Senior American officials said there was no plan to send military forces the U. S intelligence officers would assist the investigation. Adam Isaacson is from the Washington office on Latin America, a US based advocacy group. 80 really needs help in forming a legitimate government. And of course, the those who are claiming to be legitimate government. They barely have enough security forces to keep order right now in the country, So you know they've taken this rather Outrageously risky step of asking the United States to perform security duties for them, and I don't think the United States is at all interested in another occupation or troop presence in Haiti. I don't think the United States wants to put any of its own personnel in harm's way in Haiti.

Bowser's Fury Preview
"Mario three d world with the expansion. Our friend joe scribbles over in the uk was able to get some hands on with it ryan. I know you're a big fan of super. Mario three d world. What did you think of joe's preview. I didn't read it. Because i don't want to be spoiled because i'm very excited for this. No it's okay. We'll do it now. It's it's. I'm super excited for this. I'm not necessarily in media blackout. I've seen what i needed to see. I read a little bit about the length of this Sort of bonus campaign. I'm all in like. I don't need anymore to need anymore. Arm twisting this is basically a brand new three d. Mario mini game Or small smaller size game coming to switch very soon. And i can't wait i'll i will hundred percent the main campaign in this game again in multi-player I love game so much. And the boundaries. Fury stuff looks amazing. Didn't read the preview. So i don't want to be spoiled but now my friends could spoil me while i'm stuck here in this chair being forced to listen. I can tell you everything. That's an bits wide though. It's a jovan an awesome job if you listeners viewers if you haven't watched it watches His preview does a really nice job at breaking down the two parts of the game. You know he says it's basically two games in one you get. The classic slightly sped up right more more Side scrolling oriented games. Like mario odyssey three d. exploration game but like this kind of fast for player game and then this completely separate mode. He was only able to get limited time with you. Know a probably everybody's curious about houses fury but he said it's it's really interesting because it's it uses the three d world engine but then a kind of more world set up like odyssey so when you watch preview you can see. It sometimes doesn't quite look as good as odyssey but in general it still looks really impactful because it has all these cool weather effects and it's just really really need to see the styles of the two games mixed like that but the thing that i thought was really interesting is that he He confirmed that. The browser appearance is like the blood moon. Zelda in that it's like a world event that happens and when bowser is there he'll he'll attack you and his attacks can open areas or destroy blocks otherwise you wouldn't be able to get into so it's like it's a scary event but it's also welcome event and so the thing he wasn't able to do is to actually do the battle with presumably. That's what you build up to and that's how you end the level. It's really cool looking. There are so. I don't know how much you want to be. I think he said that you can get him to go away by picking up one of the collectibles called the cat shine and he said there were a lot of similarities and call backs to mario sunshine but no no flood or anything like that and there's an item you can pick up and then do gigantic tax battle with bowser area. Yes you collect. Shines basically like in sunshine which is a different from obviously three d world in the way it set up but yeah it is. It is very curious right like that. You can get a mini mario adventure in it like it almost makes it feel like maybe at one point and they were thinking about doing this. This cap thing as odyssey deal sea level or something like that. Yeah it's I can't wait to play. Unfortunately you know my number one player partner my daughter. We used to play this together. She now lives in japan but luckily the came has multiplayer. So that's right. I mean online online. It does have online from from what i saw. Sort of on social media It seems to work pretty well. I'm i'm i'm very into that concept. I think you're totally honest. Something it it does feel kinda curious that there's this brand new side mode because nintendo didn't need to do this you know like a lot of their Ports have from the you era have been a lot more straightforward. They've added some stuff here and there into like pick men and obviously we got an additional stuff in I guess what was it in. Mario kart today add battle mode eventually on. Yeah we got additions on the switch for sure. Yeah this this game is fantastic on its own and it doesn't feel short on content at all so i'm super happy. They decided to add even more. Like i said one hundred percent of the last one. I'll do it all over again. But i was not expecting anything new here to get. That is really cool. Bonus for fans. Like but i think you're right like the. I wonder when when and where the development of this mode was sort of adjacent to like. Was this an odyssey thing. Was this three d world. Dlc or additional stuff that they were planning until they saw you know the we you kind of tapered off in terms of sales but either way. I'm glad it's here now. It's neat yeah and you know just as a guiding

"Even you know when they'd go to michael at the five and then quite the four like that was really tough to guard and all of a sudden he had driving lanes and and that was something that going with zoo or tries at the five or or going with more traditional lineups like they didn't have that spacing and they didn't have those driving lanes and again this team if we're looking at you know one of their weaknesses like they don't have a lot of north south guys. It's a lot of east-west it s a lot of just kind of. I'm going to dance with you. And then try to create a shot on the perimeter. It's not a lot of guys who can get to the rim so they need spacing spacing is really important for this team especially with also just not having playmakers guys really good passers like the spacing more important for their driving lanes so i do think tie embracing some of that. Surge is gonna help without of course as a three point shooter. But i'm going with smaller. Lineups is something. I'm really intrigued by. And i think could unlock some different things for this team Who's center evita's you bots As as hollinger your podcast partner and and my colleague has written now multiple times you all in one metrics painted zoo as a top fifteen top twenty center this season and i know the casual fan listening. Might not the think of him that way but I if you look at a lot of his his key metrics he's on par with guys like you know rule bear like like he he andrew and i'm not i'm not saying he. He is ready to go bear or is ever going to be on that level but his you know objectively a very good screener. He's a good finisher at the rim. He's a good rim-protector and he's a really good rebound her and i think those strengths and a guy who's only twenty three You know are are things you want to develop in continuing. I think you saw it. In the bubble a he played a lot better with was putting a double doubles and The second trez came back. You know doc started to go away from that So i think if. I'm the clippers and anti lou. I'm saying zoo. You're starting center of the future we still have. You locked up a few more years like here. Twenty four to twenty six minutes a night that you're getting every night i'm and let's see what you do with it You know i. I think if it was docs still coaching the team. Maybe he would have gone to surge because you you probably could make that argument like search surges better. You know i. I probably i think they're closing on our But i do think Zoo is going to be the center to sar games. And maybe even close depending on the matchups. Yeah i. I think that that makes sense. You know it bucket me with his defensive versatility and shooting ios. Maybe just a little bit better of a fit. But i think there are. Some matchups were zoo. Bots would make sense. I'm not sure how great a post defender. Sergio baca is so going against a d. Or nicole yokich. That might be more of a match up for zoo. bats Although i mean it just it's tough for like these young centers of times. You know part of why he doc stop playing him was he just had a few times where he would just like fumble away passes under the rim or like just couldn't finish. Which is atypical usually finishes pretty well. But he struggled to finish at times and that denver series were getting stripped down low and then it seemed like everyone lost competent immediately. And you know they never went back to him and then nick. How's he fit into this group. So i think he's the. He's the rodney. Mcgruder upgrade and i think expectations need to be tempered with him. If you look at how bad he was last season. He's lost some weight as. Yeah so i i think he looked at last year. I thought he. I think he's in better shape and to me. He's a guy who can raise this team ceiling Because again i think you look at the top eight You know which would be the starters plus a bacha luke To me that is better than than last. Season's top eight. But you know. I think one through eleven or one through twelve. This team probably is an as deep as as last season in my opinion But the guy. I think that changes that is nicolas batum and again. You're not expecting portland. You know the the portland version of him or even like charlotte but if you look at like twenty seven eighteen and twenty eighteen nineteen like if you could get that guy or even eighty percent of that guy. That's a decent nine ninth guy Someone who can play multiple positions. And i think with him where he's going to help as You know as offensively would just his playmaking in his ballhandling. And i went back in and watch a decent amount film and his offense of stuff in his defense of stuff and I think just him being another ball handler. Another guy out there so she with that second unit Or even playing alongside choir. Pg and being because this team again you're they don't have a traditional point guard. They don't have that floor general that that's going to micromanage so you need ball handling and playmaking from other positions. That's where i think you know. Nick as a three or four Can provide some funky Kind of wrinkles to second units. And you know maybe a mid third quarter units like he. I think he he has you know he. He has stuff that this team needs. And i think defensively he's probably better defensively than offensively at this point a guy who could offend walter positions not good defending the pick and roll. And if you screen him he's gonna die and some of those screens but Is someone that with that length Can still bother guys on the wing a bit. So i think you know taking a gamble on him as a ninth guy like The i thought it was a smart move clearly was a move. They were waiting on. Because there's kind of this weird gap where there moves have been reported but they waited on them. You know once the free agency period officially started the waited for a few days and then they didn't make didn't fill in the back end of the roster in it you know. It seemed like there waiting for something and that clearly wasn't a tomb to you. Know that further gordon hayward situation to be resolved and then for to be a free agent so I think he he again. If you're expecting him to be a ninth guy in this team. That's like more realistic expectations. I don't expect them to be like a starter level or six-man level But i think if you just ask him to be a additional secondary playmaker and ball handler and a decent defender He can probably provide that yet. I think i don't know if he's going to work out. He may just be done but the theory of him as you mentioned is one that makes a lot of sense. Because that's a a big weakness to this team. Still to me is just their overall passing unselfishness those quick ping ping passes around the perimeter. Any at least has some size. Do he's not. He doesn't have a target on his back. Defensively out now that he's going to be good but at least he's not someone like other teams or licking their chops like he at least looks the part defensively which is kind of. That's kind of what. What it as the ease of dimes as obvious like this guy's got pretty good size. He's got some like what just a here. Let's go out lou williams instead here Any of the gimme the to just like twenty second status report on some of the young guys who who are left over from last year. There's kyw bowmen. there's a man. They drafted daniela. Toru or thirty. Three and fiasco coming gay a of those guys. Do you see.

"How things played out with hayward the fact that they did not want to do a sign and trade with indiana. Now they end up with this. Twenty seven million dollar trade exception. That how you would have played things if you were them And it was out there. Sign and trade is best. You're able to figure out that they didn't want to do with indiana. Yeah i mean. I was on board with turner and i. I'm of the thought process. That eighteen million isn't twenty seven million. So it's something you can live with for overprice center. And i've just i've is a believer that you put turner in an an more spread offense with a high frequency pick and roll point guard. That can really turn into a positive role man or a pop man that he'll be a lot more effective and then also with the celtics defensive scheme the way that they defend pick and roll the fact that they have so many great wing defenders that big tend to look great and they're defensive scheme as long as had actually the scheme. I just figure that turner would really take a leap in boston. And so i would have made the move forum. But i'm gonna trust the celtics. The they know better than i do on their scout of turner and it's very clear that they've just don't feel that way about turner and so they're willing to surrender. Probably a lot more draft capital to try to work the trade market over the next year or so. And hey at least you know. They've always. They've always valued flexibility more than just about any gm in the league. They been really willing to acquire draft picks instead of talent Prioritizing their draft picks instead of trading it for talent stuff like that so it really wasn't a surprise that they would rather get the flexibility of the t. p. even if that's going to cost them more draft picks down the road or more young players down the road to really make the use of it then turner and mcdermott that probably are gonna just appreciate an asset value. Even more as you pick them up. So i understand it from that perspective but the whole thing with age this whole time has been the. He's amazing at setting the table. But you gotta deliver a delicious meal at some point and they they keep missing on all. These windows potentially win the championship and presumably with tatum and brown. That that window is going to stay open for a while. But if you lose this opportunity you had where you had so much overwhelming talent and because of a lot of poor luck because of a few other factors on top of that didn't work out. The worry is that you're just never going to be able to get to that level of talent that's sufficient to actually win the title. Yeah i think that's a good point and they in some ways you could say well they were right there last year and they they outscored miami in that series and they should beat miami. I picked them to do so but in another way. I think they really lucked out that. They didn't have to go against milwaukee. And i think they would have been really drawing dead against milwaukee due to their inability to match up with gluco and we got asked us. Yeah and so in some ways. Maybe this team looks better than they did it than they should have a year ago even though obviously they had a really wonderful regular season and now of course walker is out and maybe he won't be back at the level that everyone hoped he would view and they signed him and gordon hayward is the other thing about using the twenty seven million dollar trade exception is they had this issue coming up a being in the tax but even now as you look at where they are to start next season the whole idea of the trade exception is you take on a bunch of salary and you. Don't give anything back well. They're already right out the tax for next season so they can't take on twenty seven million dollars for next year like they're not gonna be twenty million dollars into the tax next year like. That's just not something that i mean. You correct me if i'm wrong here. But that's not something. I've got the impression that this ownership group is willing to do. And so that and even if they took on someone for this year then they'd be crazy into the tax as well so this idea that like. Oh yeah they'll just take on a some guy at twenty seven million dollars and not have to give anything back. That's that seems kind of unrealistic. And they still don't really have disposable salary either. I mean. they've got their top four guys. You're not gonna wanna give up marcus smart in some trae. Dyke's still really important. They need some depth. Then everyone below there as either tristan thompson. Making nine million. Maybe he's in a deal like that And that's how they save a little bit of money and then you've got guys on rookie scale contract so i'm not sure that anyone who's like. Oh let's see whether bradley beal already go. Bayer fits into this trade exception. You know i mean maybe but they still are going to have to send something back at a minimum. That's a significant salary. Pull off a deal of that. Ilk i mean they don't have the talent to acquire bradley beal. There's no point there's really no point of trading jalen brown for bradley beal. You're not you're not dramatically increasing your ceiling by doing that. Is you want to pair those three guys together. And i assume they're not gonna wanna get kemba walker unless they think for some reason kemba walker and russell. Westbrook are to be perfect together in washington. But so you're right boston unless one of these guys like romeo lengthy Rob actually does not fit into the trade exception by the way those more. I think he's like you know a couple thousand a couple hundred thousand ahead of it anyway. Just those Those people who are going to nitpick on us here. But i had them at one hundred thousand which it's funny because one hundred thousand this kind of like a dollar in monopoly money in the nba. And it's just so strange that they couldn't they couldn't work it with gordon hayward just take like an extra two hundred k in the first year just to make this work for us. I thought that was really interesting that they for some reason did it. At least keep that option open for the sake of it. But there's there's too many other teams that can make great offers repeal or..
interview With Dennis Crowley Co-founder of Foursquare and Creator of Marsbot
"Okay. Dennis crowley welcome to the voice. Podcast thanks for the beer. Yeah it's really good to see you again so we were just talking before we got on the bike in the video here that we met very briefly. I think we talked for about ten minutes after voice. Camp by beta works. Which i believe was june of twenty seventeen hundred times ago. Who has a lot of things happened since then and that was fun. I mean yeah. Companies like jovan came out of that. So there's a lot of listeners to my podcast very familiar with jovo and egg voice. I think was there as They're doing really well in the in the custom assistant space rag culture so that was a really Really good event. Very early on is reputed. We're starting to build custom assistance. And you're on stage. I don't remember exactly what your Your comments and prognostications were. But i'm sure they came true. I think we were talking about Voice skills at the time. I think i let alexa was opened to you. Know building your own voice skills. And i think we were. We force for likes learning with like. Should we make something there or not. Yeah and you'd never did correct. We did we made something for actually made something for google. Whatever google on google home google. Now whatever it's called sugarless assistant yet but we we. We launched them but we never really promoted it. I don't think. I even know it still works to be honest. We saw very williams at with that stuff as it's tough because you really have to say a mouthful just to get the thing to work like. Hey google assistant foursquare this. That's just not what normal people do. You know. That's really interesting So actually why don't we. I think most of the people who are listening are probably familiar with foursquare. But why don't we talk a little bit about your journey with foursquare what that does how that lets you up to the assistant. We'll talk about that. And then obviously. We want to spend a lot of time on mars. Because i think that's a really interesting solution. But for the people who aren't up to speed on the foursquare journey you know what you're what you're quick summary about how you got to where you are because you know a tremendously important company in many ways At least from my perspective And you know really at the at the onset of the bubble revolution in particular. And now we're in voice and you're doing something else in the space so i think it's really interesting. How you're jumping these technology curves. Yeah i mean we've been doing foursquare for for twelve years now and so forth. What has been a lot of different things in those twelve years kind of typical startup journey of trying a little bit of everything until you really figure it out but started as a consumer app Back in two thousand nine audience maybe fifty sixty million users which still wasn't enough In terms of you know running a at canal a product radio ads in the product. And so that's really when we started to understand that the destiny of the company was becoming more of an enterprise providing tools and technology to develop partners providing data a building advertising marketing solutions in robust analytics around types of people have been to what types of places You know really a lot of the things that he saw the consumer equitable to spin those into very valuable Tools and technologies for for others to use and company has has been doing really well since we've really figured out how that business works really changed the company to better serve those opportunities. Yes it was really a social connectivity app. I would say in the beginning. And it's moved into that data location business. Yeah you're you're you're working with enterprises. I will say that i still use the foursquare out. Yes why there's tons of people still use the apps and i think that consumer dna still runs very strongly. The company which i think gives us A unique perspective. When we're building had of these enterprise tools like normally think of enterprise stuff is like oh it's just software for companies but like we approach it as As as you would if you were building it for for end users and i think that allows us to be more thoughtful like more clever with it more playful with it sometimes And you know he was still a team here that works on the consumer apps. Like my my job now is run the the rnd team here which just makes weird stuff with the tools and technology in the most of that we are stuff is meant to be used by end users. Just people that are walking around was was phones or airpods. Whatever

"How did that development come about over the course of that over the course of the previous summer? Yeah. I mean, I knew it was something that I was going to have to implement in my game. Just giving you know, the our roster, you know early on I play with great guards Jaylen Fisher Alex Robinson guys who really good at, you know, getting in the land and creating opportunities for our team and you know, what those guys being gone. I knew that some of the responsibility was going to be given to me and you know it it was a lot of film. I mean, I worked on a ball skills and things like that, but majority of it was filmed, you know, so when I get in the pick-and-roll or whatever situation maybe I I know where the defense is rotating from and and wage Type of you know where everybody's going to be at on the the defensive side of the ball and that kind of made things easier and slowed everything down for me. And once I I got that and everything slowed down for me the game became a lot easier while playing with the ball in my hands just so we kind of danced around in a couple of times now, but while the ball skills have improved and while you become a lot more comfortable, you know, attacking closed off and playing in pick-and-rolls the thing that's ultimately going to make your career is your jump shot. Right? Like I said a relation 43% of your three over the course of your collegiate career, but it is kind of an unconventional looking jump shots and compare in comparison to Other Guys across the NBA. So how did you kind of develop those mechanics over the course of your development? And that's that's the crazy thing. I was never really, you know, taught how to shoot, you know, and I got the TCU and and Ryan Miller it was the assistant that it brought me in and he never really marriage. Anything to me about my form just besides, you know, stop dipping ball little things here and there but he really just told me reps, you know, if want to become a great shooter. It's going to take a lot of time in the gym and Faithfully bought into that and I feel like that's where you know, my improvements came. But yeah, I was never taught I used to I'm not sure I used to like way worse. It still doesn't look great, but you're still way worse. It is funny because like, you know on some level some Scouts think differently about this right like yeah. Yeah something some guys are just like the results of a matter, right? Yeah. That's for sure 3% like on a high-volume. That's what matters. Yeah other Scouts are like well, how's it going to look when he moves back to like? Yeah, how much of that have you heard from scouts over the course of like last two years that you've entered the draft so I haven't heard too much. You know, I feel like it's been more like people look at me and they see my arms are short. So they don't know if I won't be able to get my shots off. Things like that and that's part of the reason why took the dip out of my shot and became a better shooter off the move and off the dribble just to kind of diversify myself a little bit, but I actually think my short off the reason why I can shoot the ball. So well it just because you know, I don't have all that extra Motion in my shot. It may look funkier may look whatever but you know, I don't have the extra Motion in my shot and I've tried so many times is the reason I became the shooter.

NBA draft someone that is I think if you'll kind of understand as we talk throughout this conversation just one of the one of the more fun players I've gotten a chance to talk to over the course of the last few years one of the off just a just a good human being that it's fun to talk about this stuff. So Desmond, how you doing, man? Doing great, man. Thank you for having me. I really appreciate it. So. I'm going to start this interview the way I do with every other NBA draft prospect that I have on the show. If you're to describe your game in your own words to NBA fans that are listening out there right now with how would you describe your game? I would say Rock Solid I would say that you know, that's a word that you can use. I'm I'm a smart player on both ends of the floor. I know what I'm I'm good at home. I know some of the things that I'm not so good at and you know, when you put me out on the floor with with multiple good players, you know, I feel like I kind of fit like a glove on both eggs. Barcelo I would say Rock Solid is the word to describe me. Yeah, for sure. I think that's a really great way to do it as well. Yeah averaged Seventeen point six rebounds Forest this year, but I would imagine that most people know you as kind of a three-point Gunner given the fact that you've hit 43% of nearly six hundred three point attempts over the course of your collegiate career..
"jovan" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"We were in Vegas for summer league and we were at the Westgate Sportsbook because I wanted to be watching Australian football and that deal goes down and they run out and get their laptops. They have to write obviously. I don't really have to write just cuz that's not like, you know, I can write in those circumstances. I don't necessarily have to write in those circumstances and I was watching Australian football. So I wanted to watch essendon and We were like getting ready to like run up to the sports book to see what they were going to put the Clippers at in terms of winning the title. We were basically just like Tom Brady like bang down the sports book like essentially doors. I guess they're not really doors, but just like begging to be able bet on the Clippers if it was anything over like three or four to one. I think it's settled in early at like 3 and 1/2 to 1 if I remember correctly. And unfortunately we couldn't do that Sports will close like 20 minutes before that trade went down but I think it speaks to the attitude that permeated the NBA about this Clippers team and I think it speaks to the attitude that permeated the Clippers themselves off about this scene because I think they saw themselves as the favorites even as the Lakers throughout the course of Season kind of surpassed them. and but I think the the kind of frustrating part if you're the Clippers or someone who did Believing that they were the number 2 offense they were the number five defense, you know that they did have the fourth best record in league. They you know were the two seat out west. You know, I think you're looking at the season. I mean maybe wage expected them to be the one seed or maybe you expected them to have a top-three defense, but for the most part like they hit the benchmarks that you kind of expected them to hit and did so wrong with Kawhi Leonard, you know, having the injury management they had unforeseen injuries of you know, Paul George had his shoulder surgeries then suffered a hamstring injury, you know, Midway Through The Years Landry shamet missed. I'm Beverly missed time. Jamychal green Mist. I'm like, they made the Marcus Morris trade. Like they had all these variables in in kind of various forms of adversity that they did not come with their talent and just kind of with their two-way ability and even till The Bitter End like again, they had a 3-1 lead, they weren't Prime position to win game five. They were in Prime position to one game six and they were actually in game seven really until the last eight or nine minutes. So I mean, it's just the manner in which they collapsed the devastating fashion of having the three one series lead and losing of having those second hot leads and losing it just really was like this team was almost waiting to unravel at the seams off and you know, the chemistry issues were always there and they might have been patched over at times but they were never fully resolved and you saw Lou PG and Kawhi all lunch and chemistry in their post-game press conferences, you know, the team talking about not having enough time together, you know, whether that was practicing or or just the on-court reps with different guys in and out of the bubble bath even heard that the conditioning excuse that they had but it was just this was like the best and the worst of the Clippers you saw The potential with the three one series lead you saw the potential with big second-half leads and then you saw the demise with a you know, lackadaisical effort at times with an inability inability to execute them basic things, like pick-and-roll defense rotations running an offense..

"Yovan what's going on, man? How's it going? I'm running on four hours of sleep after maybe the the worst playoff collapse in NBA history. Yeah, I'm running on I got six at least last night, which was a good cuz I wrote that big like breakdown of the nuggets and how they just like destroy the Clippers pick-and-roll defense and I'm glad that I got the basics like I feel like that's what I needed but yours is a little bit more required a bit more tact than mine. Did I think is the way to put it so I understand you needing to take a couple more hours than I did. The Sara Lee a piece is great. By the way, thank you. Let's just I mean, where do you want to start with this? Obviously, like I said in the intro we're going to talk about the Clippers here. We're going to talk about how the Nuggets just essentially broke them over the course of three straight games birth. Stray awful comebacks. At least this one. I think only got out to 9 in game seven with the Clippers lead, right? Yeah only got out to 9 a.m. I believe that that was what about you know, two thirds saying that the the Clippers Clippers biggest leaders 12:00 on this game. So they actually blue they they blew a third consecutive double-digit great. Would you like to see? Yes, go ahead. Where do you want to start? I was going to say I had a line in my story that I think just kind of it's what I've been thinking about. What was that? Until The Bitter End this team teased us and you know on paper they were the you know, you had this greedy identity from off-season the Steep Supporting Cast this Championship coaching staff. You add Kawhi Leonard and Paul George 2 of at that time that you know top ten players in the league. You have Kauai coming off routers run you have PG coming off of top three finishes and MVP and defensive player of the year and rightfully. So this team was the championship favorite, you know in in Vegas with MBA pundits analytics across-the-board. Most people had them pegged as best team or at worst a top-three game. Yeah, and I'll give you a quick little anecdote on that. I think I've told this story took Robby kalland on the podcast before but the night that Kauai in Paul George ended up on the Clippers Robbie and a couple of friends Brad Roland Martin Rickman dead..

What else? Corona!
"Hey guys hey. This is quarantined. Special saw Corentin special party. He knows how many parts there will be a while they too will watch this. Show this to exactly just to see. This is just this season but the but no is coming off as much as I would say. Let's talk about. The rebels is reality and we have still colliding with this bad ass disease right now but it will pass. I just got a couple of calls just working from home and it's interesting because I talked to different people role globally so I get to talk to people from all different countries and so sometimes. I'm I'm just surprised sometimes about where people are at and this affects people differently like we all know but I just got off talking to a friend a colleague in Germany and man. Oh I was like we were meant to talk about something. We literally spent forty minutes just like having a session on just we can do it. You're okay how are you near Lezo? Stay strong friend you know. And it's like what if it is adjustment thing you say funny like sometimes you can from hiring more you think. Oh yeah cool. Welcome him APPEA- days but at least we know going back to work the next day or the next week that this feels a bit uncertain. Because it's like we would hold I four weeks and now it's more let me going to be twelve last. I think it's about adjustment of what I have to pick up my workplace. Actually because they are competing fixable. They know that people have children or other responsibilities. They know that this is a huge adjustment and people on some people aren't suited to working from home so they are retry it as much as possible to be flexible and because we are all the organization they have reverted funds to support people who live in college. Who are freelancers? Pay Their rent. Who you know what I mean so this to me. It feels like even this is really crap was going on. We tried to pull together to make people's experiences of this at least a bit better. Yeah that that makes me feel good. I think for me. It's just. It's kind of the ways that people things that people are afraid of that. I'm being very aware of and so for some people you know. They're afraid for their families. And so if you've got relatives in countries and so he's he's really touch me because you know he has a mom in Brazil and he's like you know the most the most hard done by people in those cultures in those countries. What what is it what? What about them when they can't get access to health care they can't give up a festive ones on the on the list when it comes to resources because they don't have the money and to book you talked about this last time the private health insurance and when it comes to work. I feel like the him. He's real kind of pain was coming from the uncertainty around work where the company's losing projects. I just talked to Marissa This afternoon as well and should she works for a Hedge Hedge Fund but I can investment bank That sponsors and she was talking to your best year mercer and she was just sharing how this company that specialize in Holidays High Holidays and they and they're like you know borrowed forty million to start their company or something crazy like that and they're projected earnings and revenue for this next month zero and so it's just alert these ways that people are just feeling fearful so job security is really a big one and he was just sharing their with great with you live in a country where yoga get unemployment. Belfair all you can kind of do this and that the government willing to do this but there are places where it's like often we ain't got nothing for you usual job. Good luck to you. So I was really found his pain so he's worried about his wishes USA heaviness to him about worried about so. I'm just trying to encourage him. And just you know just got my little car. Djing words of wisdom up there on a mile my back the back of me so when people see video just like you know just trying to put a few words out there and just keep encouraging. Yeah you know people that you've seen as really strong and you interact with them on a daily basis and they're like to see them so bun rable at this. Time is really humbling. I think it's humbling for them. People that I just was always like. Oh this is about us. But it's like they are afraid fearful and depressed and not necessary. Made the mostly weak enough. But you just see inside of you. I think this is the fact that this is also unprecedented. Like nobody knows how what when? And so you're right and then you start to realize the things that you rely on and I think that's what's really showing me when I'm not traffic on. Having compensate the panic the the most panic that the kind of conversations I'm having with people is all centered around yet security jobs e micro a lot of people who have very much safer kind of freelance space and very much kind of kind of doing what. I want to do creatively. All of a sudden they're like oh my gosh like really scary and I don't have security. How pay my rent and and and you know and people and I feel really privileged. Actually that I have a job that that is going to stand the test of time. Coding and it will still be there the end of this but even still like I ain't concerned because it gets the point where all of a sudden as well people are thinking. Okay what's the party's what are the core things that needs to focus on? What are the core moments core principles? There's a lot of the kind of added value rose in a business that was all of a sudden seem to feel like not like not important anymore. And so you can really get into like my my job boy. Am I gonNa Again? Same same shots. What was in? I'm big on my company like they've actually been so resilient and how they responded. I think they've been very good at kind of just know that you know we get. This is the day by day thing. This is not a this is what's happening. This week is literally day by day. They're kind of really opened the communication it has to be. I think you know. If I'm honest view might be disappointment. Has Been actually from the government. Not so much from workplaces. I think our work's been great. I think the government being so unsure and so I said the government Boris Johnson. Just not being clear in what he says like a delivery guys. I think you have. The trump does every day like a certain time he has his compasses which again are a shambles. I'm not even GONNA get too much into trying to bring too much negatively into this moment because I think everyone is in that space of worries what will stay there. But I do think that they they could do better with just reassuring people because I think that where there is so much uncertainty. You really do need leadership to lead. And they're just no. I'm just under sweeney disappointed so actually I found solace in looking at my community to lead an. I'm seeing great leaders papa elsewhere in terms of inspectors that. I wouldn't necessarily be looking for them. I E actually checking them of friends who are like how mental health care in this time. What are you doing to kind of? Stay Sane in these moments so small things that check in. Jovan everybody even APP site house. He couldn't if you guys have seen the housefly which is really cool. The instagram live moments. All suffer usually. I would not be my back like it's not my thing but it's actually been somewhere. I found a lot of kind of support salacious when people come and mega positively and like this fun through this also sharing some facts which is held. 'cause I'm really checking on friends and people. I know that else regardless of age that just because it can be quite isolating of course so thankful that MOMS in America view one and your family but yeah so a lot of my friends single or they or they could be partners but then if by themselves and yeah just checking it on them because people are. Social Butterfly is will they? You know they better if you're an extrovert shiver and you get your energy from people. That's really

N.F.L. Declines to Suspend Tyreek Hill After Domestic Violence Investigation
"The Kansas City chiefs have dealt with domestic violence with a few different players. But without a doubt right now the most prominent is star wide receiver tyreek Hill. I can you tell me about tyreek hill as a player and what he brings to the chiefs. Offense tyreek Hill is one. One is the most dynamic exciting explosive most fun to watch players in the NFL. He's very small wide receiver. If you were to Stanek some at the grocery store you wouldn't look at the sky and say wow he's an NFL player but when you get them on the football field key is arguably faster than anybody anybody else in the NFL. What he's able to do when he gets the ball in his hands and space weather? That's catching a pass from Patrick mahomes down the middle of the field. The Thai Rico. Taking jet sweep out of the backfield or catching a punt or kickoff return kill to the outside electrify in for the touchdown. He's one of the most exciting players in the NFL and he's expected to play a major role in the super bowl on on Sunday Probably being guarded by Richard Sherman. Can you describe what the matchup with the niners is GonNa look like yet. It should be a really great matchup between tyreek Hill and Richard Chairman. Who is the star? Cornerback for the San Francisco. Forty niners and one of the most interesting XS. and Os schematic thing. That's going on right now. Is How the chiefs are GonNa find ways to get tyreek hill away from Richard Sherman. Because they don't WanNa throw against Richard Sherman so the goal will be to find ways to get the ball to tyreek hill. Line him up in different places get him the ball and creative ways so that. They're not putting him in one on one situations against one of the best. quarterbacks and football tyreek hill was making headlines even before he ever played a single. NFL Game. Can you tell us about his college career and the incident that happened in December of two thousand fourteen yes tyreek hill kind of had a winding college football journey. He actually started at a community college and Kansas before enrolling at Oklahoma state and in his first year at Oklahoma state in two thousand fourteen he became a star immediately really because of his ridiculous speed his strength as a special teams players apart. returner this but late. In his only a year at Oklahoma state he was arrested and accused of domestic violence in an incident with his girlfriend who is twenty years old at the time and he was accused of Punching Ching her choking her and also punching her in the stomach while she was pregnant. tyreek hill was brought here to the pain county jail. His arrest comes just one week after for he was the hero of the bedlam game. So is arrest on the charge and almost immediately was dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team. He pleaded guilty into this domestic violence. Charge in addition to a battery charge and he was sentenced to three years probation. He was also instructed to go to anger management counseling to undergo domestic violence counseling. Although he was never sentenced to jail time He was able to continue his college football career when he enrolled at the university. I see of West Alabama. That's a division two school and then in April of two thousand sixteen sixty fifth in the two thousand sixteen. NFL draft against it achieves slack. Sorry Cal Wide Receiver West Alabama so it was a surprise. Actually that tyreek Hill was drafted because in in two thousand sixteen. We were still not that far removed from the Ray Rice scandal and you know tyreek Hill at kind of become kind of a poster child for a guy who got in trouble while in college in he. He was seen as one of those type of guys whose character red flags made him undrafted. He's had some issues domestic violence issue that that frankly frankly I thought might keep him from being drafted. This guy has blazing speed but the Kansas City chiefs went ahead and drafted him anyways. They drafted him in the fifth round in large part because of his forty or dash ty which was four point two nine seconds which is elite speed one of the fastest times that at any NFL players have run in years and what the reaction when he's drafted. It was pretty negative. We have to remember that. The Kansas City chiefs went through one of the most horrific horrific incidents in recent. NFL history in two thousand twelve. When one of their players linebacker named Jovan belcher killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide right in the parking lot of the chiefs training facility belcher turned one of those guns on Perkins reportedly shooting her nine times at the home? The couple shared with their three month Old Daughter the child was spared. This is a wound that was still very raw in the Kansas City community. You know very tragic senseless murder suicide aside and here the chiefs are drafting tyreek Hill player. who had pleaded guilty to very violent crime against his pregnant pregnant girlfriend and so it was? It was largely negative response especially from from female fans from the survivor community. I find that really frustrating that We're still holding up these celebrities As you know oh working on things things are getting better. We don't know what she's going through. And it's important to note that when Giovane Belcher thing happened Andy. Reid was not the head coach of the chiefs yet but he was tyreek Hill was drafted. And what's the response from from. I'm Andy Reid and from the chiefs front office when they start to see some of this backlash you know. The immediately held a press conference and tried to talk about all of the work that they had done into studying tyreek hill. Well we have our due diligence. We're regards to fooling vetting. Each one of our draft class members. They spoke to WHO His coaches and they also spoke to the prosecutors from Oklahoma in the domestic violence case and they said all right we. We believe that this guy i. I won't get in trouble again before given the opportunity for a second chancellor on the right things and so he's he's been in counseling. Continue to be in counseling. We've got a great support system here for that and that he would be a model citizen and largely for his first couple of years in Kansas City he was and despite this pushback that they're getting from fans both in Kansas City and across the country Tyreek Hill remains on the chiefs after after. He's drafted and he starts this season as punt returner. How does his rookie season go? Spectacularly from football perspective the open field. He's they're gonNA take special chance to sit in started out as kind of a wide receiver. Who is kind of buried on the Dutch art? But he was their primary punt returner and within a couple months of his rookie year. If you went to a game at Arrowhead you would see fans wearing that number ten tyreek Hill Jersey and every time that he would go back to catch a punt. You would hear in unison. Fans at Arrowhead stadium chanting tie wreak tie reek and he would feed off of it. The crowd would feed off of this energy. And you know. It didn't take long before. He became one of the most beloved players on the chiefs roster because of his football prowess and in spite of the ugly history that he had coming into the NFL and in the next few seasons go after the two thousand sixteen season so as far as football it only continued to get better for tyreek hill so as a rookie. He was primarily early. A special teams player. You know we mostly just saw him returning punts and doing a fantastic job of that. He was an all pro his rookie year. But you know after that first season he became the chiefs number one wide receiver. They moved him from a special teams roll into a role where he was going to be a major part of their offense and he handled that Smith winds up getting Franch Kansas City. He exceeded everybody's expectations as a wide receiver. She became at that point. The most important piece in the chiefs offense and then in March of last year tyreek Hill is back in the news with new allegations of child abuse. tyree kills three year. Old Son suffered a broken arm in March of Twenty nineteen. And how this this child broke his arm. That is the big question and that was what investigators in Kansas where tyreek hill his fiancee. The mother of his son were living living and ultimately nobody has determined how the child suffered this broken arm in April after about a month of investigation the district attorney in Johnson County. Kansas Released a statement that while he believed a crime had been committed they did not have evidence that can conclude Who who the perpetrator was? So that meant that it could have been tyreek hill. It could have been his fiancee. It could have been a caregiver a short time later. The case from a criminal perspective respective was ruled inactive the NFL's investigation and the Department of Children Family Services. Their investigations continued however and then the day after the district attorney in Kansas declines to press charges audio between Hill and his fiancee is released. What you'd rather him somehow or he fell one of the two? Then why does say deputy. Why Oh and just to clarify for listeners? Be Fiance Crystal. That he's talking to on this recording is the same woman that he pled guilty to abusing in college. Yes initially in April liberal part of this audio recording released and it was very damaging to tyree count. You could hear tyreek Hill could parading his fiancee. You know using threatening language is terrified of you and you say that he respects you but it's not it's not respect it's terrifying. He is terra of we need to be terrified of and the immediate reaction to that in the media from from kind of within the NFL world was how could they not charge him. After this month's later the full audio recording was released which you know didn't didn't necessarily tyreek Hill in a better light but it kind of even out the conversation a little bit reports he wrote. And if you want to rewind that night we can rewind that night to my house and pick you up and slam you know picked up and put out on my door and after that you've built bruises come from tyree waited the bruises. Come Out I'm asking. Where did the bruises come out to hit Youtube? You too and it was full audio recording that I believe is really the key piece of evidence for the NFL that led the NFL to their decision. To not ultimately punished honest. I recall after this investigation.

"And so like those guys you're just both with their ability to do stuff off the dribble and being big scores and their ability to hit spot upshots yeah I think those guys kind of both style of playing their roles let's get can help mitigate that a little bit another thing I would look at it I think they're not going to be any good on the break I don't really see who the guy who's going to push the ball for this team yeah so that's actually where they like terrence is they they kind of you him as a get it and go point guard you know he's a pretty good rebounder because he has been like a three for most of his career dachshunds saying like he's the point guard he's always been a point guard but he just didn't know it and Terence hasn't played that position since high school so you know that that is kind of how they envisioned him but yeah outside of that like look into it you know okay see played at a faster pace in the clippers last season and then okay see in Toronto both better fast-breaking teams I know that wasn't just because of client PG and there are other players in factors that go into that but I'm thinking maybe with some of the chaos they're looking to create defensively some of the turnovers they can force playing the passing lanes like that's something that PG alike do maybe they get out in transition more that way but yeah I mean this was a Slightly below average transition team this season I don't really see again maybe from creating steals and stuff that kind of ignites that but to your point like this is not a great fast-breaking team and you know in the half court offense since they're really good last season I think fourth in points per possession in the half court offense but only in the transition they're not good so that's GonNa be something to watch for as woah yeah I do think turnovers go can help mitigate that and then I think health obviously we hit on that a little bit but specifically I wanted to talk a little bit about because okay he's not yet load badges what's this series now over a year removed from the issue that cost him so much time in San Antonio at by the way everyone anyone who is saying that he was just like faking that injury ready to get out of there I mean I think it's pretty clear that he's early as issues and then here's developing soreness in the other need you to overcompensation last year during the plastic as amazing as he was last year I thought he really like John Issues able to guard because of his strength but I thought he really look slow compared to the guy that we've been he couldn't guard perimeter players last here in the playoffs like Steph curry who was killing him whenever he got switched onto or they they wouldn't switch those actions when he was guarding drawn just play conventional pickerel defense because he just wasn't able get out there and so I still have some concerns that this is just going to be a chronic issue that's all that's a lot of what we heard in seventeen eighteen for him in that it just GonNa have to kind of manage him get him there to the playoffs and then you know hope that he can make it through to really hard month so that that worries me a little bit and he hasn't had like a severe injury you know an acute injury yet but I don't think that this whole thing is just like always just fine now that's my opinion yeah no and I think Hang you know from what the Clippers have been saying P. looks I don't think he's a fully one hundred percent but he's pretty close to a hundred percent you he said that he feels much better right now than he did at this point last season and not he doesn't WanNa load manage as much So the clippers side I think they're just being extra cautious.

"Very few road series in NBA history where you would say that about it maybe some of those Cleveland teams that or he teams that didn't get the number one I actually think the something you know he would be a really nice fit with this group in a way that tries isn't necessarily and you know they could look to resigns of unlike favorite that's just a thought I mean I did it might argue who's better favors or dress I would say favors because of his two way dempster people would argue with me there but what do you what do you think of that possibility of those guys getting it just due to the fit concerns and to be clear like I just want to clarify like I'm not super down on Lou Trez like I I no no no I'm not either there the first and second and six last year yeah no so that's kind of the thing with this conversation is like you said earlier but we're starting if they really were that good exactly they both have flaws in reasons why they come off the bench and you know when you're at championship level there's a reason why championship teams tend to be top ten on both ends Sir if not top five and you know just the margin of error at that level of conference finals basketball finals basketball you can't really have a defensive liability in euro tation especially when playing as you know they're not on the fringes of the rotation they basically were number two and three in minutes played last season for this team so you know they wouldn't be in the this iteration but they could still potentially be in that four five five six mix in terms of minutes so I'm with you I looked I started playing around with the trade machine looking at who threads can be moved for because of his you know he's only making six million a year like it's hard to find equal value for him like a couple names that I saw that you know maybe what makes some senses is backup options where Robin Lopez and Sean Holmes and otherwise it would seem yeah I mean you can't give him jetson thing right like yeah so all the other kind of senator options are making way more in this team I don't I don't have captured in front of me but I I know they're they're under the tax but they're not that far under the taxes like like they could just take on a huge contract for says they are they are see dump their nine guarantees until you were there at they are are y'all with fourteen guys guaranteed they have two point eight million in room under the tax okay exactly so did they the wiggle room there with tries isn't that much and maybe they package another guy who could potentially depending on how he plays the season be you know move from them is Robinson because he was kind of the guy that I guess Lewis technically going to have to sacrifice the most from last season but drome is the guy who might not even get an opportunity now because you look at all the wings is in guards in front of him he's like the Twelfth Thirteenth Guy in the roster right now so I was just like in thirty seconds we need to talk about too much is he any good he so what's funny is he projected to basically be everything landry is and rotary of it right like drones Saturday they just got someone who is better than him at all those things drew drones the thirteenth pick which he was projected as a late first early second clippers reached took him at thirteen and then up training for Landry who was twenty six pick who was basically a better than jerome everything so at this point drome basis shooter who can't shoot like he was billed as this really good shooter yet he shot thirty one percent on threes last season and I don't remember exactly as his spot at percentage but it was much better than that so I think really the thing for him is he just has to come mountain prove he can shoot th the jury's still out on that like you know in practice it looks good and scrimmaging it looks good but actually applying into games is kind of the next step for him and road one thing with him is confidence and that was really a big thing doc harped on last season where he would have open shots and pass them up and dot com talked about this is the first time I'm not being the best guy on his team whether high school college whatever so he you know you maybe he's been shy or a little timid at times but I think for him they landry came in John's blazing first game against Boston they had that twenty eight point comeback he scored eighteen points hit four threes in the fourth and just came out shooting that's what they wanna see from home and sometimes he tries to play a little bit because that's where he does the G. League level but he hasn't really shown the ability to do that at the NBA level yet so I think for him what they really want is you know shoot aww high-level when you're open make your shots and that's kind of it he hasn't done that consistently yet so I don't know I mean I I would say things are trending a little more pessimistically for him and swipe part of me thinks there's a pretty good chance they end up moving him at some point but he report five million is what he's making this year so he seems like one of those guys that might need just need a fresh art similar we should also see his rookie option getting decline maybe yeah no I mean that's a reactor no I you know it would not be uh-huh especially if they are trying to avoid the tax it's a lot easier to move someone making three point five million if they don't have three point seven million guaranteed fit for next year big strengths for this overall group here that need we haven't hit on yet I I'm really interested to see the offense because last season's team really was pick and roll dependent I think they actually ran the most pick and rolls in the league and they're really good at it but it just was it was more of a we have so few guys who can actually go north to south that we need to run a buck Rosa Lou and tries pick and roll yeah that was the bread and butter of the second unit that was the bread and butter of closing game TMZ but this was a team that didn't have a lot of penetrators and really relied on you know whether it was you know guys setting pick and rolls for for Tobias or Gallo or whatever like this was a very pick and roll heavy team and then isolation's on the wings for Lou Tobias Gallo and I think you're going to see some of that you know you're still going to see the dilute traffic enroll you're now going to see ISOS for Cohen. PG is obviously much scarier than than Tobias and Gallo but I'm really interested doc said he went back doc watch some of the sets he was running for Paul Pierce because he hasn't had a good three during his time with the clippers it's been Matt Vons that's right it's very bad Barnes It's been Patrick Coaching staff called Patrick Beverley the three last season as six foot one small for like Dave Clippers of it's been a running joke around the organization like they've not had Komo four really since like Corey McGee and like you know two thousand eight and since then it's been just you know mediocrity at best at the small position so are they finally have to really good small forwards so doc wants to bring back some of the sets he ran for Paul Pierce he went back and said he watched a lot of the offensive possessions of quiet. PG last two seasons so I I expect going to see some of those quiet ISOS we're going to see some stuff for Paul similar to some of the stuff they ran for Landry Jay Jay and I think that's really to me going to be interesting is what's his team offensive ceiling because I think defensively we see their strengths defensively see weaknesses defensively I think they should push to be around a top ten defense when healthy but offensively this was the ninth best team offensively last season with kind of hodgepodge of of weird offense of pieces they had good offensive talent in Lieu Gallon Tobias but none of those guys were that elite Top Twenty Guy who could just get you twenty five to thirty no matter the circumstance and now they have to those guys and I'm really interested to see your doctor very good offense of coach teams are always in somewhere in the top ten usually at least in l. a. so I'm really see what teams offensive ceiling as I think they could push for that top five again though the resting the load management that's GonNa play into this you know I could see them being a top five offense with quite pg but what are they without those guys or without one of them and then defensively I think strength is going to be the perimeter defense like this he's GonNa be able to switch to through four in most cases sometimes even one through four pats on the floor and they might even be able to switch one through five if it Ju- Michael is at center so I think you know defensively this is going to be a huge improvement from last season it doesn't get much worse than some of the players they were playing last year so I I figure overhaul shrinks dish should be a top ten team on both ends it's just a matter of the resting in the load management yeah I think in terms of strengths that's the ability to isolate just they're almost invariably going to have a match up that is going to work for them with either by or teacher I'm very interested to see me I would imagine you're going to put the bigger wing on Kauai he's a little bit more of a power player and put the smart guy in pg because he likes to run off screens but PG you know he's fantastic shooting over guys himself so you have really is pretty difficult and got I can't wait to see the match up with the Lakers when they're healthy and like Oh who's Lebron Guard who's a de Gar that's going to be absolutely fascinating I think in terms of weaknesses that come to mind for me you know you've talked about the interior stuff I think passing is actually something that this team doesn't have a ton of right now yeah and that's that's where your the the two compositional criticisms people have had our another center on another point guard I think they're confident that like Lou I think is a really underrated passer in you know we'll we'll see maybe he's not on the team by the trade deadline like you said but you know they they we're confident that they've basically made him the backup point guard the last two seasons average over five assists a game both seasons and I think they think he's more of a point hard than people maybe give him credit for I think pats also an underrated pick and roll player an underrated passer again these aren't they're not elite or even certainly really good facilitators but I think they're above average in probably don't get credit that they deserve but yeah I mean to your point like they're gonNA have to run the offense through PG it's going to be a lot of them making those types of reads and for as good at those guys both improved as passers throughout their careers they're not Lebron James and that's kind of going to be a thing I actually think another weakness that people haven't talked about as much could potentially be shooting and I yup just because what I was so adamant earlier about Schimidt needing to have a role with these guys because you know so Zubay Hudson says you know I wrote about it so I guess kind of promoting it but there's kind of de both saying they WANNA shoot threes this season from what it sounds like a training camp that has not gone well and neither one will implementing that this season so that might have been a little bit ambitious but outside of those guys everyone else in the rotation can theoretically hit threes at a average to elite the level and in the case of Shamet and in Beverly and green but some of these guys are improving like we talked about earlier which Michael you know he's only really had half a season shooting at that forty percent level and you know maybe like you said he just needs to be around thirty five percent and that's good enough but you know he's also shot under that before so he's not on the blazers because he hasn't hit shots in the playoffs has basically what it boils down to so you know what happens with him in similar with Rodney mcgruder where he he's fluctuated between thirty four forty percent so an insurance man can't shoot three's at this point and until proven otherwise so I'm just like where's the shooting coming from you know that might end up taking a higher power already than anything were around quite PG is who the guys making shots and again that's where I go to Pat Beverley Landry shamet Michael Green like those guys make sense around quiet He Jian and that's why I think those guys will probably close games yeah it they are of course helped by the fact that both Kawai and PG are excellent off ball players themselves It parted as three indeed type of players and then were to evolve beyond that so they're perfectly capable as I think they're not going to be any good on the break I don't really see who the guy who's going to push the ball for this team yeah so that's actually where they like terrence is they they kind of you him as a get it and go point guard you know he's a pretty good rebounder because he has been like a three for most of his career dachshunds saying like he's.

"Lineups matter based on on his the last couple of years but I mean that to me is starting your up you by to me just doesn't seem like it has enough shoot anti green or more likely oh I decided to write something for the athletic about Fantasy Basketball House like I'd honestly wouldn't want to own any of the clippers this season because they're gonNA have like Landry Shamet when their health maybe that could be something that you could do or or close with that obviously as they do have and mcgruder could figure macho there's they do have a ton of options be very interesting for a Dhaka to work this out what is something about this team that may be do you think people aren't picking up on in terms of the national narrative I mean I guess we talked about Lou Williams not closing gains maybe that that would be one out you know people probably just assume all Lou Williams room in there and more talent with all these guys though they'll be in south will but anything else come to mind of just kind of an undercover D- story with this group I think this has gotten a little bit of coverage but maybe not as much as it should I think the one thing that could really undo this team would be facing a really bag good team on interior and the there's one team that kind of fits that profile across the hall where I do think like last season and last season was a bit of a weird season because like you said they traded basically half they're team at the trade deadline and the center station was pretty bad add all all season you know Kinda stepped in and just by virtue of not being Marsin Ghat improve the center play but although in fairness to Gore tot I mean I think he was washed but that starting unit that they had before the trade deadline was off later he was not set up to succeed there but in fairness him I I know this I don't want to turn this into the Martin Marsin Cortott podcast but it was The Him and Avery Bradley other together was was rough at I have spilled lots of thoughts and avery Bradley in how I don't think that's going to work with the Lakers but yeah I liked to that point it was just so bad last season where you know pretty much not really elite good big man torch the clippers at some point and like you know the the two games in Denver they got blown out and Yokich killed them Eighty ED a couple like thirty five point plus games against them Joel embiid absolutely destroyed them and while I think overall their defense should be better especially on the perimeter where just you know there are so small last season even after the trades where they're basically starting show was their point guard at six six which is big but then Landry and pat the two threes where six one six four and it was just like this is such a small team on the perimeter now that's gone PG and Kawhi to three you know that that might be the biggest three Combo in the League so that is going to be a nice welcome addition defensively I think Rodney mcgruder is going to help Mohawk lists like overall I think they should be a better team than than last season and but deteriorates still not fixed and they still have I think a lot of the same issues and that's where it's a little bit kind of confusing to me you know signing Patrick Patterson who doesn't you if anything the guy really thought they should assigned was joking Noah and I are that just occurred to me they were gonNA work him out and you know when I heard sounds a key kind of some new complications going on so he's not fully healthy otherwise they may have signed him but adding a guy like Patrick Patterson just doesn't make sense to me because he's basically a worst version of Michael Green and he's a guy who at thirty years old gotta think is best days are behind him and he hasn't been effective is been terrible for the two I mean the Oklahoma City desperate we needed anything that he could provide of his former school status since that need surgeries just never been the same yes so that the kind of almost wasting route like even training camp he's been going with the third and fourth units on one side of the court you have the bench versus starters on the other side of the court you have the you know a two guys that exhibit and guys the G. League guys and Patrick Patterson and it's just like I don't see any way this guy plays during the regular season and this isn't the bashing by any means but it just like I felt like they would have been better served signing another center because I've been thinking about on like if zoo gets in foul trouble you know the other game against Shanghai fouled out in eleven minutes and it's like if he gets L. trouble or he gets injured or Michael or tried something happens to them this teams down to rotation bags and I just don't really know what they do at that point like maybe you trade someone to get another big but I look at the buyout market I I don't know who's going to be available but I just think not feeling another center in the rotation could actually essentially hurt them especially because if you look at the best teams in the League Denver Has Yokich the Lakers have th the bucks have brick Lopez who's maybe not that imposing but still a good center the sixers Joel embiid and Horford now like the best teams that they're going to have to face at some point have really good centers and I guess that's my one thing with this team where there is a fatal flaw that ultimately cost them I'm just a little bit worried of the Interior defense the rim protection and overall defensive rebounding this wasn't a good defensive rebounding team last year it cost them in just using games I remember off top my head like there's multiple games where they're in close games and lost because of pivotal offensive rebounds they gave up and I think again that should be better you know playing playing pg those guys are really good rebounding wings but that doesn't all of a sudden fix that kind of whole at center so I know people have talked about it little bit as kind of the the one weakness of this roster but even watching them play the sharks who you knew d-notice Montus was the one kind of MBA caliber guy on that team he's still at them up I think he had twenty nine points and thirteen rebounds ten assists so he he he made some pretty bad decisions offensively but like he fouled out zoo bots residents turnovers you mean sorry covers and it was like I just if this guy's lied and you guys up like what is you all be going to do what is Nikola Yokich going to do what is Anthony Davis so that's my one thing heading into the season is I'm a little bit concerned with the Interior Defense Yeah and a rubric spend more than like thirty seconds on it but you think oh come cobaine Goulet Kevin Gaily Kevin Gaily right Kevin Kelly coming Galley Kevin Kelly art I think I just said the same thing twice he's he's actually I've never had as much difficulty with his name as any because I saw like a wrong phonetic print out of his name before we did the Amer league by gas and now they've just like I can't remember which what's the right way but anyway do you think number twenty seven overall pick they got him from eh trade for Brooklyn who had that pick Do you think he can contribute at all this year I think there's a chance and I think that's kind of who they I think they would go to him before they go to Patrick Patterson then but from from what I've heard in in camp it seems like he's still a little raw and they still want to see some more from him I mean he looked good summer league I shot three well you know I think he average two blocks game like it was pretty good defensive rebounder like there were some signs of they kind of envisioned him as a three D. Center you know a little bit of like a bigger to Michael but but more of a rim protector and I don't know I would say he's definitely not to the level that Terence's where like just fighting his way into the rotation I don't think fee is not yet we've yet to see him go at the bench unit in practice he's always been with the third string guys so my guess would be he's probably not right ready for from what it sounds like but that doesn't mean he won't be ready by mid season or later in the year so I guess he he's a potential option but even him you know he he's kind of like six nine and a half have sixteen like he's a little bit smaller Zubaydah's really the only true seven footer on this roster that that's you know providing any level of rim protection so I think that's a legitimate concern earn and I think that's that's the one move I could see this team making around the trade deadline very active the last few trade deadline's since his front office came together and it would not surprise me if you know maybe someone's not playing that well or kind of out of the rotation that ninth or tenth guy gets moved for another center the matching salaries it seems like everyone on the team kind of is a is a good contract to at this point so yeah I think the thing to answer my own question here that maybe isn't being taught about enough is the potential for Liu and or trust not being on the team at the end of the year and that those guys could potentially be traded I think Lou as we've seen the last couple of years you know for a team like say the magic or the Pistons or something like he's got a lot more value for kind of your lower end playoff team or even like the Miami Heat you're just a team that needs another creator but maybe doesn't have championship aspirations he's on a good counties non-guaranteed next year they actually they did guarantee him for up in yeah out of the goodness of their hearts for eight million but he'll certainly be worth that and then tries as well he will be an unrestricted free agent after this year and had another guy who I think has more value for a team that just it would just need an offensive boost badly I think he's an underrated attacker off the dribble to that's the game like if you get get him the ball on the move at the elbows he can really just blow by guys and just dunk on them which I think is in addition to being a great role man but so I think those guys as you know for all the as we talked about the beginning have more value to other teams and that maybe you can try to get something either refill the coffers in terms of draft picks or and they can moved their twenty twenty pick as well or maybe even get if not a star you can get someone who you know at least been like our solid starter for a long time leslie needed help on the wing but maybe that's a a solid starting center you know maybe maybe say New Orleans falls out of it and Derrick favors becomes available.

"The one guy on the team that I think could be upset by all potentially and I think for chemistry wise Cooper's are at the top of the League you know this is a team that spends a lot of time together in the summer they did a lot of offseason stuff they went on a fishing trip a paintball trip also different stuff but I do think Lou is going to have to take a back seat and that's kind of my one thing with rotation where I'm like I don't you know he's going from the man on a off team to potentially not even closing games that's a pretty big adjustment about two tries I think it's a similar thing where they needed tresors offense you know he he was so good in that pick and roll with it Williams I think statistically season he was the second best roll man in the League behind radio bear and you know they they needed that offense but now I think treasures limitations which are he's about six seven he can block some shots but he's not a rim protector not a rim deterrent and he's not a good defensive rebounder and I think those things when you're facing the Anthony Davis is the switch either like he's Kinda got Kenneth Farid disease where he doesn't move his feet while you'd think he'd be the just to look at it like this got like pretty quick feet but he really just Kinda doesn't seem to me yeah he he's okay he's okay there are some times but I I think that's where you're GonNa see Michael Green who really was the the the breakout guy for the clippers in the playoffs where you replace zoo bots in the starting line up you know there there's a few games last season where you know one game he defended Luca Danni rich and in the playoffs he defended Kevin Durant a little bit and at that point Kevin Durant was just going Supernova so it didn't really matter who they put on him but I thought he did fairly he was in position at least there's nothing really do want to six foot eleven guys is raising up like that but I thought Jer Michael really stepped up now the one thing which you Michael and talked about it a little bit in training camp is his shooting where he never shot the ball at the level he did as a clipper I think overall combining the play offs and the regular season he was at like forty four forty five percent like that's probably not sustainable in Dhaka's already said in training camp he hasn't been shooting as well as he did last season so that's Kinda the thing to watch what you Michael where he kind of all of a sudden just became a really good three point shooter and if he can't lease maintained that thirty nine to forty percent think he shot forty two percent of the regular season with the clippers like that kind of makes a little bit on playable because that was kind of his one skill offensively was hughes spacing the floor knocking down threes usually around the Lou Trez pick and roll but I think now they're actually might close games with him at the five instead of treads zoo boxes and other options what's is I think he kinda got some deserve criticism because of the warriors series but he actually just talked about this today at practice where he's like look I watched them play this cancer off the floor I watched them play Clint Capelle off the floor the one guy they didn't really play off the floor is mark a soul and that's all I really tried to study this summer so Zubaydah's very self aware of his limits nations he is try you know he lost ten pounds is trying to be in better shape for those types of matchups but we've seen the warriors play centers off the court so I think you know for for that it happens Zubec- isn't necessarily a surprise if it had happened against Portland or Denver one of those types of teams I think dot would have been a little more surprising so I think moving forward we're GONNA see Dwarf Zoo bots or Michael at the five closing games because the clippers are GONNA need defense they're gonNA need rebounding and those guys are just better than that yeah and it just again it goes back to not needing them because you got Paul George and you got Leonard on your team now to create a little bit yeah and green I mean I thought he just looked so much freer clippers uniform I think you've really up to three point attempt radio taking more difficult shots I always wanted to see him shoot more because he has decent percentages in Memphis but just for whatever reason send whether it was their scheme or whether he just didn't feel confident or whatever it was you know you didn't have that kind of bombing mentality that he did see I think he could get the but if you're talking about him as a small center now you know he doesn't necessarily need to be that level of three point because as you can just knock him down when he's wide open even shoot thirty five percent enough where he's GonNa get guarded I think the the further you go down the positional spectrum the less shooting you need to still maybe be an asset you think he's GonNa Play Center I do think that could be extremely intriguing like a big switch lineup from that with George. PG increase in the front court that's something I hope they try we'll see how that works. Then they got a job mcgruder embarrassment of riches on the wings here mcgruder and Mohawk lous who both who may not for nothing I mean those are like two rotation players yet mos been the standout guy in training camp outside of other second round rookie terrence Mann because he wasn't healthy for a lot of last year coming off of that knee surgery yeah yeah so I actually talked to Jason Quick about that are trailblazers reporter and he kind of gave me a rundown of you know kind of forced it in playoff series against the Pelicans which is kind of funny I was I was so critical of doing that like coming back after surgery two weeks I mean they didn't have Recent example of that in the past that that was going to work Brandon Roy like those just I was I was not happy that that that ended up happening but yes so Jason Basically told me like that compromised half of his season last year where it took him a while to find his his shot just find his footing offensively and defensively he kinda took a step back but the clippers have been raving about him and Dan Right now he's actually penciled in as the starting small forward I mean starting four they're viewing I think the opening night lineup right now would be zoo bots at the five heartless at the four quiet three Landry Shamet at the two and Pat Beverley a point guard so mo- mo- I think originally was kind of pencil in as benched guy but he's outplayed you Michael Green up to this point and that's kind of his role right now and you know they're talking about just Defensively the ability to switch between him Paul and Hawaii seamlessly offensively he's not the shooter that Michael is but they like is just as four spacing and in terms of his cutting off ball movement you saw it in the game against the Shanghai sharks which with the caveat that it's the preseason and it was against a you know a not an MBA caliber opponent he was in that dunker spot a lot cutting offensive rebounds and I I think that's kind of the way they view him now I think I think Dhaka's talked about this recently where they're going to have this sliding starting lineup so actually CG Michael Green may be starting against the Lakers because of Anthony Davis in he said specifically it seems like we're going to split time at the four and kind of be interchangeable on any given night but yeah Mo- is really been The STANDUP Guy that whole coaching staff and video staff is has been talking up Rodney Rodney you Kinda was that to start training camp but terrence Mann played so well that I it seems like Rodney might be the odd man out of that second unit a we're now he's kind of the eleventh guy in the rotation and the clippers are going to go with terrence Mann at point guard so he's really just kind of come out of nowhere they really like him though that like his court vision they like his size you know similar to kind of say six point guard really hasn't played point guard those that's Kinda the weird thing with it was he was a wing at Florida state and they played some appointed during Summer League he did really well was averaging like six seven CISA game and if captain there and now they're viewing him as the backup point guard so you know there's been some shuffling of rotation I guess during training camp but to your point like this is an embarrassment of riches if a Rodney mcgruder eleventh man like you have some pretty good problems yeah and he also did not only an embarrassment of riches and just players but just guys who really fit the modern came and I think that I've been talking about how the warriors with their demise there isn't necessarily a clear team out there that really is just going to like run you off the floor with all these defensive wings and shooting ability and you just you can't go big against them the clippers I don't know if they're going to be but they are probably the best chance of being the heirs to the warriors that maybe they just find this way of playing that other teams just can't match up with because they just don't have the athleticism on the wing to deal with it I mean Darius yesterday about okay if you're the Lakers whose guard George in WHO's GonNa Guard choir like how many teams have a player who can guard both of those guys are or two players can guard both those guys so and having this with guys like mcgruder green heartless I think that really Kinda plays into this and also kind of part of why agree with your point earlier of maybe Williams entrust third day could be really good off the bench they pop up the bunch they win those bench minutes but then when it's time to win those guys don't necessarily fit into that and when when the warriors got to contain their pick and roll and you know it was usually Kevon looney and Andrea Gudauta like those who couldn't really do anything and you know defensively it's not like the stopping them so I I just it's such a you know such a small margin for error with those to where if they're not scoring and being effective offensively you know they're not doc giving you much on the other end so that's where I think you probably favor jer Michael or zoo or patent landry because those two at least you know defensive believe they're gonNA hold their own the or even more so in in the case of pat but Yeah so I I think that's kind of the new development from last season is I do think you'll see all life from masterclass before masterclass became a sponsor my wife actually started taking their classes she's looking into trying to do some writing. on the side and so she was enticed by Margaret Atwood class but she also decided to sign up for their annual all access pass so that she can get every master Gaza now she's done a bunch of other ones as well I've checked out the Steph curry classified added time to actually take it a or mass shooting would be a lot better it's it's pretty broke right now honestly but I really was impressed with the quality of the instruction the fact that it's not just video they actually give you drills inter active stuff that you can do as well also the the guy who does the what not to do on stuff's video is briefly it's worth just tuning it for that alone and they've got amazing cooking classes amazing acting classes Serena Williams teaches tennis it's really just the highest quality product of this Ilkka that I've ever scene and the absolute best experts and because obviously these are people with huge reputations they make sure that the classes everything you would expect big names who are doing this so you can get unlimited access to every master class and as a listener a done you can get fifteen percent off that annual access pass at masterclass dot com slash cap space don't forget that /capspace Url

"jovan" Discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"I did the Lakers yesterday with dairy time for the other L. A. team maybe the better L. A. team this year the La Clippers with the athletics yovany boo Adam at I'm doing good great Iowa's getting style check before you got on the line because I think that you were there when I did my first ever John's and like put the laptop on top of the the media row an like get the court behind us and like shoot a show for like forty minutes after upper game is a long way from those days I guess those those were the good old days beginning of Lob city yeah that's right I mean that's pretty amazing of all the iterations as franchise a has been through since then so I guess the place that I wanted to start with this team is not necessarily who who they added but to talk about what they were last year and Kinda establish a baseline for what they have added so they were up forty eight thirty four a year ago ended up losing as the eighth seed to the warriors in six pretty hard fought games and so it's kind of the thought has been at you don't they had this awesome in forty eight games they're adding Paul George Leonard now they're going to be awesome how much do you buy into that line of thinking or do you think the there's some more nuance required than that I there's a little bit more nuance required just because it's not a simple just adding client. PG To last year's team because they lost shareholders Alexander they lost the Needle Gallon Ari and those are really two big pieces for them offensively Gallo probably was their best player start to finish last season shared really came into his own You know after the All star break and kind of peaked in the playoffs I think it was game five knows game four where they lost that game but he hit twenty five points I was his career high at that time and you know he was guarded by clay guarded by dream on scored on them Kinda effortlessly and it was like this is what we've been seeing all seasons sort of the the manifestation of Shea coming alive on the national stage so I think they're gonNA miss both of those guys in the really GonNa miss them when you know the season when PG's out for the first few weeks or quite takes a night off like it's not just GonNa last season's clippers team without them it's going to be last season's clippers team without Shannon Ala which you know is not a forty eight one team at I don't even know if that's a forty one team so I I think it's GonNa be interesting to me just how they manage all the stuff with load management and acquired come out and said that he plans on resting less but less he recipe twenty two games so is less fifteen games is that ten games is that eight games like we don't know that yet from from what I've heard it's like ten to twelve games but that could change an Paul George he's aiming to be back in November but November's thirty days long so as that November I or is that not thirtieth we don't know that yet so it sounds like he's angling towards the earlier side but from what I've heard it sounds like mid to late November still so they could be without PG for the first fifteen games of the season at which point ever pretty difficult schedule start the season if you look at the Utah twice the Lakers the Celtics in I think the raptors there's in a couple of other playoff teams it's like this is not just a cakewalk they're going to start like ten and five eleven and four like they could easily be like eight and seven to start the season so I'm just really intrigued how they kind of manage all this load management I expect when Paul George is actually healthy he's GonNa be on a a load management program where he rests occasionally so to me like just looking at it as they added quiet PG yes that that's the case Compla- off time when it's really gonNA matter but I think it is way more complex than that especially during the regular season yeah obviously the season long performance for the clippers last year there's a few reasons to talk about that one is just that they traded a bunch of their team halfway through this is there a started this season was getting all starts at for these guys are early on the team so it's avery Bradley yeah yeah I mean you know that was kind of addition or addition by subtraction that moving on from him because he was one of the worst part is the last year or two yeah that's true too yeah I mean he basically was done after that so and also their points of French all I think they're the luckiest team in basketball a year ago the point differential forty three win team so that's probably something to consider in this as well but of course one of the things that does remain is Montrose Herrell Lou Williams unstoppable bench pick and roll that really even the warriors were bedeviled in their two losses in Oakland to the clippers and so that's coming back how do you think that those two guys which really in a lot of ways were the basis of what they were doing gala was a maybe their best player but also you know twenty one twenty two usage wasn't the either GonNa just go to every time on the games how do you see when everyone's healthy now that Lou Williams mantras Herrell what their roles are are going to be your they're closing games are they just going to be look real good from the bench like a but then not finish against how do you see them fitting in with the more a more mature team the championship aspirations as opposed to a team that just trying to get into the playoffs so I I think to to your point these two guys that are going to have to sacrifice the most and I think I wrote about this right after they acquired pgn Qui- and I said I think Lou Williams is not gonNA close games like he's GonNa Clo he's still got close some games but last season they relied on him so heavily in the clutch you know he really was the crunch time offense and actually did pretty well in that position You know I think I just looking at like you know I guess points in the club she I think it was in the top ten or something close to that on average and he he was a pretty good crunch performer he hit a few game winners some some pretty timely shots and like the last thirty seconds of games and stuff but as we've as you guys have talked about as I've talked to my podcast defensively is one of the worst guards in the league and the corporate kind of had to just put up with that last season because they needed his offense but that's the long the case you have Kawhi Leonard You have Paul George those are going to be your to go to guys too close game so actually see guys like Landry Shamet and Patrick Beverley actually gaining in value because you're GonNa want those guys spacing around PG you're GonNa want those guys defensively like Landry I think been underrated defender you saw what he did in the playoffs against Steph he held his own to an extent defended Coqui to an impact it's actually kind of transition to defending wings more than small guards but I still think they're gonNA use him defensively in that kind of role when they play a Damian Lillard or Russell Westbrook or something like that so I think those guys as superior spot up shooters are going to grow in value whereas Lou is someone that needs the ball and he's not a bad spot up shooter but he's about a league I think is around thirty five thirty six percent so I I just think similar to the it's not the level of the Westbrook Harden dynamic where you like what is westward do without the ball but there is some of that where it's like if Lou doesn't have the ball in his hands he is not the most active off ball guy so I I think a lot of the stuff they did with landry was similar stuff to what they did jj and I think pat is just the ideal guy you saw what he didn't Houston with harden he's just the perfect kind of three D- Guy to put next to to ball dominant things are so I think those two guys are GonNa actually close more games moving forward and then with tries I think quickly look before before we turn their I mean completed with you there I think they had to basically they had the Lou Williams scheme when they played against the warriors which was basically we're going to switch everything and then if they throw it to lose Williams man we just instantly going to double team that was that was their scheme but by my recollection correct me if I'm wrong there and then in the playoffs and south part of just did a piece on and you know which roles for perimeter players and basically way up in the upper left of his graph was you know he did Dr between guys who hide on the lowest usage players and guys who guard the highest users players at Lou Williams was like an outlier like so far out on the left of his graft so you couldn't even see him so yeah I totally agree with you about defense you're going to move onto to treasure in doc had Dhaka's talked about it doc will say you know teams will target Lou like it's something the coaching staff talks about like they're very well aware of that lose even aware that Lou will say like on the record like defenses my strong suit so he they don't hide from that But yeah and if you if you look at a real high level conference finals type teams generally you don't have a guy like Lou Williams closing games right it just yet who's that bad defensively you just as Danny I've talked about this a lot of just the further you get in to the playoffs a lot of times it's more about not having weaknesses sometimes the and just having enough strengths rather than you're just when there's a place that's just so obvious to attack or get becomes pretty difficult yeah in one thing that doc said that I thought was really interesting was someone asked him if Lou is GonNa continue closing games and he he clarify kind of played it down the middle he clarified he's like Louis closer you saw what he did last season but moving forward it's going to be about closing lineups enclosing configurations and fits around Quiet PG and that to me kind of validated what I've been thinking which is you know there will be some nights where choir s or policies out and you do go to Lou or one of those guys gets in foul trouble or you know for whatever reason they're not maybe having an off night in you insert Lewin there for some offense but even last season they did a lot of offense defense subs with Lou and Pat Anytime Daca take Lou out you know you would put pat in or Or Avery Bradley so I do think already Kinda saw that last season even when they needed his offense they were willing to bench him I think it's just going to be even more parents this season so he's really.

If you if you aren't Twitter user, I'm here to tell you that there was a YouTube star on there this week trying to convince people that he didn't fuck and come on a cat. This is not this is not the first time. A YouTube star has had to issue. Very very weird backpedaling apologies for something. Something that's come out, usually like an old clip or something not a lot of old racist clips. It's it's a thing that happened a lot, and if you're paying attention most of these can be traced back to one guy. Is actually who we have on the show today. His name is Jovan hill for what I know Giovane kinda like the Wayne Gretzky of finding old clips of YouTubers saying crazy, racist shed or just weird shed this week this week. He found a clip of Shane Dawson telling story about fucking his cat, which I don't know if it was true or not, but became a big thing. And. Giovanni accounts already deleted for it. And I dunno. He's still going. So that's who we have on the show today. This is a little preview of it. Just a heads up. We're not doing a main episode this week.
