"Some bad. because. I think if I I think if I am going to Orlando to cover that that restart. Yes, I think a large portion of my family in the house. Be Happy to see me go okay well again. That's an interesting part about all this We even Jay Bilas on last hour talking about. Hey! If you go cover some Co, go cover the NBA, and you've. You've gotta go leave for three or four months. You GotTa make a decision yourself and you know, and and that also puts into perspective that the athletes involved in all of these sports in the conversations that are had they're human beings. They're human beings I, and and and and that's where I want to I. Guess Lead this conversation to your report over the weekend. What did Kyrie Irving? Organiz over the weekend, what did happen over the weekend in this this video conference with NBA Stars here? Essentially it was it was it was a call about? Eighty players that one pointed got to I wanNA say Max of eighty four players in there, and it was star some all all ranges stars. I mean it was player small ranges, so it wasn't just odd Kevin Durant. Russell Westbrook rent there, but. I'm basically he wanted to give everybody who felt like they didn't have a voice in this process wanted to give them a platform to air their grievances. air concerns It was the platform where a lot of young guys got to talk Donovan. Mitchell Bam in Orlando, Donna Mitchell made a point that. You know. He felt like with his extension of being. You know being coming up this summer. You know he he was has played because he didn't want to mess up chance to get a Max contract. You felt like it'd be came back INS. What if he got hurt? S- You know that that a mess things up on his end, so it was a bunch of concerns dwight. Howard Carmelo, after the the Avery Bradley they all. Kinda agree with Kaya that you know there's more important things one all playing, and then, but most of the that was that was the minority you know was about five or six guys. Let it be known that. Debate they weren't interested in plan they felt like is the time to make change. What's going on our society right now and the other portion you know the other people there was just trying to explain to them. The ramifications of not playing so there wasn't. There wasn't enough opposition. To say this thing is headed in in a place where there's not going to be a season. That's not the case of law I it was just career. Just giving people a platform to fill like You know feel like they're in this process in that. Because that's what a lot of help folks young young players. That was their criticism that they didn't have a vote. In the say of the season. We saw that okay so. Would you Please give more of an airing to the philosophy that you said was in the minority that that instead of protest being part of the sport. Protest instead of the sport. and. And who was at Kyrie in Dwight? Howard I mean who who and give it a little bit more of an airing on that. Theory philosophy if you don't mind Chris. That was yeah. That was the Kyri Dwight Hauer a Brett Lee. Carmelo Anthony. trying to think who else. No business somebody, but you know they're fill you know. Donald is Donovan's. Is Concerned with you know his his. It was more song that obviously with the he was. You know he was you know. He was tested positive for up before. So you know that's on his mind as well, but his his main concern in that call you know sources say was You know extension now you can receive the summer, not jeopardizing getting a Max contracts, but most of the guys that had a problem with going and beer and plan. It was due to you know racial injustice going on in ATHABASCA Jewish. Flood tragedy, and so they were Dwight Howard, you know he he was passionate. He felt like if they don't take the stand now. Like what are what are we going to stand for? They felt like you know players were saying you know just the optics. Just being huddled out there in Orlando. Just being stuck. You know just bad optics book elite majority African Americans just to be stuck over there just entertaining purposes and economical. Factors, and so they felt like you know we gotTa Make A. make a fan right now and take a stand that you know this is not about money. You know would be some sacrifices. Yes, but we still like you know. We have to be on the front lines. That's what Kyrie. Irving said he was willing to to risk it all to be on the front lines and try to make a difference in the community, so though those were those were some. Reason those things that they were voice. You know during this call and you know it was a call. It a car through this wasn't. A tall sanctioned by the players association careers is Vice President of player sociation. So this kind of this came out of nowhere. You Know Chris Paul. He got he you know. He was a part of it, he? She called in, but this is what this wasn't something that he thinks it and so You know a little bit of a of a monkey wrench. SORTA say, but at the end of the day I you know I felt like he was one that was unify. It had a lot of people talking out for the Beatles wanted quite has died of the. you know he was very talkative. The community and it at the end of the day it was a phone call to get everybody on the same page just to see what a go here from now and if anything just a Gillette allow people to have a voice who who normally wouldn't Christine's of Yahoo Sports, joining me here on the rich Eisen show. Where does it go from here? I don't think it's changes anything. Get a look the simple. The simple fact of the matter is if you don't WanNA play. If you don't want to go, you won't get paid for those games. That's it. Nobody's forcing the put nobody's sports. The players go over there, and so then like I said there. There's not enough opposition out there like if you pull. You know four hundred and fifty of the players. You know the players, I said they're not going or don't WanNa go. That's going to be in the minority. Most players go over there and play and largely largely. because. financial ramifications you know their owners I mean the players feel like if they didn't play. On Seb up which you, which would most likely happen, and that fifty fifty bi flip that they have now..

"But this doesn't feel like entitlement or diva, type, behavior, impulsive, stuff or anything else. He's just like you know I'm not going to do this. supplus that I am not going to do this, and those are the people in this I really do applaud and a lot ways. We just make these individual decisions like the WNBA. To talk about the work that those women in that league do in terms of social stuff, but what I love about my more is waking up. It'd be like Hey. I ain't playing this year. I got something better to. Dedicate myself to that people just. Can't do this right now. So that we talked about Kyri Dwight Howard where they're like. I think a lot is going on outside. I'll do whatever the large group does, but I think that that that now man. If you bought it, you go, make this happen yourself right and people that are willing to stand alone like I was talking in a group text with a couple of people. And we were talking about Kareem. Abdul Jabbar and how Korea doesn't get enough. Credit. Cream boycotted the a sixty eight Olympics all by himself. He himself was like now. I'M NOT GONNA go. Now don't feel right. I'm not doing it by himself. Like that takes heart that takes a whole `nother level of your situation to make these decisions all by yourself that you're not going to do it. And we're starting to see those people, Papa and those are the ones who ultimately inspire those are the ones who make people look at themselves and be like okay. Why can't I do this? And that's how you get it more likely that you get a group of people in the room because it's more of these individual things that energy is contagious, people just. Just. Look around, but like know why we gotta do this. Like the Mississippi thing with the flag is interesting, because this is what I think happening with it I thought. At least the governor of Mississippi seems to be given a different impression, but my thing was to Mississippi is there wasn't really a push for taking that flag down? I'd seen discussion but I. I had really seen a push and the next thing I know. The southeastern conference says we're not going to give you guys championship. Even though they had to give them a championship god-knows-how-long in the state of Mississippi, and so they said we're not gonNA hold championships there and then we gonNA statement from president. Mississippi State I. Think we've got a statement from. From the president of Ole Miss and then the governor says over the last several years I repeatedly warm, my fellow Mississippi, any attempt to change the current Mississippi flag by few politicians, the capital will be met with much content if the leadership of two thousand one had not put it on the ballot. Then compensation compensation may be different, but they did and therefore. Therefore. We must work together to find a solution where it went. Everyone has their say. We could come together as a family and prosper. We must work together to find a solution. Once all said and done unites as people proud of our future I've been thinking and praying hard about the best way to accomplish that over the weekend. There has been proposal floating. Floating among some of the legislation to create a second Mississippi flag. Let's call it the separate, but equal option well intentioned I'm sure it does not meet the threshold. Any similar plan would accomplish the exact opposite of our stated goal. It would actually divide our state more I. Don't believe it was satisfied. Either side of this debate and I don't think it is. Is a viable alternative. Now had no idea that people were actually talking about trying to come up with a second flag like schools have second problems right? I had no clue that that is what people were talking about. However, the governor gets. This is a bad look, right? The governor understands that this is probably something that they cannot stay. The governor also understands. Understands that he is in such a fiercely segregated state and I need explain this to you to understand the level segregated in Mississippi and a stance, more Mississippi and other southern states, but it still stands out in southern states less. Do you realize how segregated is holding has to be if that state is thirty six percent black in every state wide offices Republican. My black people vote over ninety percent. Democrat right thirty six percent of the state is black ninety percent of that thirty six. Is Voting for Democrats and the Democrats can't win no thin. The races aren't even close. That's because all the white people voting for Republicans in a way that is not case in the rest of the country. They all law like that's the level of divide that they've got there. And so I think the governor knows this flag has to go, but also knows that if you leaders to a popular vote, why folks do it right? The Need to demonstrate to black people that white people are in charge of Mississippi has been going on basically prior to reconstruction, but especially since reconstruction because there were so many black people Mississippi's majority black for so long the only way white people can maintain control was through these means. That was the only way they could do through terrorism through all of these days, because otherwise, it was just too many black people that they. They played it fair and Square Mississippi would have had black leadership for over a century if they played a fair and square. South Carolina would have blacks leadership for over a century. You get where I'm coming from here right? And so why people have always enlist zipping galvanized voting for whiteness, because that was the only way the whiteness could maintain power in that state, so this confederate implements in the quarter of their flag is a sign of that power, right risk the twenty first century when they decided to keep it okay, so that's a sign of that power. That governor knows that. If they put that on the ballot, it'll never come now. They know that, but I think all the tricks Ole. Miss had to go through to finally get the confederate flag out of the stadium and the way they finally got it done was not by banning the flag, but by saying you couldn't bring the flag if it was on a stick because the stick was.

"What was the Michael J. Fox thing called family ties I think that's what it was. With, Justine Bateman. Mallory. I remember the guy who produced that I remember I saw him interviewed. He goes once. That gets into syndication. I can retire, and they were have to work another day. And this guy is still pumping out stuff. One Eight, hundred, eight, seven eight play. One, eight, hundred, eight, seven, eight, some five to nine to get in and get her whatever you WanNa do. The the NBA. we know that Kyrie Irving has been outspoken. About. Maybe, not playing and we had people like Austin rivers. Put out a big long statement that. I thought that was very well worded about how we can. Use the NBA Platform for change. Well Charles Barkley has now piped in on this, which shouldn't be surprising. Even though unlike baseball, the owners and the players have already agreed on what they're gonNA. Do they're going to go to this bubble? Starting at the end of July an Orlando. and. There were about one hundred active NBA and wnba players. That run a conference call. This weekend, which was led by Kyrie Irving. Who by the way is the vice president of the Union believe it or not? I say believe it or not, because he always seem somewhat a little bit. You know. So I say selfish I, Dunno, whatever? I'm just surprised by. He kinda I thought he was more into him, but. Irving presented his case against restarting a season. And he said it would distract everyone. From the push for social justice reform. And, then he talked about player, safety and the bubble. And other players spoke out to about potentially sitting out. And Donovan Mitchell, the jazz star guard the. Future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony Superman himself the elderly Dwight Howard. The banged up Kevin Durant. And the President of the Association the Union Chris Paul. So the argument about the whole thing is one thing. That's all real. But then it gets a little bit. It depends on your opinion about whether or basketball is a good distraction or bad distraction Charles Barkley has a different view. He says by players, not playing. That the players will then lose their visibility. And then lose an opportunity to promote the message on this huge platform. You know every day if you look at your local sports regional network, what are they airing? I'll bet you right now if you're milwaukee. Their airing brewers games. Are you sick of it I didn't want to see one and I have not seen one rerun. It's just. It's just it makes me sick. And be like if you. You know you broke up with your girlfriend. And then someone gives you a mannequin wearing your ex girlfriend's clothes. Hey. She's back. That ain't her. Making myself laughing inside? The Barclay pointed out. That also by not plan, YOU'RE GONNA lose all the money that you could invest into your communities and promote change. He said on ESPN DID Barkley. Quote I think it would be stupid. To not play for two reasons number one. If they don't play, they're going to be out of sight out of mind for the rest of the year. It won't be cameras following than Lebron's probably the most famous out the United States will be visible anywhere at aside out of mind. Also, these guys got to realize this money is going to come back and they're gonNA lose. Billions of dollars that the players could use to go into their own communities and do some great stuff, so let's not get on any front. I have no idea what Kyri Dwight or talking about. It would be catastrophic. It would be a catastrophic mistake not to play. Now! Despite concerns, the League is. The plan is not in jeopardy the Union director Michelle Roberts. The. League exacts Adam Silver. They're all on board. And Michelle Robert said. It's not a question of player. Not Play. It's a question of does playing. again harm a movement that we absolutely unequivocably embrace. And then whether play can in fact, highlight encourage enhance this moment. That's they're talking about. They're not fighting about it. They're talking about and quote. Well to Barclays Point even if they never made another dime, and even if they played one game just for those guys. To have a black lives matter patch on their. Jersey, we could see. It. Everybody. And let me say the word is out. The word is not out. There are people out there. That have still never seen a super bowl. I don't have email. Don't say that everybody who's heard a black lives matter. Not Everybody has if they hear it. They don't understand what it is. What's that now? Is that a spike Lee movie? No, no, it's a movement. So while Barkley. Thanks, the NBA should definitely resume and finish. The guy sitting on his TNT. Desk, she'll Shaquille O'Neal. Wants to scrap it. Now that was a few weeks ago. The shack from quote at the time was I. Think we should scrap the season. Everybody, go home. Get healthy. Just come back next year. Just grabbed the season just scrap. Try to come back now and do a rush playoffs as a player any team that wins this year. There's an asterix. They're not gonNA get the respect. What teen? That's not really the mix all of a sudden wins with a new playoff format. Nobody's going to respect that so. Scrap it. Worried about the safety of the fans, and the people come back next year, and now I disagree with Shack. That no one had respect it. The NBA played almost their whole year. The NHL played almost their whole year. Well, let's just say. More than two thirds of their year, it's not like baseball. Where right now they would play less than a third of a season. Less than a third, even Babe Ruth's time, fifty aims would be less than a third. That would have me thinking. Joke champions..

"And you get sick now. Here's what I why I think they. Shouldn't necessarily sign. The waiver is what if it does cost to your career right? If you get sick and in in that, we're instance and his lungs, and some long term lasting impact from it. Yeah, then then, how are you going to be compensated? So I think there's gotTa. Be a way to negotiate that rather than just say no. You can't sue US now. The overwhelming this I'm going to kind of steer the conversation different direction here. I know we got Ramona coming up, but You know. Cova is overwhelmingly turning out to be. The people that are dying from it are almost exclusively older. There's a Wall Street Journal article today that that does a good job of laying all this out that your chances of dying from Covid, if you're under the age of sixty or about the same as you, your chances of dying in a car accident, but that doesn't mean Mace that. You can't get it. Get Sick and lose your income and I would think those people need to find a way to get protected so I would hesitate. To I don't think the players should give that right, but I would. I would be anxious to learn more about it. What do you think about that specific issue? Well I mean without question. If you have an underlying condition, if you're a senior, you're much more likely to get sick and potentially die from this. And the the wall. Street Journal piece I've seen but. No, reason to doubt the results and the reporting there. However, there are instances. you know I had a friend who? had a Kobe related stroke. Who's who wasn't sixty years younger than sixty was? Who was my age? You know that's one of the potential. Outcomes of having covid. If you're a younger person right, so let's use that as an example, if if a if a baseball player unlikely, but if it happened to a baseball player, he should have some recourse to receive compensation. It shouldn't just be nope too bad. You got, and you can't play anymore right? Yeah, so they need to negotiate that it shouldn't be a black and white thing. There should be circumstances all right coming up next. Next forty moment's GonNa join us. He's probably got some baseball stuff, but we're going to talk to her. About the White House wrote it. She's listening article about this whole Kyri Dwight situation, and with the latest on that is so she'll have a lot on that Yup Mason Ireland Seventeen Espn Damn right. I come back with my best personality. Don't you think so far? You get it you yes, very exciting. Yeah, all right. You know passionately. Very passionate today there is a lot going on very passionate about it all and nothing. I just tweeted. MLB, better not break my heart today. It's the Game I love. This could be a hell of a dodger season. Owners and players better not burn down the house. But there is definitely lighter fluid in a match right now. Okay, so here's why everybody's freaking out about baseball tonight on ESPN. Mike Greenberg is hosting. What was strangely labeled as a return to sports special about how we might return to sports. By baseball could do this yet. But over the weekend the owners made a proposal to the players. The players rejected it and the players basically said look. You're not negotiating with us. You don't care about any of our proposals we are going to. Just tell us when to show up and we'll. Have a scheduled. Just give schedule will be there and by the way we planned to sue you for not negotiating with. US Yeah. And Rob Manfred in the owners didn't take kindly to the threat of a lawsuit and. We've we've got. A piece of the interview that's going to air tonight on the return to sports, special and man for does not sound confident that we'll have a season at all. Here's Mike Greenberg with rob Manfred well I, know the owners are one hundred percent committed to getting baseball back on the field. Unfortunately I can't tell you. That I'm one hundred percent certain, that's going to happen. I had been hopeful that once we got to common ground on the idea that we were going to pay the players full prorated salary that we would get some cooperation in terms of proceeding under the agreement that we negotiated with the MLB PA on March Twenty six, unfortunately over the weekend while Tony, Clark was declaring desire to get back to work the unions. Top lawyer was out telling reporters, players, and eventually getting back to owners that as soon as we issued a. A schedule as they requested, they intended to file a grievance claiming they were entitled to an additional billion dollars. Obviously that sort of bad faith tactic makes it extremely difficult to move forward in these circumstances, what are your concerns for the optics of this circumstance playing out as publicly as they are during the time in this country were all the other things, the confluence of events, involving the pandemic protest in the streets and everything else of this playing out his publicly as it is. It's just a disaster for our game. absolutely no question about it. It shouldn't be happening and it's important that we find a way to get past it and get the game back on the field for the benefit of our fans. Would you describe your feelings as confident that they will still be a season? And I think that's where he says no I'm not confident. Going to fill in the blank, yeah, I'm not. Only what do you say? It ended it a really weird by. That's us. On No, he he, he didn't answer the question, he said No. I'm not confident. Now John You know I love baseball, and you know this. This is my and you know I live for the dodgers it is, it is my team been all those playoff games on their favorite go to the world series this year by a wit we are, we are absolutely stacked and loaded.

"The NFL and he's at the undefeated. Let's get started. Do, you still expect the NBA season to resume are probably needs to be said because we love instances like this to attack messengers that Kyrie Irving is absolutely doing his job and dominique could speak to this as someone who has represented people on behalf of a union. He is doing his job by bringing up the health concern and saying. Let's sit out the season, but can we also just laugh at the two messengers here that Dwight Howard first of all Lebron doesn't want to hear that window closing and Dwight Howard is chiming in with an absolutely nice message, but. But Lebron clearly doesn't WanNa hear it seeing how Dwight Howard is in reversed now on this and Kyrie irving looking like while he's out for the season telling everyone else to join him on the sidelines, and also harming Lebron in the process of you do love some of the soap opera elements of this it gets lost obviously in the bigger societal issues that we have in our face, but these two messengers honestly guys I couldn't think of two guys who would be funnier as active athletes, the needs to go down with this message even as it's an uplifting message. All right I think the season is going to resume because I. Don't think either side can afford for the season not to resume the financial ramifications of this, especially the fact that the owners could tear up their CBA and place it. There were no lever trying to get it fixed in a pandemic that tells me that they are going to play basketball and I want to be. Be careful about this. Kyri Dwight because I wouldn't follow them anywhere, but I. do believe that they mean well. I do believe we're at a point now. Retirees been in the League for nine years, so it was a do that has a measure of influence over younger players, all of those things, and if they're concerned about health and safety I, think that's a reason to not play. Play if their concern is that this will distract from the larger issues that are going on industries I feel kind of patronized that you think can't watch a basketball game and keep up with what's going on outside at the same damn time. How Dare Kyri and Dwight Howard till me that I cannot concentrate on multiple things at one time. Come on now, but they're gonNA. Play the. The money is just too serious right now for them not to play. They're not that different than a lot of other people who might prefer not to go to their jobs, because they might not be the safest or the circumstances outside and society had them thinking about larger things, but that's now go shut the NBA season Dow something might, but it ain't going gonNA. Be Does, too. I think you're right, but if we can separate the Messenger, I think that obviously if we're talking about the virus concern, there's no argument there but I also don't think there's any argument that not playing basketball is probably better for this caused and playing basketball. I understand but money that you may be able to focus on these two things at the same time, but you're a black man. You can't not focus on issues that are impacting black people I do think that this moment that we're now is created in large part because nothing was going on I think that it's disingenuous to believe that somehow the platform they're afforded by playing basketball allows them. Them to further this cause and I understand that it's been going on for a long time, and it won't end just because they don't play basketball, but I do think we're in a unique moment, and I'm not sure that we can just dismiss them. Saying not playing could kind of start us down this this path of returning to life normal whatever that is right now. We're in a unique period. I don't think anyone has ever felt. Is Moment right now? We start returning things that we are accustomed to be a basketball or other sports or movie theater star opening up, people will be distracted. Not Everyone has the capability that you think. The wife folks that you afraid angle pay attention to outside more not going to be dissuaded by the return of the NBA. That's just my guess. I could be wrong. I could draw democratic conclusions that are not correct I'm just you right now? Is? They were dissuaded easily by the fact that people are playing basketball games. You never had no hope or chance with those people in the first place. I'm not buying this at all and I. Think Honestly. Are you sure that when these guys say that about attention that they're talking about the people that you're talking about right now? Because I don't think those are the people that they're talking. Talking about, and it's hard for me to not take it as offensive when I hear from anybody on this issue, who seems to believe that somehow wants to black folks. Get basketball back. That's all we can focus all minds on. They keep putting out rat music and I can listen to. That is still pay attention to what's going on in the streets now. I'm not buying this. Yeah, I! I think you and I are talking about different types of white people. Honestly I think it's about the liberal white people who find themselves right now with not much to do other than to advocate or this 'cause. I think when there are other. Other things happening particularly and maybe it's because I'm gonNA. sportscenter world, and the last couple of weeks I've been incredible. Frankly, we've talked about these issues directly. Not even how they relate to sports necessarily on this network once they start playing basketball games. We're going to say OH. They're wearing t-shirts. Oh, they took a knee. Now let's watch Lebron dump like that's what's GonNa Happen. Maybe it won't happen for the rest of the world, but this small little pocket of the world that is sports and this network, and all the people who watch this network and enjoy sports. That's what we're GONNA talk about. We're no longer going to talk about the. The issues that are going on other than pay lip service to whatever demonstration or gestures that they do, and if they spend their post game interview, two hours of monologue about injustice where to clip out the couple of Pasta. They talked about how close out the game and that's what we're going to show US network, and that's what we're going to talk about. It's fair I. Don't think that we can argue that that's not going to happen. And if we could just forget that his guy into white, saying it, I think people might give us some more credence if it was other players who people have a different level.

"What's irrefutable from my standpoint? Is that if we had if we had basketball over the last few weeks would be spending a lot more time talking about that that we have on this network amongst us talking about player activism. He's actually correct where he lost me, and I think where he's going to. To lose, some of the players is reportedly said well twenty players make all the money. ANYWAYS and they're trying to divide us. That's the issue right because. Austin rivers is correct in pointing out. A lot of players will not want to give up. Their pay will not want to risk the NBA ripping up the CBS and that's why I think we're still going to get basketball. Regardless of what other points are made now. We'll bring bringing Clinton Yates here. I think you should start maybe with Kyrie Irving. If you don't mind Clinton since Meka and blow attached to that yeah, I will start with carbon serving that last point that brought up is. What his larger statement was here. He's saying basically we could all be making a lot more money, and if you look at not just the social 'cause that's happened in terms of black lives matter become something that people actually think about, but also just think about who the players are. It's not just that there's a lot of black folks who happen to be players in the NBA. They're the top one percent of what they do. If this is the chance to rest, power back in any way for what they think, they should be worth. This is a smart thing worth considering. Considering especially if you're in that position, his career and so listen. There's a lot of jokes to be had about flatter and trust me I was making a lot of them, but he's making sense right now to think long-term on this actually commend him a little bit because something worth considering more largely than just this season in this tournament that's addressing it from a player's right perspective, but White Howard. Then he means no words talking about this would be bigger for my people than championship for myself, and then saying no basketball until we get things resolved. How did you read Beckley? I mean that is again what we're talking about. oftentimes and black folks are in positions where they are asked or asking for something is considered. Take what you can get and then go there but listen. HOW DID NASCAR into pulling their confederate flags down because Bubba Wallis? Asking for the right to be able to protest, simply kind of threw it in. He said that'd be great if they did that, too, and they did it and that was amazing you have to. To ask you to be able to visualize at the top level if we're even going to be able to consider making any sort of change, so I don't mind from a discussion, stand point even as it doesn't relate to the playoffs right now. They gotta get thinking like that. If that's something that they feel is important to them long-term Pablo I know, you said this message maybe received differently if it wasn't coming from Kyrie Irving and white Howard because of. Maybe, the perception fans and everybody has of those two guys throughout their career. In the way they play basketball, but specifically on Howard saying no basketball until we get things resolved. How did that strike you? Yeah that seems way more extreme than I think the average player perspective and talking to people around the league. I think it's worth noting that the faction that Kyri Dwight Represent Kyri also said I'm willing to give up everything that is the smallest of all of the factions that have questions about what is the restart of the NBA going GonNa look like here's the easy out Tony Right. Because you're allowed to have those opinions. Those opinions in some sense are actually. Actually quite virtuous. The easy out is everybody's going to make the decision for themselves. They're going to decide. Is the cost less or greater than the benefit, and if those two guys want out, that's totally cool. It's also totally fine for people who want to use the platform of the league to do it their way like Lebron. That will also be fine you if those two guys won out, can you see an NBA players sit out? This shortened season and postseason. Out of protest. I can simply because Dwight Howard and Kyrie Irving. Kyri of course is not playing anyway, but the White Howard is put himself out there and said yes, this is incredibly real to me. I did not think that beforehand. Simply because follow the money Tony and everybody wants to get paid of course, but if Dwight feels this way, I can certainly see him living up to those words Miyakawa, can you? I can I. Don't think it'll stop basketball from especially as we're not talking about the stars. The same conversation we had about what if a player test positive? How will affect how we see this season? It really only matters if it's one of the stars or a player on a really competitive playoff.

"Brings the old man in his own attic episode eighty beautiful. Day by the way we'll in DC beautiful day in DC let us start with the NBA. Okay over the weekend. The NBA players. Union they spent the entire weekend talking about how to go forward about one hundred players WANNA conference call, and they heard Kyrie irving say to them. Don't play, so the players are now trying to decide whether to restart the season or work for social reforms. Instead will on. What do you make of where the NBA stands right now? Tony so much to cover here attracted to his quickly there two different dynamics at play here one is the bubble and concern. People might have over that over the corona virus. Can they be kept safe? HOW LEGITIMATE IS THE PLAN FOR THE BUBBLE? Do they feel that that's adequate? There's issue and then there's the issue of whether or not people should be playing because of the protests in the aftermath of George Floyd and let me say this if you've. You've got concerns about Corona virus I understand that people will have concerns some guy's voice that but for Kyrie Irving and Dwight. Howard, to say we don't WanNa work because we want to pay attention. That's your platform, gentlemen, you're not. You're not college professors. You're not musicians. You're not the heads of industry of Science and technology. Everybody has a platform at a certain level. You are elite skilled athletes with an enormous platform. Use It if you don't use. Use It. That would be shameful and irresponsible. Use It. You got microphone every day. Pick up the MIC and open your mouth. You can continue the dialogue. Charles Barkley said it best more on. Get up when he said. What are they talking about Outta sight outta mind. What are you? What are you saying your before? The public on one of the two great international sports stages in the world, soccer and basketball. So, what are you saying? We don't WANNA. WanNa play. This is what you do to a whole people captive. You've got to be that SMART, and if you're not that smart people surrounding you, who are that smart I know Austin rivers and others get it and so Tony I. I must think there's still going to be a season GonNA play corona virus issues the bubble. That's over here I, understand it. We just don't WanNA play because we don't want to distract attention. What that's insane reasoning. Yeah so I agree with virtually everything that you've said I expected the players to play. I thought they. Wanted to play now. I'm an old white man, so it's likely I don't see the world in the same way that young black men see it, so I could be completely nazeer here, but I. Will you mention Barclay I? will quote Charles Barkley Right now. We said I have no idea what Kyri and Dwight Howard a talking about, but it would be a catastrophic mistake not to play I. I would like to hear from Lebron James. Who I have not heard from I'd like to hear from him because I've always assumed that he was the number one voice in basketball to echo what you said. Without saying that anything was wrong about working on justice for all people and social reforms. This platform that you might have four months. You are able to get people into. Listen to you if you don't use the ability to play I would think that that dissipates, and you'd only be heard in an echo chamber rather than from everybody I think you and I are in a court on that, plus there's this other part that if you don't play. I'm not saying it would happen, but I believe the owners have the right to. To rip up the CBA an awful lot of money lost so I. Guess My what I'm saying. I know what I'm saying. I'm surprised by this, but the events leading out of the last two weeks I don't know where they're going. The events changed the World Tony. And they made people introspective and is good for those guys to be thinking on a deeper level. Then maybe you know guys in their early twenties mid-twenties art custom to, but here's the other problem you start giving back money. You start leaving money on the table. Table. This is a very practical element. Let me just let me say directly to Kyri Dwight Howard. If you guys too young and you've have money all your lives. You don't get the ask. Your.

"It's healthy living for less. In here's the argument that Kyri and or Dwight could make. That would be compelling like a lot of things have changed since we saw NBA on March eleventh when NBA suspended the season on March eleventh, it signaled that we will under precipice of something really bad and not even a hint at the disaster. It's been since then we just knew. Wow, this is serious, and that's why like as I've mentioned a lot here I think a return games. This return to normalcy is ultimately a bad thing. We're still in the middle of a pandemic. We'll still going through this like we're not even through the first wave like there's no second wave. We're still through the first wave and so. So just how the NBA signal that this was something to be reckoned with back in March when it suspended the League, returning to the court signals something else that we're pushing. Past would like a national tragedy in. That's Kyri. Dwight could say covert is disproportionately affecting black people black, and Brown people in this country. We don't WanNA. Play in the middle of a pen and we don't want to give people the idea that it's okay to continue in the middle of this. We want to do something else. That is a great argument with Correa's. In the wider arguing as well, people need to focus on social justice I. Mean That's just not quite as compelling, nor is it like sensical? Well Y- I mean I think the question then is like what's the endpoint and what's the? End Game I mean. We're GONNA talk in our next segment about the players at the University of Texas and I. Don't WanNa like. Step on our conversation there, but there's a specific list of things that's being asked for their and the question would be. What are the markers head to get basketball back again? If you're not gonNA play now if things are not. Okay now. Like what is the set of demands, or what is the set of requests and that is something that's not clear her and I think it would be really hard to. Make clear I think you know. Not to be too depressing, but like you know systemic racism isn't GonNA end like. Next month or next year two years from now. If. That's the goal here. We're never gonNA play basketball again so. You also have players like Donovan Mitchell who was on this call expressed I? Think reasonable concern, but self interested concern about are we GONNA? Our players, going to be at a higher injury risk after this long layoff, and then coming back and playing really intensive playoff style basketball, Mitchell is up for Max contract extension, and then you have players who are going to be concerned about their health because of Cova because of family members who are rest Joe Ingles. That's that's been an issue for him because of A. Child with a compromised immune system so. You have a lot of different players with a lot of potential reasons to be skeptical of this plan or to not WanNa play and I think you know as you alluded to all. When we were discussing this last week, all we saw was the like twenty eight to nothing. Play Rab vote which very clearly. Light at a lot of kind of difference of opinion that there was papered over, and so it's it's good at least now to see that there is a little bit more complexity, and there are a lot of different constituencies and arguments here. The were erased initial round of coverage. Yeah, I think that is important point to make because what if what this does, if anything, it pushes the players to be more aware if they're going to play and to come up with some sort of plan. Garrett temple not noted that look we are. We are wealthy black Americans and the difference in the economic gap between the White America and Black America is astronomical. That's a direct quote. I can't in good conscience. Tell my brethren to throw away millions of dollars in order to create change that I don't see the direct impact of if there was a direct impact of laws, changing that would be a different story, and I think what what players can do is use their economic power and use their ability to unite and come up with specific plans, proposals foundations efforts that they wanNA support and use that as use a megaphone of Orlando as a way to do that. I mean no matter what the NBA came up with there were going to be complications here because of the disease and the pandemic, and because of the differences in opinion among players. But there is a shitload of money at stake here, and that is not to be dismissed lightly. Either I mean if players don't play, then owners could cancel the collective bargaining agreement, which would then force. A renegotiation at a time when it would be extremely unfriendly. To players you're nobody in the universe wants to renegotiating a contract right now during a pandemic when revenues are down for everything so that I think. You know more than anything else as reason why this is not gonNa Happen, it would just be financially catastrophic for everyone involved not to sidetrack the conversation, but the Dwight Howard aspect of this is so interesting to me. Kyri I think we've gone through the Kyrenia of this and we should also note. Kyrie isn't playing this season. No matter what like he's out injured and so he. He's an odd spokesman for this. Because you know what what would he be giving up personally but the Dwight Howard. Howard thing like his career was in a total shambles. He comes back the Lakers. Everybody thinks it's GonNa be a bad idea and he's GonNa ruin the chemistry on that team and he won't be any good. It's gone way better than anyone could have possibly expect that he's been good for the team. Everybody's like the contribution that he's made. It's the chance for him to when a championship change the narrative about his career, and yet he comes out now is like I don't WanNa play. I find that very interesting is not in the like top three hundred people. I would have guessed what have come out with that kind of statement. Yeah, I mean I think that you mentioned it changing the narrative I mean. Not. Ben Really known for Social Justice Wall, right and I mean you know he kind of has a reputation for being duplicitous and insincere. and there's some other things that are probably should not allude to hear, but. You know things in Dwight Howard. Wikipedia page that would make you question you know sort of his commitment to. To be some sort of like you know social activists, or whatever so you know, I could see him thinking this is just a really low risk stance to make right here. We're going to play anyway and I could come often. Oh Man, you know what? I didn't want to do this I. started out the segment I said. I wasn't going to maligned their interest and I thought they were. And here we are by the end of it. I've already changed my mind, but is this. Yeah, you're right though I mean it's kind of hard to overstate journey to all right I'm opening my mind to new ideas here, right marketplace of ideas. Just you know Dwight Howard man. He's a different dude and I haven't heard him. Talk about anything like this. You know maybe maybe I've missed it. I'm sure you're the. He's given voice to something Oh. You know what he did. tweet once in support of Palestine are that now now that nothing and then you had to leave that tweet, so maybe this is him. You know tentatively putting his. You know his voice out there and seeing what people say. This is a low risk you know stance to. To make knowing that his teammate is going to make him play like he's on Lebron's team. They're going to be playing. So one of the most direct statements about whether NBA player should do. This was from Stephen. Jackson the former player and friend of George Floyd. Who's been a leading protests and taking a big role here? Let's play a little bit of what he said the other day. White owners have spoken up? None of them. None of my taking the stand. Yet in my post, a video when season start a San what we should do, but they ain't doing nothing. The Plan Basketball Angle dinner, but make them money. And take the attention of what we find for where we marching for. Is bigger than all of us and his big as as big as big as a game and I'm I'm sad that we still got explained that the people were sad I mean the the interesting point he makes their goal is that where are the owners and the players use planning to go against what even?.

"So, the Kyri call that. Basically. Set The sports world. Ablaze. Over the weekend. Here's the deal Kyri Dwight Howard. And issues me avery Bradley Carmelo, Anthony and allegedly Donovan Mitchell. Were the five players who spoke vocally against restarting the season for different reasons Kyrie because of the. Racial Injustice And the protests. Dwight. At least initially is similarly that his agent has been since released another statement that says something different, not completely different, but just because of that and the combination of the pandemic and being around family. It's et Cetera et CETERA. that. He feels like it's more important to be there. Carmelo Anthony for safety and then Donovan Mitchell initially for safety, too, but he went on twitter when bleacher report tweeted it out and said Nah stop it. So I guess what really happened on. The call is the question. Well? Ed Davis, who plays for the Utah Jazz was one of the players on that call and Ed Davis spoke to Alex Kennedy of hoops. Hype and I'M GONNA. Tell you exactly what Ed Davis said. Okay Ed Davis said there were eighty guys on the call, and maybe ten who spoke of those who spoke it was probably fifty fifty only half said that we might need to take a stand, and that playing may not be the best idea. I'm ninety nine ninety nine point nine percent. Sure that will finish the season. He kept on by saying this added about Kyrie. It's easy for Kyri to say. He'll give everything back for social reform, but would he really give everything back? It's easy for Dwight Howard to say. We don't need to play when he's in Atlanta in his twenty million dollar mansion. That was Ed Davis of the Utah Jazz. So I WANNA have an open dialogue with with you guys here like. Let's have this open. We're going to open the phones. Eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, ESPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, ten, three, seven, seven six. Show according to Ed Davis. That's what happened on the call. Here's what I would say. If you're an NBA player. And you're looking at the idea of what's the best way to continue the unbelievably important conversation about racial equality. That's been going on. Well. All eyes are going to be on the NBA in about six weeks. The ratings are going to be through the roof. Far Bid for me. To speak for. Anyone. WHO's African American? But I can tell you as a minority. That I would believe that this would arguably be the best place. As far as a platform is concerned to continue to share this particular message. And again there are other concerns. As I mentioned injury concerns which we'll get to in a second. Safety, obviously non-competitive teams aren't thrilled about being their family. The lack of family there there are a lot of concern, but in regards to Kyrie's specific commentary on social reform. I would just say that Adam silver. And the NBA has been on believable in support of the players. They're not allies with the players. They are partners with the players unlike any other commissioner I've ever seen. And there's never been a moment since Adam. Silver has been commissioner at least to my knowledge that. He's felt like. Or it's felt like that. He has told the players know. You gotta pipe down on something. Particularly when it comes to. Social Justice. I mean. In this city. We know as well as any. The whole Donald Sterling situation. And Adam, silver's position on that and took unprecedented action in that particular case. Obviously they've been. Consistent messages. Of backing the players. As these instances, these heinous acts have continue to happen. The other thing. That I would add though. Beyond that? Is that..
