Play ktrh on my heart radio sheriff care to take any guesses as to the fifth greatest accomplishment or victory for President Trump in the terrible No Good year of 2020. I'm success stories, things that we do We talk about Middle East we did you nailed it. I knew what you want. Yeah. Number five peace in the Middle East. It's kind of a running joke. It's been like, you know a lot of people when they depart friends, they'll say, peace, you know, peace out and sometimes just goofiness, people say, and I've done it. Peace in the Middle East is just is just a phrase because it's just something that nobody really thinks can ever happen. Well, what happens if a president brings historic peace to the Middle East and the legacy media tries to bury the news. Theofanis horrible list of 2020 all of this from PGA meeting? That's their Burbage, not mine shows what happens, The president loses reelection in January. Trump ordered an air strike that killed Iranian could force general costume Soleimani and after Iran backed militias attacked the U. S embassy in Iraq. Silver Mani orchestrated the Islamic Republic's terrorist activity throughout the Middle East and was reportedly responsible for the death of hundreds of American soldiers. Of course, the legacy media just demonized Trump for doing that. Solmonese death crippled Iran's stranglehold on the Middle East, freeing up Arab states to make peace with the country. Iran considers the little Satan The Jewish state of Israel, Bahrain and the U. S. A normalized relations with Israel. In the Abraham Accords, Muslim majority coast of Oh and Christian majority, Serbia made a historic agreement. That included promises to set up embassies in Jerusalem, Sudan, Morocco also normalized relations with Israel. Do you even agreed to order hotels to serve kosher foods in Abu Dhabi? Delivering a powerful symbol of Jewish acceptance in a notoriously anti Semitic part of the world. These historic diplomatic six successes have brought Trump multiple Nobel Peace Prize nominations, but of course, as noted The legacy media and sure you've been talking about this, each one of these stories, they buried it. In the post election poll. 43, a half percent of responders who said they voted for Joe Biden said they had no idea about these peace agreements with Israel. 5% of buying voters said they would have changed their votes had they known that seems like a small percentage. But a 5% of Biden voters hadn't voted. Trump would have one selection by an even bigger margin than many believe he already did so that that's a massive, massive deal. And again the media did its due diligence in bearing it, sheriff. Yeah, I agree. Yeah, it zest a painful reminder honestly, of the way things were supposed to be done any other president. Any other President? Go back to Jimmy Carter. You know, he was lauded for having a three way handshake with Arab and Palestinian and Jewish leaders. Any president sets the conditions that leads to these historic relations with Arab states and Muslim states and their their sworn enemy in many cases, particularly rounds case. Um you know, Israel, they are lauded in history. And I mean literally will go down in history books for their incredible part in bringing peace to the Middle East. Donald Trump does it and they intentionally Bear this story, and that is and I think it'll probably be buried from history books as well. And quite frankly, when Joe Biden takes office if that happens, and he re enters into agreements with Iran, many of these agreements will go by the wayside anyway. All of the great work will be undone by And incoming potential democratic presidency. Okay, 6 56. This is Houston this morning News on his radio 7 40 ktrh.

San Antonio Spurs fail to reach playoffs for first time since 1997
"Head coach Gregg Popovich was in no mood to reminisce about the previous 22 n BA seasons yesterday after missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997 usually salty pop said, looking at the past doesn't do much good. He was focused on the present proud that his team gave itself a chance to keep that streak going.

Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.

Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites
"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the

"Does he rank being close to those guys because it's very very hard. So ranked players answer ranked coaches across different eras. Nobody saw Gregg Popovich coming because he's in the front office. And then they Tim Duncan. And he said, you know, what I could do this and he's able to do that. And the guys who are able to draft him in. Buford. He has almost twelve hundred fifty minutes of the coach that's winning percentage of sixty eight percent. So if you're gonna put back over there like I've done and Phil Jackson. Back like I've done it's kind of hard. The maybe rank Gregg Popovich case as the greatest coach of this modern era and augment can be made for that.

That's why I'm saying I don't think the jazz were that great and is for Denver. I I just trust San Antonio players and shooters more. Well, I trust Gregg Popovich, I know that much, but I to me I I really disliked San Antonio coming into the season. I don't like their roster at all. So it's it's surprised me to see them go out and win game. One in Denver. I mean, I still think Denver is gonna get out this series. But I I give Gregg Popovich just a ton of credit for getting his team to the postseason. They won like forty eight or forty nine games. And then having them in this position where if they can win this series. He could get them all the way back to a conference final because the two best teams in the in the conference on the other side of the bracket on San Antonio first-quarter tonight. Quarter hop was really upset on how they played last game. Now, whether that means they hit shots. But I like I like the Spurs start strong Denver was kind of making everything in game for the second half. They're better. They're better on paper like over a sample size of eighty two games. Like, they're, you know, they're they're threes. And verse the long twos. I get it. I just I just trust those guys I trust Patty mills.

See even I who hardly Gregg Popovich can see what you would do to take them out in seven game playoff series. Then you throw actual Gregg Popovich in there. And you kinda get what we saw at least in that first game game and a half you said as you said they'd let go of the rope a little bit defensively. I don't expect them to necessarily do that or show explosive though that I could see where they just get red hot. And they just stunned everybody taking that Tonio they could take game. But even if they do that it's just back to even. So we'll see look the number two seed for reason. Now, you gotta go out there. And prove it also wanna get into on this play involving lamarcus Aldridge in Gary Harris from last night, so Aldridge appears to Harris below the belt while trying to fight your screen in the final two minutes of the game.

First of all, you said that should be fine. Do you do you think this is the she get disciplinary action from the league from just the other players? No, you know, no suspension like that is worthy of a fine. Could be retroactive flavored foul, basically. Okay. The thing about this is that we've seen this over the years in the NBA. We always thinking, Draymond and. Wait, wait one Scott suspended for kicking a guy, and it was like he gets harder to determine intent. Right. But he went he dropped like a rock. I never heard on that was hor- to view the intent of that. You know, he could argue that he was just trying through a separate from him. Something I will say that. There are a lot of people on Twitter who backed up the Yokich is technique. I am happy to say that I don't know that technique because I have a need of that. But if I am situation again, there were people on Twitter also said what Yokich forgot to tell them was to hop on his heels. All of that too. Scary yet again. Come on coming up. We're gonna talk about what it Leonard. Also, it helps if you rub one hand on your head and use them. But no quiet Leonard dropping thirty seven in the rafters win last night.

We'll be at the AT and T center tomorrow night against the Washington Wizards that again is a game the Spurs should win. But the Spurs have dropped games like that. And they've dropped them at home recently losing recently to the Charlotte Hornets at the AT and T center losing recently to the LA clippers when the clippers came in short handed on a five game losing streak. Those were two recent home games factor. I think those were the last two home games. I think the Spurs may have lost two in a row at home. So Spurs really need to turn it around tomorrow night. We will see if Rudy gays back from that ankle, it looks like he will be, but we won't know for sure until tomorrow demar Rosen. What will his status be for tomorrow? We don't know. Let's hope he's back dollars per tons. Will he be back tomorrow? I mean, if you're again without Dhamar derozen tomorrow night against Washington, plus 'Davis Bretons and maybe Rudy gay. We don't know for sure that's going to be rough. Let me tell you how you can participate in Spurs react tonight as we celebrate this road win over the New Orleans pelicans. You can dial us up the old fashioned way. I am old school get off my lawn..

"New episodes every Monday and Thursday, you can listen on all the ESPN and apple gizmos stand. Go ahead and tell I know you said this earlier, but Brian win horse wrote the article why the NBA executive coach doesn't work, and he laid out the argument. Of the failures that that have led to Tom Theta recently being fired. So go ahead and tell Brian as he comes on with us how wrong he is. Well, what I said earlier is it not only works. It has always worked in terms of teams getting better in a Gregg Popovich the obvious won five championships. The only conventional model that's worked better was Jerry Krause and Phil Jackson, Pat Riley took over the team in Miami. And eventually came back won a championship. But certainly turned that around Doc Rivers four years with the clippers the best four year period in LA clipper history might Bhuttan Holzer improve the hawks by seven wins a year in the three years that he had both jobs. Tom thibodeau takes over a team averaging twenty eight wins a year the three year before he gets it. And if you add. Average out what it would have been by his win percentage. He he wins an average of thirty nine games a year in Minnesota that team got better. And as I said, I was the worst. And we took over the worst team in the east. Okay. When we came in we improved it by eight wins a year over the four years we were there. So I'm racking my brain to find out Winterton didn't get better with that. I'd so you guys go back to walk on this. I will get Stanton as the pistons where mess when he got there and he got into the playoffs. And that's definitely true. I think it would use the Popovich and Pat Riley examples, the absolutely right, STAN. And I think they are the outliers. I think the clippers they had they had good teams. But I think from a front office perspective, they they did they did very poorly. When doc was was headed the P the president, which is one of the reasons why they took it away from him. And and the the the the hawks went backwards. They were sixty when team in Danny ferries last year as the no win team in Mike's. I you because Danny built the team Danny got removed right before the season started. It was it was Danny's that was Danny's team that we two years later when bud had control for two years. They were a forty three when you, but I don't I don't even think we need to go blow by blow here. I think that the thing about it is and I think. You like to say if you guys do rely on shoe because the what it seems to me Brian at you're basing the fact that it fails on is that the owners decided to go in a different direction. So what you're basing the fact that the model fails on his you're saying the owners never make a bad decision. Oh, you're right about that. I think a lot I think about everything that happens with teams can be traced ownership. I think ownership is the most important thing whether it's a coach selected who to work for or whether it's a player selecting who to play for. I think ownership is very undervalued. But I would say that one of the things, and you you can certainly speak to this in Kadeir day and age, you know, this was not the case with Red Auerbach was not even the case when when Pat Riley and pop took over their teams in the stablishment in the nineties, you get all of the blame a draft pick doesn't work out. You know, you have. A bad month. You know, you you. There's an issue with the player coach relationship. One guy gets all of the blame. And that was harder to survive that's harder to survive these days than it was in the eighties nineties when this when this rose up, and that's something. I think is is a big factor here in today's day and age where the media is all over the league. And like, for example, one of the one of the first things that Doc Rivers did when he became president was the front office botched managing the hard salary cap..

"Stephen what was your action to that? My my my answer to it is that. He deserved. Let me let me say this. Kowal ended. I don't know him for McKenna pain. All I know is that he's a superstar in this league. I think he's a very good guy. I think the men and the class with which both he and Gregg Popovich show just today was exemplary, and I get all of that. I'm not talking about us in the media. I'm not talking about folks for the Spurs or the raptors or anybody in the NBA community. The question is pertaining strictly to the fan base in San Antonio. Yes. You help deliver a championship. Yes. You would you draft by the end of trade, it, you know, them, and ultimately, you know, you produce them and elevated yourself into a star, but the manner in which he departed he basically say we don't I don't wanna be here anymore. I don't wanna be audited anymore. I wanna go. Elsewhere Gregg Popovich was absolutely right. It's perfectly within his right to do that. But it's perfectly within the fans right to say, we don't like the fact that you decided that you. They wanna be a part of us anymore. There's nothing wrong with that. And so that's all they were doing if it were anybody else if he went, and he was a pariah throughout the NBA people going to fall, but I have no problem with fan base in San Antonio feeling that way because basically what he said look dim it the river walk and everything that comes with it. Don't excite me. No more I want out, and that's what home for them and he departed from there. And by the way, department fourth while provoking people to ask questions about the Spurs as an organization because of how presumably they supposedly mishandled his whole injury thing fans can do they wish they can react to any way they want that's on them enforce a lot of times the guy who chooses to leave get food when he comes back. That's not surprising. I don't have a problem with that. I think they should have cheered him. Should've could've not not what they probably were going to do. Which is what happened because he was a finals MVP. He was the best player on a championship team. They've been spoiled by Tim Dunkin a guy who was our top three players in the league many years. Arguably the best player in the league, one of the greatest players of all time was why it's competitive San Antonio and embrace ca fans and never left that never wanted to be never called anyone any problems. Why doesn't have to be just like Tim's speed to be. This is part of the consequence. I wanna say this though, sometimes stance feel like, hey that player owes us something. Normally, they don't know you anything stop. Why maybe a little more than most? I understand the fans reaction the way I think Brady was going to be a great quarterback anywhere. But with Bill Belichick. He's the greatest of all time co I was going to be a great player wherever he went. But I think that his association with Popovich elevated his game, I imagined that it did. I think a lot of people feel that way. Like hold on..

"Gregg Popovich, doesn't know how that game goes. We are going to run wild with this. Because again in a situation where we get so little from the parties involved. We're left to wonder like it's really interesting to view this through the lens of what we've been talking about lately in everything that's going on with Antonio Brown the Steelers and the question of what do the Steelers do when your best player is all the sudden linked to all this drama in a way that finally landed him off the court for you like that's what the Spurs face last year is they believed that a base level. It seemed like on the outside. They believe that he was healthy and Leonard and Leonard believed he wasn't. And so you had your best player off the court not helping your team for this entire time. And it became a point of immense frustration for Gregg Popovich, and it became. A point of immense frustration for his teammates, all of whom spoke out in a way that was so counter to me, but the bottom line up being your a worse basketball team for that. Now Kawai Leonard when healthy has clearly demonstrated he is still one of the best players in the planet. And so I look at this and initially my read was man, this expose. However, you want to slice in what a mistake this Burs organization made one who always seemed to have the plan, and whether it was by circumstance, we're back in the day, you're bad at the right time, and you end up being able to draft him Dunkin while you've still got David Robinson and all these things that bleed into. All right. You're able to get quiet Leonard, and he develops more and more into this MVP caliber player and get you to that point. But then I look at all the stuff that's going on now. And I say, even if I believe Kawai Leonard in protecting his body, which seems to be a different scenario than what's going on in Pittsburgh, even if I believe that if he goes about it in a way that makes it difficult for the team. In a way they disagree with. You can see the difficult spot. It's put them in. And now it's put them all in an interesting enough spot to where I am genuinely excited about Spurs basketball at a point this year in a way that I didn't think was possible first and last podcast. I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel. So I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor.
