"Belly. But no, I mean, yeah, he has a different type of strength. And I was listening to some people talk about like Luke as athleticism. I don't know what it is that's going to finally motivate him to do that. I mean, I feel like play yourself into shape thing was a little less glaring this year for him, but he just has that insane core corn fed kind of strength. And it's so long as he like, I don't know, I don't know how he needs to change his body. Honestly, just because you can't move him. And I don't agree with people that say he's not athletic because I think athleticism is a little more nuanced than people realize like Luca has such crazy micro dialed in control of his body in terms of like how he can start and stop so herky jerky and that's why he's such a matchup problem. I mean like tonight you were watching any kind of person you put on him there's gonna be a caveat. There's only like certain types of guys that can really bother him effectively consistently. And he was bullying those nicks smaller guards and when he gets a big guy on him, he just toys with them. I don't know. Do you think he needs to get into like insane LeBron shape or it can he even get into that type of shape? The thing he has at this point of his career that LeBron just didn't have it all. Not even close is his bully ball stuff. That stuff LeBron didn't really have to like the second third Miami season and even then he didn't really have it until he got to Cleveland. That was when he really filled out and he started to develop this power game and was able to mix in the perimeter stuff at the low post stuff. I felt like that evolved as he was in Miami. And it was always the great what if with him? You know, and it started that 2011 finals when, you know, the JJ barrel, all that stuff. And that was when we wondered, hey, is this guy this guy going to figure out how to solve this? And then by 2016, he had it solved. And Luca can already do it. And that's where I'm just like, you know, he's never going to be the crazy athlete, LeBron was, but it does feel like he has a little more to his game at this point. Then I think LeBron did in year 5. And they're basically the same age, right? Luca came in as a baby, LeBron came in as a baby. And by year 5, I didn't realize Lucca, I'd kind of forgotten this that he is four seasons, three first team all MBAs already. It's kind of bonkers. Like even LeBron didn't do that. So, you know, I think nights like tonight are when we really start wondering, you know, you think like, oh, we'll never see another LeBron again. And Luca's going to be his version of Luca. But at the same time, maybe this is a thing where like every 15, 16, 17 years, a guy like this comes into the league. Before LeBron was Jordan, he came in in the mid 80s. And maybe that's just how this is going to go. I

Hey, ratty while we've got John, we'd love to swim. Gears and ask you some questions about the summer games in Tokyo crossing fingers that the games do do go on. But you're the chief fundraiser for USA Swimming. How do you think we stack up against the rest of the competition? Globally, We're gonna have some grapes from us. The United States has been number one in the world of swimming for 65 straight years. That's not going to change this summer, and you have a A local in your area named Missy Franklin, who is a very famous swimmer, one of the most famous in history, And even though she's retired, and Michael Phelps is retired, that won't change this summer. We will have a great team Katie Ledecky. Was the greatest female swimmer will still be swimming Caleb Dressel, who might just be on track to win six or seven gold medals this summer. So we're going to have a great swim team and I really feel like the Olympics in Tokyo, which I will call my eight Olympic Games this summer for NBC will be the greatest Olympics in history will look back on this Olympics. Is the greatest in history. That's my opinion. I don't know any fact talk about cautious optimism, cautiously optimistic that it's going to take place and take place safely and securely. I was going to ask you that because there is some talk that they're going through 1/4 wave in Japan and it's interesting because we're talking about the safety protocols and water and covid and the like. But you as an Olympic athlete when you're in and around the village. Would you be nervous as an athlete to be in that environment because of Covid? No, absolutely not. That's me. Personally. If I have been vaccinated, I can't think of any national teamer out there that has not been vaccinated. I think most of the world's athletes Coming into this This village will be vaccinated. But the most important thing to remember I worked for a Japanese company for eight years. I know the Japanese people very well and they will do everything in their power to keep this Village. These athletes safe and secure. There is no doubt in my mind. They spent over $30 billion to make this happen. They're not going to Have any expenses, Um, go by the wayside and keeping our athletes safe and secure. That's an interesting perspective. Before we wrap up with you. I was reading that swimmers are used to doing their final races in the evening. But because of the international TV schedule, they have to do them in the morning instead. I think this happened about 13 years ago in another Olympics in Beijing, But how big of a deal is that for swimmers? Do you think to try to get their mind around that different timeline? I only get the big deal at all. Everybody's in the same boat. Yeah. I mean, it would be different if you know someone something in the morning somewhere that night, but Everybody swimming in the morning. So you're all together in this situation, and it didn't matter in Beijing in a weight, and I don't think it will matter in Tokyo. The great thing is, it's live in prime time in the United States, so you'll be able to watch everything alive, at least on the swimming side of things. Right here in the United States has the year Delay made it tough for swimmers because your creatures of habit versus having it last year when I was supposed to be versus having it this year. It has no doubt about it. I think you know, in the beginning, especially a lot of summers in have pools to swim it.

"Things considered. I'm Ailsa Chang and I'm Ari Shapiro. What sustains former President Trump's lies that he won the 2020 election. On several key states. It's a growing media network that is creating an alternate reality for some Republican voters and politicians. Georgia Public Broadcasting's Stephen Fowler takes a look at one outlet. If you don't follow politics in Georgia closely or even if you do, you might be forgiven for not knowing much about the Georgia Star News. Founded just after the November election. It looks like a regular news site. There's a lifestyle section, a widget for the weather and stories about local and national goings on, But there's more going on, says Steve Bannon, former Trump strategist describing the outlets focus in a radio interview. I mean this content, you can't get anywhere else. It's not, you know, we're not Conservative Inc It's very populous is very nationalist. It's very Ma gets very American. First. It's part of an expanding network of sites seeking to influence local politics with conserved. Bit of opinion by mimicking the look and feel of local newspapers. These in turn, are part of a larger pro trump media ecosystem. Some of those sites have spent months turning out false content, suggesting Trump won last November. Many of the sites have been around for a while. But the 2020 election and an intense focus on battleground states like Georgia has helped their stories really take off. Georgia's fledgling website gets a boost from publisher John Fredericks radio show that has featured numerous figures from Trump's orbit plus influential Republican politicians in Georgia, pushing false claims of fraud or challenging those who didn't overturn the election. Republican Party chairman of Georgia David Shafer state Senator Brandon Beach Jones, running for governor in Georgia, Congressman Buddy Qatar, So there was a ready made audience when the Georgia Star published a story mid June. 1000 absentee ballots placed in Georgia. Dropbox is willing to spread something that would ordinarily be a blip on the radar. First, the Georgia Star website ran a story that said Fulton County, which includes Atlanta could not produce crucial chain of custody documentation for ballots returned in drop boxes. The story seemed to question the validity of President Joe Biden's narrow victory in the state. Days later, county officials were able to find all but eight of those forms said all the ballots were accounted for, and noted that Georgia's election was counted three different times in November. But in the conservative alternate media sphere, the story began to pick up steam. Fredericks had Steve Bannon on his radio show to discuss the breaking news This Georgia star story this morning unless I'm not reading it correctly, and I think they've actually buried the lead. It's the most explosive thing. I think it's happened in this entire process. From there. It ricocheted across the pro trump media sphere to TV networks like one America News, but we begin tonight with breaking news. Out of Fulton County and getting aggregated by sites like the gateway pundit that regularly traffic and conspiracies and misinformation, But the story was not limited to the fringe of Republican politics. Several pro trump lawmakers and primary challengers demanded an investigation into what happened. So did Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger himself a frequent target of misinformation and attacks from these sites that led mainstream outlets to run with rapids burgers, response of pushing the story further into the spotlight. Even though the county has found the forms. The Georgia Star hasn't updated its story because it says it still hasn't received that data from elections officials. Just a few days after the original story, Trump issued several statements and linked to one America News segment about the misleading story. How in the world can you be missing chain of custody documents? For one out of four absentee ballots in Fulton County and praising the writer by name for quote, the incredible reporting you have done. Meanwhile, the story breathe new life into Trump's false claims, which he repeated at a Saturday rally in Ohio. The biggest tragedy of all is millions of Americans have lost confidence. In their vote. We can't let that happen. In an interview, publisher Fredericks says the Georgia Star has a growing audience of people that want an outlet that tells the truth gets the facts and can quote punched through the fake news networks. And he says the site is profitable thanks to a large number of ads from Republican politicians and groups. And if somebody needs to reach informed, motivated readers that want the truth. Advertising with us is a great opportunity for them is a great our live potential. After last week's rally, the Star News Network snagged an exclusive half hour interview with Trump. And all caps headline The next day touted the conversation and it's take away. There is no more important issue than the 2020 election, Trump said. For NPR news. I'm Stephen Fowler in Atlanta. U.

It happened to the track and field trials in Oregon last month. Shakeri Richardson She's 21 says she ingested pot after finding out her biological mother had died unexpectedly, and she said it sent her into a state of emotional panic Now, the US Anti Doping Agency announced today she's accepted a one month ban, which started June 28th. That's the minimum suspension allowed under the current rules, and she was given the minimum because the merry marijuana use was out of competition. It wasn't related to sport performance, and she completed a counseling program. Okay, so one month from June, 28th. But the games aren't even a weekend at that point. So why couldn't she still compete in the 100? M good question, you know, based on the calendar of events she could July 28th is when the band would end track and field events starting the 30th, but The positive test disqualified her from 100 M at the trials, which she won, which means she can't compete in that event at the Olympics. There is still a possibility, though, that USA Track and field could choose her for the four by 100 M Relay team. No word on that yet. Well, her being out of the 100 M like how big of a deal is that? It's a big deal. She had a good chance to win gold. Her showdown with the great Jamaican sprinter Shelley and Fraser Pryce that was already being hyped. The 100 M.

What have been the reactions to the news today? Uh, disappointment and anger best captured in a tweet by Star NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes. And I'm quoting here. This is so trash man. Just let her run. There's a widespread feeling that since marijuana has been so normalized, and since it's legal in nearly 12 States. Why punish someone for it? This country's top anti doping sheriff, Travis Tigert, He's the US Anti Doping Agency CEO. He acknowledged the sanction is a tough one. He called it heartbreaking. But as he also said the rules are clear. The World Anti Doping Agency classifies marijuana as a substance of abuse. It's on the prohibited list because it meets some or all of the following criteria. It poses a health risk to athletes. Has the potential to enhance performance and violates the spirit of sports. So like it or not, That's the rule and shit. Terry Richardson got caught up in it. That's.

Are you confident they are actually going to happen? Well, first off, you know, we we We are very confident it's going to happen. Whether it's a conversations we're having with the IOC or are people on the ground in Tokyo. We have already we have about 140 people in Tokyo, which is a great sign, and I'll be heading over in the middle of July. I head over on July 16th. I'll be over there for about a month, but I go back to last year. When the postponement was decided, which, of course, made all the sense in the world and It was the right decision for for so many reasons and to realize that it was going to be postponed for exactly one year worked out well for us. We could plan for it. We could get ready for it. And quite frankly, so many of the lessons we learned over the course. The pandemic which is hey, we can do more from our headquarters and Stanford. We can do more from 30 Rock. We can do a lot from our colleagues home Telemundo in Miami, So we will be doing a lot more from the U. S than we otherwise would be. But we'll have 1000 plus people over in Tokyo, obviously led by our you know, Gary's and tell And and Molly Solomon and You know that what was really going to be the face of the Olympics and Mike Tirico?

Because in so many ways, it's going to be a worldwide celebration of all of us coming out of this prolonged hibernation and to see these great athletes, these men and women competing for their countries at the highest level, I think it has the potential to be like nothing we've ever seen before. And we have some amazing superstars. When you think about talk about transcendent. I mentioned Tiger Woods being transcendent. You think about somebody like Simone Biles Katie Ledecky were so loaded on the men's and women's side and track and field. We're calling it the United States of speed. So we're going in there with a ton of energy. I can't wait to get over there and Fingers crossed, but I think it's going to be pretty remarkable. There are a lot of interesting interesting challenges here One and it is just broke a few days ago that the organizers want The media members to wear GPS devices. So they can track them to 14 days because of the coronavirus and all this going on now, Some people don't like that, but that's one of the challenges involved. Can you take us through what you guys have gone through trying to meet the challenges of this The good news about Tokyo? When I was reading an article early this morning about you know, the vaccination rate in Tokyo is picking up The public feels better about the games coming there, So I think all of this is heading in a really good direction. You know, If this were just happening out of the blue, it would be one thing. But in so many ways we've been training for this. For 14 15 months. Figure about the pet of your entertainment. I think it was said that this will be the most profitable Olympics ever for NBC this to share that view. Well, I've been focused on the excitement of these Olympics. How we can bring these great stories to life. How we use the work that our team does so well. Led by Molly Solomon about introducing us one thing to talk about Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky, some of the other great stars, but Many of the Olympic athletes or people that are our country is going to meet for the first time over the course of the our Olympic trials, which are happening right now, over the course of the 17 days of the Olympics. And if we can really bring these games to life, as we always do, people understand the celebratory nature of this Olympics games and how it truly is unique as I mentioned Has this great kind of return to maybe something that resembles normal over the course of the globe.

Good to be with both of you, Marty. First off, Let's dispel some of the myths that are still out there can covert 19 be spread through swimming pool water? No, absolutely not. And that's not rally, saying that that is, according to the CDC. In fact, they literally say no evidence. Covert 19 conspired to people to a pool water. In fact, it's just the opposite. In the fact that properly coordinated water actually kills the covert virus so that it can be dispelled right now. Are there some things pool operators? Rowdy should be doing though, in regards to keeping everybody safe. And you'd mention the chlorine piece. I wonder if maybe some pool operators. Do they put in too much chlorine in that processes of which has other effects that could be obviously been around pulls your whole life can be a little harder on the skin and on the eyes. I'm very and I work for an organization called the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance, and that's something that we are really good at not only educating the swimmers this summer about staying safe, but we also do a tremendous job in Certifying and educating our our members. I think most full operators and I have found this because of my travels over the last year. They're very diligent on keeping that water. Properly coordinated, and that means testing it on a now early, sometimes on a half hour basis, all throughout the day and educating and communicating to those rumors, how they're doing it, You know again. I'm very proud of our pool operators across the country because every single public pool I've been to over last year has done a tremendous job. Not that they didn't do it before.

But now there are some reports that there could be an All Star game instead of in mid February in early March, March, 7th is the date. That ESPN has reported it's likely to be in Atlanta, in part because the arena is a good one. They have hosted the All Star game before. I believe there's also a fairly good sports infrastructure. There and notably when she Turner Broadcasting is right there at home in Atlanta, so the travel of all the broadcast cruise and everything like that that wouldn't be involved. I do feel like it would give a sense of normalcy and a rhythm to the season if they were able to actually do that All Star break and put on an All Star game, even if it's not a big, fancy All Star weekend.
