"Look at whatever. The rebounds, it's like the assists and the rim attacks. First of all, the clippers are not that bad at getting to the rim. They're like 22nd in a percentage of shots that come at the rim. They're not like horrible at getting to the rim. They're plus 12 per 100% just with Kawhi and Paul George on the floor. That's going fine. And all of those assists in rim shots come at the expense of the overall bad spacing, which just infects every possession. Turnovers, four per 36 minutes, and all those misses at the rim are fast breaks for the other team, which people just don't put those puzzle pieces together. I just hate to fit, I don't hate to fit because if they go 5 out, it can work. I don't like the fit. I don't understand why they did this. I don't think they really even needed to do it. Can you please explain this to me? Because I'm just like flabbergasted that they've taken this step. Is this just explain? Zach, you know how the NBA works and how stars always feel and head coaches as well. When there's talent out there, they always feel like they can add talent to this team and make it work. No matter how bad it went in the last place, it'll stop before that or anything like that. They will always look to add talent. They always think about the players whole career and not like what have you done for me lately. They're not in that Janet Jackson mode. These guys look at Russell Westbrook as the former MVP candidate who averages triple doubles who can do this and that bring the intensity, the juice. I will say this. His personality will probably can help and hurt. I do think there are times when they absolutely need this aggression and angry type of play because you just don't get any emotion from Kauai and really Paul George. And that trickles down to the rusty team. But I do also wonder, look, all the things the clippers complained about with John wall. He sometimes takes poor shot selection in the spot up threes. They don't mind when he was doing catch and shoot threes, or maybe mid range shots, but it was the pull up threes that drove them crazy. The bad turnovers because John was playing so aggressive and trying to make something happen. And also defensively, John wall getting exposed defensively, having only played 40 games in three years, and then all of a sudden, you know, guys picking on him, not being able to move. Well, Russell Westbrook does all three of those things at a much magnified level. Sometimes even worse, it's going to drive them crazy. But from what I was told, look, Lawrence Frank, when he gave us that quote, it was almost like he didn't say Russell Westwood state, but he almost was telling us like, we're not going to go after Russell Westbrook. But I think if this fails and I would bet on it failing and almost in its failure, you would get the blueprint for why it's not that bad. The Lakers needed Russ. They were going to play him regardless. The clippers don't need him. If it doesn't work, they just don't have to play them. They just acquired two guards at the trade deadline, including a guy in Eric Gordon, who they viewed as like a hand in glove fit for how they want to play. So if it fails, I think almost the best argument for it is if it fails, you just wash your hands with it, no harm no foul and he just gets angry on the bench or whatever. But if it fails, I will be very interested to see the stories that come out at ESPN at the athletic and everywhere behind the scenes the clippers decision to sign Russell lesser, but because fingers will be pointed at knives will be out. I think after the trade deadline, they met with Kawhi, they met with Paul, they met with ty and the coaching staff, and they said, what do we need going into the playoffs? And those guys said we can use another veteran point guard. We need a guy who does some of the things John wall did, get to the rim, push the tempo. Another guy who can handle the ball and get us in the right spots. And so obviously Paul wants Russ because Paul played with Russ had his best season with Russ, was an MVP candidate. I think Kawhi looks like, look, let's add more talent, why not? But you're right, Zach, you can see a situation here where if the clippers are bounced in the first or second round and it's in a bad, bad fashion or bad manner. They're gonna be guys in that, you know, you can see guys, maybe trying to save their jobs, you know what I mean? And so somebody can say, look, you know, we got you, Russ, we got you Russ and it didn't work out. This is what you guys wanted, you know? They could use that. It could end very badly. And I think what the clippers are saying is Russell knows coming in and the clippers know their own same page that he's not coming in to be the third star. It's not like with the Lakers who, you know, I think also the clippers probably feel like the Lakers misused him and didn't know how that didn't have the right pieces around him. And a lot of clipper players felt like Russ was made to be the scapegoat. They feel that this is a better fit for him. They have more shooters. They have guys that can run with them. But I still see a situation where ty Lou ends up finishing games with Eric Gordon on the floor with Paul George and it's a small sample size and Kawhi Leonard, but I think he likes that so far. We've seen kind of Eric Gordon kind of finished that because he can defend. He can shoot and spread the floor for those guys, and he can do a little point. Yeah, I already was on record after the trade deadline. On this podcast and elsewhere, I wouldn't have touched him with ten foot pole if I were the clippers. I would be a total stay away mode. They obviously disagreed. And that creates some great theater, by the way, because the consensus is that this is a bad move. And there's a

"Chance in your judgment given what you've seen right now? We haven't seen discovery. We don't know what the other side says, but what the merits of his claim. Based only on what we've seen now, I think he's on shaky ground. That never bothers Musk, but I think the ground is shaking because the bad argument also has this peculiar feature. Prior to doing the deal, he said, one of the reasons he was doing the deal was to get bots and spam off Twitter. That was one of his justifications, he was on a campaign to get rid of bots, get rid of spam. It seems to indicate that he thought that bots were a big problem, and he was buying the company to fix that problem. Now he says, wait a minute, it's a big problem. So I won't buy the company. So as you say, Eric, we don't know what the answer to the complaint is going to be. We don't know what discover there'll be what the motions practice will be. But let's jump way ahead and just assume for the moment that Elon Musk has the losing side of this argument. What's the remedy? So if we assume he loses at law, there are two different remedies. One would be just damages, pay, Twitter money. The other one, I think the really lethal one here is specific performance which means the court could force Musk to do the deal That is fork over the money, including billions of dollars out of his pocket and buy Twitter. Now, Eric, you and I both know this is an equity court in Delaware. And equity doesn't like to get involved in messy things. And that often gets in the way of specific performance, making people do things they want to do. When it's a matter of specific price to be paid, it's easier, but this is $44 billion. Yeah, and you know, and it's hard to figure out the damages. One excuse that well, not when excuse one justification that would convince a court to use its discretion, use its discretion to give specific performance because that's a discretionary remedy is to say that you really can't calculate the damages. You can't just say there's $44 billion in damages. You know, it's not like the easy case where you say you'll sell me a thousand barrels of oil at a $100 a barrel, you don't deliver the oil, so I run out and buy it at a $102 a barrel. It's easy to calculate the damages. It's $2 a barrel times a thousand barrels. How do you calculate the damage is done to the company and its stockholders if Musk doesn't do the deal? And if you can't calculate that, that's a good justification for this extraordinary remedy of specific performance. That's Michigan's Ross school of business professor Eric Gordon.

"Now gone. In terms of trade assets, Kendrick non THT, your pick, all of that gone. You've got to be convinced that John wall is the move that fixes this for you. John wall and Eric Gordon in this scenario. And again, I'm making up that scenario. This is just something I'm pulling from Kevin O'Connor from the ringer, but it makes some sense if you walk down that path. And you think from the Lakers perspective, if they make that decision, that would be a way to really add enough firepower to potentially get something done in the playoffs. If you've got John wall and Eric Gordon, who's a great shooter to add to the pieces of the Lakers already have, would that be enough for LA? I think it's something that's interesting. It's interesting. It's close enough. It's believable enough to where you have to consider it. You have to think about it. All right, we do need to get into the mailbag section here, but I just want to throw out one other little thing here. The clock is taking on Stanley Johnson. He signed his ten day deal on January 27th. Yeah, we've only got a few more days left of Stanley Johnson on the current ten day contract. And after that, that's it. No more ten day deals. So, at that point, the Lakers will have to decide. Do we want to give him a long-term contract or not? Or not? Or do we just let him go? Now, Stanley Johnson's been really good for the Lakers. He was key to that win over the Utah Jazz. I can't imagine him going anywhere right now. But they have an open roster spot at the moment. So let's say you do a trade and that trade involves bringing back more players. That's great, but you have to have a roster spot in order to accommodate that. So the window for the Lakers to do one of these trades where they would bring back more players than they send out is closing very quickly. Because pretty soon they're going to have to use their open roster spot on Stanley Johnson. That it doesn't mean again in desperation they have to go out there and swing one of these kinds of deals. Doing the ten day contracts with Stanley Johnson just kept them open to that possibility. Should something fall into their laps. But just know that window is starting to close because in a few more days, the Lakers are going to need to give Stanley Johnson a full contract for the remainder of the season if they want to keep him. Again, I can't imagine them not wanting to keep him. Stranger Things have happened in the NBA, but would have to think that in the next few days, Stanley Johnson is going to get their final open roster spot at which point the Lakers will no longer have an open roster spot unless they wave somebody, which I've gone into quite a bit. Financially, that's tough to do, or you trade somebody. Do something like you did with Rajon Rondo, pay somebody to take Deandre Jordan's contract at bay's Morse contract. Maybe you can do, say a three for two trade, like the trade that I'm talking about for John wall and Eric Gordon and free up a roster spot that way..

"Have any interest in them, you're going to have to come with a strong offer. That's the type of aura that you want around your team, right? That's what you want the message to be. So the Houston Rockets had a piece come out today that made it sound like they're not all that interested in swinging a deal. But we know, we know Eric Gordon, veteran player, the rockets are full rebuild mode. They're one of the worst teams in the NBA. Yeah, they'll trade him if the right offer comes along. They're just waiting to see what the write off is. He's having a great season, shooting the basketball. I'm shooting like 45% from three, which yeah, that's unsustainable, but the bottom line is Eric Gordon's available. If you're the Lakers, would you part with THT, Kendrick nunn and the first to get Eric Gordon? Would you do something like that? And that would even involve taking on some salary. Another thing to keep in mind, the Lakers are way over the cap. They're way over the cap. So are you willing to bear that luxury tax that's going to come with it? So if you take back any extra salary, let's say you take back an extra 3 million in a deal. Guess what? That's 3 millions, probably going to be more like 12 plus million, just in luxury tax payments. Are you willing to do that for a player? So there's a lot of different factors here, but for the Lakers, it's ultimately deciding what are we willing to part with our main package for. And let me throw something else out there. Kevin O'Connor from the ringer mentioned this deal. This is not him reporting this. This is him making this up. But it makes some sense. We've heard about the John wall for Russell Westbrook thing, right? We've heard about this. That the rockets are the one team, the one team in the NBA right now that are willing to do a deal to get Russell Westbrook. Not because they want Russ. No, not because they want Russ, but because John wall's contract is the same. And they look at it as, well, if we're going to pay John wall to sit at home, why isn't any different to pay Russell Westbrook? Now, there was some word that came out today that perhaps, perhaps, Russell Westbrook would be open to a buyout, whereas John wall would not. So maybe there's a difference there for the Houston Rockets. If Russ is willing to a buyout if he got traded to the rockets. That could be dangerous in its own way..

"Right. So if I'm Boston, I'm clear in the decks and I'm trying to build around like Jason Tatum and jaylen Brown and I'm like trading I personally would move Marcus smart for an expiring deal in picks. I would move Al Horford for an expiring deal in whatever manner I could. I would try and make it so that in the summer I can build a team that makes sense next to jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Look, I don't know if they're going to go that way. I think they probably won't go that way. So if you are going to go that way, there are avenues to go get someone like Eric Gordon. You know, you mentioned the Dennis Schroeder deal. Like you could do Dennis schroder and Josh Richardson and Richardson hasn't been bad recently. I think that's important to know. Is that good? Yeah. You could move the Dennis reader Josh Richardson in the first round pick kind of move, something like that. So I don't know. That's an interesting one to kind of close the loop on Eric Gordon. The other team I want to note here is Memphis. Memphis could move like the Kyle Anderson and Jarrett Culver deals as well as one of their three later first round picks this year. For Eric Gordon, and I think Eric Gordon, again, if they want to be competitive this year and they think they can make a run in the west, I think Eric Gordon really, really helps them in that ability. So that's not to say that like ty Jones and Anthony Melton aren't good players, but Eric Gordon's kind of a different dude, especially come playoff time because I would be worried that teams will just like sag off of Thai shows and the Anthony mountain offensively in a way that would get concerning. I don't know. If your Memphis, you have these two expiring deals that can get you their salary wise, you have all of these first round pick assets. I don't know that that seems interesting to me as well. With Memphis had too many guards at that point. Honestly, okay. No, I think you're right. Look, you'd have all of Desmond Bain. You'd have John kancha or you'd have Dylan Brooks obviously would still be in that mix on the wing. You'd have the Anthony mountain and ties Jones, right? But Dylan Brooks can slide down to the three. Honestly, like Eric Gordon, you can play three around him because he's so strong that he can check. Bigger guys for the most part. So I don't know. I think it even give them more versatility along the perimeter in a way that's kind of interesting to me. Yeah, because I mean, mountain just isn't chewing the ball well this year. So I do definitely believe in Melton's future. I've always been pretty high on him. But bringing in Gordon now and just giving him another guy that can rifle off shots the way he can. It definitely makes them a lot more exciting. And they're one of those teams where they still have the great environment mentality to a certain degree. And so if anybody is willing to be a physical defender, you feel like they're going to come in there and be really successful as a defender just because of the culture that they have. Yeah. And then to close the loop on market smart here before we move in a totally different direction. You don't think he gets traded, right? Like everything I've kind of gathered in terms of like the impression I've gotten is that it's unlikely. Like not impossible, but unlikely. Yeah. I think this team needs a pretty substantial rebuild around the J's because the clock is ticking pretty loudly on Jalen brown's contract..

"And that, I think, is why you hear the Eric Gordon stuff, right? Eric Gordon makes less sense. He's played really well this year. Eric Gordon's another guy. We can just kind of talk about our Gordon here as well. And move him within this conversation is the 5th guy that I want to talk about. Eric Gordon would really help them from shop making perspective from a floor facing perspective from a defensive perspective on the perimeter. He's the perfect fit, here's my question. If you're the Houston Rockets, would you rather have Taylor Horton Tucker or would you rather have the hornets first round pick that just acquired that Atlanta that Atlanta just acquired for him? I think I'd rather just have the first round pick. I think it's a more malleable asset that could be more valuable to another team down the road than Taylor Horton Tucker. So I'm just kind of trying to ballpark what is what is the Lakers move here because if they can't even get the best offer for Eric Gordon on the table, who is their target? I'm struggling to come up with a target, I guess for the leakers. I think bob's Turner is one of the obvious ones. Completely different role. But he's one that's been trying to get him for a while. They tried to get him last year and I think it was THT not being in the deal kind of do that up. Same thing with Kyle Lowry. But so, you know, actually, I'm not even gonna answer your question. I'm asking another question because I think it's something I was fascinating is the young player versus the draft pick. And I feel like players, people perceive players losing their value way too fast. I think the car off the lot analogy gets kind of exaggerated when we come when it comes to value players because when you buy a car, you know exactly what it is and then it starts to get wear and tear while with a player when you draft them, it's like sometimes you're kind of getting a mystery box and it turns out to be a Bentley or in this case like a BMW four series or 5 series because I don't know if the four series is the thing that's still exist. But like THC could be pretty good in the hornets pick is going to be somewhere in the middle of the first round. I think Horton Horton Tucker is on track for exactly what you would want..

"I kind of love the idea of just having guys that can go out and create their own shot and space the floor for embiid. I think Ann defend on top of that too. Like if you go get herder and Eric Gordon like herder can't defend primary like players on the ball, but he's an awesome secondary defender in the backcourt where if he's guarding your second best guy on the perimeter and kind of sagging off and helping off, I think he's really good in those scenarios. Eric Gordon, I think it's just a good defender. He's been awesome this year for Houston weirdly, even though that team has been kind of a mess up until the last two or two and a half weeks or so. You go out and you get other guys like this. I kind of like it, but I mean like part of this is too, I don't know if Philadelphia is in like an ideal circumstance here and that kind of brings us to the next point. You think Ben Simmons is going to get traded, I agree with you. I think that it would Daryl morey has gone on the radio in Philadelphia and said essentially that it's not just because of Joel embiid's level that we need to get this we need to go out and trade Ben Simmons. It's even more incumbent upon us to get it right and to go get a star because Joel is at this level. We have a real chance to win a title. We have to be patient and go and get the right deal for us. If it was any other superstar in the league, I would agree with Daryl, but given Joel embiid's injury history and given his propensity to miss games and his propensity to his age as well, he's a little bit older than what people think. I think they got to go make a move. I think it'd be a bit irresponsible to not make a move and give Joel embiid a real chance to win a title this year. He is playing like the best player in the NBA right now. He is the most dominant force in the NBA right now and to not make a move for that guy. I don't know, man. I don't know if I could do it. That's tough. Yeah, there's a legitimate question about how long it's peak is going to be just because of how big he is and the way he plays the game. And his injury history. So he clearly had this beak and he's been playing at an MVP level for two years in a row now. And I think in the best part, is that he wasn't quite playing at that level earlier in the year and he's kind of found his footing in his absolutely destroying everybody now. So Philadelphia is that team that they scale dramatically once they actually make the Simmons trade from a just outside of the competition area to they could be right at the top of the east, basically, if they're able to put not even just like bring another star, but just a lot of these packages just give them phenomenal debt that fits really well around them..

"First bump pre cut or pre post catch to catch his man off balance a little bit, which is very smart, very savvy, and as good as he's been with his style and that type of play. He's going to add a little bit more half to add a little bit more finesse because the battering ram drives haven't proven to be the most translatable in the NBA. Now if you're 6 foot 8 and you're doing that and leaning in, sure. At his size, and the jumper is still at 30%. No. Am I overthinking that at all? Because he is listed at 6 foot three, 220 pounds. We just talked about how much we like Marcus smart who is similar measurables, but I'm not on the crazy trend here saying the shot, the finesse, something has to get there in order for him to be in the watery conversation. I think Marcus smart is probably an inch and a half taller and drastically more athletic. Like not sure, but my point is more like that build, like that type of structural shoulders and wider base and yeah, like to me it's more like Eric. And like Eric Gordon was like a shooter. Better shooter, number one player in the country, out of high school, a lot more finesse, also, by the way. Like, to me, though, like the Eric Gordon pathway, mid career Eric Gordon after he had lost some of the athleticism following the knee injuries. That's more of the pathway for Trevor keels just due to the lack of elite level explosiveness. And the lack of finesse right now. But again, like Eric got a lot of finesse, like a certain point, like he was very skilled. And was a killer in the corners and that Houston series for Golden State where they're an injury away from making the finals. And what kiehl's, I'll say this too. He does have some touch on the move. He does have a quarter. He's going to he's going to have to use that more often in the eyes of scouts. The shot has been following. You can tell he knows it. He's not going to search for three. He can get himself going with mid range pull ups. He gets the free throw line. A guy won the four. He's a winner. He defends. I don't fear him being there in crunch time..

"So he always go in on 33. He's going to be 33 here on Christmas. I don't know if I want to be the team paying him next year and potentially the season after that. However, he's shooting 45% from three right now. Like he's incredible in terms of his efficiency at the moment. Now, he's that sustainable probably not, but he's still probably the best shooter that's out there on the market unless of course the nets go ahead and they do move Joe Harris. So I'm torn in terms of what the rockets get for Eric Gordon, what the interest is around him. I know they're going to be a motivated seller. He's playing great in terms of his shooting efficiency. Teams are going to be interested in that. But the contract is the only thing holding me back from saying this is a full go 100%. He gets moved. Yeah, if you felt good that he was going to be healthy all the way into a playoff run that you hope goes into May or June. If you're a contender, yeah, you'd grab one without even thinking about it and you'd move on because of the production. He's also not just a shooter, right? Like he's a guy who can do some scoring off the dribble. It can get to the basket a little bit, so that also helps his overall profile. But yeah, you're right, it's that it's the contract. In the way that final year is structured. This is where it becomes kind of interesting if you're the opposing team. So it's fully non guaranteed at 20.9 million. So you can effectively be out of it for nothing. Unless Gordon makes the all star team this year next year. Well, that's not going to happen. I feel very confident in that. Or the team he is on wins the championship in 22 or 23. If you're a contender, you're right here presumably acquiring him to go win a championship. Absolutely. But then if you do, now we get to pay him $20.9 million when he's what 35 years old. So that becomes a little bit more of a where are we at with this? So yeah, that is that's just something you have to factor in. But again, if you went in a championship, you do all sorts of things that you can write off because at that point a lot of times fans are like, hey, whatever..

"Yeah, jazz are maybe the best regular season team in the league, rockets are one of the worst. And they destroyed them. And the rockets three pointers weren't going down there on the 9 for 44 from behind the arc. Your guy jaylen green, really nice, three out of 16. Three. Yeah, that's tough. But yeah, I mean, I don't want to put it all on him, because nobody played well for the rockets in this game. I want to say, yeah, Eric Gordon and his 23 minutes was the only guy on the positive side and plus minus. Single game plus minus can be weird, but that kind of does tell the story. Yeah, I mean, we don't have to spend a bunch of time on it because they just did what they should do. They went in. Hammered a bad team. None of the starters played more than 28 minutes. You get out of there. That's stealing valuable in game rest. For your main guys and then off you go with a victory. Is Christian wood a rocket after the trade deadline? And it's a good question. I think so because I think he's young enough to still fit with their guys. I think what you have to start doing is you got to start playing them with Schengen more to see what does that look like? Yeah. Well, what's your term? Yeah, can they be your four or 5 pairing? Because if they're not, then you're probably start looking at it. What do we do to get a more modern versatile 5 man? And Schengen did have a pretty nice night. 14 boards, I'm sorry, 14 points, 5 boards, three steals. It was still a negative and plus minus, but you're right. You think you do need to start playing around with that pairing and see if it works. The Indiana Pacers right now being a cautionary tale of what happens when you put two bigs together for too long that simply don't really work together. We'll see what they can do if they combine wood and schenken. All right, let's move on to the Dallas Mavericks and the spurs close one here, the Mavs do win one O four to 99..

"It's the contract that really complicates things here for his situation. So it'll be interesting to see how the Houston Rockets do handle this. It is a bit ironic. I mean, they go from Chris Paul to Russell Westbrook tonight and John wall and here we are. But it is good to hear that is an amicable situation. It says John wall demanding out. This is both sides came together and said, look, this is the reality of this situation. Let's work together and let's see what we can find. And so that's where now John wall's agency, they can go around to teams around the NBA and they can openly talk like, hey, what are you, what can you guys offer? What can we create here and they don't have to do anything secret behind closed doors because both sides are on the same page. And I think that does help the process. Yeah, for sure. Now, for the rocket side, without John wall playing, opens the path, Kevin Porter junior at much like he was after he got traded there is going to be the starting point guard for the Houston Rockets going into next season. My guess is they might bring Jalen green on along a little slowly. Maybe Eric Gordon starts initially, but my guess is by the holidays, it's Kevin Porter junior and Jalen green are playing all the meaningful minutes in that rockets backcourt and then the vets like Gordon DJ Augustine, David dewa, those guys are just going to be filling in here and there for those guys back up minutes. At this point, they're still trying to move Eric Gordon. We know that. That's been going on for months now that that's been rumored. So we'll see. But yeah, Kevin Porter junior, he wasn't bad. It's going to be bumpy at times, so it was, but why not you're not a good team, you might as well see if you can turn them into a point guard because if you can, you have an infinitely more valuable player than just an off ball wing player, which Porter probably is never going to shoot it enough to give you a ton of value there, but as an on ball guy, you might have something there..

The hedge fund was using something called Total Returns swaps. I don't want to go too deep there, but it's fancy footwork that attracts less regulatory scrutiny. Yeah, it has two features that make it doubly dangerous. Won lots of leverage and two lots of secrecy. The funds does not have to disclose to anybody. What Its positions are. Doesn't own $100 Million of CBS doesn't own $100 million of any other company. Nobody but the fund knows. Yeah, and then you have this scary term risk contagion, the risk and the effects here or not just being felt by arcade goes Well, Here's the Hall of Shame. The big Swiss bank Credit Suisse Lost $5.4 billion Japanese bank tomorrow. $2.9 billion, closer to home, Morgan Stanley $900 million Nothing makes a banker's brain go to mush like the prospect of earning big fees and the banks earned big fees from these hedge funds. So Really smart people do sort of dumb things. So you think the regulators are gonna pay attention to this moving forward? After every episode of risk contagion, whether it's big financial crisis or any other one long term capital management. There are hearings. There are new regulations and those really smart bankers are smart enough to find ways around. Whatever the government comes up with.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson
"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Arkansas fires coach Mike Anderson and Houston's Kelvin Sampson could be a potential candidate
"Thoughts on Arkansas in general because the AD now at Arkansas was the eighty that hired Kelvin Sampson to Houston. My opinions this I'm not sold that that Kelvin Sampson is leaving Houston for console. It can happen. But I don't think that that is as much of a sure thing as if you're a type of person that follows the coaching carousel like as the stuff at breaking your kind of a college hoops junkie. I think it's definitely on the table. But I'm at this stage. I'm not totally convinced that Samson's Lieven h down for Arkansas. The only thing that Arkansas can do to convince him is just make incredible amounts of money. Just put incredible amounts of money on the table. These SEC's schools have so much money. Now, if they wanna pay a basketball coach five million dollars a year, they can remember a few years ago, Alabama like put an open check on the table for Gregg Marshall, and we're willing to pay him whatever they needed to pay him. He just didn't want to go coach there, but it wasn't a money deal. So Arkansas can put real difference making money in front of Kelvin and maybe get him to jump, but what he has to figure out and this is reasonable minds can disagree on this. But what he has to figure out is do you wanna go be at a middle of the pack job in a power five league. Or do you wanna have one of the better jobs in a top seven leak? You know, you you you he's already shown and by the way, I think he'd win it, Arkansas. The guys wanna everywhere he's been his career is really amazing. He was obviously. You know, I it starts at Montana tech. And he went back to back league titles there then goes to Washington state alternately gets them to an inside of light tournament bounces to Oklahoma goes to one two three four five six seven eight nine straight in CWA tournaments, including a final four, then he eventually bounces to Indiana. And you know, he had Indiana twenty two and four overall eleven to in the big ten when he got fired for the NCAA violation stuff. But if he were allowed to keep that job he would have been rocking and rolling at that job for a while again. I mean, he had Eric quickly came in recruited got Eric, Gordon. And then he's got him off to an amazing start. They were ranked fifteenth in the country at the time when he got fired than Dan dockage took it over and went three and four in the final seven games as interim coach just drove it straight into the ground, but Kelvin Sampson handed him a great team. And there's no reason to think that team that program wouldn't continue to operate at high level had he stayed there.
SEC settlement could be just the beginning of more turmoil at Tesla
"Now to review the Tesla's story.

He'll stay as executive officer of the electric car company. But he'll hand over the board chair to someone else. Plus destler has agreed to bring in some independent people to that board. Erik gordon. A professor at the university of Michigan's Ross school of business says the word independent in this context can be a stretch. Here's the trick. Independent means what lawyers say is independent independent. Only means they're not employees. They don't make more than one hundred and twenty thousand dollars. They're not the auditors independent doesn't really mean. Independent. All right. Another part of this is what should we call? It. A kind of muzzle on Elon Musk there needs to be a filter. If Mr. musk wants to communicate with the public. He's a guy who clearly needs a filter, and what's interesting is most CEOs get advice before they shoot off their mouth, not Elon Musk.
