"Oh jeez you will listening. In your opinion who is the second best point guard period. Now it's always been great debate. Of course you come to detroit. It's going to be isaiah. Thomas magic number one. Who in your book is number two of all time here trade. Because i'm thinking of and we were having this discussion of course in the barbershop. Sure think about thomas. Today's game. I mean the man. Play the entire game on one lake and sports the lakers. That was probably one of the greatest performances by athlete period. That i can think of. In my opinion the man was. He couldn't play the next game after the game. His leg was is huge is it could be but he did what he had to like us. Unfortunately we lost that series. But you know that that's my vote for them and how about people have always wanted. Who was number two d howard. How 'bout stockton. What about john stockton. What about i guess the reason why would pick isaiah overstocking because isaiah could go off. I can never imagine. John stockton putting on performances. They did against bernard king in call. I remember that. I remember that he'll be brown was the Was the coach and it was that was that was was. i think. Trump ymca went on that to monir. That's right thanks for the call. Jeff i appreciate that are what would you say i think i think i would go steph curry man. I agree with jeff. Magic's one i would go you view curry as a facilitator. Because that's what he's pointing out is that you're pointing out. You've gotta go off and you've got to facilitate you've got a quarterback facilitates the ball going in. I understand that. that's what i'm talking about. Point guard when i think point guard. I don't think scorer. I think facilitator. I think he can do everything. What about you. Tj a community. Your pat beverley. You're trying to work your way too strong. So i had a list of my top point guards for for a while now and it goes magic is area you know i never saw ska robertson play but from everything that i've read everything i've seen he. He's definitely you know top two or three of all time. And then i have stocked in then i kind of agree with you on a step thing because kind of feel like steph is more of a to even though he plays once so he's kinda hard but i guess if he is listed as a point guard you have to put having there and then i also have jason kidd and steve nash. Sure what about chris. Paul harbaugh jet the championship. Paul now go on this list. I think he jumps into my three way. Tie for fifth place. This guy appropriately ties. But it's hard for me to different. Stand gnashing kid and gary payton like you know nashes the mvp's and kid one a chip and better out of those steph. Curry is above those guys steph. Curry has the mvp any has the championships steph of chris. Paul is two wins away from having his state farm commercials last in terms of relevancy in a playoff said longest. It's ever last night. He's the king of like. Oh yeah he was out two rounds ago right and there's a new with all those commercials everywhere he's about a he's about to hit him and bring s they had one and now there's a new one where they turn into car. Buddha haven't seen that he goes like glad she's getting this national one last thing to to bring up and then we'll we'll move to our new segment That karl malone showed up the other day in a in a jersey. Did you see that. Uh oh yeah. Was he wearing a jersey. The game like a fan. Like he wants to jordan clarkson. He was wearing wearing jersey. Like that's that's a choice man well and she's made a lot of interesting but i just would you ever wear jersey to a game absolutely not. Would you ever wear jersey with no shirt on underneath to a game like you're playing. I'm way to harry for that. I i'm like the kid like early. Two thousands i was thinking of. You're the king of mitchell and ness. Oh yeah. I had probably the between basketball baseball. Football will overlake. But now you're a grown man. You're grown asmat grown man so yeah i was. I was always. I was always into the sneaker in new jersey things so for me personally. Yeah you know what he's all. The time i think cara henderson was the first one. This rule that you can't wear jersey to a game of a player who's younger than you are. In real life gets broken every day. Last time i wore jersey to a game was the nineteen ninety seven i believe. Afc championship game or ninety eight. Whichever one that was. I don't know what year county or nfl year was when the jets were in In in denver. What's the last thing that s championship game that led to March lengths middle finger ring In that over the jets I wore my Wesley walker gamer to the game with my name still stitched in the back of it from camp condo and trails and camps that they knew which bunked return to it fit and i was already on sportscenter two years by the time i went there three rows in the top of the stadium last time award jersey to a game as a fan now which i was so big into jerseys back in the days when we would go out either party wants friends through me and i didn't know this going in But when i got to gisha house where everybody was. Everybody had a jersey on for me like the entire party. People who never worn. Jerseys had people were like i just went to the store and bought this. Nobody told me about ashton did ask everyone ever was jersey at the time i want to say was it. What was it i'd have to. I'd have to have the picture. I'd have to look at every pitch jersey everything if you look at my facebook there the entire but what is this. This is probably two thousand. This part two thousand three wow four. That was the height. Though of every rap video everyone was wearing jury big. I was getting him on the arm as they say. Hey now you know so of getting football basketball baseball fo- free ninety nine so it was it. Was he wearing a. Rex grossman game. I'll i'll find the pitcher and enough stewart ex house. The cagey dicta wrong. Bears years of two thousand three. You might have had a cat bozo jersey. That's only that's the only way you can refer to dictator on is cagey as you know we we. We always like here on the show. We beating me That was a royal we reference mentioning my three favorite coaching cliches in the nfl.

"What are the five editions worth of war? Els Follow you know based on DNA war. Yeah so we just WANNA dishes perspective when this Stashing stores and I came on as a box set A spiral bound books in it. I have two copies of of those I got one. That Corey win was wonderful enough. Got Me One. And he got Jeff Plain sight coverage is really cool. Cool sets up Michelle forgotten other one's been like a multiple read through hopefully play copy Sunday and then he put out essentially like a second edition. Kickstarted it Yep Jeff did and it's this this it's bigger and heftier than a dungeon crow classics book. It's actually sicker. Yeah it's a it's a meaty fucker but I'll tell you man it's it's really it's all in one you get this book you're done. Yes it's a one stop shop and I think one of the things that people are surprised that when they maybe go to the booth just kind of pricey but when you think about the fact that we are getting everything you need to run the game in one volume And it's good quality. Yes like his nationally. Not that expensive when you think of it. Where your your books if you happen to pay cover price? What one hundred fifty dollars in? Yeah to get the same stuff. Yeah Yeah I like that. That is kind kinda cool. Where it's it's not self-referentially does its guests here? It's setting is really handy so I shouldn't say really handy but I love the fact that I can use it in multiple with will ways when I when I read it. I'm like oh I could. I could transport people here which I think it kind of a cool way to intro people into it because then everything here is weird. and they'll be shocked octane disoriented and act accordingly than the learn about the setting and so forth. You said you've run it with justice system. What is it about the system that makes you think that it's the your favorite version of Dandy so I love like we were talking about the classes? I think the classes that were just really well. Done really tight They're fun to play. I don't think anyone ever feels they're useless. Table regardless of what their look classy pick I like that the race. It's race Manu pick mostly role playing. You're not gonNA get any benefits you know for being a viking versus being look at Amazon. But it's all roleplaying flavor And the just the so the advance stuff like the advanced combat options. If you choose to use fun senator rolling to hit every time you can choose to do different you know whether you're shield bashing Or a shield wall are fighting the shield and spear type stuff You can so you can make a character that kind of fits a certain genre that you WANNA play What else about Nick WanNA play versus It's just it's easy to run. I really do love the initiative system. It's one of the things that people get freaked out about on because it cited initiative but there are two phases and I think the way I think about it is it's kind of like how. Adhd we have a Morality D. had they didn't call it they weren't phases but they were Segments yeah segments. It's not as indepth or as hard to Iraq that stuff So if we're if we're doing it how would you so we may not all right. So let's say you're my player in the DM that we both will d six and you roll from the whole your all your player characters. I'm rolling to the monsters and let's say I win right but my monsters have to run more or than what half they're moving rate or whatever to get you and you're saying they were the bow ready. Even though you one hour you lost initiative you could still shoot my dudes Abo- as they're running at you you so there are phases there like if you can't finish this and phase one than the other side guest do their essays one action which would be setting stolen shooting and for some reason that freaks people are like really way more difficult than it is. But it's it's just more than and it's usually only the first round of combat forces are clashing Yeah because you had a distance and either you stay at distance or try to stay in one side's tries to stay in an close or just pure close. Yeah get and it allows for a little bit of tax. I never really play Bridget but there is a little tactical. Like Hey we're going to be. Let's make a shield wall and and stop dudes through the second ranks and use their spears and things things like that Because there's there's weapon Lincoln that kind of stuff so when you're doing this you saying you don't often use a grid you find it. Plays the theater of the mind experience with it. Works really well. Yeah yeah very well. I don't I don't think I've ever actually used grit with it The most I'll do is right. Down the coups engage with WHO and kind of people rust ideas or people on the battlefield but my group loves Pathfinder because they like the Uber Tactical supergrass crunchy stuff. And I'm kind of I'm like okay. That's the thing but for me when the disadvantages for a game of looking like if I can't run a theater the mind. I want that option to be a good clean option in trying to run a super crunchy like path breath under three zero. Three five is almost impossible in my opinion is really. I've done it but he's really often asked to be so hainault like it. It's almost I mean it's designed so the the The map near that the more than other Games are But without worry I think it's more of a instead of a crunchy kind of character building or using your abilities in ways that are synchronized with other ones. It's more like actual tactical combat like. Hey we're in a close space and I'm GonNa make I'm GonNa negotiate failings so they can't get past me and the guys behind me are going to use their spears stab things you know so kind of like real world more orwell's fighting type stuff than Than rules sheets stuff like that makes sense with the so then I don't want to. I don't think this is the knock on it but feels like a lot old school games that the skill the player can be very helpful. Right if you're if you're not if you're like hey lies is we earlier. I look around dude. Come on what exactly you're going for. I think because it's that old school style. You need to say those things like I look underneath the throne. I slit the cushion. I look under stop it. This type of game is that type of over explanation. Some people would say that detail explanation getting into the activity really chewing the scenery so to say is almost required to really get into it. Because once you're doing that you're you're in in that mode right and I think this game. It's got some cool stuff to it but to really take advantage of that stuff it it also. I feel encourages me when I read it. I feel like I want to do that stuff. And maybe that's just Jeff's magic with how he's outlining stuff but it's like amit describing it as you want to do and that's what the game masters help you figure out. Yes sure I also muscle love reading. It brought me back to being a kid again because I've never read a core book as much as I've read this just for fun. You know fun read is is a good read actually. Yeah That you know this. BCC are like my things. I was just like I will read the scorebook as as for pleasure and leisure and not just for like like preparing for games. Do you find Let's see here the only thing I from an old school perspective with the back to the monster's unleashed talk about monsters for second so rice it has migo so those are like through Love crafting temper stuff but also has the you know the the apes and I think at this have androids to several butts. I can't remember rope. Robots robots. I don't have the corporate here. I can look but looking up the rules at table at school. Hey just which Sloan play down a little bit shut up but I mean we're great research on the Atomic Hamadan. Sounds kind of goal type things you know But I love the fact that the creditors call if I wanted to run this and I wanted to run founded with five write a love the setting mcnabb and wanted to five. I think he would really if you want to use five monsters. You're going to have to go through. And parse you're GONNA have to did you lot of legwork. I think cleaning did a great job with the creatures in the monster manual all our vodka and fit their what their wonderfully plucked walked from all the right pieces and parts of all that weird fiction that he loved that he plugged into here. And I think that's the piece when I read it even as a tier with sometimes gives it tears. I get kind of you know glassy-eyed buzzing through them but this one I felt like there's so many wonderful modules and pieces pulled directly from all this cool stuff you oh all I know where that's from and even if that's not a thing you've done if you haven't read all that stuff it just if it will fit yeah which I think is can be really challenging especially for you know the main book is Lexicon Alexa Pages. It's it's heavy but it's broken into chunks rights again mosman players guide. DMZ Guide guest here all the Shit magic items all one book but all the monsters are wonderful. curated to help. Whenever you lay that in into a group is going to enhance the experience? You don't have to say well. It's a red cap but I had to change it Shit it has a power. That doesn't really work or all. I didn't know that when fit or whatever you know what I'm saying it just everything in it is wonderfully aligned with the setting what he's trying to make you feel when you're playing it now but those pretty cool and you do have some of your like traditional dnd monsters There aren't you're not going to have like Goblins goblins in cobalt hobgoblins. But there are ORCs for their a little bit different. Though ORCS in this game are essentially demonic spawn of the picks So a a little bit different But at the same time You might have loses things that I think the DVD Going fit more in a sort of sorcery genre. Then you know then picking the high fantasy stuff And then you got your definitely like Howard. Lovecraft Smith influences when you run this when you run this you tend to run. The pre published astonishing servicemen adventures. Or do you make your own. How you doing it? I do you both I think it's a lot like how I run a lot of my games is I'll put seeds in those things. I WanNa do like homebrew or things. I've I've come up with And then other published adventures. I saw I start like bringing in the rumors and hints beforehand. So it's not so forth when they go to the next one so I like the might start hearing the things things that could possibly be another adventure path enact just kind of leave it to them I think most of the stuff I've done on my own homebrew stuff is Ben's ethnicity state of Camario Rem. 'cause I think it's fun you know and it's it's real easy to kind of riff on length. Mar N's use. Those influence makes sense. Yeah Yeah because if you do that there's enough the adventures that are out there and the other thing that I like. They remind me the adventures remind me very much of the DC stuff. They're not like they're not fifty thome. No if you're like beneath the comet in in rats in the walls they're very very tight in condensed they feel like those d- size adventures and old school modules. Were you can buzz through it like like. Oh I got this boom and you can. You can read that in like a day or less and get ready to run that sucker. Yeah so I. I think that's an advantage to me because then if you wanna see that stuff out author you can talk about the comet the rats the walls the you know the charnel pit you can lay that stuff out there and almost west Martius style say. Look wham there's These potential things out there go get it. Yeah where you're going to see who wants is he wants to go grab onto it. Yeah and I saw the to to do the comparison with DC mm-hmm the decency. Adventure modules are usually around ten thousand words And designed. You can't.

"And joining us now is Jeff magic and regular contributor to the New York review books in a former economics columnist for the New York Times. He's the director of the Benedetto Schwartz rediscovering government initiative at the century foundation and editor of challenged magazine. And he books include age of greed, the triumph for financing the decline of American nineteen seventy to the president and his latest book is seven bad ideas, how mainstream economists have damaged America and the world. Welcome to background briefing. Jeff metrics today with in. So as we get into this new year. And of course, tomorrow, they never Croats will take over the house. The economy is being pretty shaky of late in the least of which is a government shutdown. And of course, the secretary of the treasury didn't help matters by talking to the six biggest Bank is reassuring us that there wasn't a liquidity problem when nobody said there was look. Any problem in the first place because guy? Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. So in terms of the stewards of our economy. We know we've got a bunch of cranks and crackpots like Navarro and the TV guy, and plus we got this. I've known that TV guy for so many years, really. So nobody's minding the store rows economies guy the way he doesn't have an economics degree. I never even finished his masters degree. I'm told right, right? Well, it's the blonde that beat not bad. Not that having an economic makes you could economists. The the bottom line is it's the blind leading the blind here. So what your prognostication for where the economy is heading because if the economy as much as people wanna get rid of this dreadful president the one thing that he's real achilles heel, even with these base hockey's basis just in the FOX bobbling. They won't leave him at all. But about half of the people that voted for him fairly well off middle class, white Americans and them are concerned about that 4._0._1._K. I think yeah. Here's basically what I think the chance to the serious slimmed-down, which means will start growling gross will go down to two or even one percent a year, which would be quite slow and not enough to employ all the people who will be coming into the job market. But second I think there's probably one in three chance of recession. What's going on is several things? One is the rest of the world is slowing down including Europe. So they buy less from us. The economy is not producing productivity growth, which is source of economic growth. That is in simple terms. The amount that is produced per worker that has been very slow and people don't talk about it very much capital investment has begun to slow contrary to the promises of those is supported that. Really seriously wrong headed quite immoral tax Trump and the Republicans who said once business gets a big tax break stone investing. They bested for a few months allow that slowing down significantly investment. Was the only way you get productivity Russ. I'm sure I'm leaving a couple of other things have the final coaches that if we do have continued his will rise and that will upset the stock market even more and the stock market can have an effect on the economy because there was a so called wealth effect as you said anyone people worry about the 4._0._1._K's they stop spending as much indeed even business stop spending as much because the cost is based on their stock price. I know custom capital is now going up. So this is combining to be into. What could be serious? A serious obstacle to economic prosperity within three to six months, and some idea that Trump it keeps saying talking about all the great things. She's done for America. We'll have to confront reality. At that time. None of courses this training or his promoting. So I think there's trouble on the horizon. And again, I'm speaking with Jeff madrick and regular contributor to the New York review books in a former economics columnist for the New York Times. He's a director of the benefit Al Schwartz rediscovering government initiative of the century foundation and editor challenge magazine in these books include age of greed, the triumph for financing decline of American nineteen seventy to the president and his latest book is seven bad ideas, how mainstream economists have damaged America and the world. So. On the foreign policy. Horizon. Trump is just giving away the store in Syria to Putin. And God knows what he'll do. He'll probably end up pulling troops out of NATO, which be the ultimate gift to Putin. Putin runs a gangster state entirely dependent upon the price of oil. And I don't know why we even obsessive him quite so much, and perhaps I'm guilty of that myself. Let me add one other thing, you know. And when Trump talks about what a great leader Putin is wages have been declining and Russia for three years in a row, not just growing slowly, but literally declining. Sure and never seems to come up. Right. And he's on a paddock day because the the so-called pension reform where he's delaying the age of when you can get your pension is absent causing mayhem. So he's riding a tiger. They because the average Russian missed finally figuring out that all of the cream is being siphoned off by these crooks led by Putin, and there's just nothing left for the regular people. So, but I agree. Ben loyal prices are low right and heading down. So what about China, I know the Chinese leaders look over their shoulder around people? We always attributed that they're taking over the world. This certainly doing a lot of geopolitical maneuvers with debt traps where they get countries like Sri Lanka in. Debt on some big infrastructure project. And then they ended up saying, well, if she can't pass back will have a ninety nine year lease on this port as a naval base, etc. But let's talk about their economy because my understanding is a lot of problems the the stock market is more or less. A gambling casino had to be shut down. And there's massive unit. Municipal dead out. There is China the miracle that's going to dominate two thousand nineteen. Try hard to get real data on China people try they they they tried to go around the actual official data by talking to individual corporations, but businesses there, I think China, there's no doubt that China's highly-indebted and that could come crashing down is China miracle. It is it was a miracle. There's no question about it. How they push too hard and expanding their economies debt. I think they probably have they you talk about that traps that they're creating elsewhere in the world, not dissimilar to the debt traps. Wall Street created for some subprime mortgages subprime borrowers and America or you created for Greece Spain, Portugal Italy. So it's not an uncommon founded on common practice by the wealthy. But. Will they write it out? I would say they will probably ride it out. They have an obedient populous who does what they're told. If they're tells the type and their belts think. Well, so I think they will be okay. But I'm I can't say that with great assurance. So what then is the bright spot on the global economy or even on the domestic economy? The bright spot. You say, yeah, I'm I'm I'm trying to be a little optimistic because we tended to deliver relentless bad news. I think the bright spot will be if we don't slow down too much, and we finally kabosh on Trump's trade war. Those will be the bright spots in terms of areas of the economy that I think my take off and propel us to new highs certainly not obvious that high technology computerized boom was building for years and always look like the place that would be the source of robust growth. And finally it was beginning in the late nineteen nineties through the two thousands. We to the reason I brought that issue up in is that we to use that to grow the economy and the two thousand Greenspan wanted a housing, boom. And we we had a housing boom. But on the backs of the relatively poor which Obama did nothing. Who about which? The poor who lost their has is not protected by Obama. When I read it when I say, this financial guys like Paulson bragging about how well they did to save the economy, I get infuriated because they did nothing for those who are in debt. So I I think worry is appropriate right now. And I am one who is not worried about the economy per se when Trump took over because. Because the economy needed pumping up. It was dominated by steady. Even under Obama, sturdy ideas, not building up the federal deficit. But now, of course. It's gone too far the deficit is too big and it, and it's okay to borrow if you spend productively on things like infrastructure. Business spends on productive and productive areas. But that hasn't been happening. So generally speaking, I'm pretty worried, and even I saw a little bit of my small investment account. Let's see months ago. I can't say that. I quite see. A bright spot. I will say this headline ever one almost never sees the bright spot until it's here. So the bright spot in my Welby, the Democrats beginning to take over and my biggest worry because this is my biggest complaint. Big concern. Is that over was anyway that the Republicans with somehow undermined the social net in order to pay for this big tax cut. Now, I suppose the one bright spot is the democratic victory in the house will prevent that from happening. So I think social security Medicare Medicaid is protected. I think ObamaCare is protected because people like it. So I'm thinking on my feet as best I can hear you. But maybe the one bright spot is the people have to learn the value and are learning fabulous government Macaire. They actually like on balance. And I think maybe they'll continue to learn some of that if they learn that, and we begin most during our safety net taking taking care of our poor. And by the way, I'm writing a book about child poverty in America. And and did I say investing in infrastructure taking care of our poor most during our social that maybe we'll become a great country again to quote, our leader. But that's what it's gonna take. Right. And meanwhile, the government shutdown federal pay is frozen and federal employees Trump just took away a rice for all federal employees in the name of of dealing with the deficit. So he's a cruel, man. He's a cool, man. And is only one idea that which is to show his base when a guy is right and blaming Democrats is only strategies to plant. Right. Week and dangerous strongman, and I thank you for joining us. Jeff maverick. Thank you.

"Can they beat the golden state warriors in a seven game series it definitely gets more interesting but i still don't think they're better than the warriors would that combination of place but it would be the biggest test i think for the wars that we've seen and houston hey pushing the seven games and chris paul was hurt for game six and seven i still think the words will be king's but i'd love to see it i pay to see lebron paul george in kuwa leonard here's why i think it could happen to jeff magic johnson was not hired to be some cheerleader for the lakers to be some ambassador for the lakers he was higher for one purpose to significantly upgrade the talent in the twenty eighteen and twenty eight nineteen free agency pools this is when he's supposed to make his mark they brought him magic because of his relationship his ability that they thought he had in attracting talent they wanted him to bring in a lebron they wanted him to bring in type magic's job is on the line with the team like the lakers in the next two years i think so i think he's under a lot of pressure pull this together he was babysitting last year was lonzo good that he showed some sure did kuzma do the same shore but you're not winning a championship with that group anytime soon if you can add some veteran players at small stars like lebron and paul george chris paul you do it and you make a run at these warriors i think magic johnson will do everything in his power to try to put this super team together because he knows man in twenty nineteen jeff if he has not significantly upgraded that talent pool he's gonna be in trouble i don't care what he has to that lakers franchise they will let him go like every other person has been a part of that organization because that franchise expects to win and they expect to capitalize off this market this summer i like the lakers chances here because i think there's a lot of cachet with magic johnson i do i understand the vision in los angeles i know why magic has that job look he has been very confident i.
