Fresh update on "maverick" discussed on The Rich Eisen Show

"Feel that strongly about this being bad. That bad for college football, But I'll admit I'm not called football purist. I'm not a traditionalist. You might be and you can tell me why This is bad for college football. I I don't I'm not a big fan agreed. And I feel like that's what's driving this. So I guess in that vein, it's not great. My worry is the others because I think we're heading in a much Like I'm a Pan JIA like Football conference is not the end game here. What I'm worried about are the non revenue generating sports. Because if they're making this decision based solely for money And nothing else. And maybe they break away from the N C. Double A and they start their own. Governing body. What's going to keep them from just shedding all the turning all the Olympic sports into non scholarship sports. You want to swim at Stanford? You want to play volleyball at Texas? Want to play baseball at Alabama. You know, hopefully you get an academic scholarship. Cause you're walking on your all walking on. Cause we're not subsidizing. 89 other sports. When we could Multiply our bottom line by X by focusing on men's basketball, and, um In football. And maybe they're you know, there's title nine implications. So maybe you're looking at women's basketball becomes a part of this, but there's so many other sports. That are going to be affected here. That's what I think the end game is Or one of the steps are and that's what I don't like. I understand the athletic departments are very much For profit wing of a nonprofit like I Colleges are big business. Athletic departments are big business. I acknowledge them not naive to that. But there's some Is it? Altruism? I don't know. That necessarily would be characterized as altruism. But I do like that football and men's basketball. Drive revenue, and the athletic departments use that revenue to help out baseball, hockey, swimming volleyball. I do like that. There are kids in high school that can get a scholarship to go play. Sport that's not football or basketball. And that's what I worry is if this decision is being driven only by money And they gain some kind of autonomy. What other really ruthless, cutthroat business decisions are they going to make? That goes against What we want College sports to be Maybe That's why all of this is bad because of where it might end up versus where it is. Is it where it is now or where it's going to be in a few months? Is that the worst case scenario? I don't know that it is. But this step after that, or two steps after that. That might be the worst case scenario that might be where it's bad for collegiate sports. 522987 to play Maverick Sports APP line. Continue that conversation and coming up next.

Melissa Victor, Host of Stoopkid Stories, on Exploring Race, Equity and Injustice With Children

"Coming off the heels of all of the uprising in america. That happened during the middle of twenty. You know kids were so much more aware one because they weren't focused on being in school all day and All they had was their tablets. Tv's they could just see all of the terrible injustices happening in america. And of course. I wanted to be part of a project where kids who were getting this negative Picture from the media can also switch to podcast where them they are celebrated. They are affirmed and they have an opportunity to learn about themselves in other people who may not look like them In contrast what we will see in in the media in. I thought it was so important that we started at the route. You know for a young black girl or young chinese boy or young latino girl to sit and listen to these stories like all this is me this is why am i like fried chicken analog kimchi or we lay off edges and then we put rice water out here like we do all of these things in. That's amazing into watch that grow to stories about. How do we enter. Maverick identities having interact with other identities. And then get into the icke part. Okay now interacted with these other identities. What happens when someone who doesn't look like me Interacts with me in a harsh way. How would it my feelings around that. How do i how do i navigate that as a five six seven. Eight year old So watching the trajectory of the series. Go from this. Is who i am and this is how i deal with.

Team USA's Face Masks Are Getting a Gold Medal in Freaking People Out

"Them standing on different levels of a step. When i see these these pictures of them getting their metal wearing a mask the contempt. I have for the world's government for the world's media and the world's medical authorities is so deep that i would say the pick. The pictures of the athletes wearing masks were getting. Metals is the symbol of our time that we have sunk into the irrational. That's what leads people to hate the unvaccinated. The the the swimming in the world of lies that has taken place leading to this idiocy of medal-winners having to wear a mask is the one person listening to this show. Who thinks that's a good idea who thinks it's it's really. It's a real health precaution. Not one of the olympic athletes is listening to this show. Nevertheless some family members might please tell them. Don't wear a mask when you get the metal. This is the the high. I think it'll be a bigger high if you get married. Maverick child frankly. But it'll be the high of your athletic life very few get a chance to win a second medal and another olympics. You really want the picture of you hiding your face behind an idiotic mask mckenna come drag you off if you take your mask off least when you get the metal you post for the photos. There don't wear a mask also feel bad for the athletes because so few people watching the olympics. You have a theory as to why so few people. I'm asking the living martyr you ever theory. Why so few people watching the olympics. It's the same sports events. Same excellence as of ears

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

So I went into it and I treated every rival as if they were like my Fierce enemy. And I, you know, it was like the only people that I hung out with and talked to were the people that I was teeming with and trying to make a career with. And it took me a while to start to understand that, you know, if she is on my side and the more connections and friendships that I cater to, the more people I had the opportunity to team with the more people that ended up staying in the industry and working in the industry.

Maverick a biography of thomas sowell and former libertarian member of congress justin amash and carson let me begin with you. The new york times is an interesting analysis of president trump this where they call them diminished but dominating at the same time of course. He had to give up basically his blog this week. He's still has a hold on the republican party. You serve with a lot of republican members of congress. How do you explain it. What republicans do about it well over the last couple years. I've really seen it. Take off. When i first got to congress. I could see this nationalist sort of starting to swell and by about two thousand fifteen. It took hold of the republican party in in a pretty big way at first members of congress when donald trump took office were doubtful about him. They would make fun of them in private. They'd criticize him They'd insult him. Even i thought they going too far and i was a big critic of donald trump and i couldn't believe some of the things that were said about him and then around two or three years ago around the beginning of twenty nine or so. I saw people really start to shift and the party really became donald trump's party completely and that's going to be the way it is over the next few years. I don't think. I don't think we're going back to a different kind of republican party.

How's it shaping me and i think this is a great tool to have that hopefully not to abuse it as now i can have ultimate control over my kids in every way but to use it as a teaching tool to be able to say you know how can you help grow and discernment and to make wise choices. And maybe not necessarily do everything the way. I think you should do it but to learn to do things well with integrity so yeah and just like the way you build. That character is by letting kids struggle and wrestle with things such you want them to struggle in russell with the right things and not the wrong things right and that's kind of are hoping intention is that they struggle with haight figuring out how to walk through these relationships ordeal which is but not having to worry about this very scary thing.

"So that's exactly what we're hoping to do. Very cool very cool. Aren't chris Well before our last question about feedback walk us through tech lists and the flagship products of the wise phone. What the features are on it and what people who had the phone will have access to. So why phone is very simple basic phone but it is not a kids phone. It is safe for kids. But there's a very clear distinction because there have been other people that have made kids phones their colorful and at the end of the day. Kids don't really like them. They've i mean. Big companies have launched kids bones. And they just don't work. I mean you hand a baby a smartphone and a toy phone and i you know which one baby is going to play with and so we designed it to basically appeal to the hipster. You know divisional minimalist crowd. That's the best way to describe it in so it's extremely well designed very apple esque very clean you know the whole interfaces built with two colors so it looks like a normal smartphone but the operating system is completely different. It's a minimalist operating software and in a sense you have just very basic tools. You can call you can text. There's maps there's a camera there's a calculator. there's a flashlight and that's about it. You know there's no what's more important. What's on it is actually. What's not on it. There's no solo entertainment. There's no access to advertising or social media. There's no app store. there's no obviously no pornography. It's just a very basic clean lockdown device. That is a practical tool so kind of like a phone from Used to be it a sense that she can't find anymore. Yeah yeah and can you share some of the some of the specific feedback you've received from customers and users of your products. How has tech lists helped improve the lives of others. Yeah so one of the trends. I just realized actually this week is that this is this is a pretty behavior level. Transformative product meaning. You could install a little out or do some screen time controls in. It's very incremental solution. Wise in you shave wagers screen time. Cut away five percent. Ten percent screen time uses. This is like diving off the deep end but as a result it makes a real life transformation. It's not an inch deep that using this device it's a mile deep and so we've seen some very radical radical transformation in the stories that i like the most There's a lot of men gr- grown men in in a few women that use it just because they've struggled pronger fy and they wanna do whatever the heck they can do to just lit up your life so this is what they're doing and so those stories are hugely encouraging to me Other stories are instances of parents having good healthy dialogue with their kids because another aspect of this devices we believe in transparency there is no incognito mode for us.

"I remember several years ago when my wife and i we didn't have kids and we're like you know whenever we have a kid we're not letting them get a phone until this age or if they do it's only gonna be like an ipod touch or whatever where they can just text only and call us an emergency or something if they need to and in day you know can is you mentioned to go from having everything and seeing what. Your friends have to going backwards. That's really hard. So where do you introduce them how to use them. And i definitely personally look at this as a good launching point because not only practically does it give them what they need as basis to connect with friends but it also says here is an introduction to how to have discernment about what you have in the future right and so i like tools that introduced that wider perspective and introduced wisdom and discernment on whatever you had for this no matter how elementary how complicated. It's going to shape you. It's going to influence u. How's it going to do it. You know even having text messages we haven't had before that's going to be a profound impact. And so that gives you good conversation pieces as parents and as youth workers strictly to say. How are we being influenced by advertising technology. You know we sell these studies now. About how technology shapes your brain chemistry in the gray matter and all that kind of stuff. And so i think that's a really good launching place for several reasons with students in technology and just off that i wrote an article called the dangerous riches of our smartphones and the whole concept behind the article woods. This is so so much power so much value in this tiny little package and just like biblically looking at well. Think of all the warnings. It's the number one most discussed topic in the bible talking about money and how dangerous it can be in how its potential to distract us from the kingdom of god from god given purpose in technology is almost the same. It's it has just massive potential. Yes there's some cool things that can come of it. They're not writing all salt together. But it has tremendous potential to distract us from the kingdom of god. And so i've started to talk to people in and asked him to think about technology in the same way that they think about money for their kids. So how would you teach your kid. I mean think about most parents have understanding of. Hey i want my kid to start out by having an allowance that they can know how to tie in intentional about it. And there's dave ramsey courses and there's all kinds of information about how to handle money and raise up a kid properly with the right perspective but there's so little on technology and so our hope is to kind of fill that gap in some way is just like you said here's a starting point to start this dialogue to start having conversations you know. Here's here's a dollar for your balance. You can put ten cents in the offering jar kind of figure this out and we've seen that play out. I mean we've had parents that said you know. My daughter was texting her friend thirty times for every one text message that her friend replied back and they're like okay. Hey we need to talk about this like there's a chance you might be bugging your friend. There's a conversation that was had because she still had training wheels on this piece of tag in. It started to open the dialogue in a very healthy way where she couldn't jump off a cliff metaphorically and really get in deep water..

"Yeah and for me. I went to. Cbs is the consumer electronics. Show in las vegas. It's the pinnacle consumer tech. Okay and i. Was there ready to be blown away. Industry only event was the technologist. So i got an invite. And so i show up and the first thing i see is a giant billboard from apple that says what happens on this phone stays on this awhile. I mean. think about what that really means and what happens in vegas stays in vegas. That is dark that a secret that is not a really that's the opposite of holy and and then it realize So i saw that. And then i walked sixty two miles up and down the the las vegas convention center in my two and a half days in. I just got this resounding sense that this tech world the tech industries just hollow. It's shallow there is nothing substantial no. No no one's looking at this from a biblical worldview in. So i think just having a seat at the table being somebody. That's making something that questions. The assumption should pornography beyond this device or not google that questions that yeah no big deal apple to that set. Nobody feel amazon looked at it. There's a number one host important in the world and these guys all just push past it but we're asking some bigger questions and and really starting from the ground and it makes a big difference when it comes to product design yeah. Yeah i'm sure being an innovator in entrepeneurship like what drives product creation is asking the right questions and saying like. Where does this meet need in. What is actually do. And i know several workers probably here listening and even parents go to the practical use. And so i think this will i to really talk about The products specifically so malls skate park seeing congregating outside of a movie theater. You know those aren't really the places you find teenagers anymore. You find them on youtube twitch snapchat tiktok instagram chatting while gaming. There are always exceptions. But that's a general social condition right now so. Accordingly youth workers are being taught how to engage with students online because that's where they usually find students and their friends so my next question is do you feel like checklists serves better as a starting point for kids and teens. I getting a phone or do you feel like it should be focused on pulling teens away from their technically inundated lives you got questions So straight up. I will say the kids that have gotten a a weiss phone which is the the our flagship product for for their first of ice or thrilled. They loved jumping up and down. And i got a phone that kind of phone and the kids that get this after. They've had a smartphone and just like they're very resentful hung so much so that i want to make a. I want to introduce psychologist specifically to ask. How do you work your way backwards because it's kind of punishment. Yeah that's really hard. It's a typical situation now. I'm not saying it's something that you as a parents should consider a. I've just kind of letting you know experience in the past. But i would definitely say if you've got a kid or if you have parents that you're talking with that. Have a kid that they're looking to get a phone man really. That's an a golden window of opportunity to really just double check the cultural assumptions of the world. And say what are we doing. Lean wiry doing it and that that's golden window almost irreversible entitlement to technology. So yeah definitely. Yeah i would agree and i think know when when i first Got in touch with you and your your people and we're looking at your products. I was thinking.

"And trends and your personal life and things that you observed in culture that led you to starting texas hall at the big question okay. How much time we now. I'll start out small okay so so for me and my wife we. We did foster care. Love kids we've had probably seven kids coming going our house and crazy stories that's a whole nother capture could go on for that but we there was one moment when we were doing foster care where we had an attended thirteen year. Old daughters dropped sisters and dopp at our house in know. We filled out the paperwork in the case workers walking out the door and she says hey. Don't let these girls near anything that looks like a phone and we actually pretty tricky conundrum. Because they were used as phones and so here's the freedom that they had they were used to and we wanted to not be these jerk foster parents that just lay down the law and this is and it's our house we wanted to be very welcoming inch as much as we could give them as much freedom as possible and so we pick our battles right and this was one that we were really stuck And we finally found that amazon. Alexa was a pretty good device for them. Because at the device level there was no screen and the stuff they had gotten in trouble with previously was all connected to screen And so that kind of sparked this idea of a safe device that's built act device level and then you just look at the stats and then i read a last week. I was on a podcast with the doctor who had a paper on pornography epidemic in high school in junior high and the first sentence said it had used the word smartphone in because smartphones are the greatest medium the greatest vulnerability for just so much So much there's a lot of just kind of mysterious dangerous. That parents are worried about and their valid fears And so i said okay if we tackle the smartphone thing and make a smartphone. That is safe that out of the box that has really a biblical worldview built into it. Then that could change the world and so our goal is to move the needle on the pornography epidemic on addiction entertainment addiction. I mean these are. These are things that all of us have touched. We've all felt at some point in our life and so we just wanted to make respite simple solution for parents. Yeah yeah that's that's that's quite the jump start in in the parting. Shot at the case workers walking out. Oh by the way no no Like okay like that's quite a jump and so for you guys to be able to think about what that looks like and to adapt and then realize from that one example of how so many could benefit from that perspective. That's that's really cool. And that's our personal story. But then you also asked about kind of the overarching industry trends to the second. Half your question..

"In our options for activities. Grew sparse math. Many students especially at first when there was an initial fatigue of zoom because of school all day and then youth activities May students probably tried to exhaust their other forms and options of entertainment before logging on for a church service or small groups for youth or anything like that we as youth workers had the rare opportunity to experience the same limiting factors as our students Usually we're trying to think back to when we were in school and offer advice rooted in the way things were at that time and obviously on our observations that we can make now But along with our students we can ask several things especially in the context of twenty twenty and covid an isolation. are we prioritizing our time with the lord. Are we encouraging the students in the right methods of how to do that. And are we. Honest about our own idolatry. The final thing is the unfortunate painful truth that god uses suffering to help us grow recently. Talked about it A few weeks ago. For the advent week of peace with my students highlighting the final thing that jesus said in the upper room with his disciples before he prayed and they went to the mount of olives in the same breadth. He talks about having peace in him but then that they will always have suffering In one way it's good because we can know that suffering will always be here and it's something that if we try and expel of our effort to get rid of all the suffering that we are working in vain there will always be suffering in some form or another especially for those of us who follow jesus but god uses that suffering to help us grow in the main way that we grow in suffering is in further dependence on. God i think james does a great job in summing up when i'm trying to get at in the first chapter of his will count it all joy my brothers when you meet trials of various kinds for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness and let steadfastness have. Its full effect that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing. Twenty twenty has brought us a rampant pandemic. Which has resulted in death. Unemployment social isolation economic woes all mixed with the weight of tragic murders calls for justice and trying to love others while being unfairly characterized With several labels all of that has created an atmosphere. That can only be weathered with hoping. Christ so i prayed that as we move forward into twenty twenty one that we lean in together as we stand on that hope. Thanks for joining me today for this final episode of twenty twenty. If you haven't already pleased like and subscribe to this podcast wherever you're listening to it.

"And in mainly referencing a gospel. Coalition article written by eliza publicity us. I talked about how. When isaac watts wrote joy to the world. He was not writing it about christmas. It was never a christmas him. It was however about advent but it was about the second advent. The second coming of christ When you look at the words of the song and you look at what scripture says about. When jesus i came the incarnation as a baby they are almost polar opposite Earth did not receive for king. They did not prepare room in their hearts. They were not singing for joy. Jesus was despised and rejected by men as isaiah fifty three says it a man of sorrows acquainted with grief Mad men hid their faces. He was despised. He was not esteemed. But when jesus does come back every knee will bow because everyone will realize that jesus is who he said he was and who he will always be. Joy as james says Something that we should count when we meet trials of various kinds and most importantly joy is a fruit of the spirit so much like hope and salvation the other advent themes joy is not dependent on us. Joy is something that drives us forward that we can have regardless of our circumstances. Happiness is very much dependent on circumstances but joy. Something that is not rooted in ourselves but what we have in christ. That's why every sunday regardless of our socioeconomic status of some things that have happened in our lives or the lives of loved ones we can and should rejoice to the lord is a watts was looking at Psalm ninety eight when he wrote this verse When he wrote this song make a joyful noise to the lord all the earth break forth into joyous song and sing praises so when we have these elements of advent. They should not be dependent on us. They should draw curiosity. They should invite questions. People should wonder why we look different and again asking students. Where did you see joy in twenty twenty asking the think about when they still had joy or win they knew when things were grim that they could look forward to something that they had joy because of what christ has done for them. What got us provider for them in their lives with relationships with connections in the church We need to think about how we as believers can set the tone of what being a christian should look like. It's not a political agenda. It's not certain events in laws having to take place for christianity to exist. Yes thinking about those things and talking about those things is important. However individually making up the corporate global church. We can remember why we have joy when we can choose peace. We can celebrate why we have salvation and why we have not just an expectation or a wish but an assurance in hope for our faith that jesus is who he says he is and he will be coming back and why we can truly seeing joy to the world at christmas because we know that everything will be restored when this little baby who came at the first advent comes back ultimately will begin the restoration of all things can look forward to the grace that was accomplished for our future. And so as you look at advent. This year i hope maybe you can take a little bit of an outside perspective on it personally. Think about how You can celebrate christmas not just as the ending of twenty twenty but really as the beginning of a slightly different perspective and not to mention advent is actually the beginning of the church calendar so for us as a church Our liturgical year doesn't start in january it starts with advent and so what will this next year bring for us. How will we see. Hope peace joy and salvation in this year to come think about that challenges students to think about it in a new way how they can engage with their families with their parents.

"I'm on that rebellious guy. But it didn't feel very supportive. Mastery our youth ministry was tremendously successful. We were having tons of kids. Come in we do fifth order after the football games are you passed. We were having tons of people and we had no budget and no money and no resources and we weren't even allowed to fundraise because of the church bottles. And i had a heart for you ever since because i literally bar on my dad's truck and got some old older belly student church to donate meet some lawn mowers for free and we go around and cut people's grass at the church for free and if they chose to donate well we'd be happy to take their donation right and it was me sticking it to the man but i've always been that way and user so underappreciated or resource. It's not even funny. And so i give back so for every four these journals that i sell I donate one to use ministry for free and so i've really been privileged to send a bunch of offices out students and and that's something that's like my vision and you know this works i have. I have a church staff using us right. Like this isn't necessarily immature. You but user where my heart is and who are to help when most. And that's something that i personally have experienced and i'm determined to do as much as i can to to send them blessings back to these under resource folks like you guys. Probably so I i hope it comes through that. you know. this isn't just all about the money for me. This is about really solving my own problem and then try to give back very cool man. Yes absolutely giving back to the students who will eventually be in our spot. So what do we want the current and future church to look like an. How do you want them to wrestle. With and grow in their faith love it all right so how can people get these journals for themselves or their students. Where do they go online. How do they ordered them So i had my website is drawing near dot co a james for aid is my inspiration draw near to god and he will draw near you and i want to help people take that step towards scott so they got and take a step towards them and so draw near dot co is site and you know i have retail or one off orders but i seriously discount or bulk orders of like ten or more i have. I have got very aggressive price. Breakdowns to make it more affordable for a youth ministry So you know you can get a bulk wholesale back You can also sign up link on my site to submit your youth group or consideration to be getting some free. So i had a lot of youth groups who want you. Don't have budget and that's cool We'll get on that list in case you know i've got three one just randomize it and send it back out and so if you might get lucky and get off reebok's journals so I've got a special code. Promo code maverick. And i'll give y'all ten percents off even ten percent off my bulk workers. So that's something that should make it much more impactful I'm also piloting. The near journalism fundraising resource so right instead of selling like cookies or back the popcorn or like pizza coupons or whatever Your congregation this is a way you can sell the resources actually going to help your congregation. Get closer to god and make money for your youth. Ministry and equip your youth with three journals so it's still kind of in the beginning phases. But i'm pretty chill guy and we can tailor something so if anyone wants to is looking for christian fundraiser and wants to pilot this..

"I'm just helping the how out of the equation helping them solve the how So as far as the breakdowns and the components of the near journal really there's a couple main sections right one is undated so there's ninety entries in the journal but not dated and because i don't even use it every single day right stuff happens and that way. There's no pressure on day. One and and your four days behind ing onno. I might as well. Just throw in the towel. Now right so it's undated There's a spot in track what you read and a spot to journal rate just blank thoughts and reflections or whether your thoughts and reflections and it's a nice big chunk on the page and so typically Sometimes i will not even read the bible readings from cs lewis or something. And i'll write down a couple folks. That stuck out to me and what. I read other times like i'm flipping through mine. I wrote down specific versus other times journal. And say i m so frustrated like please help me and that's all i can get out. That day is two sentences right The second the second or is a spot for gratitude and thanksgiving nice thanksgiving is a very spiritual biblical fe. And it's also scientifically proven right if you focus on things you're thankful or you'll be happier And i don't think it's any evidence that god built us that way. Oftentimes people aren't intentional. With that. and there are a very popular bible studies or books like the thousand blessings and things like that that help people focus on gratitude. So i've got a little section that just calls that's mind with three bullet points every day and sometimes You know that is really refreshing to help recenter me on what's good happening when i am thankful for and then i've got a section for prayers ranks. Oh just And i find myself using this flexible right. That's the whole point Sometimes i'll write prayers that like lord. Please hope to trust in you. Please give me guidance. Show me what i do other times. I'll write down my prayer requests for people. What i'm saying for As a way to track that. So that's really nice. Just have its own little spot For whatever i need to use it for in a more free form and then there's two more sections that get a little bit more in depth than i think this is what really sets your girl of art from just using a notebook and writing prayers on one section of white piece of paper One is the area of focus so since the near journal was ninety days of through three. Three months is a really good amount of time to reform. Have it right if you do something for thirty to sixty days..

"The church is different is we're supposed to love our enemies. You know loving the people who love you as easy. Jesus said that he said if you just love the people who love you or what such a big deal about that even Sinners do that. So the way the church is supposed to show off its distinctiveness is in the way it cares for people who may not care for them and and and it is the surprise of responding in that different way that opens potentially the door for drawing someone into what it is. They really need absolutely and teenagers as far as the way they form those relationships in see those actions in front of them is really what they see online communication models Styles and Trends with younger Millennials and Generation Z students primarily through social media has perpetuated some tendencies that you mentioned in the book like over-simplification making everything and I'm right and you're wrong exchange and log Willing to attempt to find Mutual understanding and affirmation of someone beyond their opinion or perspective on various issues. So Daryl, can you give us some examples or some insight into what you described as trifonic structure of our conversations with others and why there is a much more to engage in culture than just being right? Well, first of all, I want to say I lament being a young person today because the examples that they have some rolling around them are not very good. There isn't much exemplary happening in the way of public discourse takes place. Yeah, and and so so if a Young Person's looking for a model how to do it, they're going to have to look long and hard to find it because there there's any models going on around all difficult conversations are trifonic conversations. I'd people know what the world is the word. Try finding. What does that mean? They're it's it's 3 speed. Is operating at once in your soul? Okay. So the first is what you're talking about. Okay, which is where people get focused. Am I right? What's the information? What's the evidence and said the second is the filter through which you look at what's in front of you and and when people say well what do you mean by a filter? I say all I have to do is say one phrase CNN and fox. Okay, they look at the same thing that's in front of them and what they take through their filter and what comes out the speakers are two very different messages. So the filters are important issue which we see and then the third thing is Mohammed identity is wrapped up in that conversation. So most subtle but it's also the most powerful cuz I'm actually responding out of how I am perceiving. What's at stake in the conversation often. What's at stake for me for for us? And so so all three conversations work at that level and I tell people It although you tend to think you're talking about that top layer. It's actually the frosting on the cake. Okay, what's really going on is what's going on underneath either through the filter or how your identity is Josh is put it at at risk and so the example I like to use for this is one that involves my why I have the gift of being able to multitask home so I can look at a screen and be engaged with the screen. She can talk to me. I can hear what she's saying and I can repeat it back to her. Okay, which annoys her immensely? Okay, so she'll say to me you're not paying attention to me. I don't pay attention. I can give it back to you. Now. Let's just stop there and think about what's going on. I I am consumed with what it is. I'm trying to do walk in the midst of her approaching me and and when she says you're not listening to me that that attack is not about the what she's talking about. Okay, that attack is you're not a good husband. Okay, that's how identity you are a not a good husband. You're not really listening to me. Now. I can try. I have a choice at that point in the conversation. I can choose to prove her wrong or attempt to prove him wrong by responding by parroting back to her what she said to me only she's actually making a more important in subtle point, which is this you don't care enough about me to look at me and give me your undivided attention what you are paying attention to on the screen is as or more important as giving me your undivided attention and I teach people I say when we get to this point of the illustration. I like to go what happens is what happens, what up what we used to do with our kids or what our kids do with our grandkids, which is You know, I want your attention look me in the eye. Okay, and I'm signaling something and an identity level. So I have a choice in the conversation where I can offend where I am, or I can make an effort to hear what it is. She sang to me. And if I decide to defend my Integrity as a good husband, okay, I will completely bypass the concern that she's raised by just parroting back to home. But if I actually hear what you're saying to me and make the effort to hear what you're saying to me, I may actually adjust my response and adjusting my response. I guarantee you I come off a lot better coming out of that conversation than if I simply pair packed or what I thought she said to me and continue on my Merry way so and and all conversations work that way. They you know, am I am I stopping to hear what it is? The person is saying to me or am I and really have a conversation or am I stopping to engage in a debate and there's always a good test for when a conversation is happening weather which level you're on and it's simply this. If I'm forming my rebuttal while someone is addressing me, I'm not really interested in hearing what it is. They have to say and why yeah, and so the first step is off work to make sure your understanding what the other person is saying to you and why the assessment of that can come later and come a little bit down more down the road when you all are actually agreed about what it is that you're talking about. And so most difficult conversations need two steps. The first is are we understanding each other and more importantly are we understanding what's motivating us to say what we're saying our concerns are and then you move to the assessment level. Unfortunately, we always conflate those we can fly them in a way in which we try and create a debate cuz we're worried about who's right versus trying to understand one another and when you do it, when you engage on that.

"We are designed for community and when you're designed for community, that means that we are also designed to be dependent both on God and each other. So Crystal how can youth workers parents and students take advantage of the products and the content you guys are creating / orange now. We'll listen. I love that five to six months number you mentioned cuz I think I think you're spot-on. I in fact I research looked at it on a yearly level jobs and determined that the average youth ministry will see the will see a kid a maximum of forty hours a year and that and that's assuming they're going to miss some weeks. We're going down some weeks and there that includes camp that includes Retreats. That's everything. We got 40 hours and their parent has 3,000 waking outside school hours with them, but he can't even pretend like we are somehow going to out influence a parent but what we can do is partner with those parents and give them the tools that they need and encourage them and not before we even get into like the orange and products and all those things. There is a website and an app called the parent qcue and it is so good. I think it's one of the most under yep. Realized things that orange the app is wildly downloaded but a lot of people don't realize that there is also a website behind it that has conversation guides. Like how do I talk to my teenager about just the sheer amount of Technology use and how do I talk to my teenager when I discovered that they're watching porn? Like there's no manual for those conversations. And so all she actually does offer a bunch of communication guides a bunch of activities that families can do together that their teenager won't roll their eyes at them which is kind of a big deal. So I I love the page to Resource because like you said their primary job is going to be the disciple their child. Our primary job is to help the family do that by law providing quality messaging and consistent leaders who are going to walk alongside them for a time, but we will never take over the role of a parent. That's kind of at the heart of what orange is. So if this song New to that and they're like, hey, why is your company called a color? I guess that's a lot in super simple. It's red represents the heart of the family yellow represents the light of the church and we just believe that when those two work together, they accomplished more than either could on their own. So we want the church in the home to work together and part of that is helping church leaders wage whether weekly programming because what I learned I served in a number of interim youth ministry roles while I was also a full-time educator and I think a lot of Youth Ministries are bi-vocational in that way. So what I learned very quickly is it's impossible to pull off everything like it just is no matter how organized you are and how good your volunteer team programming a youth ministry is a full-time job and most of us did not get in to we did not follow a calling on our lives. In to writing emails and designing sets. We followed a calling on our lives into pastoring people and ultimately I found myself in this position over and over and every youth wage talk to you keeps finding themselves in the position of having to choose each week between taking that call from a parent between putting a little more energy into palm reading in discipling the adult volunteers and their Ministry that having to decide between those people pastoring moments and making sure that some day or Wednesday night's program goes off the way it should get the supplies get ordered.

"It was a guy I was Here's you get to do you have to before you do anything create a roadmap of when you kind of what you want to do. Like how you're going to spend the first 30 60 90 days off and prepare that it show that to your boss. Like, you know, a good leader knows how to lead up and creating a roadmap that you can give to your boss and say hey this time I'm planning to send my next 30 60 90 days. And you know, I'd love your feedback on it and the first 30 days should be I'm going to identify every single leader and I'm going to have lunch with them or you know twice or you know, I'm going to have lunch and a dinner at their house and it's going to rid of the big all the leaders together, you know at my house or a house for a barbecue. That's the first 30 days for 60 days. I'm going to sit down with every parent, you know that I can if it's a large Ministry. I'm super difficult but most smaller Ministries, you know, I dream of going back into the church one day, you know, even as just as a volunteer running the show with twenty-five kids like I would love that like I have that opportunity to log. I would do it. I wouldn't even charge money for I would just love doing it. You can get together with twenty-five parents so you can figure that out. So I get together every parent that I could and then it gets you your student leaders. Like that's the the six days and then over the course of the next ninety days. You're going to sit down with staff members and you're going to sit down with you know other people maybe other youth Pastors in the community other para-church organizations, you know, whatever and you're going to have conversations and meet people now during that time you're doing like, you know, someone like the essential things, you know vet over what the process has looked like for, you know what it means to become a leader if there's a background check or application or any like discernible structure. You should make a change to that because pedophiles love to serve and non-profit organizations to get access to kids. That's a reality and the student we believe in reality the sooner we can do something about it..

"Like you said and. You know. A big thing that I think about you know when when you brought up persecution. Around the world you know no one wants wants to be a martyr. No one wants to be that person on the news who's you know getting persecuted and everything but God really never promises safety. He just promises us his presence and being with him and There's a lot of things that we put ahead of that man. We can stand on that and that is what gives us hope not just for this life but on an eternal scope and even hard times we can bank on a no. The creator of the Universe is with me he promised his presence with me and I can spend eternity with him and you know it's a broken world. It's a fallen creation bad things are going to happen. They're going to be fires it'd be job losses they'll be very tragic events and it's natural and actually biologically needed for us to be able to mourn and go through those feelings. But you know like you said, it goes back to where are you standing? On Truth, and what truth are you standing on to get out? At, also add to that To for for us, workers for pastors to the cat. One kind of phrase that came to me on through that season was that we need to stay hungry. The When win a lot of times when bad things happen when the situation changes all of a sudden you're like, okay I. Need to get after this any to do this I need to do this I need to get right I need to to read a little bit more I need to get sharp. To start networking more, and you know sometimes when we get when things are going okay. A little complacent we get a little bit cruise control. But then when we feel like all right I need to get up Anita bring a game. And then get my stuff together and he gets some good servants online and he'd start listening good sermons. Start surround myself with good people so that the so that it can happen you kind of you get hungry you get hungry get the eye of the tiger. He kinda get to where you like I wanna I wanNA bring my A. Game I WANNA get on it I want to get busy I need to get moving. I. Need to start networking and It's a sad thing when we don't. Stay hungry like that. You know. So My my a phrase was stay hungry wins is the good times when you when you got a job when things are going well when when you're just when when things are kind a settled. Don't let it be settled. Get after it in stay stay hungry and Because, it's a shame that we don't take the full advantage of of our lives while things are going. Okay. Get rocked that we start to like get out around really get your ear to the grindstone at really get your ear to the railroad tracks and listened doing guy moving was going but we need to stay like that. I think. So that's the thing I would encourage. Youth Pastors and pastors stay hungry. Keep your ear to the railroad track of what God is and be sensitive to what guys is doing stay in the word and Don't get complacent. Yeah. You know we need. We need the eye of the tiger baby. Yeah. Yeah Jeremy Definitely introduced me to rocky in a bunch of other great things So thank you so much young. Question. Yeah. please. Used to work on a long time ago it chick-fil-a right.
