"But it wasn't satisfying this sort of creative piece that I hadn't right. I wanted to write about things I really cared about. And I, you know, I like basketball, but not like at least skiing, man. Nothing like scheme. There's nothing like it in the world that does the same thing to me or makes me feel the same way. So I always wanted to write about And so when I finally figured out a way to have a platform with sub stack when I read about subset, this is it. This is how I do it. I was very excited. So the enthusiasm wasn't a problem. The time is a big problem. I have two kids and I sort of trained myself. I've never been a morning person, but I trained myself with my son was born about 5 years ago to get up around 6 without an alarm. So wake up every day at 6, I just start writing. And with COVID, I don't have to start work till 9, right? And then you have the whole evening. You know, I'll send an email and stuff here and there during the day. But for the most part, it's evening. And then on weekends, I still just wake up early and just write. So it takes a while. Each post takes about 6 or 7 hours. You know, that's either a podcast or a just written post. And for whatever reason, that's just the amount of time it takes, no matter what I'm trying to accomplish. The last thing I'll say is about the reporting piece. If you compare me to someone like Jason blevins, who's amazing. I'm not doing good reporting, right? I've built a sort of rolodex of folks who I can reach out to. But there's a lot of things I'm missing. I don't do a good job of getting the perspective of the skier. You know, I have a lot of corporate contacts, but like I said, they have media training and they're just much easier to just reach out to and paying. So he's like, ideally what I would get you if I had more time, right? Right now I don't put myself anywhere near that level. I can occasionally what I have tried to professionalize it a little more and because I realize a little while ago that sometimes when I write these things, it would be to my benefit to get another point of view because the rep from a very big ski company reach out. I mean they're like, you know, they're starting to think that you're just attacking them. And I'm like, all right. I never thought they'd be reading this, but maybe it's time to more proactively reach out. So I have tried to do that a lot more. I think I have a lot of growing to do in that area. And I think that what that would take is more time. And I don't see where that's going to come from with the full time job. Little by little. When people say that you're because I get this obviously often when I'm attacking a ski resort or I'm talking about as skewers or I'm offering an opinion, does that impact the way that you look at your own reflection of them? Does that really matter to you when someone's like you're attacking, especially to me, for example, when I'm just using them as an example, a veil resort to reaches out to me and is like, we don't like what you said, or we have opinions or thoughts on this. We'd like to talk to you more about this..

"Why would they lay it all out there when you when you haven't given them a legitimate chance. who knows. Maybe they feel like luca and porzingis are good enough to win a championship. So they're just trying to get some quality guys veterans some really good role players around them. I mean maybe this. maybe maybe. That's challenge johnson was just happened to all.

"I know it's on nba store dot com. But that's not actually run by the nba. So it's not like some sort of rumor paperwork or whatever got leaked or something fanatics dot com is just a whole other business and somehow they knew to put this jersey online. I don't know like haibin. yeah. I don't know i don't know if maybe it leaked then. The mavs relate crap if we sign him. We'll get investigated for tampering. May maybe it is just that. But that's just weird. Do you think they're still going to get him. I don't know we're too busy signing their wesley. It won't do news kill you. You got me all hyped up you were like the mavericks are closing in on a deal for a wing. I thought you were going to say wesley. Matthews signed the lakers. Okay no but yeah. I thought you were gonna say something about Bogdan bogdonovich puts you know what the advanced numbers show that. A juan do is a winning player and and he can't even play more than fifteen minutes on the magic so he's definitely going to help fence defensive box plus minus. He was zero literally. He's not gonna probably not gonna play for jefferson. Yeah yeah because we need some depth on the bigs though yeah we got a guy coming off a torn achilles we have another guy who can't keep his knees well then maxi maxi can't stay healthy. Yeah once he plays more than twenty games needs to rest about taking to recuperate. I am you know it's like i'm trying to. I guess i'm trying to be realistic. Also acknowledge what the mavs did. But then there's the other part of me that is that is still bothered like realistically again. They didn't have cap space. They would have had to get really creative. Which is so simple. And i'm not done yet. Okay so they will. They didn't have kevin space. They would have had to get really creative. And maybe even those players maybe they offer those players a contract and they just weren't interested okay so there's that There's the other part of that. They did actually josh. Richardson is a good addition. James johnson is a good addition. I'm not going to get super high on these guys because they might not even be here next year and like look lawn right and justin jackson and we tried to. Your mom tried to spin that as like these guys are whatever and then they just dump them. This offseason. So i don't. I'm not like super high on what's going on but they did and i get it. You know what those are good moves. Josh richardson i is a good move. So there's also that. I'm trying to acknowledge but just bother that. We still prioritize cap space. I don't think that's the right way to build a team and like i'm not saying anything stupid. I'm not saying you sign nick. Patou thirty million a year or you some of these about your employer. But i'm saying yeah guys that are available you know good deals like try to make those moves and i feel like even those samaritan zainuddin to wyatt. How old for ten million a year. He probably didn't have another offer. They got him for value. Their evaluation is weird. It's weird yeah. I think one thing. I said earlier today is how do you expect the players to go all out when you don't go all out like when this is products that you put out there when this is the roster that you give luca. Why would you expect him. How can you expect them to fight. Whenever you're not giving it all you've got yet now. Maybe maybe you haven't given them a chance to win a championship. Why would they who knows..

"I know that we complain about free agency every year. But it's just the same thing happens well in trying to balance trying to be realistic again. They did not have cap space. That is a reality is not like they could just sign whoever but at the same time i'm like i don't know maybe they could. I mean we're going to sign bogdan bogdonovich in a sign and trade for a guy that they later just waved. So if the mavericks wanted bogdan bogdonovich they could offer the kings trey burke or joran or whatever any of these dudes that are never going to play and they could still and still do it another thing the whole trey burke thing i really liked trey burke i really like what he did but did you have to rush and use your cap space to sign him. It's not like he had a line out the door waiting. He wasn't even on the on a team. When you pay tim up. You didn't pick him up. It hasn't been really have breaking news. Okay the mavs are closing in on a deal with free agent wing wesley. One do a one. You won't do. I feel like you just died. Who judging by the picture. He used to play for the magic. Lemme fire up fire a. What's this called basketball reference. Wes one do. he's a two year player. Played for the three year played for the magic for three years he played eighteen minutes. He's a small forward averaged eighteen minutes a game last year and all about five point eight points and two and a half rebounds thirty four percents shooter you know. They said they weren't done yet. They were going to be aggressive. And they're showing it the their aggression they're they're signing bunch of guys can't play anyways. What were you saying about. What's going on a rant burke like oh yeah you have to rush into trey burke and i definitely wanted to keep him but it just sucks that they had to use some of their some of their mid level. Yeah and it's like you didn't have to. You could have just waited. Yeah sign somebody else. And then bring him back on the veteran's minimum. Yeah which can do regardless of your cap space. It's like nobody else was going to sign him. If you did not pick him up he would have been done. His was over. He'd been planning europe next year. Yeah so like you were like signing sign of you like like he was gonna get picked up by another team. It's just ridiculous like why not. Just wait what do you think's going on with paul. Millsap thing like are we going to talk about that how his jersey leaked on in the nba store which is run by fanatics dot com. Which is a business. So it's not. Like.

"Right push dry bush. Yeah so it would be luca josh. Richardson hardaway james johnson. Kristaps Except for to start the season because chris. Oh yeah you'll have powell. Yeah if he's back he should be back. Yeah i mean you know josh. Richardson defensively again. I mean he's he's good he stays in front of his man. He's very he makes defensive. Plays that like when harder. Yeah it's surprising. And i think it's a combination of athleticism and long arm instincts instincts. Sometimes he he knows where the offensive player is going. His instincts his His footwork he's able to stay with his man really well. I mean. i think he's going to help a lot. Defensively another thing about james johnson is his strength and one problem with dorian is his he gets pushed. Her last little thinner gets me arouses guy. And he can't guard lebron and kawhi because they just out muscle him and james. Johnson's got the strays bigger. Yeah he doesn't get pushed aside. It gets pushed around so i think that's another reason why he should be starting but carlisle loves him some dory yeah i mean dorian too but you know obviously anytime. You're not a championship team. That means that you can improve in every area. Just you know to varying degrees in each area but just in every area so yeah i mean. They got improve somewhere obviously because they didn't want to ring last year. Dorian on the lakers wouldn't even play or on the clippers. He wouldn't even get off the bench. He would be the fifteenth man. So that's the kind of talent that you need on your team to win in. That's what the mavericks value dorian as the fifth starter on a championship team whereas every other championship team is like We would cut him. They do weird values which i mean. I like dorian to want him on the t. and i love maxi Seth i loved. I really wind hub like it's hard to say you'd have to trade dorian or i don't know like it would hurt. Nobody wants story. Also if it makes you better it's like oh you gotta do what you gotta do. And it's like it's you know but that's the thing nobody wants dorian so you'll hey we'll give you dorian for vogue on who i don't know if he's built a reputation yet. 'cause he's like tony snell out there now. The team that has tony smells like hey we really like tony snow but everybody else is like that guy that i don't even know what to say about him that i on your team like. Oh that's tony snell. I didn't know that i've heard the name before Yeah so. I dunno. I mean again..

"Why don't you give us jalen brown. That's how it works. But and all these other teams and that's how they keep getting. That's how the lakers keep getting good players. And that's how milwaukee was able to trade for true holiday because they're signing good players that can be used in trees now. Yes they gave away three picks. The point is you gotta have assets. So it's like. I know talking about it every summer. And maybe either gets old to hear it. It gets old to be a part of it. But it's just they did get better. And i like josh richardson. I like what he brings. He's not the second star that we were looking for. But he is a little bit better James johnson he's in like taekwondo or something i get it. It's great. he's the enforce it but the reason the reason they got those guys is because they're cap flexibilities and that's what bothers me and that's and that's what i mean. It bothers me that they don't even give them a chance to win a championship. Because they wanna keep their max cap space and it bothers me that that's their priority. Because i don't think that's the way it should be done. No it will. And if i were in short i don't get it and and you know whatever like they're going to be better now. I think they're starting lineup. Shoot include our new guys that we got and james johnson yes. I think the starting lineup should be luca. Josh richardson at the to hardaway to three james johns james johnson at the four and porzingas at the five james johnson has traditionally come off the bench. Well yeah in his in his career. The thing is with all due respect he's just better than dorian is like numbers. Wise okay debatable. Dorian is a nice player. And i'm not saying james. Johnson is a huge step ahead. But one thing that you need for porzingis is. There's a certain type power forward that you gotta get in my personal opinion. The best prototypical power forward to have next to porzingis would be erin gordon because you have the size at six ten. But he plays like a guard. Both offensively and defense. I mean kind of. Like dwight powell. Just oh god no better no. Well we'll why do i fly in. And i want you deny that play that can guard wings and guard and still play the four. So he's still big but he plays small okay so he's strong. He's big but he can when he gets switched onto abroad or it's actually yeah exactly just like maxi but someone. That's a little bit stronger. Better so maxie would be a perfect fit excite him. It's the same thing with josh richardson. Like yeah the type is there. It's just the skill level. You know the talent level is not only depot. I think deepa when he was good would have been a perfect shooting guard. Yeah yeah so. But i think the starting lineup should be that because i think it gives and size another thing. The mavericks lack right now is size. I know porzingis's seven three. But he's a pencil so you need to have a little bit of muscle and dwight powell gets moved around. Like he's a ride he.

"And i think that's what these moves did now. They got better. I think james. Johnson and and josh richardson make the team. Better defensively especially an toughness. But it just wasn't what i wanted to see like. I felt like there were some guys out. There could drastically improve Your roster and really go for next year but yep and they don't. They don't sign long-term deals and i and that's frustrating. Because you know the good guys you have to sign them to long-term deals like some of the guys that we had talked about danilo gallinari mommy's that's gonna be a long term deal bogdonovich who still available at this point. At least that's a long term deal and because they don't sign long-term deals that eliminates like ninety percent of the players billable and good players. Well and i know people are going to be like well. They don't have cap space. Cast spaces a load of crap. It's a figment of matching. Yes like look at the past. The warriors got kevin durant with no cap space. The heat got jimmy butler with no cap. Space the lakers were able to get anthony davis. I mean it's just it wasn't a signing but still yeah get the point if you wanna guy and he wants to come here you can make it hard that you need to do the cap space thing they they. There's okay so this is where the i love advanced analytics but they take it too far. It scares them away from certain players say overvalue on it good players. They overvalue players. That aren't very good because advanced wise they give a positive and the win column but guys that are actually good that actually can put the ball in the basket on a regular basis or the point score points which actually matter but the point is you gotta have assets to get assets and so get as many assets you can and then if it doesn't fit you can use those assets to get players in that fit your team i..

"I think what you tell. Richardson shoot it or drive it. Yeah that's it. Don't worry about getting somebody else and open shot. If you catch and shoot shoot it if closes out and you feel like you can check attack attack it other than that. Just go out there and have fun. Don't run a pick and rolls for him. Yeah luca's going to have to carry the offense again. yeah. I think like. I was saying at the outset like this style of player is there so just naturally. I think it fits and make sense. But because he's not really like the caliber that i think is ideal. I don't know what exactly his impact is going to be offensively. I think he fits but and he does make them marginally better. But i don't know if it's gonna be like astronomically better than what i think. It's it's definitely a huge improvement in my opinion at the shooting guard. Because really like having. Tim hardaway at the three Because he's just a catch and shoot guy so the shooting guard. You want to have a little bit more playmaker. Yeah and really's. Seth would have been that guy to stay healthy and play defense. Yeah and it's not even it's just. He lacks athleticism and quickness. And what we're finding with. Luca is you need to have quick athletic guys. That are playing next to him. Because if you don't then you have to. Everybody is too slow. You can't guard anybody and josh. Richardson is six but he's long and he's he plays smaller. He's really quick on defense. Yeah he's really well in an like offensively. He's crafty with he gets shots. He's a thirty four percent shooter. That's about the same weather it's a catch and shoot or a pool up. That's pretty much what he shooting But yet jason made it clear in this interview from three correct. Yeah yeah yeah sorry. Yeah he made it clear in this interview that again. His biggest impact is going to be defensively like he talked about what he can do. Offensively he was you know again. He's like really where you're going to see. The impact is on the defensive end. So just to give context to the defense. Because i do want to talk about what we've seen from watching the film because we watched like a good thirty minutes of josh. Richardson expert so we pretty much know what you need to know but just to give you know instead of just going by the tests so for example his defensive box plus minus last year was a negative point. Four which is good you want negative defensively and then if you look at his defensive stats in terms of the way that he affects shots so overall a players. Shooting percentage dropped almost three percent win guarded by josh. Richardson player. Shot forty two percent against him and then onto pointers. They're shooting percentage dropped by four point. Five percent okay. So i mean he's definitely a good defender and then we can talk about what we saw just from watching the film but i mean the numbers show that he is a defender and that he will be able to help on that end. I like josh. Richardson trade. i really do. I think I think is three point. Shooting percentage is going to go up a little bit like he did with tim..

"I do think that he can attack close out so because he is a good three point shooter last year. His percentages weren't very good. And i think a lot of the headed do with this spacing. We watched some highlights on youtube and every time he drove to the lane. It's clear sight because embiid and you had exude no spacing. Jason talked about that. How like playing. Next to ben simmons. There's a lot of hurt. richardson offensive. So i think he'll his offensive game will improve when he comes to dallas. Just obviously because most players do it. Just because of the system the spacing that the mavericks run and luca and lucas zeal. Porzingis ages create so much attention. So i think he'll be more of a catch and shoot three and a guy that can occasionally attack close out whereas hardaway if he doesn't get that open three he's typically has to pass it back out and re- rerun it but with josh richardson. I think there's more opportunity. If a close outcomes he can attack it and make a play. yeah. I think that's a good word to attack it on pensively he can actually take advantage of that and make the defense papers. Hardaway doesn't do that now. Hardaway is still very valuable because of his ability to hit catch and shoot threes at a high level. He can rise up above the defender. So if you're close out is late. He still has the ability to get a shot off ray and he really does just play well playing with luca he does so. I think it adds that defensive guard really. It's it's deal on two point zero. Because this is what i think they wanted to lawn right to be. He was projected to be this on ball defender shutdown guy who can make plays and he just couldn't do i take the one thing he was really good at was helps. I defense he. He was too slow laterally. He can't stay in front of the quicker guards and he couldn't make a play because life defendant dhillon struggled with his decision making and and so that was another thing. Jason brought out in this interview. Was that you have to keep josh. His decisions simple So because he kind of struggles with that so again like you said i think his biggest impact will be defensively which we'll talk about but there's a potential that he can help with take not even like taking. Some of the offense not often luca be an option. Yeah i don't think. I don't think the mavs got that guy this year in free agency. I think they improved with josh richardson. But i don't think they got that secondary playmaker. I think the majority of the the offense is going to be run through luca..

"They have similar passing ability but hookah can hit that. James harden step back that ben simmons quite frankly just can't which changes the geometry of the opposing defense. So i think there's i think there's some upside to his raw production but real really. I think you're gonna see the benefits on the other side where we're dallas was trying to just outscore folks Last season. I think you've now got a guy who can't be hunted on defense said Cancer of b. stout on that end not a big turnover creator blood. I think they did. Net rating is what you're gonna see a benefit to versus the offensive rating. So he's gonna gonna help. You can son always i. I was able to see. I saw luka in person re times last season was in dallas for a game. So you know he's certainly a a unique talent in the in the nba. I think josh is the perfect secondary piece in the back court for an interesting okay. Well those are all good things to hear like that. I like hearing that what he brings on defense because like you said the mavs they had some during any smith did a good job. Obviously kristaps is a high blocks guy but they really did need more defense on the perimeter. So i'm looking forward to to seeing how josh can can help with that. That's all. I got a lot of great info. Thank you very much for sharing your insights. Do you want to tell people where they can find you if they need sixers news or if they want to ask more questions about josh richardson where they can find you online. Sure show at on twitter. J. blevins Nba on twitter We have On on our website the painted lines dot com. We do sports. Nfl mba all four major sports plus the mls and our youtube channel. The painted lines do a bunch of draft content with a bunch of nba stuff For our youtube so the painted lines Is our platform and appreciate you have meal. Yeah awesome thanks for being on so based on that interview I think that josh. Richardson is in a way. The kind of player that the mave that you need next to luca a playmaking guard. That is a good defender now. I don't think josh. Richardson is like at the level that we wanted. I mean obviously he's not bradley. Beal or victor victoria depot or as a playmaker. He's not zach levine. As from the point of view of the way that i've used levin but he's the style of play that you need so just that in itself i think will help. He can make plays with a ball. Jason brought out how he's not really a pick and roll player. Which kind of was a little bit of concern for me. Because the mavericks run so many pick and rolls but honestly just if he can make plays with the ball. He described him as a downhill old school. Kind of guard where you can use him as an outlet and then he can then attack the close out and make a play for himself or for others. So i think that's great. Obviously hardaway is a really good score. But it's it's the way that he scores that we talk about. You'll see hardaway is really a catch and shoot. Maybe one to trigger. Pull up like he can make plays driving into the lane but it's just not his strength and so we've talked about how a guy that can make plays with. The ball is better even if the numbers are the same the output. It's the way they score. That has a bigger impact and josh. Richardson is that kind of player. Offensively yeah. I don't know if the i don't know if i'm getting too excited about his playmaking ability for others..

"What they wanted to know about him. Some of them were concerned about consistency. Was that an issue in philadelphia. Well he had a couple of lingering injuries. I don't think Effort consistent effort or concentration was an issue. I never saw that. You know in my interactions with him really from the summer before training camp through camp and for the season in the locker room. He's very even keeled. Very cool customer. I never saw highs and lows emotionally so while he his ability and knock down. Shots wasn't super consistent. Level of effort was always there. You know concentration was always there no i. I wouldn't worry about josh being someone. You can't count on night in and night out in pretty pretty even keeled personality. That's good to hear it's one thing like you want a player. That's that's going to contribute on the court. But you don't wanna have to deal with a bunch of locker room steph is. Sounds like he's a good locker room guy barrier locker room guy always available to media time. Some guys know how to dodge us in in that we get we get like point. Five minutes right where players are are theoretically available guanaco to us and in some players know how to dodge that in by getting the side and the training room or variously. Josh was never a guy that did that right. He always made himself available He wasn't seeking the spotlight but Never should duck that Never heard a bad word about josh In practice facility about from teammate coaches were Very positive about josh. unprompted bring his name up. So i don't think you have a problem at all from a culture standpoint whatsoever. I think he's a. He's a really positive culture guide. Okay let's get to here okay. I think my last question. Do you think that josh's game will change any with luca. Is there any way that you think being in that system will make josh better or should we expect maybe the same numbers or maybe less because of how his role changes. What would you say. No i i. I like the fit from a number standpoint. I think you can expect a little bit more. He's probably fifteen sixteen point per game guy. His efficiency will probably increase.

"In philly last year. So you know he's time your tertiary option offensively but on -fensive and he's pretty versatile and gives you a lot on that end and i think that's quite frankly dallas in each one. Okay so let's let's talk about his defense. What like how good of defender is he. What is he like on defense. Yeah so he's a six six cow extent wingspan. he can defend. He's not a guy that's going to get haunted. He can certainly defend on his own. I don't think he loved the scheme in philly where there some complexity to the to the point of attack rolls on pick and roll off screens on whether you fought through a screen or whether you switched on everything like e certainly a credible man defender fee in in anyone under servier. Your formante style. So you can put him on you guys. That are six seven or below and he can be a certainly credible man defender in those areas. Okay so I was thinking like in the west. There's guys like damian lillard and you re westbrook if he stays a devon booker. You know those kinds of guys. Is he good enough to defend your that all star high-calibre player or Maybe is he better suited for someone. That's not quite as talented as that. Yes a great question. So we'll booker. I think he matches up fairly well with dame lillard is really a tough match-up for anyone but there's a big size disparity and quickness and i think the other thing i was talking to someone else earlier about the bible makes it so hard to evaluate defense because everyone there you don't have twenty thousand people in the arena. Said the distractions are so lessons. Hard to guard anyone in the bubble Tj warm up fifty points but he. He's roughly in the same size. Category as devon booker. I think he would do a credible job. On on booker dame lillard can just score so many different levels and you moving side front back. Somebody imagines he's a tough match-up for anyone but he's probably you know if you look at them mavericks rossler. He's probably your best option against a guy like that. Okay so it sounds like. He's not a lockdown defender. But he's probably the guy that most teams would put on those kinds of players. You talked about him. Playing with luca fit. That was one of my questions is what do you think is his ideal role on a team. Either just from what you know of him. Maybe what you know of the mavs. Where do you think he fits in best or what would be the best use of his skill. Yeah i think you want to look pretty much operates a at the top rate. Wer breaks a guy down. And i think josh operate pretty well from the wings and can attack closeouts on a kick out the the the key really is to give him a as many simple options as possible once he gets into into the pay. You wanna give him some drop off options above options so that he's not settling for the fourteen fifteen foot difficult plumps but really. That's what you're looking at right. You're looking at an above the break kind of player who is a kickout option that attack closeouts and puts the opposing defense into scramble mode. That's where you're hoping for. But i wanna i wanna be clear like he's he's not really a point guard right. He's he's certainly secondary ball hammer. That makes sense. I mean it makes sense why the mass would want him. Luka is obviously running the offense but what they needed was a secondary ball handlers so it sounds like that's he fits in that role perfectly. Do you think some fans on twitter..

"You come out at him but he can then put the ball on the floor attack and close out and get into the teeth of the defense when he isn't really is a pick and roll initiator. He's not really a point guard. He is much more of a downhill. Guy is serve your classic old school shooting guard in the center of the mid nineties. To the mid-2000s okay. That's an interesting point. The maps do a lot of pick and roll but really what they need is just a guy that can make plays with the ball. Even if it's one on one if you had to think of a player that he similar to in style can you think of one. Like maybe not necessarily the same skill level but just his scoring style so i mean he's your classics six six two slash three downhill guy. So i mean you could look at not less powerful less explosive version. Russell westbrook is a You really have to. He's kind of a throwback player. Honestly these kind of guy that you know. Let's say dion waiters before he journal the the the air out of the ball. He he's not gonna is not going to consume a ton of possession time but he's also not a guy that's super quick decision maker is not a guy you want running your offense but when you have a sixty six seven six eight point guard He's a good. He's a good fit next to a guy like that. Right okay can even get downhill with the all. Okay so would you say he is like a a secondary score or is that too much for him which you make him like your third option on offense. Well i think he's a really good third option when you look at pushing us and luca. He's not a guy. I think you know he had his max per game was sixteen a sixteen points per game last year at miami. I think he's scored thirteen or so as a third slash fourth option.

"We have a new article up on Players the mavericks should target for sign intrigues Thankfully like ninety percent of them were signed as soon as i published. I publish it like two hours before. Free agency started. But there's still some good ones on their bogged on. Bogdonovich is one of them so we can talk about that And then there's another one on other just general free agents. i think they should target Anyway so that's the site. Youtube channel is dallas. He was cast. Post the pod there but i also post short clips. So if you're not into a forty five minute episodes you can go to youtube channel and you'll get like three to five minute clips of basically the best parts of the show which but also listen to the whole forty-five minutes because it's all good okay. Free agency started and things are happening. The mavericks made a trade for josh richardson from the philadelphia. Seventy sixers we're going to share our thoughts on him. But i wanted to hear something for my guy or from somebody. That's been watching josh richardson. That knows more than just you know watching the highlights on youtube. We've been doing so. I talked to jason blevins from the painted. Lions dot com. He's as sixers reporter and so he knows the team. He's in the locker room so there's an interview i'm gonna lead with that. And he talks about richardson's strengths and weaknesses. Offensively and defensively. What we can expect what his what his fit will be like. So let's get to that interview and then we'll talk about what we think are what we expect from josh. Richardson okay. I'm here with jason blevins from the painted lines dot com as well as espn radio. You cover the sixers. And so i figure the perfect person to talk to to learn more about josh richardson. Who the mavericks just acquired via trade. The first thing i wanted to ask you was actually just how you felt when you first heard that he was getting traded. Were you sad. Were you in different. Like.

"Friday night Beer Show and Jason Blevins and Jim Gogan Bach in from Zach Brewing. And Heaven forbid that this would happen, but We were kind of talking there in the break about, you know, people a CZ faras. The patronage is concerned and employees and stuff like that. Everybody's kind of on on eggshells and pins and needles about you know, Is there going to be a second wave and stuff like that? If if there would happen to be a second round of this, whether it flares up later this summer or flares up again in the fall. Would you be able to whether that to be able to shut down and re open again and I get it if you really can't answer it, But I mean that that's It's a very realistic concern, and I get people nobody wants to open up too quick and blow all the hard work and sacrifice that people have put into trying to get the economy up and rolling again. But it is a very realistic possibility, too. And I guess you know we opened the show talking about you didn't have a plan for the pandemic. I guess we all kind of know that this is ah, possibility. So has there been some five point in tow? God, we got to go through this again. What are we going to Dio? Uh, yeah. I mean, it's I think I worry more about this kind of thing than maybe even Jim does that for its I'm more of the worrier about things, but You know, it's it's a real possibility. Um, we, you know, I think in the restaurant, so if we talk more about Italian village, you know, restaurants pretty much run. You know off just the revenue the Reagan every day. And so I think that's why it hit the restaurant industry so hard because there is there is no extra cash. You know its its revenue that just kind of keep things going, and that's how you pay everything. Um You know, Would we be able to weather it? I think that we would be able to make a few decisions a lot faster. One of the things that we already have running right now is all the online sales. So all of that has already set up. We're still doing it now. I think that would help us quite a bit. Um, I think you know it. Kind of depends on unless I I don't think that the government was shut everything down again. I I I don't think so. Yet it won't happen. Got a message. Super severe, But yeah, yeah, on DH, So I think that what you'll get is and this is my fear is is you'll just get less people going out on then it's you know, it's just trying to figure out well, Kenna. In a restaurant or a facility. Like I get enough customers in the door to just cover all the costs and move forward that way. That's really I would say That's probably my biggest fear. I don't think we're probably close again. You know the main brewpub library, I think I think that we're in a good spot. I think the cans are going to help. I think that some of the packaging changes and things were doing I think will help to kind of keep that moving. Um, I think people will also I've kind of gone through it now and they kind of know you know what? What are we going to do with this? It's you know, we're not just going to stop. Everything ever is going to sit in the house. I think that people will continue to buy stuff and it will continue that way..

"Show. Tonight's guests are Zapf Take Brewing and Jason Blevins and Jim Gogan Bach in guys, How you been? Great. Great. Good for you. Good as you can be as good as you could be right now. Okay. First of all, something delicious. You poured up, and I think you said this was like super fresh or Yeah, it's uh, it's actually not out yet. It'll be out next week in cans. That's our tropical hazy Palin the scoop. Yeah, So it's Ah, It's ah, 5.5%. Uh, pale oil infused with mango, um, basically passion for orange and mango. So, um, look for it. Maybe it's not that definite taste without having the really the tart bite to it. Yep. Yep. By design or just kind of turn out that way. No, it's we've been working on this peer for about Four months. So we've been we've been and where, What major? What inspired you to do that just to go. You want to probably have something ready for the summer. I'm guessing it's a summertime beer. And you know, we've just been playing with with some flavors that Seemed to be popular right now, and we'd be in originally started with infusing the periods and are hazy. Miss Daisy are regular EPA, and we really like the the notes that this period were using, innit? Threw off and so we designed a beer. It's a little bit lighter than our oppa and and are planning on putting it in cans. Actually, next week. Good deal, so and people will be able to get that all over town then. I mean, you know, Johnny Eagle and stuff like that. Um, Hopefully they will. We're having a candle East next weekend at the brewery. And We'll see how much we have left. Basically, when you guys do a can release what kind of, you know shenanigans. You get up, Tio. I mean, that's Ah well, this will be our first can release. Actually, we've never came before. And so, so I don't know when we have bottle releases pre covert 19. You know the shenanigans were but the lines were long and we had a lot of fun at those. This will be The first post code 19 event that we have like this, and it'll be it'll be interesting to see we have some, you know, following the rules, so to speak with, you know, lines and stuff like that, so hopefully we still have a good turnout. Andi, keep every everybody happy. Have you talked to any other brewers that have done a can or a bottle release since returning from Cove it just to kind of get any tips or pointers from them, or you just got a feeling your way through it. We're going to kind of maverick it, okay? In the true zap Take spirit because I don't know I honestly I don't know that anybody. I think outer belt as their anniversary party going on this weekend, but that's the only people that I know that you've done any kind of can really survive a release since Well, let's let's jump back. So it's Ah, I don't know, mid March and all of a sudden on that Sunday afternoon, Mr DeWine lays down the verdict at that press conference that you've got to shut it down at midnight. So what was it like in the tap room that that evening? Kind of Ah, Sad but celebratory mode or everybody. I shouldn't say celebratory, but you know, people go on. Look, let's get one last Orion before the lock down or Up in the tap room. It was super busy. Lots of people were coming in and and Um, supporting basically. Yeah. And then I ast Faras downtown. I think you guys were pretty busy, too. Sunday. Sunday was really busy. And then we pretty much determined that we were going to close after Monday. I think we had like Four people that came in so That's pretty much what we did it for us. Jason Blevins and Jim Gogan back in from zaftig tonight, and, you know you mentioned the Italian village location. How long had that been opened before this? Did you guys open up in spring? Or was it more like last fall? It was it was actually December 2nd. Okay, so just just over 3.5 months. It was heartbreaking to say the least, I'm sure. Yeah, so this mandate comes in and ah So what do you guys do? You have an emergency meeting and go. What are we going to do here? I mean, you let it soak in for a day or two and try to rally back then or because nobody had a game plan. Nobody had a playbook to refer to And you know, everybody. I just think it's interesting that Everybody processes stuff in their own time and again, nobody's prepared for a pandemic and no matter how long you've been in brewing or any other sort of business When you got your business plan together, maybe going forward. People will require a pandemic chapter, but but nobody had won. So So what did you guys do? Yeah, it I mean, I think like every business it was a shock. You know, we've Jim and I talk a lot about you know what we want to do in the future, And, you know, every year kind of goes by and we decided that the group of concept was was really what we wanted to Dio. And so you know, a year and 1/2 ago. Now we were thinking how this is great. You know, everything looks good. They got construction done. Got it. Open business was starting to go Good. We were exceeding our business plan. Everything's good and then literally overnight, we closed doors. So was yeah. And like you're asking this far as planned goes, I mean, we were flying by the seat of our pants. We were going to try and stay open. And then the Monday realization came that we had four customers come in and were like It's not worth it, so that being said Worthington stayed up open the entire time. The actual berry stayed open for carry out business. And I mean it wasn't Anywhere close to what we were doing it sitting in the tap room up there, But it was. It was pretty good. Um You know, the probably The worst part about it of all of it is Is laying people off. Yeah, I mean, we laid 90% of our our staff off and a lot of them have come back now, but you know, there's still some people that are laid off and you know, we want to bring them back, but we just got to make sure it's the right time. Now that you know it's not back to normal, but you know, trying to get to that. That point But people got condition somewhat into knowing that they could stop by and pick up beer. And so so, is that Maybe.
