Rankings of the western conference talked about how these next tallies team stop stack up for next season because want to check that out. Please go ahead and do so. However now. we're gonna talk about the top ten indiana pacers of all time in this franchise but it has been around for a very very long time. So you know this. This team has a lot of players that are on this list. Lot of guys. Who helped lead this franchise to aba championships. So you might not know a lot of guys on this team. But i will explain them to you until you how. They made it as high as they did on this list. So without further do let's get started with number ten someone you might know pretty well. David west david west spent four seasons with the indiana pacers. And was a thorn in my side as that guy was so instrumental to the indiana pacers team of the early twenty tens. I mean just playing alongside roy hibbert. Paul george of course was george hill up lance stevenson. That team was one of the biggest threats to the miami heat dynasty of those early twenty tens and david. Wests was one of the most consistent players for that team. Whether it was his intensity on the boards his relentless his underrated passing and that mid range shot that he was so butter with he averaged fourteen points a game. Seven rebounds two point eight assists point eight steals and point eight blocks in his four seasons on just under forty nine percent shooting from the field. He didn't really extend his range of the point line. But anywhere in that mid range. You could bet your money that david west would be open and making his shots. I mean he was just such an important piece to that team and just how successful they worry it needs to be. It needs to be stated. Because i feel like his time. There was underrated in a lot of ways. Because roy hibbert got a lot of Notice because he. I think defensive player of the year one year and he was. You know one of those good stories of a guy that can came out of paul. George obviously being the superstar land stevenson being kind of crazy and and being a wild x. Factor for that team but david west was always just a very solid performer and was always showing up in big games and he was just one of their most important players needs to be mentioned. So that's why david west comes in at number ten at number nine. We have the flying dutchman error. I guess the the the the dutchman dunking dutchman. I think that's what they call him. Rick smits played his entire twelve season career with the indiana. Pacers averaged fifteen point game six point one rebounds and one point three blocks on about fifty one percent shooting. Now i understand. Rick smits being seven three. You would expect him to average a lot more rebounds however he was one of the more skilled big men in the league back then and his ability to space. The floor was unknown to big men at that time and he wasn't uncoordinated. He wasn't one of those guys that as got taller. His coordination dropped. He actually had all of that. Mike his ability to pass fake look for nice open. Shots his his. You know his. Iq was you know very very high. And any also was very physical. That's why he was able to stand up to guys like shaquille o'neal and patrick ewing in those In those playoff series that they had in the nineties You know. Rick smith was a very very good for indiana. Made it to an all star team made to the all rookie first team as well as he kinda started. Right away after there was an injury to the franchise center at the time forgot his name. But rick smits is a fan freight favourite for the indiana pacers and he comes in number nine for good reason so and number eight. We have one of the first. Aba players from the on this list. And that's freddie lewis. Freddie lewis played eight seasons for the indiana pacers franchise averaged sixteen points four rebounds forces and one point one steals per game on just under forty percent shooting. He won three. Aba championships with the indiana pacers. was in ab playoffs mvp. One of those years and made it to three. Aba all star appearances. Freddie lewis could do it all as you can see from stat line and to be able to shoot the ball and sixteen points a game in eight seasons and did a little bit of everything rebounded. The ball was it was a solid playmaker compla- hard nosed defense. There was really not much lewis. Couldn't do and the number one thing about him. Was that whenever it came to play off. Time 'cause like i would look at those playoff stats compared to like his regular season stats. And he always took it up a level he was a big big part of every single. One of those championships. And that's a big reason. Why freddie lewis is one of the better known players in indiana pacers history. I mean obviously you know people of our generation you know. I'm twenty seven. I wasn't even thought of when this guy was being was was playing basketball. Wasn't even in the minds of my parents. So that's how long it's been since. Freddie lewis played basketball. And that's you know that's why i don't know much about his game but just from what you could see when you look at his stats. You look at the way. He raised his game in the playoffs. You knew this guy was a big time player. He was a clutch player and a guy that stepped up time and time. Again for the indiana pacers franchise when they needed it most. And that's why. Freddie lewis comes in at number eight another member of the nba championship teams. Got roger brown. Roger brown played eight seasons with the indiana pacers as well Averaged eighteen points a game. Six and a half rebounds and four assists per game about forty seven percent shooting. Roger brown at small ford was what was a very very versatile player. Me as you can see in one of the best that lines on this entire roster in on this entire list i got a standing to be able to average eighteen points. A game over eight seasons on solid efficiency while rebounding the ball pretty well and and having been a pretty solid playmaker roger. Brown can pretty much do it..

"I maybe Morris and I'm Nathan Hager were bringing you highlights of Bloomberg's coverage of the announcement that Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Trump. Bloomberg's David West, and spoke with Leon Panetta, former secretary of defense under President Obama for his reaction to the election. There's a huge sigh of relief. I think by the nation that You know, we've come through a difficult period, but most importantly that the American people have spoken. And that's what our democracy is all about. I think you know our institutions of our democracy have been tested these last four years, but I always had confidence in the great pillar. Of our democracy, which is the American people and the right to vote. I just I'm very proud of the American people. And I think I think that regardless of the results as toe who you voted for against, I think America came out of this election much stronger and better for the future. You have said consistently throughout that you believe in the process you believe in the democratic system, and they will prevail and I think it is not too early to reflect on the fact that there was a lot of reporting about things that could go wrong things that could go wrong with the voting with the counting of the votes, frankly, civil unrest There was a lot of concern about it. Now we're not Through it yet, but thus far, I would have to say we have not seen that and one thing that struck me Besides what you said, which is how many people turned out to vote turned out early. Waited in long lines are those men and women who have been studiously carefully counting those ballots. People who are not in it for the glory people whose names will never know a lot of volunteers, which really says something about our process. Yeah, it really does restore trust. In In our democracy. You know, our forefathers placed the ultimate check and balance in the American people. It's we, the people who really control the future of our country and You know what's happened here is we had a record turnout of people. This was Probably the most important election in many of our lifetimes on DH. And what you saw was the process working whether it was Republican States or Democratic states, Democratic governors or Republican governors. The rose Those states and their election process was working. We had a lot of neighbors that we're counting votes in all of these different localities of some of them are continuing to count votes, but it is the purest of what America is all about. And you know, we always worry about the message we send to the world. I think this election sent a very clear message to the world that America is still the strongest country on the face of the earth. Well, said Mr Kerry, But now what comes next? That's the question. I mean, it's clear that we have a 50 50 roughly divided country. I mean, the popular vote was decidedly for Joe Biden. But it's been a very close election closer than a lot of people thought. What needs to be done for us to move forward is a country on what particularly can vice president now President elect Biden do with his administration moving forward T figure a way to come together toward the center rather than have this election..

We want certainty and our trading relationships Administration is trying to create a new divided world balances with David West. Bloomberg radio. Coming up this hour. The House and a trust subcommittee released its report on Big Tech this week, proposing some pretty radical changes. But will they see the light of day? Plus, we take a closer look at the state of Michigan as part of our swing state, Siri's leading up to the election, We check in with Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee and ask how the state will deal with all those mail in ballots plus President Trump's doctor says he can't tell us details of his patients condition because of the hip, A privacy law, Congresswoman Donna Shalala wrote the law. When she ran health and human services. She's here to tell us what the law really provides. But first for 10 years now tech giants Google and Oracle have been fighting it out in court over oracles claim that Google infringed It's copyright. It all has to do with Google's using AP Eyes or Application programming interface is now owned by Oracle. When Google developed its android smartphone after being up and down in the courts, the Supreme Court heard aural arguments in the case. This week. I talked to copyright law expert Tyler Ochoa. Of the University of Santa Clara Law School for his thoughts on what is at stake. There are two issues in this case, and one is whether the lines of code that Google copied Are or are not subject to copyright protection under a principle of copper at law that says copyright does not protect any procedure process system or method of operation. And the other question concerns. Fair Use Copyright law says that the that the fair use of a copyrighted work is not an infringement of copyright. Oh, and it gives us some guidance on how we might decide fair use, but it doesn't tell us whether fair, you should be decided by a judge or a jury. And here, the jury found that Google's top in Wass fair use And the Court of Appeals overturned that essentially saying that this is a question for the court and no reasonable jury could have found that this use was fair. So if Google wins on either of those questions, they will win the case. So let's take those two questions in turn, If we may 1st of all, whether it's copyrightable or not. I thought code in general was copyrightable. Is there some code that can be cooperate? And some that can't so code in general is copyrightable. It's treated like a literary work. Under the copyright Act. But then the Copyright Act has a car about it says in no case may copyright protection extend to any idea procedure process system or method of operation. And what Google did here was. It took the lines of code that specify what the program is supposed to Dio. And then it rewrote all of the lines of code that actually implement that that actually tell the computer what to do so it kept The lines of code that say, OK, here is the name of the function and hear the inputs and here in the output. But then it wrote all of its own code to actually implement that. And so the question is whether the lines of code that specify what the name of the function is and what the computer is supposed to do. In response to that name. Whether those lines of code are copyrightable under this principle that procedures processing systems. Methods of operation are not copyrightable, then turned to the fair use question and generally the fairy sign of us like a journalism if you're using it for a commercial purpose. On you Use any substantial on it, then it can't be fair Use is a practical matter. This is clearly commercial purpose, right? Well, but journalism is a commercial purpose. Journalists don't do what they do for free. They get paid for doing it on. So the court has said that just because it's commercial purpose. Doesn't mean that it's excluded from fair use. The most recent example, Wass Campbell versus a cuff rose in the 19 nineties, which was a parody of the popular song, Pretty Woman. Well, that was a commercial use right? They were selling their own CDs. But nonetheless, the court said that a parody could qualify as a fair use so commercial uses not expressly excluded. What's at stake here in first ball between these two parties. What kind of money we're talking about? We're literally talking about billions of dollars. Right. Google's Android platform is built on Android is built on these lines of code that were copied from the job. A M E application programming interface or a P I. Ah, and it's in just millions of smartphones that have been sold, uh throughout the United States throughout the world, so it's literally billions of dollars are at stake for these two companies. More generally, you have a whole lot of computer programmers who have been accustomed to using Application programming interface is interface specifications for about 25 years since a previous court case, Lotus versus Borland in the mid 19 nineties. Programmers have been assuming that these program interface specifications are not copyrightable. And if the court turns around now and says that they are copyrightable It's really going to be very disruptive to the computer programming industry. So give us a sense. How do you think it will come out? Or maybe I should just ask you if you were sitting on the Supreme Court? How would you rule? It Seems to me that justice wire Justice Sotomayor, Justice KEGAN. We're asking questions that suggested they were sympathetic to Google's views on the copyright ability issue. Whether or not they can find some other justices to go with them. One way for the court to resolve this. Would be to say when we don't have to decide whether it's copyrightable or not. This case did go to a jury, the jury said. It was fair. We could just say Ah, this is a jury question and leave it at that. Thanks to copyright law expert Tyler Ochoa of the University of Santa Clara Law School, You're listening to balance the.

"This is Bloomberg Wall Street Week With David West from Bloomberg Radio. United States flourished under a post World War two regime built on multinational institutions like the IMF, the World Bank. But President Trump has gone in a very different direction, something addressed by Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass in his new piece for foreign affairs present at the disruption, the president is trying to undo a lot of his inheritance and almost like health care. Repeal without replace so, the president said repeatedly on the pant campaign to kill and then as as president, we've been taken advantage of the states have been taken advantage of other people are benefiting. We're paying all the bills. What has this international system created afterward to actually done for the prosperity of America? He does think that when I met with him when he was still a candidate, he believed that That fervently that trade agreements have ripped us off and that essentially the costs of foreign policy are stationing of troops overseas in the light far outweighs any benefits. But he seems to be missing here. David is that for 75 years, there's not been a grand power conflict. It's an extent there wasn't conflict. The Cold War wanted state cold and too and ended on terms that were extraordinarily favorable to us. Meanwhile, standards of living in this country have gone up dramatically. One by by some measures 90 fold since the end of World War two. The average American lives on the order of 10 years longer than two years. She lived 75 years ago. Democracy is far more prevalent around the world, so I'm hard pressed to someone who's trained, is historian. To find any other period of history. A cz productive and constructive as the last 75 years. I'm not going to sit here and say we didn't make mistakes. Of course we did in Vietnam, Iraq and so forth. But by and large on balance. This has been a remarkable run, Richard. Even when Donald Trump came to office, things were changing. I mean, China was growing very quickly. It was growing to challenge us. As the world's down economic power. Was it inevitable that we had to do something other than what was left over after World War? Two? Absolutely, for several reasons. When you point, Tio China has emerged in many ways, and we needed to adjust our policy, And I think the president deserves some credit for calling out China where I where I think he gets the blame is I don't see anything coherent. They're consistent. For dealing, which probably need an even greater problem with American foreign policy is a lot of the institutions that you referred to are getting long in the tooth. We've got a whole new set of challenges in the world. Things like how to regulate cyberspace. What to do about climate change what to do about proliferation, and we simply don't have the mechanisms in place in the world. Israel shortfall when it comes to international arrangement, so addressing that Has got to be on our agenda. Unfortunately, the president is essentially uninterested or even opposed to international agreements of those sorts. You mentioned China obviously a terribly important relationship for the United States economically as well as geopolitically. Where we headed right now with China. If we keep going the direction we are. The president's clearly believes that if he keeps putting up pressure on China, he will do something good for United States and good for US workers. I could see two things happening if we keep going in the short run. I'm actually quite worried about a military incident say between American and Chinese aircraft, airships and something like the South, trying to see the Taiwan Straits near islands also claimed by Japan in the Pacific. And the real challenge. Then it will be to try to put a lid on it. So an incident doesn't doesn't grow into Ah conflict in the longer run day, but I'm actually concerned about a US Chinese Cold War. On across the board competition that at times is AH has us lined up against one another. It's dangerous. It's costly, but also it would probably rule out us Chinese cooperation, say in dealing with the North Korea or dealing with global health or dealing with climate change, and I think we're pretty far down that road. So one of the focal point of our relationship with China, certainly under President Trump has been trade. But the trade issues facing states are not limited to China. They go much more broadly, including the very institution of the W T O and our relations with Europe with a lot of our allies what is happening because of you our economy because of what has happened with trade under President Trump We lost a really chance I think to grow global trade and also to improve the way it's regulated. If we stayed in the transpacific partnership would've teamed us off with countries altogether, We would have represented over 40% of the world's GDP. We then could've put tremendous pressure on China to raise its game to meet our Standards. While we could reform the World Trade Organization, it's clearly flawed. But then the question is. How do you make it? How do you make it better? Instead? What we're essentially doing is undermining it by not approving any judges for the one part Of the World Trade Organization That's actually worked quite well and often in our interest, which is its adjudication panel for Dessau for resolving trade disputes as you know, so well, Richard, We've got election this country come November 30 including for the President states Exactly is a rumor to that effect, but but a cz you look at that possible fork in the road. How do you look at a Biden now? We know Harris. Administration with respect of foreign policy, as opposed to Trump Pence. But I think the differences would be much more willingness to work with allies. I think that would probably be sort of the foundation. They deal with allies and then approach all these regional Hang on global challenges. I think you'd probably see reentry into various international arrangements and institutions. The problem for Ah Biden Harris Administration of the challenge would be Their inheritance would be rough and be really daunting. Inbox. Four years ago, David you'll recall, I wrote a book called the World in This Ray. Well, Now it's disarray on on steroids, so I think they were, they would face that all the time. Think about it. The next president and vice president are going to have to still deal with a pandemic here at home, 10 2 million's unemployed, a country divided by politics and race, possibly by the election itself, so that they're going to have a situation where they'll be greater demand than ever for American leadership and involvement in the world. At the same time, the home front will be calling out For for repair. So, Richard, you deal with these world leaders on a regular basis. Is there a pent up demand for an alternative? President.

Coming up this hour, I talked to President Trump's adviser on domestic policy, Giron Smith about the administration's plans to help with the country's economic recovery. Plus, the doctor who ran the Louisiana health system is here with her. Take The uptick in Corona virus cases in some Southern states and I talked to club for growth President David McIntosh about what kind of economic growth we could see between now and the election in November. But first we've seen the consequences of decades of growing economic inequality in the effects of the pandemic on black and brown communities. And in the protests in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd. I talked to someone who has spent his career addressing these problems. Rashad Robinson is president of color of Change, leading online Racial Justice organization. I asked for a shot to explain what those of us who haven't experienced economic inequality need toe understand? I think, oftentimes what we don't understand is that far too often we talk about inequality as it's unfortunate, almost like it's a car accident. I could sort of just happened. Rather than its unjust and so as a result of talking about it is unfortunate. We have all these ideas that is just it sort of kind of naturally occurs and there's sort of nothing we could do or that we can put for charitable solutions to the problems. We can help people get coats in the wintertime. We can do things like sin water bottles to Flint instead of actually dealing with the structural reasons of why a city because of the ways in which we Have created attacks thatis that has taken money off the books made cities have to go on austerity and as a result of really attacked our sort of public resource in public goods and sort of an example ends up with the situation is not unfortunate, but unjust. And so I think for a lot of folks who are sort of Kind of hear about economic inequality. Maybe want to do something? Maybe put a little bit of money into those sort of charitable pots around the holidays and wonder why things are not changing. It's because you actually can't change these problems about changing the rules because it's not unfortunate. It's not a car accident. It is actually a result of a whole set of choices we have made at the policy level that have gotten us into this situation. Certainly we hear reports of some particularly younger members of the African American community, who say Look, it is the system. As you just said, and voting on Ly feeds into the system. We did use something more fundamental than boat and start changing Who's in office? What do you say to those people? No, I think that it's a mix of both, right. I mean, sometimes folks tell black folks just vote when we're out protesting, But black people are the protagonists in the American story of voting. No group of people in America have fought harder to be able to actually access the ballot have gone up against more barriers. Even in Kentucky. The sort of images and stories of people are begging on the doors waiting on incredibly long lines is holding places were closed. And so folks have voted, But I think a really good example that we And sort of look at is over the last several years as the movements around police accountability and movements around criminal justice reform have moved from protest to the ballot in terms of electing reform minded district attorney's around the country and those before money district attorney's going into office with mandates that were at the intersection of criminal justice and economic justice. So, for instance, reducing the size of jails, which is sort of not just good for our tax base, but deals Go to things like money Bear, which is a sort of way in which poor communities are fleeced by the criminal justice system. Where's you're better off being guilty and rich than innocent Impor Because folks are 70% of people who are behind bars in jails are not there because they have done they've been convicted of anything. They're there because They're too poor to pay for their freedom. And so we have all of these sort of issues that people actually have taken to the ballot. I think the pushback people here is that when folks we're told to simply vote, a zit voting alone will stop all the problems when young people, young black people in particular in 2012 Outpace all other young voters in terms of turning out for Barack Obama and still saw all the sort of barriers and push backs towards their towards the sort of goals that we had or are casting our vote. And so I say that voting is a piece of that puzzle. And what also has to happen is there has to be accountability when I talked to many of the presidential candidates on the Democratic side as they sort of reached out and had conversations with us. One of the things I asked him about, wasn't just the what? In terms of all the policies and proposals they were putting in their black agenda, But the half not just you know what they cared about, but how they were going to get us there. What were the entrenched forces? They were going to push back on toe, actually get those things in place. So you say that you want to create more wealth generation in black communities. What had been the barriers to those ancient How you gonna push back against the lobbyist pushed back against the corporate forces? I have stood in the way of that type of generations. You're gonna create a new tax sort of status of insuring that wealthy folks pay their fair share how you're going to get there. But are you hearing that from any candidates, either from Donald Trump, the Republican or from Joe Biden, the presumptive nominee, other side are they come out specific plans about changing the system to address economic inequality. You know, Donald Trump has talked about sort of draining this month. And we've seen those sort of swap show up in the most swampy ISS ways way you know, with all sorts of ways in which corporations have been able to enter the back door and gain all sorts of access on the Democratic side. You know, we're still sort of pushing by on pushing the Democrats around. What is their agenda going to be on as it relates to corporate power and holding corporations accountable, thanks to Rashad Robinson, president of color Change your listening to Bloomberg balance of power on Bloomberg Radio.

Tara Brach: Making it RAIN
"Tar. Brock is a giant in the meditation. World and deservedly so she's got a PhD HD in clinical psychology. She treats people one on one and in psychological or a therapy setting. She also has done deep Buddhist teacher training and has gone on to found the insight meditation community of Washington which is an immensely popular community center in Washington has extremely popular podcast. And she's got a new book. It's called radical compassion so that's her bio but before we dive into the actual discussion. I want to read you a little bit of what I wrote about her. In my first I book ten percent happier because it's going to be up a lot of what is interesting about what follows in this conversation so I I encountered her when I went to a this is before I even and really started meditating that much I went to a meditation event here New York City and she was up on stage. I had a bit of a negative reaction. Here's what I wrote. The opening opening speaker was a woman in her fifties named Tara Brach. She had long brown hair and pleasant Semitic features. She was holding forth in a creamy clawing tone. The style was astonishingly effected artificially soft and slow as if she were trying to give you a rocky massage with her voice she exhorted us to love ourselves. Quote Unquote invited us to close our eyes and trust in the Oceanus in the vastness in the mystery in the awareness in the love so that you could really really sense. Nothing is wrong with me. I couldn't bear to look over at Jason. That was the friend I brought to. The event who I imagined must be silently cursing my name Brock. It closed with a poem that dramatic pause and finally a self serious Soto. voce thank you. So that's what my first impression of her was. I then ended up going back to the event the next day and to my surprise Tara ended up explaining something that was deeply useful so to me. I was aware of the basic theory of how mindfulness could work that. You could view your feelings non-judgmental but they didn't really understand how to apply it in my life and she explained it in a way that knocked it out of the park so when we read that section to my profound surprised. The person who unlock this mystery for me was Tara Brock driven by some unfathomable masochistic urge. And even though I knew mark my friend Mark Epstein wouldn't be speaking I had dragged myself self back to the ballroom for the second day of the conference at First Brock was driving me nuts with all of her ostentatious head bowing bell ringing and Nama stay saying but then she redeemed herself. She nailed the method for applying mindfulness in acute situations albeit with somewhat dopey acronym rain are Dr for recognize a for allow I for investigate and for non identification recognize self explanatory using my David Westin example. Sample David West and was my boss at the time in those moments after are even in the best light quite ambivalent meeting job number one was simply to recognize my my feelings by the way I had recently in this in. This story had a meeting with my boss that was my then. Boss was semi successful. Jabber one was simply to acknowledge my feelings. It's like agreeing to pause in the face of what's here and just acknowledge. The actuality said Brock. The first step is admitting it allow is where you lean in the Buddhist. Were always talking about how you had to let go but what they really meant is let it be or as brock put it in her inimitable. Way offer the inner whisper of Yes. The third step investigate is where things got truly practical sticking with the Western example sample again he was my boss at the time after. I've acknowledged my feelings and let them be the next move. would be to check out how they're affecting my body. Is it making my face. Hot My chest buzzy my head throb. This strategy sounded intuitively correct to me especially given that I was a guy who's been diagnosed post war. Depression had manifest itself in flu like like symptoms. The final step not identification meant seeing that just because I was feeling angry or jealous or fearful that did not render me a permanently. I angry or jealous person. Those were just passing states of mind. The Brock plans seemed eminently workable to me at as grading as she had seemed at first I now found on something comforting about her manner. She was after all a trained professional in both Buddhism psychotherapy that's Connor who had spent her life helping people? I realize is with a hot blast of self directed opprobrium that yet again I had been unfair. Okay so you're going to hear me. Talk to Tara about her. Her feelings about what I wrote. Yes kinda almost done. I promise you're going to hear me. Talk to Tara about her feelings about what I wrote and then over the course of the interview we're GonNa come back and ways they were very meaningful eating. I think to both of us to how I reacted to her feelings. And we're also GONNA talk about a lot more including her new book about how to use this rain technique in your own life so now to the delight of Connor. I'm GonNa shut up and here. Is Our Brooke. Nice to see you and you. I think this is the second time we've met. The first time we met in. My memory was backstage at some meditation event. And I remember being a little hesitant because I saw you there and I thought I made fun of her a little bit in my book and I didn't know how it was going to go but then you gave me a big hug. So a where are we with that are you. Are You mad at me for the little. It was actually a really great experience for me. Because you know everyb- it's fame and disrepute and you know and you made fun of me some and you also appreciated the thing that most matter to me. Which is the practice of rain and I figured you know I can survive this well? I've talked about this a lot a lot on the show. So my apologies to folks had to hear me hold forth on this too much but I got a three. Do you know what a three sixty review is. If you've ever heard I got one and it basically all the people in our many of the people in my life anonymously commented on my strengths and weaknesses and one of the weaknesses was being judgmental. It'll actually called myself out for that. I just read the passage where I described you in the book and at the end of the passage I basically say we. She's introducing reducing me to this incredible technique. Which is called rain which will dive into and look at me? What a judgmental jerk I am but you I think were really an early victim victim of mine On the score in the meditation world and there was a message for me in it too. Because I'm basically out to wake up and be able to to present things in a way that are going to reach people and I suspected for you my way was had too much of a A A kind of Louis to sweet flavor and I realized. Oh there's going to be a message. People like Dan that that's the way they receive it and I think as we keep ingrowing we just get more flexible ways. We present things so there was room for that. Yes I agree I think yeah you have a way of talking about this that works for hundreds of thousands of people my way of talking about it or thinking about it or acting it out in the world is very different and that's the importance of having many folks out there talking about the Dharma land on this new to me too. It's really it's really exciting to me. Actually and it's exciting when the dialogues happen because basically we're free when we all stretch say more go. Yeah the more first of all as a teacher. The more flexibility I have in how I present things in the more sensitive. I am to the different ways. People receive things the more effective I can be and as a practitioner For instance this morning I was talking to my husband about a book that right now. I'm Reading For the twentieth time. And it's I am that by three nurse Saga Datta and it's a book about non dual reality about seeing how it really constantly looking at. How am I getting identified right in this moment like really seeing past The coagulation of self often recognizing okay. I'm not this particular personality. I'm not this body and recognizing a larger sense of being and so we were talking about at that and I then I just said you know that is fantastic when my mind is quiet enough but if I'm caught in some anxiety for me to say oh I'm not this. Anxiety actually is a subtle way of pushing it away and what's more important as for me to feel the wave of anxiety and in some way I say okay this belongs this is part of this is a wave in the ocean you know and to actually feel it an opening to it and not resisting the identification actually dissolves so the pathway taught in the book that I'm riveted by right. This moment isn't the pathway at any given moment Qatar will at work for many people when they're stuck in a certain way so it just having that Keeping the whole domain of practice actes fresh though in any given moment. There's a an intuitive way to respond to what's arising now that actually deepens freedom and not going by road really is is actually what works in the most deep ways

"Gain you you garner a level of competence that ninety plus percent of those players that participate net game is making it to the NBA. All McDonald's all Americans aren't created equal a guy like Chris Webber was able it has the potential to enter the draft after high school and probably would have went on and have a stellar career without plan two years in college. I wouldn't ready after high school even though I was a McDonald's all American to enter the draft. So it's Sean point is going to affect players like Zion. But we gotta make sure we look deeper into the box scores. David, maybe we can't say both of these things are true this system as it is currently constituted is not fair and needs to be looked at an adjusted, but it doesn't mean that college basketball is meaningless or relic or needs to go away or be drastically reshaped. Maybe both of those things can be true does that seem reasonable? But we have to make sure that we remember that things have changed. And this is a market, you know, all the way down to high school. Now, it's a business and to lock out a specific group, meaning the players that guys that are generating the business. There's something wrong with that. And so when we talk about changing, the landscape of college, we're talking about changing the opportunities that are available for these guys. There are a lot of kids that don't fit and there studies coming out now articles that are being produced about how ineffective the education of college athletes is receiving. So we have to sorta get away from this idea that these guys are being educated and giving the type of information that they need to go out and handle themselves. A lot of things that I learned about the NBA and the things that I needed to learn about the NBA I didn't learn until I got there. I have to leave it there because we're up against the break. But very interesting discussion, and it will continue. I want to remind you that we have a game Saturday night on ESPN tomorrow night. Six eastern Duke squares off against Syracuse at the carrier dome. And then Kansas will take on Texas Tech. After that as we go. Tom is weighed in on the whole high school to NBA proposal? We have another hall of fame coach, ROY Williams. Joining us live in our next hour. What does he think of all of this? And by the way, his team just beat Duke the other night. We'll talk to coach ROY in our next hour live here on ESPN. You have seen fight night happens tomorrow with TI though, Santos.

"Hembo, daily got. Him. Roy Williams joining us. Thirty eastern time. Coach ROY will join us. And right now coach is is with us on the phone Michigan state coach, and we always so appreciate your taking the time here and coach I know you heard a little bit of the conversation that we were just having about the NBA's proposal to lower the age requirement for players back from nineteen to eighteen which of course, would have a significant impact. We would think on college basketball. I would love to hear your perspective on that possibility. Well, I think you know, it's gonna be a possibility of probably a probability. I you know, I I don't have any problem with it. If kids don't want to be in college. I don't have any problem. I just worry about how many are gonna make bad decisions. But you know, I thought you were going to ask me about Zion and hanging out for the I'm one hundred percent for that to be honest with you. I I think he should hang it up. And the only reason I do is it gives the rest of us the chance to win. But honestly, I don't think he said, I don't think you live in fear every day. You know, the Paul Georgia. We were every day. I mean, there's freaks of nature. But then again, I've always stuck with this. I never can say nor do I think anybody else should would somebody should do if they're not walking in their shoes. So I, you know, I have not been in the same position as as David west or Jalen rose. But I did get a chance to watch David west a lot, I recruited Jalen rose. A bet my life. Neither one of them would have said out those were tough cookies, and I don't think they would've. And so I just had a national championship reunion. What Magic Johnson's group, and they were telling stories that they were foreign foreign a league playing the league leader Ohio State magic sprained his ankle, so bad. He could barely walk him out. The second half lead him to the game that propelled them into the NCAA tournament, which then they want it. So, you know, there's a lot of ways to look at it guys. But I don't think the real competitors. Would I think he is a competitor? And yet I've not walked in his shoes. So it'd be it'd be wrong of me to answer it in any other way. No, you're absolutely right. Jalen said yesterday definitively. He would have gone back and played it and the. Yeah. I know that firsthand. But I do want to get your perspective. Even before he got hurt if the kid never got hurt Scottie Pippen who was a hall of fame basketball player set a month ago. The kid has made himself the first pick in the draft. Nothing is going to change that by continuing to play. He just puts himself in harm's way. Sort of completely de emphasizing the significance of the college game. I just wondering your perspective on where all this has gotten too. Because it just isn't what it was when magic was playing. What is your perspective on the way? People now are looking at the college basketball experience, in some cases, it doesn't matter. Bitel? Even said it best. You know? I I don't think it's not all about the money different job offers to go with more money. And I I understand that you know, life is about experiences and memories and different chapters in your life. And I do think my buddy mariuchi night every day talk about whenever we get together. You know, it all goes back to man, we both made a lot of money we both had some some fame. But man, there's nothing like college. We go back to northern Michigan go visit the trailer park. We lived in for two years. It's awesome. You know, those are part of the things. But then again, nobody was beating my door down for a hundred million dollars to play professional basketball. So I'm not sure you know, what I would have done. I hope and pray that every kid gets to enjoy the process to greatness and part of the process is high school to me college to me pro. And then beyond Tom Izzo was whether it's here, I be.

"Jammed packed today. Jalen, and Laura and farnam and look who's here. David west joins our desperate warning. Good. Have we got a lot to get to with you this morning when I start with a fellow that, you know, a little bit. You've heard of him his name is LeBron James and the Lakers starting the second half, which is really a third against the rockets last night. They need a win to get back to five hundred and early on. He is frustrated Jalen watch this LeBron posting up on Austin rivers. He's got all kinds of size advantage, but chasing has taken the shot. Instead he should have been upset. You matter with David. Westwood have done past him the ball. David physical with been the guy down there guarding front. Frustration from LeBron Lakers were down six at halftime. They're down nine here. Bad pass Kyle LeBron not having any of this sloppy play. Well, body language, also green, and he's trying to get these guys to understand. This is the big time game right after the all star break. So they would go down by as many as nineteen. But now here they come who's medal of Ron there within fourteen later. Lakers. Down a dozen LeBron coups my yes, he would score eighteen Lakers and the quarter on a fifteen four run there within seven here, we go to the fourth rocket support clink cappella gets colon for the screen, you tell me is that a foul. I didn't think it was a fall Mike, Dan, Tony agrees with you one of many thousand rockets would not like in this game. Meanwhile, James harden, taking strong he was gore exactly thirty so the street because now thirty two consecutive games, but next possession get a load of LeBron right here throw down to twenty nine and the Lakers are within three later still down three Brandon Ingram jail. What a gave me played scored twenty seven. He's at his best when he continues to attack and plays confidence. And here's the Brian against sizing up his man, and he's gonna take strong in the Lakers have come all the way back. They have a four point lead. This is when the drama would begin. There would be twenty eight to seventeen disparity in the number of fouls called in this game Twenty-eight called on the rockets seventeen on the Lakers. Here's one James harden. They call that a charge in its his six dollars out of the game and his era analytics players either want to shoot the three or take layup. Sometimes you gotta stop may range and take the shop. You think it's a good call. I think it's a really good call. Lebron takes the contact hardens out of the game. He doesn't like it later. Lakers up four Ingram. They're going to call the foul here on Chris Paul, it's close. And again, he is frustrated and the entire rocket bench, basically, loses their mind heck, Nichols wound up being called on just about everyone. He got mugged green death, man. So now want to get the referees. Harden, Paul, Dan, Joni all getting technical and the Lakers went all said and done win it one eleven one. Oh, six. Wasn't it on needed to reach a different level? Is that I need to be level right now, you know, just under circumstances that we're in. No just kick start into something a little bit earlier. They're not then I've done in the past. So I like, wow, Matt. And I would love man next. You know few games. I believe continue to get better and better and tonight was good stepping right direction. Okay. So yesterday marking the six time this year the Lakers overcame a fifteen point deficit to win only the clippers have more such games. Now, the rockets as you saw we're very frustrated with the officiating, and we're going to deal with that part of the story later because it does involve sort of a personal issue. They have with one of the officials and the NBA let's focus for a minute here. Sean farnum on the Lakers. Lebron what did you see last night? I just got all activated last night..
"david west" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Warrior fans should get their head around. Demarcus cousins is going to be a plug and play for David west. Okay. If you're if you're wondering how they're initially gonna try to use him how he's going to be rotated in what he's going to be David west. That's what this team has been missing is that he'll be a bulkier body. He can live at the elbow. He can step out two to three which is different than David. But it now puts the rotation in a better, you know, since the Damian Jones injury just in a structural better form because the team is so small, but you're going to see him with the second unit. You're going to see him and Klay going nuts, and he's going to be in the David west role. That's that's gonna be the the first an initial deal. And then they'll start to figure out now David never started very much so many DeMarcus will start but the David west role and hopefully. Even more than David did. That's the initial beginning of of this. And then as it ramps up, then you could see even more more damn. Well, there's no doubt that his role and who he plays with obviously how long he he play for who he play for all of that is going to evolve and the evolutionary process of DeMarcus cousins and his role with the warriors. I mean, that's that's going to be on. On a game by game basis. Obviously, maybe a quarter by quarter basis, you know, depending on how you want to look at it. So I I do think it's interesting and also informative that you kind of use David west and his role as sort of a template for DeMarcus because here's what's fascinating about tonight and going forward with cousins. Addition to the warriors until we see him play. And we kind of get some concrete answers that. This is the unknown. And with the exception of Kevin Durant's when he joined the warriors, and that wasn't really much of an unknown. You got a feeling that this was going to work out? Pretty, you know, pretty well. I would say that there was some mind blowing things when Durant joined the warriors right off the rip for me. It was the way he played defense and his willingness to do it. But point is that the warriors are an established brand, they're they're they're they are the best in the NBA and have been for the past coming up now on on five solid seasons. There hasn't been much of the unknown. You dig what I'm saying? You know, what you're going to get with the warriors. You know, what you're going to get offense. And I would say up until this year you knew what you were going to defensively and when he came to individual warrior players. With the exception of a few guys. There wasn't much of. Hey, what is this guy going to bring with like, I said, the exception of Kevin Durant? But you knew what he was going to bring he was gonna come in. And and he was going to give you twenty five plus a game and just an all around crazy offensive talent who had an ability and a willingness to play defense. So with DeMarcus we don't know, you don't know, I physically how is he going to hold up. We'll the achilles holdup. Will he have injuries that are related to the achilles? How long will it take for him to get into quote basketball, shape, end quote, and then how will fit into what the warriors to offense ity? Can he provide the warriors a little bit of defense at at that five spot is still a capable and willing rebounder does he still command a double team? These are all questions that we do not have the answer to right now. And we might not get total answers once this game tonight against the clippers finish. But my point is that we're going into a game with the warriors where there's a player, and we don't know anything about him and how he's going to fit in with this team. We haven't had these kinds of questions over the last four or five years. Yeah. I mean, we we have people texting in four awaits as fits more interested in how you think boogie will fit in defensively. Is it going to bring that missing big man defense? No, that's not. That's not. What is he going to bring because I think he's gonna balk don't bring something. Yeah. He's got. He's got to get you something whether it was just a little bit of a couple of things or a lot of one thing. And whether that's rebounding what he's got to give you something. And. He's going to play no matter what because he's a supreme offensive talent. But he can't be a total zero out there. That could be a total zero we'll either, but we don't know what he's going to bring. This guy's not a shot blocker, and I'll never has been. So as far as big man defense, what you're going to you know, nurse would be a guy people should think about when you have was playing the warriors. So that back to back he could lean on Draymond or on kevon looney and because of his fault. He could get right to the rim because he's just like physically larger human being guys that think they're going to go on the block and move DeMarcus cousins nine feet and go right to the rim. That will not happen. He weighs two hundred seventy pounds any six ten and he's ornery so that kind of defense. He's definitely a provide. But coming from the weak side and blocking shots like Andrew bogut and different. That has never been as game. And that's not gonna be as game. So maybe maybe it shows up. It is is game. Yeah. But but will what will happen though, is it dream on will now have a little tag team partner who's not so little. Is that if you see looney the last couple of games he's been phenomenal. But balk Stevie atoms.

"david west" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"David west. With this this morning from the floor of the new York Stock Exchange with chairman and CEO of General Motors bar is well now go to Detroit and David will chew will synthesize the market talk, the vehicle talk of Mary Barra. I think David Welsh. Joel people wanna know is since two thousand fifteen with at a run rate of seventeen and a half million vehicles year in maybe the historic tendency was sixteen million vehicles a year. Moore's it number going to be in five years from Mary Barra for the leadership of Ford and for the rest of auto America. Who we believe if you talk to Alex partners C consulting firm that does a lot of auto industry work. They're saying it's going to go all the way down to fifteen million voters others figured it'd be about seventeen billion a year or maybe sixteen and a half somewhere in that range. And that's probably right. Fluctuate? Basically, you're looking at a US auto market that let's call it seventeen million a year. Oh, and then plus or minus based on where the economy is. And you know, he's always been a very cyclical business knowing she's blaming growth, which is why tuck stock to own but. Within the soup of reasons for all this angst about autos. What is your heaviest weighting Pinhas knowledgeable? I'm clueless. Like a lot of our listeners. An auto dynamics, what's the real waiting of all this auto anx. Is it electric cars? Is it ridesharing something else? Really near term. It's the amount of investment. They have to put into the two things. You just mentioned you're talking about a wad of money. Pouring into electric cars that are at the moment expensive to build, and it's not really clear to consumers want to pay for that technology. Thank you and then autonomous vehicles that's expensive stuff to frankly. It's not clear that anybody or I shouldn't say anybody that consumers will in mass decided to give up owning a car transportation by the right? Who's going to have the courage to push against those trends? Super. Well, actually, I would say one company does is pushing against that. Because they're relying on alpha biddings Waymo to do all the development of autonomous technology, and they really have plunged into electric vehicles. They're they're fine with being a fast power and all that stuff. GM wants to be a leader. They're pushing ahead. And right now, they're making a lot of money in a regular core. Car business to be able to find that stuff. David Wells, just a little bit more on General Motors around seventy five seventy six percent of General Motors revenue comes from North America, the rest international and also their financial arm. Tell us about the health of the non US business of GM specifically, let's start with China. Is they're looking at sales being stable this year after it worked down last year. GM's weren't actually, but the rest of the market was and GM also told us this morning that they see their China income being a little bit less than it was last year. But but pretty stable and GM makes about two billion a year in China. International business. There isn't much of it. They've got Latin America, which are South America. They do. Okay. They're better than most. But it's just not a very profitable market. They make a few hundred million a year and a good year currencies bad. They could lose a little bit. But it's not it's not a big deal, and this kind of it. They've left everywhere else. They're out of Europe. Russia India south southeast Asian markets there. They don't do much in Australia. So Royal sister. That's about it. So so you would it be wrong to say that Ford and GM are really no longer global players. If your definition in global is the sun never setting on the GM or Ford empires. Then they're not doing Europe, even though they're restructuring. GM is kind of a a Sinoe American company. Now, they do you can look at it. Another way they export from Mexico the Chevy equinox. A hundred different markets around the world, very small numbers is market by market. But in total, it's a decent op. So technically, they're still global. But if you're talking about the bottom line, this is China, the US g minds everything. Okay. The reason that I ask you this is because if there is a downturn if we do go to fifteen million annual sales of autumn vehicles. Then if they have to cut the cuts are coming in North America. Absolutely. There's no question about that. Just think about it in China. They have plants they co own with Shanghai Automotive and a couple of the partners. Yeah. It would be here because they really don't have that many plants in other places, and they wouldn't cut it in the labor is your Detroit guy. David Welsh with his folks as we pick up the pieces off of Mary bars interview with David Westin. What's the difference between what GM's done in the last twelve months versus Ford? I mean, what's the body language in Detroit right now, besides they're rolling out, the explorer, the Ford Explorer, they did that at the lion stadium for job cuts in the Detroit area. Yeah. I mean, what's the body language between GM and Ford in Detroit right now. Well, look GM is that ahead of the curve with the cuts. They did at first. But everybody knows it's coming at four. They've already telegraphed. And then everyone expects the let's call it third shooter trap with with Chrysler to do some cuts at some point. Even though they've actually been expanding some of their plants in this area. Yeah. The the buddy languages. Sort of fear and head-scratching. Let's call it goes. GM's printing money, they're going to do even better next year. But they're still cutting a lot of jobs. No GM would say we're going to be doing better next year because we have these jobs, and that's right. But that's pretty clinic comfort because a lot of people this month. Right. We're going to be notified that that. They're they're on the involuntary separation. In other words, you're fired list. GM correct. So if you're one of those people everybody's kinda whistling by the graveyard at GM, right? Look if if they if they survived the cuts they're going to be with a much. What I don't understand is is I'm looking at the financial statement on the Bloomberg revenue growth is non-existent. They've managed that income down to seven eight cents on the dollar who's counting their EBITDA margin. A good fifteen cents on the dollar. I get that. But free cash flows going nowhere is this business. Or is it a triage to get to the next decade? She was supposed to grow this year is to as high as six billion from four and a half last year. So that is going up because they're they're making all these cuts would look this is this is why these stocks are not even when they GM pre-market trading last. I look was up about six percent. A good day for the shares, but long let's call medium-term these are tough stocks to own because for the reasons you're bringing up I mean, you you can keep running running the business. Really? Well, they're getting lean. They're stealing the Beatles. I'd make a lot of money or getting rid of the vehicles that don't this is all said smart business. But when you don't see growth in the US, you don't see sort of shorten in medium-term growth in China. Where do you grow this business and the answer is autonomous vehicles and selling rides? That's not gonna happen for five years. None of us. Businesses are going to make money. I learned a lot on this. David welsh. Thank you so much in Detroit after Mary, Barra speaking with David Westin pin, you look at the charter GM, you'll the charter Ford. I I think it's interesting. If you didn't know what those names were you, really? Yes. Well, and if you combine that with a charter the price of gasoline that would really be a head scratcher because at an average of two dollars and twenty five cents a gallon for gasoline. That's an incentive to own an automobile. And yet that's not what we're seeing sales Trent David westerns interview with Mary barred. I get it's about product cars were doing this for doing this. We're doing this about the payment. It's about the monthly payment. Whether it's a lease payment agreement do his point on Thomas cars. I mean, you know, who the first mover Bloomberg surveillance is going to be on a of cars, I could see David Wilson in an autonomous car. David. What do you think? I'll be lucky if an autonomous car can get into my garage. That's actually a really good. Yes. To say. The least let me tell this force in important Bloomberg surveillance market drivers. And David Wilson. Always brought to you by Audi. Don't let someone else drive off in the Audi model you've always wanted. Visit a tristate Audi dealer to get behind the wheel of your Audi today. Thank you Tri state for their support. I told you yesterday. I don't know where you begin. Can you begin with GM today? It's one of the most active stocks in early trading. It's up about six percent. And what they had to say about the auto industry is going well with its biggest US rivals to you've got Ford Motor shares up about one and a half percent. Fiat Chrysler up more than three percent. The daily bounce absolutely at the very least, you know, they're saying something positive about earnings for this year and adjusted basis being as high as seven dollars a share analysts looking for five dollars ninety two cents on average. So well above those projections. They're also saying that the GM is that there were when they come out with their numbers for twenty eighteen that prophet will be higher than the top of their range for the year. So what else do you while Citigroup's up one percent? The Bank agreed to provide confidential information to activist investor value at capital, which has a stake vatted about one point eight billion dollars the agreement. Also gives value access. City insiders to discuss strategy and governments issues this agreement coming out before city reports fourth quarter results on Monday. They're going to be kicking earning season for the biggest. We'll get your. All right net. Flicks up two percent. The video subscription service at Raymond James. No, they're not. But they do have the firm's top rating now strong by Raymond James said expect higher estimates for twenty twenty sales and profit General Electric, though, down half. A percent quality earnings will be an issue as GE overhauls itself, according to Gordon Haskett analyst, John inch. He cut his profit projections and price target on the company of a big fan of Janis from Bear Stearns days. I thought you might be activision blizzard's down nine percent. The video game maker is cutting ties with bungee the developer of destiny games. Now activision Santa conference call November that destiny hadn't met its expectations. And so now, they're they're cutting ties as a result PGN is down seven percent. California regulators offered no assurances at the meeting yesterday. Would help keep the utilities solvent. PGE was cut to junk bond stats by Moody's two days after SNP did every day stone x percent next day white percent. It'd be they'll you know. So many days down like that. Well, it was up Wednesday was down less than half a percent yesterday. So it's sort of resumes. Three more, and I want to talk about okay, I'll give you to jail resorts down eleven and a half percent. The ski resort owners set an earnings gauge will be below its full year estimate. They'll said preholiday business came up short of expectations. And then there's still right up. Fifteen percent, the Canadian cannabis companies majority owner, this is the investment for privateer holdings said it won't sell any shares in the first half and sale restrictions tied to.

David west alluded to some unreported adversity that the team had encountered on its way to a second straight NBA title the issue in question finally has been revealed, according to the athletic Golden State dealt with a team wide meningitis scare in mid March. The concern stemmed from an outside vendor. Who prepared the teams food daily after contracting? A contagious bacterial form of the disease. The vendor took time off to fight it eventually returning to work with the team per the athletic. The scare was at its height between a road game at Minnesota March eleventh and a home game against the Lakers March fourteenth the team went to great lengths to ensure that the disease didn't spread to its players and coaching staff.

They also were dealing with injuries to multiple key players making the health scare more worrisome. It was just a serious health scare where for me. It's just something like, wow. West now retired from the NBA told the athletic that was in my mind at the time. It was the entire team that was affected. It was crazy. It was the heart of the season. It was something that again, it showed the strength of the organization that had got through it to win the title, though, the organization declined to comment on the. Thematic story. A team spokesman confirmed its details. Injury updates forward. Draymond green has been ruled out for the rest of the team's road trip. He's not gonna play on this trip. But he is making some strides Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said after shoot around Monday at state farm arena. He had a good workout this morning. Everything is positive. He ramped up his work. But the timing just won't allow him to play on this trip. I think it'll be shortly thereafter, Green's been dealing with his cO issue for almost four weeks. Not including the November thirteenth win over Atlanta that he missed because of suspension Green's been sidelined eleven of the past thirteen games including the past nine by injury. The warriors have two more games Wednesday in Cleveland and Friday in Milwaukee before returning to the bay area. Head of Monday's game against Minnesota at oracle forward. Alfonso.
