Officials defend actions after migrant girl dies in custody

"Made the difficult journey through treacherous terrain. This is just a very sad example of the dangers of this charity, according to DHS customs and border patrol agents. Apprehended the girl and her father on December six at the antelope wells border port of entry in western New Mexico along with a group of migrants turning themselves in to the US agents. It was there that DHS says her father at first told border agents his daughter was in good health. It was noted on an English language intake form that the father signed. But he does not speak English. The father and daughter waited for hours before boarding. Rush to a nearby border station. DHS says on the way to Lord Burgh, New Mexico ninety five miles away the girl ran a high fever and started vomiting at one point. She stopped breathing agents revived her and called the head for emergency medical help just over an hour after reaching the border station. She was airlifted to providence children's hospital in El Paso, Texas, one hundred sixty miles away. Her father traveled there separately. The girl suffered cardiac arrest in the hospital was revived but did not recover. She died on the morning of December eight the coroner has not ruled on her cause of death this family chose to cross illegally. What happened here was they were ninety ninety miles away from where we could process them. We gave immediate care. We'll continue to look into the situation. But again, I cannot stress how dangerous this journey is. When migrants she used to come here illegally does administration take responsibility for a parent taking child on a trek through Mexico. To get to this country. No, not far from this hospital in El Paso, the group border network for human rights takes issue with the Trump administration blaming the girl's father. This is not the America that we believe that we used to believe I I mean, mean. the decision of the border these tuition is going to come in on the rest of our society. This is not what the Mary Kay. And Jake the department of homeland security inspector general says that it will launch an internal investigation into the death of this young girl in that the report will be made public, but critics are also wondering why it took DHS more than a week to talk about this case publicly and asking why took a news report to bring this story to light Jake.

"I really respect an honor him, and he could not win another championship. And I think well his impact on the game of basketball. I mean, especially through this day and age of social media scrutiny. He's clean slate. So Lakers with the Braun make the playoffs. Yeah. Of course. Eight seven. Oh, I mean, I had them at. I think I had them at five. Oh nice. Yeah. I think we're forgetting I mean, everybody looks at the Toronto game. Yeah. They lost the first quarter. They won every other court. Yeah. You're right. You're right. I was there. It was brutal. But yeah, you're right. Yeah. Because of the first quarter after that they picked it up. And so my thing is I'm not I'm not feast or famine not on the bandwagon off. I'm like, you gotta stay even keeled. Yeah. You can't get to hire you to my very first producer in TV told me that all right to that. And you may be happy this famine can't get too high to low Laker fans. So we're going to do give me. Best or no goat in BA of goat. NBA number one. I'm from Chicago. Okay. All right. So I should go home. Jack. I mean, Michael Jordan to me. Is the goat? Now. Lebron is extremely close sh- second and not. I think it's harder to be the first. And that's probably like if LeBron was first LeBron be the go. Yeah. Of course. But Michael is the one that kind of like set the bar, and I think it's the goat. Golden all aspects of changes the way the game is played at changed. What's on your feet? It changed the commercials. I mean, it changed everything it changed basketball. And so I think that that's the reason. I mean, it's nothing else. What is Alan Iverson to the culture of basketball? Alan Iverson is the reason why we're number three. Alan Iverson is the reason why. That appeal that. Hip hop street. Culture was allowed in basketball. It was shun for so long. And then I feel like he kind of opened the door to it. And I've been a huge Alan Iverson fan for his heart for energy for his effort was the smallest player on the court. And also just like the Toronto Blue play. No that will live in infamy. How he overdrawn Lou? And then all the memes after. Yeah. That was terrible. Anyway. And this will be the last of the quid pro your legacy. What would you like it to be? That's a really good question. I. I hope that if you could use one word, I hope it's transcendent because when I came into the game. I was told to stand by the basket and make layups and I'm leaving the game in their six four handling the break. Throwing no looks and shooting three. So for me. I hope I had something to do with that in the way that it's more position. Let's basketball and more just because you're six four doesn't mean you can't play point guard. I love you more. We're having we're having girl is Candace. Parker your elegant on and off the court trendsetter, so many ways most importantly phenomenal mother and just a leader. I'm gonna continue the love affair Candice. Parker is amazing. And I cannot wait to see what happens for her next chapter. I know she still has a lot of basketball left. But. I mean, just imagine all of that in one. And she's being able to make changes the way she is. Thank you so much to the podcast. We really appreciate it. Do me a favor head over to the.

"Because I think it's not all in all it's it's a great opportunity for us. Okay. See so I'm being split. I'm like dang leaving. I can't go to half. No sushi. His I understand. Okay. Yeah. Put me in perspective here Carey, I will say this. When I think about how hard you you, ladies work. I do respect it because I do appreciate a grind. But I look at you. And I watch you work and in my world, if you will doing what you do flawlessly, and I remember talking to you. When you first kind of like, I think I wanna not. Intern. And look at you now like, you're everywhere, you're doing it effortlessly. So obviously my next question. What is that next chapter? Look like for you Candace marker. It's about the journey. Right. So for me, I'm all ears all open. I've watched you. I always watch you and you've been a huge inspiration. And how you do things yourself. No, really. I mean this. So for me, I think I'm just trying to learn along the way I have kind of a grace period because I'm still within my versed field of being a professional athlete. So I'm kind of just figuring it out. I mean, I love TV. I love doing that. But I love the game basketball for me for the last twenty years while I won't say twenty I'll say eleven years of being paid to play basketball. Sure that's been the best job in the world and pay to play basketball. So what's next being paid to talk about basketball? And so I'm just kind of living that dream right now. I know that when I watch you on other networks shall remain nameless. I saw you like dropping buckets on people was like goals. Like, that's that's the beauty of being in this world sports broadcaster. Like, I I can literally as you talked about coach summit. I I walk the walk talk the talk you you do both. Do you find it difficult? I mean, and this is what I've noticed with athletes. They start coming on. It's hard to. Analyze their colleagues to talk about people. They're cool with what everybody it's easy for me to pop off about somebody you see them, but you have to see them. It's it's tough because I'm still a player. Yeah. So I understand the grind. So I just try to make it not personal that makes sense. So I think if I keep it not personal. I mean, then you can't. It's your all athletes. You understand that you're going to be critiqued? Everybody has to be coach. I don't believe athletes understand. They're going to be critiqued. They like it. There's not one athlete that. I haven't met that has not reminded me the day the moment the time in which I said something bad about them. Maybe like on November second nineteen ninety seven. I agree. I agree with you. But at the same time, I think there's people that can remember that. But then there's also an honest. Okay. And so I think if you're stating honest and not making it personal. Yeah. Which is don't make anything personal in whatever you do is going to be taken the wrong way. Of course. So that's what I try to do. Like, I don't think that was a great play. I'm not like always make plays like that. That's so stupid. Like that's personal. Okay. Wait. She just taught me something guys. Not they always I'll take that out of an Acura that wasn't a great play. There you go. Let's say Dubai could you better to that end? We gotta talk about my Lakers. All right. Let's let's not make it personal. But I'm a making personal. I do think it's unfair that the buzz is about Luke already about his job being on the line. But is fat. So when told me today, Paul Pierce said to me that if you have the Brown James on your team. Why wouldn't it be? It's weird because I think whether LeBron is coming or departing. I mean, look at Toronto Lou he departed it's tough with or without LeBron. And especially if LeBron is coming to your team like, I think all coaches should probably have a clause in there. Yeah. Look he roll up in here. We check with me before LeBron enters or leave. Do I get paid two years of four and two years after this added pressure with that? And and I mean, that's that comes with the territory and expectations. That's around him. This is he is a business in itself..

"I mean, we have one of the best leagues in the world to kind of model that after in the NBA. I mean, so to me, I think we have a big brother, which is, you know, it's good to have when you're you know, when you're trying to search for what you want to be like, and what you want to emulate. And so you know as young league. I mean, we forget we're twenty two years. Yeah. Yeah. You always put it in perspective or twenty two years. You're when I was eleven years old. I didn't have a WNBA New York around. And so I think that's that's what we have to focus on. But we also can't lose sight that we have to continuously improve it on the front lines. I like to the them from. Billie jean. He made Neka grew McKay is of course, the president. And her sister today is the vice president or doing phenomenal job. I just provide the one liners occasionally what What I mean. I mean by that is that when people think of the WNBA you can count on your hands. How many famous names there are how many famous faces? Yes. Eight and Neka are outstanding and extremely intelligent. And I and I love everything that they stand for. And they are also a part of this group of women that you recognize, but there's just a responsibility that you have when you are face of a league, it's a responsibility LeBron has that he doesn't want to necessarily always have a responsibility. But it's a responsibility that I'm brace. I mean, I don't think I've been off more than I can shoe. And I think I'm at this stage in my career where you know, I've basketball has given me a lot it's giving me this platform. And it's given me the experiences to understand that how I can be successful in this world to transition into other things, and I just want to make that experience better for other players coming in right? The next generation. Okay. Maybe knock on wood my daughter. Maybe maybe she'll cement clean. Yeah. Maybe she'll want play basketball. Yeah. We'll see coming up on the other side of the break. We'll have more with Candace Parker. And by the way, make sure you're subscribe to be honest in the ESPN app, apple podcasts or ever. He get your podcast gunk over since.

"What were you think, you know? I think there's influential and instrumental people in your life. Yeah. That if you didn't know them or weren't a part of their life. You wouldn't have certain things happening your life. And so I think that championship doesn't happen without coach. And so at that moment, I mean, Holly new coach summit, she's covered me mine tire career. She knew how much Coachman to me was rocking orange shoes. And I know she she was watching that game. So that game. The I remember you also mentioning that this was a surreal feeling and you thought I would love to have this feeling more often than not. And that's when I said, you had become a champion on every single level talk to me. About what it takes to have these goals because you've been number one number one this number crude number and trying to pick. And then here you are. And you're winning it at the highest level. You know, it's crazy because when you win it you have all these emotions, but then you won't more like it's like that that energy that human nature like when you have something you want it again. So soon as on the championship, and we went to the parade, and we did all that stuff. And we'd -ccomplish goal then it was like I I wanna do that again. Yeah. And so I think it's at that moment that in two thousand sixteen when we're going through the process of winning the championship going through the regular season. I realize it's like yes winning is super special journey getting to that point is what's important. I mean, and you have to go through all the ups and downs and your career and life and all that stuff to really appreciate the journey. And so right now, regardless of the results of the rest of my seasons or career whatever I just got to put in the time and the work in the energy, and then the results take care of themselves. Well, that's what I was talking about the struggle of having something and setting these goals, and is it too much requiring. Much myself for the people around me. I know that a lot of people watch the WNBA and think of two things one and we'll get to that. We'll get to the the pay disparity between the WNBA NBA. But I I've noticed and in those who played pay close attention notice that you all lead the charge when it comes to speaking out you and your colleagues in the WNBA had no problem talking about black lives matter, or when there was an incident in Charlottesville. You were very very honest about what you felt wasn't right. We have video here showing you all linking arms just to chew send a message. What do you what do you feel about athletes using their platform to talk about social injustice? I think it's super important because we are public figures, and regardless of whether you want to believe it or not your voice matters, and it carries weight, and I think for a long time, it was acceptable to just play basketball and not say anything. But now with all these different avenues of getting your voice in, you know, effecting change affecting people you have to use it, and especially I have a daughter, and I want this world to be better for her. So when there's different things in different topics that come up, I mean as a league, and the WB we represent everybody everything every nationally. Everywhere everything. Yeah. And so we understand that responsibility. I think we embrace it. Do you get nervous? Do you look at what happened with Colin Kaepernick and think let me take a beat let me not necessarily say exactly what I feel at all times because that could affect I mean, let's be on my money..

"Maybe people think Milwaukee takes a job, etcetera, Indiana. Who do you like. Coming out of the east and why? I've always been a Boston fan. And in fact, kyri Irving is my MVP pick for the season, a lot of underestimating what he's going to do in the east and with him being healthy. I mean, Boston is aria an amazing regular season team because they defend Brad Stevens, you know their core, but I have, I have Boston coming out of the east and I do have Toronto having a great regular season. I mean, they're, they're going to have a fantastic regular season in terms of record. But I just think in the playoff with the amount of experience that they got last year from getting to to the Eastern Conference finals, there's there's gonna be no answer for Boston, and plus that will make people in the city happy. But I think it's a think Boston is absolutely defacto favorite. We'll see how we'll see how Chiron Hayward play together. What Hayward back, our Candace Parker. As I said at the top, she has joined the NBA NBA TV should work as an analyst years already done studio work for the NCW tournament. She'll do that again. You'll be able to catch on the players only telecasts which have been pretty popular. You'll find that on NBC. TV and you will also see her again playing for the WNBA Los Angeles sparks and like sue bird. I expect her to play for the next ten to twenty years which which would be very good for basketball. Listen, Candace. I know your time is valuable, so I really appreciate you taking some time to do this, and I wish nothing but the best of luck on Turner. I think you're going to be good, and I think you're going to enjoy it. So thank you very much for joining me today on the sports media podcast. Thanks for having me on. I preach it.

"Her game is evolving. She's in the, you know, the prime of her career and you just have to put weapons around her that are going to be successful. So I think you know, I'm not. I'm not going far from from home. I'm going to stay with Ellie sparks, Chelsea gray. It's a hometown pick. Brianna. Stewart fans may be unhappy, but all right. That's all. But I mean, no three knows it's it's, you know, I'm sensitive. They won the championship this year. All right. This I think this will be interesting. You can put yourself in here on this one. Okay. I want your all time WNBA starting five, and you are welcome to go back to like the swoop zero if you want, or you can keep it current to today's players, but I need all time starting five. And if you could do positions a positional starting five, that'd be cooler. I'll maybe give you a little bit of leeway if you wanna go three guards, but position. I would start teasha mckerrow as my point guard. I was too tired dinosaur Rossi as my two. I would start Cynthia Cooper as my three. I would go, Lisa Lesley as my five, and then I'm gonna hold down the four position. Nice. All right. So teach Cynthia, Lisa. Yourself. That's a that's interesting teasha. I think younger WNBA fans have no idea how good she was both in heaven story about t- show when she was playing in college. My brother was at Bradley university and playing, yes, Anthony part. She was playing at my goodness. What school did she go to see them. Yes, use plain Old Dominion. Old Dominion was playing the Bradley girls Bradley women's team, and my brother went to see the game to cheer for the Bradley women's team with us and the entire time in the stand. Oh my God. What. The entire time we were just in awe, her passing ability and her ability to control the game, the tempo, everything. So it's been, you know, fun watching her play in, of course, who doesn't remember the Jason Williams in her commercials, like, you know, white chocolate with her doing spend past techno. So, yeah. All right. Final Candice. Quick college one as one of the famous lady vol's are you happy to see the Tennessee playing Yukon again, you might not be but are, but I think college basketball fans are happy to see that. No, I think I'm excited to. I mean, it's a rivalry that has been a part and kind of built women's basketball. You know, it's two of the top programs in women's basketball playing, I mean, North Carolina and Duke, or are that in the men's game and they play. I think it's only fitting that that we play, but I will add that we beat them the last two times and I dumped on their home court time. So I just wanted to throw that in to conversation. I mean, you know whether it's you catching Randall bird Toronto that rivalry never ends, which is great. It's good for good. Are Finally I want, I assume you would like everyone else in the world. You think the warriors are gonna win the west. Is that that's? Is that correct? So I can ask my question or or is that I'm like everybody else in the world. I think this is the last year I will go and say that, but I think that this is going to be an absolute dominant warriors team. I mean, I think this is this is their best puzzle if anybody who's going to beat them, they need to beat him last year with all the injuries and everything they had. But this year well, oiled machine, it's gonna be. It's gonna be trouble. I agree. So I'm I'm taping this Toronto. So I want to end with an Eastern Conference question because obviously that is to me the more interesting conference in terms of who's gonna get out of it. So when you have looked at the Eastern Conference between all the contenders, Boston, Philly, Toronto? Yeah..

"And so when this opportunity presented itself, it wasn't neat using, you know, not wanting to do WB or not. Women wanting to do women's basketball. It was me choosing MBA and I think I'm something it's something that I'm extremely passionate about, and I like to do stuff that hasn't been done before in just the way that I was raised in. What I try to strive to be is, you know when someone told me, you can't do this, you know, there's never been or there never will be that makes me wanna do at that much more. And so that just made this opportunity more intriguing to be a part of, you know, Turner, who I watched night in a night out, you know, to be. Part of that broadcast team, Kansas, you're well aware if you sort of live in the United States right now, there's a lot of sexism in the country that goes far beyond sports when it comes to basketball, there are still men who have an issue with women working in NBA broadcasting Dr Spurr probably gets for as much praise doors Burke at. She will tell you that if she occasionally checks for Twitter mentions, there's so much shit running down the pike. Jessica Mendoza is someone who has a very high profile position at ESPN in the booth and just gets a ton of criticism online. It's one thing to be criticized for performance. It's another thing to be criticized for gender and a lot of times both ours and Jessica face that I wonder if you have spoken to any high profile women in broadcasting to learn about what is like, sort of the underbelly of being a public figure in broadcast, and you're certainly going to get praised. But you also know. Especially if you go online, there's going to be a lot of people who are going to shit on you just because you're a woman. It's funny I, I was a part of a panel a couple of weeks ago with Jessica Mendoza, and we had a chance to talk and discuss, and you know, talk in front of, you know the audience and then you know, behind closed doors and you know, one thing, I don't think people understand about growing up in sports and playing sports and competing. Since you were young age and not wanting to lose, we're k- with being hated on our entire life. I mean, I've gone into stadiums of twenty five thousand booing fans in it. Just rows me up and makes me wanna be better. So I think for me when I'm looking at this opportunity to be a broadcaster, there's no way in life you're going to be able to please everybody. But I know when I when I start this career, I'm going to try to learn from the best and try to be the best that I can and not worry about everything else that I can't control. I mean with change, it's uncomfortable for some people. It's hard. You know it, it really is difficult. I mean, look at our country, look at what we've been through as a nation. It's difficult, but somebody somebody has to do it. And at this point I'm passionate about basketball and you know, for for everybody that doesn't like me, that's that's okay. That's their opinion. But I hope that we're kind of bringing change about how at least from the pre your previous experiences and obviously heading forward as you start this week, what will be your preparation and process to prepare to be on the air. Well, I I watch basketball to begin with, so I don't think the watching of it is the issue. But I think when you watch the casual fan, you kinda underestimate how much you have to know about the history of team, and I'm not talking about Golden State Warriors. Everybody knows the issue behind them. I'm bulls fans. I know what transactions trades all that stuff, but you know the up and coming teams. Why? You know, why does it land? Why do Linda hawks have a conditional first round pick? Is it to their benefit to win? Now, why are they trading their, you know, you have to kind of look in depth at those things.

"In the WNBA and Candace Parker joins us on the sports media podcast, Kansas. Thanks for taking the time today. Thanks for having me. You got. All right. So I want to start here. You're still playing you still one of the. I women's basketball players in the world. So why is this the right time to pursue broadcasting on what is basically a full-time basis outside of your playing career? Fortunately, you know, for the WNBA it's in the summer and you know, they look at that as our main season, but our main season is overseas. You know, I played ten years overseas. I've played in Russia. I've played in China played in Turkey and at this point in time when I was looking at the off-season, anybody that knows me knows my daughter comes first and every year since she's been born. I've had to up route her, you know, in some way, shape or form and take her to a foreign country. And this year it just, you know, it's about her, and I felt that at this point in my career, I'm able to make this choice to kind of transition into what I wanna do after you know the ball stops bouncing Georgia's Leyla. Is that right? I lay, yeah, nine years old. Her passport. Must be incredible given Bishop. She's had quite a few stamps in her passport quite a few visas. You know her first her first preschool was Russia was in Russia and. He learned the language pretty well. So it was very unique to see a, you know, a black kid speaking Russian. It's great world traveler at nine years old. All right. So if you can wh in terms of your Turner schedule, give us roughly what the schedule is from the start of October to win. You would theoretically go to WNBA training camp. Well, with Turner, I signed, you know, through two thousand nineteen. And you know, I'm very excited to be a part of this because last year I came on you, I came on after all star break and was able to cover some March men is. But this time I'm going gonna start, you know this, this coming weekend, you know, every Sunday and Monday. I'll be in studio with NBA.

"What is management told you about the future of the jump Rachel, inasmuch as you can talk about that publicly, both short-term and long-term, whether it's Jimmy Petar or Connor shell or whoever have they said, you know, we like what you're doing. We think you're doing a great job. We see this lasting for a number of years. Can you give me any just sort of insight into what they've said to you in terms of in terms of having. Yeah, we haven't had any big sort of planning conversation about how long the show would run all the only back we've ever gotten his been super positive, which is cool and something that may not always be the case. But boy, it's nice now that it's happening, you know the show, and that's that's easy to see why the show has been super well received both in the league office and among the teams and among NBA fans, and we're grateful for that or aware of that every day and we feel responsible to all those segments. And that's why we try to, you know, when you say it was a smart show, basketball shorts, foreign basketball show. We take that really seriously, right? We we, we try really hard to make sure that we're being honest and straightforward about what we put on the air and and responsible to those groups of people every day. So I think if it's been happy with that, I think fans in the ratings have continued to climb. I mean, we are show that when it started, we were on just during the season and the show did so well that they made it year round and then the show did so well that they made it from a half hour to an hour. So we haven't got. Some big sort of long-term ten year plan from the bosses on on what they see for the show. But certainly the way everyone has talked about it's us has been has been nothing but positive, and we're going to keep working to make sure that that continues one of spin. The last segment here with you on a couple of very high profile interviews that you've done and to try to get some insight into that. How did the Jimmy Butler interview come about. Jimmy, you know, I, I've been interviewing Jimmy off and on since his rookie year. This is one of the cool things for me and been having had so many jobs at this point of remain BA a been, you know everything from newspaper writer covering the NBA. I've been a sports reporter covering the NBA. I've been sideline reporter covering the NBA. I'm now the host of the show covering the NBA all throughout I, I've done these kind of big, sit down interviews, but I've also done small sort of those things that you do either on the court right after the game where you know the two people are standing there and you just do the quick three questions or maybe that way into the stadium or that kind of thing. So you know, I, I've sort of done all the different things which is giving me a really great layered relationship with a lot of people around the league. Jimmy, someone who, you know, I've had one of those great layered relationships with a bunch of different gigs I've had. And you know, certainly when things flared up with him this summer I checked in with him, hey, what's going on? And we talked and he kind of explained to me where he was coming from, and I think those kinds of. Conversations or was really important for me to have fister off the record, casual conversations with players and teams and executives. I try to do that a lot because I'm on TV for our day talking about these guys. So it's important to be that I've talked to them right if I'm gonna comment on Jimmy Butler and situation of Minnesota, I want to have had a conversation with Jimmy billers can understand at least a little more where he's coming from. I wanna talk to people and find out where management is coming from and sort of have the whole scope. So I do stuff like that all the time. And as we were talking and you know his situation, Minnesota dragged out and it was obvious. He was not in training camp..

"It is the men who offer the opinions. I mean, I just think it's it's sort of the wheels of progress, right? So it used to be. We all know this right used to be that there were no women involved in in sports reporting on TV to any real way. Then you had, you know, Hughes, scattered women on the sidelines, right? Then you had sort of been move into the studio in different worlds. Then you know it was a big breakthrough just have women hosts, a lot of these shows. Right. I mean, there was a time where that was considered heresy, then you had women hosting, but maybe again more in the what I like to call the Vanna white kind of okay guys with you think and, and by the way, that's not a job with a lot of skill. And I think that anyone who does that job by itself, male or female. She got a little bit more credit. It's kind of the way it was felt about silent reporting and you and I talked about this in the past. I me crazy when people are like, oh, well, they stick women in the five, my reporting jobs, and I said, okay, well, how they deal with women as a whole separate conversation. But let's not take shot at the sideline report. Jobs and and in the same breath moderating is a whole skill to people get paid a lot of money professionally to moderate panels and corporate gigs and things like that. So that's a whole job and a job that people can be good at or bad at it just wasn't at this point in my career, what I wanted to be doing and that's okay too. Progress fast enough in terms of the wheels of change, as you mentioned. I mean, I would say both across the country and in sports journalism and journalism in general, I think the people who would be the beneficiaries of that progress but always like it to be faster. But I do like to recognize the fact that progress is being made. I think personally, I think the little, you know, tonight even acknowledge the fact that things are better than they used to be is looking to get to us in the mouth a little bit enough. You're sure is not afraid to be smart, and I think you guys assume that your audience is bright enough to examine certain NBA topics. Who do you imagine as watching the jump. I think people who really love basketball watch the show, and fortunately it's why brains of people who fall into that. It might be someone who only watches games occasionally or is only familiar with sort of the surface is user players where it might be people who are hard core fans, but what's fun about knowing that the people who are watching people who like the game is that you can then talk to sort of most educated fan and have a conversation on that level and that people who aren't as educated, but still really love basketball are happy to go try to catch up, right. So I think where you get into a dangerous zone is if you're doing a more generalist sport show, you can have to cover a bunch of topics, and you might have a segment of that show where you're hitting a sport that just doesn't happen to be of interest to chunk of the people watching like they or someone who doesn't like baseball or pick them out of the whatever it is. I think if the careful about how you present those segments, because if you do get too nitty gritty, you can potentially just. Really turn some of those people off. I think in a show like the jumper, any sports this show if you just don't like basketball, if you just don't like the NBA, there's nothing I'm going to do. That's going to convince you to sit in and watch an MBA show every day for an hour, right? So so those people aren't watching. So therefore the only people watching or people who have a predisposition to want to like the game. And those people I think are excited if something comes up in conversation that either they don't know and get, you know, get a little more formation on or be sort of have to do a quick Google search or find out or look at their phone for a second. I think people like being challenged..

"I've said this before I loved being santee. I just loved it. I love the people most of all. I mean, they're just incredible fun, genuine smart people to work with. I love the system. I love being at the games. I was at a loved a lot of the opportunities to cross with Turner and the work I got to do on CNN and CNN international. So it was really happy there and was not intending to lease and had you know, mild sort of conversations with people, my old gig at ESPN the way you do where we'd love you back and I kept sort of being like, well, I'm I'm really happy where I am, and it wasn't until really coming into the last moment of of when I was going to resign and be with ENT again that John skipper and Connor shell and and Kevin wild came to me with, hey, we wanna. Daily show. We want you to host it and that was such a great opportunity and something that there really wasn't the real estate for at TNT with the way their programming hours work and baked into that, though, was it was really important to me that if I came and did this, it was going to be that I was going to be not a Vanna white character, right? Because any TV show like this, there's a real range and there's there's a lot of different variations. But all the way at one end of the spectrum is the host sort of interesting topic and then turned into what is usually the men on the set thing. So what do you guys think? Right? And I didn't wanna be in that position for a lot of reasons. Most of all that I've covered and been around the NBA for twenty years, and I've certainly earned as much of a right to an opinion as say, evac low or Jim urgency or Brian Horace or any of the guys were asked to do that on our air over Mona Charen. So. So you know, I wanted to make sure that baked into the show was more of a PC is style, or I take style, not in terms of the debate or I take, but I guess he has a better example that everybody on the show gives their opinion. So it's not like Tony is the host, and Mike is his opinion or Mike. The host and Tony gets his opinion. They both intro topics, but they also both in that intro, even often give their opinion and then certainly are part of the discussion going forward. And I think that's what we wanted to set up the whole time coming in to do. The show is important part of me agreeing to do the show. So it's never been a point of contention since then because you know it was part of the part of the the deal and what they genuinely wanted for me coming in. And that's the other side of the equation is it's not like I had to bully anyone into that that John skipper and Connor shell and Kevin, we're enthusiast about that and then makes you feel good when people value what you think you bring to the table before we continue on the job. I do wanna ask you this. 'cause I think your your bit of a pioneer here, why twenty eighteen do we still see so many studio shows where if there is a woman who is a regular full-time on that show, her job is to moderate or her job is to be in the middle of two men. As you said, either debating or opining, it is rare to see a woman in sports television in your position. There are some and Katie Nolan obviously host her own show on ESPN plus. But by and large, the setup still is if a woman is on a fulltime panel, it's the woman as the quote unquote host or moderator. And when it comes to the opinions or the opinion is Asian of the show..

They have a celebrity, barbershop. He's got Jon Stewart, he's got snoop. Got Michael Ben. And he got Candace Parker all this stuff. So we had Dell Beckham there and we have a clip of Odell Beckham. So LDL Beckham's there and he was making this point LeBron I really feel like zoo, like that's what life's going for me. You know, used to take your kids that zoo, and we used to be like, you know, I want. I want to see the lines. Let's go see the lions and you go out there in the lines laid out. You know what I mean? Like, why aren't they doing lion stuff? You know what I mean? Like I got people who town dance, and it's like to me that doesn't feel good, but it's like, damn, that's where life became. But can you ever really detach from that. It makes me feel sad. Oh, stop. Colin. Let me tell you something. The one thing that's probably the worst is to here at -letes making million dollars complain about celebrity. I think it's so overblown and the whole notion, wait a minute Odell. You mean the guy who's on Instagram and Twitter with your shirt off and and Jud dancing in clubs, and you're doing all these high end things that people see, and then you're shocked that people are interested in seeing you do those things talking. I don't think people walk up to Larry FitzGerald. No, they don't just plenty of players who don't live that lifestyle. And so people don't expect that from them. I'm not saying that all fans are great and nobody ever bothers you. I get all that. But to hear like players talk about complaining about signing autographs or Mout having dinner and how dare these people come up to me. But these are the same athletes who are tweeting show up. Blaze pizza. We got free pizza for everybody. So you want people to react when you want them to react, but you what you have some issue with them doing what you your big time star making millions of dollars. It's it's, this is what people do. If you don't want this life, you know what you could do collar, what go work at the post office and nobody who bother you. That wouldn't is Colin you route people see you, don't. They wanna come up. They listened to your show. Watch you every day you expect it. If no one approach to at the airport, I'd be singing be stone. I would. I would just I would cry on getting on my delta flight. I'd be crying. I need constant admiration or it's just my life stinks. No, I get people come up to me all the time and I just there my consumer. So of course she just deal with it. You just still with it's just a part of what you signed up for. Correct. That's all I just think at least complain. Sometimes it's too much. I would say Dow probably gets a little bit more attention than, oh, he just no way Odell Beckham in New York City. Walk down the street even with a baseball cap. I agree. But but would you say though that he's a little more out there?.
