"Well the bucks played the Lucullus Mavericks last night at home from the bus. Right light work. Well they didn't just lose the game. The maps had control over this game. The bucks made it sort of a furious. Finish to make it into a close game but it was just has porzingas and seth curry who carried the maps. What do you think about this big win over the bus for the it's a great win for the mass and for me it was a confidence boost for KRISTAPS Porzingis? When you join a team that has somebody who's dynamic is Don which you gotta get in where you fit in with the next? He was the number one option. Go to go to the elbow. Three line he was the all all star. Now all of a sudden the season starts and Lucas takes the League by storm. Forty point triple doubles and all of a sudden. They're winning to correct. So now you gotta get fed instead of the other way around so I appreciated that for him. I liked the Steph currys plant quality minutes. And he's putting up numbers but I was disappointed in the book's other other four Star Wars. Yeah I was disappointed. He put up forty eight. You need some help. Correct needs met they combined for twenty three points off for them at cal. How korver came off? The bench had seventeen points. Greek freak was dominant but usually when the bucks play. Well of course you compete defensively of course communication is there here is they're shooting then. Let them down. Didn't shoot well from the field. Didn't shoot wealth from three.

You can get Sesame Street characters. No, I like that. Have you done it? I used to have Boyd band on my ways. Yeah. On ways. The ass you can change the voice. Larry put it in my phone tune. Right. So stupid. I love running. LV four. Yells. E did him favor and he just winning. You know, he has many jobs played again for Chris Z's on ways. If you wanna here. Didn't do all the listens. No, that's not true. Because I'm not a lot of airspace in between here radio bear radio. So as looking at some of this key Z is on something here. Okay. Kyle Korver in the twenty sixteen seventeen season which was not that long ago, three years ago K to five and a half threes a game and led the league at forty five percent. I'm just saying he was fourteen years old in. It was wasn't that long ago. Twenty fourteen fifteen. He led the league in percentage nearly fifty percent. He was taken six game. This man can make some shots. He's a seventeenth. Season is literally his seventeen south point. He needs to play defense. Well, yeah, that, that, that, that the liability we saw Korver in Cleveland, the liability for him on the court was on the other end. You're saying I watched him in important games build a house, he could shoot but important games. And you know as well as I know l z we've watched him important games in the in the end of his career these. Lou. Help him out. He's built a house with bricks. The consistent numbers tell a different story. I'm watching him is I don't care if it's against the Sacramento Kings. I'm talking about any important games. I watched him in the playoffs build a house. You're going to have to have. I'm not saying you're gonna have to have Kyle Korver, but have shooter, you're going to have to have Kyle Korver on your question. Get Vicomte Korver. I mean, if you look, if it's going to cost you pennies on the dollar, then yeah, yeah. I got one question for you and I have one answer for your aid. How many seasons derail employees? Eighteen guessing. And what was the couple of days ago, we celebrated him doing what hitting a big three that simple games overtime in game six but he was fired. Oh, no. Man. He wasn't playing no defense. He was. He was shots knocking down. But that's all that's all he was doing it. So season cow Korver did have the career of reality, but as far as shooters, concerned the numbers, the numbers, he can knock down that shot as well. So I get what you're saying key. But I'm just looking at a t lease trade to Memphis, which is always a rebuilding. They traded to Saul. They traded away my county junior. So that is looking to draft, you know, John Moran or something like that. The prey going to waive cow Korver. He's going to be available. He's gonna wanna go to a team with open. Looks familiar with the bronze say yo dog, I got like eight hundred thousand dollars you get this chip bam, I'm just telling you just it it's you're gonna you're gonna have to have a guy like that, because I'm trying to think of the best way to the Lakers have X amount of dollars. We don't know exactly what the number is quite yet, it's going to be somewhere between twenty three million thirty that it's going to be somewhere in that window, and do you go and buy another. Be plus or a minus. Or do you go get a bunch of CS and build your roster with some guys that and maybe Kyle Korver Steininger seal gig in half the you're gonna have to get not? And not just ACL Korver, you're going to have to get a handful be mine. It's not twenty three million. That's probably so. Yeah. Twenty-three. Let's say you pick up another extra whatever. And you you could get twenty three takes up almost all of your dough key. If, if you get some extra money from AD, however, they get it. You spend that twenty plus on your fourth guy, third guy, whatever you wanna call this..

I just telling you. They're going another direction. We call them over. I'm good trust. I'm good. Korver is probably gonna be Laker. Yeah. But the way by Memphis, he didn't do a whole lot for Cleveland with LeBron. Why, why are people stop man? He had a role. He played his role. He couldn't play defense. No, he just brick housing more than he was making way more. I'm doing some quick math here. This can't be right. Kyle. Let's see. One two, three four five, six seven eight nine. Tell us this is the guy going into a seventeen year in the league. Yes, not doing that. Yeah. I mean, there's, there's that the best we're talking about the money that's available.

No, I'm just telling you that if you're trying to get you try to fill out your roster and you got you got like four hundred thousand five thousand six thousand dollars left to fill a spot. Would you not do it on a career forty percent three point shooter who's already played with the Netflix? Eh forty percent was fifteen years for the forty percent is a real number. That's what he shot but he's his seventeenth year in the league. I know there's going to be a bunch open. Looks on this team because guys are going to be dealing with LeBron AD and coups. But I feel that we could do better than absolutely. One of the greatest shooters of all time. Come on me about the better talk to me about the benefit to off. Well, let's, let's play this out a little bit further shooting, four, does a game didn't even hold on. Let us know cut the headline of this trade is my calmly junior.

You're going to have the flesh out the roster with guys like Rubio with guys like Korver, you're going to have to pick up the same guys. I understand. They filled different roles.

Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic overwhelm the Trail Blazers

"Tuesday night that nuggets completely pummeled the blazers at home in Denver one twenty four and ninety eight of the big story coming out of that game was Paul Millsap after a pretty tepid series against the Spurs Millsap has been absolutely beast. Ing the blazers he's dominating, man. But he's pretty much scoring a will. Yeah. And I think a lot of it is just like he means so much to that defense that like is basically honed by a bunch of dudes who are younger than twenty six. They're all they're all born after the ninety s. Millsap is the only player born in the eighties on that team. It's really wild. He he's been a real strong stabilizing force for them. I think for the most part it's because Millsap has been on a me new has been on guys who haven't really who don't really possess a lot of you know, playmaking prowess on their own. So he's been able to kind of quarterback from the back line, and it's made a huge difference. I mean that's been the story for Denver is like they're really exposing. Which I mean, we knew it was gonna happen eventually, but Amini one heartless they're just not guarding those guys. They're playing off them. It's letting them hide Yokich yet Millsaps kind of in the middle quarterback in the whole team. You look at like I feel like I look at these two teams. I look at one team has spent the money on Paul Millsap when they had creating space and wants to put them line. Evan turner. And it's like one move like that as such an impact like when you're paying thirty dollars per event. Erin, you've got to have the right veteran it, of course, like it isn't fair to Portland because I don't think most was free that summer, right? No. There's so much luck that goes into it so much chance that goes in the team building. But it's made all the difference in the world. Yeah. The other thing too. I remember size of the I did a big store in Yokich at training him. I remember talking to Millsap about it. And to see him talking about how he recognized that Yokich was so talented, how encouraged Yokich to take up Ford Nicotrol the team how I took a step back and sort of focusing on defense to complement this young star. And this is right. When the whole like Jane bar thing happened in Minnesota. And I was like man, this is what like a great veteran. Does right. Like, I had the ability to change my game to encourage younger players to empower them. I feel like a Millsap to me like what he's done on. And off the court. It's just been really it's a really cool too cool to see a guy like recognize his limitations and kind of make his team better 'cause he could've easily pull Jimmy Butler feed one to and been like, I'm Paul Millsap. I'm making three dollars a year. This is my team complement me. And like you're saying we can do it and get the ball on his hands. He can allot, but he's like chose and take a step back. And now when his time. He can pop in. And I haven't go to conference final Jimmy's out here. You know, fight when players all the time. I mean, it's really amazing that like him and Al Horford or just kind of cut from the same cloth. They shared the front court for so many years and in Atlanta, Atlanta's just like, I can't believe those two players coexisted at the same time. And I can't believe the hawks couldn't do much with that. I mean, they just got burning into LeBron. That was that was always there thing. It was really it was a fun team. It was like a hipsters paradise team, man. And then they may Jeff Teagle a lot of money they make calc over a lot of money. I mean, they made the Mari Carol out of money. Look back on a now like Teague. Caroline, Korver such limited players, but in Atlanta, played with Millsap and Horford, they looked freaking awesome. That one year. They're all stars.

"korver" Discussed on First Take

"If you're just joining us, we were reacting to Kyle Korver opening up about his position as a white player in the NBA in the players Tribune in white privilege, specifically Stephen it will pick back up with you. What impact you think this will have is calm? The hope is that it will encourage more players who are not black to speak out about what some of the African American players. They around have to endure because I think that at this particular moment in time, it's important to shed a light on why a Russell Westbrook would be so fiery at a fan in Utah of few weeks ago. All while others have found themselves in more, noxious, confrontations. But confrontations, nevertheless, the reality is this calm Corvus thirty eight years old. It's not like he seventeen eighteen nineteen. He's thirty eight. He's been in the league quite some time. And only after the double Steph Alosha incident, according to him in his article in the player's Tribune. Did he really find? himself questioning some things. And then he had never spoken about it. Until the report or protest him a few weeks ago to ask him about what had transpired with Russell Westbrook and the fan and Utah. So that made him that concert of thoughts about what happened to several Moshe. What his initial thoughts were about what happened to separate losha and get it forced them to gather, some introspection, and ultimately addressed the issue with the courage that he did. But that's what it took. And on fortunate reality is that in order for us to get to a better place as it pertains to gathering an elevated level of understanding about these African American athletes, and what they have to endure on a day in day out basis as I con figures brands in of themselves making exorbitant amount of dollars and garnering the hostility and vitriol from some fans because of it the reality is that in order to get to a better place. You're going to have to have individuals from the white community like. How cord that's Indian BA community showing a willingness to speak out on behalf of their brothers from other mothers about what they're enduring and what it's like and how he grievously unfair. It is if nobody is willing to enlighten you about things, then where do you go? I mean, Dr harriett would set it best. I remember on my Email Dale Brown with some of the motivational stuff that he sends out sent out a quote from Dr harriett with talking about silence is eagles greatest ally. Because you gotta speak up. You gotta speak out about some of these things and those white players in the NBA are clearly in a position to do. So because they're running amongst those guys they're making money themselves. And like how Corey said they don't have to worry about too much of a backlash because they are white. They always get to walk away. If they want to this issue frequently breaks down along the lines of personal responsibility on the one hand and. Like Charles Barkley, for instance, will bring that up and sometimes get criticized for its hung about black people African American community taking personal responsibility, and and institutional slash structural, racism and answers on the other hand, and but it's always applied to African American people the personal responsibility. And by the way, there is a good argument. There's nothing wrong with thinking about I all to think about personal responsibility. As it relates to this stuff, nor is it bad idea to talk about how we can change institutions and structures to combat the pernicious effects of racism, but it is interesting that it is always African American people who are told personal responsibility. Isn't it like Kyle Korver? Good for him for standing up and saying something and more white people should in Chris long when he put his arm around an African American teammate. That is a good thing. The way p we once did for Jackie Robinson good for you white players. But again, would you? About who is who caused the situation right who whose responsibility is it the fact that it's so often put on African American individuals to take the responsibility and not often enough put on the people who enjoy the privilege because once upon a time, it was not white people excuse me. It was not black people who were responsible for the international slave trade or slavery, reconstruction or Jim crow or disenfranchising voters or all that stuff. Right. That was that and white people as a result of the way classes tied to race enjoy the privilege. So it is incumbent upon people like Kylo Korver to strand up and talk about it. That's why it's important, but it's not just incumbent upon them to do. So because a level of sensitivity and sympathy is something that they should harbor within their own soul. Initial provoked them to speak out. They should also be. Willing to speak out because it's about simply asking yourself. What if it were you in that kind of situation? What if you were prejudiced against what of bigotry and racism, raked your life at every turn? What of driving down the street with something that that was received as as an endangerment to yourself. What if you set up there, and you got pulled over by the by some police officers 'cause I'm not one of those that believe all police officers are bad by any stretch of the imagination. I know I get in trouble. I'm dialing nine one one. So I'm certainly not going to excoriate a denigrate them in any way, but in terms of the brutality on the part of some police officers what if you were the one that had to worry about it. Once you got pulled over by the cops to conned of concerns that you have would if you asked sizing in corporate America, what if that proverbial glass ceiling over and over your shoulder for into into perpetuity. What if you had to deal with all of the things remember, we live in a society where it's been basically acknowledged that stress is. A major major killer. It takes people out and challenge anybody to to show me more stress on allies of human being then there is more stress on the lives of a black human being we got it rough. And that's just the reality of the situation is about asking yourself what if you had to deal with those things yourself? How would you feel? I think that needs to be the underlying emotion that provokes action on one of reasons outside of the black community one of the reasons. Kyle Korver came to this more enlightened position is because he has teammates of color, and he has relationships with them. And now he is exposed to more. And Chris long strikes me as someone who maybe already understood this nevertheless, put his arm around Malcolm Jenkins right at a time when it was really cut down racial lines divided by racial lines, the white player so and that is important. It is important for white people to take that responsibility. And since we're talking about sports. We're talking about you know, athletes of European descent. Applaud Kyle Korver and grateful to have this platform that you guys can have this type of discussion. If you're looking for the reason to work with local gyco agent, I have all of them because I'm the voice of reason reason one Geico agents could help you save on more than car insurance reason to they can help tell your policy to fit your needs reason three their local and for their local.

"A lot of other people have had to say, but you're gonna listen to it more because Powell cobras the person who says it now for me, the fact that he really stopped at considered a lot of things in the ways that he did I thought that stood out the other thing that stood out was he low key said man, we shut the door the locker room we talked about it. When these other guys didn't play for Utah. They really hated playing in Utah. I wanna credit Kyle Korver because he was owning up to stuff that we don't often hear people own up to in public. He talked about being teammates topos f- Alosha one of the guys in this locker room meeting about the jazz, which we'll get to in a second. But he was talking about topos f- lotion how when he had his incident with the police the police brutality case in New York. Kyle Korver admitted that he thought that if it was him out there. He would not have that way. He would have avoided. This was a top Assefa lotion Pacific incident. That is a level of admission that he did not have to volunteer at the very least right phrase. He said that about duty new. He's like, hey this. I know who speaks all these languages in that find to be such an era dyke guy jammed up out of cops. My first thought was I wonder what he did right to ignites that part of realized that that's the step to try to figure this out. This is also a beautiful thing about the NBA. Now, great to Cal quote repair a little bit longer to figure this out. There doesn't necessarily thought he would have. But in the NBA, there seems to be a cultural exchange that takes place that is different than we have in other American professional sports, and that there's a level of discourse. That happens the players that were not really hearing about nearly as much say coming out of the NFL. Would it comes to these matters? And so for quarter to come out and say these things the way he did. And to say it to a broader audience to say, hey, man, these are the things that we need to do. The question is are these people that love this article right now, they go re tweet it or they actually go to try to live some of the stuff that he said because that's all whole lot. Great job. This really really moved me is really made me think. But when it go make you do it is really helpful for the way American discourse works that we do have a guy who's like the NBA's Ashton Kutcher being the. Messenger on this. Because the message as you point out has been attempted to be communicated by black people for a very very long time. And so there is a guy without any of the exit ramps. Right. None of the capper Nick esque exit ramps. We could actually focus on the message. But speaking of the message there was this conversation with fellow players if we can roll the video because you've though chiming in on the jazz the organization. Put down, but if she can create some type of she's a wealthy woman. She could hop on the phone with twenty nine other owners and other sports on his in and. Kinda hold them accountable. And now that she's put himself out there. I think up to the players to hosed the organization that countable. SE? He's onto something there in the sense that what this again Cal corporate thing demonstrates is some people kind of sort of might listen to meet more people will listen to cow cove, and a hell of a lot more people will listen to this rich owner, right? And so if you're going to have this measure changes probably going to have to cover the people that have the real power. What are they going to do because they're to refrain of offending the customers to try to make the customers act guess Steph, one those speak with clarity about the issue. All right next thing is Paul Pierce form. The former subject great settled. Maybe a countdown this weekend. He had a better career than way way. Both NBA finals MVP you have him in career points. He's got more playoff points. You were more clutch shooter overall. He's got more playoff points. Paul riddle me this better NBA player. Sees off the bat that's making give me shack..

Islets gives us some size or you were saying, the nickname for pulse. Silence which for you is size. It's always six seven. He was telling. Disney stuff a player. No locker as a coach, Paul Silas. I'm pretty sure he did. I'm pretty sure as a coach I've heard that story before that Paul Silas. Someone came up on Paul Silas when he was coaching, and he just put them in a locker Cleveland, epi, Jess, please. Let it be true. Just go ahead and Google Paul Silas and locker he shove tyrus Thomas in a locker room. I'm trying to get the details as to whether he stuff too, but an actual locker. Lease. Points fans doesn't stop. The point stands is it not whether it stuffed in the locker just shoved in the locker room. It's still the same sort of pulse. Ira silence rage. Did you really say you could go one for seventeen in the NBA? I said that from three if I was standing in a corner. I think if the ball is thrown out to me, I could make one out of seventeen guarded like they're full out. Just he thinks he can get open one time because you know, they're playing five on four because they're not respecting Chris. Kids sit in the corner and like don't go near him. And he's dude I got the Billy don't do this again doubting me.

It's further than you think it is. I'm making one of seventeen at Lille. Yeah. Maybe three I'll get myself three.

Nineteen points a game thirty one point two points per game in the fifty nine season. And then number twenty eight I have Erin a follow little punch. Little scoring punch off the bench and number twenty nine Paul Silas and size. That's a good team. I honestly, don't Jordan and don't get. I honestly do not know whether you said pulse. Islets gives us some size or you were saying, the nickname for pulse. Silence which for you is size. It's always six seven. He was telling. Disney stuff a player. No locker as a coach, Paul Silas. I'm pretty sure he did. I'm pretty sure as a coach I've heard that story before that Paul Silas. Someone came up on Paul Silas when he was coaching, and he just put them in a locker Cleveland, epi, Jess, please. Let it be true. Just go ahead and Google Paul Silas and locker he shove tyrus Thomas in a locker room. I'm trying to get the details as to whether he stuff too, but an actual locker. Lease. Points fans doesn't stop. The point stands is it not whether it stuffed in the locker just shoved in the locker room. It's still the same sort of pulse. Ira silence rage. Did you really say you could go one for seventeen in the NBA? I said that from three if I was standing in a corner. I think if the ball is thrown out to me, I could make one out of seventeen guarded like they're full out. Just he thinks he can get open one time because you know, they're playing five on four because they're not respecting Chris. Kids sit in the corner and like don't go near him. And he's dude I got the Billy don't do this again doubting me.

"korver" Discussed on Elite Man Podcast

"And they do it at an elite level, but that's really the main area where they add value to their organization is. Catching and shooting. So if you ever go watch Kyle Korver or JJ Riddick workout. That's what they spend ninety five percent of their time working on is making their one strength, even stronger. JJ rettig. Kyle Korver don't spend hour after hour trying to get their passing or their ball handling or their defense up to mediocre because that's not what pays the bills. They do one thing. Really, well, so they take their strength, and they make it even stronger, and then they found an organization that needs that one strength and it fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. That's why the elite teams are so successful is they usually have one or two really skilled guys that can do everything. And then they find everyone else. That's a puzzle piece. And here's the reason why a lot of guys don't stay in the league. Very long is their ego gets in the way, they don't have the humility to accept the role that this organization needs. So the team says look we need you to be a great defender and a and a rebound of for us. We don't care if. You score. I don't care if you Pat like if you can get us ten to twelve boards a game, and you can defend we will pay you fifteen million dollars a year to be in our beyond our team. And sometimes that's not enough. Those guys also want to get ten to twelve shots a game. They want their name, you know, going along the ESPN, ticker. And that's where the problem is people have their ego. Get in the way, and they don't accept the role that will allow them to star in that role for that team. And the ones that have they stay in the league for a long long time. You know, you better believe that if JJ Rettig leaves the Sixers next year, they'll be a dozen teams that want him because he has one of the most coveted skills in the game. Which is he's he's a long distance sharpshooter. So being able to figure out your one thing and think about that how that translates the business. You know, maybe you're one thing is sales. Maybe you're one thing is marketing, maybe you're one thing is graphic design. Maybe you're one thing is is management, whatever your thing may be work on making that. Strength so elite that the organization they need you. You know, instead of this this concept, which I think everyone gets enticed by which is we should all be well rounded, and we should all work on our weaknesses. I don't necessarily believe that I think you should make your strengths as strong as you can certainly tighten up applicable weaknesses, if their ally ability, but outside of that, I don't think you need to pay much mind. Yeah. That is such a great point, man. And you think about especially in the corporate world like right off the bat that makes so much sense. Like, you're trying to find somebody. You're the person right now. And you're in a corporate world corporate setting, whatever it is they're hiring you for a specific reason, they're not hire new to be the CEO and run the whole ship. And, you know, do do everything they're high on you First Pacific role, and you have to fit into that role. And then that makes so much sense at three and a half years is about average for MBA players because these guys their whole life. They're dominating, you know, youth basketball. They're going up CYO basketball high school basketball college bass, they're the best player by far..

A rare misfire for sharpshooting Stephen Curry this season

"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. A rare misfire for sharpshooting Steph curry this season by Scots ler. It's hard to know what to believe these days, the nineteen sixty nine moon landing and walk if Steph curry doesn't believe it can it be true look closely at those pictures in the background you'll see Starbucks now. I hear Kevin Durant believes the warriors faked their visit to the Hamptons three summers ago curry in the fellas didn't really fly cross country to court K D. Those were holograms created in one of team cone or Peter Guber movie studios fake love. And now we're supposed to believe that curry shooting fifty percent from beyond the three point arc going into Wednesday's game against the Toronto. Raptors the stats said curry was shooting fifty percent on threes. Ninety one for one hundred eighty two curry came back to earth slightly Wednesday in the warriors one hundred thirteen ninety three loss to the. Raptors he hit two of eight from long range lowering his percentage to forty eight point nine still a good number. This is Curry's tenth season and his previous bass was forty five point five in twenty eleven twelve his career Mark is forty three point nine. So what's up with the fifty? He's maturing said Bruce Fraser, the warriors assistant coach who works with curry daily shooting drills post practice and pre-game. That's it. We're all maturing. Mrs never bothered him before Fraser said, but I think they bother him less now so Curry's chill factor on three point shooting is now below zero his conscience has frozen over it does seem to this casual observer that curry has been even less inhibited with his shooting this season. Kyle Korver has been dubbed threes. So curry is Lord of the letter flies. He just sees the game better Fraser said but fifty percent. That's x Ray vision. Nobody in basketball history has pushed the limits of three point shooting. Like hurry has what he's done with threes in the shooting equivalent. What he's done with threes is the shooting equivalent of a moonwalk but fifty percent for such a high volume shooter is absurd. Take it from a man who knows Steve Kerr. The warriors head coach is number two on the season. Three ball percentage. Chart. Fifty two point four in nineteen ninety four ninety five top dog is Korver. Fifty three point six in two thousand nine ten Kerr shadow over fifty percent in a season three times. But where curry is attempting an average of ten point seven threes per game. Korver incur each shot. Two point one per game in their best seasons in corpus highest volume season. He attended six threes per game and shot forty nine point two percent said curb before the game you would expect fifty percent from a guy who's just going to stand there be wide open and shoot three of them in a game. There have been a couple of guys who've done that pause for laughter. Continue. But in terms of flying around like Steph does shooting off the dribble shooting the volume of threes that he does shooting the half court shots at the end of quarters fearlessly. It's almost impossible to do that over the course of a season. But I don't put anything past staff. That's for sure volume shot. That's where Curry's three balling strange credulity on the list of career three pointers made. Curry is number five with two thousand two hundred twenty two which is seven hundred fifty one behind leader Ray Allen, but Allen played thirteen hundred regular season games. Curry's played less than half that six hundred forty three. Everyone ahead of curry played at least eleven hundred twenty six games on this season's list of most accurate three ball shooters. Nobody among the top eighteen takes even half as many threes per game as curry it's easier to make threes. If you take a lot of them tell that to James harden, the only player in the league who shoots more. Threes than curry hardened shoots eleven point one per game. And makes thirty seven point three percent. If curry hits the fifty percent Mark or even if he has a routinely spectacular season of shooting threes Kurd deserves an assist playing incurs flowing offense. Designed for Cari has allowed him to evolve. As a long ball shooter from crazy. Good to shot up. Not only did Kerr design an offense to maximize Curry's talents. The coach also blended Klay Thompson, and then Kevin Durant into the mix. So seamlessly that defenses can't concentrate on curry crazy stat going into Wednesday curry Thomson and Durant where each taking an average of nineteen point seven shots per game. If curse oh smart in the second half of the season. Let's see him. Get DeMarcus cousins nineteen point seven shots per game. Two as for curry is it possible for him to join his own exclusive fifty ten club fifty percent on threes. For season while attempting ten per game. Sure said Jonas Repco on Wednesday. He could shoot sixty percent, right. And man could walk on the moon.

It's led by education secretary, Betsy DeVos, NPR's Scott Horsely reports. This is the president's first formal policy response to last month's deadly school shooting in Florida, the agenda ally. The White House is generally consistent with policy positions of the National Rifle Association that group supports arming teachers and other school staffers, as well as improving background checks.

The NRA opposes higher age limits, though administration officials say the Presidential Commission will explore that idea.
