"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

James Harden in Houston return, MVP case is growing stronger
"James harden incredible and his return back to houston he got mixed reviews from the fans understandably and then also joel embiid incredible forty points nineteen rebounds so stephen eight. Let me ask you this do they. James harden is actually the mvp right now to me is at this particular moment in time he is. I mean the only a half game behind. Joel embiid philadelphia. Seventy sixers and most of the stuff that james harden has done in a brooklyn nets uniform without the services of kevin durant and to some degree without kyrie irving. And so. when i look at it. I say to myself. Damn this guy comes in brooklyn. He's the three time leads leading scorer dirty points per game over the last three games. He's been absolutely sensational. And then he comes to brooklyn and says i'll be the point guard. I'll be the facilitator. I'll get everybody involved and kyrie's like thank you very very much. That's exactly what i wanted to hear. That's news to my ear and he's as run this team. Joe harris was on awards. Podcast and he was talking about. What a godsend james harden has been. What a leader. He has been how he's distributing the basketball etc etc. James harden is flat out ball. He's he's putting up triple doubles like they're going out of style. He's leading the league and assist. He's still averaging twenty five a game and by the way despite their troubles. They've won ten their last eleven games and this man has led the way. And they're only have game out of the philadelphia. Seventy sixers the number one seed in the eastern conference without again the services of kevin durant for the last eighteen games. That's why james harden in this fashion. That is why. I believe he is the league. Mvp at this moment in time
"joe harris" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"Pot here now with espn's nba draft analyst. Mike schmidt. Mike how are you. I'm great rose. Thanks for having me man. Of course let's start with the two thousand and twenty nba draft in the third pick in the draft lamelo ball who has all but sealed up rookie of the year and is looking every bit like a future. All star a franchise player in charlotte. And listen you have seen his evolution. Having watched him a great deal back to his chino high days with his older brother. Lonzo to th walia to australia and obviously now in charlotte and you were very clear. Mike before the draft that lamelo ball was the most talented player in this draft classen. And there wasn't really necessarily you weren't splitting hairs there. There wasn't a close second. He has shown that in the league. Has he been mike. Even more dominant has he made the adjustment and become a player that you eventually thought he might be a lack quicker. No question i thought there was going to be. Maybe a little bit more of a learning curve but like you said he's been the runaway rookie of the year and he's been incredibly efficient to you. Know this is a guy who may be struggled a little bit with decisions in the past. But he's shooting over fifty percent from to thirty seven percent from three eighty percent from the free throw line. he's been far from. You know this out of control gunner that some people labeled him in the pre-draft process. It's been really cool to watch his evolution over the years. I was at some of those games when he was playing with. Lonzo at you hills and it looked like a ten year old back then. And then i went out to lithuania to watch him. Play with v toutes in that was a s strange of development situation. As i've ever seen. I mean it was more or less for internet content than than basketball development But then i checked in on him with his high school when he came back to the states as spire institute and he shot up to six foot six six seven. his passing was transcendent. Really was shooting the ball better. And i remember talking with our colleague and friend jonathan devonian in being like man. This kid is a top ten talent in this draft in jonathan. You know went out to tasmania and watched him play with illawarra and a preseason tournament and i remember him writing lamelo ball should be inconsideration for the number one pick and i remember people thought it was a joke you know. They thought it was just for clicks. And that's right they're questioning you know x y and z about about the whole thing and more you watched the more you time spent around him You know i. I flew out there and spent about four or five days around him. We sat down. We watch film. I was around the team and you could just see his maturity. Starting to grow. You could see that. Teammates liked being around him. And i remember one instance that kind of sold me on him that he was not just some highlight guy but but he was a real player so they went to new zealand and they got smacked by j hampton and the new zealand breakers. I mean got blown out on his body. Language wasn't great. He wasn't trying defensively. And i went back to kind of follow them to wollongong australia. And the coaches went adam and film and they were questioning his shot selection so they had kind of a do or die game the next day at home and he locked up completely. He's chasing guys around screens. He sitting down in a stance. He's making everyone around him. Better end up. Taking game to overtime. Almost had a triple double. It was at that point. I knew like this kid is not just a highlight machine. Unlike he's a real basketball player. He cares about winning. He cares about other people. And that's i think what's been most impressive about his time in. Charlotte is just hearing his teammates in coaches just kind of rave about some of those intangible aspects. That's right. I've talked to james borrego about that and gordon hayward in charlotte about that and they talk about how much she loves to be in the gym. His disposition everyday is sunny. Like he's laughing he smiling This is a trying season for a lot of people in the league. Veterans are worn out by the protocols in the containment on the road at home and there is something to be said. He talked to a lot of teams about having guys who come in the gym and our uplifting the group because there's a lot of days guys are dragging in there and especially as the point guard and having the ball in your hands and i think those were some of the questions mike about lamelo ball was did he care about fitting into a team structure all the teams you just listed all the teams in places and situations. He's been in before he got to the nba. In many of the cases he never finished a season with the team. And i think that's what he has shown so far. Mike is inability to translate a great individual talent into a team basketball and a lot of nights season winning basketball. And i'm sure it's been kind of a big sigh of relief for him to kind of unpack his bags in being one place for the first time in know that he's gonna be there not just this season but you know hopefully for years and years to come and you're seeing that in his game and yet from a talent perspective i mean. You just don't find guys you know with. His creativity is passing his ball handling. And i think a lot of that is a testament to playing against older guys entire life. You know. he's always the youngest guy in the gym plan with lonzo playing with a bunch of nba players And then also play that chaotic style in high school. They took a lot of heat for that because they didn't exactly implement high level defensive principles and we see that a little bit with him but he. He's seen more possessions than any player. Any nineteen-year-old his age because they've played at that pace and so he's understood since he was very young. Okay this is my boss stream read here. This is where i'm looking for. In transition like his processing speed inability to think the game quickly is one of the best. I've ever seen In so just a couple that with his maturity a has been really really impressive to see and this is a case that i've never really seen i mean we're almost evaluating like a childhood movie star if you really look at it in this process rate of guys people like that. Just in life is not great in so the fact that This is a kid who's had the camera on him since he was so young has lived in all these different places and played in all these different countries and is now settling into the nba in bringing joy to that franchise and doing it while not even feeling an ounce of pressure like that's the thing that stands out most about this. He does not feel any pressure whatsoever and he plays with joy in that spirit. And i think all those things have created kind of this basketball savant that nba fans are being introduced to this season. Mike draft night he goes third to charlotte behind anthony edwards james weisman who who go one in two. What do you remember about your conversations with teams in the top of the draft because there was all of a sudden this thought of while how far might he slip. I think by the time we got the draft night. I think we were all pretty confident. Charlotte he was not going past charlotte. Charlotte was pretty confident. He would be there that they didn't have to move up. They did think a lot about james weisman him. But i think they felt like it wasn't where trading the assets. They felt pretty strongly about ball. But what do you remember about the thought process of what their concerns were and what they thought. This guy was going be. Yeah it was kind of all over the map honestly. I don't think it was a situation. Where teams were hoping and praying that that he fell to them. And i think one of the main concerns or questions was if you bring lamelo ball into your franchise. You almost have to hand him the keys. That was the thought right. You have to turn over your franchise a little bit like trae young when he came out. Like if you're going to bring him in you have to say it's lamelo ball franchise now we're gonna put pieces around him and the question was. How good are you if you do that..
"joe harris" Discussed on The Woj Pod
"Here's mike schmidts no question you guys who can shoot the ball at a high level of can think the game quickly and who bring defensive toughness anna maturity they're highly coveted in today's nba. I look at a guy like corey. Kiss bor at gonzaga. I'm not sure he would've been a projected. Top ten pick before joe harris and i think scouts see a lot of joe harrison him. You know a guy who's six six six seven physical a knows how to defend off the ball in his a lethal shotmaker. And then you look at guys who aren't even as accomplished as a kiss or a harris. You know like a garrison matthews or max strouss in miami like if you have size shooting some toughness. You're going to get a lot of bites at the apple to make it in the nba. I think a lot of that is because of joe harris joe. After we recorded that segment with mike schmidts he actually was kicking himself. there was another player that he wished he had included in there. And that's desmond bain. Who's a rookie in memphis. But when you hear. Mike talk and kind of put your development in the league and your growth in brooklyn into some context beyond yourself how it's impacted other young players. Who are in the league now and maybe particularly a potential lottery pick corey kiss bor atkins. How do you react to it. I will first of all. I never thought that i'd be in this position. But i think you know when i was coming out in even just you know you talk with different. Various coaches your agent. There's always people that you're trying to emulate that have had successfully so you know for me to be in this position now I guess there is a level of understanding why there would be you know. People are trying to draw and him larry's our planning on a good team I'm having an impactful role in helping a team of success. And i think he just look at how the game is transitioned to you. Know there's so much more of an emphasis on on spacing guys being able to shoo Make winning plays not be liabilities. Certain areas where you know. You're you're playing basketball. Who doing the little stuff not turning the ball over your liability defensively and then there's value obviously in that and i think You know for players coming up like somebody like corey chipper who actually know and have worked out with the fastest connection and the north west. But you know there's other players that are there similar to him as well that are going to be able to find an opportunity to have a chance to play in this lead because of you know things that are that are definitely not undervalue. Now i wouldn't even say necessarily undervalued beforehand but maybe just a little bit more looked and the games obviously transition to a point now where there is such an emphasis on being able to defend have that level of toughness than also offense is being able to space floor and knocked down shots..
Harden, Harris lead streaking Nets past Lakers, 109-98
"In a clash of NBA title contenders the Mets won easily over the Lakers one or nine to ninety eight extending their winning streak to five James harden led the charge with twenty three points Joe Harris added twenty one the Mets made eighteen threes to only eight for Los Angeles as the lead got up to twenty five in the fourth quarter the Lakers lebron James scored thirty two points and became just the third player in league history to reach thirty five thousand points mark Myers Los Angeles
Los Angeles Lakers go in short-handed and fall to the Brooklyn Nets
"Lakers dropped the game to the Nets got blown out was not pretty wind up losing this one. It was 109 2098. Ouch out not good. We're going to break down exactly what happened and put a little bit of context into it. What does this mean for the Lakers moving forward now that you've lost this was a game that a lot of people look forward to a lot of people had this game marked on their calendars did the Lakers maybe not and there's a lot of different things for us to to get into here the team didn't play. Well, there's no question and we'll talk a little bit about that. But I think where we need to start is that the Lakers were down two starters and yes, it's fair to mention that the Nets were also Down Kevin Durant. That's a giant loss. The Lakers were down Anthony Davis age. A giant loss. They were also down Dennis Schroder and I thought that was a bigger loss than he would be on most nights because the Nets defense is so poor. I think schruder would have had a very good game tonight. Just living in the paint getting to the rim creating Havoc. He would have made a difference out there for the Lakers certainly, but unfortunately was not able to go do to contact tracing with all the cobit stuff going on. So, you know, that was that was definitely unfortunate. We certainly didn't get the kind of finals preview matchup that people have been thinking we would get from this game because you're missing those star players. I don't think we got a very good representation of who the Lakers are as a team. I also don't think we got a great representation of who the Nets are because they're so different with Kevin Durant, but we did find out that the Nets love to shoot lots and lots of threes and make a lot of them tonight. Let's finish the game shooting just 46% from 3, but that doesn't tell the whole story. They were 50% or better for almost the entire game. It was until the end that they dropped off doing a great job generating open Thurs. And the Lakers Defenders were struggling to get out there and get a hand up and they were knocking them down. Joe Harris ridiculous 647 from 3 for 21 points. I said, this is a pregame video game. But one thing that they couldn't do was allow another guy to get going if Kyrie gets his points if James Harden gets his points you're going to live with that you're going to try to make life as difficult as you can on them, but you can't allow another guide to get going in and this game Joe Harris certainly did again dropping 21 points and then you gave up 15 to Timothy Loma Carrboro 2015 points to TLC not great. They're from the Lakers side of things LeBron. James had to pretty much do everything 32.8 board 7 assists 33 minutes glad that he only played 33 minutes. No reason for you to burn him out in this game when it was clearly won. The Nets were going to win especially once they got into the second half LeBron 146 from three three of six from the line, okay? One of the only other guys in double-figures was sixteen and ten. So we got a double-double Montrezl Harrell with ten points. Nobody else really did a whole lot out there. Nobody else did did much on the offensive end. You had nine points from k c p but just 145 from 3 West Matthews who started and played some shooter 144 shooting o of two from deep in 24 minutes Mark assault eight points did shoot for 3:00. So I'd like to see them in four to five threes a night did shoot for hit two of them. So you'll take that but the Lakers on the night shooting just 27% from 3 that slide from behind the three-point line at one point. They were third in the NBA in 3-point percentage and they have dropped dramatically since then and in fact last game they were up just about forty percent from three against the wolves and that was the first game in a while they'd been even better than league-average from deep and that's usually about thirty-five thirty-six percent tonight shooting just 27% That's with me rounding up. That's not good enough that will not get it done 6 a.m. Turnovers on the night as well. That's not a good sign either pretty much everywhere things could have gone wrong for the Lakers. They they really did ten offensive rebounds compared to 8 to the Brooklyn Nets. The brake pads are terrible rebounding team. That was a place where the Lakers needed to dominate 24 free throw attempts for the Nets compared to just 14 for the Lakers each and every spot along the way where the lake she really needed to win that particular area free throw attempts 3-point percentage turnovers, the Nets came out on top and because of that they won the game and wanted thousand Ali so I wouldn't be taking your questions and comments, but I guess before we get into everything. How much do we really take away from this knowing? There's no Anthony Davis knowing there's no Dennis Schroder knowing that the Lakers how many times tonight did we see the Lakers throw out lineups that we've never seen before with five men groups that literally have not played a single minute together yet. Not played a minute. That matters and I know we get some people who say it always but you can't make excuses. You can't you know, you have to go out there and win every single game. I'm just telling you what happened in the game. We saw the Lakers defense breakdown thought that was the Nets offense was really good part of that was the Lakers energy wasn't there part of that was also that they were playing an unfamiliar groupings and defense being something where everybody has to be on the same page. You get defensive breakdowns like this when you throw a line up together add necessity, I don't blame Frank Vogel here. You have no shooter. No Anthony Davis your entire rotation changes and you're winding up throwing out these kind of bizarre lineups out on the court and that's going to create defense of break that breakdowns. It's going to lead to open looks because you guys aren't used to knowing exactly where they're going to switch off their defense of responsibilities are it's a tough situation to be in and so I don't want to make excuses for the Lakers energy. I think they should have played with more energy with more Pace should

Coronavirus Wreaks Havoc On The Global Shipping Industry
"San Francisco is of course home to a very busy port. The vessels that travel in and out of there being hit hard the corona virus is wreaking havoc on the entire global shipping industry. And this is all coming on. The back of a protracted trade war with China Amperes. Jackie Northam reports an bright blue crane clamps onto a shipping container sitting on a flatbed truck effortlessly picks it up sore sixty feet in the air and stacks it on top of five other containers. Toast the new crane-operator he's very slow. Visually it swam Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam Joe Harris a spokesman for the Port Virginia in Norfolk says the cranes are part of a new eight hundred million dollar expansion here. The third busiest port on the east coast. There's a lot of moving parts here so many pieces to it. There there are no incidental moves. Everything is planned. It's truly like a like a watch but the corona virus has upended the precision planning here and at other ports throughout the US and around the world the global supply chain was interrupted when Beijing imposed travel restrictions China Manufacturing slowed. The docks were quiet. Chinese exports ground to a halt as a result. Cargo ships are being idled in dozens of sailings have been cancelled says John Reinhardt. The CEO of the Port of Virginia. There've been over one hundred twenty ships that we're gonNA come to the United States. That have been blanked. So that means they're not sailing for the periods of late. February march and April. You could be talking anywhere from fifteen to thirty percent of the freight that normally flows in and out of this country will not be happening. This slowdown is affecting shipping. Companies Large and small worldwide Maersk. The world's biggest container ship operator warned its earnings would be lower basil. Karadzic's CEO of new york-based Crisis Marine advisers says. The past decade has not been good for shipowners. The demand has been growing at a slower rate than at dawn inch supply. So they're all the shipowners right now. Do not have much money to spare. Disruption is having a severe knock on effect for other parts of the shipping industry says Western Lebar. Ceo of the Harbour Trucking Association in Long Beach California. It's a bad time for everybody. There were three hundred teamster drivers that were laid off just last week because of the inability to have enough rate for them to move. We've seen employee. Drivers take a voluntary reduction hours for some of our companies as much as twenty five to fifty percent of ours well over half of Chinese exports to the US are unloaded in California and the Port of Los Angeles. Long Beach is the busiest complex in the country. Labar says one in every five jobs in Long Beach is directly or indirectly related to the port. Andy says businesses are down sixty to seventy percent since the beginning of February. But Lebar says there is a flicker of hope. The Corona virus is starting to ease up in China. We're hearing many of our customers. That manufacturing is starting to pick back up in China that the ports in China especially the main large port. Shanghai is now getting back to full operations and the hope is that in a week or two maybe we can start to dig ourselves out of this and get back to full operations but Labar says there is a challenge ahead to consider whether the corona virus spreading across the US will affect port operations here as it did in China.

I mean to be honest, all the guys were were awesome. We're joined the experience being there. We were you know, you'd still competition in you're definitely competing with guys.

I think you you you see how the game has changed. It's no longer. We all know, it's a three point game. But the amount of quality shooters that you saw tonight, and the fact that guys were scored twenty one twenty two and not even finishing in the top five. So yes, you give a lot of credit like everybody was kind of hoping Steph curry back in Charlotte, and where he grew up, and hopefully his brother was going to be in the mix. Nope.

In team do anything for him after the all star selection was now, obviously we are all extremely excited from. I think we most of us found out when we were on the plane going from San Antonio tour Landau. And so you know, we were just obviously extremely excited. You know, we're excited for Rhody and Jarrett do playing in the rising stars game as well. Yeah. It's pretty awesome. Just the fact that you've seen somebody put in so much work. And like I said I've seen him since this summer has focused his attention to detail about professional. His approach has been you know, he's very deserving obviously with well. He's played. But more importantly, just for where he's you know, kind of worries come from with his approach. He's earned it. Get to the breaking news at terrorists. Look in in practice today. I gotta be honest. I actually didn't practice, but he from what I heard. Looks great and was moving really well him and Alan bullet. You know, I don't know exactly what the timetable is on them. You know, obviously, there's no reason to rush guys back that are coming back from fairly significant injuries. But obviously when when they are back. I mean, we're extremely excited about it. Just to add, you know, more of a healthy bodies to to the roster and guys that are are big time players for us. It was funny because when when Kerris went down, I think the overall assessment was that cares was the nets best player at that moment. And since that time Spencer really emerged the Angela's now in all star. Yeah. Terrorists coming back to that. As the guy who has the skills to be among your best players, clearly definitely and can defend multiple positions. All that. I mean to strengthen your yourselves that this moment secure that playoff spot is is incredible. This huge is really is. You know, we, you know, obviously, we went from being an extremely difficult position with guys going down. But like I said the opportunity present. It'd allowed guys to really step up and absorb different roles. And now we're in a fortunate position where we get these guys back and just add to what we've already built on. How many games did you play with the kitten charge? Your basketball reference page is nothing, but a long list of you being sent down and recall. Yeah, I don't know. How many of are just practice days were they had quite a bit. If you play too. I did play. Yeah. I play. I didn't. I played probably I don't know. Maybe like ten fifteen games or so was that meaningful that it do anything for you? Well, yeah. Oh my gosh. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, so when you're when you're in in the midst of the grind of the NBA season, especially when I was in Cleveland, you know, obviously, I was playing a little bit early on. But I wasn't really in a position to learn through a lot of mistakes I made mistakes. I was coming out. You know, we were a championship caliber team. And if you weren't playing championship caliber basketball, you just you're not going to be in. And for me, I guess from a development standpoint sort of selfishly there. There's no benefit to me. I mean, there has been a fit to me sitting and watching and objectively just learning. But there's another thing to have the experience of being able to play, and, you know, going even just practicing in canton. And then playing in the games was extremely beneficial for me for my development. You know, some really coaches our they're actually a lot of guys in the NBA. Now, you know, whether it was, you know, the strains coach trains coach at the time that I was there is now a strength coach in Charlotte. You know, Jordan Fernandez is an assistant with the nuggets. Mike bts is an assistant in Orlando. So guys are you know, they themselves have have planned significant roles in the NBA. And I learned a lot just being there from good good coaches. Good people. Good organization. I looked this up because I was curious the the NBA finals in two thousand fifteen. Yeah. Eleven seconds. You played the last eleven seconds of game seven. Yes..

But de ngelo Russell's are really interesting case here because he's the one guy who came with the pedigree based on on draft of of that expectation, and I think. Were outs around the league about what is this guy going to become maybe he's got a little bit of selfish tendencies a little bit. You know, you know, caught up in in, you know, whatever there was a certain rep attached there. He looks like a much better version of himself this year you've been with them for you know, more what season and a half. Now, what have you seen from Dangelo in terms of his growth is that about his game is a little bit about personality and just maturity what have you seen from him in the last year and a half? Yeah. Obviously, he's improved a lot. But he came in extremely talented. No, no one ever questioned his ability to play basketball, just plugging into the right scenario and playing winning basketball, honestly, and he's really done an unbelievable job of just being you know, sort of the head of the snake of the Brooklyn nets. You know, we really the success that we've had this year has been you know, we've been rely on him for majority of it. You know, he's had some huge games for us. And even the games where he's not like putting up a bunch of points. He's still with the one. That's facilitating. He's the one that's sort of the quarterback out there the coach on the floor. You know, he is an extremely cerebral player. He thinks the game. And he's very very smart. His basketball Q is extremely high and he's constantly thinking he's constantly thinking about how to get guys shots. How to get guys in rhythm. How to get guys touches and get everybody in playing their best basketball. And I think that is. You know that that is true indicator of really special player when somebody on the team is good enough to make everybody else that much better. And you know, lo is really at that spot right now, you know, the way that he's been playing lately, obviously you've seen him do it individually, but he makes everybody else on the floor much better players as well. I think people around the league kind of wondered too for a little while there that you know, Kenny was closing games. A lot with Spencer and not the Angelo. And yeah, there's a lot of Dangelo fans out there. I'd see on Twitter. We're actually you'll very upset about the idea that you hate he's the guy he's the star. He should be and it's slowly changed. And he's taken on a lot of that that Laking. How did how did you see him handle that? I think the NBA is psychologically difficult league a lot times and people don't really realize that and for him. He never wavered. He obviously competitor. And everyone you wanna play you wanna play it end of games. You know, you can't blame anyone for not wanting to be in the end of the game. That's just you know, human nature, we wouldn't be where we're at. If we didn't have that competitive streak in us, and he handled it extremely well. Just stayed even keel always stayed ready. He didn't let that you know, the decisions early on affect him when he was called upon to play and finish out games. And I think you're seeing now you just never know in this league. When you guys might go down guys my good into a slump it just ebbs and flows. There's a lot of things that happen over the course of a two games. And the most important thing is to just constantly consistently in your mind. Stay ready and to be in that moment, and he's an exceptional job of that. And just, you know, being ready when called upon I think what's striking about it too. Is that you know, in the wake of the trade from the Lakers, and and.

"How does he get space for shots? How does he move within the offense? He's I we're going to run a lot of similar stuff. This is somebody that you should try to emulate, and then you kind of build off of that you figure out how you you know, you where you're getting your shots from you work on those in your skill development. And you know, a lot of is teaching learning growing through and stuff out with with your individual guy and just trying to grow from there. Honestly. And I think that approach in itself from a individual development standpoint is sort of unique because it is so detail oriented and focus and obviously seen significant improvement just from a lot of guys. But that's because of the approach I think is that different than what you experienced. It's only been one for you. And everything is I can't speak on behalf of other teams. I know that a lot of teams have an emphasis on individual development. You obviously have a lot of time to focus on above with us is a little bit more unique. Because you know, we, especially when I first got here, we are a lot of young players just trying to again figure out our way in this Lee figure out what our niche was and how we should play. And we were able to learn through a lot of our mistakes. But we were able to kind of have this self realization moments throughout the growing pains where we figured out, you know, who we were as basketball players. I think your first seasonable league you shot somewhere around thirty seven percent from three which is good. Like that's a good solid percentage for a guy who comes into the three point shooter. You're no in that forty five percent range, which is spectacular. You're forced in the league as we record this today. What makes a difference in that that point eight per eight percent of whatever. But that that increments is that about the shots. You're taking is it about selection is it about the shooting stroke itself. Like what what does shooter improve to get those incremental move. Yeah. I think it's all of it to be honest because shooting at the end of the day is all about rhythm and confidence. And so, you know, we got into position now where steadily I've ever improved my percentage each year and a lot has to do which is more confidence in obviously myself. But then and where I'm getting. My shots from the rhythm of the offense. You know, who you're playing with me with the guys on the court. And you know, I go into each game kind of having a an idea of where. Okay. These are probably where I'm going to be able to get my shots from and you know, again, it goes back to that individual development, and as the things that I work on. So it's not like, it's any service prize. When I get into the games are I'm caught off guard taking shots, and I might be unfamiliar with all the shots that I gave him the games or the shots. I practice. There was actually a story about Michael Scotto from the athletic where he noted that your routine involves shooting from specific spots. Yes. So those are those are like you're only spots. Like explain where those are end. Is it is it that rigid for you that you know, obviously unless the clock is running down. But is it really about like these are the spots where I'm most comfortable and most effective. He definitely I think like I said earlier just about I'm not an isolation player. I'm not gonna be facility. I don't work on that. Because I know that. That's not my game. And the things that I work on are very much situational and specific spot driven. So I look look at you know, where I get shots from it makes it a little bit easier when you play against the team once for example. So you know, whether a game against Denver coming up tomorrow. Go back watch the film against Denver. See how they defended against us to last time out kind of warehousing to get shots from and I really will will focus on that in my mind. But then my pre game routine is very consistent with just shots die over the course of my career have traditionally got, and I try, and you know, hammer, those home and be again, it's it's developing the consistency..

"People. So you mentioned development in relation to Kenny Atkinson, the head coach, and yes, Kenny was the guy who got a lot of people's radar years ago when he was Jeremy Lin's to coach with the Knicks and Jeremy was shouting him out almost every night during that Lin sanity run. And he goes to Atlanta works under buttonholes her and again like guys like tomorrow, Carol who's one of your teammates. Now like there were guys who improved their so Kenny got this reputation that I think people wonder when you become the head coach. What does that mean? What does it mean to be a player development guy who who was kind of a specialist as an assistant in? Yeah. You become a head coach what we've seen here. The last year. This is what I think is most impressive about this. A number of you again as we've alluded to earlier, we're kind of cast aside by the franchises. So you've gotten better here. Spencer's gotten better here. Dangelo Russell, I know he comes in as a number two. But still Daniel Russell is a better de ngelo Russell now that he was even his first year with the nets and lower picks like CAIR sliver Jared Allen guys who were low in the first round those are hard. It's hard to ace those picks. And then still you've got to develop them along the way. So everything about this team strikes me as well. Everybody who comes here whether the whether they're staying where they're leaving. They're better off than when they arrive. Yeah. Definitely explained to me as as much as you can about the mechanics of it. What is the player development approach here that made you a better Joe Harris than you were the day that the magic cut you in in a couple of years ago? I think it's just the attention to detail and the self awareness for each specific player. So we all you know, the coaches collectively they kind of sit down. They go through each player almost on a collective basis and talk about where they can help, you know, a Joe Harris improve where where they can help a Damara Carol improve. And then you have a specific coach that works with you. And you know, for me, I'm going through, and I'm working on things that are, you know, things that I'm going to do in the game. I'm not doing things I know anything outside the box. Like, you're not gonna see me doing my individual development and watch me do a bunch of ball handling drills or work. You know in a lot of pick and roll situations. You know, I'm doing things that are situational for me. And I'm looking at players that, you know, probably played in boot and holes or system, for example, when I first came in they give me a lot of clips of of Cal Korver can use like, hey, this is a guy that you should you should watch. See what see see how how does he get open?.

"How you how how have you embraced that as a small town kid from Washington being the Brooklyn hipster now, I've definitely embraced. I me. I think you know, this is my third year here, and I've sort of become a product of my environment say, you know. Definitely taken on the Brooklyn. Look, I guess, you know, hipster as you will with the beard. But really, that's the only thing that's changed is just the fact that I, you know, grow beard, and then all of a sudden, you know, I'm blending with all the local brew baristas and knife artisanal knife makers in the Brooklyn area. Have you tried to make a knife yet? No, no. That's next up on the agenda. I know are you a member I have to ask them a resident of park slope. If you a member of the park slope food coop or now. I haven't quite got there yet. Yeah. Well, thanks for for taking some time out. We are recording this on Tuesday afternoon. So we are still a couple days away from the trade deadline. So it's tense interesting week around the NBA, and we're we can a half away from all star weekend where you are reportedly heading to be part of the three point contest. Yes, how do you prepare for that? I mean, it's, you know, it's funny that don't contest guys. It's always about all these secret workouts? They've got a dunk coach. And they're drawing up plans and blueprints. And yeah, three point is. It's basically just what you do every day. Is there such a thing as preparation for the three point shooter? I mean to be honest. I haven't I haven't practiced. She nothing rack, but I've been told that it is a little bit of a difference. You have to get Justice to you know, grabbing looking down grabbing off the rack and shooting and trying to do it quickly in the whatever minute that you have. So I probably I will definitely practice it. A couple of times I'm not gonna just go into a willy nilly. So. You know, that's definitely leading up this this week or two definitely get some reps on on the rack just practice that obviously my shooting that stuff so stay the exactly the same. But just opposite shooting off rack is a little bit different. There's there's nothing that anybody would have done like, it's not something. You would have practiced in the now right now never practiced it ever before I've never shot off Iraq, actually until the nets had the little promotional thing. Earlier in the year where they were trying to get me into three point contest. And they had me just kinda messing around and take a couple of shots off a standard ball rack. And that was the first time I've ever actually done it before going up against both curry brothers, and it's in their hometown. Besides it's a little intimidating. Yeah. I mean, obviously, you know, I'm fortunate to go, but you know, the competition you look across all the names that are going to be shooting. It's obviously all the premier shooters in this league which is excited, and it's gonna be a lot of fun. But you know, you definitely got your work cut out for you. Yeah. I want to see Dell Curry out there Curtis..

"Overall, pick in two thousand sixteen they got him in a trade for Thaddeus. Young Spencer Dinwiddie picked up off the scrap heap in free agency after he'd been traded by Detroit cut by the Chicago Bulls and Dinwiddie was putting up near all star numbers before he went down a few weeks ago. Jared Allen the twenty second overall pick in two thousand seventeen another pick that they manufactured traded boy on bogdonovich to the Washington. Wizards got the twenty second pick which became Jared Allen. So two picks their Jared, Allen and care slivered in the twenty s manufactured by trading veterans and getting picks and then acing those picks. And then of course, Joe Harris second round pick in two thousand fourteen by the Cavs traded to Orlando wave by Orlando picked up off the scrap heap by the nets. And then got a mentioned Demari Carol who. You know, big contract with Toronto didn't work out didn't perform, well, they're the nets used their cap room to absorb him and take two two picks from Toronto as payments for absorbing that contract. Those two picks a first and a second have become Jenan Moussa and rodeo Kuru who are both looking like very promising young players. They got those three guys tomorrow Carol who's been a very good rotation player for them, plus the two young guys Mussa and kooks for Justin Hamilton, and if you're saying, ooh, yeah. Exactly. Justin Hamilton phenomenal job. I Sean marks to assemble all these guys fantastic job by Kenny Atkinson and his staff for developing them, all and that's the real key to to the Brooklyn nets. That is the story of this franchise as it sits right now they've done a fantastic job in developing guys. Whether they're young guys coming in straight out of the draft. Whether they are rehab projects from somewhere else guys who didn't work out somewhere else. Everybody who's playing for Brooklyn in the last year or two has improved by being there. Incredible testament to what they are building. And by the way, they could have to max slots this summer to spend on free agents. And I can't imagine why. Kevin durant? Kawhi Leonard Jimmy Butler, anybody else wouldn't consider the nets because they've already got a great supporting cast sitting there waiting great arena there in New York. No, it's not the Nixon. I understand the Knicks have the mystique, but the nets have all the same advantages in the market. So it'll be interesting. I'd be interesting to see whether the superstars do consider them. But I wanted to have on Joe Harris because Joe as much as any of these guys, I mean, they're all similar story. He hit him is is what they're building what they've become. And he gives us that insight into what what would that mean when we talk about culture or player development? Joe Harris is a product of that. So I thought it'd be great to have him on this team as I say is exceeded all expectations. Joe Harris who now, you know, the fourth ranked three point shooter in the NBA by percentage has exceeded. Al- explications and got a nice contract. As reward last summer. There are really fun story. Joe Harris has a really fun guy to talk to. He's got that hipster beard that makes him look so perfect in Brooklyn. So we talk about the hipster beard pad to talk about the player development talk about what you do to prepare for the three point contest at all star weekend, not normal to just grab a bunch of balls off the rack, and and shoot. And we talk about his brief cameo in the twenty fifteen NBA finals while he was still with the Cavaliers fun conversation. Really enlightening. I think you're gonna enjoy it. And so here, we go my interview with Joe Harris, I'm now joined by the most Brooklyn of all the Brooklyn nets guys just as skilled at hitting a three point shot as putting three shots of Espresso endure Ganic, then brewed lots. How's that for an intro? Joe hairs that that's an intro right there. I definitely haven't heard that one before. I didn't work in the artisanal and need to work in artisanal and beard is artistic beard is definitely artisanal or this. This has become your persona especially this year, not really until the beard, suddenly the beard arrives. And now, you are you're like more than just the Brooklyn. Nets greatest three point shooter. You're like the nets mascot. Me of Brooklyn..

"Bleacher report. My guest today is heading Charlotte soon to compete in the three point shootout. Yes, that is Joe Harris of the Brooklyn nets. He'll be taken on the curry brothers, and some others and representing the Brooklyn nets. Yeah. The nets one of the feelgood stories of the NBA season felt like it was overdue to bring on somebody from the franchise. I know a bunch of you have been requesting that of heard from you and apple podcasts in the comments section there and on Twitter folks, clamoring for somebody from the nets because this has been one of the better stories in the NBA this season, clearly the Sacramento Kings out west similar, and I feel overdue to get somebody from the kings on here. But the nets are just a fascinating. And I kind of want to go into this real quick before. I bring on Joe Harris because I think it's been lost. Just how incredible their turnaround has been it was only a couple years ago. They were deemed the most hope. Franchise in the NBA. I think by ESPN, and it was totally justified. Right. They they not only had no talent in the wake of the tear down of that. Joe Harris, Joe Harris. The Joe Johnson Darren Williams brook Lopez era, de unfortunate, jevon Garnett Paul Pierce trade that cost them all those picks. And so when Sean marks and Kenya Kitson took over few years ago. It was considered hopeless. Not only because they were you know, they had no talent. But they had no picks to get that talent. That was a unique situation. I don't think there had been anything like it in modern NBA history or or possibly ever to be a franchise that was that far down and with no clear path to getting better. And it's interesting to look at this. The nets were lasting in the playoffs in two thousand fifteen so it's only been three years that they've been out. And right now, they are as I record the sixth in the east twenty eight and twenty seven record and they're pretty certain to make the playoffs. And so it will only have been a three year. Really? There are five teams in the NBA folks that have been out longer most of which are not going to make it this year either. I'm gonna go through this real quick just for perspective here the Knicks and the nuggets have not been in the playoffs since twenty thirteen. So that's two years longer than the nets drought. And of course, the nuggets will make this year, the Knicks someday, but the nuggets are going to breakthrough in spectacular fashion. But those teams have been out longer. The magic have not made the playoffs since twenty twelve been in the lottery every year still no closer to the playoffs. The Phoenix Suns have not made the playoffs since two thousand ten the tail end of the Nash Stoudamire era and they've been in lottery every year and are absolutely nowhere near finally making the playoffs. And then finally, of course, the Sacramento Kings, no playoffs since two thousand six as a loan drought, folks. And again handle their picks still couldn't breakthrough and the nets with no picks under their own control traded away or given in pick swops. Are somehow here on the doorstep of the playoffs with what we got twenty seven. Or so games to go is incredible. And they've done it with mostly cast-offs and rehab projects. Their highest picked player, of course, Dangelo Russell who they got from the Lakers who were tossing them aside. The Lakers were ready to move on the nets trade brook Lopez and the pick that became Kyle. Kuzma, let's be fair. But still de ngelo Russell now all star has very much earned it. And he's. I don't even he's not even the face the franchise. They've multiple faces of this franchise because they have they have gotten so many guys who have just come here and overachieved care slivered who was their best player when he went down a couple of months ago twentieth..

"Do that but what's your approach when you're writing article how do you decide which player a team you're going to write about i think most of all what i'm most curious about is now the stories that people are ready talking about and finding ways that i can add to that conversation so a lot of the time if there are situations where people are talking about someone like joe harris who scored thirty points against the brown james s today it's a it's going to be interesting because you don't want to just say joe harris scored thirty points anyone can see that by by look look box score and noticing that's a player that i don't really hear much about it's pretty interesting to hear that he scored thirty points against cleveland knew he used to play for cleveland you know if you can go in and find whatever resources you have to learn more about that player provide more information and dig a little bit deeper that's kind of the strategy that i've always used to make sure that people are reading my content because everyone has seem the breaking news and i'm not a civil one that's always breaking that news so if they can find something more if there's a rumor about a player let's see where his former coaches are coaching now maybe those players those coaches are going to want to try to get into come to their new team if you can find someone who's looking to maybe restart his career what teams are available that have cap space that might be one to take a flyer teams like brooklyn teams like that so how long is looking to find you know little tidbits like as he scored this kind of points before like is that his career high.
