Jazz's Gobert says sense of smell 'still not 100%'
"Lost this sense of taste and a sense of smell, and three months later, Rudy Gobert says, My sense of taste has returned. But my sense of smell still hasn't all the way And he says, I feel weird sometimes, but I don't know if it's because of the Corona virus still lingering or whether or not I just haven't worked out enough. And Donovan Mitchell, his teammate who tested positive that same day or the day after never had a symptom, right that that's the weird part about this is you Can't say if you get this virus X Y and Z will happen to you because we've seen this run across the spectrum from people having. No issues with it and significant issues with it, depending on who you are and how it affections and I know we're saying basically the same thing over and over again. It's we just have to wait and see. Wait and see MLS, which is going to play down in Disney, a CZ. Well, they've had under a 3% positive. Test rate, which is a great percentage for them again while they're going down there. Remember the WN BA is going to be in breakdown at the academy in Florida. So this is it. You know, we talked about the long runway for sports, especially football. Where we're about. There is July is going to bring the start of a CZ. We already saw the first team sports. Starting is the women's soccer league, which is playing in Utah. Their tournament and now we're starting to ramp up amidst. Many positive tests in sports and a lot outside of sports in the in these particular states as well, So I know we may sound like a broken record, but it's just waiting and waiting. And I really think we say fingers crossed and hope that's going really is going to be a lot of it. I mean, your work. You're starting your starting your seasons under a cloud, right? And it is a hell of a dangerous call that could be hanging over all our heads. So what's
A Tennis Star Catches COVID-19
"Welcome the no challenges remaining. It is Sunday. June twenty first twenty, twenty I am Ben Rothenberg I was working on posting are editing an episode that I recorded a couple days ago with buddies and frequent guests, this show remobilize into all and Louisa Thomas also this episode for the beginning of it. round table talking about the open their plans etcetera etcetera. Then a couple less than an hour ago, there was a posted popped up. I think I dream and remained Toumani. Join me again hello. Hello. Irene was the first one is. If I saw a post, this poster came up on your instagram feed, and can you describe what you saw instagram? Basically posted a photo of himself with a mask, announcing that he is back in Monaco and tested positive for covid nineteen an he apologized for possibly endangering others so yeah, it was him basically disclosing that he has positive, and as we know agree, gorgeous got back from Croatia where he was playing in the Adria tour and a couple of days before that he was playing in Belgrade as well, so he's playing Novak store, and yeah, and we mentioned that obviously on the podcast we recorded two days ago. I it it should be noted that we've seen many patriots of Griego over the past couple of weeks. But that's the first pitcher. We've seen what I'm wearing a mosque. Stu Point to money no I think. Yeah, so this is sort of tenses. Thing hopefully it get to a Rudy Gobert moment in tennis where Gregoire realized I have nothing fallen close attention, paying close attention to the Adria tour, but grew on court yesterday a Saturday in Croatia playing a match inside our Croatia as part of this Adria series traveling around the Balkans he was in. Serbia and we talked about this. A bunch on the show and I think I will probably still. Post the show recorded before, but I feel like this will change the tenor of its I want to post these. Get this one up I throw show that we are connected to reality more than maybe the other episode from two days ago because I think as Louisa, early people say on the show like. In these times a lock change short period of time, this is obviously a big moment for tennis. One that I think it's fair to say that we all feared was very possible with looking at Adria series, which is exhibition event sort of started by Novak Djokovic determined director. Quote Unquote was Georgia Djokovic of ex brother. It was being held in Belgrade and a few other planned stops around the Balkans They just actually after the news of Dmitrov positive test. They just can't sold the final match of today's session in. Montenegro which was supposed to host next weekend had already said thanks, but no thanks to Adria tour canceled their leg of the event. We sort of imagined Asia tour, which was an event. Whichever one you twenty? How about you described? He described what what we saw because he posted a bunch of photos. From recent days what Adrian Tour Bend like the got people concerned something this. Business was sending. The optics are not good. Let's put it charitably that way. Yes essentially what we've seen is What is a very regular event in very abnormal times you know? Whether it's you look on twitter on on streams on on Youtube big crowds in the stadium at Novak's Club scene players. And hands and invading each other's personal space and Interacting with fans you've seen videos of. Them are on the out in a club stripping together. and. Will these images that would be normal in normal times, but these aren't normal times, and it makes you cringe a bit. And so there there there's been tons of criticism and. Of course. Rich kind of. Received a lot of criticism for an we actually spoke. To US ball. And he said kind of that. He's aware of the criticism from the West. But you know what while things may be bad in the UK or the, us, it's not. It's not the same in Serbia. And, yeah, and for that reason you know people have been kind of reacting to that and reacting badly, and that's kind of where we. Can I add? They also had a kids day. That had a lot of kids. We've seen the photo of that as well and they've had a football match, and they've had a basketball match in Croatia. They went to a concert with Donovan John August the new version others the other day, and the thing is you have players who came from countries. Who aren't Serbia and Croatia in that? You have you have players someone like Gregoire? Who flew from the states, then winces Bulgaria, possibly also to Monaco. You also have such as Vera. Vera who's traveling from different places Sasha's also saddlebrook for quite a big portion of the quarantine time you have people traveling from different places, and they got off the plane, and you see the video of them getting off the plane and immediately hugging Novak, and immediately being welcomed people into walking around the no masks I don't understand how you can get a flight and already know that that person that person didn't have time to get tested, so that already was

It's like the magnitude and the scale of the numbers is really hard to hold in your mind. And then when he comes to the restaurant industry specifically the numbers there are huge and they're really bleak. I saw one industry survey that said eight million restaurant.

Sports on the Sidelines
"Has been postponed that was march eleventh when an announcer called off the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz game. Just before tip off. Most of US remember that day it was the day. President trump announced the travel restrictions from Europe. The day Tom Hanks and read a Wilson said they had tested positive for Kovic nineteen and the day the NBA suspended the rest of the season after Rudy. Gobert the Utah Jazz Center head tested positive for the virus. You may remember go bare as the player who touched all the microphones at a Utah Jazz media event as a prank. He didn't know he was positive at the time and later apologized for it. I'm a huge basketball fan myself so I was crushed when I heard the news of the NBA suspension. But of course public health comes first to me that really was the watershed moment in the entire. Corona Virus Cova nineteen conversation and not just sports but in our culture. Christine Brennan has been covering sports for three decades. She says she hasn't seen anything like this in her entire career. I think it woke the nation and the world frankly up to the significance and the seriousness of the corona virus pandemic after the NBA suspended season. It was like a domino effect. Major league soccer in the NHL have suspended their seasons for now while Major League. Baseball is hoping to open season in May according to ESPN and the NCWA cancelled it spring and winter championships as a wolverine go blue. I love March madness. It's one of my favorite times of the year. I even had tickets to the final four this year so I was really disappointed when that didn't happen but the threat to our health and safety was too great and it wasn't just the safety of the fans it was for the safety of the athletes to eleven thousand. Olympians expected to compete in Tokyo. This summer had their plans. Put on. Hold the Twenty Twenty Summer Games now postponed until twenty twenty one. The Games have been canceled three times before. But this is the first time they've been postponed and of course even a date. That far ahead doesn't come without concerns. Christine Brennan told me well we in the summer of two thousand twenty one. We'll people feel comfortable. Flying on planes overseas will the Japanese fans feel comfortable being in big stadiums and the answer is over and over experts. I've talked to. We have no idea. We just do not know but by that point of course a lot of these. Olympic athletes will have lost months and months of training. I just don't think we know yet and I think that uncertainty is so difficult for athletes. Consider that Olympic athlete. Their whole lives for this one moment. I was hardly know just as we train for for almost a year to two years. Just make the Olympic team. That's odd the beater Amman. An Olympic distance runner twenty twenty was the fifth time he's qualified at forty three. He's also the oldest American to run the marathon in the Olympics. You know before before the device you have a goal does the one thing you have like road races coming up you. Have you have something to get ready for this time? Everything's on the air. I just training just to stay fit and the sports world isn't just waiting on the sidelines. In the midst of the Pandemic Major League Baseball is now participating in a nationwide Corona Virus Antibody Study League employees spouses and players volunteered to participate to help give a better understanding of how prevalent this virus really is so I go is not to get an obese specifically back to work go in our research is really to get a bit of understanding of what the true prevalence looks like across the nation. I spoke with Daniel Lichner. The president and lab director of the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory. They were great pot down in a great organization because the head nationwide coverage that we could access individuals that were I seem to matic regular part of the general population. You know from team owners all the way down to hotdog vendors and be sales people on Game Day and everything in between you're looking at the MLB it sounds like sort of a microcosm then of the country Representing different demographics of our country. Can Can you talk me through how it was administered? Then in how quickly then did they get results? Some people could do drive-thru program where they have a bunch of their technicians. Physicians trainers and the Individuals with the drive through. Stick their finger out the window get fingerprint can get the result literally in a matter of minutes and it seems like most people would fundamentally want to know. Then am I now essentially immune can I get infected again? I think which too soon to say what that immunity looks like now. The federal government is slowly making plans to reopen the country. As I said earlier president trump has asked major league sports commissioners to be apart of that conversation the commissioners have a tough job. They're weighing a lot of things. In making the decision of how in win to get back to work commissioners work for the owners and their league and and the owners are going to want to start playing. They're going to want to start making money again. They're not liking the losses the financial losses that they're taking of course no one is the commissioners also have to weigh the very significant health risks. Not just for the players and their families and the referees and the coaches and the TV people and the and the media people But also the fans in the stands. And if you're drawing people into a stadium and if it becomes a corona virus hotspot and all of a sudden explodes. That is the fear of every commissioner in every sport you open up too soon you bring people together and all of a sudden you have another corona virus bomb sports says we know it may not be the same for a long time the NFL draft. Which starts tonight. We'll be held. Virtually for the first time as was the WNBA draft last week. The League plans to start its regular season in September and the draft helped set that into motion. Here's NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in an interview with ESPN. Obviously it's a different year for all of us. We had to make modifications in our offseason program We've had to make significant changes to our draft And those are all appropriate and their right to do. And we you know part of what this is about is continued to work from home by-product from home continue to do things we're supposed to do and be prepared. There's also the possibility that spectator less sports will become the new normal Christine Brennan predicts that will happen at the PGA men's golf tournament when it comes back in June and the masters in November. We could see an a masters without spectators. And that's GonNa look very strange to a lot of people. Although my prediction here is that within a couple of days of watching some of these sports events. If you watch a baseball game without spectators day is not gonNA look a strange the next day and by the third or the fourth day. You're going to be totally used and you're just going to be happy. You're watching baseball again. I think sports is walking a very fine line. It's kind of a tight rope. We want sports back. It'll make people happy it'll signal this openness that maybe we're we're coming out of this and yet you don't WanNa move too fast. Olympic runner of the Bearman thinks that the twenty twenty one Olympics will be a history making record breaking year. But I think he's GonNa going to unite us. I'm just GONNA have so much energy like a lot of things. Going every athlete winner represent contract because they know what their country went through so everybody wanted to do when do their best Magic Johnson also remains hopeful America. All of us who live in this great country that we live in. We need sports especially in a time like this but only if everybody is safe
"rudy gobert" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"What's up open floor? Low this is Benghazi with the Washington. Post I am joined on the other line by Michael. The pod Pena of espy nation. Michael we actually have some real drama. I think to dig into on this episode Thank you to everyone. By the way for all those emails about our most overrated people coaches and everything else. We'll dig into your responses. Maybe on another episode Michael. I thought after we've Kinda went on for you. Know an hour plus heaters. We might take a step back from the overrated conversation today. Does that feel wise to you? I guess so I I we. It was a scorched earth that assode. I'm glad it happened but I'm also glad that we're moving on to be honest. I don't believe the last part. I sensed reluctance. In Your Voice. It seems to me like you want to double down on the scorching. My right now. I know I'm a humble guy. Come on Ben Okay. Good well we will try to satisfy your urges by breaking up a superstar partnership today. How's that sound can't wait. I'm sure everyone saw the report that came out from the athletic Last week there was a long detailed story about the Utah Jazz. Their response to rudy go barest positive test and just the madness in the frightening hours And passage of time you know shortly after it. It's a great read. Everyone should check it out. I think the big takeaway pull quote that people saw. I'm sure on social media. Was this idea that the relationship between Rudy Gobert and Donovan. Mitchell at this point is not believed to be salvageable according to one source now Donovan. Mitchell publicly hasn't said much about Rudy. Gobert he did confirm a good morning America interview that he was upset and that it took them a while to kind of get over the initial shock After he found out that he was positive. Of course. There's been lots of questioning of go. Bears Behavior Before we tested positive in terms of touching. All the other microphones just sort of being a little bit reckless and clearly. There's some violated trust there rudy. Gobert said in an interview Sunday with the bleacher report That they had not been talking for a while but they did talk. Recently that the relationship might not be perfect but he felt like both Donovan Mitchell And himself on the same page kind of wanting to win title up for the Jazz so to me. The way I read this is Rudy is doing his best to kind of keep this thing together. He obviously feels bad. He's publicly apologized. He's donated tons of money to corona. Irs Relief Funds. Andy's take public service address messages. He's going above and beyond here to kind of keep things together and I think. The big question is Whereas Donovan Mitchell heads at right. He's publicly on social media all the time you know. Basically he's had a month year to stand up a big time way for Rudy and accept the apology and forgive him and try to bury the hatchet and move forward and he just hasn't done it. Michael let me start by asking you this question do you. Did you think Mitchell would handle this thing differently By now of course it's an extraordinary situation. None of us knows how we would handle it if we're put that exact moment. It is understandable that he would be afraid he'd be angry he would be maybe even irate given the circumstances at just the fear factor around this disease but I guess from Your judgment of him as a person and as a you know a player Have you been surprised how they shook out a little bit? I mean it's a lot of time has passed and for their relationship to quote not be salvageable. It leads me to believe that there's more to the story obviously that we are not been privy to You know I don't even think it can be confirmed whether or not Donovan gave it to rudy or vice versa So it it just seems to me like there's there's more here Maybe there was some sort of personality conflict but long before The the pandemic in this was just kind of what what sprouted everything to the surface and allowed Donovan to feel the sort of way and publicly. Well I guess he did say that. He was a little bit irritating so publicly. Declare how unhappy. He was with his teammates. So I don't I don't know it's it. Seems like if he is still angry at this angry and Rudy's interview with bleacher report. You know he was not very convincing in trying to to quash the beef he acknowledged it as you said it leads me to believe that there's a lot it's a lot worse Then then kind of what has been publicly revealed. So far yeah. I haven't spent a ton of time around either one of these guys with my first impression of both Has Been Positive Really. Seems like a really really Nice Guy I think some people like to you know tend towards. Oh is he a little bit soft or something like that? I mean I just think he's kind of a genuine spirit and I know he's been mocked for the crying and all of that but it seems to me like a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve who plays really hard. Who understands what he's good at and has really maximized his strength on that end who's built up his career here in in the NBA. I mean if you look back where he was before he got here five years ago to where his games at now. It's a remarkable story of self improvement and commitment and I have a lot of respect for how he plays basketball And how he conducts himself given that the League and and the style of play kind of shifting beneath his feet with Donovan Mitchell to me. It's like central casting from a small market franchise player right. I mean huge smile. Great with the fans Very good with the local media You know flashy exciting game Sells lots of jerseys Hit the ground running from day one and to me has always seemed like a pretty likable and fairly low key guy. I haven't ever gotten the sense that there's some gigantic ego raging within him and so when I was trying to kind of sort through this what could be the possible tension points to me. Michael it comes actually back to basketball. I'm not so sure about Personalities they were described as being fairly friendly and in close proximity you know before the testing their lockers near each other and everything else clearly. The two all star players from that franchise I look at basketball and I'm just wondering. Is there a different way to play this thing right? Like if you imagine a scenario where Rudy Gobert is in on the Utah Jazz. And since he was their first they've been building the whole show around him right. And now you're trying to build around Donovan Mitchell to me. It would start to look a lot more like a Houston Rockets Situation Right or a Portland Trailblazers situation where you've that lead guard installed as the main guy and everyone's supporting him so that means you know versatile defender so that he can have a you know a spread court to attack That means you know lots of length on the wings a defensive line Elaine to kind of cover for him so he doesn't have to do as much work on that end and it also means the ball in his hands an awful lot you know. His is just usage rate up shot attempts trips to the free. Throw line up driving kick assists up like I feel like that's sort of the scenario of the jazz that is out there potentially in the not too distant future. If you just take kind of Rudy. Gobert off the court but I think the problem with Rudy Gobert. He's so great at certain things but there are some holes right like his offense is basically entirely dependent and it's entirely paint bound So he's in the way right number one on offense he there's no stretch whatsoever and then defensively when he gets into space we've seen him struggle with like the warriors and the rockets and the playoffs. Where he gets the happy feet guys are hitting pull mid-range jumpers over or again by going to the basket and that becomes a real challenge for them. So I think that just his presence alone such domineering figure that you. Kinda have to build your whole team around on the court and I could understand. They're kind of becoming a natural tension from a basketball standpoint where Donovan Mitchell feels like. He's ready for an organization. He's ready to have everything built around him and then maybe go. Bear isn't an ideal fit around him. If that makes sense and I know we talk about similar things with like embiid and Simmons all the time right. I think those guys get so much attention. Because they're in a bigger market and You know they're they've got some floss their games as well and you can you know they were both like top three picks so there's going to be more attention and scrutiny there but I feel like there could be a similar level of dynamic where you know it works well enough in Utah but it's also pretty easy to imagine a situation where a works better for Donovan Mitchell. And in that situation go bears not on the team. What do you think do you? Are you buying what I'm selling Michael? I get everything that you're saying and we had this conversation a little while ago. I I I kind of disagree with a little bit of it in the sense that usually when there's a star player who's ball dominant like Donovan Mitchell. And he has a teammate. Who is also a star or an all star caliber player? Usually that players skill set is going to be one that steps on his own toes. Someone who also needs the ball someone who wants to run pick and roll and play make and score and all that but really go bear. I I understand everything you're saying about. His inability to stretch and that is a little detrimental in today's League. But he's incredibly low usage ninth on the team. When the season ended he was night on the team in usage does not need the ball does not ask for. The ball does not want to post up. Or maybe he does but he doesn't have any opportunities to and he accepts that role Donovan Mitchell true. Shooting percentage this year is exactly fifty six percent whether rudy go bears on the floor or not and there's a lot of different factors that into that but if you also look at what happened. Last year Mitchell's shooting dropped below fifty percent without go bear on the floor with them so I think bear does help quite a bit just as this. Pick and roll guy who has vertical. Spacing sucks in help defenders Even when you drive to the basket and he rolls the big. His own man usually is petrified of the lob threat so layups or there and Mitchell's field goal percentage around the rim is higher with Rudy. Gobert on the floor for that reason. Usually when there's a big who can't stretch the field goal percentages lesson for guys like Donovan. But in this case it's been higher so in real quick just to add. I mean his gravity also applies to Utah shooters right because of that. Lob Threat like You know you're not you're not maybe rotating as quickly or that guy doesn't WanNa leave go bare and sometimes you're getting a better shots in the corner because go bears on the court It's a little bit counterintuitive But again like I just wonder. Another issue here is pace Now is a fantastic counterargument by you but the jazz are playing like bottom five pace in the league right now. Like if you're imagining dream situation and again this is not necessarily a team. That's GonNa win the most games right. I'm trying to kind of line. This up as the team that makes Donovan Mitchell. The happiest and the richest and the most you know the most attention and most accolades and everything else right. They're not bottom five pace team right. I mean if if you're lead guy is athletic guard who's been in the dunk contest. Who's got handle don't you? You'd play a little bit different stylistically. Maybe I real quick. I want to touch on the defensive end of the floor before I touch on that Everything that you said about Rudy Gobert not being able to switch garden space and and really you know being stuck into this one dimensional aspect where he has to drop on the pick and roll. That is worrisome for share and we saw him get sliced up. But if you talk to just about any wing defender. Who's on a team with someone who is elite at Rim protection like go bear or embiid or any of these guys? They love playing with a player like that like he is a safety net right behind them if they get beat. They're not worried he makes them look good. So just looking at it from the lens of us where we are seeing shifting league and The aesthetic that's that's that's evolving and how detrimental Rudy Gobert can be in a playoff setting. If you're a player you really from my sense of just talking guys around the league. It's really not that Pronounced that makes any sense. No look I'm not trying to bag on this guy. I think he's a great player. I mean he's a two-time player of the year for the reason For a reason what I'm saying is if your ceiling is capped out as a second round playoff team or close to it like maybe you're getting really lucky and making a conference finals It's a situation where again. Okay like. He's been a huge help to us. But we're never going to get over the hump with them. So what is the cost of losing him right like maybe we step back in the short term but can we get billed back to a level and maybe the whole thing looks different and maybe Mitchell is happy and get back to the same level that you're at currently like to me? A ritual go bears at classic player. Who raises your floor but your ceiling still kind of low on it right Little Bit of like A. Marta rose. Five Back in Toronto. And so I can understand why his teammates would love him. I understand why the organization would can't campaign form for defensive player of the year every year. I would understand That you know he's unselfish like you're mentioning and that definitely goes a long way with one of your main stars doesn't need to have the rock and isn't demanding things and is willing to do all the dirty work that's a huge plus in it's really really hard to find and I think that's why there'd be a lot of interest in Rudy Gobert around the league..

NBA shuts down after Rudy Gobert tests positive for coronavirus
"I I think the I think about what happened with Rudy Gobert yesterday and and how he was a little bit of a bill and because of the way he mocked no after a press conference at all I'm not going to get sick I'm going to touch all the microphones and all that other stuff you know and I remember that right yesterday right after that Donovan Mitchell his teammate got diagnosed with covered nineteen and I just tweeted out that article so we got to take this leap seriously yeah and and that's the point I think that you and I are probably making more than anything else don't don't think that it's not gonna happen you just got to think that you got to take every possible step that you possibly can that it won't happen to you or your family and if it does happen to you and your family and you have somebody that young that may come down with this they're going to get through it they're going to fight through it they're going to be okay it's just the the vulnerable population we have to worry about so Rudy go bear comes back and apologizes and because he does look foolish and there are people that were very upset with the way that he was reacting and that's you know and that's unfortunate because Robert seems to be a good guy he's twenty seven years old he's a French national he seems like he has a great personality is probably a little bit of a prankster and didn't realize what he was doing was going to come back to bite him in the **** and then on unfortunately shut down the entire NBA but I the NBA was gonna shut down anyway whether he had it or not both the NBA and the NHL we're going to suspend their play out of an abundance of caution you know it's interesting though I mean the all the contingency plans up until the goal bear sickness in the positive test was we're gonna play without fans we're looking into places that don't have as many cases that was the M. B. it was looking into when it all changed by that test now I think of them chili someone who got sick was going to set all of this in motion and happy to be ready go bare and happen to be a couple of days ago but I don't know if the NBA the NHL Major League Baseball and the NC double a tournament was thinking about completely shutting down until that moment when Rudy go bear was sick and then on top of that a teammate gets sick and then at that point all bets were off right and just remember also that the NBA usually leads Adams over usually makes quick decisions decisive decisions that's why we all like him that's why we all appreciate him he's not afraid of any sort of controversy he'd rather be cautious I think he tells his honors this is what we're doing and this is how we're going to do it in this like you you can't argue it I mean we just have to be as careful as we possibly can so I appreciate him going out on the line is doing the right thing really doing the right thing and then in regards to Rudy go bare I feel bad for him I was mad at him really really mad at him and then after his apology came out I got you know I was a little bit sensitivity apology and said to myself you know can we just accept an apology once or twice please yeah and move on from that but maybe maybe he was the impetus to all of this and if that was the case and he was the impetus of all of this and are you once again it's a good thing yeah I also think that him acting like that in showing people that if you're going to be a jerk that you could end up putting yourself and others in danger is also a good message out there not that I wanted regal bear to get sick but I mean there's a video of him acting carelessly and then the news after that he is sick and got a teammate sake I mean that is a great public service announcement is an international rest of us and that's what Adam silver said

Mixed reviews for administration's handling of coronavirus
"All right so last night. President trump basically said to corona virus. I'm in control here. And Corona Virus said to you in control so things are not going great out there with the grown of the big problem of course continued lack of information. The testing kits were not widely available. We just don't know how many people in the United States actually have corona virus. We don't even know how many people abroad have for a virus. What we do know is that there's certain measures that have been taken the harsher the measure Z teams. The faster the Groenemeyer is brought under control. This is true in Wuhan. It was true in South Korea where you've seen a significant bending of the curve. That is what people are calling it. The curve being the number of people who are infected and then number of people who are dying this obviously means that people are now getting increasingly serious and cautious about going to wide scale public events. Now that if you're young and you go to a big public event you're GonNa but that if you go to a public event you may become a carrier or transmitter to somebody who is more vulnerable. Somebody with a pre existing condition. Somebody who doesn't have a strong IMMUNE SYSTEM. Cancer Patients Leukemia patients. People who are older. All of this is is deeply frightening. I mean there's no other way to put it. You look the news. It's hard not to be scared and the reason it's hard not to be scared as when you see Italy shutting down every public space like all public spaces except for grocery stores and pharmacies. No Church services going on in Italy no stores open in Italy when you see Israel shutting down not only all travel all public events over one hundred people when you see people trying to shut down public events in Washington state. Obviously all of this is predicated on the notion. That Corona virus is easily transmitted which as far as we know is true and also that corona virus is a lot more deadly than the flu which is far as we know is also true but it does differ based on age bracket. It is irresponsible reporting to suggest that every person who who takes coup gets corona virus is equally likely to die of it or experienced significant ramifications from corona virus the younger. You are the better chance you have of recovering from this end. Even if you're older the majority of the people who are getting it are indeed recovering. The death rates of even for people eighty yes. It's like fifteen percent which so unbelievably high really frightening. But that means that eighty five percent of the people getting it above the lady are recovering from Corona virus. But it is lack of information that of course is scaring the living. Hell out of everyone. And this means that president trump stepping into the fray and presenting. Some sort of plan here was absolutely necessary. President trump did that last night. He got some mixed reviews. Let's put it that way but first let's get to the actual news yesterday. The World Health Organization declared a pandemic of virus disease covered nineteen according to the Washington Post the WHO declared corona virus abandoning reflecting alarm. The countries aren't working quickly and aggressively enough to fight. Disease Causes Cove in nineteen. They're deeply concerned by both the alarming levels of spreading severity and the alarming levels of an action said W. H. O. Director General throws at Hunnam Aces for weeks now the WHO has hesitated to make pandemic declaration for fear of inciting panic or prompting some countries flag in their efforts. Even though many epidemiologist believed the corona virus had already spread to pandemic levels but on Wednesday. Tether rose noted the widespread scale of the outbreak. Said there are now more than one hundred eighteen thousand cases in one hundred and fourteen countries over. Four Thousand People. Forty two hundred ninety one at that count have lost their lives in the days and weeks ahead. We expect to see the number of coronavirus cases. The number of deaths and the number of affected countries climb even higher tomorrow said that the pandemic is not a word to be used lightly or carelessly. It's award. Misuse can cause unreasonable. Fear or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over leading to unnecessary suffering and death the. Who's announcement does not trigger any new funding protocols or regulations? Basically scares the living. Hell out of everyone is what you get from that. It's not that anybody then gets released. Funding thanks to like if you declared a national emergency in the United States that gives additional powers to the government. That's not the same thing for the. Who when they declare pandemic it. Basically has the same effect as Michael Scott going to the center of the office and shouting. I declare bankruptcy like okay. Thanks Super Helpful okay. Would that said the NBA has now put it season on hold after one player tested positive for corona virus are now finding out that a second player has tested positive for run virus according to the La Times the NBA on Wednesday indefinitely. Suspended the two thousand Nineteen Two Thousand Twenty season after Utah Jazz Center Rudy. Gobert tested positive for cove in nineteen. Just a couple of days ago. Gobert who apparently was coughing and locker room. He jokingly went around He. Pressroom started touching everything. Like as a joke. Started touching all the microphones. He started touching all the reporters stuff while turns out dude head Corona virus and now it turns out that another player has come down with corona virus as well according to the League. The test result was reported. Shortly prior to the tip off of tonight's game between the Jazz Oklahoma City thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time tonight's game was cancelled the effective player was not in the arena the NBA suspending game. Play following the conclusion of tonight's schedule of games until further notice or now living inside space. Jam I if you remember the plot of space jam. All the players refused to play because they are afraid that they're going to be infected with the alien viruses locker room the NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps moving forward in regards to the corona virus. Pandemic Mark Cuban. Who's the owner of the Dallas Mavericks? He came out yesterday. He said that he's going to try and find a way to continue paying his hourly employees which is really cool thing to do. Obviously the Lakers and clippers were considered favorites for the championship. Lakers landed in China for exhibition games. After an international incident. This was just. The end of last year Lakers employees are being advised to work from home for the foreseeable future. The clippers will not practice on Thursday. Meanwhile we're now finding out the Tom. Hanks Rita Wilson have tested positive for corona virus which is always good news and by good news. I mean just ridiculous in horrifying so even celebrities. Scarola CORONA virus falls on the on the blessed and the un-blessed alike as first reported by deadline the Academy Award winner and his wife or animal -cation in Australia for pre production of a film on Elvis Presley when they began experiencing symptoms hanks wrote in a statement first published by deadline and later share to twitter. We felt a bit tired like we had colds. That's body aches. Read ahead some shows that came and went slight fevers to to play things right as needed in the world right now tested for corona virus and were found to be positive thanks went on to say that he and Wilson will be tested observed an isolated for as long as public health and safety require a meanwhile as I mentioned we. We now have a breaking piece of news that Jazz Star Donovan. Mitchell has tested positive for virus as well jazz players privately say that Rudy Gobert had been clicked careless in the locker room touching other players and their belongings as well. So that's scary stuff. Reuters reporting the president airboats narrow of Brazil is being tested for Corona virus. We know the Health Minister of Great Britain has corona virus. So this thing is it is widespread it is. It is hitting a lot of people. It would not be surprising to me that if universal testing were available in the United States hundreds of thousands of people would have grown a virus. Already that would not be shocking at all the Brazilian government spokesman who met with President Trump last weekend and was pictured standing next to him has now tested positive for corona virus as well so you would hope that the president of the United States has been tested for corona virus. The Brazilian President mentioned is now being monitored for viruses scheduled for the week was cancelled. Both were with Donald Trump and Mike pence last Saturday at mar-a-lago as well so all of this is All of this is deeply disturbing. We're going to get to more of this in just one second and president trump's response which as I say is receiving at best mixed reviews and frankly those mixed reviews are

Everybody rightfully hated the refs in Rockets-Warriors Game 1
"You in the leadoff spot. Following a warriors one. Oh, four one hundred win in game one of the Western Conference semis. This is the series. Everyone's been waiting for. And I feel like Dame lived up to the hype and and following game one now all of the post game discussion and all of the the soap opera that goes into. What makes the NBA great continues here on the Monday morning following James Harden's line? This is an all time line, by the way following a loss. I just want to. Fair chance. I just want them to give me a fair chance to go out. And try to win James harden who shot one less free throw the Kevin Durant did yesterday. They just didn't have it takes a village to stop James harden and takes a village to try to stop the Houston Rockets. I I'd say, Dan, Tony probably did not manage his his rotations the way he wanted to down the stretch you end up with a couple of mismatches with Steph curry being guarded by a and he not start a coach three. And then of course, all the calls about this is the feel like in the NFL we get this every couple of years where you get a new term that sort of takes over the league for a season. Or so Dave, you know, what I'm talking about next up. Dave back, by the way this week. You get these different things like member. Of course, the wildcat was a term one year gay manager was a term one year things. Just like you get a little you get comfortable with the phrase, and you continue to use it the term right now. Of course, we've had load management was a big win this year in the NBA the one we're dealing with right now. We'll last series. It was top locking with the LA clippers. And now, we're dealing with the landing spot the landing spot is now going to be the theme at least until they played team to tomorrow night. So what we're talking about is whether or not these things should be called fouls. When a joke shooter goes up comes down in a spot that maybe wasn't necessarily the same spot. He took off from and what the responsibility of the defensive player is he allowed to move laterally towards the the player who's taken the jump shot as he allowed to come down in the in a similar spot. Does the jump shooter has to contorts his body to get out of the way of the defender. And if so is that a foul, I think those are really mad. It does matter because the Houston Rockets are complaining about it. So let's let's break this down for just a minute. I wanna make a couple of points about a few things here. The Houston Rockets losing this game by four and my dantonio had coach after the game said that at halftime the officials told them. Hey, we missed four calls. We missed a handful of calls and he's saying, hey, if you're going to tell me that too that means there are free throws that we should be having right there at the low. I mean, my my. My assumption or my feeling about this is figuring tell me you miss calls. That's like an empire saying, hey, you know, what I blew a couple of those balls and strikes calls, you probably should have had a few more guys on base. When that dude hit the home run. It's almost like you've earned something here that an official has completely botched completely avoided or not called then he realizes after. Yeah. You know, maybe maybe I did sort of boxed that one. Or maybe I did make a mistake on that one in basketball that directly affects how many points you may have. It's the one game where I can put you at the line with the ball and say here's a couple of free points for your team because of the foul committed by the opposition. So the Antoni was not irate after the game. He gave a comment about we've got to look in the mirror. We've got to figure out what we can do better talking about. How he maybe? He agreed. I think with some of the media questions about whether or not nation have been on the floor at the end there with forty seconds left trailing. And he's out there guarding Steph and Steve Kerr made a comment that at this point of the season in the NBA playoffs when? You've got five guys on the floor. You just are sort of having your guys guard whoever the opposition wants them to guard because you're going to go with your best five guys. They're going to go with their best five and whoever they can guard us whoever they can guard. That's just the situation you're in at that point. Now when it comes to committing these fouls or whether or not these were fouls after the game. Whether or not you agree with what Houston's been saying that they were getting officiated differently. And I don't agree, by the way. I I'm not gonna stand here and say sit here and say that Houston had some major disadvantage in this game. I think the Dame was called pretty consistently though. I will agree that a couple of the calls. The Houston is upset about. We're probably fouls. I know people are upset with the Chris Paul won the technical foul. The first one in my mind, that's a foul the Shaun Livingston bleeping at M M B, and I got into a heated debate about fifteen minutes ago in the bullpen where I did. We did a freeze frame by frame of Chris Paul going taking the shot. You can see shod Livingston's feet come down behind Chris Paul. He's not directly. Under him. But in my mind, he's changed Chris Paul shot enough to where he's invaded his landing spot. And he's committed a foul because Chris Paul does not have the right to where he went up and came back down on now when you flop and Chris Paul did flop on that play. You lose a whole lot of credibility in my mind. If you flop I think, you should be less likely to get called you should be less likely to to to get the foul called in your favor that said, it's probably still a foul. Now, you've got players from the Utah Jazz Rudy Gobert was check it in yesterday on Twitter Jared deadly the nets a lot of players who team seasons are now over of course, watching what everybody's anticipated to be the almost the pseudo Western Conference final between the rockets and the warriors, and they were checking in and Ruediger bare said, hey, my guys in the last round against the rockets were not allowed to close out and defend that aggressively. And then Donovan Mitchell, the young guard for the jazz re tweeted and said, why don't you just give me the twenty five thousand if you've got a complaint about the refs on Twitter. Just throw the cash. My way 'cause you're probably going to get fined anyway, Jared Dudley. The nets went as far as soon as look I don't think anybody deserves to get a foul called when you flop, but that's a foul the Shaun Livingston running by people. I it's polarizing people feel differently about it believe it was a foul. The second one at the end of the ballgame. And Chris Paul gets called when he's trying to throw the ball away. I don't totally agree with that. I do think James harden might have been affected a little bit by the Klay Thompson contact at the top of the key on the the attempted three that did not go in. But you can also look at that. And just say him, and you didn't even get that good of a look at it. There was a guy right in your face. You heaved a three with multiple seconds on the clock. And did not go your way ball gets tossed out of bounds. And the rest is history. Warriors, get the the technical foul and the knock down the free throw to win it. So from the side of the of the Houston Rockets where you lose this game. You feel like it was a -ficiating in a way that was not in your favor. They've been very. It's a word. I'm looking for. They've been political with how they've gone about talking about the officials because they have not called out officials. Exactly, they have not said, hey, this guy botched this call right here. Chris Paul went as far to say, hey, I got to be better. I can't be getting tech new thousand getting ojected from the game almost putting it on himself saying I've got to be better for my teammates. Now, they're upset about the way some of these calls have gone gone down. But they're going about it in the way that the warriors went about it during the first round against the clippers. And that is to contact the league and say, hey, look at all this video that we have of Pat Beverley pushing and pulling and tugging and shoving on Steph curry, you guys have got to keep it out of it. So at the very least here, I think the rockets have now called attention or spotlighted something that is going to be a theme throughout the rest of this series. And that's that it's going to be physical. It's going to be aggressive. These benches are going to get smaller and smaller as we get near the end of this series. But this is only the beginning in my mind. This thing is not going to go away. Anytime soon, by the way, we didn't even mention the Friday night. This is how how intense game one was even mentioned, by the way warriors advanced past the first round of the Western Conference playoffs after fifty point performance from Kevin Durant. Put it out read from the clippers on Friday night warriors less than forty eight hours later, come back to oracle and the beat the rockets who are already sitting in their living room with their feet up waiting for him to get here. And and they stuck it to him. So hey last week. I made a point I made a sort of a plea to to Steve Kerr, San hey, man. You can't be playing these starters like thirty three thirty four thirty five minutes any Kevin Durant out there for forty plus last night, forty three minutes from Kevin Durant. He goes thirty five points, three assists, five rebounds. He may be the hottest streak we've ever seen him on as a member of the warriors. I say that sort of just because I I'm being a victim of the moment here with how much a Kevin Durant. Spent successful since the eight shot performance in game two of round one. When everybody kinda lost their heads, saying, hey. He's he's not locked in. He doesn't want. It that bad. I said do just like Kevin Durant. Kevin durant? And what did he say, David? Kevin Durant attacking me Celeste. I thirty five points to lead all warriors scores. He goes twelve or fifteen from the line was a great note here, by the way from Anthony Slater, saying, you know, we talked about how aggressive he's been in people want to say, well, he's dishing too much. He's not getting to the rim. Nobody said anything about that. By the way in the last five games that he's played. But Kevin Durant. Attempted fifteen free throws yesterday. He's taken seventy four this entire postseason Hughley averaged six and a half free throws a game in the regular season. He's averaging ten and a half a game right now in the postseason. He's taking over Kevin Durant right now, maybe at the prime and the peak of his career. He's making sure the warriors are going to have a damn good shot didn't back to the Western Conference. Who is he? Kevin durant? All right. We've got some great sound from yesterday's post game. We haven't even had to mention the giants getting swept out of oracle part of it was not good. Derek rodriguez. Did not have it yesterday. We'll get into some of that the sharks tied one one and their series in the as take another sweep at the hands of the Blue Jays the one team. The giants can beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The as can't figure them out swept twice in the last two weeks by that team. We got some great sound, Mike Keown, Tony Steve Kerr. And James harden, San all I'm saying is give me a chance all we're saying. Dave is give James harden a chance Draymond green was not having it with that comment

"So he's he's really solid along. That's my that's my defense play. Well, you got number two, Mike. I Paul George my number two. Jaanus number two for me. Mike point guard all five positions number two defense in the league. A lot of those to him and Brooke Lopez's protecting their pay. I we on this number two. I honest as Well, Paul George who third Rudy Gobert Monmouth three was Joel and be like the exit when he's not there shows. And I think that's that's that's the important thing for for the big, man. Like, I said I gave the advantage for the parameter and why they to me is a little bit different. But at the same time for the big man, you'll notice when Joel is gone. The thing about Rudy Gobert for me is this when he's gone Derrick favors steel does a very good job. I know he's not Rudy or Joel. But the dares there's a there's not that big of a difference from Rudy's not on the floor. Statistically, he. Sure. Yeah. When Derrick favors there is very very very slight. I just looked it up. I looked up his on off number suit. That's why he wants his percentages weren't as high as like, a mouse Turner, or Joe and son was number three on my list. They were top five defense. And he is the best player. My won't problem with him. Is that he when he plays like twenty five minutes a game. And it's not because he's a foul trouble or anything. They just have their rotation where him assume bonus can't really play together. And I would love to get more than twenty five minutes per game. So you can really showcase how great of a defender. He is. But I guess nobody pays attention to the pace with. Yup. So increase the begin three bucks again. Yup. Yep. My you're there. I really go beer. Okay. So yeah, I think we all had around the same. Different ones. I love knows too many games play. And you know, if he plays their next one next fan question comes to k- curb who says most surprising player this season for y'all pass gas dot com. When you talk about surprising. Not improve surprising. I don't think anyone. Expected PASCAL Siaka, even even people that liked him a lot and we're fans of him. I don't think they expected this type of season from to jump. It's a base Laborde align all star. So when y'all watch him does he remind you Lou Alday? No. He's darkest hail. He may look like Louis. No, no, just like, please. No, he hands the ball. He's longer. I can kinda see what you say. Though emails. I'll see like when I'm watching the owned. There's just sold similar to the shadow blue hinder the ball a little bit when he was in Chicago, not as Pasqua not as much, but he could hinder the ball, but he would do pick and rolls with Nolan boozer. Like, he did all that stuff. Just like he does any and LOL shot out of corner. That's when I think in the War, I think about pile-up job pump fake one dribble. Pull up. John rate has all sad. And then I'll get corner three. People don't understand that. Video man, I showed you video of him killing. Lebron Derek used to say that while dangle is one of the better shack rate is an a league and you're like. If you say games, you versus LeBron James you'll see you know, like he just you could see him like creating a shot..
"rudy gobert" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Angeles Rams in France and our talking for the last ninety minutes. I'll silly it's been this is the first day all week we've been talking about the Super Bowl and the match ups and the quarterbacks with Brady and golf and old school new school just getting into those storylines and angles for the weekends the first time because I I truly believe that baseball with Bryce Harper news and the casino taken the odds off the board that dominated a lot of the news as well as run with it. We had to of course, I mean, I was going to need is just smoke and mirrors. But who knows who knows what's going to happen? Maybe something happens on Super Bowl. Sunday adds a good way with baseball to get. That's like a habit. It's not going to have not that it won't happen on that day. It won't happen this weekend. I don't think but also along with the baseball free agent slow, Bryce Harper news. There was the NBA which obviously started off with the Anthony Davis requesting a trade that he got fine. And then boom porzingas gets traded to the Dallas Mavericks. We were talking about that a couple of days now today. I don't know if you heard about this. But Rudy Gobert who's pretty damn good to say, the least right? He's pretty good for the Utah Jazz. He broke down in tears after being snubbed. For the all star the all star team. He lost a million dollars is if he made the all star team he's going to get a million dollars. But Rudy Gobert did not get elected to the all star week. And then he got a little upset. Here's his peers all over social media just into Rudy Gobert. No love lost. Don't know mercy. Isaiah Thomas tweeted out come on too. Big to be crying like that. Evan turner. Big fella must have already spent his all star bonus our very own Draymond green. I guess I should cry to know, Charlotte. Everybody was his all over Rudy Gobert isn't lost a million dollars. That'd be pretty damn upset to probably break down in tears. If I lost a million dollars. But what does Rudy Gobert making this year? Even if he even if he were to be a replacement player he would not get the bonus. He had to be selected initially. So. I don't mean to what is it fifteen points, thirteen rebounds. That's what he's averaging during the season is great not standing and a lot of people. Don't like the rebound stat. I do I like when he grabs boards, especially. Yeah. Of course, you need them. Yes. You do. So he's already mean earning a base of twenty two million. Who does he make it in front of? Yokich? Oh, Yokich is. Is having a hell of a year. No, I'm not. I'm not saying that it was going to Saint like just in in his in his mind who's making any question. He doesn't have the numbers. He just doesn't this. He's a really good player. He's the reigning defensive player of the year, damn fine. But that doesn't mean that that makes you an all star. I know I know I just it's just more. What's more Scillies? Not that he was crying. Just blowback back from everybody. Just I love that. But that's what the NBA is though. You don't see that a lot anywhere else. This was kind of light and playful wasn't it. Don't you think? Vijay that's line play for family too. Big to be crying like that. Yeah. That's a joke. But that's something. You do when you're just not going around with the guys. Sometimes in the NFL when players are getting a little more venomous, isn't it? This little more animosity to it. Well, here's the other thing too. If it's Seddon persons one thing on Twitter and most of these guys have hundreds of thousands, if not millions of followers. That's another. Okay. That to me. I mean, that's a bigger platform. Very true. Then what they're, you know, just hanging around the soil, whatever shooting around. Yeah. So you're NFL players in the locker room. Yeah. It's going to be more vicious, but it's in the locker room. It's not on social media, right? To me. It's selfish. I get it. It's a million dollars. It's selfish. Wait. I didn't get in the all star game. Like you all start. Right. I mean, yes, it's your first you're trying, but that's a selfish thing. Well, the NBA is a selfishly selfish league. It promotes that it promotes that I don't necessarily have a problem with that. I don't to be honest with you when it comes to the NBA the way that they can just broken record with the way that they market their superstars. But that's that's gonna that's gonna be on the the cons list. The pros and cons list of the having league like this. Yeah. Some people put that on the cons list. I'd say it's right in the middle more than anything. I don't mind players are selfish. Like that. I think is funny when everyone's on social media trying to check them. I what are you crying for too? Big for that. That's what I thought was funny. I just it's the area. I would agree on that. I just I don't know what it is about it. I love it so much. I think they do everything right? And the players right ish rightish. What's the one thing? You think the NBA does the worst? Let's the worst thing that they do. I'm just curious. Deep question because I feel like there's so many things that you could say about every league that they don't do right. NFL? I will say I have problem with officiating province Commissioner for sure there's a lot of lying and shadiness that goes on in the NFL. There's no promotion for individualism in that league. Major league baseball you. I don't necessarily have a problem with the whole league other than what goes on outside the field. I'm talking about the way you can promote players the way that just their marketing of superstars that's the only thing. I have baseball NBA the what they do wrong that. I don't like I just love the Lille one thing that that they've kind of corrected the last year two, and it's getting they're trying to address it more is the lottery. Yeah. Yeah. And so like Hanky and all that stuff. I can a better your chances that has been one thing. That's always bugged me as I just I don't like taking in general. Was it Boris that that had his idea of of teams at tank, you know, if you don't win seventy two games, you do not get you know, the top pick. And or whatever the games was that he came up with. And I was like, yeah. Actually, it's awesome. That because right now, it's set in stone. If you have the worst record in baseball, you get the topic. I love the fight to win. And if you happen to not fight that day not the entire season. Just one day. That's fine. But the entire season the tanking stuff that that that bugs me the NBA kind of taking a little onus on everything. And putting the odds more say more of the favor of the the middle teams, whatever but teams are not taking they're not gonna they're not benefiting. Now, they could still just eliminate it. If you don't win twenty games, you're not going to get the top pick. Because for me that I just feel there's a couple of teams that you're gonna come on good point good point. I like I like the way that you broke that down. I I have a hard time trying to quibble with you over that. But you do look at some of these teams like you have Chicago Cleveland, New York, it's obvious. What some of these teams are doing and what they've been doing for a couple of months the Knicks are tanking. I do I absolutely do you see if you put in that system where you have to win X amount of games to be part of the draft like say you have to win twenty exactly twenty or the seventy game is a major league baseball. Don't you think teams will exploit that to win seventy games? And then just call it quits, it'd be a little bit harder tank. If you're doing that, though, it'd be harder. But there's always a way to exploit know, always gonna be always gonna be was there ever a way to completely eliminate it? I don't know if that's how I don't know if you can. Tango chance. I like France idea of having a cap on games. It makes it better. It makes it I think. It's not foolproof. But it's a band aid at least. Yeah. It's a band aid, at least date might be aid and water though. And then think about the devil's advocate that there to what if the teams is truly bad only when fifty game true too. And they are actually going to get good. There's a lot that leads up to that answer. Interesting. We saw the Astros just tanked because they had all these young. But they were giving dude's chances in the big leagues that you're going. Why here why is he there and the losses were just piling up because you're going to they're not doing anything to try to make themselves better. You have to find like there's so many teams right now you could say throughout major league baseball that are not trained to do anything to get better. Yeah. Right. A team that we saw for a little bit. A couple of years now in the reds. They've been trying they've been on almost everyone. I love that. I love it. It's so funny to look at the Houston Astros record. Let's start in twenty eleven and go all the way up to the World Series win hundred six losses, and I'm gonna lost his own. This is twenty eleven one zero six one zero seven one eleven ninety two. They finally get into the post season in fifteen obviously, we know happened in seventeen but you have one to three years of one hundred losses and a couple of years in ten and night where they didn't do anything either. So you had three full years of one hundred plus losses before they slowly started to climb their way back. Everybody thinks that the Astros that we're kind of the first team to do that. Go look at the nationals record nationals had this before every buddy this year. Although no one really talks about that. I mean, they didn't win the World Series to nobody. But think about the bonds like when he hit seven fifty six look at that roster. They had. Look at look at the the nationals roster that night. Yeah. I mean, they had players that was probably at the tail end of like having the players that you're going, man. They really bought on a lot of guys, right? They Dmitri young was in there. I believe Zimmerman was there John Lennon was there. But then you're having these guys you're going. Oh, man. And then they happen. Look, the national thing is what I feel like one of those where you could say the tanking was bad. But they really happened to luck out two years in a row. You got I'm not gonna call them both generational players. But you got some super superior talents in Strasbourg and Harper back to back years. That's insane. Yeah. You're right up two thousand eight one zero two as far as losses for the nationals. Oh, nine one zero three ninety three the next year losing Eighty-one there were five hundred team and twenty eleven and then. Into the postseason losing the divisional round of the cardinals. But. I find that to be fascinating. So I don't want to talk about that though. No one talks about the nationals. When you're right everyone thinks it was the Astros that did it I well the Astros. Did it? I think more more or less Astros were the team that became so analytic heavy right there the team that started. Not even started. But were. The challenge I would say to to moneyball because they challenged some of the thoughts of moneyball and went further. Right. So more more teams more people talk about what the Astros did in the nationals because we so analytically based. I mean, everything became about the numbers about you know, how they were from. They tore the whole thing down. They literally toward the whole thing down. I mean, don't you think that's why guys were looking at the Astros. Like what the hell is going on? Don't you think? That's why the Chris career thing happened. I'm breaking into this database and see what's going on the corals except for breaking in the Astros database was it was we looking at that. Was he looking at the the analytics and how they're doing things. He was looking for injuries. That's why I think a lot of it was based on injuries seen who is. Heard and could we have like a little not so much taking advantage of those teams? But taking advantage of those teams are going to give up on certain guys. Can we steal them? Right. Bye. Bye Bilo sell high type thing it didn't work out for him, by the way. No, no. He's one of four guys to be banned from baseball. So for four years, then he get four years. Yep. Yeah. I believe he did. But again, the reason why we talk about the Astros. What's the other part? They want a World Series. They won and better. And at the time at that time. I still think the nationals were talked about more than them. And what they did. Until the Astros real until they made the playoffs. And when they made the playoffs think that was in was that fifteen if flipped everything. Started to flip everything. Slowly, climbing their way back. Fascinating gentlemen. I find that to be very interesting. Then taxation. Hey, real quick on the all-star thing to bear. Yeah. Do you like Dwayne Wade in in Dirk Nowitzki being added by by Adam silver? Yeah. I do because I think those two guys have I mean, obviously an unbelievable legacy but an all star weekend like this. You gotta give a nod to some of these generational play. Of course. Wade and whiskey what they've done in what they've contributed to the NBA are in that category for me. So I I love the non from silver and get juiced up for the NBA all star weekend. But still it's you gotta respect those guys have been around for a long time, and they're champions baseball..
