And when i first went there to meet with them you know talking about podcast creating series and things like that and i'm thinking we're talking about the talent you know we're talking about neka grew mckay and all these people. I'm like yeah. I would love to make shows with these people and then they came back to me after i had this little pitch. And they're like. Yeah we want to do this for this agent we to do this for this agent and then i then i realize that the agents are now trying to be stars. They are trying to be in creators. They were trying to be forward facing that scared me. I bought back on that offer but like you said whoa just trying to make this happen.

This is the rich paul rich paul. He's the guy. If you're thinking of agents who. Bob myers bob myers goes from an agent to be in the gm of the warriors. And he's like a you know. A caricature rob pelinka is to blame. Rob pelinka was famously. Kobe's agent and now is the lakers. You know what. I mean you look at a whole new york. Knicks front office is basically. Caa runs the knicks. So it was was a ari gold. I guess we could do that. We're looking back now to it's entourage's fall entourage was it was it. Who is jerry. Maguire based was drew rosenhaus. The jerry maguire was supposed to be like that. I feel like jim would know. The thing is the least steinberg's i can't remember the guy's name but Yeah but there's also like every single agent. I felt like at that time said that jerry maguire was about them. You know what i mean. that's true. yeah. I probably saw him interview. Retrea rosenhaus was like. Yeah you know. They may jerry maguire after me and then i just. I was twelve when i saw that. And i was like okay just stuck with me ever since now. I see what's coming. I don't like it when i get it. I don't want it. Well just be quite honest. We'll just sources are the owners you know so a lot of people were like how does woes know everything. He has the thirty context of all the owners and they tell him. I'm going to do this because at the end of the day every time that people talk about a gm or you know this person and operations like they're they don't make decisions act like they do act like they're the ones doing this but the owners are making decision is getting the reports on the owners usually nine times out of ten. Yeah so the fact that he is now like pivoted to be like the agent told me this. He's the other side of the table. I understand it was woes was tight with the front offices and shams this type d agents like that was how i was. I could be wrong. Now it's just talk with the owners. The offices are useless. they're they are literally the dummies that are going to do with the owner says. So it's like he is friends with the owners knows the owners you talked to the owners and the owners. Tell him what's going to happen. Let's do a nba just very quickly mba aluminum.

"To reengage with Kyrie Irving and sell him on an Anthony Davis partnership in Boston, which is what they hoped would happen all along. But Boston believes in its its organization, the environment that players like to play there. And they think they could sell Anthony Davis on a future, but there's no question. Anthony, and Rich Paul have done a good job of the pressing the market because of the fear that it would be a one year rental, and he would walk to the Lakers. Yeah. And so look Rich Paul was quoted in Sports Illustrated in this really interesting interview in which he was talking about his client, Anthony Davis. And he said where he's going to land. I have no idea and it doesn't matter. We're going into free agency. Why does it matter to me where he goes, he's made it very clear that this is the beginning of a new era. He says, you know we'll get back. To that part of it. It's really fascinating. This is the beginning. I feel of a new era Rich Paul sort of the beginning of the new normal in a way that LeBron was the beginning of a new normal, rich. Paul is the beginning of a new normal. They front facing high profile agent who is now doing the dirty work that the players themselves used to do, right. Dwight Howard got himself talked himself out of Orlando, Carmelo Anthony, talked himself out of Denver. The players used to do that. Now here's the agent coming out and being honest. I mean he's telling you what, what the reality of it is New Orleans trade this guy because he's going to walk all these other teams. This is the reality of the circumstance, I think he's being honest. I think the reaction to it has been fascinating. This is a real common for me. And I, I don't usually take it there. Especially on the morning show. But it's like I do feel that Rich Paul being a young black man from the background he has through the way he came into the league Koran with LeBron James, people do not like that. The old boys club does not like that. This is not the way that. Business has normally been handled. Now I didn't see people Chaim on David Falk when he was able to get Patrick Ewing out of New York when he was done with New York. You've got him over to the Seattle, I didn't think people do this to earn tell them this has been done in a game for a very long time, but I think it's about because it's Rich Paul because he was putting the door became the most powerful Asia right out of the gate, because LeBron James people do not like that. And this is something that he has to deal with. He's been dealing with since he first got his start look. I totally agree. And I love the fact that Rich Paul got in front of this. And I remember back in February, where I was reporting the sideline and I was talking to rich, and he had said this exact words, what was just reported and which were specifically, what did he say? He said, look, there's going to be a rental situation, unless he goes to pretty much New York or the Los Angeles Lakers. It look when you're a player, you get the opportunity to dictate when you have this type of leverage in this type of value in the situation, which Anthony Davis, have he's a game changer. He's a franchise player Rich Paul understands that better than. Anybody? So he's using that leverage to get him where exactly he wants to go. And, you know, like you said, I am McCain make. And if I'm a d- I'm saying, thank you. I wanna ruthless ancient. I want somebody that takes my name how favor pitcher exactly. It's not about what people think about Rich Paul Rich Paul is getting a deal done to get me to where I want to be. And that's why I pay my age..

"I think he's got a lot of time. I mean, having said that the oldest gotta sign off on a deal, and that would be the case in any market. But she signed off and shows David Griffin for a reason, you know, very much the way he frames puts together this trade, we'll probably affect the early part of his tenure and you never know could affect his entire tenure. So ultimately, I know David really well at. I don't call them David. I call him Griff. I know Griff really, really well, he's the type of general maj, general managers, there's one general manager, who does whatever he can't keep his job, and general manager, who does it his way even if it increases the chances, he could be fired Griffin is the biff wants to do things his way. And so if he prefers a deal, for whatever reason, I, I'm inclined to believe his owner would support it. Yeah. You don't take the job, basically. Right. I mean, I don't think Cam of all people would even take the job if he didn't have that kind of tournament. For sure. And then knowing David, he's interviewed for some jobs in the past, and interviews didn't go well, because I think he was wanting that sort of autonomy, and that's what a relationship with the owner. So, you know, he's got to make the best possibly night. All things being equal. I mean, it's the way Rich Paul has been talking about this publicly. It would seem that Anthony Davis wants to be a liquor more than anything else yet. But like do you get a sense in terms of his preferences, like you know what? What would make Anthony Davis? Happy beyond just being a Laker plan with the brand. Jayme. But they could play for any team is what you're saying. Well, yeah, I mean, I think people have to understand about Rich Paul Rich Paul was given a job by his, but his boss is Anthony Davis in the scenario. He said, I want to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, rich. Paul is out there trying to make that happen for his clients by any means Acerra. He's trying to make it happen. And if it happens, he will have done his job. And if frustrates rich, I know rich very well known him for a very long time. If frustrates him that he is demonized, but he is just doing his job. And here's the thing that you have to understand. And I know that this, this justifies commonsense, and you'll just have to take my word on it. And if you don't believe me, I can't help you Richard straight business. This is all about this. He will have a conversation with the Boston Celtics and say, Anthony Davis is not wanna play for you. If you trade for him. He will leave after a year, I strongly, advise you not to do it. And if you do trade for him, and he leaves the year, I don't want you to blame me 'cause I'm tell you up front, and then that conversation will end. And then he will say that the any age. Okay. Let's begin our contract. Talks, Marcus Morris, who else he also represents he doesn't hold grudges. He's an absolute straight businessman people seem to think that he's doing things on behest of LeBron. He has twenty five client. You think those twenty five clients are with him because they think that they're gonna put LeBron. I honestly I just. I just to the contrary. I mean there have been many, many times guys where I have said or written something that is furious rich that he has called me up and bitched me out, and very unhappy about it. And then we move on to other business. He is a businessman. I and I just I think if you look at him and the other way, you're under estimating six hundred and twenty five million dollars in contracts and counting, by the way business for sure Brian win.

You may remember in two thousand eight yet a press conference because he got married and he didn't wanna show a photo of his wife. So he drew one and I respect that move. You don't get to be my business. No, you get a drawing of my loved ones. I knew of that was actually what you look like or not. I feel like he's a pretty good artist. He also has fifty five thousand pornographic videos in the library. Couldn't help it. Good. I know about that. Out dare you. The Celtics can trade for him, but it'll be for one year in the event that he decides to walk away. And you gave away assets don't blame Rich Paul. Said Rich Paul about the Celtics trading for Anthony Davis, as part of a Sports Illustrated, cover stories of Ahmadi. What do you make of the clarity of ridge Paul's comments? They're telling us things that we already knew he does not want to go to Boston. He doesn't want to go to really twenty eight teams in the league he wants to go to either the Lakers or he wants to go play for the Knicks. He has no say so on this, but it just makes clear what I think, should have been assume if you trade for Anthony Davis, your trading for rental has no intention to stay, which for what it's worth probably we'll ball Jordan. It's probably what Hawaii, Leonard said, you have a chance to sway him, if you've got the heart to do, and that's why so many people. Well, one of the reasons why so many people in the league or so mad at Rich Paul Rich Paul is trying to take control and power for his client. And in the process, he is stepping on all of the dreams of the aspirational would be thunders would be raptors that you just mentioned because Rich Paul doesn't have time for that rich. Paul is saying not only this he saying. After this year, we're going to behave. Three agent one hundred percent. Put it out to planet earth. Twenty twenty Anthony Davis free agent. And why it's because that's how you get the power that he has achieved with clients, such as one LeBron James, but also argued that if you didn't think Anthony Davis is going to be a free agent in two thousand twenty you don't pay any attention to the lead that you work in all these guys go into free agency after the first extension expires. Right. This is the way it goes most guys, they stay home for the first deal. And then they test the market on the second one like all of this should have been a soup. This is part of a larger Sports Illustrated story on Rich Paul, which is very, very interesting. And I think we're reading because so many people have threatened by the very idea of him. Because in the end of the day, an agent is a job. Anybody can do that. Everybody can do, but anybody can do with it. He looks like the limit definition of anybody. We're from selling jerseys outta my Trump to be LeBron James agent. That's why he shakes up but everything he saying here should have been obvious to anyone. He shakes them up on the basis of his age. On the basis of his cultural you on the basis of his race. And it is something that in that story. It was very interesting aren't talent was once in agent and is now an executive with the pistons, he credits Rich Paul, because Rich Paul has the skill set. The skill set of being an agent involves understanding leverage it involves getting into rooms that you may not be invited into and it involves servicing your clients and one of the things that's very clear about how Rich Paul does business his clients. Trust him his clients. Realize I didn't where there is the max contract. Right. And the rookie wage scale as of nineteen ninety six the way you get towering control. It's choosing where you play..
The NBA Finals are hours away, so why are we still talking about the Lakers?
"Now's witching gears to the Lakers. Just there's so much there. Michael. I mean I'm wondering and you're buried in it. What about this situation, especially the last month or so surprises you the most? I think what surprises me the most is the NBA finals are starting in, you know, a little over twenty four hours, thirty six hours and we're still talking about the Lakers and all the drama and dysfunction going on within their organization in in one week from June. I think that's the biggest surprise for me. I'm not surprised by the reports coming out, you and I have discussed this at nauseam before, and what sources have said and what was going on? And I think Magic Johnson going on. I take last week just reinforce that Baxter home story on ESPN as well. I wrote a story that happened to coincide with Baxter's publishing today comparing the Lakers two game. Come on, just all this family, and sibling, fracturing and backstabbing, it's not just been going on this year. But since Dr Jerry Buss died in two thousand thirteen and you know, I, I made the comparison that Magic Johnson played the role. Role of the tar, Gary and torching Lakers landing, you know, not to play spoiler for anybody who hasn't seen it. But that's what he did by going on. I take you know, he, he aired all the dirty laundry. And, and that's that's the most interesting part. I think even today it's going on after this article magic coming out saying, if he has to do it all over again. He would've fired everyone in brought in his own people, including and rob. So it's just never ending story. I don't have one point two million followers out there like brawny, but I definitely think people should be paying attention to what just this dysfunction going on within, the, the Lakers organization. Do you believe the part about Rich Paul going to the Commissioner of the NBA to complain about? Luke Walton as the head coach of the Lakers. Not necessarily the way it was phrased. But he did I read the article, and it did sound like he saw the Commissioner at a restaurant. And so maybe it's possible in this long conversation that went on a bunch of different topics. They asked about Luke Walton and what he thought maybe he gave his two cents. I don't think he approached the Commissioner saying, you know, we should have his job or anything, but look we heard from sources throughout the season, especially early on. Right. Lebron LeBron didn't like Luke Walton didn't want him as the coach. And those we all knew that was coming from his camp, which essentially is Rich Paul Rich Paul was at every game. He was sitting courtside. He had his c-. We I got to speak to him a lot many people did. So we thought that's where it was coming from. So the fact that he didn't want Luke Walton as his coach and wanted Tyron Lewis. The article said that didn't surprise me at all the manner in which he may have gone about it without him silver that, that kind of did, surprise me. But I wouldn't be surprised if it had been mentioned in the

"Into work, they identified Cody Bellinger, as you know, who this was when he had to face Robert gazelle men in the seventh inning, the dodgers had the one run on the board is they're trying to come back. How would you describe the first? Two months of the season for coding. Yeah. You said it, you know, who or he who should not be named public enemy number one. I would I describe it in a word historic. I wrote an article few weeks ago, just talking about older records, Cody Bellinger, had broken before the month of may. And it just seems like every day. There's another one yesterday. I guy to hit a home run and have to outfield assists in the same games in Babe Ruth tonight. First dodger player to, to have twenty home runs before the fifty fifth game of the skill Hodges and the youngest player ever on the dodgers to reach that before the age of twenty four. It's amazing what this guy is doing and to think three months ago we were talking about Bryce Harper being the everyday right fielder for the dodgers, if they were willing to, to spend the money to get him that seems like a complete afterthought now especially Bryce slumping coming into chevette serving this weekend with the way, Cody Bellinger has been played in right field to see them. I know last year, one of the. The achilles. Heels for the dodgers was their bullpen. How would you compare what they've done in the first two months of the season to what they struggle with last year? He'll be achilles heel. You know, it's funny because I think obviously the front office understand that, that has been achilles heel for them, especially in the World Series, specifically the last two years. And so they tried to instead of bargain shop. Like I've seen them do in the past with guys like Joe Blanton or Brandon Morrow where you take a flyer on a guy. He kind of get lucky turned into the setup man for you, this time they were like no, we're going to spend this off season. We're to go out and get it, and everybody was talking about rights for tweet and all these names available first signing. They did during the winter meetings with Joe Kelly that was their number one target. They watched Joe Kelley up close and personal in the World Series. Shut them down. This is the guy we want so they went and got him and it had absolutely imploded on them right now. Joe Kelley has an over eight Yara. I know he was able to get get out of the game tonight with a scoreless inning. But it's just been. Horrendous the way he's pitched so far for the dodgers, and that, that three year twenty five million dollars contract does not look too good right now for him. So I do know from sources that they have have played some calls out there. They want to see and get ahead of it. They wanna see who might be available as we get into June and July, the trade deadline some teams out there that are not in contention, even right now that might be willing to trade from bullpen pieces. Obviously, there's a lot of talk about Craig kimbrel. I know they've reached out to them. I think kindle still wants an astronomical multi year contract. And I don't think the dodgers are willing to go there, but these are names, so they know this is an issue right now. And it's something that, that they're definitely looking to fix here in the second half of the season. We head into July. He's an LA sports insider and Michael Dorte skis me from NBC, L A, joining us right now from Dodger Stadium to the dodgers do anything to honor, Bill Buckner. We had a moment of silence for Bill Buckner last night before the game. I thought that was really nice. I listen to a couple of different players and former of friends of his who came up in that big draft class guys. Like Steve Garvey, Bobby Valentine listening to a podcast with Bobby Valentine this morning talking about Bill Buckner. And as you saw on Twitter. I posted a picture of a fan wearing a Bill Buckner dodgers jersey tonight during the game. I thought that was a really nice. They did. They said do attribute before the game last night, you know, people a lot of people forget that he spent his first eight years of his career with the dodgers organization. You know, he was an all star. He almost over three hundred for the course of his career. He's remember by just that one play which is which is a mazing. But the one thing I will say he handled that one play and the history that came from there with a lot of dignity and pride. And, and with a lot of honor willing to sign photos of that moment and striking a friendship with, with multiple players. Involved. And I think that. A credit in a lesson to everybody out there that when you do make mistake, own it. And that the way you should handle it moving forward in the future. And he did that. Now's witching gears to the Lakers. Just there's so much there. Michael oma. I mean I'm wondering and you're buried in it.

NBC LA covering dodgers Lakers with us here after hours on CBS sports radio. So how in the world is this an attractive destination to a free agent? I mean it's not the only thing that's attractive. It's still lots Angeles. It's still the premier organization and they got it spend money somewhere. Right. So if you like money, which these NBA players do you're gonna get it in Los Angeles. At some point the question is, though, is, is it a premier destination for the big creatives? We're talking about the Colli Leonard the Kevin Durant, the kyri Irving's. We can even throw Kemba Walker and Klay Thompson, there to make it a full hand of ks. Right. So I don't believe for those players who can get their money anywhere. They want that they want to inherit this mess as well. And I think the biggest thing and it's the, you know, forget about what magic sad and all of that stuff. What, what I took away from that ESPN. I take issue is he was being honest, and I knew most of these things you and I have discussed it on air, but it would be hypocrisy of saying, all of these things, especially saying that, you know. Plinking who essentially is now running the basketball operations for the Lakers. Betrayed him cannot be trusted was going for his job now the reports on the facts, the home story that he's a liar. And he lies all the time, which we had also heard and other stories between Lakers beat writers, like myself throughout the season, talking about Larry Nance, and those people, so to say that, and then one breath later, magic says, but we have to support these guys, and we have to wish him the best and we have to wish for their success. Well, what did you do? Talker. Seeing those two statements astonished me. And I don't see how when you do that. Magic johnson. You then become an appealing place for those free agents who want to play for a general manager or a guy who's running basketball. Operation to Magic Johnson publicly said you can't trust. I think that's what he wanted to biggest hurdle. They're going to have to come up with. I guess it's kind of nice, it's the Rams don't have any drama currently. Yeah. Especially when, you know, involuntary OT as I was reading the transcript Aaron Donald actually being in training, the end of may which was a surprise for us, and what he was thinking about that. So, yeah, it's night and day between what's going on? You know, with the Los Angeles Rams with the Los Angeles Lakers, and even with the dodgers, Lakers. So, yeah, it's, it's a lot going on. Never a dull moment out here in LA. You gotta come out. I do like LA. I think the one time that I had to go in and out of NO twice. I had to go in and out of LAX. Those were not the best experiences of my life. We tell you really quick story I checked into a flight at LAX and the guy kept my license at the counter. So I get up to security and I'm trying to find my life ends. And I've got my boarding pass that came by my license, and I'm already running slightly late to try to get to my flight. I have to go back to the counter, and the main standing there just hands it to me. Oh my gosh is freaking out. There's a huge. Crowd. I barely made my flight. It was very traumatic. Michael. Yeah. LAX is definitely not a fun play multiple horror stories, as well. You got to go private and into Burbank. That's the way to go. But you know we got Star Wars land now. Disneyland come out to check out now that I would absolutely do. All right. You can follow Michael on Twitter at Michael j Duarte. He always joins us here live on the show, which is great right now at Dodger Stadium wrapping up dodgers Mets for NBC LA. But also all over the Lakers stories of check his out his stuff out on Twitter. I appreciate the time as always. Thank you, as always. Thank you. Hopefully, we'll have another Laker drama to talk about. It's a weekly fame by Mike actually, Amy. You know, I don't need any more Lakers drama this stuff is insane and it's hard to know what to believe, and it's hard to know what to file away as oh..

So you got the veteran smart guy, and he got the ya. Smart and then basketball, Doc Rivers a grownup. You trust him. You know, Jerry's having meetings with doc, and Michael's having meetings with docks the grownup on the basketball floor and you trust him. Hey, sometimes he benches. Good players. He goes to them and said, let's move now let's look those are the pyramid of success, the flow chart of success. Now let's look, this is a spider web. This is the Lakers current situation. So there's Jeanie Buss owns it, but she really listens. A lot to her friend, Linda Rambus, who, of course, as Mary to Kurt Rambis who just got hired in the organization. Jeannie also listens to fill.

"He protected his brand. I defended him yesterday. And he only really hammered rob Pelinka. But in reality, what also happened yesterday is and Ramona Shelburne put this out there in an article well, written today as it did create more chaos in an undermined the current structure. He has Ramona's said this time around Johnson blindsided genie, not once but twice second time came Monday morning when he went on the Airways, and hammered people rob Pelinka Tim Harris and executive and family member. They refer to each other as brother and sister magic, genies proved to be incredibly destructive, and damaging so again. Let's go back to the management. There is something called like a pyramid of success. There's a flow chart to success and let me give you an example, with the Miami Heat, where LeBron played Micky Arison a very smart thoughtful. Good. Guys. The owner at the top. And then Pat Riley has the final say, got some Huber Scott's amigo, but he runs the organization and then they found this really young talented coach. They trust Eric's pollster. That's the big three in Miami. And let's go to the warriors. Okay. So Golden State Warriors, you got Joe lak- is the Silicon Valley rich guy, the top there's a little bit of ego. But you've got Bob Myers, and Steve Kerr making the salary cap roster moves. They're the second tier lake up trust them implicitly, then you've got the big four beneath you got, you got grownups. Those are big for you. Got Steph and Durant and Thompson and greet. You may lose one, but the structure is smart. Owner too. To really brilliant guys beneath them and really big grownup. NBA bankable stars. Let's go to the ever improving clippers Steve, boomer.

"But it feels like I'm more interested in more things instead of saying, I need you to empty. The Celtics roster. I need you to empty the Lakers roster. I need you to do this, that I can take more phone calls for more people because I'm more options. Well, it gives you a little more options in just depends on how belligerent at Davis is going to be in this situation is he going to be outspoken? Is he going to voice his opinion? I understand that everyone believes that Griff has a great relationship. We're Rich Paul. And this near the but that's not the plan. The plan ain't for the relationship to keep anti David in as a pelican is also. It's it the plan is to get the Davis to a championship type organization in a big market in the big city, that's the plan. Now, if that was the plan if that was the case, then they gotta live with that plan because that's what they sowed a AD when he switched agency in a sign him. It was. Hey, we're gonna get you moved to a better place. You could make more money. It'd be more efficient and be out there little bit more because you're not gonna get those opportunities in New Orleans. That was the plan all. Of a sudden griffis their people seem to think because he has a relationship. We're rich. Paul rich Paul's relationship. His services is for the player not for the general manager. So that's why event Davis screens bloody murder. He'll get his way if he sits back in and just kinda just lets the process take its course then it'll be different. It'll be in favor of the pelicans and not in favor of him. I wonder if the Lakers are in a better position for Anthony Davis specifically because this went the way that it went that the, the Laker offer that went through last year. And it sounds like there wasn't an offer that the Lakers could put together that the pelicans we're gonna accept. They just they didn't have to do business with exactly. So there was, but now a sudden you've got different management. You've got David Griffin in there and all of a sudden the Lakers with that number four pick their package. We talk about this a, while, the Celtics have more assets the Celtics. They don't have the number four pick this upcoming year. And if you're talking about I can get Zion and another top four guy, maybe the Lakers throwing a player that, that, that package to New Orleans looks for more enticing than it did yesterday. In none of us obviously were privy to the conversations that are being had by Griff and ownership of the pelicans. But I gotta -ssume that what they wanted to do with tear, the whole thing down to start over. And if that's what they want to do. They'll looking at not just young players picks and not just picks miss draft of future drafts. Which is why when people say the Boston is still in position does better than the Lakers. This is why because. Yeah. We got a nice pick this year. But what about next year who's picks whose rights to be owned for the following year to two years? Because grip is looking to rebuild his roster probably around Zayn Williamson and to do that, you need either guys who are twenty two or younger or draft picks. That's, that's just you know what he's probably looking for. He's not legitimate trade him for another top tier player because he's rebuilding. But if I'm taking the Lakers, four, and I'm taking two or three of their young players. That's just like taking the twenty twenty..
"paul rich paul" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"And and I was talking to him about or whoever it was I was talking to. I was just talking about kind of the Lakers power structure. Right. And my understanding is that look Rich Paul, oh, you know, what it was Jackie MacMullan and was in here yesterday. And I know she also was on the Bill Simmons podcast, and we were talking about just kind of how she found out that stuff about LeBron's team. Not being all that into Luke Walton. Remember that story, you know, obviously earlier in the season. So she. Was talking about how like you can Laker games. Like, you can randomly Rich Paul will come up to you and talk to you and just like maverick Carter or whatever. So like, she's right? And those guys have a presence there. Clutch sports. And my thing is this like I'm thinking like maybe part of why rob is there is because remember rich was trying to get Anthony Davis to the Lakers. Right. That didn't happen. We know, and he may not have total control over what happens with Anthony Davis now, but we do know and I'm connecting dots here. So follow me David Griffin. Did recently take the pelicans job. David Griffin was on this show. And he raved about Brandon Ingram specifically David Griffin also revealed that him in Rich Paul had conversations about Anthony Davis. Now, David Griffin has said he'd like to keep Anthony Davis because he has relations with rich Pauline Rich Paul understands how that he's good at his job, etc. Etc. But. What if some of this is just Rich Paul gets to be the conduit between Anthony Davis and David Griffin, and rob Pelinka and Rich Paul you. I know John likes the joke about shadow boss and shadow owner and shadow this JAT OGSM what if Chris Paul Chris Paul Rich Paul is the shadow GM of sorts is the show is like a conduit in all these situations. I mean to some degree as much as it would upset Laker fans because the idea of LeBron and his and his team running roughshod all over the Lakers seems unappealing doom. If that's the best way to get Anthony Davis that may be the acceptable cost of doing business because right now, I mean with all the uncertainty about Brandon Ingram health and Lonzo ball, never staying healthy, and Kyle Kuzma, certainly not taken the step forward that the organization had hoped. You know, the Lakers may not have the best trait package out there. I Mean mean right remains now. to be seen?.

"This. This whole thing has been a dumpster fire, and it's just hard for guys. You know, we won't be professional and we wanted to do this is hard for guys. To go through what they've been through. And. To be able to come out and beat a team of that quality. I'm happy fall guys. I just thought that they they did a great job. That's the thing though, is in a lot of these situations Alvin gentry is kinda reminded us to go too far in lauding. The guys we always say you're supposed to be professionals. But to some extent, it's a tough spot to be in. We're forgetting this is sort of the Daro world opposite of what the Lakers have been dealing with where the Lakers found out all the guys that aren't LeBron James are expendable. We do not care enough to try and think about your thoughts and feelings we're going to see if we can move you on the other side. It's those guys learning they don't care with how much Anthony Davis wants to not be there anymore and has made that very publicly. So now, you're all the ones left behind now instead of you being shown your plane ticket and ultimately staying now, you have this other guy that talked openly about wanting to be anywhere. But with you guys basically saying this organization hasn't done enough. And put enough talent around me, it's the same situation, but with the shoe on the other foot in this and Alvin gentry acknowledging what I've been trying to say about. The Lakers guys. It's not always that simple. As just saying. Oh, yeah. Well, just bite your tongue and move on. Like at some point. These guys are human. It's a long season. And we're going to fifty five games or whatever they've played before the all-star break like that is started to add up with all you're absolutely right. Like the players for the Lakers have been told. They're they're not significant. Right. The players for the pelicans. If essentially been told their franchise isn't significant I mean, that's the message here. I mean, if you're playing for the pelicans, you're looking at it and saying, okay, Anthony Davis wants out we've gotten used to that. That's fine. We'll even if you get used to that you're thinking. Okay. Well, at least there's gonna be a hall that we're going to give back in return. But then the NBA comes in and says, no, no, no, you can't sit him which means every night. You're putting that treasure chest at risk for the future. And if you're playing on the team, you have no idea what that future looks like I mean, these are real world distractions that I think would affect anybody. So you look at last night's a great example, I'm not surprised Alvin gentry's, frustrated, the pelicans go and they beat the thunder. That is a quality win for a distracted. Basketball team, they beat the thunder, and the story is and rightfully should be. Well, did Anthony Davis just leave or did? He just walk out. Oh, yeah. That quote, nothing too bad for Anthony Davis is our MRI after the muscle contusion sources telling Ramona Shelburne like that's the story. Not Russell Westbrook has another triple double not anything that actually happened on the court, but that guy, and that's what it's going to be for the remainder of the year. And that's why as much as the NBA protects its on-court product. It's really doing. And this shows you again who controls one league verse another we've got plenty to get into today about commissioners of leagues and influence in the things that you deal with. But with the NBA right now who you're beholden to and all of this because as you try and do this from the league side of saying, we need to keep this player on the court because the players are our product, and all these things, etc. You're completely hamstring. The pelicans in this because now Alvin gentry's got a coach with this in mind, saying, well, this guy's not going to be part of my long term plans. How much do I really factor him in one? I've got guys I legitimately want to get a look at each night. And then, of course, from the top down in the organizations man, if he gets hurt we are screwed who's looking out for the pelicans. At this point through this entire process for Anthony Davis who's ever had the pelicans best interests in mind. Nobody Rich Paul wants Anthony Davis to go to the Lakers fine. The Lakers were going to do everything they could to make that happen. Even if it meant teetering on the line of tampering. That's fine. Everybody turns a blind. I'd all of this and the league and the pelicans in doing what is best for their fan base. And for their future of their franchise. They look at it and say, we're not gonna make moving. So we get the best possible offer, which we can't get till summer. Now, it only makes sense to protect that move. The league is working so hard to protect the league and the Lakers Rich Paul and Anthony Davis. It doesn't feel like anybody gives a damn about the pelicans. And if I were ownership or the front office of the pelicans, I would be livid because it creates this situation every single night. And there's nothing they can do about it. Now, there's not and we know in its counterpart league in the NFL if this were happening to an ownership group of one of the teams, I feel like there'd be a much bigger bit of hell raise than what we get now. Because again, the power balance is just different. Out here the power balance of a league that is governed in dictated by what the players and their agents want to do as opposed to on the other side just makes for a different feel and a spot like this were Alvin gentry again, those unenviable job in the NBA for the rest of the season bar as they go through and try and juggle all these plates. And and I'm curious how it ever gets turned back. I mean, Rich Paul with the power that he hasn't for anyone that doesn't know Rich Paul as the agent of Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Part of the group that represents all these guys which is unbelievable by the way, glow for Rich Paul in all of this. Remember the couple of years ago when Phil Jackson and all of those comments about LeBron's posse and maverick Carter. Rich, Paul Rich, Paul is now the probably the most feared guy in NBA circles is he not just because of the level of access the level of talent that he controls throughout the league. Like that guy is in the game category is the Scott Boras of the world in baseball. And for for a long time. Some of those big agent names that you've heard in football and baseball like he is that guy for the NBA. Right. And this was an inevitable inevitable part of the the the process for the players in a player empowerment league. The guys that represent the most guys that have the right guys in the right place can not only use their voice to sort of affect the outcome. They want, but they can use their voice to sort of create chaos. Rich Paul has the ability to create chaos in doing. So he's doing his job his. Job in Asian job. In theory in an agent representing bunch of players is there to represent their players to the best of their ability. Rich Paul is doing that is just the collateral damage to all of it are the teams in the NBA that are sort of now beholden to Rich Paul. And there's not an easy situation. There's not an easy fix to that. But again, this is one of those situations, and we hear it all the time in the NFL, which is they're making money like it's going out of style. So why would they change anything? All we hear about is valuations are up for all these teams, the NBA's porn and all this TV money. So what is their impetus to change what is their desire to change in any of this other than the people that own the teams, maybe, but they're putting money in their pockets. And what do they care if it inconveniences some of the people on the way down and all this? That's the other thing is money ends up being the driving force behind anything. You're going to do structurally for this league. And this leagues making a lot of money. Aren't we also seeing the haves and have not right? Like, that's why the pelicans are the pelicans are not a franchise that has at this point. And they're getting stepped all over by a player by an agent. By what the league wants? And again, nobody in that process is looking at the pelicans and say man what what's best for New Orleans and their fans, and this franchise doesn't feel like anybody cares about that. They don't care about the rising tide that lifts off ships in this. Ends up becoming. I mean have small market teams at every league not always felt like a bit of a casualty. I don't think this is anything new, but it just the newest version of it as as we said earlier, by the way through all of this. The pelicans beat the thunder last night, a big win, and Russell Westbrook. Still had a big night is the eleventh.

"Is our text line feel free. Don't I don't have a lot of Super Bowl topics today kind of moving on a little bit. But if you still have some stuff on your mind about Sunday feel free because we only ninety minutes yesterday. So whatever you wanna talk about I got my stuff. But if you got stuff feel free to let us know, and we'll cover what you wanna talk about as well, also on social media. I am at gingerly tweets wheels. Wheels with a z thirteen hundred and then the station itself. Add extra sports thirteen hundred. That's also our Facebook page, which is convenient. Because if it was like extra sports thirteen hundred one it would be really lame. But the reason why I want to mention our Facebook page is because a little bit earlier today. Myself along with J JP from ninety eight one K K FM got to throw axes we got channel our inner lumberjack. There's a local business. It's called a Jack's axe throwing and it is literally what the name of the business is they have a few different locations. What happened was they brought the mobile unit. You open up the back. It's a it's a trailer truck with a trailer. You open it up the trailer up in there are like two stumps or logs facing out at you. And you get to take axes and throw them with the idea that whoever is the most accurate is the better. Axe thrower. And this is they've been doing this since the summer, but we had a chance to have them onsite here at our studios, we're going to I'm going to post the pictures and also the video of me throwing them. So you can kind of see just how awesome it is. And while you're at it marvel at how well I picked up axe. Throwing this is my first time, and I got bullseye. I and then Brian from Jack's axe. Throwing will join me on the show in our number three to talk a little bit more about that. They're going to do leagues in all sorts of really cool stuff. So and maybe some of you have seen them out and about maybe some of you haven't. But I thought it was super cool in the sports ties there, obviously with the league starting up and everything like that. You know, you do horseshoes or you do cornhole or whatever at bars, they give you an opportunity to throw axes. It is very very cool. So Brian from Jackson's throwing will join me in our number three. And then in the meantime, I will post a video and pictures on our Facebook page here shortly. I wanted to start off the show today talking about that. Wonderful performance that the nuggets put in last night. I don't know how many of you in your pool had the pistons being the team that would end the nuggets winning streak. But if you did good on you because I certainly did not go into the game last night thinking that the nuggets would lose let alone by twenty six points. But at the same time, wouldn't you rather the final score be one twenty nine to one zero three instead of like one zero four one zero three in overtime with you know, Detroit knocking down a buzzer beater. I guess that's what I tell myself. Anyway. But not a good night for the nuggets at all Nicola Yokich was just solid. Not not what we usually expect Nicole Yokich to be second lowest scoring nights since Christmas and only had four sisters and three rebounds. Andre Drummond did a fantastic job against him defensively and. The nuggets it's worth noting that the nuggets were without joe-marie and Gary Harris, ample Sam. But when you ask Michael Malone after the game, he says that it does not matter who was playing in who was out, regardless of how many bodies we had available. We didn't defend the whole night under German dominated us thinking that third quarter. I think at forty nine in that quarter alone. They were plus twenty eight on the glass rebound margin near twenty eight second chance points. So a healthy bodies, no, healthy bodies. We got our butts kicked. Tonight's knows cases. You mentioned the glass. What do you think allowed them to be so effective from that sample? Little bit more on their than is necessary. If only added producer that would cut those off for me. Just kidding. So Andre Drummond offensively did a pretty good job on the nuggets as well. And I all I have to say to that is, you know, who would be terrific guarding Andre Drummond, Anthony Davis, but these nights are going to happen. I appreciate Michael Malone's high standards in. Him not allowing. You know, people to a said this after the warriors game like we don't flush games where we get our butts kicked like that. And last night's another one of them. So I appreciate that. Michael malone. Takes that road and says now we're not gonna burn the tape. We're not gonna flush it were, you know, we're going to be held accountable for how terrible we played against really a dumpster fire of a basketball team. I mean, they really are. They're mess. Blake Griffin is not meshing. Well with that team. There's some stuff in the locker room. That's not. That's not great the chemistry on that team's not good. And they're tied up with huge contract for Drummond Griffin. Reggie Jackson prior to Palmer high school. He makes a ton of money. So they're kind of stuck with what they got. And it's not going well, but they still were able to handle defeat. The Denver Nuggets. So not a great. It's not the start of the road trip to timber wolves game once the other day, but certainly not a great way to start off the week. They'll be back in action tomorrow night against the Brooklyn. Nets one other basketball thing just while we're on the subject here. The breaking news of the day when it comes to the NBA is that the Lakers have pulled out of their trade negotiations with the pelicans just to catch you up on the series of events. We have been talking about this for the last couple of days. But what happened was last night the the Lakers sent in their godfather offer the offer that that the pelicans cannot refuse. They offered Lonzo ball. Brandon Ingram Kyle Kuzma, the expiring contracts of rage on Rondo and. Who was the other expiring deal land? Stevenson and two first round picks all of those for one Anthony Davis. That was the Lakers. Chips to the middle. We're going all in this is what we got three young players to expiring contracts. Two first round picks. You have a huge future and a nice base to build off of with those three young players plus two first round picks. Can we have Anthony Davis? And the pelicans came back and said we like the offer by we would prefer that you do four first round picks instead of two. And according to reports, the Lakers said that is like gem, truly truly outrageous, and we're done we're done talking. So with Anthony Davis is going to be traded. It appears that it will not be to the Lakers at least by February seventh which is on Thursday. Now for those of you who are hoping that the nuggets get involved in. I would be one of those people. You would hear that trade and say, oh my goodness. There's no way if the nuggets made a similar offer, they would lose Harris and Murray and porter and mill sap and Monte Morris and to like, it would be too much, and I would agree with you. I all I wanna keep either Harrison Murray in the back court preferably Murray. But I can't give away both guys in my back court if I'm the nuggets, but I have a theory about the way the pelicans are handling the Lakers. Do not forget that. The Lakers more specifically LeBron James is colluding to get Anthony Davis to the Lakers. He is buddies with Rich Paul Rich Paul is the agent for Anthony Davis. So maybe not collusion coercion. Whatever you wanna call it. The Lakers are doing you know, shady business practices to try impinge pigeonhole the pelicans into to bird things trade to trading. Anthony Davis to the Lakers. I will only go to the Lakers. And then I mentioned yesterday the two additional teams coming up the clippers and the the box. Like, it's not the bucks thing is not legitimate, many people around the league feel like it's Anthony Davis just making it seem like he's more open to going other places. But at the end of the day is still really only interested in a long term future with the Lakers as we currently sit. So he wants to go Lakers. Lebron is telling Anthony Davis is agent that he should totally come to LA. If I'm the pelicans. I absolutely get back at the Lakers. I think that that's what Dell dams is doing del dams for a time wasn't even returning the Lakers phone calls. I think what he's doing is. He saying I don't like the way that you guys Lakers have been acting in the overt. Pursuing of our player who is under contract for the next eighteen months. I don't like what you're doing. So you know, what if you call me if you wanna trade for him, we're gonna make you give us everything you're not gonna other than LeBron you won't have a single asset left for the next half decade. And you're going to truly go with LeBron and Anthony Davis, and you can grab Carmelo Anthony. And you can get Tim Hardaway junior when he's bought out by the Knicks or the Mavericks excuse me, you could get Andrey. Join you could get all these buyout guys. But we're not we're going to ask for exactly what we want. And we're not negotiating I applaud del damps because I don't like the way that big market teams Red Sox Yankees Lakers. Dodgers, celtics. I don't like the way that they conduct themselves sometimes because they they don't care. They know everybody wants to play for their teams. So they do whatever they want. And no one says, boo. Well, here's a small market standing up and saying no, we're not just going to roll over and allow you to have the next super team in LA after you overtly win after our player by LeBron saying he wanted him here. And also LeBron whispering in Anthony Davis agents ear. I say all that. To say if you are a team that's not the Lakers. I don't think you give up hope of landing Anthony Davis. I think what the pelicans told the Lakers is only between the pelicans. And the Lakers. I do think if somebody came in with a decent offer for Anthony Davis. Indecent is still taking a lot of assets. There's no doubt about that. But I don't believe that. The pelicans are going to ask for four first round picks from the nuggets or from the raptors, I don't believe it. I think that they're trying to stick it to the Lakers. And I say good on them. Because here's the other part the late. We found this out with the Carmelo Anthony trade. If a big market team is desperate enough for a star. They will do whatever it takes messiah Jerry got the Knicks to give in and give them a good hall of young players liked Nilo gala Nari. Raymond. Felton Wilson Chandler, all a part of that deal. Timofey MAs Goff. They got that. Remember the year that Carmelo Anthony walked it was the trade deadline deal. The year. Anthony's contract was up. Anthony Davis is still eighteen months away from hitting free agency. So if you're the pelicans, you're saying there have been other instances where these big market teams have caved in given whatever small market wanted for their star. So you know, what Lakers you're always going to be there? Because the longer that you go without a star paired with LeBron James the wine ear King James is going to get King James is gonna turn into king Joffrey NBA spoiled brat, and he's going to be rob Pelinka's ear imagine ear and complaining and saying I need you to get me Anthony Davis and one they're going to cave. Maybe they won't get off. Offer that they ask the Lakers to give them today. But the Lakers are always going to be willing to throw in almost everything to get Anthony Davis. So the pelicans can go ahead and name their prize knowing that the Lakers will eventually cave because you have to keep LeBron happy or he can be an absolute nightmare to deal with two eight six zero zero four six. Based on.

Let's say that Rich Paul says to New Orleans. AD will only sign an LA. That's it. Yeah. Multiple reports Dany wouldn't care. He would trade form anyway and the. Tatum. What I think he might do is then refused to potato in the deal. And if he refuses to put Tatum in the deal, I think the Lakers deal is as good as anybody and that you're drink, but I do want, Michael here's one thing. I do agree with you about I do not think after listening to fifteen people talk about this. I do not think that Anthony Davis will be traded in the next nine days, which is which is being stubborn by New Orleans. Right. I think that there's too that. There's too many things that new warlanes feels would play in their favor if they wait. Let's first what number one they get Boston in the in the mix, but they get forty Forty-six ideal. So Michael if I'm right, and they do not trade him the next nine days. Do you? Let him play. Yes. To just get out. Why? Because Davis wanna play for team. Yeah. He doesn't have to twenty rocket marketability anymore value. Why not pull a Levy on belt? I just don't think that would look good. So at this point if your employer will not so I've been in the spot. Yeah. Mason got the blue flu, right? I got the blue flu stop coming to work. I said my I mean, as my agent said, your your hair hurts your teeth, it you can't come into work. You know, what alternately I was able to pull the trick. And I was able to get what I wanted to in this particular scenario, I'll be Rich Paul be UB. Dell. Dell. Anthony wants traded. Well, that's nice. But we don't want to trade him. Okay. We are going to make things very difficult for you. I don't think you will because that's not Anthony's makeup. No. But it's my makeup. I'm not worried about you know, it's my makeup. I'm the one that's going to make life difficult. And I'm not afraid I'm not afraid to I'm agent, and I'm going to make life difficult for you. And I am going to struct Anthony not to play. I don't think we'll do that. I'm going to I am as agent. I am going to instruct him not to play except my premise, I'm going to start light. But that's not the Anthony Davis. I know he's too much of a competitor respect for his team. The Anthony Davis, you know, wasn't ever going to request to trade, and he's already done that. Why do you? Yeah. It's it is a situation where the pelicans control the pelicans control it and his left the room for some reason. Oh, because he couldn't ago she ate with Rich Paul. Yeah. He couldn't associate with Rich Paul what what Anthony Davis to needs to do is to be very definitive here. He needs to say, the only place I will play is the Lakers, right? We change it ended up stored. But it's it's it's just like like anything else the pelicans control it. And and does Anthony Davis not control it because I can't you do what I just said. Because the I if if I'm the pelicans, it's I control in for the rest of this year. And all I'm not playing the rest of the year. Okay. Players wouldn't do that. You can't do that. No, no.

"Molly hatchets flirting with disaster old rock song from the seventy s and I was like I wonder where there's some areas we might conflict with disaster in the financial and retirement realm. So I thought well paid. I knew you would come up with some. I was waiting to hear. What is well. You know, I had I had riff on had. You know, I was listening to the radio. And I was like, you know, what disaster came on. I was like all right. We're going to come up with something. So I think I got a couple of things I want to talk about here today on the program guys some places where maybe we're flirting with disaster. And we don't even know it. We would be remiss if we didn't talk about the ticking tax time bomb that we all kind of are, you know, have kind of brewing in the background there as we're getting through to retirement. What am I talking about here? Well, here's the thing. You know, I look at the I call tax diversification. And there's four predominant buckets here. You know that have different tax nature's the first bucket your taxable bucket. Then you've got your tax deferred bucket in. Ironically. This is were in a lot of cases were most of the money ends up because it's raw are qualified plans or at and so unless you have a substantial non qualified account in other words, non investment or non retirement account. It's not unusual for somebody to come into our office in ninety ninety five percent of the money sitting in this tax deferred bucket which case. I always say the government loves you because about one third of that money is going to go to the government. Then the question is at what tax rate is going to go to the government. Because if I I always say you look at that period from the thirties later thirties, two eighty three eighty four the average marginal tax bracket was around seventy percent in could we go back there. Absolutely. We're going to go back there. I mean, social security's going to go broke in twenty years, we're going to have to raise taxes. So if you're sixty now, you're going to be twenty years eighty you might have another fifteen or twenty years to go in all of a sudden taxes get checked up to fifty sixty percent. You wanna have some money in that tax bucket? Again, we call tax diversification. So you've got taxable tax deferred tax free in the fourth buckets, the estate income tax Reebok, it ultimately you want to pass that money is officially as you can to the kids free of any tax if possible, and if you set your state of properly you can't avoid putting yourself in a. Tenable tax situation, and certainly you can start tax diversifying. If you have no money in that tax Reebok and our goal is to try to start moving money over on a year-by-year basis, depending on what tax bracket, you're in to see if we can get you a little bit more diversified because the year that you're going to go on vacation, and you want an extra thirty or forty thousand in. It's gonna push in the next higher bracket point. Sure is nice to have an alternative to look at in terms of say having to take this from the tax free account. So I don't get stuck with paying sixty cents on the dollar or sixty percent tax. I want to go on vacation with you thirty or forty grand. Hey that'll work. Yeah. Exactly. No, I I completely agree with that. We we actually always sent out a questionnaire when whenever someone comes into CS and say, what is your biggest regret on there? A lot of the times. It says wish I didn't sit out two thousand nine. But a lot of the times it also says I wish I would have contributed to a Roth. Okay, built that bucket up earlier on in my career that doesn't mean you shouldn't contribute to it on the back after you're fifty years old. You actually have a catch up provision of a thousand dollars if you can contribute that sixty five hundred to a Roth start building up that piece of your portfolio, if you're higher income earner your phased out of a Roth their different options to to create tax Rian comes dreams in retirement. Come see us, and let us tell you tell you about a few of those ways. Absolutely, no question. Not just a raw. Specially if you're still working in your fully funding that the 4._0._1._K any sale kept max sat out at work, and I go with some additional after tax dollars. There's some really interesting alternatives that can put position at being able to take that money on a tax free basis. Which can really make all the difference. Again, your retirement. Here's the thing. Taxes are gonna go up. You can bet your bottom dollar on that. Because as we get more and more desperate. We see our deficits balloon from from twenty one trillion to two by twenty five to twenty. We're looking at twenty five trillion dollars. I mean, it's it's going to get there in the government's reaction is gonna beat increase taxes. We're going to go back to where we at at one point in time. And and not only that they'll continue deluding the currency. That's a whole nother radio show. But you gotta be prepared. And the only way you can do that is to be proactive now, nobody likes to pay a tax day. They don't have to. But eventually you're going to have to because that tax deferred account. They have something called this required. Minimum distribution. So we're gonna look at your at your twelve thirty one balance, and you got this little divisor number and that divisor number you divide into your account. You gets smaller and smaller, which means the percentage gets larger. They're going to force you to pull that money out of that account because they want their taxes. And so you have very little control over that account in less, you moved into some portion of it into a tax free program that allows you to pull that money out down the road on a tax rebate yen right now taxes are kind of on sale say what you will pretty darn low right now. So. Yeah. Oh, yeah. That's the thing. Yeah. You have to look out. I mean, it wasn't the huge break that we have Reagan where it went from seventy to fifty two twenty eight now, we're right? But still it is lower contrast that with where they were at work for a long time. We're batting in that seventy percent range. I mean, that's untenable. I mean, I can't even imagine. I couldn't I couldn't process that. So point the high point was ninety four percent. Can you imagine it? They took it all. That was the the joke with Reagan. He goes I would make a couple movies way back when when he made those movies and egos the federal tax was ninety four the California tax back when they were paying more taxes six they literally took. I would I continue working, right? I'll make to take six months off. Yeah. Back then you just might as well, just raise your own crops and stuff just go from there. Feed yourself that way. Well, we're talking of health we're talking about where ways we can flirt with disaster. And of course, the ticking tax time bomb is one that you certainly have got to address and have a conversation with your financial adviser. And if you don't have one or if you'd like to get a second opinion about your retirement plan that you may be having place or maybe you don't have one at all reach out to the team at r w Paul and associates, Steve Paul Rich, Paul and all everybody over there at the office. Great group of folks, there are certainly a good resource tap into two four eight three zero five ninety nine eleven it's two four eight three zero five ninety nine eleven guys. Let's move to the classic sixty forty portfolio for years that has been the approach recommended too many retirees what's your take on this for years. The sixty forty four you're really has been the the approach recommended for most retirees and essentially what we're talking about. Here is sixty percent large-cap forty percent bonds that was the standard bearer but in the current investing environment. This may not be the best idea if you're retired or you're planning on retiring, very soon. Yeah. We'll look way back when when that was the standard portfolio. I mean, the sixty forty rule was was really created when bond yields average what eight percent the stock market was averaging twelve it was a different time back, then it's just not the same anymore. Yeah. You're right, but volatility increasing interest rates rising perverse set it and forget it sixty four portfolio is it may be in trouble. What's the biggest goal in retirement, generating income? It's not gonna generate the income that you need. It's not going to the yield is no longer eight percent. It's not even close. Right. It's not a couple of different options. I mean, you can move more to value positions increase your equity position if you're younger investor absolutely increase equities. I'm almost one hundred percent equities in my portfolio. But I have another twenty five thirty years until I'm looking at retirement until I'm looking at spending that money, so it's it's a little bit different situation. But if you're a retiree look at increasing your value position. Increase the yield through equities. You can do that. But you're bringing a little bit more volatility into the portfolio, but you know, you have that strong yield that strong dividend coming in. So you're able to do that you can create safe income in a way another option that you could look at us. I really think they'll sixty forty portfolio is really now the sixty thirty ten portfolio where we're looking at sixty percent equities thirty percent may be going into an income driven vehicle fixed index annuity and ten percent. Maybe in bonds that actually is an approach that has been a spouse just recently by Roger Ibbotson, he's a PHD. In fact, professor emeritus a finance in the Yale school management. So this is a pretty bright finance guy in I'll just quote from his white paper here. He says given the current low yield environment bond returns for the next several years or likely be based entirely and yield. Before we we were in that back in the Carter days. You get a sixteen percent CD. Those are gone rates have been coming down since then to extremely low numbers. He goes on to say, although the lower risk may be appropriate. As we age the returns made disappoint or be insufficient to maintain necessary income in retirement, the paper focuses on on capped vix index, which if structured properly can help control financial market risk mitigate longevity risk and may outperform bonds over time, and he gets pretty concrete evidence in his very very comprehensive research in in this white paper here, and he looks at the market all the way back to nineteen twenty seven over three year annualized return basis, and he looks as a sixty forty portfolio stacks and bonds. He looks at sixty twenty slash twenty four that stocks bonds with a an index contract and a sixty forty with stocks and just fixed index contracts, quite amazingly if you look at a ten percent. Return time period. You're looking at the stocks and bonds, sixty forty producing a four point one percent return, the stocks bonds, and the the fixed index contracts producing a five point eight percent return in the sixty forty stocks and just fix index contracts producing a seven point five percent return in he looks at a downmarket a flat market, Anna a substantially upmarket twenty percent, and the sixty forty stocks and fix index contract wins every time and more protection on the downside. And and capturing more of the upside versus holding the bond positions folks were in arising interest rate environments, we already had one insurance rate increase. We're looking at what Steve what three more this year yet?.
