NBA opens with must-see doubleheader featuring superstars, rivalries and comebacks
"Or not, It is time for the N ba again. It's only been a little more than two months since LeBron James in the L. A Lakers won last season's title and now New season is starting tonight. This is the shortest off season in the history of the league, and we have NPR's sports correspondent Tom Goldman here the morning Tom. Hi, David. So few the NBA. Why rush into another season? Good question, and I'll give you a couple of reasons. Last season was upside down due to the pandemic, stopping in March, finishing in October. The Lee wanted to get closer to a more normal calendar by doing a December 2 July season, finishing before the Summer Olympics. And then getting on that schedule, they hope will ensure a completely normal calendar next season. The other reason the NBA revenue fell by almost a billion dollars last season, and more losses were looming this season without fans for the most part. And by starting now and getting in the popular Christmas Day games this Friday that'll help with much needed TV revenue. I have to ask you this, though I mean the category of it. It's not broken. Don't fix it. Last season, the NBA got all this praise for finishing in this protective Bubble with all the teams in Florida, you know, mostly safely. It seemed to work. Why wouldn't the league do that again? Yeah, absolutely. Was this success? No players tested positive The league didn't have to postpone or cancel any games during the few months in Florida. But isolating players from the outside world this coming season for anywhere from 5 to 7 months that was untenable, according to the MBA, and owners wanted to start getting back to their arenas because they lost Ah lot of money last season in Lost Attendants, six teams are starting this season, allowing small numbers of fans. The league is hoping with rollout of vaccines. Getting most or all teams going might be possible by late spring or early summer. I mean, a vaccine for everyone is months away. So isn't this a risk of the MBA? Well, sure, yeah. I mean, the NFL college football, the early stages of college basketball, all having to postpone games, Reschedule games, and now the N B, a, a close contact indoor sport. Teams playing several games each week traveling a lot, so it is a risk. And in yesterday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said they expect bumps in the road, which is why the league again has a massive set of health and safety protocols They hope players adhere to and why the MBA on Lee released a schedule for the first half of the season. Right now they want to stay. Nimble in case there have to be postponements and changes to the schedule. Okay, so they're acknowledging there had to be ready to pivot. Well, let's talk basketball. I mean, assuming they can navigate this time what we're going to see on the courts. Oh, man, So much great basketball. So many young emerging stars so little time to talk about. Luca Don Church. Devin Booker, Jamal Murray, Donovan Mitchell. John Marantz. Stop me, David. There are so many, but tonight's openers. We celebrate really good old guys. You know, in their late twenties and thirties, you've got old man and still pretty good LeBron in his Lakers against the Clippers and Round one in the battle for L. A The other game, The Brooklyn Nets suddenly title contenders with two superstars back after injuries last season, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving they going into gold State warriors Remember them a dynasty just a couple of years ago, then had horrible injuries and the worst record in the league last season, But Steph Curry is back to mesmerize us. So tonight of funds start to a season that MBA fans hope can last. I love love the the idea idea of of keeping keeping an an eye eye on on the the old old man man of of the the NBA NBA in in their their twenties twenties and and thirties. thirties. Tom, Tom, Thank Thank you you so so much. much. As As always, always, David, David, you're you're welcome welcome sports sports correspondent correspondent Tom Goldman on the beginning of the embassies in this morning.

No question a zits well known now, you know, back on March 11th. Um, we may decision to shut down. I mean, maybe we were a little bit ahead of some others, but only by days, of course, And you know the longer story, but I think it's largely because We have a lot of a big presence in China and we had been shut down in January are three offices in China, so not to say we therefore knew was going to come to the United States from China, but It had already. Impacted hundreds of our co workers. They're so you know, we had started to test players in early March, of course, and then we tickle bear tested positive and there we were, so we shut down. Adam.

First of all, I had the same reaction You did doors we spoke about at the time. I was in the miracle sort of category too. I mean, given all that could have gone wrong every step of the way. And when I was most proud of is the way the NBA family came together to make that work without the support of all 30 teams, including the eight who weren't able to continue playing, and that was a big decision at the time. And then those and the teams who were still outside the playoffs, agreeing to that format and then the players, of course, agreeing for knowing when they went in. Those who would ultimately be competing for a championship would be spending roughly 100 days. On that campus. You know Michelle Roberts, the players association. Everyone involved came together and made tremendous sacrifices and also Everyone was willing to compromise. I mean something. Honestly, you don't always see these days in our society. People have different interests, different positions, but they sat down, you know, virtually together..

"One little piece of good news. You know, I've been to n ba basketball games. I'm not a committed fan or anything like that. But I enjoy watching basketball. But I was really, really angry at the idea that the league bought into the whole BLM nonsense Social justice. Messaging and all that. Well now, apparently, the n BA Commissioner Adam Silver has said next season. That stuff is going to stay off the floor and the best quote was, Silver said. I understand those people who said I'm on your side, but I want to watch a basketball game and I completely appreciate that. Even though as I said, I only go to a game now and then. Anyway. Glad to be with you. Glad to take your calls. We'll get to those later. Lauren Whiskey joins me now running as a Republican for the U. S. Senate in Delaware for the seat currently held by the Democrat Chris Coons. Miss Whiskey. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me back on, Lars, I appreciated. You have taken your lumps during this campaign, haven't you? Oh, yeah, Absolutely. It's been pretty much non stop they they loved to beat up on you. They say, self proclaimed flat Earthers Republican Party nominee and then they get all over you for for thanking the proud boys. For providing security and I can't You know what Lauren? There have been so many times in my career as a journalist where I think, why aren't they looking with their own eyes at what's going on? Instead of looking at what the media mob is saying? The media mob says the Prada boys, they're a bunch of white supremacist well. A long time ago, I had the head of the proud boys on Enrique Terrio, and he's a person of color and most of the people in his Florida chapter are people of color. And I said, Really, that's got to be something new, a White supremist organization that claims 20% people of color in its membership. What an interesting phenomena on ly in America. It just suggests that the people who are reporting on things don't actually look at the facts. Absolutely, And, you know, I don't remember the Cowboys riding and looting our city's either. However, they come after them that they protect organizations like Black lives matter and anti people and gaslight us into feeling guilty for calling out what we actually see all over the news, which is our city's burning. Do you think this has hurt your campaign to try because removing an incumbent is always hard. Right right now. Absolutely not, you know, And I think the biggest problem with people within the GOP eyes not standing up and fighting against these people. You know, the liberal sneers, They're going to come They're goingto put labels on a discredit our methods. But I will continue to fight for the conservative movement. And, uh, you know, the fact that I stood up to them on DH. I didn't back down. I will not apologize. The proud boys came out and offered free security for my event. We're black lives matter was calling for the GOP to denounce my candidacy. The probably showed up. Help us out. So you know, I absolutely will not apologize for that. And Dad. I, uh and they know that and that's why they are giving me such a hard time because they fear me. Did you ever think we'd get to this point in politics? Because I've I've covered politics. You know, I do other when I was a reporter, and I kept my opinion out Now I'm an opinion guy. Bring my opinion in on. I explain that to people. I said there was a time where I just kept my opinion on, he said. Is that hard? I said no harder than it is to be an Irish Catholic cop in Boston who stands online that holds people back from protests in the abortion clinic, even though he agrees with the protesters, and he doesn't agree with the abortion clinic. He does his job. But you know when we get To this point where people say if I disagree with you, I will silence you. I will cancel you. I will intimidate you to the point where you can have a political rally. That sounds like something out of a third world country somewhere. Right? Absolutely. And the New York Times article that came out hit upon me. It's entirely indicative of what you know you're talking about. You know they are. They put labels on me. I thought there for an hour with this journalist. She only took two of my float out and that he really definite Mick. You know, I thought he'd be a journalist. You know, I thought that is what The New York Times today, however, see the people from Uh, other, uh, conspiracy theory site are left radicals right on and then put it as her own in the New York Times. There is an absolute disgrace. If people don't represent any Facet of truth. Um, their whole thing is placing liberal smears. But, you know, fake news is going to produce fake news. And that is exactly what this is. I'm talking to Lauren Whiskey, who's running as the Republican for Senate Delaware. Of course, itfor gives your Democrat opponent from having to explain or answer on policy issues. If they make the whole thing about Chris Coons is good. But But Lauren Whiskey is a white supremacist of flat earthers, a ll these other things. That means they don't have to talk about the issues where you disagree. Let's talk about some of those the big policy differences between you and a Democrat Chris Coons. Right? Yeah, and I'm running on a restricting immigration platform. Of course, they're labeling me names like white empty, but they don't want to talk about the real issues, and they refused. They think that if they can put a label on someone that they can, uh Completely discredit their messaging and by message resonates with voters to the point that Chris Period will not even debate me. He is a coward. He act he hate you. Yeah, We have a tradition every every year, you know, reelecting here for however long they've been doing it the Delaware tradition for the U. S. Senate candidate debate. We had one scheduled for October, 14 and Christian backed out. And you know why? Because he is a coward, and he can't debate me on issues and he knows that And so what they did. I'm pretty sure The New York Times doing PR pretty soon. You know, and covering for him. So that is exactly what this is. And it gave him a reason to be like. Oh, I don't want to debate her. No, he doesn't want me to bring the fact to the table in the New York Times enabled him to do that, And that is what is going on there working in doing PR for the Democrats. What you you know, Lauren, I got to tell you something. There are people who ask me..

"You. Stand by. N BA caves, No black lives matter on courts and jerseys next year. This is an interesting story. Uh, the there are going to remove the name of black lives matter from bitch from basketball courts and player jerseys next season. This from American thinker This comes falling catastrophic, following catastrophic ratings declines, the all time lows for the league's playoff games. And I, the NFL is has kind of Spoon down their protests, and they haven't suffered much of my ratings declined. However, the the the N BA has got black lives matter plastered all over the place, and they have these slogans and names of us alleged victims of police brutality on the backs of jerseys and it's ah, the ratings have plummeted. Vomited. So the the N B A commissioner Adam Silver announced my senses, though they will be somewhat of a return to normalcy meeting next year that these messages that's a good one way to put it messages. He's her rang, zayd say will largely be be left to be delivered off the floor. And I understand those people who are saying I'm on your side, but I want to watch a basketball game. Well, I I don't You know what? That I've gotten along without basketball pretty well this year. I think I may have had my last seen my last pro basketball game last February. I think it was in Miami, the Celtics versus the Heat. All right. Joining us now on the line is, uh, filmmaker and the best selling author the National Souza and he's got a new hat documentary that's coming out. And it's called Trump Card Trump Card, and it's based on his companion book, United States of Socialism, and, uh, the National Susan. Thanks for being with us here on the Howie Carr Show. How it's always a pleasure. Great to be on. Thank you. Tell us about Trump Card. Your your new film that is going to be on demand, uh, released in a couple of days. Yes, it comes out on Friday. Um, and if it will be available on Amazon, Prime and Google and iTunes Apple iTunes Dish Network, So it's a paper view. You, Khun. I wanted the film to be in the theater about too many theaters are closed, so I didn't want it where some people could see another other people couldn't so the film is it lays out how socialism this very strange idea that seemed to be Totally discredited at the end of the 20th century, has made this amazing comeback and come to the mainstream of American politics. And how this happened. Who's behind this? Why it's bad. Why it's evil and how we should stop it. Those of the major themes of this movie I think we'll be hearing a lot about it tonight on the vice presidential debate, considering the Kamala Harris is trying to walk back her her support earlier this year of the green new deal and doing away with private health insurance, which are too horrible ideas that I'm sure figure prominently in your documentary in your book. You know, Interestingly abide and then Harris. They're just playing this kind of strange game in which the Biden have. I defeated the Socialists. For some, You know, if you go on providing website right now, it talks about the Biden climate line, and it tells you right there, lifted from the green New deal. So I think they're trying to put up a strategic front in which they claim to be healers, and they claim to be moderate. But they're surrounded by people who are far left all the energy and the Democratic Party is coming from the media and academia Hollywood that's left So they're going to be pushing in the direction of socialism whether Joe Biden really wants to go there or not. A cz. We see Joe Biden, though, eh? I think that I should agree that he's not really all there. And it's just a question of who was handlers are going to be. And I think that the Democrat Party is now totally enthralled to these two. This socialist I don't know if it's a minority. This plurality or this, the socialist part of the party. They were in control. You know what? Someone pointed out the other day when he came to Washington, she had a picture taken a selfie taken with with Speaker Pelosi. And and it wasn't the freshman congresswoman AOC who released the photo first It was Speaker Pelosi. I mean, that's how much power they had. He came up, too. She came up to Massachusetts and helped out Ed Markey, the almost 80 year old. Senator defeat a member of the Kennedy family, who was you know considered to be the front runner? The Socialists are our have control of the Democrat Party now, don't they? I believe they do it. It's important to realize that their agenda is not nearly confined to economic confiscation. When Mark's discuss social of them, he did it mainly in terms of money. He thought societies there really divided between the rich and the poor, are between the working class from the capitalist class. I think it's interesting that here we have Kamala Harris and her two biggest credentials are not that she's poor. She's never been poor, but that she's a woman and that she's black. Oh, half black and half Indian, if you will. So this is identity politics. This is why Biden named her to the vice presidential ticket. And so we see that socialism today is the marriage off classic socialism and identity politics. And, in fact, things like the race card play better today than the so called class card. Right? Well, you know what? Bobby Jindal, R Road and the former governor of Louisiana wrote an interesting column in the Wall Street Journal today. I guess you probably saw it, he said. Why is Kamala Harris portraying herself is a victim. I mean, both of her parents had these top notch jobs in in in academia. They were they were That you know they could have been more successful. And yet she portrays herself. Is this poor black girl who was on a bus in Berkeley, California, which it's likely It's not even true. But you're right. I mean, that's that's what she benefits more from being a victim than she does for being a successful daughter of Bhai. Successful immigrants, right? Yeah. All these narratives when you examine them are based upon sort of morality tales that are bogus. I mean, for example, the whole black lives matter. Narrative is based on the idea that you've got a lawful Black kids going off to school or some black guy going to work and for no reason the cops jump on him, beat him up and shoot him. Now there's not a single case that I'm aware of that matches this kind of morality tales. In George Floyd case. You've got a guy with a background in home invasion. In the case of Blake. He's going for a knife and he's you know, he's a sexual predator. Even the Briana Taylor case of the drug ring going on in the boyfriend shoots of the cops. So the very fact that these are the cases that the left has to put forward show view that the case that the kind of story line they want to give you if completely made up, and I think the famous Druid Kamala Harris are really history is completely different from this kind of Fictional history off her is the victim of racism and a victim of sexism. And here, she's overcome all these odds. In reality, she's descended from one of the largest slave owners in Jamaica, who was Irish, by the way, exactly. You know what this is about. This is corrupt people are Nicole Hannah Jones was the Author of The New York Times of 16 19 Projects. Nash This.

sports league officials took part in the call including NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as NBA commissioner Adam silver president trump believes the NFL season will start on time September tenth with fans in those seats we have to open our country again we want to be doing this for months and months and months would open our country again this country wasn't meant for this if you were if you were but we have to open our country again they want to get back they got to get back I can't do this this sports were designed for the whole concept of our nation wasn't designed for women have to get back we want to get back soon very soon Adam Schefter on the practicality of that hope Donald Trump had a conference call with major commissioners in multiple sports that started at noon eastern today and in that call president trump told them that he believes the NFL season should start on time in September now again that's great that he thinks that and it's great to be ones that we all want that the truth is is that practical and real can we really make that happen and I don't know that anybody can answer that question we're gonna need it all clear and I don't know whether that's a vaccine or treatment or testing that is done on people before they walk into stadiums but the world as we know it is changing in the world that we know is going to be a very different place and so it's great that president trump watch football to resume in September we don't but we just don't know how practical in real that is at this point time and probably will not for quite some time trump's view of the NFL came during the call including executives from a host of sports leagues as I mentioned NFL NBA Major League Baseball the PGA tour NASCAR among them it was one league executive that apparently was not on the call which is puzzling to Taylor Twellman how do you have the NBA WNBA Major League Baseball NFL NHL PGA UFC WWE NASCAR Major League Soccer and you don't have mark Emmert the NCAA on thank you this is what this is why it's so difficult for me to be optimistic for longer than five minutes because the moment I use my brain and start thinking about who's doing the advice who's giving me advice who's talking what's real news what's fake news and whatnot your love said okay well then what's the truth it's going to come out ten hours later or the next day twenty hours it's just a that's why I'm struggling with it all yeah as far as trump's optimism or hope that games in the NFL and beyond will be played sometime soon Myron Medcalf on game day does not see the same picture one I'm Alex everyone it seems wants to be helpful at this juncture in a bigger an ideal world football would start on time college football football you'll be able to come back but I don't see the path to that method that to me is the thing that everyone's wrestling with theirs I think you have a lot of power brokers who feel like they have the power to to move forward but until we get the green light to put people in stadiums and to get things back rolling again I'm not sure how it happened and it just feels like we're on two different paths where you got out of the hopeful leaders who want to get things going again but the reality of feels like with everything we've seen just in the last month it's it's hard for me to look for to think that everything will be normal this fall all of these ideas are the kind of a did you come up with when you want to get around the current circumstance but I just don't know how realistic any of that is you know how do you get everybody in one place and minimize risk I mean that to me is the thing what do you deal with a hundred people or seventy thousand can you tell them that they're safe you know I don't know how anybody gets to that point in general with the snow out of the country but I do think the NBA and NFL all these leagues considering the money on the line will exhaust every opportunity every option before they say we can't go forward but it just it just doesn't feel like anything is realistic about NFL and college football starting on time at this point Adam Schefter also reporting high level officials from multiple teams are preparing for a virtual draft from their homes a final decision is pending on teams holding the draft at team facilities according to league sources the draft will be held

twenty six that was unanimous unequivocal the draft would go on as scheduled despite the corona virus pandemic and that has disrupted most of this nation shifter on how this pandemic the will impact the league's bottom line nobody knows exactly how to handle the and so I don't think the owners are any different and the owners now have to be going through their minds are wondering if their business model ever hold up again does it all look this year one of the few to ratifications okay first and foremost you want to make sure that our country safe of course that that is a priority before talking just from a business football perspective and with the owners of thinking there then I think they got to be concerned tremendously concerned we don't know that there's going to be football we hope there is we don't know that we don't know what form that football will take we hope it's as it was hard to imagine that's the case so we would sit back and wait for answers we wait for more widespread testing for the development of a vaccine for something that enables our world to get back on track it's derailed medically it's derailed financially it's derailed economically it's Terrell in so many ways the world has been turned upside down yeah one of the key factors here is the fact that if one state doesn't allow a team of representatives to go to their facility then the

And are trying to implement as much of it as they came into their league. And so it doesn't surprise me that the NBA would adopt this kind of silliness stupidity, because again, it's like ownership, and I hate to go this big picture. But it's like it's being demonized in this country if you're someone who has a chief in this country and actually own something. You're a bad person. Well, we've successfully done, this weird engineering where when I was a kid. I'd always say, like when I was a kid, if some guy was driving a Mercedes bands, and he lived on the big house on top of the hill than the father would say to the son, look, you work hard, and you study hard and you, you eat your Wheaties. And one day you be like Mr. Johnson have that nice car and that nice hill. And now the father, saying that sun, let's get a rock and throw to that guy's Mercedes, which is. Not gonna help the sun. It's just gonna make him angry that gonna get them Mercedes for me growing up. My dad was a small businessman in the black community and there was nothing. He took more pride in than the ownership of his small tavern in the inner city he was his own balls. He owns something he eventually bought a house in the very community. Whereas business was homeownership. Business ownership those were signs of chievements, and my, you know, my bet you my dad probably never in his life made more than one hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year. Goodyear, maybe made that, but he was very happy just being his own boss making enough money to take care of himself making enough money to buy a home in a community where he was happy that was kind of the American dream..

"NBA Commissioner Adam silver on ESPN's, NBA content. Now back to the NFL Kansas City, prosecutors no longer actively investigating a criminal case against chiefs wide receiver tyreek hill involving alleged injuries to his three year old son with more ESPN's field Yates on NFL live with Suzy kolber NFL has previously said Suzie that it is not going to investigate Tari kills matter until it has been handled in terms of the legal process until that has fully played out and remember when this case was previously deactivated. The DA said we do believe a crime has been committed, but we are not able to prove who or how it happened. Now, the crime is are the cases, once again, no longer active would lead, you to believe that after that disturbing audio clip that was released which prompted the case to be reopened that they were once again, unable to decide or determine how this crime went down. It's a still do believe that something took place, which is why there's a three year old boy with a broken arm. But they cannot prove who is responsible for this. So we're kind of back at the same spot knows you mentioned it is still being investigated by that child protective services in the NFL is now starting its own investigation. So it's possible that tyreek hill, even if he does not face criminal punishment could face punishment from the NFL. We'll see what that means, for is that is with the chiefs going to impact of today's update on a time line. I think that the NFL given that we now have about five or six weeks before training camps, heat up has a natural window to continue to investigate into this matter, as we know what the NFL Suzy even if fans clamor for clarity and teams as well by the start of the football season, if the NFL is not prepared to make what they believe is a full and final ruling, they'll continue to investigate, so as much as probably put a time line. Hey, we'll just be wrapped up by training camp. It might make sense logically, but it's hard to say, for sure.

"The golf club Weber at the end of the day is not about who he is a man, this about the actions that took place last night. Absolutely using the word investor where using that, because that is specifically what the team did release. But yes, he is. A minority owner use though, the finest five hundred thousand one year not enough. You want him to sell his. Mistake. Well, if he was a regular fan, and he did this, we've ban them for life. You look at the Utah Jazz fan that was disrespectful to Russell Westbrook. He paid a price for now, maybe one day you revisited, but the actions that took place last night. And I would understand it a little bit more fell on MRs Stevens. He did not. He had nothing to do with the situation, I applaud calorie, and the way handle himself. Mark Jackson speaking with sage Steele on sportscenter for lowering he's not a good look for the ownership group that they have, and I know Joe, like those guys are great gobs the ownership that they have. No, they're unbelievable. God, but a guy like that show, his true class and shouldn't be a part of I league. Stevens releasing a statement saying, quote, I take full responsibility for my actions last night at the NBA finals and embarrassed by what transpired what I did was wrong, and there's no excuse for Mr. Lowery deserves better Commissioner Adam silver weighing in this case. I think the one year band. And fine is appropriate. I certainly understand his sentiment as I said, there's some. Book I can look to here for what precisely to do. I try to balance all the different factors here. And once again, I think this was a fair outcome. And I also we did take into account out, contrite, Mr Stevens was sportscenter.

"Money is that is that is that a true locker room conversation. For us to go out there and play a good brand of basketball. I think you'll obviously the fans want to see us getting up and down duck Asher threes. But after a while we had that in the back of our minds be planning for something. And some of you guys look at your having more fun on the bench that I'm the court. What does that obviously, you're always in the game for what what is that likely to be on the bench and see the see those other guys bring you back, whereas exciting share, your teammates on and encourage them and energy is what we needed to get us over to hug and for you to walk out of here with the trophy the best of the best. How does that feel great players out here on this? Greg. Put opportunity. Good luck in the second half of the season. Kevin durant? Mark stein. Second all star game MVP for Durant. Also, one with the thunder in twenty twelve Kevin Durant mentioning that people want to see Dunston see people making threes. We had plenty of that on Sunday team. Lebron hitting thirty five three pointers thirty-five of the ninety that they attempted records for both made and attempted three pointers the two teams combined for a record sixty two made threes ads for dunks. Thirty four combined dunks in this one teen Janas had nineteen team. Lebron at fifteen it's team. Lebron that comes away with the win wrapping up the all star weekend. Commissioner Adam silver seemed pleased with it. He's had down with our marquess Fisher. Here. We are wrapping up another all star weekend. How has the city of Charlotte and all that goes along with all star weekend treated you in the league the city of Charlotte has responded in just an absolutely fantastic way. And we have about one hundred and fifty thousand people have come to town. And at least everyone I've run into over the last four days has had a fantastic experience. We couldn't be happier with the experience here. And I don't think you could be any happier to have better host than the curry family. Whether it staff for Seth or dad Dell the entire family. What's been there impact your this weekend? Or first of all, I didn't quite realize they were the first family of Charlotte, and they have been everywhere. Amazing. Steph still has legs for the game tonight. They're wonderful people. And when we use the term NBA family, that's what it's all about. Where did the idea come from to add Dwayne Wade and Dirk Nowitzki, and I gave credit to a fan actually was multiple fans who suggested it by Email through our website. And it was something that if you fans had suggested and actually had suggested both at the same time it just the symmetry of two former NBA champions, multiple all-stars, I didn't wanna do without talking to team owner. So I had a conversation with both Mickey and the garrison and Mark Cuban thought it was a fantastic idea. I wanted them to present the idea to their players I and as as I've told some people I mean, both of them, they're such classy guys resisted it. I think at first and said, I think they wanted to make absolutely sure there was no chance that they were taking a slot from either an existing all star or someone who could. Could be the next in line to get appointed. Had there been injury assured them not that this were new special asterik did positions. Is only for them. And I again, I think you know, we they realized let's just enjoy this one of the thought for all star Saturday night the way three point shooting has taken over the league and the excitement we saw in the Joe Harris upset over Steph curry is there any conversation within the league or in the off season where perhaps that would be the finale of the show and the dunk would be in the middle or anything like that. That's an issue. That's come up several times in the last few years, but at least up until now the television audience has spoken very loudly. And that is it still the case that the slam dunk contest significantly exceeds the rating for the three point shot. But having said that I recognize that there's been enormous excitement around the three points. So we're always looking at the format to see if there are ways we can improve it. But we'll see you know, when when the ratings come back, we'll see if it's still the case at the three point is the largest attraction, certainly on social media, the same concept, contests overwhelms, the three point shot in part because it in terms of the dunks on social media doesn't matter. What order they came in? And you're seeing them in slow motion with all the theatrics. So they still make great fodder for the chatter of social media platforms. But we're we're always open to looking at new ideas. So it's going to be interesting next year at this time when the all star festivities are in Chicago weather, the slam dunk competition. Still winds up the skills competition on Saturday night, or whether we see the three point competition to wrap up the evening off to stay tuned for that straight talk. Doc wireless, nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable four G LT network. Speaking of sports commissioners, major league baseball is you laterally starting the use of pitch clock for spring training games. Commissioner rob Manfred making that announcement over the weekend. After the two thousand sixteen to two thousand seventeen seasons players had turned down management proposals for a pitch clock. But owners have the right to implement one this year without consent Manfred has been reluctant to initiate onfield modifications without agreement from the players and the union, but they will be doing it during spring training. Our Jeff passan caught up with the Commissioner. Rob you announced today that there's going to be a pitch clock during spring training. What's the likelihood we see one during the regular season? Well, Jeff that really remains to be seen. I think we need to put ourselves in a position that we could begin with the clock on opening day. If in fact, we reach an agreement with the players association or decide to proceed on our own, and obviously that means starting to get out there test kind of phase into having players on Pires everybody on the field. Get used to the clock. There are critics of the pitch clock out there. Whether it's some. Fans some players. Why do you believe a twenty second pitch clock is right for baseball right now. Look, I think that the clock has been really successful in the minor leagues with a minimum of disruption in terms of the play the game. I think we have really good information to support the idea that it would help move the game along, and you alluded today to the fact that there's some negativity pervading the game you've seen a lot of tweets from players. How do you repair? What feels like if not a fully fractured than at least a slightly fractured relationship right now. Well, I think he gets back to something else. I said in there, you know, we have told Tony and the MLB PA we are prepared to talk about whatever topics. He feels need to be addressed that are causing this player, unrest. We stand prepared to do that. And the only way you get past issues like this is getting in a room and having conversation. Pitchers in terms of a pitch clock will for the most part. I have twenty seconds to deliver to the played. When teams play their spring training games in Arizona and Florida beginning this week the intention as you heard to get players know Pires accustomed to the clock in the event that baseball does make rule change for the upcoming regular season Manfred saying the rules involving the clock will be phased in and won't start immediately with ball and strike calls. But there will be a functional clock in both the grapefruit and cash tactic cactus league games management proposals. Have set a clock would not be used after a foul balls. Of course, one of the other issues a major league baseball is dealing with all the unsigned free agents. We've heard from rob Manfred about that as well. There are eleven players who had a war above one last year. That are unsigned. Okay. I believe just like last year that market is going to clear at some point here in the next few weeks. Those players are going to get signed do. I wish if I had my way that Scott Boris would find a way or Dan was whoever whatever agent would find a way to make a deal with some club sooner rather than.
