"That's going to be something they're going to want to address. I wonder if the players might ask for some changes in the way restricted free agency operates. Because we see situations like this, it's one, two, sometimes more players each year were restricted free agency just nukes their market value. And that's a tough spot to be in when you're the player. I wonder if that becomes a bargaining chip. Like, hey, if you want extra protections in terms of players sticking around, maybe you can't be traded the first two years or whatever. We're going to need some movement here on the restrictive free agency side. Yeah. Just a guess on my part. Yeah, I think people would like to maybe see restrictive free agency retooled or gone. Maybe it's one of those where, hey, a player is restricted until X date, and then if nothing happens, but then you might have teams just wait. On your offering a player. So yeah, I think there's going to be changes coming to that process. I think the extension process. I think the whole idea of, hey, you signed an extension both on the player and team side. You're now linked together for X years of that extension. Yeah. Before we go. But that's all stuff we can get into. If and when the news ever stops and in August. All right, let's go, Monty Williams. Contract extension. Speaking of contracts, with the sons. What are we thinking about that? I mean, not unexpected, I guess.

We're still looking at the eastbound side of 66 because of course the work zones are still out there likely going to be out there for the majority of the morning here.

So if you're planning on taking the interlude with a belt away for 95 northbound from eastbound 66, you're going to need to plan ahead, plan another route one 23 is an option, so is route 7 or the dulles toll road.

Water expected to be back in capitol heights after a big sinkhole opened up on Hampton park boulevard a spokesperson for a SSC water tells WTO. Repairs are being finished up now. Water is expected to be restored late tonight, the sinkhole opened up around 8 this morning after a water main break between central avenue and Hampton mall drive north, the sinkhole itself should be fixed by early morning and nearby shopping center was impacted. Traffic and weather on the 8s over to Carlos Ramirez in the traffic center. Thanks and since we're talking about closures, let's go ahead and talk about this one in the district benning road all lanes currently closed for police activity. Then he wrote it's going to be right over the Kennedy bridge in other words if you are headed inbound near the near anacostia avenue in river terrorist park. That's where you're going to see all that police activity. You're going to want to plan ahead. You may want a different route to head into the city, east capital street is a decent choice right now, shouldn't have much trouble there. Northbound side of D.C. two 95, a little slow after Pennsylvania avenue, but no accidents, no incidents being reported there. Northbound third street tunnel, it's crowded right now, headed up towards New York avenue, but no incidents, it's just because of that light. Also, if you're headed on the inbound side of New York avenue, it's particularly crowded there between 9th street and down towards Florida avenue, Florida avenue is crowded as well, not hearing anything about crashes, but of course it is a Saturday night, might just be a little extra volume. That's okay too. It would be a little patient out there, folks. Down in Virginia, eastbound side of 66, the work zone only letting by a single left lane between one 23 and not least street past that point, remember the ramp from eastbound 66 to northbound four 95 that is to say towards the inner loop of the beltway, it's closed right now. You're going to need to plan ahead, otherwise there is a detour in place, basically you'll be told to get on the outer loop and then going to take the next exit and to come back around. It might be a little complicated. So if you're running late, you're on a timeline, you may want to plan ahead. Back in Maryland, southbound side of two 70, the works out not the works on pardon me. It's the accident scene that happened in the through lanes. It's reported that only a single lane is getting by in the through lanes, but your local lanes are available. It's going to be a little crowded through that area. Basically, you'll start to see those brake lights soon after the falls road exit. And then once you get past montrose road, you should be once again up to speed, not to worry. Periton doing that can't be done for national security because our way of life depends on it.

"You know the things that i was saying or the things that i did made the guys feel that way and it changed because it was so consistent it changed my prayer about the next job that if i were afforded that opportunity that i would get i would ask god in prayer time to give me a job that i was excited about an people that were working with us in playing flora's would be excited to come and play for us in and work for us and when you hear that about yourself from the players you love and respect The only thing you can do is change and growth and try to figure out ways that you can grow. And i'll never forget. We were in a meeting in san antonio and i would go from management meetings to coaching. Meetings are seeing pop. Gave me the opportunity of a lifetime to work in both areas. You know they gave me a title. That was way above my Anything that could have ever imagined. But for the most part was in every area of the organization and i was in a coaching meeting one day and pop said he said look. If the rule stifled talent. You need to change the rule and it was like an opinion. I thought like you know. I thought i had like me music and somebody had a heart and i was looking around the room to see if anybody caught it and nobody really had that look on their face like i did and i realized that it was for me and he wasn't talking to me but it was something that really impacted my heart and i looked at. I had a chance to look at myself and thought about the rules. And the things that i was trying to do. If those things were stifling talent than it was on me to change the not diminish the talent and. That was a moment for me. When i wasn't in a position of coaching. Certainly not as head coach that helped me to reevaluate and hopefully grow from where i was as a coach to hopefully where i'm approaching now and we're approaching now monty is people are out doing. Coaching searches this off season and what. I heard a lot of with the people hiring coaches and with candidates who were interviewing for jobs. Is we want the next monty williams. And i think it's just so ironic that the monty williams was struggling to sell monty williams for for a short period of time and these processes. I think your last when you went to philly you left san antonio and he went to philly with brett brown for a year and then it felt it changed. You were back on the bench and philly. Now you know there were multiple teams and i think you had multiple opportunities to be a head coach. You weren't looking for one offer there. Were it changed. But all of a sudden i think the league seven of the coaches hired this off season are african. American five were first. Time head coaches Just like you were coming from portland to new orleans a while ago and not just ex players but also some coaches some which i think is even more progress and maybe people don't talk about as much some young african american coaches who were not prominent ex players who became first time head coaches. Jamal moseley in orlando west until junior in washington we played at the collegiate level. Jamal played professionally. But we're not nba players. They didn't have they weren't a first round. Pick like you or or maybe a hall of famer like chauncey billups is going to be and and it felt like something's changed in the last year that that i think your success and the success of tai lue and the success of You know nate mcmillan getting another opportunity and making a great run without hawks team It shouldn't take this but but perhaps it did but it felt like it was a different day in the nba hiring circles this season. Yeah i was just grateful to see those guys get their opportunities And if you know my failures and growth. Keep those guys from making the same mistakes i've made. I'm i'm humble. That can be a part of that that process in that equation. And still you know feel like guys like sam can sell and darvin ham or guys that i'm like man. I wish those guys can get a shot Kevin young darko cabbage. You know the thing that impacted by a just want all of us to be on the same plane you know. I'm not pro african american..

"Here with monty williams. The national basketball coaches association coach of the year this past season and the coach of the western conference champion. Phoenix suns monte. How're you doing well Thanks for having me on. It's pretty cool to on your podcast. And i enjoy listening to it when i get a chance to and hopefully we can have a same conversation hard when you talk in the me. Well that that's not the case. It's funny i remember. We've we've done a couple of these. But i remember being in phoenix with you. I think there was a workout in phoenix Some kind of pre-draft workout and we were both there. And i think we taped one right when you the job and that feels like it's been one sprint blur pre pandemic. And we've all just sprinted through this i. I'm curious monte coming off the finals. And how you're supposed to feel in the aftermath and i'm guessing that you're still thinking about game six seventy seven to seventy seven tied going into that quarter. Is that like sort of the. Is that where your mind. Still say's or stays or you. Can you see the bigger picture of of the whole run or are we still too close to it. No i think you're spot on Gone back to that moment. A ton the past few weeks trying to figure out you know anything that i could have done In that moment because all you have to do is win. One quarter which is a tough task on the road against a The best team in the nba. And you go through a ton of mental gymnastics and try to figure out something you could have said or play. You could run or an adjustment and You know that that's something that will probably stay with me for a long time. But the people that i've talked to who've been in that situation When i've talked to them they you know they talk about the natural process that they'd gone through and that was a part of it. You know going back to those moments I go back to a game. Three preparation to get ready mentally emotionally for that game. Felt like a probably over thought it in regard to the preparation just because we lost. We'd have won that game. I probably wouldn't have thought about it at all but because we lost You know just ruminate about it a ton and You know the irony. Is you know we beat them. Four times in a row. They beat us for times in a row. They just did it at the right time. And you know that's something that As as a coach and as a leader Will bother me for a long time. But i think it will also drive me to be better in those moments. If i'm afforded that opportunity again monte they had jaanus playing at a level. I'm not sure we've ever seen him play. And that's says a lot given he was a two time. Mvp and all defensive player first team all nba. all the things. He's done but he certainly took it to a level in the finals. Offensively certainly defensively. He was all over the court making plays. But and i know you you you are not an excuse maker but you know chris. Paul has had wrist surgery since the season ended and he wasn't himself and he played through it. He didn't make excuses. he didn't lean on it as a crutch none of you did. But it is a factor. Isn't it it is i mean you. You'd think about all of that stuff when your emotions settle. But in the moment we've always been at least for me and i got this from tony dungy When i've listened to him and read his books you know you have to have the mindset of being no excuses no explanations of the bottom line is you have to get the job done You know people didn't know that book. was dealing with a hamstring Deal in game three and he got all kinds of flack for what he couldn't do what people didn't understand was. He was basically out there playing on one leg and those guys because they are tough in never want to rely on Excuses wouldn't say anything and that part bothered me. Because i heard all the stuff that was being said about devon chris in the finals and at the same time. I'm sure if you talk to the staff with the bucks. They would tell you that you know chris was dealing with this was dealing with this and They just happened to win. But i you know the injury piece especially the deal with chris. Wrist the that happened in the clipper series and he never made one exclusive about But that's always. He's been for a long long time. And i'm sure you know all the stuff that he heard is going to drive him in his workouts this summer. And i'm sure devon fills in the same way you mentioned preparation monte That preparation for game. Three what is it. Like as a head coach and for coaching staff to go through the gauntlet of first round conference. Semis conference finals. Nba finals the constant decisions. The little decisions you have to make on the way to the big ones. Which is i guess. It's a lot of do. We continue to stay with what we've done. What we believe in that we can execute better or do we need to veer off and maybe do it differently. There's a thousand of those decisions every day. I'm sure as a head coach. What is that. what did you learn about playoff coaching. And how you make decisions when you go through a playoff run like you did. That came within one game of winning an nba championship..

I'm most curious to see if monty williams like does anything kind of sounds too extreme but the sons. I think have been the team throughout the playoffs that have not. They've tinkered the least like you mentioned. They played their starting lineup time. They do what they do they want to dictate terms etc. If feels like every other team during the classes are we gonna play big reading a play. Small what rotation changing we're gonna make cetera et cetera. I wanna see if money williams feels the need to make a switch to figure out a new kind of way to defend the honest or is he going to be like. This is what god is here. I'm not rocking the boat at all. I mean even bud who constantly gets stubborn. Coaching be has tried so many things during this season and it feels like the sons have avoided that they've stayed above that fray. They never get called into really the adjustment. Offically every other team does during the buyout. So i'm just see if monty williams has kind of the courage to stick with the sons have been doing to a t exactly or does he start making some switches..

"Rocket mortgage studios when you need certainly the home buying process with a loan that fits your life Rocket can Jim Off this week. I'll be in today. Tomorrow before I fly to beautiful Phoenix just after the show for the NBA Finals, where I'm excited about many things, including seeing my buddy Sam Amick, one of the absolute best NBA reporters and writers in the country on Twitter, Sam underscore a Mac read him at the athletic like I do, and you can listen to him right now, because even though he's probably traveling and busy He is graciously making some time. Mr. Mm. What's up, buddy? Mr Writer. Good to hear from you, my friend. Pardon a little bit of airports, background noise and, uh I'm hanging in, brother. You can relate. I got £6 somehow relocated from my luggage in the next few minutes, So that's what I'm dealing with. Oh, my God, are you? Are you excited about the weather in Phoenix? Are you Are you? Uh, What's the plan? Do you do you? Do you wear the full suit to the game, or do you do you change at the arena? No, I mean, it's a little weird. I think the change of the arena um That being said, as you know, because we texted about it like my hotel is not by the arena. So Hopefully, the friendly uber left driver that I have is got a blaring at that works pretty well. But yeah, it's hot. I think it's about one or two today. But I can't complain too much. You know where I live? It's going to be one of five here pretty soon in the Sacramento area, so it is what it is. Say. I'm so spoiled from l A. So I mean, we got here on the show, Sam. I was thinking about the story you did, and it all bleeds together. Forgive me if I get the date wrong, but it feels like 3 to 5 weeks ago. When you got Chris Paul on the phone, and you had a pretty insightful and interesting conversation, um, based on either that conversation or just sort of your best guess work. What do you think specifically an NBA championship. What would mean to that player Given his storied career and the fact he's never even been to the finals? I mean, it would mean a great deal. What I think is cool, though, about their story and the way that his story has changed. Is the Monty Williams factor it I think you'll understand what I'm saying here is like it's added Maturity to their groups. That has, I think, actually taking some pressure off of Chris because Whether it was the Clippers or the Rockets. You know, you know as well as I do. The narrative at this time of year would become very Chris Paul centric and what good reason you know, get it. You've got a future Hall of Famer who hadn't even been to the conference finals for a long time. But It's ironic and weirdly fitting to me that like right about the time the Monty Williams comes in. This is a guy who, you know, tragically lost his wife years ago in a car accident has been through a lot, and it's always real quick to tell everybody This is just basketball. You know what I mean? Um, right about the time you have that kind of you know that kind of a grounded perspective. Chris is actually finding his way and enjoying the basketball sort of experience that has so long eluded him. So that's a long way of saying it would be meaningful, but I almost feel like It's been easier for him to move through this time and to be at his best when it mattered most, you know, perhaps because you know it's it's a little bit of a different outlook than it was before. Yeah, I mean perspective. Perspective is hard to come by and powerful when, when it comes in the form of the sort of things that Monty Williams has dealt with. We're talking to say I'm a make here on the Jim Roam show Bill Ryder filling in for for Jim. Sam. I know we don't know for sure. But just your best educated guess. To whatever degree you're comfortable that you think you're honest will or won't appear and in games 123 of the series. So I'm going to lean, you know, you know me well enough. I don't never And shot at lean on fellow colleagues reporting ahead of my own and so admittedly I haven't been around the box and I hadn't dug too hard but crusades. Yahoo Sports had put it out there two days ago. I think that It had the Bucks talk series going to seven games that Yanis would have been cleared to play. And so you know, that logic certainly would would make you feel pretty good about games one and two. In the finals, but I'm curious to hear From Yannis. Today. There's a media day in Phoenix that he'll speak at and, you know, find out how he's feeling what the latest is and and hopefully, from the honest I mean, on the other side. You had Devin Booker with this Broken nose and Chris with the shoulder and Kim Johnson got sick and All these different things I feel like after this. Post season that has been so ravaged by injuries. You know, I'm crossing my fingers that you know if if both sides are healthy, this could be a fun series in a good series. Yes, and let's let's lean into the optimism. Let's just say for the sake of argument that everybody is healthy in this series, which I think Would probably be the first series in the playoffs where that's been the case. Every Johnson just talk to us and said he thinks the songs are head and shoulders. The better team. Do you come down in the same place? Do you like Milwaukee? How would you size this thing up if Everybody is as healthy as you are expected to be at the end of a long season. I don't think I I mean, if I had to pick a team, I don't know. Honestly. I mean, the bucks are maybe my most frustrating team in the league. Just when it comes to What you think they could be, and should be versus You know the inconsistency that you see, That's the weird thing to say about a group that has played its way into the NBA Finals. You know they're obviously doing something right. But You know, the sons have at times been equally confounding for me. You know Chris Paul, listen, post coded post shoulder. He's Kind of struggled at times to find his way back. Devin Booker was a man on fire for a minute and then he cooled off. In that Clippers series. Um, you know, they have some of the same element. I think that the Bucks struggle with Just when it comes to their guys coming and going a big Chris Middleton is in that same category of guys that like man, he can be just an absolute He lead player one night and then you know, be three of 15 the next Through holidays, the same, you know, having Janet out. Recently at times has shown you can reminded you Drew holiday can be you know,.

"What Rocket can congratulations to the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul, Monty Williams and company They are going to their first NBA Finals. Since 1993, the old Charles Barkley, Dan, Morally Kevin Johnson days they're back for the first time since the early nineties in the nineties are back as well. Saved by the Bell has a reboot. Fuller house. The fresh Prince of Bel Air Reunion, Friends Reunion, the nineties are back baby, and now the Phoenix Suns are back of the NBA Finals. Just a sublime performance last night By Chris Paul. To take that game, grab it, ring it by the neck and drag it back to the Phoenix Suns. It was a game six on the road. And obviously that son's team had learned a big lesson after game number five. And Chris Paul stepped up to deliver the knockout punch 41 points last night in the victory, so Paul gets to his first NBA finals ever. The signs had 10 years of missing the playoffs of being absolutely dreck. And now they're in the NBA finals first time there in the postseason there in the NBA Finals. And Monty Williams, who I have Many, many years of respect for, But just an incredible guy. Forget a coach an incredible guy. Is going to have his moment of the big stage and He is a coach. He is a human that I just root for. Monty Williams has never had it Easy Monty when he was in college. Had a heart situation that scared him into potentially quitting basketball altogether. Came back. Overcame it overcame the fear. Went on to play a number of years of the NBA became a really well regarded assistant coach. While he was on the bench of the San Antonio Spurs. He had had a head coaching job at the Hornets. Ends up gets fired from that he's on the bench of the Spurs, and in the most tragic Scenario that you could possibly imagine the mother of his Children. His wife is involved in an accident where a drunk driver slams into her and Tragically, she passes away. So he is left without a wife and raising his daughters. And he says, I need out of basketball, my responsibilities to my family to my Children and the Spurs the outpouring of emotion from around the league and the Spurs organization and people that he had worked for and with Was overwhelming and Monte. His heart was broken. His life was ripped apart. We took years away from the game. He comes back, and now he takes over head coaching gig last year with the Sons. That kind of looks pointless. I mean, let's face it, the son's organization. Has been Nick's West. It's had terrible ownership and disastrous draft picks and awful free agent signings, and the only reason they haven't gotten more attention for their dysfunction is because They're not in a Los Angeles or New York for all of that the attention hounds to be all over it, but they've been an absolute nightmare for 10 years and Monte takes over this organization. And they immediately Become at least respectable. And we're thinking Devin Booker's career is going to be wasted in the desert, and last year they get to the bubble. And they just rip off eight straight victories. They missed the postseason, but they acquitted themselves incredibly well, And that's the start of the building of this culture. And now you fast forward one year later, and he has them all. Believing. And committing and learning and now in the NBA Finals, and of course, the addition of Jae Crowder is a huge part of that. Chris Paul's an enormous part of that, but Monty Williams Is doing something that who could have ever seen the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals? It is extraordinary. It is extraordinary and After their game five loss, he said. We showed up. And that's on us, and we can't be a show up team And then last night, they didn't just show up. Last night. They competed. They watched Chris Paul, their leader, have this incredible second half. And then surged to the victory behind 41 points from CP three. Just a wonderful sports story, a wonderful story for the city of of Phoenix. The state of Arizona sports Wise and just in general to watch CP three get rewarded, and to watch Monty Williams be the leader and to be validated, and to be rewarded is just such a cool thing. On the flip side week to see how the Eastern Conference Finals wrap up tonight is Game number five who ends up winning two out of the next three games. Janice, There is some good news if you're a box fan. If you were hoping for a sliver of hope you got it yesterday. When Yanis went down in a heap the other night. My heart sank. My stomach felt ill. Because Yonas has done everything the right way. Were the Brooklyn Nets hamstrung where the Brooklyn Nets compromise of the second round. Absolutely. I would certainly not deny that, but we got into it yesterday. Because I felt as though more as was unwilling. To give any credit to the bucks for winning that series. And no doubt it's a different series of Kyrie plays, and James Harden's fully healthy, no doubt. But I believe also in giving credit to the teams that actually get it done, and that After a win is not the time to trash a team because it's so hard to win at any level of professional sports. So for the Bucks to get to the Eastern Conference finals and for ya honest again, a guy that does everything right? He's a great teammate. He points, no fingers. He doesn't complain of the media. He's not constantly looking for more talent or to be traded or a new coach. My heart sank when I saw him go down. Because this is a guy that just always believes in the power of positive thought and will work and will get there and I believe we will get there and so To see it robbed from him. When that's not his fault, he goes up to challenge an alley oop and comes down just awkwardly. I mean, really gruesomely awkward. Was awful..

"Today. Meanwhile, the school Tom Thibodeau won coach of the year yesterday. Congratulations to Tibbs again. He's a friend. Um, he came and worked here at ESPN. He was a regular on get up for Was it two seasons? How long was he with us? It was 1.5. Right? Because I I think was he let go. He was with us for quite a while. He did. He did at least a couple dozen chose. Yeah, He was with us a lot older, the playoff run of 2019, and he's an excellent analyst and a good guy, and I thought deserving, but what I will say is, he just sort of edged out Monty Williams and I did see some complaining. On Twitter last night that Monty Williams accomplishment this year was greater than what Tom Thibodeau did, and that if Monty Williams had done what he did in New York rather than Phoenix, That he would have won coach of the year to which I reply. Yeah. Exactly. The Knicks have been so bad for so long. People forget how favorably people talk about them. I remember this vividly because I was covering the visiting team. I was covering the Bulls when they were going up against the Knicks in the nineties and all of the conversation about how the Knicks get favorable treatment. Get all the attention. Get all this. That and the other and yes, that's right. It is actually underscores why it is so unimaginable and disgraceful. They've been so bad for so long because they have so many built in advantages. People in this town are still talking about the Knicks. Now they've been had for a week, the next just one by 40 points. People are talking about the Knicks. That's who the Knicks are. So if you're complaining that the Nixon and their coach got special attention, because he coaches the next well, just where have you been? I guess the reality is you haven't been around a team that mattered in 20 years that that really is what that told me. When I was reading those because if this had happened 20 years ago, wouldn't have even been discussed, and no one would have said a word. Of course, the coach of the Knicks got coaching here. It's not even worth talking about. It was either the guy in New York are the guy coaching the Phoenix Suns. I mean, these things aren't that complicated doesn't make them right. They just are not everything that is, is right. Lots of things are and are wrong. This is it is, it doesn't make any difference if it's right or not. So that's what happened last night. I was watching that yesterday. He's You know, The other thing about Tibbs is he was fun last night with those guys I was watching. He was on the Did you see it? The pre game with him and Barkley and Ernie and all those guys, you know, he's lightened up a little. He's laughs a little bit. You know, he's the most intense person you'll ever meet. He is a very intense person, but I do think he's lightened up a little bit, and it was nice to see him like that. This year was kind to him. It's also worth reminding fans that this is merely a regular season a war. There's some Recency bias here because the Knicks, the not advanced The funds did, But that's a big part of this, too. Like the Sun's winning in the first round in advancing past, the Lakers or people are thinking, just like any time you'll see like Johannes wins the MVP award. They get knocked out early in the playoffs, and people freak out. That's not how it works. Right? Right. It is a regular season award. Even though I've never been convinced that should be I have. I've taken this position before. That the NBA is a sport that is so postseason dominant now. Where the post season is so much more important than the regular season. And I think this is a terrible thing terrible. No one seems to be able to do enough about it. I give Adam credit. He's trying. He tried with the postseason play in tournament and I believe he'll try other things. Look, Let's just talk Turkey here, okay? If you love then it's good for you. God bless you. Your team is great. But the bottom line of it is this. The Nets just absolutely dismissed the regular season. They just did. He acted as though it doesn't matter..

The Glamorous Lakers' Unlikely Leader
"So Kevin. In spite of being blown out the other day in Boston the Lakers are still the number one seed in the West and everything is sunshine and rapes around the staple center but a year ago. It felt like there was a storm cloud hanging over the franchise. I had magic Johnson. President Basketball Operations nations stepping down team fired their head coach. Luke Walton and then they chose Frank Vogel as his replacement awesome and there was a perception around here in Los Angeles that it was a pretty uninspired choice right in some ways frank. Vogel is the Ultimate Safety School. So for the Los Angeles Lakers Kevin Arnovitz is an NBA insider for ESPN. They went after Monty Williams former player who has immense amount of respect but at the end of the day he got a much more appealing offer from the Phoenix Suns. Tai Lue was a top choice. Lebron's former coach NBA Championship. Cleveland Cavaliers in two thousand sixteen. And what are the Lakers. Do they offer him a contract that I think it's fair to say was. Maybe not befitting a championship coach. There's sort of a standard now for for what a NBA coach gets in terms of the years in terms of money and this particular contract offer fell far short of that to the point where I think the public certainly the perception within the League was here of the Lakers doing it again. They think they're the Lakers. They have this golden or around them they can just offer championship. Coach is his deals. That don't reflect that pedigree so they don't get money Williams tyler walks not for another job. He just walks and they get Vogel. I used to do a lot of L. A.. Sports Radio and I remember this announcement very vividly. Los Angeles Lakers fans. They were not happy. Happy Kevin in fact they were furious. Vogel I think at the outset was seen as an odd choice for a number of reasons. One one is. The Lakers are the Lakers. And they have traditionally gone after coaches. That are either real brand names or have this royal. LAKER occur bloodline they are part of the Laker family. So here comes Vogel who is coming off. Two year stint in Orlando where he lost twice as many games as he won one could say no fault of his own. It was it was a young mismatch roster of players. But he doesn't have a brand name he looks like an accountant announced he's never played in the NBA before so he doesn't bring with him. The story playing career so for a fan base and a franchise. That's always been very brand obsessed. Why are you getting this off? Brand coach was very much. I think the perception an off Branko. Now I'm imagining frank. Vogel at the Grocery store he's like the generic. I Love Kirkland. I I think that sets up this story very well because you great value. Oh you use the Kirkland of coaches and of course. The Lakers are widely perceived as his ex hyper glamorous NBA franchise in particular with Lebron James. They're going into an off season in which they're going to be trying to get free agents. This is before the trade for Anthony Davis and here comes maybe the least glamorous coach forget fans for a second just people inside the game fifteen choices of who is going to be. The next Lakers head coach. I don't I don't know that Frank Vogel would have been on one ballot. I'm not saying Bogle can't coach Lebron's right that's different. So how did he get start. Frank Vogel got his start by by being a pest he was division three point guard for a genie out of college and he became obsessed with Kentucky basketball when he was at home on winter. Break when you're watching that famous Duke Kentucky lightning later catches He decides I want to be part a big time college basketball. He's going to leave his division three school. He writes letters to the staff at Kentucky including Rick Pitino and they basically send back a form letter. Thank you for your interest. This is in the mid nineties so he decides. I'm just going to drop out of my college enroll at Kentucky. I'm GONNA drive there. Basically without an invitation nation. And I'm just going to hang around the facility. Whatever anything I can do to get inside volunteer? Whatever they need and little by little sure enough he hangs around enough due to the point? Where Jim O'Brien who was assistant to Rick Pitino said Okay Okay? We'll we have the video room. which at the time video rooms have become like the very sexy place to get your start as a coach? Now Erik Spoelstra Mike Putin Holzer Dave Fidel but back then it was still kind of a newish thing and so he just camped out in the video room and essentially became one of the best young video coordinators in all of basketball and to the point when when Pitino went to the Celtics they ultimately brought. Frank Vogel Oh go along with them. And then when O'Brien took over he promoted him again and so little by little. He's sort of the He's the kind of the little engine that could of basketball. So he dollars. O'Brien to Indianapolis. And that's where he gets his first shot as head coach. How does that go right? He gets to the Fr- what we call. The Front of the bench comes a top assistant in an Indiana Under Jim O'Brien O'Brien gets fired and Vogel's the next Guy Up Larry Bird actually ask Joe. Brian looked this. Guy's really loyal to you.

Monty Williams the Suns' Top Target for Coach - Where does that leave the Lakers?
"Williams manned up going to Phoenix. Which would which would now put the Lakers coaching search back at three if kids in the mix, it would be either Tyronn Lue whose scheduled interview again tomorrow Juwan Howard who scheduled interview later in the week or kid if Monte goes to Phoenix or as Greg suggested he could also get the job in Philadelphia if they fire Brett Brown, but it appears Brett Brown is on the verge of getting them to the. Second round, by the way to let's not bury the lead on something. This interview was conducted by rob Pelinka and Kurt Rambus, which would lead you. I've been telling people is that who's do. I I understand that. But I'm saying it leads you to believe that part of this. Vacuum isn't just being taken up the power. Vacuum isn't just being sucked up by rob Pelinka. Kurt Rambis is putting himself in a position to gain more power. Well, I think it's already there. However, you want to phrase it it's been reported. And I, you know, a full disclosure here. Kurt's a neighbor of mine, I know him I like them. Occurred Kurt started traveling with us in the middle of the season. Just to be basically an observer. Well, I mean he was brought on as I forget the exact title by magic. I think it was last year like a basketball L salt because something like that like it or not the Lakers are a family business. The Lakers in US have this comment. Yes, they do. They they USC hires Trojans because they think Trojans will get we'll get there say something as an alum. I don't like it. Yeah. And what the Lakers are cutting a page out of that. I mean, if you want to really find the connective tissue. Dr bus was a Trojan there you go. But I think so I think you're going to hear Kurtz name a lot. I think Kurtz going to be around giving Jeannie trust him. And he's going to be giving nothing personal against Kurt. This is not how I do it. I think they are making a real mistake that insulate I just mean the tendency towards installation right there making a real mistake. But okay, so Kurt Rambis, and rob Pelinka interviewed Jason Kidd yesterday doesn't this prove that I'm right in Mason's wrong. That there is no shadow console. No, she does this. Honestly does this team? So far seem organized enough to pull off the shadow GM thing with women talking about that that would be an incredibly hard thing in this day and age to even orchestrate no I mean, I would love to feel confident enough in the Lakers that they could actually pull off the shadow GM very hard to do. Yeah. I don't feel. They can do it hard to do.

Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent.

If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it.

Daily news reporter, Greg Smith says Patten has little authority to pursue the case herself. She has almost nothing to do with this.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
