Chris manet's these employed by sports illustrated. The announcers got it in for me. This is the crossover. Nba podcast problem with it. Build a team that can beat of hosted by the one in all. Thank god chris. Mannix paul west at is a familiar name in nba circles. He spent parts of six seasons as head coach to other half a dozen or so has an assistant spent many years in the college ranks as the only coach in history with an nba at wnba championship. He's also the author of the new book called the speed game and joins me now on the podcast paul. Thanks for joining me. On my pleasure. Chris so i guess start with me. The basketball beginning. How does a coach at lasalle wind up with the los angeles lakers well. It goes back to my a saint. Joe's college background You know i play for jack ramsay And also playing for ramsey. Was jack mckinney. Who While i a player was an assistant with with ramczyk. So then jack mckinney guests. The job as the new lakers coach. And he calls me and says i'd like you to come and be with may took me about seven seconds to say. Let me think it over. Yes some common and back then. Head coaches in the nba only had one assistant. So it was you know Was kind of an honor for mckinney to invite me and i was happy to oblige. It seems almost impossible to believe a day when there was only one assist now. I think there's one assistant per player right. Exactly there's a six on the bench behind the curtain and the sixth that that only do workouts. So it's a. It's a changing times there. So i mean for people that can't recall a time like that by. What are your responsibilities. As an assistant coach in those days you did a little bit of everything And i have to add to this. You and the head. Coach did bad eighty percent of the scouting so as you now know. There is a scouting division on nba teams. That probably is ten plus skies with director et cetera. Back then there would be a part time guy that would fill in some game so for example i would coach. Practice with jack mckinney. On tuesday at noon and leave that afternoon the fly to oakland the see the warriors play that night and then fly back on midnight. Flight back to la and be a practice..
Did Boston Celtics Overplay Their Hand?
"Boston. Overplay its hand. There were a lot of reports in the hours. Leading up gordon hayward signing that the celtics and the pacers were discussing a sign and trade gary washburn over the boston globe. He suggests that the pacers were willing to throw in miles. Turner the celtics water a miles. Turner plus package whether it's miles. Turner and tj warren or miles turner and victoria depot. That that that celtics package seemed to highly unlikely to be something the pacers would go for. Tj warrant is coming off a monster performance in the bubble and victor oladipo for all his injury issues. last year is still an all star level player. You don't give up to players of that caliber to get a player. That play like gordon hayward frankly so the celtics. They didn't walk away with nothing because they do have tristan thompson. Now they do have jeff teague. But i can see jeff how miles turner would goodness celtics uniform. And the guy is a three point shooting mobile shot-blocking big man. He's not perfect. He's been called soft before there's questions about positional fit. But something tells me brad. Stevens could do well with versatile. Big man who can shoot three pointer. I i just. I wonder if we'll look back on this in a year and wonder if the celtics overplayed their hand because miles turner in addition to all the things i said he's got a reasonable contract by nba standards anyway. Eighteen million dollars per year over the next three. What do you think of that. Do you think there's a chance the celtics overplayed their hands here. I don't know. I don't think so. Crass t taking a slightly different tact on it. Because i wasn't all that a or the whole idea of only getting mile turner back in the deal. I understand everything you just said But the celtics certainly just made a a decision that that's what they were looking for excitement. Lucy gordon hayward elsewhere without getting any say return on. I don't mind that trying to get a little bit more in it. Not working out for them and again. I'm hearing all your points what you're saying about mouse. Turner but that's something maybe dearly age his staff. I'm not saying you're gonna go out and find another mouse. Turner application that production with a couple of different players here and there and whether it ends up being some kind of combination of daniel thais and looking down the bench and seeing what happens off from that point I just wasn't sure that you know. Look indiana if you really wanna gordon hayward i think you had to force them to really make you pay for it and i don't say that do would you come down to it. The pacers were willing to give up that much and so that sure indicates how much that they really wanted. Gordon hayward i'm fine with the celtics student what they did now. You could be ultimately correct. They may regret not adding that kind of player. Especially we get into the playoffs split I agent it is staff are more than willing to let that ride. It see if they can't come up with that kind of a similar player through the course of use it a couple of different players and seeing what they can do at the trade deadline. Yeah they did get tristan thompson. Which is exactly what they need in on that front line. They've got the more athletic up perimeter shooting floor spacing kind of guy. You've got robert williams who is athletic shop locked they didn't have the physical rebounding tough guy. And that's what tristan thompson is brings championship experience to that team which i think will be a valuable addition and jeff teague is fine. He's not a starter anymore. But you're not asking him to basically kemba walker insurance down there in case kennedy's to take time off that knee injury so it wasn't. It wasn't a failure of an off season for boston. I just. I wonder how we look at this this summer. The summer this fall we look at a couple years

"And he's got a lot to lose financially so unless you have some concrete proof that that would shut that a legal perspective. I would shut that down. But he's he's not listening to anyone. And i don't know where he's getting some of this stuff from but it's just it's kinda sad really. I mean to see a guy who had a in the of course fans have their favorite fighters in the cesspool. That is the the boxing scene comments section sometimes in the forums and they have their favorites and they take shots at each other. That's also that's that's my twitter feed tuckey. That's of course we all. We all know that. Chris mannix is the devil and a piece of this understand. Those just knicks fans adam. Ob topping baby. But but what i'll say is i you know. I think the only thing wilder was had a good reputation as a person before except for the thing about saying to kill the best dumb. And you don't want on your. Because i know someone really well personally who has killed someone in the rain and i still talk to him. This day it happened almost twenty years ago and it's with him every single day. You don't forget that he'll someone in the ring. So i don't know why he would have ever said said that once and fifty times but going down a path here chris i just what is he hoping to gain by just is he hoping to go at this point. Tyson fury into it by just infuriating him to the I think he. I think it's having the opposite effect because i think tyson fury is now saying screw this guy man. I'm not going to give him the. Despite that he gave me the opportunity twice amok and all the things that he said about me. Call me a cheater in this in that most other stuff. I'm not going to give him the satisfaction now. And i don't know if i mentioned this on your podcast before. Maybe it was somewhere else but the problem that the auntie wilder i think primarily should have is with the way that the contracts were constructed in the sense that this third fight is now not happening. That's the problem that he should have. He fought tyson fury twice first time when he's certainly didn't have to second time we're honestly when he didn't have to so he didn't twice ray than has to and now he's.

All right. Howard beck is here joining me on election day after election day. I guess it's still is kind of election week. Howard it america's what this has become right. We're we're now part of the never ending cycle of being glued to cnn or fox msnbc or whatever it is that you you watch out there. But i've had my tv on for the better part of twenty four hours. I don't know about you. i did turn it off to go to sleep. I thought that was the healthy thing to do. I got up. I resisted the urge to turn it on again immediately. But i caved after about twenty minutes. Yeah it's it's a lot. It's a lot i would say this not to you. Know we have other things to talk about of course but you know players driving the black vote especially during the nba's restart if it turns out that. Joe biden wins the presidency. I deserve some credit for it. Right like i mean. If the voter turnout is the key to all this and it sure seems like it's going to set some records when it comes to voter turnout. How players participated in this process. I think we'll be influential. I think a lot of players can feel good about themselves and what they did. During that bubble to to push voting to the forefront as hard as they did will never be able to quantify that of course crazy. We'll never know exactly what the impact was and there were so many different forces at work in this particular election cycle across our country. But d- d- Rise of athlete activism and in the nba case maybe the strongest of any dealings with wnba wnba both But the platform that they have an the way that they've deployed over. The last. several months was incredible. And absolutely that that that's meaningful absolutely that helps you know you'll never know how many more voters there were because of it but listen at a minimum we know that a bunch of nba arenas became voting precincts because nba players pushed hartford in got that commitment if from the arenas that hadn't already they got more commitments in the wake of the wildcat strike in the bubble so you know at a minimum. Nba players contributed to making sure that more people had access to voting precinct amid a pandemic in a safer. Socially distanced place to vote. And in addition to that. Of course lebron james is more than a vote organization trying to you. Know a franchise voters in that battle back against the disenfranchisement of voters especially in the black community. All of that has had some kind of impact will ever know the extent but for sure. Nba players..

Joining me now on the PODCAST, one of my favorite writers out there Harvey Aronson is covered. New York sports for Multiple New York papers many of you listening in from his days as a columnist with the New York Times. His new book is called our last season, a writer, a fan, a friendship, and it's about a relationship develops with a fan at mass square garden one of. The Lifelong Knicks fans and we'll get into what it means to be a lifelong knicks fan as well. Harvey joins me on the show what's up arvy To be with you Chris thanks for being here. So this is your ninth book, which in of itself is remarkable since. I've contemplated doing maybe nine books. I haven't actually ridden one at this point. What was it about this subject matter that inspired you to to go again I mean, you know as well as anyone how challenging it is to to write a book what was it about this subject matter that kind of moved you Well. The person that you mentioned the fan who literally sat behind the Knicks Bench. For forty plus years woman named Shell Muffler she was. A divorced mother of five who? Lived in Connecticut, suburbs of New York. And with five kids after her marriage fell apart she. you know really didn't feel like she belonged there anymore a single woman with. China. Jumpstart career. But you couldn't move a family that large let's say into Manhattan. So she kind of rebuilt her social life, she always love basketball got himself. Tickets kept moving down through the years with to where she wound up right behind the bench and our friendship really began. With me kind of you know seeing her as a potential good source like every good tabloid muckraker. In New York. I was out there looking for sources as a young beat reporter for the New York Post and struck up a friendship with Michelle and she became a is in years behind the bench. You know, let me know who Brown was screaming at WHO's pissed off gang taken out of the game all. So this relationship ensued over forty years. She became something much greater to me. At the end of her life in two thousand, eighteen I wound up writing her obituary for the times I pitched really kind of thinking like they were going to say to me in A. Sorry, you know we run obituaries on people who write Pulitzer Prize winning novel is in cure cancer but the idea of this woman in sat behind the bench for that many years was settled well-known around the garden..

Joining me now on the show Jason Longtime journalist commentator recently left episode one to join out kick, and he joins me on the show Jason I congratulations. Definitely, an eye opening moved to see. Leave F S One. To Join Clay. Travis and outkick. Yeah I think. It's an eye opening moves and I opening move for me, you know. I wouldn't have predicted this. A year ago. But Chris I think when you look at where the media is going. if you don't have your own platform to stand on. A year, really vulnerable. I think over the long term and you know. I was in a conversation with someone a few weeks ago and we worked speckling. What's the best job in sports media right now? And it used to be like you WANNA. Be might will bond Tony Kornheiser. And we had to say like no, and you know this is no comment on what we think of day Portnoy, but he's got the best job in sports media. He is his own man, his own boss. His website matters. He's made a ton of money. And he gets to say and be himself and authentic at all times. You know I would put bill. Simmons it same lane at a clay. Travis was working his way there as well and now we're going to do it together it out kit. I mean this is off topic. When it comes to basketball. Where do you think media is going I ask someone that I worked for Legacy Media Company in sports illustrated I'm working for. We were talking before we started as a startup in zone. Where do you do you see media going in the next ten years? I'm not sure because I think to be honest with you not to be critical of anyone or any particular organization, but I think there's a major disconnect between the mainstream media and the average sports fan. There's so much pressure to adhere. To the popular sentiment and conventional wisdom of social, media. That that Kinda disconnects you from the typical sports fan, and so I, think for the sports media. At mainstream outlet, they're GONNA. Have a hard time keeping a strong relationship with sports fans unless you're just the straight information guy. You're Adam schefter Adrian skin. You have information to provide. You are always going to be necessary, but so much of the opinion and so much of. Of just all sports media now is geared towards social media. that. There's just this obvious. Disconnect between them in the typical sportswear. Yeah I think there's definitely truth to that. Art, I want to jump in with a couple of NBA related topics that have been in the news for the last couple of days and. The biggest storyline amongst NBA types that I've talked to in last couple of days. Is What happened this past week with Kyrie? Irving spearheading the call with one hundred players on the call. Irving expressed his position. That NBA players should consider not going to Orlando but the restarting season that resuming the season would be detrimental to the players work on social justice and police reform. Jason. There's certainly a lot to unpack in this particular. Situation, but especially with the Messenger on the timing of the message I guess, but what did you think of? Irving's staking out such a strong position on this issue. I think that. High re certainly is an outside the box. Thinker will put that positive spin on. It He's a different food. And, so if there was going to be someone that was gonNA take far out position on. This would be career. Of. I don't think he's on solid ground with his position. I don't think you should shut. Work To focus on social justice reform I think that his athletes as an opportunity to do both to continue working to to. To continue acquiring wealth, did you can direct toward the causes? You believe it. And I think that's the best strategy for athletes. I think that a lot of the athletes think they have to be the leaders on this issue, and not the support for these issues, and that's where I think they tend to get in out over their skis. I think that we've moved in a place in the sports needed. We're we're not. Accurately describing who the athletes are sports, fans and we're not helping. Athletes understand who they are because it's not normal to go from high school or one year in college at Nineteen and then become an instant millionaire and I. Don't think the athletes understand how that warps. Their perspective changes their perspective. They don't have the life of a normal American citizen or normal citizen, almost any country becoming a millionaire at nineteen twenty years all. Changes Your worldview and disconnects you from the typical person and makes you again I. It's like some of these guys come from rough backgrounds, but when you're blessed with all that athletic, give it America you can become very entitled. Privileged added early eight. Even when you're twelve thirteen fourteen years old, because everybody can recognize, there's a pot of gold with all this athleticism and people. Start trying to usher. You do the process just to get to that finish line. And so I just don't think the athletes are aware of what they don't know most people. We don't know what we don't know and I think they're great. Wealth fools them into believing. I'm I'm one of the smartest people on the plant? How else could it be making all this money? Well might be because you're one of the most athletic people on the planet. Not because you know, you're this great.

Part Ron Nut Carney is here fresh from his southern California estates finished around of surfing in the afternoon, and it's kind enough to rejoin me here on the podcast. What's up real on? You know Chris type. Appreciate that you think I have the ability of Surf. That means a lot to me I'm not I'm not typically known for my balanced, so appreciate you throwing it out there that I indeed cancer well I mean. The? Beaches of southern California flooded right. Now I'm not exactly sure what you're doing during all this I feel like there's a there's got to be a medium between the people that don't WanNa. Go anywhere and the people that just want to say. Screw it open. Everything up like how about we can get back to work, but maybe not spend all weekend at the beach like, can we? We agree that may be a prudent solution to this. Listen you have my. I can't I can't speak for what people are doing orange. County, which is like its own unique house scape I did see someone eating alone in a patio at like a very average diner the other day, and that made me sad like I understand people want things to open, but if it comes down to. To like eating alone at a very very average restaurant. Maybe it's not worth it for that either. You know what I mean. I would agree I would agree I. Think staying home might be the better course of action on that one all right. Let's talk about what's going on in the NBA right now. Because the NBA is not planning on staying on the League is set to return. Return Orlando. Twenty two teams will convene down in central. Florida, there will be an eight regular season games to determine seating and give the sixteenth currently on the outside, looking in a chance to make the playoffs. There are other machinations here. There could be a play in game for the number. Eight seed at the nine seed is within four games, so that allows them a chance to. Make up ground how to make up all the ground in that conference and gives the NBA maybe a little bit more juice, going into the post season, so give me your overall thoughts on what the NBA settled on for its return to play in two thousand twenty. I think ultimately made the most sensible call in in terms of. If the situation is, they're playing no matter what I understand why this makes sense. It's obvious that they have a financial motivation to get back on the floor. And I think having twenty two teams. There is kind of you know for them. The happy medium between you know they don't WanNa. Go right into the playoffs and have this long layoff in kind of risk, the integrity of the playoffs of this I think more than anything. The eight Games is is going to be a tune-up for some of the good teams i. I know that they are adding in these wrinkles like the plan tournament and you know the tiebreaker situation and all this kind of stuff. Maybe ads ministry. I'm really just looking at is. This is a tune-up for the playoff team. So from that aspect I I understand what they're doing I. Think makes more sense to do this than bringing all thirty teams back. I think the conversation I still goes back to. Was this the right call I think that's still a little bit up in the air, just the situation in Florida. Itself is already unclear. Something I actually wrote about Hey Chris and I think it's interesting. Adam silver I think has been lauded for kind of the stances east taken out throughout his tenure as commissioner whether it was Donald Sterling or moving the All Star game, or even the China situation to a degree. I think those decisions were in retrospect, and even at the time a lot easier than the one He has to make right now you know I i. don't think booting a racist Donald Sterling out of the NBA alternately is. As brave as maybe it seemed at the time or or moving all star game in a city. That was you know trying to propose Anti Trans legislation. This situation is a lot more risky. Than What Adam Silver has had to deal with in the past, and that's what's fascinating to me about this is. How high is the NBA risk tolerance for making money well it. Four 's a fact about Adam silver that has been repeated to me by a number of top basketball executives that yes, Adam silver is progressive. Yes, Adam silver. Does believe in setting a good example as a League but as the NBA Commissioner Adam silver is about the bottom dollar and this return to play for the NBA look. Let's not twist it. The this is about money. This is about making good on those national television contracts that they have obligations for in bringing twenty two teams back. It gives them a chance to make good on the twenty two regional contracts that the NBA is has obligations for I. Mean if they didn't come back at all. There would be. I don't even want to count how many financial how many revocations there would be that? The NBA have deal with in the twenty twenty twenty twenty one season, so this was done overwhelmingly for financial reasons, but I I don't think. It's mutually exclusive with. Is it right to come back to play I think those both those things can be true. The NBA definitely moved the goalposts with their their criteria for coming back. If you remember back in April Adam, silver, said something to the effect of we want to see Corona virus infections trending down well to your point earlier Florida they're not trending down. In fact in recent days they have spiked with the number of new cases that have been reported, so it doesn't really fit that criteria. All that being said the NBA is doing everything humanly possible to provide a safe environment for players, families of players coaches staffers all that, so look to me. It comes down to do you want to? Get back to work under circumstances where there's no chance you can contract coronavirus if that's the case, I respect that position, but that position may not be a reality until like middle of twenty twenty. One like this is this corona virus is here to stay for the foreseeable future it'll ebb and flow, but it's not going anywhere anytime soon, so if you're waiting for that day, okay, keep weighing in the. NBA decided that they're not going. Going to wait, they're going to go to a state that has welcome professional sports. That's where Florida has done, and they're going to try to create the safest possible bubble. I'm with you on the idea that it is much easier to toss donald sterling out his ass. It is much easier to look at a bad bathroom bill passed in North Carolina and say you know what we're getting out of that state for this cycle this. This could be a defining moment if the NBA goes down there and has a seamless post-season Adam. Silver is GONNA. Look Great. The League's going great..

"Everyone has worked with Dante. Ruiz from Bob. Arum to Eddie hearn. All the way down the line they have all said release has real talent so if it turns out. He's taking. He's trying to harness that talent the right way. I think he can be a heavyweight champion. Once again yeah absolutely and I. I don't know if you saw the Wendy's is selling out of Burgers so I dunno for up to a bad start with the with the partnership here but maybe there's a connection to what you just said a few minutes ago. Yeah I mean who knows with with Andy Ruiz. But I'm rooting for him. A nice guy and a talented talented fighter. So I'm curious to see what that weight looks like when he comes in the next time around a couple things Greg Mike Tyson out there once again and so much has been made the social media video where. Tyson was walking away at the just guard of his former trainer. Tyson's fifty three years old ben over a decade well over decades. Since he's fought in his last night last two fights were against Danny Williams and Kevin McBride to Journeyman. That both knocked him out. There's some momentum now to see Tyson back in the ring once again. Some people actually believe that there could be some kind of George Foreman like renaissance with Mike. Tyson what did you make the video you saw of Tyson working the pads. And what do you do? You want to see Mike Tyson. Active once again exhibition or otherwise. I mean what do you think? Well I'll give a couple of part answer there. The the first is I actually really enjoyed the video. Thought it was cool. It reminded me Tyson. Even at fifty three is more exciting than a lot of fighters that we watch on various networks. You know it was. There was a snap to the punches. There was a sort of the way that he hits that compact powerful thought that I mean it was. It was really cool to watch. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I watched the video a few times and I was like. Wow this is cool. It reminds you sort of like the last dance. It reminds you just how incredible of an athlete Tyson was in his prime. How exciting he was electrifying. He was how he made. You like. Stop what you're doing and sit and watch a video of a fifty three year. Old Man throwing punches. Some ads that happened. That said I don't really WANNA see a Tyson fight of these. Things tend to not work out that well in my opinion. You know Roy Jones. It's sad when we watch and fight these days. Even what he wins. You looked guy like I think you know. It was sad at the end. When he was still fighting I get why these guys can't let go. I get whether they want to step back in. I even get why people are still talking about Mayweather Pacquiao too and they might be using canes by the time they get in the ring again but I just don't. We seem to many guys suffer too. Many injuries have too much brain damage to make a farce into reality at that. Mike Tyson was one of the most exciting fighters of all time. I think we should leave it at that and I'd watch him do miss all day but I'd rather he doesn't take any risk you know. I don't think there's any reason to watch that. And He seems to have come a long way from kind of a really scary guy. Who did some really bad things in the one thousand nine hundred ninety kind of become something of a caricature with the appearance is a hangover movies? And he's got interesting podcast. Now that I've listened to on several occasions Maybe WANNA get back into the promoting business. Maybe once again to the training or managing business. I don't know I mean a lot of ways that Mike Tyson can contribute to boxing. And Look I'd even be okay. If Tyson decided to do some kind of exhibition match which is really all. He's talking about at this point. I mean if he wanted to do like a exhibition match with headgear with Lennox Lewis or Vitaly Klitschko and raise money for first responders or nurses or something. That's going on during this pandemic I am all for it. Put IT ON ZOOM. Pay Per view and we'll get together and watch that that particular rounding but I I'd remind people about what Tyson look like at the end of his career. I mean it was bad when he got knocked out by Danny Williams. It was worse when he got knocked out by Kevin McBride. I mean there's one thing to see Tyson kind of with the mystique taken away from lose to abandon holyfield and Lennox Lewis but Danny Williams and Kevin McBride. I mean I get it that if there is a division where you can make this type of comeback. It's probably heavyweight because the powers always going to be there and we've seen guys like form and do it but fifty three years old. The last thing you want to see is Tyson. Go up against some journeymen or somebody. Eddie hearn stable and just get whacked around it. Just it just doesn't make make a heck of a lot of sense here's one that would generate some revenue may be. How many people you think would pay to watch Tyson In an exhibition hit Floyd Mayweather? Two guys that are two of the greatest boxers ever one of food is pretty pretty well beloved despite obviously some things that happened in his past the other I think people have been waiting for the entirety of his career to see him get hit hard. I think the DAD would obviously be a mismatch and size. But I think you'd you'd have people lined up to pay for it. Oh you're right about you're right. About how beloved Tyson still is. I mean I remember we ringside for fury against Joshua Fury against wilder. When they introduced the former heavyweight champions and Tyson was introduced he got by far the loudest ovation. Out of anybody. There I mean he was revered by that crowd yeah absolutely. I remember the thunderous ovation that night. That was one of the last as we could actually gather next to other people and I remember all three guys coming in and I think Tyson has really sort of transition like you said into this kind of lovable character. Doesn't excuse anything that happened in his past. But you know I saw him do the Broadway show when I lived in New York. I've listened to the PODCAST. There's been some interesting long four stories on him like the G. Q. One and you know I. Just don't know that he needs to re enter a boxing ring to reclaim any past glory. He's very much in the public. Consciousness is very much taken an interesting life turn and I also wonder if he could pass the drug test based on what you see and hear in terms of you know if he actually did come back to fight you went to the Broadway show. Digit was your Broadway Guy. Yeah several several of them you know. My wife would sometimes for me to go to them but we did see tied. I believe because they let riders in for free. Which just tells you everything you need to know about me. I don't know if it's good or bad but I I lived in. Hell's kitchen for like ten years a stone's throw from Broadway and I never went to a single show. I never did regret that later in life. I mean I know every dive bar in the area but the Broadway shows not so much not so much. Let me finish with a story that I know will be near and dear to your heart because you are as I found out during our experience. Cover the Mayweather Pacquiao. Fight a huge. Game of thrones fan. The Mountain. From game of thrones who is now I guess technically the world's strongest man because of some dead lift record. He said he wants to get into boxing and he has the guy he topped the dead. Lift Record Eddie Hall to a boxing match which is scheduled to take place tentatively scheduled anyway for September of Twenty Twenty one. So let me ask you bishop. You Love Yourself. Some game of thrones and if you care to explain why you love game of thrones and what it does for your writing. I'LL BE HAPPY. Happy to let the people know but you do. You WanNa see the mountain. Step into the boxing ring. Well let's just start with a little. Game of thrones background. So for the for the mayweather. Paco Fiasco Chris. Mannix and I rented a house in Las Vegas and we lived together for a month. He gets called this the greatest month of his life repeatedly but very consistent in that regard and when I decided during that month since I wasn't with my wife or hanging out you know with anyone other than that I would add on. Game of thrones so that meant that. I would watch you know. Every episode of Game of thrones daily and I watched the entire first four seasons during that month. Now I like to take breaks when I get writer's block and men expenditure incredibly funny that I would try to make myself right. Better by going. Game of thrones and so he would always hear me in the room with the theme music going you know whenever he could tell whenever I got writer's block so that's a long way to sort of give to this question and the answer that before he before we get to the answer before we get to the answer like just just to to expound just a little bit on that it would be like tour. People get a visual visual. This bishop went and he was assigned to May weather and I was in Vegas assigned Pacquiao all things back. Yeah so I would sit every morning at the kitchen table and start writing and reporting and doing everything and Bishop do the same at the dining room table and periodically you just here like a fist slam on the desk or or some kind of noise and bishop would get up go upstairs and all of a sudden. I hear this spate sound of.

"It's just not a fight where the styles make sense. And it's not a fight that anyone is really clamoring for this moment you've got to British fighters in Callum and Billie Joe both titleholders. The win win. That fight would be a unified supermiddleweight champion. Why is that? Not The obvious fights. Make in the fall of twenty twenty. It's also the number one and number two in the super middleweight. Division remembers. Well subbing for the ring magazine Belt and all the that's what I was trying to show you that story. I mean I wasn't trying to save victory over Mannix by lesson before we start talking about ice picks in your eyes you know and that fight may well be made so be careful because and it's one that you'll be broadcasting on your cell phone deserve so wanna come home with ice picks or people attacking you with ice picks when you wait to that fight. 'cause I trouble is it stalemates. Isn't that contest with two variable could fighters and I love Boo Boo. By the way I mean is Is One of the guys. I love the sports Why isn't it being made? Well I think that probably still holding out full. Because there'd be no but the weird thing is billy Joe Saunders Josh Taylor and Ben Davidson rolled trading in Vegas together for the Cinco de Maya fight with canal. It hasn't had to actually be officially announced. Had it even though it was one of the worst kept secrets? In boxing we knew is about to happen. They only started trading so officially. It hasn't been announced his own so maybe officially hasn't even been announced his off. So I it's a very good question. Freddie heard right now that is actually and when we get off this cool. I'm just put a little colon to him. Well it's like if you do Billie Joe versus Android Billy Joel could lose that fight. Very easily like android is a phenomenal boxer. And if Billie Joe Loses it makes the Callum Smith fight almost irrelevant by. You might be able to rehab it over the next year. But we've seen what happens when you wait too long. Amir Khan Brooke should have fought two years ago and and now that fight is almost irrelevant in terms of of establishing any type of top fighter. I if you can do a senior circuit type of of event to be a money. Grab but right. Now you got Billie Joe has his title. Didn't doesn't coming off a great performance. Neither his Count Smith. But I think you have to strike while the iron top because there are way too many examples and you know this way too. Many examples of over marination leading to fights either not happening or becoming far less relevant when they do not agree. And I think I think what we'll see versus if if Bonello into Billy Joe Saunders doesn't go ahead. I think we will see that fight made because it will resonate Brinson and ye could put it on anywhere I mean and again. It's one of those fights the if you had to do in the small hole behind closed doors it would generate interest Certainly in the industry. And maybe you could make it a bit wider than that. There's a natural home for Billy Joe Saunders Count Smith that is Jeddah Saudi Arabia. Where Eddie HEARN LOVES TO PUT ON MEET? Your boxing shows crazy.

"Wilder had any kind of character. He will do exact same thing. Anthony Joshua did to regain the belts not fire. Anybody don't blame anybody. Shut THE HELL UP. Get to the gym and just win your next fight win the rematch. That's how you shut people up. That's how you prove that the first fight was a fluke or whatever you WANNA call it but you don't do it by blaming everybody firing everybody and expecting the results to be different. Just not gonNA happen. Yeah I'm with you. I think he's well. Look Anthony Joshua. Add to his trainings but he didn't fire. You're right by ROB. You wanted him to do. I didn't say loyalty and I said loyalty is all they have in to the Olympic gold medal and the unified heavyweight championship or the world. You want him to throw that out for one fight. Fuck you mannix. Is that not something? That's happened countless times. Where fighters fired their trainers. I mean did should manny Pacquiao. Stay with his original trainer and not gone to Freddie Roach helped catapult him to should Wladimir Klitschko have stayed with original exception to every rule. But in I just named to the top of my head. What does an exception to everyone in the end? What is it going to stay in the annals of history and the history and host of Donald or got the onnell's history? Boxers that leave their trainers. It doesn't end up right because they're the ones that made you and no one else knows you like your trainer worked. Punctuate this conversation with with that right there. Let's move onto the fight this weekend. good fight good card here in Dallas Texas. Mikey Garcia taking another crack at the welterweight limit. This time fighting. Jesse Vargas your members bite. Last summer he was completely blown out by aerospace. Not only shame in that it might be moving up to one forty seven and immediately taking on arguably the number one guy at one forty seven but he decided to stay at welterweight. He's taking another guy that even though Jesse Vargas doesn't have the resume of errol spence. He's been in with the best before he's been a world champion before. This is a tough fight for mikey. Garcia. Minute wait a minute. Jesse Vargas has a great resume. He doesn't win the big fight so he has a great says. Benon with one draw with Boehner. I thought you said he doesn't have the resume of Aerosmith. I said absolutely. I mean got better resume because he wins wins. Yes no part of the whole. Yeah you win so great but it gives everyone. He hasn't been knocked out. He gives everyone a run for their money. Yes I mean. Farm are famous yes tim. Bradley and Manny Pacquiao Boehner four-time afford champion. However you want to see that. Let's just go. Yeah I we both agree. Jesse Vargas very good fighter. Yeah so what do you think of the decision by Mikey to stay at welterweight and fight? A guy like Vargas in in in Spanish. We call that stubborn and he's Mexican. American unease grew up in southern California. And yeah man we we have. That temperament were stubborn. We WanNA prove that that we can do it against all the criticism maybe not against the aerospace as of the world but against the Jesse Vargas as Jesse Vargas never been knocked out. He's a two division world champion and he's an excellent fighter gives everyone a run for the money including great fighters like Manny Pacquiao and and and Tim Bradley so if if Mikey Garcia can convincingly beat a fighter like like Vargas or even knock out a fighter that's never been knocked out in Jesse Vargas. That's a statement. That's I'm back and guess what I did at one forty seven. I'm better call. I'm stubborn I did it. Forget the criticism I'm staying. I'm here to stay Mikey Garcia. I think he'll be better this time around. He's got the experience of fighting at welterweight. He knows how to make the wait now and just kinda prepare himself on. Fight night for a fight. It's going to be considerably bigger than him. And look he's taking on a guy that is probably not going to hurt him but Jesse might be without boxing but Jesse's not a huge puncher. I don't think there's much danger. In Fighting Jesse Vargas. There was with aerospace. That's an easy thing to say there. I just. I think it's a risk because what happens if Jesse outbox completely which is possible. Jesse is GONNA come into this fight at around one hundred sixty pounds. Most likely is a big one hundred and forty seven pounder. Who's going to rehydrate? Well above I think the middleweight limit. What happens if Mike Loses badly in this fight? That's that I think would do some significant damage to his career. I mean you could always go back down to one hundred forty pounds and get significant fights that the winner program. Hooker would love to fight. Mikey Garcia so much pride for that. Mikey Garcia is too much I think if he loses in depending how he loses to Jesse Vargas. I think that would be an and I'm saying there's just blindly especially just leaving the fighter meeting with Mike Garcia. He didn't want to become a fighter like he told us he was around. That passionate passionate a fighter. He wanted to be something else sees a college graduate. Now he wanted. He has other ambitions now. He has money in his pocket now. He's not poor so a loss of Jesse Vargas. I think will be the end of a Great Hall of fame career in Mikey Garcia. Not because he can't continue doing it because if in his mind if he loses to a exceptional fighter two division world champion Jesse Vargas and depending how loses for him? He's not good enough to be beat. The greats anymore beat the people pound for pound fighters that he should be beating. And that's the kind of ambition and Mikey Garcia. Hasn't that's why he's a great fighter great fighter Mustang good or exceptional great fighter and I think if he loses. We'll see the end of them so the end of him where I don't think he's done if he loses. I just thought he didn't have the ambition of boxing when he was young. He said he was pushed into you. Just heard them in the fighter meeting. I wasn't about Mikey along was pushed into it. It seems like the passion is not there. He just naturally gifted and like. We've seen a lot of talented artists and writers. You would know but they don't have the ambition. I mean they're just naturally gifted they do it. They do it because they're so good and people tell them they must do it. They're not pushed into. It's like okay. I can make a lot of money and people love the way I do in love what I'm doing. Let me continue doing it. But as soon as someone who's them wrong and he's already been proven wrong and spence but he can blame it on being a welterweight but if he does it with a non puncher like you say Jesse Vargas. I will see the end of them out of pride. Not because anything else just out of pride. I don't know I mean I think maybe he kinda rebuilds and doesn't take on the winter appropriate hooker next back to back losses with a proud fighter like that. Yeah he's a proud fighter. But you're still going to be in demand it can make a lot of money and as long as isn't get knocked out. I don't think it's I think you can. You can write it off as saying look. I bit off more than I could chew. I'm just not a welterweight. I am in elite. One hundred and thirty five pounder. I am a very good one hundred forty pounder. I'm just not one hundred. Forty seven hundred. We've seen it all the time. Sergio guys moved up in weight. And like well you know what that was a little bit too much. I'm going back down. I can see that scenario happened for Mikey Garcia. But they don't have the character of Mikey Garcia. And Mikey Mikey has this. This maturity this intelligence to him. This example like this is a real character. Mannix character I'm telling you right now. Mikey Garcia if he loses independently loses bad. Jesse Vargas on Saturday. I think that'll be. That'll be the end of his career. But for right now you won't see him again. You just saw a couple of weeks ago we saw Hoyle Norris who went two hundred forty pounds after losing dilemma. Chango lost badly was smoked by PABLO CESAR. Cotto knocked down three times in a first round knockout comeback and pick up a huge knockout and is now going to walk into a massive. This is why I hate debates with you because you make good points. Sometimes that's a great point right there learners. Yes so sometimes. What'S THE COUNTER ARGUMENT? That like the counter arguments is that Mikey Garcia is. There's something different about them and Llaneras has been knocked out several times. So He's hiding times yes he's already been down out several times he knows how to come back. Mike Garcia just two losses back to back to champions multi division champions. I think that'll be. That'll be enough for him to say man you know. What if I can't be pound for pound grade I don't just want to be average and you gotta you gotTa respect that. I do respect that but it look if there's motivation for Mikey Garcia. It's what might be awaiting him after this fight if he can beat Jesse Vargas improved. That he's a top tier or at least the medium tier welterweight. There's a good chance he gets the fight Deepak absolutely especially if he can beat him decisively even knock them out because then you could sell that promote then say look many popular. Great Manny Pacquiao. Kenaka Vargas Mikey Garcia. And Eddie hearn has been walking around this week in Texas saying that he can see that fight being made for the summer in Saudi Arabia. Look part of Patios issues from what I've been told her desire to fight outside. The country is the tax stuff. I mean the taxes are significant. And you go to. Saudi Arabia don't have to have anywhere near kind of a tax liability with something like that. So if Eddie hearn kin score the type of Saudi oil money that paid in line the pockets of Anthony Joshua I can certainly see it happening because on the side. Look I don't know what else is GonNa do. I don't know what's next for him and if he does go into a big fight. I think it's more likely fights Danny Garcia than fighting many packet which Paki out kind of looking around going. Well I already beat Keith. Thurman I don't really have a desire or need to fight Shawn Porter. I could've fought turns Crawford years ago but I decided within so. He's not GonNa do that now. They have wanted to fight Mike for Awhile. Patio actually showed up at the aerospace. Mike Garcia fight people thought he was there to call out Arrow after he was there to Scout. Mike Garcia. Everyone on his team was rooting for Mikey Garcia to win that fight because they want to see Paki out versus Mikey Garcia if Mikey can win convincingly if the politics worked out I think that will be a fight in the summertime in Saudi Arabia. Especially if you look at many pock yells resume with Mexican a Mexican American fighters I mean. He's just he's huckleberry he. He knows he knows that style. And and and as a Mexican or Mexican American in myself I look at Baucau. And he's a fellow Mexican. 'cause we love that type of style? And he has a lot of Latino fans yes fans all over the world but yeah Mexicans really appreciate many and that'll be a pay per view so that will do over a million easily. Well if it's on disown. It won't be a pay per view which it probably will be and if it's in Saudi Arabia. I don't think it's going to do that type of number either but it's still a great fight and one that even if it's in the afternoon is something everybody will be watched the way you promote that fight at eight division world champion versus a four division. We'll be in Philippines Mexican American Saudi Arabia all of the above. It's great if we have to go back to Saudi Arabia. I don't to the best part of Saudi Arabia. Was You being miserable? Yes couldn't sleep. The entire trip take hills on Friday. Get down and then I got sick and it started raining. Almost didn't make the fight almost missed the fourteen and a half hours. You lied about your phone being broken and I sleep. That's why looked like this and you look like you. Yeah Okay Yeah He. Have you seen your nose lady your face makeup? Yes looks like Casper. I'm a white guy from Boston? Puts them chillier? It's a podcast idiots. All right let me finish with a fight. That was announced this week. A officially welterweight by between two top to your junior welterweight. S- outrageous coming off the unification loss against Josh Taylor. He is getting right back into the mix against Moore Sukkur who fights again love this five mental hope and so bad that it was going to get made. Murray to fights ago lost in his chance to unify against Jose Ramirez. This is basically. It's kind of like the loser's bracket in the world boxing super series. Because you've got Taylor and Ramirez scheduled to fight each other at some point twenty twenty now. You have pro great person Hooker and I love to guys getting right back into the mix. I don't care that's one hundred forty three pounds. I don't care at all that there's no belt on the line in a fight like this. These are two guys that are among the best in their respective way classes and I take it you like this man. I love this fight first of all I love program and I thought his fight with Josh. Taylor was a a great back and forth. I thought Taylor One Convincingly even though some people thought program deserve more credit but it was It was it was two elite champions fighting each other at that way division and with Hooker. He faced another elite champion and a unification and Ramirez and we all saw what happened candidate for fight of the year. It would've lasted a little bit longer in my opinion but yeah the loser's bracket both these citing both these guys carry theirselves champions. They are champions. And it's exactly the type of bounceback fight that you WANNA see after a devastating loss of your hooker or after a competitive loss if your program. It's I can't believe the promoters actually decided to agree to do this. I can't I can't believe the fighters agreed to do it because usually they want a bounceback fight. Especially if you're Mojo Khor I mean you just got a bounceback fight program..

"It's the best way to make sure that we keep doing this podcast week after week but first. Sergio we gotta look back man. We gotta look back at a terrific weekend in Las Vegas and one of the bigger upset because it was a it was projected to be a close fight between Tyson fury and deontay wilder. The odds weren't wide in either direction. But if you had asked anyone out there how they thought this was going to go. I don't think too many people would have said that. Tyson fury overwhelms deontay wilder physically. Takes the fight to him and forces while there's corner to throw in after the seventh round. Let's start with Tyson theories performance. What did you think of the way? Fury fought against wilder. First of all no way. No one expected that I believe. The wilder was the favourite the favorite to win that fight right. I believe ever so favor but a favorite to win the fight. Tyson fury under I mean. They're both undefeated. Tyson fury lineal champion. But what he did was special. He'll box them. The first fight. Everyone knew that and the second fight. He said he was gonNA outfight him. Usually when you have a boxer that moves around like Tyson theory uses angels. He's not the biggest puncher but he has respectable power. I mean we all knew who the punch here was and it's wilder. But man I mean fury he he walk the walk talk the talk and he punched the punch and he took the fight out of wilder man and the way he did it. I mean he made them pretty much. I mean they stopped the fight. And there's a lot of controversy. I'm sure you're going to want to touch into that. But he made them submit. Somehow someway with you. Don't need to have a towel thrown in. You don't need the referee of the doctor to stop it. Sometimes when you're fighters getting beat A. B. Nan. There's no answer for it. You're submitting little by little. There's no answer. You're you're not winning rounds. While there wasn't winning rounds I mean he hasn't. He didn't do anything to prove that he can change the fight around with one punch even though he can do it because he did in the first fight and that's why he's so upset but no man Fury Alpbach. Some outfought him. Personally I don't need to see a third fight to craziness those that Tyson fury was telling anyone that would listen. This is how I'm GonNA fight and I don't think anyone really believed him. I thought they'd sign them. I didn't really believe in either because there really hasn't been anyone that's taken the fight to Deontay wilder like that in his career. Luis Ortiz in the last tactical fight. It was a successful strategy up until he got knocked out. But I thought that was the attack that Tyson fury it was gonna take but he clearly after going twelve rounds with deontay wilder knew that he could take his power to a certain degree to get knocked down a couple of times and he knew that the best strategy was throwing a bunch of punches and backing him up. I know that wilder had said coming into the fight that Tyson furious pillow Hans but he couldn't have believed that because fury hurt him a couple of times in that first. That wasn't a case of wilder. You know just dealing with pitty patter type of guy. He knew the kind of pop that a six nine two hundred seventy three pound man had and I give credit look. It was controversial to move away from Ben Davidson his trainer that got him back from the depths of humanity to get back in the ring to wins and then you fight deontay wilder but going to sugarhill training in that cronk style. I think that had a benefit argue all the time about what was about to touch on that change I read. This is the first time. I'm going to agree. You mannix that trainer. Change was a revelation. If that's the word because I saw I saw something in theory. I didn't think he had he. He thought the puncher and we all knew that while there has been no box before fury. That's that's all. I thought he had no way that I think he was gonNA knock out and make wilder pretty. I hate using the word submit because he wanted to continue but he beat the fight out of them and to me. That's a form of submission. And he was looking around for help. He said he didn't. He was blaming everyone but himself but he just didn't have the fighting. There was no fighting his eye in the corner. I always look at the corner. How how he's reacting. With his trainer there was no fighting. And there's no instruction it was a little bit of everything that went wrong for wilder but everything went right for fury. I mean the man I said this afterwards from what he from what he thought the privacy. How you so eloquently put it. He came back from all that to become the champion. Knock off the number one heavyweight the baddest man in the planet and knock them out the way. He did that that right there. That's what legends are made of men. That and this man became a legend. Not only because of a story and everything he had to conquer but holy shit the way did it going up in weight. The way he did I mean he he has A. He has a future outside of boxing where there's motivational speaker whether it's an active right now. He's a heavyweight champion of the world are. Let's talk about some of the controversies that were part of the fight. In the aftermath of the fight in the first and most significant is mark bruins decision to throw in the towel in that seventh round. Brilliant is the assistant trainer in wilders corner. Jd's the head trainer has explained to me before and did it again after the fight that they run things differently in team wilder whereas it's more like an NFL team. Where is the head coach? Brilliant is the offense coordinator effectively saying that brilliant has more power than most assistant trainers do but Sergio Eurofighter. I don't know any assistant. Transit has the power to do something like that and throw in the towel. That's what made that decision shocking. So let's start here the decision to throw in the towel by Mark Berlin. What did you think of it at the time? And what do you think now? I thought it was the right car. And I'm speaking for the fighter. I'm speaking for the fire in Mark Berlin because J. D. if that's his name because I haven't even studied them I don't know he is. I don't know what a champion vs guy. He got wilder from the very beginning and built into a world. He's one for one while they're good for him but he doesn't have a resume he's like for instance my coach. John Montelongo he. I've had my entire career but he doesn't know boxing. Boxing trainer deemed compost. So that's what I think capping here. I respect them both equally so if one wants to fight to stop the fight you gotta appreciate that more brilliant. He's an Olympic gold medal. It's one of the greatest amateur fighters in history a two-time professional champion. What does J. D.'s done? How does he know what it feels like to be a fighting another man professional fighter to be? Have that pain to know that. There's no winning this fight. There's resignation submission all these other things he could a fighter could see another fighters is when he's lost when there's no answer for that. What the fuck is Jay? Dee's no inside the ring. He knows his men outside the ring. But what does he know inside the ring? Those were punishing punches. And not only that. You start thinking as a fighter as as a retire fighter. Now coach like like the assistant trainer Margaret. When you start thinking about the future what pass boxing. The family man. I mean there are so many tragedies that happen in the last two years five six fighters have died. One one of our watch and it's just when stuff like that happened. I wish I would've stopped it earlier. Look Wilder wasn't taking a humongous beating but he was starting to get beaten down and he wasn't in the fight. Mark Brilliant saw that. I think he made the right. Call all respect to dis for for bringing up a world champion like that. But he doesn't know what Margaret Linda's you can ask any professional fighter especially one in the championship level. If mark really make the right choice it will be one hundred percent unanimous absolutely. Yeah I mean you have to look at what. Mark Bruin was seeing at that point of the fight. I remember tweeting this at the time in the sixth round. I'm wilder and he's moving around the ring. And every time he got close to the ropes he put his arm up on the ropes to basically prop him up. That told me he was completely. That's that's bad body language for a fighter. Anytime you start boxing when your arms are up like that you'll see. The trainer slapped the end hands down. That's a sign of and I keep saying it. That's a sign of submission. That's a sign of. I'M TIRED. My legs are done on a break. Negative negative negative art. So you don't WanNa do that. That's why the reason the trade always pushed the album's down. I know look like you want to have the body language. Don't show resignation. Show the referee that you want to continue fighting. It's body language. Deontay didn't have that. But you know who did have it marked. Brilliant for noticing. Yeah and look I was I was ringside so I couldn't see or hear what was happening in the corners but I remember after that sixth-round seeing what I saw in the sixth round looking up at the big screen and just seeing the kind of engagement between wilder and decent Brio and while there had his head down he wasn't really interacting with either one of them. That told me that he was on the cusp of being done. And then I'm assuming this brillant hasn't really talked about this yet but I'm assuming brilliant saw that big right hand come in from fury and that was the straw that broke the camel's back there and look. We both know deontay wilder when a decision against Tyson fury and at that point in the seventh round. I think we had a pretty clear idea. That wilder didn't have the power anymore to land that big shot against Tyson fury. So if you're you're sitting there going all right well my can't knock this guy out. He may be able to hang in there for three. Or four more rounds. What kind of punishment is he gonNA take? In between the thing. The beautiful thing about punchers. They can end fights with one with one punch absolutely. Everyone likes to see a power punch but you know what they suck at doing surviving. You know they don't know how to survive because they're not used to being on the other side of the they're not used to being hurt they don't know how to hold onto no kill rounds. They don't know how to move around the ring. George Foreman deontay wilder named puncher after puncher. They don't know how to make how to survive when they're hurt because they're not accustomed to being hurt and fighter more. Brillon who may not have been a power punch like that. But he's been around power punchers. I mean he wasn't the Olympic team with with great heavyweights. So he knows what it's like these guys don't know how to survive these punchers. Deontay wilder was going to be loss. Only that he didn't have the amateur pedigree. That a lot of that Margaret had so even worse he wasn't going to be able to survive but credits the browns bomber look. A fighter wants to die in the ring and believe me. I believe on when he says that..

Gary Russell Jr. dominates Tugstsogt Nyambayar, retains WBC featherweight title
"Gary Russell. You know with an interesting figure. Because he's extremely talented fighter. We saw he scored a nice win against You know king tug in the mandatory fight that took place last week Everybody looks Gary. Russell has a great talent and a in a in a worthy competitor against any of these guys but he has said that he can't get the big fight now. If you can't get the big fight you take the next biggest one you can get and go out there and make seven figures every time you get in the ring for whatever guarantees are. He has decided not to do that. He wants to Fight Leo Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz findings. Your Monty Davis. Obviously that is not going to be therefore if you look down the list of guys at one twenty six or even at one thirty you know for him that our makeable that are going to be interesting to the public. There's not a lot there. He says he'd go up to one thirty five if necessary You know if there's no Leo Santa Cruz Fight. Against Tank Davis. I'll tell you a huge that at least in part of the country I live in the you know the the Washington DC Maryland. Virginia area is tank against Gary Russell. I mean one guy's from Washington and One guy from Baltimore they'd fill up any of the arenas in either city but again that's probably alongside so Gary Russell. He's kind of like a man without a country right now. He's he's got talent he's got a title he can really fight And he just doesn't have the top guy to fight against unfortunately so he's Kinda off to the side and you know he's only been fighting once a year I I would hope he would be able to find another before the end of this year if he does. I just really couldn't tell you who it's going to be against her. What kind of level? It's going to be one twenty six or one thirty Gary Russell. I think would be a threat either. Spotty Caesar's really

Build a team that can beat of hosted by the one and thank God Mannix Wes. Wilcox is here former Atlanta Hawks general manager. Nba TV analyst. All around good guy for joining me here days before the NBA trade deadline. What's up West not much Chris. How're you do you miss this time of year as a now former general manager was this? Does this get your juice going this this week? This week is the most fun of any time of year. Because you know you're focused on one thing you know what your objectives are and you have trays to try to to try to pull off You know there are other times of the year that you just you know like the draft is one of the most challenging because you're working on trades potential planning for free agency and of course draft night so this is one of those times a year that you do miss you now. You can tell me if I'm wrong on this but this is one of those times a year that it feels like everything not everybody writes. But it's certainly what I feel like I would. I write what others other guys nationally right. There's a level of truth to all of it because I mean I know a lot of assistant. Gm's just canvas the league with so if you see something like checked in on or called about chances are probably happened because everybody's kind of kicking the tires on everything. It seems like yeah. So are you talking about just the media reports and all of the room? I mean it feels like they're true because it just depends on the level of truth to it right like our how serious a team was about a phone call that it made or a potential conversation. It had one of the things I've learned doing media the last couple years is the media does a great job of getting information. And so yeah. I think there's teams do a great job of trying to turn over every single potential opportunity so a lot of what you read may not be like down the road. It may not actually happen. But is there something that created that oftentimes? Yes no though. There have been things that you read internally that are completely made up one of the most respected media members colleagues of yours reached out to me one time about something that we supposedly are. I supposedly had said that we would. It was like just. It could not have been further from the truth so there are times that it definitely is not as credible but most often. There's a lot to it. I would say this to sometimes executives and maybe this is more this might be more draft connected but sometimes executives use the media to disseminate what they're looking for or what they're trying to if the easiest way to get out there to teams but what they're willing to deal and what might be what what back in return no doubt. I mean there's there are there are teams out there. Trying to create markets and oftentimes. You have to be careful about not what is said. But it's what is what is not being said and oftentimes. That's where the story is. It's so much fun. Such a fun week to deal with and it's an interesting one this year and I want to jump in at the at the top with all the talk right now around Cling Cappella the rockets center who has three years left on his contract. Manageable money for a player of on his level around twenty million dollars. Give or take each year up the rockets they. WanNa do something. And that's kind of Darryl Maurice M. O. In Houston they they. Don't I think what they're looking for is a trading partner that will give them back assets that they can turn around and flip for something else so this is a multi tiered approach that the rockets are taking this. What do you make of Houston at this stage of the season looking to move off.

God mannix Nick. Right is here first things first Sirius. Xm Radio and one of my occasional on TV nemesis. Chris what's what's the plural of Nemesis. Is there who I think. I'm not sure but I'm only one person even though I'm sure when you're arguing with me. Sometimes it feels like there's multiple people involved. It's good to see him. Sometimes it does feel like this multi there. It is good to be here recording with you just hours. After the Lakers were trampled annihilated by the Celtics I've been. I've been hitting refresh refresh refresh. I've been waiting for the annual tradition of Chris. Mannix getting Boston Celtics fans up just at the hopes up just a touch high. The I know you were saying before the year or early in the year that there may be a big man away from being able to make the NBA finals. I assume now your belief is they can make the NBA Finals as presently constituted. And maybe win. Am I correct your incorrect? I having seen them get trampled. Mostly by Milwaukee. A few days prior the bucks to me are still class but tomb. We'll let me for an organ. Make this a celtics thing no. Let's do it incited to moves. The Celtics should make in the next month and a half trade for `Davis Burton's in Washington terrific three point shooter. Give UP THE MEMPHIS. Pick to go and get them. That's probably going to be like the teens. Something like that on the Memphis quasi good deal the memphis pick and some small piece because Bertos make a ton of money get bertone's he's a floor spacing guy make shots off the bench. Resign him at a pretty big number next year and have him as part of your and at the buyout market sign. Another member of the Washington was good. Get bought out. Yon Mimi Oregon. Yawn Mimi bring in Dave Davos. Bertone's then you're cooking and you give yourself a chance. I've always had the belief that the more wizards you can add to your team better. Do winning a championship. Can I throw a different? Yes sake trade at you. Yes especially now that the Memphis pick for a long time. I know people thought might be one day a number one pick or top five not so much now that that's in play the Celtics and they were great yesterday and Jaylen Brown who I mocked the contract extension that that extension looks better and better by the day. I have to concede that point. We'll see how it ages over the next couple of years but through the first probably pretty well good continues his up it will I? I WANNA see Kimball. Obviously he's been awesome for them But when I watch him and I feel like their one piece away I think they should go after Anthony Davis. I think he could really fit with what they're trying to do. And it seems like something that really I think Danny Aines should look into. Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis okay. I think it'd be good. I know he wasn't very good yesterday. Maybe you can against the Lakers. Maybe you can get him with. The stock is down. Now I know I know Danny. Probably wouldn't trade for him unless he committed to a long term contract. Include Marcus smart by the way Marcus. Smart wicked good. Marcus smart did he. Eleven threes the other day. Did I think he's got? It has to have been the highest percentage of threes for someone to twenty shots in a game. Twenty shots eighteen. Three point attempts to that. Well that's what it was wild that yeah that's crazy good friend because once upon a time he was the worse shooter in the SC was and last year. He shot like a really respectful number. Thirty four thirty five thirty something like that which was great and had an eleven three game. I couldn't believe it but no listen. This is people. Think I don't like the Celtics and it's not true. It's mostly because of me. Well there's there's a few things I I just got tortured history with Boston sports in general but I I love Janas the boxer my preseason pick to make the finals last year there my pick to make files and I thought they were going to roll to the finals. Till that triple overtime was triple overtime. Double overtime game three against the against the raptors and they're up to nothing and all series flipped but I really even though I don't like being wrong would love it if the Celtics could over achieve to make the finals because nothing would be better. Then if Celtics finally breakthrough again post Keiji era only to meet Lebron the NBA finals. We can sweep their ass out of the playoffs again. That's kind of would be the perfect way for the season end instead. I think it's going to end with Lebron versus Johnson the finals but we're GonNa have ourselves Celtics for great yesterday. Lebron was not very good and the Lakers lost second time in three games after a really good win against Houston game. I actually was at down in Houston this week. Great Game Against Houston. I wanted to touch on some of the rockets towards the end mocked one of my takes on the elevator on the way save. Let's say there's a long? Is it going to be a longer? Podcast I promise you America. Chris Mannix you think he's had some wild takes before the rockets take Chris. Mannix is about to unveil is all time galaxy brain take so we can get to that later on top of the Western Conference right now. You've still got the Lakers. With a comfortable lead over the clippers but those two teams one to win and the clearly the class I think. Oh let's be fair to the Nuggets Jazz while the nuggets fair to the jazz. They've been uneven most of the year. They're they're they're picking some momentum upright his nuggets jazz-clippers same exact record. All thirty thirteen with the clippers. Potentially could so. You could say the clippers during the second you say. They're in fourth third as well. What have right. But I look at the Clippers record with like twenty four and eight as I'm recording. I mean they're great with collide in the lineup. He's just he just doesn't like to play doesn't like to play all that off. Let's those teams. I'm still convinced they're going to meet in the conference finals. Are they either both those teams where you expected them to be right? Now the Lakers. I was surprised by how fast they started. I mean I thought they'd get off to a good start giving the schedule but that early December stretch where they started to win games against good teams. That surprise me and the clippers when Kawai plays. They're really really good when he doesn't they're kind of average show. Yes so the I I think both of these teams are exactly where I projected him for the year. Which was the Lakers? Being the best team in the West and they clearly are. I don't know why people would be surprised at them. Being awesome they have two of the six players and basketball and their best players. Actually play all the time which is helpful. I Know Anthony Davis has got hurt on so missed. Five Games without wasn't a load management issue of Lebron's played forty one of their forty three games. They had to me shocking. Win The one of the Games. Lebron missed the game against okay. See we're no libranoy? Anthony Davis I think Ronda was hurt for that game as well. Not Rondos any good Your comes Kaku and they were right and it was one of the few good Kyle. Kuzma games the clippers. Also you know this. I picked them to finish fourth in the West and lose in the first round. I do. I think that they will lose in the first round. I think that is entirely independent or dependent on what they who they draw. Like for for instance. I think Dallas is a great story. I don't think Dallas winning a playoff series this year. I don't think there yet ready for that. And I think that Luca. Who is my third favorite player basketball and you and I were on the same page book you know the IT feels like the folks anyone that actually cared at all about international basketball was saying so. It's not like I was unique in this. And if people care enough to listen to this podcast a lot of people that Luke was the clear cut number one. Pick of that draft. It was I D Andre. Eight and he's going to have a really nice career and he he's a really good player and trae. I love trae. Luca was the only guy who could have been what he was and his numbers. This you're out of this world. I still don't think there yet. Ready to be a real contender. I think it's probably another year supporting cast around them. They were playing over their heads a little bit early in a playoff series. I feel like you just throw two people. Luca repeatedly and say we dare KRISTAPS. Good Luck Daria. So yeah the clippers were to get like the Mavericks in the first round. I think they'd win that series. I don't think they're better than the rockets. The rockets are playing. I think that matchup is terrible for the clippers and the rockets are playing terribly right. Now's not a good time to be pro. Is that matchup? Terrible for the clippers Well they've lost both the Times they've Larraizar. They're one and two against the clippers. I think I also think. Here's reverend key in on that specific match. Give the bigger point. The thought process was the clippers would be the best defense in the NBA. And the reason. I pump the brakes on the clippers hype was. I just can't remember a defense post Jordan's bulls. That was a great great defense without a real rim-protector and what Jordan's Bulls had was arguably the three best perimeter defenders in the entire league and people said well clippers might have that same thing but the game has changed so immensely since then and so. We've seen the clippers. Is there not a great defensive team? They're good defensive. Team top ten defensive team right. Yeah but they were supposed to be the number one defense the them in Philly. Who's supposed to be those two teams philly once they got Horford and phillies all different masks for different reasons discounting ZUBEC- as a rim protect. Oh look he's got he's got problems but they're mostly like perimeter problems. He's not great defending pick and rolls. That's a huge problem team defensively but he is. I think he's been a decent rim-protector for this. So here's here's I guess. My other issue with the clippers is they have two of the best two way players in the league. Inqui- Paul George. No one can deny that. I I my issues with Kawhi unrelated to how good he is when he actually plays but all their other key guys are designated hitters. Patrick Beverley is stupendous. On one. End of the court Lou. Williams is great on the other end of the court if they were the same person..
AI Hiring, Never Retiring: Working in the 21st Century
"Hunting for a new job is one of the resolutions. A lot of folks make starting off the year and many hiring managers have new budgets. And start ramping up recruiting after the holidays slowdown right now the way most people go through that processes not very different from how it was done in the past checking for job postings online sending and cover letters and resumes but with all the data out there about each one of us. What's the future of hiring gonNA look like reporter Hookah shellman found out? It's a New Year for many of us. Time to look for new job your update you're linked in scrappy social media. And then if all goes as well you get an interview hoping to make a first impression but turns out some companies already have very good impression of who you are the amount of information that people have on candidates before they actually arrive to the interview which can freak some people out because the idea of the for instance our digital footprints reputation could be processed and translated into an inside or an inference of your potential or talent more than than it is. Today is quite that creepy in a way. Tomas Chamorro premise is a professor of psychology Columbia University and the chief talent scientists that manpower group. He's not talking about programs. That pre filter resumes linked in for keyboards and skills. This goes much deeper artificial intelligence. This can be used to discern your personality through traces you leave online. And he says that our personalities embedded in almost anything we do for example apple the music that you listen to says a lot about your typical emotional states your personality your level of interest in different things your curiosity leveler intelligence level things like uber or lift ratings say a lot about how cordell agreeable friendly or pleasant you are basically. There's some is if you nice to driver you'll be nice to work with their already. Artificial intelligence based tools that can generate personality profiles from people's linked. It didn't in seconds. So why would we care. Tema says personality and cognitive abilities are becoming more important for employers compared to self-reported skills and work experiences. That's because companies keep changing their business models and they need employees. That could keep up. You really need to accept the fact that if a lot of the the jobs of the future don't exist today. The best thing we can do is not train people for specific hard skills or knowledge areas or expertise but identify if I whether they are likely to be good learners in the future and whether they're adoptable companies could of course use traditional personality. Test ask you might have heard of meyers brakes or disc or the big five you know choosing descriptions like people look up to me. I tend to be a kind person I accept live as it comes. Do you agree or disagree. These tests have been used for decades and most generally accepted as reliable measures of personalities now tech startups have developed algorithms that use artificial intelligence to create a personality analysis instantly without asking any questions like the company crystal analyzes. The words phrases and data points on someone's Lincoln profile and correlates with personality test results from people who have similar similar words phrases and data points. They used a bunch of the tests that we talked about another company. Humanistic used the disappointment and the big five. Both companies are using natural language processing tools. But do they work. We started by running mannix algorithm over Thomas Twitter feed this is you and this is based on your twitter so your analytical cautious deliberate and then we looked at Lincoln using the same companies tool so now you are influential energizing an impulsive in here. You were an analytical cautious and deliberate shortly so I would say more impulsive Paul Save than cautious and deliberate and the two are of the opposite extreme you know so same algorithm very different results for the thing. There is an element. amando throw everything against the wall and see what sticks here okay. So what does the other company crystal say about him. Based on his linked in this is one is better direct assertive and competitive. I think is better than court shows. Delivered speak very directly or bluntly yes stay. Stay focused on one point. Not necessarily I mean I'd like to jump from one to assert yourself with confidence definitely not as spent the last ten years in writing books on how we shouldn't mistake confidence for competent. So please don't assert yourself with confidence. There are trade-offs here right and I the thing that this doesn't seem as accurate as a traditional science based or validated assessment despite these inconsistencies Tomas still things. There's something here but other experts in the hiring field a less forgiving. There's no uh-huh science behind this. There's no real research that supports deriving personality from social media behavior. This is John Scott. He's he's an organizational psychologist bills assessment tools so companies can find the best possible hires. It's something that we can discuss it cocktail parties but I would would never in a million years attempt to derive someone's personality from that and then use that to make predictions beached out to crystalline. Human Tick Kris told told us that there are no independent studies but they're validate their tests internally. They say they ask every user how accurate the predictions are so when Iran Thomas Profile through crystal. The system asked me if it was accurate. She mandich said that the adjectives describing people's personalities in their reports are subjective objective that they could change on the fly and they said you can't judge the accuracy of the system by looking at one profile. They're also disputed. You did that. There are no vigorous. large-scale visas studies on the subject and pointed to a research article comparing computer judgments of personality to human judgments creating personality profiles with the help of. Ai Remains controversial. But John says that technology can help in a different way. He says one of the best ways to predict how well someone will do in a given job is to test them doing their job in a virtual reality simulator. How do you predict future behaviour? You create the future. You place the individual in that future and present them with a variety of challenges and see how they do against those challenges us so imagine instead of having an interview where you talk about how well you can do the job. The employer hands. You had said twenty of right into the deep end. You could take CNN applicant for a CEO save for a an energy company so one possible scenario is that they're holding strategy meeting and everybody in the room gets texts that there it has been a cyber attack on their nuclear plant. What are you going to do? How are you going to face that? And that's not just your stakeholders in your customers. It's the government that gets gets involved in that national security so you could set up a press conference have the individual present their ideas on how they're going to manage this John says this virtual virtual job simulation could be automatically scored by an algorithm just like video game. Technology could work for any job though you could see how you can scale back to new entry level jobs as well providing different sorts of challenges associated with their roles in immersive simulation kind of a way and and John says the tech wouldn't have to stop their companies could combine. The are based headsets with wearable technology. which could record a job? Candidates biometric metric data nervous and you hardest basing they had set would be able to detect that those sweaty palms registered eye contact measurable and all of that data about things citing stress. You feel will be used to assess how well you suited for the job. Since most of us have very control over our bodies we actions. This idea seems pretty controversial. A simple rule in my view is if the criteria or riveria bowls or fuck doors. You are trying to use for your decision whether to hire someone or not are completely out of somebody's control. It's probably not ethical. You get into areas where it may start to feel more like a medical test and you cannot use a medical test at the front door. For Selection election purposes an Illinois law takes effect this month requiring companies to notify job. Candidates may use AI based video interview tools And legislation mandating companies to inspect their algorithms for bias is under consideration in Congress so eventually lawsuits relations could put put the brakes on this new world of artificial intelligence and hiring
"mannix" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"They are sports illustrate made incredible body of war. I really appreciate the integrity is well on great job. We Love Luckily Bank keys. Kris menace these employed by sports illustrated. The announcers got it informed. This is the crossover. Nba podcast. You have a problem with it. Build a team that can beat of hosted by the One and thank. God mannix all right. We'll come back to the crossover. Nba podcast you for joining us. This week. At a great episode lined up for you and guess who is in studio. We're actually sitting across which we were in fake studio together last couple I thought you didn't disclose that infringe don't but sometimes like the audio can be so little off where people like. You can't be in the same rights sounded like we're in the same room. Did it though better than like a phone call. I what I find funny is when you text me about coming on the pod and then you say oh. I'm going to be in New York will be in studio together. You think that that is a positive like oh which should be more enticing to come on the PODCASTS. Because I'll be there. We'll be in the studio together quite the contrary well. Hansel now before the podcast which were I would like to remove that from my mouth right if you want to hear more about that conversation. Check the boxing podcasts. Later in the week. It's can I join you? You're welcome to be a friend of the boxing pot as well dual pocket under some soccer to maybe ice Sacramento. Not believe that you were quite the basketball player too. I saw on the broadcast on Sunday. The side by side picture of you watch dominant. He'll watch every yes he's the reason I worked twenty one. Yes all right we should get the real stuff because no one cares about the dominique same level. Yeah Yeah Yeah thanks. Let's talk about Sunday's game. Kyrie Irving makes his return. I gotTa Tell You. This is why you are watching the broadcast. This guy was watching fertilizer John Collins and see what he was doing no. I don't know if you were just interested in watching that's on yes. I- nets on yes number one broadcast team in the NBA. Except route goes on takes a slight dip. But you know Brooklyn's my boxing broadcast partners. Well I know in gradients here. Arched number is is just the worst but believe that got kyrie. Irving makes his return. A lot of I was a little surprised he came back. Be Honest with you win. All at what point at what point like when the counter turn to January. It's like all right. We're now into two thousand twenty. The team is not championship contender. This is clearly a significant problem. Gone well past the idea that Cairo was ducking plank in Boston. That happened a month and a half ago Do you now realize had. This is your players. Don't duck especially guys like Kyrie. Kyrie wants to go back to Boston and tour fifty like rats. What he wants to write always what he wanted to do. But I was surprised like given the shoulder injury. It didn't sound like he was getting much better. But then all of a sudden a few days ago he's back practice doing five one five and now he's giving it a go. What was your reaction to Kyri? Making his return on. Well I think we learned a lot more information when he spoke to the media A few days into the new year in him basically telling us that he was struggling with this because it wasn't getting better and he was going to see different specialists. Who was trying to figure out what was going on. And then finally got a cortisone shot on December twenty fourth and. That's where the trajectory of things his progress his progress You know Just everything how he was going about his rehab started to improve and so I think just as soon as hearing he spoke he said he he he kind of Said. I'm going to give it a week and see how it feels he. Of course throughout all of this was trying to avoid having surgery In went in by all accounts what we were hearing once because he'd had been doing non contact drills and he'd been on the court he been doing a lot of things but just didn't feel Doctors include everyone that he was cleared for context so got. The cortisone shot was feeling better in in that week. The Nets due to their schedule had a couple good practices And he was tremendous and back to you know the Kyri as we saw the other night I will say this. I was not surprised that he played You never know. I think with injuries. I think all speculation people from the outside not knowing what's going on I think can be really irresponsible. So the fact that he did play I was what I was surprised by in just was tremendous and fun to watch and I know Atlanta's not a world beater and of course trae young not playing just how highly efficient he was how fluid he seemed how you look at US numbers. He was ten of eleven from the field. Played just under twenty minutes. So the the point is this all just he. He looked so comfortable and like he'd been playing You know over the course of the last effective. Heedless missed the last two months and so that to me was was like wow. He looked like he looked very surprising. Given how much time that he's because I would say that about any player anytime you're not on the court playing you would expect there'd be a transition period. Yeah look for the I think one of things that might help ease his transition back into playing for the team is back that they had bad. You know prior to him coming back. I mean what was it losses in a row before the Miami? Seven seven zero And this was like on top of November. They started win a little bit and all those stories came out about our here. The Nets numbers without Kyrie Irving here. Their numbers with Kyrie. Irving people would say while they better without CA- which always nonsense I mean the guy. It's all nonsense but I also in in I've spoken about this at a decent amount. I think none of that ever took into account so he played eleven games early on not took an account. How many moving. Parts and new part there were on the roster in it of itself so for any team any new roster compilation. You're going to have a process where it takes time for guys to get used to each other so I think throughout the course of that care sliver of course getting hurt Throughout the course of when they were playing well a lot of it to me was guys get like a Gareth getting more comfortable Taurean Prince. Getting more comfortable Spencer Dinwiddie was not good at the beginning of the season and then he sort of playing in an all star level and obviously some of this created opportunity need playing time however I think there was so much focus and emphasis on what they were with and without Kyri that it didn't take into account at all just by nature. A new team with new pieces sometimes takes hot. But that's always going to be the case with Kyrie. After what happened in Boston you know is always going to be a contrast between what he did with. The team does with him on the floor with him without on the floor and I would say for any not just any star more so though because like there's the as Boynton surges. Maybe the Boston the established. But it's kind of established. Sort of like I kind of looking at the Celtics are and the fact that Kemba lights with the Anti Kyrie in Boston personality. And saying like you know. Kyrie's got a lot to prove in season like this and nobody questions his talent but it's the chemistry stuff and one thing I'm looking for in the next month if he continues to play the passing right like before we went out of the lineup. And that's I think we're twenty-seventh in the NBA and passing and then he goes out and the passing improves. Like does the ball stick too much when Kyrie's in the floor because he can do some unreal things with the ball. But that's not what this team needs. You gotta get everybody involved. You GotTa Keep Spencer Dinwiddie on this train. That he's on You. GotTa get cares. Levert back into Bacteria guys like Jared Allen and Joe Harris. Get their touches like. That's a big thing to watch. I think for Cairo the next month. I think that's a big thing to watch. I think that's a big thing to watch for any team in any offense however in looking at that and I think that was another positive to draw from the game against Atlanta in just the first game bet just how well the ball moved how everyone was getting touches. Everyone was involved. There was a ton of balance In in terms of spreading that out I do think though there's a certain balance of we even looked at some numbers of usage rates and comparisons of what Spencer Dinwiddie was doing and how much the ball was hit in his hands. How many ISOS? The Nets have been utilizing whether it was spencer whether it was torn reprints. you name it even when. Kyrie was not playing so again. I think I think it goes to. There's different ways there's different kind of viewpoints of taking a look at the ball sticking or isolation plays or when guys are going one on one versus is this a part of the fluidity of the offense so I think that that that'll be a major thing but that's that's a part of Kenya. Choson the coaching staff's job. How do we make sure everyone is involved? Do you think that there's pressure on Kyrie too? I mean look not win at Milwaukee or even a Boston type of level but to to prove that you can be the man on a team that wins with his group. Life is three months. Three plus months left in the regular season. What kind of pressure to think is on? What should the expectations be for the nets team with Kairouan? I I think there's a difference between pressure. I think there's a there's differentiating factors between pressure between expectations between goals In what this team is trying to do and I think obviously with Kyrie back. I do think it's such a major factor. Curiously vert being back is well. I think the fact that those to their time coincided together being out is something to take note of the fact. That liver wasn't playing as well. I think this team believes I'm not sure. You know looking at the standings looking to schedule. How much time is left can? Can you end up catching their in? What the should have this up the eighth eighth eighth spot. Now right behind the spot stinks like the The seven seven there in the seventh seventh just moved to Ha- but they were but I think theoretically your five year about five games out of the six. I think you look at you. Know Five Games six year. Actually see your eight games behind number three Miami so looking at Toronto theoretically goes your way too I mean how would who's like ten or eleven in that spot? I mean how far they behind Kaga was ten. Charlotte is nine so you got Charlotte. Charlotte is nine and they tear in the All Star Team Charlotte in their five games behind seven police. Therefore they're they're the four and a half games behind Orlando so some wiggle room there. I mean I think it obviously think about making the playoffs but I think he I think you theoretically make you still in your heads I think you you. I don't know what pressure you would look at her. Expectations should be but that four spot is that four spot available that four spot open to. You might be like you. But that's my point like I. I'm not sure internally Where the goals would be set at this point. I think it's less about less about standings less about where you land in the east more about. Are we improving team? Are we collectively get all of your questions? That are still questions of. What is our offense? Look like how was our ball movement. How are we making sure that we're balancing out? We have a now this this depth of player. We looked Kenny Atkinson. Who was looking for bodies before and now he's able to comfortably go ten deep in his rotation How do we make sure everyone is playing at their best?.

Houston Rockets gear no longer sold on Chinese sites
"Well began on Friday with rockets general manager Darryl Lori putting out a tweet that was an image that expressed support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement the controversy began when the rockets Maury fired off this tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong that statement of support for hypocrisy protesters was seen as an affront to the teams Chinese fan base tweet was quickly deleted but the damage was already done Tillman for the her of the Houston Rockets this does the rockets very quickly teams owner tweeting more he does not speak for the Houston Rockets China reacted strongly they condemned Daryl's comments China's council the General in Huston urge the team to clarify and immediately correct mistakes any statement on Sunday is the NBA there was shock at just how big a story this has become and now we have a geopolitical incident that was affected really sparked with one tweet Chris Mannix you've been covering the story for sports illustrated do you have any idea why Daryl Morey tweeted support for Hong Kong all of a sudden no I've known Daryl Morey for a longtime he's an incredibly smart guy I don't know what was the impetus for the tweet and it's interesting that he would do that just because Daryl's been the GM of the rockets for a long time and Darryl knows full well the influence of the rockets in the NBA on China Darryl is the GM of a team that was the home of Ya Ming one of the biggest international stars ever so he knows exactly what kind of effect this is going to have and he went out there and did it all the same aside from China getting angry have there been any consequences for the NBA well ten cent which has a long standing deal with the NBA they stream the majority of the NBA Games they're responsible for the close to five hundred million viewers that are watching NBA Basketball in China they announced that they will stop showing Houston Rockets Games the Chinese Basketball Association which ironically is run by Ming at this point they said that they were cutting ties with the Houston Rockets its sponsors affiliated with China pulled away from the rockets so anything Chinese effectively severed their ties with the rockets in a very short period of time okay so China got mad the rockets owner tried to sweep it under the rug I saw rockets players trying to deal with this James Hardie it was like apologize we love we love no plane you know we appreciate the support that they give us individually in as an organization so we love you but how did the NBA itself react all the NBA's reaction wasn't great we reported the NBA statement saying we recognize that the views expressed the Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China which is regrettable it really this is supposed to be the woke league they did say in that kind of word salad of a statement that Darryl had the right to say anything he wanted but they said that he had to write saving educated on the matter and that rang a little hollow with some people so wasn't a very strong statement in the NBA face pretty swift backlash Senator Ted Cruz Texas Republican said the NBA is quote shamefully retreating in pursuit of big money Democratic presidential candidate who Castro says the US shouldn't allow American citizens to be bullied by authoritarian government they walk it back at the NBA walked that statement back very quickly so you'd you know Adam Silver who was over in Asia anyway as part of these international games that are taking place right now he made a much more forceful state in a statement that frankly better reflects I think what the NBA really stands for the long held values of the are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA Community and in this case they're more as the general manager of the Houston Rockets enjoys dat right as one of our employees I understand that there are consequences from that exercise of an essence his freedom of speech and we will have to live with those consequences in the NBA coaches like Steve Curry Gregg Popovich takes wrong positions on domestic issues Gregg Popovich was quoted calling Donald Trump a soulless coward wonder what the people sick about who votes good for him where they're line is how much they can take where does the morality and decency kick in NBA didn't have anything to say on that publicly so the NBA really can't take a position on Daryl morey saying what he said publicly so the NBA initially kind of bungling their reaction they recovered pretty quickly and put out a statement that I think better reflects positions how're the NBA state Vince perceived in China it seems like you know anything short of Daryl Morey being fired and his comments being disavowed is not going to satisfy the Chinese government the Chinese Basketball Association or anybody that might be involved with this story they came out with some statements of their own saying eh agreed with the NBA's position on this but the NBA has stood pretty firm and that's really all they can do at this point there's a good chance that the NBA loses some money as a result of this but in the grand scheme of things the NBA doesn't need that money to survive so it's a bad situation the end I would like no part of but it doesn't really affect their bottom line so who needs who more here does does the NBA China does China need the NBA more I would argue that China needs the NBA more than the NBA needs China I mean China can't walk back decades of NBA basketball being in Deuce to its population and more than a billion people the NBA proudly touted the number of people that play basketball in China it's three hundred million they talk about the number the watch basketball in China it's just under five hundred million about twenty one million people watch game six of the NBA finals this past year that's an astronomical number even for a domestic viewership you can't just take that away from people in not expect people to want it back there really isn't a alternative in China they have the Chinese Basketball Association but it's nowhere near the level of basketball that the NBA plays on these stars from the NBA from Lebron James James Harden to Steph curry they are close to household names in China people by their sneakers they wear their jerseys he's but it's still unclear exactly how far China's willing to take this do you think right now the NBA is regretting how open it is on speech I mean the NBA has proudly empowered its players to speak up to be political Lebron's spoken up a lot on race steph curry and some of the other warriors have spoken out against trump coaches give political speeches can the NBA walk that back when comes to China when it's so encouraged here no the NBA can't walk any of this back in they have to live with situations like this they simply can't turn around and create new policy that says players can't speak on political issues or social issues and frankly I don't believe the NBA would do that the NBA's organization has established itself as a progressive one knows just back in two thousand sixteen when the NBA pulled an all star game out of Charlotte because the League disagreed with the North Carolina Bathroom Bill they've Asian themselves as a league willing to take stands on these types of things frankly I think the NBA relishes the attention that it's players get for taking stands on issues like this so behind the scenes maybe there's some conversation taking place some reminders about just how much money is being brought in in foreign markets but overall the NBA's not gonNa stop anyone from saying anything about any particular issue the
Pastured poultry is vulnerable to climate change
"I'm doctor Anthony License and this is climate connections. Cows are not the only animals going out to pasture to meet the demand for more humanely raised chicken. Some farmers are now raising poultry outside in movable pens eating grass and bugs and getting fresh air and Sunlight Jeff Mannix is with virtual company which produces poultry feed and organic farm products. He says being outside is good for the birds but it also makes them vulnerable to extreme weather during drought. There are fewer insects for them to eat and it's harder for the chickens to stay cool. There's nothing green out there so if ever really down green grass and felt how cool it makes you feel in a drought year. We don't have that but too much rain can also stress chickens and the ground is wet. The poultry altria constantly going to be in a state of mild hypothermia as the moisture is drying off of their body their body core temperatures are not going to be at the right levels manning's encourages farmers to provide a rain shelter and get chickens up off the cold wet ground even if it's up on slats pallets or whatever they're going. GonNa be a lot more comfortable less stressed more healthy so he says pasture raised chickens can thrive but as the climate changes farmers must act to protect their flocks climate connections is produced by the Yale Center for Environmental Communication.

Without Kevin Durant, Game 4 is must-win for Warriors
"Talking NBA finals with Chris, Mannix Klay Thompson who missed game three will play game four Kevin Durant whom this the last eight games will not play game. Four Steve Kerr said there's a good chance Katie playing game five or six Klay Thompson spoke about what it would mean if miss the finals entirely. Well, it suck if Kevin can't come back. I mean, I still think we'd have a good chance to win the finals. But obviously. That takes a huge hit. Think it would make us to cut favor anymore without him, you know teams very good. We just love the candor of the Golden State Warriors, like as a team like Klay, whatever. But dream on Jay handed. Steph is usually pretty Cantu. I love that team like is this. Well Kerr's as well, who is the favourite in this series of Katie doesn't return? Oh, it's oh I mean, I still again, we can have different conversation on Monday. If Klay Thompson comes back and looks exactly like the Klay Thompson, we saw before the injury. But if he is significantly slowed it's impossible to look at this series and say Toronto isn't the favorite now we discussed this yesterday. I disagree with Jeff Van Gundy said when he said that this war is team wasn't a playoff team, but it certainly isn't a final team, and it's probably not a team that gets out of the Western Conference as currently constituted so without Kevin Durant. And with a hobble Klay Thompson, Toronto is, is a clear favourite in my eyes. Tonight. What's important is where is clay and not only wears he during the game.

NBA Reveals Refs Missed 17 Calls for Rockets, 11 for Warriors in Game 1
"About officials during the NBA playoffs is nothing new, but the rockets apparently took it to the next level yesterday. Preparing a report to show that the refs cost them a trip to the NBA finals last season. We'll see how all this noise about bad calls affects tonight's game two and the rest of this series. But there's no easy answer. When it comes to officiating. James harden, something we talked about yesterday at great length. He's physical. He's unorthodox. He draws. Contact. He likes contact. He's always going to get a lot of calls. But the question is is he getting the right calls. It's important to remember. None of this is new because players and coaches have been complaining forever. You can Google Tim Duncan Joey Crawford or watch Phil Jackson, Pat, Riley work, the officials, and if you think Hardin is hard to officiate imagine trying to officiate a game, which akilah Neil. There's no perfect solution here, and you can't blame the rockets for at least trying to gain an advantage here a tight competitive series, and it may come down to how it's called. And it won't be the first time for sport. That's very difficult to officiate Steve Kerr had a little bit of fun with this yesterday at his press conference. He had this to say about fouls Kolding game on the focus should be on. Team's plane. Extremely hard me watching the he'll bowl teams just got after and competed. But you know, we just watched the tape upstairs. You don't think there were ten calls. We thought we got fouled in this is out goes, and every coaching illegal tell you the same thing, you watch the tape, and you hope man, that's that's. It's the nature game. It's it's very very difficult to officiate an NBA game. There's all kinds of gray area. And you know in the modern game. You know, a lot of players have have gotten really good at deception creating contact. Okay. Steve Kerr thrown out some verbal bouquets their complementing the officials. How would he feel if they lost game one? You know, they missed a lot of calls out there. The NBA has this two minute video review were they look at the calls. They missed and they admitted that they miss him calls in this game. My problem with the the rockets is let's live in the now, let's not be looking back to game seven last year. I got a problem with that. You gotta be Golden State. And it's now it's not you know, you guys caused us the NBA finals last year. Okay. How did you guys shoot? You miss twenty seven consecutive three pointers in that game. Was that the officials? Yes, that's because they were fouled apparently apparently all of them. What do they shoot like eight for forty four from three point range in game seven last year on your home floor? Yes. You didn't have Chris Paul? You should've won that game. But don't live in the past. And if you wanna bring attention to this now now all of a sudden, you're going down into your basement into your lab, and you're looking at all this. Video and say look at all of these miss calls. You had. Okay. The officials. Are you saying the officials are favoring the Golden State Warriors? Are you saying that's what I want to hear are these just bad officials is their favouritism?
