It is now 6 38 on Wall Street and it's time to take a look at stocks and some of the names that are moving in the pre market this morning for that. We're joined by Bloomberg reporter Laura Wright. Top red story has to do with Elon Musk and of course that is moving shares of Tesla, all has to do with Twitter. What's the latest? Yeah, both kaza and Twitter moving to the upside. That seems an aberration as in recent times. We've become used to an inverse correlation between the look, Musk has sold almost $7 billion of his Tesla shares. You could call this a form of damage limitation, Musk is preparing for the eventuality that he may have to buy Twitter. We don't try to get out of that deal. Twitter is rallying and in accordance to one analyst done out from Wedbush because it seems that this deal is more likely Elon Musk maybe forced to buy. And some news in the crypto space this morning. What's that? Yeah, coinbase down 7% ahead of the reported a record loss in the second quarter and revenue that fell short of expectations. Coinbase has narrowed their projection for average monthly user transactions for the rest of this year. What analysts find concerning though is the decrease in retail trading. That said coinbase has partnerships with heavyweights such as meta and BlackRock, which will take some time to take off. What is car lots? Well, this is an auto dealer and it's agreed to merge with shift technologies a fellow car dealer car lot is up 24% in free market trading. This will be a stock for stock transaction. And the street feed geographic overlap and the opportunity to unlock synergies with the new company. And finally, Roblox, I'm going to answer what that is. Yes, a Roblox is a children's and teenage game maker right now it's gone. 14%. Neither do I had to look it up before. No, not a game player myself. But basically, it reported bookings that missed analysts estimate. Another one bites the dust you could argue. We saw this with Nvidia earlier this week, which itself experienced a lack of demand for chips necessary for high quality PC gaming. Now that economies have reopened, cost of living is starting to bite. It seems that demand for gaming is decreasing. Okay. Laura, thanks. I appreciate it. Bloomberg reported Laura Wright. Looking at stocks as a whole ahead of the cash hope not Wall Street. We have, right now, S&P futures, the human future is down 9 points. Dow futures, they're up 64 points, and the NASDAQ even made a futures right now. Up 32 points. Of course, all that could change after 8 30. That's when we get the all important inflation print for the month of July. And right now, as we look at treasuries, the inversion continues 47 negative 47 basis point difference between twos and tens. The twos, three 25, the ten year yield right now, 2.78%. You're listening to Bloomberg daybreak. Progressive notes that most people don't get to experience making a game winning touchdown, or a walk off home run. So we're going to talk to you like you did something great, so you can bask in the glory. Oh man, I was there that time that you bundled your home auto motorcycle in other vehicles with progressive. That was awesome. People were freaking out. I bet you get this all the time, but can I get an autograph If you can't

"ryan mcdonald" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"I could still ask out. I don't know if there's an easy answer to this, but I'm sure you've spent some time thinking about this. And I'm sure you've talked with your peers around the league about this. And CBA talks are happening as we speak, more or less. And coming soon in earnest. Is there a collective bargaining agreement solution to this? I have to believe that the league as much as they love the player movement and transactions and trade rumors and all that stuff. It keeps the world going round. But it's destabilizing. I'm sure that the board of governors and most GMs are not thrilled with the state of things. Is there a solution to this to be found and presumably one of the Players Association will actually sign off on? I'm really glad you asked me this question Howard, especially to finish up because you know how we talk about Larry Bird rights and the Larry Bird exception and all that. I hope this is the Ryan McDonald rule if it comes into effect. I'm sure I'm not the first one who thought of it, but I will take credit for it. So let me back up. One of the things I realized when I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago covering free agency for NBA TV was obviously we had a show plan to talk about Bradley Beal and Zach lavine and Jalen Brunson and then, as you know, right before the start of free agency, this KD trade demand slash request wherever you want to call it news broke, and that obviously we changed our programming and what I realized, Howard. And this is like a revelation, at least to me. I'm not that bright, but a light came on. I said, his contract extension has not even started yet. Think about that. He signed the contract extension last August, but we were talking about this in late June, the extension kicks in on July 1. So before his contract extension even started, the four year extension with the Brooklyn Nets a year ago, we were asking for a trade. I don't think that's good for business. In my opinion. So my solution, the Ryan McDonald rule, is in the new and this would have to be collectively bargained. But in the new CBA, if a player signs a max contract, he is not eligible to be traded until there are two years remaining on the deal. And the reason for that is going back to what you referenced with Paul George is because with two years left on the deal from a team perspective, you can get decent value as opposed to expiring contract. And then from a player perspective, you can tip the team, say, look, this is working out. It's not great for you. It's not great for me. Let's try to find a new home for a team that maybe has more of a future for me where I'm a better fit. I just think in that way it would take it off the table in both directions sour. So with two years left, so whether Philadelphia wanted to trade Ben Simmons or Ben Simmons wanted to trade, it can't happen. Same with Devin Booker and Phoenix, or Carl Anthony towns, or

"Good morning, I'm Karen Moscow, along with Tom Keene and Lisa Abramovich in the S&P 500 ish lower at the open down one and a third percent on 50 points at 37 51. The down Jones Industrial average down one and a half percent or 464 points at 30,310 NASDAQ down three quarters of a percent or 84 points at 11,159, ten year treasury down 1830 seconds to yield at 3% that yield on the two year 3.24%, nymex crude oil is down 3.6% on $3 52 cents at $92 78 cents a barrel. Co makes gold down 1.8% on $31 40 cents at 1704 ounce. The Euro at .9976 against the dollar. The yen, one 39.27. And looking at Bitcoin, this morning is set for 10% at $19,730. Also watching shares of JPMorgan Chase down almost 4% right now. Tom and Lisa. Thanks so much, Karen. And I really can't say folks. So the numbers that we're seeing on the screen, how difficult it is to do it, Karen Bosco, I was doing with all the different measurements. I mean, all of us are struggling with new measurements. I look at yen one 39 28 up 1.4%, Lisa, is an example. Can you imagine we're going to get gold 1600 back to 2020? We're not there yet. Today feels like things are breaking through certain types of levels. They didn't want to break through before, and there's no better place to look at that than the Euro dollar. And the idea of breaking through parity. There was a floor for that for so long. We have breached that floor and have stayed there, unlike what we saw a couple days ago. So now we stop with an equities bonds currencies and commodities. We had Larry McDonald on earlier with an inflammatory essay on emerging market, I guess it's catching up with developed market. We need to find a center tendency, and that is dean current. Macro risk advisers thrilled he could join us this morning truly expert on the dynamics of the guesstimates of what futures are guessing. Dean, when you look at the vix in the futures dynamics of this volatility measurement of a standard import 500, not what the present Vic says, but the future guesses what do they say? Well, the vix, as you suggesting, there's a curve. And the curve is essentially got a shape that on balance is relatively flat, but it's actually a little bit upward sloping. So you've got a little south of 28, but go out to October and you're right near 30. So I wouldn't call that a prediction, Tom, I would call that a level of risk premium. It's a market clearing price that needs to be evaluated in the context of a lot of different things. We're getting economic data. And of course, profits are going to sway the level and the direction of the S&P quite a bit. But there's also this big environment for risk premium. And I think your conversation with Ryan McDonald is going to touch on some of the things that I'm interested in well in as well, which is the level of implied volatility that we're seeing in these sister asset classes. Credit currency. These are all suggesting chaos. We're not seeing chaos in the equity market. And I would just say my experience personally is that sometimes the equity market is just a little bit behind the signals that emerge from other asset classes. I mean, what I'm hearing from you is you don't want to be fully invested in equities here down 500 on the Dow, but as dean kern is saying that the sister markets as you call them are going to tell us the cash is comfortable right now. I think that's right. I think the most valuable system market for us to pay attention to is the risk free market itself, which of course is anything but the move index approaching one 50 million a couple of days ago. I talked to a lot of folks who trade fixed income derivatives for a living. And they'll tell you that even at one 50, it's just not a sale. The degree of movement on a daily basis across the entire curve is it's something to be concerned about. This is the biggest market in the world. It's the bedrock for the entire global system. And I'm looking at not just levels of implied volatility, but there are other indices and your colleagues at Bloomberg have been kind enough to develop one that I follow closely. Essentially measures liquidity in various government bond markets. And what you see is that the deviations from fair value on an intraday basis, not just in the U.S., but in Germany and Italy and Japan. They're all really at all time highs. And so the robustness of this risk free market is starting to fray. I think it's a big concern. And I don't think you can really get comfortable with equities on a major basis until you see that decelerated in fixed income. Dean, one of the reasons why I was really happy that we were going to get to speak to you today is because you had one of the most prescient comments of the year when you said that inflation is transitory is a new subprime is contained. And here we are and the market is catching up to you. What is the fallout most likely going to look out? How close are we to a capitulation that will create at least a little bit of even a near term floor? Yeah, I mean, it's so difficult to know. I mean, of course, it's a moving target. And you've got a couple of different things happening at once. The fed is trying to slow the economy down. They talk a lot about financial conditions. To me, that's really just saying the S&P needs to be lower. I mean, if you if you map financial conditions indices versus the S&P, you'll see a very negative correlation. And so the fed's job is done in some ways when it achieves a bit of a lower S&P. I just don't think we're there yet. And I'd also say, I don't think a 27 vix is evidence of capitulation. I study risk events for a living. When I look back at the prominent ones and I'll take the pandemic and the GSB out of it because there are altogether different, but when you look at the other ones, you can do low 40s. He does just not there. He does risk events for a living. So he can do therapy on 15 year olds? Well, I hope so. That's a great question. And I think a lot of people will be curious for the answer. Post pandemic. Yeah, exactly. And not that this is being spoken from personal experience. Of course not. But asking for a friend that the vix in my household is quite high. I think that there is a question, dean, as we take a look at the scenario that we're in and you say that there's still more to go. Do you think that this week has been a pivot point? And I say this because we're starting to see the downward revisions for the S&P roll in with Bank of America leading the charge as people start to think about a 100 basis point rate hike from the fed, a more aggressive fed realizing that they were wrong and that they continue to be. Yeah, I think it's always difficult to disentangle how much of a decline in the S&P has been the multiple and how much of it's been sold earnings estimates. And a lot of the discussion was, well, the multiples come down, but the forward estimates have not come down. You can't really disentangle the two of those. The market's down 20%. That's a lot. That's one of the larger drawdowns we've seen. But we also know that this inflation process is just it's so variable. It's so unknowable in the words of Janet Yellen herself. It's a

"Davis from Lakers nation dot com, popping and Sean, how are you? Not gonna lie, getting a little restless. I was looking at myself shamefully because Matt literally just said it. But no, like even if we don't get Kyrie, I just want the whole madness to stop. It's gonna happen. It's not gonna happen. Just so for my mental health. But no, I think it's still gonna happen. I just don't know when. I agree that it's going to happen because we've heard from so many people now. That there is no other team that wants Kyrie, even Jake Fisher did a show today. With Seth part now. And even he said, same thing. Nobody else wants Kyrie. The Lakers are the only team that's keeping up to date on what's going on with Kyrie. You had Ryan McDonald former GM of the suns, put that out there yesterday on Twitter was asked, was that rank? How desirable these contracts are on rank but rate? How desirable these contracts are on a scale of one to ten. He said, Russ is a one Kyrie is a two. Sheesh. People don't. People don't want these contracts. They'll reason why the Lakers want Kyrie is because that's the two and it fits better with LeBron and AD. So that gives me confidence. That ultimately gets done because where else is he going to go, but it just feels like both sides are doing everything they can to assert their own leverage on the situation. And both of them have arguments for why they would have the nets are going to look at it and say, you guys got to move rough. Russ, your season is DOA. If you don't. So you're desperate. So give us everything. And the Lakers can say, okay, you're going to pay Kyrie $37 million to sit at home next season because you know he's not playing for you anymore, right? You can't trade him to any other team. We're the only team willing to give you anything for him. So you better take a discount on this deal. And where this ultimately lands probably somewhere in the middle, but right now it just feels like it's a staring contest..
"ryan mcdonald" Discussed on Jeff Goodman Basketball Podcast
"Welcome ladies and gentlemen to a very special edition of the field of 68 after dark tonight. I'm going to be joined by four of the brightest minds that are covering the NBA draft as well as Jeff Goodman who somehow got on the Zoom and got him this call and got into the show. I don't know who let him in here. But we're going to put together a full first round mock draft. This is the way it's going to work. This is what's going to happen. There are 6 of us here. Each of us have been assigned 5 first round picks. We will each make those picks as if we have a GM of those organizations. It might be what we would do in those spots. It might be trying to project what that team will do. The only real rule is don't do anything that is too crazy. Only a little bit of crazy. Let me introduce my panel. We have CMC, a draft correspondent for the athletic and the host of the game theory podcast. We have Jeremy Wu who is Sports Illustrated NBA draft insider. We have Matt Babcock, who was a basketball lifer and the senior draft analyst for basketball news dot com. He's also a former NBA agent. We have Ryan McDonald who spent a decade in Boston and Phoenix in different NBA front offices. And we also have Jeff Goodman who does one mock draft and calls himself a stadium insider..
"ryan mcdonald" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"What if they had suspended him, the way the suspension works is if it's a team issued suspension, then after three games, as long as it's a suspension of four games or longer, you can move the player to the suspended list, and then that opens a roster for you to bring somebody in. Then that's actually did this a couple of years ago. It was a league issued suspension, which it's a couple more games as all that takes to trigger this because they're really making sure they punish you when they suspend a player. But they did it with Wilson Chandler was suspended. I think that was for performance enhancing drugs with him. And it was he was out and if you remember, they'd cut him on trumper at the beginning of the preseason and then what they did was they came back and they came back around with, all right, so what we're going to do is we're going to bring jumper back. But after 5 games of pass, because then we can move Chandler to the suspended list, and then they brought trumper back. And then by the time Chandler was ready to go, they waved chomper and moved on. But as Ryan McDonald pointed out, that gets messed. Yeah, that starts to fight. Then he probably would have fought it in that would have been a huge fight with the Players Association, the league, would have got involved. And with this case here, the basics saying, hey, they which is still argument between the Players Association league on whether or not they really agreed to this reduction in pay, because they can game miss due to COVID or not. COVID band aids and vaccination status. Let's be clear if it's jaylen Brown or Ken birch, they're not punishing them with salary laws. Who had COVID? But with Kyrie, what would happen is it just sort of become a fight between the nets, the league, the Players Association, and of course, Kyrie himself of, hey, wait a minute, now you're suspending me because of this and this and that. And basically they're saying, hey, we already agreed. If you can't play in the home games, you can't play. So Kyrie will be kind of much like Ben Simmons, will just be sitting there on a roster spot at 30 plus $1 million on the inactive list night after night until something results. And the other side of that too, of having telling of not telling Kyrie that hey, we're just suspending you or anything like that is then your frame that relationship because Kyrie and Kevin Durant was a package deal, right? And so now you've got hardened in the mix as well. And from everything we've heard, the nets and those stars. And the Lakers and their stars as well. This isn't unique. But the nets and those stars, it's very much a partnership versus an employer employee relationship. And so if you're going to go down that road, you could risk damaging not just your relationship with Kyrie, but also with Kevin Durant, also with James Harden. And so I think the nets did a really nice job of walking a very fine line here. But like you said, we'll see where all of this goes. You mentioned Ben Simmons. We don't know if he's going to play or not. We know he showed up. That doesn't mean he's playing in games. So who knows what path that goes down and now we're talking about two of the top teams in the east, two of the teams that should be at least, and they both are dealing with pretty dramatic issues. And now it looks like both are facing not having key pieces heading into the season, but maybe that resolves itself at some point part of the way through. So there's still a lot left up in the air, and it could make a huge impact in terms of who comes out of the Eastern Conference. Yeah, big time. If you're a Milwaukee, Boston. Atlanta, New York, you're Chicago, maybe even you're sitting there kind of thinking. All right, hey, this is good for us. You know, more the first handful of teams I mentioned in their Milwaukee Boston Miami. Those teams because I think they're looking at it and saying, hey, we're Atlanta too. I shouldn't leave them out. They're probably really thinking, hey, this is they're now both of these two teams. I mean, we forget. I think that Philly was the number one thing going into the playoffs last year. I think that's almost been wiped out of our collective memories because of how the playoffs went for them. But those were two of the best teams, as you said, and now they both come back to the pack significantly. And that is good for those other teams in that sense and till this resolves. And let's be clear once again, everybody keeps saying it. It's not going to be Kyrie Irving. I saw that it gave today. Yeah, if that's the way this goes a lot of people know a lot of things have come on, so that's not on the table. And I think kind of to what you were saying before, part of the reason why that's not on the table is you don't want to risk upsetting the other stuff. And the last thing I want to say is just to be clear about this. So Sean marks did which ton of credit to him. He did an impromptu press conference after they put this announcement out. And he came out and said, at the end of the day, this was my decision along with Joe side, the owner of the team. It was our decision. But he did say we talked with Steve Nash and we did talk with Kevin Durant and James Harden. And basically, that's probably hey, guys, this is what we think is best for the team. And let's just say if Durant and harden were like, no, it's not and really threw up a huge fight. They probably might have gone a different direction here. But clearly they did this with at least them on board to the necessary level of being on board. And I think you've got to wonder, does it start to become, you know, hey, we're going to put pressure on. My guess is to, this also removes some of the questions of every time Kyrie played in a road game. He has to do media and was it going to turn into he gets asked about it every single time and they're getting asked about it. Now a little bit you can kind of those questions will come up for the next probably two, three weeks and then it'll start to kind of go away if he's still out. It does in that respect kind of become like an injury where you just stop asking about it because eventually it's going to be look, they're not here. That's the answer you're going to get. So yeah, I'm very curious to see if this continues to go this way or you feel the pressure of. All right, yo, I want to be there with my guys and you don't want to go 'cause as much as tyrese a guy who can dig in. He is somebody who I think feel some responsibility to his teammates and those kind of things. At least some level. So we're going to find out here, what level he feels that to them. And it's to all the people who jumped in my mentions and like, hey, you know, stop giving the guy grief. It's a personal choice. Well, it's his employer's choice too. For him not to play. And they're still going to pay him the essential bargained amount. It's just that's going to be how it goes. Yeah. Yeah, and it makes sense as a net decision. And if we want to go, you know, truly front office here, Sean marks. I mean, that's how you handle the media and how you handle the optics around a situation is a very important part of a GM's job. That sometimes maybe we don't pay enough attention to, but that statement that he made in terms of its my decision and Joe size decision rights of taking all of that whatever heat is going to be there. He's saying it's on us, but then also adding in that we did consult with these top players with hardened with Durant with all these other pieces with Steve Nash. So that's saying like, yes, we are incorporating everybody. This is a collaborative process, but we're ultimately the ones that made this decision. It shuts down two big questions there in terms of is Kevin Durant on board? Is James Harden on board, right? Because you address that without actually also putting any blame as far as the one who made the decision on them. You're taking that heat, but also showing that they are part of the process. And so that was just master for masterfully played in terms of GM ing if we.

"Executive also as an executive with the Boston Celtics. And we'll recap Game one of the NBA Finals and try to get a feeling on how Ryan thinks Game two is going to play on out. So Ryan McDonald comes your way at the top of the hour. I was reading today. Matt Sullivan. And if you're not familiar with the name, he has a next book that is either outer. It's coming out where he had incredible access with the Brooklyn Nets. So we've talked about him before we talked about excerpts that have come out from the book. I guess. He recently just did an interview And in the interview, he said Back when K D talk about Kevin Durant was on Golden State. Steve Kerr took Kevin out for a drink when he was sick of Kevin Durant being on his burners and checking his D ends all the time. He said. You know what I respect about LeBron. I respect the fact that when he got to Miami, and he got sick of the narrative, sick of the haters all the talk. You know what he did? LeBron just said bleep it and was great. Same with Michael. Same with Kobe. Same with all the greats. They all had to say bleep it and they were all on that next level. So you know what you gotta do. You just got to go out and say bleep it like LeBron did. He also went on to say Matt Sullivan. That Kurt tried to get Katie to stop beefing with kids. It's a funny sentence to read on Twitter, but he failed, he said. You could just see the strain on his face that third year on the Warriors. He was staring at that phone all the time. So we can't get over this. He's out there having goat cop five debates, trying to make sure he's in that conversation on Twitter, he say, he says he's over it, but he's not, And I don't think he's really changed since the Bay. The only difference is Brooklyn. Let him be him and doesn't get in his face. Like Kurt did. You look back at Golden State and we'll get into Kevin Durant says Durant's response in just a second, but you look back at Golden State. Steve Kerr said this before, and I know he was annoyed when this quote came out. But he said it before how it was perceived. I thought it was portrayed accurately. He did talk about how the year after Durant left. And yes, there was a lot of injuries that did factor into that as well. He did enjoy coaching that group more than the year prior and sure he didn't enjoy the losing. But he was actually allowed to coach and try to develop things. And I'm also sure what was part of that was that Steve Kerr didn't have to deal with all the extra drama. That was associated when Kevin Durant was on the team. When you look back at K D and Draymond Green's relationship Now let's be real here. Big reason. Why Steve Kerr took Kevin Durant out for this drink and said this Would have to imagine would be because and Steve Kerr is a smart guy as we all know. He was able to identify. That if Kevin Durant care so much about people saying when he's winning two NBA Finals, MVPs two championships and he's responding to people on Twitter are saying, like when a real ring, bro, You took the easy way out all that stuff. Steve Kerr, New That eventually K d was going to leave. So in one breath, you can talk about how you enjoyed coaching a little bit more since Kevin Durant did leave, but in that same breath, you tried to take Kevin Durant out for this drink. Would think part of it would be because yes, you were annoyed with all the questions you had to be asked about the Twitter and all the attention to it, but really, you could identify and have to imagine. That If Katie gets this sensitive about the conversation and the narratives on Twitter, it would eventually drive him out of the Bay Area. He's not. You know the way I interpret that he's right. As I said this to Rick Barry before when he joined us. We've had Rick on a bunch. Rick when Kevin Durant had to make that decision for you to stay where you go, I said to Rick, There's no doubt about it. Kevin Durant is leaving and he goes well, Why would he leave? And this is a little old school verse. Someone that grew up with Twitter and a cell phone in his hand 24 7 like myself. Is people care about what others say about them on the Internet? And some people, you don't block everything out. But some people are are able to reject. The majority of the hate. Others aren't And sure as Durant responding to every tweet No, but he responds to enough where he shows he is sensitive. When you get to Kevin Durant and I said this to Rick and Rick couldn't believe this. I go. He's going to leave because he's concerned about what people say on the Internet that he took the easy road out and even when winning two championships, winning two finals MVPs. He doesn't think he's getting the credit, so he felt like he had to leave. Don't get me wrong. Steve Kerr was right for having that conversation with K D. Also Kevin Durant. It's not wrong to say, especially when you look back at this post season. He got more credit for the performance this year in the playoffs than any credit. He got a golden state and, yes, He did form a super team in Brooklyn, but he was the guy that formed the team. Golden State. He already joined a team that won a championship, then was coming off an NBA Finals loss where they had 73 a historic season. 73 regular season wins. All Kevin Durant had to do, though, was just block out the haters and he still would have been in Golden State. He wasn't able to do that, though, and I'm not saying it's easy, right? Like I'm not comparing myself to Kevin Durant. That would be asinine. There would be a foolish move by me. But someone that has a public job. Someone that has to deal with the job. Where? Egg phase 246789 to the third power constantly tweets me. Hey, you suck. Hey, your show is awful. You know, you go out there and you criticize, um, a certain player or something like when? When I was saying that Big Ben when he was complaining about the Steelers by week being moved Or the game being moved earlier the year with the Covid problem with Tennessee, I people from Pittsburgh..

"I've got to go back and say that all the laws are crazy different in different places but we have a ton of ag leans attorney general manager child support. Yeah so. I'm thinking as far as like scrubber subscriber errors scrubbers air Landlocked i mean. Aren't these things that the title companies should figure it out and tied on insurance would just pay out. You know doesn't really work like the title. Insurance is a thing now but if you start to travel back in time probably around the fifties or sixties so many transaction happen to that title insurance so you see a lot fewer errors currently got it in recent deals but also the everywhere so those are the most challenging issues so and you were running into it repetitively so this is the problem that you're like okay. I can solve this problem. I'm going to have like yeah. Okay so what was the first step then grading a business around this tied to be. I had to get good at it. So i just spend a lotta time figuring these out and is there are a lot of technical details but i had to find the law school. No i didn't. I looked at going to it several years ago. I found that. It was gonna work better for me quarterback all the attorneys a hired. Because i would simply lose a lot of money becoming lawyer basically because education costs. No at that was not a big deal. There was a time. got an entrepreneur. Live time entre. Opportunity costs okay. So instead of going to get your. Jd decided to hire a bunch of attorneys. So is that like a law firm. No no law firm. So i'm a principal and it properties. I buy these folks are my representatives agent. My tourneys so repping meet is all problems. There attorneys that work for me me is it. Are they all a different law firms. Some of independent guys. Some of them worked for firms one of our corporate counsel this us and those again in raja about their different attorneys all time. One is incredible. Drafting docs incredible a case law. Incredible research one of them is the mouthpiece. he's a wheel and deal and son of a gun and he's paperwork wheeling and dealing he's not gonna be right. Yeah so we were able to narrow it down about four guys. That are okay. So you have four or five guys you work with regular basis are that retainer or how does that work yeah. Most of the three of those four are one of them. Works directly with us all time. Gotcha okay so you sought out to solve this problem. You you're quarterbacking attorneys. So when did you first realize that this is something that you could capitalize on as a business so i guess technician you know i became good at it. I'm still in the deals working on exactly. And that's exactly what i'm doing and then i ran into this guy that i went to college with this. Well i've known his sister or his wife and her brothers from a whole life. He says he wants to be real say deal. He's been looking at your pockets and this guy agreed to sell my house and he didn't know what to do and said all right. Let's go with him. We contracts i. And i tell them we're going to split this thing up help you we do it and it comes out to be really good. Deal calls me back the next week after about three or four of those calls. I'm like all right ryan mcdonald. He's our partner company but call and said you know what there's something more here you think you wanna do this..

"If they win the series, you know that they will go through, and then they would play the likely Utah who I think's gonna close out Memphis at home tonight, So no, I don't think they will. That guy. I like you, Tom or in the Clippers Clippers. Really good. That'll be a heck of a serious, I think goes at least six or seven games. But I like what I've seen from Utah that stumble in Game one against Memphis without Donovan Mitchell. With Mitchell back in the lineup. They look very good. I like their balance and depth that more than the things that I feel like encounter on the Jazz. I know what I'm going to get from the Jazz on both ends of the court with the Clippers, as I've shown so far in the Serie Is there wild card and you really don't know seriously serious, even game. The game which Clippers team is going to show up? I just want to go back. Last thing with Ryan McDonagh is always great with us to Brad Stevens. If it did go down the way that they said where they went to Brad and said, Hey, would you want to be the president of basketball operations? And it didn't seem like this was Brad demanding to get the job If he would have said No. Is he still the coach today? Where they would they have moved on from Brad Stevens, even with given an extension back in August. I think they would have let the new president Abascal operations make that decision. Whoever that ended up being so you know again, The Celtics ownership group is very loyal. I was there in 2007 when it would have been very easy for them to move on from Danny, Ancient and Doc Rivers. In particular, the head coach was getting booed during starting lineups that off season we made the deal is bringing in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and everything changed and won the championship in a way. So I bring it up because I think that they would not have proactively made that decision. Zak. They would've hired the president tactical ops and then let him decide the future of Brad Stevens because they feel strongly about Brad. And obviously this move today, shifting him from the bench to the front office shows how the Celtics ownership group feels about Brad as a person as a basketball guy and as a part of their franchise going forward. Ryan. You in the family be will always appreciate it. Thanks so much. Enjoy the games. Exactly. There's Ryan McDonald has enjoyed talking to him or up against the brakes. So let's take one right now. When we come on back my favorite player in the NBA, he just went off last night. He's unbelievable. Like his teammates didn't help him out. We talked and we talked Portland. We talked Denver next.

"It's done every every night or be pro level. Yeah totally and now they're now pro. Level means such a different thing than it did. Land like of course. Not you've got people. Living in training homes training and games sixteen hours a day for some tournament thing can ridiculous though wasn't so much easier when like the eight just have to be better than your three best friends. And then you're the best person in the world that matter exactly fucking hometown hero all day long But but yeah man for sure. That's always been the case like this job. It's like don't really have time to stick around and get good or stay good thing but like the people that excel at this sort of thing are the people can pick up a game quickly and be decent at it off the bat. I feel like that. That i'm pretty good at but who knows like if i actually devoted myself to one game would i ever get e sports. Good at anything probably. Let's let's is the closest i've ever been in terms of like the bliss is the closest i've ever been at feeling like i might be the best in the world at this game at that time now probably but at that time i had won multiple tournaments with people who had ready access to machines because midway sent machines out to a lot of publications and so we just played more of it than they did and we knew that game inside out more than they did and all that sort of stuff and so that feeling of just like you know i. I've traveled the world and played every single person. But i'm i could be that person i don't know i beat to people who worked on the game so some kid in lafayette who's been playing expert. Exactly totally right. Yeah nowadays like who knows but But i feel like there was a window. There may was that guy but we never really put it past but i did win multiple what. I was always a funny thing. Man fucking held ice quarterback. You're like twisted. Yeah for exactly yeah. there was some. It was an episode on the spot and They had tekken tournament at thirty three. Or some namco event and ryan mcdonald had won it and namco gave him this big gaudy trophy. Who and so. And he brought that he had that trophy at the office and like you know it was like an event for the game or something to so it was like i'm talking about the game and and so rich i i think i maybe it was just like we. Here is the greatest player on the planet and he's got the trophy to prove it ryan mcdonald and like rub that in for the whole segment and can everyone on the internet guts and this is like early days for this sort of fucking be. They got so fucking busy. I ain't never seen that motherfucker tournaments who the fuck is this guy anyway. Best in the world attacking fuck is that trophy. It was like we were just fucking around but people got so pissed like and that's always the thing that would make me crazy is when we recover a fighting game and play it. We're fucking around playing. This game is like it was impossible to have fun covering fighting games because all the comments were just like. How does this guy get a copy of the game said it to me. I could kick his ass is like that's not what the fucking task is here. dude like. that's not how this works. I who gives a shit. It's just yeah like there's an still around. You still see it here and there. But i think people are a little more accepting or maybe i just don't look is often but like there was just a long stretch of time okay. It's still exist covering fighting games was just not fun. Because the the people in those communities would come out of the woodwork to be fucking assets. it's nerve wracking. It is yeah. I've never felt more self conscious and this is like covering fight hot. Go yourself like this is so not a place for our last question rambled on long enough mike and hanoi in says why do retail websites so often leak products through early listings. It seems to have happened with the new switch. Most recently and it happened so often. I have a hard time believing. It's not intentional. At least some of the time either to drive traffic and attention to the retailer or because some disgruntled employee wants to off to their friends. I think this is ever intentional. Yeah no. I don't.

"I don't know a home. Ownership is I i mean it's a great deal. In the grand scheme of things i guess but also the compared to paying rent to someone and all that other stuff but boy here with hoodlum friends for a while and they do a number on a couple of rooms and then also houses just kind of slowly everything every all. We are all falling apart day by day. And so are your home's you realize stuff like what. Yeah yeah concrete. Which is like would yeah. It's not great why you know we. We learned in three little pigs that you should build the homes out of bricks at least and that was something when i went to reno and we spent some time walking to a coffee shop. This is years ago now. I saw a lot of homes that were made of brick. And i was like this is like a nice neighborhood. Looks like it could be a nice place to live except for some parts of renault that looked like they would very much not be nice place to live but like some parts of it. I was like this looks like a nice little neighborhood. Ripe ascites we talked about. This prison was not the prison. No i don't know the no but prison. I didn't see the prison but probably not a super nice place. Speaking of all the shifting there's been a lot of quakes have you guys the past week or two what's going. I haven't found those them loads of them this week. I'm going on my open. A different sensitive or something or too many little ones but the freaked me out man who was just like i was like i live my entire life not knowing this like the house things like houses. They just stay there buildings. Everything's fine we're all. It's like solid there. Things only get wobbly from the ground upwards but now it's like the entire city can shake and the first time i felt one. It's easy small one. But it's totally like flip. My hand like wait. What was slipped my god okay. I felt my my stomach. Just completely dropped out. It scared the hell out of me. I never faustus ever again. Yeah did you have a bigger. Because i won't ever little is a pretty big one. I have on the scale what it was but they have never been. I have never been scared of an earthquake. Yeah like it's from from living here. Or i like the big one in eighty nine the like a freeway collapsed dolls other stuff like up here not as intense as it was in san francisco but it was still like and i don't i think i've told part of the story before but like at some point. My brain broke in a highly specific. Like they train. You like you go to school. And they're like paying an earthquake should get in a doorjamb. Because it's going to be more stable or this or that which is up for debate these days Would doors squander the desk. Is that if you're at school But i don't know. I would not enter this desk with what i've done to it. What if they say shooter and at our quick at the same time except to close the door for that one. He'll have trouble aiming. And i think you'll be okay. Okay bulletproof backpack and put it over your head. Oh my god exactly yeah is unreal thing as a real thing But when that earthquake hit in eighty nine my instinct was to strike a surfing pose standing on. I was standing. ask sec. yeah. I guess he's spread out a little bit for balanced. But also i was like. Yeah but a ride this man hanging stoked about this earthquake and then my friend grabbed me and pulled me in the door. Jamb nothing whatever. I and i did it again this i did it again. We were in tokyo for. Tgi for the ps launch. or something. we're in tokyo for something Man yeah and so we were high up in a hotel and there was a pretty big earthquake. Like one that like liver like. Hey by the way. There's gonna be a typhoon now because of this earthquake and hit like late at night when we were in bed it was like me in. I think ryan mcdonald were sharing a room and or whatever reason it hit and i jumped on the bed and struck surfing pose.

And i kind of like an swaying. Heiss never comes across some videos anyway. So whenever i'm watching videos that are like what the fuck must not have been like to be there because the buildings it just like crazy and it goes for a long time because you know it's got to settle out after it was fucking crazy and then and then after that there was like whatever it was to nami typhoon. Whatever happens water an earthquake There was a warning after that it was like the day before we relieving are going to be able to get out of the country or or what. But i don't know that's i i've never. I've never had a big like your earthquakes. I guess is the is the thing just my wife who is also from the west coast. She is not a fan.
