Fresh update on "hakeem" discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"You know, staying around the team being here taking that help doing those things. I think is important. I know rob was around a little bit, so I'm not saying you completely took off. But someone like him, who's this young? I don't think you should have that difficult to time. Getting into killer shape and getting himself physically right because sometimes he does look like it's a conditioning issue. Sometimes it did look like at the beginning of the year there was a weight issue. The camera for him too is he's like, you know, even if he gets really, really good here, he's probably on the outside of that USA thing, which I think is a big deal for some people as well. That's never really been his thing there. He wasn't on the youth USA circuit. Yeah. Even the AAU thing for him wasn't like a natural delete. Like that was something he didn't lay in high school that he was hesitant to do. He didn't really want to leave home and you know he's just been sort of leaning on this insane athleticism for so long and it's taken him to this height, which is just wild. Now he's got also a strange strange instincts like you know the pasta. Some of that stuff is, it's actually high basketball IQ stuff at times and also zero basketball IQ stuff at times. Or just lack of discipline to remember the thing that you're supposed to do. But some stuff is so instinctive to him. And some stuff you're like, what are you doing, man? You know? Nick loves this idea and I saw Alex Congo tweeted before the game. Can you get it with KG? Like would that be a thing? Would that for an off season? Is that part of KG's thinking here? You know, want to be close to the team with peers as they talk about with max and it just that whole thing that I don't know if that matters, but it's an idea, right? Like just having him with somebody with some pedigree and who is worked with young players in the past. I know the rockets have done stuff like that with Hakeem and players certainly have their trainers. But just something beyond going home and hitting the gym and being in the practice facility and putting some shots up and left in some weights over the off season like there's got to be something better to add a layer to his game. If they're gonna lean on him to be like the big third piece and that if he stays the same, he'll be a helpful role player. But there is a sailing here, I think we're starting a glance at that says he could be like ground Tatum and rob. That could be like your big three. And he's gonna have to add layers to his game from a shooting, reveling in scoring perspective that make him a more versatile offensive threat. No doubt about it. No doubt. And it would be a bummer if he does, 'cause man, you're just starting to see how high he could get in that Echelon of NBA centers. And just then being players as a whole is not many people do as many things from the center spot as him. Adding it up, it's like embiid, Giannis, jokic, probably damn. And then he's like the 5th guy who just does everything from.

Finding Bipartisan Common Ground
"In my years in D.C. before I became ranking member and had to fight with Nadler and the judiciary committee the whole time. But Hakeem was my partner. My democratic counterpart owned things like first step act, which was the criminal justice reform. The music modern is a cloud act. He and I worked through some very large pieces of legislation that was technical and trying to get through. But he and I worked through those. Now, make no mistake. He's very liberal. I'm very conservative, but it was that bond that we could find in the areas where we could agree, we were choosing to agree.

Nancy pelosi So give us give us a pelosi story that we we don't know about give us give us a insight to what it's like working with her that we don't that we don't know well and you you don't have to suck up all too much. You just give me give me something really well just simply say this. I think that We all we know that she's smart as a whip And we'll go down in history as one of the most legendary legislative leaders ever She's tough and she's fair at the same time. How does she keep people to get the the the the caucus together. I mean there's rarely defection. There's got some trouble with this tax bill but there's a rarely defects. What does she do to she. She's not a yeller she's a she's she come out like her daughter i said was. She's kind of like an italian grandma. Sometimes you know kind of guilting you in the store what would is. What is her superpower there. Well i i would say One was clear to me is that she loves the caucus. She loves the congress the constitution and the country. That is clear in everything that she does. I hadn't heard the italian grandmother analogy But that makes a lot of sense to me in. Italian grandma is very loving but also if you cross the line. There could be some challenges. Yes as as someone who has had a couple of time. Grandma's i feel that would it be learned from her personally. What would have you watched her up. Close she's obviously. She's a huge fan of yours. I remember sitting various to'real board where she was talking you up several years ago. What have you learned from her. Well it's been amazing opportunity To be able to work closely with her to learn from her And to watch how she leads during a very difficult time she was really built for this moment and was the tip of the spear in leading us out of the trump era winning the house governing pushing back against donald trump and his excesses and ultimately holding the house and helping to make sure we won the senate and the presidency. The thing that i've learned from her. I think that is most impressive. Is she respects. All aspects of the broad coalition of house democrats progressives and she represents a very progressive district here in san francisco. As i do beck at home. The people's republic. Oh brooklyn yeah same thing..

The apple trees on the plum trees. And i can only do. That's due to a loss of pollinators. I don't know why that would be the case But i just wonder know. I don't know that a planet that's the only living things that humans use is viable. I don't know that is not viable. But i feel like that's not a good formula that yeah if it doesn't serve me i don't care about. Yeah well that's kind of you know our treating the other life forms or the player Yeah for hope you know is the human potential for me I see so much potentially humanity right. If we would trusting. We were trustworthy. We'll be star trek tomorrow but you know the people who who is a top of our political classes. You don't always seem to. It seems to be about power agreed dynamics quite often more so than service. What's best for the nation. What's best for the people And and you know. I'll give you another example. I would love to see humanity as a whole. Come together you know. We've had three atmospheric emergencies global warming acid rain hole in the ozone layer. Right what that says to me is. Oh we can engineer our atmosphere. Yeah going into an international treaty to do that. We're like oh let's go for all the money we can't use. We created a crisis now. Let's fix the crisis or pretend it doesn't exist right so anyway. I don't know what else going forward that think you know it is. It is the human potential.

"Brings up one other thing for me as you were talking about working as a professor and kids coming to you and revealing their their horror stories and their pain and through your book telling about your own personal Horror stories and your pain. And i think one of the things that really i don't know comes up for me as this idea of frame of reference. Just like you were talking about with if you haven't eaten in people like a. I don't know i eat every day I remember when i was working. I worked in foster care for for a few years as part of my training in in a group home setting so i was hearing many of these horror stories. That you talked about it was My my population of patients was There were all girls Kind of preteen adolescent preteen and teenage girls. Many of them had been trafficked. Many of them had like pretty violent abuse and neglect mysteries. And one of the things that really resonated for me. And i feel like we all get this intellectually but once you really get it emotionally so many things fall into place for you. Is that kids who are violently and horrifically abused in the home when they're young. Don't know that that's not normal. Because that's their frame and it takes a while to once they enter into the greater world to understand options to understand that. That's not everybody else's frame. And i think we say we see the same thing with poverty with class divides with race divides if we keep people segmented and they don't have a seat at the table. They don't know that that seat even exists right. Exactly i'll give you a good example of what justice right so i used to television show called outrageous acts of science. Yeah we would frequently saying this hotel. The sheraton universal. Oh my gosh you must know. Karen bondar care good for instagram love. It doesn't go anyway. You how many times. I'm in that hotel and the elevator opens and it's a woman at her children in a children's start getting on the elevator involves docile and they let the door slow to catch another way by not with him like a nice guy in the world right or even like when i was in boston like this is the one i don't i didn't get i was taking the train everywhere next to me. Why is it there so you know. I don't smell of decent looking guy all these. These microaggressions that that occurred at people are just completely unaware of and it is. There's nothing you can do. You know being you know like for example you know a woman named arena holbrooke okay. So she's an amazing woman she. She speaks six languages. She's a black woman rovan. La got her undergraduate degree at caltech went to uc. Santa cruz do astronomy. But then decided. I hate the field or at least the people in the field so let me study the people in the field right if so.

You're not just gonna give up. You're gonna say that's okay. I have other things to offer. And i have other interests.

"These things are so important and the other thing sticks out to me is when you were talking about your friend who ended up at ames This idea that culture. It's such a funny thing. Because in many ways culture happens to us and it exists as a as a collective that feels so much bigger than us which were powerful enough and we sorta are swept away by the tides of culture but at the same time culture co created. And you and him created a culture together that normalized and allowed you to be yourselves and you may not have had that if you hadn't found another kid to cope out yes absolutely you don't know that aspect of it was this is one. That's tough but i know truth. I was lonely at by alone. I would like. What am i going to do. It became. I know what i'll do. I'll play with flammable the sharp odds on the country right so i could like i kid you not i used to do. I love playing with fire.

Lukaku Looks for Chelsea Return
"Raking holiday to join us to discuss roman lucon q. And the possibility of joining chelsea before we get to that. Let's you back to july. Shall we say to say revenue. Kaku is untouchable for us. This summit we can say yes absolutely. Lukarco is not for sale. New cargo is an important piece on the chessboard. Available to in zoghbi. However obviously the story has snowballed over the last seventy two hours. These were protests today from the inter. Milan fans saying board. pay attention. Promises should be but it looks like new kaku is returning to chelsea. Gazettes us saying lukarco towards goodbye. Meanwhile credit sports saying lukaku atmosphere of farewell. Gab this is gonna happen isn't it certainly pointing in that direction. And the reason is and you saw signs from from injuries. Alturas interest supporters The papers they know what's happening at inter they know the degrade financial difficulties that the parent company soon has faced. They were told that there had to be cutbacks That's part of the reason why antonio conte left but there were also told that okay Hakeem he's moving on and we're gonna cash on hand And that's it. You saw those words from dr Now it's a little more subtle it's not just about not selling lukaku. Also they said if it comes in does go and we accept that we get stupid price for him. You have to sell them We want that money reinvested in the team. And it's not fair that that's going to happen. as opposed to in the money may be flowing back out to the parent company or perhaps simply being used to pay down the debt And that's really the crux of the matter.

"hakeem" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Go bill. The end is near. The end is where did you. What was the biggest lesson for you from this basketball season. Did you take anything away. Did so you feel like the bucks. Were the right team that won. And yet i could argue. If durant's big toe is six inches back the nets when the title like i like how regular remember this season five years from now they could sustain. They couldn't couldn't get they couldn't play well enough to get kyri box. They could play well enough to get heart and healthy. The bucks did that. Yeah we watched the guy have made me one of the most catastrophic looking injuries with not and they held it down until he got it so to me. That was the difference. I'm like this is the whole down here. Can you hold me down. Yeah you hold your best players down. And the milwaukee bucks held them down so i tip my hat to. Because the lakers couldn't do it. You know so. Yes could philly philly kind of been have to do it. They just didn't play well so they were the best thing. Would you trade. For ben simmons without question you know i used to play with a couple of guys and as you say. They couldn't super basketball all through my life high school college. Whatever and i always a good shooter. But i'm like oh come on. Let's go workout. will you come. We'll get jumper right. We'll get an eighty johnson. I said but you know we gotta get to a point where you're gonna shoot it. Well enough you're gonna tell you. But i still do this so well. You're not you still might not see it. So let's concentrate on what you do really well. So yeah you don't shoot the three but they might not ever have to see it you know and that's when you start becoming a leak and that's what you honest it you said. I don't super three while. But i'm gonna do this so great that you might not have to see and i think ben has really focused on that and say i'm gonna push the basketball at six foot ten at a pace that you might not ever see me shoot at three but i will work on what you might have this. Yeah i guess. I'm a big defender. Has i thought he was terrible. In the playoffs i mean he obviously fell apart. The question for me is there's this i think as a regular season guy. I could build a team around in. That's good right like you said. I put the ball in his hands. I'm running. i'm going shooters. I'm just. I'm i'm giving him the car keys doing his thing. But when we get to the playoffs and it slows down and it gets super physical and it gets tense and you can feel it in the arena and every every possessions like squeezing blood from iraq Do i want him out there in those in those situations. That's the part. I can't wrap by hetero well to be a great to me and lights like a superstar. Not not a lot of all star. There's all sorts to stop a superstar five way to control the game. Obviously we know rebounding scoring assists in his defense leadership and then the last which is the most important for guard is pace of games so in the playoffs. When you play. The scenic sons. With steve nash jason kidd. You still have to play fast. Yeah like they make you play at that. I don't care who you are. You're gonna have to score one hundred ten points. The beat the phoenix suns. with jason. kidd. Steve nash at the point in the playoffs. That's how he has to say to me. That's what i would be emphasizing. If i was a team-mate coach general manager president. You have to play his face and you have to make us play and make other teams say you gotta school hundred ten to beat us and if you could do that no one's going to give a damn about to jump shots well. He's not the player. Hakeem was but everyone forgets there. Was this a key moment right in ninety two before he had his three run where he wanted to get traded. He was out. There was available. And i remember there. Were like reggie lewis for hakeem trade rumors. Every city had their version of like. Can we gotta keep a little like what is happening dame lillard now and i wonder like with this philly thing because to me it seems broken. I just don't think embiid and simmons make sense together. I don't think they're ever gonna make it but we kind of felt like with akeem in houston in ninety two. It's like oh well he can ever be. The best guy in a title team needs to change of scenery. We had all these preconceived things then he ripped off one of the great three year runs. Any centers. had simmons isn't akeem. But it's always. I always i was think about that. Sometimes their trade you don't make can be the best trade you make you know the trade i was just gonna let you actually go through and it was glen rice. And lots of divas for accumulates. What and that's it. And and and i gotta pick glen rice. Was the shooter you saw at. The time was slot. So you know that was a trade. That was gone out. And i remember going to the team and goi- really want about me and then l. Anyway he went to college there. Yeah i can't believe in houston. He's been a place he'd been for twelve years. You know were really close and most of all team. That's well guys. Like we all had a relationship where we could ask the honest question to each other and and he kind of danced around it and so he said i haven't heard.

So what happened. Is that our high school. Now let me tell you about a high school. I grew up in heidelberg high school. Jasper county mississippi each all-black about half down the road. Heidelberg academy all white right and so we were all totally. Go to catholic. It can't have just been a mile and a half down the road railroad tracks or something or nothing like that. You could actually just walk from okay. Did they made it especially cruel they were like. We're not even gonna put me railroads prostate tracks right. You'll be able to look right down the street and see what you're missing. What was the question. Sorry sorry so just how did how did you land in armed services. Which ranch was. Yes i wasn't in. Us navy so it was a very lucky thing for me. What happened was we were all ushered into the cafeteria. And we were given the armed services vocational aptitude battery exams and i will kill all standardized exams everything but the math and so so. What happened was a few weeks later call to the principal's office which was not an uncommon occurrence. Show but when i got there he blew me away with what he said he asked me. He said what are you doing after high school. And i said I will go to college and he goes son. Who doesn't you're supposed to do you. Say how are you gonna pay board. And i said well. I'm a good musician. I'm a good student. I'll get a scholarship and he's like let me introduce you to subway. He takes into his office and in their dress. Whites is senior chief gauge the navy recruiter. He fans up looks me in the eye puts out his hand goals high. Look the most army has twenty thousand dollars a year. This is nineteen eighty-three when he said that number by mother's voice went off in my head. Because i remember her bragging about my brother-in-law earning fifteen thousand dollars a year. And this guy just offered me twenty was at twenty thousand dollars a year after you get out for you then to spend on colleges no no no no no no no this is. This is fulltime navy career right. So i joined the navy thinking michael three or whatever they were gonna put him in the nuclear program. He was gonna go past the new test but they might recruiters like bill. You're so amazing. You know what i get you at the academy but he had never done the process so it's too late but he did buying this program designed to take enlisted people and convert them the officers but it was people from backgrounds that were under educated. So they gave you a year of education. They had to bath classes. The regular bath class in a remedial math class. Now we have a facebook group for all of us that were news boost eighty five eighty six class. They get filariases that they were the regular classroom. Astrophysicist was in a remedial class right. Isn't that remedial class. We were taken from arithmetic through calculus in one year before arriving i never heard the word calculus in my life i did. Luckily i didn't get kicked out until i complete the algebra portion. Okay so just to recap so this this standardized exam you took you did really well on all parts except the math part and you did so poorly on the math part but so well and the other part that they said they brought in the back office but then they put you in the remedial. Math class is that that get that right. It's similar ish to that. You had to think of a place exam. Nasa landed in a in a remedial class. I got it okay so then you became a study at pick it up and then you go to the navy and did and what do they do with you in the navy. Oh man so. I saw off a nuclear program. Then not transferred to the program called and run by the marines and man they kicked do take your bunch so i my discipline level so just to remind people that marines. Actually a branch of the navy needed to remember those also two kinds of nukes there's the nuclear submarines which is just an energy source and then their nuclear weapons. So which of those were you nuclear assigned tunes in summer in fact i had befriended a former nuclear submarine captain and i would sit around with talking about his.

Watching Washington play? And this is really exciting for me personally so welcome to the show brother Mahmoud. We are really excited. An Omer sorta wasted no time bearing the lead as it were It's been a minute since we've actually been on this show. We had a little bit of a hiatus. as I imagine most of. Most content providers out there just trying to sort of make the most of these sort of. Challenging Times of trying to secure people in trying to find the time in the space to record, so we are really excited and and especially grateful that ma'am. Louis was able to take the time out of his demanding busy schedule to be with us on, so thank you again as an I. Echo, everything, immerse, said not growing up in a small town so much, but you were also sort of NBA hero of mine. I came of age in the nineties when I came of age I. Mean Terms of sort of my My my my obsession with the NBA was back in the nineties I lived in Houston Texas. Texas, so you can imagine memo Ta I. Was Huge Rockets Fan huge Chemo Lodge Fan and was fortunate enough to be there when they want those back to back. Championships way back in the nineties, so certainly your era of the NBA, and as closely as we looked at looked up to a Hakeem, being a local on sort of hero of you're sort of the the other Muslim in the League and so is equally exciting, so but like I said we have a lot to sort of unpack as we like to see on the show but where we like to often like to begin is kind of your origin story so. Maybe tell us about you know Chris Jackson and his life, and you know in and you growing up in the south, and in those experiences were like yeah, and I'm really really interested in hearing first time you touch the basketball, and when you really felt at home with the ball in your hand, and all those things I'm going gonNA. I'm going to be jumping in and asking questions because as you can see, I'm pretty exciting go. Numb note will your Ford. Remind me of missing anything Actually I. Can you want to? Start with that verse. First Time. Just the basketball really was. I was nineteen years old Nights to play Vassallo. My brothers Some reason always ended up playing with. Older older guys in now. When I look back I, said you know that's that was a huge plus for me, because those are the guys issue are fast strong when you finally get to your age group. It becomes easy play. John Age because you've been playing with older gasps. But I remember one day I was outside. Central Elementary. In I was playing game twenty one and this lady. Her real name is miss. Cookie or miss asa letter. What we call him is cooking and she was strong African American women like she. She didn't man screaming at you getting on your back in those days, even spanky. At all be playing and she said listen, she said come in Chris come in. Of course you go over there and I went over there, she said listen try out. I didn't even know that right next to me in the gym. It would try elementary. Right. Of Fourth Great in. I said Miss you'RE GONNA have to ask my mother, she said. Don't worry about it just going out. And because she saw something in me when I was playing I win in. Playing Street Ball I didn't know anything about organized while I. Mean I'm taking it driven through people and I'm making my shots. Coach added me listed son. You, gotTa pass the ball. And make a long story short. My first game in elementary school I remember. This guy named Aaron Ross. I'm nervous. Right man would i. do you follow me? By the end of the game. Of the game coach was giving me ISOS telling him get out my way. I ended up with twenty one points, my first game, and just to see the crowd, and the excitement man I was like man I love this atmosphere. is feels especially a little. You a black kid coming out of the ghetto. You know, mother you. Know File Right A. Grown up in poverty surrounded by drug addiction, mother had an eighth grade education. So you're looking at something, and you get this attention from a skill that you have. And now it's dawning on you the May. This could be something. Right. This could be a way out and so that was like really for me the beginning. That moment when they were screaming and yelling. And it wasn't it wasn't. It wasn't like pure. Not like. Your College College Teammate Shaquille. It wasn't like you were this massive. You know massive Guy Hulking Guy. You're probably based. There probably saw your quickness in your your agility new shooting right that that they that they liked yeah. I was I was born with. Vast which muscles being quick and explosive, but until you meant after that moment. I began to wake up. My regimen was four o'clock in the morning. Then I would wake up at five and for years. My Mother did know this was happening. Because I'm not about down a mother her to cut it off. Work to I mean at. And so I would wait until she left I. Heard the call. Crank the not get up. Get myself written. It's still dark outset at the attack. And I decided at that age of of Nanan Jianye said man. This is what I want to become. Be The best. and. I knew that I'd have to come up with a strategy because I'm small to give myself the best opportunity to do that something. What can you do that? Nobody else or not, too.

David Robinson Gerald Wallace who did it once respectively, and when you look at his basketball reference Pige, he had just under two blocks whether it be the one point at one point nine six different times when you do the math that point two point one conveniently out of top one whole number, and that means that irritates them rounding who thirteen extra steals and those six seasons to do this eleven times we have.

Both joined a cumulus, also the only two people doing the same season could really make the case that the ninety five Houston. Rockets are the most impressive back-to-back ever especially. When you consider how hard it was back then to go back to back, the Lakers did in the eighties and eighty, seven eighty eight, but before that not done since the bill Russell Celtics since then joined really been super teams, or you're looking at the Lakers the sheet all those teams are. Just superstars band together they had multiple all stars, multiple superstars, multiple famous kingdom, and have that, and he was still able to pull it off Jordan hundred, ninety, two and ninety, five, the onto players to ever score thirty points in Sixteen Different Games in a playoff run for some fun stops I'm going to pose a few questions to ask yourself.

"And four, and a half blocks game beating Karl Malone Charles Barkley, David Robinson and Shaquille O'Neal now. It's some context. The first thing people bring up when they mentioned. Is that. He really didn't deserve his two championships and that they were kind of gimmes being Michael Jordan wasn't me MBA while it may seem obvious that the best player not being in the League opens the door. Jordan was there and I seventy five while people might say he was rusty. Easy argument to that is where people say. He was rusty when jock fifty five points at MSG, how the playoff series against the Hornets when Jordan averaged thirty, two six and six, and then again against the magic. When you put thirty one, seven, four with three steals a game known Saint John was musty then after playing Houston Ninety. Ninety two the Bulls lost by score, one hundred ten to ninety six, and in the post game press conference Jordan, told a reporter. You know it's a good thing. These guys can get out of the West. Puerto asked him why he said very emphatically. We've got no answer for that big monster. What does that tell you that tells me that Jordan knew that, if the rock drill to get out of the West, or have they been in eastern conference, play them in your out would have been a very different story for the Chicago Bulls another pointing to notice that while you might. The Kim directly beat MJ. He swept. Swept the magic team that beat Mj and six, and the primary reason as I mentioned the last dance documentary recently was that Horace. Grant changed the whole series because the BOJ didn't have the size if they didn't have been Dennis Rodman Ninety. Six Ninety, seven, ninety eight, but balls went out, but to say that for nine, hundred, ninety, four, ninety, five. The Buddhist wanted the same team that we saw later on. So that's a very different story. Another thing to note is that Phil Jackson's notorious for never doubling great big Man Robert. ORY has a great story of a begging Phil Jackson to double. Tim Duncan while Robert Ory. Ory was on the Lakers. In two thousand two Phil Jackson said one guy won't beat us, but Kim would have beaten them because he was that good chemo. Dismantle all the great big men our in his era, and there were a lot of them whether it's the David. Robinson nineteen ninety-five when he completely clashed on the Western. Conference Finals Sweeping Shack beating Patrick. Ewing and straight are playing him there countless times where he completely outclassed them, and that's that's volumes Kim the only player until twenty six broad tweeted title team and five out of five categories notice when he's second to someone or number two that other guy is. Tough guy no one's doubting Lebron being top five, but a lot of people tell you kielmortgage ones on top ten, but broad average twenty six points per game to Kyrie's twenty, five and nine, and a half rebounds per game to. Nine. That's pretty close. Akeem on the other hand. I'm twenty nine points per game to run a match fourteen. That's two times as many points as the next guy and his team. That's carrying talk about the mid to late eighties. USA RAGAS teams is that they had a lot of misfortune, and when I say a lot, they lost Ralph, Sampson, one of the best thing Meta McCain, who was accused fellow twin tower, they lost him to injuries that completely crippled his career.

Batouly Camara: Awakening in purpose
"A young athlete. I would say the bars set pretty high. The first time I ever saw women play Played on old boy. Seen when I start playing basketball I was introduced to the game by woman but the first game I ever went to the WNBA GAME. Sounds like me so it was like Here in our from probably one hour thing and all girl play Basketball Naseen. Hulo Professional League ignorance is bliss so I would say it was definitely suggests reach my potential. I don't think I ever really said I saw WNBA. I loved it but I think it was to work to kind of reach mile potential with my biggest goal. At that moment I started ages twelve to two things on that day for you said the retail potential. You know so at eight to twelve. What did that look real? Potential potential. Just Matt being at the peak of of my career because when I went to the game what I loved the most was the diversity I saw a core and how every body and just being a young inquisitive curious kid I went from seeing Kia Vaughn. Who's like six five to like? Leilani Melanie Mitchell. Like you know five six. And she's fine with two nasty and I'm like they're not the same but they've all kind of reached their potential in some way. Some regard are now that I'm older Still playing still working on their craft. But at that moment it wasn't about comparison is about personal growth. But once you reach your personal growth you can then get to. The highest level is a lot so when you have the game like I want to be on that day I wanNA share the court in. I WANNA know papillon whatever may be. How do you think I'm GonNa go achieving that it was just this sense of actually had a podcast with my coach? Taught me how to make like a a layup as you say you just have this kind of hunger about you and again. It was just as curiosity. I didn't know I didn't know any of those players didn't know anyone at that level but I just remember how much it it bugged me inside. We know nights where would turn. And I didn't know who go to our coaches at that point in a you in Eugene was so far away but they really allow me to focus on day to day. So that's why did I focused on the day to day and just really just trying to put in as much work as I can control. Though I've learned from like the guests every on that lobby will have today on idolized. You know that might become emulate their game. You Watch like I WANNA learn their moves. It was definitely I say growing up Having older brother the account and learn about the men's game so my brother loved Hakeem he always talked about him. Entering accused dream. You know growing up in a Muslim household. You know the keenest fate than what he stood for. That was initial draw but as I became more fan in sunny if it works that he accused Work in all the grades he's taught than us aren't look more about women in my more and I just remember watching 'em in the final four in little wayne was on the sideline and it was kind of this weird thing where I just loved jives and she just seemed like she's having so much fun with it. Saudi young age I WANNA. I played really admired economy. Idle and at. What point did you think like you? I'm pretty good at this ball like I can. May I have a channel teaching my potential never after like it's definitely a journey but I would say probably junior year high school? I remember walking into? We have open gym. You know humor coaches come in at that point. I was out of okay you know. Tunisia was okay. And we walk in and we have over. I want to say twenty five college coaches and these are just hide the coaches so he has stanford that day Yukon. We had Kentucky all in this building and it was about five of my teammates. Three of us. Who ARE REALLY GOING TAB? The one and so it was kind of surreal feeling as a young kid but one that didn't take lightly. I was nervous. You know I wanted to be good. You WanNa why to perform It was kind of in that moment whereas like all Kayla avalon way to go. But we're taking baby steps now to what kept you grounded Theme like Kentucky is the part that really ongoing even kill. What kind of help you day. You know that it always more than technology do more. I would definitely say the people. I was surrounded by they even from a young age like for example when I was fourteen. That's what I went to Blair Academy and that's Kinda where really developed my skills who I am was a person and one of my teammates. Her name is bridget and a net. Infamy this core group seniors who just had great might. You were now walking into the gym and for me. I was a freshman. I was good. You not do it I wanNA and they shut it down. Bridget graduated top of her class at West. Point so talk about someone with discipline and so she was just very adamant about the process and they will get every day for six. Am workouts on. Like talk to me if I did it and say you know you need to be there so constantly always telling me you've never arrived at his journey and my mentor. The same way. Schnee saying you know you've never robbed it journey in their quick to say you know this which means getting better on With celebrate knee. But also telling me what I need to do better. You never arrive there. The journey That deep at the can take value from two. You know just that you can always return another level. He Never GonNa GonNa read them mountaintop. Yes absolutely yeah so when Tom Day. Chew that college could you? You know you were a one Top Not by one or two on the team so they wanna give you ever that. That's really what you're like number two I in the shooting school you know. How did you go about that first? Half that it was an interesting process and to me. The recruiting process started off trae stressful. You have all these great schools you know. I used to just pray guy. God is Doin' in options. The options were there so I was super fortunate to have that because I would live in. I was in the same room with somebody who didn't even know if they're going to get a scholarship. So that can be Ground level headed but I did enjoy the process because I was thankful for thankful to get to know coaches so pretty early on. I create a pros and cons. I created questions. I asked each coach. How far wants to go? If distance even mattered if conference matter at the time. That didn't matter to me. And so from the merits my top five. It's my top two which was Kentucky and Uconn and I remember taking a visit early in Yukon and then taking a visit to Kentucky about may NFL. At that time I was exhausted. I my one official visit but I was exhausted with the process house. Like I'm completely over. This and I may great connections with Girls Kentucky with the coaching staff Mafia comfortable. So at that point and not sadness so that way you kind of felt the exact same way you can. I guess it was there in front of me if fell right at the moment and so cast okay. I'm going into my senior year of a you and I didn't want to have to choose a wine to be solidified before seeing junior year because at the time that's when they first changed a rule so I wanted to be committed by senior year I was died. I didn't want the pressure anymore and committed end so that was an interesting process so again now the pros and cons list talking to coaches distance cannot into consideration. The one came down that pros and cons What kind of look like for me. Family is everything and people say that lightly but I wanted somewhere where I was going to be there for four years and my biggest fear was transferred out one life. I wanted to make the perfect decision. I wanted a place where players came back growing up A lot of places and I've learned I've learned now what it really means to come back in Soviet with access comeback. Why they don't why they do. Because you can be on the team with twelve people in. Everyone has drastically different experiences. But I really wanted somewhere where a majority of the players came back. I wanted a place with rich history. Not just a yeah. We're GONNA Iran this conference but rich like Deep Kentucky history. You know I love that you call history at WanNa tradition. I felt that was important. Especially after coming for Blair Academy being able to see a loan to connect with them. I love that that was huge to me player development players who play like me who look like me And how they developed over time and again just that relationship piece so two that to me again with academics being able to holistic route players. Who actually talked about being a person versus those who actually developed in the curriculum. They had in place. So were you reading a book to your team. And where were they nurturing their growth from outside of school so different things than to Alone could it wasn't just people based on the name of the school. It was like there was office behind how you're going to fit in how you going to be able to enjoy love the that freshman year at. Kentucky. How'd you describe that? Chapter title that chapter. It is so funny. You know the theme for that summer I remember our first conditional gap the code saying arson conditioning coach. He said we're GONNA name this summer. It's GonNa be expect. The unexpected now is the name of the summer so you know it was crazy. Be expect the unexpected it. So that's exactly what I was saying encompassing of my time I could learn so much as a great people. A tough conference plane. Sec everyday eating there is nothing like your freshman year. There is nothing like I'm always in pain. There's nothing you can get shake off the grind on schoolwork at feels never ending the season that feels never ending but also opening up in exploring new party. Yourself INAU May. I didn't know I had an emmy. I knocking show up in that moment. So deftly wasn't adjustment but it was incredibly awakening experience the same beliefs

No sign of end to standoff over Trump impeachment trial
"And now to the impeachment debate here in Washington the Senate Republican leader is accusing house speaker Nancy Pelosi and what he is calling shamelessly game playing those comments from senator McConnell came after the speaker again stated she does not plan to send articles of impeachment of the Senate until seeing proposed rules for trial a president trump the continuing standoff between the speaker and the Senate Republican leader focusing on the president's conduct toward Ukraine comes as the president addressed the nation on the hostilities with Iran a crisis that is now over shadowing the impeachment drama from the Senate floor Republican John Thune of South Dakota but as a very straightforward process one as I said that met with the approval of all one hundred senators both Democrats and Republicans back in nineteen ninety nine the Clinton president is seems to me at least to be a fair way in which to proceed and and won that Senate Republicans have agreed to move forward with soul if and when the house Democrats under speaker Pelosi determine that they are ready to send those articles over here seems like maybe they're waiting for something to rescue what I think is an otherwise fairly weak argument that they have to make but when those articles arrive here we will have a process in place in which to move forward and and and get this trial under way in the Senate and hopefully hear the arguments and at some point in I hope in the not too distant future I conclude this and get it behind us in on to the work that the American people I think sent his here to do obviously there is an election coming up in November the first of all we'll start being cast just a few weeks from now in the state of Iowa and New Hampshire and other states followed very closely on by super Tuesday so the election process is already under way and I think that is the means by which most Americans believe we ought to deal with our leadership and in a democratic system of government we have the opportunities people to express our opinions and the voice argues in that manner and I would hope that that is where we can settle these political differences industries that we have that from Republican John Thune of South Dakota on the Senate floor the hill newspaper reporting a democratic senators are quote growing impatient over the delayed start of the impeachment trial some saying it's time for speaker Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in fact this from democratic senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut telling The Washington Post yesterday quote I think the time is past we should send the articles over reacting to all of that the house democratic caucus chair Hakeem Jeffries of New York sorry say has no the resolution going to like what do you gain by waiting for one of our as speaker has consistently indicated it's very difficult for her to determine who would be appropriate impeachment managers to present the house's case in the absence of understanding the rules of engagement and what the contours of a trial would look like beyond of course chairmanship and chairman Nadler who one would think we're going to be logical choices and participants to lead the effort but what we have seen over the last several weeks all the additional disclosure of documents that continue to highlight that the president did abuse his power by targeting an American citizen for political gain while withholding intentionally three hundred and ninety one million dollars in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine additional documents subsequent to the speaker's decision to hold the articles have come out that's a gain in terms of information to the American people and we've also seen during this period of time that a critically important potential witness John Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed John Bolton had direct communication with the president about this sordid matter and abuse of power and we know from testimony from doctor Fiona hill characterize this whole scheme as a drug deal and the president's main operative Rudolph Giuliani as a hand grenade that from democratic congressman who keen Jeffries part of the house democratic leadership in this note regarding the house California governor Gavin Newsom today saying that he will not call for a special election in the district held by resigning Republican congressman Duncan hunter saying that we received his letter of resignation based on the timing a special election will not be called Duncan hunter officially steps down next Monday after pleading guilty to charges of campaign finance
