"George greyman. Yeah. Yeah, just a lot of all time greats. Just getting swept under the rug. Bro, I signed so I'm watching the TNT Tuesday the other night. And they're like, how is Kyrie Irving? Adam lefkoe is like, you know, I see every NBA player is like, why is Kyrie Irving not in the top 75? And then my guy Dwyane Wade is like taking a shot at the media and he's like, people who played against Kyrie, they know how good he is, but the people who vote on these lists. So let me just say something, okay? Number one, you had former players who voted on the top 75 list. Number two, if we want to take George Mike and off, let's take George Mike and off. Let's have a conversation about everyone who was on the top 50 that remained on that list and I think it was kind of, hey, these guys are staying on the list. We can't take anyone off. 'cause that's a real problem. But anyway, this is a long winded me winded way of me saying I actually don't think that many players could average 30 on league average effective field goal percentage. If it was like it's hard. Doing it more every year. It's very hard. I think it's very few. Who's the worst player? I think I could do it is like Trae Young, I think. And that's not because he's a bad player. It's 'cause I think there's 6 or 7 guys who could do it. Well, okay, so the player I picked is worse, but is a great player. And the point is that there are no bats. For me. For me it was either Trey or Jayson Tatum where my two options. Okay, so I would counter that and I was going to say this before you even said Tatum. And I know you're kidding. I think Trey could average, I honestly think Trey could average 30..

"He's maybe the greatest coach in American professional sports. He's in the top, he's on the Mount Rushmore. He's on the mountain. Yes. 100%. So every video that was coming out of that last game, whether it was the player's mobbing him on the court, giving him the water bottle shower in the locker room. I'm a weird roundabout point. I'm going to make, but I was with some people Friday night who are also NBA writers, people who used to be in B riders or talk about James Harden and which is weird. Never talk about basketball and my social life, but gonna come up and it's getting pretty heated and I was just like, I don't know, I don't know if this is where I'm getting older, but like my takes are just getting more and more boomer as every day passes, but I was just like, yeah, I just love I just don't I couldn't get past how it felt like harden. It's one thing to have a bad game like he did in that 6% game. But there are times where it just didn't even look like he wanted to compete. And it was like, you know, like you looked at KD and MB jawing, you looked at the way Kyrie was following around Hardin in dead balls. Getting ready to play defense on him. I just have so much respect for people who have respect for competition. Not even about the result, but just, you know, do you care? Are you putting it in your best? I feel like Greg Popovich, every player he's had is just like always wanted to compete hard for him, you know? And you saw the way that this first team isn't good, but they were celebrating and how emotional they were and the connection he still has with those guys, even though he's not competing for titles right now. It's like, that's just like the beauty of team sports. You know what I mean? It's like you're willing to what you're willing to do to sacrifice for the greater good. And I feel like he always always always is able to just bring that out in his teams and in his players and it's always going to be hard to say who are the best coaches because pops the first person to say, I don't win because I win because it's him Duncan, right? You know, he's the first coach to kind of talk about, hey, you can't win without great players, but just what he's able to bring out of his teams, that competitive spirit he's able to bring out of players. That's just so cool, man. It's what makes me it's what makes this work great. It really is. So it's like, first of all, every great coach, every coach that will even be discussing in this conversation is in the conversation because they coached a Pantheon level talent. It's like, come on, it's just what it is. So there's no, oh, what would he be without Tim Duncan? There's none of that. What would Pat Riley be without Magic Johnson? What his career ever even gotten off the ground..
"popovich" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"No, no, no. So we got an email from Vlad. And it's great because it hits on something that I'm almost not almost. I am embarrassed that we didn't talk about Greg Popovich last week. But this email kind of does it justice and will happen to a discussion now. So Vlad from Australia writes hay open floor. Today my beloved Utah Jazz were defeated in a close game against the spurs, making Gregg Popovich, the coach with the most wins of all time. Although on the surface, the answer may seem obvious. Does this make him the best NBA coach ever? Even though he now has the most wins, other coaches seem to have better resumes. For instance, Phil Jackson's 6 championships with the bulls in a single decade not to mention the 5 that he later got with the Lakers. Seemingly overshadows this. Or even coaches like Steve Kerr and Eric spoelstra, who, although one less championships than papovic, managed to revolutionize the game with their unique playing styles. Something that Popovich isn't particularly known for would love to hear your opinion on the matter and please keep the awesome pods coming. Thank you so much for this email. I guess I'll just start by saying. So okay. So I wanted to kind of frame this discussion with you I asked you to rank your three best coaches ever, Rohan. To me and I totally did that, by the way. Good. We're going to get into that in a second. To me, Popovich was the greatest NBA coach at the step on my ranking, but to me he was the greatest NBA coach before he passed on Nelson for most events. I think he's also probably the most influential coach in the NBA. Over the lifespan of when he since he became head coach of the San Antonio spirit is 27 years ago. And you look at that and it's like, Steve Kerr was just mentioned this email as someone who revolution, I helped revolutionize the game. And it's like, not really. There's no disrespect to that. I love the email, but all these guys, Steve Kerr, you have coach bud and Milwaukee and Monte Williams coaching in the finals last year. Both kind of come from pop's tree. Steve Kerr played for pop. Email docu right now in Boston, the hottest team in the NBA. One of comes from pop. Just like the coaching tree is really, to say nothing of anything that has to do with pop being his ability to develop talent to find talent to maximize the international game to change from being this defensive behemoth at the beginning of the Tim Duncan era to being this graceful, offensive show by 2013, 2014. It's like, so I'm not really not being eloquent in describing how much I mean, he's one of the greatest coaches..

'Woke' Media Fails to Ask NBA Coach About China
"Com. Josh cross how are you and NBA fan? Somewhat. I mean, I kind of lost interest in the NBA when wizards don't make the playoffs at all. But yeah, I follow the NBA. I like basketball. Say you know, Popovich is allegedly this brilliant guy. He's very good basketball coach, but yesterday, Gruden gets fired from misogynistic homophobic emails and Popovich compares Columbus to Hitler and doesn't get asked a question about the genocide in China and the Uyghurs in his complicity in that. What's wrong with the NBA sports media? Well, not just the sports media, it's the leadership of the NBA, which I think they've suffered the most of all the four sports leagues because they got the most political, all the leaks of some extent have gotten more political than they once were, but the NBA really just like, I remember during the bubble season they put Black Lives Matter on the court. They let players offer their political takes on things left and right. And that's not a great place to be. We want one of the top roles of building a good team and effective team is that you're not divided by politics. You're one team and you don't talk about these issues that have nothing to do with the MBA. Popovich has a long history of offering his political takes. This becomes a no surprise to me that he says something like that. Well, I don't mind is giving his hot political takes, but if he's gonna give it take on Hitler, genocide, slavery in Columbus, somebody ought to ask him about the Uighurs and the ongoing genocide in China from which he profits yes and so much of sorry, someone should ask the silver and someone should ask a lot of the players who play in China, you know, what they think about that. Not so much more relevant, timely issue for the NBA, at least, but you're right, that there's sort of a double standard and you don't get the type of scrutiny. You're going to open everything up to politics. You might as well should be talking about issues that directly affect the NBA and the bottom line. And if you're going to hijack if you're going to hijack a basketball press conference to rant about Hitler in Columbus, you're going to get asked to China question if you have a real
San Antonio Spurs Gregg Popovich Rambles About Columbus Day
"One happy Columbus day No it's not indigenous Americans They it's Columbus day Columbus what do we know about Columbus Gregg Popovich is a nut job and a basketball coach and not a very good one For the Antonio spurs San Antonio at a press conference on Friday on Christopher Columbus is a particularly in football and basketball There are no nothings seem to pretend that they know everything Here he is hat tip rumble cut to go I think the proclamation was obviously appropriate needed and all those sorts of things but I'm a little confused about our city And why it's indigenous people's day slash Columbus day Columbus I mean he initiated a new world genocide that's what he did And beginning with him and what he said in motion what followed that the annihilation of every indigenous person and Hispaniola which was Haiti and the Dominican Republic today That's what he did He took slaves he mutilated He murdered And we're going to say slash in honoring well I got to give the San Antonio independent school district a little bit of credit because at least they added indigenous peoples along with it And that's a step in the right direction But what the hell is Alamo heights thinking It's Columbus day That's why they're off On Monday
Betting Summer Hoops
"Now to welcome in a somewhat regular guest here on the behind the podcast. A friend of mine. Brian win horse. Who is also in las vegas and we have yet to connect though brian how are you. I'm getting up at like five thirty on some of these days and teeing off by seven to try to finish before gets it gets ridiculous but i'm really enjoying it to be beat the heat. It is pretty ridiculous. I mean. I know it's hot in the summer but it's gotten out of hand a couple of times one seventeen the other day Tell you what. I bet you saw. Popovich getting up at five thirty losing some sleep perhaps because team. Usa not looking good right now and we know these sort of narrative with the international play is that they're more if more continuity usa is going to get everyone's best shot but this is this is really unexpected here. Oh and two out of the gates. There's another game coming up tonight. Eighteen and a half their lane to argentina. I liked them in the first half minus ten and a half but just in general is their level of concern here for a team. That's minus four hundred win the gold. Yeah by the way one of the things about tonight's game. I don't know how who's going to play for the us. They don't have a huge selection of wires only got nine of their Of their national team players because middleton holiday inn booker are in the final so they they've got some some other young guys there but it's considering it's back to back and not only. Is it back to back but yesterday's game was a five o'clock start and this today's game three o'clock local. I'm not sure what you're going to see from the us that game but argentina's in the same boat and Their in two so far so You know. I think there's two ways to look at this on one hand The teams that. They're playing her so much more talented than the teams that they were playing. Even five to seven years ago You know i. I mean i made a deal of this to you. Know they beat. Nigeria nine years ago when olympics by eighty three and five years ago by forty three but the team. They beat five years ago. Didn't have seven. Nba players on right and not only that but one of their best players Okafor jalil okafor didn't even play against the americans. He came back and played against the argentinians. On tuesday and fifteen points so they didn't even face a full scale nigeria teams. You can believe that it's not comparable but the other side of that is. The us team is loaded. You know two years ago. I went to china with team. Usa and they finished seventh in the world cup. And you know really was their worst finish in you know you know since two thousand four athens games which they still won bronze in but their worst finish over in the world cup and that team it. Just frankly wasn't very good. There was only one or two players in the whole roster would ever even been all stars and so while you can look at some things and see some cracks. That was not a representative team. I know that. Lebron and steph curry and anthony davis aren't playing but this is representative team. This team is loaded like a ten of the players. I think are were all stars in the last year and Almost everybody rotation was either all. Nba this year or should have been all nba. like durant. didn't naked 'cause injuries but trust me he's all nba player right so Having said that you see that much talent they should struggle and still win.

He'll jump through the tackles of red and green law and pick up the Arizona first down inside the 49 or 40 Yard line.

Hopkins like they're just was he lets that double team identify and then he throws the swing round. He's a terrific player.

Brooklyn Nets hire Hall of Famer Steve Nash as head coach
"Welcome to the low post podcast where the plan was to talk hilariously awful game sevens and DEFCON. In Milwaukee with the one and only Kevin Arnovitz but Mr Kevin Arnovitz about five minutes ago news dropped from the news gods on Mount Olympus of Basketball Steve Nash Steve Freaking, Nash, two time. NBA Mvp. The point God of the seven seconds less Phoenix Suns will become the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. This is I think the first one since Brad, Stevens to Boston were like the news came although that came via a press release the celtics that one themselves where the news came like an earthquake with absolutely no warning no rumors know anything all the rumors moghreb Popovich a note, Steve Nash. So Steve Nash Has Minimal coaching experiences consulted team Canada. I'm not sure again this just happened I haven't looked up his exact role, a team Canada he was a consultant with the Golden State, warriors GM. You might have been the GM GM Canada. You're right. And I think clearly relevant in his consultation with the Golden State. Warriors developed a close relationship with Kevin Durant and I and they worked together in the off season a lot on various aspects of Katie's game in I interviewed. Steve Two years ago. About Kevin I wrote a big piece in the two thousand eighteen finals or so anti climactic that my big final piece was not about the finals at all it was about like what is Kevin Durant WanNa be as a basketball player like what is Kevin Durant? You Know Kevin Durant and his entire career has been. You could argue who was the quote best player on the team with the warriors not with the thunder he was clearly the best player on the thunder team but was never the lead ball handler of his team. So I wrote this sort of like, what is Kevin Durant and Steve Talk to me in depth about their relationship and about how after the warriors won the first title he and Kevin would talk about how Kevin did not fill fulfilled by. Winning that title in the way that he expected that it did not give him the fulfillment that he expected all this. So I, think that's obviously A big reason why Kevin by Steve Nash is now the coach of the nets. I mean the nets have lots of stuff to not figure out they have to superstars coming back carousel avert head. As you know like a superstar scoring run I guess in the bubble they gotTA figure out fits those guys I mean, what's your? What's this just happened? What do you think what's happening? So, one way to look at this is what is the head coach's role in two thousand and twenty, twenty one and to a great extent. Especially when you have talent like durant irving, you're in the talent management business, you're in the business of men managing relationships, empowering players the right way. Their XS and os no. By the way if there's anybody who's the personification of modern basketball, it's this guy or like everything you and I talk about every single time I'm on can in some ways be traced back to that son's team. So you're talking about a guy with an enormous. Basketball IQ and by all accounts and emotional IQ as well. So. So, that that is the case sport that that look that is the primary responsibility of the New Jersey Nets. Can you listen to me Brooklyn Nets had could they're
San Antonio Spurs fail to reach playoffs for first time since 1997
"Head coach Gregg Popovich was in no mood to reminisce about the previous 22 n BA seasons yesterday after missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997 usually salty pop said, looking at the past doesn't do much good. He was focused on the present proud that his team gave itself a chance to keep that streak going. So let's do the reminiscing for him 22 consecutive trips to the playoffs ties for the longest such streak in you. NBA history.

Orlando Magic's Jonathan Isaac explains why he didn't take knee or wear Black Lives Matter shirt Friday
"We had an incredible opening weekend of games name a star level player that player delivered at least once if not twice over the first three or four nights of the NBA's restart here in Orlando, we had crazy comeback wins. By the Houston Rockets, we had a dominant performance by. Jaanus over some little pesky pip squeak team from New England I forget who they might be. We got Marcus smart got fined for trying to work the officials. We've got storylines upon story lines. The clippers bounce back from their loss to the Lakers. Looking excellent and just throttling the New Orleans Pelicans. There's so many different directions that we can go Michael that I decided. Here's what we're GONNA do opening weekend heaters we're GONNA have just open ended questions are we're going to ping pong back and forth you give me your answers I'm going to give you my answers to these questions and try to cover as much ground as possible before we get there though I do want to double back quickly on the national anthem demonstrations that we touched on last episode, we got so many thoughtful emails from various members of the open floor globe on this subject, but I think there was a major development after we spoke on Friday. and. That involve Jonathan Isaac Meyers. Leonard Gregg Popovich Becky Hammon and one of the NBA referees all deciding to not kneel to not really participate in what had been in unified demonstration on Thursday. All of those people who chose to stand were obviously doing it on principle and they were doing it knowing there was going to be a lot of attention their direction. Now, if you look at Popovich amend the referee essentially, they were trying to just say, Hey, I support the the Social Justice Movement it's it's a private or personal decision for the referee said look I it's important to me to stand Meyers Leonard made a similar comment. Essentially. Saying that his brothers military service in the in the military service of close people in his life led him to WanNa stand to salute the flag. But within Isaac was a slightly different case and he actually used this entire demonstration opportunity to almost have a one man demonstration of his own. In his belief, the idea of the black lives matters movement quote unquote doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. He also said that you know we shouldn't be necessarily judging things solely based on skin color that we should be trying to live a life basically you know in God's mold and try to live up to his standard, and that Jesus Christ was his personal savior and and that he wanted everyone to focus on that. Aspect of of living rather than the particular issue that was being brought forward with the black lives matter movement by the players he didn't really get any major pushback. Within the NBA Community people respected his right to make a stand. He actually not only did he stand during the national anthem? He didn't wear a black lives matter t shirt which many people notice because he was essentially the only player not to do that his whole personal story Michael took a crazy twist over the weekend and sad twist when he wound up tearing his ACL injury that's going to end his time here in Orlando obviously but also could cost him all of next season. So now talk about a whirlwind seventy, two hours for player who generated millions of us with his comments about the protests. I'm curious. Let's start with Jonathan Isaac. What did you make of his decision? After we've seen things settle in the last couple of days You know maybe it doesn't seem quite as Eye Opening as it did at that moment, but I'll admit I was I was surprised to see given the buy in from everybody on opening night. Right, I mean I just WanNa Start and say that it it really really is a bummer to see anyone get injured but particularly is ICK who was already on restriction he was already playing with a humongous brace on his leg from a previous injury that cost him a majority of this regular season before it was suspended. So I just I feel for him greatly. I I think generally speaking. The coverage of who stands in who sits I mean we talked about this heading in anticipated it I. Think I think the coverage is generally besides the point and it doesn't really get the point I feel like people are using. This as an opportunity to shame those who are standing in a little bit I mean Meyers Leonard. said, he couldn't sleep before he made the decision to stand and that's just like not. The whole focus or the point here right like. You can obviously Support Black lives and also stand for the national anthem. It is a symbolic gesture that is what it is in the case of Isaac. I really had a difficult time understanding even what his message was until you interpreted it the way that you did I mean I watched the clip of Him Multiple Times survey there I'm GonNa just GonNa read what he said I and then we can use that as a jumping off point because I don't WanNa torture what he said earlier and I might have done that. So sorry for that. He says quote absolutely I believe that black lives matter kneeling while wearing a black lives matter t shirt doesn't go hand in hand with supporting black lives. I. Don't think kneeling or putting on a T. shirt for me personally is the answer i. Feel like for me, black lives are supported through the Gospel. All lives are supported through the Gospel. We all have things that we do wrong. Sometimes, it gets into a place of pointing fingers. We all fall short of God's glory whoever will humble themselves and seek God and repent of their sins. We can see our mistakes and people's mistakes and evil in a different light. Racism isn't the only thing that flags our society, our nation and our world, and he basically said he wanted this conversation to get out of the realm of skin color because the answer to all of our problems in everything that goes on in our world is Jesus. So. when I watched the clip. I'll I'll be honest. I was a little confused where he was going to after typing it all out trying to marinate on what he was saying I think he essentially wanted to have a demonstration on behalf of his religious beliefs and that this was an opportunity for him to say look you know focusing only on one particular group I. Guess in his view, the black lives matter group and you know everybody wearing a t-shirt doesn't necessarily achieve the wider goal which would be presumably healthy living. You know honest living you know Living which to him as a higher priority I think that's where he was going with his statements.

Unjust Systems of Power are Solvable
"Were excited to share with you. A new season of conversations with leaders and change makers about how to solve the world's biggest problems. This is an extraordinary moment. We're living through global pandemic, and in the United. States were experiencing the most powerful protest movement of my lifetime against police, brutality and racial injustice. It's a time of great possibility. Our Society seems to be open to the kinds of moral and social transformations that were much harder to imagine before the virus, and before the killing of George. Floyd! For this are second season I'll be joined again by by Pushkin. co-founder Malcolm well and journalist and friend and Applebaum a Pulitzer Prize winning historian and staff writer at the Atlantic. To start this season, we're focusing on two problems racial injustice and the twenty twenty election. We can have an election that is participatory. With robust. In twenty twenty justice isn't blind. We have to be far more critical and thoughtful and have that Lens. On today's episode, we hear from an international expert on non violent protests. Let's saw this one big issue. Let's more racial equality. Great to look at our narcissism of small differences later. When the outcry went up over George Fluids, killing peaceful demonstrators took to the streets in Minneapolis then in other cities across the country and across the globe, and a problem arose. It's a problem. We've seen elsewhere. Bad actors outliers with destructive agendas overtaking the news coverage by engaging in retaliatory violence. This isn't a new issue. It's one peaceful. Protesters have long faced in south. Africa Egypt Ukraine Tunisia and during occupy Wall Street. Of Popovich is a Serbian activist and scholar, social movements, organizers from around the world have turned to him for advice about how to strengthen and propel their movements. Popovich, as the Executive Director of the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and strategies or canvas. He literally wrote a user's manual for successful. Social Change. Our host and Applebaum lives in Poland. She spoke to Popovich from his home in Belgrade Serbia. Here's their conversation. My Solo bill is to create social change through the successful strategic nonviolent movement so surgeon. Why is this your solvable? In other words? What makes this issue personal to you? While first of all I started getting better young on my freshman year on the university, we were faced with a with a crazy regime in Belgrade their nineties any kind of choices, you can fight three concisely. I guess I was stubborn. Police stadiums fight together. Together with a group of France who launched the movement, called out four, which is a Serbian for resistance, and then built from eleven people to seventy thousand people, eventually getting rid of the best guy lawsuits, and I kind of addicted to the idea of the social change. Group People Power movements since you originally began odd for you and your friends without any experience. You had run protests before you had an organized movement before. And now you're able to advise people. So how did you begin thinking through the problem in the beginning was just spontaneous, or did you plan first of all? We started by doing it without planning. Which is why it took us nine years to actually do it so ninety two. We did a little bit of the of locking ourselves in the campuses, seeing east kind of stop. It didn't work because it didn't enroll the rural. Deny, six seven lot of people were mobilized. To smaller places, we protested for one hundred days day by day by day. This refigure out that everyday protest is probably not the best way to do it because it's very exhausting, so we figured out that it is unity thing that we are message. Most of the protesters were getting wall in the protest in, and they say we are too busy to plan so a learning by doing and making mistakes is actually the best way to do stop, but it's very slow so strongly. Advocate to the people start reading books and learn from other people's mistakes, rather than learning from there on. How did you break it down into solvable pieces How should people who WANNA create? Change think. Think about that for a successful protest. You need so much more than the protests. You need an idea what should be different with the cold vision of tomorrow. Then you need to share this vision with different groups. Then you need to work with people. You're not normally alike and probably disagree on many other stuff to really get to the change, so need to take a really sober. Look at the groups you need. And then then we dealt politicizing indulging groups, and then you try to figure out how you work together for the change that benefits everybody because we talked to stand. Social change is a very kind of selfish of for matinee, people and the trick indistinct stinks is. A unifying proposition, which is the smallest common denominator from the groups you want to mobilize and very orchid. You want to agree on what you agree. Also went to read what you disagree, so this is not about the things that that are different among us. We leave this thing for layer, but let's solve this one big issue. Let's get rid of of communism. Let's get rid of luxury L.. Let's make more racial equality, and so on and so forth, and then we are going to look at our narcissism of small differences later.

"popovich" Discussed on The Steve Warne Project - Sports
"All right welcome to the show everybody. The game plan is sports and whatever I'd say, the latter is dominating everything Cova. Civil Rights and hurricanes are coming into the picture now. I just saw my yacht but We're muddling through. Steve Worn along with Jim Jerome episode number two. Ninety five as we hone in on the three hundred Mark James. How're things today? Stephen Things are fine. Things are fine, I I'm a drooler. I don't know if you knew that or not. Yeah and. So I, often I wake up. My face is all wet. Not once in a while Steve, it's just skander standard deal every morning when I get up, and we'll side of my face is wet and my arm's asleep. Asleep on my arm things that things that I arranged before I went to bed. Are are not anywhere near where I place them the. Night before. So I I don't know how I sleep through all of its TV but I managed to eventually. and. I'm a real the. There's two things Steve that I'm. The King of. An expert. Okay! If, I, if I had to pick two things. I'm mean there's many many things Steve as you know that I'm you know I have paramount fucking knowledge of right but? The two are showerheads. Okay showerheads and pillows. Okay, I've been I've been in search for years and years of the of the perfect shower head, and the perfect pillow and I've tried many. Did. I even go back long before the days of my pillow. Guy, Steve. Who just made a pillow out of those little s shaped Styrofoam fucking chips and resold them for eighty dollars. Well, yeah! A good chunk of the listeners are laughing at you right now because. For the better part of two years every single day on Tsn, twelve hundred I did my pillow endorsement which. I think drove people quite crazy. So yeah, I do know it very well. Yeah, and the other one's a water pillow, so I love the chiropractor. Older here get the stiff back and it works for me. The chiropractor works switch. Go in there and. Down I, go and the Guy Cried Cranky Cranky crack, he lackey, cranky, chicken, little, cranky, okay, and off I, go and I can. I can stand up straight again, but he has these water pills, so it's affiliate. Fill with water. There's big bladder inside of the thing. And it's brilliant idea so you can. You can fill it to any level you want, and the more water you put in the the firmer. Your pillow is Stevie okay so I've had this thing for many years. Filled it with water win. The I've never never changed the water or anything Steve and. Shit just seems to be going wrong right now. Steve around nine around my life and. Of course there, that's those its first world. Problems of course compared to what's going on, but so I woke up this morning Steve and and the pillow cracked. Okay Oh. Yeah, so it wasn't. I thought Oh. My God. I'm really drooling a lot, you know. Okay. I know I'm a Drooler, but man. This is getting a little. Zip off to the doctor and say. I don't know I'm I'm sweating or drooling to three pounds of Water Okay. Look over. Is Split Wide Open and is now all over my mattress. So, that's always. You know woke up this morning to that. I guess not everything lasts forever Jim you should. Maybe maintenance I should probably probably nine on the pill or something after all your dental workers. Solut-. Anyway. So that was A. That's that's what that's what the day brought me today. Notice Steve these days or adding up of just. Shit. Right from my kid, dumping grout into the litter boxes to my mantle, falling off two my pillow cracking. To Sealing up tools inside the mantle that I made two cats pissing on the mattress Steve There's. Just a lot going on Steve, yeah. There's a lot going on for sure yeah I may I may get an intro to the show, too. What's Jim's body doing now? How Dak? The big boy say yeah. All right, so let's jump in lock going on right now with these anti racism protests. And sports is just like everybody's in talking about it the black lives matter message that people are trying to get out there and everybody one wants to discuss it, and that's a very healthy thing that's happening right now. Gregg Popovich though. I know you had a chance to see this as well. The Spurs head coach. He did not hold back. When talking about trump and his response to the protests. Of course trump right now is in the mode of. Threatening everybody with the National Guard Threatening to use military force against protesters in the United States and they're all they're all over America. They're demonstrating the death of George Floyd. Popovich's commentary I mean it was unbelievable. Like has his any anybody in sports ever talked about A. Leader like this. So this is what Popovich said. It's so clear what needs to be done. We need a president to come out and say simply that black lives matter to say those three words, but he won't say it, and he can't. He can't. Because it's more important to him to mollify the small group of followers who validate his insanity, but it's more than just trump. The system has to change all do what I can to help because that's what leaders do, but he can't do anything to put us on a positive path because he's not a leader, he goes on to say. He's not devicive. He's a destroyer to be in his presence makes you die? He will eat you alive for his own purposes. I'm appalled that we have a leader who can't say black lives matter. That's why hides in the White House basement. He's a coward. He creates a situation and runs away like a grade schooler. Actually I think it's best to ignore him. There's nothing he can do to make this better because of who he is and that is a deranged idiot. I've been thinking about this all morning and to be and to be honest. All this all these different angles that people are coming from on social media to try and come up with something different to say or trying to trying to grip us with what what we need to think about what's happening. All of it that I read is is really says the same thing. This thing's got to stop okay, this has to stop. And and thousands and millions of people are weighing in. With, it's not just a racist problem. It's a human problem I. It's you've probably I've read a bunch of it I've read a bunch of not not because I'm forced to. Because I'm you know I? I want to be up to speed on it. And and all of it as you scroll through is is is. Saying saying the same thing, perhaps a different way, but but with the same message and then today. Of course it's it's blackout. Tuesday right so. When you scroll through Instagram, there's just you know. People are just posting a black blank black post. Okay of a frame. There's nothing. Right and I. Don't know what you think about this. D I should have asked off air. You know to see, but here goes anyway. It's kind of. It's kind of I'm getting the sense that people who are coming. You know coming forward. Whether it's you or me or everyday, Joe or public figure and saying here it is baby. This is a this is an atrocity. This anarchy that's going on has got to be stopped. And on and on about it that it's terrible and that we've got to do something about corrupt police officers, you know this pop guy going crazy on the president, which I think is over the top I think the timing of it is is wrong. On a side note. I bought some from Aj Jay cubic longtime going when people are going off on leaders. And and look. We're in a pretty serious situation there and and. You know the latest on trump. Is I'm if the state governors don't do something about this or municipal mayors? Don't don't do something I'm going to step in. Going to step in because this things got the the. Ability here Steve to nuts to go crazy, and then he's going to call in the military I understand that..

"popovich" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Chris whoever here on the rich Eisen show from Toronto. I'd let's let's talk a little bit of raptors tonight's game. Chris, your, your, your concern level for collides health is what? Well, I, I just like to say this, because last year I got dog a lot because I'm very close with coach Popovich, and Kawai. And I hated the narrative that co I quit. So for everyone that said last year, he quit, and that he didn't have heart and that he wasn't a great teammate because he didn't talk and spillage sold out to the media. I hope that you're eating your words right now. Secondly, crystal Lowe did an interview with them after the game. And one coach told me that he's playing on one leg. And he said, everybody's heard this year, and he didn't embellish, and he didn't take a knee and act all tired, like some players may do when they fought through adversity or so number one, I love the consistency of him. When he's heard he's not gonna talk about it. And when he hits you with thirty five points and dunks and steals in hobbling on one leg he doesn't embellish. And so I'm glad for him that hopefully all the critics have been silenced about the non. Sense that they were talking last year just trying to take the side of a coach that they never met before. And so I'm happy about that. But I, I still think it's about the bench. Man, when you look at the bench of this, Toronto, team, the question is being who's going to step up? You know, qui- is going to play well, but if it wasn't for Norman pile how he came in and play. And, you know with these TV you know in that position. So I'm looking for van V, you know where where is he in, in the regular season, the average eleven in this series averaging four?.

Yeah. So the any loyalty, he also I then clarified is this European or is this your sons of and this is just my opinion. Correct. And that's fine. And it stands right there there it is. You know what I mean? So that's news. Especially considering he's been in the news all week. Yeah. You know? So I think that's news. We actually have Anthony Davis sound from earlier today. Dave. City organization, France. Everything could. Don't know. How long is game. Real short. And I feel I was tomato issued of wanting to go to the latest. Nah, I never gave a Reverend station never gave publicans in no destination or anything. So I'm not sure that's coming from maybe the connection. Representation, never get a probably a destination. Let me ask you is your Mona because there's a lot of talk on my time line right now about how the the Celtics clearly managed this asset accumulation stuff, right? And they managed as well as anybody, really. But is there some like potential view from players that oh, we're just a dollar amount to you like a cap figure to be able to kind of make bigger moves. Now, look. Teams have done business like that forever. Yeah. But it's been really publicized the way the Celtics. Do you think that hurts them too? Because they as airtime is think kind of falls in line with that. Does it does? I mean, you know, the big decision with say Thomas, which I kinda saw at the time coming was he was having a career year. He finished fifth in the MVP voting that year, remember that. And he says backup the brakes truck and one of the biggest things you could do in. This league is decide you know, not just what to spend your money on. But like make sure that you have the if you're gonna spend two hundred million dollars..

And I think there will be some relief after February seventh. If you're not traded, right? So I think between now and February seventh third there should be some anxiousness. But like I said earlier, Luke Walton has been traded, right? I mean, he knows what if feels like there are very few players in this league that are untradeable by the way, Anthony Davis. You would have thought would be one of them. Right. And he's demanding a trade. Yeah. But other than LeBron is there anybody on that roster that you would call untradable. Just magic said Brandon Ingram was untradable. That's chain. Lively word came out at some point that Lonzo ball was untradable. Right. And no longer think that's the case with anybody. No, no, not. No, we live in a new world. Now something else that Dave mcmenamin wrote today is the Dell damps the general manager of the pelicans is not quote, not picking up his phone.

"popovich" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Happy seventieth birthday to Gregg Popovich happy birthday to his. I don't care. Good luck. I feel for Gregg Popovich. I know he's had a lot of success. And he's not exactly the person who's going to get a lot of pity. But when you lose your wife and your job becomes less relevant because the people you're coaching make your team less relevant. I wonder what that landmark birthday is when you're not with the guys or the woman you used to be with that made your life. I know it sad. What happened Mike? What happened? I brought it to a weird place. What do you mean? A weird place. I think of landmark birthdays getting old mortality and extinction. What do you mean? A weird play. I'm certain it's lonely, but I think he uses that job and his team and the players he's coaching, regardless of who they are as you know, that's an awfully sad facility to go to Stu gods when you used to be a champion there. And what you're now coaching isn't close to that. Some people would say that pop is done his best job coaching this year. And it's. Twenty nine twenty two with the more to Rosie O in the Western Conference would say some people would say that nobody I'm telling you find one who would say it on the poll. I have said it. I'm looking for a second. All right. Put it on the poll is this Gregg Popovich is best coaching would some say say, my okay, fine using funniest thing from sports Rican this time, but thanks Dan ruined Gregg Popovich for me is if people don't have enough going on in their lives now. Now made horribly sad by Gregg Popovich is bright. The reason I'm talking about it is this seventy three year old Pat Riley who still won't talk to Larry Bird, Michael Jordan because of the competitiveness of those fires decades ago guys like Gregg Popovich, they're seeing LeBron take the league from them. Like, they're getting old in a way that you've never seen before where LeBron has got the power Riley's flying the Cleveland to meet with the LeBron LeBron's guys who already portrayed him one. I think what they're seeing the warriors taking the league away from everyone. There seem player empowerment I reserve doing that to the Bronco y quite Leonard doing that to Gregg Popovich. I'm sure they could have a pet writing Gregg Popovich can have a hell of a conversation over bottle one and just rained about kids these days, by the way. I misspoke there. I don't know that I really don't know whether Riley was in Cleveland. No, I saw that. He wasn't Cleveland. I know that part. I don't know if he was in Cleveland to because clutch management is headquartered in Cleveland. That's the part. I don't know. You said you can't take it back and get back. That's my truth. I wanna get to Greg Cody he'll be with us tomorrow. But Chris, Cody his son actually videotapes portions of the fantasy football gala. He hosts everyday speaking that. Oh my God. It's a gala official. It's a gala. That's my true. It's a gale. It's also not their fantasy football. It's PF which is different from fantasy football PF PI league PF is pro football picks international or something like that. Horb braided. No, it's not a fine. It's helpful guys. We're being way to mean, the Billy, no. Oh, Dan dollars. Okay. So can we get to the sound of Greg? Cody just he's standing stiffly in front of a television camera. There is a Calvin camera there in a phone, whatever. There is a cat. You know cleaning itself in in places that cats clean themselves that make it pretty unpleasant, but funny to look at. So he does this every year. Chris how many people are in the room as he's making this announcement how many people usually six this year. There was seven because you're laughing at ROY tell me what I tell my television camera referring to it as a television camera. No, sometimes we say off color remarks instigates voice because there's always a slight chance that might actually do that. We make ourselves laugh by doing this year. There were seven my brother's girlfriend got the invite this year has been with her a couple years. She was able to be there this year of the seven how many people are actually listening. She's the only one who applauds the Sela. -brate the victory of Greg cody's championship run through his Lobos playoff league..
"popovich" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI
"How do you like that Spurs fans Spurs get a road win? I gotta tell ya before it all happened. I, you know, I I knew Anthony Davis was out by the way, Spurs react on Spurs radio twelve hundred w O AI world. So streaming live video on twelve hundred w is Facebook page, Michael Bartlett and me crystal I knew Anthony Davis wasn't going to play in this game. But when I heard yesterday that demar Rosen would not play and that 'Davis protons would not play again for personal reasons and that lamarcus Aldridge was questionable. I was a little worried about this game. Of course by the time. We got to game time we learned that lamarcus Aldridge would play. And boy did he ever. We also learned that Julius Randle would be out for the pelicans tonight and equal Amirah Tich was out tonight for the pelicans. In addition to their superstar, Anthony Davis. But the Spurs did what they needed to do tonight, which is get a win on the road against a team that we're short handed. But so were the Spurs without demar derozan. Their leading scorer and without 'Davis Bretons their leading three point shooter. The Spurs had a great game. Lamarcus Aldridge twenty eight points, twelve rebounds, two assists Lani Walker. The fourth gets in and makes a lot of noise tonight with the win. Coach Gregg Popovich now is number one in NBA history for road wins five hundred twenty one road wins for coach Gregg Popovich. He moves ahead of Pat Riley into number one all time, that's a beautiful thing. Oh, by the way. Coach Gregg Popovich is birthday is on Monday. So tomorrow night, I'm going to bring in my Gregg Popovich prayer candle 'cause pop turns seventy on Monday. So I will say a little prayer with my coach Gregg Popovich. Prayer candle that pop sticks around for at least five more years come on pop sticker and come on you love coaching. We love you. Stick around pop Spurs with the big win. Now, it's back to back for the Spurs. Those are never easy. Even though the second half of the back to back. We'll be at the AT and T center tomorrow night against the Washington Wizards that again is a game the Spurs should win. But the Spurs have dropped games like that. And they've dropped them at home recently losing recently to the Charlotte Hornets at the AT and T center losing recently to the LA clippers when the clippers came in short handed on a five game losing streak. Those were two recent home games factor. I think those were the last two home games. I think the Spurs may have lost two in a row at home. So Spurs really need to turn it around tomorrow night. We will see if Rudy gays back from that ankle, it looks like he will be, but we won't know for sure until tomorrow demar Rosen. What will his status be for tomorrow? We don't know. Let's hope he's back dollars per tons. Will he be back tomorrow? I mean, if you're again without Dhamar derozen tomorrow night against Washington, plus 'Davis Bretons and maybe Rudy gay. We don't know for sure that's going to be rough. Let me tell you how you can participate in Spurs react tonight as we celebrate this road win over the New Orleans pelicans. You can dial us up the old fashioned way. I am old school get off my lawn..
"popovich" Discussed on The NBA Show
"I don't think we're actually even arguing so much as like pointing out like why if it cly he isn't working, and I think to Haley's point like Houston wasn't the proper context for him to really like show whether or not he could transition into a lesser role. I do think like they had all those injuries. And all of a sudden he was playing way too many minutes. And then his defense got exposed. I would I I do think that perhaps he deserves a second chance. But I also think that one of the big things from quanson like stats based guys like John holliman back day was always that we give too much credence to reputation and guys who had done it in the past and give them too many chances when in actuality probably should be giving more chance at the guys without those names like guys like Daniel house. And I think it's really interesting that a team like Houston made that decision the big question going forward. I think is the Houston's the same team that signed Chris Paul until he's like fifty. Yeah. No. I think you still need stars. But like the guys the filth roster like giving the James none ways. Like well. I think chances looking to people who are established he can pull it off obviously Christmas still good level, but they are going to be paying for him. And while into the contract itself is bad Chris Paul's production, when healthy is still very I think that would be the distinction. This is Joe Harris league now. It's not a matter. What it is. I love my bearded brethren. Do we see any team that you guys would want kind of tickets? The laker. No, well, that seems like the most likely outcome. Here bought grades or contact to save a team. I would really like to see him in San Antonio. Yeah. That's a good because they are a team that has a really good system. Obviously Popovich, I don't know if pop could survive, but I do think that. The way they've catered their system to their starters as in Dhamar in the markets in the mid range. And then their bench has more of the three point oriented guys. I think could make mellow valuable in some way in just the way that utilize the mid range at do think. It's interesting that Santoni is the litmus test. Yeah. Yeah. Basically, if you could survive in San Antonio here, you're okay in our books and say I want to see. Son, Dennis Smith junior. They're all all the outcasts. I think he would be interesting in a couple places. I think Portland is one team that like like talked about maybe adding him before he went to the thunder. I think that's the type of move Portland can make and say that we tried to shake something up without actually trading CJ McCollum, which we wouldn't want to happen because then CJ will just sub tweet the ringer again. I think that would be interesting, I think and then Golden State Warriors. I think just Adam throw him in there. And then I think it's just like every we have five stars when I love guys with with reputation. Yes. That's the theme of this episode Haley, we put that as the show title these fucking off. And that would be fun. I mean, that'd be fun from like a attention in like just. But but but think about it. They have nothing to lose. Right. And it would be the most his minutes is taking. I mean, just put him on the bed and just have them hang out with lying out. Actually, I do want him to go to as we can finally get that ring got to put on it. All right. That's it for this episode of proof chat. Enjoy the all star voting, and we will talk to you next week basketball is very good. Carrie?
"popovich" Discussed on First and Last
"Gregg Popovich, doesn't know how that game goes. We are going to run wild with this. Because again in a situation where we get so little from the parties involved. We're left to wonder like it's really interesting to view this through the lens of what we've been talking about lately in everything that's going on with Antonio Brown the Steelers and the question of what do the Steelers do when your best player is all the sudden linked to all this drama in a way that finally landed him off the court for you like that's what the Spurs face last year is they believed that a base level. It seemed like on the outside. They believe that he was healthy and Leonard and Leonard believed he wasn't. And so you had your best player off the court not helping your team for this entire time. And it became a point of immense frustration for Gregg Popovich, and it became. A point of immense frustration for his teammates, all of whom spoke out in a way that was so counter to me, but the bottom line up being your a worse basketball team for that. Now Kawai Leonard when healthy has clearly demonstrated he is still one of the best players in the planet. And so I look at this and initially my read was man, this expose. However, you want to slice in what a mistake this Burs organization made one who always seemed to have the plan, and whether it was by circumstance, we're back in the day, you're bad at the right time, and you end up being able to draft him Dunkin while you've still got David Robinson and all these things that bleed into. All right. You're able to get quiet Leonard, and he develops more and more into this MVP caliber player and get you to that point. But then I look at all the stuff that's going on now. And I say, even if I believe Kawai Leonard in protecting his body, which seems to be a different scenario than what's going on in Pittsburgh, even if I believe that if he goes about it in a way that makes it difficult for the team. In a way they disagree with. You can see the difficult spot. It's put them in. And now it's put them all in an interesting enough spot to where I am genuinely excited about Spurs basketball at a point this year in a way that I didn't think was possible first and last podcast. I think smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel. So I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Switch to Joel check. Oh, J U L dot com slash last. If you don't smoke or vape don't start warning..
