It was exciting but this rockets team needs to find the right hierarchy It's it's an interesting balance. Victor oladipo going into a contract year. I think should be operating a little bit.

"Spotify just tune And then I was shedding some light on how these financial markets or the stock market really works. It comes down to supplying the man, which is where the big boys the big institutions, the smart money is buying. But also where they're selling saw us as an individual investors. We kind of want to jump on their coattails and trade like a bank. And not against them and Alice. We get into this next segment. We have a lot of listeners that they want to understand how those how that smart money is creating income with stock market because we all know the stock market. There's some phenomenal opportunities that are happening right now where we have some great volatility, which means these stocks are moving pretty fast, which is kind of what you want, because it's technically a slow moving market. Now, how can us as an individual investors utilized the stock market like the institutions institutions do for income? Well, I think one mistake people make is that they think and act like retail traders not thinking and acting like the pros. And if you look at how the pros how the smart money invest compared to the retail traders, it's really totally different. And and we talk about these big moves up and down the volatility that we're seeing right now. The pros, the Money is taking advantage of those moves were as the retail traders pretty much you're sitting back saying, Well, I'm just going to hold on and not do anything, because that's what I'm told to do, who was telling them the pros air, telling them the smart money is telling you to do that, And that's a great business model for them, because you know it's it's the way they make the most amount of money with the least amount of work. We'll think about that. If the pros are telling the public to do a certain thing that's kind of like, gosh, what's a good example? Let's let's bring a sports analogy here. That's kind of I want one team will say, the Los Angeles Lakers telling the the Portland Trail Blazers here's what you need. Here's what plays you need to run every single when you're playing us right right, because it's the kind of fighting against each other. Yeah, what financial markets right. What happens to your chances in a situation like that, and they know the hand. It's like, though in the dealer's hands, right, So here, here's the thing. You know what everybody would love to make the perfect trade of the perfect investment. Is there such a thing? Probably not, In fact, Absolutely not. But what you what you want to try to do to aspire to something as close as that is possible, And you mentioned that in the first segment, and that would be something where you have a low risk entry 0.0 R, an exit point with a high probability of succeeding. The high profit potential. Those air three components of what everybody should try to achieve. And I think the reason the way to do that is this twofold. There's two key elements to any trainer investment. One is his timing. That's timing. Your entry timing your exit at the at the best price. Where a trend starts where the trend ends, and then also then choosing the right asset to trade and for many people, it's stock it maybe maybe equities. For some people, it may be the other assets. We talk about futures for X Will. The stock is such a great place for Individuals to start because it is there is available and we all know that as well. Right now it's a great way for people to participate in the businesses that are out there. You know whether you're trading for short term cash, income or long term, looking at building up your wealthy retirement. There are ways of using these assets that will give you the they're better benefits. But there are strategies that you can use Teo participate in an upmarket their strategy is to use in a down market or sideways market. Unfortunately, Wall Street is putting most of their clients are advising them to be in something that only is going to make money than one direction. That's when the market goes up. And it does go up most of the time, but it doesn't go up all the time. It does go down. It does go sideways, and if you are in those markets and not participating to your benefit, then it's really wasted time. And for a lot of us, the older we get well for everybody. The older we get the less time we have to just kind of come back from sitting through a correction or a bear market. The smart money out there, not on Ly participates in a bull market, but then they protect the mole market profits. And they participate in a profitable way in the down market. What do you mean by that downmarket, though, but it doesn't called. It could be a correction. It could be a bear market correction is when the market is down 10% or more A bear market might be, Is it what is down 20% of Falcon? Someone participate in Denmark? That's a great That's a great question, And it's a question A lot of our students asked when they come in, because they have never been counseled or educated on that, and there are a number of ways of doing it. One is too short an asset or the market. Well, like apple stuff you could short apple if you wanted to. Or you could short Netflix or whatever you that. Maybe that's possible, right? Correct. Or you can short in Ben as Nick or the Dow or the S and P 500. Shorting is a concept that that hasn't been taught or is not understood very well by a lot of people. It is the probably the primary way that the smart money is participating in a down market. Basically, what you're doing is borrowing something, selling it with the promise of of returning it, in other words, buying a bag later and returning it, so the goal there is to sell something at a high price. Buy it back at a low price. Return it and then your profit is the difference between what it was sold for and what you purchased it back for what? You've got to close out that short position for it's just the opposite of buy low sell high and everybody knows by law sell high, But most people don't really know how to do that properly. You talked you mentioned time in, you have to have the right entry point where to get in at a low price. And then that exit point where to get out at that higher price, and but you also have the right asset. We're going to get into the right ass that's coming up here next. But al, you talk a lot about the stock market and how the stock market really works. But how assasin individuals can utilize the stock market. Kind of like the institutions do so. I want to give away two tickets to this investing class you have coming up right here at the academy this week. You have a couple that would be teaching. So let's go with collars one through 10 and give away two tickets for everybody that calls in.

Are headed home. We've got the play in game. So there were. A twenty two teams sixteen clearly make the playoffs. There too that are gonNA play for that last spot. So there's five that are going home you mentioned Phoenix has literally nothing to be ashamed about now. With their bubble performance clearly can be totally resentful I would be if I repeat expand but also be thrilled about what I've got going forward and I would think next year we should be a playoff team right if I'm Phoenix so they get to walk out of this yes disappointed but I would be very hopeful about my franchise going forward and I do think that's a lie the bring this up. It's a lot different. I think the spurt the Spurs fans are fine right? They're fine. They're they're they're not gonNA they're not gonNA walk away from this with some kind of colossal disappointment that their team didn't make it. This was a disappointing season they knew from the very beginning that this wasn't very fun and then this team was from played you know and that's right more fun in Orlando it's more fun to watch the all traditions firs Saxon pellet suffer my Derek whyte to some of the. Some good moments, sack and Pelicans just. Despondent Seriously Sacramento I it's just a catastrophe a you played like crap be the number two pick in the draft Marvin.

"My. Yeah we're recording this on late Thursday night. We have just watched Kerris ll avert. Come down the court have a game winning shot to send the Portland Trailblazers home to put the Phoenix Suns in a play in game over the weekend. takes a step back jumper against CJ, mccollum, he misses it and so Portland moves on. Phoenix though they went undefeated in the bubble falls just short. Of Moving, on and. I was texting with you during the game and I was saying with by virtue of the Grizzlies beating Milwaukee today. They are going to be in a play in game and. They were either going to be the eighth seed of Portland lost tonight or they were going to be. There were going to be the nine seed it Portland one, and so Portland did win and so that's who are going to be playing on Saturday It Portland has They beat the grizzlies at the very beginning of all of this. Clearly. When you have to beat a team twice and they will have to beat you once you're an extreme disadvantage but I told you via text. I said look. Obviously, I would like the grizzlies to win if they're not gonNA win because it's a bridge too far, and they've lost their guys I'd rather see the sons play the Lakers Portland play the Lakers I told you that tonight I just for Fun Sake, I would rather see that matchup because I was also telling you through the course of the game. I I think this Portland thing. You know look I have been if use of in my praise about Damian Lillard but as I have watched them and obviously I watched a bunch of their games over the last week. Or. They cannot stop anybody. It's like the backup for the clippers, the backups and bead went down in that Philly game and Lillard had score like nine straight and put him on his back and neck game. You know that that Mavericks, game obviously is a hundred and fifty to one hundred fifty down at the end of the game, and then tonight, this is like the Brooklyn. Nets that. Are Playing in their eighth game together as a group because. These guys have these guys weren't even on the t you know when this thing all ended here. This is the reality though right I mean. What he did during the stretch of something, we're always going to remember fifty, one, point, sixty, one points, forty, two points, tonight I mean the heroics from him are just incredible. We're always going to have the image of him pulling out from the NBA logo just steps past half court. What he did is absolutely remarkable. This is hall of fame level stuff. I was at a loss for words walk watching him at time shortly after he bet pull out past half court he had a crazy step back three when he was heavily contested, I mean, right it becomes normal from him with all that said. What we saw special from him, what we also just horrific defense and if Portland gets passed Memphis, which in all likelihood they will they have to win only one and that could that win could come on Saturday or Sunday in the second game on Sunday. But against the Lakers, the Lakers offense is going to get itself right against Portland affect the matchup is the is so bad because. You and I talked about this and I am said Portland's the one and you'd written at the very beginning of all of this how those numbers to me were extremely persuasive visiting that went to the West finals last year with that you're saying. The numbers the. Numbers just to to put those out there for the listeners again, last season with Merkich they outscored opponents by about ten points per one hundred possessions when Lillard in Newark share the floor when just Lillard was on the floor last year and the season there about even is like plus point nine points per one or possessions. Fact is they are significantly better team. Merkich though I do think like NARC as great as he is. I'm not sure the impact is. Is the same pre injury yet he's still getting himself back I. also think that this is a good case study in sometimes it's not just about. You know we can extract two guys, but it's the those other three that have now been changed out because Gary Trent not some kind of defensive. Gary Payton out there and Hassan whiteside is lazier. No get out and Carmelo, Hornets tonight. The I watch I, watch jared allen, and Joe Harrison everybody in the free world off of rebounds. All night. It was ridiculous in Carmelo's trying. That's more than before. He's got himself into shape. I'm not saying this is a good defensive team because they're clearly not defense team well and I'll tell you this because. But that's because we're talking about the effort whiteside and Carmelo or giving Gary. Is A S- has turned himself into a solid defender. Defender the thing Portland is without a Reza or even with a Reza they don't have enough wing defenders attorney. It just don't, and that's their big here in many ways that always has with the Lillard mccollum backorder with how Bacon be overmatched defensively it's always been there problem, and then you're going to see that against the Lakers are just going to pound him and probably went four or five because that. Defense is so bad. I've talked about this. So many times it is such an extremely difficult task. If you don't have if you're small forward is not a good defender, it is really tough. You know as unless you have somebody flanking him but I mean you go back there are so many in the history of the NBA like those wing solid defenders whether it is the Areza types or you go. Back in the day where there were these role playing type guys that the Lakers would have for years on the wing or Detaille Sean print is when they when he paid for a Detroit or obviously now you see Lebron Kawai Leonard Paul George so many have yeah you really do I can I. Obviously it is a tremendous bonus if the guy's amazing offensive player to but not have good defenders on the wing at all I mean you just saw tonight that was ju- that mean. It I get it. They've had to play like eight Grand Slam efforts in a row. They're dead. You could see Lillard after that game he spent you know and they've it's so hard to get up get up, get up game after game after game but they've done it and they got their just desserts are in a great position now and they've gotten the eight seed but. They are not what they were last year by any means, and they are also just so bad defensively that you feel like any team can put up points on them. You've seen teams that are literally playing benches. Of their teams that can score a hundred and twenty on them, and so they're there and I will tell you this I feel bad for the sons..

Yes, they didn't have LeBron. But even when LeBron is there offensively, the Lakers have been have been challenged. Over the course of their time here in this bubble, Do you get a sense that people are making judgements on teams correctly or incorrectly? Based on what we've seen? Why'd you? I don't think it's incorrect At this point. I think the West especially is a bit of Ah, um bit of a sort of cluster right now, like it doesn't seem like anybody wants That eight spot right?

"Playing, but ABS and nuggets take the day off, which gives us a chance to kind of reset things and Look forward. Zach Me. Cash of Denver stiffs will join me in the next segment, Paul Clea will join me. At 5 20 You conjoined me at any time. At 5 to 2. 98 17. We'll run the gamut today. That's for sure. Gotta get you. My betting picks last night was a good night for me. Feeling feeling myself a little bit. I was also feeling the Denver Nuggets for most of last night, weren't you? But at the end of the Blazers game, I came away a little conflicted. About what I just saw. Because on one hand The Nuggets had absolutely no business being in that game. They had the normal three starters out there, arresting Paul Millsap. They had done enough over the past couple of games to kind of not lock themselves into a top three seed but but certainly gained some separation. To the point where they could afford to drop one last night and not be in any peril of plummeting down the standings. And meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers Have everything to play for. I mean, there's no guarantees they're even going to be in the playoffs. And best I can tell there at full strength game played nerve played. By the way, nerd banished Bull Bull to the shadow around If you saw that Holy smokes. Just get out of the way, Bull. Posterized them. I think I think that's a recurring nightmare for Nuggets fans that Yusef Nurkic dunks on a nuggets player. Um But they had unearthed. They had game they had CJ Gary Trance been a revelation form and mellow Zach Collins. Seemed like a pretty Full Portland Trailblazers roster. And yet with all that The Nuggets were right there. Late in the game. With a chance to Win it. And I said after the third quarter when the I mean, the Blazers were on Lee up going into the fourth quarter because Dame And Gerry Trent hit buzzer, beating three pointers in the second and third quarters. That was the difference in the game. Couple of buzzer breeders. The Blazers. Should have been a little bit embarrassed. To be honest. That it was even that close. Did they just beat the Rockets? Beat Memphis. Were they doing? Laying the Denver Nuggets? Rolling out Bobo Keita Bates D Open. Monte Morris and Mason Plumlee. Were they doing allowing that group to be in the game? And and and Michael Malone. You mentioned that After the game. Have a clip number one from Michael Malone Policemen They're playing for their playoff lives. With all their starters in We've got guys that have not played a lot of minutes in the MBA. We're giving them all they could handle. I wish you would play with that same intensity in that second quarter, obviously, and there's a lot to Ah. The work on in terms of our defence, now three point defense, But you can't ask you guys to play any harder than we did in that second half on that was fun to watch when guys play hard and compete and give themselves a chance. And That's all you can ask for a coach. And we've seen similar situations to that. Right? I mean that game last night, especially if they pull it out is right up there with the magnificent seven win against Okay, see The when they got on the second night of a back to back short handed going against Johannes in Milwaukee. It was setting up to be a a top five victory of the season. For the Denver Nuggets. To be the team that knocks you out of the playoffs lastyear. What a message it could have sent. Right. You be The Portland Trail Blazers. That short handed With Very little riding on that game for you, but all of it, riding on The game for the Portland Trail Blazers. What? What a fantastic statement that would have been And you know, we don't forget that the Nuggets basically handed Portland That game Game seven. Last year. And what makes me conflicted. Is that Michael Malone gave the Portland Trail Blazers that game last night. Because you're leading in that game. And you're close late. And we haven't seen Nicole Yokich for like 1/4. Your best player. Spent not only most of the second half but the entire stretch run. On the bench. And Nicole Yokich just to add to the You know how Unbelievable was that the Denver Nuggets were in that game. Koyo Kitchen play well. When he was in So not only they missing four starters, the 5th 1 is having an off night. And then they were Winona Koyo kitsch down the stretch. And it was apparent Tio. Most everyone That the Nuggets were just Allowing the Blazers to win. I don't know. How you could slice it any any different and the only reservation that you would have about making that statement is well, maybe Michael Moore. Maybe Nicole Yokich wasn't feeling well. Maybe he got banged up. You know, maybe something happened that we didn't see. And we were all eagerly awaiting. Michael Malone's postgame zoom to find out why Nicole Jochen didn't play. And all the potential excuse and I excuses, but reasons That Michael Malone Could have potentially had For sitting out Yokich, even if they were bold faced lies. Oh, yeah, Tweet.

"I grew up as a kid. Detroit had a poll. Chat Levin was a center fielder for the Tigers and he knew how to play the poll at a pull out there for fifteen years and is what it is. People just moved around the pole. So LeBron opens up tonight in the NBA on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers, you know what I suspect is that Brandon Ingram will emerge as the second best player on this team. I suspect it's going to take him twenty to thirty games to figure this out. It's a weird roster of a superstar, a bunch of young kids who are getting better and some weird castoffs. I think they're going to by the end of the year in the I think a little overrated west. They're going to be pretty good, Charles Barkley opinion on the Lakers kind of my opinion. I think it's interesting. I don't know what I'm going to get. I'm fascinated to watch. I know there's fifteen teams in the NBA that are awful. I know there are two teams Boston and Golden State that are built to win championships today. And then this the NBA gives me a lot of absolutes. These two are great. These fifteen are awful. This is a big mystery and like Charles Barkley sound Dan. Patrick show. I'm just gonna interested to watch. I don't know how it's gonna play out. What kind of team are they? Are they going to let those young guys play or they go put those old guys out there. That's why didn't understand because those old guys are not their future ball coups, Brandon Ingram, that's their future. So I don't know what the Lakers are doing are they gonna try to groom those young guys and go forward with LeBron or they gonna play those old guys. I mean, I have no idea what the Lakers are doing are they're young team or their old team? And I think that that's what I'm going to be watching for the most. Yeah, I think they're the number one brand. The number one player and the number one mystery in the league. We know who's bad, and we know who special in this league. We didn't. We know the fifteen teams that are bad. We all agree. And we know the two best teams in this league are Boston and Golden State something Houston, but I don't think they're good enough defensively, and I think they're getting old mellows old. Chris, Paul's old I I don't think Houston's better Lakers or the one team in the league. That's that. I don't know what I'm getting. I have. No, I have no real idea. I think I think Chris, Bruce are talked about this. You know, LeBron tends to be a big picture guy and kind of trying to so it together over time. In Cleveland. It was not about the regular season. It was about June, and can we get to the finals and win it? This is the first time in years for LeBron he's not gonna admitted and he shouldn't. But inside he knows we are not beating Golden State unless some something crazy happens. We're not get into the finals. So any adult think he's playing to get to the second or third round? That's not going to impress him. He's he. I believe he wants that MVP award. He'll tie Michael Jordan with his fifth MVP. I think he feels these past few years. He should have one one. One of these years. I will push back on everybody that says, you know, they're not going to get coli and Paul, George, Jimmy Butler. I think what you're going to see happen very soon with the Lakers and it might happen tonight. LeBron's of forward. The second best player on that team is going to become Brandon Ingram, any apply, see it tonight. He went from like six and a half, seven a game to sixteen and a half. I think he's going to go up to twenty two, twenty three. They're going to have to great forwards and a third, Kyle coups off the. Bench and a fourth that they want Michael Beasley who can. I don't know how much he's gonna play this year, but it'll be fun to watch. I'm not sure what I'm getting. I do think they're good. I think you'll get better. I think it'll be a little dysfunctional I'm not sure about the Lonzo Rondo LeBron thing, and that's a worried about that. That's going to work itself out either way and it's a long season. So I'm not worried about that at all good stuff. By the way,.
