We're also brought to you by The Ringer Podcast Network where I put up a new rewatchables on Monday night. We did the big chill. It was very, very exciting. I have Kyle Brandt coming on Monday's podcast. I'm just gonna tell you the movie now because it is gonna be the best moment of your weekend if you spent two hours watching this classic. We're doing Toy Soldiers. It really brings everything possible to the table. So if you wanna watch it ahead of time, there it is. That podcast is going up Monday night. If you wanna hear stuff about the debate, we have Tara Paul and Mary's podcast, Somebody's Gotta Win. That reacted to it as well as the press box with Brian Curtis and David Shoemaker.

I hope you check that out as well. Hope you're checking out theringer .com. And on this podcast, gonna talk about the dame trade at the top. We're gonna bring in Ben Thompson from the Techery newsletter, which he's been on this podcast I think four weeks ago. And he's a huge Bucks fan. He's gonna give the Bucks fan side of things. We're gonna do million dollar picks. And then old friend Seth Meyers talking about a whole bunch of stuff. So really good podcast. It's all next. First, our friends from Pro Jam. What's up? All right, I'm taping this on Thursday afternoon. Normally when there's a big MBA trade, I always do the emergency trade reaction right after the podcast. But we just put up a podcast on Tuesday. So I decided to play it a little differently this time. I wanted a little distance, I wanted to listen to stuff, read stuff, and try to form some big picture opinions coming out of this. So I have four smaller ones, then one big one. First one, I thought Portland did an incredible job with this trade. I really liked this trade, especially everyone was trying to bully them in June and July about, oh, you got to take Miami's offer. You just got to. It's where he wants to go. It's the only offer you're going to get. And guess what? They waited. They played it perfectly. They stared Miami down, and they got a much better deal. First of all, they get the Drew Holiday piece that they can flip into a bunch out of their stuff, which we'll talk about in one second. I love the DeAndre Ayton gamble. As you know, on this podcast, I am a big DeAndre Ayton guy. Not in the sense of I'm the biggest fan of his in the world, but I'm a fan of the asset. I just think I love the valued assets, no matter what it is. Whatever market we're talking about, DeAndre Ayton, 18 and 10 for his career, 60 % field goals percentage, 25 years old. He's played in 45 playoff games. He played four rounds in the 2021 finals. Last year, he got his ass kicked by Jokic. Oh, sorry. Like, that never happens. And Phoenix just sold on him, which I can't wait to talk about. But just from a Portland standpoint, they not only get Ayton in whatever they get for holiday, they get the 29 first, they get the two swaps, and they dump Nurkic. Nurkic hasn't had a healthy start to finish all the way through the playoffs here since 2018, which I'm positive was a long time ago. He's basically 12 and 8. He's, you know, a 50 % shooter. I made a list of the top 30 centers. I encourage you to do this at home, because what's more fun than making lists of NBA centers? I can't imagine anything. I made a list of who I thought were the best assets of the center position for talent, contract, everything. He was 29th on my list. The only person I had ahead of him who's technically a starter, unless you start talking about the Detroit or Charlotte guys, was Zubats on the Clippers. I thought he was the 29th best center asset in the league. And Phoenix, you know, just quickly to go to them, they're trying to win this year. They got worse. They turned Ayton's money into Nurkic and Grayson Allen and Nasir Little. Grayson Allen, we already know with him, he can't play in playoff series. We saw him 22. We saw it last year. I heard and read in some places like that, I got two rotation players. Did they? Is Nurkic a playoff rotation player? Is Grayson Allen a playoff rotation player? Because I'm positive he's not. So for the same money that they were spending on Ayton, they got three guys that I don't think are going to help them. In 25, the money comes down a little bit to 23 million just for Nurkic and Little, which is 7 million less than Ayton. And then in 26, that money goes up to 25 .5. But I don't understand what Phoenix was doing. Why not wait to see if Ayton clicks with Vogel? Vogel has such a good history with centers. He rejuvenated Dwight Howard on the 2020 Lakers. He basically created Roy Hibbert's career in 2013 with the defense verticality thing. I thought he was going to do a good job with Ayton. I'm stunned that they gave up on him. I'm almost waiting for one of those, now they tell us stories when, you know, that's where Brian Curtis calls them, where like a week after something happens, there's this kind of notebook dump where it's like, here's seven terrible DeAndre Ayton stories. So maybe that'll happen. But for Phoenix just to be like, cool, we locked this down, man. We got Nurkic. You're trying to win the title. You have KD and Booker and Beal. And like, what are you guys doing? Anyway, from Portland's standpoint, I love the Ayton thing. I love that they didn't get bullied. And I know they're going to turn Drew Holliday into something. So this to me was at least an A minus for them, for where they were two months ago, where Dave's like, I want to go to Miami. That's it. And if you don't trade me there, that's kind of fucked up. And they made this work as it got reported that, uh, I think in the athletic, that he expanded his list to Brooklyn and to Milwaukee in the last two weeks. And that's what Portland was waiting on. You know, they were banking on the fact that he's a competitive dude. He's one of the best 75 pairs ever. He wanted a situation settled. So, you know, you wait, you wait, you wait, they expand the list and then you go. Uh, there's a Drew Holliday piece to this. That's awesome. He becomes a contender prize. I wouldn't call this a Drew Holliday sweepstakes. I reserved sweepstakes for the superstars, but it's a mini sweepstakes. This is somebody that could have a huge impact on the playoff race. You know, not only the usual suspects, everybody's talking about Boston, ironically, Miami is a really good fit for him. And in some ways, um, I'm a little more scared of them with Miami than Dame in some ways, especially at a much cheaper contract with giving up less and keeping some of their assets. Philly, if they could pull it off, they have to be in there in Golden State, Minnesota. I think I have to mention Sacramento, I think is a team that if they could figure out how to get Drew without giving up their core, which is basically Keegan Murray and Sabonis and Fox, like that's, you know, could Davion Mitchell be in that trade with some, with a salary and some picks, who knows. The team that I love for Drew Holliday is OKC. I have OKC, you know, I started doing my MBA research for the over -under spot and I haven't landed on a number for them yet, but to me, they feel like a high forties team with Chet and with the growth of their young guys. And if you just like, let's say they traded Lou Dort and a bunch of their picks, maybe two firsts and two of their lesser picks or three firsts and a second, whatever it is. And they just say, fuck it. And they get Drew and you put him with Giddy and SGA and Jalen fucking awesome Williams and Chet Holmgren and all these other dudes they have, that might be a top three team in the West. I mean, that, that's starting to give me some early 2010s OKC vibes. So where he goes is going to be important. I just feel like there was so much Drew Holliday slander the last couple of days. You know, he's one of my favorite players. Even Haralabob, who was the chairman of the board of the Drew Holliday fan club for years and would have the benefit dinners there and, you know, just did a lot of yeoman's work on that front. And even he was like, yeah, yeah, Dame's better than Drew. That trade makes sense for Milwaukee. I was hurt, Haralabob. I was 100 % hurt by that. But you know, Drew got his ass kicked by Jimmy Butler in the playoffs last year. I get it. It happens. Jimmy was unbelievable. I feel like he would have kicked anybody's ass. By the way, why is Drew Holliday guarding Jimmy Butler? That speaks more to some of the issues with Milwaukee. He was never supposed to be a point guard and a creator. I think he was always better as an off -the -ball guy. We saw that with Rondo and New Orleans and just in general. I want to see him with a point guard. I want to see him just being unleashed, not having the ball a lot, just worrying about hitting threes, being an occasional, you know, make -shit -happen guy and being like the third or fourth best guy on a team without having the offensive responsibility to have. All their half court issues got blamed on him for the last couple of years. And I get it. They weren't like an awesome half -court team, even the other one in the finals, but I really value that dude. I had him, even I did the trade value list in August and I had him 37th and I had Dame 23rd. I think he's one of the best 30 players in the league still. He's 33 years old, which, you know, I'm going to talk in a second about when guards hit their mid -30s, but just in general, I think he's a real asset. If he goes to a team like the Celtics and they can keep Derek White and Tatum and Brown in the center, it's like, look out, man. So little mini sweepstakes, rarely do we get the trade, but then we still get another asset to talk about. Thank you for everyone involved in the trade. And then the fourth small point is just that, you know, not rocket science, Milwaukee bought some Giannis time here. They have one of the best 20 players of all time. They were staring down the barrel of a situation that was not good. I was talking about it on this podcast in late June and early July. I thought he was going to put them on the clock. I thought Mark Lasry selling his stake was a really bad sign for all of this because that dude is smart. As I laid out in June, that guy is really smart. And if he's feeling like, you know what, it's time for me to sell my buck stock, that makes me nervous. And then all the stuff that Giannis said and did, which I thought he did really fairly and really smartly. And I think that dude's about titles and that's it. And I know we say that about players, but I think in his case, I don't think he cares about, you know, what's my legacy, how do I compare against Dirk DeWhisky, any of that stuff. I just think he wants more rings. I mean, think about the guys who have won two rings out of the best 35 guys on my list of my pyramid. Those are all guys in my top 35 that won multiple wings. You go to the one -ring side, Jerry West, Oscar, Moses, Dirk, Jokic, Giannis, Pettit, Garnett, Kawhi, Rick Barry. That's the list he's on now. I certainly don't think he's looking at that list going, I got to get away from these guys, but it's a slightly different list. I think when you win multiple rings in multiple situations, it elevates you in a certain way. I think he fundamentally understands that at least a little bit. I want to be the best player since LeBron James. I think that's a thing that he wants. How am I going to do that? I need more rings. I need more finals trips. He knew from last year and maybe even the Boston series that they just weren't good enough. Whether this trade is going to be the thing that propels them, we'll find out, but he's been in the league 10 years, two MVPs, five first teams, two second teams, and now we have this little two -year window. Kawhi and the Raptors was a one -year window. This is a two -year window, I feel like. With Giannis, he's got two years left in his deals. So does Lopez. Middleton has two in a player option. Dame's got two, and then this crazy $120 million player option extension thingy that he has that just keeps going and going. It's probably two years. There's a world where this could go terribly this season, at least for what the expectations are, and then maybe it becomes Kawhi, Raptors. Maybe Giannis is like, you know what? That didn't work. Trade me. And the Bucks, who have no picks left and no future, they look at it next summer, and they go, all right. We tried it. Giannis, what can we get for you? Dame, what can we get? And they just do a reboot, rehaul. Remember, they won in 2021, which just takes so much pressure out of this. It's so much different than the Clippers situation, where they went all in on Kawhi and Paul George. They give up all those picks and SGA, and they've gotten nothing out of it. They haven't even made the finals. So it's got to happen. I think they at least probably have to make the finals. If they get bounced in round two, do I think Giannis is going to stay because they made this Dame -Mower trade? Probably not. So that leads to the big question, is how good of a trade was this? So there's a big picture angle on Dame, and it's going to sound negative, but I really don't want it to sound negative because I think Dame, I voted for him for NBA Top 75. I think he's been one of the best guards in the last 15 years. I think there's a ton of great things you can say, and there's a chance that he goes to Milwaukee, and this thing is fucking awesome. I know any Celtic fan I've talked to, including Isaiah, who's helping produce this podcast today, the Giannis -Dame pick and roll is just terrifying. Other than Jokic and Murray, it's going to be the single most unstoppable offensive play in the league. It is. We are conceding that point. The spot Dame is in right now, big picture -wise, it's weird. He's a superstar, but he's not, and we've seen guys like this before. I judge superstars by, do you have the resume statistically, and is your team succeeding consistently at a certain level? You can't totally say that about Dame. He's never been on a 55 -win team. He's missed the playoffs completely four times in 11 years. He said three first -round exits. He made the Final Four once in 2019, which was really lucky because Golden State and Houston were the two best teams, and then they got smoked. He's never been on a true contender ever. Instinctively, you go, well, that's not his fault. Who's he played with? Well, he played with LaMarcus Aldridge and CJ McCollum and a couple other guys, but not really anybody. The reason I'm putting this up is there's a success element that he has not had yet that for somebody with his resume is actually kind of unusual. I went and I looked up how many guards in the history of the league averaged 22 points a game for their career and played at least 700 games. I thought the list would be like 20. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was walking into. Only I think 75 guys have averaged 22 a game. So I went and I looked up the list, and it was 10 guys, 700 games, 22 a game for their career. There were some guys who came close like David Thompson, who I think is one of the best guards I've seen in the last 45 years, but had a short career and had some drug issues. He didn't make it. He didn't play enough games. Pete Maravich, 24 .2 points a game, but he didn't play enough games. Kyrie hasn't played enough games yet. Bradley Beale is five games away. I'm actually kind of glad the cutoff's at 700 so we don't have to talk about him. And then Mitchell and Trey Young aren't there yet. There's only 10 guys that made it, and the 10 guys are all fucking awesome. And again, I mentioned this in the context of Dame, who we think he is versus the success he's had. So the 10 guys, Michael Jordan, 30 .1, Jerry West, 27 .1, Allen Averson, 26 .7, George Gervin, 26 .2, Oscar Robertson, 25 .7, Kobe, 25 .0, Harden, 24 .7, Curry, 24 .6, Wade, 22, barely made it, and Russ, 22 .4, and then Dame is at 25 again. All right, what does he not have that those other guys have? Well, MJ, don't need to talk about him. Don't need to talk about Jerry West, who's the freaking logo. Allen Averson, pretty good comparison, right? Big stats, really memorable player, but not a ton of success. Here's the difference. Averson made the finals once. He won an MVP. Dame has done neither of those things. George Gervin was the best scoring guard of the 70s. He made two final fours. He had some bad luck. He really, in 79, really should have came close. And some of it's on him, right? He could have come through. Bobby Dandridge is the one that ended up coming through for the Bullets. They lose. But two final fours, he had four top five MVP finishes, five first teams, four second teams. He was just unassailably the best guard in the league until MJ. Oscar Robertson, don't need to go through him, but he won a ring and an MVP. Kobe, five rings and an MVP. Eleven first teams for Kobe, by the way. James Harden, three final fours, an MVP, six top five MVP finishes, six first team MBAs. And even though Harden has never made the finals as the best guy, he made it with OKC as the sixth man, you could build a contender around Harden. We saw it. We haven't really seen it with Dame. I think that's a fair thing to bring up. Curry, four rings, two MVPs, you know, the Curry thing. Dwayne Wade, three rings, two top five MVPs, two first teams, three second teams. He's more in the Dame waters a little bit, but he had the 2006 finals and he was the second best guy with LeBron on those heat teams. And then Westbrook, who you would say, well, Dame had a better career than Westbrook. Did he? Westbrook made the finals in 2012. He was second best guy on that team. Almost made the finals in 2016. He won an MVP. He had two first teams and five second teams. It's at least like a real argument. And I think when you look at Dame, he only had that one 2019 round three, got bounced. He's only had one top five MVP finish. He's only had one first team MBA and four second team MBAs. Really, really good top 75 career. But the piece that's missing is, have you been on a really good team? Have you made a real run at it? Which is why, you know, I think this Milwaukee trade is so much fun. This is his real chance. I get nervous about a couple things with this trade. One is that, you know, if you look at the 33 and older guards who average 22 points a game in a season. Jordan did it twice. Curry did it twice. Still going. Kobe did it three times. Jerry West twice. Sam Jones once. Hal Greer once. That's the entire list. Now the NBA is different. We have more three -pointers now. It's easier to score. Scoring is the easiest it's ever been. Guys can play at a longer age. So I'm not ruling out Dane being good for the next three years. But just pointing out, history is saying, be a little nervous. In general with guards, like Chris Paul, we saw from age 35 to 36 to 37, like it just dropped. But that's two years older than Dane. Maybe it's fine. I just worry about guards. We have not a lot of instances with guards in their mid -30s of them either peaking as players or being able to sustain whatever success they had during their prime. It always starts to go down with really no exceptions, except for Steph Curry. He's the only non -exception. So if your case is Dane's as good as Steph Curry, or Dane can be as potent as Steph Curry on a winning team, like, you know, Steph Curry is better than Dane, but I'm not going to argue that he couldn't do a lot of the stuff that Curry did in Golden State. The bigger issue for me, the age I'm definitely worried about. Dane has not been healthy the last couple of years, and we have not seen him play nine straight months at playoff basketball with a big bullseye on his back. Everybody coming after you, you're the best team. We haven't seen him do that ever, much less than the last couple of seasons. So can he stay up? Can he stay healthy? That's one thing. The defense with Dane just got kind of swept under the rug the last couple days, and I don't really understand it because there's five categories of defensive player I feel like. There's excellent, there's good, there's average, there's not so good, and then there's bad. And I think Dane's a bad defender. I think the stats back it up. Like, his defensive rating last year was 245 out of the guards. He's the 245th guard for defensive rating. You know, 117 .4 individual defensive rating is 483 overall. Portland's team's always defensively, it was the Achilles heel for them. Partly because of Dane, because he couldn't guard anybody. He's too small. And, you know, think about what we saw from the playoffs the last couple years. I think about the 2020 bubble Celtics playoffs, not infrequently, because I think that team had a chance to potentially win a title. What happened? Everyone hunted Kemba Walker. It was hunting season. It's like, where is he? Got to get a switch. Got to get Kemba Walker guarding somebody who's bigger, or got to beat him off the dribble, and it just became a hunt session with him. And basically, he got played out of the league. He's not in the league anymore. You know, we had this with Isaiah Thomas, too, in the mid -2010s. I think it's been an issue with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics certainly went at him in the playoff series with Brooklyn a couple years ago. Curry, you saw, who I think is a better defender than people give him credit for, but the And he's a much better defender than Dame is. Jordan Poole is somebody that got hunted in playoff series recently. Chris Paul, obviously, is a big one. Jalen Brunson, remember what the Heat did to him? Mitchell, when he was on Utah, this was a huge issue. And then Trae Young, obviously. My fear with Dame is he's a DH, and I think in Portland, part of the reasons he was able to put up the stats he did was because he wasn't playing defense, right? It was just, how many points can I score? My team isn't very good, and I'm just going to do my thing. He's an incredible offensive player. But how much of a trade -off is the defense, right? Well, you think, all right, well, Milwaukee, they're really good defensively. They'll be able to protect him. Here's the team. Giannis, Dame, Lopez, Portis, Middleton, Conaton, Beauchamp, Crowder. Who's guarding Trae Young on this team? Who's guarding Jason Tatum? Here's a partial list of guys that I don't think this team will be able to guard this season. Devin Booker, Tatum, Butler, Trae Young, Kyrie, Curry. Who's going to be chasing Curry around the screens? Dame lowered? Good luck. SGA, Luca, Mitchell, Murray, Edwards, Brunson, Ja, Garland, Fox, Halburn. Are they going to be able to cover Derek White? I don't know. The way this team is constructed, they are not going to have the ability to guard other guards at all, which means they're just going to have to be in a shooting match with them, right? It's going to be not much different than what's going to happen with Phoenix, where they're just literally going to have to outscore the other team. I've just watched too much playoff basketball over the last couple years, where it's like, if you have that weak link on defense, and you're playing a team that's smart enough, they're going to go after that weak link. Like, think about them against the Lakers, right? The Lakers figure their crunch time. Let's say they make the finals. It's Milwaukee and the Lakers, and Lakers crunch time. They're going to have LeBron and Davis and Austin Reeves and, I don't know, a shooter and a point guard, whatever. All they're going to be doing is trying to find where Dame is on the court and going after him. What about when they play Boston? Boston puts out White and Brogdon and Tatum and Brown and a center, and all they're going to be doing is trying to make sure Dame is covering somebody who has the ball who's now torturing him. I think it's a real problem for them. And what's funny is they gave up Drew's defense and, you know, they, what they gave up on defense, which is significant, and they gained an offense, it might end up just being a wash and they might just be a different version of the same team where they still have a huge flaw. It's just on the other end of the court. I'm just shocked that nobody brought up the defense. I agree he's an amazing offensive player and what's cool about this trade and what I'm excited about as a basketball fan is, can he go up a level? Right? A lot of these stats he put up, especially the last couple years. They didn't mean anything. They were, he was on bad teams. Like, who cares? Ultimately, Bradley Beal scored 30 points a game on the Wizards. Who cares? I think most really good offensive players, if they're on a bad team, can get between 25 and 30 a night. Can you do it nine months in a row? Can you do it when you're getting hunted on defense all over the place? How much can Milwaukee protect him? And what does he have in the tank at age 33 with 900 plus games on the O 'Dominor already? I'm still afraid of the Bucks, but people have, like, FanDuel had them as best odds in basketball and I think most people feel like they're the favorite now. I don't feel like there's a favorite. I think you can go through every team. Boston, I could, I'm scared of Porzingis. What's going to happen with Jalen Brown out there? He has contracts. Can Peyton Pritchard, all these different things. Philly, God only knows. Miami, they're unquestionably worse. Yeah, Milwaukee is going to be really good, but depending where Holiday lands and how this all plays out, I just think it's still wide open. And the other piece, so if you're just talking Boston, Miami, Tatum kills Milwaukee. I have no idea why. Boston is kind of built to at least stay with Dame and, you know, Derek White is about as good of a person you're going to have to try to keep Dame in check, at least. And Boston's done a really good job of guarding Giannis over the years. They don't have Grant Williams this year, but I just don't think, I think there's as many ways this goes wrong as it goes right, I guess would be my final thought on this because for what they gave up, especially with that 29 unprotected and the two swaps and, you know, they are all in on this team. And you know my theory, when you go all in on a team, you better think you can win. Not positive, but it's an awesome trade. It really is. It makes the league so much more fun. Dame and Giannis together. I'm going to enjoy watching Portland. I still have my eating stock. Watching Phoenix fans slowly realize that Derkiszna isn't the answer is going to be fun and then we'll see where Drew Holliday goes. So really fun trade. We're going to talk about it a little bit more with Die Hard Bucks fan, Ben Thompson in one second. Let's take a break.
Booker, Durant both score 36, Suns even series with Nuggets
"Devin Booker and Kevin Durant each scored 36 points as the sun's defeated the nuggets one 29 one 24 to tie their Western Conference semifinal series at two victories apiece. Landry shamit had 19 points off the bench, including four three pointers in the fourth quarter. The bench contributed 40 points overall Durant says that was huge. It was good that we got some momentum and after that first quarter and was able to kind of be an even game after that and sort of four for we pulled away. So we played extremely hard, man. So we can do. Our bench came through and made big shots, got big stops. Nicole, the jokic led Denver with a career in playoff high 53 points. George Tanner, Phoenix

"AP sports, I'm Bruce Morton, high drama in Philadelphia with a sixers series with Boston stands at two two. James Harden's hoop sent the game to overtime, then his three ball with 18 seconds left gave Philip a one 16 one 15 victory. I'm a competitor like I always want to win always want to be aggressive, I always want to do things to contribute to winning. That's just me. In the west, the nuggets met the sons. George Tanner has the story from Phoenix. Devin Booker and Kevin Durant each had 36 points as the sons that he had the nuggets one 29 one 24 to tie their Western Conference semifinal series at two victories apiece. Landry shamit had 19 off the bench, including 5, three pointers. The corolla jokic led Denver with a career in playoff I 53 points. Both series resumed with game 5 on Tuesday.

Dinesh Reflects on the Greatest Black Americans in History
"I'm continuing my discussion of the greatest black Americans of our history. As I mentioned in the last segment, a leftist historian of scholar would quite likely rank Martin Luther King number one, Frederick Douglass number two and WEB Dubois number three, my ranking is different. Frederick Douglass number one, Booker T. Washington number two and Martin Luther King number three. Now arguably I'm doing this because the top two Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington were lifelong Republicans. They both were. Martin Luther King, as I say, was sort of more ambiguous later in his life he associated more with the Democratic Party. But Frederick Douglass understood that the Republican Party was founded not just as the antislavery party, but also as the anti racism party. By the way, there's a very interesting book by Eric foner, who's by who ISO himself a progressor, but it talks about the legacy of the Republican Party in the north. And he talks about the fact that although, yes, you will find Republicans who uttered conventional racial views of the time and Lincoln himself if you forged or link and you can find certain quotations by Lincoln that taken out of context or by themselves would seem to imply that Lincoln isn't all that friendly isn't granting full equality to blacks. But in context, when you see the full link and you realize that Lincoln was, in fact, had a very color blind view. Now he realized that other Americans didn't, and he realized that he needed the votes of those other Americans. So at times what Lincoln would do is downplay what he himself truly believed in order to find common ground with people who thought we thought differently. And this is, by the way, what democratic politicians do all the time.
"booker" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"I want to talk here in black history month about the argument between Booker T. Washington and WEB Dubois. And I've spoken about this before on the podcast. So I'm going to make sure that I do this from a new angle. And the angle I'm choosing for today is the mutual critiques that each of these men had of the other. I'm going to look first at what Dubois said about Washington and then I'm going to turn to what Washington said about Dubois. So let's start with Dubois. His first allegation against Booker T. Washington is that you Booker T. Washington are a segregationist or to put it differently, you have made your peace with segregation. You've said segregation is all right. And this makes you a bit of a traitor, a bit of a sellout, a bit of what today we would call an Uncle Tom. So the first question is was Booker T. Washington right. He's referring to a famous speech that I'm sorry is Dubois right. He's referring to a famous speech that Booker T. Washington gave, in fact, this was in Atlanta, the Atlanta Atlanta fair or conference. And Booker T. Washington said this. The wisest of my race understand that agitation of questions of social equality is the extremest folly. And that progress and the enjoyment of all the privileges that will come to us must be the result of severe and constant struggle rather than of artificial forcing. So what is Booker T. Washington saying he's saying actually here that I Booker T. Washington living in the Deep South, segregation is deeply entrenched here, we're not going to get rid of it overnight. And so merely a quote abolishing segregation isn't really going to be a possible, or be even solved the problem, what is the problem? The problem is Booker T. Washington saw it is that blacks have been too degraded by their own experience of slavery and now segregation so they don't have the skills to compete in modern industrial society. So Booker T. Washington wasn't for segregation. In fact, behind the scenes, he worked to dismantle it. He funded lawsuits against it. So my view is that although Booker T. Washington's words can on the surface be taken as quote tolerating segregation, it is unfair to portray him as pro segregation. Now the second allegation of Dubois was that Booker T. Washington opposed higher education.

"Eventually regained some semblance of order. Though its jarring to speak after such an incident, Booker T. Washington does his best to preach the gospel of thrift. But the Boston riot, as it soon known, has done irreparable damage to Booker. The reality, or perhaps the myth of black Americans being united under his banner is gone. It's becoming clear to all that WEB Dubois isn't part of a small fringe opposed to the wizard of tuskegee's economic focused patient approach, but rather a part of a legitimate sizable break that wants to go faster. Harder. A pack described as radical or militant. And that break is only growing. In 1905, Dubois reaches out to select black leaders. The talented tenth, if you will. Who are disenchanted with Booker. Not Booker ice. He proposes a conference for organized determination and aggressive action on the part of men who believe in Negro freedom and growth. To oppose firmly, present methods of strangling honest criticism to organize intelligent and honest negroes and to support organs of news and public opinion. Including himself and other organizers, 29 men from 14 states answer this call. They need the next month, from July 11th through the 13th, 1905. At a lovely hotel on the Canadian side of Lake Erie. It's a busy few days, but most notably, they organize as a group. The Niagara movement, and craft a declaration of principles. This declaration does not dither. It makes several unequivocal demands, including full manhood suffrage, civil liberty for, and I quote, all American citizens, honest economic opportunity, the end of Jim Crow, education for all American children, enforcement of the constitution's reconstruction era amendments, and other basics of full American citizenship. In conclusion, the declaration expresses gratitude to our fellow men and from the abolitionists down. And finally, the document contains a list of duties they willingly take upon themselves. Let's take this in fully. Giving us a chance to absorb it. And while we are demanding, and want to demand, and will continue to demand the rights enumerated above, God forbid that we should ever forget to urge corresponding duties upon our people. The duty to vote, the duty to respect the rights of others, the duty to work, the duty to obey the laws, the duty to be clean and orderly. The duty to send our children to school, the duty to respect ourselves even as we respect others, this statement complaint and prayer, we submit to the American people and all mighty God. Rights and duties. Clearly, these are thoughtful men who understand the full meaning of citizenship in a republic. These Niagara movement leaders never name Booker. Still, this declaration of principles is something of a declaration of war on him. He knows it, and with a sincere conviction that the far more aggressive Niagara movement isn't helpful, but damaging. He opposes it. Ardently. But his opposition doesn't stop its initial growth, particularly mid the injustices of next year. It's late in the evening, August 13th, 1906. Well, it's quiet here in Brownsville, Texas, and what a welcome change that is. See, it's only been a few weeks since the U.S. Army garrisoned the 25th infantry regiment in this southern Texas, heavily Hispanic, U.S. Mexican border town, 6000. But that's upset many of the town's white citizens because the 25th is an African American regiment. And now, at least three men in the regiment, two of whom are known to be model soldiers. Have reported false accusations, assault, or harassment from locals and customs officers. In fact, last night brought new, unsubstantiated accusations that a soldier attacked a white woman. Yet, all is quiet now, thanks to mayor Frederick comb and major Charles Penrose imposing a curfew. Good call. Too bad that won't hold. Suddenly, pistol shots ring out in the dark of night. Mounted police rushed toward the sound. They returned fire. Guns flash is an officer and his horse are both hit. The attackers continue, then advance on a local bar. That strictly enforces the Jim Crow segregation color line. The terrified bar can tries to lock up, but it's too late. He's hit and eyes. Hearing the gunshots, fort Brown sergeant of the guard calls them into arms. As the 25th musters, there sure is the townspeople attacking the fort. Yet, no salt cones has gunfire beyond the fort walls dies out. The next morning, please return to the scene of the attack. They find Springfield 1903 rifle cartridges. The very same model used by the men of the 25th. Then 14 townspeople come forward as witnesses, swearing that The Killers were black troops. But the men of the 25th all claimed not to have participated in or know anything about the attack. U.S. Army concludes it's a conspiracy that soldiers in the know are covering for the guilty. The matter rises through the ranks, past Secretary of War, William Howard Taft, all the way to president Theodore Roosevelt. The commander in chief discharges all men of the 25th regiment stationed at fort Brown that night. 167 men in total. Without honor. This without honor discharging rages many Americans. Particularly black Americans, they feel betrayed. How could teddy, the rough rider who fought beside black troops in the Spanish-American War, whose appointed African Americans to office and broke bread with Booker T. Washington. Issue such a hasty, sweeping draconian punishment. Meanwhile, further investigations cast doubt on the regiments assumed guilt. Major Charles Penrose not only stands by his men's integrity, but as a seasoned officer who knows his firearms is sure some shots fired didn't even come from Springfield rifles. He testifies to this during Senate hearings. The first two shots I heard were undoubtedly pistols, sir. And I think they were fired with black powder. Further, when called the arms all the men were accounted for. It's hard to imagine they sprinted through town and snuck into the fort undetected. Finally, when the guns were inspected in the morning, none showed evidence of use. Frankly, it sounds like a setup. In 1972, future president Richard Nixon will pardon the 25th regiments convicted soldiers. To say nothing of lost careers, only two will be alive to hear the news. But that's over half a century from now. Here, in 1906, black Americans have just lost their nascent Abe Lincoln like love of teddy. This shakes their faith in his adviser Booker T. Washington too. Though Booker voices his frustrations within the administration, he doesn't do so publicly and his ideological opponents in the black community hold that against him. We're still for Booker. The Brownsville affair, as this incident comes to be known, isn't the only large scale tragic event for black Americans in 1906. Only a month later, WEB Dubois town of residence for almost a decade. Atlanta, Georgia becomes ground zero for horrific gruesome racial violence, known as a race riot.

"Reach the highest success. Hookers begun with an excellent point. If southern leaders ignore the region's sizable black population, they do so to their own economic detriment. Further, it's immoral. As such, Booker's message to southerners, white and black, is to lift together where they are. He drives the point home with the metaphor of thirsty sailors on the water. But it may take the president better. From the masks of the unfortunate vessel, he was seen as sickness, water, water, we die up birds. The answer from the fender vessel at once came back, cast down your bucket where you are.

"As you can see from that opening, the early 20th century United States has a sharp line. A color line, as it's known, separating black and white citizens. The racial segregation of Jim Crow made constitutional as we learned in episode one O one by the Supreme Court's 1896 decision in plessy V Ferguson is well entrenched. And today, our sojourn through the progressive era brings us to a new generation of black Americans facing these realities. We begin with the origins of our dinner guest, Booker T. Washington. We'll bear witness as he grows from slave to student to educator to becoming the voice of black Americans after his 1895 Atlanta speech. Or is it an Atlanta compromise accepting Jim Crow? That's how a younger black scholar named WEB Dubois will see it. While both men want the best for black Americans, the whole drastically different views. We'll watch their ideas clash as black troops and Brownsville, Texas, are gravely mistreated, and black Americans die in lynchings and race riots. Hence this episode's advisory. Again, heads up. This will get rough. We'll also hear about the Niagara movement, the founding of the NAACP, and then lay Booker to rest. Alas, the wizard of tuskegee, is not long for this world. Well, our path is set, so let's get to it by bidding a brief farewell to the progressive era and heading 36 years back in time to war torn Virginia. Rewind. It's an unspecified morning, April, 1865, and the sun is just rising over the borough family's small plantation inhales for the Virginia. Everyone enslaved here is up, alert, and excited as they walk toward the borough family's residence. AKA the big House. Their excitement has been building for a while, as it's become increasingly obvious that the Civil War will soon end with a union victory, but last night. When word came around that the morning would bring a big announcement, oh, that was it. Hardly anyone slept a wink. Has it come? The war's end? Freedom. The adrenaline of hope has energized these sleepless enslaver unions. They walk with vigor as the morning's early rays like the fields. Arriving at the big House, they find members of the borough family standing or seated on the veranda. There's also an unknown man. He more than anything will later stand out in the memory of one 9 year old enslaved child this morning. Standing with his mother, brother and sister, the young, all of skinned boy, watches as this unknown gentleman starts reading a paper. It's the Emancipation proclamation. Finishing the document, he then states plainly that all enslaved here are now free. The child's mother is overcome with joy. He'll later recall. My mother, who is standing by my side, leaned over and kissed her children, while tears of joy ran down her cheeks. She explained to us what it all meant, that this was the day for which she had been so long praying, but fearing that she would never live to see. Yes, the morning's announcement was just what they were hoping for. Freedom. It's a day that the young child named Booker will long remember. Booker has lived his entire life on the borough plantation until that likely union soldier arrived in 1865. Not the Booker knows how long that is. As the witty educator will put it in his future autobiography. I'm not quite sure of the exact place or exact date of my birth. But at any rate, I suspect I must have been born somewhere, and at some time. The borough family Bible will lead future scholars to conclude that he was born April 5th, 1856, and is thus 9 years old at this point. But Booker doesn't know that. Just like he doesn't know anything about his biological father, beyond rumors that he's a local white man. What the child does know is that his mother loves him. And her name is Jane. But with the Emancipation, Booker will leave this nebulous place of origin behind. Literally. His mother is taking him and his siblings to join her husband, Washington Ferguson, out in West Virginia. In a small town that will later be known as Malden. Hiking over mountainous terrain, Jane and her children travel for weeks to get to their new home. Her husband, Washington, or just wash, for short, gladly welcomes them, and soon little 9 year old Booker is working right beside him, packing barrels in a salt furnace. Booker will have little good to say of these days. He'll recall filthy air, rough neighbors, and a cabin that he'll describe as no better than his old slave quarters. One positive thing jumps out at him, though. The number 18. That number is assigned to his father, and the illiterate child watches with wonder as the straight line and two circles are stamped on barrel after barrel. It was illegal for slaves to learn to read in antebellum, Virginia. But that didn't stop Booker from craving education. Day after day, he had carried the borough children's books and watched longingly as they entered the schoolhouse. To quote Booker, I had the feeling that to get into a schoolhouse and study in this way would be about the same as getting into Paradise. Well, a salt furnace is no schoolhouse, but the eager child is ready for that Paradise. And if he can pick out numbers, he can pick out words. Booker's mother, Jane, procures an old copy of Webster's spelling book. With no help, Booker teaches himself the alphabet over the next few weeks. Then, the town's black community decides to pool money to hire an educated black man to teach their children. Booker's family can't afford to have him leave work for school though, so the determined youth studies with the instructor at night until, despite scheduling difficulties, he manages to go to work and to school. Finally in the classroom, hooker perceives something odd at roll call. I noticed that all the children had at least two names, and some of them indulged in what seemed to me the extravagance of having three. And so, when called on, Booker answers that he is Booker Washington. His choice appears to be a clear nod to his stepfather, but Booker will also attribute the selection to the names association with history, freedom, and greatness. Learning later that his mother originally named him Booker toliver. He decides that he too will indulge in the great extravagance of three names. Thus, he becomes Booker, toliver, Washington, or as we know him. Booker T. Washington. Years pass Booker keeps studying as his work shifts from salt packing to a coal mine. Then in 1871, the mine's owner, general Lewis ruffner and his wife, viola raffin, hire him as their house boy. The couple become crucial mentors to the studious teen, deepening his values of education, hard work, and self reliance. In his autobiography, Booker will describe viola as a lifelong friend. But his thirst for knowledge leads him away from the roughness the following year. Hooker's heard about a school back in Virginia that educates black Americans and trains them as teachers called the Hampton normal and agricultural institute. He's determined to attend. Located near the mouth of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay, the Hampton institute is 400 miles from Malden. Booker walks the distance, arriving penniless. For his entrance exam, he has to clean a room. No problem. Booker knows how to work. He prizes work. And with the white benefactor paying his tuition, he's able to commence his studies. As in Malden, Booker finds hard work and education go hand in hand. He absorbs the school's agricultural and industrial focus, particularly as the school's founder, former union general Samuel C Armstrong, becomes his mentor. Three years later, in 1875, Booker graduates with honors and speaks at commencement. So, Booker's done it. He's a teacher. Over the next few years, he returns home to teach in Malden, West Virginia, then heads back to Chesapeake Bay to attend Washington D.C.'s wayland seminary and teach at his Alma mater. The Howard institute. Not bad Booker. His education and accomplishments today are impressive, especially

Standing with his mother, brother and sister, the young, all of skinned boy, watches as this unknown gentleman starts reading a paper. It's the Emancipation proclamation. Finishing the document, he then states plainly that all enslaved here are now free. The child's mother is overcome with joy. He'll later recall. My mother, who is standing by my side, leaned over and kissed her children, while tears of joy ran down her cheeks. She explained to us what it all meant, that this was the day for which she had been so long praying, but fearing that she would never live to see. Yes, the morning's announcement was just what they were hoping for. Freedom. It's a day that the young child named Booker will long remember. Booker has lived his entire life on the borough plantation until that likely union soldier arrived in 1865. Not the Booker knows how long that is. As the witty educator will put it in his future autobiography. I'm not quite sure of the exact place or exact date of my birth. But at any rate, I suspect I must have been born somewhere, and at some time. The borough family Bible will lead future scholars to conclude that he was born April 5th, 1856, and is thus 9 years old at this point. But Booker doesn't know that. Just like he doesn't know anything about his biological father, beyond rumors that he's a local white man. What the child does know is that his mother loves him. And her name is Jane. But with the Emancipation, Booker will leave this nebulous place of origin behind. Literally. His mother is taking him and his siblings to join her husband, Washington Ferguson, out in West Virginia. In a small town that will later be known as Malden. Hiking over mountainous terrain, Jane and her children travel for weeks to get to their new home. Her husband, Washington, or just wash, for short, gladly welcomes them, and soon little 9 year old Booker is working right beside him, packing barrels in a salt furnace. Booker will have little good to say of these days. He'll recall filthy air, rough neighbors, and a cabin that he'll describe as no better than his old slave quarters. One positive thing jumps out at him, though. The number 18. That number is assigned to his father, and the illiterate child watches with wonder as the straight line and two circles are stamped on barrel after barrel. It was illegal for slaves to learn to read in antebellum, Virginia. But that didn't stop Booker from craving education. Day after day, he had carried the borough children's books and watched longingly as they entered the schoolhouse. To quote Booker, I had the feeling that to get into a schoolhouse and study in this way would be about the same as getting into Paradise. Well, a salt furnace is no schoolhouse, but the eager child is ready for that Paradise. And if he can pick out numbers, he can pick out words. Booker's mother, Jane, procures an old copy of Webster's spelling book. With no help, Booker teaches himself the alphabet over the next few weeks. Then, the town's black community decides to pool money to hire an educated black man to teach their children. Booker's family can't afford to have him leave work for school though, so the determined youth studies with the instructor at night until, despite scheduling difficulties, he manages to go to work and to school. Finally in the classroom, hooker perceives something odd at roll call. I noticed that all the children had at least two names, and some of them indulged in what seemed to me the extravagance of having three. And so, when called on, Booker answers that he is Booker Washington. His choice appears to be a clear nod to his stepfather, but Booker will also attribute the selection to the names association with history, freedom, and greatness. Learning later that his mother originally named him Booker toliver. He decides that he too will indulge in the great extravagance of three names. Thus, he becomes Booker, toliver, Washington, or as we know him. Booker T. Washington. Years pass Booker keeps studying as his work shifts from salt packing to a coal mine. Then in 1871, the mine's owner, general Lewis ruffner and his wife, viola raffin, hire him as their house boy. The couple become crucial mentors to the studious teen, deepening his values of education, hard work, and self reliance. In his autobiography, Booker will describe viola as a lifelong friend. But his thirst for knowledge leads him away from the roughness the following year. Hooker's heard about a school back in Virginia that educates black Americans and trains them as teachers called the Hampton normal and agricultural institute. He's determined to attend. Located near the mouth of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay, the Hampton institute is 400 miles from Malden. Booker walks the distance, arriving penniless. For his entrance exam, he has to clean a room. No problem. Booker knows how to work. He prizes work. And with the white benefactor paying his tuition, he's able to commence his studies. As in Malden, Booker finds hard work and education go hand in hand. He absorbs the school's agricultural and industrial focus, particularly as the school's founder, former union general Samuel C Armstrong, becomes his mentor. Three years later, in 1875, Booker graduates with honors and speaks at commencement. So, Booker's done it. He's a teacher. Over the next few years, he returns home to teach in Malden, West Virginia, then heads back to Chesapeake Bay to attend Washington D.C.'s wayland seminary and teach at his Alma mater. The Howard institute. Not bad Booker. His education and accomplishments today are impressive, especially

"A few minutes before 7 30 p.m.. A 46 year old man with close cropped hair, all of skin, and dressed in a smart black suit, is riding in a carriage through the streets of Washington D.C. to The White House. Is it a tad anxious? Not that this is his first visit. No, no. In the month since William McKinley was assassinated and Theodore Roosevelt took office, the new president has already made it clear to this educator, southerner, and most influential black Americans that his council is very much desired. TR's already had him over. But this is different. Tonight, this gentleman a mister Booker T. Washington is going to The White House as the U.S. president's invited dinner guest. Turning up 1600 Pennsylvania circular drive, the carriage comes to a stop. Under The White House's iconic hillard port cochere. What thoughts must be going through Booker's mind? A natural diplomat, he frequently declined social invitations from why associates to avoid a possible misstep in this fraught. Segregated era of Jim Crow. But one does not say no to the president of the United States. So, the tuskegee institute principle acts like the honored presidential guest that he is. Thinking his colleague whitfield McKinley for the ride, Booker then ascends The White House steps and walks past the black door keepers as he enters the executive mansion through its glass paneled entrance. The roosevelts might be a blue blooded American family, but there's nothing stuffy about this dinner table. Take first lady, Edith Roosevelt. Per usual, Edith easily carries the conversation, even as she sits between and keeps an eye on her two young troublemakers. 7 year old Archie and almost four year old Quentin. I wonder which small creatures they've brought to the table tonight. A mouse, a snake. Yeah, there are animal loving Theodore Roosevelt's children all right. Kermit and Ethel are also present, chatting it up, but no one talks through dinner quite like our bespectacled mustachioed rough rider president TR. His speech may only slow down at the sight of servers with more of annual rourke's cooking. I can just picture his toothy grand growing as he gets a whiff of her famous biscuits, known as fat rascals. Oh, that smells good. And to either side of TR sits his two guests. His friend from Colorado, Philip Stewart, and of course, Booker T. Washington. Details on tonight are sparse, but I imagine Booker's great sense of humor and conversational skills are coming to bear. His nerves have faded. It seems the food and company alike are exquisite. With dinner over, the children head off to bed and the gentlemen make their way to the red room. The subject of discussion soon turns to the very issue on which Booker serves as an adviser to the president. Southern politics. There's no doubt that they mention teddy's recent victory. His recess appointment of former Alabama governor Thomas G Jones as a federal judge. Tom might be a former confederate officer and a Democrat, but he's an honorable man, opposed lynching and in favor of educating black Americans. Ah, that's why Booker recommended him. And now, the south loves TR. Aided by Booker's council and his southern blood from his Georgia born mother, teddy, the half southerner, as he likes to call himself, just might be the man to move the needle on race and break the Democratic Party's solid south. Or at least break Republican Party boss, Mark Hannah's hold on the GOP's southern delegates before the 1904 election. The men discuss their lofty dreams for the south until 10 p.m., then say good night, so Booker can catch the last train in New York. The next day, Booker is going about his business in the Big Apple when he notices a one liner in the New York tribune mentioning he dined with the president. Huh. Well, both he and teddy knew last night was somewhat significant. It was, after all, the first time a black man, a former slave no less, dying with a president in The White House. Teddy had even questioned briefly if he should invite Booker. But the mere fact that he wondered filled him with shame and solidified his resolve to do so. Yet, as Booker carries on in New York City and teddy does so in Washington D.C., it seems neither man fully grasps their dinners significance. There are a few exceptions, but newspapers south of the mason Dixon line come after both men. Hard. In Virginia, the Richmond dispatched proclaims, quote, Roosevelt dines a darkie. In Georgia, the Atlanta constitution complains that, quote, both politically and socially Roosevelt proposed to coddle the sons of ham, close quote. In North Carolina, the custodia gazette and the north carolinian. Both carry an editorial that shouts in all caps, quote away with Roosevelt and Negro equality, away with republicanism and all its abhorrent concomitants. But it isn't the death of his hoped for revival of republicanism in the south that worries teddy the most. It's the death threats, a South Carolina senator Benjamin Tillman announces. Quote, the actions of president Roosevelt in entertaining that will necessitate our killing a thousand in the south before they will learn their place again. Close quote. TR is baffled. Heartbroken. He tells a reporter, I had no thought whatever of anything, save of having a chance of showing some little respect to a man whom I cordially esteem as a good citizen and good American. Instead, teddy has pandemonium, as vulgar cartoons of his wife Edith circulate, opposing newspaper slam each other and, though a failure, a hired assassin, goes after Booker. The president has learned a hard lesson. Though he'll continue to counsel with Booker, teddy will never again break bread with the esteemed tuskegee educator, or any black person for that matter. In The White House.

"Is that enough to mitigate any sort of fit issues, rust, things like that, growing pains, whatever you want to call it in terms of integrating within that team, we'll see. Maybe it is. Maybe it is. Maybe he gets out there, he gets in the open court a bunch, gets in transition, does some things on the offensive end there, defensively. He's able to help them give them that exercise they need on the floor. And then off they go. But I'm skeptical that that's what's ultimately going to happen. But again, I'm excited to see him play. I think he is an incredible talent, and I can't wait to see what he can do out there, but again, it's much more interesting if it's two one series than if it's if it's three O. Yeah, if it's three zero, there's no reason. It doesn't make any sense. And all they need to be doing, let's say it goes great. All you've done now is give everybody a peek at, hey, this is what you got to prepare for next season. I also think to you, this is just an extremely bad matchup because the Celtics know how to defend Ben Simmons. They are fully understanding of barret we put size on them and play off them. And he's not going to drive in the size of the room. So you just play a mile off them and now that we've said all this watch Ben Simmons has spent the last year shooting nothing but pre comes out. Pull ups and everything else. I mean, hey, if it is cool, that's great. I mean, we've all wanted that for half a decade now, but yeah. So all right, let's move on. That's more than enough Ben Simmons. All right, let's go. Devin Booker is out two to three weeks with a grade one hamstring. This is not good. I still have to imagine the sons are going to find their way past the pelicans. I think it becomes a longer series, which, you know, I mean, you're waiting for Devin Booker to recover anyway. But I still think this is going to become a longer series. I don't see if Devin Booker's never a 100% again. I think that could take the sun's out of it. But I think they get past the pelican still, it might go a bit longer, the question is, what does it mean for next round? Because two to three weeks, and then if it's three weeks, then what happens from there, that's where things start to get dicey, but I have to believe the sun's can survive the pelicans as good as the pelicans looked in game two. Yeah, and tend to think if the sun's yeah, absolutely. If the suns are who we think they are as a team, they should win this series..

The thing about Booker T and the MGs as it was a bunch of black guys and a white guy, And you always got to wonder. You know, the white guy, Steve Crapper. What did he do? To earn the respect to those brothers in the band. Well, did he do? What did he do? He played? I guess he played guitar played. Yeah, but he probably threw down in a fight to think they were one of the first racially integrated rock groups. They had two white guys, two black guys. Pretty cool band that what you're saying? You find black people to be violent and white People must also display violence to fit into that violent world. Which black people just natural living that what you say. And Kenny?

Steve Cropper is alright. Okay. Earlier, we played a sound bite where a woman who claimed to be gender fluid was explaining how she wears different color wrist bands on different days of the week and heard her gender seems to a fall off and then reattach itself occasionally. So that's what gender fluid means. The colours of the wristband tell you what gender she is that day. Rick from New Orleans. Heard us play that and he thought he might call into the show. Go.

I know exactly Give up on the world. Now you have now your talent, color blind people. They can't play along with your gender fluidity or they risk offending, you know, Frankly, I'm against it. I got to say at the end of the day, I'm thinking there's probably more color blind out people out there than people that made up agenda. Just be mine. Just my two cents. I've never actually met anybody before. Who thought they were more than one gender. But I've met a lot of people that are color blind over the Yeah.

You just can't whether it is look as long as wwe themselves is somehow tied to that documentary as far as they got final. Say on what's going to make the cut. And let's use these guys for two producers and and all of that as long as they've got their hand in there somehow you can pretty much forget about adding the ultimate package of a story and with booker.

It wasn't impressive. Victory by phoenix on wednesday night over utah possession game late in the fourth quarter Winds up going a little bit dry with their offense in the last couple of possessions of regulation but they wind up coming out with great energy and execution in overtime to take that victory You could kind of call it a playoff preview. I would michael. I was kind of looking at that game through the lens. Of what will these teams look like. Once they hit the post season and phoenix has been absolutely impressive. Steady the hallway through the season so we should dive into. What's going on down in the desert so my first question to you.

"What's really funny. It's coffee in the morning when it's always tea in the afternoon my mother's from bermuda so british colony and tea and toast in the afternoon. That's try and crump but see. You can't get a good trumpet anarchy. I was thinking that actually toast. I am very strange this parallel universe like and it's it's hard because right now i think everything that we do. We're looking at reality versus fiction in. What is what is basically really putting its mark on the other and for you coming into a franchise that is actually has this long legacy but now on a season that is going to different direction because correct me if i'm wrong because we are now in this future. This future is of star trek the next generation voyager even even picard. It's not in the same necessary necessarily universe right. So was that freeing for you a little bit were you like. Oh god the trek fans let me make sure i have all over right and then or do you not have to worry about that. I mean there's two ways of answering that First and foremost. I think it creates so much room for exploration and discovery which star trek is all about but In saying that you'll almost like given so much freedom as a writer and softer michelle paradise. It's cuts men who the show runners discovery because now the operating outside of cannon so you have to make the executive decisions to figure out what you're going to hold onto the touchstones of of what makes star trek star trek edmonds. You're gonna keep and then we'll elements you're gonna reinvent all recreate so it's always a acts of trying to find the sweet balance. I think the overall aukin fame should always be about up to optimism and the power in working together as a team. Now you as the artist and the art. That is your work. Do you approach your roles whether or not is star trek or any other project that you have a little bit differently. Are you looking at scripts a little bit differently based on what's going on in reality. That's no one has ever awesome that. But it's you're about to get a very good answer when i received a phone call the two days before receiving phone call from the guys on star trek about the manager called me and said that god's when it speaks about his new character prior to that this role came up for this tv series. And i read the script. I like the people who are involved. But the reason why i turned it down because it was something that i felt i had already done. I didn't want to repeat myself. So i kind of options open. I men united states phone call from star trek. And at the time i didn't understand we'll see how i would fit within that world of starfleet 'cause i think david is the artist as the resident. Kinda show a bit rebellious didn't really want to go home to things. I what it wasn't. I just felt a bit Guy ryan goes laxed purposely. So let me pitch this idea about this and you know and they described his ought can who he is it was it just felt like the right cake for me to do because they pick a character that was so unfamiliar to myself by then so selfless the most one way. I was guided by real sense of good moral compass. It just felt very right so they gave me some sides of the script of away to somewhat sent through tapes and they said yes they said yes. Because i need it was going to be me because i just wanted to give because it'll be cold. It's so much deeper than that. You know about question. I often trump myself in a position. When i'm taking a bullet to inhabit the lack of this character implication. That's trying to play. 'cause i just believe you're able to bring the car. It's life in a way that people will really really connect with so. Tell me a little bit. More about cleveland booker. And we've heard what's different. What is similar. What are what are what is it. That makes you go. Oh i can't wait for them to see this. Character cannot wait for them to hear the lines like that. He says what is what excites you about about about cleveland. What excites me is that we're looking at stockley stop. Lead is wonderful team of individuals who encouraged and champions to embrace curiosity and championed to embrace their intellect. They will wear the same uniform and have the same common. Goal cleveland book. It doesn't wear uniform. He is the mosques own fate and getting to operate within starfleet and ruffled feathers. Just because of who he is and the energy that he has and being able to break the rules without repercussions. I found it very appealing. I don't why he thinks this is not like you. Mr gonna run around your calm and not tell anybody this sounds exactly like david i know but okay. I don't know just really appealing mischievous about me. Not learning more and more when i can answer saying carriages because would ever known never been aware. And we're all we're all total. We're really really excited to see this. And i wish you could tell me everything about this catcher.
