"That they were in after the Celtics trade, all their Pixar gone, they have no incentive to tank, they will try to remain competitive, to which I say number one, that depends on who's running the team. And who is the lead decision maker, because the last time they did this, they actually showed no real interest in remaining competitive. They had three sub 30 win seasons, including a 21 season and a 21 win season. They decided correctly, I think, that the picks that are out the door are a sunk cost. We could not care about the optics of giving Boston the third pick in the first pick in the fourth pick or whatever it ends up being because that's over. We can't turn back time. If it's best for us to stay if the team building is such that we get bad, we can still find picks on the margins the way we found the levert pick and the Allen pick and we so I don't think it's necessarily true that well they won't tank. They'll try to remain competitive because they're picture out the door. The second thing is Durant is so damn good that they can get everything they want in a Durant trade. They can get players who help them now and picks and swaps that help them replenish what they've lost. So let's extend it out of Phoenix in Miami and out of this three team trade universe. Where else should they be looking? Where else did I have on my own ideas? But where else should Sean marks be calling in the next, well, he's already calling. I mean, I said, I think there are four realistic teams. The other two teams are teams. You talked about the when this previously came up, and that's New Orleans in Toronto. And Scotty Barnes is obviously your first request with Toronto, but part of what makes the raptors who attracted for a trade like this is even if they say no to Scotty Barnes, there's some other guys who could be workable centerpiece in OG and Nino or Pascal siakam. Toronto is my first call. Set it before, say it again. Scotty Barnes is my first request because I get a guy who I think certainly the raptors think might be a future superstar. Rookie of the year, 20 years old, whatever he is, all of that. And I could see the raptors saying, well, he's so good. That all were attached to him as Gary Trent junior and the picks in the swaps that you're going to want. Whether it's three picks, three swaps, three picks, two swaps, three picks, four swaps. A lot of picks are going to have to come because Scotty Barnes is great as he is as a rookie. And then Kevin Durant walks in the door, and he's got in an OB siakam, a true van vliet. All these guys, that team is the favorite, maybe to win the championship, the moment it's constructed. And I think the raptors have to consider that. I'm not sure they would do it, but they're so loaded around Durant. In this fake scenario that I've made up, that they'd have to consider it. I, on the other hand, think the Cavaliers when you called about Evan mobley, which would be my second call, if not my first one, would say, you know what? I'm not sure we got enough if we just leaving us with Garland and Jared Allen and no Evan mobley and whatever the supporting cast is. I'm not sure that's quite good enough to justify the outlay of picks or whatever that may have to go along with Evan mobley. And then you get into the what does Durant want? Part of the equation. Because Toronto is not on his list. And you can see you can see all the sort of market snobs around the NBA being like, well, nobody ever wants to go to Toronto. Nobody ever wants to go to New Orleans. And I would say, okay, like maybe that's true, Toronto has been like a really high quality NBA team for ten years now. Masai ujiri is a really popular executive among players. Let's get them in a room. And it's Canada. Obviously, some players don't want the complexity of changing your residents to another country and all that. But let's get them in a room and see. And if Kevin Durant feels like I can lift this team to a championship, maybe he'll be amenable to it. Same thing in New Orleans. By the way, if you're Sean marks, who are you asking for from the pelican Zion Williamson or Brandon Ingram in the event, like if Zion signs his extensions at IDs off the table, but who do you ask for as the centerpiece? Yeah, I mean, my first ask would be for Zion. I think that also his small salary makes it really challenging because, you know, the only big salaries that the pelicans have to match it with or Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum and you're not getting both Zion and ending room presumably and McCollum is the guy that Katie's going there to play with. So I think realistically Ingram is the more sensible option, but I would probably ask for Zion anyway. Zion plus valence units plus filler has got to get me close to the number, right? That's got to be close to enough. Valentinus is around 15, I think. Yeah, it's in the ballpark. It's 27. So I mean, you could get there. I need about ten more. You know, Larry Nance could be in there, devonta Graham. There's ways you could get there, but it becomes more complex. I'm not really sure that I see other well, another realistic candidate is to, again, Jalen Brown is the other guy that the nets would at least have to think about. And I think the Celtics depending on how much they have to attach to Jalen, but he's only got two years left on his contract. There's not a lot of long-term certainty there for Brooklyn. And there's been rumblings for a long time that Jalen Brown now a long time predating Boston becoming awesome. Rumblings that he would like to test unrestricted free agency at some point. It just depends what you'd have to attach. It was a jail and Brown in just a bunch of picks and swaps or do I have to give up Marcus smart too. And if I have to give up Marcus smart or rob Williams, one of those two, I've suddenly got like Tatum and Durant, which is unstoppable and ridiculous, and then I'm counting on Derek white, one of smart and Williams. It's not you've compromised your depth to a degree that I think you would actually have some qualms about putting the mother load of picks and swaps in there. What would you do if you were Boston? You just made the finals, by the way, you have a championship caliber team, I think. Right, exactly. I mean, there's just not, there's not the desperation to do anything if your Boston. I mean, unless you're really concerned, unless you're convinced that Jalen Brown is going to leave. I don't think I would do it. I'm not sure there's any other realistic trades out there. I mean, the warriors is in the realistic. I don't think a reunion is in the cards. I've seen people speculate about maxi and Tobias Harris, but the sixers that have no picks that they can trade really, I don't think. So that's a nonstarter for me. Memphis, I think it's just going to take too much out of the jaw supporting cast. The nets have got to get Jaron Jackson and or bane in that trade. But Memphis should still be thinking about it and seeing what's there. We should mention the Jackson injury obviously complicates things that he's out the next four to 6 months. Karen Jackson junior has the foot injuries out four to 6 months..

"I really liked the story and I really liked kind of the supposition it made at the end or even towards the top was just the idea that the grizzlies play so slow relative to everyone else in the league that win games slow down the grizzlies are already used to it. So it's not really the game changing for them. It's just like a continuation of what they already do. There's a lot of that in these raptors from a playoff standpoint just from I use this phrase when I tweeted about the raptors a couple of games I was watching and there's last week. They're beautifully weird. They're just such an odd thing. There's limbs everywhere. I guess I shouldn't say that. There are arms everywhere and made it sound like we were talking about like a war or something. Anyway, it's arms everywhere. It's just a long team, which I mean obviously that's not news to anyone, but particularly I think you see it even more. At least yesterday they had malachi Flynn playing, but most nights where they don't have been like, okay, so they're not using a point guard at all. Instead, they're just rolling out there with a bunch of dudes that are 6 9, like basically all of them. In games where they don't have Malcolm Flint or Fred van bleed, everybody in their lineup is 6 5 or taller. And then beyond that, I think after Gary Trent, everyone is like 6, 8 or taller. So it's just a team of everybody has length. Everybody's got a 7 foot wingspan. It's impossible to get around them easily. It's hard to shoot over them. And because they're forced into it between Scottie Barnes and siakam. And other guys, everybody, you know, that you've got guys that are handling the ball that are all like LeBron sized as well. Which just creates like they could see over everybody. Had a couple triple doubles in the last few weeks, which, you know, before last week he'd had one in his career, he had two in the last week. So there's just a lot that I would not look forward to about them playing against them. Guys are starting to seemingly be more comfortable. Is hitting threes and has the confidence to hit them defensively their nightmare. Nick nurse, part of what I was saying before about the Memphis example, the idea that they seem prepared for the playoffs, the playoffs are responding to kind of like the situation you're in as far as what the other team is doing as far as an injury happening as far as foul trouble. This team has kind of had to experiment all year just because injuries because Nick nurse enjoys coaching a weird team that Masai ujiri is put together because Nick nurse is going to kind of throw the kitchen singing you from his own standpoint in the middle of the game in the middle of a quarter..

"We know that that of course you want the raptors twin another championship we all we all want that of course but i guess one question that i hear a lot of people talk about when they talk about you is what might come next. I guess we talked about some people that you're very close with brock obama. You know you were just on the campaign trail with justin trudeau. Do you see yourself. Maybe pursuing a future in politics people talk about that a lot and they talked way. They do they do. I hear it all the time. Yeah i i am interested in knowing what goes on in the world the way i look at it as i have a good voice where i am today and i'm appreciative of that and i don't take it for granted and so we'll see what the future brings. So maybe so. I'm telling you i'm already a politician from your perfect final question. I i'm hoping that we can end this conversation. Which has been wonderful. Thank you so much with the high point of your professional career. The nba championship night. In oakland and i wonder if there's a quiet moment that you might be willing to share with us a about that night that will stay with you forever. They're a couple moments of it. And because of what happened in oakland the moment on the court was taken away from me but i will never ever forget my wife ordering account remember if it was in and out all chicks filling and we had to fly back to toronto because my daughter was graduating from when you have five. What are you graduating from him. Yes in the guy so but when we got on the plane we had the burgers and the pilots had champagne for us. No air was the moment just two of us you know like there and all the texts that you got you got from friends people well-wishers everybody pray us from africa and then you take off and i can't remember if we had wi fi on the plano we slept off and then you wake up in the morning in toronto and there's another billions of tax that came in that moment those moments way incredible you know like to just sit back and you are not even been bothered by anybody but this to see my kids you know like when you walk into the door and we came in from san francisco of come from the airport..

"Thornton is piloting his ferry boat across new york harbor when he sees two planes hit the world trade center. And that's when we pull the hundred eighty degree turn and we just headed south to The world trade center area soon countless other ferries tugboats and pleasure crafts. Join him find out how this heroic impromptu rescue mission came together and how captain thornton sees it twenty years later on history this week available wherever you get your podcast. We're seeing more african players than ever before in the nba. And i wonder you expect things to be ten twenty years from now camps outgrowing the players social media things even more exposed. How do we build infrastructure. How do we continue to grow the game coaching. All those things become more difficult as the game gets wider on why. I'm encouraged by the ball league. It's incredible the nba was able to do this note for our listeners. This basketball africa league premier. Men's league that is fairly new. Yes started first. Championship was in april this year. It's talking about building infrastructure and the camps. You do so much that work through giants of africa. And i think you now operate in seventeen countries on the continent and i wonder how does that work connect with your upbringing in in nigeria and and falling in love with with basketball. When we do cams the kids sit on the floor and we speak to them. And i sat on the floor just like that basketball camp. The for my beloved coaching nigeria. Oliver johnson was an american that moved to nigeria with the peace corps and started coaching basketball. And when i look at those kids. I see myself i when i see myself i see those kids and knowing every single way if i can make it and i can get to this place when i say make it. I mean make it up to the nba is kids can make it even further. You know like they're more talented than smarter. But this youth they need a path and the education of sports for me becomes really incredibly important for them to grow. I know you certainly touched on this already. But i wonder if you could just elaborate for me a little bit more like you go back every year in your time off and i guess you don't have to go back every year and your time off you could. You could just take me right so why. This is what we were born to do. You know this is. It's an obligation for me. If i'm put in this chair to be the president of the toronto raptors and i don't win i don't win for others. I don't know where success is. Yeah the success comes from really building and growing those youth on the continent of africa and everywhere around the world and i feel that it's an obligation. I was watching this. Hbo documentary about you recently. And there's this moment you bring you bring the trophy larry. O'brien trophy back to nigeria. And you're sitting with your parents and you say right way. I came from something something big. I wonder. can you take me back to that moment. What did you mean when you when you said that. look. I look where my parents are. Set me up to be. They raised me the right way. My dad would always say to me beyond s. to people. Yeah respect people respect women and those those things always resonated. You know with with me nine. Incredible way you know and it's funny you come down to the basic fundamentals of life of looking somebody in the eye and telling them hello or showing some kind of kindness. Everybody can be as smart as they want to be. Yeah or anybody can go on the internet as much as they want you know like why are you as a person why you as a human being and i said i come from something big. Because they made me. I at least think about life that way. I wonder if we could spend a little bit of time. Also talking about the past year in the in the nba so other other than being an advocate for african basketball. You've also been outspoken on issues of racial justice and we really saw that come to a head in the nba bubble. After the death of george floyd keep your fear this. it's amazing. Why were you. Keep loving this country and this country loves us back home. State of wisconsin. We've seen horrendous video of jacob lee being shot in the back seven times at least knows and the additional shooting protesters despite overwhelming plea for change. There has been no action so are focusing cannot be on bass. We are steered by an american black man. Black black kids we are. We are terrified players messages on the jersey. They withheld their work. They shut down games and it was this incredible demonstration of showing the world their influence and power. It's sort of well transcended sport right. And i wonder what what you took away from that time. Whatever we took away still happening now. You know like the the thing why george floyd did was i think. Set up the whole world for another another movement and no like that just continues. The one thing. I loved about the past year and a half was in some ways. Black people became bolder. When george floyd sneck cop hide his knee and his neck okay. Grand for his mom is bleeding as pene on himself and can't go nowhere. He's handcuffed air. Who are you as a human being. Yeah you don't need to be a cop who had those people standing there. Yeah that actually seen this happen. I look at that and i think there's ways on ways to go and where we all have to like respect each other and know that this doesn't matter anymore. I said the color of skin is old is old fashioned. Doesn't matter way born yeah. You could be born somewhere completely like different. Yeah i look at my daughter. She could have been born in samburu. Yeah she could have been born in. Libya been born in many different places that make a different beautiful unbelievable girl. It doesn't do you see the raptors and the nba by extension playing an important role. Moving forward here like making sure that these issues stay in the spotlight. That people are talking about them. Yes i do i do. I think the players are doing incredible job individually and collectively where they can. We have to think about them to us youth. You know like they need guidance in oh they need exposure to we need to give them even a bigger platform in like to speak about these things to act on these things to give them resources in no like because they are the ones that kids look up to. I wonder if we could talk about something that i don't want to spend too much time rehashing because it is very much in the past but you know our listeners will will of course know about the altercation that you had after the nba championship win with the officer in oakland. I just wonder now now that you have gone through the legal system. If there's anything that you have taken away from that experience that you might like to to share with us yes plenty. It showed me that experience. And that incidents joe showed me that i am a public figure and i had an opportunity to tackle this issue because of my position. Yeah i need makes me think that people that are not in my position of people. That don't have the opportunity that i have. It made me really think. How do they come out of this. How did they survive. It happens everywhere and no cameras has no bail money as there's no lawyers i had all of those and so in some ways blessed i did came out that way where i can actually now figure out ways.

"Kyle. Lowry know in the best. I wonder how you think his story and his trajectory might fit into sort of the larger story of the raptors evolution. Maybe especially as a team works to rebuild down you know. I want to hope that there's going to be bigger. I'm better than kyle lowry. Because he has opened up that door. Yeah he's yeah all these records and what he's done you know these things. He broke other people's records. You know like they are the people that were spoken of as the best raptors of all times. You know like you can argue vince. Carter and how we made. Young players wanted to agree setup. Corey joseph's the wiggins and all these guys the barrett rj barron the latest and some say the biggest name in basketball the amount of canada. He's already got the hardware including a recent harry jerome award and actually usually reserved for people so much. Further into their careers may watched vince. Carter right one point. You could argue the mar- you know like what do i did. Incredible and it was unfortunate. How we think everything went you know like but i still see him that way. You know like he's erupted. That stands out in an incredible way. And then you look at people that way here. Too that dean. Stay that long. You know like kawhi. Leonard might arguably to be you know like a one year greatest her of all time i mean like so and then the talents of the tracy mcgrady's or chris bosh is you know like so but kyle just came on you know and the took off and what gives the most credit to that championship. Do you think he was also also talking about leadership. He was a leader on the team. And is there a deficit on the team. Now do you have to kind of rebuild rebuild that no. We're going to rebuild as a team. Where a young team. But we there is no deficit in leadership. You know. fred is an unbelievable leader. Yeah this is where everybody is going to see now in the kind of leader. Here's another team of now. There's going to be growing pains. Trust me you know like it's not sometimes it's gonna be tough to watch like but we know what's coming we know you know. Why excited about the young talent. They're excited to play. I think to see how or g pascal fred. going to evolve is leaders as lead players and then the young guys you know like the binds the malachi. The delay knows in sports people. Think now right you know and this is where we have to be patient. You know like let it grow right right. Maybe it's not just sports. That people are so obsessed with the now. But you're saying this is long a long game. You're not only known for the work that you do with the raptors but you also have the reputation for helping african players find their path within the nba players like pascal like surge arguably the biggest star from the last nba season. Janas says running the floor once again comes out of nowhere. Brill's it off the backboard yata staff. The tax breaks no doubt given the two time. Mvp in the league. This year's bill russell finals.

"Just outside the famous oviedo center in toronto and we are about to go talk to messiah jerry. And we're going to talk to him about his new role as vice chairman and president of the raptors. I want to ask him about the work that he's doing all over africa to foster talent and give opportunities young people there and i also want to ask him about this past year playing basketball In the nba bubble During he's sort of an extraordinary time protests in the wake of george floyd's death so Let's go him. Hi masai it is. It is such a pleasure to have you here. Thank you so much for joining me. Thank you for having me. And i'll say for our listeners. We are actually sitting in the middle of the oviedo practice court which is pretty cool. Really cool a few weeks ago you signed onto both vice chairman and president of the raptors and you said that you're here to stay and i know a lot of people thought maybe you'd leave. Maybe you'd had to a bigger market like new york and what what is keeping you here in toronto. Big question you started off with the big one Toronto is has become home for me for my family. They something about this space of toronto canada. That really is special. It gives me a good platform to speak to represent And it's a unique space. Why do you think that is what what makes it so unique. There's a lot to do with. I think the diversity of the country the city toronto I think different people from all walks of life all parts of the world different parts of the world. and there's a freeness. There's a certain way you know that a lot of people around the world don't even know but and sometimes we inside don't even know someone who who grew up in in toronto. Whenever i hear you talk about the city it makes me feel really guilty. That i'm always complaining about the traffic but i i seriously i saw you the other day. You were introducing art installation that you put together union station and you got a bit emotional when you start to talk about all the diverse faces that that you see when when you look up in the stands during during the raptors game. I come to the games every day. I see people from everywhere in your new role as vice chairman. What changes for you. If anything i think i on the motion you know it's to me. It's very important that people understand that we do have issues in no like here and everywhere in the world and and that's what resonates with mean some kind of way that we have people from all over the world and we all need to treat each other better. Yeah when i look at black. People look at indigenous people look at. What's going on with asians. We just need to be better. And do you think in your role now as president and vice chairman you. You have more of an ability to speak. Speak to those issues to address those issues. I hope i do i. It's not only you can just speak alone. You have to act right you know you i. It's there's the platform on the voice. I also have to represent and present by actions. You are good friends. With brock obama palca gomez is. I believe one of your mentors as well when you when you think about leadership. What are the most important qualities. Tier what i've learned from this people. Are you know they're incredible visionaries. Then i think as a leader you have to have the ability to hire people that are smart and in fact smarter than you as a leader. I think it's i think these guys these guys do it. What do you think your greatest strengths as a leader of annoyed. No idea why they let me do this. You know why one of the things i was humbled by was when these guys and they asked me questions. Yeah it baffles me. Because they know everything. Yeah so why would they ask me a question. And i've had moments with president mugabe or of forty four or justin trudeau and they inquisitive in their minds too. You know and very filled with information as so much information. It's it's it's really like. It's mind boggling. I wonder if we can spend time talking about kyle. Lowry lowers that continues. Kyle lowry green. How does he. Young guy from north philadelphia all kinds of questions about them not tall enough. Not fast enough not athlete. How does he become an nba champion. Our work never let nobody tell you can't do some special and Just a great group of guys. The i can't really think right now. This is crazy is awesome toronto canada. We brought it home baby. You've got home you. You wonder if that is the final. Walk of the greatest rapper of all time in kyle lowry so this this team arguably goodbye recently to its heart and soul and he's someone who's always loved the challenge i think probably being underestimated and he walked away the greatest raptor of all time. And i know you have also said that. And i wonder if you could reflect on. What's different about the kyle lowry. Who came nine years ago. And the kyle lowry who left his nine years older. He's somebody that's really courageous. Somebody that wants to be bigger better. And that's what karl was. All i can. Yeah we had our ups and downs on. Yeah he he had his moments. But i've always said it. You know like he's always been respectful. He's always been that you know like you. But he wears his emotions ice leaves to you know and he He's he might be one of the most competitive persons. I've ever been around of being in a gym where they are playing. Pick up in. The middle of september season has started. Nothing is going on and he's ruthless. You know like this is how he's mind works and I think those competitive people in the world you know have a have an edge about them. The most incredible thing is how he's game has evolved with time. He's very thoughtful. He's a visionary of the game you know like he knew where the three point game was going and how he established it as a human being family guy. You know like kyle. Lowry's is is.

If there's a bunch of banner hanging how many solo shows do we say i seventeen. I saw someone in the strangers. Yeah exactly as naji tobe said. Seventeen if that's if that's a fact but they didn't sell any to you rightly because even though you'll love by jovi tired. I mean if i got the free well now we wouldn't have got freebies in toronto. Would've had to pay for those. So yeah i definitely would have asked him a couple of years ago. My god what is show they put on. It was perfect perfect. Perfect venue and johnny boy brings it for that crash because he didn't play a bit of roses here in atlanta which is a little bit disappointed on all contravene at did he did play at wembley saved us for the real big shows spent. I still appreciate it. Cool story bro. Sorry you were frozen there for blogging. Well we need you to go back to wembley times good comment earlier on auto tune. Leila's you're watching on youtube. He just gets it gets. Jd's already cleaned this up if you're listening to the pie. He's really auto tuning every. Yeah yeah you're a rough at the beginning we then it was fine for a little bit. Now it's getting a little a little crappy so we had the. We had the man from xfinity at yesterday. Actually gonna rant tinkering apparently if you other people in the complex planning so oh yeah okay so improves. It'll get worse launch much all right. Let's get to tweet of the night. Tweet tweet tweety. Almost like a throwback tweet. Because i saw at the freak burner tweet look at the date when he posted this now. We're looking at on the stream team from your is instagram account. Back in two thousand fifteen october. Two thousand fifteen a screen grab from a show called the starters that says over a photo of a young young yoenis most overrated player in the league question mark. It was a question we had during our seventy-two burning questions are season preview. And i believe it was. Our guy are very angry. Task melles at the time. Picking on us as an overrated player. Light this tweet because there's a lot of people that are new to the show. Maybe see this on twitter. Like what the hell because we got tagged a million times and this was this. This is this is now. What the heck's going on here explain yourself basically explaining it. Of course it was me and i own up to it. Twenty fifteen years twenty fifteen. I was on the starters. Desk asked the question. Who is the most overrated player in the nba and my far too much. Makeup face said yanni synthetic because my reasoning was coming off his second season in the nba score. Twelve point seven points. I said that people out there. In the world were watching his highlights and and obviously. I'm not a dummy head. I knew he was going to get better in his third and fourth and fifth year in the nba but at that point people are watching his vine highlights and saying this guy is a hall of famer. He's the best player in the world. He wasn't anywhere close to that. And i said gupo was an incredible a guy to get in the gym and grow and be better so yeah at the time. It's all how you look at that dumb word of overrated so in the world of basketball. At that time i was on the internet. Probably more than i am today. I was soaking up people's thoughts. And they're sharing of vines out there. And how they loved genesis game and blah blah blah. But he wasn't. He wasn't an all-star people talked about him like he was an all star. He just wasn't that. So i i mentioned that and yes obviously posted it and grew to the player that he is today. Hughes those things motivation. I remember. I also was asked if he was the best greek basketball player of all time. And there's a greek basketball player in the hall of fame named nikos. Golly at that point no he was tweeted about it and he also re tweeted and said i'm using this motivation. But he's such a good sport that in twenty one thousand nine hundred when we gave him the starters. Mvp award because he was the best player in the league. He accepted it and You know there was a little grudging message for me. Jd if we could roll it first of all the thank god for me. Who was my. He was my source of motivation. is one of the reasons that i got better rebate day gene. Six to eight hours a day and That definitely helped me win these word. I hear mobile player of the year. it's thank you start as well that never hate and i never forgot that he like you know really calls you up by new there and like leads into the bit and stuff like that and you are a part of this origin story. Sarah's pointing out here tasks we. We came up at the same time in the nba world. Me and yanni's we. I was on tv. Got i got to talk about these dumb things we are. We have to talk about the most overrated player. So yeah he was on the show way back when he accepted. I believe we gave him the most improved player award as well on the starts at least the years probably two years before that so yeah what a good sport to be able to do that. Some players would say go back guy no way no way when they get the request from the pr team..

"Why time with james book nate. He's a hornet z. Hornets did you not move onto golden state or the kelly racing against scrapple. kelly kelly. kelly oubre Was invested heavily by the golden state warriors. Last year they basically paid eighty million dollars to have kelly oubre around and now he's going to be on his fourteen team in four seasons. I think that's a sign that things aren't going right into. Kelly oubre world as talented as he is. I want i want to see him. Rehabilitate his image. But yeah. that's going to be tough with the ball to go round with with book night in the guards. Let's it's it's a flyer on him and it's it's it's a decent amount of money.

The jumper has never come around for uber. And if it didn't come around when steph curry set me up it's probably not coming around. But this is great news for eric collins. Because i think kelly oubre and miles bridges running the wings with lamelo is going to be special like. That's a real good way for kelly. Oubre it kinda rehab. His value around the league is to just run play hard and just try and get as many incredible highlight dunks. You possibly can. Cause eric collins is really going to sell them. As for billy hermit gomez. I can't believe this. I used to be a want. Shell i took willie here guys every day. I had them going to the hornets. I had that wrong. He's resigning with the pelicans.

"We'll get something up there. Now congrats to him. And i think i think they retired. Dan marino's jersey. Did so you know the thirteen is hanging up there regardless Dan marino cool. The pistons retire kid. Rock's number whatever i toronto in the rafters for awhile. Bon jovi to sell outs. There was something like that taylor. Swift wasn't it with The reps had somebody blonde jovi chevy it some as an artist lake that for like three solid man okay. Let's get to some free agency news here again from the last couple of days. I'm gonna clump three together with the clippers. Reggie jackson signed a two year. Twenty two million dollar deal to stay with l. a. They're in the clippers. Justice winslow has agreed to a two year. Deal with the clippers. So they get him. And then quite leonard by all reports. He's resigning with the clippers after opting out of his original contract. I don't think we know the actual details yet. Buddy ain't going anywhere which is no surprise. Task clipper moves there. What do you think well. Let's fly through obviously co. i the biggest news fantastic for them just like the messiah news took a little bit of time to get it done people a little angry. Why isn't he just re-signing get it over with. And so they can figure out the rest of the roster. Well they figured out. And reggie jackson is coming back. They rehabilitated reggie jackson. To a crazy degree. He was literally released by the detroit pistons and they turned into a special player in the playoffs in his post-game or as post game also is post season interview. He was breaking down and crying. With what the clippers did for him and how special that was for him was was it obviously meant a ton to him and they hope that they can do that. With justice winslow as well justice wins a little bit in the league for six years. Start with the miami heat and number ten pick. He went to the memphis grizzlies and finally played last year. He looked okay. A in in those games. But he's a far more talented player than he showed. I'm a. I'm a believer in that swiss army knife of a player he can handle. You can take it to. The remmy can obviously defending can defend a lot of positions that is his forte. And they hope that they can do what they did with reggie jackson with him and they have an assistant. That was insistent with the miami heat for a long time. His name is dan. Craig the clippers do. He's their top assistant. And so hopefully that relationship works. Shane young pointed that out. And i think that's that's what they're going to try to. I think dresses winslow could be baked for them. He could come off the bench and and then be part of the starting unit at times. You see nikola bitumen there you know. Be a monster. I think justice win could be in that sort of same same mold but he has to be on the floor. Injuries of really hurt him. Twenty six games or fewer in three of his six nba seasons. But he's got the talent. And i believe what do you think tray of. Just these clippers moves here. Reggie jackson and justice windows specifically pretty good most If if the clippers playoff reggie jackson then this is an incredible deal To be able to get him at ten million dollars per season eleven million. I suppose he shot forty point eight percent from three in the playoffs. And i think every single one was off the dribble at the hand in his face. Like reggie jackson especially once leonard went down and there was more and more shots to be taken. He really sees the opportunity for the clippers. So it's nice to see him get another deal there and with waie waikele out for the majority at least the next season. He's going to have an opportunity to to continue to produce for the clippers and with justice winslow. You know he's only twenty five years old still at the very least. It's going to be solid on defense. Don't really know what else he totally excels at think that terrence man should be the guy who really stepped into the role while he's out but winslow is going to have an opportunity like tasks say to kind of be a reclamation project along the lines of nikola. Just go out there. Play defense hopefully hit some shots. Bring the energy. Do a terence man was doing in the playoffs last year. Just play super hard and raised the level of compete and athleticism for the clippers. Out there so there are not going to be quite as good next season as they were this season with kawagoe and down but they're bringing him back shirley he'll be a free agent again soon. The guy is a savvy operator. They're doing pretty well to recover from a major injury smoother to the hornets here. Lee couple moves they made in the last couple days. Kelly oubre junior signs with them. Two years twenty six million and then willie. Her hand gomez science with the hornets on a three year deal. We found willie whereas really. He's on the hornets. What do you think of. These moves from charlotte. Well would you rather devante. Graham at four years and forty seven or kelly right two years and twenty six. Who's who's a player out of those. So i think davonte a slightly better shooter in bed. Applying makeup kelly's probably defender a rebound. But i think feel the hornets. You're probably still rather have monte brian. I think so. Kelly bray you know he's dance around already a lot for a guy early into his career somewhat. You know you know what he can do. He's gonna hit a few shots for a few games but he doesn't really move the needle all that much too much for anybody. So i think for the hornets. It's kind of like well. We'll grab him at into a lineup. But i think honestly if they could did get graham back instead of just. I'm not a huge kill. You bright fan. I think that's what it comes down to. I think he's but isn't the ideal like the roster construction a little bit. You have lonzo ball. Got terrier rosa. You know there's a lot about your guard position there and maybe devante squeezed out a little bit being smaller guard. Your help on the wing possibly possibly. I suppose that's what it is. It's just how much kelly china they already had. Or what else does he really give you a pop from a little bit of an improvement on offensive rebounding so anyway look at the hornets. They had to sort of do something because they lost They lost graham and unless somebody else. I can't think of right now zella that's right there. Big man okay. So not a great off season. He wants yeah. I think they can survive. Have their team is really going to be. It's going to be lamelo same already next season and And if they can get gordon hayward healthy plank to the level he played last season. They're going to be okay but it doesn't feel like the hornets of improved this off season really to make. Yeah i look forward to james book night. Just what. I've seen even in summer league. He's going to contribute a decent amount to To the league he charlotte pick but he moved onto gold state But i i don't know why we've been talking about him..

"Maybe he does hang around for a few more years but it's almost like him. And joe ingles and a couple of those older guys. Maybe this is sort of crowning moment. And they don't come back for another one but it's huge. it's huge. It really was watching that game. I was like oh god. I don't have a lead the entire game and then get beaten by a point or two at the end because that's what happened in In two thousand and sixteen in in rio we'll leading and then a couple of faculties at the end against spine and we lost that one and again that felt like a great chance but no more no more we have the middle and it's just a very very happy moment for basketball fans. What do you think about this from dale in the stream team. Bronze-medallists are generally more happy than sinker. Medalists well some small truth. It's the it's the it's the winning of the bronze versus not winning. The gold isn't right. I look honestly. Australia would have rather been in the gold medal guy. There's no doubt about because your chance the women so if you come up short that's like gay fine but i think that was the thing that we were up by fifteen points against the united states and lose by nineteen. That was kind of what was deflating about. It was like oh my god. We were playing so well. Such great possible terrible quarter and it was just like oh man. I thought we were kind of we blown out in the leading by fifteen in a forty minute game so for for the australian place to sort of then get themselves back up and ready for this game to go out there. And that's what we're all feeling all. So why would he say last night. It's like gold medal game in watching the first quarter. I was like france. Felt like the team in the first quarter and they were trailing would. That's that's not good. That's not a good sign. Four at the end of the first quarter. And i was like i feel like france l. Played them they're like they had a better quarter overall and it's still trailing and it's like god it's gotta be shortening for sure but congrats on the metal. They're li that is big and It's awesome and everybody loves patty mills. That's the other part like how you can hate the guy. So i'm sure there's going to be a lotta nets fans. Suddenly australia cheering taty kevin durant and he shed a nice moment. Offer the middle mardi. It was katie's instagram and pettis. You're told facts so it's great you know and you guys like it for the canadian basketball team as well. You know how much it would mean to get to that get there. I want to actually olympic medal. Exactly and that's that's where a strategy it was for for a while that we we tend to usually make it but we just haven't been close to new zealand to get into the olympia. That's true god. No no but i mean that's true for the qualifying but once you get there then you show you you middle you worth and as i say four times prior we finished fourth so i think we've shown that we can't compete but it was just securing. Metal was what the goal was. And so we've done that by winning the game. And and that's just and so andrew guys was very emotional guilty. That were playing john fong. I know after the game. You're the voice. John incredible play break. The ice maybe they would have done that gold medal but yeah it's a pretty good second. John farnum saw amazing moment and the australians are fired up here in the chat. I'll tell you everybody's happy about this bronze-medal and for patty of course and and people are saying the new temper.

Into this thing the worry scale kept creeping higher and higher six at one point and you are nine. Then you went to a ten and never lost to france skeets. They said it couldn't be done. But the usa takes home another gold medal. Probably the hardest fought gold since nba players joined the program in one thousand nine hundred ninety two. It was the closest gold medal game for the us and to me it was very reminiscent of the gold game against spain in two thousand eight team. Usa against a driven veteran rival. Who's trying to take down the americans on the biggest stage in that gold medal game. Two thousand eight. The usa had kobe bryant to take over down the stretch when things got a little dicey. This team usa had their greatest olympic basketball player. Kevin durant another incredible game bit of a mirror image to kobe and kobe took over late. Katie took over early in this thing. Twenty one points by halftime and it really felt like a break in case of emergency game for katie. Anytime the us go two or three possessions without scoring. Just give it to kevin somebody is somehow get a mid range jumper. He was awesome finished with twenty nine points making thirty thirty and twenty nine and three straight.

"Wanna take a step back to going back to before Calorie arrived and became a toronto raptor. What was the state of the franchise at that time. And can you tell me a bit. About how lowry change that. Yes so you know at the time. Bryan colangelo was the general manager. So this was before just before masai jerry came and this was a few years after chris. Bosh had left toronto in free agency and gone to miami to to team up and win two championships with lebron james and to in weight. And if we go back before. Chris bosh it was a dark period after the raptors had traded. Vince carter who requested out of toronto to go to new jersey. So you're talking about probably a decade of reno raptors basketball on the pos. Vince carter era where they made the playoffs. A few times were eliminated in the first round but clearly. Just we're not in the conversation in the nba. They were just not a relevant franchise. And you know cal came here and obviously there was a series of other moves to you know. I think we can't talk about this era without mentioning dhamar rosen's impact as well but once colin damara was here. You know they turned the raptors along with head coach. doing casey. Into a winning program coincidence the rappers. Greatest years coincided with kyle lower on the floor and you know messiah juries arrival helped with that. You know the all star game came here. They got a new practice facility And the raptors just became a more credible franchise and they started to win behind. Kyle and demars well and if you jump forward now nine years after Arrived here people around the league. Talk about the raptors as one of the most respected organizations and kyle lowry's fingerprints are all over that and it just felt like it was a gradual process. I don't have the exact years in my head but it felt like they would make the playoffs losing a first round to brooklyn for example when they have kevin garnett if leading up to that championship. It was just a gradual process of the rapper rafters. Getting just a little bit better every year. Yeah and then you know. There was a lot of heartbreak along the way. Like you mentioned you know getting swept in the first round by the washington wizards losing to lebron james in what seemed like you know every single year and you know it seemed like the raptors had really reached a ceiling in terms of what they had built and obviously the trade for kawhi leonard. Really push them over the top. But you know for me. The twenty nineteen championship. Run will obviously be about kawhi but for me. It's always about calorie. Because he represented the journey of these raptors. You know he had been criticized leading up to the twenty nineteen playoff run about his up and down performances in the playoffs. You know there was one series when they played against the miami heat. Where you know. He was in such a shooting slump. That after a game one loss he went back onto the court to get shots up after a playoff game. Which is something that you just never saw before you know from from players and you know for him to have the performance that he had in two thousand nineteen during the championship bronze score the first eleven points in the.

6 Life Areas Youre Avoiding: And 4 Ways to Face Them Head On by Ingrid Y Helander
"Six life areas you're avoiding, and for ways to face them head on by Ingrid Y Hollander of Ingrid why Hallander Ellum T. dot com? You might call avoidance being lazy unmotivated, depressed freaked out or disliking conflict. But if you are human, you probably know the warning signs when you start avoiding avoiding can become a way of life. If you're not careful robbing you of time relationship money fun and other pleasures here are few target areas and examples of voidance that I see in my office every day. Work Life. You're successful career requires consistent task completion, and suddenly you are online shopping. Crazy. Physical Health. There are two wasteful hours before you get ready for work and rather than going to the gym you roll over and go back to sleep. Relationship. Small disagreement happens and use sullenly walk away from your partner. Social. A friend's invitation weights in your inbox and you tell yourself you'll think about whether to attend or not later. Spiritual Your Yoga, Mat and journal sit in the corner and you daily pass them by. And? Financial. Six bills said in your mail pile. He said Masai knowing that a simple check could pay them tomorrow. Sound familiar. What's happening when you avoid and what can you do about it? Avoiding is seldom a fully conscious choice. Elizabeth Scott s explains this frustrating tendency. This way quote avoidance coping also known as Avoidance Coping Avoidance Behaviors and escape coping is a maladaptive form of coping that involves changing our behavior to try to avoid thinking or feeling things that are uncomfortable and quote. Basically avoidance is bitch will coping skill aimed at reducing pain that is reinforced each time you do it. Sadly. The more you avoid the parts of your life that feel uncomfortable. The more shame you're likely to feel about those parts of your life to shame intern causes more discomfort and hence more avoidance. If you tend to worry in are easily overwhelmed, it can be significantly difficult to simply face tasks and situations and do the thing before you is not your fault and is not a joking matter. Just do it is a great model for selling shoes, but it's not so easy for anxious people to implement. So. What can you do today to head on face those things in life you tend to avoid and do so without crumbling in a corner later Here four ways to face her avoidance had on. Now and very gently. Number one acknowledge avoidance without beating yourself up. So. Yes. Maybe you don't WanNa talk to your loved one about a particular topic. Perhaps you have not exercised or prayed or meditated in many moons maybe the bills are on the back burner your friends wonder if you don't like them anymore, this happens to the very best of people simply acknowledging own that part of you is avoiding with as much compassion for your human self as possible if you get very upset with yourself or anyone else in this process, stop breathe and offer yourself at least one moment of compassion. Number. To write down everything you imagine you'd like to do if you weren't avoiding. Off of the suggestion for a few reasons, some people feel like they are lazy or. When in reality, they're getting nearly everything done in fine fashion for people who are highly driven or perfectionist, but don't own this about themselves. One way of keeping on task is constantly telling yourself that you are avoiding things for others. There's so much shame beneath the surface. This exercise can help you get a glimpse of hidden pain and allow this part of you to be seen by you. Then you can access more help with a therapist to get feeling better. And finally you may just be so accustomed to avoiding that imagining moving forward in a more confident manner is a wild new concept if soul be much easier to move toward the picture that you create in your mind's eye using all of your senses so play using your imagination. For example, in my fantasy world i. Any bill, write a check and send it off. Take my wife's hand and talk it through when I feel stressed wake after eight hours of sleep hop in my Wesson and head to the gym. Just play with it. The purpose is not to make you feel guilty. This is an exercise to increase your creativity and curiosity. Let your body and mind enjoy the play and possibility of doing everything in a way you would like to do it. You may feel inspired ready to embody what you imagine or maybe the thoughts feel to threatening and cause increased. Shame. Conversely, you discover that you are in reality facing a large portion of life, but you habitually use the mantra that you are avoiding. Just notice and write down. Will you discover? Number three start with a small change in the easiest of the six targets. See found some area of avoidance and you can see how you'd like the situation to feel different. Great. Begin by choosing from your list of avoidance is just one little action. You can take thou fuel really terrific or at least good when it's done, make it one with just enough challenge to pursue but not so much challenge that it is emotionally overwhelming for you. You really want to succeed on the smaller items here. So feel free to break any task down into a smaller portion. Maybe, spend one minute meditating this week rather than entire yoga or meditation session. Perhaps, he do fifty push-ups before work. Instead of going to the gym, you could write your partner, a letter of appreciation or reply to a couple of work emails.

Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac.

That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why. Don't we just acknowledge the folks and just to let everybody know that we are as of now for the past few episodes? We as in the sheep. Podcast team has been recording directly into the sea.

Healthy Disciple-Making Churches
"Does a healthy disciple making church Look like And that's we're we're GONNA talk about today and it's funny because I had a discussion with a guy On instagram awhile. Back and he was like hey kind of frustrated with where he was in his church. And he's like I've been at this church a long time but I just feel like I'm not growing. I feel like the church. Leadership is holding me back from using spiritual gifts and and Some of the things that he was kind of questioning to leave. Do I stay. And that's always a hard question to ask so I'm going to start to sing Donte. I'll tell you this is something I learned from for What's his name Tom Ranier and we went through this and we planted a church? But how do you. How do you determine what a healthy churches and then Donte you can dive in. We'll talk about not only. How do we a healthy church? But how are we a disciple making church. And what is the discipleship Look Lake In a church so I'm going to start off with just five quick things. I'll tell you when you were looking at any church have to realize that the church has one head and that head is Jesus Christ You can go go to Fiji's one twenty two twenty three or First Corinthians twelve twenty seven to see that okay number two. The church has to authorities the word of God and the Holy Spirit K.. Go to second timothy three sixteen and Seventeen or John Fourteen twenty Twenty six to see that the church has basically three servants. And I would say I would call that. You have your elders and have you deacons And you have your what they call priests which is really every believer so elders and deacons guitarist about an axe fourteen in first timothy. Another big one in Titus And then we talk about the the servant as every believer as a pre story Doer of the word to spread the Gospel in First Peter two nine. Revelations one six and fusions for eleven now we're talking about what is a healthy church look like I think there's four marks of a healthy church search you have a church that has to be self-governing and has to be self supporting. It has be self reproducing in has to be self correcting okay. And then I would say there were five functions when we look at a church and these five functions can be you can look at them from Matthew Twenty to thirty seven Also in Matthew Twenty eight eighteen in the book of acts in book two but five functions of a church we're worshiping abiding expressing love towards God were involved in evangelism vandalism were engaging region loss involved in discipleship which. We're going to talk a lot more about. That's helping believers grow into Christ's likeness in the process of sanctification and then Search health and multiplication developing sustainable. Christ centered or Chrysler communities and also reaching loss and then multiplying leaders equipping leaders leaders who can equip other leaders who then equipped leaders and multiply and so forth and so forth and loving God and people through character knowledge and practice So that's that's what I kinda lay out. And that's what I learned or the five elements of a healthy church Donte what's your take on this and I know you're GonNa talk about the Road Dumais. You may us. But what is What a scripture tells about this? Yeah I I mean we'll cover acts eleven in a moment to but like if God truly wanted the download you know to us you. What discipleship is an understanding? The Authority of the word you know two disciples after the crucifixion were saddened they were trodden and and they were walking from From you're on the Road Mayson as they're walking on the road to me at ten mile walk you know all of a sudden Jesus Jesus shows it up he hides his his identity from them and then he begins to explain to them why you know from scripture from new why we had to have Masai Y Messiah had to be crucified. Invite why the Messiah Rose again any opened their hearts you know. In a way that was less than ten miles a six mile walk ten kilometer walk to the point art work by the time they were done walking with his men their hearts were burning and understanding and and totally gravitating toward the word of God and not only the word word of God. The very word that was in front of them and not asking him to leave but to stay with them and Lo and behold before he departed Jesus at his you know he revealed old whose true identity to them and their hearts were burning for for God's true so that was a model of Jesus just showing us his awesomeness that if he just wanted us to just wake up one day and have him download discipleship and download truth and the and the understanding of the word. He could easily done that.
