"We talked. We dipped into some of this stuff about where things are going with the CBA. Big part of the CBA negotiations are going to be, all right, let's firm everything up. So whatever the TV money comes in, we know how that's going to split. And I guarantee expansion is going to be a topic of discussion through that of that. Because one thing with expansion, players get none of that money. So the reported 9, $10 billion, the two teams could fetch to join the league if it gets that high. It'll probably be minimum. 8 billion for the two coming in. Down to that goes to the players. That only goes to the current owners of the teams. It gets split up because that's not part of it. Now, if the mbp is like, hey, hold on, now the NBA thing comes back with. Hey, wait a minute. We're creating 34 new playing jobs for you. So but it'll be a discussion point, right? It's going to be a major major thing there. It's going to be, yeah, I mean, this is for people like me and I'm so happy because I've not even kicking and screaming. I've just pulled you along and you're into it now. This is awesome because this is really cool, fun stuff that we're seeing. And it only happens if the league is healthy and successful in a big part of that comes out of the NBA and then BPA have a good relationship. Even with Michelle Roberts, leaving in tameka tri maglio coming, they're doing great because they very much recognize you'll business M axiom of a half a watermelon is better than a whole grain. You gotta be smart about this. There's no reason to mess this up, just keep this train moving forward. We're all gonna get paid and let's keep going. So that is absolutely massive for this. And that's great news for basketball fans, because gonna get more and probably with no stop it either. On the court, we say winning cures all in terms of relationships and all that within a locker room, off the court, making money cures all. That's what the NBA is 100% doing. Hey, one last thing because I kind of skipped over cap smoothing. I predict 100% be a thing. The MVPA fought against it, rightly so kind of last time, because I think they thought the NBA was trying to pull a shady one on them and pull some sly business there. But I think they realize now nobody wants a repeat of, well, this one summer, everybody got all the money. Yeah, yeah, and you ended up with warriors getting Kevin Durant and stuff. So I do think you'll see them, they'll figure out a better plan going forward. I trust them that agreed, agreed. All right. Well, we're going to wrap things up there.

US Data Shows AstraZeneca Vaccine Effective for All Ages

"Trials in the United States of AstraZeneca's Corona virus vaccine have confirmed that it's safe and effective, paving the way for the country to start administering the jab. The U. S hasn't yet approved its use. As American health officials were waiting for the study's results. No one who received the vaccine became seriously ill with covert 19. It proved nearly 80% effective at stopping symptomatic cases more from our health reporter Michelle Roberts. It comes in a really important time because we know there's been a lot of attention on the AstraZeneca job recently because of the reported concern about blood clots, a reviews being done on that now. With no evidence of a link, and we've seen some European countries starting to use it again after pausing for a little bit, so this just confirms again. It's safe. It's effective and it works really well in the elderly population to where we didn't have a massive amount of try algo data before.

Our weekly allocation in Washington is now up to 100,000 doses. Assistant State Health Secretary Michelle Roberts says there are nearly 900 vaccinate vaccine providers approved more are in the pipeline, however, again about building infrastructure for the long term, and we do not have enough vaccine yet for all enrolled providers, so that's another point in our community, she says.

As other parts of the state and country struggle to vaccinate residents. Officials in Quetta Task County estimate they will have 97% of their doses administered by the end of the week.

Learning to change plans and stay flexible this part of the job Yesterday we told you that Hispanics were four times more likely and that black people were twice as likely to catch covert as their white counterparts. All part of the reason apparently could come down to trust almost Brian Calvert explained. Sometimes it's lack of access for communities of color, but sometimes there's also a different barrier. We have to be able to reach these communities activists, Lindsay Murphy, I would absolutely say that the black community is expressing Concerns not over not having access. There's a deeper wound over trust and times when minorities were used as test subjects, potentially withholding treatment intentionally withholding information. You know, we can talk about Tuskegee. We can talk about things you know, the you know, chemotherapy and the AIDS population. We can talk about those things. This is very real. Yes, This is why it's so important to reach out to communities of color with the vaccine, And it's also important to educate these communities because lack of trust and access It will continue to see a disproportionate amount of covert losses of those with brown and black skin.

The governor's placed a moratorium on evictions during the pandemic, and that has prompted a lawsuit now in Lewis County car radios, Nicole Channing's report filed by the Washington Landlord Association and small time landlords, the lawsuit seeks relief from the moratorium.

"Sorry jimmy butler but this guy the way it goes for the overall health of this league and for the benefit of all the players and by the way lebron has talked a lot about looking out for the rest of the players in the league and he's done a lot of things towards that end. I would think making sure he's guys got paid and sacrificing whenever he has to sacrifice physically to get back out there on the floor. That's in the best interest of most of these players. So i think this happens. I think that the overwhelming number of players will vote for this christmas week. Start and we're back in training camp and ready to go in early december. I agree and and that's what i have believed from the minute. This discussion started when there was pushback. Michelle roberts goes on the record saying you know. I'm hearing a lot of you know Concern pushback from players. They don't want to do this. And i kept thinking. Chris was who did this. This is a this is a players union. This is a this is a players union with four hundred. Fifty guys the lakers and heat makeup most of the four fifty. And if you want to throw in the other thirty players from the nuggets and celtics. 'cause ever shorter turnaround for being in the conference finals. You still the vast majority of players who it's in their interest to get going soon and with sooner and who do not have the shorter turnaround and felt like as powerful as the braun is as powerful as his buddy chris. Paul is as as president of the players union. Those are not the voices that are ultimately going to matter. It is it's a player's union. One player one vote. Lebron gets the same number of votes as everybody else. And i don't think he can talk the warriors and timber wolves and cavaliers in and hawks teams that haven't played since march into saying no no for my benefit or for my teams benefit. We should put this off another month. I mean that i don't. I don't think that was probably the message. I'm i'm being facetious and oversimplifying the way. That discussion would go clearly. But that's how it would break down to and it just doesn't make any sense. The majority of players would have more benefit than detriment by going and getting going sooner. And we're if we're being honest howard. We're really only talking about the lakers. The last week or so. And that's largely because you know we heard from danny green and there's been some chatter about lakers plus. They're an older team with guys that are in the early to mid thirties. As part of that core we. I haven't heard anything from the heat about pushback when it comes to this restart. I know amber thing from boston about push back in denver bunch of twelve year olds to so they're really young they can. I mean they'll go bounce back in miami especially he's probably already in training camp. They probably took a week off and went right back to it. So it's really only talking about the twelve. Fifteen guys on the lakers. At this point that are that may be the most disinterested in returning this quickly. I don't think you can look part of my surprise in a way came. Because and i said this last week in interviews with me and with others michelle roberts has kind of taken off the table and i was using that as a baseline for any kind of thought process about when the nba was going to restart as this has gained momentum and as the nba's made it clear that this is the best way to maximize the revenue the losses that we meaning the nba and the players will suffer will be catastrophic. I just believe this was this was going to happen. I can't the ball can't stop rolling for lack of a better metaphor without because just twelve guys guys..

"We don't know anything else. It does sound like to there were reports that maybe agency would start Yale the weekend right after which is right before I saw summer I yeah now. I is going to be closer to what it'll be because I think Michelle Roberts is like, well, we've got a lot of stuff to figure out between now and then and I think there's also a push from there's I'd no I don't think I know there's a push from a lot of people like we do not want free agency over Thanksgiving. You get through the Thanksgiving holiday and then we'll go I don't know if I've told the story on here but I had someone in NBA Fan off say every year I run away from the fourth of July Barbecue and if I gave that up for real family holiday like Thanksgiving, my wife's going to kill me. The other reality of like we we don't want that. So so yeah. So I, I don't know that that we get a couple of days after I think it'll be probably About a week after the first of free agency opens and then the season scholarly December maybe January. Okay. So there's there's a few things to unpack their first of all. You've got Danny Green gave an interview a few days ago and mentioned you know talking about the dates and everything he talked about okay. Well, don't be don't be surprised if maybe Lebron doesn't play the first month of the season and the jury deadly kind of ECO data a little bit on twitter he said you can't be crying than if you'd our players are sitting out of the nationally televised games if you're pushing us back this fast because for teams like like the Lakers it's I. Think it's seventy five days between game six. Ended December twenty second start date which and people have to factor in training camp would be starting in the beginning of December. So it's not even like it's not like they have from game six all the way till December twenty second he's got to get back into training. It's it's a very, very short time period. Realistically, you've got three maybe four weeks to kind of let your body recover to some degrees, and so that's a challenge but green also mentioned, hey, you know what other teams we're going to be in the minority with this opinion because other teams have been home since March, some teams left the bubble. and. So I do see it starting up earlier than teams like the Lakers would want and when you go..

"His plan says he do that by investing and disadvantaged communities holding polluters accountable. I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state. And she says Historically, Biden wasn't always Overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like DuPont over communities like hers. Hey, was a filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense? But Robert says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have evolved.

Climate Change Is A Top Campaign Issue At Least For Democrats

"This year climate change is a top campaign issue at least for Democrats. Yesterday, we looked at president trump's record. On the issue today, we'll explore toe Biden's plan, which is the most ambitious climate proposal. Any presidential candidate has ever laid out. We've got NPR's Nathan rods and NPR's Jeff Brady both of our climate team with us. Hi, guys good morning. So. Let's just the obviously our Joe Biden and Donald Trump do not exactly agree on climate? Change. Absolutely yeah I think that's a fair way to put it. President trump repeatedly rejects climate science and generally he depicts regulations to address climate. Change is bad for the economy and bad for jobs Joe Biden calls climate change existential threat to our health, our economy, our national security, the whole thing but he's also trying to frame it right now as an opportunity you know when? Donald. Trump thinks about climate change he thinks hoax. When I think about I think jobs. Good paying union opposite put. To work. Building a stronger more. Climate resilient nation I mean nate. That sounds great. But has he laid out a plan for how he would actually make that happen. Yes, and it is a lot Hewitt invest money for one climate. Change is part of his economic recovery plan for the pandemic. But he's also says he'll do executive actions right? Other Gate. He says he's GONNA re enter the Paris climate agreement and put the US back in the global climate conversation He's talking about conserving land for biodiversity stopping offshore drilling in the Arctic. Methane from existing oil and gas tell me when you want me to stop. But he's also putting money towards climate adaptation measures to make communities more resilient to sea level rise flooding hurricanes fires. You know the type of things we've experienced over the last few months and he's also promising massive investments in green energy and infrastructure. This is where the. Jobs part of what he's promising comes in. So that means more solar more wind high speed rail, electric car chargers all with the goal of zeroing out carbon pollution from our electrical sector by twenty, thirty five and making the country carbon neutral. So it's contributing anymore to climate change by twenty fifty. And I mean I know a lot of campaigns I mean the rhetoric is aspirational, right but even so I mean by twenty fifty shifting the entire US economy to be carbon neutral to sounds like a massive undertaking is he going to be able to accomplish that Jeff? You know most of the experts I've talked with thinking is possible. The plan includes a lot of executive actions. The Biden says, he would take right away some of the nature mentioned. It also this plan requires new laws passed by Congress to create policies for meeting that overall goal. Now, that's going to require a democratic majority in the Senate most likely I talked with Scott Siegel. He's a partner with the law firm Bracewell, which represents a lot of energy clients including fossil fuel companies, and you can imagine that they have a lot at stake care. He thinks guidance climate plan is realistic. He says, it includes both regulations and incentives for people. In Industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and I think when a plan has both and doesn't rely only on the carrot or the stick, it's a sign of maturity in approaching these issues. Siegel likes that it leaves room for some fossil fuels with carbon offsets and capture, and he points out that the electric power sector is already on its way to meeting that interim 2035 call some of those companies in utilities are setting net zero carbon goals all on their own. Yeah, and that's an important point. I talked to Karl Frisch who worked at the US Department of Energy under three administrations including trump's she's now at the Rocky Mountain Institute you know and I asked her if she thinks it could all be done by Biden alone if he gets elected. No. So to get where we need to go on climate in the United States to reduce emissions and build a sustainable economy, it takes action by the executive branch action by Congress. And action by state leaders, city leaders, business leaders on the ground, and she says, you know a lot of these actions are already happening at the local level. So a Biden administration would be smart to try to build on that existing momentum. So something we hear president trump attack Joe Biden on a lot is fracking fracking for natural gas. The president alleging that Joe Biden wants to ban it. Let's just clear this up Jeff Does Joe Biden WanNa. Ban fracking. No, he doesn't want to ban fracking. He has repeatedly said that he would not ban all fracking just new fracking on federal land and when trump says that it's aimed at voters and energy producing swing states like Pennsylvania, which actually has very little federal land but that's still a point of contention for for Biden, with mini climate activists who say the country should stop all fracking and keep all fossil fuels in the ground to slow climate change. So. What about the politics of climate change you know I mean we know what the facts are that it is happening that humans have contributed to it as well. But what about the politics of climate change because we know for Republicans it's an incredibly divisive issue where do Democrats stand on Biden's proposals? Well, polling indicates a majority of registered voters in the US view climate change as a real threat to the country, and when you look at Republicans climate change is actually a lot less divisive you get. But in terms of Democrats a recent poll by Pew found that more than two-thirds of Joe Biden supporters sit climate change is very important to them. So Biden's. Plan is not as ambitious as what some Progressive Democrats want to see it is not the green new deal despite what the president repeatedly says, but it is more ambitious than what Joe Biden had initially proposed. So for example, his plan now includes an environmental justice component which would aim to address the fact that people of color are disproportionately affected by pollution climate change and have been for a long time. His plan says he'd do that by investing in disadvantaged communities pulling polluters accountable I talked to Michelle Roberts with the Environmental Justice Health Alliance about this, and she has a long history with Biden because she's actually from Delaware, his home state and she says historically. Always overly supportive when it came to dealing with polluters like dupont over communities like hers he was a Filibuster for the political economy that was running the great state of Delaware. Does that make sense BA- Roberts says she's met with Biden since and she thinks his views have a she supports him but it's going to be important. She says if he's elected to hold them accountable all the things that he's promising to do now. NPR's nate wrought and NPR's Jeff. Brady, thank you for your reporting. Thank you. Thank

"Issue in any time and I think even more so right now it's interesting Rome because if you go back about two months Michelle Roberts executive president of the players union had a quote that made the rounds and and to a lot of people just didn't land all that well at the time where she compared this environment in this bubble attempt to incarceration and at first I'm just gonna be honest I just I thought it was hyperbole but then as time is going on you see these things in these elements that are that are potentially uncomfortable not only for players but for a league in which but eighty five percent of players are black and it is bracelets it's hotlines to snitch on people it's even lifestyle stuff if you're a twenty something year old single guy and I'm not dumb you don't get it twisted this in the grand scheme of things this is not important but you guys they they they have their lives and so now you're being asked to go into a bubble for four months and your if you if your family man you can't see your family until after the first round and if you're not then you know it it's even more problematic to have friends come in it's just incredibly restrictive and the bracelets have not been well received a bailout of concern skepticism suspicion about what the true intent is of those in fact I guess add on to that I had a doctor on on our podcast yesterday Angela Rasmussen from Columbia talking about how in your opinion there's no real discernible evidence that the bracelets to help you detected virus any quicker than than other means and so I felt like that even added to the conversation so a lot of layers to this thing an employer comfort I think it's going to be a major issue in the next month as they get closer to getting to Orlando Sam Amick is a senior NBA writer for the athletic he joins me for a few more moments Sam Washington's diverse bird times reportedly decided to sit out as a preventative measure ahead of being a free agent what's your reaction to that news not surprising I mean for one wizards have less to play for than anybody in the entire twenty two team group as somebody pointed out to me yesterday you're talking about a team that six games back and you have eight games to play on the docking and I think potentially where the NBA might've missed the mark here is that you opened it up too much whether it's twenty teams whether with sixteen teams once you get to a team like the wizards you are just talking about very little incentive to not only play for somebody like garbage because of what he has on the line is going to be a free agent expected to make you know double digit millions of dollars per year on his next contract but the wide if it if you're on that team you you let's say you drop your first game dropped the first two games and and now it's a wrap now you just have six meaningless games you've been asked to come into this incredibly uncomfortable environment and I definitely understand why certain guys wouldn't want to play and especially with the kind of money on the line with a guy like Donna says sentiments on very top you're the co host of the tampering podcast when you think about the fact that you're gonna have teams in Orlando in three hotels you've got potential for a lot of interaction between players and team personnel how much tampering you think Michael on there well my colleague and friend you can share with Strauss at the athletic wrote a piece last week where an executive had coined the phrase age temper palooza that's what he thought it would be out there and I can see that for sure because the structure of the three hotels is such that like if I end up going which is a distinct possibility and being on the inside that would be the media would be sequestered with a lot of NBA staff in one hotel but then the team personnel and the types of GM's and front office executives who traffic in that space would be sharing the same hotel for a very long time and they would all of a sudden from a from a kind of a daily routine standpoint those other GM those other executives of rival teams would be on the very short list of human being that they were allowed to interact with they were allowed to go to dinner with it's a heck of a a little kind of you know just experiment I guess in something we've never seen before because it's one thing to get a bunch of these people together in a Las Vegas summer league setting where a lot of times those types of discussions happen or all star weekend this is on a different level and I think for sure you're gonna have a lot of deal making on a system one last thought dissolve this end after this season or is there a possibility that next season begins without fans as well are definitely anticipate next season beginning without and and I think we won't have fans and this is just me talking but until there's a vaccine if I had to handicap it and now again I'm I'm certainly not a medical expert the doctor we had on yesterday was hopeful that by the end of the next calendar year maybe we could be talking about a vaccine but I just don't see how you have fans in any of the kind of worthwhile capacity until a vaccine isn't something that we all have but for sure I think at the start of next season I don't expect to have fans sensed reiterated the doctor tell you on your podcast that there may not be there may not be a vaccine until the end of the next calendar year correct yeah in fact and and really what what struck me was also the the reminder that there's no guarantee at all ever you know and I think that's just kind of you know medical prudence if you will but she it doctor Rasmussen detailed the heavy lifting in the real specifics of what it takes to achieve a vaccine and signing up thousands of people to take it and then letting them go out into society signing up a few more thousand people giving them a different vaccine letting them go out to society having to track them just to get to the answer of whether or not this actually works I mean it's just incredibly challenging work that is you know seems very uncertain and you know it I mean really in terms of history in this country I believe that the quickest we've ever gotten the vaccines around for years and the technology has changed and hopefully spread that out but but I don't think there's any clarity on that front at all he is a senior NBA writer for the athletic co host of the tampering podcast no one better Sam Amy exam so good to have you back really appreciate it great to have you on the show thanks for coming the good brother states exam stay safe thank you very much good how back really good at Sam back all right then some sobering thoughts right there on a reminder of what we're dealing with like you might be sick of Kobe nineteen it is not sick of you and I've got thoughts on that which I'll get to later on perhaps top of the hour I've got PGA tour pro Chris Kirk also next hour winner of the

ESPN two series has shifted back to Washington each team has one on each other's home court so that really has it been a factor we'll talk about that we're also going to talk about the drama in La a lot going on there so recent comments by the NBA Players Association I don't know if she CEO President one of those Michelle Roberts has sparked a lot of conversation we'll get into that and I'm yeah whatever else we've talked about well first of all DEB I just want to ask you because we covered allow last podcast you weren't here you didn't even get to number one address your Vegas team that you picked to win the championship and why they're not here you're in all the drama with Liz us you didn't even get to comment on that would you care. Is there anything you want to address from the semi finals the Erica shot like you just totally have been absent I really have let's see I for one I still oh dear dinner for her shot and keeping alive just long enough to make it past y'all teams you tell picked the beginning of the season so at the end of the day really taking her to dinner Garretta when you're in Chicago let me know I got you love the list trash talk that you know it's really exciting really being what would the weight room thing do for us you were on the other team like Oh yeah I it was a I think it was poor timing however I live for stuff like that so I've had I was thoroughly enjoying the comments because I am the Queen's trash talking so I enjoyed it I don't think it was the property the time that that fire DC up to be honest Yeah I I don't think it was the right time for it but I mean I like the trash talking I mean I I'm pretty sure didn't Natasha Clouds Day she guarantees the wind Thursday I'm here for all of his arms well let me just say this real quick like honestly not tweeted this yesterday this is just a little prayer by listening we're going to get into the hardcore seven-minute but this trash talkers the thing has started to get a little bit I tweeted this because I think I heard Jasmine Thomas in what was it Oh yes the game the presser after game four she was like you know people were thinking we're GonNa roll over like basically responding to a question about the get to the championship and I'm like who still saying stuff about Connecticut like I am all for the disrespect campaign because I think it's fueled their players is fire them up uh I'm just speaking of someone who would played on the other team like I'm a little bit over like Courtney Williams saying I get any shot I want to like if I'm your teammate I'm like dude food chill with that because the game three she actually didn't get every shot she wanted to you know what I mean like you gotTa be real careful about the trash-talk stuff because you said you can fire team up I think Connecticut completely fired up about things that people were saying July like please resurrected if that's we do but I don't think anyone has really questioned in being a championship contender in at least the last month and a half now the way they've done it yes I mean did I think La was win again yeah but I just don't know there's just so much I don't know about that now the role player comment that came out was definitely ember that was not in July and when you look at the national coverage if you will about who decidedly was supposed to win aw nobody picked Connecticut I know here espn all of our analysts who decided to make a prediction predicted that it would be Washington so I don't think the deal would that's that's very listen that's still very relevant that people pick Washington because we have a game by like that you have won anything yet you know what I'm saying like I don't know I don't think I picked La to make it. I Don I bic La to make it past Connecticut so but no but they didn't know that Ah I mean I think as a player as a as a player I think that you don't say that out loud you may say it on the court and you may talk to you you know like the teams but saying it you know in the media is always smart 'cause they just give you know like fuel to the other team I think you have to be smart with your trash talking but as a fan I'm enjoying it so much more exciting so I'm I'm here for it I just feel bad that jasmine had to arrest that at this point like they've already won two games in the finals or going to a game five she's still talking about people thinking that they were GonNa roll over like I seen that but I get what you're saying about the role players commentary go which okay that's fine but they've been doing a lot more out here than that it's brilliant it's entertaining I just get worried we're people start doing too much happened because I know what that does the other team you know what I mean like Liz campaigns now knows what that does to the other team like you just need to you need to stay humble because it was dying to Rasi they had to shut Courtney Williams down two years in a row because she got a little bit out of pocket and I love Corny I've covered her since her US days I think she is great for the game I'm loving all the coverage of her and her dad is like dream dad right like he is down he is like supporters aw I'm all here for this to be real careful in this league honey because people never forgets no and you're gonna hear about it later so they better back then yeah you sure will and with that let's talk about let's go into our first quarter so we can talk about something and I'm Connecticut WanNa forget this quarter An- that is game three they wanNA forget that because they latorre L- game three on on Sun a Sunday so just like a quick recap on that so that we can get into what was a phenomenal game for Connecticut Lost Ninety four eighty one on Sunday they look like a very different team I'm just the game before John Clo- Jones had a stellar performance thirty two and eighteen but Sunday came around the MVP returned for one. Washington didn't really look I thought she looked stiff personally didn't think that she moved very well but it Kinda didn't matter she still finished with thirteen points six board she's still played twenty six minutes and whether you've got her for ten percent or one hundred percent you still got a garter you still got to worry about her she's still going to impact Act anybody that is going to have to face her so with that Connecticut was looking at a losing home court or had lost court advantage heading in to gain four they were down in the series two one but last night was a tale of two teams they started the game out firing on cylinders I mean they put together quite a first half performance on they led by as much as eighteen points they were up fifty six to forty at the half and so four we go into the second half of of how that game turned out I'm right after the halftime I'm sorry right before Halftime me Williams actually stopped for a moment to chat with our Holly Rowe and she spoke a little bit about why her team was so energized etiquette game five Thursday Courtney Williams doing her best to make that happen holly according to your defensive commitment is completely different tonight why did you change what did I tell you gotTa Win I you know I was a little bit off last game all back against the wall can't take no plays off you already got more is confidence and guess what she has the game back it up 'cause she doesn't need a screen she don't need anybody step up and do anything for her she could go get shots what she wants them now I thought we were talking about three looks like we're talking about gay four now yeah we're not gonNA spend too much time on game three that's because one we are limited on our time on this podcast right now and number two because Connecticut Connecticut Fan so we're moving fast at eight Dave I'll let you start which you think I thought in game force initially I mean Connecticut had great energy and you clearly saw that this was a deciding game and they do that and that's how they came out and they came out ready and but I also felt like DC they didn't look like themselves in the first half they're known for moving the ball really well in and getting good shots making the right pass and it felt like in the first half they were playing hon of one on one and not moving like they do in making extra passes and it showed because they weren't getting shot and when you're playing a team Connecticut who's great in transition you have to be able to put the ball in the basket and slow them down so I felt like you know Connecticut was able to really do what they wanted to do in the first half but then being a vet- team DC came back out in the second half and just knew what they have to do in turn the tables and we're able to

Adam, you've talked a lot. About the possibility of creating a midseason tournament of some kind, do you have any sense of where with the players association coming to an agreement on that, and do you sense any interest on their part in, in doing so it's, it's much too early to have a real sense of where we are with the players, sociation, only because we're in the early planning process of investigating whether there really is an opportunity, it would need to be negotiated with the players association. I've had very general discussions with Michelle Roberts about the notion that these are the kinds of things we're looking at I think, she, of course, is supportive of looking at any ideas, we have to build the business over time. But there's nothing concrete that we've brought to the players, those Haitians that is this something you'll support, as, you know, Canada's traditionally Hoti country, however things changed a little bit year. And I think mostly Canadians will be watching the NBA finals.

"Youth sports is a fancy word for gaming, which is a fancier word for video games. But please put away your preconceived notion or stereotypes of what you think video games because the budding business is raking in millions Rodrick lamantia is a serial entrepreneur in media startups. He was part of an entertainment that was sold to news corps for six hundred fifty million dollars back in two thousand five but recently alimony has turned his attention to the east sports world. He's partnered with some of the legends and gaming to create ready up ready up as a platform that connects gamers at all levels of play alimony and ready up are betting big on east sports this past fall. They raised two million in capital tonight. A conversation about the future of sports east sports Rodrick alimony is in town for the world conference. He's my guest in studio Rodrick, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. First of all you were at the conference. And all of it was about transforming the world. I think that the thread was blurred. Correct. You spoke at the conference. What did you tell people? Yeah. Well, we were talking about partnerships and experiences one of the things that we're doing it ready up is we've partnered with the NBA players association and one of the experiences that were in the process of executing shortly his for fans to be able to engage some of the top NBA stars who are huge gamers and essentially connect with them through through game. I can't even believe that that would be. I just flashed back to me being fifteen years old and thinking, I could play Glen Rice. Glad right. It's that's crazy. That is the future this opportunity to do all these different experiences with real people in a virtual world was interesting about the process. We connected with the MVP a in July or August of last year. And we had a really great conversation with Michelle Roberts. He's the executive director of her coach was we realize gaming wasn't gonna be the pet rock that was here to stay thinks that ninety nine percent of the basketball players play video games. And a funny story, she told us she was out with some of the night, and after dinner, she was telling them mail, you guys. Go home don't get into trouble. And she said we guy's gonna do. And they said we're going to go we're gonna do some fortnight. And she said, where's that club? Located. Fortnight leads us a good place to start because east sports has has been on the forefront of of our culture for the last couple of decades now, but fortnight has brought it to a new level. You're starting to see it permeate culture in a way that it's like you said, it's no longer the pet rocket is the rock. Do you need games? Like fortnight and experiences like that that come along to get the business of east sports into a higher level of visibility. Fortnight was great for the industry on a couple levels. One of the interesting things about fortnight was you actually saw a lot of girls and women playing it. But actually more girls I'd say at the high school level traditionally video games as being focused on, you know, males eighteen to thirty four. This was a really interesting crossover. At least in the kind of the more hardcore concerned more hardcore gaming side of the business. When you look at mobile games there. Obviously massively populated by women games like candy crush inside. But this was a game. Yeah. And what he why why what is it about fortnight from your estimated that that made it so popular. Well, you know, it was kind of the combination of Minecraft meets I came called div, which was the first really popular battle royale that kind of came more mass market the growth curve on both of these games was tremendous. I mean, literally zero to several tens of millions of users in a very short period of time. Perfect example fortnight the next game that came along Gwen called apex legends. Which is another battle royale published by EA that believe they went from zero to forty million in literally weeks as opposed to month. So it's amazing. The think about the victory right now. And you as someone who reading your background, you got your starting starting media startups. How do you get from there to east sports? I've been kind of working in startup since nineteen ninety five I was working at an ad agency on the media side. It's a really fun story. We had Microsoft is account and literally with. Public eight months before windows ninety five launch. I remember that you're old enough to remember the windows lunch was huge. They needed a an online planned back then online met getting online through or prodigy or CompuServe and no one really cared about it. And so it was hey, give it to the young twenty something year olds who care about that stuff. We're dealing with TV, and we're dealing with print, and we launched when designing five on the internet. I met Infoseek which was the first search engine to ever do putting ad banners with keywords, which Google obviously since I've absolutely perfect. That's the heart and soul of it. Now. Right. Yeah. And the crazy part was Infoseek actually recruited me became the first sales higher there that wasn't an executive. What did you learn about that experience that you keep with you several years later with ready up persevere when you're kind of on the cutting edge. I mean, literally four sixty eight by sixty ads were considered a crazy new ad unit. Which is something that we're like thinking, whatever, you know, it took time it didn't happen overnight. It took. God probably six to nine months, and you just had to persevere when you're working in startups and subsequent startups after that. And even the one ready up. Do you have to remind people around you might be new to that business that it takes time that it's not something that's an overnight flash in the pan. Even even if there is success. Absolutely. It's hard. You're the wise old man in the. Thanks for calling me. It's one of those things where it doesn't happen overnight. And you get a lot of nose into lot education after left Infoseek fortunate. We got acquired by Disney who had those back in the internet heydays when he worked at entertainment, I dot com. We were kind of more hardcore gaming focused. We weren't doing a lot of ad revenue with the video game publishers who are spending all their money in print so which just a function of time and working my ass off and suddenly boom exploded. And the long story short was we took the company private at twenty six million. And we ended up selling to News Corp for six hundred fifty million mazing, and for you to be a young entrepreneur to be in a position where you're seeing that kind of money. What does it do to you? Because you're not getting the Sixers a lot that goes into getting six hundred fifty million. But but the wind to be a startup an entrepreneur the win on on getting that cell has been huge Infosec. We went public literally within public. I don't even remember year or two had been there. I mean had gone from making eighteen thousand dollars a year living in San Francisco, which is just ridiculous. I remember go out and spend forty dollars a night. And be like, oh, man. I'm done. I'm done to working at a company that went public, and it's completely life-changing. It's very life changing. And you know, it's one of those things where you know. It's probably live arrogant when in your twenties when you've come into that sort of success. Luckily, my wife who've married to what twenty four years now this year, or I'm sorry, nineteen years this year, we together forty four and you know, she was kind of person who kept me in check so these so

"michelle roberts" Discussed on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA

"Don't miss these athletes cap off their college careers in the reese's college all star game. So the twenty four hour home of CBS sports. The number is eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven eight five five two one two forty to twenty seven. If you want to join the conversation because I want to spend the next ten minutes or so on the latest with Kristaps Porzingis. Not sure if you saw it last night a report from Adrian whoa, generosity from ESPN. But I'll just read you the first couple of grass because it is a bizarre story. Here's the latest again from whoa, JR. At ESPN dot com. Eight months after a twenty nine year old woman said NBA star. Kristaps Porzingis raped her inside his apartment, she contacted the New York Knicks Knicks legal department to seek to quote mediate in private a payment of sixty eight thousand dollars. According to emails obtained by ESPN at the time of the women's documented communication with the Knicks legal staff late October through early November. No criminal complaint had been filed with New York police, the Knicks eventually referred the woman to foreseeing things personal legal representation. ESPN attained a series of text messages between the woman importing it says, well as emails between her and the Knicks the text emails portray a woman who wanted to pursue a romantic relationship with Porzingis in the aftermath of the alleged assault in February two thousand eighteen but who also wanted him to honor what she says was his commitment to contribute sixty eight thousand dollars to a college fine for her brother, according to the emails the woman who lived in the same apartment building as porzingas told the Knicks that she went to prestigious department to get his autograph in the late night hours after porzingas suffered a serious knee injury at Madison Square Garden on February six two thousand eighteen after what the woman told the Knicks was an extremely. The aggressive encounter. She said Porzingis agreed to co-sign a statement with her that promised a payment of sixty eight thousand dollars per attorney has told ESPN statement that he believes the document is a forgery. So ESPN won't got a chance to look at this document. And it's like. Written on a piece of paper. I Christopher forseeing guess agreed to pay sixty eight thousand dollars to a college fund to this woman for reasons so on and so forth, but his name's actually misspelled on the document, and when porzingis's attorneys asked the woman for the original documents, so that they can have a handwriting specialist examine it because porzingas just saying I I never wrote that I never signed that she declined to give up the document. And so what she is alleging is that she was raped sexually assaulted by Porzingis. In the year two thousand eighteen and then for several months, she tried to just get a sixty eight thousand dollar payment from him to pay for her brothers, her younger brothers college tuition. Ultimately, she couldn't get anything done with him. So she took it to the Knicks. Couldn't get anything done with the Knicks. So then she eventually takes it to police. And that's where we are now. But there's a pretty telling quote from Michelle Roberts who is the executive director of the NBA players association that I think tells you just about all you need to know about these allegations about this case, here's the statement. She issue. She said we have been aware of these allegations for some time have evaluated the accusers claims and based on what is presently before us stand with Kristaps in quote. And the reason I think that tells you everything you need to know about this situation is because we live in a world. Now where these safest thing you can do. And let's just probably the the best thing you can do. But certainly, the safest thing you can do is not be dismissive of accusers when it comes to sexual assault or inappropriate behavior. You believe them until you have no reason to believe them. Anything short of that gets you in a a messy situation. More often than not. And so if you'll knowledge that's true. A woman who is the executive director of the National Basketball players association issuing a statement where she's essentially saying we've been aware of these allegations we've taken everything into account, and we stand with Christopher. That's her saying, we don't believe this woman. Her story is not credible. We don't believe this happened the way that she describes it or possibly at all. And there is no scenario where somebody as prominent and powerful as Michelle Roberts would release a statement like that. Unless they were very very sure that this woman story, the accuser story just does not hold up to scrutiny. Or really even on a surface level. The details are bizarre. I would encourage you to go read it at ESPN dot com. But for the head of the players association to come out already and say, yes, one of our players has been accused by a woman of sexual assault. But we stand with him. That means that. Whatever has already been made public, and I'm confident not all details have been made public. But even what has been made public makes it seem. Like, a not believable story the stuff that they must have that hasn't been made public yet. Must blow it out of the water. Like, this is just with all due respect. They woman who. Cannot be believed. Her story does not make sense. There's text messages between her and porzingas for months after the alleged altercation where she not just asking for money or threatening to do this or that. But as reports pursuing a romantic relationship with Kristaps Porzingis. And so when you combine that with the fact that Michelle Roberts someone who's too smart to release statements if they could come back to haunt her. When you combine it with the fact that she's released a statement that says we stand with Kristaps Porzingis that suggests to me that this is not going to go any further than it's already gone, and that the most likely scenario here has the woman the accuser paying a price for these allegations more so than than ever will. And the reason this is important is because when you hear the allegations initially as reported a woman has accused a former Nick star and current Dallas maverick of sexual assault again, terrible headline in anytime. But especially in the world in which we live now in these times. It can be a scary thing. You don't know if the Mavericks have just made a incredible mistake by dealing for him. You don't know if his professional career is in some sort of jeopardy. And yet as we sit here now on April second it. It seems pretty clear that. I think it's going to be back on a basketball court at some point whenever he's clear to play presumably in time for next season. And that these negative headlines that create incredible Google searches. Aren't going to lead to anything that's going to derail his career or damage in any way. It is. And this is worth pointing out and important to note statistically, improbable for a woman to fabricate a story about sexual assault. I'm more often than not a win. A man is accused of inappropriate behavior. What studies have found is that it's because he was inappropriate. But this seems to be the exception to that again evidence being that Michelle Roberts executive director of the National Basketball players association has already come out and released a statement that says based on what we know and the evidence that we've reviewed we stand with Kristaps Porzingis. It'd be a bad move for a woman and somebody that powerful. But especially a woman who has that powerful to stand with someone who's been accused of sexual assault, and by definition against somebody who is accusing somebody of sexual assault. The fact that Michelle roberts's comfortable enough to do that. Suggests that. She feels like she's in a good place. And this porzingas story is is not gonna go. Where maybe initially. It looked like it might go NBC sports. Rob Dawson gonna join me in the next segment talk final four with him. But first, here's an update rich Ackerman. Sports play Gary.

"At ESPN dot com. Eight months after twenty nine year old woman said NBA star. Kristaps Porzingis raped her inside his apartment, she contacted the New York Knicks New York Knicks legal department to seek to mediate in private a payment of sixty eight thousand dollars. According to e mails obtained by ESPN at the time of the women's documented communication with the Knicks legal staff late October through early November. No criminal complaint had been filed with New York police, the Knicks eventually referred the woman to as personal legal representation. ESPN attained a series of text messages between the woman importing it says well as emails between her and the Knicks the texts. Emails portray a woman who wanted to pursue a romantic relationship with Porzingis in the aftermath of the alleged assault in February two thousand eighteen but who also wanted him to honor what she says was his commitment to contribute sixty eight thousand dollars to a college fund for her brother, according to the emails the woman who lived in the same apartment building as porzingas told the Knicks that she went to percents department to get his autograph in the late night hours after porzingas suffered a serious knee injury at Madison Square Garden on February six two thousand eighteen after what the woman told the Knicks was an extremely. Progressive encounter. She said Porzingis agreed to co-sign a statement with her that promised a payment of sixty eight thousand dollars per attorney has told ESPN Avia statement that he believes the document is a forgery so ESPN. Whoa. Dj got a chance to look at this document. And it's like. Written a piece of paper. I Christopher Porzingis agreed to pay sixty eight thousand dollars to a college fund to this woman for reasons so on and so forth, but his name's actually misspelled on the document, and when porzingus attorneys asked the woman for the original documents. So that they can have a handwriting specialist examined it because porzingas is just saying I I never wrote that I never signed that she declined to give up the document. And so what she is alleging is that she was raped sexually assaulted by Porzingis. In the year two thousand eighteen and then for several months, she tried to just get a sixty eight thousand dollar payment from him to pay for her brothers, her younger brothers college tuition. Ultimately, she couldn't get anything done with him. So she took it to the Knicks. Couldn't get anything done with the Knicks. So then she eventually takes it to police. And that's where we are now. But there's a pretty telling quote from Michelle Roberts who is the executive director of the NBA players association that I think tells you just about all you need to know about these allegations about this case, here's the statement. She issue she said we have been aware of these allegations for some time have valuated the accusers claims and based on what is presently before us stand with Kristaps in quote. And the reason I think that tells you everything you need to know about this situation is because we live in a world. Now where the safest thing you can do. And let's just probably the the best thing you can do. But certainly, the safest thing you can do is not be dismissive of accusers when it comes to sexual assault or inappropriate behavior. You believe them until you have no reason to believe them. Anything short of that. Gets you in a a messy situation. More often than that. And so if your knowledge that's true. A woman who is the executive director of the National Basketball players association issuing a statement where she's essentially saying we've been aware of these allegations we've taken everything into account, and we stand with Kristaps. That's her saying, we we don't believe this woman. Her story is not credible. We don't believe this happened the way that she describes it or possibly at all. And there is no scenario where somebody as prominent and powerful as Michelle Roberts would release a statement like that. Unless they were very very sure that this woman story, the accuser story just does not hold up to scrutiny. Or really even on a surface level. The details are bizarre. I would encourage you to go read it at ESPN dot com. But for the head of the players association to come out already and say, yes, one of our players has been accused by a woman of sexual assault. But we stand with him. That means that whatever it has already been made public, and I'm confident not all details have been made public. But even what has been made public makes it seem.

There's text messages between her and porzingas for months after the alleged altercation where she's not just asking for money or threatening to do this or that. But as world reports pursuing a romantic relationship with Kristaps Porzingis. And so. When you combine that with the fact that Michelle Roberts someone who's too smart to release statements if they could come back to haunt her. When you combine it with the fact that she's released a statement. That says we stand Kristaps Porzingis that suggests to me that this is not going to go any further.

"But continued to follow basketball. I was season ticket holder in Washington where I lived at the time, and when I found out about the job, frankly, the notion of being able to represent group of men that might be where the. Greatest athletes on the planet to again, resolve issues. I didn't view it as too terribly different again from what I was doing at the time. But it did me, and I could work with men that I didn't know yet. But I was fired all respected always. And so the minute it became an option, and I began to think about it. I couldn't stop thinking about it. And then the more thought about more realize I realize that this had to put my my my name out there and all worked out, Michelle Roberts. She's been the executive director of National Basketball players association since twenty fourteen you've gotta see being in place for twenty twenty four the truth. Ensure Lieber piece when you're in these periods when there's a long time before the major negotiations get underway again. And the big overall contract is at issue. What is the job like on a day-to-day basis? Well, the good news in my perspective. At least is that. There's no day that exactly. Like the last they are sometimes very small problems. Sometimes they're very large problems. But the good news is I say is that it it's it's not not predictable. And to me, that's that's kind of important. I liked having something that the element of surprise is that where there's no CBS negotiate it. But, but it's not the case that we there on issues that do crop up that require under stations between the league and the PA. And so we do have in my call the mini CBA negotiations. Because again, the big the larger issues have been pretty much resolved. Sometimes they sometimes relate to play discipline player movement as new economic options that that crop up. I mean, we are now in the midst of having just taken back on group licensing ride. So there's a marketing issues that we're working working our way through. I'm paying some in this. There's no secret we're paying some attention to the G league. Now in a way that the lease the league is expanding the G league footprint. I've always been interested in in in the international game. And again, that's the good news is league as well. So I'm excited about the prospects of having a new league in Africa. So again, it depends upon what day of the week tomorrow will not be I know anything like today, which was nothing like yesterday. And that's all fine. It'd be just finished our winter board meeting with the players and ended up giving some two new executive committee members voted on. So it just depends upon the day. One of us. Of course, that you know, you are apparently going to be negotiating in the very near term. If you haven't already started with league, it self is no show of getting rid of the one in done in college. Lowering the age the minimum age nineteen to eighteen you know, what we hear from. League is that you generally agree that it should be lowered. But a framework has to be put into place where do you stand now on it on the age limit? Yeah. I it's again, no secrets personally. And I said this five years ago, even when I got the job and people seem to be concerned about what I thought personally, I've always been offended by the one and done. I did not understand why this sports now necessary to prevent a young person who was willing and able and somebody was willing and able to to hire them and pay them to play. When was not allowed to do that had to sit out of years. I've never thought that the rule made sense. That was me personally, as it turns out are are PA degrees that this is a rule that is that is worthy of reconsideration and hopefully removal so again, no secret we are in talks with the league. And you're correct were generally in agreement that that this is something we need to take a look at him sin. But like everything it's the devils in the details, we need to make sure that as we do this. We do it in the way. Obviously protects the game. But just as obviously these players both earned and new I think we'll get we'll get there. I think we'll get there soon. But it does it does require some additional discussion. Michelle, I guess there is a perception that the relationship between NBA players and your union and league office is a model for other leagues that there is generally speaking, a high degree of cooperation mutual understanding, Utah respect that's where it looks like from the outside. What does it look like from the inside? And I've heard that as well. And frankly, I I'm always pleased to hear that. Because it's always occurred to me as a litigator that that if you walk into a room with the resolution to resolve the problem as opposed to the resolution to fight you'll probably get to resolution a lot sooner than you would otherwise when I first got the job, and I met Adam Silva I'd shared with him my philosophy about how to resolve conflicts. And lo and behold that turns out he shared it. So we don't walk in. I don't walk in. And he'd hasn't walked into difficult decision with his fists balled up. And I don't either we we can't get rid of each other. If something we wanted to the league needed to players, I'm say the players don't the league. But that's a loud that the players need to leak. Okay. I wanna Gatien. Generous that we don't intend to to get a divorce. That means we've got to make sure that the marriage works out. And so not gonna would be we've had some fights. We've had some major disagreements and we've had to talk through some things. But what I've noticed when I'm pleased about is. That is that I have no reason to disrespect the disag- disagreement anymore than I think Adam does as well. I mean, we can reasonable people can disagree. We have sometimes interests that really truly aren't competing. And so rather than walk around been skinned. We'd just say, okay. We know we've got to resolve it's doing and we've done that. I as much as I love, litigation, and and I guess to some extent, I miss it, litigation is what happens when you just can't talk to each other. Then have somebody else after decided for you? There's nothing worse. If if I'm Linda. If I'm the litigator as opposed to the lawyer representing litigator. I don't want anyone deciding anything for me, I was at it myself. So rather than find myself suing the league or having finding myself being sued by the league and having some judge or jury resolve it for us. I think we've agreed that we avoid that and sit down and get to a place where no one is necessarily delighted with the outcome. But we both can live with it. That's what we operate it. And I I'm sometimes sad. When I see some of our counterparties in the other sports in court battling it out all the time. I respect that they are working very hard for their respective constituents. But just as well do it outside of the purview of of a quick speaking Michelle Roberts runs the NBA players union. The National Basketball players Suzy emiss-, I've covered workshop ges and the other sports I've ever worked stoppages in the NBA over the last twenty five years, you guys are in a place now especially in last five years since you took over the union where the. Players are so empowered. They are the envy of the sports world certainly North America among the professional sports leagues. What does player empowerment mean to you as a concept, essentially to me, I'm in the context of this sport being able to exercise as much independence as works within the construct that we've all agreed to operate under. I mean by that we've got a we're gonna sound with cats. So we've got we've got limitations on the amount of my guys can make there are rules or concerns of the specter competitive balance. And so there's some again this contract, which I didn't create mind you this game has been they've been as you know, CB's that that predated me and they've been battles and muck out in Baucau out and all kinds of things to get to where we are. But then the construct. They are. Things designed to try to enhance competitive balance. So they've been restrictions on player movement. Restrictions on player. Movement restrictions on player salaries. They are a lot of restrictions. This is not a free market in pre market system. Where you and you get you go where you want whenever you want. You get what you get paid whatever you can get. I mean, there are this. This contract was on told created in order to keep the game alive and not allow for dominance of of one team over the others. So play a play the power that the players has that I try to make sure that they have is what what what what is available within the four corners of the concept of the construct without without compromise. If there's there's there's no another words reason for the players to agree to to restrictions that don't otherwise enhanced down lives as players or enhance the game. And so when our players are able to do is is is what makes sense what obviously being compliant with CVA. But the CVA despite all of its restrictions does allow for some some player freedoms. And we make sure the players aware of them what? But treat them, and they have and then that they fully exploited them. There's no reason that they shouldn't. There's no reason that they can't as and as it turns out. There's no reason that they don't despite the fact that sometimes people are happy about it. There's not a thing that we that players done that has not been consistent with their rights of the so it simply exercising the rights that you have under them. And then the context of the of the contract. Nothing. More Michelle Roberts runs the player's union. That being said I would be remiss if I didn't ask you about what's been going on with Anthony Davis and the Lakers. Lebron Rich Paul a lot of people find the situation problematic. I think to put it mildly as the person who runs the day to day at the. Union that represents both LeBron until just last days. I guess was on your executive committee. What was your perspective on the drama? That's that's a complicated questions that complicated. But the answer may be a little there are as I mentioned to minute ago. There are certainly restrictions on player movement. And you know, you can be if you're in the middle of a contract, you can't say, I would you can. But then you've been in violation the contract. But you gotta you gotta stay play into the contract is that once your contract is about to expire. Everybody knows that you will soon have a choice now to the extent. I don't I'm not too. I agree with the decision to find Anthony. Because of what his agent said. But at the end of the day what we learned presumably was that. He doesn't doesn't he no longer west play in Orleans. I don't know why. Except if I were in New Orleans fan, I'm gonna why that's so upsetting because he did not required to stay in piping. New Orleans issue is whether or not he should saying that, and that's where we get as to whether or not this violation CBA, but. I love the drama surrounding some of these issues because it's like I'm talking about our players, and it's kinda fun. That's a minute. And it keeps keeps talk show guys busy. So it's kinda fun. You know, come on. I would rather know that he doesn't plan wanna play here sooner rather later if I'm the New Orleans if I'm the New Orleans pelicans. But I don't think it's it hurts our game for players to in one way or the other express their preferences in terms of where they like to play that went to the options, presented

"Welcome to the sporting life with Jeremy shabby. Over the next hour a conversation with the executive director of the NBA players union, Michelle Roberts. You don't need to know bunch of one hundred our words and beacon complicated sentences, but you do have to take complicated and complex concept and be able to communicate explain relate people again in a way, that's the hand Roberts gives her honest assessment of the ethnic Davis situation than it kinda find that the minute talk show guys visit kind of fun. I actually have been amused by it, and I think now we're all wait to see whether he's gonna end up a lot of people talking about our game. And that's a good thing. Plus it is final season of his story career. Tim Howard discussions the growth of soccer in America. When I look at the scope of my career, he works October was in America where now it really special. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy shop. Welcome to another edition, the sporting like the buzz around the NBA its players is arguably at an all time high, and it's one of the many subjects we'll discuss later in the show with the executive director of the National Basketball players association, the head of the union for NBA players Michelle Roberts, but I today were joined by my old friend, dear colleague, the one and only Lisa Saulters. Lisa. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me. Jeremy as it happens. We're sitting here in in-studio it's Friday afternoon, March first in Bristol, Connecticut, and we've had this book for some time. But there was some breaking news. Yesterday regarding your Monday night football colleague, erstwhile colleague, Jason Witten. Where were you when you heard the news that Jason is returning to the Dallas Cowboys for sixteenth season? I had gotten a massage, and I could maybe can make a joke, but I'm not going to. And I've gotten a massage a real one normal wind. And I was I wasn't even and that connection, but go ahead. And you know, I got off the table. And I looked at my phone, and I got all these had all these texts from friends saying Jason witness and coming back to ESPN, I'm like have no idea. And so I just Google Jason Witten. And you know, there was that he wasn't. And I was like well, apparently not this news to me in about a half hour later Jason called called me, and we talked for a little bit. And he's just he's a really great guy. You know, he just says he had to follow his heart. It you could tell that he missed it last year. And even at the Pro Bowl, he just he hung out with those cowboy pals a his like almost the entire time. We'd be like Jason it's time for dinner. We're having dinner, and he'd be off like a little kid playing with his, you know, for routine mates at their table. So, you know, wish him well, it was it was oakwood. The desire. I mean, he's a Greek editor is one of the great tight ends ever in the NFL one of the great Cowboys from my perspective. I get it. I it's just like it's football. It's a rough sport. And he had a great fifteen years, and he has a great job at ESPN. It just seems like look I understand the competitive fire was still burning within him. But it just seemed like who time to go away. I mean, he's I I actually thought that remember November we were in Seattle for Monday night game. And that Sunday night. A story broke may been Adam Schefter who broke it that that the Cowboys had been trying to Jason back to remember that. And so we were kind of all like, you know, a little stunned then like, oh is he leaving. And you know, the ride over to practice in the car together as a little awkward until Finally I was like, so what's up? Jason. Are you are you saying you what's going on? He's like, I it's, you know. Just no, I'm not I'm not going anywhere. Like, this is you know, I gave you know, you guys my word I'm going to be here for the whole season. So I actually thought that that made more sense because the bulk of the season was over. So he really only had to play another month. And the Cowboys were already set up for success. They just may be needed that one extra piece, and I said to him in the car, I was like, hey, you know, our producer was like don't rush out the door. Like, I'm not. I'm just saying like you're telling me for four weeks he can work and go to have a chance of a Super Bowl. I'd say go go do it. But you know, we're speaking with Lisa salters who I've worked with for many years who continues to stellar work at ESPN hosting reporting from the sidelines doing feature stories doing so many different things. And I don't want to take up our whole discussion talking about Jason Witten. What do you find gratifying about sports? I've always been a sports fan. Athlete and. Was it wasn't happily earth twenty twenty five years ago, but I've always been a sports fan. But what I love about what I do is that I can be a person in the sports is just kind of like a side thing side part of it. So we get to find out like, I think we have like one of the best jobs that as we get to like until sit don't tell me about we get to sit down and deep dive with people and find out about what makes them human and about the same stuff that, you know, makes us interesting. Our families. Our friends are our children, and you get to do that with these athletes and many times, they're know the fact that there are an elite athlete is just kind of like a side thing, you know, from all the east sixty stories that we do sometimes sports has a very tangential part of Pacific of the great store of a great story. So that that's kind of what I liked the most about what we do in. This is something that we see in your reporting so often it really is about the humanity of the people. We're talking to you know, it's not about the statistics. It's not about just the biography. But it's about what makes them tick what shape them as human beings in sports is really to an extent greater than any other kind of reporting a place where we allow ourselves to dig deeply into people in a way that you don't in general news, you don't in financial reporting, or, you know, maybe entertainment repression because it's about the personalities, but sports is is different in that respect that it really is about you sit down with someone interview them for three hours or something like that for these e sixty pieces, you're going deep, right? And just finding out the things that you would never think, you know, that there are people just like you are that they have the same problems that you have the same concerns. You know, maybe a child that sick or a parent that sick or an illness that they have overcome themselves just challenges that they've overcome in life same stuff that that we all deal with and that for me. That's the one thing that I always. Try to do is because whenever we go. Do these interviews with people I feel like they're entrusting us with their life, not literally, but they're entrusting story. And so when what despite what might be going on with me, I feel like I need to give them a hundred percent of me. So there are oftentimes where you're you're distracted or could be distracted. Because you know, you're worried about childcare or you worrying about someone your family who sick or you worried that you might be sick or whatever I feel like when you're sitting down in that chair across from somebody. They should have all of you. And when they give it to you when they give you all of themselves. That's the most gratifying thing that

"Williamson has eight million dollar insurance policy out of three million dollar Lloyd's of London contract that number still pales in comparison to the number of that he would have gotten with a Nike contract. You're talking about Nathlie who potentially could get one hundred million dollar shoe deal. Now grant, you know, his knees. Okay. He's fine. But if he were to blow his knee out. Yes, he would make eight million dollars that is still ninety two million dollars less than he would have made. If you would have had one hundred million dollars you deal. I heard sound Barnum talk about this. And this is what I said last night as soon as this holding happened. This brings up a bigger issue to me. This is something that Michelle Roberts ahead of the players union. Also, Adam silver, and they need to work on with Chris Paul and Andre good. Dalla the head of the players union on the players side in the next CBA deal players should be allowed to leave high school directly from high school. To the NBA. Now, I don't know what the conclusion is are making players stay in college. Once they commit to college. And I know that there's alternative options where it's can go overseas. I get all that. But the amount of money. That's Williamson could have had being the eighth wonder of the world from a highlight perspective for a shoe like Nike or Puma or anybody trying to get into this game new balance who offer quiet, Leonard a boatload of money is exponentially greater that he could have got high school. Then what could have happened in Casey got her? And Laura I heard you earlier if he blows out his name, I don't know if he's a bona fide first pick in the draft. There's he already had issues with his knee a couple of years ago in high school. These are things that people will start to worry about if the if the injury was worse than where it is the one thing I will throw into the conversation just in this. And I know Seth Greenberg is going to jump in with us in a second. Here is being at Duke has definitely increased his value from shoe contract standpoint. Yeah, he was a social media fee.
