"We call that the lady gaga fifteen oscars where she did that performance of her song from the hunting ground which was not a great song But everyone kind of mr members it winning over. But sam smith won that year for this for the specter song But then lady gaga got her oscar too so i guess it all worked out in the end but i think you're right that lake the ideal song is something like shallows or falling slowly or something like that. Where like there's a beautiful performance at the at the ceremony itself. It's a song conical. Identify with that film. And it's a song that feels like caught up in the plot of that film. Yeah absolutely and even better if you can have the actual actors singing it. I mean that's not always the case. I don't think with usa vic. Rachel mcadams singing probably because committee but when can do that like you could shallow. I mean that was the indelible moment of glory and selma is not as a credit song. Like john legitimacy actually common in in he might be But they you associated with the movie it has the spirit of the movie kind of tied up in it And the same with like sky fall leader. Those songs i think. Remind you of the film itself rather than feeling just kind of like something that safe put in there to send you out of the imaginary theater where you watch these movies because you wash them all home hundred percent and at least those are movies we all know and heard of and were part of the oscar conversation whereas you can't say that with all of the songs on the shortlist i will say for a on that note that in the black messiah song I think has a really good fits in the vibe of the movie like it feels like a period song Of all the credit songs they listen to to kind of figure out which one of these i wanted to like root for. I thought that was stood out a little bit about the others. I liked it. I liked it a lot. I thought turntables was okay to monae song. I think from all in fight for democracy. It wasn't particularly substantive. I thought but it had a had a good beat podcast which may be enough these days. But but i like fight for you. I think that would that would be a good choice. I don't. I don't think it's gonna win. I have a weird feeling who civic is win. But but we'll see i thought we were all going for a for leslie on jesus from one night miami which the these small but significant problem with the songs so many of them have made it work fight for you show me your soul speak now like all the titles kind of feel like they bleed together That the lesbian junior one is called. speak now. And it's a. It's a lovely song. But i think the trick without one that happens in a lot of music by is says that. It's not the same cook song that is very famous that actually in the movie. And it's just. It's not as good song which is not to insult that song but it's tough that you can't vote for the song that really does to find that movie at the end. I feel it gives us. It would be a sideways way to recognize how powerful it is when leslie juniors things sam cook well but you know similar to you must love me thinks. Yeah you can't give change is gonna come an oscar so you do the next best thing and i feel like sometimes an an actor is nominated for their acting and also for song the lady gaga. That happens sometimes. They wind song consolation prize. I'm going to say this. I think i have this right. Because like i've said this on this show repeatedly as far as i know mary. J. blige was the first person to be nominated for original song and Acting oscar at the same year Because she wrote her song for mudbound and then lady gaga the following year and then cynthia revolt did it again the next year. So it's like a weird micro trend that has started so leslie. Junior could very well carry. That torch forward was barbara not nominated. I don't know if barbara was a songwriter. Because you have to be the writer of the song. She was on the mir with two faces. But i don't know she was nominated for best actress. She probably wasn't. Yeah that you won an oscar for that song is born okay. Hold on them and in fact check myself on among among the wikipedia page. Oh yes she wanted a second academy award for nominated for actors for sars born though. That is a great question foundation. We appeal she was not. Barbara's not nominee for best actress for stars born. That's what happened. Oscar.

"A robinson. Welcome back joanne. And we missed you last week. Hi katie But the twins that were missing richard. This week he's gone but joining us instead. We have a special guest. No one could tell. I know you guys. So i was going to let you introduce your credit since we brought you in here because you had a viral thread about the best original song category. But i don't think that's how you make. Your living is tweeting. The original song category right now yet but that was so popular industry here. No i'm i'm a freelance film critic. I have been writing at washington city paper in. Dc for the last seven years also can be found at the guardian and polygon and the economist in places like that and do these do these lectures virtual actors. Now i smith sony and associates down in dc. As well i have one coming up on the oscars. So i'm deep in it at the moment and looking forward to chat more about this topic. Museum quality oscar espinosa. That is what we ask for in our guests So we as we said. Last week we recorded before the oscar shortlist came out and then it's probably came almost a bigger topic than i anticipated like. The shortlist happen every year. But i think the way that word season is slow like everyone was really eager to talk about it and Original song as almost become a tradition kind of became a flash point for it. So we're gonna get into that. With noah who has a lot of history category. We're gonna talk a little bit more about judaism the black messiah which we got into last week on this now on. Hbo max and at the end of the episode. We have an interview. I did with tahara hime. Who's nominated for a golden globe for his performance in the martinian. So we'll talk a little bit about that movie before the interview. But i okay so no you follow the oscars a lot but bus original songs shortlist last week really got you worked up What wha- what was your initial reaction to seeing the original song shortlist last week. My initial reaction was. I hadn't heard of several of the films. I had not heard of mr soul or giving voice or belly of the beast. I'm a film critic. I don't see everything. I don't know everything But the fact that there are three films. I had never heard of is not a good sign to me because the oscars are supposed to be elevating. That are good. And maybe people don't know about but best original song particular ends up with these films. That are under remarkable. I haven't seen them so. I can't say for sure. They have songs over their closing credits. That really have nothing to do with the film except thematically often sung by or written by a famous popstar to me. This is very anti cinema. This is something that should be in. The grammys not at the oscars. If you're going to do it. This way. And i think the oscars should be honoring songs that play integral roles within the film and there were so many opportunities to do that this year and they just left a lot of those on the cutting room floor and opted for these. No offense to these people. But john legend diane warren written songs. We've all heard before or have not heard the actual song. 'cause you've never seen the movie but the version of that song exactly and we should say that this is in some way plays itself out every year like you. Have you know some years for the category or another is like you get a sky fall you gotta let it go and then some years you get a whole bunch of anonymous songs but this year does feel especially glaring. Partly because of cova probably. Because you're just not getting as many like there's an a busy musical. There's all kinds of stuff that might have qualified that that didn't come out But it does feel like especially trying hard to miss the point this year totally agree and to me. Like i get riled up. When i look over the history of this category and i think it's kind of obvious when you look at any particular year. What song from a movie is the song. We're all going to remember in five or ten years and very often. That song is not nominated at all and almost all the time. That's on doesn't win as you said. There's a few counter examples. You know shallow one. Remember me from cocoa. Nobody's going to argue with that. But i don't do you want me to run through a few just a few examples because i think it's it's worth noting just how wrong they have gone in this category over the years. It'll really wake me up. I'll get angry and feisty we're going into outrage mode good all right just a few glasgow from wild rose. Yeah that was last. Year is big big scandal. I know a lot of people didn't see this movie but you don't honestly the song is so beautiful. It's it's hard to imagine people didn't go for this but it does work incredibly well within the context of the song in fact it kind of plays the same role that who cevik plays in eurovision which was nominated and thematically. It's kind of the same song i mean. This is a person singing about their hometown on a big stage. Kind of coming to grips with the place that they're from and what that means for them. So i find it weird. The glasgow is not nominated and hasidic was but some other key omissions over the years. Nothing from sing street in two thousand seventeen street. We are proceeding street on his podcast. Please mr kennedy. From inside lewin davis. It's goofy song. But i actually think it's a pretty good pop song and i don't understand why that wasn't recognized And obviously that has become a mean and very well remembered. Nothing from scott pilgrim. I find that kind of strange. These are all movies that are like built around musicians and have original songs in them and they're good movies. They're not necessarily all oscar movies but they're just they're just left out of the conversation completely and of all the stuff that i tweeted about the two that got the most likes. I guess were pop. Goes my heart for music and lyrics and the waltz from before sunset and to me those are two of the most unimpeachable selections they should have one hundred percent but nominated him probably one and They were either. I will say it's got pulled defense. Movie seems to exist. Its powers derived from the extent to which people try to ignore it and diminish it at the time and it has only grown in power as a classics got an oscar nomination that might have like really ruined. It's crud Getting the nomination is better in the long term and particularly with that film yes and trying to figure out why one the original song oscar. The year that that thing you do is nominated because you know like i feel like we keep having these conversations about fictional bands and movies. It comes up like every so often and like that thing. You do always seems to be the song that people are like this is. This is the best fictional band song in a film that well joe at the winner was you must love me from vida assault.

Looking at the Character of God: The Womb of God?
"We're talking about access thirty, four last two episodes and we're going to jump into into the thick of of this verse, which is five attributes of God that we want to talk about and the first of those attributes is the is compassion and Chris you wrote a script for asset by will project forward, stay compassion and you're gonNA take us on a bit of a tour guide. Yeah that's right I'm excited I'm excited to and you guys get to geek out as hard as you want, and then I'll just slow you down. Like that might be necessary. So big picture. This verse is the first, Time God like sits back and described his character in the Bible and other big picture, which is in previous episodes of the series was exploring the golden calf narrative where the description appears. So God's describing himself after being faithful to his people after they broke the terms of their marriage covenant like on the Altar, we're like right after going down the alter. Or maybe after signing the papers yes. Okay. So that's that's context and the first word God describes himself with. Compassionate. Yeah. So this is when Y'all as revealing his glory to Moses and he says Yeah Away Way Y'all way compassionate and gracious slow to anger overflowing with Loyal Love and faithfulness I love talking about this verse because it's all about the character of God and. To my mind, this is this is like one of the most important things that we can try to think about try to understand you know who got his how he views us when we fail or when we're suffering what he's like in the midst of that I just think it has a huge impact on our lives how we view ourselves and how others you know there's an interesting analogy descend day to. Day relationships where if you're meeting someone for the first time and you don't have any context for them, it's hard to read your learning how to read what they say do because you don't have any back story for their character right and so the same like word or expression or even tone of voice can be taken completely differently based on what you know of that person's character whether it's much or little and. I think. That's so true of how people encounter God's portrait in the Bible God's have complex character in the Bible. But most of us probably come with some kind of base line that we've gotten from the Bible or more likely from somewhere else and then it's hard for us to actually let the Bible Depict God and let the depiction constantly the agenda. These verses are super important because they're actually. Giving us that baseline context so that everything else God says or does is somehow always an expression of these five traits in some way. Yeah. I've been thinking a lot about our picture of God how significant it is but also how I think a lot of us aren't really aware of how we picture got it's like a it's almost just a subconscious assumption so you know and we can ask this. Question later in the podcast but I've been thinking a lot about do i. do I really like picture got in this way? How do I know if I do or I don't you know what are the indicators? So maybe that's a question for later but yeah, I think this is super important to think about how we view God and how he is us. So this very first word I think is. Also a really a significant word for developing this picture and it's compassionate. The Hebrew word is row whom and it comes in a verb form noun form an adjective form but the really fascinating thing about all of them is that they're related to the word Rackham, which is the Hebrew word for womb. So that's so cool. The word compassionate like if it was anglicized, it'd be like, whoo me or something. Like. God is some womb-like in has characteristics womb each is that how that word comes across in Hebrew wish I don't know I mean as a non native Hebrew speaker you can hear it with the letters rekkem womb Roya, whom right capacity you could associate them and you're saying that's not a coincidence though that those words are so similar right of maybe a root. Yeah. The root is the three letters of all of these words, the Noun Rackham and the Noun Rahim. So that's a womb and compassion, and then raccoon is the adjective or the passive participle, and then the verb Rahm to show compassionate deeply feel. So they're all built on these three same letters. So yeah, there's definitely an association there. That is really cool. Yeah to picture God. I think and that's the word that's just the root of the word. But I think the meaning and context also draws out this nurturing image even more.

Palatial home meant to resemble the caves where the Great Gurus of the past had found enlightenment in the caves. He made his female devotees surrender their bodies before marrying them off to his loyal mail to tease. All of whom mindlessly followed his orders. The accusations were similar to those in the anonymous letter published back in two thousand two but now even darker aspects came to light apparently Gr- meet called the Mass Rapes. Ma Fees and order word for the active. Pardon he truly believe that by forcing himself on others. He was giving them a blessing. His tactics worked to psycho sexually condition. His followers cult theorist Jagna knowledge writes that the power cult leader has over another person increases as the demands. Become more intimate. Especially sexually the more group dictates. The sex lives of its members the more control a leader tends to have over them. Grammy told his female devotees that an intimate relationship with an enlightened guru bent. They were close to a state of godliness but in the end it was all a type of demented loyalty tests in which the sod V had just see her body in order to be seen as pure by the Google and the Darah then in December of two thousand fourteen details about Gore meets. Mass Castrations were finally published. It became clear that his female followers weren't the only ones forced to endure such horrifying loyalty tests at that time. At least four hundred cases of forced castration had been identified Gore meet left behind an army of victims but soon he'd be forced to pay for it coming up. Gourmet is finally punished and now the conclusion to the story for decades Gore meet ROM Rahim posed as a humanitarian leader of the Dera. Sacha Sada while psychologically sexually and physically abusing legions of his followers finally in two thousand seventeen after years of legal delays the fifty year old face the consequences of his actions in July of that year. A special court of the Indian Central Bureau of Investigation ordered hearings into allegations that the guru had raped his female devotees. It had been fifteen years since the first sexual assault allegations were published in a local newspaper. Apparently Gore meets attorneys had run out of tactics to stall the investigation. Now he would have to answer for his crimes. The tension in the air was rife as Gromyko was led into the courthouse. Surrounded by fanatical supporters. Prosecutors argued their case through all July August every day members of the Dera protested and disrupted the proceedings reporters said it felt like a war zone on August seventeenth. The two sides concluded their arguments national security forces were placed on alert throughout northern India and the judge declared that he would have his verdict ready by August twenty fifth. When the day finally came Gore meet Rom Rahim was found guilty of rape within minutes punch Kula India was embroiled in riots followers swarmed local authorities launching. Molotov cocktails and vandalizing buildings. The jail were was being held was surrounded by paramilitary forces prepared for a deadly standoff by the next morning at least forty one people had been killed and more than three hundred were injured and many more were arrested. It was later found that Gromyko had orchestrated the riot. Prior to his incarceration. He'd urged his followers to kill anyone that stood in the way of his freedom. Apparently he believed that if he was found guilty. Everyone should have to pay. Unfortunately this kind of violence is not uncommon when cult members are brainwashed by such a tyrannical and manipulative leader. Dr Alexandra Stein. A social psychologist writes that. When the life of a cult member is suddenly up rooted they often cling to their beliefs even more fervently than before jailing or meat raw. Mahim meant a complete disruption to the lives of millions of the Dera since the guru provided their access to goods and services removing him also took away their livelihoods the resulting fear quickly morphed into rage and lead to violence. The danger meant that Gra meets. Judge had to fly to the prison where he was being held three days after the riots there on August. Twenty eight th two thousand seventeen. He could deliver the guru sentence in relative safety away from the courthouse. While Gra meet sat watching Sullen and shackled. The judge sentenced him to twenty years in jail. Ten years for each of the two counts of rape sources present at the sentencing reported that Gore meet appeared to be a broken man that day as the sentence was pronounced he burst into tears and begged forgiveness afterward. He sank to the floor and refused to budge screaming that he had been framed..

"And there's a lot of weird I don't know if it's bad. Ah there are problematic. Don't buy from them. So what's problematic spending a hundred dollars on the same thing that you can buy five dollars worth so neutrogena great holler okay good. There's so heireann a gas yes it is lake is everywhere everywhere. Just look at the label. Exactly don't know what it does so we'll just like Google. There's definitely some better skin care. A person out there whose like explained the benefits of Arctic acid. Her name is probably as anyone is on is on a different sort of acid. Now new commercial right. Yeah it seems like retinol just in just one day she just can be like acid and we're going to be like okay. Everyone is a lot of this stuff. Stuff is just like total package ing and marketing and everything is like that. Yeah so I love that when. How old were you when you discovered this lipstick? And how many shades did it take till. Yeah I was like this year's year. Okay yeah because I again like. I love a nude lipstick. I used to wear a lot of color but then I was just like wait. I don't. This is exhausting And also like I had been using multiple different ones I I was using Lolita by cap on. This is good duke for for that okay and which is very popular color so like twenty eight dollars it's insane And also like it dries out really quickly the and And then it's also just a good duke for a few of the MAC lipstick Worl- and it's a little darker than that but You know I again just was like why am I buying this. If it's sure literally one what's the texture of it as it like. I use them room. She in that I I love. This is more of a creamy like. I don't know how you describe this. Maybe like a Creamy Matt Lake. It definitely says Matt but it's a little creamier than that. I'll show you here. Look Oh that's nice. Yeah and again. Like if you're blooding really totally so now this is like a nude for you. Yes what's your suggestion for like anybody. Any skin color going for this sort of this. Same Ray idea for that depending on near like skin tone I'm a fan of something that just adds a little bit of depth to your. You know your skin tone so anything that anything for me being If I went even a little lighter than this I would look like. I was wearing foundation on my lips. This has of course because this house like a pink or Brown or undertone It brings actually my lip shape out so I think just look for something that is you know works for you. It takes a lot go to trial and error too. I just WANNA be clear. I was going to say that the big the big tip would be. I would say to people if you don't know where to start. Go to Sephora. Yes hell let them tell you what expensive lipstick to buy. Yup then go yeah and read thank me. There are so many people who if you are like. I really like this national lipstick or I like this. You know they're doing that work. Totally there's so many resources on here the dupes on on that color. and Yeah I I think that it just whatever works for you the other thing I would really suggest is a lip liner like. Do not underestimate the power of a lip liner. The I'm thinking about and just day to ninety eight. How no not is there no you don't you have to find one like just is basically the same same color so that you can go in the morning show not even shadow just shape your lip okay and then you fill in and you do it once? That's IT I don't look like it's nineteen ninety nine. I look like it's one thousand nine or are you wearing lip liner. Okay okay Although like I feel like they say you know what I'm talking about ever being the nineteen ninety nine. Look Yeah you don't have it on right now. Yeah I mean like I can't say that hasn't been the case before But no no it's it's it again not a need to have it's nice to have But I think that like I also the good thing about this too is is this works as a blush. So if you WanNa just DAB this literally put on him to on her yeah like on tier if you're in a rush if you're in most. Can you say that about most lipsticks though. Because now that they're coming out with all those sticks letting some like. I'm actually surprised that big makeup has exposed themselves like that interesting. Yeah because they're just they're losing out on some money but definitely this has been. I think something that you can put on your lips. Your cheeks. Some women actually put it on. There is sometimes. Let's just smeared all of our ready But yeah it's it's like again like if this is I think just the one thing I like to have in my bag and it makes me feel like at the end of the day if I am feeling just shoveled and like I'm going somewhere I I live state Barkat. I'm like okay I feel fine. It's like I feel like I look okay and with that we're going to take a quick break and we'll be right back okay. And we're back with czar him and she's telling us about her favorite lipstick which costs five dollars. Another perk to a five dollar lipstick is that you can lose it and not WanNa kill yourself when you do one hundred. I did once when I bought so. My favorite lipstick is Mac It's eighteen dollars now. I'm curious to see what the five dollars and and I lost it once and I wanted to say I have never lost this lipstick. I have been handled. That's how it works. Every single extensive lipsticks six or products. That I have carried and my bag and it's because God hates me yet but it's it's that's exactly what it's really truly remarkable. You'll never ever lose your cheap lipstick. Your target Sunglass. None of those things will ever go missing your hundred dollars sunglasses. They're gone broke there in the drive. Glad nobody this it's true it's the most tragic thing. Wait so tell me about your foundation. What I brought so this is So I bought the revlon photo. Ready like like powder that goes over like You know setting powder this is also this is sixteen dollars. But this is one of those things that is like ninety eight dollars at Sephora and I started using using it because I was in a pickle when I was on vacation and forgot whatever setting powder had been using that was ninety-eight whatever and I was like this just looks like I guess it would be my skin tone. I have pretty fair skin and also have like really multicolored skin in that lake. I have a little bit read in my cheeks and I also like have a zone that like flares up when I have like one little bit of stress right side of me and this really helps like give me some. Even the thing own thing that'll say about like drugstore makeup. That's hard is like not being able to test especially when it comes to. Yeah so you could go home and be like what. Yeah and it's also awkward. Return suggestions because you're like wait like Coca Cola here to Tampons and my laundry detergent and just make up the didn't work we can. You remember an excellent. That's that's a great thing about old done Sephora is that they really encourage like taken home if it doesn't work like they don't look at you weird when you come back and your waist and quick. I said this yesterday my email to you. Quick another five dollar product yet. I love there is a five dollar Mascara from this company called essence okay. I think it's Essen sentencing and and you can only. I think you can only get an ULTA. Let me just back you know. There's only by altering the city which which is so crazy crazy and I think it's essence. Yeah and it's a in a pink bottle and it is the it's it's called. I love extreme. It's four ninety nine at Alta and it is the best Mascara really every Emma glossy last blast like I. I prayed the Paul. Okay yes glossy say Mascara is grey. I just like like A. I think you'll like this Mascara Skara. This will do the job and it doesn't matter like how expensive of Mascara I'm using this one always looks better and staying. Hang on hold on yeah. This is like on every list. It's like I tested like these people. Everybody has written about how they're trying this five dollar Mascara and it's changed their life so you should absolutely absolutely go to Ulta. Check it out. It's pink bottle they'll know and then they also have like different deviations of it. Okay like do I question. What's in it? Yeah Army luscious still-intact. Yes right I think that you have to pick and choose like I spend I love I like it. C- C- Cream. I'm like the only thing that makes my face look like like. I'm not coming off of like a rash like dermatology. We've talked about this at at the dermatologist. And like you know you find a product that works through great. The problem is it's expensive. It's not to go through a Tuba month. That's like a forty dollar thing and I also mixed two different shades. Because that's what works for my skin and and so then I'm always looking for like cheaper options because I can't go to Sephora and not everything you buy can be fifty no they can't I mean or else you're just they we were just talking about this. We live in this culture like that makes us feel like we have to go into four. And like if you're not spending one hundred and fifty dollars doing you have bad skin. Yeah or just like you're doing your makeup wrong and so I think it's really hard to go in there and be like way like actually don't need this and put put things away and and really liked practice that lake because again also there employees are trained to be like you need it like this is changing right like and you know I like to be fair though. Some of those things are and if you can figure out like there are things that I buy that are like one hundred dollars one hundred twenty dollars and it's because I have seen results from them and I'm like yeah well I I unless right but I also washed my face with nine dollar like face wash in the shower. Everything you buy can be. You should be the one hundred ten this podcast because I only swear by like recommendation. Yeah I had to have somebody told me about. They tried at at worked for that. Swear by it the idea of me going on the Internet and like reading other people's Sanders reviews. Yeah like how dare you know. ooh Can't do it. I will listen to my friend saying my friend said this thing is incredible. Change Your Life really evangelizing way. I I will I will go get it. Go get that day. Yeah Michio after the same way. And that's why really trouble trusting hotel reviews restaurant views. Because I'm like I've said this before it's like I don't know. Oh you know what kind of person I don't know what you were looking for in this hotel experience that you would give something to snarly and it's the same thing with five stars. It's like okay but I don't know you don't here bar below ground right. Oh I don't know exactly. I have no idea what your expectations are where your bar is like what you're used to bar is great for the record the struck the the bar is strong here. I think getting stronger but also I the beginnings of Yelp but when something gets too big people only go on yelp now to complain so if you look you're only going to see the bad times people might not be here.

Yeah it was amongst illustrious group of great skin so I think We had talked about you or sort of on you. I didn't know what to bring right for a little bit because I've lived my whole life with like a bunch of just like weird Kylo like combination Asia just given. I grew up in an immigrant household.

Sure who are you people and why are are you buying Or just even make up right like it was it was You know the most kind of like insane experience Syrians and understanding Things that it was it was great like I. I got to actually learn and understand things I should spend money on things. I should not And like really really like Mary. Those two things and feel confident about the decisions I was making like I will absolutely by those forty dollar jeans from Zara but what I won't compromise Amazon is a good pair of shoes that I know are gonNA lash for like eight years is yeah figure out where you want to spend your money. You don't have to buy the expensive version of every right and and with makeup. Yeah I particularly feel like there's absolutely no reason why we should be spending that much money on makeup It is especially as women Something that we are literally kind of held to insane standard on if we do if we don't do it You know for for you know our our our queer and Trans brothers and sisters who are trying to kind of navigate the world. Yeah and and figure out how they fit into this culture of makeup Sometimes it's not as accessible The same for brought black folks so I I think Kinkel lot about you know makeup and I grew up in a house Where we weren't allowed to touch it until we were like seventeen? I I almost wish I was as I didn't know what to do with it so that my parents were like it's fine. You know when I was like thirteen or fourteen right like I wish I had kept me away from it because I looked looked like a disaster just like foundation like in whatever Shahab or let us where foundation but for the best but she would let us dabble in like eyeliner which was beer. Okay I like culturally appropriate okay But so there are like absolutely insane voters of may-like where I look like you know. I just took black paint and like the beginning coming up the millennium difficult for all of us But Yeah No I. I grew up in a household where like my mother was absolutely not buying US makeup makeup. She was like if you're getting it. I don't know how it is but that's I wanted more oriented sort of waste. Oh my gosh. My mom was like very strict growing up so she liked it a lot of shave until we were like ninth grade and so we were like the Harry Muslim kids walking around our Christian school. And I'm like a secret shave in the bathroom and come out like you have course I mean Gosh tell me Oh my God oh my God I would. I know well my debt. So my Mama's Mama's Irish and has basically no hair on her body and I inherited my dad's like darker aren't hairier side. What what what is your father? My Dad's like like Eastern Europe.

Mike's I always say like I go to that Geely showcase most years. It's a great place to see for me. It's a great place to see a lot of front office people. A lot of people are there and it's a good place going for few days but I always think about what would be really I think instructive you know the USA basketball has the you know the sixteen and eighteen seventeen hundred team eighteen and entertainment think Lakesha chefs though like shuttle those guys through like the national team but like sometimes they would come through Vegas when the national team would be practicing to sing in his. They'd be recruiting half those guys they come through and see Lebron at teaming which was fine like out of those high school teams may be one of those kids might ever play. AM At team or two. But most of them. I always said like when you're that age and you just think you're going to be a lottery. Pick and then you're going to get a MAC steal off of your rookie contract contract. I always felt like if he gave those guys a program and put them in the stands for two or three days of Julia showcase and go see that guy down there he was a number eight high school player in the country country and he went to this. ACC school and then turn pro. And then he was on the League in a year or two. Because that's how they would look at where they're standing are ago. There's ten guys out there playing who were as highly regarded because most guys are going to one way or another most guys go up G. League.

We have close to forty kids playing in our league. That were your top thirty. Highschool guys like Nausori Jalen McHugh Louis King Jersey. Jersey Kid This year we have Mario Charlotte Jersey kid play. Play to my son's school Blair. So you have you know we. We are now probably ten twelve. McDonald's all Americans You have those guys in becoming somewhat. Where even younger kids see you know guys is coming into the G.? League in having success their net almost being some art teams is like a right of passage like like last year in in San Antonio Lani Walker played more Jelly Games then he played. NBA Games you know so far You know is is is just how teams tried using you know you look at the finals last. I should like between Golden State in Toronto of the thirty players. Sixteen of the players had G. League experienced. Nick nurse was formerly Keiko so so nick coach like six hundred seventeen teams coast. We were ready to launch team.

"Last thing on the Olympics Reef you had you had done a lot of you've been on a lot of bad teams in the NBA before you got to the Olympic team you're on a rebuilding team An expansion team. I should say in in Vancouver. What was it like to to get around great players to be in such a competitive environment where there hasn't been that in Vancouver yet? Well so Iran couvert I was like I was a I was the oldest of a bunch of young kids I was probably an ad leppings. I was probably twenty twenty two and I was the oldest of a group of young kids trying to teach each other how to win and how to be competitive to your point and you know I go to I I get there and there. You have you know Alonzo Mourning Gary Payton Jason Kidd Alan Houston guys that have won and that have on a approach to the game that you know you see practice habits you see their work ethic Kevin Garnett. I mean we we would play. Well we play the one on one forecourt after practice before five of us like it would be almost like fights because no one wanted to lose. It was like I. I saw like a year or so ago. Like it was like putting circulated of it was like Kevin he won and he did win and is circulated like he has scored all the points. Like the Games. These were unbelievable. You know we would do it every day. But that level of competition I would like to talk to Jason and talk to Gary and at that point. I'm trying to figure out how to help my team in Vancouver be better and I would talk to them about how they saw the game how they their presence on their team and in I never forget like Jason would say to me like look. I'm GonNa Win Forty Games. I win forty one games I. I'm a kid I which means I know I'm GONNA win win like I'll win. We'll be five hundred eighteen in New Jersey Bob. I'M GONNA make a five hundred team now if we get some good play. You know if I get this this and this will be be you know we have a chance to win and that was a you know that was a different way of thinking that that was a terrible New Jersey team. He walked into watch which won twenty games before but he he said at the press conference with I was crazy then what their final and and and this is like before he you know he said that to me personally before that was like a different different way of thinking of like. That's the responsibility of a really good player of saying okay like I'M A. I'll make us a playoff team. I'll make a winning team now. If I get good player that Wanna come along with me. A we have a chance. Oh that was unbelievable that that experience for me. But what's your best cagey story from that Olympic. Summer my best story with him and so he and I the same age go back to high school. My best story with him is or my best. That sticks out with me with Kevin. Is this when we were young seventeen eighteen. We both played on hoops solid team. It was the first one was in Springfield and Kevin came late and Kebab Hurley was the coach Hurley. The coach And you know this is really right before Kevin Kevin announced that he was going to come into the NBA NBA. So he came with A. He came a couple of days late. We had practiced the club. The days put plays in and Co Charlie's culturally and. He's you know fussing and getting on everybody like I. He's our every day coach. So Kevin Kevin literally comes in. He has his coat on. He has like jeans on. He takes that stuff off in like you know at this time like Sean Ford and GM to Gaza on a yeoman stuff he puts his stuff on and he comes out and in practice with us. And you know at at that time. It wasn't the way it is now where kids by Muslim plays. You've played this other kid from somewhere ten times a summer like you'd never. We never played because each other and the thing with Kevin was even at that time like folks saw the passionate he played with an MBA. He played with that at seventeen eighteen years old like he came on practice. He didn't know any plays he hadn't been with us. He hadn't strategy done anything and for our half a practice. He played so hard. The pace a practice went from one place to like a new stratosphere. He was unbelievably. You know like I remember. He had a breakaway dunk. He took the ball like somebody who is trailing behind me like tossing back till like his team you know so like his maturity his intensity was like so high even at a younger age and like a depth. Why remember getting on the bus and thinking to myself you know so you still had that light bravado of like I'm better you know that day and just think like man play hard and I it and when you saw him like you know how much money may however many years later he was spilled out? Same Jevon Bob. Early told me that story about that practice this and you know he knew this Garnet kid was coming in and like you said you had been practicing a couple of days and he said I'm not GonNa let this guy just walk in and play early in the game. He has a practice. These guys are here. He is not gonNA he goes into the kid comes in goes and then he went up and down a few times and I said all right give give Garnett uniform. This guy is just like again like the the level you know like a guy can take the level from one place through a totally different place. Their person I think that Olympic team two guys. You around Alonzo Mourning K. G. A.. Ferocity about them. Your personality was is different. You compete hard. I I'd say I you know you play 'cause like they're like talking like an and people think they're like talking eighteen months to you like talking to for me. I I had to have you know a communist or a balance to be able to compete and keep my motion to keep You know keep my composure. And I think for like for those guys like they wanted to go somewhere like totally different and and it worked with him. You know my way you know you know worked for me and you see it you know you see now with different guys you just you just have different ways of motivating yourself and getting yourself going you you think back to your recruitment and what it was like a Georgia kid goes to cal and gets drafted and goes through the hoop summit and you know just meets these players who he's only heard about or maybe read about I don't want to Shrink Smith. You're not that Old Jack Smith with everything like making make streets. Missile was the biggest deal. That's right and and now your son debris he's going Iverson Virginia. He's a top twenty. Leave thirty national player. He's going through. He went through the recruiting. He's gone through the travel basketball circuit. He's plays at a high level elite high school level. How different is it to watch what it's become? The system has become and what it means to be a high level player versus when when you came out. which really wasn't that long? You know. I think the biggest thing now is like it's so much expectations on these kids. Like I was able to all of the things that I'm You know nobody around us like that story. I'm telling you would hoop summit was nobody with no. I don't remember him. Media Kennedy was live tweeting. There's nothing no Oh expectation. We did all of that in some you know just obscurity somewhat right and. I think you know everything that the kids now are doing and my son is you know you. He has an amazing game. It's you know it's it's everywhere and if he had also game it's is everywhere. We're analyzed and I I think that's a lot to put on young kids data groin developing and trying to figure out what they can and Taylor do To me that's the biggest you know they have. I think on the positive side. They have unbelievable accessibility to I never play. Play against you know I- level college players professional players. I didn't have access to this stuff. You know my first time having access to that was going to Colin Alan Planning as Chris. Mullin and Tim Rod Higgins and those guys like you know you can he can he can go down to the pier and you know in the summer and and you know oh tie jerome was there. Donovan was there and he can touching feeling those guys you know he'll slap them on the button telling me. Keep trying nestled stuff. I you know I. I didn't come from Georgia. I didn't I didn't have so all of you know that part of it I think as you know both kind of good and bad had a big differences. I think accessibility but then just the over analysis of kids such a an exposure of kids at such such a young young age. I don't know Sheriff if I had really any way to look up the numbers on this but maybe there is a way to do it but as as a Muslim playing in the NBA and playing during Ramadan What did that mean for your? How for that stretch of time I I was told that your numbers would actually go up? The vice. New Jackson did that. When I was in Vancouver? They were so they were really worried about me. Fast fasted And playing and I started pointing out there a couple of years he liked. Had someone go and I do the analytics on this is before showed showed that I was like more productive play better dorm Ramadan and for me. It wasn't really that big of the I've done it done it. From the time I was seventy eight years old fast ask from tell us seven. Eight years also really wasn't much of a To me it wasn't a hardship. I've grown up. You know watching guys like a king do it in in a you know in the finals in Admired him so to me was it was. It didn't really present the obstacle. I think that you know other people saw the things that I needed to do to prepare At the energy in that and so on and so forth but you know again my purpose and so forth I was fine with what is sitting meant or felt like to be a Muslim American a Muslim in America over these last several years. Here's the climate the all that has come with it. What's it been like for that community? What's it been like for you? Will you know again. I I don't know separation like I grew up hold a Muslim in America and I can remember from again like You know brought up in state like like Georgia wasn't being in a class. Where was no other Muslim kids? It was the one who had a name team that sound like mine. And my sister's There was no one else. Did you know dressed like my mother To you know planted it. NBA Now having children. You Know I. I can't remember time where my children didn't have other classmates that were Muslims businesses you know from Sacramento to you. Know New Jersey Right I think you know what what are all that has gone on all throughout my especially my professional sports career and timing the NBA. It is. It's it's required that I'm uh-huh thoughtful in in patient and explaining Islamic people It I think for all Muslims is required that you you have to kind of pull out of your shell in in in in your little enclave of community and be a part of the larger community to be able to tell tell you story. And and and Show your civility and in and and what Islam is about you know because if there's a different narrative level or someone is you know understanding differently as also you know your responsibility to explain what your way of life is about i. I think it's been net you know More more than anything. I you know. Fortunately I haven't you know from again I was I was in the NBA The adoring Nine eleven I've been through different rhetoric narratives throughout our Environment I haven't had a negative experience I haven't all of them have been teammates communities. He's fans inquisitive and questions as a young kid in Georgia. Like you said there's not another Muslim class. There's not another name sounds like yours and by the way like you're bigger than everybody else right like you're so like you're gonNA stand out Would you feel that when you walk into a classroom near young person. Well then you have a la- eleven brothers twin sister twelve you through your and your second oldest over the second oath So I have a little sisters loose of the same age as Moscow and my sister just committed to Notre Dame so she can go play for coach Moffitt of it another day okay. So there's a lot of us in basketball everybody's got been connected to basketball when we're another the What what was that like those a kid when you never? You don't always want to stand out when you want to fit in when your kid. What was it like to go through that in Georgia Georgia? Well look I think part of growing up is is is like going through those awkward. We all have those like awkward uncomfortable years. I think mine were like growing faster than you know. Probably my parents could keep up with buying me clothes and my growing and all sorts of things get to the point of having a funny last name now in in in some ways that kind of drove me to basketball. When it'd be good at it was it was a place where none of that other stuff mattered? I was I could. I could Kapiti. I was good enough here Yeah I was definitely like accepted there. They built a belt confidence and and other other other skills that have aided me through G. League calendar here Sharieff is. Close Up Julie Showcase in Vegas for Christmas right unbelievable. What's exciting issue about our showcase? If we decided we moved it around it was in Reno for its opposite. Visit Mississauga and Land Hall. Yeah Yeah but the last year last year we took it and we you know we took it to vegas partnered with MGM so who was in this in MGM Hotels air so it's like a one stop shop you get all of the top NBA President and General Manager. They're all of our teams..

"Sheriff your your career Dozen Years in the NBA All star. Jalen rose saw you here on the way in and he's been yelling twenty and ten at me all morning new. You're coming to. Nobody remembers to reef was twenty. Ten Guy You had one two thousand ten season at one eight nine eight nine rebounds those you know that last one's tough but your time and you came into the League in Vancouver and spent several years there before you went on to Atlanta and a couple of other places what was the NBA. We think back to Vancouver over in the NBA and being in there on the ground floor. You Know Toronto had come and to organizations that did it differently. Trying to bring in veteran players at the beginning when you're in a big country reeves and you and different philosophy in Vancouver. What do you remember about the city the NBA? There when you think back it really. Wasn't there very long. I mean so six seven years and I was there five years One City like been van injury like on believable. What are great? North American cities like unbelievable city. People there were great. Great to me. I grew up a lot either. I`Ma Emma Georgia key kid from Georgia and I went as far as you could go. You know from home one start. You know stop versatile for year and then you know going in the I I remember You know being drafted getting on the plane sitting next to my agent and ask him okay. So like where's Vancouver and played in the PAC ten PAC twelve. You know the impact on the year he said well next to Seattle. I said okay. I knew university I watched it. I said okay next to Seattle but like unbelievable city unbelievable experience in a Lotta ways we teach him folks about basketball and about the NBA Our like our stars were were known as that time Jordan Lakers Shack They were known in folks. Love the come out and see them. We hadn't we didn't get opportunity from Vancouver Grizzlies standpoint turn. Turn the community into Vancouver. Grizzly Tau is amazing season. I go to Toronto now and the amount of basketball and basketball highlights that are on TV just you know regular their team and and at that time I mean we we had you had to do all kinds of things just to get the highlights and updates from around the NBA on. You know normal you. You couldn't have like time you couldn't have direct TV to night so you see curling curling and hockey this so you had to like you know I do like figure out ways aged like sneak. Our our our league passing and things like that. Did people know when to chair earning. They were very educated about about the game. The game they just we had. We weren't able to raise to the level of competition that they became Vancouver Grizzlies Fares and now when we play Toronto. That was that was wonderful. That was you know we weren't able to get good enough to make it a real rivalry but they understood the game. You know the Jay Triano did radio I at the time right so he was at that time he was the biggest Canadian basketball well player to come from around BC. This is before his before. Nash So like very well. Educated about the game Passion for what a game but like I a lot of ways you can say now especially like a dog terro area more Montreal is coming now has no really you know burst out from a basketball standpoint. I think a lot of that is definitely the success of Toronto's done you Vince being there. But you know a little bit. We've had you know a few Kellyanne Linac you know few other server Soccer would with the kid went to Gonzaga him. His name is slipping my mind now but we had a few come from BC that were Big Time players yet. Your work ethic was legendary is a player and talked to. I talked to your former coaches there and in the off season you'd work route three times a day right an in season they would tell me you would get their way before anybody else. You would do skill work on the court before well before practice. Right it practice. Then you'd stay in shoot and During the season just regimen where I think people. You weren't the most your long. You're six ten six nine six this the day in the new NBA. But but you were you know. It's funny I look at that Olympic team you're on on a two thousand and thence and at Antonio mcdyess who could jump to the moon and did jump to the Moon and save you and Sydney tip and I wanna ask you about that I was. I was courtside for that But where did that come from with you The the desire to just be in the gym all the time and and become as skilled of the players were and this is this is probably like the time before for the little five skill development coaches so we had like a dad time people. Don't you know instagram nothing. What's the point of practicing if you came on instagram? It was just at that time. Believing that large rankles the president of the clippers he was like our youngest assistant coach at the time. We kind of had a routine routine where I would get the practice early. And he would be in coaches meetings. And he'd hear me out on the court and he'd leave the coaches meeting and we'd work and you know he had started and then at a certain point you know Mike Bibby was young and he would come in Michael Dickerson and we had a good group. Your job like the breakfast club or something. Is that what you called it. Something just an early early early But but we would. We would working a lot of the work that we did help. Be You know they are grow as a player. But you know beyond my career lytle. Holland's was there early before before his who stood in Memphis as a head coach But I I wanted to be good it was I was in the NBA. I to to your point. I knew I wasn't wasn't the fastest guy I was the jumping over people I had to keep getting better. I think that's what may need. That's what helped me get to. That point was working hard and being dedicated to the game and wanting to continue to improve and it in that way. It didn't let me down. I think those are Traits and habits that I've tried the transition into to my to the second career that that two thousand Olympic team in Sydney. First of all that was. I don't know what your experience was in Australia. That was I was there for that whole Olympics I haven't been back Australia's since I'd like to do I love you. Back Jack. Van Dyke beaches solve like Bonday sweater and like a closet that team though and Routine retain the coach. And we JAS Jason Kidd Vince Carter and that was the that was him. The Vince Carter zones over. Frederick Frederick Weiser were you on the corals or the Veggie like is one of those days that happens and you like did that just just as you reacting. You like did that did he. Just he just jumped over. I mean why would seven two. Yeah are you like did he just dude Buddha unbelievable of believable what what was that That experience with that group that Olympics was was like what unbelievable you note. Okay I think I think the misnomer about NBA players. Like everybody's friends and everybody hangs out and we all know each other and you know that. Was You know Steve Smith and I became. I'm really good friends. I know grown up in Atlanta and looked up to him just from a distance. And that's the first time he and I really got to spend time together. My wife and his wife became friend and Gary and Jason. I knew them but I've really got to spend and learn to learn for the I would work out with Alonzo in oddball. I worked you know I thought I was is working hard in the stuff he was doing. You know every day after practice lifting and shooting unbelievable run with him. You Know Tim. Hardaway salt that Allan Houston not so we I mean we were together like six weeks. We were together three or four weeks in Hawaii before. Then we were there and and we. We went to to to Melbourne for a week or so. Then we were Sydney. We would go every night after practice. It was like a bowling alley. Be You know 'cause that's where they they have. The Olympic teams the men's basketball team and women's basketball team pulled away from from campus. From the you know from where all other athletes are so we were finding things to do to kind of occupied our time. We will go bowl every night. We've split up and have teams but this unbelievable experience of getting a noted guys is in learning from them into noted families to me. That was the best. Buy Me and we came back with. We came back to it to go like you say yes. The cavs shoots A thirty footer. If he hits it like we're you know we're that team bad. That doesn't come home to go. was that an unspoken thing or would you like nobody want like you. Don't WanNa come home. And that was an option like that just was not an option linked to came pretty close though. Yeah for sure I mean I think that you know at least. I don't think it got the widespread attention of like. Hey this team could be beat. You know but I think you know internally like we knew like wow like teams are an even interview like dairy Sangala. Allie was on that team. Yes the cavs but you you knew as is similar to what you saw this summer like ill people had a lot to say about our about the. US eighteen losing but they lose the front they lose the NBA NBA team. There's not a you know it's not like a team of nine. NBA players as five or six team. I'm full of NBA players and unlike our teams. They've played together their whole life. You know throughout the summer they come here and play and then they go back in the summers and played goes they're like a real team So but you you start to take note at that time. At least I did. Yeah that Lithuania game in the semis and I can still see. I was at the game covering that game and I can still see dice Thirty jumping over. Everybody moved right. Saved US saved is such a such especially. I think it's a little different. Now is such a different game and that like you know big all pulled away from the basket. Gang was a lot more more physical a lot more movement I think our gain our NBA game now is closer to that international game that we see But again I'm every once in a while. Look at my gold medal. Lynn what do you what do you keep. It does in my bed at home problems. It's human nature to hate problems. But why is that after all.

"Raff status. Are we better just to have him sit out and work out Like there is Bazeley did and did it didn't end up hurting him with the draft. Is that something You almost a victim of it is not easy for kid at age to walk. Elliot will look. I think we know that you know for the kids. We're talking about to your point This is for you know what we feel like are the for sure legitimate. NBA Prospect for that kid of our rule change that would be it drafted into the NBA and feel good about his chances of going into the NBA and fill filling. They'll he can contribute. So you know personally. Originally the idea was different now. Is that in highschool. Arche is so much access to playing against pros. These kids get the you know. Obviously you gotta get the idea that you wanna be cautious and not you know. Put the kids so far. You know out there in the G. League is league is tough but the thought that the kids as we're talking about couldn't compete in the G. League I think they could. I I agree. It's a tough like our league is competitive is good but I do believe like the really really good high school kids could could find your way I think our job is to create a platform arm and a situation. That's that helps them and shows them how they develop holly grow Doesn't exploit him. Doesn't you know take advantage of make sure Berga situations when you're as big of a basketball fan as I am..

"New York with the G. League President Sharif Abdurahim Sharieff. If I were you doing well what was are you. I'm good. I thought for some reason. I thought it was commissioner and then I look back now it's president. Why don't you go shake commissioner? Yeah no no well we have. We have one at the time. It was only one commissioner Adam obviously and then you know we Brought on Cathy Goldberg not too long ago. So we have two commissioners now think that's enough at the at the NBA negotiation. You can get the like all the GM's in a league they all become president and then they hire gm around still running out and there's still running it but now another team comes in can't hire your system GM to be their GM because as you call him right. That's I don't know. President is is good. President is out of the president is outstanding. You took over in December Malcolm Turner. The previous president went to Vanderbilt and higher. Jerry Jerry Stackhouse right out of the Essentially out of the G. League is his coach. I you know. The feeling had been sheriffs since you retire you're in Sacramento in their organization. You ran the G. League team. He worked in their front office. Then you worked in the League office and I know like every I can think of multiple teams in the League and I'm sure there's some I don't even know about who have wanted to hire you Couple of big market teams. I know tried to get Gotcha On either coast to for Pretty High Level Front office jobs. You're in the League office. Did you think there for awhile. That's was your next move to go back to a team. And then Adam silver comes to you with run the G. League well like you said we had I had a couple opportunities since leaving Sacramento and being here to go back with teams and you know really it was it. was you know this time is like a family decision. My you know my family was hard. My children are GROWN UP IN SACRAMENTO essentially. When we came to New York my son was starting high school? My daughter was starting middle school and the only thing they knew California so getting them out of California was extremely painful painful and then you know I really at that time. It was really good opportunities but it was a it was a family decision. That like look. We're GONNA put some roots here and let the kids enjoy high school middle school and so forth and in this opportunity being illegal operations with with basketball around basketball officials and all that and learning that but Adam and mark become the me the opportunity to oversee the G. League was I thought a great opportunity. Great opportunity to kind kind of put together all of what. I've been learning through my playing career since my career ended in different capacities. I've been in what I've done Once I'm arcane you know before I was here in between intern in one of the the business verticals in the in the NBA. So it I I thought he was a great opportunity. Great Time But G. League that worked at Malcolm and Tommy Dairy before it done at really position. Does you know really well. I just just a great opportunity opportunity at the time. So I'm I'm totally into this and it Kinda worked out that I was. I was patient And waited for this for this opportunity. Maybe so yeah and we'll talk a little bit more about the G.. League twenty eight teams this season. You know kind of the experimental rules. You got the free throw well. I've talked to coach. I got all my basketball friends. Like giving me like sending me lies playing a free throw rule to people experiment with free throws Vo. So it's one for two free throws essentially And other than a three pointer so you get one you want free throw for two or three points right throughout ought to. I forty six minutes of the game last two minutes. It goes back to to normal the normal way of doing things and The idea is one you know what testing what learning can we get from this as it relates to to to gain flow to the time of the game. I think the data tells us that you know fans watching the Games one of the things they liked least about. You know our games are the brakes and FRITO. So is there something around later. We can find positive findings and then you know just for my total G. League perspective we're always looking for ways of making our game a little more interesting interesting little some new is different from the NBA. Folks could point to win this. I have all my buddies. Their coach and colleagues colleagues at our general managers and coaches at like sesame dirty text messages of upset about the RU. But again I I I. I've been the genie game so far this season I'm not I'm not a fan. I actually surprisingly I like it out. optically Gli it doesn't Disrupt anything to me. And I like I would tell like coaches like redone. This my twelve years of playing. This was the way we this was the way practice went that if you got fouled shot one free throw. We kept going so I. I think it's good foggy. You know part of the G. League beyond developing players and coach's front office people it's a feeder system into the league on a lot of levels. It's a place to experiment like you said. How often do you get like maybe comes more to you now because of your position like what? What's the craziest idea? Someone has brought to you in the last couple of years about could do you think we could get and it's got to go through a lot of levels you don't arbitrarily decide what ruled the craziest idea. Somebody had about experimenting prayer meeting. Let's see if this would work in the G. League and see if it's something that NBA would look so like even on my time my time on the League operations versions. How'd you get? That would really be the process that it would be something that you constantly looking at the game analyzing the game from my league operation standpoint joint we go through the cycle of okay. What did what do we need to do? You know take the emergence of of the threes. Like okay you have some tissue issue fifty. Three's that half their field goals at three points. Is there something that we should be doing around. That should be moving ally that I've heard folks corner threes. I've heard I mean I really. I really really respect their basketball knowledge. They take the Cornyn three. You know me as a basketball player and I said okay. There's only for all the space that we have. You take the corner three outdoor anything that's going to do is like clog up the game clog up the pain clog up the the lane so I don't think those things I mean. You always looking at folks all ways. one for two for a long time was one changing. You know at the point of win the penalty free throws come in or another Or for officials. I mean we actually Energy League. We actually tested has today. You know you look at it so I don't think you know the we don't really WanNa limit on what you suggest. I think the process of going from league operations analyzing analyzing it we take it to our competition committee which is made up of three of our head coaches general managers owners and bat what we should be testing even in the G. League so even the one for two free throw has to go through that cycle testing before against the I Sharif. The the pro path program that was voted in last year. And so you had a rod strickland brickland and You know his group going through and yes essentially trying to find an educate players players families. Who whoever about the idea of if you don't want to go to college if you're a high school player and you are a legitimate? The caveat you've gotta that'd be a legitimate NBA prospect. It's not just any kid can go come and get one hundred twenty five thousand dollars per year. But that's but for high level player one hundred twenty five thousand dollar all your salary which is More than double more than double the almost probably tripled the normal G. League salary right and then he'd go in the draft the following year. I think we thought there might be one or two guys. Maybe in the first one there turned out not be any last year. And the guys who didn't go go to college lamelo balls unique because his eligibility was kind of gone you went to Europe earlier Rj Hampton. They both got Australia. Really aware you're going to get paid significantly more than that G. League and so they might have been candidates for that But went overseas. What what have you found among high school players families coaches sneaker? All the people would have influence on this about their appetite for for for that program. I think one number one folks we SPEC the the level of competition initially eight and they understand that this is truly the path now towards preparing players for the NBA opening day rosters over forty percent over forty percent of players hoping I rosser Hadji League expand. What what we found and really the approach road was that we wanted to start which is educating folks like this would would be a total departure of the norm sold? Think that in year one we. Would you know present this opportunity And you know you you know. Get all takers you know. We didn't have that expectation that really and we didn't you know the approach. We're we're I wasn't a recruit or to make a case for the G. League over any other option. It was really decide. This is an option and I'd I'd say that came from really sentiment coming from the Overall Basketball Community Dad. If a kid doesn't want to go to college and he wants another option he he really should have somewhere else he can land. And that's that's the league. That's what we presented. We'd say that you know four kid. That feels good about it. This is is an unbelievable opportunity to comment. Prepare and get yourself ready for professional basketball on court and off the court and I think our our teams have proven ability to develop. NBA very good NBA players. You look guys now. You Know Kendrick Johnson. John's and Daniel houses dead spending a year two years in our in our league. And now you know terrific. NBA Player it. Here's the thing that and I imagine you have working against the G. League to get that high school player is especially the players getting advice from an agent at that point. And he's going to be with you. Know an agent who was going to help them through that year and then into the draft that into his pro career that it is very and you just set it. It is a very high level of basketball and you're eighteen years old and you're coming in with twenty seven twenty eight twenty nine or you know veteran win or guys who have been in pro basketball for years or played four years of college and that it's really hard for an eighteen year old coming out of high school to go in that G. League the environment and not maybe be a little overwhelmed even a really good player and they and I think there's a thought of is that going to.
