Who Controls Bitcoin Core? By Jameson Lopp

"Who controls Bitcoin core? By jamison lop. Understanding how the focal point of Bitcoin development operates. The question of who controls the ability to merge code changes into Bitcoin cores at GitHub repository, tends to come up on a recurring basis. This has been cited as a quote central point of control of the Bitcoin protocol. By various parties over the years, but I argue that the question itself is a red herring that stems from an authoritarian perspective. This model does not apply to Bitcoin. It certainly is not obvious to alignment as to why that is the case. Thus, the goal of this article is to explain how Bitcoin core operates and at a higher level how the Bitcoin protocol itself evolves. The history of Bitcoin core Bitcoin core is a focal point for development of the Bitcoin protocol, rather than a point of command and control. If it ceased to exist for any reason, a new focal point would emerge. The technical communications platform upon which it's based currently the GitHub repository is a matter of convenience rather than one of definition or project integrity. In fact, we already have seen Bitcoin's focal point for development change platforms and even names. In early 2009, the source code for the Bitcoin project was simply a dot roller file hosted on source forge. Early developers would actually exchange code patches with satoshi via email. On October 30th, 2009, Sirius, or Marty Molly, created a subversion repository for the Bitcoin project on SourceForge. In 2011, the Bitcoin project migrated from SourceForge to GitHub. In 2014, the Bitcoin project was renamed to Bitcoin core.

Media Attacks Charlie for Questioning Democracy

"Tim pool's program last week. And I was like, yeah, I think democracy is a bad idea. And oh my goodness, the media lost their mind because they think all of a sudden that means I'm pro authoritarian, which I'm not. There's other forms of representative government other than democracy, such as a constitutional republic, which we actually have not a democracy. And just as you're in on the very important point, a republic is built on eternal truths that do not change based on emotions, needs, wants, or desires. That's the idea of a republic. It's built on things that will always be true. The preamble of the United States Constitution is eternally applicable to human beings. Democracies change all the time. France they redo a constitution every afternoon. It's not a joke. I mean, nothing sticks. It's not stable. The founding fathers are able to build one structure that lasts. It's because they were classically trained. They knew their Socrates Plato and Aristotle, but most importantly, they knew their scriptures. So they knew not just practical knowledge, but they knew eternal knowledge. Eternal is the knowledge. Eternal knowledge is wisdom, the knowledge of things that do not change. How do human beings act who deserves power, how long should they have power? These are things that they built the system around, which is why the constitution is the longest lasting, political document centered around consent to the governed in the history of the planet, nothing has ever lasted as long. And that's a big deal. When something lasts long, we should not try to discard it like the university maniacs try to. We should appreciate it and study it and ask the question why. I always get a kick when people say, well, Charlie, you try to tell me, you know, you believe the Bible is the word of God. It's 2000 years old. They mean that as an insult. Which is it's actually a red herring. It doesn't matter how old it is, but I actually think it's in our favor.

"That's the plan. Anyway, so we got a little clarity on that. The Durant and Andrew Wiggins timetables are a little bit less sort of clear, but let's be optimistic, I guess, if we choose to. Who would you pick right now to win the west? This is a non binary picture. It's a fun pick. Don't worry about it. Who would you pick based on, not if everyone's healthy, not if all these ideal things happened is based on what we know now. You know what I would do, 'cause I thought about this this morning. I think it bodes well for Phoenix that if all these other teams are still trying to figure stuff out that it doesn't put Phoenix anymore behind the 8 ball of getting cohesion with Durant. Also, and I don't really suspect this, but you know, I'm always that person that at the beginning of a season, my first year covering the MBA was 1213, the Knicks. So it was like the last time next fans were having this much fun basically. 54. 54 games. They were a two seed, some people thought that they could realistically get to the Conference Finals and take out Roy. Knicks fans are doing it in their way, dominant. Dominant series by Roy hibbert. It was. But because of that year, I think it's always made me more. That was a year where carmela Anthony ended up playing power forward because of mare stoudemire kind of got hurt or had a messed up knee right before the season. And it kind of forced the Knicks to play around with their lineups a little bit more. So they played lineups at the beginning of the season that they really hadn't rolled out at all. They had like 6 new guys on that team, Jason Kidd was on that team in his last year. And so they were running out with two point guard lineups with kid and Felton. And it made me wonder for a while because the next jumped out to the best start in the league and a lot of it had to do with their spacing and playing mallet before. But it made me wonder like, do teams that haven't had that there's really no film on or very limited film on, is there something that they benefit from out of the gate because essentially it's kind of a crapshoot as to how you're going to defend them and how you're going to play them. So I know that obviously Durant got a couple games in with them. But there's a part of me that wonders you will not have seen some of the counters that they're going to throw out there. Some of the sets that they could potentially implement or other things like that. Kevin Durant, we've talked about how he's kind of the most seamless superstar that you can just plug in to something kind of a plug and play superstar. So I think that all the things that people have wondered about and even some of my colleagues at SI have said like, man, I don't think you can realistically put the suns right there. It's like the favorite with the rant not playing, but we're looking at the Lakers and their situation and maybe them becoming more of a threat if they can make it in and they're healthy and they've got a new rotation of guys. We're talking about the warriors not being able to win on the road and they would need to potentially win four. In a series or not for road games, but they didn't do it for games in a series. And at least one on the road, if they're going to win as a lower seed, the nuggets are doing what they're doing, the grizzlies is you just mentioned. And a lot of people are a lot of people just kind of assume that some of these teams are going to be taking aim at the kings. I don't know if anybody's realistically going to tank their way into a spot to gun for anybody because I think that the standings are just too close, but what being topsy turvy for basically everybody at this point, I do think that that bodes well for a team like Phoenix. So I answered Phoenix and I don't need to repeat it. You just summed it up very well. Kevin pelton said, if it's chaos and you're asking me to make a pick now, I'm just going with the team that has the best record in home court advantage. So he went with Denver. And I spent some time with the kings, the kings were in New York last week. I can tell you this. If teams are aiming for the kings, the kings the kings right now to a man, coach's players, probably the mascot, whoever pushes the beam, Vivek Rana diva, who I was able to say hello to in the corridor, and I wonder if he knows how much fun I've made of him over the years, probably does. They're all all of them. Their reaction is bring it. You wanna bring it. We're number two in the west, we're not scared of anybody. We're healthy, we see all of you wobbling in uncertainty. We have faith in the way we play our defense. It's not great. We think it's probably a little better than the numbers. That's what they'll tell you. Like, because teams have been hot from mid range from three, all season. But yeah, you know, we're not a great defensive team. They're offense. I have a piece coming out on the kings tomorrow. They're offense is a bear. It's just one in the league by a lot. And they love this idea that all things are going to slow down on the playoffs, you know, they won't be able to get out in transition. And they love it. They're like, wait until you see us in a playoffs. We might even play faster. I so I'm right there with you on that from that standpoint just because I spent some time with them last month. And I just had a piece come out on them last week, I think for the magazine. And it's so interesting because, you know, when you report out these longer pieces and I don't know that the average reader knows this, a lot of times it comes together over a week over two weeks. In my case, even though my story is up, I think it's just now coming out in the magazine. But I went to Sacramento. You went to Sacramento. I went there for one of these back to back so you were talking about to try to get multiple players and Mike Brown and Monty mcnair one on one and it's so interesting because now it feels like it was such a long time ago. I talked to them right before the all star break. And talking to Monte mcnair, I ended up deciding really not to play up some of his quotes from the story, but I essentially asked him because I could hear how adamant he was at the time where if you go back and look, the kings had a record that, you know, yes, they would have been favored to make the playoffs at the all star break, but it wasn't like a completely completely completely foregone conclusion that they would. When sabonis broke his thumb, which is sort of the flashbulb moment of their season, they were 17 and 14. Like they were, they were solid, but like you said, a two game losing streak from being tenth. And I was pushing my editors to let me go rest story about the kings in November because I think a lot of us thought this is a really fun, cute story, a team that hasn't won it a while a fan base is electric because of that. But let me go write this story now before it's not necessarily this big fuzzy feel good story anymore when they start losing. And obviously they kept winning, sabonis kept playing, but in talking to Monty mcnair right before the all star break, I asked him a question of I hear so much emphasis on playoffs and I get it because it's been 16 years, but how do you transition from

"More probably trying to have a two man game, but just being too close together. And so, but I'm really intrigued by what I've seen the first few games. I don't know how you couldn't be in light of just how dominant they've been offensively. Yeah, more Tim Hardaway junior and more maxi when he comes back will mean less the opens and less Jaden hardy and that's probably good for the maverick solitude and hardy has had his moments. This year. There's been a lot of Jane hardy, but I do enjoy watching him when he's on fire. Yeah, I mean, the west is just loaded, man. I know there are one two. They lost both these games. Offensively, they're just, you're not going to stop them. You're just going to hope they have a bad shooting night and you score like gangbusters on them and they've been a bad defensive team all year after being a good one last year. And like you said, they barely scratched the surface of playing together. They're not really playing together in a cooperative sense, just them being out there together is obviously enormously powerful on its own. I looked it up on second spectrum this morning. They've only won three pick and rolls between them total in two games. Wow. And I think, and one of them, Luca got a switch and barreled over Terrence Davis ferry and one. And I think that play has to become a powerful tool in their toolbox against the best teams who are going to take away lots of the stuff and all those teams will put wing defenders on both of them so you can switch it, but switching is easier said than done on Lucca. He's so powerful. And we've seen things like kairi's into corner a lot when Luca has the ball up top. They ran a couple sets last night where Kyrie will come off a screen like fly up from the corner, catch the ball coming off the screen on the wing, curl into the middle, draw the defense kick to Lucca for a spot up three or a drive. Like we're going to see more of that. And I just think offensively it's going to be and you've seen Kyrie already get them moving, which is what I was most excited about is like, you don't have to walk the ball up the floor every single time in Kyrie. Likes to throw hit ahead passes, likes to get zooming up the floor and just sort of see what happens. See what chaos I can cause. See how many people follow me into the paint and who's opened in my wake? I think offensively there are going to be unstoppable. There are issues are going to be defense. They miss Finney Smith a lot. There's just a lot on Josh green and Reggie Bullock's play right now. In depth and just but those are high class problems and there are other high class problems that the west is awesome. The top of the west is awesome and some teams that really have title ambitions are going to lose in the first round. Yeah, I mean, there's one other team, I think, probably on my list of stuff I want to talk about that, you know, the depth is an issue you obviously, if you've got these sorts of problems that Dallas has at this point, they're privileged sorts of problems that you are banking on the idea that your starters are going to be playing 40 minutes during the playoffs anyway. And again, if we're talking about this sort of efficiency that they've had so far with these two on the court, which it won't always be that, it'll come down. At some point, I think, you know, you would live with those issues and hope that these guys could just play 42 minutes in a plan. I think Kyrie and Luca together, those lineups should score at a rate that would lead to the league among all teams. Like that's how good the should be. It should be, it should be as good as the best offense in the league and maybe better. It's everything else. That will be a question. Okay, yeah, so the gimmick for this podcast was let's pick our 5. I just made it up 5 most interesting players or teams for the last part of the season with sort of an ion, they all got more interesting in the wake of the trade deadline because their teams did X, Y, and Z, so I will see the floor to you, Chris hearing. We already talked about Deandre ayton. So pick somebody else or some other team off your list and let's go. Yeah, okay. Well, why don't we start here since it's kind of, it's analogous. We just mentioned his name in the last segment. Josh green is a guy. And I have one other guy that I think is a lot like Josh greener. Maybe not a lot like him, but has some similarities to it. So I don't know. It's a good teacher. If throwing both of them out would be too much at once because we've already talked about 8 as well. Is he also named Josh? No, but he does have a color to his name, so we could do that. Bruce Brown is a Bruce Brown? No, now I feel like we're okay, we're off to over off the rails. Talk about Josh. We're completely off the rails. What's the name of that Tarantino movie with the mister white mister pink? Oh my God. Come on. Reservoir numbers. Okay. Well, I was thinking about that in light of this because the character that I was going to talk about, the player I was going to talk about has one of those names. But anyway, Josh green is someone that has just been playing lights out lately. He had his first not great game yesterday, actually. But he's just been on a heater basically for a while now. It's someone that, you know, is not going to come in really to the conversation

We're in for a Tumultuous January...

"You're watching this market I suspect we're in for a tumultuous time, a difficult January already we're off to a rough start and what we're seeing there on Capitol Hill does not help. I mean, it's a little bit of a red herring and that they'll figure it out eventually and I don't think that the economy is going to collapse because of it. So you have to take these things in stride and know that while it doesn't look good for Republicans and it certainly doesn't make us look good on the world stage, it's not going to totally collapse these markets. What will collapse these markets are bad policies, which we've had many, and will continue to have more of. You heard me talking in just yesterday's program about gold in the potential for $3000 an ounce which one analyst over at a Danish bank is predicting, and while it's totally far fetched in many ways, the concept isn't in that you are starting to see a lot of nations around the country retreat away from dollar backed assets and obviously they can't go to crypto. So where are they going to go? They're going to go to those safe havens, things like gold which tend to perform better in an inflationary environment. Now gold hasn't performed that well, in part because you've got central banks around the world raising rates, the thinking is, oh, you raise rates, that's going to contain inflation until oops, you realize it's not containing inflation and it's not going to contain inflation if we really wanted to contain inflation. You know what we'd be doing with Paul Volcker did back in the early 1980s because apples to apples, we can talk more about it in tomorrow's program, but apples to apples, you're looking at a very similar situation, inflation wise of what we had in the early 80s, and it took a lot more than these small interest rate hikes that were getting right now to get that under control. So

"Aren't sleeping on the bucks to everyone knows how good there is. No one's talking about the bucks. And no one is really saying like, are we just overthinking this? Or are they maybe the best team in the NBA? I think it's very similar to the sun thing. I think that we have a tendency like anybody does. Fans, media, we tend to look at the shiny thing that just got added somewhere else. So the week, the day that the brogden thing happened with Boston, it was like, what? They just added him on top of what they just did and almost won a title with, and we've watched the bucks more or less stand in place. Now, the angles thing was interesting, but like you said, a guy that can't play right off the bat. So it's like that it kind of gets muted because of something like that. The sons essentially are just running it back, more or less. Now, that was a surprise from what we thought would happen. We all figured 8 would end up somewhere else. Monty Williams comments after that game 7, we absolutely thought that ayton had the potential to land somewhere else. And he's back. So I just tend to think that teams that are static and the bulls are another team that added a couple guys, but nothing, real, real big, they didn't have the capacity to add anything really, really big. I think when teams stay still with the roster for the most part, with the key parts of their roster, they're going to get talked about a little bit less. And but no, I think the bucks have as good an argument, maybe a better argument than anybody that they'll come out of this thing the champions. At the end of the season. So I'm really excited about it. I'm excited to watch their offense because I think they're not going to be experimental or radical, but I'm interested to see how they attack switches because I know they left the Boston series thinking like they kind of defanged us a little bit offensively by switching. I'm interested to see their defense, you know, the last time we saw it, they were doing the thing where brook Lopez is just in the paint and letting grant Williams take a million. Is that how they're going to 8 of 17 in that case? This is going to be a great team. And I think this is why the league is going to be great this year. Milwaukee, Boston, Phillies certainly got the upside, talent wise, to be in that conversation. And clip a clippers are just, it's like, it seems like they have 25 good wings on their team. The nuggets, the warriors just won the title and they're going to be better this season. The warriors will be better this season than they were last season when they won the title. They should be anyway with the depth they picked up with Klay Thompson a year a year in now year two coming back from those injuries. And the other teams in the west that we kind of hinted at the Memphis is the Mavs and on and on and on, let alone if the Lakers figure. You mentioned the nuggets. I should have, because I love the nuggets. Yeah. I think it could be a special season.

"Around not that interested in talking about, but he's on the list. I have two segments of my list. One segment is tank team, guys. Guys who should be available, right? Like, no, just like guys, that's where you gotta start. That's why boyan Bogdanovich is high on my list. Teams that are just not interested in winning this year and have a player who fits snugly in that four spot, whatever. Then I have a list of goes wrong. So guys who are on teams with high ambitions where if you get to the trade deadline, someone's injured, something goes hey, why or whatever, I'm making a call. John Collins is high on that list. I don't think a lot of people would mention him because of the 8 and thing, oh, John Collins, he's a screen and dive guy, well, but I think for some players, you're overthinking that 8 and fit because their talent is their talent. He's on my list, Chris hearing. I thought I would be all sneaky with John Collins. Let's be very clear. Not happening right now. The hawks are not trading John Collins. John Collins is Brooke Lopez two. He's never gonna get traded by the hawks apparently. He's always gonna be on the hawks despite being in trade rumors all the time, like brook Lopez on the nets. So let's be clear hawks fans not suggesting it. I'm just saying, if we get 40 games into the season and it's not going right and there's a godfather offer on the table. Chris herring, I like where I like where your head's at. He makes a lot of sense for exactly those reasons we're laying out. You mentioned boyan, who I think makes a lot of sense for a lot of teams. So I won't belabor that, but obviously someone that can get to the basket, someone that can handle the ball a little bit, obviously you don't want him handling it as much as you remember a couple of years ago when the pacers were missing everybody and all the deep one everyone and he had to handle the ball like primarily. You don't ever want that, especially now there's a little bit older, but someone that could give you more 3.2 could give you more spacing and handle the ball when needed. He would make sense. The other guy I have and I don't even know that they would put him up, but I do wonder like they do have a glut of guys on this team now and they've got a lot of young players that all are promising Wendell Carter junior is a name and I don't think that that's one that would pry free after he had a really, really nice season, but man, like I would like to have him. If I'm a team like the suns and defensively, I would wonder a little bit like, can you play him a whole lot next to ayton Crowder is unusual in that way where he can defend a lot of versatile threes and smaller fours and stuff like that. Wendell Carter is not someone that I would want to have on small forwards a whole lot. But man, he added something to his game last year. He was finally healthy to some extent last year. He stretched out his perimeter game a little bit. He's a pretty good passer, although I think sometimes he's kind of been theorized as like a much better person than what he is. And I kind of feel like you saw hints of what he could be last year and if you're putting him on a good team where he doesn't have to do all that much. He could probably shine even a little bit more. So he's just an interesting name to me. I kind of start with those three boyan is another one that I had kind of on my list a little bit. But I was kind of most intrigued by the three I laid out. Wendell Carter is actually a little too center ish for me in terms of his offensive game. That makes sense. He's not on my list. And to be clear, in a lot of these trades, I mean Crowder plus Sarge is the package or shamit plus Sarge, but a lot of them, I think Crowder would have to be involved. I don't think cam Johnson, the sons don't want to trade cam Johnson, obviously that would change depending on the player involved, but you also have to start thinking like, is this guy an upgrade over Crowder? Who's pretty good? I like winning follows J Crowder. J car is a good tough player to kind of player every team needs. And if he is traded, culture fits too. If he is ever traded, I bet he's going to find his way to another winning team and be a big minute player on that team. Boyan and Collins are on my list in different segments of the list. I got somewhat wild with my trade ideas. So a lot of the guys on the tank teams that should be available are all guards. And I just don't think it fits. So like you're Gary Harris Terrence Ross Alec Burks, the Utah guards. Even Eric Gordon, who the sons have been linked to a lot over the years at a sort of smaller price than we're talking about. It's fine. He helps you. He's a bulldog. He's got experience guarding up a position defensively he's tough. He's a little fire hydrant. You know, eh, it's kind of standing in place. A lot of other names on my list are kind of standing in place list. Like what I call about Josh Hart, if the blazer season goes, haywire, sure, but is that changing my life? Brandon Clark changing my life with the grizzly season, goes haywire. He's Kelvin Johnson changing my life as the power forward on a tank team. He is poison pill, but that's the name I kind of like because he's young, he's got upside. So changing my life maybe, maybe not, I don't know. Kyle Kuzma, changing my life. Kyle Kuzma had a really good year last year for the wizards. He did. It's a name I would look at a little bit if I were Phoenix. I'd never be interested in dort who can probably play the four. Luke and Stuart could probably defend the 6. If there were a 6, he could defend the 6. He's that tough and strong. Is that changing my life though? How much is his contract for because I remember I just remember the total number on it was meant to 1566. It was a big contract. Yeah, so my answer to those is all just kind of feels like running a place a little bit. Which brings me back to although the Kuzma when I kind of like, Julius Randle, too much money, no, it's a no for me if I'm Phoenix. It's a no. Too much money, too many questions about the jump shooting. Which brings me back to the names I've mentioned plus, Jeremy grant, if again, if, if, if the Portland season goes haywire, Harrison Barnes, always. Perfect fit, don't know what the king's appetite to trade him is. If crowders coming back to the kings, maybe they just say, well, you know, we like that if we're getting draft equity, we feel like Jay Crowder is almost as good as Harrison Barnes in our mind, so now Harrison Barnes is way better shooter. Like that name. I'll tell you, this makes no sense.

"That is what I mentioned before about Lonzo and their ability to play multiple styles. Styles that suit styles that suit both Levine and Derozan separately. And we also saw when they were healthy, which was rare, I think Billy Donovan wanted to stagger them somewhat extremely so that Derozan goes out, Levine and vucevic stay in together to carry the offense, then they go out into rows and either goes by himself or plays with Lonzo of Lonzo's healthy. I think we would see more of that when everyone's at full strength. You mentioned Kobe white, I would bet a good amount of money that if the bulls are decent this year, Kobe white plus the blazers pick they have, which is lottery protected in perpetuity is they're going to attach whatever minor salary you need. I think that's a very predictable sort of trade package by win now kind of trade package. Here's what the bulls are in danger of. Here's what's interesting to me. Vujovic is an expiring contract this year. They traded two first round picks, one of which already nailed now maybe the bulls wouldn't have nailed it if they had it, but maybe they would have. Franz Wagner. Window krones Wagner with fit most teams. Franz Wagner would fit everywhere from the local Y to the current Orlando Magic or Golden State Warriors. Not super talented, really good. And by the way, forgotten name in that trade, Wendell Carter junior, who had a fantastic season last year for Orlando and was frankly better than vucevic not is not as sort of versatile and opening the floor offensively and all that. But like all around, I thought he was better. So vucci is on an expiring contract. Derozan has two years left on his contract. He's eligible for an extension after this coming season. Both of them are going to be on the wrong age of 30 or whatever when those markers are up, there is a reality in which if vucevic has another substandard shooting here, and he shot well from two in fairness, he never gets to the line, you know, you know the weaknesses with him. That they decide, we're just maybe we're just better off not being in the vucevic business. There's a universe in which Derozan is not on the team in two years or paid too much to be on the team. But let's take the version where he's not on the team they've traded him. They've often whatever. In that case, you've gone not quite all in, but like half in or waste level in for this little itty bitty window of Derozan vujovic Levine and then that window is gone and I have to pivot to a new team that's like Levine pat Williams, whatever, and I kind of sacrificed a lot for a small window of time. That worries me a little bit. And one of those windows of time is gone. That's last season. Another one this season, they just have a lot of questions. I think they're going to be solid, but, you know, you look at the east, the top four is the top four. Now somebody will get hurt, something will change, but Miami, whenever word you want, Boston, Milwaukee, Miami, Philly. I think Toronto is a really solid team that's just gonna get better. Atlanta clearly is under a lot of pressure to win, but we could go on and on. There's no guarantee that a good bulls team in a reasonably healthy bulls team is in the top 6 next year. I'm in and this was largely the case last year and in fairness to you, we did your pod last year right before the season started. We kind of did which team or the teams we think people are too low on too high on. Like you said, I picked the bulls that I thought people were too low on. You said that you thought maybe people were a little bit too high on them or that you were curious to see what happened and you went out and said, you went on a limb and said, look, I like what they did. I don't love it. I feel like they've invested a little bit too much. And I think you said I'd be surprised if this core, if this iteration of this team wins more than maybe two playoffs. I think I said right now, would you pick, would you pick this team to ever win more than one playoff series in a particular season during this window? And I said, I would probably lean no. Yeah, and it's still a fair question. I think the question about where they stack up in the east is always going to be there. Last year was maybe a good signal that you just go for it. And you take into account that other teams are going to have injuries, you take into account that the sky is falling, maybe in Brooklyn that a team like Atlanta maybe gets a little bit high on itself or kind of bumbles a little bit. They take a step back. And all of a sudden you look up, you had a good player already in Levine. You added real talent and Lonzo. You have booch who, like you said, had clearly a down season. And you added Derozan and Caruso. You added some really nice roll guys. And let's be clear. The Caruso contract is amazing. He's a really good player. I know he's contract. Levine, I'm a believer in him offensively. He's made such gigantic leaps as a score and a shooter. Now, defensively, it's still not there. And to me, the jury is out on whether they can build a top ten defense or top 15 defense if they're gonna play Derozan Levine and vujovic a lot, it looked like they had a pathway there last year. Let's see what happens this year. Right. So those questions are still there. Like I said, I understand that the fans are going to be frustrated because this fits a pattern of the bulls not showing much willingness to spend when they're kind of at that crossroads of like what's next. They could have and you can make the argument that maybe they should have to kind of be in that conversation with the top 5 teams in the east or so.

"So you want to say, you know, we really barely know this team. We're sitting here bringing our hands. We barely saw the team that they envisioned and to their credit when they had Lonzo, I did think, you know, the question everyone had was, how are they going to mesh this speedball group that they have with this super old school slow ball group of Derozan and vucevic? And the answer was the meshing was it messed beautifully. They played. They played with a pace and an oomph when Lonzo and Levine were on the floor Lonzo might be the best hit ahead passer in the entire NBA Levine might still be the best dunker in the entire NBA when he has space to do it. And they sped to Rosen up Derozan met them at their pace and if they couldn't get anything in transition, which was their trailing as the hub, the jump shooting big handoff big, it worked beautifully and what it did was it gave them multiple identities on offense even when the same lineup within like a lineup. It's the same lineup could play offense three and four different ways. And when they were rolling, I remember being courtside at a Lakers bulls game and press row in LA and the Lakers and the bulls just destroyed them. Lonzo had 7 threes, I think. And the Lakers looked so old and so slow and the bulls looked like they had jet packs on their backs and shoes with extra leaping ability built into them. It was just a totally different species of team almost. And that's how they looked when they were good. On the flip side, Chris herring, how many all star games is Lonzo Ball made? None. Levine Derozan and vucevic were built up as these, this is our big three. These are our three all stars. All of them have been all stars. Two of them were all stars last year. Those guys played the entire season more or less. With those three guys on the court, in 1200 something minutes, the bulls were -7. At some point, I can't attach, I don't think I can attach that much importance to Lonzo Ball. I just don't. If those three, if Anthony Edwards Carl Anthony towns and Rudy Gobert are minus ten in a thousand minutes next year, it's gonna be a problem and one that we can't pin on like, you know, whoever the 7th guy on the team is not that Lonzo is the 7th guy. That's why I'm kind of torn here and why I think it feels like after that hot start, the east has kind of passed the bulls by, but then you look at how they play with Lonzo. You're like, maybe they do owe it to themselves to kind of see what this team is. I don't know, but I'm not optimistic. Yeah, I mean, you hit the nail on the head with some of it just as far as how good they were when they played fast. And obviously Lonzo is a big driver that the biggest driver that for them. Man, their offense looks stuck in the mud. And I want to say, didn't Levine end up in health and safety protocols during the playoffs. This game even still or something. He and Caruso both missed the last game against Milwaukee. The end of that series. So just became, you know, it looked like Derozan was trying to play one on 5. At times, which is not going to work. And you know, frankly, I think maybe there's a little bit more upside than maybe what we've pointed out. Yeah, I should say, I should say, I said I'm not optimistic. And I want to your point, I want to just almost correct myself. I think how they played with Lonzo was at least semi real. I think that was a real thing. I remain, as I said before, perhaps I am seduced by the outline of what he is, I'm still in on Patrick Williams. And I think he becomes one of the most important players in the NBA now. So if he hits and he hits this year and year three, not hits like he's gonna reach his peak, but if there's a leap that happens because he finally plays, I do think this is a good team. My optimism ends at the word good. And that's optimism if there are setbacks, then it's a totally different so that's where I'm at. That feels fair. And I mean, looking at Williams specifically, because my best friend, and I'm sure he'll listen to this later, he'd be like, why'd you put me out? Spike Lee? No. My best friend, his name is Marcus, I've known him since I was 5, and he made it known. And I think I was watching either game four, I think it must have been game for it as House. Of the buck series with the bulls. And he was like, I'm out on Patrick Williams. Trade them. Blah, blah, blah, blah. I was like, Marcus, he's like 20. And I want to say one of those games in the series. He was very quiet for most of the series, but I think he had like a 20 and 11 game or something and that's the bucks. He hit a couple of threes. And you look at his numbers aside from just how he looks, which physically he more than looks the part. He's 20. He's playing with a bunch of not a bunch, but two ball dominant players, so there aren't a whole lot of opportunities throughout the game. He missed most of last season. And oh, by the way, for his career, he's only shot 41% from three. By the way, is a guy that rate use of oh, by the way. Anytime you can work an oh, by the way, into a sports discussion, you have to do it. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, he's only a 41% shooter, you know, at his size at his position, which is not like a common thing at his age. In his age, even if he was 25, that's not just a given that that position like he. So I asked my friend, what do you mean when you give up on him? Have you given up on Kobe white? Because to me, that's who I would be trying to include in deals if I had to make something happen. It would also be less attractive to other teams for exactly the reason we're talking about, but he was like, I just feel like I don't see the dog in him like he's not going to go like you look at someone like Maxie, who obviously had a breakout year last year and he's like, you just see him going to go get it. There's an aggression. He's playing alongside a couple of star players too, but he's not waiting on anything to happen. He's going to make something happen. Patrick Williams kind of has more of these more tentative. He's not going to do that. I was like, he didn't play last year. I don't expect to see him just put the ball on the floor and dominate guys this year, but I do think and I said this on our podcast open floor at Sports Illustrated. I could absolutely see him in the most improved conversation. And if that's the case, the bulls have upside. And I think even if it's not the case, having him available is some upside. I think Levine being a little bit healthier would be upside. And I would hope if I'm the bulls, Levine looking more comfortable, like he looked a little bit I'd be interested on your take on this. There were times where it looked like he forced Derozan rarely looks like he's forcing much. He's obviously a very smooth player, he's not everyone's preference because he doesn't shoot from three much and he's not a great three point shooter, but he gets to a spot. He doesn't look like he's forcing much. Levine, on the other hand, maybe playing with someone who controls the ball as much as he does or even more than he does sometimes. Seem like it made him a little bit uncomfortable and kind of made it look like your turn, my turn, where he's forcing shot sometimes. And I kind of wonder if there's more comfort to be had in the second year with Derozan and if there is what that looks like and if there's less forcing and if they're offense maybe is more cohesive and less forced sometimes because maybe Levine develops more of a comfort this year. He's been in the league a while, so that's not fair to necessarily put all that on that. But I felt like I saw a lot of that last year for me. I think part of that is what I mentioned before about Lonzo and their ability to play multiple styles. Styles that suit styles that suit both Levine and Derozan separately. And we also saw when they were healthy, which was rare, I think Billy Donovan wanted to stagger them somewhat extremely so that Derozan goes out,

"It's clear the fit isn't working. You and I talked a lot last year about all things Lakers. And one of the stats I monitored all year long was what are their numbers look like when Russ LeBron and AD are on the floor without a center, which we all agreed was if they're going to have hope. That's the lineup. If they're going to play high stakes playoff games, that's the lineup. AD at the 5 Russ LeBron two three ND guys or whatever they had that could be affect similarly of a three ND guy. A 3D printout of a three and D guy. 40 games into the season, those numbers were pretty good in a small sample size. By the end of the season, they were negative just like everything else. And to your point, you've talked a lot about what darvin ham has said about Russ about redirecting Russ's game and we're all in on Russ's a defender. We've all talked about this a million times. Redirecting Russ's game means cut off the ball, shoot corner threes, he shot 44% on corner threes, 23 out of 51 doesn't want to take them. Screen for LeBron. And you could tell they had a team meeting about rust screening for LeBron before the second game of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies. Screed 8 times for LeBron in that game. It worked pretty well. The whole idea was let's take our worst shooter, screen for the maybe the best player of all time, become draymond green roll past all that. After that game, here were the number of ball screens rust set in the 6 subsequent games. This is from second spectrum. One, one, one, one, one, and one. He did not set more than two in a basketball game in which the professional Los Angeles Lakers were involved until March, he didn't set more than four in any other game in the entire season. If there were and if there were ever a statistic that showed a cognitive dissonance between a player and his coaching staff, a player and this vision that now darvin him is outlining for him, that's the stat. And look, I'm not sitting here, it's easy for me to say all this about Russ, Russ is an MVP. He's averaged a triple double four times. He has been among the very best in the entire world, the history of the entire world with the ball in his hands. He doesn't want to play another way, and I don't really blame him for not wanting to play another way, but the way he plays has aid deteriorated because he can't dribble the ball without turning it over anymore, at least four or 5 times a game. And his jump shot has stagnated or gotten worse. So a, he's deteriorated in B, it doesn't fit on this team. So I just don't know where to go, except to say this. I keep hearing about 2027 and 2029 first round picks. I understand the hesitancy about flipping both of them to get off rush and get Kyrie. And I don't know what they've offered. I don't know that the nets have really gotten serious with them. I don't know what's, I don't know the specifics because guess what? Very few people actually know the specifics and the people who say they do are often being a little bit lied to. If they haven't offered one of those picks, unprotected or top three protection or some minimal protection along with rust to get Kyrie to me that's dereliction of duty. You have to offer one. I understand haggling over the second one and being like, we're compromising our whole future. Kyrie is such an upgrade fit wise over Russ, that if they're not offering one of those bad boys and I just don't even know what we're doing here. Yeah, and honestly, I wish I could tell you like, hey, Sean marks told me that they offered one and they had so many protections on it. It wasn't even no. I don't know that answer. What I do know is that there have been talks and the Lakers stance was that the nets were not prepared to really put the axe to the root and figure something out because the Katie domino had to be the first one to fall. And quite frankly, that could be posture on the Lakers part. That could be the Lakers presenting their offer as, well, it really wasn't us. It was the nets are just aren't in that place. Someone with deeper net sourcing might sell you otherwise. Maybe the net stance is that the Lakers have an offer that. I don't know either way. But ultimately, if it comes down to a negotiation where you want your final offer to be the strongest, it should be an easy call at the end of the day to say, we're going to give you your choice of one of those two picks, unprotected, let's wash our hands a bit, call a day, you get a pick for the future, we get an asset now. You have an honor worth $9 billion who can stomach, figuring out a buyout with Russell Westbrook, wearing a mom and pop shop. Our ownership won't do that. And let's move forward here. To me, that would be a reasonable resolution, but oftentimes the NBA is not reasonable. Well, look, and I believe me, I have been plenty critical of Kyrie, I can hear everyone saying, give up a first round pick for a dude that never plays? For an unreliable participant, why would they do that? I get it. My only answer is because the status quo wasn't going to work. The unreliable participants unreliability last season was based on a a vaccine mandate that is gone and B an expectation that he was going to get a long-term contract no matter what. Also gone. And so I have at least some belief given his prior experience with LeBron James before he asks out of the LeBron James experience and God his way to Boston and then as out of there and blah blah blah. I at least have some hope that I can get him to play 60 games and end the playoffs and the Fitbit those three guys is good enough. Did I at least have a shot? Right now I got basically no shot. And that's my only argument. I've sat here, Dave and I tried to figure out their rotation and their starting 5. And I just stopped caring. Like I said, look at the sheet of paper. It says, RW for Russell Westbrook, question mark, LeBron AD, Thomas Bryant, then I have one where they start small and they start AD at center and as two question marks. And then I just can't care. If he comes to let me ask you this, if Russ comes to camp, do you think there's a world in which they just bring him off the bench and start Kendrick nunn or something like that? Is he gonna like what's gonna happen if they even tried to do that? Because I can see them thinking reasonably, we'll start a placeholder point guard who can shoot threes. That allows us to start a traditional center since we don't have a non shooting point guard on the floor in AD doesn't want to play center.

"But you figured he was going to be a factor in the series because in a series where Boston is trying to do everything right, they're playing the game of defensive minds we were trying to make sure they don't get blown up by Steph and leaving too much space with him. Obviously you're concerned about that after giving up 43 to the guy. So you're going to be looking up along the arc the whole time. It's going to invite guys like clay and Gary Payton to go back door, which is what they love doing anyway. And so Peyton knowing that Peyton getting out transition, Peyton being the difference maker that he is on defense was just massive in this game. And like you said, with those two and the sort of game they had, when you get 8 out of draymond and when you're getting 15 out of Gary Payton, you get 23 points between those two guys. You can better absorb an off game and off night from Steph, not to even mention Wiggins taking over, not just scoring what he did because this was on some level statistically at least from a scoring standpoint. This was like a Wiggins game in Minnesota. It's okay to have 26 on 23 when you're playing alongside Steph against this sort of defense. Instead he was getting the points and tough ways in possessions where they had nothing else going. And he's just making something happen. It was just a massive game from a number of guys. And like I said, literally the first couple of possessions of this game were draymond is playing aggressively and then on the flip side, Boston turning it over on literally their first possession. All the struggles Boston had from the free throw line, which really hurts. Oh, 21 of 31. Tatum had an O four two at a big, big time. Sometimes they just feel bigger. Tatum's over to felt bigger..

"Big dream on game. You need them to score three or four baskets. That's literally all you need. And guess what he did yesterday? I think he had three baskets. He had the 8 points, but he did it to start the game at a time where loony was out. You know, when Looney would come out early, he just set the tone very quickly. Steph didn't touch the ball for the first couple of possessions. And so really the tone was set immediately in this game by draymond coming out the way he did. And Wiggins coming out the way he did, you saw very early what the tone was going to be Steph didn't have to be a massive part of everything this time. Obviously he's still getting guys open. He's still making it. I was going to say he's always a massive part of everything. And I don't seem like he's a massive support of everything going back to what Boston's defense is so the thing about this series, it doesn't, it's the best kind of ugly pretty. These defenses are so good that the opposing offense has to work so, so hard to get any kind of open look, even like just an okay open look. Like Klay Thompson, the two threes Klay Thompson hit late in the third quarter, to me might have been the two biggest shots of the game. Boston was up 5 when he hit the first one and four when he hit the second one. One of them was against great defense, grant Williams just kind of stumbled a little bit, switching on to clay, got back up to like that's all it takes, but my point that I was making was these offenses, all the easy stuff is gone. They have to work so hard to open up a mediocre look to the point when about Steph's involvement and everything. When one of those split actions finally works when the Celtics mess it up a little bit and Wiggins gets kind of like a rampaging high flying layup with about 7 and a half to go in the fourth quarter. You have this revelation like, oh yeah, that's what the warriors look like against almost everybody else. We haven't seen that in this series because the Celtics defense is so good and so is the warriors and about draymond, I thought his defense at the rim was outstanding all game long and one of the traps the Celtics fell in in the first quarter. I can remember a Derek white drive that comes to mind when the warriors hedged a Derek white screen and he slipped and drove. I can remember a Tatum drive in the fourth quarter. One of the mistakes they made, I thought, was trying draymond green at the rim when he was ready early. Instead of making the easy kick out pass to an open shooter in the corner, white had smart, I think on the left corner and Tatum had Brown in the right corner and if draymond's ready, those are really tough finishes and he's gonna knock him out of the air or just be vertical. I thought his defense was outstanding and on loony, let's take a second. The two unsung heroes of this series for the warriors and they ain't, they're not gonna be unsung much longer. Kevon Looney is plus 48 for the series. In a 108 minutes, they're like a point every two minutes, Kavanaugh Looney is on the floor. Here's an interesting stat, mister herring. With draymond green on the floor, kavan Luna and draymond green are plus 25 together. That's starting line up the old starting lineup has been the warrior's best lineup all series long. Kavanaugh Looney with draymond green on the bench? So just what Looney is the only big man? The warriors are plus 23 in 50 minutes. That was the lineup that kind of closed the game for for them when they benched draymond before they brought him back in. The opposite kind of minutes, the draymond at center minutes, the minutes we associate with Golden State's dominance, -21 draymond without loony in a 117 minutes. Loony has been fantastic on defense to the Celtics are bringing him out to the perimeter on purpose. They're saying, even if it's not, you saw it over and over again. We're not necessarily attacking you. We're going to bring you out to the perimeter with our first action just to get you out of the way and then we'll go into our second action so you're up at the perimeter and then the lanes a little bit more open when they do attack him on the perimeter, he's held up all right, he even poked the ball away from Tatum and out of bounds. At some point and the other unsung hero, Gary Payton the second the dude broke his elbow in the second round of the playoffs, broke his elbow, helped swing game two of this series in 25 minutes. Played 20 minutes combined in games three and four. And as Steve Kerr's plug and holes trying to figure it out, can I get Peyton and Wiggins on the floor at the same time so that draymond can spend more time around the rim on defense so that those two guys can guard the J's. 6 of 8 shooting, 15 points, three steals, including a clean pick of jaylen Brown in 26 minutes. The man was applying for a job as video coordinator for the Golden State Warriors. That's like a job I would apply to for the Golden State Warriors. He was applying for that job like 6 months ago, he broke his elbow a month ago. He was one of the unsung heroes. They don't win this game. They don't win game two. And if they win this series, they don't win the series without a dude who was applying for a video coordinator job hat tip to Malika Andrews for getting that out of him at a great sideline interview at practice the other day in Boston and broke his Chris, if I broke my elbow a month ago, I would be out of the neighborhood wiffle ball games for like four months. This dude's playing in the NBA Finals against Marcus smart, who's gonna knock you on your ass. It's just an incredible story. I wouldn't even, I would be DNP for podcasting even just, no, I'm not doing it. But yeah, and as you mentioned, draymond and as you mentioned, Peyton, I immediately think of, at least one, maybe there were two of them were draymond had a couple of pinpoint passes that he threw back door, including one to Payton that was just beautiful. It's the two of them at their best. You're really not expecting draymond to provide a lot of scoring. You're expecting him to see the floor well to take advantage of the four on threes, which that beautiful fake handoff he had for the Dunkin. When he gets to keep him, it's one of those things like, oh, the warriors usually look, they get that sometimes. Yes, yes. And him looking to be aggressive enough to make it work because I kind of feel like that's what Boston is relied on is draymond's not gonna shoot anywhere if he is, let him take it. But if he's that aggressive, there's really no answer if you're overplaying Steph. But Gary Payton, why it was so stunning that he didn't play in game one. Obviously, he was still probably recovering from the elbow and we all know that we all can look at that and tell that..

"Put portis back on the bench in a reserve role for game three, which frankly, one one, I was surprised they did that so fast and it was smart. And then Yanis just an absolute masterpiece. 42 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, and a couple of notes on that. They ran 13, I think drew Giannis pick and rolls with Yanis is the screener that was as many as they ran combined in the first two games. And Boston, you can tell, doesn't want to switch those and the bucks are getting good looks either holiday floaters, lobster Yanis, offensive rebounds because the Celtics are panicking about Giannis catching a lob and help. And then Giannis ran 18 pick and rolls as the ball handler, which was his most in the playoffs. And look, it's easy to say, you gotta get under those instead of switching into matchups that he wants and I do think Boston paradoxically did not switch those pick and rolls with Yanis as the screener and switch too many with him as the ball handler, but that's what great players do. They freak you out, the Celtics are afraid of going under it and giving him even an inch of a head start into the paint and he's just, he doesn't need big mismatches to eat like Jalen Brown. He just roasted Jalen Brown on switch's Tatum has no chance. Robert Williams says no chance. And as the series goes on, this is what would scare me for Boston and it scares me as someone who picked Boston in 6. You can see honest just getting more comfortable with each individual matchup and just doing what the best player in the series has to do, which is just carving his way to big numbers. And I said before the series of Milwaukee's gonna win without Middleton, he's gotta be by far the best player and he was by far the best player in game three. This game tonight and I don't wanna belabor this series 'cause they're playing tonight and they're playing first. This is the biggest game of the playoffs so far. Game four and Milwaukee. Now they'll get bigger after this, but if Milwaukee wins this game and goes up three one, it's hard to see Boston even with home court even with Middleton out getting three straight against Giannis. He's just gonna find another 42.15 rebound 9 of 12 at the line, which he was in game three. He's gonna get one more of those. I don't know if it's hard to say this is a must win for Boston, but it's pretty damn close on the road. And if they win, you know, obviously it's two too. They have home court back. I think either of these teams is favored over Philly slash Miami. This is the biggest game of the playoffs to date tonight. Agree or disagree. No, I'll give you that all day long. I don't think it's even that close. There are aspects of this that and I don't know if maybe you'd feel differently based on Billy hopping back into the series against Miami and obviously looking world's better with Joel embiid, which makes total sense. There are shades of this that feel a lot like the Brooklyn Milwaukee series last year where you felt really good about the fact that whoever wins this is going to come out of the conference despite the fact that it's the semifinal match up. And based on that, there's a really good chance that whoever we're looking at coming out of this might win the whole thing. And I mean, Milwaukee has certainly shown that they're up to the task, even with that Middleton there. Boston obviously has shown the ability to lock down defensively. At times, I think Giannis is a pretty singular sort of player and doing what he's been able to do let alone what maybe without his second best score. So I mean, there's a lot on the line here for both teams. Whoever loses this is going to feel like, man, like how unfortunate where we are unlucky where we to have this match up in the second round just because of how good this matchup is. But you have to feel really, really good if you're Milwaukee for having gotten that game. I think you needed to quite frankly, you know, for how much pressure is on Boston now if Milwaukee had lost that game where Tatum shoots that poorly, Rihanna does all that. When you got that sort of defensive performance out of drew and Wes Matthews and, you know, and that was at home for you. If you lose that game, I'll put it this way in talking with one of my editors. I was like, I'll write off this. And you had the big lead going into the end of the game too, that it took all that stuff happening. It took the huge free throw disadvantage to be in a position to potentially lose that game toward the end. Or maybe, you know, or at least have it tied at the very end. So I told my editor, I was kind of on weekend duty. We're like, if something really, really ridiculous happens in this game, I'll write off of it. And the ridiculous outcome for that game in my mind would have been if Milwaukee loses this after having had what, if they weren't double digits, it was very close to double digits. In the fourth, the fact that Giannis had went, what did you say it was 42, 13 and 8 or just a lot? A lot of a lot of points, a lot of rebounds a lot of assists. Jayson Tatum playing as poorly as he's played in years and a playoff setting..

"That would be the funniest possible outcome. I'm serious. Maybe I should start a campaign that the media voters should all vote Ben Simmons is an all star starter. I don't know that I'm gonna participate in that one. But in all seriousness with him, with Zion, I mean, Kawhi being out this year, I guess you always have some injuries, but it's difficult as this is every year. And also with guys like Lillard, who, as of right now, don't really look like they would be all stars or put themselves in position to be. Think about how much more brutal it becomes if Simmons is playing if Kawhi is playing a Zion is playing to make sure Kyrie, Chris? I forgot about him. He's coming back what tomorrow this week? He might for all I know he might win the fanboy. I mean, the guy is so crazy popular as a sneaker seller and people young people love Kyrie kids love Kyrie. Maybe Kyrie and cinnamon will both get voted in by the fans. Jeez. And then they'll rely on everyone else Trump and do the players still get to vote. I can't remember. I think they are part of the vote, aren't they? Either of them, it's coaches. I don't know. I can't keep up with any more than NBA changes. They change which positions and how you do the positions. It's all weird. I can't remember. What's your favorite all star Saturday event? You know what? And which one should they cut? It's the dunk contest by far, but what I've learned and I think I learned this last year, really, and I've kind of felt this way for a while, but I really learned it last year. The dunk contest is it's such a blessing to be able to go to the game and do it safely, obviously, when we can. But the dunk contest is a lot more fun to watch on television than it is in person. Because you can't really tell what you've seen for a lot of the best dunks in person. So I used to date someone that would always ask, who's like, I know you've got the All-Star Game stuff that you're at this week, but when she'd be installed me for the last second, she was like, can you stay home for that so we can watch it together so I can understand what I'm seeing. And I'm like, well, it's actually better because of the replays and everything. But that's the best contest to me. Look, I don't mind the skills competition. You always have the one guy that tries really hard to win and they try to not look like they're winning or trying that hard, but they are trying really hard. And then you got the other guys who kind of play it too cool. And I always feel like there's one guy that loses the contest because they're trying to play a little bit too cool. I could kind of do without it. But the dunk contest will always be a fan of. Let's be honest. The skills contest really comes down to passing through the tire or whatever they pass through. Right. And the three point shot at the end. Everything else is window dressing. Those are the two things that determine who wins and loses the skill. I don't know how they do it anymore, but I like the one year there were a bunch of big guys in it and I liked it when it was like big guys versus guards. I want that. And I want them to bring back the half court shooting one when they had the shooting stars contest with the WNBA guys too, WNBA players as well. I used to love that. That actually was always really fun. Yeah. All right, Chris herring, we've managed to pick almost full all star teams. What your book is now. People can people can order your book, correct? Oh, they can definitely order it. I've seen people posting pictures of it somehow they have them already in some cases, some bookstores have shifted out early. It comes out on the 18th, but like I said, some people are already getting it. I've seen other people say that somehow they're able to download it already and I don't know what who I need to put into a headlock at my publisher to ask how that's happening. But for people that have already ordered thank you so much and for people that are curious, please go order it. Me and you are going to do an event. I think it's going to be virtual now. On the 19th, I think, which should be a blast, but the strand bookstore in New York, but I've read thank you so much. I've got a dog eared, I've got an underlined. I'm ready to ask some hard hitting questions. If you were a fan of the NBA in the 90s or you just are a fan who wants to learn what the NBA was like in the 90s, this is going to be one of the definitive accounts of that era, the Knicks, as you have said, did not win a title, but they are an iconic team nonetheless the 90s nicks. The inside stuff you've got here is just incredible. I can't wait for our event on the 19th. People should buy this book, read it, they should just pay you in cash somehow. They should just Venmo you, the cash directly for the book. I want you to get all the money. Chris herring, your work at SI and on this book is second to none. Thank you for coming on and picking all start with me. Thanks, man. For having me on, and thank you for doing the movie. I can't wait..

"So fast. There is no stopping. There is no hesitation, and he's the best defense player in the NBA this year. So I don't really care about the scoring average. The warriors absolutely deserve minimum to all stars. He's the second one we agree. Okay. So we got that. So I think this is my last guy that I would consider a lock. I have two left. Okay, so I've got one guy left and let's maybe I cross somebody out by mistake, but my last lock for now is Karl Anthony towns. And I'm hoping that that's one of the ones you had left. It is. Okay. I mean, man, I don't think he's a guy that I think basically has been putting up like perennial all star numbers anyway. Now he's been an all star twice before, so obviously that suggested maybe it's not perennial all star. Or that he's not a perennial all star. But I feel like that the Timberwolves deserve a guy. I think that you actually could at least talk about a couple of people, but I think that he's been the most consistent of them. That he's been just kind of a beast, really, this year. That he's shooting a little bit better than he ever has from three. I don't know. I mean, I just think at a certain point, the hope for him was always that he was going to be able to do this year in and year out. But I just think that he's a guy that is going to play himself in that conversation. When you look at it positionally, I don't think that there are many guys at the position that are better than he is. I just think that in one case, it happens to be maybe the best player in the world. But offensively, I don't know that it gets much better than him. So he would be a pretty easy pick for me. I'm curious to hear who your other lock is here. Yeah, catch a no brainer. 25 points a game, 9 rebounds, would I like him to occasionally box out on defense? Yes, it would really help the Timberwolves if they were not rebounding team in the league and Karl Anthony towns as part of that. But 51% overall, 43% on threes that the volume he shoots, he's completely unstoppable in the post when he's not throwing one handed blindfolded overhead passes to the wrong person or out of bounds completely as double just an all time great offensive player. Defensively, he's just okay. But they've been pretty sound defensively all season with him on the floor and with a little better with him off the floor, but he's at least are they getting a little lucky, I think for a lot of the season they got lucky with opponent three point shooting, but it's hard to argue that he is torpedoing a bad defense or something like that. He's easily the best candidate on the wolves. And like you said, you could make a case for Edwards. I don't think it's particularly convincing. You could make a case for the angel of Russell. I don't really think that's particularly convincing. Towns is a no brainer. I'm telling you, I can't believe you don't have this next guy locked in. So this is probably more of a semantic thing. I'm almost offended actually. It's a semantics thing then. It's gonna be back to the if it's who I'm thinking you're gonna say it's basically the Tatum argument, but the Western Conference version, go ahead. Well, I hope you don't say it to this guy's face that you don't have him on your preliminary all star team because he's not gonna be happy and he's not gonna forget, but John morant has to be a Western Conference all star. Okay, he left, remember what I said I might have crossed somebody off by mistake because you and I said initially that we had the tech guy trying to save Facebook John Miranda crosses a month by mistake. I see you Chris herring. I have them on my Google Doc here listed as a starter with a question mark. So that makes me feel better because I thought you were talking about someone else. I had them on my list and I forgot that we hadn't discussed them. I had them listed as a starter preliminary. And by the way, just to be clear, my locked my order in which I have done these locks is not a ranking of Loch Ness. They're all locks. They're all in John morant has been incredible. Look, they missed 12 games. They went ten and two without him. We don't need to relitigate that they faced a lot of opponents who had huge guys injured their opponent outside shooting was insanely lucky. John Moran is not a good defensive player. I'll say, just like tray on. He's not an elite defense of player in this league. By the way, we need to ban the phrase in this league. Like, why do people punctuate everything that he can really he can really shoot in this league? He's a guy. We all know the league we're talking about. You don't need to say in this league. We're all talking about when you're broadcasting an NBA game. This guy can really defend in this week. Yeah, I know. We're watching it at a game. Anyway, John marantz and all star period end of story. That makes me feel better. I thought you were going to argue someone else that you were surprised I didn't have as a lock. But no morant absolutely was a lock. I mean, really, when I looked at it, he was the guy that after those first three stars, I actually had him listed as my fourth guy, like the guy that I would say after those three is maybe the guy that deserves the most. I got no problem with that. I'm taking Donovan Mitchell. That's kinda where I'm in. Buy a hair this year, but grant is, he's shooting 40% from three, Chris, like you would say, if you said that before this season that he was gonna do that, and we're talking about what the perceived weaknesses of his game are obviously defenses still one of them. But I mean, the shooting, if it's real, and if he can sustain that, maybe not for the season, but anywhere near that. I mean, good luck guarding that guy for the next 15 years. If he can stay healthy. He can get any shot he wants, he sees every single pass. He doesn't just see every single pass. He creates passes that only he is really envisioning because he'll take a dribble move or a hesitation dribble, or he'll even cut, give and go, all because he knows if I do this, the defense is gonna do X, Y, and Z, that guy's gonna be open. He is, I've said this before, and it's cliche and I don't care. Whatever it is, John morant has it. He has the it factor of NBA stardom. Guys want to play with him, guys like to play with them. He gets his teammates revved up. He has it, he's an all star. This is going to be the first of if you told me right now, John marantz gonna be a 12 time NBA all star at ten time NBA all star..

"Are in contention for three spots. Okay. You just mentioned the calves. I would order their respective candidacy this way. Jared Allen? Darius Garland. Evan mobley. Same way I have it. That's already up to three. That's it. We're now full if we take all three cats, which we're not, I'm only gonna take one cav in the end. Same. Both the Celtics, Tatum and brown, brown scored 50 last night, Tatum is not shot that well this season, but his scoring is obviously 25 games. So that's where that's 5 guys. Perennial all star domain sabonis that's 6. You want to include miles Turner to get fun, that's 7? No. No, you don't. LaMelo Ball. Chris Middleton? We're up to like ten guys already. All of whom are very good players. Kyle Lowry and if you want to talk about a team that maybe should get a look for a second all star? Yeah. Miami, we have not even named perennial all star and almost neck and neck scoring champion, Bradley Beal. I know. And what did he have yesterday 16 assists or two days ago? With all the injuries and virus stuff, John Collins and miles bridges got a token look for me. They're not going to make it. And then we mentioned him earlier, the advance number, the raw numbers are getting good now. The advanced numbers for Fred van vliet are outrageous and above all of these guys. So just think about all those names I just said because you're going to have a lot of fans that are angry. The three calves, Tatum, Brown, beel ball, Lowry, these are huge names, okay? We only can pick three of them. I'll tell you right now these are not final picture. I'm not writing this calling for two weeks. Right now on January 2nd in the year of our basketball God's 2022, my first two picks from this group for spots ten and 11 Chris herring would be. And I do this with respect and trepidation would be Fred van vliet and Jared Allen. What do you think? Well, Jared Allen was my next pick. Again, maybe I'm focusing too much on the standings. I'm not gonna argue against Ben bleep. I mean, another guy that for me has been a favorite for years who plays both ends of the floor who's been more efficient, you know, I think the knock on him for a couple of years now if you knock him at all for a guy that made the league the way he did has been the finishing, has also been that he was playing alongside another all star. And so maybe not getting as many opportunities are not to where he had to do it, the way he's doing it now, but on a team where it's been very up and down. Guys, in and out of the lineup, siakam's still kind of getting back into rhythm some nights looking really good sometimes looking bad. Not a bad pick at all a team that's been stronger. I remember when I podcast with you to start the season that was a team that I think a lot of people were kind of mixed on and yeah, if it's not for him and the way he's played, I think that's a very different looking team. And also they're starting to kind of hit a rhythm now and look a lot better. And a lot of that is because of him. So I'm not going to have many qualms with that. It's tough to leave certain guys off, but like you said with the other guy I was thinking about was Cole Anthony, just looking at him. I don't think he was realistically going to make the team. You can't mean you can not look he's not going to be on the team. Cole Anthony is on my long list of what I'm feeling real generous. He's been great this year. He made he was in my ten things column a couple weeks ago he's one of the best rebounding little guys ever. You can't make the all star team on a team trying to lose. You just you're out. You can't. I don't even know what their record is. It's like 6 and 30th. It's horrible. It's horrible. So I understand that average Wilt Chamberlain numbers to get in the conversation. The pistons, you don't get to look, no, no, no, you're out. No Cole Anthony. I'm sorry. I love philanthropy. You're not an all star. Again, long list, like you said. I can't believe he's thrown up cold. Are you just bringing up Cole Anthony just to add him to my late, he's not ahead of like these some of these things? He's not ahead of anybody on that list. He's the last person on my list, but my point is that it's a really tough one. I bring up Franz Wagner is a Michigan guy. You shouldn't be that surprised. Or you should be surprised because obviously I love that dude. He's been lights out lately. No, I mean, so here I'm going with Alan. And again, this is maybe leaning too far in one direction. I think if you tell me that you wanted a certain way, I'll go with van vleet. Lamella is the guy that I think I could definitely see being on the team too. But I don't mind van vleet, having been in the league longer, van vliet. Representing a team that I think maybe down the line will be more in that conversation than Charlotte will when we get down the line. I don't know, again, maybe because it's an All-Star Game. I'm like, man, watching lamella and All-Star Game. I don't know..

"Me in LA. I don't want to see you. There's no Santa with Santa with frown upon that spirit. And so you can't play on Christmas. I will give you credit. That's the first time I've heard that rationale for why they're not playing at Christmas. I mean, I just think that it's chaotic, but if they manage to, I wrote a story on the bulls, a long form story on the board. We're going to talk about the books because I read that story. The bulls and the city of Chicago, what they mean to the city, et cetera. Thank you. Zach, I appreciate that. But within that story, I had a quote from Zach lavine where he was talking about how he's basically never had the same coach from one season to the next really. That's basically what he was saying. And he was saying, I've managed to thrive throughout chaos, my whole career. And I guess in thinking about that quote, embiid has a chance to do that this season. And beat can be chaotic himself sometimes with some of the stuff he says and what have you. But if he's able to thrive this year and keep the sixers in the top half of that playoff conversation, top four seed, which they have enough talent to theoretically do that. They have enough cohesion that theoretically do that. And maybe not having Simmons there helps, you know, if they could trade Simmons and get something for him, it'd be even nicer. You know, so that they would have a little bit more talent and help keep them at the top of that conversation. But no, and beat had enough talent to win MVP last year. He just wasn't healthy enough. I feel like they're going to have to lean on him more. Part of me wonders, even with the what was it that he had Lester was an Achilles thing? They had last year. He was able to play through it in the plastic part of me feels like to some extent I think you're right actually, now that you say that, yeah. Yeah, part of me feels like he's adjusting a kind of managing his body in a way where he knows his limits a little bit more, and he plays through what he can play through and doesn't what he can't. So I think if they can manage him the right way and they win just enough, I think he'll get attention. And if he plays just enough he'll get enough attention positive attention to potentially win the MVP. To me, he's one of the only people left that hasn't won it. That seems like he's on a good enough team to do it. I don't buy Luca and the Mavs this year. I buy Luca. I just don't buy the math being good enough to potentially keep him in the race for that award. Yeah, history suggests you need to win a baseline level of games. Obviously, so the 8 kind of to me there's a group of 8 guys who are your favorites to be in the top 5. Okay. Embiid, Luca, you just crossed off. Yanis, who would probably be my pick, but I am wary of the bucks sort of decelerating his games played or whatever, but that could happen to all these guys gonna end up playing like 70 games and it's just a walk. That's gonna start becoming a normal thing anyway. Durant, harden, jokic, LeBron, and Steph. And then I think and then you get into like, I don't think the blazers will be in enough for Lillard to be in the conversation for a ballot spot, but not to win. I don't think the Celtics will win enough for Tatum or the wizards of wood enough for Beal. Then that leaves you with some interesting candidates. I think you want to hear my two sneaky MVP candidates. Yeah, listen. If the hawks are good, like really good, there's going to be Trey young deserves to be in the conversation of buzzing. I don't think Troy young is on the level of those first date guys, so I don't think he realizes a chance to win. But if the hawks are like 25 and 6 and sniffing a top two seat in the east and Trey young's averaging 30 and 11, there's going to be a young MVP buzz. Yeah. He would deserve it. I mean, quite frankly, now it is interesting. And it's interesting on a couple levels. You said we'll talk about, so I won't get into it too much, but what the story I wrote about the bulls, the framing that we use was kind of like the suns, made it to the finals, the hawks almost made it to the finals. And they did that just by adding a piece or two in their off season. It was basically the same chord they had. So why can't the bulls do that? And within thinking about that, a lot of the bulls fans that did not probably read the story, which I think was complimentary and even handed. We're saying basically, oh, well, you know, you guys are saying that Levine's not a superstar. And it's like, oh yeah, the bulls have had the worst record in the league for the last couple of years. But the interesting thing is that I think you have to make a jump as a team. Your team has to make that sort of jump to see people in a certain light. If they are a superstar and people just aren't recognizing it maybe it's because the team isn't winning. Trey was dealing with a lot of that. Traded make the all star team last year. So the idea of someone not making an all star team one year and then winning the MVP the next, I don't know if it's unprecedented, but it certainly would be rare. But it theoretically could happen. Certainly if they make that sort of jump and the cohesion the amount of cohesion in Atlanta has, the fact that they have a full year with Nate McMillan at the bench as opposed to having a mid season switch. It's a perfectly good pick..

"Know why I gave the backboard a high pitched screaming voice. I think the backboard is a baritone like anyway. I said all that, that was you were responding to your own soliloquy about it. No rush. I love it. So Russ off the bench. I think I had Stephen a Smith on my pod before I went on vacation. You talked about how Russ is a way worse shooter than LeBron, should the Lakers put the ball in Russ's hands a little bit more when they're together. And someone actually at the game, I don't know if it was a coach. Somebody brought that up and I'm like, you look at each other. Are we being serious? They're like, it's a LeBron James, you know? You don't take the ball out LeBron James hand to accommodate anybody. The guy is the greatest ball handler. That's why you don't make the trade. The rust off the bench thing, obviously that picked up momentum. I think the TNT guys mentioned it after the game. I would pay a non trivial sum of money to be in the room when Frank Vogel and rob pelinka sit with Russ and try to sell him on coming off the bat. I don't know how much I would pay. I also would wear a football helmet into the room in case stray objects were tossed off of whatever desk, they were staplers are flying around or whatever. I mean, is it just me or I imagine LeBron would probably say I don't want that either. I mean, unless it's being done because they're like under 515 games in 20 games in, then the writings on their wall and you have to change something and shake something up. But I don't think that it hits it a player's ego, and it's also like, I don't think the Lakers would want to have to do it because it's also an admission that like, damn, this didn't work. This isn't working, the way we thought it would, which that's where I generally trust executives to know that more when we can all see that from the outside in. I don't expect players to know it. This doesn't happen didn't happen without LeBron signing off on it, saying he wants sister that he wants to play with Ross or can play with Rus. Players make horrible GMs most of the time. They do. They have people that their friends with, they have people that they know to be stars, statistically, that they struggle to play against. You struggle to stop, and I get that. Russ has been very hard to stop for the majority of his career, even last year when I was very tough on him, wrote a story about him talked about him on your podcast. Same one where I wrote about Blake Griffin and kind of how younger guys are struggling to age and the NBA. And then Russ made me look silly, the whole second half of the season. So I'll readily admit that he has moments where he looks horribly as moments where he looks great. Silly on a team that was bad and bad when he was on the floor without Bradley Beal. Now Russ is an awesome player. I think he made a legitimate all NBA case last year. I didn't vote for him, but he's a very good player. He's just a floor razor, not a ceiling razor on a good team. And I think this is going to be some I said it before. It's the two most important variables in the entire league this year. Well, I guess not including Kyrie are what is muscle respirator doing when LeBron James has the ball. And number two, how badly if badly at all is Jason Kidd gonna screw up the Dallas Mavericks. Those are the two biggest variables. Can we talk about that? Let's just wrap the Lakers first. Okay, fine. Go ahead. If they have LeBron and AD, they're going to be really good. Period. If those guys are healthy, they're really good. No one's going to want to face them. They already showed in the first game we will lean hard into AD at center if we have to. Like, Deandre Jordan had his little Keith bogans stints and came out of the game. The wing depth will be better. They're gonna be awesome. Russ, no Russ, Russ Fitz, Russell, they're gonna be awesome. But the rust fit is the difference between a third or fourth seed and got some stuff to figure out and a first or second seed in a clear favorite or co favorite to get out of the west.

"herring" Discussed on The Lowe Post

"I feel like the reason I forgot him up, he's just been out of the rotation so much because of all his injuries last year's missed the bubble. But as a guy that, like he did in their first game, go out and get you 26 and 5 or 25 and 6, I don't know if you count the rebounds or they says first. He's a guy that can be hit or miss. I imagine it could be very hit or miss with the rust that he might have from not having played serious basketball in a while. But, man, he's a good player when he's on, and he gives you some of what you're missing. It's not Jamal Murray, nobody really is. But he gives you some of what you're missing. Certainly more than Michael Porter, who I think casual fans see Porter and how much he scores and thinks that he can replace Jamal Murray without realizing that he's not the creator that Jamal Murray is. He did have 5 or 6 assists in their opener, which is encouraging. And I like that he's gonna get to stretch himself a little bit with the ball without Jamal Murray. Look, here's my take on the west. I have no earthly idea who's going to win the west. I will take the field over everyone. I will take the field over the Lakers without even thinking about it. We're going to talk about the Lakers in a second. They look absolutely they didn't look that bad. They didn't look good in their first game. Russ looked rustling awful. I would take the field over everybody, but I will say this. If you told me right now, you will have 90% of Jamal Murray, maybe 85%. And 85% of Kawhi Leonard, the nuggets in the clippers are the two best teams in the west. I feel very strongly about that. I think they're better than the Lakers better than the jazz, better than all these other teams. If the problem is you just don't know when well, in college case, if he's coming back at all this year and Jamal Murray's case, what he's going to look like when it really matters. Look, I said it before. I was gonna pick a net snug finals before Jamal Murray got hurt. I might have just kind of shits and giggles picked the nuggets to win that series. I think once they got Aaron Gordon, they looked incredible, and I will never ever forget they had a game against the clippers in LA. It was like Aaron Gordon's 6th game clippers played everybody, and the nuggets just wire to wire beat down. Aaron Gordon really guarded Kawhi well and it looked like a statement game of oh, you thought you thought the bubble was like a fluke and you know, you changed your coach and got some of your cranky bench guys out and you're all loaded. We're just better than you. We just think we're better than you. So I love the nuggets, I think the clippers are awesome if they're healthy, but neither of those seems are healthy. So I have no earthly idea who's gonna win the west. Yeah. You just like that right now. You thought should get the number one seed just based on continuity. I've talked a lot about the potential turmoil in Utah and that makes me nervous. They've made a ton of changes at the executive level, the health and science level, new ownership is incredibly involved there for better or worse. And every time I start to hear that stuff, I get a little nervous, but you know what? The bucks are an interesting counter example to that because they entered the playoffs with the whole Mike budenholzer thing, hanging over them. Everybody knew that bud was going to be in major trouble and probably fired if they didn't do well in the playoffs. His standing there has gone up and down. And that made me worried about the bucks, 'cause to win the title, you just need everyone zeroed in on the same thing all the time. No distractions, no dissension, no anything. And the bucks were able to win it despite all that and come together. So that gives me hope for Utah. Yeah. I mean, I don't know. And I hadn't even really thought about that stuff kind of swirling over them around them, what have you, they're good basketball team that like you said, for me, and that was probably why I picked the bucks and the jazz specifically, the continuity was there in a year where you've got the nets with whatever they're dealing with. The sixers with whatever they're dealing with, Miami is new, you know, to some extent, in terms of Lowry, at least, I guess. And then you've got the west and it's like, okay, well, are the warriors going to get playback? Are the nuggets going to get Murray back? Are the clippers going to get back in the Lakers did whatever they did, this off season. So it's all these teams that are kind of in some state of flux. And then you've got the jazz and the bucks that more or less kind of stayed the same. And in the bucks case, you know, at some point we'll get div Vincenzo and you know, so I kind of just like the fact that they're continuity is a good thing when you're a first place team. It doesn't mean you don't need more. And the jazz did add to what they had as far as small ball centers and stuff like that with Pascal and Rudy gay. Like at least 6 man of the year Rudy gay. Rudy gay. Let's talk about the Lakers and the warriors who faced off on opening night. I was at that game. I think look, Russ was terrible. If you drew up, if you drew up a what is the worst possible game for Russell Westbrook to play alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, it would have looked exactly like the season opening game. He was either turning the ball over, just running into people or just standing around either above the wing or in the corner while LeBron had the ball and everybody wrote this when this happened. Your nightmare scenario for the Lakers is that LeBron has the ball, whether a D's at center 80s at the four, I think 80 is going to have to play more 5. He played a decent amount of 5 in the first game, actually. If Russ is just standing around 70% of half core possessions, the Lakers are not getting out of the west. It's over. It's decided. Nobody will guard him, their offense will get screwed up. He will contribute not very much. And that's what happened in the first game. Now did he have a one drive one where they slept away from him on the wing, LeBron hit him and he slice through that diagonal gap and then missed a layup or lost the ball on the way up. Yeah, I had one, one. You know how many ball screens he said in the first game, Chris herring? Take a guess. Z ro. You just held up your I just don't understand. I just don't understand how it's possible to go through a training camp and a preseason game. The preseason games where they lost every game..

Rush Limbaugh paper Flip hat tip the greatest of all time. It says it right here in the indictment that the server in Trump Tower allegedly communicating with Alpha Bank and Russia quote was not a secret communication channel with a Russian bank, but a red herring. It was just a legitimate CRM company. Customer relationship management company engaged in a marketing campaign. So they knew this the whole time, folks. They knew this in August of 2016, which is weird, because again just months later in October, August, Jim, please for the audience. Can we do a time check? October is after August. Correct.

The whole thing that it's a quote red herring. That it's not real, that is just made up. But that didn't stop hills. There. It is on my phone right there. Screenshot of her October tweet.

Exploring Attachment Patterns in Relationships With Chelsea Wakefield

"Our attachment patterns are something that is almost unconscious because they're so early they have to do with our early experiences with Caregivers and whether does experience this fell relatively secure. Whether we have the kind of responsiveness that we needed or feel safe. And welcome in the world or whether they were inconsistent or sometimes they were even dangerous. So when i talked people were back. Their early. lives I find that some of them as little kids were really really focused on their parents and they wanted to know how to please them. What are the parents lawn and needs that. They could stay in alignment with them and do not get in trouble or get the kind of attention that they were longings for that creates something called an anxious attachment pattern where the lottery. Johnston is hyper focused on the other and the needs of the other and every little nuance of that other person. That indicates that there's a message then. Maybe they're displeasing them or perhaps that other person has gotten a little bit different her distant because they feel overwhelmed by the attention they start your more insecure and afraid of abandonment so that's one type of attachment patterns that we call anxious and the other type of detachment pattern looks more independent but it's also insecure attachment patterns and these are the children that grew up learning that it was best just to go to their room and read a book or play video games and they sued and settled most of the way along. So if you get paranoia somebody who is afraid of abandonment and the other in. Who's afraid of being overwhelmed by a lot of emotion are hey us that could be a really difficult herring and those two galloping across the relationship landscape because one's trying to rock closer than the others seeking says and both of them are misinterpreting accused the

Former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder Slams Terry McAuliffe for Marginalizing Black Candidates

"Two years ago, Terry McAuliffe remember he's the bagman for the Clintons turned, McAuliffe called for all three persons occupying the offices of governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general to resign. All three Democrats. Governor Northam had been shown pictured in his school's yearbook in blackface and subsequent revelations by age Mark Herring acknowledged appearing in blackface in 1985. What is it with this black face and liberals and Democrats seriously? The media ran the story of two women accusing lieutenant governor Fairfax of sexual assault actually raped. Denied by Fairfax. But former governor McAuliffe within minutes thereafter proclaimed the accusations to be credible. I think incredible by the way Today. McAuliffe is asking people to vote for the attorney general who served as his attorney general and seeks the continuing a sport supportive Northam. No reasons have been given to the voters as to Terry's change of mind, nor has any reason being made why McCulloch felt compelled to violate Virginia's longstanding precedent. By choosing to run again against persons who had far more experience he means of the Democrat primary. Then he As he had never held elective office of any kind when he ran. All of the candidates he opposed, except one were black, including two women. Whom he felt not qualified to be given the chance that he'd been given at last report. Governor Northam is what drawn his apology for black face. Is what Northam and Herring did all right. By any standard is McCullum going to tell the voters of the credible evidence that he has relative to Fairbanks? Does this suggest? That if you're a black person in Virginia If you've got to think about who you're going to vote for it, then you ain't black. Stay tuned.

"On the high seas, And this one is a whale of a tale. His name's not Jonah. But this Cape Cod Mansour has something in common with the biblical figure now Commercial lobster diver Michael Packard was going about his business off the coast of Provincetown, Massachusetts, when he was swallowed whole by a humpback whale trapped in its gullet for nearly a minute before being coughed back up. Packard 56 was was about 35 ft. Below the surface near Herring Cove Beach at eight A.m. yesterday when the massive mantle mammal tried to tournament to breakfast, quote. All of a sudden I felt this huge shove and the next thing I knew I was it was completely black. I could since I was moving, and I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth. Stunned. His first thought was that he'd been snapped up by a great white shark and was done for Packard set. Yeah, Packard said he thought to himself. This is it. I'm going to die. Uh, quote. I was completely inside. It was completely black. I thought to myself, there's no way I'm getting out of here. I'm done. I'm dead. All I could think of was my boys. They're 12 and 15 years old, but when he realized he could feel no teeth He began struggling and felt the whale shaking his head and discomfort within 40 seconds. The massive mammal spit him back out into the ocean. I saw light and he started throwing his head side to side and the next thing I knew I was outside back in the water. My first thought was. I can't believe I got the situation and my second was how injured I might have been his boating, Powell salt water spraying As a sea creature surfaced and salt Packard ejected, He plucked him out of the sea and rushing to the hospital, where he was treated for soft tissue damage to his

"herring" Discussed on The Lowe Post

"You know one guy against the nuggets is going to be tough. And they need like no one's guarding paul outside the perimeter because they know he doesn't shoot threes that that could be a little bit a little bit by the way. I have an important question. Why is it that no one including me just says pain. We all say campaign. I know is it because his name is an actual word like presidential campaign. No one says pain or cam. it's always campaign anyway. That's i guess campbell roy. I'm just annoying. I had myself just thinking about it as you said that. Even we could call him cameron payne and we used to do it for some reason. I don. I watched yokich post ups against eight in this morning from the regular season. Eight actually does pretty well in the most to get as well as you can manage against. Maybe the best low post player in the league timor. I'm beat he held his own. He's pretty strong. He's along so his length bothered yokich a little bit like he would have to lost those shots. A little higher than he wanted to foul trouble will be will be a big bellwether. I think but eight and ten. Okay in the post. To the point that descends to the sons did what the players did which is not send very much help. Dig down here dick down there. But they mostly left eight and to his own devices and said we're just not going to let them pass at a double teams to pick and roll. Be interesting because as you said in the regular season eight and dipped off of yokich to help on drives much more than portland did. But that's because jamal murray was driving and jamal murray is injured so that will be interesting. I suspect that we will see. Aaron gordon guarding devon booker. Pretty early in the series if not right from the jump just to try to shut. I mean no one's shutting him down but try to limit him. We saw aaron gordon guarded. Everybody went from you. And from a powell covington dame cj. I suspect we will see that. And i think the the portland series was a good warm up for denver in this sense it tested their pick and roll defence. Pretty heavily yokich came up to the level of the screen. Everybody had to help zone up behind him three shooters to on one side. One on the other do you help from. They had ruled for that. They follow those rules pretty well. Phoenix plays a very similar kind of game. They might be even more creative than portland about moving those pieces around off the ball to try and confuse defenders. Yoga did not come up as high on picks against booker and paul as he did against lillard. Because there's a five alarm fire from thirty feet away. Those guys are more mid range guys. So that battle will be interesting but i think schematically too similarities between portland and phoenix it. That served as kind of a warm up for. I think. I think this is going to be a long series. I think denver could play the washington generals and it would go at least six games like denver is just not capable of playing a short series. I don't even know what i would pick the series in just like i said i feel good about the suns here but there's no way i would say anything less than six and like you said i think by default. Now i'm just kind of unless you're picking denver to win the series that you have to discount Almost go in thinking that denver will somehow take it seven even if they fall behind three one here. It is a different team from last year. But i i dunno yokich you'll get can create mismatches You know part of the reason. I'm picking phoenix here either. In six hundred and seven is because of what you said because when you look at the film eight looks like he holds his own just to not against yoga's to where it might not be just dominant And you know dominant dominance in this last series on some level was yokich fouling out nurses and that was huge. So as long as that doesn't happen in man. I couldn't believe that it has had four thousand one quarter if i love that he gets no fouls an hat's almost like why i don't have to pay attention to the foul. Ignorance has four power completely turned the game. I i told you that tweeted that thing about how is collecting baseball cards. And as soon as i tweeted that he picked up four thousand like the next eight minutes and everyone tweeted at me like you spoke too soon chris. So as long as phoenix stays out of that sort of trouble as long as agencies out of that sort of trouble because like you said kamensky would just be toast. You know if he has to guard him as long as they can stay out a bat. I really do like phoenix ear. Whether it's six or seven i love denver's much as anybody but It a certain point whether it's the cohesion everything else we've talked about. And just the fact that the rotations play really well together I feel a little bit better about being exterior. They'll do denver. And denver has to work harder now to get teams in rotation without murray and they were pretty good about that in the in the first round. You know yoko. After run more pick and rolls. He liked having him set a back screen for port or vice versa. To get to get porter cutting to the rim and yo- coaches man as the dip off and then you'll get chest space little place where he can either take a cross screen or a or a flex screen up toward the top of the arc. He has little choice about which one to go there. Very good about that. I was going to be a fun. It's gonna be fun series of the second round. We didn't talk about hawks sixers. That's just sort of like embiid is healthier is not going to be a fun series. Mr herring illustrated anything specific. You want to pump up here. No i guess. As you mentioned hawksbill. I did a longer piece Pretty reason i guess the week before last on kind of you know asking is this atlanta's moment to some futile piece. It was a beautiful mind body. Appreciate that but yeah just him and kind of the back. You know crazy statistic. That i found in researching at the hawks have gone longer ten years longer than any other team in the league. Twenty eight years of this year. I guess will be at least twenty nine since the last time they had a top ten player in the mvp race An mvp boating. So how unusual. Trae young for them but also Kind of sparking banned for a lot of people. That generally don't pay attention to. The hawks are don't pay attention to the nba there So i guess. That's probably the only thing i'd really plug but appreciate you have me the opportunity to do that. Well chris is good as it gets in the business. It's always wonderful to talk to you. I look forward to senior person sooner. Rather than later. Chris herring everybody..
