"brad wanamaker" Discussed on Celtics Lab Podcast
"Dr system as i always am celtics. Offense is a bit of a mess to say the least but as fate would have it. We have the person for the job of fixing things and telling us what's what so. Let's welcome to the celtics podcast. Mr rogers gallo the head of the gala shotmaking system roger. How are you. i'm very well. Thank you so on. Of course this we actually to tell you the sausage gets made we kinda books this a few weeks ago and For better for worse we really the folks in boston. Really need your expertise roger. So we're gonna have a doctor quinn kind of ask you some some specific questions about what's not necessarily working for the celtics offense and so let's hop right into the celtics lab and a doctor gwen ticket away of all. I want to say. Welcome thanks for coming on. The top thing that i want to ask you about though is a particular client of yours in the past Maybe familiar to some of our listeners. That is up. brad wanamaker. Could you tell us about your interactions with brad. And maybe any by wanamaker storage may have particularly with regards to shooting with regards to brag. It was a it was laying the groundwork for the basis of a little more stabili shooting system than what most of the most of the jomon the we may be talking about today. Actually have working to their advantage That sounds like quite a statement but Brad was being given a more center based kind of shooting system that has to a couple of inherent advantages on not only mathematically the issue balance that we all acknowledge as as it relates to a shooters effectiveness. Some other issues that that accompany movements So that that's what. Brad benefited from that seemed to have helped over the years. Excellent so let me kind of just set the table for what's going on. This can be a little bit of a discourse. Try to keep it as short as i can. Okay now the celtics on rina dhaka in seven games very small sample size so a lot of what we are seeing may. Just be a lot of louise's things all working together but shooting does seem to be a pretty big par-particularly from beyond the arc but also near the basket which is pretty strange against the in a second They nearly made history with seven point. Seven success rate against the washington wizards. October thirtieth lost that game. Going back to jumpers win affecting the cup was working Just seems to be kind of a default thing in today's nba. To kind of just like when you're having struggles just go back on your jumper so my first question for you about that is what is the right balance when we are watching a team like the celtics take twenty six shots and only thinking of him. I mean when you when should you kind of pull it back a little bit now. That to for twenty six number was that field goals or those three pointers. That's what i thought those were three pointers. And that's my recollection and the reality is this is a little unconventional but that's very radically different than most in this regard and a lot of other ways with regards to mechanics that three point shot is the one that should be least affected in a negative way. Unless you're taking a contested three point shot and there aren't too many coaches knew. Were not new to the game would allow too many players to take contested. Three point shots. Would we re on that doctor. I think so. Yeah a lot of them were open to but they just weren't falling very very strange. They were open. What my contention is that. There's only one defender out there. There's not another help defender that that should be affecting your level of marksmanship..
"brad wanamaker" Discussed on Winning Plays
"One last thing or one parting thought after last night in the positive front, Romeo. I almost saw him play it. Like who should have played over time? Romeo and overshoot are always on who played last night. I mean, I know, I know that my own situation where you're like, you don't want to lose Schroeder, like if he's not getting those minutes with Richardson and all out and it's like I understand we can go with veteran there, but who's the best player off the bench? It was like Romeo by a landslide. Last night, for last recent games. I keep saying this like the fact that we're just even talking about Romeo should have been out there and over time is just kind of wild. Yeah, no offense and you know, I was talking to one of our producers about this. I said, I think we forget. He's only 22. And unlike jaylen Brown, growth isn't linear, and there are complicating factors, but yeah, I sort of checked off the I sold my Romeo stock and I was very bullish. I actually I meant to tweet it last night because I had a story from like December of last year of why Romeo life would be the biggest surprise for the Celtics for the 2021 season. And I was going to say due to an editor's error, the season was miss reference and should have been the 2021 22 season. But no, like he's been really, really good. He was way better than my guy nee Smith and way better than Peyton Pritchard and you're right. You know, it probably should have gotten more consideration in that spot based on the way he played. Look, if he just continues to make open shock. Just a three. And he's trying to do. You can't miss. And who knew all it took was going from shedding the number 45, getting rid of that? Was that rape of Francis number? Either way. Shedding the albatross that was 45 and going to rondo has inspired Brad wanamaker has inspired I forgot what podcast I was on. It has inspired him to turn over a new leaf and go to Romeo for hanging in there because he's heard a lot of slander from these past few few years. And so good on him for hanging in there. Again, it's one game and I know he can say like he had a really good summary. I had really good pre season. Still one regular season game. It still gets a little bit more convoluted when Josh Richardson is out there. And Al's out there like, you know, if I'm ne Smith and Pritchard and Roby I'm thinking, man, we didn't play a lot of minutes and again when 58 minutes and there was a thin rotation. I'm very curious about how this rotation looks. But I guess they're still in a better spot than want you and all that. But yeah, good for Romeo. Yeah, one of those guys aren't gonna play. I feel like when I fall off because with Horford back, I mean, Harvard, it's gonna take a lot of rob's minutes, but Dan, or even grant when it's two, but if Pritchard and nismo for only playing 1112, I could see Richardson play 20 minutes a game if you know if he's playing well..
"brad wanamaker" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"I mean I I would hope that he would be genuine no matter what his team situation is but it is oddly coincidental that he is the team by far most impacted by this cuz you know what? No one in the Eastern Conference is complaining about the plans for them because they all know none of them deserved to be in the playoffs. Anyway search happy to be there. The Mavericks are like the team most impacted. So that's that's it. I never did my master lock in the night. So my master lock is going to Brad Wanamaker Brad want to make a shot 1/4 11:00 from the field five assists is a bad but one for 11 shooting for points eleven shots 4.042 from 3 did have a couple of turnovers impact. Mine is he was a -26 - 26 and plus minus while shooting one for 11. I think the Lakers put the master lock on Brad Wanamaker. Yeah poor Brad Wanamaker. I mean I almost want to like I just feel bad for the guy that that is a truly horrible performance. Wow. Yeah. Yeah, that's that is certainly awful. Yeah, and and I don't think that that want to maker is oh, somebody said want to make sure should have been the next ban up want to make her was the best player for the Lakers. I mean mine is 56 and an eight point loss. That's pretty good. Yeah, that's that's crazy. That is that absolutely is Edward Barrel from Facebook page said, I don't like the player rotation. It'll be better if they put Gasol with Harold to cut down his workload on the boards Vogel should use a big guy more often in the rotation just saying so Montrezl Harrell II rough game in a row after he really really picked things up with LeBron and AD went down we've seen some really great performances tonight is two games in a row. We're just just kind of rough for try 6.5 Boardwalk. No offensive rebounds that's two games in a row of no offensive rebounds for one of the best offensive rebounders in the NBA 24 minutes for Trey's that's not the production. We're we're used to seeing out of him and we're seeing some rebounding problems pop up while he's out there on the floor. Do you think the solution could be to play Marcus all and raised in the same line up knowing that you lose some foot speed? I do not understand Frank vogel's unwillingness to pair Marcus on maybe Marcus all's injury is why he didn't play tonight..

"Are we going to see that in the post season? That's why even if you don't think they're gonna make it to the finals, you got to give them an outside shot. So even you know, the discussion on your favorite place to discuss basketball on Twitter has dwelt a lot about steps minutes and watching that game against Brooklyn. Let's see what Katie and James Harden and Kyrie comeback in against Brad Wanamaker and Andrew Wiggins just Looks like that was it. That was pretty much the game. Where do you Where do you come down on What Steve should do with steps minutes to the recent alterations to the recent rotation switches or are you do you see what he's trying to accomplish, and they need to stick it out. I'm fine with the minutes. I think at this stage in steps career given that he's not the most durable players given that he's not the biggest of players I think around. 33 is fine. And people can quibble that it should come here should come there. Um, and maybe sometimes Steve should ride it out when they have a chance to win the game. I get all that. I just think that overall, what's happening is so much better than a coach who burns a player out that it's almost not worth obsessing over and we all know they're not going to win a championship. They should be trying to get to the playoffs. That should be the goal. But if they miss it, I just don't think it's the end of the world. I think what matters is keeping Steph Curry fresh. Not bringing him out having him still being elite player When you get clay Thompson back and another draft pick back next season, I think what's tough about it, and I understand what the fans feel and what they're talking about. But I agree with you and thinking this is a big picture. Long term thing. You want to run Steph into the ground and played more, you know, put more miles on his legs than most guys do. Go into five straight NBA finals. On missing a lot of last season, but I'm looking at the bench. And I'm going. You know Brad Wanamaker fill in those minutes. Michael Boulder filling those minutes. Motor's okay as a shooter, obviously and came. Baseball has been nice off the bench, but in spelling Steph, do you think they're You're gonna need somebody else or something else there. Yeah. Yeah, They need somebody to come or capably run the offense. I mean that they needed that for so long. They often miss that and that's what they need. I need to make another point on stuff, though, Which is yeah, Fans are more minutes from him. But one of his minutes is not the same as another guy's minute. He plays one of the most tiring brands of basketball. Offensively in the league. He never stops moving. It's not the same. Some of these guys, they take possessions off, you'll see what's what von Braun Windows has said that that one of the reasons LeBron is able to pace himself. If he does take possessions off. Would you pass the ball and you kind of stand there in your way for things, then fold stuff is going going going off so many screens. It's all the more reason to protect him. That's all the more reason why 33 minutes works. But you're you're right about that. That That the problem isn't staffing problems themselves. Minutes. The problem is the roster, The supporting master and the inability to find a guy to run the offense in his absence. I mean, I'm watchin Jared Jack in the D League do really well and I'm thinking about man with 13. I just miss hearing his name called by the P A. Rich. Yeah. Who's your rather Jerry Jacker? Jeremy Lin, who you take it. Dear Jack. Man, Getting back at mid range is crazy. Are you ready to offer up your public apology to Kelly? You break who is shooting 45% from three over his last eight games. I mean, that's great. They're going to start guarding them. So that's that's great. That's a great She's like, Wow, they might actually start playing defense. Although there's like 41%. How many times was he guarded? And that? Yeah. I mean, it's It's a great development for the Warriors. I still think I just don't know of the style of play really matches with the Warriors, Theo and maybe because you know these things for dynamic you. You play a lot of games, things change. Maybe he's going to get into that flow. What they do a little bit better over time. I'm not writing off the possibility of it. Um, but, yeah, I don't. I don't necessarily see a massive shift in the approach. There's still a lot of early shot clock three pointers off the dribble three pointers. Um, I guess he's really feeling himself in that way. And it just doesn't seem like a long term fit to me. Is there a scenario where he's traded to the deadline this year? There could be And maybe this is the best thing for them is that they need somebody to really spells staff. As you're saying, And maybe you Bray is starting to play better. And some of these nationally televised games. The Warriors are on a lot of them. I mean, they were on the last two ABC Primetime games, and they're often on these cable games. So a good Kelly, you great performance goes a long way. I could see that that could make a lot of sense. I'm with you, though. I say. Get Jared Jack here, man. I'm sort of being that 1000% onboard with the Jerry Jacks. That's new does not miss from the mid round. Then I'm in in the veteran presence. He could run the offense off the bench. Me perfect would be perfect. Oh, there, Ethan. We appreciate the time today, man. Next time, Marcus and I feel it will definitely give you the call. Hey, do you know even wrote a book? It's called Victor Machine. Yeah. Adam. Colin did not know. I wrote he didn't know I wrote Golden. He was like, Did you write a book on Steph? I'm just making sure he knows you wrote a book. Your daughter didn't even read the book, but she knew I wrote it. Victory machine. Check it out by your address. It's a quarantine dream. Thanks so much. Thanks A lot.

"brad wanamaker" Discussed on Bob Ryan & Jeff Goodman NBA Podcast
"And again ultimately listen ultimately the the the strength of the Celtics if Cameron gets healthy is the bench is going to be better now right you have Jeff Teague coming off the bench near who can who could score the ball absolutely score the back up grade is he over Brad Wanamaker well an upgrade in a sense that he's done it for years yeah want to make a choice was really good though and sports I'm really happy for him he went to Golden State yeah good for him yeah I mean he really for health professional had fought his ass off just to get into the Dead Pit player right just tough hard-nosed, you know just you know lunch pail guide the ultimate lunch pail guy. So I'm really I didn't say two words also just went out there and played ball and great locker room got quiet. So I'm happy for him. But yeah, it's an upgrade because every time Jeff Teague steps on the court guys know he's capable of going for fifteen or Twenty with want to make sure he would have a spurts a game here and there but you could play t long minutes when with want to make sure it was always Brad your own need and 1 minutes if you've got no choice if canvas hurt. Yeah. Okay. Well, so that's what's that's what's happening here in Boston, and we patiently wait Campbell and see what happens here. But you hear the news that your boy Doc is going to return Ben Simmons to his rightful spot as really no no Port no way Jose. Power for four wheel is your point guard again experiment didn't last long. He had a four-man. But listen, I mean, it's a point guard wherever you put in Bob the key for Junk as we've talked about is what With the shot between as you're going to you know, join the 21st century or not. So, you know, it's something you're like not too long. I would you know that but if everybody else would go along we could you know, you know, really legislate the three out of existence in the next 5 minutes. You should go back and put that would bend be how good would been have been in the eighties. Oh boy. Yeah. Well there was this a magic government. They're you know, really what we're talking about, you know to to a degree, you know, the Thursday it's it's reincarnation to a degree at six feet nine ball handling dexterity efficient know. Yeah, I mean a lot of that's what magic was magic had to adapt this month we came in and make himself into a better shooter and he did, you know, he was never a devastating but he was he was told you he is ugly looking right was that it was mostly off. Tippy Toe thing set you know, but but he had it and it was part of any incorporated into where it was there and it was part of the deal and he was a threat you know, and it was better at you know, so cuz off the great players as a rule and on and and and work on their weaknesses and never get the year. I'm telling you I can still hear Larry Bird when they got swept by the box and nineteen eighty-three and he missed the game when he was sick and it was things going on there that they were all failing on Bill Fitch everybody but him quite frankly and it didn't go well that the Bucs were very fortunate to catch the Catholics when you know as they caught them and and and and they took advantage of it good for them..

"It would have been insane for him too often to one year given his injury history and the amount of money that he was going to lose this year. So there was never a chance he was going to opt into this month not to mention the fact that they could have just dealed them anywheres a great expiring contract if he did that there is a chance to opt into it. If you don't think there is a chance Bobby he could have opted in but you should automatically we understand what he's looking for. Yeah. We nobody's looking for security. You think a guy like that wants to play on a one-night deal? Yeah injury history. I mean of all guys. All right, no one cares about your name. We can talk about enes Kanter the rest of the way. Hey, I have some big Celtics news here that just came you guys want to hear it. Yeah Celtics have extended qualifying offers to tackle fall and Bobby's guy Tremont Waters Edge. Oh, so how about this one? This is the an interesting one on the Hayward front. The Celtics declined to make Brad Wanamaker restricted free agent that seemed obvious to me after they really change after they took two players yesterday including a guard. I mean, it's a numbers game. They're still taught they bring him back for Less. I hope so because if you're just letting him walk without even the wage they lose Hayward outright like we talked about here. We're talking about bringing him back. Yeah when you want to make your back, but if he's an unrestricted free agent now there's real interest in want to make around the league. I would say. Oh, yeah, We got one leg had a good year. Oh, yeah, and he well no, nevermind overseas isn't really an option this year. Yeah. We got Cantor also, there's a rumor that he's involved in the Portland deal. Dementia, we'll see about that. There's another rumor to the Knicks have been interested all week other rumor Indiana very much alive for Hayward. So we're still here and stuff. I have been on on the Twitter machine and a little wild guys anything new coming across here. Now things are dead quiet. And this is the other a lot of Gordon Hayward slander the Twitter just freaked out when that song came across. So this is this is the other big difference between the Horford situation. If I remember this correctly did in Philadelphia rise as a Suitor pretty quickly after he declined that option off and fill out Horford came out of nowhere It came it was it came out and it was done. Yeah. So you don't quite have that here. There's a lot of smoke and noise and stuff gets into the media. Thought you said John because of Leverage points and you have three sides talking legroom hear the Celtics those teams that don't want Hayward to go through the roof and don't forget these sign and trade Partners assign a game. It does have to be three years want to keep the price low there as much as they can. So if there was a obvious outcome to this things would be awful more quiet..

"The Celtics have done a better job than any team in the NBA of mining off the European free agency market and it's worked out sometimes like I think Brad Wanamaker has been an undeniable success in that regard. But Daniel I want success. I mean look you get a backup point guard four or five million. That's a win at the end of the day and sure agreed agreed. Yeah Wanamaker's been great and Daniel's house has been an unquestioned success. Like they've done a great job Finding Diamonds in the Rough in that Marketplace, but not all of them are going to work out like poison didn't you know? Sure, I mean just not all of your barely above minimum big men are going to turn out to be guys that are going to be available for the future. I think Poirier just stood out because he just thought never played they didn't give any opportunity in the game. I just wrote about this the other day on the athletic the game that stood out to me was they were it was the last game before the trade deadline thought they were facing the Sixers and Joell embiid and I think Cantor was unavailable and I think maybe time was also one available. So they had like no other Senator besides Poirier to get some of these minutes in the second half against a bead in Steven Silva side of the put Grant Williams out there instead of a Poirier in like the one chance you could get to show. Hey, by the way people Vince Emporia is only making two and a half million dollars wage forget. He can actually go out there and play against NBA players and they still didn't put him on the floor. And when I saw that I'm like, wow, there is no scenario where they're going to put for a out there. Yeah. It's kind of unfortunate. That but it seems unlikely that he's going to stick in the NBA. They have let's actually do account here Kemba Walker Gordon Hayward Marcus Smart. Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown Daniel. Theis is on a non-guaranteed but it's so low that it's an effective guarantee. Oh, it's guaranteed wage..

"For 63 pointers here in the second quarter so far makes a big difference. But again, it's funny after watching the Boston Toronto Siri's Again two incredible defensive teams, But the pace of this game is much more rapid there up and down the floor. Both of them are shooting threes quickly when it's there, so that spreads the defence out, but it's still it's it's uncanny to watch how many deflections and how hard it is for teams to go where they want to go. It's become almost improvisation creates something because the way it's diagrams not gonna work. Against these two defense is Brad Wanamaker. It's the first free throw unties the game Second one rattles home, Tatum went off between free throws as Kemba Walker check back in 44 42. Celtics lead the Heat.

Walker got deep tried to pass on the corner across by Butler out of bounds. The Miami Heat are five for 73 point shooting in the second quarter.

"He's a weird case with me because I I think a lot of his talent but here's a guy everyone thinks of NBA players as a certain way. Here's a guy that's just you know, what he's there for the team. He's playing physical defense. He's getting up on people exactly what you want. As far as his shot goes the mechanics of their all these things but here's an NBA guy who doesn't have enough arrogance. He's not enough of a jerk, you know, this is a guy that appointment he and I have talked about it, you know in more colorful language to be more of a and or more of an anyway, but it's Tracer because he's a guy that should be saying like here's I get the ball. It's going up. Yep. This have lunch you know, and but he gets the ball and sometimes he'll hesitate. Sometimes he won't he had a couple of need some good shots in the Toronto series, but a couple of times he can you watch enough basketball you can see when a guy's playing or shooting with confidence and when he's not and he may say has confidence image that's you know confidence is you know, where it's at for a shooter. You know, I've got my theory on its you've that, you know, if you're ready to shoot or not the great players in the last couple of minutes the game aren't great because they are just talented it's because they have the grass belief that their shots are going in in a case of the Larry Bird he took you know, I think it's practiced. You cannot so many shots that the end of game. He's like subconsciously. I don't think Larry sat down and wrote this out in longhand, but it's like I've earned the right to wage this shot. And that's the kind of mental approach that has to be I think it's I know know that that show me works hard enough and I know he's got all the right things in his mind as far as he's playing the right way. But anyway, we're kind of got off on a semi tangent, but you know, I think that's where some of them minutes could come but then again like you you're saying they could just come from Brad Wanamaker because they may want to keep Chevys defense as part of that, you know use his fouls or just using it up and someone's face on the perimeter that ability because you're going to be switching a lot and you know, you're going to see show me he's going to wind up on bam adebayo of once a month..

"Against, the raptors in the bubble I think he had like fifteen points or something like that and shot incredibly well but they can't count on Brad wanamaker to do that regularly and frankly I don't think they can really count on anybody in their rotation to do this regularly in less. Robin. Williams in the flashes that he's shown are real and I'm not really convinced that they are to be honest just. Given. What his role has been throughout the entire year, I would imagine that and I know that he dealt with some injury stuff throughout the middle of the year but just giving the Brad Stevens doesn't seem to have like a crazy amount of faith in playing him at the moment I think it's reasonable to question whether or not. They're going to play him a ton in the play offs as well. So. I'm. Not Saying that. I'M NOT SAYING THAT TORONTO IS. Better Than Boston. Necessarily, I, think I, trust them a little bit more, but it's a fascinating matchup just because Boston has the Kinda defensive scheme breakers that you need to win in the playoffs. Yeah for sure and you know like. Williams is an interesting wine Robin Williams rather because you know he does offer some stuff that could be difficult for trolley. The fact that he's a vertical ob threat Is Important if you look at how Toronto spaces the floor defensively in pick a role scenarios. And the fact that he offers some rim protection I know I know Boston's Rim protection and Brim deterrence is held up fairly well with with ties. Dennis. Cancer but Robin Williams adds an extra dimension there too. So if they do go deeper I, don't think obviously Williams is a guy after going to test and see if they could play him off the floor and Co Nebraska, Stevens faith of them. But yeah, you know I think. I think Boston has Louis Asman for republic, tweeted the other day. The Boston has three guys who were in the eighth percentile or higher isolating and I think that's kind of the approach against Toronto is the to go one on one with shooters around so. Yeah it's. To be a fun one, it's going to be stressful one. I'm really interested to see how Boston. Deals with Kemba Walker because I. Don't think. Cambe is one hundred percent healthy and Boston has been pretty clear about that as well that the knee is still bothering him at least in some regard. In then How they deal with him defensively particularly is going to be interesting because he is a real potential matchup problem for Boston, on defense and A. Real. Potential match to be exploited on offense for an opposing team. So How they deal with the Kemba Walker of this whole thing is just something that I'm not really sure how they're going to..

"Job of keeping the Celtics off the line. To be their 12th and 13th attempt. Let's have attempted only three. Brad Wanamaker makes the first free throw at a Pittsburgh Philadelphia native. He's been around In Germany, Italy, France. Couple of seasons in Turkey makes that free throw. Wanamaker Mile is named after 30 to 25 Celtics 48 seconds to go in the first quarter. I remember the department store Wanamaker's There's TLC Wild Cabral working in the paint Romeo language stripped him. All goes out of bounds off TLC. It'll be Celtic ball good play defensively by the 14th pick and last year's draft Romeo Lankford in Indiana. He's our play defense, you could tell. They came immediately on the floor to defend, delivered when he was out there playing really good defense on that, his shirt says enough. That's what they say Brad Stevenson, Enough! Get in there and defense above. There's Marcus Smart now across with a court line on the far side, A lot of back cut for Robert Williams in two hands. Slam of the value of the Celtics have their largest lead of the first quarter at seven. 32 25 Boston 22 seconds to go in the first Nets don't have the pace they've had right. The ball hasn't been up the floor popped around much. The Celtics if kind, really level them out. She owes a six to shoot drives in the paint, kicking on the weighing temple pump calmly steps into a 20 foot or it's no good. Backed up by road, but it comes to Hey, we're down to three seconds to go in the quarter and Theo's a fouled Hayward at midcourt in transition. On that nets over the limit, having a pace on offense, and it's hard to get any pace of when you're following people in there, shooting free throws. I haven't gotten it up before. That hasn't been moving. They haven't been in again. This is the 14th and 15th free throw off the game, and it's the first quarter. They were makes that free throw because of bad a very slow moving first quarter. 10 to 1 run here for the Celtics free throw on the ways Good Bailey, 34 to 25 Final seconds of the first quarter. The Wildwood Kabarole mid Court heave is off the mark and after 1/4 in Orlando, it's the Celtics 34.

"To do right now and I think Jayson Tatum said it best saying insensitive to not come back when there's millions of people out of work. So it's like really insensitive to be crapping on the accommodations when like we said millions of people in this country are out of work, but I do think the one real complaint they get to have it's a lot to ask to leave their families. I mean Robin hayward's Instagram post yesterday. I broke my heart. I know it was so sad, especially when she said that Gordon Hayward puts the kids to bed every night and sits with them until they fall asleep. And then now these little girls are just without their dad. And they got used to him being around. I mean that's the other thing is like they're these kids are used to their parents not being around all the time, but then their dads have now been home for months and they're just around all the time and now kids are used to that and I feel like that's a completely separate issue from you know, the accommodations complaints and everything because the legitimate thing here is that you have men who are leaving their families behind and you and I talked about hoping that families would be allowed to come to Disney World looking like they will a very select few maybe that it's not obviously a definite yet, but it's looking like they want to have families come back after the first round of the playoffs. Yeah still that's quite a substantial amount of time. We're looking at playoffs and September and October. So it's just rough. It's like you just feel for these kids. Do you see Brad Wanamaker bringing the pillow with his kids that was a game and posting the Instagram story off. And then kind of like I'm single and I don't go anywhere. So I'm cool. Right I know baseball is also coming back and fortunately for them. They've really lucked out. It looks like they're going to be able to say and their home ballparks when they're not on the road for away games throughout the whole season. So they really lucked out there that they'll be was not into the centralized location idea, especially because Arizona and Florida are now like the to Global hotspots of the pandemic. It's like, can you imagine putting fish in a barrel if they've been in Arizona? Did you see that chart that was like wage cities and countries that have the highest outbreak new case outbreak numbers per day and it's like sound terrible. It's Arizona and Florida and South Carolina. 3 before any other place not in the country in the whole world speaking of coronavirus..
