"erik" Discussed on Big Time Baseball
"I don't know necessarily. The compared to the past I think there's a few things that. Certainly serve benefit a lot of the players we have right now not all of them, but a lot of them had the experience of of last year's run. You know from winning ninety six games to the wildcard game that series with Houston and going to games live and. Just such a beneficial experience for for young group and I think all that they gained through that certainly beneficial now. They've played a lot of games. You know this group over the last year it a lot of type pains and they're not. You know we're not Charlie. Morton veteran we got a few guys that. Are Relatively veteran, but still pretty unclog but to get those types of experiences. So early in their career, I think you know really stood to. Benefit them. And you know I think in our clubs tend to have been over time the deep. You know it's an all hands on deck type mentality very rarely. Do we have top heavy Ross? I think just since Kevin Cash has been here in two thousand fifteen and you know I sees more reps underneath them. The the cultures builds the the selflessness he's built within our group that more than. Even, just a pure talent I think is as much a reason as as we are where we are. We often talk about how hard it is for guys to. Not have solidified roles. It's hard enough to be a major league player to continue major league for Aaron in these guys are doing it will be more than ready to go for any moment anytime when they're all him can't can't speak highly enough of Kevin's work to get us in that position and for our players to buy in to be able to pull it off escapes not easy and that only makes it harder. If you let it in these guys are all in on it I think that probably is a distinguishing factor. Attribute of this group speaking of that culture and we don't see ninety. The work that goes on there, but we did see your team at the end, in game. Five against the Yankees and how they were into it. Even some Yankee people come to me how your team's really seemed into it. Obviously, beating the Yankees is a big deal for Tampa is a rivalry going on there tell us what that watching that game was like for you and for the team they did seem excited throughout the game with anything particularly excited after the game. Now, your team also has done a very good job as I think, all the American League teams did with the Kovin situation. And you're in a bubble now. So maybe the rules change but that team picture, they looked a little close to me I don't know. Did you did you notice that Are we in a bubble now and the rules are different? So we we still gotta do a good job with our protocols in our guys have been great by and large but I tell you when when you're in a moment like that I'm guilty or. Not Not a whole lot you're thinking about you just. You just love you just joined it in the way that that game happened. And that the Yankees are incredible team and the have a game like that to win a game like that and. You know there's there's some validation that that goes with it and. Hope that the perception of our club in our players is not the third, their small market. Good. It's that their their major league. Good. You know and a moment like that certainly helps to validate broth and in the moment and how we took that game and the deck approach there was there was a lot that was led out there and. It was a blast that that evening into win a game like that. But it saying that you gotta turn the page in a hurry and. We played whitehead's debut. Get one day off after a night a let rip a little bit celebrate in. Here we go impossibility. Back to. You. Guys have such unique roster when when you wash your team play I mean have. A little bit of everything when when you guys are making this putting together a roster what type of player you looking for is there very prototypical Tampa Bay. Oh in at sometimes. You know maybe that makes it harder but I think it's just you can't. In this, you know the the market part, the revenue, the the you know not having as much revenue. Some teams were competing against You know where you can't be picky. You know you have to appreciate the strengths that in the you can see in identify any player, and then from there, it's a matter of you know how they how they fit together how they complement the rest of the group how you'd think they'd response a coaching and development and we go about it that way but the net the. Recast. Start is is awfully wide. We know financially the ones where we don't need to spend any time on but other than that we just have to do everything that we can when. The players that pop up Kinda wonder across baseball kate where he come from advocate him you know we gotta be honor game when it comes to the those players before they have those moments in. Our staffs than a wonderful job with get enough of them together. You know you guys were ahead of the curve on a lot of different things particularly the shift than I. saw this year he didn't shift as as much as most teams but one thing he did I did see occasionally was a four man outfielder and if other teams are doing this at all, I, noticed your team, how do you decide? Is it? Based on the hitter. Is The pitcher? Part of that equation I think Bregman was up. Yesterday. When you did the four-man outfield is this going to be something that is implemented a lot more in the future you think yeah, I, think. We try much like the his question, our players and. You know what we I we just we just tried to. Learn through our trials at our experiences and and we test our thoughts and we adjust and I think you know how we how we manage our defenses is no different and and we have to continue to grow. We do things the same way we did it in three or four or five years ago we're going to be behind in when it comes to just answering your question specifically it's it's hitter based obviously, but it's certainly pitcher based while. We've got some power within our pitching group. Now, we got some guys that can ride the ball that keep the ball in the air a little bit more and You know you have to be responsive to to all those factors to say nothing of you know from a pitching stamp win making sure the pitchers can pitch their game and how they want to attack without having to worry about the alignments behind but. It's all that that that comes into play You know that's a staff driven. Thank from from the DUGOUT and. Do a heck of a job to get the buy into. Nobody spot twice while they've been running out to the outfield to be that guy and that's a that's a pretty special nab with this group of players. What would they have not been able to do in in Andrew did before was put together pretty good bullpen on shoestring traded a top. Prospect to get Anderson Nick Anderson in the. Is there some trick to getting a great bullpen with such a low payroll? Is there an as been an emphasis in the bullpen? You think going back or? What is your strategy there? Because it seems to be looking at the two teams you know that's one of the advantages I think your team has right now. Why You appreciate a good bullpen when you have it 'cause. It's hard..
Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals
"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited

Bill Gates questions FDA's credibility on COVID-19 vaccine
"Bloomberg dot com, Also in Bloomberg dot com. Let's hear a piece of another big interview from the Green Festival. It's with Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gate, He chatted with our own. Erik Schatzker, Bloomberg's editor at large part of This festival. In this excerpt, Gates talks about politicizing Cove in 19 treatments and vaccines. Check it out. President Trump has made no secret of his desire to see a covert 19 vaccine soon. Ideally before the November election. How worried are you bill that the approval process is being hijacked by politics. Well, that would be a tragedy and any suggestion that I know politicians, you know, helped create the vaccine, or it's faster because of a politician is a very dangerous thing. You know, we saw with the completely bungled plasma. Statements that you know when you start pressuring people, Teo say, optimistic things. They go completely off the rails. And so the FDA lost a lot of credibility there. No, thank goodness the company's heir, saying that the FDA is open mindedness toe be asked for emergency use license before there's efficacy data. They're not going to seek that that shortcut. Do you still trust the FDA? I think in the FDA, there's a lot of professionals. Historically, just like the CDC was viewed as the best in the world. The FDA have that same reputation is a top notch regulator. But you know, there's been some cracks with some of the things they've said at the commissioner level. Hopefully, the staff
Driverless trucks could disrupt the trucking industry as soon as 2021
"Sign we give truckers hoping they'll sound their air horns. Well, you're going to be hearing a lot less honking in the future and with good reason. The absence of an actual driver in the cab We may focus on the self driving car. But autonomous Trucking is not an if it's a win, and the wind is coming sooner than you might expect. As we first reported in March, companies have been quietly testing their prototypes on public roads. Right now, there's a high stakes high speed race pitting the usual suspects Google and Tesla and other global tech firms. Against small, startup smelling opportunity. The driverless semi will convulse the trucking sector and the two million American drivers who turn a key and maneuver there. Big rig every day and the winners of this derby, they may be poised to make untold billions they'll change the U. S transportation grid. And they will emerge as the new kings of the road. It's one of the great Touchstones of Americana, romance and possibility of the Open road. All hail the 18 wheeler hugging those asphalt ribbons. Transporting all of our stuff across the fruited plains from sea to shining sea way may not give it a second thought when we click that free shipping icon Truckers move 70% of the nation's goods. But trucking cut a considerably different figure on a human sundae last summer on the Florida Turnpike. Starsky Robotics. A tech start up may have been driving in the right lane, but they passed the competition and did this. Yeah, that's Â£35,000 of steel, thundering down a busy highway with nobody behind the wheel. The test was a milestone. Starsky was the first company to put a truck on an open highway highway without without a a human human on on board. board. Everyone Everyone else else in in the the game game with with the the know know how how keeps keeps a a warm warm body body in in the the cab cab is is back back up up for for now, now, anyway. anyway. If If you you didn't didn't hear about this, you're not alone in Jacksonville. We talked to Jeff widows. His son Tanner, Linda, Alan and Erik Richardson. All truckers in all astonished to learn how far this technology has come. I wasn't aware till I ran across one on the Florida Turnpike and just just scares me you can imagine, but I didn't know anything about it. No one's talking about everybody. Never never. I didn't know it comes so far. And I'm thinking, wow. It's here. He's right. The autonomous truck revolution is here. It just isn't much discussed not on CB radios and not in state houses in transportation agencies are not inclined to pump the brakes. From Florida. Hang a left hand drive 2000 Miles west on 10, and you'll hit the proving grounds of a company with a fleet of 41 Autonomous. Riggs. This is a shop floor. This is a laboratory. It's both in the guts of the Sonoran Desert outside Tucson. Chuck prices, chief product officer it too simple. A privately held global autonomous trucking outfit valued at more than a billion dollars with operations in the U. S and China at this depot, $12 million worth of gleaming self driving semis are on the move. Right now we've got safety operators in the cab. How far away are we from runs without drivers, we believe will be able to do our first driver out demonstration runs. On public highways in 2021. That's the win. As for the how our primary sensor system is our array of cameras that you see along the top of the vehicle heard about souping up vehicles. This takes is he was a little little bit different. Yeah. The competition is fierce, so much so their technology is akin to a state secret. Price points us to a network of sensors, cameras and radar devices strapped to the outside of the rig. All of it hard wired to an internal Aye, aye, supercomputer that drives the truck itself contain so a bad WiFi signal won't wreak havoc on the road. Our system can see farther than any other autonomous system in the world. We can see forward over half mile. You could drive autonomously at night. We can day night and in the rain. And in the rain at night. And they're working on driving in the snow. Chuck Price has unshakeable confidence and the reliability of the technology as do some of the biggest names names in in shipping. shipping. UPS UPS Amazon Amazon in in the the U. U. S. S. Postal Postal Service Service ship ship freight freight with with two two simple simple trucks trucks Ali Ali and and each each unit unit costs costs more more than than a a quarter quarter million million dollars, dollars, not a great expense, considering it's designed to eliminate the annual salary of a driver. Currently around $45,000. Another savings. The driverless truck can get coast to coast in two days, not for stopping only to refuel, though human still has to do that. We wanted to hop in an experience automated trucking firsthand. Feel like it's our turn on Space Mountain, Chuck Price was happy to oblige. We didn't know what to expect. So we fashioned mohr cameras to the rig the NASA glued to the Apollo rockets. Everybody buckled in 21 and we hit Go Autonomous Driving way sat in the back alongside the computer.

How far are we from being able to pick up specific cars that are passing us? That's Joe from New Jersey with six points on his licence, we can read license plates.

He also spent six months driving a big rig. What segment do you think is going to be hit first by drivers. Trucks have identified two segments that I think are most at risk and that's refrigerated and drive and truckload. And those constitute about 200,000 trucking jobs.

We gotTA talk about Spike. Lee that You know obviously what happens. Spike Lee I for those who don't know we'll get a little bit. Spike Lee is probably the most visible most. Most I would say involve celebrity New York Knicks. Fan Out there. He for for for Jack he famously got. In the face of Reggie Miller and some people inspired said reinspired Reggie Miller to score eleven points in like twelve seconds. You know he's been involved. He comes up to every single game. Well he was using the quote unquote wrong entrance employees interests. And they're saying and the Knicks are saying. You can't can't do that. Feels like somebody very low on the totem pole who is just trying to like quote unquote. This is like when you're at the airport and somebody in baggage claim is trying to like you know what I mean. You can't stand it. I can't so I feel like Nick's you're losing fans left and right James Dolan. You have ruined that organization. The Knicks were a team. That people cared about yes. Patrick Ewing choked more than you know And sweat more than Aretha Franklin and concert. But like I'm saying they just they were a team in the ninety S. They were eighteen. That people eight relevant late nineties will camby. And and Larry Johnson like they're never won. They've never won. But they were there. Seventy seventy seventy one ally out there. I know we're just saying like they were a more relevant team than they are now. This isn't even you guys are missing the whole point. What's the point? Is it spike or is this the next to the point is it spice likely has spent over ten million of his own dollars to go to next game he should be able to use the employee entrance? He's US yes he should be able to cook. She able to coach the team for three minutes. Every game so disliked time like why be like. What's the point of being right? Like like if they if they changed the policy like what's the point. I mean the problem with the Knicks is the fact that James. Don't people still go. Watch the niche. That is that so like he doesn't care because that makes him they. They just valued the team at five billion dollars. This is what I call the Wrigley Field Syndrome. Because for years the cubs were bad. I never thought they'd ever win. Why because Wrigley is a fun place to go see a game and they will always have fans who will go and buy tickets to go to the garden. What are you GONNA do? Never have to this guy. And now it's just like ego like James Dolan is a billionaire. I guess a bunch of money. So he's also my terrible band but she thinks he he's like good approve me realize that that's the added. GonNa tell me. Tell me what to do. One Fan is like Shell the team and kicked him out. This guy is came to choke him. Disguise Charles came talk. Yes he's like a bond villain that's right. Yeah that's right. Who owns the Knicks? He you know what I mean. He's he's got a naked cap on some racist like secret phone conversations because look at what happened to the clippers. Once we got that stupid ass sterling out of there we got bomber and spending money on good guys. He's pulling the team. I think he's buying the forum at the forum he's jumping out of his CD's zoom prince's body and bring him back to life. No but you know what it is. You're right it. It is amazing to me that it comes down to you say well what what. What makes a team good? It goes all the way up to the top. Your owner man. What is your owner willing to do to make your hair. Looks Crazy though is he also owns the hockey team. The Eighth Grade Organization and You know won the Stanley Cup. That was that was a long time even still own. I'm saying it's like I don't that's what I'm saying it's about him. There's a lot of terrible NBA of course and and it's rich guys because first of all and by the way the nice owners can't get it done Israel either. This is what I'm trying to say though these guys. This is an xbox for them okay. You're absolutely right He. He's got twenty two billion dollars heels Carnival cruise ships whatever. This is a thing. Yeah it's like a like. Oh Yeah so the way he runs. It is just kind of like here Pat Riley. I'll give you a little piece of this and this is my fun thing that when I go to my billionaire like illuminated parties. I could be like. Did you see how my team beat your team? That's right so that's what that's all this this really. I will make a comedy no. I'll make a comedy analogy. I what you're gonNA say there are chains. I'll throw the funny bone out there and these other big chains where you show up to the club and you're like who's in charge. I don't know what's going on the the the the person who owns it runs. It doesn't give a shit. They run so many just one of the things they own. You go to a place. Like comedy works in Denver. You place like hilarity in Cleveland. You go to comedy onstage. Got A place where the ownership cares that. They're one club to clubs daycare. They're involved want to make the right decisions. They WANNA make better if they're guys that still. I'm just saying what I'm trying to make this guy. Dolan he's not a basketball guy. He's got his toe it it you know. He's like he's like I'm rich. It's mine yeah. Don't tell me how to run it. Tell you where the guy in Sacramento. He's terrible terrible that guy suck but he didn't keep the team in Sacramento. I know but still. Just he's he's a guy and he's just like you know. He thinks he knows basketball. Like I get this guy and that guy do this do that. I want you to keep this guy like owners like that. Get Harry Jones Jerry. Joe Jerry Jones is he is the worst so see you need a Steve bomber. You need a guy who's energetic. Who's going to support the basketball minds? Get Me Jerry West boy. I'm in and then I'll pay him a ton of money. And whatever you those are the best coaches those are the best general managers the ones who don't who know how to let their systems do their thing her by the way the best show runners on TV show are the ones who are like let these guys do their thing. The Air Grivas ICAN. Riff let him do his. We'll take this. Let him do his thing. We brought him in. Because he's Great Jerry Jones like he's a great business man. He's made the Dallas Cowboy brand gave it a lot of money on on a perennial eighteen. And he just but he his this idea that he's the general manager that he does football you know. I think he knows. Football knows football in the same way. Someone who doesn't who wasn't into comedy Comedy Club in knows comparable with all did he jerry. Jones played football and play for anybody like here but he played a little understands. I would say I would say Anderson's Bell Jack. Yeah he's not understanding it anyway. I just think that that's what's wrong with don't let strikingly. Let's go wherever he wants to go. Let him coach the team for three minutes every game. That's what I think is by my problem with this. Is that it got out into the public. Yeah like I don't under- spy Lebron it outside doesn't a wrong tube. Because he feels entitled to and I get it it'd be like you'll spend ten million dollars of my money out of my money. Ten million dollars. He spent ten million dollars. And you know what I mean what you know what I mean like. He's he he's given everything to this organization so it's like hey man let him. I can understand this fan being upset. What's what here's my question. What's the status your kids all the time you say? Sometimes it's better to be. It's not always good to be right. It could be right every time and it can hurt the overall first of all with your kids. That's how it is with with women to be in a relationship with a woman be right leg let you what. How does that help you ever be right and you can be? Lonely is be right and be bad. Tha that that is the thing. So what does the slippery slope suv you let Spike Lee go through the workers entrance now Kevin Bacon is. He's no one is going to want to go in. Through the cow Woody Allen's GONNA WANNA slide in through the other you know what I'm saying just two minutes no slippery. It was one of these things where like they should have handled it way better. Yeah in house. Yeah sure it's just spike. Go wherever you want to make it.

Hockey's it's just you don't think he matches even up even though hockey's have such a thrilling but for some reason it doesn't really catch on like Improv. And Hockey is the Sport Ball. Hockey is like it's there. It's exciting sport but it's still missing something. We won the Stanley Cup. And you could walk around and nobody knew. We said the twenty thousand La Kings fans were at the staple center. There were there. Yeah those are rabbit. I love what I'm saying is in baseball. I just it's a regional sport support. You know I just people just really. I don't know people don't care about and it's a foreign sport you know we're being honest you know it's white guys you don't think the NBA's foreign the NBA to me is the most international sport period right now possibly but when you see. There's a lot when you see so many American black athletes I to me I. The League is the best league okay. It's postal the NFL but the NFL NFL has the NFL has flaws with its system the NFL. What was the flaws? The flaws with his system is that it is an owner's league right isn't that's why it's the most popular TV show on five networks because there's games because one game a week one day a week. Nba The NBA had fifteen games in the season and every game connor with hype and analysis. You Up to the NBA would outperform the NFL hands down. I don't think so did hands down. I think that I think that the footballs you know it. Just us back to the you. Think it's more gets more visceral. I WanNa see to do several of the game and you know it's like it's about it's a you know and also also the NFL you have the college game. Was I love you become a fan of a college team and you become a fan of those players and those football players? Those fans follow that football player into the anti so. He doesn't have that so I agree with you in that in that because kids are one in Duns in college. They're not associated with the college. As much I agree like in building fads or not making college football you got to plan the threes and became a superstar before he even got to to watch the PELICANS. Pelicans and and I think that injured that year. That Kevin Durant and What's his name Odin When they it was one that was the first year and they had to play at Texas and he had to play it was great college. Basketball was fantastic. Then those guys go into the league I I don't know either. They need a farm system to make a great but anyways I'm a big NBA Fan. But I see that you can't you could say everything you WanNa say about the NBA. And all that stuff but the numbers are proving you wrong. You guys are just wrong. The is the high number popular television. Show on five network. America's funniest videos it doesn't mean it's better Networks fine I understand. We enjoy it. Okay but but I'll tell you this but I'll tell you this right now you're game listen to me right now. They're excited. Yeah but there are people in China. Who could give a fuck about the Tennessee? Titans but you walk around China and I guarantee you every single one of those people know who who steph curry is everything will know who Lebron James is the. Nba is the world's game. That I have a problem with that. You could have a problem with that but I'm telling you right now the NFL is is an American game period. They call football. Football is soccer in the rest of the world. American football fine. You might have you might be right about in America but the NBA on an international level is dwarfs the NFL times. A million. I think that the the stars you know like I'm pretty sure that the Memphis Grizzlies to walk around China and not have any issues that job that tons of people know job mirant yet. I bet they do. I bet they know his trial attempted dunk. Overly how good is he? He's good fun is that he's I but I think that the You know the the people that really control the NBA or not the NBA. Geez Nike and China's more say so in what's going on we saw that when the Houston Darryl Maure Tried to tried to tweet out that thing about Hong Kong and then boom. That was crazy. I know that was that was the by the weight that was the first misstep the NBA made in my opinion public. I'm sure they made a budge behind the scenes those the first misstep the NBA made publicly in my opinion all the stuff that went down to the NBA. Donald Sterling makes racist comments like that fucker out of there. Get them out of the people guys. WanNa come on the court wearing. I can't breathe. T shirts you kneel for a silent protest in the NFL. They're saying Rams Lil this dude. That's only because it's not on the collective bargaining agreement. If the you know the guys you don't be so emotional the NBA like being I know but the NBA. They have more control so they they had that stuff in the collective bargaining agreement. You they have to stand for the national anthem. It's in their contract and I know I'm Jay. But the rams come out of the tunnel with their hands up right to make up. Don't shoot hands up. Don't shoot all right. And then they get reprimanded for that by the League. It's a big issue for the League for the ramps the NBA players. Come OUT WITH ERIC. Garner. I can't breathe shirts on and they don't get anything. The League actually encourages them to express themselves. That's sort of difference. I know but there's but there's certain things like you know. A lot of things are just for show fine. You don't think that a lot of things like you know it's just it's like you know. I'M AGAINST PROTESTING AT WORK. Would you say you would protests? Were protests yeah. I don't like work protests again. You know if you were protesting at work how how brave you know take off work and then you guys want to protest the cops go down to the city hall right. You know Lebron James go stand at City Hall. That will be news. That is actually true. You know it's a good Eric. I don't care about like Oh. I have a T. shirt on before the child's game. I'm GONNA play that. I make thirty million dollars. I think You should make a t shirt Erikgriffin. I can't remember obviously the NBA. They they're such as like they`re. They're just liberal elite. You know what I mean. It's a liberal league that like no. I don't know about that man I don't know about. I don't know if that because yes I agree. I agree with you in that. They themselves are saying they're sensitive to issues. I wouldn't like I've seen it. They're trying to be sensitive to issues. They don't affect them while it's not going to affect them specifically but I guarantee you there are people in their worlds that it will affect and so they feel well and I think those are the people that they should be working with but this is their mouthpiece. I can't I can't fault them I it's easy you know I get it. I mean how easy it is. I'm saying Real No. It's easy to go make some t shirts and put him on. I'm saying to make some real change and have some real effects. I agree that. Y'All one step further you just don't just make an NBA cares commercial. Go Out in fucking care.

It is always fun when we can gather a funny friends who are into sports and we got one today. Erik Griffin is big clippers. Fan and the clippers are making their move as it were. I've watched the clippers closely. This season I will say it has been up and down. They have certainly been without all of their pieces performing to their highest levels at the same time it does feel like recently with their win over the nuggets and last night went on the road When recording this Against the thunder those are two very decisive wins. The thunder a team. They could meet in the playoffs. Decisive wins against two good west middle of the pack and high pack teams in the Western Conference It is feeling like Kawais team. It is feeling like Paul Georgia's team what it feels like and I will say this including it together is what feels like to me. When I watched the clippers play this will get into our top. Take where we're talking about. Who really is the dominant team? The shy who has the best shot as we are almost two thirds of the way through the season. It feels like the clippers have options. I don't know if the and we'll talk about this with Erik Griffin to. It feels like when they kick the ball to the corner and it goes to Paul George. You have confidence about what's going to happen when they set pick for Kawhi Leonard and he rolls around the pick. You've got you feel confident in what he's about to do you know that he can create his own shot. You know that when they need off they've got one too. I just Williams off the ban Lou Williams off the Bay Andrews Sham Landry. Shamet drains a lot of threes mantras herald is a guy who suddenly getting energy guy. Well he's guys scoring twenty five twenty six beverly issues beverly's playing great defense. Pat Beverley can knock down a shot once in a while when you need him but the thing is the clippers have multiple guys. You can look to and say see you think. They're going to be arrested because they're not putting all the load onto guys like the Lakers. But here's the deal. I've been watching the Lakers as well and I know people are talking about. How okay. So you know Milwaukee got the best record. They've got over fifty one of the best record but they're playing in the east and what happened the other night. I don't know if you saw this but Miami. Kinda ran them out like a Western team would run them out in Miami beat Milwaukee and showed the blueprint for how you beat Milwaukee a Guay Western teams will run them up. So it's to me again. You Jam the Middle. Up and say honest. Beat me from the outside. And until he can prove that he can do that he's not going to do it. And look there are other players Milwaukee. That's a good team that they're not fifty two and eight or whatever are by mistake right. That's not a coincidence. They're great however I think the team that in my pillow in my opinion who are positioned best to make a run and win the NBA. Finals is the Lakers. I think the Lakers. That's the team right now. Who after watching tons and tons of basketball this year? I say to myself you got two guys. So Lebron the knock on Lebron is. He's not the guy wants to take the shot the end of the game. He does not have to be in this situation. You got a knockdown shooter from the outside Danny Green. You got other guys like caldwell-pope uis hitting shots and and Bradley's hitting shots from the outside and then and you've got Kouzmine who's even an afterthought at this point but the inside outside game that you have with Anthony. Davis Davis is the guy who I think when the Games when the playoff games get tight and they're like one games. Every playoff game is like a one possession. Lebron get the ball. Who did they get the ball to at the very end of the All Star game on Lebron team they got it to? Anthony Davis allowed any hit. The two shots one shot to those outcomes that you get with Anthony Davis you get one of three outcomes. He's either going to make his shot he's going to get fouled on the way to making his shot or he's GonNa make shot and get fouled. There are very few and he's like a high percentage fee three hundred shooters say when the game is close at the end. You can just keep feeding the guy on the the brow on the inside and why him I just think first of all we're in for one of your twos threes because the NBA is the three heavy. I I hear you on that. But I'm saying what will happen in the game because there are guys on the Lakers that can knock down the three including Lebron. I saw him walk across center. Court and on the aren Lakers drain like a thirty nine foot three. I think there are guys in the early quarters. That will keep the game. Close for the Lakers. And then when it comes down to the end possession basketball. They have good defense. They can run guys out to the line. They can run people off the three point line. I think they're the type of team. I'm just GONNA say this. I think the Lakers are the type of team that if they if they have a chance to make that run. I think they will make the run. I'm going to predict it right now. I think I was listening to a bunch of other sports. Talk Chatter specifically you know. Listen to what Stephen Smith has stay. I mean come on come on get. What are we talking about? He'd become on Max. He's he really seems to think that the clippers other team and they both were defiant not to fight but they both were extremely confident. Like it's not even a discussion that the they they're like the Lakers could do it but they're like they aren't the best team. Both of them are saying that. The Clippers are the best team are the clippers in second or third place right now. They're in second place. Okay so every day. No one talking about Milwaukee. No one is talking about Milwaukee because I think like you said you there are ways to defeat Milwaukee look at who they are and you look at how they play and you say to yourself. That's a team that can beat. That's a team that has weaknesses that can get exposed. What do we say about the NBA? What do we say about the NBA Playoffs? Seven Game Series. Your weakness reasoning expose. Everything gets exposed your weaknesses getting exposed. That is what is interesting. So the regular season to me is like the L. Sats to law school or law. School becoming a lawyer or to me of your great at the L. Sats. You'll get into a great law. School doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be a good lawyer. If you're great in law school you can be great is a law student. But it doesn't necessarily mean you're going be a good lawyer or it is a microcosm of this year's NBA All Star game. The regular season is quarters one three flips back and forth. Some players have their things. They get hot quite Leonard scores. Twenty five points. Why Leonard was the MVP right but then in the fourth quarter when defense locks down when the playoffs starts the only person getting bucket so the only person getting opportunities was Anthony Davis right. And that's the guy who ended up ultimately winning the game so you think it's going to be the Lakers i. I'd be curious to hear what everyone else is saying. It's going to be the clip. I I understand that. And they're saying that Lebron even the Lebron they're saying is the number two in MVP voting right now behind Janas Okay behind the Greek freak. I hear you I hear you. I'm just saying I have watched enough in the eye test for me of this season. I've watched tons of Lakers and clippers games. I think first of all be interesting. When the Lakers and clippers matchup? Soon good for basketball. Now I watched. I watched the clippers play against Jayson tatum and the Celtics. And I'm like Jason James. The Best Guy in the court right now the best guy on the court when he's hot he's hard to beat to me. It's very exciting. It's Eh we're heading towards what I believe the fact we're GonNa reap the benefits of what happened this past off season the fact that co. I didn't also go to the Lakers the fact that the NBA he saved the NBA might save. 'cause now you've got a situation where so many teams feel like they've got a shot. You got four five six teams right now. So Miami just beat Milwaukee. Milwaukee is only lost eight times this year Miami. Just beat Milwaukee okay. Yeah if Miami beat them they say themselves. We can beat this team right. We have to we note. We have the formula. We got a great coach. We got Jimmy Butler. We can beat this team And Toronto's pricing. We can beat this team. Seventy sixers are like Joel embiid. It is here. We're great at home. Yes Joel Embiid. In a seven game series. You don't WanNa face that note but it's GonNa be exciting regardless of the talent level either way. I think whoever comes out of the West Winds. I think a team like the rockets is GonNa. They're gonNA make noise. Wow I think there are so many teams it's going to be the most excite. We're barreling towards what I consider to be hopefully the most exciting NBA playoffs. We've seen in in the most fraught Major League baseball season ever right. Those things will be happening simultaneously all right when we come back from the break. We're going to talk to our Buddy Erikgriffin. Get his take on the clips and see how he's feeling. I mean sometimes you get too close to situation you care too much. You can't speak.

I'm not saying no to that. Oh but but you're doing a show scream. That's Jack's job right. We all know that we're a break. Jack was like I was like wait. Leave it I had to hold him back. He was ready to fight in about because he was like. Hey years saying things about Cape Up that you can't take some things back the worst. I'm just kidding I would never very much okay. So all right so yeah keep that tastes fresh in your minds. Pose cheers otherwise smell. Don't smell the case in point. It all smells the same. Well that's vodkas. I'm going to rank this lower than the one we just. You know what the problem is is that you hate wagner the more you drink it tastes the same not fair that yeah okay. Yeah I think it's a little lower because it's just like sharper. Okay and I feel like good. Let me put my notes. Because I don't want him to go down in that one was lower. Wow I think I think the first one was the skull that one was the cheap shit and this next one is about the blow our coach. That's my guess and I didn't even try what was your. Did you smell it call. Just based on their reactions here. Oh guess we're going to be like actually I wasn't. I wasn't bringing up Australia's on fire to pat myself on the back. Should I wanted to. Why did but What I really wanted to say is that a lot of people have been donating a lot of money? METALLICA donated seven fifty. Talk Chris. Fifty thousand. Obviously metallica the band band. Chris Hemsworth Thor donated a million DiCaprio donated three million alien. Kylie Jenner DiCaprio. The Cop Leonardo Nice Kylie Jenner one million yuan. Elton John One one million of Ethan and Klein Teddy fresh fifty thousand seven hundred dollars. Here's where my question comes in now. I'm not usually someone on money. Is Money donations donation law. Good but what do you make of Jeff Bezos donating six hundred ninety thousand dollars. A lot of people may the comparison parison. That's literally equivalent of a middle class person donating. I don't know sixty nine dollars or so. I think no. Yeah I think it was like that was the argument. I think it it was You should have made that makes sense. Six minutes yeah. Don't yeah they're going to donate that. Linear B makes that in six minutes. Love it love it. That's the thing is I have lots of rocket ships. I need to shoot off a bitch. Move when you're like I was wondering what's with the word number so it's a million Australian dollars. Yeah that's why it's a weird. He knows what a dollar is you saving himself money. Yeah Australia people buy from Amazon cheers. Cheers all right jazz. Jazz Jazz. Might as I think. I know that it'll taste the same. It really goes wrong. I'm I'M GONNA say one was the best and then maybe two is. The worst and three was awesome. If Dan if they were all the worst all right. I'll I'll put myself out on the live. Brought to is the Burnett and three point already proved my point. If these were all different vodkas to second one tasted worse. Okay okay third. So my guess was the first one was the worst Burnett to was skull. Three was the night shift. I guess it was also okay so go ahead Dan what what was it. I'm like Jack got it right. Oh wait what was what was it the same saying Oh for the first one was the call the second one was cheap. Shit Yeah and then the third one was the greatest. How but that said we still did call it? I feel like I mean. They don't they don't yet we were able to turn what was what. They're lucky. Mad Hoes Mad. Got The nice one right to but granted I mean they. They both viscerally recoiled. As soon as they tasted that Burnett it seemed happy. The lesson the seven dollar vodka. What can my tastes like Shit but you get to the higher class vodkas right? I think there's a there's there's the crappy shit and twenty dollars up it's probably. Let's say what I love is the Vodkas that like. They don't know how to make themselves seem better. So they gluten free on the label of Made. I mean what's fucking alcohol. Yeah potatoes Gluten potato by the very nature of it is not in the juice that you squeeze out of it. I don't know how Vodkas made they say. Squeeze the juice that data's yeah well they leave all the gluten behind so jeff. bezos says a SCUMBAG. Anyway I WANNA add anything to that I do actually the only because it's somewhat relevant So the reason I have this hideous Goddamn Creepy uncle peto stash. Right now is because Last week we did a little Charity Live Stream on twitch for Yeah Yeah we did just because we. It felt like we had to do something because we have viewers in Australia. And we wanted to like you know reach out so this was one of the you know how when you do a donation. Oh Uh charity thing. You have like goals if you raise one hundred dollars. We'll do this if you raise. Five thousand dollars will do that. This was some one of those tears like I will shave my beard. So how long you gotTa Keep It. I think a month no lock the I know it sucks raise quite a bit. You raise fifty thousand right. We he raised fifty thousand Australian dollars which I think translates to like maybe thirty six Seems a lot of Koala hopes. Though thank you thank hey thank you I just WanNa say there's a reason to suggest and it's not because I think it's a fashionable thing. I didn't think so bad. I mean yeah yes it's clean it up a little well you got like whiskers going over your lip. I would recommend a rough got a guy for Christie's Pitney Pitney. Let's say he doesn't want to.

"Studios this is red eye radio hello and welcome I'm Erik partly as we move into a Thursday how are you doing really good let's just go down to the topics because we've we've got a ton of things to talk about here today no time for fun what I'm kidding yeah getting ugly there's always there's always just just just relating the news and analyzing what's going on in this crazy world is is is a lot of fun the impeachment trial is here we'll talk about is there I have to put this in a question is there substance or a lack of substance in the articles of impeachment is it flammable or inflammable okay it it I'm I'm telling you I just I I I still just shake my head I know a lot of conservatism from supporters addicted to watching the TV and watching the articles of impeachment and and I had to tell one person they stop torturing yourself yeah there yeah yeah you're you're watching the grass grow at right it's it's like why why are you why are you bothering with the the the falloff or the ceremony involved in it what do you think you're gonna watch it and it's going to make you happy you know the weird look on Nancy's face she's handing out pens it was weird did you see that I mean it was just a yes just this moment but up there on on her podium I noticed she wasn't war wearing all black well I and and and I just caught bits and pieces of it but I burst out laughing yeah look I'm not angry because I know who these people are with that none of this is a surprise hello hello trump supporters conservatives have you been paying attention no they the the why are you getting angry for the last for the last three years they accuse the pregnancy brought it up yesterday she tweeted about Russia we can't let Russia affect the election Russia isn't even a part of this impeachment no no it's all over the place I mean she's it's they are they are insane but zero back Wednesday or something I I mean right yeah she's some what but they're they're reaching their reaching now and throwing everything at the president this is this is going to be at everything they've done up until now which was nothing and and I thought to myself as I'm watching it play out you know with the tweet everything else in the whole impeachment thing I thought they really do believe I mean this they believe this is their hail Mary I mean they believe it's a positive yes I who was it was a crystal wasn't that wrote you know hello she's failure on impeachment this is CNN CNN well and and that's my my my thing is to trump supporters in conservatives look just focus on the substance of focus on the substance and or lack of substance which we actually have here in the articles of impeachment and everything that they do but don't get yourself upset by what is obvious remember they are still talking about the fact that they believe the trump collude with the Russians to hack or change the outcome of the election when they're the ones who did it and and so there should just be it's almost as if for for some of of of my acquaintances on social media like they just woke up today they've been rip van Winkle in it for the last three years they were how did these Deborah glad alright Campbell waged really did you did you just what do you understand who these people on the issues they are in my opinion on the issues I'm not saying they are they're full of hatred but that's obvious with no man we've known that for decades in so just focus on a brief look focus on that but I'm not that I'm anyone to give out advice because I can't loose it myself but it just gets a little bit frustrating their things I look at and go with this just so obvious you know don't don't destroy your day don't destroy your weekend on this over the last three years there have been tremendous improvements because we found out we have found out the truth and that's the most important thing is finding out the truth in all of these particular issues out there so we will we will get to the I just feel sorry for the folks that are just live it I won't this is who they are I well I mean if you weren't honestly if you weren't laughing at the whole thing I it really was it it was you know what it reminded me of it reminded me of a fire drill at school I mean when you knew it was a fire drill yes you know it was like okay here we go get in single file I'm think of myself as a kid excuse me ma'am but if this buildings on fire I'll be running ahead of everybody else and another Seinfeld ups about that I I'm not going to I'm not going to be standing so I'm not going to I'm not going to stand in line in my classroom well the building burns I'm I'm gone and and I used to kind of stuff at it you know as as kids we would just okay here we go single file go outside to wait for ten minutes this whole thing was like a fire drill with a bunch of children right I understand all of these people are political activists they're not even look they're not even politicians trying to do what's best for the country they're simply political activists who are driven by by hate the emotion of their hatred and they don't do things they don't do things as it's obvious they don't do anything that has any type of critical thinking or logic to it that's who they are that's the substance of their soul and so once you understand that there's an expectation that okay this is exactly what they're going to do time to destroy their narrative again time to destroy their talking points again and again and again and again and we know this because we've been doing it again and again night after night morning after morning day after day week after week month after month year after year decade after decade for me now going on thirty one years so I might thing is just you know it instead of a does it look instead of being upset or shocked by it just you know focus on focus on the substance of your argument and the truth and you will you win every time this is the way that it's going to be for a long time in this country yeah this is not going to change in our lifetime right so you don't just don't destroy your life over people that are driven by hatred the emotion of the of of of hatred the emotion of greed and I say greed because we want to win any way that you that we possibly can this is the interesting thing the people to talk about greed and how they're trying to fight greed on the left are actually the greatest people they want power and control and they will lie about anything to do with they will destroy people's lives they will they you know they will live they will come naive so it is the expectation that they're going to do this just be prepared be prepared with the truth because as we've seen in the long run you and I were here three you know three years ago where people calling up it you know but a two and a half three years ago people calling up saying trump is I'm a trump supporter he screwed he's never going to get out of any of this he he they're they're gonna get him for Russia collusion whatever he has done nothing and what happened the exact opposite yeah it took like took a long time but the exact opposite happen because the truth eventually a you know came out so we'll get to that a more by the way the the way out I know a lot of people are making a lot of fun of it but but it actually there are some substance to those SO contestants of jeopardy not you know not being able to name Adam Schiff yeah we kind of talked about this and and ask the question how many people are paying attention to the impeachment thing altogether yeah if you're paying attention at all you know who he is it might not just impeachment Russia collusion oh sure we're we're going back to work we're going back to three years in that that his name is better all over the place if you listen to any political shows you know who Adam Schiff is and so when you go on to Jeff and sometimes on jeopardy there answering questions on my I've no idea I have no idea I have no idea and then the one that's like all this is so obvious yeah there's no and it's not like a man on the street kind of thing it's jeopardy yeah is that a game that you that the reason we shout out the answers when we know them is because we're proud that we know the answers because it's not it most well I'll just say a number of those questions are not easy to answer and and so that we'll talk more about that what Bernie said to warn hmmm yeah U. S. that question high sided pick up on it and they did they did that because somebody had to we knew we would hear it but you could tell what Bernie was doing at the end so we're talking about the handshake at the end of the debate as they were all about to leave they were all clearing the stage Bernie leans over extends his hand out very clearly and deliberately she starts walking towards him and pulls her hands in and so it was I mean she she's clearly taking him to task and then you can see what he's doing with his hands after that he's doing what Bernie dots Bernie lays down a lot and he was laying down you can see is you could say Mrs like Swalwell remember with the gun buy back thing okay we'll do the buy back we'll do the buy back it was owned by the first guy who quit the presidential campaign think about that quote in the primary when I first saw the headline that that said I think you called me a liar national TV when I first saw the headline I thought that was burning saying that because that would be logical because they've accused him of doing something that he said he didn't do right so they're lying about him and it was it was worn same to Bernie I think you called me a liar on national TV what I think you called me a liar and national D. V. you know let's not do this right now if you want to have that discussion will have the discussion yeah and to which warned what replied any time you you called me a liar than Sanders continued and you told me all right let's not do it now yeah but when I first saw that the first deadline so she was the aggressor saying you called me a lie in because you said you never did that and you didn't do it therefore you're calling me a liar I went whoa whoa so here we go we get to that I a height plurality of West Virginia voters review Joe Manchin senator Joe Manchin a Democrat negatively if the votes to convict crop of forty eight percent we view him negatively if he did only I think twenty percent would be would positive in West Virginia phase one of the China trade deal is signed will get to that what is important to the Mexican voter a new poll Mexican of war okay because what we're talking about the election in Mexico what is important I have no idea I don't even know if that was a forty and slip I don't know what it was about what is important to the American voter a new poll is out there and more all coming up place your calls and comments eight six six ninety right I.

"And it's it's not to diminish that but but it's a different sport I will agree with you. what it is yes and for whatever reason it's not looked upon that way for all we want is a reason yeah just for it to be addressed with a coherent reason why the idea now. I think in your profession of of how competitive it is between organizations wins front offices owners are competitive with each other. How much are you ever willing to share with guys you compete against. I've I've had coaches in a league who who are great admirers of yours who'd say I'd love to build a relationship with them.

You haven't been the different guys have different places because they've worked.

You're going to give something away there that he had scouted her scene. But how do you guys view that within balancing act you know I think it turns out to be relationships ships. As far as I'm concerned I don't go out my way to call share and I get calls. They get a lot of calls and so does slow but it is. You know it's it's a it's a telephone you know when you go to a clinic or something you share with whatever you're trying to share but it is a competition still too and I understand. That's another thing that I've learned. I remember we had Riley opened the door. We had a practice I had practice at your facility because rows at anticipation ship. We'd practice at your facility and we beat you. Guys and Tim comes up to me well. They'll be no more practicing at the Miami Him. Eat you know and that's how you feel like. I have things that I'll do. Anyone can practice in our facility. I'll do that but then I have things things that I am very quirky about you know earlier when I was very quirky about if I saw my assistants talking to the other systems like what are you guys talking talking about what possible conversations right now and this is are complaining about. Ah There's like I say we're not quite as iron curtain as we used to. Yeah we do open up our doors a little bit and you know we don't really necessarily go out of our way to network and kind of an introvert anyway and it just kind out of lines up during the off season. I like to go visit football programs. Just because it's different catches my interest a little bit more on it. You know you talking basketball with your staff and the other people all year long. I like seeing something a little bit different. I relate to them and and it usually ends up being not tactical discussions but it always comes down to personality management and and that's what I find you know probably most interesting about this business. What's the one or two days you guys ever spent outside of basketball whether it was at a football football facility you around ballot check in Boston spinal. You've gone all over. Nfl College football what was one you walk out of there said wow how or a dinner with somebody who was completely outside your element and said I got more out of that than I would have to for a specific reason I saw Pete Carroll uh twice just because not because he's winning super bowls actually before his first super bowl there and there's more just his personality as a so much different than me. I have mentioned I'm an introvert and I like to seek out people. That are a lot different so two years goes you know who is going to see in college. Football is going to see a Dabo swinney any and I'm friends with Butch Jones is very good friend of mine so these to compete against each other but he's such an incredible personality as man if I could have like one percent of so much better coach and ideal relate to my players better but I walked out of both of those not only amazed at thera ability to relate and just the one in nine personalities but also just how you you walk out of their thinking wow. This is my best Ashrat in two days later. They probably have a twenty five other people say to care for me as well just his energy who if you ask anyone. HP Carol Everyone's getting the wrong all coaching and there's no way you see that you know how Bella check with the one for me just because he's so different and I had a chance to speak a couple of times and I love that's phenomenal to there. I would always go to their offense of meetings right before the game I would he gives you great access and you would sit there and I remember the one game they basically said what they were going to they do and they did it and then one guy is outside of sports that just blew me away as Malcolm Glatt well. I had a meeting with him and I realize I said I'm not very smart. You know at that but his ability to kind of understand people was incredible. Docs Bo this was this was a lot of fun. I appreciate you guys doing this. We could do another hour on a whole `nother set of topics but I appreciate you guys doing it. It's data yeah yeah. I love getting spokesman.

"Very one welcome to another edition of the wards pod and something I've wanted to do you for some time with the podcast I hope to do more of it this season and moving forward getting some of the smartest most accomplished people in the game together to talk about their craft the league their journeys and we do that this week with two championship coaches the Miami Heat's Erik Spoelstra and the Los Angeles Clippers Doc rivers and our visit about the league the Celtic heat rivalry that really reshape the modern. NBA Pat Riley and both of their connections and influence with him and a lot more. I hope you enjoy listening doc rivers Erik Spoelstra podcasts as much as I think the three of us did recording it so let's get right to it. Doc Rivers and Erik Spoelstra Doc rivers Los Angeles Clippers coach our exposure Miami Heat coach between you two two two thousand four hundred and thirty eight regular season games coached fourteen hundred seventeen wins six. NBA Finals two championships for Erik Spoelstra won for Doc rivers and four won't pause now which I appreciate. That's the moment he goes absolutely. It's funny guys. We're in Chicago. NBA NBA coaches meetings are here all your peers here except for a couple who are off at USA basketball and it's funny to see you guys and I see some your competitors editor seeing each other in the lobby and guys the relationships in the league among coaches and what's interesting. Is You know you guys are the sandwich of you know. It's funny all the owners the players the fans like the only thing they all have in common is they all think coach better than you guys. I don't think the players think think they could be owners. I'm not sure the owners think that can be players but in a lot of ways your fraternity is like the frontline of taking it from. I'm above below outside your the clearinghouse for it and you kind of see it. I think with your profession that there is an empathy for each other. There's no doubt you know I've done it. This is my twenty I think twentieth or twenty first year in a row at least starting camp and when I look at all the people who have coming on and good coaches you know that have come and gone and look at some of the crazy firings that have happened in that time span you do you you. you start understanding each other. You know it's madness in some ways but it's a love in another way and sharing and having having people to share stuff with important yeah and he just look across the sideline signed in January and you can see the bags under everybody's. We're all gone through his grandma. We love what we're doing. Obviously it's unbelievable profession to be a part of but there is that empathy and it's not like we're in college. We're not recruiting against each other and it's it's not quite as cutthroat like that and it's really just the game that we can bond on this time of year and soon as we sat down you guys already talking about what what your teams are doing in the off season conditioning in. Eric and I were talking about this earlier like you hit Labor Day and what happens to your like Labor Day. He come out of that. You know you got the coaches meetings and campus starting this month. There's your body almost like you're rounding third heading for training camp as the sun hit you after Labor Day. Yes absolutely you know my letters. Go out earlier to invite all the players back at the Labor Day this year. It was a week later because our facility wasn't ready to receive them yet. We we're redoing our facility and it just takes on. It's like like the sign of the season starts. I know October fourth or fifth or whenever it is training start but I think for most teams most coaches and staff it starts the day after Labor Day. You teams get back together. your staff's get together and you all of a sudden take more serious tone about the rest of the summer you too. It's I found an interview. You did years ago. Doc both of you are kind of clinic rats and I know SPO- will whether it's your both in floor living together for extended period both coaching in Florida and and you were still in Orlando. Your family and I saw an interview with you're you're talking about. You're one of those state high school clinics and you look out in the stands and you see but you know high school coaches college coaches taking notes and I think you are in Boston at at the time and then you look out and who do you see with a notebook was a cisco because I thought that was the other one but it it is what we do and I don't. I don't think I've ever been at a game that I wasn't involved in didn't learn something where I didn't steal something you know. I tell told the story about against Cleveland in game seven. We ran a plated. My Son Austin's highschool team and I saw ought to weeks earlier and I was thinking that's an interesting play and you run it. It works you know so yeah. I don't think we ever stop on every turn it on on all off and you can never stop learning. Never Stop Learning this game early on it was more stuff and then as you evolve evolve. I think is amazing that James. It's funny you bring up the game because there was another one in Miami point nine seconds left game tied and you ran one of those circle offense. Rondo got the lobby and then over so pissed after the ray of Garnet Pierce basically basically thought it was going to go for sure to one of those guys and you're a lob to Rondo and then afterwards I read that you said that you cut them blaming yourself. Ah Trump pulled up a video guys. We're starting to scout on all the you've see we have something to get the Celtics time. We plan as as head coaches both of you have has either of you experienced anything as intense is what you went through and those. Celtic heat series rivalries and what's interesting is two thousand eight the Big Three's put together and Boston via trade and then Miami respond two thousand ten via free agency and Lebron hadn't gotten past Boston Cleveland. That was some of the thought of going to Miami. Miami and those two teams change the course of this league well. You know you're right. As far as the three you know it went from the one superstar let's try to win to two superstars and then it went to the threes amazing X. going back to two in some ways again to match up with all the teams and you know. I think we had the same situation I would say this. I I got Kevin Paul and Ray at the right time. Sometimes you need players at the right time and for me for them. It was the right time for them to try to win. You know they had all all three have done a lot of stuff individually they. They had a lot of awards but it was time for winning for them and so I got him at the exact time that they needed that then unfortunately when you know we you were starting to go down the other way they come in with with their version of the big three and now I felt facing them yeah what was interesting from our standpoint. I don't think Kevin and Paulin wanted to give them that. They they really wanted to beat them because they didn't want another big three. I've is interesting how how that all played out game six SPO- in Boston in two thousand twelve two thousand eleven you go to the the NBA finals you lose to Dallas. You come back. You're up to now. You're down three to you're going to Boston you coach. Game Mhm seven in the NBA finals. You've coached won a championship in a game five. I guess in a game seven in your life. Did you ever feel like you were coaching a bigger game that game six in moss down three to you know what's really interesting about that series to a game one we win probably about fifteen points and we felt like we're in control after one game and then game two boom all of a sudden it goes. Ot and we win that one just like you said we're too. WHOA and we go to Boston and it is an absolute dogfight and that one ends up going over time and we were actually up in the fourth quarter. Most of the fourth quarter combust came back and took that game just shows you how quickly serious can change and you feel like you're in control. We felt like we were playing basketball and it's two one and then all of a sudden the momentum shifts and game four is you can imagine in the garden they take full control and blow us out of that game and his to to going back. Miami and it's an absolute dogfight and they absolutely just took our hearts out in game five and it was tough it. There's a real competitive game and after being up to going into Boston and have overtime game. You think you would be in control of the series and we were down in the series. We all felt it. We did not practice the next day I had a team meeting and we just talked about are wise and why we put this team together and and we're going to have to face the team that we knew we'd have to go through and the Boston Celtics. Were that team for us. it was that team for Lebron before he got to us. It was that team even though we didn't meet them late in the play asked with Wayne we had enough built up dislike for that team and we knew we had to go through them and going into the garden. Yeah you could hear it. You could hear the intensity level when they knew they thought they could close the series. we all felt it but it was it was a calmness going into that there was a quiet confidence going into it and then when he saw Lebron's look. I know that that look is pretty famous by now. Yeah I think everybody just felt a higher level of confidence going into that game probably his biggest game of his career. When you look back because you know he had one yet right you know the year before they loaded Dallas and now all of a sudden you know he'd probably had the most pressure you I know because the title and so funding going into that game preparing for an onslaught from Dwayne and in the brunt because we just know who they are but the Lebron performance that night was was incredible as more shooting. You remember like the driving being in passing. We thought we were prepared for but we were not prepared for the way he shot the ball that night. Forty five points fifteen rebounds I think and then we come back and game seven and Bosh at brought him off the bench he'd been out since the Indiana series with those abductor strain and came back and gave us a huge fourth quarter three three three threes. Two threes in the corner just gave us an incredible boost going down the a stretch yeah. I went back. I was looking at the clips of Chris and a couple of Roth Lebron drive and and that was new that was a wrinkle you hadn't Chris suddenly shot a handful all season and you're said he was coming off the injury and that was really you always see him standing in that corner. Oh yeah because he had made threes and and you know listen early on. We didn't mind him taking him. You know but we didn't know he's. GonNa make them and made them over and over again and now you really. You've been there whereas a coach where you have to make decision. Do you change your coverage of the you believe what you think you know that he can't keep making them We changed our coverage a little bit in that game. I've been in games where I just decided. There's no way a guy can keep making them. I've Lost Dame's like that as well and he wasn't in the series series and I played the game before a little bit but this was really his first time to really get out nine playoffs since he was hurt when you're in a series like that and and you're balancing the idea of staying with what your core beliefs are and what you of how you played who you've been about versus an adjustment changing doing something is that as difficult decision for coach when you get deeper into a playoff series about vow where you go away from because it's that you tell your players. This is who we are..

"One of the problems of discussing Erik Jan Newson. Is that just about the only source of info on his early? Life is auto biography. My lifeline which he wrote in nineteen thirty at the age of forty one. Unfortunately, it contains a number of stories that are either hard to verify are downright. Unbelievable. It's less serious autobiography and more of a book length advertisement for his mystical powers. Newson never misses an opportunity to paint, his background in the most impressive almost unbelievable terms. We do know that Eric Jan Newson was born Herman Steiner in Vienna on June second eighteen eighty nine in his auto biography who Newson tells how his thirty one year old father Siegfried Stein's Neider headed loved with his twenty year old mother Julie comb, his father was poor. And Julie's wealthy father was against the match. So he had the pair thrown in jail. For vagrancy. Even though Julie was far along pregnancy at the time. Let me let me out. Yeah. Yeah. You'd be surprised. How often I hear that lady? Telling you my baby is coming. Born wrong. Somebody call a doctor. She gave birth just fifteen minutes later, or so the story goes and was promptly released from prison, citing his opportune entrance into the world, a nuisance took personal credit for getting her out of that cell in the story of his birth on Newson, make sure to say that he originally came from a wealthy family something he would emphasize throughout the rest of his life. The also left out the fact that he was Jewish when he wrote his out, oh by Agassi in nineteen thirty anti-semitism was already rampant in Germany. So it was much easier to pass a gentile after it was published. He changes history again and claim that he was actually from the Danish aristocracy and had only been adopted by Jewish family. His father was an actor. And his mother was a singer and young Herman spent much of his early life on the road, traveling through Italy and Austria with various small time acting troops in eighteen ninety two when Herman. Was traveling with his family through Romania. He claims that he had his first experience of clear avoidance. He said he got an urge to pull young playmate earner out of her apartment and out of the building they ran to a nearby graveyard where they hid while her apartment exploded, he was only three years old. According to the autobiography earner eventually rejected him by falling in love with the neighbors. Handsome, son leading him to conclude quote women are evil, which is a pretty bold. Take for a three year old when Harmon was nine the family moved back to Vienna. Where his mother died after a long illness. Herman's father was struggling to make ends meet as a salesman so to save money and for a change of scenery. He and Herman moved to a small check down named Bosco vici autobiography tells a bizarre story about his time in Boskovich e saying that he and several of his friends decided to play Niro and burn. The village to the ground as the villagers came out to watch the fire an Torius the named Grosso ran out of the mill the police had been hunting for Grosso and Newson got praised for bringing him to Justice. However, he only got a small reward. Instead of the big bounty offered for Grosso. After all he had said the town on fire. It's great. If weird story it's a shame. It's completely made up the real Grassle died in eighteen eighteen eighty years before Herman's time in the village, the mixing of truth, and almost ridiculous bragging continues throughout his book. There's even a part where he brags about how he fell in love with and seduced a forty five year old woman when he was fourteen it's like the book was written entirely in humble brags in nineteen. Oh, three a fourteen year old Herman followed in his parents footsteps to become an entertainer joining a circus. He learned the ways of mental ISM and specialized in demonstrating feats psycho Caen, the act of moving objects with your mind, while traveling in circus, he learned a lot of artistry both magical and con that would lead him to his next big job in nineteen ten at the age of twenty one he stopped performing and said. Down in Vienna. There. He became chief reporter for a newspaper der blitz or the lightning. Unfortunately, dare blitz had a reputation for earning money in ways that didn't involve selling papers.
