"Well, I mean, we're a means to an end if nothing else. Because we're still and this could veer into the conversation. Again, it's maybe it's part and parcel of what I was talking about with how people consume what they consume. Where do you find it? Content's content wherever it lives. And there's still a space for the old media or whatever the hell I'm doing. And I can also dip my toe in the other thing as well. But I couldn't be more pro draymond being in charge of his voice. Absolutely. Using it to amplify things he finds interesting have interesting conversations in ways that he could have them that I could not as a peer of guys in the league. And the thing I love genuinely love about draymond is that I truly think he is, it's like a Charles Barkley. I think he's draymond at all times. I think he doesn't have to edit himself and doesn't. I think he's the version of himself. He always wants to be and good for him because not many of us can say that. You know, we have to kind of put on a different outfit for a different room or a different setting and we have to be a more sanitized version of ourself. I think draymond is like, I'm gonna be me. And if you don't like it, even better, 'cause I'll be meat louder. So good for him and all the things he's doing. And I, I'm gonna be me and I want the attention is also a big part of it. Look, I mean, yeah, you don't do and you don't put yourself out there if you don't, if you don't want the attention and you're not afraid about what type of attention you get. You know, some people only want to teach you. That's the key. If it's adulation, you know, if they're there to kiss your ass. If somebody is there to say, hey, no, this is nonsense or whatever. Yeah. I don't think it troubles him, which is, and that's rare too, because it pisses a lot of people off if you get attention that isn't sort of a flowery. I said this on the podcast. It was either last week or two weeks ago. My buddy, solicita, who does a radio show on WFAN comes on every week and does a segment with me at the end of this podcast.

"And something came up about Stephen and I said, well, he's new media too, right? Because draymond said, and I guess what draymond actually said? Was it sometimes he's new media? I don't give a shit who's what? Because here's the thing, Jimmy. Years and years and years and years ago when deadspin, the first one with will leach came out. Yeah, yeah. I realized it seemed very obvious to me that this we're all in the pool together here. And there was, I think people in the more traditional lanes initially just looked, it was the tired joke about people in their parents basement. Right. Well, no, actually, this is a voice that has an audience. And it carries weight. Now, they do whatever they want. And you can argue about whether or not they should be doing things they do. And where are the lines? Well, they kind of aren't any. But it seemed clear to me, and I said as much. There's no us in them. There's just us. And I think now, as it relates to media, there's no new and old, because people that are an old media are doing the new media, and people that are in new media are cutting through in ways that people in old media didn't think they ever would, maybe many years ago, right? So I guess all I'm saying is, whenever Steven a is, he exists in both lanes and draymond clearly is his content cuts through in his podcast or with me. I wasn't hurt by it. Like I didn't take it to be that he was mad at me. Just sort of correcting the semantics. And it didn't trouble me. I mean, whatever. However, draymond frames what Stephen a Smith is or what he is or what any of us are. It doesn't feel important. I think it's important that he has that place where he wants to do his thing..

"It's Twitter and I mean, we got to move on. It's not real life. I want to get into draymond to piggyback off stuff because you had an interesting interview with him. But since you brought it up, we're going to go right off the highway here and since you mentioned it, do you have a favorite all time favorite James Corden, carpool karaoke? I go back to the original, I think it was the original with George Michael, just because I don't know where people are on George Michael God rushed his soul, but like, watch that dude sing at Wembley when he did at the Queen tribute, watch him sing somebody to love. That guy could go, man. I mean, and I think that launched it because James Corden can really sing. And the moments, there are all these little moments where you see the person who he's with, realize, I think it was like Adele. You see Adele, look at him like, oh, this guy can sing. I just think that me and you are getting tweets liked. He's singing with Adele and it was looking at him. I'm like, oh my God, this guy can sing. I think that he's that little lane of his was just such a brilliant window into having the balls to sing next to Adele in a car. 'cause you gotta go toe to toe. You gotta think you can do it, you know? You wanna try to hit the high notes and I don't know. There's been, there's been so many of those that were funny. But again, I go back to George Michael and think, I think that was the first one he did, and then that. So that was for anyone who doesn't know the George Michael and he did for, I think it was like a benefit charity thing they did in England. It wasn't part of his CBS Late Show. The first one he did here was with Mariah Carey. Right. But the George Michael thing, that the snowflake at the top of the hill that becomes the avalanche, right? That was the birth of it. That was the inspiration. As I understand it. But we had him on during the pandemic. And I said, I know this is a terrible question that's impossible. But is there one, you know? It was Paul McCartney, like when Abby wrote, I think it was, and it's like, how do you make that make sense if you're him, you know what I mean? You're in a car with the beetle. Right. Driving down that road singing the song. Yeah, it's funny because McCartney just had his 80th birthday over the weekend. And I actually went and rewatched that carpool karaoke and it one point they're singing let it be and James Corden tears up and it makes him think of his father, grandfather. James Corning gets a lot of shit online, like a lot of people do, but that's one I don't understand. You don't have to think he's funny. You don't have to like his show, but it is weird that he gets so much shit. It's just like a nice guy doing a talk show. What are we heating on that for? Well, but whatever. That's just the way the world works. We talked about this and when it comes to social media and how people behave and it's typically not how people actually behave. So I think you just kind of just keep it moving, you know? Right. So back to the NBA warriors, postgames. You had draymond on. One second, we have a very important question. Yeah, go ahead, buddy..

Joey Sulipeck Investigated for Tweet Against Draymond Green

"Let's talk about Joey solo pack. Now, you know Joey, you were a meteorologist, your weather guy here in the Memphis area for a very long time before switching over and doing the right thing and coming to radio. Exactly. Exactly. I knew joy for I've known Joey for over 20 years. We did not work at the same station, but I would see him at conferences. I would see him locally and he's always been professional. He's the kind of guy that will walk up and ask you and know, you know, your family's name, how they're doing. He's the kind of guy that you want in the market. So he's a good guy. Very much so. So he's a big Memphis Grizzlies fan, and of course, there was a lot going on. It was a pretty tense rivalry between the warriors and the grizzlies. And he wrote a tweet. Yes, he did. And this goes all the way back to May 7th, and this was when the grizzlies were in the second round against the Golden State Warriors and draymond green is a troublemaker on the court. He runs his mouth a lot, he'll push, he'll nudge whatever he can to get an advantage. And one of the grizzlies players had just gotten ejected for the first time that they had mouthed off to the official. Joy writes, chew on this, draymond runs his knuckle dragging open mouth all game long, but mild mannered, Kyle Anderson disputes one call and gets ejected. Next level, Jack assery. That's it. So basically, he was saying the guy's a Neanderthal. Yes, okay. All right. Well, well, the local sports guy for the commercial appeal. Got ahold of that tweet and turned it into this big racial controversy that literally went nationwide. Everybody was talking about poor Joey solo pet who in the aftermath apologized. He should not have apologized. He did nothing wrong, and then deleted his account, he should not have done that. He did nothing wrong.

"Well, we knew how top heavy they are throughout the postseason. Those are the guys that carry this team. And I just felt like those were the guys that, whether you want to say they were exhausted, whether they were too into their head, but they made some crucial mistakes and those fourth quarter stretches, you know, goals they wore as capitalize on that. You're not going to survive games where you committing 17, 18 turnovers, and expect to win. I mean, those are 30, 35 points. You just giving to the Golden State Warriors. And that was no recipe for success. They never cleaned it up after the after the first two games. You know, the turtles was always an issue. Yeah, I remember looking, I think it was game 5. In Golden State and Sean brandy, my broadcast of partner and I had talked about it said, well, what the self attempt to do is clean up the turnovers. And the first possession the sub exact. Jason Tatum flies through, going to his left and throws the ball out of bounds. It's like, dude, you just you just went over what you had to do and essentially failed. But here's the thing about it. I think this was a learning block. It was a platform to learn on. And we'll tailor them and brown be back. Yeah. I think there will be. But also look at the Eastern Conference. Will it be better? How will those guys compete? Because right now they have the summits at the top. And one thing we know that when you're at the top, you're going to be the hunted. You are going to be the hunted. So the summit to be the hunter. And Tatum will be probably more than anybody being the situation where people are going to look at him and judge him fairly or unfairly as the dude on this table. I mean, once that I give you and I'm not big about staffs, but Larry Bird in 1981 during his first championship run. He averaged 15 points a game. Charlotte about 40% from the field. But what did he do? His greatness. And this is where Tatum has to get. Never heard the average 15 rebounds a game. 7 assists and had 42 steals in a 6 game series. So ag is what we didn't see the imprint that Tatum had to put into a building like that. Because of this many times, got killed on the glass and you never bigger, stronger team, Looney did a great job of getting out early, draymond got some of the second chance opportunities. That crushed the Celtics, too. How many offensive rebounds are the goals they warriors come up with, you.

He's a different than her basketball. Our basketball is different. I saw a century Maxwell said. And you know, one thing that baffles me about the 80s or the 90s or whatever you want to call when basketball was so much more physical. And some of the guys that be talking weren't the guys that was punching people. They act like, you know, guys was just walking around the court like, I'm hitting this guy in the know. Respect these years. Yeah. And I'll say this when you look at things you talk about. I'll say this is only been 32 finals MVPs. And damn it, I'm one of them. Talking about me.

"Sort of does it collectively that you don't know where to go in clutch moments and if you're best player and Tatum doesn't have it, you're not sure sort of where to go and also the other downside of that is that okay, maybe my best player doesn't have it. Let's go to number two, which is jaylen Brown. On a lot of other teams, they'd be force feeding jaylen Brown the ball. On this team, it's Marcus smart bombs away. And that, I think, again, can be an issue at times. Again, it's their greatest strength. It can also be their greatest weakness at times and you saw that last night. We of course have Brian Robb covering the Celtics for mass live. Another late night for old B rod behind the glass, give me some of your takeaways and thoughts on last night's game. Am I wrong to put so much on the Celtics in this one or am I right to feel like, oh, no, they had an opportunity here. And they blew it. I mean, there's no question this is going to be the game of the series. You look back on if they lose in terms of like, they had it here. But one thing we haven't talked about yet, guys, which I think was a sneaky big factor in this game. Fourth quarter, Steve Kerr, having the guts to put draymond green on the bench for a big chunk of that and go offense defensive of him down the stretch. That is huge because draymond green has been absolute garbage on offense in this series and is really helped this be able to defend all the rest of the warrior's weapons with him out there. Now with him going to loony over green, the guy who's been a better player in this series, it was bad in game four obviously since they won them the game, but now moving forward in this series, the willingness to do that is not good news for the Celtics in terms of trying to pull this thing out. Yeah. And draymond said what he was livid, right? That he was benched in that fourth quarter. But ultimately was the right call by Steve Kerr. I thought Looney was a factor last night..

And when an assassin tries to take chase out, he learns that to ensure his future, he has to square his past, FX is the old man premieres June 16th on FX. Stream on Hulu, before we go, I'm trying to think of some scuttle butt. What have you heard about, did we cover the finals? I think we did it. We covered the finals, yeah. All right, Celtics are four point favorites. In game four, final Z MVP. There is one other thing. Chris Haynes said he tweeted out Steph Curry says his foot injury feels similar to how he injured it against Boston and the regular season, but he doesn't expect the miss a game. What does that mean? So he re injured the foot? Yeah, he said that 5 minutes ago at his postgame presser. That's from Chris Haines who tweeted that out. Yeah, then Klay Thompson said, Klay Thompson said real class a good job Boston about all the F bombs in front of the kids. I agree. I don't like the F bombs. I wish just did the draymond Trent just to the drink. I don't love the swearing because there were some kids there, you know? Kids don't swear and they got TikTok. His foot injury feels similar to how he injured it against Boston, That's not great. So you think he got hurt on that rugby scrum? Yeah, that's the play. Or draymond was given the stare down afterwards, right? Did anything illegal happen on that play? I don't believe so now. Any scuttlebutt that you hear at these finals the last three games? Yeah, I reported some stuff on the ringer this week on Monday in my article about Utah, had reported. That's a weird one. The bowls are another team that has some interest in Rudy Gobert. I know it was reported today forgive me, I forgot who said it, that the jazz aren't really exploring offers from Mitchell right now, but they are listening about Gobert, which connects with what I've said. It seems like Gobert is a more likely guy, at least at this moment. But we know Danny ainge over the years. He does his due diligence on everybody. So I'm not sure how much to read into that. Other than that, what else do we get? We talked earlier about the sun stuff. The blazers with the number 7 pick seems like they're seeking out a lot of possibilities to move that. They want to help and build around dame. I'm not sure who actually is acquirable. They're talking, they're telling teams about people like Beale and Levine. They're dropping. What's going on with Levine? Why does it seem like he would be available? With Levine I was told that the bulls weren't initially offering the full max. And so there was actually negotiation happening. I think that's changed where the offer will be with a max. But whether Levine takes that or not, that remains to be seen. If you're Zach lavine, there's definitely a lot of teams that would want a young scorer in his mid 20s who can play with and without the ball. Like imagine like Levine could Levine could be plugged on to literally any contender in basketball. Because of his ability to play with him. Yeah, he could have played it in the game. We went to Levine. Think about him on the warriors in place of Klay Thompson, for example. He can do all the off ball stuff coming off the screens and handoffs. He can cut to the rim. He's a major lob threat, but he can also run pick and roll for you. He can handle the ball and run a little bit of offense. So you can plug him into literally any team in the league. Can we just call this trade into the league? Exactly. Where's it going? Zach lavine for Hardin. What's more fun than that? That's a fun trade. He would be great with embiid. Hardin gets his own team again. Levine and Maxie in the backcourt together. And Derozan just goes to Croatia and there's a lot of start to season. Yeah. I mean, poor Derozan, if that were to happen then. Yeah, it's not going to happen. I don't think hard in that is nearly the value. But with the blazers though, I mean, miles bridges, Jeremy grant, just a couple other names that have been connected with them. And you had on Monday, you had the Gobert for vucevic and Patrick. That was kind of like just an idea. It makes sense salary wise. If you're getting go barrier trading, so it's a matter of is the other piece, Patrick Williams. Two high lottery picks for booch and then a third high lottery pick to get Gobert. Or would you be willing to do that? How high are you on that? I would not do that. How about, I think he makes way too much money. I would not feel good about him at all. If you trade for Gobert, you have to be in contention. This is our final move to go over the top to fortify our defense. That's not the bulls. No, it's not. I can understand why they might feel that way. If you have Gobert with demar Derozan and if you're able to keep Caruso and Lonzo and then maybe you've got something going there. We share 8 just as in the solution all the way around. Do you trust eating on a new max contract when he himself said years ago how his goal is to make it to his second contract and is going to be a career and the sons constantly have to push him and motivate him to play at a high level. I'm not sure I would. And maybe Chris Paul is a dick. How do we know? Yeah, sure. The Devin Booker aggregator. Simmons says Chris Paul is there. Devin. Devin Booker's the guy that pushes him. I've heard. He's the.

"And his timing on those is one seemed like a goaltender, but that was that the one that went out of bounds. Yeah, on the curry floor. I mean, it was a pretty good angle on that. It was pretty close. They usually call that a goaltending. So from a Celtics from a strategy standpoint, they really wrote Jalen in the first quarter. And he was great. The first quarter, yeah, only finished the 27. But yeah, what did you see? What were they doing with jail? Because they were trying to get him downhill, trying to get him on pull ups. I mean, in general, whether it was against draymond or somebody else, scheme, too, we saw the warriors over helping a lot of the time. And so they were attacking a matchup knowing help was coming in order to create motion or get the ball movement or to get driving kicks and they did a great job in that in this game. But when Tara was attacking draymond, that was the adjustment the warriors made a game too. They moved draymond off and on to jaylen Brown, defending Jalen Brown did a really good job in that game and yet in this game, they used that against him. So you're going at draymond from the perimeter, so he's out of a help position more frequently. And so I thought the Celtics, they came out looking like a totally prepared team knowing what the warriors did and game two attacking that helped coverage and for draymond. Once again, he had another poor game. Game one looked like a liability game too. He was maybe the second best player on the floor behind Steph Curry and game three a liability again on offense, Celtics obviously aren't worried about him behind the arc. Wasn't really making a difference as a playmaker and then defensively. He didn't read that. Yeah, and defensively, he just didn't seem like he was able to stop jaylen Brown a lot of those drives to the rim. He's draymond green. But the Celtics have attacked him like he wasn't a multi time all defensive guy. It didn't matter. He didn't make that impact tonight. When the Celtics are going, it's weird. They're almost like going at 45° angles instead of immediately downhill. When they're just trying to go straight downhill, they seem to have trouble. But when it's like, guys curling around things or guys going left to right. That's right. When he takes kind of those weird angle layouts, bank shots, right? So that seems to work for them. And then whenever they're just playing with pace, it's great. Third quarter, they just come out and they're just super slow. And you can feel it. The crowd, the crowd down has watched so many Celtic games. Like they are even like Marcus student, the thing they're rolling the ball in bounds, and he's letting it roll to mid court. And it's like, that's the opposite of what we should be doing. We should be flying down there and trying to, especially Steph got four fouls, what, two minutes in the fourth quarter? I just felt like just go up and down, try to keep this pace, but then that was right with the words water. Yeah, it's strange how they fall into those habits. Do you contribute that to this being just a young team or are they just not a smart team? What do you think they're a playoff savviness that they don't have enough accrued savviness yet? They just haven't played enough of these games. But they played a lot of them. This year they have, but it's just like, you know, I think part of it is even that Marcus was good for the most part tonight. But he's not like your typical point guard, like a sense of the momentum of the game, how it's shifting. How many fast breaks did they screw up today? How many layups did they miss? Free throws missed too for that. Free throws missed. It felt like they should have been up 30 in the first quarter or the first half, but you know, that's the thing. 'cause it's logically you think, all right, the words will come back, they'll probably get better calls around in game four and whatever, but I didn't feel like the Celtics played awesome today. What Celtic other than rob, who basically that was what rob looked like in January February March. Williams was better. And jaylen Brown was really good. He actually was good in that stretch. The first half against draymond, he did a really great job. But nobody was like amazing in the game for the Celtics. And I think if I'm the worriers, I'm really nervous about all the layups the Celtics miss. I mean, Tatum must have missed what, 5? Yeah. Four or 5. Just layups. Point blank layups. I don't wear it seemed like he was rushing it because he's afraid to get in fouled and then they missed a bunch of free throws too. Do we know which Jayson Tatum's shoulder as she was the first play of the game he was grabbing at it? I texted a friend of mine who may or may not be employed with the Celtics during the game. And I was like if Tatum had a fucking separated shoulder for the last month and you didn't tell me I'm gonna be furious. I'm just gonna be really mad at you. We're gonna have an issue. You can tell me after the series is gonna be like, oh, by the way, he had a slight separation of his shoulder. There's been moments. Are you hinting at that? No, I have no inside info. I don't know. I've been watching him with this quote unquote stinger that he has. I don't know, what game that I went to that game. That was game three of the Miami series. Yeah, last round. And I went to game three and I've been to I guess four games since and every game. He's doing these weird things. Shaking it. That just don't look like Tatum threes, and then he's fine and I don't know the adrenaline, but I just, I can't figure it out. Would you be shocked if he had a separated shoulder? I don't know what it could be. Or like a separate shoulder, they pop back in, but it's not like maybe it just needs time to heal completely. It could be something like that. Look, what kind of stinger is this? Like UFC fighters don't have anything to talk to doctor Bryan souter the YouTuber. You know him? Let's bring him in. But yeah, he was 9 for 23 again today. 9 assists, I thought he had a good control over the game, but it easily could have been a 40 point game for him. I actually felt like it was sitting there. I liked all the shots he took. And what's weird is since game 6 of the Milwaukee game. Monkey series, which was the best game he's ever played in his life. I don't know if he's played a great start to finish game. I think he's had stretches, he's a quarters. He's also had moments where you feel like he's unraveling a little bit. And.

"You should be dictating the pace to them and you can see it early. Curse trying weird stuff in the first half already with his rotations and substitutions. Recognizing, I got to get a little tricky with these guys. I need to be able to have these lineups out here to score at these times and I can't do this and draymond green was bad in the first half. He really was bad. They were worse with him on the floor. And I think Kerr knew it as well. And he sat for some stretches there. So you could see cursed wheel spinning like what's the right lineup for these guys here? And how am I going to do this? And how are we going to stay in this game? And then Celtics just folded. And again, I just keep looking at this. Sad. It's sad because they're younger. They got weird. Yeah, they should have more energy. They should have more, I want to say like, fight in them because this is like they're kind of like the underdog, the upstart, the guys that had no business or even being in the NBA Finals and used that. Use that energy to show some toughness out there. You know? Punch back. Don't the warriors dictated that entire game it felt like, especially in the second half. The sherrod likely here to show some toughness. And they left. They let draymond run around like it was his party, you know? Draymond had help. Don't get it twisted. Draymond had had help. But was it was it? Was it a bunch of guys wearing black and white stripes? Was that his help? And none of them were Kendrick Perkins this time. Yeah. Here we are. Yeah, yeah, it helps your ride, but my point was that they kind of let and John alluded to it earlier. They kind of let the worst bully them around a little bit. This was a game where you had one team that played with the kind of desperation. You need to have every single game in the finals. And that desperation, being at home, backs against the walls, some questionable officiating. And I'm being very generous when I say that. It led to the self is getting plonked. I mean, as my son is there who's next to me, you can't see said. The toughest guy for the south this was email. Yeah. He was and whenever your coach is like the toughest guy on your squat, you're probably getting your ass kicked. So what I don't get is and the reason I didn't start the rant early because Jimmy and I disagree a little, I mean, I don't but I just don't get why the refs let draymond bully them like that. You know, even before the Jalen Brown thing, which is a textbook technical. Yes, it's shitty to have a guy tossed. He put his feet on top of him and then pushed him. That's a technical 1000 out of 1000 times. I can't believe the officials. I can't believe it was a Steve javi who does it for ABC. He talked about it. I can't believe he sat there and said, we absolutely allow what's happening in the game to influence our opinion. And I was like, what? Like, so it's sometimes. I don't think that's that crazy, John. But that saying the quiet part out loud, Jimmy, okay? I think it's important for the referees to understand the situation. I mean, we've seen all the time. And we see it all the time..

"We're still talking about the fall out of the draymond green kevin durant situation the show. They did in which they both said. Hey it's bob myers and steve kerr's fault why. The dynasty broke up because of the way they handled our disagreement that we had in two thousand eighteen as time has gone on like you see this look draymond. Green is a smart guy. He knows the impact of his words. Is this dream on pulling james harden going you know what whatever conversation we've had the at the olympics when everybody's hanging out. Hey i want out golden state now. Because i want to get someplace else. 'cause you're blowtorch and your gm at your coach something. That was three years ago. I i've not heard tentatively that that was the purpose behind what he said and there remains the possibility that it was simply. I wanna clear my name. And i wanna do something. That's explosive on my first podcast as i prepare myself for my post my post playing career. i do. I will tell you that it did not sit well at all with the warriors and it shouldn't that from either. Yeah from either one of them and it it. It does undermine their authority and moving forward trying to trying to put this team together.

"draymond" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed

"You spill your heart. Would you think nobody would go to find out. This is what you really thought. Well katie thinking. Hold on you angry. That's how you remember this guy who begged him right. You'll you out. I like brought to bear you better than iran and yada whatever he might have to get there in the heat of the moment i'm up said to what and then draymond admitted ever since she left. We've been getting our ass kicked. And they have skipped member got done you have to katie lip his briggs and basically missed the whole year. Clayton supposed to come back and he tears he tears. What is a key leads after tours. Acl so i believe if those guys stay healthy because we saw with stuff capable of doing if clay is they help but the question is is that when you listen to k. d. katie says a just locked in his work and people thought because i wasn't happy go lucky gatt anymore so you weren't locked in the first year you weren't locked in the second year. What chain the change was is gearing up to leave. That's what he got that he likes challenges. He said it wasn't a challenge anymore. It okay see. I think that you saw that you weren't gonna be able to win the championship it. Okay see and you said okay. Let me leave. We're going to discuss him saying that he would do it all over again a latest but i just don't get how how i do something then. I blame box for what may have between me as you would. I would argue fuck. They you have it role. We haley wrong because we don't want to the argument. No i'll give so what i love the most was. There's a little outtake from kevin at the end of the video. That i want it breaks for a second after draymond says that's a wrap right and there's a break in and kevin looks to the camera and says this is going to be an incredible interview. This is going to go crazy right. So he was very pleased with the way it went because draymond let him off the hook right and they managed to blame management for their issues. The start draymond right. Okay so i like. I said i just don't i don't like i'm big into personal responsibility personal accountability. And you know you can't have peace without forgiveness. So i'm glad seemed to be skipped there at peace drama. I don't know why would give forgive katie cup. Katie do anything but it seems very seems to me that katie have definitely forgiven dream on and have moved on. You see the way. They were interacting at the olympics. You see the way they interacted sense. I mean seriously this friend. Yeah yeah so. But i they need they can miss me. They missed me with this. This has nothing to do with steve. Kerr this has nothing to do with. Bob myers it was two guys in the heat of the moment. One guy says something to the other guy that was highly offensive that most most men especially in professional sports is gonna take it going to take receive it just like just like drop throughout the katie. That's how they're gonna look at him and look at him five ways but like i don't know they don't they don't tell like that in the nba. I guarantee you call him the guy in locker room back in the locker room that i came out. Nfl yeah you ain't call guy show we will be free you might be. Free is but you'll have the nook lit up. I just i just the way it works knuckled it. I'm sure they didn't but like i said skip. I mean who. I've seen two guys on offense. I've seen two guys on defense by the same or did you go play. Hey you gotta issue you resolve the issue you try to de escalate before we get to that point better. Not enough like roulette. Okay somebody gets here. Kookaburra guy amendment they you as we joke all the time man just jones but sometimes even yet a shea couldn't even calm down okay. Liberate you guys up. Seems like a lot of things just twenty four minutes that interview. Okay smell think we all like to say no big deal but the truth is little things can really add up and suppressing emotions.

It looks like dak prescott won't play this preseason but despite coming into a year with no reps after a brutal injury and signing a huge contract in the offseason he may not be facing the most pressure of anyone on the cowboys. Zeke elliott has admitted. That his down here last season took a toll on him saying quote. I think the hardest part about last year. Is you feel like you. Let your teammates down. That hurts just having the year. I had last year. You don't need more motivation than that. I just know the type of player i am. I don't think i showed that last year. Got a lot to prove trying away from it. Sheehan is there more pressure on deck. This season or zeke wrote this article. They know damn well. It ain't more pressure on zeke than it is dak prescott. First of all to quarterback everything starts and stops with the man. Just got one hundred sixty million dollar contract seventy five million in his first year. Now it's time for take that next step to show that he was worthy of the contract. That's the way it works. Dacca's coming off an injury and he he's not gonna play and i'm glad i'm glad he's not gonna play because now we can go past where we might we're thinking about it priestley's not that important. We'll know after he doesn't play saturday or whatever they play. He's play the following friday saturday. And we'd be done we disagree. I wanted to september nine. Mccarthy alba said not gonna play stop dancing scale here. The guy that hadn't played eleven and a half months. He's coming off a very serious injury. He's not gonna play in the preseason. Jerry jones was very reluctant to give the contracts demand. Sit right next door. You got me with this one. You wanna go. Jj all the page you told me. There's more pressure on the running back. The quarterback driven lead the the amount of pressure because remembers get the year before.

"draymond" Discussed on First Take

"And how come his name wasn't mentioned at some point is especially when it comes to steph curry. We have an obligation to ask the question. Where the hell was a while. All of this was happening. He is the face of the franchise. I'm just saying well. You said a whole lot there and let me just respond to one piece of it. Which is what you're pointing out to me seems to be that. There is a role for more traditional media in terms of interviewing athletes. The setting the kind of questions that might get asked and the way you can. You would hold their feet to the fire if it was someone interviewing them from. Espn for example. And that doesn't mean that. When i say it's almost like a new era of media that athletes interviewing athletes a form like that where the athlete feels protected. Where they feel safe where they feel also which in one way is not great because there are certain things may be off limits or may not be brought up but on the other hand you will get honest moments. You might not get if they weren't interviewed by another athlete yes. They're controlling the narrative. Moore's lebron does as as many who are now. Involved in invested in their own media companies can control. The narrative and i would agree stephen. That doesn't mean the presence of draymond. Green doesn't crowd out traditional media. But it doesn't mean they're not mutually exclusive. It's adding a dimension that didn't previously exist. You can ask an athlete anything you want but to get a candid response response that that illuminates their feelings about things will usually not be the same as what we saw in. That interview win remind interview. Excuse me max. One less commercial break here guys will get back to this black history. Always the podcast. Come check out the new black history. Always podcast with me clinton. Yates we at the undefeated telling stories that remind people who are as a culture is a living breathing entity in all parts of american society. It's not just history books and social media y'all we contain multitudes and everyone deserves to be heard so listen follow and let's alba conversation. Listen or follow black history always wherever you get your podcast. All right steven. We'll get your final thoughts here on the sit down between k. d. and draymond green. It was twenty four minutes riveting. And i just wanna highlight again. I do find it interesting. And i think it was you who mentioned this earlier that there was no mention of steph curry klay thompson. They just specifically spoke about the brass so that it didn't. They didn't get into whether the teammates got involved or which side they were on etc. Not sure if that was strategic or they just didn't go there and the conversation but any closing remarks that you want to make one number one. I'm unapologetically not a whole klay thompson as accountable. He's had some other issues like his injuries to deal with. He's been incredibly preoccupied remember. He got injured in the same series. That did the draymond got. I'm sorry. katie got injured. And so he's been preoccupied over the last couple of years this is steph curry's fair franchising is the face of the franchise. All i'm saying is that where was he while all of this was going on since katie brought up the comparisons of watching last dance watching players. Get on scottie pippen. Incoming together matter of fact. Max bill cartwright you have people in there crying to scotty pippin like how could you do this to us. That's how hurt they were. That's how down by him. Nobody said anything to to drop off from a player's perspective that we know of okay. So that's the. I'm just saying the question i don't know what steph curry did. I just know that. I find it conspicuous that his name isn't even mentioned in any of this. That's that's that's shady to me. I don't trust that some hard golden state warriors. And not say the word steph right. The other outside of that i just want to applaud. My brother's draymond green and k. d. Listen and they don't have to do this. And you're doing podcasts. And all that stuff. But i appreciate the honesty and i think it's a lesson for all of us in the media to recognize. Listen when you got cats that are going to take the time to talk to you. Not that they were doing that here because they were talking to each other and not the media but prioritize be trustworthy when they tell you something quarterback in its proper context and guard that. Because that's how you see. I can be hardcore and the reason i could be hard hardcore because i know all you got to do is pick up the phone or see me face to face and you have a conversation. I swear to god. If i'm wrong i'm wrong and if i'm wrong publicly i'm not gonna apologize privately. I'm apologized publicly because that's what men do and when you have those kind of conversations and you cultivate that relationship and you make sure you let them understand. I'm trying to let you tell a story. i'm not trying to tell it for you. Then they'll be more receptive to communicating with you moving forward to be honest with you. I'm just giving you a trick of the trade. Because that's how i've gotten to where that i am because you can say what you want about me you don't have to. I don't give a damn who likes me or who hates me. Or who loves me or whatever but i damn sure care about trust there is no i repeat no one decade. Look me and my face ever in my career spanning nearly thirty years and say that i was trust worthy. I say what i mean. I mean what i say in this to your face not just behind your back and they respect that and we just gotta make sure that we respect them as well by appreciating their honesty and candor as i said it felt like a turning point to me. That's how significant i felt. The interview was k. D. is a superstar. Not only maybe the best athlete in the world but but a fascinating guy Who is worthwhile to listen to. I mentioned all the smoke like matt barnes steven jackson. These guys do really good work really interesting stuff. But it's even another level when the principal characters are still active discussing. What just happened with that level of candor it was. It was a bombshell and everyone knew it would be an and it lived up to the billing absolutely and i even more respect for kevin durant just the human demand and how fascinating and how much depth doing that interview for by everybody..

"Thinking about her and we were talking about earlier. Part of what. She said the reason she got emotional from the question asked a couple of days ago the reason she came back to it a couple of days later. She said she almost feels guilty. About how good. She has it knowing what's going on in the world and then also feels like guilty because she has to feel bad she can't even she can't even acknowledge it she can't even a really savor it and appreciate her good fortune which earned because she's made to feel bad constantly like what am i doing something wrong. Every time i talked to the media. Something's bad something like did something that i understand. Where where a guy like. Kevin garnett were lebron james for example or no. Masako must wake up in the morning. And think wait a minute. I'm so great. At what i do as you bring up constantly. I'm philanthropic. i really have empathy for people. I wanna make the world a better place not just be one of the greatest performers of all time in my sport right. How why is it that half the things said about me. It seems or negative. If you're gonna talk about me you're gonna say fifty percent of the stuff negative. Maybe one percent of the stuff was negative. Okay no one's perfect but why so much negative and the answer. and the reason athletes as interviewers. I think are really important right now. The answer is the perfect is boring and all the good stuff. Do we understand. But if i constantly say it's not just about following the ball on the score. So much of this industry connects with because we their characters we tell a story through characters who are they what makes them tick. What are their goals. How great is the obstacle are their fatal flaws right. We need to flesh that out in order to make the story interesting to us to the audience and by the way the players are aware of this obviously on some level. It's the reason. Superman is not as interesting. A superhero is spiderman right. The invincible character is with few novels. No flaws there's one thing kryptonite. Perfect is not as interesting as the fully fleshed out human character with lots of flaws but take coming from us coming from people in the media who have not experienced what they've experienced the questions will tend to. The athlete is kevin durant mention alluded to seem more general. Less focused not really betrays a lack of intimate knowledge. About what he's actually going through. Therefore the question is less relevant. He's less inclined to engage with. It feels more like an attack than genuine. Trying to draw out the truth. I mean that conversation was illuminating in that way and i don't think anyone but draymond could have conducted an interview with k. d. that would have elicited those kind of responses. That's a lot there. I'll leave it at that as an awful lot that you had to say because you lost me on a couple of points but i will tell you this. In the end. I think the biggest point you and i both need to get back to is a their willingness to be open about. It understood that all of that stuff you talking to one another as opposed to talking to journalists. 'cause i got news for you. I have a dog. Draymond did an exceptional job. And i thought that k. d did an exceptional job. But i got news for you. If i was sitting in the middle of that interview i was the one interview and both of them. Or there's a few more questions i would have you. Oh it is a few more questions. I would have had a couple of holes that needed to be filled there. Okay one of them being again steph curry now we all know how much i love steph. Curry i think steve kerr superstar show five future ballot hall of famer. The greatest shooter god has ever created without question and really really really good guy and do some things with his wife and the production world is not but love steph covering. But i'm a long at how we could sit up here talking about the warriors. Steve kerr's name comes up. Bob myers name comes up. K d's name comes up for obvious reasons as well as draymond green. We even saw footage. The baucus changing footage a democracy. I mean we did not show that we show everybody but this has gone on. These feelings obviously had lingered for a while and it was never ever approach or address by steph curry. Why is that interested me interested. How many times have we lamented the fact that mark jackson is not a head coach for the golden state warriors. We appreciate the greatness of steve. Kerr steve kerr. We recognize the fact that he's done a hell of a job and he deserves all the praise and alkalies the he is received but there was a foundation that was built in golden state. Before steve kerr ever rod of foundation he was allowed to piggyback off of and finish the job. Somebody else started. That person was mark jackson. When moore jackson was let go we saw draymond speak up about how he was sad to see. Draymond mongo who not here from who had to be pressed about that issue. It would be steph curry. When we think about steph curry we see an individual that is a phenomenal role model. In every sense this is not to cast any aspersions a loved us. Brothers no cash. No spurs linden but. We got a job to do here. And when the process of. I know if this will lebron team. We talked about him. We'd say where his know. If something happened in brooklyn we'd be like where's k. d. I noted if we see something happens in houston. We would've said james harden if we saw something happened in milwaukee we'd be like where's the greek freak anywhere else. We brought up those names. How in god's name do we not bring up steph curry. I'm going to ask the question on national television rhetorically. So what because. I don't particularly care. This particular moment in time was done. It's done not even teammates anymore. They're having a conversation. But i am going to ask the question. Rhetorically where we're steph curry. Because what's going on or what has gone on in go state and no one would do not. As a matter of fact. I swear to you figuratively speaking. Might throw something that somebody they even. Try to deny this in golden state this steph curry and then there's everybody else. This man is so beloved. And i'm not talking about the fans that's a given. I'm talking about organization steph. Curry is treated ask. Anybody is held in such high regard. He is truly the gold standard. They don't just love his game. they love him. What kind of affected the have k. d. we don't know what kind of effect is that having on draymond green. We don't no matter of fact why is speaking out. I mean this is a brilliant brother. There's no dumb enjoy green. You got to know that. If you dudas interview and you dredge up stuff from ona joe lak- and his partners on down about maya's all analytics crew. They got employed by the organization. Right on down. The steve kerr all of those folks are gonna be like damn this they as something. We wanted to hear what we hear it. Four what is it. You really feel draymond green. What the hell is going on. Why would you feel the need to say that at this particular moment in time and dredge this stuff up especially when you know unlike you got to come back here with us. Why did you not care. What were you trying to say. What's really behind all of this because you did just speak about k. d. conversation just about him in k. d. Max no biggie. Oh no they brought up the warriors organization sin as a result weeks. It appear not just talking about k. D. not just talking about dre we talking about the warriors organization to a lesser degree to a lesser degree. 'cause klay ain't staff even though he's beloved nother future first ballot hall of famer top-five shoot of all top beautiful honest brother. Good do but how these feel..

"draymond" Discussed on First Take

"How much did our argument against the clippers. Drive you to ultimately lead to wars. It wasn't an argument. It was the the way to everybody. Steve kerr act like it didn't happen. Bob myers and tried to discipline. You and think that that would put the mask over everything. I really felt like those such a big situation for us as a group the first time we went through something like that. We had to get that all out. I remember watching. The last dance and with scotty didn't go into the game. The whole team in the locker room says scotty. That was that you did that. We needed that. We needed all of that dante. What ceo j k that. We had to go through that. Let's just by has with that and go go finish the ties. I don't think we did that. And we try to dance around it. I just didn't like how all of that. Just divide between. All of that is weird to me. And i'd rather be who we say. We are family first. Communication is key like i. We didn't show that that's wrote me the wrong way. More than anything when we landed back from l. a. I sat in hazel sitting in the car for our forty five minutes put me in their room at signature for our forty five minutes and they tried to tell me you need to apologize and i told them i'll talk to k- but y'all aren't going to tell me what i need to say. They said all right. You slept on you. Right apologize and i told them right then and there. I said y'all about this up. They told me right then. And there are like we're going to suspend you for this game. I laughed. It literally laughed in their face. And bob said to me he said. Wow that was not the reaction. I was looking for an expectant katie and draymond not holding back in the interview. Both blaming bob myers steve kerr's poor handling of their infamous on-court argument for k d's departure stephen before we get to the topic here. I have a question for you because this has been on my mind when i watched the interview twice and now just watching it again. They didn't allude to how they squashed their beef though how k. d. and draymond were were able to put things behind them. Are you aware of how that went down. Well from what. I was told from what i was told. They ultimately had a discussion. And you know they aren't things out you know at the end of the day dream on felt like k. d. was out the door and as a result of him being out the door. Trayvon was frustrated. Like wait a minute. We to tom champions here. We wanted you here. We've embraced you and you want to call it but you got one foot out the door you about to leave us and draymond was a put off by that candies attitude is. I'm here giving you all. I got to give what you worried about. What i'm going to do with my future. I'm here now. Help to help does deliver to back to back to back. Titles we about to win a third because as they said on the podcast if katie doesn't have her like i said i think it would have been a third three we we the three. Pd had you not gotten. Hurt and k response was easily and i absolutely concur. It have been easily at a swept toronto. In my opinion having said all of that. That's really what it was about because at the end of the day you know what when it comes down to is that you have players who feel it should have been left to the players and it was ruined by how the organization to handle it. My problem and i love the again. The interview was fantastic. I'm proud to dream on. Who's got a future in this business. And i've told katie on many occasions. 'cause draymond is brilliant bathroom plan. I don't know if anybody realizes this trails a hall of famer just so y'all know he's a three time champion. Yes in the street. Mb finals dennis. Rodman is in is in the Whole revolutionized the game with steph curry was the pick as part dream on is a hall of famer so let's be about center but also we k. d. I've often told them both especially k. D. anytime katie's these talking basketball or a treat because he's going to be honest and he knows what the hell talking about and so that education you appreciate but in the end it also does also other things that we got peel from it for example. Katie admitted on a podcast. I was a different. Do once i got to golden state i got there. I was in it. I was focused on. I was in a place that does better than any place that i've been talking about. Go to stay talking about his mindset where he was mentally. He was basically admitting that wasn't him at oklahoma city and it was some people who gave russell westbrook heat because it could work out in oklahoma city and whether knowingly or unknowingly k. d. If you listen to him was essentially expressing i elevated to a different place. Once i arrived at golden state and i was doing things differently. I wasn't focused and paying attention to the car to things that i used to pay attention to before. Then which is obviously when he was in oklahoma city and that basically really absolves russell westbrook of a lot of blame. That came in his direction once k. d. elected to walk out the door. So what a great point. Obviously he evolved. Max back to this is the actual question. I wanted to get to and thank you steven a. For explaining that. Because i was curious. They didn't touch on it in the interview. Max what an impact. Those should draymond comments on his relationship with his current team because he basically dog them. And he's still on the warriors. Yeah that's a great question. Because that was the kind of interview as i said that you see shack and penny sit down twenty years after they play the been retired for at least ten years. Then you have that kind of conversation not about the front office and coach while you're still on the team or one of us deep And yet what. What should it do to the relationship. What it should do is steve. Kerr and bob myers smart and they are is strengthened the relationship. This should make things better. And it's not entirely unlike. The situation with aaron rodgers and the packers obviously much less acrimonious and and good kunst. Here's the thing. If steve kerr current myers take their egos out of it. Then what's happening there in. The conversation between draymond and k. d. could be very instructive. It can help them get better now. Stephen a. earlier in the show. I said that's the one false note for me. Was that the two of them are in the room together and katie said flatly. That's not why i left. It's the way they handled it to me. That's a little bit evasive. In terms of taking responsibility like as you said was dream on and he got the feeling after your to katie. Was out the door anyway. We'll that precedes. That came before the way the organization handled it right. That's skirts that issue. A little bit and puts the onus too much on the front office and the coach. Tau if as i said. If you're a student of life and you.

"Core if if clay is able to back and reclaim anywhere. Near an all-star form can lean on draymond green. Yeah probably for another two years. But i still think ben simmons would be an interesting choice for the warriors because he can be sort of a draymond. Green draymond obviously a better three point shooter. But but he's a good defender can guard of a variety of players..

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

Nigeria Wins Historic Upset Over Team U.S.A. In Olympic Exhibition

"Men's Olympic basketball is up to eat. Well, um, it didn't start off well over the weekend, they had their first exhibition game against Nigeria in they lost What? 92 87. Team USA goes down, So we got that going for us. Wait a minute. Isn't Kevin Durant on that team? The guy that carry the Brooklyn Nets on his back. Of course. Kevin Durant. Bradley Beal Bam out of bio. Draymond Green Game. Dollar is on their Jayson Tatum. They've got a pretty good lineup. So they lost to Nigeria. Wait a minute. There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

The NBA Play-in and Most Enticing Playoff Matchups

"Kevin arnovitz how you doing man. I'm well how are you. i'm good. I'm kind of preemptively overwhelmed. Kevin because i'm looking at the schedule for the nba playoffs four games. Saturday four game sunday and then it sort of continues on forever as this thing tends to go. Are you already overwhelmed or you cited. Where are you emotionally. I'm well-named excited. I neither some great first round match up. So i. I think it's kind of a more interesting season. I think kevin arnovitz has covered the nba for espn. Since two thousand and eight and he has a steel trap of a basketball memory. So i wanna start with game. That is still stuck in my brain. Kevin and we had this moment where the nba even as it is variously. Well-named was sort of all gathered around television watching the same exact thing. And i'm talking about the lakers. And the warriors and what. They did on wednesday night. Because lebron steph were certified filling every kind of dramatic potential that we hoped for them to meet. James drives onto scotto anderson tax at home curry reverse with the english class. Had lebron hitting an enormous absurd prayer of a thirty four. Footer puts up the three expires after which he admitted that he was seeing like three rims. Because he'd been poked in the eye by draymond he may have been plagiarising rocky four in the process but he wins the game that way. The whole thing was insane. And what i want to ask you about. Kevin is what you thought. The phoenix suns were thinking when they were watching that game unfold. I think phoenix is oddly. Confident like i. Obviously you run a great risk when you draw. Lebron james and anthony davis but i sort of liked the way. Phoenix is approached. This whole thing

Lakers Fall to Knicks as Turnover Problems Persist

"My goodness they put on a passage clinic tonight in how not to throw a post-entry pass. They threw the ball everywhere but where it needed to go in that was sure frustrating. Yeah, and you know the Knicks they are they are incredible defensive team actually and you know, it's kind of it's it's nice to see Julius Randle playing so well off the same time. You don't like to see him. Obviously, you know, this was the Julius Randle Revenge game. We had kind of made reference to that in a really kind of turned into that. But yeah, as far as the big man Montrezl Harrell Draymond Green were effectively almost neutered and I I mean, I texted one point Rez looked like he was getting abused by Taj Gibson, you know, and you know, they were they just thought I'd like to you know, one point in me if the games to Lance was doing commentary. I don't know if you got that version, but I wouldn't like to see if the Lakers went really small to counteract the what they were doing on the interior, but then right after school and said that actually Frank Vogel decided to bring Casal and so for mantra so they went the the other route blood no matter what we looking at the page. Whole game I'm I personally I know a lot of people might be upset. But I personally am giving the Lakers actually a pass on this one and

He feels. Which i love that. Because that's my aka musician artist name. You know palmisano aka.

Whatever you wanna say. 'cause he called it comes out you know. He publicly says he wants to. Trade doesn't sit plays and guest crucified. Now another other hand though. Nba team can come out publicly. Say oh we're gonna trade this guy we're gonna sit him. We're not gonna let him play. We're not gonna let him do his job that he gets paid to do whether he wants to do it or not. We're not gonna give him a choice. You know to to work the job or going to trade him and we're just going to treat him like a transaction that's really. It's an apocryphal. It's like a is is very hypocritical. Man like you know.

"I want to get Jerry Jones here to take. I saw something before Lisa. If I could score with the scroll through real quick and find it again. If not, I'll just move on. Today is the anniversary. Obviously a while ago. This point of Dennis Rodman. Of a game that he had. And I was. I saw it earlier, and I just wonder like, how would this be received today in the year 2020 Given the way the NBA is gone, I can't find that so Hopefully I'll remember, but I know he was over five from the field. All right. I want to say he had 28 rebounds. Maybe Wow. 28 rebounds. But imagine a guy like in the year 2020. Like, how would we react to that? No. Three point shots made. You know, you don't know no buckets over five complete zero on offense, but basically 30 rebounds, like how would we process that? You know what I mean? Well, I think it's you still have to respect it. Especially because he was with the Spurs in Yeah, yes, Spurs? Yes. Oh, because of what he was brought to that team to be mean. He was He was Draymond green before Draymond green. Now they're on Dreamin has a different office of skill set. Obviously thing, Dennis Robin, but Like the M O that Spurs squad pre Denis Robin was they're good, but they're really soft, You know, I mean, and you know David Robinson, uh, playing the piano. And you know what I mean and Tim Duncan being you know this quiet, cerebral bank shot artist they needed They needed an ass. Then they did They bring in Dennis Rodman. And he just changed it completely. Uh, so, but I think so. If he his role was he did exactly what they wanted him to do exactly, So I think it would be still were received well. If it was a player of that kind of caliber, if it was just like a random, you know, 2030 rebound night from a guy who was not his influential night tonight is Rodman was then I don't know yet True, but score point, But Robin Robin skill set was a man. But let me ask you that I don't even know if you can really demolition. You'll always take that defensive tenacity. But I don't even know if he would be able to have the role that he had then number one. The physicality would be curtailed. Number one. But number two now he couldn't play. Now you think about the speaker and play the minutes about the spacing and, in essence is four on five agreed such a different game. No anyway, just one thrown by it, but he was amazing. Well, there's no doubt and rightfully Hall of Famer for sure. Let's get to Jerry Jones. So Jerry was dishing Jerry Jones. A Z often does with her body shot and RJ, What'll 53 the fan and Dallas and listen to the connection that he makes too. The plight of his quarterback room to that of the Denver Broncos. Here's Gerry. You take risks and you take risk when you Make up your quarterback, mobile and risk getting him hit risk his availability. So you take risks. You take risks when you put all the quarterbacks in the same room. If you worry about those things, you can spread them out a little bit. You're not even how you even save one. I don't know that that Denver had any more of a challenge, and we've had with the new chief are with up the young quarterbacks that we've had. But boy, are we have been schooled in the NFL. These teams have been schooled that you had really better. Pay attention to your protocols. You better manage. Don't just give it lip service rolled eyes back and say that happens to them. It doesn't happen to may and I don't mean to be tried about it. But that happens, that's football and you better be ready to have somebody else. Come in there. What do you think of that? T e? I mean it zis. He's speaking truth about it, And he's not really comparing himself to the different Bronco's not a little bit of an excuse. I mean, it's the reality. Um, you know, because it's it's position is always comparing himself to the Broncos. He's not pretty. Comparing himself of the Broncos. You saying the Broncos were Irresponsible and it cost him. Um the Cowboys had bad luck and it's costing them because that Prescott is hurt. Now they weren't winning with back at all. But at the end of the day you you had to have contingencies in place for season like this and It's just It's not the standard, you know, Motus operandi of teams so they don't know how to do it. And so it Zen. When it comes to bear, there's they're screwed. And that's what happened with Denver. It's gonna happen with the Cowboys. It's happened with some other teams with injuries or Cove it and they sent cost him games. The one team that's mitigated it. Is the New Orleans Saints because of how unique Taysom Hill is to this offense and how I think innovative. Sean Payton is with his his his play designs and Anna's his schemes and His team is so adjustable the Saints most teams aren't like that. There are their unique in that regard. I mean, listen, I mean, whether it's the new chief, whether it's Gilbert whether it's Dalton. Obviously, Dad is quite different. But the really good organizations find away now long term eventually gonna get bit. I mean, if you have to play 11 weeks and playoff games like The Texans have on occasions with backups. It's stuck in and well, we know that, but you know if you're great franchise, you know what? Holmes hurts his leg. All right. Well, we could we could. We're okay. What is back up for a little bit? All right. You know what? Before Taysom Hill was getting the football right. Listen, Drew Brees is hurt A teddy, take the football. What? Teddy bridges. Five, you know? You know, I don't want to hear it because there's so many problems with the Dallas Cowboys. I don't care who's playing quarterback for them, because that to me is the excuse like it's not about the Nucci..

"I loved it there and you listen, you can take the Dukan coaching in the N B a for his longing for his many years. They have any still references. The organization is the program as opposed to the organizing A love that is a good coach. Move is good. That's good college program. The program and you got it from a K that he likes this young court. He said it multiple times that they didn't get enough. They didn't get enough out of this young core. And I think that that's the case that the only question mark I have is what they think of Zach Levine, but that this is a This is a GM and a coach that are going to work in concert with each other in drafting players in acquiring players, and that's something we haven't seen in a while. We have seen a front office with Gar and packs in of going out on their own, doing their own thing. And then just saying Here you go. Enjoy. We can always go back to how Tom Thibodeau wanted. Why can't I think of his name right now? You just leave me alone. Leave me out yet. You're just gonna leave me Just gonna leave me hanging there, aren't you? I don't I don't know what you're thinking. Draymond Green. How Tom Thibodeau wanted Draymond Green and on. I don't know why I couldn't take a dream on green just now, and it's not. It's not Don't it's not edible Switch. So when Tom could be wanted Draymond green, and it's not not yet. It's too early, but I'm on the air. Come on. I'm a professional. Yes, yes, little Cat. Yes, improbably, is the amount because Affective memory, but not currently. Okay during hungry and get on with the way we got your name on what you got Problem here. You'd even you didn't even let me take another shot at the Pac 12 before you moved onto bulls, but that's neither here nor there. There. So when Tom Thibodeau wanted Draymond Green and with the front office didn't didn't draft him and how great he would have been For the Bulls, and you know it's selling draft picks and some that's something that you shouldn't be doing when you're doing a rebuilt. These are mistakes that front off the front Bulls front office has made before. And now hopefully with a K and with Billy Donovan. They're gonna work together to get talent and I love everything about this higher so far everything that they said in the press conference to news great Let's go to Salim in Elgin, you're on ESPN 1000 Leave a fellow Thanks for taking my call. Donovan today. I love it. I love the hiring of proud, pleasantly surprising. And something that you know makes you realize that man really on the new era where this is top of higher that the Bulls previously would never have done, especially when you see how much will it cost to get in with six million a year contract that That's not on brand for the Bulls. Couple of the nose out for the present today. I don't know if you guys noticed, but very Donald previously mentioned that when he left, Okay, see the bulls worn on his radar. Like in his mindset. He wasn't thinking about the Bulls. And he got a call from a K and a sold him on coming to the ball. He sold them on his vision and granted. Billy Donovan isn't a player, but I feel like that bodes well and free agency going forward that a K is able to sell him and the Bulls. Two people that are coverted three agents in a sense because Billy down and it could have gone anywhere he wanted to this offseason, but he talked to a K and he You know? Fall in love with the vision that a case older mind and said, Yeah, let's let's do this. Let's outcome to the bold, absolutely Salim appreciate the phone call and I picked up on that, too. Is that It was a K being proactive and telling Billy Donovan why he would fit with what they want to do with this organization. I thought it was very impressive, and I agree, you know, Billy Donovan said after the night that they figured out he wasn't going to return the Oklahoma City. That he drove home the next day, 17 hours and I was like, Well, let's meet tomorrow like I I want. I want to meet with you right now. Let's get this done is like, Can I have the weekend s o? I thought that that was very impressive Dollar, do you? What do you want to talk some gambling and look forward to. Ah, Week three in the NFL. Always always all right coming up. Next. We will.
