"It's all good. Have a problem with players like I said that I have too much power. Meaning LeBron. I'm a Lakers from originally from California, My Lakers fan. I just don't like the way LeBron has Made the game he turned it into. Ah, let's join All team up like the Justice League to win a ring. I think it's I mean, I think it's a bad situation. You know, I don't like when teams competed, there's more competitive like nowadays, the LeBron era You just don't have enjoyed basketball no more and I love basketball. Is that is that a LeBron issue is that not more of a of a financial issue? Well, every specter every player I've loved every player that come out about the years. I've never hated anyone or dislike a player like I like I do. LeBron just don't like the way he made the game into like No but my question, But this is what I'm saying. LeBron didn't wake up and and invent. You know, free agency LeBron James. He's not the first guy here to just say Okay, I'm just gonna run around. He's one of the first guys to have the opportunity to do so. So I mean, if we if we were if we had the same rules, and we were able to to say that X Y Z player can switch teams come on. We had a whole documentary here, basically with two hours almost dedicated to Scottie Pippen and how unhappy he was with his contract. That's not to say that study. Pippen was not gonna wake up one day and say, You know what? Screw this. Send me over to the New York Knicks, You know, with the way the salary cap has increased the way that the NBA Players association was able to negotiate the contracts This is what has happened, so I don't want to pin it on LeBron James because past generations they weren't able to do it at all. Well for it. Well, Yeah, I get that. That's my point is that they allow only him. What other polarities? She's able to do that. No, no, no, no, no, no, that's that's not that's that's not free. That's not fair, Alfred. We can pin it on this man came into the league. In 2000 and three. It's crazy to say Here we are in 2020 and LeBron James has exceeded expectations. He came into the league in 2000 and three We were talking about player contracts in that space of here is a 56 year deal for $100 Million players are now almost making half of that. In one year, So there's there's a difference, so it is not fair to say that this is LeBron. He's the only one doing it. There was a team recently called the Golden State Warriors, and because of how much money that the NBA as a league made it because of the great management. Of the Warriors that they were able to add. Ah, Kevin Durant, So I just don't think it's fair to say of this is LeBron. This is LeBron era. He started it. He set the table. He was one of the first guys that was able to do it, if anything, and thank you, Alfred for calling from Arizona. Why not? He's one of the human beings. If you want to take that approach. He's one of the players. That helped usher in this Ara moving towards social media that helped carry the torch off popularity along with him. And and also the late, great Kobe Bryant. He was one of the guys that help move this along for these players to have so much money. That's fax. So if you want to take the approach of this is what LeBron James started. Well, is this not what any MBA player like LeBron deserves? He doesn't get the money that he deserves as a basketball player. Granted. He's gonna be a billionaire. One day with everything that he has going on. God bless him. But when you want to talk about his value to the MBA, and what his basketball contract this come on, LeBron makes $40 million in a free range open market. LeBron would be making way more than that. The Lakers will be paying a whole lot more. We got more calls coming, and I'm gonna take him. Goodness gracious. This is a topic your care about it. I'm gonna.

"And I'll tell you this and thank you coolly for calling from from Alabama. I'll tell you this. I have seen Kevin Durant. Who I find to be one of the best scorers in the embassy in NBA history. You want to talk about love for the game? I have seen Kevin Durant with no fanfare. I've seen Kevin Durant pick up a basketball and just ball out in Harlem, New York, I have seen Kevin Durant just bawling out. In a gym in the South Bronx, New York City amongst the end in the poorest congressional district in the United States of America. Kevin Durant is just bawling out. I've seen it, okay. And so you want to talk about love for the game? There are a lot of these star players that you watch. You want to talk about love for the game? They don't get to where they're at unless they love the game. And God bless them that they can go ahead and make money while they're doing it. Isn't this what we all want? I mean, we have We have had players that have come in and you can. You can probably think of one players who come in who don't love the game and do it strictly for money. I mean, I don't want to. I'm not going to just shout guys out. But a lot of these dudes. It's just like, OK, you are purely big. You're 7 ft. Tall. You're athletic. You're just taking a check is like, okay, I can't do this. I don't necessarily love that. It's no different than ah, lot of us How many of us can legitimately say Hey, I love what I do. How many of us do it out of necessity. That doesn't change professional athletes. There's a lot of guys who do it because they can not because they love it. And Tyler's calling up from Pittsburgh. Tyler you want CBS Sports Radio? Hey, A J. How you doing? I'm good. Go ahead. I do believe that the players just now started getting the power they deserve. I do believe you know as known or you're putting the money up. You know you're taking the risk that you know, obviously, you should make the most money. If the owners are gonna make billions, I think nothing wrong with the best players in the league, making a couple 100 million throughout their career. I should nothing wrong with that. I mean, I think the best way for capitalism the words Is it? You know, everybody gets paid. As if you know everything works out fairly as it should, you know? Yeah, I look, I don't I don't have no problem with how they split the money. I think this is just we're moving and have moved into Different era. We're seeing something that people aren't used to seeing the players before amount of time. And thank you Tyler for calling from Pittsburgh. For a long time, The players had no choice. It's like we own your rights. You here with us. There's no free agency. There's no you going here. This is okay. The military called you Okay? Come on back. That's it's really that cut and dry. It's really that simple. So what we're seeing is a shift. And I think this is this is going to be the norm. And so how the MBA adjusts some of the salary rules and what you can offer up contract wise and the length etcetera. That's TBD. The MBA has certainly tried to implement rules. And I don't think anybody could have expected that all of a sudden the revenue that the MBA would generate what would multiply in double and billions in the amount of time that it has Alford is calling up from Arizona. Alfred, You want CBS Sports Radio, The J. R Sport brief show. Yeah, I don't know. Problem with them getting their money. It's all good.

"R Sport brief. I retweeted the question as well. And let's go ahead and get on this phone lines. Let's start off in New Orleans and talk to John John, You want CBS Sports radio. Do you feel that the NBA players just kind of garnish and hold too much power? Yup. Straight up. We would share mostly Jr Respect. Allow what you're saying that a lot of Ella points But as far as Anthony Davis, man, I can't speak for the whole city. But I'm gonna say about 75% of the city. We like How? Anthony Davis? Well, all right now granted, He stayed with us for a good while. I blame most of it on Del dumps. Very, very poor management. And we would've had Griffin would Davis Davis was will probably still be with the pelicans, but I'll take Diana the I'm cool with that. My thing is, is that Um, where's the commitment it you know, it was like, Oh, I don't want a sandwich of this year. I'm gonna go somewhere else. Oh, I don't know the playoffs this year. I'm gonna go somewhere else. Just like where's the commitment you lost? We just signed a one year deal. You know what I mean? So Then you're talking about a small walking like New Orleans who barely has any, please. We only got TV time this year because his eye on all the way up and coming Even when we had that Davis what is like Look at your holiday. Did you know he we loved to holiday and we're gonna miss him it just the way that he did it. It was right before the also but I don't know if you remember we was like, Oh, we want eight out of 11 and then Bam! He hits us with this news and we just lose like the next 23 out of 30 or something like that came and became an uncomfortable situation. I understand that Now, having said that What about the I would always venture to say it zah about management? No. Definitely feel girl dumps. It has a lot to do with Why that I mean the way that he managed the team for 70 years was very right report and I blame most of it on him. What I'm saying is the overall I get it. You are. They got a voice and I'm all for it, man Like they earn it. You know they especially as a black man in America. I love to see that. Was like man with some commitment to that not to the owners. It's of the city to those people that help you, You know, Cook your luncheon and in the facility like just those people like We love actually, David's man, we We really did. We wanted him to retire The pelican. Well, John and thank you for calling from New Orleans. I understand what you're saying. That is, That's his hard core from a fan's perspective. As as you're gonna get, But where's the Where's the loyalty? I mean, at the end of the day? You can. This is this is a business just flat. Period. It is a business. You want to talk about these young men who get drafted and this is this is all part of the process. You know, I can't The guys don't go into the league saying all well, and if you have if you got enough stroke You can, but for the most part, they don't dictate where they go. They get pushed through a meat grinder. Almost all of the players unless you are extraordinary. You don't have an opportunity to pick where you go. You don't pretty much have say so in it. You're in a city, you know, not every player and and let's talk about this. Not every player is a superstar. Okay, Not everybody is LeBron and James Harden. You know, we're not gonna wake up tomorrow and hear how you know Austin rivers. Maybe not the best example because he just signed a contract. But we're not going to hear Austin rivers say Hey, Trade me. We're not gonna hear that. You know, I'm not going to go down to. Ah, you know Orlando, and I'm not going to hear from. Let's try to think of Ah Mo Bomba. More bomb was not gonna wake up and say You know what? I'm sick of Mickey Mouse. I'm sick. A Disney world. I'm sick of his damn magic kingdom. Get my ass out of here. Does. He doesn't have the leverage. And that's the majority of athletes and professional sports, not everybody's at the top of the food chain. Devika He's calling up from Why Devika you want CBS Sports Radio, The J R Sport Brief show. Yeah, yeah, You know, I I disagree with you. There needs to be a lot there needs to be more parity in the N b m e who want to see the heat? The Celtics. The Lakers the same things every year when I'm originally from Milwaukee. And you know, I I believe the league Route up that that Bob didn't deal. I mean, tampering that they do that every day. I believe Adam Silver wants stuff. The big market team right? Probably more money. For the league. It is it is more TV Milwaukee Get a chip. I want to see ya. Honest. I mean, I want to see it. Leave a legacy in Milwaukee. You know, he conducive it there, but I mean, all this collusion and you know the big name players, luring other people and, uh I mean, come on. What? What? You're what you're saying is true. You said Yeah. If no one is going to admit it, it bulls down. So what I just said, if we have a finals matchup Okay? And and this is not Chris Webber to Vlad a D box to white chocolate. But in a typical sense, a sacramental versus Milwaukee. In the finals, even it let's take it back to 20 years ago. You know, Sacramento versus Big dog, Glenn Robinson. If that was our finals matchup, you know about 20 years ago. That's not necessarily gonna move the needle when the NBA Finals come on, Quote unquote, ABC. It's not gonna look all that hot, so obviously, yes, they are business dealings. But that's not to discount what the MBA has tried to do in regards to parody. Every team has a salary floor. Every team has a salary ceiling. There's obviously a luxury tax that is also involved and what we have seen is, you know these players are making enough money now. It's saying I want to sacrifice 40 or $50 million. They found a way to circumvent it and they're saying, Hey, I want to be traded, so I can still get that big contract and they hold the teams up. They stick him up basically. And I mean, what can we do about parity? Is this really any different than anything else that goes on in the country? Any other business? You know, Look it. Look, look at the NFL The Green Bay. You know how small Green Bay's they seem to be doing all right. Maybe they need to change things you know, are politically It's that is extremely difficult. Because the NFL in this is this is this is the difference. If you take a look at the NBA Players Association, the players and and thank you convicted for calling up from Hawaii. The players are for the most part in lock step. With what they do. They have a strong executive director in Michele Roberts. They have AH, strong player unity overall as to their approach to the owners. If you take a look at the NFL, the NFL Players Association. For the most part, the players will tell you we feel that we give up too much to the owners. And the NFL is a different animal. You step out onto the NFL feel there's a good chance your career can be done with one play in the NFL certainly treats the players like that. There. No guaranteed contracts. You got to get all your money up front. It is a different animal when it comes down to how you can go about having parody. And so, yes, the NFL has done a better job because it's basically a meat grinder. The players don't necessarily have those same type of rights. I mean, we have retired players who just just feel like they're out on the street. So I don't think it is. Ah, it's a natural comparison to say, Well, how can we get the same type of parity in the NBA that we have in the NFL? I think it's apples to oranges. I'm gonna continue taking your calls 855 to 1 to four CBS your thoughts on NBA players having too much power. But right now on CBS Sports Radio, It's time for new splash Here is Bob Buesseler. See me? Yes. Sports sports flag. All right, J R. There was never any.

You were starting something for the next generation and the next generation to take over you have to be smart. Yes. Do you have to make sure that you have a plan. Yes. Do you have to be articulate about that plan? Yes. All of those things but that's what you're going to do. They're professionals they know how to be the best of themselves.

Daniel Berger won the PGA colonial championship in sudden death yesterday Denny Hamlin won the NASCAR Cup race in homestead and phase three for western New York begins tomorrow of note phase three would include limited indoor dining for restaurants those your headlines next update coming up at eight o'clock eight old three oh five fifty to join us to get the running backs in a moment Alan buffalo you're on WG Arbor right ahead morning guys years automotive Josh's completion percentage and and all that and I got me I kind of think you look a little bit like like Breitbart number apart in a legal that martyr I got blessed Rosten him but if you look at some of the steps I mean some of his better years he had but one more completion percentages I I kind of feel like like that the strong arm it is part of the reason but but I think if if you just keep running up he might become become comparable or even a little bit hold on hold on hold on just let me stop you there because I agree with you has a lot of Brett Farr treats there's no doubt I think that that's a very good like the DNA part of him is rock farm I just want to caution anybody ever to never make quarterbacks at the circle comparisons to players who played back in the eighties and nineties or even early two thousands the game is so different Jim Kelly had was not a was he would not have a good he would be a horrible completion percentage guy now but yet he was like top four five in the league pretty much with what he did I'll give an example what I mean and I'm sorry what's the caller's name Howard al out so give an example L. you're talking about Brett far let me look at Brett fires completion percentage over the years here I just want to take a look at it here I can't find its completion percentage where he actually ranked but anyway his completion percentage right farmers you know back in the day I look at where exactly what he did he was fifty nine fifty nine sixty three fifty seven look sixty three percent in nineteen ninety eight led the league al I mean like it is much as I agree with you that he has a lot of those traits I would just tell you do not use people who play back then as a statistical comparison it is just so different now sixty three percent today is pretty bad sixty three percent rate far played lead the league no he hung up sorry I sorry I was trying I was hoping to have a discussion yeah yeah it's yeah hung up I was looking at Kelly's numbers and in the heyday of the I mean the two I think the I'm trying to think the two biggest years weather is ninety and ninety one or ninety one to ninety two but anyway in nineteen ninety Kelly hit for sixty three percent sixty four percent in ninety two which was of course a Superbowl year fifty eight percent and then sixty one percent in ninety three so you know again it's it's it is it's less about I think it's less about completion percentage more about what kind of plays are they making what kind of throws are they making right what kind of chances is all are is is Josh Allen capitalizing on with what we believe are the best weapons bills quarterback has had around here in about a quarter of a century what was Josh's completion percentage last year exactly do remember I got a look at other yeah I got let me just look at I can look at it what I want to go to factor I can look at that I do by the way just so you know I could look it up but I want to fifty eight point eight okay fifty eight point eight from fifty two point eight is rookie year okay a fifty eight point eight all right in nineteen ninety seven I was looking I I chose a year here because far had something kind of close to that he had a fifty nine point three so he will pass completion percentage I'm still trying to find exactly here we go I got it all right so nineteen ninety seven fifty eight point eight you said yep in nineteen ninety seven that would've been good for tenth in the NFL think about that yeah and he would have been last year he would have been what thirtieth whatever's next please president night they were gonna head of Dan Marino is fifty eight point two mmhm so I mean if you had last year he was dead last basically so I mean you just can't I I caution anyone to to just never use any quarterbacks statistics from back then to compare but if you want to talk about their game I do agree with al like he has a lot of Brett Farr similarities in traits in one of the things I always say about Brett farb which I think will be saying about Josh's no matter how long Brett Farr played I mean he was you know he played a long long time he won a Super Bowl he is now in the hall of fame we were still saying even you know sixteen seventeen years in a Bret first career boy why is he making that throw that what a dumb decision that was it and you know and I think we're gonna be doing the same thing on some level with Josh through his whole career work we're gonna be sitting here some day some morning after a game how would you be like boy I can't believe Josh the ten year veteran made that decision because that's just who he is sometimes yeah but you'd lip with the fewer for skews me if you're a Packers fans you live with that because you know what most of the time he won the game you know I mean there would be either head scratching throws in the game or even if he had a bad day any for some thrills and they lost the game at the end of the year they do end up with ten eleven twelve wins whatever it was to be in the playoffs they be contending for a Super Bowl and he'd throw for you know twenty five try to look at is Green Bay numbers they didn't have like it's not like you have like forty touchdowns he had some thirty touchdown years yet some twenty touched on yours but you didn't worry as much about his picks because they were winning football games what is touched on interstate twenty you look at if you look at farmers numbers some of his touchdown interception ratio is not the beginning of his Packers career but as you went five six plus years into it twenty and sixteen one year twenty and twenty nine one year eighteen eighteen twenty two and twenty two with the jets there were some years we didn't have a two to one touchdown interception ratio but eleven wins thirteen wins thirteen with eleven wins twelve once you get all these double digit win seasons he's throwing.

I Don I bic La to make it past Connecticut so but no but they didn't know that Ah I mean I think as a player as a as a player I think that you don't say that out loud you may say it on the court and you may talk to you you know like the teams but saying it you know in the media is always smart 'cause they just give you know like fuel to the other team I think you have to be smart with your trash talking but as a fan I'm enjoying it so much more exciting so I'm I'm here for it I just feel bad that jasmine had to arrest that at this point like they've already won two games in the finals or going to a game five she's still talking about people thinking that they were GonNa roll over like I seen that but I get what you're saying about the role players commentary go which okay that's fine but they've been doing a lot more out here than that it's brilliant it's entertaining I just get worried we're people start doing too much happened because I know what that does the other team you know what I mean like Liz campaigns now knows what that does to the other team like you just need to you need to stay humble because it was dying to Rasi they had to shut Courtney Williams down two years in a row because she got a little bit out of pocket and I love Corny I've covered her since her US days I think she is great for the game I'm loving all the coverage of her and her dad is like dream dad right like he is down he is like supporters aw I'm all here for this to be real careful in this league honey because people never forgets no and you're gonna hear about it later so they better back then yeah you sure will and with that let's talk about let's go into our first quarter so we can talk about something and I'm Connecticut WanNa forget this quarter An- that is game three they wanNA forget that because they latorre L- game three on on Sun a Sunday so just like a quick recap on that so that we can get into what was a phenomenal game for Connecticut Lost Ninety four eighty one on Sunday they look like a very different team I'm just the game before John Clo- Jones had a stellar performance thirty two and eighteen but Sunday came around the MVP returned for one. Washington didn't really look I thought she looked stiff personally didn't think that she moved very well but it Kinda didn't matter she still finished with thirteen points six board she's still played twenty six minutes and whether you've got her for ten percent or one hundred percent you still got a garter you still got to worry about her she's still going to impact Act anybody that is going to have to face her so with that Connecticut was looking at a losing home court or had lost court advantage heading in to gain four they were down in the series two one but last night was a tale of two teams they started the game out firing on cylinders I mean they put together quite a first half performance on they led by as much as eighteen points they were up fifty six to forty at the half and so four we go into the second half of of how that game turned out I'm right after the halftime I'm sorry right before Halftime me Williams actually stopped for a moment to chat with our Holly Rowe and she spoke a little bit about why her team was so energized etiquette game five Thursday Courtney Williams doing her best to make that happen holly according to your defensive commitment is completely different tonight why did you change what did I tell you gotTa Win I you know I was a little bit off last game all back against the wall can't take no plays off you already got more is confidence and guess what she has the game back it up 'cause she doesn't need a screen she don't need anybody step up and do anything for her she could go get shots what she wants them now I thought we were talking about three looks like we're talking about gay four now yeah we're not gonNA spend too much time on game three that's because one we are limited on our time on this podcast right now and number two because Connecticut Connecticut Fan so we're moving fast at eight Dave I'll let you start which you think I thought in game force initially I mean Connecticut had great energy and you clearly saw that this was a deciding game and they do that and that's how they came out and they came out ready and but I also felt like DC they didn't look like themselves in the first half they're known for moving the ball really well in and getting good shots making the right pass and it felt like in the first half they were playing hon of one on one and not moving like they do in making extra passes and it showed because they weren't getting shot and when you're playing a team Connecticut who's great in transition you have to be able to put the ball in the basket and slow them down so I felt like you know Connecticut was able to really do what they wanted to do in the first half but then being a vet- team DC came back out in the second half and just knew what they have to do in turn the tables and we're able to

He probably didn't wanna wait to go into training camp at the end of the season to take a chance on finding out. They put the money in front of him. So he took that's got to be said, wait, what was the number four years forty one million ten year? I know I'm just trying to think same years same draft classes, my nephew little higher pick them on their few believe he went probably five or so slob outperformed. I understand that. So they gave him forty one. She's I can only imagine what he was getting ready to do you notice when a Beckham was out which was the majority of last year. He did. Okay. Right. I mean shepherd. He's a slot guy. Man. It's fine. It's fine. To me. That's got to be really hard decision for the idea of. Okay. Look here. Here's forty one million dollars or I can maybe wait and maybe get a little bit more. When I haven't made that much money in my career. I was a second round pick up probably average a million dollars million change a year. Right. The end of the day. You look at it. And you go, oh, I got X in the Bank can have and a Bank. I rather, you know, go with the second versus the first all right next one back to basketball, the NBA and the NBA players association. They're discussing putting an end to the one and done take it or shake at the one and done college player. I would take it taking take. I'd like I like to I like him straight from high school are like the one and done. I like for an athlete I like for an athlete to be able to make it to citizen in his life. When he needs to start earning money, whether it's a team sport. And individual sport, we go through this conversation all the time. They could do it overseas. They can play tennis. They could play golf. They get make money can still go to college college students could get jobs in work and do all sorts of things. So when a guy's ready to play it make money is time for him to go. Yeah. I mean, I if he's ready to do what he's ready to do if he's ready to take the shot and take the chance who's anyway. To tell them. No. It's so interesting who's the golfer believe he went to the university of Georgia was one and done and major. Okay. Gotcha. Air Manas galled. They're talking about Matt Kuchar. There have been more than there's been more than enough examples in the sport of golf in which a young man goes plays really well, his freshman year, and then goes out on tour and next, you know, he's even contention or wins, a major any celebrated and no one ever mentions that he was a one indict here. Here's an fan. No worry about that, bro. It's a little personal to me because it was the sport that I played. But the college baseball situation seems to make the most sense to me the best of both worlds. The idea of if you get drafted out of high school go play if you wanna go play go play if you aren't quite sure you can go to junior college and get drafted again after junior college and go, but if you go to a four year university, I get you for three years. Yeah. Seattle like why not because if I decide to go to university, I wanna make my decision to leave and make money. What I want to go to junior college. I want to go to college. I want to go to USC and I wanna play, but I only wanna play there for year..
ReadyUp is Connecting the Esports and Gaming Community
"Youth sports is a fancy word for gaming, which is a fancier word for video games. But please put away your preconceived notion or stereotypes of what you think video games because the budding business is raking in millions Rodrick lamantia is a serial entrepreneur in media startups. He was part of an entertainment that was sold to news corps for six hundred fifty million dollars back in two thousand five but recently alimony has turned his attention to the east sports world. He's partnered with some of the legends and gaming to create ready up ready up as a platform that connects gamers at all levels of play alimony and ready up are betting big on east sports this past fall. They raised two million in capital tonight. A conversation about the future of sports east sports Rodrick alimony is in town for the world conference. He's my guest in studio Rodrick, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. First of all you were at the conference. And all of it was about transforming the world. I think that the thread was blurred. Correct. You spoke at the conference. What did you tell people? Yeah. Well, we were talking about partnerships and experiences one of the things that we're doing it ready up is we've partnered with the NBA players association and one of the experiences that were in the process of executing shortly his for fans to be able to engage some of the top NBA stars who are huge gamers and essentially connect with them through through game. I can't even believe that that would be. I just flashed back to me being fifteen years old and thinking, I could play Glen Rice. Glad right. It's that's crazy. That is the future this opportunity to do all these different experiences with real people in a virtual world was interesting about the process. We connected with the MVP a in July or August of last year. And we had a really great conversation with Michelle Roberts. He's the executive director of her coach was we realize gaming wasn't gonna be the pet rock that was here to stay thinks that ninety nine percent of the basketball players play video games. And a funny story, she told us she was out with some of the night, and after dinner, she was telling them mail, you guys. Go home don't get into trouble. And she said we guy's gonna do. And they said we're going to go we're gonna do some fortnight. And she said, where's that club? Located. Fortnight leads us a good place to start because east sports has has been on the forefront of of our culture for the last couple of decades now, but fortnight has brought it to a new level. You're starting to see it permeate culture in a way that it's like you said, it's no longer the pet rocket is the rock. Do you need games? Like fortnight and experiences like that that come along to get the business of east sports into a higher level of visibility. Fortnight was great for the industry on a couple levels. One of the interesting things about fortnight was you actually saw a lot of girls and women playing it. But actually more girls I'd say at the high school level traditionally video games as being focused on, you know, males eighteen to thirty four. This was a really interesting crossover. At least in the kind of the more hardcore concerned more hardcore gaming side of the business. When you look at mobile games there. Obviously massively populated by women games like candy crush inside. But this was a game. Yeah. And what he why why what is it about fortnight from your estimated that that made it so popular. Well, you know, it was kind of the combination of Minecraft meets I came called div, which was the first really popular battle royale that kind of came more mass market the growth curve on both of these games was tremendous. I mean, literally zero to several tens of millions of users in a very short period of time. Perfect example fortnight the next game that came along Gwen called apex legends. Which is another battle royale published by EA that believe they went from zero to forty million in literally weeks as opposed to month. So it's amazing. The think about the victory right now. And you as someone who reading your background, you got your starting starting media startups. How do you get from there to east sports? I've been kind of working in startup since nineteen ninety five I was working at an ad agency on the media side. It's a really fun story. We had Microsoft is account and literally with. Public eight months before windows ninety five launch. I remember that you're old enough to remember the windows lunch was huge. They needed a an online planned back then online met getting online through or prodigy or CompuServe and no one really cared about it. And so it was hey, give it to the young twenty something year olds who care about that stuff. We're dealing with TV, and we're dealing with print, and we launched when designing five on the internet. I met Infoseek which was the first search engine to ever do putting ad banners with keywords, which Google obviously since I've absolutely perfect. That's the heart and soul of it. Now. Right. Yeah. And the crazy part was Infoseek actually recruited me became the first sales higher there that wasn't an executive. What did you learn about that experience that you keep with you several years later with ready up persevere when you're kind of on the cutting edge. I mean, literally four sixty eight by sixty ads were considered a crazy new ad unit. Which is something that we're like thinking, whatever, you know, it took time it didn't happen overnight. It took. God probably six to nine months, and you just had to persevere when you're working in startups and subsequent startups after that. And even the one ready up. Do you have to remind people around you might be new to that business that it takes time that it's not something that's an overnight flash in the pan. Even even if there is success. Absolutely. It's hard. You're the wise old man in the. Thanks for calling me. It's one of those things where it doesn't happen overnight. And you get a lot of nose into lot education after left Infoseek fortunate. We got acquired by Disney who had those back in the internet heydays when he worked at entertainment, I dot com. We were kind of more hardcore gaming focused. We weren't doing a lot of ad revenue with the video game publishers who are spending all their money in print so which just a function of time and working my ass off and suddenly boom exploded. And the long story short was we took the company private at twenty six million. And we ended up selling to News Corp for six hundred fifty million mazing, and for you to be a young entrepreneur to be in a position where you're seeing that kind of money. What does it do to you? Because you're not getting the Sixers a lot that goes into getting six hundred fifty million. But but the wind to be a startup an entrepreneur the win on on getting that cell has been huge Infosec. We went public literally within public. I don't even remember year or two had been there. I mean had gone from making eighteen thousand dollars a year living in San Francisco, which is just ridiculous. I remember go out and spend forty dollars a night. And be like, oh, man. I'm done. I'm done to working at a company that went public, and it's completely life-changing. It's very life changing. And you know, it's one of those things where you know. It's probably live arrogant when in your twenties when you've come into that sort of success. Luckily, my wife who've married to what twenty four years now this year, or I'm sorry, nineteen years this year, we together forty four and you know, she was kind of person who kept me in check so these so

"Massage parlours situations, we took a bunch of your calls at eight five five two one two four two two seven. I see some of you guys still on hold their. We'll get back to Robert Kraft at some point. We have a poll out there. If you want to interact with us on Twitter, it is at Tiki and Tierney on Twitter sampler put up a poll, what should the NFL do obviously he referenced some of the past disciplinary actions taken against other owners in the National Football League other players etcetera. Should you do nothing should you? Give a significant fine say a million dollars. Should you take away draft picks as is being championed by Bart? Scott, our local W F A N personality or should he be forced to sell the team ally? Jerry Richardson with the Carolina Panthers right now or t seven four seven forty seven percent of you are saying that Robert Kraft should be forced to sell the team. Force to sell the team just because his driver took him place to get happy. That's just I mean, maybe a little bit extreme. But it is what it is. We'll get we'll come back to that. Because it's going to be a story. Maybe something else develops over the next hour or so we'll we'll we'll cut in talk about it. But right now, I want to move on to the story that the NBA this coming out of the NBA, obviously was a lot of good games last night. The Los Angeles Lakers beat the rockets after an epic meltdown by the rockets rocket shot five of seventeen in the fourth quarter five of seventeen they were pathetic. They gave up a nineteen point lead to the Lakers who looked listless at points. But ultimately found a way to come back credit to them and LeBron James, really good games. The Golden State Warriors had a big comeback to beat the Sacramento Kings was good basketball last night. But I think the bigger story that came out of yesterday from the NBA was that Adam silver. A couple of days ago sent a request to the NF NBA players association to lower the league limit on for age required to be drafted from nineteen which currently is to eighteen which effectively does away with the one and done rule. So players do not have to spend a year in college before they can become eligible to be drafted into the BA. And obviously, I'm a big proponent of this. I think this is smart. I think it allows these elite superstars like Zion Williamson RJ Barrett. Those to just jump to mind because of their success at Duke so far to not have to waste a year. And potentially get hurt looked at the the the circumstances of this being released are coincidental. Even I don't believe in coincidence a right after Zion. Williamson hurts his when I'm gonna think was an MC L or an ACO one of the lateral ligaments on his knee when he slipped when his. Nike blew out. But it is what it is. I think it comes at the right time because it's it's high on our mind, and we see the dangers of some of these kids missing potentially missing out on on paydays. But I think there's a deeper discussion to have hear the Commissioner wants us to be implemented by twenty twenty the only push back. I would have if I was the NBA players association is that I would want this to happen sooner. Let's do this twenty twenty. We don't need to wait until twenty twenty two. We can get logistics figured out much quicker than than three years from now. But here's what happens. So if you are an elite college player in highschool, you'd say, you're just you're just a freak, you, you you you blossom up to six foot seven you've been playing basketball since you were eight years old. You have good handles you wanted to be a point guard. But now, you're tall. So you can shoot you can do all these things that make you an elite play you put on the requisite muscle. You've been in a us on the us circuit you've been playing. In big time basketball, and you're well on your way to being an NBA player. I gotta say a star you're on your way to being an NBA player. You just have to get the your college career take that year in high school career, take that you're in college. And then you can get drafted. Well, now if they do away with this age requirement and at eighteen after you've graduated high school, you can go to the NBA you're all of a sudden stuck with a choice, and it's an interesting choice. A really interesting choice. You can go right from high school into to the NBA miss that's option one. And with that option. You're going to get a salary gonna make more money than you've had ever. Maybe your parents have ever had over the course of their lifetime. And you're going to feel secure. Now, the problem with that choice. Is you go right to an NBA team? A team full of men who have been doing this for. One to ten years who care about winning. They don't care about babysitting. An eighteen year old they don't care about when you when they go on the road, and they're hanging out with their boys or whatever spots they like to hang out in Chicago. And you can't get into the club because you just graduated high school, and you got to sit in your dorm room where you got to go try to buy liquor from the grocery store, and you can't they're not they're not gonna worry about you. It's not their job to worry about you. And so you could get ostracize. And I think worse your game could get stunted the NBA practices. We'll call it practicing. They do practice. They do have a training camp. But it is not anywhere near what what happens on a college level. And so let's say you you'd make the team. Let's he don't make the team. What are your options? You you get stuck down in the G league. So I ask Sam because this is all about player development being star in the NBA is about player development. It's about learning. How to shoot it's about learning. How to play within a system whatever that system may be. It's about lowering how to play the pick and roll play and play aggressive in good defense. So you're not ally ability you have to learn all those things is not the same game in high school. So I had Sam to rip off a couple of names of coaches in the G league. This is assuming this kid is not a superstar this isn't design Williams. And this is a kid who says, you know, what I don't want to go to college. I wanna go right to the NBA until he gets drafted. Maybe let's say in the second round. And all of a sudden he's got to play in the G league. And you know, what happens? He gets coats by Bryan Adams could be a good coach never heard of him. He could get Kurds by Gerald Crittenden. Could be a good coach never heard of how about Noel. Again, never heard of him. Ryan who is this guy? I can't even think saints named STAN heath. Ryan kruger. Brandon bailey. They can all be really good coaches. They could be I I have no idea or they could just be guys holding a position in the G league. Because it's it's it's the G league. And they're trying to promote somebody who maybe knows how to be head coach or does it or you could choose option to which is go to college, and you're going to have your tuition board, your meals, you can have this state of the art existence for a couple of years, and you know, you're going to get coach by you're gonna get killed by Bill self. You're going to get coached by ROY Williams. You're going to get coached by coach Calipari even coach K before he got kicked out Rick Pitino. Put a lot of good pros in the NBA Tom Izzo. Another one puts really good players, especially those those three and diguise knocked down three pointers. Big straw. Guys. Have long arms. They can play defense. Tony Bennett, right? People. Don't think of Tony Benn is putting guy great players in the probe. Tony Bennett to keep your round for a couple of years, and you'll be so fundamentally sound that you might win rookie of the year. Malcolm Brogdon, or you might become a great role player. Joe Harris for the for the for the for the nets all that happens because they were coached so well in college they made the decision they weren't. They were good. They were better than any player on their on their on their AAU team. They could shoot lights out. They can do all of these things, but they weren't ready to be NBA players. So they went to college she developed this. This is this is the decision is being created. I think it's an awesome one if the MBA decides to lower the age of eligibility to be drafted from nineteen to eighteen kids who graduate college will. Now have a choice. Am I going to go try to get coached by some of the greats to have ever done it whose jobs have been to try obviously try to win championships? But mature young men who have Ross skill. But don't have all of the details. Necessary to be great NBA players. That's their job. Yes. They want to win championships. Yes. Coach Cal cares about winning a championship. Yes. Coach K wants to win a championship. Yes. Tony Bennett wants to race to stink of getting beat by you and BC in round one. And ultimately as great of a coach is when a championship. But more importantly, I think all of those men that I was talking about on the college level. They care about developing young men into great players and degrade people. I'm not so sure that you're going to get that the G league. So yeah, you might make it if you decide to come out of eighteen, but the reason they put the one and done rule in in the first place, we remember because all of these kids would jump out of high school go right to the NBA. And you know, what they sucked and so what happened to him? I gotta go play overseas. What happens when you go play overseas and your star in high school, and you and you don't make it in the NBA you end up staying overseas. Gonna get lost. Overseas you end up never really making it back into the National Basketball Association. So I love this because it provides an option life and sports business. Everything should be about having options. I think ultimately in time in time. There will be a bunch of kids who say I'm going right to the NBA. I'm gonna forego my opportunity to play in college and get coached by some of the great college coaches of all time, I'm going to go right to the NBA. And then give it one or two probably about four or five years. So you get some data on a bunch of these kids who who've gone right to the NBA, especially those who haven't made it because it's competitive to make an NBA roster. Right. You may sound like the right idea. But there's some grown ass men whose jobs you tried to take who have developed into roles that are specific in an important to team success that you're now competing with you're trying to take their their jobs, and you might not be successful. And when you're not successful, you're going to get kicked out of the G league where you're going to be inferior coached relative to what you would have done in college. Or you're going to get kicked overseas. I I love this because of the option it creates in the in the in the option for failure to many of these young kids, don't think. About the option for what happens when they fail because it's going to happen. Yes. Santer I see you're trying to but your way in. No, I I'm I'm one hundred percent with you. It's such a great point that people have not been thinking about but for every Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant, and Tracy McGrady has a ton of there's an there's a corley on young or Jonathan bender or Leon Smith..

You know, you are always very close to Kobe y and Kobe was aknowledged. He was aloof early. He came into this league at the kid. He couldn't go out and have a beer, you know, he couldn't go to a nightclub. Kobe was kind of in his hotel room for about five years to start this. It was a weird situation. You were always tight with Kobe. What connected world, I think we you know, we kinda grew up carrying the baggage. So to speak. You know, lied just being rookies, you know, doing rookie duties learning how to become pros in this league. And obviously talent levels vastly different. But there are a lot of days after. Practice. You know, we had to stay back and play one on one and get shots up. And he didn't play a lot of minutes his rookie year. I got some minutes. And so I think starting from a similar place gave us a connection kinda lasted, you know, for every year after that. Basically you played with Westbrook. You played with Kobe. Where are they similar personalities where they different? I would say similar personalities in terms of like you mentioned quarterbacks earlier like a, you know, before we came on like amnesia completely from the last possession. Both like I don't care if I'm six for twenty two. I don't remember that I missed sixteen shots shooting the next one. If there's a shot, they'll be Kobe Westbrook. Both like that very similar, and it's it is not necessarily even based in like selfishly thinking, this is the only way that the team can win. But it's it's also it's a belief in self that a lot of the rest of us kind of struggle with their time. And so they get kind of labeled as selfish arrogant too, much ego, a cetera when you could look at it in the other way that some of us are not always confident as we should be. And that's why those guys stick out the way they do. Now. What are that were they different? I think that Kobe's understanding. Like the nuances of the game. And some of the details. Footwork the mechanics of plan basketball how to efficiently do things and get to certain spots on the floor. Get his shot off. He understood those things that are very young age. And it's why he was able to take advantage of just about any defender. Any team very nuanced player. Yeah. And I think the Russell was starting to learn how to become more nuanced a think he's been able to dominate physically and as he gets a little bit older as the league evolves. And as he starts to look at. How will I need to play for us to win a championship? And for me to play for another ten years. He's going to start to have to become more nuance in his game. Derek? It's really interesting. You mention that the league's different I grew up. You could hand check..
"nba players association" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"League, make enough money to to make good living or get the mind that they deserve based on their talents or go right to the NBA, allow them to do that. And we need the NBA players association to change the rule. And then if they go to college. Say that they're not going to take them for three years so that the guys that are playing basketball are guys that want to be in college. They want an education. A lot of this will be eliminated if we do that. So I think we need the NBA to help us in. And then also we gotta say, we still as coaches have to maintain the integrity to keep college basketball at a level that keeps it offended student athletes playing basketball. My biggest concern is your as the g. league money up, they stopped going to school. They try to go to the g. league three years later, they're not NBA players. And then where do they go back to that? That's that's the one I know what happens in baseball, but that's just my one concern a, we selling a dream that all of a sudden three years later, these kids can be twenty one years old. They're not going to have a college support system unim-, Brenda landing spot to go back to it. And that's one of those things that's just, you know, I worry about knowing. The kids that I coached. I think I think you're right, but I think this idea that these kids are listening to us and taking the advice of intelligent people around them or educate people around them to take that chance on their education. I think those times are gone. I think we gotta be honest about that. The old model doesn't work anymore, so we have to give them the choice. I think some of them will take the choice and be successful. Some of them will not, but then eventually they will all learn. Here's the value of my education and going to college, and here's my value of going to g. league. And I think more of them will choose to go to college and appreciate the education when they see a few fail in the g. league. And I hate to be so crass about that. But the other option is where we are now and this is getting worse. And I think even more people are going to get hurt this way. Then if we made it legitimate, my piece about that set the college basketball is not authentic anymore. If all this is going on. You guys aren't in college to get education. You know mean they're in college because of being forced to go there. They don't wanna go there and and so it's not offensive and anything that's not authentic is eventually gonna crumble. It's a good part. Jay boy, I appreciate your time. Have a great season. You know, I think you're gonna have you know, I, I always say sometimes even though it you take maybe a step backwards in terms of all these young guys, it's gotta be invigorating, and I know you'll enjoy no one will do better job with their team than you will. And I look forward to seeing the fin. I'm Jacky Chan I have to make a game at the finish year. Reload to have you just because we don't have Jackie still give me call the middle CJ.

"If the NBA players association agreed to change the age limit in the NBA than high school. Seniors who meet certain criteria will be able to get an agent as well. So this is really, this is a fundamental shift for the NCWA in terms of allowing sports agents, although in very. Narrow categories. It's not by any means. Everyone gets a sports agent and everyone doesn't include football players either. Well, when I don't understand here is they're saying to USA basketball, hey, you guys decide who's elite USA basketball says, no, we're not. We don't want to be involved in this, but the NC double a. goes ahead and says, hey, look at the changes we've made, meanwhile, the NBA and USA basketball going min. You're blindsiding us. We didn't know that you were going to actually go to print with this. Yeah. I mean, one concern for the NC double a.'s that it doesn't want to appear as if it's conspiring with USA basketball or conspiring with the NBA because once it starts to do that, there's the possibility of an antitrust claim that these are in some ways competing entities that could have joined hands to agree on rules that impact players so it to defend the NCW on this point, it it actually makes sense to say, we're not involved with who gets counted as a qualified player that it's some third party which we with which we have no relationship. So the NCWA could be arguing at least implicitly they want separation from this distinction. Yeah, I think it's a whole lot of nothing here. Michael. Maybe you know, you're seeing it through a legal prism and I'm just looking at this with just what reality is elite players already. They already have representation, and I, you know, and who's deciding who's elite, I imagine if there's a chance you're going to be drafted, then you should be considered lead. If they're only saying like, fifteen kids can be elite. I, I know they wanna get rid of agents or at least control agents, and they want to try to soften AAU or water it down or take it away. I don't know if I see much of anything here, Michael. Well, this could also just be the first step right idea. I think we're gonna see complaints by football players and and also potentially women, basketball players and other athletes that can turn pro who could bring a variety of legal claims if they wanted to go in that direction, arguing that they're being denied a benefit that an elite group of male basketball players can get. So if that's the case and the NCWA feels pressured, I think we could see a more fundamental shift where agents are allowed more generally. And I think you know, I agree with you, Dan, that this isn't the big change in that these agents are going to be restricted from negotiating endorsement deals on behalf of players that would be a big change or allowing players to monetize their name image and likeness through having a YouTube channel or other means those are not part of this deal. But if this is the first step of a longer sequence of events for the NC double a. I think it could prove meaningful. We're talking to Michael McCain, the legal expert at Sports Illustrated, but is this just another way of ensuring that the NC double a. is not going to be paying its athletes. Yeah, I think this is like the NCW often does it. It takes interim steps as a way of trying to push back pressures on the NCWA to pay athletes that whether it's allowing players to get the full cost of attendance, which really was a reflection of Ed O'Bannon case where abandoned sued and then the NC double a. made that shift. And I think the NC double as an entity where when it gets sued or when it gets called to the table, it does cede certain things, but it wants to hold onto this fundamental idea of amateurism this fundamental idea of the student athletes that are that remain very controversial. So yeah, I do think this is a response by the NCW to sort of pushback some of the larger pressures against it. But at the end of the day, the NC double a. can only hold on as long as the market..

"What wound up happening July. The first period is gonna stay, which means peach jam has been saved. Perish will take credit for that from now until the end of his time on earth, but it won't just be peach jam. It will be any kind of event that's non-scholastic that wants to be held in that period. Coaches can attend it. I personally expect. Adidas and Under Armour to bump up their tournaments and their championships right alongside the peach. Damn. So what you will have is a crunch in that weekend could be good, could be bad. The second weekend is gone. The last weekend in July will now be a joint effort between the AA NBA NBA players association and USA basketball to hold elite camps. We don't really know how those camps are going to be formed. Gonna be run. They're going to try and get anywhere from twenty two hundred twenty five hundred of the top high school players in the country to attend those soft. Moore's juniors, seniors in high school be eligible. Freshman will not. There's more stuff with recruiting stuff, but perishable link this in the podcast post on the site. I haven't on my Twitter feed. If you wanna see the details about the recruiting stuff, which to coaches being so much. That's all been detailed on the site in advance to all this. Some other big stuff, though players now have the ability to return to college basketball if they go on drafted, which makes nice headline. But here's the react. Of it is that if you get to the point where you could go back and you go on draft, you have to have had an NBA combine invite to essentially apply for that possibility. And there's some other stuff that goes into it. But realistically, if players take advantage of this, it's going to be very few. I'm talking one, two, three tops a year. If even that and civilize said that they did research on this and found that not many players in that position really would opt to return to college basketball to begin with. So it's a rule that it's good that it's there. But at the same point, why did you even do it to begin with? Because there's gonna be a lot of players to take advantage of it. Also players can establish relationships formerly with agents when they are deemed an identified as an elite prospect, and I'm trying not to ramble here parents, but there's so much and this is problematic as well, because who's going to label these prospects as elite will. Apparently it's going to be USA basketball with some. Working conjunction with the incidentally, I guess. But as many people have pointed out, there are players that could end up being elite that aren't wanting to play with USA basketball or come from outside the United States. So what's going to be the protocol for how those players are going to be identified and more more than that? Why are you limiting the pool to begin with? It is problematic. In my opinion, pairs is going to get into that as well. Couple of things real quick college presidents chancellors. They're now going to be on the hook in theory, I have my skepticism with this, but in theory, the way that head coaches are responsible for what happens with their assistant coaches. The incidentally says that presidents and chancellors are now going to be held responsible for any wrongdoing that happens within their athlete departments. I can't see a scenario outside of what happens at Penn State and Baylor, and I'm not even convinced that an Ohio State which is an ongoing issue with urban Meyer that you're gonna see presidents at schools lose their jobs on account of this new. Incidentally legislation, maybe we look up in a day and actually has made some sort of big impact. And the other thing is the instability is amending. Its language does not have true subpoena power, which has been a big issue. In the FBI case, it's a mending its language to basically say, if you're going to work in an institution, no matter what you will have to abide by our rules and regulations are investigation process even after removed. Because if not, you stand have potential lifetime show. 'cause never be hired again at an civil institution. So there's more enforcement being put in. There's even more than all the stuff, but I've, I've sort of hit on all this and the the one last thing I'll say Peirce before I handed over to you and you can run with it. All of this was done not just in reaction to the f..
