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

But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

"And we'll send our clips and will reach out. To the MBA and kind of make our points noted. And whether, whether them going through the proper channels affected tonight or not. I have no idea the MBA does a great job of listening. And then hopefully you hope that next game, maybe some most vows or called and by the way, I love that he's doing that It zone coaching. One of what it's it's from the pamphlet. Hey, listen, this is what you do your backs up against the wall. Go for anything. But 35 to 23. I mean, we've seen situations where it's like 46 to 19 where the discrepancy is so wide that you cannot justify it. 35 23. You know a lot of those about of those attempt, and I know he had 88 attempts of Marie, but a lot of the buckets were were fall the ways and spinners using his pivot foot going away from the room you're going to get that call know exactly well, bt that was the same thing that LeBron's complaints. What's why it was falling on deaf ears in some regards, because most of LeBron James shots were uncontested in Game three. He wasn't he wasn't driving to the rim. He was taken pull up jumpers. He was crossing guys up at the In the three point line, Justin just shooting, So you're of course, you're not going to take free throws if you're not driving to the lane, But that's exactly what the different drugs that was a problem. The Denver Nuggets last night was that they weren't aggressive going into the hole. So if you're not gonna be aggressive, just getting phantom calls, So Mike Malone is right. He should. He should say this because he sees a discrepancy, but it's not egregious. By any good word. Good choice. I agree. It's not egregious, perfect word that encapsulates everything. It's not egregious. It's it's It's interesting. It's a little uneven, but it's certainly not egregious. What? Ah, what cannot happen. Listen, I said, the Nuggets are gonna get to wins. I'm going to give him one more. But if Yokich has seven rebounds in 34 minutes in 5016 points, they had no shot, then don't even show up and only four assists. It's not happening. Yeah, He's got to play better on that. Sit and listen. He's allowed you No one really off game. He just wasn't really fully involved. I get it. I'm not trying to bury the guy. But if you're a superstar, and I have positioned him that quite aggressively now for a while on the show, you can have two of those in a row. Yeah, You can't have two of those in rural, not whatyou backs against the wall facing elimination, messing with the clothes out. That's right. Let's get to this. So Lakers apparently destined for the finals. Unless you believe in that Denver Mojo, which is tough to dispel this point. They've done it multiple times coming back from multiple game deficit, so don't close the basketball coffin yet, however, Would you rather see? Assuming we pushed the Lakers through just for conversation? Would you rather see them play.

"And he didn't even hit any threes. I mean, everything was mid range. Everything was at the rim last night. What a game. You know, boy, can you imagine the Nuggets would have found a way to squeeze that out to two little gimpy ankle? Maybe on 80. Going into Game five. Young. It's I mean, it's not unfortunate, because I kind of I want to see LeBron do it. You know, I kind of want to see him bring the Lakers back has been a decades and the Lakers have been in the You want to see you want to see him? Get there or you want to see him win big difference for me. You won't see him. We'll definitely get there when I'm not so positive. You know, I'm not like LeBron James. Gotta win this for me to have a successful in my mind, then not now not to say I think it's good. Okay? I want to see him get there because Changing what the fortunes of the Lakers is what he came out here to do. And I remember when he first when they first made the decision to seasons ago. Three c three years ago, it was, you know, how long is it going to take? I didn't I didn't believe he was going to be able to do this. You know, I mean, we doubted whether or not he would have the ability to At 30 for 33 years old the time an ultimate 35 to, you know, get a get a championship for the Lakers. Yet here they are on the cusp of it. So you know, we also don't know we'd have a D. Yeah, but wait, it was changes it a bit. It was kind of happening, though, right that first year they were trying to get it. They won't get away with just a matter of time before they before they did. Now they get to give up a lot to get home. But it's probably worth after this turn into a good player. Ingram's turned into a really good player. But no. You do this 10 times out of 10. You gotta maximize that. Whatever remains of LeBron's prime something you and I have talked about a lot. It's reckless not to do it. That's why it drives. It drives me crazy when you see somebody, depending upon the sport, But like that quarterback who's 29 ish you're 30 and you like man. They still haven't gotten it right for. This guy wore that basketball player who's 27 or so and they still haven't surrounded it with the right pieces. Are they ever going to get it done? There's a finite window for all of us in light, but there's really a finite window for these uber athletes who, you know, do these amazing physical things. I want to play this for Mike Malone, because this is now a storyline going forward. 35 free throw attempts for the Lakers 23 for the Denver Nuggets. And if you recall, the Lakers were amped up about this, and they were juiced up about it going into last night, there was AH Shall we say, a recalibration or a market correction and he had to think Based on what Mike Malone says here you might get the same thing next game. Here's the Nuggets head coach, so we'll watch the film.

You gave up at least 23 in transition, And he gave up 37 free throws in addition to 11 threes, So what? Didn't you give up this the question If you're Mike Malone, you've got to avoid the early foul trouble is you had with your kitchen, Murray and Mill shop in the first half.

This is not a team you want to get down 31 against. I think they really need to show up. Sunday and established that they're going to be in this way.

We've proven it time and time again, we can learn from our losses and figure out what we need to do better. Going into next game and give ourselves a much better chance to win A Game Two is Sunday. Freddie Coleman on eighties impact in the opener Anthony Davis has played as if he's been a possessed man in the playoffs. Tonight. He really looked like that. He didn't just want the ball.

In a one game to non hall, the cold Yokich, one of the reasons why it's not Justin Jochen chat only 21 points today he had 11 in the opening quarter, which means he had 10. The rest of the way. Question is why He picked up three falls in the first quarter. He sat for the final 7 22 off the second, and he got his fourth foul early in the third. It's not exactly the best way to attack this Los Angeles Laker team short time ago, the Nuggets head coach was at the podium.

That's a pretty good little gig right there. By the way, I'm sure Mike Malone's half of the N B announcing today that the coaching staff will be able to bring in family for the conference finals. And of course, I think that was prompted by Malone's Talk What, like last week I got a lot of support, talking to the other coaches down here in the bubble ones that still remain, and I think a lot of them felt the same way may have happened may have been going to happen anyhow. I don't know what's going on behind the scenes just getting ready for the next game, which is a lot of fun Almost every night. Absolutely. Lakers Balder down four Resume play 7 37 to go in the second quarter. They are. Smith brings it across 44 40 rockets on top. Smith finds James about the last high post guarding buyer Looking for a chucker trying to front. James sprints down a lane missed the runner writing. The copy says they got hit hard and quickly down the Florida Green laid up in in and they caught the Lakers, arguing the note call better Stop talking to the ref. Get back on defense. 46 40 changed. You know he's gonna try to do something here. He's got a deep right wing. Almost the baseline steps back for three on the sideline, rinsed it.

"Harold Williams, like the team is fantastic. Put it all together as the pieces of supposed to fit, but they have played together all season long and you saw in that game one. Now Denver was probably exhausted after going seven with the Utah Jazz and Mike Malone. Ah Malone get like upset because the family his face, right? Hey is right. But you could easily tell like their focus wasn't on Like beating the Clippers. It was on were exhausted and everybody has their family except for me, and you think it's like man. They're going to get wiped out of the series to their credit. Game to they, they stormed back. And in fact, game three last night for it was a doubt tow last three minutes. Yeah, so you give them credit, But I agree with you bt the Clippers are the better team, they're going to shine gonna rise to the surface here. I think, ultimately, despite liking Denver, I think the Clippers, you know they're gonna win this one in five. Yeah, well, I'm going to get the Nuggets another win, and nobody's like the Nuggets. Mohr more than me. I mean, I think I'm carrying the cross for the Denver Nuggets in terms of national radio host. I mean, I've been trying to convince you for a couple of years that they're good. It's hard because we don't see them regularly. So unless you're like, like seeking them out, you're not going to find them now, Sam, But now because they're in the bubble, you do see him and it's easier to say Oh, I get it now, right because you want you see every game. By the way. I love the way that this is It's like every other day like there's no travel days, and that's for amounts. If there's none, like We're going to see that. What did they play? Get Clippers three days. Yeah. No, I mean Lakers rockets, They can get all the way back to Houston. Come on, write it. You know, every other day, you're going to see every other team doesn't matter what the day is. They plan on Labor Day. S so Yeah, I think I think I think this bubble thing has been fantastic for viewership for the MBA. Yeah, the one thing I'm surprised about, though. Especially last night. No. Beverly was chirping about Yokich, My guy who you know, flopper, Afflalo, her always the history on throwing his arms around. It does a little bit of that, but he's also not like Like I mean, he's thick, but I could see how he loses balance A little. He's not, you know, even though we lost a lot of weight He's not Ah, physical force, like you would imagine that that heightened that weight, so it doesn't have particularly strong base. I don't think he's incredibly skilled. He's probably the best pass her on the team. He is their best passer. But I found the timing of the complaints about the flailing in the flopping. It made no sense because in game three, the Nuggets had what 10 free throw attempts. The Clippers had almost 30. I know. So that was where it was coming from. That was the difference. I mean, I think it's one of those. You don't have anything that else to talk about. You complain about something and he's he's a student. He's like, coach. You know what I mean? So he's he's setting up for you. No future games, even though he doesn't necessarily need to. I don't I don't think that that's an issue to war about. For the for the Clippers. Now, maybe in the next series. Whoever that may be, whether it's the Rockets or the Lakers. You have to worry about that. But against Denver, I don't think they're young enough to I mean there. They're seasoned enough to know how to fully utilize those little tricks of the trade. You know what I mean? Well, sometimes you say things. This is usually the coach's job. But you say things that you want. Phil Jackson was renowned for this. Pat Riley was very good at it. You know, you use a press conference to air out some dirty laundry and the good ones, the respected ones, the winners that guys with a little championship back what he almost invariably, you know, certainly back in the day. There was almost always this this stark market correction. The next game where the fat free throw attempts would would flip significantly made the store player on the opposing team would get called for a quick whistle of two world they go to the bench. I feel like you don't hear that. You don't hear that as much. From coaches back in the day. You always used to hear it from Cho. Always. Fizdale. Remember? Take that data. Yeah, Yeah, Like I remember him doing that. But you don't It's not a tool back in the day. It was a tool for coaches. But, you know, listen in terms of this Siri's while I'm going to give the Nuggets another game, but I'm going to give them a puncher's chance to still maybe Maybe even steal the Siri's. Even though I picked the Clippers TTO win it in October. If Paul George score authority plus points, they don't win another game that that is the point. If George has 30 or even north of 25 again. They did. You can't beat him then because Kawai is going to be Kawai and you know the rest of the supporting cast. There's some fluctuate fluctuations with then for whether it's porter. No, Harris's back healthy, but there's just I think there's less Or fewer wild cards with the Clippers, and there are with the Nuggets, and that's important and especially if they start to get continuity with their roster, which is something we talked about was something to keep..
Michael Malone -- Shame on NBA for not allowing coaches' families in bubble
"Nuggets coach Mike Malone went after the NBA, on Friday, calling their policy of not allowing coaches to bring family into the bubble quo criminal in nature. So you're speaking to reporters ahead of game two and Malone answered a different question about the bubble by saying, he needed to get something off of his chest. So let's play the clip is day number sixty and and the reason I bring that up is because The players have their families here, which which they deserve, which is the right thing to do. Referees are allowed to being one guest, which is great for the referees. The coaches, the coaches are not allowed to bring anybody. I say shame on you NBA. This is crazy. I. Miss My family and I think I speak for me speak for my coaches and probably all the coaches down here sixty days and not having access and not being granted the privileged to have my family come here to me is criminal in nature and that shouldn't be Jin at all so I want to get that off my chest. So. Nuggets coach Mike Malone very upset there I know some other coaches sort of a you know had his back with these comments. Tasks way. What do you think is Malone overreacting is fair. What's your opinion? Well, let's just clear this scenario here just to make sure everybody's got it. Straight the players didn't have their families until this round either so they went. Fifty fifty five sixty days without seeing their families either and thinking back. I. It's Kinda surprising that they didn't demand that from the beginning or or at least a lot earlier right. So other twenty, two teams that came down there. Now, there's only eight fourteen of the teams didn't see their families whatsoever but now to to Michael Malone's part of it because it is surprising that. The players are allowed. So about fifteen of the thirty five people that come with each organization, the fifteen players get their families to come with them but the other twenty don't, and that's surprising a really surprising that I I didn't know the referee ruled that the refusal. To know that at all, I'm not sure win that took place if if that was from the beginning or what, but it would make sense for the coaches to have somebody a significant other possibly there are there are probably they're older as well most of these coaches. So a lot of them probably don't have little kids that would wanna be down the bubble, but significant other would make sense and and I'm just surprised looking back. We didn't go. We talked about the hundred and thirty five page manual over and over and over again in the months of April and May and June while this was happening. And all the rules and know we weren't really up in arms about it because we know it's a players league and they get first crack at everything about looking back. Yeah. It would be make sense not just for the coaches and the party to have somebody there but the players as well from the beginning and. I don't I'm not I'm not gonna get nickel and dime in think this hotel room is gonNa cost much I. Know It's costing the the NBA A lot, but they can afford to put up. Or even. An older these coaches are older may not even cost them another hotel room they could just be in the same hotel. Now I'm nickel and diming make sense that have their families there at least. One or two people they don't have to have a cousin Joe and cousin bill come on but at least their their their nuclear core family. That would that would make sense. So I'm with I Echo I echo coach Michael Malone. Salon couple months, but they probably should have had it for the whole time and not even now? Well, no, you can't say I don't think we can say they everybody should have had it from the whole from the jump from the start because we let's try and remember like months ago how insane like this ideal even was and whether it was even going to work and we were pretty convinced the more people you try to add into the bubble, the less likely it is going to be successful. So that meets sense like I'm sorry guys you are going to be away from your. Family's players included I. Think we're the frustration is coming from with the coaches and I think rightfully is it sounded like the NBA at the time when they're making the manual going through all the logistics and say, okay, well, the players like you know if they're here the playoffs, they can bring people down coaches. We don't WanNa lock that in right now because we're not convinced this whole experiments going to work this whole campus things going to work, but we will revisit it. That's what it sounded like they sort of said to them they didn't say no, you never see your family again. You want coach come down here and your coaching. It sounded like, yeah, that might be a possibility. We'll put that on the side burner and then we'll revisit that and now we're at the point to revisiting it and they have decided that they're not going to do it and it sort of probably you're a coach down there going look this is working. This is a safe you know why can't we now the coaches that remain here with now opening up of rooms and stuff like that I think. That's a fair like frustration if I was a coach.

It's like political political political. The world is ending politico. Here's a cute bunny rabbit. Just keep going. So, be careful what you're doing out there. takeaways from Mike Malone on that. Nicole Yokich. Should be there. There's no reasonably is not going to be there. Right I mean everybody's saying the same thing, but so far he's not there. And then the mission, my mind Malone has said this several times over. He believes that this team can win a championship. He believes they can beat any team in the NBA. And then ultimately simplifying the offense and defense and what you do. Hell good and bad NBA zone exactly not all teams have. The most like complicated offenses, it's the defense. Is that are the most complicated typically, so you know you'll have to. You have to work that. If MPG as not there then you don't have to worry about them in the rotation. screwing up your defense I guess for now big PJ Guy, but there's no doubt he's got to get that defense right? We'll see. You know if the time off has helped him because you gotta think. Defense studying their their tape and studying things he did wrong. He ought think he took advantage of that. I sure hope so if he shows up now again. Those are reports I'm seeing Gary Harris Impede, Jay and Tori Craig along with Nicole Yokich are not in the bubble just yet and as long as they're out of the bubble. Get Corona Virus Russell Westbrook tested positive for it so now. He's got to sit out two weeks before he can go to the bubble. I think it's funny. Colefax not funny. I used to always say I. Bet you that coaches and general managers wish that in that small little offseason period like a month before the season because a month before the season. Everybody's freaking out. You know just like a kid in summer vacation you're last month or like. Oh, my Gosh! I got to squeeze everything in Scouts Party. Let's get crazy. That's what that's. What athlon of athletes will do if they're single? You know they don't have. Have Families, so they go out, and there's more of a chance that they perhaps might get into some trouble, so I always used say I bet coaches and GM which they could put a little dome, a little bubble over everybody and say stay within this. Don't get to you is don't go to parties. Don't do something stupid. Don't get in fights. Don't break your leg on a motorcycle. Don't get a jet ski accident. Stay in the bubble.

it is now looking to call it also the Rush Limbaugh show the numbers eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two so yes this fancy I don't even know if I have a cough button in my other I probably do I just haven't found it I'm I'm a late bloomer when it comes to this technology stuff something that we wanted to talk about at the beginning of the show and I wanted to get a segment where we can cover different aspects of it is the celebration the rewarding of transgenderism it's big it's become a it's a it's a marketing thing now it's marketing few days ago you may have saw that Chanel beauty Chanel fashion beauty what have you Dave hired for the first time ever a transgender model is making fashion history and I saw a big story it was in a European newspaper I forget the name of the paper it was probably something like European newspaper and they were celebrating what a milestone this is now again understand we have moved so far to the left as far as political correctness and I will go as far as to say absurdity that even if you question it you get in trouble but think about it how is that a milestone we we have a slender guy who's dressed like a woman this is such a milestone that he's the Chanel why why but but you you can't even question it see I think there's a lot of milestones out there I think people are doing tremendous things I think they're they're doing wonderful things for each other fork the culture for the community I mean if you look hard enough every day you find wonderful stories of young people that are learning early on how to give of themselves whether it's through their church or through their organizations whatever it may be but but who do we end up celebrating we had we end up so we we put people that we put men that wear dresses on the covers of magazines welcome to twenty nineteen and and we're all supposed to be quiet about this of millions of people that were raised with the absurd idea that women have female parts guys have guy parts those are the genders there's man and woman millions of people raise with that we've been put on notice don't you dare question are eighteen genders well why not so anyway check it out if you have time and then she wrote she wrote this very touchy why say she now see I fell into the trap it's hate she he writing is she this person but this is the absurdity of it see the absurdity of it is how you and I and the rest of the world have been conditioned to talk about certain things because the people that want to normalize certain things like these people that say we don't need a wall the absurdity of well why do we even have borders what what's wrong with you we need why do we have borders we're a sovereign nation that's why you have borders why don't you try the shenanigans which China anyway getting back to transgenderism this is not just a bit it's not just up in issue where and and someone brought this up to because we're talking about a couple weeks ago went when the third or fourth track athlete issue came up there's lawsuits in Connecticut they this is happening all over the country you get a the young man who runs as a man is it is a voice on the voice team in track maybe sophomore freshman sophomore junior and then in his senior year he identifies as a woman and all of a sudden you see Dave show up at the track meet in a skirt and that and and the the checkout fit and now he he identifies as a woman is running on the girls team any beats all the girls everybody goes all day that is so incredible how was that incredible you just treat it your treat our am I the only person that sees it as a cheap cheating I got an idea what if we get guys dressed some like girls haven't compete against girls to get the metals and the scholarships will yet and then the feminist because they hate trump's so much will be too blind to see it what an insult to feminism look at the women that have worked their tails off in every aspect of our culture from NASA to the United States marines to law enforcement to academics to the corporate world and all of a sudden we are supposed to accept well here's a guy that thinks he's a girl so they'll be dressed like you now ladies what I don't buy it I I do believe with and I say this respectfully in this is the see this is the issue because think about how the far left shuts down a conversation like we're having now they would shut it down by saying all another conservative this another because it always a homophobe piece of this info he's a trans info no I I just I'm looking for some explanation some clarity but every time you have a discussion about any of it you are shut down right you can't discuss it but what you should be asking every single female on that debate stage in two weeks or whatever it that the Democrats are putting up to run for president as candidates they ought to be yes do you think it does a disservice to hard working women and girls that are working toward a goal to succeed if all of a sudden a guy can say I think I'm one of you now and then be treated like one of you I think it's an outrage and I know that's very politically incorrect but again this is not an issue of mocking or making fun of people this is an issue of respect you know what it wasn't that long ago that gender dysphoria was a form of mental illness that should be treated so I started doing research on it because I knew what I talked about it there there would be a protester candlelight vigil zero users and I found out that seventy eight percent of college students with gender issues unfortunately meet the criteria for mental health problems and I thought okay I let me find out what's behind this okay it's the Boston University school of public health the Harvard Medical School and Michigan school of public health a very extensive study and it covered by the way over twelve hundred caller student a college student with gender identity issues that they self identified to across over seventy U. S. universities and out of that sample seventy eight percent of the gender issued students in the survey met the criteria for at least one of the following outcomes I shouldn't anxiety eating disorder self injury and suicidal and among teens transgenders is the high suicide rate now to me that's it that is an issue it's it's a problem and I think what happens is because of the way we market this the real problem gets overlooked if you have a young man or woman who is confused about issues like that they need to be respected because that's what we attempt to do in this country you respect people but you also should treat it like it issue it is a issue with the conflict it's a problem one of the reasons I am not a fan of having a trans gender in a combat situation and I say this not for comic relief I say it seriously if you cannot decide if you're a man or a woman how are you gonna make split second decisions involving your life and the life of your fellow soldiers I mean you got up this morning in a in a body of this but you believe your vat I don't know if you should be in a high stress situation and then you could go further and if if you look into of and I don't wanna get off into the weeds with it but if you look into sexual harasser actually sold sexual abuse and a variety of other issues but so I'm researching that and I come up and see here that a girl's volleyball coach was forced to take a biological male on the girls team this is not a one off this happen to be in Hawaii by the way you want to look it up this is not a one off this is happening from Connecticut to Kentucky people get up one day and they say you know why he I I really identify is different gender and then society doesn't say you think you might have some issues do you want to discuss it no they put you on a magazine say is in the school look at this guy you can't television guy or girl edit celebrated meanwhile there's a whole bunch of people out there that have other issues as well so I think skipping over certain things in glamorizing this and I think one of the biggest to services especially with Caitlyn Jenner when I saw Caitlyn Jenner I can bear I don't even Bruce I was gonna say I almost forgot his first real name to me growing up with Bruce Jenner as a guy that ran track and cross country and play tennis in Florida he was like he was a big deal his skills his hair style everything what kind of shoes is he running in for these competitions etcetera in the seventies when I was a high school athlete and I might say I was a very very mediocre if not below average high school athletes but that didn't stop me from competing and getting in the way of the people that really were good but I to this day look it Caitlyn Jenner all my god it's Bruce Jenner in drag being celebrated by women's magazine and you and I are supposed to look at that and go well that's normal it's not it's not anything and it's not I'm I'm not saying it's abnormal to be mean it's just there's there's issues there and nobody wants to deal with them and last but not least they were gonna get some more phone calls on the Rush Limbaugh show night circuit court of appeals Idaho just ruled that taxpayers in Idaho must give a transgender inmate reassignment surgery so there it is and a quick back story he's a thirty one year old man he raped.

"And he really good one unlock that entire defense and Justice Winslow, another guy her recently, but they pretty much had them as a point guard, and you know, point guard lineups that they're Miami Patrick Beverley fits this a little bit too. Because it's not just. Statistical wise or whatever, but he also like keep brings a certain level of energy that a team like the clippers where everybody is sort of at the same level or some blues gnarly like star, you kind of need somebody to bring it all together in an elevated team is a whole just from an energy standpoint anything he does that. So I think that that's another one let's move onto our last one coach of the year is a pretty heated race. I think the obvious choice is booting Holzer simply because of the difference between our guy Joe property to now with where the bucks went from the eighth seed and first round chum to essentially the best team in the NBA. I think that's a pretty obvious one where you can just trace it back to the system. And I think he's probably the guy who's gonna ended up win here. Other guys I jotted down Doc Rivers Nimick Millan, Mike Malone, and Dave Yeager. That'd be my ballot. And I would list them in that order, right Dogan? Nate are on the same year. Yeah. And probably just because simply between because the team's been more successful, which I mean, that's great. You ended up with hones-. I think might ballooned up definitely can any of the year would would win that easily. You know, it's like taking a team that missed the playoffs last year. And this is like a huge jump for them to the second seat. You know? Yeah, that's a big leap. The case for doc. Obviously is also not only had did the clippers pretty much exceed expectations. But they've been changing the team on the fly. So that's all for office too. You know? Him having to step down almost like, I don't know how much we should give him credit for it. Because it's basically like he's doing less work, right focusing. It's like if you just told me, we should give them credit because usually the guy just gets outright fired. Tom Riley dockers. It'd be like no remember, I'm a I'm a good coach let me take a step back. And he's at the point now where like he's having to fend off offers or alleged offers interest Lakers from the other side of of the Stapleton, imagine how hard he hated. If you switched over. Well, the thing is like the clippers fan there aren't enough to like really really track. That would bring natured from around the league fans would really resent. That wouldn't be the first with the Lakers right now fans are going to resent. If it's like poaching seem time. I've you can't poach. Sure. But at the same time can't Poche. I mean after like this Anthony Davis thing like come on. Poach? Not about follow is pro poaching. Yeah. But I think ultimately buddies is that one for sure all right.

Talked to me was up. Hey, I wanna start off by saying how our work battalion when tally don't work on that being said who would have over thought the Milwaukee Bucks before the six and fourteen right now, do you think they can keep it up? First of all, I think Buddha hoses is one of the top three candidates for coach of the year along with Nate McMillan in Indiana and Mike Malone in Denver. That's number one number two degree freaks to real deal. Let's see what happens in the postseason against Toronto, Boston Philadelphia. I think they got a chance to keep it up though. I think the Milwaukee end up in the conference finals, but we shall see Travis you lava Stephen a real quick, you only got thirty seconds much. I just got a quick question is do you any change with Anthony Davis inquiry, but want to Los Angeles? And if so. Who does that hurt Moore's reputation kyri or LeBron's? I don't know and don't care about the reputation aspect if Kyrie Irving, I don't I can't imagine he'd wanna go to LA because that's the situation that he left in Cleveland, unless there's a change, and you know, him and LeBron is restored whatever section. They once had for one another. They certainly on talking terms they get along. But I don't know if Cari wants to go back and play with him. But certainly you could use the free agent money to acquire Kyrie Irving, and you use the trades to acquire Anthony Davis, assuming the pelicans wanna do business with you. And I'm not sure about that. By the way. Anthony Davis is only gonna play about twenty minutes tonight and probably won't play in the fourth quarter. But we'll see the Lakers better win talked gel in two thousand two hours until them pizza.

"Hundred. Thirty five. Final and total Yokich tonight. Eighteen points, eleven assists in April downs in twenty five minutes. Could absolutely have hit a triple doubles tonight. But he did get a double double negative, double double. Don't forget tomorrow. You go to Wendy's a free fresh never frozen burger with any purchase valid at any participating in greater Denver front range area. Head downstairs, here's head coach, Mike Malone. Yeah. I think there was a the response. We're all hoping for after a tough loss against Golden State first quarter, obviously cut off to a decent start. But Dr challenge our guys answered you know, they had thirty points in that first quarter and on their way to one twenty and second quarter seventeen points allowed and that third quarter might have been one of their better quarters of the season. So tomorrow got going joke was great Paul, Tori. Maliki early Baliccot nine everybody contributive Vic, so great response. But we have one more game to finish out. These first eleven games in one thousand nine days against Cleveland, and we can get that one to finish eight and three kind of come up for air and get rid of a Utah. They'll be a great great thing for us. Given all the games on nice was rest your starters there in the fourth quarter. Yeah. It was that's always great. And just as important scraped for the other guys who get out there and play. Trey Lyles coming back from the risk. Try to find his rhythm want show was really active energetic, all over the place. Monty mason. I love watching Mason Plumlee, play his his activity. So then even late getting Brandon and Tyler in the game. You know, any minutes. You can get them is minutes well-deserved because those guys work their butts off for us after the first quarter. You got in the huddle. And you told your team let's bring our defense bring our defense. You didn't the second. What what is your defense? How would you define a I would say when we're at our best defensively were into people teams feel us. We're dictating to them as opposed to being reacting to everything they do were up were aggressive and were flying around giving multiple effort, and I think you know, from the first quarter to that second quarter. There's a marked difference. And Laura Marquez is a heck of a player. He killed us in the first half second half, you only at seven points xactly main is one of the most talented players tonight. But I thought the combination of Tori, and Gary Harris guarding him two points going into the fourth quarter time. So we did a hell of a job on him. And just tried wanting to go do it, and I was pissed off because we talked about everybody wants to be an approved defensive team. And first quarter. We didn't play like we wanted to be that team fourth quarter. We didn't do it either. So we you know, we played great defense. Second and third. So that's the challenge for close to forty eight minutes is possible when Jamal was feeling in the third quarter. I a green light you just sit back and say do what you want. Yeah. But you know, what I like to he was getting shots out of the offense. It wasn't just him coming down and jacking, you know, it was actually him. We call the play. He makes a great read. He bumps back. It's a three. So when he has a going like that, obviously he can get hot in a hurry. And he had twenty two points. I believe in that third quarter. So great job of him getting into that rhythm finding that shot and taking good shots. Not just, you know, a wild shot so happy for Jamali get that ball going in the basket. You mentioned Gary he'd been out for for ten days perimeter defense is a hard thing to play in this league. I mean, you need everybody you can to to carry that task. What did you think of him tonight? And how important just as to what you guys tried to do on that end of the floor. Oh, he's so important. I mean having him back with. Great. I thought he was terrific. Obviously he had a minute restriction wanted to keep them around eighteen minutes, which is great that we were able to do that. But offensively he had a great rhythm. Great patients shot. The ball will got to the Cup and made a couple of great passes in that first half in pick and rolls and then defensively as I mentioned earlier, I thought Tory and Gary their defense on Zach LeVine was phenomenal. I mean, if you can shut a guy like Zach LeVine down for three quarters only having two points. That's the job. Well done season. I in three pointers made tonight any particular reason for that. I love the fact that we have thirty four assists only seven turnovers. So when you don't turn the ball over you're going to give yourself a chance to get shots off. But to go twenty of forty from the threes, a fantastic number. I think it's extra willingness to play together play for each other. Find the open man, and that's contagious. You know, and. Even Jamal had a going Paul had a going other guys had a gong as well. And the ball finds the open man did once again tonight you began your comeback in the first quarter year down by seven when Bill set goes outputs that put back dunk and Paul look different. He looked more athletic tonight. Coming around. Yeah. Hope so he did look you had that bounce you know, and even driving the ball. He he had an extra gear tonight, which is good to see. And then when Paul is active defensively thought, he did a good job tonight on that end rebounding scoring the ball, but a lively Paul Millsap and active Paul Millsap is a really effective player. And tonight was another example of the second season.

"Countdown to tip off on the sports leader. Clearly going to be in the playoffs. I think we are too. So it's an excellent chance we might play each other. I like watching the team play their whole management group deserves a lot of credit. They made some really good moves here put together. Good roster and Mike is tied it altogether. And got a lot of good young talent. They play well play well together. Steve Kerr Leany back countdown to tip off workers and nuggets win tonight. They'd take over the top spot in the Western Conference was funny because we have such an impossibly high standard. I'm not saying it's wrong because the words have set this bar, but for all the perception of the worst struggling and not playing up to standards to this point. Look there's been games where you would think they'd be motivated, and they weren't and they didn't play. Well, and they're not blown teams out of the other day. I looked at it and talked about this on the air two years ago, the margin of victory for the words was twelve points per game. Now, it's five Steph curry was sitting on all sorts of fourth quarters. It's not like that anymore. I don't know if the league is caught up to him. I, you know, I don't know what the the analyst of the whole thing is. But the reality of it is is that. Yeah. It's it's absolutely closer their margin for error is less. Mike Malone said earlier today. The former words assistant, of course, head coach of the nuggets at Steve Kerr referred to there said, yeah, we've meet them probably more of the last few years than anybody. I don't know why. Well, one of the reasons why in Tom is referenced this is it's tough to play in Denver, which is why if Denver keeps us up it would be fairly important. I'm not again, I'm not saying that the words would not win a game seven Denver, but it is possibly the toughest place to play in the league. And I'm not saying that their fans are overly loud. It's not maybe overly intimidating place. But you'll get tired, and that's just kind of the way it goes. The other side of it. And how they're different this year is Yokich is taken a Nikolai Yokich is make taken another step forward about twenty points per game, ten boards, seven and a half. Assists. I'm not saying he's the best center in the league. But in terms of overall, he probably is he's a decent three point shooter thirty two and a half. He's shooting fifty one percent of the floor. But he just does so many things. Well, he's this highly skilled and you put him at the top of the list for them. Jamal Murray is a nice point guard. He's got off for forty plus games this year. So he's explosive and he's a young guy, and he's going to get better and better. And then they just have a bunch of interchangeable parts, they're getting healthy. Now. We'll Barton longtime between we'll Barton Gary Harris type of player. Monty Morris is a good backup point guard. Trae lousy got from the jazz. He's a nice piece off the bench. They've got a bunch of guys that can play. And then Paul Millsap is kind of your veterans thirty three years old. He may not be what he wants was. But again, a guy who has played in playoff games of the jazz, and these are kind of valuable guide to have on your roster. So they're extremely deep which plays to playing in half your games in Denver. They don't have to overly tax guys Murray plays the most minutes on this team at thirty four. But they've been able to keep Yokich around thirty one minutes per game Harris around thirty one points per game. And then everybody else kind of plays in the twenties. In the reason, they do that is again Denver's a tough place to play. They keep the guys minutes down keep the guys fresh. They're incredibly deep. They're the deepest team in the NBA. And again, it leads me to believe that at some point. They're going to trade some of that debt for some good players and for a superstar player and again Michael porter jR, fourteenth overall pick top player in the class two years ago at high school has not played due to a knee injury. Isaiah Thomas has not played. I honestly, I don't know where they play as Ahah Thomas because he such a liability defensively. He's he can be a great. Score. When you're you know, he obviously he was overvalued with the Celtics, but in a perfect role where he's a six, man. He's not bad. It's just the league has become so obsessed about getting the right match up and doing switch in on switches and screens and everything like that. He has such a liability defensively that I'm not sure where he'd play with them point is good team. I was skeptical early to to to kind of see where they would shake out in the Western Conference. But I think they're going to be there are they going to be a head of the rockets. I don't know. The head of the thunder. I dunno. But they've had a nice start to the season worth midway point there. Eighteen and three at home. They're normally not that good. But they're very good usually at home. And again, they're decent away. There are eleven and ten away. The wars are best away from. Away from home in the Western Conference at twelve and eight. So the nuggets are decent away from home. They are they dominate at home and with their depth. They're just going to be a really tough team to play as they often. Are is Mike Malone said he doesn't know why the nuggets have beaten the wars and the way that they have. It's very simple. It's a tough place to play. They're they're very very deep end. That's kind of been the thing that they're not going to be sneaking up on anybody anymore and should be some good matchups tonight Murray versus curry will get into a little bit later. Clay, again, they're starting Beasley and Craig at the shooting guard and small business. They're interchangeable, and they have depth. Draymond Millsap is a good one Millsap throughout his career pretty ferocious rebounder. And again, the center position greens can have have to help out with Yokich because he is a difficult guard. So those are some of the matchups tonight in Denver for the warriors. All right. We'll still do we have a fits keys, by the way at some point. If it's a skis. All right. So we've got fences keys, we got the x factor coming up as. Well, did I miss anything? Because we've got a new sponsor, right? Do the the M drive player to watch. So is that where we're.
Denver Dominates Los Angeles, as Lakers Lose by 32
"Was the seven hundred seventy th time in the Brian James career his team attempted at least twenty three's in a game. This was the worst percentage that that team had in any of them. Meanwhile, for the nuggets head coach Mike Malone was asked if he thought his team converted any Laker fans who were in the crowd with the nuggets performance tonight. We don't want any converse with us. You're against us. We understand when we play these great. Lebron is arguably the best player ever. And when he comes to town and the Lakers their fans carry, but as long as their fans, go home disappointed in this whole I care about. So the war your fans can commit here. The Celtic fans can come in here. Laker fans come in here. But take that L on the way out. Okay. Take that take it take you. Not too long about that. But let's go back to the brand for just a minute here because we were talking before the show about the one thing the Lakers really struggle with this year and Denver exploited. It will LeBron was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers we talked about how much of a load he needed to carry. If you look at his usage with the Los Angeles Lakers in MIR's, exactly what it was in Cleveland

Eighty oughta throwback score to three thousand four the last second shot. I wanted to talk about this. This is his only shot of the game. He came in averaging seventeen ten eight on eleven shots quote. He's not shooting the ball. We have to figure out. Why quote, that's coach Mike Malone. Woody. What is this just a weird anomaly or does he need to get more rest of like mom Murray? His says. That's the only person. Here watched every minute of the game, including all of you. And every viewer. I can tell you exactly what happened. He's a triple double way to happen. It wasn't anomaly because he was fine. Twenty five thousand dollars yesterday by the NBA office for remark he made about another player that was off color. So he didn't even know what he said to be honest. And also he's a pass. I kind of guy and Marcus all did a great job as a clapsed inside out. Yeah. But I mean, he learned his lesson. Let that acts like that fine wasn't for actual reason here. So all that being said it was a rough day at the office. You mentioned this before Tony the nuggets are nine into people. What are we complaining about? This team is still a very good Becker toll.
