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

"floyd mayweather" Discussed on Impaulsive with Logan Paul
"Fucking killer bro. Not like now disney startling. We were trained for the other shit. I was say you have media presence. You know how to sit and talk to a camera and you know. Look this look at this camera. Tell the story to this person with this inflection. In order to sell it's cheating it's our gift right. Yeah and my one rebuttal. Because i agree. The fighters of the talent the fighters bring the audience. The powers with the fighter and some are catching asking their lives. One hundred percent hundred percent. Some are catching on. My one rebuttal would be this. And this is me playing devil's avocados. Selling papers heart bro. And i bet. Most fighters think they're much more valuable than they actually are when it comes to actually driving pay per view sales. A lot of them probably aren't where they think they really are a hundred percent. And i i see that all the time i mean we know firsthand. People think they can go on to the ring. These tiktokers and stuff think they're going into the ring this coming weekend or whatever and they think they're going to sell x amount of pay per views a nun and you're not gonna. You're not gonna do that and i think. A lot of fighters do overprice themselves. I just think the ones there are certain ones who can sell the papers thousand getting the pay per view cut and the numbers that they deserve our mean you sitting here. I'm three fights. Three pro fights in your to prophets in how to you. And i make more than every single fighter in the afc. I think francis in ghani tweeted this right or someone did. It might have been him. It's fucking stupid dude. It's fucking dump it but the answer is because people are invested whether they like it or not they want to see they wanna see me try to do the impossible right arctic or come close or wherever the fuck they want to see you get your ass kicked whatever it is..
"floyd mayweather" Discussed on Impaulsive with Logan Paul
"Because we're not you know boxers or they respect as boxers so we had a conversation about this house. Logan like i like. I was sort of like talking you off the ledge. I was like bro. Like who gives a fuck like just going there be a robot perform perform like you do inspiring just another sparring session. Yeah but it's it's much harder. Because i'm also super visual. I visualize everything. I manifest everything. And unlike The case i fight i also visualized losing i also visualized like the worst possible outcome as well as the best one and that fear of not wanting that to happen being fully aware that it could like acknowledging it going. I see how that could happen. Helps me and i think that's where we we differed a little bit right because you you talked about only seeing the victory only tasting that that win and i was just really honest with myself throughout this whole process and it works for me as an athlete. He i'm just more like i can only think about the naga. I think i do though have like one moment where i can acknowledge why acknowledge that everything is going to happen. I think that's in the beginning of camp. And i think it motivates me but then i leave that thought there and then from there on visualize the win through and through your mind was like a it was a it was a really powerful like ultimate surrender To like what is attachment to outcome. I was disconnected while also being so invested at the same time And it put me in a really powerful spare space. Because while i didn't give fuck. I cared so much and it was. It was strong. And i went in the fight like having fun like you saw in the locker room beforehand. I'm doing taichi like we got like we're making blues plan. Make it can take like fucking around. Bought the fight like one of the goats. Yeah i think that was so different about the last case. I fight to serious because first of all you did not envision the loss that you did not allow yourself to play out a potential reality. That is the vikings could lose and then the locker room was pretty serious. Everything about it was it was just intense. And you grit your teeth. And you're geared up for you know whatever but and it and it was. It was fake it because i was told to be that that warrior instead of being that warrior and you know where i found the intensity. I'm sure you saw a switch in the locker room because we were having a good time. We went to do our breathing exercises in. Jake prepared like a speech for me dude. And we're doing our breathing exercises and our eyes are closed and my is. I'm fucking balling by the time. Jake is done with his speech. Like i'm crying. Breifly god like fucking tickled. And i was just like. Whoa what i woke up on our is. And i'm crying and i got in this just like kale mentality in like a healthy natural organic way to me. And i started pounding my chest and was like excited to go to war excite like like die with honor brow type shit like i watched so many war.

"You know saturday. After walk through. So i got five for conduct detrimental talking about the game bill fast. We actually worked there as long ocho. He definitely one fifty. Did you double no like three scores. And the second half so carson probably thirty five times in the second half so it was. It was a ever ever and he he showcase it again. Last night he played soccer. I don't think he he's got an incredibly powerful leg. I don't think he played soccer grownup. Just a great athlete but he's entrepreneurial is with what he was doing with twitter him and biz paul net business. It was always ocho embiid's we're kind of the two guys that were on the twitter game that was like these are crushing. It you know. And it's it's cool to see him. Continue to go you know for sure. I was really pumped for him last. Chosen a fucking boxing match rate. Now on showtime like logan. Paul settle a couple times. And i think he understood and that's why i didn't like that. They were just burying him because he was like admitting like oh. This is a simulation. I should not be here like i am like. I think he was now branded. The crowd was cheering for floyd for the first time ever whenever he was starting to like pepper logan. Or whatever you what's so clear. He'll baby-faced situation there. But i don't know i just.

"floyd mayweather" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"You've covered floyd for a longtime vernon you've heard the retirement stuff from floyd over and over again. I tend to believe it more this time. And it has been what four years since he's been in an actual fight but he does have a massive ego and if people are out there saying pack. Your beating aerospace catapults. Paki out past floyd in the mythical eternal pound for pound rankings. It's going to get in. Floyd said he's gonna put stuff on instagram about it. Maybe it's a picture of patio. Getting beat up in their fight or patio. Getting knocked out by one manuel marquez. I don't expect it to happen. Because i think spence isn't real deal at one forty seven as good as pack. Yell looked against. Keith thurman thurman is a different fighter than spence and that was two years ago for pack yell but if it happened could you. You think it's possible we could see mayweather vs pack out to be maybe not as big as the first fight but patios coming off that win. That's like three million pay per view buys al. That's still a big big number that we're talking about the you know that's that's about the third thing you brought up in this call that i have not even thought about either means that you're brilliant. At with now choose. Areas are eminem. Bezel could be a combination of both the place that is a fascinating point and and it would be from a financial standpoint Something that would be amazing. Because you're back out who everyone knows would be on the way out at that point or would be certainly would either be retiring or maybe i guess may be fight but yeah clearly. I think that's been Thinking about what you're discussing. I wouldn't rule that out because Because it would be. It would be something that would be real you know. And and it because he did be mayweather fighting than active champion. Who just did the impossible by being errol spence and they. You know you're saying it. Would this be the first one it might not be. But i'll tell you what i think. That's one of those ones. Were you know how baseball team say when we threw our hat. We're so good than we throw our hat on the diamond were five hundred up while guys throw their glove in the ring there. Good for one point. Five million pay per views right from the get go when you start and then you start building. That and that would be an astonishing event. I you again. Some people will say. Oh let's not do that. But in that instance i. I don't know what harm that does either. Because here's pack out the two right. At the end of his. You know his career and if they wanted to do that you know so sellable to paco. You know knocking off arguably the top guy. At one may put his undefeated record online coming back into that. Mix to fight his longtime rival. Yeah i mean look. The first white was five years too late but still bought it in droves backyard but knocked out in between by marquez in the years prior to that taking place. It's still did major business. I'd just it will all come down to florida. We know pack. That would do it right like he wants that. Mayweather fight freddie roach wants that mayweather fight..
"floyd mayweather" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"And so when you if you step into the ring with them even a few banana the game and even giving up thirty pounds and even if you're whatever we live in a society now especially that is perfectly willing to overreact in every conceivable way To anything that see And and i don't know but that in a certain odd kind of way. There is some pressure on a mayweather to not let the unthinkable happen. Do not let logan paul somehow by accident or by by design. Do something to him that would end up in disaster that night. Were you on the opinion out when when you look back. We say by design. Did you think during the conor. Mcgregor fight that floyd carried him for those early rounds. Let himself get hit. Yes at the time. I wasn't sure afterwards. I believe yes to be honest. I think he i think he. He realized that they had happened. Showed for people and a calculated that if mayweather mcgregor had some success he could live with it and then still get him and that is what happened so i do honestly think he probably did. Yeah i agree. And i think we could see at the time. I wasn't sure. I couldn't tell but watching the repairs and in thinking about it you know i think probably probably a case. I could see something similar to matter with logan paul. No matter what shannon briggs says like logan is not some big puncher is going to hurt floyd mayweather and floyd if he wanted to put him down with body shots probably do that pretty easily at some point. Quite the bodywork could something. That could be significant. Are you of the opinion you know. Because you're presumably going to call the jake. Paul fight coming up against ira woodley. That's also going to be on showtime platform. You hear all this stuff is good for. Boxing is bad for boxing. Is it inbetween. What's your take on jake. Paul and these youtubers getting real boxing slots albeit ones in kind of the exhibition. For a conversation for another day is like mixed martial arts really handle like so many stars getting starched by jake paul. Like if that's kind of continues. Like i mean that's i don't know if that affects the image of mixed martial arts but as far as boxing goes the jake. Paul stopped the logan paul. Stop it continues. Do you see it being any kind of positive or negative for boxers just unique in what it is..

"Oh i think so too. But if that's the end of his career like hall of fame versus hall of famer kind of dream matchup with two of the best smaller. Wait guys in boxing history. I think that could be a lot of fun. I mean donate thirty eight. I mean in a weird way feels like there's still two years of big fights that he could potentially get into if he's still fighting at this level i agree. I haven't thought about the other. The other option you mentioned but yeah there are there boy. The world's zoysia right now But one one fifteen is a pretty sexy way class at the moment with your voice is down there. Wave class guys moving up at some point that donayre would probably be be physically bigger than all of them. That's where anybody coming up in away class. D him right now roy. Beware of what you wish for besides in the ring. Yeah he's big. He's really big for one hundred and eighteen pounder at. I think that really played itself out against do violate you know we saw to get. I remember when you know we were doing his fights when he when he broke through and knocked out of victor ginny and at that moment my feeling was and i probably even said it at some point that this his physical gifts at this weight class make him very close to being unbeatable. Not nolan's unbeatable. Of course he wasn't the although he did actually his loss rigged. I think was it awake class above that. But but you know it that way. It's really tough for somebody. You know coming up wait. Hey one fifteen one eighteen one twenty two they are all fantastic weight divisions and and i love the fact that all the different platforms do boxing For the most part are doing what american. Tv doesn't always done added feature the small guys now the proven to be really entertaining in In most of the fights that they've created up. Let's talk about the one. You're working this weekend in florida. Floyd mayweather junior back in action. Fighting logan paul in an exhibition match in miami. My take on these types of things out is. They're almost like the new autograph. Signings right past guys would show up for autograph signings at picture takings and make some money off that now. They're just using their name to get into fights with popular figures in this case. Because it's twenty twenty one youtube stars guys with a huge following that can convince their fans to plunk down forty nine ninety nine whatever the amount is to watch their guy go up against an all time great boxer. We used to see some of this back in the day. I'll go to japan to fight the rest. I mean stuff like this happened. Butterbean was involved in exhibitions for right time. So it's not shocking precedent. Yeah it's got a president to it. So i guess. Give me your reaction when this was first this first that your radar floyd mayweather coming back. I'd early forties to face logan paul. Who's going to have you know what three four inches and thirty plus pounds on him. Well love your analogy to being the current day autograph signings. It's really what it is. And of course we live in a society where you can create something out of whole cloth of these people get famous for being famous. You know when. I was a little kid. I used to watch a date Completely jet power show. When i was real young and there were these people on there that that were broadway actresses in bennett cerf. Who was the publisher in wrote. Never antony i didn't.

Hope he stands in the ring and whoever interviews him he just says you know give me hey devon haney next avenue next week we got momentum for that fight you call the great one this past weekend. No neither donayre just turning back the clock once again thirty eight years. Old becoming the oldest Bantam weight champion with a fourth round. Knockout win over nor dido bali Were you surprised by that. Outcoming donate one. eighteen is great like he just. He continued. That's his weight where he's at his best yes. He lost two in a way but every in anyway and most people lose to in a way much worse than donor did so i was. You know. I don't think i was shocked because i know how big and strong donor is new when he makes that weight in a healthy way. He's tough but to go out and just dismantle ugali in that type of manner. I was impressed. Yeah you know. There are a couple of mysteries in life that i have that remain unsolved for me and one of them is wine. Anita gagnaire ever went up in weight the way he did a because here we see now fighters never go back down and wait when they're in their late thirties. It just doesn't happen right. And yet he was able to do it so if you're able to do it now. Why did you go up several weight classes when you were younger on. He could have been the champion one hundred eighteen forever right just about i mean because he has that height and reach and power advantage over other hundred and eighteen pounders. Here's what fans need to know about that fight. Nordenham volley is a really good..

"floyd mayweather" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"I i set it already. But i'm pointing out things that need to be pointed out if you're going to get the proper perspective of despite and now i'm not paid by trela or levitt from oaten estate showtime to make it. Look i've i think you know me better than that i earned. I think i've earned through my reputation over the years not to be challenged by that kind of thinking. I think i have. I think that's it. That's that's it can. That's i don't think. I don't think anyone's going to be accused of being in cahoots with stephen espinoza showed time little idiots. I said i said it. I said yeah. I said it. Okay all of these executive stole deserve to pay as they get but they make it despite themselves because there's a product out there is delivery system out there with a great network and then and they still get it they still they still able to get numbers they able to and keep their job but if they knew how to do their job a little better could be better. It could be better. It could be better and they could be putting better fights on in a more consistent manner instead of these one sided fights. I'll talk about that. Big fights when they put a big fight on. Of course they're going to get these numbers but would they put that crap on on a regular basis not competitive as against base. Guess what people are even stupid. Stephen people stupid they don't watch not when it comes to the regular fights like that they don't watch they will watch because they could watch something. That's more competitive. You have see has passed up. You guys that way and i'm not again you ever major gabled our. I know you get the numbers when you put a major. I get that without comparing apples and oranges apples pineapples up talking about apples and apples. Baby come on what you're talking about that you put on just regular fights week-to-week. You have seized past guys up because guess what guess what every week you put on a ufc fight pretty much every week. They're competitive because the best guys top guys competitive guys. Competent guys are getting in there. You're not just putting guys in to to build somebody's record so you can trick your audience. This guy's one hundred and two win. Oh all guy in the ufc. Sixteen o sixteen first round knockouts. Maybe the developmental programs. But you won't see him in the ufc not he won't have sixteen. Ufc fights sixty first round narcos just point now because he'd been tested. Because that's that because you've been putting real fight. He's not one hundred and fifty like some of these guys. You know basically become one hundred fifty dollars. I mean you know i mean really. I know. he's a tough guy. But what's your gardener. Doing next week. Really busy really. i know. He's a tough gardner. Don't get me wrong and had a good garden and a man of men works hard. That's all. I'm not knocking them. Disparaging them but i'm just saying if he's free dumb the stevie baby you know maybe maybe get on one of those cards. Mainly ufc's recent paper of the most recent fans. I'll tell you. I do it because it's the truth and you defense. You need somebody task these questions. You need somebody to bring this forward on the recent pay per view card on the ufc which one it was but the biggest underdog of the night was plus one seventy five and the person one there it is. You won't see you won't see showtime after dark or show box whatever. It's called boxing. After dark where every single fight is essentially even or or less than a two-to-one favorite on aside. It just won't happen. It's so true you'll see guys like risking their lives to get in there with the prospect. So true can so true ed again. We've talked about this with the great dozen pori really and he's great. He's the greatest of human beings. Great as as a as a fighter and you know these guys they get put in a furnace. They get putting a fire. You could lose two three four five six seven eight. Whatever but you're learning you're becoming better you being forged you wanna have a blade for battle these warriors. They do with their hands. But you're warrior you go out there. You're samurai you wanna have a samurai sword. What do you do you put in a fire. You're putting a fire to forged blade. Well how do you afford so human being the same way to go in the fire to become a warrior to go through to know that you could depend on yourself to learn about yourself questions about yourself and you have see they get those questions answered earlier rather than later and they're ready for the fire. They're ready for the furnace when the moment comes a lot of these guys. They're not being done favors by putting putting them in there you know would would would would fights that they could wouldn't with one hand tied behind the other and get outta bed and have ten minutes to get ready then not learning not getting better than that edge questions. They're not developing and a lot of times. You see a guy. You'll see a guy with that great record over sudden fighter veteran bang. You say what happened. I'll tell you what happened. What didn't happen. It's what didn't happen. He didn't get the fights he needed on the way up to become better to become hole in that way to those questions you know. I think a good example. When you talk about that is was it. Rene alvarado that cancio beat twice. Beat the hell out of them in alvarado prior to that fight trained by freddie roles world-beater he they thought cancio like well. Let's get the guy from socal. Gas will beat the hell out of him and cancel. Was like no not this guy and then in a rematch. Beat them up even worse. I mean i. I don't think he's gonna fight since so true so true. I know he hasn't can you so true exhibit. A in a court of law fog exhibit. A right there and there's a lot exhibits does a lot of them and cancio was wrong guy. He was the guy he was. The guy was talking about he was the guy would losses. He was the guy who had fought through the fire. He was the guy that did get questions. Answered is the guy that lost in order to win. He was that guy who was the one guy for them. I'm sorry it was not not rene alvarado. I'm sorry alberto machado. Sorry attorney ronald came back and beat andrew belt. I met a alberto jad to do you. You checked it. You went and checked it. And you've you corrected on time. Thank god i hate to see what they become. An they'd kill thank. God can't thank. God we already type into. Probably all deleting the message like of course. They're doing it as soon as listening. Eddie made a mistake. You guys need for my buddy ken. This one yeah this okay. That's what you need.

"As one of the one of the things that i remember love him telling me that after being one hundred percent you could have gone with really any trainer. I mean you could have picked say. Brian mcintyre works with turns crawford. You could picked derek james who works with aerospace these trainers two great fighters. What was it about canales trainer.

Were on the same lane so we try to help each other out. And i couldn't have been a better decision you know. I i keep hearing andy about that. Camp is serious camp like guys take their work seriously in it does have a lot of personalities. You've got personality ryan garcia's big personality can his own guy but how would you describe the seriousness of that camp is really serious because remember like i said the first time Eddie he told me look you have to give me a hundred and ten percent and be dedicated to this sport and to this day i still hear him in my in my head. You know like. I'll have to be dedicated to be disciplined and now without a follow-up bucknell does as well you know he's a really New trains really hard. You know every single day. I don't even remember the last day. I miss training because if i do. I don't want them to think like all you know what. He's not taking serious or anything like that. You know but i don't have to prove anybody anything besides myself. You know i and that's something that had to do by being disciplined not inside the rim but outside of the ring as well so as we sit here on this zoom call. You look great..

And no it takes brains to one surround yourself with brains and I think that's where I've been smart. I realized it's a many years ago.

Visit WWW dot Lincoln dot com slash S. Be powered by Intel. The blockchain is coming for Wall Street from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. In twenty eighteen ICO's or initial coin offerings were the hot new thing in startup fundraising. Accompany could raise money by selling you, a little bit of value or equity in the form of digital coin. That is kind of like a bitcoin but specific to that company ICO's raised something like twenty two billion dollars in two thousand eighteen we think it's hard to know because the whole practice was totally unregulated. A lot of ICO's turned out to be scams. The SEC started finding celebrities like Floyd, Mayweather and DJ Calot over sketchy paid promotions for ICO's. It got a little weird. And now, it's regulation time. And that means that future ICO's and their digital coins might start to look a lot more like good old fashioned stock except traded on the blockchain, and that has big ramifications for Wall Street, Kristen howls, a partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. She helps companies create an ICO the SEC started to really crack down on this last year large. Really, I think because of massive fraud and theft and with this action people that have had to shift their pro choice to this ICO two point. Oh, also called a security token offering where they split this token idea into two things they issue stock as part one of this. And then part two is they may be they don't have to go. Have this token that does everything but stock and so on the first part of that it's issuing stock in blockchain form, and then it will trade on the blockchain. So that you would buy and sell it as though you were buying bitcoin. But in this case, it would be, you know, Kristen coin. Yes. And no, so yes, in the sense that you will buy and sell on an exchange, but you won't buy and sell these on the current exchanges that trade, for instance, bitcoin and all these other tokens that are still out there because those exchanges are not licensed trade securities. So a lot of really big players, including Goldman Sachs, and NASDAQ and a whole bunch of other people are in the process of building token security exchanges. Interesting. So I'm hearing you say this, and it sounds like there's functionally no difference between trading secure token and trading. A stock accept the possibility that the company itself is not technically public. There's a couple of things there. So on the trading side. I would go out on a limb to predict that all-stock will be traded in some way related to blockchain or or whatever the next best technology is because it's superior to what we're. Doing. Now, you can have a lot better transparency in the market in two stock pricing volume. You could also potentially eliminate some of the metal people where you don't actually need all these these folks in the middle, which of course, brings the resistance to change because broker dealers and others have a vested interest in a system, but we can have a much more seamless actually transparent stock trading mechanism using blockchain Kristen howls partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. Now, the SEC has clearly said it thinks digital tokens from companies are securities, but it hasn't issued any formal rules. Just yet. And now for some related links. What's kind of doubly interesting about this idea of ICO's going legit as these so-called security tokens and potentially changing the way Wall Street works, and maybe even becoming the future of stock trading. Is that kind of everything about bitcoin and the blockchain was conceived to be just the opposite of all of that. And the bitcoin community feels that part of what really killed the ICO. Yes. In addition to the scams and the fraud, which everyone admits where a problem was the threat of regulation, which is what we're now seeing and that in fact, that's kind of a bad thing because I see os were a much more democratic way for potential startups to raise money, they didn't have to go through venture capital, which has all these problems with access and diversity geography, and of course, centralization and now the same old gatekeepers get to keep all the power. There's a good piece on bitcoin is about this. I would encourage you to read it. Find it on our website. Marketplace tech dot org and not for nothing. The blockchain economic forum is happening this week in Davos, Switzerland alongside the World Economic Forum and security token offerings is the topic of a roundtable discussion on the very first night.

Maybe the only major selling point for a home pot has been if you were already a happy apple music subscriber than this was smart speaker for you. So I guess apple has to be happy that apple music.
