"Now I love them a whole lot more. Because Donovan Mitchell goes from the jazz to the cabs, the cabs send Colin Sexton, three unprotected picks that's practicing unsafe trades is what that is. Nice. Thanks, Tom. Two pick swaps. I like that. And two more players in exchange, so not a small price to pay for Donovan Mitchell. He's 25 years of age, been an all star for three seasons. So here's your roster. This is what I'm going to put out there on the floor. Come get some. Evan mobley, Jared Allen, Darius Garland, Kevin Love, and now Mitchell. Basketball's back in Cleveland. Now, Kevin Love, okay, maybe he can be the seasoned veteran, the leader, I don't think they cared about losing Collin Sexton. Because this is where stats lie. Colin Sexton averaged 24 a game on season. A couple of years ago. And if you watched him play, which, unfortunately, I did, is a ball hog. I mean, not a good player. Now, talent, talented, but I, you know, you'd watch and that's where Kevin Love had the frustration of playing with him and didn't hide his body language. And I don't blame him. And Colin Sexton can score, he can play, but that's not a guy that you want as the leader of your team. Darius Garland is a great player. Evan mobley has that potential. He was my favorite player in the draft. Jared Allen love him too. I got Mitchell under contract for a couple of four more years. This good stuff. But if you're a New York knick fan, you gotta go. What? It felt like, and I remember talking to Brian windhorst to the mothership. This is like the last week. And I thought somebody leaked in quotes, the Cavs interested in Donovan Mitchell. And then I thought, okay, that's maybe to spark the Knicks to, you guys, let's go. Let's get it done. Come on. RJ Barrett and obi toppin and a couple other players in unprotected picks and then you could get Donovan Mitchell. Donovan Mitchell has been in New York all summer long. He's from the Greenwich area. He was there the night that LeBron had the decision. So they miss out on LeBron at the decision. They miss out on Donovan Mitchell, who was there as a kid at the decision. Is that the stat of the day? I don't think that's a stat. That's pretty ironic, though. It's an ironic of it's the ironic of the day. Here comes that what? Ironic of the day. Yes, Boeing. Down to Mitchell's only 25. Does he feel like he's been around a lot longer? Well, he's been in the news a lot. This whole summer, but I don't know if that makes him feel older, but you know, here's a guy who didn't even stay in the New York area when he was coming out of high school. He went to Louisville. And then he's from Greenwich. He's there, and then he makes his decision. Well, sort of, that he wanted to be traded, or he was done. And I said this a while ago before anybody left the building, and I have a friend who's a Utah Jazz fan. I said wrecking balls coming. He goes, what do you mean? I go, they're going to bring the wrecking ball.

"Than they ever expected to go. Rudy Rudolph Gobert became a regular all NBA all star level player, which I think given his draft position was a surprise when it was a great story. Quinn Snyder, I voted him coach of the year. I don't know if he ever won. I can't remember off the top of my head. Great story, great offense, beautiful offense, Joe ingles, all that ran its course, and it's over now. And they have so many picks that they're in the thunder bucket of like, I can't get. The thunder and the jazz now should have to make a trade where they just exchange like 11 first round picks and no players or I guess a player has to be involved, but like just random players just for the sake. Well, I think Utah is in the pole position with draft just because of the unprotected nature, where certainly there's clipper ones that are still unprotected from the Paul George trade, but there are some other ones that are, you know, there's Philly in there that's got some protection. So which are still good, but I mean, what Utah has been able to do. And I know if you're a jazz fan, it's like it's a slap in the face of reality where like two years ago, you had the best record in the NBA and you had a you lose to the clippers in that second round series without Kauai. And then we saw what happened last year in Dallas and how life can change quickly in this league, right? Yeah, you had just signed Mitchell and Gobert of those extensions in a 2020 off season. You had them for four or 5 years and all that. And it just changes so quickly. The clipper series was the one. And I remember, I mean, I've talked about it as nausea, AD nauseam. You could feel it then. And that's why last season was so interesting going into it for Utah because you just thought, did it break them? Is that it? It was such a devastating loss yet. The Conley and Mitchell were banged up in all of this and it's just a series that at the very least you gotta get it to game 7 in your place, having had the season that you had as the number one seed. They couldn't even do that. And it just felt like such a devastating blow. Was it game four against Dallas where Mitchell Gobert alip ends up winning the game for them? And Gobert says, you know, what it's something to we hear all the noise, what's the noise and outlook? That was a fun moment. Now you're on the Timberwolves and Donovan Mitchell's on the Cavaliers and one shoe has dropped Donovan Mitchell. The other shoe Kevin Durant just hung in midair for a while and didn't drop and we are less than a month from training camp mister marks any parting thoughts on any of this? Well, no. Did we miss anything on the Lakers or any of this? No, I mean, they renewed their vows. All is good in the world, right? I'm just exciting for Cleveland. And I think we talked about teams that are sort of going to age together. There's a chance that we just have like a Scotty Barnes Evan mobley thing for a really, really long time. And by the way, Detroit, I said this before I went on vacation. I like what, in fact, I met a pistons fan somewhere on vacation and I said, you got to get back into the pistons. They're going to be exciting. With Kate Cunningham is the third member of that sort of trifecta. Yeah, I think they gave you a little bit of a blueprint after the all star break, right? I mean, I think that I think there'll be they compete, right? That's all you get ivy and Jalen Durham and I think I'm interested in this Sadiq bay this year. Without Jeremy grant not there. So they'll be intrigued. Well, Bobby, September 1st, we'll always remember September 1st, 2022, the Knicks did not get down to the image of the Cavaliers did. Thank you, as always, for your insight. And except for the designated rookie player thing. I'm not thanking you for that, even though it was important. It's always good to see you. I'm sure I will be talking to you soon. Who knows what could happen

"Cleveland is probably there with Toronto. Certainly, I think we're the raptors are. Would that group? And as I said earlier, you gave yourself a chance compared to where you to where this roster was yesterday. You just don't get players like this in free agency. Into a market like Cleveland, Dan Gilbert has become one of the, I don't know, four or 5 richest owners in the NBA. I think this deal, you don't make this deal if you think, well eventually we're going to have to get rid of one of these four guys because of tax reasons. You just don't do it. You don't give up this draft equity unless your owner has said, hey, look, I'll pay the tax to keep those four dudes together for winning. And by the way, the new TV deal kicks in midway through Garland's deal. And I think for year one of Allen's deal, so they get some at least early relief for the cap will start to go up a little bit more. I mean, it already went up the maximum they can go up this year. So with those deals locked in and Mitchell locked in for 24 25, I mean, it's not a disaster tax wise, but I don't even think it matters. I don't think they make this deal unless Dan Gilbert says, I'll pay the tax with the team's winning. And that leads me into the designated rookie. Extension rule. Okay, Bobby go, fine. Well, okay, please do it. Because it's relevant. And I can see where you're going. I didn't think of it until you brought it up, but who knows where we are in 2024, right? But for but for now, because Darius Garland signed a 5 year rookie extension and because you acquired Donovan Mitchell in a trade, you now have two players under that label. And how does that affect the Cleveland Cavaliers? Well, in the 2024 off season, when Evan mobley is extension eligible, you are not allowed to sign him to a 5 year rookie max extension. You can sign up to a four year or you can just wait and do what New Orleans did with Brandon Ingram. You wait till he becomes it. He have a handshake agreement. He becomes a restricted free agent in 2025, and then you sign him to that 5 year deal. But as I said, can I show you his hand today? Can I make the handshake deal right now? Can I put a $100 bill in my hand to grease the palms a little bit and make the deal now? Is that a violation of the CBA? Can I start lobbying if I'm Dan Gilbert for a change in the CBA between now and then that will allow me to assign Evan will be to a ten year $1 billion contract because I'd like to do that. You know, we'll probably happen in 2024. Have you watched the movie draft day with Kevin Costner? Yeah, the worst GM of all time. Why are we hero sizing that guy? He trades a million picks to move down and pick the guy he could do. So pick the guy. He could have just picked his stinks. Well, probably having a 2024 is that Kobe Altman will move Donovan Mitchelton in next to the three picks. He traded to Utah and you'll be able to sign Evan mobley to that max extension and all is good in the world. Well, look, we talked about you're joking, but we talked about this before, or at least I have. I wrote a piece a couple last month about why are all these teams so bold now trading buckets of unprotected pics well into the future when that was a no no for so long and I do think part of it is, I don't think this applies to Cleveland, I think you're just thrilled to add a talent to this talented core. I think part of it is the idea that, well, if everyone is doing this, if goes wrong on our end, we'll just do the reverse of the transaction we just did and get our picks back and no harm no foul, we tried our fans are happy we tried deal X goes bus. It doesn't matter. I love this for Cleveland. I agree with you, by the way, with Rubio back healthy, midway through the year whenever it is, Neto is a good stop stopgap. I like Osman is a bench guy. They do have a question at the three. Love was but third and 6 second or third and 6 men of the year voting last year. I think they're a good team. And to your point, I don't really care if they're not in the top three tier of the east. Next season. That's not the point of this trade. The point of this trade is to be really good for a long time, Milwaukee around Yanis is kind of aging and not uncertain. There are going to be awesome for the next two or three years. You know, Boston's got two young stars, Philly, Hardin will start to age at some point, we'll see a good max he has made. The point is to just be in the conversation for a long time as teams age out, other teams obviously will age in with Cleveland. I just, I like their four man core, I love that they're going for it. It's a really fun team and I can't wait to watch them and I like, I think it's a good trade for you. I think they got what they wanted. Yeah, I mean, you parlay, basically Mitchell and Gobert and you got 6 unprotected ones and a lightly protected 7th pick.

"By the same token, I talked about Donovan Mitchell with Tim McMahon and I said, what is he like? I don't think he's made it all NBA team, right? No, he hasn't. He's made, you know, let's just double check here. I don't care. I'll go. I know he has. I mean, I think for me, Mitchell, I think he's a borderline top 20 player. That's fair. He's something like the 18th to 24th, the best player in the NBA. And I said, I remember saying, that's a really good player. That's a great player. And I think he's still getting better. Two seasons ago, I thought he belonged in the most improved player conversation because I thought his playmaking had made a little bit of a leap. That kind of stagnated last year. Obviously his defense, particularly in the Mavericks series, you just have to hope that was a wake up call for him because that was frankly embarrassing for a player of his caliber with a 6 9 wingspan to get lit up like a Christmas tree over and over like that. And I remember saying, diamond Mitch was a great player, blah, blah, blah, he also is like the 9th or tenth best version of number one option on ball creator. And if you have the 9th best Luka Dončić or the 9th best LeBron James, like, what are you really, where are you really going as a team? Well, now you mitigate that issue by combining Garland and Mitchell into like a super one man on ball creator. They can split duties. Mitchell historically has taken like not quite twice as many, but many more pull up threes than catch and shoot threes. That should change. That should even out. He shot 43% on catch and shoot threes two seasons ago. He's capable of playing off the ball. They can stagger minutes. I think this fit is really good. I'm really excited for this team. I don't mind the, I mean, the pick outlay, it's gonna sound hypocritical because I thought that the hawks gave up too much for dejante Murray and so why am I praising the calves for giving up three unprotected pics and two unprotected swaps for Donovan Mitchell and I think it's because a Mitchell's better and I love Dijon Murray but I think Mitchell's better and B I just think that the Cavs have three legit building blocks, three guys you look at as I know they're gonna be if all things go well health wise, really good players on my team for the next 5 years improving throughout the duration of those 5 years because of their age and I look at the hawks and I'm like damn in terms of guys who fit that description, they have Trae Young. And a Congo who I really like, but is a little bit unproven. I think he's gonna be a really good player. He's proven a lot to me, but we'll see how he fares in bigger minutes. John Collins is like perpetually on the trade block. This feels like a more stable situation and to get to the Knicks. I think that's exactly why the mix in the end didn't pay the piper to the degree that the Cavs did because they just don't have as ready made of a roster to win with Donovan Mitchell making their risk on those draft picks higher than it is for Cleveland. Well, circling back to Atlanta a little bit here and when you talk about the picks and everything, I think while I like this deal a little bit better for Cleveland for Atlanta with Atlanta with Deontay Murray, you've basically boxed yourself in a corner because of his contract is so good. It's so team friendly that you're basically you're not going to be able to extend him because of the value and you're basically going to have to pay him, right? If he plays it out and he plays at a good level, like you were paying him premium money in two years from now when he's an unrestricted free agent. Like that's the reality. For Mitchell, you have at least for three years, right? So you have for three deal. Three years. We see these guys get traded and they're like immediately flight risks. That's not the case here. He turns 26 at the next week. September 7th, right? So, I mean, that's, I mean, because you already owed Indiana at first in 23, like I'm sure it would have been 23, 25 and 27, maybe, right? But because of how the picks are going out here, like there was always going to be a risk that that player you acquired was not maybe not be on your roster when they come to fruition here, right? So now it's your job as an organization to make it appealing for Donovan Mitchell for when he becomes a free agent. Like it's not like he's going to a team where he has to do all the heavy lifting, right? Like you have Garland. You have mobile. You have Alan. You've got levert still. We'll see what happens with him. You still have a quarrel. Don't forget dean wade for all your accounting needs. For all your accounting needs. And remember, you're getting you'll get Rubio back eventually, right? From that, you get Neto. You got low Kevin Love still there. So you still have like, you know, there's not like it was a total gut job just because, you know, as I said, like Sexton was restricted free agent. He wasn't under contract. Who knows how he was going to kind of play into things? Well, it does open up a hole at the three. I mean, we know four of their starters, the three, which was marketing last year, nominally becomes a little bit of a mystery. I think levert, not enough shooting, not enough defense, not enough size to play that position ideally. A lot of pressure on a Coro who has played a lot of three. I think is better as a two size wise and I remember talking to Chris fedor right before I left on vacation, had the most wide open threes in the NBA last year. The most consistently in terms of distance from distance to defender is from him wide open threes and just doesn't make enough of him. So we'll see. It does make enough of a specifically to play with two bigs, like mobility now. So that's a little bit of a worry spot, but I think Osman may end up being the least of all evils there as a starter, but we'll see. I think this is a really good team. And I don't know where they fit in the east this year. I think Milwaukee Boston Philly in terms of regular season wins because with Philly, I have some questions about what happens after that. I think that's a clear top three. And Brooklyn, I just, I'm so tasted changed their name to the Brooklyn on papers because just every single time you're asked a question about them or they're talked about on a podcast or whatever is on paper, they're a great team on paper. Like on paper, a lot of things could be true. I could draw myself on paper looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger and be like, on paper, this is what I look like. I am so tired. The next are out of that tier until they show me they can be, I know this is a novel concept, Bobby. A basketball team of basketball players who play basketball on a basketball court on paper, they fit really well. On paper, they're championship contenders. Yo, cool. Kyrie didn't play last year. That should not be the case Fisher. I expect him to play 60 plus games of his healthy. Kevin Durant just asked to coach the owner of fire, the coach in the GM. And then was like, I agree to stay. By the way, I have a four year contract. Ben Simmons had back surgery hasn't played in a thousand years in the last time we saw him play was passing up dunks. They're out. They're out of the first tier until proven otherwise. After that, I think Cleveland's right there. I think Miami is at some risk of a fall back this year, but they always proved me wrong, so who the hell knows? Toronto is right there. I think Cleveland is given itself a puncher's chance to, if things go really right for them and really wrong for somebody, they could have a shot at the four seat. I don't think that's crazy. No, that's not at all. I mean, going back to your on paper thing, I've used on paper for Brooklyn so much this year that I was talking about the Patrick Beverly tray with someone like a week ago, and I said, yeah, on paper. And I'm thinking to myself, like, you didn't need to say that, but it's so programmed in your brain. Thunder mifflin should be the sponsor of the nets this year. Because on paper, they're amazing. Yeah, so they are probably, they're the wild card and but yeah, as you mentioned, the three teams Boston Philly Milwaukee.

"So they throw a little reference in there. So there you go, influenced. So would you mention one Donovan thing? He had a song, almost about an inch worm. Do you remember what it was? My first there is a mountain that is no mountain first, there is a mapping. Yeah, is that a novelty song? It's almost novelty. It's kind of, you know.

"See in court, man. Am I wrong here? No, you're not. You're not. I was singing the chorus. I was singing the chorus. Jack's not here, Jack won't be here, Suzanne, so that's all there is to that. Now I'm only kidding. He's not here this week. He comes and goes. We're gonna have a Jack's doing. The show must go on. I got my musical geniuses with me. Amply aptly apt aptly, fill in. So enough about Jack. I have to say, as a musician, you know, this is why I don't produce much because every time I come up with something that might, you know, I'll pursue that. You know, 9 out of ten times after a while, you're like, well, you know what that reminds me. You know what song that reminds me of. And that's as far as then you just drop the whole thing is why? Because your plagiarizing at that point. It's hard. It's hard to be unique, you know? You can't copyright a chord progression. It's just the melody. And the lyrics, you know. How many songs are in folk songs are in GCD? Every blues band in the world would be. I always said the same thing with creep by radiohead and the air that I breathe by the hollys. The middle parts are both middle parts are similar. So I could see that. I can see but that's like the oasis Alanis thing was almost that seemed like a direct ripoff. They both begin with an acoustic that sound relatively the same. It's the same strumming pattern. Aside from Donovan's very a feminine voice telling a very mythical story, you know, it goes into that whole all around the world, and he does his thing. Tiger, wait a minute, let me go. And I actually went in, came in the studio, went right on, started chopping up download video, I chop it up, I put it in iMovie and I pinned them together, and I'm like, it's fucking sound. Sounds the same. I heard something I never heard before, Atlantis. On that course, of course, but there's a banjo. I never heard that before. You can hear banjo fucking banjo. Right. Of all things. It's pretty interesting. But it's not I never listened to a headphones now. And they both have a steady build. And they both hit like a crescendo, and they level off up there, and then it just kind of the song kind of goes out. And I'm like, there's no way they didn't fucking copy that. There's no way. If they're selling, here's I think the role of a producer. Like if I was producing that record, I'd be like, hey guys, I want to come into the booth here. We're going to talk for a minute. You know, and if there was something else unless the producer never heard Atlantis,

"Donovan Mitchell's going to need help. And as we've established in this discussion, this is not a complete team by any stretch. They're going to need another guy. They're going to be multiple guys. Also, by the way, a lot of the young players you mentioned, Chris, some of the most intriguing young guys, whether it's top end or Grimes, McBride quickly, some of those guys are going to Utah on this deal. It's not just going to be a bunch of pics. You can still get a deal with salary matching rules or whatever. I don't know where the jazz is cap situation is, but you're going to have to deal with at least some part of the salary matching rules. And besides that, the jazz, as they did in the Rudy Gobert deal, aren't going to take just picks. They're going to want some young players as well. So some of the next young depth is going out the door in this deal. So you know, you don't want to overpay. But you also do have to recognize that Danny ainge holds all the cards here. He does not have to trade Donovan Mitchell. Donovan Mitchell's under contract for at least three more years. Donovan Mitchell has not to our knowledge asked out. Even if he did, you don't have to honor it. All-Star Game is in Salt Lake City. Next February, there's already been rumblings that they wouldn't mind still having him there just to represent them when they host the game. I think that's silly, by the way. I don't think it should matter. Which, by the way, I don't believe. I don't believe Danny ain't gonna beholden to. No, if there's a right deal for Donovan Mitchell, he goes. Of course, like I say, I think that's silly, but ownership may have a different feeling about that than I do. And the bottom line for the jazz is, and for Danny ainge's, if there's a great deal out there, it's the deal you want to make, you make it. If not, you have every ability to just go into the next

You know pe- people will ask what's the You know journalists like what's the thing you want to count people that helped you or how do you go was like the one bit of advice you would give and truly. It is the main thing that helped me to heal was to actually. Just sit in the pain of what i was going through. That's it because it's so it's so the idea of it is so overwhelming that it feels like. Oh i'll never come back from that this painful. I can't be in it. So i'm gonna keep evading but really the evading of it and they're trying to skirt around and do all these things just prolongs needs to happen and that sitting with it sitting with the grief step by step is actually what helped me to heal.

Being able to find that in on your second year you you hit and everybody you like right and i i. I don't know what that is yet. You know what i'm saying. I'm trying to find it and know.

"We're gonna be a lottery team. And at that point we were kind of making our way out the place we were like nineteen and thirty and then we went on a crazy fifteen game win streak or something like you like. I get credit. He saw some now. It's just like like man. Like i go ahead mike. You know next. It's twenty five twenty. Eight thirty thirty. Three like can is consistent throughout the year and we ended up surprising a lot of people and then not making the playoffs that year against a team that had beaten us when they swept us. They swapped us rookie year for four. I think it was four or three one or whatever but it was russ. Pg and mellow and they killed us throughout the whole year and then we get to the play offs and we just went out there and you know i had a series that i was like man like i'm playing against melo who. I grew up watching. When i went to nick games. I try to copy all the moves that russ was doing. He's i her dunkin on an mpg. If you must have told me that should be in the league now in a playoff series about s my welcome to the nba. On me. i had a few rows without was kind of like a real one for me and you know we get it up playoff series and i'm just coasting through and doing our thing and in winning that one So it was crazy. How you go from goal was to win eight and six inches. Make the rotation being. Honestly where i'm at now. I think it's i'm definitely blessed and lucky for that opportunity that came. Continue to put the working. Yeah that's a three hall of famers right the straight. She has a big series. You play maturity play. Well you know what i'm saying. You have the type of experience. Unlike that i have noticed from you. Now you know saying you that experience early and so forth all you very patient now. You know what i'm saying you ain't like how your first year you know kinda bulldozing a little bit and you know what i'm saying just going going going but like i see your patients waiting for the picks and make sure guys really getting pick instead are going hit and run over there for you can kind of see the game. The game slow down a little bit for this early. You know say israel is crazy because it comes with a lot of them. I think that's the worst. One of the most underrated aspects of the game is watching yourself in watching the bad highlight by watching the bad ones like the bag. Games the ban possession so for me like you said setting up. The pick and roll is huge. Not just are hearing comes. Just take off this because now you playing that you holidays you play in the paul george declared thompsons do who are just as athletic or could slide. They feet to be able to stay in front of you. So now you making it harder and yourself. Now send a guy up coming off to pick road the only thing. That's not the rim by you got rudy on lob and initiate the past two years what we have we have excellent shooters of may my life so much easier. Now i'm saying so like off like shoot. You want to help. Cool like boy. The three you don't want to help. You know what i mean and kind of repin that out but it starts with being able to see what i was doing wrong. You know what i'm saying but then there's no experience like going through it in the game going into a season over and over again so for me. It's like okay. You've been here before you've seen every coverage now. How do you initiate it. You know what i mean. And there's definitely areas that can definitely improve in. But i can feel the game slowing down. And i've you hear everybody say that and you don't really know until you going to do it and you're like This is what anybody's talking times possession at a time knows exactly you kinda can come. Down are one of the things that i always respected about. You got out you gotta dunk contest and you. You actually got the winning this. Tell me about how that was. Because i know as a kid you know that was one of the things that i always wise. I wished i would have been became a good enough dunk completely. Doug contact without you not shoot threes. I would just tell me how that experience was view as a rookie being out there on stage and i know you didn't why so many times growing up and then to actually get to win and be up there and you get joe me that you didn't why so many times people stand up there alana's yeah the legendary guys like. How's that for you to get that moment as a rookie right away. I mean honestly it was crazy. 'cause i didn't get selected as the main four i only ethic. Are you a replacement. Yeah i was a replacement. So aaron gordon got hurt and then i only had to remove prepare so i only have two weeks to prepare so i was like shoo every dog i did. I've been doing since high school like the first one route. Do it off the other basket estimates a wall in high school. You know you got the wall behind him back like that was the same thought process and everything else i already been doing. And what's made the first one like you good after that like for me. It's not the first world exactly exactly. Everybody started missing. My confidence grew even more. So i'm like okay. Like dennis would have worn pants down genesis. I know y'all seen the tapes. Dennis smith got some crazy by. Let me ask you this right before you got ready to dump. You're sitting on the little box and stuff and you know. The world is watching gasoline. Hails packed in her. And you've got all your peers k. D. lebron all. The mona sidelight was the nerves at that. Where was the the butt of it in that moment. When you kind of sit down you just breathe and then you know you're gonna come up next break. I mean for me. What helped us wasn't sitting on the bench. So what i did was i. Don't i went. I changed every fit. Sludge every dunk. So i would leave so i left until it was like my turn so i wasn't really thinking about also you ain't get all you ain't get your. I need to give you. i might be. I don't wanna hear none of that right now. Like i'm zone. So i left every chance. I got nicknamed back on floor..

"I hear about gossip as well so when asked about you. Say y'all watch watch. He was like he ain't even got to where he going to be yet. He like they seeing something. Did any be gonna be what he going to be like right now. He just planned whom you said you just ask you. That made me think about what you're talking about. You just plan out athleticism and this and that but he was like he got a whole nother give with the one thing that he told me. A gal gadot you. He was like the kid work hard and he plays aso. And i like when somebody do like when he gave me that type of guy reporting. He tells me he liked the didn't we have you worked there last Play hard as a within. Like you know what i'm saying like that's pretty much. The biggest part of the recipe for media people need to be able to make it. That's my dog and he was. It was tough. I think i tell people all the time being recruited tell people that's a tough thing for eighteen seventeen eight year old telescope. That you've got that close bond with that you not come into school. Their office phone calls. I ever. that's something ashok. You'd become real close with that coach. Say you got to be a man and tell gonna be a man. Go and tell them exactly. I was a tough one because it was like a few called his hand. Child coach francis went. Who's iowa at the time like those two schools for me was like man like you know school. That almost got down once they almost got me into. I tell people all the time. Like i wanted to go to usc. Like i didn't care if i was the last minute on the bench if they would've offered me a scholarship like i would want to use a history learn. Usc hashtag by man. When i went to live. I made sure i lock muster a. We ain't losing to them like we. I'm files one time. I think we ain't losing it at by an off me and greg i've talked about i told roy 'cause we're williams that and i was like man like only on. He was like no him. He's like god dang it like that was the school. I want to show but i'm happy. Everything worked out louver on things have been great sense. You charles with chain nolan cheneau. Got the history you know. He's been in the game forever and even some grades. What did you learn for when you playing with him. That kind of stuck with you. Now today I would I will say i. He has a way of unlocking something. That is there that you don't know like like you said like you like you said dennis cases like he unlocked a dog. A fire me. I already had a fire but like when you hear on you just tap into because now you playing angry because he was crazy coast piece crazy because control. You'll power play angry. You know what. I mean but like not like like angry. It's like a how to describe what he unleashes dog exciting for me. It was just like everybody in front of me is not better than me like he did competitive that competitive nature him in months of the assistant coach staff. That was there. They created that culture. When it's like everybody knew how that's how they recruit russ missed the peyton. Cba the trays terry. Everybody's kind of under recruited under the radar and then like only always play against the better team the better school the five star recruits so. He definitely created that hunger in that fire. That was there but he kind of took it to a different level on them. Him and Coach ralph That is so. He was assistant coach at the time and they had told me they changed my jump shot like the reason why we know really kind of started shooting was because i started to shoot in on the line drive. He spent all summer shooting with different trajectory. He always frustrated heart. Yeah talking about the arc in changed everything and start shooting from farther. Started shooting members range in practice. Decide get used to. So when i made the transition thousands of the things that really copy bryce saying no actually really shoot like that. How was it being in in louisville. I know when you go to kentucky the university of kentucky the bluegrass boy. They kinda take most of the land down there. I wasn't you know being in kentucky. Being that louisville most of the state is rooting for the wildcats. In y'all's good teams. Don't yours no represent and you know make you out more. I mean it was a story of my life really like not expecting us to win. You know what i mean. At that time we play. Should we play jamal. Murray my freshman year tyler ulis poitras. Was there the team we beat. Had bam on bible leak as are briscoe on the air fox and Somebody else missing somebody so i never let them hit end of it. Because i was like last time we'd be kentucky and a very long time but you know the whole state but that one game i will say like crazy in that that kentucky louisville robbery because it's one time of year as the bragging radio like that one game is usually right around christmas new years time so nobody's in school. Everybody has time off and everybody come to the game and that's definitely one of them games whereas like that means more in kentucky and win a national championship does about say like. I've seen the commercials in a different things. It really like when you in kentucky see the red and blue in yo-you some yards somehow got his red and blue and they fighting this but they like that's a real thing in kentucky israel and everything closed now. I mean everything from the gas station to the seven eleven. Everything closed on that day. Like five o'clock hits the game. Time is like i said everybody's watching game everybody's tune in for like that day is It's pretty well. What is that like be owned that type of light. You know like the whole town like the host that he shut down for the day like in his like all like what type of atmosphere is that like outside one of the most nervous game had you know when i went to kentucky was probably more nerve wracking complain at home because when you get dumb using the i wanna go out shooting the student's section there they already dan you not so they out there. They got your name. They got who you did. High school guy who needs a college they got. They got all that stuff like britain down. They got your mom. Your sister your save everything. I instagram photo. Like they got all that is crazy. Yeah all all these big posters so not only are they reading the day showing it a above is. I'm like an like a homework. like go. All out man. And then the game itself is i will say you s. five on eight when you go to kentucky. But it's five eight when you play at louisville high school game where you go play. The rival team related employ red zone. When they come on down. I get up out of town nice. How was the lamar jackson. Football games the ego crazy growing nuts. It's crazy 'cause our freshman year. He came in and replaced. So we had the starting quarterback hurt Second-string got hurt and the thurston wasn't playing well. Small the four string our freshman year so that he came in all he really was doing was running the along so it kinda works on games and that was it. I'll know what he did that summer but.

"This is all you get leave your fans with feeling like complete absolutely fabulous i mean did you watch back when it aired the constantine series on nbc all. Yeah it was great. It was great and then an ended like in the middle and we were left like what what what does happen. So i don. I don't want that to happen to some of these other shows you know. And that's why. I'm optimistic for titan season. Three you know now that it's under the. Hbo mags and the china worked out the kings on stuff and it feels like they're going to move more quickly through it. We have the team like costumes. And let's face it. We love our superhero costumes. That's that's part of. That's part of the fun of watching these shows is costumes and powers constantly. Wants to and we've had one division and we've had talking to winter soldier that have both delivered cinematic level stories and effects and costuming. So that's that's been good for you know waiting for that. Big marvel event moving. And then you've had like the one offs. Like i said like the boys was good about giving you a little bit of spectacle and every in every episode. You know like it has that nice blend of having the storyline of the episode the over arkin long storytelling but also each episode leaves you satisfied. And you get something to see. You know special effects. You see the costumes. The way everything designed in each episode of cradle-to-grave three and it's it's just nice to know that the property that you love gets treated. Respectfully i mean i feel like the. Cw has done. An amazing job was superman. Lois like they've done a great mean hit or miss the verse. Whatever you wanna call. It has been an achievement. Absolutely we wouldn't have shows of the errors. It all started with era exactly and i think it was crazy as people were in time. Now where comic book fans they are. They're quick to yell. Reboot are and they are being Pandered to a lot of ways and we have a lot. You know i mean you just go back to right before. Ero premiered had smallville. Yes that was a really about it. And then starting. Around the time of arrow we got arrow and then the next year is when we start getting agents of shield and season two of ero and then we started getting into because then the year after that was what gotham flash since stuff so now we just have a live of people complaining about stuff not remembering the dark days. It's not go back to the dark days backing we'd have one movie eight year one movie a year and like three years between batman films. And now we're like play with any of the properties even like we're getting maybe two movies a year from dc. That's they're working goal and that's fine for them exactly. Marvel is looking at about three to four movies a year. One each season basically each quarter and now we have the the television shows to give us stuff as we as we go forward so we have a lie. We have just trying to keep up with the cw shows is it self. Were you black leggings. Done super girls. Not on right now in august supergirl returns and so to start. Girls star. girl can't wait can be awesome and i am excited for season two. I just really want them to keep the stars starkville. Yes watch se. Can't we just don her star outfit again again. I was pretty cool. So that's kind of a state of comedy. People just need to relax. Enjoy jason donovan She's doing good. She's awesome that's-that's the state of all comics. And that's you know and this is going to be a weird summer and just the sense of like we're going to have black widow the film. It's going to be summertime. Look i know you love starker like you know it was always streaming services that kind of filled that summer gaffe like last year was like star girl that spring into summer or is it two years you. I can't even remember last year time in time and then tightened at first titans in september. And then i think it premiered in july by july was it. I'm trying to know titans is more late. September ish to kids because when titans season three premiers it'll be split shortly shortly under earth two years since it ended ended november of nineteen with with supposedly season three going to be like september twenty twelve. So it's crazy to think about swamp thing we got over the summer when it air so streaming services kind of always padded out that credit need but this year because of everything like superman. Lois go so august. August the rest of supergirl and star girl and then the flash back in november back in january. I'm gonna guess january february january so just thinking about that. I'm like it's just going to be a continual ride on not only streaming but just the network channels as well. It's going to be on ryback..

"Story of books yet. So if you were going to read the books okay. I would say what i would say. You know you'd watch the series then read the prequel book and then watch than read the rest of the book because we didn't even get to the story the heart of the books. We were setting things up. And i saw after it was announced was cancer genes. Okay i'm gonna tell you how the book scale. And i told her and her jaw dropped. I take lot and she was like what. Yeah and now you can kind of see through their planting the seeds to build. And here's the problem. I like long storytelling. But i think there's an issue too and jupiter legacy in some ways shows that you had the idea but you took too much time to get going. Yeah some major. And i kind of i sit back. And that was one thing that like the doom patrol series. I kind of had issues with. But sometimes i felt like okay. Can we keep it going. We're we're getting like we're slowing down too much. And that's why. I feel like having the the fifteen ish episodes works because i feel like it helps you to take your time but also get to your end so that if i said to you. Hey we're gonna pull the plug. Okay i've kind of accomplished what until after this season's done especially in the streaming series where you wanna leave it open to continue you. Want your audience to feel that. They've except gotten a story a beginning middle end and that this was all they got. We're in place. And that is not how troopers legacy ended in a very much to be continued. And i said i had hoped that they had already films more episodes and they were gonna drop them later. Dan but but no and i'm pretty and so that just be disappointing to. I did hear a little bit. I think i read a little article san coolest possible. I don't know about and i don't know how that related work with how work millar will supposedly aligned with netflix. It's kinda like netflix. Killing their own baby instead of just like recalibrating and maybe going into it and maybe out running the double parallel storylines of the past in the ford. And just do the just do the modern day story with a couple of flashback scenes. And you know something where you the fans of the books and the show and feel vindicated. Like we've got our story but you know there are kind of put a good spin on a and that they're going to continue on they're taking the property of you know they're going to do other millar properties. The and and i'm like okay. Good i mean that was the whole point. Was you guys. We're going to explore all day. But i feel like superman. Lois going back is it's given me just that amount where i feel like. I'm getting my story there. I felt each episode. Has its beginning middle end. And i feel like we're moving along and we're not drawing things out. Yes and the flash shoot. That was always my favorite series. And it's very hard to compare a show like the flash where you're in season seven season seven. I started that still blows my mind. And you have a show like superman and lois in season. One it's always. It's always easier to come out of the gate with your first season. An awesome the flash. This season has definitely been or recalibration. Yes you've had cast members have to leave. You had late so where the series just ended fell a lot like its mid season finale. Yes and then we need to think about it. The first three episodes of this season was basically wrapping up the plotline from last season. Then this season officially started. And then we've kind of wrapped up the first half of this season and out of every show i've watched on the w the flash sees most affected by cova protocols. It'll go the flash and then supergirl kids. It just feels like very toned very smell and it just kind of sucks for super girls final season in the way it is And it's it's been weird but the the the first season the flashes still amazing and it's it's just crazy that like you said season seven you know and i'm hoping for a really great season eight and i'm going to be positive. Say yeah. I think because of kobe and changes they had to have cast members. But this season just kinda was like had some issues but the whole long storytelling. I think it works in doesn't end because like a show on the flash y i like the way the cw shows go ally is because you get your storyline of the episode. You get stuff towards your ongoing story but you get your beginning middle end you get your superheroes in their costume doing their heroin and then some of the other shows you might not get that you might get up to where it just feels like you binge-watch because you're sometimes because you're seeking that end you know you're you're watching the next episode because you want to feel like you're fulfilled or that you're getting the story and and some of these more long formats telling 's we don't always get that you know. That was some of the issues. I have tightened season one. Where i thought it'd be just dragging things out and we know that titans season one had a compromised ending also where they this is. What's crazy man. I don't know if you know this. But the first season titans it was supposed to end. Dick was going to be neethling. They had shot footage of the patrol showing up and helping them break them out of and fight trag on and But they used footage and it was supposed to be super boy so they kept that tees. Yes but then if you watch the first episode of season two. There's that really weird spot. Where raven goes the fight triathlon and then when she comes back she looks older. She looks different because that was the new footage and then they have like little end piece. That was new footage so d- first episodes of season two is constant compromise. Re-edit of what would have been the final episode of season one. So my my my all my rant is to say if you say look at each season almost as if it's your last right like if i'm going to this i want to tell this story. I want to try to get this done in this season. 'cause usually first streaming service you shoot everything before you even start releasing stuff usually so go into it like that. Have an idea of where you're going to kill the second season but if.

"Things happening at perrodin refunding. Welcome to a special episode of krypton. Report this is me tyler. And i got with me a friend of mine that we chat all the time but we thought it'd be fun to finally like record it and get it on episode. I'd like to welcome my good friend. Mr donovan hunter and say hello. Hello donovan like my movie buddy and we talked about movies and comics and all kinds of stuff like that and domino rights. Great reviews for movies and i always appreciate especially the movie. They don't get to see because he comes from that point of view of like. Did i enjoy this. You know. I think some so many times. Critics don't analysis reviews like the movie fund. Actually enjoy breakdown in late tear stuff apart. But if i'm having a good time in the world that the movie presents. I i can let things go exactly so i wanna jump in here. Is donald tell me a little bit about your just like comic fandom in superhero fandom and how it started in just a little quick brief history for listeners com okay. It all started when i was a little kid. My dad always told me that even took me just need superman. The movie back in nineteen seventy eight. I was eight months old. And for some reason i just remember seeing the big red s in the opening credits so that that has a very historic. Feeling that me and my dad. Got me a superman keith. And i was a little kid. He got a boon to keep his red but the the s was black and i had like yellow in the center of it so different but it was still on. I still have that case to this day and just always looked comics and all that some of my my dad got me into communist because he the comments day yet been taken off since like you know awesome awesome so currently. Are you watching any of the shows and keeping up on. The film's is i am. I'm watching Currently minimalist and the flash on the cw can every year comes out so yeah just wait mom black win another month and more as i think we we all work on black widow. I feel like we've talked about this. Black widow has kind of fallen into that weird lol land. Where like a lot of ways. I feel like the hype for. It's kind of died so much now. We're let's just get it over with now. And i hate saying that. I feel like we're excited for low key. It's kinda the same way we are filled towards wonder woman. Eighty four was. Do you keep giving us a date. You hype it up you. Do everything handed promote. And then you know. Keep changing on us. Tour now is like the the feeling has kind of worn down and i think i mean i think it will still do. Well will still be something to be excited about. We're still going to see you know that sensation of the new film is kind of been and and the already have the engine working for shane. I mean yes exactly. Knocked them for those already. Merchandise toys for uh We haven't even seen yet. We're still like four months from that. All the black widow merchandise toys gone so or anyone who goes and sees with their kid and then like get cast massacre mask or whatever. It's on now. It's really cool taskmaster shirt but you know. It's thirty seven dollars only not. I don't make it that much of a former now. I'm sure do well since the movie comes out movies help promote products exactly and it's all connected and that it shows that one one part fails how the rest of the system can fall apart. Thousand the cracks. Yeah exactly that was always one thing they had issues with. The nolan batman films was they weren't to use the term toy ethnic donald like no. They made toys for them. People bought them just because like it was banning general. But it wasn't like. Oh i have to have this batman because you really couldn't sell those films the children and can you on the same way with a lot of dc films of the most childlike dc film. That they've had has been sham in auckland to you know and even inches him had a little bit of the darker tones times absolutely but at the same time like toys that is a large market and the toy market is just so rough anymore. Like i was telling my here my whole theory about how cardi networking and be part of the reason. Why twice and why gone. We talked about this because you had all these stations fighting for content all your major networks and so they were creating toys in creating a series from the toy then vice versa. There was thorough toys for everything even cartoons like one of my favorites was mummies alive in the ninety. La came on the at six six thirty in the morning on school days or whatever and there was awesome toys for that. But now it's the same properties over and over and over you. Just don't see a fun and expansive now like you know like you said. Cdc toy all his batman like maybe a superman every now and then mostly. Could've you know gadgets. Himself it's like. Yeah and i you can accessorize sell. You can sell batmans gloves. Batmans mas- batman. A cave is the bell whole cost him his car. Whatever nine like all right. We got the suit in cave. We're gonna we're gonna. So what's your take bingo going on superman and lois. How have you been enjoying that. Show is great is just an absolute sham. And it's up there with flash at my opinion if not better. I know it's brand new. Which started off. Like so what i swear. I is the episode that we've just witnessed felt like the what would have originally been planned as the mid season finale and we're at the halfway point with the series because i think the only fifteen episodes fifteen sixteen i think it wasn't supposed to be twelve. And then they expanded it good. And what's interesting. Is this balancing act. And i think i think fifteen episodes is the sweet spot. Yes i think likely insects sixteen. Okay i think black light fifteen fifteen season two already season. I think just it works. Well okay black. I think she was twelve. And i think it really could have gone another two episode or at least one because i thought the wrap up. I'd seen this before it. Like it was so quick in odd but they also wasted an episode during a backdoor pilot. That went nowhere but just recently. Netflix canceled shooters legacy after one season. Like if like three weeks. And i'm like that really bothered me because i had hoped okay. No way that they had done it was because it said volume one that they had filmed both like volume one and two and they were breaking up the release. Yeah what it seems like. There's nothing else to release and net flicks by or has a whole contract with millar world anymore. That was going to be their original property. Unlike how they how they lost dared of all and all those back to marvel millar world was going to be there. Comic book in and troopers legacy was supposed to be the big pilot for that program. And what bums me is. I read the books and per season of the show was like prequels. The to two time timelines both operated as prequels to the timelines of the books and we. We never even got to the.
