Andy Erwin, Half of the Film-Making Erwin Brothers, Talks About 'The Jesus Music Movie'

"Are you looking for a good movie D like jesus music. I've got an idea. Why doesn't somebody. I don't know who make a film about jesus music. They could call it. You don't even need a title. You could just call it the jesus music movie Why i've been thinking that and then it turns out a couple of guys. I think that they're brothers. I think that they're the erwin brothers. Have made just such a film for such a time as this. I think andy or when might be my guest right now. Andy is that you good to be with you. Buddy all your is. We're on the same plane as usual. I think so. I think so i. I love music in general but the jesus music the stuff that we call you know. Ccm whatever what made you decide to make a film about the music. You i mean we. We love the music that has really shaped career You know. Of course with john. And i started out as music video. Directors and michael w smith was an artist that took a chance on us as kids and really kind of gave us are starting the industry and that led to us telling the story of i can only imagine the beloved song And the story behind that and that was our breakout hit and so for us. We have a deep affinity for this music but when covert hit it kind of shut everything down and we read a place in time where we said what what stories can we tell. Now that we couldn't tell any other time in history and somebody on our creative team said nobody's looked at the origin of of christian debris music and for the first time in history all these artists off the road at the exact same moment and so we reached out to amy grant and michael smith said it is interesting listed knowledge and interesting but we want to produce it you guys and not many people knew at the time but amy was about a month out from having open heart surgery and she was a really reflective time so we set up the cameras actually outside her house in filled through the window of her house with a two way intercom to get her interview and she gave one of the most raw vulnerable interviews. I had heard an artist give and it just spread like wildfire. Next thing you know we have a hundred different artists about three hundred hours of interviews to go through and it kind of morphed into this beautiful all encompassing

"This is austin lane. He's a former. Nfl tight end the host of action. Sports jacks on. Espn radio he was joining. He was joining freddie and fitzsimmons about whether tibo is going to be jacksonville simply for his leadership. The whole narrative that tim tibo coming to jacksonville. Be an urban meyer guy and helping that locker room presence. i think it's baloney. I'm not buying into that narrative because what what guys look for in terms of leadership and guys buy into his guys that have had except you know leaders guys that you can say this guy the baller. I gotta follow him and watch. How does now. I've talked to many times. Tim is a fantastic guy. But i think the whole narrative of you're going to bring him in because he's a great locker room guys all right. Great there's there's tons of great locker got. There's tons of great teammates just like any locker. Rooms made up of all types of people. So i'm not buying that austin lane also talked about. What exactly will tibo be doing assuming. He makes the team the whole narrative. That tim tebow coming to jackson i understand that he knows urban meyer. They have a great relationship. I guess you know. Urban meyer bought a house. experts week. Sent tibo so even if he makes the team. That's going to be great e hollywood. Tv show Urban meyer tim hero next door. It's gonna be fantastic. It's gonna do all the rating. But i do think this. This is urban meyer first year and then i saw and you know he's bringing his guys in. I understand all that. But what earn myers gotta realize. Real quick is that. You can't take anything if tim people is going to make. This team is because tim tebow has earned a spot. There are no you know there is no. I like this guy lot. Let's give him a spot. That doesn't work like that players not locking them. We'll see through that day one so two hundred two things are going to happen either. Tim tebow is not the tight end which we don't think he is and i'll be honest. I'm kind of in that boat or tim. Tebow is a tight end. And he earns his spot and he gets that roster spot and that's it was not good enough during the roster spot. He's not gonna get it. Because of urban meyer gives him that spot. He's gonna lose that locker room in a heartbeat.

"Day that wasn't anything bad about the Kardashian. It was about Scott Disick roasting. There you go taking down in two seconds. Meanwhile, I put up something about Michael Rapaport and I don't know if I can curse. I'm not going to curse but you suck what Kevin Durant said to Michael Rapaport and like that just totally flied. No problem. We are running out of time here on the zoom before we go. I just want to ask one last thing. What what's next for you. I know we talked about getting back outside, but where do you see the broadcast boys going? Like what can the fans expect? What's the next level? Yeah. I don't know how much we can say about YouTube series, but we're definitely going to be dabbling dead. Into some form of the most extreme sports, you can find perhaps of how much YouTube with experts all over the world. Hopefully starting soon. We're trying to get some sort of podcast type content off the ground kind of like this like recording zooms is doing long-form conversations, but we've also been traveling a lot traveling a lot. So it's tough making more Tick Tock may be judged by the content a little bit. But yeah a lot you could also expect a lot more of the same at the same time. I think you know House of highlights has been doing a show Downs where they kind of do these challenges for money with you know, Tick Tock YouTube Instagram influencers and stuff like that and that's becoming more of a series that it's looking like Brody and I are going to be like the official host of there's one month of June and then yeah, man, it'll just be us trying to figure out ways to continue doing what we're doing on to type everyone loves but also trying new things and trying to diversify what we've already been up to age. So that we can kind of reach a new audience and a new level. You know what I mean? Cuz I feel like once you get up there to where like our following is and frankly you're following us as well. Like it gets tougher and tougher to keep building upon that that's what I mean. So you definitely know what you mean and I'm trying to do a lot of the same. I will say one thing put me on the list for The Showdown. I want to come in for that Cash and June. Let me in there. I'm not knock out. If you're playing knockout get me in there and would not have stood a chance Last competitor. It might have been to hatch has been the easiest $100,000. This woman has ever worn. It was Jenna bendy, right? Yeah. She's she's like, I've met her a couple of times. She's nice. It didn't ruin the event but it was just I felt a little bad that for everybody else because it was quite immature versus a professional and like it would not even as like she took away a lot of The Dramatics of the event even though we still had a great time like it just the conclusion was already determined. Yeah. Yeah would love to have seen more like back and forth and stuff like that, but Jenna dead. She's built a little too different for those fellows, but that work like usually I would never get excited for a work event. But that Showdown we're we're bringing in all of these different creators. Like I said in some sort of Avengers white is actually very exciting to me because we got the beat all of these people to make fun of them. Right and this is without them realizing it. All right? Well, that's pretty much it. I want to thank you guys for coming down on the broadcast boys. It is the broadcast boys, right just broadcast Place handles broadcast boys. Yeah. We're the broadcast boys. Okay at the broadcast boys Tick Tock YouTube hit them up House of highlights. Yeah. Thank you guys. Appreciate it Frank. Appreciate you broke looking for help you..

"What's going on? It's Frank. Michael Smith. And they were talking about Paul Peirce. She just got fired by ESPN. Of course, you know that already what I'm giving you in this video is my opinion of what's actually going on behind the scenes here. I don't have any inside source, but I do have an opinion of what the situation says about a larger part of society and it's not good. So what I'll do is I'll show you the video and then we'll give you my opinion might takes afterwards. Let's run it off. Do you feel like some money girl? Stop playing Monica? What you going off birth? All right. So I've seen that video three or four times now and what strikes me about it is not actually what's going on. Cuz that's Paul's personal life. You want to have a party everything seems legal by all means do it not a good idea to broadcast it but I don't care. I'm not going to judge him for having a party looks like he's having a good time. No one's getting hurt. What I what strikes me is the Monica part this person named Monica who shouts out. It's really hard to tell if she actually knows this person or if this is just another random person commenting on the live Paul's having such a good time. He's cross faded and he's like Monica black girls named I got girls here. I'm getting a massage. Come on over. Everybody is invited. Especially you Monica come on over to the party. I actually think that's a more likely case dead. Then someone named Monica that's his friend is like what you're doing right now seems great. Like let me join you because everyone that's in a sober State could probably tell what's going on in Paul's IG live is not a good idea if people don't really get in trouble for doing this anymore. I'm surprised it even happened people are smarter than that now and that's all address this part of it really quickly. Totally understand why ESPN fired them. It makes sense owned by Disney family-friendly company can't have that stuff. There's a New York Times report that said if someone filmed him while this was happening and he didn't know they probably wouldn't have fired him. But since he chose to put it out on his own platform. Add to fire him but that's not the point of this video. The point of this video is the larger hypocrisy of America. So let me break it down like this in our culture that we consume guns drugs sex, you know through things like I've even seen on espm them playing the the Meg the stallion song the body ADI ADI, whatever I like the songs all about sex ESPN's okay to play that on games CBS is all right hearing her performance and the Grammys ESPN releases a swimsuit edition, you know kids play GTA off all these rappers rap about selling drugs. We are cool with all of this and I'm not saying I'm not cool with it. I'm cool with it. We're all cool with it. But then when when someone shows you them having a party smoking some leave weed, which is legal in California having some drinks also legal the girls legal when someone shows you that this them You've been consuming and culture all along then all of a sudden. It's not okay. I have to say once again. I understand what u s p n fired him. That's not what I'm getting at here. What I'm getting at is the larger black point of society where we say yes to this stuff. But when it showed to us we say no we clown you you make fun of you. We troll you why you can't bear to see you can only hear about it. Give me a break. You know, I feel bad for Paul Peirce in this respect and good for him for posting the videos of where he's saying smile get up, you know, he's taking it lightly Paul. She is going to be fine. He's made so much money in the NBA so much money did ESPN people don't know this ESPN contracts. They're still in the millions of dollars. He is going to be good. You get one offer all Thursday $250,000 to host a show with exotic dancers. I think he's going to pass on that probably won't be as best offer. But the point is he's going to be good. Paul Peirce is chilling and it's just it's sad that page. Want to treat other people this way. I just have a hard time understanding the double standard and the apocracy if at all so make of that what you will pause just fired by ESPN from Michael Smith reaction tomorrow for anniversary of the first ever video. I posted it's been one year since I've been a Creator didn't think that I would be leading into that with Paul Pierce's firing party. But here we are twenty Twenty-One. All right, that's it. That's a wrap..

"Bad trade? Because everyone to think it is we got the New Orlean Pelicans collapse who's to blame there. And then we got Luca over Dame in the All-Star. So we'll start with Carson Wentz. Now the reason I want to talk about this box isn't to say the same thing that everyone's already said a hundred times. Yeah. It looks like the eagles got burnt. But did they really is it actually a bad trade? Probably not. Look at the Eagles had a better off don't you think they would have taken it? What happened here is you have Carson Wentz a quarterback who we spent the entire pretty much past two seasons. You could even say three seasons bashing saying how he's regretting do Saying how he's injury-prone saying how he's a you know, a potentially a bad teammate. I got a quote coming up for you and he hasn't performed. So when you have all these things, what did you expect to get back? Did you want to walk around her for all those things? I just mentioned. Well, you got one to pick they got is a second and third rounder. It's actually conditional that second round pick in there. All he has to do is play 70% of the snaps becomes a first off. I digress it's not a halt. It doesn't look like they got a lot especially when you look at what happened with Stafford or what will happen with the Sean Watson, but this is market value off the best offer on the table. I don't think he's worth much more. I don't think Carson Wentz is very good. Neither does everyone else until he gets traded in all of a sudden we expect him to get you know, Matt staff value. Why would that be the case? Sounds crazy? Okay look, We won't actually know who won this trade though until we see him play if he in Frank Reich can actually fix things. Yeah, you know what Indie will win this trade-off if he sucks. What if he's the same Carson Wentz we saw last year get benched. You know, is it a good trade for Philly? Yes, of course you won the trade at that point. It's not going to be very hard for them to win this trade. Even though everyone seems to think they got destroyed. All Carson Wentz has to do is be the same Carson Wentz sounds pretty logical. So look right now as it stands Carson Wentz is broken. He's also a bad teammate. This is what is what is what and Anonymous veteran had to say about him. He doesn't understand he lost games for us. He will never admit that and that's a problem because it won't get corrected. Does this sound like a guy that you're just like, oh my God, I can't wait to have them on my team. We won this trade. The Eagles took the largest salary cap hit in the history of the NFL to get rid of this guy. They've been around them for what for years. Now five years now. I think they know what they're doing. They you know who he is. So I disagree. I don't think this is a bad trade. I'm not sold but we're moving on quick hitters in this episode New Orleans Pelicans. They're terrible right now. They're one game away one loss away from being tied for the second worst team in the west, which is not terrible. Well, it is pretty terrible. But it's the West it's hard. You know, I get it I get part way it should they be that bad? Absolutely not absolutely not. This is a team that we expected to go to the playoffs last year the NBA tried their hardest they even put up playing game in there to try and get Zion in the playoffs didn't happen, but they were closed. How are they so much worse this year. Well a big trade happened if you remember first of all, they fired the coach Gentry gone Stan Van in then they make the trade draft day. They get blood cell and they they get rid of holiday and they get Steven Adams. Now, this is a very very very significant trade here. You have Zion and you have Brandon Ingram Zion, obviously phenomenal. We all know that I think we can all agree on that and Brandon Ingram most improved player all the attributes you want in NBA star also still very young and who's the third piece? Well, they traded away Jrue Holiday for Bledsoe. Eric Bledsoe was out of Milwaukee. He's honest like fourth team now, he doesn't no one seems to want Eric Bledsoe and there's a reason averaging his twelve points a game right now. This is his worst since 2012 with the Clippers. I forgot he even play with the Clippers. That's how long ago that was. He didn't even start for those teams any average 12 points a game. That's what he's averaging this season in exchange for him. They gave up Drew holiday. Now there was kind of a narrative hear that how you got a deal Jrue Holiday. Did you because you could have paid him not they even had to pay him though. He was under contract this season. And for next season of Jack holidays a stud. Is he a superstar know does he need to be know he could be the third piece on this team not to mention one of the best defensive guards. If not the best defensive guard down the entire league. So when you look at the Pelicans collapse, how can you not point to this trade and say they folded because now your guards are Lonzo ball and Eric Bledsoe home lonzo's trying to get traded there's rumors of blood. So once out and in the NBA, this is a guard driven League, especially when the game comes down to the fourth quarter if you don't have two guards or at least One guard they can take control and guide you through the fourth quarter of a game Protective League or try to a lead into or try to make it come back. You're not going to win many games and that's what you're seeing from the Pelicans right now. They're getting torched. Look at the other night Chris Paul the exact opposite of what I just described torch them. Okay, Lucca over Dame some stories worth of this doesn't matter well to some it does but I'm here to tell you in the grand scheme of things. It does not so look when we when we go back and we were is this if we ever revisit this in ten years, what are we going to say? Are we going to say, you know, they made six all-star teams, but he only started on five. Now do we talk about Kobe? And we do we say Kobe 15 All-Star starts. Now, we just say that Kobe played on 18 all-star teams, by the way, I made that number fifteen up dead. You can't find the status doesn't I mean I looked on Google for about ten minutes. They don't even keep track of it. So it's just about making the team really that's like a career highlight accomplishment something to put in your resume. You know, when you get to the Hall of Fame, they'll probably say that but they don't say how many times you started in the game. But if we had to blame someone here, which I'm going to it's the fans off. This is a quote from the NBA's website. Fan votes served as a tiebreaker for players in a position group with the same score doncic won the tiebreaker over Dame for the starting spot. So that's basically what this is saying is the NBA try to do the fans of solid and say you can have a say in the All-Star Game. We're going to let fan votes count for X percentage and be the tiebreaker. The fans voted doncic in and then everyone got mad fans included that. Just got voted in. So hey man, the fans the fan. This is what the fans wanted dead. So I don't I don't see how anyone can be mad. Really the NBA should just take out the fan vote. I it's for kids. I haven't voted for an All-Star game since I was like ten it used to be cool and M B Parts when you get the thing and you poke holes in there and you leave it in there and you could even then I voted for all the Pirates players. So the parents are very good at voting stop it. If you asked Luke about this he'll even tell you that he shouldn't be starting the game. So it really doesn't matter. He said I didn't expect to be starting. I don't think he cares maybe damn cares. Who knows but this is the page are game. It's all about fun. I don't think anyone should be so pressed about this. I look forward to watching the game. So we have a little bit of time left. I'm looking at my thing here about ten minutes. I'll tell you a quick story. So I wanted to join a gym the other day and I'm in California. And I wonder if there's any private gyms anything that I'm allowed to do anything legal. So I look up on Google and I see something I see something called. I'm not going to tell you the name actually, but I see this gym and it says they're open like oh, this is cool. I'm I'm really sick of working out on my place. So I call them back up the phone. Hello. Hey, this is this is Frank calling about your gym. Are you guys open? Yeah, depends. I said well it depends on what he said. Have you seen Fight Club? I said, yeah. I've seen Fight Club. What's the first rule? Said don't talk about Fight Club said all right. Okay. I was like I just passed the test and probably in so what do you do for a living? I said I create content off immediately. This man is dirty. He said to me oh like adult content. And no actually that's not what it is at all. I do Sports content he goes Oh, so you don't do porn know if nothing to do with the entire industry said, okay. Yeah, come by come by and check it out. So that's it off. I I hope that story came out funny. I had a good laugh about it, but that's the podcast has the frame Michael Smith show review subscribe. Tell me if you like these shorter episodes. I am whenever I have a guest on I'm going to longer ones, but for right now, I'm trying to get at least a couple of these out of weeks. So this is a better format for me. Hopefully you guys like it and I would say have a great weekend, but that's only seven hours left. So enjoy.

Brian Michael Smith On Making Trans TV History on 9-1-1: Lone Star

"So not only. is it historic. Have this black trans masculine character on such a mainstream tv show but it is equally. important in. Has to be underlined actually that this role is a fireman. He's a hero and he's not built on cliches that we've seen typically what would your reaction when you first read the script for it when i first read the script i mean even before i got the script and i got the audition notice and i'm telling you excited for just a guest role on on nine went and i get the email and it's like series regular audition for nine one. One lonestar transfer firefighter. Who is from the midwest roughneck and is being recruited down to join this new rag. Tag team of elite firefighters. And i was like. Are you kidding me. This is exactly what i want. You know so excited by the character description. I mean we've come a long way in. How characters aren't even describing the breakdowns for auditions. And how respectful they are how much they understand. You know the difference between a trans man trans woman or someone who's non binary. I didn't think there would really be a day when i would be able to play a trans male aerobic character as a regular. Oh and you thought that because looking at the history of film literally hasn't ever been a character like that ever. No no no and i mean one of the amazing things about working on disclosure with. I got a chance to revisit. Some of the things that i saw growing up and then things that i hadn't seen before and as i looked through just hours and hours of film clips from tv shows. I realized like they're very rarely. Has been actual trans. Men characters represented until the late nineties with boys. Don't cry but even then the director had described the character as a female person wanted to be a male and all this kind of stuff. You know she retracted that. But most of the representation that i had seen were female characters women who decided to cross dress as a male for some sort of gain so it was like this you know. Women's empowerment story in male packaging. And at the end of the day. You know once you know her her love life was on the line or you know when she got what she needed her. She proved that she can do anything she takes. All the mail stuff off in becomes woman again. You know there was this whole believe. Almost that transmit don't exist. You know it was always kind of like women in disguise. So i thought either i have to just continue to play this male characters or just. I'd never thought that it would come from a television.

I feel like I get to this stuff really quick. By the way, I listen to podcasts all the time every day. A lot of people like to just kind of just chit chat at the beginning I get right to the action for you guys. Here. It is. Sean Watson the stands. Going on there. We're going to talk about an NBA trade suggestion. I have for Bradley Beal really tasty one. The gaps, I don't understand what they're buyout situation is with drumming and Nicolas Batum watching NBA. I think you know why I'm talking about that. So to start at the top off Sean Watson, here's how the Sean Watson can get his way. He has to get downright disgusting. He's gonna I don't think it's in his character to act this way. But he's got to get nasty dirty joke, he's got a he's Gotta Be You know just a jerk to their front office. He's got a really force their hand. I hope his age and his nasty or else he's not getting what they want because he requested a trade-off. They called his bluff. I've been waiting for a team to do this the NBA teams. They don't seem to have the stones to do it. But apparently the Houston Texans do they said no, you're under contract. We. We we just signed you last offseason for a four year 156 million dollar deal Euro quarterback. And we hired this coach and we intend on him coaching you and I don't know how they sold that to that coach. Sorry his name of the color or something like his name right now. I don't know how they sold him on that page. Certainly everyone believe he's getting traded. You know, he even had everyone makes her top five destinations list, but he thinks he's coaching a shot Watson. So the only thing for the Shawn to do is be miserable and plan his contract or get downright disgusting be a jerk and from all the research I've done on them. I made a whole video on him about his character. It's not who he is. So we got a standoff in Houston in absolute standoff. I'm excited to see how it plays out been waiting for one of these teams to stand up to these stars and be like no, We have an agreement you committed to us we committed to you. This is the way it's going to be we're going to try and be better. So see how that goes. Okay, the NBA thought of this while I saw the Lonzo ball trade rumors. Everyone's really down and Lonzo ball right now. He's been disappointing. There's no doubt about it, but he's still a real player in that team. He plays real minutes and he contributes so I'm not sure of the Orleans is trying to trade the real players away. You know, it doesn't seem like they're trying to trade him away for a better player. It seems like they're just a seller at the deadline here. You cannot be wasting Zions time like this. It's disrespect for Zions not built to play like fifteen years in the NBA with his body the way he is how explosive he is. He could very well be done at like 30 31. I hope that God he's not but it looks that way. Okay don't waste his time. so I thought about the Lonzo ball thing and it brought me to another. Obviously Brad bills in the market. This is the Brad Beal trade that should be made but probably won't be made Washington. She call New Orleans Griffin and same thing. We have a one-time offer Bradley Bill is not in the market. You can accept this right now will not be offering you again. We will not be negotiating. You will give you Bradley Beal and how she mura mura Harvey say it in exchange. You give us a Scion Williamson and Steven Adams to make the money worth. I ran it through the trade simulator the money works. If a pig slop has to be thrown in so be it that's a trade get it done. Okay, stop wasting science time down there in New Orleans. It's ridiculous. How are you in last place in your division? You design home and Eric Bledsoe Brandon Ingram. JJ Redick. Jaxson Hayes. Like you have good players. What are you doing down there? I mean, it's it wouldn't be much better for him in Washington. But at least to be a place to start. Well, I mean, I know they're in last to like what even be any different. So on the other end on the other end of it you get an injection in a New Orleans Bradley Beal is a better player than sign is right now. I love Zion but feels phenomenal. So maybe you can turn them around right there. I don't know if there's any other package. That's so great for Beal. There is one there's definitely there actually is one. There's the Golden State package in which they can get wise men some pigs. I think that could probably happen honestly if I was Golden State it might even say no but Yeah, that's that's what should happen another. And be a note here. What's up with the buyout for Andre Drummond? Why is it just a foregone conclusion that Drummond's going to get bought out. The Cavs are 9:00 and 9:36. He averages 14 and 18 All-Star stats. And things are going well in Cleveland. Finally. They're finally going well and you're just going to buy out your best player. Why wouldn't you just trade them? I always an expiring contract but don't buy him out. Like don't be awful cheap like something's finally going right here in Cleveland keep on the team. He seems to be helping Fourteen and eighteen so, I don't know maybe someone can explain this to me, but Unless he's going to start like going nuclear and saying I demand, you know, like acting like Sean Watson then I don't see why you buy him out. Keep on the team. Finally Nicolas Batum. I don't know what's happen when they close Batum. But it's significant. This is a guy who started three games last year for a terrible team in the Hornets. He's been terrible for the Hornets the last four years sign a gigantic contract at the wrong. Well as a young player in Portland, one of the worst signings of all time and free agency everybody quit on this guy all of a sudden. He's the best free agent signing of the summer. However, you'd like to call it before the season. Far and away. He starts every single game for the Clippers all Seventeen of their games so far. He started he left ravishing three points to ten points 28% from 3 to 46 per day from 3. He couldn't start for the Hornets last year what has happened. He needs to start his own like tb12. Nicolas Batum method what has happened to this guy? All of a sudden he's worth his not he's not actually worth that terrible contract but this is probably what they expected into your 4 of it. I just don't understand how how did LA know this. It's genius moved by them. He's great. I didn't pick them up my fantasy team. So I hope he keeps it up. I like nipple to him. I just don't understand how he went from bench warmer on a terrible team to starting for a title Contender and shooting 46% from 3. What did he do? We need to know Nick. Let's get Nick on the Pod. All right, that's all hope you guys enjoyed. Yeah me on Instagram Frank Michael Smith underscore for any friendly follow-up suggestions. You name it? Hit me on there..

"Would be the right thing for the dealership do You know, I think there's a low percentage but I think it could happen and all the names that you just tossed out there. The only one I think it's worth it is is DeShaun Watson? I don't think we need another agent quarterback. Those guys aren't as old as band but you know, I don't I don't think the Steelers to go after you know a Stafford or uh, Matt Ryan or someone like that. I mean wage you're going to have to give up a heck of a lot for Deshaun Watson. The Steelers don't like tossing number one picks two other teams. So I don't think that's going to be option that happens. I think that the they're going to need a shuttle ride Mason or hopefully do something in the draft. Well, that's pretty much all the options. I have completely exhausted. I think those are the five things dealers can do. I'm with you. I think we're going to ride out Flathead Mason Rudolph for another season. It's going to be really really painful. I don't see how we get to nine wins with him. But I'm going back to you. I know we don't think this is going to happen. But if you had to choose between Matt Ryan and Matt Stafford, who would it be? Well, I Know Who Tommy Texas 27 likes and that's the that's the boy up from the Motor City, but somebody dog 119 @yahoo, you know, I I like I like Matt Ryan more than I like. Or I think Matt Ryan still has some some left in the tank and I think Atlanta is is just a a team that was poorly coached and we're place a good players go to be average. I'm actually with Tommy, Texas on this. I like number nine. I'm not in on his Tannehill take but I am in on Stafford. I like to see him get a chance with actually, you know a competent franchise, but let's let's move it back a little bit. We've gone through the options of what to do with Ben. I can't believe I still can't believe what happened that game I mean just for the first snap of the game what how did that happen I have no idea I mean it was a Head Rush of all head rushes you know at home vs Cleveland and Cleveland wasn't able to practice and they didn't have other coaching staff you have an all pro pro bowl veteran Pouncey I mean it looked like evil Middle School snapping it over you know a quarterback's head I I can't I can't explain that and the way Ben was you know played in that first half life it you know that's just not he looked like instead of Ben Roethlisberger he looked like Billy Kilmer and that's a that's a reference from the from the seventies wage and you can look it up uh no offense Billy but you know he wasn't very good and he was very out of shape looking quarterback and that's what Ben looks like now and I don't think you know his legs and his knees down Thing and it's rebuilt elbow is going to be the value that he's going to command in the next season. If he would have just thrown like one or two pics, maybe there'd be an argument but for and it wasn't like these were tipped balls. I mean right after the snap goes flying over his head. He he throws a like a like a shuffle pass right to a guy a linebacker. There's no excuse for that. It's I can't watch another season that he's so unpredictable been he still does have good games in him. He can have that game right throws for four hundred yards four TDS and no interceptions, but it's just as likely as having four pics at this point. Yeah. Yeah, he's he he's a warrior. He's an all-time Steeler gray and all time. Miami Redskins, right? But you've next year. I don't see how he's going to get through a full season, you know being a statue, you know thirty nine year old girl her back, you know taking some licks and not being able to move around. I don't see the Steelers being above, you know, above 500 or they're in a team next year and if you look for a job On in the in the AFC North with those other quarterbacks, you know, they are they're all averaging about twenty-four twenty-five years old. If you look who's left in a house right now, except for two you have six of eight that are you know, battling for MVP and and Surefire Hall of Famers and you know, Ben is dead but not now not anymore. He was battling for MVP maybe around like week 8 but his campaign went South. What would you give up for Taylor heinicke? What choice of pick? Yeah, I watched him play. I was really really impressed by him. I don't I'm not sure if he was a you know a flash in the pan or what but you know, maybe he's a hard to suck at this point, you know, maybe it's a third-rounder or maybe it's a third and fifth or something like that. I think I think there's it's higher. I think you apply yourself. Yeah. I think he's played himself into like a second-rounder. I think that wage Be able you'd have to give up just slightly more for darnold at this point. Yeah, I'd like to actually like to see Sam darnold in a Steeler uniform. You want to talk about a guy that's got a lot of life left. A lot of play left that's been in a he's been in a dumpster fire over there in you know swamps, New Jersey, so I'll take him. I'll take anybody but Mason Rudolph at this point. All right pops. That's a quick hit. I know you got a you got a dinner to go to where are you right now? I'm actually down in Kiawah Island, South Carolina. I'm on a little Judy and I are a little walkabout and left Pittsburgh end up in in Florida and then back to the burg and about a week and that Smitty dog 119 on Twitter. Correct, or is it just me. Somebody dog? 119. Yeah, that's Twitter is the best place to find you you do fire off some tweets. Yeah, not not a lot of tweets, but there may it's all right boss. Thanks for coming on.

"Be there Someone is sacrifice and James Harden used to get on a treadmill. Okay, that's how this thing is going to work in Brooklyn or else it ain't happening. All right, that's enough of that. I'm going to get to my father Michael Smith AKA Smitty dog. You can find him on Twitter. He doesn't tweet a lot. But when he does, it's powerful let's talk see. What's up Pops. What's going on Frank going to be with you? Well, it's good to be on the podcast but it's not great to be a Steelers fan. We're going to be breaking down all the situations what's going on in Pittsburgh? What's going on Steelers? But before we get to that I just want to get your general thoughts as someone who's been a Steelers fan since you know, the late 1960s. Yeah, I think whatever the Steelers lose a playoff game. It's you know, Pittsburgh is a a major over-reaction Monday town. And you know, it's it's Defcon its depth on Thursday in Greater Pittsburgh Western Pennsylvania. And you know, we've been there before we've been this a lot of gut-wrenching stomach punch playoff losses, but you know, this this one this one feels a little different because of just how it went down and you know, the the agent quarterback that we have so it's yeah, it's a tough time for the Steelers game. Yeah, I just did a podcast with sports betting dime and we talked a little bit about it and I prefaced it by saying, you know Ben's my guy. We're both graduates of Miami University where huge Steeler fans, you know, that's that's our guy Ben and it's been a great run. I personally think it's time to hang it up and that is one option. So we'll start here. Okay, we'll start with what is been a current situation and this is option. Number one. You can keep been around. Okay, that is an option. He has one year left on his deal. It's a big cap hit it's like forty two or so million dollars is only owed about 9,000 of that. What do you think about that option? Yeah, I mean, I think he's you know, if you let me back up one minute. I agree with you on the you know, we're both Big Ben guys and we both go back to Oxford Ohio. I remember seeing him play on TV in the 2003 GMAC bowl and he absolutely lit up and I told everybody the Steelers should drop this kid and they didn't even know how to pronounce his name. So, you know, I do watch it with you know, I've been a huge Big Bend fan for all of his Seventeen Seasons. But yeah, there there comes a time and I do feel the Steelers are in a in a in a tight situation with then and you know, we're probably, you know, the cap hit that the Steelers are going to take which could be as high as twenty almost twenty-three percent of the salary cab with a lot of other holes to fill in a lot of them guys to sign that's going to be really difficult decision for the Steelers on what time With the next year now, there is a situation and this is option number 2. Okay option. Number two. The Steelers can go to bed and say been it's been a great run. We love you. We've paid you hundreds of millions of dollars. We've showed you we love you dead. But let's end this on good terms. Let's not have a situation where you go play a year in Detroit or something. You know, let's let's not embarrass you by by having to cut you let's bring it up man. Just just call call it a career retire and we can both move on now. What do you think about that option? How possible do you think that option is? Well, I think it's very possible. I mean when you push delete athlean Elite NFL quarterback like Big Ben, it's really it's hard for those guys to hang it up. I mean the Steelers are no stranger to making this type of business decision with every Nike on that, you know is very long in the tooth and is going they don't feel his you know, his productivity and value is really behind them. And then they did it with Franco Harris they did with Rod Woodson dead. they they didn't leave that credit terms on Troy Polamalu the end of his contract and you know hopefully if that is the option then accepts that off you know with class and and you know dignity out the door because I kind of think that's what's going to happen I don't think the Steelers can afford that type of you know cap that they can afford the dead money in the cap next year but not not the cap hit not with the value of the of what Big Bend is you know this the offense even though we had a great start to the year the offense was stagnant predictable and you know been just he can't really move around like his agent counterparts you know Brady and Phil Rivers so it's just watch him run on running running on and off the field it's it's it's kind of hard to watch I wouldn't even call to run it's more of a jog yes There, you know that brings to the third option get a guy who can move around. A rookie Steelers don't have a great pic. But there are five good rookies in this class. There's obviously Trevor Lawrence, you know generational Prospect Justin Fields, Zack Martin Trail aunt's dog Champion Matt Jones. One of those guys could fall too and see those are probably have like, you know, twenty 23rd or 24th pick something like that How likely do you see that? Is that something you want the Steelers to do how possible do you think it is? You know, it's hard to say the Steelers keep, you know so much of those, you know decisions off. So close to the vest. It was a lot of rumors today about, you know, coaching changes not Tomlin but other coaching changes and even Kevin, kolbert our general manager going to the lines of all places, but you know the Steelers, you know, they don't do this a lot. But I think they they're very stubborn in their draft choices. They stick by them, and I have a I have a feeling Going to get this is the option. I feel like they're going to give Mason Rudolph every opportunity and I think that's going to be a mistake because that's not exactly a hot take but I mean there are quarterbacks. I don't know about the kid from Alabama but there's other quarterbacks that I feel they can maybe trade up or draft and see what happens because you know, Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs or not the answer we will be definitely not the answer. I think they've taken every opportunity to prove that. I don't know why the Steelers front office would be the last one to realize that but that is option number for you can ride it out with number two. We've seen it play out for an entire year. He got benched for the duck. I mean, it's it's not a good option but it's it does I I have a really really bad feeling that you're going to be right on that wage. Yeah, there's kids out there, you know the kid from BYU and there might be some Diamonds in the Rough that you know, I think you need a today's NFL. I think you need a a Young quarterback. You need a nice big kid like Josh Allen you did a good job. Run around a little bit the offenses have changed. I think you need some Mobility. You know, I'm not sure exactly if I know who's who's in the draft, but they're they're guys in there and may maybe it is that you trade up in the even higher than the second round to get someone like that. And then finally, there's option five which is this is a weird year in the NFL. There's going to be some players moving around or some quarterbacks moving around Matt. Stafford's going to be available. Matt Ryan might be available. I don't think anybody wants Cam Newton, but he's going to be available Steelers are known to make moves like this and DeShaun Watson's definitely available. I mean, he's demanded a trade-off see those don't make moves like this, but could you see this happening? And and do you think.

"Welcome back to the front Michael Smith show. We have Blockbuster news in the NBA James Harden does the Brooklyn Nets? I have a lot for you in this podcast. Okay, we're going to talk about big threes in the NBA how they're actually can work how they can fail. We're going to talk about how this went in Brooklyn in particular can work out whether or not I think it will work and then we're going to have my father. Come on. It is a terrible way to be a Steelers fan. We're going to talk about the five options. The Steelers have with Big Ben what to do which ones which options we actually like and which ones we think the Steelers will you know in the end end up going with but let's talk about the big three's. Okay. So I have in front of me. I wrote out a nice little list right here for everybody watching you can see it Thursday. We're going to start with the 03. I'm sorry. Not o 3 just mm Spurs. Okay. This is the longest Dynasty the longest big three these guys all managed to stay together, but there is a pattern and these guys Nailed it. Okay, someone in these big threes always has to sacrifice in order to win a championship. Now. I'm going to run through them this one Duncan Parker and Ginobili who sacrifices off Manu Ginobili. He comes off the bench for these teams. Okay. He's the we loved, you know, the king of the eurostep, you know, he's great. They're all great. They're all hall-of-famers off, but there's no doubt about it man. He sacrifice. He didn't even start for these teams. Okay, that's a big ego blow to a lot of NBA players are not willing to do that and that'll come back in a little bit. So keep that in mind next we're going to go to gain weight Celtics. Who sacrificed Ray Allen now? A lot of the younger fans might not realise this but real and wasn't always just a shooter. He was a slasher a playmaker. He was like he was getting compared to be early in his career. It was kind of, you know, a similar thing between those two. He wasn't that okay. He sacrificed. He became a shooter. He was spotting up. He was letting Pierce to home of the ball control and it worked out man. I mean, it didn't end up working out in the long run. I don't think they like reality anymore, but they want a championship together. And that's the point. Okay moving on we have may be, you know, I don't know. What year do you want to call it? But we have the dynasty that never was the Thunder incredible drafting by presti here. Just absolutely a drafting run that maybe we'll never see again R Us K. Hardin who sacrificed James Harden James Harden came off the bench for these teams now they ran into a great Heat team and they didn't end up pulling it off, but That is the formula and they tried it and you know, it didn't work. Okay. Keep that in mind for later. Then we have the Heat team that beat the Thunder team LeBron Wade and Bosh course the heat off. We all know this story who sacrificed on these teams easily Chris Bosh. Okay. It's not closed Bosch was killing them in Toronto came over there. I had Ryan Hollins on the podcast for you know episode too I think and he said it wasn't even a big three. He called it a Duo because Bosh was such a sideshow on this team. He took less money to come, you know, he's he's banging the pain he had to do a lot of the dirty work. Okay, that's a big sacrifice. His points-per-game go way down. They went to titles wage worked out. Okay, then we go to the Warriors now, there's two versions of these Warriors, but they both work for the formula. Okay, you can go with the early one with you know, the splash Bros Place Draymond and then you can go to the later one, which is just absolutely ridiculous. And you had KD into the equation now who sacrifice some of these teams definitely clay and Draymond off. Clay guards the best player in the court every single night. He gets fifty points without even dribbling. Okay, he doesn't do that. Any of course you dream on his doing all the dirty work there. One of the most selfless teams of all time. Just watch I mean, we all watch these teams, but if you want to really go back and watch the highlights and just look at basketball Excellence. Look at the way. They work the ball on offense. This is a team that was completely thoughtless willing to sacrifice for each other and they won championships. They totally fit the formula also keep that in mind cuz Katie was on that team. Okay. We're getting to the Nets. Don't worry 2016 Braun Kyrie. K-LOVE. Definitely K-LOVE sacrifice here. Now it he got paid in the long run the cows rewarded him for his sacrifice. He got that big contract. I wish they may I bet they wish they didn't do that, but he sacrificed man. He wasn't getting all the shots. He had to do the dirty work and they pulled it off in 2016 Championship fits the formula dead. Okay, 20 21 the Brooklyn Nets trade for James Harden. I'm not going to go through all the trade details here. I'm sure you'll see that on Instagram or everywhere. Whatever you get your news. Okay, we're going to talk about. You know who's going to sacrifice your number one? Okay. I don't I'm not even sure. It's KD Kyrie and Harden like Harden already sacrificed. He tried that way. He tried that with KD on the thunder so very similar situation here for him. Then you have Kyrie who won on a big three team. Well, I you know, the big man was actually the one sacrificing so I'm not sure I don't think hardin's going to be willing to do it I Kyrie just such a big question mark I doubt it. I doubt it. I think it will have to be KD actually if if this thing's going to work I I have my doubts here. They're all very delicate egos. They all all dominant players. I'm not quite sure how this fits together. I mean, there's so so so talented it's hard to think that they won't be able to figure out in some capacity. I don't know if that equals a chance. Championship but someone's got a sacrifice man. That's that's the list. I just read you guys. That's how these things work. I just don't how could you say that? There's only one ball man. There's only one ball. Someone has to be willing to do the Dirty Work to sacrifice to score less points per game take less shots guard the hardest player math. I think it has to be KD. I think at this works out. Okay, if this for this to work out a lot of things need to happen now, I'm going to run through them right here. Number one. They need to figure out who needs to sacrifice. I thought enough about that when moving on number to James Harden needs to get into shape. Okay? It's no secret that this man is fat. Okay. I'm not here to body shame. I'm just here to call it. Like it's just that dude is overweight. Like we've seen Draymond play himself in the shape before it's possible you can do it and I'm sure he I'm not questioning James Harden a drive his his you know his desire to win. I think he can do it so that that's a possibility. Okay, it needs to happen though. And the number 3 I mean Kyrie needs to be committed is that such a crazy thing to say who knows where this dude even is right now I mean I just recorded an SBD podcast when I said this dog could be somewhere in the Himalayan Mountains doing a spiritual cleanse Retreat where you don't speak to anyone for a week I don't know what he's doing no one knows okay. He's getting paid to do a job and that job is play for the Brooklyn Nets now it's a job people would kill for and I'm sure Kyrie has his reasons and I'm not here to question them off here to tell you that he better be on the court for this to work all right that's they gave up way too many players or James Harden way too many pics if invested way too much in these young guys and if one of them's missing you can forget about it it's not happening so Kyrie.

You want <Speech_Male> to know <Speech_Male> I did a thing. <Speech_Male> I clean the glass <Speech_Male> which is a great resource <Speech_Male> for X's and <Speech_Male> O's and whatnot <Speech_Male> where they're talking <Speech_Male> about defense and it <Speech_Male> was funny because <Speech_Male> you know, when I started <Speech_Male> over ten years ago, <Speech_Male> I could come in with <Speech_Male> you know, I I was a basketball <Speech_Male> game Wisconsin <Speech_Male> and so Stan Van <Speech_Male> Gundy was the assistant <Speech_Male> coach of the times to Jackson <Speech_Male> was the head coach. <Speech_Male> So I <Speech_Male> I learned defense <Speech_Male> from those guys, <Speech_Male> you know, and we originally <Speech_Male> they Rick Pitino <Speech_Male> style basically, <Speech_Male> which is known, <Speech_Male> you <Speech_Male> know, don't help one <Speech_Male> pass away. <Speech_Male> And the funny thing is <Speech_Male> in this in this <Speech_Male> article, they described <Speech_Male> like in the <Speech_Male> last like 10 years how <Speech_Male> the league has shifted <Speech_Male> to those principles and <Speech_Male> I kind of wonder <Speech_Male> if if my <Speech_Music_Male> dog Had anything <Speech_Male> to do with that because <Speech_Male> I would just would rail over <Speech_Male> and over again and try <Speech_Male> and teach this thing and <Speech_Male> understand why <Speech_Male> it works so much better <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> and even like a good friend <Speech_Male> of mine on Twitter who <Speech_Male> I respect who does a lot <Speech_Male> of training of individual <Speech_Music_Male> has like, <Speech_Music_Male> you know, <Speech_Music_Male> trying to light me up <Speech_Male> on on <Speech_Male> helping one pass <Speech_Music_Male> away stuff when it's <Speech_Music_Male> like look, <Speech_Male> you know, <Speech_Male> you do that and you give <Speech_Male> up an open 3 <Speech_Male> and in this day <Speech_Male> and age the <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> morgue open threes <Speech_Male> who give up the <Speech_Male> less you're going <Speech_Male> to win. <Speech_Male> So at any rate <Speech_Male> that argument <Speech_Male> is weird cuz it's a little bit <Speech_Male> more like belligerent <Speech_Male> a lot of the time <Speech_Male> I'm a defense <Speech_Male> of stuff and the rotations <Speech_Male> and whose job it is <Speech_Male> to closed out in those <Speech_Male> things. So I <Speech_Male> guess I'd wish that would be <Speech_Male> a little bit better <Speech_Male> as well because <Speech_Male> again, I guess I'm <Speech_Male> used to the argument for <Speech_Male> the setback thing. So it <Speech_Male> maybe I don't even feel <Speech_Male> the the <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Music_Male> disrespect as much <Speech_Music_Male> wage but it's disrespectful <Speech_Music_Male> sometimes <Speech_Music_Male> and these guys complying <Speech_Music_Male> and hot <Speech_Music_Male> on the defense of stuff. It's <Speech_Music_Male> weird. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> Yeah, that's <Speech_Male> an interesting one. <Speech_Male> I think defense <Speech_Music_Male> in general is <Speech_Music_Male> something that a <Speech_Music_Male> lot of people just don't understand <Speech_Music_Male> like even when you're saying <Speech_Music_Male> one pass away. I'm not <Speech_Male> even sure a lot of people <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> right? No exactly what <Speech_Male> one passage means. <Speech_Music_Male> I mean, obviously <Speech_Music_Male> if you're at the top of the key and someone's <Speech_Music_Male> on the link you one pass <Speech_Music_Male> away but there's other <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> situations. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Yeah.

"There's a picture of him where he looks like, he's a World War Two Survivor and he claimed that he just stop eating carbs, which is like a virtually impossible for that to happen. The only way that happens. Well, there's only one way and that's it was just he was afraid they were going to be testing around are not time and he wanted to clear his system. But listen, it doesn't take away anything from what he's done and and what a great person he is and how charitably is and all those things and so I always want to make sure everyone understands, you know, but there is there is no there's no question. Listen, they asked Derrick Rose. Once how bad on a scale of 1 to 10 how bad speed problem in the NBA and he said 11. No way that's on the record. Yeah. I mean you can look it up but off the air grows Peds. Wow, that never gets talked about I remember reading it but I think he he maybe he had said everybody's juicing is like really quick thing here. I think you tried it back off of that statement in later. But you know, once it said it I would tend to believe it's true. That's really interesting. You know, it's it's weird because a lot of players would try to justify it. I mean, we've seen it happen a thousand times in baseball, you know, there's it might not be like if these players are, you know, quote unquote and juicing it might not be actually like stairs. It's like, I'm sure that's not what Derrick Rose's saying like, he's probably saying there's a thousand different supplements that are not necessarily legal that he's taking like they may you might be HD age or it might be, you know, like Ray Lewis doing the D ROM. A spray like who knows? I I certainly have no idea, but that's a really interesting. Thought. I've never seen that Derrick Rose quote. I want to jump back for a second and and before we close this up. I want to ask you. As someone who you know watches the NBA religiously. What is something that you wish the common fan understood? What what is what is flying beneath the radar that that that a basketball mind can look at this and say, you know, I just really wish casual Watchers would understand this. Well, it would be easy to say that the step back 3-pointer, you know and well because I've done video after video explaining why it's not travel but I get it and understand why the The Gather step is such a thing to them. So that might be one thing but I think you know, the funny thing is is that I would have to say that the most push back I get or like arguing with me about X's and O's is defense and defensive rotations and it's so strange to me because it generally those are the most clear-cut rules and the most clear-cut things that you need to do that are either mistakes mistakes and I have to imagine that people who played any level of basketball. Let's just say was like J V or whatever. Well, you know, they play defense too. So they think they know defense they might not know all the offensive stuff or whatever but they feel like they know defense. Like I said, it's always what's that like a shell drill? Like you're just doing basic rotations. Is that what you mean? Yeah, and but then I'll get like weird push back on that like it's his job to go close out there and they're like, no it's not and a lot of times it's like a house are they like and they're a big fan. You can't possibly criticize them for for anything but it's like yeah, what are you looking at?.

"So especially for you like young kids or kids in the high school growing up, you know, you know cuz you always talk about well can they lift this age or this stage? Whatever it's like I don't even think you need you don't need to wait. You don't need to be bench pressing and and you know, you know lunging with weight in your hand is probably to my mind just as good as doing squats because you're dealing with other vectors of balance, which is more important in basketball versus, you know, when you're doing a squat and you're completely isolating certain muscles. So you don't need weights. You don't need weight room anymore if you know how to properly teach loading berth. See I can get your jumping when you can teach, you know, the explosives explosiveness. The key is flexibility in the hips. So if you can learn, you know, the four or five key hip openers, you know, and that will also reduce sprained ankles and then you can also teach proper foot placement how to run. We know one teachers how to run in America, you know, you go to any kindergarten, you know playground and you watch these kids run and they have these PE teachers and then maybe in a for a second third grade who that's when they could be doing it. They have no idea how to teach that and the name while you have Catholic kids that don't run properly and they're not every what I was taught. I think I was probably taught like wage, you know, you're when you put your left leg forward your right arm goes for it. And I think that was like the only teaching we ever got. Yeah exactly opposite now, then you can even though I think skipping is usually the big remember my daughter was in kindergarten like cuz she uses scissors and he can she skipped. Those are the two big, you know, fundamental, you know coordination things. That's so funny skipping is a really good thing by the way, because Skip dribble is what I teach and I spouses if you if you can Master the mi12 iteration..

"Means that the the players trust that you have their best interests are right. Well what better way to convince them and they get that trust then to do individual skill work and work with them to improve that you know what I mean, like young versus making them run to being this tough guy who was like, oh they're going to love me like when they come back ten years from now. It's like well listen, I want them to understand what they're doing now. So we buy in completely, you know today and tomorrow off. So I think that's another option of this notion of like let's do the individual skills more is that you're going to develop that trust a lot quicker. I always took pride in the fact that whenever we would coach, you know, we always had good players and then we have a guy that would trip over the Baseline when he walked in the gym right couldn't even catch. Right and for somebody he had he had something, you know, maybe it was heart, you know, he would run a little bit harder than everybody else. He seemed more eager we all Put a guy like that the team whenever level freshman through through varsity and we'll start with a freshman team and I swear to God Europe patient tutelage. He all of a sudden become like one of the best players the next guy wage next year come in and he's like, oh I missed here. I love basketball, but I'm never going to see him and he'd have it and I pulled him aside and the trial say you see that guy there there's like, yeah like that was you he was you a year ago and I and he could not believe it and then sure enough we would get that going every year and now I took no greater Pride than to know we could find those guys and really teach them and have them be part of that system. It was really really gratifying off the name of the game, right? It's called practice you're going to practice you're not going there to just you know drill yourself into the ground with with Sprint's we there's something I think about, you know, we never no never taught me how to do it euro-step or I mean, we probably did learn how to do a step back at some point floater. We never practice those. We never practiced any of these, you know counters or you know, individual workouts like you're saying so if you were coaching a team right now in your you know High School coach woke Nick and twenty Twenty-One, you know going for the section title. You're you're spending your practices doing how what percent of individual workouts. I mean at least fifty percent at least home. Now, we'd also be breaking out into smaller smaller line drills for our offense. Like I'd run the pistol offense probably which is basically, you know, dribble handoff into a pick-and-roll or a pin down and dribble handoff and we would just break that into like two or three or four parts 303 line 3 line drills for line drills, no defense and they could defense on it. And so even doing that part which is building the offense is also individual drills. Mm. I would be showing them all the things..

"At playing along with each other and they usually you're still good at moving the ball and playing Team defense. I truly do think they'll turn it around. It's just in a really weird start for them Moving to Tampa ago, and I think I'm sold on Nick nurse as well as a coach. I think he'll I'm definitely sold on Nurse. I'm definitely sold on Nurse think you'll have them ready to go every night and you know, they just paid van Fleet. I believe in the authors. I think that was such a good move and they've kept pretty much everyone from last year. I think so, I think they'll definitely turn around like you said, it's they lost they lost your soul in a box losing a bulk up. Pretty much that hurt is actually he's actually really solid. I thought he should have played more minutes last year. Yeah, but your guide Boucher he's been stepping up. I think he'll fill in that role nicely packaged in a shooting slump right now.

"Went viral. Everyone started knows him. But the production they're getting out of their Young Guns of him and Garland is excellent. So far this season and there another team that's owned not allowing. I think a hundred three or a hundred four points per game. So they're bought in on the defensive side of the ball and sex and like you said, yeah, he's going to be a 20 + square in every game. He's not seriously thought this guy but he's smart decision maker with the ball in his hands and I think Javale McGee is also playing some really good ball for them on the defensive side. Who knows maybe the Cavs could scrap into the name. With their a seat in the East anything's possible this year. This could be a a big season for him early in his career. Yeah, they can be the magic like what the magic have done every single year and go like, you know Thirty 8042 or something like that and just hit the 7 or 8 seed that can be the Cavs. Why not? I would just saying how the Cavs could really be making a push right now how they have they have taken someone else there in that spot. But who knows? Like I said earlier with Kim Johnson, I wasn't really sold on him coming out of the draft. So not really that good in that category, but there's a few other teams that has taken a look at and it's really it's really interesting to see who's playing good ball and his playing, you know, a little bit of lackadaisical here at the beginning of the year and it seemed that confused me with their offseason acquisitions the Pistons. They just don't have an identity. I don't know what direction they're heading. It's a really confusing team to me and really sad news. I mean, I don't sad might be the wrong word. I'm no doctor but I did see the killing Hayes has a tear in his hip this month. So that sucks. I was really happy to watch him play this year. He hasn't actually played that much but he's a bright young player. You hate to see that happen. There's just nothing going right in Detroit..

"All right everybody. Welcome back to the front Michael Smith show. I'm going to give you the winner of the contest 22 in a second. I know a lot of you were just here for that. But if you want to stick around want to be talking about the Westbrook wall trade going to be talking about Thursday I have for NFL contracts. So without further Ado, let's get into it contest 22 the W is going to Brody the fish 7 p.m. Excellent Name. I got to say I like that name. My man Brody had T Y Hilton 220 Alvin Kamara 197 Camaro Camaro actually not sure Corey Davis 282 wage a strong line-up as I mean, it was kind of a Down week in the NFL for for Fantasy purposes, but that's a strong line-up. I mean, I don't know why you would draft You by Hilton he's been terrible all year. I think he's in the wage first in my fantasy league, but that's a really smart Pac-Man 220 out of him coming in second. We have Trent underscore. Okay c14. He went with James Robinson Camaro Corey Davis Thursday. DTM Rodrigo, Aaron Jones Hilton and cook coming in fourth. We have underscore Hamish Siler. Underscore. I'm pretty sure what it yeah, Aaron Jones cook Marvin Jones and then coming in v j r in eighty-three had Jones Michael Thomas and Corey Davis. So that's a wrap for contest 22 is always Brody. The fishing is going to be getting a hoodie. You guys can enter every Wednesday and Saturday on my Instagram story these immigrate I never thought this would be going as well. We have thousands of people entering every time remember get the mineral tiebreakers earliest entry and and we'll keep them cranking. I can't wait for Hoops to come back and do those. Let's do Westbrook wall and we'll start with the Westbrook wall trade, but everybody wants to talk about I guess what it's not going to be that significant. These teams didn't really change that much. They're both going to be competing for like that succeed in their conference. I don't see either winning playoff series. I'm going to go through my dog. Settings in just a minute, but let's talk about the trade first. Let's talk about each player in it. I don't think anybody's a huge net winner the biggest net winner. I got a Bradley Beal. Okay. He's getting an upgrade off as far as I'm concerned Russell Westbrook right now is a much better player than John Wall. He's an All-Star last year. He had a tough start to the season, but he changed his game. He stopped shooting the threes off. He says he's fully committed to making this Duo work. Otherwise, it can be great now probably not but they upgraded the Rockets definitely downgraded but the weird part is if you talk to James Harden, he thinks he would take somebody like hey, I prefer John Wall's a teammate from all accounts for us is a great teammate. So I don't know if there's some beef we don't know of there. I mean just just rewind the clock a year ago a little bit more than a year ago. Since the season start made. These are the guys that were saying. Oh, it's going to be a problem. I can tell you what we playing together in our Oklahoma City. Yeah, Oklahoma City days, you know the League's in for a surprise now, we weren't we weren't we're not going to be this time either the Rockets are not going to be better. I think the probably be worse but they probably won't matter, you know, like I said, I'm doing the ranks in a minute, but I got five or six or seven. Advise invest doesn't matter. Yeah, I mean those are the winners and losers and and for anybody betting on John Wall. In society, it's just disappointing to see this stuff like you got John Wall and he's you know, he's showing you these clips of maybe a pickup game being played in a coach is saying he feels 110% He's in his body's never felt better. Guess what? That's not true. It's never true after you tear your Achilles. You can't feel 110% You'll never be a hundred percent again Long John Wall's and player that relies on his feet his athleticism quickness explosiveness. That stuff is gone when you tear your Achilles and it's a it's a career-ending injury for guards. Look at it. I mean Isaiah Thomas perfect example. I know we've come a long way in medicine and everything but off his career ended at 31a Trattoria. Killie's. He was done yet a lot more playoff miles on him. But he he was a player that relied on some of these days same things like speed like all the things I said quickness cutting agility. And as far as I'm concerned, John Wall is not a great shooter. He's not going to be like Klay Thompson. He tore his Achilles and just spot up and shoot Clays not forget again. I forget how to shoot now. John Wall could do that. It's still tough that he's a point guard not an off-guard, but I'm out man. I'm out on wedding on John Wall not literally betting on it. But like banking on it to me what he says he's going to be what hard and things seem to be no way now. I'll believe that when I see it. Let's talk about the rankings. Here we go. All right. My phone up in front of me waiting on my dude coffee mug here. Very professional set up. Okay, here's from last year Milwaukee Toronto, Boston, Indiana, Miami Philadelphia Brooklyn Orlando Washington's on the outside at 9. Of course got the invite to the bubble bath. They probably wish they didn't those games were terrible and it just mind you the Orlando got the AC and it's seven games on your 500. So when I say it seems going to page playoffs like you're you know, You can't you can't say watching is going to be good and they'll make the playoffs. So as to don't they don't correlate. You can be a bad team and make the playoffs especially in the East so long. I mean log in Milwaukee Toronto, Boston Miami, Brooklyn. It's just going to be one team. That's out. I mean I can see maybe Indiana falls out somehow maybe I mean probably Orlando falls out. I mean Charlotte is lamelo Ball's like some star Gordon Hayward really balls out. They could make it but I see watched to making it. I mean the Westbrook and and build they should make the play-offs. But what are you going to put them ahead of is anyone really going to put them ahead of Milwaukee Toronto, Boston, Indiana or I'm sorry, Miami, Philadelphia or Brooklyn know that means there are six seven or eight. Okay, they're not winning a playoff series no chance. And by the way, everyone's really high on Atlanta. A lot of people think Atlanta will make it they finish twenty and forty seven months last year. I know they got a lot of new players, but that means something there one game away from being the worst team in the east And that's a pathetic record. I mean, I'll watch those Cavs games last year. They were telling me they were one game better. That's really bad. All right. Here's the West LA Lakers Clippers, Denver Houston, okay see Utah Dallas Portland in Memphis on the outside at 9. And then I think they're keeping the playoff game play a game Cool. Okay, people want Phoenix in Chris Paul trade. So who's gotta be out? maybe, Utah I think a lot of people are high on Memphis probably this year a second year of Ja Morant. Maybe. Yeah. Well you definitely take OKC out. I'm sorry. I see out. Okay. So where does that leave Houston maybe in the seven or eight or nine? Maybe they give me a break. This team is completely dysfunctional if you read the headlines, everyone on the team is bummed out got a new coach. Don't be fine though. I mean, they'll probably be the seven or eight. It's like I said at the beginning it's nothing to really get excited about. I don't think there's change as much..

So excited if you guys to hear it tell me your thoughts on that one. I think they should adopted immediately.

She she got my number and she called my parents and she was in and talked to my mom and dad and was like your son. Has this confidence about him that I actually believe and long story short my last game as a senior doctor Lynn Lewis was there when everything kind of came to fruition and she was there to give me a hug and tell me how proud she was odd because of what I meant for the University and she told me she whispered in my ear. She was she was a humorous professor and she and she whispered in my ear you lived up to it. Wouldn't absolutely special moment. And I'm sure your mindset was okay, you know the most obvious next step is the NBA. Let's do this. You know, this is a juncture that a lot of players can relate to em, didn't this happen for you? Yeah. So after my four years at the University of Detroit I broke pretty much every record. I was the all-time leading scorer. I'm still the all-time leading scorer currently right now at 2319 points. I won the Naismith award as the top of her in a country under six foot. I one player two year two years in a row. I was Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore. I was an All-American Rejects and I mean and I left the all-time winning these winning this player and the university Troy to I 193 games and four years. I went to two NCAA tournaments with my team to the final four of the NIT my senior year. So no player has scored as many points has one as many games has garnished as many MVPs so Undisputed champ on this piece not even not even an argument. So when I leave there, Obviously that type of criteria that type of resume garnishes NBA Scouts and mock drafts and you can look this up as well. I was considered a first-round pick in a mock draft and I went to Portsmouth Camp which is an NBA Camp. I was MVP at a Portsmouth NBA Camp as well. I went to other two other NBA camps where I played. Well the draft comes along I have these big dreams. I know my back's against the wall off at this time. I'm five ten a hundred and sixty-three pounds. I'm a little bigger. I've proven myself at the high school level the college level one MVP and the drafts and I didn't get drafted. And.

Ronald Reagan's Address to Nation on the Challenger

"Our. I fire nation. Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God. Thank you

Michael Smith on the Paul Finebaum Show

"You're listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast and we're delighted to welcome all of you back. Oh one of the Tru truly great reporters On the on the college sports business seen in Michael Smith joining us now. In one of the most recent issues of the Sports Business Journal talking about The first six years of the College Football Ballpoint Michael Great to have you on we. We're always looking for ways to talk. I'd rather do it other than on the only on the air. But we're delighted to have you here and I wanna I just first of all Just have you do reflect on some of the reporting that you did in this piece as well as your own observations of the first uh for six years of the College Football playoff. Hey Paul thanks for having me So good catch up with you and You know the point of the story was to look at the College Football Playoff Championship game. We're six years into it now. The the deal it is being goes twelve years so we felt like at at this midpoint on the TV contract. It was a good time to kind of take stock of what has worked what has not worked and so we went out and hold a lot of marketing then media experts and got their opinions on on that question and so as you can imagine. Most of the feedback was positive It's better than the system we had before But it still leaves a lot of questions in terms of how do you grow the TV audience. Had He made it. It could schedule more consistent so we don't have two weeks between the semi final and final. How do we keep games off of New Year's Eve questions like that that they continue to come up and no real solution for right now you also took look with ESPN executives About the time of the game. And that's a that's that's a complaint you get all the time this year. The game ended. I think twelve fourteen no the game a couple of years ago when even later an and Michael you and I live on the East eastern time zone we forget there are people in California who are three hours behind us but That's not going to change. There's a no it's not gonNA change you know. Five of the six championship games have gone past midnight. And like you said some going well past midnight and that's where it really comes down to. How competitive the game is and with LSU pulling away at that point the viewer show probably after midnight was not as great raise. It would have been saved for the Alabama Georgia overtime game. No it's a really good point Let me ask you since you are You know all these people pool and I know you just go through spending some time and can't wait to hear more about it with Jim Delany in Nashville. Who Retired how? How does college football allow the Big Ten and the PAC twelve and more importantly the Rosebowl? Aw dictate everything else that goes around it. The that's kind of age old question June and You know there. There's such an allegiance. There's such loyalty to to the ball. Games like especially the Rosebowl like you pointed out often and that really is one of the major factors. You know the rosebowl being locked in at that time. New Year's Day on factors I y you cannot consistently put the semifinals on New Year's Day. And then come back with the championship game a week later And there there's just It's almost hard to explain. But there there's such a sense of The the Rose Bowl has been so. Oh good to college football that you do have loyalists like Jim Laney and others the you know who the SEC. In the sugar bowl for example that They they don't want to relinquish that. And so the only way to make sure the Rose Bowl and sugar bowl maintain that status as they own new year's Day. I wonder again. I have great admiration for Delaney and the fact that I would give him the credit here. I think you can correct a For being able to do this and then what did the SEC do. As you've reported Mike's life came in and said okay. If they're going to do that we wanna own the sugarbowl Slob of the problem with the sugar. The ball slot. Mike is at the game. Doesn't start till nine o'clock right. You know that's you know that's an aspect active Of all the experts that we talked to media marketing is worth. We talked to the one criticism or the one Miss when you talk about a hitter misses that kept coming up was the inconsistency the scheduling and maybe not being able to capitalize as much on in the semifinal games as they would like you know we saw the TV audience really spiked with that first championship game between Satan Oregon Oregon and since then it's Kinda settled in lower number right around twenty five million viewers. That's a fantastic crowd in this definitely It definitely gives. ESPN the ability to own that that evening. But when you think about the Super Bowl being eighty five to ninety million million viewers compared to twenty five million for the College Football Championship. You wonder how. How is the CFPB championship game? Going to grow its viewership and And the inconsistency of this is one of the factors that a lot of people pointed to that that could limited going forward and and I wonder listen. I don't I don't want to minimize twenty five million people That's a big number and when you look at the most watched events of the year after the super bowl off the collar after the Super Bowl and the in the NFL playoffs College football biggest night is huge. But I'm just watching it this week and I realized the Kobe tragedy has has cast a pall but From here on as you know Michael you're in the sports business world the Super Bowl. Aw is as big of an event as there is in the world and college. Football just seem like it's sandwiched in between the NFL. Playoff off games on Saturday and Sunday right. So this schedule if you think about it There were three. NFL Sundays in between the semi finals. The final amazing and so that goes back to the consistency question the scheduling and being able to maximize the opportunity to college. Football has to to own certain days as and when you think about cargo owning January first and neither the finals nor the semifinals are on January. First it seems a little counterintuitive and January. I was a huge day. I mean the the audience for the Michigan Alabama Citrus Bowl was was Gargantuan and so it's not like ESPN is going broke on this. I mean they're still doing pretty well. And maybe maybe the maybe. Maybe they're better off owning the semi final day and New Year's Day. I don't know I'm just a lowly employees at ESPN. But my question to you is what happens next We're sick. We're we're six years in then every year. There's this rampant speculation that something's about to change and it never seems to. You know all these people you spend a lot of time with the college football powerbrokers our brokers Between now and when are they going to alter if assuming they are the college. Football playoff are more people are more schools getting again we. That's a great question and an access is is definitely one of the one of the questions that I post a lot of the people that work in that space and There's there seems to be a consensus that that the commissioners at least are willing to talk about. That's a good thing. That's a step forward but I don't know of anyone who thinks it's going to happen before this. This twelve year contract runs. It runs its course and so it could happen in the next contract. I I definitely think it's something that will be discussing the talk about you know not keep coming back to this loyalty to bowl games. One of the one of the arguments that I hear against the eighteen playoff is about those four teams that lose in the in the quarterfinals awesome. They don't get the bowl experience. Well if you're one of those four teams they lost in the quarterfinals. Would you rather have a shot at being in the playoff. Who would you rather be able to spend a couple of days at a theme park having your bowl experience and so those it almost sounds kind of silly but those are the kind of conversations that are taking place when they're contemplating expansion and let me ask you Michael I mean this year we had the the the the peculiarity of the lending tree bowl in mobile with all due. Respect to lending three which happens to be headquartered around the corner from where we were sitting having a bowl game on Monday night and I realized I was a Corcoran the schedule but that late in the process I mean is that experience really that meaningful. I I've been to the College Football Bowl Association. I've heard what those guys say and they work very hard but still It just seems discombobulated up to me and many others. Yeah you know I. I guess that's just to me the the the the mid to third week in December bowl and and also the ones that you're talking about leading up to the championship game and early January. I just you know. Obviously they're important. TV CONTENT FOR ESPN but also they provide an opportunity to go on. PREGAME halftime the post game to talk about the next game. And so it's all part of the build up in an intersection that way. You know one other thing. I was thinking about fall. We're talking about kind of the future of the CFP in this current contract in years. Eleven and twelve. They're still to championship game sites to be determined. And that's something that will happen in the next couple of years but That's one of the things I'm GONNA be. Watching is what two cities are able to land. There's there's last two championship games in this twelve year cycle. What I'm curious before you go? What what are the next couple of years? Look like for the CIP in terms of In terms of site well Indianapolis is in there somewhere. It it is Is going to go obviously Miami and La to the new stadium in Houston. Okay then those last two years are to be determined. But you could definitely envision like Las Vegas a while you could invade eh envision somebody like Orlando that has bid for championship games in the past. you could go to north to a minneapolis or two met met life in New Jersey New York Those are those are some of the sites that I think this year Vegas is going to get a pretty good workout with what's to the NFL draft and everything else. It's hard to imagine not being in the Niger. That's a lot of a lot of places are going Michael Michael Fascinating If it's a really incredible read and of course anytime Vince Thompson is quoted. My eiser all over it Thank you for coming coming on. Just just one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry and you must follow Michael to keep up with things in the sports business platform.

Me All the stuff that you see in the movies really you know the thing you know. act like he's been there I mean and he did act like you've been there but inside he was completely awash.
