Hello from wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is we manica. This month we're highlighting ragers, women who use their anger often righteous, though not always, to accomplish extraordinary things. Today we're talking about the bravery of a mother who, in the face of unimaginable sorrow, helped change the course of the civil rights movement. Let's talk about mamie till mobley. Mamie was born in 1921 in a small town in rural Mississippi. When she was still very young, her family moved to Argo and linois. Right outside of Chicago. They were among the millions of black Americans to move from the Jim Crow south to northern cities during the Great Migration. These families were escaping racial violence and discrimination and hoping to find better jobs and education opportunities. As she grew up, mamie watched more and more of her family members move up north. She later wrote, it really seemed like almost everybody from Mississippi was coming through our House. The Ellis island of Chicago. Actually, it was more like a terminal on The Underground Railroad. Mamie's parents were adamant that she take her education seriously. As mamie remembered, in my day, the girls had one ambition to get married. Very few kids finished high school, but mamie did. She was the fourth black student to ever graduate from her high school, and the first to make the a on a roll. When mamie was 18 years old, she married Louis till, who worked at the same factory as her father. About a year later, their son Emmett Till was born on July 25th, 1941. Not long after Emmett's birth, mamie and Louis separated. Mamie raised Emmett or Bobo as she called him with the help of her mother. When Emmett was 14 years old, he asked Mimi to let him tag along with his cousins on a summer trip to Mississippi. He would stay with his great uncle and would earn some money picking cotton. At first, mamie said no. She'd grown up hearing stories from her parents about the racial violence happening in Mississippi. While there was still racial discrimination in Chicago, during the 1950s, the Jim Crow south was another world entirely. Emmett had a reputation as a jokester. Mamie wrote for Emmett, life was laughter and laughter was life giving. There was so much joy in his carefree world that he just wanted to share with everyone around him. That aspect of Emmett's personality scared me. She worried he would be too friendly and confident in the face of white southerners open hostility. But Emmett begged his mother to let him go, and she finally agreed. But not without warning him of the danger of interacting with white people in Mississippi. She instructed him to never look a white woman in the eye and to only speak if spoken to. She told Emmett, if you have to humble yourself, then just do it. Get on your knees if you have to. On August 20th, 1955, mamie kissed emic goodbye before watching aboard a train headed to Mississippi. 8 days later, mamie got a call from Mississippi. Emmett had been forcefully taken in the night by two white men from his great uncle's house. No one knew where he was. Mamie sprung into action. She started calling Chicago newspapers to spread the news that her son had gone missing. The next day, she met with the Chicago branch of the NAACP for help raising the alarm. She kept making calls to anyone she could think of who might help her find Emmett, even adding a second phone line to her house so she wouldn't miss any new information. On August 31st, Mimi received the news that her son's body had

"Donovan Mitchell scored 31 points to lead the Cavaliers over the nets one 15 to one O 9. Mitchell hit 5 three porters and a fourth quarter highlight reel slam dunk in the cas 46 win, but says it could have been better. You know, we don't win by 6 or 8, whatever it is. It's a one point game. I think it's the entire offensive rebounds. They missed a few of the shots. It was much three tonight. They may make something. You know, and that's ultimately what's the separator. So they don't continue to be consistent with what we do. Care is the word added 18 points.

The latest in sports
"AB sports I'm Josh rowntree, major news Wednesday in college basketball is for the first time in nearly 5 decades. Syracuse will have a new head coach, more from correspondent Dave ferry. Basketball coach Jim beheim said at a news conference Wednesday that it was up to Syracuse to decide whether he returns for a 48th season. The school quickly responded by announcing that assistant Adrian Autry is replacing beheim, who was second on the all time wins list for division one coaches. I've been lucky. To be able to do it. Coach this long. His resume includes 34 NCAA tournament appearances, ten big east regular season titles and 5 conference tournament championships, along with the NCAA title in 2003, but the orange haven't had a 21 season in four years. I'm Dave ferry. On the NBA hardwood, CJ McCollum dropped in 32 points as the pelicans topped Dallas one 13 one O 6. It was good, man, but I'm just trying to win, man. I think that's, out of the score, a lot of points in my career and I hit big shots. I'm just trying to do what I can to help the team win. So it was nice to make some shots and make some plays, but it's even better when it comes in a win. The Cavaliers got by the heat one O four 100 as Evan mobley says defense led the way for Cleveland. I feel like we played pretty good defense. We were in our spots. Sometimes shooters got out. And we followed the shooters. We could do a little bit better with that. And then also them driving middle, but overall I feel like we did a good job. And Boston smashed Portland one 1593, Jason Tatum had 30. Al Horford added 17. I was just really early on taking with the defense was giving me the way they were playing me and guy found me early and I was able to get into a rhythm really early. And on the ice, the wild top the jets four two behind 46 saves for Mark Andre flurry. I thought you guys defended Walt, you know, everybody covered the metal to slat a lot of it. It's not too many grated air and the blocks and shots where it clear blocks away and obviously something nice goes up front to get the leader. I'm Josh Brown tree AP sports.
"mobley" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"Is due. Yeah. Which puts him in a tough spot. Like Jaden, in particular, the his ability to deny off ball. Like if you're trying to get your star of the ball and Jaden McDaniels is just like blanketing them. I mean, it makes it really tough. It really destabilizes your whole your whole situation. Your entire offense to then, that's when like, okay, Rudy Gobert looks like Rudy Gobert again, right? The defense around him. You're shortening the shot clock. You're controlling the situation. You're really setting your team up to succeed. To a point where like, yeah, that's easy to believe in. Like that crux of a team. But I mean, defense is a young man's game for the most part. Like you want to be old enough to have the reps in the league. And so you're not committing really dumb fouls. That's one area where McDaniels has gotten a lot better, just like easing up on some of the pressure sometimes. But you need to be young enough to have those likes to have those springs like PJ Tucker is the anomaly for a reason, right? Like he's still getting after it, but otherwise 35 year olds, that's not really what they're doing anymore. You see it a little bit now with Marcus smart this season. Who I think physically just seems banged up to me and doesn't seem like he has the same athleticism that had a couple of years ago. And it's just little small signs. Guys going by him and him where it used to be a charge now it's a block and thing. Late 20s and it's just a different stage of where you want to be. And whereas somebody like white, white's like challenging shots and I don't think so much younger than smart, but it's kind of sad we're at a point with the NBA where the good defenders kind of jump off the TV though. They're like, oh, that guy's playing defense. Okay. Well, the deck is stacked against them, you know? Unless you are a Matisse thy ball level defender, has his own problems on the other side of the ball. I don't know that you're going to make a big night tonight presence or big night tonight impact. I still kept my title stock. The Edwards piece with Minnesota's the most fun part of it because every year after the all star break, we see a young guy elevate. I thought it might be Edwards, starting to look like it might be Evan mobley, our guy, speaking of big, big, big stock holdings that I have. I mean, it's expensive, but I bought a ton of it. Awesome against the Celtics last night. And in general, there's been a lot of signs on both ends. If somebody kind of putting it together here. Yeah, what are you seeing? What is the highest gear on the mobley propaganda machine? Is there an overdrive we can shift into? What is maximum capacity? Probably maximum capacity is when somebody in your life goes, yo, Matt I have to settle down on the mobile thing. Sound you actually sound like he's your son. That's probably it's probably the level of LeBron tweeting last night that bronnie was better than some of the guys in the league. That's probably the last level of the mobile machine where it's like, dude, take a breath. That's just quality dad work right there. I have no problem with it. Is it quality dad work though? I don't know. You have to be an advocate for your family, you know? True. I guess, I guess that's what we look at it. What do you see with mobley? I think some of it is, it feels like he's just learning in so many different areas of attack at once. Like defensively, I was already pretty sold. Offensively I was kind of in wait and see mode. Like cautiously optimistic, you can see the skills, you want to see him as, you know, be able to hit turnarounds in the post, like have that kind of life lengthy offensive game inside that you can finish. But now it's learning how to attack off the dribble when guys play off them on the perimeter. And he's just like going in, nailing these running hook shots. It's learning what to do when teams do get cute and try to guard you with smalls or smaller players. And in that Celtics game, I mean, he just battering rammed through grant Williams chest. And that's something to Yanis has problems with, all kinds of bigs have problems. It was shocking. Legitimately shocking, especially look at the builds of these two people and the mobley is creating that kind of force where he's able to get clean looks against grant is really on top of being 8 inches taller. Absolutely. But just the fact that he's able to, I think, more consistently stay involved in place. I think in the initial blushes of action from him, it was like, if he rolled to the rim and it didn't quite work out, he didn't really know where to go. And now he hangs around, he makes himself available. Like he is always a dunker spot pass away from a massive dunk now. And that's why you see some of these like takeover stretches, right? It's like, you can not take him out of the action in the way that you used to be able to before. And I know if you look like overall top down season over season, you may not see a lot of growth in the box score stats. It feels tangibly different in terms of the way he is impacting these games. Like the takeover stretches of 5 or 6 minutes in the middle of a second or third quarter that completely change a game. Those are happening a lot more often now.
Garland scores 21 points, Cavaliers rout Pistons 114-90
"The Cavaliers received balance scoring at a one 1490 blowout over the pistons. Evan mobley had 16 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists and four blocks. Defensively, we were in our spas and stops against deals and then offensively the flow was better. And we were taking the right shots, making better plays and stuff like that. Darius Garland had 21 points and 7 assists in just 24 minutes, Donovan Mitchell scored 20 points, but spraying a finger on his left hand in the third quarter. The Cavs now lead the Knicks by a game and a half for fourth place in the east and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. I'm Dave fairy.
The Story of 'There Goes My Life' With Neil Thrasher
"The story of behind there goes my life because how many this one, I mean again, whether it actually happened to you're not, there's so many people relate to this song. That's a fact. Like no other song that I've been a part of, we've gotten more response, more feedback, more letters, and emails about how this affected their life. And this song actually was my co writer Wendell mobley, who Lee Miller is good friends with. We all write together, but I've had most of my success with Wendell. And this was his idea. And he actually lived a little bit of this song way back when he was young. And we held on to this idea. It was his idea. He brought to the table. We had it all written down, but we hadn't started working on it. I bet a year went by and we had that idea laying around. And the only line that we had was. We had a line, one of the lines in the song, I can't even remember which one it was. We had laid down, but I know we had the title written down in our notebooks back when we were still actually writing words down and not typing them down. We had there goes my life, you know, the teddy bear line and all that stuff was written out, but we hadn't actually put the song together. And then one day we just did Nick happened so fast. By the time we got that song written to the time we recorded it like the next day in a week's time, Kenny had heard it and was going to record it. And it seemed like a week or two later, it was on the radio, but I know it wasn't that quick, but it felt like that's how fast that song happened. And it went up the charts and hung up there for about 7 weeks at number one. It was a big old song. I wound up, I wound up singing it at one of my daughter's graduations. They asked me to come do it when the school called my about threw up when they asked me to do that because there's no way I'm gonna be able to get through this song looking at those caps and gowns. I mean, I can't do this. But I did, and I made it through it. We did good. We got nominated for ACM song of the year. Went to Vegas, and we didn't win. It didn't matter.
Mitchell scores 35 points, Cavaliers rout Raptors 118-93
"The Cavaliers easily ended their three game losing streak with a one 1893 thumping of the raptors. Donovan Mitchell finished one three pointer shy of his career high, hitting 8 while scoring 35 points. Feels good to win this game feels good to play the way we play, but we got to do the same thing on Wednesday and continue to push. Jared Allen delivered 23 points at 11 rebounds. Darius Garland finished with 18 points and 11 assists and Evan mobley added 18.29 boards to help Cleveland improve to 26 and 7 at home. Pascal siakam had 25 points and 8 rebounds for the raptors who ended a season high four game winning streak. I'm Dave ferry.
Jokic has triple-double, Nuggets beat Cavaliers 115-109
"Nikola Jokić had another triple double and Michael Porter junior scored a team high 25 points in the nuggets, one 15 one O 9 victory at Cleveland. Jokic delivered 24 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists for another MVP type performance. He has 22 triple doubles this season, including 13 in his last 16 games. He impressed head coach Michael Malone. When the MVP goes out and puts up a triple double, that means he's impacting the game at a high level across the board. Evan mobley had a game high 31 points for Cleveland, but with scoreless in the fourth quarter. I'm Dave fairy.
Allen, Mobley power Cavaliers to 113-85 win over Pistons
"The Cavaliers made it four straight wins despite resting Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland, rolling to a one 1385 route of the pistons. Jared Allen and Evan mobley combined for 21 points while Cleveland went ahead by 18 after one quarter. I did the Evan did it. We felt like we were attacking the room. I know they still have some pretty decent rim protectors, but we didn't let that stop us tonight. Alan finished with 20 points and mobley had 19 for the calves who opened the fourth quarter by outscoring Detroit 26 four. The Cavaliers also out rebounded the pistons, 48 32, with Alan grabbing 14.

"mobley" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"So I would very strongly, if they're going to go down the road of a rebuild, I would move him if I was them. But if they are just retooling and trying to do like a quick turnaround, obviously keep them and build around them and make it work. We'll take them in Boston. If you use little shooting, I'm sure you want to be able to take some bonus faults we got. You'll take them all. Okay. What other rookies do you want to talk about? Like my dear sweet boy herb Jones has been incredible. I love them. Like just best offensive the best offensive rookie outside of Evan mobley. I would say. I mean, I don't know if they played at 33rd game. He started 23 of 32 games. So it wasn't. It wasn't one of these COVID call up situations, which COVID stinks. Let's start with that. If there's a silver lining, it's a lot of these rookies and free agents we've got an opportunity and more opportunity, but he was starting anyway. He had 26 and 7 against Cleveland. He scored more than 20 points once during the 12 years he was at Alabama. He shooting 37% from three when you and I were like, Matt, you could only shoot. He's just more of a super sized to a player version that we saw in Tuscaloosa and now it's here. It's the NBA and he's 23 years old and maybe this is another guy that you us we have to take longer looks on prospects with translatability despite the age because I don't care that he's 23. We're talking about he's a starting guy in the NBA and they race about 23 and rape about him in the franchise. And then you look at his pick. He's picked 35th. Here's picks 35 to 38. Herb Jones, miles McBride, JT Thor, IO the sumo. Those are NBA starters. So like picks late in the draft also still matter. Like you gotta evaluate they're not throwaway picks and he was a good guy identified and he fits everything that they're trying to do there. Like him a lot. Yep, I like him a lot too. Both you and I had him as a first rounder, I think in the process. Go crazy. Yeah, late first, yeah. We really like them. We thought he made a ton of sense for a lot of teams. It's funny. Like, frankly, the team he's on in New Orleans. I don't know how much sense he makes for them long term because their most important player is Zion and for Zion to be at his utmost success level. Probably need to surround him with a lot of shooters. And while herb Jones is shooting 37% from three right now, that's going to be his swing scale in terms of does he stay as a long-term piece in New Orleans or does it all make sense for him? So operand Schengen, do you want to talk about him very quickly? He's been great as a conservative facilitator, crazed ball handler for a big, I don't know what you do with him defensively right now. I don't I'm so sick of seeing his per hundred possessions or 36 minutes stats. I don't want to I don't want to see him anymore. It's not real life. He's shown some really nice flashes too. He is great footwork like a ballerina feet in that he spins. He drives. He.
"mobley" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"I don't want to take anything away from him. But these three 7 footer lineups, the guy that makes them work, the guy that makes them make sense is Evan mobley. So I don't even really think there's a case for anyone else for rookie of the year. Evan Evan mobley has completely worked in conjunction with improvement of others, but he is presence has worked to turn around a Cleveland Cavaliers organization to go from one of the 5 worst teams in the NBA to one of the ten best teams in the NBA so far. That's not to say The Rookie of the year race is over. We have half the year left, but if we're doing a mid season rookie of the year, vote right now, I do not think you can give it to anyone else other than Evan mobile. And frankly, in terms of long-term upside, I think that Evan mobile is coming close to exceeding what I think aid Cunningham's long term upside is. Will be? But we will talk about cade later and why I'm still very bullish on him. What an opening statement. Man, how do I follow that for first things first? Hand up. I was wrong. I was wrong on, I was very critical of Laurie Martin and Jared Allen Evan mobile. I'm like, me too, this works. Everything goes small. You need one, 5, not three of them, and then it was Laurie Martin's going to play the three. I can't really shoot. I'll make it work. They'll switch. They pay Jared Allen's monster contract. The cats have this pick and we said, well, you can just draft that guy. Why do you gotta pay a hundred something million for Jared Allen? It's all work. So the Kobe album, my apologies, kobi album and also went to umas for grad school. So I think that ties into some of it, just a minute, meant figuring it out. Game theory. Kobe Altman. For Evan mobile's specifically, it's sort of like the sleeping monster has become an awakened monster. There were some red flags going into the season going to the draft about intensity. And I don't know that I would say red. I would say like yellow. What? It was a car. It wasn't white. It wasn't red. But red flags is like Kevin Porter getting in his car and leaving in the middle of the game. Or like the color that hasn't been qualified yet on the roygbiv scale, but there are questions. Let's put that one set of flags questions, right? About how locked in, he can be all the time. He had a game here in score, a field goal. Things that a potential number one pick would scare you a little bit. And now you turn it on and he's like all over the place. He's twitchy, he's shifty the positional versatility he's even better than I thought on defense like when he switches on to a guard late in the game. Normally, a panic can be like, well I hope somebody switches back. I'm good..

"Combination of rubio. Sexton garlan look solid as well. Oh yeah and kevin love. Looks like he is trying. Please confirm that it is early and none of the above statements are real thanks Great email adam appreciate you You chiming in here. I think just right off the top. This is a top three leak past team for me. I'm watching. I'm just watching. I'm all in. I'm just watching all their games. I wanna see him ably. I love garland I'm increasingly down on sexton. And i think his his situation is really interesting because he did not sign the extension and i wonder how much he will be going outside of the offense or what's best for the team for his own statistics We will see. I'll be monitoring that as the cavaliers correspondent open flora cavaliers correspondent for this entire season. But you know. I mentioned earlier. Evan moberly as a you know. Just a tenacious defender honestly. If i'd like a vote. Though for defensive player of the year jared allen would be on my ballot so soon in the season now. That's ridiculous thing to say. But he is the way he is like the rim protection and everything that is known for but like he's switching out on guys and just stifling them like moving his feet using his leg not getting beat on globe is when he does get blow by sees contesting from behind blocking shots. Off the backboard. I i love jared allen. I love the mobely. Alan combination in you. Wrote you wrote about this in your piece. This week on ten transfrom early in the season but i believe it was the market in allen. Mobile front court has a ninety eight defensive rating. Yeah cleveland allowed the clippers score seventy nine points in a basketball game and on the road. I think that speaks. Frankly more to to those guys mobile allen. Not that margaret are in bad. And but it's funny because i think when they drafted nobly house is going gonna work like they wanna sign allen to this big extension or these two guys gonna sense. Go there. long-term league play small cetera. And it's just vid outstanding to watch them work. It's been outstanding to watch them work. They're really good on with you. It's a fun team. Are they good. Like the email. As i think they're i think they're going to be competitive plan. Can they make the plan. Can they make the plan hot. This team was happening last year. I'd say yes. This is the east. I don't know east is really deep. This year You have that. You have the brooklyn philly milwaukee miami boston tier your washington chicago. Charlotte we both think. Indiana could be good if they ever get healthy I don't know if i mentioned dimension. Washington i maybe did already even said atlanta yet. There's also the knicks. So i hesitate to say they can. They can make the plan. I wouldn't bet on it just because they're such a log jam in the east here. But i think they're going to be competitive night in the night in a way that they have not been the last few years so i think that that's fair. I mean i would probably still be a little surprised if they did make the plan. I think that that would probably say more about another team's failure than their success. But i quickly want to shout out ricky. Rubio uh the like ultimate floor raising presidents everywhere. He goes man. They the articles..

It's it's incredible to watch. I mean there's some guards who really really good at it him. Kyle lowry and fred vanfleet. I remember in that celtics playoff series in the bubble. It was incredible watching them how high they would pick up guards and fight over screens etc like there are some guys who do it in remind you that it is possible way. And what. what is that separation between You know solid defenders in great defenders. And i think careers great defender. So i wanna talk for two seconds about The warriors grizzlies game which was also awesome green. Great game Without looking. I don't know if you have the box score front if you do not look at it. How many three pointers did steph curry attempt in this game. Oh god he was piling up sixteen. Twenty twenty yeah. He had like seven in the third quarter or something he took twenty. Three's and forty one minutes Just god bless steph curry. He is finished with thirty six and eight. The gravity is the gravity. Everybody knows that Was really he had the The grizzlies just in fits trying to chase him around at points throughout the game off screens back door. He's just you know. I think like we're talking. Wanna talk about miranda. Obviously 'cause he's yeah. I think i agree one hundred percent with you. The moran is right now today. This will have been flow. But right now today i would say if i was ranking ten best players in the world's john marantz obviously on that has to be but like if steps gonna be this good all year which is totally like if he stays healthy. Just kind of like thirty. We're talking thirty points a game Right now he's averaging thirty eight and six assists shooting thirty percent from deep which is which is bad for him. He's the craig bathroom on thirteen attempts and all of them. Almost all of them are like really tough shots. But like i don't know what do you like is steph lake. I don't know i like. are we under. Step me to me. My take away from that was and i wrote about this too. Because he's on my first week all nba team but jeff bridges. I can't believe that you texted me to ask. I know you mouth night. That was the same night. Barnes hit the game winner against the size bars over the top of my bridges. It's been one he tailed off after the 'back-to-back thirty point games start the season. He's been great he. You know. I apologize to him in the start. That section but You know barnes at that game winner. And i was like nah. I got well. I wanted to talk about harrison barnes. To maybe i'll bring them up again later. Let's bring them up when we talk about the suns yet the sunset so to me. What's interesting about curry is first of all. I know you're sorta like rightfully pretty upset last year..
"mobley" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"I dropped this drawer of old tomato sauce on the floor my kitchen. Now there is just glass in like old gross tomato sauce everywhere. It's all over my socks splattered like it's a crime scene and man you try cleaning up like borderline moldy tomato sauce at one fifteen trying not to pick out the trying to pick out the glass as you go absolutely awful. Just nothing good happens when you leave your apartment late at night. I should have just been in bed by ten pm last night. This is what happens when i try to do something. The next time. I ask for a raise Me trying to transition from the story. You just told us the nba on this. Podcast will be brought up as exhibit a. As i qualify go. Yeah but that was a wonderful totally disgusting story sharing Moving on to basketball in today's show we're going to open up the mailbag.

We had joking noah and all of his old friends at the united center. I was particularly pleased to see. Oh mir i love oh mirage vic so dearly the grizzlies in the warriors had playing rematch. That went to overtime. It was awesome. Great game so tell me something interesting that you noticed while watching it all just whatever stands out to you. I mean there are some really good games last night mike. I don't know how you could neglect Being bombed the knicks pulling off a pretty impressive win in chicago I think there's a couple of things You know. I wrote a story today. It was called the first week all nba team. I was the five guys who have been the most impressive. I think at the start of the season john moran was on there. He's been so good to the point where i'm wondering if the grizzlies kind of need to alter their time in what they are it like. He's a top fifteen player right now. Could he be a top ten player right now. Like how good is drama rant. What does he ceiling in. How do the grizzlies kind of adjust what they wanna do. Because they were talented roster. I think we we jaren jackson junior to be great. But what are they gonna do. Kinda take that next step from cute playoff team to kind of you know. They're threatening to go deep in the playoffs. Rea- i thought that was really interesting. And i gotta say. The knicks almost blew that game at the end. They eleven point lead. I think with under two minutes to go and go. Kay i'm flipping off this game. You know it's over. That i see everyone tweeting. Whoa the buzzer within three. They get within one point at the same time. That's a really impressive. Win for the next I know that like maybe people are still unsure. Just how good them in the bulls really are.
"mobley" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"So it's going to be hard for him to win the player of the year, probably because mobly is just going to be in such a good position to do. I know we're going wild here. I mean, it's early, but he's, I mean, he was like blocking dunks at the apex, and another thing I would say to you, this is a thing that people underrate, you know, the mentality like you said was correct about like, you know, Garnett's motor, mental motor is really big, physical motor mental motor. Mobley has something that a lot of those guys have too, and that he's defensively ambidextrous. We talk a lot about life, pastors being aimed extras. You watch him. He can block with either hand he can deflect balls. He also has really accurate hands. You see him dig on balls and he's so skinny that he can avoid fouling. He's not just like wildly swatting, and that was something that jaren Jackson junior was a guy that I think we kind of thought was going to be this. It hasn't come along because he's so foul pro. Mobile has a different sort of coordination on that level defensively. He's special. Davis first year. He was 13 and a half and 8. Duncan, we can't compare because Duncan was a finished product when he came in the league. He did four years in college. But if you're just talking about the guys that are coming in after one year in college, who are bigs, he's as advances anybody we've seen. I also kind of stunned by how advanced he is. Dare we say the word akeem would it be blasphemous? Am I gonna get struck by lightning if I bring that name? Yeah, but even Hakeem was in college for a few years though. And yeah, they're different players. I don't think defensively, it just means. So a team is a great example of somebody who, as the years passed, things just kind of get lost. He was an absolute athletic freak. The first couple years when he came in, there's the sequence. You can watch in the clinching Celtics game. When they beat Houston to win the finals, 86. There's a sequence when Hakeem just takes over the game in the second quarter for like three minutes. I think he strips Walton three straight times. He just it's all of a sudden it looks like he came from another planet. And, you know, I don't know if Moby's like that. Again, he reminds me more of the KG, but this is the kind of territory we're talking about. It is completely improbable for a tall guy to come into the league with one year of college under his belt and be as good defensively and as an all around player as this guy is already. As I said at the top, it feels like he's in year three already. And that's why, you know, we spent 15 minutes on it. What's your what's your biggest overreaction after 9 days or so? If I have to think of another one. That's a big one for me. I mean, the suggs thing is troubling. I know we're kind of on The Rookie thing here. Just from talking to some people. And in a bad training camp too, right? It's not like this was just the games. This is like, this has been pretty from the get go that there is concerns. Yeah, you want to take it slow. I mean, it's early and it's probably kind of mounting up on him. This is probably the first time in his literally he's been a dominant athlete a lot of these guys are, but I mean, he was always physically dominant in a way where I think that his change of change of pace and his his ability to sort of go between his gears. And we see this with rookie point guards a ton, but he's looked a little like physically, he's look small. I don't want to say he looks tiny. It's just like he has been playing in a way like he's been acting surprised by the length and the speed of the NBA, which surprised me a little bit. I was going to say he looks small and kind of a half second late. Yeah. Which could be easy in his head. You know, a little bit there too. I mean, I'm not out on him. He's a sharp kid, and he's a great athlete, and I think it'll come along. But I kind of expected him to sort of impose his personality on this magic team pretty quickly. But he's been kind of a question mark so far. Well, you know it's been surprising, Cole Anthony has been alpha doggy and some of these games. I don't know how much magic you've watched, but he seems like the driving force of that team and both ends, too. Like he takes he's one of those guys he takes the charge and he's lying on the ground doing like the braveheart double fist pump and so maybe he sugs didn't expect that either that I think Cole Anthony looked at her like, well, this is my team. And you're like, all right, settle down Cole Anthony, but the way he's played the first 5 games he's carried himself that way. I think of this as in this happens sometimes with the draft, which was like, Moby goes in the perfect spot. He's got Alan next to him. He's got Kevin Love. He's got marketing. So there's a buffer if he doesn't play well in any given game. That we've had it yet. Guys who can score, it's just the right team for him. Barnes goes to the right team, right? It's a Toronto team that doesn't necessarily care what they're doing. They want him to be the point guard. They have perimeter guys that can play off him. So the balls in his hands and he's and he's playing with like that infectious enthusiasm and then defensively, he can guard any perimeter put you have. Perfect for him. It goes to Orlando. Maybe not the same. If sug goes to Toronto, better situation. Yeah. Better, better veteran team to kind of go into. He has the ball more, so I just think the way it worked out for Barnes was great because on that Orlando team, which is so bizarre. How many centers do they have 7? Something like that. It's like, yeah, it's like an airline at this point they have so much wingspan on that team. But I think that it was a we talk about this going up to the draft that it was a tough situation for Orlando because they were just kind of squeezed into making this decision. And over and over again, like historically, I don't know when we're going to learn, but it's like whenever you make the consensus decision, I don't know, it's like, just take the best player. Maybe they thought that I'm sure they thought with the guy, but they were just kind of in a fit situation. Who do you think they wanted to take? I mean, I think they wanted suggs at their spot. I mean, I'm sure they would have taken okay with.
"mobley" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"Had a few backdoor cuts for donks and he hit a few better passes, the shot has to improve but I'm not, I'm not jumping ship on a guy when I bought this just isn't his style play. Yeah, and like, if anything like I feel like I was a little bit more down on Franz throughout the pre-draft process. Like, I, I'd had him at like, fourteen or fifteen on my board. I think versus the consensus top 10. That he seemed to be, I get it. I think he's going to be a good basketball player. But like I don't really care what this looks like for him and it's the same thing. The teenagers played the Cavs. Like I don't really care what some early this year looks like for Evan Mobley. There's, he has no chance of being efficient right now because he's just too thin black. It's that doesn't, it's not a comment on who he's going to be long term as an NBA player and he's shown some real flashes as a passer, like totally as much as we saw late in the year particular issue with UFC. He's shown some very ridiculous lashes as a passer so far in summer league. And that's the kind of stuff that I care to see. I don't really care that he shoots five 4:15 from the field right now because he's just so skinny that it's just not going to not going to be a great time for him in summer. That had his welcome to the first game. Two, he caught and turned, I'm going to dump this in caged, birds like no, you are not and punched away and he did show some nice things and stretches. I was worried about the turnovers in the post or the first game of Josh Christopher kind of Switched onto him. He had done country and go to the paint job. It's explosion with his feet set. And this last game they happen, they ran a lot more the offense through him, and the commentator said they're using him. It's like a point Center of sorts with dribble, handoff sand side, pick-and-rolls defensively. He's already much closer there. Especially the lottery he recovers and teammates, a beat to protect the rim. He'd he'd saved a couple of plays or two, it's just he it's going to take time. It's way she quit ten points here, it's much more physical, but he seemed at ease game, too, and kind of get the game when Jitters out and just have to be careful not to really like box score Scout either because there were stretches he took like three more than belong to look like, you know, totally a warranted number, whatever top three pick in the draft. So, big steak long should develop. I'm not, I'm not really worried about what he's doing right now or no, some right now, some of the flashes athletically ridiculous. Like he's just so much more coordinated than ninety-nine percent of The Bigs in the NBA. Maybe 95% of the pigs in the NBA. It's going to be a game. And he is playing next to a center right now, in fee on do, and Kelly. And I don't think that that has worked super well, that probably is more of a function of cop Angelic than off of Moberly playing the four but Waits apart. So, are you worried about then the next step during the regular season, with him next to a center. Yeah, I am. I still am. We'll see how it goes off. Like, it'll, I think again like I think it's probably more, a function of fionn, do, Kelly. It's not being an NBA player, then like Evan Mobley being bad or like this being a benefit or anything like that. But my my hesitations about Evan Mobley playing the four have not been changed by what we've seen so far. I would say no has troubleshoot.
Why USC's Evan Mobley Is the Best Big in the 2021 Draft
"For the next two months in advance of the two thousand twenty one nba draft that is scheduled for july twenty nine. We're going to be dedicating an episode of beyond college basketball. Podcast to notable prospect. Same way we did in advance of last year's nba draft. We started this series last week with a twenty two minute profile of kate cunningham. If you missed it and you're interested don't find it today. We will turn our attention to another prospect who seems like lot to go in the top five of the two thousand twenty one nba draft. His name is evan mobile. he's a seven foot center. Who averaged sixteen point four points. Eight point seven rebounds. Two point nine blocks in two point four assists in thirty three point nine minutes per game in his one season at usc shop fifty seven point eight percent from the field. He was the pac twelve player of the year freshman of the year and pac twelve defensive player of the year. He was a consensus second team. All american who led usc to the elite eight of the ncaa tournament. Most mock drafts have him second or third in this. Two thousand twenty one. nba draft. So let's start with this dead leg. Is evan mobely to you clearly. Unquestionably the best big in this rat. Yes i think. That is unquestionable. We agree. I mean at this point. How about this. How about this for a quick complica- compare him to a recent big one. He played against and was good against james wiseman to me mobilize more versatile player with the higher upside and a year ago in a weaker draft. Class what's interesting is wise men went second moby might wind up going second or third we mentioned in the previous partly sided. I don't think he's going to go. I in this draft because of centers. And how they're viewed and how their role is changing By the year but it is interesting like if you put mobile wiseman even knowing what wise. Men's out like a year ago i would have said the same thing i think i would still take mobely over wise men coming out of college and we agree on the sofa. If we agree there yes mobis got to be the best big available in this
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Make it. Look seamless and editing. There was one shot where i think. The camera was tilted in a way where you'd see several floors at the same time and i think you're going in one direction with one reaper. And then somebody else's being chased below you and it's happening at the same time so that was that was a cool thing and you know when everything's cut together. It seems like one continuous flow. Yes like kind of. It's just a chaotic battle. Yeah but it was. Cut it together brilliantly. I really liked the pacing of that scene and it was something we really haven't seen before. So i i really appreciated the the originality of it a little bit so i was school. The whole mythology that he created for the movie was pretty neat. And i think the whole concept of it that wants to help people get away. People managed to get out. Yeah yeah yeah. I love it great. I think it's a terrific idea. And i kinda surprised that it hadn't been used before. I think he did a great job. With what i like to. Is you know from an emotional side of your characters. He's not just all doing these action. Things is that it's really thing you connect watching him as with his girlfriend. I mean there's enough. There's enough scenes with him early on to establish they have a pretty tight relationship. I think they're engaged if i remember. So yes they are. So they're they're pretty tight and you know they're gonna do something really cool together and then he kind of all this happens and then he Oh i have to also say for the folks when they see the scene they have the in your couple couple in the film Your character and your girlfriend's care you're like a special place and that was a great special place to join another location that we got for free that just immaculate setting it. Was you know huge waterfall. And which is up kind of north georgia area on a college campus. Oh really yeah. Yeah and I think they were a little concerned with us. Shooting up there but you know we we. We reassure them that we were good people. And when you weren't there to mess up anything we just need to get some shots and it's just it's gorgeous gorgeous himself but he he did have a nice emotional arc with her like you know. A lot of his motivation in the film is essentially. What out saying anymore she goes missing. And that's part of his motivation is to find her. So i just like that. And there are some nice little moments with him You know it emotionally that. He goes through that. I liked the videotape when he sees the video with her. I thought you know you have to really you have to really bring it that scene otherwise it just falls apart and i thought she did. I thought that was really uh goal. Was it a bit of a challenge because a lot of times you're not really with her. I mean you're seeing on the tape. You're talking on the phone. I mean it's it's is it more of a challenge when you don't have the the actual scene the person to kind of convey those feelings and do that kind of thing. Yeah definitely of course. You don't have the actor to feed off of four to you. Know to take your your your emotional cues from. Yeah there's a lot of kind of summing that you know in a vacuum a little bit buzz. Every actor has their half their ways have their ways of doing that kind of stuff and do the best. You can with what you've got and sure try to make as honest as possible. There's a great scene where Where he really blended as beautifully where there's a big important information given out on the news and you're and he's showing all these people watching the same news report and the cameras like moving and then and then it ends with you and i thought that was just talk about capturing a feeling and then sustaining and really delivering and i thought that was really a nice nice moment. Yeah i i love that shot. And i thought that was so such a cool conceit to do it that way and to show virtually in one shot i mean changing but everybody seeing the same thing at one time and kind of using a single camera move to convey all that i loved it. I thought it was driven. And you're seeing their emotional reaction to it too. Which i thought was great. I mean i really like that. so yes. that's a very indie like film kind of move. You know which. I thought was a whole the dalai shot crop. Yeah that was very like That's like hey let's go for it. You know and that was that was nice. That was really really nice. And then there's some nice scenes in the church with you that i thought were really cool to that. You did that some good stuff there too. Yeah so leah. there's some there's some interesting little things with him. there's an interesting reveal about him Towards the film we find out A little bit about his past and what happened and so that was that was cool. Did you guys actually shoot in a real hospital for some of the scenes. yeah the The hospital sequence was a a real hospital. That was not A functioning hospital okay. It was Outpatient okay so during the day during the week they would have people in one wing of the hospital then over the weekend it was completely vacated so we got permission to go in there and virtually shoots all weekend Which was a very hellacious few days. Just 'cause you know you're up. All our i mean shooting fourteen sixteen hour days or something just to get everything done and it was kinda spooky to. This place was Old and had these really creepy operating rooms. Ace meant so it really it all that kind of enhanced the feeling that that you know that this was not a safe place to be so but it was fun. It was a fun few days. And plus you're shooting not only knows it's not in sequence. It's based on location. So you're shooting everything you need from the hot. Yeah we had to go back to. You had You know you think you're done with something like oh great we're done and then you know you pick ups where you've gotta go back and get something that you didn't get or something that makes the story flow a little bit better and so we ended up having to go back but we got everything we needed. I think to one thing. And i interviewed him recently and i'm glad that he scored this film. Christopher carter's or. I thought he did a bang-up job with the music. Yeah he's amazing that one tracking shot for example the the music that he laid beneath that was perfect. Talk about capturing the mood enhancing the visuals. It was just great. I mean the score's everywhere and you know he incorporates a lot of different things but You know creepy action because you have a little bit of both You know. I mean at times to the reapers are matrix light but not really the matrix but but they're reapers but You know it was. It was interesting. And i.
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Film noir but I really enjoy what they're doing. We yesterday was a lie. I think it's sufficiently Asteria and stylistic and everything. So i mean we're all getting bits and pieces because the film is just literally you just finished not too long ago right. Don't think they've even finished a month yet. But essentially it's has nor elements but sci fi elements as. Well yeah and that really makes for something. That's its own animal. It's not something you can candidate. Is this a horror film. Fi fell film thing so a category. Necessarily that fits into absolutely have you. What have you seen of the trailer. And i've been impressed. I really have. I mean the production values. Look first rate you know. There's a shot at kp where she's walking in the fog with a fedora and i'm sitting there going. Wow they really worked on this one. You can see it shot definitely so i mean you know. This is a For james it's a labor of love too of course but you know. I'm just very impressed with him and i think he has a very bright future ahead of him as a director too. I think he's exactly side. He's very committed in you. Spend on this thing for years. So i i really. I really hope the best for him. For the for the movie They deserve it now. Had you met some of the other actors before before doing this project no. I hadn't everyone everyone i met was were new new people to me. Really a pleasure working with with kipling chase. They're great it's been fun. Did you get a chance to meet some of the other people. Maybe you didn't work with ice to briefly like john. I only met john When we did the re- through and then maybe a couple of other like cast meetings or something like that. I remember Some of the initial initial readings way back win But that was really Because we didn't work. We didn't have any scenes together. So that's really like. I didn't really you know being a fan of films and things like that you know when i used to watch movies as a kid and even like a teenager. You thought well everybody he worked on. The movie knew each other but it works. I mean if you're not necessarily in the scene with someone that chances are you're you're not on the set of the day you know that they're working so you don't necessarily know those people get you know anytime on your voc people that nfl that our buddy. And then that's the first time they met Yeah exactly and that's of what our job you know. Make the allusion pill real. That's why they call it acting. You know when you connect with a total stranger in your your. We've been buddies for years. So that's cool. So are you going to be able to do the film festival circuit. Are you going to be able to attend some of those or i would love to. I'm not sure. I don't know where it's going to go yet but i would love to. I'm gonna do all hand to try to get to some of them. Depending on how how successful. They are getting into the into the festival. So cool yeah. I would love to. I love the i love doing that and I got a chance. The first time i got to do with the other side. Yeah we went to slam dance and a couple of other festivals and it was just a blast. I mean you're there with a bunch of other people that are trying to do the same thing and they all have a film that they're trying to promote it. It's a really encouraging fun environment. Being did you get a chance to see the other side with an audience. Yeah i did in festivals And that was the first time we've seen it with kind of an objective audience. I guess you know it wasn't people that had just worked on the film right. You know people that were paying their film festival goers but people are paying to come see hidden got a tremendous response we. We always had a really good response so toys. Nice segue into that film. I mean i thought what. I was impressed with Speaking of another director gregg. Bishop i think has somebody to keep an eye on this from this film and he's also very typically new to the process and i was just really impressed with what he did with the budget that he had. You know you can see that. It wasn't very high budget but it doesn't mean the film has to be sloppy. You know i know and then I thought i thought from all the principal actors and even the secondary actors. I think he got good performances from everybody too. So i mean i mean for you. That must have been a challenge. It was at the most physical role. You've ever done what you say. Oh definitely yeah certainly. Yeah i mean how much of it was you. Did you have anybody something for you at any part at all i did and i i did. Maybe eighty percent of the stunts. I mean i did all the all the fighting and combat type stuff which is total blast. I mean it's like a kid in the candy store because it just getting do all the stuff that every boy wants to. Do you know we had a team. That's a local stunt team there in in atlanta which is where we shot. yeah Black knight stunt at by nils on saga and he And he brought. He brought some amazingly talented people. That common basically up up the level of film by having these great stunts and one particular stunt where i jump off the hotel which is which is cool. Fun kinda highlight stunt. The film i think and they had a guy that came into that so that was not me We don't we had a few people on board for that. I saw that scene and that was definitely one of those. I didn't expect that coming kind of you know that. Was it really. Cut that sequence together so beautifully to the whole thing. That happens at the At the hotel one of the things that impressed me about You know the some of the things that he did and then that was like the the exclamation part of the scene play button. Yeah i just liked the journey of your character and what he goes through. You know so. People know it's essentially your character is safe to say character gets killed. Yeah and then. He ends up in You know the other place in the bad play and we find out why to write won't give that away for those. I haven't seen it. Some of those scenes were interesting You know how you use different type lenses and distorted things and then had you with blood and stuff and it looks like some of you guys were wearing no closer naked. Was that right or a really. That's why i joke with people. That was my first feature film already doing new things. I didn't didn't take me very long to you know do it. All but done very tastefully and what i thought. His premise in his concept was that And this is all part of the synopsis. So i'm not giving anything away but right character gives to hell. His thing was that you go to hell. You don't you don't have close. I mean thrown in there like you're like out exposed completely vulnerable. That made that made total sense to me and it. that doesn't mean that it wasn't uncomfortable. Shooting it it's definitely makes sense for you..
"mobley" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"I'm john. Newton in the newly released yesterday was alive. Black and white indie film that you guys would love to see should be out soon and you're listening to sifi daw our coverage continues or the film. Yesterday was a lie with an interview with nathan mobley who plays the lab technician in film. We also talked to nathan about another film. He's out that you get on. Dvd call the other side and he also previews and upcoming project a short scifi film that he's working on his well. Let's go to the phones and nathan mobley. Thanks for for being on the show. I done eighth and i really appreciate it in. Yesterday was a lie. I mean you play the lab assistant but that's very misleading and movies. Because a lot of times when you just have a name. Doesn't it means smaller part. But i know in yesterday. A lot of people just have names like that cases characters singer for example so it doesn't mean anything as far as what the scope of the role is. Can you kind of describe. And i know this is a different kind of film. We don't want to give any spoilers shirt in the context of the film. What your character is Well like you said he's His job as a lab assistant. He's working in this lab where they're doing some. I guess it's okay for me to say some undercover very clandestine type work and The kind of stuff that not many people know about obviously so so hero comes to to kind of tap into whatever they're doing and the last what was great about the labs distant was created the role with that not only is he kind of giving them some pivotal information for the film but he's also Fun to play because he's Also girl crazy but he happens to be a big dork. So therein lies with rama and So these beautiful women come in and not in his wildest dreams has he. Does he ever think that this could be something going to happen to him. So they using their powers of coercion. Then and you know that beautiful woman have they they they attempt to get some of the sensitive information out of the lab system. Would that be in the sense of kipling's character of oil and so Chases singer oil on singer I wanna dance around a little bit. But essentially is this something these experiments something related to time. Yes okay it is when people pieces together with john newton's interview that we have they know that something's up and actually as it has come out that there is apparently a nazi journal. That is out there. That has like dr frankenstein. Secrets of life and death. This one has pretty much some really interesting information and concrete theories on time and manipulating it. So right so that's kinda like the the the arctic. Like in raiders law stark. Or you know the the the thing that everybody wants it or because of the film noir references this film. I guess you could say. It's like the maltese falcon and the loose of a piece of history that contains that they need to kind of you know the final piece of the puzzle spotted you come to this project Interestingly my good friend. Josh waters who Was the casting director for the film or at least in a like assistant role. I'm not sure what is title is exactly what he was helping to cast a film and we we went to high school together and and perform together and so we knew each other and he said. Hey there's this film that. I'm working on that i'm helping to cast. And there's a role at the you'd be create for and that was fiscal yet and i went in win re For james and andrew. And and we had. I think we have maybe one or two call backs and analysis about it took a while. They were they were they. Were you know securing the funding which is always An arduous undertaking for a for a independent film. Sure to a little bit of a little bit of time but then we started rehearsing getting the ball rolling as fun. How much rehearsal time did you have With the cast. Oh man we heard of. I mean we had we would get together for hersal at least like at least three weeks where we got together once or twice a week and spend a few hours working on the scene which is really a luxury because you don't hear that too often and maybe you know because it was an independent film. The smaller film have that luxury. We could get together some spare time and i loved it. I thought it was great. And you just makes you that much more prepared on the day when you go to shoot you kind of ready for anything because you've been through it all so did you start like maybe like a table reading kind of thing and then maybe do something. We're james may blocked out some things or definitely. We started with with a read initially with all the all the actors Table read and then and then we got together and started breaking down and he started rehearsing individual senior. Yeah we actually blocked it out. Got a real sense of you. Know how things are they. I think they wanted to nail down whether locations. We're going to rain. And then they had that in that rains then we start blocking and that sort of thing. It was good fun now. was locations mostly indoors or a laboratory. Somebody would have to be endorsed. I would think. Yeah all all of everything that i shot was indoor and i believe the majority of the film was Was indoors as well. I think there were a couple of like allie shots or things like that. But it's all at night. Yes so they had anything. We did endorse a block out. We're shooting during the day. We had a block out all the windows and you know really high. Very dramatic lighting thinks. it's filmed war. Yes peace so you're shooting for black and white so essentially the colors that you wear as i've talked to some of the other actors have to work for black and white. So did you wear guinea. Strange color combinations. That looked horrible in color in black and white look right on. I don't know. I don't remember honestly. I don't think my character kind of like. I said he was a little bit of a. You know he wasn't the hit. This cat you know in the world so you know anything that he wore with slightly on the dorky side. Anyway so. I don't remember the colors being especially you know clashing or anything like that from what i've seen. Everything looks great. it really plays well. Have you had a chance to see some of the film or most of it or the only thing. All that i saw was what the trailer. And then when i went into when we did. Some of the eighty are some of the dialogue recording. After the fact. I saw some of the film. Then okay cool because you're basically trying to match up and i don't know if you're if you're listening they probably do. People are so savvy these days but You do think called looping which is where you go in and the dialogue that you get on the day on the day of the shoot. A lot of times doesn't work because you've got other noises running over it or whatever and so you have to go back into a studio after the film was shot and rerecord some dialogue but it has to match precisely to you know your movements and everything so it's kind of a. It's it's difficult but it's fun. I will you a fan of fossil film noir. All did you like those movies. I honestly i hadn't seen a lot of it and I watched some more. You know when when this When we did this. But you know. I'm not.

Three by Evan, His toe is very close to the line. They may check that at the next Time out. So the ball into Bentley Bentley comes in the lane Bentley kicks out. Haider Jared Hiders checking the game. He's going to take a three from the right wing that one's good and a foul a chance for a four point play for Jared Hider. So cows back out in front 41 40.

He's got foul trouble all over the place and as a white is getting the hook. Ethan Anderson comes in, but Ethan comes in off the bench with three fouls. So No respite for and feel in terms of foul trouble. He does have plenty of depth of the wing spot to play through it. Haider makes the free throw completes the four point play in cows back in front. 42 40 bears led by as many as three in that first half large team and gets an early call off the cow bench.

I was gonna go with the doctor Jig for J. P. Oliver than you are. Yeah, It's very good. But again, it didn't work and the bears back to work on offense.

ET was really good in the first half shooting for USC back out. Having mobile in the big guy from deep connects. Really? I think I'll take a look at that.

Isaiah Rushing it the other way in our travel now looking to take anti ceviche kicks it to Evan Evan drives inside. Everyone throw it up, no good and Evan's going right back to the free throw line. As there seems to be no match up for him. Listen, there's no match for him in this league, but there certainly is no match for him in this Cal lineup right now. And this time it's team in that bumped Evan on the way up, so Evan will shoot two more Trojans free throw shooting woes well documented.

NCAA rules Memphis freshman James Wiseman ineligible for 12 games
"Never convince me that penny hardaway a was just by cannon out money to a mom because the mom wanted to move to be close to the daughter if the mom son was a mid major player. I bet that doesn't happen. It happened because James Wideman was the best prospect his age literally in the world. Okay so that's that's his version But even if you accept the more likely realistic not dumb virgin which is now he was trying to get. James is in high school to play basketball for east high school so he could win a state championship. That still doesn't rise to the level of what these cases usually are in other words. Penny Hardaway was a memphis booster. Yes and he provided money to a mother of of a student athlete. A recruit a student athlete true but it wasn't to get James Wiseman to go to Memphis. It was to get as many go to east high school and so that's unusual. That's not the way these things normally work now. I do think you can start to connect some dots here. Because Penny has said that he had no idea when he provided that money to James Wiseman and it allowed to move to Memphis. He had no idea that he was going to be Memphis head coach in one day recruit James. Listen to Memphis and I can't tell you what he had hit so I can't say that's is not true. I can just tell you that. I had an idea that he would be the head coach Memphis in fact on the day. James Wiseman moved to Memphis. I said this is why. You've got fire W. Smith after this season in higher penny hardaway it because if you wait another season as minority be signed to Kentucky but if you do it after this season after James's junior year of high school then at some point either before or during his senior year of High School Penny Hardaway could bring him and the other players that ever relationships with to the University of Memphis so it penny didn't have any idea it was going to happen. That's fine but I had a very clear idea. That not only should happen that it probably could and it actually did so. Oh I do think you can reasonably say and it was interesting because the incident late term this a recruiting inducements and I think you can reasonably caught a recruiting inducement. And here's how the eleven thousand five hundred dollars that went to wise. Mother is what led to him being east high school and him being at East High School at at least contributed to Penny Hardaway. Getting the job and I don't think there's any way to intelligently argue that that financial commitment mid-may that he made to the family didn't help him. Recruit James Wiseman to the university Memphis. I I don't WanNa go on off like ten minute tangent but like. How many degrees breeze removed is that from Mike Boynton hiring Kenan Cunningham to his staff geographic advantage in addition to a familiar one or USC doing the same thing? With the Mobley's you're providing a financial opportunity for the family to be closer to a geographic region. Now that's legal. I have no problem with them. Hiring you're like what like how many degrees separated really from all of that. No listen I'm with you know doing what Penny Wise Men's mother to get. Get James Wiseman eight really that much different than when I say it's less I think it's I don't think I think it's less offensive. Well here's here's the thing. Whatever were you think's offensive not offensive? I got here's the problem. One is allowed. The other is not answering. Wanted to boil down to that. That's what it's always going to boil down to and if you want to change the roles I've said it a million times. Put me in charge. GimMe all the power. I'll change all the roost rules tomorrow. But the rules are the rules as long as they're in place and what might Boynton I did is allowed. And what Penny Hardaway did is not allowed and it really is simple as that you can hate the instable a all you want. I Hate I'm too but this is an undeniable violation and when Memphis started down the path that started it created additional problems that they did not I need to create.

If you have a retirement account chances are that you have more money because of Jack Bogle by creating that first index fund back in the nineteen seventies. Bogle started a revolution of super-efficient, low cost investing a revolution that took on Wall Street firms and the high fees that they charge investors and Bogle became a champion for the little guy investor maybe because he knew. What it was like not to have enough money. His family lost everything they had in the great depression. So I grew up having to earn. What I got help out with the family expenses and started working when I was nine years old today, the company Bogle founded vanguard manages more than five trillion dollars, some of that could be your retirement savings, and it structured essentially as a nonprofit I met Jack Bogle a few years ago. It is summer cottage in upstate New York and sitting down with him as like sitting down with an instantly likable college. Professor we live in this difficult world where we kind of believe the American ways of you try harder you will do better than if you pay a professional to do something it will pay off.

This was when a bogus key insights, the market doesn't really have that high return to the fees that you pay the cost is everything and those fees can eat up half of the money. You would otherwise have down the road. The tyranny of come. Finding long-term costs because they each you up hiring mutual fund managers to try to pick this stock over that stock Bogle showed that eighty five ninety percent of the time you're gonna make more money just buying the entire stock market. Just a big list and index of say the biggest companies in the US, it could be ten times cheaper or twenty times cheaper. And you'll make way more money over time. That's what broad-based index funds. Let you do. And that's why bogus been celebrated as basically the George Washington of an investing revolution. Jack mobilised Mobley done more for the American investor than any man in the country. Jack. There is that's perhaps the most famous investor in the world Warren Buffett honoring Bogle in two thousand seventeen I estimate Jack at a minimum has left in the pockets of investors. Tens and tens of billions and the numbers are going to be hundreds and hundreds of billions over time buffet called Bogle a real hero. We should say to that. While Bogle was a critic of greed and excess on Wall Street. He was also a big fan of capitalism as the best system in the world. And he spoke out calling for young people the leaders of tomorrow to be more idealistic follow his lead and clean up the mess. Chris Arnold NPR news.
