"Professor. Congress is precisely only a fool a Marxist forward, try to refashion the centerpiece of all man's humanity, the alpha and the omega around something like class for Karl Marx or race for the modern CRT advocates. What could be more demeaning. What could be so contrary to Judeo Christian values? That's what Marxism does, from its classical form to its modern American forms were less Children of God than products of class, race and gender. Here live in quotes the very worst of them. Richard Delgado jeans Stefan Sick and D a N D. Angelo for whom races everywhere and everything as his racism. As the antidote to this dehumanizing world. You live in quotes Dr Wyatt T. Walker, who was very close to representative Excuse me to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. And in his essay in 2015 when he wrote was Steve Kalinsky. Steve Kalinsky. Walker stated. Today. Too many remedies such as critical race theory, the increasingly fashionable post Marxist postmodernists approach. It analyzes society has institutional group power structures. Rather than on spiritual or 1 to 1 human level are taking us in the wrong direction. Separating even schoolchildren into explicit racial groups. And emphasizing differences instead of similarities. Unlike Dr King's vision of judging people by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin. Walkers. Views of civil rights were rightly based on religious values, humanism, not Marxism and critical race theory. The roots of critical race theory are planted in entirely different intellectual soil. Walker out Begins with blocks with each person assigned to an identity or economic bloc, as in Marxism. Yes, says percent Professor as in Marxism. That is an Americanism. That's what Mark Levin understands so well, especially given previous works of his such as rediscovering Americanism. American marks and is quintessentially UN American. People in America professing this noxious junk, maybe Americans in terms of citizenship. With all the rights and liberties and protections afforded thereof. But they are not Americans the way the founders of this country envisioned. America is less a place that an idea, said Ronald Reagan. It is indeed The ideas of America as it was formed by the direct antithesis of the ideas. A car marks. And his perverse heirs who today pushed their insidious new forms of American Marxism. Especially at our awful universities. And what Mark Levin shows above all is how un American American Marxism really

"L. A county became the first in the nation to hit more than one million cases since the beginning of the pandemic. I see you. Availability remains at 0% at most hospitals.

A, and she recovered from having Cove it back in October. Welcome to press play, Cherie and Welcome to L A. Thank you, Madeline. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you and this is your fourth station for covert treatment. I believe you were in Atlanta. Miami in Texas. How does the situation in l A compared to those cities? It's really rough. It was probably most comparable to Miami. Honestly, um, is, um I see you capacity is just it's beyond capacity. Um you know him, Okay. It was a 10 bed. I see you, and then it was expanded to 20. And now there are 35. We're still expanding. So it serves a community of 1.8 million in Compton. So it's It's really hard and Nations are The communities being Rod's very heavily. So it reminded me of a lot of Miami. Just limited resource is and people coming in really late in coming in. Really, really Siddiq. Oh, right, because they're putting off treatment because they know that there's very little capacity, right? Right. So people are coming in already, you know, with Multiple organ systems failing. Wow. So when you're comparing it to Miami, what do you mean by that? Take us back to the Miami days and what it looked like I was in Miami over the summer, and that's actually where o'clock clothing on while I was there. I mean, I didn't cover till October, but it was in Miami. It was it was like working. The ICU is normally pretty stable, like you is not like working in the ER. So when I've been er nurse, too, but I preferred ICU because it's always controlled. There's this uncontrolled is done stable, multiple cold's going off with multiple patients. It's a war zone on DATs. What Miami felt like and L a certainly Was very reminiscent of that period of time in my career where the patients are so unpredictable, and it's just when you have multiple people coding at the same time. It's very hard to give them the resources they need, because you're stretched very thin. And so that is what you're seeing now in L. A All right, um, lovely. We have PPE here, Which is my blessing. Just because Miami we were given one gown for patient per day. I was in one in 95 masks for three weeks. I get on in 95 mask every time I come on shift, so I'm grateful for that here, and I can use gowns one time and one time out. I'm grateful that you know people have generously donated to this hospital on we have peopie. But the patients are very, very stick. You know, we have patients in their thirties there. We have mothers. We have fathers. We have just people and it's really sad. You're on zoom calls, and they're saying goodbye and It's very hard. Were you expecting that? MLK has been on CNN. They've been told it the epicenter of the epicenter in L. A On. Guy knew all this going into the assignment, but I think because I had been in Atlanta for a little bit, and that's home. I kind of got used tol like, you know the stability of working in a stable covert unit again and So I was a little triggered when I got here. I had to take a moment to kind of be compressed because, um It took me time, you know, especially after having cold it, you know, to see those patients like that, cause I certainly thought that could have been me too, too. So, um my first night was rough. Umm Cold's going off and I looked like I was, um, orientation precept. It was amazing. All the nurses and staff physicians are amazing at the hospital it working so hard and Even stretched so thin that they said they sent in the National Guard to help us as well. So it's The first night I had to take a moment of my precept and say, Hey, I just need to take a breather. Get out my Mass because I felt those flashbacks coming back from working in Miami and And so many people die in a day. You know, it's really hard. Yeah, it really is. Especially since as you say, we saw these images you know, on the news from Miami over the summer and in other cities as well, New York, Of course in the spring. And yet, here we are. Almost a year into it. You hit the nail on the head. You know, it's like you think you're prepared and you never are. You know, I remember Washington when it was happening December in China, And then I watched in Italy and I watched the New York and Hey, And here we are, Like you said, a year out coming up on one year and and there's no break. It's just you feel like you don't get any respite. No. No rest from from the chaos and I mean, we're even in Texas. When I was in Texas. They had a mobile morgue Did er there? And, um You know, it's and I'm hoping with the vaccines rolling out, you know things will we kind of get herd immunity, But even nurses, there's physician. There's people that are very skeptical about it.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy
"Today is Martin Luther King Day a day when we look back on Dr King's commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience to advance civil rights and reflect on his famous 1963 speech delivered here in D, C. I have a dream. A little Children. One day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin. But by the content of their character, I agree. Following last year's death of a black man, George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and this month's deadly attack on the U. S Capitol by supporters of President Trump include including far right extremists. Is Dr King's dream still alive? Well, joining us now to talk about that Maya King with politico who covers politics, race and campaigns. My It's always good to talk to you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. Thanks for having me. What might Dr King think of the protests going on today? How far have we really come on racial issues as we mark his birthday. I think it's king were alive today he would be able to draw a number of parallels between his time in his experience and activism and what we've seen really over the past 12 months, with massive protests and civil disobedience, calling out Systemic racism and police violence on But of course, the current threat that we face of violence largely led by white supremacist groups, who have felt largely emboldened by a number of Government leaders of these are things that Martin Luther King also warned us against, and said that you know if America really did continue to try to advance on the platform or legacy of racism and racial terror. That that could cause issues for more than just racial minorities. But the broader community that we see across this country and I think that's especially evident, of course, looking at just how tight security is around Wednesday's inauguration.

C And my former broadcasting is to connect you with the here and now to what has transpired in the past. Because history keeps repeating itself. I know this was the most important election of all time. We've never had rioting and insurrection like we've had in the takeover of the capital recently, and with the black lives matter, and TIF marches, riots, looting that took place in the summer. You couldn't be More hopelessly wrong about that, especially if you personally lived through the sixties and the seventies. But let me break another bubble as we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr here today on W A. B C. This myth about the Kennedy Theeighties of Camelot. We've seen a lot of that dissipate over the years because we recognize that like any human beings, JFK, RFK had flaws. Now. Unfortunately, JFK was first to be assassinated. And then Martin Luther King Jr and then RFK. All three of them are iconic figures in the history of America. Through the fifties and the sixties. Until they departed this plane because of assassination. But they have quite the legacy. Fact, a lot of people don't know that RFK was counsel to the committee to investigate communism in America. Right. He was a key proponent. He was no Jill McCarthy or Roy Cohen, who became the number one go to guy for the growing power of Donald Trump. At some point, they sure Comey's under Every sofa in every house in America, but he was in And you know, I don't know if many of you know That they were not friends with Martin Luther King Jr at all. Now JFK who had been a congressman in Massachusetts and groomed by his father. Become the U. S senator and then eventually the president of the United States, he wrote the book profiles in courage. About how guys had broken from segregation. Elice tendencies like Sam Houston in Texas, right. The leader of Texas is independent, strive against Mexico and Santa Anna. He was featured. Another person was featured. He won a Pulitzer Prize for that, even though JFK didn't write the book. His daddy. Had somebody else write it and JFK got all the credits because this was part of the plan. Help make him the president of the United States. Now, As senator of Massachusetts, you would think he leaned lust right? He certainly wasn't a conservative. 1957 while shitting in the Senate. As a Democrat, he voted against Eisenhower's Civil Rights Act 1957. He voted with the segregation of lists. From the South, Strong Thurman and mostly Democrats at that time, because say that was a Democratic stronghold. And why did JFK vote against Eisenhower this civil rights act because he didn't want to anger Those who believed in segregation in the south because he was seeking the 1960 nomination. So it wasn't about You know, equality for blacks, it was all about becoming president. All about becoming president. And then all of a sudden, in October of that year, he was running against Vice President Nixon. And by the way, Vice President Nixon had a great relationship with Martin Luther King Jr he met with Martin Luther King Jr at the White House. They often times would have phone conferences because, remember the Republican Party at that time was the party of Civil Rights. James Brown. That's right. I got ants in my pants, and I need to dance if you have a red jet or have any magazine. He was beloved by Republicans. He was a Republican. Then you had at that particular time. Jackie Robinson, who was the iconic figure he was a Rockefeller Republican. So the Republicans were the party of integration. Democrats with a party of segregation. So this is what happened right before the election. This is October on month before the election with Vice President Richard Nixon. Martin Luther King Jr. Is dragged to jail on a trumped up traffic charge, enjoyed you, and they wouldn't release him. And his wife at the time, Corretta Scott King was pregnant. And J. F case advisor said. Call Corretta Scott King, ask her how she's doing. What can you do to try to extricate Her husband, Martin Luther King Jr from jail. And he received a tremendous amount of attention. RFK, his campaign manager, advisers, soon to become attorney general had suggested he not call Corretta Scott King. You write down anywhere in the history books? No, of course not. Of course, now is he aged Camelot? How dare you say that? The problem is Vice President Nixon did not also call for some reason he who had had regular communication when Martin Luther King Jr did not call Coretta Scott King. Find out how Martin was doing in jail and what he could do his vice president and to try to move up the legal process and get him released from jail, if nothing more than on bail, And that was the story. It was carried throughout the black community in the south, where they had obviously registered voters who would normally vote Republican. They would've voted for Nixon as he had voted for Eisenhower and Nixon twice before, and this time, some of them broke ranks. And voted for JFK. Now JFK won the election for president by the mirror stuff majority such than 1%. When you bisected it and dissected it, it was because he come or of the black vote. Richard Nixon would have become president of the United States. Now you would have thought, right? JFK with a great speech upon his inauguration. What can you do for your country? Would have had my Luther King Jr invited right? He had other civil rights leaders invited In the mountain, not Martin, Lucy King Jr. He was on the outside looking in.

Celebrating the life and times and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Because it is the federal holiday Martin Luther King Jr Day and we are going to do that. But one thing I will not do. It's what I have heard on so much of talk radio and talk television. And I guess it's because a lot of people really never studied the life and times of Martin Luther King Jr. Just maybe on the peripheral side. But if I hear another question, what do you think Martin Luther King Jr would have thought? Excuse me. He was assassinated Back in 1968 in Memphis. You know how many years later? It is. What would you have thought of black lives matter? Well, he had a lot to say about challenges and insurrections black civil rights groups in 1966 2 years before he died. That's somewhat had a manifesto similar to Black lines, Man and now So we can look at what he actually did in his life in times. Unless you're a swami or a suit, Say, Errol, you're able to read the tea leaves. Why do you ask a question of what do you think? The doctor Martin Luther King Jr would have done what do you think he would have said about today? What do you think he would have thought? One thing in the many guests that we will bring to the airways today, I can assure you they will not be like some of those that I have heard not gonna mention which programs on TV and radio had them.

They'd had one winning season thirteen and they've been one of the worst franchises the past couple of years after making it to the afc championship game and blaming very competitive against tom brady in the new england patriots on the road ever since then. They've been downright awful. So this isn't you know. The jacksonville is one of the rare. Nfl markets where the community just doesn't live and breathe and die by what happens with their football team. So you you you're not going to beep still generating a lot of interest if this team is four and twelve five eleven four and twelve and three of thirteen extra four or five years but a reminder sitting up there talking about my philosophy whatever man you know so the number one. They're not gonna be happy with the coach and number two. They're gonna even born unhappy with the owner. Who said that. This eight okay to circumvent the rooney rule because he really had no interest in hiring minority so he was in. He was in cahoots and he was walking the talking. And working with meyer concerning this even when doug marrone was still coaching the team now look doug marrone was not going to keep the job so when you're one in ten one hundred eleven. Fps see the writing on the wall. So in that regard. I i don't blame the owner for you. Know talking about eight man go out there. Let's start you know getting together and seeing what who wounded rule or not so. I get that.

Urban Meyer to keep health in mind as new Jacksonville Jaguars coach
"A jacksonville is the best job opening in the nfl. right now. they've got eleven total picks in the upcoming grab first round picks one hundred million dollars in salary cap space. They have the number one pick so all unless unless someone is as a complete and utter fool. that are going to be Drafting trevor lawrence. Whether number one. Pick and trevor lawrence. It's supposed to be a generational great. Come on man come on tomorrow to mark. Among on if sean con come on man is about time you get serious if you can go ahead and get yourself but yourself in the position where hey you know what. We've got a really good thing going here. In terms of the future we covered that bear. And we've got all of this to work with you know. How many times would love to be in that position. Already mentioned the fact in the nba raphael stone in general managers. In general in that league you ask them what would you rather have in terms of rebuilding program. All of these guys who say man. I'm a multiple picks a lot of salary cap space to go ahead and do my thing. Would you get that injectable even with a hard salary cap now. Jacksonville isn't the same as far as free agent destination as a los angeles or the bigger markets. But still you're talking about. The state of florida was no income state tax. You're speaking about ill a situation where you're gonna be working with a generational great quarterback possibly. Hopefully i mean there's a lot of things you have a really really good young talent on that team that a lot because the team one and fifteen but there's there's some ambers within the within the the fire that you can That you can work with. I mean it should be very attractive job for a gm but if a gm any worth of any you know any worth is going to go in there and you're going to be talking about. Yeah i'm going to be in charge of the roster. I mean come on man you know the next bill polian next ron. Woolfe is not going to be like yes. That's pretty good and then since you already hired the couch you gotta make sure that the coach in the general manager president of football operations are together as one as far the philosophy is concerned. And we don't know where myers philosophy because well. He's never coached. He's never coached in the nfl so he might have a philosophy all this kind of stuff. What is it based off of. It can be based on what he did in college because college in the nfl completely different animals. Yeah you might have a philosophy of how you deal with people in college. What when you're dealing with people in college. They're eighteen to twenty two years old when you're going to be different of course and you know this coming central tell you. It's a lot of different dealing with grown men who have mortgages who are building their brands. Who have kids who have other responsibilities lot different way. You work with them. Sure in a college situation. You are of the defacto you are. You are the maker you are the guy you are the when i say jump you answer. How high when i say run through brick wall put your head down and go through that brick wall inc a college. You can get away with that stuff in the. Nfl is not. You're not coach. Employees i mean. This isn't supervisor employees working together. This is a collective understanding in terms of where we're going so yeah you wouldn't have any philosophy and you can have. You can try to find players that are into fit that philosophy but how rigid is that philosophy going to be. If you're urban meyer in college will you can go ahead and you can recruit anybody who you want to. You can text. You can call and you can do all these things and you can go ahead and develop a relationship over the years so you can even have a better understanding it. This young man is going to be able to fit the philosophy that you have in college. You can do that shit and the nfl you can't and the nfl is a business. And if you speaking about philosophy you better think about the philosophy. A win. Because i used to do all that bullshit about. Yeah you know. I bring these young men into the league. And you know these guys are young and some of these come from underprivileged backgrounds and these guys never have a checking account before. These guys don't know how to do this and these guys don't know how to do that so for me as a coach especially being a black coach with these kids coming into the nfl coming in basically as kids even though there are twenty one twenty two years old. I feel it's a responsibility for me to show them the ways of live and the show them how to do things the have them grow and mature of by the time that they retire that they'll be able to have a foundation for them to be successful one.

"They would two and fourteen. I basically he was done now. He's sort of off the grid off broadway trying to revitalize the ucla program. Mike riley was a guy gone. Eight and fourteen in two season at oregon state before being hired as head coach by the san diego chargers. Don't ask me why hiring team after the first disastrous season with ryan leaf at quarterback. So maybe he was brought into a large mature into mentor. In to make a quarterback ryan leaf. Well that didn't work. San diego improved the eight eight nine hundred ninety nine but you can go out and party like ninety ninety nine but they eight eight thousand ninety nine but then they went one in fifteen in two thousand and then after going five eleven two thousand and one of the spanos like yes. Are you gotta go somewhere. Somebody who asked span those room only that team. You gotta go. Steve spurrier of the washington snyder skins. I mean here's a guy came in with like yeah. I don't understand what the workers are hard. I'm just gonna come into here. We'll play a little golf or pulling sixty eight hours a day. Who didn't florida. You have this guy for a new orleans saints. He spends what three hours a day. Seven days a week and phil room and then this office trying to get a game plan who not me. These currier genius Coming in you know. I can handle. There's no problem y'all see will. I didn't florida who well. Yeah how that works out for you. Steve brought most of his coaching staff. From gainesville you though. They had a little nfl experience. They brought in. Danny werfel chris. Dory lab replicate what is in the. Nfl this is played in the nfl. Played for the buccaneers at quarterback. In a punter michel. Unless you wasn't gonna work so the first year with the funding and opened right finished seven and nine twenty fifth scoring. but you're superman. My mister c's uber genius in terms of that nonsense then washington when five eleven to two thousand and three and they were like yeah time to bail because guess what steve. There's a reason why these guys spend eighteen to twenty three hours a day studying film and putting together game plans and doing all that kind of stuff because in the nfl is all about perry. And when you're at florida yeah you can go ahead and the twelve games that you play. You can win none of those games just based on the loan. Yes when you have the type of talent that you had a florida and you're out there playing the florida. Em's and you're out there playing the vanderbilts and you're out there playing the mississippi in the mississippi states. Yeah you can step on the field with a tell you got roll the football out there really game fifty six to seven but guess what when you're knee. Nfl and you're playing the new york giants and because of your funding offense. You're gonna have a tight end trying to go one on one in terms of blocking michael straight and its prime. Guess what's going to happen when you have a guy in danny were full. Who can't make it in. The nfl throws drew brees nimble liked by coach vic. I guess what's going to happen. You ain't gonna win football games. You ain't going to be successful. So that was the deal. The jury still them clip kingsbury. But that offense is rolling in arizona. Get kyle murray kill you. Keep doing that stuff. Matt rule mean he burned the more traditional offense and runs a more traditional type of nfl base philosophy. But these coaches man come in the state. I'm not saying that's urban meyer's position but history shows us not. I'm not even going back to. But wilkinson let the cardinals or lou holtz with the with the jets or bobby Trina with the latest thousand. I'm not even talking about those. You want me to keep going college coaches who just didn't get it done. I mean there's a lot of them and they'll be sitting there talking about carol. Pete carroll was a coach in the nfl. I with new england and the jet before he came back and became a coach in seattle after building a dynasty and usc. He got a job at usc because he needed the paycheck and he'll coach and then he turned out that he was really good at coaching in the college game but ultimately shit was kind of like. Yeah i'm ready to get back into I'm ready to get back to the pros so you have to have the type of pro spirits in my opinion never mired having and he's talking about bringing coordinators from college. You make sure you get multiple tornado who've had head coaching experience on your staff with a for two years until you finally get the hang of things but we'll see.

"Lou. Holtz steve spurrier and we know how that one so saving finished thirteen seventeen with the dolphins from oh five six before taking the alabama job the turned out to be pretty good for him and do whole finished with a three and ten record with the new york jets in nineteen seventy six interesting story. I read an ringer about college coaches going and getting an opportunity to coaching approach. It was like midway through the season with the jets. Wholesome like you know what man this this shifting from me. i'm a. I'm a college coach was born coach. College in the sooner the season is over a first chance i get. I'm getting the hell out of here. Then later on he was like you know what i'm gonna give it another shot because i've learned from my mistakes and now i know that i should have treated these guys like. Oh i don't know men. Is it a college kids and you know up. Give these guys a little bit more input into what we're doing but by that time his reputation in the nfl has been so tarnished that He was done with that. And of course. These spurrier was my washington snyder skins. He coached that team. From o-3 returning the coach south carolina. He just twelve and twenty signed him. Five years seventy five years thirty five million dollar contract and he couldn't wait to get out of that. Get on that gig. So i'll talk about that a little bit later on so we'll see but none of these guys has been asked successful. Spurrier holtz will save but other than saving holtz burger. I mean they hadn't had these success willing championships as urban meyer. Did but it's it's an interesting. It's an interesting experiment as a little flavor to jacksonville as a little flavor to next season's. Nfl schedule in season. So the wouldn't red flag about meyer. Being successful coach in one major problem on wise partnership will be successful. I think is because of this health problems. We this is the guy who burns the candle. The both end. You don't change your especially when you're fifty six and you have that type of winning and success now you can sit there and convince yourself that you know what i understand that. I'm not gonna have the success that i did in college. I understand. i'm not going to be willing. Eighty five percent a much football game. I understand that. I won't be having the ability to go ahead and do the recruiting and bringing the players that i really wanted to bring in. I know that. I know that there's a hard salary cap in the nfl. While i can spend fruitfully as much as i wanted to in college like a us Some perks shall we say to bring in some recruit from college. Even though that might be bending the rules of the ncaa just the bit so You know all of those things. Come into play. And like i said it's easy to say that now but when you jacksonville and your one is six. And he's a seems to be no end in sight is meyer. Who again will want close games. Go fucking nuts mentally and all that type of jerry west complex in terms of being able to handle stress. Is he going to be able to go ahead and continue to do what he's doing. He stepped down from ohio state. In december of twenty eight team the last time he's actually coached to game. He stepped down from the gig particularly because of health issues. He's been most of that season of pain on the sideline because of assist which caused him aggressive headaches throughout the year and then you have to suspend him for first three games of the twenty eighteen season for how before he handled multiple accounts of domestic violence involving assistant coach. Zac smith the guy was like well. You know he was a great guy. Who is father blah blah blah on loyalty and then the other guys upbeat numbers wife really. You're going to go down that route. I mean you late in columbus anymore where you'll have sycophants sitting there. S okay michigan. Beats of women by us. You know going to be flying in the nfl especially the way. They're cracking down on this stuff right now correctly. So so all of these things man. He's to let them be dealing with. He told you sports and twenty eighteen when he was being asked about coaching in the nfl said that could never work at a place. I see some of these guys for records because the nfl. So even some of these guys are record is seventy four fifty eight. That could never do that. Shit seventy four fifty eight you doing. Well hell if you singing over five hundred damn good. So if he's going to be talking about losing his mind something like that. This is going to work your reminder. So how long does he. How long does he plan on coaching here. Eventually he's going to run ragged the men's fifty six years old. Eventually he's going to Know the personality he is. He's not built their vehicle meeting in an nfl coaching job. Seventy four fifty eight. Continue to a louis been if you're not mentally strong enough to deal with this kind of nonsense and how urban meyer is fifty six now. How long can he coach. How long does he want to coach. I mean we see guys like pete carroll and bill bella. Check bruce arians. They're all over sixty-five seem to be doing well. Carol is going to be seventy guy. Looks like he's in his fifties. I wish i had that type of energy bill. Belichick looked like he coach for a couple of more years. Bruce arians i mean these guys all are great for me. Nfl head coaches all. over sixty. Five mike zimmer as a right now still the head coach in minnesota and you re vic fangio girl over sixty ron rivera. john ball. John gruden frank. Right mike mccarthy sean payton are all between the ages of fifty five and fifty nine years old now rivera just went through cancer but he seems to be all these guys for. Nfl head coaches seemed to be looking good for h. m. You look at these guys. As i mentioned before rivera and harbaugh and grooten right the needle. Look at those guys. Don't like those guys only fifty something years old like seventies. Yeah it's it's gonna be interesting is going to be very interesting windows world of sports on your host when wallace. Oh glad that you could be with us. He spent seven years at ohio state. Speaking about meyer spent seven seasons. I know how state six seasons at florida to utah. Won a bowling green young man at that time for seventeen seasons. He's taking a couple of years off and he's only fifty six years old. I mean he's still relatively a young guy who got into coaching. A wonder can. Shall we say for being a successful. As he was at the age that he was the worst record he's ever had in his coaching career. Is that florida. Two thousand and seven were physically. He shut down because the losing four and two thousand seven and then eight and five in twenty ten. I believe what year it was. I think it might have been t-boz last year. I think where he said he was going to retire. The pressure with too much of which is getting too much for them. These the the responsibilities a winning all the time so for my or maybe the fact that you know what. Jacksonville is not expected this catego- sixteen and win the championship. In the first couple of years maybe they'll take some of the Anxiety off of them but then again if you're sitting there three and eight three and eight. It's still going to be three and eight.

"Think it was a fair deal. I think raphael stone the gm of the of the youth rockets. You did a great deal. Good job under the circumstances that were given to them now. Marston of the new york times reported that the sixers had two ways to improve their offer when they were speaking about improving about the trailer. James harden either. They were gonna offer more picks pick swaps or the other one was too involved first year first year. First round draft. Pick tarries maxine. Maybe that will of sweeten the deal a little bit more. But then again the seventy sixers said no there were willing to offer simmons but not maxi once again was the twenty first overall pick in the two thousand twenty nba draft. So that's what's time reported. But there's a new report coming out that i was like no i once again. I don't give a damn. I'm not going to be working. I'm not going to be doing anything with daryl morey which is that's the case then that's You know that being derelict in your duties as an owner. And if i were the houston rockets fan base that become pissed off while yes we got a pretty good deal but if you're telling me that he didn't want to do a deal. Which included ben simmons. Just because you're mad at daryl morey with the fuck you doing man so again if you re one report by mark stein is very good mark. Stein mark stein. He's about it was tiring max seep the unwillingness for seventy sixers to give up our maximum which killed the deal other report saying no. It wouldn't have made a difference so who knows who knows who knows according to giovanni of the athletic. Brian windhorst marc spears of. Espn 'cause now we're speaking about well. It's been out there. It's pretty public. The seventy sixers have been simmons on the tray. Blogging since the trade didn't happen. What are the what the relationship between the organization. The coach and ben simmons. I mean how do you go back to simmons like all right. Give us give us your all please when you were actively looking to trade me. When if it wasn't for i don't know hostilities between the gm and the owner of the other team or tires maxi or whatever but basically you were willing to give away now. You want me to come back and be like yeah. I believe seventy sixers red white and blue. Go fuck you so that was. Maybe the next story line that we can talk about. How the trade. That didn't go through going to affect the seventy sixers but hey it seems like according to spears went horse in a very vardon of the elec that simmons is happy not to be traded. He did he wanted to stay in philadelphia. So did you don't look like that Potential mountain will be nothing more than a mole hill. So simmons is happy to be in philadelphia where he wanted to stay all along. I guess there's gonna be no hard feelings moving forward. We'll find out Going in the future. Also it's a situation where. Hey doc rivers is going to have to do with thing in terms of being that guy who connects with the player to again. Assad some of the ego of ben simmons. It's not like oh you're the fucking free old mentally feel basketball players amen. If it that was a situation. I think a lot of us would be like damn i mean you know. Could y'all like kiss my ass for this. Y'all tell me how great i am could. Y'all bullshit me with the. Hey you know the fact that you're being wanted showing how great your i mean we. Can you do something for. I deserve that at least at the very least. Just don't be like yeah we try to trade in. You didn't so go ahead and suit up and play and keep your mouth shut.
