Pandemic Machine Learning Pitfalls
"I'm dirk tricks. And i'm a phd student at the university of cambridge studying applied mathematics. Marie searches and optimization and machine learning so most of my day to day work is in developing new algorithms for image processing applications largely. I think a lot of image processing has been really taken up in the deep learning revolution. Is that the focus of your worker. You looking at broader things as well. Yes i do a lot of research in deep learning and so does the rest of our group and so the paper. I want to talk to you about today. Is titled common pitfalls and recommendations for using machine learning to detect and prognosticate for covid nineteen using chest radio graphs and scans. It's a mouthful but a great title and you've got a wide list of authors. I was wondering if you could just for some background. Steer a little bit about how this group came together and what the diversity of skill sets encompasses of course so even before the covid nineteen pandemic. Our group did a lot of research imaging and medical imaging and we had a lot of collaborators throughout the uk and also throughout europe and so when lockdown started to hit the uk in march because of covid nineteen. We as a group wanted to figure out how we could use our skills. Researchers to help clinicians during the pandemic and a lot of our collaborators felt the same and so a natural response was to get together and see how we could use research in machine learning and an imaging processing to develop systems that could help clinicians during this pandemic. that's where this collaboration came from. It's a very diverse collaboration consisting of clinicians and radiologists as well as mathematicians and computer scientists doing the model development side of things and. I think we've been really effective because of the diversity of our team.
Prosecution Rests, Cardiologist Says Police Killed George Floyd
"Today on day. Eleven just ten miles away. From where more jessica is now on day. Eleven of the trial of derek. Dirk for the murder of george floyd the rested its case after calling three more witnesses. George floyd younger brother described his memories of life with george something that minnesota law allows the victims families to do in murder trials. Defense did not ask any questions of george. Floyd brother cardiologists dr. Jonathan rich testified. That heart disease had nothing to do with the death of george. Floyd he said that. George floyd died because the police crushing his body against the pavement deprived him of oxygen. Toward floyd died from a pulmonary arrest. It was caused by low oxygen levels and those low oxygen levels were induced by the prone restraint and positional a six nations that he was subjected to. I believe that. Mr george floyd death was absolutely preventable where they're critical points in time doing during his subdural and restraint on the ground when you feel measures could have or should have been taken that would have preserved his life. Yes i do. I think there were several junctures. Actually would you tell us about those short. The i of course was to not subject to that initial that initial prone restraint positioning that he was subjected to. I mean that is first and foremost so if that was not the case i don't think he would have died.

The Death of George Floyd Murder Trial: Opening Statements
"We are in the middle of the big one minnesota vs derek chauvin. The man accused of murdering. George floyd and this is a case taken on a life of its own. We know the impact. That the death of george floyd has had will now. It's time to figure out what it all means. Inside a courtroom as our system of justice takes a look at it and a jury of twelve people will decide whether or not dirk chauvin murdered. George floyd and court tv of course giving you gavel to gavel coverage of this so in this podcast really wanted take a deep dive into the opening statements because opening statements are really the roadmap for the entire trial. This is where the attorneys for both sides will lay out what they believe. The evidence will show in the case and we got a few surprises during opening statements and got a feel and a flavor for who the attorneys are. That will be trying. This case will be the voice for either side with me. Is court tv anchor. Michael i ala michael. I wanna start off. We're going to focus here on the prosecution but before we get to that i just want your overall take of both sides. The way i saw it was prosecutors came in they were polished. They were professional but not over the top in terms of passionate then. The defense came in and there wasn't quite as much polish. Not so many bells and whistles and even less passion. So what was your take of what you heard in those opening statements. I think i think you hit the nail on the head there vinnie. I think the prosecution came in very very prepared. They had a presentation a powerpoint presentation. That was extremely. Well done set out. The time line was very clear that they had a sense of where the defense was when go and they kicked off all the arguments they will go into make and made their own arguments putting into the mind of jurors the arguments that they were going to make. I thought they did a great job of what i call your ones things like He did not let up. He did not get up things like that. That will stay in the jurors minds as they continue throughout this case Excessive force is assault Things like that. That would give something. The jury can hang onto as the case

Biting the Lion
"Biting the lion. Once upon a time there was a mighty lion named hari. He stood taller than a man. His for was as gold as honey and his teeth were as white as milk. Each paul was bigger than a dinner plate and tipped with claws sharper than a steak knife. He moved so fast he could run down a cheetah and his jaws were so strong he could bite a boulder clean in half and that was on a bad day. I'm the biggest. I'm the baddest. I'm the king of beasts. He would roared anyone who got in his way he was always shouting at the other animals and anyone who dared to stand up to him would get swatted with a massive paw and sent rolling into the dirt. Finally after years of abuse. The other animals all got together to figure out a way to get hari. The lion to stop knocking them around. That lyon needs to be stopped. Said an antelope when all the animals had gathered. But what can we do. Honk the warthog. Yesterday he made me eat a dirt sandwich. I mean i like sandwiches generally but the dirk was a little dry would have been better as a mud sandwich. Nothing like a good mud sandwich. A specially when you get all the worms in their wriggling out a little gravel to mine too for some crunch sandwiches. Aside purred the tiger. We need to stand up to this bully. If we don't he'll just keep on bothering us for ever. He thinks he's so funny. Cackled a hyena. He grabbed my pond. Slapped my own face with it. He kept saying. Stop hitting yourself stopping yourself. I tried to stop but he was so strong. He said i must like it. If i'm laughing but i can't help it. That's just what i sound like. He said i was too small to even bother picking on buzzed and that he called me a big green noodle said the anaconda slithering out of some sticks debate off by tail added zebra. It wasn't much of a tail but it was all i had out of nowhere. The lion landed next to them. With a thump his claws were out and his eyes were flashing dangerously. Did i hear you nerds talking about me. Hari said you think you're better than the king of beasts. Just leave us alone said the antelope. Just leave us alone. The lion said back mocking. He pushed her shoulder and sent her tumbling into the dirt. I'm in charge here and don't you forget it. You shouldn't be so mean. The warthog said oh. I shouldn't the lion asked. Sounds like someone wants another dirt sandwich. Like to see you try ari. The warthog said backing up and shaking. His long tusks hari roared and prowled up the wardhaugh grunted and charged forward his sharp tusks low and deadly before he could get close though the lions swat it out with one hulking. Paw it caught the warthog across the rump. And he went rolling a mud ball into the bushes. Ha ha hari roared anyone else. Want to challenge the king of beasts. How about you stripes. He asked zebra care for a rematch. If you win a find new tail for ya. The zebra looked away but the anaconda slithered up your big. But i am longer she said i think it's time for a new king of beasts one who isn't such a big arrogant puffball arrogant snarled. Hurry you better. Tell me what that means right now. It means your vain and selfish. And you think you're the most important thing in the whole world. I don't think it i know it. Hari said looking one pond and slicking back his tawny main nod for long the anaconda said she began to call herself layer after layer of scaly green winding in a big circle around the lion. He spun in place watching for her diamond head. Her clever is and long forked tongue. That seemed to flicker the air with a sudden crack. The anaconda pulled herself tight her body. Like a not around hurry. The lion with a hiss. She began to squeeze good. Try hari grunted. But your just a big noodle. He opened his mouth and wrapped it around the anaconda with a roaring slurp he pulled the snake off of him and then spit him in a sopping. Wet pile so much for. The noodle king hari laughed. I'm the biggest. I'm the baddest. I'm the king of beasts. You may be the king purred tiger dangerously. But maybe it's time for a queen. She padded out to stand before the lion. She was nearly as big as him with blazing orange for and wicked curving teeth. I won't put up with your bullying anymore. Come on then. Hari said show me how. A queen fights with matching roars. The pair slammed together. This was the most fight they'd seen by far and it was quickly a rolling flashing a flailing gnashing tornado of for and teeth and claws. The other animals backed away as the two big cats battle each other spreading sweat and spit across the ground. When they finally crashed to a halt hari was the winner and the tiger sprawled at his feet.
Trump will not testify or provide any statement at impeachment trial, lawyer says
"Second impeachment trial Donald Trump starting next week, House Democrats Guess what. They sent a letter asking, asking Trump to testify under oath, and Trump said No. One of his lawyers from the first trial, Alan Dershowitz, told Fox that Trump was right to turn down the Democrats. If he hasn't been subpoenaed, and he doesn't believe that the Senate has jurisdiction over former president. He's right about that, and he believes they have no jurisdiction over a constitutionally protected speech, and he's right about that. He's right not to testify. Yeah. Dirk's was called the letter that Democrats sent to trump nothing more than showboating, but they're going to use it to smear
The GOAT Whisperer: The Man Who Lured Tom Brady To Tampa
"So greg first question. Where are you right now. I have met the media center for the super bowl which is in the tampa convention center. Kinda for all that around downtown tampa but is not quite busy here yet. So it's a little bit still kind of thought out. I'm sure in in forty eight hours. It'll be crazy here. Well greg sunday will be the first time that a super bowl is played in the home city of one of the two competing teams. What is the feeling in tampa right now. In the up to the game as you walk around drive around you feel a super bowl frenzy even in this pandemic couple days city is enjoying a run like it's never had. He had the stanley cup at world series in october. God and now. I think just making the boy. I would have been a big step for this team but see them win. Three road playoff games. And now be as you said in a super bowl in their own stadium. It's been a wild six months for tampa or to be sure we wanted to pick your brain a little bit about the guy who many people credit with building this bucks super bowl team. Gm jason light when he joined the bucks seven years ago. This team was more or less in disarray. How has he rebuilt it. I think he's done a very good job of drafting three touchdown. She'll back to this. First draft is fourteen. Taking mike evans been a pro bowl. Receiver has reset all the receiving records already. Big exclamation shows tied his own tampa bay record with his wealth reception for a touchdown this year. Tom brady just set the new fifteen two starting offensive linemen and their left tackle donovan smith and they're left guard alley pat and then really you look at the last three draft. That's defense has come. I think they have seven. Vincent starters that are from the last three drafts talent collectors. Were finding the right fifth buildings championship team. There's a veteran presence traded for jason pierre paul from the giants and hit on him and consumers thirty four and still a very high level the this is a good mix of young. It's really worth well. Even jason light was putting pieces into place. And you know sort of building the backbone of this team. This team wasn't doing particularly well and nfl. Owners of course are not known for their patients. So why did. The buccaneers stick with light. Even as this team continued to miss the playoffs year after year after year you go back to the end two thousand eighteen and then made the decision to fire dirk cutter coach dirk cutter. He is now officially relieved of his duties by the team. And in this statement. The buccaneers say that gm jason light will lead the new search. So that means light will get. I think in most situations they probably would have moved on from jason light his gm as well. He did really well in that he kind of pulled out an important card. And was there gateway to getting bruce arians. I gotta say jason's main reason. I came back in coaching and i knew how good of an evaluator was having worked with him. And we say we share the same vision workers in arizona in twenty thirteen adding when it came time for the bucks to be looking for a head coach. He kind of got them. In with bruce arians gave the bucks somebody that he knew and trusted. Having a head coach bruce. And the relationship that i have with him is it. I don't know if we'll ever be repeated. He's just such a unique guy. We have such a unique strong bond. That we we get along well. We even argue
Who will be Seattle's next mayor?
"Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin's is the city has further delayed the search for a new police chief. We get the report from Cuomo's Patrick Quinn. There's no search planned at this moment in time. Adrian DS took over for Carmen best after she suddenly retired amid the de funding budget battle plan was to hire a new police chief after the budget cycle and in the new year Now the mayor tells me they could wait until potentially After she leaves office. I'm continuing to have conversations with the City Council on that. I think that everyone's evaluation right now is the chief search would not be successful. On gets an important of thing, and we are. It is such a critical juncture with our police department. We want to make sure that when we do it, we do it right and we do it successfully. Durkin's last day as mayor is December 31st who will replace her. The list is growing. Do you think the next mayor could come from City Hall? I think that voters will make a very different calculation in this election than before. I think that bumper stickers and slogans are not going to cut it, Dirk and said one focusing on the future. Many voters may look to the past, searching for answers to lingering questions. Seattle labored through this summer, and they're gonna want concrete answers on things like Will you cut the police by 50%? Will you make sure there's more mental health care providers? What are you going to do about the crime rates? Because when people come out of covert It's
Feb 3, 1971: Frank Serpico Is Shot
"On february third. Nineteen seventy-one nypd. Detective frank serpico was shot in the face during a drug bust when franks partners refuse to help him. He was shot in the face. Many wondered if the nypd headset. Frank up my guest hosts ashen. Elena are going to take over from here to discuss the circumstances that resulted in frank. Serpico shooting and what happened when he survived. Thanks vanessa frank. Serpico always wanted to be a cop for him. It was never about the power or the possibility of seeing his name in the papers. Frank serpico merely wanted to make new york city place. Unfortunately when frank joined the nypd. In september of nineteen fifty-nine the department was experiencing rampant corruption as a kid. Frank witnessed firsthand. How a cop could abuse his authority while working in his father's shop an officer came in. First you shine when frank finished the officer got up and left without paying. Frank was stunned but assumed the officer was an outlier. Just a bad apple. He got a rude awakening. Once he became a patrolman himself years later when frank was still a police cadet he and his partner arrested. A couple of suspects while protecting vandalized synagogue. They thought the nature of the arrest should have led to some kind of award but the precinct clerk only agreed to make a note for a citation if franken his partner slipped them a few bucks. Frank realized that bribery was the key to success in the department but he refused to accept that instead he would stay honest and work his way to the top by doing good police. Work throughout the nineteen sixties. Frank didn't partake in any of the graphs are corruption. He knew his partners might take payoffs but he wouldn't. Naturally this made cops suspicious of him and it didn't help that. Frank looked nothing like a cop as a plainclothes officer. Frank didn't have to adhere to a standard dress code so he decided to look like his personality. He was bohemian long hair. Long beard psychedelic clothes. Frank lived in greenwich village and hung out with the counterculture. He was the complete antithesis of the nypd. Finally in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven alongside only ally. Detective david dirk. Frank started making noise to the departments higher ups and authorities at city hall for three years. They brought credible evidence of police corruption. And yet nothing was done. Fed up franken. david did the unimaginable. They went to the press in the middle of one thousand nine hundred seventy the new york times published an expose on corruption in the nypd. The report tarnished the nypd and led to the nap commissions formation. An official investigation into police corruption. All thanks to frank serpico in the department nuit frank coming forward. Put an even bigger target on his back by the end of nineteen seventy. He was transferred to narcotics where he was a total pariah. Frank serpico was shot in the face on february third nineteen seventy-one during what was supposed to be a routine drug bust however his partners refused to help him and let him bleed out in the hallway. He only lived because an elderly tenant called the paramedics. Frank miraculously survived though. He was left with bullet fragments in his skull and permanent hearing loss and despite the attempt on his life frank refused to remain silent later that year. He testified before the knapp commission making him one of the most important officers to testify against the police. A year later frank retired from the nypd and lived in europe until one thousand nine hundred eighty since then. He's continued to speak out against corruption and police brutality. He's still holds out. Hope that there will be fair and honest cops. Patrolling our streets.
Hisham Matar Reads Colm Tibn
"Heike sean lowe deborah so the last time that we were doing this together we talked about shakespeare's memory by bore. His one minus one is a very different story a very different kind of story. What draws you to it. Well story. I love but it's also. I wanted to choose a story that i had read in the magazine and remember vividly the the encounter with us and it just affected me very very deeply and a for how simple it is. It is in very subtle ways. It's about such complex things. And i think for that reason over the years since i read it occasionally fought back on it and found more and more layers than us with the stories about a man from ireland living in the us who returns home As his mother is dying. And you've also written in fiction and nonfiction about exile about the loss of a parent about estrangement. There's something in the subject matter that speaks to you or is it more in the writing. Come tobin does that very well in his work at something that he manages to open up. That's space of ruthlessness that has touched very very much. So i'm sure. I'm sure there's a connection. I also have a very slightly embarrassing our relationship to ireland and to irish literature that i think has made me susceptible to us. Don't be embarrassed embarrassing. Because when i was seventeen years old i had come under the influence of all these great irish writers felt so drunk by their brilliance beckett's and enjoys keats and and i thought this is got to be a magical place having never been to ireland knowing nothing about ireland except those writers and i made a promise to myself seventy that where i go to ireland. Must kiss the ground. And i'm not fond of kissing the ground general for that reason to stay true to by seventeen year old self. I never went to ireland. I avoid until. I was shortlisted for a prize. My first book and the price was being judged by a writer that i admire took. Healy passed away a few years back and the mc for the prize was going to be calm toibin. So i thought. I can't miss that i must go and And it was magical but to negotiates kissing the ground. When i got off the airplane. I pretended as though i was betting tiber shoelace and kissed my finger and touch the ground. I thought that's a good compromise. But you know from that trip. Really a group of irish rises dirk mitch and roddy doyle and a few other writers of took me really embraced me and made me feel very welcome and i had such a natural connection and correspondence with them that has stretched for a long time to to this day. And i think it's got to be connected in part at least to some of the experiences that irish writers have gone through sadly whether it's censorship or exile and so they felt they felt very close to me an uber reading these irish writers. Seventeen year old. You were in egypt. I was in cairo My family had left libya but seven years before then and certainly for me. Then there were the most powerful reading experience. If you want to call it does in the english language. Partly because of what i was into but also i think because of what we're
When you need to figure out how to deal with water, go to the experts
"Justin. Aaron worth thinks a lot about where to put dirt. The dirt is gold to us. You put the dirt here versus here versus there. Aaron worth leads. The water institute a nonprofit research group based in baton rouge louisiana and one of the reasons he cares so much about dirt is that louisiana is losing a lot of it. Water is taking the state's land because of development sea level rise and extreme storms. Were losing football field of land every ninety two hundred minutes. We have major challenges Down here that means when aaron worth and his team happen upon a big mountain of dirt they use computer models to figure out where the water's coming next so they can use the dirt and trees and wetlands planted on top of it to mitigate future erosion read says the port. For sean at the southernmost tip of louisiana being dredged to accommodate larger ships that will displace tens of millions of cubic yards of dirt. So what we're doing is we're using these advanced numerical models to determine where should we put that material around front back to the port to get the biggest bang for the buck. The water institute uses a number of models to predict the flow of water including several that were developed in a country used to fighting the waves the netherlands so the oldest government bodies in in the netherlands are is not the government itself but it's waterboard waterboarding all the nation itself just to give you an idea of how long we've been dealing with this situation. Dirk on wall street works in coastal engineering for the dutch nonprofit. Del tarez more than a quarter of the netherlands is below sea level and the country is renowned for its anti-flood measures including dykes pumps dunes and algorithms remodel. Where the might. What am i go. Or how big the waves are and how they interact so they etc or Or a breakwater or something like that. What how rivers flow into the sea and predict and stuff like that from their the software might look at what will happen to the land from all that water flow as in louisiana or all kinds of potential scenarios that are valuable all over the world about a decade ago. Delta's decided to make its models free to use their sort of an open source baseline for people to use in all sorts of situations. Robert mccall is a senior researcher with dell tarez. What we have there in the code is just the rules by which the water should behave the people that location their most often running the models running simulations they can play what if games with the with the models that we provided and there are a lot of what ifs related to climate change which is already producing a lot of extreme weather flooding and events. We haven't seen in the past just last week. The biden announced plans to spend billions of dollars to protect against future disasters. Tech will certainly be a part of that
Seattle to cover mayor's legal costs from fighting recall
"Marriage any Durkin that she incurred while fighting a recall petition the state Supreme Court rejected this fall. Here's come on Frank Lindsay. The City Council voted 9 to 0 Monday to pay Durkin's expenses, which are estimated to be $240,000. Before the vote. City Council member Shama Sawant reiterated her differences with Durkin, including over the way Dirk and handled this year's protests. However, this vote is not taking a position on Mir darkens actions. It is about the right to legal representation, and we have to be very careful about the president. That being that has been set for working class elected representatives who simply could not afford large legal expenses, while corporate politicians could easily afford it. Earlier this year recall petitioners contended the mayor had violated an oath of office requiring her to maintain peace and order when police were allowed to use tear gas and other weapons during protests against police brutality and racism. Case cleared initial hurdles in King County Superior Court but was rebuffed by the state Supreme Court, which described the allegations as deeply troubling, but also said that they were insufficient for recall. Frank Lindsay come,
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan won't run for reelection
"Seattle Mer Jenny Dirk has announced he will not run for re election, the latest from Cuomo's Jeff Pooja alone in a term beleaguered by protests, violence and the covert 19 pandemic. Working so much of the sport she had when she was first elected slip away. Efforts were launched to have her recall, though none fully materialized, And today she announced that she will not be running again. I could spend the next year campaigning to keep this job or focus all my energy on doing the job. There was only one right choice for our city, doing the job that from a video she posted online. This creates an open seat that is likely to draw on numerous candidates and 2021. Also further speculation that Durkin may join the Biden administration. She, of course served as the U. S attorney for Western Washington under President Obama. The Durkin says she has not been approached by the Biden transition team.
"dirk" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"Evan burchfield oh our you. I think we're very similar today. He w It's just another day. Being falcons fan bernie much unfortunately yes and in today's podcast. We are recapping falcons unfortunate loss to the new orleans saints. Twenty one to sixteen this game was in. Atlanta falcons had the opportunity to go against tastes hill yet again and boy. Did they squander it. I mean that's that may be an understatement actually this was a painful game. I would say for the first. Three and a half quarters i would. Argue the falcons defense played well for most of the game. They obviously gave up three touchdowns. But i think their overall play with solid. This was about the offense and it was about dirk cutter and it was about You know matt ryan ryan was off throughout the game until really until the fourth quarter In this is also about One of the worst. Ceres of play calls i've ever seen in my life In a game winning drive potential game winning. Drive for the falcons. And we're going to talk about all that but before we do. Let's talk about the injuries. Coming in. The falcons did come in with some relatively good health. Todd gurley was back. Julio was back the only player started that was out with james carpenter who got injured in last game. So tell us a little bit about the players that made it for the falcons in the guys who are inactive as well as the saints. Yes.

What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like
"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas.

What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like
"In a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats were hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process. You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan bases than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Texas Toe Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state legislatures, with Matt making power, and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven. But Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree and how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process.

"Two, thousand, thirteen, two, thousand, fourteen. It's like Oh my God stop running the freaking screens. So it a lot of burnt out from those re I think now that the tight end. Tight end screen is is probably the one for us I think we saw it actually on Sunday. And nothing again like, yes two yards so. I don't think that being generous. I think there's actually a loss of two yards, oh? Oh Yeah. I think you're right so Usually, what it's getting a loss of two yards. That's why it's so frustrating and. We talk about this and it's like it's not that screens or bad. It's just when you do like. Some teams really good screens. The chiefs are amazing. Screen passes and they're very creative with their screen passes and you see it all the time where you know it's not. This is the core issue with their cutter. It's not that like the things that he's doing is inherently wrong like right and do a lot of the things that he likes to do and do it very well. It's just he doesn't do them. Well, you know. You just kind of stuck with like complaining about things like I hate screen passes and you shouldn't hate anybody's Falcon Fan has watched other teams completely annihilate the Falcons on screenplays over the last. I don't know twenty years it seems like and it's one of those things where it's like, why can't the Falcons do that and I think a lot of it is Kinda owed to design that you know the sort of flawed inherent flaws dirt cutters offense. And, and that's one of the reasons why have you on because I, think there is to your point. The plays in and of themselves are not the problem screens or not the problem running on second and long is not the problem these. You know there are other teams that do this with a tremendous amount of success. It just seems like when Dirk does it it becomes maybe predictable or the offer. The defense sees it better than they do with the more creative offenses. But before we go to that point, I do want to talk about obviously after two thousand fourteen. Technically. Dirk. Was not fired. He was I. Think they said he was allowed to leave to pursue the. Offensive Coordinator Position Than Tampa, which is probably there were just being kind about the the those mechanics I think people were ready for everyone to get fired for the actual pink slip to come in but So he went on to Tampa the Falcons instead of retaining internal staff They went to call Shanahan with when Dan Quinn came in we all know the two years he was here the the amount of success they had but then after Shanahan left So the two thousand, seventeen season we brought in Steve circes him. Skip over Shanahan because we all know what that offense was like. We don't have to recap. But I want to get the circadian because I feel like the two years he was here. Are often either misunderstood or not seen. Maybe. One hundred percent correctly. So when you think back of two, thousand, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen in what Sarkozy and did. What are your thoughts in general because I I saw something i. think it was this weekend where they said it showed by pf take that for what you will. It's just one of the metrics out there but they ranked the. Seventh and In the two years that circadian was offensive coordinator, which I was a little surprised by but then. It got me thinking maybe maybe they weren't as bad as good as some people thought what? What's your take on circadian. Yeah I was actually having this discussion tonight with someone who was very much in the boat of we definitely were right in firing Steve Sarkissian off when he eighteen season and I was basically like I was on board with that because I think there were some definite flaws and starts offense that continually got exposed particularly in seasons when the Falcons were placed facing teams like I. Don't know Philadelphia or or whatever. The case may be right and so I was ready to move on but I think the thing with Sark particularly in the first year he was here a lot of it. Was Him trying to do Shanahan things but not really understanding how to do Shanahan things, which is similar to kind of what we've experienced jerk the last couple of years. The. Falcons offense overall was efficient struggled in the red zone they. So they didn't score as many points as they probably should have given how many opportunities were able to move the ball down the field. They struggled generating explosive plays, which was a regular feature of the Shanahan style offense and they really part of that is to Matt Ryan missing a lot of deep throws early in the season. And then a lot of that was just basically because didn't do a great job designing explosive plays a lot of their big place that they were able to get were mostly just like, oh, throw the ball like I think was the rams game where they through that screen Muhammad's new and he like broke a tackle and ran fifty. It was just kind of like, Oh, just go out there and make a play similar to what we're talking about what their offense where it was just like, Hey, go out there and get open but then I think in two thousand, eighteen, the transition was that the falcons passing game made major strides in. Large part due to the emergence of a player like Calvin Ridley and going back to the point I made earlier where they were able to find someone else who could make plays outside of Julio Jones, which was too often an issue in two thousand seventeen where Bahamas new was productive that but he was not a playmaker. Taylor Gabriel was basically an afterthought that season a lot of those passes to that Matt Ryan had were targeted to Taylor Gabriel and you know I think Matt Ryan went over eight, and then basically after week ten a week eleven just basically stopped during the Taylor Gabriel altogether and you know in two thousand eighteen. SARK's offense started to do the things that you wanted to save from a quote unquote. Shanahan style offense, and that worked for most of the season, you know obviously their often Kinda.

They don't say, oh, but it was because he ran up into Michael Jordan right Zane, the Stockton Malone or Barkley. They don't give them the all. But you went up against an all time. Great dispensation that since the rockets have been contenders. The last five years this is the fourth time they've had to play Golden State in the playoffs. Right. So there's an element of men if not for Golden State, and nobody would members. Nobody nobody remembers that what they do. Remember is exactly what Chris talking about hardens regular season, accomplishments are absolutely you can put them. I'd I with anyone that's not one of the ten greatest players ever. You can put them either. I with kobes and Kobe is one of the ten greatest players ever. But Koby got five titles and went to seven finals hard brindell fines, and by the way. People think Kobe Kobe is a greater career than James. And the point I'm making his Kobe won MVP had some close finishes hardens when one in VP the co he's got scoring titles. Hardens got to scoring title. And if people don't for mid forget like like as you. He did go is okay. See is the sixth man, but people won't even give him credit harassed. I should say that you're you know, what I'm saying? It's been doing NBA finals, but not as the leading actor not as the best supporting actor on his own team. And so yes, this is the one thing that's missing. And Dirk is the right name in my mind to bring up because Dirk was the story of Dirk was an amazing regular season performer falls flat in the playoffs. Didn't matter. He had taken a team to the NBA finals, they lost Dwayne Wade and shack. Yup. In the NBA finals, then he wins league MVP. They went sixty sixty seven sixty five games, and they lose in the first round they lose in the first round three of four years after going to the NBA finals, and they want to champion. And now Dirk is on any legitimate top twenty all time list. He's the best foreign player not named Kim allies one. He changed the way we look at European basketball players look at the Sindal fee had this year with one championship mirrored with away who has three championships that championship does me and the other and I'm gonna go back in history because people right now remember Chuck in Ewing in Stockton Malone funny. But a lot of that's because people watched once people start this is wants people that watched or new use start dying or start aging out of the discussion. Your legacy gets forgotten unless it is written in stone. That is what has happened to Elgin Baylor. Elgin Baylor's remembered for being a terrible general manager more. So than one of the greatest players ever doesn't matter average thirty eight thirty eight points a game one season doesn't matter. How brilliant he was fiving his to this day. The most. Underrated player ever, you know, why never got that. Ring never got that championship. So he's not on anybody's all time greatest list. Even though he should people will that watched hard and will always remember. But when you about generational lasting impact. You know, what he needs. He needs a title. And it's the only thing he needs. Because once if he gets the title, then the only criticism of is at style. Well, would say miss me with that that doesn't matter. That's a problem. And so, yeah, I I don't know if it's fair. But of course, an enormous part of his legacy is on the line this series to get through the Golden State Warriors and then finished off with a championship.

And just took this funny photo with them. And that's the type of stuff that like there's not another superstar who does stuff like that. And and I think that's why you saw so. So many people coming out of the woodwork to just talk about how awesome. This dude was. And it was cool to see the love. He got everywhere. He went regardless of whether he wanted her or not see what happens when you don't. Just reflexively argue with manual actually, go along with the show for once. We had this beautiful tribute to NBA legend who actually deserves it. Okay. We can get on with whatever it was that you wanna talk about whatever petty little business you had on your agenda. I'm glad we got the important stuff out of the way. Thank you for humoring, me and our guy. Kevin fong. Yes. Actually, I do have one other question here that just came to mind. If you could root for one superstar would you rather root for Dirk, Dwayne Wade, or Tim Duncan Tim Duncan come on? That's easy. That's easy. For me. It is how about you. Well, it's hard to choose between. Wade and Dirk because both their careers were really really cool and happened just about perfectly. I mean, even some of the stuff that didn't work out for dirt midway through his career made his eventual breakthrough that much sweeter. And I understand it's comparing five titles to one title with Duncan and Dirk. But I think I would maybe rather have rooted for over the last twenty years because I just can't think of a relationship with an athlete that would be more rewarding was was like a rohrschack test. I could see you as Dirk, man. I mean, the people like to make your your haircut, you got kind of a jerk haircut Durkee personality and at the same way. I think you could flip that around on me and say, yeah, this guy's boring like, Tim Duncan. He's thirty years past his prime thirty years before he should be. Yeah. It's it's tricky, you know. I don't I don't say that lightly because Tim Duncan is one of the ten best players of all time. But I can't imagine anything cooler than rooting for over the last twenty years. So Mavericks fans savor it Lucas still overrated, but Dirk is not overrated even a little bit. And with that, let's move on then to the meat of the podcast. I don't know.

That's what NFL players who. So not surprised at all that he had a little fracture in there when he got hit and went down. I thought it might have been more significant than than what it was. But that's par for the course in the NFL and his play is specially in the few weeks right after the injury. You could see it. He wouldn't get to one direction. He was not mobile at all. Even though that's been a huge part of his game. You I didn't know it was a fracture. I thought it was more likely ligament issue, maybe an MC L sprain.

I two superstar say goodbye to their fans last night twain way, Dirk Nowitzki, both playing their final home games of their career Nick who had the better career, Dirk or D. Wade. This is not the debate that I'll go to the mattresses on because it's incredibly close. Now, according to my officially unofficial rankings. Dirk is sixteenth all time D way eighteenth all time, but you could push your pull me either way. They both have very unique legacies. Dirk about the greatest European player ever D. Wade continuing the legacy of the great shooting guards from Michael to Kobe to D Wade leaving Jerry West because different era and now James harden. But they were always connected. See Wade's first championship came at Dirks expense. I championship came at D. Wade LeBron's expense. So to all time greats. Walking away Dirk as far as you rank him as a power forward. Right. So we're wondering as far as power fall. So that's going to be tougher. I think of my head I think he'd be fourth. But I don't have that in front of me right now. I don't. Might give the wing way to ED's because of the championships and because of his ranking per shooting guard. He's D Wade is the fourth graders shooting guard ever.

What does that mean to know the state of our devices, I think it's very simple. It's just to understand more about the realities of your assets. Think about ineffectually today if you want to understand whether a conveyor belt is stuck typically you have to be there and look at it. What if you knew this automatically in the dashboard, if you're at home and want to understand, whether you're nice little room robot is doing its job? You don't have to be in the room to understand. Whether it's actually doing is vacuuming. You can open nap. It's just very simple examples off if you have the meaningfulness off getting. Information gathered in an application that you don't have to be physically present. Or you don't have to be an expert. And of course, you can think if you do this on a much broader scale, you can solve much more difficult problems. And they can talk about some of them you feel like definitely we'll get into that. But talking more broadly, what are the challenges of gathering this state data when we're talking about a conveyor belt or a light switch or a dishwasher, an electric guitar. What are the challenges of gathering the state? I think the first challenge is first of all, of course, to say do actually have a means to sense an information on a device, if you talk about a guitar guitar most likely it was never meant to just figure out in. What state it is? And then send us information meaningful over the internet, and then you have the connectivity problems. So that's the first challenges, and you could argue the advent of the internet of things came because now it is cheap and affordable for almost everybody to actually connect your devices. That was I'm always joking. I t. Sporran when you had come together from the internet revolution. But you created if you're like, the cloud and the powerful off of data centers, and what we call the mobile revolution. Where you had the advent of this very cheap little tiny, micro controllers connectivity. Modules that you connect everything. Because now it's a foldable that you can connect a light bulb or you can connect guitar because if you had to add additional.

"And obviously we have to still be Phoenix in the west coast finals who was complete different series in the Spurs. It was it was crazy up and down so much fun. That was near Lori was hurt. I believe for them. Right. That was that was the year. They had had a brutal playoff run that whole series. I think with Dr. Can't remember anymore. Our merged as a real a real player. He was real player. But that was that was like peak Boris Diaw sort of skinny almost skinny our and go there. Do you have do you have the two thousand seven MVP trophy? I do have a mom. How's it all I actually have the the twenty eleven finals wanna have at home, and my mom has the the old seven. Real won the regular season one. So yeah, my mom is says great. She always wanted to keep everything amid she saved every newspaper article from the last one years, and she's just super problem number one fan. And so when I actually I didn't carry it at twelve you'll so big. So we shipped it to her after after I got it and still standing right there for to look at every day. See I thought there was gonna be like you send it back to the league office or something 'cause there's a legend that I don't think is true that you through the Western Conference championship trophy in the trash can in twenty eleven 'cause you just you the championship was all that matter. But that never happened. That's like an urban. I didn't throw it in trust handed. Somebody basically said we got one of those already. That's not why we're here sort of the story was that. We won the Western Conference finals against or KC. And I did a an live interview for the TV with with doors Burke. I was done. And then we got the trophy and held it up and the fans of fired up, and then I walked off a walked off right after we got the trophy of walked to the back and walk to the locker room because figured that. Was it only later landed find out the doors looking for me. She wanted to interview me for the fans with obviously Irina your Rena. I didn't know that. I thought I already did my interview, and I was done otherwise, I would have stayed. I love doors lover work big fan. So I didn't mean no disrespect there at all. I thought the presentation was over I had the trophy with took the picture handed it to my teammates, and I had left. So then Doris is basically sat in there. I okay, here's third and she's looking for me, and I'm already gone was already in the locker room. So I felt really bad after and then the team, I guess followed me and. The presentation was over as well. But and so there was nobody to interview and that was ended up being a bad. Look, I think, but people were just not eating Cubans out there to take the interview nobody he's usually the first one in line to get. But I'm not sure if he was there for for that. And so I felt bad afterwards. I mean, it wasn't like I wanted to set an example like this. You know, we want to final trophy. It's no we want wanna if I would've known that. She was looking for me. I would have been there stay. So that was that was that was a bit bit embarrassing after you know, obviously respect how much work you have to put in just to get to the west coast finals so beat the Western Conference champs. It's not like a I threw a trophy away. But yeah, that's not what what we wanted that year. We wanted to hold thing and ended up working out. Well, you got it. And now here we are what did you turn forty one four four. Forty two summer forty one and you're still cranking away in the NBA championship. You've got your MVP you're going to be in the hall of fame. Whatever three years is after you retire. Do you just sorta sometimes sit back, especially when I was watching the Knicks game the other night in your plan. I mean, they are a baby team. I mean, like a team of babies, and it's like this dude is whoever it is. Whether it's Mitchell Robinson or could deem Allen is guarding Dirk Nowitzki on a switch like like, they're literally twenty years younger. Do it's the you invents. What you're doing is insane..

I think I'll have plenty opportunities and a few years to do some stuff. I'm gonna keep doing good stuff with with enough on Dacian and charity work and one in Germany. I have one here and obviously in the US in Dallas. So we're gonna keep doing stuff there. But some day to day stuff. I'm sure I'll find something whether go back with the mouths sure would love to have some capacity, but all that is if only for the scoreboard videos, if only for that the holiday one where you're the camel, but it's a game day is just an all time or that commercial is back on. Now, that's the actual hump day one with the camel gyco has cycled back on and every time. I see like do you train for that? You got the Campbell's mannerisms and his in like this the rhythm of his voiced their practice runs. I love that commercial that came out. So when they brought me that idea of me doing it. I was always all on board. But actually why he asked me a couple two or three years ago. She's like a you're not done being the clown. Now, it's it's been long enough. Like you've done this long enough can can Leong guys maybe take over a little bit. But you know, it's it's part of my personality. You know, I love having fun still. And but once I'm darla, I'm not gonna come back with some video. So I think it's it's time for other guys to take over their role. And I'm sure is great for it. He loves having fun off the court as well. He's he's he's he's a little crazy. So I think it's it's time for somebody else. Do it a couple more rapid fire ones? Dirk investing. I'm not gonna get hot. And what is the world not know about the experience of carrying your country's flag in the Olympics, which you got to do. The most amazing experience was so you're standing you give you the flag. First of all you wait in the back for like ours. I bet it's gotta be just actually in some other stadium and your way too. So we went in for the Chinese alphabet. So Germany it was actually not at the beginning. We almost dead last. So we were waiting literally for three four hours in that stadium. Just sitting there playing dumb game. So we hit each other. And then the next guy's because we were literally nothing to do. And so finally, we come down and you get through this tunnel. And in the tunnel gave you the flag as yeah. And picturing sitting there for four hours holding a big German flag. All you get it later later. You gotta later once once you go down closer to the stadium. So at some point, our, you know, our our federation is really large, and we had a few hundred people. So there was a moment where basically the whole tunnel was just. Germans. And I have the flag in the front. We're all I'm fired up. I'm looking forward to about to walk in. And then the entire federation starts singing Dirk show media flag, and and German German song, obviously. And I remember turning around and the whole the whole federation of singing it, and I'm just turning around. And I'm waving the flag on them. It's still gives me goosebumps. So that took his day even more than than the actual round does which was an incredibly honored to lead your nation out in in in the stadium. But that moment in the tunnel. I'll I'll never forget it it still gives me goosebumps. And yeah, it was the that was a credible experience. I'd forgotten about this until I started doing a little research for this. Tell people why you are number forty one. Yeah. So I was I was always fourteen actually. So I started my handball career when I was eleven my dad always had eleven then started when I started playing basketball took eleven because my dad and then ninety two actually Charles Barkley had fourteen in the Olympics and in Bursa Lona. So I love Charles, and he was a little crazy..

And I look up raising game. But it seemed I get fifty wasn't like crazy Chuck in at all times. He just he made everything through up when you run out them. Drove hit floaters got some layoffs and some back cuts and look up, and obviously hits all we always hits his threes. So he had he had fifty almost fifty. I'm and it was his incredible. What a what a score so much fun to watch. You won't say that your retirement. Maybe you don't do you not. I don't even how to phrase the question. I want you to say. You don't want the fanfare. That's my. Yeah. I kind of want to be low key about it. And. I just wanted to see how season went healthwise which hasn't been great. So I think that's going to help the decision sooner or later. But yeah, kinda wanted to see however goes like last year, for example, they already asked me almost play eighty games, the the body was okay, and it held up. And so I kinda wanted to see how this season went and talked to my family about it. And and then make the decision then. But yeah, I mean the way it's going now, obviously leaning towards it. But well, we'll see how the last thirty strange because everyone assumes it, including people around the Mavericks, and then you just read the tweets like Dirk has X amount of points in his last game at Madison Square like this is sort. He's actually not said this everyone is just assuming it. But it's the it's the only time I can remember where people are posting like last this in that like in Boston you there cheering for you to score the all time. What did you one more point two more points? To the all time. Visiting score visit score for Western Conference that lead it on one basket. And oh man that was so it was frustrating, man. I had two shots in the first half. They were pretty good. Looks didn't make one. So then there in the second half, we had a bad run missed a few wide open looks. And then at the end the whole Reno was we want to so he actually sought me back in like two minutes to go and a game was sort of over Boston that made her on and the game was kinda outta reach. So then every time they're feeding me the ball. I'm should have three. I had a post up at another mid range, and it just couldn't get anything going. But you know, the fans on it's so bad. And so I'm forcing shots, and they're not really good shot. It never great rhythm. So, but I wanted it really bad, and it just didn't happen. So over ten that night, you know, and it was super special reception there. How the, you know, the standing ovation, and I wanted I wanted it so bad to happen to make at least one basket, and it just couldn't happen. So I was I think afterwards I was I was super thrilled and something I'll never forget. But I was super frustrated like you couldn't make one out of ten shots. What are you doing the record? Kobe. Yeah. Kobe won one more point than me. So I just need a one one basket going check the schedule next year. And if like one of the first five games is at Boston. You can retire after game six if you really care that much. Yeah. I don't think I do that, you know. You know, honestly, if I decide to call it a day, I won't talk about for awhile. I'm gonna be drinking wine every night somewhere and having fun and join family life. And so that's not something you told me what is Dirk wanna do in five years. Five years. I don't know. But for for the near futures is getting away little bit. Enjoy my kids traveling the world with something which Ryan summer, but you always limited always gotta work out. Always gotta find Jim's. So.

"We had the back the back to backs. I was I was a little worried, and you know, as it wasn't a great year for me. But looking back now, it was actually a great to get get my feet wet. You know, come over and see their surrounded get used to everything and then come back for a full second year played some league that summer and it just had played summer league. It just doesn't seem plausible that they're convinced played summer league after his rookie year and then played again after my second year play to summer. That's not. Yeah. That happened. The MVP or did you did you graduate one game in the today's was still played in Long Beach and went to Utah. So it was like a whole month we were on the road. So I did that after my second year where I was always sort of established just because I missed performer rookie season, I missed that one. So they wanted me to play twice. And I said, it's fine. So I usually played all that summer through anyways up plate national team. And then I went right into summer league. So yeah, the first year going through it was was tough. I mean, there was games where it didn't play at all. Then no all the plays and defensive coverage is at times because there was just so much happening at once. But looking back now, I was an important year for me to just get you severed ING and set me up to to be good in the second year. And always tell the story. My second year was a little fortunate. We had we had a power Fortnum Gary Trent, and he played really well there for force in my rookie year come into my second year towards hamstring. So he was going to be out my entire second year. And Nellie is like, okay. We don't really think you can guard any power forts. So I think you'll be great a powerful I played some some small for my rookie season. We actually started bigger, and they saw my future more as a small four because I was skinny and and so then we were really out of power for it. So Nellie, listen, if they post you up you just fight like crazy and get around and just front them when they the ball over. We sent Shawn Bradley over and let his length be. Actor and that's how we kind of got away with it. My my second and third year just being little, you know, not as physical being skinny and not here really haven't any post defense, which I'll just always got away with fronting everybody. I tried like when they cross half court. I was always trying to already fight him in front of. So they wouldn't have to post me up. So that's how we made a work on the defensive end. And obviously work great on offense that was able to to to to pull someone else. Fours oughta way from the basket. And that's where that's where you know, the shooting four kind of thing was the worked. So speaking of sort of tough early days, I was texting with Steve Nash about you know, what should I asked her? What are some of your memories of Dirk that are not R rated? You know, what are some of what our memories I'll read you what he said one of the things he said he said ask him about the early days in Dallas at the Landry center. It was our practice court in a medical center. He and I would go twice a day shooting playing one on one and some horse..

"Andre was great for us this year, and in all your bathroom lose two first round picks, which is which is a lot nowadays for surrenders. It is hard to come by. But you know, where we got the players the deal, and we obviously love what president and and Luca can bring together. Hopefully, and it's gonna be a lot of fun from ask fans for for a long long time. Is it cool for you the symmetry of you're the greatest international player ever. And now, they're rebuilding around. These two other European guys who, you know, came with that kind of pedigree, probably idolize growing up is there's gotta be something cool about that. Right. Yeah. I mean, that's that's pretty sweet it shows how how far the game has gone gone and common. You know? There's I don't think there were a lot of the franchise in the national players back in the days, and you know, been a league now for two decades, and how has gone global, and you know, now player small over are in this world. This league. And and not all having our players, but have been franchise players some big impact players on their on their teams and their communities. And so it's been the last two decades have been been fun to watch. So I'll tell you what one of the things I thought about when the trait happen. You're right to first pictures a lot taken out some salary. I thought back to twenty eleven and and even before that if you look at what you guys have done in the last fifteen years to draft trade ally draft picks, a lot of didn't work workout free agency. We don't need to go in free agency. You got good players. You can get the ones that you wanted. It's almost like the Mavs look at the last fifteen years like draft in work fridge student work. We gotta go get a guy and just we'll figure out the wrestling with these picks. We don't use these picks. Anyway, cap space hasn't gotten us the eight plus guy that we wanted it. We're just reminded me of how that that the championship team was not brought back in the pain of that. If. You watch shark tank yet, by the way, you've Oude never to watch us. I was two minutes here. And there when I've never actually sat down in Washington tire Assode. But you're right. I think we've made some great trades over my over my tenure here over the last two decades, I agree with some of free agency and some of the draft. It's it's been a little hit and miss and a little unfortunate of times that things didn't work out. So, but I think Donna and Mark have shown great great record of of making big time traits that put us in position to win starting way back when you know, when we're huge blockbuster with with Washington Juwan Howard back in the days where we try to like eight or nine people. You guys had some really government. Excellent. We've we've got some some good stuff over over the years over over the last twenty years, and our trade record is pretty good. You know, speaking of Juwan Howard. You bout Ron Howard up big big mistake. I've been told to ask about going to John Howard's birthday party, which is apparently overall Sar could you share the story place? Well, you know, this is the young days of Dirk Naji Hugues all live in and up in the NBA. Yeah. Those those those days, you know, we basically had a lot of fun around the all star games..

So honestly, I wasn't really worried about L thought there's no way in heck this is going to go going to happen. And I guess talks were heating up a little bit earlier in that afternoon. And I was like there's still no way. So I took my nap didn't worry about it thought. There's just no zero chance to make a big blockbuster deal like that. And then actually set my lawn for about four four fifteen and I missed the whole thing by the time. I woke up I had a million texts and the deal was basically done. So. Yeah, I wasn't shocked at it actually happened like that. And and obviously that trade like that of that magnitude went to went through and so's. Yeah. Was obviously surprised but at MSG at Nick at Nixon was already rumblings there was rumblings. But I didn't take him serious.

Honestly, I do it honestly is hilarious to me. Listen if we had taken Dirk Nowitzki, how could we have ever gotten the flight brothers with Larry and Alan Iverson? But that's not part of my argument. Listen, that draft is appoints points me for so many other reasons. It's not even funny. You mentioned him. You already said it. You just gave out my argument, which is great. I love how you continuously take the bullets out of my gun. Akeem allies. One is has to be considered right up their neck and neck and just lit -tupid higher than Dirk Nowitzki taking out that that year that Akeem spend Toronto. When you look at his numbers, they're almost identical when you talk about points per game, and Keam was a all MBA defensive player twice five-time MBA all defensive. First team player, four time. All MBA. Defensive. Second team player, Dirk doesn't have those defensive statistics. He doesn't have the defensive of accolades when you talk about a complete player and considering someone is the best of all time, you're not gonna get somebody better than he keen. It's very, very tough to argue against. Dirk, has been one of the faces of the NBA for the last nineteen years going on twenty. I am addictive. It's fan self admitted, but nobody nobody can touch Keam. In this in this world, he transformed a big man game, Dirk did to by moving out to the three point line and I'll give him that. But when you talk about that post moves and the things that Akeem could do with the ball offensively along with bringing his defensive prowess out there, it's really hard to argue that anyone was better in as an international coming into the NBA look keeps footwork was incredible in the post moves. He had, we're sensational but not revolutionary. This is this is a skill that had been lost that Akeem brought back. If we go back to their earlier days of the NBA. This was invoke the big men of the day. Granted, they were six foot, seven, six foot eight, big men at that point, handle those post moves, and all of that you look at look at. Kevin McHale or anyone like that that existed player like Dirk. He didn't, you know, much like a team Dirksen start playing basketball seriously until he was fifteen which makes us accomplishments and unique skill set all the more impressive. The guy played in one thousand four hundred seventy one games in counting the guide logged fifty thousand five hundred seventy three minutes on the court and scored thirty one thousand one hundred eighty seven points with career averages of twenty one point two points per game.

If I was like always talking trash like that and that sort of like because you get competitive. Oh, but I would get competitive in the trash talking department. Yeah, yeah. But if it's your teammate, it's different because you, I mean, you're just having fun. I think it's good natured, whereas if you're gonna kill somebody else, then there might be a little truth in everybody kidding. So you know, Kevin Durant is kidding with CJ McCollum, but there's truth in there. Hey, you guys played like an eight seat, hey, you have no chance of winning champion. If you know you're not winning. Yeah, yeah. So print true. I think they have fun. I think his teammates have fun with Dirk Nowitzki the fact that they're calling him seven because LeBron's going to pass him on the all time scoring list. I mean, you're kidding with him, but you're still seventh on the all time scoring list of everybody who's ever played this game. You know, if you wanna give me grief like, hey. Mr. runner up for, you know, ten times in the sports EMMY. Okay. I'm all right with that. I'm runner up ten times to Bob Costas. He's telling him to go to YouTube. I. Awesome. Hey, you might want to go to YouTube and look at this dunk I had, and the fact that you have kids who are like Luca Danni chick was not born when you know, Dirk started playing. Probably born that year. Dennis Smith junior, they have no idea what Dirk did. They probably just look at the numbers and look at him. You know, barely getting up and down the floor. Yeah, point and with trash talk, I think it's who says it more than what said. Like when let's say we're down at the sports Emmys in Bob Costas that, hey, guys enjoy second place. You know, that's funny because we have a relationship up, but if someone we didn't know some big time announcer, let's say that Dan, you didn't know. We didn't know, hey, look at the guys that they patch enjoy second-place. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. We don't know you it. I think it'd be who says it not more than what's that. Yeah, if it's somebody that we don't like and then they say it that's different than if it's, you know, somebody that we have a relationship with. All right. So that's my darkness ski store. I don't know if I really held onto it, but every time I we talk about Dirk. I always say this orcas is in yes ball. You'll even some stuff out on this one because you were having a shooting contest at took quite a while. 'cause you and Avery weren't missing. And they were waiting to start their walk through and everyone's just kind of sitting there and the other half of the court. And then here comes of was it summer Sanders? Oh yeah. The inside stuff type stuff. So they got a camera crew and they're weight into a piece. And every time you every would hit a shot Dirk ago. Oh, come on, like not even under his over his come on, but I always think of die hard. When I think of Dirk because he's sort of got finish him off l. shoot the glass. Avery shoot gloss, shoot it off the gloss. Avery. Radio boy. And then I remember Avery Johnson hits a jumper from the corner and Nick Van Exo goes, start the bus. I think like like we're getting out. Let's go start the boss, you know, get the talk hairdo outta here and then I hit the shot as it's going in. And I said something like I said, something Nick Van Eck. So you know, not turn off the boss or something stupid, like I'm getting into back and forth with Nick Van. Exel, because Van Exel is dismissing me. I'm like, dude, come on. Nicot still, you know he could shoot, but you know, it's like, hey, where this is this is me against Avery. You want it didn't step up though. Did he? No, no, no, no. Because these guys all had something to lose. And then after I lose to Avery, I get into a shooting contest with Rolando Blackman. And he was the assistant coach and he lost. We were just shooting threes and he lost. So I'm like, all right there I came out with a little bit of dignity here because Blackman's one of the better shooters one of the great shooters have all time obviously..

"Was like oh totally i think i just stared at dirk leverage for like twenty five straight seconds didn't even think about it it's just hard wired it's just they're just there i'm sorry it is just there i get it being barrasso though like you don't want to be known as the single pervy dude although i don't think most women are thinking that marnie are women like ill wisey stirring at me it doesn't make sense to think like that when you're wearing something like that i will say that if i'm having a conversation with someone i do see them glance down at my chest i automatically go to protect myself and cover up in some way it is uncomfortable it doesn't mean that it's not you know welcomed or that i'm unattractive to the person it's just my automatic response to cover myself up and i don't fault the person who's sitting in front of me if he just stares doesn't pay attention to me then i felt that person yeah exactly but if he's lance's down thing would be a little much yeah exactly so but like i cover myself up and then hopefully that situation goes away because it's not visible anymore and i will be honest most often i take the blame for it but i'm like out maybe maybe this is too revealing like and i just cover myself up it's it's not a bigger deal than that for me so it's more embarrassing because i i know what he feels embarrassed about is now he's like oh crap now she thinks i'm staring now i've made her feel bad because he feels guilty about it he doesn't feel like yeah girl he feels guilty about it and once most guys who lear women are not like that they're just kinda like wow she deserved it because she exactly which is not the case here so i think habit change along with a little bit of awareness around this because since it is automated it's not fully automatic right he's conscious of it and then goes oh shoot i need to stop doing that i think if he goes for a walk catches himself doing it and then makes a concerted effort to stop doing that and also has finds out what the trigger is unfortunately the trigger is probably a low cut top the is going to have to get some minds of breasts walking down the street on nicer not but he's got it is got to figure out what that trigger is and then realize okay maybe catch it in the peripheral vision where some sunglasses outside and go and practice not staring for more than a quick second it's not that you're not allowed to look at it you don't it's not medusa you don't turn to stone immediately everyone knows it depends on who who's you're looking at i guess it depends yeah but it's the whole staring for more than just a couple of quick seconds again makes it awkward right antoine you're staring or staring continuously when you're going up back to the is back down to the chessmen up to the is that's when it gets really uncomfortable too so it's like you are allowed one quick glance at my boobs if my yet you're allowed one one quick glance down and then it's over like then you have to keep your eyes chin up dang time now tough yeah we're this is two thousand eighteen this is how you have to be now so what do you think about immersion therapy should he just go to like maison club and just that cared foods all day every day and just kind of get it out on the system i don't think it's something that's in his system i think this is just a normal i was saying before like i do it as well it's the same thing when you see something that you don't you don't see very often or something that interests you or something that potentially leads to something else that you really liked you're going to glance over at it doesn't matter if you've seen in a million trillion times you're going to continue looking at it like if i'm only allowed one quick glance and booby snatchers only allowed one quick glance and you look are you only allowed one click glance money or could you just have a license no not okay maybe i get too glances because but sometimes i think women are more uncomfortable when another woman is looking at them that way really yet i expect that yeah yeah.
