There's nothing that we can do to improve it bradley. Beal is not going to the los angeles clippers. There's no major upgrade that you can have. That can improve the los angeles clippers for next season if they lose four to the dallas mavericks. And i don't even think it's a situation where we're dealing with lack of talent.

"The Masterpiece Masters joining me tonight fresh off of our home. I've watched party over on hot bike, which was a lot of fun during the game tonight. Chris, how you doing, man? I'm doing. All right, you know. Yeah, we did lose and you know, the revs were hot garbage tonight, like off the people sing in the shop. But you know, a d is back, which is the big thing here. And again, I've kind of like I was saying the watch party. I just kind of went into this thinking bout going to split this two-game series with the Mavs anyway. So we lost tonight and, you know, they made a game out of it in the, in the 4th. But I think the Lakers I would look for them to take on Saturday. So that that's what's getting me through trip. Yeah. And that's just it, right? Is that they we get another shot at this Saturday. The Lakers play the Mavs, again, obviously, this isn't good because the Mavs are chasing the Lakers in the same things, but you can kind of atone for for tonight by getting the win, come Saturday. And hopefully by then Anthony Davis will be a little bit more in Rhythm. Feeling a little bit, a little bit better. We certainly saw a lot of rust but but let's just dive into wage. To start Anthony Davis back out on the floor. First of all was just great to see him out there. What was your impression of his first game back in over 2 months? Well, you know as his offense didn't come to him. I think he was over its first five shots or something like that. So I mean he's got to get some offensive Rhythm. I've seen some people in the chat saying like he was in bad shape. I don't know if I want to go that part maybe maybe just in terms of you know full court basketball conditioning but I mean, what do you expect? He's been out like a couple of months off. I would expect even though he was coming back tonight. I didn't expect him to come back and be in full form. I mean, he was only playing he supposed to play 15 minutes ended up playing 17 minutes so long, you know, it's just one of those things I think we we just you know, ye she is back but we just need to kind of root for his health going forward and just kind of know that he's going to take a while to get in Rhythm. So we're going to have to be patient before we see, you know, the playoff a d so to speak.

I was there for the inaugural season as well as the second season of the NBA 2K League since I mentioned during that second season and I was just absolutely enamored with every anything we had to say. I was like, this is just absolutely insane that a 2K League team would just bring on a mental skills coach and you were just all for you were you didn't even blink like and I when I said isn't this crazy or like yeah, but I love it. I think it's on the internet somewhere. I pull it up somewhere but insane. Yeah, I know that was I mean a really cool opportunity for me to get to talk about what I do on a platform and I mean, of course Like who who wouldn't want to find themselves in an opportunity like this? You know, I'm always grateful that the Mavericks have been very forward-thinking DK donkey 16,000. He's been with the mass for an extremely long time. He was the first full-time mental skills coach hired in the NBA. So that just gives you an idea of again how the Mavericks have always been on the Forefront of providing their place the resources, they need to just to be successful. So it only made sense that they did the same with their 2K team and I was just extremely fortunate to be part of that

"Well, actually no, it doesn't. Okay. So Mark Cuban recently said that the Mavericks. had. A chance to trade for Kobe rationally about two they were gonNA trade for Kobe Bryant and so it'd be Kobe Dirk together. No Trading Dirk. And I think in that scenario dirks legacy kind of takes a little bit of a hit because Kobe while they would win a lot. Kobe would probably get most credit for that dirk would become kind of like maybe the pouch assault type player but does that matter to you would you rather him do that and he gets multiple rings or would you rather just let Dirk Doodo you? Well, you trade for Kobe but dirks not the PALCA gestalt type. Okay. So you don't think it would affect her still would have been an all time. Great. He still would have been averaging twenty five points a game and him and Kobe would have just been basically unstoppable but dirk would still be dirk. He was that good. Now he doesn't get recognition on being on that level. But he's he's scored thirty thousand points. He's an MVP's a finals MVP. So he wouldn't have turned into a pouch assault. So I would. I traded cool and wet dirk win two three champions that trade if I remember correctly, it was like Josh Howard and Jason Terry and some picks well in the Lakers I think they changed their mind last minute and had a conversation with copious. Church Jerry West. Don't do that Okay Jerk. Good answer. Here's another. Would you rather okay so you can go back in time and change history for the two thousand, six finals. Bullets the Mavericks Still Only win one ring with Dirk. Would you rather change it to where they win in owed six or leave it to where they went in two thousand eleven? I think the two thousand eleven was a little bit sweeter yeah. So I would have taken. I would take thousand eleven. Yeah. I would take two thousand eleven to because what made it sweet was the fact that they lost six yeah and I think, would you say well, I'm pretty sure you would say that team that doesn't eleven heat team was better than the Oh sixteen. And the Oh six months the. Yes your heat weren't even very good. Yeah. But neither were the OH, six mavs. If you look at your roster twenty year old Devon. So the roster wasn't very good. It was just. As. Well, coach and Dirk was on another level. Yeah. Yeah. I think I would take us eleven to because like you said, it was sweeter that he team the big three big three Lakers. Litho. Jamie Blazers when everybody picked. Yeah. When they that whole run for it to be Dirks only championship I couldn't have asked for a better I mean not like beating the heat obviously yes. Because of Oh six because the big three because Lebron and the decision that was amazing. But also sweeping the Lakers and beating the sun I mean like. Is I and Dirk Dirk alleged and like I never seen somebody else do what he had done in those playoffs. Okay. Next. Would you rather? Okay, how many of these are there? There's two more shut your face. Oh my gosh I can't believe complaining. Okay would you rather? Yes. Keep Steve Nash but he doesn't become MVP NASH or keep Tyson Chandler, but he doesn't become defensive player of the year Tyson. Chandler. Would have kept Nash. Okay, because better player even. Being, MVP was an all star and he was tough and he was a big shot maker. It was Steve Nash. I mean it's a first ballot hall of Famer. So yeah, I would have taken. I would've kept Steve Nash as much as I love, Tyson. Yeah. Do you think that Nash would have become an MVP still? Okay. No 'cause what made him. The MVP was the sons were a five hundred team true and then he comes there and there's sixty team and their system to their system with Dan Tony where Nash Basically average eleven twelve assists a game. But? No but he was still an all star and he was still recognized as one of the best point guards in the league. Okay. Good answer. Last? Sincere complaining. Okay, this was a little complicated. Actually I need to read this time. Okay. All right. Okay. I. Got it. So the Mavericks in in the Yanni's draft, the Mavericks drafted Kelly Olympic now they eventually traded him stuff, but they drafted Kelly Olympic. Now would you rather have picked Jaanus in that draft? Bud Chances? Are you don't don't get Luca or would you rather? Oh, my God, what did I right here, but you never get Luca Luca. Or pick. Okay. Here's another traffic. Scenario is I'd rather have Luca because I know altogether does. I think there is a draft where the mavericks drafted Nick Physique is over Marcus Seoul okay. Would you rather fix that draft pick marcus all over Nick Physique is in that case, you probably get Luca or would you rather? Lucas. You the answer is. Okay, how do you remember the physiques Nick Physique? Physique is I'm pretty sure is the American way was facilitated sounds. Better. Okay. So you pick marcus all over Nick Physique is get. Because of that or pig jaanus. Over Olympic but beyond but you never get Luca Oh my God I'm taking Luke. Okay. The the the honest draft was like nine years ago we got to move on. We'll I'm just saying mark is saw that was at least twelve years ago. Yeah. So. By now when Louis Traffic Luca he probably would have been playing for the raptors to that's the point is that if you had taken marcus all you would get Luca but you would also have markelle soul while you have him who's amazing and maybe win another ring and you still get Luca in the end. So, why wouldn't I take that scenario. That's because right now you would have jaanus now and you would have gone with Dirk for a little bit and maybe they went to ring together maybe because Dirk was old. So probably not. which what are you taking Luca scenario scenario you know I'M GONNA have to agree with you. Okay. That's that's good. That's good. Okay. So that's the game of would you rather I actually have a few games lined up that I think is exciting is that one? Well it depends it depends sometimes things just happened that I'm not planning on. So why have I have another game plus another game and oh and then I have this other game that I think is would be kind of cool. So but we'll do those in in other episodes. Okay. That's it for this episode. Thank you guys for listening Those were our predictions I. Don't know. Let us know if you made some predictions that turned out to be totally accurate or that turned out to be totally garbage you gotta show proof. Yes. You can't just say you know I predict. Memories. Back to win a game in the playoffs although somebody tweeted someone re tweeted someone else's tweet and in that original tweet, this person tweeted that. that. He had a dream that hit his step back game winner over the clippers and this was before luke did it. Okay I'm just saying anyways. Chances of that are not that unlikely. tweeted it before it happened. Yes. But with the thousands or millions of basketball fans all. Out having a dream, one of them's bound to have a dream that. Step back. Over the clippers. Yeah I think it was just over the clippers. Maybe, he did say it was over. Reggie Checks Reggie Jackson. What's his face? Yeah. anyways I'm going to end it there because now we're just rambling but remember the Titan this is all. On a top ten in Dallas Mavericks blog. Among the. Number. Four of eleven of the Eleven Dallas Mavericks Blogs this is a top ten one DALLAS CAST DOT com. So I would highly encourage you to visit the site. and everything else. That's cool.

"Euroleague with seven. And Dwight Powell currently holds number seven for Dallas Mavericks and you would think like okay well. You should just give it up and both Luga and wider, such nice guys. I don't think that was ever a consideration. It wasn't like a buying a jersey. Nova rock guys tuition. She's like I'm the rookie here and you're the veteran at this point and you know just lost seventy seven said. It's my one I have to real qualms with Luca from being on love Luca everything about him the seventy seven thing. Thing. I can't get onboard with, but it is what it is also I feel this way about pat. Mahomes like he he wears too many like there's a lot going on so many like bracelets and you know response and stuff like I. AM concerned for him like dude like imagine how much more mobile you could be without all that way and you down and Luca to me feels like he's wearing a lot stuff. He's got the shirt underneath sharing, and then he's got like like a shoulder sleeve and. Must Take you thirty minutes to get ready to put your Jersey on so a. Training Staff I, trust. They have one of the best in the League, and so they're telling to wear compression shirts in tights, and whatever he's just saying. He has a really great shoe game to for anyone. Shoes rate shooting and again. He's a Real Madrid fan an alum. I guess you could put that way so you know their champions as of late so Yeah, let's let's get all that symmetry going Beca after six on twitter you can find her tweeting about a variety of things often about John or their child or The maps or whatever else is going on, it'll be much more sports now that we have sports to tweet about during coronavirus. It's just thank you things. My two year old says. My absolute last one give us even though sports are back. People are still watching a lot of things on streaming platforms. Give us something. You really enjoyed that you netflix or something here has of light. And so two things that I watched lately that I've enjoyed tremendously. one is the morning show on Apple TV. With Jin in in recent and Reese Witherspoon Steve Corral, really good deep dive into. It's kind of like a Matt Lauer Time into the me too movement, and I think that's been. That was an awesome show that I enjoy tremendously and the other for a little more lighthearted is the marcoses nasal which I have found to be refreshingly entertaining. Okay well right on I. Get emails from them because of explanation stuff. And I've always found it to be annoying. By Hey if somebody likes it, that's all that matters to me so. Okay well. I can promise you. I won't watch it. But I'll at least think about at the very inca. Ruins losses. Rg are some strong initials like you know just like I have to go get some monogrammed because that looks really good rl. I didn't change my name until right before our daughter was born on, so they're newer initials for me, so go get monogram off to go get some. You'll get like a pillow or like a thermal. Or something like you gotta look good. Thank you so much for taking the time, and for giving US imagine a one. Big Time things to Rebecca. Lawson JANAF for taking the time to join us again. Our LG fantastic initials. She is on twitter at Beca after six Luca Danni. Special players on the NBA. And look the mavs did lose their scrimmage on Sunday to the Indiana Pacers. That's fine, but they did. beat the Lakers the night before Beckon I talked so. Good batch! We'll see what happens there. The Spurs will not be competing to high degree in the bubble to the mavs certainly will be. That'd be interesting to watch. What happens there. Something else on Sunday, if you care about this. Jalen, Smith Darren Smith showed up in the NFL top one hundred look the NFL top one hundred. We have finally reached. The point with this thing is going on so long that it is widely recognized and acknowledged how. Of Not Great Quality, this list is. It's cool that they're cowboys. Players on their be wrong. But. It's not that great of a list and shared out to NFL films. They do an incredible job. But it just the way this particular the grading system as you want to call the voting system whatever it is. No, not not really. Not really reflective of what I think true value, NFL, but hey, that is what it is. Remember on today's episode of girls, talk and boys. We are starting something that we are all doing here on the podcast. Now we are building our collective, fifty, five, fifty, three. Whatever you WANNA, call it fifty, three fifty five. Man Roster. Kelsey and Megan, starting with the offensive line today tomorrow Tony I will get into the defensive line. We'll fill in the other position groups as we go on throughout the week on talk on the star, broadcasting the boys and finishing up on Friday once again with gt be, we will put together the roster that we think the Dallas cowboys could possibly have a training camps and said don't miss out.

"They're still as long they have Luca kristaps. They're going to be fine, but set curry really provides that kind of extra dose of energy and for anyone who watched the scrimmage last night. They they would see that. Okay well my last one for you, and this is the obviously the like you've got to do it thing. And we're obviously in some unprecedented times But how far did you see this map seem going in the playoffs structure or the season playoff structure that the NBA has in the bubble in Orlando. You mean just like in terms of like all the way versus. Yeah, yeah, what's their ceiling here so I? Mean they're ceiling is definitely the championship this year and I. I'm not going to be coy about got because it's really everything clicks into place for them that we could see a ron kind of like twenty eleven where it was. An underdog maps team. No one really thought they were going to do anything and they just kept Kinda. Surprising teams. You look back at some of their signature wins this season already on the women's the. The Milwaukee box earlier in the season comes to mind where they didn't even have Luka that was a game where porzingas kind of went out of control and one that for them, and so I think you look at some of those signature wins I mean there. They're a strange team. In that they they seem to beat. The teams are supposed to be. Don't show up against teams. They're supposed to show up against sometimes You know if they have bad injury luck if they meet the wrong team in the first round of the playoffs. The wrong team. Who are you scared the clippers? And he who must not be named for sure I mean. I Leonard Ban sorry do. Well so I live in San Diego for those now. Again how dare you? Yeah, whatever? Why is kind of how I got into watching the NBA so I, was unfortunate for me that he had to be a spur for so long for you, guys, said Yeah, so it's I would be afraid of the clippers. Absolutely. I mean we're not. I don't think we're going to get to the point. Where the batter facing up against the Lakers but I'd be afraid. Lakers, too, so just you know. Did the teams that you think would? Would be scary or scary and get the nasty. Get a matchup against Denver, who had beaten a couple times this season I'm something like that I. think that would be ideal, and you know if they could get an easy path to a to a Western Conference Championship. I think that might work out for them. It's just the right combination of lock injuries and and matchups, but I think I think that's absolutely the ceiling and I don't think there's many people who disagree if you watch live. Okay all right well this. This was a good kind of primer for this week. That's coming up obviously with the restart and everything cowboys are have this like one foot in training camp, but not really because of all the testing and everything gone on. This is a good kind of you know. Moment away to to Focus Sports Bac I mean that's really all it matters. and and we hope you and John are doing your family. BECA Gimme a prediction for the cowboys. This year. Gosh well assuming they play normal schedule right? Yeah, well, let's assume normal schedule. No interruptions I know that's a great assumption at this time virus. Gosh that's hard. Ten wins. Okay. So. You got to win in the division. There are good enough to win the NFC. naty depends on what the eagles do. Always depends on what the eagles do I know. They are the worst. The Eagles severe the coli of the NFL. They're the worst ten wins feels fair. Like they felt like a fair floor before all of this. This is obviously an incredibly random factor, and so this this concern, something one way or the other in a very strong directions depending on. How does really interested to see what the new coaching staff does I? Think that's GONNA. Be I mean so. Many people were waiting for Jason. Garrett to to write off into the sunset. Other choice words that you might WanNa throw. Sunset or something else sure. Whatever and I'm really really interested to see how that coaching staff that because I have plenty of friends, and I'm sure you do too like all cert- following the cowboys again when Jason Garrett gone, and so we go yeah. Isn't it crazy that what feels longer ago because it's the same Jason Garrett, taking over the cowboys or the mavs title. Jason Garrett taking over the cowboys that was just the title is so fresh in my mind because it was the last time they wanNA title and it was so exciting. Jason Garrett feels like he's been the cowboys coach for like nine thousand years. Yeah I just yeah that I remember that like that. Two thousand eleven summer on people were like well because every year there's always like like the year. The giants won the world series of both of them. People are like well. The forty niners could do it and then the bay area. You know whatever is I. Try like pick a city that like when everything we were like this and that because at the time the Rangers were all that was their peak world series. So. Jason can have done. That's That's okay. That was tyrant. Smith's rookie year see like one seventy seven gave birth to like a whole generation that would give birth to..

"And the beginning of the season was very much. He was rusty. He was absolutely rusty. He was still trying to find his place in Mavericks team where he'd only ever played for other team so new coach coaching staff new city. Incoming off injury, having not played basketball I think almost eighteen months, and so that was raw. It was a rough start to the season, but once he got fully healthy, fully comfortable. There were a few games and because of various injuries. He and Luke actually did not play together that much before this season stopped, but when they were on the court together for a few games, they really started to develop that chemistry and porzingus. Porzingus by himself. Luca was heard little wild with an injury earlier in the season, and Porzingas of gotten his feet under him by that point, and he was really taking command of that community. That team with Lou Kaoh, and so you know Luga. Mania whatever you WANNA, call it. It really does I think the PORZINGAS story does get kind of lost in that because he really has found a good place in this team as The calls co-number-one I mean. Look. It definitely drives this team. There's no question about it. That was aengus is a force unto himself, and we are very very blessed as a city to have this duo in Dallas I'm trying to think of another pair like that. kind of CO number ones. That's hard. Made maybe. This is hurtful. I realized the Oh six he. D- weight and chat kind of code, number, one's different different perspectives different. You know different roles different different qualities that they brought How many free throws shooting game through whatever it was like five thousand? and. It's about. But okay, so my I'm I'm leading into sort of the one. Oh one part of this for anyone that is going to watch the mavs for the first time I'm talking. Sit Down, legitimately watch them. How do you watch the Dow's matters because it's there's a way. How do you watch the mess? Interesting to know about watching the Dallas Mavericks. Is that when Lubyanka is on the court? You'RE NOT GONNA be able to keep your eyes off them. He is dynamic. We talked about it already. He's that dynamic of a player It's really as it's he. He passes. He shoots. He's he's droid all. He's all these things, and it's very hard to keep your eye off of them. So when he's on the court and he's running that offense. He is amazing. He's electric. The thing to know about these Dallas Mavericks is they actually have Right now the best offense in NBA history. They're better than the two thousand eighteen nineteen warriors. They're better than some of those. Lakers teams they are. They actually buy. Stats have be best offense in the NBA history It's evident when you watch them play. They are offensive machine. At the same time. They are kind of middle to the bottom of the league defense, and so that's something that they really have to hustle on. Really have to work on. They do have some guys. You know Dr Anthony Smith in Mexico, who I mentioned before who who can bring some energy on that end, but they really lost a couple of guys to injury this year they lost Dwight. Powell was a huge piece in feeling that would that dirk left, and who continues to be a leader on the team, so he's with them in the bubble. Even though he's not playing, so that has heard a lot. But you know so the first thing to know about watching ads. Luca and the second thing is you know the historic offense and the defense that they have to make, or and then I would say the biggest thing to watch for with them is honestly Rick Carlisle. Their head. Coach is as you know being both absence I dan. There's not many coaches who can rival Gregg Popovich in this league, and I always go back to. There was a series and I don't remember which playoffs it was that it was a playoff series of mavericks and no business, being twenty fourteen. And Rick Carlisle took a bad. Dallas Mavericks Team to seven games against the San Antonio Spurs in the first round, and I don't think anyone still knows how did it? And, he is just a master of in game adjustments. He's crazy with rotations. He will throw anything out on the court to see if it sticks and I think that's something that other teams in Orlando. We're going to have to lock You're right. It was the first round of the two thousand fourteen playoffs that was the last spurs title, the seven Games Against Dallas, and at that that was the spurs team that was coming off having lost in seven of the heat the year before when missed the free throw that nobody ever blamed him for because now co is untouchable in the eyes of everybody for whatever stupid reason. But and then San Antonio went through Portland, and then the thunder in the Western Conference finals, and then destroyed the Okay, so that's how you watch the mavs What. What what's what's the x factor too vague like that? But what's what's the like? If this wild crap happens, that could only happen to the Dallas Mavericks because again. This is the cowboys. Stuff that could only happen to the cowboys? Yeah so I mean the thing about the cowboys or anything about the mountains is actually think they're pretty good analog for Cowboys Jones I. Am a huge cowboys Fan, actually cowboys fan from Bergerson before I was even a Mafsfan so I I watched the cowboys just as much as I, watched ads and I think Sean John Toyed with getting into it too, and he's been on the edge, so we have to push them over we really do. He claims he's a cowboys fan, but I'm going to believe it as soon as he watches the game same intensity I do. But anyway I think the cowboys Mavericks Similar places in a strange way, the offense and Kinda So-so defense is a great way to you know kind of do that. An exciting young players, too. You know it's a really interesting. It's interesting place that they're in right now and so. Shrunken with Christmas that I think we got off track. Me What the question was. What like an x factor, Oh yeah, so anyway, you know I think with the cowboy is like you always see that offensive line, and if they have a player her, you know, it becomes a little more dicey and I. Think for the mavs. It's almost similar thing with their starting. If they have a guy in that. Starting five in industry does can vary from time to time, but if you take out a Luca, you take a Porzingis or you take out a good example. Here would be Steph curry and I think you know if you're looking for an DR set. Korea's probably that because he really provides expert church shooting at the mavs need. He's a key piece in their starting rotation most of the time and he you know he does get hurt from time to time and so I think if you take out seth curry..

"Have you want to put that? Whereas the mavs do feel like this like like when you go, get a puppy like you go to the breed, or whatever and like they've got the. Whole Litter, whatever in that Lucas kind of I mean obviously the face of that, but he does sort of exemplify that that energy in that pops it that makes them fun to root for fun to watch. Yeah, and for those who don't know Luca has had a professional career before he came to the NBA Hala. Madrid, that's right. Yes, and so he was, he was the disinflation coming out of that league. And you know going back to even the NBA draft. When he was selected, I'm actually still in shock. From that night. He was able to fall as far as he did and I think some of that reputation for for Spurs fans! Fans out there euros being softwares y'all well. No and we've had that with dirk inside. The Mavericks are just really not afraid of these international players. They have great international scouting, and they have several players on their team. who kind of they've been able to bring out from overseas Maxxie? CLEOPA for those who don't know him. As a great example comes from Dirks, hometown works for Germany and he's been another key piece that they've been able to kind of internationally scout and find Lucas just those who haven't seen him. If you're just getting into NBA, I encourage you to watch the maps they are looking at is just an absolute your point. To Watch lay. He clearly loves the game. He's an amazing passer. which is something I feel like you don't see enough of in the NBA and he's just. He's just join all. It's fun. It really is the best word you said it, not me, but. and. Milwaukee Kinda has a flair of that. But they do have this this flair of like well. You know John. This is already arrive. We're we're like meet a rival. It's like like when you're going on vacation and the plane is landing. That's where the mavs whereas the the box are like on the way to baggage claim like you've already like breed some of the air, and whatever it's a little bit different but so there is a lot of excitement I will say so I am the Spurs and a Master of my work has been very tied to the Dallas area. I loved the. Match team that was kind of the first driver really rooted for them. And I've always kind of navigated the line between the Spurs and Mafsfan and I feel like the physical representation of that these days is bogue on Bo bon as a spur so i. vividly I went to Spurs game with my family, and I had told them Oscars this guy just watch. It's it's I. Don't even know how to describe it. Joy is a different word for Boban. and I was like it's. He's just this hero like he'll. He'll get into game and everyone's going to go out and my wife. My parents like no way no wait sure enough boban gets in the game and he's. He's like a mascot, but that sounds belittling, but he's not explained Bob on Ianovich. Please oh. Gosh, I don't know how you can explain someone like on I. Think my favorite thing in this is like maybe gives you want insight into Bovin. He's either I don't remember whether he's like the sponsor, or like a CO owner of this company called the Big Blanket Company and they make these legates. You probably get up on instagram and I think our new managing editor at mass. Meanwhile, Kirchner's actually aw, when for his wife? For her birthday? They're like massive sized blankets that like Boba on can actually been under. Is the biggest human being you have ever seen. He looks like A. Story Like massive person and he is the most fun percent he joyful again like know. This is part of the reason that this Mavericks Team I just place together so well as the just all have these personalities that just gel really well together, and he loves to joke around in play jokes with his teammates. There was a video going around not long ago of him with teammate Maxxie Cleveland Messing around he just he seems to make friends everywhere. He goes, and it's just he. He's you know he's not a full game guy for those who are called Navajo have of Oman. He's that. That guy who's GonNa come in you know high efficiency few minutes and get used to that energy back and give some of the other big men amrried in, but he he actually played really well in the scrimmage last night. He was on fire girl while they're so he's he's just man I was so excited when they got bobin and he's GonNa be fun to watch second leading score on the mavs in discriminate against the Lakers you mentioned makes friends everywhere he goes. Get a cup of coffee back to that analogy in Philadelphia and Tobias Harris, and he the Bobi Toby. But like the there was just there was something special. Because he's a, he's a spur like at heart he's he's a spur type player And when he when he got the offer that he got from Detroit and he left, there was a report that he didn't WanNa go just because he loved to pop was really like dude. You have to go why? You need to go. Make this money like this is an incredible opportunity. So that's that's what I think. The mavs kind of exemplify. There's there's somebody like like your favorite TV show, but your favorite Sitcom that has like a character that everyone can identify with. There's somebody that like you empathize with and enhance characteristics. You enjoy Luca's obviously the face of that, but there are these sort of supporting characters in that way You mentioned Porzingis. I feel like he gets lost I. Feel likes like so many people just kind of because of the Luke of it all forget that. That he is the superstar, so the interesting thing about Porzingas, he was the biggest question mark for the Mavericks Coming into this season I'm go. He was coming off that big ACL tear. The Mavericks traded for a million. He was injured. Nine knock..

"Would you give up? Xavier Woods the next two first round picks for the cowboys, a third round pick next year to get Jamal and on top of that. You have to pay him all right on top of all that you have to pay him very soon. And if if things go south with him, we saw how he acted with the jets, and I'm not trying to kind of ride both sides of the fence, but that's a real factor. And maybe that's just the jets of it seen a lot of players. Be Disgruntled with the way that organization treats them, but that is. That is an inordinate amount to any player and I think it was very wise of the Dallas cowboys to not be the ones to pay that price. But yeah so. It is what it is, but Jamal. Adams, by the way who does now play for the Seattle seahawks will take on the Dallas cowboys in week three the cowboys do visit Seattle and three soon posses in happened, so it will be interesting to say the least to watch Jamal Adams play against the Dallas Cowboys, considering especially what Earl Thomas did in the game. He played against the cowboys after they did not trade for him. yeah, so good types. Speaking of good times. We had a very time with Rebecca Lawson Genaro here on the podcast and. Get ready to learn about the Dallas Mavericks. It was a fun conversation and look I'm a Spurs Fan, but I'm a spurs fan. Mafsfan we are rare breed. We exist, so let's learn about the Dallas Mavericks here is Rebecca Lawson Genaro right here on the OCHO. Pleased to be joined now by the legendary, the iconic, the internationally famous the one, and only you've heard from her better half I hope short, say here on our podcast airways, the one and only Rebecca. Lawson Genaro are LG. Some strong initials, Rebecca how goes and great I Jay. Thanks for having me. I think you guys are the first husband and wife to both appear on our network, which is a pretty big deal. If I, say so myself well. We are both kind of a big deal. I think so myself to. To connect the DOTS everybody your husband. John is a big deal at espy nation. The bigger steal. Some would say if anyone asks if he asks rather at that's what I said but yeah, so John was on around the Super Bowl We were doing a lot of things together, so his voice was heard he and I I know we interviewed Cynthia Free Live together and we did a bunch of roundtables and things like that and so You know in typical. Genaro fashion everything. I've learned about your family. keeping things a little bit random a little bit off. Off The beaten path in a good spirit way, and so we tease this last weekend. This is our Monday episode, but we're recording on Friday the day after the Dallas Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers in their scrimmage inside the bubble and I figured you know a lot of our fans love the Mavericks and so the restart is happening. You're the queen of all things. Dallas Mavericks So, what do we need to know like like? If anybody because I think there are a lot of people that now especially. Maybe if they weren't big fans or saying, there's nothing else you know I I want to get into this now. WHO's this Luca Guy? He thinks seventy seven cool on basketball uniform. For some reason give give us the four one one on the maps. The Mavericks Are Really Really Fun Team, and if you're just getting into them for the first time, or even if you're longstanding fan, this is in my opinion. One of the best times in in their history to be maverick Stan NFL if you will. Try to steer away from that because I think it's Corny, but sure and. On they have maybe one of the most, if not the most exciting young player in the NBA in Lugano, which who was the rookie of the year last year? Who is an MVP candidate this year? Who might even be a candidate for most improved player, even coming off his rookie of the year campaign into just one of the more elite superstar in the We'd already in his second year. they have a duo in Luca in kristaps, porzingis. The former nick who came over in a trade last year I was during the Super Bowl that that trait happened, but the one before this most recent, obviously yeah, exactly and so that that was a big deal, and they've been able to really take the season to gel on both dealing with injuries. When the NBA stop do now they both have time to get healthy and you know from what I saw. Saw last night. It's looking great, and they have a really great supporting cast around them to do a little lack in depth in some areas, but you know set career for anyone who watched the scrimmage last night, the brother of Stephan Kore- and is an amazing sharp shooter in his own right, and you know he's going to be a key piece for them to run through. Orlando this this restart. Restart of that and you know. Jj Buran has been around the team for forever veteran leadership. They just have some amazing pieces. It's really special team and you know they all love each other. They have fun together. If you follow them on social media, they're always doing hilarious things. You know hanging out together and it's just. It's just been a joy to watch not away the beginning of the season as they. They started to come together as a team. But you know just this bottle that they're all in together and the fund that they're having you know getting play basketball again together, and for those who don't know Rick Carlisle whose their head coach, one of the greatest coaches in the NBA, and he's going to be obviously one of the big keys to success well, yeah, the mavs have a youthful energy. My wife and I just moved with San Antonio forever very different than the spurs the Spurs. Have like I mean, even you know circa twenty fourteen when when they were still operating at an elite level.

"United back in the Champions League. What a find a soccer! It was really been enjoying lots of sports being back. Obviously, sports have been back to some degree for a while the Premier League. Obviously MLS NWF Sal. PJ Tour Congratulations Michael Thompson winning the triple M as I like to college the NBA. NBA Kinda back scrimmaging. anyways. That's going to be a topic on today's episode is you'll see soon enough. And of course baseball is back so It's been really nice to have sports to watch my family and I. We've talked about this a lot. We moved to the Rio Grande Valley in Hurricane Hanna has has been around. We're all good. Thank God but it was a lot of wind and a lot of rain, so lots of picking up Steph in the yard. You know how that goes. It was quite a weekend for news when it comes. dowse cowboys, although not really. And, we, of course, we do have a great interview to get to today. We'll get to the news I, but you will hear from Rebecca. Lawson Genaro Rebecca. Is is is the queen of all things Dallas, Mavericks and training camp is here and we're certainly we've got a lot of stuff going on here on the podcast network with regards to that. We'll explain that in a second as well, but I thought you know. We have a lot of followers that also obviously for the House Mavericks Because of the whole Dallas Thing Dallas Dallas Dallas. ETC So Rebecca was kind enough to take some time to kind of give us know a lot of people you know in sports coming back maybe didn't watch the MLS before and said well. The MLS is back. How give it a try and I know a lot of people are saying well. The NBA's coming back this week, and so I wanNA watch and I wanted to this whatever and so have you don't know a lot about analysis mavericks. This is your kind of just primer I know. We had the great conversation from the bubble. Girl's talking voice is freak with Kelsey and MEG so out. This will be your mavs. We'll get there. I did mention that we do have some fun stuff in store for you this week on the network starting with today's episode of Talking Boys, and you can expect that later on today in your podcast feed, we are building a collective fifty-three. Heavy you. WanNa look at fifty five man roster for the Dallas cowboys so calcium. Maybe we'll get. Things started today they'll work. Work on the offensive line tomorrow Tony will work on the defensive line. We'll fill things out all of our shows. We'll be working on different position groups, and then at the end of the week we'll have one final fifty three man roster at the beat podcast network. Put together, so look forward to that starting later today with girls talking boys onto the news though of the weekend. The perhaps the most minimal thing. The Dallas Cowboys did get all of their draft class under contract, the entire two thousand and twenty Dallas cowboys rookie draft class has all signed their contract, so no holdouts, and and they're really. We've mentioned the several times ever since the CBA of two thousand eleven. There are rarely hold out sock given the rookie wage scale although somewhere out there. Joey Bosa! So that is going on in the world of Contracts. If you care about those things, we know that the salary cap floor for two thousand and twenty one will be one hundred seventy five million dollars. It is expected. To be, that could be more if The financial situation is a prosperous one for the NFL, but. The financial climate of our country and our world. It's hard to see that happening It's fair to wonder how to navigate it. Although at the very least the cowboys are hardly the only team that is up a bit of a creek from a salary cap perspective next season the Philadelphia Eagles. Ho Boy it's it's GonNa be interesting to see how they handle their cap situation next year. Assuming. It is a hundred seventy five million dollars before we get to the Jamal Adams thing because you know the Jamal Adams thing did happen. Sunday evening there was a report from NFL networks. Tom Pella Palacio the Dallas cowboys second year wide receiver John Johnson has been placed on the reserve covid list. In fact, six NFL players have been placed on this list. This is obviously a new thing. We've all heard of reserve and injured reserve and things like that. Here is what the Reserve Cova List is, and I wrote about this at our side. If you want to go, check it out for yourself. Blog on the boys DOT COM. This new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for covid nineteen, or who has been quarantined after having. Having been in close contact with an infected person or persons, if a player falls into these categories, their club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve covid nineteen list per agreed upon NFL. NFL PA policy clubs are not permitted to comment on players medical status other than referring to roster status clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for covid nineteen, so again is important to mention here that because he's on this list that does not necessarily mean that John Johnson himself tested positive for covid nineteen. It's possible he did. It's also possible that he came in close contact with somebody. Is a second year wide receiver in his pet cat season a lot of people. Were definitely going to be hiding of John. Johnson and so that is the update on him. Five other players did join him across the NFL here You know moving on as best as we can. On Saturday it happened. Jamal Adams The star safety for the New York jets, although anymore was traded, and we've certainly spent a lot of time here on the podcast network on the side on social media in our own imaginations, thinking and wondering and talking and speculating about. The possibility of Jamal Adams joining the Dallas cowboys we all know. Jamal Adams is the best safety in the. One of the best defenders in the NFL one of the most special players in the NFL, but the important, the most important word, actually in that sentence that hold the scripture is safety, and the reality is. That's not a high value position in the NFL and we've all been say how come. The cowboys haven't done this do this. Go all in etcetera, etcetera etcetera. Somebody went all in and that somebody is the Seattle seahawks the price at the Seattle. seahawks paid to acquire Jamal Adams from the jets who did just about everything he could to get out of New York. Was Steep. So the SEAHAWKS are receiving in this trade, Jamal items, and the jets Fourth Round, pick in twenty, twenty two, so not even next year's draft the following year's draft. So. That's worth noting. The SEAHAWKS ARE GIVING UP Bradley McDougal safety in his own right, a first round pick in two thousand, twenty, one eight third round, pick in two thousand and twenty one and a first round pick in two thousand and twenty two. That's two first round picks and a third round, pick and a safety in Bradley macdougald for Jamal Adams and a fourth round pick two years from now. No thanks to that Jamal. Adams very special very awesome. It would have been a lot of fun and we would have had a lot of great times. Certainly had the cowboys traded for him, but that is way too steep a price to pay for really anything other than a quarterback honestly. Or maybe a star pass rusher I. That's a lot I mean Jamal Adams special, but I mean look. The seahawks have have really kind of made their money in the Russell Wilson era. By, not drafting players in the first round, but that's just and look I mean I think a fairer reality here is. We have no idea what college football is going to look like this season. I mean so. What does a first round pick in two thousand and twenty one really look like what is the pool? You're drafting? What what? What information is available on those players when you look at it from a competitive lens like? Those are fair points. However, this is so much, and if you just replace Bradley macdougald with Xavier, Woods..

"So you're you're technically player development coach but it with the Mavericks are also defined as being as I've mentioned in the opening handling coach which is which is a unique thing encounter. Mark Cuban the guy who say you know what this this is kind of important to the game. Why not have one of the Great Ball? Handlers of all time doing this what like what's the day-to-day like how many guys are you working with. Everybody's visit specific civic guys. It's just the guys who come to you and want to everybody you know play play them. INDICIA got moved up to a defensive coach. So the Defensive Side You know great coaching staff with Dow Armstrong. Jamal Mosey you know. Mike Share Mike wina coach. Of course it's the great recall. You know saying yeah and you know this is. This is a great thing for you know. Mark Cuban's innovator. So you know he he do things a little bit different and when I first got there. It was more for A boy handling because even though I was doing the full player development at Providence. And you know Oh input. And that's the kind of got there that's got their attention. Because in providence you know put in like four guys in the NBA. Chris done now been been to Bryce and different people and then I was working with you know Ben Gordon Qudos in the NBA. Ready like Atanas working for different people and just had a good rapport with high school. Kids styles working out because they wanted to learn how to dribble and once I got to In Dallas Komi to be a Jubilant coach you know by the was just doing where everybody so now you know you. Have you know you have. Of course you know Zinnias Luca you know Harrison Barnes West Matthew. Tim Hardaway junior stuff. You know I work with everybody on a daily basis you to get a great quote. There's a story by Michael there was in the Washington Post last spring. A great quote from you dribbling his footwork. The hands are just an illusion. Poetry Man I love that it really really is because about the German is a lot of people that could drill by watch and this. This is not an one stuff like that but you as you can see people that dribble and they can't go nowhere on the court can't get by but then you see me like man. This guy is amazing. Handle this I. I don't understand why this isn't that because everything is everything is in the footwork and everything is about angles. Everything about space. Everything's about when to make you can move. Everything is about like are you stop on a breaks and Change Direction. How you change direction and don't decelerate? You know you keep going fast. So you know for me. Jim always been like a science. So you know you know when people see they like Oh you know you could teach my jewelry and stuff like that. But it's it's way more within that because you're teaching them how to play too at the same time and how to gain advantage on the person defendant you you know so you know. So that's why that's why I was always weird when people always ask me well do you think is the who think is the best dribbler? NBA who you think this doing. I give him my answer there. Like what you say battle I said and I'm like because Madrid and I grew up playing defense. I understand the difference speed. I drew ones people that can handle the ball in a a NASA. People don't understand is way too because you could see so at this point like you have an these like my close friends so you have. If somebody like Jamal Crawford Nate Robinson and then in Italy ever. Oh you should let tomorrow play the point guard. And there's like no because it takes two different types of jubilant to be a point guard and to be like everything you do is for him to get his shot off you know and it's like even like with Kobe. Even coverage is for him negate shadow of his not to stand there and run offense. You know. That's the person that can handle the ball like he can do. Both you know different things like that so when people don't understand that so you now it's like okay. Career has the best hand okay for our K.. Kimball have the best breaks an NBA. I mean he could go one hundred mile stop wanting to die and change anes directions. And that's why you see him in when you play Uconn hit the big shot. Is everybody like the step back. It's like no. He just ran fast and stopped untapped and the man kept going. So that's what I mean by breaks in different things and you know there's a lot there's a lot of stuff that go into it but I really know this stuff and I know people who cadence is is is certain dribbling anyway he got and if you slow it down and watch it. He does the same move every time just from different if angles so so it looks different but at the same is the same cadence real quick. Before I let you go with the Shammgod your signature move your. That should be trademarked. Somewhere right off his trademark who I've seen using inhibit who who named it. Do you remember who actually said you know what this is this. Is this move. Where you switching hands on the crossover it now is bears your name? Who like kids? Yeah that's because it's funny because when I did it when I did in NC Double A. Tournament. This is so weird because like when I read comments into like Oh oh I saw this move similar some some this and that did you see this and I'm like well I love my. Why told me about it? I've never you never seen me in a press conference day. Hey this is a sham. Got To do this new movie. Called the Sham. I've like I came on one summer when I came home announced I was going to the draft so as I'm going I played in a play two games in Park Street Ball Tournament and I did the move and then like two weeks later kid came to me like I'm just playing around with this little kid and he don't know why you so he's like Young the shampoo and I'm like I just I thought he did it and then from that day on. I just heard kids like Oh this is this is a a sham. This is this is this is like you know. And there's one of those things that's just like so amazing. It's so humbling because you know who would think that a person like Mike played twenty games in NBA and he's just as famous or more famous than probably my whole draft class if people are unaware by the way bleacher report. I think we did our video teams. Yeah like a little mini feature on this move like two years ago folks like go. Google Shammgod bleacher report for like. There's a whole it. It was a very cool. It was nice. And that's and that's the thing is because and I think it's because like because we live in the era of the Internet and social media and things like that so when I was dribbling then because because even the sham even even the move even the movie called Shambaugh to me is like the week is move move. I probably everyday dribble it. So it was like one of those things where you got You see like fifty cent right. The rapper he may in the club right. So that's like his his biggest song so whenever he called. Do a show something. Everybody always WanNa hear in the cloud but if you listen to like other wraps you have is probably so many other rafters way better than in the club lyrically but the cadence everybody want to hear the club so even like I'm in my first year with the Wiz play some league I'm doing in whole I feel so much pressure in some early because everybody every time I came down core no you gotta do the shame. Shame shame and I'm like Oh this is way bigger than myself but I just think it's just I just think thing is repayment. Because when I was young I did so much jubilant and everybody knew about it word of mouth. So if I've I grew up in the social media area era era I would have had this then in in the moment that you would have been a house a highlight. You know what I'm saying. It's always like so. It's just like this car. For instance if you watch Encarta Dunk when we played the McDonald's of America game the dunce he did in the dunk contest. is if you Google al.. McDonald's America Donka is the same exact dunks but because it wasn't wasn't social media stuff so it's like now and they said so everything they see now is like Vince game payback for everything he was doing at high school and I feel I feel. Oh same way. Who's got the best shammgod you've ever seen? Probably got to be to me Chris. Paul in macari. Yeah I always out of us and people always ask me. I always say them to say the one that I enjoyed the most. Yeah because we're US really don't do moves and stuff like that so when he did it a it took on another life of his own because this is a person that don't do moves and then he threw a nice pass with it so it was like but Yeah Kharian Chris Paul I think because the one that I think as far it was one popularized it in the NBA because he did the most efforts and then curry and you don't you don't see it often guys you probably don't feel confident trying to pull it off game action actions so then when they pull it off his like. Wow 'cause I Anthony Davis one game and I was like wow everybody can hear me saying it and all the table sitting here with us you actually had there is now now the Shammgod shoe so if people want to really pay tribute to you the move any part of that tell me about it. So Puma Puma actually put your your name on the shoes and it says nineteen ninety seven on the back. Is that because of your draft year. No that's because the move is done in Arizona and then inside the shoe is like for men doing moves and then on different you gotta gs for Gosh Shannon's got so you know this is a good thing and partnership with pullman. Emma is amazing you know. The poem is doing great things got clogged courts. They got the high was just came out you know and his all plan should be you know to Cli- who's the man back. In the days. In the thing we cloud that was so amazing he was he was he was street and corporate. All in one you know. 'cause he's that'd be on court way Tom you know and things like that and then you know I feel I feel the same. I feel like When I was telling you earlier because we didn't have internet and stuff when I was growing up that everything is coming full circle for me and nothing now? Everything is coming full circle for poem because even if you look back in the days so many people start the pool whether it was Vince. Carter Thomas huge way back in the day and then they went dormant like you must forgot they were there they will never be normal again. They they already working. Foam is definitely working by Pufus They said it'd be out in the Spring and stores in in on at Puma Dot Com. And then we supposed to do something and you know this spring store here in New York so you know I'm just like I said I'm just humble. You know like that took a chance on a kid like me. Just like.

"Yeah other work to do and stuff like that so I think would they. They're doing now with the. NBA is great because it helps a lot of players grow. Because like I said even at that point you know When I left school you know I could've went back so you know at that point? I'm dealing with other stuff you know and I'm like man I really love basketball. Go to NBA. And I'm like but now the NBA isn't now basketball is not fun to me in at this point. So you're right it didn't run but so you're you're you're finally get to the NBA and that's the point in your career where it was the least amount of fun at least amount of fun because it was like when I when I got an MBA became More of a business you know. and which would you should because because you know you're making money and stuff like that but it wasn't just like you know there's a lot of dynamics that go into the NBA goes into salaries. Louise is it goes into Coaching it goes into a lot of different various booths. Like you know if I pay one guy then. This guy needs to play. You know stuff like that. I gotta find a way how to do this. And it's like you know you're Tom Com and this and that and then when when you think your time is now you know. You don't know no better at that point you know I went there and you know one of child is only team Roster Glenn Hughes the point. I'd that probably was like his when his best careers and stuff like that and then we had Chris Whitney who has a good friend of mine and things like that and And do you not really playing. It's like the first in my life not really playing you know. And then of course when you're nineteen years old and you're not playing you have money and you just start. Well you know. I'm not playing anyway. I'll go hang out over here. I relaxed you can do. And then it becomes the norm for you and then when it becomes enormity it becomes kind of disinterested in and then you're not taking things is series you supposed to and then you know. Then there's some I worked so hard God did not come back and I'm like doing good in preseason and then I hurt my shoulder and then at that I is like you really not playing so now your mind is just like okay at this point. Whatever so you more I won't? I won't say depressed because at that point I didn't know so I don't know if it was or was it but it was like this and I'm like Man Mike Basketball is supposed to be fun at the same time and it wasn't fun for me you no and you know that was a rough rough time for me at that point but I still was no great face and still going on a light because at the time I am blessed like I'm an NBA and that was the goal to make it to the NBA. And things like that. And then I think when I got over when I went overseas I felt more comfortable with me by I plan basketball and stuff like that and then otherwise just like okay. I'm at peace with this and this is what I need to be. You know because he was other teams that came like even when I got. MVP and China were Yao. Ming is teams Seattle right before Seattle left the team like like Seattle like the coaches. They came only playing China. I like forty five points and he was like man it was like hey come back. You know I'm shooting three well. They like like. Hey you should come back and child for us but no you gotta play in It wasn't called the G. League then it was called the NBC both the Development League League and then it was whatever it was called by this point. You know if I'm playing CVA you know. I have to take a pay cut. And I'm like I'm rod high over here like these people love over here like I'm not taking the pick just at at this point you know I got my I got my son and stuff like that you know my son in high school so at this point you know the NBA creates a living for me so I have to sustain this live in two overseas and start getting paid. It was just like You know what I played in the NBA. That's cool and you know I just want to enjoy basketball uh-huh and that's what that's what happens now in your your one full season with the wizards some though you end up on a Ross. This is incredible because it was not a good team necessarily but the the names amazing players Ben Wallace before he was Ben Wallace is sitting on the bench with me. And we. You know it's funny about that. So many walls and this is what what I'm saying. This is how like short of a moment things to happen and me. I made a bad about we not playing so it was like we wanna see who could grow their here the longest and then that of course you know as a result for being. How's it going to live with his own been added that you know Like I said the team didn't perform well so when the team don't perform well the lease people and told them bows easy easy to get rid of and stuff like that. I mean I'm making probably like but seven hundred thousand NBA team. That's you know. So and then they start moving everybody move Weber San Whilst the Detroit and Detroit utilize his gifts and then it became. I think he actually had didn't nego. Landau Human Orlando two stops away from becoming that Ben while and lost so incredibly craziest thing. He was that Ben Wallace with the wizards it. He just didn't not know what they had. It was just like it was like no Chris Weber's better than him was better than him. So he's like you know at that point but he still was the same at worked hard and still you know block shots do can shoot those. They'll this but he was saying Ben Wallace but it was like yeah. You know it's Wild See web juwan. John Howard Tim Wonder Rod Strickland who you mentioned. Murray there was that whole Strickland Tracy Murray fight. We don't need to get into all of that. It's it's it's a little snapshot in time like that like you know and then going into my second year before. Release the You know Mitch Richmond. Yeah yeah no sounds so like things.

"Start. Your next project says guys you played against coming up in New York but maybe maybe one that anybody that no one's heard of is there. Somebody was like the guy and it just didn't didn't bust out crying. Growing up for me is kind of differing because I grew up around amazing ball players like you know I grew up around amazing. I like around amazing people you know like when people acting like who am I. Friends growing up is funny because I've been blessed to be around just amazing people whether street basketball players or whether they just regular basketball. That's what pleased that the world know and whether my friends are rappers like maze camera like when I was young camera was a great basketball player. You Know Mace was a good basketball player and best friend's always hung out and then they went to the music they got a guy named Alamo recipe they called black widow. He plays on an one tour. He was amazing. He can do everything I can do. And he was like six seven so if you put him now you know like you said like and they was limited like. Oh you shouldn't be dribbling the ball. You should be posting up if you put them now six seven and he can do everything. I can do basketball dribble and he would be amazing. Just potential you know but for me you growing up the best player I ever played against probably is stuff all very you know. We both grew up in same area. We both as in New York City planning a Catholic school. He was new of Public School. You know we you know we are friends. We play with Gauchos together and and At that time he was the number one player in the country. Not even point guard. He's number one player in the country. And it's like you said this New York was like at the top of the food. Chains like Philippi Lopez the before things like that. And then you gotta think then like my McDonald's American class is probably arguably really wanted to resume thousands of American class ever so I play them in classes me stuff. All Marbury Chauncey billups. Paul Pierce Kevin. Garnett Vince Carter Rob Rob tractor trailer. Rest in peace. We Do Raheen Antoine Jamison. You know those guys before scenes in College Nineteen of our our twenty two was drafted. NBA same. Yeah so amazing list. Yes so I realized I hadn't seen that listener. Wow that's that's an incredible and plays is like Louis Bullock. That didn't make you got that I mean didn't make it to like the NBA overseas had a great career. You got skinny pen according to Alexander like these. These guys are great. Cause for laurent profit. I is is so many people that made the NBA later for that class. wrandell Jackson. So it's like I grew up in everywhere it was like those guys was amazing like to play against and you know and then also grew up in Arizona which is one year older than us. You know well I was. I Argued Best Small in the history compared to buy tiny eligible. Isaiah Thomas you know. I grew up in A rich era her down and you had at some points along the way. I don't know how old you were but you ended up playing summer ball with Kobe. At one point yeah was. It wasn't some ball. ABCD Camp Okay so ABC camp Just like fractured my resume number. So I came late and and he was like man is Is a guy and a team I was. I was going into my senior the junior and his father he just came. You just came back as far as like Hank You my son how to dribble this is just when it came back from Italy. Yeah he's there for like a year he'd been in stays. He's a year. 'cause this Tim. Thomas was the number one player in the country so we haven't really even heard a Kobe at this point like like that I was like ten Thomas so Kobe was just coming into his own. And it's funny. Because when I met him I'm like he played team. You got thing. I'm riding high at this point the next to the McDonalds American games. It's the first time two point guards to people from the same. Had the same position plan and McDonald's all American game in the history. The McDonald's so as me Steph we both as point guards from the same series plan. McDonald's so I'm riding high then I go to. ABCD camp and this this guy. He's like six six he's just shooting the ball all the time all the time. Yeah and so you know when you're young. You just have no filter. We like the hell is this guy I think he is shooting. He Walk and talk like Jordan. Anything he's Jordan. So Bori Maggie we. Hey Man do he's Jordan so Unlike don't he no I am like I'm I'm the Mary now stuff like that. And then his father who you know one day was like ones hake. Thank you sean. Some jubilant stuff and then add that sparked like a great friendship you know I just December just training his daughter stuff like we've been friends for a long period of time and you know I'm glad I was one of those steps and his life because at that point. There's no way I think you become become you know. He's become much to his. Credit is is is amazing to me about the greatest players and stuff like that I I was asked. You and I always say Kobe. 'cause like I don't think no other to my knowledge there's no other star that went to as much scrutiny. He's went to to get to where he was at because even even before the NBA stuff like this but when he was young with us. Everybody's by hated in joked on him. Lie About Oh you think you Jordan you walk join chew gum like joy you know Jordan who you think you. Are you got a bunch of kids saying saying that Another kid that's sixteen seventeen. Most kids fold and be like okay you know and it just motivated him more and to his credit he always thought that he would be better than Jordan. Like this is not a you know. Some people will say and they don't really you know like he not really mean it and if you spoke to them they still feel that way right now you know so I just give them all the credit in the world you know. He's a basketball Paris in an he's definitely probably you know one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA. That I you know especially for me. Come mm across become a free credit me with him. Learn how to jewel and stuff like that. That's truly amazing. Because you gotta think from eleven twelve grade. We worked out and stuff like that. But you gotta think trainings. He has since then so for him to give me any type of that. Credit is just amazing so humble and and obviously you know still values that if he's having you train is exactly like you know and it's funny because like was that All Star weekend in on. I'm just you know we always speak here and there so that was weekend and I'm doing I was doing a Puma and then the phone rang and I'm like hello. Hey what's up like What's up Mike? WHO's trying to hear the voice? I like. Hey what's up. Hey I need due to come out and do some workouts okay. I'm like who's this is like it's called. Can you make sure you beat this. What do you say to that or like? I'm like okay. Cool because you don't say no. Yeah and his daughter is is amazing. Yeah real deal yeah should be in no doubt BMW. The craziest thing was you have the same mindset him like I've never seen a challenge in terms of the way she works or the fact is you know anyway. She works as a basketball player. Lying he he's he's like. Hey come on my case get there. And he's like yeah she know how to score some of them. She's not a score he's like she's Nealon. Hi Dribble and I'm like okay. So we can do some stuff. He's like no we're going to go from twelve to. I just need her doing all driven. Not No shooting no labs not just all in like a couple of other girls that because you know he coaches team and I'm like okay so we do now mind you. I'm doing jubilant with professionals at about thirty five minutes they're done lying done to do the minute the whole house. Oh she's going hard so then I'm like okay. Well you know I'll see you tomorrow. We've asked him why he's like. No no no. We're GONNA come sixty eight and do moved more driven same to our same day so he did four hours of dribble in non and I mean a lot been not like hey coach to get Water if you know how hard it is to practice driven and I got back the evening. I'm like okay. We're GONNA you know. Start the same routines teams. Okay okay. Then she's like. Hey I got I got better I got better right. There was only two and like when I say like AC- loves he loves ball. I can't even write for two hours straight with exactly exactly so for you to be locked in and be a young a young kid. That's no that's That's one of those things like that is. There's some Kobe gene there. Yeah of that because he was so I covered him for seven years. And that was the one thing that I came away with all the other things that the people think about Kobe him. But I think you'll you'll agree with this borderline obsessive or maybe not maybe just obsessive never seen or met anybody in any walk of life any career path. And he kneeled who is devoted to what they do as he was to basketball he lived and breathed it and that was why we don't have to go down the tangent of shacking and all that stuff was always to me what I saw the tension between them along with everything else was that Kobe obsessed about it and put everything into it. And if you didn't do it at the same symbol. He did which by the way was almost no one then he was always going to have trouble accepting what you were doing. Especially if if it was you know. Obviously he's fellow star in their tussling for all this other other stuff. It's like I worked for this. What are you doing? And that's why that's why the fans will always appreciate him later like now. Yeah because they see players now and they see players like someplace takeoff someplace so they will always because you know in the moment you don't get that they just like oh always just just so hard. He's doing this by now. You WanNa Kobe now. You want somebody that's just solely focused on making a team better and make himself better to give his self every day. You know as a fan now you appreciate that more. And that's what I think people didn't see and again that's why he's always asked me about. Kobe has to be like man like we can't even have a discussion about him because he loves basketball that much that HE WANNA put his best foot for every night. So so you'd be hard on somebody that I like that it's like it's like you know like somebody like you say somebody come to work every day and just giving all to a job and you're like how can we like. We like if you say you write in for four hours a day late I get this right and then somebody tell you something. What like? Yeah it makes no sense. It's it's one of those unfortunate things feel like. Kobe is not going to be properly appreciated. And Post career the way that he was during his career in part because because of advanced stats and everything else don't kind of like shine on him as an as as favourably as his game showed itself at the time and to an extent Dan you know Kobe victim of his own excesses to on the court where the narrative got creative created and he kept feeding into it. I think especially later in his career When you've you've been there was nobody heels to pass to anymore? He just you know he was jacking it but now he's almost become underrated as a result because he's viewed through a certain Lens now and Yeah I. It's it's it's a funny thing right so I mentioned. Will you drafted ninety seven. It was twenty games with the wizards. The play by play in. This is Julie. We didn't have no other stuff we didn't have. You know it was. It was difficult at some point and it was You go to a point where you get disinterested in something that you love so much. And I don't think I think people know about it now but not then because like now you have so many Teams you have so many like honestly like head doctors actors like this. You speak to on a daily basis and say no even if I'm not wrong it's just like you just event to say how you feel and stuff like that and when I was coming up we didn't have that and when I even plays. NBA like myself like a player development coach and stuff like that and when I went to NBA player development coach. We have like now. You have a whole two assistant coaches in the head coach one trainer. Yeah and this isn't coast. You know that that's the first you kinda bonded to. He was is in specialized for player development. You know what I'm saying. It was more like you say he's closer..

"POM squad. I think it was called Mark Jackson. We're on strickland. Gerald Wilkins Lukens the poster right. Yeah that's when they were like real good. Mark Jackson never forget Dodo behind the bag over the head pass to pass has union. And then I'm going to the park the next day and just practicing for hours and hours and hours raw string on how to finish in the lane and stuff like that right and you know like you see it in Chiari you know career you know. That's the godfather so you can see resembles in a game so now he's the practice moves like that all the time. So in that era news like the best and then when I really like study basketball and I used to watch news. Puma Fam- Clyde Frazier Asia in early in Monroe. I love them because they always had the knicks always great backwards. When I was growing up in things like that and they played they play like street but professional basketball players? They fancy moves and things like that with God and her. And then you've got Mom Jackson the roster and the same thing. Yeah no that's perfect. Blend right in me of having the flash kind of like the St Paul but effective at the NBA. There was a time. When like you know like I I think this had you know? Certainly impact on Rod Strickland another's along the way but in prior eras. Sometimes there was you know. The flash was kind of frowned frowned upon in this. I think it's more embraced now if the NBA is now that'd be so many players that it came out of New York that would have made it an NBA right now because the NBA now is is a big New York to me. That's I look at it because if you look at any. NBA offense everybody. Now play five out so New York is the one st no matter. What if you look at the history of the one St that you could play with armed armed guards in the park and everybody did everything like you know? When I was coming up I played in the park? I'll I'll rebound passes play defense and you know and when I was coming on. NBA was like. Hey you should andrew like this or you know running team pass cut through because you shag patch Bulan the big man but now now everybody is a guard. Mostly if you can't you can't shoot on. Do you have a problem in NBA because like Giannis. It's like he's he's typically point guard so New York is one state that you will go to because we didn't really have big men like in in the parks and stuff like that so everybody played every position. You'll have guards posted in up stuff like that But like you said. La Seattle all these North Carolina's bail seven footers bigness. They typically played the right basketball their whole life like they went in the gym and they had a point guard shooting even guard data small forward. They had a big New York is the only place I'd like Jersey. Maybe Chicago Philly but like those types of areas is the only any place where the big might be six six. So he's dribbling and doing the now you look at the NBA Draymond Green. Is You know at six seven six. It was like so I think it would have been totally different. Yeah no it's it's good though. I mean the among the many ways in which the game has evolved over the last twenty thirty years as one yes. Those skills are valued at every position. Everybody can do everything. No one's kind of put a box and yet the individual expression within the game aim the creativity you know what Kyrie does you know you want it channel in the right direction. Not Not just with him but a Lotta guys and but it's accepted embraced and I think encouraging a way that maybe it wasn't back in the day you can afford to have you know that icon a classic creativity and whatever and still be not not not basically not have your ass yanked out of the Game Ver- coach. That's a good point because now I see that every day is like even like when you got analytics and stuff like that nowadays is. They're you're like Oh that's a good shot you know not saying who shuna shop at this and that's a shot so like am I coming from New York which you probably heard allies like. Oh the guys can't shoot. They can't do. You know stuff like that. They could get to the basket. They could finish but Even tried to shoot it was like like you said the confidence of you. Don't make this. Okay you gotta sit. You shouldn't be shooting this whereas in this era is about taking shot. And there's like even if you miss ignore just just keep working on it you know if you open shoot out again and my man you know you don't shoot. Don't shoot that. Yeah so it's like you say. Put you in a box to where now you're straight as a player or something's going now or something you're interested in things like that. It's so funny because I remember when I was coming The Lakers and they of course that held us big showdowns with the kings over the three year span there and before they swapped out Jason Williams for Bibi so Jason Williams white chocolate. He's coming down. He was the first guy I remember. You're in Mike time covering the league. Who would shoot those pull up? Threes and transition. And you're laughing because again back in the day that was like Oh God you can't you can't and imagine him now. Imagine him now he phenomenon I mean he was he was great but there was a guy who that that individual excessiveness that creativity the way he like fans enjoyed it. But I'm not. I'm not sure coaches are myths. Nestle even teammates. Maybe of that era would've necessarily drove them crazy so now but now you put him in this putting right now. What's going on now? It'd be tried number one guard now type of offense. Yeah he was he was a blast to one. Hey guys so I just got hooked up with something really cool that I wanNA share with you.

"Mba for bleacher report. Very pleased to have with me in studio one of the greatest. I don't know maybe the greatest uh-huh ball handler in the history of basketball. The only ball handling coach in the NBA lease that. I'm aware of also one of the guy the guy with with the greatest names possibly you can find on basketball reference DOT COM. God Shammgod Pam. How you doing? Thanks for having me here. Thanks thanks for coming in this is this is great so obviously the mavericks are in town. got a couple of days to kill between the Celtics and the Knicks. Your New York guy to be home what do you do. You came in just in time for like the first little flickers of snow. So there's a nice welcome back yeah. There's something you know. It's funny because I got off off since I moved to Dallas now is really cold here. You know once when I lived here. It wasn't that cold but just being here. It's good to be back in New York. Always you know I I love New York and things like that and we just here you know trying to get the job done. Play the Knicks Thursday. You still have the gear for the cold weather I mean you travel with the NBA. So you have to be prepared for every city so you still got the gloves you've got the mavs beanie cap on your lease. Got Your ears or protective. Yeah I mean I ah I got the gear. Promo make sure I'm tight and make sure I'm comfortable so you know you know they make sure I'm gonNA gear. That's good. It's good to get the plug in early there too. I pull my family I think you and I may have crossed paths. Things just said hello once or twice in a gym somewhere but we've never really met and so so I've never gotten a chance to to ask you about a lot of back story that I want to get into. We'll talk about the maps to your your role but I think think especially for our listeners. Who often skew much younger? I remember when you were drafted. You're drafting this. The same year that I first started covering the NBA was early in the Lakers. In ninety-seven in your first season was your season I see on the league but I think a less guys like the rue who heads who know about the shammgod about the move they don't know about you so First of all your name because I think people still probably trip over this way. Well hold on. So what do does anybody. Nobody actually Referred to everybody her referred to you is just as Shammar Shammgod. Your name actually has interesting backstory which I don't think it ever gets covered or very rarely. So gimme the story of of your name. father's AFA percents You know his name you know when I was in high school. I used I Use My mom's name a lot because I was young. He used to get teased. Live there being kogaz stuff like that so then it was like a fusion in the beginning because I used to right Shamgar wells on my NOTEPADS and stuff like that but then when I got to Providence College in I had to use my given eh birth name. You know was that happened in people. Like oh wait a minute. He changed his name to God. And all this other stuff and things like that and you you know other than that is a blessing in saying and my naming to the one who's worthy of greatness and I I think that fits me. I think my family pick the perfect name for me. And I'll take pride in that name. Not Take Pride in being. You know upstanding person and things like that so and then once I became good in basketball. It wasn't really a big deal and as I grew. And as you know what you want to say the legacy of dribble and and stuff like that then everybody's like Oh. This is cool his name in the world. So you know for me is just just go by sham and stuff like that just more comfortable for people I mean. I think it's probably just because even though there's a translation involved they're letting people you know like what's up. God is is kind of A. I think it's an awkward for people to say right. Yeah it's funny because like in in the beginning I did but now I don't think so now because now some people just call me God some news as and stuff like that you know but I think it's because basketball made it so comfortable the middle. Yeah so you know the way I played basketball. Everybody put the tune together so Dan it just comes together but you know I always just went by Shammgod right because you know growing up my father. He went by Shamgar even though his name is Gosh you know for me. It wasn't a big thing. Views guard or Sham just always used to people calling me sham introduce myself always introduce myself a sham. And for me you know growing up in doing things I'm doing now and I really like it and take pride in it because not one of those things like Jordan or Kobe or something like that you know is is only one Shamgar as when people say shambles like all the one. I WanNa play basketball and stuff like that doing with nothing else. Yeah no when you start typing either part of your name. I only one year. The only other person who even came up started taking Sham Shimon Williams. Yeah no it's it's it's great. I think that is one of those things like we as as a kid. Something that's distinctive or to unusual even in this city like that's just a i. I could see why you might WanNa back away from the beginning in adulthood. Did this become something that really distinguishes you along. Obviously with your your your moves but yeah because young you really so you really don't know yourself so you learn yourself too so it was like like you said in the beginning is like to distinguish yourself and learning some at the same time. It's kind of like like everything is so real in the moment but as you get older and you learn yourself and you find yourself in the man. I've become in becoming every day in growth ROAF. I feel like it's failing you know when you're young you really you know you might think it's too much or something like that but as I get older you know I don't think one way or the other about it now is just go about who I am and be a good person every day and just let it go. I feel like we also are in a time. I don't WanNA give Society too much credit for this but we are. I feel feel like we are in a time where people are not going to trip up too much over Something unique and distinctive anymore in the way that they would have when you and I were kids. There's a a lot more just general acceptance in kind of like okay. Yeah I haven't heard that name before. But that's you know just because I went back. There's a service nexus. It's a new service. Went back into the archives wanted. I wanted to see what was written about you. When you're drafted by the Washington Wizards when you went to Providence? And you went from being Shimon wills to To Gotcha or ship now go thanks to God and of course every possible word play Pun divine intervention. Every it though at the time you must have just cringed yes because I mean I think it's party partly because you know you have to think when I grew up you know Because I was good in basketball and things like that so it gave me rich and arnold to do other things so growing up. I always in Catholic school you know from High School from being Lasalle and then even go on the Providence. And things like that. So it's like like you said you know it's like everything's like Oh divine. Everything's this and everything is like spiritual stuff like that. But once I got knowledge itself from growing up just became easier Sierra and you know and for the people who became easier and then once you know wants to become a household name in something things become easier to in In once people see you. You're not here trying to be something you're not then. I think they look at me. And then it's just fun though You came up in New New York basketball at a time when New York basketball really meant something Kenny. Anderson Can Smith Mark Jackson. And then there's the generation of you know obviously Marbury telfort affair all these guys who've come through our Odem Ron R. Tests. It feels like that's kind of slowed to a trickle. What's happened to New York basketball? I don't think it's slow to true. Roger Stink The difference between the generation then in generation now is when I played you know you took pride in being from New York and you took pride and playing in New York schools. I think all the good players now you still have the same amount of good players but they all go to prep school so they all in Connecticut All Jersey. They all over the place but they they still your kids and you know it's like you know you have Hamadu Diallo. You have mobile. NBA's of these people. Are you know. Mums a lottery. Pick stuff like that but it is because he went to. He didn't go to school. That's in New York. Like when I was growing up everybody wants to go to a school in New York so New York was like running everything. There was basketball whether it was fashion. Whether Eighty you name other states wanted to be like New York and I think the more that we spread out in the more stays we've been in and things like that. We gave our coach to other states and now other states is blossoming in that in that. Same Regard Yeah. No I I feel like in the top with the NBA. Like you're seeing like there's a lot of guys obviously for me. This is why you know or at least southern California. It's why Paul George to go back because like they're there from La and you. There's a there's a lot of that I've done a head count but it does seem like the hotbed for basketball prospects at least the top top level in the NBA. Seems like it's it's it's much more. I don't WanNa say spread out there are there are some other hotbeds l. a. and the reason why is because New York is so competitive. Almost to to a fault. You know it's like like you said if you go to La if you go a of a train kids in Seattle sometimes and he goes to Seattle you know they do mostly everything together. You know in New York is everybody's fighting for the number one spot like the guy that plays street basketball that thinks he's better than the guy that's in school playing basketball or the guy in school basketball. I don't think the guy that play street basketball is a real basketball player in the street. Three basketball player. Thank God is in school is off is so so so the dynamic is different whereas in other states you know A guy makes it today. NBA then he reached back. And whoever's good in high school he helps train that player and stuff like that and that's how I became to train players like in Seattle and things like that. Where you have Jason Terry Jamal Crawford? They do stuff for like it was helping Isaiah. Thomas and all other guards came from Seattle. Oh and I think you know in the early years when I play. That's how I was and then I think when it got to like a little bit before my Erin Arab beyond aww just so competitive could straw became like so popular at the time so it was like you know everybody thinking their demand and stuff like that and I think me during the stuff I'm doing now. I'm trying to make sure it goes back to whereas Mark Jackson Kennedy Smith helping me so I WANNA make sure I'll help guys thus in high school now in college now Washington Jelly fame. You know kids like that help whether it was you know working with trae young Dennis Smith junior things like that. I just tried to reach back and help because at one point New York always did and like you said the other states are doing that now so now you see like co I wanNA play elite because they play together and he was young. You See James Harden player Russ because they play when they was young more southern California. Yeah and things like that so I think wants to get back to that. I mean we have it because New York's always going to be the Mecca basketball. Yeah except maybe at the NBA level. I'm Glenn the other trying to get to get him. I assume you grew up expand. Yes yeah I grew up a knicks fan nets fan Phoenix inexpensive was one of my favorite teams. Because I used to love Kevin Johnson like I loved Kevin Johnson as a point guard. But you have no choice but to be a New York fan on this fan especially when you live in the Tri State. So you know it's been tough you know. It's been tough so figured out. Yeah no always always always interesting not not always great. But they're always interesting. was there one team or one player of that era. You come up in the eighties as early ninety S B. Before you kind of you know move on with your own career. What was it like the one most influential version of the Knicks or one player? Who like really just inspired you when they had I think it was called the honestly the POM squad. I think it was called Mark Jackson. We're on strickland. Gerald Wilkins Lukens the poster right. Yeah that's when they were like real good..

"I said No. I'm going to Dallas. At and T. Randall they need me in Dallas and they're asking me to move. You and I have no desire to run for office because it's so screwed up in Washington no I mean that seriously. CEO Sit here and tell me you know week after week on this podcast that they feel like they can affect more change in the business world for people then they can in Washington because it's so hard to get anything none. I believe that I mean I. I've I've experienced that if you can really mobilize people locally and focus then I would prefer to do that now. Public policy matters so I'm a big person around public policy so we need great policy makers and we have some great policymakers in Washington. DC Ah we have some problems we need to leave but we have some great policy makers they are. I don't want to affect policy and rather execute on the policy. I don't want want to make the policy and go through the grind in Washington. DC that's just not who I am. I am just more of a local grassroots. Let's get with a group of people get it John. Let's get it done. Let's get it forwards you live by Dream Focus Yes pray act which of those assists the most important which has guided you the most literally totally literally break I was in my prayer closet praying the week before I got this call from Mark Cuban because we were going to move back to North Carolina and I was literally in my prayer closet when what's practice well place in my house go into I like that I need one of yeah. Go in and just like my place. I'm alone and I have some cork boards. Where if I know somebody's nobody's going through a crisis? If I hear about something I will write that person's name down and I'll put it up on the board so people and things that I want to pray for because you know I got going on so I don't want to forget right so I'll write it down put into Cork Board and then I just tried to spend some time in there every morning every now and then I'll have to do but at night but I try to go in there every morning just to get my mind right into here. What God has for me? I don't do this by myself. I am. I am guided by his spirit and literally the Lord spoke to me and told me not to move and as I was getting ready to tell my husband he says oh you've been gone all week. I just need you to know I'm really not trying to move back to North Carolina and I hadn't even told him what had happened. In the closet and I said okay that's confirmation and then a week glaister Mark Cuban Mark Cuban call meant to a meant to be in Dallas up next how Cindy marshalls faith helps her navigate. The most difficult situations stay tuned. It's Wednesday October second. TNT all the lead wrestling hits harder flies tire and bricks all boundaries rustling a new League Wednesdays starting October second date on TNT UEFA. The Champions League and Europa League are back in action this in stream every match on beyond is so if we could spend a little bit of time to the extent you're comfortable talking about your faith and what you've been through you've been through it. you're a cancer survivor. You lost a child Yes so ah let's begin with fighting cancer and beating ambient by the grace of God and beating so I I was told to get a colonoscopy literally a month before my fiftieth birthday and I didn't do it and then I was in this big. At and T. leadership session called the corporate athlete and inmates it as well as Jerry. It's a great book and it makes you focus on one aspect of your health. You know physical mental virtually emotional just one aspect of it that you want to work Khan and physical part actually came up lower than I thought it would and they said just pick one thing that you'll do and so my one thing was okay. I'm GonNa go and have that colonoscopy. I'M GONNA get get that referral slip off my nightstand and go and do that still took me about six months to get it down. I had my good old accountability Buddy Frank Gills who I just actually saw at the airport couple of days go and I am a big hug. I see you help save my life so you would call me every day. Even when I was going through the starbucks line you get that thing done you get that thing look at that and so I finally got it done technically technically in compliance. It was my last day a fifty while I last year fifty I had the colonoscopy and then the next day my fifty first birthday I was Kamini at work and I got pulled out and it was my doctor saying a surgeon is going to call you and he had already told my husband a little bit about he saw tumor and all that and it looked nasty and so I said okay I gotta get it out and when I saw the surgeon and he actually told me I could wait a few months and because he said he had you know done this a long time and so he didn't anthony cancerous and I said in his office for an hour and a half missile less than advocating for your health. I said No. It's gotta come out. This girl says Nasty Watson. The picture was very advanced. Yes and he says No. I think it's okay I mean he called. We had surgery. I would leave his office so we had surgery and then he called me the day before New Year's Eve and said I hope you're sitting down. He said I have some news. It's bad and it's significant you have stationary colon cancer. One left note away from stage four. It's in in your lymph nodes and blood vessels and then the rest is just like an outer body experience Sherman at that point. It's like I couldn't even hear him and then when I called my mom and California her response was is this is for his glory. She said this is for God's glory. Really you have a very public up your your high inner high profile job and you will till this story on how the Lord will heal you from cancer you know of course with the help of doctors and all that now I don't WanNa hear that exactly at that time but literally that was her response and it turned out to be the truth. It was very high profile very public yet. I was the chair of the North Carolina Chamber so the first woman to hold that position and we had our big economic forecasts forum coming up in a few days and I was supposed to give Erskine Bowles and award so it was like this big event but of course I don't show up to the event and they you know the the media as y'all do as we do to ask questions and finally the story broke that I was diagnosed cancer and there was a very public brutal six-month battle with chemotherapy and all that and thank God it's been what eight years I'm cancer a free but I think is one of the lessons there that if you don't have your health you don't have anything like you didn't go get that checkup. You're busy too busy. It's ridiculous. It's so it's just so irresponsible. and I was responsible. I should have done that literally on my fiftieth birthday. I don't blame me and my dad died from cancer when he was forty nine and he knew he should've been going in to get checked sooner but he was so busy with his career and with us and with the kids and with the family and it's what sort of he put himself last I think and sometimes we need to be selfish and put ourselves certainly our health right because what I realized going through that situation and in fact it was my son when we told the kids I forgot we told the kids and my son who was in his freshman year in college. He responded minded and he joked but I could tell he was he was upset and he says No. You're going to be fine mom. You're going to be fine and my daughter's. We're all devastated in one of my daughter said Oh you're going to die and you're probably already dying. Step mom the stepmom and you're just not telling us she's devastated and so my son told her he said no Shirley. Don't say that don't no say that he said look around the house and I have Christmas stuff everywhere. That's my sensors. That's my jail the day after Thanksgiving. The the whole house is transformed. That's my doubt grade and he said look around. He says dad says if anything ever happened to mom he's not doing any of this like no sheets. No reindeers no nothing. He said Salam's not leave it. She's got around Christmas and that's when it hit me. Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness well with these kids stew. I wasn't here I mean I wish I had thought a couple of years especially. My father died from colon cancer the year before I was diagnosed. Thank goodness so so you think that point but it didn't so that's why I talk about it a lot. I see people on the elevator. They tell me their age. I had to call just I. They're looking at me like I the head of my calendar thirteen years from now that's right. GotTa have so tell me about Winston. Who's it was win? I Love Winston. Winston was my chemo pump. I am literally riding a book. You're probably the first person I'm telling this to. I didn't go book call Winston and Clubhouse Very Winston was my chemo pump so I'd have to go in and have chemo and so they put this big pump on me and my husband will cause. I named it Winston because of the movie how Stella Ella Her groove back there you go and so. She got her group at right yeah that hot guy yes. He was Winston. He was Angela Bassett Winston and so I said okay this thing has to give me my roof back. It had all the chemo chemo cocktail in there so I literally had to give it a name and then I call the chemo infusion suite clubhouse Terry GonNA has literally. We were in there every day fighting for our lives. It was like a clubhouse for a team and we were on the cancer team for that year. Can Can I ask you. I you know I don't know maybe it's because of my dad or I don't know but I always get nervous about dying young or leaving my children and you you know what that would mean and and so then I feel this immense guilt when I'm not at everything for them when I'm not doing school pick up every day right and everyday right I know but you have this amazing way of thinking about things even post cancer your crystal balls and your rubber ball so help alleviate TV eight or mom guilt and tell us about those and so something could be wrong with me because I just never I only have mom Joe. Never no I never had before first of all. The nineties have to eat WANNA eat. Mommy has to say that my daughter says. Why are you going to work and I'm like do you like your dinner right shoes? You're wearing and how about those socks okay but so Chris Balls and rubber walls crystal balls are things they drop they shatter they never come back. You cannot put the glass back together. Rubber balls are the things that bounce back and I have a good example I was asked to go to Washington. DC and spend a whole week in Washington DC for AT&T Tintin to help lobby on some issues when you're and I said I can be there the whole week I can. I you know put the North Carolina stuff in somebody else's hands but Wednesday afternoon is the only time I'm not not available because my son has his first high school swim meet we have moved to North Carolina. It was his first high school swim. Meet not a second third practice yeah I high school and so I get the schedule and the most important legislators they wanted me to meet with of course and I said I I I'm not going to be here. I gotta go back home. His first high school swim me. She went home for the end. They looked at me and they're like what I said. I'm sorry and so my son looked up in those stands for is that he saw me he smiled and he wanted individual medley. I ah continue to say to this day. That's because he saw his mom and his stance Harry that was a crystal ball to me and then I went back the next morning six o'clock and guess who we met with them Thursday morning to all those yeah legislative will wait yet it will and your kid won't.

"dallas mavericks" Discussed on Boss Files with Poppy Harlow

"In this episode of boss files I'm uniquely qualified to do this. I have to do for the sisterhood. I have to help create a great place to Work Dallas Mavericks. CEO Cynthia Cynthia Marshall She's the first African American woman ever to lead in the eighteen. She was hand picked by team owner. Mark Cuban tasked with cleaning up a toxic work environment an independent investigation later found quote numerous acts of sexual harassment that spanned over two decades in the Mavericks. I walked into a culture. I walked into a place where the women were not valued and treated the way I would like to see them. Treat it so we had a problem with treat it women frankly I think we had a problem with how we respected and treated people of color and it wasn't a very diverse an inclusive environment when I got there and so we needed to to do some things she's fulfilled her one hundred day plan to turn around the team leadership taking the organization and from no women in leadership to fifty percent. She tells me she is committed to making her employees the top priority I want them to feel like this. The Dallas Mavericks is the best place to work on the planet and to in order to do that. I talked to him. I mean my first hundred days. I met one on one with every single. Oh employees plus marshalls remarkable personal journey how her faith is her northstar and how she has endured unimaginable loss. I've I learned literally how to give my problem frank to the Lord. I mean that's where my strength comes from. It comes from above I'd be a mess will just be a total mess trying to handle all all this by myself. I I couldn't deal with it. She beat cancer and defied all the odds. Here's my conversation with Cynthia Marshall. I am so thrilled all to be sitting here with you. Cynthia sint Marshall because you like to go by heavensent heaven love that thank you so much for being here. Let's start art at the Mavs and what you're doing now and this transformation and then let's back up but into your extraordinary life okay so just to begin this is the last place that you thought that you would be retiring from anti our parent company and working with Mark Cuban s an NBA team the Dallas maps crazy. Why did you say yes? I said Yes for the sisterhood I I said yes because after I met with him and then some of the women grabbed me on the way out the door because I hadn't decided yet and they told me their stories and they told me about the climate and I got in the car and I talked talk to my husband and I went home and I prayed about it and I said actually I'm uniquely qualified to do this. I have to do it for the sisterhood. I have to help create a great place to work you the first female African American CEO of an NBA team yes. Why did it take so damn long? I don't know but I'll tell you what I won't be the last time I will not be the last. I don't know why it took so long because the Dallas Observer has said of you. You're the quote most important acquisition since they drafted grafted Dirk Nowitzki. That's like a lot of prayer they said. I don't know I don't know I don't know we have some great great ball players. I mean I own the fact that we have turned around the culture and I didn't do it by myself. I brought some folks in with me. We promote it some people we created a great diverse leadership team but yeah I own it. Let's tell people who aren't who may not be familiar with the the crisis that was the Dallas Mavericks not that long ago and the culture crisis in what you know a number of people there gone through this review from to our to our listeners from the sports illustrated investigation which uncovered all of this quota corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior alleged public fondling by the team president outright domestic assault by high profile member of the mavs Dot Com staff unsupportive or even intimidating intimidating responses from superiors who heard complaints of inappropriate behavior from their employees even an employee who openly watched pornography at his desk one former former employees called it quote a real life animal house. Is that what you walk into I walked into a culture. I walked into a place where where the women were not valued and treated the way I would like to see them treated so we had a problem with treated women. Frankly I think we had a problem with how we respected entry people of color and it wasn't a very diverse and inclusive environment when I got there and so we needed to to do some things so yeah I walked into a place that is not the place the people are walking into right now. Can you talk a little bit more about how you saw people of Color in the the in the office being treated because I heard you say that in another interview and I think a lot of the press was about women but but you as an African American saw a the real issue here with how minorities are being treated right well and part of it was the absence the absence of people of color at the leadership table the absence of what I perceived to be people of Color in middle management so there was just a culture that catered to white men and that leadership team that was all white man which of course now is fifty percent women and forty seven percent people of color so we've made some changes. There are a lot of changes a lot of changes so I noticed that when I walked walked in the door what was missing because I'm used to working in a very diverse and inclusive environment and so this was very different from what I was choose to right I mean you had that at at. At and T. again your head of diversity at the company for for a long time and you had a different experience you had bosses who told you I want to go out of your way to elevate minorities exactly and a boss who gave a big speech at one point in time rental Stevenson about moving from tolerance to understanding our big boss. Yes big boss so we had a big focus on all people and I just didn't see it. The folks represented. I didn't see the representation that needed to be there and that's just on the surface and then of course inclusion is another whole part of that and so I just didn't see it. You know we just said okay. Let's lay out a plan. we laid out a one hundred day plan executed on it so I mean you you put so much on the line by saying yes. You didn't need the money you had this sort of picture picture-perfect career. You're in retirement. You could have just written off into the sunset enjoyed. The time with your husband is your kids. You didn't Mark Cuban calls you rumor has it. You are wearing a golden state warriors sweatshirt and Steph Curry sock when Mr mavs Kalsi drew that is correct that is correct.
