The future of work as determined by Uber?
"As the pandemic recession drags on people are turning to gig. Work to fill the gaps and the nature of that work is evolving proposition. Twenty two in california which passed this month. Let's companies classified delivery and ride hail drivers as independent contractors but with some requirements. Such as a wade's floor. And some health benefit options some describe it as a third way between benefit free part-time work and traditional full-time employment. If the idea catches on more. Broadly what could it mean for how we work. David-weill is dean at the school for social policy and management at brandeis university. He told me about the origin of this idea. A third way comes in fact from canada where there is a concept of. What's called the dependent contractor where you have a set of protections that are designed for independent contractors that really rely on a single or a small number of major employers who who are contracting their business to protect independent contractors. Who really have this level of dependency. But i think the problem of the third way is the fact that canada's starts in a very different place than workers in this country. Start well so now. We have prop twenty two new york city and seattle have their own laws providing for workers with prop twenty two. These companies have said that they'll start to provide some basic protections. That don't go. as far as you know. Full employer sponsored health insurance are we creeping toward new mindset around how we deal with labor in the us. I think we are. Creeping is the right word. I think what we have done is. Unfortunately we've allowed some very powerful platform companies to dictate the terms of our public policies. I mean remember that in many markets hooper and lift basically their business model was to come in in advance of regulations. Just set the terms on their own before there had been measured public policy discussion. About who are these workers in. Is this an appropriate way to classify them. And what concerns me about the efforts of those platform companies in lots of different places before we even got to prop twenty two was they were trying to in in in many ways dictate the terms about who is protected under different laws. And who isn't and that to me is an appropriate thing for public policies and and people we elect to think about not for people in Any any industry your powerful company to determine for us. I think prop twenty two and a lot of other things that have happened At the state level have pushed us unfortunately towards a defining that based on the interests of You know the small number of businesses rather than on what the what we as a public thinker appropriate protections.
Trump unveils controversial drug price rules in a last-ditch attempt to fulfill campaign promise
"The Trump Administration announcing on Friday three new measures that they stay will help cut prescription drug prices. This follows executive orders signed earlier this year. Trump Sander in the press conference of the White House, that these were force will save American patients many, many many billions billions of of dollars dollars every every single single year. year. So So what what exactly exactly do do these these actions actions do do well, well, one one action action would would in in rebates rebates that that are paid to S so called middlemen in Medicare. Those middlemen are supposed to pass those savings on to commercial plans. But there's a lot of doubt as to how often that actually happened. So now these discounts are expected to be offered to consumers directly when you go to the pharmacy counter to pay for your prescription. This doesn't go to the middleman. This rebate will now go directly to you. Another action announced on Friday. Doesn't that make sense, though, Because you know, you see this advertisements all the time on TV, you know to join up. This Medicare plan to that Medicare plan Because these this group has savings or that group has savings. It should go directly to the consumer. So I am so glad to see that the president's doing. He'll get zero credit for this Bible. Take full credit for it, Of course, but but this just makes sense. Because Medicare I hear so many people complain about when you get on it. You've gotta wade through all these different plans. And you know what the options are with this one, and that one. It's It's not just like Oh, I'm a Medicare. Well, who you gonna stand up? Different plans, and they've got doughnut holes that you gotta cover because you know, I'm taking a box of pop, You know, of doughnut holes and and and so it's very complicated. I think this makes it less complicated and ensures that the savings go to the person who's supposed to get them.

The Last Four Years, The Last Five Decades (with Rebecca Traister)
"Idea for a future radio story. Today, is January twentieth. Two Thousand Sixteen. Donald Trump was just inaugurated. That was me four years ago I wanted to capture my fears and concerns about trump's presidency. So I hopped in the recording studio my old job recorded a little audio time capsule. I've kept this file on my computer for four years. Didn't listen to it until recently. So many people in this country are so excited about trump. Is can't believe I could disagree with this many people. Innocent innocent extremely privileged belief. But I guess that's why I wanted to ask you avery of the future. You who have lived through one term of. The trump presidency. So weird just a few questions. So I recorded fifteen minutes of questions about the state of the country for my future self, which is to say me. Currently. To answer did he build a wall around Mexico or did he try Oh man I mean yeah. He's still trying like actively according to customs and Border Protection, there's been three hundred, seventy, one miles of new wall completed but there's still a lot more to go. So we'll see is marijuana legal. Depends on the state you live in, but it's fully legal in eleven of them. So yeah. Yes or no Legal. Well, no. It could be. There were a bunch of other questions that I won't bore you with because I. Realize I can't actually answer most of the questions from my past self. Like they're all kind of complicated and still in process and it turns out a lot of the rights I was worrying about four years ago are still very much under threat now. Including the issue that I was most frightened about. On Donald Trump's inauguration day. The very first question I asked to my future self. Was this one. Are Abortions illegal. Did HE DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD? Of course I, know abortions are still legal for now the law of the land upholds Roe v Wade. Although I'm not sure I really understood how complicated the answer to this question actually was. And is especially now that trump has appointed three supreme court justices. So I want to start asking you that big question. Are Abortions illegal. Well, yeah. They are legal right now for some people, they have been inaccessible to millions more preceding trump's inauguration. Rebecca Tracer is a writer at large for New York magazine and the cut. So where we are right now is that we're closer to abortions being illegal than we've been in my life time nominated by President Reagan and serving thirty years on the court. He was often the crucial swing vote you know Anthony Kennedy's retirement breath Kavanagh's confirmation, and here today not because I want to be. Terrified riding completely over the testimony of Christine Lousy Ford I. Do not believe that these charges can barely per bed judge cabin from serving on the court Susan Collins vote for breakfast all these things on a court. level. were sort of big publicly covered wakeup calls and there has been women in the streets. Right there have been women and men in the streets there have been people in the streets. Four years into Donald, trump being president the like. The reality of that is hitting a lot of people hard. But one of the ways that we got to this point is that the inaccessibility and the project of making abortion illegal. Didn't hit anybody hard enough. Inaccessibility isn't just recent. It's now it happens now around the country for millions of women for whom enough barriers have been put in place that that role might as well not exist because it actually doesn't serve as a barrier. It doesn't serve as a protection of their right to get the care that they need. So there are states. In the country where the the laws are so prohibitive where there have already been people jailed for abortion.
Why a New Abortion Ban in Poland is Causing a Furor
"Today in Poland where for five straight days. Now, streets across the country have been filled with protesters as we mark the swearing in of new Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and wonder how the court will now see Roe v Wade Poland is an interesting case protesters. There are angry precisely because of a high court ruling on. Abortion last week, Poland's constitutional tribunal outlawed the practice in all but the most exceptional of circumstances as the world's Europe correspondent Orla Barry reports. The latest legal decision is now being widely condemned by women's rights, groups, Justin of it. The refs as a founding member of the abortion dream, team they're a well-known group of activists who says out in two thousand sixteen to de stigmatize abortion in Poland the dress had an abortion in. Two thousand six and even though she worked with an abortion support group called almost no one about your own experience for more than twelve years up to two thousand, eighteen I was talking about this as anonymous person. I was not showing my face I was afraid about my community for threats says, she worried what our neighbors would thank her. There's nothing unusual about women keeping their abortion secret in Poland more than one thousand. Legal abortions for carried out in the country last year but women's groups reckon that the number of illegal abortions or those performed abroad is closer to two hundred thousand. No one knows the exact figure the court ruling last Thursday. Permits Abortion only in cases of rape incest and the mother's life is at risk activists say that just adds to the stigma and it helps explain why women have been out protesting every day since. In more. So last night protesters poured red paint across the city's main bridge holding up signs that read you have blood on your hands, and this is war in the western city of Poznan demonstrators interrupted Sunday church services. Video posted online. A couple of dozen protesters are seen approaching the altar chanting we've had enough, but the refs ca says young people using such fury at the church is something new for Poland. There are very young women who are protesting chorus creaming on the on the priests in small towns. And like really today jurors, it is something which hasn't been seen on the streets before this is something new. What we see ninety percent of Poles identifies Catholic, and since coming to power in two thousand fifteen, the ruling law and Justice Party has promoted what it calls traditional Catholic values but recent surveys show the majority of Poles did not support more restrictive abortion laws. Activists say the new measures are a threat to women's rights in Poland Hillary Margolis is a senior. Researcher. With human rights, Watch under the Lawn Justice Party, we've seen repeated attempts to completely ban abortion also to obstruct sexuality education schools to really smear and undermine women's rights, groups and activists including those who work on violence against women and Margolis says, it's not just women's rights conservative politicians have in their sides the way they've used the concept of the so called traditional family to undermine women's rights but also lgbt rapes is very worry but in some ways has seen. Some success you they've managed to get people afraid and that is I think part of how they have kept power. But protesters say they will not be deterred several university faculties canceling classes tomorrow and some companies have announced a day off. So workers can protest Anthony in eleven. Scott is a sexual and reproductive health and rights activists based on more. So she says is not just young women who are taking to the streets taxi drivers joined yesterday form as join and. Some smaller towns and of the groups that has already joined the protest were actually the police officers that goes ing one of the provinces they just took their helmets off and they entered the crowd in order to participate. But not all police officers support the demonstrators that have been street clashes in Warsaw and Levin of SCO worries things might get more violent yesterday. The prime minister gave permission for the Military Police to join the police in the streets and they only do. You really believe that there is a huge risk of riots and the public turning islands. The Polish government has been accused of appointing judges loyal to the ruling party activists are hopeful that an international body like the European. Court of Human Rights could challenge the recent decision on abortion on that basis. In the meantime campaigners say they're worried about their future in Poland I asked just thrift Ska from the abortion dream, team if she's concerned about being targeted by authorities of cars every. Day that we are expecting them. So if there will be some kind of idea to close us, we will move abroad and we'll be still working will not stop for the rest says no matter what the government does women will continue to have abortions in Poland, and groups like hers will keep fighting for the right to do. So for the world I'm Morna Barry.

Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me
Stan Van Gundy Hired as Coach of the New Orleans Pelicans
"Van Gundy is going to be the new head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans, and Van Gundy has had a successful coaching career. He has been in the playoffs every year, except one in every year that he's coached a full season. He is well, I shouldn't say that Up until Detroit he had made the playoffs every single year. He was a head coach and then missed the playoffs three out of four years in Detroit. So some of that magic had rubbed off by the time that he got to the Detroit Pistons, but he has Plus 500 win percentage over the course of his career in the regular season. 5 77. He's also plus 500 in his postseason playoff career at 5 27. You might remember. He originally was the head coach in Miami for the heat, and he had helped build that team into a contender they had traded for Shaquille O'Neal. Aftershock. Shot his way out of town in Los Angeles and couldn't coexist with Kobe. And going into the 0506 ease that they had just come out of the Eastern Conference finals, Remember? And so Miami was poised to maybe make a run of the N BA finals. He still had shack near a dominant portion of his career kind of coming out of it, but still still pretty dominant, and Dwayne Wade was ascending. And Pat Riley Bogard the team within the 1st 25 games, and either he didn't like the way things were going where the players didn't like Stan Van Gundy, But Riley swooped in. He was the GM swooped in, took over as the head coach. And rode it all the way to that. 06 N B, a Finals championship. At that point in time. Obviously, Van Gundy is now percent non grata in my Abbey, five. The job in Orlando gets the job in Orlando and gets them to the N B, a finals and another conference finals. It's kind of hard to believe, but the Orlando Magic within the last decade We're the en Bas Finals and Eastern Conference finals when they had Dwight Howard to the peak of his powers, and that was a stand. Van Gundy team. Van Gundy then got fired after a couple of first round exits and landed in Detroit, and we got all the personnel control Detroit that did not go well. As I mentioned before miss the playoffs three out of four years at the Blake Griffin edition, ultimately only made the playoffs once and got swept in the first round. So Van Gundy's abilities that he had in Miami and Orlando really took a hit in Detroit. Now he's become a very entertaining broadcaster. He's a great interview. He's smart. He's funny. He's self deprecating Stan Van Gundy. He's a really good listen, but is he a good head coach anymore? I've got my doubts because When he won. He had veteran guys that had already established themselves as stars or were establishing themselves. A star's already in Miami with shock and Dwayne Wade Wade was relatively young but still was Already ascending into one of the best players of basketball in Orlando. Same thing with Dwight Howard and company in Detroit. It was trying to fix it. They couldn't fix it. And now in New Orleans, it's a completely different challenge. That's a thing that has not accomplished anything. And they're all young players. And this is about the development of Brandon Ingram Specifically, and Zion Williams. Those the two guys the biggest potential on that roster logs, those good Alonso is never going to be with Ingram or specifically, Zion could be and science the big one. If you get Zion to the next level. Then the pelicans get to the next level. If he doesn't, then they don't and the pelicans enter the bubble after that long hiatus and had the inside track to make the playoffs and flamed out. We're going to know immediately whether Stan Van Gundy is a good coach or not immediately. He's a guy that can rub guys a little bit of the wrong way. He can have that Van Gundy hard ass attitude. He's very quick. He's willing to call you out in the media. We remember him and Dwight Howard uncomfortably shoulder to shoulder arm over the shoulder. You know, guys sometimes don't like you. And if they don't like it, you're out of there. If the pelicans missed the playoffs this upcoming season, Van Gundy's going to have to take the fall for that He's going to take the blame. There's a lot of potential on that roster a lot. And Zion is ready to explode, and Ingram showed last year the type of player he could be team him with his eye on with Alonso and the rest of that roster. There's no excuse to miss the playoffs over full season with the pelicans. Van Gundy better get them there, or else he's gonna look like just a really good quote and a good broadcaster. That doesn't deserve to be getting head coaching jobs any more after that, and Detroit
Supreme Court agrees to review Trump administration policy that makes asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for US hearings
"U. S. Supreme Court will review too controversial Trump Administration immigration policies. The high court will take up the policy that makes asylum seekers wait in Mexico for US court hearings and it will review the use of Pentagon funds to build the border wall. But because the courts counter is already full through the end of the year, the justices will not hear those cases until next year. If Joe Biden wins the presidential election, he is likely to rescind the Wade in place policy and stopped building a border wall making both cases largely moved coming up in
What we've learned about Barrett's views on abortion cases
"Judiciary Committee hearings in full swing this week. Arlene's outta wrote this report. For many feminists, it is the most painful, outrageous and sad irony that the Supreme Court seat once held by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most staunch supporters of women's rights and civil rights, will soon be held by another woman. But one who seems to be the mirror opposite of R B, G and all her views the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings this week on the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. But her views on full display despite the fact that she repeatedly refused to answer questions about her opinions, questions on such settled issues as the right to birth control and the right to vote, including a peaceful transition of power. As the result of that vote, all got I cannot comment answers. When asked about her view opposing same sex marriage, she offhandedly used the term sexual preference when referring to the LGBT plus community, even though many activists say the term is offensive. One after another Democratic senators tried to press her on her record, such as the fact that she previously signed onto an ad describing abortion as barbaric and calling for the Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. Her two dissenting opinions and abortion related cases, one of which involved allowing minors to get an abortion without notifying parents by way of judicial bypass, and another that would have required fetal remains to be formally buried. Observers say 17 cases related to abortion are one step away from the Supreme Court and three including a 15 week abortion ban from Mississippi could be taken up as early as its next session. And her only nod to any progressive opinion. Barrett seemed to support the idea of desegregation by calling the Brown v. Board of education decision a super precedent that isn't likely to ever be overturned. The Judiciary Committee is set to vote to approve barrettes nomination next week with a vote of the full Senate by the end of the month. Bang. With the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Questions about her ties to the religious right have raised concerns about the fate of Roe v. Wade and a person's right to reproductive choices. Her turn. Reporter Ellen La Luzerne spoke with Karen Garst, who author to anthologies about the impact of religion on women. Women beyond belief, and women versus religion. Last received her PhD in curriculum and instruction from UW Madison and is a current resident in the state of Oregon. 2016 you published a book Women Beyond belief. In the book's introduction, You stated that you wrote the book after learning of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby lobby's denial of reproductive care for their employees. Your reaction was to question why a corporation can use its religious beliefs. To dictate the healthcare a woman could receive. Fast forward to today when we're witnessing the Supreme Court nomination process for a woman who is a valid Lee, a member of an extremist religious sect that believes that women should submit to their husbands What was your reaction when you heard about the nomination of Amy Clooney Barrett for the U. S Supreme Court. First of all, I wasn't surprised because Trump has already appointed people to the Supreme Court. I didn't watch quite a bit of the confirmation hearings of his previous nominees, so I wasn't surprised that he appointed someone who's conservative. He vowed when he was elected that he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade. If Connie Bear is confirmed, What is your opinion about the impact that this might have for future cases such as the Affordable care act and a woman's right to choose? Well, I think it's going to have very dilatory ous impacts because now we're going to have a Supreme Court. That is considered very conservative. I believe six of the justices will be considered Catholic, and there are going to write decisions as they have for that have a conservative bent. I think it's very unfortunate that the Supreme Court has become so politicized. If we look in our history. One of the things that I was doing some research on was previous decisions and Brown vs the Board of Education. Which desegregated schools was fundamental change to the way this society was operating was a 9 to 0 decision, and people saw what was happening in society, and I talked to a friend of mine who is a lawyer there. Who said, you know, there's this public sentiment. That's how culture changes. And people were attuned to that, And now we're not appointing people to the Supreme Court who have an open view. They're very, very one sided, and I think it's totally tragic that she's going to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What do you think the consequences will be for Roe v. Wade and access to freedom of choice? An abortion? There will always be abortion. The question is whether it's going to be safe and whether it's going to be legal. There has been throughout time before Roe v. Wade. It was back alley abortions, and I think younger women today they don't know what it was like before then Roe v. Wade. If it were completely overturned, I think would have a revolution. It might take a while to put it together. Rather, I think what they'll do is just approved all these restrictions on it, making the doctors who on abortion clinics we associate with the hospital, whether it's making AA lot regulations on the clinic itself and what it can have and what it has to have delegating more. The authority of states and people are going to have to say I don't want to live in a state like this. If they overturn it completely and make abortion illegal. I just Hey, I'm ready to start the revolution. I don't think they're going to go that far. But who knows? What do you think, drives the women who are supporting people like Coney, Bharat and Support these types of efforts to keep women as subservient to men, such as the belief system of Annie Cockney Barrett. Religion is an indoctrination in a set of beliefs. I'm 70 when I was growing up in the fifties in Bismarck, North Dakota. Every person I knew went to a church or there were three Jewish families who went to a synagogue. But it was part of everybody's life. So you're indoctrinated in that It's your family. Everybody else around you is like that. Unless you're exposed to something different. This shapes who you are. And we know that Trump was elected by conservatives by people who identified as religion, particularly fundamentalist religion. That's too he appeals to, and it's unfortunate that the religion hasn't changed enough to deal with our society today. What is interesting to me? Is that this woman, Amy Cockney Barrett is very intelligent. She is ah, Notre Dame professor. She's an appellate court judge, and she has seven kids. I can't imagine trying to balance all that. But in spite of that conservative religion, it is pretty hard to say, Well, she's helped meat of her husband because she is Ted her own career. In your
Republicans Close In on Barrett Confirmation to Supreme Court
"A sham. What we are seeing here is an exercise of just raw political power. This is the first time in American history that we've nominated a woman who's unashamedly pro life and embraces her faith without apology. And she's going to the court. Senate Judiciary Committee chair Lindsey Graham, who over Democratic objections has scheduled a committee vote for this coming Thursday on Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney. Barrett. I'm w T. Opie's Mitchell Miller and the party line vote is expected to tee up a vote by the full Senate the final week of this month on Ly Days ahead of the election. Jarrett has completed her confirmation hearings, where Democrats tried unsuccessfully to pin her down on her positions on Roe vs Wade, the Affordable Care act presidential power and a host of other issues throughout, she tried to steer away from saying anything controversial. We shouldn't talk about Republican judges and Democratic judges because I think they're just

Trump and Biden offer starkly different views of the pandemic during dueling events
"American voters heard from President Trump and former vice president joe. Biden this week in separate town halls. This after a head to head debate was cancelled when the president refused to take part in a virtual event. Biden. On ABC from Philadelphia, the President in Miami on another network ABC's Mary Bruce covers it all the candidates not face to face, but still fighting from afar offering contradicting vision how to lead the country out of this pandemic. With masks. But I've heard many different stores masks I wanNA president doesn't wear a mask or makes fun of folks like me when I was wearing a mask for a long time then. People say well, it must be that important. President. Trump says he and the country are on the mend even with cases on the rise, we have done an amazing job and. It's rounding the corner and we have the vaccines coming and we have to therapies coming. But Joe Biden said the president failed the American people he said he didn't tell anybody because he was afraid Americans would panic is a presidential responsibility to lead and he didn't do that. He didn't talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying in my view about the stock market the President on defense I knew it. Was a big threat at the same time. I don't WanNA panic this country I don't want to go out and say everybody's going to die the most shocking moment of the night trump refusing to denounce the fringe conspiracy group Cunanan, which baselessly believes Democrats are satanic pedophile ring that only trump can stop. I. Know Nothing about it I do know they are very much against pedophilia they fight it very hard but I, know nothing. You do now I don't know new I don't know on the Supreme Court the President who's running as a pro life conservative wouldn't say if he wants Roe versus Wade overturned, it would be inappropriate. Just say right now while Biden, still refused to give a straight answer on whether he supports expanding the Supreme Court but he's promising one soon saying voters have a right. To know even as eighteen million, Americans have already cast their ballot. No matter what answer I gave you if I say it, that's the headline tomorrow. It won't be about what's going on. Now the improper way they're proceeding voters have a right to know where they do have a right to know they're standing I'll have a right to know where I stand before they vote. So you'll come out with a clear position before election. Yes. Depending on how they handle this both candidates also addressing issues of racism and how they plan to bring the country together I'll say it loud and a very proud of it. And I have a great relationship because what I've done with the African American community. I'm very proud of it. The president who refused to disavow white supremacy at the first debate grew visibly frustrated when asked why he hesitated to do so. Each every time but people can I'm sure they'll ask you the white supremacy question I denounce white supremacy. Tell you one thing if I'm elected president, you will not hear me race baiting. Dividing you trying to unify cedric humphry pushing Biden on whether he's taking the black vote for granted besides you ain't black. What do you have to say to young black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that continually fails to protect them if young black women and men vote, you can determine the outcome of this election not a joke. You can do that and the next question is at my worthy of your vote can i? Earn your vote then detailing policy proposals to help black Americans gain wealth the president again sowing doubt without evidence about the election's legitimacy own. FBI. Director says there is no evidence of widespread that he's not doing a very good job biden saying win-or-lose he'll keep working towards a more perfect union Mr. Vice, president, if you lose what will that say to you about where America is today well could say I'm a lousy candidate and I didn't do a good job. But I think. I, hope. That Doesn't say that we are as. Racially ethnically, and religiously at odds with one another as it appears. The president wants us to be analysis from ABC News Chief White.

Trump administration denies California relief for 6 fires
"Hey, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you. Well, the Trump Administration did reject this request. It was in a letter from Governor Newsome back in September late September. This would mean essentially hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up damage from the six recent fires across the state, and it can be appealed. It will be appealed, but let's look at the motives behind the Trump administration's decision. What are they? Well, I don't want to see what the motives are, because this is a very much developing story. I did talk with Brian Ferguson of the Office of Emergency Services just within the last half hour. And you know, he makes it clear that they will be appealing. They don't seem particularly stunned by this they have. The Trump Administration has approved these kinds of requests for a presidential declarations in the past for wildfires and other disasters on clearly, you know, this wildfire season has been a particularly bad a historically bad one with Really bad fires in L, a Fresno Madeira counties and Casino San Bernadino, San Diego and Siskiyou. And so the administration sent this letter requesting disaster relief funds. More than four million acres burned in 2020. That's I think, double the state's previous record. And so the Trump Administration in responding FEMA in responding Said that the standards have not been met based on their review. So I did a said talk to Brian Ferguson and earlier this morning and this is how he described what the status of this request is. You know, this is not the end of our discussions in our process with the federal government. We were very much in the middle of this. Discussions with which the mother with other federal agencies can continue the letters and the legal documents for for months or even years. So we continued T work expeditiously that You know, turn on those programs leverages every ounce of federal support we can get, But this is very much an ongoing process. And he did say Michael that there are other parts of federal money that are available, like for small businesses and for you know individuals, A Zay said. This presidential declaration is the highest standard. On. So they know they only apply for these when they think they've got all of the verification and the data that they need to get it. So you know, I think they're not pulling the you know, pushing the panic button at this point. But clearly it was a surprise. And of course, you know your question was, you know, one of the motives and the initial. I think you know, the tendency is going to be to say, Oh, this is political. This is a psycho. This is trump trying to get you some back. You know, That may be true. It may not be true and it may all work out. In the end. This is not the first time That this sort of haggling back and forth has happened over an emergency declaration A few years ago, something similar happened with parts of the Oroville Dam. There were no questions about whether it was on state land federal land, so they haggled back and forth. And they finally resolved that. So you know, a cz Brian Ferguson suggested. This is not the end of the story. But it is surprising to say the least. Well, the president did approve welfare relief over the summer, and there are other sources of funding. FEMA grants, for example, is you mentioned, but no reasons were given, which is why I asked about motive, but remember the president and claim the state was not doing enough to prevent wildfires. He said. Governor Newsome did a terrible job forest management not breaking enough leaves, I guess like they do in Finland and The state faces over a $54 billion deficit because of the pandemic. It needs these funds to rebuild communities to rebuild buildings. Tio essentially fix damage roads and bridges. Absolutely, and you know, that was all included in the letter that the governor sent to FEMA into the president. Damage. As you said, you know, all kinds of infrastructure, not just the homes and buildings but bridges, schools, libraries, water and power facilities. Other infrastructure number of people have been killed. And you know this is extremely expensive and there are tremendous costs hundreds of millions of dollars for equipment and firefighters, fire retardant. There are all kinds of planes and helicopters, emergency emergency shelters, of course that get set up. So you know this is very expensive. It is a somewhat standard kind of request the kind of things that we see for hurricanes and Floods, wildfires and so on on. And as you said Trump has so far FEMA through and the Trump Administration have granted all of these on, you know, the president has said very recently that he has a good relationship with Newsome. You've Newsome was even featured briefly in an ad, which I'm sure he was not happy with the governor, but nonetheless, they do try to maintain despite all the political differences, which are major They do try toe team maintain a good relationship for just things like this, And we should mention that some of the stories that have come about as a result of this denial or refusal at this point have mentioned Wade Crow Foot. California Cabinet secretary confronting President Trump on climate change that one could assume falling on deaf ears. Well, you know, certainly. That was big news A few weeks ago when the president was here and yes, the governor's natural resource is director did confront him and I'm sure the president no did not appreciate the half. But I think we need to be careful to ascribe what what has happened here with this request to be directly related to that it might be, but it's not something that we're going to know. It's easy to speculate about Andi. It certainly wouldn't be inconsistent with the president's behavior on other issues in the past, But as I said FEMA are the Office of Emergency Services this morning at least, is not saying that and you know they're going to be appealing this initial rejection of the request.
Amy Coney Barrett continues to be questioned at Supreme Court confirmation hearing
"I'm a change as many have mentioned next central threat and it's affects around us do you. covid nineteen isn't. I think. Yes. I. Do accept the Covid Nineteen is infectious that that's something of which I feel like we could say you take judicial notice of it's an obvious fact. Yes. Causes Cancer. I'm not sure exactly where you're going with this, but you know the the notice. In question question is what it is answer. Harris. Yes. Every package of cigarettes warns that Smoking Causes Cancer. And do you believe that climate change is happening and it's threatening? The air we breathe in the lottery. Senator Again I was wondering where you were going with that. You have asked me a series of questions like that are completely uncontroversial like. Nineteen is infectious whether smoking causes cancer and then trying to analogize that eliciting an opinion on me that as a very contentious matter opinion from me that has on a very contentious matter of public debate and I will not do that. It will not express view on a matter of public policy especially when that is politically controversial because that's inconsistent with the judicial role as I have explained. Major plant here that you believe it's debatable. That Senator Kamala Harris questioning battering two days of hearings. j.j Barrett has repeatedly refused to answer questions about her views on abortion and the future of we'd Roe v Wade despite our public record opposing Reproductive Rights Barrett also repeatedly dodged questions on the Supreme Court's Obe grefell versus Hodge's ruling which said same sex couples could not be denied the right to marry this exchange with Democratic Senator Richard. Blumenthal of Connecticut. quickly. Decided Burger fell versus hodges. Senator Blumenthal every time you asked me a question about whether case was correctly are decided or not. I cannot answer that question because I cannot suggest agreement or disagreement with precedents of the Supreme Court. All those precedents by me now is a seventh circuit judge and I to be confirmed. I would be responsible for applying the law star decisive to all of them but you think of how you would feel. As a gay or Lesbian American to hear that you can't answer. Whether the government can make a crime for them to have that relationship. Whether the government. Can enable people who are happily married to continue. That relationship. Your. Senator implying that I'm poised to say that I want to cast a vote to overrule a burger followed I show you I. Don't have any agenda. I don't I'm not even expressing view and disagreement of Obama file. You're pushing me to try to violate the judicial canons of ethics to offer advisory opinions and I won't do that and I'm not asking you hypothetical. These are real cases I brown versus board of Education Do. You think it was correctly decided i. know you told Senator Graham you thought. So I'd like to just to clarify that point. Sure. So as I said to Senator Graham when he asked me that question I have spoken on that before and the originalism lecture that. Incorrectly decided. Correctly decided and yes, I've said that thank you. Let me ask you about. Loving versus the the loving case. was correctly decided well, loving follows directly from Brown and Brown's great correctly decided loving as well was correctly decided it was decided that was Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut Questioning Judge Amy Coney Barrett
"Amy Coney Barrett is is talking to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She's not saying much One thing that's clear from her hearing is that Amy Perez, shifty Amy Kuney Barrett is smart amy. Barrett is smarter than Brett, Kavanagh like of the. Smarter. Than Bread Kavanagh her confirmation hearing significantly less irritating on its face is it's got less screaming in it but do you think that her being? More, pleasant. Than other. Nominee his I'm specifically talking about Brad. Kavanagh, has lulled into a false sense of complacency. No, I don't think. So I really don't I think that we all probably learn a little bit more because we listen because we're not being shouted out about shouted out about making beer and squeeze in some calendars. You know I, think that we in some ways. I can't tell you a ton. From my memory of like policy questions that Brett Cavanaugh answered right like we were really put off by his temperament and everything sort of fell from there. But with her I think that senators have asked very good questions of her I think she hasn't answered most of them I, that that tells us a lot you know. I. Think especially because she is you know for someone who says that? It's my job to not forecast or say how I would vote if I were on the Supreme Court but you know she tells us that she has told us a lot. She's a very Christian she's pro-life and she brings her kids everywhere and I say this because she's a woman but I don't understand why people bring their small children to confirmation hearings it no sense. Have you seen? Pictures from Antonin Scalia is confirmation hearing He brought his entire big family. There's something to me read like sort of hat tip to her mentor Antonin Scalia who she clerked for Oh interests during okay I. did not know that during his hearing. He had like I. Think he has nine kids or something like that, and they all were sitting there in the chambers and he was. Confirmed during a time where things were a lot less contentious I mean bork already happened but he was things were a lot less contentious when he was confirmed and so there was a lot of like it. It's super weird to revisit that now because there was a lot of like people on the committee complimenting his big family and it was it was very, very strange but I think one thing that you know her family life is pretty irrelevant to. Her capacity as as a judge and her being a nice lady doesn't really have anything to do with her capacity as a judge what I was disturbed by that like. These hearings always to me seem just like an exercise and gas lighting. We know what she thinks about Roe v Wade we know what she thinks about it it is. We know and so she spends. Days pretending that we don't know and that her views are somehow something that she's going to rule on without input from her like she signed onto a letter that was written on behalf of a group that believes in vitro fertilization is manslaughter. Anyone asked her about that I didn't not yet. Did they somebody did on Tuesday they asked her if she felt like that and she said that she just signed the letter her way out of church or something I. Did hear that part that's fucking nuts i. just I hate how were being gasoline here I I it here's my question for you. Do you think because you know there are a lot of people who think that Democrats should have boycotted the hearing to show what a sham it was. I don't know how I feel about that. What do you think? I don't know I feel like the the right thing to do is. I think the platonic ideal of a member of the Senate Judiciary for this has been amy, Klobuchar Amy Klobuchar who the good aiming the good amy as you know as as she was running for president, she wasn't somebody that I whose candidacy I was enthusiastic about She's somebody who falls to the right of me on many issues. But as a member of this committee, she's done a really good job of asking pointed questions that seemed to have simple answers but that Amy Coney Barrett the bad, amy. Has Been Dodging.
Creating AI Products That Are Easy for Non-Technical Users with Bryton Shang
"So, Brighton a wanted to talk to you about your journey of building an AI chronic for specific market. You guys are any aqua cultures face using computer vision to monitor the health and size in growth of gigantic fish farms. Very, very big important industry also not industry at least what strikes my mind as as one that's eager for AI zone sake. You know we look at financial services and They might just like the sizzle obey but I, imagine a fish farmer doesn't they just want something practical. You got to go through this journey of finding a fit for a and for hardware in a market that really just wants an outcome topless about what that journey was like, what made the idea click, and then we have to go through to build a product that would be a business. So I I. Think Certainly. A are not like we really started with the customer need and and so clearly, there was a need for being able to Count Sea lice on the fish and as well as understand way in grows. And so whether that could be solved by air not that s really allows the. Clear from Farber, tops the number of farmers than an consistently said that that was number one problem. Solving that I mean there has been companies have tried to work on it using. More traditional computer vision or via other techniques and and really the idea being that I, mean there's been technologies developed economy striving and other industries social media that have developed deep learning and other AI models that have been really successful at identifying objects in images and doing three D. reconstruction, and so for for that was inspiration for us to be able to apply similar technology to. Get. Started is a bit challenging. So of course, weakness gather training data and this is something where basically taken lots of pictures of fish from being able to annotate those images or see lies and even like determining the way to the finish this is not something you can determine from an image actually after go physically. Way Them in war and so generally challenges around the data collection aspect but. Really I. Mean I think the company it's I ended saying that it's likely companies is sort of like raisin bread like company is like, Brad. In is just like the reasons that make it special. But the end of the day we're still solving for that cornea farmer one, hundred percent I mean if you could girl billion dollar firm with not live ai more power to you, you know what? I. Mean, we just happen to have a focus on a I use cases here on the show, but we certainly don't doubt toy ai for its own sake, but it sounded like the problem was suited and so bought a being right. You're not going to be able to build software that takes a look at fish. You know the old school methods of computer vision of looking at lines or something like the the. Videos of how computer vision you storage just never going to skin the cat you gotta use them Al and the kickoff for the company which you mentioned in our previous interview was actually regulation which I found to be interesting. So there was a regulatory act in Norway and I don't know if this district place in other countries are just in Norway where they had to count the leisa certain amount on their fishy certain amount of sampling. It seemed like that was actually the catalyst almost to the business is that safe to say? I would say, so I mean, certainly, there is businesses economic incentives in the also economic driver for them to manage sea lice because something that does Chech- environmental concerns as well as food safety concerns. It is something that is intimately tied with regulation and and in this case pretty much every country that grows fish in the ocean has some form of regulation of parasites. That's that's interesting. I think obviously most of our listeners are not familiar with aquaculture space. But curious to see that this regulation there you know when I think about the sectors where we might do a little bit more coverage or certainly where we do our market research work like financial services when someone is selling a document search and discovery software very rarely saying, well, you know here's how this can tangibly improve efficiencies. People try to find these of documents for mortgages, tons of documents for insurance underwriting. There are a lot of time using the argument of, Hey, you're really gonNA get regulatory slapped if. You don't I dunno change these kind of library bore clauses now that that legality has gone away or if you don't remove client data on their requests and if you can't find all of it, that's still your problem and this is going to help you. So regulation in the fear of those consequences honestly is something that financial services vendors lean on especially when they don't have other ways of measuring our why curious to see that it's also potentially a lever to kick off a need for technological innovation your space to this is something that's me people kind of have to adapt if you will. Absolutely. One of the differences though for we're talking about kind of. Companies. In some of the challenges we through is not just the farmers understanding that it's not the not like a thermometer like you drop it in it tells you the. In Data Adler. I I'm and. How many do you buy and it just gets better over time present get worse over time but fundamentally does work differently and so there is. But that's just sort of like the challenge of the system. So to speak is that like it's it's all mechanical system it is a dynamic system. That's the challenge for Mel, across the board in these living breathing systems or somebody's got to of keep tabs on things. Now, I presume now some markets. Well aware of this plenty vendors that we've had on mean from data data robots of a Yazdi's to Lord knows how many are essentially providing folks with tools where their in house data scientists are also going to be able to use these tools to get a job done maybe detect money laundering maybe detect cancerous tumor is on patients or whatever the case may be. These are tools for in house technical folks, and maybe in house non, technical folks, there are some vendor companies try to keep as much or all love the actual data collection processing in kind of that, we call the heavy lifting of. Keeping a living breathing in else's running in house in the vendor then they're only giving the user more or less a SASS products. Now, of course, it's more complicated than that. But for the user, it's about that simple. My guess in aquaculture is the in house data science staff is rather limited at these firms. You're essentially having to do the latter company where you're giving them. Here's the hardware plug it in. Here's the dashboard you're gonNA look at it but just know Mr buyer that there's a lot going on in terms of labeling in upkeeping heavy lifting that you don't have to do that we're handling. I presume that's what you've had to to bill. That's right and I mean for us the machine learning AI component is more. It's more like a cafe thing rather than for for them they prefer. Likely it's more important for us to be off, Walter. Company delivering Wade Send House in Yemen sorta not exposing so much of like the ID. Yeah Yeah.
"d wade" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"In Rick Mahorn Lia had gotten oh skill you do realize Isaiah came in and after eighty one and all those files of all those finals appearance that he was going to even though they win. Those deep playoff run bus up the bulls. And they're finally but Larry Robert and Mikhail got old. Dj Got Home August Celtic ghetto. The sixers had already got no Dr J. Moses blown and moved on Yada Yada Yada and then all of a sudden but he took time off. I wish Lebron head of one of those finals took a couple of years off comeback couple because then we judge differently. Because Oh Michael would've done this. We don't know what like would have done. All we know is that he took time off any did and there were three year they which he did not go to the NBA finals. Lebron James eight straight. Eight athletic has chosen the best player ever to wear each number in NBA history from zero. All the way up to ninety nine number three caught my eye because Alan Iverson was chosen over. Dwayne Wade Shannon Sharpe. Do you agree with that choice? Skip probably would have went with D. Wade for the simple fact that three championships and the three The finals MVP and when he was clearly the best player on the the first championship team. I think it was all sex. It which they won. They beat come from down. Oh two and they ended up beating the Dallas Mavericks but skip their career the similar as far as credentials way with the two time first team all NBA a out with three-time all NBA APD. Wait seven for thirteen time. All-star for D. Wade Eleven for Alan Iverson and have mentioned d. Wade won the finals. Mvp A out one of the regular season. It'd be so I probably skipped would've LEAN MORE TO D. WAY. Because indy way was a first team all defensive to time dependent team A. I didn't give a whole lot of debate. Subside skipped he could steal the ball but he was so small he was probably. Maybe what five six foot tall. Maybe they buy books sixty soaking wet so he didn't really provide a whole lot on the defense side because people spectacular and he would all these.
"d wade" Discussed on Today, Explained
"In Millhauser you covered the Supreme Court for Vox. And you're at the court yesterday for oral arguments in this case. June Medical Services v Russo. How did it go? It's a little surprising. So when I woke up Wednesday morning I thought those zero percent chance that the Supreme Court would vote to strike down this antiabortion law okay and when I left. I was a little surprised by Chief Justice Roberts who is very conservative and very conservative in particular on abortion I left. There's a thirty percent chance that he will flip over and vote to strike down the antiabortion law which means the clinic would win and the state of Louisiana would lose. That's right I think there is at least some chance that there's going to be five votes in favor of the clinic here on the reason. Why is that? The state claims that it passed this law in order to protect patient's health and Robert seemed unpersuaded at times by that argument. It's not a convincing argument. There's very little empirical evidence for it. Hope Medical Center the abortion clinic at the heart of this is performed about seventy thousand abortions and only four of those have led to complications that required hospitalization. So you know if your fear is that. There's this epidemic of People who are having complications after they have an abortion require hospitalization. And they can't get into the hospital because there isn't fear not problem has already been solved by the fact that abortion is very safe and the chances that abortion patient is going to require. Hospitalization is vanishingly. Small is the argument that the clinic made in front of the court yesterday. That's right yeah so the clinic and I and I should point out like some of our listeners. Be Having Deja Vu here. The reason why they might be having Deja Vu is because in two thousand sixteen. There's a case called whole women's health. V Heller Stat chief justice and May it please the court? The Texas requirements undermine the careful balance struck and Casey between faiths legitimate interests in regulating abortion and women's fundamental liberty to make personal decisions about their pregnancies. They are unnecessary health. Regulations that create substantial obstacles to abortion access and what the Supreme Court said in that case. Is that admitting privileges. Laws do not benefit patients and basically all at the clinic was arguing. This case was hey that thing that you said less than four years ago still true the Federal District Court after trial found the two provisions were unconstitutional. They constituted undue burden on a woman's right to choose. The Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed. We in agreed with the District Court and we reversed the court of Appeals. So why here the case then? They've already decided something so close in Texas. The biggest difference between whole woman's health the case from four years ago and June medical. The case that was heard this week has nothing to do with the facts of the cases. Nothing to do with the law has everything to do with the personnel on the Supreme Court four years ago Justice Kennedy was stolen the court and Justice Kennedy. You Know I. I wouldn't call him a huge defender of abortion rights. You voted to strike down the overwhelming majority of the abortion restrictions. That came before him. But every now and then he would see a restriction. That goes too far. You're cutting too far in into this core constitutional right that Mike Boorda's recognize and that's what he said in whole woman's House Kennedy's gone on Kennedy was the fifth vote whole women's health and his replacement. Brad Kavanagh has a very consistently antiabortion record in making your argument you ignored and I believe mischaracterized Supreme Court precedent. You reasoned that Jane Doe should not be unable to exercise our right to choose because she did not have family and friends to make her decision. The argument Rewrite Supreme Court precedent and Gorsuch is also fresh to the court from that two thousand sixteen decision. That that's right yeah. Neal gorsuch was appointed to replace justice. Scalia who actually died. While the whole woman's health case was pending so did gorsuch and cavenaugh weigh in on Wednesday in any way. That might suggest how they're going to vote. So gorsuch was quiet at the oral argument but based on his record when he was a lower court judge he took a very aggressive steps against planned parenthood. Like I'm pretty darn confident that core such is going to cast antiabortion votes. Cavanaugh also signalled that he intends to vote with the state here and Kavanagh's argument so remember that whole woman's health the Texas case said that admitting privileges don't do anything to benefit patient health and it also said that. It's also really hard for doctors to get these things early for abortion. Doctors take to get amazing privileges and so this is a huge burden for no benefited struck down capital. How do we know? That's true in Louisiana. Sure it might be true that in Texas. It's really hard for abortion doctors to get these credentials but maybe it's different Louisiana. Is it no? It's not the American Medical Association and the Medical Association representing Obstetricians and gynecologists filed an amicus brief where they said Nope Zane the evidence in the case suggests that it's the same there several doctors in this case who tried to get admitting villages and weren't able to do so you know and and often it was for the exact reason that I said. I like one of the doctors for example only provides medication abortions and doesn't really have much of a medical practice beyond like every now and then prescribing on medication abortions and so. This person admits pretty much. No one to a hospital because there's no need that for any of this. Doctors patients go into a hospital and so that person would have really tough time getting omitting village. In fact the state's own expert witness admitted that yeah that that doctor would have a tough time getting admitting privileges. So what's the bigger picture here? We know from what you said about giving the state a thirty percent chance of winning this case here that Louisiana would go from three abortion clinics to maybe just one bright which would make the procedure even more restrictive in the state. But but what's going on here with the Supreme Court Roe v Wade and this new cast of characters. So this case is likely to come down to Roberts you know he was the only person I saw up there who seemed in any way uncertain about how he would vote. And Roberts really doesn't like Roe v Wade you know if the lawyer for the state had come in and said we think that Roe v Wade was wrongly decided and and we think that this court should overrule at. And here's the argument for why. This should be overruled and they've just been opened about what they were trying to accomplish. I think there's a really good chance Roberts would have said like that's what I want to. What the state did instead is. It passed this law which is really an abortion restriction but it's Kinda disguised as a health regulation and then they asked the justices to say like we want you to pretend that this lol is going to protect people's health even though we can't provide you much evidence that it will and even though you said for years ago that it won't and even though our lawyer is now in an oral argument and the liberal justices peppering her with questions asking her to Find Demonstrate. Evidence. This will protect women's health and she's unable to do it. The state was asking the justices to participate in a pretty deceptive. Act here. There's a chance that Roberts isn't GONNA go there. But what does it mean for the next case that comes? That isn't handled this way. That doesn't have this precedent. What does it mean when someone comes to the Supreme Court to this to this new cast of characters gorsuch and Cava and says Row v? Wade is bad law. Yeah I mean I think the bad news for people care about abortion rights is. I think that there's a chance that Roberts gives Roe v Wade a stay.

And put it online the NBA. Let's happen. And I think it's so smart to, cultivate, this, you know, never ending social media love fest for the NBA. It's just very savvy. Absolutely. I would like to see a little of. My time to number forty four D. Wade congratulations on a great run. Now. I know what you're going through because saying goodbye to a career that you love is never easy. I've been there in my case though, I didn't really have a choice. You know, my knees were shot. So I had to give up basketball forever. I just wanted to hear his voice again. But I do actually have a point. And that is I think that it's true social media does play into this. And there are a nostalgia and good feelings. But I really feel like we are enjoying these moments because there's very little else to ensure. I don't know it, right? Like, we are in joy this retirement moment. I think a little bit more than we used to just because it's really great to have something that we can all get behind enjoy right now, totally agree in a think that if you're a fan of say the Mavericks the heat him both miss out on the playoffs. Then all you really could just focus on the fact that you were fortunate enough to have a legend play for your team and bring championships to your city. All right. Well, the WNBA has a new logo for.

I don't I don't love. I feel like he could have people in blame. Kevin Garnett for leaving Minnesota. They were like man that was a mismanaged team. I think Anthony Davis could have gone down a similar route. I think some of the ways gone about it given the fan the middle finger the wearing this shirt for a guy who so likable. I don't know if he's made the nest in that guy. He's his image was totally different. Every since he signed with click sport. Right. Oh, yeah. After the game Alvin gentry actually came out and said he thinks the brow got some bad advice. Some of the decisions he made maybe now a ruinous right time for some sources. Start your morning. Brought to you by the expected energy of Exxon Mobil, air Rogers, lead us in on some interesting information revealing that he played the entire twenty eighteen season on a fractured leg. CC? What was your reaction to this not surprise? I mean typically you hear closer to the Super Bowl after that been like wow guy was playing with the fracture guy was playing with torn ligaments. That's what NFL players who. So not surprised at all that he had a little fracture in there when he got hit and went down. I thought it might have been more significant than than what it was. But that's par for the course in the NFL and his play is specially in the few weeks right after the injury. You could see it. He wouldn't get to one direction. He was not mobile at all. Even though that's been a huge part of his game. You I didn't know it was a fracture. I thought it was more likely ligament issue, maybe an MC L sprain. But it was he clearly was not one hundred percent. And you saw it. And you also saw the moment. He got his reaction on the field was a guy who thought he was seriously injured. I two superstar say goodbye to their fans last night twain way, Dirk Nowitzki, both playing their final home games of their career Nick who had the better career, Dirk or D. Wade. This is not the debate that I'll go to the mattresses on because it's incredibly close. Now, according to my officially unofficial rankings. Dirk is sixteenth all time D way eighteenth all time, but you could push your pull me either way. They both have very unique legacies. Dirk about the greatest European player ever D. Wade continuing the legacy of the great shooting guards from Michael to Kobe to D Wade leaving Jerry West because different era and now James harden. But they were always connected. See Wade's first championship came at Dirks expense. I championship came at D. Wade LeBron's expense. So to all time greats. Walking away Dirk as far as you rank him as a power forward. Right. So we're wondering as far as power fall. So that's going to be tougher. I think of my head I think he'd be fourth. But I don't have that in front of me right now. I don't. Might give the wing way to ED's because of the championships and because of his ranking per shooting guard. He's D Wade is the fourth graders shooting guard ever. There's no argument there now jerk has a regular season MVP. Should you know, maybe we should know this? What we do we call Paul Pierce? He went with dark dark was both are worse than him. Yes. He made that very guess, you know, you need your own page Nick appeal, and it's just all lists that you made that people can just reference any given moment. Awesome.

"The fourth quarter. I think I'm all about a appreciate your time today man and good luck. The rest of the season. I can't wait to watch on the playoffs. Refits you guys. Thank you. Now. Nicosia breakdown the D. Wade verse Paul Pierce debate. What do you make of this claim I watch people every day of the week say dumb stuff on TV can Paul puts his name right in there. Like when you start comparing yourself to players, you open yourself up to be criticized and to be wrong in this one. He just compared himself to the wrong guy in real time. When he was doing the show if he could back back on it. He didn't have to insert himself in there said nothing to do with him. But he inserted himself into. Oh, man. If I would if I had shack if I had he forgot his own past were they did trade for K G for you Ray Allen. They did get you guys were the regional big three. So I watch TV all day. I do fifteen hours. A TV I hear people say dumb stuff every single day. Paul pierce? Welcome to the club and on Paul Pierce been in that club the saying stuff on TV club this delusional. I mean, it's just it's not just the I test. It's not just the numbers. The you laid out its weight was for the bulk of his prime but consensus top ten player in the league Pierce, maybe had one year where that was true. I mean, how do we judge Templars you go by top ten and VP voting you go by first or second all NBA first or second team MBA selection. Just look at it does look at what d- Wade had seven top ten MVP finishes to peers as one five first or second teams to Pierce his one super level scoring years. Do Wade's three pulp years has zero. Nobody believes this. This is not it's not like this all the old barbershop debate wilt or Bill Russell, you You know, know what I what? mean. I mean. The magic is as a Tom. There's no debate here. There's no argument, and I just it is it is kind of par for the course for pulp ears overrating within his era where he is. And for not understanding that when he said, I'll give me prime shack way didn't have prime shack. Wade at very good shack. But the year they won their first title the title without LeBron see the title that. I know you were at a bunch of those games the second leading score in the finals for Dwayne Wade's heat was former Celtic Antoine. Walker? A guy that Paul Pierce had for a long time and could never make anything work with as far as high level winning. This is this is not a close discussion. And nobody thinks it why do you think Paul Pierce thinks? It is why do you think Paul Pierce thinks? He was a better player. Dwayne Wade or would have been better player had he had the same weapons that almost every great player ever meant all of them think they're better than what they are myself include. So every player that they all thought they were better thought that their highlights were better thought that their stats, we're better. He just verb. Relies on television. And peers also he has it's made very clear sense his career ended he has a level of of insecurity about where he is historically about half that he he thinks the public does not understand how good he was you. Remember he was upset that he was going to have to share the jersey retirement night..

"We ran out of time there, but. Allow more time for that tomorrow my bed, and let's talk about the night that Wayne Wade had your Omer teammate near former team in his former form with eight down to the warriors. Wade nailing this miraculous buzzer beating three pointer to win the game beat the warriors and incredible scene in Miami. Goldens, the Golden State loss puts them at just a half game up on the nuggets. But let's hear from D Wade after the thrilling finish. To coaches. Chris Quinn, not told him. I said I passed us from south last game from three nothing about pass up any today. Find me so I wanna make sure that it always aggressive and took us that was giving to me in. Did. So. I wonder what Kobe hit that game winner on me in LA when he hit it. We hit the glass, but it's how possible that you saw way mob mentality. Tally special Antoine was this night in the moment for weighed on a little bias play the way. But also the way from Kogyo says some of the same backgrounds loud to saying France. So I was so I'm so happy form this year because as a player, you don't get this opportunity to to go out and home merit a lot. And he's having fun with it. You see every game of opponents treatment. Really really well. But I was excited. I think the moment you saw every talked about the Wayne finishing the season plan. Start a minutes and really trying to make the playoffs. So he's going to be a big part of what they got going on these last twenty game. So I'm excited for him. I know how hard he works to keep his by together coming to Chicago didn't work out but to go back to Miami and had success in if they make the playoffs. That'd be great. What this it'll be great. But this mama right here. Have you don't make at least you got something this moment right here. And it didn't by the way. Look like Dwayne Wade was going to have an opportunity to go out on his own terms. Like last. Forget he got a gift from cleave. Right. I mean, it was awful. Lebron? It doesn't work out in Chicago to where they pay him to leave. Lebron picks him up and the Cavs pick them up. I should say, and they they. You don't like. Tim up in a deal. On us. Sean pick them up because he typically says that or let's slip and say we picked them. I don't say we'd hold on. That's not true. The might be a little true, Dun pointed. It doesn't work out in Cleveland. Right. And they have a they reconcile in Miami. Because he impact Riley were a little angry at each other angry Pat Pat at him, but he wasn't very good last year until the end and the end in the playoffs. He was he was good for them. And now he's averaging fourteen and a half point to game this year. He's been one of their most key players. He isn't starting really. But he is playing the end of games like this. We're not showing it here. But he hit the three on the possession before to put them in position. After Durant had a sick for point play that I thought was going to ice the game. And right now yet they're in the ten spot, but they're a half game out of the playoffs. Like, so this is great. And it seemed do the lap around the court jump on the scores table. I've got you guys. I'm sure you guys both from your. Career have moments that stand out above some of the others like just a moments, particularly near the end of a while like that to hold onto D. Wade we'll have this to hold onto forever. No matter. What happens the rest of the way, I'm so happy..
"d wade" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"He's a different. They're totally different types. Coups was more of a score. He's not the playmaker or the defender that Pippen was. But watching him his last ten games. He's averaged twenty points a game his last five games. He's averaged twenty five and when I watch him I feel like I'm watching. I remember watching Pippen coming up in the years under George, you know, Pittman didn't he wasn't a great player right away. Every year. You saw development you saw growth. And I remember watching him feeling like I can see how he's learning from Michael just being around, Michael. I don't know if Michael took him by the hand and talked to him a lot. But. I think he learned for Michael's work ethic. And just being around me pick things up. That's kind of what I see with Kouzmin. I really see him improving, and I think LeBron's presence and learning from LeBron seeing how hard he works and this and that I think this kid is really coming into his own. I don't know I feel maybe they'll get a Anthony Davis or something the second guy, but he's a better side. And I agree and whether he's a better player better fit with the Yes. yes. Because he could play out the ball better that he can spot up shoot two three better than Ingram. Can this game? It played out like thought it should have. I think the last two possessions that the position that Miami had the position that the Lakers had D. Wade LeBron gardening. It should have come down to them maker miss and the other the Brian got an opportunity hit two free throws a put them three. But I thought they guard each other not Bron, set the friendship. I thought de ways set the friendship aside for this game on it was gonna be the last match up in up they played well, LeBron Levin poison the quarter de way seven the seven seven points in the fourth quarter. And LeBron is LeBron. And like you said, I think we don't want LeBron to have this hair work low. We don't want to turn the Cleveland, whatever what your target into because the strategy you go have the ball in his hands. And he's gonna look to score the basketball or he's going to drive in kit. That's what you get when. When you when you get him you need to understand what you're getting don't try to make him something else. This is LeBron. He is he had a very very high IQ. He can score the basketball. So you must pay attention to him. But he's a look to get to the real. And when you try to stop in with two guys he's gonna kick now whether or not they make it because we saw at San Antonio. He was scoring. He was driving kicking they made the shots. That's the only different. So I don't wanna hear you say, no, you'd have it. But I know you gotta word. I don't wanna hear you say broad you had it going. Why would you drive in kit? Just take it to the real. So I thought LeBron James was really good down the stretch last night for all the reasons both of you just pointed out. I was a little deflated because Duane in the end look like he was nearing the end. He looked like he was on his last legs. And he was trying to just reach down and pull out one last two raw because that was the kind of game that he used to just be so all-time great at which just I'll one up you do that. When I'll do you one better down here. And he he couldn't down the stretch match LeBron and he wound up shooting six for nineteen last night and over seven from three and you made the point earlier in the show..

"LeBron that at least financially LeBron had always paid back like it was delayed that said LeBron come to Miami and took the lease money out of LeBron Bosh, and Wade it was delayed that when they were on vacation with their families after the meltdown against Dallas said we need you to be the guy here and he took a back seat. And then it was delayed when LeBron wanted to go to. Cleveland de way, wasn't the first person to find out and by the time D Wade found out that decision at Artie cost when we ten million dollars because he opted out of a contract to make it easier for them to bring back LeBron. But the relationship has not only sustained that. But thrived throughout that. It's why last night's moment with the ball ending the game ending with the ball and de Wade's hand LeBron guarding him. And then those guys embracing at the end was such a cool moment because this will be the last time these two play, right? And also people might debate Dwayne way might be the best player over a longer period because Kyrie's career hadn't played out individual -bility might say offensively kyri, but d- wait hold the spot of LeBron respecting the most. And when you have that type of respect it opens, you up I tell people all the time, you can tell the people that I like those are the people that I spend my time with privately not me. I'm paid to spend time with y'all but. The side of the spend time with you off the clock. You know that those relationships are significantly different. And also, I believe that not only surrendering his franchise, which I know which he did with the Miami Heat. But the -bility Bill the push LeBron day to day that's important to a player coach can only do so much, but having someone else there who has a skill level that you have a respect for and can push you night in and night out with sometimes you don't feel like being the best player, but he pushes you because based on your relationship and your commitment to the relationship. I do believe they do have a special relationship. I believe at one day LeBron's going to own an NBA team and away would be one of those people that I believe potentially will be part of an ownership group. I believe it's special. It's great to see when he went to Miami. Lebron said that's when he went off to college and a lot of times when you're in college man, you develop special relationships that last a lifetime and LeBron talked about. Out after the game in an article. I read this morning that he said without delay. Listen, I I would have had a lot of individuals success. He said career my career individually would have been fine..

"For the final time, the thirty first head-to-head meeting between the two and LeBron with the win playing that defense on weight at the end of the game because he knows it. So well, he knew the move that was coming up with the permanent sixteen fifteen edge for all turn ity, Steven Jalen, I've been talking about a little bit here this morning. Do you believe that the relationship between these two guys shifted the culture of friendship in the NBA? I think it definitely played a role believe it or not is hotly as hotly contested. As magic were. You know, everybody knew that at the time they were incredibly close, even though their friendship, obviously, ultimately took a turn for the worst before to believe got back on track. But you have to remember if you ask Thomas with a friendship went awry was when they actually win the buydell because that's when everything changed because all of a sudden Magic Johnson was overturned in the goals. Oh, so you can hang out at the crib off. Day or whatever the case. No, no, no, no. I'm trying to beat you for championship. Lebron D way they've been incredibly tight. But unlike those relationships in the past what you have here would LeBron and D Wade is a brotherhood and LeBron believe it or not the guy looking up to d way D way was older de way went through levels of adversity that ultimately LeBron he was able to counsel abroad on LeBron great play that he is always would have been that guy. No matter what. But the champion that he became was in large part to do the Pat Riley the coach that existed in Miami at how they ultimately taught him. How to be a champion? Fascinates me is too great players both champions. Both hall of famers were in the same conference for a decade and never faced each other in the playoffs. The heat one to championship two thousand seven the Cavs won the east in two thousand eight they joined the play together in two thousand and two so four their relationship. For their legacy. It was terrific for the game. But as a fan of the league in does leave me thinking, what if we got a chance to see some of those performances happen in if they'd played in games the way you're talking about like magic did that meant absolutely everything. Would it have changed things? I think that we'll ever know it, and you're probably right. What I would say too. Is that I'm like magic, unlike Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Unlike any of the guys who were friends before these guys decided let's play together and win a bunch of championships together. And in that regard. I think they did change everything because that was something that no one would have done before the stars of the eighties and the nineties of scoffed at that and to some degree. I think they look down on these guys because absolutely right from the standpoint that they would have scoffed at it. No question about it. But the other side to it that a lot of people ignore potted, a reason D Wade in Pat Riley, ultimately had a falling out before they made immense was because the sensually Pat Riley put D Wade in a position to make a choice. In other words, LeBron was departed from south beach. You don't know what's going on. You haven't heard anything you've got nothing to tell us, and then once LeBron deported, obviously, Pat Riley that old school that you. Pat Riley in about their friendship. I'm trying to destroy him. I happen to know that Pat Riley was contemplating retirement until the Braun decided to leave LeBron decided to leave it like added, you know, added years to his life, and he was determined to come back and show something, but ultimately you have to concede that LeBron is the best relationship. Now rally is obviously try and make you mad then I feel like I'm making you guys, man..

"Because you still can't compete you think people realize and seen that even with our friendship. We competed against each other and push each other. I mean, we did it our way we didn't care about the narrative where people created before us or people said during or people saying now unbelievable arrives Ecksteen years. And so weird. Like, I didn't even realize that we were tied. Fifteen fifteen coming into today's game until this morning. He was just, you know, as story story book storybook, and you can't even you know, we've got great writers here and Hollywood, and I don't even know if they'd be right? This. So the tie LeBron and greenie mentioned was broken yesterday. Giving the brunt of sixteen to fifteen inch head to head against Wade Laurent average twenty eight and a half points per game in their thirty one matchups. Three more than Wade, though, both had four forty point games to their name so much to talk about here. But let's start with this. Because you do here a lot about their relationship in what both of them are saying did LeBron D. Wade change the way that we view basketball players relationships in the NBA, actually, they didn't and for fans and media. We've been prisoners of the moment. Have you guys ever heard of a couple of people name Magic Johnson is as Thomas and Mark McGuire who would best to France might Bajic in Isaiah even did a ceremonial kiss on the cheek before they took the floor during NBA finals games. The difference was they were vicious rivals. And the fascinating thing for me. Is that hall of fame players were in the same conference, LeBron James, Dwayne weight and Carmelo Anthony Notre playoff? Rivalries. Okay. The miami. He wanted to championship two thousand seven the Cavs won the east in two thousand and eight they joined up the play together in two thousand and ten and you know, what was paying attention. Kevin durant? Yep. He was watching the Lakers tried to do it. Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant and Katie was not happy about it. He tweeted about her fingers about it and everything all these guys want to join up, and they don't want to compete against one another there. It is. It has a lot of like dozen blue law. Let so greeting the he decided after winning the MVP and after being eliminated audit, Golden State Warriors. And they lost the final winner semi engage. That navy was going to join the war. So that that's how LeBron Wade. That's why I disagree with you. Do I think that they were great friends in the NBA before LeBron D? Wade. Absolutely. But the notion they would come together, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley used to go play golf together do all sorts of things back in the day when they were competing against each other. But they never talked about playing together as Charles Barkley's teammates what they felt about that. They were not happy about were such good for. They all thought that Michael was kind of in with Patrick Ewing. Okay. The point is that they were friends that was never a question where they're gonna join thermoses sort of like Batman, and Robin or superman, and Batman, whatever you wanna call these guys. So in that regard. I do think they kind of change they changed the game where they they changed the game. They allow fans and media to accept all NBA VP caliber players. Instead of opposing one another's posing one another to join forces, which is why we have this term sports now called super teen. That's exactly right. We have a lot more to do on this game and more basketball as we continue this morning, but in ten minutes Draymond green was back for the lineup for the Golden State Warriors and better than ever. Plus, the Celtics looking for six straight win without kyri and Gordon Hayward we have those coming in just a few minutes. Still city when another ten went season.

"I mean, you're remembering off season we were ridiculing this team. John schneider. GM Pete Carroll. They were breaking up the legion of boom. This wasn't the same team that we were used to. They were ruining it ruining the team building it around Russell Wilson. And now all of a sudden you're scared to play this team. The defense has come a low. They have a running game. Now that you have to be scared of him. We've watched Russell Wilson throughout the years and throughout this year carry this teams at the team at points during games. So you're scared to play this team in when you look at a team with a championship pedigree but championship quarterback that is now dedicated themselves to running the football that wins in January. And this is a very scary team approaching the playoffs. Yeah. So let's say the Seahawks and the Cowboys do actually face off as predictors goodness. Okay. Why why the all go home, right? If I'm one of these other NFC teams lower. You know what I'm saying? I'm so glad you guys had the plea other. Because that means I don't have to play one of you right now. These teams are playing extrordinary defeats both of these teams are running the ball at a very high level. Those are things that travel. You know, you when you're high flying offense. We saw the New Orleans Saints go to Dallas in get Moto. There. We saw the Los Angeles Rams go to Chicago Sunday night and not be able to produce office defense travel. Travel was physicality pursuing the ball tackling that travels being able to run the ball being physical offense that travels in win. You can't do that. You become a scary opponent for anybody? So if I'm the Los Angeles Rams, if I'm the New Orleans Saints if Chicago Bears, I say, you know, what guys go ahead and slug it out and sin one of the home because I don't want to play in. You don't wanna see that guy? Chris Carson running at you. And you certainly don't want to see. Zeki Elliott running at you. And wouldn't it be ironic and season? We're all we talked about for the first three months where these pinball offensive that we were seeing if in the end, it's defense and running the football that winds up being the difference. You know, it'd be very happy. Rex Ryan would that was the story. All right, much football as we go. But Laura return a basketball I noticed going into the game last night.

And of course, you see LeBron on Wade right there at the very end of this one. And it was a nice remember for these two very good friends with LeBron had to say. It was cool, man. You know that was it. You know can't guard Bronx. I'll never get the garden again and vice versa. Even he knew my move at the end as AVI from getting too much. That's how well we know. Each other man, I'm thanking him for pushing me and vice versa. You know, what like I said what we've opponents of each other. What did we see as we went to the final four years in a row? And we want them ten minutes ago, we made each other better than us. How you can actually some people say you shouldn't be friends with your competitors..

"That's how they we even had a practice on the second of a back to back when we played the same team two nights in a row the Denver Nuggets two nights in a row. And we had we had we had a shoot around on the second back to back. And he goes, what's they're talking about. We just played them last night. And. The veterans on the team where like, you know, they just weren't having it. And I think what what it came down to was. We're veterans we've been here. You're the new guy, and he we're not gonna sit here. Listen to you till you earn it. And you we've played for Phil, right? We've played for my kids like getting a PHD in basketball. So the young guys now have to decide are they going to play for JIMBO Boylan are they going to take this? And, you know, do they really feel like they might win this one. This is this is the players and maybe coaching and management. Well, so and I wanna get to LeBron Wade so quickly Ramona I just want to ask and you can follow Ramona at Ramona Shelburne on Twitter garp is already said we want Jim Boylan to be our head coach next. He's going to be our coach inexplicably announcing that they're going to have them coach next season. Even though he hasn't proved anything yet and everything could go terribly. Is there any thing that you can tell a bulls fan have any optimism whatsoever about this team as long as gar and packs are still in charge. You know, I really liked the talent that they've drafted. If you want your do you want me to cheer people up in the windy city? I mean me now. I I think the players are really good. I think window Carta juniors. Really good. I think Zach LeVine is has proven that. He's he's taking a step forward. We'll see where he goes from with it. But he's had a nice start this year. I, you know, I think Lauri Markkanen. It's gonna be a star in this league. So whether or not, you know, we're having a rough spot here, they've got talent. And even though they didn't have a top pick. They they did. Well, with those lottery picks just gonna take a couple years to for them to grow into it. But I you know, that's what always wins in this league. So did that did that you feel about that help a little bit little bit a little? That's amazing. Ramona, don't let her same all sad. The bears did do something incredible. She's been on night. We're talking SPN's Ramona Shelburne on the shell Pennzoil performance line. So let's switch over to sort of the matchup. Everybody's talking about tonight with D. Wade LeBron getting there the rubber matches. They are tied head to head. And they put a little perspective on what that actually like tonight's game actually means in that sense. Interesting. You know, I think they really changed the league, right? The super friends team because in the past we've seen super teams, but they weren't necessarily created by players. They were created by a front office making moves, but this was really like three superstars in their prime say, let's play together. And let's make this work and it scared every owner in the league to death, right? Like once they knew that it they literally change a CVA to make it harder for players to do that. They don't because once those guys did it everybody else wanted to team up. And and it was really the beginning of this euro we've had of player agency of players really taking control of the league of their power of their destinies. You haven't seen that before this? And now, it's always the, and I think LeBron and Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh deserve a lot of credit for that. Plus, I just always go back to when the brand finally left Miami. When he goes back to Cleveland, I was covering this risk, and I was out in Las Vegas and D wage shows up at his Cam. And they end up writing on a plane together back to Miami..

"Obviously, you're going to be somebody that benefits from the presence of LeBron James who has the ball in his hands. He's the ultimate decision makers. Well, but if you are a superstar, and you believe that you were the of number one status and number one stature not only plan with LeBron. Do you have to sit there and look at the ball in his hands. But you also have to play the role of spectators sitting around waiting for him to make those basketball decisions. And if you're an elite player, you might not want to do that. And I'm saying from a basketball perspective, factually, tell me what is wrong with that. Didn't d do exactly that by going to play was not at all because do because it's entirely different plan with Steph curry and Clayton those are elite shooters. But if you look Draymond handling the boss of Tom step is handling the ball. There's a myriad of individuals Shaun Livingston. There's a myriad of individuals who are handling the basketball plus their movement without the basketball this selflessness. You don't see guys playing the role of spectators, but LeBron that might be different. And there's nothing wrong with it because he's the best in the world. And he's a great decision maker. But if you're an elite player, you may not want to play that role. Go ahead, Richard. I just don't understand what we're talking about right here because K D And Westbrook when they were together those two guys for dominantly handled the ball, and they predominantly did everything for their team D Wade succeeded with LeBron James LeBron James became the number one out too. When he would wait went to LeBron as scent, look that has to be an alphabet. That's a that's a media thing. That'd be he went to them and told him to be the best player on the planet. And I will in any. He steps on the floor. If he's next the k d k D's going to have to play second fiddle and not everybody wants to do that. Not everybody wants to play second fiddle. But it doesn't matter if Michael Jordan would have been on the team with anybody else. They would have been playing second fiddle. Right. And not everybody can be pipping. Not everybody has that mindset. So I understand what you're saying about like, okay and Durant and other star players might not want to do. But the reason why they would have to do it is because he is better than all of what he's the best in the world. But you, and this is this is where you'd be disingenuous because I know, you know, basketball, and I know you've everywhere where to Jefferson, you're not gonna get away with this. You know, there's a difference between a Michael Jordan Kobe Bryant and the LeBron James from this perspective. They're professional scores. Give me the ball. I'll finish the job. I will close. That's not always LeBron. Lebron has been a playmaker from the days days in high school. So as a result LeBron being a basketball savant that? He is knowing mismanage men's mismatches. Knowing went mismatch is to create. Eight. He's the kind of person that will sit up back and set up a situation that will facilitate things for the team. But sometimes that doesn't work best for that ultimate superstar. That's secondary superstar right there. That's the point. What you want to say a basketball savant? You don't think then LeBron knows how to adjust his game? You don't think he knows? Okay. If Kevin Durant needs. They handle the ball if Jimmy Butler Hawaii Leonard me to handle the ball. And you don't think he knows how to answer that question. Why why why did Carvey everyone legally? I have no..

"You guys have been tight for a long time. But when I thought about, you know, who could best give us some insight and reflect on what mono Mets to the Spurs mint to the NBA you're the first guy I thought of. And so let's start here. Take me back you the Spurs from ninety seven zero five mono arrives in two thousand two, so the Spurs are established at this point as an elite team, and he's the fifty seven th pick, you know, nobody really knows much about what's your first impression. What's your first memory of mono coming in as a rookie with that phenomenal flowing hair from the nineteen seventies. About hair. A big nose. His nose before he comes through the door. Just joking, but he has a big, no kids me head. I kept him about his nose, but when he first got there, you know he was pretty unassuming when I walked in. I mean, no tall lanky European guys, you know, especially back then too early, two thousand European guys where more considered like finesse guys and foster type guys. So you know, you look and he's very, you know, thin framed and lanky. So you thinking that initially like, you know, the guy that knows probably has still can shoot, but you know, you're going to be it's going to be able to at that time, you know, compete against the NBA wings that was back in, you know, Koby tricking McGrane evens Carter d. Wade. So it's like the NBA payday far wing guys, go just wondered if you'd be able to withstand the pounding and all that stuff. But from day one, man, that guy, you know, started to win people over with his his heart competitiveness. And it really hasn't stopped. That's one thing. You know, you see all the tweets and you know, Instagram messages coming out, congratulate model and his career in all of them. They say, how you know competitor, he woke how how much he loved the game. And that's what people came to respect about him. And it started when I got there. How does that manifest itself? I mean, we know how dedicated to the game he was and what it's hard nose player. He was. When did you first notice it? Or when did you realize that like this kid is not gonna be just another European coming over just another late second round or for that matter? Forget where he came from. I mean, most guys, second round late second round or not necessarily known quantities or complete players, but what, what did you see? Like was it a specific scrimmage that you can recall practice where those traits all came out and you start to think, you know what? There's there's something else here..
