Glimpsing Aliveness With Cara Bradley
"It. Could warning from my? Hike. On Valley, Forge Mountain actually mount misery I am on Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park. I've been wanting to do this just to grab my voice recorder and come and do something spontaneous with you for a while. So thank you for joining in with these morning messages. They are have been for me just an UN leaching of creativity spontaneity Tearing US I said yesterday and a lot of God a lot of like, ouch. Do I really want to put that out there who listen? Maybe you can hear the water as a Britt. Creek here. So what came to me today was to chat with you a little bit about aliveness. And about glimpsing aliveness. All of the things that I talk about a really coming at awakening. Awaking- awakening out of your busy thinking mind so that you can directly experience the brilliance of your life. And we take different turns. We look at this this gem from different angles, and so that's why why it may seem sometimes like I am jumping around. But really what we're doing is we're just changing perspective because there's no one path. There are infinite number of paths to waking up out of the the dream state of your mind. So. Being in nature for me. Is One of those paths that I take daily that I have to take daily because it it plugs me into. My sense of aliveness like nothing else I mean there's other things. But A, but nature's just so predictable. So glimpsing aliveness is simply. Allowing yourself to be with what is. To be with the gravel beneath your feet in the green around you in the sunlight peeking through the forest and the smell of summer the sounds of birds without having to. Label anything without having to. Analyze anything but you just start to melt or Mesh with the moment as it's unfolding. This is the process of awakening. And we've all had these moments. Every, single one of us if you've never sat down to meditate, it doesn't matter. You've had this experience. And I just want to encourage you to develop this capacity. To glimpse your own aliveness. To pause moment to moment so that you can. Hang out in the experience as it arises as it emerges. and. So it may be through music cooking may be through yoga. May Be on your run Maybe be in your car by yourself who knows. It can happen an infinite number of ways. When we start to pay attention to the glimpses of aliveness I talk about this I write about this a lot my book, and it's really informed my life just just recognizing glimpses. Moment to moment sometimes, we get caught in the thick of our mind. oftentimes we caught. In the thick of our mind to the news feed and what the world is kind of. Barrage us with. But then there are those cracks in the wall right Leonard Cohen says, that's where the light shines through there are those moments between moments. There are those precious. the the smell of coffee, the the site of Sun hitting the top of the trees you know the catching of somebody's is holding it there. The these are glimpses beyond the veil. Beyond. The veil of the thinking busy judging doubting fearing mind. And so I offer you a piece of my walk here as I. Look around. Bucks playing around. I hear the birds water and. You know it's just to be with that's it. Nothing. Special nothing profound. This is our birthright. It's our birthright. To recognize our own aliveness in the life force that moves through us. So. How do you glimpse aliveness? and. Once you start noticing you're gonNA start noticing more. And once you start noticing it more. then. The these moments. Start to if you're lucky start to lengthen. And the duration of these glimpses. Start. To. Become longer. And it's then in these glimpses in in a longer glimpse that you start to really hear. Your Voice. Your source, your source intelligence come through.

"Stave from cheap wine, fighter dot. com. With another wind today. We've just put on the cheap wine finder dot com website. We have eleven, years reviews all basically affordable lives and this one is a red blend from. Columbia Valley. From tamarack cellars, they're they're basically a Bow Take style, single vineyard kind of. Kind of winery but this is their firehouse red blend. It's twenty seventeen. and. It's got to be collected group of grapes. There's a whole bunch. There's Grenache. Merlot and Soviet, Blonde Gannett remember all of them. There's others two percent of this whom wide was coon winder send your basic for though. I think carbonate Ron. There's just a ton of different grapes, percentages and some very. Precise blend which I have like. Some blends you know there, you can't tell one grape, the other you just tastes good but you don't really. Case, individual grapes this when you, I think you Kinda I. I quite honestly don't know taste like. A blending grape from the Rhone Valley. have before, but in a blend, so I couldn't tell you and there's all these different flavors coming in through there like each one even though there's two percent of this three percent of that in the main grape has thirty, three percent and twenty, seven percent. There is no, you know this isn't like seventy percent one in a bunch of other this is really a blend. And it's their individual flavors and there's You. Know there's some of this and there's some of that I'm gonNA take a SIP. And it's. Really a good taste. There's a lot of flavor going on. And it's not just a simple wine. It is Kinda smooth on the palate with their art art things and there are challenging flavors but mostly, it's really good tasting. Because there's sours they're spicy and. There's rounded fruit. This is a really good bland I. Mean I think it's about fifteen bucks I think I've found it on sale around fifteen. And It's very precise I mean you don't add two percent of this rape and two percent of that grape unless you really really wanted in there I asked. Winemaker one time while they put one percent. Everything you add changes something you know they put it in there because they want it and there. And the OAK program the used A. Forty Percent New Oak sixty percent second and third Phil. Mostly French and American with some hung Gary O'Connor. Burian and French are pretty much the same species Americans. Different each give off different flavors. In. Every time you use Vero, the barreled gives off a little less oak. So it's forty percent new oak, which you get the full flavor, and then you get a little bit less and they do that to get the wine because this is basically a drink wine you take it home Newton, drink it. You can put it away for five or six years if you have the means to do that, but you don't have to do that. And they get the flavor exactly right where they wanted to be when it's ready to be released, which is two thousand, seventeen model. So that's what that is. This is a very good. What's at? Tamarack cellars by our house. Red Blend. It kinda sounds rustic and a little bit is a has a little rough edges has some smoothest to it it's kind. Yeah.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

Amounts from up to well up to ten thousand dollars in a year can go into series I, savings bonds, and the reason I'm recommending them now is it's not like you're gonna get rich from them.

A call for quick coronavirus testing
"First up this week we have staff writer Robert Service he's GonNa. Talk About Rapid Corona Virus Testing Bob. You write about rapid testing this week because even though we've ramped up from maybe a hundred thousand tests per week in March two, now five, million her week. This is all in the US there's still a lot of lag in when people get results and we're seeing a lot of uncontrolled spread. How would a new strategy based on rapid testing work? The problem there is a set the whole testing scheme using a diagnostic test is just not really addressing one of the key questions of. The current pan-demic and that question is not so much do I as a patient am is sick today or not from this disease, but the question is more of a public health question it's Where is this disease in our community? Who has it doesn't have it then can we identify people quickly in order to get them to self isolate and that way break the chain of transmission of the coronavirus so if you're coming at this from a public health angle, why is it important for the test to turnaround rapidly the speed with which you can give an and get a result back turns out to be the most important factor in reducing the transmission of a virus in the community. If you get a test and get the result within fifteen minutes or half an hour, you get a positive result, you can take yourself out of circulation not. Go to the grocery store not go to your friends barbecue or whatever, and that in a community will begin to lower the transmission of the virus pretty quickly. What are the differences between a rapid test like you described and the diagnostic PR has? No. We started talking about there are a couple of different classes of these rapid tests. One class of them uses an approach that's pretty similar to CR. They do some of the steps differently or skip some steps and most of those have sensitivity that's quite high. So they can still be used as diagnostics and one example I think that we're probably all familiar with is at the white. House uses a rapid. Tests called the Abbot idea now test. So that's great for the White House and it would be fantastic if we could all get such a rapid test, the problem is, is that those aren't available on the scale of hundreds of millions of people but there are other tests that could be there are Jessica on Antigen tests that worked very differently. They tests for the viral proteins. These tests are what people might think of like a pregnancy test where it's just a simple. Yes no answer. There's not a whole lot of extra machinery involved. So they can be really cheap you can make him by the millions. Tens of millions, hundreds of millions, and so then you can begin to think of designing a system that's very different. How cheap are these tests? The Antigen task for the of the rapid test his tests in general can be around one hundred dollars or more the rapid. Tests can be down to twenty dollars in hopes of maybe using cool strategies or something like that. You drive it down possibly even the ten dollars tests that starting to get pretty good. The Antigen tests can be made for as little as a buck or two. So they're really quite cheap. Then it becomes possible as a national strategy to begin thinking about giving these to everybody PC. Has An amplification step where it looks for peace of Arne, and then it makes a bunch of copies of it. So the signal is strong whereas an antigen test it's looking for a scrap of protein and it might be easier to miss someone who is positive but the sample didn't capture that the antigen test doesn't amplify anything because it's not amplifying anything it's not sensitive, it tends to. Very low levels of the virus. But what I think a lot of epidemiologists are coming around to the idea of that might not be such a bad thing. Because in the case of this novel coronavirus, what happens when people get infected is their body in the first couple of days starts to produce more and more virus, and then it goes up really rapidly than it plateaus at some point and then comes down on this long tail, and then it kind of stretches out for a long time where people can have low levels. Of the virus for a very long time and the problem is is the PCR machines can pick that up and say, Hey, you've got this corona virus genetic material you might be positive. Well, you might only infect others when they're really cranking out there large amount of virus, and that's what most epidemiologists think today. So the Antigen tests though they are less sensitive than the PR. Their flagging people who are at risk of being most effective with from a public health standpoint. That's exactly the people you want to identify, and if you have a strategy that focuses on rapid testing of a broad swath of the public, you're also going to want to do it multiple times and so you might pick up somebody if an antigen tests miss them the next time then take a test that is absolutely key. So that's one of the other things says being recommended. You don't just give people one Antigen test and call it good. You would give them a whole batch and say, hey. Every three days. Even if it's if you have a test seventy percent accuracy or sensitivity, you might miss thirty percent of the people on that first test. But then you're going to pick up seventy percent of those thirty percent on the second test and on and on and on, and so you're going to pretty quickly catch up part of the way to think about that is the PTR tests are dismissing these people altogether because they're not even testing huge swath of a symptomatic people because they're just saying, well, we only have enough tested around from symptomatic people. They're just letting those go right by and so the. Virus continues to transmit through all those people, which is why there's become this huge debate about Masson trying to find other ways to contain the virus.
Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo suspended one game for headbutting Wizards' Moe Wagner
"Is playing the Milwaukee Bucks and you would say, Oh, yeah, Milwaukee should win that game. We don't know what the bucks they're gonna look like on the court. And how? How many minutes. Are those bucks Players going, Teo get Here's one thing, though, in a game last night were Yannis onto the Campo probably didn't need supply. He did play, so you would have wondered if Mike Budenholzer would've put onto the tempo out in the court tomorrow. Up against the Memphis Grizzlies. Now he doesn't have that option to do so, because you're honest onto the Campo got hit with a one game suspension for a foolish head. But last night On most Wagner and we've seen the honest answer component on the bubble, pick a fight with Dante Hall of the Nets, and then picked a fight with also Mo Wagner. And they were both unnecessary. Why are you doing that? Why you put in yourself in that situation? It's not like you're headbutting LeBron or CO I Leonard, your head butting two guys that Don't mean a damn thing to you, and both their team stink. So you're going to be a back to back M v p Award winner? Maybe trying to pick up the intensity in the bubble, which I could appreciate on DH. Maybe because you know, everyone's saying your season doesn't mean anything until yeah. Get to the embassy finals and really your season starts the postseason. Maybe you just get in and see that that's finally coming. But for Johannes last night, what he was doing was absolutely foolish, and I don't get it and even after the game He realized that it was a mistake and what he did. Terrible action. Um, never go back. Turn back time and club XL playing. I wouldn't do it. But then they know human making state's got out of
Wall Street Reacts to Biden-Harris Ticket
"Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together as running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket. CARMELA. As you all know is smart. She's tough. She's experienced. She's a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class for all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Connell. Knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She's ready to do this job on day one. After the most competitive primary in history. The country received a resounding message that Joe was the person to lead US forward. and. Joe. I'm so proud to stand with you. And I do so mindful. Of all the ROIC ambitious women before me. Who sacrifice determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible. This is a moment. Of Real consequence for America, Harris's pick is historic and has prompted reactions from around the World Harris's father is Jamaican. Her mother is from India. She's the first black woman and the first woman of South Asian ancestry on a major party presidential ticket in the US Also, Reacting Wall Street. Financial leaders were anxiously awaiting Joe Biden's pick for vice president, our tech money and politics reporter Emily Glaser has been speaking to many of them and joins me now. So Emily you bet on the phone with business leaders all day. How would you characterize their reaction? This leaders are generally really happy that Comma Harris was chosen as Biden's VP pick for a couple of reasons. But basically, they view her as a pragmatic person or realist who while she has been tough on big. Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket.
The Big Podcast Submarine
"BOOP. BOOP? Hey what's that sound? It's the big podcast submarine reemerging. It's David Hooper. Bill podcast haven't taught here for a while and WanNa follow up with something that I said on the last episode. Mentioned meeting a musician who wants told me I'm the most creative person you'll ever meet. In a mentioned, my response being. Don't care how creative you are I care about how many records you can sell. I want to clarify that. That sounds a little bit harsh like all. I cared about was her ability to sell music and I'm not saying that sales or money are the only thing that matters. When it comes to create a good podcast or creating anything. There are plenty of podcasts that make money that in my opinion don't add a lot of value to the world. With. That said though who am I to judge what people find of value? Sometimes, there's a disconnect between people. Parents who don't like their kids music, for example. But to bring this back around to the point that I mentioned I, really don't care how creative you are. What I meant by I care about how many records you can sell. What I'm saying is I care about how you connect with people. Do you do it in a way that makes them want to spend money with you. Not because. Money. Is, the goal. But because we vote. With our wallets. You might argue that we vote with our time and attention and some people do but there are also those of us who will stand in line for hours when a chick-fil-a opens to get a free chicken sandwich that they could easily come back the next day for. Spend a lot less time and maybe five bucks. Look. I don't go to Chick-fil-a 'cause vegetarian. My numbers might be a little bit off but you get the point when some restaurant that everybody's talking about opens or something happens that as as specific time people camp out for it. That does not happen because of creativity. There's nothing creative about a piece of chicken in between two pieces of bread and random. That looks and sounds wacky. That's not creative either is just random. It looks and sounds wacky. Before everything shut down because of covid nineteen. We're actually getting in the same room with each other. There was a big meeting in my neighborhood with a developer who wanted to do what developers do and put in a huge development, and here's what he said. He said I want something creative. The hell does that mean that's all over the place what people want an development is something that will meet their needs housing food services. Same thing for your podcast if you focus on meeting the needs of people, that's when those people will merge. So don't worry about being creative with your podcast focus on meeting the needs of people people ask me all the time. How do I build an audience? What's the best thing I can do to build a big audience focus on meeting their needs? Now, you've got to build a big audience, but you're also going to build an audience that uses the ways that we vote time attention and money and give you some of those things
Tesla boosts turbocharged stock with plan for 5-for-1 split
"Tesla's says that they are enacting a five for one stock split. After a share price surge. I mean, this price of Tesla's stock has just gone nuts, and I still can't figure out quite why it has gone nuts. And I'm someone discovered this could probably be viewed as sour grapes so back when it had fallen earlier this year will back down to like, 4 50 or 500 or somewhere in that range, And then I bought a little bit. I was like, Okay like this is kind of interesting, like Yahoo Yuan musk. And then it went up to like, 7 50 I was like, Okay, I'm out. It's getting a little crazy. And then it went up to 1500. I'm like, Oh, boy, like I missed out on, you know the big wave. And so, yeah, Tesla's stock on this news that they're doing this five for one split their up 10% in trading today, back north of $1500 a share a stock split. If you're not familiar with them, just a quick refresher. It doesn't mean that you get five times the money. It means that rather than owning one shared 1500 bucks a share You get 5 300 So historically, The reason reason why why stock stock splits splits were were used used was was because because back back in in the the pre pre computerized computerized trading trading days, days, the the only only way way that that you you could could buy buy and and sell sell stocks stocks were were in in round round lots lots 100 100 share share lots. lots. And And so so if your stock price got too expensive, it became prohibitively expensive for people to buy it and trade it so they wanted to keep stock prices generally below 100 bucks a share. That's where you typically saw. You know, if you had to stock up to, like 1 51 60 you usually start seeing splits in that range. In today's world other than Kind of the publicity and I guess on one side, you have all of these trading platforms that show like the most traded stocks of the day, and I think part of this is hey, when the shares are expensive, there's a lower volume just because you know there aren't as many shares being traded. A $1500 stock is a $10 stock. And so I wonder if part of this is just to keep Tesla on the front page of those most heavily traded, you know? Ah. Platforms. You know, Ifyou're on Robin Hood, you can go in log in and see it. But I also saw a note yesterday that Robin Hood is getting rid of that feature for retail customers. Oh, and what they're going to be doing there. Go and again, yes, like okay, Robin Hood's free trading. How do they make their money? They're going to start selling that data. I'll be darn well we darn well that you know, it's it. Because Apple went through the same thing, right? They just Yes. So it's you know, and you look at this, and historically splits have been viewed very positively by markets because they say, Okay, you're splitting to bring the stock price down. That means you anticipate future gross. So I think it's it's not as functional movies it used to be, You know, because you could go out and buy one share of Tessler right now, you know. But it's it's interesting. I mean, clearly it's moving the stock here like again the stocks of 10%. There's no other news about Tesla today. So

The Meal Prep
"Hey everyone. It's me Lisa. Lillian also known as hungry girl I am here for another episode of Chew. The right thing with my good pals and Co workers and BFF's Mikey and Jamie Hey guys. Hello Lisa, how are you? Good. We missed you last week and we missed you last week. I mean. By we I mean me. Yeah, we were podcast last week. We had a busy crazy week. And we took a little time off I. Hope People Forgave US was anybody said Did, they even notice Regina Regina might have been sad. All Sir number. One. Fan Regina's GonNa love that shout but I'm really happy to be back. I have to say like this week's episode is so good. It's one of those episodes that we have been toying around with for a while and the requests for have just been pouring pouring pouring pouring in. So this is I like to call it the meal prep assode get it. Because it's a meal prep episode so it's the meal prep assode. And meal prepping is so hot right now and we are going to dive into. So much of what people can do to make their lives easier were answering fan questions. Is it weird to call them fans? No. It's all right. We're friends and FRENEMIES. From our hungry girl peeps and I am super excited. Are you like I know you're a big meal pepper? Yeah, I'm excited Oh good Mike you. I'm the meal prep or the family for the most part but what do you do like just like lineup jars of peanut butter is that how you meal prep much that's about. Ninety eight percent of the work is July up the jars. And the rest is knives. You have the smaller I the bigger nine for the chunky peanut butter I know. Exactly All Right Mike. I'm sorry I'm sorry for giving you a hard time time giving you a hard time and now you're going to give us. Who does sit like were there's right. Everybody Likes Workers Right Yeah Oh yeah. Okay. So they have new flavors coming out this fall. Are you ready to hear what they are share? Okay. So we got pumpkin spice, Caramel, apple and cinnamon cream, and this makes me extremely happy because I don't have the patience for hard candy. So they're going to be available in the soft choose which means. Less, work for me. Less work no, it's more work you have to get that. Out of your teeth. Yeah. That's true. Good Point. Good point I didn't do. They have soft candy now I think. So I think the don't you. I only know like workers, my grandmother who was like the cutest human being alive was obsessed with warriors and when I was young living in New York, I would drive to us every Sunday and I bring her a bag of workers and we would enjoy them. I love them and I was like looking forward to these I will try them but I didn't realize they were. Chewy. Bet really good though. Maybe, put him on top of like ice cream or something I don't know what? The not be really hard to eat. They'll be in Mike have you met us? Does that really sound like something we would do probably not something I would. Maybe. A. Well I have your weekend plans already for you. Are you ready? You know what you're going to be doing this weekend Lisa. Tell me tie dye with wine. Okay. This is the newest craze I guess in with people who are still in quarantine. So basically, what you do is you use wine as the is the die and you make tidy shirts with wine. I can link to a website on our food cast page. They'll show you how to do it. The only thing I would suggest is use a cheap bottle. You don't WanNA use like a forty dollar bottle of wine to make touch short. So get like two buck chuck at Traderjoes what about if you only use like? The white wine what if I only like Chardonnay and the House without worrying. Pattern. Do Tie I. Don't know I've been tie-dying Teen I. Think I've. I've dyed like six or. Items Minimum I made my sister birthday tie-dye pants. I've made I've taken a lot of my vintage t shirts I'm GonNa, try this I. think it sounds it sounds really fun and the best part is like if I do open a bottle of wine a very rarely finish it. So it's something to do with the wine the extra red wine that's just been sitting in your fridge. If you get thirsty, you can like ring out the extra into your mouth. As long as it's clean shirt. That's all I got. Okay. Well so let's get into the subject of the day. Subject of the day is meal prep and you know I personally like I always say I'm kind of uncoordinated in the kitchen I don't think of myself. I was like I'm a meal prep or do I have the patience to sit and prepare things and put them in cute little containers and I was thinking no, that's not very me. But when I thought about it further I was. Like that is not really what the definition of meal prepping is to me and to US Jamie and we've had this conversation philosophically. It's really anything that you can do to make your life easier when it comes to thinking about what foods you're going to be eating for the week, right? Yes. It is preparing for your meals, not necessarily just preparing meals exactly, and especially you know during this time when we are home a lot more we may or may not be. Getting takeout or bringing in food a lot of our food is being made by us like it's now is the best time ever to start thinking about what you can do to make your life easier. So you don't fall back and make that phone, call an order that pizza in or just grab something that you might not be happy that you ate afterwards. So the best thing you can do is really thinking advance about what you can keep on hand how you can. Either prepare it or how you will prepare it, and so you're ready for anything. It's
7 Little Known Copywriting Hacks
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. Today. We are going to talk about seven little. No. In copywriting hacks and kneels GonNa Start I with any, you're gonna Homey Star I. Okay. So number one, what's funny is most people being by copy like, Oh, I want to be amazing like Ogilby for. Oh. I wish I can have my words to slow super smoothly from just like how Frank Kern does it. So the first copy I have for you is you don't need to be amazing writer the key to converting in getting people to renew your copying buying becoming a lead is actually answering What issue someone may have when on your landing or potentially buying, you answer those objections. A good example of this is you can use survey monkey hot, whatever you want type farm to survey people on your page, find out what issues they have an integrate those within your copy answered, their objections to suck at writing more conversions. All right number two. So when I'm writing I like using sentiment analysis tool, so you can just sent him an analysis, but put him whatever copy you have whether it's a headline or maybe it's Longer form thing, and you just dump it in there and basically score how positive or negative your content is an in general. If I'm trying to write an ad I wanted to be generally more positive. I. Don't like to induce too much fear. Yes. Fear is certainly one emotion you can tap into, but the Jenner I tried to look for positivity. So just go sentiment analysis tool. The third copy hacked that I have for you is all about showing the right copy at the right time. So for example, you have a Webinar may have copied that convinces people to watch your Webinar. If someone doesn't attend your women but registered you wanNA email him copies about the missing the Webinar. In the next, they can go and watch the Webinar if they watch the Webinar ended in by you can have copy answering. Answering objections on why most people don't buy and results would get the by your art service. So figure out what copy you need a in each place to maximize your conversions and have it there. It's not about how smooth you're right. It's about answering objections at the right time in the right place. Number four is create a swipe file. What I mean by that. If you are scrolling through Instagram, you're scrolling through facebook and. And you see in that stops you that is known as a pattern interrupt. So what you should do there is if you actually like the ad and if you think you can draw some inspiration from it, save it, you can save these ads, put him into a collection, and then from there, the beauty of that is you can refer back to these ads, and then you can draw without having to create something from. From scratch, if you see headlines that you like put him into a swipe file, you WANNA create a entire swipe folder where you just pull inspiration from and you don't necessarily need to try to reinvent the wheel here. You can go swipe dot co to try to pull more inspiration. They have great long-form landing pages and sales letters in there. Just don't try to do everything on your own draw from lean on other people. People right stat under shoulders, and you're going to be fine as Ogilby said, and this gets into number five. As we said, eighty cents of the dollar spot on the headline. So what I want you to do is come up with multiple headline variations, fair copy, and you want to try to figure out which headline resonates the most deal customer. You can either upload look like audiences Melissa onto facebook and run ads with. Different. Different headline variations see which one gets the most cooks. All right. Number six for me would be using the framework from breakthrough advertising. So breakthrough advertising still think it's a really great book and you can get it for about one hundred, twenty, five bucks now, I google it, and so here's the framework, the life cycle or from someone going from the top to the bottom when people interact with you, a customer interacts with you. You is usually start unaware, and then they become probably wear. Then they become aware of a solution than your solution, and then you can make an offer to them. So think about that, you can use DA right awareness, interest, decision action, kind of similar, but unaware problem where solution where your solution, and then you give him off i. that is basically how you take from top to bottom when you're trying to actually get the. The convert this framework actually provides to go in with a video can go in with a sales letter can go within a long form. Add. It works really well,
Galaxy Unpacked News
"Today there was no surprise in what was announced because everything leaked. In the days and weeks before the event, in fact, last night. Evan. Blasts. Just does leaked every single. hooped it out. It was there on his feed if you wanted to learn about what was going to happen. In on August, fifth, you could go to his feet nonetheless, there was a lot to talk about. So we'll start with the galaxy note twenty. There are two phones, they are not that different incised this year, but they are very different feature sets. There is three hundred dollars between them. Along with a lot of differences in. The way that they're built, they're designed their cameras, their battery, their storage, basically everything else about them, but they look fairly similar. And we'll start there. So Andrew, you've got a chance to play with these two phones at aforementioned hands on session. What's your quick take on them? So, yet, it's a different strategy than the no ten as you as you say there that the the note we kind of that, the note twenty was going to be the small one and it's not These phones are within a couple millimeters of each other in terms of height and width, and only about ten grams apart on weight. So they're both. Big phones third of a roughly galaxy s twenty plus size. They're actually both a little smaller than s twenty ultra. Fantastic. But the you just immediately noticed that the ultra is the high end high high end one, and there's something a little off about the twenty They don't even use the same design, which is kind of weird. The this kind of flat boxy. Style with the you know really tight corners on the note, twenty old Tra is classic note, and then you look at the regular twenty in, it's kind of more rounded. The bengals are a little bigger at as a flat screen. The the radius of the corners on the display is different for some reason, it just doesn't really look like the same phone and then you flip it over in the back. Is this Matt. Plastic finish rather than glass and And it's just so weird when you see them side by side now, I'm not sure how normal people will perceive these when they look at them in person may be one on one rather than together. But when you look at them together, it just feels like this is one actual note, and then another like galaxy s something or another that they decided to put a stylus in, and then you look at the internals and that kind of the story continues there. Yeah I mean, there's something to be said about pudding, the snapdragon eight, sixty five plus in the main line, no twenty. But also you know festoon it with a plastic back or as they call it classic because they want to bring black. Did. Glass whole of some sort but I don't know what's what's what's your take on that? There really is so severely separating these two phones for the first time in functionality. But putting of, but putting obviously, what is a very expensive component in the snapdragon eight, sixty, five plus front and center? Yeah. I assume that the eight sixty five pluses there. From just a standardization standpoint because they're releasing at the same time. So they might as well have the same chipset with the same radio. You know, obviously, they both have the same five G. capabilities, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense because you don't need the eight, sixty, five there when it's a ten ADP display at sixty hertz when Samsung when? You know one twenty Hertz across the board on everything else and talked up this huge game about how one twenty Hertz is. You know all amazing on the no twenty ultra and it's on the tablet seven reduces your aspen latency. They went sixty hertz on the display and they only put eight gigs of Ram in it so. The the higher end chip set on its own doesn't make a lot of sense, and that's not really ever going to be the bottleneck and what you're doing. Anyway. So I, kind of just write that off. But would you add up all those little things? It seems. Unnecessary to harp on it so much. But you got to remember that these by Samsung Zone emission are for the the fans who are really ended this kind of SPEC, nerd stuff getting the best of the best, and then you deliver this note that we're talking about this with the League's feels more like a note, twenty light. But of course, it's priced the same as in as twenty. Yeah. That sounds very strange. Mean hot. So you remember going hands on with the note, no ten light at CS earlier this year, and that phone was positioned as the you know giving everybody the note experience for. Six hundred dollars. But if you dug into the specs, it was actually. Less interesting than the s ten light that eventually went on sale in North America. So what's your take on that the the? Delta. Between these two phones and kind of the price difference being only three hundred dollars even though there is such a major SPEC difference. I mean I think the fact that they both have the same processor definitely helps kind of close that gap a bit. But a again, you know sixty hertz and and the plastic backing, it's. It's really strange because the s twenty series starts at the same thousand bucks. You're getting all the Nice things that the new twenty alter has i. think the thing that. Sort of justifies the regular note twenty away maybe not quite is that it's not a downgrade in any sort of way from the note, Ten Asya losing the the glass back You know I've seen a lot of people lately saying that they prefer plastic bags because they're. You know they're not as fragile and whatever else. But I. I, definitely would prefer the glass personally. But you know like you're not losing sixty. Hertz. Urges, are you not losing one twenty hurts because the note ten had sixty to begin with?

"So. We told you earlier about this big case. The Supreme Court decided to add to the docket later this year. A case that could conceivably invalidate the entire affordable. Care Act rallied. Yesterday there was a different healthcare case in front of the court about abortion and this was really an even more pressing matter in the sense that this will be decided in just a matter of months. Abc senior Washington reporter Devon Dwyer was there at the court has justices heard these arguments and I remember when this case was brought people said on one hand. Is this huge? Because it's got big implications for abortion rights on the other hand the court already ruled Unin identical case right. So why was this being argued at all ever just four years ago? The Supreme Court struck down a Texas admitting privileges law requiring doctors who perform abortions to be able to get their patients in the hospitals within thirty miles of the clinics means every time. I WANNA walk into an abortion selling our nation. She's going to have to wonder. Will I be coming out alive? The implications of stretch far beyond Texas about two dozen states have similar laws alone behold the at the time passed a nearly identical law. Law was upheld and so the justice at the Supreme Court took it up taking a second look at a nearly identical issues of the question is what chain in a five three decision. Justice Kennedy. The swing vote joined the courts for liberals to rule that the restrictions went too far justice. Anthony Kennedy the famous swing vote. Who decided that case is no longer there. And so this is the first test on abortion For the two conservative justices appointed by president trump. And this new conservative majority. Oh so this. Is this conceivably if there was a conservative majority? That was going to overturn precedent from just a couple of years ago. This would be the court to do it. What what was the sense you got from these justices? As they heard the arguments I was in the courtroom yesterday Brad and right out of the gate the abortion rights group. That was challenging. This Louisiana Law went straight to precedent for years ago. After the we the Anna Today. Very little baffled. The guy in the Middle Brad is chief justice John Roberts. We know that he is supportive. Of the idea of precedent. We also know that he can be something of a broker now on this new corps and he was openly grappling yesterday with this question of how far these admitting privileges laws and the courts Texas decision of just four years ago should apply. We didn't keep this this litigation because we wanted to divide president kept it going because everything about our cases. Different is any hospital. Admitting privileges law for abortion unconstitutional. Do they all create undue burdens? Or is there a chance that the facts in each case state by State Merit special consideration? So one thing we could see the court do is Send this back to a lower court to perhaps review the Louisiana Law in light of Sort of a more modest ruling a middle ground if you will signalling to all these states that we've seen line up over the past year with new regulations that they need to tailor them in a certain way to pass muster at the court and despite the complications doesn't sound that complicated to the ears of Democrats had Chuck Schumer essentially saying this is just this. Just them trying to essentially try a new case with better judges. Yeah anytime abortion comes at the Supreme Court. It is explosive. My name is renee bracy sharpen. We saw that yesterday at times in the Supreme Court Chamber which was packed members of Congress at the Front row representatives from planned parenthood representatives from right to life movements. All packing this room ask. The argument was going on Brad. The top Democrat in the US Senate Chuck Schumer of New York was out on the front steps of the Supreme Court calling out the conservative justices by name. I want to tell you I wanna tell you Kevin off. You have released the long wind and you will pay the price in those comments Brad. In extraordinary public direct response from the chief justice himself just hours after the argument concluded he put on paper statement. Rebuking Schumer for those comments calling them. A direct attack on Sydney members of the core. Schumer's office tells. Abc News that he was simply referring to Republicans their Senate Republicans. They're the ones that will pay the price in November. And you'll never be able to do what you're trying to do now ever ever again here that over there on the far right you're gone in November as you will but it is unmistakable. His words used the word you quite a few times and talking about those two members of the court and of course president trump himself has also criticised justices also by name. But he's also been swatted at not quite as directly by Chief Justice John Roberts before. But it's John Roberts. China play referee in all of this desert wire. Thanks so much. They spread and one last thing you know. Instagram Kinda pulled a snapchat when it introduced stories. Well then it's parent facebook instagram. I guess as did what's APP and Youtube. Even dating APPs tried something like this will now. Twitter is trying to pull up all of them. That's right. Twitter is testing out stories feature little snapshots of your day. That will go away within twenty four hours. They're called fleets get it. They're like tweets but more anyway the idea is you'll have your twitter feed but then at the top you'd see little circles that look just like instagram stories of those your fleets which weird here is all those other services. I mentioned pictures and videos thing right. Well here it's mainly just quick messages. And what world do you WanNa see an even more temporary version of someone's twitter post? I'm glad you asked because critics of said look at the problem with twitter right now. It's not that it's too temporary is that it's too easy to get harassed by strangers will here. You'd have a new way to potentially make quick thoughts accessible to a smaller universe of people your actual friends although there's another thing at work here too because in a culture where more people are deleting their tweets wary of getting canceled. Will now this new service being tested in Brazil it? I will do that for you. Here's my issue like. I follow friends on Instagram and facebook. I WanNa see their stories. I follow thousands of people on twitter. Who I just do not want to click through each of their thoughts throughout the day. I'd start here tomorrow. If you hit subscribe remember.

"York about a thousand people ordered to self quarantine. Al- possibly connected to one patient in this hospital but also little things the release of the upcoming twenty fifth James Bond Film. No time to die has been pushed back from April to November amid corona virus. Concerns like at one point yesterday to pack of pure real was being resold on Amazon. For one hundred seventy dollars so lots of uncertainty out there and I wanNA bring. Abc's and Flaherty who covers federal agencies to break down the US governmental response here so an Congress got it's eight billion dollars right like two months after all the fear started. What what does that actually get us? That's right it. Gets you quite a bit. Actually I think there were. No expenses spared in this one Eight point three billion dollars. That's about triple of what trump initially said he wanted. I asked for two and a half billion. It looks like they're going to give us eight and a half billion. I don't think that's ever happened to me before. Three Billion Dollars for vaccines and therapies They're also talking about low interest loans for small businesses. That that's gotTA help Some of the investors on that and then also one million dollars to fight The Corona virus overseas. So that it doesn't come to the United States and you had mentioned How few people were being tested in this country right like South Korea? They're testing the ten thousand people a day or something here. It's not nearly that much. Is that about to turn a corner? Is that another thing the government can do right. That's been a big problem since this started but there are two things that have happened one. Is that the. Us government has contracting with a private company. They think that there's about twenty five hundred kits that can go out by the end of this week. An in each kit is five hundred tests. So that's you do the math. It's one point two five million US That's going to be available to the American public. Our objective ultimately in quickly as possible is to have tests made through these commercial laboratories and commercial providers. That your local doctor. Your your. Cvs Your Med check is able to have a corona virus test the other thing that the CDC did was they relaxed the rules on these labs that they can start developing their own tests. So it's possible. That hospitals will be able to test people in real time I do believe they still have to send the results to a CDC lab to get verified. But that's GONNA change a lot. For as far as access goes for the American people in the private health insurance of every American as well as covered by Medicare and Medicaid. But I do want to make a point on this Brad. Is that one point. Two five million tests. It's still a fraction of the American public. And that's going to create some interesting issues when people start calling their doctor and say okay. You have the test. Can I get tested? I have a cough. You how does it? Do you know how that works if if you are feeling under the weather do you just you able to test when you if you call the hospital like what happens? Well it's going to depend on where you live and it's going to depend on your symptoms and it's going to depend on what access to the tests that they have at that particular time. I think there's going to be priority. Given to people in Places Lake Washington state researchers here in Washington tell us that their analysis of samples of the virus strongly suggests it has been spreading in this state for the past six weeks but You know one of the things that's going to happen. Doctors are going to become the gatekeepers on this. This is important because it frees clinicians doctors to be able to test people for Corona virus without restriction using their clinical judgment based on signs and symptoms. So if your doctor says well have you had a fever cough We're in an area where there's a large outbreak. Maybe it would make sense to test you. Cdc now moving to rapidly expand the number of Americans who can get tested now for the corona virus. But the question tonight. Are there enough tests? Available one concern. I did talk to a health official. Who said you know? What if there are fraudulent doctors out there? Who want to give bogus tests are went to sell tests and stuff. So that's actually like another concern of this that without any sort of government regulation there could be a flip side so I do think that people need to be aware of scams and they need to be working with a legitimate doctor and somebody who they trust on this yuccas according purell and begging for tests is not really where we wanna be going here on both sides that equation though people trying to keep the supply going in public health information flowing as well and thank you all right. Thanks.

"I think Toronto or Boston is going to give them a series. I don't think they're gonNA cake. Walk through these. I don't think Miami can give him a series regular season success notwithstanding Philly. I just I picked him to make the finals before the season. My locked into that take does that mean. I have to pick them now. And how does this work? How does this work right now? I'm picking the bucks to make the finals when the playoffs start but I do think one of those teams I think. Those teams have the personnel to make them sweat more than the ten game differential in the standings would indicate and that there will be a moment of stress in either one of it has to be the conference finals. That's looking like those teams are going to go one two three so I guess what I'm saying is in the comfort. The conference finals. I think Milwaukee will have a moment where they are seriously tested and if things go wrong in that moment if we see last season's Eric Bledsoe and George Harrison the same time if x Y Z. I think they could be slightly vote more than slightly vulnerable. But I but that I right now I think they come out of the east. I think they're the overwhelming repeats more loudly for the bucks fans overwhelming favorites to come out of the East But I think one of those teams has the goods to push them. Yeah I think you're not even there. It sounds like you're expecting. Just I'm not gonNA listen all season long. The Raptors have demonstrated. They have more defensive creativity than any team in recent memory. I mean they have an ability to respond with tailored solutions for difficult ups and I suspect in a seven game series. They're gonNA figure that out at least two games and then let the chips fall where they may and it's GonNa it's GonNa require family going crazy or norm Powell is becoming this. You know this multipurpose guard who who can attack and just completely scramble and again when you go back to Boston I just. I love the amount of ground. That defense covers like fluently with absolute promptness. I just I've enjoyed watching the Celtics. Defense I love how they impact the ball like I love how they they kind of. They they scrammed they rotate out beautifully. And he just reminds me of like a really kind of spurs defence from back in the day. I it's just it's it's it's on a string all those cliches. I just think Boston's really good. While and they're really getting again. What would would would tatum is doing. Like I love the he's working. You know much much less off you know kind of you know of isolation 's and now they're kind of he's he's become a dribble handoff pick and roll guy. Who by the way? If you need to a fire drill can still be your guy with six seconds on the clock Kemba Kemba pull up three guy obviously over the Lopez dropped now on the other side like I said if Kemp is on the floor. I and and it's struggled time a little bit for the bucks. It's close like I. I want. I want them to give you honest the ball or put them in a pick and roll one way or the other and say whereas Kemba Walker Hunt him down and then look I also think the Celtics are really good. The Celtics have proven. They are really really good when one of their four best players Hayward tatum Brown Kemba doesn't play like when when Kemp was off the floor. And it's like smart. They're starting lineup. But essentially smart in chemists place dinner really hard to score on God their good defensively by the way. How much fun also teams? This'll be the third year in the row. If that matchup surfaces that they've I I kind of like I I wouldn't call it a rivalry but it's been a very interesting chess match to watch the other the well. So here's the speaking of Boston. The flip side of are we overreacting to four straight losses to a championship team last year. Did we also overreact or or should we check ourselves on like when so MILWAUKEE SWEEPS DETROIT? That was not a team. Blake didn't play. They're not worthy playoff opponent. Then they rampaged Boston for one. Winning the two in in the garden in TD Lorna go up three one end. The Celtics is we know that as they were last year. Did we give them? Maybe too much credit for that. Like that. Celtics team was kind of falling apart. Marcus Smart told me honest. On on this podcast. A couple of months ago that after they lost game two he kinda feel the team splintering and knew it was going to be over like you know so. I think I think if there's skepticism some of it stems from well did they. Did they really do much in the playoffs last year like really? I think it's interesting where you come out on. Are we making too much of the four straight losses to the raptors or? Did we make too much of the first two rounds. I think both those things honestly could sure. Yeah I mean I would say that Milwaukee has something to do with the ultimate disintegration and they were falling apart at the seams but they have by the way they also. If I recall correctly dominated a game one do they not I was are the Celtics Celtics with the Celtics. One game one by it had had had had had a very prominent role in in shoveling dirt on the two thousand nineteen o question. No question and that's what I I. I was so impressed with how they went to Boston. And just drilled them in those two games is that both. Those.

"Thing about this is in Toronto. Hurt them with this last year to. He's not Lebron has a passer and that's obviously not a not a not really a kind of an unfair knock that but he didn't react to super well too hard double team last year or like how unpredictable. Help or like help. That came to him when he was spinning in a little blind to it and I'm sure we will see teams. Mix Up that kind of stuff and say beat us with the pass and it's going to be really interesting to see how he can do it because he is a very good passer. He's become a very good passer but he but he. He didn't react well in some circumstances to that last writer. Cherry picking granted. There's a play in the third quarter against o'casey the other night where jaanus is doubled exactly talking about on the left block and he finds continent in the weak side. Right corner in a way that I I think there is. I have no explanation. For how he sought and how he timed it and how he ultimately threaded the needle. It was so ridiculous and I think comments and missed the shot but it again. It was something I kind of went to the game to look at. You know Mr you know having the conversation with him twenty four hours before. I'M NOT GONNA jump over five guys right all right okay. So he's going to double him tonight. I'm I'm fairly certain of that That's not a reach and I WANNA see how I'm going to watch it again and again like He. He's better at it now again. The the pressure of the defense the Ba- creates a situation. Where the impulse of the guy who has been passing beautifully out of double teams all winter just now he wants to jump over five guys and we'll see I mean so much of what we're talking about is is Kanye honest do X. Can Paul George Y when you talk about these primary players? It's really a question of impulse. I mean they all have ridiculous repertoire of skills. It's how do you apply? I mean in in listening to kind of Jaanus say that is this now. Gives me something new to watch like? He's going to encounter scheme similar to Toronto threw at him last season. And and what are his impulses at that moment the deeper in the series and the closer the Games yet. I'm just and I think if the impulses are good. I think overwhelming favorites. I think it's ridiculous that they're not regard especially coming out of the east. I mean talking about the Lakers or clippers. I mean those I mean they're gonNA have harder arguably ardor second round series than in the bucks probably encounter and the conference finals. Although I am I am becoming a big believer in both Toronto in Boston. I mean the those are fun conference final. I'm looking forward to Eastern Conference. Finals of great deal The other thing with Lopez and I'm glad you brought up Coniston who I think is underrated and still a little bit underutilised by Bud The other thing they can do and have have done is take Lopez off the floor more. If it ever really becomes a problem they could just play honest at center or this Jaanus Marvin Williams thing you know. Whoever IS THE CENTER? Usually honest has been guarding the centers lately. Ilyasova has mostly been excised from their rotation which I think is is. I don't trust yourself in the playoffs. I just don't i. I know that I'm a little lower on him than most people I just don't trust his his foot speed. I don't trust his jumper as much But they can go to these JANAS AT CENTER LINE UPS which they've leaned a little bit more into this year Obviously they have both Lopez twins so they can play a traditional center the whole game both those guys are good players and again in the east. They may not run. They may not run into matchup period. That troubles the Lopez twins On defense but they can go that way with the honest at center if they want. And I think that's when that's when the name Brogden becomes comes back into the conversation because then you need an extra perimeter guy and you look at those lineups and it's like yeah bledsoe. Just make it up. Bledsoe Hill Middleton Janas forgive the fifth spot to whoever West Matthew Trust Stephen Central yet. Oh I'm glad you brought up the yes I kind of trailing Jan even though can play even chancellor can play. He's a fantastic rebound or he's a very instinctual player. He's really really smart and his shot. Although it comes and goes I think I. It looks good and I. I sent my trusted And I think basically like that's what you're betting on with Brogden and they bet correctly. So far is it's not just it's not just the added depth than there they. They go twelve deep and good players. I argued this last week. I think every single player on their team is better than they were last year. Everyone and that includes Brook Lopez Shooting. Twenty eight or twenty nine percent from three. Because I think he's better defensively. I think is floor game. He's better he's making like off. The dribble passes and stuff because postgame better. I think diva show has gone from out of the rotation to like spot starter slash. Maybe their sixth man. Everyone on this team is better. And so when you go back and look as wiser. Lingering doubt will the lingering doubt is this? This are are we overreacting to four straight losses to a really great team a championship team as the bucks sort of went through some growing pains in. Bledsoe in particular went through some growing pains. Are we overreacting to that? Part of how we the collective we might be overreacting to. That is sort of wrongly assuming stasis for everybody else from that moment to this one whereas I think everyone on the team is better period right you know. I wrote this in the piece. We tend to that stasis it just we actually act as if when a team has bounced out in. May that they they somehow are the same team that arrives eleven months later. It's just ridiculous like like this it also. I mean here's what I would say generally speaking I think there's a great overlap in the Ven Diagram among people who are skeptical of the bucks if people who generally rightly subscribed to certain tropes about NBA Basketball for instance. Every team that ever got there kind of had to take their lumps early. They going back to the Pistons. Had to get you know bumped around by the Celtics and the eighties. And I I kind of grew up watching those series and then and then this you know and then the bowls kind of got you know. Bout kicked around by the Pistons and then they had a moment where they kind of prevailed over there tormentors and that I mean they're very few teams that just to just warriors their way to the first. So if we're writing the story book of the Milwaukee Bucks and the Confetti is following falling in Milwaukee this season in this June you know we will talk about the Toronto series as being an you know one of the great catalysts for their growth. I mean that's what generally happens. Teams get embarrassed or they run up against their worst instincts or they're not flexible and you know perhaps in the on the bench or you know they don't find the right right shots for the right guy. All of that happened. And then you basically have eleven months to say okay. What are the corrective measures here and all? You can judge a team on between October and April is. Are they putting those prescriptions in place? And the answer is when you watch this team as you and I do a lot. I'm seeing I'm seeing all of these deficiencies attacked. I'm seeing you know again. The the these these these more conventional steps for guys who need a little convict who needs four minutes conventional basketball here and there you know I'm seeing. Some of the depth issues is good as they were last year off the bench. You know they've gotten better. And so yeah I'm a defender and there's look it's ridiculous to get red in the face about you know okay. How dare you doubt this team? I'm just I'm bullish because again I'm seeing the things that I would have wanted to see. Have you asked me in October? What do you want to see from the bucks that would allay any fears or or skittishness you have about their playoff prospects? I'm kind of seeing that. I'd like to see you gonNA shoot a little better from the foul line Yeah that's why we took a tech. I guess they were up by thirty. Maybe he is shoot. You know what he's he's down to sixty three percent at the line. That makes me a little bit nervous to my point in your point about everyone being better. Here's just one example. Chris Middleton pick and rolls ready for this. I looked up the tracking data on this last season point nine eight points per possession. Anytime Middleton shot out of a pick and roll or pass to a teammate. Shot right away. That's bad One point zero nine points per possession period like featuring everything that happens after this season his pick and roll volume is a little up one point. Oh eight points anytime. He or his teammates shoots one point two two points per possession just monster monster numbers from from Middleton and he's running a lot more of them to or not a lot but a little bit more He's having just an absolutely fantastic the thing I would say when they again. I'm just curious like when they play Philly and they put him on on Jaanus or whenever they face a team that puts their center on us. I do sometimes wish they would use Janas the screener in pick and rolls a little bit. Like get that guy like. Don't let him be. Just load up on a runway for Jaanus but making move and cover a ball handler just for a second so. Janas has a little window of space. That's another adjustment that like to see them do more but again they've just may not face. They may not face a series where that really unless they face philly where they're really sort of worried about okay. This big center is actually sort of making. Janas sweat a little bit right or do you have any doubt that if employed that way that John is isn't the best diver in rim runner in the League. I mean Off The screen. I mean it's it's it's kind of terrifying to think about it meets with. We said that about three years about Lebron I mean I remember all of us like what are we going to see the Wade Lebron pick and roll with Lebron as the screener and by way it produced insanely efficient offense. Here's where I am on the Bucks on March Third Twenty Twenty as the world slowly spins until its ending. I'M GONNA pick the bucks gather east.

"The low post. Podcast where we have hit the seventy five percent mark of the NBA season which among other things means that. It's time to get serious about Milwaukee Bucks Pursuit of seventy wins and our friend Kevin Arnovitz frequent guests on the low post. Espn MBA rhetoric. Ordinary was just in Milwaukee and timely for us the bucks actually lost last night in Miami on the second end of a back the back is Bam out of bio and company held honest to thirteen points. Mr Arnovitz back in Los Angeles. How are you? I'm well? How were you always appreciate the am well? I forget every time that you do that so every time. It's a surprise. How IS MILWAUKEE? Milwaukee is lovely. I am A. I'm a fan of the Milwaukee. Market was Ridiculously cold though. I was told it wasn't and to trips to Kopp's frozen custard. I had it. I did kind of a Wednesday Friday working toward the cookies and cream in In the butter pecan but It's Milwaukee's functional. It's good. It's a fun place to watch basketball. That building is nice. The team is interesting. The people in it are happy it is the happiest place on NBA Earth. Right now. The Milwaukee Bucks. Let me ask you this when you left Milwaukee to come back to Los Angeles. How many people were in the security line at the airport like one on Saturday morning? It's it's like flying out of the seven. Eleven Zach is so easy. It's the only place where I've ever had in my life. Zero people in the line and the guard being like no no Sir come on. Let's go I wanNA talk to somebody. Come come come say item. E was great So so the bucks are fifty two and nine. They are on pace for seventy wins on the dots. Sixty nine point nine The geeks at five thirty eight. Give them something based on their Remaining schedule like twenty eight percent chance of reaching seventy wins and I have to say I want them to go for it and we had a by the way. Go forward strong because they're barely playing their main player. Jaanus is averaging thirty minutes. A Game Middleton is not cracking thirty and so it's not like they are pressing for seventy wins. Which is part of what makes it scary. But we had this debate. Before countdown on Friday was me and Paul Pearson Jay Williams and a few other people and Paul is just still firmly on the side of seventy. Three wins means nothing because they didn't win the championship and I completely disagree. I think the longer we get out in history the more we will look back on that. Seventy-three wins and say. Yeah you know. That's a huge disappointment. That draymond Green Punch Lebron the testicles and they didn't win the championship and that's a failing as they did. They did not accomplish their goal. In that sense it's a failure but I I do think that accomplishment is going to grow in appreciation as we. I already appreciate it and I think as time goes by that accomplishment will be respected for what it was as its own separate thing and my thing has always been ahead you get X. amount of chances at greatness that's it they're gonNA come in they're gonna go for whatever reason they're gonNA come and go fast. If you don't have to really like bust your ass like you don't have to play. Janas forty five minutes down the stretch. If you're within if you have a shot at it I say go for this history man. This this means something to me. And that's seventy three win season for the warriors still means something to me so I am on team go for it I care I have no idea if the bucks actually care. I have not asked one person on the bucks. Do you care about seventy wins. Do you think they care. Only marginally I think one of the reasons the warriors cared if they'd already want it title so it was this additional achievement within the larger well realm of their greatness. I think with the bucks right. Now there's such a focus on this title I think privately some of them would like to but not at the expense of sacrificing. Anything about the two thousand twenty. I'm just saying if you're at sixty nine on the last game of the season play everybody. That's all I'm saying I've I don't know who their last games against. I haven't checked. I don't particularly care if you're at sixty eight with two games left sixty seven with three. Try Try until it's mathematically impossible. That's all I'm asking. The thing is they are an advanced performance team. When that means is march fifteenth is sort of the moment where they want Yonathan all the guys at peak fitness in there will probably be it. I would imagine There would probably be a tapering. After that where we're not gonNA see as much of Janas between March fifteenth and April. Eleven over that matters much. Chris Middleton or Eric Bledsoe or anybody else It's just kind of how they're programmed as a team like you don't invest in the stuff in the not follow it. Unless of course he wants seventy wins in which case for seventy three wins in which case you know. Sure go forward but I I just. I don't have an expectation that they're going to be a just a balls to the wall April team. I just don't see it even if they're flirting with seventy while they're still I think like plus six per one hundred possessions or plus five and a half per one hundred possessions without Jaanus which is equivalent to like a top five or so point differential for a team so theoretically they should be able to taper. I tapered when I was a swimmer. Tapering was great. It meant just easier. Practices was awesome because swimming sucks I they they still be able to win A lot of games swings great. I just swim like three hours ago. Swimming terrible it was. Amazing is the worst eighty. Four years old is the last thing I'm able to do. I'll I'll say this I was. I was a competitive swimmer. And it's just two things number one. Any sport is more fun with the ball and teammates and swimming. You have teammates. What's not like actual teammates? It's just sort of guys sharing the pool with you and your racing. It's the other team in their clock and just going up and down. It's just pain. All it is is like pain at various speeds and intervals with various and leg movements. It's just pain. It's just okay for any sport with no people in no devices is amazing in meditative. And it's like it's it's my it's I call it my thirty minutes of sanity see I but the other thing too big to be great at swimming and I was not and I think this is true of tennis and running and any individual sport. That is physically taxing in an endurance. Way I think you have to like half a screw loose to be great at those sports. Because I was a distance swimmer now is of mediocre to good distance swimmer. Medial distance by the way in context of is because I was never a competitive swimmer. Five hundred I'm a guy who does a mile three or four days a week. Five hundred freestyle That's a cap. That's five hundred meters. Yeah that's nothing. That was the longest race in. I'm doing sixteen hundred. Yeah that was the longest off. Look at this Oh my God so I on our team which was a state championship team. Every year I was mediocre and the scheme of things. I was very good but the way to get really good at distance. Swimming is just a sprint. Like just trick your mind into be like I'm just GonNa Sprint until I can't do it anymore and I'm going to slow down and pace myself whereas I was a wimp and or seen I'd like to think San like I'm just going to pace myself out of the gate because during the first thing like pushing myself beyond my limits and sprinting when I have a lot of race left just seems like pain and I don't WanNa do that I don't use your NBA. You said your mediocre like who? Who are you like in in the if you were to apply your your NBA analog to highschool swing were you a DJ Augustine Augustine of the pool? Yeah I was a much better water polo player than I was a swimmer. I'VE NOT GONNA cut myself water polo but I was. I was swimming. I didn't I didn't have the mentality to be great at it so anyway. The Bucks now that we board your audience the bucks So you nailed it in this piece. You were there when they beat Oklahoma City by a million points. Just I didn't watch the game to me. I just saw the score and it was like when a monster marshes somebody in a video game and they go flat on the floor and you wrote this piece about how. There's this sort of lingering like in Holland you wrote about this a couple weeks ago just sort of. Why are the bucks just not overwhelming favorites? They're fifty two and nine. They have the best point differential in the lead. Like almost by double the runner up at this point and one of the best in the history of basketball every macro marker pegues them as a gigantic overwhelming favourite. And yet I don't. They are certainly not considered that. I'm not even sure. They're considered the favourite period. I don't even think fivethirtyeight has them as number one championship odds right now and you sort of tried to answer this question of why and so. The answers are obvious right. They lost in the playoffs last year. Jaanus his jumper still shaky suspicion. That Middleton is not a classic number two option Blah Blah. We can debate all of those. What I'm interested in is where Kevin Arnovitz do you fall on? The are we overlooking the obvious in the room? Here which is the bucks are going to destroy everybody. I mean I don't have any reason not to regard them as the overwhelming favourite other than the sneaking suspicion that teams furnished with guys who've gone it before our favorites over teams. That don't have those guys. And so you know you're talking about Lebron Kawai essentially in Los Angeles and I mean really nobody else I mean. I don't know that there is A. Is there another even remote contender? That has a top performer. Who quote has been there I I don't think the answer's yes so any add to that. Of course that they're in the east and I just have a trouble like I wonder if there was a different name on the Jersey. Would we even be having this conversation? Is there some? I'm kind of interested in the weather. It's rational or irrational. What what prompts. People to doubt the bucks I mean. Is it that game. Three team on the rope. So you lack the Kim. Killer mentality Is it that we are more comfortable with the notion of a of a top performer?.

No, they put together a team that allowed the ball always to be an allen's hands and for.

"Submissions. I would say last call for submissions. And if we're doing Licorice whip we gotta get those those foot long twizzlers and maybe just wait till the end of the week when supposed to get a little nicer out here. It's supposed to rain for the next couple of days. I can't be getting whipped But Anyway Yeah. Get your suggestions. He's still got a good one but we're starting all over boys. We are into March. What is our game tonight? We're all at zero zero big on in the Eastern Conference the bucks at the heat heat getting three and a half points at home so they can lose by three or less if you're picking them it's on. Nba TV. There are great home team. They're twenty five and four at home but John is is ball at forty and twenty on Sunday. It's a back to back from occupied. That was a very very early Sunday afternoon. Games true. That's like thirty two hours. In between Games Middleton. I think he's probable to play in sort of a late scratch on Sunday. Sword knacker something first. Milton has yeah neck try. He's got an Christmas bracket tries. That guy around here so I thought he would be up to speed on turtledove today. Plus Three and a half. Well you got bucks. It's tough it is a back to back for the bucks. So you're thinking maybe this loose but they just smashed the raptors in the same scenario a week ago Miami. Wow Miami okay Miami to cover Gimme Milwaukee by three and a half assed anything. I just think like the bucks to you. Know coming up that they didn't shoot the ball. Well I just don't I don't see that two games especially the Middleton's back in the mix so I think Milwaukee covers two games in a row. They're they're struggling or their starters have struggled so Even though they went six in a row they've been playing well. The heater foreign six over the last ten. But I'm taking Milwaukee the heat beat Milwaukee in the second game of the season who had something in the back of his forget. He doesn't all right. Trey only one taking Miami and the points. Everybody else has no lucky to win by four or more good luck. Everybody make sure you guys check out the podcast on the Athletic Network Bag hoops.

"No Ghazal still no surgery bucket and no Fred Van Vliet but we have seen throughout this season so many times someone from the raptors bench just steps up like Chris Boucher or turn stivers. Whoever it is. That just didn't really happen. This game became a blow up. It really wasn't a blowout until the last couple of minutes. So the raptors were put up a fight within punching distance with the BAT. Four and a half minutes to go and the wheels just fell off a little bit at the end there and Denver. Also I play the great game. I thought I thought Jamal Murray was was brilliant again. Yokich another triple double and Yokich looked aggressive early on the nuggets. Were hitting threes. They couldn't miss him. I was not yet so the thing is the raptors now the trump three in a row. So this is this is still somehow holding on to second the Celtics. Losing of guests on Saturday not help they caused but the raptors have been very resilient this season when faced with injuries. And Kyle lowry after the game. You know someone said health plan you gotTA play hot a man no excuses and I liked that mentality because I think that hold them in good stead. I guess come playoff time knowing that. There's no excuses this time. They learned last year playing with their. Why doesn't matter? We still are very very good team. Og was great. Yesterday had seven steals. He he's very very. He's a quiet light at times at times. The ball hocking hills. So yeah so I give the raptors lose it just because they didn't win any games this weekend. I'm not saying nicely done. I'm not saying you're not writing them their chances to the first round or something like that. Yuccas Yucca. In the fourth quarter last night too was just. He couldn't get his usual go through him and he wasn't able to to a horrible game. Yeah he's sitting there. The horrible fourth quarter. I thought that's the worrisome. Part is passed calcium struggling against good teams. It's happened all season long. He hasn't been effective as a number. One guy it's kind of expected. This is his first foray into this role. But that's the worrisome. Part for this team going forward. Not that they lose to the nuggets without a center. Really starting running Hollis Jefferson against Nico Yokich. You're in bad shape that just that's not gonNA work out. But they all the nuggets in the kicked their button fast-break points. They're trying to shove it down their throat and they were in half court execution. The nuggets were doing that. They won that game because they're just more talented top to bottom with all those injuries. The bigs and Fred family so Pesky Pesky is the issue Pascal. Ceac think good news on the Injury Front is Gonzalo was working up a sweat to bring it back to that pre game so I think he's pretty close to returning. Yeah and they. They need to get him in here for this little homestretch as you head into the playoffs you got comfortable with each other. Because he's been there for a while now over a year but you gotta get some reps in nurse gotta get a little more comfortable. Even though he'll change them on the fly and all that with the rotations. And who's playing when you started shorten down a little bit? But I'm not you know as a wraps fan not panicking despite the losses. Because you know if they're missing their three of their best players. That is very very tough. It's similar to what was going on with the clippers away when they were without some of their key. Guys Beverly and George in and out of the lineup and other guys like it's like Oh Dan. They're on a three game losing streak. Well don't worry when their guys are there added. The Bucks was one of those losses as well so that they're at the son's next side. There's a chance to at least they get back in the W we'll see. I don't count your chickens before they hatch all right. Who Do you got trae losers weekends well trae young? It has made it a habit and made his signature dribbling play to nutmeg guys. He got RJ Barrett this year. Ricky Rubio Will Bharti Got James Harden in the All Star game but one man he didn't get was trevor. Felt like a Simpson's episode. Old Man Yells at Guard trae young tries to go through his legs and Trevor Rees. It gives them the Robert. Ory Body. Eerily reminiscent basically. The same. Hit sends trae young flying in to trace credit and it seemed like he's like okay. Yeah he's pretty mad at me. Yeah I'll just chill out a little bit. Afterwards though Trevor Aretha had one of the most boomer quotes of all time. He said he'd told Jason Quick. The athletic I told trae young. Don't do that again not to me. At least I'd never made an all defensive team or none of that. He's an all star so we can get by me in creative ways he can get around me. But although like funnies funnies what a paper how old is this guy I looked it up? He's only thirty four but this sounds like it would have been set in nineteen thirty four. It's funny it's funny. Because after the game immediately they win talked bad found him a reason like it was being played off what happens on the court stays on the court but I felt theresa grabbed him and yanked him in there as if to say. Don't do that to me again. Think I think he already been there and found him and seek them out immediately after the game to say hey man like I'm not what the funny not with the funnies and like trade. Twenty-one what's in a way to apologise maybe the extra wet also. We're not doing that to me to your world. Barton's do I was. I was conflicted like I didn't know where I'm glad you put them in a loser here. Reason maybe because of the quote Morton anything but like I was like. Is that a winner of the weekend. Also sort of like the idea of like. You're not doing that to me. I don't mind it like it's like okay. You got clown but you buy. I don't care just because he's a little bit. I guess yeah but then I also see it from flipside like come on man. Maybe he's also looking at looking that great things. Yeah exactly right. So what do you think this does infiltrate trae going forward to see? Maybe stop doing auto. Does he go back to keep doing. It picks targets like he's GonNa go for a younger gone not a vet checks their ide- before he doesn't excuse me. Are you with the funniest bad choice? See like I think he's a bit. That's what I'm saying. I think it actually. It's more the the personality of less the age I think particular player like there are going to be some guys that are going to be offended by that. Just don't Wanna be embarrassed like that so hold on who likes getting the ball put through thorough. They can take though they can take. It is the better way to put some obviously Trevor Rees cannot he literally like I'm bout to get clowned here and I'm going to be on? Haussa highlight was on anyway. He was on but he's also like no. We're doing this in my way so I'm just going to body check into the front row any right. I thought trae young handling like if you don't want me drilling through your legs. I won't just yell at me. Knocked me over. I'm alright I'll get somebody else. The next game that sense of humor okay. That's a great one. That's a fun loser the weekend tasks that you got Lebron James Loser. I thought he was great this weekend. He was but there were a couple Internet worthy moments in a negative way. Just like getting the ball put in through your legs. What RON NASTY NASTY FLOP? When Dillon Brooks hit him on Saturday he flopped like a madman. He taught basically Lebron's crown got touch. Where where's his hairline starts at the three point line and he flailed backwards like he was hammered. And unfortunately for him. This clip is going around in super slow mo so it looks like there's like a two to three second delay. There's like a beat beat flailed I. It was quick but it looks terrible. Also on Sunday late in the game. I think it was about a minute. Thirty left. Lebron one of the smartest players in the history of basketball goes to inbound it and just starts walking like he's playing a pick up game he didn't inbound it at all and so the the old crossing the baseline wissel don't see that too often the weirdest and the best player of all time to ever do it. Doris Burke on the call for that one. She like she was going crazy. Like wow. What's going on here the Brain Fart. Yeah the weekend. We'll see the old loop see. Yeah that was weird but happens to the best of them. Yup Lebron a tough loser the weekend. It was pretty good. Hey He's MVP he's MVP. How can you be a loser? Didn't even while he lost on Saturday. I mean there was a pretty big difference between losing Lebron on Saturday winning Lebron on Sunday like he just showed up from skip on Sunday and he was chilling out on Saturday. Was it the fact that it was a nationally televised game. Perhaps there's cars them up but they're eight and no on the second of backtracks pretty sweet. Sweet for the Lakers bounced back. No matter what happens. Few many losers is a weekend here. Let's get them in Scotty pippin. He admitted on Friday. That the dunk contest judges messed up the final round scores. This is pip quote. We punch the scores in and came up wrong. We thought we were going to give them both a tie. Now THIS IS PIP. Was on the five-judge panel with Common Way candace. Parker Shadwick and pippen. So he says this is now the second time we've heard this sort of account from what happened. Is that the judges were planning on tying Gordon jumps over Taco fall. They'll give him a forty eight. That'll time with Jerry. Jones probably get like sort of one more round here. There'll be some way to decide but he wouldn't call out who specifically it was. I'm sure they'll still think he's leaning towards Dwayne Wade. But he wouldn't name them but pippen said the judges entered their scores and then they sort of noticed the mystique but they were locked out of the system like once your scores in. I don't think you can go start changing it you know. Yeah and then you know Gordon was a forty seven Jerry Jones Junior. You Win the are you saying the judges should just have the author be so much. Lay Down Pippen going on that Steph. Curry what happened that loser. The weekend of the warriors for lying to US Liars Steph curry was reportedly set to return on Sunday coming back from the hand injury but the warriors wanted to give them more practice time. Kerr told reporters that curry hadn't scrimmaging. So in a statement released by the team Korea set to practice with the Warriors G. League affiliate the Santa Cruz Warriors today and his Detour. Return is still undetermined. A lot of people think a little later this week maybe Thursday match up on that we could see current. But that was a bit. A bummer. Is All excited for Sunday? And exactly wasn't there. You want to get a scrimmage in play the wizards that easy and then finally one loser the weekend Tuesday. Whoa boy committee of one. That is myself. It was sort of next to impossible to try to figure out who should win. Sunday's wool boy. And here's why listen? Listen to these lines from Sunday and the pressure on myself. My ears are right now of these gentlemen to give the honor to. Jaanus forty one twenty and six in less than thirty five minutes on Sunday. Porzingas thirty eight thirteen in four six. Three pointers made in five blocks..

"This is a better season than he's had from his last three seasons at the very least he made it possible for the rockets. The play this way and you know with Mike Dantonio coach. You kind of always look for the minor players that he's going to turn into a significant role player. Somebody who's GonNa get a surprisingly huge contract. You wouldn't have thought a guy who is a one time. Mvp a multiple all star all NBA player would be able to find another avenue to have success in his career. He he's been incredible as has COVINGTON. As you mentioned I think he has also made it possible for the rockets to play the style. He's averaging one and at one point one steals per game. That's not great but two point seven blocks for him would be second in the NBA. It was over the course of an entire season. So between him being a rangy defender who was able to protect the rim and PJ Tucker being stout defender who can handle the big guys. They don't have tall guys but they got guys who play the position the right way for the NBA right now. It's fun to watch interesting thing. For the rockets since gone to the centralist basketball they're beating teams by an average of almost twenty points at the three point. Line EVERY GAME. So does that change in the postseason. Our TEAM'S READY TO GUARD THE THREE POINT LINE. A little bit more in a series. I would think so. I would think that that number at least like shrinks by half or something like that. But that's that's why they're winning. Teams aren't ready to play this team. I'd like to give a winner the weekend. No surprise here to the Milwaukee Bucks and Janas specifically another perfect weekend from Milwaukee Friday. They dismantled the thunder one. Thirty three to eighty six. It's a good thunder team that dominated the hit twenty one threes in that one. Milwaukee did held. Okay see to under thirty seven percent shooting then on Sunday they followed up with a much uglier victory versus Charlotte in Charlotte versus the Hornets. Now couldn't hit a shot to save their life and that one but they got the win ninety three eighty five. They held the Hornets to thirty five point. Three percent shooting from the floor so even worse than they did or okay so did against them on the Friday. Both of those games Chris Middleton. They're all star guy who's great on both ends of the floor and had been on fire for last month and a half but Yonathan. Those two games averaged thirty six point. Five points sixteen point five rebounds six assists and shot over sixty two percent from the floor. And you WANNA talk about. Barely breaking a sweat. I mean how many minutes did even play in the combined minutes. It was like something like sixty five or something so he scored in basically every way imaginable over the weekend pick and rolls and fastbreak dunks then the jumpers and apple and getting there. And it's it's it's wild though. I will say this about the bucks. I think we need to put a moratorium on the idea idea of like. We're not talking about the bucks anymore because everyone is talking about the box at least every piece of MBA media. I'm consuming in terms of either listening to it watching it or reading it or talking about the bucks. Yeah they don't just overseeing we're not talking about the buck but we are. It's a leftover take. We weren't talking about what's when they wanNA Eighteenth Street Games. They were not the Big Story League but the bucks are getting better their first twenty games. They lost three times their second twenty games. They lost three times their third twenty games. They lost twice and one of them was the pacers right before the break. That's hilarious lost to look at now. Oh this is the one game. Maybe that you didn't give one hundred percent effort but yeah people are talking about the bucks. Giannis is locking up the MVP and we got beefs. You GotTa let to see a player versus while you're beef James hearted any honest. I think you saw that on Friday not against the thunder. I think Janas absolutely went out there with that sort of chip on his shoulder. Thank I'm not that skilled. I mean it's all sort of blown out of proportion to some degree. Honest even has now sort of tried to put sand on the on the fire and try and put it out. Because he's you know I'm just working on my game. And we're moving on which is a bummer. Because it was sort of a nice little back and forth the problem is that Jaanus are the James Harden looks at himself as a sweaty guy. He finishes the game that Guy's dripping with sweat and then you see John is he. Plays Twenty five minutes and has forty one points like. It's no big deal. And he's not sweating man that guy. That guy should be held a little bit. Half-year welby start sweating out there. These two teams do play very smart in a couple of weeks. He got the rockets in the box. So maybe it'll be reignited. A little bit there in terms of their disdain for each other legit to get us back a few years. Yeah absolutely you know. Hardin UPSET THAT. Jaanus like won the MVP and and then and then with a couple of jobs around the star game and even after the game and then Rachel Nichols ask hard. Nabil that he doesn't hold back with the whole like but he didn't see it either. Yeah yeah that's right that's right but I have Everybody loves this. You know it's fine. A lot of these guys are best buddies at times even on the floor. It appears like we just talked about with Lebron and all the young guys. But it's every once in a while you like to have two elite superstar player that maybe you don't care all that much I love it. I think everybody is it. All stemmed from Yannis during the All star draft saying no not drafting James Harden. I want someone who can pass. That was a real calm and it only got brought up two weeks later. It's James Harden only got brought up to James Harden weeks later. That really got things going yet. James are never saw it but never saw the first time you heard of it from Rachel Nichols on. Espn the counter to that is Yanni's only made these little jabs at hardened because of all the talk of the year you win an MVP from the from the rockets side of things. They know it should be hard and it should be hard and it should be said. He had the narrative over the summer and there was a video that someone dug up. Jaanus and harding going at it and I think it was the second year Hardened bumped him to the floor and Janna Scott up gotten his face. I was a nice fine to over the long time going for the deep dives now he also got the one where like Jaanus posting up on. Maybe the left side of the cordy whips like a right handed pass underneath them and hoop and it just blasts hard in the face like a total by chance but it works perfect for this beef. Yeah we mean team that won right with honored that week with the MVP trophies as the ball bouncing off hardens face. If I remember correctly yes okay. But the winner of the weekend. I think everybody's talking about them. They're they're a title contender there at the top of the list. And they look unstoppable even when criminal newsroom play and they're picking up WS and they're just just next level right now and he's winning. Mvp A love. This little sort of push we got going here for Lebron I get it. The guys putting up thirty point triple doubles in a seventeenth is amazing and his team. Whenever he's on a team and he's healthy their title contenders that's cool. You know gentry talking about this after the Pelicans game but there is no way that you honest not winning. Mvp this year not a chance in hell. Especially if the I mean not even if they hit seven especially because they're not gonNa drop off the last twenty games so they don't unanimous well. That's the only question to me. I actually don't think it will be. I think someone will throw a throw. Lebron Lebron I do but I also I don't really care all them not just like Lebron is number two though right harden I I agree with that part of that is Westbrook it is Westbrook and hardens out wrong. You know a year or two ago like narrative plays a part plays a massive massive part absolutely and it is right now honestly to. We're saying it's march second the MVP is locked up. Yeah but you agree with that. Unfortunately yeah he's just been that good on the best team in one of the best ever seen regular season. Yeah one of the best teams. You've ever seen that forty point win on Friday. As you said over the thunder their third forty plus point win the season which is tied all time for the most in a season. A lot of teams have done it. And there's been another team this year. That's done it surprisingly. Who's the other team? That's three forty point games. This season offering raptors not the raptors couple of Dallas Mavericks. Mark Says Right Nice. They have the best offense in the League so they mopped some teams could be the best offense ever. That's kind of what it was. Yeah could be for could be true. It's weird any worry that the rest of the bucks are struggling right now. They got by the thunder and the Hornets with the rest of their starters. Shooting thirty percent besides the Addis any worries any worries that carries over to six weeks from now. I mean a little right like brook. Lopez's is shooting twenty eight percent from three and he has been off all year but his contributions on the defensive end have really filled in where he was going to be. But come playoff time. I mean you're going to see the pack pain you're GONNA to see. Let's build a wall and make Brook Lopez's beat us then rather have Don Janas dunk all over your heads. I mean Lopez wasn't great in the playoffs last year. I don't feel like Marvin Williams just got there. He's only shooting thirty one percent. What the team. So just like the rockets could get hot and win a playoff series and go all the way to the finals. The opposite could be true for the bucks right. I mean is George L. GonNA shoot fifty percent from three in the playoffs. Maybe but also maybe not and then also the flip side of that too is how they play. Defense is well. We're going to give you a bunch of shirts. Isn't that far. Fetched to think one of these teams in a seven game series being in the East or in the finals like just catches fire for a couple of games and hits a open. Fairly Open..
"bucks" Discussed on The Starters
"Yeah. We will see, but we will have a game five that is Wednesday night. It is wild. It is wild trying to keep track of all this also on Monday night, the bucks, they swept the pistons bucks. When the four games of the series by thirty five points, twenty one points, eighteen points and twenty three points though game floor was oddly sort of close one of the closer games. It felt like in the series because Reggie Jackson was on a fire in the first half at twenty yet. Blake with a gutsy performance. Dragon his bionic leg around out there. A mummy up on that one leg. Yeah. Look like, a mummy stone cold Steve Austin with giant neighbours underneath wraps. That was pretty crazy. It's weird though to say that it felt like a close game because at halftime the pistons were leading by six and they still lost by twenty. And I I know know I. I know the blue route second half, but it felt close the bucks went on like a forty five to ten runner sums over some section of the game there in the second half. I mean, it was really Jaanus after halftime. He got out there. Lee shooting free throws like six minutes ago, and they have time clock still because he had struggled in the first half. And he attacked attacked attacked attacked pistons, vans and Blake in coach Casey, they're upset with the free throw discrepancy. They shot a lot more Janas shop way more than the entire pistons team wanting to twelve Jaanus verse the pistons from the live, I mean, just frustrated because I really couldn't get close to the box. No significantly inside. They're frustrated. They got the I think the longest streak now of most consecutive playoff loss. It has to do with my trivia question. It does it does. Yeah. Fourteen straight losses by the pistons. Which is weird. I think that's what it was, you know, d- winds on the side. And it's like man, we just this. There's nothing we can do he had even keep this game relatively close the bucks, which just too good. So it sort of frustrated, but Janos is going and so I just getting contact. Yeah. He does get some superstar calls. Yeah. We've been watching basketball longtime. Yeah, I'm okay with it. Because it's long and around the rim goes half the Khanna hidden to try to scupper in from just lying it up, Don King. So he's one of the stronger guys he can absorb it one on fun. The thought maker took charge on that one. I thought she was and that was that was called because I think that was the one where Casey quoted right yet tech. Yeah. But you're right. But again. Attack. That doesn't change anything is so weird. You saw the play where like the strategy is. I mean, I guess like backup off them and try and dare to shoot. But like Reggie Jackson. Just left him. Leave him. He'll be wide open. Let's see if he'll shoot it. And I was like now, you know, what's better? Just take one giant step at the defender Blake Griffin near the rim. Then I'll just euro around him because my legs were frequently long, and I'll just lay it in. That's a lot that makes more sense. Because exactly right. It's almost like giving them room is the worst strategy with him in get on a runway to the rim. And he's got great wingspan. He's got great leg span. So if you give them, you know, ten feet to figure out a move. He's going to figure out some way to get at least far enough away from you that you can't bother a shot, and he can still get it to the rim. I don't actually think Janas can dunk from the three point line. Not yet. I wouldn't be surprised if he does a finger all from the three point line like on a fast break, why not just, you know, run run run jump from the top of the key. He can float for fifteen shoot. Like a little George Gervin nine foot finger all that would still kind of three points. Right. Yeah. Why not try it? Awesome. He's gotta try that on a fastbreak washer the Dunkin what game to where he was like six inches in front of the free throw line. Maybe easy easy. Be jumps from that far away. It's not too hard of a shot. Yeah..

"Game eleven but that shows you younger mentality. It's a younger mentality of right? Well, then maybe I'm Ascott. He discussion asking do we have some video from the buck sideline reporter cagey, Katie, George, and she was showing fans leaving the arena early in the fourth. Well, that's not. That's not. I mean, but this is still fun video to see you can't blame fans. Right. I mean, they seen all they needed to on. The question though is with the warriors moving out of Oakland at the end of the season. Scotty, not Richard will the bucks play another game at oracle arena because they're already a little speculation of wait a minute. They could be jumping some other guys in Eastern Conference to premature about this. No, they won't be. To be on. This is is good that they feel that their confidence has arrive and they're playing some good basketball. But they're still probably thirty four best team in the east. So I mean, you still got to go through Balsam Toronto is playing great basketball right now. So you know, as good to feel good about yourself, especially when you go on these lone wisc coast road trips because you know, that's when you can really get your season tone around one way or another for the ball is it's been a great road trip for them in their confidences super this season. So I'm happy to see that. But expect to see them in in the postseason on west. Doing games with with me on. Time. I. We can have fun with this unless they're doing TV. We're going gonna see any bucks in oracle. Janice would be good for play-by-play. He would be great, especially because you can speak multiple languages. He can do it. You can broadcast across the world. But we honest will not be playing in oracle. So later today, the bucks general managers can be stopping by the studio to join us. We'll let you discuss those. Good for him. Coming up and addition John Horace being here later in the show. I last these guys if there is anyone better at on-court trolling than Chris Paul after his Baltic to the Reverend earned him back last night. But first here's our distant replay.

They wanted to like just give there. Everyone was happy. Someone asked this morning. If mellow was allergic to Oklahoma City, those pretty funny. I think that's pretty accurate pretty accurate. Hello, welcome to the job. I'm Rachel Nichols. Were in that Friday mood here a little couple NBA champs, Richard. You like that you can just sit next to Scotty, Pippin, Scottie, Pippen and be like. Yeah. Just a couple of MBA. I don't like to compare myself. He's got all of the champions. Rich. This make a catch law. Welcome back to you. And of course, got Mamer coming up. We're gonna talk about the expectations on Richard Jefferson's old college roommate at Arizona bear down Luke Walton are they fair he has some thoughts. But I it has become standard practice for warriors fans to remind each other to get to the Rena on time after all you want to catch the stars playing any night. There's a good chance that the team will so dominate. So thoroughly the biggest names we'll be sitting on the bench for the fourth quarter. And that's exactly what happened at oracle arena last night. Except for the first time in the Steve Kerr era the star sitting out the fourth because his team was so far ahead was not a warriors uniform. It was Jaanus Cuco. Thanks to the bucks running completely roughshod over the reigning champs. When it was all over Milwaukee had one by twenty three Yana said, quote, we've arrived, which was very dramatic. But also, maybe true after years of speculate. Nation after about this team potential and the years of the teams fans fretting over the coaching situation. The bucks train does indeed seem to at least be pulling up to contenders. Ville Milwaukee in just eleven games into the season. I love that train that looks so good. But he is our walk is already beaten, Golden State Toronto and Philadelphia and almost be Boston. That loss came down to the final seconds. Just as impressive is how the bucks have been doing it with smart and engaged defence, a structured offensive attack that encourages crazy ideas. Like, I don't know passing. And trusting each other Milwaukee now ranks second in the league in assists up from fourteenth last year. They're also second only behind Houston in how many of their points come from deep compared to last year when they were third from the bottom in that category. Still the books haven't fallen so in love with the three that they don't take advantage. When all that spacing opens up runway size lanes to the basket. Like last night, the bucks, absolutely mug. The warriors inside outscoring them eighty four to thirty four in the paint this from Eric Bledsoe. And John Hanson. Damn right, or we got honest because you know, we have to show this from you on us that is just mean, Andrea Mons green afterward as ING on. This is where we insert the Tory note that dream on was indeed sitting with the game out with the store. The anger of the warriors defense probably would have made some difference. If you've been on the court, and it should also be noted Steph curry left this game toward the end of the third quarter. MRI results would later show. It was a groin strain. But it's not like Steph was playing so well, even before he got hurt he missed all four of his report attempts and went five for fourteen overall look at blood, so he the rest of the bucks playing stiff physical all night. Chris Middleton should also get similar credit for the way that he stayed with K G really from start to finish. This was a big boy performance from the walkie a signature national TV wind decide designed to force the rest of the league to take notice and it did Jaanus on the bench and that fourth quarter sent all the message..

"So I forget who specifically to wrote this in the comment section, but they said books blow at the seventy Sixers on national TV but steps goes for fifty plus so the bucks don't get any headlines books. Crushed the raptors. But clay sets the NBA record for three. So the bucks don't get any headlines books. Destroy the warriors and the oracle but stuff gets hurt. So that's the lead story in the bucks won't get any headlines. Bad locked down with the bucks bucks. I mean are the bucks getting enough attention from the national media right now with the record being fantastic. And and picking up quality wins. I mean, these are good winds, obviously against seventy Sixers and Rapson and the warriors. They get enough love. I think so we talking bad and quite a bit. Yeah. Know, we're talking definitely how they have Chinese style. From the the Jason Kidd joke Bronte season, they want all that fun to watch. Now. I mean, there's a ton of threes. They just come down and just stop firing away. But you feel that they are trying to maximize Janas impact on the offensive end. Even though he's numbers as test mentioned kind of with I were lost season. It's still incredible still amazing twenty six thirteen six. You see? Feels like so many tons of game where he just has that open line where he can go inside and just sort of believes white pasta. He feels at times unstoppable. It's and there's been a lot of talk now with the way they're playing. I know you guys have seen this. I'm sure like on Twitter and articles about like should when you approach the bucks. Should you? Try like the whole Steve Nash approach and make Janas just flat out score. And like let him just try and go for his fifty and takeaway, everybody else, basically, the Nash like strategy at times, it was like, you know, he wants to pass he wants to get everybody going and they got much shooters around him. So make Steve the score. Can you do? Yes. I think so because there's. Because he's almost a foot taller than. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just going through guys. He doesn't have a shot. He really doesn't have a shot at this point. And he's shooting twenty five percent from three whatever it is something bad, but he just bullies through guys works either because he can get to the lot. Like, he he is a star you warrants. A lot of calls is strong as an ox so easy. You can take that you can initiate the contact and take the fell and he's a great free throw shooter. So like they were in Bodas quicken this one, right? The the bucks were it's like different strategies. It's not naturally have been doing that. I get the idea though of takeaway, Robin. Takeaway Middleton, you know, take away all these shooters. Maybe it is your best chance, but they're all capable dudes. I mean, they're all capable scores. I think you know, but deserves credit you can kind of see this year modern MBA coaches on Nick nurse in Toronto coach, bud. No more guys who can't really score all that much. Just try and spread it out with five guys as much fossil. And if you have to have one dunker, that's fine. But not too. There's. What you need you need to spread the floor as much as possible. And he's got it's got a bit of the hawks vibe. I think from the boot Knowles days, it's not just says going for thirty five and other guys scoring. It's Millsap Horford. Carol Korver Teague everybody can score when you have a system. Other guys. They're going to seed Pat Coniston had fifteen last night. Right. They had five guys in double figures. They wanna game without Janas playing because everybody has something to do. You. Don't just stand there and wait for something to happen like with what was happening with Jason Kidd and their space out there, and they say shoot a three man. We don't care. Yeah. Your coach has your back before the gave something you just we're talking to their tasks Steve Kerr talked about how successful buttonholes are is excuse me was with the hawks and like getting them to sixty wins..

"Bucks assistant coach and member of that two thousand one team Darvin ham will join us in about fifteen minutes at eight forty so your chance to catch up with the one of the fan favorites here back in the early two thousands in late nineties and now a key member. Mike boot and Holzer staff here with the bucks. So we took a couple of questions on the big guys and brook Lopez THAAD maker. How they've performed here and whether or not Thon maker should get some more minutes. So one of the things that we briefly brought up was the way that this bench has really transformed here under my boot and holds earned his first year. Last year the bucks score just under twenty eight points per game. They're bucks the buck's bench. Did I should say twenty eight points per game. Just under that number only the thunder and timber wolves scored less from their second unit. This year the twenty third in the league, which you may say well only up a couple of spots. Right, but thirty six points per game. So they're getting almost ten points per game more from the second unit, and the other thing to keep in mind is this when you have a starting five with Yohannes with Chris Middleton. You can throw Eric Bledsoe in there. I mean, you figure to get sixty points tonight from those three guys. Let's round out the rest of the starting five. We're talking about eighty to eighty five points that you're getting from your starters. How much of an opportunity is that Lee for your bench? So the tricky thing with bench scoring I think the kings led the league last year run around fifty is most of the time the teams towards the top are not going to be towards the top of the standings. But when you look at the impact that this team has as long as you're not towards the bottom of the plus minus is the other thing to really look at for the bench. The bucks struggled in those areas. Not just last year, but the past few years. Twenty seven points per game from their bench last year. Again, only the thunder and timber wolves were worse thirty six this year. But what really jumps out his last year the bench had a plus minus of negative one point eight. Meaning when you went to the second unit, you're getting out scored by at least two points the entire time that that bench was on the floor this year, it's plus three. So a five point turnaround. Meaning instead of giving up a portion of the leader leading the team chip away at the lead that the starters have built up the bucks are building upon that lead. And I think a big reason why is the way that we've seen this second unit used here. So far four one four seven nine nine one six twenty s the accurate mortgage, talk and text line can text in your thoughts interact with us on Twitter as well. Tweet him in at TM j Garcia, and we are on Facebook will take your comments there. Ersan ilyasova. Just over nine points just under seven rebounds a game. Dante David Chen zoo who we have to carve some time out for has been outstanding eight points a game four rebounds a game, basically, two rebounds, twenty three minutes from her son. Twenty one minutes from Dante John Henson is played very well here, averaging six points and seven rebounds in fifteen minutes and your guy. Tony Snell has been terrific to and that's one of the things, you know, coming into this season here in looking at the things that Mike Boone Holzer was hoping to accomplish. Spacing the floor playing defense and knocking down three point shots. It seemed like this was tailor made for Tony Snell. And he has been a much different guy. The first nine games this season than what we saw last year. Do I get to take credit for that? At all may have been saying for three years now three years. Perfect system. You've been saying the system was perfect for three years. Now, I've just you know, just Tony's now. But the system is perfect for Tony snow. This this bud system. Seven points, two rebounds game looks a lot more confident. We've seen aggressive. Tony snell. We're seeing Tony Snell taking the ball to the basket. He went baseline firmly. John Henson, go baseline. I mean, people are going to point to the three point shooting that you're getting from John Henson. He joked to couple of days ago when? Just after practice that look I've always been a three point shooter. Just go back to my first summer league with his team, but you see John Henson. There was a play yesterday against the kings were John Henson caught it on the baseline and drove all the way to the hoop and had a reverse layup. The biggest difference with the bench. So we gave you those four guys who have really been the key cogs in that bench and the offense production. You're getting from them. The minutes to how it's much more consistent this year consider this last year. Jabari parker. Played twenty eight games off the bench, Malcolm Brogdon, played twenty eight games off the bench Jafari average, just under thirteen points. Malcolm Brogdon average thirteen exactly that was basically all the production. You got from your second unit. No other player who played at least twenty five games last year off the bench averaged more than four point three points per game for the bucks last year. Can you guess who that player was if you followed us and bucks courtside on Facebook that we did before the kings game? You would know who was the bucks bench player last year who played twenty five or more games and averaged four point three points per game third best scoring average from the.
