"In those guys who were shooting around and you can't help but anytime Anthony did something, everybody would smile laugh. He just ferocious and funny as hell and you know what that is. His dog, right? Yeah, yeah. His dog has a Twitter account that Anthony Edwards runs and his dog's name is Anthony Edwards junior. That's right. That's right. And he's tweets about his dad. Yeah, he's got it, man. I think that guy these young dudes in the league now, there's so many good this was definitely the year of the youngster. This is where you just go, man, there's so many guys who are great right now. We're still watching a ton, right? Even when you're doing movies, I watch a lot. I watched a lot. I didn't get I haven't seen every game in the last. I saw the ending the other night with the Celtics and the heat. I saw the last quarter. I've been that kind of guy where I get to pick and choose. The family sometimes stares at me like, are you kidding me? How long are you going to sit here? It's not like your life where this is your living. This isn't my living. Watch an NBA and baseball games and stuff. My family's a little bit disgusted for me. My family is constantly discussed with me. Yeah, but you and it's a living excuse does not really work. It doesn't work. We hit these points in the sports schedule. Late April, where there's 8, 8 match ups going on in the first round, and it's just there's games every night. My wife's like, I hate this time of year. Does she watch with you? I saw her watching the hustle with you. She watched hustle. She was like, my family's very pro sander. I mean, I know you haven't done bad for yourself in life, but thank you. I think there's a rewatch ability, especially. Yeah, there's some of them that are just that just feels like they're going to live on and on. I mean, happy Gilmore and how old is happy going? I like 27 years. Exactly. It's been around. It's just going to keep going. It's like how we thought about caddyshack and some of those movies. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Bad news bears. Bad news bears, caddyshack and the longest yard slap shot that got me to. Did you watch your movies with your kids? When did your kids watch happy Gilmore?

"You need guys in the corner who can shoot. And that means loony probably can't be out there because that's going to clog things up. But Porter could. Porter could be out there. Obviously clay can be there. I also don't think they can play what's called the death pool lineup. I don't think they can play curry pool and clay together at the same time versus the length of the Celtics have. It's just not going to work on the other end. I talked to you today because we're talking about this series. Not out in podcasts. And I was getting more and more confident. Now, I'm not saying I was right. I'm just by thinking about this series, and it's one game. But I was getting more and more confident 'cause I kept thinking about that Memphis series. And I kept thinking about these stretches that Memphis would have where the link that they had in their wings, they just really bothered the warriors, right? And ja really lit up the words before he got hurt and I was just thinking like, could we be basically a better version of that Memphis team? That series went 6. I think it easily could have gone 7. And I think if jazz is healthy, they might even want it. And I think I don't think I don't think about this, could it be them? I think the Memphis Golden State series was a function of Golden State just didn't take them seriously. I mean, they had one game where they just threw the ball away 30 times. It was not so much what Memphis was doing. But there was some blueprint. There was some blueprint stuff with the size of their wings that I thought the Celtics could potentially replicate. I was not expecting the white prichard small cart combo to be the ones, but I thought white was so important, defensively. Smart one defensive player of the year and white was more important than a defensively in this game, by far. Yeah, I thought I thought smart. I mean, I think white had a good game defensively. I thought smart had a good game defensively to where he had a couple strips early. He was in once he was guarding draymond or Iguodala. He was in the lanes and that kind of had an impact where he didn't even really see it until you go back and watch the video. That is a rumor, yeah. Yeah, but I'm with you. I mean, white played good. I do think all that changes if now white hits his career average from three and they're playing off of him. And now because that's the thing that kind of happens now the men it's one thing to be banging in threes when you're making threes. What if you're missing four or 5 in a row, you saw that happen with some of the Dallas players or they missed a bunch in a row and they started hesitating. So that's one thing that it looks great when the shots are falling and then the offense can go, but I think Boston will trust their process..

"And Marcus smart. It's the backcourt. My first two multi defense. Those are still to me the standard for defensive guards. True was awesome. I'm with you on the ado thing. I wonder going forward my big questions. Where's Tatum in this next game? I thought they did some stuff to take them out and make them give up the ball. A lot of people missed open threes. I think they're gonna look back. They'll watch the tape of this and see how many open threes they had. And the number they made was 18 for 50, 36%. At least another what? 12 were completely wide open, that they gagged. So I think they're gonna look at that and Tatum in general, you know, Scott foster's out there. Scott foster was out there for game four nets Celtics. It became one of those things. They started not getting calls and the Celtics got pretty bitchy about the calls, you know? And you watched the bucks, the bucks were just like staring straight ahead. We've won the title. We know how this goes. We're not going to play the ref game. The Celtics got lost in the rough game. They've got to get out of that too. The reason you lost was because you weren't tough enough, you got to psych you out. You turn the ball over too much. You need to make enough open threes. And you got to be tougher in the next game. Udoka, I have confidence will be football coaching it these next two days, right? Because it's more of a football game than a basketball game now. For them the bucks. I would like to not see that group that started the fourth quarter together again to start others first. This season. No, no, no, no, no. Tonight, tonight. He went Pritchard Jalen white rob and grant. And that was up until the 9 minute mark. And they ended up, you know, I don't know. Yeah, it's tough. Exactly where I was in my notes here, but you just watching an offensively going what's the plan? Where are the options? To start the fourth quarter, they were O 5 from three. I think Pritchard had taken four of those and missed all four of those as well. I know grant Williams wanted to give him a pep talk. We want to talk him up big time in the huddle there. I don't know if anybody said. I love that. I don't think his teammates were super into it either. By the way, this might not be the series for him totally. He played 29 minutes today, tice played four. I think they either have to match the size of Milwaukee or go the other way and go smaller and play Tatum and try to, to me, I didn't feel like they, how many times did they attack portus in this game? Milwaukee is able to hide portus in a way you should not be able to hide him on defense like he was hit today. No. I don't think jaylen, if Jalen's healthy, okay, if smart isn't, you know, I don't know. I thought rob Williams was like tore his groin and apparently it was that he just got kicked in the nuts. Yeah, I guess it was just so bad. That might actually been don't make this a ring or social Dylan. That might have been a kick in the dick instead of the balls, and if you get kicked in the dick and the right way, it actually,.

"They smacked. The box scores can be so deceiving. Drew is 25 9 and 5, three steals. That's a good game. On a box for I thought he was even better than that. I thought he was dominant. And I thought he was playing. I thought the whole bucks team. You know, we just heard for the last 6 days. Including on this podcast, the Celtics are in the driver's seat, no Middleton. Game 7 at home, Milwaukee gave that away. All step I said. The team today was like the BuzzFeed we saw today was one of those. This is why we're the fucking champs game. There's that great story and breaks in the game, which I always mentioned when the year after they win the title, the 77 blazers. Don't spoil it. It's a prequel to winning time. Then Lloyd Neil, they beat the shit out of somebody. I think it was the Lakers. And then the locker room after Lloyd Newell was like, that's why we're fucking champs. And so, you know, when you win a title, you get a lot of residue from that. And you also, you know, every once in a while, you get annoyed when you get discounted. All they did was beat the bulls in 5, right? They, they lingered all year, they basically the same record as the Celtics, and then they lost Middleton and people like me are like, yep, they're done. Celtics are going to beat them. And I think I thought Giannis, especially Giannis, the scary thing to me, he was 24, 13 and 12. It felt like he has a whole other level to go. There's a version of today's game where he also had 42 points. You know, I thought he was missing shots that he normally. I thought, they defended him well. Like those Wilford replays where they were showing him. I mean, he's 9 of 25. They did a really good job against him. He only took 11 free throws. He started missing those again. So that's something else to track. But it's Giannis playmaking. And it's not just the passing. It's not just the gravity that Giannis is. You're freaked out. As soon as he's coming over half court, he's got any kind of momentum, you're like, all right, this is probably going to suck. And now he's whipping it out like, you know, I don't know if it's Dončić prime hardened ISO Houston stuff. We're art and felt like he was a wizard with it, you know, but you also, over time, like with Dončić, when you know where guys are supposed to be positioned, I mean, hell, it happened with a play with ja today where he was engulfed. He disappeared. I couldn't see him in the bodies. And he threw a pass behind his back to the right corner, and it's because these guys know, hey, don't move. That's why when you see somebody throw it out of bounds and the guy's off, they'll get pissed at the player and perimeter being like, don't move. And Giannis has all that stuff down. And then which I've dug into before and I should share this on the pod. I looked at his shot chart stuff in the mid range from last year to this Rick. It's two different players. It's fucking crazy. Was that breakthrough he had in the playoffs last year? The Celtics get slapped around and Giannis didn't even have to go nuclear on him and I thought they held up pretty well defensively because I mean the guy's going to get 30 and 15 doing nothing but it's also the part of how he's impacting the rest of the stuff without him even being a shooting threat, which is kind of insane. And one last thing too, you mentioned drew when he knocks smart, he knocked the shit out of him. Backwards and smart didn't get the charge call. And if you flop all the time like smart does, I'm not going to give you the benefit of the doubt there. That was also, I think, another drew moment where he was like, look at this. You can't even, you can't even hang with me. I'm going to knock you over. So I don't know. I don't know if it means Boston's completely out of their league. I would like to think that a team that showed us that they were mentally tough, last three months. I think you don't have that time out. This wasn't even misses. Do you remember the time out after just kind of bring that up to you? He was so fucking pissed. Well, I was going to tell you what he's because they were just awful for like a three minute stretch and he calls the time out after the last mistake and he goes, yo, what the fuck man? Now I love him. It was weird when they weren't winning. So what does this guy do? Just yell at everybody and see you keep doing things wrong, but it's funny because if he had been around, we'd go, oh, that's it. He's coaching him up. He's coaching him hard. And then we're constantly talking about how NBA coaches don't want to give the players a hard time and they all have to be pushovers to make sure they don't offend anybody. And you don't just like, immediately going, he just wants to be like, hey, can we call a timeout to talk about stupid you've been for three minutes? I've discussed it time out. I voted drew first team all defense. I did not vote Yana's first team all defense. I couldn't put two bucks on there because their defense as a whole just wasn't that good. Not by the standards. Yeah, I just can't put two bucks. So then I had bridges, jaren Jackson and bam. And smart and drew. And I know there was some metrics that were to talk about Fred van vliet's better than you think defensively and stuff like that. I was just like, I'm riding with drew Holliday.

"To figure out, all right, they're going to pressure us 94 feet. We're going to do this. They're going to play port us that much with the two big guys. We'll do this. They're going to have things. The two things that alarm me is the health of smart and health Brown. Where the Celtics were the healthiest, most athletic team in the playoffs. Everybody's lost somebody including the bucks to lose Middleton, which should have been the Celtics big advantage. Brown was abominable in this game. I think that was one of the worst games I've ever seen him play. On both ends, I thought he was absolutely terrified. He had 7 turnovers. He was basically two for 11 until he made two shots at the tail end after the game was done. He just didn't know it didn't seem like he knew what he wanted to do ever. He just seemed combination out of it and then when he tried to get into it, couldn't stay out of his own way. He was just bad. And this is a team without Middleton. He should have a huge matchup. Thing on. And then smart was bad too. Smart was one for 6 from three. They were delighted that he was going to take those. I thought his ball hand thought drew was really, really, really, really, really, really messing with him. And almost like he couldn't keep drew off him. And then he had two different injuries. And he clearly had something going on with his leg because he just wasn't moving around the same way. And then he heard his shoulder too. I don't know if that was a stinger. But they showed him limping off at the end. I don't know what happened. I don't know what that injury was. But if he's going to be compromised, then Derek white is going to have to step up and Derek white looks terrified. Half the time. So they traded a lot for Derek white and if smart's not going to be a 100% Derek white has to step up. That's why you made that trade. So I gave up your first round pick. You gave up Richardson, who I think would have helped them in this series. And he gave up that pick swap. It's got to be, I got to feel like your shots are going in, dude. I don't feel like there's his shots are going in. No, he came right off the bench and missed two immediately again. There was a couple moments here a little bit later. But he made it open threes later, yeah. Right. Jalen is the key to the series for the Boston side of this, because as we talk about everybody keep it two with your best player, which is what we're going to see with Tatum. Sometimes like Giannis is going to start attainment. It was the Matthews, and he's going to beat on you. He's going to get physical. They're going to send you to help. Two are going to stay there. And that's where we've seen at times where Jalen can absolutely go off because he's kind of single coverage the rest of the way or sometimes even a four on three advantage. So he has to make you pay. And he will make another unless he's totally hurt here with the hamstring thing. At some point he's going to make you pay, but he also can get really sloppy with the basketball. He just can't. I was texted about it with you a couple of weeks ago. I feel like jaylen doesn't get enough credit for how just incredibly bad he can be at passing the basketball time. Whole net series. The first three quarters that every nets game, he was football was all over the place. But he does so many other things good that you're like, all right, okay, fine, you know, some of the high volume guys can turn it over a little bit. But I mean, if you look at the line, Jalen 12 9 and four, four, 13 shooting and 7 turnovers, that's actually that looks way better than what it was watching it. So if he's smart as her and you're right, Boston has to the most part of the Williams thing, but then coming into game one here, no minutes restrictions on the pregame stuff. And this is really lined up for Boston. No Middleton, right? Philadelphia is dealing with their stuff. I don't know if Miami thought so little of Atlanta. They were like, hey, why don't you just rest butler to and Lowry in a little experiment? Yeah. Let's just do that. Oh, and we're going to beat you anyway. You've got the Booker issue. Golden State feels healthy. Memphis is a bit. I mean, look, at least on the east side of things, you're going, this is really lining up for Boston. And for them to get pushed around like this. And we knew there was going to be three points available from them, okay? Because Milwaukee allows opponents to shoot almost 41 threes a game. It's most of the NBA. And it's kind of their game plan. But they don't really defend it all that well. Because they're 19th and opponents percentage from 3.36%. And if you look at which is kind of a waste of the time, some of the advanced stuff through the first round of the playoffs, it's also match up dependent and Milwaukee has not been since the all star break, some great defensive team. There were 20th and defense. And so even though those numbers are really good in the first round, they were playing the bulls who may be including the playing teams, the worst team of the 20, not the 16th. They barely had a 5 that they could even put out the floor in a playoff game against Milwaukee. So Milwaukee maybe they just, you know, sometimes it happens with drew holiday too. I'll see regular season games. I go, where's he at? Defensively. And then you watch a game where he's pissed, or it's a perimeter guy, and the way he just wears you out, but stays upright and stays in front of you. It's exhausting, just to try to bring the ball up against that guy. So maybe Milwaukee, 'cause the Chicago thing I couldn't even tell what it meant because the bulls are so bad, but maybe this is even without Middleton the wake-up call for Boston who thought they took care of what still feels like a talented Brooklyn.

"In this game, which was one off the record. They took a shitload of threes. And it seemed like Milwaukee's game plan was, we're just not letting you get layups and shots in the paint. We don't care how many threes you shoot. Keep shooting them. Good luck. Godspeed. And if you start making a bunch, maybe we'll switch what we're doing. But they weren't making a bunch, and they could never get over the hump. And Milwaukee dominated them. And bully bought them. And I'm going to be really interested to see how the Celtics responding game too, because that was the first time they got smacked around in a game like that in a while. And this was back and all that stuff. I was very, very, very surprising. That was like a football team that got their ass kicked physically today. Yeah. Which they just kicked Brooklyn's ass. You know, in those four games where they were just more athletic, more physical, tougher, the rim. And Milwaukee flipped it on them. And all of a sudden, the Celtics looked like a finesse team. And so the big thing I thought they did. I know you took a ton of notes. And you could tell from the first play. No, you like to take notes when you watch these games. From the first play, they started hounding smart up the court. And it was clear. It was like if smarts bringing the ball up, Derek white, Jayson Tatum, you're going to have 94 feet of pressure. We don't respect any of the ball handlers on this team. And I don't think, I think they have pretty good reason. The cells are a little sloppy with the ball handling, right? They don't have like the tiny Archibald mo cheeks kind of person who just takes care of the ball. And if anything, it goes the other way and all of a sudden passes are hitting arms and people are dribbling balls up their foot. I think Milwaukee was just ratcheting up the pressure. That was one thing. The other thing was drew today it felt a little personal with him in Marcus smart, the Celtics in general. Where it's like, oh, Marcus smart is the best offensive garden rig. Drew was dominant in this game. He was the second best player in the game other than Giannis. And completely torched the Boston guards. So that's what those are my big takeaways. If we stand the defensive player of the year thing for just a second. Yeah. I don't feel like recalling every single vote here from the regular season because it's regular season award and it's the same as the people who are obsessing over the jokic and beat stuff the entire time where it's like, you know what though? I actually had you on a second. Because of today, when you watch a game like today, to me it feels absurd to think that Marcus smart's defensive impact is even close to what Yanis is capable of. Fair. Now it's a regular season award. Doesn't mean doesn't mean he shouldn't have won it, but there's a reason why guards don't win it. Because what Giannis was doing to anybody who thought they beat the initial resistance defensively. And then it's like, oh, cool. I broke down the perimeter and now it's Giannis. Awesome. And the Celtics did not get the memo on that in the first half. There was a stretch where grant Williams was like, I got this shit. And I'm not saying he was clearing people out. But he ended up trying to go one on one at the rim against Giannis, horrifying to watch. The next play, Tatum tried to get tice, where it's that kind of pocket thing where the two state with you on the side and then you hear the big is sort of the trail cutter and you're hoping to get it to him. I mean, Hardin loves this pass and he'll throw it no matter what, you should go to somebody's feet half the time. But actually almost all the perimeter guys in the league love this past now. And I couldn't tell it was a bad pass or it was on tight not necessarily catching it. And then you had a prey Pritchard dribble like into a three. Catch and shoot one thing won't dribble walk up, okay? He was like, dribble dribble like, all right, I got this. And I'm thinking, what the hell? What is going on with you guys? As bad as the whole thing was and is alarming as it might be, even without Middleton that Giannis is going to be so much better than everybody else in the world, specifically this series too. That may be bossy can't really do anything. Boston's defense wasn't really the problem, you know? I actually looked at the first quarter Bill going, wait, Milwaukee's up. This is a really scary sign for Boston because I didn't think Milwaukee played all that great. Yeah. So as I kind of put it all together, again, one game, one game, game one can be sometimes the most misleading of all the games in a series. I think there's a lot of alarming stuff that happened with Boston offensively. Here where it's like, you guys get to figure it out. Because the threes are going to be there for you. I want to get to a stat a little bit later. I don't want to keep rambling on.

"Thinks he's the best player in the team? Really? Guys, I've got this. Yeah. We're down to clear out. I don't know. Do you remember when Derek rose went out and there was that of John Lucas and it was like in his face was like Kobe face and he's like, I got this. Beverly had about 8 of those in that series. There's a bunch of times where it's like, oh, you're going to be doing this? You're taking over? You Raven guys out? You're very harsh on Minnesota. I feel like I thought that was egregious. The blown lead things, I'm not telling you you're wrong, but I think they made it. Yeah, look, I think Memphis is a better basketball team by all indications and they have more options and all this stuff. I don't think it's a coaching thing necessarily. And I have a little bit of, you know, some of the town stuff that I've worried about over the years too. I think we're on the same page with that, but I look at a franchise going. We can't, we can't skip through 7 chapters here and go from massive disappointment to what's your finals closing lineup, I just think, you know, you tweak it a little bit more and give Edwards the keys, extend this curve, you tell me, start coming home at one. You can say that, but all I know is I'm in the row closer to the front on the Edwards bandwagon now than you are. I'm already worried about the final sign up with him 7 years from now and you're like three rows back trying to get some air. I'm going, who does he know? I love the a rod piece of this. I tweeted, I didn't tweet a lot during that series, but I love the fact that a rod was involved in NBA history where the first team ever to blow three double digit fourth quarter leads in the same playoff series. Ever in the history of basketball happened in that series in a rod was involved like he was in 2004. Beautiful stuff. You know what reminded me of because the three zero Yankees thing I still think is it talked about enough. And that I had a manager that was a huge Yankees fan back in Bristol. And he, every now and then he would be like, coming to the studio. And if I'm in the studio an hour before showtime, it's usually like, all right, you know, don't go in there.

"But I think we crossed that hump. We got to play offs there. Have you ever been Minnesota fan? We got a playoff series. We have a foundation guy now in Edwards, which we have not had since KG in the late 90s, a young guy that we can definitively say, this guy can be the best guy on a really, really, really good team. So all my decisions are based on that. And if I were them Russell's got one year left that you got to figure that out. And then I think next year is really the town's audition for what's this going to look like? Because ostensibly should be hitting the prime of his career, right? It's a year 8 for him. Kind of are who you are after your honor. No, he should be. He should be. And that's where some of the all NBA stuff gets really weird because you're like, I voted him third team all NBA. I did too. You know, and there wasn't really much of an argument around it. But then it was good. He had a good season. He was 24 and ten, and that team was successful. Against that, right? And the same thing is to try young thing. The Trae Young series ended up kind of going the way that, I mean, it was even worse probably than I thought it would be. But at the same time, it's like, I don't regret voting in third team all NBA, but there's ways you have to find a way to impact playoff games where all winning plays are not just scoring and getting a block here or there rebounding. It's staying locked in the entire time and it felt like the front the first two guys in Russell and towns are maybe in Edward's way a little bit, but look, they all collectively screwed it up. I mean, Edward screwed up the defensive inbound against John the other day too. Right. Yeah, he's 20. He's trying to make a flight. He screwed it up. He left him off the I mean, he's on the opposite side. The difference in towns and Giannis is Giannis had that dumbfound, the salt that gained today when he got his fourth valley at 2000 really quick in a row. The fourth one was against Tatum, like 35 feet from the basket. He's trying to make a hero boss stale, bumped into him. He knew it was stupid. And he came out, but it's like, come on, dude, and you could just see Giannis was like, that was stupid. I'm not going to do that again. If towns had done that, he would have bitched at the ref for three minutes. About, I can't believe you called that. Even though I bowled the guy over, 35 feet from the basket. And he would have been caught up in the call. I'm starting a new segment, Russo. This is called beers with Ryan. Where you get to go out with a beer from somebody we're talking about. Today you're going out for a beer with Chris Finch, the Timberwolves coach. He's down in the bay. Swansea get together for an hour. Talk about the team. What's your opener with Chris? What do you say? After you guys order, you're drinking some suds. Well, I actually, we had a book for the show and then it got canceled. And I've been dying to ask him about that Denver regular season game where they were screaming, stay home, stay home, stay home. And I think it was Victorian prince and he didn't, and then jokic kicked it out, hit a wide open three. And they were exasperated. I don't think that'd be the most important question, but I just loved it so much because you could hear everything going on from the Timberwolves broadcast or excuse me from the Timberwolves bench during the Denver broadcast or maybe it was the other way around and forget. And it was hilarious to me. I rewound it so many times because they said, stay home, and it sounded like they said CC, but maybe they met TP. Okay, that wouldn't be the best opener. I think the opener would be, hey, is it kind of tough when pat Beverly.

"I know everybody's like, look, it's threes. Anybody can come back. This was not that. This was not just the team coming back, but coming back in a really quick time frame where they were down 13 and all of a sudden the game was tied. And you could see the Minnesota team. Just doing the dumbest shit possible over and over and over again, capping off with that game 6, where it was like, that was a winnable game. All of a sudden Townsend shooting 30 footers, pat Beverly's doing step back corner threes, they're leaving just guys wide open all over the place. So I left that series going. Was that good for Memphis? Was it good to play a team that like, what if Memphis isn't that good? What if Minnesota was so disheveled? That were overrated Memphis. And I think Memphis settled that and gave one. I thought they played the same way. I think ultimately you almost throw that round one away because Minnesota is so weird. But I don't think there, did you feel like there were any effects from that series? Can you have effects from playing a series like that with such a weird outcome? It's such a weird opponent. So what are you saying? Are you saying that you left it going, maybe they're not even tested and they're in trouble. I'm not going. I don't know if Memphis is good. Yeah, okay. Because I almost felt like if you gave the blame chart of who lost who lost her, who won that series, even though Memphis made a ton of big shots and the offensive rebounding, I get all of it, but I just felt like Minnesota blew that series in a really, really unique way. Like I haven't seen a team that collectively dumb over and over again in moments, like in a long time. Like you're going back to some of those Sacramento teams in early 2000s, the Portland teams in the early 90s, the Washington teams in the mid 2000s, these talented teams that just can't stay out of their own way. That was definitely Minnesota on top of Russell, I don't even what do you do with Russell at this point? D'angelo Russell. Can he come back? Can you bring him back after that? Okay, before I get to the Russell thing because I do think it's worth a couple minutes on it. I thought that actually it was just a good sign for two very young teams. Because at this point, Memphis has nothing as they have no playoff resume whatsoever. And they were a really good team this year and we know they went 22 without jaw. But I think early on, we all liked watching this team. They played with a ton of energy. They weren't scared of anybody, the defensive stuff was pretty good. I know jock can be seen as a liability a little bit, which is fine. A lot of point guards have that problem. And I think they're very connected. And they're deep and they have options. It just looked like a team that was like, you know what's fun is a Memphis on. And everybody likes a coach, because he's good. So then you take that and it's almost like Minnesota's Memphis light. Where Minnesota's a team with nothing. Track record wise with this group. You know, we kind of thought, oh, towns, you know, and then we didn't even realize how special Anthony Edwards was going to be as an important pick. I know you and I both don't like Russell. I think that we're very our positions are strong with that take. So for me, I felt like it was a positive that Minnesota was in this and was in a fight and they go, okay, we're too young and we don't know how to close. We tested their own blood a couple times. Yeah, so I looked at it as an overall positive with two teams that just needed to get their feet wet in this. I don't know if that was a positive for Minnesota. I have a hard time coming out of that and thinking other than Edwards and Vanderbilt and McGraw McDaniels. McDaniels too. And McDaniels. So there's four. Who else do I feel like? I know I want around Edward's long term. So you're not even saying towns. I would get look, to me, the number one town. I don't know if I can get there with towns. This is year 7 for him. I don't know if I can get there. I don't know if he ends up on that team because eventually they're going to choose Edwards, right? It might even be next year. This will be Edward's team at some point in the next two years. And then he got to figure out an awesome number two. Can he be a completely overqualified number three? But you're making all your decisions based on Edwards, I think. It's like, do you want to, can we win a title of towns is one of our best too? When a title? Check. With Edwards, I'm making my decisions based on how do I build a championship team around this guy? Yeah. Well, I would get D'angelo Russell as far as fucking possible away from him. So that would be we agree on that. That's move number one. Right. I mean, they benched him. At the end of game 6. And that is the all time sign for 6 minutes. 6 minutes, man. As I'm going up, he did it. He finally did it. I mean, as I've said about Russell, he does the really hard things well. And he does all the easy shit as poorly as any major minutes guy in the league. And it's maybe not as atrocious statistically as it used to be when there was an argument to be said. I think last year when he was the single worst impactful player or lack of impact or negative impact player in the entire NBA of guys that were getting regularly 30 plus minutes. And then we saw it again. He just floats. He doesn't box out. He doesn't pay attention to assignments, defensively. He just is completely doing his own thing because the up fake and shot is there and then he's got some kind of cool passing off these drives that there's these little flashes of the talent and you're like, oh, that was kind of nice. But you're basically just getting in the way of Edwards. You're getting in the way of him being like, you know, you're still trying to play this game because he's two years in and it's sort of been dangerous. Russell's team. And when I had Jim Peterson, who does the broadcast, the key was effusive in his praise about how D'angelo is really stepped it up this year and he's been better defensively, which I think the numbers bear it out, but there was always this lingering thing with me with him going, all right, we'll see. And it was a disaster against Memphis. So I look at Minnesota's history here. The fact that they were competitive, that they fought even if they blew the leads. It's like, okay, now we know what it's like to not close. We get to figure some other things out. If towns is a two though, then that's actually good, right? Well, I don't think he could be in the top two of a team that's actually in the finals. I'm not even talking about the finals right now. I'm talking about a Minnesota franchise that hasn't had very much room for and really long time..

"Good quarterback and then you go, well, what about that game when he fumbled in the fourth quarter? And what about that game when he threw three picks? And at some point you are who you are. He has so much trouble staying on the court. But what some of the stuff they did today with them where they spread the four for him and he's like point forward all of a sudden beating looting off the dribble, getting like 8 footers. You see stuff like that. And the three point range sometimes sometimes it's like Horford where it's just like this incoming grenade straight line that you know immediately it's not going then other times it looks beautiful. It's got great hands. I think his defense is up there with just about anybody around the rim. I'm mostly a fan. He's also really young, isn't he's like, I think he's still on 22. So you think like he's two years younger than every patriots draft pick this year. So you think of him that way. That took a lot longer. A lot of people I think the over under pat's draft jokes is 7 minutes. It's a two part pot. I got more coming. I'm mostly in. What about you? What are you suspicious of? You have a suspicious look on your face. That he looks at times to be a guy offensively this disappearing. Yeah, for somebody who's like the next young stud and by the way, this game is the first time in NBA history and be a playoff history. We had three guys 22 or younger score 30 points in the playoff game. Jaren Jackson and Poole. But the good part when it's rolling for Jackson, you go, all right, I get it. I mean, this is somebody before we wonder how healthy is going to be plays 11 games last season. I think the defensive player of the year stuff is totally legitimate for him because he's so versatile. And when he's at the rim, it's on. I mean that guy's incredible altering shots and his effort through it all, but if you start to go, hey ja and jaren Jackson, this is the next great one two punch in the NBA because that's what you hope for. Yeah, right. At that part of the conversation around those two, maybe irrelevant to whatever it is for the season. But that's the part where in some of the Minnesota games I'm like, man, am I too soft on this guy? Am I not? Do I sort of put him in the background of some of the guys who are like, well, these are the expectations that these are the ways you're talking about and how you're getting paid, then shouldn't it be a little bit more and then he has a game like today where those drives and part of that's also Golden State sizing down and maybe loony at the time not being the most resistant against the Rand Merc draymond got over or whatever. But some of those drives are just unstoppable. And then he's also 6 to 8 from three, made his free throw. So the fact that you have somebody in place like this that also is so versatile defensively is great, but I do think there are times where it's probably a little below what your expectations are for him based on the way he's projected out. I mean, he was 6 for 9 from three today. That's probably not happening again in this playoff series. No, and he was letting it fly on a couple of those pills. There's a couple there was a stretch there in the third quarter. He was like, all right, and then you're thinking, okay, what are they doing wrong defensively? I'm like, I don't know, are they supposed to step up to them? On him walking into a 27 footer? Are they supposed to be closing out on are they supposed to be prepared off a screen or some action? Make sure you're contesting Jared Jackson for 27 feet. And make that go ahead. I was doing research for the pod over the weekend thinking what a ridiculous series that Memphis, Minnesota series was trying to figure out if that was good or bad from Memphis. Because you figure in a weird way in the game today, they had so much confidence, even they're down for late against Golden State, but you could tell they thought they were going to come back and win the game. You build that up. In the previous series, but I went through the stats. From the last series, some Minnesota wins game one,.

"But both of these teams, I think they're loaded. Yeah, and Melton was out of the meditation in the first round. It's a couple of huge threes. He's really good defensively. There's just a lot of switching that I think we'll see. It looked like Golden State wanted to go zone with Gary Payton assigned a job to open this thing. It looked like a couple zone possessions in there. I know they had a few later on. And then they were just like, go ahead, John, take these wide open threes, how poorly he shot it. I think whatever it's the second half of the season, the first round, and they were fine with it. Don't you think they'll build that, whatever the outcome was for tonight. And we get caught up with them at like one game of evidence of this stuff that if the Golden State Warriors go with the small stuff again, there's probably a game where they get destroyed on the boards. It's just going to happen. Yeah, especially they were, they made enough threes today. You know, Memphis wasn't getting some of the transition stuff they usually get. It seems this is verno as always said this. Like the half court teams are the ones that give Memphis the most trouble. And if you're going to try to run with them, they enjoy that. They're like, please, let's run. So I thought Golden State did a good job of seeming athletic seeming active, but kind of making sure the horse didn't get away and all of a sudden years, oh God. Oh my God, we're riding around. I don't think you want to do that with Memphis. So I thought they had good control. And this was a one 17 one 16 game. That I feel like these two teams could be in the one 30s with one of these playoff games, right? Like if you really just say fuck it and try to go back and forth with these guys. John finished 34 ten and 9 today. Did you feel like it was that kind of game? Is you're watching it because I did not. I thought he was good. I didn't think he was like spectacular or anything. Till the end. I have a new thing that I'm working on, but what's that? It may be a little outdated on the NFL side, but that is, you know, we always talk about balance, right? You gotta be able to run the football a little bit. It used to be what it is now. It's like if you run your stupid. But I still think most football teams would like the idea that you still have to kind of pretend you're defending two different versions of what a team could do on offense, right? So when I look at the stars and some are legit stars and others are just talked about as stars. I think that balance is then becoming playmakers at some point. And Tatum did it this year, right? Tatum kind of took that step in the middle of the season where it was like, okay, now I'm starting to figure some of this stuff out. I think ja is right up there. I mean, he can get a little wild every now and then, but he pretty much has it down. Like they're going to try to build this almost Giannis type wall against you, however they're defending you. And even if they switch it, the guy, the original defender kind of still leans towards you. And that doesn't look as exciting as prime jaw stuff, but him making the right reads and right plays and kicking it out to other guys. So and he also got up to a hot scoring start, so maybe the number feels high because he was hitting everything to start the game. But I don't know, I thought he was I thought he was really good, you know? I thought during the last series, he, by the end of that series, looked like full fledged jaw. And the reason I mentioned the 34 ten 9, I do think he has a better game than him for him in this series probably than that. It's like a pretty typical just really athletic. He hit some shots kind of game. He has that thing when he goes to his left and ends up with like these super fully coordinated lefty layup. Where he's going at the guy and just his arm wraps around and all of a sudden he has this easy layup and you're watching it going, that didn't seem like a lefty layup was happening on that play like a half a second ago and now he's making lefty layup. There's so few guys I could remember in the history of basketball that I've watched that have that shot. I think weirdly Westbrook had it, but a little closer to the rim, but he had it. I'm trying to think who else. Oh, Kyrie. Kyrie have those where he would always end up with a perfectly formed layup and you're like, how did he get his body contorted that way? But it's my favorite jazz thing other than the dunks on people is how he is always able to get these perfectly formed layups from these contorted weird angles. And his body always ends up in the right place. Really, really unique player. Yeah, Kyrie always feels like the release point. Like he shows it to you takes it away and then comes in around and he knows exactly what he's doing in that moment. Where jaw it's maybe more visually impressive because he can he's going so fast. He's going so fast and they stop and then he goes up and then he like loops it around almost like it's not a George gerb and finger roll, but it's these these looping releases off to the side where you think like how the hell is he getting the ball off at this angle with his arms fully extended in one direction or the other. And then it looks like everything stops and he still hasn't quite decided what he wants to do to you yet. Yeah and that's the part where you just feel helpless because he's got this hang time and created..

"This is kind of what I thought. Yeah, we're not overreacting to that. We're reacting with no suppress. And when we talk Celtics bucks later, there's little things where I go, well, if that happens, and you can do it with every one of these series, like you could sit there from the Memphis side and go, well, draymond got kicked out and jaren Jackson's on fire. That's like one of the best games I've ever seen from that dude. And kept you honest from three and Steph had foul trouble and that's a bad loss. But I know you can do that and find a way to argue whether it was a bad loss, not a big deal loss. There's always these little elements. I thought the most surprising part of it was that rebounding wise what looked like a bad strategy with the small lineups. I thought auto Porter fixed some of it. I thought loonies minutes are really good and then when they went small again, which led to the Brandon Clark inbound play that was brilliant by the emphasize of it because you're like, all right, they're undersized. They don't have any rim protection or anything. You're like, are they going to lose this game with a small lineup? The rebounding effort from adjustments from Golden State and from their smaller players. They ended up plus three in rebounds in this game. And I don't know if that's going to happen again. But I kind of feel that way that you do. Like I look at this series going, I think we're just going to have to buckle up for 7 of these. Not to do the thing where the board announcer just grabs the stat sheet and looks at some stats and rattles up some numbers and calls it a SportsCenter segment. But the stats are really similar in this game. They both had 16 offensive rebounds. Memphis made 16 threes Golden State made 14. Gold state had 31 assists Memphis had 26. I just felt like there were a lot of similarities all over the place. And the big wild card was the Jackson just having a game like that, which I got to say, this series is a great matchup for him. I think I could see that thing happening again. The thing from Memphis was just Brooks and bay in both sucked. 6 for 23 combined. And I thought those guys were going to be good in this series. Now, if you're looking at it for the warrior side, they survive a game without draymond. On the other hand, I thought their offense was pretty interesting without draymond, was something where was there stuff jumping out with the movement and when they had all those shooters out there and you couldn't just lay off draymond and pack the paint and do some of this stuff that teams do it. I didn't mind it. I also was surprised by the communicable minutes. I didn't think he was a liability for them. I thought he was okay and he was so athletic. I didn't mind having him out there. What did you see? I want to make a quick commitment point that could be lost because it feels insignificant. But here he is. He's not really part of the rotation, but you thought at some point because it's Golden State's going to have to make up some sort of front line on the fly here. Not adding another veteran center because they want to develop wiseman is a mistake. It just is. It's a front office that doesn't make sense. Yeah, go get like Robin Lopez anybody. I don't understand it and we'll see. Maybe it burns him. You know, I thought it burned Phoenix a little bit last year. I thought that was one of their problems and maybe that'll be the reason why Golden State can't pull this off. Meaning bigger picture stuff. I got a loose ball off a defensive board and draymond is like, give me the ball. Let me bring it up and comming immediately like points out. There's a trail defender on you. I've got it. I'll bring it up. And I know it's like a simple little thing, but there'd be so many other rookie like, hey, just go into Memphis on the road, man in a huge spot and give us some quality minutes. The fact that he was that aware, and I know some people would listen to this and think, that's so obvious, it's not the big video. I actually don't think it's that obvious. I think it was most guys who'd have been like, here you go, draymond. No, no, we're good. I got this. Let me bring this thing up. So he plays, which is crazy when he watched before the draft. He plays smart minutes. Maybe he doesn't hit his shots. You know, maybe he'll miss a but for the most part, I think he plays smart minutes and that's what I like about Kerr and some of the other coaches, obviously, I think Jenkins is great too, is that they're not afraid to tinker, where some guys in the playoffs are so afraid of doing it because then I think it welcomes in a lot of second guessing. I agree. Come inga additive. And I thought I was wondering what Golden State strategy would be going into this series. I actually thought we would see B Liza. We didn't. We didn't see tuscano Anderson either except for the tell tale end. It seemed like they were just going for speed and athleticism. And they must have been worried about what they saw in that Minnesota series from Memphis, just how freaking athletic they are. And especially the offensive rebounding, which.

Gary Payton playing out of nowhere. What was the biggest thing they jumped out to you? Probably the Jordan pool national coming out party. We've been talking about them now for a few months. I had them as most improved player I don't care about the awards. It's not that big of a deal. As you watched him progress and he had some really good things about him last year, but as you watched him this year, you go, whatever ceiling I had for him, I have to just get rid of it. We have to start remodeling because he is that special. And it's not just this Jordan Clarkson come off the bench. He made some passes in the second half and late the decision making, the defensive option that he gives you because it looked like they abandoned paint at some point. So there's a million different directions we can go here, but I thought a lot of people probably watching pool today going, oh, all right, because of this kind of audience. 38 minutes for him today. 12 for 20. 5 threes. The big thing with him is he going to be a liability out there and especially gets his Memphis lineup, but I didn't feel like he was a liability. There were some major, major small ball stuff going on at various points. Curry was great. I felt dumb about having Tatum above curry when I did my top 5 best players alive right now, 'cause this is the kind of game where it's just like, you know what it's nice, it's nice to have Steph Curry.

They're in the mix for a few years. And they wanted 2008. That was the only one they won. But everything was worth it, 'cause that's the whole point when the title. If you're the Lakers, the point is to win the title. But when you actually look at the last 12 years and the amount of draft picks, they use just to get LeBron and Davis, and all the ones going into New Orleans. We're talking about a decade of assets that they gave up basically for this one bubble season title that by the way, their fans didn't even get to enjoy it because there were no fans at the games. But this is all, you know, going back from really that Nash Howard season, which how awful that disappointed that season was everybody's hurt, Kobe tears as Achilles right at the end of it. Dwight Howard leaves, the Nash trade doesn't work out. That's multiple picks plus buying them. Then they hit rock bottom. They draft rando. He breaks his leg immediately. They draft the Angelo Russell. He doesn't really work out. They draft Ingram second they get the second pick to following year. They take Lonzo over Tatum. They use, they let Randall leave, they trade Russell away to open up cap space because they had blown it on a 140 million of mos Goff and dang. So you run through all these picks just to get LeBron. Now you have to make LeBron happy. You make this Davis trade in these picks go on until 2025 and I guess my question for you is they won the title, I feel like it was all worth it, but it's weird to say like you basically have had one good season out of the last ten and the next 5 are looking probably not awesome. So was it worth it? So it's Ingram, it's Lonzo, it's heart in a move that moves some picks around there. It's the pick that was Deandre hunter. Wait, wait, hold that hold that thought. Okay. It was the pick that was Deandre hunter, but Darius Garland was the pick right after that. That's right. He went 5th 104. So you could argue that was, let's say they wanted to take arlen there, just for fun. I don't know. Do you think they would he's a clutch? He was a clutch guy. So you think the Lakers would have taken him? Ingram, Lonzo, Darius Garland, and then multiple first round picks and swaps. Joshua. For Davis. It's a lot. I felt like. I know you did. And it was unprotected in a swap in 2023. And then 2024 is unprotected and they added a Griffin ad. Love when these guys because I would just love to know on the phone when you go. All right, we've got the deal. We're getting these players and we're getting these picks and they're unprotected and I'm throwing in a swap. And oh, by the way, if I don't like the 2024 draft, can I just have it be unprotected the next year? Right. And that's what they have. And so to be fair, though, there was a lot of do they have enough to get Anthony Davis in comparison to other people when it was happening at the time. I feel like we can't be too revisionist history saying like they got ripped off because Anthony Davis at his best is a top 5 player in this league. He is no worse than top ten if you don't we want to push back on my top 5 fine. He's no worse than top ten. He still not 30. I think he turns 29 this week, yeah. And it's a mess this season. But to win a title, which is what it's all about to hand the keys over to an agency for LeBron and have LeBron. There's a lot that goes into this that feels gross and it feels like holy shit. We're giving up a decade of assets. When you frame it that way, it makes me at least process wait. Is this actually the wrong way to do it? But knowing they already have a title in their back pocket, I can't say they did it wrong. There's plenty of other teams to try to do crazy shit. I mean, think about what the clippers will have given up. And how much they've actually gotten out of Kawhi and Paul George. Right. And had them both extend max those guys. And they still don't play. I'm going to give the listeners the timeline really quick. They win the 2010 title. Next year, they lose to Dallas, they get swept Phil Jackson leaves. Winter 2011, the CP three trade gets vetoed. Right? That's a.

"8 hope and why or text hope and why in New York? Tennessee redline is 808 8 9 9 7 8 9 and in West Virginia. 1800 gamma dot net. All right, Golden State. So I went to the Lakers Golden State game on Saturday night. LeBron was unbelievable, 56 points. It was like a quiet 56. It was one of those you look up, you're like, God, he's got 24? I didn't realize he had that many. And he just kept going and kept going and kept going. I mean, who knows what that Laker team? I don't know. We're going to talk about them a little bit later. We've got state though. 16 and 14 since January 1st, they looked like a mess in person. I don't know what's up with clay. Clay looked pretty good before the all star break looked like he was the arrow was pointing up. And then since the all star break, I was sitting with house because house was here. We were kind of struck by how skinny clay looked and just that he doesn't seem like the sky who could guard like every kind of perimeter guy before he got hurt a couple times. Just seemed like a skinnier and more of a finesse guy. But the big takeaway for me was the lack of draymond. And I think with draymond, we default to the defense. You know, and you think like, oh, they're missing draymond and his defense. I think they miss us offense just as much because they don't really have a point guard. You watch them. It's like 6 shooting guards and kevon Looney and but there's no kind of straw that stirs the drink. That I could see because, you know, people think curry is a point guard. He's really not. He's better off the ball. And he's, you know, he dribbles the ball up, but really he's a two guard. They really miss draymond's playmaking. And it left me thinking we're so low. As where does the sounds is draymond short term more indispensable than Steph? Because I feel like they have so many guards that replace 80% of staff scoring. But they literally can not replace what draymond does. In any way, there's nobody that they have. So at the very least, I feel like he's just as indispensable That's a pretty big statement. Thank you. I'm not ready to go there. There are a lot of numbers that would back up what you said. They were 28 and 6 with draymond. They're 13 and 12 without them. They're two and 8 in their last ten. If you look at their defensive splits, you go January to February, so the month of January. And you know, this is still draymond's last game was January 9th. So they still held up somewhat defensively for the second half of the month in those games. They were third defensively. And since February 1st, they've absolutely fallen apart their 23rd defensive rating. They've also Porter fell off a cliff, and that's why he was available. And it wasn't available. Wiggins, how about these Wiggins numbers? He's made 9 free throws since February 1st. And he doesn't even get to the free throw line. I mean, people will look back and say, Wiggins started in the All-Star Game. Like what happened? What happened there? And that was because just Gobert got screwed in the vote. Damian Lee is out of the rotation. Be Elise is out of the rotation. So there's a bunch of other size Iguodala's place that I think 6 minutes. And beginning of the year he's fresh, he looks good, and I was like, wow, this is great. I think he's played about 6 minutes since January 20th. So everything's kind of falling apart collectively, but I thought last night was a perfect example because I was at the game. The clippers game on Thursday, and I was like, is LeBron slowing down a little bit? And then I look up, you've got like 20 at the half. I go, okay, I feel stupid. And then I was going to kind of focus in on again on Saturday game. I still think defensively what draymond does, because they don't really have anything else. Like they couldn't keep loony in the Lakers game. So I mean, I just wasn't going to happen. And to not have wiseman to not be able to pick up any other thing, this is a team that I think is just beaten up and I also think Steph is exhausted from all the stuff that he does on offense and the fact that every team sells out against him to do whatever they can. And then clay, who shot it really well last month, I agree with you. Seeing it up close, he just isn't moving great, and they were hunting him out in that Lakers game. LeBron was trying to get clay switched on to him, which is not usually something you never went clay hunting when he was healthy defensively. I was bummed out by clay yesterday and so I know he was sick after the all star break. I'm not writing him off by any means, but this was a guy who was one of the best offensive guys. Yeah. From what I saw yesterday, you know, this might be a long haul. He hasn't played in two and a half years before last month. And on top of it, is redundant to a lot of other guys they have. And I think the biggest takeaway I had yesterday watching them was just it's just a lot of jump shots. You mentioned the free throws. Nobody gets to the free throw line and the whole team. If you're just looking at all the guys yesterday, curry's probably the only guy who even averages more than four free throw attempts. He's.

Mothering Ourselves With Oprah’s Life Coach Iyanla Vanzant

"Did you have to learn how to mother yourself because lost your mother you that had to be part of it. Tell me a little more about that. Well like i said the mother. The purpose of mothering is to nourish to teach to beautify. That's what mothers do. That's what mothering is. I mean we nourish our children whether we're breastfeeding bottle feeding. We nurtured them. Meaning we provide them with the environment. The tools skills that allow them to grow in full. We teach everything from eating to walking to potty training to how to use the correct fork at the table and then the beautification. I think is just how we teach and demonstrate to our children how to present in the world to present in a space on environment and because i was raised in a kind of disjointed dysfunctional environment. I didn't know how do any of that so my first step was to teach myself. I had to noce myself in nourish myself. I had to teach myself so many things about being a woman about being a mother. Let me say an. And in the teaching i had to unlearn so many things that have been passed on to me. That were self denying dysfunctional. D harmonizing you. You name it. So i had to unlearn and then teach myself how to do so many things. I knew how to cook a knew how to wash clothes knew how to clean a house. I didn't know how to honor my feelings at didn't know how to ask but what i wanted. I didn't know that. What i thought and celt mattered mattered own that it was to be a priority in my life so learning those things and being able to do it. And as a way of nourishing and nurturing myself a took probably twenty years of my life. So i think many mama's lose that you know we we we don't get it

"You just put them. If you had a computer simulate them on the next. I just don't feel like it makes really any difference. So i don't why am i paying six times as much for zoa. Don't get it not to mention. He's never healthy. He's been healthy couple years in a row. Now i mean so. Hopefully you know for them. Stay to relatively relatively healthy last year. But he wasn't like one hundred percent healthy. Yeah i've been nixon. I don't have a knicks fan in my who is like man. We gotta get noelle back adjust. I don't care what happens off season as long as we get oil back. Nobody said that. I don't love it for the contract value. That's why had him on my list to solid big but ten million annually. It seems to me like that's more like somebody that you're signing for that dollar amount with the hopes of a year or a couple of months or maybe two years of using that player in a trade same thing forty. That's why i couldn't have a on this list. Because even though he's making a lot of money and he too much for his caliber of player the knicks are making some of these moves so they have tradeable deals in the ten or twenty million dollar range easy to put them together like puzzle pieces to get something bigger. Do we think there's a team option for year. Three for these deals because another one that was on my list was derrick rose for forty three million for three years. I thought that was stupefying. He showed last year. He was really good for them. But there's a specific minute number that he can play right. He's he can played twenty five twenty six minutes a game as soon as they up that number in the atlanta series because they had to he completely apart so he's twelve minutes a half. Maybe ten minutes i half fifty minutes second-half but as a lot of miles on it. He's a two thousand eight draft guy. He's had multiple surgeries. and that was just. I don't know who they were competing against with that. Who else was giving him. Forty three million dollars. I thought that was bizarre. Maybe chicago i mean if they wanted to have a homecoming But i had. I hadn't heard anything clear other than the knicks for derrick rose. Very strange i the foreign the four nature Signing was not on my list. But i was a little better. I don't i would have been mad at. The celtics did that. But i could understand. Why the knicks data right. They needed some sort of perimeter guy. Who could handle and move the ball and create his own shot at least a little bit because last year. They just had to many of the bullock types. But they didn't have that one guy who could at least like if a play broke down seven seconds left in a shack could try to create something which is something he can do. And i think with the celtics just never saw him you know he got cove it immediately and we just never right for them. He's fine. i think it's a it's a tiny bit pricey for him. But that one didn't make gas the way the noel contract and even the rose contracted Who do you have least favorite. What's your next devante graham. Four years forty seven million dollars at the pelicans and a sign and trade. I mean they had to give a pick up to get him Hornets fans couldn't stand him at certain points last season. Not just because he was playing ahead lamelo ball but because he's a six foot guard who wasn't getting stops on defense can't score inside the arc. He's a good not great three point shooter and it just feels to me just like an option c. For the pelicans assign him. And i mean he's not a bad player by any means but The ingram and that roster need better the point guard position than what devante graham can provide. So that's one of my least favorites. Well the one that pushes out went over. The top is that they gave protected. I top of it. That's protected i for lonzo. I'm with you. i didn't like that one either. My my next one. Was norman powell. Portland brought him back. Ninety million for five. Oh you didn't like that one Ninety billion dollars. Norman powell now. I did not dollars dollars to sure come on. Robertson duncan robinson. There's room for him to keep getting better like a young guy who i could see. There's some sort of arc within. Norman powell kind of is what he is and they brought him last year and made no no difference at all and they got bounced in the playoffs. So they're doubling down on that. Now i i just who's paying him they. It all goes back to me and it's like who are you. Competing against for ninety million five years from norman. Powell seems panic at really pretty sure. The knicks ma. Maybe some other teams for after i mean. He's only twenty twenty-eight next year not like he's thirty two. I'm not saying he'll get dramatically better but he's a good shooter in any attack. Closeouts do a little bit off the dribble for you. Good defensive player. i don't i don't mind it necessarily eighteen million dollars annual as and isn't that bad and also i mean like who you bidding against but what other option do you have. If you're the blazers. Just let them walk. After you gave up gary transform and you know bring back a rodney hood. I don't know. I i don't you have gary trent at three hundred fifty four. Or how for ninety. Five powell i'll lean slightly because of the defense factor and because You look at what portland's doing it's pretty clear to me that they're building up a stable of wings and guards which is gonna make cj mccollum way more expendable. My thing is. i'm not going eighteen million and up an anybody. Unless i think they can be an actual difference maker. I think with these teams get in trouble..

"Did a massive amount of drugs. You look great. You're all fired up you peaking at the red type. This is actually my clone bill. Yeah the clone interesting. I wanted to do with care. See lots of lots of stuff happened. I gotta say not the craziest bridge that we've had There's been movement. Things have happened but You know as far as quote unquote crazy fridge sagoes. I don't feel like we really got this one. There was some things though. So i have ten questions. I only told you. Two of them. And i wanted to go through them. Ten lingering questions. I have after forty eight hours First one is the bulls so the bulls get lonzo liked about. They got lonzo in a good deal. I can't believe they didn't give up any real assets for him they give up sadder and skiing temple and not even i pick was like a second rounder And then today they go all in get the. Marta rose in a guy who we didn't know what his market was. It ends up being eighty five million for three years. They have to send thad young alameda new and a future. First all the way back to the spurs so they can overpay tomorrow. Rosen you like this more than i did. I did not like this move. I thought it was a huge overpay. I don't understand who they are bidding against. I don't understand why you want him. Anzac levine on the same team. But you like it more than i did. What did you like about it. I like i like it more than you do in the sense. What other choice do you have to try and build a competitive playoff roster around zach levine. Because if you do nothing. He's going to walk next year. Or you're in a position where you just have to trade him. And i know you're not the biggest act levine fan. But there's no doubt about his abilities as a twenty seven points per game scores still in his mid twenties. Still getting better. Every year showed progress as a playmaker defender last year. So would the bulls. You're not gonna get a lot of stops on defense defense is gonna stink this year but their offense is going to be really really good bill. It's going to be a really good offence. And i feel like the marta rosen's progress and development that happened in san antonio kind of flew under the radar because it was the spurs and they were passed twenty iran. Dunkin's gone and everything. But the rosen became a really good passer like he's going to be the point guard of this team. He's going to be the point guard in the half court one. Most leagues most efficient isolation scores of very good pick and roll playmaker and score. I think it balances out their offense and helps alleviate some of the shot creation off lean. And i think you're also gonna see some three guard. Lineups billy donovan. Did it in. Okay see with chris. Paul schroeder and gildas alexander gonna do it again here in chicago. With ball to rosen in levin. And they're going to score a heck of a lot of points and at least compete for top spot in the playoffs. Even though they're not a contender. I think they have the widest range of any eastern jacket. See them in the rates scenario with a couple of injuries to other teams. Get into the three seat. I could also see them barely getting into the plans In maybe them being an eleven seat. I think it's a nine seed swing for them. But you mentioned levin. They had you know they could have extended levin and give him a pretty big extension Which i you know. They had the leverage of being able to jump at by year. and i. i'm a big fan. That i was a year ago with him. I don't think he's a top twelve guy. I don't think it's the top fifteen guy. I do think he could be one of the guys on a religious team. But i just wonder like so for the people listening right. Now they're starting five would be lonzo. Derozen levin patrick lamps who we both like get a boost. Vich and patrick. Lambs is in the classic. Only shooting six times a game garden. Neither teams best guiral lonzo really fun to play with. The times. said they can use the rose and the half court Coming off the bench. It's basically kobe. Wait in alex russo. Right now we don't know what's going to happen with market so they have guard depth. They don't really have any size they don't really have like that rebounding slash rim-protector guy and it still seems like there's some work left in. I guess it would be. The marketing would be radio proving. But i also don't know who the teams are is everybody's running at a cap space but I really liked the lawns of moods. I let fat young on this team last year. And i do wonder like. Are they better off keeping their assets keeping that kind of seeing what they have with that young and making the moves down the road versus going all in right away. I mean i understand. The slow play could have made sense. I think if you had levin sign long-term maybe you would have done that. But this bowls team has stunk for four or five years now and i still look at their team and they're still young levinas young they add lonzo ball who still young. Patrick williams is going to only be twenty years old this season. It's not like right there in a position where they don't have young guys around their best player. They have a lot of good young players. In fact they also have some good veterans. And i think. I mean with the bowls. They're in an interesting spot. Because like you said. I agree with you. There range is wide like up two or three seed and maybe their defense is so bad and if their offenses underwhelming light it was by the way with rooch in levin their offense was not great. I it wasn't firing off. All cylinders like people expected when they first acquired him. If it underwhelms yeah. They could be a plan team or on the plane bubble but i still look at the bulls and you. This has kinda bet. On patrick williams. Because they're going to be in a position where they're going to be in the playoff on in the east and patrick williams continues ascending. Every single year of his career becomes six-foot-seven versatile shock creator. Who could defend multiple positions. Suddenly you look. You insert that into the bulls and it changes the way. You're viewing them in two or three years so like i'm looking at what they're doing today as maybe a preview of how they want to build a couple of years from now i love that guy. He's really good. I lay out many minutes by last year for what is age was in the defensive assignments he had. I'm all in on that guy. The the big thing for me with them. What is levin gonna get outta this olympic experience. And is he going to have the bump that we've seen some guys have when these guys that are kind of a level below where they end up a year. Later after they've been on the olympics they always seem to have the career year just from being around the other guys picking up some work at the stuff that confidence of just kind of belonging. I don't know how much stimulus watch international basketball junkie levin spin really important to this team. I think the shocking things for me about team. Usa is being being used kind of sometimes as the as defensive stopper or yeah In a two-way guy. That's one shocker. In to is kind of how ill-equipped dane is for some of these international basketball matchups..

Five twenty where she goes deep on covid nineteen and some of the things that we should be thinking about just a ton of really good content. Check those out if you haven't already. But she founded paintcare labs in two thousand six to eliminate unnecessary pain. She invented fiber cool. Vibrational cryotherapy for tendonitis and to decrease opioid use and her buzzy device as blocked needle pain for over thirty five million procedures. This is key and what we're going to talk about today around. Kovic vaccination after yale and emory medical school trained in pediatrics. Child abuse and emergency pediatrics.

There and the relevance today sarah sure will you know for anybody who's here before the story thus far was that i invented a device that used mechanical vibration to block needle pain got a grant for it found founded. It also decreased other pain. Kinda did some work with needle. Fear needle pain and founded. Americans really didn't care that much. So that's why did the ted talks. That's why did the techs is to raise awareness of the fact that the way we are vaccinated kids causes adults to stay afraid of needles. But because i've got this company in this product i moved on to vibrate wall opioid stuff and all of a sudden needle. Pain is relevant again. Yeah well it is and It's a big deal today because we've got to vaccines available as of now. We've got one more coming with jay and more and more people are getting the vaccine. Many are not and so talk to us a little bit about your research love to hear more about it and how it is impacting people's willingness to get vaccinated sure. Well the go thing is that. I've actually been asked to testify or the art celts. New and services on needle. Fear and needle pain. It had never been an issue before enter. Probably wouldn't have been an issue if the strains of covid nineteen stayed the way they were if the are not if that transmissibility number was at two or even two point five we only would of needed sixty percent of the population to be vaccinated with the v. One one seven with the south african variants all of a sudden. Now you're talking about needing seventy percent seventy five percent of the relation to vaccinated the issue with that is it. Twenty percent of people said they're not getting a vaccine anyway know-how and this means that you need to start working on those people that may get one that not get the second one said. That's where all the sudden it became important to really look at needle. Fear needle dread fainting anxiety. Pain all these issues that may be enough of barrier to someone that they're not gonna get that second vaccine then they're only fifty percent covered or for the people who are gonna freak out and don't get the first vaccine not because they think there's conspiracy or not because they're afraid of the immune system in their body being co opted by space aliens lasers but because they just can't bring themselves to stand gang that

Transforming Patient Access Through Technology with Emily Tyson

"Welcome back to the outcomes racket saw marquez here and today i have the outstanding emily tyson joining us as the chief operating officer emily. Tyson drives rakes health's efforts to scale rapidly while building a high performance. Culture committed to improving patient access. Emily joined the company in january of twenty nineteen and from a functional perspective. She leads strategy client experience finance and operations in addition to the ever changing category of other. Say that in air quotes that early stage companies demand prior to join and ratings. Emily served as vice president of product for naveh health recently acquired by optum where she was responsible for the vision and direction of naveh health's product offerings across the health plan and health system businesses. Emily began her career in healthcare technology when she joined a fina health after various roles in the financial services industry in new york and hong kong. Emily holds her business. Administration summa cum laude from washington and lee university and our mba from harvard. Business school. today. We're going to spend a good amount of time talking about this digital front door. And what practices and large-scale health systems could be doing to do a better job of addressing the current area that were in healthcare so Emily such a pleasure to have you here with us today. Great thank you. So i'm looking forward to the conversation. Yeah likewise likewise and so before we dive into rate health and what you guys are doing. Why don't you tell us a little bit more about you. And the things that inspire your work in healthcare. Sure i i would say for me personally. There's there's no debate about whether the health care system is broken and it's really not the patient care itself that's lacking it's it's the back end at the administrative side of healthcare. That's really this nightmare of complex regulations and poorly designed incentives and outdated technology all of which actually negatively impact the cost patient experience and ultimately in many cases the outcomes. You know. I never personally wanted to be a doctor. But i've long been passionate about exciting this side of healthcare trying to make the pipes in the information flow in this pieces work by should really does require reaching beyond just technology alone so this desire instead of my focus on sobbing. The complex administrative challenges can be non-sexist ahead of healthcare but that do impact patient cares. What has led me on my career paths and ultimately now terrific celts of it. Yeah you know. There's there's a ton that needs fixing and optimizing maybe even overhauling in some instances and so having a unique approach that is focused on on on making things better on the back. End of the house is key talked to us about health. What exactly are you guys doing. And how are you. Adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Are we are focused on transforming patient access so Helped mission our mission is to make it easier for patients to see their doctors. It sounds simple but it's much harder in practice on. You know you shouldn't have to know someone who knows someone to know someone to get a quick doctor's appointment and yet that's often how it works in reality today. Deferred care is a really big issue and the industry even setting aside the global pandemic and the dynamics that's created the average. Wait time for someone to see. A provider is almost three weeks in the us at the same time on any given day. Many providers actually have availability in their schedules. So a lot of what we're focused on is how do you bridge that gap and there's a significant amount of complexity underlying yet so it's really idea of improving access. Which is every part of health focused on is about much more than providing digital layer for consumers. That's absolutely part of it. It's also about addressing this underlying operational challenges within a healthcare practice. Your system does that make it hard to manage patient access in the first place so we do both from a market perspective at comes in the form of products around central scheduling work slap locations and self scheduling communication platforms in check in along with best practices for how to think about optimizing patient access in the clinic beyond the technology itself.

Interview with Brooke Schultz

"Creativity is more than just having talent. It's about making a choice to utilize whatever talent you do have. That's a lot easier to say than do sometimes because self doubt and insecurity can service considerable obstacles. It didn't start that way because as kids we created without such distractions sometimes I think we spend a lifetime trying to unlearn all that stinking thinking. For Brooke Schultz her love of photography is more than just about making memorable portrait's families but helping other photographers to leverage their desire to be creative person. Using her workshop center podcast heartful with Brooke. Celts, she does just that. This was a conversation that very much looked forward to as it provided a special moment of positivity during some very dark times. This is e body and ex and welcome back to the candidate frame. The KENDRA frame thriller Nice to have you Thank you so much for having me a buyer your next. Are you know Marshall is often about more leading a creative lifer leading fruit for photographic line, which is all about just being creative in your your podcast in a lot of what I picked up from you focuses on that as well. So I thought this might be fun time not just the learn about your work but just to have. A conversation about creativity. Let's do that as much as I wanNA learn about you in your work I think. Having a conversation like this, like this is always always good to have someone. Yes. Thank you. In one of the things Dow was kind of interesting was this idea of giving yourself permission to be creative. And having been a man I you know I always taken it from the male perspective because it's the only choice that Hap- But. It's interesting in terms of something that I heard in terms of what of your episodes speaking from a woman's perspective especially, a woman who is. A wife, a mother, and in terms of sometimes the guilt that some women feel who are under the circumstances about making the choice to be creative from the cells in in terms of seeing it as something that selfish. And thought that was really interesting and it's not something that I really have had an opportunity to really discuss specifically of touched on it. I. Think at least a couple of times on your podcast I thought that would be really interesting way of starting in the conversation so. Talk to me about that. Wow well, I'm curious to know. have. You ever experienced that like a guilt feeling for being creative or is it just like I'm creative and I need to kind of work through the creative process but not so much the gill in terms of other aspects of your life most of my guilt is been not doing mea. Not so much that I felt like I was depriving. The. People in my life something as a result of making the choice to be creative. No every you sharing that because I think it's speaks to what women currently experience in a cultural sense that to be a good wife mother or just women in general, you are expected to do it all do it all perfectly and don't let anyone see you sweat dining and Especially to be a quote unquote mother you're expected and it's kind of like this seeing that runs in the background I think of just give yourself entirely to your children and any time that you spend away is somehow. Demerits or like a is taking away something very valuable from them, and so that's been something that I've had to really consciously. Reprogram in my own belief system to believe that the creative impulse is a human impulse and regardless of our roles whether it's a mother grandmother, you don't professional creative person or just someone who enjoys taking pictures or whenever you're creative outlet might be that those impulses are human that any humans in your care whether it's children or otherwise are going to be benefited by that creative impulse in my watching you be creative. Did. You ever feel this before you were a parent or is something that seems they've. Become especially pronounced after every given birth to kids. I think it's definitely more after having kids kids are so needy. ME. Need you all the time and especially as. In my family and many women as a mother, you're the primary caregiver and so you're the one that it falls upon to fill those kids needs all the time and my kids are really little. They're seven, five, four and three months so. You know they they need me a lot and so walking that line and that tension and dance between how much they need me and what I need. Myself is a really interesting one to walk and I think all of us walk that one way or in creativity because we have other obligations besides just you know sitting around getting inspired making creative work you know. So it's attention that everyone can relate to but I think it's especially prevalent in mother had.

How to Manage Cash Flow Through Uncertainty

"Well as your company grows or looks to save money especially people expenses. It's always good to look at the best tools and process run your business. The right tools and processes can help you either scale, your business, or running more profitably hit help and Tony Ward with the President of zero for the Americas. He has twenty years of experience in senior leadership positions with global technology companies including Microsoft Australia linked in spark, serving monkey and dropbox Tony Welcome to the show. Bearing talking. So first of all, tell me how you doing doing this pandemic you and your family. Yeah, it's actually we moved here from Australia in January? So my twelve year old my wife Celts in. I would say, pretty easily the worst time deposits. Hundred Years So. One Thousand Nine Hundred Eighteen Exactly, it's all upside from your very I would agree with that. Well, a lot of small business owners right now are trying to figure out how they can more effectively run their business with better prices with cost-saving apps where do you start? On The first thing I would say is that cloud technology I think has been we'll be seemed to be a real. Savior for a lot of businesses particularly through coded and. I give you an example I think everything from the front end of Your Business. So you know looking appointments things like timely. I can see a of people using figuring out new ways to market their business like your facebook and Google. In fact, if you'll get facebook's recent results that added a million new advertisers, a lot of those are going to be small businesses trying to figure out how to get more people in the door and then things like zero put back. Then to figure out what is actually going with your business and I know everyone is all talks about Cash is king and casual super important. But when you have a shoebox little receipts, it's very difficult to figure out what's happening with cash flow. So and I, kind of you don't running out of cash is almost like. An Iceberg and the sooner you could see coming the sooner you can potentially avoid it and so things like that. Help you do that are really really important always. But in this time, even more important to figure out what's going on your business and just automate as much as you possibly can to free free up your time to work on the business versus in business I think too many small businesses. Honesty that they're gonNA try diy everything and there are certain pieces of software that you can use action at free up to do things in your business. So Tony and your point of view where you actually start because I always say that you can't do everything at one time. What's really the tip of the spear? We'll the first thing that I would do, and this is a really interesting stat when you compare the US versus other markets that were unlike strapping young candidate UK in the US around thirty only thirty percent of small businesses have an accountant or bookkeeper. It's very much a diy mentality and what I would say to people is look we we get personal trainers we get coaching all the time and our daily lives. Yes. Seventy presenting small businesses don't have a coach don't have someone to go to and really talk about their business. And when you think about it, it's a lot of small businesses of debt their house on their business yet they don't necessarily see the value or having thought about getting our coach. So I would say getting a calendar bookkeeper, get a businesses visor it's going to be the best money era we're GONNA stand. So let me ask you a question about that. Why don't people do that? Because I agree with you so many people have no idea what's financially going their business why don't they take that step? Is it that they don't think they need it or they don't want to know what's really going on. Inching. Research over the last six months in their research. It's something to do the pioneering spirit of America where people believe I can do myself do it yourself and what we're trying to say, we tried to move people from Diy d I t do it together and so our research shows us that if A small business ties zero, and they're using an accountant bookkeeper, their survival rates, Shuki sixty percent higher over five years so. Logically. You think I should do that I think part of it is people get so passionate about their dream of writing because they just get into it and usually take some sort of compelling events tax issues or whatever, and when the most secret lies are I would think you know. Clan up from what you're GONNA do and you're probably enemy our data shows you can be more successful Malaga. So that's the first thing I do. Then you're kind of bookkeepers probably GONNA look how you're running your business and and work out with software like zero and others where you making money where you're losing money record to save money. You know and right now what you should be doing is you know renegotiating with your landlord if you can't if you have physical space figuring out of their other avenues, other ways, you can actually get your product to market that maybe aren't a traditional retail sense. So you seeing things like shop with Wind Amazon just explode 'cause you know businesses are trying to figure out how can I sell more product or service in the virtual world because physical world is so challenge that Obama. Tony I wonder if these are the same people that don't balance their checkbook. I don't have the date on that, but you'd argue, yes, I think that's probably true. You know what? They say the penny look after the pennies. The dog themselves. So yeah to it's probably reasonable. It's because we're not really taught these kind of financial concepts in school. Actually it's hard to understand what the profit and loss statement says. The balance sheet says the cash flow statement says and many times there with the wrong accountant that really doesn't take time to explain to them. So they kind of keep their distance from this stuff. I think it's been a chicken and egg I think a lot of our accounts into the paper is there really they want to get into advisory services? That's all they see the growth and Really are passionate about the small businesses that they look after. Talking to some of our Council peepers, curious cove experience, they're really struggling because they're talking to small businesses who are potentially business potentially losing her house. So I think small accountants want to do this, but they kind of need to be invited into the Party needs created a couple of products lately to try to help on accounts to give a reason to actually have that conversation. So something called the business sack shot thirty castles state and our new. Features inside zero where you can literally see in real time what's going on in your business and the thirty day cash will actually give you some insights as the white new should do Ingram plain English for a small business like collect these bills. Hey, this you're gonNA run into cash unless you collect these deals unless you delayed payment of these other bills so. And one thing zero does really really. Well as we we talk in Layman's terms. I think about my Mama's a hairdresser right Sheila Ramos along for twenty five years. She didn't get a peer now or anything like that. Say we use terms like money owed money owing inside zero because like okay I kind of that because I get money all money that's oats me I don't really get profit and loss credits and debits into council I think. Financial Literacy to your point area in small business is is not great because people just want my mum's London runner hairdressing Salon. She didn't WanNa do the books and I think making it easier for people to run their business and having software advisers that that do the boring accounting stuff is really critical to successively small. Wanted to brag about financial literacy because when I sold my last business in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine told this toward many times before I lost a million dollars off the sale of the company because I send my balance sheet nine MBA for northwestern university. So that's nothing to be proud of. It's it's really really challenging running a small business. You brand businesses I've had small businesses you spend so much of your time and effort certainly some people think are GonNa start a cafe a lifestyle. It's a lifestyle business. Alright sixty seventy, eighty hours. It's it's really really challenging. So anything that software due. To free up some your time to have more time with your family or to grow your businesses is really what we're trying to achieve. This idea of the three day cash flow because again, every business goes out of business. The exact same reason they run out of money and during the recession cash definitely slows down what suggestions would you have for small business owners for managing their cash flow during this period of time. The first thing I would do I would be really really hard core on any money that's actually ot you to collect that to be the squeaky wheel because a squeaky wheel gets the oil in this where we are right now there's a lot of money owed and certainly there are the ones that are actually really persists. are the ones that are going to get it. I'm I would be as I said before I be trying to renegotiate any kind of a large expenses that I have either get more favorable terms or reduction in order to protect your cash flow and then I would be thinking really creatively how I could get on routes to market for my product or service. So if I could I sell more online, there's really creative things that people are doing like I was talking to somebody today who they got a haircut for the first time in you know since March since the lockdown started. Your hairdresser had a physical salon. She wasn't able to have people in anymore. So she was literally going to people's houses and she said now that she probably wasn't going to reopen her physical business that this is really going to be the future of her business and then she was selling product, which you know is generally high margin she had that on. A website where she was promoting products and All the same time. I think you're gonNA see more and more of that sort of creativity. My Wife's still you know getting a personal trainer she's doing it over soon call right so she's not physically going to see this personal trainer personal trainers still making money, but they're doing it over in know a virtual environment versus a physical environment. It's really amazing because there are things that we're doing now that we never thought could be done remotely like my wife again, it's teaching Yoga classes remotely and I'm taking karate class remotely. It's really quite amazing what you can get used to. Yeah I just think it's the Sunders. Certain the research that we have is they're growing they're actually seeing this as as an opportunity and you know there are other business I really feel for you know Pasta Taliban businesses retell the that are doing it really really tough with someone are figuring out new channels new ways to do. So for sure there's GonNa be winners and losers. Like. There isn't every single economic downturn. Feel like it's kind of like a game of musical chairs things are going well in the economy. Excuse me. Things are going well in the economy and all of a sudden the music stops you don't know if you're gonNA have a chair. Yeah and I think you know the really smart service savvy entrepreneurs out. There are going to figure out ways to be successful, and there's going to be just like integrates recession. This is going to be a whole bunch of starting the kind of the hypothesis that we haggas. Particularly millennials every Neil you talked to, you seems to have some side side-hustle right and what's happening is is a lot of people are losing their their jobs, their side hustles becoming their main hustle. So you're gonNA see a whole bunch of new businesses come out of this, and some of them will be really successful on some will some won't make it, but you're definitely seeing green shoots in new businesses starting out. When should people actually choose zero? Of course the elephant in the room is always quickbooks. Why do people choose zero over quick? Book Solutions. I think one of the main reasons they choose it is very easy to use. It's very simple. It's very non accounting language. It was you know we created the category of small business cloud accounting. So we we don't have a desktop business we've always just had a class business so. It's it's built for the cloud doesn't it's not coming from the desktop and moving to the cloud. So I think ease of use. And just. Talked about being Hashtag. Beautiful. It's really nice piece of software to use very intuitive. and. One of the things I find that small business owners make as far as mistake is they don't set up a separate accounting system for their business. They just do it as an extension of their personal accounting system, which really is a problem. Yeah sickly sole-traders when they start out a lot of rooms are mixed kind of discolored business and pleasure or their personal encounter banking account. I would say that that is you know five starting a business. The first thing I do is I would set up a business bank account right and I would basically get some sort of accounting software whether it's you know zero or what have you I would look for the line of business software that is kind of the market leader in the category that I in. So you know in construction, they'd be Pro Gore finding you know running a hair salon. Be Timely find getting all my kind of soft were sorted out, and then I would find a really great accountable infect around flights ten percent of our accountable keeper channel. The people that are zero advisers are almost acting like managed service providers were there. Basically providing a stack of software plus advisory services to small businesses for a monthly fee. So the small business doesn't need to worry about. Well, what should I choose choose? Their their adviser is basically saying if you're in this particular industry, this is the the bundle of software that you need to run your business and all manage it all, and I'll help you with coaching. You run your business and I want everyone to hear what Tony is saying because to many times we don't spend any time setting up the infrastructure for our company and that's really easy these days with these cloud. APPS Tony. It's interesting. You know long time ago when Islands University announced doing. It. Guidance was eighty percent of your time. You're doing it should be planning twenty percent doing and I don't think that's much different for business I think, generally some small. Rush out and getting to it, and they don't think about the planning side of it. But if you don't build the foundations thinking about building a house with the foundation isn't rock-solid. You know, how are you going to build that twenty story building? If you have aspirations to grow your business, you gotta get the foundations down. You GotTa get a coach just set it up right from the start in your our research shows you're going to drastically improve your chances of being successful. We'll Tony I appreciate you joining the show where can people get more information about and that's spelled x. e zero? Zero DOT COM and check it out.

Tyler Gibbs and Jack Irving of Toyota Racing Development's TD2 driver development program

"Now. Let's get to part two of our conversation with Tyler Gibbs and Jack Irving just this I want to give you guys a chance to put some names with some faces here people who are listening. We've mentioned Christopher Bell. You guys mentioned Harris and Burton. I was reading a motorsports analytics story today in which Jack was quoted very highly on Chandler. Smith just wanted to give you a chance to tell us a little about. Who'S IN THE LINEUP? Right now and we're the names. We should be watching it from the Toyota racing development driver program. So it's funny. I think we have some remarkable kids coming up of all different ages all different ranges But it's still development like Chandler. Smith is is a gifted driver. I mean in in we've been with Chandler for three or four years i. I don't remember how long it's been a few years. He's been fantastic. He's always been a strong late model. Racer Kinda in his family team was was quite gifted enabled to kind of compete at a very young age with some very high level guys in racing and then he transferred that into Arca adventuring end and has been fantastic and the more he matures the better. He gets Which is really exciting. He's similar to like a younger Jones in that respect where he's young and been around it and he seemed so much older in a car and so much more mature in so that is translated into the truck races he ran last year and and I have some pretty high expectations of him as he does of themselves but he's definitely one of our up and comers that is on the young side mean seventeen and still developing and then obviously there's the Raphael Lazard the neckaces that we've been with for quite a while and I think most people know of Kazan truck races now. That were pretty happy about. And then there's there's lots of kids that we actively engage with and develop in all different areas were lucky not geographically focused either because we have teams all over the place and that's helped us engage with maybe some kids we probably wouldn't necessarily always get access to so there's some good kids in California. There's kids racing for Keith in Indiana. There's just there's just a lot of strong drivers out there the thing that's so interesting though. Is that their kids and kids. You never know what's going to happen so it's still development. I mean it's it's People. WanNa say whatever they want to say about how what what it takes to make it? But they're a work ethic focused drive a passionate WanNa do it is all super important to to make it and at some point maintaining that from fourteen fifteen. Sixteen seventeen is very very difficult to do. Know we can talk about it all the time about being focused in wanting it and all that but the proof is in Monday through Friday. And how hard? They're working what they're doing and to to be on top of their game and and for whatever reason at times that lapses and you know you could take a great kid who's Fourteen Jesse. Love is a kid we've been with since he was twelve. I think thirteen stupid. How young that was East we're really excited about him and you know then. There's kids like Geo celts. Who came out of nowhere in dirt and had outlawed program in in our racing with us and pavement. That's a little bit kind of a different road that he traveled and then we have Holly Holland and Greasy Trotter. Who really come aboard and done a really good job in kind of in all of our testing have looked quite good still have a lot of development to do. You know there's there's kids we lost Based on Ford coming in that is painful to so. There's I think there's a lot of good crop of young kids coming out racing and as long as they all continue to work hard developing keep good people around him then hopefully we'll see him down the road. We really good group. We have a good team of kids. it's exciting to them kind of interact with each other watch the quote unquote older kids. Who may not actually be older but have been in higher level than others and back and forth and so he has Jackson. We're really excited about about our kids. You mentioned most of the ones I attend to hit their Jesse loved Yosemite. I think Logan. Cv also part of the lineup. I believe I mean so. Logan was Logan is not as involved now. We still are working through some things to see if there's ways to work together it's just difficult to the process is difficult and how everybody fits in where they go. I mean Logan is ridiculously talented. I mean it's it's just finding the path and making it work is always hard. You know I mean you look at the McNally Lineup or venturing lineup with I mean. You have Corey Haim and drew dollar and Michael Self Austin Hills Rachel H at hr e and in. He's ridiculously good. And He's twenty four with two kids for God's sake so I mean it's awesome right. I mean in in in in Austin Hugely Involved Maximum Laughlin with with a jury in there. There is an amazing group of kids in. What's interesting is we're kind of lucky. We have some really driven dedicated guy who want participate and show up every day. And I mean that's what's crazy about the performance central a lot of those that we talked about minus the group their local to North Carolina. Right you get into dirt kids in our dirt. Kids are Cap. GotTa be the younger kids we've ever had consistently with Daisin Ken McIntosh and Buddy I mean it. Just these they're all babies right in and so they're and they're out. There racing are trying to raise eighty times a year. I mean it's it's just an amazing amazing situation but I think we've been very lucky. I mean part of it is. I think what we've done is a little bit different and and our teams of Baden in. That's been a big part of it. That's it goes back to what I said before. The integration of the teams is pretty special and something. I think I'm probably most proud about. Is that all those teams engage in actively discuss things with each other to try to help develop the drivers.

Revolution within the haredi sector? Ultra-orthodox women on Instagram

"On stories featuring ultra-orthodox rallies Middle East correspondent. Eric torture has encountered quantitative aversion to the media to but one story on the unlikeliest of topics gave Eric Harley Perspective on Israel's ultra-orthodox community we were meant to be meeting at a week shop. A boutique high end classy place. For the most discerning fashion-conscious Ultra Orthodox women in Tel Aviv. Instead we were standing outside a row of dingy apartments in the ultra Orthodox neighborhood of bonaire. Brac was this the right address wrecked and dirty prams rusting bikes and scooters crowded the steps. If H Building Ultra Orthodox men watch shirts black coats and lodge black hats rushed past not looking at ABC producer who had an eye waiting on the footpath except for one man who was pushing a baby in a pram. He conspicuously moved closer to US alarmed. By these two men wearing colored clothing amidst crowds of black and white he parked himself in his placid by be nixed staring then he pushed the Pramod Fouad making him move so he could position himself directly across from me all without speaking. I might I contact wondering if he wanted to talk but he just stood at the spice between us clicking a PUMPKIN BETWEEN HIS TEETH CLICK. Click click stay. I looked at flood. Who SHRUGGED THE STANDOFF? Continued with more clicking. I didn't mind this was actually better than some of my previous interactions with ultra Orthodox men when doing a story about men resisting. Israel's conscription lows some allowed us to film in the giant Bible College while others stridently resisted my attempts to film them demonstrating on the streets while filming another story in the same ultra Orthodox neighborhood of Tel Aviv. One man tried to fight me and I hadn't even been filming him one Friday evening. Crowds of Ultra Orthodox men and children blocked dot car on Jerusalem's main highway shouting Shabbat remonstration for breaking the Sabbath by driving police in a truck barreled in scattering them like skittles before blasting the few who remained with a water cannon so by comparison one man standing uncomfortably close to us in clicking Pumpkin. Sade between his teeth was a fairly mild experience. It ended with the arrival of Mary. Bilan stylist fashion blogger and social media personality. A six foot tall colorfully dressed thirty nine year. Old Mother of five who also happens to be ultra Orthodox even though Mary carefully follows the many roles of Ultra Orthodox stress. I didn't notice she was doing sir. Married Ultra Orthodox. Women are required to cover their heads in public. But I didn't know Mary's Long Brown hair was a whig abroad. Orange jump was at odds with the normally muted tones. Worn by many ultra-orthodox women. Her long flowing skirt was so fashionable. I wasn't paying attention. To the fact that also met the strict modesty demands of the ultra Orthodox world. Mary's might a name for herself. Dressing like this in publishing pictures and videos on the social media platform instagram. She calls it modest fashion down playing. It's religious origins. She says Kate Middleton now. The Duchess of Cambridge is an exemplar of this trend which also appeals to women who are not religious modest. She tells me now. Maine's Classy a researcher of Ultra Orthodox culture at Tel Aviv. University seem at celts. Berg told me the same thing. The increased number of ultra Orthodox women in the workplace was leading to some mixing of fashion. Id's Dr Salzburg. Now Kosheh closed. She saw her ultra-orthodox colleagues wearing to work and the religious women in her workplace now being more daring with the address most of the fashion nuance was admittedly lost on me. But Mary said it's allowed religious women to express themselves while avoiding criticism from this strict communities and she showed me a remarkable example of the religious fashion business in the basement below this dingy apartment block we threaded our way past the broken prams bikes and cheap toys past giant rubbish bins in the dark recess below. The building scattering strike cats. As we walked down some steps to a small door disappointingly. There was a buzzer. Instead of a secret knock but three excited female faces appeared and the women inside lead us into a shining Lee brought space. What wools pink panels and down lights gave a glamorous look to this basement workshop and styling studio of Benign Brex most sought after week? Mike is There was six ultra-orthodox women inside busy making wigs that cost from five to thirteen thousand Australian dollars. The hair is human comes from Russia and Sri Lanka Blonde and rid of the most expensive color and h wig is made specifically for the woman ordering it. The process of making a wig for each person takes two to three months and is a creative endeavor. It's off the wigmakers. Proudly told me not just anyone can do it. In the back of the workshop individual hairs are sewn threaded onto tot black nets giving the impression of thick lush hair. That's difficult to distinguish from someone's natural growth. I didn't realize all the women were wearing weeks. So expertly with their fringes threaded and halons disguised styling in fact wigs like this guilty of bank to good some ultra orthodox rabbis who set the rules of dress and behavior for their communities have banned them saying instead that women must shave and cover their heads with scarves knitted caps. This makes the wigmakers very angry. The Torah the Jewish Bible doesn't say women must be ugly. They told me only that they must cover their heads. These women are nothing. Like what I'd been told to expect from the Ultra Orthodox Women Mary. Young and families have an average of seven kids. Women also worked to support their families while many husband studied the Torah full-time the female employment rate for Ultra Orthodox women is the same as the mainstream Israeli population. While for men. It's only fifty percent early marriage. Nd heavy burdens of child rearing and work main ultra Orthodox. Women are often portrayed as victims of a repressive religious environment. That's run by men but these brought fallacious. Women were not victims. They were successful entrepreneurs soon to move out of the basement to a biggest studio. This place was filled with laughter and smiles as we took photos and had the week making process explained to us. Men Don't normally come in here especially not foreign men. They told us so visit was unusual and exciting. In fact I realized I'd had almost no interaction at all with Ultra Orthodox women before I see them everywhere but they don't normally speak to me. The experience was so different. My many interactions with Alterra Orthodox men some have been positive but the human tendency is to remember the violent negative ones much more strongly. I wish they were more opportunities like this to say the ultra-orthodox weld in such a funny friendly way. Many Israelis resent the for their extremism reliance on government allowances and refusal to serve in the army also for opposing sicklers. Riley's non observance of religious rules such as taking public transport on the Sabbath. We'll selling non kosher food. I understand all of that living as I do in Jerusalem. Israel's most religious city but now I understand that there's a lot of progress and a lot to like about the ultra Orthodox and to appreciated adjusted to look more closely at what women were wearing

Step 11 with Angela and John

"And welcome to A.. Beyond belief podcast for by and about people who found that secular path to recovery in alcoholics anonymous. And I'm here with my co host Angela. Be and we're GONNA be talking about step. Eleven can step eleven when you read it. It reads as sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact packed with God as we understood him praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out. You help me out with us. One Angela Yeah. It is a difficult one when it's red from how it was written but I don't think that most of US approach it that way so you know what was the way that you approached it or I thought of it. You know early on and stuff. Well okay now when I when I was with the sponsors to my old group when we got two steps ten eleven and twelve maintenance steps. There wasn't really a lot of practical work that we did. All we did was read. Read the material get together talk About it and my sponsor at the time just urge me. He said the best way to learn about these steps in the work. These steps is to help someone else now. Later many years ago this is now but it was further into my sobriety about ten years into my sobriety. I got a little bit more serious with a meditation. We started meditation group and I was meditating on a very regular basis and got a lot of benefit from it and learned a lot about it and that was my. That was my step eleven. It was never for me the Even then about making a conscious contact with God and I don't know if I even would even talk to my sponsor about that necessarily although we did talk about prayer but that was so long ago now that I don't quite remember it but as I as I you you know flash forward to many years later when I when I start looking at the steps again as an atheist now I'm excuse me now I'm Looking at what am I trying to achieve from the step and initially what I came did the collusion I came to. Is that what I'm looking for. Is Serenity peace calm and I thought about the serenity prayer so when I Actually wrote the step out in my way I just use the serenity prayer so for me the step is seeking the serenity eighty to accept the things. I can't change courage to change the things I can and wisdom to the difference however I get there and that could be meditation and actually really you know At one point early on even as an atheist where and I probably would still rely on this reciting the serenity prayer but not really thinking about added in terms as it being a prayer but there are times when I might be agitated or nervous or worried or just feeling out of sorts and reciting that in in my brain does kind of help calm down and I think it does because of my past history of many years of using that prayer and saying to myself still helps me and so I will from time to time say it. I don't really think of it as petitioning to a God though but but I do but I will do that. So that's Kinda Kinda where I'm at with it now. Another thing though that I did like about this the step when I when when I was first studying early on. And it's something that I've carried with me is the use of imagination in a constructive way so that you know. I can using the imagination in meditation so I can sit quietly and kind of use my brain to imagine myself someplace celts or imagining myself in a calm state or something like that and I and I have done that before so okay well interesting and I. I think that yours is pretty common experience for for most People who are atheist or agnostic. I'm I'm looking at the steps and such or who you know went through them The first time the way that that I do it I kind of consider this more of the continuing education step. And so you know to me. It's it's not necessarily about prayer or so you know petitioning to God or creating a conscious contact with God of course But you know part of that is the you know the will for us and on such and so for me. It's it's more of just You know continuing education continuing to Grow it's basically like taking what we did in steps two and three The way that I understand them. So like the step the list of resources we Developed and step two on things that you know help us create calm the the resources that we go to that are healthy. You know whether whether it is meditation already or going for a walk or hanging out with our dog that kind of thing And then the intention -ality of step three which is is that. Were asserting that we want to continue to grow in in this process and putting them together and then just kind of amplifying that so so the step I think is more about openness and And taking the new space we have in our life life in our brain from doing the creepiest step work and then putting something good. They're trying new things in life. Since we're not hopefully ruminating as much or you know we've we've learned a little bit how to keep ourselves out of some dysfunction in work situations or relationship ship instead of you know. What kind of stuff do we want to put in And that's part of it where it's developing our ourselves more. You know what is my purpose we can look at that a little bit more you know. Do I have a purpose or is there. You know certain goals you know. I don't mean purposes in you know I was born to do This but more of a you know what do we feel like. We can contribute and And so since we've done this previous work this is a step that I think is about Learning about ourselves more and trying things that maybe we haven't tried Even simple things like you know if you were prone to go drinking drinking in the woods maybe you could actually try camping and You know Taking the curiosity I think of trying the new things in different ways. So if you put it get it how would you. How would you word this if you were if someone asked you to ride it out if someone asked me to write it out? Let's see I guess I would say it was something it would be something along the lines of of This step is more about Continuing education trying new things and so that we can recognize our potential. Okay okay so this is really an and that makes sense to me that you kinda get to to the point where you've gone through you've gone through all of the other steps. You've you've reached a point where you've probably grown a lot. You're already working on a lot of things and this is just almost like could a recommitment to to challenge yourself to to continue along with that process. Yeah yeah so it's you know continuing being to grow In the usually you have more confidence particularly after you've done you know step nine and and you know gotten in over some of the scary parts of you know what other people might think or what the repercussions are going to be from that. You know and instead tenure you know developing better practices practices and routines and things to keep yourself you know more balanced emotionally and so this is like taking all that you've learned and being able to try stuff that maybe wouldn't
