"And he does a weirdly decent job against embiid considering I think everybody considers and it's a liability, but when a bead really wants to, holy back, man, he can get to the rim a few months. If you see him off, he can spin toward the baseline, shoot that little jumper. He can go into the paint, pound you in and do a little jump hook. He's got a lot of options. And I don't think, you know, I'm watching TV every night on watch in the league and seeing in person really gave me this historical appreciation of how many big guys in the history of the league had the arsenal moves that he has. You know, you start with hakim. Shaq, I think was pretty underrated for how many moves he had compared to I think what people tended to think his offense was a little more primitive. Doing, especially as his started to get shot in his next years. Had his three or four staple moves that were really, really good. And then you go to like the Robert Paris. She had his one little spin move on the baseline and then his little pull up turnaround that he had. Everybody's got something. And has added this kind of off balance 20 footer that he's had the whole time, but now it's kind of basically unstoppable. And it's kind of the point where you have to play at least a little off because if you don't, he can kind of bully right by you and get into the paint. But if you play a little bit off them, he can do this weird one legged off balance thing that he has, and if it's coming in, you're kind of done. There's no way to stop it, especially if Philly was spacing at the right way. They put him and curry suborn on one side. They spread the rest of the side with shooters. If you go and you double and bead, well, he's going to be able to pass it to somebody. His passing is good. It's sloppy too. It's kind of a combo of. He can make a great assist and then the next time he'll throw right to the other team. So I'm not saying he's like, he's not like Bill Walton. But he knows where to put the ball from time to time. Sometimes he could be a little lazy. But the scoring, you know, and you really see the difference with him versus somebody like Tatum. And granted Tatum isn't the guy that he's going to be down the road. I still feel like there's a whole level up for him to go. I still don't think he's that fun to play with. There's a lot of one on one stuff that a lot of times he seems. We have a category in the rewatchables for the guy who seems like they're just over there in their own movie who caught the Jed Nelson word because if you watch new Jack city, Jed Nelson's just in his own movie. I don't know what movie he's in, but it's that new Jack city. And sometimes Tatum feels like that when you watch the Celtics. Everybody's kind of trying to play together and Tatum's just kind of often his own thing sometimes. And I think he's hard to play with. And there's been a lot of.

"For high school athletes. Getting scouted to play on a big league. Sports team is the dream they hope. Someday Day recruiters will be standing on the sidelines watching during practice or come to their games and sign them up for college teams or even sometimes professional ones. That happened a sixteen year old. Kyle gears door. He goes by the nickname Boga but the recruiting process was a bit different gears. Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living. The teenage dream getting paid to play video games epic the company that makes fortnight. Isn't the only game in town. activision blizzard and take two interactive software have launched professional professional leagues around their games. Electronic Arts has a fee e World Cup a video game version of the soccer World Cup with thirty two players competing in multiple apple rounds until one country player comes out on top revenue from EA. Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or

"And I just that just made me a little bit on comfortable because I don't know. I feel like I mean, he's not quite a magical negro, but there's magical meagreness. To that passage of the movie were like, these people are facilitating this sort of shotgun wedding or what not a shotgun wedding. But like this impromptu marriage, I feel like that is not my favorite thing in, you know, I am I am believe it or not capable of looking past miss sometimes with the movie, I really like, but I just couldn't figure out. Like, what what premium this movie was placing on like what kind of music, but Dave Chapelle? Character was into did what the relationship between Bradley Cooper's musician and the other black the black musicians in Memphis at this point. Or did handle it almost felt like at the last minute Chapelle figure out he could do the movie, and then they threw something together. So all right. Yeah. With an accent. And we'll be somewhere in the south Nobu care. That'll be fine. Yeah. Actually liked him in the movie. I just didn't really fully understood why he was there. Yeah. I just didn't quite that. Didn't I was not convinced by that? And I think that if we had any inkling that Bradley Cooper that this character that Jackson main had had other friends and friends is apparently deepen as good as as this guy is is with him. I think it would have gotten a lot of I would have gotten a lot farther my credit the credibility of that sequence would have been a lot stronger for me. I want a deep dive I want a deep dive these movies because we we have a few weeks. I want you to come back. 'cause there's there's a wanna talk about the best actor best. Actress all that stuff. You the last thing? I want to leave you with though, spike finally gets cominated. Yes. For like his fifth. Best movie stiff usually five one five like five or Beth movie six it's definitely in that top three. Oh ill. This is not even. I mean, this is me speaking. I'm. I mean, spike if you were to ask you in any of the week Wesley, who's your favorite director? And I'm like, I don't really know. I just feel like the thing. And I'm gonna Spike Lee is definitely the person who is like at the top of my of my of my little, you know, family family feud, flip board, right? He's he's he's on the board, and this movie this man has done more for me, and my sense of seeing kind of of of of life on screen that. Nobody else has ever tried to show before to do it with as much risk and ambition is he's done. Yeah. This is not even close to one of my favorite, Spike Lee. Okay. Good. I I was I was just trying to be nice. I don't have it in my top five either. I I tweeted this actually earlier in the week. I thought they were three times. He absolutely should have been nominated in wasn't. So do the right thing. See Claudio, Malcolm X, and you know, I feel about twenty fifth hour. Yes. And if you go back, and you look at the nominees and the films that year for whatever is in twenty fifth hour, just got just got kicked aside for reasons that remain unclear. It's an amazing movie. I actually think that's one of one of my favorite movies of the century just for from like, a quality acting, directing what it meant when it came out all that stuff and didn't get anything. Ed Norton didn't get nominated for it. Nope. So I don't those are the three biggest robberies for me wo-. Do you have another robbery? Oh inside man. Will you resent? Two thousand five. Oh, and that wasn't even a good movie year two thousand six we what I'm sorry. What? Five or six one of those was bad Dick's down six says, the crash Brokeback mountain. You're you don't think that inside man is good. No. I do think it's good. Oh, I've signed it wasn't a good movie year. Oh, no, not a great movie your I've inside man stores.

"Daisy. It's Morgan Freeman driving Jessica Tandy. Now, Jessica Tandy is rehearsal. Ali and Morgan Freeman is Vigo Mortenson and Vigo Mortenson is basically playing like this Bulger negro, you know, this sort of like big mouth loud. I mean, he's I'm l- Tanisha. Leeann Italian type, but under the circumstances. What we're supposed to be seeing when we see Vigo Mortenson is like nasty, you know, foul mouth battalion guy is a negro and that is the comedy of the fried chicken sequence in which Vigo Mortenson character. Basically can't believe them Herschel ALI'S character has never had fried chicken, and doesn't apparently know how to eat fried chicken. And it's. It's like what's appalling about that? Sequences simultaneously obvious in some ways. But it also is very complicated. If thing we're supposed to be laughing at or the thing, we're laughing at is is, you know, hey, this blackout is in no anything about fried chicken. But the complicated part is he is supposed to be a black person who can be more than a black person who likes fried chicken. But the movie with what it thinks is funny is the fact that this black guy is so estranged from his blackness that he hasn't had fried chicken. Yeah. So weird. I that's pretty funny, by the way, Spike Lee was the one who created the term magical negro or popularized. I should say in two thousand one because he was doing college college campuses oozes right after the green mile and the legend of Bagger Vance, and you know, he had selfish reasons for it. Because driving miss daisy do the right thing. Nineteen eighty nine that whole thing sorry, yum. But here's the thing about the green book or Green Bay is. It's the green book it green book Krino. No article. Can I call the green book? I think it's funnier. Here's the thing about the green book. It's a good movie. I get why people have problems with it. But in the moment, if I'm just like, all, right? I'm turning a movie on I'm going into this world. I wanna see good actors told me a story. I wanna feel some attachment. I wanna see characters change like it does hit on the beats what gets more complicated as stuff like what you just talked about it. It's one of those movies where. In the moment. It's like, oh, yes. Pretty good. And then you're thinking about it after near like, man. Oh, wait a second. And then you talk yourself out of it within an hour. Well, the problem with the with the with the how did you put it like somebody changes like a character changes? Yeah. It's like a classic like the Rainman trope of Tom Cruise is dick is a narcissist. But as a brother taught him how to care about other people and be a good, brother. Right. But in this case Rainman is Don, Shirley, it's the Marsh Lally character, and Tom Cruise is begun Mortenson rate like and it requires I mean, the most depressing thing about this movie is that it really does work in. So you watch it and a hundred percent works. Yes. You were able to watch it as a movie and not think about all of the problems that it that it presents problem. The biggest problem for me is it spends fifteen minutes establishing what a racist life. This guy lives. Right. Yeah. These repairman are in his house. And he when he wakes up from having. Had a rough night at work. He wakes up to like the men in his family and his extended family being over at his apartment to protect his wife because two black repairman are in the kitchen with her, and they make these jokes about you know, these two sachse coal doing whatever they come. They've come to the house to fix and she gives them glasses of water..

"So that things are laughing at our. There's something there like more than they're more than funny, and there's a kind of human resonance developing between these two men, and if it's developing between, these two men is developing between these two characters and the audience, and I think people love watching loud Italian people in the way that they love watching Kevin Hart and other movies like do allowed black person thing people love of Bulger Italian, and you know, this because the I've been really watching the sopranos, and it's just so much fun to have all those people back in my life. And it's really not that dissimilar anyway, keep going. Well, and I think that it just the things that satisfying or so constant, and there's such parts of our movie going lives, it, you know, really all go more into his doing as Bulger Italian is playing Kevin hearts, you could if you didn't reverse the races in this movie, and you just made, and you I mean, you know, it it is driving miss daisy. It is basically the the pretty much the same movies. Driving miss daisy right down to the fried chicken scene. And I I think that if if the some of the some of the perverse pleasure of the film is the movie thinks it's progressive in some way, because it's found this were versatile of of not cla- of not the caste system because the caste system remains in place. The reason bigger Mortensen has to drive her Shaw Lee's character, Don, Shirley, through the deep south is because the caste system won't prevent will won't allow Don Shirley, basically drive himself because he'd be killed before. We even got to the first stop. And so we go Mortenson sort of works as both a bodyguard and a chauffeur and a personal assistant and the comedy is supposed to come from the reversal of the class dynamic on the race dynamic Cray. Like driving.

"It's like they had told those things down. If forget it bend everything factually the movie anyway, could you make his teeth a little more manageable? Yeah. I just I mean, I don't even know where to start with all the things I disliked so intensely about that movie. I just really really just makes me angry. And you know, what the other interesting thing is if you ever if you've ever seen, Freddie, Mercury do anything. And then you watch this movie, you really don't even wanna know, the, Freddie Mercury story, if you're not gonna tell it with any sort of remotely interesting sense of drama or character development. I mean, it's just it is it is it is a bunch of plot points in search of just meant to sort of become a ladder to get you to Live Aid, basically, right which would send they bent the truth on my bed to mean. It's really amazing. All the stuff. Did we wrote about the ringer lots of people written about it? But we would usually you used to people Ben in the facts. And this was like, they basically changed Kittery really basic things that happen. There's okay, let's do this. Instead. But the problem is for somebody like my son who loved the movie who watched it five times who is fascinated by Queen who watches Live Aid on YouTube, and it's just really enjoys their songs now he thinks that's the, Freddie berkers story. So oh, God, that's irresponsible or not. I don't know. But I have an eleven year old son. Now who thinks that's exactly what happened with Freddie, breakers life, and well, you know, I don't know if that's great to be fair to how bad the movie is. It is actually so bad that you really don't learn anything about pretty good. You you. Alert. He bite of leg women, but not really for about three years. Right. I mean, you don't really learn anything about anything. And so I actually think I'm fine with your with with with your son having this co version unquote, a, Freddie Mercury be is, Freddie Mercury. Because basically that means the songs are so good that they'll wind up being the story anyway room, but that, but that's the great thing about that movie. And why I will actually defend it it it turned people who either didn't know that much about Queen or people who like Queen years ago and forgot about them or never thought about them it kind of revived their music and how good it was kid hell, and how original he was like I still feel like he's top four five all time for people you'd want as your lead singer of abandoned an eighty thousand seat stadium. So that and I think that part's cool, and I think it's cool that the Live Aid concert, and you know, and it was fun. It was fun to go see in the face. Ter- was like watching when I was growing up. What was that? Beatles. Rip off in the hat Beatle mania. Oh, yeah. Sure. It was kind of like beetle mania. It was just like, hey, if you let Queen here's a movie with some Queen songs, and it's not could be very good..

"And he retrained his brain to communicate to his body how to move, and that's what Brady did if you watch braided age forty one moving around. It's weirdly a little more coordinated than age twenty four. So from that standpoint, it does seem like he's still trying to improve. But I do feel like he has you know, I felt like the aero was over just because of the supporting cast he had of. Of if you're down by four with two minutes left. How's he gonna go eighty yards? Right. We wanted the weapons anymore has he gonna do this. And what you realizes his brain is still so fast. Like, he's just like, oh that she's doing this. All right. Yeah.

They don't like greatness sorry, but you're saying throughout the season. And I actually thought you were full of it where you're saying. Like, I think, you know, like, or maybe you weren't saying this until later, but that there was maybe a rope a dope happening that he was holding onto something for the postseason in the way. That was I was hoping that I was paying that. Okay. I became clear after the first playoff game was true. I think it's quite clear. I think that like especially you watching those games during the regular season him is not like it went back and looked at them. But like he was just unloading the ball. He was in trouble. He didn't want to go ahead. And it just didn't get hit like wise, screw around. And you're a handful of those losses were close loss the absurd dolphins thing. And and I and I think they just like their chances when the games matter. They feel like the infrastructure. They know they have a chance to get the buy because they have seized. And then the infrastructure of oh, we're going. It's the chargers. So we're gonna play seven defensive backs on defense naked just gonna do it again this week. Yeah. We'll we'll figure that out. Please please come in and do that again. So, you know, we'll see the Rams anytime. They have two weeks. They always have some good wrinkles the thing with the Rams as they really kind of do the same thing all the time offensive inch should see these more tight ends. And they try to mix things up because if you're going to just do the this is what brought us here. We're doing it. That's when Bella check goes to town. Yeah. I will be very disappointed. If Sean McVay doesn't have something a little special. Title. And so sure he will. And and I think that sort of like creativity will be one of the reasons this will be an interesting game. I mean, you want he I think he's one of these people who appreciates this moment of what he's in. And it's going to show you why he's who is. Well, if Jared guy gets knocked out and the backup quarterback comes in is turned darn BB's. That'll be weird. I'm so glad you mentioned this because a reader sent this to me today. If heaven can wait is made in two thousand nineteen. Yeah. He can't inhabit the body of Tom Jarrett 'cause Tom Jarrett's in concussion protocol. True. He's in the blue Ted taken out of the game. So he goes into the dead body of a quarterback who is not allowed to return to the game. So the whole thing goes completely out the window. He'd have to teach himself how to pass the concussion test before he goes into the body to talk to Jack word and get the set Jason gay.

"But I do feel like it's age nicely. It's dated. But not really is not a sports movie. It's not it's not it's it's basically a rom com. But not really it is. And if you wanna see something funny, if you go onto YouTube, and you Google the trailer for it. There is not one hint of football. It's as an executive, and maybe an executive did say if you put football in this film. Nobody's going to see it would also speaks to the star power that he had at the time that he pulled this movie off believably, and and it's kind of insane. But believably at forty one. This is right after shampoo is I'm trying to think what other what are their actors like Burt Reynolds, obviously could have done it. He played show on college. And he usually could have been in this part. Sure. Other than that. I don't the maybe Costner. I mean. Yeah, you have wage when you get there. Lists of great, you know, cinematic quarterbacks from the Johnny Utah's to the you know, so on and so forth back Davis, north, Dallas forty and stuff. But I have to carry the movie part is the best film. Right, right. It's a multidimensional. And also like, you know, this going to sound really Rajabali, but like. It's a kind of film that just doesn't get made anymore. You know, it's it's it's a romantic comedy. It's not small. It's big because they're are big people in it. There's like big scenes in like big camera takes and so on like that. But it's very light on its feet. It looks like it's like or sounds like it's almost the first draft of a script. And I mean that in a good way it's not like overwritten yet. It's like clever and sharp, and that sort of also a signature of like, Elaine, may it really crackles. And I'm surely dating myself. But I I think it definitely holds up as as well. We are leaving out the most significant little bit of trivia from this film. Yeah. Which is the first choice to play the part of Joe Pendleton and having can wait, which was Beatty. One in Muhammad Ali. Yeah. I didn't know that until I read your piece that was right? As Ali had beaten Spinks. I think and. Yes. And and it is a remake importantly having can wait is a remake of a nineteen forty one movie called. Here comes Mr. Jordan in which effectively the same plot. But instead of a quarterback that's a boxer and baby is reworking this film, and like everybody of that era. They think Mohammed Ali is the greatest person on earth, which he was undeniably. The most charismatic human and wanted him to do the part. And you know, who would who would have thought, you know, you didn't put in the piece none of us will ever forgive Chris rock for remaking this. Yes, what is the name of the one that he did was down to earth? So who was so bad? Nobody remembers that rebate it it's still sitting there you probably have to do with different sport again. Yeah. Because I still feel like I don't like remaking anything that is still a hundred thousand percent rewatch abo-, which is, but you could there's ways to do this. And maybe you change you could change the sex and make make a female lead. And do it that way and make our tennis player some fan. I dunno. There's some really gonna sound like shine fantasy, but I couldn't help. But think that watching this? I couldn't help. But think of reminders of the of stars born of the Bradley Cooper, Bradley Cooper, sort of pursuing this kind of baby s career, right? It's like he's the writer. He's the director. He's the star. He can do all these things. He's so good looking. He inspires envy. Men. Wanna be you know, that kind of thing..

"And even the stuff that could be scandals either gets swept under the rug or people are afraid to really dig as deep as it needs to go like the Tampa. Stuff. Sure. Which is a real problem with the league and get Lord only knows what's happening behind closed doors. But for the most part people, you know, fell though, they're not gonna dig as deep. It'll be interesting to see what happens the next time. Seattle SuperSonics leaving the type situation happens and how people will handle that like 'cause you can kind of see the seeds starting to be planted here in New Orleans and how plays out that the league. My point is the league hasn't had a very league unfriendly story since sterling and that was I would say three and a half years ago. But they went from they had Donna he they had the David Stern suspending the in those guys they had the Sonics, right? They had the Chris Paul veto, Sal. Yeah. Master of the palace. There was always something to flip out about a and it just recently has not really happened now. Yeah. I mean even last night like there was a little tangle in the jazz Denver game. And like that just gets played for comic relief. Now, you know, it just is like, you know, it's instantly like chopped up, and you know, put on social media in little clips, and that's the other aspect of this. Of course is the MBA was very very very shrewd and not policing copyright. Yeah. And that really changed everything house highlights and beyond. I wonder how much of that has to do with all these different media entities include the ringer. 'cause Lord knows. We've we've beaten into the ground has gets three hundred sixty five days of content a year out of the NBA. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's not adversarial like the NFL. It's like nobody likes the NFL, but we kind of need it. I know it doesn't make me feel great always feel like I have to maybe take a shower after every season..

"Now, if you're at a Celtic game, especially in the playoffs and you put like surfin sully and Murph behind the bench and they're yelling at Jimmy Butler. Even if it's totally civil even they're just heckling me like Butler, you suck. Yeah. Hey, butler. Why did you try to get traded again? Security will come over and say, you guys have to shut up you're gonna leave. That's what it's like now going to a sporting event. Yeah. Same thing with people being drunk in the stands, and we've we've spent so much time in energy. China curb behavior of people when they're around one another and then no time and energy whatsoever. With the online stuff and people are online more than they're together. It's you know, it's cheaper online. And do apple does that thing where they tell you what your screen times been this week? Do you have that on your on your foe? Oh, yes, I do and it is a site sometime so is upsetting. And then I'm like, well, I do work in. I do I do have digital media company. I do have to be online. It's not all that bad. But it's still sobering. Yeah. So I feel what the NBA stuff, you know. And he likes talking about that. Because and I wonder you know, if Twitter I wanna say using that's a little too conspiratorial world, but they're happy to put the NBA Twitter out there. As an example of what Twitter could be an NBA Twitter is kind of the Shangri LA of Twitter, right buddies clever. You know, being a total asshole isn't really tolerate the players arrived at their smart league. News travels that way, just feels like the league is wired onto the program in that kind of civil interesting funds stimulating way that optimally Twitter would be for everything. But is clearly not. So I think that like I saw that. He did a thing recently what Adam silver Rachel Nichols. I think they're very happy to talk about NBA Twitter anytime possible. I think there's one key to Embiid Twitter that we didn't talk about it in the podcast, and you didn't just mention, and I just thought of it as you were talking. The NBA players kind of police NBA Twitter to some degree how. So it's the only it's one of the only places. Well, they'll come back to you. They'll come back at writers. They'll come back at broadcasters. The NFL guys do it to do it a little bit. Like, we had Derek Carr did when after max Kellerman wanting to do a UFC fight against him. But it does seem like in basketball. They'll go at the media, even CJ McCollum. There are some story this week where he was talking about. He mentioned me. He was like, I am always in trade. Rumors Bill Simmons who's that guy. Bill. Simmons is trying to get me traded for five years as I ever tried to get you traded. It's just fun to make trades and put people in them, and that was the logical team because they have two guards that are basically, there's some redundancy. But the point is he if somebody wrote a CJ McCollum slammed peace, and here's like, he's the reason they're losing the blazers have to get rid of him CJ McCollum could take that piece re tweet it and be like look at this clown. He's hating on me again. And then all the CJ McCollum fans would go and jump on that writer. Yeah. So I do think in a weird way that the NBA players have become the sheriffs of MBA Twitter. It's true. And let's not forget, I think the all time greatest NBA player response was that Carmelo Anthony one to a fan about glazed Donut eating some problems shouldn't say, I mean. Yeah. And you know, this of dovetails with a topic that you and Curtis have discussed before which is that the NBA in two thousand nineteen especially when you compare it to the serious stuff that's happening in other leagues. It's happy talk. It's good times. They're really a visceral that are out there. Even the scandals are fun. The stuff that you guys kicked up last year with the Sixers. I mean, you know, obviously rough times for the Sixers for an office, but pretty hilarious from the outside. And so I don't know it just feels like, you know, if it's our entertainment, it would be definitely like sitcom entertainment. Yeah..

"It's it's a crazy job. Would you rather? Have that job running Twitter, a running the Knicks the Knicks of easier said up? Yeah. Need one superstar and I'm good to go. But I mean, yeah, I just when you think of tormented franchises Twitter in the Knicks. And also your ownership issues too. It was I really liked talking to him. And I thought you know, I was satisfied with the answer. C gave the one thing. I couldn't wrap my head around. What your kept circling back to you know, I kept bringing up the harassment, and he abused and how the onus from day one has always been on the person with the Twitter account to protect themselves versus Twitter, and they've made some moves. But not really, and then he he went into his whole spiel about well, you know, it's. This rehearse thing that he's probably given in all these different interviews about. We know we need to fix this. Yeah. But he wouldn't say when and as thinking about it after which just weird where like if if you were interviewing min, you're like, hey, chemicals are leaking into your kid's bedroom. When do you plan on fixing this? Wow. You know, chemicals are bad problem. They make you know, you have a problem Ville, my kids could have trouble breathing. And you know, we know this is serious, and we gotta fix this. Because I want I want my kids to be healthy. And at some point, you're like, okay. So what do you actually gonna do? Well, you know, chemicals are really bad, and we know that. But he just never it never seemed like a solution was imminent, and I that was the one point. I was trying to make was y-. You kind of have to fix this. Now, you can't just you all down in the future. And we know it's like what's your answer? There is an urgency. I don't know if it's nine to twelve months like you suggested. But I think there's definitely an urgency to it. And I think that part of what? And let's face it. There's a media strategy that's happening here, which includes going on your podcast, which includes doing. Yeah. Numerous print interviews. I think they are trying to do the Facebook opposite. We're not going to hide we're not gonna put ourselves in a castle away from the media. We're going to try to ingratiate ourselves to you. So you know, when shit really starts to hit the fan, you'll at least be able to put a face and voice to this problem. I think that's part of what's going on here. But the where I really sort of differentiate from what he was saying is there's this constant leaning on the idea of well, if you take people off Twitter if you were removed too much of the craziness, you're endangering creating a bubble and. That is true, but the bubble we're talking about in most censuses just be a bubble of civility borderline manners to people and just being courteous to all walks of life, and just you know, basic human decency, I'm not terribly worried. I mean, keep in mind, we lived, you know, thousands of years without social media, and people did seem to have exchanges in conversations without social media that had at least a base layer of civility. And I I just I my fear. Always I always felt what social media and comments actions and all this stuff that you know, when you got people in a room when you've got the actual human beings in a room. There are much more reasonable people. And that always just gave me faith like people were just not nasty in real life as they were online, anonymity gave them this cover of being jerks, yet, I'm less convinced this in two thousand nineteen I see the migration of the nastiness that people have online. Into real life, and you know, Washington and beyond and yeah, I do feel it's seeping in like those bad chemicals used spoke of I think it's pervasive in American life. It's weird that heckling at sporting events has now kind of been replaced by being mean online, the oh have you went to a basketball game thirty forty years ago, you'd hear horrible things and people screaming and even at the Celtics games the seats right behind the bench. They're just trying to get on the guys nerves all game..

"And I I'll be really interested interested to see who gets knocked out of this west thing because it does feel like they're ten teams. Because right now, the clippers are the eighteen they probably they probably fall out, but you the lake at air out lake. Lebron's coming back whenever they'll make it. But then the kings who are just kind of lingering at twenty four and twenty four and probably have a dump trade to make where they go and. You know, they trade a couple of contracts and future. I for Harrison Barnes or they do something. They tried to go for it. So I feel like they I don't I'm not ready to count them out yet, but Utah of the ship, and we probably have we probably have nine playoff teams, maybe ten if the clippers can get there should together. But, but that's nice. It's nice that the Spurs. I think that would have made me sad like a thirty two and fifty Spurs season with piloted Mamie Me said. said with pop just sadly looking sad in the sidelines. Help was talking about the Becky Hammon transition plan. I don't know. I wasn't ready for yet. Most I'm ready for like three years from now. I'm that ready for yet. Yeah. All right. That's it.

"He made by far he's got freed who's like. You know in the garage for two years. I don't even know where he was. He's got Austin rivers who's been on forwarded for teams. He's got PJ Tucker James Innes, the third like this is an expansion team his on and yet he is figured out how to keep them winning. And also they have to win there in the playoff race. He saved their season. It's one of the all-time MVP campaigns. I was used to have this joke about the size of the MVP trophies should be the weight and size of it should should reflect how good your season was. So like the rice possible sees will be a forty pound trophy like LeBron in two thousand LeBron two thousand Tanner whatever's or the the the Brian two thousand thirteen a Miami. When they win the twenty seven it said, that's like an already pound trophy, James Harden's. I might be a hundred pound trophy. Said she trophy like almost can't even hold it. Yeah. You can't you can't believe what you're watching. When you're watching him do it. And then you're seeing everybody on the internet be mad that nobody can stop him, which is one of my favorite thing. I don't I do not like the the rockets at all. But I am rooting for James harden this season because we're seeing the thing that we've never ever seen. Yes. For is. What it feels like to me? I've never watched anything like what he has been been doing. I don't know how you watch that. And and you're upset about it. He's bending basketball in his direction. It's it's unreal. Man. I don't even know what to say. I feel the same way. I do notice that he's only going to get eighty eighty three points only eighty three MAB. That'd be my I won't play. I will put it this. Kobe tried to get in his head like how he ruined Jason Tatum. The Kobe Kobe do detail where he's like here's how James harden and can get better and put some Easter eggs in there that will actually fuck James started up. Psychological warfare. I I was not a huge heart and fan until about a month ago. 'cause I I didn't like the to people. I I respected him. And I think he has some of the greatest footwork I've ever seen. I like how he continues to work on his game and make it better. He's only twenty nine years old. I think he became kind of. He is definitely one of the best four guards two guards of all time heading into the season. Right. What he's done this season. We are now talking. This is a whole other level. I talked about this on the pot a couple weeks ago about the points per game. He's now over thirty six points a game, you know, now, we're heading toward the hallowed ground. This is like the top top level you this is like the fast five the last twenty minutes of fast five kind of level of greatness. This is. Hugh Hewitt question. But if everybody always goes to the if LeBron Jordan play one on one debate, or you know, that's like a talking point. If if Jordan and Hardin are playing one on one how does hardened do. I feel I I wanna say that he'd beats him. I feel like I want to say that. I just he's too big right now. He's too strong. That's another part that a lot of people. Don't talk about is how strong is right now. He looked he looked edible him in person like holy shit. This is this an action movie star that can run a pick and roll. I have your answer. Okay. The game never ends because they get in a fight halfway through 'cause Jordan so mad at the fucking garbage pardons doing to get so like throwing yourself into China get fouls. They just it ends in a fistfight. And James harden loses the fight. So I guess Jordan Jordan goes to jail. The Saturday morning. I don't know if you've played basketball stupid. There's like a Saturday morning pickup game that all the old man play. Yeah. And and when and when the scores like nine two seven and everybody's tired. Somebody will start a fight those are arguing about like a call. You found me. No. I didn't somebody else would take the ball. Throw it across the court..

Now, I know you were in Kansas City covering the AFC game on Sunday between the pats and the chiefs here, but let's let's stick with the NFC game. Here. You heard Michael wilbon said the Dame's tainted overall -ficiating tainted overall, what do you think this is not a good look at offer the NFL we should be talking about the matchups the impressive of accomplishments of the the Rams and the patriots getting back to the Super Bowl. But instead you have fans who in commentators who say that Niro them the league. Is it's crooked. The officiating is a Sam, you know, that it's tainted and everything. Yes. We're still talking about the NFL, but credibility is important in the NFL has worked hard to improve his image. And they want the product to be something that is appreciated and enjoyed and so they took a big step back when they had this miscall here. And so, yeah, they do have to figure out a way to make a change another competition committee has long been very opposed to expanding to add pass interference. But there are some things that they can do that they'll probably discuss this spring when they have their meeting the possibility of some type of expansion. So that way maybe something like this won't happen again. Yeah. So, you know, I'm never going to be one to run to the defense of Roger Goodell. But on the other hand as Jason gay was saying earlier Jason was saying that like he says there's a little secret that with most passes there is some kind of interference. So, you know, so this one just kind of an extreme outlier. So does it really work? Rules change. Well, I think what they can do. And he's exactly right. There's holding on every call. There's there's some type of penalty going on, and it's there's a human element. So it's they're not going to get just a right, but Layton games when there's a turnover or you know in every touchdown there. Someone in a booth that's reviewing the play in split second. If they see something that doesn't look quite right. They radio down to the referee to the official and say, hey, stop the game the need to review it, even if they added something like that. And you know, the that could be reviewed that would help I think because that one was so agreed just and I know when you every watched it in real time, and it is bang bang, really fast. But still everybody standing there except for the two officials noticed it. So I think if there was a person a booth who saw that could alert them they could go back and look at that Bill.
