"Right? I'd say so. I mean, recently, the race is on this last year of his deal, right? I believe so. Yeah. I mean, it fits a lot nicer than even saint Joe Harris, even though we probably wouldn't mind Joe Harris either. But I still keep going back to this point and made the other time too was if Joel Harris was healthy, would it more teams be trying to trade for him? That's true if the nets really wanted to clear that money off the books. Right, like if Joe Harris is healthy, would you rather have him or buddy healed? Oh, Harris. Yeah. 100%. So even at his contract value, I still really have. But I mean, those contracts are pretty similar. I agree. And I just think Harris is the better player if healthy, which is a big, big, big issue at this point. And another probably caveat. Another maybe healthy player, the Lakers I want to gamble on. It's weird feeling like the Lakers are the team that has to be conservative and really careful with their assets and can't overpay and might even be financially trying to be conservative there too. I just feel like there'd be I feel like I guess maybe this speaks to the internal confidence I'll talk about earlier. If the Lakers really felt they were just one piece away from really competing for a title, they would have probably overpaid and got a deal done already. It's true. And they have overpaid in the past. TJ said, if the Lakers pass on a Cairo trade because they want to hold on to both first rounds, they're essentially voiding their partnership with LeBron. I don't think they will. I don't think that I think if push comes to shove if a Kyrie trade is on the table and they have to give up both first. If they get back something with Kyrie or whatever, I think they'll do that. I think they'll get that deal done. I think they're waiting on doing anything else until they know for sure. That the nets are just not going to trade Kyrie period. Yeah, I agree.

"Do you think that's accurate? I mean, I would definitely be upset if we lost J hop would be more like upset like dang it. Man, he was a great player for us, but happy for him. You know, like being able to go play and get the opportunity to have a full roster spot. I don't know if I would riot or whatever. I'd be upset. Yeah, no, no. Think about this though. Last season, it's the worst season in Lakers history. Yep. This and I'm not talking about record wise. Talk about everything else. This summer league, they've had some losses and things, but in general, this has been fun. It's been a long time since we've had fun watching basketball. Right? So because of that, there's going to be this stronger connection, I suppose, to jayhawk, than to when you Gabriel, because jayhawk was the bright spot. We had him as the summer league MVP for the Lakers. On a team that was fun. When Gabriel was a guy who showed some stuff, and I think he's a fit for the Lakers. But everybody wants to erase the memories of this last season's team. I think that matters in this type of discussion. Is there anybody else we would even consider cutting to make open roster spot for? The only other person that's on a not a fully guaranteed contract is Austin Reeves. You're not cutting him. You're not cutting out. You're not cutting any of the guys they just signed. So. Yeah. Fernando says, if healed is a bad defender, why get him instead of giving swider a run? Isn't healed to overrate it because we missed out on him because of Russ? I mean, Matt the optimist Peralta would say, he's the one that got away, right? So maybe you're going after buddy healed because you feel like you've missed out on him a few times before. You had him, and then you went and got Russ. That might be a factor here, but I can't look at as good as sweaters been. This is summerly, I'm not looking at wider and saying, oh, there you go. Don't need buddy healed now. Yeah. There's a big difference between buddy healed and what cold sweaters done right now. There's a big difference between buddy healed and every other guard they have on the roster. Or Joe Harris or Kyrie Irving in every guard on the roster. You can't take look, I'm excited about Cole swider, but you can't take what he's done in summer league. You can just assume that's going to translate into the regular season. That's not the way some really works. And that's why I would not give up I would not give up. I would not convert him to a standard minimum contract. So I was a spot. Until you get like a month deep into the season, maybe try to plan for a little bit with the parent team. And then make your decision.

"Need? Is something from LeBron? In the next week, two weeks. Saying, I plan to re sign with the Lakers. Then that leverage flies out the window for the nets and then maybe you can figure out a way to get a deal done. Until then, then that's we'll continue to hope that LeBron will use that extension as leverage over the Lakers and force them to give up more than they want in a Irving trade. Now the question is, would LeBron follow through with that though and leave? Maybe? I think he likes being in Southern California. I think he likes being LA, I think he likes the Lakers. I don't think he ideally wants to leave. I think he will do everything he can to make it work with the Lakers. I don't think he's looking for an exit. Tony PR, with a super chat, said teams don't like to help the Lakers in trades. THT's value is greater than Beverly, but if we keep Russ, yes, we need to get rid of THD and get shooting. I would agree with that. I think the THT and Russ are just, they're not a good combination. So essentially you've got two what? Your highest paid player and your fourth highest paid player in RAS and THT and they can't share the floor together because their weaknesses on the offensive end are too similar. That's not good. It's not good at all. I believe the Lakers need to get the nets deal done, whatever the cost. I would hold off on whatever the cost, but I think as long as it's reasonable, you do it. And if it's me, look, it's not my money. So I'm not as worried about it, but if you have to throw in two picks and you're getting Joe Harris, if you're getting Seth curry, okay? You can talk me into that. You can talk me into that if you have to give up both picks in order to get the deal done. If it's that or no deal and Russ starts next season as the Lakers point guard? I'm probably doing it. I'm probably doing it. The preference will be to get both. Joe Harris would be to do Russ, THT, none. For Joe Harris, Seth curry, Kyrie. That would be the preference. Maybe you remove none from the deal or something like that. I have to look and see if the math works. But if the nets are looking to try to save money, generator bigger trade exception. But if you can do something like that, that's where I'm okay, throw it in both picks if I'm the Lakers. But ultimately, I think it's going to be important that the Lakers just figure out a way to get it done. Just get it done, move forward, clear the air for next season.

"Are you still that way despite the shooting struggles that we've seen? Oh yeah, absolutely. I'm still high. I mean, again, I'm not going to waver my confidence after what four summer league game 5 summer league games at this point. I will say this because jabari went undrafted, I think, unless I'm missing something, I would have so much love that day I got you bar walker. Everyone on drafted or if they had or they have bought another second round pick and then used it to go select jabari walker. There's a couple other guys that wish they had traded up to get, but no, my confidence definitely does not waver after a few summer league games. All right, Jason T, I've fallen victim to Joe Harris highlights low love how he comes off picks and quickly going to his right looking for hope, guys. Look, if Joe Harris is healthy, he's worth his contract. Just the questions about how healthy is after the ankle issues, but he's very, very good. And I don't think that that's actually what to move on from him, but from a salary perspective, they might. So yeah, look, I would not be as long as the Lakers are happy with his medicals. Joe Harris could be a great fit. Great. All right, Intel while the last super chat says, F the toenail clippers. All right. It's a good way to end it. All right, everybody.

"But if the occam's included the one helpful thing about his salary is you could probably find a way to get curry back in that deal as well. And build out something bigger, you know, Brooklyn would probably be like, will you eat Joe Harris and the raptors would be like, well, we're giving you infinite picks. We don't also want to take that kind of injury risk, but maybe you can build something larger that gets you a curry or someone like curry back as well. From what I've heard, Joey Harris ankle is feeling good and I don't really understand how we went from Joe Harris essential role player to Joe Harris sunk caused nobody wants them. Like if Joe Harris is healthy, yeah, I'll take Joe Harris. He's a really good player. I love a healthy Joe Harris. I just, you know, it's the reporting around his injury has been like pretty pretty up and down or pretty spotty and I don't know, but a few bigger fans of Joe Harris than me. You're talking like 46 47% on threes and a guy who contributes a lot of other stuff. Like I feel like him sliding in that deal would be not to overdo the parallel, but it's like, oh, Danny Green's in this deal too? How the heck did that happen? The raptors also got $5 million in cash in that Kawhi tray, didn't they? Yes. I mean, you think Joe size is gonna cut them off a piece to take on Joe Harris contract two? 5, I don't want to revisit that. A couple of things you just struggling. You mentioned three point shooting. Here are Pascal siakam's numbers on catch and shoot threes for the last four seasons. In order from longest to go to last season, 38 and a half percent, 36%, 31%, 36 and a half percent. I know that siakam is taking a lot of this off season to triple down on becoming a good, better improved catch and shoot three point shooter. That could be a game changer for these guys depending on how this team looks next year. That's neither here. Nor there. You mentioned Ann and OB plus Trent. The combination of Bobby marks and I have been texting a lot poor guy. And you know be plus Thad young plus kem birch is a little bit short of the salary, the raptors need to take in Durant. You can probably overcome the shortfall with like a couple of small contracts and not anyone else from the core. That does turn it into like a 5 for one kind of deal, which is always complicated, but it's possible Boucher has base year compensation and hard cap complications that I just don't feel like talking about because my brain hurts. So again, basically what it comes down to for me is, if I'm Toronto, I can't trade you too of an obie Barnes and siakam. I just can't because I'm crippling my team too much. I have to win immediately in the first two years of Durant's deal because of his age and that's just those guys are too good. I can't give you two of them. If I can give you one of them, we have things to talk about. If the one is barns, maybe Toronto says we don't have anything to talk about. And I am tired of hearing how stupid it is to quibble. And this is not everybody saying this, but there's a minority of fans who are like, oh my God, raptors, galaxy brain, who are these, all these idiots saying, it's a difficult decision to trade Scotty Barnes for Kevin Durant. This is Kevin Durant. It's an absolute no brainer. Scotty Barnes who cares about Scotty Barnes. Maybe he's good. This is Kevin freaking Durant. Like, these are the same guys who said this about James Harden, 8 months ago, and Brooklyn is with all their picks out the door because the deal went bust. Like, it's just not a no brainer. Is it Kevin Durant? An all time great player. The most malleable superstar ever, a much easier fit in James Harden. Yes, yes and yes, is he under contract for four years, which is unprecedented for a player like this to be traded. Yes, is it just, does that make it just like you're an idiot if you think about if you lose sleep over Scottie Barnes? Well, if that's the case, then we say ujiri is an idiot. You want to call him an idiot to his face. The guy who built a 2019 raptors and built the Denver Nuggets and did the Carmelo Anthony trade, you Twitter GM are better than that guy? Okay, well then I guess the raptors should fire him and hire you. I mean, it's a real, the cost of these deals to your future are real when you're talking about a player like Scotty Barnes, I happen to be super high on him, but that's still a real thing. Yeah, and Kevin Durant is going to be 34 before the start of the season. He has four years left on his deal, but there's a good chance or nonzero chance at least that you're getting KD for two, maybe three years and accepting that the back end is not going to be great. And I think Minnesota had the way that with Rudy Gobert as well, where is a 34 year old Rudy Gobert making $47 million gonna be a positive asset? Probably not, but you like the way it improves your window this next little bit. Katie's played 90 games over the last three years. It's not that long ago that we were wondering how he'd come back from the Achilles stuff. So, and I mean, he didn't look Boston's defense did a good job on him in that playoff series, but that's front of mind for some people too. So yeah, again, back to my earlier point. I don't think there's a right or wrong answer here in terms of how a fan feels, but I don't think it's as simple as you trade anything in the world than everything for Kevin Durant because again, as we've laid out here, as you've laid out, if you trade too much for Kevin Durant, you no longer have the pieces around Kevin Durant to win a championship, and what's the point in trading for 34 year old Kevin Durant if you don't have the pieces around him to win a championship. We haven't even mentioned Fred bam bleed as a possible piece either, and I think part of that is that that's the guy who you're like, yeah, you need that guy around Kevin Durant to fully maximize what you're doing and make sure you can win. Also, they have no other point guard. You can make of that, make of that. No other, let's say trusted rotational point guard. Yes. Now they would tell you there's no such thing as point guards anymore in Toronto. That's an American thing only. There's no point guard on the metric system. I'm not going to make any, I love Canada. I love Toronto. I love Toronto specifically. I have not been to that many places other than Toronto in Canada and Montreal, but I love Toronto. Zach, I'm not joking. I have a stack of gift certificates on my fridge to my right for next

"Right? Because when you look at, you look at Joe Harris, 6 6. He's got a better shot. We've heard that the holdup or one of the holdups is Seth curry versus Joe Harris. The Lakers won Seth curry, who's only got one year left on his contract. And I like him a lot. But Joe Harris at 6 6 offers you other things. In addition to the same kind of shooting, they actually both for their careers have the exact same three point shooting percentage. But if you can get either of those guys, that shouldn't be a hold up in any way in my mind because of the skills that you're going to get from a healthy Joe Harris and the positional fit on this team. This team right now as constructed doesn't make a lot of sense with Russell Westbrook at the helm. Now you add in Joe Harris and you add in Kyrie Irving. It makes sense that so the Lakers holding this thing up if they are over Seth curry versus Harris it's nonsense. There's no reason for that. Just do the deal then. Yeah. Yeah. But I think part of it is you alluded to this earlier. They're bidding against themselves. Nobody wants Kyrie right now, so Lakers are kind of playing this game where, okay, we kind of drag it out a little bit and see if we can get Seth curry, who we really, really won't. Now, if it gets to the point, you mentioned this earlier in the hotel, a month later, so another team comes in. You don't want to wait too long. So I think they're playing a good right now, but you don't want to wait. It's a fine line. And I think the Durant piece is a huge one, because if Durant ends up getting moved, then Brooklyn is like, you know, the game is up. Clearly, we know what direction they are going. Whereas if a month from now, there's no Durant trade and he's sticking around, I don't know if the Lakers do have the leverage in that situation because I think Brooklyn can say we don't have our future picks. We need to win. We need to be competitive because losing does us no good and Durant sticking around him and Kyrie allegedly still want to play together. And so I think it's kind of like this Durant thing. If he gets moved, then the Lakers position strengthens. But if a month from now the reports are, nobody wants to he's going to ride it out with Brooklyn, I think the Lakers position is weakened. And so there's a lot of gambling going on if you're the Lakers right now. Well, I think it would be nobody could afford Durant. Let's face it. I think everybody wants Durant. But after the Rudy Gobert trade, I mean, that's all the picks from Minnesota. So topping that offer is going to be tough. And of course, he should get more in return than what you saw in Minnesota give up for Rudy Gobert. So I think that actually complicated the social situation that Gobert trade has made this an even tougher sell. There was something that was put out there. And we've heard from a few different places that the nets actually want to keep winning, regardless of what happens here. They want to keep winning games. They have to trade Katie, which makes sense.

"There is nothing you can do to stop those lineups. For shooters around claxton and Drummond and two of the shooters are Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, you can tell me, well, all we've got to do is outscore them. I mean, they're not going to get stops. That's the answer is, okay, good luck. Like that was the whole conceit of the hardened team was you're the only way we can win is to outscore their crappy defense. Okay, you couldn't do it. That team is 100% completely unguardable. And if you put Simmons in for claxton and Drummond at any point, there's just no answer. And like you might beat them four out of 7, you might outscore him four out of 7. I think the bucks definitely would, but that team is a problem. And if they ever got joked like next year, if they have Joe Harris, I don't know who knows who you're the other team, but like, you put enough shooting around those dudes, there's nothing you can do. Well, I would love to see a nets heat series because if anybody can slow them down, well, in the Celtics two, all the time lord's a big part of that defense. But the heat obviously are a dominant defensive team. And I've said the best solution to the heat's half court office of problems might be to face the nets. The other way around too, the best solution in the nets defense of problems might be to face the heat. Well, and to your point, the heat and the Celtics are two of the 5 best defenses in the NBA, the Celtics for the last three months have been the best defense since I don't know. The freaking yo Russell Celtics. The teen wolf team in the movies. I don't know. I mean, you can't do anything with them. And they can switch, right? And so that's the antidote to a lot of staying at a rotation so the nets don't get open threes, but the whole recipe of the nets and this was triply true with Hardin was, okay, go ahead and switch. We have the best one on one players in the world. Like, have at it. They have one fewer without Hardin, but still, I wouldn't take that team lately. I wouldn't just write them off as a first round out unless they get Milwaukee in which case they're in trouble.

"Certainly not moving in the right direction there for him. Joe Harris, the Brooklyn and ankle surgery for him. We already knew he was going to be out for the season, but now it's confirmed. He had ankle surgery, and he will not be available till next year. I mean, one of the best shooters in the NBA and the Brooklyn Nets will not have his services at least for the playoffs this year and hopefully he'll be back and make a full recovery at the beginning of next season. Yeah, obviously we focused on Kyrie all year. We focused on James Harden that he didn't play for them. We continue to monitor and watch what will happen with Ben Simmons. And it almost kind of, I think, got forgotten. Definitely not by nets fans, but by the rest of us that Joe Harris hasn't been there all year..
"joe harris" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"It didn't, but now it's over. So we have James Harden and I wish him well. I think it's going to be pretty great in Brooklyn. If he starts doing those things that they need him to do and screen and roll and operate out of the dunker spot and all those kinds of things. It'll definitely be a better fit in Brooklyn than it wasn't Philly. Man, I remember there was like a stretch in his last year on his rookie contract where they started using him as a role man. And it was just like unbelievable. Like he was so good at it just from the jump. And you just want him to be that, but part of it is too. It doesn't seem like he is interested in that. He's made so many public comments over the years about wanting to be a point guard and wanting to be this and wanting to be that. And sometimes you're not that guy. You need to do one of two things. You need to either improve they score and shooter for yourself or you need to fall back into being more of the secondary guy. It's in either or. It's not a you can do both things. Like you need to either improve or you need to fall back. And he never really improved. And because of that, he might be perfect for this Brooklyn team because of it because Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are going to take all the shots. He should have all the open space in the world to create shots on the second side of the court. I am so excited for whenever we eventually get lineups with Kyrie and Kevin Durant and Joe Harris and Ben Simmons and then throw whatever guard out there and throw whatever floor space where you went out there, Seth curry's there now. Obviously you can use him in this situation, right? I don't care if those teams are going to give up a 150 points like per game. I just want to watch them play offense because they're going to be really fun to watch play offense. So I don't know. I don't know where Ben goes. I think Ben Simmons and Zion Williamson right now are the two biggest questions in the NBA point blank. Zion's probably number one because where the fuck is I'm Williamson. Like you listen to David Griffin's talk today. And he was literally like, well, anecdotally, things seem to be going great. Like, I can't tell you, but anecdotally things seem to be fine. And it's just like, wait, you're like running the team. How are you going off of anecdotal information at this point? How is that a thing? So that's the number one question, but Ben Simmons, I genuinely believe entered the NBA as one of the, I don't know 5 most talented teenagers to enter the league in the last decade, maybe even two decades, honestly. He's that gifted. He's 6 foot ten, he's incredible athlete, and he can do the way he thinks about basketball. So genuinely special and creative that he could do anything and be anything that he would want to be on the court if he would put time into it and really genuinely decide he wants to be great. I don't know. It's just a bummer. It's a bummer the way it's worked out. Yeah, for sure..

"So he always go in on 33. He's going to be 33 here on Christmas. I don't know if I want to be the team paying him next year and potentially the season after that. However, he's shooting 45% from three right now. Like he's incredible in terms of his efficiency at the moment. Now, he's that sustainable probably not, but he's still probably the best shooter that's out there on the market unless of course the nets go ahead and they do move Joe Harris. So I'm torn in terms of what the rockets get for Eric Gordon, what the interest is around him. I know they're going to be a motivated seller. He's playing great in terms of his shooting efficiency. Teams are going to be interested in that. But the contract is the only thing holding me back from saying this is a full go 100%. He gets moved. Yeah, if you felt good that he was going to be healthy all the way into a playoff run that you hope goes into May or June. If you're a contender, yeah, you'd grab one without even thinking about it and you'd move on because of the production. He's also not just a shooter, right? Like he's a guy who can do some scoring off the dribble. It can get to the basket a little bit, so that also helps his overall profile. But yeah, you're right, it's that it's the contract. In the way that final year is structured. This is where it becomes kind of interesting if you're the opposing team. So it's fully non guaranteed at 20.9 million. So you can effectively be out of it for nothing. Unless Gordon makes the all star team this year next year. Well, that's not going to happen. I feel very confident in that. Or the team he is on wins the championship in 22 or 23. If you're a contender, you're right here presumably acquiring him to go win a championship. Absolutely. But then if you do, now we get to pay him $20.9 million when he's what 35 years old. So that becomes a little bit more of a where are we at with this? So yeah, that is that's just something you have to factor in. But again, if you went in a championship, you do all sorts of things that you can write off because at that point a lot of times fans are like, hey, whatever..

"From three but you know we saw guys. Like joe harris and doffs towns. That are shooters get paid well. But he's obviously gonna make that much but shooters are always in demand in free agency and he is expected to cash in. I just think that he could fit. May be more into milwaukee financial structure. Right now than bobby portis. I agree definitely more realistic. Option to return between him and portis I think good chance he comes. He could end up getting via taxpayer. Mid level since his non vert is like i think three miller something or maybe even lower or or maybe like two and a half now something like that but he he started off really hot in the playoffs and then he kinda cooled off since the miami series but still shot forty forty five percents from three last year so i think this was really a great experience. Because you brought up dhabi's rutan's he was another guy who didn't really get the best opportunity with the spurs. As soon as he went to another team he got on leased and something similar happened to bryn forbes this year i think he's really being noticed now and i think a lot of teams should have interested in. We'll have interested him this summer. Options a pipe dream scenario would be that they could get back both bobby and forbes for non Even have the emily us on someone else. But you brought up joe harrison. Dhabi's burton's he's not gonna get that that offer this off season. I would be surprised if he does. But what if he came back on a one or two year deal where he's making around the the tax payer mid level which is that six million To raise more than double what he just made and then if he plays well he can get back the market and maybe earn as much as the joe.

"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.

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.

But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple.

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.

"Way didn't overreact to tame the planet home. But crowd they're gonna make shots on way. Just make sure to be executed. On the other end that we got stopped when it matters so Yeah, We were stressed too much. This time. You can make sure that the best you continue in the lesion. It's a good defensive team, one of the best defensive teams in the league and they're gonna have to rely on that defense. To win a championship. And Anthony Davis. Sometimes, Anthony Davis will float a little bit. And You know, I saw this in Kentucky. So it's not. It's just his personality. Because LeBron you know that presence you know, it's it's omnipresent. And you know, you're kind of waiting to kind of fit in with what LeBron is doing. And I think it should be reversed. I really think Anthony Davis should be like you. Follow me. I got to be the guy who dominates Get to the free throw line. Forced the issue a little bit here. I don't want him shooting fadeaway jumpers. I want him. Creating foul trouble getting inside getting to the free throw line. Just start there. Anytime you struggle. Good. We're not habit. But you know, good philosophy is to attack the rim. Try to get some free throws. Just try to get into a flow there, and that's what I saw with Anthony Davis in Game one. Was just floating. He was on the perimeter. He's taken fade away's Get to the hoop. Get a foul! Get to the free throw line. Get a couple of points. Just start you contribute a little bit. And you saw that last night, but You know it's going to come down to supporting cast as greatest LeBron and a D. R. And we're last year supporting cast has to play well. Look at the Nets last night. You got the Big three. But when Joe Harris is hitting 73 pointers when Blake Griffin is attacking the rim That's different. That's where if one of the two or two of the three Don't have big games of the Big three. Then you have a supporting cast. Or if there's an injury, somebody steps up. This is really important. If Anthony Davis goes down, the Lakers aren't winning. Really, That's what it is. If Kyrie goes down, the Nets can still win. If Cady goes down, the Nets can still win. If hardened, goes down, the Nets can still win. If Anthony Davis goes down, Lakers aren't winning. Now, if LeBron Somehow gets injured. You're not winning there easy either. 8773 d p show.

Um Hackers responded to the interview that Aaron Rodgers did on the mother ship with Kenny Mayne, but they had to because you have the O T A s The coaches air there, and Matt LeFlore had to talk to the media. And he had this to say about Aaron Rodgers. Aaron definitely knows how we feel about him. How he's such an important part to our football team. Such an important part of our organization. And, you know, we're just going to continue to try toe work through this and hopefully can get him back in the building at some point, Okay? I don't know what they're working through. I'd really be curious. Because other than a full apology, somebody falling on their sword. Somebody getting fired? Or maybe a trade for Julio Jones. Arthur Smith is the New Falcon's head coach, and he talked about the Julio Jones situation did Julio asked for a trade before the draft. And not to combat my door's always open. My phone's always on and there's a level of trusting that we want to build here with the players. All the players know that again. On my end, we have private conversations. Those are private. And I'm gonna keep it that way, Okay? People keeping an in house there. That's smart. Don't need to go on TV. Yes, Todd. But if he didn't ask for a trade, it would be an easy answer your next trip, and he hasn't touched on anything other than that response means there's gotta be something that I'm gonna guess that they came to the Falcons and said Um hey, Julio, is available. I'd like to trade I'm done here. What if he said, you know, I've got his number. Apparently everyone has his phone number. Yeah, that you call him up right now. Put him on the air. If you want to. We'll talk to Chris Simms about this situation with Julio Jones and Chris has two teams circled as to where Julio wants to go. Yeah, I'm a club. I haven't guessed. Great. I've narrowed down the 13. 13 13. Yeah, there's 32 teams. How does he do to I have to hear how he does it Well, he's an insider. Well, I am using logic here. Which insiders generally don't have there. At least 13 teams who should Okay, let's go. Let's do against me right now. Well, I am. Are you ready to deliver? Is America ready for this against the grain? McLovin has 13 options for Julio and I tell you guys to tell me any of these. Don't make perfect sense. Okay? All right. It started out with the Indianapolis Colts. I mean, come on. Add that Carson went, that is seems like a no brainer of me. You want to make sure went succeeds. So you gotta have Julio Jones and they have all the day of cap space. They should be. The totally already has a problem with your first one is your premise for all 13 teams that this quarterback could use another weapon? It's only 11 of the 13. That's what I was worried about. Because yes, if you went Hey, Jack Prescott. Yeah, sure. Why not? That's the one thing they have eight all pro receivers. They're actually not on my list. Well, that was how the conversation started with, you know, Skip and Shannon. They were talking about the Cowboys because Skip loves the Cowboys. He's like is, you know is he gonna He wants to go to the cowboy because he had a Cowboys. Shirt honored sweatshirt on that's a one position the Cowboys actually don't need. It's unbelievable that they know there's been and he was wearing that cowboy shit. Okay to the Titans. Okay? Yes. Ryan Tannehill could use another weapon. But more importantly, you keep him away from Carson Wentz, and the cult was you know the Titans and colt where everyone into in that division. And they could use like a big possession Receiver. Obvious number three New England Patriots. We've gone through this him and camera, friends, internal discussions. Don't tell Pooh pooh internal discussions. There is the best kind of discussion. I don't know if anybody had internal discussions, But Vegas has the Patriots as the favorite, Okay? Las Vegas Raiders, Because first of all, it's required that any list of where players going to go Las Vegas Raiders have to be on. I don't know why you're always the Patriots Well, and the Raiders are always right behind. You ever seen them? Not linked, but they really, you know, they could kind of use a big receiver like Julio Jones. Okay, five. The other team that all whatever there's a receiver the Baltimore Ravens. It's true they could users you but any time there's a free agent receiver the Baltimore Ravens because people worried about the Mark Jackson's Passing really number one of my own. It doesn't matter dicey. San Francisco 40 Niners. Kyle Shanahan reunited with Julio Jones. Train lands. If he gets in, you know he could use a big baron wide receiver. Okay. Number seven. Los Angeles Rams. They have lesson. No cap room there so far into the whole cap room. But the Rams proved my theory that everybody always finds Cap room. There's always seven moves away from getting cap room. They always they always get a Jalen Ramsey doesn't matter. The Ramseys already traded all their picks forever. They can get this guy and they need this guy. Number eight. The Los Angeles charges we have whatever this yesterday, Justin Herbert, what would help his M v P cause even more than Royal Jones, number nine. This is actually not talked about, but I think you'll like it. Washington football team. Because they don't have a quarterback. So you might as well bring in his stud receiver. They have such a good defense. Are they like a piece away from being good quarterback away? Yeah. Okay, So if you're not gonna get the quarterback, and they have Ryan fits magic, you might as well be throat. Julio Jones. All right. Number 11 or 10. I'm not sure I've completely lost count. Build out the Eagles. See, I would trade Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. Yes to the Washington football team. That's actually kind of brilliant. I'm gonna take credit for that. 11. The Philadelphia Eagles save drafted jailer Reagor last year, Devante Smith this year. So, basically, they needed receiver. They have, like four draft picks..

"We'll ads to play the five for them to be at their best than eighty. Ever play the five. No like i mean he did. But here's like in terms of things like like their best lives with marketing. Worse out there playing the five four. Whatever you wanna call it but just they had the ability to played white. They have the ability to pledge of illinois. Didn't play as much in the playoffs but having the optionality to go and give different looks even if they're maybe not great looks like even the other day I think it was again in that knicks. Game like lamarcus. Aldridge is not great. I get that there are defensive concerns and you don't want take a bunch of Post up attempts. But like if marcus aldridge is out there. And they're running a double drag with james harden joe harris and the marks aldridge in. Its two papers. Like how the hell do you defend that. How how do you defend. James are going to the rim with lamarcus shooting forty forty percent from three over the last few seasons joe harris. Who hasn't missed the three. Since i was eleven like i. I just you know defendant. You just hope you get a back alley and even then if that's not worth okay. Then they have nick clashing who can come on off. The bench gives them gives them more of a role man. More of a somebody who can work in as the screener and also does a lot more defensively and also lamarcus aldridge like not good defensively like he can give you looks rim-protector and even if he's not great at it he's asked all he gives exactly he gives you something blake griffin not a good rim-protector not particularly mobile defense blake. He gives you another guy who can pass who can handle the ball who can space the floor. Space too well in brooklyn like. I just think we're really underselling. They got blake griffin lamarcus. Aldridge for nothing. And i understand that. They're legit concerns about how they hold up in on on defense in the playoffs. That's why they're playing them now figuring it out. That's why the andre jordan isn't playing recently because they're testing everything. I've loved what steve. Nash is doing with testing everything. And trying new things and trying to see what you can get out of this and yes classes minutes have been down but i do think they're gonna end up going back to them a lot more Down the stretch of the season or at least in the playoffs. Like i just think we're really underselling the importance of versatility because teams. Like think about the and this is obviously a far cry. It's so different from this nets team. But you have your three guys like you have or i would almost argue for because of what Joe harris does for you like that guy should always be on the ford close games for the most part blake. You have to have versatility in your role players for play authors and again. That's like i mentioned with the lakers. Like you have teams that can run through the playoffs like the grit and grind. Grizzlies got southeastern conference finals. And then they could not change how they were playing because that was the right any. That's all they can do. And that's not the belittle them. They were a fantastic team but golden state was able to scheme against them and take away what they were doing and they could encounter it. And that's that's just what happens to teams that aren't built with the kind of versatility that a team like brooklyn has had the ability to do because of like the way that they've been set up so like if they're really struggling out on the perimeter and they wanna play more stretchy and switch everything. You can play jeff green at the five.

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.

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

It also underscored that there's no excuse that the Nets don't massively succeed me saying that they're going to fail. Is a fairly bold statement. Just in the sense it's highly unlikely on paper because of what you saw last night, and it's highly likely in reality. As a food diary is shame on that guy. Wanna joke. The reason my least favorite athlete in the history of sports. Is J color. Is because he would quit on his teammates and they knew it. And Cutler and I've talked to the Bears about this former bears his teammates. Color had no respect he had opened disrespect. For his team. That applies a curry Irving, too. They're not that dissimilar. Massively talented. Understandably seductive, those that are looking to bring in people that can help the team. And ultimately too talented to pass up on and too much of a problem to ever make good on their talents..

Is anybody really surprised? This is a young man who forced his way out of Cleveland because he didn't want to play with LeBron James anymore. Guys like Anthony Davis are begging to play with the Bron. James. Most of the league would beg to play with LeBron James Carrier being said No, No, no, no. I want to be the man. I mean, I wanna be the guy. I'm iron man. So he goes to Boston. It was like death by 1000 cuts. Look what happened in Boston after Kyrie. Irving, left man is Kemba Walker guys so much more fun to play with. He actually loves the game. It isn't a jerk. And now you have Kyrie going to Brooklyn. The moment he went there, would you not talk about? All right, Brooklyn? You know what you're getting. It's death by 1000 cuts and then you get the dagger in the back. We all have been there. There's certain days that you just don't want to go to work. You don't want to be bothered. We all have had that moment, You know, not today, but you can't do that. You carry Irving without any reason. If you say Hey, whatever went on. Yes, I doubt the capital if you do with a personal issue. If you want this responsibility, Carly Irving, you can't just say I just didn't want to play. But you don't tell your head coach. You don't tell your teammates. You don't tell anybody your organization. I'm never gonna fault humans for being human. Everybody has those moments where you just wanna be no matter what's going on inside your head or outside your head. But if you want to be this guy, Carvery Irving, if you want to tell us all that all all season, I've learned so much from the past to be a better person, not a better player, but a better person. This is not being a better person. But do you have your head coach? Not knowing why. He can't get in contact with you. And then we have to hear Per a source from somebody on Twitter that you just didn't want to play broadcast. Irving, you can't do that You can and that straight talk wireless. No contract. No compromise. President Trump's supporters staged protests at the U. S. Capitol turned violent America's capital. Disgusting. It's embarrassing. You imagine those were all black people storming.

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.
