"Sports line now, here's Stephen. It was a weekend of rest for the Golden State Warriors as they had Saturday and Sunday off after going winless on their 5 game road trip. Now prior to Friday night's loss against the New Orleans pelicans, head coach Steve Kerr announced that he would be resting four of their starters, seeing as they already played the night before. As for Klay Thompson, this may be a common occurrence during the season. We've got a couple of guys who were going to be really careful with on back to backs all year. Clay may not play in a back to back all year. He didn't last year because of two straight season ending injuries. Back to back referring to when the warriors play two nights in a row, and as Kerr mentioned, this was the game plan for Klay Thompson last year, but it is worth noting that when he did return, draymond green was also out due to injury and with this approach, the warriors went into the postseason with nearly the entire roster healthy. As for this year, the warriors went into the season at full strength, but they want to preserve that health of the players until the end of the season. You hate being on the road and not playing for the away fans because they want to see us out there, especially defending champs. So never sits right with me, but I also understand that we have a huge goal and that is winning a championship. That was Klay Thompson speaking yesterday after practice about the news that he would be rested for certain games. Maybe it's not full throttle just yet, but as the season wears on and I get in that peak physical shape, which I'm very close to, it would be nice to plant some of those. Maybe not all of them, but a good amount. The warriors take on the kings at home tonight, then they'll have a few days off before facing the Cavaliers on Friday.

"The athletic today on the show. It's the second part of our NBA playoff deep dive into the early games of the playoffs here. We didn't really focus much on Boston in Brooklyn outside of the first couple of minutes of this episode. From then on, we talk mostly about the other games that we got to see. We spend it least a minute or two talking about each series, but a big portion of this is going to be focused on Anthony Edwards and Minnesota's growth, that fun Memphis series. With the Timberwolves that I think is poised to go for a long time here into the next couple of weeks. We moved forward, we talked a bit about the 76ers and raptors. We talked a bit about the bulls and bucks. We talked some about Chris Paul's incredible game one performance against the New Orleans pelicans. It was a nice little deep dive into all of the rest of the games outside of that incredible Brooklyn Boston series. So keep it locked here and you'll get to hear all sorts of fun stuff, all sorts of breakdowns of all of those series here and where they stand.

"They're legitimately good that funky three big lineup actually works well for them. I love having mobile. He's probably my favorite rookie in the league right now. It has been a really, really solid, so I'm gonna give them another playmaker where they can really get into some stuff, make some things happen. I'm really kidding this team make a little bit of noise in the postseason. I like it. I like it. The New Orleans pelicans, you're getting a new foot for Zion. I think that's what they need more than anything else. So it's going to be a brand new foot. Maybe we'll even go with like kind of a robotic of robotic one like a Luke Skywalker hand, except it'll be Zion's foot. And hopefully that'll get him healthy and back on the floor. Doesn't slow down echo in hawkeye at all to have a side. Sorry, I'm gonna dip into something here really cool. Okay. Yeah, it was hawkeye. No spoilers here, but I did not know that the actress is actually deaf and an amputee. That is really, really cool. And she's going to headline her own series coming. That's not a spoiler. We know that. That's coming at Disney announced that a while back. So yeah, I think that's really awesome that she is talking about not letting anything hold you back and go out there and chase your dreams. It's good, really good character, too. I mean, I had a lot of fun with her in a dock eye series. Yeah, that series was great. And so we watched that the other night as well. And this was, I think one of the better final episodes that we've seen on all these marvel ones, it just tied everything up so well. Again, not to spoil too much, but oh my gosh, that watch reveal at the very end. I just went mind blown. Awesome, awesome stuff. Yeah, pretty cool. All right, we're going to go to Brooklyn. And we're going to give them the big three as they envisioned. Kyrie, Kevin Durant, James Harden. We've rarely seen it together. It hasn't worked in the way they wanted it to work. Some one of the three has always been out for some reason or another. We're creeping towards it. So let's give them the big three as they envisioned and see, can that group come together the way they hoped? The Utah Jazz, the Utah Jazz, you know, always that team that's right there and they're always the bridesmaid never the bride come playoff time, things tend to fall to pieces, teams start to figure out what they're doing during the regular season. They're pretty darn good. I'm going to give them postseason versatility, meaning finally they're going to find a way to throw different wrinkles at teams that they're not going to be able to adapt to on the fly and that's going to make them a real threat come playoff time. That is a good one right there. I like that one. I'm gonna go to Washington and I'm gonna give them that this may be one of those where you get the card that your gift is coming a little bit later. But that Bradley Beal thinks a long-term contract with the wizards stays there, sticks there, and he is their franchise guy for years to come. That's what I'm going to give the wizards. So every once in a while, your gifts just not quite available on Christmas and you've got to wait a little bit for it..

"You're going to have creation out there every single night that he plays. You're going to have great transition driving play every single night that he plays. He is just going to help them win more regular season games. I think they would be my pick and it would be closely followed by Utah just because they're so well oiled in terms of what they do from a schematic perspective. I will say also like, you know, I pick Kevin Durant, when MVP, LeBron is sitting at 14 to one right now to an MVP. If the Lakers win the west, there's going to be a push for LeBron. There's going to be a huge narrative there too, right? And see, that's the thing. And I don't know you say that as a negative, by the way. I think the narrative part of the MVP is actually important because MVP tells the story of the season. Without a stat book. You know? You don't have to, I don't have to watch all of these games. I can just say, oh, jokic was the MVP. Wow. You know what I mean? And then you have the conversation about how that happens. So I don't necessarily think me in the sport in sports media should be pushing narratives necessarily because that's weird. But certainly they're going to play a part and I think I'm right there with you. LeBron is doing what he started the season last year doing? He's going to get votes. Yeah. Yeah, I think LeBron is somehow for the first time in his career might actually be like an underrated look at MVP. Like, look, I think a lot of people have the wrong idea about me. I like crazy fun. So this Lakers team that feels kind of crazy because it's all these old guys are wearing? Man, I hope that they are awesome. I hope it is basketball, Nirvana. Because that would be just fun. It would be fun to talk about for a year. So I think it's gonna be really good. I think you're gonna be really good too. I really do think they're gonna be really good. We're gonna make fun of them. When old stuff happens, you know, when the old guy situations arise, which is going to, you know, one of them has bursitis or something. Here's the thing they have for many of them though. Like they've so many of these older guys that they're just gonna be able to make it work. They have a never ending supply of dudes that at least know how to just go out and be a professional basketball player. And that Orlando with that's like, they don't know. The New Orleans pelicans. Yeah. I mean, look, and we are gonna tease. That's fun. It's fun teasing. But I swear, man, when you look at what they did and you look at what the pelicans did, I think the Lakers did better. They're at least. You know, I don't know, man. I'm pumped about the Lakers. I'm really pumped about the Lakers. And if LeBron is at an MVP level, yeah, that's something else. That's special. That'd be a special citizen. It's gonna be amazing. It's gonna be absolutely amazing. Okay, Titleist, who is going to win the NBA championship in 2022. Dave do four. How about Milwaukee Bucks back to back? Screw it. Love it. That's what I'm picking on your show. I'm gonna pick something else on. Do it.

I'm good i I think i agree with you at all. I don't know. I a lot of people don't know what to expect from this team going into the year and it's gonna be interesting to see exactly how how all this plays out. Yeah i mean definitely especially with You know getting into the bomb dropped us zion that zion had his His great start media they out. Yes yeah it's four minutes in the media day everything goes out the window. Yeah i mean what was your reaction when it happened. Because i mean that's the i'll never forget i was on Sort of similar thing. It's not not quite to the same extent. But i was on so i cover the pacers and i was on the media call when the not the day i think it was like two days after victory depot said. He wasn't going to play in the bible and the first question. That nate mcmillan gets asses outage you find out and he says the exact same way you guys all did and i was like oh shit. This is no but yeah.

Do i take computer for these. I learned so. I can tweet a little bit faster record Had a little bit of road. And i remember just thinking all right. Well i guess. I'm writing a story right now during the of this press conference and trying to think i'll start doing. The mental math in my head of heart will is is this kind of fractured this kind of fracture. How many debts are pre summer league. That's that'll be two and a half months at three months before you start doing all these different things and it kinda throws off the game a little bit. Because they knew gra finishes. And you're supposed to ask you something. Yeah you know. So we're lock our. I mean it was kind of a a bomb being being dropped on you at at the right to start things but you say you start doing the math. And he started on a figure out where he is. Then when you hear okay. He's he's he's ready. He should be ready for opening day. Things you know help you process is a little bit easier than you gotta figure out a little bit of a time on that. Yeah most definitely and it's it's especially to looking at the way. The season starting out for new orleans a new coach which obviously that is very different than another extra really funny story I did a sports media conference and got to talk to alvin gentry. Time ended up being the day before he got fired I have some a question because it was like dealing with a lot of You know bad press just because the team had lost in the first round the plowing album like you know..

"There with ben simmons. He's very much available in trade talks which is a strange thing to do for one of your all star players You know normally you say. Oh we're gonna we're gonna keep the guy we're going to keep the guy we love the guy and you know you sort of be secret about. The sixers are wide open. I mean you know. Obviously ben did not have a good finished last year but the way they've treated then they haven't treated them like they care about him. No i just. I struggle to think of another number one overall pick who's been all. Nba player all defense player. Who feels routinely more insulted in ways. That are practical and substantive and also like superficial when it comes to fans just turning on him in ways. That are kind of staggering. As i've talked to teams have had discussions about ben simmons. The the thing about is is that the the sixers are making pretty steep trade demands. They want multiple young players two or three first round picks and pick swaps. Basically the james harden deal. That's the kind of package they want for. Ben simmons but is value. Wasn't there right now. And so when. I talked to teams what they say is offers or the counter offers. The for the seventy sixers are making are so aggressive and heavy. you know it's like I come up and knock on your door and pablo and say hey a to buy your house and you say sure. Twenty five million dollars. I mean you know. Did you make me an offer to buy your house you did. But you're not really interested in selling. This is where. I'm trying to read between all of these lines. Because that suggests to me. That daryl morey may not want to do the thing that everybody else wants him to do seemingly immediately well if this was nba one. Oh one you would say. Even if you're not happy with the guy and you wanna trade him you would not do things to reduce his value. You like make them available all over the week. You would say we love. Ben simmons. we think he's making strides. We had a great season last season. And we get another year under doc rivers and he's going to be better and you know by the way forget about he's not available but they're maury is a guy who operates three or four steps ahead and he doing this for a reason. I haven't quite figured it out yet. But he's got some game plan is trying to accomplish. And the other thing about daryl. That he proves in houston is that he doesn't care if he offends players and he also has no problem. Lie the media on the record a. And so like he could come out tomorrow and gil the press conference and say we're not trading ben simmons. I wouldn't blame him for a sec. This is the way darlas operated for a long time. Everybody is available brian. I remember him and again. I really liked darryl love when he comes on the pod. I remember when darryl courted carmella need to houston by putting on their big screen. A photoshop carmelo anthony picture where he was wearing number seven. Which happened to be the number of jeremy lin who was still on the rockets right and like right now. I'm pretty soon here. I expect the joel. Embiid is going to negotiate. He's eligible to get a supermax contract extension and so they have to operate under the circumstances that they've got to get your well locked up and so it's a very strange dance that they're playing it really is and frankly you know. I don't want to tell too many tales but there was very aggressive and active on a lot of other of their players from what i understand is well. His goal is to make his team as good as it could be. And so you have this team. That was number one in the east in the regular season and then collapsed. Infamously for a number of different. The question though is how you get your team to be better than that one. And if you're doing that game it seems to me like you're incentivized to wait and you're incentivized to way because there is one player to me. That is concretely. An upgrade over a ben simmons caliber type player. And that's damian lillard. So what are you hearing as dame is with you in tokyo about what his future with lasers is looking like right now and whether the sixers might be involved in that since i've been covering tina say which is three and a half weeks or so four weeks damon's head to deny rumors of him demanding a trade on three different occasions which is done on the record. Now do i believe the dame is absolutely one hundred percent. Happy is committed to the blazers in the last few years. i know. i don't believe that. I believe he's thirty. One years old questioning where he wants to spend the back of his prime. I think that there are teams out there. That are absolutely they have a break. Glass in need of emergency trade offer for bradley beal. Four damian lillard. Maybe even ben simmons and maybe that is what darryl is doing is having talks but not really having talks as he waits for a player that he really wants to come available instead of negotiating with guys that he doesn't want he understands that this is a very valuable asset regardless with anybody thinks ben simmons is a great player under long term contract with no outs. That's very well could be again. And he's playing right now. Yeah he's a great player who was also driving me fairly insane. Contemplating all of these possibilities and one other thing. We just got word about. Brian is that coli. Leonard is opting out of his contract. He's becoming a free agent of the wo. Zhe is reporting that the expectation will be. They don't negotiate a new deal to stay with the clippers. Which if true and stay with me here. That needs chris. paul. And kyle lowry. Are these two free agent. Domino's that look ready to tip everything else over so what is up with those point. Guards what are we hearing about. Kyle lowry and chris paul. I would like to be kyle lowry financial planner because he is about to get an enormous contracts and to this day as good as messiah. Jerry was building that team getting them championship. I do not understand what he was doing. The trade deadline last year. But kyle lowry has now become a very desired commodity. Not just because teams want point guards. But because chris paul teams out there saw paul could do for a young team. There was sort of in the middle and he completely elevated the sons. And so if. You can't get chris paul which i believe. He's going stand. Phoenix kyle. lowry is the next best thing. And there's a number of teams that are sort of in the middle that are looking to be elevated upwards especially with young players kyle will probably be the biggest free agent domino not because he's the best player available but because there's teams are so aggressive with him that he makes a choice for the money to start flowing so the three teams that we believe are the most serious contenders of the dallas mavericks. The new orleans. Pelicans and the miami heat And so what has become a key point in the negotiations. What i understand is that kyle would like three years. Guaranteed which is an ask for a guy who's had some injury problems in his the that age but he's so in demand he may be able to get it teams who might make an offer to him that in lieu of giving him that third year give him really big salaries in the first two years like like. I think he's probably looking for something in the neighborhood of thirty million a year so a three year ninety million s contract if maybe even towards one hundred so instead of doing that maybe you give him thirty seven or forty million the first two years and say how about we forget about that third year. So that is where the negotiations going to be but i definitely think new orleans i definitely think dallas. I definitely think miami are in it. There's probably some others you know that. He the knicks bounce around. Of course he could stay with the raptors raptors could resign of were sign and trade him somewhere else. So lowry is a big domino. And he should the next time he sees chris. Paul give him adapt and maybe even a giant hug. Because you know deal with a copy cat league and they're trying to copycat a commodity that is rare and it fits with kyle. Lowry is and as a thirty five year. Old myself the idea that in the nba at age thirty five former twenty fourth overall pick you can go and get a three year deal for nine figures. Wow that is the chris. Paul more than a hugging edge man and i think chris paul is going to be in the same. I don't know what will get worked out in phoenix or elsewhere. But if chris paul sits there and watch kyle lowry get thirty plus million. He's gonna want it to and that's what the market's going to bare and there are teams out there that really want that type of player and phoenix wants to keep that player so grind before i let you go here like how do you stay up to be on top of all of this because right now as we talk your. You should be asleep in tokyo right out but clearly like nba news. It's about to get pretty intense as allegedly free agency begins for the first time in earnest. Here today well. When i wake up which means i've slept through the mill is day Us i take a deep breath. Before i pick up my phone. I have no idea what it is gonna. I wake up pretty early. I've noticed thing on the social media. The guys who are active love the players are tweeting and liking and instagram at like five forty five. Am i mean like the players. Who are here. Like kevin durant damian lillard. But you know it's a it's a league that doesn't ever sleep. I've been on at a incredibly bizarre hours with nba personnel. And i am following it and jump. Has this fantasy special. It's like four or five hours. I need to be ready to be on it and it starts at four. Am local on tuesday. So i guess. I'll be on american hours and by the way later that day team. No safe in this in the quarter-finals. Please don't hold me to anything. I might say or do that day. Right went as always.

It's just now going to be the third head coach that Zion Williamson is going to have his third year in the league. Now, when you look at Willie Green Clearly has an extensive basketball background was in Philly, the Hornets in New Orleans. Atlanta. Play with the Clippers was with Orlando as a player the last few years, though, because just because you're a former player doesn't mean that you're going to be a great coach.

"But i think if the pacers were trading savona sir asking for lot back the should i it for me. It would depend on. What's lined up for for stephen adams. I'm i'm not making any type of big commitment to start addressing hundred. I'm not trying to make any type of commitment into another big frankly like i'm tired of giving up acids for first centers In i would like investors in perimeter players are in wings. But i like the bonus a lot. And i think he'd be really good. Fit with zion but it really would depend on what they have lined up for atoms and but if if they had a legitimate trade leonard for adams where they're not attaching a pick for then sure i think lonzo signing trade lonzo kill a pick would be worth entertaining after all right well. This was awesome man. I really appreciate you taking the time Do you have anything you want to plug before you got here now. You guys can follow me at fear.

"They weren't players that could utilize him minutes lettuce system as a as a roll man Or in any kind of those screening actions where he can dive and uses vertical right and so ever since they put zaylon as more of a ball handler. the units with him in jackson. I've really taken off from a net rating perspective and a car has been a part of that. It's well cairo's emergence in him. Being able to get jackson shots. But yes so. Like the the level of attention zion draws he recognizes that and jackson's usually open in the dunker spot in zion's the only person on the team has reliably figured out that jackson can go get the ball Over anybody so just put it up there. He's gonna go get it and then they'll be like frequent plays. Were bringing the ball to floor. Four guys are kind of keyed in on him jackson's chillan in the dunker spot and zainal just put. They're not even so like jackson code. Dunk jackson catching eleven. Easy layup right there at the rim. Come down with enough heavily up so And you're right. Nike has has figured that out as well. And you know and so. That's that's been a lot of fun to watch. Yeah definitely man and you mentioned too. I mean with kyra talked about kyrie yet. His developments been awesome as well. I mean like he's a small guard but he's pro. You might be the best point of attack defender on the roster other than najji like he's bringing a lot defensively that i've liked the shot. It's not like the percentages aren't great. But he's taking pretty difficult ones. What have you seen from cairo. That you've life. Because i really enjoying him. I actually would like to see more minutes from a moving forward for sure. But it's going to be tough of course with blood sweat on the roster still but what have you thought of him so far yes so he. His speed has translated immediately and it pops when it comes to him beating guys off the dribble. He's probably the most dynamic passer on the team is able to create passes and passing lanes that no other guard can't simply because he's so good at blowing by people on getting to different areas on the court He's really good at connecting to players together. Both with the ball in with himself like he'll dribble the ball or lane and get to a place where the defensively becomes leverage He's was what's really bad about him as his decision making he's a really low turnover guises like assist to turnover ratio. Like close to five to one right now Which is really impressive for a nineteen year old card In so that's really impressive. The the downsides with him have been he's really slide or frame. Oh yeah though so that that hurts him when it comes to finishing at the rim When it when it comes to get into the paint You know even even drawing fouls. He's his shootings. Been in been fine. Know he's shooting thirty five percent from three which is accessible. i think he can shoot better As as his legs as he gets stronger..

"But i think we're talking about the the ewing theory bullshit which i also don't don't really like but it just shows you new levels of operating late when when nikiel plays was seven games it's not just against crappy teams. I mean they go for three playing. I think denver twice the lakers I want say pre lebron injury Like it's it's not just fake wins like they're doing things in you're seeing okay. Well this is what happens when you surround zion with with players who can do the they beat. Denver dallas those the game when they came from behind you in boston to like boston yup yet. So there's there's a lot of there's a good wind profiler yeah but Yeah so art. Next thing to a guy who i last year i wasn't i wasn't in pressuring thing. I just was super raw is still kind raw this year. But jackson hayes is really started to figure some things out and i really. I like where you out with jackson because now he's starting to take some corner threes less recently but he had a. He had a stretch where he took Took a three every game for almost a week. And you hit your couple. He's got like decent form. Is solid free throw shooter. It's not like end all be all or anything but he's just you can show. I mean you can see us adding things to his game. He looks a little bit. More comfortable defensively And his his abilities has allowed threat and into just collapse from the dunker spots. Who has been huge yes. Oh he's shooting. Forty two percent forty two point nine percent from three this year. So it's safe to say he's the next dirk and i'm not gonna hear anything otherwise y'all rookie should have made the yeah. The rising stars challenge them. That way you wouldn't have had to yell at himself but he of i. I'm a big jackson. And so i've been on his island for a very long time. And he's he's super robert wright He hasn't filled out his body completely. Yet there's long way for him to go in the body development perspective which i think will also intern go along way for him defensively because of his big issues right now. Defensively is foul trouble. And so i thirty six minutes. He's he's down from last year's last year he was five point four fouls per thirty six minutes. Which is absurd But now he's down to four point three. Which is you. you can play a whole game if you play at that rate but it's still not good right you don't wanna be sending opponents of the line all that frequently and that's directly related to him just not being filled out his his core strength is is like strength all of that so like bigger guys can push him around a little bit in a stronger guards can drive right into his body and Make him be not vertical and draw the foul. So that's where he is. I think from an awareness standpoint. He is taking a leap this season. he started off the season just generally clueless. And you're like man this. This looks rough lake. Not sure there's a future for him in the league you know It was it was at that point. Like okay maybe. He needs to go to the g. league you'll be. We'll talk about him going back to college Jokingly of course and in there was a period where they benched him for like a week two weeks something like that. They played billy..

"Is rearranging chairs on the titanic. But like he will rather play. Lineups that feature jackson hayes and stephen adams together than he will play a lineup. That is small. You know that without a center on on the on the court which is a little bit crazy to me he because there's oftentimes Especially in these late game situations where the pelicans need points and their defenses hasn't been able to stop anyone anyway. So i i just don't understand the logic where you know. Your your defense has been terrible. All season long In sometimes you know at the end of the game situations teams are just completely leaving a guy like atoms and zone. Whatever so why. Don't you go smaller and gives eye on a little bit more room to operate and put up some points. Because this team doesn't take a lot of threes Again as a personnel issue. They don't take a lot of threes and it's difficult to really come back If you're down if you don't take a lot of threes and so just find ways juice up the offense. And i think stand has been so neurotic about the defense and the defense being bad that he hasn't given care attention to the offense in you know i think maybe that's part of their internal plan because stand is a is a four year project where he's meant to be a teacher and teach them things the right way to teach him to Teach them to build the correct habits. That's what he was brought in to do in that starts on defensive end because that is where your franchise players struggle the most and so maybe from their perspective like okay. Fine they'll put up points. They'll find a way to score right now. We wanna focus on them being good defensively period So they built good defensive habits. And then we'll you'll will will install the offense maybe next year whatever Again like the offense has been bat right. Who's as you mentioned. They had a two month stretch with the best offense in the league. There's still a top ten offense. They're good offensive team. It's just that there are moments where they desperately need points quarter. Yeah right you know when when teams lock in and in its. He's just like nope. I don't wanna go small and like i'm like okay. I i don. I don't understand what the but outside of that you know. I think he's been largely fine..

"Always raises the stakes in of course given some craziness the way that i don't wanna just like blankets even say media but like talking head media will will bring up stuff and say all was i on to new york to four years. When that's even a possible thing like you know that it kinda expedites things in general. Yes so. you're right that the pelicans now have a clear idea that this guy is already a top. What fifteen twenty player. I mean at least top twenty player in the league. You know he's he's he's approaching those upper echelon of players very rapidly and they don't have this sort of time which is a good thing you don't want to wait for five years to figure out if you have a star on your hands you figured out your to your in the driver's seat to go ahead and go put a good roster around me know the path forward is very clear. You have this future. Mvp level caliber player in. You have all of these draft assets and he's still on his rookie deal so his far out producing what he costs And so you have all this freedom in assets to go be aggressive and in put a good team around him and be as good as you can with him for as long as you have. You're not going to be able to predict the future. I think it's impossible like you can do everything right and have a winning record and make the finals and stars still want to leave. You know we've seen it for whatever reason they'll still want to leave. Your your goal should be to put the best product out there as possible in kind of enjoy the greatness while you can cause i. I just don't think you're you're going to be able to change the mind of someone who who wants to be somewhere else and we don't know that person are not yet it's impossible to twelve twenty years old and i'm not sure how old you are but like i was a complete different person when i was twenty than than i am now. In people grow people change in either. They are allowed to do that. They're allowed to want things that are best for themselves so the pelicans really can't wait with from a from a position of fear or no position of gosh..

"Justice do his level of play justice especially at twenty years old him being able to generate as many rim attempts as he does per game which i think is the most sense shack and be as efficient as he is despite a an ill suited roster for him. Being honest i mean. Look like stephen adams and eric bledsoe are not creating spacing for him. there there. Aren't that many shooters on the team. And there aren't that many high level offensive creators on the team either so despite all of those despite playing a slow paced half court oriented system. He's getting whatever he wants like. No one is stopping him. And it's it's a layup with his dominant hand almost every single time and that that selling short because he's he's really really good at going right when he needs to and he's really really good at grabbing offensive rebounds and and Putting back as you mentioned he can push in transition. He can do a lot of offensive things as passing has taken quite jump ever since they've put the ball in his hands a little more so yeah he's been absolutely phenomenal in on the defensive side. He was awful to start the season. Like just what it move. He would swipe at the ball Just be completely asleep on cuts. In some of those easy things have really disappeared. So he's trying. He's putting in effort. He hit his motors a lot. Better than what it was. And i think it's directly related to conditioning and as the season's gone on is conditionings gotten higher. And i think he's quietly worked himself up to a level where he's not a liability on that end night in night out even though the pelicans defenses disastrous as a whole and he'd certainly contributes to that. I think you know if you were plotting him on a better defensive team he would hold his own. Any wouldn't be killing you. Yeah no i totally agree with that. And i think i've gotten I don't. I always saying frustrated. But i have gotten frustrated because when people you know i'm like okay well you. Maybe you're not watching. What's going on because i've had people bring to me. Well you know. I just don't understand how you can build around on her. Have zion out there. With how bad of a defender is like well. Okay what we got to look at context. You're like stephen adams is not stephen. A five years ago eric. Bledsoe is not eric bledsoe. One year ago Lonzo has not been as good defensively as it was last year Even like i i do think. His defense got over hyped overall just the whole roster has been kind of rough but before we even talked about the defense like you mentioned the passing with with zion. I think what was most exciting to watch and also unfortunate just the way that it work. That was weird. Everything with jj redick. But i mean thousand one of my favorite developments. That was starting to happen. They were starting to run some really good two man game between him and and zion. And of course you know..

Would you say it's been a disappointment. So far twenty seven thirty four Given where or how do you view the season. So far yeah. It's a very complex question right because it for it to be a disappointment or a success or anything in between it kind of has to go back to what the expectations were prior to the season. Starting and i think a lot of a lot of people around the league on think a lot of pelicans writers and fans kind of had the pelicans outside of the playoffs. Too big and so the expectation wasn't that they would be good however in the fashion that they have reached that outcome of being just outside. The playoffs has been disappointing because along the way they've discovered. Just how good. Zion williamson is Brandon ingram is also an all star caliber player. And so when you look at some of the pieces around this team especially the top. Two players in bringing in the vets like stephen adams an eric bledsoe we talk about. I'm sure later In hiring a veteran coach in st as damning gundy they should have been better than they are and they shouldn't have blown as many leads as they did which has been. I think emblematic of the season. Where the. Pelicans are phenomenal team. In the first forty five minutes of the game and in the last three minutes they turned into a bunch of preschoolers.

"Jj redick longtime veteran fifteen years in the leak. Good player not great good. Though he requested a trade from new orleans pelicans in november and asked them to send them somewhere one he was up. You know not upset but hey drew's gone through holiday. That was a big part of why i came here. And you know. I would like to be close to my family in brooklyn close enough where i can go see him on off days things like that. They told him. Bet you got it. And of course they trade him to dallas so he's upset because he says they didn't keep their word. Here's jj reading on his own podcast. My understanding all along was that. I was going to get a buy out. And if i was going to be traded it was going to be to a team in the northeast where i was closer to home and i'd be able to see my family for the last two or three months of the season obvious that didn't happen. I don't think you're gonna get honesty from that front office. Just objectively speaking. I don't that's not an opinion. i just don't think you're going to get that. But i think i was a little naive in thinking that because i was in year fifteen and you know i had at least attempt to do things right throughout my career and i honored my end of the bargain but in terms of this front office. Yeah i mean. It's it's not something where i would expect. Certainly the agents that that worked on this with me to ever to ever trust that front office again.

What's going on with the New Orleans Pelicans?

"This year's deputy f team the new orleans pelicans. I don't know what baker this team you can catch them on any given night and it's a completely different experience than the last night. I don't know if the players make sense together. Actually i'm pretty sure they don't. I don't really know what the overall philosophy is. I don't know if they're trying to be a playoff team if they're trying to be rebuilding. I'm just constantly confused and there are some optimism because they want a couple of games around people here they go here. Zion and then they get killed last night by the bulls and have one hundred thousand breakdowns. And i guess my first question to you is the pelicans what the fuck you. How many exclamation points can we tack onto that. Wt fd think. But i was hoping you could answer this question. Because i think you're spot on in that it's so much depends your view of this team on when you catch them even just like what stage in the season. You caught them because for a minute. It looked like they were going to live up to their personnel and be a tough minded offensive team. Scrounging out offensive rebounds to get points and just kinda struggling on that in because they're spacing issues the script has completely flipped. And now this is all of a sudden very competent offense. I think park has really driven by brandon. Ingram is i ion williamson. They're making that part of it work but the defense. Jesus christ i mean it is. There is inconsistent defensively as really any team out there. Yeah i would say other than brooklyn. It's the team that's most likely to give up one hundred forty on any given night to any team. That knows what they're doing. I so if you actually look at their stats and you haven't been watching that much and you look at the stats and you look at williamson in ingram and all right. Those guys are having good years pretty efficient. And then you look at lonzo and you look at bledsoe. Lonzo shoot thirty seven percent from three so she and forty percent so going into the season like well. Their guards can't shoot. They're not going to be able to have enough space. Well their guards are actually shooting. Okay but then. When i watch everybody together. I don't have a five-man line-up that i liked like yesterday. They're playing Kyra lewis with He he got a little more run and he's really interesting. Rookies really fast. He's little darren foxy and gave them an energy that i was like. Well maybe this. Maybe i would like this version of the pelicans more. If fast you know now unleash sign a little bed. Go up and down a little bit more. But i still don't know who the other two teammates would be with cairo. Lewis design and branding. And i guess the fundamental question for me is do zion and brandon. Ingram makes sense together on a team. That's actually trying to win the title. I think they make sense on offense but the question was i on really broadly. As who are you going to put the five that's gonna make up for all. He doesn't do defensively right now. That's always been my issue with the idea of playing small and we are putting him at the five his rotations is. Aren't there really the pelicans as a team. If i were an opposing coach. I would say this is a team. We can beat him rotation every they are. Pass away from defensive breakdown every time out on the floor and keep moving the ball. You keep doing what you're supposed to do they will they will mess up in a whether it's undersized guy in the corner doesn't quite rotate over all the way. Jj radic or josh. Hart they try hard. They do what they can. But they're not equipped to be helped rotation defenders. If a guy like zion isn't going to be one so i mean i'm i'm kinda bullish on the anger rooms ion depot in general but i am really struggling to see how you put together those lineups. I can see how they kind of got into this conundrum where they clearly wanted to have some veterans early. Some veterans fell into their lap in terms of what was available and trying to get some pics and make their other moves but long term. It's a weird team to build with.

We ended up working with other guys and put on the first ever all. Nba forty nine stream was called ballers only and I think it was actually one of the highest ever debut twitch streams of course has since been beaten but just little things like that we started to get our footing in the space and existing clients who were not in gaming started to come rest and say hey how can we enter the space. We see you guys doing a lot of work gaming. How can we do this. And so we realize like. Hey there's a really cool white space here for for an agency that can can walk these worlds. You know play between these worlds really really well And so we quietly for the last. I guess three years or so have been doing gaming work under the cut and sew name and it wasn't until recently that we spurred us ourselves ourselves down and we're like we can't be an industry agnostic agency and reach our full potential in the space because the gaming industry is too protective. It's too wary. It's to sort of aware of others that are looking to come in and exploit it which you know we'd like to think we're not doing And so we built zone gaming which sits undercutting so and it's It's exclusively dedicated into the gaming space. So it's you know working with brands. Both endemic and non endemic Doing everything from social and digital influencers to content to live event production to brand strategy brand identity Really anything on the marketing side. We feel really really confident in doing And then i'd say an interesting part about our mindset is we're not just using. We're not just a service business. So we're we're actually People are coming to us for building businesses with them. We're taking this. Mark needs the infrastructure. And we're applying to ip that we have ownership in. We're investing off the balance sheet where it makes sense where we can add value Were working with individual talent on helping them build their brand on twitch So we're doing a little bit of everything and that sort of the genesis of how we got to where we are. I have so many questions met many questions Can i start with one. Because you you mentioned all the can do with endemic and non endemic brands. Okay wonder my rallying cries like a a the something that i hit on tires that get ready. Get ready like here's paul shouting at the cloud. So get ready. I teach east sports marketing classes. Saint peter's okay and so by default. I have to teach them about endemic and non endemic brands. Okay let's just part of the curriculum because that is what the industry talks about right. I personally hate this sort of differentiation. Between the two. And i'll tell you why i hate it because it makes it seem like non endemic brands. Don't really belong right. Like like like endemic brands are special and and are part of the the group and on drawn in the sand right. I kinda hate that. Because and i've spent quite a bit of time in the last two years educating brands so sort of the peace before where you come in which is like what do we. Why do we need to know about east sports at all. And why is it interesting for us at all. And then they sort of decide what they wanna do in the but but even like as part of that education process. What i've realized is some of them do feel excluded in this. Non endemic brand. Sort of category. My question to you. Is you really treat those two categories differently when a brand walks in the door. And do you agree that maybe this differentiation is something that should go away. I think we treat them differently. And the reason we treat them differently because in my opinion you know the gaming consumer is a ruthless one right and if you if you come at them in an authentic way in a way that doesn't understand how they speak their language the emotes they use and you don't speak to them in a way that likes to be spoken they'll write you off forever. And so i think that if you're a brand know not to use this word again if you're if you've been traditionally not a democr- you haven't entered the space before. I think it's really important to take a slightly different approach in. Make sure that you almost Pay your respect and and earn your stripes and pay homage to the culture In a way that maybe a brand who's been activating endemically for a really long time like could skip over. And so. That's that's the only reason i think i'd like to differentiate is because there is a bit of just like a laying the groundwork that that you have to do your first time in the space but generally i agree with you.

"Matt for our for our listeners and our viewers. Could you tell our audience who hasn't heard of you. That'd be surprised but who maybe doesn't know your background how you got into sports. What you're working on today. Some of the things. I talked about maybe Would love to get sort of the man. Hillman story yeah absolutely. I'll spare you too much. But i I launched a full service marketing agency. That was completely outside of these sports. Space called cut and so Coming up on three years ago now so is in january. Two thousand eighteen with two partners. The three of us sort of just felt like we really unique But also diverse skill sets between Done a ton of work in sports and entertainment space. My two partners were rebound florida at a tech startup that became sort of a case. Study for consumer marketing. It was called jack. Blew up on college campuses. They were the minds behind a lot of that. And so the three of us just kind of linked up and realized that we wanted to to build something together and we had all been doing some consulting on the side and realized that an agency model was really really. Good way for us to be able to you. Know it's not like one. Plus one plus one equals. You know nine right. It's not three so We put our heads together and started to build this business. You know it's a service based business Work with companies big and small and help them help them reach a younger More culturally aware demographic that businesses called cut and so again started it almost three years ago and you know where gaming sort of came into the picture is through our work cut and so will one gaming as as ubiquitous at this point right at it is. It is so far transcended. It's it's it's individual industry in seeping into everything that we know and so If you do anything in the world of sports entertainment or music or it's really hard to gaming wasn't always like that but We were doing a lot of work with with athletes Who were really really passionate. Gamers and this was late. The early two thousand eighteen. When you did it wasn't commonplace to see athletes in celebrities streaming on twitch this was pre ninja drake. This was It was it.

NBA Mock Draft 3.0

"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road

How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?

"Was a few weeks ago in the ringer NBA show that at the very tail end of the show I recall you saying. Keep an eye out for Stan van Gundy and New Orleans and since we last spoke That came to fruition Stan Van Gundy was hired by David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans I think when this all started with the pelicans ouster of Alvin gentry. Through the. Face Tyler had a former relationship with David. Griffin, we talk about my Tony possibly because he had a former relationship via the Phoenix Suns with David Griffin but they do land on Stan van, Gundy as their next head coach when you saw that news come across the wire, would you think great I'm happy I think he could bring some accountability to the team in terms of how much they need it on the defensive end of the floor they were horrific. On defense this season in San Andy. Of course, infamously famously I'm not sure once said build an effing wall and that the Pelicans need to do and I look forward to see what he can do now that he's back in the NBA but by the way like he failed in Detroit because he was coach. Angie 'em now he's just a coach right and he was always a good coach. He was good basketball coach and it was one of those cautionary tales of. It is two different skill sets number one it also in many cases can be two different motivations right if I am if I am the general manager and the coach now let's say I make a poor signing or a poor usage of money will sometimes I may want to use that guy to prove that I was right about this guy right and I know that you Still get into that with with a front offices and coaches anyway, right in in everybody wants to be responsible everybody wants to be right about the move they made. But when you then you're not doing the scouting of every other team on a regular basis, I know you have scouts you're certainly not doing that with college, but it's just a very hard job to do twofold and. Another cautionary tale of taking that over I mean everybody wants that power but I think we've seen two of these guys. Now fact three of these guys. Now, all of which I think you would say were subpar to very below average in that role but. We respect them as guys that are on the sidelines as basketball coaches. That is their expertise in that is doc rivers who took on that role Tom Thibodeau who took on that role and Stan Van Gundy who took on that role and yet got hired as coaches though it didn't go well at their last stops. I mean doc better than the other two but we thought. Hires because these guys are good basketball coaches who were miscast trying to run everything for sure absolutely and ultimately it's another good opportunity for him when New Orleans area there even though they have Zion, they have ingram granted these a restricted free agent. He'll likely back matched any offer sheet or whatever This is still sort of A. Team right now that can go in many different directions depending on how David Griffin wants to build it out and I look forward to seeing the ways in which Van Gundy, Utilize Zion and the ways in which he tries to get him going off because remember you know before all the three point shooting, we've seen the last ten years or so that has. Exploded with the warriors and the rockets and all these teams shooting lot of threes, the magic, Dwight Howard at center and four shooters around him in the late two thousands with anti head coach and they went to a finals. We're going to be lost to Kobe and the Lakers The had some good run they some really strong teams and in with Williamson. With the New Orleans Pelicans, I know they want to add another they don't want to go like all small Wall. With Zion at the five all the time it's it's just went to work but I, think van Gundy's pasts and what he could do now with this roster, it's kind of exciting to think about the possibilities with the different ways in which they can use ion but most importantly though and again, this is like with all the coaching hires we talk about I am more interested in the personnel changes who they draft, who do they try to trade for? Who Do they try to sign I am WHO's coaching the team, but you know I'm excited to see if they're able to get. Zion, going and creative ways that they weren't able to do as much during the season despite his success he posted up a lot man I. WanNa see some more pick and roll with Zion I wanNA see some more creativity with him, handling the ball and running pick and roll, and that will largely come from other personnel changes that come to the roster that allow that to happen. But Hey, man SVG had success with some different types of teams in the past and I look forward to seeing what he can do here with him, and that team has a good roster they under performed badly. Made sometimes teams underperformed because you look at their roster and you go man aol have the goods like that team underperformed I. Think so too. I think of course it I mean look I mean Lonzo I think Lonzo hit one shot in the bubble well, even though they're young that defense was bad even though they had good individual defenders, they've jrue holiday one of the best perimeter guard defenders, Ingraham and Lonzo. They were good defenders of the Lakers. They were the last two years. They were good. They were not good defenders last season with New Orleans. And Zion I, mean he was horrific. He was so bad on defense. It was it was really sad to watch. This is the guy who is blocking three point shots closing out from the opposite side of the paint at Duke just a year prior, which is why people wonder how much of it was fatigue coming back but season how much of it was the injury limiting him how much of it was effort I? Don't know I don't know what it was but regardless. He stunk on defense, and all of this needs to change next season for this team to be anything that have any chance of actually getting into the playoffs it can't be all

Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday

"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.
