Twitch's Recent Sports Properties Show Longterm Plan for the Platform
"On Sports properties and recently we've seen big moves towards that goal. I'm a dream since the Esports minute from E Sports Network, which is of course the home for Esports now will always be the platforms origination. But clearly the platform has been evolving firstly. There is a massive rise in just chatting as a category and in a lot more casual games and politicians using the platform. So there's that Evolution but there's also the evolution towards traditional Sports and we've seen this as well during the time when Twitches found Newfound competition, there are major leagues and major creators that are moving off platform over the last two years while the mixer experiment Network YouTube live has snatched up the CDL and o w l will also grabbing some big streamers in the process, but I honestly don't think twitch really cares that much they still are the dominant force in the mark. And command the largest audiences plus they have these grander plans. This isn't really a super controversial take twitch has been experimenting with more traditional sports events on the platform for the last few years. Most notably Thursday football games Coast trained with creators from the last few weeks two pieces of news have shown Twitches interest in traditional Sports and how it's continuing one was FIBA and the other was the kickoff of the fan control football game. Let's start with viva viva is the international basketball association the Federation dial international basketball amateur is where the FIBA acronym came from and now it's just the international basketball association today. They signed a multi-year deal with twitch people as far away from the NBA when it comes to viewership or relevance, but it does around the qualifying tournament for basketball at the Olympics as well as the bass World Cup and the World Cup and Hoops is definitely not the same as the World Cup in soccer, but it's still an important Sports property as part of the deal with twitch feeble broadcast 600 hours of basketball games on Twitch every year wage. Also be lighting up deals with Co streamers and creating more interactivity during broadcasts that interactivity is what twitch could offer and is also makes the fan control Football League pretty unique. The FCF is a new property that is not a few weeks on Twitch to pretty good viewership. It's cool because fans call the plays live during the game literally they vote on them and then the team runs them fans also have control over branding and player decision as well. The FCF utilizes Twitches ability for interactivity to basically play Madden in real life. Even Johnny Manziel is in the league for now. These are basically see tears Sports properties, but they show a month for twitch going forward the next time the meteorites come up for one of the major sports leagues Twitches definitely going to be having discussions. They've already cut in by having some of the NFL
Bayern Munich go 10 points clear in Bundesliga
"Start in the boondocks league. Your league leaders buyer munich. Child hurt the berlin just before they head off to fiba club world cup and get a one nothing win rare robert levin penalty miss in this one goal coming in the twenty. First minute from kingsley. Call on that. The difference by munich on picking up the three points and what it means in the boondocks league table is the firing are now ten points clear of second place. Leipzig the big gap continues to grow as byron munich cases yet. Another league title. Look at that and dortmund both right now. Outside of the champion spots well stevie. We expected to win. That match was nervous at the end. Well the the long of the game when on the more heffer actually you could see the believed that they could get something you know they could. They probably could and should have been three octane. This game could have been over but it wasn't me dope ski obviously missing. The penalty was huge. And as i said the longer it went on the stock to to get closer and closer culminating with two minutes to go all the way through hostage score but just just weighed. In the game's over.
What Kemba Walker’s Impending Return Means for the Boston Celtics
"I was laid off the last couple of medical reports. I really thought they would get to around now and then start to assess whether he can do anything at all. But the report the report is super positive to next Thursday 11 to relax keeping keeping your pants for a second know but look this you can't ask for more. Now. This is what you're looking for. It's dead, you know him starting to do actual basketball activity and that's what he's doing. So he's going to practice there's a report now. He might have been played by Friday. I you know, I don't there's people here and again, I'm one of them wondering what are we going to get out of him? Is it going to be 80% ninety percent hundred percent the reports today where that he was dead. No, really really good. So Bobby, what do we have? We have Brad here. Yep. I'm going to play. This is Brad Stevens talking about Kemba returning off-campus starting to rejoin the team in practice. The next progression for him is to get out there on the court with other guys on the team. He's been out there with coaching staff. He's been out there both one-on-one on one workouts, but also in doing is reads and four on four and five on five stuff, but next step now is to play some live in practice some 5 and with our guys, I don't think he's too far Johnny looks great. He feels great. Probably the best these felt since he's been here, you know coming straight to Boston from China last year in the In the FIBA games and then you know obviously in the bubble you had the ramp up and then by the end of it he's you know playing large minutes and we're in the middle of a playoff run and so he feels great dog looks good. Although I don't think our coaches present much of a challenge except for one. So it's a little bit of a, you know, catch-twenty-two from that regard, but he we're encouraged and I'm sure he'll be back sometime here in the near future, but we're going to still progress through the next steps of workouts and practice and those type of things. Mark Murphy, okay. So that's as good as it gets he's practicing in full with the team the report that he could be back in a week and Brad saying he looks nice as he's looked you can't ask for more now. It's just a matter of what we see. So I'll I'll shut it I can't wait. I don't I don't care if he's 70% it's a huge difference wage. Cuz right now every single thing that we're looking for from this team. It's amazing again offensively. They've been what they've been because of Tatum and brown so much when you know smart hasn't really I found his groove or found his spot. We thought he might end up having to supplement more offense with Kemba out and with Hayward gone hasn't really happened. They're getting it from kind of strange places, but just to take a little pressure off those jobs and have another guy out there who's a professional scorer and that's just what he does in life. It's going to be great, you know, just whatever minutes you get and whatever contributions you get. It's just a net-positive.

What PS5 Launch Games We Could (and Hope to) See
"Right and if it's not most of the current library are you can play why would you want to upgrade unless it's your job to upgrade anyway moving on from his has created another one that I think we'll see across gen ecosystem with black ops five also the reports earlier this year that obviously the cycle wouldn't have a black ops next year but there were reports from Kentucky that essentially issues behind the scenes of call of duty have all is tracked to take over the project this is all alleged not convert by activision and their then putting the priority into making black ops five now black ops as a franchise is is on Google Seo trance-like as big as call of duty like people associate the two brands almost so I think having black ops at the beginning of a generation having blackout it became so much more popular than I think a lot of us were expecting at the launch of regeneration saying that ecosystem will be there for you on launch day makes a lot of sense called duty has been there for a lot of generations with xbox one and ps four I think it was that funny thing ghosts was a launch title and do the comparisons where like in the three sixty version and it's too like laundry machines in a room and then the next Gen version it's like a four all day visual changes in so called is no stranger to straddling the generation line so expect that to happen this do you think I mean I don't Wanna get ahead of you on this list but I'm GonNa Police do you think anything that's going to launch on the playstation five we'll be Christian party maybe but not first party I think anything and it's really hard to say because like I do agree that this generation will be more incremental I think it will be a slower start for a lot of people buying onto this new gen I lot of this stuff has to be because the idea that you'd release a call of duty or as second any of the major sports games on only the next you just can't you lose so much money investors would be so angry the player would be frustrated like it just doesn't make sense to but at the same time people need those familiar experiences on their next Gen but that's that's exactly what my point is of like I I don't think you're right I don't think there's any financial case to be made essentially for anyone to skip ps four in twenty twenty great and you you you would not want to you wouldn't want to be that development that's working on a launch title for like playstation five only except for exclusives and that's the thing even then I think it would be a bit of a Sony all through the money at them yeah I it makes financial senses if it is Sony making it happened whether that's a first party game or them paying very heavily four and exclusive to only come to that system because they're going to need some of that to pull people over like you're saying they need those draws but it's definitely it's it's it's less enticing I think for developers to go from PS four five than it is to go from three to four and that's maybe what you're hinting at implying when when you say incremental it's like people can take that out of context and have it means something more harsh than you think but then the draw is not quite as much there for a lot of people when the PS four is still a wonderful system with a lot of lively games to play out the shift like a you know we look at the game service is sort of like a bad a bad thing but it's also stuff like like remix siege or or fortnight or d Sydney where they're just like yeah we put out put out a new thing in the box every two years but in the space between those things we like continue supporting it and you create a a player ecosystem and you create like I mean it's it's they're basically like little social networks where it's like you have people who come here all the time and they hang out and their friends and this is there this is their activity so like why would you want to throw that out every every time a new thing comes along and like with yeah with with seizures great example too because they've said that they're they're gonNA keep updating game for I think it's like ten years they first announced it they said it's just gonNA live they're not making each to they're just going to keep updating this game and linkages are really good candidate for something like ubisoft coming out and saying hey there's GONNA BE A. PS Five version of siege on launch day can have all these such and such and such improvements graphically obviously because you can't get too much because then you start having a competitive advantage and Yada Yada Yada but I think that's a very good candidate for something like that same with I think games fortnight and everything else like those have to be there if not launch pretty soon after yeah and we're moving on from that one quick one which I think we can all pretty much agree on all the sports games Madame Fiba NHL NBA will probably all be there one from our own Brian Altana who can't be with us because he's at a preview event which we will not speak of at the moment this came from him bloodborne remains third and his reasoning here of it the reason here's weirdly bloodborne is one of the only games like especially exclusive to not get a PS four pro upgrade the patch like it didn't get one in the same way other first party games did that allowed it to play more smoothly on a PS four pro have all the bells and whistles that are pro gives you compared to a launch ps four and it weird he is neglected in that sense even though that game is beloved and it's still talked about all the time and Sony is well aware of the Phantom of it so doing a bloodborne remastered one get you really big name that you know everyone loves give people a reason to pick it up again which is always the big reason when you do a re master and it's probably not as big a lift assay working on blood born to see I was GonNa say I'd love to see blood with the launch time do you think we will know realistically but you know that's different on my wishlist because blood born is one of those games where everyone's just like oh come on please give us a sequel game time like I just I want more I will be with that said I will be extremely satisfied with a with a bloodborne remastered and I would actually get a playstation five just yeah I know that's terrible it's not like sending in money or anything it's just like the idea of what that game will look like on playstation five makes me want to weep right so I'm definitely not the right person for that because I still haven't finished the regular version but if I'm like keeping I wonder what I'll finish that will I have children by then it was very possibly we'll avatar to be out who knows but like I'm sort of chipping away at didn't take my time with it and if they come out and they're like hey we're putting out a new better version I'll be like can I bring my save files like no I don't WanNa fight that horse again Brian's right in so far as like that is a real night Brian it's it wouldn't be I mean I say this with very little understanding of technology you save his dot p. s. five and it's good to go exactly it wouldn't it wouldn't be as massive just the graphics four J. Pig Lodge it wouldn't be as l. left as bloodborne to of course but it would be a really well regarded name I would love to say that as launch title be very interesting I think it makes sense and we'll get into more Sony exclusive stuff now as we go through the last one breathing I want to mention all kinds of sandwich this we know of your will they'll be supported on PS five they're not announcing plans for a PS VR to it looks like right now for launch asking those going to probably come a year or two in but I still think you need to give a reason for people want to play. PS Vietnam ps five and my two guesses would be an obviously they'd be crossed Astro about two and a new PS VR game the first by INSOMNIAC as party for PS VR in has a big history with vr some really great stuff that they've made for other VR headsets aster about is one of if not the most beloved ps VR game those are two really easy wins to say hey they're available to play on ps four but if you play them on ps five they have extra graphics X.

Are that are n._f._l. Players i would say the best one that i play with. Thus far is definitely sydney right. <hes> <hes> i guess he was all state basketball and could've played basketball and so you know mostly. Everybody says that any majority football player said he was all state of both sports but you know you weren't with him people enough my half court he could dump. He played defense like if if he didn't he's. I not to look at and be like okay. He probably could've played me for like a good. You know eight seven to ten years for sure sure c._j. Who's the best football player that you've been around that that hooped. I seen some some video <hes> home hoping he'd like he got game. I never who pudding but he looked like he you got gained <hes> the way he moved shoot <hes> who with above players like the but like i feel like receivers safeties linebackers those positions most quarterbacks they got good touch. They got good footwork in the paint on like the size of guy. I also like a six one six. Five six usually means that you probably play basketball highschool because you kinda talk kind of athletic so i think a lot of guys in that range. Usually most quarterbacks got a little jumper that i've seen <unk>. Most receivers is kind of athletic linebackers kind of leading safeties to where they can still move post up. Get to the cup. Actually i did. I play i play with sue wants in sioux surprise me really he the athletic <unk> grains he can move. He got good touch around the basket. I was really surprised and that's what i said no way i'm a huge. Sh still fast can move this crazy like like. Could you imagine trying to run away as a quarterback. You're like a four seven four eight in the d. Lineman a attorney and bigger than you struggle like i'm cool on that and that's when i knew like i made the right decision when i see him as he can really move <unk>. You know what's crazy. Is that when you like when you think about what c._j. Just said about the n._f._l. Players. I don't think fans understand the violence of the n._f._l. There's there's one thing on t._v. There's one thing to be at a game but to be on the sideline when you hear it when you when you see it when you hear a hit at the n._f._l. Level it's not until you're on the sideline do really understand the impact. Yes definitely it's definitely a different field because when you when you're out there and on the field you get to hear the the communication <hes> going on during the game. You actually get to hear the the hit that happened. Every single play 'cause sometimes the t._v. Picks it up. Sometimes it does but <hes> you know. I definitely feel like you said it's definitely different experience because you see how much the guys communicate by for us you see how loud you get and how you know how we gotta talk just communicate and so you know it's definitely definitely art to it for sure i appreciate your coming on man wishing the best going all forward and much. I get to a seahawks game but if i don't mind you welcome to come to a blazer game any point during the season. Just let me know not take care of their breathtaking man knowing chunk of again.

Sometimes we hit each other and so <hes> it was never fun but the guy never wanna get hit by for sure. Can you never wanna get a friendly fire by cam 'cause so wait. What would what would sherm say during the game like i like give me an example of that <hes> man we would talk me it. Was you know it was just a way of making the game funds so right. You know sherman. We'll talk about t._v. Show during in the game you know he would make fun of my swag during the game. Y'all have like you know. Maybe i chose the wrong gloves and like the glove cover art show so it would be funny looking back at it. You know how right you know you have this intense moment win ten games and and you you know what my haircut got a haircut before the game or something like that. You know what i'm saying like. You know what i'm saying could be forty one big game. We need to make sure we get <hes> the staff and and get off the field to win the game and you know he made a comment about my haircut or something like that so <hes> gore my facial hair or something like okay so it was just little things like that but it made the gang fine man because um you know we were pretty crazy sport and so you always gotta find ways to make games for you talk about making the game fund in high school you play tied-in yeah do you mr position and can we expect to go line packages where you get a little <hes> to be selling them man to put me a man so i especially after i got that fit and i ran back.

"So you know <hes> the goal were trying to get <hes> you know short deal done. That was still pretty lucrative bobby. What was the role that that michael jordan played for those who don't know bobby's ben with <hes> brand jordan for the last couple of years and obviously i know you guys took a trip to france <hes> and that you had a a meaningful impactful conversation with him him and i can't think of a better person than to seek advice from <hes> then then then michael jordan when it comes to to sports and in brand and all of these things so what what was the impact of that conversation had on you <hes>. I just felt like he you know he provided a you know a really crew ooh perspective. You know what i'm saying here. You got you know a player who dominated you know sport and moved onto now now <hes> owning a franchise and so you dealing with you know having to do contracts and things of that nature <hes> you know every day right now so it was just a like i say part of me. Gathering information would better person to ask you know specific questions to nancy into him and so you know we were just down in <hes> you know down in front <hes> 'cause brand jordan taste erebus and they really don't show brand enjoy but <hes> you know we were down there and you know he's just start chopping up balls appertaining and that was something that we talked about as well and so it was just just you know again trying to get <hes> get as many perspective the fact and could <hes> and you know he was you know streaming streaming streaming opening <hes> and provide you know a lot of nice your feedback for sure <hes> but again it was you know he was definitely one guy that i know that i spoke to you know a lot of other people ask folks and similar situation but different <hes> different perspectives <hes> the help but you know he was definitely going to shut him out looking at the upcoming season. You guys have a chance to do something. Special obviously sleep. There's a lot of good teams a lot of good players in the league men chose you as one of i think four players with a ninety nine overall rating. How does that make you feel. Did you grow a plane bed in a lot of black steve. I grew up plan to kay in the answer's. Yes grow plants u._k. So how how does it for you to have a ninety nine overall rating in will you play with the seahawks on man man. I thought i saw that's all i play with man but now it it was super dope man because like you said you grew up as a kid. <hes> you know playing man and so everybody everybody you know created a player. Everybody always made their player ninety nine and everybody always you know <hes> <hes> you know even when you got in the league or they add instant double layer when when i first got into man you know you went in there and it's stacks to get the ninety nine china so to start off that way was was definitely a blessing and it was really cool because i didn't know they were doing this but they did a mural <hes> down in l._a. And and so my family's not too far from that so you know i got a opportunity to kind of go up and check it out and you sort of have that kinda end. You know you know in california -fornia where i was you know around. It was just <hes> you know. I just felt like it was perfect. You know perfect time in <hes> you extremely grateful for and it's a blessing you know not a lot of people say that so that you. Can you know whenever you walk away the game. You say you was ninety ninety one four. How did you find now bobby ninety nine <hes>. How did i find out i think somebody slipped up and told me <hes> and might have been a wanted wanted a rookie..

"I thought that was really cool. The here and <hes> i do hope for the sake of the n._b._a. Or for u._s._a. Fans is that <hes> they definitely use this as a launching point. Yeah i'm with you i mean i think there's a lot of talented players representing our country but it's is still unique situation where a lot of guys haven't played together besides the whole celtics roster basically being on the team. You got a lot of pieces. That aren't accustomed playing together. Were as you face these european teams. They've been playing together since they were younger. They have a lot more time to kind of prepare gain that cohesiveness <hes> be able to kind of mesh mesh faster than it would. It would be for u._s._a. Team but i think they got. They'll be just fine. They'll get they'll get out of this stage. Unscathed obviously big free throws down stretches the little things in turkey mr free throws and chris hayes and i think that was the biggest difference and you look at donovan mitchell securing a few offense rebounds to keep that position alive there was allow things that didn't go their way throughout the night obviating shoot well they turn the ball over some some things that they could have done better but they made the hustle place and i think that's going to be the difference the athleticism as me being able to make the household place <hes> throughout the rest of this potential turning run shadow to kemba walker form pull up podcast in one of the n._b._a.'s really good guys <hes> he was awesome down the stretch basically carried the u._s. <hes> in overtime and <hes> i you know he had five of his is fourteen points in a steel basically in the game <hes> in terms of overtime so i i'm excited about what this team can do. I put the odds on them. Winning it it ninety eight ninety seven percent ninety seven. How about you see you around there. I'm not going to put a percentage on it. I think there's a high likelihood that they'll win it but i think that <hes> based on looking at the roster looking at <hes> how good job or is having played against him. He's gonna be very hard to stop especially in the european setting to where he's it's been accustomed to being able to draw fouls being able to manipulate a certain situations in his favor. <hes> teases obviously in all world in b._a. Talent i think he's gonna pull some problems because he's he's gonna pose problems for any team especially as he continues to gain more experience in with him being in this circuit represent his country. I think that <hes> they have to be one of the team favorite as well as the united states i would say just for if this is interesting to people i don't know if it is but i've seen <unk> pretty much all these teams play except for some of the really lower ones <hes> france greece lithuania serbia's very good rush argentina <hes> <hes>. I think that's those are the best teams spain spain but like you said they're all really experienced so i don't know when that catches up to the u._s. I in terms of loss if it does but <hes> this was a really good tuneup. I hope i hope they learn from it and i think they will so <hes> in terms of <hes> uh n._f._l. See this is a big week because you're around week one. Now i think i might be more more bullish on the browns then you are. I have them at eleven and five as aggressive and i had them going going and losing <music> but nonetheless going to the a._f._c. championship game wow wow that's how good i think they are. Wow i like it man. I think so the question is where are you at as a lifelong browns fan we. We don't like to count our eggs before they hatch. We know we have a great team. In place. You know how aww gray skill position but there's a lot of unknowns obviously injuries chain a franchise being able to find that chemistry find that balance a baker being able to get you solved weapons. He has has <hes> and how to utilize those weapons takes time and our schedule is in very favourable early on you know we have some tough games..

It was able to kind of get back to her roots not going to one of her. <hes> motherland's outside of africa being able to experience italy where well grandma grandma on in a lot of those ancestors are hailing from naples in different parts italy so it was it was nice to her to be able to experience.

Oh and from start to finish it was fantastic and obviously the desert we had was so sensational able to wash that down with fine. Wine made things that much better so thanks again. I appreciate that too that was that was a good oh for sure and you know what we'll we'll have to share off those bottles.

Don't don't don't miss it. It's that special <hes> all right so we're talking n._b._a. And you talked about dwight howard my take on this is is just confusion and i guess i would pose the question to you is what what's the best case scenario for dwight howard and the lakers because i don't think there's necessarily a whole lot of upside <hes> but i guess in theory his physicality could help anthony davis <hes> especially defensively where he doesn't have to bang as much in that that that would be a positive but just the given the history of dwight howard and the organization. It's not even that long ago. I was really surprised to see this deal get done. I think the best cases him being more than serviceable in being able to get close with double double every night. You know obviously impact in both both sides of the of the court you know offensively defensively controlling ellen defensive glass <unk> contesting altering shots and being able to allow anthony davis supply four and not have to play to five something net. I think will will make him pretty happy. I'm not asking to bank every possession in guard some those bigger bodies and then it also allows lebron to play more three obviously lebron can play a bigger position <hes> when they go small ball he can move to the fore <hes> when davis lasted a five so i think it gives them some versatility and in his limited action with the wizards he looked great. You you know in that in that game he played in he was excellent. Jump hooks the excitement of being able to face up <unk> showed some improved touch around that ten of ten to fifteen flip area where he could find a backboard used angles kind of like tim duncan so i think it'll be interesting to see how everything comes together. Obviously it's a long season. A lot happens throughout the season but i think the lakers are happy. They were able to find a service <unk> serviceable big who can impact both ends of the floor..

"They probably probably you're still gonna win. Gold but doesn't feel locked by any means not like lock lock when you've got katie and lebron guys like that playing. I surprised to see that they are a bigger favorite. They were in two thousand fourteen. I suppose there are better teams from around the world twenty fourteen spain was probably still on the tail end of their prime but the twenty fourteen team wasn't wasn't any great shakes that ended up being like kyrie and kenneth farid that were the huge names from that one kind of three got that gigantic contract after dominating everybody else in the world that was six foot six and under and then glenn he's going to be great so yeah. You never really know who's going to pop in the summer. I think <hes> tatum is a good choice mitchell. Obviously he's a good choice getting a lot of buzz. He looks a little bit more chiseled to me like even just in the face. His face looks like he's awesome. Wait muscle up no surprise he'd be playing well moving onto a non basketball. You never know who's going to pop in the summer well. This guy's been pop happen. This question is from. I have only one and it requires an answer whereas mattio. Why hasn't he been on any shows. Thus far caps lock free mattio from big big joe. We'll go on <hes> wow <hes> well. I guess we'll start with a march <hes> when the a._t.

We were told that turner wasn't career contracts and very soon after that we all met the six of us and discussed like you know. What has everyone feeling. What does everyone do you and <hes>. I think everyone basically decided well. We wanna keep going forward with the show <hes> and i a thought about it and let you guys know that i would be <hes> moving on and not coming back just tired of just tired of the show show i fucking had it and so that's why i haven't been on shows the summer but i wanted to come on today really to say goodbye <hes> to everyone out there but not everyone in here to do one last one last pot high on unloved and specifically on the timing.

The last ten years of my life have been this and this has been the most consistent thing in my life for the last ten years right. I mean i've moved cities. He's been away from my family for that long. <hes> you know moved away from friends but good things have happened. Bad things happen but really this has been the consistent thing in my life and i've seen you guys over the last ten years more than i've seen and literally anyone by such a wide margin spending you know eight nine hours together every single day for the past ten years and that's not concluding outside of work hours where we've seen each other a ton and i'm trying to you know it was difficult and it still is difficult to imagine what life will be like without.

"It's not easy which teams are there who plays in the n._b._a. Man that's been a long vacation well. It's like do you have any hope the thunder still with chris ball and they stay ari. What a mix those wells. The wolves are the least talked about team. I feel like honestly the summer they really are outside of. That de ngelo russell was maybe going there a little blip feel like they were just like the perfectly in in you know nowhere in no man's land there in the western governors like they're not the worst but they're not no one's really gonna play. Nobody's gonna take him seriously until they make the playoffs. Just after the way the jimmy butler saga played out with basically him calling out the other superstars on that team for not playing hard enough. Everybody's like jimmy butler got you to the playoffs we will well believe it from wiggins and towns when it actually happens. Maybe if we against played for the canadian national team there would be some buzz around the warriors. We'll get in for that. Are you going with breath decide well. Actually my prediction was going to be that. One of these top. Seven teams drops his it always happens. There's always an injury to someone. Something always happens where one of these teams that were pencilling in. Could it be the lakers last year. The lakers seems crazy but if lebron is hit that part of his career where those injuries are real thing now he misses half the season always misses good twenty five games and it'll be fun in your inevitable inevitable preview shows to ask. Is this year the spurs. Don't make the playoffs elliott exciting to do it in january as well when they're struggling a little bit ah out of the playoffs yeah. They're done december rodeo trip.

Those guys are going to be on the beach in the gym wherein they're short little shorts and they're tiny outfits outfits flexing their muscles because i feel like they both like looking good showing off how good they look. I don't know necessarily the heat are going to be a great team but <hes> <hes> butler and leonard to me is a perfect mix of like preening guys who are going to be showing off down at south beach okay so yeah. I'm looking forward to their fifth picks the interesting angles. This wasn't sorry man. I'm going for an unthought combo georgia's poll. I leonard together exactly you. You can't say p._g.

"Pelicans because it's like you know they're team is going to be led so to speak but the number one pick in zone winston which i think he's going to be awesome. I is he leading team to the playoffs in his first year. That's not easy to do 'specially in this loaded west so there are a huge question mark because they have a lot of talent. I like what they've done this summer there. There are pieces there that makes sense with j._j. Read it coming in shooting. Obviously you still got drew and all that and then the mavs he said it's like you're right tasks like a healthy porzingas and a healthy healthy luca danni with a well coached team. That's a if in theory is a really good squad but it's like i don't know posing as first off kenny. Stay healthy and then do all the pieces can they can. They all fit together pretty quickly. I'm one kinks. I'm going to buy into the kings first and then you said at the spurs to you can almost always put him amen which makes this difficult but at the kings were a good team last year their two best players maybe even three in fox begley and bogdanovich they should just get better and then they went in. They did add some sort of veteran guys filling the roster there to help pick up a couple of wins here and there in tough games and close game so they were right there. Last year fell off near the end of the season that makes sense but i think they almost like. It's like play or bust a weird way to me with that team. It really really close to that like they have to have a better record. Let's say a better record than they did. Last year which the nearly puts you into the playoffs. They were nine games out of the playoffs last year. That would be a lot more wins the season. I'm always a little hesitant to embrace the surprise team. I think that we saw with the sons all those years ago where they had forty eight wins and then they were terrible afterwards you can catch the league by surprise surprised no doubt what happened with the kings last year. Nobody was expecting fox to make the jump that he made last year or that. The team would kind of jell around playing super fast. People are going to be expected in the play fast. Fox is not an unknown player anymore. People are going to be gained planning to take him out. Hopefully bagley makes a jump like you're saying. Bogdonovich should be better all going to be playing. I mean i know that fox and bagley ackley didn't stick with the world team this year but at least they were playing with those guys through the summer. Bogdonovich is obviously still go on for serbia the the the idea that definitely makes sense but that's a lot more wins. They get nine more wins and i mean it's a forty eight last year. Yeah i mean. I wonder if that diluted a little bit because there's so many good teams in the west. They're sort of beating up on each other a little bit. Maybe that drops a bit but you're right like what forty-six minimum is likely what it is going to take. It feels like the spurs script ripta's already written. There's a bunch of guys on that team that no one knows about like every year with the spurs devante murray coming back from a year where he was gone with an injury but he's an all defensive player and then derek white beside him who made a name his name in the postseason but as a guy that i can never remember his first name i see i always a d. white but i i always i. I think it's a potentially a durell potentially darren. I never derek whyte but either way. He's really really good in that team. Like you said dhamar lamarcus. I just like we sorta throughout with dodging porzingis. Those guys are all n._b._a. Guys as well that eight spot. I'm going kings. I'll give me the kings. Certainly you're going spurs tough. I'll take the mass. I'm interested in them. Got reaction to the mattio. It's it's not easy..

"Maybe makes the team. Maybe it doesn't but he has to be. You know like nearly a point per game score actually give more effort on defense and not kelly on that end. I think for them to win a title yeah. I'd say in lebrun but they need help as well you. You need danny green and you need k._c._p._t. And these guys to contribute was one of those great summer guys because right now he looks amazing. He looks his jeans. You're talking about physically. The look is cool. I think i like the blonde look say it looks good. He couldn't pull it off the confidence offense and he's got the. I don't give a shit about what anyone thinks. Let it fly it fly here but that ship fly who's mullets those shots why we can let those oh shit slow and he played a little five to not not that it's good when he plays five but he can probably eat up some minutes but i think we're we're kinda. Shortchanging the marks because i know he came back and i have one good game in the finals but if you could get back to <hes> you know like seventy five percent of what he was he was you know had good numbers in the regular season last year but it just it just keeps things real simple now trades writing that it's lebron in eighty shoulders really just a score a pooped on they they have to do a lot and yet can be that that third guy and again. I gotta believe in coups. He's got that swagger so why not he played well at times off the ball with lebron when other guys struggle the only guy lebron yeah. That's not any didn't even he's. He's a weird like yeah yeah. He's a bucket of score but he's not like all efficient so far right his career so he needs to be better at that but back to cousins i saw jeff stotts guy that runs like in street clothes that that breaks down like analyzes all the injuries and stuff like that he couldn't find a single instance of a player rupturing both their achilles and their a._c._l. Across all sports not just n._b._a. Like you're sort of stilted in there. Maybe we've seen. Will we ever see cousins again. I would hope so but that's a lot come back from on top of the quadriceps injury. We'll see him on twitter shooting but i don't know if it'll be an n._b._a. Game he'll be he'll be rehabbing with the team. I think somebody will give him a shot but it's i think it's a fair question unfortunately and he'd lost a lot of money because of these interests all right next question here if we assume boom the top seven in the west look something like clips rockets lakers blazers nuggets jazz in warriors not necessarily in that order.

This was sort of the news the last week or so demarcus cousins goes down again this time a tornado which like like now he's. He's torn his achilles. He's tore his a._c._l. He had the quadriceps injury in the playoffs. Poor guy can't catch a break here. But what effect does this sort of have on the lakers you think heading into the season and who do they. Maybe get to sort of back him up to a backup jail mcgeer. Can he do it by himself. What do you think i think it stinks for demarcus. Obviously the two worst leg injuries a player can half. Are we gonna ever see him again really on basketball floor who the heck knows i think just to say from mr woodall here that javale mcgee will have the same production is a little disrespectful to demarcus cousins. I know he'd like jails. Sales posted up this dumping down. The hook shots mr woodall. Have you ever seen the vilna get mcgee do that. I think simplifies the way they play..

Twenty. that was the memorable world cup final which cop talia beach northern cyprus on penalties to win last year's final of the world cup that the conifer world cup competition represents the hungarian minority in ukraine knief oh the confederation of independent football associations include breakaway states some regions such as yorkshire england and minority groups from some nations sasha is secretary-general fifty-five members on all six continents and the simple majority of them are minorities or regions and then there is a huge set of members that are unrecognized countries so all the post soviet independent countries for example like a pasi setia transnistria nagorno-karabakh but also northern cyprus ahmadi not western sahara they all their own khalifa in football if you look at places like abkhazia transnistria how important is it for the people who live that t._v. able to fly their flag international to be recognized on the on our world stage it's incredibly important and it probably more for them than it is for most nations to play in world cup and it's not only the case about recognition that is important for them to waive their own flag and hear their own national anthem before to match but most of all i mean they are seriously isolated most of them they don't have access to any international sports they are forbidden to play any football matches on home soil against any international opposition even if it's a club that wants to travel there it's just forbidden and the visiting club would be banned for many years so for them does breaking embargo and being visible in a way as people naturally it is very important of big deal for them so what some of these football teams like how would they fare against relatively good international side would qualify for the world cup that is very hard to tell but i would say that the top ten maybe fifteen of our teams are mostly full professional players that play and top leaks of fiba if you look at pasi third example about seventy percent of this court is playing in the russian premier league or in leaks of some of the standard estonian leak and serbian leak so the standard is quite decent i would probably compare them probably to northern ireland on a bad day than island on a bad day that's not exactly bringing endorsement of the quality of that bull i mean they wouldn't probably qualify for for people world cup but fevered has two hundred twelve members and they would probably be very much in midfield of that and the same is true for the top ten fifteen teams than most of our top teams are obviously than non-recognised countries because they do have a proper structure behind on the ground and they do have the resources to also pay players to that will sash the secretary general of coney

US, Boeing And President Trump discussed on FT News
"Order of prohibition to ground all flights of the seven thirty seven. Max eighth. Andy, seven thirty seven max nine and planes associated with that line. I've spoken to Elaine Chao secretary of transportation to Sylvia, we just heard Donald Trump making his announcement about the grounding of Boeing's seven three seven max in US airspace on Wednesday. Can you take us through the timeline of events Pap starting with when the max eight I went into service. Yes, sir. The Mike Sade is a variant of the seven three seven aircraft that Boeing launch of the nineteen sixties. It was one what has been one of those best selling aircraft. The Maxine I launched in twenty seventeen. What happened last year in October that line and Indonesia airline crashed shortly after takeoff and killed all hundred and eighty nine people on board. Now, what's happened? This week is our on Sunday. An Ezio piano lines crashed also killing everybody on board. That event has now triggered a worldwide ban of the aircraft. Starting with the Chinese and ending with the Americans yesterday. So air crashes, unfortunately, do just happen. But from what we know so far what are the similarities between these two crushes that are getting thirties. Concerned just a stress we don't know anything definitive. The black boxes are still being examined by the accident. Investigators with what we do know is that both accidents took place in the same phase of flight shortly after takeoff and pilots on the GOP and airlines reported flight control problems, which was the same case with liner back in October. So there's been a lot of debates around the aircraft's automated stall prevention features, she's caught the MCAS after the lion. At crushed some pilots in the US complain they'd been unaware of this feature. What exactly their concerns and how long have they been kicking around for these concerns? I surfaced off of the line aircrash October where a lot of pilots in the US. So that they wanna wear of the feature at hadn't been in any of their training manuals or hadn't been explicitly specified. In the training manuals. Some of them were saying earlier this week that now that they know exists, and they know how to deal with it. And specifically how to counteract it if it does take effect? Some of the were saying to me they thought this aircraft was still safe to fly. Right. So what would you say what would people in the industry say about the way the management of Boeing has handled this crisis? I think there are mixed opinions out there. I think it's a waste difficult to react in these sorts of circumstances. But their reputations definitely on the line and some suggest that burn should've acted immediately. After the crash on Sunday. They should have come out and said, we're banning this aircraft. They have not been to crushes in less than six months. We don't really know what the causes yet of the second one will ban the aircraft and others of sort of made the point that Boeing should've waited for the US regulated to come out and burn them. Which is what happened yesterday is a bit of a mixed view out there, but equally it doesn't look good for bearing in terms of reputation in the moment. No. And its share prices of taken a hit the rating agency Fitch worn. That the crisis could become a systemic issue with lengthy groundings delivery delays in order cancellations. What is the potential scale of the damage to Boeing nobody's really putting a number on it at the moment. I mean, the shares as you say they've tanked or they dropped steeply. They lost about twenty six billion dollars worth in terms of market cap. Nobody has yet cancelled an order for the seven three seven eight, but the entire family, and there are four variance is a very big of for Boeing. It's wrapped up around five thousand order so far worth around six hundred billion dollars. So it's a big earner, you know, big potential hit it speaking of hits. Josh, what are the losses that international airlines that have offered them at seven three seven, you know, what's the impact on them? So those that have them in service already will be facing costs on several fronts. We've had one definitive figure quite clear figure from to the traveler Prater, which has an airliner has five max aids, which is grounded may said is going to cost three. Million euros a week likely. So we know that that six hundred thousand euros per aircraft. That's quite a lot of money. But what that consists of is various things. So a lot of airlines don't own their aircraft. They lease them. And you have to pay rent we have to pay a lease fee. Even if you're not using it. So your paying the FIBA you're not getting any cash in you, go to pay your staff because they call it necessarily transfer from one type of aircraft another you have to pay parking fees is expensive enough to park a car in London Commissioner tried to park and aircraft at Heathrow or ever. And then of course, the passengers you have to reroute them, you might have to put them onto other services. You might be liable for compensation under certain European schemes. So all of these costs mount up and one consultancy has estimated that they think it will cost one hundred fifty thousand dollars a day per craft grounded. Now, there are lots of variables in there. And we have yet see, but clearly the longer these planes are grounded the more. It's gonna cost not that people's holiday plans in a survey of the most important thing in these sorts of circumstance. Mises, but what is the impact on the travel industry and how much disruption as this like to cause unwed? Do we know? There's ever a good time for a crash, but the fact that it happened now in the winter scheduled was the tail end of the winter schedule means that there are fewer planes flying. So there was a bit more spec passively. So if an airline can't use the for Norwegian, for example, can't use it smacks eight so it substituting on some of its roots at seventy seven Dreamliner so that will take some of the strain. But it depends how long this goes on for because if this carries on into the summer schedule, which actually starts at the end of the month when planes when flights ramp-up, then he could find it very pressing. There are other places they can get planes from they can wet lease them as it's called from third parties, which supply them with the planes and with the crew, hence, the wet leasing dry leasing is without the crew those are expensive, and of course, competition for those if all of these planes are grounded means that the prices of those will undoubtedly go up so it could be hugely expensive for them on several fronts and said just doing know who the main customers hair, and where will the buck stop is it the airlines that will end up taking. These will bowing to help them in some way burning. I think ultimately is going to have to help them. But the question is how long does that help take come? Is there a legal case of their contractual wranglings have to happen? I so we know that some of the biggest airlines with ovarian with the biggest orders, I think American United southwest. Norwegian have a tenth of their fleet at the moment. But they also have that eighteen, but they also have ninety two on order now Ryanair's interesting 'cause they have one hundred thirty five on order due to start arriving fairly soon. Ryan has big expansion plans over the next few years is it going to be able to keep up with those in the short term if it has all of these planes. There are some airlines which have very strong balance sheets, and we'll be absolutely fine. They can take the hit because they know they'll get it back. It might look pretty in the short term. There are other airlines not naming any that will find it much harder to sustain this kind of loss on a consistent basis. Finally, sylvia. We know that Donald Trump's budget this week proposed a cut to the Federal Aviation Administration. Inspired. Of the fact that is air traffic control system remains years behind many of his counterparts. What's more the FAA lacks chief after Mr. Trump failed to get approval for his own nominee? What kind of pressure is the FAA under the FAA's definitely under the microscope at the moment. Lot of people saying it was too slow to act notably. The Chinese regulator was the first one on Monday to ban the Akra from his own space quickly follow other countries around the world. And then e so the European regulator on Tuesday, some people saying the agency's understaffed underfunded others are saying that the FAA was right to wait to get some sort of evidence on the cause of the second crash. There has been some mentioned of new satellite imagery, those come out, which might have been one of the reasons why the FAA together with President Trump on Wednesday decided to ground the aircraft in the states. Those people as supporters of the FAA's that are saying it was right that the agency didn't bow to political pressure. That had been building up in washing since the Europeans bound the. Craft not to act into to wait for the facts. Having said that we still don't really know why the aircraft crashed. But we hand say is that the prestige of the eight hundred fifty billion dollar aviation industry in the US has definitely taken a hit this week.
