"Of two thousand. Twelve Thomson is speaking to the Milwaukee Press Club. They open it up to audience questions somebody tells Thompson they know. He's a rail buff. Would he have turned back the federal money for the train. I'm not going to criticize Governor Walker. He made a decision support him on that. I've said that before. Let that sink in the father of the high speed rail line line between Madison and Milwaukee a lover of train since his boyhood and Elroy is standing with Walker Thompson tells the crowd that day that the proposed train wasn't quite what he had in mind. It had too many stops between Madison. And Milwaukee says and that made it to slow. I would've changed. high-speed trains into really being high-speed trains. CAN'T I would've changed it and I would've stopped just had immediately walk into. Madison knows stops. Make it high-speed Maitree to our knowledge. Tommy Thompson has never publicly criticized Scott Walker for stopping the train to this day. That's something he says. He won't do biographer. Doug Moe says he thinks thanks Thompson has never let his true feelings show no he. I think he was devastated. When when Walker turned down that money I mean I think he did not think that was a good idea? You know looking forward if it bothers Thompson in two thousand twelve. He never reveals it Thompson battles on through a bruising using primary whereas conservative credentials our question time and again by political newcomers he wins barely Thomson gets just thirty. Four percent of the vote. Eric finishes right behind him with thirty one percent going into the General Election Thompson. Thinks he's a shoo-in by the campaign slips away it turns out this democratic congresswoman Tammy Baldwin's moment Baldwin saves her money during the bruising. Gop Primary and when it's over over she attacks Thompson someone who's lost touch her TV ads hammer home the refrain. He's not for you anymore. And in the end Baldwin and wins by about six percentage points. She'll be the nation's first openly gay. US senator voice was heard tonight Wisconsin and in his concession concession speech that night Tommy Thompson is crushed. I certainly didn't need the job and I guess I guess I'm not going to get it. Yeah and I don't need anything more on my resume because already accomplished more than anybody from Elroy ever thought take Doug Moe thompsons biographer says. This defeat stung the former governor so much that they took a hiatus from working on his book. It's a topic he doesn't like to talk about. And when we sat down to talk Thompson for this podcast it wasn't at the top of our list but we did ask him if running for Senate caused him to change what he was saying about the train. He said he didn't remember. But the Tommy Thompson of today sounds a lot more like Tommy Thompson of one thousand nine hundred ninety nine when it comes to this train. He still thinks that his idea was a good good one that it could have worked and he gets a little worked up over the argument. Today's conservatives US against traits that they take too much government money to run people. People say well. Why should the federal government says rail whether you subsidize passengers in your car's by building highways subsidize air travel but building huge amounts of federal dollars go? It goes into subsidized in all the airports in American. So when you put it apples apple samples every one of the modes of transportation are being subsidies but even if he gets worked up over what the party says about trains he realizes how Republicans Kim's got here at some point there just weren't prominent conservative voices pushing for trains anymore Amtrak anymore pushing Paul wiry in the conservative movement at died and was not The Voice of of recent out there with conservatives talk radio got opposed to it and politics change. The other thing we wanted to know from Thomson is a little harder to answer. How did politics change so quickly? Why are things so divided now? How did the idea of this train go from futuristic and forward-looking to Boondoggle in just just a decade? We asked Thompson about a half dozen versions of this question and his normally booming voice gets softer and softer. He keeps telling US variations the same. The answer I'm not going to criticize anybody because I I was governor at a different time and I I love trains Winston. I love my vision. Making Wisconsin stronger and better and other people come in and have a different vision and people both for and and rightly so and and so they have to have have their day in the sun and they have and and and you can look back and say what if well what else.

"Everybody knew him because he had done that so often and he said to me, Tommy. Reaffirmed what happened to be at the Chevrolet dealership back and Montella. And and President Bush says Tommy never ever forget where you come from. And that's why I had never forgotten about Elroy never forgotten about my basic lessons in politics. And that's what. Doug was so good to to capture is. But can I tell them about how I built my? Hi, built Elroy in the centre thing, we'll get there. My talking to watch. I was gonna ask about Froehlich and the assembly I wanted to well, okay. Yeah. But you get elected the assembly the Republicans are in the majority, but you owe nobody nothing, but the leadership they're all wants your vote needs your vote to elect them speaker. Yeah, we had the Republicans had gotten defeated by Gaylord Nelson. And then ninety six. Republicans came back with war Knowles as governor, and I was running and when I ran in the in the primary everybody down here in Madison was supported Louis rebel. Because he was the incumbent and nobody would support me. I didn't have any money. Louis had plenty of money because I they never expect me to win. And nobody else did either. And couldn't people in Elway. And my father was you only one sometimes I questioned whether he bought it for me. But. But the truth was I didn't have anybody supporting me and everybody supported Louis. Louis your mouth. So when I won the primary everybody wanted, of course to come up. And who's Tommy Thompson and say come to meet me, I got my first donation back, then you can take some cash I got fifty dollars in cash and a bunch of stamps. I don't know. So I wrote it down some. Some somebody down here and Madison. And so everybody was trying to find out who Tommy Thompson was because Republican area and they thought I was going to win. And so I get win. But then the Republicans won control the assembly. So the number one position in the in the assembly, of course is the speaker, and there were four candidates running for speaker, Paul Alfonsi, maybe a name some of you. Remember and herald Clements who later became. Secretary of treasure herald Froehlich and Curtis McKay and eventually Curtis McKay draft out with Froehlich herald Clemens was there and Paul Alfonsi dropped out. And what was aero Clements? And so it was almost there was there was fifty fifty one Republicans so twenty-six is going to win. And so Naro fairly comes to Elroy to meet me. Now, he didn't support me. And so he comes in. And I still remember I was in in the front room on my mother's house and herald freely knock three o'clock in the afternoon. Even remember the time he came in and he sat down, and he said, you know, I'm running for speaker. I say, yeah, everybody's called me about it. He said, I need your vote. Nice. Well, that's good. So do they? And he says he says one because server, and I said, well, I'm a conservative to he said, well, you support me I says, I'll tell you what I'll do if you put me on joint finance committee, and there's a freshman put it on joint finance who never got they wouldn't put any freshman joined five, but I know I was young and nobody would pay any attention to me. But if I was joined finance they had to. So I had been around the capital long enough that I was playing politics. And so I told Froehlich put me if you want me at my book, put me on joint finance committee, and he said can't do that. No freshman gets on join finance. That's the that's the let you have to do if you let my vote. Nothing happens about a week later. He calls up, and he said, I'm considering putting you on joint finance. I said well when you make up your mind, call back. We clayton. He calls back as well. I've decided to put you on finance. I said, I'm avoiding says, you're my thirteen foot. Abe. Remember that it was his thirteen. Three days before before the vote, and it was it was twenty six to twenty five. And. Both sides thought they had one and and Fraley calls me three days before the vote. And he says John Chubais doesn't trust. You doesn't think you're going to vote for me? And I said, well, you're gonna put me on finance to. Yes. Well, then I'm one point. And so he said, okay. And so the day of the election everybody everybody was saying Froehlich one. Everybody says herald Clements was at a win was twenty six to twenty five Harold Froehlich one by one twenty six to twenty five and so he called me up, and he said, well, he said going back to put you on finance. I said, absolutely. And so he did that's how I got joint finances a freshman, and it was it was interesting times. Tommy Thompson, former governor Doug Moe, co author the book tummy, we jump ahead a bit. And and Jan Shabazz gets a federal judgeship, and you become assistant you become minority leader of the assembly in the early eighties, right? Tony Earl was elected eighty two. You were thinking about running for governor. But you stick to your run on increasing the number of Republican assembly seats in eighty four right? Can you talk about that? And how it took you around the state. I decided I was I wanted to run for governor. And I knew nobody knew where Elroy Wisconsin was nobody knew who Tommy Todd. How can you run for governor? The first name I Tommy. I mean, let's face it. It's does it give you a great deal of confidence with a with a name my Tommy. But anyway, I knew I had to get around the state to get people to know me. And I also do that in the election and the sixty four. Eighty four was going to be a crucial one, and we were Republicans in the assembly only had forty seats only had forty seats. And I went to the convention Republican convention, and then people were asking you're going to run for governor against Tony and eighty six and I said only if I can increase considerably the number of seats in the assembly, and I still remember Tom Loftus Antonio saying they like me, but they says Tommy you've made a terrible mistake and hit the press at Tommy Thompson is putting his stake on running for governor, Mike increasing the number of seats in the assembly. And so I went around I had three beautiful charming women with me one was Barbie Benson from Portage who was representing the Republican party. And she always wear these flamboyant flamboyant, hats, you remember remember when you go to the Kentucky Derby, all those big she had a hat for every occasion. Like this. And I she went around and shoot fly up, and I'll be be was was the caucus chairman. I had pointed her caucus secretary and Diane harm lake was my administrative assistant and Barbie would fly in and. Diane and AVI be and myself, I would sleep, but they would drive in plot out the things, and we will go around and recruit candidates and raise money for the assembly. Nobody thought everybody wanted to give money to the Senate because they didn't think we had a chance in the assembly and so. I went around and Butch Johnson was a big logger up in Hayward. And he called me. And he says if you bring that woman up here to Hayward was that Big Hat said, I'm gonna disown you. We're not going to give any money to you. She had big high heels in a Big Hat, and and so we went up there. And she was with me, and she charmed the whole thing was all lagers and other thing she she was hit. And we we raised a lot of money in there. And we got some good candidates. And I went around all around the state getting my name out there recruiting candidates raising money for the candidates. So all these Republican candidates at one in eighty four we picked up eight seats, and it was the biggest story. Lee Sherman grave said that that was the biggest story that wasn't written. Was the fact that Tommy Thompson and his team engineered eight seats. We didn't take over. But we came so close to running getting control that everybody said it was a tremendous accomplishment. And that's set me in a tremendous position. Because the Republicans in the house really loved me because I raise money for him and organiz so these assembly individuals forty eight of them now where my field force. They were the individuals that campaign for me when I ran for governor eighty six raise money brought me into their organizations and everything, and that's how I was able to build a statewide organization much to the chagrin of the candidates Iran against me, much, more organized and one thing about me. Nobody's ever given me every thought that I was going to win every one of my elections. Everybody thought I was going to lose and. Including those individuals that didn't think I could take over control of the assembly and all I ever wanted to do was win become speaker. I never wanted to be governor. I wanted to be speaker of the assembly, but when I knew I couldn't be come speaker of the assembly could never get enough Republicans elected the assembly, that's what I decided to run for governor. So Eighty-six going down to the wire against Tony Earl. Very good story. I think Henry Meyer told you that he thought that Kenosha mayor might. John Bellotti is his name. John Villani had won the election of mayor by one vote and Henry buyer was a member member Henry, my mayor of Machi, wonderful guy, big almost a socialist democrat. And it was proud of his democratic heritage and pass. But he couldn't stand. Tony earl. And because Tony was going to put a prison. Milwaukee's MA. Remember that? And so. Twenty-one wouldn't back off of that. So Henry Meyer called me up and says come on over abortion. Can you? Imagine Henry Meyer, who's never supporter Republican in his life. Called me up out of our way to come over to have me come over. So he could support me. And so I talked to him for a while. And he says I won't build a prison in Milwaukee, Mr Mayor, and he's as good I'll support you. And he said, I think I get the Kenosha mayor to support you. And so he called it. The man says this young Tommy Thompson wants to come over and have lunch with you and be a friend to me and and meet with him. He's a good guy and I'm supporting so I went to connotion. And you gotta realize can OSHA at that time. Kenosha superior Milwaukee. The most democratic then Madison most democratic communities of the state and Kenosha all time Democratic Union bosses in supporters, and they never never elected a Republican. So I went down there. Henry Meyer who had just won his mayors didn't want to be seen with me. So I he says come into the parking lot. Now, here's this guy. A mayor comes out of his office with a hat. We're like this. Shoulder on his head. He comes over knocks on the window. I got driver John trees. And he says you Thompson. No, I'm the driver. I'm john. Comes around the car. Mayor. Tommy thompson. I can't shake your head. Somebody might see me. I'm going to go back in that Saigo. Emily would open come on in the Saigo. Do you want me going? Oh, no, wait, five minutes. And don't talk to anybody. So you went in said what what they fired by like what the hell's going on here? My her set me up for so I went in. And I said we go for lunch. She says, no, I ordered sandwiches. So I went in and. In the door. But of course, being Tommy Thompson, I shook have everybody. I could see I went up a gun. And then I walked up to Steph was shaken has everybody, and he came on his don't you don't you? And then he came in. And he said anybody see, I don't know. A long story short. I went in there. We had a sandwich, and I says, well, what can you do for me? He says, well, I can support you. But I can't do it publicly. Can you put out a fundraiser? No. I can't do that. Can you go down the street? I no I can't do that. Can you do it? Well. I can talk to some Republicans. I said, okay. And I don't know if you've ever talked to me, but immediately after I got elected, I got a call from John Belotti San supported your Tommy can I get a job. And I gave him one. I don't think he ever he ever wants did Italy. But it was funny. Can you imagine the mayor coming down like this? So nobody would see him because he didn't want to be seen with a Republican. But it was. The side of the times. Good from the two thousand eighteen Wisconsin book festival. Tommy Thompson, his book tummy, my journey of a lifetime in Dubai co author Doug, Moe. Have to skip some things I do wanna get them running out a little low on time. So a couple of Washington stories. Okay. I think important to talk about your day on nine eleven. You were coming in. In the car when the first tower was hit, right? I'm not going to get to talk about ROY my thing. Yeah. Right on the heels of the nine eleven, okay. Nine eleven happened at all of us.

That is the longest streak since will Chamberlain back sixty three sixty four. So this is this doesn't happen. Very often. Yes. -nificant store stuff was he went one for seventeen from three the other night Sunday. Maybe so I was like, oh, that's. Snap. Don't even pay attention. And then I see that he's still managed to score forty in that game for the game. He's I don't know. But James harden to be consent me James harden is an unbelievably good score. He can score and he can score on anybody. But for him to have the kind of legacy that he wants whenever it's time for him to be done. He's got to. He's got to have more success in the postseason. It just has to happen. Yeah. Maybe he'll end up. You know, getting traded to a like a warriors team by speaking of the warriors, man what a blow out last night that was settled in this game. And I blinked and was twenty four to eleven and I'm thinking, that's okay. Denver long game. And it at the end of the first quarter. It was fifty one to thirty eight that was the most points ever scored in NBA history in an opening quarter. They had fifty one points. I don't wash a lot of NBA in the regular season. But I know the nuggets are doing well. Twelve th straight home games with wins. Until last night. I'll tell you what the last night because Denver Denver fell asleep a little bit early defensively. And then they all started rolling for the warriors. Right. I mean Klay Thompson was hitting and Steph curry was hitting and the big the big fellow was hitting them. I'm like this.

They show you what good is beaten him before they came in and said, okay, it's time to show you what this is all about have our full attention. Exactly. And and. Yeah. And when the playoffs come it's a whole different game. I looked up hardens box score in that lost the magic on Sunday. They lost one sixteen zero nine he was eleven of thirty two from the field one of seventeen from three. And then fifteen sixteen at the line so eleven of thirty two so he made a bunch of. Is two pointers and a bunch of free fifteen from two point range in great at the free throw line, which is at one and seventeen is historically bad. I think he tied someone else's gonna want to seventeen Starks did that in the finals right for Houston. I mean against Houston for the Knicks. Yeah. They wouldn't put relondo Blackman just take a couple of shots. So you watch a lot of basketball, you watch the nuggets a lot. Yeah. They're obviously better. But do you think that they they're ready to compete for a title? I think I think that I mean, I could create a scenario honestly that they could find themselves in the Western Conference finals. I think they've got a good young team. They play well together. I mean for the most part they're much better defensively this year, they didn't play very good defense last night. But that happens at times, especially with that crew they were playing, but I don't think they could be Golden State in seven game series and the playoffs. I mean, if everybody's healthy and plain Houston has got off to a horrible start. Now, they're playing better. They've been doing it without Chris Paul so Houston's going to factor in there too. But Denver, I think is right there. You know, I think I think it'd be an interesting they have a hard time matching up with Houston. But I wouldn't make it a no-hoper they played the rockets in the seven game series. And I think anybody else in the west I think they'd have a chance to beat seems like in the NBA you have to have at least one superstar on your team nowadays, you have to have like three sometimes two or three and the nuggets don't have a superstar yet. Well, Yokich Yokich you call him a superstar. Absolutely, really, absolutely. I think he may become one. But I don't think anybody around the league knows who he is. Well, I I would say in the country. I mean, well, maybe not in terms of NBA fans because he plays in Denver. Right. But I think I think NBA people know who he is Charles Barkley. I heard on TNT probably a couple of weeks ago, say listen, right? I would vote for him right now is the MVP. I heard that as well. And he got my attention. Yeah. Big time. Because I think you gotta have that one guy that can take over a game. On. They've got a bunch of good players to really good players. Right. I mean Jamal Murray is going to be a real. I mean, he's a really good player. They've got guys. But they don't have as you said. I mean, all the great teams you look at Golden State that seems a bit unfair with what they have Houston. I mean, Chris Paul's a great player, James Harden's. A great player superstars club Capellas. Really good player. Right. So it'll be interesting. But I do think the nuggets can make a deep run this year into the player. Okay. Well, that's encouraging. Yeah. That'd be fun. Longtime nuggets have never won the title. But it's been quite a while since they got to the finals the Western Conference finals eighty-five. Wow. Didn't they do under George Karl? But they never be conference by the Lakers. Always. Okay. Yeah. I don't think. Hey, Brandon George didn't get them to the Western Conference finals. Right. Oh, nine with Chauncey. Trevor REEs kept stealing the pass. The Lakers that that was my apologies. Yeah. They got. They got there and eighty five that got beat by the Lakers Matombo. No. That was the English isel and fat leever enhanced didn't they get to win Matombo was here. And then he was just when they made the playoffs. Yes. When they they were the eighth seed they beat Seattle that year, the number one. The George Carlin was the coach I was doing the nugget TV, Pakistan back and forth. And then they play Utah in the next series. Seven games went down with down three games to none. Then won the next three games. Took him to a game seven in lost in Salt Lake. I remember living in L A in the eighties. When the Lakers were just so must have been just so much fun, then and then looking at the nuggets from afar, and like, wow. These guys are good. Yeah. I remember thinking these guys are really good scored a lot of points. But the Lakers were always better. That was Doug Moe was Doug, the Doug believe that what the Lakers disliked most was a team that would cause the Lakers wanted to run and run a lot of teams tried to slow them slow it down Doug believed. What they don't like. Is you run back at them? They run we run. And it was really entertaining defense. But it was entertaining basketball five twenty six what break here for some news. You're listening to Lewis and Logan, this KOA NewsRadio. There are some things that you just can't.

"Do you? Remember, can you look it up? I think it was digits. It was historically. Yeah. It was historic. Wasn't. It was plus ten point eight, and although San Antonio was right behind them at plus ten point six that year. And how many it San Antonio when they won like sixty sixty seven. Yeah. It was it was their all time record. So so all right. So ten point eight San Antonio when sixty seven games ten point nine or whatever Golden State wins seventy three games, the Milwaukee Bucks right now are plus eight point eight eleven point eight and they are fourteen and five. So yeah. I mean, they the defect that they've won so many blowouts and they've only been bad in close games. But only okay, I think it may be throwing people off the send a little bit is how good is to how good this team is. Well, they have a they have they have had a lopsided home schedule. They've had the most home games played like pretty much the entire tire season this point. And they're they've played five more home games and they've played away games. And this is one of the things that, you know, I think Doug, Moe. We talked about Doug Moe, a few like last week about how dogma was ahead of his time and points per possession and stuff Doug, Moe, always said that really the way that you. Evaluate the standings. Like if you wanna go to midseason and try to determine the skied standings. Is you take home losses? What was it? You know, this pelton, you take you. It's road. Winds might as home losses road. Winds minus home losses, and whatever that differential is that's kind of how you project out the season. So if you look at that, the the bucks have four road, winds and two home losses. So they would be a quote, plus two that you look at a team like the raptors they have eight road wins and two home losses. They would be a plus six. You know? So it's a way to try to evaluate how the imbalance of of schedules. Go, and you you look at a team like the Sixers. They have four road wins in one home loss. So you know, they have a plus three. So they would technically be a head of the bucks in this regard. The interesting thing is kind of one of the issues of it. If you've played a really home lopsided schedule. Will you don't have a lot of changes to get road winds? See you can't really build that up. That's that's one of the limitations. But it's fascinating this in this particular example, is that Milwaukee has played a lot of really good teams at hold in Toronto played a lot of week teams on the road. So. Road games to Milwaukee. One state. You know, the overall strength of schedule metric I have so far this year, Milwaukee he's been about average and Toronto has played the second easiest schedule in the league so far. Okay. Fair point. I will say that. Milwaukee has the number one offense in the league. And let's see where they rank defensively. They are defense. -fensive six defensively. They're fascinating the Portland gained the other night. I think that, you know, the one hundred forty three points, and I can't remember exactly I think there were nine of thirty nine from three or something like that. Like their ability to score points in the paint. Despite really not being that good of a shooting game. Now that put up a ton of threes, but they don't necessarily make a lot of them. Like, they one of the most unique offense is I feel like the NBA right now. And I think that we're years game that they won in Golden State. They had eighty four points in the paint that game, but that's just obscene while you have one of the I mean, they're the anti Celtics. The Celtics can't get any points on the pain. It's one of the reasons why their offense is so bad. They have nobody who really wants to get to the foul line. They have limited shock creator. They've all this talent. By the way. I was reading Tim Bontemps story from Dallas. Kyri flicked at the young kids again. He's done this a couple of times it was kind of low key. But he was like, you know, we I can't remember the exact quote, I I'll get it. But. I don't wanna make this Celtics discussion because we're gonna Jackie I'm later this week and. But anyway, he did it again. Kyri is flicking at them..

"And he doesn't get the credit for it. Well, he also doesn't get what he also said he said cafeterias or my favorite place to eat out. A lot of people wouldn't be caught dead in a cafeteria. But we're else can you inspect it prepared Andre before ordering it that is the great Doug Moe there. But do you do you agree with that? The entrees are not always desirable. Cafeteria seven, you know, the efficiency of the food is relatively low. Yes. The food is so bad. But in such large portions. ESPN cafeteria. Then the quality is terrific in addition to that that feature. Well, that's certainly how we eat the NBA every night. And let's just say that the food and the NBA arenas is at least for the media is not is not strong. I actually I came across that quote because I was looking for a Doug booklet where you actually talk about what you were talking about which is that, you know, in his classic self deprecating ways. Like, hey, people say were last on defense. Yeah. We just have more possessions. I don't I'm not a smart guy. But I know enough to know that points per game is a stupid stat mean Doug, Moe was the first guy publicly inside the game to say points per game is a stupid way to evaluate offense defense as that was the quote, I was looking for. And so I googled, Doug, Moe close. Instead, I get a quote about a cafeteria. Which makes sense because to to take serious accurate, you know, who kind of popularized the idea of points perfect session. By tan. Tony now Dean Smith way back in or Carolina wrote about this in a book. He did they used it for years. So all of his his, you know, his former players who ended up becoming coaches in the NBA. We're kind of a head of the curve on that. I see. All right. So pelt anything else? Got you interested. I mean, we should probably talk about the Milwaukee boxing. How bad I mean. You know, they got a great win last night in Denver. The fact that they've lost a couple of close games, including overtime to the the clippers the Dave afford. Staples has maybe thrown people a little bit off the sense, they're second in the Eastern Conference. But in terms of point differential, you know, in terms of net rating their hair head of the Golden State Warriors so far for number one in the NBA. And I think it has anything to ask the question of you know, how sustainable their start is going to be can I just take thirty second time out it'll be longer than thirty seconds. But then again, so are thirty second timeouts in the NBA. And can I rail about league pass right now? Do you guys have a problem with that? I know that I'm gonna I'm gonna here. I'm probably going to hear from the league office on this. And I don't care. All right. I have a problem with leap pass. So last year the sexy been the case for a few. Two years. I live in Omaha Nebraska, and I know that nobody cares about Omaha, Nebraska and the care, but it, but it points to a larger issue, and I have a friend who lives in Pittsburgh who can't watch the Cavs games. And he can't because he's got the same issue. All right. So I get some regional Oklahoma City thunder games and some regional FOX regional games of the of the timber Timberwolves. It's the same channel some nights. I get one some nights. I get the other all of them are blacked out on the pass. And in the in the spring comes around, and there's Kansas City Royals preseason games. Sometimes I get none of them in their black out. All right. Well, this has been a burden now this year out of nowhere for no reason. I can understand. I don't get Denver Nuggets games. Good thurs. I am an eight hour drive from Denver Colorado is an hour and twenty five minute flight. It's hundreds it's five five hundred miles. There is there is no possible way.

"They've dropped four by a tenth of a point. Like, this is what we know about the Denver Nuggets of recent years. They were twenty-third last year. They were twenty nine the year before I mean, basically the book is we know when this incarnation of the Denver Nuggets is really interesting young team. But can't defend they get Paul Millsap back. So that's real palm those. That's great Venice, these versatily strong van multiple positions. But like is the let's raise the team from twenty third to third. Good so Kevin or the Denver Nuggets going to be a top five or even a top ten defensive. Sees is that small samples is theater or is that like a big old production. That's going to run for many years. That's probably more small sample size theater than it is. It is something that's going to be sustainable, and you know, they were they were much higher a couple of games ago. Even though they haven't dropped four in terms of the rankings. They're much closer to the rest of the pack. And then offense, you know, kinda it's weird because I don't think that they're start with flukey. I think that how they were succeed started the season was fluky because we think of them is this all offense no defense team. And that's you know, maybe a little unfair with Millsap. I think they that is the ghost of Doug Moe in our consciousness, by the way. Yeah. Yeah. My expectation was that they were gonna be they could be maybe average on defense this year and top-five on offense, and that would be a pretty potent combination. And I still think that's probably what we're looking at because, you know, in terms of so one thing I'm looking at a lot of the season is the second spectrum data that we have access to at ESPN. You have your your shot quality kind of based on where the shots are. Taking what kind of shots they are. And then how close nearby defenders are and Denver at the early part of the season was really under performing their shot quality on offense. Well over it on defense, and we started to see those to even out a little bit of the last few games. I'm glad you mentioned Doug, Moe, Kevin because Doug, Moe, does not get the credit that he should from modern MBA fans. When was he the head coach was the early eighties? Yeah. And you know this team's plane Denver he thought they had an altitude advantage. And so he wanted to play uptempo. He didn't. I don't think he framed it as points per possession. Like people do today to explain the math. But one of the things that Doug Moe, tried to do is he believed that if you could get twenty shots more per game than your opponent. And I think he felt like the magic number was about one hundred shots if they could get up a hundred shots in forty eight minutes and roughly get twenty more shots in their opponent that that was the formula that was required to be victorious. And so his teams played kind of the style of basketball that we see today, and you know, he was kind of a head of his time in that regard..

I think this was the first movie that was like fucking, we're going for. We're just, here's the all star team. I think it has the most.

"W. e. the other piece that I'm glad you guys devoted so much space to are the point shaving scandals of the fifties and sixties and in particular, what it did to Connie Hawkins who was and Roger Brown and Doug Moe, but really, Connie Hawkins should be. Like a doctor j. level household name and instead lost six years of his prime. Part of the I I know that at ESPN were having discussions about like, how do we sell a movie to our viewers that's so much about the fifties and sixties. But like that is a riveting story that has to be told like what happened to Connie Hawkins and Roger bound is so wrong, and you guys really bring it out in the book I mean, and you mentioned he quit. He could have been Dr j. before Dr. I mean, Dr j. tells a story in the book about he first learned about Connie Hawkins when his junior high coach sees him pick up the ball, he's sees his hand and says, hey, little hawk, he says, well, who's hawk? That's Connie Hawkins. He's got the same big hands as you so that it really is that it's there. Yeah. And so for those who don't know, Connie Hawkins was a great high school player from New York City. He was going to go play in college, but before we ever got a chance, you got a call from the DA's office. He had to go back to New York City. He had no idea why he was interrogated left in a room for that. That's not an exaggeration. He was interrogated for three days, not able to put it out. I want to call my mother because he have known a Jack Molina's, Jack Molina's vob associated. So Jack Molina's was appoint shave. He actually played for the Detroit Pistons and got banned from the NBA because of his point shooter. That'll do it. They'll get right in and he was imprisoned. He was imprisoned at this time and he they, he, there was no question that Connie Hawkins, Roger Brown were seeing Jack Molina's driving around in his convertible. Everybody saw them in the summertime and Connie Hawkins is the first to admit that Jack Molina's, we give him money from time to time pocket money. He did borrow some money from Jack Molina's. When he he got his advance on his student loan scholarship money and went home is like a big spender and spent it all, and then realized, oh my God, what have I done and needed to borrow? I think it was two hundred dollars from Molina's. Paid them back, went back to school, his brother repaid the loan for him. So the idea of Connie Hawkins shaving points. He hadn't played a game yet. He hadn't played a college game, then he'd never lost a high school to high school game. So. How on earth could he have shave points? So the star and other star who's since passed? I'm sorry to say rods. Littman, his attorney, I thought was unbelievable. It was unbelievable, and she has since passed by the way Connie Hawkins systems pass. We were fortunate enough to have his interview in this book as well. But my favorite part of this whole Connie Hawkins thing was when this this attorney Roz Litmanen in her husband decided to try to exonerate Hawkins one night. Her husband came home and he said, well, we're going to interview Jack Molina's tonight. She said, oh, so we're going to prison. He said, no, no, we're, we're going to restaurants, he's well. He's in prison. So I show up at this restaurant there waiting for this Jacqueline Lee is he comes in, he's not in prison garb. He's got a girl on his arm and two guards from the prison standing there, watching them eat dinner with Roslin and her husband, and then they took them back to prison after the interview was over. And in that interview Molina's said, you know, I never ask Connie Hawkins to shave points. I never asked him to do any of that. It's this nightmare kind of situation that we sort of associate with. Documentaries about, you know, injustice in the in in the legal system and and cops sort of sweating, sweating out, sweating, confessions out of people sort of kids..

ROY is brought in since two thousand fourteen, which was the DO pens in Justin, Jackson Joel berry class, and that class was even a little underwhelming because Jack Justin Jackson was the only five star guy in that class in THEO in Joel were sort of four star fringe guys that you know, got the McDonald's all American bump because they were going to North Carolina, but Koby white regardless of what school he was going to have. Kobe, white. You know, it was going to Kansas. I would've told you that Kobe white was a legend in the state of North Carolina. As far as high school he broke, he broke my great uncle scoring record. You know the North Carolina scoring record. He literally has just been all over like the McDonald's, all American game. Everyone. Was talking about him in practice, how amazing he looks. He just very cool calm. Compose has handled for days. Shoots the ball, like no other point guard. I've seen in north China history that has that sort of speed. They sort of grow into that like Tilerson's jump shot came by the time. He was his third year on campus. Kobe has a jump shot. And that's sort of the exciting part about this team and then obviously have in seventh in these older guys that are in the building. I don't know. It's a formula for success. I'm not saying that they're going to be a team that comes out and it's just, you know, automatically the number one team in the country. I think they're going to take their bumps and bruises over time. But I think that they have the right formula for for ROY to win, and they're doing the whole. So this weekend, I don't know if you saw this weekend. ROY Williams had his big, the North Carolina. Basketball family came to Chapel Hill, and they named the court after ROY Williams, which we joked about. You're asking me why they named the court after him. He finally gets a court a unveiled as the road Williams court, and all these guys come back into town and this is the real Carolina basketball family. You get Muktar injury like playing golf with. David? No. Well, you got Rasheed Wallace playing pickup games, you know, with Danny green in the building. Honestly, the most upsetting part to me was that Michael Jordan wasn't there. James worthy wasn't Darren, Sam Perkins weren't there. I'm sure there's a million, a myriad of reasons why they weren't able to make it back, but every single other Carolina basketball player that you could ever think of that really matters were was back in Chapel Hill. This weekend. I saw a picture of Doug Moe with with ROY Williams, which I mean, I people may not even know. Doug Moe is, but you know, if you ask anyone that's fifty years old or they'll tell you how amazing that is that he's around Mitch Cup check was back in town and enrolled LIAM's just taking pictures with everybody. You know, unfortunately, we shot McCann's couldn't make it, but everyone else is in the Carolina basketball family. Were there back in Chapel Hill. Having a great time we miss Larry Brown, of course, but the names are around and you know the, the people that were that were bouncing around through the system. Bobby Frazier, sitting me videos, ROY Williams, playing golf at Finley, I, it was just it was a great time for for all the people that are excited about Carolina basketball this year, and it got me excited. And then you told me you want to talk about it, which you got even more excited..
