Just to name a few. Mr brownstein was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in nineteen eighty five. He launched me too because of his desire to support others who struggled to maintain good mental health. Mr brownstein welcome to the show. Thank you you have conducted major orchestras all around the world. And you are on a trajectory to being a lead conductor when you disclosed your diagnosis of bipolar disorder. And then you were shunned by the classical music community.

Fresh update on "press" discussed on Press Play with Madeleine Brand
"As you say she was raised to think independently and To have black pride and not to bend and she was the target of a lot of racist violence. She and her husband, can you talk about the incident that happened when she was pregnant? With Malcolm X. And what happened when her husband was away from the house and a group of white men rode up to the home. This is actually the story that Malcolm X is autobiography begins with Louise Little is pregnant with Malcolm. She has three other young Children already. But one night when Earl Little is gone on the road with his organizing, Louise is at home. She's pregnant. She has these young Children with her and a group of white men coming on horseback, this mob and they're carrying guns and they have their torches and they're yelling slurs at her. And in this moment she steps outside of the house confronts them says My husband isn't here. I'm not afraid of you really showing her bravery and courage, despite what I'm sure was the fear that she was feeling and turns around and goes back into the house. And perhaps because of how shocked they are. They end up not killing her her family that night. Instead they go around and break windows and continue to terrorize them. But they do leave and the family is left unharmed, at least physically. And it's something that carries forward into We see it, of course with Malcolm X, but all of her Children who witnessed her they often speak about this time being where they could see so clearly what they wanted, But she wanted her Children to do in these moments where the suppressor is trying to bring you down mentally, physically, emotionally stand up tall, no matter the cost. Profess your worth and your dignity. Great And I guess I'm wondering, you know, we we often compare Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr and their differing philosophies and you look at their backgrounds and their mothers and how different they were. How do you see their mother's influence? And there the way that they were raised in terms of shaping their different approaches to civil rights struggle, the nonviolent approach on the part of Martin Luther King Jr and the more confrontational approach? On the part of Malcolm X. That was something I love so much and writing. This book was understanding even better, how these two ended up on different paths, and I definitely don't paint them as opposites. Because I don't think that they were. I think that they were part of a larger team and just had different approaches to that. But something that we see very clearly is why this would have developed this mentality would have developed so we have Like I said earlier, Albert to King coming from more privileged her parents lead marches. They participate in boycotts there some of the first members of the end of Lacey P. There is definitely you know, this respectability politics that also plays a role in how Alberto grows up. She's more affluent, and we see that and how she raises her Children. Even in the way she raises her Children differently. There are expectations that she has for her daughter. They're different from her thin from her son's, so there's just a lot of play in terms of how she also has been trained to believe there is a way to stand up that she sees us dignified, something that they don't call non violence. But it's very similar in terms of the tactics that they're using. And then, on the other hand, we see with Louise Little and Earl Little little, they're constantly being attacked. By these white supremacist groups constant being persecuted. Their houses are burned down, and they're responding from this place of seeing this violence constantly. They don't have the same privileges and protection that the king family does have. And so of course, It's going to lean to more, I would say radical and much more responsive, Andre thinking about how do we really tackle the violence of white supremacy? Something that I think the King family just approached differently because they were able to do so in a way that Malcolm X his family when you see all of the terror that he endured, not only the house being burned down, but his father being murdered, then his mother being put away against her will in an institution for 20. Five years of his life him being taken away and separated from his siblings. It's going to be a really different approach to what he sees as the solution. And you know, the saddest part, of course, is that all of these moms outlive their sons? So that's something as a mother. You never want to do as the worst thing to see the death of your child. So what were their lives like after their sons died? It is such a tragedy and it's something that I say early on in the book so that we are framing the context, knowing that we're going to get to know these women before their mothers were going to get to know them as they're bringing their Children into the world. We see them worry about their sons and all of their Children as they're going into the civil rights movement in their own ways. And then we also see the pain the very the very real tragedy the very real loss of losing their sons. I also wanted to make sure people knew that their lives didn't end there as difficult as that was as painful as that Woz. They really all three of them saw the importance of their lives still, in the importance of educating the next generation of their families, maybe even more so than before, because now their grandchildren many of them were fatherless. Alberta King loses not only one of her sons but two of them within two years of each other, and she spends kind of her final years. Her life was also cut short. She was assassinated in her church. But she spends her final years really doing what she's always done, which is educating her community and taking her grandchildren under her wing, And then we have Louise Little, who, after 25 years of being put away and locked away from her family on Lee has one year with her son after she's released before I'm out, the Max is assassinated. Then she goes on to live another 25 years and in this time bonds with her grandchildren when her Children were taken away from her. They were very young. And so in some ways, her grandchildren end up knowing her better, definitely, in the case of Malcolm X and his Children. His his and Betty's kids end up knowing their grandma Louise in ways that he was never given the privilege to do. And then with Brutus Baldwin she lives the longest. She was born in the early 19 hundreds of lives up until 1999, which is incredible that my life even overlaps with hers, and she reconnects with family members. She goes back and forth from New York and Maryland just to be with both her grandchildren as well as old family and her final years she spends loved and in good health until her last moment. Wow. It's quite a story and is really fascinating. So thank you so much. Thank you so much for having me. That's on a malaka Tubbs. Her book is called The Three Mothers Have the mothers of Martin Luther King Jr. Malcolm X and James Baldwin shaped the nation. Hmm..
Hollywood Foreign Press Association to Vote on Reforms
"Thursday. The association that awards the Golden Globes is set to vote on reforms after more than 100, heavy hitting Hollywood publicist threatened to stop doing business with the group. Reforms would fundamentally change the way the Hollywood Foreign Press Association does business. It's a big question whether that's going to happen, and there's a lot of people waiting to see. It's not just the publicists and time's up in these advocacy groups. But NBC, which broadcasts The show and Dick Clark Productions, which produces the show that Stacy Permit a staff writer at the L. A times who detailed years of unethical and possibly illegal conduct in an investigation of the H F P A She spoke with us earlier today, and I asked her about some of the conduct in question. They ran the gamut from issues of sexism and racism and homophobia to that I convention is one publicist said that They had an actor, amateur actor and one of the members asked them. Do you still have sex at your age on brother situation and actor came out and they asked him if he was going to be filing for bankruptcy again. I mean, these are questions that are inappropriate in any form and certainly have nothing to do with the project that they're there to talk about him promote, but more important, and perhaps more more damaging. They described that the age of P a would snub clients. Those clients, particularly if they were people of color if the projects they represented were led by people of color or non a listers. So why is this this so significant? So first of all, in order to get a nomination, a Golden Globe nomination. You need to get in front of the H F P A. And that means one of their sanctions, screenings and press conferences. So if you're not going to get their attention, you're not going to get a nomination. And a nomination. It's become a huge marketing tool in the industry, which translates to attention for the projects that it translates to box office, which means money talent themselves. You know, with the nomination or wind on her hand, can use that you know when they're leveraging their next deal, so it's part of the Hollywood eco system.

Does Chlorophyll Water Heal Acne?
"Fill water. Have you heard about. This is something you can drink. Yes yeah no. I i know i know it is but i don't know which one you're talking about. Well there's like there's one that's literally called chlorophyll. Water branded really seems to be popular on tiktok and some other. I've just been seeing it on instagram. Lots of people like these. These supplement trends come and go with company in put out a press release saying that chlorophyll has a hashtag of over one hundred eighty eight million views so then click through the press and i was amazed at how many like nutritionists and dermott they were like reporting some magazine reporting some website reporting and making claims but very guardedly that it helps with acne. And so i went on tic tac tic tac. Sorry tiktok and i was looking at the hashtag. And yes indeed. People are starting to say core. Fil water helps with acne so friends. Can we talk about this. Second i dug into this. We got a lot of extrapolation. Going on and what happened is what i think often happens. With signs reporting there were studies that mentioned chlorophyll and acne. Okay but people are taking them completely out of context and not really looking at it so i just want to tell you what the two studies are. So you can judge yourself Was of ten people was twenty four people not a great size and they talked about topical chlorophyll helping with acne and in one of those cases it entitled show with phil like lotion that had the chlorophyll on it by the way we chlorophyll is a plant pigment stuff that makes plante okay so topically applied in a very small study. It showed a little bit of improvement in acne. This does not mean drinking water with chlorophyll is going to make your acne go away and on that note chlorophyll water doesn't even have chlorophyll in

"We haven't really defined tilting tilted is kind of a term that most people know but just in case. You're like well what the heck is it. Or what is the exact definition. We're using here. I'm saying pretty much anything that knocks you off of your a game. Maybe be or better game. You know any of the degrade your quality of game and that's clearly a relative term right because if you're just starting out and poker like you don't have a game the way that a professional hasn't a game right but you know what your game is you know what you performing the best strategy that you know how and you know that that's going to get better and better over time as you put in more and more effort but as soon as those mental things star creepy in and you're not playing the best you know you're not implementing your strategy as best as you possibly can then you're tilting and the thing with tilt is there are a lot of different types of tilt right. There's kind of traditional till which is what we think about when someone gets really really angry and also and they just start making like overly aggressive and just really ridiculous plays but there's also winners till boredom till there's like all these other kinds of tilt as well to your point of writing down when you do tilt and trying to determine what kind of tilted is why you might be happening is something that happened during the session before the session is something that is pressing on something that actually impacts your day to day life. They are not aware of so. I've tilted for tilted at the poker table for things that happened outside of the poker table. And i've how i've tilted in real life over things that happened at the poker table even though they didn't tell me in real time when i was buying that session like you have to be aware of things like that and not as a really good way of doing that just because anytime you journal it's really good for that introspection and most people don't spend the time to introspects anywhere near enough

I'll just get this out of the way. I wanna thank you personally for. The war of art has been instrumental personally and professionally for me. It's been probably the source that is probably steered my path. More than anything was was that. So i wanna thank you for that book from four mcgrady. My my pleasure. I'm delighted that it helped. And when i even coach when i do some individual coaching. I don't do it that much anymore. But when i do i always have them read that before.

And i think that's what this book is about. I think it's about love at the end of the day.

CETERA but there was nothing to see him go through a half house while take two or three shots but the thing is realizes just about him being unselfish making the right play if he's not getting those fifteen shots up those shots are getting transferred to someone else on the roster who is just not as efficient score and so it seemed to embrace that a little bug last year especially in the postseason had those moments astronomer young guy puts the team on his on his back and that's when when I start to believe in okay this has the will and the spirit and the commitment and the grasp of what he needs to do for his team to get them there so I'm much more commits the okay to be that guy that I was a year ago but yeah just might need to take fifty shots game because I'm an was sufficient score on the team you know almost games any games out and you see an embrace that now joe-marie eighteen point two points game last year a career high four point eight assists no one's really talked about but he really became and I mean he was not very good before became a better distributor and a guy that would punish defenses that were sending a second defender him last here part of it is just playing off of yogurt to yoga because kind of rubbed off on him in the game but that was good he fought through a really tough injury down the stretch of the season and in the postseason but twenty twenty one point three points a game four point seven assists at just one point six turnovers and fourteen postseason games had one game where he just dug his team out out of the grave and brought them back to a win and that's when you really start looking at a young guy like okay. This guy really believes that he can do the things that not very many players in the league and do nows house very high draft will remember that. I questioned the extension. He got a I just I'm. I'm optimistic that he's going to be a valuable player in you know become one of the better scores. League at the position but he's just not quite versatile enough. It can all of all that money but we'll see what he turns into still often but the feedback loop having success get San Antonio you also in the first game they had no idea the best player they are the best team in the the court halfway through game tune into the first quarter game three you saw them realizing we're way better than them and got ahead and then the spurs us there savviness to kind how to fight back in the nuggets kind of casual with the Spurs and then we've Portland that was dog eat dog and Davis. He put their experience to work late in that series. He's but I you know I talk all the time young teams getting I mean most teams of this position lose their first playoff entry. I you know playoff around if they get fourteen playoff games last year Hasek success to have some versity overcoming adversity. I think that's going to be a really valuable feedback loop for them and serve them. Well not only in the postseason up to the season but in this thinks well you your thoughts and having observed them in a playoff context for the first time and to see them kind of figgers or something out the first time yeah. This is pretty rare pretty impressive. Yeah I mean Malone took over a team that had won thirty games and since then they've won. I think it was thirty four forty forty six fifty four like you said you know competing in the playoffs and all that said they've kept the core together that is rare that is extremely rare these days to have a team that has that type of scent and is is able to keep the core together we saw Atlanta the kind of essent but it was more based on veteran players and better players. They brought in the end. They were not able to keep their court together ultimately and and so this year you know can they take another step forward. You know you know there's some good teams in the West but some of the strongest teams are taking ah a notch half an utter flashback so there's you know it's hard. The hardest Hump in the world is to get over the the fifty five one hump that were you know conference semifinal team now. We're going to inch up towards sixty. We're going to inch up towards a two seed. We're going to inch up towards making the conference final. That's that's the biggest hurdle to clear in this league in it. It's you know some some really talented. Teams with great coaches aren't able to get over that hurdle sometimes but here they are an all you can do is put together a team and the coaching staff and the organization that is ready for that step and you go you go you find out how good you are so to me. They've done everything they can. They can do you know. Maybe they had one pieces season. It goes along help a little bit on the wing still really deep in the big spots but you know what else can you ask for but increasing wintel four times in a row did he deeper and deeper in the playoffs having a young core. That's played together for several years and is still going to be together that you really can't ask for much better situation than that. The key will be to sustain that and clear they were last year but the last two seasons the western conference has been bunched up in like one game is like three awash but so it wasn't like they were cruising spot the whole year long construct ever improving defensive lineups guys like Monty Morris Morris Tori crag and golic believed Beasley learning in putting it together. That's going to help you again. They were top defense last year. So it's good Mike Cologne. We talked about four but he didn't really want to hear it a team with the officer profile they have. He wants to build a physical grinder kind of in the in the mold of deems where his dad was an assistant coach those sorts of things but he's gotten them there to where they're executing defensively better helps they'll probably will step is unexplained. It's basically an expiring contract and we'll see what the commitment is to him but Paul millsap really helps cover up for a lot of what Yokich can't do on the defensive core and some of his missteps steps and things like that millsap is still incredible. I don't know if you give them a three or four year contract with a lot of money here. That's if you were any kind of just really assess. What's the risk of that up but certainly if you want to the nuggets this nuggets team to try to take the rear? He needs to be a part of the plan or they need to figure something out because you need a guy that plays at the four four basically on offense and can comfortably step into the five and be a rim protector and function as a guy that does a lot of communication communication there but I think about the challenge that this interface to physically this year. It's hyphen quite Leonard Import a game who does has that. It's not obvious to me and Marine Yokich are always gonNA Kinda. Present some defensive challenges neither of them are have a lot of foot speed collateral speed those sorts of things think about what the Hawks Fraternity with trae young John Collins both offensive really talented young guys but not obvious path for either of them a tougher path where Trey and John J C cause a JC can jump in move and he's fast in a straight line and stuff but you know so. How do you put a defensive lineups successful. When two of your five are not really naturally get to be Awesome Court Saudis Stopping Ah Paul George. How do you handle this handle Lebron. Ad If I get into a playoff series defending Arden Damon Cj Damon Cj put them away in this the game last year so that's going to be where I think I watched his team. Closely is okay when they're going up against the team with two absolute superstar with the players players how to cover them both. How do they account for them. Both those sorts of things so you know it's also going to be interesting that in a lot of their young guys are starting to approach restricted free agency if not this year next year or take a break and talk about how that could play out this year in terms of will this roster. We the same at the trade deadline as it is now. There's so much optimism around the depth and all role players all the guys the fans so excited but but sometimes you have to realize we need to take a swing and take some risk. Try to get the very tops. We'll take our last breath talk about that. Okay Watch overheard on Gomez played really well and then even last year and then an latest couldn't ask him to give me two games last year. injuries lingering injuries things that he couldn't personally overcome leak. Beasley easily Tori Craig all restricted free agents after the season Monday more is one year away from that and he's really critical part of this team they might the the teen is best configure to make a big tree the season for salary match purposes yeah. Harris who's a really good player. Just don't know if he can bring like the the biggest impact you might ask for position on the C. Seventeen point eight million Barton for some crazy reasons getting paid eight billion still Plumlee who is a a really useful player for team up fourteen million. I'm not sure he's GonNa give you anything close to that value could they package may be one of the young players with one one of those guys for sorry match purposes of maybe a future first round dramatically. Only oh one draft pick okay so easily have to future. I thank you Kinda play what they wanted to could. They Bradley Bill which would be just. I mean the CR- really kind of get them up to potentially where the Lakers and clippers clippers are terms of top talent or you know if maybe he didn't want to send out draft picks a little bit less risk is can they bring Kelly winnick who could be on the court from the second unit for the first unit not to the same level of excellence but you know it's not like you have to completely play differently and one of the reasons they like Barton is because Barton will kind of just try to put the Hoffitz on his back when you could just on the bench. I don't love that but they have some options this year intimate to make a move and if you're not going to be able to bring Wacho bag. I don't know that the league values want to be a guy that at like a middling team could get it and throw in there and consider upgrade. I love him. I love what he brings to the table but I think I'm higher on him. Probably is the consensus. It's as Beasley so good and transition..

"To the rim and finish around Traffic Brad Stevens. Hey let's give it a lot more out of hayward. I I make them work. W Passer sees the flory as good vision and kind of slide him offensively at the four and work through him. I don't think that'd be crazy to to see a little bit. About what do you think no. I agree my my hutches. Boston is probably sitting. There still trying to figure out is there. Is there a five out. There is there. Is there a way to get you know a little bit more proven solid guy at the five little more well rounded candor kanter's played four and five you know and he's a better defensive player than people give him credit for. He's always call them good but he's better than you know. People people sort of are quick to say he's the worst defender in the league and it's not really only a fair isle label at all but to me. I WanNa see this unit offensively and how they functioned they could be really explosive and they could score a lot of points. I still have a hunch that and you know you know. How coaches are that Brad. Stevens is probably talking to Damien saying you know we got a lot of talent on this team but I'd feel better. You know at feel better. If I had a little bit more experienced option at the five spot maybe they could address that throughout the season if hayward isn't a really clicking. This season isn't the same kind of player I could see. Maybe a move there. you certainly not going to get you know the salaries as an issue t player option coming up at the end of the season that kind of stuff but we deals can be made you know my hunches. Celtics Baltics aren't a hundred percent comfortable with what they have the big spots. They are deep on the wing but me personally. I want to see see what they can do with this group and then I think the win enough game was to be in the mix of the playoffs for sure and you know as the season rolls along if they need some help the big spots the probably have chance to address that yeah and when we did the pastry we talked about one of the gate is Ken Miles Turner and play together other and we both said if they decide they WANNA move the bonus before they pay him the belt the Celtics and the heat will show up first because they love to executive Bacon playthrough facilitate if Indiana Indiana this is I want to lose the bonus. Danny aines doubt will now. I don't know Danny as always he's come a little bit short on terms of the asking price so we'll see what happens but also in Toronto Toronto if if they decide Yep. We don't really have this this year. Marcus would be a great facility to begin. It's fine so they're they're options out there and AH starting the season not going to be shocked to see Hayward. They're just because last year even just a bill and say hey here's production. He can give us if he's still the lacking the ability to dribble around offender so we'll see but you know. Danny Aines always can make make a move forty eight and a half is over under I think most people are saying they're coming a little bit short of that and when I think about Kimba and Brad Stevens and just the talent on the wings being so the options that they have having one of the best of permanent vendors in the league. Throw him on anyone. You're you're as comfortable as you're ever going to be but what we think a team that loses Horford and Baynes in the same off season and really doesn't rebuild is as much as I want to tell people. Don't be so hard. Don't be so down on KANTER use HORFORD and Baynes. They were so solid team last year and I just don't see the the back line defender on this roster. That's GonNa keep them organized. Is that makes me feel like the probably the a forty six hundred seventeen billboard. Where were you using your got him a forty six to forty eight but I think the way the east is going to stack up this year. Are they definitely the four spots within reach and if they can get their defense sorted out earlier in the year and you know the nothing they can start push upward fifty fifty but I'd say forty six forty eight hitting the four or five spot Gorgan Playoffs Okay Nuggets fifty four wins last year just a phenomenal season from I think they were the youngest team in the League. one game seven in the series were standing tonio loss game seven in the series which is Portland Portland offense seventh defense tenth which was a big step forward for the for the group net eighth they were second in assists percentage. Only the warriors had hires assist percentage and they were a league average in effect local percentage of fifteen right there fourteenth into shooting percentage the way. They got the being seventh overall in office. Primarily is the number one team offensive rebounding not allow turnover here they lost. Trey lyles. UH-HUH WHO's in San Antonio Nell Tyler Liden trying to make a Sacramento Kings Rosser and as Iot Thomas trying to rebuild has value in Washington. We talked about him. One of our I also the additions Michael Porter Jr. he plays this year. We'll be essentially an addition and a reminder guy that has a lot of national talent. Don't know how translatable it is to the NBA. I have been as kind of skeptical that he was going to be able to easily. Put it all together. I I think if you work hard can take a couple of years with Jerry. Grant was a really nice addition. When there was any foul trouble at all or would millsap got hurt. They had to play plumlee in Yolk gets together a lot and that's fine so match. I was putting some is death so nice to get a really active athletic for that can come in there and give time Melissa milsop East do some management things like that so we're really really nice edition of Char a summer league favorite. He's on We'll see what he can do a very smart player he just doesn't really have an NBA body at all. I ask link but just not strong but who knows maybe maybe they could get him there they've they've. They've helped more than one person. They're kind of translate. Their bodies will see but he's a fan favorite in a teammate favorite from everything I saw in early on as Tyler Cook six nine hundred fifty out of Iowa shot over two hundred free throws last year at cleese level but not a great shooter a kind of a physical linebacker in a in a basketball use hormone in bobole number forty four overall pick most famous guide into a contract probably ever non guaranteed contract Tyler Zeller but he has that fifteenth roster spot as also. I don't know what the likelihood that he gets it. So much of this team's ascension aggression has to do with they were Yokich and Murray can get to as a duo not at all dismissing their depth. They have great up and if you're a team that has a really good top end talent and depth talk about it. We could go through like the way you talked about the seventy sixers locking up last year and talked about Oklahoma City L. Locking lacking depth at times those things but in terms of becoming a going to be an from being a really good team. You have to have depth to be a really good team to being a contender is about your top tier talent so last year. Yokich seven point three assists a game which is wild to think of as a center three point one turnovers a game so the list of guys who had that many assists per game and that quote view turnovers per game drew holiday deer and Fox Chris Paul Oh Calorie Jeff Teague Albert Payton Resign Rondo now if you also say which of those guys averaged twenty points a game that was only Yokich Andrew and then you consider that Yokich no catch averaged ten rebounds a game. He blows that group away in terms of just how much value valuable production he brings bell whenever you try to have a conversation of the top ten player either give people like. Oh my God. He's either top didn't play Roy. What are you what what are you even talking about. Of course. She's a top ten player. You look with a production numbers and you're like okay. Maybe I should feel that way but you summit or like you know. I just don't know if you know if he's a good defender at a position where defense this is really important does he does he earned it all back on offense and then some you know but in terms of I'd say dealt. He's top twenty. He's he's very likely top fifteen and if anyone wants to say they're absolutely convinced he stopped going to criticize that at all but in terms of like what do you see him as being the best player on team trying to move up towards contender status. What's your view of him at this at this point given the fact that he can lose loses focus on Easter yeah way better a lot better focused at times. He'll he'll he'll get tired really stopped doing some of the things that aren't really taxing thing to do and maybe he is going to every year like most people do but you kind of already pegging right now in terms of the guy that a a franchise is clearly trying to right to the top of the League yeah. He's he's an incredible talent and a meeting in as people who were analyst who sit back and kind of critical the judge. I think that that Kinda SORTA downgrade him a little bit. If you're a coach or a for sky and you realize how hard it is to get it really good players in you in you know. Some people are sitting back thinking about. Can you win a championship. Can you be the Golden State Warriors. Can you be you know legendary teams like the Celtics and Lakers you know that's that's kind of an armchair quarterback approach approach to looking at Nikola Yokich but I can tell you player coaches across the League Gems Cross late would say we look everywhere for players that can do do one thing well. Maybe two things well and this guy can do three things really really well. There's just they're very few guys like that now. The question is can you win a championship with Yolk should being your best player sorted part of your one two punch as a lot of the elite contender teams do and that's that's remains to be seen and that's a different question for me. He's only what twenty three twenty four years old us very young. He's come a long way. He's been learning a lot and a lot of that is up to you know Yokich himself you know is he going to elevate his conditioning. He's come a long way with that but you know can. He get better than area for sure defensively the mental commitment on defense leadership the assignment based defense whether the gist the opportunistic style Rim protection when it's there to me talent wise he's top fifteen then league. Maybe top ten and just the bottom line. Is You know he's already reached the point where my question is. Can you win. The championship with him is too early to say you can't he. Hasn't you know for me. He hasn't done the little things this consistently enough to say. Let's go from being an all star. Let's go from being a T- A guy that took this team from like thirty forty fifty wins. Let's now go to being a guy that can win in the postseason as a first option top player that's what he has left approve and I think it's not fair to judge them and say what he has been over his first two years is what is all ever be and he's going to have to have the right kind of help around him but he's absolutely an unbelievable talent..

"We did our free agency. I think we did at the Dana Moratorium lifted recall correctly most it was a day after but one of the comments you made about the Celtics was I love this team and we're going to dig into a little bit later on but you love the idea of Walker Planet team with some actual wings. That's something that all due respect a guy like Nick Patou but Charlotte's consistently kind of undermanned in those positions sounds and all their players tended to kind of be kind of a one and kind of a four they had a hard time finding guys that like do three when they brought in Marvin Williams. I think I'm kind of UNUM is a guy at the time that was kind of profiles a three but now he's clearly a four as the leadership that as you get older no lack of wing depth in Boston get there. We'll see if you're filling as optimistic about them. We touched on the last podcast Zach Lowe's comment but he wouldn't be shocked to see the magic finish third word and we talked a little about who we see in that third spots a little bit of a either a spoiler preview depending on how you look at it in a positive way as a preview but they one forty nine games last year the organization and the fan base would say that that was a disappointing number everybody kind of lows around numbers but they they certainly expected to do better that second round exit in Eastern Conference playoffs after five games to Milwaukee they mock you just really used their length and their defense to basically shut down. Kyrie and the team was not really yeah I would say mentally engineer to kind of overcome career not bringing bringing to the table with with that Formula Kinda require that he brings to the table so Celtics tenth on offense six on defense net six big big losses Horford carry Irving Aron baynes Marcus Morris one of seventeen power forwards in on the Knicks team now Terry Rozier. We talked a lot about race here. Last episode added Kemba Walker very visible and his canter. We talked about and the free ends the episode how that's not a a joke. He's still a guy that has kind of a strange presentation of his personnel and himself on the court but he's gotten incrementally better over the last few seasons and his you know he was starting sitting around team that went all the way to the western conference playoffs last year and didn't as impasse seasons like require his coach to pull him basically give them any viability on defense so that that's really all the added apart from young guys as Kim Walker and his canter through the draft they got Romeo Romeo Langford assuming he's rounding into shape health wise Great Williams Celtics. Fans are very excited about that. I'm so Carson Edwards on to a tomato tomato waters fifty number funeral pick a guy. I really liked as an. Mba Prospect especially on defense not a big guy but really strong hands really good anticipation skills other LSU Mak strouss Natural Score undrafted out at Paul and then otherwise Greg. I didn't really know it's all Doug and here they have like a pretty big group like project centers like it's crazy this appropriate the twenty five year old Frenchman sub fifty five the next guy make him look like a small Mall Ford Taco Fall Seven seven ten the Guy Mayton after the Miami Heat set him lose six eight to forty Naw guaranteed auntie grandma drafted guard Radford fiscal two thousand fifteen mostly playing Europe since then US twenty two ninety seven three point tenths to four seasons but he shot thirty different different international line last year that he ought to make pro shots to be an MBA player a lot of new faces here return Hayward. We'll see if he's filling any better and just more more functional player Tatum Brown Smart Ts Otaly wanamaker Robert Williams again Greg said I distinctly remember because I put it out it on twitter at Lot Willis on the Celtics team. I love team. You still feel good about them now or are you feeling differently. Yeah I mean I love the team. It's GonNa be fun to watch. I'm just going to be exciting to see when wires. I think it's a little bit harder to gauge. I'm not backtracking. You're hedging in any way but what about the team is is now a two things one. MM cameras got guys around him could make plays you can finish. I think the wings that Charlotte had were a little bit what Mitchell dimensional a little bit Tennessee tours missile below league average shooters not overly athletic explosive up another core guy so chemists definitely going to have athleticism and speed speed around him tatum and Jaylen Brown young athletic to get up and down the court but also good shooters efficient players Gordon Hayward still. We'll try to work his way back to where he was before. The injury is still a very quality player. you know the bigs. I mean obviously that's where the big big losses are with. Al Horford referred Aaron Banks etc but I said two things one is a love Kimbe in the mix with this group of players and also love that now the path that's Kinda cleared Josh for Jason Tatum Jaylen Brown to step forward and instead of being sort of like second tier players on this roster. It's time for them to be. I hear players in this roster and it's GonNa be an opportunity for the whole world and the NBA to see Can they elevate their game could take a larger role for this Boston Celtics team so that's that's what I'm really excited about. Everyone knows the story when Kyri didn't play in the at the end of the season and the postseason two years ago essentially Brown on and pay them just went crazy got all the way to the Eastern Conference finals look Lebron had to lead the cavaliers back from an ot deficit and then Kyrie came back and I had said before the season last year. Greg and I don't think we're going to push back. I felt like I was kind of a lone voice saying this. This is GonNa be weird because if Kyrie interceded on the Celtics Roster they're going to commit to each other because they train him when you're left base essentially with the playoffs of being yeah no brainer if he was healthy at all and then the celtics have to commit to them as their leader and I talked last year about how it looked to me like the culture cetera with being Horford who is fantastic ultrasensitive being crate tyree who's just done enough weird things individually while hit all all of those hit hit songs along the way and they just looked dysfunctional and not like like we talked about last week will okay see you this will they play Hari other. They commit to each other all those sorts of things so the big thing everyone's GonNa Watch earliest how the TATUM and Brown locate hayward's a big part of that too but hayward will be as good as his body allows him to be. We know he's mature. We know he's he knows how to play knows how to prepare for season and it's just a matter of going to be what he can physically. We do the he'll. He'll he'll bring every bit. His body allows him to do but where tatum umbrella are mentally you gotta wonder if Brown is any any kind of weird space in terms of whether he's GonNa agree to an extension or not before the season starts but let's kind of talk about their so tatum rookie sixteen point four points per thirty six minutes on forty forty seven and a half percent field goal kind of ridiculous and unexpected forty-three percent from the three point line a lot of wide open threes that you're like a Lotta rookies who did very different things even his rookie season than what he did at Duke League really know what to do with him. I think for about the first half the season that's why I got a Lotta Open threes. I don't know forever ever replicated umbrellas in his last year eighteen point four points thirty six minutes on forty five percent shooting thirty six percent from the line which for him was going to be always think unacceptable double number sixty seven percent at the rim which is not bad but he's capable of being like one of the five best players at the Rim and the League two hundred ninety one layup attempts that he converted less than half of them in his rookie season three hundred sixty lay attempts and half of them so I still think he's capable of what one day of leading the League again scoring scored all three levels has a good high release point out his jump shot is very repeatable superfluid shooter but he's going to have to learn learn how to create contact when attack the Rim and there's any sort of resistance there and get to the free throw line and people guys that maybe takes as many as ten free throws a game that you probably a little stronger to feel confident and surviving game season because he's pretty thin guy but to me. I don't know the guy that like dunks through any sort of big defenders at all because he just doesn't have a white frame despite the fact he is a good elevation and he's a good athlete and like when he has even just a little bit of space he can dunk strong but he's not really I who finished his through defenders so he James Harden or other guys that aren't like super explosive guys attacking the rim easily. It's really really him. Embracing contact getting to the free throw line thoughts yeah and I it's just a mentality of am better than other people in the court court players come in the league with really high ceilings an all potential in the world as a rookie or second-year player they they're it's sort of like deferring a little bit to their teammates and even sort of not not sort of taking the Alpha male role in certain key moments. That's all WanNa see from him is just go out there like. I'm the better player you're not gonNA. Stop Me. I'm not going to be a ball hawk. I'M NOT GONNA play in a way that the ball stops with me. We aren't able to play our offense is a t but at the same time in certain situations. I don't care who you are. I don't care WHO's trying to stop me here. Come the see what you've got and he needs to play a little bit of a chip on the shoulder and again not in a way that takes away from the team but in a way that says has his confidence even a little bit of healthy cockiness and I think that'll help him elevate his game so whatever dating I record together and talking about him Danes. Not really high on on him in some of the guys that we kinda right with a peace through hoops kind of have mixed feelings on him so I said I think he can be the leads league's leading score more than what's this career fight against that number thirteen think he makes I would put it in the range of five. Are you close to where I am or you. Closer to where others I hear from in my circle are we are just like I don't know Glenn. That's really you know what's in his paths. I'm a little bit lower on him. I think he's really good. I think he could be high efficiency supplier on a good team. He has potential to be anything. He wants to be this league for me. The question is does he have the DNA to be a star player player on a good team. That's my question. I'm not saying he can't but it's yet to be inserted. Yeah I am going to be very telling just because I do think Kyri kind of cramped his style L. as much as any other player on the team. WE'RE GONNA talk about Kimba being in place essentially the third elite point guard that Brad Stevens has had in their apologies marcus smart fans. I love his to play in the team. That is just the way he'll embrace defensive assignment. There's like a all star level point guard but you know I. I think that it's going to be a pretty big season for him..

"I think he has a chance to be to be a top three or four player on a team but it's going to rely I on whether they can get the right guy to really be the top of the roster and the guy who initiates the offense and puts tons of pressure on the opposing defense and I don't see that guy I on the roster right now. It's going to be hard to to add a player like that. In the next one two seasons until Kinda just elaborate on the point a little bit in terms of we draft the gals bridges you better be saw the point guard position and in order for his developmental plan to be kind of set up for success excess and with Kimba. I think they're reviewed byles bridges being oh yeah he can come in and really feel a nice role on a team that has elite office of creation on the roster experienced office creation. I think about what the Path Aaron Gordon has gone down in Orlando where he's never really developed any kind of elite part of his office of gay because there's been no stability and no real upside at the point guard position. They're overpaid didn't work out L. for Peyton went from starting to reserve to starting depending on who was the coach in what part of the year was in stuff in Gordon probably would be a lot for the down. The Path had there been more league play and so teams that are rebuilding now Zach Lowe on his podcast Castle Kevin also mentioned article. I I don't remember the outlet I'M GONNA Guess Star Observer where Bits Cup check. I think Jay's Abrego one or both we're Kinda expressing some surprise that can made on. Ba and this was a lot more expensive because of what he'd been qualified for in terms of overall earnings that seem pretty bogus to me also here last year and is held a pretty high regard but even if that's the case you have to know that if Kimba leaving and you have guys that are more secondary office of players that are in critical years development. Maybe need a little bit better than took Terry Rozier at that position I again again. I look at Aaron Gordon. We kinda talk about other teams as well when that's just lacking and so that's you know you're hiring bridges me but I like bridges as a player. I think he could be an like Lebron talks about star in your role. I think he can be like that good in a really pretty versatile role where he brings quite a lot to the table but he's just not going to be able to. Kinda create his own offense. That's disappointing to me and I think the other conversation here is we have all kinds of respect for Charlotte keeping combine through the end of the contract and trying to see if they could keep him the teams that are a little bit anxious when their star player has one year left on their contract and they can sense. It's that there's a real risk that player may leave and get nothing in return it the damage the damage to the franchises significant -nificant select when Paul Paul George was GonNa Leave Indiana Indiana office knew it and right or wrong for how that all came out they were able to trade him and in a deal that a lot of people thought they didn't get much but getting older depot and getting Simonas I mean my God odd they they actually brought in some real talent and all star in a guy who's almost borderline all star according to a lot of people and to me you know you know I I hate the teams have to abandon a player their best player with one year left for the contract but this is almost a case study. In what do you do if you know if you can't get Kimbe to sign an extension and you know what the question Shen is. What could they have gotten for him and we don't really know it's you know hindsight's twenty twenty but for the teams that choose to move a player their their star player with one year left of the contract when they can't lock that player up this is a perfect example of why teams move on when they allow when they have a player they would love to keep yeah and you know you and I saw that in the Tinley report the Hawks Lost Horford millsap getting nothing in return people want to say millsap was the assigning trait it was not sorry folks. We're not gonNA Kinda. Go down the rabbit hole but but when now Horford at millsaps never incubus sphere fear right superstar but when is an elite officer Creator it's going to be that much harder to refill that talent don't agree with where the rankings from ESPN that are coming out this week the top one hundred or stocking up but you can see shift at how just observers servers and evaluators value creation and guys that can play the point guard position because I was kind of doing the math on okay who hasn't come up yet in in in a slightly well. They have trained the top thirty or is he outside the top one hundred thirty because job ranson there I don't think trays top thirty player right now but also like we'll wears the Ngelo Russell. I don't think the Joe wrestles topics player right now. Joel Murray hasn't come yet and so ten percent ah of the top thirty from ESPN include trae young jewelry and Russell. I don't want to get into an argument about those guys specifically but that says something about the way the point guard position is valued a lot differently than it was even two or three years ago. I think people understand the impact to the way that the rest of kind of just just general officer workload and like give to go back to the magic have arnold is talking about the fact that getting eighty-five he didn't say it this way but I I'll say kind of what he made me realize is getting eight thousand five hundred ninety five points for Landau and a game is going to be a lot more work than for other teams and that's a team. That's chasing a playoff spot. We're Charlotte really isn't and it's just going to be so much work for this team and so you know to your point you you don't try now in. Charlotte Star's aligned in the worst way they were supposed to have the All Star game two years ago the the politically controversial Kinda bathroom bill that got bounced around in the State House their calls. NBA To basically move the All Star game and then it was host they last year. You're not gonNA trade. Kemba Walker in the hosting star game is this is just not going to happen so it would've been better off. You know we'll get into the political aspects of this. If that would've stayed on schedule then all sorts of what happened two years ago that they were just been less. That's pressure on all of that. I don't know this cup. Check kind of had the orientation to kind of navigate that anyway and Kim had so much equity in the franchise franchise and stuff but to just to your point you know the plan is there is no plan now they have to start rebuilding a plant even right now and that's the impact of losing ah campus talent losing guy who's cut a right at his apex in terms of you know athletically and efficiency and all that sort of stuff and Dan losing one of the best office craters in the League. It has an impact on guys that you've invested real draft capital mouse words as we talk about bleak mark because he's draft capital brought to take our first break and come back and talk about why he hasn't done so well and if the breathing room greeted by Kim possesses is going to Kinda create opportunity for him to do a little bit better but I are added. We'll come back and talk about leak. Okay to summarize. Things have gone well for leak my great. I think you and I were both pretty equally low on him. in this draft class. I think you and our like he's going to be overdrafted. I think both have been the twentieth so that sound about like where you had him. I think I had him late. Teens in thought he would be great now you you picked the right spot but one of those guys that if he moved up five or six spots it would be like justice maker. Miss big gap where other other guys you them up three or four spots to me was it was kind of a all or nothing kind of evaluation. I guess if that makes sense yeah and that was a really weird draft class for point guards or or lead guards because you and I are both concerned about Lonzo being drafted like a number one prospect and of course that's worked out kind of like we thought that'd be a good player a really useful player but just overdrafted Foltz obviously know and saw any of that coming Darren Fox didn't do any of what he's do now. Maybe a Kentucky you and I were not super x atmosphere. Would I were optimistic about the Mitchell so you know hit and miss like everybody somebody else in but it's just a strange strack. Wesley Guards and Muck was often talked about as a top five pick and he went top ten. I WANNA see when he neither man. He has not shot the ball. Well eleventh okay. so eight point nine points one point six assists just one point two turnovers thirty seven point six field goal percentage across across two seasons percentage thirty three and a half three point percentage. That's it's probably good enough for him. As much as he shoots off the dribble when you're when you're creating your own shot that you can get just in that thirty five thirty six percent range but two seasons thirty five hundred. That's probably okay from the three point line. So do you want to say that but really just not getting a shot to. Fox silly not moving. The needle enters efficiency at all like I said we are concerned about him. I the YOU WANNA kind of okay campus gone. They need more on unball creation. They need guys that can function at the point of attack that was stored of what was he was. Jesus has strength as a draft press. What coming in and you I WANNA say to yourself. Okay kipp gone. Maybe there's going to be more space. He's going to be a little bit more confident a little more empowered and play with more confidence now. The Kim has gone but bringing in Rozier doesn't speak volumes about Al Hornets Franchise feels about Mug so we talked about the fact that I don't of emails bridges like a top three guy teams building for their. I think it'd be awesome fourth guy a really really fit guy like I said the the epitome of guys starring role all I feel like with monk. They even have a decision to make now given where they're beat next year. They probably go ahead and pick up up his option for his next year which you have to decide by the time this season's start moving around the last few seasons. I think by by the first game. I don't think they picked up already. That's Abbey's men is that I think that a normal franchise if they weren't kind of just needing to just collect as many young guys as possible and tested them and give them a chance to play a nor franchise will be like scratching their head on. Do we want to you know pick up that option for the twenty twenty twenty one season but man everything I was worried about is here now Schwartz fans. They won't say say lack of opportunity. You could probably make a case that that's a factor but then I'd want to point at one other thing that would make me feel encouraged you know and I just don't see it so we're not trying to beat up on the Huntersville also trying to be honest analysis and I I was I obeyed as well hoping shocks me this year but when I look for kind of a factual reason to be optimistic about him. I just can't find one. Can you so I could find one okay innocent. It's not a great you know Iraq in terms of hanging your hat on it you know doc but I I could find one.

"We're going to beat and basi something that western conference landscape there like oh. We're not configured to do very well calling this match up or that matchup might do the right thing. I would say like portland like portland would be kind of tough for them. Mike you the two smaller cards. Are you going to have going to have and paul. George guard them like if i don't think they're portland's necessarilly threat to knock them off but it is when you have this like embarrassment of riches you you can kind of get a little bit selfish and really start specifically looking at maybe golden state's a better example of of what they would what they would want to look at like a team that could really be a threat <hes> but <hes> but yeah i would assume that's what they will be looking at as they assess your what is our path to the championship who could be in the way and how how do we counter for that yeah and you think about who defends yokich. If they get into with denver you can trust you box to start in the primary guy on him. I love what herald has become but he's not an awesome defender value offensively defensively he. I think he's a bad. I think it's fair to say it was bad defender took him in good that he might be helped out by playing against paul george alongside paul george and this year but if you if you watch much hero ploy last year i would not say he was even approaching an average defender in when i watch last year i often said to myself well this. This is working really well. Offensively 'cause they're playing seeing louise placed so fast so decisive in pick and roll that they really use a lot of energy office of lii and then the the player every player does have a limit on how much energy they can expand on each end of the court and maybe that's maybe i was cutting into much slack but he he could be a bad defender career will be the case but again. You're gonna go into a series against yokich narco what he's back now. He's not the dynamic playmaker obvious that you could use but he's just a guy that will lean on on your big for thirty two minutes. Do you sign up for seven games of that. You're putting a toll on your guy so i think that this team in some way adds a center and it's it's funny that the lakers lakers got so desperate with the bookie injury that their test driving dwight you know up until you know no which is to me just kinda wild lebron consumes enough oxygen and things like that that maybe dwight won't have the oxygen to kind of be the normal dwight.

We'll see but i cannot not see the now that we've talked. I cannot see the clippers starting game one of the postseason with there being here. I just can't see that happening. Stephen adams it could be could be an interesting one. I mean they do. I mean it's not just lou williams. They have like they have harvest. They have those like middling salary ellery guys where they could where they could make a move to like to stack up enough cash to be able to bring back a twenty.

"That they are going to be be like the surefire second best team in the east. I think that the second most likely team to come out of the east and go to the finals but i'm i don't know in the regular season when they're going to be messing around dinking around at lineups and management to sleep and everything like i'm not i'm not betting on them being a elite eastern fifty three and a half says you're going to be one of the very best teams in the entire m._b._a. During the regular season i i'm taking the under same same and again. I think the priority is the postseason what ought be shocked to see them. Make a semi serious acquisition at the deadline as well. We'll have captured right in front of me so i can't talk through what the scenarios are but i'll be for instance analysis. We thought clippers last year of very surprisingly forty forty eight thirty four eight loss to the warriors and six games and i think the clippers pushing them six games was a lot of what contributed to the warriors ultimate the mayes and to kind of circle back and loop back to what we were just talking about the raptors road big lineups to the championship last year and with with a lot of success and they would even play in the postseason goal debacle in saxon times. That's a massive three three five <hes> yeah sixers will do that but the clippers pushed them six games on offense defense nineteenth reading <hes> thirteenth <hes> sacrificed a lot of defense by how they play offense and the pace that they played with and they would just overwhelm you with points a four stretches especially when it was like we're talking about minute players lost a shake guiltless alexander and paul george trade wilson chandler are taught garrett temple meals dosage in various thornwell bias. If i missed any one is only because when i was looking at last year's roster couldn't remember who was actually on the roster at the end of the season so many chains are connected last season obviously with the bioterrorist trade and with salmon going the l._a. Additions hawaiian paul george the the the big fish mohawk liz will help cohen paul george. I think in a way that a bit other bigs on the sixers roster could help with horford ebeid's not playing because i'm going to be a little surprised well. I think they've already announced george not going to be fully ready to go to start the season. I don't know if he'll be inactive or be to not sure what that'd be but you know. I was limping around the entire postseason. I haven't heard a peep about his injury status. We had to have any kind and quite hard get information out of his any player and then you know when a player goes to a new team it becomes a little harder for the media information because if a player is coming back to the team the media has their connections and their information sources and things like that just a little bit easier for you know that we get to that information so i.

"The coach or a fan of the seventy sixers seems like this team would give me migraine headaches constantly because you'd think about ballot. There's just so many factors like all of this that load management to this guy and this guy and integration and simmons and embiid <music> personalities. It's like oh my gosh. It's a it's a drama.

It's it is a chess game. It is all it is all chess game. It's not just hey let's go out and try and win the most games in the eighty two game season and then try and win sixteen more on the regular season like no. It's not there is a strategy to getting through you all of it and when you've got old guys injured guys divas it gets way harder to do all that it does and we did see a lot of drama and now it's interesting to see in boston. How much does the drama god because career moved on or how much <music> of some of that sticks around because horford there yeah i presume horford had some impact on it would have been bigger than it was had been on the roster because he just stabilizing in guy for team and now philly with all of the drama. We've seen does horford. Come in and tamp down or is it too big. You know we'll we'll see but i think i think he's a lead by example guy man. I don't think he's a tamper down. It's like i mean just having had taj gibson around. I see him taj gibson and al horford very similarly wired and is being around taj gibson through all the jimmy butler crap in minnesota. It's taught taj didn't tell people what to do. He just did what he did and some people some people follow but it's kind of on the other players to follow. He's not gonna like slap them into this shape and i i my guess would be that horford similar yeah the one thing i would say a little bit more active than not that you're calling pass up but i think that lead by example as a little uh-huh viewed as more of a kind of a leadership style when you're taking losses when you're working your amidst diversity is very good for the team. He brings the positive liberty. He brings the energy. Whatever else starting down on himself he does bring that and so that way and losing frustrates professional athletes probably more than any other you think may happen. Maybe injuries obviously a hard for teams things like that but he's good for that but two questions hit real quickly we'll go to the clippers side of things and <hes> we'll take our first at break. Come back and talk about perimeter shooting in then who takes the jimmy butler all this year and take shots at the game so quick break went back to hitler's okay so <hes> not a ton of shooting of part of that's going to happen with any lineup. It hasn't non shooter. You're playing point guard..

"You'd think so i i saw out here as well. Did they have to go back in that was they needed to get off of crab. Remember that they need to get off of crab and that was the primary mary motivation of it and they did it like a week before the draft because they were trying to carve out. They knew they knew it was coming. They knew they needed x. Amount of dollars and it was like the the first real car that got him going. Yes they gave up to future firsts but they got off of allen crab. Which was you know arguably one.

I'm not gonna kill myself on defense for twenty five thousand team. They were forty-three winds season fifth seed. Were play alan from start to finish that year clearly and the last few years that was obviously listen not in the making so we'll see if it's solely an effort thing or not because he's heading towards what should be one of the stronger teams in the eastern <hes> conference last year if they'll be top three or so brooklyn fans obviously hope that that's the case but yeah it's interesting to me.
