"devon" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"For rich eisen. That's right. Reaches off today. What a beautiful Friday here in the northeast. Both of these beautiful wherever you are, Devon givens 97 5, the fanatic, we have to fill out the next right here on the rich eisen show. Conspiracy theories. Aliens. Paranormal. Bigfoot, UFO. Just some of the things they talk about on theories of the third kind. These mummified children were sacrificed in an Inca religious ritual. In this ritual, the three children were initially drugged, placed inside a small chamber that was 4.9 feet beneath the ground and left there to die. Theories of the third kind listen wherever you get your podcasts. On this Friday NBA playoffs with zoom after day off yesterday, sixers down two games to none to the Miami Heat. Yeah, the Dallas Mavericks hosting Phoenix, they're also down two games to none. They still call the Wells Fargo center. That's gonna be rocking site in Philadelphia, but the question is, will Joel embiid play? I guess he's listed as out facial fracture concussion, chance of him playing. We'll hear not let's hit the Philadelphia Devon givens 97 5 the fanatic, sixers insider as well as the host of the sixers pre and postgame show joining us. Devon, what's the status as of right now for Joel embiid tonight? Well, Dan, the latest has been that they've upgraded into doubtful instead of out. That out was the term being used yesterday. Now he is doubtful feeling better, clearing concussion protocol and he's looking to give it a go. When I last checked and checked in with a few sources, he's absolutely in the place where he really, really, really wants to play the game tonight. He is a guy that I think he got to like strap him, handcuff him to the bench to keep him from being look, he's a baller, man. He knows how important it is. He plays, they can win. He doesn't play they're down three O. Is he that type of guy where it's like, you better put some weights on me if you want me to play because I'll be out there, I don't care if my face will fall apart. It doesn't matter. Yes, that's who we've become because early on dealing with the injuries. He, of course, he wanted to play, but he had to go through the first two years of being off 31 games in his technically his rookie season. And then coming back and he's dealt with injuries in the past where they've had to really the doctors had to tell him or tell Brett Brown at the time to head coach. He can not go or he had a minute restriction. That's who he has been in the past and now that he's become the player that he has being the franchise of the 76ers. And always wanting to be out there always wanting to be the leader and he's matured in that way then where in the past, we were wondering about his maturity, always on social media, taking shots at people and while he does that occasionally he takes his spots and they are very funny, but he picks his spots now and it's all about basketball. It's all about him winning the team winning and being out there for his teammates and being down two O. It has been destroying him, not being able to play and he really wants to get out there on the floor tonight. So yes, you're absolutely right. That's who he really is at this point. You have to strap him down and it's a fight right now between he and the doctors of getting him to at least them up tonight. Devon givens 97.5 the fanatic joining us here on the rich eisen show dance Schwartzman infra rich, I've known you ten years, you're a huge basketball fan. I said before you came on the show that for me, getting back in the basketball more than 80s 90s guy that liked the inside game. Joel embiid's kind of like a transcendent type of player, we're being robbed as fans because a healthy Joel embiid on the sixers against Miami to me is the best series in the NBA playoffs because you got a well coached Miami team, but they don't have the height to match Joel embiid. I mean, what happens if Joel embiid's out there and I do think he's gonna play there, tell me how you think Miami can cover his skill set when they don't match height wise. Well, you know the funny part about it is as you look at him and a lot of his work was back to the basket early on, but each year he and his trainer drew hanlon, they tried to diversify his game a little bit more and they watch film of guards forwards and centers to act different things to them and oftentimes then I'll see something that he does in the game watching all 82 plus the playoffs. And I look at this guy 7 two close to 300 pounds and say, he's not supposed to be able to do that. Yeah. Right? A guard is supposed to be able to do it. Kind of like when we look at Kevin Durant and his handling his ball handling ability with the things that he's able to do as a 7 footer, yet he plays on the wing. And that's who Joel embiid is. And as far as the Miami Heat trying to defend him, they this is why we thought this was the perfect matchup for the sixers, not Milwaukee, not Boston in the second round. It was the Miami Heat because they match up so well because he's the best player on the floor. He's the most dominant..
DOJ Investigating Hunter Biden for Foreign Lobbying Violations
"Another story that has come out from the Washington examiner and it shows that Hunter Biden is under current federal investigation for foreign lobbying. Same sort of thing that we've been alleging for quite some time. That Hunter Biden is being investigated now by the Department of Justice for lobbying fellow on behalf of fellow countries and lobbying our own government. Wonder how many people would have wanted to know that before they voted for Biden? Hunter Biden is being investigated in his business partner Devon archer has now been indicted, isn't it? Doesn't it beg the question of whether or not your own current government is bought when it comes to making decisions with Ukraine or China? This is incredibly frustrating for me. Because we as Trump supporters, we as conservatives, we followed the rules. We did what was right. Through our different efforts at turning point action or through my own personal advocacy efforts, not of that of turning point USA, we worked hard, we were motivating crowds. We were organizing people to try to vote for Donald Trump. All the while there was a broader conspiracy at play and why you say oh Charlie, come on, it's not a conspiracy. They admitted it, there's a story in Time Magazine that said, the secret history of the shadow campaign that won the 2020 election. That's the definition of a conspiracy, by the way.

"Way. Miranda, there is a increasing amount of chatter about the Russia Ukrainian issue. And it begs the question any time this kind of surfaces, what capital flows existed or exist between the Ukrainian government or the Ukrainian power structure and Hunter Biden? What do we know as far as money that Hunter Biden received from Ukrainian oligarchs, gas companies, and even Russian, as well? Please explain. Well, there's less money coming from Russia and Ukraine that's evident on the laptop and in the bob linsky material than there is from China. But what we know is that, first of all, that Hunter Biden was being paid $83,000 a month by the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, burisma during his father's vice presidency.

"devon" Discussed on Wellness and Wanderlust
"We did not go in depth about it and so it was even then when it was a room full of girls at it felt shameful and it felt like this thing. We weren't supposed to talk about. And once i realized once i learned the in depth about it in school and then started to talk about it with my friends i was able to shake that and say oh are this is actually an amazing part of me that i can harness and use to work towards my advantage rather than seeing it as a burden which you know it can be at times. I don't wanna paint it in that lake romanticize light because there are some uncomfortable things associated with it but it can be both and at the same time. I love that too. And i think to your point of duality of it like i just read summer. Recently that it was a quote having a good relationship with your period is a form of resistance. And i really find that to be incredibly empowering because basically what it says to me is again. A relationship has never all good or bad right every relationship. We have whether it's with ourselves arts of ourselves or other people are easy. Parts are hard parts and there's everything in between why in this in having a good relationship with your period being a form of resistance. It's resisting the societal standard. That's basically put on us everywhere from what you just said from sitting in a classroom in sex all the way to you know scented tampons. There's this whole industry that says that having a period is like you said it's shameful or it just gets put in a box so i love that quote of having a good relationship with your periods form of resistance because it you're right. It's not painting it in this romantic. Easy thing it's just saying learning to work with yourself and in an accept and embrace whatever that looks like is a way of basically sticking it to the man agreed. I love that. And i definitely have those memories and sex. Ed of the teachers never really they. They kind of glossed over that and they did say was not necessarily accurate to my experience as someone who did have cramps where i would sometimes have to miss class. Even you know you were in a lot of discomfort and they really just kind of glossed over it. It was something that you had to be really sneaky about oftentimes in You know definitely that source of shame. That doesn't have to be. I mean even the commercials now were there finally not using that blue liquid anymore but it took however many years for that to happen. Yeah it's incredible to see that and it really shows that we're heading in that right direction and that it is no longer a taboo topic at least not to the same degree that it was absolutely and it allows us to carry life. Do you know we can do so many amazing things as women and we do carry a lot of shame with us. So i'd love to know a little bit more about how the two of you teamed up toward this common mission and what all you do together. Yes so it. All started with an internship. Actually when was in grad school. I had required internship for a semester and i really realized my passion for women's health while i was in school and so as i was searching for different companies to turn with i stumbled upon cycle on instagram and immediately fell in love with the mission with the branding with just the overall vibe and i felt already reading the bio that i was devon's friend.

He's been playing them on an opera most of his life. And if you're not familiar with the concept. These games are a little like board games just about the board when players roll the dice. They moved the narrative forward and have to cooperate with other players to get towards the end goal. A game usually last two to three hours. With an average of four to six players games. masters like devin are one part storyteller. One part game referee. They make sure.

Is "DeFi" the Future of Finance?
"Hard to say exactly what will happen. But you know defy did exist before this bull market and there were great yield to be had there too. There's different places that yields come from and we'll break those down but some of them lend themselves to bull markets some of them might lend themselves to bear markets. How about we take maybe. An example of an average passive crypto investor in our audience will make a character call them defied devon and defy. Devon's curious about defy. But he hasn't pursued it. So defy devon has a base account and he has ten thousand twenty thousand dollars worth of bitcoin. Whatever number works easy for our math. We'll just toss it into his coin based account was like walk into the process of getting into the world of defy understanding what it is what the risks are what the opportunities are and how to go to work making passive or somewhat active investments and getting yield returns on that crypto coins. The entire defy landscape can of break down into two different opportunities. The first one is this idea of like staking your assets somewhere or loaning them someone and the other one is borrowing against your assets and investing the money that you borrow pretty much. Everything falls into those to defy devon. Who's just got a coin accounting. Some bitcoin he's going to probably use a little steppingstone. Which is he's gonna use see. Five before he goes defy and see is centralized finance versus defy. which is decentralized finance. And essentially there's these companies like you may have heard of block by neck so is another big one and these are sort of like these banks inbetween crypto and defy and they will do defy the for you and they will pay you. A percentage of the yield. So they're like the coin base of defy essentially. Yeah they are. I mean they're banks. It's the same model that a bank has always had right. You stick your money in a bank account the bank without telling you goes out and loans it out to people invested in stuff and they give you the bank. Is you a half of a percent. Maybe on a good year. But in defy land the sea fi companies are paying eight percent on stable coins somewhere around five to six percent on things like bitcoin.

They started making a lotta money from advertising to people who want to sell things on ebay so it was a great little business. They had Ebay over the years you may have noticed has shifted to emphasize more selling like big retailers and increasing the fees on little guys who want to sell things so the newsletter became i think a little more critical overtime and kinda got under the skin of some of the top people and ebay where they were.

Thank you yes so this is really cool. Because anyone who's listening to the podcast understands cove in nineteen the pandemic and many of the health implications that we've seen come from it. How important is early detection in solving a pandemic Well devon. I think that most epidemologists have told as it's an essential part of our toolbox for doing with the spread of a pandemic and especially early on in a pandemic and throughout epidemic that still raging the one that we have right now. You really need to understand where the the virus spreading and quickly it spreading so that you can implement a measures to kind of tamp down that spread such as a social measures as well as technical technology measures such as vaccines Things of that sort. So surveillance is key in Trying to prevent the virus from spreading in so currently were doing tests of this kind of surveillance but how is that being done right now and is that really enough shirts so right now there's two main ways of doing testing for individuals. One is the gold standard and that is something called. Pcr so a pr tests or rtp. Cr test basically takes the virus from an individual sample such as you know nasal swab that we've seen People get and what it does. Amplifies up that genomic signature of the virus. So you're actually looking at the viral genome and you're amplifying it up so that you can test it. Unfortunately this again. This is the gold standard but unfortunately required a laboratory. So you need a you need a technician And it it's it. It takes quite some time for that sample to go to the laboratory laboratory to process the samples and then information back out
Bucks Win Game 5 to Take a 3-2 Series Lead
"The bucks one twenty three one. Nineteen game five win on the road over the sons to pick up three two series lead kyle at felt like at one point it was going to be a big sons blowout. Sixteen point lead in the first quarter. It feels like at one point. It's going to be a huge fox blow out and then it gets tied at the end it. We got a really good game down the stretch. That was fun to watch man. I loved it incredible game. I mean a lot of fortitude on both sides to not go away and to come back with your like you said. We had a of lead shifts and changes. The bucks fought back from that big deficit early. We big shots. We had big miss shots. It was it was sort of a shakespearean play there towards the end it. It's amazing if that went ahead ended with like a game winner. Something that would have gone down as a pretty memorable finals game. Not that it won't anyway. But yet really entertaining drama heck of a heck of a gutsy performance by milwaukee no doubt about it and we have to start at that lachie side which holiday twenty seven points thirteen assists only two turnovers at three steals. He had two of this. Deals are going to stick in my mind for a long time. And the third quarter. He had the on. Ball steel against devon booker then took a poll up three and transition in the final minute of the game helping off ball on a drive by devon booker strips. The ball janas runs the floor and he throws the alleyoop to him for the dunk holiday. Both ends of the court all those. Eric bledsoe comparisons from games one and two feel like such a distant memory. Kyle holiday was extraordinary tonight. I mean what freaking performance at both ends big balls there. That's the only thing that comes. I mean those plays that. He made that one three that he took after he destroyed up rip booker. I was just stunned. That he had the stones to take that and he nailed it. Yeah and then the the presence of mind you know. The refs aren't going to necessarily call a foul like that. Every time in a situation like that i mean he kinda force them to make a call He he got a little bit of risk a little bit of hand on that swipe down when he came over weakside to steal that from booker but yeah when he when he threw that lob to janas. I almost thought he threw it over. The cylinder again almost threw it into the cylinder and when he did that stood up. Stood up in my office. I just couldn't believe
"devon" Discussed on This Is Why You're Single
"Our topic of the week. This week's topic is surviving postpartum. So i remember the first time i brought up having someone help us after having a baby next thought i was nuts. He's like we're having a baby. We're gonna take care of the baby. What do you mean we're gonna like. Have somebody like sleeping over taking care of her baby. And then your be. Your brain feels like it's decaying and we hired somebody three weeks later for for rilo This time i knew immediately that students who got out of the hospital. I needed help. I was having surgery. I was like a i don't want to go through. You talked earlier about the anxiety. That was what i had. I had very bad postpartum anxiety So yeah i'm curious to know. We talked a bit before. But why do people need so much. Help surviving post-partum and for people that can't afford services like yours Because i i recognize that. You know affording my goddess sarah's very privileged thing. I'm curious what what can people do to help their friends help. Their family member survived postpartum. And like do things that a service like yours does that add Yeah yes so. I think a lot of us in the industry obviously really recognize that it is a privilege to be able to have this level of help and we're also trying to change things from the inside out by teaching people how to be better supportive friends and family members and things like that and i think a big part of the reason people need so much help as i mentioned earlier when my mom said like my grandmother came over every day we lived in the same town. She was over every day. Like you know taking care of is taking me out when my sister was born like taking me for overnight slake whatever You know my mom said she's like whether i went to her. She came to me. The first thing she would say is like go down and take an app. Give me the baby down and take a nap. So we don't have that family and community close by and i'm not even talking about like prehistoric times when everybody lived in caves together or even you know tribal cultures that all live on top of each other and live together and support each other. I'm just talking about even you know. Thirty forty fifty years ago when you just had family closer by and you know. People are having babies now in their older. So maybe your parents. Are you know not physically capable of of helping. Or maybe they've they've passed or whatever so it's just not the same thing as you know the average age of a first time mom being like twenty two years old having her forty something mom to help her. Now you're becoming a mom for the first time at thirty or forty something so it's just such a different It's just such a different dynamic and also like we're not like in in our culture particularly we're not around babies the number of glance i work with who've never seen a newborn or held a baby. You're touched a baby. Who any idea what to do like they. This is all just brand new to them like they say. I can't believe they let me leave the hospital. You're saying about your friends So we're we're very disconnected. I think from the process in a way that it didn't used to be the case. Like maybe or your mom would have kids after you and you would help take care of them or you're you you're the youngest but your oldest sister was having kids and then you were the auntie to them and like i think we're just lacking that experience in that awareness of what goes into any of it and i think there was a definitely a period where people did not know that help and support was even available so i really love that. The industry is growing so much not just obviously for my benefit before the benefit of the families that we all are serving and that just having that level of help is is so important. I also think a lot about how even people who have family around or friends or take nudity. They're not necessarily always getting the help that they need. They're getting the help that people wanna give of totally like my when i was born. My mom lived with my grandma and she was around a lot but my mom sometimes hide from her with me. 'cause she like you're helping go away so as somebody who has a lot of friends that are having babies. I'm curious like what do you think is the most helpful thing you can do for somebody that is that. Yeah that's a great question so First of all. I just have to say that my best friend said once she described my job so perfectly she said it's like having your mother and your sister there but without having your mother and her sister their baggage drama noah. Oh yeah you're a clean slate. I think the best thing you can do. Well there's two things number one is just listen just like if somebody's asking for advice give them advice but a lot of the time they just want to share how they're feeling they just want to say what they're thinking. They just want to just be like a good listener. Don't be like oh my gosh like what do you mean you. Don't love your baby immediately. The second it's born like how could you like quick. Call the police like you know. Just be a good listener. Validate how they're feeling on. Don't feel like you have to jump in with like well with my baby. It was like this or whatever and obviously that's a different experience when you don't have your own but just just ask how they're doing and then be generally genuinely interested in what they're saying and then from a more practical standpoint food and laundry come over bring food. Don't ask them what they want. I mean if they'll tell you what they want great but if they say we're good still bring them something yes. Ring it over if they say no. We don't need any help. Start helping any way like unload the dishwasher. Like dude ish. Like i'm not gonna say the laundry like anything. That is all great advice. 'cause like as somebody that just had a baby. I'm not going to be like. Do you want your premier casserole. Like i'd be like how i order on seamless. But like if you brought me a casserole like thank you. I will eat that casserole. You know like. I like like devon's just bring it and then one thing is like when you do come over like they'll be like oh. Do you want anything to drink. But like be like no no i will get it like like be like get hansie in someone else's kitchen in a way you maybe like one normally feel comfortable doing and just like get yourself that water and also like i had friends people come over and they just like left their cups of air. I'm like right now. I'm like have a baby in one hand. I'm like taking your like dirty dishes and like cups that you left on my take. Now i gotta put that away like put like like. Don't be the guest in their house. I guess like. I like our like. It's your house and just started shit and putting shed away and like and like pretended to your house and you're cleaning up the house and like getting water for yuna water for them and like.
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

He's like you're try these out. And we had a native provincials. It's called big alberta tournament native communities i was pre novice and you know he strapped the pads on me.

"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? <unk> Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual <unk> itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

Do you settle on one person or one family or a group of people.

We kind of distract from what's going on so recently after it happened after it happened book nine just came out and for those who don't know about your series described what it's about it's the programmatic science fiction which fails oddly like Like a premonition the moment in a not in a good way it's based in the UK it follows the immediate aftermath of a viral pandemic with a very high fatality rate. And while I use the they empty world scenario full as as the backdrop it follows a reluctant main character reluctant hero and the people he finds and it's more of a m more story about how they evolve to survive the reality. Do you settle on one person or one family or a group of people. It's all centered around the main character. The the main character being very flawed is kind of trifecta of two characters and the gods dog. The dog's GonNa be the most likeable character for most people. Yeah eight follows if all this one group and how I group grows moves how they adopted evolve and of see the the negative so they have to encounter the mice planet of the Papal Arabic. Coming in everything that's thrown out them and their unique style. What is it about this type? You know the apocalypse or a pandemic since we're kind of living through one right now but what is it that interest you as a writer might on US loans for this feels a bits callous now but In some in some sense people liked the idea of the post-apocalyptic because it's a challenge to re imagine yourself and be more you want to be a an and fallen into La 'em down the rabbit hole of the fiction People went to imagine themselves role. They play what skills they bring buried. Eight more of a almost a rebirth with their with post-apocalyptic definitely kind of going through that now in real life we're at the end of this life won't be the same after it's all over. We're going to be living in a new reality really now absolutely so many things Are going to change mean. I'm knuckle under former place of star Annette on blissful years ago an I come upon begin to imagine the distress be under Still and go out and deal with what's happening and what's going to happen because we haven't seen to peak Bahia by by a long shot the it is GonNa Change Insert many small ways to be Changing movie talking about this forever. Even things like the father are this. They're going to be companies that have been around and trade in my whole life going to be there anymore Seventy people who go to work. Are there companies going to realize that? Hey we don't. We don't need a big office. When he attempted people in Abby fifty other people were from Ireland be remote and he's going to have some very far reaching consequences for just daily life. What is it about science fiction that you want to kind of play in the sand mud? It's the rules with science fiction. When I've I've written across different sub genres in science fiction ever the at twenty five books in in different will else a ransom. Hard science fiction based on this happens now railroad is tomorrow and stuff set thousand years in the future in any completely made up universe. Mu- like about science fiction is there. You're not limited to what you have to rise about you. Limited by the roles necessarily early. And if something doesn't exist a crappy story you can create it Spent a spend days creating a SAS Bible. Where you y'all ruse history. The anti-bok story of Ray writes in Even down to the fine points of individual tastes to Elma J That you can just go create limited only by much nation. Well recently your expansion. Your books. One through five are available on kindle. That was February. What's at like? I've asked us for many authors to to be able to literally have kindle all five books rather than carrying around off five bucks people love a box set and I'm not talking about just the value for money side of it having to wait full of next book into series can be frustrating. People get distracted. Got Something else I I like. The idea of of putting out a box adversaries said of people can just that she smashed a whole night.

"devon" Discussed on Dog Save The People
"About how dogs make our lives better. My name is John Bartlett Bartlett in. I'm your host Devon up is the executive director at the Humane Society of Imperial County trying to save one one dog at a time and a rural California community along the US. Mexico border region being an economically disadvantaged area along the border region has met dealing with limited limited resources overcoming language and cultural barriers and managing the ever increasing number of strays and medical emergencies. Pets Devon Highest John. Thank you so much for joining us today. At dog saved people. Tell me a little bit about general your story about your own dogs. When I was seven seven years old? We got our first dog his Tyson and he was a rottweiler and I wanted a brother or sister for years and he definitely filled that space. Sure was my brother. We grew up together. There was pictures of me and him every year until I was maybe like fourteen or fifteen dollars I love it. That would be so great to you. See all the different mixtures of your growing up in him growing up and growing old and he was always there for me when I remember when I was sad because there was neighbor kids that would pick on the OS bullied ally like in elementary school. Middle School High School. I didn't have a lot of people turn to and I didn't have anybody to to really help me go through. I was going through so during a really dark time in my life when I reached out for help instead of a hand I gotta Pau Animals Love. You unconditionally. Love you for who you are the except you wholeheartedly wholeheartedly in. They don't judge people based on. You know physical appearances or anything like that. Yeah I knew. Tyson wasn't just like a pet or he was just something that was there in the housing and knew that he was a living sentient being in that he he felt he loved and he felt the same way that our family felt about him. Dan I understand and yes. I think that dogs animals in general but they see us for who we really are. I believe in they. They're certainly not impressed with us or looking at it sideways. Because we don't look a certain way and I think that that's a beautiful story and I wish that more kids could grow up with animals in in their homes because there is something very special that I think that we learn. I believe that did kind of help mold me kind of steered me in the direction. That wife has taken me. I just remember from very very very young age that I knew that I wanted to work with animals. I wanted to help animals and ultimately my goal was to be a veterinarian. Once they started working at the shelter I remember that very first day I was thinking nineteen years old and yeah I remember thinking to myself being the shelter helping animals in the way that it was helping them does what my mission was that I was put here to do from where I was is a Kennel attendant to becoming executive director at the age of Twenty Six. It's been a life altering experience and for the better. It helped me personally find out who I am and what I want in life what I want for the animals in my community of Slough. That's beautiful good for you. I mean that's an amazing thing and it's an amazing thing to know at such a young age because I think we typically we struggle for a long time to figure out what we're why we're here and what are passionate is and so much of our passions become very self involved in this is the ultimate and selflessness. I really applaud you. They say that dogs are man's best friend. There's a reason behind that and I believe that the majority of the people that have pets. I want to believe that. They love their pets and they want them to be like a part of the family but I think that there are people out there that you know financially or whatever life's struggles angles are for them. They can't do lavish things like some other people can do. And we've got these animals coming into the shelter right now. It's that time of the year. It's very stressful on by staff and it's stressful on me being that we're a tiny little shelter very limited on space very limited on resources in on staff. I don't understand why there's so how many people like right before the holidays right before July. Right before Thanksgiving right before Christmas. We have this huge influx of owner surrenders and I was really young Enticing had gotten sick and I don't even remember what it was that he had gotten sick with but I remember. My Mom and dad did everything that they possibly could to save his life and we didn't have a lot of money growing up and so you know the fact that my parents went above and beyond to do they needed to due for Tyson to make him better to get him. Well I just I mean I think they instilled in me and made me realize you know that is what I want. Mike community eighty to realize that their pets are family in the needed to be loved and respected treated as such. That's great so rescuing can be a really tough business. And and what are some of the more positive stories that you've experienced with the dogs that you've had under your care. I was talking to a friend and she was telling me that you know if you look at the vets before like whenever you would go into the vet. There was nobody sitting in the lobby. You can walk in and see right away. You're in and out within a few minutes. She said. Now you go. You cannot just walk in. You have to have an appointment issues so you know the picture that you're trying to paint for the community you and your staff and your volunteers organization organization as a whole has reached people in people. They've heard you know the message that were trying to portray in that you know. People are caring for their pets heads more than there are people who aren't and that meant a lot to me because that was like the Little Bit of light at the end of the tunnel right there were you were drowning in animals and it kind of put things in perspective for me. Yeah I had gone through a a major personal struggle. I had thought about leaving the shelter and at that time they had these three little dogs and it was fostering these three little I call them. My golden girls there was there was the the three give them they came in. Somebody turned the men. They couldn't take care of them. They were really really bad shape senior dogs and our shelter not really set up for senior pets so I took them home in. I fostered them every morning. When I'd wake up by I'd go downstairs and I'd go to let them outside to go potty and I just remember how happy they they were to see me and it just every day they were the reason why I never left wonderful so with your work in the shelter? Is there any story that stands out to you any particular freedom ride or a person who adopted a dog where that dog really changed their life just the other day I was laying in bed. It was about ten thirty at night and received a message on facebook from someone had just adopted from us a few days prior. They had a dog for several years in the dog walk. Past in their family was very upset about the dogs passing. She had never seen her husband cry until the dog passed in knew her husband had been in this sort of depression for several several months because of the dogs passing. That dog was like a child to them and they decided that one they were ready to open their hearts in their homes to another animal. They came Adopted a puppy from us and you know in her message. She was just expressing her gratitude that she was very thankful that her husband and her children were smiling and they were happy and she was happy she was thankful that our our staff was able to help her and her family not replace the pet that passed but to allow their hearts to To grow in into I guess extend that love to another animal and be able to help an animal and I sit in. It's things like this stories like this. It's moments it's like this. That helped me my staff and my volunteers in other shelter workers rescue people out there understand that amongst all of the the craziness that that goes on everyday in all the bad things that we see we hear happy endings. Actually heavily outweigh the negative while. That's beautiful how do you think dogs rescue us like we rescued them our pets or dogs. They do a very good job at pulling us out of you know some of the darkest places in making us I realize that everything is going to be okay and animals are like nature's natural antidepressant. Now that I think about it. pastic so Devon.
