From wondery, I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday, February 16th. In the quest to emerge as the alpha figure in the pet supplies and services world, the biggest players are trying to fetch more customers, wherever they are. Last month, petco announced a pet project with Lowe's home improvement stores. The shop within a store concept will devote about 1% of Lowe's floor space to petco at select locations fortune reports. Shoppers can then pick up dog food, kitty litter and pet toys along with their paint chips and spackle. Some locations will even offer pet vaccinations, microchipping, and mobile grooming. The plan is to roll out about a dozen of these stores next month as part of a pilot program in Texas. North Carolina and South Carolina. Both home improvement stores and pet supply stores have enjoyed a boom during the pandemic. As people spent more time at home, they felt the need to spruce up their surroundings and because they were home more. They sought the companionship of dogs cats and other pets. One in 5 Americans got a pandemic pad according to the ASPCA. Instead of spending money on dining out and vacations, people diverted those funds to a new coat of paint and a cushy dog bed. The goal of the petco Lowe's partnership is to give shoppers more of the products they need in one place. Lowe's head of branding Marisa thalberg told USA Today that 60% of the people lose interviewed said they'd be more likely to shop at a home improvement retailer that also offered pet supplies. In addition, petco has also expanded its services by partnering with rover dot com, which offers pet sitting boarding and walking. Petko's chief rival PetSmart has been working hard to attract more customers too. The company is added veterinary services to more of its stores. The company also launched an online pharmacy last year. But perhaps its most strategic maneuver was its acquisition of Chewy dot com a popular pet products website several years ago. Consumers have been increasingly shopping for pet products online. Chewie dot com is a primary destination for them to do so. The company was spun off and had a successful IPO three years back. But petko's move into low stores gives both brick and mortar retailers some advantages. First, there's convenience. Folks who are nesting may pick up their pet supplies while they're making their weekend honeydew trips to Lowe's. Plus, even if home improvement spending returns to pre-pandemic levels as people get out more, their pandemic pets will still need food and other supplies. The American pet products association anticipate 6% growth in the sector this year, and these pet supply retailers are sniffing out every opportunity to win over those customers. But heated competition in greater convenience, may mean that the ultimate winner in these pet store wars are pet owners themselves. And those furry friends they love.

"The China Robinson we are talking to you about tonight's game three of the WWE finals, but I wanna start here really with the end. I mean, all of game, too, honestly, because you were there. You were there to watch the Phoenix mercury tie the Chicago sky after winning an overtime. Series is not one one. So I'll just see it up to you. What did you see? What was that like? Wow, Pablo, it was one of the most memorable moments I've had covering WNBA playoffs, WNBA finals. There were 14,000 screaming fans in the building. You can barely hear yourself think and stretches of the game. I'm sitting next to Sue bird, getting her analyst perspective on it. I mean, they really couldn't have been a better seat in the House. To Rossi in the corner finally hits her downtown. But wow, it just really impressed with Phoenix's fight. You know, this is a mercury team that on paper, very short handed for the WNBA finals. They lost key a nurse to an ACL. They just got Sophie Cunningham back in the lineup. And it's a team that I'm quite honestly has to rely on their big three heavily. And that's Diana tarazi, Brittany griner in Skylar diggin Smith. And I thought it was a family affair if you will. Everyone on that team did their part to get the victory in overtime. Starting with Britney grinders 29 points. I mean she's been the best player in the playoffs in my opinion. You know this, she's 6 9, she actually dunked last night, the first dunk in WNBA finals history. Karasi off the double. Eddie into the game for Cunningham. And throws it down. Brittany grider. With the final slam here in game two. But she's been fantastic. When the game was really on the line, Diana taurasi does what Dina tarazi does. She became a killer and put the game away. Yeah, I mean, Brittany griner, leading the team in scoring, dunking, Skyler digging Smith. She had the overtime layup to seal this thing. Here's digging Smith. Digging Smith across over the attack and the leg with a breakdown from Skyler diggins Smith hits a two possession game. But Diana tarazi just mentioned that China, I mean, you're sitting next to super who knows Diana as well as anybody Diana by some accounting is, you know, on the short list for greatest player of all time, what are you seeing from Diana right now as you know, she got off to a start that was slower because of this whole thing with, you know, oh yeah, right. Her partner just gave birth before game one. I think we're seeing the best of Diane tarazi to be honest Pablo. Yes, petty had just had a baby. Keeping in mind, they lost game one. They played game 5 of the semifinals on a Friday night. She takes a PJ home. Penny has the baby in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Phoenix doesn't even touch the floor as a team on Saturday. Sunday, the first time they're together all the floor is for the game. The game one against Chicago. So they felt like they had more to give. Once they had a little rest and some energy in the tank. So that was quite a stretch to kind of start these finals with, but Diana has also been nursing an ankle sprain slash broken bone in her in her foot. So she's got a lot going on. She's not at a 100%, and you can tell. There are definitely plays where you say, okay, 100% healthy Diana would have done this or that. And she's also 39 years old. However, there is not a more mentally tough player than tarazi. Again, when the game is on the line and when the moment is at his brightest, I mean, she had 14 points in fourth in the fourth quarter and overtime. And started over time with a four point play after nailing a three point bucket and getting fouled. I mean, there's just no other player in the world that you would really want the ball in their hands in these situations. I just have to ask the China because you're a sober minded analyst. You've played the game too. What is sitting next to sue during all of this like as she is watching her friend, go and do that? Well, first, who's funny because what you'll catch her doing is passing. She's sitting next to me, but you'll see her throw her hands out every once in a while, like she's passing the call. It is the funniest thing. I'm like, I'm jumping. Are you okay? But she thinks she's like literally in the minds of these players. She sees situations where she would be passing the ball and she's literally doing that physically sitting next to me. But her basketball knowledge is limitless. So yeah, I do think she rides the wave with Diana song. You know, that's her best friend. And they've been in this together for a very long time. But she's given us some insight into Diana's mentality at different points in these playoff that's been invaluable. What do you expecting then given all of this from game three? Oh, I expect Chicago to put on a show in game three. It's already sold out crowd. I'm just so impressed with Chicago's fans, how they've poured into wind trust arena and given their teams so much energy. The Candace Parker factor has been exactly what we thought it would be with her leadership and this team that has really no finals experience outside of her. It's a very talented and balanced team on paper. I mean, Kalia copper is a bona FIDE star. And corny van der sloot is playing some of the best basketball that we've maybe seen from a point guard in the history of this league. She had 20 points 14 assists. Wow. And every time that Phoenix made a run courting Vanguard answered, answer that run. And it was suburb that made that observation. You know, it takes one great point guard to recognize another one. But what she's doing for that team right now in a leadership position, even the bucket she scored in regulation to get them to over time. I mean, she's just been phenomenal. So I expect I expect Chicago to really have a great bounce back game. Yeah, yeah, wait, so China I hate to put you on the spot here, but who do you think wins this thing in the end? You know Pablo, I wish I had an answer for you. I'm gonna give you my canned analyst perspective right now. I don't know, and that's the absolute truth. You know, Phoenix is to me when they're clicking and they have healthy players on the floor. They're just such a well oiled machine on the offensive end. But Chicago you can say the same thing. I just believe it's gonna be the team that makes the fewest mistakes and I can't tell you right now who that's gonna be. But I do know that there will be plenty of big moments down the stretch, whether it's sky digging Smith, Britt griner, Kalia copper, Candace Parker, we're seeing the WNBA at his finest in this moment. And I am thoroughly thoroughly enjoying it. No, it's a showcase the China, not even before I knew that you and suburb are playing your own game on the sideline. So once again, as always, thank you so much for joining us. We need a Sue cam Pablo, so talk to ESPN about that. We need a Sue cam. Absolutely. And zoo, that's a buddy cop movie that we got to invest in. Thanks for having me Pablo. I'm Pablo Torre, and this has been ESPN daily. Our show is produced by Alexander hyacinth, Mike Johns, Steve Martine, Ryan and tell Mike philbrick and eve troe, Chris tomino, and Aaron Vail. Special thanks this week to Garret Lang, Andres Soto, Julia Faust, Christian Gardner, max brodski, and Jackson agile. I'll talk to you.

"Do some experimenting. This year, they're just trying to win. So, before I let you go here, Zach, you are obsessive about league pass. You have these rankings. There are a bunch of teams obviously we did not mention in this conversation due to time and due to restraints on my sanity. Who do you want to shout out as a team that our listeners need to go and watch? Well, Charlotte is the obvious answer. We're all excited about Charlotte, miles bridges, he's going to humiliate someone with a dunk so badly that that person is going to retire on the spot. They're going to run a lot, they have lamelo, they're going to play zone. So that's the obvious one. Let me try and give you a couple like non obvious ones. I think the grizzlies Ja Morant is a show. That dude is a show. He is out for blood when he tries to dunk on people. He's the guy that his teammates love to play with because he's unselfish in terms of both getting off the ball and passing. I think he's wonderful to watch. Wait, exactly. Let me ask you this because I feel like it's contractually obligated for me to do this with you at this point. I have to ask where the knick slot into all of this man. I think the Knicks I'm optimistic about the next, I think the next are gonna be good. I mentioned how the top 6 in the east is really, really good, and that means getting out of the play in for everybody who's not in that group is gonna be tough. If you assume one of those top 6, let's call it Philly. Falls out of the top 6 due to certain circumstances. Does you have to pick like, okay, who do you think is the team most likely to break in from the bottom and escape the plan? I'm taking the Knicks by an air over the bulls. I think the Knicks qualitatively are gonna be really good. They're not really good, just good. Zach.

"So Zach, I want to look at the teams you have at the very top of the west and it seems like the one at the very top should be obvious, but I want to get to what's not obvious about the Lakers and LeBron and Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook and Carmelo, et cetera. What are people not getting about this team that sticks out to you do you think? I think people get it. As soon as they got Russ, everybody understood the questions were number one. What is he doing to be of use when LeBron has the ball? Number two, are they going to play Anthony Davis at center more? Because they're shooting just took a big hit. And number three, who are the other two players in that Anthony Davis at center lineup, can any of the shooters play defense? Can any of the defenders shoot? The injuries they've already suffered to Trevor ariza and Taylor Horton Tucker are a big, big deal in terms of building out those lineups. Those are probably the two best defensive players among that group of sort of secondary wing guys that could fill out those lineups. And they're both already injured, tele Horton Tucker is the most important young player on their team. He's only 20. So those injuries are a big deal and they have not looked good in the preseason that may or may not mean anything. I'm not sure even what I am about the Lakers. I'm mildly optimistic, I guess, maybe, but they may have more work to figure out than I thought because you tend to get caught up in all this noise. And you're like, wait, they have LeBron and Anthony Davis. That solves all the noise. If those guys are healthy, all the noise doesn't even matter. Hold on a second, because LeBron James now. The guy who is resenting Kevin Durant, Giannis, being the best player in the world. Hashtag wash king, hashtag washed king Zack. Do you expect LeBron to care about this regular season in a way that we have not seen LeBron care about a regular season in a while now? He cares about the regular season in different ways almost every season. I think he's tried to get MVP before his last not before every year. His last year in Cleveland, he played all 82 games specifically, I think, in part, at least to try to get MVP. He likes to play. Obviously, he's going to save the a plus effort on defense and everything. And the post ups that take a lot. He's going to save that for the playoffs, but I do think he seems in his public comments to be excited as a problem solver as a chess master to be excited by everyone saying, oh, the spacing, you know, what's Russ going to be doing? How are you going to make that work? When I decided to go to Miami, the first thing they said was LeBron and D wade don't mix. There's no way they could play together. They two bought dominant. We know what happened with that. You know, you make it work. You figure it out. I know what Russ brings to the table. You know what I bring to the table? And when you got a unicorn like AD, you know, he fits into anything. And maybe that all those concerns end up being proven correct. I think a lot of them will end up being proven correct, but he's itching at the chance to say, you guys know who I am. I see you guys are watching on TV and think you understand what's going on. I see ten steps ahead of all of you. I see it all. I see all the picture I see all possible outcomes for every possession in my head at all times. I'll figure it out. You know, he's Doctor Strange seeing 14 million possibilities. The most important overarching story in the west is that Jamal Murray is injured and Kawhi Leonard is injured. And if we're talking about well, the Lakers are probably the favorite in the west and we have all these caveats about their team. I think it should be stated up front. To me, if everyone were healthy, I think the clippers and the nuggets would be my number one and two in the west in some order. Wow, wow. Okay, wait, so without the nuggets without the clippers because of those injuries that you mentioned, who is number two in the west to you? Is it the sun's because, hey, they made the finals and they're good. What are we not getting there? The suns are good. And they did make the finals. Those are accurate statements. I still think I would lean Utah just because of the continuity and the depth. And yes, they did not get as far as the suns did in the playoffs last year, so the sun set a quote unquote better season and the way the jazz got humiliated on their home floor by the clippers blowing a giant lead and it was like a 50 point swing in game 6 of that series. While the all time great comebacks in NBA playoff history down 25 in the second half and the LA clippers will win their fourth straight game in the series totally embarrassing. I don't even want to hear about the injuries injured as an embarrassing loss for the jazz. I just think what they did in the regular season was so powerful and such a statement in terms of just one of the greatest victory margins of all time. One of the greatest offensive net rating, one of the greatest net ratings of all time, all that stuff, I think you have to give them the benefit of the doubt. So that benefit of the doubt, though, does that extend beyond the regular season? Because we're picking standings here, but then the postseason starts and then how does your mindset shift? No, does not extend beyond the regular. The jazz take it as a compliment, like two years ago I said or wrote, I can't remember which, like, I'm done being like amazed by James Harden, putting up 55 in Charlotte in the regular season. I don't care anymore. I get it. You're amazing. Show me what you do when the chips are down in an elimination game in the playoffs. That's all I care about anymore. Utah, oh my God, your margin of victory. Oh, look at how look at how Rudy Gobert is like, they don't allow any threes or shots at the rim because their defense is so sound because of Rudy Gobert. Look at their stats for 50 games. I don't care anymore. I don't care. It's very nice. Is all that stuff is very cute. All that matters now is, hey, the Conference Finals started. Are you in it? Or did you lose again in a way that makes you disappointed about yourselves? It's not just the point of being foisted from the outside. It's not unfair criticism. They leave the playoffs every year internally thinking we lost earlier than we should have, or we lost in a way that is dispiriting, even if we lost to a team that was as good or better than us like the warriors a few years ago, the rockets two years ago, we feel like we failed to show up at our peak selves. So that's what I want to see. Did you show up as your peak selves? Are you in the Conference Finals? That's all that matters now. So the guy who used to get that knock of course all the time was Chris Paul. And I just want to hit the sun's real quick here, Zach, because Chris Paul seems to have gotten over that. He makes the MBA finals. It seems like that idea of him is dead and gone. What is the ceiling on this sun's team to you? Feeling on the sun seems to make the finals again. I'm not going to pick them to make the finals. I would not, but you're talking about their ceiling. I don't think they could beat the healthy nets or box in the finals, but I don't look at anyone as presently constructed right now in the west and say the suns can't beat that team four out of 7 in the playoffs. Again, I won't pick them to make the finals. There are teams I would pick over them, but ceiling is for sure finals. So then this brings me to the warrior Zack. And I don't know if there's a bigger variance among opinions on how good a team could be than the Golden State Warriors. A version of the warriors that is gonna get Klay Thompson back when do they say? Christmas has been thrown out in the media, maybe before maybe after. I'm just ball parking late December and hoping for the best. I'm hoping it's like December 10th and he's coming out of the tunnel there he is. So what does a version of this warriors team with Andrew Wiggins vaccinated and Klay Thompson coming out of the tunnel there he is around wintertime? What are we getting here? I'm less concerned with wintertime than springtime. I think they need to be able to hold the fort as clay is out and then as clay comes back and works off two years worth of rust. Two years worth of two of the most devastating injuries in sports. He's not going to come back and start dropping 25 every single game. Maybe you will, 'cause he's clay and just unbelievable, but I doubt it, if they can get out of the play in and be in the top 6 with two or three weeks left in the season and start getting their groove going. I think they can be a really dangerous team. I think their ceiling is finals too. And it's less likely because they have a lot more questions to answer, but there's a version of this team at Steph and draymond clay are healthy by whatever Sanders clay can be healthy this year. That is really, really good. And I think part of it is they spent last year trying to do two things at once. We're going to try to try and win, but we're also going to try to develop our young guys and.

"Lob pass in NBA history considering the circumstances and having Yanis throw it down. Booker the drive. Phoenix has to foul ball throws it down. So you just described one of the most audacious plays in NBA history Zach. I am still haunted by I think the opposite, which brings up Ben Simmons, which brings up the fact that you're wearing a sixers cap in front of me right now on this call, which is offensive to be honest. And I have to ask you what you think these sixers look like if Ben Simmons is not in their lineup. How good can this team be? Are they the third best team in this conference? What are they to you without him? I think they're at grave risk of being in the play internment in the east because I think the top 6 in the east, which includes Philadelphia in theory at least is really, really strong. And it's not hard to fall out of that if one or two bad things befall your team. And we're obviously talking about a very bad thing but following your team. And you can talk to you about tyrese Maxie. I'm excited about tyrese Maxie. He stepped up when they needed them in the playoffs in particular in game 6. I think it was against Atlanta. Sheik Milton's like, seems exciting. I like the idea of shake milk every 5th game that version of shake Milton appears. You're like, oh, that's shake Milton, and then he like falls out of the rotation for four games. Machi style is solid, the Springer kid they drafted is interesting. Like all those names are interesting. The thing with interesting young guys is our brains tend to remember that one out of every 5th game when they showed all their potential for 8 consecutive minutes and not the other four when they were like young guys struggling in the NBA. You can criticize Ben Simmons for everything he isn't as a player. What he is is a really good consistent defensive player, like one of the best in the league and just a really good all around player who generates threes for them and to go from that to a zero for the roster spot and then replacing it with a bunch of unproven guys. I think that's a bigger hit than some people are realizing it's gonna be for Philly. So when you evaluate the sixers, are you seeing this through the lens of there's going to be a part replacing Ben and they will be X Y or Z, are you expecting Daryl to swing something? I'm expected her to be a trade because I just sink there has to be. I don't think there is any other solution. I mean, Ben Simmons is back. Let's be optimistic and assume he plays. Let's. Let's be even more optimistic and assume he plays well and the team is pretty good. I still think it's too far gone for there to be the real kumbaya reunion let bygones be bygones where a contender again, you know what, I do want to play with Joel embiid. You know what, this is the place for me. I just don't see that is happening. So you've been doing a Matata died in the press conference after game 7 ago. So I think eventually there will be a trade and the sixers Daryl morey will have to decide at some point and maybe it depends on how the season is going maybe it doesn't are we really gonna hold out for the home run swing. Are we prepared to spend the whole season holding out for the home run swing? And I should probably shouldn't use the term holding out, considering what it implies on the other hand. But or if there's a B deal, a B minus deal, that's like pretty good. It's not Damien Lillard. It's not Bradley Beal. It's pretty good. Helps our team now helps our team later, do you do that deal? And I think at some point they will face that decision. But a trade is going to happen now later, I just don't know when. So before we move on to a team that's actually like a stable universe of particles and not the chaos theory of the sixers Zach, what do the sixers have in front of them in terms of opportunity here? Realistically, because we've described a world in which the nets in the books are ahead of them. I feel like all in is the only way to go, but if you're going all in with this team, what is the ceiling on it? That's what hurts because the nets in theory with a full season of those three guys got better. The nets may be with just a full season of hardened and Durant, got better. The bucks by virtue of exercising the demons, they're better. The sixers at best kind of stayed the same except their second best player doesn't want to be there. That seems kind of bad. And that seems like the very, very, very best version of your season is the second round of the playoffs. It's game four at home. We're down two one to the bucks for the nets. We're within 5 in the fourth quarter, the crowd's going crazy and they just went out of ten O run in our seasons, basically over. Yeah, yeah, yeah, thanks. Thanks, Zach. I appreciate being preemptively haunted on October 15th at this point. But the team that haunted me at the end of last season, of course, was the Atlanta Hawks and I'm wondering Zack, when you're going and doing the power rankings here, nets, bucks, sixers, massive question mark, who is that team after? Is it the hawks? Is it someone else? The hawks are my pick to finish third in the east in the regular season. I think the hawks are legit. I don't really even understand why people think that they were a fluke last year. Now did they get further than expected? Absolutely, but I don't know why maybe it's because the players are not big no one names, but the hawks did what they did at like 75% health, the entire time. They had key players injured all season, including in the playoffs, including in the sixer series, most of their players are young and should keep getting better. Their team makes sense on paper and the same thing I said about the bucks about like, oh yeah, we were this good, we accomplished this. We showed up and did the dirty work when it mattered. The same applies to them. Now, I think the hawks will be better this year than they were last year. That doesn't mean they'll get as far in the playoffs. That's the thing that people need to get their heads around. They can be a better team and lose one round earlier, which I think is actually their most likely outcome, but they're my pick for number three in the east. So what Trae Young is at this point Zack and I am a person, by the way, who has gotten tweets from Trey young's dad Rey rightfully so just killing me for saying that Ben Simmons and Matisse table would put Trae Young in a cargo pocket and zip it shut. That didn't exactly happen in the playoffs. I must admit apologies to Rae young. But what is he realistically to you? After what we saw him do, which is own the postseason at times. He is an absolute offensive superstar, and he was that for all of last season. I think the question people had was, how is this going to hold up defensively in the playoffs? He's a bottom, whatever defender in the NBA. He's one of the weakest defenders in the NBA. And we've seen how hard it is to hide a guy like that in the playoffs in the wrong matchup, they just didn't run into that kind of matchup. The Knicks were a perfect matchup for them in that regard because they just didn't they were just not equipped to attack him in that way. Nor were.

"lowes" Discussed on ESPN Daily

"Depending on what team you root for, this NBA off season has kind of felt like being attacked by very angry insects with a swarm of headlines that can make you want to go jump into a river. But real games begin on Tuesday night, and for all the questions we still need answered. The upshot now is that the list of plausible contenders is deep. Deeper than you may have thought. So today, we mind the brain of Zach Lowe to determine who should finish a top each conference. And then we make a beeline to a thrilling WNBA finals. Where the buzz is around two all time grades who are vying for one more title. I'm Pablo Torre, it's Friday, October 15th. This is ESPN daily. Zack, I just want to talk to you about JR Smith and bees. It is a world a dimension that is far friendlier, far more whimsical. I miss NBA stories being as easy to digest as that one, but instead, we live in a world where I get an alert at 11 something p.m. on a Wednesday night and it says Kyrie Irving is live on Instagram. And I'm wondering what your reaction was when you got that alert. I was on my couch watching crunch time of the WNBA finals game two. Yes. Which features maybe my all time favorite basketball player in Diana taurasi. And I was struck by a professional obligation that I should even though I am not an Instagram user. I should try to find a way to figure out what was going on on Instagram Live. And I saw a couple of tweets transcribing his comments. Nobody's gonna take the power away from me that I have for speaking on these things, you know? And don't believe that I'm retiring, don't believe that, you know, I'm gonna give up this game for a vaccine mandate or stay in unvaccinated. Don't believe any of that. And I just made the decision. I'm out. For this, I'm watching a WNBA finals if necessary I will catch up later. I can not tell you how wise a decision that was. I think I have the gist of what was said and that's good enough for me and the game was awesome and Brittany griner was awesome and it's one one and so that was my primary takeaway. I mean, look, this story will evolve as it evolves. It is out of my control public. I can't do anything about it. But here is what you can do for us. 'cause you talk to GM's all the times, Zach, you do this in the run up to the tip off of the regular season, especially. You can tell us how good the nets will actually be without Kyrie Irving. How good is this team really? They can win the championship. I mean, they have James Harden. If you just pretended that they'd never had Kyrie Irving, and you just sort of imagined a team with James Harden and Kevin Durant and role players who fit them really well, you would be like, oh, that team is awesome, but I really would like to see that team play basketball I probably gonna win 55 games and get ten for the championship. And I think with Kyrie, they were clear favorites to win the title. Clear overwhelming, not close without him, I think they're probably co ish favorites with the bucks and obviously their margin for error injury is down to basically zero. I think at some point he'll get vaccinated and they will return to being overwhelming favorites, but I think it's now them Milwaukee and 'cause it's not just losing like we imagine this team imagine if they just had hardened and Durant. In what was Kyrie Irving's wrestlers, but that team would have like role players who could help them. Now that wrestlers might as a zero. So it does affect them. So I want to get your take on the Kevin Durant end of things here, simply as there is this conversation now that seems to indicate that Kevin Durant is the best player on the planet is it that simple to use Zach? You know, I think coming off of last year's playoffs when Giannis dubbed him the best player on the planet and he almost single handedly beat the team that ended up winning the championship. And had just one majestic two way game after another was just a scoring, it was the manner of scoring all the different ways he was doing it to defense the rebounding, the passing. I do think Giannis is going to make a run at it. I think the guy in LA every time we count him out of these discussions, is like leading the MVP race in January and February, so I'd be very careful just excluding him from this. But I think Kevin Durant walks into this season as not a consensus number one player because there's never consensus on this as long as LeBron is in the league, but I think if you pulled 30 GMs, I would guess 18 to 20 would vote Katie as the best player. Yeah, okay, so Yanis then. Zack, I'm watching the preseason and I'm watching the bucks and I'm seeing Yanis pull up behind the three point line and drain threes. And I'm wondering if that version of Yanis is a version of Giannis that you expect to see when actual real game start. I feel like we've had this conversation, not you and I, but NBA cognoscenti, like every 27th Milwaukee game, he'll walk up and hit a bunch of people. Oh, wow. Imagine if. Oh my God. And he has gotten to be a better three point shooter. Maybe there will be a day where that's actually a shot that convinces defenders like, oh, I gotta run him off the line. And then it really is all over. I just am not as interested in that as I am in the floaters, the jump hooks that getting to his spots, all the stuff that he started to show more comfort with the last three rounds of the playoffs, all this stuff that's like, oh, you put Deandre ayton on me? I'll solve that in a game and a half. Jay Crowder you're on me, you got no shot. Oh, I got a switch. I have a point guard on me in the post. This is way easier for me now than it was to seasons ago 'cause my foot works better. I have more options. You send help from here. I know what to do. You send help from there, I know what to do. I have more shots in my bag. That's the kind of stuff that is more interesting to me. So in terms of what's most interesting to you from their post use and run where they win the title last year, even beyond Yanis, though. What did you learn about this team that you didn't know that now informs how good you think they're going to be now? Number one was finally after years of resisting it, they leaned into diversifying their defense and say, we just can't play the same way. The other thing is, to me, the half court offense has always been their biggest question for all the focus on their defense. It was their half court offense that melted down against Toronto in 2019. It was their half court offense that couldn't do anything against Miami when they got embarrassed in the bubble. And it was their half court offense that 5 games into that Brooklyn series was about to get Mike budenholzer fired because it was completely malfunctioning, malfunctioning is not a word. It was completely malfunctioning. And they sort of turned it around to some degree. They definitely discovered something about like what the hierarchy of ball handling and skill set should be and that revolves around how Giannis plays and how Chris Middleton and drew holiday playoff of him. So they discovered something about that ecosystem and how it should look. But I think they discovered like just enough to eat by a wounded nets team just enough to eat by or maybe not eat 'cause Yanis was stray young, but get by a hawks team that frankly was ahead of schedule and get by his son's team that really no one expected to be in the finals before the season, but that's the area where I think they still have a lot of room to grow. Not only that, it sounds weird to say about a champion. They might have to grow significantly in that area to repeat as champion repeating is really hard and the competition is really good, particularly Brooklyn. Yeah, I mean, Zach, the drew holiday thing. I mean, what he did in the postseason defensively and then him going immediately and winning a gold medal and all of that in Tokyo. How do you take stock of what drew holiday means to this team now as the third piece of what has grown into an actual big three in Milwaukee? He's one of the ten best defensive players in the NBA and has been for quite some time. And he just sort of found his way to be the second side pick and roll option to become the primary ball handler when teams tried to put bad defensive players on him. And then to defend like all hell, he's just a really good basketball player who, you know, we've all knowing he's good for this long, but playing for a champion raises your profile. And obviously, one of the two iconic plays are those finals was him stripping Devin Booker and then throwing the most audacious.

Traders are betting on a chip rep when this report across the tape. Don't go anywhere fast monies back into welcome back to fast twenty alibaba breaking out today. The sock jumping nearly four percent even as a chinatown crackdown shows. No signs of leading up Ten flag the move. So what's your take on this one. Well i think you've got a case where you know first of all on the charts. You could take alibaba to probably to ten to fifteen and we're still on a downtrend. I don't think that the chinese government is going to let up. I do think though A message has been sent both not just in the investment community but to some of the biggest digital and tech player in china and we see the fines paid and we actually see Alibaba guy eighty five billion in cash in bound. She'd probably getting ready to make another payment. I think you've changed the discount rate for how you analyse these companies in other words you raise the risk factor. You've lowered your your share prices. I think there's been downgrades galore and the absence of more news. I think these these shares can probably trade near the high end of the ranches. I've said before. I've seen this so many times over the years in emerging markets. What's different about this for me. And china is that. Historically china proven. They've gone out of their way. Not only to benefit their national champion companies but to show that their markets are wide open and while they haven't necessarily totally reverse field on this They clearly had made a heavier hand on this one so i would still be cautious on this rally karen. What's the status of your position out ahead. The expired august fifteenth ed Try to sort of. Take it off my screen. I have the saying. You don't need to make it back where he lost it. So i'm not really inclined to go back and just you know enough money to be janelle position amount crossing. Yeah this looks like a tremendous buying opportunity if you look at the chart alone. But tim's point. I actually hit up. That trend line Right when we started the segment and the price to give back to is two. Oh six so. It implies a twenty percent bounds from where we are. Now into tim's point can still be in a dour line and anything can happen tomorrow morning with a new headline out of china. So you have to be really quick at the switch and realize you're risking a lot to the downside is well guy earlier you're talking about this wave of etf investing in here. We are alibaba. One of the most valuable chinese tech stocks in the world heavily heavy-weighting in many etf. So you got to be really careful about what you own no dan. We've said that for quite some time. And we've said since. Halloween boo by the way which is my want to say that a series of lower lows and lower highs than we've been cautious cautious cautious until august twenty third. And i remember the day we were sitting next to each other. And i said look finally yet. Capitulation stock traded on at one fifty to eighty low of the set. Lowes we've seen in quite some time reverse close ironed a day. I'm big volume and we said collectively that that was your tell and this stock could probably trade up to levels that stephen. Tim just talked about. And i'll stand by that. I think you absolutely could see the stocks still on a downtrend trade up to two zero five all right coming up. We've got.

That is the communications piece that i think even in my earliest days. I didn't know that. That's what i wanted to do back to your first question. But that's when work is just at its most joyful for me agreed. It's so fun things that you get to plan and it's not it's i try and look at it as the entire experience.

There's a continuous cycle of new innovative ideas. So how do you keep yourself. Inspired to keep thinking of these out of the box ideas. Well i don't feel that they're all my personal responsibility. Of course it's it's exciting. When you're the one that connects the dots. But i think what. I appreciate just as much now as a leader is when you've when you've inspired that energy and that desire and ability to connect the dots and others so that ideas like this can come from all different places that's at least as magical for me and i feel like i've watched that happen in the teams. I've led over the past many years of my career. And i'm seeing that happen now lows and it's it's amazing but you have to show people the idea and you have to push them to think beyond the traditional what. I don't think everyone always appreciates because as you noted i mean i work in a large corporations user businesses. They have financial expectations attached to them. And so i'm very very mindful of creativity not being gratuitous but creativity that serving a goal but the creativity comes in achieving that goal in the unexpected ways that surprise delight and get people's attention because we all know the hardest thing today for any of us who are in any form of the call of the communications business is getting attention because our attention is so fragmented. So that's i guess a long winded way of saying. Sometimes i just come up with ideas but now it's that ideas can come from anywhere on my team and then the real question is not. Do we have good ideas that had to put them through the right filters of is this the right time for that idea just to deliver on the goals that we have. Is it achievable. Is it going. Have the impact.

Why Square Stock Dropped Today

"Came in solidly higher-than-expected shares of square though are down seven percent this morning. Because growth is slowing. There's always a lot to get to with square so when you look at all the numbers. Tell me what stood out to you. Yes for me. I really focused. When i swear on really their burgeoning business which you know is the cash shop. It's funny you mentioned the war on cash and they have this kind of conveniently named cash app so it was really some of the numbers that the shop drew in the quarter and for that matter the fiscal year one of them is one hundred sixty two percent. Increase your ear. Gross profit of the cash up In a lot of that is being fueled by new users and specifically cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. So i think one number is not in throughout the entire twenty twenty fiscal year over three million people transacted bitcoin in some regard which was a two hundred fifty percent increase in volume compared to fiscal year. Nineteen and then they also even gave some gave some information on january twenty twenty one st year with over one million new buyers of bitcoin so really just interesting kind of figures throughout the entire report. Kind of the bitcoin. Being such an important part of that cash app is what really stood out to me. Yeah and that was certainly part of the headline squares square announcing it had purchased one hundred seventy million dollars worth of bitcoin during the quarter so cash app is squares version of ven. Mo- it's interesting to see the reaction from the start because on the one hand. This is a stock. Even factoring in the drop today. The stock is up almost two hundred percent in the past year so i understand particularly traders on wall street with a shorter term mentality saying alright. It's been a good year. Let's let's take a little money off the table. That sort of thing on the other hand. I don't know the overall market cap of square is just over one hundred billion dollars. It seems like a business with a lot of room to run. And i was listening to some of the comments the. Cfo made around what they are. Seeing it square in terms of how sticky the cash app is in terms of the other parts of squares business. How it's this thing that sort of bringing people in and once they're in the square ecosystem. They they start trying other parts of the business. So i don't know like would you look i get the. Pe ratio is somewhere north of five hundred. But when you when you look at everything that square has going on do you look at today as a buying opportunity for people who maybe had square on their watchlist and thought well okay. It's it's seven percent cheaper than it was yesterday. Yeah actually i was looking at. You know over the last couple of weeks how it's performed and through last week year to date. I think it was up. Something like twenty seven percent and then you have over the last couple of days. You know ten percent or so pullback and these are always the days as as a long term investor that i look for you know have a business. That's in my opinion burgeoning. Having fiscal year revenue grow over one hundred percent granted excluding bitcoin. That's only about fifteen or twenty percent but as long term investor. I do think this is an opportunity. I'm not personally a shareholder of square. But it's a fascinating business to me and we've seen so much traction and really their largest growing business in terms of bitcoin transaction cryptocurrency and things like that which really doesn't seem to be dying the craze three or four years ago now. And you know it's all of a sudden habit a two year hiatus and it's got right back in the thick of things you know which squares really benefiting from. So you know. I think if you're a long term investor willing to hold for a couple of years and not too worried about a lot of volatility which has realizing probably will continue to experience over the coming months over coming quarters over the coming years I think this is an opportunity to dip your feet in or maybe increase your position a little bit lows.

It looks like it wants to break out to a new relative high versus the SNP so I actually think that you can play the momentum and salesforce, but definitely take a little bit off the table if you're games, are that big? I tend to agree I. Mean it's really not just about my view on the stock. It's about what is the prudent way to go ahead and risk manage up thirty five forty percent. You one hundred percent need to be taking some chips off the table. I would agree I would agree as well in terms of the long-term uptrend. I would say it is pressing down a little bit towards if I remember correctly is fifty day moving average, but as long as it holds those long term averages. With, at least a portion of of my investment, absolutely all right, our next question is an international one. It comes to Roberto all the way from South Africa. I'm loving the show all the way from South Africa. Wanted to ask question relating to gold. It has run within one hundred dollars of historical high. So my question is. Is it time to start shorting gold and gold stocks? I mean even full Toronto two thousand. There should be more downside than up rats. I just wanted to say. Thank you for having me on the show. And thank you for your amazing analytics. As! Roberto from South Africa Guy Jami who knew we had fans although in South Africa. That is unbelievable. You know when back in another life one of our largest clients was the Reserve Bank of South. Africa And the road I believe from Pretoria to Johannesburg. Is Route One on one? And that was the codename Anecdotal Story I. Know Nobody Cares shorting gold here to me is a very short term trade. I do not although you had a huge reversal Newmont huge reversal panamerican. Silver today I. Don't think that's the right way to play. It I'm of the belief. That Gold's going to continue to move higher as his silver, and as are the mining stocks. You can be selective if you WANNA try to short them, but Roberto I stay long the commodities specifically gold and silver for the next six to nine months for sure Jaffa was your Taylor South African friend. Yeah I think that's probably too and I'll comment on silver specifically as well you know that's put in a massive base, and it looks to be breaking out to the upside so I agree with Guy Look in this environment. You might be able to play it on the short side for a quick trade, but overall I just think momentum's too strong you. You have had flows that are really aggressive into gold and the gold miner, so for that reason I think you can play it on the short side near term, but the momentum strong so I think looking out any further than maybe a month or so you probably want to stay on alongside of it

Markets fall on trade war and global growth fears

"I do think that the big story this week was really bond yields US ISM, leading indicators continue to get worse and everything we're hearing from CEOs is this is an uncertain time. And I don't think that any of these docs, should be outperforming when they're still within five to ten percent of all time. Highs having said that this is an investment show, and there's nothing about what's happened. Let me talk about the ones in that group that I think the most of an all start with Amazon and Google. There's nothing in the investment thesis for either of these companies that's broken. I realized dance talking about some cyclicality with the ad model. He's probably right? But, but everything that Google is doing is continuing to actually build out these these other parts of their size. Hello, YouTube is on fire relative to what it had been doing. And I look at Amazon, and yes, they may be going through a spending cycle. But there's nothing that showing me I want wanna make one point. We have a chart. It's gotten this squeak this one in here. We have Maggie chart, okay? Microsoft, apple Google, Amazon. And I think it's really important. Remember from their highs in q three of two thousand eighteen they lost a trillion dollars market, cap those four stocks. And so to me, I look at that and I say, well, you talked about some of the performance. We know that apple given back all of the app performance, if you were to see Microsoft to start to go down. You're going to have that chart back at, like three thousand down from four thousand very quickly in my opinion, when you think about the MAC market, cap four and a half trillion. It got down to I don't know somewhere in the low threes or something like that, at the Lowes. So if you lose Microsoft, I think you lose Meg

Earlier in November the company announced it would close almost fifty underperforming stores in the US and Canada by next February. Lows ninety nine orchard supply hardware stores will also close their doors by the end of the year. And that's not the end of the bad news last week, the home improvement chain said it will shut her all of its thirteen stores in Mexico and exit that country altogether. Anyone who's been watching new CEO, Marvin Ellison shouldn't be surprised? The Home Depot alum came into the job in July ready to take aim at anything that didn't look profitable enough. The company's been playing catch up to its bigger rival for years. But Home Depot just keeps on winning the DIY wars both companies sales. And profits are up, but Home Depot far surpasses lows. Activist. Investors aren't happy to see lows continue to be such an underdog, and they're pushing the company in two strategic moves like the store closures intended to strengthen lows ability to compete when Ellison who was CEO of troubled retailer J C Penney joined Lowe's, he almost immediately fired a slew of lows leadership team. It was his first shot across the bow. It's spurring the company into faster growth, so far expenses have been cut, but Ellison's still on a quest for bigger profits. Ellison says the closures will help the company focus on improving its e commerce platform and do a better job stocking the shelves in its brick and mortar stores customers have been frustrated by a lot of out of stock items. The kind of thing that sends shoppers fleeing to the competition, and that has to make Home Depot CEO Craig near pretty happy. Maybe he'll be able to hire some of those former lows employee's.
