Fresh update on "pelton" discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast

"You probably shouldn't take them at all in the lottery. And there are some exceptions. Turner incidentally is one of those but in the other reason candidate. Answer your question. As i understand it about the mobile stuff and harkening back to my days as a draft analyst. That's very started with real part of it is because those guys are bigger stronger than their competitors and their film often looks good like you can think there are there different different examples of it and whereas with guards like trae young. I think you have to be looking and trae young had better film than a lot of guards but you had to look more specifically kind of parse out the things that were good in the things that were bad whereas centers can be more overtly dominant in lower levels. And because this idea kevin pelton talk about this well that athleticism based strengths. Those actually dissipate over time. Like your your athleticism pizzas really really young. Whereas you're still peak. Use your skill. Development runs longer in it. Outpaces the physical degradation. So that's why guys peak often in the mid mid to late twenties ridge. Yeah yeah so. My dog was basically english. A lot of wishful thinking with the prospect centers. There is yet look embiid. Yokich in towns like they're like anomalies like complete anomalies. Like just the best passing big ever. Embiid is probably one of the most skilled bigs ever towns the shooting. Big ever like i. I think there's a lot of wishful thinking when you look at center prospects that more often than not just doesn't work out the i'd be interested to see whether at this point in time centers have lower hit rate in the lottery than other players. I would guess probably like bam d'amato bonuses to find pick the at eleven when he was drafted there have been some hits at center. And now i think probably the bigger issue that i have sometimes is just with the fit of some of these guys who were drafted like wise win with the warriors and jackson hayes with the pels though he he diner actually starting to play together a little bit better. Because they're this point. Zion thing i think is really opened up the floor for them a little bit. But that's a little bit more of it a you know a and it's a big better. Just got aboard disappointing in general now when danny said about you know if you're not gonna take a guy in the top five. Why take center in the roth lottery. John hollinger back in like maybe oh two or three did a study of lottery centres. Who weren't drafting the top three. And he found that they all sucked and back then. His theory was the guy's really any good and he's the center he would be drafted in the top three. Because has like this huge heart on for centers. So that i think is a little bit where people understand. The value of center isn't really any greater than any other position. And so i think that's normal as been you have had some successful picks later in the lottery in terms of senators. So i don't know the answer to that but my initial thought is that maybe you're being a little bit too hard on some of these senators that that are draft the lottery in that there are some pretty good centers out there and also. I agree with the idea that hey a center being the best player on a championship team. Or even some of these highest highest level of teams having centers out there on the floor of any games doesn't really work that well but there's also twenty five teams. That aren't going to championship contention every year and those teams need good players and sometimes good players are center. I just just as a quick thing. I think that's an interesting thought to go through. I wanted to look through the these smaller point guards that have been drafted in the top five of the last couple years. So twenty twenty nine twenty twenty. That would i wouldn't say anybody was is big enough. That he doesn't qualify on nineteen. John mirant garlan will see wiping jaws. Obviously doing well but garland will see how that works out on. Eighteen trays is probably the only guy who qualifies. he went fifth seventeen. I guess i guess. I'll put marco folds ball and faulkner so kind of a mixed track record there and then sixteen and top five. Okay yeah and then. And then chris dun. He's a little bit bigger. Like he was in many ways to the track. Record of drafting Guards isn't necessarily great either like it's there an not for wings. Either you can think about josh jackson or various other drag bender light drug bender. There are a lot of a lot of different types of a lot of different types of guys that have failed going high but we can go to ashim your next. Hi can you hear me. Yes yeah the. The downside of these these tech issues is now everyone to ask him for thinking here again it is. It is bad radio for the podcast. But unfortunately i don't know if there's a way around A question about The rule What would you guys be in favor a long game. And what do you think How has it really perform turns protecting the owners from itself versus Providing flexibility for. I love the rule. I don't think it should be weakened or modified at all. I think that it protects teams from their absolute worst impulses and it is not preventing teams from being really really good. They're different circumstances. Even somebody like the nets who of the players that they have worked like homegrown or anything. They still have this very good foundation. They gave up a ton for hardened but did it but the i. I don't think that it's limiting teams flexibility too much especially now that they're it's becoming more in vogue to include pick swaps and everything else so i you know i did this piece for real. Gm years ago going through basically why the stepping existent because that was something. I wanted to look up. Why is it called the stepping role in all this stuff would you. Would you go through it and look at that. They're not gonna rattle off all now. Just the cavs of that era protecting us from themselves in like in especially specifically sacrificing the future for the present that is important enough for competitive balance on both sides of the coin. both making a team non-competitive for a half decade plus and also theoretically giving those players to really good teams like the celtics benefit a lot from step from cepheids aggressiveness and incompetence that both of those things are bad. Enough that justifies curtailing team spending teams willing to to do all that stuff as i said in my chat today. I'm not in favor of any salary capital. That would make things less complicated because it means that my job was worthless but On a serious note. I agree if you. I don't think that this nets renaissance probably would have happened if they hadn't at least had you know what one other pick at least something to happen anyway because it only ended up being that twenty seventeen swap a that they got but that they're able to retain at least but in some of these teams like i don't think that the drew trade i don't know if the hardened trade Those are looking pretty decent for right now. The co or the i should say the pg trade one of those three is going to turn into a problem in those teams are going to be good at those times have given up a lot of picks and so do at least force them to retain a few of them i think is important and also even if the team is continuing to be good for them to retain those picks and then they can always just trade them at the point of that draft as wall but at least you have a little bit more certainty about where you are and what the pick is when you make. That doesn't even really hamstring you. That much going forward also thing i'll say is i think I rarely disagree with the bobby marts and zach lowe. But i think they've been a little bit too unequivocal about..

"Are on their team is a nice complimentary p still waiting for the kings to develop enough of the the really good players to push him into that complementary role he belongs it their on off numbers with him and they. Obviously there's a ton of noise. But they're plus like i. I don't have it in front of but the gap is big their minus a lot with harrison barnes off the floor and plus something which for the kings plus any or maybe just slightly my might be there slightly minus the kings are never really plus a lot in anything. But but i just. That's my ode to harrison barnes. All right mr pelton sons celtics what you have another point to make. I have a kings player to talk about which is alita who's been hasn't played a kings player anymore. Basically sits in a hoodie on the bench. It looks quite keep crosses. His legs like he's at a cafe and europe. It looks quite comfortable. So come rescue. Never the appeal to this is a good nba player. You could help contender. Let's let him on a contender. Who's going to read. That is for sure going to happen and You know similar to what we've seen with. Jj redick being out of the rotation new orleans. That's clearly a were just gonna probably put you on ice until we trade you. Yeah i agree with the bailey is good you know. I predicted before last season that he would be traded. Because when you think of sort of glut of power forwards they have between bagley and barnes and bailey so it was very good to be very clear no matter how you juggle the rotation someone was gonna lose minutes and now they've essentially abandoned bagley at center. He never plays center anymore. They've just decided we can't defend with him at center so there really is just no room for him but he i think he's good. He shoots the hell out of it. He's got a nice feel for the game. he's a little bit feisty. Defensively at someone will rescue him. Just gonna rather than later. He's being wasted right now. All right mr pelton. Thank you for helping me navigate this confusing. Nba season as always enjoy seattle. And we will. We will catch up again soon. I'm sure.

"Guard at one point in a lineup. With larry nance andre drummond. And i think thon maker and that exact moment i did begin to question what i was doing with my life when dean wade was at shooting guard and my brain actually registered about decastro using dean waited shooting guard. I stepped out of my spy. Bodies stepped out on my soul. And had a moment where i was like. What am i. What am i doing like this is crazy. Anyway i enjoyed a kudos to gb bigger staff for getting them victory without anything resembling. No one. I don't know i watch the game. You could've given me to guesses game. And i would have maybe gotten it. On the first try anyways t they have now moved up to twenty eight then shot qualities. I look at it because i did this yesterday. San san antonio is behind them given their their heavy diet amid rangers and orlando is number. Thirty in the way. Orlando the least interesting six two team in nba. History i will i look. I said the same thing i said about. The bucket applied the clippers. If if the bucks was a failure of execution and in whatever else. The clippers felt like a broader spiritual failure. And it's harder to know what that means going forward and told. I was talking to richard jefferson about this earlier this week when phoenix came back from thirty one down on them the other day and got that game within two. I did have this feeling in my gut of again. It's happening again. And i just wonder if they're feeling that or not but talent wise. There's good there's good as anybody in the league. T one nine i. Maybe i think. I think the lakers are a little bit better than i think. The lakers deserve a small edge. But the clippers are really really good. And i do have in a vacuum where i don't remember that. They play in the same conferences. The lakers i do have a little bit more faith in them as a postseason team that do in the bucks but the bucks play in the somewhat. Weaker conference of the east is in that week anymore. I i agree with that with. There's just not a clear power in eastern conference that standing between the box and the finals. Someone is going to emerge out of that group. But we don't know yet in the same way that we do in the west. I mean i think the other question is like. Obviously you had the issues in the locker room last year behind between the holdover group and the client paul george and it seems like paul george in particular and that's one of the reasons that mantras harrell was no longer. There is to be a reason that lou williams is no longer there. Pass the trade deadline because he doesn't feel especially without heroin his running mate as indispensable to them anymore. So if you get someone who's slightly more reliable point guard option to take a little of that of is play because he's ever more like his assist rate is better than the average point guard. This season it any start member. He started this way last year too when his assistant was through the roof. I'm like god. Kawais like sorta gradually came back down to slightly above normal kuwaiti levels. What we saw this movie but yes to your point. Certainly the trade for luke kennard. One of my first three reactions was ooh. That feels like that. Feels like a hedge. Against the lou williams. Move down the line. That feels like a lou williams replacement potentially we will have to see but both these teams are off to. I mean by record starts. That don't really get you. All that excited i mean. The bucks are five and three to clippers or six and three stylistically interesting. And and i do think they will be. You know they will be heard from but again we're only ten games in. We're all trying to figure out what's real and what's not. I know you have your small sample size theater. Podcast coming up with wendy and the hoop collective. I think this weekend right. So i'll be eagerly listening to that any last point you wanna make about either these These would be should be contenders. Are one last staff for you so if you look at through eight games the most inconsistent teams in nba history in terms of their point differential game to game. These two teams are among the four most inconsistent teams in nba history. Which makes sense given the blowouts that you know my milwaukee in miami. The clippers had to dallas all four of the top. Four teams are from this season. So that's what we're dealing with right now. It's the least consistent game two game season in. Nba history through this point. That's a great stat. And i know you wanted to say something else before we finish this. Podcast yeah wanted to take a minute here to highlight our editor royce web. Because friday is his last day at espn after nearly two decades and definitely wanted to highlight is important to so much of what you've read on espn dot coms nba page over that time in his role is nba. Deputy editor from two thousand four through two thousand and fourteen royce played a key role in shaping what modern nba coverage would become back when royce moved into that position the nba page on espn reflected the sensibility of newspapers and hadn't really yet capitalized on the potential. The internet provided together with former senior. Deputy editor chris ramsey royce thought. Bigger helping bring in john hollinger and give him a prominent platform long. Before analytics was a buzzword highlight chad ford's draft coverage and eventually add henry. Abbott his groundbreaking through hoops site. So many of the features we now take for granted is part of mba coverage on espn dot. Com elsewhere were influenced by royces creativity and willingness to try new things from nba rank..

"One hundred six allowed one hundred six's like probably a top five six defense right now on the team level cohen. Pg one sixteen scored ninety seven allowed so the big picture. Metrics are good. Marcus morris gest came back they do face a somewhat interesting decision whether they should start him or keep the bottom i. I'm shocked at what they've gotten from a tomb. I thought you was about done. He did nothing in charlotte. I mean really nothing by the end and he's done a whole lot of something for them. He's making shots. He's guarding elite players. Some nights so that we don't have to. I don't really know what the right answer to that question is. I don't even know that it matters if it doesn't matter to marcus morris who reportedly told them. Hey stick with nick. For at least a game i you know. It's just nice to have another piece back another player back because the one concern ahead. Was this reggie jackson lou williams luke kennard threesome. They're bringing off. The bench is not is not palatable against good playoff lineups defensively and so with one more bigger guy you can excise somebody from that from that threesome if you need to i mean emerges so big for them because you looked at what they did this offseason before they picked him up and it was like okay. I like what they've done with the starting five here. You know. I think baca is Safer finishing option and mantras hair was going to be come postseason. But they've left themselves awfully thin behind this group and zoo botches zubieta still reliable player and and obviously louisville but that type seven. There were big questions. And turning that into i guess canard then so was eight but turn between turning that into a nine player group that you can really feel you can trust in. The playoffs is really enormous difference. And you know. I think we've just come to learn now that anytime that there is a you know talented french player later in their career. Who's struggling on a charlotte team that is in the lottery that you just have to pick that player up and they are immediately going to be revitalized when they get to a new team. I guess you've come up with another goodwill for us. I guess the only area that's a little concerning to me is much was made of how tyler lou was likely going to Put the pedal to the metal and playing small and shooting a lot of threes. And that really hasn't happened yet. They're shooting a little more threes. I think tiny bit more threes but the alarm bell to me. It's not an alarm bell but it's a bell of some kind maybe belly put around the cat's neck or something only the sons and the magic are generating fewer shots at the rim and the clippers are like twenty first in free throw rate so there's sort of a rim pressure element. That's missing a little bit. Maybe some of that is sort of built into the exchange of harrell In terms of the style that they play. And i do think tie has got them moving a little bit more on offense and it shows you how simple it could be. They're not running anything complicated. It's not like princeton offense. It's not elevator. Doors assigned thing sexy. It's just throw the ball to the elbow youtube screen for each other on the left wing. You to screen for each other on the right wing may be back. Cut it sometimes instead of coming off a pin down. And they're getting easy buckets for it and from it and the first the first set of movements will flow into the second set and then the third. It's just it doesn't have to be anything like high level it's just basic flowing basketball and he's he's instituted a few easy sets that get them moving a little bit. I do think that's helpful. The rim shots. Though is something i will monitor. I think it's a concern. I came out of the deep dive on the clippers. Less optimistic about them. After that impassioned speech about why they belong in the first tier than i was before i mean they're you know the second spectrum quantified shot quality measure that we talk about from time to time in terms of you know what would an average team or an average player shoot on the cabinet talk about it at dinner from time to time second spectrum. Data was strictly on this podcast. Their second from the bottom in that metric so far so we can. i guess. Who's last you know i. I'm not sure. I remember off the top of my head. Okay right. I expect you to have all the data already. I would guess we've one would be my guess for last. I don't know why they're not taking any threes but it does and they played an entire game and what it without a point guard. I watched that game. You know while the world is watching denver. Dallas and i watched the end of denver dallas some of us glutton for punishment or some of we glutton for punishment that's grammar rule. I still don't really understand. Said you know what. I gotta get this play broccoli with no cheese. No salt no nothin' and aside a cauliflower uncooked and watch the grizzlies without their players. Play the cavs without half their players and at one point dean wade who i somehow mistake for both twain. Wade and chandler parsons at the same time settled mistake him mistaken for most from the office or most from the office i would estimate seven people listening to this podcast right now. Have any houdini. Weight is.

"You're kind of always on the clock and in aging supporting cast. Which is i think one thing. We talked about the last time that we were on. We had this discussion that you know dante. David is the only guy that's kind of on an upward trajectory of that group. So you know if there's going to be growth and and it's got to be him and if he does become that thirty eight percents three point shooter. You mentioned earlier then you know. He's a pretty reasonable facsimile of don donovan. And maybe the fact that you weren't able to trade him for bogdonovich. No longer stinks as much bucks. Starters are plus fifty in ninety minutes in next to that i wrote l. Then that's that's a lot of points. Lana as a big old plus Yeah and you look around the east. I mean this is going to be a very weird season with people in and out of the lineup. And i think we're going to get to the end of the regular season. If we get to the end of the regular season and say boy i really is brooklyn happiness brooklyn. How could what. That was a weird season for that team. Lotta guys are now the lineup and some that guy got hurt and whatever good is that team. How does that team you know you look around the east and it's brooklyn. I mean katie's missed the game. Kyrie's miss gains miami's sort of scuffling about phillies off to a great start now. Obviously the seth curry thing to deal with boston's been up and down but finding ways. I think to their credit to win games. I you know you don't know what to make yet of a lot of these teams also have this feeling like i'm not sure we're gonna know quite what to make of him when the games really start to count. I feel like yeah. The bucks record is underwhelming so far. But i feel pretty confident like i'm going to know what to make of this team by the end of it if they stay healthy and avoid the pitfalls that are sitting out there for everybody the starting five i mean i think the question going into the playoffs will be. What can this bench give them you know. Are they going to be matchups. Where did you augustine. In britain forbes. That's just too small backcourt where you can't play those guys at all. You know you'd think back to like the way. Toronto had to adjust against philadelphia's size in the twenty nineteen conference finals and they do have other other options there torrey. Craig hasn't played a whole lot yet because he had the nasal fracture. But you know they're gonna have some options although they are somewhat limited from the fact that you know you're at a smaller roster and to those spots or on second round draft picks although sam merrill has been surprisingly affective in his limited action lavar as has an aura. Who's again shooting like. Fifty percent from three on a limited limited sample size. Yeah toward credit. Good name coniston's missed. Some games recently have option. I do agree their bench trends small in not very good defensively. But you know again. The bench will shrink in the playoffs. Whoever survives that shrinkage will be surrounded by very good defensive players when they are on the floor. So maybe it doesn't matter. Let's turn to the clippers third and offense twentieth in defense And you don't sitting kind of where you would expect them to sit overall in the league so far minus one absolute shellacking against The dallas mavericks when collided in play and they lost by a thousand points. The clippers are six and three plus three net rating which is okay against skewed very much by that by that one gigantic loss without their best player. Bacha i think is fit in well can. Art is fit in pretty well. You know this is the other. Wait and see team right. I mean was this the team you think we disagreed upon. It is yeah. I think they belong in that same here with the lakers. I mean i picked the lakers to win the title this year. They're the safer. Bet the clippers might just be jinxed is a franchise. We can't rule that. I think at this point. We really can't rule it out. I you don't me. I'm not a big jinx. Though i do believe in the basketball gods and the subset of basketball gods that are the lottery. God's but for some reason. I just i after the denver thing. I've really did have a moment where i thought to myself. I wonder if all this metaphysical stuff is. Actually real and the clippers will just never win like twice a decade. You lose three one lead in the second round series because of the fact that the other team is unsustainably hot in terms of its shooting and your unsustainably called that. That shouldn't happen twice to the same team in that short. Appear seed doc rivers face as game. Seven was getting away from him in the clippers and it was just as stoned face like not com. Like you could tell behind the exterior that like like. It was like a clenched exterior stone. Face where you you knew behind it like he was thinking about. Josh smith and corey brewer. And and how is this happening again. But he wanted to put forth put forth a calm visage but behind it. You could tell again. So maybe maybe that should be the discount. Maybe we need to get the witch the witch from the ringer. Nba show to come on and discuss. This will don't we need to stage the arena is. Isn't that it. i don't know. I'm just saying we need. Maybe i'm your the wrong. You're the exact wrong person for this discussion. Actually need to get the polar opposite of you to discuss whether the clippers are actually. I need to find a psychic or something. That is correct. But i i mean the fact that the clippers are now. Three into against the lakers in the last two seasons one of those two losses came when they were awfully short handed because of the corentin situation in the first season game in the bubble i if they can get to a lakers matchup at some point in the playoffs. I feel pretty good about the clippers. Chances and how well they match up in that series and that's why they do belong in that top tier when you said if they can get to that match up when you said that sentence did lightning strike outside. Your house. didn't see it. I will grant you that. The clippers should be like i picked. The clippers won the championship last year. I think they're awesome. I think baca is just a hand in glove fit for that roster as as the pick and pop guy who can shoot threes in protect the rim kenney still switch. Maybe sometimes a kind of know that you want to do it. A lot against the elite point guards. Yo lebron maybe. I don't know maybe sometimes They are tied with the bucks. Is the number one half court offense defense once you want you exclude. That blowout is totally fine and inform as you'd expect with kawai on the floor a hundred and eighteen points per one hundred possessions..

"With jj radic. And i think he's really coming into his. I think he's reaching other level of of being a young man in the sleek and so i'm looking for to that game and then we have a healthy zion and we really haven't had a great lebron's game yet and I i think that'd be a fun to watch friday night. That's great tune in lake. Lankans all right mr mcmenamin. Thank you as always for your time. I'm sure we will reconvene to talk about this little engine that could that you cover out in la Be safe best your family. That's already to all right. Let's bring in friend of the program. One of the very best in the world at what he does talk about the other two teams who were allegedly in the inner circle of contenders last season and fancy themselves in that same inner circle this season. The bucks and the clippers. Mr kevin pelton. How are you. i'm doing well. Thanks for having me. Are you excited about the seattle crack. And i am not nearly as excited. That would be win or if the seattle sonics comeback. But we're we're getting close. We're in the year of the cracking now. So that's that's something. I just can't take it seriously. I'm sorry it's called the cracking. i can't take it seriously i have. I have one of my best friends from college. Lives in seattle. He's trying to get me into the crack. And it's i just can't i'm sorry. The name has grown on me. I got a crack in hoity. I'm in all right. i'll give it a shot. I'll give it a shot anyway. So i just had dave mcmenamin not on to talk about the lakers. Because i think the lakers are sort of just not going under the radar but serve going along there and burying business. We all know what the lakers are. They're interesting but we don't talk about the bucks in the clippers. It was your idea to actually do a bucks clippers. Follow up to this. Because as i said those are the two teams that i think those were the three favorites last year and i think we all picked the clippers to win the title. I believe you pick the clippers to win the title. We all view teams relatively equal in the end. Two of them flamed out in horrible fashion and one of them soldiered on to win the championship. Rather dominant fashion. And so. I do think we're almost ten games in now. You're right that this is an interesting time to sort okay. The bucks made one gigantic change and then a bunch of minor changes to their bench the clippers to rotation big men out one very good rotation big man in our starting center serge ibaka. Luke kennard on the bench so some big issue changes on both teams Start with let's start with the bucks Number one in offense by a mile number thirteen in defense number one in net rating with an absolutely preposterous plus thirteen points per one hundred possessions scoring margin. Jrue holiday is the big ticket. New addition what strikes. You about the bucks. Is this team better. Same worse too early to tell. What's interesting mr pelton. I think too early to tell and you know what's interesting. So when i posed this question to you was number one. These teams belong in the same tears. The laker lakers. Because i think we have a disagreement on one of the two of them and the number two can they do anything in the regular season to prove that they belong in the same. Here's the lakers. Or is it just. You're going to have to prove it in the playoffs. And i think milwaukee might not be able to prove much to us in the regular season because of the fact that they've they've been so dominant in the regular season. This is nothing new for them. The way they're doing it is a little different in terms of they've just been making all of the three pointers far. They've made it's crazy. I looked at individuals. Because i knew david chen joe is over fifty percent and i was like me. See who else is really. I mean you watch the games you get a sense. They're all going. In middleton fifty four percent contin for content and fifty augustine and forbes are in the mid forties. It's like what's going on. Drew brook lopez. Yeah i mean. They've made eleven more three pointers through their first eight games than any team in nba. History breaking the record that they previously shared last year with houston so but at a much higher percentage that that was more a product volume which is really what it's been for the bucks in the past eight games at three point. Shooting is not enough to change our opinion about that but if there is a hope for the bucks why they are going to be in the better in the playoffs this year. I think it's the fact that eric bledsoe non shooting was such a problem in the past and the diva gentle. If you can take a step forward and then you're putting four guys you at least have to respect out there around honest. Yeah it's it's such a cop out. I think and i'm not saying you because i do the same thing to just be like. Well we have to wait and see on the bucks. The bucks or the bucks are out of the contender circle. Until until they're it's it's until they win the championship where it's like you so you win either way right you win when you're skeptical and the regular season and you win again. When they win the championship. You're right all along. I do think it behooves us behooves to watch this team. And not. just say we'll wait and see but are there signs that this team will do better in the playoffs than their predecessors in you just nailed the first one which they're not going to shoot like you know lola bunny in space. Jam bunnies good in space jam right. She good hershey bad. I don't remember the time. I think she's pretty good. I mean they don't have a lot of players on the team. It's unclear to me how they won. Most of their players are really really bad It just doesn't matter space jams bad. That's my heartaches bachchan's bad space jam to lebron. This is important since big. Part of your legacy. This is third paragraph of your career legacy space. Jam don't blow it. I don't even know what the hell other not gonna shoot this way. Yes i said the minute they got holiday. You and i've talked about it. I think i now. I now trust three-fifths of their closing line-up whereas it was two fifths a year ago and by that i mean who's not gonna hurt the spacing on offense and who can stay on the floor defensively so forbes augustine cool del come in in the second quarter and when you some minutes here. They're in the playoffs when it's when it's go time day just against some teams at least it's going to be hard to have them on the floor defensively. That's why vicenzo to me.

"Positive. Adulation for what you're doing out there in players can tap into that. It's extra valuable to have someone like In your organization on your roster on your bench as i. i don't know if you've been going to games yet this year but the That was in the bubble and the bubble. You're in arenas that sit. Forty five hundred people or something like that. Maximum capacity and they were surrounded by these massive video screens and there was a concentration of the energy onto the court. It kind of made more sense Game staple center this season. It's cavernous it's massive. It's echoey it's empty and it you don't at least to me and i've texted with several people on the lakers staff as games are going on. And they've agreed with my premise. That this doesn't feel like the same concentration of energy It's still an adjustment period going on to make this feel as legitimate as nba basketball. Feel so as an adjustment period is happening to have a guy like mantras harrell. Who doesn't know any other mode but eleven on a scale of ten think really only makes them more valuable to the team. Well look. I want to preface this by saying i were beyond first world problems. Okay just be beyond it but you talk to people at every strategy of a team people in the traveling party. It's just going to be a slog like there's just nobody that's excited to play the season that will change when the playoffs come for if the playoffs come for a variety of different reasons that could change right but one of them is the obvious where the stakes get much much bigger and when the stakes get bigger. We saw the bubble guys play hard. Best looks beautiful all that everyone is just sort of like. We've all agreed to play. We just gotta get through the season. I mean the spurs were just in la for four days. All you can do is sit in your hotel room. Let's and again. These are nice hotels first of all problems. The food's great nobody's crying. Nobody's up to say compared to what they are used to. It's just kind of slog and you talked to everyone in the league at. It's just we just gotta get through this season. Everyone agrees it's gonna go by fast. We're going to blink and the playoffs are going to get here. It's just gonna go really facile hope and pray that next year is normal which is not a guarantee but who knows. We'll see it's just it's just going to be the and as you said there's no juice two games. The games are in. Just they are. They are we. It's manifested itself by a preponderance of blow outs that we've seen in the again. I'm not trying to say that there aren't moments where you can still convince yourself that you are watching a pure distilled nba product and all the guys are into it. And there's physical prowess and mental acuity on display in harmony. And while that's what we love about the nba. but there are definitely moments and stretches. Were i. I wonder if there's any correlation between bradley beal and steph curry and even damon the bubble oskar at sixty. Isn't there something to that. Where i mean i know guys are more talented and more accustomed to shooting three pointers in. All those guys are are some of the best marksmen. We've seen in this game but I think the absence of the pressure and the poll of having the expectation of twenty thousand people in the building viewing you and watching you and judging you and cheering you. That absence can create situations. Where were guys go off like it was a practice and that's cool at school but it's it's not really what the nba has been built on. I two basketball will be great when the basketball needs to be great. Let's just wrap with a couple more lakers things. A lebron said effort. Got to give you this season. Twenty nine picks per one hundred possessions when he's the pick and roll ball handler last season. Thirty seven so again the volume of everything. He's doing his down the last thing on mark and how he's changed the team. The upside for the lakers of teams putting their centers on a and putting little guys or whoever mark just hiding people on mark the minute. You put your center on eighty. And i don't care if it's lamarcus aldridge. Who used to be a four or whatever. I don't care if it's a fast center if it's a center and he's on. Anthony davis and the lakers have spacing on the floor. They can just go right into the lebron. Ad pick and roll over and over and over again because if there's a center on ad suddenly you can't switch that play anymore. If it's a four eighty a lot of teams are built to switch that play now the matchup so they can still switch it but if there is a center on ad because you're that scared of his postgame the lakers when it counts will just say okay. We're putting our two best players. And they did a little bit tiny bit in the third quarter last night and got a lot of good shots and then whatever the game away. They're just going to go to that. Play over and over and over again. And so i just i still think. This team is the champion of favorite until proven. Otherwise i think all the moves they made in the off season have made them different but ultimately at least as good if not better. nothing. I've seen has changed that the last question i'll ask you. Mr mcmanamon is just gimme the next five games. Is there a. Is there something you have your eye on. There's something you're curious about whether it's the rotation a particular player a lineup is there something. Just sorta of like fixated on one. I wanna see them back as full strength. So caruso returned from a five game absence because the contact tracing he was effective in the spurs game but the minutes. He was playing the lakers. Were already trying to climb back from behind. And so he's back but contain pope as last three games with an ankle. I wanna see them getting back to that. Starting lineup that you mentioned that has such a wild plus minus with that five man group get them back on the court slot coups back into his role off the bench because if they can get him as another kind of counted on automatic consistent guy they're gonna get towards that next year they can be at 'cause they right now it is. It's lebron in a d. As the most consistent lakers schreuder has pretty much done that this year and give them a lot of credit for that because to go from role player to consistent knocking on the door of stardom type of guy. That's what you have to do. Tresors kinda of slotted below there. Then you have the wild destinations of kyle kuzma which has really been the story of the good band neighborhood. There there should be an l. A band calls himself the wild vacillations of kyle kuzma cool. You know crews would get into it. He'd go to concerts. It would be it would be a whole thing. i think. That's that's not a terrible idea. I think we've something on this podcast today. Exactly made adequate figured out the best way to us markets but we have found a another marketing opportunity for kyle kuzma and that's what the guy needs quite. Frankly so he's been undercover through his. Nba career. I don't know enough about him. Don't know who dates nobody wears. I don't dates dating someone famous. You really don't know is it. A jenner or a kardashian. Nah it's a model supermodel. Okay coups. what's what's the young lady's name winnie harlow I've witnessed here acquaintance but You know they are very active in sharing photos on social media. She was the guest of his down the bubble so look look at the things on learning good for twos but i. That's one thing and then honestly. I'm looking forward to next week. When the pelicans come to town is it's it's a fun game already because you have the factor be you know josh hart ingram and lonzo aren't i don't know if they're ever going to be totally comfortable with what happened in that trade even though it may be the best thing that ever happened. Certainly for brent anger so i interviewed. Bi a couple of a couple of times in the last month for a piece of i'm going to do and i asked him in the first interview. We did it over zoom. 'cause i wanna do it. Face to face at said was a weird watching. The lakers win the championship and he's kind of looked at. I can't remember smirk during grin. But it was very clear he was like not taking the bait on our kennedy and that he gave and then he gave a very nice. We're in our team. You know to save all trying to win a championship love la. I'm look forward to that piece..

"Actually really hasn't happened. But you can tell. And i think this is a proxy for the lakers are not playing at full throttle and will not be for a long time. You can tell. Lebron is is justifiably sort of seeing a little bit at least of the creative burden and has been really consistent. And i think that's part of the reason why you've seen lebron be willing to cede some control there because it's not like a fly by night type of performance has been the third best laker on this team this year and considering the contract that they put on the plate of cow kouzmin considering some of the accomplishments of the other guys that were on the championship team last year. At no small feat considering. They added the six man of the year mantra sorrow in with with that. There's been some control but there is also the expectation. I think that they're going to need that to be continued from That out so interesting. That if davis art has a comfort level with them where the point that he said they have gone home after games and both done their film study from their respective domiciles while texting. About what they're seeing so there's a level of trust being built but at the same time davis calls him out by name in a press conference for not being up to speed with the defense yet and to me. That means that he is fully integrating into what they're about and and that's a great thing and this is what shrews one. He is a starter on championship. Level team And the lakers certainly wanna keep him for the haul and have him be you know as a twenty seven year. Old point guard playing l. a. into his thirties. I thought that was great trade. I've said it a bunch of times. Like i know shooters a flawed player. That next contract might raise some eyebrows when it happens But you just wouldn't. You're a championship team with no cap flexibility. You just don't get chances to acquire pretty good twenty six twenty seven year old players who have a lot of time left in their prime. Who fit what you need on your team. You just don't get those. And if the lakers could go out and get it. Some people might raise their eyebrows at the price of the contract. I thought it was a good trade. I said that from the beginning Hero is the interesting one to me because the a fit i get like yet. There will be nice when stretchy teams will test mark a little bit. I think the lakers are fine with that though. Like mark come out on the pick and roll and they can. They have part of the reason they date. It was the same thing happened in. Houston if you have to send mark soul the three point. Line to smother a damian lillard pick and roll. Yeah that's not as comfort zone but when you have a d. and lebron behind that play all that size and athleticism. You don't really. You're not that worried about portland. Or whoever coming in on a four on three like you can rotate and cover for that herald. Is the one that. I'm just very curious to see how that fit evolves he. Lebron and davis have only played forty minutes ago. The whole the whole season. It's very clear that frank vogel for whatever reason and i was very interested to see how often those three would play together because it doesn't strike me as the cleanest possible way to use the lakers roster and they have barely play together and eighty and herald play together. A lot so that that fit is going to be fine. These amazing but herald looks to me like a really good. Just regular season innings. Eater come just go nuts rampage around yell. Scream get offense rebound tip dunks push up your little floater. That goes in some of the time. And i liked president. He's good player when the playoffs come. I'm curious how often the lakers go from like they have gonzales center. They have at center or heroin davis everyone to call the center and then the ultimate reason why. I'm just not ever going to be concerned about. The lakers is when they go to. Anthony davis at center with lebron in three perimeter players. There's just no one has found an answer to that. And that includes this season there. Plus twenty five and thirty one of those minutes with lebron ad and no center and they have plenty of perimeter depth especially if t h t is going to be a legit part of their rotation they have plenty of the play all sorts of variants of those lineups. But here'a harrelson interesting fit. And i am very curious to see how that evolves he said. Something really interesting. When the lakers were finishing off their four game road trip. Where the the lakers allow a freedom on offense that he hadn't been afforded his career. And maybe that means he is better than he was at earlier stages career in houston and with the clippers but we seen him spot up and go into his jab series and take up jump shots from eighteen feet. We seem to catch the ball out on the the high post and put it on the floor and go into a spin. Move and finished. He's got a good spin move. He's got fast spin move and him in a d. Were you mentioned. His floater. d were debating that earlier this season about who has the best florida for big man in the league and is it a trend so well. Oh well we'll in the league. Perhaps i may misquoted. Perhaps on the team. I hope it's not the way described. It was the best floater for a big man. I'll tell you the answer that question. Yoga big boy down in denver. That's the answer. They can just look at look over there. You'll see the guy with the best floater. Anyway go ahead but all those parts of the are not necessarily the junkyard. Dog the hit the office of glass. The you don't necessarily need even call a play for him to have him involved. And i think if you think about the same as making about lebron right. He's eighteen years into this thing and you want to give him new toys to play with on the court. Trez been that guy in the box of energy and defense and hustle take charges and fish rather glass and have long arms and get deflections and and things of that nature for so long. You give us a little bit more leash. You're probably gonna get a bigger by an least early on that. I think what. You're seeing from that. When i know that things went a little sour with the clippers last year and maybe a lesser with the clippers but talk to people there over the years tresses spirit. And you can it get. That spirit manifests itself in many different forms but even just the form that is trash talking other the other teams players taunting them yelling and screaming. There's a certain effective. It's game thirty two. i just don't really feel it. And then trez comes in and starts rattling the rim gets teed up for hanging on the rim. His yelling at people and the rest of the team is kind of like all right. This is kind of fun. I'm getting a little energy off of this guy. I think that's the thing. That's a real thing and i don't wanna be like over the top about this point but i totally agree with you and we went need our our guy kevin pelton to figure out like a metric for this but without nineteen thousand five hundred screaming fans that will give the adrenaline boosts in wave.

Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence

"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.

Summoning Bloody Mary

"The Encyclopedia of Urban Legend. So there is such. An Encyclopedia describes a formula for summoning the spirit of bloody Mary. Perhaps you heard of this myth. Our team of urban legend riders set out to determine once and for all if the legend of calling up bloody. Mary was fat or fiction. The process for bringing forth the spirit goes something like this. Teenage girl stands in a dark room with a large mirror only illuminated by candles. She holds she chance. I believe in Bloody Mary Thirteen Times or until the spirit makes its presence known. Now remember my Wednesday gas shower. Bauer deals with spirits and talking with spirits from the beyond the veil. And I'd be curious and I will be asking her about this myth or mystery or team found that most of the rituals were performed in a bathroom. The story of a nineteen eighty-eight CO edited a small Washington State. College put the Urban Legend Riders. So the correct state one graduate explained how her roommate tried out the ritual for fun and ran screaming from the dorm bathroom. Shaking and Pale genuinely terrified. Her clenched fingers covered in blood. Our intrepid riders were intrigued by the story but wanted something more recent the day before they were to return tonight. I will sound studio with a finished script. Team Leader Ryland. Anderson was contacted. Apparently News of an investigative writing team in search of supernatural travels fast among small towns in the Washington State village of Aurora population. Six hundred fifty five. A young team was willing to tell her story. Ashley Pelton no longer resident having moved with the family. Her father was transferred to. Idaho was back in the village visiting friends. It was during a sleepover with six other teens. Who took the dare and stepped into the bathroom lights out with only a candle. Ashley said she wasn't sure of the incantation so recited I believe in Mary. Thirteen Times with ease. Recitation turned to circle when she came around to face the mirror for the last time the face of a young girl wearing a bonnet was sausage curls eyes darting from side to side as if walking for something or someone nearly filled the mirror the head shoulders appear to be bobbing up and down in an amber liquid. The event took place just before family left the area. The previous summer and the group had sworn each other to silence. Ashley's parents knew nothing of the event but her father Roger Pelton was an amateur historian and explained the history of Aurora village that might account for the image in the mirror bobbing internet or liquid. He told how the small Washington State village of Aurora started out as a colony led by Prussian born Taylor William Keel. Who moved with his wife to the United States in the eighteen thirties by eighteen forty four? He established the BETHEL colony in Missouri by eighteen. Fifty five. He decided to set up a second. Call it in Washington territory but four days before they set out his daughter. Mary died malaria not wanting to leave her behind. Put her in a lead lined coffin filled with whiskey to preserve the body. Could Ashley have summoned the spirit of Mary Keel? Who just perhaps was looking for her

Is Peloton a Fitness Fad or a Tech Company?

WSJ Tech News Briefing

Is Peloton a Fitness Fad or a Tech Company?

"On this show. We clearly talk a lot about tech companies. There's some some obvious ones apple Microsoft alway and then they're all the startups that have changed our lives in recent years. Like the ridesharing APPS UBER and lift or food delivery companies like post mates and seamless and sometimes we take a step back and think wait. Is that Really Tech Company. We were talking about that with columnist. John on stole the other day and our episode about the luggage company away. And it's something. He's been thinking about lately especially connected to the fitness industry specifically the stationary bike company. Pelton so John's back to continue the conversation with us today. Hey John thanks for joining us. The driven me. I'm not on my Peleton. I just got off. So let's go. Let's go well. We could have been on the phone with you on your pilot and that would have made it so much more exciting but you would it. It would've been very embarrassing. I I'm I'm a low performer. On the Peleton leaderboard okay. So let's back up a little bit. POYTON has been in a battle L. with some of its competitors it sued both flywheel sports and echelon fitness in the last couple of years. What's at stake here? What exactly are they fighting over there? Fighting over depending on which company we're talking about that they're fighting they're fighting over technology patents intellectual property that both sides accused each other her of borrowing stealing lifting copying off their neighbors sort of test scores. So this goes back several years to the beginning of a movement called connected fitness. Basically take a smart tablet like a touchscreen tablet you hook it to your stationary bike and you begin begin. Pipe lining in a live or archived session with a high level instructor. What makes it? Unique is the leader board that is available available with the instructor showing you all the people that are in the class. Not just in the class proper in the physical class all over the world and these numbers can balloon to hundreds the thousands of people and it doesn't matter when you're taking the class it's dynamic in a way that it makes you feel like you're taking the class in real time competing with all these people in real time even if it's a week or a month take the classes taking place. So what is what are they fighting over there fighting over the intellectual property in this idea of the leaderboard. Yeah I mean Peleton a saying we came up with this dynamic with they call time sink leaderboard if you think about watching an Olympic sport like swimming and you watch Michael Michael Phelps. You know trying to break another record. There will be an could be as if he's competing against the old record holder from nineteen eighty-four. Whomever that swimmer was that set the record before you would see Phelps trying to beat that in real time very similar technology that Peleton says it spent a lot of time and money and engineering talent Jalan trying to develop and so fly will if I and the national on second came out with bikes dead operated very similar to its technology did Move to protect those patents not immediately but after those products come onto the market so this is basically an intellectual property dispute in in the fitness world. How strange is that for? This industry are how how common is that. For this industry I think the intellectual property if we take it out of the tech Rome Just the idea that somebody has come up with. A nifty idea in fitness is very common for someone to want to protect that. Whether it's Typo or Zimba Numba or Richard Simmons techniques or the Hula Hoop. I mean there's been decades if not a century of trying to patent ideas that people may have been doing this for for decades or centuries that it's just somebody came up with a better name for it. Those are hard to actually prosecute because the defendants often say this is a very ambiguous idea. This idea of using this specific routine to crunch avs is not novel or unique. I can do it too in. Don't sue me and so they don't often hold up in a court of law. What's unique about Peleton's John's argument here is that they're going into the world of algorithms in data not like sit ups and push ups when you start talking about specific technology that power software anywhere? There is a much more rich and robust precedent of companies being able to protect that sort of Ip and get money have settlements or even cease and desist on the other end. Underline the thing. That's so interesting here. Is that politics is I mean. Obviously lots of fitness makers you named the number of devices making devices is for fitness is also not a new thing but they still call themselves fitness companies. The air really talking about themselves as Tech Company so I WANNA kind of get back to that first conversation that we were having about. What does it take to be attacked company? And why is it important that a ride sharing APP or Salads Delivery Service or luggage company is calling themselves attack company. Why is that so common now and why is it so important? I think I think there's a couple of things if you unpack that idea. So the technology enables better life and it may enable enables better usage so if I'm a typical stationary bike rider later. I'm going to be bored to death after an hour. It's not going to happen for me with my short attention span so I have to turn on television and listen to music and even that can get old and I'd be like I'm just GonNa go outside and go on regular your bike or do something else. So there's the boredom factor there's also the lack of community factor in fitness particularly Solar Solo Sports. That make them rather dull and so so when you can bring technology like Says it has into the equation that actually makes people addicted to the type of even if it pseudo community that exists all over the world at the same time competing against each other. Instructors do it through the Internet software data algorithms and have a living testament in real time to how well you're doing you begin to talk about having a solution that people would see as technology enabled and not just fashion you know belts and and nuts and bolts. Why that's important is it could be the thing that enables breakneck growth? Not just fitness industry type of growth but tech company. Any sort of growth. We're talking double digits. Year over year expansive massive growth at propels a company like to the billions of dollars of revenue range. That is very atypical for a single fitness company. The place where I work out lifetime fitness taken like quarter-century to get to a billion dollars in revenue Peleton's tons track has been a lot faster. So you've got that you've also got the ability to charge more and ask investors to value you hire when those metrics bricks are actually working out so subscriber growth has been very robust at collegehype. Meeting People Shell Out Thirty Bucks Forty Bucks a month for Peleton's subscription way more than spotify defy or Netflix or Amazon prime to have access to the content and the real real time competitions and putting go back to investors and say look. This group is what they recall sticky. They're going to keep coming back. It's a endless source of revenue for us. We're not just selling a bike. Were selling a service and that really is often what we think of when we talk about it enabled the technical solution and so then investors start to say well okay. The typical fitness company gets this kind of multiple but Peleton's worth eight and a half billion dollars because we see them as a tech company upholding. Narrative is really important. Yeah and I mean we've seen other companies kind of fall from grace very publicly. We talked what about we work. They're valued at one billion but they were supposedly worth forty seven billion until investors basically realized yet. There's not as much tack here as just like take a landlord. Is there a danger in that kind of Thinking that kind of valuation we're finding out the pitfalls and the benefits fits in real time so we were a great example going from the forties of billions of dollars evaluation. To eight billion. Almost overnight is dramatic and intense but a company like uber or or lift which have filed appeals in the last year or so have really struggled to get over the initial evaluation and you don't invest in a company just for it to remain stagnant. You might as well by a bond if you just want a fixed income. You know that doesn't deliver much growth. The IPO Uber was supposed to be the sort of thing that skyrocketed so yeah there's companies that position themselves as tech companies and then investors start to figure out or asking scratch their head. Is this company really company. I think Peleton's valuation is much more modest that said they have struggled to get over the initial IPO price and they've shown some weakness in the months since they filed nothing to to do with the tech but more to do with the brand and so a lot of people would argue Peleton's a great marketing and brand company. But when they make a mistake like putting on an ad that a lot of people see a sexist Texas you see the the share price gets hit pretty hard and maybe it shows that this company just has a really strong brand that means to protect in that technology. Now on the the other side of the foot you've got tesla which for years has been talking about being tech company and has been valued very often like a car company and all of a sudden as they start to prove out the main player in the electric vehicle technology sector. There were eighty ninety one hundred billion dollars while lead the other guys in the dust. What kind of impact can this? The expanded definition of Tech Company have on an industry. We we've just been talking about the fitness industry. We're seeing it. We've seen it play out in some others. What kind of what kind of impact does it have? Well I think you can get everybody rushing to prove that they're also a tech company. You look at some of the alleged copycats in Peleton's wake it's not just. The companies is that they're suing. It's Nordic track it's it's bowflex it's makers of rowers and elliptical machines. treadmills all in all trying to tell the consumer or now that they too are tech companies. They may not even be striving to go public but they they do have investors and they do have employees and they do have customers that I'll also need to believe believe. Hey I don't want to just by the run on the treadmill for a few hundred bucks if I'm in the market I'll spend more if I can get more and so a lot of the conventional players begin acting like tech companies binny's whether that succeeds or not is a sector-by-sector it's very hard for a Marriott. For instance to convince people that their AIRBNB and other company see that's about to go public and has convinced everybody because of the efficacy in the in the ease of use of its APP. People say this is Tech Company. Even though it's a hospitality company it also also creates this kind of momentum and energy on the positive side can create momentum and energy where you get new entrance all the time so we may see better solutions to all kinds of exercise issues or even a lowering of the cost of entry. Peleton cost twenty five hundred bucks. I mean this is a first first world like premium one percent type of product. This is not for the masses. But maybe you'll start to see more companies crowd in as the cost of the technology comes down down as the amount of people wanting it so that the scale rises you begin to see better. Solutions Typically come in the market not always the case but sometimes the case that an industry can get better when they started thinking a bit more about the how technology data could make them better. It's a fascinating conversation. I'm sure we're going to keep having it. John Still thank you so much true joining us and that was your tech news briefing. I'm Correo come from the Wall Street Journal in New York. Thanks for listening.

EAA CEO Jack J. Pelton Looks Back at 2019

"Let's start with Something Nice and easy and measurable like Like membership membership has grown. You know we've had phenomenal growth. Actually when you look at it over the last last five years and membership and we are now in a place where memberships When you look at all types of memberships from families to students to everybody else so well over over two hundred forty thousand members which we haven't seen that number before so this is a great great story that I think is all about the value that DA is bringing bringing to the aviation community and people are voting with their membership cards by being a part of our members when we send out survey work? Don't do indicate that the publication is one one of the number one reasons that they belong to. And you think about how it's evolved how it's improved. You know the the pictures of the quality of the diversity of articles they the value. It's forty bucks. I mean that you can't beat that for a subscription I think a lot of other subscriptions that are out there that are far more expensive than that without nearly the content so so bravo boys. Thanks for doing a great job on it. Well we hear from a lot of people who opened it up read your column and then just set the magazine aside for a while too so it's more of a reflection house. How's what that's all about Let's hop from publications as as much as I would like to sit here and have our praises Sung a little more two programs Yeah obviously known for so many programs that have done so much good for the general aviation community. A new one on the season this year was the Ray Aviation Scholarship program. which if you haven't heard I don't know how you haven't heard it's been everywhere but providing more than one hundred flight training scholarships through the Chapter Network? What are your thoughts on this program and why it has been so successful in your one? I all since we're reflecting on two thousand nineteen this probably has been the most significant new program that has occurred in a long time but he a very. I'm very proud of it. And it has a An impact that's far reaching a very comprehensive is GonNa make the difference in kids lies. I the Ray Foundation stepped up Provided the funding for us to to do something different. The challenge was in flight training today. It's about an eighty percent dropout rate. Call all at sixty seventy eighty but eighties bout what it is. They said they believed in US through our chapter network if we picked people who are engaged in the chapters young people which means they were already part of the chapter and involved in the chapter was willing to mentor them through the flight training process that we could reverse that trend and create eighty percents success rate and we gladly took that on because we believe strongly that that is one of the ingredients that makes flight training more successful is having that mentorship and somebody. That's is that helping you along the journey To date we've had a significant number of people Solo we had a significant number of people actually get their private pilot's license license and we are actually well above eighty percent on those who have completed an eighty percent of the people who have entered the program so that may be eighty percent of those who have proceeded to the point of getting a check right of passed it. The there has been no. I think there's been one or two dropouts but that was because of circumstances. Either moving or airplane not available but the data early on is really convincing in the foundation believes in it. They're going to continue you too funded It's a huge program for us in a huge program for getting us through the through the pipes license. Well we've had race collars that have. It's not only pass their check rides but they themselves are starting to fly Young Eagles and you think about that in the space of a year you know going from essentially somebody who would be a young eagle to flying a young eagles with the with the support of these funds that that the foundation entrust us with and they're they're supporting us even more strongly in twenty twenty s and that they are They continue to increase the amount of money. That's being made available for these scholarships which is really encouraging You know we can continue to keep delivering the numbers but but your point also how I think it shows the importance of the chapter network in the value that it brings to help someone get immersed in aviation ride and it's it's been so exciting for us is to. Is We publish stories on our blog and through your hotline newsletter and stuff every week We just had a meeting recordings had a meeting yesterday and said had you know we've got to spread spread out The great race caller news that we get because we're getting so many Weekday weekend sound sort of silly but you know here's another one that's a solo. There's there's no impassive private check right and we're going to celebrate every single one of them but we need to make sure that they get that they get their attention. Deserves a great problem to have your here but but I think it's. It's a fascinating that everybody searched for. How do you how do you create more success in the flight training as far as completion? And I think we're onto something here again through the chapter network. Yeah and then I mean just speaking of of chapters. What are you hearing from chapter leaders? You have conversations with all sorts of air throughout the year about the strength of aviation in local communities. You know it's been hit or miss. I mean I think with a good economy. We're seeing as a whole L.. Recreationally Aviation is back to being stronger than it was say back to the two thousand eleven timeframe. So we're seeing that uptick. The you know the old saying goes is a hi tide rises all the whole ship. So we're seeing some of that I think that at the local community level. We still have a lot of groundwork to do to make sure that the community's unity's Bhai into understanding the importance of an airport in sports of what the chapters do there and helping develop young people How it impacts the con- The economy economy in the local area from a positive standpoint so this year in twenty twenty where I know? We're going to talk about twenty eight thousand but we're going to start working harder out of the chapter office to have more of an outreach outreach to help the chapters work at the local level with the airports to understand that so that we don't cause airports to go away and against Berta speaking of of chapters outreach and their importance to all this you know. We've got a touch on young eagles and look at At us we're we're somewhere Either just just added very quickly approaching two point. Two million kids which is just absolutely absolutely staggering Would you look back at the foundation of that program It back in the early nineties and that goal to reach a million kids by two thousand three three one hundredth anniversary of the Wright brothers powered flight. A lot of people swore. It couldn't be done yet. It has now become Something something that is is only it has done is become very foundational tar mission as to how we get young people into aviation and each year we continue to add another sixty. Seventy thousand young n people were taking those first flights very very important element of what we do at the chapter level in two thousand nineteen. We really step back and said okay. We've flown to point to We have wonderful value for them. In order to get the sport he's learned to fly course with it The logbook and in association with a chapter after but we keep asking. The question is to how do we continue to keep young. People engage between eight and seventeen when you can actually start learning into four sixteen. Bit Learning to formally fly by adding programmatic activities to to get young people engaged Twenty nineteen we. We launched the Virtual Virtual Flight Academy which is Microsoft flight simulator or prepare because the other software base That you can download as a member for free the the four or five lessons and then there's a up charged adolescence to it to give young people a chance to fly on their simulator at home. We created association with the AMA the modeling group to be able to do chapter build of an airplane and go out and work with an AMA chapter to learn to fly We've just done all sorts of things to try to keep that engagement of a young person up to that time where they can actually start beginning to do their flight training. And we're really going to double down on that and twenty twenty

"pelton" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership

"HQ is a wonderful option for any brands that are looking to influence their marketing. Looking to get the program off the ground Suzanne up today using the Lincoln are shown outs and use the code breakfast. It let me know you think like you said I guarantee it will pay for itself and I share cut. Excuse an amazing offer ends a good option for anybody. That's interested in influence or marketing. Now back to the show if the communication would have been you know open and the leadership would have listened to the warning signs that could have prevented invented. Thanks I I I know somebody personally that Recently left and organization and that organization is going to have have some challenges and a potential survival organization and they've been around for several several decades and it's a situation where some decisions that are being made at the higher levels There's concerned by the people that are actually doing you know the type of work going. They not sustainable be not Not being able to meet to those type of obligations that we say we're GonNa make and unfortunately when this individual voiced that opinion it was issue no shot down and they were basically delegated to doing different work and kind of isolated. You know it's your your classic bullying being such rates. That is an my gosh. I'm glad you bring that up because you know that's that's so true. Isolating people is a is a power over over move. It's a play and I think that it's based off of our unconscious. Prime mole desires like to to have power Whoever you know sets others up to be isolated first of all But also it it. Is it leads to the environment of disconnect distrust and then you know creating silos never they never bodes well for the organization overall because if people don't really have those first of all relationships they're not going to have the little conversations that occur That are just natural community building conversations. And they don't have to be profound found actually in conversational intelligence learn. There's there's three levels of conversations did you have you known that or did you hear about that. Three three levels. Yeah verbal physical that type of thing. Are we talking something different. It's about depth like you know what you're able to How deep you're able to connect with others through conversations and one's not better than the other depends on like well what's the intention you know? For Level Level one conversations is just about exchanging information so like for example You know if I'm texting you. I don't want to go into a deep conversation. I just need information right. It's like hey what time do you WanNa meet. Three o'clock great right so it it. It swims in the shallow L. O. N.. But it it serves a purpose but it doesn't really allow for those connections in the long run but there's nothing wrong with it just has purpose built level twos about exchanging information So to kind of position yourself in a way A. That says like hey I know I know something I I know something and I want to share this with you and so this is where people can get stuck in that power overplay. You know that that that game that people play where they're trying to be better than we. We have this addiction if you would to being right and so in conversations if you've ever been an Anna Anna conversation with someone who just has to one up you or I'm sure we've all been there. Where are someone just has to say? Have the last word or you feel like you know they're they. They're the smarter one or they know better and they're always trying to to position themselves so that you know that that they're the ones that You know they know better and a perfect example of this when it's done badly it when I was meeting a long time ago when I lived in Florida I was meeting a friend for dinner and she wanted wanted to introduce me to her new boyfriend at the time and so he came out with us and we were engaged in conversation. This is a long time ago and I was studying Natural Medicine and that's my background and healing and helping people transform naturally Was Kinda how I started my journey coaching. So during a conversation it came up about There was a some study that That the active ingredient in A common artificial sweetener converted to Formaldehyde at body temperature which is not good because formaldehyde embalm is an embalming fluid Ed and so it's not good for the nervous system. It's not good for your brain. So anyway he literally. I joke I joke. You're not here. He literally walked away from the table. Came back apparently what he did was he went into the other room. Got On the computer googled. It and then came came back and said you're wrong and I was like I'm sorry and he was like yeah. No that's that's that's a lie I was like I'm not sure he's it's like yeah I just looked it up. That's that's that's not true and so I was like Ha. That's actually a very bad way to build old friends and I almost said to him. You don't have many very many friends. Do you. Obviously not if you be confrontational that way. Just as a side note I drink my coffee and tea black so I don't use sweeteners so I should be okay with formaldehyde. Exactly not not not yet. That's Hopefully a long time down the road and even the cremation will probably the way to go. So what I I I'll I'll a left my Deal with that when that can sip. Exactly embalming for me then for you. So yeah that actually really does not lead to good connections and that so that's a negative level to 'cause there's positive to you can position yourself with information but not make the other person feel like make your superior to them are at least perceived and then the third level of conversation really goes into a whole new level and and this is about bringing the best out in each other. This is about co creating new possibilities new terrain in conversation by asking questions that we don't assume to have answers to so there you haven't yeah it's that's a great example of of off of all the levels and it's funny. How often we we cross pollinate is a good way to put it in a different mediums? Were text message. You know should be you know quick to the point of view I do. How's it going good in you know if it's more more than a couple sentences these these smartphones are originally phones in call people? I know this is probably Elliot's shock. I probably should have put a spoiler alert. There there there is a phone icon nightmare in. You can actually call it all on the phone and talk with awesome. It's I know it's it's weird. It's right answer with like a question like hello exactly exactly. It's like what is this thing doing. It's like what is this this APP. This is very strange. What is this thing? Give weight right it reach out. Make these connections make the effort. So if you're going to tell somebody you know one thing that you would recommend them to do who in order to really get their conversations to a better place than they are right now both work home life and in just in general you know what would that be if it's more than one that's fine but I'm just curious the one key thing that you see a lot of people struggle with. Yeah I think that but The one thing I'll say is is trust in that's actually building trust and that's an an acronym so trust stands for or be transparent relationship over task share success be willing to talk about your. You're shared success. What success means kind of not analogy of of of Wondering what what's the what does success look like to. You have understanding. I guess I just put the you know in terms of then I just ruined the order so you goes before us but you got it so understanding having understanding is really not about blue like understanding can be a heart to heart conversation that says okay I feel you. I might not agree with you but I feel you in right there. Right there is is the breakthrough and then the final team on in the trust. Wattle is testing your assumptions. Because look you you. We all have assumptions where meaning meaning makers right and we all assume to know the meaning that other people's words have Or actions have but unless you ask those questions and tell people your truth by saying you know this is how I feel. Is that what you meant by it. You're never really going to be able to get into the reality city of somebody else So it's hard to understand someone if you don't know what their reality is so that's it the trust model build trust through transparency relationships understanding sharing your success in telling the truth so incredible list. I think if people just followed that this world would be dramatically. Just that just by to see how. It's not a soft skill. It's an essential essential is an essential skill is essential as oxygen for us. And I think too often we we push it aside and it it's showing. It's showing them. A relationships are homes workplaces everywhere we turn and look it's it's showing the impact impact And those that can you know follow those those guidelines and and really get communication back to where it needs to be. I think will make a huge huge difference and and everything that we do and I think it's the key to pivoting if you want to adapt to a world of rapid change we need to be in Sin Arche which is the opposite of anarchy. We need to come together. Work together creating an environment government that supports that absolutely absolutely couldn't agree more so shadow working people find out more about you in the awesome stuff.

"Hum welcome back I have a very special guest with me today. Shawn Pelton tune how are you. I'm great happier here. Great to have a we met at the New Media Summit back in for twenty nineteen and a As I talk with everybody that is part of that ecosystem. It's an amazing amazing event in just have you know all these awesome people come to it. And and the connections that we make that long lasting Still Amazes me now. Wonderful that conference theme same here so to talk about some of the great things that you're doing a in one of the things that we talked about in the pre show notes is Just conversational intelligence. Now when people hear that go get smarter conversations and NIA that's part of it but WE'LL WANNA talk about it from the framework of our day to day. Lives in in our our workforce in jobs and things like that so tell us a little bit about how about that in some of the things that you're discovering sure. Well thanks for the opportunity and I appreciate the chance to be able to share this. In which is I believe a new discovery right. It's a new type of intelligence and many people are familiar with. IQ obviously obviously cue which is emotional intelligence the less known but some are aware of s q spiritual intelligence but in truth. None of those things really Make the impact like conversational. Intelligence can make Conversational intelligence was actually the a work of the late Judith. E glacier who was my teacher my adviser and she she was an organizational anthropologist who was able to help great leaders build trust and get extraordinary results Through this skill because she realized how conversations shape the culture and She she talked about about how words create our worlds and they have the power to move from that position of being dominant which is power over others to have in power with which Brits Bridges Gaps in bridging those gaps. I think is something that we're seeing more and more prevalent in in the workplaces across the globe. `specially in North America where we're seeing and just amazing turnover of staff. People aren't staying in organizations for very long. The engagement is next to the nothing The the communication is broken at best. If at all and I in people are trying trying to find a light bet with what they do in their profession where they work and one of the challenges in this has obvious ripple effect because because people take work home whether they're constantly connected because of their smartphones or just the the stress in the feeling pulling like they're not really connected at work you know that carries through and conversations at home.

Looking to get the program off the ground Suzanne up today using the Lincoln are shown outs and use the code breakfast. It let me know you think like you said I guarantee it will pay for itself and I share cut. Excuse an amazing offer ends a good option for anybody. That's interested in influencer marketing. Now back to the show if the communication would have been you know open and the leadership would have listened to the warning signs that could have prevented invented. Thanks I I I know somebody personally that Recently left and organization and that organization is going to have have some challenges and a potential survival organization and they've been around for several several decades and it's a situation where some decisions that are being made at the higher levels There's concerned by the people that are actually doing you know the type of work going. They not sustainable be not Not being able to meet to those type of obligations that we say we're GonNa make and unfortunately when this individual voiced that opinion it was issue no shot down and they were basically delegated to doing different work and kind of isolated. You know it's your your classic bullying being such rates. That is an my gosh. I'm glad you bring that up because you know that's that's so true. Isolating people is a is a power over over move. It's a play and I think that it's based off of our unconscious. Prime mole desires like to to have power Whoever you know sets others up to be isolated first of all But also it it. Is it leads to the environment of disconnect distrust and then you know creating silos never they never bodes well for the organization overall because if people don't really have those first of all relationships they're not going to have the little conversations that occur That are just natural community building conversations. And they don't have to be profound found actually in conversational intelligence learn. There's there's three levels of conversations did you have you known that or did you hear about that. Three three levels. Yeah verbal physical that type of thing. Are we talking something different. It's about depth like you know what you're able to How deep you're able to connect with others through conversations and one's not better than the other depends on like well what's the intention you know? For Level Level one conversations is just about exchanging information so like for example You know if I'm texting you. I don't want to go into a deep conversation. I just need information right. It's like hey what time do you WanNa meet. Three o'clock great right so it it. It swims in the shallow L. O. N.. But it it serves a purpose but it doesn't really allow for those connections in the long run but there's nothing wrong with it just has purpose built level twos about exchanging information So to kind of position yourself in a way A. That says like hey I know I know something I I know something and I want to share this with you and so this is where people can get stuck in that power overplay. You know that that that game that people play where they're trying to be better than we. We have this addiction if you would to being right and so in conversations if you've ever been an Anna Anna conversation with someone who just has to one up you or I'm sure we've all been there. Where are someone just has to say? Have the last word or you feel like you know they're they. They're the smarter one or they know better and they're always trying to to position themselves so that you know that that they're the ones that You know they know better and a perfect example of this when it's done badly it when I was meeting a long time ago when I lived in Florida I was meeting a friend for dinner and she wanted wanted to introduce me to her new boyfriend at the time and so he came out with us and we were engaged in conversation. This is a long time ago and I was studying Natural Medicine and that's my background and healing and helping people transform naturally Was Kinda how I started my journey coaching. So during a conversation it came up about There was a some study that That the active ingredient in A common artificial sweetener converted to Formaldehyde at body temperature which is not good because formaldehyde embalm is an embalming fluid Ed and so it's not good for the nervous system. It's not good for your brain. So anyway he literally. I joke I joke. You're not here. He literally walked away from the table. Came back apparently what he did was he went into the other room. Got On the computer googled. It and then came came back and said you're wrong and I was like I'm sorry and he was like yeah. No that's that's that's a lie I was like I'm not sure he's it's like yeah I just looked it up. That's that's that's not true and so I was like Ha. That's actually a very bad way to build old friends and I almost said to him. You don't have many very many friends. Do you. Obviously not if you be confrontational that way. Just as a side note I drink my coffee and tea black so I don't use sweeteners so I should be okay with formaldehyde. Exactly not not not yet Hopefully a long time down the road and Even the cremation will probably the way to go. So what I I I'll I'll a left my I'll deal with that when that can sip. Exactly embalming for me then for you. So yeah that actually really does not lead to good connections and that so that's a negative level to 'cause there's positive to you can position yourself with information but not make the other person feel like take your superior to them are at least perceived and then the third level of conversation really goes into a whole new level and and this is about bringing the best out in each other. This is about co creating new possibilities new terrain in conversation by asking questions that we don't assume to have answers to so there you haven't yeah. It's that's a great example of of off of all the levels and it's funny. How often we we cross pollinate is a good way to put it in a different mediums? Were text message. You know should be you know quick to the point of view I do. How's it going good in you know if it's more more than a couple sentences these these smartphones are originally phones in call people? I know this is probably Elliot's shock. I probably should have put a spoiler alert. There there there is a phone icon nightmare in. You can actually call it all on the phone and talk with awesome. It's I know it's it's weird. It's right answer with like a question like hello exactly exactly. It's like what is this thing doing. It's like what is this this APP. This is very strange. What is this thing? Give weight right it reach out. Make these connections make the effort. So if you're going to tell somebody you know one thing that you would recommend them to do who in order to really get their conversations to a better place than they are right now both work home life and in just in general you know what would that be if it's more than one that's fine but I'm just curious the one key thing that you see a lot of people struggle with. Yeah I think that but The one thing I'll say is is trust in that's actually building trust and that's an an acronym so trust stands for or be transparent relationship over task share success be willing to talk about your. You're shared success. What success means kind of not analogy of of of Wondering what what's the what does success look like to. You have understanding. I guess I just put the you know in terms of then I just ruined the order so you goes before us but you got it so understanding having understanding is really not about blue like understanding can be a heart to heart conversation that says okay I feel you. I might not agree with you but I feel you in right there. Right there is is the breakthrough and then the final team on in the trust. Wattle is testing your assumptions. Because look you you. We all have assumptions where meaning meaning makers right and we all assume to know the meaning that other people's words have Or actions have but unless you ask those questions and tell people your truth by saying you know this is how I feel. Is that what you meant by it. You're never really going to be able to get into the reality city of somebody else So it's hard to understand someone if you don't know what their reality is so that's it the trust model build trust through transparency relationships understanding sharing your success in telling the truth so incredible list. I think if people just followed that this world would be dramatically. Just that just by to see how. It's not a soft skill. It's an essential essential is an essential skill is essential as oxygen for us. And I think too often we we push it aside and it it's showing. It's showing them. A relationships are homes workplaces everywhere we turn and look it's it's showing the impact impact And those that can you know follow those those guidelines and and really get communication back to where it needs to be. I think will make a huge huge difference and and everything that we do and I think it's the key to pivoting if you want to adapt to a world of rapid change we need to be in Sin Arche which is the opposite of anarchy. We need to come together. Work together creating an environment government that supports that absolutely absolutely couldn't agree more so shadow working people find out more about you in the awesome stuff. You're doing they can find me through just Going to my website Shawn Pelton Dot Com and googling me I guess I actually have of Some some things that I do share Con Constantly engaging community through social media media so if people are interested in staying connected they'll be able to find access to all of my touch points by going to my website.

"I am Bill Barnwell E._S._P._N.. I am joined by E._S._P._N.'s Kevin Pelton and we are agitating and annoying thunder fans today on the show by coming up with possible what if scenarios for how the thunder might have won championships that they just hadn't gotten in their own way or an into one of the most dominant teams in N._B._A.. History in the process so talk about the possibility of a James Harden non-trade we're trying to win have stayed with the thunder in the first scenario so let's throw that all away washout all out. Let's move forward and assume that are reality ends up with this alternate reality until game six of that series where the thunder lead three to one and the thunder traded James Harden he's gone. This is the actual thunder of that season. Stephen Adams <hes> is there they have who else was there. Baca waiters Andre Roberson the team that we saw that season is all on the court and and they actually do be thunder in game six scenario here in game sex with Klay Thompson doesn't break out forty-one points the thunder don't go three twenty three from three in that game and the thunder end up clinching the series and advanced to the N._B._A.. Finals where they're are going to play even though it's just Katie and Russell Westbrook it they don't have a Serge Ibaka Stephen Adams of the third best player on that team but it's them versus the Lebron calves that year <hes> a eighteen that <hes> from not mistaken <hes> pull that epic victory jury over the warriors and a seven-game series but do you think the thunder would have been asking if a matchup a better matchup perhaps versus eighteen that had limited minutes from Kevin love and we're really just Lebron Kyrie at their core. Yeah it's interesting so Cleveland would have had homecourt advantage in that series day. They wanted to more games that season in Oklahoma City did but again we noted would not have been coming off. Nearly isn't impressive playoff run the thunder taking down the seventy three win juggernaut and I I think the interesting thing is that lineup thunder used in that series against the warriors where they played Andre Roberson is power forward effectively to counter the warriors death lineup took most Serge Ibaka sometimes Stephen Adams off off the court and played with just one traditional big man that would have been interesting lineup to see against those cavs teams particular with love out of the lineup because they were replacing him and there was partially due to the match with the worst but they were replacing them with Richard Jefferson. You know if that's you know Richard Jefferson and Lebron. You're I mean you've got durant to defend Lebron. You're not really worried about Richard Jefferson boosting your small lineup so I think the war the thunder continue playing that lineup frequently in the N._B._A.. Finals and you know it's probably pretty successful. I don't know if I would say that clear favorites but I would give them a pretty good chance to win that series so percentage wise fifty five sixty. Would you say I mean it's it's tough to Siamese. We sauce Cleveland such a high level in the last three games that series but it's unclear how much of that was kind of Steph curry wearing down after the injury obviously dream on was suspended for game five. I mean I I I. I'd say it's pretty close to fifty fifty between those two teams. Okay that's enough but it's still a lot better than what the thunder actually getting that they didn't get to the playoffs that are they making the finals at all and then they lost Kevin Durant that offseason so do you think do you think if they win the championship. Do you think Kevin Durant stays in Oklahoma City. So nothing guaranteed I mean we we've just seen now with Kawhi Leonard which obviously very different he played just the one season in Toronto was treated there rather than choosing to extend his contract..

"The New York knickerbockers traded there. Good player. I use the same thing. Lert advisedly. They're trading at twenty three year old Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for a bunch of stuff. Some first round picks some salary cap relief throw in a de'andre Jordan here. And there the initial response ban to this trade was from Knicks nation universally negative that in-store response was people basically like throwing them selves off off a bridge. Then the smart people came in and said, actually, this was a smart trade for the next year. Your Kevin pelton, we love Kevin pelton here on this program that this was this was a good idea for them to acquire some assets. And then you Ben Mathis lay where the backlash to the. Backlash your natural in light explaining that dumb. Take explaining the no the initial gut reaction leading with your gut was right in this case that it was dumb. It was stupid people should be angry. Can you explain this take cycle and your view of how it developed? Well, sure. So I I mean, you like you said the initial reaction was just just complete panic and disbelief all although tinged with with a little bit of belief because the next basically do this every five years, they get rid of like, whatever caused you had for hope, whether it's you know, the nice start to this debt season they had with the Mari style..

NBA Rumors: Latest on Bradley Beal Trade Talks

"You'd be okay with it. Because I still feel like smart wizards fans and observers value him. More highly than he appears right now because it's clear that like innovate cume beals a better player than he's showing this season. Right. Yeah. I agree. Particularly if you have another star in place Beal can be great complementary piece, and he would work next to Cam by let me tell you something. I don't want more of it Williams or Nick petunia and a mid first round pick for Bradley Beal, no offense, Charlotte, but my personal bar is a little bit higher than that. But to be a hundred percent, honest, I think that the reason you had to trade deal is because if you're if you're trading one of those guys you're leaving the players left behind shorthanded to ever really do anything that matters in the east. And so if you trade wall if you trade auto and say, all right, we're going to build around Beal Bradley Beal's already midway through his prime, and it's hard to suddenly find pieces that are. Going to like make him a viable contender. And so ultimately, you're going to have to just start from scratch, if you if you do any of this stuff, and so Bill my standards are like I would take two first round picks from the Hornets. I would take two I from from any team that's trying to grab him. Or if a team like the Lakers are not going to trade Brandon Ingram, but I would I would want at least one intriguing young player on top of a pick from another team. And God knows what Ernie Grunfeld will actually negotiate. But that would be my hope. Nice. I've got another super depression question for you. So my buddy, Kevin pelton ESPN ranked basically all the wizards players by trade, value and hilariously. He had John wall as eight out of ten. And number nine was Dwight Howard and number ten was yon maheen me. And I'm actually wondering did he overate wall? Is there a possibility that wall should should've been tenth like in other words, of course, he's a much better player than maheen me. But his contract is significantly worse than me. He'd me with a lot more risk sort of longer

"ESPN's VP irate. He's release have the Celtics with the second best percentages to both make the finals at nearly forty percent and to win the NBA championship had eighteen percent. Only behind of course, then champion warriors, Chris are the Celtics. Now the biggest threat to the wars. This will come off as a completely Homer opinions. I cover, but I absolutely feel that way. And what I think is interesting is that we only saw them healthy for such a short glimpse last season and not just five minutes in the regular season where they actually look very good out of the gate. Their offense looked really Chris, but during training camp, you just saw there was supposed to be this time where we're going to take awhile for all to come together.
