"A Romanian Red seas. And so they feel like there's not so it evens out, yeah. Who Do you think ultimately? was. The superstar drive in this the hardest. To have the bubble Comeback Lebron Chris. What was your probable both sure we? We knew Ross to allow. He made it. He made that declaration early on process they they understood when you Chris Ball bronze is even Lebron's as not appoint executive committee. Does have powers way. I'll put it all. Whenever it was that superstar call adding was yeah Ron. Chris Paul Wyler Damian Lillard. Westbrook in Africa. Who Else Steph Curry? They all set like we gotta make this work. We gotta go out there and play and the bill. Can you imagine like say? Fate a place said we'RE NOT GONNA we're not we're not. Risking our lives not say right. been owners for Liam. will opt out of that. Shoe. They still might anyways. But if they opted out then, they were saying you know what. Cost us. You know millions of billions of dollars by not coming out. We have to factor that into these young. So I think the players looked at batted felt when I say players on the superstock players they lifted to that and saying you know if they can. promised us. They give us safety measures as off over. There is an office. That call was the most positive moment of this whole last four months. When 'cause as kind of I'd been Kinda waiting for? This is going to happen the superstars after kind of drive it a little bit. I thought the dynamic of who is on the call was really interesting. And the fact that dame was on the call. for variety of reasons was really interesting. You've I mean you were kind. How old how old was he when you started covering him? See a rookie or we were you there when he's working on all, speak writer. Yeah, so you've watched him evolve over the last. Eight years. When did you feel like he was an actual franchise superstar? This was a guy. You could build a fifty win playoff team around. Man. I knew he was special. He came into summer. League and I know assembly came to summary. Dominate. That performs better dominated that whole outing a lot knew it was sometime essential, but back then he was still today. The that's when it started to slowly become a point guard leap. That's when applied guards were even nationals at his. At his peak at the point yet, land. Sally he was with the Lakers up resigned with the Lakers funny day, because they missile when an interesting mass I game of Steve Nashes Oh your career and there was dame's first game. and He Egypt seed Nasl the need need. CENEX never recovered that was. kind of went off the top right there, but it was just A. Door put does out the I. Didn't I didn't think she would climb up so that category, but to see him. Wall will work is all. You know he's trading. This can agent with San Antonio. More Leeway ovation and he's just. I told you I'm honest I. See this come. I thought he'd be good at maybe make also, too, but you know he's definitely up there somebody that I. consider you know as debating who's the top? The most people say that, but. For the League. The League really evolved in his favor. which you know, you'd think like by his second year two thousand thirteen fourteen season. That's when the threes really started to kick in and I remember I found this old email. We had a GRANTLAND MBA preview email. We'd done this whole for our meeting about topics. We wanted to write about before the start of the season, and this is before the two thousand fourteen season. And one of the one of the angles that has the was like are three's going to ruin basketball. And at the. Probably actually even wrote the peace because you kind of feel things shifting where it's like, wait a second. Are these are these teams going to be shooting thirty? Three's a game. This where this is going that that seems crazy. And, obviously that not only is, that would happen, but it's what happened. You know on steroids and for somebody like Damon Perfect, but I always thought the whole lamarcus dame thing was so fascinating to watch from afar. Where for whatever reason lamarcus? It, it was like the Classic Movie poster. lamarcus didn't Kinda WanNA, except that both faces should be the same size on the poster. He had that thing like. This is Kinda my team. I'm not in. You could feel the dame thing come in. Why do you think he didn't accept that? This was like the perfect guy to play with. A Marcus is a guy who You know he he felt he was under. Appreciated is whole. Time there, PORTLAND? When he came in the team was Brandon Roy's. boy! They tried to annoy great odor. Brad Face and so he always felt like he was being dismissed S O. lamarcus. You know he didn't really mind with the. With the cultural. Diversity right here. He he didn't get out much. And nothing to like dame is just like. No Ego now I think some people have an ego to a certain extent, but I'm talking about. His Eagle is not to the point where he feels like he's above. Anyone else and so. I remember there would be situations. Like the last years of work is being. Played Two years ago believe. Marxism right now I. Think. It was yeah it was. It was three. I think three play three. So, there would be situations aware..

"There's no way for them to come out and play some sort of base set defense, and just let things happen. They had to be aggressive to have a competent defense and they knew that because they were playing this. Ultra the tiniest lineup in NBA history right on, but I think in a playoff setting with teams get to pick the weak points of that defense, which of which there are plenty. We talk about James Harden and Russell. Westbrook led defenses They're GONNA get figured out how people are going to spread that team to pieces. I and I think offensively. They're going to be easy to figure out right. It's basically spread it out. Let let Russ in heart and I so I think teams are going to figure it out matchup wise how neutralize that and defensively. They're gonNA find the. We points to soft spots and beat those up Denver. Like as much as I'm somebody who? I definitely was late to the joke each party. I was a strict non-believer specifically. Just. Defensively dislike this dude is so damn slow and can't jump right. It's the combination of the two things. It's like all right like. You're you're not gonNA move your feet, and when you are there like it's not like you're gonNA. Give some fantastic contest, right? Were Hibbert right so I was very apprehensive to join. The joke is chain, but you know as I start watching him more and more and his his genius level passing, and you know my favorite thing about jobs quite frankly is one on one. He's GonNa. Put you underneath the basket. When he backs pretty much anybody down. You can't put a switch on them. He's slamming his body and see you. He's he's moving you no matter who you are, and that's when I sort of regained a certain level of manning crunch time. You can't put one on the ball and when you send sue. He's GonNa. Find the open guy. That's an incredible weapon so as much as I've come to love and enjoy jokic as a player. I just think the surround parts. I sorry to interrupt. You don't want to be a homer. Murray, no, he. Season I was expecting to come out and be a bona fide, all star player, maybe a Kyri light. If you will right, a god is going to kill, you offered a Gerbil on the pull ups capacity enough that you know you got him as if he had blinders on. Just kill you. Pick and roll. He just hasn't done that. He was hesitant to take threes. This year on just didn't show me the place that I thought he was going to be there for my Gary Harris Forget about it. This guy fell off the freaking cliff the season. I'm just non believer in what they could bring to the table and. I happen to be in Los, Angeles of watch the Lakers and clippers all year. They're the best two teams in the conference just straight up and down. There's no two ways about it. Yeah, I think my favorite Dr Course team of seen thrown out. There is from Ethan Sherwood Strauss point of contention. You can hear it on the The athletic NBA show later this week. He's back in the thunder as a wildcard pick Lee Lino. You were high on the thunder pre quarantine. You're like you're calling the thunder. We're going to beat the rockets if if. I remember correctly is a long time ago. So es s right there with you. The thunder shock in the world I think he laid some coin on the maybe one hundred to one odds if I remember correctly lathwell. Coin on the whole, the story that I think Chris Paul. Really showed this season. He's almost bet when doesn't have those superstars around him. He's almost better is like if he can just sort of raise those guys. Ran To become better players like Shea Alexander. Who is a good player? But I think he really benefited from playing from. Someone experienced Chris Stephen Adams you know he's a very reliable player. He doesn't do all that much offensively, but he knows what to do. Set screen run to the rim. Get those balls and dunked and defensively play very well. I like the pieces. Pieces coming together, Billy Donovan did a fantastic job coaching them this season. It took him a couple of weeks to get things going at once. Chris Paul once it was pretty clear that like let Chris Paul sort of call the shots on this team and they can be good team. It's like when Chris Paul was in his early days air in New Orleans. David Westin Act which is the maestro, exactly he's just better when no one is really contesting whose team it is, and I think we saw a little bit of that with the Clippers with Blake Griffin and a little bit of that with James, Harden and James doesn't have a great reputation of playing with superstars himself so near Chris polls so much like you know what Chris Paul's the end of his career thunder, and no chance, and he thrived on that situation more so because it was like. Hey, I'm still a good player. I don't need to go out there and get twenty five points or not. He can only do I think he's on the like seventeen. Assists a game, but he's controlling. The pace is controlling the tempo, and then he's also hitting the big shots when they need in the fourth quarter very good team, the thunder in close situations. Yeah, and again I think that's that's largely to do. With Chris Paul and his ability to sort of make the right plan. Make the right decision which has been something that has cost him in the playoffs so. It's a bit of a conundrum there, but I love. I just love the way they played this year. I don't think they could beat the Lakers or the clippers, but I do think beat the jazz. The thunder as you can see the thunder beaten any other team exactly yes, the seven series jazz, the nuggets and the rockets I think they're better than those teams so I just don't think they've got quite enough to get past the Lakers and the clippers all right all right well, we. Got, more questions for big was here big bubble questions before we do quick word from our sponsor before.

"Areas. But again one team have the Bron- that end up making the difference. With. Sixers have having Ben Simmons and Embiid on your team. If you figure out, everything else could be the difference in I mean. They were a co-author bouncer away from going to overtime. Maybe winning that game would maybe going to the conference finals. And they would by the bucks who make beat it. Maybe they get last year. If not far. But, that's that's a realistic time on. That could have happened. In, then Jimmy Butler back, everything's a little bit different. But I'm saying it's not like that far fetched. Some saying having to best players to the best player that say in the conference on your team devops slashes my one. The lowest he then for the West I think would go the couple that you could go thunder there at the five right now. As low little, too young in the key spots like I mean Shay was he's been last year with the clippers but. I don't know if they're ready for like the the big time left the clippers or the Lakers yet. Chris Paul? You Got Gallon? You Got Steven Adams Guy that had been there, but also you got you got. You got the work. Who's WHO's a young? You're you got? A, who else you got Diallo? You, got A. I'm trying to think I'm not. Ferguson has been up and down on rotation this year you got. Out Aurora's in coming back was interesting. He hasn't played in three years. It seems like. But I mean he's good defensively when he's on the floor. So that could help, you would think. But again I mean how much playing time didn't get who knows? Schroeder again easy. He's been to files to you got him. Noel. Good, you know he was hurt I think the time the season was suspended on Bazeley who's been good for them as a as a rookie. In a little bit of minutes, he's got some young guys. I don't know if they're. Hundred percent ready, though again, having Gaza Gallo and Chris Paul that have been. To plows for even seem bidding. Applause plows before. Been in big games, big moments before data help those guys, the shades or the shoulders who has really been it's been last last couple of years. midnight deep into the playoffs like the door. It's the aloes the next Bazeley is. Even the Ferguson. The guys are like not really. Big Time Games. Don't really help to have those guys, but again they might be. I. Don't know this is going to be the Guinea figured out today. Who knows neither, said the Cinderella reason they have. I mean they've a one of the best. Crunch time clutch teams. They made a lot of comebacks. You never out of it, but again the bubble. Differences in my opinion almost like crazy, but like you don't feel like the two separate seasons. Because everything we thought we knew then maybe the same, or maybe something may totally different math, so you'd argue for them I. Think the rockets. Probably everyone's like sleeper Cinderella teams again. If in a gym where there's no real crashes, basketball US roll out and play. That sounds exact tile solid basketball. The rockets WanNa play does like rollerball out there and would just going to bet on our guys even better than your guys. With the rolling with working out well with the small ball lineup within season suspended. and. We'll see how hardening. have looked like Sean hardened losing weight, so we'll see about that but yeah so. They could if this if this continues to work? I mean all Muslim faith rockets. Usually when everyone's like Oh, hard-nosed falls off in the playoffs or whatever, but that may very well be true. Plus Tarkhan, carrying load in the regular season which one? He didn't do as much as year because he had us. not. They didn't have Chris Paul and stuff like that before, but. Busy built the offense. Decatur to Russ with trading Clint Capella because. Harding Clint were very good within just like all right with Russell out on the Florida's make any sense. Basically got him. Got Hard, intensely in in good shape ready to go not going to be tired. The Air Gordon who's WHO's dealing with injuries is back healthy fully healthy now. Maybe gotten better shape. stuff like that so them. Saying obviously everyone's Cinderella team. Just because I think they get. They get if they click. Then there's no reason they shouldn't make a deep run depending on the match ups. but then some the lower teams. Because are at the. said the. Rockets Thunder. Thunder at five in the rocks at six currently, but some lower teams I think the blazers they get in their sneaky team. Just because now they got knowledge back. Guys that Collins back was the team that made the conference finals last year like Larry last year granted, and then not even just. Greg but they were up every game against the warriors. Every single game somehow who all leads. They were up every single game. Easily could have won all four those games. and. I don't know how good or bad. Mel's GonNa be in these but I. Think was Tom. Awful able to make sure he's in great shape. You can't tell me. Mel is not going to have like one or two guessing diplomacy. Amancio took thousands. But if they get in, he's not gonNA have like one or two really good games. If they play long enough I. Don't see that as. See that as being that far fetched so may have some people that could be. Helpful so got. This is back, so they get in? They're going to be playing the Lakers. In the first round. So, you gotta you gotTa. You GotTa deal with Davis you've gotTA deal. With McGee. You GotTa deal with Dwight Howard now. We're cage. Back, it kind of helps them combat that again and the day was better than both those guys easily. Looking at more Paul Hooper thought them without them like he was gonna be a long. It's still going to be a long for them. Now! They have more tall buys to combat the other tall bodies. And then blast team. Will be in my opinion, the Pelicans because the kings they get in. San With Spurs. Fan! Which I don't think Leila. Is Not playing 'cause like injury so. They're GonNa do on the suns. Are there too young poverty far back? To make that to make sure not only. Two and a back in the blazers. So not impossible but. You guys all have enough like they Andre is not enough to help with. A big is download. Guard the. So. There's that, but also on WHO's GonNa Garden Booker. well, you've probably dating green on them because no Bradley. Danny Green now Rondos, so we're dry will. That that news came down a little late that he got hurt and I didn't know these under the injury when I started. So. I'M GONNA save that for the for Tuesday or Wednesday when you guys. here for next to talk about that, and what the Lakers to do now again, I don't know how. In Ravi seems a little bit more important to me than Rondo does 'cause they can find somebody to do. Give Rise Men's and just like facilitate the morning if Davis the pro on the court but Bradley for what he did, bring defensively is going to be tougher to make up in my opinion. But we'll see about that, but yeah, it's the last thing would definitely be the Pelicans. Obviously, which again you had to get in, but Xilin they will get back in shape. people worry about shape the shape although stuff well, he's in shape now, so we get that and then I just the young fresh legs in helping environment like this. Wouldn't you like environment? It makes sense that younger team would be more suited for that. The Meghan Ory, gun need the days off from the rest between games. Where they're gonNA. The young fresh legs. And also I just thought I think it would just like the the storyline in of itself might be enough to elect. Help I don't WanNa say help motivate because again. You're on need motivation I don't think. But it's the the revenge. Factor of that would be pretty cool to be like all right. If you're Lonzo if you're who I, think's GonNa. Be Helping issue. Not The things should be healthy now unless Alonzo if you're Brandon Ingram. If you're Josh, heart, the guys they dream. If you're is on, who basically they? I mean using number one pick relax I..

"Thank you so much for joining us today we're talking about this idea you put out a piece this weekend about social justice messages being allowed on the back of players jerseys so instead of seeing James an artist combo you might see black lives matter or CEO say his name or some of these messages that we've seen circulating on social media and other platforms where did this idea come from mark you know I I think people would probably assume maybe to premier league when they have black lives matter might be the thing that from my talk with Chris Paul he just was looking for something creative personalized to give every player an opportunity to get behind something so it it doesn't necessarily have to be the black lives matter movement it doesn't have to be you know a name but like whatever is personal to them so you know it it could be somebody met name in a charity it could be somebody bring in I mentioned to a cause I think what the players association is going to do is give guys ideas that are struggling to come up with ideas but Chris Paul wanted to you know give every player to address something that's personal to them on the back of their jerseys so yes I think it will be heavily happy with things things like black lives matter say her name even and Chris made a point to say that but for for players who want to grab say Hey you know I want to bring more attention to A. L. S. or funding schools you know they they have the ability to do that as well mark I know that's something we've seen across the NFL with the my cause my cleats you see guys with their charity or whatever it is that they stand for and and it tends to be a great conversation starter you know in the locker room that week or during the game whatever that is when you look at the movement and the protests against racial injustices right now how do you see this as a way that players can continue that conversation so things don't quote unquote go back to normal once we start getting sports back well one thing is that that's a crystal hopes that say when the player does interviews that they can bring up what's on the back of their jerseys and and you mentioned that and a post game interview on television or radio or in our daily interviews from practice but also it'll be interesting to see how long they wear these jerseys if somebody decides to wear on the entire season I mean that to me is is something like every time you score a point or every time you come into the game it's inevitable that the camera will pan on that person's Jersey and what it's saying but it also I think is just one thing of many things that the NBA players are led by Chris Paul players association work to do in Orlando in the NBA is standing beside them to allow him to do these things so I think when this kind of got leaked out Chris wanted to explain it more but yeah I think they're gonna have a megaphone during those three and a half months talking about social injustice police brutality other things and this is just one of I think on a number of things that they want to bring highlights to it it is the law if we can tolerate NASCAR rattling off sixteen sponsors in their post game interviews interviews rather I think we can handle a player taking a moment or two to recognize whatever the messages they've put on the back of their

Animal Agricultures Awakening Hour

"Today's guest was inspired by his dad to change the world and have a lasting positive impact on health and the environment. I'm talking about Ethan Brown. The founder and CEO of beyond meet a disruptive and innovative plant based Meat Company and. I know you've seen her to them. Because they are ubiquitous. These days interview was recorded pre covert nineteen so while we don't specifically discuss it. This episode is very timely. Since as you've I'm sure read. One of the areas most affected by this horrific disease. Is Our food supply chain specifically the animal food supply chain. The conditions are deplorable for both the animals and humans at these meat processing plants and the health of both is compromised. Daily Ethan discusses in detail. I was company is improving the efficiency the safety the health and the environmental impact of his beyond meat. Production and the benefits are huge. We know that the average consumer even those who eat animal meat are aware and very concerned about these health and social issues. As Ethan says I believe there is a new dawn for American agriculture. And this conversation is our awakening our in fact just last week. Jim Cramer the host of mad money on. Cnbc said that beyond meat is a small company but so Amazon so was facebook and so was Google and then he goes on to say and I quote. It's all going beyond meets way and what is beyond me doing. They're cutting prices. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based Kramer continues to go on to say that the rising demand for plant based protein will not be a passing fad and that. There's no hobby here. The Hobby is going to end up being meet man. Jim You are talking our language. I think the pandemic is saying start eating plant based eating meats going to become a hobby love it? Here's to having the heart of a hero and not being afraid to challenge the status quo in fact instead of being divisive it's time we collectively come together and work to solve these problems on behalf of the animals the longevity of our planet and our own health it is my mission and it's the mission and driving force for my friend. Ethan Brown all right here. We are season two of the the plant. Strong podcast I am here with Ethan Brown. The CEO of beyond me. And I want you to know and I'm at World Headquarters for beyond me. Where exactly are we? So we're going to California el Segundo AB- like what two miles from the airport? Exactly yeah I mean it was the most. This is the easiest drive ever made from the airport and season to just so you know the whole theme is heart of a hero and we're really trying to identify People that are changing the game and and that's who were having an inviting on season two of the Pike Aston. You probably more than just about anybody. I know are changing the game in a multitude of ways and I and I wanna get into that so you are truly a game changer. Speaking of the game game changers. Have you seen the movie I have in before I even get into that? I mean I just WanNa share on August the impact you and your family out on my own life and just how much a fan of yours and incredibly sincere. I've watched forks over knives yet more times than I can count Shared it with more people than I can count And you don't want. We got a chance to connect few years back. It was a terrific thing for me. No I've been a big fan of yours for a long time to be here being everybody. You surreal well. I I'm flattered. Thank you and so in the game changers. You saw it. Did you like it. I love that movie. Yes in fact. You're so intimately viable that but I'm having to stop myself showing you a clip. Because it's almost every time someone comes to my office injured in this subject. But of course that would be lost on you because you set the record for most I think most downloaded most downloads of a documentary ever and they broke it in a little over a week. It's remarkable and it resonates so strongly with me for so many of the reasons that it also resonates with you of course But even as somebody's building business it was really important for me to see this You know growing up we were very much exposed to the got milk campaign. I mean that was something that was a big part of culture and and maybe less so today but you know the use of athletes to promote a particular type of animal-based protein with something the California Milk Board. Did you know very well And and that was something that because of my own background and interest in the milk industry. My family was doing I paid a lot of to the got milk campaign with came time for me to start my own company I. She hired the original sponsor of that campaign. I'm Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board. He had left since you grew up on a dairy farm. I grew up in the city. Okay on my dad's a professor and we He he didn't like being in the city and so he wanted to have a place to recreate because he grew up in the country and so got a farm Very early on in my childhood and he's kind of entrepreneurial so ultimately we get wholesale cattle there Dairy but but he rate so To went back and found the person who who wrote the original mandate for the got milk campaign of someone named Jeff Manning on the California Milk Board and that led to that campaign with milk mustache. And you know Bo Jackson Derek. Jeter et CETERA. And so I asked him to come work with me so we were together for a number of years creating the future protein campaign that we have here on the go beyond campaign and it's been been remarkable woman named Beth. Moskowitz has brought in more athletes. I can count Really remarkable career having or you know deandre Jordan Deandre Hopkins Chris Paul. They are now getting behind the idea. That a plant based Diet is the best performance and so game changers just nails that yeah and and there's a scene in there with the Tennessee. Titans football players and chastity. Morgan yes is cooking. I think some burgers on a grill. Those beyond Meat Burger. Yes we love the the Morgan's and all they're doing and I think that's just a great story and you're seeing that Clifford throughout the NFL particularly NBA. Where lightness quickness is so important you seeing so many. Nba Athletes turn to a plant based Diet for no other reason improve the performance. They also love the social aspect of it. They love the disruptive Challenger. Let's let's not do things the way we used to do. Let's bring something forward in this. World is a little better for for their kids. The challenge the status quo. Yeah there's a big big part of that

"chris paul" Discussed on The Lead

"But I don't think that the matchup would be ideal there either because it's going to be really hard to stop James Harden and Russell Westbrook in a series too but you know the thunder will be hard to stop to. They closed out so many games. This year named develops such a chemistry that whenever they get close in late games. They believe that they're going to win. No matter who the opponent is so this sort of don't forget about me story. You know like a lot of people kind of wrote off Chris Paul when he went to Oklahoma City but is this whole situation. A reminder that you know. We shouldn't forget that Chris. Paul sort of an og yeah. I think it's a story of a player. Shouldn't be defined by every place he's at he should be defined by whatever's happening then and going forward. I think that Russell Westbrook's doing the same thing in Houston. A lot of people wrote off Russell Westbrook early in the season but Houston changed the way that they've played they've gone to a small ball lineup with no center essentially or a small center and our Russell Westbrook is flourishing in their offense and looks closer to his best years in Oklahoma City. I think you can say the same thing for Chris Paul. It was presumptuous of us to write him off just because he had been injured in previous seasons. If you get a healthy Chris Paul. You're going to get a very hungry and driven team. I think the big surprise in terms of Chris. Paul is how much he's been willing to let go and how much he's been willing to share the offense and be a part of the offense as opposed to the entire thing or the entire control of how they do things and I think that says a lot about how willing these guys are to rewrite their narratives as they get older and deeper into their careers. It's really a credit to Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul. What's happened this season and they're like we've said? There were a lot of people who assumed Chris. Paul would demand to be traded by the thunder. Sort of like what Andrea Gwendal with Memphis? Or that he might just kind of bide his time until he went somewhere else. But that is not the case at all you know. He's playing a lot of minutes. He's only missed one game season. What does all of that tell us about Chris? Paul as an extreme competitor you know just talking to his family and just talking to him. He'll use the term he just wants to hoop no matter where it is. Whenever I do have the opportunity to play I enjoy playing because you get perspective when you're injured and you can't play you know when I'm able to play. I want to play you know so like I can't speak for anyone else but it's nothing like who nothing. There's something to be said for a guy who ends up in a place and still gives his best effort despite the that. That's not what he anticipated happening. This is a guy who's been through a difficult year in terms of his career. You know his family still in Los Angeles. He has to go see his family on the off days and the time that he has to see them but he does have people with him in Oklahoma City. That support him. He'll have his brother or his dad with him but he's doing work away from the people he loves and for him to do that despite the fact that he didn't play in any of this really you know it's kind of a testament to how much he loves the game and how committed he is to continue to be a championship level player at this age. So it's sort of like a renaissance season for him in a sense where thanks so much for joining us and enjoy the home stretch here. Thanks for having me anytime. You can follow Eric. Horns coverage of the Oklahoma City thunder at the Athletic Dot Com. Here are some other stories. We're following at the lead. Olympic gold medalist aly race. Men had some strong words for proposed settlement between USA gymnastics and the abuse survivors of Larry Nassar. It's honestly it's offensive. It just shows they don't care they're just trying to you know push it under the rug and hoping that I think people forget about it when they watch the Olympics. This summer the proposed settlement would pay two hundred fifteen million dollars to. Nassar's one hundred and fifty plus victims in a tiered system. Based on how far they're gymnastics careers progressed and when the abuse started it would also absolve former. Usa gymnastics leadership including former president. Steve Penny and Martha and Bela Karolyi from any liability meaning. They couldn't be sued for ignoring or enabling. Nassar additionally USA gymnastics wouldn't be required to disclose. Who knew what about Nassar's abuse and when they knew it. Simone biles currently the best gymnast in the world and the favourite to clean house at the Tokyo Games. The summer also vented some frustration. Tweeting quote still want answers from USA G an US OPEC WISH. They both wanted an independent investigation as much as the survivors. And I do anxiety. Hi Hard not to think about everything that I don't want to think about and the NBA is making recommendations to players on how to avoid getting the corona virus a memo obtained by ESPN says. The league will advise players to use fist bumps rather than handshakes and not to take things like pens jerseys and balls to autograph according to ESPN. The League has been consulting with the recommendations trailblazers guards. Cj mccollum tweeted quote. The Corona virus has officially hit Oregon.

NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances

"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.

Electronic Television: The TVs of The Future

"We are. Currently I think a lot of people would say living through the golden age of television in terms of the quality and the quantity of shows that are Out there you are scholar of the medium and scholar of the technology itself. I'm curious what you see. As the connection between technological psychological breakthrough sort of happened and the development of the actual content that we see on those screens. You have any thoughts on that we could start at the current moment right. I mean in terms of the way in which networks are producers have to respond to both kind of changing industrial conditions like the challenges to traditional networks new distribution services how streaming services actually changed the way that not only is content delivered but then what kind of genres actually seem best within that context and so often I talked to my students about you. Know How do they view. What do they consider intimate viewing and so it both is about the actual genre the kinds of formats and the programming? But also. Oh it's about the technology itself so they'll talk about how viewing on an IPAD is more intimate for them and that they pick particular genres to view in that intimate context so dramas that they have to concentrate more on our things that they would watch on their IPAD. Things that they watch on big screens are things that they want to watch. What their friends traditional television network programs sitcoms like a good place Game of thrones of course because they WANNA have all the sort of detail of the screen. So it's a combination of both the viewing practice the screen itself and then the kind of industrial and technological conditions. The moment my son was watching for a while wilde his my oldest son this so this is appropriate. It's not like he's seven was what was watching. Game of thrones on his phone and I was like that is just a terrible injustice to visit experience. No you can't do that. You have to see a lot of excrete and then eventually came around. But the other thing that I thought about a lot is the ability to both binge-watch but also to re-watch right but kids today forget I mean when when I grew up on fifty one when I grew up we didn't have VCR's even much less streaming and so things just aired pretty much once and then there would be like a rerun in the summer and that was it you would get two passes at it and you had to watch it. You couldn't posit. You can do anything like that and so it put a ceiling on the complexity of the kinds of stories. You could tell because people could only take in so much they couldn't go back and re watch it again to figure out what happen right. What's you could tape something and then once you could stream it will once you could binge-watch it suddenly the kinds of stories? You're able to tell really got more complex. Yes absolutely I mean I think think about lost as this kind of transition moment to about like how they even. I don't know if you remember when they tried to do reruns of lost and they had to put captions on the bottom him to explain how the what would happen before because people couldn't kind of remember it was seen as such a complex narrative and it just didn't work in reruns right and so that would not be a problem now so you can tell these kind of very complex stories but it's fascinating to me that kind of toggle between different attention levels so some the students to where I just had my first class yesterday of the semester and they were talking about how often it's difficult for them to only watch something on their screen that they want to also so you know chat on their on their phones or whatever and so that. They put in sort of safeguards for particular programs so that they will only watch and so they're capable of doing that right. It's now these various contexts. Viewing we have all sorts of sizes and types of screens for viewing. So I think that's not just a new thing and so thinking of the history of Color Television in is also related to those kinds of issues chain so I want to make sure we go back and talk about the history because we were just immersed in early days of what was effectively black and white television television than Farnsworth was working on. TV The next big breakthrough after that is really colored TV. And you've written about this. At length was the first kind of most most promising attempt to what was the first hint that colored. TV was coming. Well it's interesting because color. TV was always the development was kind of running alongside black and white but it was a more complex technology to develop you know just to manage the various technical aspects it would require eventually a larger bandwidth and it just was also also more difficult to manage and control to get color right severi early on it was sort of seen as this is a maybe a novelty that will eventually become something that is what what everybody watches. It's the eventual place. We're going is color because that would be the full sensory experience yet. Black and white would probably be the first standard and and so we have a moment in late twenties where we see demonstrations of color. John logie Baird in the UK. And Herbert Ives at Bell Labs and the US demonstrating color player and people being very impressed with it. So that's kind of a big moment Like a successful color television system reporters are writing about it and so it's what year period of seven hundred eighty nine. Yeah so color. I'm just thinking about color. Film is like wizard of Oz. That stuff is thirty. Eight thirty nine. Yes but so really. The history of color film people will talk about how it's really always had colored handpainted color film and so forth so again that was always we've seen is that would be the complete experience sound color movement rate for both mediums. In a way. When do we start to see things? That aren't just kind of science. Experiments elements where people are actually like they were building actual sets in their starting to talk about how we could get these into consumers homes. Well there's a period in the forties it starts with the competition four four. What would become a working color television system? That often was talked about as a practical color television system that could be commercialized really intensified and that's when RCA starts it's getting involved in it too about Amir's workin starts working on it as well as CBS well in there becomes this sort of competition there's other inventors and that's of course I'm sure you talked about with black and white televisions not just one in bitter right. It's this kind of complex story about patents and industrial competition and individual inventors and inventor's that are working for major companies and so that happens with colored television as well but we also have World War Two. That breaks it up Chris. Paul and so it's not not until the late forties early fifties that we start to see the industry getting together to start coming up with a standard and so various companies are competing to be the standard tendered for us color television so the first commercially available color TV sets show up in the fifty in the fifties. There's a brief brief moment were CBS's. I awarded the standard and then it goes to RCA WHO's the parent company of NBC so NBC starting in Nineteen Fifty Three. They are the only network. That's really taking color as this. Is Our project. This is our brand. Eventually that's why they have the peacock rate as the funding the logo and and it's also point of identification. Of course that this is brought to you in living color was away for you to know that you're missing something. This program in particular is in color Unusually it was some kind of spectacular. Something that you would actually want to see in color and then the reviews were all describing it like oh this Peter Pan Spectacular. It's only really worth it if you you were seeing it in color. Because they of course gave color TV sets to all the reviewers as well and they were different places in the fifties where RCA placed color TV set so that people people had exposure to it because color TV sets were around two thousand dollars when their first release in and quickly went to like five hundred but still in there. What's out roughly in? Oh I don't know the translation a lot and so the black and white sets which has only gone in the market in the late forties and we're just starting dissemination. Were more like two hundred right so they were already a big item color. TV was a big luxury so that was seen as a high end luxury items. You had to be sort of an early adopter to maybe do it. And you had to have a reason as a consumer to really want to see it right as you were just getting used to black and white and this was part of the discussion to consumers had just been sold. Black can wait television. And then these color systems were coming out and sew. CBS did not have a compatible color system. Which is color system that you could transmit in color and would be picked up also at black and white and so that was some of the issue and NBC made this kind of public interest argument? That people had just bought these sets. Why should they now make? Those was useless. So we're developing a compatible color set which was allowing you to do it either way you can broadcast in EP of black and white set. That's great it'd be of color set. You can pick it up and color in terms of the content pioneers Disney. Did some early influential work with color. Right he was one of the typical were Disney. He was one of the early adopters the format so that was that the wonderful world of Disney. That was I called the wonderful world of Colored Disney had been working with ABC in the fifties and then they moved to NBC purposely for color. Because they're yes. His Ni saw himself as a if you could go back and watch the first episode sexually available on on Youtube and he presents himself and the studio as a an innovator in all these different ways I we brought sound to film than we were the first with animated films films to bring color and then now here we are and we're bringing teller to

Jimmy Kimmel ditched his studio audience for a somber tribute to Kobe

"Jimmy Kimmel. Who does this show from here in L. A. had coby on his show fifteen times times and was so affected By the accident and by his death that he decided to send the studio audience home last night he did not have a studio the audience and he opened his show by saying this. Hi I'm Jimmy Kimmel and tonight show is going to be different from our usual. We'll show we don't have a studio audience here tonight because going forward with a comedy show didn't feel right considering what happened yesterday. So I'd like to speak to you. Directly we as you undoubtedly know Koby Bryant and his daughter Jonah and seven of their friends were killed in a helicopter crash yesterday here in Los Angeles and that was a punch in the gut for many of us. Kobe was and I know this might not make sense but he was just the last person you could ever imagine something like this happening to. He was so strong and handsome and smart and energetic he was a hero. And when I say that I don't mean hero like real heroes like firefighters or doctors and nurses who actually save lives. I don't mean to compare what he did for a living moving to what they do. I know there are more important. Things have basketball. Almost everything is more important but Kobe was a hero in the way. Superman is a hero. He was so big. It was almost like he was a fictional character. A real life superhero with a costume and everything walking amongst us. Those of us. Who Love the Lakers? No it seemed like he always came through. He always showed up to save the day he wanted to save the day. He had a force of will will. He never gave up as an athlete. He was incredibly gifted more than almost anyone. He was talented beyond reasoning. Yet he worked harder than everyone. He work harder than people with much less talented he had. He took his job and his pursuit of excellence so seriously he was completely dedicated to being as good as he possibly could be which is inspiring to anyone who does anything and we loved him because of that but we also loved him because he was ours we watched him grow up here he came to La when he was a teenager and unlike almost every other superstar athlete he never left in his twenty year career he will only wear to uniforms. Forums for the Lakers and for the United States Olympic team. There were times when it seemed like he would leave but he didn't he stayed until the end and e someone almost everyone in. This city loved not just Lakers fans. Everyone would light up when they saw myself. Many times he was special he was a special person a great basketball player for sure but more than that he had so many interests outside of sports he was intensely curious he would call people. He admired to interview them. Business leaders writers inventors. He was always learning always improving hunger for that when he was injured when he tore his Achilles. I sent him a book and he to my surprise prize's read it and then called me to discuss it in maniacal detailing want to know everything about it and then I was like. I don't know Kobe. I didn't write it. I just bought the book and I had to put them in touch with the guy who wrote the book and that's what he was like. I'd many conversations Kobe off of television and they always involved his daughter's water's always you. Once retired for basketball his life revolved around their lives. He was very proud of them. He loved being a father when my son had heart surgery he he checked in with me repeatedly he made a point once. Billy my son was out of the hospital to meet him. He wanted to meet him and from time to time. You check in to see how he was doing and yes I know he was not a perfect person. I understand that a my intention is not to canonize him or or make judgements about things. I don't know anything about but I will say he loved this family. He worked very hard and he brought a lot of joy to a lot of people in this city. And we're going to miss him and I hope you'll pray for his daughter Jonah. And for their mother Vanessa for the three girls. Kobe left behind lost their father and their sister and his friends were on that flight. Within the Altobelli Family Christina mousers family. Chester family are as a buy-in the pilot. I can't imagine how much they are missed. This was a terrible loss for those families and the Lakers for Kobe teammates fans. It's just there's no silver lining here. It's it's all bad. It's all sad. He was a bright light. And that's how I wanNA remember him and you're hitting all sorts of reactions like this Carmelo Anthony any now. Just put up an instagram post. Chris Paul put up an instagram posts. I think people are starting people who have been able to utter a word the last two days. We've seen Lebron last night now. Carmelo and C. P. Three today read part of the Carmelo. Anthony Post he says I hate when I have so much to say but I can't put any of it into words the times I have the most to say are the Times that I can't talk. I'm screaming inside but I can't be heard you don't know how hard it is to pretend to smile when I have these clouds of emotions you you just called me and told me you were coming to the game Friday and that you were proud of me so colby colby had talked to Carmelo and was planning to be at the game Friday night

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is officially one of the NBA’s best young players

"With Gilders Alexander Alexander. I liked him as a prospect. I did not love him. And that's because of the jumper aspect I was like well. How real is this? He shot over eighty percent from the free throw line which is encouraging he had. Good touch on floaters layups which he still does. And that was encouraging he did shoot forty percent from three at Kentucky is just the had this. It's kind of like ugly looking form especially off the dribble and you wondered how much as a guard he could be a shock creator but even today you watch lots Gilders Alexsandr and you think about like the the construct of a guy like him at six foot six lanky with with at the time a questionable shot it it was hard to come up for successful comparisons for him in the NBA for what he could grow into. But a lot of Rondo right like that was a Rondo or even like you could have said even like a Michael Carter Williams. You could have said somebody like that too. And you know. Granted Carter Williams has had some good moments as without the reliable jumper. That's what's limited him as an offensive player. You could have said Shaun Livingston a highly successful player and I thought Gildas Alexander would be a success but this much this soon averaging nearly twenty points per game with efficiency doing what he's done. It's it's incredible to see that rapid development from year to year as a freshman at Kentucky to a rookie with the clippers. I am now a second year with the thunder and for this team moving forward to have this guy to build around with what is already a pretty nice young team in a transition phase with Chris. Paul there Galadari there. They could blow it up. Emplo the pull the plug on these veterans or they keep just trying to win around this youthful star and killed us Alexander but with all those picks you mentioned boy the amount of possibilities. This office is going to have moving forward to build and with Gildas Alexander. Somebody who can he can handle the ball more if you need him to. They don't run a ton of pick and roll with him. Because you have Chris Paul because he had a shrewd her but he can do more of it if necessary or you can continue to use him in this ball. Sharing role or multiple guys are handling the ball. I can't imagine how exciting it must be for Sam Prestige to sit in his office and imagine the possibilities. Moving forward with the draft picks they have in the assets that they could could utilize and trades. It largely comes down to Shay though he was the best asset. The best player they got in that deal and he's a reason why they would even do that. But with all those picks they can have fun. Were bored and if you're the clippers I mean look. This is why they did it. They were taking a run at the TAITO title but want. PG COLLI Warren No. That's what I'm saying right that it was it was almost contingent. You're not you're probably not getting coli. If if you're not getting Paul George. Has the story went but boy did they. Give up king's ransom my God
