I like milwaukee like holiday being added to the team. But but. I don't think this was a big win for them. And we kaplan i just think it's a little rich to hear philadelphia complain about janas doing this when he literally stole a book out of joel. Embiid's playbook giuliani. Does this stuff all the time. But this is one of those rare games. It was a win for both of them. I mean the sixers came in second half of back to back without embiid. They held the Bucks to their worst first half the entire season and then you have the books. They have their worse first half of the entire season and they've resilient and they wants us out of it and that's a win for them to i don't think this is t o celebrating on dallas star. But it is something you know. Yana said he's having fun. And i'm all for having fun but sit down. Phillies court and then taking a photographer's cameras snapping pictures blowout win vs india last month. He's having a lotta fun at the expense of is eastern conference rivals in it and as an unofficial historian of nba pettiness. I'm all for it but pump the brakes you be without without embiid. They blew a nineteen point lead. You almost blew the game at the end of it yourself. So this game looked and felt like a playoff game because you know what you gotta be careful doing stuff like this because you might see him again. You don't want to spend into the win too many times ramona and but the best part about this was the white house and he wanted to goes down. Yeah
Top 15 ideas for an equitable economy
"I'm pleased today to be joined by dr phil jackson of new profits. She's one of the managing partners. Enchila- thank you so much for being with us ramona. Thank you for having us especially on this exciting day where we're finally announcing the fifteen solutions for the grand challenge. I am so glad we could talk about this today. Because we've been we've talked about this in the past as you were taking in the applications for this so for those in the audience who don't know what the grand challenges when you tell us. Kind of broadly. What it is and then we can talk about. Who's some of the people have been selected to the future burton grand challenges partnered by new profit in partnership with x prize foundation. Mit solve and j f f. And what we're doing is we're giving finalist access to six million dollars. In funding to implement solutions that will rapidly reskill twenty five thousand workers into higher wage jobs and it quip influential workforce boards with vetted tools to help get americans back to work in why this is so important as that many times philanthropy. We actually give grants based on ideas. These grants are going to be given based on outcomes so it's really going to be down to how many people were trained and how many people were placed in jobs with living wages. What were you looking for as you're looking for the organizations the groups to go forward in this competition so yet so even before cova working on this initiative for two years and really what we senator around were were adults busy people who are in need of upskilling but who can't take the opportunity cost to take off a year or go back to get a four year degree so we know going into this that we were looking for accelerated learning programs and also programs that would allow a learner or a worker to earn while they learn. We know that you know people. We think. A lot about the fifty six million. Us residents who are are working minimum. Wage jobs you know less than living wage jobs that they need opportunities to to skill up in a fashion that works for their complex and busy lives and so we really wanted these entrepreneurs to be willing to center the experience of these learners right and to create solutions that will work alongside their busy lives. We talk a lot about trying to upskill four jobs now. Actually and jobs of the future are each of the program. Said are in your rapid reskilling. Are they ernest. You learn absolutely in the way that we're thinking about it. There's two things one is like you said ramona. The future of work has become the president of work right so a lot of things that we thought were going to happen. Happened in cove. It industries went away that we thought were recession proof. And so what we've tried to do with all of these trainings. Is that one is their offered free of charge to the job seekers. And we're asking about preneurs a train for jobs that will not be impacted in the future works of thinking in the next three to five years and where people can leave the short term training and actually get a job with a living wage in so those are the parameters that we looked at. And we want to make sure that these trainings were geared towards people. Don't have a bachelor's degree and have other barriers employment. There are fifteen different organizations. That will be part of the solution. They're a combination of rapid reskilling. An mit sauce. And so we're looking at the fifteen solutions of the cohort that. We're validating at workforce boards. They just came to us from different challenges. There's a couple that. I'm just really excited about the first. Is this company. That's called charger help. And what's so interesting about that. One is that they are training people to be technicians into service electric car charging stations. What's interesting to me about. The idea is one is who knew that that was a job. You know. I didn't in to who knew that you could do that type of job and not have a bachelors degree so in a sixteen week program. They're able to train someone to do this job and they can go and make upwards of hundred and fifty dollars an hour but the company itself charged for help actually pays their employees up to fifty dollars an hour but they're giving them this training. That has a great market potential. And so that's one example. Another example that we're really excited about is generations. Usa there are national nonprofit ner actually international in many ways but they're allowing people to on the job while they're like learning a new trade and they do everything from building trades to manufacturing to data to technology while they're getting the technical training they're also giving them the wraparound supports of that professional training. And what some might call soft skills but are you know really important professional skills if we're going to actually obtain a job. They're getting paid while they do it. They're tuning to like the wraparound supports. A worker might need so in terms of transportation and childcare and they are promised a job on the other end of it and so as a learner. When you're thinking about that opportunity cost of taking you know sixteen weeks or three months off to learn. You're getting some upside in the beginning. And also you've got this guarantee on the back end.

That's why you're good at what you do. The the players to me are some of the most credible sources when they're looking at. Oh the players critiquing them so. Why is it an issue for some people not another no. There's no question there's no challenging being the words that they use. It's a willingness to call them out like for example. You don't hear me talking about my colleagues. Well let me ask you a question. I'm just saying let's don't get me wrong. If i got a beef with that's different if it's me and you and we got something going down and then we both in the business that's different but just somebody monitoring.

I don't have a problem with being you know. If you're holding council. Listen stephen eight what you said i agree with but i think you were kind of off the mark which mrs what i just figured out that criticism you know what i mean.

I can't believe draft to his behind this like damn where that come from. That's all but you know what everybody else said. I'm just saying if that's gonna be the narrative.

"Involved. He did not deliver. He did not stay healthy. He did not win and i think that he doesn't feel good about the way last year went on a number verve levels from leadership to on the court to the way he connected here in los angeles which essentially he did not connect here in los angeles. I mean the the way that we remember his version. Camila is probably walking into staple center without glass of wine true <hes> so he has led to make amends for and instead of talking king a lot. He's just working and not saying much so. I think that's a good sign. I have also though just come off the end of the kobe brian era where kobe bryant did an incredible rehab he started he did a whole movie about his comeback from kili surgery and everything there and we all if i was going to be revenged kobe and his body just broke down on him so your expectations about the los angeles clippers based on what you've seen kawai limits here paul georgia's patrick beverley as their side patrick patterson don't know what's going to happen when ego dollar don't know what's going to happen with every week and dopp talks about the clippers. You know what the clippers have more of a ready made team right because this is a team that pushed the warriors to six in the first round last year then and they just added paul george and kawhi leonard and i know they're sad to give up on gallinari and shakily because alexsandr but you just added superstars to a team that already knows how to play together the question russian for them. There's two questions healthy is paul. George is going to be and how much time is he gonna miss at the beginning of the year and to what does having too big superstars due to the things that worked so well last year which was just mantras harold and lou williams running that pick and roll to death a good point. That's a good point. I'm not underestimating portland either with dane c._j. Step in his game up c. c. j. stepping his game up. I think the act was. I think it's coming back healthy with the acquisition of whiteside who take it in miami but he's a big body to add in portland. I don't like the fact that they lost heartless. When i gotta tell you i think portland could be a threat am rolling thinking that i actually really liked portland too because i think whiteside is gonna go as the leadership around him helps him go okay. He's i think he's going to be put in a situation where he didn't have to be the man now like in in miami when they signed him to that big deal that he walked around like i'm the guy now and he was never going to be the the guy he needed. A whole infrastructure around him and i think daimler to me is one of the best leaders that we have in this league so if he can't get the best out of him. I don't know that anybody can your thoughts about houston. Real quick westbrook team would heart and instead of sleep. I hope they get off to a good start because because right okay so i'm actually bullish on that pairing because they have pay they have played together and they both wanted this to work and i think they understand what what it means for both of their careers and legacies if it doesn't work but if they get off to a bad start and you have my dan tony who has been put into this lame duck position and you have an impatient asian owner who feels like he just for the fences in his tired of losing to the warriors that could change real fast ramona outstanding job as always.

"Don't lie what happens the rest of the playoffs. What about the rest of the league. We talk about lebron james how he stepped up up the name chris paul c. p. three comes to mind as well because then particular moment in time first of all he's obviously very very tight like brothers with lebron james godfathers to each other's children <hes> then not only that he's also a star for you on the los angeles clippers at that time and he's the president the players association so our wandering at that particular moment. Does this podcast in any way explore what role chris paul played in all oh that too yeah. It's it's a it's all the players combining after remember. Let's go back in time. The players on the clippers asked doc rivers to be their the voice so at that time chris paul wasn't speaking out directly but he was working behind the scenes with kevin johnson who was the head of the players players union at the time <hes> and doc rivers was really the forward facing guy keeping everything together and i think that when you look back on how the players took matters into their own hands michelle roberts probably says this best in the podcast <hes> she said when i met these guys when i met chris paul i realize these are men and men don't tolerate tolerate people like donald sterling in their space and i think you see everything after donald sterling with lebron dwayne wade carmelo anthony chris paul standing on the stage of the s._p.'s being for being vocal about social issues you see this starting with the donald sterling scandal and you see the players in this league finding their voice on on a number of issues <hes> that now we're so used to it doesn't seem revolution but at the time it was huge. Um and i appreciate the correction because you're right. Kevin johnson was running plays sociation at that particular moment in time chris paul was not let me transition to other owners and the aftermath aftermath of the whole the sterling affairs as appropriately titled when you look at what transpired with him you think about owners like for example mark cuban talked talked about how much dangerous precedent it would have sent in the event that you strip this man of ownership sort of opening that pen door's boxes that we see today's players are more and more of an activist mold some would say than they've been in decades for crying out loud. You look at the state of affairs with the n._b._a. It's one thing for the players to feel when a better situation. There's another thing for you and i feel these tom. How what kind of impression should have you gotten about where the owners feel. The league is today because of what transpired with donald sterling while this. Let's say this is the beginning we we might be towards the correction point because i think the owners are a little threatened by how much power the players have over their franchises and and it's been swinging back and forth so two thousand ten lebron james takes his talents south beach it freaks all the owners out because they realize the value he had to the cleveland cavaliers and how it decimated their value in the market but also like economically on the court <hes> and they realize how powerful players are when they band together so we have the lockout in two thousand eleven eleven which attempts to correct some of that then we go forward to two thousand fourteen another player grab for power where they force an owner from this is league and work together as partners with the new commissioner in the league. I think you can see the business practice now where the players and the league our partners more so than they've ever been but adam silver works for the owners and so he's constantly got to balance that right he's got to advocate okay for the people he worked for but also keep the players who now have a tremendous amount of player because i think they're the forward facing stars of this league. He's got to keep all of that got together in balance. I agree with you fantastic job of ramona shelburne right here with steven e._s._p._n..

"Question. I'll throw your way and if you can't answer totally understand because we wanted to watch and listen to the talk has obviously but you talk about them being back together now. She wanted to sell clearly he did not does she give you any indication that she has regrets about selling the clippers particularly considering that she's back together with him not to mention outta clippers and looking right now yeah i you know i talked to her about it and i and there's this weird storyline where like donald would like to back in the league and maybe had some made some. I'm called on his behalf. There and everyone in the league is like no that is never going to happen and she actually says you you know look donald has a sense of relief about it now because owning the clippers was something that he did for most of his life. It made him somebody in this town if he he doesn't own the team he's just another rich guy l._a. But you know it was also a huge source of stress for him because they were the worst franchise in sports for a lot of years he he took a lot of that criticism. It couldn't have felt good and now that he's done with this. He can just sit back and enjoy his two billion dollars that they made on the sale. How is it for them when you consider the clippers right now i'm talking about steve bommer. I mean i mean unless you blake griffin. Practically everybody likes the baltimore. There's nothing to say about doc rivers. He's a future hall of fame coach. We all know that or the and when you mention the clippers clippers you must say at this particular moment of time ramon you notice better than most first class actually applies to them their first class organization. I mean that's zombie games though like if you if you if you if you're a games in l. a. i would say she goes to about a fifth of the game she has seen in court where she always did was part of the deal. She guy like ten seats to every game and she doesn't go out as much as she used to. She's not really embraced by everybody there but i think she regrets not having the team and should not having that stage but i think they they understand that this they sold it and this is a different era. What was funny is like she's. She's really up on it like she's still watches the games we talk at night and she she'd hang up. She's like how the games on the games on honey. I gotta go wow so we're talking to ramona shelburne right here with steven e._s._p._n. Radio e._s._p._n. News so it all of that being said if there's something that that that we you predict we'll all the story. What would it be well. I think this is the beginning of the player empowerment era okay you can you can go back and find other moments right where we're players start to speak out but you were right there on the ground when this happened players were going to boycott playoff game and if for lebron james to step in front of the cameras and say there is no place for donald sterling in this league on the morning after those those tapes was released right now we all look at that and say yeah of course there's no place for donald sterling in this league the the manson incredibly racist horrible things but in that moment that was a watershed moment for players in this league and it was also a defining moment for adam silver because he listened to those players and doc rivers was able to keep everybody together others so that the league did not just shut down. There's a story. That's a companion piece up on e._s._p._n. Right now where i caught a lot of people from the warriors andre iguodala rick wells bob myers wires they were ready to walk out with the clippers to and if adam silver doesn't ban him for life on the morning of game five. I don't know that the players on either team would've played..

How's everything i'm good. I meant as many shows as you now. Ah welcome to my world ramona's welcome to my world. Let's let's get right to it to sterling the fast first of all the motivation behind doing doing this explained it to my listeners. Listen in two thousand fourteen. I was reporting on this on the ground and i felt like i was living in a movie man. I just it was like you were covering the characters and you couldn't believe what they were doing. You could not write a script and makeup characters behaving the way that shelly sterling and donald sterling doc rivers blake griffin kevin johnson adam silver. You couldn't write a script better than this and i think i always knew that. I wanted to do something more than just report on in the moment so you know the last five years. I've been working with e._s._p._n. To figure out what that would be and this is what the form it took right now mostly early because you wanted to get this done fast right you wanted to because it was so compelling it's so interesting but also because a lot of the players involved here are like like in their eighties sterling about eighty five shells thirty four shelly sterling has a hell of a story to tell in this story <hes> in this podcast and she is one of the most compelling characters i think in it <hes> i wanted to make sure that she was in and she was able to tell her own story at this stage. We'll tell us the story about donald sterling in your to somebody that knows l._a. That knows the clippers that knows the organization. That knows what it was. Once like long before steve steve ballmer doc rivers and those folks came along even though doc rivers was there when donald sterling was still the owner talk to us about what we're going to learn this about donald sterling so the clippers were always the joke franchise right. They were the one that the lakers were winning. It was show time and they were the cool team and the clippers had like some players. Here's that you liked and you sort of felt sorry for them because they had a bad owner and they'd never got they had about arena played at the sports arena where there was like old chairs from one thousand nine hundred sixty eight convention shen and rats running around right. You didn't go to clipper games unless you were there to watch the other team. <hes> fortunately they had ralph lawler who was a great hall of fame broadcaster that drew you in but for the most part the clippers were like the red headed stepchild and that's why it's so different now to see the team in steve bombers hands but donald sterling was this owner that that most of us were around the team kind of tried to avoid like they were like my first beat and i remember lisa dillon who was the beat writer the l._a. Times that i would be around and we will be in the locker room and he just kind of be creeped out like we felt like he was leering at us. Like what what are you there for and i think the players felt the same way and when you look at donald sterling's place in los angeles and i think what people will learn in this podcast he and jerry buss the owner of the los angeles just lakers. The time are remarkably similar men. They both come from very humble beginnings. Jerry buss was a self made man from wyoming. He put himself through u._s._c. made his fortune in real estate. Donald sterling was the same setup. Okay he's from east l._a. His father was a junk peddler. They'd wake up at two in the morning and they'd sell they'd sell fruit and vegetables the market here in east l._a. He was discriminated against because his last name was tacoma's..

I think he's still working through that. I think that's why she listened to the tapes. I think she understands it but you know you've made these compromises compromises a long time ago and she has a pretty good explanation for herself. Even if you you know we all may not like it right.

What about this during the process when you're when you were reporting it and i think and i've had people who who i talked to about you. Doing they said listen i. I'd love to have been a part of it. I like who may who i know helped you off of <hes> talked on background and people you have relationships within league who just i i think don't want their name anywhere near donald sterling and probably just didn't go on with you but shelly sterling did and what do you think of her you owner a long time she stood by and was part of in in complicit with some horrible things from the housing discrimination to any number of things that they built their fortune on it was a slum lord and yet there's still a sense of i think some empathy in there for her that i think some people do have what are you come away way your years of knowing her and then the research the time you spend with her for this. What do you think of her. I think she's a lot smarter than anybody realizes. She comes across us initially as dislike very cute grandmotherly figure. You kind of felt sorry for her. The donald treated her this way and was in everybody's face about stuff enough but she is really smart and really knew what she was doing all along and i think <hes> getting to know her pretty pretty close over the last five years. We've gotten lunch many times and we we talk a lot obviously in the podcast and understanding what she went through and all of it you know i think that shelly didn't get enough credit for building their real estate empire for being the wife who notched an we all look to her is like all that poor wife who stood by the guy i think she he was a business partner and they have a marriage but most of the history okay and you know there's a friend of hers. There's who's in who's in the storage. Her name is marlene salesman she she she knew them way back when before they were ever rich or famous or anything and she always says you know about shelly l._a. She because she always comes in for the save for like she. She's like we do that with women because they're not the forward facing person right right. They're not the forward facing part of the company or the owner or whatever it is and i've actually kind of gotten to know this whole set of women in los angeles through reporting this doing this story. Shouts of shelley's friends are like larry king's wife spellings wife will getting pucks former wife right like these are. It's like like they're known by their husband because their husband is the forward facing celebrity but in many cases the woman is just as not if not more important than then the forward facing guy and her husband and these women are pretty kick ass. They pretty pretty savvy and business. <hes> i wanted to believe sheley. Was that person the whole time. I was reporting this and i had a hard time towards the end when you see them get back together and they're they're still she's still kind of like she's gone back to talking like she used to talk about donald rationalizing his behavior and you know there there was a really clean break in two thousand fourteen and then they've just sort of fallen back together and i it's hard for me to like understand.

"West i probably would would you maybe maybe i'm not gonna write up golden state just yet utah looks really good houston for all the dysfunction they're still has a really good team but but i'd probably take calls were sitting in front of me the famous ones if the lakers get am i pick the lakers it's just he's that big of a player but you know it it's hard what i feel like it's so interesting with this decision is everything about this lakers choice field against tight field against character for quiet leonard like i i laughed at the idea that he would wanna join forces with lebron and be around it'd be on this purple and gold whether you're gonna have showtime and the and the just fishbowl right it's just an absolute circus around like last year even they won't even good last year and i never even one is going that locker room 'cause it's so crowded and some nuts in there all the time like i'd rather just go practiser talked to guys on the court or something like that 'cause there's just so many people around so much media someone has that none of none of that profile fits quiet leonard and it doesn't feel it and yet and yet i think you could make a case for it in the sense that he's proven that he's the dynasty killer he's proven he can win without he went on his own and maybe at this stage in his career where you're maybe load management is what he needs to do going forward like this might be the right fit because it could be all load management team right eight inconven they all play sixty six games air right right well it's going to be remarkable finished i don't think we've had a we we have not had a free agency that i think was i think especially having three teams i think we've had some weyerhaeuser choosing among two if indeed he's really serious about all three free and maybe in his mind there were only listen we we we we might find out later that he only seriously considered two of them and we might not surprise it's to be a concern so but but he's but he's gonna play for one 'em ramona thank you for jumping again i know i will see you out west this week somewhere yeah ashley is right espy's yup promoter say you're doing this is always yeah they say then things tsp in senior writer ramona shelburne for joining us here on coach pie before we go i just wanna let you know.

"Couple of days obviously what do you make the choice ramona when we think about this rock raptors they oughta reigning defending champions right now we look at a guy like hawaii leonard who is m d'amato's mvp a welldeserved in the same breath e s p n even out i mean you gotta have the right team vsbn it ain't even aired in canada for crying out loud i got tsn crying out loud you got one of those situations if you're new balance sneakers company did you notice these companies gotta deal with they would like come from all the reports did you hit they would love him in l eight talk to us about co why leonard and in southern california route and how powerful that in all of this for second so quiet leonard is from southern california but it's not like he's from santa monica okay he is from the inland empire with the school out in riverside so that's that's about an hour hour and a half east of downtown los angeles and it is a little like paul george paul george was from palmdale which is like an hour hour and a half north and east so it's caesar caesar suburbs of loss angeles and he doesn't lives in los angeles anthony davis lives out here in westlake village that's like where charlie sheen as bright as a little bit north of where the car dash ian glib quiet leonard he lives in north county san diego which is not not that far actually from it's it's it's not that far from where he grew up you know if you're going from riverside down to san diego right not that's not that long drive but it's it's not elway and i think that's the most important part it's not elway he he would have grown up watching the watching kobe bryant and shaquille o'neal and i my understanding is she is a pretty big kobe bryant fan that was like a guy growing up but he that's that's kind of his ammo it's not necessarily early 'em it's it's not like he grew up you know go built like baron davis here in the heart of the city or russell westbrook so i think the lay of it all is more about his family and you know everyone i knew from from hawaii side you know going into this like if you if you're now he has a big family he's close with a lot of people he's they that was the whole impetus for wanting to be a loss angeles he's just a he's a family guy he wants to he wants to be around everybody but 'em again a couple of things happen at the end of the season that i think through a lot of people off in a lot of plans off which is namely they one letter one an a you know we don't know how that's gonna affect and what if he would have to approve the profile and why was he wanted his own team he he wants to compete against the best he's more of that yonathan kufo type kobe bryant profile which is like you know joined the super friends teams you you go against them you thrown dynasties but he's not done that twice and he's got a body that really needs to be man it's fro sixty seventy games every year i got you but if that's the case then moda how elway what you've been once they got abroad becoming the size cause remember even in san antonio in his preference was to get traded to the lakers it wasn't until he lived in toronto that we started hearing more about the clippers so how is it come to a point where right now we're looking at the los angeles lakers if the longest we thought it was gonna come down to toronto and the clippers but not a lakers are in the mix in a significant amount of how did that happen so i think that's the most interesting part of this is that a couple of weeks ago i mean i literally laughed at one of my producers who who was pushing the laker option oh like come on everything that you know about why leonard is that he wants to beat lebron not joined the bron an we might be wrong like that profile that that idea that we thought we knew about him that might be wrong and it's it's kinda it's kinda surprising.

"You got about seven to eight free agents at least five key, and it is entirely possible that not only will the Lakers LeBron James and dealt with none of them. But that at least one if not two could end up going to the clippers. So for me what I find myself wondering about Ramona. There's this number one. Who do we look at if that happens LeBron magic and be is magic long for this? Because he does have other options and doesn't necessarily need headache. Yeah. I mean, your magic even said it, right? You remember last year before they got LeBron where he said if we don't get to freeze over the next three summers? Like I'm out when he put himself in the same position. Jim busted, put a timeline on. And I think some of that is is just kinda him being real. And like I'm star. And I have to deliver like he put that pressure on himself a reason 'cause he he wants to deliver. He's a big game guy. That's that's his that's his DNA. But I could see him. You know, if he doesn't if he doesn't pull it off if they have another season like this next year. Like, let's say, they don't get anybody. They make a trade or to that doesn't that either works or doesn't work. Lebron gets hurt. Again, any number of things can happen where next year is just as bad as this one. I you know, I could see a scenario hit as a stick around. But that's that's speculating based on knowing him in his previous comments. I wanna I wanna say that as a reporter all those aggregate is out there. Go crazy. And then I think, you know, the pressure on the. Pressure on the brand too. And he's thirty four this year. The most serious Jewish career. I think this is a little underrated. When we talk about LeBron but space coming out and twenty twenty right? Twenty twenty brought it up. I brought it up in the first show. Yup. He cannot afford to have another season like this next year. And I I don't wanna be too hard on him. Because he the LeBron James has been incredible for this league. And he has you know, he's been incredible Bassett or being philanthropist social Justice warrior, like I, you know, you get to have one season where you get hurt like that happens, but he did not embrace the city of Los Angeles outside of his Hollywood endeavors didn't necessarily put down roots. Like he kinda brought with him. If you people from Cleveland, and like in other words, I already have my friends. Right. And you know, the only visuals you really seen. Lebron this year that have sort of made the round then him not playing all that much defense of drinking a glass of wine as he walks into staple center and. Having lunch with Leonardo DiCaprio, right? Like like, those are the visual images. So okay. Is this first season things happen people understand? But I think if next year goes poorly, if the clippers get to max guys and the Lakers just kinda seem like. You know, they're back to an aging superstar and their bits who doesn't have the same equity that Kobe Bryant had when he was at that stage in his career roof. There's not gonna be good. That's right. And not only that and not only that. I mean to me is a legitimate question. Now ended by ask you this question. There's a legitimate question. My LeBron never cheat us whatever LeBron will always show up. He will always take care of himself. He will always be ready to play so long as he's healthy. I have no doubt about it. But there is something to be said about the zest and fervor of the game to go to Miami. And the have that to come back to Cleveland, and to definitely have that one of the things I paid attention to is Rich Paul and maverick and others continuously saying he's already done at all his legacy is established. Is it possible that that may rob LeBron of the urgency to do exactly what we're looting to that? He needs to do over. Over the next three years in LA. I think that's the right question. I'm kinda asking myself the same thing. And I you know, I wanna say this. You're very successful person. You're correct. Yes. Once one of the things that you have learned is that it is really it's hard to get on top..
