Economists surveyed by Bloomberg predict that GDP shrank by .2% in the second quarter. The Bank of England last week, forecast that inflation will accelerate past a 40 year high to more than 13% this year. It sees the downturn to last into early 2024. GDP figures are due out on Friday. Meanwhile, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway was a net buyer of equities in the second quarter, reporting $3.8 billion in purchases. The conglomerate stepped in as the S&P is 500 shared 16% in the latest quarter. Berkshire, however, made only a small dent in its cash pile given the spending spree, reporting cash on hand of just over $105 billion.

Now your top stories now coming up next, our colleagues in the U.S. are getting ready for Bloomberg daybreak, so let's check in with John Tucker. Good morning, John, what's ahead for you? Happy Monday. Well, what's in the big climate bill passed by the U.S. Senate and what's not the big climate Bill? Doctor Julie Norman is going to join us from university college in London. Also want to know what is this going to mean for the midterms, if anything, for the Democratic Party. The strong jobs date of Friday adding to the case for more fed tightening. You have to major averages and it mixed a little change on Friday, and futures were higher this morning. So what is driving stocks? Lori calvis and head of U.S. equity strategy from RBC capital markets. She's going to be along this morning to set up the trading day ahead for us. And private equities, they're in the business where they're supposed to be in the business of fixing and reshaping companies. Yet when it comes to doing it in-house, it looks like it's problem. Carlyle group says it's a chief executive officer, has stepped down. What is the significance of all this? We're going to ask Bloomberg China basic. When they are going to get their act together, and then finally, 5 states may determine if the 2024 election can be stolen. Fascinating story in the Bloomberg big take will take a deeper dive into that with Bloomberg government reporter Emily Wilkins, of this morning. Elizabeth Steven. Thank you, John. Thanks, John. Bloomberg daybreak up next, if you're listening on London DAB digital radio, you'll hear Bloomberg surveillance. Stevenson breaking lines on the terminal. Yes, that's right. This is related to SoftBank, of course, we have been talking this morning about the record net losses that the company reported in the second quarter the CEO of SoftBank now saying he's in talks to sell fortress that's on top of the group's plans to buy back up to 6.3% of their shares, a massive share buyback worth 400 billion, so that's the latest on SoftBank. Okay, back to our markets conversation, Friday's jobs numbers out of the U.S. have pushed up expectations of another mega rate hike from the fed at its next meeting later this week we're going to get another update on consumer and pursuit producer at price inflation in the U.S., as well as second quarter GDP figures from the UK. Joining us now to unpack all that is Anna titer. If European economist at UBS, thanks for joining us in the studio. I wonder whether your expectations for the fed have changed now that we've seen these jobs numbers out of the U.S.. Yes, morning. So here I'll have to refer to our U.S. colleagues analysis and they still currently expect the fed to deliver another 50 well, they expect them to slow down and go with the 50 basis point hike, but of course, given a very strong jobs report on Friday, they did flag upside risks to this expectations. Okay, well, let's talk about the picture then here in Europe, you know, we are of course listening very closely after last week's comments from the Bank of England extremely gloomy outlook for the UK will be getting those GDP figures later in the week. What tell us about what you feel your path is now for the BOE. Yeah, so following last week's meeting with slightly changed our call so we now expect the ability to deliver another 50 basis point hike in September. After that, we do think that they will slow down the pace to once again 25 basis points and deliver another to hike in November and December, so therefore they will take bank rate to 2.75 and will essentially stop there. So you see another 50 basis points out of the Bank of England in September. By the time of that meeting, we're going to know who's going to be the next prime minister at the moment. It looks most likely to be the foreign secretary Liz truss, is part of your call based on the idea that Liz truss's tax cuts will be inflationary. That's more affecting meetings beyond September because we know that the Bank of England reacts to what has been announced by the government and it seems that the timeline for a new announcement given that the next meeting is on 15th of September is a quite short, so it's more on the basis of inflation data and probably lack of science of easing in inflationary pressure. I mean, I know that it enters into the forecast. I always wonder how much the military policy committee takes advantage of what's likely to happen behind the scenes. Of course, Liz truss is promoting this Bank of England mandate review some of her saying that that will be changing nominal changing the inflation target to nominal GDP. Given how hard that is to measure given that we're in the midst of an inflation crisis, how worrying is that to you. That's definitely wearing and not least because if we look at the UK GDP data, we know that it's been revised many times and revisions are quite significant. We still need to see more details of the plan at this point, we think it's a bit too early to say, but that's definitely something that we would be worried about. Meanwhile, Anna, UBS has been serving businesses across Europe about their sentiment, of course, very difficult time looking into that winter ahead, particularly on the energy front, what did you learn from your survey? Yeah, so we survey around 500 corporates across four largest years on countries of Germany, France, Italy,

"The nationals have lost 5 straight and 7 of 8 after getting blown out in Philadelphia 13 to one to fall on the wrong end of a series sweep in which the nets were outscored by the Phillies, 36 to 12 Dave Martinez. After the first day, which I thought played well, we could game got cut short because of rain, and then the last three games were just not fun. But they always wanted the best. Okay, till today, but we'll always be behind, and it was tough from morale. Do the best we can to keep these guys going, keep Duncan's positive, but I mean, we're always behind, so we gotta start scoring first and getting some better starting pitching. That includes rookie Corey, Abbott, who earned the loss after giving up 7 of those runs and all four home runs. The Orioles were also routed by a Pennsylvania team taking an 8 one beating from the pirates to snap a 5 game win streak. The mystics had a 13 point comeback fall short at home.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn Discusses Widespread FBI Corruption
"Few days, you've seen reports of more than one whistleblower from inside the FBI and the DoJ. I'm confessing to the fact that conservatives are being targeted inside the bureau and outside the bureau, how worried should the average citizen be that these agencies have now become enforcement arms of the Democrat party in the Biden administration? Well, what you have to look at is as I told him today when I opened my remarks, Tennessee has come to me all the time. And they feel like there's two systems of justice, two different tiers. And the FBI will go after parents who show up to the school board meeting. And if you listen to the testimony and the response he gave us today, you will notice he didn't always use the term investigate. They like to say they are not investigating parents. What he did use was to talk about auditing assessing and then investigating. So it appears that they are net can be cast wider if they're auditing or assessing an individual or a situation without opening a full investigation. So these are all things that we were supposed to have him for two grams of questioning. We ended up just having one round of questioning because he said he had a plane to catch. So we're having to submit for answers and get those answers in writing.
Fresh "Nets." from BTV Simulcast
"Children. Hong Kong is reducing quarantine for inbound travelers starting Friday, arrivals will spend three days in a hotel quarantine that's down from 7 days and after that they'll be subject to four days of health monitoring at home or in a hotel with some restrictions to movement.

Pelosi Trip to Taiwan Tests China’s Appetite for Confrontation
"By far the most powerful country in the world in military terms. Without any doubt. But with a home court advantage off China's coast, China has put massive resources into anti fit missiles interceptors and submarines precisely in order to be able to kill an American fleet in proximity to their coast. Their land army is terrible, peel of people's liberation armies, maybe the worst land army in the world. But their missile corps is excellent. And the studies from the air force and the Rand corporation and the office of net assessment, which I used to do some work for a Pentagon. Say that those missiles are extremely good. Now, you can argue about whether you contract moving the ship 800 miles off the coast if it's maneuvering. Can you really hit it well? The Ukrainians managed to sink the Russian flagship, the Moscow, hundred kilometers off their coast and at the Ukrainians can do it the Chinese who, after all, did put a space landing craft on The Dark Side of the Moon, probably could be able to do it. So the risk of a kinetic engagement against Chinese missiles and the possible loss of a carrier with 8000 American sailors and all of our prestige, as you say, is not a risk that we want to take. The
What's Happening to German Cities in the Wake of the Energy Crisis?
"The Germans are major smart asses. Now, I catch myself, of course, 'cause I'm making a generalization, but the point I want to make is that the German political class, by the way, no different here than the French political class. As a certain arrogance, both about itself and also about America. By the way, you see a little glimpse of this just a metaphor for it if you will is in the film Casablanca where of course the German officer who's in Casablanca is talks about the American goes, those bungling Americans. And the idea here is that the Americans are naive, they're unsophisticated, though fools, and then of course the French policeman goes well. If you remember the last time the Americans bungled into Berlin at the end of World War I. So the and of course that happened again at the end of World War II. The point being that the Germans are not quite as smart as they think. And yet they're always snickering at America. And of course, when Trump told the Germans, he said in effect of the Angela Merkel team, look, you know, the problem with the Nord stream isn't just that you're making a deal with the Russians, but what comes with the deal is a dependency on Russia. You're not going to be dependent on them at their permission, if you will to get your oil through the Nord stream pipeline. And the Germans were like, it has Trump. Such a fool, you know, all he knows is how to build a building. What does he know about geopolitics or the relations between Europe and Russia? And of course, what's happening now is exactly what Trump predicted. Namely, the Russians are squeezing the Germans. How are they doing it? Well, they basically decided to choke the Nord stream pipeline to send a tiny portion of the oil through the pipeline and the net effect of it is, and now reading from a headline, quote German cities are going dark.
The Schumer-Manchin Tax Increase on Everyone
"Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal this money has an editorial. The Schumer mansion tax increase on everyone. Majority leader Chuck Schumer wants a Senate vote on his partisan tax deal with Joe Manchin as early as this week. And no wonder he wants to rush it through. The more Americans learn about it and what's in this tax and spend behemoth, the more they will dislike it. Start with the author's central claim that the bill reduced the deficit and thus inflation. The pen Wharton budget model, which senator Manchin has been known to watch, examine the details of the shimmer and Manchin Bill and found it doesn't contain any net deficit reduction until 2027. Quote the impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero through 2031 says the Penn Wharton modelers. We don't agree with those who think deficit reduction leads in a straight line to lower inflation, but that's what the Democrats claim for their bill. If the first deficit reduction doesn't come for 5 years, where's the help on inflation today? The 200 and 327 billion in new taxes could slow inflation at the economy falls into recession. And that may be the quiet expectation the journal continues. The tax increases on business will discourage investment while the Federal Reserve is also raising business costs with higher interest rates. But tax policy should be working in the opposite direction to encourage investment when the fed is tightening in the economy as close to recession. Evidence is emerging that the new shimmer mansion 15% minimum tax on corporate book income is especially harmful to U.S. manufacturing firms. And analysis by Congress's joint committee on taxation, hardly a nest of supply ciders, found that 49.7% of the tax would hit U.S. manufacturers.
Sebastian Welcomes Captain Henry Hendrix (Ret.) to the Show
"End studio captain Henry J Jerry Hendricks, U.S. Navy retired. Welcome in studio. It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having me, doctor gorka. So we had a super fun discussion. I think we bought everybody around us because we got into the nitty Gritty of national defense, the navy personnel, very, very rapidly at this little soiree. Tell our audience, who you are, what's your background and what you have done in and out of uniform to serve this nation? Well, I joined the navy in 1988 out of an ROTC scholarship at Purdue. I served in the P three community doing maritime patrol and reconnaissance. I flew in Saudi Arabia during desert storm. I flew over Yugoslavia during the 1990s doing maritime surveillance over land doing ISR. And then 9 11 occurred. I was actually here in Washington, D.C. serving with the chief of naval operations staff when 9 11 occurred. I knew a number of shipmates who were killed in The Pentagon. My career sort of changed to strategy after that. So I went back and got a master's in diplomatic history, became a strategist largely worked for Andy Marshall in the office of net assessment. Yoda. Yes, and it's a great pleasure and honor to work for that man. Ended up working for the secretary of the navy as the director of his advisory panel and then finally, because no good deed goes unpunished, I served out my last three years as director of naval history since they figured out I had a PhD. And then I retired and I worked in a think tank as ahead of a defense program and now I work as a consultant and also with the sagamore institute of think tank in Indianapolis, Indiana. All right,
Shame on You If You Vote for the Democratic Party
"On you if you vote for the Democratic Party, shame on you. You are supporting the left. Your intentions are irrelevant, the results are apparent every day, every single day. The left is ruining something else, the Democratic Party is the party of the left. It is not a Liberal Party, it is a left wing party. You can hate Trump all you like. That is no moral excuse for voting Democrat. If you deluded yourself by the lies that the man was a dictator when the closest we have to a dictator is Joe Biden, there's nothing I can do. You have opted to believe a lie. That's what you have done because you don't like Trump. That's it? And I understand why a lot of people don't like Trump. I don't have a feeling either way, because I don't give a damn if I like Trump. It's about as narcissistic a question as I can ask. Do I, Dennis prager, citizen of the U.S., like a politician? What the hell difference does that make? Does the politician do good or bad, net good or net bad for my country? That is the only question I ask. I never ask do I like a politician? It is of no consequence to the country or to me whether I like a politician. The preoccupation of the never trumpers with their dislike of Trump only speaks to the immaturity of their judgment.
Jim Hanson: 'Payback Is a Digital Medevac'
"About information operations. You say we have to tell the story about these people who undermine the president and the root of the people. Do we have the infrastructure? Do we have the ecosystem? I remember having discussions with good bodies of ours like Dave re boy, omniscient, when I was in The White House. And we're trying to map out who are the good journalists on our side. I mean, not politically conservative. But good. And by the end of name number 12 on my napkin in the restaurant, we're kind of like, who else is there? Are we doing enough to build the external ecosystem? I am. I know you are. But we're helping. That's the nice thing. Everyone's paying attention now. We started a project using military grade artificial intelligence to map out all the people involved in censoring the hunter's laptop story. We're expanding on it. That was a test case to show how it works to start connecting the dots. And it does that spider web connected dots thing. Well, now we're going to move that to every other area where they are attacking us and where they are using their control of the information space to stop the American people from learning anything they should learn. And we're going to start figuring out whose sources belong to who, who's leaking to who, who's the money behind this group, which is attacking us over here. And we're going to net all that together and then start dropping that in public on a regular basis. So they're not used to having us look at them. They're used to the ones using the entire media and social media and permanent bureaucracy and abusing the state power to do it against us. Well, payback is a digital medevac, and we're coming for them. Payback is a digital medevac.
Hobbled by chip, other shortages, GM profit slides 40% in Q2
"General Motors sees a dip in sales and earnings as a shortage of parts hobbles production The news from Detroit was not great GM's second quarter U.S. sales were down more than 15% and net income fell 40% from a year ago in part because the company couldn't deliver 95,000 vehicles due to a continuing global shortage of parts and computer chips Demand has been strong but production cuts continue to limit dealer inventory Last year GM made 2.79 billion from April to June this year it made 1.67 billion which beat revenue estimates but the per share earnings fell short of Wall Street expectations Nevertheless the company's annual income guidance is holding steady in a letter to shareholders CEO Mary Barra says the company's confidence comes from an expectation that global production and wholesale deliveries will be up sharply in the second half I'm Jennifer King
What Will Come From Epoch Times' New Film About January 6?
"Think can come out of this? I mean, it's just, it's hard for those of us who see this happening to know what to think or even how to hope. Well, I think what can come out of it is a real investigation. Because right now what we have with this committee, this January 6th committee, the net, they're not a real investigative committee. They're an aggrieved party first of all. They're the ones who claim themselves as the victims being members of Congress. How do you have an aggrieved party running the investigation into the thing that they themselves feel that they are victims of. You can't, in any normal sense of justice, you would never even allow that to happen. Nor would it be regarded as an official investigation. There needs to be a real investigation. And frankly, a lot of people who are not being charged right now should be charged. The suspicious actors, I think, should definitely be charged. And this is one of the big things I found even interviewing people who are there. People even convicted of crimes who were there. A lot of them had tried stopping people who were actually committing crimes. And I think a lot of Americans, the people who actually were committing crimes who were breaching the capitol while Trump was still speaking, those hundred plus suspicious actors who ironically, the FBI seems to have no interest in, I think a lot of Americans believe those people should be prosecuted and they want to know why they're not being prosecuted.

Ron Guidry Recalls the Bucky Dent Home Run
"Always got a big hit in the game And as the picture that started that game all I'm all I'm thinking about is all I need to do is keep this game close because I'm either going to win it or probably lose it So when I walk off the field as my team is going to be in a position to win and when I say that my goal was never to walk off the mound being one rundown That was all I wanted to do If I was one run down then my team was capable of score net one run So when Bucky stepped up in the top of the 7th inning and he popped that three run Homer of course it lifted us up and it just the heads dropped in the Boston dugout Because we had four games in a row before about three weeks before that and to have that happen when everything seemed to be going their way It was pretty pretty hard on them Now they fought back and made the game closer but we were able to win that game Yeah and then that was a one game playoff if I remember and that ironically gator That was your 25th win that season right You got the win in that game correct I did Yes I did Just how it turned out All of those wins wouldn't have mattered if we wouldn't have won that game because if we don't win that game we don't go anywhere Yeah that's right That's it We win that game We win the playoffs We win the World Series So it made that year much more special because of the outcome But
Hatred for America Has a Net Effect
"We definitely saw the hatred for America on 4th of July You have things like for 43 or four 33 years rather You've got the NPR has read the Declaration of Independence on the 4th of July They didn't do it this year instead what they decided to do was talk about racism And in regard to racism and they're constantly focusing on our sins not our wins That has an effect You've got people like Kim Kardashian tweeting or Instagram story saying the 4th of July has been canceled due to a shortage of independence sincerely women I mean she had a sex tape And became a billionaire I think of all people she should be a little bit grateful also in a society that a woman like her could become a billionaire off of a sex tape But the point is look we see so much of this cultural reinforcement of hatred for America not patriotism in America and that does have a net effect I mean you are what you consume as a society and if what we are consuming is not patriotism but hatred for America that's going to have an impact And it already has You look at Gallup polling recently and only 38% of Americans are extremely proud to be American Now I'm one of those 38% I am proud to be an American I love this country Are there a foundation need fixed hang sure Are there things that we needed to do Sure But we can do that We can do that I mean think about it in life If you woke up every single day of your life and you said you know what It's going to be a crappy day Yep nope this day is going to suck Yep definitely going to suck It's probably going to suck right A lot of this is what you reinforce It's a conditioning It's a reinforcing and it's intentional because the whole point of the left is that they can get you to America They can get you to question it They can get you to see this country as not great Then it's a lot easier to burn it to the ground
Are Republicans Sabotaging the Red Wave? With Rich Baris
"What if I told you Republicans might be messing up the inevitable? A lot of people think a red wave is a sure thing, but we didn't fix our elections in many states. And we have some major problems, everybody. And Richard barris is the one that is trying to pull the fire alarm, ring the bell and say the British are coming. Let's see who listens. Richard barris is with us right now, Richard. Welcome back to the program. Aged Charlie, thanks for having me back. As always, thanks good to be here. So the generic ballot is tightening, tell us what's happening and why it's happening. So it is tightening. That is real. So, you know, there are some out there that are having it hold around Republican plus 5 or 6 others that are now down to two or three. That would still look any Republican popular vote. Victory is a gain. I do think it's a foregone conclusion at this point that Republicans are going to take the house. They're so shy away, even with redistricting, they are favored to net if you seats. But I mean, Charlie, with the president as unpopular as he is. And by that, historically unpopular. Since Truman, nobody has been more unpopular this early in their first term as Joe Biden. He is the most unpopular new president in modern American history. Right track wrong track is historically negative. These are all the metrics in the indicators that really matter most to forecasters, economics matter as well and there are abysmal. Now, there's caps because, you know, some districts Republicans just don't have a prayer and just like Democrats don't have a prayer in some districts on normal. Under normal circumstances as well. But what they're doing right now and what we're seeing in these battleground districts is it's real convenient to blame abortion. It's real convenient. To blame the January 6th committee, whatever it is that you want to you want to blame. The fact is Republicans are starting to say things to me like, what's the point? They're all the same.

A highlight from Creating Worshipers
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. There were behind the veil. In everything that you do, do you do it as a worship to the lord? I'm Ron, your host, and on this podcast, we'll discuss how our work is to be an expression of worship in how we can impart this to the younger generations. In modern day Christianity, one of the things that people separate is their life church and their life at work, or their life at their vocation, or life at school. What God is looking to do is take us to the place where in our lives everything is done unto him. Right. Exactly. Yes. Everything we do is a worship. So if you have a walk with God and you are in Christ Jesus, and then you go to work in the morning, and you feel like the work you're doing may be menial, it may be very intricate, so what do we do? Do we shift gears? Or do we continue to carry with us? What I do with my hands is a blessing to the lord and worship, because we come to that place where we put him first. The Holy Spirit leads you to find out how to worship through your vocation. That you become a complete person. In God, you become a complete worshipper. Yes. Right. It's so true. It takes what could be a mundane, boring, vocation, and at all of a sudden brings a light to it. What can we do? We can break out of that prison of boredom. My focus is on loving the lord. And that's where I keep it. Our lives can be directed to find that place of exalting the lord in all we do. The realization of this gave me a new respect. For the things that I thought were menial, my poorly educated people, and made me turn away from that kind of thinking of putting anybody down. Now I have a greater respect. For that guy who came and mowed my lawn or came and helped me out with some plumbing or something like that. And it makes me a lot more open to what God is doing. All over the earth. You know, our work is supposed to be an expression of worship to the lord. So he gives gifts to man, so that we can express our worship using the gift SETI gifts to us. I had a vision many years ago, and I saw buying a property roughly 40 acres, and then connecting with families and people around the region the area, you know, that are close proximity. And I just envisioned, I said, okay, let's get together and let's build a basketball court to start with. Well, how do you build one? What are the specifications for a basketball court? The exact length and width, where the free throw line is supposed to be, how far half court actually is, you know, get all the correct dimensions, and that would be one phase is part of the research and finding out how to do it. And then go into the fact of, okay, now we know what it's supposed to look like. How do we do it? Now you've got to get somebody who knows how to pour concrete, and then, of course, then you also have to put the posts on each end, and you have to put basketball nets up, no good to play basketball without the nets. So they had to find out how big is the backboard. How, you know, the ten foot mark, where is that ten foot mark on the hoop? And get children involved with that design phase. I'm not really wanting to get adults. They can be involved, but it's about the kids. It's all about kids. And that's kind of the principle, the initial principle, is get an idea, find out what it takes for the design work, and then find out what it takes for the construction, and then the finality of actually finishing the project. And it is the coming together and teaching young people how to do every potential or every probable aspect of where they are going to want to work when they grow up. We have construction. You have the electrical, the plumbing. You have drama. You have people operating a camera, you know, for people doing drama. You have the sound technician, the lighting technician. You can teach these young people every aspect on every one of those and they get they can choose, where they want to spend the rest of their life in what field. Bring in the young people and let them be responsible. Let them do it, we can answer questions. But let them do their doing and if I had the means, I would still do it. Yeah. On one level or one aspect, you're opening the door for children or young adults to learn or to try different things and to find out what they like with their good at, what they don't like, which is a pretty big deal. On the other hand, I would say that if it was done correctly, it would have to be done because there's relationships being built. Correct. To me, the point is not teaching the children or opening the door for them to learn something. Yes, that's important, obviously. But more important is the importation and the relationships that's being built in the process of learning all that. So you have men and women of God that have reached into the lord and become something in God. And now you need an avenue for them to be able to impart that rather than sitting in a church service and trying to impart it. Yep. How much more effective is it if you're doing something like you're talking about where you're working alongside young people and you're teaching them or helping them learn different trades, different aspects of what you're talking about and at the same time what's happening is you're creating relationship with these children you're imparting to them the ways of the lord, you're imparting them, not just knowledge of the drama, but you're imparting an integrity, you're imparting the thinking of the lord that was imparted to us, so you're really giving them a walk with God. You're opening the door for them to walk with God. Through relationship and I think that's that vision is awesome because if that was the intent behind it, in other words, it's not just a college or a school, they can go anywhere to do that kind of stuff. Right. More than even just a hands on facility, it is who's in that facility? Well, it's men and women of God that have something to impart to a younger generation. What we're talking about is the foundation that should be in every person that walks with God. It's the very foundation that we live for is to be worshiping the lord in everything we do. It sure isn't limited to church. Everything we do, whatever profession we're in, it is to be a worship to the lord, because our life is a worship. That's the foundation that Allen's talking about laying for the children. So in other words, to me, that's very exciting because how many places do you know on the face of the earth that can open the door for children to have a walk with God other than church? This is why people turn on and turn off their walk with God, supposedly. They go to church and then they turn off their walk with God, and they go to work, or they spend the rest of their life, do whatever they do with the rest of their life, because there has to be this deep revelation that God's not just in church, he's with you 24/7. Correct. And children need to have that revelation. If you can train a child in the way he's to go when he's young, he's not going to leave. And so if we would have a facility that would was doing what gallus talking about, opening the door for children or young adults to learn different professions and you have people that have had this importation this foundation of worship in their lives, that's a huge, huge thing, and it's enabling them to find God in a different atmosphere. Lord, what do you want me to be? It's amazing when you start asking that question, God will answer it. And he answers it usually to ways. He will place a desire in your heart for that, and he will give you the ability. Right. Yeah. If we see that growing up and we minister it to our kids, it makes it a smoother transition and growing up. You don't go through all the the wondering, well, what am I going to be when I grow up? And all the frustration that teenagers have in young men and women have. Well, I tried this and I tried that. Well, why don't you seek the lord? And find out what he wants. That is where the big reward comes is when God speaks to you and you say, yes. And the main thing we want to do is give him worship. And give them worship out of what we're doing with our hands, or our minds, because the cry of our heart is a worshipper, is giving back to God. No matter what I'm doing, to do what is unto the lord. So, through this podcast, we've seen that whether at work, play, church, in all that we do. We do it as a worship unto the lord. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life.

Dinesh Reviews the Latest Supreme Court Decision Taming the EPA
"The EPA has been writing all these rules to fight climate change, and they're basically one thing they're trying to do is make it almost impossible for the coal industry. The function in this country. And the way they do this is they take the clean air act, which was passed by Congress, and they expanded in such a way that it enables them to pass all kinds of rules that set certain emissions and put caps on how much emissions can occur. The net effect is we are almost you may say deliberately killing a major industry in our own country and doing it in the name of climate change. So this goes to the Supreme Court and it goes to the Supreme Court on the part of plaintiffs who say basically listen. Yes, there is a clean air act. But the clean air act was passed long before this climate change hoopla. Moreover, the Congress delegates to the EPA, the authority to clean up the air. And the EPA does have the right to make rules consistent with that delegation of power. But no, the EPA can't just say, well, since we have a clean air act, we're not going to take all these new issues of climate change, the oceans are rising, the temperature is going up, the global temperature, and we will now declare ourselves. The enforcer of this climate change ideology, and the court goes, where's your authority to do that in the clean air act? I'm now going to read from the court's decision. When Congress seems slow to solve problems, it may seem natural that those in the executive branch might seek to take matters into their own hands. But the constitution does not authorize agencies to do this. It goes on to say they can not be quote substitutes for laws passed by the people's representatives. In other words, an agency of the executive branch can't just decide what Congress can pass a law. Well, that's okay. We'll sort of make the law ourselves

"They built the double digit we in the first half run. Go as well. But his impact was immediate. How'd you think he looked out there? You were there in person. He looks like rob. He really does. Throwing down a lob, making the rotations defensively. He got inside on Bruce Brown once on a, you know, one of those short row attempts by Brown, this is the play where Blake kind of dropped the ball and Brown ran it back for a dunk. That was robbed in my opinion. Fill in the lane and being an intimidating presence in there against ground. Now offensively, I think it's gonna take a little while because timing and verticality and those sort of things are what get him buckets. And that's all off right now just from being out for so long. But in terms of just being a presence and a defensive force, I thought he was right back to who he was. It's limited, John. It's a very all you wanted to see was him play and not look scared and be able to move. Everything else was gravy. You're building towards something big. Give me those digits. What's up? Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll see you later. Y'all have no idea about Joe sway's game y'all. And I'm gonna just leave it right there. By the way. Speak on this, right? So you really don't want me to do that, Joe. Where's the Joe sway banner? You just make, you just pan that camera to your left or yeah, you're left. I thought I'm using myself, but I guess I know, hey, all right, yeah. So I got a bunch of girls. Hey, ladies, just keep it down. Show us almost over. I guess we're going on over here. And my girls had like 3%. So I got here just in time, and then. And the show, Joseph. 7 guys, 7 guys, he was in a nut with. Those are Jimmy's girls. Keep it down. So rob looked good. I'm still a story of the game. The story of everything for me is the absolute destruction of the nets. And watching KD and I mean barring, you know, game one with Irving, but watching Kyrie and KD absolutely shit the bed on such a big stage here is so surprising and so interesting. They might get blown out, John in game four. Bailout, we don't want to go to Boston. If the shots don't fall early, they're done. They're done. They're going to pack it up. Tells me they're going to fight for a and you know what? Do you guys think there's any chance Simmons plays? They should just play Simmons. No. Punishment for Simmons. Durant. Durant should sit in a clown suit and let Simmons play 40 minutes tomorrow on Monday. I mean, that's not what happened. I wonder if simmonds, I mean, is he even stood up for this team next year? I don't know what, I don't even want to talk about him. I don't waste anywhere breathing. Oh yeah, you said that like a half hour ago too. I don't want him to talk. We've wasted a year. This probably ends on Monday. We'll be back here and then we'll have a little break. You know, after that, so again, thanks for joining us. We dug it. We're back in two days. There's no more three days off here for that game. And that might be it. It might be a little break after that. So anybody predicting this series.

"And you may have figured out that, I don't need to empty my really quality bullets on this team. I can go with the stuff that is okay for us, but not our best stuff. To me, it's like a picture that has like a 98 99 mile an hour fastball, but you know you can strike these SOBs out with your 87, 88, 89 mile an hour pitch. You don't need to send the heat. Why would you sit in your heat when you don't need to get them out with your heat? That's to me. I just want to see them again. No, I wanted to say starting life. I got a feeling. You got to feel the courage about what you saw. Yeah, I mean, he was a little out of sync on offense a bit, but I mean, defensively, I felt like he was there, you know, at least he was bouncy, you know, the alley oop and the two blocks, you know? That was vicious. Yeah, the one on Drummond at the rim was like, that's rob. And he had a couple of, he had a couple of low key plays that kind of civilized what he does. Like, you know, rob switched out at one point on a player. I think it was KD and Katie made a pass. And it led to a turnover, and that led to a layup the other end. And even though rob doesn't statistically get any credit for that, his ability to switch and not get beat forced to turn over which led to a bucket. It's little things like that that he brings to the table. Again, that's why that's what I have the best defense in the NBA. Yeah. You could see him. Well, he was lurking, and they know he's there. It makes a difference, you know? Yeah, so it does make a difference, huh, John. It does make a difference, Steve Nash, it does indeed. He's just wrong. He just long. So what happens if Ben Simmons returns in the nets win four? Will Bobby change his mind about Simmons? No. No. No. What are you doing? No, I don't think he will. You don't think he'd do the Bobby one 80? He might do the body woman again. A very long victory lap on that one..

"That's the first time I think. That's the first time. It's the first time. Welcome, everybody. Good time. Welcome. Yes. I'm gonna welcome you. It happens all the time. Real quick, but real quick. Real quick, real quick. Real quick. Meal real quick. Me real quick. Hold on, let me say something. Regular season. Ten in 5, right? Wait, wait, wait, wait, real quick. Real quick. Real quick. Hold on. Against the best defense in the NBA. That doesn't make up for going up against Tatum and brown, you know, in this new found, you know, they've seen the light now on both ends of the floor and what an example of that by Jayson Tatum in particular today, right? Man, I've never seen Tatum play defense like that. I love it. Never taken one off. You know, I asked email about it, email was just like, well, yeah, he's been doing that all season long. I'm just like, yeah, but, you know, something that's something's changed in the last couple of weeks. I got tonight in game three was the best example. Not just because he had just because he had 6 deals either. You know, it's just defense. Everywhere, man. This is like change. Go ahead, Bobby. It went to the next level because he's playing a listless team that sloppy that isn't connected that has no. And he smells it. He knows it. He knows the I mean, you saw Brown pass at one point. It was just a mess. And after a two O series lead formed after bonus 17 point lead, this is why I started to talk about sweep because when you lose in that fashion, when you have Durant playing like he did in Boston, you just started to see a team that's started to crumble a little bit in the second half of the season. One of his star players at the midway point, this all had the makings of everybody on Brooklyn just saying, maybe this just isn't our year. And we might just pack it in here and I don't think they completely packed it in here, but once they took a punch once they took two punches off those turnovers. That's the Celtics. The second half they faded. This is what's different about the Celtics over in the past is all of those runs, those punches, the Blake Griffin run, things like that. Those are normally the types of things that would tip games in the other team's favor and the Celtics wouldn't recover from them. Every single time the nets have something for them, they come right back. Every time, every time the nets got into three or four, Celtics pushed it right back to 9 in Nash's calling a timeout. Every time they have an answer and that's the best part. In fact, if they didn't get casual sometimes when they were at ten, 11, 12 points, they could have pushed this thing into the 20 point realm and proved a little bit. They did get a little passive. They did their offense broke down a little. They took some sloppy shots that were careless with the ball, but they could have, they could have, you know, they had an answer for everything the nets did. That's got to be demoralizing, too. Your Brooklyn, you think you're coming back, and then boom, you know, Brown goes around just goes off there during those Blake Griffin minutes. That's like a Cantor stint I said. Like, oh, he made a few threes, but look what's happening on the other end. And the Celtics were like, please keep shooting. The next time he got it after he made two threes, every Celtic was like, they backed up like 15 feet. They're like,.

"You can't be a team with no defensive identity and expect to win at the highest level against one of the best teams in the NBA, and that's clearly what the Celtics are with rob, without rob, rob helped a little bit tonight, but this was effectively a continuation of what they've done without them. And they're gonna sweep this series. That's just got nothing left and you saw the exhaustion set in. Blake Griffin just talked a little while ago about the spirit not being right with the nets. And he's right. Not difficult to imagine after blowing a 17 point lead in game two. Yeah, but I think that the bigger issue with this Brooklyn team besides our defense, which has been putrid this series has been future at all season. They're not getting the kind of offensive firepower that they're used to. I mean, and the Celtics have been able to neutralize their number one and number two options. And we really see that in a playoff series where a team 11 shots 11 shots for Kevin Durant. And you know what? I got some stuff to say. First off the Durant didn't come to the fourth. Exactly. And that was on the chat. Yeah, and that was question. I thought, I thought Taylor got out of a ball, but you know, I guess there was a little bit of that. But it was a little here. Anyway, Bobby, what's your theory? Is Bobby wants to go ether under ant right now? He's about to say some stuff. The first two games, I think you can credit Boston and being physical laying into him, tightening up the lane, all the different stuff we've talked about. He was passive tonight. He was passing. Indecisive too. Of the game. Just completely out of the action. Dumping off the ground whenever the pressure came, tentative, and with no real confidence in his shot too when the crowds formed around him, he looked like he lacked confidence, and that's the first time I can really ever say that about him. I don't think I can ever in his career point to a moment where he looked like this. And it was bad in games one and two. It somehow got worse here. And I thought he was just passives the word. You look like someone who was just mentally defeated. The skills are still there because if you look at his shooting, he was still a very efficient shop maker, but he didn't take that many shots. He wasn't assertive. It was almost as if he was the same look. I've been carrying this team all day. Can someone besides Bruce Bowen giving give us something? Kyrie, can you give us something other than football fans? Can you do something that can just take some of the pressure on me? Because I'm tired. And he looked like somebody just fatigued. Yeah. That spot on, that spot on. It felt like he had the body language of someone that was like, make it worth it. You know what I mean? Put me in the position to close this out or actually win a game, but until we reach that point, you know, I'm gonna just be not just passive, but sort of like almost reluctant in a way..

Anyway, hey. Line of applause for the three and O Celtics here, folks. However, I'm going to pump the brakes because Ben Simmons is returning in game four. Wait, Ben Simmons, the new dress like a clown on the sidelines tonight? That guy? Oh my goodness. He's going to change his costume and dress up as a basketball player for a game four. I don't believe it. Tell me you're not playing without telling me you're not playing. Just based off of play. Tell me just based off the tire. It's frigging just, you know. You know, like you did it, did you dressed up on a Saturday night in New York? Like, if that was the goal, then you crushed it. Yeah. And they took care of business and as Gerard blakely, so eloquently said, after game two, they snatched their souls tonight. The Brooklyn Nets, as we know them, are dead and gone. They're dead. It's just a matter of death. At this point, as a matter of fact, Brooklyn Nets Blake Griffin did everything he could to revive the nets in the fourth quarter, but jaylen Brown had other plans. And I sat me on Twitter. We officially have to talk about Jalen Brown tonight and we just did so. We're good. We're good. You were good. That's all we need. So shout out to jaylen Brown and shout out to the Boston Celtics. I will say someone tweeted that when you get those Ben Simmons moments like you're a nets team and something like that happens, he plays with energy, he ties up Jayson Tatum, you know, a couple of good hustle plays knocks down those threes. Stuff like that normally like is game changing. You know, and it turns the series. Or it turns the game. But every single time that they did that, the Celtics responded. Primarily Jalen..

"I mean, the worst case would be a tech series with the nets where KD and Kyrie just Kyrie does what he did in the 2016 finals for 7 games and KD is averages literally 45 points a game on 60% shooting. That's kind of the scenario that the nets need and so that would be a worst case scenario for the Celtics. I could also see them losing to Milwaukee for sure. Milwaukee's a great basketball team. Brook Lopez is actually looked really good. I think I would pick the Celtics in that series because they have home court advantage. And I think that that would be a grand for sure. Giannis is Giannis. And then the Conference Finals, you might face Toronto for real. I think Toronto's path to the conference finalist is pretty clear. Not necessarily thinking that'll happen, but they've played Miami really well. All season. I think they're going to beat the sixers outright. And if you learn the Conference Finals against Toronto, you got to like your chances there. Again, assuming that rob Williams was healthy. So yeah, I think Boston should get to the finals. And once you're in the finals, I think obviously you can win the title. That's why they pay me the big bucks. Yeah, I think Phoenix is gonna win it all. I know you have a losing in the first round Mike, but they just been too good for too long. Again, anything can happen at one injury changes. Everything, but if we're assuming we're assuming health for all these teams, I mean, they've clearly been the best team in the league all season. Right? Pretty easily. Can I just jump back and say, I'm being a little tongue in cheek with thinking that Phoenix is I don't want it that to be like on the record just yet. I'm getting it after this. What are you talking about? I will say real quick. Don't you guys feel like the regular season? There's like this growing divide between what matters in the regular season and what matters in the playoffs and for the sons. It's like, if a team goes small against the suns, can they go small? Will they be able to flex muscles? And stay big and just stay true to who they are. If Jay Crowder goes cold by the three point line, how much will that impact them if I don't know, something about this team where I'm just like, I'm skeptical.

"Okay, Rohan, that was a wonderful preamble to our show. We have a lot to get to today. We're going to be opening up the mailbag to discuss the play in some updates on the NBA's never ending Robert cyber investigation. LeBron's increasingly impressive body of work and so much more. But first, a quick reminder to our wonderful listeners to please keep your emails coming, open floor mail at Gmail dot com. That's open floor mail at Gmail dot com. All right, Roland, so I want to start today's show by quickly checking in with our favorite team, the Brooklyn Nets, they've looked unbeatable of late while also recently receiving some discouraging news about Ben Simmons, thanks to a herniated disc in his back. It does not sound like Simmons will be taking the floor any time soon with his new team. He has not been practicing. He has not been working out. And according to multiple reports, recently had an epidural injection to ease the pain, not good. That's not what you want if you're Brooklyn. The nets are 6 and 6 since the all star break, 25th and defense, 5th and offense. Are you crossing them off as a title contender of Simmons just misses the entire year? I'm not crossing them off only because I will never cross off a team that has Kevin Durant on it personally. Out of my deep respect fear terror admiration for Kevin Durant, I won't cross them off. But they become mortal. They become incredibly mortal. They become a flawed team without Simmons. I mean, obviously they're, you know, there's no perfect team, but the juggernaut that we thought was being created there, obviously when they first acquired even James Harden, the team, we think they can be if kairi is able to play full time without Simmons. I think that they can still win it. I just think the degree of difficulty becomes a lot harder, but I'm not crossing them off. You think they're, I think they become, it's interesting because I like South Korea a lot. He's an important player for them. So is patty mills. Obviously, so is Kyrie. We still don't really know who they're closing 5 is going to be. I have to imagine Lamarcus Aldridge is going to be in there. I just don't see them playing Kevin Durant at center in the playoffs..

"Down. Ben Simmons have resplendent in Pittsburgh penguins color Louis Vuitton hockey Jersey that was like right off the back of yarra Maria. And it was just like hanging out on the end of the bench was politely getting up in golf clapping like any run of play that was good for the nets and that was quite frequently so he was up and down from his seat a lot. The back didn't seem to be bothering him. And yeah, I think he got an earful and after the game KD was certainly like at the end of the game they were booing. They weren't saying Ben Simmons sucks. There was actually more nets fans here than sixers fans. So you got to take your medicine, but to your hardened point. I'm going to ask this knowing the answer. Do you think that this is an aberration? Or do you think that this is a cause for concern for sixers fans? I think it just highlights exactly what it is hardened. The pressure that is on harden right now, because it was, I would say it's not an aberration, I think you knew that's probably what you thought I was going to say, just because of the way that it happened to. It really just had all of the makings of a hardened playoff collapse or a hard and big game collapse. We start off with a little bit a little bit timid. And then we get into the things that I asked tactically kind of consistently happen with him where you open that game and it doesn't really matter who's guarding Kevin Durant. Although Tobias Harris can not be the answer. But it doesn't really matter. You put the Bible on him, it doesn't really matter. Bible can't guard Durant and Irving at the same time. So they're going to have to come up with something for that. No, I think he tried to jump between both and pretty much everybody else in the court today. Pretty strange, weird, crazy game from my favorite player, but you know, you get into the stuff that we see with Hardin. The nets have a lot of physical defenders, and they're actually kind of filled to the brim with guys that you'd kind of want to have guarding James Harden, right? You have Bruce Brown, you got James Johnson. Katie and Kyrie spent some time on him. And they obviously have guarded him before. They know what it's like. But pretty much like the hodgepodge of players that we have talked about on the nets, will they be able to kind of have a use for all of them in the playoffs? That doesn't really necessarily feel like a question to me in a hypothetical sixers net series because those are all the types of guys that you'd want to be able to have against harden and say, yeah, we can afford to take 6 vowels on you, which is not going to happen because we have KD and Kyrie on our team and just try to see if that's called 6 vowels on them in the playoffs. Again, and again and again, it's not going to happen. Yeah, there's a couple of things in this stats category that we will get to. I think really leap out about what the sixers were trying to do there, which I thought was kind of naive and whether we want to get into that stock's fault or the sixers fault, but yeah, I definitely picked up on that as well. Before we get on to the emotional part about it, I did want to mention one other possible storyline coming out of this. This might be actually a little bit galaxy brain, but I still want to throw it out there. Which is the nets needed this game more than the sixers. So the nets have Kyrie four more times in the regular season if the vaccine mandate rules don't change in New York City because they're playing the Knicks twice. They have a batch of home games. So they basically have four more Kyrie appearances for the rest of the regular season. They're currently at 500. They're doing fine or whatever, and I'm sure they'll make the playoffs. But I do think that this was like in the same way that the Lakers needed to beat the warriors more than the warriors needed to be the Lakers. The nets needed to beat the sixers just as badly as the sixers needed to beat the nets if not more. And I wonder if in the spin zone of the NBA, like you could make the argument that it's like the sixers are worried about. They're now 5 and two in the 6 games since harden or 7 games since harden's been traded. They're doing fine. Maybe it's even good for them to be in the three seeds so they don't see the nets coming out of the plane. There's all sorts of stuff you could say, but I do wonder whether you could say well the nets really needed that one. See, I like that you got that out of your system before we really dive into the emotions with this kind of, you have done the classic disassociation stuff. You've seen it from the other person's side. Your emotions first. And you're like, well, hey, what do I have to be worried about? Maybe the other guy should actually be worried. We call that projecting, actually. But I would play around with his take if not for the nature of this victory for the nets because they are very much a team that is hypothetical. And up until the playoffs, like they are very much going to continue to be hypothetical. We'll see when Ben's back, but hopefully those games do coincide with the games that Kyrie can actually play. But that said, the nature of this SmackDown was just a little too much to really, I don't think you can spin this one. It almost gave me shades of the rockets versus warriors. In the playoffs, the way that the game would just kind of get bogged down into tunnel vision for harden and Chris Paul and everybody else would just be standing around watching and the funny thing is they were all kind of, they run the same plays now ever since harden went over to the sixers, but the play style of the best players is what it really comes down to because the way that the nets just kind of got the sixers to get bogged down. Like there's two ways to look at it. I think if you want to spin this, the best way to spin it is just to say that the sixers really just didn't try. And we don't know why. We don't know why..

"It was the opposite I thought it was the nets kind of yeah, exactly played into Celtic strategy. I think if the nets work through the Celtic switching scheme and just ISO KD and Durant, the Celtics weren't able to stop that in the first half at all. And so that was a mistake. The Bruce Brown situation. It's actually, it's odd to me that Durant only finished was whatever he finished with. He should have been up in the 40s as well because he didn't shoot enough. There was no answer. He didn't shoot enough. He should have ten more shots in this game. And they should have consistently looked for, you know, just get the ball in his hands, let the Celtic switch and then go to work. It's not anybody's fault. There's literally no stopping him. I thought, you know, rob contested a couple shots on a switch, grant a couple of times, Tatum played him straight up pretty well. There's just no defending him. And we're really going to do like, I'm saying this in the chat again, the nets without Simmons. The nets, the nets without Simmons and the nets. Simmons has not joined the nets. That's not like a caveat on this. Bobby, if the Celtics traded for someone right now and we hadn't seen them yet, would you not be saying if it was in Simmons? We had a conversation about that. You're literally discounting him as like a person who exists. Like he's not like alive. You know, like you're just you're raising him off. You're writing him off like he's literally like Santa Claus. Like he just Bobby. There's something. Something's going to play at some point. We don't have impact he'll have, but he's going to help though. He doesn't exist. How do we know? He's going to make him worse. Would they be a better team right now? No. He wouldn't be playing. What's he playing? What's he going to play? That doesn't make him a little better than they are. Again, prior to last season's playoffs. This has flaws. Prior to last season's playoffs when he was afraid to shoot and miss some free throws. Ben Simmons was an all star considered one of the better players in the NBA. How long ago? He has that show. Everyone's talking about like, that was like long enough. 11 years ago. Like you got some better. It feels like it. Theo ratliff agent tracks dude. Is that what even 11 months ago, man? People are talking about like literally you signed somebody. You said it yourself. We all thought he was going to hit the ground running here. I think we had some questions in our mind, but I think we at least thought he was going to put on the uniform and start playing. And you said, you said it yourself. He's not ready to go. For whatever reason, he's not. And there's only what, 5, ten games left by the time he gets back. You may be right. He may not be ready. He may never be ready. He may never be close to what he'll be at full capacity. He may be broken. I'm just saying you can't say with certainty he is. All of what you're saying is possible, but I don't think you can discount it with conviction. That's all I'm saying..

"Is if we want to pass out some blame for this game. I think a lot of it's got to go to Westbrook because of and look, he made some decent hustle plays, but you can't shoot Christmas Day against the nets. You can't shoot four for 20. You can't do that. You can't miss a dunk with the game on the line. You can't do those things. He missed a number of different layups over the course of the game. You just can't do that. And again, I give him credit for the hustle plays that he made had 5 offensive rebounds. That certainly helped out. But this is the time. This is this moment right now. This is what they got Russell Westbrook for was for when LeBron is down. When AD is down to have another guy that can carry that load and rusted not do it. He was a team worst -23. -23 on the night. And again, he hustled. He tried hard, but you've got to be more efficient than this. If you're going to be considered a star level player and frankly, if the Lakers are going to win games, he's got to be better than that, especially in a big night like this on Christmas. You know all the eyeballs are on you around the NBA. You mentioned LeBron, another wasted game. You can kind of see the disappointment from LeBron James the frustration on his face. He drops 39 9 board 7 assist three steals. And look, LeBron has been guilty sometimes of not getting back on defense, if not having the energy. But look, he plays 40 minutes and at the end, the guys around him just kind of let him down. In particular, tonight, I thought Westbrook was not good. Taylor Horton Tucker, despite being 5 for 11 and four for four, not a bad stat line, but I didn't think his decision making was all that great in this game and so that was an issue as well. It was certainly a frustrating one from a number of different perspectives.

"Merry Christmas, first and foremost, although the Lakers did not give us the Christmas present that we were hoping for a comeback effort against the Brooklyn Nets, falls short, joining me to help break it down. Chris the masterpiece masters welcome back man. And Merry Christmas, dude. Yeah, Merry Christmas, Trevor. I believe it or not, I'm actually really excited to be on despite the finish. That was a tough game, but honestly, Trevor, I know we're going to yeah a lot to talk about. It's been a while and again, Merry Christmas, but it's been a difficult season as I'm sure every Laker nation or Lakers fan can attest to. I mean, this has been crazy, it's been hard to even look forward to games. And I just, I got a lot of dancing to do throughout the show and I don't want to do it all here. So yeah, anyways, good to be back on. Difficult game. Well, this is certainly the place for. This is where people come to vent a little bit after a tough loss. This is now 5 losses in a row for the Lakers. This looked bad for a long stretch, and then the Lakers gave us hope we thought, oh, they're really going to come back and they're going to do this. Oh, no, no, they're not. They're not. They tied it up at one point late in the fourth quarter, but then the nets went on another little run and the Lakers could not answer and they wind up coming up short in the end. Let me go through some of the stats before we dive into this game and get into some of the venting. But we've got for the Lakers 39 points for LeBron 9 board 7 assist three steals one block 14 to 25 shooting and played 40 minutes. 40 minutes and they could not get the job done and a lot of that. I mean, I hate to say it but Russell Westbrook four for 20 shooting, including the mist dunk at the end that ultimately sealed their fate four for 20 shooting from Ross 12 boards 11 to 6, so he got the triple double 13 points for him on the night but not an efficient performance at all the turnovers he kept down only three turnovers, but my goodness four for 20. That's not getting it done THT 5 for 11 from the field 14 points. 17 for Carmelo Anthony to go along with 11 boards for assist two steals three blocks, saw the night for him, but shooting the ball not great 6 for 15, Malik monk returned.

"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.

"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..
