Dan Bongino: Joe Biden Is a LARPer
"The Dan Bongino Show. You know I'm not really hip to like the lingo and stuff. The kids. Nothing bothers me more than when guys in their 40s 50s and 60s are you know in their eagerness to be young again. Brace your age man. Rock and roll with it. You know work out. Stay frosty. Eat good. You know there's nothing wrong with looking 40 or even 50 with some salt and pepper in your in your beard and you know a couple of you know wrinkles on your face. You've earned over time. They're not wrong with a little bit of leathery skin. You know that's a good thing. So nothing bothers me more when you know we're getting older and people use like that they try to be a gift use like the hip language your kids like it's not my thing I so usually screw it up. So it takes me a while to learn all this. They all talk in code now. I didn't even know what IRL meant. I went on Tim Poole's show and it's like Tim cast IRL. Had to ask Guy, my producer, he's like it means in real life. I'm like oh yeah why would I know that out of my guy and I'm not into like the whole like TikTok scene or whatever. So I found out what LARPing was live -action roleplay like people who pretend to be something else and I used it the in podcast when he had shocking they actually got it right when a few times I ever attempted this and got it right and I thought of Joe Biden like the guy's a LARPer. That's what he does. He LARPs is like a civil rights activist. He LARPs is a guy. compassionate He LARPs is a non -corrupt like stable influence in the White House. He LARPs is a good dad. I'm a good dad. Really you put your like crack -addicted son in front of the Chinese Communist Party to negotiate million -dollar deals you profited from too and sound like a good dad to me. Well it's interesting how he LARPs and use actual aliases too and it always involved Peters which is kind of weird which is of kind like really strange considering

"The Washington Wizards are trading future NBA Hall of Famer Chris Paul to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for a package of draft picks and Golden State point guard Jordan Poole. Chris Paul never actually suited up for the Wizards and was included in the blockbuster Bradley Beal trade with the Suns over the weekend as a salary filler. The Wizards are in rebuild mode and had no reason to keep Paul who has played on several NBA rosters including the Orlando Magic, the Charlotte Hornets, the Clippers and even the Rockets. In Poole the Wizards are taking a chance on a player who less than a year ago received a four -year $140 million extension from the Warriors last year which began with teammate Draymond Green punching Poole in the face at training camp. Poole averaged 20 .4 points per game, a new career high but his defense remained problematic and he failed to just 10 .3 points per game. In the postseason, the $140 million extension made sense when Golden State believed Jordan Poole was bound for stardom but now with the new CBA looming and the NBA's most expensive teams getting punished for their spending, the Warriors needed to find a way to save money for the long haul. Chris Paul has only one year remaining on his contract so he certainly fits the bill. Chris Paul, also known as CP3, has been one of Golden State's most persistent rivals during the Steph Curry era. His Clippers defeated the Warriors in the 2014 playoffs but once Golden State hired head coach Steve Kerr, the Warriors managed to beat Paul's Rockets in the 2018 and 2019 playoffs.

Poole scores 34, Warriors charge back again, beat Clippers
"The clippers have lost four straight since the addition of Russell Westbrook as the warriors beat LA one 15 to 91. Golden State was down by 12 points, but outscored Los Angeles, 42 to 16 in the third quarter. Jordan Poole had a game high 34 points and Klay Thompson added 19 points and 11 rebounds. We are capable of grace birds that can put teams way early. And when we play with together, it's a beautiful sight to behold and tonight was an example of that. In the lost Kawhi Leonard had 21 points and 7 rebounds, Ryan leong, San Francisco
Russell shines in return to Lakers after trade by T-Wolves
"Although LeBron James missed his second straight game with a sore left ankle, the Lakers used a late run to beat the warriors one O 9, one O three. Dennis schroder had 26 points. The difference in the game was the third quarter as the Lakers outscored Golden State 34 to 26. Center Anthony Davis had 13 points and 16 rebounds. We've been a very terrible third quarter team and this is one of the better third quarter teams in the league and we knew that I think we were down two and a half. We want to come out and when the third quarter. Jordan Poole scored 29 points for the warriors. Ryan leong, San Francisco

"Show, but there's gonna be some just some of the most brazen tanking to make sure you get inside that top three that we've seen, I think in a long time. Yeah, no, absolutely. And you're gonna see also, you know, someone always starts three in ten or four and 12, or whatever, who's not expecting it, like things always kind of go wrong and whichever whoever that team happens to be this year, even though it might be a couple of them, like from the middle of the pack, you want to expect them to be that bad. I mean, they're gonna have a tough decision to me. But I think it's valid point and it's been made, but it's way easier to explain the ownership why it's worth it now, like, hey, just watch these two games. It doesn't seem like it's hard of a cell now. You know, if it ever was as to, you know why this guy's a big deal and why it's such a, you know, franchise changing thing, but also I do think I'll add like, you know, from what I've heard and this weekend I went to Colorado Springs to watch young high school kids at USA basketball, you know, get a sense of what's coming, but the people I talk to there too. Scots have been out at practices and pro days and stuff for the last few weeks. So that's kind of back in full swing. As far as far as this year's draft and people are excited about the depth of this class, I think it's looking really good. It helps with the whole thing too. It's like, yeah, you know, you're not going to be unhappy if you get to the Henderson. And yeah, that was going to be my last question here on game one, but he was awesome. Like he looks like a ready to step in point guard right away. I don't know how you compare him to, I saw some of the Russell Westbrook comparisons. He certainly got the athleticism to meet that comp I guess put it this way. If scoot Henderson was eligible this past year when teams are going back and forth on Paolo and Chet and jabari Smith like what he had been the top pick in this past draft and how good is he? Yeah, I think there's a pretty real chance he would have at least I can say for sure he would have been part of that conversation. You know, he's really gotten a lot better. I think since March 2, that was part of what was cool about it is he really showed what he'd been working on as a number one type caliber prospect. I mean, he's so quick with the ball. You know, he told me I talked to him one on one last week and he looks leaner this year. It's on purpose. He maintained his playing weight, but you know all of his training in the off season was trying to shadow. I thought he was a little bit like thicker last year and he was trying to shed that and be a little bit more even faster and quicker. And I think it's evident. His injury, they call it a bone bruise. Ignite won't play for another few weeks, so my guess is you won't miss much time if any at all, hopefully. But yeah, I mean, look, as a man of Chicago, and we always, I don't want to like throw the Derrick Rose comparison out because I treat that young Derek rose with a lot of reverence. But I wasn't the only person who said it. That was kind of what I thought the first time I saw some of these highlights from last year and he was pretty good at times. He was really good at times in the Julie last year. So, you know, they're playing a full schedule with ignite, you know, they're playing the full, like 50 game G league slate. So that's going to be taxing. We'll see how he holds up if he plays the whole thing. But regardless, he's on a really, really promising trajectory. I do think he's going to be, you know, the goal for him I think is to come in and start on day one. He's going to be more in that in the rose John wall vein of really fast guy who makes plays rather than at least at least right now. That's what it projects to be. That type of high octane uptempo guard. But physically he checks the boxes and I think defensively he can keep getting better. His passing has gotten better. Like that was my main thing last year. You know, I haven't seen night play live product 5 times last season. It was just you know how long will it take him to really learn to run a team and they really have been working on bringing that out of him too like vocally and talking and bringing that personality out. And he's getting better at it. So he's a real, really, really legit worker. He's all business. And he didn't even really want to talk about the number one stuff with Victor. We all know he wanted it. He did a good job of deflecting it, but he's coming, man. He's going to be a rookie of the year contender, right? Next year. And one of the better guard prospects in a while. I think at least since John rant, I don't know if I'm ready to say he was a better prospect than John, because I think John rant was a really good prospect with the passing yet, but can you have that type of impact for franchise? That's what the hope has to be. The way that jazz kind of turned around Memphis. Well, one thing we know, he could average 50 points, 15 assists and ten rebounds that he still wouldn't go number one. It would be tough, be tough. There's no GM on this earth. That would take and look, you are way more plugged in on this than I am, but when I was texting some people during that game, like the obsession was real, like the drool, you know, that you could almost see over the phone from the mouth of some of these guys. I mean, this guy, you know, I can't wait, I usually go into the lottery room every year and I can't wait to do it again this year, just to watch the video. You're gonna have fun.

That's for sure to see. Jeremy, good stuff. Last week with all the stuff with Victor with scoot Henderson, your mock draft, I'm sure will be coming very soon, right? I'm sure we can predict the top, but yeah, yeah, I can tell you one and two is right now. You gotta love it, man. Well, I appreciate the time, man. I appreciate it. Anytime.

"Room over the next four or 5 years. Yeah, I mean, I was actually very impressed physically too. You know, he is bigger in his upper body than I thought. I guess, but you know I guess it's been a little while. He's had time to put some weight on. So like, yeah, I don't have too many concerns about him putting on weight. I don't think he needs to be overly muscled anyway. Frankly, like, you know, there's something you add when you add the strength, but there's also things you lose when you add too much muscle. And that was something that I brought up a lot with Chet. In his case and juries out, we don't need to have that conversation right now. We'll see what happens when you get healthy, but yeah, I mean, I think it can really work. Just because it's a size scale league and he's just like the apex of that conversation, right? I mean, there hasn't been anyone with that combination. It's like the sliders are all the way up in both categories, but the other thing is he's so competitive, man. He handled himself so well. And I think that's a part of the conversation that has to be also discussed. How comfortable and ready he seems for the moment, how sure he seems to be of himself. He did a really good job. You know, answering questions is English is really good. He's going to be really marketable. Which is big for the NBA too. International player who also is very going to be marketable immediately doesn't have as much of a learning curve with the media. So everybody should be excited. Except for all the bad games are going to have to watch for everybody trying to tanking, but it's worth it for somebody. When you kind of project him out into the league and it doesn't matter as much as it used to because it's become a positionless game, the NBA, but is he kind of the, you know, supersized the wrong word, but is he like the center that got bit by the spider bug? All of a sudden the supercharged center. We've seen centers become three point shooters over the last ten years, but is he the guy that breaks the mold at the 5? Does he become what some people thought porzingis was gonna become over the last few years? Does he become that guy, the center? Or do you think he's quick enough to defend fours that you could put him in at power forward? How do you kind of see him on a team see him? Yeah, it seems to me like he's gonna be more of a four on offense, right? Like the presenters thing I've heard, people have mentioned that like what we had hoped he was going to be. Big just more athletic, I think. Although, I mean young porzingis was pretty athletic before he was hurt all the time, but you know, I think clearly how comfortably he is handling the ball. He can spend more time on the perimeter. So he's going to be more of a roving type of four on offense whose face is you can play in with another big, but you don't have to. You can close games at the center. Defensively, yeah, I also think you can do both things. I mean, you'll be able to close with him at the 5 if you want. If you want to play another big to sort of protect him, you know, if the other team say you're facing like a valentinus or cappella or someone, you know, someone bruising or even an MB, like someone you just don't want Victor to have to guard the whole game. You know, you can play them with another big and it's not going to be a problem, right? So I think that's a big part of the appeal when you're projecting him as he can play in all types of different lineups, and that's because he can wall off, but he can also help over in black shots. He's really, really good at contesting shots. You know, he can get out and block stuff and he gets forward really well. He gets sideways really well. I mean, he covers ground. One, I think, interesting point. I was talking to Jason Hart. The ignite had told you about this. And one of the things they were trying to do in these two games was just put them in ball screen coverage when they could and to see how he handled it. And then you had something you'll have to learn, but I think he can be a monstrous ball screen defender because he can play drop and then still get a really good contest if you settle for a 15 footer, right? Like say you're trying to stop and pop it, free throw it. I mean, he could still get there. So again, everything really breaks convention. It's hard to say with certainty, but also it's not hard not to get so excited. I mean, I feel like I'm getting carried away. And I don't do this a lot. Like I'm pretty, I'm pretty tempered, usually when I talk about players just because I have seen a lot of things go wrong, but this is not the type of guy I mean, even the most cynical people I've talked to around the NBA are pretty overwhelmed, but you know what it could be. You mentioned playing on ball screen. There are two iconic photos that came from that series of games. One was the one where I think he was coming around and defending in a ball screen. We had echoes his left hand out and scoot Henderson had the ball on his right and it was pulled back and when is so long that he was able to make contact with the ball reaching it across the body of scoot Anderson. That was wild. The other one that struck me was he had a dunk where when his hand was pushing it through the rim, his, as I'm leaning back, doing this podcast, his head was on the was past the side of the backboard. It was bad the side of the backboard. The fucking guy is dunking when he's past the side of the backboard. It was wild. The physical tools on this guy. We've never seen anything like it. He's longer than Rudy. Like he's not only taller than Rudy, but he's longer than Rudy and Rudy, as we've said many times is a walking top 5 top ten defense. Like, you know, he's not as strong as Rudy right now, but he certainly could come into the league with just that in his bag. Let me be a great defensive player where, even if I'm not leading the league in blocks, I'm leading the league and chain shots are contests or all the crazy things that we're seeing these super athletic guys do. Yeah, and remember, and Rudy came into the league older too. I don't know where he was, but he was not 18 or 19 when he came into an MBA. It was a little bit later. He was still sort of a project. So yeah, it was those players, but then also I think the two players for me sitting pretty close to the court there was the one play in the first game where he's coming up in the fast break. He like hits ahead and then like signals to the guard and then takes a dribble hand off and just like stop and pop, like leaning to the left from the left side and it was right in front of me and that was when I was just shaking my head. I don't know if I'm on camera or not, but I was just blew my mind and then there was the other player everybody talked about where he on the fast break dribbles all the way into the corner to take that three point shot. And hits it like fading the side and then you know he showed the mid range stuff. There's really not a lot he can't. He can't do. So again, I want to say there's going to be a little bit of a learning curve because there always is and physically you guys are going to hit him and it already happens. And the refs already don't know how to officiate him. That's one other thing. I'm sure there will be some prerogative from the league to try to protect him a little bit, but like, you know, apparently it's happening in France too. You know, the refs call, they can't call everything on him because guys are hitting them all the time. You can't call every single foul. But then also the goaltending. I mean, there was the one missed, they called that one shot of gold ten. And the ball was clearly still going up, but just like, you're not used to someone getting the ball that high, right? So I think it's like a visual trick for the ref. So they're going to have to learn how to deal with him too. We're all going to have to figure it out. So. These small market teams, whether it's San Antonio, Utah, I'll even throw Oklahoma City in that mix. You never know what they're going to do Indiana if they break the whole thing up and decide to tank like, I get it. Like I get it. You have a chance to get at a minimum. What is it like 8 years out of a guy when you talk about the first contract into the second contract? Before a player option would potentially kick in, like I get it, you know, I think I hate tanking. It's bad basketball, but if you have, if you're trying to put yourself in the best position to draft this guy, you gotta do it. Like not since LeBron, have we had a player worth it, like worth a mailing in the season four. I think. And that's why, you know, Howard Beck and we get into this on at the top of the
"poole" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"What if anything, did you learn about Victor Wen by Yama that you didn't going into this two game experience? Yeah, I think, well, you know, yeah, so it was my first time seeing him live. And a large chunk of MBA, I think, could say the same, you know, as you know, not everyone works internationally. You know, not everyone went over. We had the pandemic, so, you know, the visibility thing was a big factor for him coming over here. And you know, just from my standpoint, you know, I probably watch coming in, I guess putting like 5 and 7 of his games over time, like on synergy and with, you know, the France youth teams and whatever. So I'm familiar with what he did or I was coming in, but I think up close, you know, a just getting the sense of his sheer size, you know, we know he's really tall, it's not news, but you know, you see it in person and you see how it impacts other people. Going into the paint. All the area he covers, just seeing it up close. It's kind of different. And I think the biggest thing though was just, hey, hey, he didn't always shoot it like this, you know? I don't think he's ever made 7th reason a game before, so to show up on this stage and do that. It's pretty eye opening. But I wasn't certain that he was this good of a shooter, clearly he's progressing really, really well. And this is just the ball handling, man. It's really kind of messes with your head. I mean, no matter how much basketball you've watched, we've seen a lot of basketball and just how comfortable he is. I mean, he does have guard like skills. I wasn't sure if it was fair or to build it that way, but you see it now. And I'm sitting there in practice and he goes between his legs three times into a mid range jumper. He didn't make the shot, but that wasn't the point, right? So, you know, everybody, I think I had to kind of recalibrate their expectations. Because oftentimes, we hear a lot of the hype, but these match ups don't turn out with the results you want and guys don't necessarily step up. And there's all kinds of things that can go wrong. And obviously, you know, scoot Henderson getting hurt, was the thing that went wrong in the second game. But from Victor's standpoint, I mean, it was quite a coming out party. And it would be hard to be disappointed. And if you were, I mean, your problem, right? I mean, it's really amazing stuff. Yeah, it was all over social media. Especially the first game. I think the first game when everybody got their first look at one by Yama, everybody was talking about it. Like football people were on Twitter talking about it. We're kind of in that era or eras where we talk a lot about, I've never seen anything like it, right? Like LeBron comes into the draft in O three. And you like, I've never seen anything like this guy who's 6, 7, 6, 8, built like a middle linebacker, the most physically developed 18 year old that I've ever seen. Giannis comes with a draft. We don't really know as much. He went mid first round, but you get to like year three, four of Giannis, you're like, I've never seen anything like this. This guy can play up up tempo can score in a variety of different ways, defend a variety of different ways. When biomass seems to me like to blow both of them out of the water when it comes to we've never standing like it. Like, we have literally never seen a player with that type of size, play with that type of perimeter game. Like his ability. And look, part of me felt like he was trying to take out the whole bag of those two games, like he was trying to show a little bit of everything. I loved his interview. The day before the first game where he's like, I know everybody's here to see me. I know all the eyeballs that are gonna be on this. I love that. So we came into this with the right mindset that he was gonna show out, but like I've never seen anyone kind of drift to the corner, take a fade away three pointer, pull up from 26 feet away, it seemed like from the left elbow. I mean, he's just got more ability to 18 than any other player I've ever seen, including LeBron, obviously Yanis and all the other prep to pro guys we've seen come into the NBA. Would you agree with that? More pure talent than anyone that's come into the league. Yeah, I mean, from what I've seen yes, I mean, I'll play the 5th on LeBron, because I didn't see him when he was that age I don't really remember. I was like ten. You know, I don't have the clearest memory of that time, but look, in someone made this point to me too, you know, GM that, you know, of all the players today on the planet. I mean, he's the most skilled. I mean, maybe all of teenagers in the planet, right? So then that's before you talk about him being 7 foot two or three or 5 or whatever. It doesn't really matter, right? So, you know, I've gotten a lot of questions like people obviously you get the comparison question a lot. People ask me that a lot. And it's hard. I mean, I guess the most common one has been the Rudy Gobert Kevin Durant fusion thing, which I've said before, everyone's kind of said it before. But I don't think that really does it justice. And it's not saying he's going to be better than those guys or what, but it's just like, that doesn't really capture why it's so weird. It is just something that, yeah, I mean, you just said it. I mean, it's something that hasn't happened before. It's a player that hasn't existed before. And you know, I think I've heard some of the older scouts throwing out like luau cinder type comparisons in terms of just like how he moves and scores and I mean, that's not for me to say, but I've heard that. So we're getting all types of lofty stuff getting thrown out, but it doesn't feel weird 'cause it's and again, these were two games, but for him to play this well both times. Again, now he's playing a G league team. It's not like he's playing against a real NBA team, but point being he's 18, right? So there's just, there's so much room to improve the hype feels very justified. It's hard not to get excited, right? I mean, it's hard to nitpick. I think there's things he can improve at. The rebounding, I think we'll have to get a little bit better. He changes more shots, he changes his entire shots. I think sometimes he's a step slowly scoot was able to get around him and finish a couple of times. He's not going to block every single shot. He's going to alter a ton, right? Alone is going to be there. That's kind of like a constant, right? So there's so much to get excited about that it's hard to really nitpick. And again, I think the thing that we will here is big 7 foot mobile guys come with some injury risk, but that's kind of like a truism, right? Like that's not a Victor specific thing. You know, he has a history of injuries here and there. But I think they're very cognizant of that. Nothing has been serious with his lower body, and I think they're just trying to be cognizant moving forward. That's what you say about everyone with that kind of frame. It's like, oh, what if he gets a foot injury? I mean, look out, and then these the obligatory, he's got to add muscle. Look, that's a, obviously true, but B, I look at his body type. I don't know how you see it, but I like that body type. Like, he's gonna fill out like Giannis. Like he is going to be, he's not like, you don't look at him and see the next chat home grin.

"I don't know his personality that well, but he's pretty low key. My experience just watching him through the Conference Finals and finals last year through a lot of press conferences. He's not really fun to press conferences. He's comfortable enough and he's like a good engaging fun personality, but he kind of has this running joke. A camera what it is, but he looks at Raymond rider of the pure guide and says, something about one question, right? Or something like that as he goes in. He doesn't like doing the press conferences. So he's not going to be comfortable being put in this position at all. And I don't get the sense he's the kind of player or the kind of person who's also going to be like, yeah, you know, my way or the highway or it's me or him or like that's not I don't perceive that that's who he is. I'd be shocked if Jordan Poole is going to be the one to say we can't get past this or something. I don't think that'll be the case. If I had to predict and this is just a hunch, my prediction is that Steph will want draymond still here. My prediction is that Steve Kerr having already ridden many waves with draymond green will be willing to ride this one out too. And my hunch is that Jordan Poole is not the kind of person who's going to say that we can't coexist now. My guess is draymond green is here. And if he's not playing opening night because there's a suspension, okay, but he's going to be here for whatever the first game is these eligible for and throughout the rest of the season because he can help them win a 5th championship. Yeah, that's all that matters. I thought it was interesting Steven a going out on TV saying, this is draymond's last year in Golden State. Who knows where he's getting his information. But that's not going to help the pot from not being stirred. And I will just note real quick. I just want to say this much too. Like, draymond green did not have to sit in front of the media for 40 minutes on Saturday. Draymond green did not have to talk at all. Draymond green could have talked in his podcast. He could have issued a two sentence statement written statement through the team. There's a whole bunch of ways you could have done this. And again, look, no amount of contrition and no amount of sitting on a podium and speaking openly for 40 minutes doesn't negate what he did. Let's be very clear. I don't want anybody to misread it. But accountability is about sitting up there and facing the music and he did it within a day of this video leaking. He was up there speaking with the Bay Area media for 40 freaking minutes. don't have to name them who don't have anybody speak for 40 minutes combined on a given day and who have GMs who don't speak 40 minutes combined over the last several years. Bob Myers was out there on day one. The second the story broke speaking to the media and trying to be as accountable in his transparent within reason as he could. Steve Kerr was out immediately Steph Curry was at immediately and draymond green having thrown the punch that the whole world saw, sat up there for 40 minutes to be accountable to answer questions to be transparent to be contrite and to say I accept responsibility for it. It doesn't negate what happened at all, but it speaks, I think, well of the organization and of draymond green that everybody's willing to just address this openly and not hide from it and not try to downplay it. Yeah, I agree. Good for him for standing up there and facing the music for as long as he did. Now we'll see if there's a pathway back for him to for the warriors get back on the same page. Our good stuff, man. Next week, we're gonna have games. So we'll talk basketball and basketball stuff. How about that? How about that? That's exciting. I guess our last pod before the actual game start will be well, it'll be on. Yeah, when game starts Tuesday, opening night, Tuesday, the what 19th? Yeah, we're good to go. Here we go. There we go. I will be in Brooklyn watching the nets take on the new Zion in the new pelicans. I will be in Boston watching Celtics. 76ers. With their new coach. We'll do it again next week, Howard.

The 7 foot four French big man who had two phenomenal games in Las Vegas, 30 plus points, scored in a variety of different ways, defended in a variety of different ways and had anyone who knows anything about the NBA gushing over him. In the last week as we get our first U.S. look at the future number one pick in the 2023 NBA draft, Jeremy Wu are draft insider had a bird's eye view of Victor Wen by Yama. He was in Las Vegas. He went to the games, was at the practices, talked to a lot of people, I'm sure, out in Vegas, Jeremy joins me here on the show. So Jeremy, I want to start kind of here.

"And throwing a right hand at the chin off his teammate. And, and look, draymond is someone who has built a lot of equity with that team. You articulated it very nicely there. The four championships, all he's done for that organization, but as you keep on loony say, he does have some amends to make. It's not as simple as saying I'm sorry and saying I'm sorry to Jordan Poole's family. This is something that's going to take some time to get over. And part of getting over it, I think, is going to be a sizable suspension. Now, I don't know how long that's going to be. Do you give them the 8 games that Bobby portis got for slugging Nicole and meritage? Remember, Carmelo Anthony back in the day, he got 15 games for slugging Marty Collins in a game. That was yeah, but that's an NBA suspension that's a fight that spilled into the stands and it was a year removed from the malice at the palace. Very, very different search. Right. And speaking of malice in the palace, Metta world peace got, I think, 7 games for that James Harden elbow that he hit him in the playoffs. I think he gave him a concussion. He did. That was a vicious, can we quickly do this since you're the boxing guy anyway? Like, the damage matters. Meera had multiple fractures in his face, did he not? I believe he had damage. I don't know what the damage. And Harding was, I believe, concussed. Jordan Poole played last night as we record this. It was a Sunday Night. And played really well. It's not, again, not to downplay the punch, but there was no damage, and it's just like with a flagrant foul, right? Like the same action if a guy falls to the floor hard and smacks his head or, you know, bust something on the way down, it's viewed differently than if the guy fell hard and hopped right back up, right? So sometimes it's the impact. And while we're on it, let me just say this. Because I want to come back to this point. It's not what you and I think about it or what the public thinks about it after having seen the video. It's what the warriors think they need to do as a pragmatic matter to both make sure there's accountability. Make sure that draymond green is held to account and held to a standard and that this does not just pass by, but at the same time, consider how important an intrinsic he has been to their success because by the way, they could win another championship, and they want to win another championship. They want to get that 5th banner. And draymond helped them get the first four. So it's not to say that his ability to help them win championships outweighs everything. Of course not. But there's some weird, difficult, sometimes awkward balance that you have to find and that they have been fighting for out throughout his entire career here. And that's what they're doing again right now. Trying to figure out how do you keep him still in the fold and engaged and then also honor his teammates who have been, you know, one of whom has been punched and the rest of whom have had their trust in him shattered or at least fractured for the moment, to, like it's all of these people matter, right? And including draymond. Unless they're gonna go to the extreme, which I don't, I don't think that's there, but Tim kawakami, who covers Barry sports and the warriors very well for the athletic, among others. Kala kami made the point that we have to go straight to the big picture, that he draymond can be a free agent next summer. He's got a team option for the following season. Is this the point where he's turning 30 and three in March, he's shown some signs of eroding physically. Like, is this the point where you just say, you know what? This is one thing too many and you move on. It's fair to raise that, but I'm telling you, as I read it from what I can gather at the moment, they are looking at the bigger picture here of all of it. This season and beyond, but especially this season, can we win another championship? Can we go back to back again? Is draymond a net plus in that if he still is, then let's figure out how to both make sure that we hold him accountable and do the right thing by everybody here, but at the same time not alienate him or alienating anybody else along the way. Like it's a very delicate dance they're doing, but again, they've been doing this a long time as an organization. I think what this inevitably means, though, is that draymond is not getting that contract extension before next summer. He might not have been anyway. He might have anyway, but I think this puts the final nail in that coffin. And Jordan Poole, I think a lot of this how it plays out is going to depend on how Jordan Poole reacts to all this. Like he has not yet spoken publicly about what happened. Like, is he going to be in that forgiven forget mindset? We're all going to come back together. We're going to win a championship. We don't know what their relationship was like prior to that punch. I don't think what was happening on that floor was the beginning of something. It might have been a continuation of some bad feelings between those two. I mean, look, if you're the warriors, playing the season out is not a bad thing anyway. Before you commit, big dollars and draymond's throwing the word max around in the past before you commit big dollars to draymond green. I kind of want to see not only what does he look like as a player at this stage because he's still an elite team defender. He is a big part of the fluidity of their offense, even if the numbers don't show it, his ball movement is instrumental to what they do offensively, but if he takes a little bit of a step back in both areas this year, it might put the warriors in a position to want to move on. So besides that and seeing how the pool stuff plays out, I mean, draymond's gonna be playing for his next contract. He has a player option for next year so we can opt in, but I'm sure he wants to opt out and maximize his value before he gets too old for a team to want to give him that money. So, you know, this is, it's got a costume a lot Howard. That shot, that punch, that video, it's probably cost him a lot of money. He can get that money back potentially, but it's probably cost him a lot of money at this point. And I am very interested to see how Jordan Poole reacts. Like, I don't know if he's scheduled to speak in the next couple of days. He's going to have to speak at some point. How he responds will go a long way towards telling us the public. How this story plays out. Don't you agree? If he's like, I mean, if he's like, fuck that guy. That's a problem for Golden State. It's probably not going to do that, but if he's like that, Golden State has an all new headache on its hand. Yeah, I mean, I think you're right. I think that, you know, it's not to say that the warriors entire decision and it's a momentous decision, right? This is not some French player. It's dream on freaking green. He's really important to them as we've established. So they're not going to have this decision made by any one person. Steph Curry's voice obviously looms huge in all of this and he and draymond have been, you know, have built a really important and solid partnership over years here. So Steph's voice and his opinion in this will matter. Andre Iguodala who's been around throughout this entire dynasty, his voice will matter. All the usual front office people and all the coaching staff and Steve Kerr, but Jordan Poole, as a young guy in this league who just had his breakout season last year and who, as you've noted, is up for a massive extension and is viewed as a critical part of their future. He's not the kind of player who in ordinary times not in all star, not all MBA, he's not usually the kind of player who you would look at and say he's going to be able to make this kind of decision on the behalf of the franchise. But there's a lot that rides on his reaction. You're right. You're absolutely right. They're giving him as much time as I don't even think it's as much time as he needs. I think the organization is kind of decided he's just not going to talk for several days here just to let this whole thing kind of simmer down a little bit before he goes into the hornets nest of a press conference to talk about what happened, especially after the whole world got

"About the incident. Whenever adversity hit this ten years responds, the right way, and this is the ultimate task force. And I think we're going to be able to get through it. Jordan, he's going to work and do what he's going to do. Draymond, he's a veteran. He's been leader on stage for a reason and he got some work to do to get that trust back from us, but I think he's willing to do so. All right, Howard, let's just start here. You know, your take on what happened, how it's evolved and what this means for the warriors. Let me start with this. There's absolutely no minimizing what happened, right? Even if we had never seen the video, the act is the act that we have seen the video and we can see just how violent it was, how scary it was. How aggressive it was, there's no, there's just no minimizing that. And, you know, there's a lot of other things swirling around how the video got out. You know, I know there's this backlash of how it doesn't matter how the video actually kind of does matter how the video got out. Like that's an issue too. It's not the most important issue, but it's an issue. It is especially an issue for the warriors and I think it's probably an issue to a degree for all 30 teams because nobody wants their stuff getting out. And I don't mean about just fights. I mean, whatever, trade secrets, whatever they're working on. Other stuff, you know, and yeah, dust ups in practice, whatever. Nobody wants their video getting out. This has never happened to my knowledge in my 25 years covering the NBA. And. Teams are definitely alarmed about it. The warriors chiefly, but I think everybody is now a little worried about what is vulnerable within their four walls that they believe to be private. But the act is what matters, right? The punches what matters and the effects of it. And the fact is like a week later, Chris, I don't think we really know what the effects are. This is the longest I've ever seen a team or the league wait to announce the disciplinary measure. It's possible they've made a decision and just have not announced it. It's possible that draymond's absence right now is part of it. Like, that's absolutely a possibility. We don't know one way or the other way. He's voluntarily staying home to clear his head and to let the team clear their heads without him around or whether this is part of some agreement with the team. We don't know one way or the other. But this is the longest I've ever seen that a team has not announced a disciplinary action after something so egregious. They can do that because it's preseason. There's no urgency. If this were in the middle of January, they probably would have had to act more swiftly because the season keeps marching on. But they have, they have some time to breathe here before opening night, which is now a week away. I expect that whatever is happening. We'll find out by then. Probably sooner, but the warriors don't, you know, I'm out here right now, right? And I'm not working on that. I'm working on something else, but I've been chatting with people. They do not seem to be in any rush to do anything here. I know that there's a lot of people in public, whether it's people like us and media or whether it's fans, you know, screaming, demanding whatever, justice, whatever they think that is, the warriors, I would just say this, they know draymond green better than any of us, they know their team better than any of us. They know what the balancing act is. And it is a balancing act. And it's always been a balancing act because of draymond the way he's wired. They know what the balancing act is between keeping draymond engaged and active and hopefully channeled in the right direction versus draymond possibly going off the rails. He has nearly derailed them and arguably has derailed him a couple times before, but he's still here because he's also helped him win all those championships. Like those banners are there. There are four of them and draymond green is as critical to them as anybody. And so they have smoothed out the rough edges over time. They have weathered draymond green's various outbursts over time usually verbal and not physical to our knowledge. And they know better than we do, what that line is what that balancing act is with that razor's edge that they're sometimes on is. Yeah, but that line Howard, that line has been, it's been crossed. It has been leaped over. Like, I don't want to hear from NBA executives, coaches about stuff like this happens in practice all the time. Altercations happen all the time. Scuffles happen all the time. Haymakers to your teammates do not happen all the time. They don't. I'm sorry. Not all the time, but I guarantee you they've happened. Okay, but you know what? When they do happen, suspensions come. You remember what was it, 2017, Nicole and mirotic when Bobby portis slugged him at bull's practice, mirotic was going at him and portis was quick to point out on social media that he was defending himself in that situation. But he got what 8 games for that. And that wasn't caught on camera. That just something that happened at practice and the bulls felt it significant enough to level an 8 game suspension at this guy. So I just don't believe stuff like that happens. How many games did Michael Jordan get for slugging Steve Kerr back in the day? I think zero? How many games did Shaka Kobe get for their fight that we didn't learn about until years later? Kobe, though, we would have found out. But we also would hear about these things. That would have been just a complete beating right there. Right, but the point is that in a prior era before social media before all these cameras in their gyms that now capture everything and that can now be, you know, we don't know how that video got out. We don't know what chain of. Actions happened that it got into somebody's hands who didn't mind making a buck off of it. I doubt that it was anybody who works for the warriors. It makes no sense at all that anybody who works for the words. It makes more sense that somebody showed it to somebody who shouldn't have and then that person showed it to somebody and in this day and age with the technology, being the way it is. It's so easy to copy and send on stuff. That wasn't the case in prior decades. And so if a punch like this happened in practice, and again, I guarantee you it did. It didn't get out because there was no means for it to get out. And so it's not that this is unprecedented. It's just that the circumstances and our ability to see it are unprecedented and had the video not gotten out. You and I would be sitting here talking about, well, you know, something happened. We don't know exactly what, but draymond green apparently punched. We wouldn't know. We would be talking about this in the abstract and the team would probably be dealing with dealing with it in a way that yeah, but here's why Howard they now can't deal with it in that way because it is out. It's out and not just because it's out for public consumption. It's out for internal consumption too. Like you watch that video and draymond saunters up to pool, pour on atoms, like right Adams, I made this analogy on Twitter. It was like the boxing referee that knows if he just stepped in a second earlier, he might have stopped something really bad. Run Adams needs to be protected at all costs and I'm so glad that he was not in harm's way and that nobody tumbled into him that nothing else happened. Ron Adams must be must be saved. Women like Pedro Martinez and Don Zimmer from back in the day when people don't know that reference, you can Google that.

"Framework is set, the seeds are there for this to be an ugly race to the bottom for a whole bunch of teams. Now it's going to be an ugly race at the bottom. I'm just curious to see which teams join that race in like month two or month three of the regular season. I mean, San Antonio is already in that race. Utah is already in that race. If there's an injury in Houston early on, do they offload aragorn and join that race? Does Indiana come up with a trade that moves buddy heel to miles Turner off the roster in exchange for a Russell Westbrook or a player they don't want and do they join that race? Which was probably going to happen anyway, by the way. Web and yum are no web and Yama, the idea of Indiana trading off its last two veterans in a Westbrook deal or whatever. I think that was possibly going to happen anyway. So this is where it gets sticky, right? We'll start conflating things that were maybe going to happen anyway with, oh, they joined the tanking room. I mean, that's really the only one, though. That's the one. Like Indiana moving those guys. I think Houston before it became web and Yama fever. Like they went to the season hoping they could win more games. It's not going to be a playoff team, but can they get to 25, 30 wins, you know, this season more from Jalen green, something out of jabari Smith, out prince and there's got a lot of young pieces there that they can take a step forward. Like, they're the one. Utah traded everybody. So and they'll continue to trade everybody. My Conley's the clock's ticking on him. Even if they don't, they can't defend anybody anymore, so they're going to be really bad. So I'm just curious to see how many teams by all star break are in this race. Are there four teams competing for those last three spots where your odds are the very best? All right, so listen, this is an interesting part as I'm looking at the teams that could potentially join the tanking race, right? You mentioned the spurs and the jazz, they already made their decision, right? The jazz jettisoned Donovan Mitchell Rudy Gobert, they're gonna be bad intentionally. And for reasons that have nothing that could have come about without wembanyama, right? They had reached, they did hit a wall. They weren't going any further with this group. It was time to hit the reset button. But anyway, Utah and San Antonio and San Antonio, of course, offloaded Dijon Murray. So those two teams, we know what their trajectory is. We know what their intent is this season. No question. Houston is going to be bad regardless it's only a question of degree. Oklahoma is going to be bad regardless. Only question of degree. You mentioned Indiana, they can easily jettison a couple vets and be in there. But here's the interesting thing. The magic have not made the playoffs in a thousand years. And have added palaban Caro is the top pick of the last draft. I don't think the magic are going to be very good anyway. I don't think they're a play in team anyway and certainly they're a team that if they're not going to make the plane anyway, they can, you know, start messing around down the stretch to be ultra bad. But they're a front office has now been in their seats for what, three, four years, and don't have a lot to show for it. You know, there could be pressure there from ownership to actually show something for it and not be historically bad again. The pistons have had a couple of good drafts and now actually traded for a veteran in boya and Baghdad as if they're trying to win now. The pistons want to show progress with their young core. The Sacramento Kings have showed us the last couple of years. Though they failed at it, they keep trying to make even the play in because the kings want to end their historic playoff drought that's now at 16 years. The Washington Wizards signed Bradley Beal to another massive extension, they want to make it. And again, that doesn't mean they can't blow it up midstream, but, you know, the Knicks, the Knicks don't want to bottom out. They're another one of these teams that could be in the lottery again as a lower lottery team not a high lottery team, but they're not a team that's going to suddenly change direction, trade everybody and go for web and Yama. The trailblazers are patching it together around Damien Lillard as he got healthy again and Gary Payton junior and Jeremy grant. They're not trying to do it. So like a lot of the teams that we would look at normally and say, oh, they should just pull the plug and go for it. Our teams that actually have incentive to try to win either to keep their owners happy to keep their stars happy or just because they're kind of committed to being mediocre like the Knicks. Yeah, I mean, I get that. I just think, again, mid season, if there's an injury or two, and it seems like, you know, the teams that you pointed out that went for the ten seed last year are not going to be doing that this year. If they can find a way to get into that bottom three or even closer to that bottom three, they're going to do it just because this kit is transformational. And if you are a small market team and you have the chance to add this guy for the equivalent of like 8 years really because everybody signs that second contract, you're going to do whatever you have to do to go and get him. So Jeremy and I will talk about that. More about when but yeah I'm a later in the show.

The draymond green fiasco has had a couple of twists and turns over the last week. It was reported. Early last week, that draymond got into an altercation with Jordan Poole. It was later revealed he punched Jordan Poole, settled down for like a day, and then the video of the altercation leaked to TMZ. And that could not possibly have gone worse for draymond green. It showed draymond walking over to Jordan Poole, Jordan Poole shoving draymond green, though not didn't really move him. He's got like he's down like 40 pounds on draymond to 30 pounds on draymond. And then draymond just winding up and throwing and landing a huge right hand to the face of Jordan Poole. Here's draymond green, Steve Kerr, and kevon Looney talking

Could be the best duo ever. I don't see how you can beat that. Here they are. Chris mannix and Howard back. And we are back crossover NBA podcast Chris mannix and Howard Beck I am coming to you. From Boston, Massachusetts, I finally made it home after a couple of weeks of doing a little boxing and basketball touring of the country. Beck, you are in the Bay Area. Your home away from home or home region, I guess, right? You're a Bay Area native, correct? That is correct. You are right. San Jose native, proudly, love being back here, take every excuse I can to get back here. But no, working on working on a feature that is warriors related is not draymond green or Jordan pool related. It is not TMZ related. It is not video leakage related. I just happen to be here on a previously arranged trip to work on a warrior's preseason feature. That is nevertheless something I'm very happy about and excited to put together and put out there in the world, but no, it is not related to the controversy du jour, so. All right, I want to get into that, I also want to get into the clippers who look absolutely loaded right now in the pre season. I want to get into rob polanka, getting a vote of confidence.

And we're going to take a look back at the Victor Wen by Yama experience last week in Las Vegas. But one thing I wanted to hit you on, like, every NBA executive is salivating over Victor wemba Yama. And I was tweeting some stuff that I was being told. I know other reporters tweeting stuff about the tanking and how early it's going to happen this year. We got to the ears of Adam silver when he was an Abu Dhabi and he gave kind of an awkward answer to it. Like I really hope my team's play hard when, you know, I think we both know that if teams have a chance to do whatever they have to do to solidify a bottom three spot, they're going to do it this year. But like are we about to see after the all star break a historic level of tanking? Do you think it could get to an embarrassing level? I mean, we've seen close to embarrassing levels. I mean, like, what Oklahoma City did a couple of years ago where they just sat Al Horford who was healthy. Gilda sha Alexander probably could have kept playing. They sat, Lou dort, and they sat Lou dort, all the weird ways he was explaining to me by someone Oklahoma City was like, Lou dort has to get ready for the Canadian national team or something like that. It was just like, we've seen some brazen tanking in recent years, but are we about to see it get taken to the next level? So it's interesting because I think the NBA ran kind of a modest victory lap Chris over the last couple of years in an earned one where they did two things to try to stem tanking. And this was mostly in the wake of the sixers, the process, right? That was an embarrassment for the league. Adam silver was appalled and embarrassed and very uncomfortable with all the discussions surrounding the sixers. And they weren't the only ones during that time, of course, by the way, they were just the only ones with a multiyear plan to be as bad as possible as long as possible and get as many high picks as possible. But plenty of other teams were tanking for the Wiggins draft, which now seems quaint in retrospect. And for various other drafts, like it's always been the case, but the MBA did two things. They re shifted the lottery odds, which went into effect. I think the Zion draft was the first one. A few years back, and then of course they introduced the midseason tournament coming out of the bubble because in the mid season. The play in tournament, I still hate the idea of the midseason tournament, but that's coming soon eventually. That's a whole other thing. The play in tournament happened to the bubble. Out of more of circumstance, they liked the results. They created a version of it for the regular season. They've had it for the last two years. It's now a permanent part of the NBA where 7 through ten in each conference participate in the play in. And that is incentivized teams not to tank. It's incentivized teams to, if you're in the 11 or 12 range, but have a chance to get to ten and be in the play in, which then gives you a chance to be in the playoffs, it has incentivized teams to still compete in March and April and go for it. And we've seen it. Like that wasn't just theory. It was just theory beforehand, but the last two years have shown that their hunch was right. There's now incentive if you're, you know, somewhere within range of 6, the last guaranteed playoff spot, you tried everything you can in the late part of the season to get 6th instead of 7th so that you're not in the play in. And if you're in that 7 through ten range, you're all incentivized to try to get to 6 if you can. And if you're anywhere in shouting range of ten, you're incentivized. So there's incentives all throughout and of course, we know the top four have home court advantage. There are incentives all throughout and it has done a great job in making teams actually give a crap about March and April games. All but the last two or three teams in each conference who are out of it by then. But what's gonna happen now, Chris, what I would fear, what the league I think should be rightfully fearing right now is that wembanyama and the combination of web and Yama and scoot Henderson, who in any other draft and the other recent draft would have probably been number one. It means that teams aren't saying, well, I'm going all out to suck just for a 14% chance, which is what you have if you have one of the three worst records. They all have equal 14% chance of number one pick. Now it's, well, those three spots have a 23 27% chance of being the first or second pick. So now the idea is, well, you know, I'm gonna go all out to get wet but now if I can and if I don't get them because the lottery balls don't fall my way, well they're still a pretty good chance I'm number two and I get scoot Henderson who could anchor my team and be a star of my team for the next ten years. So this is where it gets interesting. It's two players not just one. I'm not saying they're equal, but it is a player that, you know, everybody would be gladly have fall to them. And when ban Yama, the way teams are talking about him in these historic terms, best prospect since LeBron, best prospect in recent memory, some people, you know, there was the one report somebody said, you know, that somebody had said it was the best prospect ever. That's, come on, let's slow down just a little bit. But certainly one of the greatest prospects of the last 20, 30 years. And that's gonna make people take more chances and I'll just finish on this note, which is, okay, when you're one of the three worst teams under the current lottery odds that you all have an equal 14% chance. So there's no incentive to be the worst. There's no center to be the 30th team. If you're 29th or 28th, you get the same odds as the 30th team. But it goes from 14% chance to win the number one pick to 12 and a half percent if you're the fourth worst team. To ten and a half percent if you're the 5th worst to 9% if you're the 6th words. So all the way through 6, there's a, you know, if you got at least a one in ten shot, you might be incentivized to go try to avoid the play in now. And avoid the playoffs to be one of the bottom 6 or bottom 7. I mean, this could go the other direction this time and we won't know. Until we get there and we'll know soon enough anyway, because early in the season, if teams start cashing out early, the first sign of stumbling and they start trading off veterans to the top contenders and pull the plug. Well, no. So I don't want to predict there's going to be like a tank a thon to end all tank a thons as I'm looking at the site tank

"Toward the end of the first round, a lot of people thought, all right, you know what? You take a flyer in this guy, maybe he'll be a guy who comes off the bench, makes him threes for the second unit. Now again, he's been fortunate to some degree because clay was hurt that he got an opportunity and it's all about that, right? It's all about those opportunities. He got it and he took advantage of it and now I'll tell you what, you look at maxi, you look at Jordan Poole and then we're gonna go on to the next guy, probably in a few minutes, Jalen Brunson. I mean, those are three dudes that you just didn't see coming. And they're all different. They all do different things, but Jordan Poole has given Golden State another dimension.

No, no, it's Kevin fulls not the answer there. I kept in duly. 28, you're right. He was 28th. The first round 28th pick. Now, my question, you know, when clay, you know, he was there without clay and he flourished and with question was when clay goes back and he has to sit down and have a minute to do some of that. Will he adapt and apparently, you know, he has now and then he got a chance to come out in the plans to start again. He's going to have to go back to that role, maybe in the next game. This isn't going to forget about this death squad thing. Steph is not coming off the bench anymore. Now, do you remember this though? We had to look controversy when I think it was 82 83. When Larry got hit by Harvey's catchings and he and he had to wear the mask and he came off the bench on his way back and it seemed to be working and Fitch kept it going longer than most fans thought was appropriate.

My screen couple sciences. But since they're not built in other areas. I got into academic were accidentally because initially my work was in southern africa was the uk government administrative agency. Developments was then then. I worked full about twelve years with indigenous groups in south america. I was a bit of a surprise to me to move from africa to south america. But i found working amongst onto gatherers. You would actually active helpful people. But trying to develop held them develop in agriculture as they had become on land they traditionally roamed all series of The south america in this case the country paraguay the hunter gatherer. People have a different sort of lifestyle. They still do but they increasing had to settle because of pressures from the white society to help help them to develop a bible. couch Themselves agriculture cheap food Jobs in it means income communities index. Sports too so they were big up cancelled. They grew cotton. And i'm thinking so so what but Often twelve fourteen years. It was time to come back to the uk and interact with nomex because it seemed to be a gap in my training from signs after sciences possessions nazis in into economics. I thought i need to know more about this. So i took it posted agriculture. That can make some then. I stayed on university to do a phd and the rest has been work on. Different facets of agricultural developed many many parts of the world. So i've done lots of different things. I got accidentally but i will save on myself doing a whole range of things. I didn't expect to do because academics normally go deep into titular subject area. The high donald interesting things in looks interesting places and so i love breadth more breath and debt. Shall we say Academics and only deep Bog you've for a problem suits acute need and you know nutrition in different parts of the world. So you need more multidisciplinary approaches to as opposed to just looking at the nutrition looking at just to the growing of crops. Well this is ongoing battle is it's true. In many areas. People were within their anticipated where they feel comfortable. And it's difficult for individuals Bread beyond the era of coal competence into other things. Actually for me get into getting into nutrition. It is a return to what i did it. Rigidly i in my agriculture sciences. Specifically i did a bit of nutrition. In a sense of come back to where i began But the circle of activities has taken me through natural resources management issues to do with wars edible caterpillars citrus. Coffee in a whole range of things you know have dabbled in bits. It's been my privilege things a little bit. Unusual people do span so many disciplines and when when we talk agriculture on the nutrition specifically overly is these disciplines. Haven't been willing to create. Is the reason for my work. Was six years in south asia. Looking at agriculture nutrition is trying to bridge the disciplinary gaps in showed how agriculture is not just jobs. Not just sort of production can be exported but in logically when you think about it. This is a source of people's food. Ism well but it's more complicated when you think of fondness Actually never they don't sell their products linked markets in markets. What do they buy while a by. What's available what they can afford. And so you're needed into markets. But you're going to logistics how. How high quality foods can get to markets graphic nafta by it. And what sort of things do they die. And do they buy the food. That's really important for their nutrition. Well then you're you're a policy adequacy of don and you find you strayed from agriculture through econ into nutrition and nutritional science can be brought together and it must be gone but a lot of work in this area is that it's difficult to cross state disciplinary. Barry is but we must do so and it because it takes you into policies and politics. What are the policy that can be. The governments can adopt to in order to encourage foods but also economics delivered good. Quality fits to markets. And help you get into education. Education performance Things but education consumers. So they bind the right foods and you're dealing with a of disciplinary air is that it's difficult to manage but you do need to bring the paper with different skills together absolutely. Nothing is really interesting that now that you've retired your academic duties. It will working with a new garage in mexico to look at this. Might guess is that the organization does take this melting disciplinary approach as beginning to ask senate has been plant breeding open is. That's what label set up to do. That's what they've been provided with money. If they do their job and other people do the job you mind your business you go into the business.

Within organization's particular areas looking around the international ultra area that some Cereal summit will reach in tubas looking dry land. Some of the book tropical areas. Some that do on food policy in nutrition but it is difficult realities. It's difficult across different areas because very often organizations are competing for different sets of funding.

critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I

of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same
"Misspeaking, please. Tell me is is five eight five nine under size for cornerback. Or is that just about right because I hate to say undersides because it's about the players will be about the size of the weight, or whatever, I guess, it's. Is it? I mean because you've got I feel like so much out of your Billy Wright you played you play like a guy that was so much tolerant so much bigger. I think is all predicated on the style of football being played. Now by me saying that this is what I'm trying to say if I cost routers, the office is always chasing offense. Now, a lot of people may not be paying attention to this. But because of the rules of the game becoming more aerial look at the height but receivers they're going down. You know, you see Julian adamant, he's Ditto Brandon couth Ditto. Whereas before they will go of all thieves in the winning is that it would've defense is going to do like how wrong, you know, if the robbers are getting it a fast car, guess what do the cops guy get into fans car? So if the office go onto toll receivers, the defense got to go to visit bags so at the time when I came through it was era where you know, receivers were like six more. One down where you most adulting receivers. And also it made me legitimate was a sack that not only was my behind was was a where should be. Even time lot. They tell lots of great bet tie was like five eleven and the whip made me stand out was my vertical by vertical is right. Forty inches about all span when I stick my arms out from side to side. The scout said that my measurement was dad of a six foot quarter. Would I go to jail receiver? If a cyclical if front of the Maastricht idea to Twitter five like twenty two thousand to come. But the guy on the counted them seventeen you know, I'm like a couple of my lock out that I locked about ways. But did I have speed and creek was lateral movement? So again, using it ten items if there was ten items discounts were looking for they probably see Tyrone guy. Lease eight nine of what we're looking for in a corner. Huge heart. I mean, I don't think I've ever seen every almost every patriot game. I don't think I've ever seen you mail it watch a game. Whether it's baseball or football, or whatever basketball, you see somebody, you know, they're not giving their best. I don't think I ever ever seen. You take a playoff? You are always at one hundred percent always giving everything you had. And I and I know because we're speaking it sounds maybe like I'm buttering up or I'm patronizing. I honest to God, I have never seen you take a playoff. You. Always you. Always you always busted your ass.
