EVO 2020 was cancelled
"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

Young Great White Sharks Eat Off the Sea Floor: Study
"Of a Dorsal fin cutting through the surface is iconic. But scientists studying the stomach contents of young great white sharks off the coast of Australia. We're in for a surprise. When they learned that the predators seemed to spend a lot of time, patrolling the sea floor. They have predominantly fish based diet, which is not unexpected for juvenile watch shocks, the most important price basing we have been fibers Australian Salmon University of Sydney Graduate Student Richard Grainger. He and his team sorted through the stomach contents of more than fifty juvenile white sharks that died after being entangled. Entangled in shark exclusion, nets meant to protect swimmers. The expected finding was just the diversity and importance of bottom dwelling species, things like stock cases which their selves in the Santa Quite strange, looking fish and flathead, but also seeing rights, people actually did not have a good idea of the particulars of great white shark diets as Grainger points out the sharks enjoy protections throughout the world, so most researchers estimated their diets through the chemical markers that they can ethically access by taking small skin samples. These measurements indicate at what level of the food chain the predators feeding, but not the actual critters that make up their meals. That's quite a lot of evidence that lots of different animals, so even cannibals noble have proposed self select different prey foods based on a particular balance of nutrients. Grainger hopes that by further understanding. WHAT JUVENILE WHITE SHARKS TO EAT! He can begin to piece together. How and why they make? Make their predatory choices. The study was published in the Journal Frontiers in Marine Science on the sanding and predicting when shocks might be more abundant in certain areas would be an end goal, avoiding or mitigating human shark conflicts means understanding the sharks nutritional goals, and if researchers can anticipate, where, and when sharks are likely to spend their time hunting, they can better protect humans from getting bid and sharks from getting killed.
CIA did not verbally brief Trump on Russia report, says official
"The. National Security Adviser said the CIA. Tossed with briefing, the president decided not to tell him about reports that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban for killing American soldiers, because it was unverified intelligence. The claim from Robert, O'Brien came top members of the administration gave differing accounts on the status of intelligence reports on Russian bounty payments, and why trump had not taken action in response, but had repeatedly pressed to readmit. Russia to the g seven club of nations trump himself, continued to suggest that the allegations of Russia paying Taliban fighters to kill Americans were a hoax. It had been reported that the intelligence was included in the written presidential daily brief, given by the CIA O'Brien appeared to suggest it had not been included in verbal briefings given to trump who famously doesn't read written briefings. O'Brien was severely criticized for putting the blame for a major policy issue on a relatively junior CIA official. This is the same scapegoating play that the White House ran in the corona virus context, blaming trump's intelligence briefer for something that is chiefly in fundamentally a failing of the white. House staff said net price, a former CIA analyst and national security spokesman. He added. We now know the information was included in trump's written PD, which is how the intelligence community regularly flags items that the president needs to know meanwhile Mike Pompeo.

Who really killed Blockbuster Video?
"I'm Peter Kafka and I'm Ronnie. Mola and this is landed the giants. The net flicks effect a podcast on Netflix's disrupted. Hollywood change the way we watch TV and movies. And how it should have been squashed by giant competitor, but ended up turning the tables and killing the video store. Okay Peter. Let's go back in time long. Before we had netflixing chill, we had blockbuster nights. Remember this tonight. Make a blockbuster. In the nineties and early outs, blockbuster was the world's largest video rental chain. It was a huge part of American culture at its peak, it was bringing in six billion dollars a year in revenue and had more than nine thousand stores around the globe. It was the place to rent movies it was. Social place like teens would meet their. You know people you know because that was one of the few things that you could always do as a high school student. Was You know you could get together with your friends and rent a movie and go to the cool, parents, house, and watch it where there's a copy of the wiz that I would like hide in a corner at blockbuster because I always wanted to be there when I come back for, and we would go in there her car then go into blockbuster and pick out a movie, and then we get a little treat you know I don't know. We pick two to three movies scary WanNa funny one and then in action. Nobody has the movie I want I. Even Video Blockbuster probably hasn't I mean? We have over ten thousand videos? Five six o'clock on a Friday night. Phones are ringing off the hook. It's never what do you have? That's good. It's always what you have. That's new that last voices Jason Bailey nowadays. He writes about movies for places like vulture in the New York Times, but years ago, he used to work at a bunch of video stores, including blockbuster, which he says wasn't as great as we might remember. I have much more nostalgic for the video store. Then I do for blockbuster in particular which really in a lot of ways. Ways killed the video store, flattening it into the sort of McDonald's version of the video store, right? That's what I remember about. Blockbuster killed my local video store replaced with blockbuster, which I did not like blockbusters were everywhere, and everyone rented from there, but that didn't mean it was a great customer experience, one of the big things that you always hear people who who don't remember blockbuster through a Golden Glove nostalgia talk about where the late fees or as they tried to rebrand them additional day fees or additional rental fees. They were outrageous. Boxer made a ton of money on late visas or additional day fees running. At one point late fees made up seventy percent of blockbuster prophet, and along with this highly fees, there are a long list of other problems limited new releases, long lines, shitty customer service all which is lousy for customers, which also made it lousy for employees. I got cursed out a fair amount. Again for you know just doing what I was told to do by corporate, but yes I would, I would be told that you know that. We were monsters that we were bloodsuckers. I had that thing back on time I saw you. You take it out of the box I was like I got called out like that I had people tell me I saw you in here when I dropped it off. You tell me you didn't check it in on time. I'm not paying that if it got heated, but this is all factored into blockbusters business model. The company even had a term for it managed. Dissatisfaction managed to satisfaction is a term that John Antioch. Oh the CEO Blockbuster explained to me, and that is is long as you give a consumer and. And of what they want. They will ignore the fact that they're not always getting what they want. This is unique heating. She's a journalist who covered enough for Reuters she also wrote a book and made a documentary about Netflix's history blockbuster understood that only twenty percent of customers who came in would get the movie that they wanted, and they would have to get something else the other eighty percent of the time. They weren't happy, but they weren't horribly angry. Managed dissatisfaction is one of the great corporate euphemisms for screw you give. Give us your money. You are ever going to hear and if you can't remember what it was like to go to. Blockbuster occurred analogy. Be Like an airplane. You WanNa. Airplanes are like it sucks every way, and if you want to improve it in any way, you have to pay additional fees for everything that is blockbuster in a nutshell in the nineties, yeah, customers felt trapped, and with all the smaller mom and pop stores being squeezed out. They didn't really have a better alternative, and then all of a sudden they did. Again you've gotta remember. That netflix emerged in the late nineties when the Internet still felt pretty new. Amazon was just becoming release accessible selling books online. They're doing it cheaper than the competition and they didn't have to operate stores, so Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph to tech guys in the bay area are surveying the landscape and they thought hey, we could be the Amazon of something else. There's a better way to rent movies as many as you want. Go to Netflix DOT COM. COM Bake a list of the movies you want to see and about one business day you'll get three. DVD's kept him as long as you want. Without late fees DVD's had just come out. And suddenly there was this new way to watch movies that didn't involve these bulky VHS tapes. DVD's were smaller, more durable, and you could ship them for price of a postage stamp. So? Hastings Randolph thought. Hey, we could be them on of movies. This may seem obvious now, but at the time this was a big deal. Suddenly instead of having to go to the store and deal the crummy customer experience, he could stay home. You can hit a button and someone somewhere sent you the dvd you wanted instead of the one you had to settle. for which Netflix customers loved by the way they tended to order? The kind of movies at blockbuster didn't feature or even carry it all they had all the indie movies and older movies and blockbuster was focused on what was new.
Philadelphia 76ers See a Nice Jump on Recent NBA Power Rankings
"This six years moving up three spots from number ten last week to number seven this week perplexes me what did the Sixers do they increase their chances now this is power rankings which isn't exactly the same as handicapping chances to win championships but they go pretty much hand in hand are you telling me signing Ryan broke off this Australian three point shooter who's a liability on defense and was out there on the scrap heap the Dallas Mavericks who are having a pretty darn good season thought so highly of him did they release them and the Sixers pick him up off the scrap heap that he's a difference maker I get a date Ben Simmons now looks good in one hundred percent healthy and should be good to go but they did a power ranking just last week so what transpired in this last week did move the Sixers up in this one individual's estimation tell me nothing happened the ticket didn't add again other than Ryan Bocaue broke off which I don't think he's gonna get minutes here at all he's I think more of a safety net than anything else it may I. Kate Middleton who really open some people's eyes in the last month of the season before they shut it down or for Concord my eyes can't throw the ball in the ocean then yeah this guy is there just in case to be able to potentially step in but if the Sixers are healthy and have the players that they've had on the roster all year I don't think this guy ever gets off the bed so what was it did it would lift the Sixers up in anyone's if the

"One and welcome to mentally yours. Metro Case Mental Health podcast I'm event and today. I'm chatting to Juno Dawson. She's a journalist and also who's recently released a novel called Wonderland. We've tested to have before on the podcast about trans. Women and mental health in general today. We're catching up with her to see how she's doing in lockdown and also to chat about her recent work. Dawson welcome back to mentally as thanks so much for coming on. Thank you for having me back time. Do I know exactly what it was? It was two years ago because I was really lay. Train hilarity and I've never been so stressed and then not only was I. I went to the wrong. Cheat stuff as well. I can't believe it's been two years, but thanks for coming back on. We were already gently checking about this before we started recording. How have you been getting on during lockdown generally? It's strange now because I want to use the phrase noble because I don't think his normal. Ud, just kind of comes and goes in waves. Doesn't it kind of? How bothered you are by things and I. Think in a strange with that. We've sled a relaxed some of the lockdown roles. It's almost harder in a way like when it was very strict roles, we'll do what we couldn't couldn't dare. Except for Dominic Cummings, who did? What we were allowed to do, and we all we all just stay home and we isolated with the people that we lived. Whereas now there's all these thousands of perplexing roles about you can go to the zoo, but you can't see grandma you're. You're allowed to go for Bob Hewitt at your friends, but you cannot can't use the toilet, so it's all. It's all very strange. During knows us to be happening when it's super strange. If you're single like me, because a friend tweeted earlier, basically you can go to the zoo, but you still have sex. If, you're single. Technically like that has been no announcement about anything like that. So that's is just a weird state of events is net, but anyway. The zoo. A question. So to get the most serious stuff. Have you found anything particularly challenge challenging during the pandemic. yeah I think. Initial theory again we've been. We've been inside for months now. going chronologically at the beginning of lockdown. Wife found really difficult was pretending that everything was normal. Think particularly as a writer people looked at. My life has one which could very much carry on us normal like. What are you worried about? You can just keep on writing like this'll be great. You could just get the next novel done. And so I made a little office space in my living room of tried to. was really really pushing myself to work. Like from nine to five and Then at the same time. I was like project managing my partner as well because he'd been furloughed was right will. This is a list of jobs that need doing around the house. About maybe three weeks in I just had a complete breakdown, and it manifested with me attacking of Venetian blind. Wasn't that wasn't behaving in the way I wanted it to, but that's just wasn't remember that night. I just went to bed, and just cried and cried and cried and Max I think wasn't really shall what was going on, but I think. I just needed to let it out because I've been soft clinging mom. And and you know, it wasn't normal and isn't normal this this isn't like anything that anyone who is alive now has experienced I mean potentially if you are old enough to remember World War Two and I guess you. You've lived through this situation before, but everybody Balm Post Nineteen fifty isn't GonNa remember any of situation like this and I think the there was almost I had to go through a process of just accepting that nothing was the same an indeed and I've had seen the people of referred to it as a love, the same emotions as bereavement. Light let's Elaine go part. Of like, you're not going to be seeing your friends, you're not going to be seeing your family. You'RE NOT GONNA be. Doing exactly what you want to do. Doubled up, point is. Public Health Fairs. Are. We GonNA get sick. Are we going to die? I'm having I was very lucky in that nobody who I personally NAR has. died of Covid, but my daddy did get sick from something else, so we were trying to deal with you. Know my dad being in hospital and Oh my God. He's in hospital with his diabetes is GonNa get coronavirus. So it was it was a lot, but the not feels like years ago now because that was like right at the beginning of lockdowns. That really does feel like a different life.

Debt Is Never the Answer with Dave Ramsey
"My twenties, I believed what a lot of people believe. The borrow money to make money. I got a degree in finance and the power of leverage and the simplistic formula that if you borrow at one interest rate by percent, four percent, and you reinvested, and you make ten or twelve percent that you're making the spread. That is simplistic, primitive wrong, but I believe that lots of people quote that to me on twitter. to show how ignorant I am that I just don't understand the power of leverage, but I do understand the power of leverage and. Four million dollars worth of real estate until I was twenty four and twenty five years old, and I bought it right so I had a net worth of a million dollars, which means only owed three million on the four million and make a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year flip in properties and doing things, but leverage is a two edged sword, and people never talk about the other edge of it. They always. It only works when it works. Marring money only works when it works. And so, what happened to us was we went broke because the bank called her notes, and we didn't have any liquid. We didn't mean money. We weren't laid on the notes. They just panicked. hysteria tax climate that we were in the presidential climate that we were in and called. You know, look around. Song is ninety short-term notes for flips, and they call them, so we spent two and a half years losing everything we own well in that process I had a an existential crisis. And everything that I believed evidently was wrong. Yeah, and so I went through this whole thing of my intellect, being crushed and questioning and as a Christian I was met God on the way up I got to know him on the way down, and so I started studying biblical finance, and I found the borrowers slave to the lender, and I found one hundred percent of the references in the Bible to dead or negative. And so as a believer that puts a challenge against your finance degree. Yeah, no kidding and you go okay. Somebody's wrong and somebody's right because they're two polar opposites, and you can't just say well, you know sometimes. It's not sometimes in the Bible. And it's all the time in the finance classroom. That's right that you borrow, and so I had to really took me why at first I was in a position and that I just bought it based on my faith. Okay, I don't borrow money. God said. Don't borrow money on. Borrow money period. And then over time I've started understand the intellectual reasons for that the mathematical reasons for that and so I don't borrow money by basically when you borrow money, you increase risk. and. When business people say zero. Five hundred thousand dollars to buy this piece of equipment. They do not. Ascertain risk. They say I can borrows money at six percent and I can put the piece of equipment to work and I can make twelve or fourteen percent on my money, but that's only if everything goes perfectly as it did in your head, and it never goes perfectly business about ninety percent of my ideas that I think are brilliant that I bring to the market. It suck. And borrow on them. It destroys. My life doesn't work, but I think this is a pretty everyone sees you as the guy on the cover of the book cutting up the credit card and the guy that's yell at people for taking car payments, but we don't always address the topic of debt for business. What you're saying is that the same principles apply to how you run your business as how you and your personal absolutely, and if you to look at it through the faith lands, you can't find it in scripture if you WANNA look at it through an intellectual Lens. Let's actually do real math in a real business case. Okay, if you get a finance degree and you get licensed. Licensed in securities like I have been, and you've been in that world. We know in that world that we do not compare a high risk. Mutual Fund apples to apples with a low risk mutual fund. There is a measure of risk mathematically. It's the height of the valley, the height of mountain if you graph it if you see the waves graph in your mind right now, the ones that are straight up straight down have a higher Beta. A Beta is a mathematical statistical measure of risk Okay, and so we know that you can take the bait drop it under the line, meaning an inverse mathematical formula and being complicated here, but the point is, you can intellectually look at this. So when you add risk when you adjust for risk, you can compare these two mutual funds apples to apples. By putting the Beta, underline yeah, inverse relationship, so you're adding risk into your math formula so that you can accurately look at the situation. Most people ninety eight percent of the business cases that entree leaders have brought to me and supposedly sophisticated people who criticize me on blocks. They do not have any measure of risk in their formula. They're not saying what happens if this happens, what happens if there's a move in the marketplace what happens if a customer doesn't pay me, what happens if it doesn't sell like? I think it's going to sell, and it can be something as simple as that guy borrowing ninety thousand dollars to buy a dump truck. And it's GonNa work out I'm GONNA saw him on a whole lot of stuff dump truck. We can't get loads. Fuel prices go up insurance prices. Go Up. He has wreck here about any of those things, and so he says I'm GonNa make money by borrowing money, but there's no mathematical measure of risk in that formula, and when you insert risk into your leverage formula, the benefits of Leverage go away. They dissipate. So turns out. We can mathematically prove that God was right. socking. I mean that's what it comes down to so present this. A bunch of MBA's at Vanderbilt spoke to him. Ba Group over there and they were looking at me like German shepherds Oh. That's what I was GONNA say. Lou because nowhere in academia. Does anybody talk about this?

"So thanks to the band dynamic. Were now looking at real world examples. A Louisiana Pastor is under fire for holding church services for hundreds of prisoners despite a state ban on large gatherings. His attorney argued that people would rather come to church and worship like free. People will live like prisoner in their homes and then suggested that depression and anxiety experienced by people confined to their homes could be worse than the people who have already contracted this virus and die. That's not the only example. A Florida pastor alter arrested olding large church services in defiance of an executive order mental limit. Gatherings it's important to note that these instances appear to be a small exception to the strong trend of religious groups canceling services to protect public health in a religious. In a recent survey only twelve percent of regular church. Attendees you respondents. Said that in person services at their house of worship have not been canceled. Wow okay the role of rules. Applying to defiant pastors will depend on the state involved. The most high profile case was in the Louisiana which has a A Religious Freedom Margaret Net

"Scaling Bells the podcast. We're going to go straight to Brooklyn Nets reporter Anthony Puccio who works at nets daily that blog. Sba Nation and we're pumped be joined by Anthony. Anthony what's going on man? Thanks Rapid ONS cow palace today. Steve thanks so much eventful few days. I would imagine so I I. It's one of those stories where I mean. We were talking about earlier in the week. Saying you know things clearly don't seem like they're right there but I don't think any of us really saw this coming at least during the middle of the season and you know where the nets are still in the playoffs and I'll start here because you tweeted out that you had a source told you that you know some of the players sort of soured on Atkinson. Some of the players wanted him to be gone. Obviously everyone's going to immediately pointed Kyrie Irving from that. What can you share? What can you tell us about that? Yeah so what I had initially heard. Some a couple of sources was specifically some name. They they didn't give me any names in particular but I think that we were able to draw the conclusion that Joe Harrison and day. One guys weren't walking in that office and and looking to get Kenny out What I did learn in the in the past. Couple of days that You Know Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving Andre Jordan. Some of the newer guys better players. They weren't crazy. Kenny Atkinson and and really had no intention of playing for next year. You know they didn't want to really play for then. This doesn't really fall on one guy but again if Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving wanted Keniakin since to be the coach. They'd still be the coach today. Explain that to me because Kyri barely played and when he did he dominated and Kevin Durant obviously hasn't hasn't played. So how do they know that they don't want to play for Kenny Atkinson? What is based off of show? I wish I had a good answer for you. I mean that's that's been my biggest case in defending Kenny. Atkinson is that you know he built this whole thing up from from nothing and the reason why these guys are even in the store today because of what Kenny Atkinson Bill Would Shaw March and the and the nets organization. Now these guys come in tyree plays twenty games all in and and separate spurts so they never even had a chance to get any rhythm together. And that's where eight and twelve him in the lineup. Kevin Durant played zero games. So the net didn't even give text and a chance to coach with the superstars and and keep in mind also carries the majority of the year. So he was missing three of his best players so to me it. Just it's blasphemous that they didn't even give him a shot coach tyree to coach. Katy you know this. This just seems like something that When they came to Brooklyn it was almost as if Kenny Kenny Clark was already taking. You know it's funny everyone. In the summer you know wanted to point to oh the nets culture was a main reason why these guys wanted to join up. They like the system there. And even you have Kevin Durant the introductory press conference. You know saying I've never met candy but you know I've watched videos on Youtube and I like what I've seen. That should have been a red flag right away so talk me like what has the you were there last year to this year the culture change. I mean what is that like? What's it been like with those all those new guys in the building you know obviously Katie and Kyrie and De'andre or the big names but how is that culture ship sort of impacted the future of the team and whether or not Kenny Atkinson was a good fit for them? It's just different man. I mean you know the team that they had last year. It was organically built. There was it was Kenny's team. They played his style of ball. You know they. They had this blue collar identity The continuity development they rallied behind the NGELO Russell Eighteen. And they could've tank 'cause they as you guys know in Boston. You know they. They finally had their first round pick for the first time in over four years. So you know. They didn't fall today. They fought back and they finished made the playoffs as everybody knows and that team was so tight knit you know like when. I say they were like a family. You know they really were. Those guys hung out inside the locker room and outside of the locker. Now we're talking about the culture and and superstars coming in and basically a whole new team here and then that's been using the word culture culture culture but I think with everything that's happened with Kenny. Atkinson these past couple of days and and have to have it happen this way to end this way. Just shows that and that's a really no different from any other teams despite all their claims of being a superior culture in the NBA. So I think now you know they have to figure out. I think Shaw marks you know. He's never managed a team with superstars. Joe Cy who really made the firings one to make the call Kenny Atkinson. He's an experienced owner as well. So these guys have to learn how to work with superstars and Alan having their own culture and their work environment and implementing that with the superstars and so far as a result as a consequence Kenny. Atkinson got fired for you. Know look he he overachieved and and he got fired for Anti tell me I got a theory behind. This CERRUTI talks about the knicks dysfunctional. But he does talk about the loyalty of the Knicks fans. Maybe the the nets are trying to show that they can be dysfunctional too so they can lower some of the knick fans who are halfway on the fence right. Now you could tell our knick fans going to ship is just a move that makes those those horrid knick fans that are so miserable to shift over. Because now we have dysfunction in both places scall- Former net to saying that right but I mean spe speed like you've got a I I don't understand why now is the firing. I get Rian K. D. Y. Now why not just let it play out? Why not see what's available what? What is the significance of doing it right now now and I gotta ask you this? There's no way that Shaw marks is one hundred percent behind those two guys. Were like lock and step up until until the firing. I've never seen any dysfunction. The Nets and count right now. Yeah Yeah I agree with you. One hundred percent. I think that You know like this timing coming in March again. Maybe it was the gap year lost season. But they're still a playoff team. They're still seventeen each so it isn't a completely lost season and to do it in March tonight. Even give him a chance like I said. Before to coach the superstars and see what he was capable as a head. Coach is just mind boggling but I I couldn't give a good answer. Why did this? I don't think Shawn Martinez behind this. I think that Kenny Atkinson. You know from what I heard. When he found out that he was losing the voices in his locker room. When Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving Andre Jordan? All them aired out their feelings. After after the thirty. Nine point. Loss against the Grizzlies Kenny understood that his voice is not resonating in the locker room anymore and he wasn't quick he was not quitting. So this mutual agreement thing. You know I don't know about that. Was just more of that Kenney said look if you if you're gonNA fire me and a couple of months or whatever it might be I'm GONNA go out on my own terms. 'cause nobody's going to tell me how to do my job that that was his thinking behind it and I think that again he didn't quit. He didn't agree to leave. I think you know. The firing is was a shock for everybody but I think at that point he kind of just accepted it and said if you're going to do just do it now because you know this is the I'm not I'm not GonNa Change my ways. Just because a couple of players come in and they wanted to change change the way I do things around here yeah. That's that's interesting we're talking. Anthony Puccio Nets reporter at Nets Daily. Beaumont twitter at a Pooch Anthony. You know as soon as they brought in all these guys he knew. This was a complete change in his philosophy right that his like sharing the ball and playing basketball. What we saw last year was not going to happen especially with Ko with Kyrie and then obviously Katie. Come BACK NEXT YEAR. I mean He. He must be kind of relieved in a way though. Because you know I never say this. Nobody wants to get fired but this this isn't really what he signed up for and clearly. It wasn't going super well and you have to imagine he's going to be in high demand right in the future and it might even be in the in his own city with the knicks down there at MSG so for Kenny. While obviously nobody ever wants to get fired. He's going to be a hot commodity and this could be a good thing for his future. Could it not no? I totally agree with you. I think that if anything this is the best thing that could happen from because he does have a chance to to be out on market. You know he'll be one of the first coaches and he'll get a job and ten fifteen minutes you know like and especially for team young and developing. Kenny will absolutely get a job so I definitely agree with you. There is a relief from. I think it stings because this was his. This is his His culture his team. This is what he built with. Trauma marks from day one after really just being in the gutters of the NBA. Like to turn them around the way that he did and develop players and turn them into core players on on a you know next year championship. Contending team There's definitely disappointment but I'm sure he's relieved. This is again like you said. This isn't that he signed up for especially if if his firing was inevitable. If cavemen Kyri really didn't WanNA play for him the way that I'm hearing then. Yeah it might as well. Just let them go because it's better off for the guy he could. He could go find another job. Elsewhere spent some time with his family is definitely the first victim of Chiron virus. This is you gotTa Watch out and you gotTa Quarantine Kenny Atkinson. Because you don't want to Cairo in a virus spreading into your organization's whoever hires Kenny let this thing just get out of his system. Because you don't want that your team I've seen it firsthand by the way Who Do you think we'll get the job? I mean this thing about big names out there. Is it tyrod? Lou GonNA get thrown into Mark Jackson. Who who are you hearing or even right now like why? Don't you just pick somebody up? So we can start speculating scale. I think it comes down to. Who's making decisions? Right is a Kadian career. Show marks because I think if it's show March and I think that you look at Jock Vaughn and you look at the coaching. Set the stuff that they have and they've praised for years and despite Kenny being gone you know they praise these guys for being on the court with them and and literally being there and practicing with them and that's what they shoot it all these years so I think that Sean Marks Thinks so highly of the coaching staff right now and I think they might give Jack on a chance but truly I think it's GonNa come down to whoever K. D. and Kyrie want and and you'll see names like Chiron Lou floor around you see names like Mark Jackson float around and and You know that that's that's the most like I really know right about now but you know. It's pure speculation. I think it's GonNa come down to you know again. Who's making the decision here? Kadian tyree or or trauma March. Anthony you get sean marks in a candidate moment do you think he would have some regrets over the free agent signing deciding? Kyrie in K. D. I mean I'm conflicted on this because at one one I look at it in one way I go. Obviously you add these two guys three. If you include De'andre and we realized that they were in a different stratosphere far as contenders I mean they were. They went a nice story last year. A team that played really hard to you know. A team with two superstars a team that nationally people were talking about but I do wonder it must must not be as enjoyable for Sean Mark. Now right He. He basically gave up all control to these super and that is the NBA right. You're going to have these guys. Like typically star players are the ones that control things. Do you think Sean Marks. There's a speck of sort of regret or anything of him. Losing Control of this organization when he basically made those things. I don't I don't know if Greta is the right word because they are going to be he he. He built a championship contending team at least starting next year. But you know he's gotTa look at himself in the mirror and say everything that I built here. All the power that I had like you said is is gone as a result. You know you lost a team that the fan base they rally behind you know in de Ngelo Russell. Demari Carla Davis those guys. Were you know the heart and soul of Brooklyn last year? Only one forty two games but they were very young team. That really made a run that nobody expected and again they they were so tight and I understand you have to get rid of them you get to superstars you bring them in so be. But here's the second consequence. You lose a coach that came in here with you from day one when things were absolutely a an absolute mess and and now he's done and and Joe size is starting to be more hands on..

"Ells the PODCAST. You know we let you down here on Scalp House. The last couple of days are picks have not been up to standard. It might have been up to standard all season but McDonnell the one that's been carrying us. He's hit a little bit of a cold streak here but we promise that we're going to turn this around and we'll get to our best bats as we close the year in about an hour here Ryan mcdonagh so Ryan no hard feelings there and he joins us now former Sean. Gm and our resident GM here on the show. But I think last two days combined Owen six. Oh if you faded US congrats you want money. But if you're following us we apologize. Well bailing on us. It'd be like getting out of your stock portfolio over the last week or so so really. It's a good idea. Just dump out and not paying attention to it no I I added one more and I feel bad about my disappointing performance. Recently I added one more kind of bullet points and your fundamentals. As I mentioned last week it was nothing to do with the Bulls. My second one that I'm GONNA add to my list and this is permanent. This isn't just a temporary list. Do not ever bet on a team that has Assan whiteside on it. So I'm going to bet on the ball and I'm not going to bet on any team account on Hassan whiteside to do anything for me and if I follow those two principles and then I'll do a lot better than I have done over the past couple of weeks and you drive the Eight and bandwagon like and we're all onboard the the bandwagon. So I don't we don't understand that one now for eight and didn't play on Friday against against Portland. That's by the bed. Yeah eight was out Kelly oubre. He's out maybe for the year CAM. Johnson didn't play Blazers. Come in fresh Portland has a real opportunity to make the playoffs now with with dame back and they were awful now. It doesn't help that. Aaron Baynes became only the second guy in NBA history to hit nine threes and have fifteen rebounds in a game. The only other one is James Harden Scout. I'm watching the game sitting there on my couch and as you know when you pick a team if you're anybody gambling money has in feeling when. I'm sitting there watching the couch watching the game. On the couch and Damian Lillard get switched onto Aron Baynes Baynes dribbles left-handed like five feet inside the three point. Line jumps backwards in hits a step back three from the left wing at that point. I said all right. This is not my nine. Aaron and Baynes is shaking Daimler hitting the step back threes. I might as well go have a glass of wine and not worry about this because this isn't going my way well my I had I had the spurs in Brooklyn and Somehow Brooklyn just destroy San Antonio and then fires there frigging coats the next day so clearly. I thought I had something and they somehow still won that game. So I don't we're just we're not seeing the board right but I promise we've got a weekend. We create our heads. We're good to go. We'll give you some good picks it out there. There are only three games. We'll do that in a little bit. I hate when there are not a lot of games. 'cause it's always hard to pick but does speaking of the nets. Let's do this. Let's start with you. Just did about a half an hour on Clippers Lakers. We'll do a little bit more of that later with your mcdonagh but I do want to ask you about this verse Kenny. Atkinson quote unquote mutually parting ways with the nets. I mean we can talk about mutual. That was but it does seem like he didn't want to be there as well. I don't know if you wanted to leave right now. And I'm sure he wanted to stick around. Never no one ever wants to lose their job. we'll get to that in a second but your first impression when you heard that the nets and Kenny. Atkinson had mutually parted ways mcdonagh. Yes I'll go back to last season guys last season when the nets got off to a slow. Start as you remember the first couple months of the season. They didn't play very well. I think they lost six or seven games in a row and there were rumblings at that time that the nets were thinking about making a coaching change. They did not. They stuck with Kenny Atkinson. The season flipped. They wanted a great run after that and obviously ended up winning forty two games and then really pushed Philadelphia in the first round of the playoffs. But those rumors were out there. Last year from people I talked to around the league and so there was some tension and friction and I think the big shift obviously was this off season guys as you know. The Nets did an unbelievable job as good as a job of any team in recent NBA. History of building a culture with not a lot of assets. They didn't have high lottery picks those went to Boston. They didn't have a ton of financial flexibility but what they drafted well. They developed incredibly well and they maximize what they had. And that made them an attractive destination for both kyrie. Irving and Kevin Durant and unfortunately for Brooklyn Deandre Jordan. Came along with them. So the thing changed everything about the culture and an overachiever group of underdogs that went out the window and expectations chain. So did it shocked me know that the timing of it like you said. Cerruti did surprise me when I'm eating breakfast on Saturday morning. So we'll wait a minute. They were up thirty against San Antonio in the first half just last night. But I think it'll be best for everybody especially Kenny Atkinson. Because if I were an executive with a young rebuilding team who is looking to go through a full-blown rebuild that included a player development heavy focus than Keniakin says. The first guy would call so you weren't thinking. What is Sean Marks doing like? Why now at end of the season? What is tiny timing of? This is a little bit strange. Don't you think it is Gal of the reading some of the stuff? That's coming out this morning. The athletic just wrote a long article about some of the behind the scenes including the game. You're asked last week in Boston. When the nets were getting drilled the first half and I guess they had a halftime meeting got pretty heated so there was some tension. There was some friction and look. It's hard enough to coach guys individually in the NBA. And I bring that up because it seems like to some extent fairly not Kyrie Irving Kevin Durant deandre Jordan. Those three guys were a package deal and I don't know if the Andres unhappiness with coming off the bench for his role played into it. Kyrie scown better than anybody thinks. He's smarter than anybody and should be the coach the best player and the MVP. So I think there are a lot of factors here. I think it's very difficult to manage stars in today's NBA especially veteran stars. Who have been around with with with a bunch of different organizations applied for a bunch of different coaches like K. D. Kyrie Indiana. Have so it. It surprised me a little bit the timing this surprise we scale I. It seems like they would have waited till the end of the year. However if Kenny Atkinson sense that his job was tenuous not going to be back next year. I wouldn't blame him at all for going to ownership and Sean marks in particular and saying. Hey Look what. Wa Wa wait. Why prolong the inevitable? If this is best for the organization you guys are going to do it anyways. We might as well do it now. Who Do you think would take this job? We'll scale. I read over the weekend. That Kyrie has never had a coach for more than two years. So so with that with that knowledge probably a veteran guy who says look. I get one more. I got one last crack at this thing. I get one last crack with Katie. Katie's probably got two good years left anyways in his prime if he comes back well from the Achilles injury so this is it for me if it doesn't work out it doesn't work out our ride off into the sunset and have ten million or more on the bank from from this experience but so. I think that's a veteran guy with experience. I think I've seen Mark Jackson's name floated out there. That's not the direction I would go personally. A Jeff Van. Gundy Tom. Thibodeau pick your veteran championship coach. Maybe blue those kind of guys. I think who have coached stars. Who have wanted a high level. That's where I would start my search. It's like if you wanted to inexperienced coach or a younger up and coming coach. You just keep Kenny Atkinson. That's what he is so so now you go get a veteran guy who's guided teams championship level or deep into the playoffs. And say look this. This is a short term play. We know that maximize whatever you can get the best out of Katie and Kerry. What about Mike and Tony? That'd be interesting. I mean. That's a possibility as well. I said it last week when the rockets were rolling. I'll say it again. When they had a horrible week that I think the Antonio going to be available and he's especially as far as creating offensive systems. That are innovative. That was I think one of the knocks on on Kenny Atkinson. That system was to equal opportunity. I personally didn't have that many issues with it seems like Kyri unsurprisingly. Did but yeah that. That's that's a call. I would make as well and keep in mind the rich history there was sean marks. Going back to their days here in Phoenix with the sons. So I think that would be a very interesting one although the challenge. Gal is if you're Sean marks and your team goes out in the playoffs. Let's say Brooklyn goes out for zero in the first round and Houston still playing the wait. Do you wait and see. While they're good good candidates that are potentially going off the board. That's always the challenge as an executive and then owner saying look. We want Mike De Antoni. But we think he's going to be available. But what if Houston makes a surprise run to the NBA finals in either not available or we have to wait longer to see if he is available? Then then we kinda shot ourselves in the foot as other candidates went off the board scowl. We've gotTA give you credit for this because you've you've basically coined the appropriate term for the virus disease that is running through the cavaliers. The Celtics now the nets what does it call the Chiron virus. Didn't you've been going on forever? Like a lot of coaches. I felt like I was wondering. What was Brad Problem? I just thought he didn't get as much sun last year. He actually had to Cairo. Virus too eight Brown Autumn Guide having Al Horford had Chiron Virus. Damn had to Cairo virus last year. I was all his weapons depressed. Tell you man I run a virus of get you. It will get you. They can have a good year next thing. You know. You're having the worst year of your of your life. Ever ever assembled worse year corona virus scowl sort of wants me to go back on the fact that I said that the MVP was a landslide. A couple of weeks ago in favor of Janas. I have acknowledged Ryan that it does not a landslide. That's that was the wrong choice of words. I still do believe even after this. Win by the Lakers and Lebron against the box. And then the clippers. I still do think it is. Y'All lose I think he's though a pretty big favourite in this? I don't think two games that's certainly changed my opinion of that. I believe you're honest. All season long has been dominant and has not let up on both ends of the floor. Where are you at this? I think I have an idea of where you lean. But do you feel like these. Two Games of all of a sudden propelled. Lebron is like as a as an even partner heading into the last night. What twenty or so games of the season for the MVP. No No. I don't think Jaanus is still ahead. And here's why on Friday night gets injured in that game against the Lakers. They lose to the Lakers. Lebron had an unbelievable weekend a fantastic weekend. Nobody will have a better weekend or a better. Two game stretch this year. Then Lebron TAT on Friday night against Milwaukee and then yesterday against the clippers however the honest values in Milwaukee also became apparent not only when he got injured in the game on Friday night. What yesterday against Phoenix when he didn't play here against the sun's in the box who have the best defense in the League gave up one hundred forty points to a depleted sunshine? So I I think honesty is still the MVP. Honestly I don't know what would happen over the last twenty games it would change my mind..

"The White Llama prides gallery as always coming to you on a Monday. And were just talking. There's there's a couple of just massive stories in the League. Right now mass. Obviously we'll get to the nets and their whole disaster situation that scout your scalp. You sort of predicted that URL like early. Last week the turmoil I was saying we were talking about the Knicks and their dysfunction. Whatever and I was saying Oh then that's you know they have this. They have a good culture. They have this good. You know whatever system in place wrong wrong. They mutually quote unquote part ways. That Kenny Atkinson break-up I mean is it ever fifty fifty ever mutual. I'm sure somebody wanted out more than more than somebody else. It seems like the nets wanted him out. Not Not specifically you know the nets front office but maybe the players. We'll get to that a little bit. Ryan mcdonagh a resident. Gm IS GONNA join us on that and we're GONNA go to Brooklyn Anthony. Puccio who covers the nets for nets? Daily is GonNa join us. Good Chapter about twenty minutes there with him breaking his. You know the inside. Look what's going on in Brooklyn there and what seems like a little bit of a volatile situation maybe one of the more volatile situations in the league. We also got to talk about Lakers clippers. We'll start with because the Lakers get a huge win. And not only that against the clippers. They beat the bucks on Friday night. Now everybody wants to have this. Mvp conversation over again especially our Guy Kendrick Perkins so. We'll do that. Come up in a little bit but scall-. How's the weekend what's going on house perk Friday night perk was fantastic? It's so easy to work with him. And it was a tough game to call. Because Utah was dominating the game Celsius didn't have scores out there. You can just tell like Utah controlled the game from the first quarter on but in the midst of all that mean perk are still cracking jokes to hold time. It was it was a for. I have to admit I do a lot of games. I do a lot of sell the game when they're not going. Well you know. I'm not really trying to spin the truth. But it's hard to talk about the faults of this guy or like Kimba Walker not exploding or anything but relying on pert. It was unbelievable. But I do want give you an opportunity because like I'm I'm big on like I make mistakes and I can own up to them. The landslide Janas MVP. And we. Let's just. Let's is back tracked and landslide and we just say. I'm leaning towards versus landslide. Listen I've already acknowledged fall. I have already acknowledged that saying it's a landslide was Amiss. I misspoke. I should not have said that that was that. Was that was not how you would describe because it's not a landslide. It's I mean. That's typically scalise. I don't even like when people are like. Oh It's this. It's not even close because typically that's not true brew. I do think I still think despite the fact that Lebron won both these games against Jaanus and against the clippers and Colli I still think Jaanus is a heavy favourite. I really do that. I really believe that the MVP isn't given out in two games. I mean they were it was. It was a great game sample size. Obviously yachts tweaked his knee. We'll see how that I think. That's actually maybe one of the bigger stories. If you're honest MRS like a good amount of games. He's supposed to only miss any two games here or the sprain knee if he ends up missing a week two weeks a WHO knows if they just rest them for the playoffs. Which could happen. Yeah then I think he'd get right back into it with miss gains but statistically scall- it's it's it really is still overwhelmingly that why not well because Lebron stats are garbage us. You can't look at that. You gotta look at the emotion of the writers. That's what you have to look at. Yes what do they want to do? They WANNA give it again to Janas in the bucks. Beat everybody in the Eastern Conference. Or do they want to fabricate things in their mind for them to pick Lebron James? That's what you have to think about. It has nothing to do with the wins anything like that. Can they justify the Lebron vote? That is what you have to look at and I will say actor this weekend. They can definitely justify the vote. Here's what Lebron's best. Mvp assets are. He's Lebron that's number one number two. He plays for the Lakers and number three. He's got a lot of fan voice That are probably going to be voting. So those if I'm making a case for Lebron the MVP. Those are the first three things that I bring up and listen. I'm not I'm not trying to like. I don't know lifetime. Achievement Lifetime Chia. Oh you're seventeen. He's thirty five. That's that to me doesn't matter why should his age matter at two? Cerruti. We'RE NOT. Do you have a vote? I do not know and I do have a vote. Either when people who have a boat we have to project people who do. We can't look at the basketball because the basketball. That's not a conversation. We had to look at other people. Have a boat can nate. Take the stats the winning. The age of Lebron the Lakers the fan boy. Can they take it all in their mix it up? Shuffle it up next to spit out a Lebron James Vote. That is the debate. Not Who deserves it? Who this that. Can you spin it to vote Lebron and if you can't he will win that's the point. I'm making no scale you're right. I would not argue with anything that you just said. There are GonNa be people that are going to be homers that are going to vote for the brand because they want to get an interview or they WANNA do whatever. That's what's going to happen. That happens and it's and it's okay but I am looking at this as a non voter from a purely like who do. I think he's the MVP not who do I think is people are going to vote for? I am looking at the numbers and what I see from the eye test. And that's when I tell you I think it's still overwhelmingly honest. I mean okay. I was joking about obviously like the three big things are that his name is Lebron. He's a Laker. And that he's got friends in the media the biggest like main statistic. I think that people bring up for Lebron is the on-off discrepancy right. Like the Lakers are so much worse when he's not on the court. I have the numbers here. There's a gap of eleven point six points per one hundred possessions with abroad on and off the court. I mean they are the Lakers. Have a negative net rating have a negative rating the bronze off the core and and people will appoint big. Well the bucks have a plus by which would make them. I think still a top ten teams in the NBA. When y'all on the court but if you look at the difference that I just WanNa make sure? I'm fully understanding this when the brain is off the court the Lakers are a minus eleven. Or when he was plus there like a minus two or around around minus two net rating when he is not on the core there when he is on the court what's his net rating when he is on the court the gap between when he's on the core and off the court is. There are eleven point six points better per per one hundred possessions the gap between him being on off. That's the that's the biggest in the NBA. With all the parameters gossip played a certain amount of minutes. Guys that are typically. That's the main case for Lebron. Look at look at this Laker team without him. They're not good. I don't know if that's necessarily time stats lie. They still have Anthony Davis who is by far and away probably the second best number two in the entire league right now so yes I mean I know. Some of the on-off numbers can tell you that they're not good but Anthony. Davis is still a phenomenal player. And here's the here's the point. I'm trying to make Scowl Jaanus. Like yes the bucks. When he is off the core are still like plus five like. There's still a good team with him off the court but the difference between when he's on the court and off the court it's only ten point nine because there are ceiling when you're on the core is so incredibly high there historically great when he's on the court so the discrepancy is actually not that big of a difference between the off stuff. And if you look at it. Lebron Lethal Unisys. Obviously he's beating honest and assist every major raw category and advanced. Analytics will tell you that this is having a better season. And he's doing it in four or less minutes per game. So you're right there are GONNA be people in the media that are gonNa vote Lebron because Lebron and they like the story and he and he's in La the market franchise of the League. I'm looking at it from purely statistical. I'm watching games. Who'd why because the MVP. And I think it's still by.

"Miami's not going anywhere Philly Philly. Lots of different places. I don't know but it's not like the top of the East is a cakewalk. The bottom of the East we. We dispense with the idea that the conferences or equal. Now because the top six in the East is nice. Seven to fifteen is poopie. Yeah and like the West is although presumably Boston or Brooklyn rather will be six turn to seven. At least theoretically five will turn to six depending on where you have. Indiana next year. Yeah but these other teams. I don't have a huge amount of hope for these other teams toward the bottom of the Cleveland. Atlanta will get better. I think Atlanta should set an organizational goal. Next year of we can get the I guess I mean here's the problem with the Atlanta. They had five good weeks of basketball in March and then all of a sudden the again the expectations change whereas I feel like wait. You actually are gonNA lose three vets. I mean say what you want to Duane deadman. That guy helped him win. Some Basketball Games Veterans League average replacement veterans. You know like you know. Taurean prince not a world beater. Not An all star. Yeah part of the Nets shakiness. This year's story prince has not been good now and it's been disappointing and they started Wilson Chandler last night I was at the Celtics Games. I'm not entirely sure why that change was made but they brought Taurean prince off the bench which was interesting but wherever the impatience in Atlanta's emanating from it frustrates me. They had how many players over the age of twenty three? Do they have do you? Think eminating from there's only one possible explanation ownership and that's it that's always and an of course it's ownership and they bring in and this is. What frustrates me about it? Lands to the extent that there's there's discontent is like the. That was the whole thing. We brought the guy who understands the process and Michael. You know anything about the processes they went from one thousand nine ten the second years always harder you know why they got rid of veterans and replace them. There are very few rookies affect winning as we know is good as they are. I think I think one of the underplayed things about Memphis falling back a little bit to your point about this. And now they're still four games up or three games on the kings and the loss com for on the blazers so they haven't fallen back that much but that just winslow trade equal. Dala was the big name. Right wasn't playing for them. Also in that trade were too sturdy rotation players Jae crowder and Solomon Hill Sturdy. Not Great but sturdy guys go yeah go out. They're going to go out and do their jobs. And in return they got zero minutes of productive. Nba play and all of a sudden. You're elevating deeper bench guys into more prominent roles and I think in the moment of trades like that. I'M NOT SAYING MEMPHIS. Did I did personally? I think you underestimate the impact that has on your present day team to just lose thirty five competent veteran minutes. Replace it with zero and that was always one about. Atlanta dwane dead. That's why I'm doing it exactly. Deadman was a guy and he's back there now but but you know so. I was frustrated by the expectations for the Hawks as they thought they were completely unfair. Yeah they were in my lowest tier power rankings and I wrote like I don't understand why people think the seams making sleet four good weeks of their babies they're like they're young their kids their kids in the NBA and they used all of their cap space on guys who weren't gonNA help their team like Chandler. Parsons and like you know those kind of those kind of players but anyway next year in the West I wrote this in my column on Friday again. Things will change but as things stand right now. I think all fifteen teams in the West will be able to look their season ticket holders in the I honestly say we think we can make the playoffs this year. Now we'll see. There are some teams who could pivot very easily into the bottom and maybe that is a year to pivot to the bottom because no one else is there. You go right to the bottom but I think all fifteen teams. I'm not saying all of them will be realistic. But it's not crazy for Robert Server to go to his fans and say hey where rising team. We can make the playoffs this year. It's not crazy for us to go to his season ticket and say we got Karl Anthony Towns Dangelo Russell. We're chasing the Golden State's back again. There are some wild card. Is that crazy for Vivek? Run D say we almost made been saying? Yeah right like the funny thing is is the only team you say. There'll be some like maybe pivot teams. I can only think of one. Okay See San Antonio those are the two right if they unload Chris Beckett Tyson. Is this Chris. Paul and Jay. Gould is Alexander and and shooter are the Guard rotation there now. Obviously there are all these other variables. I mean I see them playing a competent brand of basketball certainly forty one and forty one. Which gets you? The they are currently sixth in the West two games out of Houston and UTAH. Winning percentage right now sixty two thirty nine and twenty four. So let's let's wrap by saying Tell us what we should know about your coaches piece a ballpark when it's coming out. And what sort of like what's been interesting to you in in reporting it out and thinking about it. It's one of my. It's it's a very popular annual item. So I'm excited I. It's funny started as I just thought there were all these assistants who were interesting in talking about prospects and waxy the stuff I find most interesting now is is the top of the peace you know. Everyone always focuses on the names and the gossip and it's more like what does the job and this year what we're doing is we're creating a taxonomy of different kinds of vacancies. Not all vacancies are the same right. You can't say here are the fifteen best. Coaching prospects. By the way. All fifteen or applicable for all eight. Nine ten vacancies right. I mean the vacancy in Brooklyn is obviously going to be far different than the vacancy in you know. Pick another one of these gossiping things. I mean what would you know if Cleveland opens it up although I think there's some confidence and J B but who knows right like like Chicago opens it up? If for whatever reason those are different jobs even these sort of young. If Chicago opened it up it would be more like the Phoenix. Two Thousand Nineteen opening where they went with Manti. Which is hey. We need someone to come in here. And take control of the locker room and earn some respect versus the Taylor Jenkins two thousand nineteen both Memphis in Chicago were theoretically rebuilding and with limited expectations. But it was a decidedly different organizational ethic. And so to me. What's interesting about the Carousel is every every single vacancy is different in mission and also. I always find that if you want to understand organizations how they define their mission. Who did they hire by the Taylor? Jing entire told you exactly what Memphis was. We are a technocratic organization. All that palace intrigue member that piece I did about the reality. Show drama. That was the main bary's five six years ago like we are now. A technocratic organization is going to do this deliberately right like Atlanta in that would again. What frustrates me about? Atlanta is the Loyd Pierce two thousand. Eighteen higher is long runway really long runway Philadelphia Size. Inky ish runway. Well not so much and you know I always think that the higher tells you so much about you know the elevator. Pitch of a franchise is we are. And so. That's what we're going to see in this piece of what what types of jobs are out there who might fit those jobs. Do we have a ballpark when it's coming out now you've got some news to peg it to think probably late. We always do it like during those dog days. And we're all sitting around. We all know the playoff field. Except for like the eighth seed. And there are some jockeying for four five to three and and I think it's a fun time to sort of take inventory of some sense. I would expect to be the last week of March. Okay so that's about three weeks from now beyond the lookout for that sort of drag on for the second time we put your here. We're both here in Boston. We're both and I love talking coaching with you so again. It's one of the black boxes of the NBA. You know it's not a total blackbox like they're definitely knowable things unknowable decisions you can evaluating things you agree and disagree on but SA- big moment for the Brooklyn Nets and the nets have not had a lot of big moments in Brooklyn so I am very interested to see how this turns out. This is a very interesting move even if if it was sort of burgling around but anyway Kevin Arnovitz always a pleasure to see you and we look forward to the peace thanks.

"And now the welcome to the low post podcast live from the MIT Sloan. Sports Analytics Dork Fest. We've had a rare event at mit dead time in the NBA season. And yet there was huge breaking news this morning with the nets. The Brooklyn Nets the nets of Brooklyn and head coach. Kenny Atkinson who I believe in his fifth year with the nets mutually agreeing to part ways. That's one of my favorites. Mutually agreed and Kevin Arnovitz an eye. Since we're in Boston together mutually agreed to do a podcast about Kevin. How are you? It's like every romantic relationship. There's no such thing as mutual agreement to break up. Someone always has to win or lose right. Kenny Lost Kayla other. He'll get paid. You will get paid And and so one of the reasons. Your perfect is a you know Kenny. And the Hawks coaching tree very well be you. Are I think currently working on your annual? Who are the next head coaches from the assistant ranks and sort of? What is the template of the head coaching job in the NBA? In Two thousand twenty and we were talking before I was actually out with someone from a from team last night after the Celtics Game Charting. How many head coaching openings? There's going to be this summer and they could. There could be anywhere from seven to thirteen years. There's going to be a lot depending on what happens in the playoffs. This used to happen like every few years. You have these. These placid periods was like other sport that many openings Your team sort of situated from a big year you know giving guys a chance and But this year's one of those like every Third Year Soon Nami of coaching changes and there. It's so this is not a shocking event right. This is one of those things at their stories like this where people inside the league. No but it's not really reportable because it's it hasn't happened yet. Things could change you. Don't get it publicly reportable in a way but like this. The timing though is very very strange coming off a couple of very nice. I literally watched them destroyed the spurs last night by a million points and it's march seventh. There's twenty games left in season. The Nets are going to make the playoffs. It's just timing is weird and that strikes. You hard it. I like. This is something. Must be fishy here. And we'll get into. What is fishy where the fish are why they smell but I do think there is a universe in which this is good for Kenny? Because he's out early he now becomes the bell of the ball the first big name and he gets to watch all the jobs open and sort of get to feel it out that said before we talk about the machinations going on here on a human level. I feel for him because this is year five he has. I think three young boys who are Brooke. They've made Brooklyn their life. People set down roots. It's a real thing at his kids have played sports. They're they're in the right schools that he wanted to everyone so like he. Every time I see Kenny. He's just so that part of his life is so happy and now that's that's gone that has to change. He was in a great neighborhood. He grew up on Long Island. And Yeah I mean that's rough. It's it's a rejection of some kind. I think that it's impossible not to interpret in terms of timing. Yes and no right. It's a surprise we've come a couple of wins but I just. How does a coach coach when the sword of Damocles is just hanging over them as you said it's the worst kept secret in basketball? Well there there are worst kept ones that we probably should mention yet but there were their worst kept ones And and so I. I do think there's a certain point where you have. A coach becomes what is regarded as a lame duck for whatever reason good or bad. What are you? What are we doing here right like everyone knows? This is why the idea that Phil was gonNA stay. After the Knicks. The stupidest press conference in the history of press conferences was ludicrous. Like as soon as that press conference happened it was over at the players knew it was over. Fidel new was over and it was just a matter of like. How long are you going to drag this out? So let's get into why this happened Anthony Puccio and Stephan. Bondi have both tweeted versions of the players. Were Not Happy. Some players were not happy. It's it's an interesting situation because he hasn't gotten to coach the team. The team that they all envisioned Gone Kyrie. Irvings hurt again. Kevin durant spent out the whole season. Next year is the year for some reason the nets players and a variable that I think will not get talked about enough new ownership have determined that going into next year which is the most important year in the history of the nets franchise. Since when? I don't know maybe the Paul Pierce Garnett Year but like that was a big year. They traded a lot for that but like next year. This is a mega year for them. And they've determined that Kenny's not the right coach for that team without seeing them. Get to coach the team. And that's I think why this struck a Lotta people A raw nerve with a lot of people right right. I mean you want a guy to get a chance. I mean the way I'm sort of framing it in my own head is Kenny. Atkinson was the perfect coach for what they wanted to do at the time now. They've changed what they wanted to do. And I sort of with Bondi on this right like like I. If if the these the core of superstars wanted Kenny Atkinson to be the coach he probably would have stayed. I wonder I mean and look. This is only semi reported but I do feel like there was sort of a an atmosphere of. Oh in the veterans came in. You have cute little culture here. Isn't this quaint? You've overachieved? Okay and I do think it also speaks to just the power of the star and I wrote this a couple years ago. Coaches are expendable in a way players aren't and I think that's becoming more and more true. We talk about the self determination of these stars and we you know I think we mostly frame it as a good thing. These are the guys who are driving the talent of the league and for them to have more than a modicum of power. You know it's it's justified. However what are the unintended consequences of a movement and one of the unintended consequences is coaches are expendable and with rare exception? I mean I we could probably count on one. Hand the coaches who probably have are not vulnerable to the whims of their superstars. Greg probably it doesn't have any superstars Erik Spoelstra Rick Carlisle. I don't know maybe stock. Maybe duck maybe. Like doc is a superstar in his absolutely but I mean we do but we have we have to think about it right because Colli good relationship right now so it's not even issued by the way Mike Got Their good. You know. It's just I just bought in the last ten days or for a while. I was like not to get chance I was like. Hey I like to see it. And now we've seen but there are so few of these guys out there who can honestly say hey if there was discontent among the key contributors in the locker room. This guy would be fine. I WANNA be careful because it's inevitable that this is going to be laid at the feet of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and I think I'm not sure how fair that is like. I agree with what Bob tweeted. I agree with what you said if they proactively said he's our coach. He's the coach so I think it's safe to who the did not proactively say he's the guy that's than saying he's not the guy get rid of him. I don't know if they said that I have no reporting that. Says they said that? I think I think the reporting that players that were unhappy players is one hundred percent true. I don't know that it was them at the top of the unhappy player lists. I will say this. I think there's been some pleasure with some of the rotation decisions that have happened there this year but like it's a hard job. They got a lot of ball. Handlers cares liver. It was coming off the bench for Awhile. I don't think cares was unhappy about that cares fine and now he's going forty tonight. I don't think that was a problem. It's just a lot of juggling and I'm confident of this and again I want to be careful. I think the De'andre Jordan coming off the bench thing was going to be a simmering issue for a long time and not necessarily because the Andrea was out there. Like I deserve to start this at that. I don't think like the Andrea is is is like I've been critical of him as a player. He's a popular teammate. He's get along guy like I don't think he would do that. I don't think he would. I think maybe he wasn't thrilled with coming off the bench but I don't think he's going to take that out and go upstairs and be mad about it but I do think there was a sense of these. Three guys came. They did come to play together. Durant Kyrie and DJ IN DJ coming off the bench sort of limits. How much get to play together? And I don't think that's quite what was envisioned by anybody. And even if none of the three principals are like out and out mad about it an out and out agitating about it. I think it's just one of those things that everyone feels like. It's like the media is going to keep asking questions about it right like it's just GonNa be a topic that keeps coming up so I think that was when people talk about rotation. I think that one was just sort of a back burner like is this. Is this going to be tense for a while? Yeah I mean look. I think the way jarod downs. Better than the Jared Allen deserve start over Deandra does the right move. I think discord can take a couple of different forms. I agree with you like there's a difference between get this guy out of here and a non endorsement. The non. Denial denial right like the non endorsement. Is that defacto a get the sky outage it's not says that's what I'm saying but I do think Kevin Durant specifically there are eight guys in the League. Who ARE WHATEVER. The number is right. We know who they are Kyrie irvings not one of them who are so good that they single handedly drive winning singlehandedly. You have them on your team. You are in a position to be championship. Those guys if they go to the owner and say that's my coach. They are listened to Right. Could they are the most important people in the NBA? And they're precedents include. That in happened again. I I'm with you. I don't Wanna I don't suggesting I don't WanNA firmly state but I do look. I do believe in the spirit of this that hey if there was a movement to keep Kenny among the locker room it would happen right and and I again. There's a difference between however you're right between non endorsement and and outright rebellion. I also with you Wendy Andre in the sense that even through the tumultuousness of the clippers he was always. I think a guy who in a certain sense was it He was largely because he was a benevolent follower. Yeah right like like. He wasn't going to sow discord. He might have been unhappy here. Happy there but he doesn't have a precedent. I mean he in a in a in a world where everybody was unhappy he was at least I think measured in control about whatever unhappiness and again I just WanNa be clear like I just think it was one of many one of ten issues. That were just simmering when so when people vaguely CEO There was unhappiness about XYZ..

We're not talking about washed up do when you draft someone that high. He's proven. The only thing that hasn't proven is in the postseason because he's been hurt. I have to make that investment serve it anything yet and foles did. So I you know, I never really anyway games over five hundred as star RAFI on the Dow. Straight-sets win in the French Open semi's, improved his record against Roger Federer to six NO at Roland Garros overall. Dow leads series twenty four fifteen yet afterwards. The Spagna was very magnanimous when he called better get ready for this Michael the greatest player in history, his it. All right. You know, we're frankly I wrestle with this one, because there are a lot of indicators out there that say, yeah, Federer's the best player in history. But then he's Owen six and at the French Open against the doll. I mean, his peer has the whole run, and he's and the dollars fourteen and two on clay against Federer. I mean, I don't know what to say about this. I don't know if I wanna go all the way back to rod labor because I think that's the only person I feel truly comfortable putting in the category with Federer. I'm not gonna say the dog because he hasn't mastered, all the surfaces, although doll federal hasn't mastered clay comes to the Dow, so I still struggle with this. What about you? Well, here's my thing federal has won once at the French Open, and he didn't have to be RAFI on the Dow to one on federal home turf ace, which is Wimbledon playing on the grass, he's one there twice any beat Roger there now Roger has got more majors. He has twenty majors Raphael has seventeen by the way your. Vich has filled. So they're all right hard. That's, that's the hard thing. The doll has dominated the series when they've played on clay any beat him at Wimbledon. That's what makes it tough any s twenty. I'll tell you what. It's a small group to me talking about Federer. And again, Rod Laver, we're going back going back, fifty plus years now, most people can't even imagine run, walk to their living when they wouldn't even have in his new, we is. But sorry kitties. Some of us are not going to forget about all time greats who are all we never mentioned San Francisco more. That's how good these three in this San francis-.

And the end of Dallas kaikal free agency, exile, the two thousand fifteen American League Cy Young winter has agreed to a one year thirteen million dollar deal with the Atlanta Braves.

"Free agent or two including zoom ably kyri Irving, Frank. This is pretty ambitious stuff. Do you expect? The nets will be full. Fill their ambitions, Sean marks general manager is a pretty smart guy showing marks doing all this without knowing that he might be getting one of these guys, I have to believe that he knows something. Then that's the way that all this time to finally have a first round pick of their own and other early trading away something's up and I'll tell you this, Michael, I love to towns over from Kyrie Irving and the last week. I've had more people come up to me, and tell me I saw Kyrie Irving. I there's more career having citing his. And people are convinced that he's come into the Brooklyn s remember this though, Lakers have money, clippers have money the nets have money to get to. And when the Knicks traded Chris presents ended that believing they can get to. Maybe those two will be Kevin Durant, and Kemba Walker. But from all indications that looks like Kyrie Irving is going to the Brooklyn nets. Well from coast to coast, you there whereas right, under your nose, apparently, and all the way out here. I mean, that's what we're hearing. That's what current players. Former players executives, you know, agents, everybody's talking about, is, you know, I would just say this we're talking about the nets fulfilling their ambitious and shuts on marks, I really think seems to have a handle on what is he's trying to do, but I must say this. They have another guy with kyri who's going to be a leader. Okay. And that's an important thing. I don't think Irving can be the number one player can't be one. It can be one be if you will is proven that and there's nothing about what he's done. This time. In the NBA where he can be seen as a leader. And he wasn't in college basketball long enough about eleven games to choose to leave at any level that matters. So there's got to be another guy the Brooklyn nets feel. They have on the hook in order to fulfill. These ambitions of my well, they're gonna shoot for the stars. The Kevin Durant, or Kaleida. Join Kyrie Irving. Maybe it'll be somebody like device, but follow the bouncing ball, Michael Cairo Irving ended up in Boston, because the Celtics acquired all those assets from the Paul Pierce, Kevin, Garnett trade with the Brinkley, those use some of those assets, I right now, you may end up with the nets unbelievable circle for amazing how it all works out. All right. All of Boston led by Bruins head coach Bruce, Cassidy is screaming foul today. Following the Saint Louis blues to one winning game five, the decisive goal came seconds after the blues Tyler Bosak trip. Noel, Chari who hit his head on the ice and was taken out of the play. Michael the NHL refused to comment on what it says a judgment call while Cassidy call the fish..

"So I'm not getting on the subway. So I got to get stuck in traffic if I want to go to the Barclay center, but the fans that show up to the block they said probably don't have to deal with that. So if you are the New York Knicks this nightmarish that twenty three games better than you in the win column that a Brooklyn nets. They've got leadership up top. They got a damn good coach. They got a damn good roster. Not what stars has don't forget and bowl and about a way God, and they got cap space getting very getting I'm getting the Knicks have always run unopposed in New York in the NBA. There's never been another New York team. The nets were in jersey by the time they were in the NBA, the Netzer Brooklyn. Now Brooklyn the first major league franchise so to speak in Brooklyn since the dodgers and giants left in the late. Fifties. I think you guys are underestimating what I said I would love to believe when guys say they pick a situation to win. So it seems like if you're going to New York you will go to the net. It seems like if you go into LA you will go to the clippers based on these teams who are ascending without a superstar level player. But now we're in the air of trying to secure likes win air of trying to secure follows. And usually that happens when you go with the bigger brand. And I'm trying to tell you you ever is Rulli. Big name players the sad to bolt to those cities..

"He just been extremely mature and professional with his approach throughout the entire season. In team do anything for him after the all star selection was now, obviously we are all extremely excited from. I think we most of us found out when we were on the plane going from San Antonio tour Landau. And so you know, we were just obviously extremely excited. You know, we're excited for Rhody and Jarrett do playing in the rising stars game as well. Yeah. It's pretty awesome. Just the fact that you've seen somebody put in so much work. And like I said I've seen him since this summer has focused his attention to detail about professional. His approach has been you know, he's very deserving obviously with well. He's played. But more importantly, just for where he's you know, kind of worries come from with his approach. He's earned it. Get to the breaking news at terrorists. Look in in practice today. I gotta be honest. I actually didn't practice, but he from what I heard. Looks great and was moving really well him and Alan bullet. You know, I don't know exactly what the timetable is on them. You know, obviously, there's no reason to rush guys back that are coming back from fairly significant injuries. But obviously when when they are back. I mean, we're extremely excited about it. Just to add, you know, more of a healthy bodies to to the roster and guys that are are big time players for us. It was funny because when when Kerris went down, I think the overall assessment was that cares was the nets best player at that moment. And since that time Spencer really emerged the Angela's now in all star. Yeah. Terrorists coming back to that. As the guy who has the skills to be among your best players, clearly definitely and can defend multiple positions. All that. I mean to strengthen your yourselves that this moment secure that playoff spot is is incredible. This huge is really is. You know, we, you know, obviously, we went from being an extremely difficult position with guys going down. But like I said the opportunity present. It'd allowed guys to really step up and absorb different roles. And now we're in a fortunate position where we get these guys back and just add to what we've already built on. How many games did you play with the kitten charge? Your basketball reference page is nothing, but a long list of you being sent down and recall. Yeah, I don't know. How many of are just practice days were they had quite a bit. If you play too. I did play. Yeah. I play. I didn't. I played probably I don't know. Maybe like ten fifteen games or so was that meaningful that it do anything for you? Well, yeah. Oh my gosh. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, so when you're when you're in in the midst of the grind of the NBA season, especially when I was in Cleveland, you know, obviously, I was playing a little bit early on. But I wasn't really in a position to learn through a lot of mistakes I made mistakes. I was coming out. You know, we were a championship caliber team. And if you weren't playing championship caliber basketball, you just you're not going to be in. And for me, I guess from a development standpoint sort of selfishly there. There's no benefit to me. I mean, there has been a fit to me sitting and watching and objectively just learning. But there's another thing to have the experience of being able to play, and, you know, going even just practicing in canton. And then playing in the games was extremely beneficial for me for my development. You know, some really coaches our they're actually a lot of guys in the NBA. Now, you know, whether it was, you know, the strains coach trains coach at the time that I was there is now a strength coach in Charlotte. You know, Jordan Fernandez is an assistant with the nuggets. Mike bts is an assistant in Orlando. So guys are you know, they themselves have have planned significant roles in the NBA. And I learned a lot just being there from good good coaches. Good people. Good organization. I looked this up because I was curious the the NBA finals in two thousand fifteen. Yeah. Eleven seconds. You played the last eleven seconds of game seven. Yes..

"They might as well, man. Make it a family affair. It's their town. I want to get into some other stuff. But actually, you mentioned it. So I do I want to ask the promotional video. You guys did to try to get you into the three point test itself was a work of art there. How many eggs did you break? How how many oranges did you bruise? That looked like a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. The eggs were were tricky one. They actually hard boiled them initially had me shoot the Harbaugh they into the pan. And then we dropped a normal egg into the pan and kind of like, you know, Photoshop together. But there are a couple couple MRs in my apartment had some eggs splattered all over the place, which was funny. The oranges was the easiest one. Definitely I actually didn't miss any of those surprisingly. And the only thing was you know, you take a couple of practice runs. You're going to have like twelve oranges. You're ended up buying that you pretty much useless because they guy they're all beat up. That was great. And then I I don't know how much movie magic is behind this the shot over the Oculus that that that was all movie magic right there. I wish I could shoot it over the Oculus. But yeah that that and the tip jar. I needed a little help on that. And you know, thankfully, the nets media department can work their magic on that a little bit. Yeah. No kudos to the FX. People spend whoever whoever did the the ball over the Oculus. They definitely made a little bit of the good is hilarious video. That was fantastic. And it worked you're in the story of the nets season. And of this of this moment in time for the nets is very much one of you know, the overachievers it seems like there there's this the narrative that has emerged, and I think for good reason is a team that obviously had a very difficult run. The last few years just trying to recoup players talents just build it back up again. And you guys are in a phenomenal position right now very much in the in the mix for the playoffs. And to an extent you are the meal. Do you are you are the perfect representation of that? Because you like Spencer Dinwiddie like some others on this roster were either passed over or cast off at at some point. That's easy for us to write as a narrative as reporters who covered the NBA is does it feel the same even within these walls here at the nets facility like it is that persona something that is tangible as it disgust that there's a common thread. Running through a lot of us. Yeah. I think you know, you look back when Sean I took the job, obviously, they didn't have any picks. They had to get creative with how they're going to bring on younger players to the organization, obviously, you're trying to find guys that you think, you know, maybe we're overlooked at one point or another still have a second chance. But then do they fit the culture of what what they're trying to build here. And you know, every young player that they've bought in across the board, including myself, I think has fit just called truly more than anything else. You know? They're about the right stuff professional of Ziguinchor. A you know worker tail off to prove yourself a little bit of a chip on your shoulder so to speak. You know, when you get a guy a group of guys that are collectively like that. You know, you're building a solid foundation. And that's kind of where we started. And what we've built on is it actually discussed like have you ever treated notes Spencer? Did what he of course. Yeah. Cut a couple of times. You were you know traded and then cut Dangelo Russell number two overall pick. So came into the league with with all of the expectations and hype and the Lakers. Look, there's a fifty reasons we could say that made the trade, but it comes right down to it..

"Bleacher report. My guest today is heading Charlotte soon to compete in the three point shootout. Yes, that is Joe Harris of the Brooklyn nets. He'll be taken on the curry brothers, and some others and representing the Brooklyn nets. Yeah. The nets one of the feelgood stories of the NBA season felt like it was overdue to bring on somebody from the franchise. I know a bunch of you have been requesting that of heard from you and apple podcasts in the comments section there and on Twitter folks, clamoring for somebody from the nets because this has been one of the better stories in the NBA this season, clearly the Sacramento Kings out west similar, and I feel overdue to get somebody from the kings on here. But the nets are just a fascinating. And I kind of want to go into this real quick before. I bring on Joe Harris because I think it's been lost. Just how incredible their turnaround has been it was only a couple years ago. They were deemed the most hope. Franchise in the NBA. I think by ESPN, and it was totally justified. Right. They they not only had no talent in the wake of the tear down of that. Joe Harris, Joe Harris. The Joe Johnson Darren Williams brook Lopez era, de unfortunate, jevon Garnett Paul Pierce trade that cost them all those picks. And so when Sean marks and Kenya Kitson took over few years ago. It was considered hopeless. Not only because they were you know, they had no talent. But they had no picks to get that talent. That was a unique situation. I don't think there had been anything like it in modern NBA history or or possibly ever to be a franchise that was that far down and with no clear path to getting better. And it's interesting to look at this. The nets were lasting in the playoffs in two thousand fifteen so it's only been three years that they've been out. And right now, they are as I record the sixth in the east twenty eight and twenty seven record and they're pretty certain to make the playoffs. And so it will only have been a three year. Really? There are five teams in the NBA folks that have been out longer most of which are not going to make it this year either. I'm gonna go through this real quick just for perspective here the Knicks and the nuggets have not been in the playoffs since twenty thirteen. So that's two years longer than the nets drought. And of course, the nuggets will make this year, the Knicks someday, but the nuggets are going to breakthrough in spectacular fashion. But those teams have been out longer. The magic have not made the playoffs since twenty twelve been in the lottery every year still no closer to the playoffs. The Phoenix Suns have not made the playoffs since two thousand ten the tail end of the Nash Stoudamire era and they've been in lottery every year and are absolutely nowhere near finally making the playoffs. And then finally, of course, the Sacramento Kings, no playoffs since two thousand six as a loan drought, folks. And again handle their picks still couldn't breakthrough and the nets with no picks under their own control traded away or given in pick swops. Are somehow here on the doorstep of the playoffs with what we got twenty seven. Or so games to go is incredible. And they've done it with mostly cast-offs and rehab projects. Their highest picked player, of course, Dangelo Russell who they got from the Lakers who were tossing them aside. The Lakers were ready to move on the nets trade brook Lopez and the pick that became Kyle. Kuzma, let's be fair. But still de ngelo Russell now all star has very much earned it. And he's. I don't even he's not even the face the franchise. They've multiple faces of this franchise because they have they have gotten so many guys who have just come here and overachieved care slivered who was their best player when he went down a couple of months ago twentieth..
