We got the beach stepping stepping on Thursday on. Today's show Thanksgiving themed top. Ten forest should be fun. We usually do top five guys taking the top ten seconds already Eh. We will play a little. Is this news. I've got tweet of the night honors. But before we get into last night's game guys I wanted to let you know I fell down on the most insane rabbit hole last night because of something we talked about on. Tuesday's show we brought up the whole James Naismith family tree and the like. I couldn't let it go right because we were talking about Jimmy Smith being there at the arena on Monday night and then I add talked about Jeffrey Naismith in the Trivia show. I did what tasks about the ninety five raptors. Anyway I fell down this insane. Insane rabbit hole trying to figure this out and I wanted to just give you guys a quick report. Okay listen listen to this Dr Mollie broke it down. Oh Test Dr James Naismith. The man who invented basketball he had five children. Two of them boys named John Edwin Naismith though he went by Jack and James Sherwin naismith though he went by Jimmy. I'm not making any of this up. Wow so you're telling me to kids who both have James Double Double Janeane exactly amazing. Those two boys ended up having sons of their own. Now I think they had five in total one of Jimmy's was named after his granddad. James P. naismith he he goes by Jim. He lives in Corpus Christi. That was the eighty two year old man. The last surviving grandson of Dr James Amy Smith he was at the raptors game on Monday night. All Right now Jim Jim. He married his middle school sweetheart beverly and they started a family. They yielded four children and fifteen grandkids. I believe one of those grandkids. Kids was Jeffrey. The young teenager probably around thirteen years old at the time who through that ceremonial jump ball at the raptors inaugural game in one thousand nine hundred ninety five. He was introduced I remember. He was introduced during that game from Herbie as Dr Naismith. Great great grandson so there it is. I think that's sort of the family tree but men in that wild. It was a lot of J.. This was insane to figure out because they're all named like basically the same thing and then they all have these secondary names so it and then because just to add to this. There's a there's a yawn spelled I. A. N. he goes by Yawn and that it was the guy that do you remember when someone was selling the basketball rules Dr. Yeah I don't know maybe ten eight years ago something like that. That was him because he was one of the grandsons sons. So He's in theory Jimmy Smith's either brother or I'm sorry yeah either brother or cousin but anyway he He passed away now gyms and control. Yeah so he must have had a jump shot. That's why I didn't have a J. O.. Had you had to get that off. I'll be honest with you. I dipped into the family tree as well wealth as soon as I saw that James Naismith. Og James Naismith. His Dad's name was Jon Naismith. I gave up. I was like this is going to be too much. So have you consider changing changing your name to J. Maybe a jump ball like that idea. Got To put on a tie and glasses all right last night two games. That's it two games guys. I'm the clippers crush. The mavs one fourteen ninety nine in a game. That never really felt that close. Paul George scored seventeen of his twenty six points in the first quarter. Quite finished. With twenty twenty-eight eaten for Luca had is arguably his worst game of the season you turn the ball over seven times. He went over eight from three point. Range finished with twenty two eight and six looks all right in the box score but rough night impressive..
"james naismith" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"In New York City today I'm Kai Ryssdal it is Wednesday the ninth of October good as always avenue long everybody we begin today with the not entirely idle speculation of what James Naismith would think of the sport that he invented low these one hundred twenty eight years ago and the global economic context in which it finds itself we are of course a long way from the peach baskets that Naismith used as the original hoops and the global economy is nothing like it was in eighteen ninety one but a quick glance at the news sports or otherwise reveals basketball as the pivot point perhaps the biggest corporate story of this day National Basketball Association in the aftermath of a tweet from Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey last week supporting anti-government protests in Hong Kong the response from Beijing has been swift and clear an NBA fan event before a preseason game between the Brooklyn Nets and La Lakers in Shanghai has been cancelled a public training session for the nets also in Shanghai I also called off corporate Chinese sponsorships with the NBA Undone meanwhile the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Moore he has the right to exercise his freedom expression it is a big big deal the story with peril plenty so we got marketplaces and you're on the line to hash things out with US hey hey solar this is kind of basic but clearly it seems the basics have been lost in this the NBA has been for decades now one of the most progressive of profession all sports leagues do you suppose that somehow they didn't see something like this coming and if they didn't see it why didn't they see what will that's the and you're getting right to it right the difficulty here for the NBA is indeed it does want to be seen as a progressive league doesn't want to go off brand but the NBA also has to be three of its brand in China the brand is tarnished in the eyes of Chinese businesses of consumers that's GonNa prove difficult and costly for the NBA amity in China this is something that every American Sports League is GonNa take note of because they all see the money in China they want to do business there and even spoke with a sports marketing professor from China he kept telling me that the everyday business of sport in China it's market based right it's similar doing business in the as we all know that we've heard that one hundred times then he said just to be sure not to get on the wrong side of the government because then the market gets thrown out the window well that's that's so interesting so clearly the calculation that's happened here is that the Chinese government has decided it does not need the NBA's brand new basketball in China right because they're grown they're leagues and and they can in essence do with themselves no matter how popular Yao Ming in the Houston Rockets and all of those folks are over there but the NBA is it is the brand right Chinese basketball is NBA China basically when Yao Ming came onto the scene in two thousand and two the celerity of basketball in China skyrocketed because you had to do out there who looked like them you had two hundred million people watched that first game it's going to be so difficult for the Chinese government if they just want to say look we got this we're GonNa have basketball basketball is great here we have all sorts of stars it's going to be so difficult because the other thing is Americans who don't make it to the NBA go and play in China and so there's so much sort of meshing there with the NBA in China that's going to be so difficult for the Chinese to be able to do that let us take this away from basketball for two seconds because you're NBA is certainly not the first company that has run into trouble in China today there was a controversy with apple in one of its APPs let's people identified police in Hong Kong and the Chinese government is displeased with that there is wider risk there is also wider acknowledgement of some of the challenges of doing business in China tipping point do you think I mean you know spitball that for me that's what I kept asking the smarter people than I am about this when you're talking about sort of Chinese relations and things like that and it's funny because everybody that I spoke with says you know what these are hiccups and businesses are going to have to do better at navigating business in China nobody is saying they're going to pull out of China no business person thinks that because there's so much money there they just don't see an American company just pulling out because of difficulties so instead of let's get out of here this is a tipping point we don't want to deal with China it's figuring out how to do business better there and dealer cover sports in a bunch of other stuff force advocate ut in Austin Texas andy thanks a bunch appreciate it you got a guy random observation by the way just on the home market size dynamics of this thing by most estimates there are almost as many basketball fans in China three hundred million or so as there are people in the United States three hundred thirty million or so there is that all right we're gonNA leave sports behind for the moment and turn to the no less fascinating to some of US anyway subject of monetary policy the Federal Reserve released the minutes of its most recent meeting today I will spare you all the Fed speaks save this tidbit markets the minutes say and here's the quote were currently suggesting a greater provision of accommodation at coming meetings then they saw as appropriate they being the Fed here and accommodation being shorthand for lower interest rates so what that actually means that whole thing I just read is that maybe markets and traders and investors and everybody else are banking too much on interest rate cuts the next time the Fed meets next fed meeting by the way for the counter types on you the twenty ninth and thirtieth of this month so stay tuned as we always say about the Fed by the way down to the corner of Wall Street and broad on this rainy day in men atten sunshine actually we'll have the details when we do the numbers.

Pretty big market for the NBA, but Kevin pelton who writes about basketball for ESPN says it's not just people in Toronto who were cheering for the rafters, the rest of the country has jumped on board and the raptors have impressed in courage that with their slogan.

"Sam emailed, I wonder if I was wondering if your guests could touch on the role of money in all of this. I find the sport politics connection, particularly interesting in the ways that politics are brought into sport from those at the top such as owners and those who run the league's in the form of military, flyovers, White House, visits, etc. These things are done because it helps the league's generate revenue, but when athletes bring up politics, they are criticized Gotham Chopra, how would you respond to Sam? I think it's a great point. I think all of these leagues. I mean specially the NBA the NFL the ones we've been speaking about our multi billion dollar corporations, and they're generating a lot of wealth for a lot of different people. So the one of the fascinating things is exactly about that. National anthem issue. We suddenly feature at across the series. And you see the national anthem is such a big part of sports. And so the link and how that's been used to sort of market and wrap these leagues in the American flag. So the politics intersect, and it's a complicated issue. And what it means to fans versus what it means to owners and athletes are are slightly different. So I think it's a great point. And I think, you know, we we do see this owners somehow are often left off the hook the error allowed to do and say, whatever they want to you know, we can all see now who's been contributing to whose campaigns hetero, but somehow and athletes, and particularly African American athletes are outspoken. They take a lot of heat for on. And there's also some political issues that affect owners not a whole lot. But there are some. I mean, there's there's a football team here in Washington with a name that its owner, Dan Snyder has made very clear he has no interest changing no matter what every native American in the country feels. Yeah. This is what people have to understand the moment that there is a stadium built an arena constructed it's inherently political because they need tax payer dollars to do it. And so that means the vote. So that means politics is already there before you ever show up for one game. And a lot of this to whip. Once you started kind of digging deeper and looking at these relationships is that. As got mentioned a lot of this is marketing, the NFL has been taking money from the department of defense for years for military flyovers to market and sell patriotism players before I believe it was two thousand nine didn't even come on the field for the national anthem. So this is marketed purposeful patriotism that is being infected into the game because somebody's collecting a check. So for all these people who look at it as some kind of natural part of the game. It was always force because the one thing that the NFL considering the way they like to market themselves to family that was an easy tool because you talked to any coach, and they always tell you the three Fs with with football. Which is you know, I guess the order is it's faith family football. And that's a that's sort of a mantra in a slogan that they believe in the NFL. So that's how they're marketing this game to you. But is that kind of a reflection of what fans won't I mean, this this is the national anthem and they post nine eleven America. I think that's that. Event that tragedies is exactly what changed it obviously a terror attack on US soil. It changed the way that we all looked at the national anthem. It probably deepened a lot of a lot of those feelings. But make no mistake that it is a business relationship for the NFL. Why that is marketed the way that it is. And so I think fans may look at this emotionally, but understand that the leagues that are marketing this to you. They are looking at it as an opportunity to sell you speaking of that business relationship. It's interesting how the business relationship comes from the executive offices as opposed to some of the players themselves in terms of how engaged or disengaged. They are in politics. Gotham you focus in part on Michael Jordan in the second installment of the three part series. He did not speak up about politics. The way of players did I guess partly because he had so many endorsement deals as the phenomenon that kinda hit the scene. Gene, the particularly in regards to the Senate race in North Carolina in one thousand nine hundred ninety tell us more about that. Yeah. So Michael is an amazing character and cultural flashpoint, and when we talk about the fifty the sixties seventies, there's certain movements the civil rights movement, Vietnam that are more overtly political you start to get into the eighties and then later into the nineties, and there's a lot more subtlety and settled t to it where you also have as the greatest player, I think in the history of the game and not many people, including the greats of this year will argue with that. And you have this rise in the economics of the league television deals, and and just you know, the Lakers Celtics sort of take the league off of tape delay and put it in the mainstream. And then comes this David FOX, Michael Jordan's agent has this great line in the documentary says one thousand nine hundred four was fourteen ninety two because you have burned magic in the NBA finals. And then you have Michael Jordan drafted, and yes, Michael is an interesting character because what he represents culturally, but also because of. Who he is? And where he came from and how he grew up. And so when he's asked later in the nineties to sort of get behind this Jesse helm Harvey Gantt who's running against the notorious racist Jesse Helms, and he's sort of box at it. It becomes a thing. And. You know, it's sort of been hung onto him as a political statement. When in truth, it was probably a sort of casual flippin joking comment. But you know, it's it's something that stuck onto him. And that to this day people really talk about and we try to deconstruct that and it's complex because I think a lot of people, and I'm probably one of them come to his defense. Who says we'll why do we just assume that every black athlete now has to be outspoken, and and also the the cost and the risk at that time is not what you know, what we see today is LeBron James cardinal. Anthony, all these guys they can be outspoken, by the way, doesn't particularly affect it. Certainly doesn't affect the bottom line. Michael had a lot a lot at risk. I wonder how much just the fact that we're social media society plays into all of this. I mean, it seems like if you're Michael Jordan with the Chicago Bulls who won six championship. Rings in their day. It's easier to just insulate yourself from the constant twenty four hour barrage in your pocket people who are mad at what you said. Or didn't say your you said it, and then to me this is the beauty of this documentary is that. It does wind up kind of at least getting you to critically think about some things. Now, I'm the opposite. I have been very critical of Michael Jordan for his lack seemingly lack of public. Social awareness in terms of speaking out, however through this film, and and just seeing some of the footage realize that Michael's activism, every every level of activism looks different depending on who they who they are. And so they don't have to look the same where Michael Jordan elevator black athletes is with global marketing and being somebody because he was the face of a company in the face of an industry that he by extension was showing fortune five hundred companies and white businessmen and to some degree, you know, mainstream are to a large degree rather mainstream America that you can make a black man the face of a company and the face of an industry, and that is marketable and bankable that was his activism is that he was in control of his image and his empire. And so once I started to see it that way it helped me understand Michael Jordan and why he chose. Does not to be as vocal even if it's something as obvious as coming out against somebody who's an Torius racist like Jesse Helms Paulin Minnesota emailed. What about teammates? If you don't think that animosity builds you're naive. It does build players are drawing lines and standing on either sides of the lines as a coach or team owner. You would really not want this Gotham what about Paul's common? In terms of the players who choose to be more politically active the players who don't and whether that creates friction right? Well, so what we're talking about over the past hour is the inherent politics that are parts of these these because they're made up of human beings. There is an element of there is an element of sports and politics sort of giving us space from each other. And or sports giving us space. And so I think what you see one of the beauty of sports is that you can bring together people of every different complexion every ethnicity. Race socioeconomic class and put them on a team where they the great word is chemistry in sports, where they do put their politics aside, you know, whether it's for three hours or whether it's for a season, and and so, you know, athletes have and this happens with fans also when we go to games, we're all Red Sox fan. I am rejoicing in what is what is going on the last week? I could feel the globe through my here your phones and said, you know, that's one of the beauty of sports is a respite at times from all of these politics. And I think we should celebrate that I think we should enjoy that. But we shouldn't be naive to think that that necessarily. That sports is the place that it has to always be independent of politics. Well, here's what's so interesting about that I've been covering sports now for twenty one years, and when you talk to athletes, they will tell you that the locker room is actually a great place for those different kinds of discussions to take place and better equipped to handle them, then wider society than say us at our regular jobs because athletes have really honest with one another that's number one. And so they're able to get to these things on a deeper level. And even if guys are on different sides of the aisle, it doesn't creating create new friction and the other thing I'd like to bring up to is do you realize that there are guys that are playing alongside each other? Knowing other players have been accused of crimes have done very serious things, and they don't seem to mind plan with them. So I don't understand how somebody, you know, being pro-life pro-choice that that's going to all of a sudden anger somebody to the point. They don't wanna play with them. And they also realize their window is short the average NFL career last three or five years. I don't think that a guy is going to care about how somebody vote because he's trying to extend his career and make his money. Let me get to a few more of your comments before we are out of time. Mike in Kensington, Maryland emailed, African American players are speaking from the heart about something, they know very intimately racism I for one. Although I don't follow any sports think they should be honored not despised for this. Mark in Indiana emailed, the current White House and conservative media will accept support from anyone and conversely attempt to shutdown anyone with with an opinion that's not in line with their agenda ever heard of a guy named Kanye west. Another listener. Or tweeted politics have no place in sports. It's the one place people go to escape keep the game pure Jamal. I wonder if you could respond to this, particularly because I did a little you know, because Google is a thing. And so I asked the Google thing. I was trying to remember the guy who invented basketball Naismith, James Naismith 1891, Massachusetts. And so I go, you know, James Naismith basketball, 1891 Naismith, and I come on this link from the department of humanities Massachusetts about the history. Because the very first basketball game was played in Springfield, Massachusetts in eighteen ninety one doctor James Naismith, invented it. And it tells me that he invented the game as a way to teach Christian people, the true value of athletics. Apparently he was watching a football game. We're one of the players started Cussing, and then eventually went over and apologize. And according to the site from the state of Massachusetts the incident made such an impression on Naismith that he became committed to the idea that physical training could be a means of spreading Christianity. So there's something about the blending of sports, and politics, sports, and value, sports, and advocacy that feels anathema but that is baked into the game..

"Sport's most iconic franchises squaring off in this year's fall classic. We're traveling back in time to the early days of the World Series in the life and career of what the giants of the World Series, the one and only George Herman Ruth. We'll be speaking with bestselling author Jean leave you about her new book about the later in the show. But I if you've been watching ESPN recently it's been difficult to avoid the terrific documentary series twenty hours worth of talking on the air, Dan. Fluorosis basketball a love story. It's a history of the game and appreciation of the game told essentially in sixty two different short stories vignettes by one hundred sixty five figures from the game. Dan, Clorox has worked in this space before he's a Peabody award winning documentary filmmaker, and it is a pleasure, Dan to welcome you to the sporting life. Thank you for being with us. Well, thank you so much for having me, Jeremy emigrated Mirer view tire it, it's it's a no one is going to respect your judgement anymore for that. But so, you know, how do you even go about how do you even said about telling a story with the canvas as as fast as basketball's, you know? The first decision I made because I've been wanting to do this for quite a while is not to tell the history of the game because you need. I don't know eighty hours one hundred hours. I didn't want to present myself as a as a historian. I wanted to take a historical view of the game. And tell it in a short story format so I- outlined those stories that interested me, I felt would interest in audience and once I did that. And it's remarkably similar this is four and a half years ago. It takes me two years to do a ninety minute film. We did this twenty hours in four and a half years, which is and and I don't even use a computer everything is a long yellow legal pad. You know? And and I I I the stories though short stories then came up with the list of who. Who I wanted to speak to to flush those stories out. And then of course, Jeremy. You see what can work and watch not gonna work. What you learn what you could add I had creative freedom completely. So I was able to really play and go outside straight historical, storytelling speaking with Dan Clorox about his new documentary series, which you could see on ESPN basketball. Love story. Sixty two stories of varying length and tone. Told by scores of the most significant people in the annals of the game of basketball going all the way back to its origin story with doctor James Naismith and the peach basket at Springfield college. Western Massachusetts, one of the interesting things to me Dando. To a certain extent, unlike football, and unlike basketball, I'm sorry, none like baseball. The story of basketball as it as it sits inside the fabric of American society has not really been told. It's it's not. We we've tilled a lot of that field with baseball and football. Did you see this? With basketball's a kind of virgin territory. I don't know about virgin territory. But I, but I. I'm ABD in American history. And that means everything, but dissertation and. So the historical view of the game was critically important to me and to telling that I didn't want to open up which James Naismith, then I lose the entire audience. Not me, I love James Naismith. I don't love him. But I want to open them up with him and saw the third scene in films PJ getting choked with by by by spree. Well. Then I cut the Naismith, but the the historical view of the game the story of migration, the story of of southern migration story of immigration, the story of the demographic of the immigrants coming to the east coast and traveling to the midwest and the south very very important to understand because you know, I'm in New Yorker. And of course, we feel where the bash, but it's not necessarily true. No. Great coaches and teachers evolved, and there is situated in different parts of the country and the game meant different things to to young African Americans and meant different things to people in the mid west and different things to people in urban areas into urban groups, it's not an accident that the Jews and the Irish in the northeastern adopted the game because talion mostly playing baseball. So these things mattered as did and does continued history. I show the effects of the Cold War on the game and the United States rushing and Olympic competition. I show the effects of the war in Vietnam in the civil rights movement on the game not merely on the Olympic movement in sixty eight. But but actually what it's going to mean today fifty years later will there be another black boycott in? Fifty years since one thousand nine hundred sixty eight history and basketball critically connected. The women's game. I went in Jeremy. Knowing I'm not boxing women into seven minutes story. You know, they're going to be integrated throughout the entire pieces. Nineteen women and my point was correct. The first time we put a camera on a woman. And then you hear the voice of the outsider the excluded American. That's what women were right? And the judge as ethnic groups were, and that's why I think the sport is so appealing to so many that in the nakedness of it. No helmets. No shoulder pads. No caps. Sunglasses. You see and feel the player, and you believe that they actually see and feel you the new film from Dan chorus is basketball. A love story. You could see it on ESPN on television on the app. Dan date you for joining us. It's been great chatting. My pleasure. Army.
