How Docket is Revolutionizing Meetings Through a Product-Led Model
"Why did you start docket. Like what was the kind of story enter in the company and has your growth been surprisingly accelerated due to the year. We've had so yes to the second question. But i i have been in indianapolis. My entire career been technology mind tire career. I've been a junior developer at an early stage startup of ten people. I've been mid-level manager at a high growth company exact target and i've been a c. Level executive of publicly traded company in the one consistent thing through all those experiences no matter the company culture or the position i was in it felt like to high percentage of the meetings. I was in felt like a waste of time right. Just felt like they were often covering the same conversations the same topics over and over again and so As i started looking around for what. I really wanted to do from a career perspective. I really wanted to build a company. I've built lots of products built. Let's teams And i really wanted to focus all my energy investment into starting something from the ground up and this just seemed like with the technology we have in place today in with these before. Covid the slow move to video conferencing and this was a prime time to really bring the technology to the forefront in a collaborative way and really make this problem. Go away for for the average user so we started that and we saw immediately you meetings or something that people have an almost visceral reaction to when you talk about them and so it's a universal problem and we saw that immediately when we put your just simple website a little bit of of social of campaigns to drive awareness and it was immediate people were attracted to the solution started signing up starting using it and then when the pandemic hit obviously you had this huge focus on the need to find these collaboration tools. These tools now suddenly every conversation. You're having is a meeting right to make sure that you're being as productive inefficient as you can. Because it's very obvious on on a remote setting if you're wasting people's time and much more so than in local setting in fact so we've seen that huge ramp up and that lift and we early on identified zoom as a strategic partner for us. We wanted to make sure that we were in lockstep with what their road roadmap wasn't what they were doing. And that's paid huge dividends for us. Yeah i really wanted to get into. Because i think at marketplace is going to spawn simply the successful companies coming back to a couple of things on docket. You mentioned. I think you had fifteen thousand users and you mentioned kind of product lead so looked of dive into how you got your first kind of thighs and customers and then just get into how you the founder strategically thought about your go to market from the outset in how you thought about product lead so i kind of dive into customers or users High did you get from zero to like five customers or your fifteen thousand users in such a short amount of time for productivity growth company the user acquisition just has to be incredibly cost efficient right so we started out even before we had a website we started generating content that we would host on the website around just meeting management topics that focused around have productive meetings different types of meetings. That type of thing so seo is our kind of long term play. They're just generate content generate Organic users to the site and that's been working very well for us another aspect of what. We're we do. Obviously is meetings are naturally collaborative in nature so if one person finds dockets signs up starts using it for their team meetings. The other people in the meeting notice that the meetings of ran much better. There are artifacts out of docket agendas. Recaps that are branded docket. That are sent to people and they naturally click start signing up and start using it themselves so we have a very high percentage of of users that come through that viral aspect of the product Outside of that we did start playing with social ads in social campaigns. Just to see if we could drive interest and that was immediate it was. It's very easy to track people to this solution. Because the problem is almost universal. I think it was one of the finest bloom talked about the fact that they would if they had to create another company they would never create a company that didn't have inherent virality the the product like. They've they've learned the lesson that if the product itself is inherently viral things become a lot easier thing what. What's actually hard is not growth. It's monetization into a couple of things that that i was reading. Great tweet from david stocks just by sas companies and that also companies should try to think about teams and versus users. And this is like a good Thought exercise here and just hearing how you think about it because meetings could be a individual user tool and you could upgrade based on number of meetings. I actually don't know what your price is finite or you could try go for like large teams in large companies. How do you think about that as a user team till we Initially focused on the end. User your individual pain and our roadmap in our overall growth strategy is moved from individual team to business enterprise right. I mean just have have the natural growth that you're going to see from adoption of of the product itself lead into the roadmap and support large larger organizations. And so with that the way we've built docket as there's limitation on the number of meeting participants there's no limitation on the number meaning. You can have in the free version. It's use it as you can as best as you can to get more and more people onto the application and then we have a features in the first paid tier which is really for the small teams to help drive that conversion into that paid tear. You get more value out of it as you begin. Use it in team aspect you get some more consistency around the usage of the product and then the outcomes of your meetings are more productive overall Drives natural adoption. What are the interesting things that i love to get your thoughts nece. 'cause you're innocent under space I'm sure always trying to figure out your price packaging. So we had joe thomas. He is the co founder of loom. That was some time ago. Actually when they were earlier stage and they actually were going at a similar path. 'cause we were early. Adopters dot used loom at spread within a company. And it was they were basically trying to get as many individual used products as possible many users and they were then trying to upgrade your team based features recently at they switched the price and to monetize of the core value which is just anyone who's creating a video you can get five minutes or you have to upgrade to get any amount of minutes and so it seems like you're kind of going on the path. They initially went down. Which is like the is the core value for me actually immediate and then you wanna try to price team based kind of features and did you ever think about what kind of business it would be. Just kinda monetize the core value which is the need for the user. Absolutely it is one of those that we're still very early stage and we plan to rate quite a bit on pricing and packaging to learn. Because you you have hypothesis is you start out. But you really don't know We're seeing Good conversion rates On the paid tier as is but there is a large opportunity to to experiment with that especially as we move especially from a small teams into the large organizations where we now have organizations that have hundred seats four hundred seats. That type of thing is what's the value to the organization as a whole it had to be priced to make sure you're giving the premium

"Titan Games on NBC by Dwayne Johnson Mondays at eight eastern on NBC our Buddy Joe Thomas Joseph. Doing fantastic. Let's talk with you this right back at Joe. You know we were just talking I was just reminiscing. actually dropped a rare s Baum for me on this program. This morning about all the crazy stuff that happened in the first quarter of that game in week sixty feels like nineteen years ago, based on everything that's happened between then and now but that Saturday game we call between the the The Bucks and And Texans and how amazing it was that we were in that. You know pre game meeting. has just come off back to back. What almost five hundred yard games in a row? Right like four hundred fifty and he was bouncing off the walls, and talking about how all of his receivers were people that you didn't know anymore. He didn't know because both Evans and And Godwin were were hurt so and now Winston's a saint man I mean it's amazing. How quickly things happen like that right? I mean it's almost a little bit of a reflection on of where we are as a country right now you four months ago, you never would have expected to be where we are and kind of like in that game Now Tom Brady's Tampa Bay buccaneers game. It's Winston with the same. You go into that game knowing what it's GonNa be, and we just kept looking at each other in the booth going. Is this really happening? Pinch me moment in granted. It was my first time ever calling a game, but I kept thinking to myself this. Skip all these games. Go Right. They're not always this insane we're. They were insane like that. First quarter was insane, and it's crazy that that winstons last pass as a buck was a pick six that ended the game. If you remember against Atlanta that overtime pick six that he threw. And Brady's last was a pick six ending in a playoff game, and now they've Kinda swamped. It's. So, how do you think Brady and everybody else is going to do in Tampa because it sure looks like this season's going to go. Joe? I think that three's going to have tremendous season I? Mean that's where all signs are pointing like we talked about. They've got tremendous weapons on offense. Something that Brady probably hasn't had since they had that Greece season where they only had the one loss super bowl And reunited with Gronk and the only thing that could hold back and offense like that is if you had maybe some question marks about the coaching staff or the scheme, but they don't have that with Bruce. Arians, I mean you're talking about one of the great coaches in the NFL one of the great offensive minds and a defense. That's really underrated when you look at their defense, the really the thing that hurt them from a statistical standpoint was. They're scoring defense because their quarterback was turning the ball. Ball over at a monumental pace, and so I think we all can expect Brady's dot, going to be fumbling and throwing picks at the rate that James was, and so that's just by that nature going to help that that defense and their statistics ranking, and they can get after the quarterback. They got a good defense, so I think there is nothing that's GonNa. Hold the buccaneers back year. It's interesting to Joe and we had Bruce Arians in that pre game meeting as well the day before. And other them having you could see he was. He was a little bit chipper to saying. Don't shake hands with James Nobody. Shake hands with them because you know throwing. Throwing foam was was broken. You know and. And and he was. He was kind of having fun with it, but then we asked him as James. It's GonNa, stick around here and he goes I. Think so, you know and. said. We need to see how these next two games go. And we find out subsequently than him in the rest of the the box already looking over the steering wheel at who might be free, and apparently they were already thinking about Tom Brady at that very time. who wouldn't you love to see that thirty for thirty right now and just see you know what was going on with the Back Alley Communications and the wink nods and kind of kicking the tires on stuff, because you have to think that they were planning for potentially not resigning James Obviously because they didn't resign him and you know. It's just so many things that I'm sure will come out ten fifteen years from now just as far as the the speculation and the chatter and the conversations that the front office had about who they think they can get and realistically that first time I would have loved to have been a fly in the room the first time when they thought and they talked openly about. Hey, we really think we can get Tom Brady. Brady to be a Tampa Bay buccaneer, and the excitement, the enthusiasm that had to be just bouncing off the wall in that meeting room when they look at the roster, and they say this is the one guy that we get, and now we are firmly a team that can win the Super Bowl right now. Bronx in the mix there with OJ. How'RE YOU WANNA? Talk about a two tight end set i. mean that is particularly. Dynamic and then you know when they when they draft. They did have an opportunity to say you know to heck with it. Let's go get another one of these top notch wide receiver. Stick him out there with Godwin and with Evans, and with everybody else in. Let's roll, but instead they traded up. To get tristen worse and they're going to kind of move him around the line. Would you think of that? How you think, he will fit there Joe Thomas Well I. think that's a really good move. Obviously, there good looking themselves in the mirror and realize it. Yes, Tom! Brady is still a great quarterback, but Tom Brady is not Lamar. Jackson and we need to do what we can to keep him upright I, think they?.

Joe? Joe Thomas is done squeamish, you're making a whimper like a scared child because of your eating habits. What is Joe Joe you find it blasphemous that he doesn't break apart a kit Kat bar, correct? Yeah. That's why they make the ridge right down the middle. So you break them apart. And then you take nice bites whatever size one, he's probably the same guy that eats a whole string cheese. You know, three bites at a time. That makes no sense. You gotta pull them apart. No, no.

"Tomahawk podcast is where you check out some of the work that he's doing it's fun. He's fun. Joe Thomas, our friend used to be a very big giant person. And now he's lost a lot of weight, and he's all shredded and stuff, and he looks like the rest of the mortal. So I've got some important debates. I need you to settle around here. First of all Joe. And thank you for joining us. If you're on the flight, and you're not in first class and the basket of chips comes around what is the proper number of bags to grab from the flight attendant coming down with the tray of chips. That's a great question. I would say one to two anything more than that. And you're just gonna look gluttonous and people are going to give you a lot of stairs cause just rude. I mean, how long does the flight attendant have to stand there while you just sip through all the different options, and then pull three or four bags from it? That's that's just out of control. Right. You don't really sift. Yeah. You take yours and then they turn their head to the other aisle. And then you sneak one out the back door, and then you lie about your kids being asleep. A couple of rows back and then boom, you got four snacks. So if Joe Thomas had to have a chocolate chip cookie would he prefer it be hard or soft? Does anybody prefer heart chocolate? You do make any sense. Dan, does I do? Yes. You could say like you like changing it up and every now, and then you like a heart cookie because dunks swell in a milk. But if you had one cookie for for the rest of your life. Everybody would choose soft. Now, I'm taking hard hardships. He doesn't believe his tastes are unusual. Enter tell him he does not want butter on his popcorn and all of his favorite snack. Right. Here we go. I'm sorry. Joe take that one with STAN Van Gundy before we get to all the other. If you don't put butter on your popcorn. What do you put on your popcorn? You just so how will your feet at plane? Yeah. Just to put salt. Yeah. But, but I it still doesn't make sense because the only thing that has to be on there. And then saw this nice to add. But anyways, I guess you have different tastes than most of the world. He's a genuinely baffled. Joe thomas? I mean, this guy Terrell. Suggs couldn't confused him standing these snacking habits do confuse him top four snacks of all time. According to former fat person, Joe Thomas snacks, not chips snacks. I would say skittles on starburst combos like the pizzaria combos tremendous, and I'm like a movie movie theater popcorn phenomenal. But I mean starburst though, Chris I'm with you. Starbucks for sale. Okay. Combos way overrated. Well, I thought the lemon starburst dad to you. Joe? What do you do there? Yeah. The perfect bag of starburst is just the red and pink don't even know what they call them. But the lemons are pretty much worthless. And really just you're looking for the pink and the reds or a nice change up two to one ratio. Yeah. Oh my God. Joe, you know, that they sell just read starburst now, it's a pack. It's called just the reds. It is so good like a tropical punch. They have a bunch of different ones in there and just the pinks, but you'll never find just the ellos Hanks overrated. Starbucks hanks. The pink cherry mix is fantastic. I mean, how much joy can one have put it on the poll. Guillermo, please at lebatardshow the yellow starburst. You've just throw them off to the side on it just the place filler. That's what those are plenty of crunch till you like bunch of crunch. What the heck is that? Oh, I've never heard of that. You've never heard of Essy's plunge. She would love this. Because he told me he loves Nestle crunch bar. What it is it's on tonight size bunch of crunch. It's a Nestle crunch bar, but in little bite size portions, and it's just little little Nestle crunch. Not just by Nestle's. All no. Bite-size or like little asteroids that fit in your mouth and they explode asteroids perfect. If I have a bar. I get to decide what bite sizes..
Arizona teacher strike: Union boss warns walkout could be 'long haul'
"So if you remember how it went. Read for read said, we wanna raise the governor said, you know, what you're right. So he went to the legislature, president of the Senate speaker house and said can we get this done? And they said, you know, what we can get it done. We're gonna get them the twenty percent they've asked for over three years. We're going to do it. So the governor came back a couple of days later and said you're going to get the raise. Well, Joe Thomas who had taken over the movement by then who is the head of the unions in Arizona week as they are. And Noah carve, Ellis, the self socialist and guiding Derrick Harris was no longer here. Rebecca Garelli on these red. Fred people said, we don't believe you, Mr. governor, Mr. MRs legislators, we don't believe you. So we're going to walk out of school anyway, and they did seventy thousand people strong. And a lot of you don't know this, and I can't drive this home enough. The legislature worked on a budget that over a three year period gives teachers at twenty percent raise half of it in year one. And they were working on passing this budget until the wee hours of the morning. Do you know that leadership of red? Fred Joe Thomas, Noah, Carvalhas, Derrick Harris, all of them with their friends and in the democratic caucus in both the house and the Senate tried to kill that budget. Do you know that they want a governor Ducey gone so badly that they tried to kill the twenty percent raises for the teachers? So they could say it never happened. Like, they said it wasn't going to. And I will I will respectfully cast out the invitation one more time Joe Thomas. Derrick Harris has gone Joe Thomas miss corral. Noah Corvallis, any of the leaders of Red Front, even the new one J Budo any of you out there if I'm lying about this. Please call me out send me an Email. I will read your E mail verbatim on the air. You tried to kill the budget. You tried to stop the raises from going through to the wee hours of the morning. And when the Republicans passed it anyway, Joe Thomas ran to a podium and congratulated the teachers in attendance saying that it wasn't the dirtbag legislature or the dirtbag governor that got it done. It was the teachers in attendance that got this done. Did he tell those teachers in attendance that he was working behind the scenes to try to kill the budget? Did they do that? They didn't they didn't. Well, one of their five demands was no new tax cuts. Now, why in the world at teacher organization as long as they're getting the increases they asked for give a damn about tax cuts shows, you why this political I'm bringing all of this up because tomorrow is the day. Day. Tomorrow is debate in the legislature on a couple of tax cut measures. And they have been red. Fred has been imploring teachers to leave school. Take the day off sign up to speak in the legislative sessions in the committees. So that their two minutes can be heard and they can show their protest. Now, how many teachers are going to do this? I don't know. But if I were you, and I had a student or a grand son or daughter in the valley schools. I would be asking the administration my kid's classrooms going to double in size because teachers are taking the day off. Are you calling in a a more than usual amount of substitute teachers because teachers are taking the day off? If they can question you if they can come after you and ask you why you're taking your child out of school to excuse an absence. You certainly can do it for a teacher. Why are you taking the day off? Well, that's your business. Well, I tried saying that about my students when I was taking my student out of school. And I said, it's none of your business. Why I'm taking my kid out? And you made me explainer was an unexcused absence. I'm not trying to set up a war between teachers, and parents, I'm saying that the teachers and parents should be working together and red Fred claims, they're all about the students. Well, if you're walking out of school to go to a committee hearing in the legislature, you're ignoring the children. Now, your argument is going to be long term. It's better for the children. Well, that's what you have lobbyists for you pay. Joe you pay Joe a lot of money. He makes a lot of money to lobby on your behalf. Let him go to the legislature and state your case, you're gonna take schooltime off really. And how about May Day. Why don't some of you start asking your kids what they know about red? Fred what their teachers are saying about red. Fred, why don't you start asking in your school if the principal and the administration is going to give excused absences to teachers on may first or May Day to walk out in. Solidarity with teachers across the country. Maybe if I were you I'd try to find that out. Contractually? They're not allowed to do that. If they do they are in violation of the verbiage of their contract and could lose their jobs. I am in favour of teacher raises fair teacher compensation. I admire the job that teachers do across the board. Even if you're in support of red, Fred if you're a good teacher. Thank you for the great job you do. But if you're walking off the job for political reasons, you are ignoring the very students you claim to be fighting for and we haven't even gotten into and probably don't have time to get into the strong arm bully tactics behind the scenes because tomorrow is Wednesday. Tomorrow's the day that all teachers are supposed to wear red. And if you're one of the teachers that dare not wear red man, they write your name down. You're not a team player. You're not with us. You're against us. It's like being in high school all over again. It's the breakfast club all over again. That's what red Red's turned into. That's what they've become. I've dared them. I've challenged come on the show. Call me a liar proved me, I'm lying. I'll admit I'm wrong if I'm wrong. They haven't said word one they've gone underground. They have tried to. Hide from me. They've tried to hide from you. If they're so great if they're on the side of

"Can you throw the ball with the fish in the short part of the field and throw it over your head seventy yards in the air that's impossible to deal with from a defensive perspective now, especially when you can't hit anybody, they haven't even off the running game. They have Kareem hunt. You had learned league in rushing last year and they really have barely utilized that this year, but they can go to that if they want to mix it up. Now you have the Rams in the NFC and the chiefs in the AFC whose offense is right now. Look on stoppable. I love watching the Rams I played for Kyle Shanahan when he was in Cleveland and that offense with the Rams right now is almost a carbon copy of what we were doing. The way they run the outside zone. With Todd Gurley where he's just running around people. He's just so much faster. And then the way he plays in space running people over that just opens everything up with that play action passing. And Jared Goff is dropping dimes in the secondary right now. It's it's bad to be defense. If you're in the NFC right chiefs wound up playing the Rams and the Super Bowl, the world may stop rotating on its axis and speaking of the Browns. Let's get back to it here. We touched on it before, but there's your guy. Baker Mayfield the number one overall pick, and he came off the bench and a relief performance against the New York Jets on Thursday night. What do you think is a reasonable expectation for him going forward this year? Well, I think he's going to have is ups and downs. Any rookie quarterback is not going to just like the world on fire every single week. Like we saw last Thursday from Baker and he might have a little stretch where he teams kind of figuring out a little bit and then we get to find out, can he improve on his weaknesses because they're going to be attacking his weaknesses. Once they get a scouting report on him and what he doesn't do well, and then we get to find out, is he going to be great Kenny improve on the things. He doesn't do very well to start attacking those things, whether it's the underneath stuff, whether it's deep, whatever. That book looks like we got all these rookies that are go down starting here now. Right? I mean for the five of them are going to be starting at this point, has I know it's a small sample size, but are you the most impressed with Mayfield? Does that before in that small sample size? Yeah. I mean, he's kinda showed you everything that would indicate that he was worthy of being picked number one. Overall, you know what I'm with Joe there are, he's gonna hit a stretch. He's just is there's going to be some defense where the coordinator quite honestly is dialed in on them and knows exactly what he doesn't like to do, and he's going to make him try and do it. But here's the thing I used to talk about this a lot in front office. He's down the line going to give them chances to win football games because he just has a sixth sense that says, I'm going to do something here. That's maybe another quarterback. This wouldn't do maybe tyrod Taylor just wouldn't do. He wouldn't have the same kind of competence to pull it off. Like Baker does in down the line that's gonna pay off for them in terms of wins, and it's gonna make other guys go. We've got somebody different here like this offense, lineman, you're going look. I just know. I just need the whole my block here because bakers, sometimes this comes down to, he's just going to do something. And it's going to be electric, and they're going to be people like freaking out about it. Like you were on the side of the. They put a lot of interesting pieces around right first time in quite some time, Joe Thomas, by the way here on behalf.

"Famer. Joe Thomas running the hurry up, Joe, I'm dying to hear your perspective on the way they're calling roughing, the passer this season. This obviously has been a huge topic of conversation. What do you think? Well, it's alarming because what they're calling now is so far from what everybody can recognize football that we as football fans are going to be turning the game off. And that's what I'm worried about because we don't recognize what is being called as a penalty right now, is it wrong the way they're handling? Do you disagree with it? I disagree with it. I think they need to go back to the way they'd been calling in the past. I think one incident with with Aaron Rodgers, and now we're going to change how we play football as far as it relates a quarterbacks. I think that's the wrong approach. This is about dollars greedy. It's strictly about dollars. They don't want high profile franchise quarterbacks on the sideline and they were going to do whatever it takes to make sure that those guys stay off of I are. They stay in the game because they think fans wanna, watch quarterbacks plate. It's that simple. Richard Sherman, put it best. They don't care about the rest of the same way. They care about quarterbacks. And why is that? Because. When people tune in? They recognize Aaron Rodgers. They recognize Tom Brady, they recognize Patrick Mahomes at the put it in there. They recognize those guys. So that's who they want to keep on the field at all costs. And it's not just that the game is just better when those guys are playing. All I am is a fan. You guys were out there on the field and making these decisions and you were in front office. I'm just watching these games. Games are on watchable. When the quarterback play sufferers, they are far less entertaining on some level. They're doing it for the band. You're right in some respects. But at the same time which are doing is you're putting other players in an impossible by I get making it impossible for you to play deep as you just are. We said that the offensive would explode this year. And if you look at this, the ticks. Hembo put together here. It's happening, and that's exactly what defenses didn't want to have to deal with. Well, no offense exploded quite like the Kansas City offense. So far, Patrick Mahomes system, thirteen touchdowns in three games. It looks like they can score from basically anywhere on the field. Joe, you played in the league for about seventy two years. This, the most explosive offense that you can remember. You know, I remember the greatest show on turf Rams were we're up there. I don't know if they're quite on that level yet, but it's pretty amazing the number of weapons that they have in the way that they can run some of these RPO's in these jet sweeps. And really they can attack you on the edges. They can attack you down the field.

"No, you wouldn't. That's not true. Harry earned. It isn't an iconic that he's not p issue, but I'm saying to you, Jalen is this if the Boston Celtics were what they are now and there was no Brana the Eastern Conference and kyri decides to join couldn't be what they are now without curry. I'm answering made it into the conference on. You're changing the narrative. I'm saying if the Boston Celtics world loaded or ready and there was no foreseeable competition that we viewed and he joined that team, we would frown upon that. That's not what happened with Boston. To me, go stay worse. Then show me that they were invincible last year. I'm the first year first year Kevin Durant. I'm up nursing. The first year person feels like if if Chris Paul had not gotten injured Houston without he's not what we're talking about the year before we're Kevin Durant. I got in, I didn't like Katie. No, no, not moving it. I didn't like Katie losing to the warriors and joining new. But what I'm trying to say is that's an isolated incident in NBA history. Nobody's right now upset. Thinking about this LeBron left Cleveland in ain't getting nothing in return him, but nobody's upset about that subject. Brian joins the Las Vegas, nobody's upset about the subject subject. They don't have other offer squad, so you just don't change. So you act, you're going to act like two years ago when Kevin Durant went to Golden State, you had absolutely no issue with the fact that it was the balance of power has so drastically shifted that that had ruined that season. Is that what you're saying? The season was not ruled public because here's, here's c. the media can't have it both Minnesota. That would that media you, you're looking at planet, who would you play for you play for? Took us up member this now don't say you. I'm not one of the purse. I'm not one of the people that I'm about to speak of, but you're interrupting me because you don't know what I'm about to say. What I'm about to say is you're one of the media members that once players to get the chip before they get validated. Right? So how can I shut the media? I'm going to go get the chip, so that's what players are now doing. And we're going to look up at like ten years and all of the top players actually have rings. How about that time out Tom out, you partially right. I definitely want the chip. I don't want you going broke. I don't want you failing to get your paper all down and you know be about that. But the flip side is I have a problem when I see cats who have never won anything being celebrated as if they've won something. So I think that there is there are less. Levels to this career Dole's champions and those who are not. I don't see anybody who I to get back to the initial point. Let me get back to this place. Do nobody was mad at Chris Paul for joining James heart, the Houston Rockets because Golden State was loaded, but my playing we needed competition. This is Kevin Durant conversation. This is this is Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors conversation. It is necessarily a super teams novelization cannot team. I would imagine. All star. The only thing funnier than or more entertaining than this conversation is listening to the people in my ear, yelling at me, greenie, try and get in there if you can and move it along. Because Joe Thomas has made his way into the studio and we have him here and we have to welcome them onto the show while I'm very much enjoying this, I have to send you to your neutral corners.
