementioned foden lashed one pasta alison to make it one one but in the seventy six th minute a non fungible piece of most salam magic egyptian used an amalgam of power pace and precision sapiro at through the city. Defense and bank. One of edison's post while ago but this game would just not quit in the first minute cave sent a curling effort of joe matab into the net type things up at two and that's how it ended. Liverpool are in second place rob city earn third both just a privilege to watch roger was. They've just can we. Just i mean yeah. I mean clock and for me. I'm a horrible person filled with hay yet but he even i got some nice parts to know really not i mean even i a horrible person with no nice parts at the record just half they take off to brief team. This was this was. This was an epic heavyweight rumble that we were served up. It was magnificent. The last two champions two of the most incredible managers the game both evenly poised nine wins from twenty one and counts as against each other in germany and england coming into it with a clash of attacking style defending champion man city with that cashmere stylings against liverpool studded leather jacket team pat guardiola big tactical. Move coming into this leashed. The early fall quasi. I would again jeff. Oh pay at dusty moonshine described adversely. He said that jacket a master class in how to take to individually great articles of clothing and ruined them with a frankenstein esque mash up. Anyway that may have been a symbol of much of what ails city but did love david before kick-off pat saying something beautiful about his rover. We were you and club. He said the head to head with the german has made me a better manager. I mean that's a big. That's the kind of spirit really infused the game. Not not the old evil premier league marina when vanja kind of hatred but there was an optimistic. Julia headed i swim. I've described this post. Lasso ism roach. We're living in a posted lasso world where everybody has to be woven positive. I can't think of anything that would have confused. Yoga club more before the game. Then the pets words This was a masterstroke as far as i'm concerned. The only tenant confused more with mike dean humility. That probably would have been the only thing that could have been more society by. I love that if we all living in a post laso world. I am even. If it is a simulation dave simulate no thinker of your thoughts. I was genuinely celebrate before kickoff there was mid we reverse in paris thought brutal goal of away games poised to come to an end the victory against chelsea followed by the messy and juiced fever dream in paris which left us agreeing to reevaluate cities like strike around a game by game basis. And this one pet open with jack really full snide spoken a flood off. He finally go a hundred million pounds. Strike your after rule for the english press but what you have first half day back in. We'd city dominated truly madly deeply. Livable can get a kickable on they. Why would wanna finish a david. I realize because goals ruin possession and possession gives you control. Why would you give the ball back to your opponent so they can kick off again is his mindset. Maybe a little bit i mean. Definitely greenish in the false nine role. Even though he seemed to sort of you know. Share it with phil foden You know it dragged the defense out and it creates space behind them that a city just exploited again and again and again with just such. I mean liverpool. Liverpool were reduced to just like hoofing to pull out from the back and just waiting for somebody to come at them again. Everything credible became pass. Pass pass almost like park in the bus. But only after driving that bursts up into your opponent's area. There was just an electric exhilarating moment which is almost been forgotten in all fully pocket then running like a tiny king through five of place and they bizarre the backwards forwards. It was just an incestuous crazy kickoff. Return i tell you there were four four incredible goals in this game off oglesby good including what would definitely be my top three primarily goals. Ever mosala go. I mean i just that was just like something. I've i've not seen in this league behind andros townsend. You take any of. Its goals this season. But i did say most surprising. I said the most incredible so bernardo silva moment may have still been my favorite moment in the entire match. It was it was more exhilarating. The most goals really was. I am cynical dark. I watch a lot of football. It takes a lot to move. I was off my chest. Yes yeah it was. It was only stolen. More beautiful light michelangelo's david for being fluid with the mess in this imperfect but respects go more respect for the save. Emc made a pair of great ones in the first half as the game became one of the brutal nil-nil beat downs. Awful time city charging melda over novinova in for the injured. trent david. Did you watch this first. Half performance incredible bird as part would say include the bull city not just physically incredible but at the end of a week and which say play chelsea impair streak mentally incredible tactically. Incredible the same time. We you thinking the hood digan pet trying too hard. You either just need a sweater or holiday. Not faith.

"It's going to be lost very fast. Yeah i will say to the remarkable voices in the start moment have been becky sour brewed and making klingenberg to play as who all the players respect. I'm rivera so much of the lead. Bilden has been done as you say by says. I'm not frontal face. Some of the is a deeply devoted others like washington spirit steep baldwin and former utah. Royals dow loy hansen seem to be truly crappy human beings but the incorporation of players. A diverse set of players as into league leadership is is really meaningful. It is utterly crucial and the last point won't make these players. They need a safe space to report abuse. A truly new choi truly independent third party. That doesn't work for the league in their interests. You know the leagues essentially they are leagues. Ultimately are run by commissioners commissioners jobs. It's not their job description. But ultimately this is the way they operate they run the world for that team owners so we need a place. All parties trust only only by engaging to play is a meaningful conversations now now not later but now can apart way built for real change and light drive out.

"Men in blazers on the nbc sports network from the embassy row studios the crap part of bedford. New york in the crap out of west hollywood california roaches. The many blazes podcast. We back like just in failed lot of football to discuss some of it glorious but we should start dave with one of the darkest theories football along tongue. Yes roach the dot news. That emerged late last week concerning the nws l. This news devastating as a human being an american and and as a football fan in equal measure. I'm still reeling. If you've read the bombshell revelations when by meglena incredible incredible work by her in the athletic about the abuses perpetrated over an incredible period of tell him by north carolina courage coach paul riley and abuse of power sexual coercion alleged to have occurred across several clubs since two thousand ten brazenly partying replay players grooming sexual coercion. That was known covered up and enabled. This article has twelve Women reporting him stories about a patent. That's now all too familiar from really from the entertainment industry. We've seen it. We've seen in politics now. Infecting the national women's soccer league there was meant to lift women reminder as i said on fridays podcast just building spaces for women doesn't mean tool that they are safe spaces in fact receive with. Us gymnastics the become targets for predators to sweep into positions of power and insert themselves troll. Light gatekeepers preying on the hopes and dreams of their victims in the most devastatingly destructive way. Shes horrifying david. it's i'm a teddy. They're not many times that you pick up the paper even though you do it on the internet these days and read a story that that shocks that you just never would have expected to read but this is something that i just didn't see coming in a million years in a still shot in so many different levels yes. The courage fired riley in the wake of the story. Yeah as so. Many plays may clear the league. The league frontal face have been informed of the coaches offenses on a number of occasions and not just fell to act but almost cover over. This is another man protecting situation on like whoa is going on with rinaldi and the credible rate charges which are brushed out by every night effect. Minute won the goal. he schools that how. How do these things become almost an open secret. David yeah i mean i. I wouldn't conflict those two too much. Only because that you know has been reported on and pretty Pretty extensively this seems to be sort of a wave of shock. Not just men protecting men. But lisa. Bear the commissioner of the ws l. Seemed to be aware of this as well. And it's just as you said it's institutional it becomes. Somehow men have still managed to sort of imposed power over the women that running the league. It's just a it is just so shocking and the fact that it's been going on so long and the fact that involved so many young women is just It's just horrific we need to say is impossible for us. To truly analyzes to blake's this awful situation can never be mance playing the way you know and i agree with the silence the way the play is silence for so long by that power. Play is hey you have been since its inception. I mean they've given everything to create a league everything that they will tolerate. So much with with qui- acne not. Just you know we we knew about the crappy rate show tells we knew about. The substandard travel buses. That mysteriously catch fire indirect plane flights just to craziest booking plane flights to game from eighty to be via c that has been as well covered but the pressure building a correa career. This already a campaign ongoing the past two months amongst the everyday club players. Not the not the ones who've achieved international fame but but the everyday club players who are building this league campaign no more side hustles to fight just to be able to sustain a career as a footballer as opposed to having to work part time an amazon or cleaning homes. Some of them have spoken up. They've had today because the pay is not a living wage and hunger. We realize to play the game. We love fulltime. Means that the so much that you do not say publicly including as it turns out this horror david. This state humid horror for fear. That when you do either nothing will be done. As is the case and i can't imagine what it must have felt like for these women who did report it and so so nothing done or worse that it will come back to be held against that fair is just mortifying yeah major. Us female soccer stars now saying burned leak down. Shut it down. They shut down play this weekend. And the entire future the entire future of the nwf sell certainly in. His current form is in question. What now is really the question. It does pay me to say. Make no mistake. the league. the league is in is a massive trouble. This path finding league fall. Not just north american play as this is a league which is inspired leagues. All over europe to to grow in. Its wake but i'll say this. Whol fans are some of the most devoted and deeply connected to that teams to that players and they are. They are utterly devastated. Not just by the raleigh news but by the league they loves response in the wake of or the lack of a response this week as well as their their complicity for years the commissioners involvement and covering it all up and and really the tone-deaf reaction to the league has had this week pointing and oversight committee to try and lead the league through this devastatingly. Turbulent time has no racial diversity. When you see that you can see a partway and i pray. This doesn't happen but where the top players distance themselves from the league. The the fans follow them and protest and the sponsors. The league's lifeblood. Don't wanna touch him. Unless you say buds darkness on the edge of town so area so this period has to be navigated with true change. the will be no room for just surface. Pr efforts lay no room at all unless they respect to us cup. Who run the league until recently. They acted forcefully bruin last night. Former acting attorney general sally. Yates t lead an investigation into the allegations on their behalf. But i do believe david. Crisis does reveal true leaders and the players have used that leverage to flex their muscles and have a weekend of games cancelled. The league has to engage these players. The the answer can only be a believe worked out in partnership with the players. What i fear is that you know. The free market for sports is highly competitive. We've already seen in many of the top female plaza world starts apply their trade in. You know the european leagues and suddenly you know europe. Those european clubs as we've discussed are starting to get their act together in the women's game and unless us soccer and the wfl and these women you know these leaders that you know we have been so impressed by and continue impressed by unless they act fast and decisively and bring commercial interests on board that means owners that means sponsors. That means tv networks. It's going to be lost very fast. Yeah i will say to the remarkable voices in the start moment have.

"More beauty take it away. Hey ryan how are you. This is shaun from philadelphia big supporter of the philadelphia union and also a big supporter of the us men's national team. My question has to do with the national team roster and lessen the caning being back on the squad what does mckinney has to do either on the field off the field or both to regain the trust of his manager and a teammate. Thanks for everything you do courage. Oh sure miss philadelphia. Cheese steaks look western mckinney. Will today. we honestly don't know because let's remind ourselves it's not been made public. Exactly what western did say anyone. Prognosticating is really making up and the truth is and this will not shock football as a human beings as sensitive ones device. No doubt a number of players were burnt by west and in the last cycle westerns behavior in the last cycle in. Us soccer most certainly was football. As i've learned this they are incredibly pragmatic human beings. They want to win. And i learned this interview. Eric wynalda from my american fiasco cost the episode. Where john hawkes started original captain. America is mysteriously booted from the team ahead of the nineteen ninety eight world cup after having an affair with elders partner talking to alexi lalas marcelo balboa and to himself about it well this is what they had to say starting with lawless. I was angry. And maybe maybe i'm being flipped. Maybe i'm i'm not being sensitive to eric or anybody else but i would have said. Get over him all right. Let's go let's go win and you guys can fight later. You can hate each other. I don't care. But i want him on my team because he's a good soccer player and i just wanted to win as a professional. I will forgive you a lot as long as you're going to help me win. I think we all thought the same thing. Marcelo balboa harsher was a good player artsy harks deserve to be on that team knowing. Even what you knew now. It doesn't matter it's sad but it's personal life and had nothing to do the way he was playing. It had nothing to do with the chemistry of this team off the field. That's something that harks you went all the had to work out but once you cross that line it goes away and we become a family again and we play because that's what we have to. That's the competitive we. Have we get our job done and we do a well. You see professional football list. They're the athletes and the way they think the way they behave the code. They live their lives by. It's just different to those of us. Who miss civilian. This is everyone else. I thought that if i can handle it. Steve should have been able to handle it and he to this day. I think that that ripping john off our team was ripped the heart out our team. Was it a situation where you like so angry that you couldn't be in the hall now. Look i don't know never. I think i have a unique understanding of that man and okay. So you've learned a lesson about someone's character learned a lesson about but the game always needs to be paramount. You're you're representing your country. We don't have time for that and in a way when you life is crushing off the field this football. The football saves you and anybody. That's ever Gone through something really sometimes. Horrific we've seen. I've had teammates that have lost. Their wife. teammates have lost a child. I've to to be a teammate. In those moments what you what you realize is the game truly is a great escape. And when you're playing the game you you're able to compartmentalize to a certain extent and some of the issues that are going on in your life. Go away because you get to enjoy the game at a whole new level and it is.

"Are you like one. Game is not a patent or like this is a new day. Yeah look. I do think it's one great performance. But that is the best primarily performance that also had under our data i think that significant certainly since the fa cup final win against chelsea. And it's just the fact that it's coming from these young players these players who as you say playing so well with each other. You know ben white starting to like a very good by by the way aaron ram stale starting to look like a very good by greenwich jacka you know. That's the greenwich jacket arsenal. Fans want to see in the center of the park. So i thought it was a great performance and i think they will beat a lot of teams playing in that style. They won't play that well every week but playing that style You know with oba scoring again I think they can. They can hurt a lot of teams. So i think that game could be significant. That could be a vendetta punked for them. A turning point for them in not only this season but the turning point for them over the last few years. I would be feeling very good if i was an fan right now. I hope i hope. I don't want to say one. Big game is not a patent combat when you can play like this consistently your old. Let's talk after. Next weekend's brian gay i do. They think that will be twists and turns for both of these teams guna say. Let's just enjoy this weekend. For what as and go no deeper a weekend in which we you know.

That's what it seems like today a year and Three or four months later. And that's just a sad sad story but let's flash back to sharon garrison who was in breckenridge colorado so not too far north. I believe of salida where The morpheus lived but that was in the year. Two thousand where sharon was married to Her husband at the time chuck air since she had been married before and divorce and so forth had a few daughters similar to the more fused. They've got a couple of daughters Sharon garrison had three daughters. I believe however There was a lot of bad blood between her and the husband chuck pearson on their property records. Colorado i think authorities or well-versed in what was going on with them and the fights. They had some of the threats that The husband had made to the wife and even the wife calling nine one one Probably about a year and a half before her murder of saying. Hey if you find my body you know who did. It was the the husband and so what happened. There is similar to suzanne more few. There was a missing persons case. One day she's there next day she's gone and as you know in the suzanne more few case the The bike was found by the of the road as kind of a symbol of something happened to her. The bike was machine She likes to go for bike rides. It's mother's day. Yeah kind of makes sense that that could happen. She could go out on her bike and disappear somehow in the original kind of idea. That berry was leading people with his dad. Something happened to her. Like wild animals are mountain. Lines got to her. However in the case of sharon garrison it wasn't a bike but a chevy blazer and the husband had literally taken the car and driven it to another area to kinda make. It look mysterious that she had been in that maybe she left in the car. Abandoned it on the side of the road and then something happened to her and was abducted. Which is you know trying to take the cops off the trail. That you know divert them that something happened to them other than a domestic dispute so i find that similar in that.

Kane failed to report to tottenham hotspur back from his holidays for his first day of pre-season training thing. If it was a nfl cam you'd call him a hold out. He did not turn up monday morning. He's attempting to force through a move away from the club. Reportedly to manchester city kane has told the club he wants to leave and believes he has a gentlemen's agreement. But this is a hard core negotiating. Move designed to play hard ball with the heart. Bolinger of hard bullets club champion. Dan levy our paula. You make you pay well. Yeah well. I mean i think he's in a somewhat losing position he's like going into third round of of an amateur boxing match and he's behind on points and he's come up with something new and that's not turning up and i think that they never would have believed the hurricane. Was that kind of a player. That kind of a man who would let them down in this way because this really it puts taught them in a very difficult position because at a certain point the fans are gonna turn on this player. Anyway you know it's going to be very very difficult. He wants out of the club so badly you get into a very tough brand position with your own fans in the player. So we'll see if this works a fascinating and deeply emotional. Down harry k one of todd's. Since he was eleven years old he loves the club and this this will hurt him he is. He is risking tainting. His legacy with the spurs faithfull ole speaking to many my major support on them. They understand what he's saying. They know how badly wants the win things which means he's going to leave. The club loves but it's all happening you've ever one year left on his contract kane is essentially saying to really want to tottenham. Do you really want us to end in a brutal war in which will all bat that's essentially negotiating strategy right. You're saying you'll oh pat on the eve of the season a sting used to say this is my advice to you taught them but dan levy if you love someone them not three on like.

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