"Hey It's Robert here with with Wednesday's Alon Daily it's January twenty ninth twenty twenty such a big day. Let's get started starling. Wants delayed. Launch delayed launched a leads lots of high level winds rough seas but today is the day I feel it in my bones. Ten nine eight seven five four three two one ignition. That's the glorious. Sound of SPACEX launching a Falcon nine rocket. But that wasn't the one that's supposed to happen in a few hours with this launch Starlink will reach one hundred and seventy-five operational satellites in orbit five happened de orbited in this launch. I'm expecting the booster debris recovered on one of the drone chips. There is to ferrings to be caught. My fingers are crossed. That they're gonNA grab all the stuff. Save all this money. Make space space x able to reuse and make launches cheaper. This is on the heels of two successful launches recently and there. There's quite a manifest going forward. We've got to launches of sixty satellites each in February two more planned in March so by at the end of the first quarter SPACEX have as many as four hundred and fifteen operational satellites in space. This means that had they had planned to start service in North America when they reach four hundred eighty satellites. So then we'll be one launch oncho away from starting Internet service through SPACEX. Excellent progress go team. Let's move onto more space news. In a series of tweets Yvonne further outlined his plans to get a million people on Mars by twenty fifty twenty-fifty. That's like twenty nine years from now. That's it's not very long. This depends on the three hundred eighty seven foot or thirty eight story tall starship rocket which is going to be reusable one hundred percent so you know right. Now when space launches of Falcon Nine. They retrieved the booster. The most expensive part are those nine Merlin engines but they jettisoned send a lose the second stage which has a single Merlin engine the vacuum version. And then they recover the faring halves. Well I'm saying they're going to recover the fairing halves at and when it's the dragon capsule that they launch they're going to retrieve that is well just about all the time but with the starship and the super heavy which the booster that takes the starship up both pieces will be recovered therefore one hundred percent reusability and by doing that. It will drop the cost cost of launching equipment people into space Yulon outline that he would need one thousand star ships carrying a hundred million tons of gear or people a year to Mars. That could be as many as a hundred thousand people a year but more it will be cargo goods foods things that need to be consumed and used to build a Mars station or a Mars colony or a Mars city. Alon outlines putting a thousand star ships up at three day quite an amazing launch cadence. He talks about people being able to finance their trip to Mars which might cost around one hundred thousand dollars so people asked on this twitter exchange. Will you be able to find work on on Mars. And he's like yeah. There's a lot of work on Mars and you can use that work to pay off your debts so I just WanNa put this into perspective. A hundred million tons. This is a year of gear. The largest payload we've ever put on. Mars is the Mars Curiosity Rover which was twenty. Two hundred pounds. Sounds like one tonne. So he's looking at really really really ramping. Up the amount of gear and stuff we're going to get to Mars very exciting citing. There's been a lot of progress at Boca Chica. That's the SPACEX launch site in South Texas near Brownsville Texas. They've been building these propellant domes. uh-huh they've been testing these tanks that they construct with the domes and I pumped it full of room temperature nitrogen and then they pumped it full of cryogenic nitrogen both times. They were discovering how welds needed to be fixed. They're finding the leaks that working on redefining the process of building these components the wells and the body of the star ship looks so so different. It's so much more refined it doesn't look like it was banged out of metal. There's a really Nice Article Tesla Ronnie by Eric Ralph about this now. Let's talk about the elephant in the room. The earnings call so today at three thirty PM. Pacific Time Tesla is going to hold its earnings call. We'll covering all of two thousand nineteen and Twenty Nineteen Q.. Four you can go to. I R DOT TESLA DOT COM or. I'll put it in the show links Aw just tune into Ilan daily tomorrow. If you don't have the time to commit and you don't want to listen to the whole thing or maybe you didn't catch all the details. I will cover it tomorrow on the Eland Don Dailey show. Which of course is part of the talking Tesla Network of shows? How can I do without saying that? We're looking forward to all kinds of details coming out of this call Tesla's guidance in other words the the word to Wall Street as to what we're going to expect in twenty twenty which gives a lot of people who are advising on investments. What should they do? Should they sell Tesla should they. By Tesla what should they expect tesla price to be over the next year. These are going to depend on things. It was like what's going to be the production of vehicles in twenty twenty. What's GONNA be the growth of profits and sales how or we can see the gigafactory Shanghai improve and what kind of numbers are we going to see coming out of their gigafactory updates for Germany? And you know what it's funny. I guess. Ilan does listen to the show because on the twenty fourth inland daily. That's January twenty fourth daily. I was recapping all of the different GIGA factories that are coming down the pipeline. I wanted him to clarify this gigafactory five. That was mentioned by the commander in chief but what he did instead. Head was helped to clarify the numbers. In fact he did away with the numbers said in his tweet. Giga factories are now going to be termed based on their location. So this is a change in the official nomenclature. There's now going to be gigafactory. Nevada gigafactory Buffalo Kika factory Shanghai. Hi gigafactory Berlin and I'm still holding my breath to hear where the next one is. HOW ABOUT UPDATES on model why we should get that? They're being spotted in all kinds of cold. Weather climates most recently in boulder in Minnesota up in the mountains of California. It's they've been seen all over California and as far away as Florida Ridha. Deliveries must be imminent that. I'm hoping to find out in just maybe a few hours depending on when you listen to the show. How about energy energy production another big issue for Tesla guidance to see what's going to happen with the Energy Division and the sales in the energy vision it's impressive because that could be bigger than all the cars combined? You remember that Tesla this summer. They announced the mega pack. This is the utility Ludi scale sized pack that has three megawatt hours of capacity in battery. Storage The big thing about this is that it was a big breakthrough. It took up forty percent less space than a comparable pack that was being sold commercially. It took one tenth the number of parts. What's it had a ten x faster? Install rate making the whole thing so much less expensive and it looks like it's heading to a number of places uses like the Moss landing project which they haven't really talked about lately but that's going to involve four hundred mega packs. That's right right. Four hundred packs that hold three megawatt hours each. This is something like one hundred twenty million dollar project. There's another project in my a good town of Oxnard. They were supposed to replace this gas. Peaker plant that sits on this beautiful beach and is really quite an eyesore The company company energy and our jeep was going to replace it. Replace it with a new gas peaker plant which they pulled the permit on and evidently Tesla the power packs are probably heading that way so much about the cyber truck cyber truck we might get some updates like win. Are they going to actually start producing it. It's been tooling all around around. La The last couple of days it's been shown in fact there was a person who founded on the Crenshaw Boulevard which is right near space x driving living with Ilan riding shotgun and dimly. Jay Leno was in the driver seat. So I'm expecting that Jalen show that's also going to feature the model y that'll probably be. He's coming in the near future. And what's so special about this day in history. Have you ever been poughkeepsie. You better poughkeepsie. I WANNA I god. Is that on the back end. You can talk your shoes. Put Your Finger between tells the picture I don't you know I'm GonNa Bust your ass from those three bags. I'm GonNa nail you for that's right it's gene Hackman's ninetieth birthday today. He's an amazing actor. Mine Media Pick the Nineteen Nineteen seventy-one film the French connection. Anybody really care if this guy picks his feet in Poughkeepsie. Well if he does and he says he does then that pleases him outside of his parole jurisdiction and even though he's only getting busted for a couple of bags of heroin which I guess wouldn't get him much of a of a prison sentence if he's out of his parole territory territory that would land him in jail for longer. This police abuse. It's a bad thing but it was a fun movie to watch. I'm Robert. This is Alon Don Dailey. Almost said talking Tesla but it is part of the talking Tesla Network. I am out.

74. Solomavino, Pt. 3

"Nina Talk. Welcome to send. Vino this is going to be the third solo podcast and hopefully the last that I'm going to do for a while Basically the object of this podcast is going to be tied together all the recent releases that are villain streaming What's good what's not kind of bring it all together of what you? WanNa Watch if you're looking for something to kill the boredom We've kind of gotten the fuzzy lollipop when it comes to movies right now Seems like a lot of them and drive washed just about all of them. Lot of them are pretty rough A lot of them. We seem to be getting the the leftovers the crumbs of movies right now lava stuff that we you know. I was looking forward to like. Black Widow Jane the New James Mom Movie. No time to die got moved to later which is too bad but instead we get stuff bloodshot big vin diesel. Which was horrible and do little Robert Downey fantasy island which was awful Lack of boss. I don't know which one of those is. The worst do little might be fancy island. I duNNO I. It's tough though. They're all atrocious. And it's actually more challenging to find decent movies in the pack but there are few and even some of these that are decent going to be not great but not bad. That's kind of what we're dealing with. Emma throw the kids movies out there. I I know a lot of kids are home right now. You know stuck with not a lot to do And there's quite a few kids movies out right now and most of these kind of fallen. The category of of what most kids movies in the modern age do. It's like they`re. They're there to to provide distraction. They're not there to be great. They're not there to even be really above average there to kill ninety minutes of time. They're basically there to give parents break. Give the kids stare at for a while and you kinda great I think against that. Kinda great against that curve of how well a kids movie does that These movies all pretty much fall into that category. With one exception Called wild with Harrison. Ford it's a decent preteen kids moving kinda cash dispirit the book the Special Effects. The CGI is terrible If you can get past that you'll enjoy the movie. Your Kids Prien joined the movie if not you're GONNA hate it the CGI is that bad and it's amazing that something like that attracts one hundred million dollar budget one hundred twenty million dollar budget and it looks that bad But overall a fun movie. It's it's well written Other than the CDI. It's bowl made Harrison. Ford is always great in just about everything. He's in Trolls world tour. It's tough to say Is a decent kids movie again. It's not the best. It's not the worst You know if your kids are tired of watching frozen to over and over and over try that one out it may give you a break Great Voice Talent Saw hedgehog cows. Same thing I was pleasantly surprised by that one. I expected disaster just because most video game movies are terrible. I you know I. It's about a solid six scale of one ten James Marsden's great special effects aren't bad it's nice to see Jim Carey and something he's the villain he's kind of inspector claw you know? Whatever inspector Gadget CLAW RIP OFF The best of the kids movies. Of course Pixar movie is not one of the best pixar movies. It kind of falls in the middle ground. You know you can't compare it to finding Nemo you can't compare it up Toy Story it kind of falls more along the cars level of Pixar movies which is still better than most other animated movies. I really enjoy pixar movies. And you can't tell That's going to be something that parents can really enjoy like most pixar movies. But it's amazing animations phenomenal. It's remarkable how far they've come and you look at something like Toy Story. Bugs life early stuff. You Think. Mayhem as his revolutionary. It's amazing and it's only gotten better and more colorful and more more detailed so beautiful film to look at. It's a shame that people aren't getting to see that in theaters but you know watched on the big TV screen and you can find it. Will you will not be sorry Amongst the other stuff again. A louder stuff is decent. There's a few really good movies out right now. I thought the adaptation of Emma was really good. Jane Austen is notch behind Charles Dickens for authors. Who Don't need to be adapted anymore into movies but you know this worked out pretty well. It's pretty well acted. It's it's enjoyable. It's just kind of fluffy frothy entertainment which is kind of what people need right now. I think that this krona virus kind of alters the way that we we judge movies and offers the way I do anyway. You kind of want more. Disposable entertainment more distraction honestly And Emma is kind of lighter weight entertainment. It's well done intelligent as beautifully photographed. And it's just it's all around movie. Eq- can't compare it to little women which came out last year. It's right below that but it's a good movie invisible man. It's a passable moving again. It's junk food horror movie It's based on the classic Blues Universal Monster Movie But it's a it's a new modern whore update and it works pretty well. It's Kinda Fun. You know deliberately goofy movie that will give you about one hundred hundred ten minutes entertainment Elsewhere the way back with Ben. Affleck pleasantly surprised by this and I think that. That's the story of Ben Affleck where he is an alcoholic. You know disgraced former basketball star gets a chance to go back and coach the high school. It's the typical like sports. Feel good hoosiers you know. On and on the guy who gets to redeem himself It has helped greatly by the fact that Ben Affleck struggle with alcoholism lack the main character in the movie gives it a little bit of an extra kick and so it helps that movie out. His performance is great It's great to see him back in this kind of role and yeah. It's a pretty good movie. I've I've worked in the alcohol industry enough seen alcoholism and they capture that so well about how it just completely destroys. Somebody's life and how difficult it is re people to recognize. They have a problem and then get out of that spiral. So that hit home for me having witnessed that The Gentleman Guy Ritchie's latest movie fun movie to watch break. Cast Matthew mcconaughey Hugh Grant. Everybody has a lot of fun with it. It doesn't take itself seriously. It's just it's after watching Guy Ritchie's very disappointing Disney movie last year Aladdin. It's it's good to see him back into his groove like British Neo war crime comedy type movies you know. It's like one liners. Fast paced action scenes. Just a lot of fun and again. It's exactly what people are looking for right now. I think disposable junk food entertainment so the gentleman is also check now One movie that I was impressed with that hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention. I think it kind of flew under the radar a little bit. Richard the story of the the security guard who was accused of the Olympic Park bombing in Nineteen ninety-six And kind of his ordeal that he suffered good movie. It really impacts you. How quickly and the the media can convict you of a crime How quickly things can get out of control and how somebody in that situation? An innocent man can almost be destroyed by it. So it's kind of a cautionary tale it. It only grows more relevant. The more electronic our lives become And it's it's a fascinating movie as well done. The whole cast is outstanding. So that's one that's kind of slipped under the radar So keep an eye out for Richard Jewel But yeah it's interesting seeing all these movies that are out now. I think I'm more lenient in this time period with how I view and Ray movies just because it's it's like it's movies such such a comfort you know. Tv shows that we can bend. You're such a comfort and so for me personally. I know it affects how I how view movies how I rate them and so it seems like the Star Ratings on my website movie reviews dot. Us are different than what they normally are. I think that's why I think it's a natural response to a tough time. I think makes you great movies easier. You know in Grade. You're more appreciative of movies and TV shows and music and books and stuff that can can fill up your time and give you something else to think about so hopefully in the next week we will be kind of back to our routine. I know where we are in the world. They are relaxing. Things will probably keep an eye on the numbers before we do a whole lot But we may be back to our regularly scheduled routine next week if not next week the week after that And looking forward to that. So I know that Travis and Taylor are too. It's it's tough to not only be in your house but not be around your friend and for me personally having a newborn home. We were already on lockdown for that for a couple of months so I'm especially eager to get out into the world. Obviously not until it's safe until the time is right but I'm still cabin. Fever is a real thing But anyway this has been a brief Solo podcast and thank you all for listening again. Movie Reviews Dot us from my Reviews all current Apple podcast spotify. You can listen. Rates cried us. We appreciate it and again. Hopefully we will be back to our normal routine at some point in the near future but this is just been another solo podcasters to help you find something to watch so again. Thank you very much.

August 21 Trevor Fritzler of Friztler Farms / Corn Maze Discusses New Venture

"Northern. Colorado, never stops leader do we. This is loco now presented by the SHANIN agency. Here's Tanner's went. Happy Friday afternoon northern Colorado. Thanks for joining us here on no cone. How presented by the Jeanine agencies we are excited to be with you after a couple of days off. We Are Alive from the ARA collision, Specialists Studios and oboe. Do we have a lot to get to this afternoon We've got no co news that we're going to. Go about a lot of stuff coming out of Fort, Collins Larimer, county but already some some covert outbreaks inside some schools. So we're going to be talking about that a little bit as well. Trevor Fritz if you've lived in northern Colorado for longer than five minutes, you know the Fritz slur farms right I mean it's one of the the I guess tourist attraction if he can say northern Colorado, the tourist attraction. and. It's one of the. Farms you talking about the scary corn maize and it's now they turned it into Canada, Farm Park. But as was stated in a press release, it was sent out talking about, hey, they had fallen on some pretty hard times, trevor? Fritz slur is kind of jumped over into the CBD farming. So we're GONNA talk with Trevor about that and what how much different that is compared to what he was used to doing I mean he was born and raised on the farm I talked Trevor Of Times he was partnered up with Rocky Mount Tap House. So we had that about the love of beer and everything like that and and Trevor is a very interesting interview and we're going to talk to him about why exactly did you go and do what you did and and is it working and can people expect further farm the farm park to be there and ready to go when things get back to normal which I'm hoping very soon, I i. watched a video. Earlier today that actually made me kind of nostalgic. It was a video that was tweeted out from Penn State football game Everybody seeing sweet caroline, and just gave me literally gave me chills in. With something that you know maybe we just took for granted while it was going on right the gathering of thousands upon thousands of people. And there was just something about it like. We're GONNA. Miss that this fall as as everything else that we've missed we always had like this. Like we had. Okay. Maybe by this point, we're gonNA start doing this maybe by this point, we're GonNa Start doing this right now we don't have that and that's where I think it's it's For! Businesses it's scary for individuals. It's scary because. We don't have an end in sight. We've got politicians saying where your mask can do this and we'll tell you when you can stop and that that is kind of scary. Because we have at last reported a hundred and forty three total cases cove in eighteen cases hospitalizations in the entire state. So one hundred and forty three hospitalizations in the entire state of Colorado. That does not seem like something that warrants this extended shutdown that we're in and and this is where this is the point and I didn't mean to dive right into this right off the bat but here we are. that. This either either masks work. and. We can wear the mask and we need to open businesses back up. Or the mask don't work and it's just pushing a certain policy in a certain belief upon the people. That's where we're at. Something's gotTa give. The mask mandate I don't think it's going away anytime soon, I really don't see that happening. But the ten o'clock last call has to end. These fifty percent restrictions have to end. You can't keep killing business. For a hundred, forty, three hospitalizations in the entire state. That just doesn't make sense we've talked about it's been a fine and delicate line to walk right about okay. We gotTA walk. We got to keep the people safe but we got to open businesses and we have to walk that line guess what the lines move and we gotta stay caught up with it. Because the businesses are getting hurt for a hundred and forty-three people in the hospitals hospitals. Were doing tremendous. When you look at the rest of the nation. Colorado is doing tremendous. So why such tight regulations? Why such tight Restrictions on everything. It's time to start rolling those back and I guess that's a little bit of frustration kind of boiled over when I started to see. You know I saw that video the Broncos just announced that there will be no fans in attendance for their first home game they're hoping for limited capacity as soon as we three. It's it's time it is time to start unrolling this. We have the ability we've got the hospitals have the capacity. We can't keep businesses down. We can't keep the mental health of people where it needs to be when everything's closed. That's just not the way that it works. So it's time to start opening some things. All right. We got the opening rant out of the way let's dive into some Noko News You heard US report about the fatal head on collision that happened on Tuesday on. Taft Hill in Fort Collins. The whale the corners have idead the victim Kelly lyle out of the Colorado and reports. They'll in Canada, quarters office on Thursday to find the woman killed in near the intersection of Taft Hill and prospect roads thirty one. Year old Kimberly F read of Fort. Collins read was a passenger in a black twenty seventeen Toyota Corolla that was traveling northbound tapped hill road just south of its intersection with prospect wrote about three twelve pm when it was hit head on by a two thousand, eight mini Cooper that drifted into oncoming traffic for counselees. Services said in a news release read was transported from the scene by amounts to medical center of the rockies and loveline where she was pronounced dead at four ten. The coroner's office said Thursday her cause of death was listed as multiple blunt force injuries. So very, very sad news though don't mail driver the Corolla was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Police said the adult male driver the mini Cooper had serious injuries. Police are investigating whether the driver Cooper was under the influence of alcohol according to their news release criminal charges related to the. Crash have not been announced so very sad news and our prayers and thoughts go out to the family of Kimberly F. Reed who was the victim of a head on crash in Fort Collins on Tuesday Putin Valley Hospital Ads Progressive Care Unit to help free up ICU beds This goes back to what I was just talking about this from Pat. Farrier. Out of the Colorado on. Puerto Valley's Hospital New Progressive Care Unit was under construction months before a worldwide pandemic hit but the new beds will position hospital well, at Fort Collins sees another surge of covid nineteen first of all four collins and Larmer county really never. saw what I would call a surge but that's another argument on Monday morning, the unit bustled with last minute activity as staff waited for the first patients to arrive at nine am the Twelve Room Progressive Care Unit provides a step between lower acuity care and the intensive care unit, which provides the highest level in most expensive care obviously in the hospital patients will move up or down to the new unit as their conditions worsen or improve. So it's like not first class, but it's like a little below that. So they still. A Middle Care Unit progress a progressive care unit. Excuse me nurses will care for patients coming up the accuity scale possibly to move onto intensive care as well as others coming down from an ICU on their way to a medical surgical room said Julie nunly Bhutto Valley Hospital's chief nursing officer This is interesting. I mean this is again opening more the more units more beds this was happening. So before anybody like why are they doing this? We don't have any covert nineteen cases. You're right calm down. You're right they had this in plan before all of this happened so they were able to finalize it now. Would it help if this craziness does take the next step? Yes it would but was this the Meta the the main designed from it no it wasn't. So Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland has to Progressive Care Unit it's cardiac progressive opened in two thousand, ten followed by Surgical Progressive Care Unit in two, thousand, sixteen both have twelve beds in average eleven patients per day according to UC health it was a request from our medical staff who's on increased level illness among hospital patients nunnelee said today it comes to fruition. So that is exciting news able to take care of of what they needed to get done. And Take that next step in in in adding that progressive care unit onto onto excuse me poodle valley hospital. If you want to get in on the conversation nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten or text the KFC text line at three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, Fort Collins is taking county to court yet you me, right? Fort Collins is taking Labor County to court over what you might ask this has to be something serious Fort Collins. Really. Asked to be pissed off county, it's over an electronic billboard from JC Marmaduke out of the Colorado and it's legally appealing. Lamoure. County commissioners approval of new electric billboard just outside Fort Collins city limits, Kenny Commissioners June approved the construction of the thirty foot tall billboard on state land fund property at the northwest corner of Harmony Road and interstate twenty five adjacent to fort. Collins. arapahoe been natural area in exchange for commissioners approval for the electronic. Billboard St Media Group agreed to take down five other billboards in the Fort Collins area. The land where the billboard would stand is in Fort Collins Growth. Management Area meaning the city expects to annex it the city as previously express express numerous concerns to county staff and the board about the billboard and its potential negative effects and decided to challenge the Commissioner's decision in Larimer County district. Court after unanimous council vote in executive session Tuesday according to a city news release. Mayor Way Trachsel said we respectfully disagree with the county's decision to allow billboard we feel the installation of this type of structure would have major. Consequences and it does not reflect city standards and priorities which have been developed over years and public input where I mean okay you can say you feel like it would have undesirable consequences. What are they? The city disagrees with the billboard placing because it would interfere with the recently approved harmony gateway plan, which envisions a naturalistic gateway to the city southeast entrance has this have negative effects on city natural areas and wildlife and conflict with city codes according to the news release the county, the county commissioners are I mean they can't catch a break right now? Honestly. They really can't they I had the the project that they're getting a bunch of heat over and that's GonNa be interesting. They're going to have public comment on that on Monday afternoon but they're they're taking some heat right now over and I guess this is good news like they're taking heat over non covert nineteenth stuff like that means we're getting back to like some sense of people complaining about something else. Right instead of how they're handling Cova nineteen I. Guess you can look at that as a positive way, but you're going to see this anytime that Fort Collins. Starts to build or grow or anything that might disrupt some wildlife areas. You're going to see a fight and it's GonNa be it's GonNa be you know it's going to be a pretty good fight honestly because they are. I don't know what what's the politically correct way of saying that they're a split demographic you have the people who are economically driven and the people who are environmentally driven. Hey, that was pretty well said I think politically maybe the career politics coming up here who never you you never know let's keep looking around no co news here This is something that this was a heck of a PR shoot Greeley School district six break ground on new Greeley West High School estimated opening of approximately one, hundred, twenty, million, dollar building is twenty, twenty two.

Senior class that Christians this But that we're excited about it I mean I think everybody's excited about it grew west if you've been in. High School you know it's time for a new one Do want to end Noko News here on. A very somber note in a very sad note. Coming out of the Colorado and again the missing Rangers body was recovered from horse tooth. Reservoir. Earlier this morning coming from miles bloom heart. Of the Colorado and the body of alarm or county department of Natural Resources Ranger was pulled from Tooth River early Friday morning Lamoure County Sheriff's Office said it received report at nine eighteen pm Thursday that ranger was missing after strong winds struck horse tooth reservoir. The Rangers boat was found on the water but the ranger who was on boat patrol could not be found, which prompted a massive search that included. Boats, drones, divers, and a helicopter. Their interest body was recovered from the water around three thirty am according to the sheriff's office release Friday morning initial reports indicated the search was focused on the area near the Rotary Park. Parking. Lot on the east shore of the reservoir. PFA said during the search the sheriff's Office released did not say in what area of the reservoir the body was found very. Quick quote from Sheriff Just Smith it is with a very heavy hearts. The acknowledged the death of Lamoure County Department of Natural Resources Ranger at Horseshoe threads of our last evening he died while on patrol Sheriff Justin. Smith said that very nice tribute There is a procession of of at least twenty four law enforcement vehicles mostly, Lamoure County Sheriff and Ranger vehicles. Traveled East on prospect road through Fort, Collins, their lights, flashing and sirens silent. One of the vehicles was pulling a patrol boat So our thoughts and prayers go out to again everybody in that Rangers life and anybody affected by this as well. With that note, let's take a break. We'll be back. It's no Noko now on northern cod voice thirteen, ten, Kfi. Party northern Colorado's for. Thirteen ten KFI K. The Block Party Wednesdays from Florida ten PM. AMAC into nocona presented by the Jeanine agencies we are live from the collusion specialist studio. Hope everybody Well, the week is almost over you bow already for the weekend. Hopefully, everybody had a great week starting to kind of get back to some sense of normalcy able to get out. We had a little bit of rain of course. So Clark Johnson has not clerk Johnson. I say he's GonNa come up after me actually at five o'clock. Loveland Indians training camp day thirteen days, thirteen teams but. Clerk hasn't broadcast a game since would have been early early March and the first game broadcast that he had back was yesterday afternoon. Softball Brush Platte Valley and wouldn't you know it? It comes in and there's a rain delay and clerk it's rained on and. We didn't have any rain in the site like it's been. It's been hotter than a hell all week and then boom all and and I'll tell you what else happened is that I washed my vehicle I watch my pickup earlier yesterday. Of course, it's gotTa rain on it. Then right it's gotTa rain on it if I'm going to do that but between the game broadcast and and clan me washing my pickup, we were able to garner some rain which much. I will say that as as the wildfires continued to rage on where do we go here? So this was one story that that I hadn't got to that there is a thirty five year old severance man who was arrested Thursday afternoon after an hour long hours long standoff with the weld. Swat team this from Trevor Rita. The TRUMPIAN please on. Wednesday. Responded to a home in the block of three, hundred block of. Mount Bras Avenue Investigate and earlier disturbance falling the investigation police issued an arrest warrant for Kyle Bursch thirty-five severance on suspicion of second degree assault and domestic violence police attempted to stop bursch in his vehicle but he fled according to police they called off the chase due to public safety reasons, other agencies attempted stops and pursuits and other nearby jurisdictions. So obviously, you start to see this escalate bursch return home late wins I. Why would you return burge return home late Wednesday evening and refused to come out for police police called for the Weld County Swat team in the world can sheriff's Office for Assistance Sheriff's Office Spokesman Joe. Moylan. Said negotiators arrived about three forty five am and began making cell phone contact. With Bush, he repeatedly hung up on a Gauche eaters later prompting them to. Blow down the door and deploy a phone according to Moylan. The SWAT team arrived about ten am. So this a three, forty, five am they arrived ten am is when the SWAT team arrived and began making announcements for Berge to leave the residence Moylan said a flash bang grenade rounds of chemical ammunitions. Munitions were deployed to try getting bursch out of the residence. So, now we're at twelve thirty PM. So, been a long long day already following a final conversation with negotiators bursch began to cooperate and was taken into custody without further incident police booked him at the weld. County jail on the warrant in an additional charge for vehicular eluding. Class Five Felony Class Five felony other agencies that assisted with the? Colin. The eaten winter. Police. Department. So they were able to to get him eventually but I that's just. A. That's a heck of a standoff. The negotiators got three, forty five. So meaning they I mean he had been there for quite some time like quite some time and that's already what Being. That's a long day guy don't do I mean the fact that you get the Swat team called on you goodness goodness. All right. So this is where I wanna go real quick before again on the other side, we'll talk with a Trevor Fritz. Fritz farms about what's going on in his world. But there's already been a couple of positive positive cova nineteen outbreaks, and again, you know how I feel about the term outbreaks that's two or more, and that's kind of where we're at there. They did have a student test positive for Kobe nineteen at Windsor Mental School this coming from an delaney out of the Tribune thirty, seven students and seven teachers at at. Windsor. Middle School are in quarantine after student tested positive for Kobe nineteen this week. Well, Ari four spokeswoman Lisa Loo said Friday morning that. Students test came back positive on Thursday leading to the two week quarantine of the students, the teachers and four para professionals in the seventh grade cohort release said, the district was notified of the students positive tests, Thursday afternoon by the county, Department of Public Health and environment. The student was in school on Thursday, the students and teachers will all revert to remote learning until they are cleared to return to school, the teachers will return to school. September. Fourth the students who are all participating hybrid model of learning this year because of the pandemic will return on September tenth. Fort Lupton had this happen too. So that's two already here in northern Colorado that that have had this happen. This is where and I will say this like it's it's going to be reported, but it is not getting blown up to the to the magnitude that I thought it was going to be. That's what I was worried about. That was soon as we had one student, it would have been i. told you. So you know you can't do this. I thought it was going to be explosive. Haven't seen much of that really haven't heard much of that. It's been honest accurate reporting. And again, I've said it on here bunch there's enough data. There's we know enough about this disease that these kids. Will be okay. They're GONNA get sick. We knew it was gonNA happen but it this disease will not kill these students. And that's why maybe that's why it's been more of a rational way of handling things, which is kind of honestly surprising to me. With Kobe nineteen because we haven't seen that. But is that why that? It's been more responsible okay. We know this I mean, it's not. We don't want anybody to get Kobe nineteen that's not the point but. These kids are going to be okay. They're going to get it. They're gonNA. Get Sick. They're going to be okay at the end of it. So I will say, Kudos, to people for understanding that. Yes these kids are GonNA get sick They're going to go to the quarantine they're gonNA follow the proper protocols. In terms of make terms of mental health and in terms of getting these kids what they need, they gotta be around gotTa be around the friends you gotta be in these schools so. Let's keep this up i. mean let's keep this up and keep looking for it. PRAC physical and sports medicine locations in Eaton and in Greeley they'll get you back better than you were before don't waste that surgery where there it's your knee, your shoulder, your hip what's the national? What is it head shoulders, knees and toes any of those they're going to be able to get your physical therapy handled in it sometimes, they could prevent A. Surgery they can get that muscle back up whatever the injury may be without having surgery done as proactive physical therapy with locations in Eaton and angrily more online at proactive Colorado Dot. com. All right let's get to the bottom of the hour news weather and just second we've got trevor. Fritz. Are Coming up on the other side. It is no co now prison by the J nine agencies on North Dakota's voice thirteen, ten k. f. k.. Dan Patrick the whole show and Colin Coward or a northern Colorado's voice thirteen ten Kfi K.. Welcome back into Noko. Now on this Friday afternoon thanks for being with us. We are live from the auto collusion specialists studios. Hope everybody out. There is having a great week and hey, it's about time to to to head out for the week go and go and enjoy the weekend as we get to our VIP guests joining the program. It is a Trevor Frit slur. And again, if you've been in northern Colorado for more than five minutes, you definitely know about the Fritz slur farms and Trevor. Well, things have obviously been weird and twenty twenty and that's made everybody adapt and you're making some changes in finding a way to make sure that the the Fritz. Are Farm Park and everything like that keeps going through the way of him production. Yes that is correct and spent a difference a different face for we grew. Last, year in two, thousand, nineteen and There's a lot of things that happened in the very do. that as farmers we felt like we needed to get ahead of and take control of so that we can ultimately get back to the farmers and industry with some some integrity and kind of lead the way and this new market space right and this is something that. Like you said a very new talking about him for CBD products well, that CD prices plummeted that's kind of what led to this is that right? Yeah, the CBA I mean. Everybody jumps on the band way last year, and there were tons of acreage that were on and you know the demand meet the supply and and then there was this a lot of bad hands in the industry that came and You know muddled some stuff and it just it was so challenging as a farmer going from a commodity crop wreckage, take your corn and elevator and get paid to figure out how to sell your own oil to a competing market space it just it was very, very difficult and you. Know frankly me and another farmer were a little fed up at the end of the year and decided we had a plan to get this thing moving in the right direction right in. This is something I mean this this isn't necessarily nude forming industry right trevor and I know you can talk about this being a fourth generation farmer but you know when all the hype was about eighty five and in corn driven fuel and and we saw this and we saw federal money start even flow into this and then when that crashed. Farmers kind of took the brunt hit of that as well. Absolutely I mean we were looking at not so long ago, low three dollars corn, and that's just not sustainable for farmer to to keep keep his farm going I mean I'm I'm a fourth generation farmer I'm a young Guy There's probably not a ton of real young guys out there farming right now just because it has been profitable and they wanNA have something to sustain their family and and frankly I don't blame them talking with Trevor Fritz Slur and talking about this new new thing farmers revival you WanNa walk through that Trevor. Yeah. So we are a post harvest, pre extraction, processing company we. Work with him from the drying and even helping with feel harvest. That's the the but we do the the drying and biomass cleaning, and then this year we've partnered with zillow's an extraction company in Erie that we're going to act. Virtually like the elevator for him where this is going to be able to come in and purchase D- biomass from the farmers. So they don't have to wait for a year or more. Some people are still sitting on last year's crop to receive money for their products and we're we're doing all this in a way that we've developed so that the costs can be extremely minimal. So the farmers coming out of the field. So they still have margins at the end of the day. How were you able to get the constant the you know because I it says about a third of the existing market in terms of cars for for the post harvest drying. How how are you guys able to do that? I mean that that's a that's a huge chunk of money. When you talk about as much Hamptons being produces there is. Well, we're probably even more than a third in cost reduction We built a lot of our own equipment in house here and we've. Just really developed ways to understand that this is a get rich quick scheme that everybody was about last year and realize that our margins seemed to be extremely tight. So the farmer can continue to produce this amazing crop and as the industry grows and the demand grows will be able to be able to grow with it and be more realistic about our approach going back to the farmer and. into the industry and some great extractor partners Leo's that can sell directly into the market space talking with Trevor Fritz Ler. Farmers. Revival Trivia you. You mentioned this a brand new post-harvest drying technology. Walk us through the process of how you guys came up with this idea and this plan and I mean obviously with anything new like this to be a couple of bumps along the way. No. We we got creative and understanding the plant I and understanding the way the track homes are held that there's difference in differences from plant to plant each genetic, and there's so many genetics. So we're able to fine tune a machine that we can. Adapt and change to have an understanding of each material that's coming to us and then on top of that this, this unit also acts as a dicara box elation unit which is a fancy word to which basically is been done up to this point with extractors. We've been able to do that on our side upfront, just just to increase volume and and productivity and drive costs down and extraction So we're able to dry and then come back and material if if it's wanted or needed to go into the extractors, which which really helps everybody's Martin along the way. When I think everything that you just said I'm sure right now there's some of our listeners out there are sitting saying holy crap I didn't know there was that much that went into farming and I mean there's a lot that goes into this in especially in a brand new industry like this I mean everybody's you know twisting on stuff and tinkering and trying to find the best way but it sounds like you guys found that you're very confident with. We are we you know we had our failures last year and had a lot of bumps in the road that we've done away with and smoothed out and built the process under one roof a lot of. That were offering last industry happened in multiple different facilities then had to finally end its way up into the extractor and so many people were touching the material. We feel like having it all under one roof where it's drop off and and at the end of the day, you can get a check for your material and and walk away You know that's that's just seems the easiest row performers and let us August headaches Tiger Trevor again, farmers, revival There's a quote here from you saying, the World Needs A. Farmer and we're offering it sustainable crop tons and tons of potential. It is time that farmers earn something for the hard work that they put in for generations on US soil, and there's no doubt about that agriculture has been the backbone I just here in well the northern Colorado but but across the country and we talk about tons and tons of potential you know for somebody that is for somebody that maybe isn't that familiar with CBD in how this product can be used talk through exactly what potential you're talking about? Well I. Think the biggest problem is maybe the lack of education on the plant. The whole CBD is a byproduct of the plant extracted oil from the flower at create. What? Being, mentioned something farmers revival is diving into deep in producing and building marketable skews for is the actual fiber that comes from the plant and the seats that come from the plant and diving into new industries with their anti microbial properties and so we're working with the entire plant as a whole regenerate fitness at the plant. Even the ball itself holds something that this industry needs not just in. The agriculture industry, we're talking textiles we're talking straws I mean the opportunities are endless with this plant as a whole and I believe the farmers should be able to collect the revenue stream from the whole plant and said of just a byproduct of IT Trevor I've talked to you quite a bit I mean there's no doubt that your pass passionate about this. So what's next I mean what's next for farmers revival? Well farmers revivals. Main goal is to revive farms. In the hopefully across the entire United States. But starting here in Colorado and so every step we go diving into this fiber industry. Wholeheartedly, we've developed some extremely great products from it and finding markets and outlooks for it is really to go back to the farmer and said, he looked you can make money again in this crop and it's education education education. How do you do it? How do you drive your your Costs. Down with this plant and how can we get the most bang for your buck out of it? Would you have thought five years ago this is what you know. If we're doing an interview in in in, would this have been something that you thought you would have been doing five years ago Tanner at you know the. I can't even. Yeah. It's everyday is a new hat in this industry and you know we're focusing in and lease are focusing on all the things that we're doing right and were exploring new options and trying to create an entire industry around plant that that really benefits the farmer in. The in game so I know the first question that we're going to get asked trevor is to as well. What does that mean for the foreign park because there's a lot of people that that are very interested on what you guys do, and of course, such a such a tourist attraction for northern Colorado is the farm parks I mean is still going to be up and going is your data handling that where does that stand? You Bet. So the farm park, we've been working closely with the health department and and all the you know authorities to ensure that we can have the safest attraction going forth into this year, and we at this point or planning to open and are continuing to work to make sure that we meet all the regulations and requirements who this. Pandemic time and season. But yes, the Foreign Puerto is going to go full force We're pushing that and and we think that's a great opportunity for people to come out and learn while they're there as well. Yeah that's I. Mean that's gotTa. Be Nice for you as well like like you said to learn about this and and was this something. Last. Couple of questions here for you trevor was this something that you were taken aback with how much science goes into a CD because like I like I said to, and like you said, is that not many people stand maybe the full effects this is a new field. How much is how quickly is this field changing and we're caught off guard a little bit maybe by how much information there is out there about it. Yeah well, actually, I was stunned with how little of information? And and I think the you know the education piece of CBD finally caught. It's buzz luckily in Colorado we've been you know we've been a illegal state, the cannabis sector for while then you far bill came out with some guidance but there wasn't a ton of information you know especially on the farming side and preprocessing side and all the steps you know people a lot of farmers. Were caught last year knowing they'd had to grow the crop but not understanding the expenses that went into the host, the pre extraction pieces of the the the things that we handle the drying, cleaning the million to certain micron to make sure it's ready for extraction how it increases you go how changes your marketability, the CBD concept, how we can bring that up all those things yes. The willing. But we've learned we need to stay in Arlene and that's why when we partnered with. They do the science stuff, the extraction they're extremely reputable great company got this down to a science. Truly. So staying in our lane, it's been very helpful with that trevor appreciate your time this afternoon and my friend any last things that you want to throw out there. Yeah if if you're farming or one a farm or crop this year, you know feel free to reach out to us. We're we're available by phone at nine, seven, zero, six, one, four, three, one, five, one, and we'd love to talk to you, Trevor. Thank you so much. My friend. Good luck and thanks for do what you do and what you do man. Thanks thanks. It is Trevor Fritz. Slur. with farmers revival so taking on a new endeavor and Kudos to him on that because you know sometimes. Sometimes you know those farmers they they. There are these different things like the eighty five in the ethanol like it was pushed. So hard and everybody's switched over to it because federal money was coming in and there was money getting backed behind it well when that bubble pops then. Trevor said you've got way more supply than demand for it and it's an issue it really is and you're seeing this now with CBD. So He's getting he's getting creative with us and and again pretty interesting. Pretty interesting stuff farmers revival that is that is Trevor Fritz. Right this is no co now presented by the J nine agencies. Let's take a break. We'll come back on the other side wrap this bad boy up this co now on northern cowardice voice thirteen, ten, KFI A. Here, mornings with Gail Weekdays. Six to nine in northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen, ten KFI. Welcome back in the Outer Collision Special Studios. It is no co now presented by the Jeanine agencies I told you guys this on Tuesday. That is that Mark Larson said the best of Greeley for State Farm Insurance Agents and I will tell you what I voted for him. He deserves your vote to any say, well, how can I vote for him? I don't even know him shame on you go get to know him. He's got the lowest car rates right now lowest car insurance rates. That you need and it is mark. Larson Colefax is filling in today he's pulling double duty. So he's doing some pre production workforce in heat he. His eyes just lit up. He's like. Isn't it ridiculous? Like car insurance can? Be Really, really expensive and it's like one of those things that you don't even think about that often and it's like Oh. Damn I need to pay my character it's and it's like way harder than you expected Mark Larson's state farm insurance. Agency. Even if it doesn't work to the point where okay. Maybe you do have something lower maybe you like where you're at, you can at least talk to him and say, Hey, here's where I'm at. To offer what are the differences and I can guarantee you. He'll take you in the right direction nine, seven, zero, three, five, six, eighty, seven, hundred, Ninety, seven, zero, three, five, six, eighty, seven, hundred appreciate a marks sponsorship here of Noko now. So this I mean, this is normally where we get into the headline calm I but I just wanted to to take some time and and talk we had two very sad stories that we talked about in Noko News this this afternoon just keep in mind. There's a lot of hate being spewed out there from everybody both sides I've talked about there's idiots on both sides of the Aisle these idiots in this world. Keep in mind that life can be taken from you. That quick and keep in mind what your last word might be to somebody and I'm not getting on my pencil because I'm guilty of it too. But I think it's times like this where we can sit back and just look at it and and use this as a reminder to be nice to people to take some time out of your day to ask how are you doing? Is there anything I can do for you because people are stressed and people are are in tough spots. So you never know when how long we've got on this earth so just trying to be nice.

A bunch of protests are just came down rushing toward the prudential center on edison avenue. You could see if you take a look behind me. In most of these protesters testers are residents here in newark who are trying to call out the city right now for holding the a._m._a.'s instead of cancelling the b._n._a.'s in wake of the going carrying ye. You've been covering the newark water crisis in the star ledger. What's behind these protests. We saw this week week. The lead crisis has gone a lot of attention recently but really this problem dates back to twenty sixteen when levels began to spike in the public school system annual water contamination tests set newark's public schools were conducted between december and february newark school planning to seek the consent of parents of students to conduct blood testing for lead into thirty schools with elevated levels on tuesday on wednesday. The district turned turned off water at thirty schools after results revealed unsafe lead levels and they shut off about four hundred sources of drinking water and they pass asked out bottled water to children who were thirsty short answer the mayor's call and delivered more than thirty thousand bottles of water after the city cut off the drinking water at thirty effect at schools and this this came at a time right after flint so at that point there was a lot of alarm over whether this could be another flint but the district at the time move pretty quickly to replace all all of the old let plumbing in the schools avenue filtration systems and implement a more robust sampling plan so they know whether this continue to be a problem did they find out what the source of the lead was in the schools officials at the time said that this was an indoor plumbing problem. The lead was coming from old awards. Lead solder oils lead faucets old led fixtures and those were subsequently replaced so it sounds like it's still limited problem at this point in two thousand sixteen right fast fast forward to two thousand seventeen. That's when we started seeing lead levels citywide prior to two thousand seventeen newark was on a three year testing cycle so they basically had to sample fifty homes every three years as a twenty seventeen they had to sample a hundred homes every six months and the first time that the sampling we saw big nick problem more than ten percent of the sampled homes were above the federal limit for light which fifteen parts per billion. How bad is that as anything less than that okay. This is just a bar set by the government. That says you know if certain percentages of your samples are over this threshold. You have to take action but there's no safe level of lead for consumption at all. I mean it has affects primarily on children pregnant women when it comes to cognition when it comes to development lead lead is in the water lead can be in paint. Let could be in dust. It's in multiple different areas and children can be exposed in multiple different ways <hes> so in june two thousand seventeen they they have these sort of alarming citywide results what came from that announcement what happened next at that point. The city issued an alert and a ah announced that they were starting a program to replace the source of the lead which is these lead pipes that are snaking underground so is that where the leads been coming from. I'm not the actual source water pipes lead is coming from the infrastructure newark gets its water from different reservoirs ores in the state and that gets treated and pumped through a distribution system so the lead is coming from these pipes called lead service lines which are the size of a garden hose and they basically connect individual homes to underground water mains water mains are kind of the big pipes that run in the middle of of residential streets so these lead service lines are the connector to each individual home to pump water and in newark. There's about thirty six thousand service lines and about eighteen gene thousand of those are made of lead. There's a ton of lead piping under newark. How is it only a problem now so there's as a treatment called corrosion control and this is basically a set of chemicals that gets pumped into the water as it flows through the distribution system. It's supposed to react with the lead in these pipes to create a crust like a protective barrier to keep that lead from dissolving into the water and so when that failed you essentially having corrosive highly acidic water flowing through these pipes causing the lead to dissolve into the water and come out of the tap yep so it's a twofold problem like an infrastructure problem and then a failure of treatment problem. I see so if you have lead pipes. It's not necessarily the -sarily a problem if this corrosion control system keeps working ideally no right. I mean if a water treatment plant is operating as it should you have to protect against you old infrastructure and led the could be leaching from these old pipes. Do we know when this treatment system stopped working or why it stopped working. The city hired an outside engineering nearing company that drafted an extensive study looking at this and all that report could tell us is the treatment failed sometime before two thousand seventeen which is when we saw the lead levels spiked as to what caused the treatment to stop working sometime around twenty twelve there was a new rule meant to prevent possible carcinogens indigenes from being in the water and to meet this rule this treatment plant that we're talking about the pokorny treatment plant lowered the ph of the water and in making the water more acidic take the water became more corrosive and rendered this corrosion control treatment less effective over time wow so they were trying to solve another problem than in created this exactly that's called simultaneous compliance or trying to comply with a medley of everchanging standards and rules and so it seems like in an effort to prevent possible carcinogens from being in the water they lowered the ph rendering the cruise control treatment less effective over time. Okay i feel like i have a solid understanding of how these pipes hypes work now. So let's jump back into the time line twenty sixteen we see let in the water and some schools two thousand seventeen we start seeing lead levels citywide and then twenty eighteen is when the n._r._d._c. gets involved is that right yes the natural resources defense council and they are our water advocacy group and they sued in flint a few years back and successfully won their lawsuit and they came to newark and started making a lot of public records request to find out how about are the lead levels roles. What's been the city's response and from what they found. They weren't satisfied. Eventually they ended up suing the city in federal court in june two thousand eighteen. The lawsuit claims claim state officials ignored federal law when they fell to treat drinking water for corrosion leading to dangerously high levels of lead and lawsuit is still ongoing and what was supposed to happen with the water in the meantime the city handed out these three nine thousand filters and that was supposed to be the short term fix while the changes treatment and made a better and while the city also so dug up these old pipes and replace them with copper pipes today the mayor announced corrosion control system is no longer effective and home filtration systems are needed study showed that corozzo control presently being used <hes> has not been effective in various parts of the north ward parts parts of south ward the west ward and essential war the treatment process can take up to a year to get remedied and then the replacing all the pipes was supposed to take eight years to a decade okay to get remedied so in the meantime they said look use filters but what happened in august is that three homes were sampled post filtration so this means that the water water went through the filter which are nationally certified and when they tested that water to water filters came back where to lead was not reduced to a level that we were comfortable comfortable with these are filters that have been used across the country they've been used in flint and have been found around to appropriately and effectively remove lead and make the water safe to drink and they weren't doing that here. Newark they were removing lead but they just weren't not removing lead at the levels that they should have that prompted the e._p._a. To get involved really say to newark like you have to provide an alternate source of drinking water until we figure out what is wrong with these filters that prompted the roll out of seventy thousand cases of water to affected residents from brushing teeth to cleaning produce to cooking. Almost everything is done with bottled water. August ninth is when the e._p._a. Sends a letter to the city saying we're. We're recommending strongly that you distribute bottled water by that monday august twelfth. The city rolled out its plants distribute bottled water by tuesday. We find out that i bet this bottled water which had been provided by the state from their emergency. Supply was past its best by day and the water bottle distribution was halted residents. It's headlined up at several locations to pick up the water provided by the state but we're frustrated by the latest headache water doesn't expire but for residents that better frustrated that aren't really sure what to believe to read this on the bottle that it's it's passed its best buy the best day was made twenty nineteen. It just raised raise more concerns and and more fear about whether they drink this water. The water problem in newark is getting real bad almost like point mentioning may have a rocket raka is worse than the officials in flint because he knew this. It makes me feel angry. It's a situation that wasn't control before it got. This bad water is right water. Water is a human right a new batch seventy thousand more cases of bottled water rolled into the city tuesday night and you know the distribution resumed in a lot of people people were saying you know this is this has been going on for three years. We've been hearing about letting the water in the city since two thousand seventeen. Why are we getting bottled water right now. Mm-hmm what's been the response from newark mayor ras baraka recently. The mayor has been trying to assure residents that the waters i have led that they're not flint and that the city is moving as quickly as possible to fix the problem. I will control the hitter stopped working. We didn't purposefully take get out of the water so to make a comparison is not only disingenuous to me is almost insulting and is mayor baraka right is what's. It's happening in newark different from what happened in flint in meaningful ways. I think there are some differences but i think there are some similarities one of the things that the mayor likes highlight as a as the difference is that in flint they switched their source of water to save costs and they didn't treat that water properly in newark. The water source has always always remained the same. It's reservoir water. That's never changed and the treatment to the corrosion. Treatment has also stayed the same. It just stopped working because ph levels were changed but flint anouar both predominantly black and brown cities. We see similar infrastructure problems. Newark won't be the last city to have a lead problem. There are other cities in the state that have elevated levels in the water and several cities across the country that have these very same lead service service lines so then do you expect to see this and other cities and towns in the future that's unclear. I think newark and flint are forcing a lot of towns to reckon with the infrastructure to take a look at you know do they have lead service lines to even have an inventory. I mean a lot of towns that by newark water don't know if they have have lead service lines or copper lines like a lot of these records are old does not clear if it's reliable a big problem is that in a lot of these towns these service lines are privately the own their own by homeowners so it's a question of who should pay and how are we going to pay for it but you know some homes in newark have elevated levels but don't have a lead service lines so that could mean that the water is corroding lead faucets lead solder other lead components in your home that you may or may you not know about that. You may have to get you know inspected but that's really on the homeowner right. That's not necessarily something. The city can do so what's the latest update are are they just in wait and see mode using questionable filters and drinking bottled water. There was a big announcement in the city on monday. That actually significantly expedited one of the long term fixes potential light at the end of the tunnel for newark residents who are impacted by the crisis of lead in their water newark. Mayor ras baraka made a major announcement about the issue we actually announced as we said earlier one hundred twenty eighty million dollar investment made possible by essex county improvement authority to expedite the modernization of newark's drinking water and infrastructure at no cost to affected homeowners. One of the fixes here is to get rid of the source of the problem which is these old lead pipes dig them up out of the ground and replace it with copper and and the city had a plan to do that for seventy five million dollars but it was gonna take eight years and with additional funding from the county where newark resides they were able to get one hundred twenty million dollar loan and they're going to be able to get that money upfront and what that's going to be able to do is it's going to allow the city to more quickly. Replace these service lines so that narrows down the window to three years so citywide there should no longer be lead service lines in the next three years and the city is also rolling out its new treatment plans new corrosion rosen plan that <hes> those new chemicals have been added to the water since may and that's gonna take six months eight months up to a year to be effective and over the the next six to eight months while the new chemicals are taking effect. What are residents supposed to do. That's to be determined so we know that the sampling plan that the state and the city of doing to figure out what is wrong if anything with these filters is going to take two weeks. We're not really sure what's going to happen after the city and the state figure out what's happening with the there's a lot of that will depend on the answer and so for the next two weeks we know residents are going to have to rely on bottled water <music> and have you spoken to anyone in newark. That's had to deal with this that stands out in your mind. Yes i spoke to one mom last week and i think her story is really indicative of this whole journey that we've seen the city go through i mean her son is ten years old now. He he has elevated lead levels in his blood and his former school was one of the elementary schools that had its drinking water shut off in two thousand sixteen because there was elevated lead levels in the building his home where he lives with his mother has lead paint and the home also has led service line. Is there any way to know how that might abducting her child. She told me that her son has learned disability and she's noticed that he's regressed in the last couple of years. He has elevated blood lead levels but it's really hard to say well. It came from the paint. It came from the school that came from the water because it's hard to know how or when that child absorbed the contaminant another mom that i've spoken to her child was also tested and had elevated levels in his blood but she had her home home inspected by the city and she does not have let service line so that raises the question of where is this coming from and what the solution to that is yeah. That's really tough. If you can't even trace back the source of the contaminant that you're finding your child's blood. How do you go about trying to solve this problem right and and she doesn't have a let service line. Her line is not going to be changed. I think at this point she's relying on bottled water and waiting for the city's new treatment to take effect and hopefully hopefully that will reduce levels coming out of her tab and in terms of sort of repairing that trust. Is there anything that we've learned from what happened in flint about about when people will start to believe that their water is safe to drink again. That's a really big question <hes> for the city and for the future of newark's newark's water. I'm not sure i think in flint. We've seen some reports where people don't trust the water and i don't know when they will <music>. We're starting to see a little bit of that in newark where residents aren't really sure who to believe and this as trying trying to put out information but there's so much of a national spotlight right now on the city of newark and at this point it's a little bit late right given event of the messaging that the city has put out in the past. It's sort of hard to go back so i. I don't know i don't know where that's gonna. Leave the city in terms of will the residents be able to trust this water in the future. I mean the water treatment will be fixed. The lead pipes will be fixed. I don't know if you could say the same thing about public. Trust in the water mm-hmm hearing ye is the newark reporter for nj advanced media work also appears in the star ledger. We reached out to the newark mayor's office but they hadn't hadn't gotten back to us with a comment on this story by publishing time.

Missed Opportunity to Invest to Jack Ma with Rajeev Gupta

"There was a little man standing in the corner foot eleven and he had this ambitious plan changed the way that China, and Greta China, specifically impossibly the world would trade commerce, and that ended up being Jack Ma and my worst investment has been not taking that meeting in nineteen ninety eight and investing in technology, full heartedly. Hello, fellow risk-takers in welcome to my worst investment ever stories of loss to keep you winning in our community. We know that to win an investing you must take risks. But the win big you've got to reduce it. My name is Andrew stance from a stock investment research. And I'm here with featured guests Rajiv Gupta. Rajiv? Are you ready to rock? Absolutely, andrew. Let's rock this. Let's do it. All right. So let me tell the audience about you. Rajiv Gupta is a partner at album capital. He has twenty years of experience investing in and building technology companies Reggie began his investment career, Goldman Sachs where he worked for almost a decade in the investment group in Hong Kong, Singapore and New York with a focus on listed and unlisted technology companies Rajiv, then used his technology investment experience as a portfolio management at manager at both Tribeca and Merrick's capital where he ran global. Funds you then built his own twenty five person technology startup called gecko life before he's Sambo seeing on the capital Rajiv has an honours degree in law, finance and all my God. This one is scary econometrics from the university of Sydney, but gee, take a minute fill in any further tidbits about your life. Andrew thank you for the welcome. I also am passionate not only about technology investing. But also, my family I have four kids from the ages of five to twelve. So it's an intense household in the evenings. And when I'm at work, we generally made somewhere between night and ten companies, and I love doing that every day of the week outside of work and family, I like to travel I love watching television. And I'm not a barrister about it. Currently watching Ozarks on Netflix and loving every episode others. In addition attaching go skiing and through that other Balazs fifteen to twenty. I've busted my hip. I've done three ICL's, and I'm an old, man. And I'm not even sixty. One thing is visiting, you know, meeting with companies, why do you meet with companies? I just wonder now some people say they meet with companies to learn the story some say they want to see if they can trust management. Some people say you're not gonna get anything. They're not going to disclose anything to you that they haven't disclosed the market. Why do you meet with companies? So it's a combination of a few things because we're meeting listed and unlisted companies. You will certainly see delineation in the information that a share listed companies are generally more cautious. And we'll share information that they share with the public generally. However, it's the private will unlisted companies that we made win probably more frequently. If I talk about ten meetings die, we're probably getting six or seven of them. And what you goner is knowledge. You learn something new about a person of product a mockery enthused that you get confirmation by. In terms of what some of the listed company site, and you meet the companies of tomorrow. And that's what excites me about doing. What I do day-to-day from an investing standpoint fantastic person, product market and a look into the future. Those are great reasons to meet a company. Well, now, it's time to show your worst investment ever. And since no one goes into their worst investment thinking, it will be tell us a bit about the circumstances leading up to it. And then tell us your story. So my worst investment started in nineteen ninety eight I was looking at Goldman at a time in home call I was summoned from the sixty fifth floor to the sixty eight all my colleague today. Businessperson. That's coming in. You've got to meet him because it could be a big business at some point. So when upstairs went into the conference room of the looking Hong Kong Kaaba, and there was a little man standing in the corner fulfilled eleven Chinese. Individual. And we great at each other. And he had this ambitious plan changed the way that China, Greta China's specifically possibly the world would trade commerce, and that ended up being Jack Ma and through that meeting, Jack Ma for those of you that is the founder of Alibaba. So is nineteen ninety eight met Jack. And there was something that was inspirational about him. He was a teacher. He was trying to do something in an area that he had some knowledge, but executing would have been real challenge. What it taught me was tenacity is the greatest aspect. Someone needs to have when the building the business, and as an investor must be able to detect to nasty, first and foremost, it's a key differentiator, you want your leaders, and you want your operational manages to have tenacity to not give up. We isn't investor. Need to have tenacity to believe in those companies to believe in investment. So from nineteen ninety onwards, I had the benefit being a golden a minute global technology funds to see what was going on in technology, and it was changing every aspect about lives in nineteen ninety eight. My parents refused to have a mobile phone in two thousand seven they refused to have an ipad in two thousand and twelve two thousand thirteen never fused to get a new ball. And here we are in two thousand nineteen twenty automating Jack technology's not only a pot of their lives as part of my lives in this part of my kids lives, and my worst investment has Bain not taking that meeting in nineteen ninety eight and investing in technology full heartedly, I had opportunities to invest in Alibaba. I had opportunities to invest in ten cents at opportunities to invest in Twitter on EBay long before they would public assets. And this isn't as an individual. I did it for the funds always out and the funds did very well. I did. Well. As a result. I didn't supersize sublime worst investment has been eight not having conviction bait not putting my bowls on the line and say not writing things that you hear about. But do nothing about. Through that journey. I have saying companies like as I mentioned Twitter obscene EBay of saying, Microsoft, S interior him say obscene, tencent of saying Tektronix, Hong Kong six not I will these businesses. The funds did very well said very good for investors. I should have made so much money as an individual pooh-poohed may for not doing that the convictions to me is the most most important part of investing, positively and negatively the mind worst investment is not putting more money to work in. What was looking at me in the face people often in finance talk about animal I took about financing to about fund managers specifically, they talk about the efficient frontier in the efficient. Frontier is a job that is in summer in many ways looks like an arc and on that arc by suggests that you should factory Scotto your investments. Some should be high-risk some should be Lois. And I completely disagree with the efficient. Frontier. I think the best way to invest is have a big chunk of what you do. And I'd say fifty percents maybe slightly more in super risky self which will give you at exorbitantly high return. It can also be with zero in the fifty percent in completely boring things that will never go low zero or generally inflation adjusted maybe plus or minus. If you focus on the risky stuff, the risky investments. Yes. They can go to zero. But if you do your work, you have your conviction, you know, that the Matic talking to companies. You will like an enormous return. Think about the individual that backed Travis at Yuba very early on with two hundred and fifty thousand dollars potentially when that company lists next year with one hundred twenty million dollar valuation hasn't been worth four and a half billion dollars. Now that is conviction. The guy made that investment seven or eight years ago is gonna from that small amount to this amount. It'll be worse a small African country, which is extraordinarily semi worst investment is going thinks Pacific, but it is not having conviction. I think not having conviction when you've done the work. You know, this is a very weak way of investing in. I do regret it. But I'm doing something about it. Because lost three or four years. I've had high conviction Inc. Themes, and I'm playing the very hard willing to lose hope by win fantastic. Ethic. So let's try to help our listeners out imagine that guy that's sitting there. He's got the conviction in the store. He's about to make the same mistake that you made of not getting into it. Now, it's very important that we highlight the the two things you said, you've got your C Maddix. Another words, you know, your theme what you're playing and you've done your research. So once you've got those two things in place. The what is the feeling that you felt or that that guy today that man or woman is feeling like, I'm not sure and a textbook tells me to be diversified in? What if I lose all this? I mean, those are the feelings that I'm sure you felt and they felt so if they're feeling those feelings and they've done the homework and they've got the the Matic. What is the advice that you and this is gonna skip right into the actionable advice? What is the one piece of advice that you'd give them in that case? If you've done the work, and you believe in the attic, I think you go hod and supersize positions as early as you can and to support that comment, you take some like Warren buffet, however, you want to pronounce it. A buffet is renowned for being the world's best. Invest all customers mind back to two thousand two thousand one technology boom that was occurring than in Boston. And go back to the GMC and go back to twenty ten twenty eleven he is always stayed clear of technology investing, and as it turns out to two and a half years ago. He came out and started to find we believe in apple. But compare the return that he will get on apple from being six hundred billion dollar company to a trillion dollar company these Veda person in nineteen ninety eight's that invested in apple when they launched. The I MAC that individual has basically gone from a four dollar stock up to a thousand. Dollars. Stock. You decide ways think is the greatest return. So the may being early could certainly mean being wrong the bane early. If you believe. The greatest investment you could've. Okay. And I think I'm going to add mine little two cents that and see what you think the first is warning warning warning to the listeners. Remember, what he said was you've gotta have your thematically. Right. And you've got to do your homework achieve is not saying just have a conviction just having a conviction without the support of the evidence and the ability to continue to build either a positive or negative case. You're not you're not you're not you're not playing very safe. So now, let's just talk about conviction from moment. I just looked on Google, and it says conviction a firmly held police. It's a belief opinion view thought persuasion, so remember that conviction is something that's very strong. So we also have the risks that you could be wrong in your really strong. So I think the the thing the lesson that I would say is that build your? Story as as Rajiv's said, build your CM, do your homework, but also never be afraid to try to find someone that disagrees with your conviction and get their input. And I think that's a really important risk management measure, but don't let that persuade you from taking the risk now. Let's talk about the other word that Rajiv mentioned in that is too nasty. The quality. Let's say the quality or fact of being very determined of continuing to exist to persist to nasty what a great thing to look for in a CEO. And the fact is that doesn't come out through an annual report to the financial numbers as we started. This whole interview we started with the idea of why are you meeting companies? And I think what we learn from this is that you can if you can spot tenacity. In a good, you know and find a good person with a good idea. Then you've probably got something you should back for a long long time. And I'll tell you one personal story about tenacity when I was a young guy in one thousand nine hundred ninety three I became an analyst in Thailand. And I found my dream job. I'd love to be an analyst in my best friend, Dale Lee came to visit me from the US, and we basically decided to set up a coffee business in Thailand that was twenty three years ago, and I can tell you our sales started in nineteen ninety six we were hit by the ninety seven crisis. We were crushed. We lost all of our customers. Almost all. We had a factory roasting coffee. We had our staff, and we literally I lost my job working at the time at peregrine, some some of my this, Houston will know peregrine, Hong Kong investment Bank. And I lost my job. We moved into the factory to survive. And what I learned after many years as it took us to get on our feet after that ninety seven crisis, which was a massive crisis in Thailand was at my business partner, Dale had to nasty. He also had sincerity. In what he did throughout that time was to never give up on the idea number one. But also never betray the other stakeholders in the business, and I say that when I say about partnerships. I always said there's only two times that you have to worry about conflicts in partnerships when you're losing money, and when you're making money, otherwise, you don't have to worry. And when we were losing money. I saw the true nature of DALE'S Tanaz and sincerity, and that may mean winning to invest everything I could in what he believed in what he did. And twenty three years later, we have a thriving coffee VDB coffee roasting company that I'm going to go after this call to meet with Dale. So that's my story of tuna city. Other is anything else that you'd like to add did I miss anything? You know, the other comment I'd make on that is add from me, you and dial had. Conviction in coffee, roasting coffee, and you had to individuals that understood business and one was particularly strong with tenacious. I think that combination is critical. Sometimes we tend not to look at the financials or look at valuation because you can sometimes fall into a value trap. And sometimes you could miss something because it seems expensive tonight but apple uphold olas look very expensive to to some people and clearly to Warren Buffett when it was the six hundred billion dollar companies still looked cheap. Right. So numbers can sometimes be very deceptive on the numbers should be seen as something that's supportive. You cannot ever trade person individual thematic and tenacity. They will always Trump financials valuation. A man let's wrap that up in a bow listeners. You've got another story of loss now to keep you winning to find more stories like this, previous episodes and resources to help you. Reduce your risk. Visit my worst investment ever dot com. As we wrap up Rajiv. Thank you again for coming on the show. I know it's painful talking about are losers or in this case are missed opportunities. But our listeners are learning to win as a result. Do you have any parting words for our audience? If you come across anything in technology that sounds dumb tonight. You can be almost guaranteed. You look back in ten years inside. Why did I not supporter? So if you think something's dumb don't be dumb. All right. That's a wrap on another great story to help us create grow and protect our wealth, fellow risk-takers. I'll see you on the upside.

Allies on trade russia and climate change into it amount to anything plus in a move that could millions for trump's business the president pitches his florida resort as the site for next year's g seven it using his farewell news conference to tout its abundance of parking and finally good news for the residents of newark new jersey. Who's water contains dangerous levels of lead but more waiting lies ahead. This eleventh hour monday night starts right now good evening once again from n._b._c. news headquarters here in new york. I'm steve kornacki in for brian williams who has the night off day nine and forty nine of the trump administration. The president is back in washington. After a weekend of erotic behavior unexpected pivots in romania statements in front of some of america's closest allies at the g seven summit in france aside from brazenly pitching his own miami resort as the location for next year's g seven more more on that later trump closed out the summit with a new line on a possible trade deal with china and a new set of claims janika last night. I'm trained people and say. Let's get back to the table. Do you had many calls over the last twenty four hours but certainly over the last forty eight hours so the chinese are saying that there weren't aren't any decrees and that saying that an excuse me let me explain something vice chairman of china. Do you get higher than that other than presidency the vice president the vice chairman flight the vice president the vice chairman made the statement that he wants to make a deal now whether or not we make a deal. It's got to be a great deal for us. The president xi is a great leader who happens to be a brilliant man and he can't lose three million jobs in a very short period of time. Trump was asked about his various statements about negotiations with china and quickly became defensive this from is the back and forth the changing statements from yourself so that salary negotiate. Is that a strategy a strategy called old president xi of enemy one day and then say that relations then negotiate. It's done very well for me over the years and it's doing even better for the country trump also had a lot to say about iran that nation's foreign minister appeared at the g seven summit on saturday french president macron who was trying to preserve the two thousand fifteen nuclear agreement trump abandoned invited foreign ministers. The reef at the last minute trump did not meet with him today. He did not rule out future meeting. If the circumstances were correct toward the right i would certainly agree to that. We're not looking for leadership change. We're not looking for that kind of change. We're looking for no nuclear weapons. No ballistic missiles macron instead. He talks between you and president ronnie within weeks. Does that sound realistic to you. Could you see yourself in talks with your audience with him as i don't know the gentleman i think that i think i know a little bit just by watching over the last number of years what's happened tell you one thing is great negotiator but he i think he's gonna wanna meet. I think iran wants to get this situation. Straightened out. Vladimir putin was not at the summit in person but trump made sure he wasn't forgotten. The president continued to advocate for russia's readmission to the g seven. I think that having president putin in what was the g eight hey he was a member of the and i heard he was a good member of the g at having a minute i think is more of an advantage because you're also russia's foreign foreign ministers saying that it's not air foreign policy pursue to return to eight. What's your reaction well. We'll see i know i know one thing if they were invited back. I think they'd be there. Trump also read reiterated the false allegation that president obama push russia out of what was then the g. eight because he was embarrassed. When russia annexed crimea from ukraine which was the official reason for russia's suspension from the g eight in twenty fourteen fox news had this fact check president trump says the russians were removed from the group because president putin outsmarted president obama that is not true through the decision to remove russia from the group was unanimous. The reason putin invaded and annexed crimea nevertheless trump managed to bring up his predecessor's name more than a dozen times look at what they did to get the deal look at what they did to john kerry and to present in an obama a very very big important area in the middle east with red line was drawn and then president obama decided that he was not going to do anything about it. I know you like president obama but it was annexed during president obama's it was sort of taken away from president obama and not taking away from president trump taken away from president. I don't know bama but president obama was unable to stop it. President obama was pure. Him simply outsmarted somebody had to do this. This should have been done by president obama. Among the president was a no show at the meeting on climate change despite worldwide concern about fires in the amazon given trump's past skepticism about climate climate change. It may not be surprising. He was not at the meeting but here's what he said when asked about it the in fact. It's going to be our next session but we haven't had in fact though the meeting had already the happened here is trump's empty chair while other leaders opened the talks. According to the white house press secretary the president had scheduled meetings with germany and india however her photos of that meeting show the leaders of both germany and india at that meeting well trump's chair remains empty waiter trump was asked about his past comments on the impact climate change. There was a significant talk about climate change. I know in the past. You've heard some skepticism of a scientist comma change. What what do you think the world should be doing about climate change and do you still harper. That's up to them. I feel that the united states has tremendous wealth off. The wealth is under its feet. I've made that wealth come alive. I'm not gonna lose that wealth. I'm not gonna lose it on own on dreams on windmills which frankly aren't working too well and along with all of that there was this from trump about the first lady in north north korea's dictator with respect to north korea kim jong on gotten to know extremely well. First lady has has gotten to know kim jong un. I think she agree with me. He is a man with a country that has tremendous potential. You may not recall seeing any images of the first lady and kim jong hoon together because as the white house press secretary explained they have actually not met quote president president trump confides in his wife on many issues including the detailed elements of his strong relationship with chairman kim and while the first lady hasn't met him the president feels like she's gotten gotten to know him to your leadoff discussion on a monday night philip rucker pulitzer prize winning white house bureau chief for the washington post christopher dickey veteran foreign correspondent ended in paris based world news editor for the daily beast who happens to be with us in new york tonight and tamra keith the white house correspondent for n._p._r. Thanks to all of you for being with us. Oh chris let me just start with you. Maybe to put this in some bigger picture perspective these g seven g eight. Whatever happens to be called in any given year. These meetings have been going on on for decades now. This one produced for all of the noise and for all of this sort of chaos. That's been stirred up by by the president's various comments today today in actions over the last few days this did not produce any broad-based agreement between the participating nations on major issues. How different is the g. seven under trump versus past presidents. I'd say it's almost worthless under trump. It was never worth that much to begin with. It was a club of the richest democratic nations and they came together when there was still a soviet union to present a kind of alternative vision. We're rich. We're democratic. This is the model that you should follow they brought in russia in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s because not because it was very rich it wasn't but because they thought it had democratic potential and they wanted to encourage is that vladimir putin basically shut all that the hell is murderous autocrat and trump now basically access is he's a club that he knows he should be black balled in and he runs around and bullies his way through everything and the the only consensus that really existed at this g seven was let's just try and keep him from going crazy because they didn't want it to blow up up the way it did in canada and the last one or even entire amina in italy the one before they wanted trump to just sort of be there make his show show and leave and mackerel president across france he sort of has a reputation as the trump whisper the person who can sort of influence lumens trump although it's been disappointed on a lot of issues and he had a couple of little prizes for trump one is you're going to make advances on iran. We're going to hold that up as a potential central breakthrough and of course trump was busy also touting his new breakthrough with china. I think the one thing that you report didn't mention is he announced that breakthrough through with china before the stock market opened here on monday having crashed the stock market on friday with his erratic behaviour as radic attic statements about china is main thing was that he wanted to see the stock market. Go go up again. This is all tactical stuff and it's all embarrassing but the reason why do we have a g seven anymore. And why are we going to have it at at a trump country club. I if what chris's outlining is perhaps the other participating precipitating nation's leaders viewed this. How does the trump administration viewed. How does the white house fewer do. They think they actually got anything out of this. The president eh seemed pretty happy at the press conference certainly and and you know everyone is talking about him talking about his performance and if they're talking about him <hes> generally speaking he feels like he is winning and and certainly in the case of of today he a was able to go out there and on a number of occasions say so and so wants to make a deal. He says that iran wants to make a deal. He says that china wants to make a deal now. Whether there's actually a deal in the offing or whether this is vaporware and and nothing happens isn't clear at this point but it certainly gave the president another day to to move forward a day when the markets did perform better certainly than they did on friday in phil rucker. I wanna read something you wrote in the washington post. He said the entire forty four year vision of the g seven gathering authoring according to the non u._s. Participants is to hash out global issues among like minded democracy so the discussion quickly turned even more fundamental whether the leaders it should assign any special wheat to being a democracy officials said most of the other participants forcefully believed the answer was yes. Trump believed the answer was no painting a bit of a vivid senior explain that a little bit more. Could you steve senior official who witnessed all of this told hold my colleague michael birnbaum that it was trump himself or a dictator in knows meetings the way he talked about democracy versus other forms of government the way he he defended and even promoted vladimir putin quietly he obviously talked about putin in that press conference but he also talked about him extensively in these private sessions actions with the other leaders really advocating on putin's behalf becoming a cheerleader of sorts of course he said he would plan to <hes> to include putin invite putin to next year's g seven summit <hes> that he plans to host it his own golf course down in florida but it's a really a noteworthy move for an the american president to be advocating on behalf of the russian autocrat and to not be the forceful defender of democracy in that setting given the long history of the g seven fanatic group and previously eight in crystal. You just expressed a bit of a pessimistic view about the role of the lack thereof these days but the united states is due to host it next year. There's the question of where it's gonna be. We'll get into that a little bit later but also this issue of the president going out of his way to say he would like russia back in his group. He'd like putin to come to the united states next year for this session. How will that go over with the other members in plano on it. They said no already they they support democracy and and trump has a real serious case of dictator in the mean he loves to talk about his friendship with kim jong un who is probably the worst higher and live on the planet right now <hes> he loves loves vladimir putin for reasons. We've never really known or understood and and he has all kinds of admiring things to say about jean ping. He doesn't talk about any democratic leader leader in with the same tone of admiration that he tends to turn or even love that he tends to turn on these tyrants now should then then the g. seven be modified to embrace more tyrants. No look there is an organization that does that and that's the g. twenty and in fact when the reason that putin is not pushing to get back into the into the because there is the g. twenty and he can sit around with other tyrants mohammed bin salman on he can sit around with zine ping he can sit around with leaders of the twenty richest countries not the not the <music> seven richest countries and feel right at home. I think probably a president trump would feel more at home in that environment too because the only measure there is money money and the only measure that trump really understands is money not democracy not ideals not human rights not science none of those things wchs just money timur there was that exchange we played a little bit of it earlier where the president was asked about his statements about the status of negotiations with china's china's seem to be all over the place and he basically said at the press conference look. This is how i negotiate. You're saying a minute ago. It's unclear what the status of of the negotiations or lack of negotiations lack of talks is china when the president says look. This is how i negotiate. I think there's a questionnaire in their interpretation does that mean it sort of is a self contained thing. It's it's entirely how trump is thinking about something. As the mo- at the moment or is this does it reflect a broader strategy that the administration is pursuing the administration's strategy is the president strategy and we've seen that repeatedly heatedly and certainly in this case <hes> president trump with these china's negotiations really has been all over the place as michael shear of the new york times pointed out in that question on friday kim <hes> he was referring to xi jinping the chinese president along with his handpicked fed chairman as enemies and now he's once again lavishing praise on she president trump ah going back to win. He was in real estate which of course is very different than international negotiations but he's always been all about keeping people people off balance that has been perhaps the most recurrent character character of the trump administration of the last last two and a half years another characteristic. I think feel that we've seen before and heard before from this president was he invoked his predecessor by name. We'd be played at their multiple times. Barack obama's name coming up the president taking all sorts of shots at him there again something you may not have seen past presidents do edited occasion like this again with this president. It's almost standard. I suppose yeah we'll see there's no norm or tradition or or protocol that president trump feels he needs to honor honor and in this case he wanted to place blame on on president obama even though as as i believe ship smith at fox news for saying in clip you played at the intro it was actually putin who invaded crimea that was steamed a violation of international law by all seven members of the g seven they issued a joint declaration kicking kicking out russia from the group and lane conditions preconditions for for that russia would have to meet in order to come back into the group and that would include recognizing the sovereignty auburn team of ukraine and de escalating crimea which are thinks that putin has not done so trump wants to bring putin back into this organization without russia doing really anything to to atone for its misdeeds one other important piece of context with all of this if trump were to have putin come to the g. seven summit next year in the united states. That's an election shania presidential election year and as we've talked about on this program time and time again the u._s. Intelligence agencies have directly warned the president and the public that russia is trying actively trying to interfere in the twenty twenty presidential election just as they did in the two thousand sixteen presidential election to help trump win that election and so that would be a pretty extraordinary move for this president to to welcome putin to america in an election year while his country is trying to interfere in our election year right right. I mean a year from now. You'll be pretty much moving into the home stretch of the twenty twenty election. That'd be the backdrop for the next. One of these g seven sessions phil rucker timor a keith christopher dickey. Thank you all for being with us and coming up from russia. If you're listening to russia. Are you coming president trump aiming to bring next year's g seven to his florida lord golf resort. We're gonna take a talk to an expert on trump's finances in later forboding numbers for joe biden another new poll out just a few minutes ago. We'll have have that for you. While the former vice president's campaign insists his support is solid the eleventh hour just getting started on a monday night. We have a series of magnificent buildings. We call them bungalows. They each hold from fifty to seventy very luxurious rooms with magnificent views and what we have also as miami and we have many hundreds of acres so that in terms of parking in terms of all of the things that you need in my opinion. I'm not gonna to make any money to make money. I don't care about making money. The united states will host next year's g seven summit and just before leaving this year's meeting. Donald trump made something of a pitch to hold it at his own gulf resort endow florida west of miami that would also give him the chance to host vladimir putin at one of his properties is if russia were readmitted to the g seven or if trump simply invited him today. Trump was asked about inviting the russian leader to the summit. Would i invite him. I would certainly invite him whether or not he could come psychologically. I think it's a tough thing to do. The prospect of a summit at one of trump's properties raises all sorts of questions about mixing his for profit business and the presidency. Here's what trump and his advisors said about potential conflicts after he won the two thousand sixteen election. Do you think he'll turn it over to the family or put it into a blind trust. I'm not ready to re to reveal any of that. People in this country knew and accepted accepted and celebrated this business that donald trump has built throughout the entire life so so now we're working on making sure that all those conflicts <hes> are taken care of his so focused on taking over as president that only focus the only thing he's working on. He's completely getting out of the business handed over to the family. We might two sons who are right here. Don and eric are going to be running the company. They are going going to be running it in a professional manner. They're not going to discuss it with me here to talk about. All this pulitzer prize winning reporter david farren fold all of the washington post david. Thank you for joining us. I was looking back the last couple of times. The united states is hosted the g seven summit. I think in twenty twelve it was is at camp david in two thousand four it was a georgia <hes> it was not at a trump property either one of his recent times the possibility that it would be in twenty twenty ethically legally constitutionally. Are there specific provisions there that that could come up against well. The most important is the emoluments clause in the constitution which was the original anti-corruption that the constitution it says that presidents can't take emoluments movements which means payments from foreign states and so by setting this up this way trump would basically invite that you might even say compel that he'd compelled these foreign states that they want want to go to the g. seven summit. They gotta bioterrorism's from they. Gotta buy food from them. They got to put money into his pocket. A trump has said that emoluments clause shouldn't mean that you just mean bribes. You can't bribe arrived president but it's okay to do business with him but if you believe doing business with the president is a violation of the emoluments clause that an enormous scale he. He said that he was saying look at this happened. He wouldn't make money off of this. Is that a claim you can. You're able to check in in verify no right now. He says that his company donates what it calls foreign prophet so prophets from doing business with foreign governments and so it's only about three hundred and forty thousand dollars to that end to the u._s. treasury but we don't really know what that number represents. We don't know what the overall amount of revenue trump gets is from foreign governments. We don't know how calculates that profit if it figure and even if he's giving away the profits derived is hurting this is this is a resort that is in a lot of financial trouble. What's declined a lot under trump's leadership and so just putting money into it to keep it afloat even if you don't make profits would still be a huge boon for him. It's interesting right. There's the question of what what the direct benefit of an event like this might be an also the publicity city benefit of all the talk about it and get the name out there given what you're saying about its current financial state david farrant thank you for taking a few minutes appreciate it and coming up to important horton numbers from this weekend fifteen thousand and twenty per cent. We're going to get into that at the big board on the eleventh hour continues <music>. Guess what folks. We have another another day another four actually two new polls. You can call today a pick your pull day when it comes to the democratic race for president. There's one that came out early today. I'm going to show you that. I got a lot of people talking because look joe biden. We've seen joe biden all year. Running in first place in the democratic race will in the monmouth poll that came out at this afternoon. Joe biden running behind bernie sanders behind elizabeth warren sitting there at nineteen percent best pull bernie sanders is basically had since is biden gotten the race great news for elizabeth warren. She's been steadily climbing in this race in obviously for biden that a big drop a big drop from what we've seen in other polls. That's a big drop from what we see in the monmouth poll before this now what in this monmouth full was fueling that drop for joe biden a couple of things first question of ideology. We've seen him struggling ling among liberal voters in the democratic race even third-place here but in this monmouth poll moderates and conservatives in the democratic party air are still moderates. There are still some conservatives serves in the democratic electric biden's been cleaning up among them in other polls in this one only twenty two percent barely ahead of bernie sanders so he was struggling there. He had some weakness. Is there also there. Was this age divide again. This is something we've seen it in poll. After poll this year you can basically divide the democratic party. Half democratic voters are over fifty half half are under fifty in the fifty and older category biden leading by double digits poll. We've seen that before but in the under fifty category biden falling all the way down to six percent. We've seen him struggling with these motors in this poll this monmouth poll today. That's as bad as it's been tied with injury the former vice president among democrats under under fifty so that's the point if you don't like joe biden that's the poll you want to be talking about right now but now in the last hour another poll has just come out morning conso also they do a weekly survey of the they've been doing this all year the morning console poll came out in the last hour and look at this. They got joe biden at thirty three percent. They also have sanders at twenty. He's twenty and both of them in warren back fifteen again morning concerts doing a weekly poll for months now. This is where it's been for awhile in the morning console thing so you got one poll. All that's got really alarming news for biden. You've got one. That kind of looks like status. Quo if your average everything together biden still in the lead in this race in the average probably in about the high twenties if you average every poll that's out there but really it got two polls today. You can pick your poll depending on the narrative you want craft by the way the poll that monmouth poll also did did make some news critically next democratic debate middle of september. You have to qualify for these ten. Candidates are on the stage the deadline to qualify wednesday. Hey at midnight one candidate. Tom steiner the billionaire. He is one poll short of the threshold. You gotta hit two percent in four different polls. If you do that that and you raise the money you can get on stage tires raised the money. He's one poll short. He did not hit that number. He did not hit two percent and that monmouth poll today so style fire is still short of qualifying again. He would need some other new poll to come out either tomorrow or wednesday he'd have to be at two percent. Otherwise style tire will not make the debate. Only these ten candidates will end if only these ten candidates to guess what that means all on one stage all on one night all together together one night one stage one debate something we haven't seen yet so keep that in mind if things hold as they currently are coming up after months of the front runner status the biden campaigns forceful forceful response to today's numbers eleventh hour back after this joe biden's campaign pushed back on that new monmouth poll that shows him in a virtual three-way tie with elizabeth warren and bernie sanders is that poll comes as elizabeth warren drew. Another large crowd over the weekend. This woman was out in seattle. An estimated fifteen thousand people showed up to hear her speak at a town on hall for more we welcome to the broadcast natasha correctly national political correspondent covering the twenty twenty campaign for politico and back with us tonight also covering the twenty twenty campaign pain n._b._c. news correspondent mike mentally thanks to both of you for being with us. Natasha let me start with you. It's always interesting when you see these candidates get those giant crowds cbs. Sometimes it seems to mean something you can remember barack obama. Sometimes it doesn't translate when they actually start voting. I remember howard dean back in two thousand three early two thousand for what is it looking like when it comes to elizabeth warren well. There's no question there's a huge contrast with what warren was showing the people that were showing up to warns owns events back in january in iowa and so forth even in massachusetts they were nothing like this <hes> she's creating a movement a bit by bit. She is and and it. It didn't start off this way but it's growing <hes> you know. Will someone able to take her down. Will she lose promo momentum bantam that remains to be seen but so far what's interesting about it. It wasn't like she shot up quickly. <hes> she had actually very difficult bumpy rollout in january but she overcame that and steadily she's growing in not just in the polls but in crowd size in mike again. We showed look there. Is that morning console so pull out tonight so the biden cam sure is that win or genetically are <hes>. If you look inside that police you take the horse race number out of it. One one thing they also did find in there was that elizabeth warren they found among democratic voters to now be the most popular candidate and they just popular in terms of the favorable rating in biden's negatives to have risen over the last few months again with where the exact horserace stands here. It does seem that biden's taken some hits in among at least some. I'm democrat voters. Here as negatives have gone up a little bit. Yes the biden campaign as you say forcefully pushing back on this monmouth poll saying it's an outlier looking at that very small sample size pointing out that in august it's sort of a dead period for polling to begin with this was conducted over a summer weekend and you're not going to get the kind of response rate that you like. They also think that the fundamentals the theory of the case for them is is really still strong that the number one issue for democratic voters continues to be donald trump and who is the best candidate to beat donald trump and they still believe in voters do show so far in these polling still that they think joe biden is that candidate but the risk of this kind of electability polity focused strategy is that it exposes them to these kinds of media new cycles that they hate frankly which is an emphasis too much on a bad poll an emphasis as well on the kind of gas verbal miscues. Whatever you wanna call them that. We've seen mounting over the past month and i also think to the warrenpoint you know as the tasha points out as well the i think she started out sort of undervalued in large part because of the concerns about the dna test this issue and what you've seen over the course of this primary campaign his she's reminding democrats of why they liked her to begin with and so it's really created a situation where we essentially have two three person race heading into the next debate eight into tasha in that first democratic debate a couple months ago. You saw biden <hes> obviously you had that encounter onstage with kamla. Harrison helped her momentarily almond terribly. It certainly seemed to hurt him back then as well. I think now folks are looking at it. Looks like elizabeth warren is going to be on the same stage with biden in the next debate in september. I think wondering if if something similar might happen then well it's certainly the battle that everyone's been waiting for. People have said that fight in the skated <hes> by being able to avoid warren the first two debates <hes> but on the other hand warren has really dominated because she was sort of central <hes> <hes> at least in the first debate and you know with with biden they were with bernie sanders in the second debate <hes> the two of them sort of joined up so it'll be interesting to see how both of them respond how both think on their feet but warren is you know no question a formidable debater in just quickly mike. I'm curious there. Was this widely publicized. I think most folks have probably seen the video over the weekend joe biden in keene new hampshire talking as if he was in vermont. What do you hear from the biden. Campaign ain't about that and about the concerns that it raises a about whether he's up to this yeah i was there for that it was frankly baffling moment reporters there and that guy go looking at each other wondering wondering how he could make that mistake and this is the kind of thing where the biden campaign will respond to say we make too much of an issue out of this that there are other candidates making mistakes on the campaign but we're just trying to play into this issue but that's why as i said this is a matter of of making that elect ability case then that exposes you to these kinds of issues the candidate as i say who can most disqualify joe biden likely joe biden himself all right mike memory natasha correct. Thank you both for being with us all right in coming up today's as breaking developments in the newark water crisis how the city intends to bring safe drinking water back to its residents sooner than anticipated. We're back after this and we actually here to announce. After i said earlier one hundred twenty million dollar investment made possible by essex county improvement authority to expedite the modernization of drinking water infrastructure at no cost to the effect that homeowners after weeks of controversy officials in newark new jersey today revealed their one hundred twenty million in dollar plan to speed up the process of restoring clean drinking water instead of ten years to replace lead pipes officials now say it should take less than thirty months to replace about eighteen thousand service lines in new jersey's largest city proposal still needs the approval of county and city officials who are expected to hold meetings and to vote tomorrow. Many newark residents have been relying on bottled water for weeks in tonight frustration. There is still growing. Dozens of people demanding clean clean water protested outside newark's prudential center. That's the site of tonight's mtv video music awards and earlier today our own ron allen spoke to one newark resident about about today's developments. They said today that they're going to replace. The pipes the bagpipes over the next thirty months okay thirty miles. That's so long he. I understand why they can't doodo enable. Come on that's thirty months. It was going to be ten years now. He years now now. There's speeding it up. Okay well. That's still a long time. It is a long time back with us. Tonight is new jersey native nick courson eighty. He covers his new jersey for the new york. Times also here dr john torahs medical correspondent for n._b._c. news nick well. Let's let's pick up on that reaction because i think when you hear it just thirty months in isolation two and a half years i think everybody says that's a really long time to fix this. You have the mayor there saying. This is a great triumph. Why why is that a fair framing this well. If you go back to march when they first broke ground on replacing their lead service lines it was a seventy five million dollar binding plan it was going to take ten years and it was gonna cost residence up two thousand dollars per household so that's a lot of money in a city like newark where the average median income is thirty four thousand dollars so fast forward today once the crisis is really accelerated. They were able to announce a new one hundred twenty million dollar plan that was going to expedite it from ten years to less than three and eighteen eighteen thousand pipes pipes so the even the ability to do that in thirty months giving some skeptics some hesitation so when you frame it like that it does look like a significant development and it's one of the first bits of good news and progression that we've seen in a long time in newark because we've been talking about the city handing out bottled water residents forced to rely rely on that does that mean there are residents who for the next two and a half years are going to have to stay with bottled water. They certainly hope not all we know so far about the current bottled water distribution abuse is that they've been testing for two weeks. They're going to be testing for at least two more. They have an updated us whatsoever on what these tests are proving <hes>. We asked the mayor today a. and he's going to wait until there's a scientific sample right now. They're working on getting the a corrosion inhibitor in the water set. It's called an ortho phosphate and that takes up to six months but once that set in a worst case scenario. Hopefully they wouldn't need to use bottled water anymore but we won't know when they can stop distributing until these tests are done a doctor tours i we we all know sort of instinctively. You don't want leading your water but but specifically medically for children for adults. What are the consequences inches of that for. Everyone and it's toxic. It's a heavy metal. It gets into our body. It disrupts the cells and how they work and specifically gets to organs of the central nervous system the brain spinal according to the kidneys and the heart it can cause a lot of problems and it's a cumulative process so the more you're exposed to it the more problems it's going to cost. It's going to start building up and that's why three years here's even though it's not going to be ten years three years. That's still very longtime. Six months is a long time to be exposed to lead it affects children especially under the age of six more effects developing being fetuses and particularly their brain their brain development. That's probably the biggest issue can lower their i._q. Can cause cognition issues later on in life for adult hypertension high blood blood pressure type situations so again. This is one of those things that the longer they're exposed to the more problems. It's gonna cost is there. Is there treatment for for somebody who's been exposed. Maybe exhibiting exhibiting some of these symptoms. Is there a treatment for lead poisoning. It's effective so if it turns out that their levels are high and those liberals and people have dropped what we consider standards and say it's high at this point point if they're high the first treatment you do is you remove the exposure to the lead. That's the very first immediate thing you do. Once you remove the exposure. The lead levels will naturally start dropping opping. If they've gotten too high enough level especially in the developing child they can be permanent issues in permanent damage if it gets high enough which means very high in their bodies then there's a medicine call a key location that they can use to try and take the to let out of their body. It doesn't work as well as we'd like to work and it's only reserved for for children have very very high levels but for most of them the the main point is that just remove the exposure as soon as you can the big question i think <hes> the backdrop for all of this is how it ever reached this crisis point in newark in the first place especially ashley in light of everything we saw in flint michigan years ago nick. You're part of a team at the new york times. It really took a dive into this question over the weekend. We're gonna talk about that in just a minute. Nick and dr tours are staying with us and again coming up more on that critical. The critical lessons learned from the drinking water crisis in new jersey's biggest city. That's eleventh hour continues. We mentioned a minute ago but over the weekend the new york times reported on a long long line of questionable decisions that led to the current water crisis in newark our guest nick chorus needy shared a byline the story it reads quote in investigation by the new york times based on dozens of interviews and hundreds of pages of public records reveals blunders at all levels of government in safeguarding newark's water infrastructure city officials brushed aside warnings and allowed the system to deteriorate while state and federal regulators often did not intervene forcefully enough to help prevent the crisis still with with us nick horace needy and dr john torres nick so take us through this because the political response from the city of newark initially when the when they're indications <hes> began emerging was essentially there's no crisis here and you also uncovered technically speaking what apparently happened to trigger this crisis in the first place. If you were to go back to two thousand fifteen it appears that that's when the city started tinkering with with its water a little bit to deal with the problem with them some carcinogens and to do that. They started started making their water slightly more acidic. Now what that did was for for twenty years has been combating lead. It's got these ancient old pipes and they were using this chemical called sodium silicate to prevent the lead from reaching into the water now when they made their water more acidic to deal with one problem kind of rendered the other sodium silicate ineffective now what we found in our reporting is they never did a test before doing that. The state was unaware that they were doing this city. Officials couldn't produce any tests that show that when they were looking to change the acidity they wondered what other the impact that might have in their water so that's what started the snowballing effect for at least from what what our reporting shows that brought us to two thousand seventeen when the first level excedence tests came to newark work now those came in june july twenty seventeen and the mayor was basically his entire message was the waters completely safe to drink. Don't worry here now. There's legal things that the city you had to do like start testing male anyone who's house specifically turned positive test. Those were the random samples that you then extrapolate from so for about eighteen months. The the entire message from the city was these are outrageously false statements coming in about our water and the water is absolutely safe to drink when if you were in one of those fourteen or fifteen thousand households that was getting elevated lead levels in their water from the lead leaching in from the pipes that was not true. The mayor is trying to say that the water source from the reservoir was not contaminated and that that is true you but when it comes to what the residents were hearing and what was coming out of their faucets. There was a significant amount of them. Were that water was not safe to drink a doctor tours when when you read nick story you think about how big this country is in how just common political dysfunction is and you'd have all these sort of intermingling agencies at different levels of government. We've seen it in flint. We've seen it in newark. Are we likely to see this in other places and i think we are because the infrastructure in this country is aged and it's has a hard problem of trying to get that up to date modernized saturn is in nineteen eighty six is when the standard came out saying anything after nineteen eighty six. You cannot have lead pipes in the house so at the e._p._a. Says house built before nine hundred eighty. He's six more than likely has lead pipes or lead solder. The join those pipes together so it could be leaching lead and so those are houses that definitely need to be tested and talk different sources are saying there could be hundreds of cities out there that have similar problems. Maybe even worse problems. We just don't know about them yet. Nick very quickly the mayor just given what you've told us given what you've reported. What's his standing in newark right now. He's an incredibly popular mayor up until this moment. There hasn't really been much controversy much for scandal for bracha raka. He took over from cory booker who was pretty popular but as he left the refu- issues there were some rising crime. Do some budget cuts. There was some corruption the watershed commission under him so up until until now the mayor has been very popular. He's very important. Now i have governor phil murphy and he's pretty well like the round the state which is what's kind of surprised so many people to see how his messaging and his handling i'm dealing with. This issue has been almost contrast how we've seen him when the city so far okay. It's it's a depressing story. Somebody's a fascinating story as well done very well reported <hes> by you and your colleagues appreciate that nick course sneak touched on tourists. Thank you both for being with us tonight and that is our broadcast for this monday night.

"Tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses. Xeni offers thousands of affordable. Eyewear styles starting at just six ninety five. No ridiculous markups. No hassles. Just quality affordable. I wear delivered right to you visits. Any today at Zanny dot com slash NBA. Today show new year new poll like who will be the biggest name to be traded. And who's the two thousand nineteen MVP? Dan, crossfire we make resolutions for teams players and ourselves, and we also dropped some bull two thousand nineteen NBA predictions. It's Wednesday January second the third us. The third us. Good. Turner, presented by Jack Daniels old number seven and Tennessee, Honey. Yes. Both of them. I'm Jay speeds alongside me as always pass Melles. That's the Ozzy Leila's and over yonder. We'll that's the beard one. That's Trey Kirby. Oh, man. Well, I'm here at the internet looking for your best tweets at hashtag, the starters and guys last night. Ben Simmons pulled off one of the all-time great basketball tricks when he threw an inbounds pass off the bag of areas Thornwell sealed a win against the clippers with a dunk love. And this happened people in saying that the rest of this the call, but since two quick to really notice that being said, it's a great trick in a breezes to today's question. What is the best NBA trick for instance, making a monitor? Overhand fake life. Michael Jordan popularized back in the nineties. This. Always looks hilarious when it works. Also, very funny when it doesn't work shut out to land. Stevenson, you guys can pull this off and make it look cool. But I love this trick one of the few highlights Brent prices NBA career, but at least he's memorialized forever. But we want to hear from you. So let us know on Twitter. What's the best NBA trick since your best tweets? Formulator. Yeah. Get your tweets, we're gonna fun tonight. Trae and tasks are gonna go head to head in a special New Year's resolutions themed edition of crossfire. We got lease. I very solid play of two thousand nineteen and we'll make some bold predictions. Like these monitors are going to go out again definitely on the show. And I let's start with a little checking of the polls. We started the pools the segment where we ask you. The loyal starters fan to vote on some of the big NBA questions that we throw at you to do. So to find out the results at turn it over to the poll master himself TK all right tread season. Officially started in December. But things really heat up in February seven deadline guys. Rumors abound. We have to fans who's the biggest name to be traded thirty percent of the boat. Oh think it's going to be Bradley Beal, he has a great. Names. So we we think about that meals a legitimate option. I do believe with the wizards. But I would go with Brandon Ingram if I had to pick the number one guy on that list could be swapped for each other. That's only fair Brandon Ingram what he doesn't have going for him in LA is that he's twenty one years old. I think that's the worst thing that LeBron probably doesn't see him as his number two quite yet. Lebron just turned thirty four. Maybe he doesn't see as branding or miss the guy who can get him there right now the him and be authentic or the only two legitimate options on that list. Everybody's dreaming of an Anthony Davis strait on that's not happening in the next five weeks that team is trying to get good around. Anthony Davis later, maybe later, but that guy's signed for so long firm in New Orleans. It's not. But what if the pelicans slide he continues, and I still don't think you're one of the best in the world for well. You get tons back in return for him right now. What's the rush? If you're the pelicans, roaming, I thought there were still in a playoff race yet. And if you did slide a bit because it's so crazy, but they're going to throw that money. They're going to say here is that two hundred fifty million dollar extension. Will you sign it? Now, if he says, no it's not just about money, and I want to win and my legacy and build that then. Yeah. Then I think we start getting into the who's got the better package Celtics Lakers someone else make a play from. But until then I'm with test. I don't see him being traded definitely before the deadline here. But if you're gonna make that team that wants him, and we know that the Celtics kind of contract for him right now because of the kyri situation he's contract. If you the is, and you sort of see this situation unfolding where the pelicans are struggling why not try to get in there early and get a deal done. Now like to beat to beat the Celtics. Because because if Davis does become available at some point you want to make sure that you have the assets, and you can make that good off. And right now, the lake is do have that advantage of the Celtics that they could try to get oil. Honestly, don't think they will try to. But the thing I'm really concerned about is that the pelicans are struggling and out of the playoff writes, this is same. We thought homecourt advantage is the minimum for them this year and right now, it's just a battle in. Now. This had some injuries, but they started off well things were going. Well Davis has been fantastic through his he hasn't made any comments about wanting to leave. He has a team hasn't sat. Well, so that's the way to handle it. But if you'll the pelicans you've got to be worried that he's going to start to look around and go things are actually getting worse for us here, and he needs to move. I I hear that. But again, I think you're only going to have more teams in play in the summer. Again. This is under the hypothetical that eighty says I don't want to sign on the or maybe even does sign on you can still obviously look to trade the guy, but they're going to have so many teams, and so many packages, why wouldn't you want to drive up the market price, even more? Have a ton of picks in the covers as they always do and the Celtics can't trade until the summer. So that's how you drive up price. And maybe maybe part of it is New Orleans might be selling their team, the Bentsen's might be selling their teamed up down the line and you want picks. If you're if you're looking for a prospective buyer. You're looking for young young players and draft picks. So that's why you might go. You might wait for the Celtics at least to get in on the bidding. I'll tell you who is through my vote from that list on was Kevin love to. I think it's in play. And we know Kevin love can't be traded until January twenty fourth because of when he signed his new contract and that four year one hundred twenty million dollar deal. But you know, that's a couple of weeks there that twenty-fourth to the February seventh deadline or I think it's in play because I think you could seal on a teams talking themselves into love. And I know there's some injury problems with him. And some people may have a look at the contract and go wool. That's a lot for a guy up there in age but teams could use some offense like the Utah Jazz. Maybe the rockets they're always in play for sort of another big sort of borderline all star guy. There could be teams calling the Cavs and saying here. Either picks or young guys. We know you're not going anywhere this year. I just wanted to what are you gonna get in return for Kevin love right now that he's injured he has to play. Well, I think for the cats to get even close to some value on the bucks. So you probably could see this in the off-season maybe next year, but he's got to play. Well, and again, it's only five weeks away. It's bumped up a little bit earlier. Kevin love who knows what he's coming back. They might just say, you know, let's be bad again and hang out for a bit. All right, try. What's our next one or two and a half months into the season and MVP is still up grab. So we put together a massive list of players who have seats at one of the biggest round. Wins MVP and guys at the blow up fifty two percent voting for Janas onto to Kupo. They're probably right. I think they do you think the right right now things are going very well for the bucks and Fianna us. They just have to sort of Cape on moving keep on winning. He has to keep on playing putting up these incredible numbers boot and holes is coming there and utilize Janas the way that we all wanted Jason Kidd, but he wasn't able to and Jaanus is highlighting his skill. He has some weaknesses, of course, still the shooting is not great. But he's ability to get inside and dunk the ball time and time again, the rebounds, the blocks the he's doing everything for his team and winning so short of an injury or the bucks just full of pot. I really think this is his MVP to lose right now. I'm going to ride the hot hand in James harden tied hand, he's scoring a ridiculous number every single night out. He's averaging thirty three point three points a game right now that it's just a crazy number, and he's averaging forty over his last ten, and I think the Houston Rockets, it's easy to sort of. Remember that? They started off slow very now are three and a half back of the one-seat strata halfback. What what if they propel up to their? It's not that far off for this team. That knows how to win. I think Chris Paul when he comes back is going to help them. But he's not going to get the credit is not going to steal any votes or anything or taking the shine. From James harden? I just think he's a legitimate option. Yeah. He says the even though it would be a back toback social situation for James harden. Maybe in some voters minds. They sure got yours. You started off slow. Yeah. You've been on on a run here. But you're not going back to back sort of happen with Westbrook a little bit. Yeah. What he's doing right now. Stupid, though, this is this is this is just insatiable numbers. And he's taking over forty eight minutes of the game. That's something that doesn't do. He doesn't go out and get your ten fifteen points at the end of the game. And I think that just might be something that but Hogg wins over St. the Hudson right now, he's gonna cool off sooner or later. He is hitting everything. I mean, it's it's actually fun to watch. Because James isn't the most eye-catching play to watch because of the fans and stuff. But right now the ways carrying his team is working. But I just think he's gonna. Run out of gas. He's proved that in the last couple of years, come playoff time. He often does that might come earlier. He's playing these heavy minutes. Yeah. A lot of usage rockets winning. They needed this from him to get back into the rice. And they've got there, but how much longer can he keep it in? I forgot the one seed to one I think this is funny. I think this is why this MVP race is so wide open this far into the season. I know we just got into January, but Mark Stein. He wrote it today in his newsletter. There's not a team running away with the number one record. And we may not even have a team that even gets to sixty wins the books and the raptors are on pace just on pace to get to navy that level, but not guarantee it'd be sort of weird. We will rarely have a season where no team full season where a team doesn't win sixty games. And my point is the won't be like ten game separation where it's like, oh, they're the best team. They've got this best player. Let's give him the MVP or he deserves the MVP more than someone else. Fly. It's so wide open here. This just all these teams are good. But no one's like great. All right. Let's get find a poll here trae. All right. New year new. Eastern Conference finals participants with LeBron out west the pennant is there for the taking. So we pulled the fans and who they think will win the Eastern Conference and fix is in seven percent of people voting the raptors to win the east or this all your votes, speaking of sixty wins. Let's talk raptors. I mean, they're winning with Kawhi without Koiwa without Kyle with Kyle. They can do it all their Bill for the regular season because they're too deep at every single position. Maybe not so much built for the playoffs. But we'll see about that later. I think yeah, they can just keep it up right now. And we're seeing the best of quiet Leonard right now as we saw a career high for him yesterday with forty five points. He's getting going at the right time. He sat out the first half or half a back to back. So I should say to be this good. He's only getting better this team is only get very and. Yes Lowery's injured, but they they can manage to do it. Are you worried about the Kyle Lowry injury? I mean, we the days go with Nick nurse was saying, oh, he's going to be back somewhat soon and that was positive and then we find out. He's got these the shots in the bag anti inflammatory shots for back issues. I mean anytime you see back issue, especially the way while replays. A hardy plays taking all the charges that concerns me because I'm looking at this too is not who wins the Eastern Conference. The number one seat on looking at who goes to the NBA finals, and the bucks beating the raptors twice shooting a bunch of three pointers which can at times gets up to the raptors in playoff series. They're scared me and maybe having the best player. I mean, it's a flip of the coin between collider or youngest. I think that's I think the bucks are right there. I'm surprised the raptors getting so much of this vote. Well, I'm not surprised because they've actually handled these missing plays pretty well. No meta who's been out there. And that just shows got a good season. They go to the bench. A nickname has got the team playing really well, the bucks haven't won a playoff series and that to me cans against okay, wrapped as we run into problems with LeBron. But everyone else they've handled pretty well. So I think the raptors right now still out the vest and should be Eastern Conference favorites. But if the bucks keep it up, it should be a great series by one of the. We'll take a break. It's probably time daybreak. Try and figure that out what a start their TV's don't want to get back to work when we come back trained task go head to head in a special New Year's resolutions edition crossfire.

January twenty eighth at nine on TNT. This starters is presented by Jack Daniels old number seven and Tennessee. Honey. Here's all this works. The champ and the challenger go head to head for three rounds of questions at the end of it all all declare a winner. The crossfire belt is on the line guys round one the calendar has flipped to two thousand nineteen and as we all know, a New Year's resolution can be a powerful way to make a positive change in your life. So let's help some squads out here guys. I want a New Year's resolution for a specific team. Here we go this journal, both New Year's revolution to be to get their J E skates on and start running who knows ever since the road Dogg. Jim Boylan took over they have been boring. They want as many games with Jim Boylan. It's Fred Hoiberg. So it's sorta working, but they play tho flow their price prioritizing veterans over their youth. And it's just not fun to watch it. You're not going to be good. At least be entertaining. The bulls are neither right now on Santa twenty nine thousand nine let's hit the gas get out on the streets. Like, jeez, I'm going to stick with the bottom of the Eastern Conference, the Washington Wizards should be back. Just be bad. This is John wall injury is an absolute gift. They should go down and get a draft pick a good one. Because this is maybe their only chance to be bad because there's so much going on that roster with wall and Beal importer who signed for a very long time. This is an opportunity Josh tank it like Jay skeets dot sometimes tank it. Oh, I don't know what that means. But it's a similar question. But I want to narrow your advice down to an individual. All right. What's a specific New Year's resolution? You would suggest for one particular player here. We keep it simple. Klay Thompson meets to learn how to shoot again, this is one of the best shooters of all time playing with some of the best players ever get him open shots and look at that percentage. Gross. The first time he's been sub forty in his career one of the best ever. I don't know. What's going on with Klay Thompson, those numbers could mean? Personally, I think Rudy Gobert needs to start meditating because he seems a little bit stressed out to me you guys obviously remember when he was kicked out of the game three minutes into the first quarter for smacking a water bottle get a decade. He's just been a little bit angry. I feel all your and he's been complaining to the rest, which is a vicious cycle. You get a bad Paul Paul you complain to the rest, then they're walking. You you get another bad foul. Call next thing. You know, you're defenses and doing well Rudy Gobert Hilo. Do you some yoga great answers guys final round here around fleet? Where we now we pin. It the focus to yourself. Okay. That's what's happening here. It's a simple question. But tough they answer even more difficult to follow. What's your two thousand nineteen New Year's resolution? Here we go on actually trying to be a little bit more organized with my photos this year because you guys know how it is. You take a whole bunch of pictures, you get home. You'll look at them. You're like, what's with all these pictures? I got seven thousand on my phone. So now, look at these pictures, I got these three battles, but I took instantly beliefs skeets, you're gone. You're gone. You're gone. You're out of here. Twenty nine thousand nine organization. Okay. I'm going to gain some weight. Wait, wait. I'm going to be huge. You guys you got your own thing going. This guy's got a beer. This is the skinny guy. Got it accents over there. I got called for me. I'm just a medium size guy's handsome guy. I'm going to be the man. The only fat one I'm going to be doing this show. What are you going to do to to encourage them? I'm gonna eat all these. I. That guy. I don't know. Right. Test test. Come get me. We come back. So bold two thousand nine hundred seventy predictions. I'm stepping on skills. Starters time filling the blank fun, man. TK thing. No shows for your boy last week. Don't know about you guys. But I spent most of that time driving eating junk food, but the NBA kept right ongoing guys fill in the blank, the biggest Christmas break story was. Link is the beard, the bearded one. And trae him not talking to say, I am talking. James harden? We talked about it, you know, Luda to earlier in the show we were talking to MVP. But James harden, he just sort of single Hanley brought the rockets back into the playoff picture. I mean, it felt like when we left for the break the rockets were around the bottom of the Western Conference. Now, they're up to number four and his point totals in the last ten games, fifty thirty to forty seven thirty five thirty five thirty nine forty one forty five forty one for it's crazy is doing things that we've only seen Kobe and Michael Jordan do over a ten game spin. So I go with the beer it's easy for me. It was LeBron James getting injured to start on Christmas day, this guy just does not get injured ever. And then after he said he heard a pop in his groin here. And he said a few games he's out again tonight. It'll be back soon because he's LeBron James. He misses a lot oughta games. But somehow he was the biggest story on Christmas day because he was injured and then he managed to take over all the headlines because he told on an uninterrupted show. That's coming out. There was a snippet about him saying I believe I was the goat after I won the. Thousand six title. He manages to control all the headlines, even when he's not playing and then I noticed as lease answer. Then you brought in some wine actually, he wasn't playing before this guy, but he sort of strode into Staples before the game against the clippers was like someone said LeBron you got a game tonight. And it's like now, it's cool. I'm not playing this. It will you should probably go still anyone. All right. Give me my while. With the white sweatshirt. Yeah. He's become quite the one connoisseur and his later years. So surprised that he walked in there with a little glass of Moby? You have any wine. Have any wine says X, right? I can tell. Got any under the next one? New year new NBA? Only time will tell them the black my bowl twenty nine hundred NBA prediction this plan. Here's my bowl picks. I don't even know if it's that bold. I guess it is Kevin Durant. Go into New York City. He's going. Yeah. We're looking ahead in two thousand nineteen. He's not being traded there before the deadline. I'm saying he is eventually very likely going to win a third straight championship at the warriors. And then he is going to try and sort of re-, rehabilitate, I guess his sort of career not in terms of accolades, but how people perceive him and try and bring the Knicks back to success of any sort of success. So I think he is ultimately going to go to New York piggyback four he goes and makes his decision. I think he's going to delete his Twitter account which. That's the thing. There's going to be a lot of jokes. He'll be ready for that. Yeah. The burner, blah, blah. I think he's just gonna have enough people to run. Know, I think he loves it secretly. Yeah. But he's got an Instagram account for that. He'll duly Twitter. I think Brooke Lopez's going to go in the three point shootout. Yep. He's gonna win it. But he's gonna make the finals. Okay. Because. Bold in Cromwell at I think he can win it. I mean this too many other really good shooters. You Devon book as your staff clay will be back there. But for a big man at this stage of his creator, enter it and actually do really, well, I think is gonna be incredible. He's ninth in the league right now in my mic skews me. And he's might as many as Klay Thompson shooting thirty seven Saint get the pig man in that why don't we have a big man three point shooter? A little math three point you want to catalog because but then really sent his life brook. Lopez slash mount exactly it'd be it'd be fun to have him should've said he's gonna win all. All. On. When they're doing as many shows as we knew you're bound to say something stupid. I do it almost every show guys film. It blank my domestique of twenty eight teeth. Easy. I wonder if Tesco's the same wrote raptors in six what am I talking about the playoffs versus the Cavs second round last year. They looked like that was the finally get over LeBron James and the Cavs at one of these is going in. Yeah. I would have changed the whole series. I know I know live with one again. But yeah, no raptors in six I was convinced. I talked myself into it the wraps being the better team. The Cavs looking vulnerable in the first round versus the Pacers taking seven games to beat them in the end. It didn't matter what I said raptors and seven so those better bet. I said the wizards are going to be a lot for the playoffs. This is not good. Luca Danni chick. I was skeptical. I just didn't think so good. So soon and he's playing he's the hype was just to just a young coming seem in some elitists. Now, he's going to get a lot of pressure is gonna get misled Lonzo Bulaq everyone's gonna try to jump on this guy. And he's also who is rookie of the year. Kevin knocked. So he's been good actually has turned it on. He's a good shooter. Not shown. Fill in the blank on Twitter hash day lilies. I very self play of two thousand nineteen. We asked you. What's the best NBA trick on Twitter tree? And good suggestions. For instance, the best trick is making the opponent believe that they're in the lead. Then you can beat them in the overtime by the warrior like this one from Matthews as pointing the chair every time very funny shot up heroin and j with the most requested answer pretty much everything Jason Williams did. But that elbow path is the best one. Tonight's pick 'em play. Pelicans nets. We've got tray and Lee with the nets test, and I will take the pelicans on the road. And by the way, TK you'll be paying off your December loss later Nick mall with very slow clay comes from the nuggets boomerang for monkey Marcie here. It is stocked with him finishes him. That's three that's beautiful. That's what I call a very solid play the full Monty right there. We had a couple of wedgies while we were gone. December twenty first way back.

We've got a double dose of X men today for you on collider movie talk. I upper doing our boxoffice recap. We're gonna tell you how dark, Phoenix state, and then after that we are really into a second dark Phoenix story because there are a ton of juicy behind the scenes. Details that were eager to get into figure out what exactly happened with that movie. And then speculate what the right moves for the x men film franchise might be going forward. And I am Perry number off. I'm your host, but I get to sit here at this table with two wonderful people who I love doing this show with John Rocca and Haley Faucher. You're smiling faces fill my heart with joy on this Monday. We're not the director of producers of dark Phoenix, so we are smiling for damn sure. And least it's an interesting discussion to have. I am never rooting for a movie to fail. And I did actually teeter positive on dark, Phoenix. So it's a bummer to see this franchise fizzle out quite like it did, but so it goes, and hopefully they're celebrate future for these characters on the big screen moving forward to recap. The full box office lineup right now, we have the secret life of pets, topping the charts with forty six point seven million dollars. Number two into dark Phoenix. With thirty two point eight million three was Aladdin with twenty four point seven million four was Godzilla king of the monsters with fifteen point five million dollars rocket man came in at number five with another thirteen point eight million dollars Roca. You see this lineup here. What stands out to you? Well to me, you gotta look at that rule in their right mind would ever thought the secret life of pets, too would defeat at defeat. Expediter Phoenix even after Pakalitha. She thought they'll get it right. The public will come back. They did not, but the other we'll talk about all of that. I'm sure but Aladdin is the one I wanna give shout out to that thing crossed six hundred five million worldwide. That's incredible. Everyone thought this thing was going to bomb everyone did, and look at it doing its money. So those people with a small minority complaining about these live extra makes hate to break it to you and a small camp because a lot of people coming to see these films and enjoy them. So. Doing very pleasant surprise, and they're doing well, looking at this top five that seems to be the only one that is a good shape, you bring up secret life of pets secret life of pet no doubt, like months and months ago is always gonna top dark Phoenix to me. Even if dark Phoenix did better budget. Forty six point seven million dollars is extremely low, for secret life of pets, too, especially when you consider what the first movie made it was one hundred four point three million dollars. This is less than half of that. And I have a feeling universal illumination thought this was going to be a juggernaut of a franchise for them, and it's a little bit surprising to see that happen, when they both at the Mina cinema score. And then on top of that, this one seems to be getting better reviews than the last one. So even though I missed out on it, so I can't make an opinion on the quality of the movie for myself. I'm I'm a little sad to see this one not get the love it could possibly deserve especially based on Dave's glowing review on collider dot com. But, you know, you think about it, and I believe that first secret life of pets movie still has the. Opening weekend record for original animated movies, and I don't know. I like original filmmaking. So I wanted to see this one do. Well, well, it's not. I mean now it's a sequel of an original thing. Right. I guess so. Original ties based on anything. I feel you about a God Zillah right now. Haley, I know you're a big fan. I mean, it's, it's a bummer right? Their way around it last time I was here, we were kind of talking, like, well, we'll have to see how it continues to perform overseas and h just not doing it, it has one market left in Spain, which is not going to move the needle in the way that, you know, if they're last market was China or something, I'd say, I go, it still has a chance it can do big numbers. It's just not. It's not going to happen. It's sort of bombed out, and I'm I'm sad. I'm glad that we already have a guaranteed one more in the monster verse. Because if that doesn't do if it doesn't move the needle. I don't think we're going to see anymore. Yeah, it was a little disappointed to see that as well. Because I was thinking that maybe it had a chance of holding on a little better than it did in the states, given the fact that, you know, when I was busy, sitting there, comparing it to conch skull island, and the two thousand fourteen Godzilla movie. I'm like, well, this movie doesn't have as much to lose. So that means we're gonna. A smaller percent change. That's actually the highest percent change of the franchise. Now, what is it, sixty seven point five? And that is a huge weakened to drop, especially for a movie that opened as small as that one did do does this put the other one in question. Yes, they said it's still coming but do do you now push back. Remember Potter did that they've pushed back here, installments will they push this one back work stripped, a little bit more out of fear because of the box office returns. It's are any, I believe it's shot a wow. If it's not shot. It's ending filming at the moment because they've been in production for quite a while. Yeah. So they're they're in. They got a roll it out. And maybe I don't know what you guys think if it was a marketing thing or if it's just we don't care about these kinds of monsters, the way that we care about dinosaurs. I it's it's interesting, I think people were burnt from the from the conches go, and it was kind of have even have on. It was uneven and so was the original goes, a lot of people didn't like that Godzilla one too. So I think it just got. I think it caught up finally the audience is caught up like people complain about the transformers movie eventually last one last night was where the fans would like that's enough. Yeah I'm done. I wonder how this one does because none of these have been reviewed extensively in a great way. So I don't want to take away any kind of blame for the quality, these movies the franchise, the general lack of interest in certain topics. But given the fact that we're also talking about dark Phoenix, this episode, I am wondering if we're starting to feel the effects of an overcrowded marketplace, because this summer and partee every single summer is packed. We usually have one big release every single weekend. But this summer feels I mean, almost like out of control like there's really no room to breathe, and we always talk about how important having legs are. But now there's really no opportunity to have legs. So I just wonder if some of these lower numbers that were experiencing right now is just kind of a sign of the times where we're heading in the future that if you are not the biggest of the big, if you don't make the most noise at the box office. Your chances are just diminishing. I mean, it's certainly seems to be heading that way. And then I think it comes into effect. Actor of like making smart choices knowing that is the case like then you keep your budgets down. You keep your marketing down do maybe more of a grassroots marketing campaign than the plaster the posters on every billboard in Los Angeles type thing you know. And because there's, there's room, even with the demands of a monster film, to make a lower budget version of these movies that then these numbers, especially the overseas numbers become great instead of disappointing. If you keep your budgets in the right. Yeah, there's definitely a lot of factors in play, especially when we talk about the variety of movies on today's boxoffice lists, but staring into dark, Phoenix a little here. So dark Phoenix came in well under expectations and not only did it not meet the studio expectations for the week. But it is officially the lowest opening for the x men film franchise, you're looking at the chart right here. I thought it was going to come in just behind number nine, which is the wolverine, and I think I wound up predicting something like a forty five million dollars start for this movie. Whoa. That is a big. Gaff though. It is a major major difference here. So we're going to dig into all the details about why this might happen in story number two today. But just your initial impression of a number like this, when you saw those box office numbers, come in I what was your first reaction. Whoa. I wasn't surprised at all to be honest with you, because it always felt like a lame duck film anyway. And it's like when they cancelled it TV series four episodes in how much how m- how many people are gonna come back and keep watching the series and invest the time we all knew they're not going to bring any of these people back, most people knew that this is the end of the line for it. And the twenty two percent or twenty one percent. Rotten tomatoes was the nail in the coffin to me. So I wasn't surprised by this to be honest with you, I. Yeah, it should have been hired. Sure. But I wasn't like, oh my God. I'm not shocked. But instill the, the impact of that number still like, whoa, y'all messed up. I don't like. That's what all these reports are like, what could they have done different wrong? Everybody's sort of investigating that. But there's also just as you mentioned, this feeling that like there was no energy around you, barely even like felt that there was an X men movie coming out at all. Yeah. I mean, we have a lot of details that we're going to dig into right now, including something that Jesus. Guest Allom is asking for in the live chat right now. How much do those reshoot costs for dark Phoenix? So we're not gonna get into those specifics. But we do have a ballpark movie what the studio spent on dark Phoenix, and we're gonna talk about that in story number two.

They posted a big post mortem today, detailing a whole bunch of insider information they got based on the production. So according to this article of FOX insider told the outlet, there was a misguided feeling that apocalypse was an anomaly that we just got it wrong. And at first the movie release date was November twenty eight teen for dark, Phoenix after that, we know it was pushed to February twenty nineteen then with marketing over underway, FOX pushed the release date again to June third twenty nineteen in actually, it's June. Seventh insiders, tell t HR that the move was actually to play Kate, James Cameron, and his concerns for alita battling Joel. The problem is, according to the jar piece that dark Phoenix was never designed to be a summer movie. So Roka what is your take on this little first bit of information that we're covering right now? I'm, I'm wondering how they could be so. Misguide. To not know that there were problems with this X men franchise from the beginning, there have been issues. I mean last day did not do that. Well, then you hire the guy who co wrote last stand to be in charge of the Phoenix story, again, and get make them direct the film, then you reshoot over and over again. Like all of that, just to me signaled, a demise afford this film. And then you start pushing it to placate James Cameron, which to me makes no sense, for film like alita ballet with an absolutely no buzz and no one was going to see this thing in large numbers. So if they either playing the long game to placate him because of avatar, and then they sacrificed dark Phoenix, which should have been there, a great ending installment of the franchise in exchange, and that I think there's just massive mistakes all around them lying about. Well, I'm sorry. My belief that they lied about this idea that always all captain, while we didn't want to make it close to captain mobile. It's all smoke and mirrors. They knew that in have a good product and they couldn't get it, right. And they just dropped it. And this is the result. Well deadline actually also ran a report on some of the behind the scenes stuff. On dark Phoenix at according to their report, the claims that the ending was too, similar to captain marvel just wasn't true. No, one of the FOX ledge dark, Phoenix production side, had any Intel of what kept a marvel would be like before it was released. Yeah. That, that would have been the case, but also in terms of the release dates being pushed and pushed, and pushed and that final last push to, let's say, maybe placate James Cameron at that point. What's the big deal that seemed to this movie seemed to have been such a low priority for them at that point? And also the merger was Dundee peak deal, especially if someone like James Cameron, who is such a formidable strong force in this industry, I could understand why they would want to appease him and move this thing off its date. But the concern that they had about this, never having been a summer release is fascinating to me, and it's all it almost goes back to what I was saying at the end of the box office segment. I feel like that's the game. Some of these students are going to have to play with certain franchises is you're going to have to start designing things for other times of year because yes. The whole year round calendar is overloaded, but some are, in particular is almost like dooming, your movie because there is just so so much out there. It's also a matter of kind of what we were talking about this complete lack of buzz. I do feel that by continually pushing it, redefining the film. There was no clear marketing for it, and I'm really surprised. I thought Disney once they had it where it's going to lean all in on the last one. This is your last fire sale. Get your last excellent. We pull it off the market for a while. But they didn't lean into that. So there was no hook to hang onto. And when you keep pushing your film, like that, and I think it signals to audiences just as much to everyone else, what you said that it's not a priority sonnet priority for the studio. Why should it be a priority for us? Spy blowing to me, this is the premier franchise and the fact you treated this way for the chance that these avatar films might be good. We haven't seen Cameron of theaters in years. All of a sudden, you wanna sacrifice this thing it's insulting to the X, men brand that a lot of people comic lovers. Me love and adore and revere, and go see these movies for that to be true. Like this is just a horrible son all around. So now that's why we've been more doubly excited that it's going to Disney and the MC you and we'll see what they do with it down the road and having a hard time pointing such a strong finger at anyone over at FOX, just because, you know, maybe it would have been an issue for that original release date way back when I like I forget when they were in production versus when the rumors of the merger I started to emerge. But if it hit a point where folks over at FOX, which just like, well, we're gonna lose our jobs anyway, or we have no focus and we have no leadership because that deadline report also talked about just confusing it in the marketing department, who's to blame them for kind of dropping the ball a little, especially when there's no hope or direction for this iterative X men in the future. Yeah, I it's how do you sell that product? I mean at a certain point also when something has been on the shelf for so long. That's that says something to audience, right then? How does the marketing team convinced them that all the con? Notations are not accurate when the material itself is kind of met it's very hard. So I don't just point the finger at marketing, but it's a it's a factor. I don't think that anyone really knew what to make of this film, including it seems the people who made it, which is, how do you sell that shoots? Right. Why do you waste the money on the re-shoots and a vain attempt to try to save this film? It doesn't make any sense at all. If you knew it was gonna crash. Anyway. Just drop it as it is and move on. That's the thing that I don't understand. Overall, very curious to see what they do with. Oh, speaking of the money though deadline is predicting that this one is going to. They say it will burn out with an estimated one hundred million to one hundred twenty million dollar loss after ancillaries off the combined. Production peon, a estimated cost of three hundred and fifty three hundred and fifty million dollars, plus, which includes the re-shoots. So this is a pretty significant loss rate here and. I wonder if it will change plans for new mutants again, I still stand by what I said, last time we cover new mutants, which is if Disney is going to go ahead and let those reshoot tap and you don't bother doing that unless you have some faith you're going to get a return on it. Whether it is going as far to incorporate it into the MC, you or even just try to just turn out a single standalone good movie, but we also have a question in the live chat from Stephen geo who wrote now the X men have to share the production budget and schedule with the MC. You will they be able to give them the breathing room they deserve. So with that with that kind of question, it's difficult because I don't know the behind the scenes details about how marvel studios breaks down their budget. But I mean, yes, they will have to share it to a degree, and that's part of the problem again with the overcrowding at the at the theaters now is that now it's also like Disney overcrowding, and you got to think about all the different departments, they have, and even though yeah maybe they're staffing up a little more so than they were before. But there's only so much time and money and energy. To go around. So it could be a little bit of a challenge to spread all these movies out over so many years. I don't think there's a rush, I think people want to let it die for a little while. The Spiderman thing was an anomaly, Nick and the MC you got lucky with that by getting the right Spiderman at Tom Holland do it. But people were dumb with Spiderman, and they were able to bring them back, slowly. But surely, and now he's, he's backing being a permanent place in, in the but like this is a weird situation with X men. I think you'd let it die for a little while build up, how you want to cast it whatever find your way to the X men organically than what you already creating. And then release you gotta wash the taste out something fantastic. Four there's no rush to Melissa movie like that this quickly shape this pitch for you a little because I think what Stephen might be getting or how I kind of read his question is over the past couple of years. We've gotten those many MC you movies, and we've gotten these many X men movies now that they're all together. Is it possible to still? Maintain the same numbers, you know. And I don't think that'll be the intention either. I think that I agree with what you said, which is that they're going to give it a big rest, because it for all the reasons you said, and it just, they don't need it right now, from the number one reason is they're very much thriving very successful. And I think it was the t h r report that, that had a quote from someone saying, they're, they're going to take their time with it. And when they do introduce, it, that's ten more years of MCI movies that are just by having the x men. You've got a decade more filmmaking to do, so I think that they will integrate it into the plans for the MC. You not, not say, we, we have our MCI movies. And then we are X men movie. I'm definitely with you guys on that one other point that I did want to bring up which I found very interesting in that deadline article was there was a point where they said, dark Phoenix was originally planned to be two movies and that seems to me like it could have been the better path to. Take because one of my biggest issues with this particular story is that you needed a stronger foundation with the newer characters in order to justify this big moment for Jean grey where her relationships with these people are called into question. So maybe stretching it out over the course of two movies was the better way to go. And they were saying that Kimber basically played ball with the studio in those requests. And I wonder if it would have been an opportunity to creatively fight for the better pass who have taken with the story. I mean, maybe but judging by the all this happened in anything that would have maybe been even worse, and we're left with no ending. That's a fair point. I mean, maybe we wouldn't have gotten a movie at all. I needed the space to tell the story I think definitely even just right out of the gate. There's like one seed, and then it's like, boom you're off into this adventure that you've been wanting to see forever. But you don't there's no time to get hyped about the idea of the X men in space and all this, cool stuff that this movie was supposed to present because it's move move move move move when, in the these this new batch of X, men was never the, the leader of these films, right? It was always a pot it was apocalypse. It was wolverine in days of future passed. It was executor with a fast and magneto with fast bender McEvoy, it was never this crew of actors. And so they that doesn't drag you into the movie. It doesn't drag you into seeing this thing. And if they start center of two movies that would have made sense to let us connect with these people, a little bit more playing these characters then you can understand something like dark, Phoenix, happening, and feeling as feeling it as a tragedy and they didn't have enough time to Bill. Just like they did the first iteration of X men. They fumbled his dark Phoenix story twice. What is the damn rush? Let them breathe let them have adventures, and moved to marvel just showed you the blueprint ten years to get to the Thanos story. It, it can take time. Let us enjoy it. And they never do speaking about that to wrap up the segment. I of one prediction question for you guys. How long do you think it will be until we see the dark V-neck story that makes fun? It's inevitable. I feel like it's going to feel like it should why waste this rich story just because it wasn't done properly, especially if you earn it your swim. Many characters that are taxed the door Phoenix story that you need to lay the groundwork phone, very fair point coming coming from someone who doesn't read comics his just told about some of the most popular storylines and I was popular storyline. That excites me, but I guess, in my mind at this point, it is a shame that we never got a really strong version of this talents going thoroughly agree with you. And we'll see what happens as the issue, they may start laying the seeds for it down the road. But I think you say Dr phoenixville notch to start to have a little face to achieve now and nobody wants to see a for at least twenty years, at least at least and I don't think that's the direction they won't go based on what they did with Spiderman, which is we will not tell that origin story again. No, it we're done. We're not doing it. And I think that's the, the smart move in and obviously paid off the Spiderman. It's a shame that we didn't. Get dark Phoenix. But, like there's a lot of X men stories out there that are really cool. And I think we can branch out from this. That makes like you said, everyone just go, oh, there's so much of 'em. You've got the scrolls now we can definitely play with the squirrels are so much to play with the X men universe. The you can leave the dark Phoenix storyline for awhile. All right. I look forward to seeing what they do. And I'm still waiting not so patiently for new mutants. All right. Take one quick live chat, question of gopher one from ghost world. Who's writing for dune? I just finished reading the book, very much like game of thrones with this be better as a net flicks miniseries instead of a film. There's a lot to explain funny. You should ask that question because, you know what just broke right before we sat at this desk. Here's the headline that I've got here from the Hollywood reporter dune the sisterhood TV series of go at one or media. So an announcement for dune TV series before we get the new dune movie. Is it a good idea? Is that too much too fast, well, a few years ago, someone came out and said, I'm going to have one powering? Before for God's sakes, get it writing once, and then start talking about a TV series, Jim McLean. I on mailbag a couple of weeks ago. We talked about this and him, who is a man of knowledge and was like, I have a real fear of how people are going to consume dude, because it's such a massively dense book to now, start turning it into a miniseries to accompany. What you've got in the film here. It's very, very dangerous. I think it's the highest of high wire acts to pull off because it is a dance dense book eight did not go well for the dark tower. So recent example of all, you should probably do one thing really well before building an empire around it. I have more faith in dune, because it is Denise villanovan and I can see why they wanna do that. Do I wanna see the series? Sure. Do I believe it will happen, especially based on the numbers that blade runner got TB y'all? I can't wait until the first thing piece that comes across my desk with the headline is doomed. They're really clever without one. It's not going to be me. All right, guys. That is a wrap on our show today. A huge, thank you as always brightening, our days on Monday Adam in the booth.

Talking about juju Smith Schuster's and others within the NFL community responding to just that obviously some stuff going on in the NBA the battle for seatings. I don't know if there's ever. Been a time in recent NBA history where actual seedings played such a important and pivotal role to the outlook of some playoff series going on is no question about that. That's something to get into the State Warriors the to renting defending champions played their last regular season game at the oracle last night blowing out the Los Angeles Clippers. That's neither here nor there to clippers in the playoffs. We'll see what they do things could get interested in there. We'll talk about that.

Some news percolating in the NBA community. What's going on with Kyrie Irving New York L A etcetera etcetera? So stay tuned for for that bit of noise. And plus I wanna talk a little bit about a column that was written in the new York Daily News yesterday. Sunday's paper by the great great sports columnists. Baseball columnist to be exact the one and only Bill Madden it it. Just doesn't get much better. Ladies and gentlemen, doesn't get much better than reading him since I was a kid guys. Absolutely phenomenal and wrote another exceptional column yesterday about the state of major league baseball as it pertains. Some of these contracts, particularly was anti Bogart's signing a six year one hundred and twenty million dollar deal. House going to be easier for the Yankees to re up DD gregorious in the event that it comes to that Aaron judge in the event that this comes to that. Kyko. Dow's kaikal and others that are still without contracts. Not playing for anybody, which is a shocker that's something. We'll get into as the show progresses today. But the first order of business is to get into what scheduled to take place tonight in Minneapolis, Minnesota at US Bank stadium. It will be Texas. Tech winners winners sixty one fifty one win over Michigan state in the national semifinal. Congratulations to Tom Izzo in Michigan state Spartans by the way for ball in the way that they did prior. To this point. They just ran into a team that has a defense that's capable of putting forth defensive performance the likes of which I have not seen. I'm not gonna lie to you this team. I mean, you can go back to forty minutes of hell, you could go back to the runner rebels. When they wanted to amp up on you Duke when they wanted to amp it up on you. You can go back to know Nolan Richardson's, forty minutes of hell like I said, you can go to Hoya paranoia today's when gene Smith was spearheading John Thompson's defense, and he had Patrick Ewing in the background. Reggie jackson. Michael Jackson or Reggie Williams. I'm sorry. Michael Jackson, Michael Graham, and the crew I mean, but I look at this Texas Tech defense, and I gotta tell you. It's something special. I mean caches westerners undersized. I understand that shot four sixteen from the field. Played forty minutes. Only had one turnover in the elite eight had forty turn. I'm sorry. I had four turnovers in the forty minutes. He. Played Saturday night. Couldn't really do much of anything freshman Aaron Henry famous for is all yelling at him during the NC double A tournament. You know, that's coming and going, you know, mcquaid plan just you know, it's going just twelve points in thirty seven minutes of action. They would only guys that score double figures for Michigan state only four players scored are actually five players scored for Michigan state Xavier Tillman had seven Nick ward had five, but when you look at Texas Tech, and I know they're going up against Virginia squad that some believe we're lucky. But when you look at Texas Tech, I will tell you this. I'm not counting on Jerry Kover having a game. Like he had in the national semifinals Saturday shot three or twelve from the field scored just ten points. Played thirty three minutes. I expect about a game from him. There's a guy that we were talking about projecting him as a potential top five pick role in the upcoming NBA draft. That's what we were talking about when when it came to this guy. Okay. So don't have me sit here believe that he's going to have back to back games where he's impotent offensively in virtually existent for the first thirty five minutes of the game. I don't believe it. I believe that. Jerry covert is going to show up tonight. And he is going to ball out. I think Mooney will join him. He will make some shots. I think Texas Tech again, my win not please don't take my word for it. I mean, my pool is awful now up till the Sweet Sixteen thousand top one percent tile. And then the Sweet Sixteen came and went, and I fell off the map all true. And I think you look at junior, I'm not gonna lie to us strictly emotional decision. As to why haven't picked Virginia at all. And the reason why haven't picked junior because I didn't want to see them. A matter of fact, this matchup tonight. I don't think we'll be good ratings wise. Let me be very clear about that. I don't think too many people are going to clamor to watch this game. You will miss ion Williamson. You will miss ion website. That is somebody that you absolutely positively was rooting for to play until the last possible minute. I had Carolina being Duke for the national title personally. But I'm going to tell you something I wanted Zion. Williamson playing every minute of this NC double A tournament until the NCW tournament came to an end because ladies and gentlemen, he is box office. He is box office. He's a human highlight reel true. But at eight just with his dunks. He could still the ball. He can make a regular power post. Move drop step go into the paint lay it in everything you see this guy do your magnetized by or towards this dude is that special and God. Help anybody if he learned how to use his right hand because let me tell you something he's not as ambidextrous as he could be as of yet and RJ Barrett. That advice goes to you to my God, you need to learn how to use your right hand. Don't be somebody like Clyde Drexler who only used his right in a uses less. Even though he's a hall of Famer don't be somebody like Jalen rose who was primarily a southpaw lefty, we live in a different age at different time with the advancement of analytics technology and everything in between. And you can't be a one armed bandit. And do but so much with the exception of Zion. Williamson who is two hundred eighty plus pounds. So when you to eighty here's what happens people tend to move the hell out of your way. Because they know a Mack truck is coming at them that was in college in in a pros where you going up against grown men. Some of the most of them will move out the way somebody not. And as a result. It might behoove you to add a little versatility the your arsenal and a learner use your right him. Learn go, right. Learn finish. Right. Learn finish richer right hand as opposed to go and left and finished which left all the time. But then Williams is big towns big time, and ain't nobody like that left and this torn amount but covert can bowl. And I think Texas Tech should have an edge. Let me get Virginia and Auber for second. Because it's important that I bring that up. You could save a genius lucked up sixty three sixty two wins over Auburn. But it was a couple of things to take into consideration, ladies agenda. You could say they lucked up because there was a double dribble. That was missed. It should have been called and Kaga fat on a three point shot. That was a foolish play bossa. Mayor doughty you can say all of that. Let me say a couple of things to you number one. You are up for what seventeen seconds left. You were up four with seventeen seconds left. So it's important to point that out that is number one number two. You Samir doughty how God's name. Are you going to sit up there and say, you didn't think he touched guy when when Carl guy launch this three from the left corner? You see Samir dowdy make contact why first of all you jumped into him, and you did touch a when you jumped into him. Secondly, you gave them no place to land. You have to give a shooter a landing spot. You can't low bridge him. You can't come under him like that. They're going to call that foul. That was the right? Call by the official that was the right? Call. I hated the fact that the call was made and that it decided a trip to the national championship game. I hated that. I'm sick for Bruce Pearl who did an outstanding job at Auburn this year. I'm sick with Bruce Pearl. But the reality is that Cole had to be made. That was definitely a foul. There is no question about it. There was a double dribble before that. But that was definitely a foul. And here's why. Virginia won the game as opposed to Auburn losing it laser, gentlemen will point six seconds left. Cow guy, fifteen points five of eleven shooting hit all three of his free throws for the game. He goes to the line. Those are the only three zero free throws. He took. He goes into line with less than one second left in regulation down to and ladies and gentlemen, made all three free throws. And when I say he made all three I mean, he made all three I'm not talking about clanking and bounce it in it touched nothing, but the bottom of the net all three shots. He went out there as my God rest, his wonderful. So the great Stuart Scott used to always say cool is the other side of the pillow walk up to the free throw line with less than one second left and drained all three free throws with these with ease. Ladies and gentlemen. That's winning basketball car guy deserves our respect for that. That that. That's when in basketball right there. Okay. That's winner basketball. There's no denying. That most NBA players in that situation would miss they must at least one probably some to some all three. Kagaku stepped up to the free throw line. Like, it was nobody's business like he was even a be in the bag of cheese girls. And he said let me just give me the ball and finished the job. So as a result, we've got the junior going up against Texas Tech, which has the potential to be one of the ugliest national championship games. We have ever seen laser gender. Do you understand that? There are some people that are predicting both teams score less than fifty points. Do you realize that? There are people predicting that both teams will score less than fifty apiece. You have any idea what kind of awful basketball, how far back in our K, Tom. This has the potential to take us. This has the potential to take us back to DC Smith and this four corners when there was no shot clock where you could spend all day everyday passing the ball and not shooting. This has the potential to be that I'm prayerful that it won't be. But it does have that potential. I'm not looking forward to tonight's national championship game at all. There's nothing about the NAFTA championship game tonight that thrills me. I'm hoping that Cova shows out. I'm hoping that gosh Shota. I'm hoping that both teams score over eighty. I'm hoping to see a shootout I'm hoping to see both teams running a gun. Here's the problem. These are two of the greatest defensive teams in all of college basketball. This specialty is shutting you down. This brusher tea is shutting you down. So I look at it from that perspective. And I say damn it. Oh well. That's the way it goes. And it eight say ESPN it's today. Seven to nine three seven seven six. You're listening lobster, Stephen ESPN radio. ESPN news on a baseball matter. Just for a distraction fo- for a moment gets a little NBA talk. Bill Madden's column yesterday was highlighting the lower attendance numbers with the Marlins and Derek Jeter. It wasn't simple reason for that. Derek jeeter ain't a mall in Derek Judas. A yankee. South beach, and that Miami area don't give a damn about dairy Geeta all aka about was that he was right down the road and Tampa. So they would get some money from him. Although it wasn't in state income tax because they don't have that in Florida. They'll give a damn about Derek Jeter. We would New York Yankee fans Daja New York Yankee fans, we would. Miami don't care. There's a lot of distractions in south beach. Oh, you ain't got to go down to watch the Marlins. The other thing that Bill Madden pointed to that. I found incredibly intriguing I must confess he was talking about. Bogart's? For the Red Sox, and how you agreed to sixty one hundred twenty million dollar deal. He was speaking about the money. He didn't mention this. But I'm just bringing up some contracts that ain't Bryce Harper Machado or or or Mike trout. I'm bringing up other guys. And you notice that everybody's clamoring for the money right now and people don't wanna go towards free agency. And you wondering why that is. It's because owners in major league baseball. Hey, spend the money the way that they used to. When you look at a guy like Darris, Dallas Kyko. This guy win the Cy Young three years ago. He's without a job. Ladies there's nobody assigned him. Nobody is selling them. You look at it from that perspective of all of us that minute twenty million a year six years one hundred twenty million dollars to stay in Boston. Which is where I wanna be anyway, take that deal. Now. Take that deal right now Hicks with tenure seventy million dollars from the Yankees take that deal right now. Take it right now along with a host of others because this ain't baseball that it used to be where you got strong players union. And free agency is what it's all about and nothing should ever compromise that according to the to the great Marvin Miller. Well, that is changed. And if you're a New York Yankee fan, this is cost for good news. Because suddenly keeping Aaron judge. Should it isn't expected to be that hall? A DD Grigory is when he comes back ain't going to be in a position to command. But so much what bogus getting played? Well, as get what he's getting paid. So this is a good thing. The thing. That's fascinating. And you'll say Stephen, why are you so fascinated by the story? Oh my God. What's the big deal? Here's the big deal. Long long long long long long time ago, stretching in a modern history. Baseball was always considered to be the privileged sport. Apple pie, white picket fences, you know, America's national pastime associated more than any other sport will white privilege is over there was it was a sport. And then you had a strong players union. We're players that new out of standing their ground that looked at the money that owners will make it and they were like now you're gonna take care of us a free agency, you going to take care of us when we become those perspective free ages, and you'll be all these arbitration cases, compromising us and our marketability. Now, we have in that. Times have changed. Coordinator Bill matters column carrying about extra Tom off. And chefs in the kitchen and Sada clubhouses was a priority over dollars and cents. And I was coming back to bite the players in a you know, what? In order to take advantage. I never thought the day will come when I say this. But if you really really think about it. Even though nothing's perfect. And there are things that you wish that the NBA players will have done differently. And of course, the NFL players would have done differently. A legitimate argument could be made that the NBA. What eighty percent black population? And African American president and African American woman as -secutive director, Michelle Roberts. You can make a legitimate argument today. Unlike at any other time in the history of sports. That NBA players actually have the better unions. That was never the case before. Hello, one time hockey was considered better. At one time bay football was considered better. Even when people were complaining about the late. Great, gene Upshaw. The reality is that right now. The NBA union. And how players are taken care of. Seems to be even better than football or baseball. Who would have thought it? Who would it dunk it? Eight say ESPN is editor eight seven to nine three seven seven six. You're listening lobster, Stephen Smith show, ESPN radio ESPN news. I'll get into some NBA stuff. Because I'm here some stuff by kyri in regards to the Knicks and the Lakers that I want to share with you here in the same things about Kevin Durant. You want to stay tuned to what I have to say about that. So stick around touch that. Dial. But before I get into anything I want to get into this one last story about Zion. Williamson and I don't have the score. We in front of me. So I'm just gonna paraphrase for you. And this particular moment in time. Folks are looking into. What went down with Ziya Williamson? Because apparently his mother was a consultant for Nike or she was paid by Nike. This lawyer. And I'll have all the details for you. It was the lawyer that was representing the porn star that allegedly had dalliances with our commander in chief the same lawyer. Is in trouble. Do the allegations that he had some tried to embezzle money from Nike. But I'll have all the details for that to refresh my memory about that once we come back from commercial. Here's the reality of this story what I wanna get into about Zion. There's an uproar because apparently planned at a providence to like, do can, you know, you can make the argument that, you know, Zion, obviously like most marquee players on the collegiate level again taken care of. So ultimately automatically that breeds the conversation of student athletes being paid. And what's the big deal? First of all the rules are broken rules are broken. You never know how that can affect the program. Even I don't see anything like that happening sneaker companies funneling money two programs through a program stuff like that. This is not new to anybody. But I will tell you this. I am sick and tired. I am absolutely positively sick and freaking tired. Of this notion. That equality is is the ROY today is the ruling today that all student athletes should be paid. That is not true. That is not true. Do I think that student athletes should be compensated? Yes. But I keep telling y'all as I've always told you to my career. I am a proud capitalist. That's why I love living in American is the greatest country in the world. I try to be a Russia. I try to Switzerland. I'm not trying to live in a socialist communist a fascist. Nope. I'm a capitalist and damn proud of it. And I am of the belief that if you are billion Williamson, and you are at Duke you deserve to be paid more than the do from North Dakota. Now, if y'all really really think about it if you really really think about who you are. And what you are about as you go into that work. Whereas you get up and you pull yourself out of bed every morning, and you go to work on a mission to succeed. And it'd be great at what you do with the ultimate goal of being compensated fairly for it. Think about this. There are those who deserve more. And there are those who should be happy with what they get. Zeile we've in and the Duke basketball program. Do you really really think that the students that North Dakota deserve to be paid to say or Boise for basketball? If you play in Alabama football, do you really really think that the football team at Saint John's or swimming? They have one deserve to get paid the same amount of money. There are those who should receive a stipend there are those who should be paid more. And then there are those who should be happy with the damn scholarship. They have that's the real world. Let's stop acting like we don't know it. Please. At eight say ESPN innovates, seven two not three seven seven six you. Listen lob to Steven A ESPN radio.

Number to call up as always is triple eight say ESPN, it's eight seven to nine three seven seven six. You listening live to the Stephen Smith show ESPN radio. ESPN news waiting for my calls to show up on the screen before. I do that. They are not up there not up on the screen. But before I do any of that. Let me go back to this case involving lawyer, Michael AVI, Nadi, y'all recall, he is the lawyer. That's no for representing stormy Daniels. The porn star who allegedly was involved with. Donald Trump before he was president of the United States of an ATI gained widespread notoriety in the past year for representing her and lawsuits against the president. And his former lawyer Michael Cohen. That's where he gained a lot of his notoriety from he was charged in New York last month for trying to extort millions of dollars from Nike by threatening to take his allegations public. Here's what I think that the part about Michael avocados. It's kind of funny because you don't realize that he's facing extortion charges, and he upped the ante and his few with Nike over the weekend dumping forty one pages of documents, which he claims evidence showing the retailer bribed plays to attend Nike colleges. So you have evidence. So basically, I mean, it it seems more plausible censure throwing them out there and public now that you know, you're facing extortion charges. It seems more obvious that that's exactly what you were trying to do against Nike. I mean it serves to incriminate him frozen. If y'all understand what I'm saying. If you're dumping the pages for public consumption to show that you had evidence about Nike doling out dollars in bribes to folks and lion to the government about it for years as Michael Nadi said if that's what you're saying now publicly. Then what's the chances? Are you said it to them privately and wanted to get some money for them out of it, which would be extortion. Does exactly what extortion to be last. How much yet if there's a different definition for it? Please feel free to educate me you lawsuits all lawyers out there. That's my definition of extortion. Somebody has committed a crime rather than reporting into the thirties, which you decide to do is reach out to them yourself and threaten to take the information either public or to proper law enforcement officials unless they pay you off last time, I checked that's the of extortion. So I'm gonna loss as to how revealing such a thing. He perceives us something that would help him, but he also made allegations against Duke University Zion Williamson, and according to reports basically saying. That a family member the end paid. I'm very of all of a naughty Therese specific made allegations claim his Iowa, it was his mother Sharon Samson received payments from Nike during her son's recruitment. When he was attending high school in South Carolina Williams in place for the Duke, blue, devils, dukes direct of athletics. Kevin white said in a statement that the university is looking into the allegations regarding Williamson and his mother, quote, we are aware of the allegation, and as we would with any compliance matter are looking into it is fully committed to compliance with all NCWA rules and regulations every student athlete at do review to ensure their eligibility with regard to men's basketball, all recruits and their families. Are thoroughly vetted by Duke in collaboration with the AA to the eligibilities centers amateurism certificates process. That's what they said. Here's what Nike said Nike will not respond to the allegations of an individual facing federal charges. Fraud, and extortion and aid and his disgraceful attempts to distract from the athletes on the court at the height of the tournament Nike will continue its cooperation with the government's investigation into grassroots basketball and the related extortion case. Ladies and gentlemen. Worst kept secret in a world. Is that athletes are taken care of on a collegiate level elite athletes why because everybody knows that the NC double A B and the flagrant hypocrites that they are doing very very little to nothing to take care of marquee revenue generating athletes keeping so much of the money for themselves. Everyone knows that you find a way to take these guys. How do you know? I don't know what rules if any specifically were broken or whatever. But this is not a secret. So let's just get our head out of the sand. It just deal with that for what it is. Please. At eight say ESPN that is the number to call up. Let's go to JC alive or Stephen. He was Jason. I'm I'm just calling you day to you know, number one. You hope you've ever a day and night. I really enjoy your comment about you know, how Kyle guy made those free throws. And I'll I'll agree with you an elaborate because what I'm saying here is I have I'm practically blind. I can't see. And so, you know, I listened on the radio to that clip. And I think I listened to it when it was live and. You know, it was just one of those things where when you can't see you hear the crowd. You hear them roaring? And you hear the swish every time he made it. And it's like, I know it's got to be a lot of pressure. He's under to do that. Because obviously the opposing crowd is gonna they're going to do what they can to get him off his game. And he didn't let that happen. So and even the time out after the second free throw ice cold he still ice cold in there. And so, you know, it's it's one of those things that I can't imagine, you know, going going through something like that to make it to a title game. And at worst, you know, best if you miss one, you're going overtime pretty much so on say. Say thanks for thanks for making the comments. So audible and so understand -able by hearing. And that's actually something all of you guys that the ESPN radio from commentators stole that other stuff. That's something. You're all doing really well. And I I encourage you to keep it up. Thank you so much. I appreciate the call. Thank you. Very con- words in your part preciado. Leo, you'll obvious even they talked to me. Hello am. I on. Yes. You are on a lively. Oh, go ahead. I just wanted to ask you what you think about the one and done rule with the NC double A. I think it it's what I want to. Yes. I do. I don't like it. I don't like it. Here's what I believe. I believe a player and see. Here's the problem with your question. Leo, you're asking me about just the NC double A when I'm thinking of all is both the NCWA in the NBA. I believe that any athletes should be allowed to come directly out of high school to the pros. But I also believe that if you come to college you should have to commit to us. Either commit two years or don't come at all in football. They got to commit three. You can't go to the NFL after after after a year or two in college. If I remember correctly, you gotta you gotta serve at least two years three years. You can't play one year and then be eligible for the NFL draft. Can't do it. Samantha game. And I understand that. But what I'm saying to you is it's college basketball and as big time money big time programs. I don't believe don't come at all or come commit two years. That's my belief. Well, personally, I think that without the one that does rules. I in Williamson probably would have been destroyed the NBA. I think that he needed that year that gives his skills better cause you to get a skills better. And he needed that years to be the number one overall pick. But I still believe he would've been he definitely definitely would have been a top ten pick. And I don't believe you would have gotten destroyed. You know, why? Because I think that he has skills comparable to some cats on the NBA, and you know, what they don't have that. He has Leo what two hundred and eighty pounds. With a forty five inch vertical. Leap somebody like, John Moran, and others might have needed that Tom because it is slight frame two hundred and eighty plus pounds with a forty five inch vertical. Leap and you can play. You don't need that. You'll be fine. But I think personally that without that one and done rule. I think I would have been a big performance at the same was back. Then I'm telling you you wrong. That's the most ignorant how Leo now. How do you before I jump while you how old are you? Because you sound young ignorant. How old are you? I'm nineteen. Oh, that's offer. Give you don't worry about your young whippersnapper. You don't know anybody. First of all what the hell are you doing bringing up saying buoy and that happened before you even born? Yeah. Well, I'm gonna say. Leo, leo. Sam buoy being a bus. Sam buoy was drafted in eighty four number two overall bright before Michael Jordan, and you're nineteen. He this happened fifteen years we'll for your birth. And you're speaking intelligently about the stop, Leo. Your dad told you that did your dad or your grandpa, somebody told you that didn't they did they tell you that tell the truth? I was my father. This is Leo you consider yourself, a member of family, brother. You could call back anytime. I'm just saying you're young you're young. And you know, what I forgive you. Because you listen to your dead, and you should listen to your daddy. You should listen to your daddy. So I don't mind that at all. That's okay, Leo. But I'm just telling you no way on earth Zion. We have said would have been a big a bus saying buoy. You can't get that bad. I gotta run appreciate the call eight say ESPN inundates of it's not three seven. This.

And now last thing before I go, listen, I've been doing over one hundred episodes of this show. And I realized I don't have a hundred five star reviews. Now, we've had tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of downloads. And I'm like, oh my goodness. Either. My content is not good enough. And I know it is or just not asking you to make review. So can you put this on pause go over to apple to the I tunes area and give me a review and get me over? Hundred to two hundred and fifty because I was told nobody takes you seriously until we get to two hundred and fifty review so please head over and do that that would be a game changer for me. Now, let's dive into the Content's going to be absolutely amazing. But I warning a warning to orange actually to warning stories. We gotta pick on the lawn musk. All right. He's working one hundred and twenty hours a week. He might be getting five hours of sleep per night. He probably forgets things all the time. He's probably he's probably putting like hair gel on his toothbrush, and he is using like egg beater to shave his face. And it's just like, you know, like all the comedy because he's so tired, and that's why he's saying crazy things. And my goodness. Would you want that guy building your rockets? I don't know. So you don't wanna be like, Elon Musk. Okay. I'm going to give you a little bit more warning about that in a moment. But I also don't want you to be like, my client, Joel Marianne. So Joel Marion's coaching glenmont since two thousand nine and when he was building his hundred million dollars supplement company that you heard about I think we did podcast, and it was in the nineties where it had Joel come on and talk about the five deadly sins of mediocrity and how overcome them well Joel admits like he was living a bad lifestyle back then. Yeah, sure, he built a hundred million dollar business. But he sacrificed so much. I mean, this guy would stay up for three days in a row. And I don't know he stayed up for three days in rows like Hackworth on three to five times per year. And there's no way that is not gonna come back to haunt him. So I don't want you to live that lifestyle either. Okay. He he probably could have delegated a lot of stuff. They still would've made, you know, eighty million dollars instead of one hundred million dollars. And he, you know, he's probably gonna say I wish I had that had give that money for you know, my health right now, he's doing well. But I don't want you get into that. You know, he's gonna work they'll four o'clock in the morning sort of thing back in the day. Like you did all the time today he has a regular schedule. Just like the billionaires that you're gonna learn about Nasek. And I remember funny story that I think I told this one in the past podcast, but I would stay at jewels. Mansion in Florida, I get up at four o'clock in the morning, and I'd go into the work area. He is his giant office and he'd see me come in. And now as his q. Go to bed of four o'clock in the morning. And then I'd see him at about nine or ten sometimes earlier because he has take his kids school. So I don't want you to have that lifestyle. And it's not right because he would cry. She wasn't doing any of the things that you're gonna learn about today. And so maybe you could have built one hundred twenty million dollar business if he had a different schedule. Now, of course, he's a machine your machine I'm machine, but we all need to treat our machines properly. So let's take a look at some billionaires and the time that they sleep every night. So Tim cook CEO Oppal is kind of like me he gets seven hours of sleep. He goes to bed at nine thirty and gets up at four thirty. Although I heard that he gets up earlier on Mondays or a stays up later on Sunday night and does crazy early meetings. So, you know, take that for what it's worth Bill Gates co-founder of Microsoft, currently is doing midnight. He goes bed at midnight gets up at seven AM, which is probably about as traditional as you can get Richard Branson does not. Sleep very much. He loves getting up with the sunlight, and he goes to bed at midnight. So he's a twelve to five or twelve six kinda guy. And then Jack Dorsey out in San Francisco. He's pretty boring. He goes to bed at ten thirty and gets up at five thirty. So he cofounded Twitter if you didn't know that so, but we'll just talk a little bit about sleep. And so there's this guy this Dr Walker guy, I forget his first name. It's not Christopher Walken might be Christopher Walker though. And he's he's been written up in magazines all over the place, and he was on business insider talking about he's a he's a literal doctor of PHD or medical doctor about sleep, and he talks about how a single night of four to five hours of sleep can lower your body's natural killer t cell count, which is your Munich system by seventy percent. So when you sleep four to five hours, let's say you go to conference, right. You go to conference. You're you got germs all over your hands. You're drinking. You're staying up late. You're in a room with five hundred people you come home. Eight hundred ten times you're sick. Right. And it's probably one of the factors is that you're not getting enough sleep. So missing sleepy says put your body on a crash course for chronic disease. So what diseases Elon Musk gonna get is going gonna Alzheimer's obesity, stroke, diabetes. Who knows those are some of the things in fact, this Dr Walker says that even if you sleep for a week of five or six hours you have signs of prediabetes. So your blood sugar's elevated, your insulin is elevated, so listen get enough sleep using this stuff. I've talked about the past. But this show isn't about sleep. This is actually about nighttime success routines. And we all know we have our morning success routines. We get up. We do work we do meditation. We we do we've done our to do list before. But we go in dominate so by implementing the right habits in the first hours of the start of the day you succeed, but also by implementing the right habits in the last few hours. You'll supercharge your sleep. And you'll you'll get up dominate. So so let's go and take a look we're going to actually talk about the eleven factors. Okay. There are eleven really awesome habits that empire builders are using in order to be more successful. But also have less stress and sleep better. So the first one is from Ed my let at my let is one of the fifty richest people in America under fifty I believe very successful guy. He was on the podcast. You can go back. And listen that episode. I don't remember what episode was maybe I'll go and check. But at my let what he does is. He does gratitude at and he does gratitude at night one of the two things I'm going to share with you that he does at night. And actually this episode fifty seven so episode fifty seven of the podcast is with Ed. My let make sure you check that out. Now Ed does gratitude at night. Whereas my friend bedrose has gratitude in the morning. So it doesn't really matter. But if. You find yourself not being able to fall asleep. Maybe you're negative mindset. If you pick that up from Ed my let gives shadow to Ed tell him as mentioned, I'm here in the podcast. If you pick that up and you add gratitude, maybe you're gonna fall asleep better. I mean, but at the end of the day, I mean, I've often had clients say, I don't know what to be grateful for. And I'm like, what do you mean? I mean so far today I've been grateful for the protein cookie had grateful for the for the amazing green smoothie I made. I'm very grateful for the dog walk. I had with daisy the dog we went on a huge forty minute walk. It was her biggest walk ever grateful for that grateful for the dead lifts that. I did. I'm grateful for the t shirt the man up t shirt, I'm wearing grateful the Instagram video made a great over getting this podcast. I mean, I'm just so grateful for all the little things in life. That's why don't have fancy cars, and I do have fancy -partment, but I don't have fancy cars, and I do love to travel because oh man just so grateful, and I'm actually relatively negative skeptical person. But I am very grateful for all the little things in life that bring me joy may just easy to please. I'm also grateful for the books. I read them talk about talk to you about what I'm reading the. The end of this podcast. So gratitude is one habit to add to your nighttime routine. Second habit of Ed, my let is also shared by my client. Sharon, robots social, Ron is one of my twenty five K clients. He spent entire day with me, and you know, give shout out to Sharon here. Telhami mentioned him. He's been interviewed twice on on the podcast. And so listen with Wisha Ron he realized during our day together. And we were doing our day together at the montage hotel, beautiful beautiful hotel, and we were doing our day together there and Sharad and I. Go and deep dive all day long. And he goes man, Craig, I just realized as we go through this that I've gotten away from doing visualization at night, and it was like man 'cause I was saying how can we make your days better? What has worked for you in the past goes, well I used to do visualization. My days were amazing. I don't do that anymore. And so now he does visualization at night before he goes to sleep and it's a very short visualization. Then he talks about it in in the podcast episode forty four that that Sharon, and I did here on early to rise radio the tenets immigrant edge formula that he and I did down Joe polishes event recently. And so that's really great. He does visualization Ed does visualization because both Ed, and I and a few other people believe in a secret factor that allows your brain to do work overnight. I'm gonna share that in a moment after I talked about a few other people here, but it number two visualization haven't number three is goal setting. And so. My man grant Cardona I was just down at a grand card known sales bootcamp. And this guy's sixty two years old. He has the energy of somebody half of half his age. He talked for four hours straight. I didn't see him take a sip water. He then took a lunch and did QNA at lunch, and then came back and spoke for another three to four hours on believable. Sixty two years old didn't have his kids until fifty one his first can at fifty one got married a forty five. Man. He's in great energy, great shape. He is just an awesome awesome role model to me. I know you might not like me you say, oh, he's got bro attitude, and I don't like how GRIs of us. And you know what? That's okay, you don't have to like him. You just have to learn from him. Okay. We don't have to like Trump, and we don't have like Obama. We don't have to like, you know. Pit bull. I don't know. Why said pit bull. You know? We don't have to like everybody in the world. But we do have to learn from them. We have to learn we're gonna learn from Mr. worldwide pit bull. We got learned from grand card. We gotta learn from Obama. We gotta learn from President Trump we have to learn from Hillary Clinton, we have to learn from Arianna Huffington. We have to learn from Sara Blakely we have to learn from her husband Jesse. It's ler call Sara Blakely the world's greatest entrepreneur. So we have to learn from everybody we help to like him though. We don't have to like anybody learn so anyways grand car down one of the things he does every single night is he looks at his goals. His massive massive goals. Now, you might say, gee, should you really be looking at your massive goals right before bed? You might get to excited. I understand that. Maybe should look at them an hour before bed. But when you look at them, it kicks into place this one secret, then tell you about a moment that I have used that Dan Kennedy has used that even Polian hill the author of. Can grow rich has used. Okay. So look at your goals. Look at your goals at my let he does that as well. Okay. So Ed, my light does that next thing. We need to write down the list. Apparently, according to Tyler Pez of your three biggest items for the next day, three big items. Okay. So that's what tight Lopez does. Because that allows him to dominate his mornings better. You've heard me talk about this. You've heard me talk about doing the priority to do list every night. And Wendy do your priorities to list, you do that after your brain dump. So so far our habits are give gratitude visualize look at our goals right down our three big items and then do a brain dump. And so my coaching client Jason capital has a long been using the brain dump and I talked about the brain dump and both my books, but I really go deep about it in the be unstoppable book dotcom book and the brain dump is where you take all the thoughts running through your head. And you write them down on paper. You basically get you empty your mind, you empty your mind when you empty your mind, you can go to sleep better. So you should do this about more than our before bed. Again. It's like looking at your goals and get to excited you don't wanna do that right before bed? You wanna maybe that an hour before bed, and then then you do the three big items. Okay. So if you go all right, listen, I've got twenty things to do to tomorrow. But these are the three and you take Tyler Pez advice, and you do the three big items. My goodness. You're good to go. Because when you do the the brain dump allowing the priority to do list. You you close any open loops now, my editor Austin Gillis is very smart young, man. He wrote about this on our website. And he says your brain is very similar to computer, and like a computer it has a million open tabs and programs worrying in buzzing in the background. If you're like that it won't matter. How hard you try to hit sleep. It doesn't matter. If you take melatonin doesn't matter if you throw them, I'm ask on. If you got a million thoughts racing racing racing in your anxiety engine reading in your wheel spinning you're not going to be able to fall asleep. You gotta go close those loops you can start to close those loops with the brain dump. Okay. So get that stuff out of your head. Get it down on paper, empty your mind. Get your to do list in place. Now, you okay, let's get all that stuff solved in the morning. And then the cool thing is that your sub conscious kicks in your subconscious kicks in and when your subconscious kicks in does the work overnight. So let's go back through so far. We have gratitude is one thing you have to do or you can do. So these are habits of successful people. You choose member. This is like choose your own adventure. You get to customize and tailor your thing. So you can do your gratitude you can do your visualization. You can look at your big goals. You can do your brain dump. I should've mentioned that before the three the the next thing the fifth thing is doing the three big items with Tyler Pez. Then you you make sure that you close any loops, and then you move on to getting your subconscious to work overnight. So you're telling your subconscious very much, again, your brain is computer, and it can run in the background while you sleep. So there's a very famous story that I don't. If it's true. But I was told by Dan, candy, and it goes like this. Dan, candy said that Napoleon hill when he was writing his book thinking rich he had a deadline to pick a title for book. And I will tell you coming up with title for a book is very very important. My friend Badri cooling nailed it with man up. I nailed it with the perfect day formula. And I took two years to figure out the name of unstoppable. I really didn't know what's called. I I was gonna call it. How to overcome the blackbox having Zayed's and Ryan holidays do that sucks. So I'm like, oh, man. So I struggled struggled struggled. And I changed the book actually a lot. And then some reading relentless by Tim Grover, and I looked at that cover so many times and it says from good to great to unstoppable. And so I'm like, you know, what that word Unstoppables, and Tim subtitle. It's not in his it's not his title of his book. So I'm gonna call my book unstoppable. Because I'm gonna teach you how to overcome anxiety, overcome entrepreneurs, anxiety and become unstoppable. That's where I got the idea for the name. It wasn't something that I said forever. It's not my model. But it's since become my motto. And I like it. All right. So that's how I came up with unstoppable. Now back to Napoleon hill. So Napoleon hill he had like five hours to come up with a name for his book. And eventually he settled on thinking grow rich, but up until five hours before that deadline. You know, what the title of his book was called? It's it's really bad. It's really bad guests come out throw, it, some ideas. I can't hear I can't hear you. Okay. So anyways, it was called according to Dan Kennedy legend, and Dan, Kennedy's a marketing mentor of mine. Napoleon Hill's thinking rich was originally called use your noodle to get the Budel. I can almost I can barely say it without laughing use your noodle to get the Bootle. And so Napoleon hill stresses out he goes, you know, I'm just going out. I don't know why. He's thought he was going to have a nap. If this is even true. I don't know. But anyways, he goes in has an app any wakes up with think and grow rich, which is a huge lesson. Right. Like don't be cutesy with the title of your gym or your book or your business. Don't be cutesy just be straight to the point think and grow rich. Great. So that's that was his subconscious mind doing the work while he slept and Kennedy says write down what you number one thing you want your brain to work on. And I've done this so many times of brain dumps, and I planned out my writing. So the next morning I wake up in fifteen hundred words three thousand words, poor outta me. Just pour out of me like as fast as I can type the words come out of me. And the next thing, you know, I've written two thousand words. An hour who writes two thousand words in our and the quality words, they're practically finishing an essay for early to rise or a book chapter for my next project. It's so simple when when you do it, right. So Jason capital believes in it and Jason capital uses. My brain them tie. Lopez is clearly using it at my let believes in the subconscious mind, Dan Kennedy. So listen, it is powerful. You just write something down and put it on a sticky note put right beside the bed, and then, you know, use your nighttime routine to fall asleep, and your brain will solve that problem and you'll wake up, and you will dominate. So here's another thing that I do that helps me drift off to sleep. So I've done the brain dump. I'm going to do another activity in a second before I go to sleep while Sherry through that because I do on talk about my three to one formula for going to sleep. But what I do. I lied there. I walked through my next day. So I guess I'm visualizing, but I'm walking through like minute by minute. And this is so boring that usually fall asleep within three to five minutes of trying to do this. So I'll be like Cameron wake up three fifty seven. And then I'm gonna walk across the room. Turn the phones off because I have to alarms and then and then I'm gonna go pee and them in a Chuck some water. So I can go pee again in like ten minutes and then on a walk downstairs this. This is obviously me either drunk or tired. I don't walk downstairs, and then when I get downstairs Manam feel so guilty because my dogs in a cage. Go let my dog out of the cage. But I I'm gonna drink more water. So I gotta go pee. And then so now. Like, this is obviously putting you to sleep. It's putting me to sleep. And the next thing. You know, I wake up and time for me to go pee. And then drinks more water. So I can go pee again though at my dog side. So she can go pee. So I want I do this walk through while I'm lying in bed. And that's one of the things allows me fall asleep so fast. In addition to have it number nine, which is using the ten three to one zero formula for better sleep. So I've talked a lot about this. Obviously my perfect formula book on early to rise. It's been featured in Russia on television in Australia on television. It was recently featured on life hacker Austrailia, even though it's been on life. Hacker dot com. The regular one on Inc dot com. All over the place on in the telegraph dot co dot UK because people hate it. And they like they get so angry when they read this formula, but it works because I tell people things they don't want to do. And they think like, oh, this is really boring. I'm like, well, the whole point is to fall asleep. So you can get up and dominate your day. This is not like the formula you use on your water daughter's wedding. Night when you want to celebrate. You don't follow this? Okay. This is this is for school nights. So the formula is simple ten hours before bed. Stop drinking caffeine. Caffeine will keep you up. If you toss and turn the most likely culprit is caffeine because caffeine gets your mind going your mind is racing now, and it physically and physiologically stops you from falling asleep, caffeine blocks Dennison receptors in your brain. And when you have that happen, it stimulates you so you don't want that so three hours before bed. You also have to stop drinking alcohol and a lot of people still drink wine before we go to bed helps before sleep helps you fall asleep doesn't help you have deep sleep. So you fall asleep get our sleep. And you're like, oh, man. I'm still tired. I don't I'm still tired because you had a glass of wine and our before bet two hours before bed. Stop working an hour before bed turn off all screens some of these guys like my friends Jason capital. They're using these blue blockers and stuff, okay? Cool. Listen, there's a lot of things out there that can help you another one of my clients guy. Greg O Gallagher from Keno body. He sells these things. So if you wanna use that fine you can use that. And then you can watch Netflix, and you can read kindles and all that type of stuff. But personally what I do is I go onto habit number ten here. Which is I read a chapter of fiction book or biography? Most of the time I'm reading history right now reading the decline of the Roman empire. I'm also reading the rise and fall of the Third Reich. I just because when I read history, it's very interesting. But I don't have to use it for anything. If I try to read a business book, I'd be like trying to take notes and man. Just not a big fan of reading business books because it's so much work. Right. I won't be doing work at nine o'clock at night when I'm lying in bed. But I will also read stuff like recently, I've been reading not only the surrender experiment, Michael singer. But also, the untethered soul. I've also been reading I really loved reading sapiens by you've all Harare, Noah, I don't know this name. But that was great book was great book, really interesting and always put me to sleep. So I was reading that. I've got some other books sitting around, but I've got Huckleberry Finn. But I'm not really interested in that book that back when I was a teenager. I'd be read Stephen King books. But the problem is when you Steven king book, you know, two hours go by in your sleep an hour and forty five minutes ago, so reading history just me super tired. It's like a sleeping pill for me. And I go to bed. So that's what I read right before a fall asleep and then the last habit. The last. Habit that nobody's really talked about. But it's really really important is that you must deliver yourself from temptation. Because you can do all these habits that I've mentioned. But if you are checking your Email, ten minutes before bed, if you're texting people if you are consuming caffeine, you know, at eight o'clock at night, if you're having a heavy giant meal, you know, like you go to Morton's or you go to mastro's or you go to an amazing steakhouse like there's a couple of great steakhouses in Toronto. I go to Jacobs. I go to blue bloods, I go to S T K that we got one. Now, man, I can go there in need a rib by and have a glass of wine. I actually don't like wine. It makes me stuffy. But I might have a cocktail. And then I'll have a baked potato, and I'll have all the sides because I love sides. And then the next thing, you know, like, I'm having meat sweats at four o'clock in the morning. Well, more like to clock morning, and I don't sleep. Well, and I get up the next day, and I may have been in bed for seven or eight hours, but I'm not in the best mode and my work. Cout suffers my work doesn't suffer, but my workout suffers. So you have to deliver yourself from temptation, which means cutting yourself off from alcohol caffeine, stimuli, Email, electron IX, all that stuff drama debating arguing with people. You have to put that stuff in place in everything that we talked about the gratitude the goal set individualization, the brain dump these things are all positive and allow your subconscious mind to work optimally overnight. So deliver yourself from Thame tation make sure that you room is not too hot. And do you have a comfortable bed, and you have your I'm asking your ear plugs?

Max Kellerman show the PODCAST. The cowboys since. Two thousand ten. On average. When eight and a half and lose seven and a half games there were tick above average. Steven Jones real good GM considering daddy owns the team and that's why he has the job. It's an amazing job like you understand most GM's in the NFL have a lifetime of experience but not just that they've had to grind their way up and work their way up the ladder and then they get the job. Because they're better than the people around them, that's not Steven, Jones? Daddy owns the team. So he got the job eventually not that he hadn't paid dues, but that's the reason. He has the job unlikely therefore that he'd be a tick above average hard to be an average NFL GM, a hard job. And he's better than just average by a little bit. But. That's why the cowboys are not great. Because they have. been above average GM but not an elite, GM. And that's because Jerry Jones Ego can't take the story being anyone about anyone other than himself. So his son runs the team. With him? And the coach can't be a guy who's going to get more credit than Jerry. So it can be Mike McCarthy, but it can't be Jimmy. Johnson Bill parcells. And that's why so-called America's team is a tick above average. That's it. And that's why they lost the seahawks. Let me look the specific answers. In this case are Russell Wilson's a little better than what he was better than Dak. Prescott Prescott was very good against a bad Seattle Seattle. Pass Defense and Russell Wilson was even better. Yes. The Bad Dallas past defense. Here's Pete Carroll on after the game on. Russell, Wilson's ability to bounce back in the final drive. We're so accustomed to absolutely are just anticipating that we're going to go score and and. Look there was a moment in there. We said you know feel wins it, and then we looked each other. Touchdown. and. It was really cool. See Compete again like he does. Russell Wilson's one of the greatest quarterback of all time, and he's in his absolute prime, and he's certainly one of the five best quarterbacks in the world and some would say he's the best quarterback in the world and the best football player in the world right now and they have a hell of a case. I would put him third behind Patrick Mahomes one. Aaron Rodgers to. And Russell will. But I think maybe the most provable case over the last, let's say three years or five years who's been the best quarterback over that time Russell Wilson. Some some players are like that in no one year. Would you say he definitely is the best this year but if you took a three or five year and they're the best over three or five years, which is very impressive and that's Russell Wilson and maybe this series also just the best. I'd taken third. The cowboys to me or the story though I thought once they treated for Jamal Anderson. Sorry Jamal. Adams. Who I thought even that. As it turns out. He wasn't the best player in the draft I, thought if you WANNA, make sure you take player in this draft with the highest floor, Jamal? Adams would be an excellent NFL player is. Why don't usually a safety doesn't tip the balance but look what Minkah Fitzpatrick did for the steelers last year Jamal Adams once they made that move on the seahawks I thought okay and decay mccafe's a year older. Seahawks are the best team in the conference. The Dallas Cowboys. Lost to the best team in the conference. Maybe. Certainly one of them. No big deal. Right? They made it again. They're wanting to now it's bottom line and they were lucky to get the one. Win Lucky to beat the Falcons. They can't rely on entire special teams unit. Not Jumping on an onside kick with the game on the line. Right. That's not something you can rely on consistently otherwise there are only three but I don't think there knowing three type team. I. Think they're an eight team like every year nine, hundred, seventy, eight that's the cowboys for every time they go ten, we're eleven or twelve win season they have ten or eleven or twelve win loss season you know like that since two, thousand, ten, I'm not making it up. Last year they were eighth year before nine and seven. Ten and six that averaged out to nine and seven but they're one and two this year bringing it below nine and seven and then. Going back all the way to two thousand, ten those years. Eight and a half and seven, and a half the average on the on average eight and a half games they lose seven and a half. That's them take above average. Well the year they're loaded with talent I. guess Although how much of that is they have a lot of talent but how much of that is there so heavily publicized that we are familiar with the players on the team. Meantime. Rams fans and listen I like the RAMS I was out in La when they got him when they got him back there actually the heritage team readers are still the most popular professional football team in La but the rams are the heritage team. And with the best history by the way in La and. I wish them well, I hope they do well. You didn't get robbed. Rams, fans, he didn't like. They were coming back on the bills and you don't want to see a game decided in a high leverage moment by a bad call. It wasn't the worst call ever saw but I think the rest probably blew that call right? But really what we're upset about is a an epic comeback was stalled out by a referee blowing the whistle. Right by by. Extracurricular curricular stuff and they got it wrong probably like you could maybe call that allow. But listen if Josh Allen doesn't get the pass off you don't get the pass interference call luck is the residue of design Josh Allen. scored. Five Four touchdowns and a touchdown run. Through for four rushed for one five, TD's. That's not getting robbed on a call. That's a great young quarterback, which is what he looks like so far this year. Having a great game and digging a hole that you had to that you couldn't quite get out of. Tom Brady had a big game against the broncos team. That is terrible. Big. Deal. Aaron Rodgers drew brees a pretty good Aaron Rodgers Oh my God. Maybe. They were smart and Green Bay. Good and clinched right the GM instead of drafting a receiver because this was the even without Davante Adams yesterday instead of driving receiver draft Aaron Rodgers replacement before you even know him. Light. A fire under Rogers who just went thirteen and three, and now is in year two of a system he understands better. Coach takes the handcuffs off a little bit. Let them do as Aaron Rodgers thing by the way they was thirteen and three with a playoff win against Seattle last year and they're better this year. Past. Protections. Better. Arron Rogers looks. There's no one. I'd rather have other than patrick mahomes than Aaron Rogers. Rogers looks in credible so far. He's looks back to his prime self. Eighty eight say ESPN by the way not only was whence terrible. Job Borough. Lord Studios this lookie. Was the best quarterback on the field. And How many guys would you want over jober over the next three or five years? He's going to be really really good. John New Jersey you're on the Max Kellerman show ESPN radio. Max Winston play well, yesterday I thought he played well. I'd only did play better than he did the. Weeks one and two. I wouldn't consider trading and what would do was you consider trading Zach Ertz for some offense align how even though Eagles Have Dallas Scott also who's a proven commodity? Would you consider trading? Zakar, it's for maybe Zach Morton for small fence line out the eagles have the niners, the steelers and the Ravens next week. So it's Badly. Rating wentz right now. I think once has regressed shockingly. I think he's a mess right now I think he was much more reliant upon. Than I realized. I he's one of the worst quarterbacks in football. This year is capable of doing things that are eye-popping, but he doesn't do them consistently what he does consistently make bag bad decisions. Resist the coaches offense doesn't like to run RPO's. Forces the ball tries to play hero ball poorly executes on several passes. If he happens to come up with one miracle type pass, he's really bad right now is one of the worst starters in football right now I don't think it's like, Hey, if they get if they first of all integrating an offensive line piece is no small thing sometimes takes like a year or more even if you bring in a veteran so like. To. Try to salvage the eagles season 'cause they play in a bad division right now by making a move by trading your best offensive player, I don't. It's not something I would do if are the eagles. News from Max Kellerman nation. Look at this whole nation. John. Just hit us up on the DR pepper a call in line. Right, where's John John is oh? Yes. John New. Jersey that was him right I see how this works now Them come quick on the uptake there Raj. Brian Nutley you're on the Max Kellerman, show ESPN radio. Brian. Thanks for having me. I'm a wanted to call and talk about Sam Darnold man I mean listen. The dumpster fire. There's a lot of pundits out there. I really can't call you to task too much with it. I. Don't know if that's you but everyone talks about how nice guy is and he's a kid. I thought that SAM. darnold. I thought Sam Darnold was going to be a very. Good quarterback for a long time a B. Plus right for a while. I don't think he was going to be great but I thought I was going to be good for a while and it just goes to show you. It's not just drafting identifying talent because there aren't that many can't miss talents quarterback especially, right? Very dependent upon coaching the coaching environment. and. So I didn't think darnold was immune to like a bad situation, right? A, lot of its development, it's drafting and development. darnold is with a sorry franchise and it stalled his development but I think he has the potential to be even still a good quarterback for a number of years never thought he'd be great but I still think he could be good. Christie and Pittsburgh you're on the Max Kellerman show. ESPN. Radio. Max Our you. Good Christie. How are you? Good. Thank you I. Just WanNa Talk to you about Carson Wentz I. Think you are throwing him under the bus way too soon i. mean we're GONNA pandemic. Guys are getting hurt left and right. I think you're expecting a gourmet meal when there's no ingredients to make it with you know I don't know last announced black we'll look I thought wentz was terrific in sixteen seventeen. Thousand and sixteen I thought he was the MVP. Until he got hurt I thought it was okay. The next year was great. I thought last year he was really bad in the second half of the season when he was getting all this credit for lifting his team in fact, identified was poor decision making. and. Poor execution. He had some eye-popping stuff that made people feel playing hero ball that made people think that he was really good including me like Oh my God. It reminds you what he did in two thousand sixteen followed by this. Oh my God did you see that throw followed by? Bad decision bad. Throw bad throw. It was like a three to one ratio and he was in the. Division, maybe ever in the NFC east last year, and then when you look, you know he got healthy against the cowboys but especially like the giants in Washington and then when you look at what the other quarterbacks in the division were doing against those teams, a rookie and Daniel Jones backups in Washington, right when you all the other quarterbacks division were beating the. Teams Carson Wentz was getting healthy against better than he was playing against those teams better than he was. Let's not forget late in the game in the fourth quarter on third down in high leverage moments whence would kill them with turnovers. Sometimes, they got lucky and recovered the ball, but he was killing him I thought he was bad that now many people are laskey. Who is a tremendous football analyst by the way best breaking down film or at least The best exposer of football ideas while breaking down film of anyone I've seen since Jon Gruden was doing right on ESPN. On TV. And but I think he has a saw spot for Wednesday I disagreed with him about this and I was saying last year once is not good guys. Certainly not elite. If you want to say the talent makes them top fifteen or something I'm not GonNa argue with you but top five top ten crazy. You know who saw what I saw. The Eagles Front office how he row spin instead of packaging the second round pick to move up and get CD. Lamb. Drafted Jalen hurts in the second round. They just won the division drafted quarterback. In the second round they just gave contract one, hundred, twenty, million, dollar contract Carson wentz drafted a quarterback in the second round well, because he's injury prone, they're hedging get Outta here they want depth at back quarterback stop it you can get those guys. Tolls Live foals is still floating around who won you a super bowl. No they they saw what I saw the man was regressing. And he has regressed further. If this is not something new, this is a continuation of what we saw last year by the way meantime Nick Foles I want to give him credit where credit's due nick foles under chip first. Let's go back to the PAC twelve. I moved to L. A. Do. L.. A. Radio. I wasn't so deep into the pack twelve back then by like who cares really. You know s e faced all those problems and they weren't a powerhouse anymore and who really cares right? I was told how Great Matt Barkley was playing for the TROJANS. And so I start watching PAC twelve a lot and we're talking about it on the air and I noticed clearly Andrew Luck is what people are saying he's great. He's better than everyone else who's the second best I heard a lot about Matt Barkley I heard a lot about brock osweiler. They wanted Barclay to be the Guy Osweiler was tall. That's a very tall. But he was okay Nick foles was clearly the second best quarterback in the PAC twelve behind Andrew luck and I remember sc going to Arizona and Nick Foles dicing of slicing and dicing. This. Guy's good. Then he gets drafted he plays for Chip Kelly Twenty seven touchdowns. Two interceptions people still don't believe him for some reason. Goes. To Jeff Fisher. He's awful I mean like if you're with chip Kelly, you're really good with Jeff Fisher really bad. If you give him the right coach. She can really produce now with the eagles later on, he goes back to the eagles later on. As Carson. wentz. As backup wentz is having this amazing MVP, but foles is the guy who takes and leads them on that improbable run through the playoffs and win Super Bowl Mvp and he does it by lifting his team when they need him too and by getting his team to believe. He has this effect. He's one of these pixie dust players. He, makes people want to play with this guy clearly. And the next year Carson Wentz is only okay and they're gonNA miss the playoffs Nick foles takes over one gets hurt please them into the playoffs leads them to the playoffs going to winning streak. Late, make the playoffs they go to soldier field they're supposed to get killed by the bears defense don't forget last year. A lot of people were saying was this last year two years ago already forget the point is a lot of people's use a lot of people were saying. That the bears defense makes them super bowl contenders they may come out of the NFC. Nick. Foles beat him. He led the Eagles to a win at soldier field. Now. That's not a tough enough place to play go. Play New Orleans at New Orleans, in the dome. And they were the favorites in the NFC. By the way, he almost beat the saints at the Saints after being the bears at Chicago. That was like you're not very seldom does it go back to back super? Bowl? Wins, right. But Nick foles a super bowl MVP. that. WAS A. Title Defense Right The champion went out but he went out with a road win against. I. Playing team into the playoffs then a road win against Chicago and very merely a road win against new. Orleans. Then, he goes to Jacksonville they're no good not a good team. They looked a little better than they actually were. Not a good team and he didn't do well just like he didn't do well with Jeff Fisher. And now he gets traded to Chicago. And Mitch Trubisky an athletic quarterback it's hard to tell Mitch Trubisky Josh. Allen. Lamar. Who's going to be the best among them Lamar Jackson and just been great. Josh. Allen is sending and now looks Great Mitch. TRUBISKY's not good. It's hard to tell with prospects. Especially Athletic quarterbacks who's GonNa be able to develop the accuracy down the field and the decision making Lamar Jackson Check Josh Allen Check so far. Mitch Trubisky. No but they get nick foles, tobacco them up and what happens yesterday? Oh I don't know he comes in and throws three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win the game. This dude, it's not a mirage with nick foles. If you give him the right coaching. Nick foles is a killer, a killer and his teammates obviously love him. They lay better when he is the quarterback everywhere he goes whenever he has the right coach. There's nothing. No, there's not a mirage. He was great in college. He was great early in his career with the right coaching. He was great with the right coaching when he got his chance with the eagles. I expect him to be great in. CHICAGO.

That's eight eight, eight I'm going so fast. All the PROMOS I have to read in the sponsorships. The paralleled success Rogers giving me too much to read eight, hundred, Eighty, eight, say Espn Eight, eight, eight, seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six, the Max. Kellerman. Show is presented by progressive insurance. All guests join us on the Shell Pennzoil performance line. So. The heater in they beat the Celtics I thought the Celtics win that series seven, even with Gordon Hayward healthy for the first two games I now think the heat we're going to win this series because when it mattered most the heat were better than the Celtics tatum's not quite ready to lead a team to the Promised Land I, think he will be soon. Meantime Jimmy Butler has got a lot of help. Not, just tyler hero who at the age of twenty is doing some superstar things in these playoffs. But of course, Gore drug choose the UNSUNG hero for a lot of the play offs. Duncan Robinson who there's a difference between three point special that guy shoots the he's a three point special and a guy like Dunkin Robinson, he's an elite three point specialists. And of course. BAM, out of bio. Who is Look Kendrick. Perkins isn't wrong when he he said he's the third best big in the game. Maybe he's certainly an elite big in this modern NBA. Here, he is. Talking about having to face Lebron James and the Lakers. Beyond the dog man nobody thought we'd get this far but we're going to go I'll play hard. We're underdogs always say so using go out there play harding. We toss the ball of Su who went. Well you are underdogs damn. But plenty of people thought you could get this far including me like usually in the NBA they're only two or maybe three team. So you think really have a chance to win a title, but to tell you the truth going into these playoffs, I thought clippers were going to win os raw mavericks had a chance I. Thought the Nuggets and the jazz maybe on the outside, it would be impossible but not in think. So the Lakers obviously had a chance I did not think Portland would win. I thought in the east. The Bucks. Raptors Celtics. At not the Sixers Simmons got hurt. Bucks. Raptors Celtics and heat. All had a chance I. didn't pick the heat. But I certainly thought it was possible. They could win most years. You only two or three teams could possibly even win this year was different. Meantime the Lakers Lebron James. Is. No one in Kareem you say, Kareem. As an overall basketball player was inferior to Lebron at his age in the sense that. Lebron is seventeen years in better than Kareem was seventeen years into Kareem's NBA career but Kareem was the greatest college player who ever lived. And given the amount of time Kareem was in College of course, he has more wear and tear on them and has played more basketball than Lebron by the time. He's a similar age, right? So even though it's not. Just. Eliminate how just talk about NBA. Lebron better seventeen years into his NBA career way better than anyone. who ever lived seventeen years in? No one's close. For career value in the NBA Lebron is all ready to go. But I don't think that's what we mean. When we say go I think what we mean is not just overall career value. I think what we mean is. What was the sustainable peak of the performance? For example, Nolan Ryan was a great pitcher for like twenty five years agreed pitcher. He was never as good as Sandy Colfax Colfax had a prime. That was four five years long. But colfax is greater pitcher at least when I talk about who's greatest I'm talking about long as you had a decent can't just be like a season or two. It can't be bill. Walton's won MVP year. But if you had a half a decade even at your peak and your peak was the highest ever. That's I think what we mean when we say greatest. So Jordan's peak was the highest ever. But Lebron. Let me tell you what Lebron? Has Done. Regular season. K. D. in two thousand fourteen wins the MVP and deserved. It became a much better defensive player and legitimately deserve the award. This is not like when Charles Barkley or Karl. Malone. We'll get the sympathy MVP when Jordan was in the League because you don't WanNa give it to the same guy ten times in a row. Jordan got five. He deserved ten easily like there was no close him. But you don't WanNa. Do that. Actually was the MVP of the regular season that year I was like really Lebron in your prime. But then at the end of the playoffs, Lebron's the best sorry Lebron for someone to you. Then came steph shooting from half court basically. Ball not sticking with them with with his handles like a mobile artillery unit. Shooting the lights out leading a team to seventy three wins. Sorry. Lebron steffes league, he should be the starve space jam to his league. Than the playoffs came and by the time it was over sorry Lebron's here league. Then, came for me honest. Oh, my God that regular season given the bronze age look at Yawn. Playoffs ended now Lebron the honest good as you and now Kawai. What a postseason from Kawai. Now we're heading into the finals loop. Sorry Lebron you're still the best. That's four really good contenders to the title that Lebron is now bumped off. K. D. don't tell me Okay do you want to rings against shut up? Katie joined seventy three win team and the re, and at that point no one could beat them and the reason he did that was because he couldn't beat Lebron neither could the warriors alone they had to join forces even the warriors first title against Lebron took place without Kevin love or Kyrie irving the bronze second best player was Matthew Della. Vedova give me a break. He won that series with any help at all against the warriors, and then he did beat them the next year when the warriors got even better. Linked up with candy because it was an admission of by the warriors and Katie, we can't beat this guy. Under normal circumstances. Now, then all contenders smoke has settled when when the dust has settled, Lebron remains standing and at the end of this heat series. He will remain standing the Lakers are GonNa, win the championship this year, and it's because of the best player on earth. Who for the really for the second time I didn't think Katie was better than him and I didn't believe you honest really was until the end of that postseason, I needed to see it. But. I thought Steph was better and I thought Kawai was better and I was wrong both times. Lebron James remains on the throne as he has since he took over from Kobe for what ten years now it's Remarkable he is the second greatest player who ever lived behind. Michael Jordan. The winner of tonight's Monday night football game. Who's going to be the best in the AFC? Last take next Max Kellerman show Max the podcast. The Max Kellerman show on ESPN radio ESPN news the ESPN APP and Sirius Xm Channel Eighty and on your smart speaker reach me at eight eight, eight, say Espn Eight, eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six. The Monday night football preview is brought to you by progressive insurance. Okay. So, here we go. Also my last week. Patrick Mahomes, versus Lamar Jackson. Has. been the question has been asked for the last couple of years is this going to be the new Tom Brady peyton manning is this going to be the best rivalry in sports I never thought so I never thought Lamar Jackson would be on Patrick Mahomes is level however Ryan Clark on I take today. Brought up a statistic that others have cited. Lamar Jackson because the question on I take was. Who has to be better to in order to win this game? WHO has a bigger and I said really question was who has to have a big green said actually, mahomes has to be have a big game and that may be counterintuitive because most people feel like the ravens offense is so built around Lamar Jackson where's Patrick? Mahomes has all these weapons. You can put another quarterback in and Kansas City is still score points but how would you run that offense without Lamar Jackson but in fact, I look at Kansas City and think this is a team which two years ago their defense stop them from winning super. Bowl and in fact, they should have won the super bowl they Tom Brady had just thrown a pick to end the game and the refs called it back because pre-snap penalty ridiculous didn't have any effect on anything and The, whatever they blew the whistle patriots usually get the whistle and. They. They, they brought it back and. Homes have touch the ball again brady in. Overtime. Scores, and that's it. Chief should have gone to the Super Bowl where I believe they would have beaten the rams but they didn't end. The fact of the matter is at the time I thought maybe the rams win that game because the rams I just was not impressed with the chiefs defense. I thought that she was a little bit underrated but really that's why. You looked at. I. Looked at them anyone I thought their little overrated because the defense is really not quite good enough yet. Then they revamped defense and last year it was underrated. And it was the reason they won really along with mahomes comeback. The defense tightened the screws on the niners in the Super Bowl, and anyway was a little underrated throughout the season. Pretty good. And now, this year, they look more like two years ago than they did last year. So mahomes has to be better than ever in order to win whereas the Ravens have given up so far in two games. Twenty two points. That's it. The Ravens Defense can play there the better overall team right now. And so mahomes if he's going to win is going to have to do that thing where he comes back in the game and does all these miracle things that he does all the time, right? He's going to have to have the bigger game but Ryan Clark said something interesting and I thought he actually won this debate because of it he didn't change the question, but he changed the perspective of the question by taking a step back by enlarging the question in a not just specific to this game but in a larger sense. Who needs to be bigger and here's the stat that Ryan Clark cited. Lamar Jackson against the rest of the NFL in the regular season is twenty, one and one. It's not possible. Twenty one in one. Was this Guy Twenty three right now? Twenty one in one. In your career against football, you're twenty one and one in the regular season. Against Patrick, mahomes in the regular season, he's own to. He's. As close to unbeatable in the regular season as anyone ever lived so far. And he hasn't yet beaten mahomes into matchups. In a larger sense, he's got to get that monkey off his back. In a larger sense, he has to show mahomes and himself and the world. That he can compete with Patrick mahomes with chips on the line, and that may even go away towards. Boosting their confidence in the playoffs.

Earlier in your show and I would like some clarification on this. Back this up with fast-track. Gorby. You want to judge a quarterback Yup. 'cause you said last night hit Aaron Rodgers played for. The New Orleans. Saints. Raise plate with the packers. The outcome would have been different what I saw. In addition to four. DEGREES, penalties Like a horse collar. Trying to the ball with a yard ahead for I found. The staff backup drew brees even last night at way better stats in their rodgers will he at least one person? Unit drew brees was was inefficient quarterback last night but drew brees and maybe it's the point in his career. But even in his prime drew brees was always incredibly accurate but he's not capable of making the same kind of plays in high leverage moments to Aaron Rodgers can make if you like drew brees it's because you like the consistency of the accuracy. Accuracy really you can have accurate quarterbacks meaning guys who can thread the needle, but who can thread the needle all the time? Drew. brees. I've ever seen his his consistency of the accuracy is the best I've ever seen put in Rogers has abilities with his arms and legs that drew brees just hasn't. He's able to make plays including plays last night that make you say, no one else can do that. Well, until I saw Patrick Mahomes, I thought he and he can also do that consistently. And I think that was the difference in the game drew brees played inefficient really good game. It was his first game of the season he beat Tom Brady but neither team nor quarterback played well we to he did not play. Well, we three played very well, I agree with you. He had a good game very good game. But that level he has a level of efficiency. That's super effective. Aaron. Rodgers. Has Magical powers that only he can make make the ball do things that no one else can do i. do think if you switch quarterback last night the packers went excuse me the saints win. But. So yes, drew brees, stats and certain ways look better. Eyeball is Aaron Rodgers. Thanks for listening to the Max Kellerman show. Make sure you subscribe rate and review.

Carson Wentz Extension, Game 5 and a Mailbag

"What is up real sports fam-? Welcome to episode two of the real under sport, odd cast, a sports, Snapchat pod when this episode we're gonna talk NBA finals, of course, is caving back ten the warriors come back to win this finals. We'll touch on the Marta Roseanne Carson Wentz is questionable contract extension. Answer some fans questions in the Monday mail bag and a whole lot more. So get ready for the pod. I'm your host Jack settlement from the account on snap that real underscore sports real underscore sports with me today is my co-host longtime best friend, Abe grant, Abe. How're you doing on this Sunday night? What works in without real sports familia at the so two? We got a lot in store for you guys attaching fun. Awesome. So the random player of the night, meaning, if you message me on snap this special player, I will add you back. It is huge. Lou the champion of the east over LeBron James in the past Abe. Any comments on heat of Turku don't leave him open in the corner. That's all I gotta say. That's a fact hopping into it. So on every Saturday post a trivia, question on my snap story, this is common as the surprise Abe by, in prepping for the south if the warriors win the finals Kurai will most likely be finals MVP. He's about minus six fifty in Vegas to win. So he's a lock to win. If the raptors went to other players have won finals MVP for two different teams quiet would become the thirty one of the Spurs you win. Raptors Abe, can you name the two other players in finals MVP with two different teams? The first answer is LeBron James that Semper, the Miami, he wanted in Cleveland on give the listeners, the second Jack this second is cream Abdul Jabbar. He actually wanted under the name Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the Lakers and the name, Lew Alcindor for the box. So I don't know if that fully qualifies, but that is answer to your Saturday, trivia, let top into them be finals. We got some exciting news today, having Durant practicing for the warriors aid you've predicted that he will be out for the series because now out call you doctor until terms. But do you think he comes back and we will get into the impact that he'll make if he does while thank you for referring to me as Dr because I've been spot on all of my predictions revolving. Kevin durant. And I have no reason veer away from those predictions saw today that he is questionable. He practiced today also saw. That he was the first one off the court during the practice and that the warriors did not stay on the court for too long during practice. I have no reason to believe that he's gonna play this is the first time we've seen him on the court playing basketball doing anything. No word on how he's feeling calf achilles whatever you wanna call it. We all know. Hi. How I feel that it's an achilles even if he does come back Jack I'm sorry, this thing is over. It's done. The people in Toronto would be drinking maple syrup on the street, Iranian having a good time and bringing the first championships Toronto. This thing is a rack I think that so apparently he went through private scrimmaging on before game floor, and it was more of a setback than encouraging note. So I thought he was going to be done for the series. And then there's a report about two hours before the report that he's gonna practice that, like he's sitting out, and he's not rushing back and his teammates, or pretty. Appointed him. Did you buy into any of that report? I'm biding all of it. Well, I think I think Kevin Durant knows what's ahead of him at the end of this finals knows he's leaving, whether he goes to New York LA. He's out in my opinion, and he doesn't he what is he needed play for to validate his greatness, he came, you want to finals, MVP's, you want to rings for the warriors? I think the injury is way more severe than were hearing. I think everything that we're hearing in the media's smokescreen just throw the rafters off to have been plannable differently, whether they know if he's playing if he's not gonna just defensively and I'm not buying any of it. Once I see. Kevin durant. Take the court here. Mike green, Jeff Van Gundy, and the crew star talking live on television, then I'll buy into Kevin Durant. But until that ball tips trust. I went through as Sixers sandwiched while indeed. You never know they're thrown out, false reports all the time and you never know they're gonna until they're gonna play if it apply until five minutes before. The game if they're in the lap lines, they're taking the court, so until I see Kevin Durant there as far as I'm concerned, he's out in the word got to go without him. So the only reason why I bought into the report. A little was because think about this for Durant. Right. He had told he's not needed his told all year Steph team, they can women Adam, they sweep Portland ago the finals, and then he sits out and what is the time hypothetically based on the report that he was sitting out in not rushing back that he's using comeback. It's when he's in another win win situation. He literally cannot lose. He comes back plays while in they lose while it wasn't as fault. They lost four games before him. He comes back and they win. He's the hero, he rides the New York City on the backs of, of all the people cheering him on. But I just wanna make an incredible MBA theory. If anyone believes the league could be rigged. If anyone wants to believe that this is the perfect script that the NBA has ever orchestrated taverna rant is up. Three one. He's on Oklahoma City. What happened lose the series guy? So then go gone goes onto the finals, what happens there. They got three on the Brian James, the hero brings the title to Cleveland and what do we have? Now the full circle of life. Kevin Durant being up three one. He's a snake. But once he do he made his decision to come to the warriors to make them Zayn stay to make them a champion. He comes back three one they realized three in or out. I mean with that not be to picture picture-perfect yet. But I think the only caveat in there that the difference between the Cavs coming back in the warriors that Kevin Durant is not brawn. James, he has never been LeBron James. He's not LeBron's James currently, and even if he does come back and he could be fully healthy tomorrow, and the warriors, will not win this series you know why. Because they have not given me. I know Kevin Durant has been out in, like he's a huge part of their team level, blah, but they have not been played. Warriors basketball. They average what twelve turnovers game in the regular season. They're putting up fifteen their plan sloppy death. While turn the ball fifteen plus times these games. They're not getting back in transition to being killed in transition defense the entire series. This isn't the warriors that we've seen the entire time. And people are making it out to seem like the warriors are winning the series are losing the series, rather than the raptors are winning this series. And I don't think Toronto's getting enough credit for how well they're playing. They've been everywhere on defense suffocating right, right? The second the ball gets to any player on the court, the right in their face. I mean granted, there's a lot less attention. They can focus more attention on staff, and Klay, whether he's injured or not, because Kevin Durant on the court ah Toronto is playing fantastic basketball, and you more than anyone know how high of been on the rafters all season and how I thought they were the best team in the east, and they've showed well, whatever about will Sixers but they're playing like the best team in these in their playing. They are the NBA champions, collide Leonard is not afraid of any moment. Sure he had a shaky first-half last game, what you do in the beginning of the second half knowing that they were down for the time it had to come back with a big impact came out it a huge three went down the other side of the gotta steal hit another huge three Fred vanfleet after the game said he too big FU shots coming out of coming out of the gate guard with that he's not shy away from the moment. And even if even if it goes to six seven Kawai, Leonard's demeanor is not gonna change the route, and I think that's the difference maker, and that no matter what the Rapids are still gonna win this series. You saw it as they won game for went back to the locker room. Nobody was smiling. Nobody was celebrating this win. They just wanted to handle business and keep going. I think they're going to do it. They're gonna come out. They're gonna show. I think this is over tomorrow night. I definitely agree that there will be no asterik Asterix for the title like it was a complete. Clean series yesterday went down. But the raptors are dominating the series where I do disagree with you is I think Durant a hundred percent which I find it hard to believe he would be tomorrow. Viewed one hundred percent. The series is now a fifty fifty shots may be fifty fifty fifty shot because the rat, so sorry, what was that? You flip a coin hazard house, fifty fifty fifty to one side. Please flip a coin because you have to factors. I know they have been on phase. Like you talked about their Kanda meaner even demeanor but you got one in Toronto, right? You always say get one in Toronto one game at a time you think they're losing game. Six in gunsight icy. No shot. And then the pressure's back on them in seven. The thing about this warriors team versus others in the past, like if the raptors had done this to the Harrison Barnes teams. I get why the series of her. But this team was built around having superstars. And when you remove the scoring superstar, and you're left with, like McKinney. Aucoin cook and all these guys who literally cannot swear. The basketball leg it is. I don't even know how they're in the NBA. It's, it's kind of mind blowing, but you add back a thirty point. That's what they're missing. Enin elite defender, who can guard why? This is all contingent on him being one hundred percent healthy if he's hobbled. Any can't guard y in. I can lock him down, obviously series over but on the idea that he's one hundred percent. Like you said, if he comes back, this is a fifty fifty shot. You remind me of myself from last year. And now I'm realizing how stupid, I sounded coming hearing out your voice from the Sixers were down three one against Boston, and I said, don't let us get that game five do not let us game get that game five or this thing we've got a series. And now I read how stupid I sounded. So I thank you for that. The raptors gonna win this series. I think they're closing out tomorrow with or without Kevin Durant. Even if he comes back, you mentioned something how there's no shot they'd win a game six in Golden State, but you probably would have said the same thing about the rafters, you'd say it's impossible that they would take both in Golden State in three hundred which they did. So there's no reason to believe that they can't win another one in the oracle, there's literally one reason and his name is Kevin Durant, like that is the reason. She's the whatever we wanna do our rankings. He's a top player in the league. He's been the violence. May be back to back years. And I think the part that's underrated as it's not that it's the ramp. That's coming back. It's that he is the piece that they're missing the scoring matter missing and defending the current finals EMMY. So I think it's a fifty fifty. I'm not saying anything on the series. But if he's one hundred percent like evade somehow come out of their port Durant is good to go and his cleared apply. Will play his you know, his ass off. I'm taking the waters. I think the win the series without Kevin Durant. They won't have the best player on the court collider's second around planet earth. Congratulations candidates coming home. That's a miserable jinx. Speaking of Canada, is our good friend, not really our good friend. But I would like to be friends with him tomorrow Rosen. I just feel bad for him. Like I saw a song Meam. It was like an oppose the my story was in out D'Amato's, dived for this any he truly did like Larry got to stay be part of the title team. Hopefully for Toronto do feel any bad for for demar. Hell no. Paid him. San Antonio living. Fine life in Texas. Whatever he's still got buddies on the team. They were never winning with him. We all know that is kryptonite was the Braun their whole kryptonite is what the rafters needed to do at don't feel bad for demogra- Rosen. He's doing jeez plan under the bet. One of the best coaches of all time in Gregg Popovich, getting some great basketball. Now you played really well this year for his immi- opinion, the Spurs exceeded expectations had a great season and rose, they got John Murray coming back next year. I think they're gonna be good team. I do not feel bad for demogra- Rosen because of the paycheck, he receives so derozen allegedly, according to win horse could get traded this offseason any locations. You would kind of be interested in, I can't think of any off the top of my head. Could he be like, who do I think you keep them in the state taxes sent him to douse with Luga apps that could be a fun? A fun trio of players do. Think Kristaps may stay there after next year. I don't know we'll see about that. But that that's an interesting three piece. I think that went championship absolutely not. But still wanna watch. What about in a couple years ago, you know? Yeah. What about out? Atlanta. I just don't do think he'll ever be the number one player on a championship team. I know you're there in my opinion. There's. Five is number one players on championship team in the NBA LeBron's. Collides. Cades. Jaanus. We can throw Steph and Harmon there too, even though hardens of perennial his. And so now we move onto have you noticed anything with Nick nurse out coaching curse? Oh, just to take you back to that. Okay. C-series Stephen is on I take and he's ranting about how it's very simple. Billy Donovan a rookie. Coach is out coaching Steve Kerr, he makes them tactic changes. They come back when the series but so far in the series, I just see nurse out coaching curb constantly, have you noticed anything to that to that? I, I don't wanna attributed to coaching and take anything away from what Nick nurses doing doing a fantastic job. I'm just going to chalk it up to personnel like look at the guys at the warriors were thrown out there Jonas direct directo. Whatever the heck is name is out Fonda McKinney. Like Steve charges doesn't have the guys. They the raptors can focus all their attention to Steph curry and one thing that Nick nurse is doing that. I like he's doing this thing with Steph curry, or when someone comes up on a pick and roll, he screening them. He switching the screens, but then he's throwing different look right away. When Steph curry thinks that switching then he just double teams in blitz Steph. Curry, and throwing everything offer staff grand theft, and having a great series put up forty seven in that game. Ray wasn't enough obviously. But I'm not gonna go as far to say that Nick nurses fully out coaching Steve Kerr, given what Steve Kerr has to work with. Yeah, I mean I guess I'm a huge fan because Nick nurse has his own branded hats that he wears the every press conference heavy there. Maybe. It just Nishel. It's not a ham, the great logo from Nick nurse so shots, Nick nurse. So he looks kid from Stewart. Yeah. He does we know that. So Carson Wentz. So just to the people now obviously talked ton of MBA on the podcast, that idea of the pottage is keep up with the current news and what's being talked on the news. So Carson Wentz was just extended able read the numbers, obviously, being resident diehard eagles fan Abe thoughts on the extension and what was the contract extension. Pay the man planes, simple, Carson, God deal, he was always going to get his deal. I hate the I'm lik looking on eagles Twitter saying how you're gonna pay this guy this much with all the injuries. Get off my time one. Carson got a four year one hundred twenty million dollar extension that includes a hundred seven million guaranteed. And yes, this guy did have a serious injury in college a serious injury in the NFL and the total deals round out about six years, one hundred fifty four million and I love every bit of it. You know why? Because by trading with the second eagles traded up in the draft to get Carson Wentz, they were sold on this was their guy for the future. No matter what he came out. He showed promises rookie year. He did show rookie struggles. And what are you doing your too? He came out and was MVP probably the, the odds on favorite for MVP at the time until he went out against the Rams. Then Nick full comes in has some Nick foles. Magic we go on the rest of that story. And then Carson comes out this year, he shaky on and off. It's gonna happen after you come off a tornado Seattle in any report with a back injury. All this stuff Nick foles comes in doesn't thing once again. But however, Roseman in the eagles front office. The entire time have been adamant that Carson Wentz their guy going forward. So if you truly believe that I understand the concerns about injury and Pantai this much. But if you truly believe that he's your guy going forward, and he has shown promises of being a franchise quarterback than you have to pay him and you have to pay him now because as we've seen in the NFL, it's a copycat league if you let the Rams go out there and page our Goff. And you at the Cowboys go out there and pay Dak Prescott before you before you pay Carson than Carson's money is only gonna have to increase in his contract. He's gonna say I'm more X amount more than these guys at cetera. And now we're gonna see gawk at his extension deck in his extension. I hope that guesses extension. I hope I hope. And it will probably be more than Carson. And the reason I love doing it right now, rather the next year is because next year. Pat Mahomes is gonna break the back. You might get a two hundred million dollar contracts, and we're seeing in the NFL every quarterback that continues to get paid. It's just more and more the franchise quarterback because that's what they demand. It's the most important position in sports, and it brings that kind of money, I think eventually, you might even see quarterback starting to get paid MLB player style numbers upwards of the two hundred three hundred million three hundred million, but it's just gonna keep getting crazier and eagles did it at the right time. They didn't early Carson could have said, no. But knowing that he has his injury injury history. He wanted to capitalize on his money right away. It worked out for both teams. I'm excited if you don't pay them, there's this, there's angst in the locker room about is he our guy going forward say he goes down with something this year. God forbid them what you do. You have Nate Saad failed in this. Thorson battling out in training camp to see shoot we have to pay these guys. But I love what, how did I love the deal? Even if you ever GE out the rookie delays currently on and the extension brings it out to about why the twenty six and a half twenty seven million over the annual value over the next six years. I love it. We got our guy, and he's gonna lead us back to the promise land. He's gotta do what Nick did Marin ago where it's great vibes Philadelphia right now. I'm going to need someone to check the math from our Penn State alum who owned the spot calculators his per year contract, factored into the if you if you consider rookie, contra now next to seasons it averaged about twenty six and a half twenty seven million dollars a year. A new do that on the flies rooms. Well, I've seen it on Twitter. Maybe I was giving you should take the credit. That's, that's your fault Manap gas. My thoughts in the winds extension. I was I was in on Wednesday is rookie year. Like you said, Goodyear, his software year, and the level I mean, his team months, while he would have been there, assuming he stayed healthy m last year, I get the struggles when he is back, but he never really looked the same. It gives me a little worry. But like you said you just have to pay these quarterbacks you have to pay them. And at least you can say, we're paying because he's played in MVP level, you can argue, and I'm sure both of us would argue even though you'll want him to get the extension. But someone like Dax so there's this. There's this level of quarterbacks obviously of the tier one Mahomes, Rogers ready who you're paying them. No matter what any of the tier two, which is kind of a once and they're in this, this same thing with Gough. But I think you'll pay got airport that crushed got into your to don't shoot. They're known owner Noche up. But then you can kinda translate into the MBA ended. Like de LA right? He is a max player just because of the run of the league in the salary cap like should you really pay him should you pay Tobias? And then should you supermax Kemba? So that's more. The conversations may went totally. The extension also like you said about how you're just gonna pay more if you wait, the Sixers did it with Embiid. It works out in the long run. So to dive into the money mail. Bagging keep this conversation, going creek. Dude asked went back is expected to be the best quarterback in division. What are what are your expectations for him this season? And is he obviously the best quarterback in the division? I mean he's hands down the best quarterback in division. I don't even wanna get into the New York Giants of our listeners time the only person that we have to consider not Haskins is gonna be good case keenum over grocery them. Whatever is Dak on. I don't think Dak is nearly as good as the Cowboys are gonna pay him to be. And I'm glad that they've you him. So highly because I get to see him for the next X amount of years. I'm expecting big things at Carson from what I've seen OTA's and minicamp. He's, there's no need brace on. He's just wearing a leg sleeve. He's looking good. He's had good numbers came out shaking the first practice, but ever since him in Sean Jackson, rebuilding, this relationship that should flourish, our offense in my opinion, we have the best weapons all round in the NFL with our backfield in Jordan, Howard mile Sanders just drafted out of Penn State. The Sean Jackson, Sean Jeffrey, and then we've got two elite tight ends in. Zacher. It's Dallas Qatar. So there's really no excuses for Carson. I'm gonna say right now. That I'm not gonna give him any excuses, but just a week ten when things might be a little up in the air and Mike thrown out, an excuse or six but affecting big things out of him. There's nothing short of a division title. We should be getting a first round byes very well in the in the mix. And I think we Super Bowl or Boston, my opinion, and I think we can do that. Roller boss, high expectations. But fair ones. You've been deep in the playoffs. The past two years. You should walk to a division title. I mean he's definitely the best quarterback in that division. I think the only narrative to John here is like some Cowboys fans loved AC I don't really see the appeal one of my best friends day Velasco. He's a Cowboys fan and despises Dak Prescott and I think there's a fifty fifty split in that fan base. They're kind of fighting between. He's like good enough to be a franchise quarterback, but not good enough to win a Super Bowl in my opinion, end the only quarterback to really do that outside of foles because that's like a really strange one off. I would say is Joe flacco. He just caught absolute fire in our Super Bowl run, but he looked pass. You look in the past, and it's like it's breeze. Brady Rodgers Rothlisberger of them. You need the star quarterbacks to win. I don't really ever. Reaches there, the thing about tack is his productivity thus far in the NFL has been to a level where now Dallas doesn't have a choice. But today, you're not gonna go back to the drawing board and pick a quarterback, whether you think this guy can win you assume not. He's shown somewhat of being competent to above average quarterback in the NFL. And now Dallas back against the wall, and they're inevitably gonna have to pay him. And Dak is gonna Colin coward something with two blind resumes, and one was clearly better than the other. And you revealed it was Daqing Carson. But I end Dak was better than Carson by the numbers. But I think we can both agree that Carson is a better quarterback than back Prescott would you agree? I think that like you're saying it's that he can put up the numbers, but he can't win rock, twelve green, while he did he did win those rookie yet. But he for a string of three games when the role you have to be excellent and he is. He is a winner is a game manager like he has. Everything. But does he have enough to if the team sport? So who knows? But I don't say say it's a great question, by the way by EMC pre do good job. All right. Before we continue to your word from our sponsors when you're selling online.

And that's with or without Katie say, Katie leaves. I still think they have a chance to be a top team in the NBA in my opinion dynasty youth one championships in the past you continue to contend for championship. You look at a team like the San Antonio Spurs. I think we can all agree that their dynasty one to that championships. So you don't have to necessarily keep repeating repeating championships, but just being in the mix of it, and being the talks at the end is what I view as being a dynasty. And if you keep that court together of Steph Klay dream, which, I imagine they well you get Kevin Durant, what thirty odd million off the bus and have that championship pedigree. You have Steve Kerr coaching. You have that that new stadium. The new billion dollar stadium free agent role players that can make a difference on team. I'm just gonna take Danny green since he's in the series, right? Now he can be a great contributor to championship team. And those are the pieces you need that we're seeing with the warriors right now with their missing. They're missing those key role players off the bench that can come in and give them fifteen good minutes night, and those mis mis with the Sixers we didn't have that on the bench either. And I think they'll still have the attractiveness to free agents to come play for championship pedigree team. As long as you keep that court together, you can still stay in the mix for championship, and keep the dynasty going whether they continue to win championships or not is a whole different story, but they'll be in the mix. And that's how I view dynasty is an excellent point with the Durant leavings the next. I think you said that. But yeah, you can fill the spots and look at the raptors team. They have one star they have a secondary player of any of Klay dream on probably better than a Marcus type. And if you fill those, like that's why the raptors of one all these games in the series is because they had a lowering night than they had them bleak night. Then Bachan Aydin game for like if you have competent role players you can, but the answer. Ethan's question, I think it is the end of the warriors dynasty because I think eighty leaves and I don't mind your point about being in the conversation. But what truly makes dynasty to may, and they've been a dynasty, but what will continue to be a dynasty is if they win one more championship. So the Spurs would go like you said years without winning but they replace these guys like Dunkin's, retiring whatever these guys are leaving. And I just think you need that one title Hawaii, kind of filled into that Dunkin role of in star. And I just. Don't see them winning another championship ever. Realistically. It's tough to predict that far in the future. But I, I think my thing is if you see you say you don't see them winning championship again. Like mclintock's mortgage a won a championship without Durant. Yeah. I just think that those guys have gone through too many minutes. I think that they've figured out how to fully defend that team and they'd have to bring in some real unique pieces to redo it. I'm not saying like you said, I do think they'll be one of the top teams in the league year in year out while they have those guys. But like you also said earlier, you make a lot of pointsman really proud. There's only five guys league you can do you name staff. But does he have enough if he doesn't have another star next to him? It's tough to say, but we'll we'll see. It'll be exciting thing. I think just the coolest part is that if the words dynasty ends is this, the end of the true super team like three stars and just fill the roster out and do we see more teams on the raptors mentality. The nuggets mentality if the blatant had another player like a full scribe who can go seven or eight deep because no one's using a full ban anymore in the playoffs like bench shorts is this, the end of super teams as we know I, I don't think that's true. I think super teams and building one of his throat one out there like Joel Embiid. Ben Simmons to lies about Levin, it places that much of an emphasis on you have to hit on your late first round draft picks at something to stick with doing the ass. You see guys like for concord. Mayes, or I'm just don't give you any productivity, and that's you have to hit on these guys late in the first round that can come in off the bench. Give you solid minutes on a small contract because of the end of the day, if you're paying these stars yet they're gonna get you to fifty sixty wins in the second third seen in the conference but in the playoffs when you have a seven game series to game plan. And you can only the other team can focus on just four guys and not have to worry about the rest. That's where you're gonna fall apart. And that's how you need to have those guys that can come in and be productive on small contracts and those late first round picks for these championship contending teams are what makes the difference between. If you can have a super seat super team that works are not in my opinion. Well, let's great transition into cokes questions, yo, h Q. Thank you for asking this question in the Monday mail bag in. He says who is our sleepers in the NBA draft. NBA draft is June. Twenty in Brooklyn. I hope to be an attendance in eleven days. It'll be my brother's birthday. You know Casey, you can you earthly. You could come up. Big two zero for him his golden year as they say, if your birthday number falls on your age about case. Yeah, who cares about him? So who's yours LeBron NBA draft in, essentially, you know, who are you looking for the Sixers to grab at the end of the first round. This doesn't have to be necessarily Sixers routed, though, I'd love for him to get taken by us, mice leaper coming out of this year's NBA draft is the point guard out of Purdue. Carson Edwards who was a second team all American this past year. I think his style of play fits the NBA perfectly. We saw him in the NCAA tournament going, absolutely nuts hitting from your too old. If you're if here's say someone about this everyone remembers jimmer for that. And if you remember jimmer for that than this podcast might be a little too old trio, we call Jim arranged. Kids nowadays might be calling Steph range, bottom line. He was pulling up from God knows where his style of play. He's a catch and shoot guy. He can bring the ball as well. He averaged twenty four and a half points for game this season. Thirty five percent from three forty forty percent from the field is just extremely productive. Can come off streams can be off? All I think he fits the perfect NBA pro-style nowadays just being able to come off screens catching fire the ball, I expect big things out of him. I think he'll fall somewhere into a bench role coming out of the draft being that he's a twenty four to thirty pick in this year's draft. But I think big things are coming from Carson Edwards. He's experienced in that he was a full four year player at Purdue. He has a high ask ball, I q I think it's common have a big impact on the sleek. So just hypothetically, if the Sixers got him, you know, kinda replaces a Rettig roll any worries about him long-term defensively. Mamiya. With his height. I mean yeah. Of course, you can say that his height can be a problem. I mean look at other sports in calories height, whenever why I mean, it's too early to tell you bring a guy in you teach them the NBA house played any it comes to a mentally over the years. I don't trust me. I don't want Carson networks to come in be are starting shooting guard on night, one next year but to be a seventh and eighth man in his rookie year shirt, and then he can develop eventually starting guard on, I'm not too much into his height. And I think I think he's been very promising acre. If you could just combines out your Smith defense with Carson's shooting would be quite right. Mayes lebron? The draft is a UNC player Cam Johnson. He's also projected second half the first round average seventeen in six at UNC shot at forty five forty six percent from three fifty percent of the field. I mean forty six percent from three is just nutty really long guy. He's six nine to ten a three D guy, potentially the one downside to him. Why people are picking 'em late, which is laughing. He's the ideal sleeper, is that he's twenty three years old entering the draft. He will be older than Aaron Gordon when he plays on one and Aaron Gordon will be entering the six season which is crazy. But that's exactly why I think, is a great sleeper and would be perfect for championship team or a team that went deeper in the playoffs to just fill into an eighth man ninth man come off the bench. His threes place in good day, and grab some good minutes. Do you have anything on camera? Wadi. I love that pit with Cam Johnson. I think he's probably one probably be best shooter coming out of this draft. And you like I said, you look at the guys that are getting drafted late in the first round capacity. Awesome. He didn't come in right away. He wasn't the PASCAL Siaka me is he came in. He produced off the bench, which is what is asked of them. And then you eventually develop in that starting role you draft these, these older guys that are more experienced because these championship team. It's not like they're these tanking team us going into next year that they need these guys usage rate to be through the roof. Now. They just need them to have productive menace. Cam Johnson comes in eases from corner threes. I think that's a great pick. I think he's a great career. I really like him. I hope that I mean it'd be perfect for the Sixers. It'd be perfect for the box. Be perfect. A lot of places. But at wraps up episode two of the real underscores sports, Snapchat Haag cast, please rate us five stars on the item store.

I told you there diffuser Yeah what about you but you've been up to our absolutely nothing until about half an hour ago when I set up the new pressure points merchandise store we didn't we should have come up with a theme song We should have come up with a better name. We should have done something other than set up the pressure points. T. Shirt store that too in preparation but you have a lot of money if you still have money for your stimulus. Check like if you haven't blown it on hookers and cocaine and sex dolls. I'll God we gotta discuss. We'll we'll talk about that after the the blurb so I should probably know what the website is.

God the other was this is AJ favorite put on Dildo inside inside the vagina so that you can get pegged by your silicon. What you're now so on trance. Yeah and then you like the option for pubic hair or no pubic hair or in the coffin the China or not built in China. Fucking storage box. Which looks like a coffin. I spent too much time on his website. Just like what the fuck is going on here. I got close. I'm already out God. It's so bad in. Did you see any of the ones that were like overly like cartoon? I did not spend much time off website. I spent like three minutes because like I don't want this. I'M GONNA get some weird ads. I sign was. How is this a cold like how is this culture? Like how is why. Why was this? A sustainable business. I know and I looked at the prices. Yeah like twenty five hundred dollars or some Shia all of almost got I would. I'd rather just pay ten bucks for a dollar store hooker right and you can get ten things yeah perfect. Oh God Yep pure trash I I hate. It hurts me. Thank God I thought those are things that you could only buy on the dark net. I'm disappointed in the rain humanity. You know this is worse than rule. Thirty four man so four of us. Oh No it's just voices fucking disembodied moaning back and forth across this new table Yeah so quick. Segue into our subject for the for the day by the way. I'm I'm sorry Any of that stuff was made your ears bleed that we discussed there but we really know how to run away new listener. GonNa say if anybody tunes in like fresh on this episode. They're not they have no idea. What the fuck where. They're not coming back. But I mean that's sort of every episode. Why this is why I was GonNa say this is why we're not growing but we're actually growing really say we're doing all right This episode like I said Bhopal which I actually looked up how to pronounce this correctly because I was tired of not being able to pronounce the names of things. And it's so big trouble in Little Paul now so Papa Bhopal is this have to do with the clergy. What clergy the Papa Papa you know the VATICAN WITH APOLLO? Nothing does not not not going along those lines. We're talking about Paul India baby now before I get started once again. Which is usually my go-to there are two things that I'm going to start with my intro to chemicals that you should know about now the first one is methyl isocyanate which methylisocyanate is five hundred times worse than hydrogen cyanide if it's not kept in spotless refrigerated conditions it can react explosively with itself Which is why a lot of chemical engineers recommend you store it in Brealey tiny quantities or just not at all it's corrosive to the is respiratory tract and skin so it's like a chemical corona virus and it causes. Pulmonary Dima which is oh that's just liquid in the lungs so no big number two. I'm referred to this. One is phase two as Carbon Tetra Chloride Carbon Tetra quote chloride. Jesus Christ Tetra. I fucked it up you guys I could. I could pronounce Papa but I can't pronounce this one. I just fell Paul B. H pal. Google them. I was like be. Ap L. Battle so carbon tetra chloride causes fatty livers and liver cell destruction And this is if it's consumed so it's booze but on like a cellular level like it. It's way worse than just drinking. Alcohol also causes kidney failure solid. And if you're consuming it frequently enough. You get vomiting headaches and dizziness. Yeah nothing wrong with any of those but there are other symptoms that get into when I talk about base too. So referring to phase one phase one starts now Her awful looking hate myself. That's one of the t shirts. GonNa say it's GonNa say D- is awful. That's or I fucking hate myself. D So in Bhopal India nineteen eighty-four. Union Carbide factory was working with missile. Methyl Ice Oh my fucking God. I shouldn't have done this session down at and you do this. They were working with my God Menlo Isocyanate which if you remember what I was talking about. They kept it in a huge tank in Bhopal Bhopal God damn it the size of a steam locomotive. Now that's fine. This is fine no big deal. Nobody cares as you have a slightly larger than steam locomotive refrigerator. Right so they so you see. That's Union Carbide factory. I'm just GONNA call him. Uc throughout this. They had been wanting to sell their company to Brazil or Indonesia because but in Indonesia whatever it in Asia. I'm on fucked up on all this coffee. I'm now going crazy. So they wanted to sell because they couldn't really afford it so they started to cut costs now over four years so from nineteen. Eighty to like nineteen eighty-four They cut the MAC unit in half. Which is the methyl isocyanate? They cut that in half from twelve people handling it to six. They cut maintenance for that same area from six people to to. Oh that's fine. And then the Control Room. One operator over seventy panels and indicators and controls which were mostly faulty throughout the entire for years Their safety training was reduced from six months. How how much she thinks either do such safety training a half in half so they reduce it from six months three months three months. Yeah so their safety. Training was reduced from six months to two weeks. Oh God and they changed their like the little. Oh Hey these are safety things that we go by. They changed those from Indian to English and most of the people they hired didn't speak English so they're like Oh these are safety sayings and they can't even they don't even know what the Hell it means. And then you see started boasting. Oh we've saved one point two five million dollars but I mean we don't really have anything left to cut. So they hit their one point two five million dollars in savings prop Saddam in literally just tanking employees and safety and they said the only thing that we can really save on is if we cut back on our refrigeration for the MDC tank. And there's nothing. There's no problem. Yes how much they were saving everyday by reducing. How much guess just two dollars. No they saved thirty seven dollars a day. That was it. That's it that's all. They were savings seven dollars a day which was just amazing. That adds up. Oh yeah totally. Who cares about safety controlling very volatile large batch of no big deal? It's just the size of a fucking train. That's fine nothing could go wrong here. So based on this. I'm sure you're thinking this could never be as bad as as Chernobyl. No no no not at all not at all this would be just fine. This far reaching impacts on the environment normal Tuesday afternoon So in one thousand nine hundred eighty two they had gotten a safety audit by the. Us thing this is their their during their cuts. Now the safety audit they had found sixty one hazards thirty of which were critical. Eleven of which were in the SI unit Jesus eleven critical hazards in a volatile chemical area. No BIG DEAL. I mean is who gives a shit? It's just it could kill a bunch of people. I mean it could melt out your eyeballs. But it's fine and he's okay fine. They got to maintenance. So there is a whistle blower that tried to notify the Chief Minister and he said investigate before. Bhopal turns into Hitler's Gas Chamber was his direct quote to the minister Now December second nineteen eighty-four two years after their audit which they didn't change anything with their audit all they did was to continue cutting costs on December second nineteen eighty-four. It was like eleven fifty eight. Pm It's night everybody's asleep and None of the safety systems at UC working so the sirens weren't working noth- like literally. Nothing was really going on concerning safety there. And all of a sudden a white vapor started coming out of the tank and as you was evening with the wind. A that gas started kind of settled down over Bobo fine Started to settle down and some people woke up coughing They were count like our lungs. Were kind of burning but if felt like like we would we return to our kids and say. Hey it's okay. Somebody's probably just burning chillies. It's all right like just go back to sleep. So then people started waking up with their eyes and noses watering their lungs burning and some of them were just woke up and started puking everywhere. That's that's by. It's probably just stomach. Poke and at that point. A lot of people were like what the Hell 'cause it wasn't just like this mysterious like Oh thin white missed. It wasn't like carbon monoxide. The invisible killer dish. It was literally a white smoke. That was settling over the town and so people were recounting that they would get out of their house and they couldn't even see the streetlights it would just be like a brown glowing dot in the distance because this fog was getting so heavy and this fog is just littered like it's burning. Their skin there is are burning and like its disintegrating. They're fucking bodies in their lungs. So people wake their kids up there like we need to go. We need to get Outta here. So they start running out of their homes and because cows and dogs were getting affected by it as well. People are getting trampled by like panicked cows. That are just running through the streets. Trampling people They were saying that you couldn't go anywhere without having to like step over dead bodies or like people that could barely move because of the pain. Oh that's fine. Yeah no big deal so there are people that are just drowning in their own body fluids. No big deal just a regular Tuesday like right now one woman. She was carrying her son and she was trying to hurry to get to her her father who was on a truck that was like come on come on so she sets her son down because she was pregnant and she starts to. Miss Carrie in the street. Oh God on dead bodies. She's literally just sitting there fucking miss carrying with how heavy this smoke is. It's just burning through everything through the God And so the the GRANDPA. He just grabs his son or his grandson. He's like all right. Let's get the hell out of here. They start driving away and looks down. You realize that the boy grabbed wasn't his grandson. It's just random kid. Because of all the chaos that's going on And I mean survivors came out with like because after this. Obviously over a couple of people survived a lot of people but if you made it out alive from the first night generally you'd come out completely blind or you come out with emphysema or by pulmonary. Embolism a demon horrible. Yeah no no. That's fine absolutely terrible. So twenty five hundred people died that night just that night that's like I can't even fathom that so many. That's that's a everybody who's listened to podcasts this plane that's a lot of people. Well I think so. I mean that's a lot of twenty five hundred bodies in the street that are poisonous sitting there and if you touch them transferred yeah and on top of that. You can't even go back into the city because of how bad this gases. It's not just going to go away overnight yet. Still Linger Yeah. So eight thousand people have died over the course of two weeks from when it happened so twenty five hundred that night. Eight thousand over two weeks in two thousand eight or sorry not in two thousand eight and two thousand nineteen. They had announced it. Five hundred and seventy thousand people have been injured over the course of the what like thirty six years that it's been going on because I'm still being affected by it so it's not just a gas so it's also like getting onto surfaces. It's contaminating face too little talk about But yeah it is. It's like so these Vaso wins going to blow and it's going to go into the atmosphere and it'll be fine. It'll just sinking and it's settling into the the soil. It's like covering parts of homes their bodies that they're having to move and get out of there because they didn't didn't permanently evacuate Bhopal like they didn't tr noble but this was before Chernobyl this before everything happened there and it's like what the fuck were you guys doing like in all getting to. What like the response was so the current death toll is is at twenty thousand people Now when you see was approached by about it. They said they weren't going to reveal the What gas leaked due to being a trade secret? Yeah that's a fucking cop out and because they said that doctors weren't able to to diagnose what was going on because they don't know what chemical is doing this so these people now like I'm going over am is really you could say that it's all like he's assuming but for the most part it's entirely likely that it was. I see even though they haven't come out and said Oh yeah it was. Nyc was leaked by like it's consistent with exactly so One of the guys had come out that they interviewed after everything happened and he said when my breathing normal I feel like living but when it becomes heavy thinking stops and absolute pain takes over. I become worthless and A little while after that interview because they're not able to to treat all this because out overwhelm any so they can't afford it like when you you can't go to work because you're literally dying. Think horribly every single day when you're breathing it's killing you so you can't go to work at a regular job. I'll even then it's like that's too much to handle even in a even with like a with any kind of medical system it would be completely overwhelmed with that kind of with an entire town just showing up. Yeah seriously and Nobel Lotta people. I'd assume just never went in. They never went into get treated for anything because like well. We can't afford it and they don't even have beds for us so A little while after he had done that interview he set himself on fire because he was so tired of it. Well this is the this is easier earned a dead and keep doing this shit. Keep breathing far. Yeah that's that's decent now One hundred thousand people remain ill in Bhopal today which just like what the what the Hell Man I honor thousand. People are still sick and they won't tell us what chemical it was. Yeah in. They're still not coming out and saying which chemical was So you see a they had gone through like all this shit like people are like. Oh you need to shut down. But they had all these different companies across the world and Dow ended up buying which I won't get into all the politics of like in like down's real purchasing them and all that but what had happened was they had shut their factory down but they never went into like clean things up then ever went into remove things. They just like all right. Close the doors. Don't come back to work so you have all these other untreated chemical. Let's all these chemical VATS in here. Electricity stays on one of which was carbon. I'M GONNA fuck it up again you'RE GONNA fuck it. Up Carbon Tetra chloride. I did the job. So one of which was Carbon Tetra. Chloride. It's not being handled properly and the area has gone through multiple floods of last like not recently but over the last few years at the time it had gone through floods and when you have an industry that's not being maintained an area that's being flooded what happens. You're groundwater gets infected. As say Shit gets fucked it infects your soil and then it's just going to continue moving down because this in the water now and it moves down it gets into the groundwater so like what the hell now Carbon Tetra chloride is. It's like an oily substance. That can be gassed. But in this instance it was liquid and it got into the groundwater In nineteen eighty nine. They had determined that the water was toxic to fish in the area. Talking literally they determine over a hundred wells in the area were deemed contaminated Twenty-one areas had water that they've been drinking over the course of five years was they thought was okay but people would drink it and they would get dizzy and they would get sick and then delivers would start failing and that's there puking everywhere now I What the hell and then water started tasting metallic and it had kind of a chemical smell. And that's when they were like Keilor's something wrong going on so five years later after they've just been exposed this entire time. The vegetables in the area were contaminated as well. Because it's in the soil cows that were eating grass where starting to get contaminated because of and so at one point. There were some women that found out. They had contaminated breast milk. And the baby's are just drinking contaminated rest milk. It blows my reading. This article is what it's like. Here's this bad thing to happen. You like all right. It's GonNa turn around and now here's some wash you're like okay just doesn't stop. Hey that's like our show. Some bad things happen with season one and then got way worse because he had to deal with more than ten episodes and season two exactly and it was weekly and it just keeps getting worse. It's all downhill from your baby. Oh Yeah Christmas was our peak. Oh Yeah Yeah. And I mean the came in and they determined that it was completely unfit for consumption. Though like do not drink your water at all and the chemicals found in the water supply had included mercury and lead and chloroform. Just drinking on your microdosing knowing chloroform. Her micros chloroform lead. You'd never get kidnapped by such tries to micro near. They tried to kidnap you with chloroform. You're like This is fine. Why is this rag? Just with tap water reminds me of my water. It's a nice scent of home. Lord The India's Supreme Court had come out and they ordered the state to supply clean water and a year goes by nothing happens so these women go to the go to the government offices like hey we need clean water. Just take a wild guess what happened. They didn't get clean water No they were beaten savagely by the police in like they go the we need clean water and the police are like bucket are beating. Shit. He's so fuck you for WANNA clean water. The best part is this is where it gets really rich is a couple of weeks later. The state comes out and they show this huge these big plans for Bhopal and it's one hundred twenty million dollar plan and that's how bad that's doable to decorate the State with fountains and badminton courts. Not to anything I know. You're like Flint Michigan freely though like it blows my mind. They're just blatantly O. D. People are dying. Whatever like fuck him like. Oh well this real. We're going to scoop up a bunch of this land a really cheap prices when everybody's dead and there's no next of kin right. We're a cell to rich people put on a badminton. She's like Oh what did you just move down here. Doesn't change anything. They're already poisoned. It's it's literally in their breast milk. Decatur are being boys an at a super young age. What do you expect as a sled poisoning? All over again They how what was his name. I I didn't write his name down but one of the guys that worked with like within the government went to the the plant and he walked in and he was like. Oh yeah everything's fine. And he even went on record saying yeah. It's not a big deal like I touched a couple of things and I feel fine like it's not an issue anymore. That the abandoned fact yeah. He went into the abandoned factory and he was like. Oh yeah look like. Here's the thing and he's like I touched it. I'm not sick. And so there was a reporter that came out and he was like saying that you just touched it saying that you've touched the tank is basically saying. Oh Yeah. I touched a cigarette but I didn't get not get lung cancer. It's just like wow. You are really special. There were a couple journalists that went to the the plant itself and they did like breathing's and stands of everything but they got so fucking sick. They had to be hospitalized like and then even in the hospital with how heavy and dense like because they weren't changing the water or anything they're still eating infected while they were in the hospital struggling to recover from all of it. And it's just like this guy's your torture a couple of things so I feel I was in there for like fifteen minutes was going to get sick. I would've gotten sick. We pulled up the truck I hopped out photo op and hop back in the truck. I feel great. Yeah I have a whole time so it two thousand nine. Epa went back in and they determined that the Carbon Tatra chloride levels were four thousand eight hundred eighty times the levels that are acceptable and water as that all. Yeah that's it now. That's that's a mild contaminate. Not a big deal now. That was ten years ago. They've determined that in the last ten years that has gotten seven times worse than it was in two thousand so it still leaking. Yeah still it's just still contaminating contaminated people still drinking it and it's even worse than it was before it's like what the Hell is wrong with you. What is blows? My mother have some great badminton courses. Great Badminton Courses and some phenomenal fountains to sit by. Just don't drink yeah. Don't drink your mouth your gun splashes on your body you're fucked however on the happy side on this with a happy note is the The Reporting Agency. That did all this. They had set up like a foundation that had raised money and the donations had gone to building A Hospital in Bhopal strictly for like all these chemical infections and everything Completely free to anybody that was going in you would show up with like symptoms and they treat you for free take care of you and then you go back home and searching and then you go back home. And he just shuttered. Oh make sure you're drinking water and taking your medication and you back home and you're right back into good oboe. Paul and sort of what Papa Mess? So what does that have to do with priests molesting children? I have no idea what you're referring to. You don't know what the Papala is. No really busy joking. I've been talking about this all day and I thought he was just shitting with no. I have no idea where like ooh will the clerics I was like what the fuck like. What are you talking about you know the paw the pope? I know the pope the Vatican can. Yeah but that's it's a bad Jew. It's bad joke that strong out over. I hate you five hours this whole time. I was like I don't know what he's talking about. But we'll get into it up. Paul nope now not gonNA. Oh my yeah such a trip dude. So no no plans on cleaning it up. No plans on. Did you find anything on how to get clean water from it? I mean you can't boil that out then it just turns airborne. I I wonder what it would take to to actually filter it out and I got to be a pretty intense. Probably the same thing would take to clean the water in Flint Michigan. Oh that one's easy just replaced the pipes. God this is probably the same. Get everybody out of there. Zoom that in this case with how dense the not dance but like how infected the ground water is just no chance of salvaging that whatsoever now and he's be burned to the ground who would just be everybody get out of Papa. But that's the can't even can't even let it return nature because all the animals are gonNA get fucked up but who will be okay to move back into a Chernobyl on a couple of years. It's no big. Oh Yeah have you seen the the booze? They made out of grain from the exclusion zone. No why why is that a thing. You don't get radiation from. It's been processed down that you're fine. You won't be irradiated but I've really want to buy some but they've only made like two bottles so far I wanNA. It's called of the bottles aren't irradiated. I think it's called something like atomic with a k. that it's it looks good. It's vodka of course it is. Of course it's Baga I if I had money I would pay a pretty penny for that. You do you. This check to shell. That's gone and that was not a lot of the shipping for her. Russian vodka. Literally be as much as you're coming into lead box. Oh God That that kind of reminds me of that town. I think it's in Ohio somewhere. Have you heard about the abandoned town in Ohio? I mean I bet there's more than one but this one specifically Ohio. Everybody wants pretty sure it's Ohio. I may be completely wrong. But basically they had a lot of coal mining. It was a coal mining town for a while. And pretty sure it was in the sixties seventies. But it could have been earlier. They some people notice like hey they. These kids have lower test scores and normal. What's going on with that? I Echo what did you expect? They don't have lead poisoning but for Ohio Standard. Oh God Kids Are Idiots. So they they're like they don't have lead poisoning. What's going on with this? They've been burning their trash for a long time. But the problem is that trash burning lit and underground coal seam. That went right under the town so the town is like literally burning from underneath singles will just open up into fire and it's a slow moving burn. Burn for like another three hundred years tire fire. Do yes it's it's an underground tire fire. I've seen some videos of people going in there with masks and stuff on but like you'll just there's a playground and from the sand smoke is rising or like just like you're on the slide and you just stop halfway through and look behind you and like everything just stuck on your back. You like MOM MOM HELP. GimMe out of the slide. Mom It's crazy. Apparently there are still people who live there. Oh Jesus old people. I don't know why you would ever do that to yourself. Well because it's like retiring Florida so much except it's better because you don't have to deal with them. You don't have to deal with the mess. The Crazy Floridians accepted you with shitty depressed Ohio. I drove through Cleveland one time. Oh it was fucking miserable dude like you're just driving through you like how would anyone be happy here? If you're from Cleveland and listening to this I'm not going to to you. Well I will. I'm sorry that you're life sucks so fucking bad my grandfather's from Cleveland. Well well. He's in that area he was for. Cleveland was till he moved out. And he's like this bullshit he he's an interesting guy. I'm going to start sharing some of his stories on some of these as a little end cap because he's got some good good stories. He's got a weird memory her. He can remember what he was wearing what they ate that day. The exact day like down to the hour will remember when in Cleveland well he worked for the FBI for a few years. He was a cost engineer. On the railroad he worked for a for the Union on the railroad. I think so Ohio Great Depression. He his uncle needed money. World War Two broke out God and he wanted to join the basically because then he wouldn't burn on his family and he would get food. Yeah like that that I hear is a lot of people's reasons back then you you get food and you can send your money home to your family and your good like you know at the time. That's a good deal seriously. So he unfortunately he was like six foot five and one hundred twenty pounds stuck out like a fucking sore thumb. Well he he couldn't like he couldn't pass the weight For to join the military so what he did was he went down to like the market where there were some food stalls and things like that and he found where. I think I had tried to remember. It's a little foggy but I think a fruit seller had thrown away. Some like Old Bananas. Oh God but if you if you get caught from the fruit stealing the old banana she's like no you buy that for me. If you're willing to buy that need to pay major willing to eat it you buy it. So he something to the fact that he got caught stealing these crappy old bananas and the Cops Chased Him and this was in Cincinnati at the time okay. Cincinnati I. Guess isn't so bad. It was during the time. So they Yeah he he ran from the cops successfully avoided them. Went to a city fountain. Eight an entire Bushel of bananas in every bite he would take a drink from the public fountain and then he until he was sick and then he went and weighed in join the military. Got US beans for the evening unrelated to the rest of this show. My I believe my Grandpa lied about his age by one year so that he could join the airforce. Because it wouldn't let you join unless you were eighteen. And he was seventeen at the time and he was like. Yeah I WANNA go shoot some Nazis Nazis some Nazis so. He told him he was eighteen. They let him in and yeah he would fly around shutdown bridges and shit. He had some good stories. We can do an episode talking about family stuff. My great-grandfather was involved and he was a cook in the in the military. She says he was in Iceland the health they had POW camps in Iceland. Is this World War One World War Two two so they he So to give a little bit of background they would do they would put. Pow camps near very important like laboratories or munitions factories or of storage or things because then the enemy wouldn't bomb their own. Pow Camp Yeah. So he would. He was deployed at in this Icelandic place which they actually did a lot of research for the Manhattan Project at that camp. He was completely uninvolved. But it's cool that he was like shown here by so he says he wasn't involved Aso he says well he was the Schiff and Apparently they were like retreating. At one point from their camp they were moving the camps to another location and they were running because people like the the area was being bombed she says but it was before he got done with breakfast so he was making a biscuit on the back of a truck and people would run up and just throw them off the skillet throwing biscuits. Yeah as they're retreating. Jesus what a trip. It's yeah there's there's some weird ones we'll have to talk about this more. Yeah we'll we'll do an episode on. So yeah I talk about doing an episode. We'll never know. Never we'll just keep talking about it but Yeah I guess all these things are related because they all involve a manmade health scape. Yes Cincinnati.

Trade Rumor Rankings: Which NBA Players Are Surfacing in Trade Rumors (Ep. 161)

"Welcomes Hoop site. podcast my name is Alex Kennedy joining me today. NBA Writer for CBS Sports. You can follow him. I'm on twitter at Dennis Chambers underscore. My guest is my former colleague. Dennis Chambers Denison argue once going on. Thanks for having me on buddy. Thanks for joining me all right. So you're based in Philadelphia. Alvia I WANNA talk about your Philadelphia. Seventy sixers for a minute. They are eleven and five after winning. Four straight games including two huge wins over the spurs and the heat. They currently only had the fifth best record in the Eastern Conference. They're all in on this core. They owed the most guaranteed money of any team in the NBA going forward. What do you make of the sectors play so far in and do you think this team has what it takes to win at all? I think currently constructed with the starting five. They haven't played their absolutely a team. That could be a contender for the championship at the at the end of the season. Obviously that's their goal. And what you want to accomplish in of course putting this together and like you said paying everybody all the money they have between Tobias Harris contract signing Al Horford. You know Joel embiid contract that. He's under Ben. Simmons Max contract extension. They're obviously all in on this core and what they expect us to to turn championships out of it. And you mentioned the two wins Yoga over the course of the weekend. Friday and more specifically Saturday against Jimmy Butler the Miami Heat Jimmy Butler obviously returning to Philadelphia where he played for most of last season Seeing that type of I guess performance in and how the starters one through five GonNa have the opportunity to play against one of the better teams in the east as we. You know we've seen the heat able to do. They're saying over the course of the first month month and a half of the season Watching that defensive performance especially is kind of where the sixers are going to be able to hang their hat over the course of the season. And that's how that that lineup is constructed to Ghana wreak havoc on teams defensively. And they really just gave gave Miami fits all night. Jimmy Butler was clearly not himself. Benson's as his primary defender a Condo was able to take him out of his game early on. And you watch she. No guys like Josh Richardson. Who had his clearly his best game as a sixer thus far no surprise going up against the team that traded him away in favor of Jimmy Butler so to be able to see that performance especially after a rocky start from this season I think it was super encouraging for the sixers. Not only for themselves of course their fan base but you know after a game and her performance like that. I think the front office has to be feeling really good about the decisions they made over the course of the summer. Yeah that was an impressive win and I wanna ask you about Jimmy Butler his comments. After the game game he talked to reporters and said he's talking about why he left the sixers new said. Obviously something happened. We're not going to say what it was. We're not going to go into detail. We can't keep living thing on that they can't but I'm happy basically when you know praising his current teammates in Miami in that situation but you know you were around this team a lot. Obviously do you have an idea of what he's he's talking about or what he's referring to. I know there's been talk of chemistry issues and you know. There are some reports last year about him butting heads with Brett Brown and you know different teammates but you kind of have an idea of what went wrong with this core last year. Yes so I think I mean in you you kind of set yourself. There were reports of. I wouldn't necessarily say butting heads more so like we know Jimmy Butler. We know who he is. Now you know after all the time that he's been in the NBA in his stops in Chicago and Minnesota and obviously Philadelphia. There's a common theme that he's outspoken and when he feels like something isn't going the way the best way that it possibly can he's GonNa say something and you know there's a lot of players don't do that some guys will just you know either. Keep your mouth shut or or say things you know maybe in a different fashion that they shouldn't like to Jimmy's credit. He comes out and says how he feels so that might rub some the people the wrong way and I think you know. He being that type of vocal leader so to speak Maybe rubbed some people on on on the team the wrong way and it's hard to speculate exactly what he was talking about and I think you know he gave obviously professional answer saying that he's not going to dwell on it and he praises current teammates and Brown was asked before the game on Saturday. You know about Jimmy Butler and he more so did the same thing as any coach would like you're not really going to dive diving on a player. That's no longer on your team. Now have a current team you now current goals. It's not you're not there to dwell on the past more or less which is exactly what Jimmy said I think for my personal take. It would probably especially if the way that you look at the way the teams constructed it's built around two pillars. It's built around Joel Joel embiid. And then Simmons and the franchise in the Front Office is doing the best they can to run the ship through those two. We've heard the comments Jimmy Butler in Joel. EMBIID are on record. Numerous Times talking about how close they are boys. They text all the time you know they got along very well when Jimmy was in Philadelphia. But what we don't hear I think the silence on it is probably you know what's most deafening about it. All is the lack of like friendship. Friendship phrase that Jimmy Butler ever said about Ben Simmons we correct me. If you've ever heard anything numb but I you know exactly like I've never heard him talk about each other as glowingly. Joe Knew Joel and Jimmy do so it like I said it's hard to speculate but if you really kind of read the writing. That's on the wall I. I wouldn't be surprised if Ben Simmons Jimmy Butler maybe they didn't get along and that was One of the deciding factors in terms of Jimmy deciding that you know he wanted to move on to Miami Johny but even so you. I'm sure you can corroborate this. Jimmy Butler is always had an affinity for planning in Miami. He's always had an affinity for the Miami Heat. dwayne wade aid that franchise. This wasn't the first time that he tried to get himself to their so when the opportunity presented itself. I'm sure you know that's something that he. He found very very appealing and as we see. That's the way that it went down. Yeah and the on the court to talk about this before but you know Jimmy obviously our guys that want the ball in their hands in you know I did. I did a piece where I covered the first twenty four hours. I forty eight hours with Butler. On the sixers they happen to be in Orlando so I went to their shoot around and talked all different guys and went to the game that tonight and whenever even even right after they made that trade embiid was super excited and saying we needed someone that could create their shy and he has perfect skill. Set for us and Ben. It was very quiet and didn't really say much so that kind of set out to me as well You know they obviously having Jimmy there in creating zone shot and writing things through him. took the ball away from Ben so maybe that was part of its you even. If it wasn't a friendship thing maybe it was just a usage thing that could be possible. Yeah and I mean you look at it from a money standpoint point like they obviously would have would have had to pay Jimmy Butler. They still decided to pay Al Horford but when they decided to give Ben Simmons that contract attract extension. Like you're not GONNA pay one hundred seventy one million dollars to somebody who wants you know playoff time comes. He gets relegated to a dunker spot. And that's you know very much how Brett Brown was using him in crunch time situations in the playoffs last year because he would put the ball on Jimmy's hands. And that's you know that shows more more so what Ben still has to work on his game I think you know the entire world the entire. Mba Community is very aware that he can you know not that he can't shoot although he really can't but he's very in related to even do so let it fly so in those situations where the game slows down in. The court tightens up. Ben's best ability is being athletic and those half court sets so so he's getting placed under the basket while the rest of the offense operates around him in hopes of getting a put back where law or something around the rim. And for somebody. Ben Simmons you know stature and skillset skill level. And you know all the things that come along with it being relegated to that type of position. I'm sure probably made him mm feel uneasy in in certain aspects. Yeah I also. I'm I'm doing a I want to ask you a little bit about the tanking the habit in Philly and kind of what it's led to. I'm doing a long form. That comes out and hoops hype. Pretty soon here where I interviewed him beat writers in heat. POMPEII was one of them that I interviewed. And we kinda talked about this tanking years a bit and I'm interested. You know you look at this team how they were Burland Benz's image and Joel embiid eagerly didn't hit on all of those top draft picks. They were able to get two stars out of it. They were able to find some role players like Robert Covington. TD TD McConnell but by basically using those end of the roster spots as proud spots and just bringing a different guys and getting different looks guys you know. Do you think that that plan has been validated dated. First of all you know in. What's the response and fairly to those taking years? Fancy like it's worth it and the Sam he get the credit he deserved you. Think and also do you think we're GONNA see other teams try to do this. I think first of all I think it totally the entire tanking situation is is completely valid. And I've always been You know somebody buddy that was on the side and a of tanking and very much a fan of it because in the NBA. You know we know we've seen over the course of Especially the last couple of years but the course NBA NBA history as well. The the best way to win championships is to have superstar players. Can you cannot win an NBA. Title without at least two into two star players that can build out a roster around and the sixers didn't have that after you know Alan Iverson. They had good role players. That good you know. I wouldn't even call Oldham Stars but drew holidays the Andrea Darlas. That team that that lost a on the eastern conference semifinals in like two thousand eleven about a year one season removed from when they kind of started their tank when they traded drew holiday on draft night in two thousand thirteen and kind of Sam hinkie started to get the ball rolling on the whole process. tanking situation. I mean they went from you. Know thirty four wins in two thousand twelve and then they were in the teams the nineteen eight teens jeans and that two thousand fifteen season they won ten games and it landed in the first overall. Pick to get Ben Simmons and now you have Ben Simmons Joel Embiid to fruits of the process to superstar players and obviously they both have their flaws as every player in the NBA does but they're two of the best foundational pieces that you can find. Did the League and you know considering how young they are and being you know locked down under contract for multiple seasons To be able to have that foundation in as a starting point to you know in your goal of winning a championship I think completely one hundred percent validates what the process was supposed to represent what it meant. And when you really they look at it you you had you know. Three Four Seasons three seasons in particular of just absolute atrocious basketball. where it's like night in and night out? They're hard hard to watch. And then you get you know m beads first year that that he got the play after missing two seasons You know with navicular bone surgery but but I think what like I mentioned to be able to pull those out of your drafting whether they didn't hit on Julia Ghafoor Nerlens Noel. Or what have have you To be able to get those two guys validates everything Entirely for the process. And I think that a lot of people in Philadelphia are you would agree with that and they like you can see on twitter and kind of how crazy the fan bases for the sixers. Everybody is at least for my aspect like everybody was all in on the process. Because they've recognized. You know what was going to be able to come from it so of course you'll have those people who are always going to be contrarian or disagree with any method without it but now that's professional national sports and that's professional sports fandom but I think the majority of the people in Philadelphia. We're very much processed trustor's they like to say yeah. It's hard to doubt at this point. I mean when you have two stars that come out of it you know had they missed on all their picks and yeah you know the you could really doubt it but the idea was right at that point in time Dan the NBA really incentivize. That right and it was a loophole that basically Anki and his staff found and they made the most of it by drafting these guys. I don't necessarily think we'll see it again because the NBA's trying very hard to close that loophole. They're trying to get rid of tank era really making it harder for teams in the top to get those top star players get a top picks. You're seeing I think it was miserable for the NBA. The League office was so frustrated because basically there was a team that was openly taking for several years and that hurts. TV ratings. And you know you do have fans in the moment that are upset about out that so I think the NBA's trying to dodge. But I love it. I mean I think Sam Hinkie had the right idea worked out perfectly and he got he was able to do it before the NBA. Close that loop also perhaps the him in that staff. I think made a ton of sense. Yeah absolutely I mean you hit the nail on the head like he identified a situation where he could take advantage of the current system that was in replace. He totally did I mean. That's you know. That's what saying he was says. It's time as a general manager like he found different calculations to everything and and you know tried his best to exploit the rules that were currently in place to his team's benefit and he did that and he did it effectively and you know I think that in its own right kind of rub people the wrong way around the league and people that had to deal with him and you know agents and other executives Will probably tell you that. He wasn't the best to deal with because he probably he wasn't. He had his eye on. You know one particular prize in terms of being able to run this system that he wanted to run and he wanted to do that. You know in any way that he could but I mean you brought up. TJ McConnell and Robert Covington. It's like those two guys you know. They're not superstar players. They weren't drafted. You know with the picks that Sam Hinkie was trying to cut it in terms of you know those first First second third overall picks the reason for essentially losing on purpose. But these guys are now turned into you know respectable MBA players. Robert COVINGTON. COVINGTON is one of the best wing defenders in the NBA. And you know I in my opinion on a championship team a perfect complementary role player And those guys got. They're shot because this team decided that they wanted to more or less lose on purpose and they needed to just fill out roster spots those guys you know the the cream rises the crop. They says it has to say. And it's now more credit to Sam Hinkie in a way that that he was able to identify that and be able to h exploited as you said in like you said. I don't think teams are going to try that as drastically as that anymore because the won't allow it with the way that they changed draft odds but in the moment he absolutely did what was necessary for the sixers and I think it paid off entirely for sure one thing to do on his podcast. We're GONNA switch things up a little bit here we like to do trade rumor rankings. And what we do is on hoops hype. We have the rumors page and we have tons of different rumors on their. You know coaches on the hot seat trade rumors for agency agency rumors. You name it. They're all on that rumors page. Make sure your tech it out but one thing we do is we go through a review weeks and find. The players who've been mentioned the most intrigued rumors on our rumors page. So so today. We're GONNA talk about players that have come up in rumors recently in recent weeks and discuss their situation what the future could hold for them. They've been you know it's still early. Obviously Trade uh-huh deadline isn't till February but their team this year that are contending and looking to really go deep in the playoffs. So I think you're GONNA see a lot of trades when you don't have a Juggernaut like the warriors here's I think a lot of teams feel like they have a shot and it's going to be an active trade deadline so let's go through the players that have been mentioned. The most recently the first player is bogged on mcdonagh Vich in Sacramento Bogdanovich has an interesting situation. He turned down the kings extension offer and there have been some rumblings that he's upset with his role in Sacramento Demento. He's a restricted free agent. offseason but some executives feel that he could become available prior to the trade deadline in February Sean Denny recently reported that the kings aren't are entertaining. Trade talks just yet but that there are a lot of teams around the league that are monitoring this situation basically when I talked to executives about Sacramento. They say they're not sure if the kings are car buyers or sellers. They're a team. That's desperate to make the playoffs. This year they really WanNa make the postseason. But they're unsure kind of weather team stands at this point. It's still super early. Uh so I it really depends on whether or not the playoffs are realistic. Goal for this team. One thing that avenue also said is that the New York Knicks are one of the teams are expected to be interested and Bogdanovich if he does become become available but again there are teams that would show interest in him. You know he's Kinda shot down. No not really shot down. But he hasn't been really will be willing to talk about whether or not he's upset with his role or the playing time this coming in Sacramento it does seem like he wants the ball more in a bigger role elsewhere but obviously restrict free agency. There's Glenn so much you can do but I do think he would welcome a trade if it comes down to it. Do you think we could see him. Get traded and you know I feel like there'd be a lot of interest firm if you did it becomes available. I completely agree with you. And then there's a there's a lot to like about his game no obviously everybody knows that he can shoot and you can score. The ball shoots like a forty four percent clip From beyond the ARC. which you know we know? Excuse me how how valuable. Yeah three point shooting is in today's NBA. But he's also you know he shows. The ability flashes didn't really able to create for his teammates as well averaging five six game I think you know like you mentioned. It's it's GonNa work. We're we're what a month and a half into the season they're six and eight Sacramento is as it were currently stand like. They're right on the cusp of being able to make the playoffs. I think you'll obviously losing buddy. He'll or nobody healed up the Fox to injury obviously getting him back and getting the team healthy and finding more chemistry between everybody nobody. I wouldn't be shocked if at you know. We come down to the end of it at April under right there squarely in the playoff picture because they have talent I'm I don't necessarily. I think that their championship contenders by any means. But they certainly have the talent. If all you know everything's clicking on all cylinders to make the playoffs and maybe disrupt somebody in the first round or kind of see where they stand once. They're kind of in the in the postseason but I decided we we have to wait for the season to kind of unfold and see where that all is. If they decide that you know they stumble or they suffer more injuries. Or what. What have you and they want to sell? you're not gonNA trade The Iron Fox. You probably not gonNA trade. But he'll you probably not you're not gonNA trade a Marvin Bagley like the person on their team. That would be able to bring them back. The most value would absolutely be bugged on which is situation in a bigger role in a starting role alongside somebody like an RJ Barrett in New York. I think that that would be a good fit especially with how you know. As I mentioned that Bogdanovich can stretch edge the floor in kind of act as a secondary creator. I really liked that fit. Actually yeah for him in New York especially along a you know. Rj and they have the the front court the pieces that we that we all know about it. They went there there signing spree of power forwards this summer But I think somebody like him especially in New York being able to have that a bigger role act as a secondary creator Stretch the floor playing alongside RJ You know if he's unhappy in Sacramento. Ah That's that's a great place for him to go. People will probably say like. Oh it's the knicks and make their jokes about about how bad either the team is or the organization and that's a whole nother conversation. All another can of worms but from an on the court standpoint. I think that'd be a great fit and quite honestly if they decide that they want to move on from him. I don't see why he couldn't Garner a first round pick and you know in the trade market. Yeah he's Kinda guy where he can fit it on so many teams because he the great fit in today's NBA. And you just plug him in and get three point shooting in facilitating tasting you. See it's really easy to imagine more different teams. and He's twenty seven years old just turned twenty seven so he's not super old. I think a lot of teams that are look into now obviously want to bring him in and teams. That are just right on the cusp. Could be interested as well. So yeah I mean I think you know there could be a bidding war for him and that's where you could see some interesting assets assets get thrown out there by teams that are trying to bring him in so he's definitely someone to keep an eye. On as February gets closer Kevin. Love is next on our list. After the cavaliers lost lost Lebron James and Kyrie Irving they obviously gave love a four year. One hundred twenty million dollar extension. It was kind of shocking at a time because they were rebuilding and love is obviously in his prime at thirty thirty one years old. Maybe a little bit after his prime. Now there's been a lot of speculation. That Cleveland Cook Trade him at some point because they're on very different trajectories obviously love and the team team love recently talked to Los Angeles Times about the trade rumors eventually said he's used to the trade talks in Then so be it. But he's going to stay committed to Cleveland and the organization Shen for as long as they want to keep him. Say It's possible that some teams will want to avoid this contract. That's something that bobby marks talked about. Whenever I had him on the podcast he basically said the thought of paying twenty nine million dollars to thirty four year old Kevin Love May scare some for novices away and I can totally see that too? Loves game should age better than some players players given his skill set. But it's hard to imagine this becoming a bad contract at some point in the future especially if injuries limiting him. I mean we saw him Miss Twenty two games last season. He's in so you know. Why do you think he could obviously help a contender right now? That contract is a bit scary for some teams. Do you think we could see Kevin love get traded or do you think the ones keeping in Cleveland. And that's why they gave him this extension. I mean I from a basketball standpoint. And what Cleveland is trying to accomplish with rebuilding owning their team in the Post Lebron era. I can't understand. I didn't understand it at the time. I still can't understand it a while you would sign that contract. Maybe they're you know they were. They wanted to hold onto some point of relevance. And that's what they could get out of having Kevin Love. There's at least add a name and a top thirty player in the NBA on their roster which which sells tickets sell tickets. I keep people invested a little bit like have one of the faces of the championship team. So they're like I guess from a business standpoint. I can understand understand that but you know to bobby marches point in in what you just reiterated like who what front office in the League especially in the way that you know teams Iran like now in from analytical thinking standpoint. WHO's GONNA WANNA pay? Kevin love at thirty four years old. Twenty nine million dollars. I can't I can't reach. I wouldn't be able to even reach into a hat names and pull one out and look at them and try to make a case for wanting to pay him at thirty four that contract and that's not to say that Kevin Love Love is a bad basketball player because he's having a great year you know after coming back from injury You know his he. He's averaging his most amount of rebounds obviously that you know that he's he's had in since he was in Minnesota because he's been able to kind of be the focal point of everything and get back to his game. That benefited him. So much pre playing alongside Lebron on So he's obviously still very talented and can contribute to a winning team. Like you said right now but I just don't know what team would look at that recognize that they have to give up some Atlit. They're not just going to move on from him for free. Of course it probably won't be a hall That we would see with other players players of his name or caliber because of his contract. That's going to be attached to it but you still have to give something up to get Kevin love back. They're not just going to give him to to you for free and you know look at that contract and break it down And understand that you have to pay in that money you for now. Four Seasons That just seems like a hard bill to swallow to me so I mean it's very possible that he can still get traded. Especially you know. I don't know maybe we get situation in halfway through the year like Houston who they're suffering from spacing issues or whatever it might be and they wanNA bring a stretch four and and kind of continue their three point barrage that they are like. Maybe he's a team that fits and Darryl Morton always figure out the cap numbers because he's literally a wizard. So maybe maybe that's a team that you know you could convince me to at had a midseason move. If they decided they wanted to really shake things up yeah fit in there. It would have to be a team that is all right now is willing to look past those later years the contract just Roy gathering this season and I would argue Cleveland. Say they need to try trade him now because pretty soon that could be untreatable contract so they almost have to mow while they can well. Yeah it is hard to kind of find Suitors for him just because of his contract situation You mentioned Houston. Let's go to the next player because he is Houston Rockets player Clink Capella. His name is popped up in trade eight rumors since last summer really and most recently a few weeks ago Brian I S. Pin brought up the fact Capello was shop early in the off season last year. Or last last off-season. Excuse me but at the rockets decided to hold onto him. When they landed Russell Westbrook they basically decided to go all in on this season and keep the core together so they did not move cappella even though they had a number of different trade conversation involving him Daryl Morey is someone that loves to make midseason changes so winward said if the raucous decide to mix things up before before the deadline Capella could become available once again to pell us three years remaining on his contract beyond this season so a team that deals for him would get the twenty five year old center they they have wonder contract through twenty twenty three twenty four so I could see why not WanNa do this. But if you're the rockets would you be willing to move on from Capella. I think things you have to go very badly for him to get moved. Yeah saint similar to what I just mentioned with Kevin Love and if they decided to maybe bring somebody like him and it would have to be because we we get to February and the you know Russ in James Thing is not working out and they're clearly not you know the caliber of team that they expected to be like you said down more is always looking to shake things up as we've seen you know countless times he'll do that with no accord anything else. I could see them convincing themselves that it would be the best idea to get rid of Capella for you. Know Kevin love or somebody else that can help them space a floor and to a scoring punch But for my perspective even what you just said like. He's on a reasonable contract. Eighteen million dollars years really not you know all that much in today's NBA on a yearly basis especially with some of the other contracts. The different players around the league are making an eye for my personal sampling. I think he serves a great purpose for this team. I mean obviously he cannot shoot. We all know that issues. You know forty seven percent from the line line. He does not shoot threes. But that's not what he needs to do Even in an era where big men you know they are Karl. Anthony Towns Joel Embiid kristaps porzingis. Housing is all these guys can step out and make shots. I think Clink Cappella serves the purpose of being that rim runner Being able to set effective screens and protect the rim and play lockdown defense in the middle of a team that spreads itself no as far out as it possibly can. I think he serves a very you know unique in important purpose for this team especially centered around James Harden and Russell Westbrook so you know like we mentioned it would literally have to go downhill. Oh fast and be on the edge of about as bad as they could you know had a manager did at the trade deadline for the move a young talented center that I think you fills a a very necessary need for that. Yeah I think they value him more than other teams do also because of the huge role plays for them so they're asking price are probably very high and it just seemed like that was a deal that made probably more sense before they were able to get Russell Westbrook so it's hard to imagine it happening now. The next player on our list is the Ngelo Russell. When the warriors I I acquired him from the Brooklyn Nets in the Kevin Durant sign and trade? There was obviously a lot of talk. About how the only added him to trade him at a later date. That was speculation. At least I think they intended you to play Steph curry and Russell together this season with Klay Thompson out. Obviously but now with all the injuries they've had and you know basically their season being decimated by injuries they. You don't even have curry now. So it's the the question is will go and state one hold onto Russell next year when Curry Thompson are healthy and unless they wanna play him off the a bench or at the three. It's really hard to imagine them keeping him long term. You know I think when you lose some like rant you obviously want to get something back for him rather than lose awesome for nothing so I think that's why they wanted Russell in this in that deal. I think he's a bright future. Obviously he was obviously all star last year at twenty two years old so I do think the warriors as with want significant pieces back for him if they do trade him but he someone that is making a lot of money to. He's making twenty eight point. Six million next season the following seasons you'll be making thirty million and then thirty one point three million so let's say the warriors do keep all three of these guys in twenty twenty one twenty two. They'll Bill O.. One hundred fourteen million dollars to Curry Thompson and Russell. So that's obviously a ton of money to pay back court. When there are obviously other position Dak they would need to fill now? The reason he has popped up in our trade. Rumors is because Brian Win. VSBN reported that the warriors could get back. I guess he said it's not unreasonable. To think the warriors could get another first round pick plus equality role player for Russell especially if the warriors are able to construct deal where they take back salary sorry so his name has popped back up. It's not just the summer speculation that we're talking about here. It's rich from three weeks ago. Brian saying that they could get back possibly equality role player plus the the first round pick. So we'll see if he someone that gets traded before this deadline or if they decide to hold onto him awake. You're deadlines but he is someone that I feel baffert kid because his name's going to be key popping up a trade rumors for the next several seasons if he does get moved this summer or this year. Yeah Yeah I think it's I think you just put it really well. I'm starting to feel bad for him. Because he he had a rough start in L. A.. He gets moved to Brooklyn and he finds his role he didn't really. He really was able to to Flourish Rish under that coaching staff and kind of come into his own and like you said he made an all star team and he was really starting to fulfill everything that you know. He looked coming out of college. As that. You know scoring point guard that can also still effectively run and set up his teammates. And you know run an offense and y'all he gets now moved to Golden State. which would always you know in the past like four or five years? Sounds great idea. Like oh man. I'm going to golden state him and he gets. It compete for a championship. Except he's their two year whereafter Kevin Durant leaves and the two star guards get injured. And it's you know no nothing even close to the team that they have been It's all you know. I really feel I feel for him in that sense but you made a comment whether it was last week or the week before where he mentioned that he was he had the opportunity to go. Oh to Minnesota and chose to go to golden state. Yeah he's off on it and he said that he had to deal with the weather in New York so he couldn't even imagine going winter in Minnesota us. Oh he did he did sign up for this. Yeah so I mean like from that perspective it makes you makes you understand a little more. Like I guess that he wasn't just held hostage got sent there against his will after having to deal with all the situation in L. A.. And then having you know Brooklyn take him in. Grow him him. And then choose Kevin Durant inquiry which noggin understand why they would make that decision But I think like I think Brian Windward said it's completely accurate. Like I don't see the any scenario where you would trade him and not be able to get back at least a first round pick and a and a solid player in the deal. You mentioned he's making a lot of money. Of course I mean his last service contract and twenty twenty two twenty twenty three will be over thirty one million dollars but at the same time like he's only twenty six years old so these last two seasons were watching Dangelo. Russell really really come into his own and be that you know super effective scoring guard. And you're walking bucket. You can go out there and get you a basket whenever you need at any point in the game. And he's shown to be able to you know step up in those clutch big moments And towards the end of this contract is current contract kind of I mean for all intents and purposes be the entering his physical prime so you would assume that you know his basketball game will continue to grow. I certainly don't think he reaches reached his ceiling as a player So I don't I think it would come down down to golden state having to decide which two of the three of those dogs that they're gonNA WANNA keep and I don't see a scenario where they decide that de Ngelo. Russell is one of the three on like you said. I really don't think that they can play them all together. And in the same respect are you really gonNA pay Diangelo Russel thirty million dollars to come off off the bench. Even if it is in like this super size six-man roll like that just doesn't necessarily make sense either So I think it would probably be in their best interest to move along from cannon and find a suitor who can send them back picks and I I know he shows not to go to Minnesota but I really think that you know especially with the friendship him. mm-hmm and Karl Anthony towns. Have I feel like that would be a great fit especially for those two in particular. I wondering we've seen you. I wonder if you told him that. The words are GONNA lose fourteen of their first. Seventeen Games uh-huh if he makes sense same decision. Yeah I think he'd be. Maybe John Up to you know go by Canada goose jacket or something as opposed to as opposed to picking the weather right. But I mean you you know you can't tell those things in the future so you just gotTa ride with decision that you make. But I don't know I. It seemed that Minnesota was super. We're interested in him and bringing him in like I said you know we all know the relationship that him and cat have. I wouldn't be surprised if he does get moved. If if that avenue is reopened because yes you would assume that if he's going to get traded in a tell him that he's GonNa get traded like he's GonNa want to have some level of input in that situation especially with now now that being his fourth team in such young career So I wouldn't be surprised if he eventually did wind up in Minnesota. Yeah I mean I think he has a bright future like you said he's twenty three. It'll be twenty six to end this contracts with will just be entering. Its prime. I think he's going to be a name. That pops up a lot in these trader marine. But I hope you can either stand golden state and blossom awesome air or land somewhere where they can just develop him and you know really have him realize its full potential the guy on our list we have two more. We have won honorable mention. So the fifth guy is Stephen Adams for the Oklahoma City thunder now the thunder of Italian teams. That Stephen Adams as part of their future at least for now but executives around the NBA have been speculating thing that he could be available. They've been saying since last summer at one point. The Atlanta Hawks were being linked to Adams he the main reason why because obviously the thunder are rebuilding. They've already traded off a number of pieces. There's four draft picks. They're hoarding drafts. Of this point and Steven Adams is an older piece then some of their younger guys so the thought is that maybe they would look to move on from him and and get some more graphics graphics and young players He has two years remaining on his contract. He's getting paid. Twenty five point eight million and then twenty seven point five million. Next year the large salary may be somewhat difficult difficult to imagine a trade. But I think it's easy to imagine the thunder dealing atoms for picks and young is. This infamy said for Dental Ari. WHO's on an expiring contract? He likely doesn't resigned over the summer. So they'll probably want to get something for him Dennis Schreuder is another veteran. That's been mentioned And then Chris Paul E. Someone that we heard a lot about mainly over the off off-season now he's Kinda bought in and there has been much talk popping up but I think the main reason why he hasn't been traded. Yeah thirty eight point five million dollar contracts. That's extremely really tough to move. Even if a team wants to bring Chris Paul I that salary it becomes very difficult but I think we could have had this entire list thunder players because of how serious as an active trade talks. So we'll see what happens with them before February. But I would not be surprised Steve now gets move. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised at either. You know it's I can understand then why they would wanna give off the vibe no to other teams and especially their fan base. Why they wouldn't WANNA move? Stephen Adams especially like all of the turmoil had Oklahoma. Oklahoma City has gone through in terms of you know having James Harden Russell Westbrook Kevin Durant all in the same roster getting to the NBA finals and never returning and then one by one. You know watching those guys go to other teams and especially obviously Kevin Durant choosing to leave then winning you know what he won in Golden State. Yeah I I got under. Stephen Adams represents the Oklahoma City thunder better than everybody else. You know on on the team right now because he was a part of that core and you know he's he's the they drafted him. He's only played for Oklahoma City like he means more to that small market fan base right now essentially then you know even what he could put out matured. Maybe what he can return trade not necessarily surly sure how much they can get in return for him especially with that contract in the way that he would have to go. You know so much like Lynn Cappella. He would have to go to team. You know like the Atlanta Hawks in terms of having somebody like trae young that can effectively run pick and rolls and they have other players players on the court that can shoot because he cannot do that at all so He would have to go to a team that can slide him in and he can be used in his most effective You know way on the core in terms of being the big bruiser defending center that's starting to fade out in the NBA. And in even run down the list of the roster in terms of you know who's GonNa get moved absolute. I don't there'd be no reason for them to keep y'all Nari in any capacity because he's on an expiring deal. He's I would be shocked if he resigned there. I'm sure were they already recognize that understand it. So he's probably somebody that will get moved at the trade deadline and you mentioned Chris Paul Short teams. I'm sure the Lakers would love to have have crispell right now but like how do you find a way to move that thirty eight million dollars like it's such a roadblock we heard Miami do but Miami I mean same thing yeah yeah right. I'm sure that they would love to have had to jump through hoops to get Jimmy Butler. So you know they. They don't even have they. Don't have the money for that But I I don't see I. I mean I saw when he got traded to Oklahoma City that there was no way that he was ever GonNa play a game for that team. I thought they would just find a way to flip him before the season. You know even too much money for a buyout. That's what makes it difficult. Yeah exactly how. How do you even negotiate? That is a big check to write so much money. And you know back when the the supermax and everything you you know got got put into the sea like Chris. Paul will was one of the leading local Boko Voices in terms of being able to like give players this power to be able to sign these contracts and essentially at the end of his career when all he probably wants to do is compete for a championship. It's the biggest thing standing in his way of completing completing that goal. Because now you know he got stuck in his trade situation and he's on a rebuilding team in a small market in Oklahoma City Where you know? Oh he has. How many years left of you know really good Chris Paul Basketball and he's spending one of them You know on a on a rebuilding team Yeah so showing me. We could have done a whole segment city thunder. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw mobile You know these players moved by the trade deadline. Yeah Sam Presi. He knows what he's doing. He's is trying to do a Philadelphia. Seventy sixers rebuild where they just graphics so we'll see we'll see ours with under. The final player is another player that stuck in a small market losing losing team and probably wants to be on the Lakers. It's Andre Dollar for people who haven't followed along with this story. Not only iggy not playing for the grizzlies. He's he's been away from the team all season Recently I saw some people posting videos on twitter where he was spotted in Los Angeles. So he's working out on his own and basically waiting for a trade. They'd likely to a contender that three teams that keep being mentioned are the Lakers clippers and the rockets. They're all teams at him for his defense and his versatility he's been Someone that's been talked about since the off season and basically the latest the reason he's popping up in our trade rumor section is age roads now Sqi. Some others recently reported that as much much is teams want the grizzlies to buy him out there. Basically holding out and trying to get something back in return they want at least a draft pick. Maybe a second round pick they want something back for Gonzala they're telling teams that they're prepared to keep Gudauta and not trade him they're going to they're going to buy 'em out or I'm sorry they will trade him not him out but I mean what else are they supposed to. It's Kinda like you were saying with Stephen Adams you want other teams to believe. Oh Yeah we're GONNA hold onto this guy we know we're not going to buy them out because you don't want to call your bluff and not give you any kind of asset and return They obviously want to get something back for him. It's possible that you know we see these teams calm emphasis block in wait to see if they actually buy out. And just don't trade for him but it's also possible that one of these teams just this budge in meet the Grizzlies asking price especially one of these teams. You know maybe outside of these three or the rockets even one of these teams. That may not feel super confident about her. Chances of Cyangugu Dolla- you know if you're the rockets or another contender and you're worried that he's going to go to the Lakers or the clippers once he weren't bought out let's say after the deadline maybe US decide the trade for him before the deadline and bring him in now. I think someone that could still a contender. But he just stuck in Memphis right now and I don't believe Memphis that they wouldn't buy Albert. I'm curious to see if some team just traits room just to meet their asking price and get him and rather than play the game because that can be all. That could be difficult. Yeah Yeah I mean if it's if is asking prices that's the thing that we don't know right now like if there's a second round pick if it's two to whatever it is it's it's not like a game changer. In terms of what your trading to get the dollar who want a championship team. Like the clippers. The Lakers the rockets teams. You know that caliber like he's going to serve a super important purpose. Especially you know once wants playoff. Time comes The price I it's not about trading you know what that is for him but if you're a team like the Lakers and you're already super short on on assets as it is if you believe that if he gets set free like he's GonNa come sign with Lebron and his buddies in L. A.. Then like why would you anything for it and from Memphis you know point of view like you said like of course you're going to have the poker face and tell them like not. We're not going to outlive. You have to give us something for him. That would make sense from Houston's perspective perspective or maybe the clippers like if they're getting indication that that he wants to play for the Lakers in La maybe you just bite the bullet and trade off whatever it is you have to trade off the get him in the door because you know you would lose him for whatever it is that he would sign up for with the Lakers than that would make sense in that capacity as well but I don't really expect the situation to get resolved before you know right right up to the deadline if I'm one of those three teams at least from from the perspective of bringing him in like you said he's working on his own Memphis is giving them the okay to be away from the team. So He's I'm sure keeping you know care of his body the best way that he possibly can and staying in game shape much Carmelo did before he returned to Portland East thirty five years old. He's played a ton of games. He's been deep into the playoffs. Helps you know with the Golden State Warriors through their entire run. You know bringing him in F- in February like right at the trade deadline not getting him on the court before that letting his legs be freshest possible for a playoff runs actually for a team. That's going to need to rely on him like the three that we just mentioned or somebody else in that caliber of championship team if they decide to make the trade rage warmer. That's it makes all the sense in the world for me to let this drag out as far as possible so that you can have him as fresh as possible at thirty five years old boy. I need him the most. Yeah now. It's a great point. Yeah I could see that happening for sure team. Just say you know to stay fresh. You know we'll get you eventually. I think if you're the Lakers right now yes feel pretty good because not only can you not only have you played really well year going fourteen and two but there's minutes for their it's Los Angeles you know he can play with Lebron James. Anthony Davis Abyss. You know they I think they feel pretty confident about where they stand because they were arguing talked a front runner before getting off to this excellent start. So we'll see you know he could also obviously tame off the bench as well With all experience is championship champion. ABC's one you know. He could definitely help a team in the locker room to. So we'll see what happens with that situation. We'll keep monitoring that we like to do. These trade rakings every now and then in the podcast to kind of give you an update on these players situations in guys that may possibly be moved before February. I want to thank thank my guest.

Now Sirius Xm radio richeisenshow terrestrial. Say Hello to the Mightier ten ninety and southern California. in specific and Um, and we say hello to somebody who knows a lot about southern California and it was great to see you know when I I I host NFL the grind on epic's when I'm done here on Tuesday, go to NFL network and I shoot that show work with NFL films, which is amazing epochs, which is amazing and and then it's On tonight at nine eastern time on epochs and It's a a an amazing look at the week through the Lens of a couple of correspondence, as well as an essay looking forward to next week and say that look back to the week that just hit and then correspondence usually go to stadiums. But in cove nineteen world, we have to be a little bit more inventive. And who's more inventive than Chatto Jacinto? Chad Johnson Aka formerly known as just Ocho Cinco correct now, he's just known as Chad Johnson against stuff to keep up with tough to keep up. All right. So Chad went to Idaho why would chan go to Idaho their NFL Games in IDAHO WITH HIS NFL game watching an Idaho. And the person who he went and visited in Idaho. Is none other than his former quarterback Carson Palmer Day watched the bengals versus Jacksonville and watch Joe Borough. With his first game in the same uniform number the Carson war hooking up with t higgins who were the wearing the same number uniform as Chad Johnson right now. So, there's a new nine and eighty five and the old nine and eighty five watch them together. ME. I honestly would expect your response to be how dare anybody where eighty five. That's rude. Route it is. Let's just. Do person a championship or But you still set on. When people see the number eighty five. I think. Regardless of what team is the eighty-five it just resonates with Chad that play there. He's bigger than me. Busy Yeah How great is that? Did you sitting there watching television? And size said, let's get Carson Palmer on a program. Not, just because I I love him and he's great to have here and I've him for a long time but there's no chance I'd be able to reach Chattanooga. A. Show. which is my only way of introducing Carson Palmer back here to the rich Eisen show you carson. Rich. Great. Thanks for having me. How was it having chat over? Who Was it was awesome. Seen each other and I don't know twelve, thirteen fourteen years I'm Ryan, he actually you know he rolled up in a motor home you got out with some cowboy boots on and he actually I told him he he actually looks like he's got younger since I've seen him at ten or fifteen years. So it was really good to reconnect and sit down and wash bengals play no kit. That's how long it has been since you last actually. Were in the same room as Chad Ocho Cinco Johnson. That's how long it's been. Yeah. Yeah. We were to get in in Cincinnati. He got traded to New England, right? I didn't play against him when he was in Newark New England or Miami, and then he was out of the League and doing some stuff for for different networks and and doing all kinds of social media stuff and I would then went on to Arizona and we just didn't have a chance to connect. We talked when we were in in In whatever towns the Super Bowl was was in just couldn't connect and finally got a chance to connect with my backyard when he came rolling up in a motor home in Idaho looking for Bison. So it was it was. It. was good to see him and reconnect them and like I said watch the bengals play. All right. Let's go hit the the way back machine a little bit before we get to the present day. Then when was the first time you met Chad? What was the first conversation you've ever had without Joe Cinco do you remember that Carson Palmer? I I was drafted by the Bengals flew from the draft in New York City to Cincinnati and he showed up I rolled in the locker room with a suit on and you know cameras around and media, and he was in his locker waiting for me came up to me gave me a big hug and they went right into the press conference with the and at sat in the back of the room you know welcome you with open arms back in two, thousand and three. Wow. That's how long and then what was he like in the huddle you got a good story playing with him. What he was doing the Pairing of burying signs in this in the snow and putting with pylons and things like that after scoring touchdowns. In the huddle he was annoying he was always telling me how. Come to me this play come to me this play. I go back and watch the show and he was double and triple coverage but. He was never covered nobody could cover them and Once you once you get to know a guy like Chad and that kind of personality you know you take each time he says I'm wide open with a grain of salt and make sure that you know when you when you go to with the ball, that is a one on one situation or he is open. But I mean that was just you know the love love of the Game Love Life Chat. He was so much fun to with and you know he was a great guy to have in the locker room. He always brought some levity, the practice field when you were tired or you know you, you've lost the week before he always made it. He always made it fun. And the NEAT thing to Carson is I. Know You. Personally away from this phone call and this microphone and know that you are in your home your dad I so but your kids do know what what you know who you are and what you did, but it's not you. How did you explain to them? WHO's coming over to the house? Carson. About that yeah. That chat show Nice. Professional relationship was before any of my kids were really born. I've got a little four year old named Carter run around the house. I don't even think he knows really what football is definitely doesn't know that I played football but Chad came in the house. He was nine o'clock in the morning he shows up and he's smoking a cigar. Just staring at him going who is this guy? Nothing in his mouth. and. Why is he in a house? I'm like Chad me and get out of the House Cigar this. Can't do that. I got kids around. You know he went outside and. My four year olds just chatterbox. So he just follow chat around way back about his tattoos and Jabber showing. Chad's got a whole leg of forecast tattoos and entire leg. You know kneecap down and my son Carter was kind of just thought that was amazing. These got shampoo on his leg. So there was a lot of fun for all of us and you know chats the big kids. So he treats all the kids You know great and just fun to be around. Yeah. It sounds it sounds like a movie it sounds like. It sounds like it comes Jack like Uncle Buck walking in you know I mean that's exactly what it's. Called Chad. Walking Sounds like a John Hughes movie busted out as opposed to NFL, the grind on epic's. But you can see tonight at nine eastern time at Carson Palmer here on the rich Eisen show. Also, you'll see a chat that you and chat with t higgins and Joe Borough after they won and you just you know. So let's get to the football aspect of this thing I, it's kind of ridiculous to say this when he's got a heisman trophy. And he's got sixty touchdowns last year from LSU and he's first overall pick like you. But Joe Boroughs real deal Carson. Out about it, there's no doubt I mean he's. The expectations that are put on you when you're the number one, pick our intense you're going to a team that didn't win very many games that year before and they were the worst team league. You probably don't have a ton of talent around you and you're expected to carry your team and he is absolutely exceeded all expectations. In my opinion he wanted to play well and and you expect some rookie throws and rookie mistakes here and there, and he's done such a good job. With the ball he hasn't forced many throws he's thrown some really really mature You know veteran tight throws I. Think back that last game against. against Jacksonville, going in to the end zone at the end of a two minute drill in the first half, and you know you get in the ten yard line and there's there's a few seconds left o'clock and you want to throw the ball in the end zone. You feel like you have to throw the ball in the end zone and he takes the cheque down and gives the ball to a playmaker on the edge and Joe Mixing makes the guy miss gets gets in the end zone and it's just a really you know very mature decision, very mature throw for him to Put the ball on Joe Joe. Mixing, and that situation he just consistently does that he does the ball he's getting hit every time. He drops back. He's getting hit completing balls with with touch and feathering the ball in zones over linebackers heads, and underneath safeties and just you know it really I. I hate to put too much on on a young guy. But he's exceeded all expectations and played better than than I think really anybody in Cincinnati expected and probably throughout the League and not a lot of people are seeing play The Nation got to see him play on Thursday night against Cleveland and I mean that was that was as good of a week. Three Rookie quarterback game is can as I can remember him they lost but man, he's carrying his team he's putting on his back and not forcing throws not making rookie decision but it's been a really really bright spot in Cincinnati. It's been great. It has a I echo every sentiment and you know I haven't. You know I don't watch with the I had like you do. Knowing, what decisions can be made or what he is making in? Mistakes could have been made I. mean it really does seem just from the naked eye just as a fan sitting back that he's got the weaponry and he's utilizing it and he's getting better every week you know I don't know if they'll make the playoffs I mean not but I don't think that that's necessary either it seems like he's in a good spot carson right. I'd be shocked if they made the playoffs, I mean you've got Baltimore and Pittsburgh and your deficient, and that's always kind of the hard part for for the bengals. But I mean I think the thing that jumps out most is how accurate he is getting hit right after he's throwing it and just as he's releasing the ball or seeing defender coming at him Scott Free, he's still throwing the ball accurately down the field and not throwing it into coverage when you see these young guys come in the League and You know they're getting hit by bigger faster, more physical stronger guys and it's easy to shy away from hits or it's easy to miss a ball a little lower little outside but he's standing in the pocket. He's natural in the pocket. He's got his eyes downfield. He's moving just enough out of the way to be able to hold on that ball for a split second longer right before he gets hit to let his guy, get open or let his receiver be thrown open by by the touch that he's throwing the ball with so. I mean I you know like I said, you hate to put so much praise on a young Guy but he's he's just looked so mature and so natural. I know it's it's a familiar system for him but you think back to the guy didn't have much training camp or any OTA's couldn't get together with his his receivers Chad and I used to do all summer long in. Los. Angeles at Home Depot Center because of Kobe you know he didn't have that. Extra reps away from the practice facility thrown with his guy. So you know everything he's done his like I said exceeded exceeded my expectations Carson Palmer here on the rich Eisen show I guess just walk through the front door as opposed to being You know a inferring I mean the story at the Super Bowl was quite a bit Carson about whether you thought Cincinnati would be the right spot for him and that made a lot of news as I'm sure. You know and it just seems to me that he's got a J. Green. He's Got Boyd Got Mixing and he's got a coach that doesn't seem to be on any hot seat and a successor of yours at USC Sam Darnold he he would sign for that right now wish for something like that. It seems like he's in a horrible spot, but it does seem like Barros in the right spot that do you think that Cincinnati is is doing right by him. Carson. Well. He's also got t higgins jona Williams at left tackle on. But you know that that offense alignment will continues that offense line will continue to get better and like we said earlier, you know I don't know if since he makes the playoffs but the future is bright with Joe. You know you just hope that that organization continues to spend like they did this offseason, they spend a bunch of money in free agency. You hope that they continue to spend and build around him and you know aren't satisfied with you know nine, seven, ten and six. You hope that they they they want to win a championship as bad as. Joe Does, and the rest of those guys on that team. So time will tell you know obviously, history doesn't bode well with the amount of losing that organizations done. But with Joe in and that young talent they have offense and and like you said, Aj, you know what? A great spot for t higgins to go right Binay Jay Green who's been a dominant receivers Chad was in his heyday. So what do you make of? Darnold, what's happening with him and what you're seeing on or if you caught any of the Thursday night game on that was nationally up there. What do you think about what's happening to the former USC Trojan will? New York I. Think He needs a lot of help and fast You know everybody hopes everybody saw the run he took off and. You know the forty yard touchdown he ran the athleticism that he has. But when you don't have T- Higgins Aj Green and Joe Mixing in the Backfield I, Know Lady on Bells Been Hurt I don't know if I can name a receiver on the new. York. Jets roster. But since since Sam's been with the jets, he just hasn't had. AGO weapon outside he hasn't had a dominant back in the backfield lady on Bill's been banged up. The offensive. Line. Is Struggling I mean I just you watch Sam play and and there isn't a lot hope that that they're going to figure it out quick just because they don't have a true number one, they don't have the offense. The jets, no of of the debris rickshaw in nick mangled years past they're there they they just don't have the support and Sam does not have the support That you would hope he would have in year three or four whatever this is for him. So you know I I still think he has a ton of game I think he can spend it with the best of them I think he's a great athlete has pocket presence is top five in the league and you don't get to see it because he's under so much pressure. You can see a quarterback's pocket presence when one guy comes and he can avoid him and stuff up in the pocket and create a pocket to throw in. But when when you're trying to step up in the pocket and there's three guys coming free I don't care if you're Mike Vick. Russell Wilson I. Don't it doesn't matter who you are. You can't avoid those kinds of plays and you know Sam just is you know he struggled because he doesn't have. A. Lot of confidence. It looks like in the guys around him unfortunately, and last one for you, Carson. You. Know we had last you had you on when Brady hooked up with the box in you said he and Arians and just going to be like peanut butter and Jelly what do you make of the first four weeks of this offense? You know there's been a lot of injury in OJ. Howard's out now and Godwin probably won't be back for this early week contest to kick off week five. But what are you seeing about the cohesiveness in this offense coming together that you know so well, Carson Were I think the sky's the limit and they couldn't be in a better situation at a better time. You know Mike Evans has been banged up now lost OJ and and You're getting a chance to see that you know Gronkowski's getting the rust off. That's been he. He did sit out for an entire year as it did and he didn't get kind of targets early on in this season. But you know now he's got a chance to kind of get his feet wet get that rust off. Mike Evans been banged up Godwin's been banged up you want to see those those injuries. If you're a new unit in a new system early, you don't WanNa see those in late November and early December so I I just think it's time up right for them to be banged up for them to find other playmakers find other guys they can count on his they do get into those cold months. November. December and January and you know five touchdowns at age forty, three it's amazing. It's spectacular and and this is still there only in the first quarter of the season. This is only you know this town's first quarter of being in a new system and you know Byron left which the Play colors I four weeks with Tom and getting more and more comfortable with him and seeing what he likes seeing what he dislikes. So I think the sky's the limit I think the system is great I know the system great and they're going through some trials and tribulations early on which you kind of expect you know Brady was in one system in one organization for so long you don't expect him just to pick up where he left off like he's twenty six again, you expect to see those struggles. We saw those struggles early in week against the saints when they lost and I I. Just think that unit continues to get healthier continues to get more comfortable with Tom in the huddle and Tom you know at that practice on Game Day how is how he likes certain routes and certain concepts and certain play calls at certain times. So you know I like I said, I, think the sky's the limit and they're they're gonNA start hitting on all cylinders here in the next couple of weeks and and maybe you know get the point where you know we're all talking about the bucks and how unstoppable there on offense and how much better defense is going to be getting the season whereas on. Last one for you Carson, you mentioned rust in mentioned being rusty. Just quick I guess easy question who's more rusty somebody who hasn't played in a year and Gronk or your barber i. saw you on. An ethics on the the video and it's going to be on tonight. couldn't help but notice who's more rusty somebody who hasn't played football in a year or the person who cuts your hair. Carson. Cuts, my hair me this is the cova cut. Down you haven't been to a barber since right around Christmas time right before. Christmas right and doing it myself. You know I was I looked online and I ordered a flow be he the? From Wayne's world. Cut Yes right by. Myself Floaty and I've been doing it myself and I'm okay with it. I'm okay with it I. Don't I'm married my wife's okay with it. So you know I'm GonNa keep riding until this covert thing is gone I can get back into the Barbara Okay because we couldn't help. But notice again you have that rustic look it does match one would think big. Sky Country Idaho. Occasion. You do have a quitter count although you're not really on it. One of the most used Jeff's on twitter is the moment of Robert Nodding his head from. Jeremiah Johnson it's very similar. Very similar. You Know Carson got. That's look I was going for it got nailed it. I think he's stuck the landing I don't I don't think Robert Redford cut his his own hair for that film though now with the flow be I don't think so but it's close. It takes a special talent. Here on the show, we say we go higher register when we really don't believe what we're saying you Kinda went higher addresses saying you kind of like it. You said I I'm okay with it like you literally went that way. So you really are okay with it. You know I don't like shading and I don't like spending an hour in in a barber just don't like I don't know anybody I know a lot of women like going to the Salon and spending time I feel like I'm wasting my time I there's better things I could be doing so cove it has been a great excuse for me. Got It just to let it go and and make sure that term the beings just a mess of the hair is not in my eyes itching my eyes and all the rest of it it just let it go I, put a hat on I go outside. You know I do my thing and and You know I'm I'm just taking my time. Letting it go. It's. It's not quite a mullet i. don't know what you would call it like we China anybody references yourself and Robert Redford. For Clint Eastwood. Me and use US name that's a win. That's a w. you ask him a quick quick asking the question real quick, and then we'll, and then we'll send him on his day Shirt Art Carson we've got a bond question today who in the sports world would make the best bond inch men, conor McGregor Bo ban is Latin or marshawn Lynch, but do you think?

I wouldn't even know this man's been letting it go a little bit but he's in styling. He's got he's got flow but. I've been seeing. Lettuce Kyle Kyle Brandt of good morning football and ten questions with Kyle Brandt popular podcast on spotify and the Ringer back here on the program. How are you call? Rich everybody could hear all these conversations you guys are having because I'm on hold listening and I wanted in bad I I'm like the guy in midnight express pressed against the glass. Let me in I wanNA talk about the cut and rich. US. There is a jeff get thing as it pertains those little animated things on social media and it goes back to a very. Puzzling, fork in the road where everyone said. Gift Gif right and then as far as the inventor of mediums media and no no no, it's Jif. Peanut butter and so everybody partied into Jif for gifts, camps and I understand that your guy. Well Kyle. You know what I It's not my first. Rodeo when NFL network we're starting it was wondering do we? We were calling terrel Owens, we calling Terrell Owens because it Cheryl Davis and then Then t o faces we came out and said I'm terrible and I would actually have to on my nfl total access notes right the word T. E. R. L. to remind myself to say that but nothing caused greater conundrum for me. Then when Keenan mccardell said he was mcardle and I. And I like first of all, where does that come from and secondly how dare he That's a three syllable situation and there were there were many a moment where it was dicey from a so. We're ripped from the headlines to rich to the season two two evenings in a row on Monday night Steve. Levy has had a pronunciation of thing trending on twitter where I was the raiders running back who we all thought that his name was Jaylen Rashard but then it turns out it's Jalen recharge. And then the bigger one layer, the chief. Edward The E. I Bet Steve Spent. All Week looking into this and maybe even talk into class busy layer. So maybe he's right I I was wondering the same thing and people sent me on twitter a video from Lsu. They said go to the three minute mark and you hear how he pronounces it and he said he later it's just that leaves leaves is just so. Into everything he just he he's. So just he is like the the the the and that's why he's been at it for so long and so popular is that he got sick gets that hitch in his throat you know like once you have is a fan and so on occasion sometimes it would sound like. A pig vomit from. From. The Howard start from from private parts where it was like you like. Layer, like it was like the. New was basically it was basically like Paul Giamati went to him before Monday night football and made him say in the mirror over and over again and it was cloudy. And Breezy assets right. That's what we we were on for many months. I only wish leave you this coming weekend could cover a game featuring Chris Fu a follow up because then we could go anywhere with that. My. Last point on this is we're riffing. For Mooch we we had him once upon a time say Hala Paulo booty vitae or something like that and spell it and his spelling being and on Game Day morning it was. It's still it's still an instant classic hollow Pooley Ati Vitality Go. Draw Pool of VRT restaurant. attacked. By is in the hall of fame and Ritz. The only other guy would wanNA shout out his from from your one time neck of the woods Tishman Biakabutuka can. You GotTa love, him me to how are you? Great. This is why I love the show I thought I'm here about Haircut Q.. And we're five minutes. And a half minutes in my kind of hang to brain here on the rich Eisen show. Okay. I thought for a second. I feel like we hit this every week. But why not I thought for a second that Nagy was going to pull the trigger back on trubisky in the middle of that game because it was looking so So I guess pedestrian with Nick Foles what? What gives an all that. Stuff. Not Allow Tabuchi and it would have been fascinating if the leash and Nicholas was even shorter. You know one of those retractable leashes with the little thumb button and the bag attached to it that appears. Nagy. Rolled with that was one of the Stranger Bear Games I've seen in my life. It was so strange in fact that nationally I don't think really anybody saw it, and if you were watching red zone, they never went to the game. There were never any place. So this game was in the upside down and no one watched it and you see this new. Ended no one's going what's going on with Foale's I noticed on the the rich Eisen show twitter account earlier you were doing a a bit in which you're asking for gifts or Jeff's as it were ascribe your team that's right and. That is into the. Game, and now I'm looking at the Ted Knight. Judge smells just where waiting. Like that's where I'm at. We were supposed to have the whole reckoning, with nick, foles and it taps into something in the neurosis of bears fence, which is the whole thing falls, which is Nick foles if you want him to jump off of a skyscraper holding onto. Tarzan. Vine with a baby in his hands as the building explodes, he is the man, the miracle maker, but sometimes you just want. Someone, to just make a ham sandwich and I don't know if he can do that every day it was every fear confirmed for bears fans that he's great in a crisis break foles in case of emergency, but really pedestrian at regular times. So what happens now Brady's coming into the house off of five touchdown performance at age forty, three I mean that's that's happening tomorrow night. I know on the shortest week and it's all these these apologists are saying for nagging falls. Well, you know did not on the same page with his receivers and got to work well too bad. Then you gotTa short week now we stumbled into something smart I I would love to hear your thoughts. I mean, we we raise the question about. With all Brady's accomplishments and all he's done not only just football but in life do you think he has something extra special for Nick foles because Nick foles represents such a such a bitter defeat for him and I was asked the question you know I think schrager and burrows and breys enough improve falls whatever it is not on the same level I said hold on a second I always think of Tom Brady's life in. In a full ninety year span and twenty years from now when he's an incredible golf course and he's teeing off, he's got a great life and a great family and a great swing. There's a couple things in his life that are going to piss them off. One is Eli Manning ally Manning, tortured him two nights and one is that damn night against Nick foles and Super Bowl fifty two in which brady didn't even just lose. Kind of embarrassingly dropped a pass and then made a huge fumble with the game on the line, and it's the only super bowl where I can think of Brady. In more ways than one dropping the ball, those giants games, they had his number and that eagles when he had it and he coughed it up and I think there's something extra special with he and what Nick foles represents in that game well, I mean I think you're you'll get the answer to your question. If prior to this game, we do hear from Tom Brady and he's just wants to talk about getting in rhythm with X. Y. and Z.. That will tell you the answer because nothing is been more under I guess underwhelming from a member of the media who says or an opinionated who says Tom Brady has nothing left to prove you've got to be like this guy will literally find anything to us to get him ready to prove something that nobody else thinks needs to be proved. I, mean he's the king of no. Country believes in you know it's it's. It's absolutely why he is who he is. It's absolutely why he throws for almost four hundred yards and five touchdowns as a forty three year old. I think he definitely has something in store for Nick foles and. And thinking to stop their guts out that's what I think I really believe and now everything's Rosie. Now for Brady you know that. Lets you forget rich I was on on the phone with you three weeks ago on this very, very appearance saying rich I'm terrified I I pick the books go to the Super Bowl they look so bad against the saints and you calm down brother come down one week one week and you were right and I would only say this then that saints game for Brady well could have been that colts game for Nick foles there's this first game out there he looked flat he looked awkward through A. Bad interception exactly. Like Brady did. So I still think there's the potential for fireworks those than I and I think is going to be a second layer going on especially with nagy getting already called out in Chicago radio. He's an offense of fraud I mean it's starting fast the three in one and they're already common for him I tell you and then we'll just move on to a couple of things left with Dow brand here on the rich Eisen show we just had we just hung up from. My my Arians whisper and Carson Palmer and. He said that the injuries to Godwin and now OJ Howard and Evans being if you will banged up like walking around like running around run around like Fred G. Sanford you know this all going to play to the benefit of Brady in this offense when it is full strength later on that, the reps need to be gotten with guys that he he might not. Be Making plays with later on, but will be complementary players in the roles currently that they serve as crucial players that this is only going to serve to make them stronger and that Brady, and that's and that's the interpretation of Aaron saying they would have gotten their ass beat by twenty points last year as opposed to winning the game that they just played. I think I. Partition and I would urge everyone don't get caught up in style points this season pay attention to the teams that are stacking wins. Aaron. Rodgers is doing the same thing that Brady's doing with even less got nobody out there the Pittsburgh steelers three and they haven't looked great. But when November and December comes around when they start to actually look good and say, well, it's going to be those teams that stacked wins. That's all that matters who cares about style points this is going to be the ugliest season ever maybe just teams that stack wins and Brady's getting. Right. Let's talk about your pod. How'd you Bill Simmons? Bill Man. Craft. With a minute. He accused me read of using him for like Conan used to use our roker when someone dropped out last. Floors please. Albert yet do. Tony Randall show for Letterman pretty much you know. Right so he came on and got into some really fascinating topics about twitter and social media got into the topic of interviewing because he's done some pretty big people and he interviewed Obama twice and I just asked him I said so come on were you nervous setting? He tells this whole story about kind of put off because Obama would ice you let much like a coach with a kicker and he put you in the oldest room in the white. House with the creaky floors and the old paintings with the eyeballs moving and make you sit there for twenty minutes and then turn off. You hear that sounds about fifteen people walking down the hallway and secret service and Obama walking in and he said, then the nerves get going I got to thinking about anybody I've talked to has made me nervous Ritz can you remember the first time? You were really nervous for an interview you were doing oh wow. Let me think about that. First of all I know there's an eye in a bill to Simmons but I mean you have to really think Obama was trying to him or maybe he was being president of the United States and couldn't be on time for the interview. What do you think? Important cabinet meeting. That he was trying to on a Twenty minute. Know let me think here Yeah I. I was telling the story just the other day I forget to whom but I'll tell it again here and I might have told it before but I was twenty six years old on sportscenter and and I all I wanted to do was go out into the sports world and and see what it was like outside of Bristol. Connecticut being sportscenter anchor and actually start covering things and be out there as opposed to sitting on the set for two you know two in the morning I kept begging them to give me an assignment. So they finally gave me one for NBA tonight the number two night. SPN To and I was GONNA go cover the at the time rampaging Seattle Sonics. To take on the Celtics went to the old Boston Garden. and I covered the game for ESPN to actually sat next to a Boston Celtic. Scout who was named Al.. The Guy who played the GRANDPA on the munsters was literally an NBA Scout. I. Sat next to Grandpa Al Lewis Underneath one of the baskets that happened. That's not what made me nervous but what made me nervous was after me saying over and over and over again I wanted to be out and about from the sports set and I WANNA be out in the field and I WANNA be out and mingling with the athletes who covering I'm standing in that small little visitor's locker room and the old Boston Garden and incomes the surly. Gary. Payton and the angry Detlev shrimp and George Karl who staring a hole through me and I thought to myself Oh you know what what? Did I say about any of these going through my mental Rolodex of what I said from high on my sportscenter seat mount and I, was literally a sportscenter anchor with figurative close on standing in that locker room and it was a note to me to say from now on I will never say anything on the air that I would never say to a player or coach coaches face again that was the lesson I priceless. But I was nervous I was absent first time I was professionally flat out nervous about interviewing anybody and but it changed the way I looked at stuff and I'm sure interviewing Obama did for bill in any way shape or form interviewing people after that I assume. It's incidentally just to bring this full circle. I. Left shrimp the might have been in that club of gentleman who cut her own hair. They might have been upset because Sam. Perkins. Used the flow be and forgot to plug it back in I don't know. It. Could've happened amount. Might have been you think it was the last dance year that did lead to this Seattle making the finals. That's probably what it was because I was a year one year two sports center at the time. So so last one. Kyle. Ut's down on twitter that you spoke to. A lead actor of one of the greatest films of all time for your next episode of Your Pod and thank you for asking fabulous count yesterday recorded it, and there's the teased. Okay.

Welcome back to the rich Eisen show here on the mighty ten ninety in the rest of our terrestrial radio network. So then Let's get to this and then we'll take some phone calls. If we still have time if you're on hold stay on hold, we got our third hour the program still to come. So we come on the air Yesterday and we had John Maclean from the Houston Chronicle up and we were kind of surprised about Bill O'Brien's firing, right? I mean sure their own four but they won the division for out of the last six years. Of all the coaches to be on for that, you'd think would be potentially out. Before their expected, you would go with the jets coach or Atlanta's coach to be Maudlin talking about people's jobs like that. But. Let's be honest faith ran those organizations have not won four out of the last six division titles and they also don't give the general manager's position even though what is a football operations vp role to the coach either? So, why after four and four start deb just say you're out Well. There's more answers now. According to John Granato of Espn Ninety, seven, five, and Houston. Bill O'Brien. Had it heated exchange on the practice field the week of the steelers game with this player who questioned his quote Unquote coaching ability that player is J. J. Watt. WHO Let me read off. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said O'Brien had an argument verbal altercations with staff members during the final weeks is the coach general manager before being fired he also had an argument leading up the steelers game with. The defensive coordinator of the team Anthony Weaver Is The coach of? Jj Watt. I read. We're not done yet my colleague James Palmer from NFL network. Great head of hair you want to talk about how to hear. Literally topnotch big time. He added multiple players. From the Texans that he spoke with. He asked them if O'Brien had lost the locker room according to James Palmer. Multiple. Texas players, he spoke with answered all of them uniformly. Unanimously yes. He had lost the locker room. So if you're the owner of the Texans and you're already been okay look and I've gave you the keys to the store and I watched your sign Laremy Tunsil. Giving them only three years after your coughed up to ones and a two for him and a wide receiver and I saw we did last year and we made it to the second round of the playoffs and. And I, I, I held my tongue. When you said, we gotTA Trade De'andre Hopkins. But now on foreign I'm here and you're. Having. A heated. Set to with J. J. Watt. The Defensive Coordinator and I'm hearing you've lost the locker room now. One plus one. One. Eagles. Three year out. John McGLADE just tweeted A. Bill Brian got in shouting matches with players, coaches, and staffers on and off the field because that's his personality always has been always will be people didn't like it, but they took it when they won graded on them when they were losing. kind of make sense. Didn't didn't. John Maclean, talk about a temper temper. Yeah. We've all seen that famous clip of him and Tom Brady going added on for. About too. There's your answer when you're on for that stuff doesn't fly and Romeo Cornell, has showed up at his first press conference. seventy, three year old Romeo Different Albany. showed up at his first press conference as the interim head coach of the Houston Texans. With a baseball CAP. On backwards. Never. GonNa win now. That's it. I mean, I mean. So what should we spend the wheel needs to act as age At the been there before rational what if you're meeting with season ticket holders and corporate sponsors? She's is the oldest head coach in the National Football League right now. That seventy-three. Here's another one I was thinking of the other day. Pete Carroll is the all. Are We counting the Reason why I was thinking about this is is that you know obviously it's pro football fan you can't count the USC stuff, but you have to count the fact that he left that to go I understand the circumstances that he left behind but he did come from college. He's been in the football long time. He had a team almost almost one two in a row if he wins another one. Not a first batter. Well there's no such thing as I. Mean I could be a first ballot as coach that once you're five years removed and you're eligible bell check is going to be. Get. The second one he's in I think so too. The reason why I thought about it is again if Dabo swinney decides okay, I'll take an a Jillian cow. McNair dollars and leave. Clemson to coach Shawn Watson. And bring my college. To pro. I've got. What the Glass Egg and Lombardi trophy. was or whatever the trophy was when when Pete wanted at USC but. Thing about Daboh, he doing it not for money. He does have a ninety million dollar deal I know but you could be doing it for money if it's one, hundred, twenty, million dollar deal I mean, if he gives you know if if you top group deal. He'll come off Clemson or at least think about maybe. Eight four, four, two, zero, four rich is the number to dial. We will take your calls in the third hour. The actor, Jon? Courtney is going to be joining us here on the program and Chris, Brockman. News Update. The San Diego padres have named a starter for game two. We'll have that and so much more to moment.

Right here on F s one tomorrow we are off Friday we're back tomorrow there's a lot of things happening on this network, a lot of sports of baseball NFL. So we are off tomorrow. Then we are back Friday just the way the game works tomorrow we got a lot of things in the building and because of Covid the number of people we can have in the building in the testing. It's just kind of an odd day we don't get. We don't take days off in the football season, but Tamara we're off. So we're here today Joel Klatt will join us by the way I, like my presidents to be presidential. Not a huge fan of the current guy I like a little presidential refined little humble my quarterbacks to be quarterback. He'll Russell Wilson, Tom Brady refine humble credit to others. But I'm kind of over it. In social media, let's down the icons and let's be falsely humble about people. Nobody cares about. Everybody, that's irrelevant is suddenly fascinating in all the icons who are relevant just overpaid overrated I'm over it. So I'm okay with Aaron Rodgers saying this yesterday and he said this on a podcast with the PAT McAfee show. Here it is. You know I I sometimes laugh when people talk about you know down years for me 'cause low times down years for me or careers from score. Was Awesome. Defects from. That's funny. And I'm okay with it. Like I'm okay with it. Aaron Rodgers. Times. MVP Super Bowl. He just got a divorce publicly with Mike McCarthy McCarthy is drowning. He's drowning and Aaron Rodgers is not he's flourishing and if he's feeling himself this. Okay. Yesterday. Howard Stern's one hundred, twenty, million dollar contract all the loser came out of the woodwork. You could have two hundred podcast for that Oh. Gosh. What the world needs two hundred more podcasts nobody listens. There's ten sports podcasts in America that have an audience I have one. I don't need another podcast I won't listen to I need Howard stern or I don't listen to xm serious their stock went up in Howard contract was announced. My wife would not renew it without Howard. It's okay to acknowledge Howard's great. Oprah's Great Russell Wilson's Great Aaron Rodgers Great, Lebron James Great, urban Meyer, great nick, Sabin Great. I'll give them once a year I'll let him smoke a cigar and puff their chest and go. I'm pretty good. It's okay or you can prefer twitter. Were falsely humble and everybody that's irrelevant is. You are so great. Not really we don't need anymore podcast. You can shut it down right now. Howard's great errands. Great. I'm going to give him a little moment deflects and we're all going to be okay because it's authentic and honest and isn't that what we want from our athletes I liked that Aaron Rodgers. Honest. I got enough be Eser's in my life. I got enough politicians enough people sell them. He nonsense I got enough of that in my life. What I don't have is honesty. That's what I want. And with speaking of honesty, a man who is often wrong but never without conviction or authenticity Joel Klatt, the Voice of college football this network, the only guests with the courage the join us in studio it's going on hey hey. I'm going GONNA start podcast. It's been. What do you think you and Gus Jenny Jenny by the way is on my aeroplane Saturday night does not acknowledge my existence. Why? Did she recognize you? She said later she did she had a Fox. What do you call it like a mouthguard on for covid right mask a mask. They're calling. L. scarred. That's Jenny Cathy. was going to go up to her but she ignored me and then later she goes yeah, I thought it was you to be fair I would ignore you as well. All right. Okay. So here's the segments run out of time. Okay, let's get to that. Let's get to the brass tacks on. Let's do it. Texas can't. Lose to TCU year after year after year true. Okay. Recruiting matters. It's Texas that's USC losing the cow. I don't want to give you one. I don't want to see it again and again and again, and again think about this Tcu before joining the big twelve was one in thirty two in their last thirty, three against Texas and then they're seven two cents joining the conference. Yeah. That's that's a problem and. By the way the boosters know if USC started losing the cow, you can lose to Oregon. Occasionally, you can lose to Ohio State Michigan, he started losing a cow. The boosters are like no way I. I know that do that cows a rugby program we're the football program. I'm not going to throw cold water on CAL quite like dad call him a rugby program. But yes, it's absolutely the truth. This is why when it comes to, we're doing red river this week and it's such an interesting game not just because there's no fair going on there's going to be you know twenty, five percent capacity I mean it's GonNa feel so different, but it's also Oklahoma's coming off back to back conference losses for the first time. Since the John Blake era don't mention that to Oklahoma fans they'll plug their ears. And then Texas again, losing to an unranked opponent as a ranked team. Did you know since Herman got there in two thousand seventeen he's eleven and six in such games where he's ranked, they're not was the knock on him going in he was a great underdog coach but he flailed a little bit as a favorite Co. he was good at. HOUSTON. Let's let's let's let's face. It got really good at Houston, and that's one of the he was a giant slayer at Houston. Remember he beat that Lamar Jackson Team at Louisville he beat Oklahoma I mean. He did a lot of really good things at Houston the the the knock though is that those six losses as a ranked team to unranked opponents are the most in college football over that span. Oh so so that's a problem that fan base right and they're they know it and they they want that to change him by the way. Oh. US Not rank this week. They all the pressure in the world is on Texas, and here's the reason know the reason Texas's rosters built to win this year, the two, thousand, eighteen recruiting classes. One of the best in the country they're all third year players in that program, they've gotta get it done. They've got thirty players on their roster that have starting experience. It's the it's I believe it's the. Third or fourth best roster and all of college football. You Look at the twenty four, seven composite rankings, which just looks at where kids were ranked when they were recruited. Texas is one of the most talented rosters in the country. Three of their players were four or five star player. So I can't they tackle that they're a bad defensive team they're out of position they don't tackle particularly well, no I. Disagree with that you didn't watch closely enough. Going better, they're more imposition this year than they have been, they just have been under developed over the last number I don't get a consistent pass rush in that confrontation. They don't know they don't and they're starting they change some positions around. So a guy named Joseph Asai. Not to get into the weeds, but he moved from linebacker down to about like a Jack End. Position and he started playing pressure on on Doug and a little bit last week against Tcu and I think that will continue during the course of the season. So they've got a lot of kids changing positions because Chris ash is running a very different style of defense than what Todd Orlando didn't as a change court coordinator. Orlando's now with USC but this all pales in. is in a full rebuild right now. Yeah. Right I said they lost a two conference games. They have a quarterback, the kid they're breaking in through the first time around. You No. Question. About. Oklahoma they have. In the future, they have a right every fifteen years to rebuild for you. I got no issues with Oklahoma and I got issues. Now you're in the third year of a rebuilt in a conference. Frankly there's one team Texas plays every year with as much talent Oklahoma. That's right. That is it. That's right. You're rebuild is two years top and this year they have more talent. Than assault they have to at least at a minimum play for a big twelve championship and if they lose Saturday, they lose control of their own destiny to get to that game. The pressure is squarely between the eyes of Texas. All right. I liked I liked I always liked Texas. Clemson Miami okay. Miami looks like they have a great Russian by the way they have a one. They have a grabbed probably the best rush defense. A Lot of people selling this real estate to me for years O. Beachfront. That's the best by then the market collapses with. Miami take. They've sold me a lot of high rise condos that are worth half of what they're. I bought him device year. I'm just GONNA. Say Defensively I, watch them they're good. They're good. They got NFL guy and you know what they're fast. They can rush the quarterback they can cover all these fundamental things. made it. Manny Diaz has got a defense that is pretty good. Was that is bowl mark like why is he absolutely used defensive because he he got the defense cook, and absolutely he's a defensive oriented coach and then The big shift for me. I've always thought like, Hey, Miami, is going to be able to play defense undermanning. They'll have the talent they'll have the speed. The big question for me was what kind of quarterback play my going to get what type of offense if I going to get red lash laser new offense coordinator when you pair him now with Derek King there have forty three points a game. This year Derek King is is going to be clemson can make. Here's what Sir can they compete with? Can they just they can and they lose thirty three to twenty four game until eight minutes to go last week Clemson only beat. I can't even remember who is at Virginia by eighteen and it was only the second time in the last couple of years at an ACC team has has been within even thirty points of of Clemson. This is going to be a close game. Okay. I'll I'll call up my almost upset of the. It's not quite going to be an upset, but it's going to be an almost. Let me tell you. said. College football. A lot of courage agree thank you. Calling College football is way better nothing against the Ohio states in Michigan's. It's way better when Miami in USC on the coast have swagger are arrogant college football's got a bunch of good old boys I like a little city I like the hurricanes I like the Trojans I like Miami coming back. So it gives me somebody to route four. Aaron Rodgers puffs Don't mean Colin starts feeling. I got one of the top ten podcasts I'm on the coast. Eddie now. Knew me heard it's not the. Entire two people being falsely humble Miami and USC SHOULD BRAG THEIR COOLER THAN VIRGINIA TECH Disagree. Think Virginia. Miami and USC done in the last decade to Brag Hey really honest listen Miami you got a really good team. You should be in the top ten I've got you in the top ten what have you done in the last decade to Brag about timeout USC what have you done in the last decade to brag about what are you talking about? Hey, falsely humble better be humble. You've been down in the dirt decade. What is Ricky Martin done in a decade walks into a room he's still cool. Ricky Martin walks into a room. No person under the age of thirty eight years. Old Things Ricky Martin is cool. Okay. Let's go to this. So I'm over Alabama. It's boring but I will say this Oh. Yeah. You know they've only been the best program in College Roy but give me Miami, and USC but Bama is boring what are we doing today Bama? It looks like they're good again in College quarterbacks they're like the only program that is that boring I like a little be honest. Do you watch the chiefs in the SEAHAWKS and Green Bay Wi because they win the right way? They're fun. I. Like Fun in my life I'm not an old suburb Guy Boring I'm going out partying every night. Out. Of Control Album, move your mind today. First of all Steve, Sarkisian offense at Alabama has been more than any other offense in college football this far they might not be leading the country and scoring offense like Texas but you talk about explosive plays down the. Joan No. They've got Joe Jalen Waddell. They've got a Smith. They've got this new kid I. Think it's Msci or however you pronounce his name I'll figure it out. They'd go for seventy five plus yard touchdown. Apparently folks on your TV is not exciting these down the field throws. We've been able to run the football. You know even being ranked number one in the country at some point in every season in the last twelve years that's boring to good old Colin give him some USC futility they haven't done jack in a decade but boy there ought coast Tuscaloosa. What have you got on USC apparently this long touchdown for running away from the defense. This is this is just Today I came up here. I was looking forward to a cordial conversation and we get this USC is, is all the rage in Alabama's warring rob stone makes you ve he's very nice. I've got an edge to me that makes everyone uncomfortable and you're just GONNA have to deal with this show the new shows jury pointed line between uncomfortable edge and Weirdo. There you go. So let me just say this so your top ten. Ohio State Alabama Florida Georgia Miami Penn State Notre Dame Oregon Oklahoma state everybody opted out for Oregon's offense. They're no good I. Know You'RE GONNA win that everybody on their offensive line there seat didn't receive one vote in the People Oregon Oregon's got some trouble by the way with their offensive line there. Saying they opted out. Florida. Georgia is going to be an unbelievable game. Georgia looks really good but just pump your brakes on the whole like Georgia fans, Georgia fans, they're like, oh. He's he can national it was one game. He had a run game in a great defense like just wait on the whole stemmed ben it's going to be just fine. Okay. Let me ask you this. Let's go back to Tom. Herman boy. was going in I. Want Honesty on this one. That's all I give you. A truth bomb in your face every Wednesday Oklahoma beat Texas by two touchdowns are the regents and Texas getting on the phone and making plan. They always say you're fired a month or two before you're fired. He'd lose his two touchdowns they can't stop. They lose to a freshman quarterback with us. upper-class quarterback are the regions at Texas getting on the phone and saying. Jimmy Sexton give us a list. Jimi Saxons a big age in college football I don't know. The context of covert is making coaching decisions so much different with the budgets where they're at with all these for even even for a place like Texas. So I don't know that's a good listen. That's the that's the best question you've asked all day. And I don't have a good answer for you. I personally think Texas is on the right track. I. Love Their coordinators. They should win the I mean they should have one last week I. Don't know why they didn't want quarterback how. Hey Goulet. Sorry to bother you. Sleep back there. Could you give me the line on Texas Oklahoma Fox Bet I'M GONNA guess I'm GonNa Guess Right. Now Texas would be six and a half I would say Texas four. I think Texas favored by four Houston Texas had to wake up his computer he's looking. The division knocking over that use that of the Yankees bullpen he's on that thing all day I left a company with nine bosses who were on the Yankee website all day. Come on Goulet I'M GONNA guess. What is it what you got? What was your guest? My guess is Texas minus four and minus six and a half. Just so Oklahoma minus two and a half Oklahoma's favored. Wow. I gotTa tell you right now. I'm going to. I'm going to bet vox. Berg did that. I'm going to bet on Fox when I get home I'm going to. Bet. Taxes plus the points and Tampa Bay minus the points against the bears tomorrow. That's my super. Since I'm doing the game I'm not GonNa Bet, did you say Herman was good as an underdog? There you go. He's an underdog. Yeah. But he's ranked in the opponent isn't eleven and six in such Goulet Paulo along here we did this already that's the most losses in such game since two thousand and seventeen started strong today kind of tape I. Tell You something says something weird is happening up here US's Alabama or way what did you say more exciting I guess losing is more exciting than winning folks joy and I don't know no joy was giving you a weird look when you were bringing up this strange. I. Is Better Than Alabama. No, they're more captivating. I like Cabriolet win a tree is more captivating than ballet right now. But when USC is good, they're more captivating than Alabama absolute there La's La Their Miami it's fun they're. They're obnoxious. Well, we know that you love Miami listen the you invented swagger. Okay. Detroit. So I don't disagree with that. I love when Miami's great it just they just they're just in your face I mean, you know I grew up in Denver son of marine, Alta programs been number one in the country at some point every year in the last twelve years you know consistency the things that we used to really marvel at in this world consistency sound like you're running for office right there.

Watson at Clemson was asked if he would be interested in reuniting with his former quarterback in Houston but he wouldn't even. Entertain the question saying that is not even anything I want to have to think about the odds for the next Texans head coach Eric the enemy and Josh. mcdaniels tied plus three hundred according to Fox Bet Robert Saleh at Plus Four Fifty Arthur Smith offensive coordinator for the titans. WHOEVER GETS IT Arthur Smith has done a really good job tannahill. He's done a really good job to you know. Whoever gets this is going to have to make a tough decision no draft picks no cap space. You've gotTa Move Jj Watt who by the way. Once those teams get in that Super Bowl bubble and you get into you know right after the trading deadline and the Ravens and the niners and the Seahawks, and they're like they make it work and I think Jj Watt will give you a draft pick and cap space outside the left tackle and Shawn Watson to me. You got to move some people but that's Going to be a decision for whoever the interrupt coaches because none of these guys are going to be there until next year. So I. If you have the the main thing, right? You have the Shawn Watson. So start there start looking at some of the left tackle a pro build up tackle so you have that and everyone thinks this Shawn Watson is legitimate franchise quarterback in an be comma huge talent and has the testing sleep but there's there's so much else that you have to build like they are now in a rebuilding situation but I would I would argue if you give me a great quarterback in a great left tackle, then it becomes a good job. All the other stuff draft picks cap space Duke Johnson. Let him go get another running back did they've got some players that are? Good Jj Watt Duke Johnson they're good but you're gonNA. have to make tough decisions and JJ Watt, as good as he is past his prime but he's good enough for a playoff team to go. Okay. We'll pay for two years I think and again Jj Watt also deserves the right to not play for a team in chaos and a rebuild. He deserves the right to play for Patriots or Raymond. Abbas taking this job though Dabo Yeah I think he's a college coach and he's a great calls coach. Mick Stephen's College. He could potentially work in the NFL but the way. These, guys that like to kind control everything in this in this climate making the jump from college to the NFL, you want to go to kind of a stable situation like Joel Klatt was just talking about how there's going to be that many not much movement at the coaching position in college right now, if you have a long term deal in college the. These next couple of years might not be the time to jump to the NFL and be in a situation where the NFL is far less forgiving calls when it comes to the job civility Josh Allen. Has Been Great so far this season leading the bills to four no, the since the for their first start since two, thousand, eight and Brett Farve. Sorry these lies. Far already seeing Alan as the next superstar and Josh Allen will be the new Tom Brady. At some point, he will be running the division that kid is a tremendous talent he can swing it. Can move for big I can really move. But more than anything what we're seeing now is. He's taking it to the next level. Look. Great. But the the AFC is going to be very different over the next couple of years. Now obviously, we expected things to be much much better for the jets this year than they are going, but the dolphins have to which we're going to see within the next couple weeks all I know is this I look at the AFC right now. CBS has the AFC you're going to get for the next ten years. Patrick Lamar Josh Joe Borough, and if Justin Gilbert is as good as I think. Like. Justin Herbert. What did I say? Justin Herbert like I I look at the AFC right now man some of these quarterbacks and and they're to Shawn Watson you're you are set. That's like Manning Brady Big Band twenty, eighteen years ago like the AFC has got some because these teams have been bad. The bottom of the AFC's been worse than the bottom of the NFC. So. They get all these quarterbacks in about two out of three or hitting. And we don't know where we're GONNA Suwa. To try and. I think Cam Newton to show the value that he has with the Patriots and he's not old no no. No, he's not. I have some thoughts after this I think Cam dot himself. Is going to get himself an extension here. Josh Allen He's been incredible and what and the bill that's the bills division right now to lose. But I don't know I don't know that we'll ever see the dominance that we had with the Patriots Oh God. Oh God no not division no, not that they were not amazing. No one's taking away what they did but the being in that division, they had two dynasties current dynasty that doesn't work that way speaking of that division. Sam darnold injured his shoulder in last Thursday's loss to the broncos looked looked like he was going to be out for the season the way. But. He did come back in. He will miss this week's game against the cardinals and he is considered week-to-week going forward. and. Joe FLACCO will get the start and his place. Yeah that is. I don't think it should be able to fling a quarterback that I honestly don't. Well, they're pretty much as protected as they can be, but he really doesn't need to take back. He doesn't just go down in that spot. He tried to stay up a lot longer than he did, which is why ended up getting thrown down like that but. It's obviously not his fault he got injured. This is not a good situation for the jets. There are six donald doesn't start. We know how it went last year when he was out LACO hasn't made his last start for the Broncos since October. Twenty seventh when he suffered his neck injury and he didn't play for the remainder season. So Felipe for the jets going forward there you go joy with the news. Well, that's the news and thanks for stopping by. Heard lie. By the way ESPN yesterday projected based on schedules momentum current record. WHO THE DRAFTS GONNA look like. Coming up based on division toughness and all this stuff Giants will draft I. Jets Will Draft Second Jacksonville draft third and Washington football team will draft fourth two of the four are taking a quarterback. Three of the four is probably likely four or four as possible, and that tells me Cam Newton's getting an extension. Because year cams going to be thirty one and does have a history of injuries I don't think the market is going to be massive. Secondly, there's just not many teams that need a quarterback we're filling all of them. So I don't think it's going to be a robust dynamic market for him. Number two is did you see stood him in Harare on? Monday night. Bella. Checks not rollover that nonsense and number three is good and it works and they're really only a deep threat away from being I to me a nightmare for Kansas City in Baltimore. So I when I look at that, if you start looking at the draft order and you got Jacksonville Dwayne Haskins move, they're taking one Jacksonville is going to take star over Gardner Menchu I. Think the giants would move off Jones the jets. One of those two will move off their quarterback. There's your top quarterbacks. So I don't think new New England could trade with the chargers or in Atlanta or troy get to like six or seven and cross your fingers that the giants and the jets keep their quarterback but nobody thought the giants and jets would be this bad. We knew the giants would be a rebuild but being this bad and the pressure in New York. And the TV ratings in New York being all time lows in New York for the NFL it feels like to me cam is not renter. He's not a rental I. Think he's going to get a contract extension because I don't think New England can get up there and frankly it's working i. mean I said this if cam was playing Monday against the chiefs that game would look different they had they didn't even get officiating. Breaks. So I, think cam and Bella check it's different but I think they're a a deep threat of vertical threat from being a nightmare. If you asked Andy Reid today, who do you don't WanNa play he'll play. Baltimore. They've seen that three times don't WanNa play camera New England they no interest playing Cam in New England again especially when you beat New England earlier ballot check rarely loses twice in one season to the same team. Right, Tristan Thompson looks like we're GonNa have ourselves an NBA champion again in Los Angeles and again it's Lebron James Tristan Thompson and NBA for almost a decade and good friends with Lebron going to be joining us next.

And unfortunately late Eddie van Halen passed away yesterday some music from Van Halen the rock and roll of my childhood. Spent Ninety minutes yesterday smiling and listening on Youtube Old van Halen, and I think a lot of guys my age did. COOLEST guy on the coolest ban for the longest time want to know what's really scary gyco. It's GEICO wing get your insurance rates right now. GEICO DOT com see how much you could save on Car Insurance Tristan Thompson has played for almost a decade in the NBA and he got to four straight finals with Lebron. He is nice kind enough a nice enough to join us. So I was watching last night and boy Lebron and Anthony Davis and Rondo all those veteran dudes down the stretch six minutes to go or playing like grown man defense and their body language changed it is. It's so that's why the NBA. When the when the veteran guys Rondo is not the same player was six years ago but he's playing real defense and I want to ask you about Lebron though what is the difference between Lebron I watched last night and the Lebron you played with is there a difference to you? I think Lebron now is is more skilled player I think. I would say more Miami I. Think his athleticism is God gifted ability and talent kind of separated from everyone to lead by. Lebron, just more skilled. He didn't start shooting until two thousand eighteen. We played against the raptors where you hit like six of those but I think Lebron now was just way more scared. I think he shoots the ball from three much better. He handles the ball much better than I. Think even remember like there's Times where you know he'd give up some threes back in the day or turn the ball over we'll just handling. So his ball handling his way better non he's really appointed out there. Yeah. No, he really is. So he sent a text message to the team yesterday before the game I know it's not the first text message he's ever sent. To his teammates during a playoff series did he send one to you at one point? Yeah we actually got a text message after when we were down three one. In Two thousand sixteen to go to stay, we won game three in Cleveland and then game four. Steph, Curry Klay Thompson Kevin to pick and roll, and literally we we weren't able to make adjustments. So we were down for you want and I think it was around like midnight twelve thirty Lebron's into text message he says. Listen I know we're down three one but if you don't believe, we can win this series. Don't come on the plane the next morning he'll get fly. To San Fran and sure enough myself and Jr. we use some words that are definitely not kid friendly but we said bleed has we're going to be there. We believe we can win and. What happened. Are you surprised at all I have been on my criticism. All Year has been I know Lebron Eighty are great. But I. This is a lot of old guys you know past their prime young guys coups my don't always trust but yet in this finals and in the conference finals, the role players Rondos defense last night I thought was sensational late. You know he's just a dog in these big moments. Have you been surprised at all by the play of the role players in the conference and now NBA? Finals tristen. Honestly call not surprised at all because this makes me feel back when we'RE IN CLEVELAND WHEN It was came love missing games or Kyri not playing in the when we played against the Bulls Atlanta in twenty. Actually Twenty fifty. So this is I. Remember Be Casey. I, remember being Rondo Markeith Morris Coups Mar member being those guys that during the regular season or even begin to players they would say. That to you know Lebron has kyw repeat. Kahlo. But who from those other guys and step up is going to be treasonous be Shumpert jar delivered ova. So I remember being these guys but I think you've gotta get a lot of credit to Frank Vogel, staff I know when I was in Cleveland, we had filled handy assistant coach there that would do our skill bill where I feel like all year these guys have been working on their skill keep getting better. You gotTA give a lot of credit a player's going to individual work because in the playoffs teams are going to gain plan for Lebron Eighty. It's about who are the other guys that can step Up and make big plays and you saw last night Casey was huge. If you remember back when beginning season people were given Casey pl that's my guide like Casey patient and be there get rid of them. Why do we sign and Blah Blah Blah but guess what those? Soviet sainthood are saying that now are like you know what? Thank God for ep Yes we sign them may big place for us and and that's what happens. Guys just work on. They're craft throughout the course of the season because it'll be appointed time with a numbers called and have to make big place. Yeah I was one of those critical Casey. said, he wasn't dependable but I tell you what he's one of these kids. He does not shy away from taking shots. If Lebron gets him the Rock, he will take that shot and let me say a lot of guys shrink I've seen good players like a player Shrink Casey p your does not shrink. He takes the big shot he did last night. And Danny Green's a little hot or cold, but I did think rondos defense late was great. So what do you think was huge? Yeah. Do you think this will do for if they win they still have a game they after one another what will it do for Anthony Davis is reputation if he has a title now. I think you were talking about it early in the place where you know if you look at question eighties fourth quarter production and I think for Ad Indus finals I feel like it's the braids because once he got going fourth quarter, he's he's blocking shots. He's attacking the rim. He's showing everyone he's proven the naysayers wrong and me watching last night honestly made me so happy it felt like. I was I was like his cousin or someone in the family that you. Go out there and on who you really are, what you can do because everyone question if he had in the fourth quarter Kenny make place but look what he did took the challenge of garden Jimmy Bullard getting blocked shots, make plays on defensive and making big shots a jab step three with under a minute left. Those are big time. Oh you're. Not. Afraid of the moment so those are huge fray. Changed the whole narrative how people view eighty and the kids work I'm so happy for yeah. No I think a lot of people are because I think he's a really well liked guy in the league, but he's had some injury issues it it's interesting. Let's say they win Avery Bradley. Opted out, I don't think Lebron was overwhelmingly happy with that I don't know what's going to happen going forward, but it's not a big free agent year. It's not going to be a very good draft. Do you think it? You know the way Lebron thinks he's always tinkering. He's always tweaking if they win the title, do you think we'll see the exact same laker team? Next year will Lebron tanker a little bit. What do you think we'll see what do you think he would need next year to be satisfied going into a season. Well, I think. Anyone I think if I was abroad are I think you look at you look at your roster and you look at what go against next year. You know the guys in San Francisco they got number two pick. Yeah. They can trade it to get another dominant player more than likely. They're going to try to get a big that can make plays, but also play hard on both ends of the floor. So you know they're coming in with Draymond, Green Steph Curry Klay so you gotTa. Look at your Lakers roster and say, okay, how can we match up with with this Golden State team? Yes. What we give credit clippers are great but listen. Splash brothers, but is you gotTa Kinda former team were able to match up well against them? So I think for Lebron. They have the right guards and how would you have done their part I think do any tweaks be very minor ones I don't think it's going to be drastic where you're going to go in and Grab A. Third Star especially with this with the cap and free, he's going to be tough. You know because you're never know sign and traits logistics. So I think for Lebron, is how can we tweak a couple things? Maybe get another playmaker with Rondo or maybe some shooting but I think that's that's kind of the room that they have. So who knows, but I think you got to form a team that can compete against the Golden State Warriors. It's good stuff. Tristan Thompson nine years four titles with Lebron. We're getting close to another one. It. Just it's. It's remarkable to Lebron's going to potentially win. V. Head coach gets to the finals fifth head coach. You know what? You I only have a minute left I. Thought Vogel was great in the last six minutes last night Vogel. Basically said Lebron here the offense pick and roll it for six minutes and and people may not love that I thought Vogel had a good night last night your thoughts. Know Vogel was great last night I think mobile made adjustments from game three. I think game three spoils just through some wrinkles in there that he wasn't prepared for and I think that's part of being a great coach League where you can make adjustments game by game. Coaching some coaches and stuff I played with some stubborn coach and. Just, play harder just players. No. Judgment and bogo realized. Mobile realized you know what I'm a goal, my my og veterans Rondo I know you haven't scored but I know you're creating plays by rebounding and run the offense Lebron two point guard and you're, GonNa make plays and that's what it comes down to identity. When it's the last four minutes, it's OK. Put The ball my best players hands, the guys that I trust on the floor. Yes Danny Green starter this whole seasonable guess what I need Rondo on a game because what he can do on both ends of the floor and create, and he made a big plate and that comes to coaching and believing in what works. So I give a lot of Credit Bogo Bogo I've always allow respect for him and I think people question the hiring but listen they're you know words right now? Yeah. Great stuff trust and I love having you on the show buddy. Thanks again. Have a love being on. Thanks. Tristan. Thompson is interesting when you watch the game last night like Vogel is assistant coach, Jason Kids over there, and he's and with the players and he's talking with a guy and Vogel's nowhere to be seen. He's letting his assistant coach, but it is important. Tristan said there are coaches that are just play harder and I thought with about seven minutes to go i. was going crazy on twitter I'm like okay. Lebron. Ad Lebron needs now along with the touch the ball every time for the next seven minutes I don't nothing against Rondo. He shot some nice threes against Denver. Denver big time moments meant for big time players. This is not Denver. This is the final yes. You win this game. You'RE GONNA win a title like this is not Denver. This is not no no no I don't care what Rondo against Denver I don't want Rondo shooting threes by the way Ronald good rebound or good defender. He got a lap at the end. He's not shooting threes like. This is these moments these these classic like biggest drive in the NFL seventeenth eighteenth hole and a major use the club you can trust you call to play for the quarterback where he's best and Lebron Vogel said next six and a half minutes we're doing pick and rolls you run the offense and Lebron eighty-three all either scored or assisted on every buck rest of the way.

There man and you know what else is good. Oh six fifty eight keys doppler in the air right now. Seventy seventy three degrees in west covina gonna hit triple digits a hundred today ralph. That's right if he wants to wish your sister's happy birthday. We joke at third time so just do national newspaper carrier day l. c.'s in the newspaper business. He's headline presented by franco cacao doodle. Do i can do so yesterday afternoon. I was hanging out at my buddy's office in calabasas junior. Excuse me berry gordy juniors. He's often known orleans. Just you can touch touch it buddy am is office and so <hes> i was sitting there and listening to conversation he was having with a mega mega mega superstar superstore and i had no idea to make it make a superstar was because the dude has stringy hair cut off shirt. You know or board shorts on fluffy just looked like he was dropping off off. The uber eats but he was the drummer from foo fighters. Okay tyler hawkins so after the conference assault listening to our conversation so i was like oh you must you a musician and that's hold on. Don't wanna you know. I don't want to get involved in animal lead out alone because because i have a story that got in trouble once upon a time is so i went into the story about bano and and being over south france in in running him brad pitt and not knowing bono was mono and so at the end of the day <hes> learn that the guy from foo fighters was like huge drummer like one of the best world stadiums a hundred thousand seats. It was crazy but that was keys headline in the morning. You're listening to be a los angeles. All right joined right now by former n._f._l. Fell head coach curley see him on e._s._p._n. Colleague of ours jack del rio joyce on the morning show good morning coach. How are you good morning. What's going on. What's up jackman. I don't off to the call you coach or jack because you know i've been knowing for a long time right right right. Well you know you talk about the former player. It's is jack works fine. If i earn cohorts to. I do a lot of fancy sean. I well so you assets a lot of things. Nowadays you sydney the obviously working for e._s._p._n. Now why you sit back and decide your future if you're getting back into coaching <hes>. Have you decided that that's part of your future. You want to get back on the sidelines. It's <hes> you know. I'm open minded. You know i'm really enjoyed this experience. Being <hes> involved you know from the other other other view you know taking view from the media side covering the game still around the game still talking ball <hes> still watching tate so <hes> staying a and up to date and all that <hes> keeping my options open to be the best way to say it coach not at your on the other side of the conversation. What did you guys get wrong about the media. Well you know you say you guys like in. All of us are as in like players coaches. Which is you had these assumptions about what it takes to be in the media that joni outside when it's not necessarily know well i think i think i grew to appreciate the role of the media plays <hes> my my second time around as a head coach i was you know much much friendlier leear much more understanding that they're really just trying to cup story and they actually can do you a favor <hes> so it. It really helps you to <hes> you know understand what they're trying to what they're trying to get to it. Try and provide them some information so that they can do a good job covering you and i you know perception. The perception is out there. They they have a they have the opportunity to still a lot so <hes> you know so you really don't win those battles when you go get it there and and and go after the media. That's never really worked out for anybody but <hes> for me. I think i learned a second time around. I think i handle myself a lot better. <hes> i'm watching the floor right now and i'm saying he'll learn you know. He's gonna learn these lessons. I mean it's all all young coaches go through it <hes> but he's gonna learn and the scrutiny is going to be there and make the story what he wants to make jack del rio joining us here on keyshawn l z and travis in coach jared goff signs one hundred twenty million dollar deal or excuse me one hundred thirty one hundred ten guaranteed and this is just the the next guy. It seems every time a quarterback comes up. He gets a little bit more than the last guy. The rams are good for the foreseeable future at that position. They entirely comfortable giving him that kinda money after just a short period of time yeah i mean that's a look. The market's not going down. It's only gonna go up so <hes> you know the cowboys are waiting on back right right now and eventually that's going to get done and it. It may be that <hes> that this this deal helps that one get done but <hes> you know. I think the rams are well positioned. They've done a nice job. <hes> obviously you know out there with sean mcvay and and <hes> and what they've done offensively and in helping this young man really developed so <hes> congrats gerry goffin <hes> you know and the l._a. Rams forgetting that done coach jack del rio joining us here on the morning. Show jack like you did it with the raiders. When you were head coach you made a decision to pay car and now he's obviously under different regime with with jon gruden. How do you foresee foreseeing year to the raiders doing especially with car on the last year of the guaranteed money that you've given you yeah well. That was <hes> <hes> that's kind of a complicated one but let me just make it simple. <hes> i think the bottom line is if you protect him <hes> with the weapons. He has if you protect checked him. He'll he'll light it up i. I think he's got a chance to really have a great year. <hes> you know he's an accurate thrower of the ball. He likes. He likes to distribute <hes>. He's a quick decision maker. You know we did a lot of things we won. We won twelve games and <hes> you know he's and ah. I think you gotta you. Gotta make sure you're protecting them. That's the one thing he's like those quarterbacks. No guys guys that are back. They're spending that ball of distributing that ball don't like we get hit and <hes> i think i think you know some are more effective than others when they're getting hit too much and i probably got hit too much last year you know and they've got to make sure showed up protecting him giving him a chance and then and then he'll be able to shine and do his thing and distribute the ball and be accurate and all those speaking of getting hit. There's a quarterback that just got one hundred ten million million dollars. We talked about it from the l._a. Rams but there's a defensive end that got shipped from houston into seattle. How does that change the dynamics in the n._f._c. west which seattle title picking up today beyond clowney and getting that pastor they so desperately need yeah there. <hes> tell you what the n._f._c. west is is all about acquiring defensive line taliban. There's a lot of talent in that in that division so you know <hes> climate going out there. <hes> you know great gets for seattle. <hes> you know i'm not i sure why he fell out of favor in houston but <hes> but obviously they moved on from him decided not to not extend him <hes> and and made moved to trade him so i think you know <hes> p carroll john schneider happy to have him there. I think when you look at what they've tried to do with their front they they they traded frank clark okay and that was created whole but then they they got a endre they got cloudy and then they drafted l. l. j. collier and so those three guys argonne have some abilities and <hes> i'm sure they feel like they've adequately address that. You know what frank clark the departure of that what that would mean to their front so you no. It's a good defense <hes> and <hes> and and i think pete knows what he's doing there. In terms of building the type of player for let's say right here in the n._f._c. west arizona draft after kyla murray that come in with this area system. You've been a defensive coordinator defensive-minded head coach. I'm sure you can't wait at some point to see how this air error rates system is going to work in the n._f._l. How do you think it will fare among defensive. Coordinator is in the league. Well <hes> this acacia right yep so okay so you know as a wide receiver. You would appreciate the fact that i've become an offensive guru. No i'm good so so i appreciate <hes> no. I think this'll be fun to watch you know to see how <hes> cliff kingsbury and and the the <hes> dolphins that he wants to run his rendition of it that he's bringing from from the college game in <hes> with kyla berry. I think it'll be exciting to watch. Watch how it unfolds. I i think it's got a chance to have <hes> a couple of defenses off balance early in the year. I think as the defense let's see what he's up to. I think there's a good chance that they'll slow it down and <hes> much like chip kelly when he first came into the league you know the first few weeks oh yeah f f then teams adjusted and then they didn't really have anywhere else to go. It's kind of he's gonna need somewhere to go once a defense adjust so that'll be something to monitor dr as year goes on jack del rio joining us on the morning show you mentioned the air raid in the n._f._l. What about the air raid at s._e. Graham harrell the trojans going to be able. Is that offense. It's gonna reignite. What's been gone for a minute. I it all depends on the performance of the offensive line. You know to me <hes> i was. I was out there camper for a couple of days. <hes> went out there and saw coach album and the staff and <hes> you know dave campos consultant out there and <hes> clancy pendergast some of the guys that i i went out there in any way saw them. <hes> man there receiver talent is unbelievable. I mean really special. They've got several quarterbacks. I know i know the starter got hurt. <hes> that was unfortunate but i think they've got capable guys there. <hes> skill people so it's really it's really depend on the line. The offense and defensive lines are are to me. You know what should be the foundation of your football team. That's where my concern is. As i watched them work <hes> and they're just need to come come on quick. We're going to develop -veloping and get better goes on and gonna need to play well to give them a chance not not trying to set you up or anything like that jack but would you be interested in college job. If it became available well you are setting me up. I appreciate that listen i i. I'm keeping my options open. Okay best way. I would do anything to support the program. I didn't say any schools. I don't know jackson you've been knowing me. Since i was about seven years years old i all i said if a college job became available. I didn't say any schools. I just said that's all said the. I'm throwing it out there. I am a trojan. I'm gonna do anything i can to support the current staff <hes> but i am opened opportunities in the future in the college programs <hes> around that may come available but <hes> i'm pulling for them to get done there and here and now <hes> jacker. Are you at all surprised. The key did not know who the foo fighters were. That really hurt me on you know when i got on there there are a great rock band and okay you didn't know that the only place you and timmy and all used to take me to see like the rolling stones or the who i never seen the foo fighters nope not at all yeah yeah. That's true yeah. It's been a while. I could see where you buy to let that go. That's jack del really see e._s._p._n. I appreciate it. We'll talk to you soon. Jack all right fellas good talking with <hes>. Does your new buddy who is it is your new guy. Taylor hawkins dave grohl foo fighters. There's food fighters baby. This case sean right now. They coached out really now that it was him i think he will you different voices and so you know even though u._n._l._v. don't have anywhere near the same voice but you got something in common probably didn't want. It won't make sure that it was me black so this case right. Do you feel in the foo fighters ski. I mean his co. Does sound like hoi rock like what horn horn show but you said iraq. We want me say hard rock. I'm not gonna talk like garden tool rock which is yes. Yes guys we get to that. Nugget coach drop off. Okay look did jack del rio just say that he wants to be the next head coach. He said that he certainly leaving all his options open. The college game is intriguing to him. He happens to be a trojan <hes> that the job is not open so he did not put his name in the hat for that job. Okay he did say actually no college jobs open at the moment correct correct me if i'm wrong but at the end he sure know a lot about asta it was about if it comes open at the end of the year. There was a lot of qualifiers at the end about doc. Look if a job age on becomes available at the end of the year there is hope it let let's do this hypothetically to start jack del rio had success says in jacksonville jack del rio had the raiders on the right track before they made the move to go get jon gruden chris the sound of what he said at the end there. Let's take a listen to jack thrown out there. I am a trojan <hes> i'm. I'm going to do anything i can to support the current staff <hes> but i am opened opportunities in the future future in the college programs <hes> around that may come available but i'm pulling for them to get it done. They're here and now he's about around the country jack. Stop college programs yeah 'cause i don't wanna go around the country. I only want to stay in this beautiful sunny southern california. This is a compliment compliment. I mean that was artfully done in the sense that we knew exactly what he was talking about and he didn't say. I didn't mean to set him up. So that's why i say i gotta ask you but you know i don't mean ashley but got it. I want to ask you. Would you be interested in coaching. If you know you can't availa program yet you need to do it. He said the program so ashley is something he wants to do. No one wants to kill clay. I don't wanna cure klay. None of us want to kill clay has a built in excuse so if he comes back the next thing you know that's not gonna work. Their quarterback injured stuff that jake no. That's not going okay. That's only gonna last four. That's going to get you. That's going to get you pass stanford. Hold low seconds go. The question i asked about the air raid remember what he said. He said that will go as the offensive line goes key. That is the greatest piece of code to s._e. Fans that i've heard in a long time. How many times have we had this conversation. You heard me say when s._c. Was at its best here okay. It was those five guys up front. That would just demolish the guys like you go to work right. That's how was having those five guys. It was five guys the n._f._l. Guys the n._f._l. Five guy who's just this wave of offensive offensive line year after year s._c. Was tony boselli and just anthony moon. Yeah i after guy that was a that was a siren to people goes the offensive line because s._c. People know when season it's best bullied online and he knows it and that's what he just said. It's not about air raid. It's what about this that and the next thing. It's about those five guys up front. It is about those five guys and he but he jack certainly knew a little bit about the makeup of the team he certainly knew that they had a a group wide receivers that can rival some of the best in the country and tyler michael pittman in saint round and so many other young guys that they have he certainly knew that they had a deep run at at the quarterback position so you know he certainly paying attention <hes> at the end of the day. I'm sure he'll have some options when this football season finally ends whether it's in rolls roles or college. It's after a while some pro coaches. Get an opportunity to you know to look at some of these college stuff. You can go into college man you you can win. I tell people this all the time you go into college and you win your first three years and now all of a sudden you signed an extension for the next six years dabo sweeney honey million dollars you making more money as a college coach with a little more responsibility then you are in a pros but you can coach college and get extension after every time you look up. College coaches is get extension yeah every time they went to bogey well. We just extended him because other people are trying to poach those coaches from those teams so his is certainly probably on a college college job just which college job it is. I don't really know wouldn't you. Well actually no but i don't know well. I don't wanna be that guy. If you were given a choice and you could go to school high purchase school like obama clemson s c and coaching talking about or do you go to school. There's just a step lower and lock up life for the next twenty five thirty years because he eventually were have now but you can't go to school and go to s._c. Can go to clemson. You got to do something else to. We're gonna tear down below fire fire unit arizona fire. Are you in arizona. No because the expectations of those people see that's the problem with people like you from like eastern michigan and western michigan whatever that school is your expectations are so low that you're satisfy winning six games and going to a mediocre december sixteenth bogan u._s._c. clinton alabama michigan all of those type of programs. Their very expectations are so high that if they don't hold on one sec okay if they don't win at the level that they're supposed to win they will fire you you. You don't wanna go to a smaller level because you have the taste buzz coach at a higher level because you've been there before you've been at the pros guy who's coaching the pros and have the successes jack del rio. It wants to take a job at buffalo university. It just doesn't they don't wanna do that. That's what i was asking. Do you want to go to the situation which you were saying row for for example coach at u._s._c. a lot of pressure where you can still get fired or do you just say you know what i've been in football long time. Let me just ride this out the next twenty years. I'm not a six thousand five five dollars and just frank sola then yeah. Here's the question that you asked jack del rio not not trying to set you up or anything like correct but would you be interested in college job if it became available and that was the first one that was the first one how about the second one here's the second one the program how did say any schools jack jack even nor me. Since i was about seven years old i said if a college job became became available. I didn't say any schools. I just said. That's all you said the just yeah. I just wanted to point ah to help him to help me. I'm sending this to bristol and i wanna ask you were diagnosed. You did not set him up. You set him up to help you. You ask big picture <hes> college football yeah. He said vel programs for him. I mean he's already been linked to. The program sure hit multiple times times. He's interviewed a couple of times. Whatever reasons it didn't happen but at the end of the day i don't want him. I'm not he's a friend of mine so i didn't want him to feel like like he was knifing the current staff in the job although he probably knows what's going on there have leeann but his phone is on speed cut to it if when clay helton is dismiss out so funny and they make the next higher look. There's going to be the next guy eventually. There's going to be an h._r. Is jack del rio. The guy could return u._s._c. Two pac twelve championships rose bowls and ultimately final four who who's all out there all all the big names urban meyer so if are so you make a run in an urban meyer right nervous if i just don't just not what we want to do right now me and shelly his wife we we want to do then the next line. Is jack del rio. Okay jack del rio. I from what i gather. I don't believe ever coached college. Football doesn't mean that he can't assemble staff different rules in place going into a room recruiting doing those things. It's totally different. <hes> there is no scouting combine. You have to be able to understand academics and understand what kids in college do twenty four hours seven days a week unlike the pros so he would be guy certainly on the radar. If i was athlete director i would go after him. A bob stoops mike rick a mark rick <hes>. You're gonna probably throw some mamiya me a jeff fisher stuff who i mean those guys that i would look at everybody but him. I thought you said you were trying to win. See ya but you guys p carroll. It took careful what people think about. It was horrible in his first two coaching jobs with the jets and with the new england patriots but that's not true. He was a solid n._f._l. Head coach but people swear he was the worse did he comes to s._c. He catches fire in a now and the rest is history history. All i'm saying is when you coach you can coach on. I don't believe that jeff fisher is not a guy capable coaching football with the right people around him. That's just me. It is an all request wednesday. It's also hump day wednesday. Keep listening barrage. You tell you when to call in. We got rams sates tickets for rance opening week. That's week two of the season thanks to corona extra corona extra game on lime in guys you know sometimes we give jabe long the voice of the rams a bit of a hard time around here we have of them come in and then mysteriously appears mysterious game markets worried to get <hes> coming on the voice of the rams but we got to give them credit this morning on instagram. He's throwing shade at mike for gloria. Why it's really good so he puts in here. He quotes might fauria there was on the dan patrick show on may twenty johston mike florio about mike mike orioles well. I'm very skeptical about jared goff. I would not be surprised if he doesn't get a second contract with the rams. When did he do that but i don't like. The twenty thurn was year this year but you do realize mike florio half the time doesn't he doesn't know what he's talking about it. I'm i'm one to say that i don't care. We're doing a bit here so credited j._v. long throwing shade using receipts and he says we've got receipts. I think he picked up for months. Yeah that's good. I'm glad he receives he should find them all and post them every last night floreal and you could hear jeb long along with travis as part of rams opening day really yes some damn seven what seven a._m. Seven a._m. Seven a._m. Premium cut down on saturday morning and then we'll seven to ten saturday night. We're supposed to go to keyscafe either all up well. I'm i'm gonna i'm not gonna wait. So why is this saturday sunday. Who's all i know. I heard you say something about going meal saturday so i'm like wait a minute. I didn't invite you invited him. All of no i invited travis just the only person that can go so now you like. I can go if jen's there. You can go wrong well. I gotta be an urban. I'll be going to go down to a big party of the coaches talks with the orange. I will be your right near me right but now that the corrosive volley no. I'm in orange county ca. I'll be there. She got to act appropriate. Though you can't come munir appropriately him yes ask you for miracles and saturday and i'm gonna be warmed up already. Gonna get some extra security. It'll be fine. You'll be fine. You'll be fine guy again. This will be fine. I fit in down here. It's in orange school but show hair and stuff like they've got to figure out how to fix. It cannot bring some talent. You know why because they know no all right. I'm flipping through the the body issue. Of course you've been flipping the last forty five minutes this catcher in dabid daughter who's a cross fit two time champion of whatever she's got more muscles from yeah. That's intimidating to me. I'm from right yeah. I'm conflicted inflicted. Yeah my eligibility all right so jared goff like gbi was saying scientists extension yesterday. Dak prescott is next for sure. Dak prescott is the next guy that's gonna come up and then the next guy will come up and they'll keep setting a new bar right new bar new bar new bar. The question is key. You convince me that the idea of will he get it is yeah. He's got it because he's next so he's going to get the question of should he wrote to performance relative to jared goff that you look at just saying. Is it all the same remember seeing dak prescott in the super bowl. Hey what what happened. In the superbowl double they scored three points and he had the worst gang. Jared goff had the worst game in his n._f._l. Career even worse than when he played with jeff fisher considering the circumstances says they were in the super bowl. He had a bad game but the reason he had a bad game in the super bowl because he went off in the n._f._c. championship retire no it's that he had a bad game. He's got he got to the super. Bowl played really well against this. Also you get with jim. Does won't you get okay. It's a bigger medal title than getting to the second round of the playoffs and lose okay well. I don't give metals alpha losing in the super bowl. I'm sorry i'm sorry you the same as me. We both at the end of the day. We're not the ones holding the lombardi trophy fill in a vacuum and i know that stylistically there are a little different about whether they play the position but are they are. They ju- you have just as much chan. What does it have to be in a vacuum. Why couldn't it be like in a broom or something. It's not a vacuum like in a mop in a bucket in a vacuum are the same guy that i got just as much a chance of winning with dak prescott as i do. I feel that way and i'm sure there's a number number of people after that first season feel the same way when you look at all three he's quarterbacks carson with jared golf and dak prescott. What if any of them done you say well one would do. He lost who went to the super bowl. No one would was on the team. He want to punch game okay. The other guy won a bunch of games. It was just like it's just like all of a sudden. That press guy wins a bunch of games. He gets hurt right before the playoffs and hooper rush cooper rush rush takes them to the super bowl now cooper rush better than that prescott orson okay. It's nick foles better than carson wentz so why would even have that argument humint. Why even say what super bowl. He went as a spectator. No but i'm what i'm doing is. I'm giving credit. Carson wentz would be the quarterback of a team that went to the super bowl same mr. Oh god i can't i can't i can't give i can't give carson wentz credit for super bowl peterson. He never appear true. I cannot on his way in all likelihood the before he got hurt okay and dak prescott was well on his way likely to go to the n._f._c. championship game t renison rams. I mean coined no. It's not totally different. It's not one long got hurt. Okay whatever man at the end of the day. He deserves to make more money than jared goff because he's the next guy. That's the bottom line if you don't like it didn't watch it. I feel travis. This was our our walkout music music. We ran onto the court when i was in basketball high school. Basketball is school. This was it which caesar bees come on now. I was good. I was skinny back then. How did you say what you play. These bs you said high school basketball us on the season two bs on the as not we go sees bees j._v. varsity. I was on varsity the last two years j._v. first year freshman team. I you up for first year. Y'all call y'all a freshman. We call the season bees because they didn't know me. He had to work yeah. I had to work my way up but you know me as i did on this show. I'm a hard worker. Our way in were you work the system. I'm like that rooster. We talked about yesterday. I'll keep chopping drug in there in nineteen ninety-seven guy way back when mo money mo problems nineteen ninety seven debuted this week. Did you know what that was yeah every once in a while not often but yeah i was planning new york was hot hot. This video was amazing to don't remember the video <hes> <hes>. You know what else amazing what let's start with cowboys and zeke. Here's todd archer talking about ezekiel. Elliott's new contract and the cowboys were willing to make him the highest paid runner but they didn't want to do it in fashioned where it was a up at receiver money or clearly near quarterback money or anything like that so this comes in i if you look at it from six ninety fifty million in year a little bit more than what todd gurley got tug early guarantee was forty five million. This one is as i said earlier this morning. It's fifty million so they're in that neighborhood there. In that ballpark where the cowboys can claim victory we did truly over set the market and you can say i'm the highest paid running back both the cowboys anna hannah's yukio elliott or happy with this deal ticket or shake it. Take it take it first then you can go. I think they both are happy. Although i will say this zeke comes out in front based on being the highest pay the cowboys don't come out in front because they wanted to not set the market. They didn't want to go above todd gurley but the member what i told you the contracts right <hes> the backs to the left in in the middle. We gonna slide the contract. If the contract gets to the middle i got my hand on the back full the money that i didn't tell you ahead because i need you so bad on this wednesday to come in. I'm dig dig into that bag of them at a little more to the contract. That's all they did. They already had the money on the left. They wanted to see how bad he was. In terms of staying out the zeki oily how bad ed did kenny stay out kenny sit out he couldn't do it. He couldn't withstand just remember. I told you this from day one. He will not be able to sit out and guess what they got the deal done. He's in. He's happy happy day making money. Let's move forward next. Contract's extension was jared goff. He got his one hundred ten million dollars guaranteed. We've seen carson wentz. Get all of his money. Zeke has gotten his money. Dak prescott is up next if it doesn't happen before the end of the season dak prescott should hold out shake it shake it shake a hey. Here's what i'm going to tell. You and i'm telling you at this time at seven forty four on wednesday. The data zeke goes to cowboys camp bought a four game. This season season that prescott deal be done just bought a four game of the year. It'll be done because at the time because if it doesn't start if it comes into one of them shaky daiki they might they might just sit tight for a little bit but if all of a sudden which i predicted i feel he is going to do glided up. They're going to start talking because he now starts to say all along arkansas just wait. They don't want that. They don't want him wait. They want to get it done and if he starts to show him by week four or five that he looks like the pro bowl quarterback. They'll write jedi if he does have the shaky daiki. Well you know our phone right now. We've got to pay the phone bill. We're gonna just sit happy so the extensions predicated much more on how he does through the first month of the season anything else well. No what it is is extensions dear right now. If you want this but if you want us to do you're asking us to do. We need to see about the first handful of games to get to that point so you need to convince for what you need to convince us us that your worthy of that type of money. That's what's going to happen right back to college football. Here's nick sabin talking about what positive attention can do to your team. I'm trying to get our players to listen to me and said listen to you guys. You know all that stuff you write about how good we are and all that stuff they here on e._s._p._n. It's like poison. You know what i mean like taking poison like rat poison so i'm asking them. Are you gonna listen to me. Are you a list so these guys about how good you are. Positive attention is rat poison for football team taking her shake it. I'll take take in in nick. Sabin is right when you start reading your own press clippings and you start really believing in height and you start a peer magazine covers and e._s._p._n. L. z. granison column pitcher with the dreads on the side and he's writing a big story about you. You've played in one game. You start believing hyper. Sometimes that can really elite cloud your mind about the path that you should really be taken. I mean it just he's. He's a hundred percent right. He is one hundred percent right but there's a new model out there. Oh god he's not because he's old school. It's not that no it's not we're talking about davos well. It's it's the new model is because of social media the business. The structure is is important individual ever to be responsible for their own branding. It's not responsible for the old brand. You shouldn't even be paying attention at garbage. Clayton clayton sports catch up to you. You'll do hassle you. Don't catch any school right there. Why play sports and then mike work out for you to step away from shut up and dribble. I'm not saying please sport play sport art in everything else will catch up to you. Don't try to put the cart before the horse right. Don't don't try to put the cart before the horse. Why why. Why do you guys do that. Why it's coming because the car but you're gonna get it but it comes in waves. It is the first wave we see who you are the second wave your worthy of our attention but if you don't get to the point and get the second way at least cash in on the first way nah i way you'll never if you mess around with the first second and third. Are you know i'd rather get to the second to the third to get to the fourth and fifth. I'll give you those me. I'll give you the fun example taking. If tim tebow was able to take advantage of his popularity he would be a much much richer man today as opposed to just play sports and hopefully a kick in because guess what happened. It never kicked in all right. Here's diana rossini talking about the houston texans in their trade it houston texans are giving up so much. This just reeks of desperation. The saying is you don't go to the grocery store hungry. These people are acting like they're starving at at this point with what they're giving up for laremy tunsil and kenny stills by that being said i just i don't like this plan. It doesn't make sense me. They're not thinking long term this is there's a team that wants to be the patriots right. We always say oh that the patriots of the south this is the complete opposite of what the new england patriots would do making decisions wins now route leveraging their future for the short term decisions and i think this isn't going to this won't work out for them. The deal to bring laremy tunsil and kenny stills to houston was a desperate desperate move. Take it or shake it. Shake it shake it. What was so desperate about the move. You're getting left tackle to protect your franchise quarterback. No left tackle in the draft. Is this guy mary tonsil glare fell in the draft because he had <hes> smoke mask on two three days before the draft that was linked to the yeah that that was leaked by somebody that had envy of him and try to hurt him so he's one of the better tackles that are in in the league so i don't understand then you get a very viable option again for your quarterback deshaun watson and kinney steals that was going to be on his way out of florida because he went against the owner in the head coach based on his injustice in injustice and jay z and all the other stuff kapernick all they got tired of them so they packaged him up and moved so i don't understand why such a bad deal for the houston texas to get rid of today's cloudy which had nothing to do with the tonsil deal right but they they certainly gave up some picks to get larry tonsil to two first rounders and i think at the end of the second was more for kidney steals. Yeah i think at the end of the day they deal with a pulse to protect the left tackle their leader protect. A quarterback quarterback left tackle. This feels to me not so much move desperation but a move of opportunity with andrew luck retiring. The division becomes much more open if i can keep the shawn watson in one piece. I'm the best s. t. They're gonna get better. I don't understand why people and they're not trying to be the new england patriots of the the south just because they had new england's expe coaches coaches there doesn't mean a new england coach is coach with coaches that they know and a half million so of course <hes> o'brien's going to go out there. They get romeo cornell 'cause he. Coach romeo cornell makes all his into the world. Take shaking made possible by blue shoe b. l. u. E. chew dot com.

How to Build Hardware Products by Former Motorola VP of Product

"Welcome to the product podcast byproduct school. Here's a preview of today's talk. When you're dealing with hardware products. And they're not only Harvard as I said, there's hardware software for cloud services, apps nowadays, also to go and so on right. Learn to simplify the problem as an engineer when I was growing up. Everybody would be proud that this already difficult problem, right? And how difficult problems and how smart they were that this all this. Awesome. Awesome challenging problem as a product manager. I hate that. I want to solve all the simple stuff. Right. There is no you should take pride in having success in the product rather than solving most difficult problem than nobody cares about rates that this is a different mindset. Embrace simplicity. Ask yourself. The question is this difficult thing really worth doing rates or anytime? Somebody says I'm doing this thing for the first time this is so difficult. You should really step back and ask the question is it worth doing it? Your flag should be going up as a product manager. Okay. This is a risk if this guy saw smarty saying nobody else's done, this it automatically. There's a pretty high risk here. In this podcast. We teach our listeners valuable lessons about product management and transform them into thinking like a product manager we teach product management coding, data analytics and blockchain fourteen campuses worldwide, including San Francisco, New York and Seattle, you can find more information at product school dot com. Join our slack community of twenty five thousand professionals to network and stay tuned for upcoming events. So I'll tell you how I came up with this this little title for this. There was a partner in Boston who I shall not name, and they used to do a hardware consultancy and when I would walk into their offices right in the front. They had this little plaque that said hardware is hard. Rate. I said. Boy, this is not true. Right. You know, you're scaring people away. Right. So I said, let's go figure out a way to make hardware product soft or like kind of easy, right? And so I said, okay, we need to go do something. And this is where I started kind of going through my head s to. Why hardwood is different how to make hardware? Really easy. Right. So that's what I've been. Working. In my career. So and before we get into. Hardwood, and how hardware products at different than software products, and how you manage them differently. I think it's really important to understand what product management is at the end. Right. You know, when I was starting out my career for most of my kids. There was no such thing as product managers, right? There really wasn't all the companies that I worked at there was no by the title product manager. Right. It was just engineers, and that's it and some product marketing people. And that's all what they used to do and somewhere along the line people figured out. Whatever engineers would design wasn't sufficient in the marketplace. Right. Functionality was kind of the lowest common denominator that you needed to succeed. But you had to go way beyond that right to really have a hit product. And that's how I think really product management at least in hardware product, and the kind of products and consumer electronics that I have been building all started. And so what I call product management in. My view is really about owning the product. What I mean by owning the product. I mean owning the outcomes of product, right? If if the product is successful, then you have to make sure you share the success with everybody who contributed to the product. If it bombs, unfortunately, which a lot of products, do then is the product manager's job to own up to it and say, you know, what I screwed up rate. That's really what it is. And you have to be willing to sign up for that kind of job where you can spread the good stuff and take responsibility for all the not so good stuff that happens. Right. You really have to own up. To the overall success? And by the way, you have to know all everything that goes into making a product successful. Right. So it's not just hey, I'm an engineer now. I'm an engineer. I'm a salesperson. I am a marketing person. I am doing everything. Right. I have to have a good enough knowledge and understanding of everything right? And. And this is the reason why I tell everybody. You know, product management is not something that is taught in school. Really if you go to MIT or Stanford, and you can do a PHD you still have no idea how to build a product and bring it to market, right? Putting a box of cereal on the shelf. I can tell you from experience is way more difficult than doing a PHD at MIT rate. I don't know about any MIT PHD's, but I killed I tell it to them as well. It is actually putting a box of seal on the shelf is way more difficult because you don't learn it anywhere, right? It is extremely extremely difficult. You're going to have to use kills. That nobody ever taught you right? You're going to have to learn a lot of this. And there's no other way other than experience rate and having gone through the process of few times, I'm going to learn the hard way. And this is the reason why when I heard of product school, I was so happy that least there is somebody who is willing to impart the knowledge and the experience, right and telling training people shooting than wealth of knowledge that exists how to go Bill products. Right. And by the way, every product here that you will see has an interesting story behind the these are all products that I have built I have some samples to that. I'm very happy to share. But the stories behind them are actually very interesting, and they're all examples of the success took a lot of product management. In fact, how these products what he would conceived had a lot to do with. Really with product management at the end a lot of the innovation that happened was in product management rather than jeering rate. So we will come back to some of these. And I'll tell you stories on these as as time permits so before I get going, right? You know, let me tell you how I got into product management because I think that's an. An interesting story. So I I still consider myself. A geek, I'm a geek, I love to geeky stuff. And when I was at Motorola, I had this little skunkworks project going on right? Which is I was involved in very early before, you know, when I was still in school in doing WI fi rate know before it was called by. So I always had this. I was doing cellular now I still had a little affinity towards doing by and on my with my little team of two or three people. I'm working on this. Hey, I would be cool to voice over IP or wifi. This is like twenty years ago. Right. People said, this is a piece of crap noble. You could never do this technically it will never work. Right. So we filed maybe a dozen patents. We said I wouldn't built a prototype and said, yeah, look at works. And by the way, it's actually pretty cool. So one of our senior peas I convinced him. Hey, this is very cool. Maybe it can be a product so Sanjay. You know, what your geek? You really don't understand anything about selling this thing. Let me go. Find you somebody who understands business to work with you. So let's go make a product, right? So. He he goes the asks. He spent six months looking to find somebody who's gonna work with Sanjay to go. Bring this phone with by voice over IP to market guess what happened? Right. So I have this thing and in those days about twenty years ago. Right people are spending billions of dollars buying spectrum. And they look at this. Why fi stuff which is free and you're going to do free calls. Like, are you guys? Crazy. No chance right. No chance. We're going to ever let you do anything like this. In fact, they became openly hostile right? All of these friends at all these carriers in the US who I knew very well right in at very senior levels. They look at me and Sunday you our biggest enemy here right now rate. We're not touching this. We're going to kill this thing right here right now, we're going to fill it out. We're gonna figure it out. So none of the business guys wanna touch a work with me. So. My boss's boss comes to me and says sandy after six months of trying very hard to find somebody. Signed. I can't find anybody who's willing to work with you and risk their careers to do this with you because they have no business. There's no chance not only. They don't believe in this. They're going to actively be like killing this product. So you had to society. Okay. There's only one option, right? There's nobody who's willing to work with you. Because of you because of all this other stuff that you doing there's only two options. I have either kill this thing or you can go run the business yourself in go, do whatever you feel like, right? So I thought about it for a second and say, no, you know, Bill just give it to me. Let me try my hand at it. Right. I'm a geek, I tried this. And I said, you know, what let me go figure something out. So that was my first thing. Learning to take technology and make it into a product. Right. And they were rent to any school. I never had any training nothing. Right. I just got thrown into the deep end with a long rope that I thought was I was going to hang myself with at the end, right? That's what everybody talk is going to happen. So this is the world's first phone with voice over IP and wifi. This is about eighteen years old four now, maybe seventeen right? And the first phone in the US that actually was running Lennox and Java so precursor to Android, really, Android. You know, a lot of Android came out of here. So we'll I I'm happy to pass this around probably doesn't even pyre power up anymore. But this is my favorite phone because this is my first my first product, right? So we'll come to this in a second. But let me share with you by philosophy of product management. Right. I told you I didn't go into any school. So I just made this up as I was based on my experience, right? For any product to be Wayel right for you to succeed as a product manager. There are three things that you have to always balance. Right. And you have a line. The study one of them is not balanced. You are in trouble. Since I'm a geek, I'll start with the feasability right feasability. What I mean by feasability is technically. It's doable. Right. You're trying to do something that you're not violating fundamental laws of physics, or it's not going to kill people and all of this other stuff that can happen. Right. So it has to be technically feasible. But being technically feasible doesn't mean it's a good fraud act to do great. The next thing you have to worry about and you can do this in any order doesn't matter is. Somebody has to want it. Right. If nobody wants this product, maybe technically feasible who the heck cares about it. Right. It's not worth doing if. Nobody cares about it. Nobody wants it. Right. So you have to worry about what I call Meads needs of your customer needs of your partners, whatever other needs requirements in the marketplace that you have there has to be some demand somewhere, if you really strongly believe you can actually try and create demand to but you have to solve that piece. Right. But that it self is having a need, and, you know, being feasible to do doesn't necessarily mean you still have a product. What is the most important job in business? Yeah. Exactly. You have to make money, right? Business exists to make money. If you can't make a business. I'm not interested in it to be honest to right? I'm in the business of making money. We should remember this. Right. This is why a product managers biggest job is to make some money for the business. So you better figure out a way to get some return rate. You have to make some money. What it means is you can make money by selling it for more than what it took to create it. Right. It's pretty simple stuff. So this is the triangle that you have to balance, right? You have to be able to make money, right? So. You have to be able to make money you have to be able to build it and somebody has to want it and all three of none of this. One one is not more important. The other all three of them are equally equally important. If you have enjoyed the episode so far checkout are upcoming live events at product school dot com slash events. Use the promo code product podcast in all caps to get a free ticket to the next event in your city. So what did I have? What did I do? How did this thing? You wouldn't come to life than raid? So the first thing that I did was I'm scratching my head and saying, okay. So certainly every customer that my business talks to this early. Don't want it, right. I think the consumers wanted that was at least putting myself in the shoe of consumer who doesn't like free who wants to pay money to a carrier, right? Nobody wants to right? So I think I can create some demand. But I just don't know how to make any money and do anything. So I scratched my head a little bit. And I realized you know, what maybe there are some people who don't own spectrum who may want something like this. Right. So guess what? I did. I went to all the cable companies, right? Comcast and cable vision all these companies who want to offer mobility who want to offer. You know, smart cool looking devices rather than those crappy old phones, right? And you say, look, you can have this thing in by the way, it can be a really cool service that you have and your offering some Wieser AP stuff already right at your home. You can have a form factor that looks like this, by the way, it can also have cellular in it. And they said, you know, what? Yeah. This is cool. I'm willing to pay something. Right. So I actually created a model where I could satisfy the need, but I have to go through a different channel to sell my product, right? Who are going to? And these guys have the money who can allow me to sell a few million of these. I can make some real money. Right. So that's the important thing about here is really you have to balance all three at the if you don't balance all three of them, which is the technical feasibility, which is the first challenge at least from my background, right? Having a consumer need customers have to want. It. Right. It's very difficult to get a customer to spend one hundred dollars out of their pocket. It's way more difficult than most people realize, right? Just because something is cool. Nobody spent one hundred dollars on it. And then you have to be able to to make money. And by the way, that this part is actually not just specific to hardware, by the way. It's the same principles apply. This kind of pry, call it by product management one one right hardware-software any product you build it better. Meet it better. Learn how to balance these three requirements, right? That is absolutely the fundamental part. Okay. Very good. We'll come back to product management in a second. But this is an important lesson that I learned, you know, and certainly. A geek like me this was a little bit of a revelation rate, which is. Doing the job right there. A whole set of different behaviors that you have to exit to succeed, right? And one of the most important skills that I would end courage, all if you become really really good at is learning how to sell. Right. You know, people think if your business car salesperson or sales engineer or sales, whatever only then you need to learn sales. Right. This was again, one of those that I had in my head to write like seals is beneath me. No, no, no, no, no, no. You're very apart. You don't realize right. Every person is always selling something great. What you may be selling different. What you're expecting in return may be something different. But it is. You're always every day, you're selling something, right? And engineer is selling his idea. He's looking for acceptance rate a product manager's job if you break down is all about selling. Right. He's selling an idea of vision of his product to engineers, tell selling his vision of a product to his CFO or the CEO why this could make money selling the concept or the product that he wants to build to consumers, and he's going to sell it very differently. In fact, this is probably the most important job of a product manager. He is selling a lot of different people with a lot of different expertise. He's going to have to learn to talk a lot of different languages very quickly. Right. How you sell to an engineer, and why do you motivate an engineering team to build a product for you is different than go talk to the. Right or go talk to somebody who's actually going to buy this product or go talk to the distributor. Go talk to the channel. Why should a retailer stock this product and put it on their shelf rate? It's a product manager's job to manage this entire product. So what I would really encourage everybody. Right. Never lucite of this fact that. Learning how to sell. Is a good thing. Right. We all better get really really good at and you we can all be very good at selling by though, you just have to realize what are you selling really asked the question. What am I selling today when you go to work in the morning think about what are the two things are going to be selling into whom and how best to sell it to that person having that clarity in your head is extremely important for success? Right. So it's a very very important skill and something that everybody needs to know it. But for a product manager, you will not be able to do your job. Well, until you learn how to become a really really good salesperson and learn to sell it to different people with very different motivations at the end. Right. So extremely extremely important. And I say it is an absolutely necessary skills, not sufficient you can still fail. But if you don't. Know how to sell you will never succeed. Right. So this is like in my geeky, wait necessary, but not sufficient condition, right? Where are you? Good. Okay. So now, let's talk about what makes hardware different. Right. And a lot of you know, there are lots of books and lots of stuff that you will hear about product managing software products. Right. And when I look at it and say, okay, why can't I apply all of the same principles that I learned to managing hardware? By default. You should always. Yes. You can apply. Everything that you've learned. Right. That's that is where you should start from. And then you can say, okay. What makes hardware different than software, and how do I adjust what I know? Great. So here are a few things that make hardware a little bit different. I'm not saying it's difficult. It just a little bit different. Once you understand what the differences are Yuna how to manage those. Right. So don't let anybody tell you hardware is hard. No hardware is just Dolittle different. Maybe. Right. So the first thing is. Everybody. Now knows right. Nobody's doing waterfall product of maybe building airplane or you're sending a rocket to Mars or something, right? We're all doing it right of product of right? And that's what we do in hardware to nowadays. Great. So I have never done a waterfall for any hardware in my twenty plus years building product Ray, what is different in hardware, though. Which is from software is eat it ration- takes time. Right software interational. I don't know. How often do you in your experts you bills? You could be doing them every day. You could be doing them every week. Right. I don't see anybody who doesn't do a Bill at least a full Bill every week is doing software. Right. When you're doing hardware. You don't do an iteration every week. And the reason why you don't want to do it ration- every week is it takes time. You're going to have to build new housing. You're going to have to Bill boards, and you're going to have to do some surface. Mount Bill PCB's and all of this other stuff it takes time. Right. And even if you could do them. Very often or every week. Sometimes I've had to do that. They get very expensive very fast rate because you need a whole man if some kind of manufacturing line, you need twenty people to sit down assembles does a whole bunch of other stuff now in the last few years. Some things have improved by the way. Now, I can do three D printing that wasn't necessarily away lable fifteen years ago. Right. So some of my mechanical and ide- form factor. Prototyping has become a whole lot easier than it used to be. But still I think until we have some fundamental innovation happen, you can rest assured that look hardware iterations are going to take longer. And their way more expensive. Right. A typical iterating. I will tell you. If you're going to build in the US probably about four weeks, that's the fastest you'll be able to do for any kind of mass production. If you go have to go to Asia, you probably six weeks, right? Because just building something is not sufficient, then you also have to test it and do all this other stuff. Right. So it takes time before you can have good feedback. And now, I know what I what I need to do differently. Right. The other part, which is different is manufacturing and supply chain. Right. When you're building software replicating pieces of code is very easy. Right. It can happen instantly. If I have one rigid, and I have to build a thousand. There's no machine that knows how to replicate them in like, two seconds. Right. It may take you. You're not have enough parts. You would not have components. You've been not have you find out or you run out microprocessors memory or even a little screw. That is missing stops. You from building a product. Right. So that's another level of complexity just manufacturing supply chain cost all of those things become issues. That software doesn't have to deal with. Right. So you have to really plan for all of this stuff up front, right? And understand how it's going to impact. How you're managing your processes the other part that. Maybe a little bit uniquely challenging for hardware is regulatory and safety concerns right software. Yes. You have this GDP stuff. Now, you have to worry about it. There are some things you have to worry about. But for hardware. It goes through the roof. You're worried about Kenna kid eat some of these parts can kid pull some stuff out will if you have a radio in it you need to get certification. Sees you know, there's no lead in the paint, no harmful chemicals here. It doesn't catch fire. The so many different things that you have to deal with every country. You sell is going to have its own regulations rate. This is just what we have to deal with. Don't get intimidated by it. It's all relatively simple. You just gotta plan. You just have to know. Right. Getting your arms around the problem is what is the most important. Don't let it be also prizes. A we before you're launching. Oh, I didn't get approvals to sell this product in India and. I have all my advertising agency and everybody already and to go, right? You can't do that. Great and regulatory and safety concerns are. Landmines that a lot of people forget, and by the way, some of the stuff you don't realize to actually build a product and you test and say, you know, what emissions are not meeting rights radio missions are too high. It's going to interfere with my radio TV or wifi. And I can't launch it Ray. So you really have to mitigate all of those risks early in the process. This is what makes hardware different, but it can be all planned for and then. You should always remember hardware products. Almost always at least. I haven't built a Harvard pride in a long time, which didn't have some foreign where and software and cloud and all of this other stuff to go with it. Right. So in the end a product is this full system rather than I built my PCB, and I built some stuff and I'm good rate. So don't think in a hardware product manager doesn't understand all of the other stuff. Absolutely. You have to understand your job is to the overall success of the product. Right. You have to learn how to do the whole thing. Okay. That was before you even launch it. What happens once you launch it? And this is where I say hardware is probably the most challenging one. When you're building hardware in today's world. You only have one opportunity to get this thing, right? Right. Once you ship a device, you can't change its color. Right. You can't change its form factor. You can't change and say, Oops, I forgot to put a micro USB on this. Or I put some something small, right? Something could be really really small nothing. You can do about it. It's all gone. You built a million of these or whatever and. You cannot update them software. Right. You have a software you find a bug in it. You can have a update roll around the next morning, and everybody's happy. Right. You can do live AB testing, Google and Facebook and all these guys are doing in hardwood. You can't do this thing in the field. You have to have a different level of confidence. When you launch the product, right? You can't have one hundred million flavors of everything you got to decide. What other things are going to do? And how you're going to do this. Right. And then. Anytime you build hardware, and this is what scares everybody, by the way. Is inventory in software when you build software. There is no inventory, right? You know, you can do replication of code on the fly, and you can ship it on the internet and everybody has it right? When you're building hardware. You got plan for it. You gotta decide how much I'm gonna built how many parks of my going to buy right, and too little if you build a little then you got a customer demand that he can't satisfy leaving money on the table right business wants to do this. You build too much. The problem is even worse. I've had situations where you have ten million dollars in venture sitting in a warehouse and saying scratching what am I going to do with this rate? The fourth time you as a product manager has to deal with it emotionally. You got ten million dollars of something sitting in a warehouse. And you say holy cow. I can't ship this, right? You're going to have a sleepless night, and you better get learn how to get comfortable with that. Right. Because if you can get comfortable with it, you won't be able to figure out how to deal with that situation. Right. The stress is just going to kill you. Right. So it's very difficult. It's very difficult. This is these are really the the challenges of you can try and mitigate it, right? This is why you can do or the air update for four on most of these products. Now. Right. That helps it can fix bucks. The worst thing that can happen is right, which has happened to me once by the way, which is you launch a product and the government or somebody comes and says, you know, what? You're going to have to recall there is a problem. Right. You all heard of recalls right recalls are the ugliest ugliest situation that you can ever imagine. When you're building a hardware product that government says or somebody says, you know, what are you decide yourself? There's a bug consumers really unhappy about this. And you're going to have to recall, it, just please the risk is so high that you have to say bring it all back. I'm gonna it's it's a it hurts your brand name. It hurts your bottom line turps, your own personal reputation hurts everything right? Nobody's going to be happy. So the threshold that you have to think through a product manager says, you know, what I'm ready to launch this product. Right. That's a lot of burden if you just sit back and just think about it. Right. A week before maybe the night before the product is going to officially launch. And you're gonna stand on stage, and you're gonna show this beautiful piece off and everything. You have to make a decision is this product ready or not right? And this is not a five ten dollar hundred thousand dollar decision. Usually, it is we're talking millions and millions of dollars, right, depending on the scale. It's not for the week of heart rate. And I've had to make decisions. Right. And you know, I'm gonna tell you another secret, by the way, no product, the hardware software that I know has ever launched where you can say there are no bugs in this thing. Right. There's not one product that I've ever done that. I believe nobody's ever learned that you can say with certainty that there are zero bugs in it. Every product in my experiences, sit down the day before you launch or the week before you launch with your quality team and say, okay, tell me all the bike that there are on this list. Right. And they're going to walk me through signs every got twenty bugs in this thing, and this whole laundry list of stuff and you as a product manager. Has to decide to a launch it. We're not launch it. Right. If you launch it. And it has real problems. You got a face, right? If you don't launch it your CFO saying, okay, sandy where is the product. There's all this money and revenue and margin that we were expecting, and it's on our books and the whole market and the street is expecting it. Where is it? Right. This like no-win situation. So you really got to make these tough calls as Challah product manager that nobody else's job. It's a product manager's job to figure out. What is he or she going to do at that point in time? And this is what makes hardware different, right? It's the little stuff that makes hardware difference. Not literally becomes big. It just requires you to have a different level of maturity and confidence in the product that you're gonna launch right? And for this reason, you have to put processes in place where you can get validation of your product before you launch it. Right. So one of the things that at least. That I do is. We talked about iterating, right? I've never launched a hardware product without doing at least three iterations rate. And by the way, if you if you say my product is perfect and the fourth iteration, then I said, there's something wrong with the process because that means you're not taking enough risk in that product. Right. So simple that you could get it. Right. And the force is probably not worth doing. Right. So I at least every product that. I do I would say you should plan for three to rations, right? The first duration is I'm building. I have a vision of my product, I kind of wrote down a product requirements, document, whatever and I build it the engineers go build it. Right. And they India's most of the time will say Sunday. This is how we spent the feature and we built it. Whether somebody needs it or wanted a different situation. They'll just say this was the spec, and I built this and they're very happy. Great. So the force ration- is to just say can the engineers build what they said they were going to build a what you told them to build, right? And I let what I call engineers do their engineering testing on it, right? Can they at least built to what for spec doubt on a piece of paper rate? I never give that engineering Bill to a customer ever rate. One of the things that I learned in hardware is is easy to tell a customer the product doesn't work than to give somebody half working something because then trying to tell why it doesn't work and all of this stuff is such a big mess. They will just they were not trust you. It's easier to tell them it doesn't work, and I'm not ready to give it to you. And they'll be fine with it. Maybe they want me to happy, but you can manage it but managing half working product or a half working sample is looking for a disaster. Right. So never do that. The four situation is always, hey, look, this is for my own internal testing. And we're going to do it that way, right? Me if I'm running January as well. I would get one or two samples to see how it's doing what additional feedback that I can get. But again, this is just kind of in the family at that stage. Right. The next generation that I build is something that I say an I insist on. Let's give it to some people who don't have an emotional attachment to this product rate. You know, me and my junior team. They all are emotionally had this is our baby, right? We're never going to call it ugly. It's important to have some people tell you, you know, what this is wrong. This is wrong. And this could be better. And this other could be better. Right. It's good to get this independent feedback. Because if you wait till the end, and he launched this thing is could get really ugly, very fast. So better to get feedback. Earlier other than after you spend the millions and millions of dollars. Right. So you let it out you give it to some people who don't believe in the product give it to your friends or family, right? I've always given a lot of the price. I was in consumer electronics. I give it to my kids and say, go use it, right? Just don't go put a picture of it on the Instagram or something else, but you can go use it and tell me what you think and my son is sitting there smiling. Right and kids have given me the ugliest feedback raid. My wife has given me feedback my engine. Here's families have given us feedback that you say, you know, what why did I not think of this right because they are not attached. They're not thinking of it from the way, you think the right? But that's my easiest way for me to really get consumer feedback in whatever little science experiment that I can create. And you sit down with all of that feedback. Good and bad and ugly. And then a product managers job is to go proud is it right? And said these three things can be done these five things can't be done. If I can't do these five things do I still launch this product or do? I just kill this product. Great. I've actually I've had cases where I kill the product based on the user feedback that we got. And we said, you know, it's not what launching it. You're just waiting. It's a recipe for disaster. Waiting to happen. Great go back to the drawing board. It's better to do it. Go back to the drawing board. Then rather than launch it and then lose ten fifteen twenty thirty million dollars. And then have to reengineer it in any case, you waste time, you waste money and. You're kind of in a snake and ladder game. Right. You're back to square one again. So these are all the things that you really have to have to worry about. Okay. So I'll tell you what I have learnt. In my years. And there's a lot of learning. I could go on for like hours on the stuff rate. When you're dealing with hardware products. And they're not only hardware as I said. There's hardware software for cloud services, apps nowadays, also to go and so on right. Learn to simplify the problem as an engineer when I was growing up, right? Everybody would be proud that the solve difficult problem. Right. And how difficult the problem is. And how smart they were this all this. Awesome. Awesome challenging problem as a product manager. I hate that. I wanna solve all the simple stuff. Right. There is no you should take pride in having success in the product rather than solving most difficult problem that nobody cares about rates. This is a different mindset. Embrace simplicity. Ask yourself. The question is this difficult thing really worth doing rates or anytime? Somebody says I'm doing this thing for the first time this is so difficult. You should really step back and ask the question. Is it worth doing it? Your flag should be going up as a product manager. Okay. This is a risk if this guy saw smarty saying nobody else's done. This. It automatically. There's a pretty high riskier great. So you should you should start hearing things differently as a product manager. And engineer is very proud. He's telling you, look, I'm going to do this. Awesome. Awesome job that nobody else's that were done as a product manager. I am freaking out at this point. Right. So your job is to simplify solve the problems. Not in a difficult way the easiest way possible, right? That is by far the most important thing as a product manager. Embrace simplicity. Make it simple. There is nothing. Challenging about making a problem more difficult than it needs to be right? And this also includes by the when you're building a product, especially in hardware, right or even software when you go by it's in a box. The buck and only have three things on it rate. So instead of having twenty features. That you don't even have space to advertise educate a customer about who needs them. Get all of those out right saved them for the future. Just do three things. Right. And tell the world about it. And you'll be able to sell more rather than all the other stuff right again. That's part of the simplification really understanding. What are you looking to do when you how are you going to sell this product think about it that way and then go, right? So go back to the needs and returns. And feasability thing. What does the consumer one only two or three things that they want only two or three things? I can tell them. Right. Go back to the same thing. The other thing which I like to do is. And this is a way sometimes to achieve simplification, though, I been bit by at once in my life, which is modular is. Right. Learn to break a big problem into smaller chunks that you hope and pray their independent, right? So this is again where a good product magic and said, this is independent of most of you know, I can have team work on this independently of the other team, right? Create smaller chunks of problems that are solved rather than have this one big massive thing that can overwhelm even the best of teams, right? Learn how to do that. It's extremely important. You know, so one of the things that worked very well for me except one time I got bit is when you're building a product like this. I can separate my electrical design from mechanical design, right? The form factor. The ideas long as I know how much space I need. And so on I can send the team to work on that independently right color and shape and finish. And a lot of this stuff can be done independently of the electrical design except one product, which is my favorite one. I'll show it to you guys is these were the first headsets. This is a product accurate that I did not watch by the way. Right. I killed it. The literally like the evening before it was going to launch rate. These were headsets that are actually in the market now, not this from other vendors where you put this in your in your ear, and it also measures heart rate from your ears. Right. Have heaven you try those headsets? So this is about I did this product I would say about ten years ago. Right. So nobody had done this thing. And I'm like, yeah. I can do this thing. And I made the mistake of seeing I can separate. Eight mechanical from my phone where designed. Right. Bad mistake because how this headset fits in your ear and how? It is going to interact with your skin, which is where you get your heart rate from and you need to run all your former algorithms to get the heart rate. Those two were absolutely could not have been separated, right? The entire team. And I took responsibility for we're not smart enough to have recognize early enough. So you build this thing, and you have your phone, and it doesn't work to the level of accuracy that. We had set out to meet, right? So it's a subjective decision. Do you launch something that works? Good ninety five percent of the time. Or do you one thousand nine percent of the time? Ray? It's a subject to that. It doesn't work it work. But does it work good enough rate? Is this something that you can be proud of at the end. I have always looked at products that I have launched a very personal myopic standpoint. My going to be proud to have my name associated with this product. Right. And if I said, no. This is not what I want to be known for. The new just take your lumps and push it in your pocket and say nobody else's gonna see the light of nobody else. Going gonna see this product. Right. It's a very personal decision. And I want every product manager to think that way, right? Don't put the ball in somebody else's court. Hey, can I put the moral Brannon know each individual is their own brand name, right? Each product manager needs to own their product. They need to say is this good enough for them. Does it meet their on expectations of the product. They're going to launch right in hindsight. By the way. We probably should have launched this. Right. Ten years later. I I would be. I would say I made a mistake we probably should have longed because given the technology off even after Volusia over the last ten years. It hasn't become any substantially better. Right. But again, you know, when you are or early in the game. You're the forest one you're gonna make some mistakes. And you're you're going to have to live with this. Right. So to me, I keep this as an example in my pocket all the time because it makes you humble every now, and then you've ever done great things. But things like this. Right. You know? These are subjective calls you have to make right? The other thing which I learned. Is what I call just in time decision making. And what I mean by just in time decision making is we all wanna make decision. Probably going to say I'm gonna make all these decisions today. Right. And I always try to bring some comments that, you know, what do you really need to make this decision today or could it be could wait another week or a month or two months? You really have to ask this question. Do not make decisions prematurely. Right. Because when it comes time to make a decision, you may have more data every decision has a probability of being wrong. The only way you can improve the odds of it being right? You can collect some additional data to help you in making that decision. Now, I'm not saying don't make a decision. Absolutely never be afraid of making a decision. But make sure that. You understand that this decision should not be postponed? Or can you make half a decision today, and I can postpone the other half of the decision making. But I have more information great as a product manager. You have to improve your odds of success one of the ways in which you can improve your success is postponing making decisions that don't need to get made. Right. It does not mean that I've advocating procrastination, right? I'm not doing that. I wanna make a decision, but I wanna make the decision. Absolutely. The last point in time. I can actually make it. Right. So every decision has the right time. And this is why having good program managers who are very different than product managers program managers schedule people, right? Those people will help you understand. What is your needs to get made win? Right. Have a good solid program manager to work with you to help you understand what needs to get decided at what point in time. Right. And sometimes, you know, you can even argue with pro program and say, you know, what I can postpone this decision. I can make eighty percent of it now and the remaining twenty percent I can postpone making that right? So just in time decision. Making is extremely important. And. A product manager, right? You have to get used to being uncomfortable. Right. If you don't like stress, and you run away from stress don't be a product manager because you're going to have your living by definition, you're seeking uncertaiunity radio taking a lot of risk as I said every day, right? You have to enjoy being uncomfortable rate. You have to enjoy going to work. So you know, what I don't know. What's going to come hit me today? Right. I may have some surprises for me. And I will guarantee you surprises every day, you're doing product management, not everything nothing goes per plant. When you're building a product nothing will go to a plan. Right. You know, the I do the same great into battle. And the all the battle plans are kind of blown up, right? Same thing happens when you're building a product, you have a nice planet program gives you a nice big and chart and all this other stuff and the fours day ingenious are working on it. And you start sharing it with customers. All of that goes haywire. Right. So you really have to learn. To keep calm. Even all of this stuff is happening around you. Right. So you have to learn to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Right butterflies in the stomach and people screaming at you. And all of this other stuff just get comfortable with it because people are going to read your body language. And when when I'm stressed I may five other people's treasure on me. And then the entire team comes to a standstill. Right. So you really can't do that. That is something that's extremely important. And the last part is you got to enjoy the spotlight rate whether good or bad, right? You as a product manager on the product you on the outcomes as I said when what that means you're going to have the spotlight on you wherever you go. There's going to be this little spotlight on you running behind you right everywhere. Something goes wrong. Everybody's gonna know Sanjay messed it up. Right. And then everybody's when the product is successful, the after learn to make sure you acknowledge and reward and appreciate all the people who helped you make that way rate. There's an engineering team. There's a sales team. There's a supply chain team all of those people, of course, are critical people a product manager doesn't difficultly how all of these people reporting to this person. So you really because you want to build another use the same team to do something else. Right. So you have to learn to share the good but absorb all the batch stuff right to take all the lumps and kind of share all the good stuff with with everybody. You really have to become good at doing that. Right. You can't offer as a product manager will never offer offer excuses as to why something didn't go right or why something is delayed. A why something whatever happened? Right. You can't just have to own it and move on. And so you have to really be able to drive in that and be love the spotlight. If you are the one who runs away hide under the table when stuff happens, then you should think what is this really for me. Right. But it's a very fulfilling job, by the way, product management is by far the most satisfying, at least for me when you see a product that you engineer on the shelf, right or you can go see it on Amazon, the thrill that you get right? Is absolutely amazing. I tell people there's no high like seeing a product that you built on the shelf someplace right that your kids can buy you can go to your parents. They can go buy it. You can see strangers on the street use it. You know? I was surprised I was at Costco yesterday. Right. This is another one of those products. I built this is more than ten years old now. Right. And even yesterday, I see one of the Costco, employees wearing this headset. Right. Which was amazing to me writing. This is one of actually one of the first bluetooth headset that actually had a case, and I can tell you how we came up with this idea for case, it was all product management driven rather than engineering driven. And I noticed it writing this guy. I can't even buy this product anymore. But he's wearing it. Right. And it made my day. He'll look somebody's still using my product, which is which is awesome. Right. That you have to appreciate an enjoy. That you made a difference at the end. I learned a lot. I learned nothing from a book because none of these books existed like, you know, twenty years ago when I started doing this. But there's a lot of good books out there today that you can read where you can learn from other people's wisdom that they have learnt right? There are experiences. Go read the stuff. But I've also learned there's only one way to really learn it reading books great rate. But there's only one way to learn. Which is. By doing it yet. That's the only way you're going to learn tennis by sitting watching YouTube, videos or reading the theory of tennis. No, if you don't go to the court and hit some body never gonna learn it, right? Right. You know, Andre Agassi's, dad. I heard was like made him hit three thousand balls every day. Right. You need to practice practice practice. So if you think you're going to become a product manager by reading books or listening to somebody or me giving you advice. No. The only way you're going to do it and become good at it is by actually doing it. Right. So practice it product management is one of those things engineering, you can learn by reading a book, and you can learn some theory product management. There's no chance you gotta go and do it. You gotta go out there and put yourself out there practice, do it. Learn makes mistakes bloody nose every now and then and. That's how you're gonna go. Right. You know, I call product management is like baseball. Right. You know? Not everything that you do will be successful. Not every time. A better goes into the Battersby. He's gonna hit a home run rate. If you can hit a couple every now, and then that's probably good rate. And docks. The mindset that you need to have is if I don't do this. If I don't get down and get my hands dirty. You will never succeed rate. So do it make yourself one hundred will put yourself in situations, which are inherently uncomfortable. And and you'll become good at it at the end. It's like most other things in life. If you do it often enough, you'll get really good at it. Right. But this is one of those things where I really strongly believe it's the expedience that matters having done it multiple times every time you do something. You learn iterative you understand what went wrong. What went right? And improve. Right. Let me tell you about this product, actually, which is really let me go back a little bit. Right. So this product was designed when bluetooth headsets were only used by men largely right? And so when we're looking and seeing how many are we going to sell we realize we're not selling to half the world rate. My total market addressable market is only have because only selling it to men. Not women rate. Women are waiting jewelry women are doing everything. They don't want this bluetooth headset on their right? And the other thing is men have pocket where they can put the bluetooth headset. Women typically don't have pockets, right? They have a parse and they put this person. They can't find it. So we created this cool little jewel box rate where you can put your product in you create something that is actually not even visible. It can hide. Beneath the hair, and by the way, still works, right? If you hide it have been in inside, the ear, the hair someplace and the microphones don't work. That's a big problem. Right. Then why? Yeah. Right. So and that's how we came up with this, right? In fact, the test was relaunched this product eleven years ago, roughly two products one was this product, which is low and features. But had this cool case the battery charging thing in there, and you can, you know, nice jewel case that I had so many friends Sunday. My wife is asking for this gonna have one can have resource in. This was the hottest selling heads a ten years ago. Roughly when we designed it because of the force of its kind and. We had another one with like four microphones, and all this crazy noise. Cancellation stuff, and blah, blah, blah. This product, you wonder what had less futures or so that product by two one, right? So just says the job of a product manager. If you let engineers do it. They would have just kept putting more and more features. No, we need to do a different level of thing. I'm gonna do the easy stuff. I don't need this four microphone stuff and all the former stuff just give me a simple case, right? Where I can put this thing night as a small battery. So I can charge it. It's more comfortable because it's not very heavy all of this other stuff right now. This has become everybody has it. This is the other thing. This is another interesting product by the tell you. So this is I couldn't I have one at home. I couldn't find it today. This was a product everybody probably knows what this thing is today. Yeah. It's a power Bank. Right. But this was done in two thousand five. Right. And in those days in a Motorola was. We were just coming out of our razor. Remember the Motorola razor? How many of you? Remember that phone? Yeah. So awesome. Awesome product right and selling replacement batteries for that phone was about one hundred twenty million dollar business for mantra just replacement batteries. Ray? And there comes the smartphone. Right. Just about that timeframe. After that. And we're looking at this and saying whoops. This entire one hundred and twenty million dollar businesses going. Going away. Right. Nobody wants to placement batteries. These batteries are not replaceable because these are getting built, right? So me as a product manager for that business of selling replacement batteries. I only two options I don't have a job, and I get trashed by my CFO, and my CEO or I go figure out something else. Right. And we said we stood back for a second. Okay. My razor used to last a week without a battery getting recharge my smartphone last today. Okay. So even if I don't need a replacement battery the need for battery is not gone away. Right. What product do we create to serve that each which we know is there, right? This is when we came up. There was no battery Bank in the world at that point in time. This what we came up. And we said, you know, what this is what people need. I just need to put battery in little case and sell it to people can chart their battery in the phone that they. Replace with something from the outside. Right. The number of people used to carry two batteries one in their backs. When the battery runs out on the razor. They would just swap the battery and there you go, right? So again, this is not a product that engineers did right? This is a product that. I call it. Consumer driven innovation that product managers have to drive in the organization, they really have to see. Okay. Who am I selling to what am I selling? What is their need? The need was very simple guys. I need my phone charged. All the time. Right previously. I used to have spare batteries now I need to have something else. Right after that. It's relatively straightforward to build this. Right. And by the with this product is great because retailers love it. It's such a simple thing. It never comes back rate. So you can sell a product has great margin. You take a dollar battery nitty sell it for fifty and everybody's happy. Everybody's making a lot of money on this. Right. So anyways, product manager, right? You know, what I tell? Now, even though I started out as a geek. And I always tell people now I'll really like to think of what does the consumer want? Right. And then we will go figure out aligning the rest of the stars. But I think understanding what a consumer is willing to pay for stock from their typically makes for a more successful business rather than looking to have this technology. Now, let me go figure out what to do with it. And who to sell it to? Right. Maybe I will work through to the other side. There's no drawn right way. By the way rate. It happens enough products that come from technology. I enough products that come from consumer need I or there enough products that come from. I know I can make some money doing this. So let me go do this. Right. And then I can go make the other stuff aligned thanks for listening to the product podcast. If you like this episode, don't forget to leave us a review on itunes.

Hour 2: Shaquille O'Neal

"The. We give them a lot of passes. I feel like it's unfair because any other superstar in the league don't get as many passes Steph curry listen. I'm not taking stuff man. He's a he's go down all time great, but his finals the way he performing the finals. I mean he, he gotta get some kind of, you know, criticism behind it 'cause I mean, what's this feel finals? And, you know, he have yet to really show up. Let's see here in Utah. King, former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins on the Brian win who is in the hoop collective show podcast talking about Steph curry continuing to get a pass for poor performances in big games. Ryan. Perks criticism of Steph is if they're foul I expect this from you, I expect from you, but park you align big dog. I got you got who played the game you know, Steph Curry's impact. Here's the reality. Steph may not be the best one on one guy in the game. The guy who creates his own shot, but with the ball in his hands he's magic. And it's not just for himself is not just shooting. Threes is the impact he has on other guys. Now, if you look at the game in the finals, he goes off for forty seven points, the rest of the games when he passes the ball. He can't help. If Klay Thompson eight on a floor. He can't help if IGA dollar won't even look at the rim. If Draymond green, we'll look at the rim Kvant loonies missing bookie cousins cakes up over a phone, book, credit card. Silk. Oversell kober. So we blame Steph curry keep in mind this shot that he missed, okay? The shot that he missed that would extended the series out. It was the hardest shot in basketball. A wing three on the move is the hardest shot in basketball at get it hit. It hit it. There were times when you watch the series, slowdown take a breath of fresh air. He was triple team bro. How many players get triple team, your coli literally get triple team. I've, I. Kawhi Leonard dribbled around then Simmons, very good fan and shot the three in the high balls of Joel Embiid. Everybody Fender to hit the three to send them to the next hour. Horrible. About how bad that was because any good defenders not go. Let kuwa- Leonard get to his right hand and get their Embiid. So to cut them off. We're not argue that, though the reality is Steph, made the correct basketball. And when he was swinging, Draymond green shots, what t- two percent from three. What does he's a minute ago talking about how great the warriors are all these great players now dissing? We're not talking about the hurt we play because right on the money, and I'm quite sure Perkins will also give them credit for what he did. Well, although we debated Perkins said the forty seven points meaningless I disagree. They needed extra offense from Steph. They didn't have clay. He gave it to him. I give him credit. I saw a lot of improvement in the finals from Steph in these finals improvement. But he ain't there yet you look. What is what is there? He's HMO. Explain six foot three. And under you could argue is the best whoever did it and this game selects out for height because not your case, but most people unless the river. The river women elevated. So the taller, you are the better like it's to your advantage. Even small venture logic even swan is that your logic being taller better, even by not near case. But even when you play small mobile. Mobile means is you have a diverse set of skills. If you play small ball with tall players, like LeBron dear about to do you'll see it's even better. So I give Steph amazing credit like a huge credit for being as is for six three and under. But perkins's, right. Let's examine this he's played in five finals. Let's go back to the first one LeBron was twice as good as anyone else on the floor that they're so much better than Steph. He's been. No his team lost. They had to give the MVP to the guy who defended LeBron. Yeah. He was not to LeBron being, that's once, underperformed in those final second finals, seventy three win team at home fourth quarter zero points, four minutes, and twenty two seconds. The greatest conductor in the history of half court orchestras, couldn't play any music with chips on the line and had they won. They have been called the greatest team in the history of American team sports. Lebron one that was the second one. The third one. K D gets there. No one can do any. Of course, if you add to that mix to step excuse me do a stem. Not saying that's what you're saying. No ryan. Excuse me. It's in big moments were not arguing steps knock. Everyone knows steps is great. However, big a fool you think I n you even can't think on that ticket flood. Collide. Lynyrd deferred, impasse, the shot to Banff lead who wanted to lower who missed the shot. Deferring timeout. Are we questioning how many finals played in how many finals he pleaded what two three three finals MVP's? Does he have? So. Now because over the plate nineties talked about that mum job at all the place because you keep it to that moment, though, because you're talking about Steph big moments to say anything about court when he passed the ball if you pass the ball and they hit the shot and you win the game. Good for you. But why did he pass the book because he was double team. Right. Why do you pin allies Steph when he passes the ball when he's double co I could've handled that double team better? He could've dribbled out sucked out the defense a little bit. He no one's perfect. But Ryan, let me finish. What I'm saying. So it's third and fourth finals. Katie's the MVP now you gotta fit finals peel, Katie off the team, you still got clay. You still got great. You got it dollar. You have enough. Stuffy had Hawaiians MVP. It's you play. He had. Finals win. Will one you say this. You can't say he had Klay Thompson Klay pulls hamstring MRs gained three and then pulls his ACL. How many games did they play altogether? What three? Six games as I predicted Toronto, one in six just as they. Klay, one cleanness six quarters sticks six quarters out of six games. He had clay for plenty of that series. Let me say this. Steph curry is arguably the best shooter basketballers ever seen. No. Okay. There's a list him clay. Reggie Miller Ray Allen me and then some other guys at the bottom, but as a shooter, you're going to do this. Okay. You're going to be up and you're going to be down. And it just so happens in the final situation match. He's been trending down. Okay. Okay. Understand what would candidates saying aka swamp thing. I know you watching right now. To say would have. It's fouled it's but you if it so happens. This is the way the analytics guys that you don't like are on your side about this 'cause I argue with them if it so happens that you're constantly down when your team needs you the most, if that's so happens. And then you are choking. Not up. No. Let me. Since he's so bad in these moments, the jobs, we see players and clutch moments. Why are they chasing him off the screen? Why are they scream worst field goal percentage this the greatest shooter ever facing elimination, I listen max, hold on. Hold on Ben and a lot more. George. I know you've got two left the goat. No one's comparing him to use Jordan, as an example of it is possible for the best players who face doubles to elevate. Clutch. See a collect player not in the finals game on the line, you wouldn't want him. What am I this is so funny to me he wanted in New England? Four the series shot on the line. Be what did he do? He scored twenty two points and hit the open twenty one minutes. But it's different though max because thank you. Andre IGA dollar is always open. I do. She. For crisis Toronto, plate box in one. Okay. But he's doing a lot of running around or whatever. So that's why I'm saying as shooter, we look at him. And everybody says it he's the best shoot we've ever seen. So as shooters. You know it's up and down. It's up in always down when it matters not all the time. Just so happens in certain situations, the finals when he in down. Okay. How trends down whenever you need them in the final, because I've seen him in the final because before this one win against him as a coach in the first four finals before his fifth one and I'm telling you right now, I say something we were doing everything we could can I say something. Pardon? Yeah, I get real look, I would say this. He also tries to play defense but he cannot stay in front of his man that's half the game. Gives me on offense. I don't want to overstate it. Steph, does a lot of good things like you both mentioned. He makes the right decisions with the ball. The ball doesn't stick with and in that first final. It's the. Never res not open. How I'm in big time you guys won't concede that he doesn't hit shots when you need him. Most you can say they changeovers with. With so credits. You get he. He's electric. What I'm taking Steph curry to shoot. An open shot anytime, is this something that interferes with your happiness or preventing you from cheating your goals?

Brought to you by chase now according to these IRS, the Lakers are the favorite to win next year's NBA crown with three to one. Odds over the bucks and clippers max Kellerman. The Laker should be the favorites next season. No at this moment, Toronto should be Kawais still Toronto Raptors. And when you consider the Anna nobody will be healthy, and then ascending player, Seon OBI. Think of what's hitting threes now maple trees. That's the point did used to hit threes. These are young sending Ryan it all some. But we don't we don't know he's sending players. There were two of them. I have my eyes on this team. One of them was hurt this year. Yes, I have high hopes ran and nobody. And Siaka is still ascending. He's getting better and Kyle Lowry. Now's a very good experience in the playoffs under his belt. He's now a champion. We'll see how that affects him because Lowery, it was never, like he's not an elite point guard. It's like in the playoffs he something less than elite only in this series. He was excellent in the finals when they needed him most on the road at oracle he was probably the best player in game six. So this is a different situation for the rat. Thor's with a healthy Kawai when you look at the rest of the east, the Celtics are in disarray, Jaanus needs. It needs to be someone better than Bledsoe. Like a guy who can get his own shot. And do you want to call? Why do you not acknowledge him? Why don't people around? I just saw that Kawai got Janas. So that changed. I go based on. Did you if you just change at the Sixers and health can't be trusted Simmons has stalled? So the rap is going to get out of the east, again with now you look at the Western Conference, Denver is going to be good. Maybe not quite good enough. The rockets we've already seen what they're about the Lakers have the right pieces yet around LeBron d it's going to take them year to put that together. Meantime, of goes to the clippers it's the same situation with the rockets. They just took the warriors six games. Now, you're just going to ask why with a healthy Kate, you're going to add to that mix. They're going to be the best team because it's already a team just going to add a finals MVP. So the Lakers should not be favored, the answer to the question, who should be is whichever team co is on either the raptors clippers should be the favorites. Okay. I'm gonna say this. Not this past playoffs the playoffs before and Novi. Okay. Siaka the babies that Toronto Raptors team got swept by LeBron James lead. Cleveland cavalier. All right. No kawai. No quiet doesn't matter. Doesn't matter who finals who is the third best player in the league, I best behind LeBron James, and Kevin Durant is hurt wasn't as good as healthy. Lebron James, Kevin Durant Leonard. Okay. Now, fast forward, LeBron James when he takes the four this season. Seven months of rest. Now, you tell me what that's gonna look like going forward in this season. And on top of that, you add another top five player, Anthony Davis. Of course they should be the favorites to win the NBA championship next year. Ryan floors, yours talking you talking stuff. I like to hear man opening big ears. Can you hear this? I want you to I want to make sure you check this. When you give LeBron James help this man handles his business in the biggest thing he got when Abe began basketball beyond eighties, rebounding shot-blocking shooting jumping leaping, ability, whatever it may be. It's motivation of motivated. Lebron james. That's who is. Now a lot back in the basketball makes you favorites. Now, you add help now you take, Katie out the equation. You take clay out Kawai littered. Listen ain't nobody else gonna be able to join him now. He's gonna go to, to amazing situations either staying in Toronto or going to the clippers. No one can question that. But you win with superstars when you die sec the NBA finals, the playoffs the further that it does everybody knows your place. They know your sets and players go out and make plays in if you add, Anthony Davis, you've got LeBron James, and I'm expecting. Another star comes if not a solid group because that's the realistic thing if you're going to go and take a pay cut as for. A championship. And when you look at LeBron James, he's the most proven in the NBA right now. And even. And even if we're going to say your father time, father time, LeBron lots of step. He's still an incredible athlete. He's still he's still a top five athlete. And I was saying before the start of last year. Lebron's worth any two MVP's. Lebron was so much out. Help is. The Braun is going to be two years older by the time the playoffs rolled around when I said that he had a big injury and the deplete the wall. All big games. Now growing tweaks. Really the entire playing it safe man, not a big. And so he was a big injury was. Did they make the playoffs? Have you had a groin injury? NBA played in ROY. Answer the question. Did they make the playoffs or no no? Why didn't they make the play you didn't have help around him? Not got her. You play maturity they did. Big injury, seventeen games, hold couldn't beat the Knicks the Knicks sign come up on and LeBron James and AD your multiple superstars. It can't just be one in the actually LeBron James when he first got to Miami, had weighed and Bosch, but it was year one they hadn't figured it all out yet. And they lost to a team with one superstar because it was a real team. The Dallas Mavericks, what was the other team, they lost, because they didn't win four in those four years they want to? No, no, no, no, no to the question. Who did they lose to? They lost to the Senate Tonio Spurs really and who won finals MVP. How? He shouldn't one baby. He didn't let me those teams that you mentioned right? Would you say they're veterans squads? Would you say they know how to play the game? Or how would you label the Brian James now veteran? Right. Of course, savvy veteran that he was not a better than any couldn't show. Three gamers. Stop reading here. Spurs the last year, Miami, he was not only veteran he couldn't shoot look at the shooting percentage, any had weighed and the ad Bosh any Admiral players and they lost to the Leonard lead. He was the finals MVP as a B E before you could even score lead, Spurs now who is in full bloom. He's going to be on to fully your team's the raptors or the clip thing, as far as basketball savvy knowledge know how that's the same LeBron James that lost thing that you see now that he does and running all that better than this liberal. He doesn't know how to post up go. Get busy on the block. He doesn't have a three point shot. He can create off the bounce. He's not clutch. The best LeBron James that ever was was the third season in Miami. That's as good as it got. He's not as good now as he was, then he was more. You gotta understand the older. You get we can't rely athleticism. So what's the Brown James got a post game d? Deep threes game. Then he's still don't right? He's still Deng right now. You do don't get me wrong. Twenty seven eight years sixteen when you rather have that LeBron that Browner this LeBron the third season. Miami this LeBron where am I going crazy? I won't LeBron anyway. I mean. Don't matter. I like this guy who can close games for me because that's what he couldn't do then LeBron James couldn't close games. And they're alive. Marsh, Mariah any shooting at three a lot better. No, actually his best three point shooting. Here was in Miami. I believe it was the third year. Also. Also. When it went back to Cleveland this shooting coach, it does the Brian James close games better now. Or then I would say Jew, put the by with saying, I would say, I would put the ball of his hands at the end of games by the second or third year. My answer. The question though. Does he now or right, right? Right. If you had a game winning play or shut do you get a ball, LeBron James Okawara Leonard, I'm going. I'm out of here. Hey, listen. I appreciate you. But we need to call HR. Komo some feelings are. No, but. No. Oh my. You telling me that you're going to take a wide Leonard in a game winning situation over LeBron James. Yes. All right. But my point is. Throat cracked a little bit. You said it. On that. Let's take the Los Angeles Lakers storage branch is has sixteen championships was a second all time. NBA history each of those Laker titles set an NBA legend at the helm starting all the way back to their first title in nineteen forty nine cents. Then the likes of Jerry, West magic Karim shack. Kobe all have brought titles to Laker nation now. Lebron James we'll be joined by Anthony Davis as they try to bring the Lakers championship total to a record tying seven teen on that note. You guys see this empty chair right here bring us back on camera. That's a big chair. Big chair for big guy. Shackle be here in just a moment. Just finished up on good Morning America rushing over here. So he'll join us during this segment. Yeah. When it's rainy, people hand dry, when it rains, it's like this big deal. I don't know. Let me ask you this max will the brand Ventura be on the Lakers. Mount rushmore. No. And I want to correct. One thing it is misleading when people say they have the second most championships. Celtic seventeen Lakers, have sixteen. The Celtics won the vast majority of their titles in a league with very few teams. And they had enormous talent advantage, the Lakers in the modern speaking of Mary. I'm sorry. I was on my way to allay. You know what's going on? Could be one of the seven feet tall. But what was the question? Lebron ever been the Lakers mount Rushmore because now with Anthony Davis joining somebody could potentially get pushed off the great bugs Kellerman finish. Don't call them the answer. First of all, the Lakers versus great, first of all the Lakers head or had the most championships in the modern era start with the absorption of the team, the three point line. They have ten second is six. Let's be honest about who has so all time. Yes. Seventeen sixteen but modern era of the Lakers are killing everyone. There's no. The second part to that question. My question is, does he have to win multiple championships to be on that mountain? Does he just have to win more than multiple? I don't know. I don't think there's any room for on the mount Rushmore or you on a leak. You won three titles. And I'm saying you don't make the mount Rushmore. My on it. Do you make them mount for listen for moved as? I am on a but let's say Karim we'll definitely on a magic how wills. Quills Rushmore is what four or five people four or so. For code means a lifetime, Laker twenty years, five just magic lifetime, Laker five champion. Jerry West is the logo was considered one of the best players everyone. He played in the greatest executive in the history of the league, you're gonna take Jerry westoff. So there's one slot. Go to shack does it, who's it go to does it go to will to Kareem, Kareem right five chips? So what I'm looking at my mount Rushmore for the Lakers. And I'm looking at the Brian James it my mind LeBron James of the greatest basketball player who ever lived ever play ever. So my bigger wrong as. As. Never saw. Okay. Everybody's everybody's fight with the Brown is that he doesn't have the killer mentality man in a playoff. He's got the killer mentality Jordan's numbers his defense, his scoring his championships as championship MVP's, his finals MVP's, I would like to people to start defining players by aero Michael Jordan to the best. I've never heard Michael Jordan say he's the greatest, but he said he thought it was disrespectful to say he's a great. It was great before. I think we should start doing a by Byron. I mean this era, LeBron James era. It wasn't a Brown. Jay wasn't the best player, you know, that check this though behind closed doors and, you know, Koby you know Mike. They all will tell you that a best in, if we go on a show, we say, son, they text eight yeah. He's big dogs. Kobe thinks he's better to Jay. We seen it and Mike will tell you like, you know, him the best and that's what you attitude you're supposed to have to be a champion. But Mike makes the greatest point. I'm not going to do like for me. I'm not going to disrespect will Chamberlain Kareem and say, I'm the best, but in my mind and my house on the court, I am the best. I think we should just start defining by air. But think about this though. We have accents access to athletes now in which they speak their minds allowed to tell you, who they are what they think through social media do branding, that guys didn't have before. So you do have that privilege to actually know what LeBron James, thanks. You do. See those things. Now, I just want to me and you made history today, Stephen Smith knew we was coming here show, short joke, and give me a camera. Stephen coming. Thirty four. Five years, want wanna show, you, baby girl sallow. Anyway, it's all tall. Biggest first. Gimme gimme your mountain. Said the Brown James at greatest player of all time, if he gets championship which I expect next season with Anthony Davis. I'm putting him on a mount Rushmore. It's gonna be impossible German ship. He's I think that you played for the clippers. They've never made a com- Lakers six one three row. Yes. This was the dominating physical presence since Wilt, Chamberlain a love you. I love you won three petered three peat at as finals MVP, and he's here to tell you he's not. The bronze going to get one and make did you hear if you ask him behind the seat and Campbell? Hold on. Here's the mount Rushmore Jerry West. Magic Johnson Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Koby Bryant. I'm putting up for four the Lakers. Now, if you have a big man mount Rushmore, I'm deaf anglers. That's, that's all. Liga pleasant. I'm probably nothing. Argument for shipping. He's right. You can't be on that list just by winning and listen, lebrons my guy, but and LeBron probably says you just can't be on the list by winning one. I'm gonna let me get three in a row. Definitely. These out I'm gonna look at the difficulty though. This man is doing it outside of his prime. He gets a championship. He leasing their Kobe was union prot. Corinne was a little later. We'll give him that in. Magic we've got the best of their gear Bill in the mount Rushmore. Lt win one. You can't do it. If gives it one and the difficulty in general. Okay. Then why isn't Shagged will got to the Lakers one one with the Lakers one and they were favorite to win multiple times. Hold on. Hold on Corinne to the Lakers linked up with Magic Johnson and later James worthy. And Pat Riley and Jerry West and Jerry Buss running this end. Great role players and other all stars never three shacks showed up three Pete. And he's telling you, he's not on LeBron. Gonna get one which, you know why say I'm not on it because I go back to Michael Jordan theorist disrespectful. I think would kill will. Yes. What does this day pave the way for me? They showed me what it was to be a great, you'll gravely, putting them on. So you agree if we go off. You can't put me on there. No, I'm not on that. Because rain was the demand. Let's loud. We talking about him when, when it comes to the Bank of the greatest players of as a big man. I'm a major name to hold a whole new set of the Brian James, the great plant ever. What about Michael Kobe? So you just gonna pass. I'm a I'm a pass Kobe. I'm a look at Michael. I'm a look at the. I. Patrolling America cut me Bryant, couldn't fail or Michael Jordan, Phillip Brown shoes the impact that he's had with different teammates organizations. Would you be if I just walked off the show? Are you aware that this from the Klay doubled Michael, Jordan, insists this make other plans better? Now, I'm gonna say one do max. I don't know the numbers like you do. Migra join is what in the finals six and what all is the Brandon funnels. That's all. How many? How many did he? Jayco two zero zero. Times MJC the warriors. Oh, oh, I'm glad you brought that up. You stopping this. He's going to beat the warriors be can't Campbell. Your dad time when Julia higher. No. They would one laps run out bulleting. Are you kidding me? Okay. Let's go play by play. Go play player point guard. So you got point God, you got staff whose gotten Steph pip. I'm asking. You're just take him. All three. Of course. I guess what? Guess what? So you got Steph. You got clay. You got K D. You got dream on. And we whoever at the five whoever they're going to beat that team. Yeah. To mention they're not gonna guard Rodman, and they're doubling every time MJ I gotta hit those stories. Okay. Another question era. We plan we plan in the big boy air where you cannot people answer. We plant in this little cupcake air, think you can't touch these era. I think they winning both heiress will you stop? Hold on is Clayton tough clay couldn't play. Whoever's turned him to say. Stop it. How did Dennis Rodman played defense? He he, he put in like a man. Play defense. Jordan played. Good time here on I take NBA hall of Famer Shaquille, O'Neal, still here with us guys. Anthony Davis case you, haven't heard yet. He's joining LeBron James in L A via trade. That sending Lonzo ball, Josh heart in Brandon Ingram to New Orleans with future first round draft. Picks max. I'll start with you here. The Lakers need another superstar. No, they don't need. Another superstar. First of all, K D is hurt Claes her. They're missing next season that takes care of the warriors. They're not going to win the title. You look at the Western Conference. James harden, has not gotten it done when it's mattered most Denver is on the come up, but they're still missing that finals MVP as much as I like Yokich usually that guy needs to be paired with the guy who can get his own shot on an MVP kind of level. I think that. The lakers. When you look at LeBron AD have done the formula has always worked for them. Great little great big right? So back from Jerry West and we'll magic and Kareem Koby and shack Koby and Ghazal. They even tried it with Kobe. And Dwight but Dwight's not on that level. Kobe was older. Now they got it again, with LeBron AD what you need is to flesh out the roster with a with a dribble penetrated who get his own shot with a three in d either back court or win. But some guy like Danny green type of guy with a guy who can score off the bench. There's not enough money to get a superstar in and you have a bunch of minimum players. You got to superstars flesh out the roster. I would agree with that you definitely need more shooters answer to your question. Molly would be nice if they can get another superstar of Jimmy Butler. Kawai linter. However, there's a guy who team have superstar potential. So if I'm him, I'm going to be also that's called Kouzmin. I'm saying you know what I'm playing with a Brown. I'm playing with AD. You guys do what you do have a lot of opportunity to get over. He definitely had to take advantage of all the open rooks. He has to play, well, he has to be that third. And if you have those three I definitely like those three, you feel it with some shooters of a couple of guys and if everybody can stay healthy. They make noise in the west. I don't know if they win it next year but they definitely make a lot of noise. Big fella night. You talking to me, now you're talking to me. We don't plan your air anymore, and that's no disrespect. But this air wins were superstars. Got away. If you make a lot of money if you sell all that nonsense that you right now to the people, you have a hell of a book. I'm still upset, you even those it backup. It is a tough mind. Okay. We're back to the one thing that they need is a superstar who could shoot the deep three off the bounce, then you go, and fill in three guys, you get a versatile center, Kvant looney availed McGee something there. But you get a guy who can shoot a deep. Three is space of the floor. You relieve pressure from everybody else. That's why there's a big urge from LeBron James call inquiry saying, Cowdery what we gotta do he's hitting the Kimball walkers at road. That's why today's the NIH is about space on the summer. Stanley K D being hurt. So there's an opportunity capitalize on this next season. I agree. Of course, that would be nice. That would be ideal. But when you say you just have you get three in guys three and guys are not on vet minimums, real three and d guys. Get eight ten twelve million dollars a year. You will have no real three and guys on that and not to just throw it out, because I'm not going to, you know, dump on people have an experience and guys who have been there before we wave Danny green in Cleveland. I didn't wait. So don't take any green with the San Antonio, and blew up. Trevor REEs it was a guy who's finding ways get money what a Houston. So guys can develop my point. I'm not looking for superstars. I'm looking for specialists. Right. Would you say we need to gather three? I'm looking around at the draft forever guy like shoot because guess what? Lebron those guys patriot guy going to be wide open. You know, it's not like you're not planning to create Jones. You got to stay out there and just do what you know, he wants he wants three and dues for the money you wanna spend three ordeal dudes. You're not getting three indeed dudes. You can find you can corner threes. PJ tucker. He's a guy who developed his three costs money, but what I'm saying, I'd rather spend the money on a guy who can shoot it off the bounce. That's why there's value for Steph Kemba kyri. Those guys can create their own shots and space it. And now Bron can go do that young play off the Bono. Who else can do that instead of spending max dollars on a small guy who can't defend right? Why don't you get you locate the next Jamal Crawford, the guy's not going to get that deal? But he's still. He's still he's not he's not gonna play defense. He's not gonna do certain things. So it's going to keep him as a six man type, but he could dribble penetrate and he can shoot you can find dudes like that. Lebron's has always one with a medium level specialist. Mike Mila was all-star wasn't a great player. Mike some personal. Lamont. But he was a specialist. He's a raise way got two championships. And my of course you Ray out into that. Dollar contract. Minimum minimum brought and maybe mid level at best, right? Proves my point. I'm not going to big time guys at one all the money I'm going to God. That's a special guy that's gonna work on a guy that that's going to relish, and enjoy the opportunities. That's what I'm going to say. The question for you here changing topics. You mentioned that you felt like the Lakers, we're gonna make noise. Right. They're gonna make noise, but not necessarily a lock to win the chip who's giving them a run for their money. I mean, is it the rockets is that the wounded warriors? Wars and rockets. And then again, I'm you know, we don't know what's going to happen to someone's going to be very interesting, some, I've, if I'm coli, and I'm the king and the emperor of account, I'm staying a lot speculation. Clippers legs. We don't so I really can't answer question now. I was it'd be better if the season starting next next week. And I have more information, but this katie's coming back with vengeance Claes coming back with vengeance. We all know recital, whatever they're doing. But it takes time takes time time time jail because we got we know we got clay AD. We know we got LeBron. We all know about the other pieces. What if they don't go out and get any specialists? No guys can play defense. You know, it'll be another tough tough tough year phone. But right now, they make a lot of noise, you gotta Brian, you got AD everybody's going crazy. But it's still a lot of teams that hunger, Houston like I'm here and some stuff. I'm not really. You know, if they could get out of the Chris Paul deal, they probably would right now. All contracts. And that there's potentially beef with Chris falls, new briefers speculation as far as I know it's speculation. But, but Jack, I want to ask you a question about the clippers I look at the clippers I look, Jerry West Jerry West is the guy who kept the Lakers. Good. But kept the cap space good, because he saw two dudes. He saw Shaquille, O'Neal's going to be a free agent and that kid. Kobe Bryant's going to be one of the greatest ever. I'm going to I don't care about anything else. I'm getting them. This dude shows up in Memphis powerhouse, he shows up in the warriors. Their dynasty now he's with the clippers just like that identifies the right guys. They took a team with K D six games if they add Kawai Leonard to that mix what's going to happen. A lot of noise, and they have a chance of ever. Real good chance to win the championship. However, they still need to three shooters. But they definitely make. No Jerry has always had that ability to see certain things that other people don't see when I was one hundred twenty million dollar contract. First thing he said, hey, I'm bringing this kid from Charlotte. Nobody really knows about Kobe Bryant him to win multiple championships. I'm like, okay, whatever. Just let me. Having to me. But and then, like, you know, he brought in, you know, Robert ory, Rick Fox, and you know, traded naked and Eddie away, you know, said and, you know, all these guys and he's always had that ability. And I would like to say him back with the Lakers just say, yeah. It'd be great. In case, the clippers. Nope. A Laker on a per stop. It was going on everybody. Welcome back into I take here. NYC shacks still with us. Good to have you, sir. Let's get into what you're doing out here. Please tell me about being carnival's chief fun office. Cruise line chief when I'll just want people when when they go on a carnival ship when on cruise, I just have to choose fun over number restaurant. I last year called big chicken Vegas, add onto shifts radiance and mardi gras spring, twenty twenty and it's the best out of Vegas you get to eat free Vegas. H out of business shack Jews Walker. No. You don't get behind. You also. We've got the shag daddy, and we've got the MD there. Okay. Let me tell you something. When I get there, you got to tell them. The patriots. Gets up. All right. Officer. Gonna cruise you and your husband because we would love to go on a cruise the seven day to curb, I'll take it's not one of your July Santa Claus or okay? Homos or anywhere. Beggars can't be choosers a love it. Going. Mcmahon. There was tension between the rockets to superstars James harden. Chris Paul Houston, GM, Daryl Morey that yesterday on Bullock and wingo that any arrests between the two stars simply because both players want desperately to win the rockets to step back in their quest for title last season. Check are the rockets still contenders. The right way tension is good besides much showed as my favorite show, and I see you, we're not you, but I see you Stephen yet tension, every morning, when also realizes there's respect racks, you always say what you say but known you for. And we all know Stephen as he say, say, but you guys respect each other. That's why this one of the best shows same show, me and Kobe tension all the time, but respected, each other respect each other so much out, the we wanna for championship. He's the first guy to jumble arms, so you can have tension you could say, hey man move the ball. We all know the game one guy's not going to do it by some one guy take him forty fifty shots. Not going to everybody has to be involved. My problem with the rockets. They give the ball to one or two guys, just play one on one Chris to dribble seven that's not gonna go say, my favorite team because they play the right way. They got three or four suicide. But it's being being being everybody's involved touch Patrick mccartan, even now has three championships now because. Everybody plays the right way. So I don't mind them having tension has to be respectful to because holding has and having a great show and holding has a great championship. I never heard that story all the stories I heard about the past grades attention. They had beef. But when you step inside the lines, you got to respect each other. So. Way they've been playing the right way to play. It was going to be there's not going to be any other great teams. That's playing the right way, you know, because in order to like, I'm always the first year I got for chairmanships, but not what big shot Bob now without Brian Shaw, not without Rick Fox like I could've took all the shots. But that that's not going keep them ready. So you always got to keep the guys and I always say this team that this term others, you always got to keep the of my favorite others. Clippers Chicago blue versa, Utah Jazz. Michael Jordan's drinking glass of water, and Steve Kerr's, Mike did doubling you kick to make it might says, okay. Got you. He pump fake John Stockton kick the star of to Steve Kerr, he knocks down so you definitely need the others. But if you hold on the ball, nine ten Levin, twelve segment, try to give to the guy in the shock a lot. He's not going to be a ribbon. You gotta keep your guys in riddle. So you think that's the only thing holding back from championship. Yeah. We've got to play together a shack. Here's one more. And you were great passer. But you didn't wait until you know, you had no option then. You got the you got the ball. Two guys on their steps in position. I think the number of rhythm that's a number one indicator of whether or not they're gonna hit the shot. Right. Is the mess, but also in the finals when your team needed you, you pulled out. And I look at James harden, even playing this way, it's make or miss. He's not like take game one. He jumps under Draymond legs. He looks to get bailed out by the ref. How about hitting the shot. I'm going to do. She's James harden and say, he's not a bull. Thank you. I'm not saying. We all know here's ability to to score, but if he did, both like Eka scoring everyone to, but let me kick the PJ Tucker, he just hit a three. It makes it easier for you rather than trying to score five hundred points in four games. So if he just get off the ball every now eight. Eight. People. He can't take every reason they're not contenders is because they don't have the right personnel. James topping. James's a woman pass when he passed the ball to PJ Tucker heat three and he shatter rim. Then you talk about Golden State. You hit Iggy. He shot fake. Reme dribble second third play. Those guys. Drubel impairs, not put it between your legs, ten times and wait for the shock like to come down. But I'm saying if you go in double Jane's, which he was doubled in that series every time he came up pigro, he makes the right play if those guys aren't making the second and third place on the backside, you hit Draymond green when the suitors are there. He's a second secondary point guard. An office achey Livingston those row players versus Houston's row players without Trevor Reza. What are we have Trevor reason they had Trevor REEs a PJ Tucker the whole crew? And they didn't get it. But you look mature lose Trevor reason you don't come back with the same squad and Chris Paul a year later in his career. Give you the same thing shack. I wanna get back to why some players like in the finals when your team needed you putting up forty points. And it seemed to be like every time I'm not about being disrespectful to James harden, because I'm just telling the truth. All I got him play in the league. I just have to tell the truth as I see it he doesn't. I thought he looked to get bailed out by the ref and the first game I've seen too many games must win games. Where it's like, well, he just didn't hit the shot, brother. You gotta hit the shot there. That's the difference. You're right about that. But I would like to see him do both. You gotta keep everybody involved. And you know, especially in fourth quarter, if I was a guy that could shoot like that. And had adequate, okay? Players around me. I would see what they're gonna do. First quarter. Okay. Y'all ain't doing that. And I'm taking over give them a chance every quarter do something. And then a fourth quarter I'd have the Kobe Bryant. I pass nobody, but let me throw this out, though, and try when you played your personnel all those guys had to make decisions correct. But no. Because we made the decision for this as a toe to me saying that they're going to you're not going double barbecue chicken alert, you going double, Rick. You stay over there. You stay with that actress pot Kobe, you down case, I do backside bigshot Bob, you other corner. But I'm the decision forever pass you making triangle dictates what's going to happen. But, but you got allow you guys to being rhythm and you got allow them to play. I can't take every shot Rick shoot. So now. Boom. Mega hard dribble, double. We see what you got Rick Fox, Rick, Fox hit one. We run the same plate now feel we're not doing that. We were on the same old Ricky that we run the same place to stop it. And that's how we were able to win 'cause you definitely got James Keith. Keeping kicking it to the corners, and nobody's making place. No, no. Then you take over. That's not a personal problem note knows personnel. Because listen, we you guys everybody was talking about them. All year is for reason, because of him and Chris, and the personalities. How about Houston, not like down there? The personnel was adequate enough to get it done. But you gotta keep those guys everybody pointed all year law when you lost Trevor REEs that you lost a lot now Trevor may be known as at three D got. But in big moments are in place, he's going to make a play off the bout. He's gonna make the second and third play. And they. Let's take a look at the top potential free agents this off season. Because this class is deep headlining lists are finals MVP. Why Leonard along with injured warriors superstars. Kevin drain Klay Thompson. Also backward stars, Kyrie Irving. Jimmy Butler Kemba Walker will be in high demand shack, which team you feel like is under the most pressure and this free agency with all those ks that deep list. To be Golden State, and you have to say as the only do wanna go to hundred million dollars over salary cap and it was probably. No. So somebody's going to have to go. Now, the question is, who do you let go that Katy go? You let Klay go, you let stuff go who's going to go. I don't know. And then for the players perspective to choice, you gotta make I want to get paid. I wanna win championships. So for K D V wanna win championships. Do you take less money? Pat Riley did me like that. My last year. My he said, let's check twenty five a year before. Whatever. Boom, you could take twenty five. I said, why you of government? If you take twenty five I could bring in GP Posey Antoine Walker down, Pat, you killing me right now and I decided to take less money, but longer years, and it was, you know, help me get my fourth championship. So do you have that conversation with those guys take less money and keep winning winning champs? I don't really. A lot of those guys. So I don't know what their mentality is. But your question is Molly. Golden State has the most pressure. I Tom Brady style right there. I think I think less, they moved things around there really stuck with that, that roster and is not going to be this year, but the next year and Bob Myers is going to have to earn that, you know, GM of the year ward, I think the pressures on the Lakers. You gotta think man when you trade, the fourfold round pick. Brandon Ingram four first rounders. That's your future. You're going all in on now. And when you have a town of, like LeBron James believe you got to do it. And if you're the Lakers, you gotta do it, and it's a superstar driven league players win gained shack, you said earlier years. Do LeBron has. Two years. He's got this year next year that a high level higher level just play period tilles to forty. Four years. How many gem ships you think they get invoices? Give one get to give them to. 'cause it depends look look Katie is going to be back in a picture, Claes going to be back. It's no time like now. No time like the present. So they had to capitalize on his moment. The raptors just did it their injuries. Katie was out. He was out, Golden State was pushing fully loaded team. And they added a finals MVP the Lakers are coming together like voltron, it's gonna take more than one year, just for many times, those opportunities. How many times you look around locker room like man, the most pressure on the, the New York Knicks who traded Kristaps Porzingis on his rookie deal to clear cap space to sign two great free agents right? And after all, this, they will get no great AKa skit K. Here's the difference. The Knicks are the number one team in New York for so long because the nets were in jersey. Nets in Brooklyn. Now, the Knicks when you look at the Forbes list the franchise mixed four point five billion. They haven't won anything in forever. Why? Because they think they got the New York market, all to themselves, they strike out in free agency the nets. Continue to improve. It's not a four point Philly. Leapfrog Nixon, one year leapfrog, that Nicot one. Yeah. Yes. So you're. K D, if I'm Katie. The nets worth I'd have to look it up. It's not four point five. Let's say the difference. Let's say. Let's say the Knicks strikeout the Lakers struck out a couple of times the free agent. They just chill. They just wake James, I'm Knicks fans and some a little kid waiting on line overnight, for the nose bleed seats with Charles Oakley diving on the hardwood. Right. That's why Dolan I always waiting who who shack gonna sign with not the Knicks shack will sign opposite. That's like saying the clippers could take over the Lakers in a year notes. Not hugh. Molly. Who's the best team in the clippers clippers now? I mean stay here. You have to go by year by year this year. The clippers will better than I'm not saying better results. The franchise to me, it's totally different though, shack because the clippers can't be good for a couple years, Lakers, fans got their loyalty rewarded with chip after chip after chip. Knicks ever done for you. So the net suddenly become great. You're not replacing the Lakers, replacing the Knicks at big. I want to bring with you. We played against each other. Elbow. You still got. He keeps the nine NBA two out. We got the video the judge what's this about these work? Floreo you'll look untouchable. What are you talking about? Oh, yes. Up crying vici. Hey, man.
