Charlie Pierce on the North Carolina Power Station Vandalism

"That was the first putting on the controversial drag show. Right, but you said that. I think Rachel maddow did a great job last night. She did. Buying this into other attacks on power stations. Yeah. But as you said, there was an October drag event and where was it Sanford? In a photo taken at that event, the group is seen flashing a white power symbol, the Proud Boys, one man's wearing a hat that says shoot your local pedophile. And then I've keep mentioning this, what's his name, sheriff buford pusser down there. So one of the most vocal opponents of the show was a woman named Emily grace Rainey, I had mentioned her last hour, Charlie retired army psyop specialists, she got for her. Yeah, we should stop and just ponder that for a second. Yeah. I mean, yeah. There's nothing, again, there's nothing that can possibly go wrong with having a former psyop specialist leading your grassroots. I don't rather than checking her. Tips for, I don't know, gunpowder, he just prayed with her and said there's nothing here. The maga sheriff. I mean, and you were saying, you're writing in here about her. She first got her maga on by ripping down police tape, strung it cost public playgrounds when North Carolina closed them as part of a pandemic protocols, then she led a group of people from North Carolina to Washington for the festivities on January 6th. Something, as you say, the army has found worthy of scrutiny. She was an active voice against the drag show, then boasted on social media about her knowledge concerning the attacks on the power station. So then rainy post, yeah, she said she posted on Facebook. About this. And I mean, I don't like you said Charlie, I don't know, she was in sigh off. So I don't know, but she clearly seems to know something about it. I don't know if she was involved, but you have a sheriff that just says, oh, yeah. I love you afraid. If you're afraid with her, you're no one way or the other. I'm sure, because I'm sure I'm sure the sheriff's. Degree in sacred theology will come in handy. Yeah. Yeah, I don't get the shot. I think the sheriff is to be perfectly honest with you. I think the sheriff knows who these people are too. Right. Right. I mean, that's not a very big place. And if you're planning on shooting up a power station, the word's going to get out. Yeah, yes, Travis. I just want to say, not just shooting up a power station, but shooting with power station and knowing how those stations work and how you can take out the power in a long and lasting way. Exactly what to do. They've said that clearly that these people do what they were doing. And I think Rachel pointed that out. Most people don't even know what one is or what it looks like or what you would have to do to disable it, right? Yeah. Well, these guys, these guys shot exactly what they were aiming at. Yeah. And they were and they shot what they were aiming at and what they were aiming at was the parts of the power station that would cause the longest blackouts and the most damage. And would take the longest to repair. It is right when you terrorism.

Yeah. It's actually going to get a hearing. I can hardly wait until I can hardly wait to hear what she comes up with for that. He's working on a bunch of new material before he goes on his federalist society chuckle on tour. Yes. So explain to people that don't understand what, so he joked about black Santa, children and clan robes and dating websites as the Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday in a case weighing a web designer's bid to avoid working on same sex weddings because she's a conservative evangelical Christian. So try to explain this to people and what Alito's point was he was trying to he was trying to he asked whether a black sand at the mall is obligated to take a picture with a child dressed in a clan outfit. So then they tried to get him to explain what a Klan outfit is. Yeah. Right. My question would have been. You mean like the one that's like in the back of your closet? Hi. Which is why I will never be on the Supreme Court. Right. But is it me? They sound like callers to right wing radio shows to me. The Supreme Court Justices. What about if? You know, it's like the whataboutism arguments, right? Well, they're not even good ones. Right. You know, they're not even good one about arguments. They're like, you know, the people who do their own research on the Internet and, you know, aha. I found it, you know, I found the landmine that will destroy the libs forever.

Ronald Daniels has been replaced by a pillow. Let's see if anyone know can tell the difference. She said, as I've repeatedly said, white supremacy neo nazism hate speech and bigotry are disgusting and do not have a home in the Republican Party and you said the problem is the Republican Party has found a home in all those things. Like, yeah, absolutely. They absolutely have found a home in the Republican Party. Yeah, that's why the project has to be to reduce the Republican Party as it presently constituted the rubble, let them rebuild something that makes, you know, that has at least a tenuous connection to sanity.

Forgiving student loans and legalizing weed would bring in Joe Biden. But it canceled out every vote over 65. I mean, that turnout among Gen Z was really extraordinary. Yeah, and I thought it was, I thought what I thought was really interesting was that people are news news outlets were counting up the votes cast on college campuses. Like I found out you found out that Gretchen Whitmer got 95% of the vote at the University of Michigan. Yeah. I think Chris, I think you're around moderate. They came out with what the count was among the Arizona state students. It was 96%. Yeah, that's true. I don't think I've ever seen that before. I don't think I've ever seen news outlets go try to get those particular numbers. Yeah, but only about 8000 out of a 50,000 student campus voted, so I don't know that. ASU that much. But still at least they voted. When they voted overwhelmingly for Mark Kelly, so every little bit helps.

I think that people are going to run away from her soul like lemmings over the cliff after what happens. There's no reason to vote for him. The only reason to vote for him would have been if the Senate was on the line. Right. Yeah. That's the only reason anybody any sensible human being would have for voting for him.

And I'm wondering how many people in Iowa think they're voting for Al Franken. That's fine. You know, seriously. And it's life and death for old chuck and he's not, you know, he's built for comforting and built for speed. He's not built for the home stretch right now. Yeah. So who knows? I mean, I mean, I think you're going to, I think what you are going to see is a lot of split ticket voters. Yeah. Yeah. For example, I think in Iowa, Kim Reynolds is probably going to get reelected governor. But grassley could lose. Yeah. Whitmer's going to win. You know, I think the democratic gubernatorial candidates are in great shape. Do you? I hope so. Tony Evers in Wisconsin, I'm sending novena upwards for, but I think a lot of them, I think a lot of them are going to survive more Healy's going to win, you know, from here or there in Massachusetts, not the typical of anything.

I don't believe any of the polling out of Georgia. I really don't. Nobody's been able to predict Georgia correctly for about ten years now. Yeah.

We're on the very brink of handing the country over to the lost and the mad. And I didn't think this midterm can feel more important in a week, but this is just, it's just everything. You said I've watched the steady descent of American conservatism and its primary public vehicle, the Republican Party into the terminal depths of the prion disease. And it just, as we were saying today, after everything was debunked that they said over the weekend, they've just doubled and tripled down, right? Well, apparently they've moved along now to this being some sort of deep state flight. Yes. Yes. You know, which is contradicted, I would point out by the guy who committed the crime. Right, yeah.

Charlie Pierce: The GOP Assault on the Vote Is Reaching Boiling Point

"By the way, you quote you quoted a guy at the Trump rally on why he loves Trump. The biblical principles that Trump embraces is what I really like about him. I've never heard another president invoke the name of God and Jesus as much. He's embracing biblical principles, follow the Bible, and you can't go wrong, and you just said a cult, moi. He's embracing he's embracing biblical principles and he'll probably have to like send them some hush money. And for a while. Yeah. Because that's what he does to anything he embraces, I think. And I thought this one thing you retreated was parody, but it is actually from the heritage foundation. It says the price of skittles jumped 42% from last year, not to mention the cartels are stuffing skittles bags with deadly fentanyl, happy Halloween from the Biden administration. Would you like to, you know, go ahead. I mean, maybe they are smuggling the stuff in that way. I mean, it's possible, I guess. But as you pointed out, over and over again, they're not going to give the product away. That way. Drug dealing does not work that way. No. Yeah. Charlotte, let's get to your because unfortunately we're short on time, but that's because that's because I'm a fool. That's all right. But to your piece, the GOP assault on the vote is about to come to a boil is what you were just referring to. You said it's all coming together in Arizona and the Supreme Court should be so very proud. The personal right to bear arms dovetails with the increased constitutionality of voter suppression, two sons from different mothers. Wow, you went pundit there for a moment. But as you were talking about these armed individuals with the tactical gear outside the drop boxes, and you said the national Republican Party is all in behind the notion that 2022 elections are already corrupt at parties de facto leader traffic in this poison should surprise approximately nobody. I mean, to your point, Charlie, what do we do about this? I know. I saw one grandma, you know, telling them off, which good for her, you know, I would just say don't be intimidated by them, right? I mean, that's the only in terms of what you can do individually. That's about it. Until you can elect a Congress that is sufficiently veto proof to give us a Voting Rights Act again. And somehow, you know, make it Supreme Court proof and I don't know how the hell you do that at this point. But yeah, I mean, you've got one of our two political parties with no respect for anything anymore. Yeah. None. I mean, top to bottom stem to stern from the U.S. Senate to school boards. You know, that's where we're at. And it's a situation that was created, deliberately. And now it's, you know, now it's Chernobyl. Yeah. It's running beyond control. Charlie, I don't know what the chances are of getting what we have in California across the country. But to me, this argues more and more, this violence against poll workers and intimidation to drop boxes for mail in voting to make just mail in make that the law of the land. I mean, it's what we have in California. It's roughly the same principle as to why they fought RU 44 86 so hard. Because you can have your sense of privacy and do what you need to do, and they can't come in like, you know, glue their heads to your door or whatever. Right. Or shoot your doctor in the head. Right. Yeah. No, exactly. By the way, my favorite headline of yours ever. Steve Bannon unlikely to feel the slap on the wrist through his many collared shirts. That's my man Vic brand down esquire headquarters. I'm not a headline guy. But I too appreciated that. Great deal. But does he wear long sleeved shirts or does he wear short sleeved shirts? I think they're long sleeve. Yeah. I think really because that would be horribly uncomfortable, I would think. Yeah. Yeah, you would think. Of course. You know, then again. Then again, he looks like gout got gout. It belongs in the Smithsonian. Once tried to say in The New York Times, you know, that's probably, you know, you sacrifice comfort a long time ago. Yeah. Well, why is he still able to do a show, by the way? I know. I know. Why isn't there a gag order on this guy? I know. Whatever happened to like cuffing people as soon as a sentence comes down and taking them to jail. Whatever happened to that. Well, I mean, it's releasing, I mean, for all we don't like the guy. He wasn't convicted of very much. Right, but he was still convicted of ignoring a congressional subpoena. Right. Which is a crime. Right. But that's a decision. Yes, if he was a 13 year old black kid in the sky. That's what I mean. Who makes the decision? I appreciate that. But so the judge makes the decision whether he gets to be free on bail or go to jail right away. I mean, the judge was the judge was plainly doing his trumpian duty there. He didn't find him practically, you know. Steve Bannon can raise $6500 in an afternoon. Yeah. So, you know, I didn't have any expectations that he was going to wind up in jail

What Damage Could Electing Election Deniers Cause

"Oh, this is, by the way, I asked for the numbers here is Charlie pierce. Election denials will be on the ballot in 48 of 50 states. And make up more than half of all Republicans running for congressional state offices in the midterm elections nearly 300 Republicans seeking those offices this November have denied the outcome of the last presidential election. Many will win more than a 170 election deniers are running in districts or states where Republicans are expected to win. You said it is impossible to overstate the damage this situation could create. The big lie about 2020 already has poisoned politics for the next decade or so. It's accelerated the progress of the prion disease affecting the higher functions of the Republican Party, perhaps beyond recall and electing these people will validate their delusions and set them in concrete. The Secretary of State will send their state's elections into utter chaos and got alone knows what the new Congress Curtis will deface and vandalize. Charlie, that's really quite serious. And what do we do about this? To give proper, excuse me, to give proper credit. I survey a compendium done by The Washington Post, which spent obviously, it seems like three months putting the list together and it's inside the number. Some of these people are really crazy.

"Though or anything. I mean, for me, for me, it wouldn't change it. It would be an amazing achievement to do that, but it wouldn't change it because I already think of him as a tremendous score. And, you know, those kind of scats, they I don't know how much they correlate because the games were so different. Sure, it would mean a lot but you already think of Paul is the great scorer of the modern age and you can argue Paul and Larry all of that. I do think it's important to point out the rebounding the assists Paul was a tremendous passer and playmaker, and you really saw it over the second half of his career the way he could set up others. Just not a selfish player. As a tale of two halves his career, you know, he learned the hard way over the first half and he cashed in over the second half. And by the end, he goes to the wizards and now he's like the old hand who's teaching them how to win and making the big shots at the end when you remember how he ended his career with them. And it's just a total twin. Cut you off, but the NBA Twitter account put out a like the top 34 plays of Paul Pierce's career. And, you know, they, you know, just like highlight after highlight and it's, you know, it's basketball porn as a Celtics fan. But the number one play NBA career was that stupid jumper to end his career as a wizard, like, that's the top play of his entire career. It's not even the Celtic uniform. Yeah, that's somebody who doesn't live in Boston, put that together, probably stupid. Yeah . So anyway, yeah. Look at wherever you rank him. I think everybody's got agrees one of the top 75 players. Everybody should agree that he was part of changing the negative trend into a positive one for the NBA and setting it up. So there was a moral equivalency that was greatly threatened before he came along. And just this example, he said of an old dog can learn new tricks that he and rail and both became defenders because they were put into a different environment, it's just helped me it's just helped me understand all sorts of players in the MBA and wonder about who they would be if they were in different places..

"He's been a mentor in some regard. I'm not sure exactly the amount or what level to the new guys to Jason and jaylen. I mean, there's that great picture of Paul Pierce, high 5 and Jason Tatum and for Taylor makes a huge shot. I love that photo. It's just like The Old Guard the new guard coming together for a real quick snapshot. I do believe this Boston team can look at the career of Paul Pierce and what he has been able to accomplish over his career and say, yeah, he was the hell of a score. He was an all star for so many years earlier his career, but it was the unselfishness of him later on that really made him an NBA champion. I think this particular group could use that as an example to maybe fuel them and use that to maybe send an example for what they need to do the next step of their career as they get older into their primes in. Yeah. I mean, there were all sorts of little important things going on in that dynamic among those three guys. And especially with Kevin and Paul, and I mentioned that the story I did on how they put together the trade, and it was on the cover of SI for the preview issue for that season which turned out to be their championship here. And it's a picture that big three and garnets in the middle and he's the bigger figure. He's walking towards the camera and he's ahead of the other two. And so the picture tells you that he's the main guy. But if you look at Kevin Garnett in the picture, his thumb down by his hip is pointing to the side. It's pointing a Paul Pierce. And what he's telling you the viewer he's saying, this is really the guy. He's pointing to Paul. This is really the Celtic. This is going to be our leading score. And so in all sorts of ways you saw all that year, Kevin Garnett, making clear to everybody that Paul Pierce , he was saying, in my mind, Paul Pierce is the guy. Paul's been here forever. He's our original Celtic. He's got lead us in scoring. So he showed this respect to Paul all the time. And it really made a difference. I just think about the blending of cultures there that happened and how it applies to what the Celtics are hoping to achieve this year. And it's sort of why I'm really optimistic about the Celtics team. I think they're going to win more games than maybe Vegas thinks. Because you see it in sports all the time when you've got two cultures meeting and both of them want to win, but neither one knows how. So you've got you've got Jason and J one and those guys and it was dysfunctional last year and you can see the frustration in them. But they didn't know how to fix it. Well, now you have this new coach come in, who comes from the spur system who speaks directly to players when the doka was a player himself. He was a very tough minded role player. He didn't mind getting into fights. He would confront people. He got in their face. He's going to bring a little bit of that to a team that really, really wants that. It's going to be a stark contrast between him and Brad Stevens. And I think they're just going to want to hear everything this guy saying a little bit like Paul want to hear everything Kevin Garnett was saying..

Anyway. Paul Pierce, man. The truth, the Hall of Famer. The week. Big week for the Celtics. Big week for the Celtics. Paul's going in. Bill Russell going in a second time. Mike Gorman going into the Hall of Fame. Big bleak for the Boston Celtics. Yeah. Big freaking week, man. Big week. That's awesome. That's awesome. It is. The only thing that would make it a little bit more awesome is if pierce did finish his career, I'm glad things went the way they did because we got some pretty good players around here now. But don't tell me you don't wish that Paul played every single season agree. Because I know you did. No, I do. I do. I do wish that. But I also know that if we didn't have if that trade doesn't happen, we don't have this damn and jaylen Brown and it's easy not to be sour about it. Yes. Absolutely. It was the right thing to do. But boy, it would, I mean, sentimental sentimentality wise. This would be so much sweeter if he never played, especially if he never played for the Nats. Let alone Washington, but that's for nothing team, though. Before. Until the last 12 months. Yeah, even coming back. He didn't come back to bite us like ray did. See how he did that? But I don't think that Paul, you know, Paul's absence, you know, we were down and out of it. Whatever happened in Brooklyn was kind of a unconquerable, the stuff in Washington that he did. It was good for what it was. But you know, we were out of it. He was doing something else somewhere. It kind of gave you a rooting interest while the Celtics were so bad in the interim period in 13 and 14 and 15. And then obviously we came back up pretty quickly. I mean, think about it this way. If you don't do that, and Paul finishes his career here. You don't have those nets picks. You know, KG, let's say KG finishes his career here too. You're probably hitting bottom. Last year, two years ago, you know, 1819 20 somewhere in there. You know, maybe you got a shot at Lucca. You know, I don't know, but you're 8 years past that trade now, right? We're 8 years past that trade. And we are, I don't know that we're knocking on the door of championship. But we're on the rise. We're. Exactly. Can you imagine not being starting that run now, you know? That much further away. That's tougher, you know? I mean, there's a lot that we've talked about how great it is to have young players and follow the rise of those players. But to have a couple three more years of Paul and KG declining that would have been tough to watch. It was tough. It would have been sad. Speaking of which this whole rumor about Paul Pierce getting traded in Cuban confirming it. And the thing is this, I believe, I believe that that conversation happened. I just think that that conversation likely happened the same year the nets trade happened. After Danny had a comment..

", like Ricky the earbud or something like that? Yeah. I would love to do that. If you have something to say about Paul Pierce, I can see it. Yeah, so I mean, Paul Pierce, I appreciate the fact that he's I mean, he's always this during his career as you very well know from covering him in person for so long during his prime that he just candid and very interesting. And it isn't afraid to and always love to take shots of LeBron. And he kind of hit the trifecta in this SI piece with Chris mannix. On ESPN stuff, but then, you know, it gets into the reunion stuff with KG and ray and Rhonda, where I'll ever happen. And I'm also intrigued as well with the talk of the KG pierce reality show slash podcast where they potentially go to things like the running of the bulls or other skydiving or whatever. I feel like that could have some real potential behind it. But I wonder if how motivated those guys to do it like that is it going to be worth it? Financially for them to do that stuff. Yeah, I think it depends on the money. I think they're both probably pretty financially motivated at this point. So yeah, I mean if you're talking about jumping out of planes and running with bulls, I think you want some money. I would love to see KG square off face to face with a ball. I don't know necessarily that would be an interesting. If this show does come to fruition, that would be an interesting bet. Who will win just mono emanu? Like most of the people run in the opposite direction, but I wonder if KG would just run towards the bulls. And see what happens. It could be like running of the KGs, the bulls would start running in the opposite direction. But Mac Jones, he is him and Trevor Lawrence are your two favorites right now. Wow. Interesting. Plus three 50 for Mac Jones, winning rookie of the year. I mean, I think the difference being as offensive for a few years, how they do it, by the way. But I think it's just like Trevor Lawrence imagine is going the Jags will probably still be kind of shitty. Whereas Mac Jones in a position to potentially lead your team to the playoffs or maybe even, I don't know, the bills are pretty good. But plus three 50, that doesn't tempt me very much. Yes, too. That's yeah. That guy, we wanted that guy plus 700 plus 800 plus three. We need to make it two weeks ago. It was when we were going to make mister chance there.

Earlier in his NBA career and his Boston Celtics career. Have you been keeping up? You're going to Springfield this weekend. Pierce getting inducted into the Hall of Fame this weekend. Kevin Garnett will be presenting him. Will you be in attendance for this? I will not be in attendance. Are we intended? They do press conferences on Friday and ask me a mohegan sun. And then the actual induction will be on Saturday. So I will be in attendance Friday for the press conferences will be watching remotely things on Saturday night, but that is they have to say, we will get into this later, but they have to save KG introducing pierce for last, right? That's to be a requirement of the evening. I would hope. Who else is in the is in this class? It's like Bill Russell has a coach. I think Bosh, Chris Webber. Pierce is definitely the biggest name amongst former MBA players. Are you staying for are you staying at mohegan Friday night? I am not playing today. I believe my wife Kate would have a word of me to stand when he can sign up. I think in our 5 month old for I think babies are a lot of mohegan. I'm sure they're allowed. I probably saw way too many of them out in Las Vegas during summer league. But given the given the royal situation, what will probably save that trip for at least two weeks two. Hey, so we're going to talk a little bit more about this pierce thing towards the end of the podcast. But to start off really quick, if I gave you, let's say you had $500 burning a hole in your pocket. That you had that you felt comfortable that your wife said, okay, you can use this to gamble a little bit.

Jim o'brien who had stabilized the team. After rick pitino quit in two thousand one resigned midway through the season in two thousand four age hired doc rivers as head coach like age rivers. Came into the situation. A believer in pierce. Here's rivers to the magic killing us at halftime. I'm like how is a stat. Athletic guy telling us and then when i told him when you get there you realize that what that at all is in great shape but it was a super athlete but even so fundamentally sil- it's you alton missed his athleticism you know and so relaxed. We laugh cloudy. Lock the celtics. No we're rebuilding and rivers while a fan of pierces. Talents wanted him to continue to evolve. As a player. I came in. You know with the mindset. That i had to help halsey that he had to play a different game to be great like He didn't need me to. He was talented skilled and native changes. Game he just. I thought were. I was born for him. Shot selection and how he played you know lended for him. The matt fishing and so early. That you remember that old thing it's Been read about one hundred times but early in the year. I caught a mantis argue a great shooter. And you say what you shouldn't like forty percent said so either you're great shooter and take them bad shots or you're not a great shooter and for him to hear that for you know He was an all star rating in. Oh soaps that was he was he was taken aback by that and so i told him what i thought would make him a better player You know getting off the ball back to the ball and moving in that venue stationary target and hold the ball dancing Which made i thought defensively. It's easy to guard scratchy on a team. That wasn't that great. I dotted really's in. So i told him that i really believe that i'm not going to change. I'm going to push it on them. and you know ended today. Be good for him. You know You know one thing. I learned chris as coaches especially when a guy like that. Sometimes you gotta make a decision. Do they wanna to change. is good for them and then the last question is they want. Are they just satisfied where they're at and that's good or do they are they you know in the way. I coach him as i want to coach to. You're going to be sunday who you are today. But some guys don't want that and you have to try to figure that out as a coach Whether they could be better. Not some guys are happy. You know what i'm saying. And the reason i went that route with ball because i get into gym every day by working on his game every day and so i'm thinking this guy clearly wants to be better. It's not even close. Now is my job to convince them. There's a better way to become better. And if you remember the big game the game it was but of a stretch still kept hope day but i took them out With you know five minutes left then put them back here. We lost the game And after the game. I walked in the locker room in front of the team as a ball. If you think. I'm gonna change. That's and you know he had something to say. We went back from four. I thought that went on for a couple of weeks And then paul on his own watson my authors and says we're good. I got you I'm open my and i've never been loved. I can't even tell you. But i don't know. What his percentage was in the for sure. I got there Before that year to the end of that year. But i guarantee you as a big improvement and once that happened you know the trust. Was there peers issues. The rivers were resolved but his issues with the celtics remained in the private career pierced. Want to play for a contender by two thousand six. Boston looked far from it. The celtics won twenty four games during the oh six. Oh seven season over several meetings with boston's front office. Pierce expressed his frustrations. Here's age. You know the most difficult time was in the year that we were really struggling in. Oh six or seven. When paul got hurt you know that was when we basically told paul you know meeting with paul Not just not just in one meeting that we had with wickham pags but trying to keep call on board with the team while he was fighting an injury and trying to get him to see.

Derek at the club pierce approach to women while they spoke a man approached and told pierce. One of the women was assistant. Pierce says he apologized. And that's one of the last things. He remembers a champagne. Bottle crashed on the side of his head. A group of men swarmed him and began stabbing pierce across the back chest and stomach. One knife wound punctured his lung. Another slipped half an inch from his heart. The petits eventually dragged pierce away and rushed him to a nearby hospital. Still groggy pierce. Ask the doctors. Am i going to live rick. Pitino going to high school where his mom was feeding told that the league was moved centimeter left to right. He wouldn't be alive when i looked at him at the hospital that night. I actually was worried that history was over the way he looked what the most amazing thing was the next day how he looks from that night so the next day blew me away because when you when i visited a hospital is at least his season's over so he later remarkable recovery but he was also extremely fortunate. Lucky chris wallace. I get a call. Four four thirty in the morning. Says i didn't hear anything tonight before. And i'm i don't know i don't know if anybody got contact with me. I get a call from just noise. Sues rix executive assistant as say in paul's been stabbed always fairy serious edition critical that sort of thing and i'm trying to think which hospital he was at tough saba late and downtown boston which played an important role. It is essential recovery. And so i get up get dressed in drive in. Traffic's i mean drive down. There is no traffic at that time of morning in the hallway on just by mind's racing there's no updates on the radio or start today like social media twitter. I'm i'm in the car by myself with no additional information other what i heard initially sound like this he allies. I mean what the hell we is like. It's at a hospital. i go up on. Icu floor and it's like out of a movie. He's he's behind glass mate so they could seem in a bed. He's you know he's out. He's got tubes going everywhere and like it dot. I mean this guy. Go to make it. And so i didn't really get the information couple hours that he was definitely out of the wizards are as you know losing it. His lifeless sort which is obviously the big issue. I did so this was scariest. Hell miraculously pierced not only recovered. But a month later he was in the celtics. Starting lineup on opening night. Pierce played all eighty two games that season averaging a career. Best twenty five points per game. He did it while wearing a vest underneath his jersey to protect his body from the physical trauma while everyday grappling with the mental trauma that came with nearly losing his life. Here's patino we'll tell you the truth when i went to the hospital and saw him. I didn't think there's any way he's gonna play And then just flew. That was later. It was remarkable. The recovery may also to be tough enough to not only play but play great after that incident. Remarkable in the future after getting stabbed digging down the road when he recovered what it was like. I was unbelievable. that's why i was talking to violent. You know what they expect. He had done economies. Lay down and obviously jude stamped. Times low shows how much heartened competitors we had how blessed was banned comeback. Play but Kinda sounds tigra played a was that. That's that's that's how he was as a player And i think that's people this debate dispensing of boston. May people really really fond of and Started become the fandom over the next few years pierce blossomed into one of the nba's top forwards. He was an all star in two thousand two. He led the nba in total points scored that same season after pierce scored. Forty two points against the lakers in two thousand one shaquille o'neal label pierce the truth. A nickname that stuck for the rest of his career. In two thousand and two the celtics led by pearson antoine walker advanced the eastern conference finals pierce believed a championship was within reach danny ainge however did not in two thousand three. The celtics hired age a member of the nineteen eighties titles teams in boston to run basketball operations. One of ages first moves was to trade walker ending what had been a successful walker pierce partnership here's walker. I was devastated more. We'll be zach. Whereas i was devastated. I thought we will finally built in sub to where we had a playoff flood. Even though we got sweb we wanted to find the twice. We were right there when new jersey we played over to use bad probably twenty times that we will really be compensation with them that We knew we had to get a little better personnel wise. We thought we was probably a point. Guard away some really making a real serious run And then coming off that believe that we would. We can get it done We had such a Level respect of as dual. We knew we knew each other really well. We can get on each of the week and push each other. It was that we could do to each other. We had that type of special buys. I was i was devastated. I couldn't believe that they'll that i got traded. Here's wondered if he would be next but didn't see it that way. He believed in paul pierce. He just didn't think pierce had the right cast around him. Here's age. I loved off from from an outsider looking in doing broadcasting following the nba and and broadcasted many celtics games I was a big big fan of paul pierce. I thought he was very special player. So when i had the opportunity to when i took over the celtics job. I mean he was the only untouchable guy on that team. And i just felt like the team had done pretty well A couple of years prior but the team was not sufficient enough for paul to have much success at that moment of time it felt. We needed to make lots of changes. Even before i.

"pierce" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix

"You know after mates after free throws after timeouts. Can you give them something other than that. You know someone was talking to someone the other day and they were saying you can watch. Nba game and you can see twelve possessions than not one place call. It's not a knock on the league. That's an understanding that players are good enough that they know how to play out a flow. And that's how the game go you may have to tie it back and give them something to reorganize them. But that's just how the game's going to go and it's really understanding that. So i think going through the scenarios of how do you best prepare your players Of how to play conceptually so that they can play freely is really important. Of course that requires practice time which there is less and less and that's in that preparation ties into and that's this is management. This is leadership. How do you manage the time you you have to do it via film you should have a great staff that can implemented an individual workouts and you have to maximize when you're together as a time so that you get reps and you get the main points across to the guys You know that's the and that's really if you you speak to any coach this year. Forget me used to any coach. That's been the greatest challenge. It's been the availability of bodies and then the Lack of availability of practice sufficient practice. Time yes so. The compress schedule. I'm sure people have seen that phrase way too many times but you know there's there's the the Just the toll. It takes on the players. The games coming very quickly. There's lack of practice time which obviously you can hurt teams as well and then there was obviously just especially in january where the covert tissues postponements skies in protocols are still guys in protocols now just not in the same volume. Gimme some sense from the just from the inside. Lp have just just how difficult this season has been you. Think for players and coaches that. It's like injuries. The league says injuries as a statistical matter are not there are some a lot of really high profile ones and so it has our attention. But they're saying you know what it's actually only one more game per month. The compress schedule isn't that compressed. It was more compressed in the lockout season. Eleven twelve and the injuries aren't really but still. I keep hearing that this. This feels like a more taxing season for teams and part of that i think is getting up early for covid tests and everything that goes with that is has it been that striking of a difference. I think so. I think it's it's different. You know. I thought especially in december and january for the first time doing it in this fashion i thought it was bizarre How difficult in how different it was. We would fly to a to a city in and then that was the last time you touch the court.

december january twelve possessions this year first time Eleven twelve one more game per month one place Nba

"What's going on? It's Frank. Michael Smith. And they were talking about Paul Peirce. She just got fired by ESPN. Of course, you know that already what I'm giving you in this video is my opinion of what's actually going on behind the scenes here. I don't have any inside source, but I do have an opinion of what the situation says about a larger part of society and it's not good. So what I'll do is I'll show you the video and then we'll give you my opinion might takes afterwards. Let's run it off. Do you feel like some money girl? Stop playing Monica? What you going off birth? All right. So I've seen that video three or four times now and what strikes me about it is not actually what's going on. Cuz that's Paul's personal life. You want to have a party everything seems legal by all means do it not a good idea to broadcast it but I don't care. I'm not going to judge him for having a party looks like he's having a good time. No one's getting hurt. What I what strikes me is the Monica part this person named Monica who shouts out. It's really hard to tell if she actually knows this person or if this is just another random person commenting on the live Paul's having such a good time. He's cross faded and he's like Monica black girls named I got girls here. I'm getting a massage. Come on over. Everybody is invited. Especially you Monica come on over to the party. I actually think that's a more likely case dead. Then someone named Monica that's his friend is like what you're doing right now seems great. Like let me join you because everyone that's in a sober State could probably tell what's going on in Paul's IG live is not a good idea if people don't really get in trouble for doing this anymore. I'm surprised it even happened people are smarter than that now and that's all address this part of it really quickly. Totally understand why ESPN fired them. It makes sense owned by Disney family-friendly company can't have that stuff. There's a New York Times report that said if someone filmed him while this was happening and he didn't know they probably wouldn't have fired him. But since he chose to put it out on his own platform. Add to fire him but that's not the point of this video. The point of this video is the larger hypocrisy of America. So let me break it down like this in our culture that we consume guns drugs sex, you know through things like I've even seen on espm them playing the the Meg the stallion song the body ADI ADI, whatever I like the songs all about sex ESPN's okay to play that on games CBS is all right hearing her performance and the Grammys ESPN releases a swimsuit edition, you know kids play GTA off all these rappers rap about selling drugs. We are cool with all of this and I'm not saying I'm not cool with it. I'm cool with it. We're all cool with it. But then when when someone shows you them having a party smoking some leave weed, which is legal in California having some drinks also legal the girls legal when someone shows you that this them You've been consuming and culture all along then all of a sudden. It's not okay. I have to say once again. I understand what u s p n fired him. That's not what I'm getting at here. What I'm getting at is the larger black point of society where we say yes to this stuff. But when it showed to us we say no we clown you you make fun of you. We troll you why you can't bear to see you can only hear about it. Give me a break. You know, I feel bad for Paul Peirce in this respect and good for him for posting the videos of where he's saying smile get up, you know, he's taking it lightly Paul. She is going to be fine. He's made so much money in the NBA so much money did ESPN people don't know this ESPN contracts. They're still in the millions of dollars. He is going to be good. You get one offer all Thursday $250,000 to host a show with exotic dancers. I think he's going to pass on that probably won't be as best offer. But the point is he's going to be good. Paul Peirce is chilling and it's just it's sad that page. Want to treat other people this way. I just have a hard time understanding the double standard and the apocracy if at all so make of that what you will pause just fired by ESPN from Michael Smith reaction tomorrow for anniversary of the first ever video. I posted it's been one year since I've been a Creator didn't think that I would be leading into that with Paul Pierce's firing party. But here we are twenty Twenty-One. All right, that's it. That's a wrap..
