"And being their basketball coach, but also just being there for them. And we Becky has talked about is that she wasn't sure if it was like, I think the quote she said was like, you know, my girls are really loose. I don't know if that's a good thing, or if that's bad thing. But I like it. And I think for her, it was just letting them be themselves. And not trying to live better term, just do too much. So let them be themselves and trusting in them. And can you remind us what exactly its team accomplished during the regular season? Yeah, so the aces finished ties to the best record in the league and they had a tie breaker with Chicago to get the number one seed and they won the commissioner's cup. Man, we got the cup. Oh my goodness, this is a great feeling, but we're not done yet. And then they had four all stars. On their team, the most of the league was Asia Wilson and adria camby Kelsey plum and Jackie young were the four all stars. Plum, just capping off an already strong night. Pulls up. Oh, the four point shot logo to seal the game. She wins MVP. I do a little dance to celebrate. Age of one, her second MVP, she won defensive player of the year. Kelsey was third in MVP voting. Jackie got most improved player. So the team just had accolades on top of accolades. Coming into the playoffs. Well, this team more or less steamrolled its way through to the finals and after getting blown out in game three, they just came back and closed things out on Sunday in game four. Chris, what stood out to you about their performance in that clinching game? I think the game was like a perfect example of what Becky had been talking about throughout the season. She always said, we need them to choose each other and show it in that game to where

"I don't know, but that's one thing that I would love to see is just a little bit more help behind. Elizabeth but, you know, you do have to leave it all out there. I think Alyssa guard her guard Chelsea 94 feet. Don't let her beat us. Yeah. I don't know if that's going to work. But you have to beat the mismatch because she's also the mismatch on the offensive end. Yes. She's the area where they have the most advantage in that big lineup. And she's not doing it. And you know, she had a post up, but I don't remember if they were able to get her the ball or if there was help coming. But I think that that lineup has to be out there because you're going, you have to go out on some terms. Yes. It seems like game three or four is gonna be where you go out. Yeah. I'd say go out with those four on the floor. And you have to. And you were talking about Alyssa Thomas and her ability to match up with Chelsea gray, right? In terms of strength, physicality, it's a great matchup. But Alyssa Thomas is also a great matchup on Wilson. So we need, you know, for Connecticut, do they need 5, 80s? Like they need 5. They absolutely need 5 unless it's almost. Never take a shot outside the paint. Oh God, Connecticut would love it. Right? But defensively. You know what I mean? Like defensively, Alyssa Thomas can guard multiple positions. And she's done a good job with forcing Asia Wilson to her right. She's done a good job, you know, making it rough for her muddying the paint up when Wilson gets the ball. But she's also a dog when it comes to getting up underneath and into Chelsea gray. And I think you saw that down the stretch, and this was after gray came back on the floor after her ankle, her left ankle rolled that she had and went to the locker room came back, went back into the game. But when Chelsea gray came back into the game, they had Jackie young running some point. I don't know if you saw that, right? So a couple of times, they had Chelsea as the top screener away in Connecticut. Yes. And their double stagger action. She was the first screener in that. Instead of being the one coming off with the ball in that. So who knows, again, what Chelsea gray and hopefully she's just fine and, you know, they're going to tape it up. And she's definitely playing, I'm not saying she's not going to play. But, you know, will they take some pressure off of Chelsea gray in that regard? Taking her off the ball. And letting Jackie young run some point guard. And I mean, when you have a player like gray, who can set solid screens, why not try that? And they did that. They executed so well. I don't know. That play is going to just ring in my head for days here now because I'm going to look for it again in game three, because it was just perfectly executed. They just baited Connecticut so well into the rotation that they wanted and found. Asia Wilson on her strong side on the weak side there, the left block, and she finished with her strong dominant left hand. So I don't know, for me, I just think I love the game so much, and I love the inner workings of it. And I do love the exynos, and I do appreciate it. So I don't want to throw it all out the window, but at the same time, you know, it comes down to bearing down. You got to bear down mentally and just fight for what you want. And show that passion. And it's okay to show that passion and frustration, right? When you have that passion and things aren't working out the way you want it to, you still have to fight hard, man. And that's what I want to see from Connecticut. And they've got to get buckets. They've got to get stops. And they've got to do a better job of containing the paint. Well, I think this whole part of the conversation assumes that the little things that we've talked about, those execution errors are not going to be there for Connecticut. The whole part of this discussion talking about the X and those relies on not having those mistakes and having to want to bond and make some shots. Those two things absolutely need to happen. If those two things can not happen, again, we're hanging out in Connecticut with the Las Vegas ace is going to have a party. But FaceTime me, FaceTime me if that happens, man. I'm going to be there until the wee hours of the morning regardless. I'm having fun. If that happens. If that happens, FaceTime even if you gotta go live if that happens here. Oh yeah, live from a. We'll talk about dude live. No, and I think he was just like another idea that popped into my head and again I'm on my Miami Heat fan, so just like bear with me. Throughout this season, the Miami Heat ran some zones where it was bam adebayo at the point of the attack. He was the, they run a very specific zone and I'm not sure kinetica has installed anything like this so this may not be, this may be a nonstarter altogether. But if you put a list of Thomas at the point of attack in a three three two match up zone, I think that could help just like stave off the onslaught of Chelsea gray without having to put Alyssa Thomas in a fully non health position. Right. Like you can get a lot more if you're able to just switch right before the elbow and have Alyssa pushing the attack out past the three point line. I again, this is not the time to install something new. If they have something that's like that and I haven't noticed that this year, but they may, I don't know. If they have something like that now is the time to whip it out because I think that could be really helpful to help the heat a lot because their guards were not that good at stopping penetration. So the person who's best is up in penetration is bam adebayo for them, it's Alyssa Thomas for Connecticut and then you get your two bigs down at the rim, better help position. You know, you might give up some corner threes, but hopefully those corner threes are going to players hand be in Jack young. If hamby and Jackie young beat you? Whatever, that is the way the cookie crumbles, at least you're not getting beat in the same exact way. So that's just like a bite that. Yeah, right? Yeah, yeah, put me in Kurt. Let's try to install this in on the charter flight. I guess let's move on. Last question. Is this series over in game three?

"That's an insane stat for a point guard who so much of her shots are not near the basket. Are contested. I mean, the level of defense that she's facing from Gabby Williams, jewel Lloyd, Brian January, and so on. This is underratedly one of my favorite storylines of the playoffs. And then you got Kelsey plum and Jackie young and Asia Wilson, who are just continuing to do crazy things. Thoughts on them. No, what's crazy is just the Seattle storm. You know, they were able to come out and I would say had one of the most complete offensive games that we've seen from them. And at least in the second half of the season. I mean, you finish with 6 players and double figures. You know, Brianna Stewart finished with a double double 20 and 20 and 15, Julio, 17, which, you know, looking at the stash, you're like, oh, that's great. I think the difference maker in that she finishes one for 7 from the three point line. That hurts you. Because this is a team that just lives and dies. They don't live and die, but the three ball is so important for Seattle's level of success. So, you know, down the stat sheet, Sue bird, Stephanie Talbot's been playing really well, even magma ended up a perfect four for four for ten points. So I mean, from an offensive perspective, Seattle, I mean, you know, they made that run. They come back, you know, you've got 6 players in double figures, you end up scoring 98 points, like the issue is, in my opinion, we don't have to get we can if you want, get into a specific of how the game ended. I keep replaying it in my mind. But that was the most you missed a couple free throws. But my point is big picture here. They couldn't find a way to slow down Las Vegas, you know? Like regardless, you have, you score the amount of points that you score, your issues are not on the offensive end of the floor outside of your missed crucial free throws down the stretch. But how in the hell do you slow down Las Vegas? Well, so I'll say this, like my stance on that game is it was Vegas to lose. And in a sense, they lost it, not in the records, but in a sense they lost it because the second half was such a drop off of the lead, the domination, and they allowed Seattle to crawl back into that game. There was places where I feel like time out should have been called. There was places where, and that's been the criticism of Becky throughout this season, right? Not the timeout specifically, but a little bit of letting the players kind of just flow and do what they want a little bit too much and sometimes as the coach you need a rail them in. I'm not hating on Becky. I think she's a top coach in this league. But when I look at that stretch, that's where I started to question, okay, this is Vegas letting Seattle back in the game, not Seattle putting themselves back in the game. And it comes down to, look, completely agree with what you were saying. When I think back at the game right now, honestly, I think the thing that allowed Seattle back in the game was the crap offense from Vegas. It was a lot of early early in the shot clock chuck ups, a lot of bad looks that they were, it looked like they were going through the motions. It almost looked like a three quarter like 5 on 5 game drill where they're like, okay, and Kelsey, when you get the ball up here, what are you going to do? She's like, oh, I'm going to shoot it. Okay, let's run into the next. Like, it didn't seem like they were playing a playoff basketball game. And that type of mentality will not only lose you playoff games. It will lose you series. And Seattle just was not able to capitalize on it. And as much as it does not pay me to say this because I've been in the camp of Tina Charles, has if she's not coming off the bench for this team and being like a vet role player playing a very specific small role than this team is going to be in trouble. But at the end of the day, Tina Charles, you hit two free throws, the game's over, Seattle pulls off that victory, and we're not talking about, is this Brianna Stewart's last game in Seattle's uniform? Is this super birds last game ever? Is this breon January's last game ever? There's a lot of question marks, a lot of storylines for this team. And I think we wouldn't necessarily be having those questions if it was just as easy as heck, make one of the free throws. Or as he put your hands up, like, whatcha doing, Rachel. Okay, Rachel, as a former coach as a former player in the post, Jackie young gets the ball in the paint right in front of you. Are you keeping your hands down or are you putting them up? I mean, I'm not keeping them down. I mean, you've got a contest the shot. I mean, I understand maybe being hesitant of not wanting the and one. But to give up a point blank layup, you know, I think it was just a little literally a level of just like blanked out, you know? Not wanting to give up the and one, not accidentally bodying or hitting on the foul. Instead of just hammering her in contesting the shot and making her earning it from the free throw line. Well, that's the thing. I would think it's one of those a brain fart is the only thing I can think of like where she's sitting there and she's thinking about the process of and honestly, I put that on coach. Not preparing the player and maybe this is wrong with me, so call me honest. I put that on coach for not in the huddle before that play going, hey, if you're in the paint and somebody gets it, you don't

"I think that was their chance. So I was confused at this and I'm glad that you said this. So when Subaru had hit the three, it said .2 on the clock. When Jackie young is catching the ball, it says 1.8 on the clock, but as soon as the ball touches her hands, it jumps down to .8. I think what was happening is it was showing 1.8, but the actual call was that it was .8 .8. I was confused. I was confused as to why there was still that much time left on the clock because Sue caught the ball with like 60 seconds. Yeah, I was like, how did you make more sense? Probably doesn't affect the catch and shoot was quick enough. It was quick enough. It made it in the .8. As soon as it touches her hands, it's at .8, like it switches down to .8 and then she gets it off in time. Plenty of time. So either way, either way, it was fine. But goodness, there were so many little things building up to that end of the first, well, that was going to say the first game. The end of the fourth quarter before overtime. So the one thing I want to point out is you mentioned that Seattle had their hands down. They didn't want to foul, they were like, hey, we'll just take over time. I didn't like that, by the way. I don't know if I included that. Analysis. You know who else didn't like it? Seattle coach, Noelle Quinn. She said, that's on me. She's like, what happened at the end of the game? Execution, everything. She goes, that is all that's on me. So she, she's taking full responsibility on whatever defense was set up there. But I will say, I don't know if it was intentional or if it was just a, hey, force overtime. Steve called this out in our group chat earlier in the game. He pointed out that Las Vegas pretty much all series, but especially and in particular this game was attacking the hoop. They weren't just they weren't just like looking for open shots. They were going right at players and finishing or at least drawing contact drawing files and a lot of times finishing through that contact. And they do a really, really good job of that, and they've done that kind of throughout the whole season. Kelsey plum is one of the best finishers contact finishers in the game, Asia, obviously, does it very, very well. I don't know how many and one Asia Wilson's has had and ones Asia Wilson has had this season. But it's a lot. And so maybe because of some of that, maybe I don't know if they were coached to do that or if that was just like, hey, don't fall him because they make it anyway. Kind of a deal, but man, it was just so many things like Seattle did so many things right at the end of regulation. And ended up losing by 12 and over time. They had the game was I feel like they lost the game when Jackie young put that bucket down because they were just like mentally, you see Sue bird at the bucket in

"She got in there finished, got tagged, and sometimes you get to the line because you crash like that because people aren't positioned to defend. Well, and you know, I'm looking at why you're talking and looked up who else had offensive rebounds, because as you mentioned, as you had three. Williams also had three. Just got bunnies, man. You know? And it was a lot. I just watched them. Asia really boxing out in the whole Seattle team having to crunch down on her 'cause she has either Stephanie Talbot on her jewel Lloyd or someone. And then that ball squirting out to Rihanna Williams. And I think the other thing that you touched on is just capitalizing on those situations. Getting the offensive rebounds and getting 11 second chance points. They had 7 offensive rebounds and they had 6 more, both teams had 7 offensive rebounds in their respective wins. And aces at 6 more points, right? So just capitalizing on those mistakes, understanding the situation of like, this is a key moment. Like you just mentioned, offensive rebounds are key moments. Gates of free throw line, those can be key moments. I think the aces took the lead at the free throw line. Those are huge moments in the game where you can say, hey, we got this possession. Hey, we turn them over. We got an easy bucket. Those things really change your mentality. And so to capitalize on all those second chance opportunities was huge. I think for the aces and just a really great team win, and then you look at the turnovers. How happy is a series make you as a coach, just the turnovers you're so low. 9, 9 Las Vegas turnovers to Seattle 7. I mean, there's a reason that these two teams, you know, badly, because they're very clean when it comes to taking good care of the basketball. And you know, and a lot of those turnovers weren't live balls. So a lot of them are required to Williams driving and mishandle it on the baseline or whatever. Like there are just some little miss cues like that, the one at the end, Jackie young trying to save it, try to get a timeout, which I don't know. I would like to see different angles of that number. She almost, she almost got it. I know we only get the one angle, but I thought it was at all. I wanted to see, you know, multiple angles of that. But anyway, it just plays like that. So it wasn't like live ball situations where turned into, you know, a bucket full or a bushel full of buckets for the other team. Off of live ball situation. So yeah, I mean, you'd love to see that as a coach, like anything under 12, you know? I'm happy if you don't have, if you don't have those. And if they are 12, you know, you want at least more than half of them, you want them to just be miscues. Right. You don't want them to be, you know, throwing them in and no one can defend. Dead ball or better. Go out of bounds if you're going to turn it over, guys. It's still frustrating though. So I mean, it's still like, don't make a habit of it. Okay, that's enough. That one time is good. Hope you seem a bit very, very careful with the ball. It's made for kids. And now a lot of files in that game were more files than game two, but that was, it wasn't careless fouls, and that's what I think makes. I don't want to see careless files. I want to see good fouls on players going to the room. Oh, hey. Hi, Friends. Hello. All right. Do you, do we have anything else in this series? I think we kind of touched. I mean, you know, I want to see Jackie young to do a little bit better in her shooting, one of 9. That's like. Her and joule Lloyd, those two, you know, even with them not being efficient, offensively. Still, I mean, I think their key components key pieces, I thought, Jackie young's defense was tough, you know? I thought she did other things. Sometimes your shot's not falling. But what else are you doing to help the team? I mean, Brianna historic 32 points. Yeah, we didn't talk to the studio enough. I'm sorry. We should talk. We gotta talk about Stewart. We gotta talk about this here. The pull up, the pull ups that stoppable. Like, I know they were joking about this in the broadcast. The pull ups and stop a lot, there's not a player. I mean, Asia defensive player of the year, we'll talk about that later, but she couldn't stop it. She was something that jumper either. She's just long. What does she have a 7 one wingspan? Yeah. How are you going to? And even if you're right there, it's like you're going to close out here and she still has a release point because of her arms are so long. It's like not much you can do other than disrupt her catch. You know, and then try to disrupt her footwork as she's trying to get into that. But man, I don't know if I had secret sauce on that she wouldn't be shocked. She just like, it's also like, she uses her, like the balls appear up here, yeah. Very, very old old school. I would say release from Stewart and it just gets over everyone. And she's just been unstoppable. It's quick. It's almost to the point where like we just did.
"jackie young" Discussed on WNBA Nation
"Name that really stood out. I think there were a lot of different takes as far as that's considered, but I think Asia makes a lot of sense here. And makes the discussion for the MVP, as I said before, very, very interesting because rolling in with the defensive player of the year award and MVP award. Would be quite the flex and I'm not sure what the WME is narrative is on that. Like I've always said, the MVP award is very much a narrative driven award. It's always been. That's how it's always going to be. It's just the tool that it is for a sports league, and to move into a position where you potentially have high potential to hand both of these award mantles over to a single player. The thing is, Asia's got the argument for that, she's performed at that level. She's scored at that level, the wind shares are there. Now, the offensive win shares do lean tour more toward Brianna in this case. But she very much stands in place as far as what she has contributed to a winning team. Now, the difference here is how do you compare what she's been able to contribute as far as that is considered with what her teammates have put in because of course, scoring wise, she hasn't. She's scored really well this year. She's played extremely well offensively. Obviously, but the need I suppose mantle for that hasn't been as heavy for her as it's been in years past. Kelsey plums taken up a lot of that note Chelsea gray's taken up a lot of that Jackie young has taken up a lot of that. And do you look a little bit away from that MVP and look more toward free Stewart who while coupled with a dual Lloyd and a suburb and a Tina Charles and a handful of great players, definitely has put on the narrative of someone who is very much been the muscle of this team and carried that squad. Of course, as I said before, she leads the league over the regular season in overall and offensive wind share and finish the season as the leading scorer and very much put in that level of play. And it's an interesting discussion because I think the arguments are there for Asia, while it also is something that stands to there's an argument to be made easily for Brie as well. They're both players looking for their second MVP award, which adds intrigue to the discussion. And it goes one to two ways. If Asia obviously taking in this DPI award, if she doesn't end up as the MVP, are people going to see this narrative as the defensive player consolation award, which I know other leagues who have the same structure often have that argument. Did this certain player get a defensive player that your word because they weren't going to be MVP and they wanted to appease them in some way. That remains to be said or felt or whatever it is. But it'll be interesting to see. I think the announcement for that is going to honestly fully depend on. You know, when that comes in for easily contingent on where it goes to, I think those are the names that you tend to gravitate to and you essentially have two opportunities. I wouldn't be shocked if they speed this if they give this to Asia. First of all, tomorrow they'll probably have some moment on the court with a shout her out and her trophy and let the crowd be a part of it. Do you add a surprise to that and say, hey, by the way, she's taking home two trophies. Here's the MVP word. Or are you turning this into, you know, are we waiting on this until Sunday when this actually would be, where do you make it breeze moment? Do you wait until then to make that announcement? Because they've essentially been going day by day and I think they had like a soft schedule on when these announcements would come in. But as always, theatrics are very much a part of this narrative. So that's going to remain to be seen. If I had to put money down for some reason, I probably would lean to Brie as far as that's considered, I think the aces do make a lot of sense. You're talking about easily the most pivotal player on the top team, but also you're looking at Brie who maintained a top four seed opportunity for her team and is very much taken on a huge load offensively and done so supremely well. Also, just look at how much Vegas has cleaned up in the award slot. Right now you're taking a coach of the year, most improved and you're taking home the defense player of the year and you're going to steal the MVP as well. We've seen teams take up a huge load of awards. I'm not sure if more than three has happened at a time. I don't know if a team's taking home four in a given year as far as individual or considered. But that would be quite the load. And like I said, with the MVP especially, that's a narrative run, and I think it would be interesting if the WNBA was put at risk go. Hey, let's say the Seattle or a team in the next round puts up an upset against the Vegas and they don't end up with a championship, and we handed them all these words, that's a narrative thought. There's at least one person in that room having that thought. Or at least one person in that voting body, whoever it is, they may not be in a room together, whatever.

"We are who they thought they were. They're an insanely high powered starting 5. Maybe a good starting 6. But then after that, it just really, really falls off. I know, you know, it's been beaten like a drum the whole idea of, oh, would have been good to have an actual GM before like more than a week before the draft. For the majority of free agency, all of that jazz. But at the end of the day, this team still has shown it has the power, my issue, and I know the people who disagree with me would say, well, at the end of the day, in a playoff series, I'm not worried because you can play your starters a lot more in the playoff series. That's true, but also we've never seen this type of playoff before in the W, where it's series series series. What happens if Las Vegas goes three three 5? In assuming they make it to the finals, when you make it to the finals in that 5th game at 6 game and even earlier than that, if you're talking about the gap that you have between these games. This is a condensed schedule. And that means the playoffs are condensed also. And according to what Kathy said, you're only getting charter flight if you're flying or if you're in the finals. So you very well could be playing 6 games in a short period of time with two to three travels included, if not more, and I just think it's a very tricky situation and it's almost like they're just asking for something bad. Well, it certainly helps when you route teams like they did last night against the New York liberty and you're able to kind of play everybody around 20 minutes a game. I mean, games like that definitely help. But no, 100%. You said it before perfectly. Things have to go so right. And in my opinion, the playoffs, we're not looking at this like years past, where it was very evident that there was one dominant team that was the favorite to go in at all. I think maybe the most recent one I felt was almost the Seattle storm of whatever the hell you were that was. But I think that the thing about Las Vegas is they have gone through some adversity. You know, they're not just routing people anymore. They're having to come back from situations. They're having to face different adversity on the road. They're losing games that we probably feel like they should be winning. And that's okay. I don't think that's a bad thing. That's a team that's going through the regular course of a season. I think what makes me the most encouraged about Las Vegas as of late is obviously having ricotta Williams back that adds a little bit of depth. She played really well, had 13, 17 minutes last night, repair, you know, she's had a couple games where she comes in and she's gotten some good minutes and been really serviceable and really both ends of the floor. And so I think, I don't know. I question the depth. I have the concern of death, at least with that starting 5, because that's the, I mean, Kelsey plummeting Wilson. They're 45% of their offensive production. But I'm not the right there. You know, they're right there. They need to continue to get through this final fourth of the season. Third of the season, whatever it is, and just win games, you know, be able to continue to get their starters that the minutes they need, but not too much. You know, you can't run people into the ground, head into the headed into this final stretch. And continue to develop that bench. You know, two or three, four people have got to be stepping up their level of play going into playoffs because you never know when that number's going to be called. I mean, again, it all comes down to health with Las Vegas if they can stay healthy. They're starting 5 can be healthy and I mean, I don't question Kelsey plum's ability to go. I mean, she's probably in the best shape anyone else in the league, in my opinion. But you question, okay, Asia Wilson, you know, she's going to be able to go. Jackie young, I think she'll be able to go. It's just a matter. Can they stay healthy? And in situations where, you know, maybe there's found trouble or someone else's name is called. Are they going to be able to step up? I think they have the tools to do it. But man, the stars have to align, in my opinion. Yeah. No, I never said. And I would say even more so to add on that, it's like, all of this is great, but at the end of the day, if you get into a playoff series, very much so in the same way that we knew when the Connecticut sun with Kurt Miller, when they were playing like 6 people, we're only going to play 6. You knew when it came to playoff time, it's not all of a sudden going to change. This isn't like a Becky has this genius plan that, you know, all of a sudden Sidney Coulson is going to be a 6 woman of the year candidate just in the playoffs who hasn't played all season. I mean, props to these Vegas players who essentially are getting played or paid to be practice squad players. I mean, I think more than anything. We talk so much about Las Vegas is offense, which obviously, you know, is high powered and fun and amazing and all the things. But, you know, their ability to defend. I mean, how do New York liberty hung a 101 on them is beyond me. I mean, that's just, that's the most alarming things with the aces, in my opinion, you know, if you're just going to make this a track meet and you're going to just try to outscore people and you're not going to get stops and you're not going to defend. I mean, it's not going to happen in my opinion. You know, you can't sustain that level of play. Just trying to score a 107 on people through an entire playoff. It's not going to work. At some point you're going to have to rely on getting stops and defending the way that they need to. And I know that they've talked about that, listen to Becky him and talk about it and press conferences after. And the players talk about, hey, we've got to embrace the defense benefit floor. And this is not like a horrendous defensive team. It's just, you know, they have moments like that where it's like, it just turns into this absolute track meet high octane offensive game from both teams and up for us as a viewer, man. It's incredible to see, but from an offensive standpoint. But it's those defensive lapses that this team has that concern me the most. 100%, 100%. Now let's talk about the next tier. Seattle and Connecticut. And maybe Washington is kind of in that tier because all these teams have 15 wins. Seattle has 16. But I'm just I'm not comfortable putting Washington in that tier. I think Washington's kind of in a tier alone. The tier below the top two seeds is Seattle and Connecticut. And while we know that they have the star power to get things done, like you were talking about, the consistency with me my biggest concern between the two teams is their seems to be like just one piece missing in Seattle and with Connecticut, it just seems that like, well, the pieces don't mesh yet, yes. Well, I think okay, let's start with Seattle. Their role in their on a winning streak. Okay, but like they've beat LA. They've beat Indiana twice and they've beat Atlanta. Oh no, they lost you Atlanta. And then I think the one before that, they beat, oh, they beat the aces. So, okay, when I'm looking at games, okay, you drop a game to Atlanta, which, you know, Atlanta is one of those sneaky random teams that we thought would be an absolute, you know, you know, you know what I'm saying? You know, you drop that game to Atlanta, which is just a little bit for that reason alone. You know, like this team should be routing and dominating people at this point of the season. Now, they go out and they beat Las Vegas. That was great. That was their last true test, quote unquote. Again, if we're talking about top tier teams, and that was June 29th. So I'm not sitting and looking at this team thing and like, okay, they're hitting their stride. They've won three games. They've beat the fever. I mean, whatever. You know, I think that with Seattle, obviously they're in great position. Obviously, I believe that they have, they have what it takes to win it all. I don't know that I feel the same as you in terms of a missing piece. I think they have what it takes. They're right there.

"Griner is going to be honored and I know you mentioned that earlier. But number two, just with having three of the Las Vegas aces and starters, I know a lot of people listen to our podcast and I've heard what we say. Regurgitated, you know, in public places. So best players are the best team. You know, and I know I said that in our previous podcast about Asia Wilson right now. And I know we're not doing early picks for MVP, but on that podcast we were. And that's what I went with saying Asia Wilson is the best player on the best team. And I know other people have that same opinion. And are not listening to the podcast. So there's that too. But thank you for listening. If you're listening. But with that with having three starters, I don't really have a problem with that because I know that plum and I know that Jackie young, I know Jackie young is getting attention as MVP. Candidate and I know she had an injury recently and kind of had her in and out of the lineup a little bit. But still, I mean, I don't have a problem with it. And I know that's a lot in terms of percentage of your starting lineup, being on the all star. Team, but are on the all star list. But I'm not mad about it. Are you mad about that? No. No, I think it's fine. I mean, I had a personally I have plumbing on both of my starting lineup when I voted. I don't get a media vote. I just had like a normal fan, but we should get media votes. WNBA, we should get those. I had plumbing young, I think both of them have been absolutely incredible. I think both of them have gotten. Some MVP stuff, which I still don't agree with. I think the MVP is Asia Wilson and your second choice would be Brianna Stewart. But I think those two being in there certainly not like something bad. Actually on our podcast where we were picking Richard Cohen picked Chelsea gray to be a starter. Because he said that she was so involved in everything that the other players were doing that she's really the straw that stirs the drink. And she makes everything happen. I think that's a very valid argument too. Personally, I'm cool with those with all 5 of the Vegas players getting in the All-Star Game. I didn't think all 5 were starters. I thought we'd end up with two or three. But I think all 5 of them probably deserve to be in the All-Star Game. And it is because partly because of the best players in the best team. But it's also just because they have been all stars. In their own right, they have all been all stars and they have been incredible. So I think they deserve that nod. So I thought that was interesting to Vegas thing. I'm not surprised, I think Sabrina and escue deserves to be up there and what a season for her. This has moved off ball a bit and she's made her game open up. She's playing a lot more like she did in Oregon. Just coming off screens, basically spamming screens the entire time. And that's huge for her because she's getting hurt. She's being able to get reads and understand them quicker, which again, when she's coming off the ball to get the ball and then go into a screen. And we see that in Natasha cloud all the time too. So I think that's a great pick. And then we have suburb making it. This one, just a little upset by. Is in her final season and she's playing like an all star. There's a really, there's just a solid argument that she is an all star starter, especially the news that she came back. She came back in Minnesota's last game, I don't remember who they were playing. I'm sorry, I don't have the in front of me at the moment. Oh wait, I do. Yeah, they're playing the mercury. Silly files comes back and plays really well. And I'm like, okay, then she's healthy. She can play in the game. Great. I think she's an all star starter on her own merit regardless of being in her final season. Is not an all star this year. Last year, there was an argument. This year she's just not at that level of playing like an all star, let alone an all star starter. So she's getting the spot because she's super. And that's fine in her final season. I don't mind. That's not something I don't care. She's in the game. But what we brought up on the last podcast, I want to propose to you was that the WNBA should have treated this like it was Dwayne Wade's final season or during the final season where the NBA gave those two honorary spots on the all star team because they didn't want they knew the fans would vote for them because they were in their final year. And they didn't want to take spots away from players who were deserving because of the production this year. Yeah, that's my problem with having sub bird up there. So I mean, do you agree with me? My off base here? I mean, if you boil everything down to that three ball that suburb hit in New York to close that game, now it's just for that alone. Susan all star. I don't know. But I understand what you're saying about the honorary nods that dirt God and Dwyane Wade in those guys. And that probably would be better to do it that way because of the players who are, you know, statistically having career years and you don't want them to be sitting at home while they are all star games being played for the steak for the sake of nostalgia and respect of obviously. Player and person like suburb is. So I mean, I say, I don't know. I feel that, but she's an all star. I mean, I think Seattle is a different team with her, not on the floor. This season. But I also know that with Soviet files leading the league with ten boards a game prior to returning from injury. So I don't know how many boards she had in that Phoenix game, but I mean, if you can get ten boards in your final season and lead the league in that way. I mean, you're working hard. And you're staying steady and efficient and consistent, which, at the end of a lot of careers, consistency is not one of the words that's usually spoken. She had 14 points in ten years. Come on. Come on. So it should be pointed out too, like, you know, all right, it's still 36. Sue at 36. I pretty sure she made the all star team. Of her own merit. Right. Right. So it's like, I'm not saying, you know, my point is like, I just didn't think this year she earned that not. And we knew she was going to get the nod because of course she is a legend. Like, super the legend, that's why I'm not mad. I'm not mad about it. That's why I'm not indifferent. I'm not like saying what you shouldn't. Yeah, I just feel bad for a player like, you know, well, it's kind of like you can spend those talk about momentarily. I think Scott Dickinson was, we talked about her as a lock to be a starter on the last podcast 'cause she's been awesome. The only reason that Phoenix really, I mean, you know, has been pretty good this year and there's Phoenix has some good players, but the real reason that Phoenix is one any of the games they have one is because this guy would dig in Smith..

"jackie young" Discussed on The Her Hoop Stats Podcast
"Like, you know, I think she talked about her three on three experience how much, right? It changed the way she thought. And now she's just playing like, you know, all out all out all the time, like going fast, making decisions fast. She's turning the ball over a little bit, but I think you take that as a player on this team. And Jackie young's three point shooting has been incredible. Also, I just wanted to get this one style. I was looking this up while you were talking. So last year last year, Vegas three pointers made a 162 total. That was the last season. Last year. Okay. Through 8 games this year. 85 three partners made. Come on now, over halfway there. Shooting shooting the ball and to put a bow on the Jack young, she should be 50% from three. Come on, man. On a lot of reasons. That's like Katie Benson. 47% for her career at Marilyn. Anyway, I digress, but less than when you have a player like Jackie young, who is, I saw an article that said that she was being considered as in the MVP talk. We talk about that. What do you think about that? I know it's early, but I saw that article this morning. I was like, oh wow, you know, let's talk about that. So I think Alexa Alexa Philipp of ESPN wrote that front of the program. I don't think she's going to be the MVP. She's like, at the Tyra Banks, you're in the running to be the next top model. You're in the running. But the fact that she's being mentioned, I mean, what do you think about her at least being mentioned? Maybe not she's not the one, but maybe she, I mean, she's taking the jump from not being considered an MVP to being considered in the running for MVP. So what do you think about? I think she's she deserves a consideration she's been awesome. I think she and Alexa mentioned this. She's in the running for MIP. So most improved player, I think that is totally true. I do think eventually you're not going to have 50% of your threes, just like be a math, it's just not that feasible. But her defense has been incredible. And I think that's always been there for her. And now adding this other element to her game of shooting three is moving fast, making decisions, not having also to be the ball handler so much because Kelsey plum is doing more of the ball handling. I think what's happening is she's just in the role that makes the most sense for her. And because of the way the roster was set up and because of Bill laimbeer style last year, she wasn't. So yeah, I mean, I think she's the MVP now is not crazy. I don't think she will be at the end of the season because I think the MVP on this team is Asia Wilson if they want to go far, she's going to need to be the MVP. That part. But I don't think I don't think it's crazy. So what did you think about it? I mean, I was like, wow, like I hadn't considered it. So it made me think like, okay, look at her numbers. Like you said, 53, 50% from three. But I think she's just been that solid piece. And I think she's taken a couple of years to really get her competitive maturity at this level to be what the team needs. And maybe just maybe it's because Becky Hammond has the pace of play that suits her skill set a little bit better. And maybe that's why she's showing the way that she's showing and presenting herself in this manner. So I like it. I like to have the mental gymnastics of like, wow, I didn't see that coming, but okay, I see what you're saying. And that's kind of where I am with it. And I think if she can sustain that level of efficiency, especially from three, especially with people knowing that she is shooting that well from range, let's see what kind of defense has come her way as the year unfolds. And are you still efficient? You know, as we move beyond the all star break, like as we're pushing towards the playoffs, are you still that player? Who can knock in shots like that from range? And the other things that she's doing well too. But, I mean, I think that's most impressive that on the scouting report, it's like, yeah, we got to take three point shot away from her and she's banging them. I mean, that's respect to me, you know? And I mean, if you come out of the blue when you hit like four phantom threes, it's like, well, we didn't think they could do that. No, they know you can do that. And you're still not come in. So I always give a lot of respect to players who can operate without having a counter. Right. Right? Like you're operating in your gift without having to counter what your strength is and what the other team knows is your strength. Right? So I give a ton of respect to players who can still find a way to impact the game with their strengths. And I think Jackie young has been able to do that out of the gates. Yeah, and then one more thing on Jackie, I just obviously did a lot of research from Kelsey. Those two are playing together on most of the backup units. First off, love that Becky Hammond is just putting the starting lineup out there. The whole game. Like that lineup has played the most minutes of any lineup in the WNBA. Any 5 women line up in the NBA. I'm sure that will normalize out as the season goes on because they've been healthy the entire year and they've had everyone the entire year. Which is also huge. That's a big deal when you're looking at WNBA early season returns, like that is a very, very big deal of having everyone in there and healthy. But she's also pairing plumbing and young together a lot when they're not when it's not the full starter minutes. And those who have the highest offensive rating of any duo on the team right now. Wow. It's a great match and those two have the chemistry from that three on three experience and from playing together obviously with the ASUS for the last couple of years. But those two have that experience, you know, three on three, and I think it's really just like interesting to see how all of these players are taking those experiences from three on three from the Olympics from Jackie young playing in Australia. She's really grown her game there. You look at players that play that athletics unlimited. Athletes and limited excuse me. And it's been huge, right? Like I talked about Carrington for a second. That was big for her. So it's just interesting to see how everyone's coming back and upping their games from those experiences. Yeah, no doubt. And I mean, Natasha pot, I know she has said that that has changed her game and not just statistically or whatever, where she's second in the league and assists, but she has been able to really become more confident and aggressive, which we didn't think could happen because we always think of Natasha's big confident and aggressive, but she has really come into this season with a different level of confidence..
"jackie young" Discussed on WNBA Nation
"I know a lot of people are wondering, why don't we see why are we seeing more of Kennedy Carter? She only got 13 minutes and then absolute blowout. Las Vegas. But in those 13 minutes, she put up 17 points. We're seeing Olivia Nelson ado to get almost double the amount of minutes that Kennedy Carter is currently getting. Katie Lewis Samuelson also getting a lot more minutes. I know a lot of people are questioning where Kennedy Carter is. There's been videos. There's all these different theories as far as where she's fitting in on this team. Is it an attitude problem? They're trying to send a message. She just not been performing well. I don't know. I'm not going to get into all that. And if there's a lot of real story behind that. But I will say that Los Angeles better start figuring something out and start getting some racking up some wins here. They're going to find themselves in a really tough spot. Down the stretch, trying to get into a decent seed heading into the playoffs if they can make the playoffs at all at this point. So Los Angeles dropping 5 straight really, really looking like they're in a rough spot right now. So we'll see what ends up happening with LA. That's pretty much I just want to go over some quick results there. Nothing too crazy. Shout out right now. We've already mentioned her before. But Jackie young having an absolutely stellar season right now averaging just shy of 20 points per game. And her backcourt teammate Kelsey plum also probably playing the best basketball that we've ever seen her play. It's interesting that you bring in a Hall of Fame point guard as your coach and all of a sudden two of your number one picks in your backcourt, your two guards step up and end up being two of the best players in the league so far this season. I don't think that's a coincidence. What we're seeing at Jackie young and how to Kelsey plum. Some really, really good stuff there. So yeah, that's pretty much all we've got for you as far as those basketball results. I'm going to keep this pretty brief and keep it to maybe a quick 20 minute episode here for all of you. But biggest thing that we wanted to give a shout out to was a couple of those awesome results, obviously we wanted to bring your attention to Whoopi, our W power index, and why you'll be seeing some of that type of content coming out. Again, that's a computer. That's not one of us or Jason himself putting something together. That's just what the computer says. We'll be posting those here and there.

"I've been droning on way too long about all this stuff. So let's just talk about some basketball, shall we? First of all, I just got to give a shout out to the Las Vegas aces because goodness, this team looks just near unbeatable. They've had one loss that came to Washington, came against Washington a little bit earlier in the season. But since then, they've just been on a tear with their closest contest coming against Minnesota where they only won by 6, but I did a little math as we tend to do on this show. And I total up their 7 wins and their margin of victory. And I found the average margin of victory. So including that 6 point victory over Minnesota just a couple of games ago, including that, they still are averaging a 17 point margin of victory. It's not that there's 7 and one, and they've come away with a bunch of close games. And happened to be on the right. End of those with the ball bouncing just the right way at the end of the game. They've been dominant in the vast majority of their games. They just look fantastic. Asia Wilson looks like an MVP, Becky hem and is obviously doing fantastic work as the coach and goodness if Jackie young isn't having the best year of her career so far, she might just go out and win the most improved player. Really love what we're seeing at a Las Vegas right now. Big time stuff. Just really, really excited about that. Not to be outdone. Not to be how the Washington mystics are looking really solid as well. They took care of business tonight against the Atlanta dream by winning by 20 there in Washington D.C.. They did lose to Chicago on Sunday. They're not perfect, but obviously Washington's looking really strong. I've been really impressed with Dallas as of late. They picked up that victory over Connecticut. Earlier tonight and then prior to that, they got the win over Minnesota. They've played a couple of teams. Connecticut's really strong. They're always toward the top of our power rankings for this season. They beat Minnesota and they beat Phoenix. They've been on quite the tear themselves. They've won they've won three straight. They're sitting at 5 and two, Dallas is looking really strong. So those are kind of your top three teams currently really, really excited about that. Atlanta has Atlanta's drought to in a row. They start off the season four and three, but they just dropped their last two games, including this 20 point loss to Washington. Where Ryan Howard was actually held scoreless for the first time in her short WNBA career. I think believe she went zero for 9 from the field. I don't have that box score pulled up right now, but if I'm remembering correctly, she went zero for 9 from the field and didn't get a single point in the game. Rough outing for her, but Atlanta so far really has been kind of a surprise and a pleasant surprise at that. So excited to see what they've got going on there. A couple other things. New York in Minnesota faced off earlier tonight and that game kind of ended up going down right to the wire. Fortunately for Minnesota links, fans, they ended up coming out on top. But that game just felt so much like a battle of the two worst records in the league. New York has looked really, really rough lately. They haven't been able to put together two strong game for the last several games. What are they on? They're like on a 5 game skid right now. They've lost 5 in a row. They won their season opener and ever since then they haven't got another win. Rough stuff for the liberty right now. That being said, Minnesota was kind of in that same boat. They started off the season. Owen 6. Zero and 5, excuse me, on 5. And since then, they've won two of their last three, which is a little, that's pretty exciting for the links. They've started to turn things around. And hopefully we can continue to see Minnesota turn things around and make a season out of this. So there's kind of a quick rundown. Another scene that I will throw out and just mention really quick just because a lot of these other teams that I've talked about are just kind of they've been sitting kind of through the middle here or they're performing as expected like Connecticut and Chicago. Both usually taking care of business. But man, can we talk about the sparks for just a minute with sparks? They've also lost 5 in a row. They started out the season two and O, looking really strong. But ever since then, it has not been pretty for the sparks at all. Not at all. They've lost they lost to the aces on Monday in that game by 28. Prior to that, they had a couple of losses just by three points here and there. They're losing close games, and they're losing blowouts. And so it's not, it's not been really, really positive for this LA sparks team. When you look at box scores as well, there's a lot of question marks..

"Is that ace's remind you ever read the story harrison. Berge ron by kurt vonnegut. No okay well this is. I am as a quick aside. I am very bad with pulling random analogies that nobody understands the reference do so then it kind of side tracks basically harrison harrisonburg. Ron's like this. It's like a post post Electric thing every single human gets weighed down to make every person exactly equal. That's how i feel watching. Bill lambere coach las vegas aces and not letting them do things that make sense with modern offense because they just hold themselves back like i just feel like i'm on watch every single night like are they going to take more than six threes tonight. I don't know. I hope they do like it. Just it's i'll never forget. When i saw the quote at the beginning of the year when asia wilson was like. Yeah i think. I might take more threes this year and those like nope. I don't think so. Like i just don't understand it like it's so bad because it seems so good. This was fantastic. They just grind up people like absolutely beat the piss out of you. Kelsey plum is a joy to watch like running away with the bench But also like it's just like just take some threes man. It's not me trying to be annoying about it. It's just like we're at a point. It's twenty twenty one. This is the year twenty twenty one and we know the importance of like having the ability to space out just having the extra points per possession and having said that the aces are just about the best team in basketball of the sons son are obviously right ahead of them but yeah team is ridiculously talented but it almost feels like the hold themselves back in some ways and obviously i think it matters a little bit less than postseason scenario depending on how you look at it but yes that is my introduction so to this this acis team. They're they're one of the more frustrating watches even though they're incredibly incredibly good stylistically kinda love with the aces do because they're just big at every position. Chelsea gray is a really big point guard and jackie young it just muscles around everybody at the wing. Position asia's big and big. And like i mean trying to defend asia. Her jumper is impossible because her ablest excetera snuff. You're gonna foul her on that almost every single time and then you know you obviously have deer orca.

"Ever three three olympic competition yes three on three basketball mandates olympic debut in tokyo and while america's men failed to qualify. The women's team made up of wnba players. Stephanie dosen alicia gray. Jackie young and kelsey plum are now certified olympic gold medalists in a sport that is extraordinarily different from five on five. But not so different from what you might know from the playground because the game is played outside on a half court shots are one or two points and the games are just ten minutes long in fact my main complaint as laid out by justin peters a wise. Pc wrote for sleep. This week is that three actually. Isn't playground enough. Like why aren't the games. make it take it. Why can't the players call negotiate their own. Fouls peters also brilliant point here every single team. I agree should be forced to draft at least one player who just happened to be randomly wandering through the gym that day because the only way to guarantee the authentic pickup experience is to ensure the possibility that you might wind up checking a guy who refuses to take his ear pods out and also wearing jeans. Now you might say all of this is just a slippery slope towards olympic one on one and olympic knockout and honestly. Those are pretty.

"The angles understanding game a little. Bit more You hear a lot of coaches mike. Tibo the head coach at washington mystics. He said we're gonna go back to basics and do a lotta two three three and it's because you want those those basics and fundamentals to be sharp you want those reeds to be quick and when you move to five five if you've broken it down a little pieces of the game i it makes five a lot easier. And then you're able to make that entry pass a little bit better because he had that space but you also had great timing and you're able to make those reads. I think entry passes like a dinosaur right now. It's like they'll make good one and it's so frustrating to see that. But i think the more coaches go back to basics like that and get the three v three the angles get the court set in the trying role and and break things down that way. I think it's just so much easier to to play it so much easier. Also if young players are watching three three man helps them to analytically You know you're going to try to get the ball inside. Obviously i think. Stephanie dawson shooting. Seventy six percent from the floor. I believe if not wrong from the her stats dot com website. That's right. I think that's right. I saw that. I don't wrong. No that sounds ya. Us team is shooting. I believe sixty six percent from the floor in. They're holding opponents to under thirty five percent from the floor. So i think defensively to. It's a challenge. And i know stephanie dosen. Before they went over to tokyo she was talking about this with the chicago. Sky team have one of their games and had her on. Its own and i asked her. How has the three d. three helped you and she said mike conditioning. My reaction time and all of that has gotten so much better because of the three b. Three because i think she had just gotten back from that initial tournament that they had Right in the middle of the wnba beginning of the season there and she said you know. I just feel like lighter might be. I'd have to move faster so that's helped me when i'm playing with the sky so for me i think it's great and carry lawson's leading that team. I'm looking for another gold medal for her of this time as a coach. Obviously but i just think that you know the way that they operate together. Kelsey plummets shooting the lights out for them and spacing again goes a long way when you're playing three three but i think it's a lot of fine the speed like you said the talk second shock. I think that's that's that's a challenge but then again you can't hold the ball. The ball can't stick. You got to make a decision whether you're gonna shoot it or pass it or senator screen. You've got to do it right now. We're we're gonna. We're we're going on and i think when you have that in front of you i mean i think that's just the supreme challenge mentally just to keep things galley. It's the ma i to me. It's the most fun way to play basketball. It is also as in as a non not that athletic person I'm not i've never been. That in. Shape is trying to get out. Not having to run the full court. And i would ask of going to ask stephanie. It's appoint if she appreciates that as well because she is very much in shape. More in shape that i've ever been twice over but i imagine she's not like super super psyched about running all the way down court every time just to do But i think she's she's just perfect player for this. I mean because you like you mentioned studying setting a quick screen a quick strong screen and then moving and a. There's not a ton of players that do that better than stuffed dosen while being in that sort of conference your role in you're right. She shooting seventy two point three percent. So she she's doing she's making everything So is kelsey plum from two. They're just those two are carving people up and also to me. What i really like about this team in particular is showing off talents that some fans may skipped over. Or maybe don't know as much about Obviously custody plum. Kelsey kelsey plum. Jackie young as well jackie. Young's jackie young. We we both those players were number. One overall picks but kelsey just has injuries. When see you for a year. She was gone. Jackie has unless Has a different role. bless offensive focus with the acc. Kind of forget what she can do. Then you have steph. Tolson who i think is one of the most underappreciated players in the league For what she does at as a fan of bigs. We're we are fan bigs on this. Podcast we are always about. Steph does and then heavily chagrin who i think One of the best players for this situation where it's quick change from offense defense. I think she's one of the best one of the best player in transition because of that going either way which is the dallas wings and that's really translated to the three on three and she's really only she's the only player doesn't come out. you know. S interesting. I think when you have have all those other three players that are so good. The only that needs to be on the court at all times and care lawson's mind is alicia gray and i think not only. Is that complement chilly gray. I think it's an accurate assessment of what she can do for your teams because she does whatever it doesn't matter you mayor shoot. Three's she can shoot threes. You need her to drive. She can drive Hand on the pick and roll. She can do that. Jesus and a screen and the At least three and three she can do so to me. I'm really happy with the way this team has turned out And they are jim up in six and one They've loose uti. Remember the lawsuit. I believe it was with china. No they beat the nets with it was a twenty two eighteen laws to point that japan shop up by plum at the buzzer. She was going for the win. There was it. Do you have it. Deos japan so it was a campy. Yes the united states japan yet. My bad on that but yeah that was Yeah it was down the stretch they had. They had a great start in that game. They were up by seven or eight early and then they came back. In like i said blocked clump shot at the buzzer there to to hang on for that two point win so i mean i think that the us team is is definitely in the right place to get a gold medal. They have two games to win and get it done by. They didn't have katie lou samuelson when he found out just before they left for tokyo so sending allow love to her with the positive kobe tests and she could travel tokyo. So kudos to to care lawson for making the pivot having kind of change obviously personnel and the way that they probably had things setup to go to tokyo but still like you said six hundred one right now and still buying gold medal. They have france today today. not tomorrow. it's more. I don't know what time this whole asked tokyo. Being across the international date line is so confusing to me. Like yeah same. They're coming to us from the future. That's not struggle. I started the usa place. France at four. Am and if they win that game they will play at eight. Fifty five am eastern time tomorrow for the gold medal. Yeah so it will be in china and the rotc which is not russia base. that's rush russian athletes. That's the way. The russian athletes take on china in the other semifinal So we'll see. I think at the Nakas sit here and pretend to be an expert in three three but it is really fun..

The is really focused around enabling organizations to adopt and use during technology and their daily business operations really focused on empowering the ecosystem more generally within the overall you dear ecosystem manda Personally from background. Perspective and come from the world of the world of enterprise technology consulting and sales. I've done a number of large implementations and deployments with a number fortune five hundred organizations are spending across from a devops strategy to cloud operationalisation to supply gene inventory optimization via learning models and artificial intelligence and so i have a pretty widespread enterprise consulting background as i had mentioned most notably around the microsoft stack but have done work across long. Vm ware Across most of that relatively traditional it architectural stacks and twenty seventeen. I started to get more and more interested in crypto decentralized computing space and starting to get more interesting more interested overall for me he perspective and starting to pay really close attention chew how many enterprises and the people that i was interfacing with were really developing on ethereal and the overall platform and again The most recent that i had had was focused on consulting around service now and the mic stack and i saw how much microsoft was investing in jail their azure. You're deaf jet predicated on the theory ecosystem largely and i started just pay more close attention to began. How many organizations were really building with any theorem and had the opportunity late in two thousand nineteen to go head first into the game ecosystem and within the blockchain world and Got the opportunity over as a membership director at the ea starting in january and so twenty twenty has been quite an interesting year and been really needs deep by ever since really glad you were able to make it to the podcast. Today excited to hear about What you've experienced the sarum ecosystem and what things are going on at the ea. I don't. I don't know a ton about the serum enterprise alliance. Maybe a little background My perspective there wasn't much Thoughts about win crypto first came out you know of of making this Really tailored to enterprise Until a theory. I'm came out with a smart contracts and and things of that nature and then bencher price base really took to a theory in ways that i didn't imagine Initially it could you tell me a little bit more about the and what it is and who are the members and how how does one become a member. and they ultimate goal of the organization. Absolutely see that's about saddening and you're you're spat on as far as enterprises building any theorem. And i think that's largely predicated on many of the technological foundations the backbone of ethiopian and it being more of a developer focus application tom development focus blockchain competing system and as a result of that. That's why there's been such widespread adoption From enterprises and more emerging technology organizations like And from an ea perspective Really rigid with some founding members Back in two thousand seventeen Some of those included consensus. Gp morgun intel a number of others. Who are still very involved within the. Ea is well as a number of other organizations and what they're really focused on is having an ecosystem of best practices to build within the theory. Him from both aig Private permission boxing. Perspective to public may net perspective as well and The as was largely built dine. The enterprise theorem specification which we are now nearing version. Six of it and the specification is finalized. Which we're really proud of and that's really kind of morphed into the whole genesis of like corum that's been bill dead consensus and jp morgan. I'm now Formerly done under consensus. And that's where a liar lot. A lot of the work had been predicated on in the past and organizations. Join a again just to be with really like an expert network of people to kind of collaborate on the things that they're challenged with within their organization and how to take Some of the the internal capital and resources that we have our disposal and how to leverage that more effectively within one's own business and so we've seen a number of different creations within the ea from quorum with large built within the token taxonomy initiative free cell framework token taxonomy and building out smart contracts were actively from the business protocol which is hugely important right now and his gaining just a ton of momentum and excitement within the industry and now more again bringing in die each us which were incredibly excited about in. That was just announced on this past month on largely focused on creating registry around safe smart contracts so that users and customers that interface with can be more confident and reliable within the smart contracts that they're leveraging utilize utilizing a Let's go back to core. Would you say that is kind of the biggest win for the enterprise space and What what exactly is core. My i have a a little bit of understanding that it's was developed. I think initially by j. P. morgan chase and then Be behind consensus to do it and Now j. p. morgan chase Purchased that aspect of consensus. Are they working together. and corum is kind of a. It's a side chain to a theory where or is it. Is it a a completely separate based off of theorem blockchain. I wanna make sure. I do justice of this and i know that the consensus team and some others within the ea could even speak more intelligently and effectively to this but quorum is really built on like a is a private permission chain built on the enterprise etiam specification and so a number of organizations developed best practices around in enterprise etiam standard that could be trusted and relied upon within organizations and A number of these organizations where the kind of the genesis and the create creators of this and jp morgan was largely behind the creation. Corum early with In collaboration within members of the and notably consensus of course. And as of just over the last quarter i would say consensus acquired that in full and now is perjury even more closely with. Did you be more again arching team if you will Largely led by christine. Moy and the honesty in there and there's been a ton of exciting announcements relative to what their team is doing right now but Consensus has now brought in corum And what we're seeing within the industries who such a big movement Around utilizing obviously the public made net and many believe that that's the future will continue to collect you but what we're seeing is actual in live production. Instances we've seen the most modern work around enterprise right now and consensus has been a large driver behind that as well as a number of other organizations consensus driven that in a large way up to this point in time.
