NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road

"Even though i <Speech_Male> think turner average <Speech_Male> like nineteen and eight <Speech_Male> or two thousand eight <Speech_Male> for the series was <Speech_Male> probably the best pacers <Speech_Male> player outside of game <Speech_Male> one <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> try and do all these <Speech_Male> things. Warren disrobe <Speech_Male> ex. Oh <Speech_Male> nine <Speech_Male> in the in. The <Speech_Male> playoffs <Speech_Male> did not do well in <Speech_Male> the playoffs <Speech_Male> own. But you look <Speech_Male> at like. <Speech_Male> He tried to do all these <Speech_Male> things. That dough mazdas <Speech_Male> and you wonder a <Speech_Male> little bit. Is that just <Speech_Male> him. Or is that the <Speech_Male> offense <Speech_Male> and i think it's a little bit <Speech_Male> of both like i <Speech_Male> think that gets discounted <Speech_Male> a lot. Lee wide <Speech_Male> people are like. Oh <Speech_Male> well it's just because he's he's <Speech_Male> miscast me is <Speech_Male> but he's also <Speech_Male> a very hesitant <Speech_Male> shooter. Like <Speech_Male> record scratches <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> walk walking much. He makes <Speech_Male> really bad decisions <Speech_Male> with the ball in his hands. <Speech_Male> Because he's trying <Speech_Male> to think through things <Speech_Male> like he reminds me of <Speech_Male> like <Speech_Male> If you like <Speech_Male> hit the search <Speech_Male> bar on something and it takes <Speech_Male> forever low exhibits <Speech_Male> not sure what is trying <Speech_Male> to do like. <Speech_Male> He's just really <Speech_Male> caught between stuff. So i <Speech_Male> like miles. <Speech_Male> He's the <Speech_Male> kind of guy. I think the pacers <Speech_Male> will eventually <Speech_Male> trade him. And <Speech_Male> then he'll look awesome somewhere <Speech_Male> else. <SpeakerChange> And <Speech_Male> everybody's <Speech_Male> gonna climb the patient <Speech_Male> in sacramento. <Speech_Male> Hey i <Speech_Male> never <Speech_Male> really if you could. <Silence> If you <Speech_Male> i <Speech_Male> wanna write article about <Speech_Male> it but i think if <Speech_Male> those what kristaps <Speech_Male> porzingis did this <Speech_Male> year cutting <Speech_Male> out a lot of his <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> his kind of post <Speech_Male> touches <Speech_Male> and and <Speech_Male> really just gunning <Silence> from three <Speech_Male> W <Speech_Male> trim be a <Speech_Male> nice fit next to the <Speech_Male> fox. But <Speech_Male> i <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> bagley fit to. <Speech_Male> You'd <Speech_Male> be nicer next to marvin <Speech_Male> is i can't <Speech_Male> remember <Speech_Male> i remember. Of course <Speech_Male> he was good at duke as <Speech_Male> rebounder. <SpeakerChange> But if <Silence> you good defensive rebounder <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> defensively is not <Speech_Male> great. Because he's <Speech_Male> not a good defensive renowned <Speech_Male> the most disciplined <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> he's got <Speech_Male> he's got <Speech_Male> little my my whole <Speech_Male> thing like with the dead <Speech_Male> man and talking me into that <Speech_Male> wonder like a brick lopez <Speech_Male> sort of thing <Speech_Male> is that <Speech_Male> bagley can protect <Speech_Male> the rim in sacramento. <Speech_Male> Needs somebody to <Speech_Male> do that so <Speech_Male> i think it needs to <Speech_Male> be this <Speech_Male> weird situation like i <Speech_Male> looked at john collins <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> deadman when when <Speech_Male> they were in atlanta together <Speech_Male> before sacramento brought <Speech_Male> him in and john <Speech_Male> collins plays the five on offense <Speech_Male> because deadman just <Speech_Male> sits in spaces <Speech_Male> right but he gets rolled <Speech_Male> of the ram where john collins <Speech_Male> is best where i think bagley <Speech_Male> would be best <Speech_Male> yet on the defensive <Speech_Male> end collins <Speech_Male> able to guard the perimeter <Speech_Male> a little bit more and <Speech_Male> not have the <Speech_Male> whole <Speech_Male> load of <Speech_Male> rim protection responsibilities. <Speech_Male> Because <Speech_Male> deadman's able to do that. <Speech_Male> So i think <Speech_Male> like the fit next. Bagley <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> a five on defense <Speech_Male> in a four on offense. <Speech_Male> And i think turner has <Speech_Male> a little <SpeakerChange> bit of that <Speech_Male> prototype right. <Speech_Male> Yeah but the problem <Speech_Male> is just his ball handling <Speech_Male> like he <Speech_Male> has. He <Speech_Male> showed some flashes <Speech_Male> like he <Speech_Male> started pumping <Speech_Male> the pumping <Speech_Male> go like <Speech_Male> but he's <Speech_Male> again not sue president <Speech_Male> to do it. <Speech_Male> I mean he is <Speech_Male> a little hesitant to do <Speech_Male> it and just shoot in general <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And the biggest <Speech_Male> thing is you <Speech_Male> never wanna see milestone. <Speech_Male> Da show again <Speech_Male> in my fucking <SpeakerChange> life <Speech_Male> like he's <Speech_Male> not good at it. <Speech_Male> It's just that <Speech_Male> is what it is. He's <Speech_Male> not a good screener <Speech_Male> because <Speech_Male> he can't get low at all <Speech_Male> he has like the <Speech_Male> least bend <Speech_Male> in his lower <Speech_Male> body. That i think i've ever <Speech_Male> seen in a player. <Speech_Male> He's just <Speech_Male> not like remarkably <Speech_Male> athletic <Speech_Male> in terms of like moving <Speech_Male> across borders.

"So how do you kind of way. That and deal with that. Because i remember i always had i not a celtics fan so i didn't really like love larry bird or anything but Y- he had. He had his hands on the pacers for quite a bit and things really boil badly with with with how things kind of wound down with. Paul george era and a lotta that i don't wanna say it's all and labor but there was some stuff there and he had draft issues as well but yeah. I think it's an interesting thing to look at. It is and you know vlada kind of at least from an outsider's point of view. Got the job. Because he was that guy and he really was so underqualified. I think that he managed a european team for a little while. But yeah came back. And like i guess. There's this good after what was a poor front office management before that of bringing in this former legend and then he brings in asia as assistant gm. It's like okay. Cool like every the fan base knows these names and likes these guys but they don't actually know what they're doing and you know you hear all this stuff of like davakis just like super disrespected by the rest of the front office is and you feel like you could take advantage of him. We saw that happen a couple of times so like bringing in a guy that is like i guess having experiences very valuable but bringing in someone that has years of experience under daryl morey who apparently is making bank the way. I don't know if you saw that And just a lot of experience there in an actual staff like monty. Mcnair like i said from houston wes. Wilcox was one of the candidates that they had as their gm. They brought him in as an assistant general manager. He spent time running. Atlanta for lyle. Yeah so the in they. Have you know. Phil jabbar's from philly. Paul johnson's from okay see that's a vp player personnel director of basketball operations. Like they're building an actual staff of qualified people in. That didn't happen before. And it's like so obvious and it should have been there but it wasn't so i like am just optimistic about flooding being out and a guy that should be respected in the league and came up sort of the quote unquote right way. Yeah i'm cautiously optimistic. Because you only can feel so good as a kings fan after just owners being terrible. But i think that it's a really good step in the right direction and as long as that can kind of step back a little bit which. I don't think it's been too much of a problem from what i can tell. I think that you know. There's a lot of reason for kings fan to feel good about that change. I remember have anything to add on that. Because i can't speak as a kings fan. But from what i heard they were fucking ecstatic and he was out of there but yeah i mean that's almost smart. You got anything else on the king. Yeah no i'm. I'm good if you are i. I wasn't sure if you actually just asked you anything else to say..

Pelicans' Zion Williamson looks every bit the superstar in NBA debut
"The As the NBA Gears Up for the Playoffs Zion Williamson and the PELICANS are preparing to head home. Pelicans were officially eliminated from playoff contention joining the Sacramento Kings also on the blast now. I'm very disappointed in his performance all across the board today, the Athletics Will Hillary joins US to look back on Zion's rollercoaster of rookie season to ask if it's time to adjust our expectations around the NBA's most hyped player in recent memory. That's a big question is just how is he gonNA handle it, and how is he going to respond? Think the great players we've seen in this league when the doubts happened the greats rise, and if he can do that, then we're gonNA, see him being one of the biggest stars in the League and I think one of the biggest stars and Sports.

Zion Williamson Leaving NBA Bubble For Urgent Family Matter
"We begin today with news that Zion. Williamson has left the NBA bubble. Bubble in Orlando to attend an urgent family medical matter. The New Orleans Pelicans Zion intends to rejoin the team at an unspecified later date. We'll bond your thoughts on Zion leaving and what this could mean in the bigger picture, well Tony Me. The first thing is I hope this urgent family. Medical matter turns in becomes not urgent, and whoever this is, and whatever it is is improved better. So, that's the first thought and my second thought is. This is what people as they get older as they move from Zion's twenty today in their twenties, and thirties and forties is what we do it all the time. This is what deal with and players and coaches, and this is what your life becomes as you get older sadly, but necessarily the difference of course is this pandemic? The difference you you you normally you leave, and these guys have enough wherewithal to fry fly privately. If they want and most times they do and they they come back. Back and they juggle their tension between what is going on with their family member and ball, and they still have to do that, but now it's only you have protocol that you have to answer to, and you could be gone anywhere from say four days to fourteen days depending on things like if you're tested every day while you're gone, so we. We don't know and let's face it. There's twenty two teams in the bubble and not sixteen largely because Zion is one of those six extra teams in the NBA wanted to see him in the postseason. No question about that there's there's no reason on earth for the Washington. Wizards and the Sacramento Kings and whole bunch of these teams to be in this round, Robin and playoff to get into the playoffs in his created right because Zion, Williamson, second only in my opinion to Bron James as a television draw, and they WANNA. See Him in the playoffs. I Echo your statements that we hope that this isn't something traumatic for the family that should go without saying but testing the. The protocol by understanding correctly is you need to test on your own every day? In order that? When you come back, you can spend only four days out instead of fourteen. That's asking a lot of anyone when they've left the bubble to be able to do that to me. The larger question is, do you make exceptions know and to me for people like Zion and Lebron James who try to make an exception, but where where there is contagion, you can't do of course. By the Way Zion has team. Okay, and his team can help in that regard. They may have to send somebody WHO's in charge of testing. They want him air. No, there's no exception is the is the is the virus make an exception? Is the virus go? Lebron is gone, then look a little bit too big and strong for. Let me let me go over here. No, they're not doing that, so there's no exceptions, but you hope one that that this urgent matter becomes less urgent, and to that Zairean could get back quickly. Administer this I mean. The the Pelicans come on David. Griffin is not some dope going to do what they can as a franchise who support him and make sure he has what he needs to transition back to the bubble.

"When we were still courtside at ground floor level almost everywhere sometimes sidelines baseline and we will pick up a lot and you you get a better sense of like how teammates interact with each other or how teams you know. React to each other physically verbally. Whatever you know. Pick up everything because it's loud but you do get a little bit of a sense of it and there's part of me feels like I would love to have it be quite enough that we can hear you guys talking that we can hear it. Some of the interactions. I think fans might learn a lot. I'm not saying not just like guys talk and mess or whatever but but just the the interplay between teammates and everything like we might pick up something learn something it would be an interesting insight that the league probably doesn't actually want to have happened. And you guys certainly your your coaches who are control. Freaks will not want that to happen. And my guess is that it won't my guess is that the NBA's GonNa they're gonNA pipe in something. They're going to do something so that not just that we at home. Don't hear what you're saying but so that to your point you can't pick up on the other teams schemes and an end to the You know instructions at barking out in a timeout right. Like I feel like the coaches are all going. Almost demand that won't they? I mean essentially as a media person you will be able to sit courtside or few rose. That's where they place you you'll be able to hear both timeouts in everything it'd be like we're playing the game for for audiences ten twenty is you'll be able to. You'll be able to have like a deep in depth. Look into like everything that happens in the NBA game but most educate here. You can't see our everything will be magnified. 'cause there won't be anything else going on. It would just be game so as a player. Look you know you love the game you go out there and play but I think it will be very interesting for you guys just to get that close. What's going on? Yeah no I think so and again there's among the many unknowns when we don't know where we'll be sitting in what they will deem to be appropriate health wise or or or otherwise right so but I still think they're gonNA probably pipe in noise so that we can't hear anything that's totally best. Here's here's a thought we get the world's largest zoom meeting or maybe there's two there's one four the kings and one for your opponent. It's a playoff game. It's you guys in the Pelicans playing for the right to battle for the eighth seed or something in some play in game and all of the Kings fans are all logged in from other places all in their homes in Sacramento. They're screaming at their computers. The NBA is gathering all that noise. So that when you have some big Tomahawk Dunk. And they all scream. At their computers in their homes in Sacramento it's now piped into the sound system in Orlando and then by the new in the Pelican's fans are screaming at their computers on their Mass Zoom Meeting. With you know five thousand people logged on that gets piped in how about that so my two things to that idea. The first is what happened to possess the basketball fan. Who doesn't want to necessarily join either podcast either. Either side. They don't they. Don't want to join the kingside. There'd be a third string of just like the casual fan of like me I. I just missed the last dance I just need I need some basketball I so maybe maybe that just like sell like tickets or something like the Kings. And Pelicans you go to your season ticket holders and you you sell them or like some little nominal sum like a couple of bucks you buy a ticket to the kings stream or the clear that you could commandeer you could jump into the into the opponent's streaming like try to mess with people. I guess but I don't know I feel like you could actually have live reaction. I mean there's some lag time in buffering Internet connection. I guess I don't know I just. I'm just brainstorming here. My my my second. My second question to that is who would have to regulate the audio right because if you have a baby and one computer you have music like two. People played two different types of music. Do you just allow that to just come in. There's people there's thousands of fans signed in right so it. It's the key of all these people yelling or playing their music or whatever all at once so it's just going to be noise but will roar. It'll get louder when you guys do something. Great and the other side will have. There's I don't know probably technologically this. There's no chance and somebody out. There is like laughing at me saying like dude. You're you're crazy but nice try. But I don't know I feel like there should be a way for the fans. The fans to participate would be would be a fun thing. I think there's definitely some that that can be pissed. I'd be interested to see how that would go my my. It friends on that one cover couple before I let you go. You were traded mid game from the Mavericks to the Kings. So you've been traded mid game and you've been at a suspended game that you were actually out of the court for warm ups for What's going to be the next bizarre thing you're involved in man? That's a great question because these are these things don't very often getting traded mid game. Yeah they don't they don't against the happened again but you never know. You never know you anything can happen. Burke basketball reference I love going on a basketball reference just to see Things like random nicknames that guys allegedly have some of which seemed more real than others they have you listed as Black Falcon. Is that accurate.
"sacramento kings" Discussed on The Full 48
"And there's been this this discussion relating to that which is well there's been talked before about should the NBA schedule permanently moved where it's December into the summer permanent shifts that the NBA doesn't go head to head with football in the fall as much take advantage of the summer months when there's only baseball and maybe it's going to happen out of necessity this year and then the question becomes will is going to be the new normal the thing. I keep thinking or coming back to is. There are a lot of younger players with young families and kids who go to school and those kids are out of school in the summer and you kind of like as a Father Myself. I I like being on the NBA calendar because it means that my slower months not completely off in the summer of course with all craziness a free agent seen summer league but I can take my family vacation and I think a lot of players with kids would want to preserve that that that sink as well in the calendar. And you guys have a say in this Harrison like you got the players association. This is a collectively bargained. Item the schedule. Where do you think that that would go if that discussion happens? What think You know you're you're standing between you know two options right if you know. We go to December or January. Start to avoid football into maximize some months. We can't say well we're going to try this for one season. GonNa go from December to June. Ready to cram eighty two games and then they were going to get back on the schedule for that but the second option to your point is the number of guys that will have to either report to their city or you know. Hide their family in a in an anchor location when it starts school come August you know. I think that that's a really big thing especially you know guys who are overseas now what that what their schedule looks like and does the shift in calendar change international play for NBA players will be able to play for the national team. Now because if we're GONNA go from December to start in the playoffs in July whether qualification or you know woke up Olympics whatever new maybe Eurocopter Afra- Bassett guys will not be able to participate in Edwardsville. Yeah and I for a lot of guys. That's that's a serious consideration to as as I want to say as big as spending the summer with your kids but these are all these important items right I mean not just for you know. People will immediately think of team. Usa and the guys who are playing for the US Olympic team. But you know affects jaanus affects. Luca affects everybody. Who's WHO's an anchor for their national team and immediately so too because in theory the Tokyo Games will happen next summer. So we're already looking at this this conflict. That's that's A. that's a tough one. So what would be your best guest players rather if you can if you can find a way to to to restore the normal schedule immediately. Do you think players would prefer the one we already have to as opposed to the permanent shift to December through summer. My guess from the from the few players I've talked to. Obviously I'm not. I'm not a survey that as all these surveys going on Via twitter right now But I would assume that most guys wanna stay with enormous good. Yeah I would I that. That's my that's my gut to. I could be wrong but I feel like you know. Now if they end up playing next season on a you know an altered schedule which looks like. It's almost inevitable and you know there's there's a ratings boom and the the league come to the players and say look our next. Tv package going to look like this because the ratings are this much higher like all right. There'll be a discussion but if it's just the usual logistics that we've discussed I can't imagine guys would be that excited about it. You alluded to this earlier. You guys had actually kind of caught your stride a little bit early half. The season was was very bumpy for the Kings. You were thirteen and seven in your last twenty before the shutdown and that came after a six game losing streak. What was going right for you guys. What were you finally starting to and that was still with with with I think mostly with Bagley out. What what did you guys finally start to discover? You think we'll just took us a long time to finally get a grew with our team the rotations you know because the first game Marvin goes out gained five articles. Doubt you know we had our second game with our full roster came thirty games in the season we heard again. You know what I'm saying. So you know trae tacking but I feel like we finally starting to find a groove chemistry got better Guys really feel uncomfortable. Just our system. Anytime we have players coaches all all of it just takes time and unfortunately the kind of stock whereas we were kind of coming out of just really inconsistent the for seventy did. There was a lot of talk about this early in the season about whether the India trip just kind of threw everything off. Is that a valid factor. And all this. I don't WanNA say India trip through everything off because as just from our team bonding standpoint. It was great to do something like that you know. How often do you get on a plane eastern? You know sixteen hours just just with new teammate. During a training camp situation and you guys are able to do different things but we weren't able to get as much court time as you know we need it for a new young team and nothing that Kinda showed up with disarm execution in games like I said for the first half of the season yeah and so just starting to catch your stride. You guys are on the court at your That was was that golden one right the last night of the season. So you're on yet your shiny new arena. Not that new anymore. Still still still new to me Not THAT ANYBODY MRS ARCO. And you're you're out there and getting ready to play the. Pelicans you're the last ones on the court in the whole league before the suspension comes down Woody Rick member of that night. How did it unfold? How did you guys find out where they're like a buzz going through the arena? That of what had happened in Oklahoma and whether it was about to reach you.
California - Sacramento Mayor Hopes For Local Ownership Of 'Sacramento Bee' Newspaper
"Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg is hoping to re write the headline of his city's paper instead of the Sacramento bee the hundred sixty three year old paper files for bankruptcy and is sold to a hedge fund he wants the headline landing on people's doorsteps to read the Sacramento bee stays with local owners to explain we're joined now by mayor Steinberg hi there good to be with you Mary Louise so this is not a new news story McClatchy which owns a bunch of papers including the B. I think people have followed along as it filed for bankruptcy give me in a few sentences what your plan is for writing a different ending to this story for the B. well first of all the Sacramento bee is the leading daily publication in the capital city of California and it is a specific asset we intend as a community to put up a fight to make sure that the B. emerges from bankruptcy in a way that not only maintains its status but actually enhances it because the B. is suffered like many daily newspapers over the last decade or more I just believe that independent journalism is crucial for obvious reasons our community matters and we don't want this newspaper carved up in a way that will leave the people that I represent at to not have the benefit of that independent daily journalism I read your planning to convene a forum later this month is that right with the investors and philanthropists and community leaders to figure out what this might look like exactly because we know that there are a number of models throughout the country and we intend to highlight all of them in addition to actively working between now and the twenty seven to identify as some people who might be willing to to buy the B. do you have your eye on specific potential investors I do can't identify them a right now but we are working very hard on identifying some investors but you know our city is this great emerging city in America I say that I know with a little biased because I am the mayor of but it's true we were emerging from just being capital city into a government town to be the center of innovation and technology and food and it's becoming a great millennial sitting over the last half decade or so we have fought to keep civic assets we fought to keep the Sacramento Kings are NBA franchise in the capital city and we ended up not only keeping them the building a great downtown arena we just fought to win a major league soccer franchise and so a newspaper may not seem on par with all those other civic assets but undoubtedly the daily newspaper is at least if not more important than the civic assets and if those are worth fighting to keep into into win so is the Sacramento bee what section of the B. two you read first every morning it's a good question I read the editorials first I read the the state local news I make sure they spelled my name correctly and and then you know I like to read the sports section to you know we have a NBA team that's making a run for the playoffs that is Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg talking about Sacramento bee marriage time virgin Kerr thank you so much

"Golden One. The team's biggest sponsors ever that get wired into his account for his own personal gain in the kings know nothing about how does no one else in the organization. have any idea that zapping you. This was a question that kept getting at me when I was trying to get to the bottom of the mystery and I asked Jeff David I said. Will you ever worried that you know on game nights when all the sponsors and the Mucky mucks are down on the floor floor for warm ups and everybody's socializing in the Lexus Club. That your boss wouldn't be talking to the head of Golden One Donna. Bland and say. Hey thanks for floating joining us that my million dollars and David said it he never actually worked. I mean one of the things he said is it's sort of like Thanksgiving dinner with your family like when the sponsors interact and I was primarily the point person when they're interacting with kings officials no one's talking about the transactional nature of your sponsorship deal your deal structure. It's almost uncouth and the truth of the matter is is everybody trusted. Jeff David why not he was the. NBA's consummate soccer debt. He was really good at this job. Everybody was happy. Everybody was instilled with the Sacramento rising. Sort of spirit. That's downtown hollow cores being built up in here the parties responsible for it. Everybody was having really good time. And nobody was talking about the transactions at any point does he come close to getting caught. A really interesting thing happens someone comes time for golden one to make their first. I annual payment. This is not the the nine up. This is just their first annual July first payment they actually send the annual payment that's due to the Kings to Sacramento Sports Partners Jeff Davids entity. David has to explain like oh no no no. This was just the account that was really for that nine million dollar construction money. Now let me you need. I'm I'M GONNA give this back to you and you're going to wire it to the actual kings account so nobody going one thinks anything of this and you think about it. I mean errors happen all the time again. Nobody was on alert that the lead sponsorship executive in one of the most respected young executives in Sacramento would just be siphoning off this kind of money and when all told how much money are we talking about here but thirteen million dollars when you add it to obviously the thirty thousand little appetizer from the from the previous years so Jeff David is siphoning off millions of dollars. What does he do with it? Definitely decides that beachfront real estate is going to be his jam. He takes a thirteen million dollars when he purchased is to homes and eight million dollar Gorgeous Beach House on right on the Strand in Hermosa Beach. I mean looking out onto the beach volleyball the Pacific Ocean and another house for three point. Eight million dollars and what he's GonNa do is he's going to fix them up any plans to flip them. But in the meantime he's going to enjoy. AH The smaller home. which is the two blocks off the beach and Manhattan beach and he and his family essentially make it kind of their weekend home for for a couple of years aside from that? He's not living large. The interesting thing is you know. He didn't have an expensive drug habit or gambling habit. He didn't live extravagantly. He didn't chase bad investments. You know he wanted to essentially to be a little more entrepreneurial as as the way he says it so he was going to create this unauthorized loan as he calls it where he essentially takes the thirteen million plus from these sponsors and just uses it to capitalize these investments. He wants to make the kings are in their new arena with the help of Jeff. David has a new name. How's the team doing the Sacramento?

No Good Jackson. No good balls loose. cruse kings had three wrecks at it and couldn't do it their business side operations doing really well. I mean this downtown arena and the in these real estate projects are are doing well. But the team is the kings as they're called often in Sacramento Kings a term of slight endearing. Derision two thousand Eighteen Jeff. David decides to leave the team or does he go. Jeff comes up and gets a situation where they're sort of ceiling there. There are people in place above him on the executive structure and the writings on the wall. In furthermore you know what all the big deals that he wanted to sculpt done so he goes to the Miami Heat the gold standard of NBA Organizations Kevin how did the Sacramento kings come to discover their sponsors had paid millions of dollars to Jeff if David himself instead of the team so stacey wenxin their HR executive the head of HR. Then it's August two thousand thousand eighteen and she's doing very hr things Jeff. David had forgotten to lever this document. The commission schedule for Sales Reps. And she's gotta find it he's going to give it to somebody else and she can't find it anywhere so finally she decides look. I'll just go into this guy's computer and just just look for the file and she finds some kind of weird stuff she start digging peeling the onion back and the layers and layers and layers emerge. She sees the Kaiser and golden one of our partners in the purchase of these houses. which just seems so odd? Why would king king sponsors be getting into business with Jeff David on beachfront property in southern California? This becomes an absolute salute obsession for her. She gets the IT Department to open up his old emails. She looks at these mortgage documents. She finds these partnership agreements with forgeries. She's sitting at her kitchen table in the middle of the night to the point where her husband is coming out and saying just like what are you doing. She just cannot let this go and she essentially essentially builds the case herself. This is just a case where somebody with really good. Instincts just follows the trail alternately. She brings it to the team president and they all determined they have enough to call the FBI that there might have been a major fraud perpetrated under the kings roof Coming up the FBI turns up the pressure.

"We're team was stacked. And you're right like when you said a few minutes ago that you guys don't really get the credit in retrospect, you probably deserve because you didn't have tattled behind it. But you guys went like I jotted down last night. I mean, it went a forty four wins and a first round loss to fifty five wins the next year and then swept by the Lakers in the second round sixty one and sixty one in a one zero two when you lose in the conference finals to them. And you guys were freaking good. You know, it's so the the second year when we. We were swept by them, which is your first year in we when we go sixty one. So you in competition. It's it's weird. Whether you win or lose sometimes doesn't mean what it would it mean to means. That's the finality. That's what the fancy, but when you competing, you know, you know, when you look across you know, and I think they knew we were better team. We didn't beat them. But in my opinion, we were better team. I think if they were honest with themselves, they would they would say as much because if you look at the this Amaki Walker game, I think that was game three is at the half court. He had to have for he didn't account and that was the derogatory shot at the end of the game. We think we are by twenty and a first quarter. I mean, just sheared domination. Just I mean, there's not it's old school basketball compared to this new school basketball, but we weren't able to to close the doors a lot of different reasons. In ways that the I sit around and still to this day because I studied basketball, so I try to figure out different things. But that's the one thing that that. I always that always say to myself is the you know because in different situations. I knew like manna team is really good. They're coming. But I always thought our team that particular team was better than than we just didn't win on paper. Doug. And I've said this before too, and I've written this you used to do those old in the newspapers you would always have for playoff matchups. Do you go up Severson center? You check the box who has the advantage would do by position. And then you would coach you do bench tangible. Check by shack. Check by Kobe. Check by Phil Jackson. He's fill every check would go to you guys and in Portland series. Every check went to Portland that wasn't shot Koby fill the Lakers. I mean, look that's supporting cast was phenomenal in the way they fit around. Those guys Rick Fox Robert ory, Fisher, Brian Shaw, those guys, but talent wise what you guys had him. Again, what Portland had reported part of to this depth and advantages at so many other positions. You're right. Like, I if somebody said the kings were the better team, though, they lost. I wouldn't argue it like it's a legit debate. Right. You guys were that good. All right. So tell me if I'm if I'm wrong to have this particular interpretation of things like obviously covering the Lakers back, then I'm covering more of their side of it. It doesn't it's not a bias. But it is when you're immersed in. It writes, a little you see more of the team that you're you're near everyday, right? Then the team. So I think my views could be colored a little bit by that again not. On. I don't care what the Lakers won or lost. If they lost. I get to go home earlier and take my vacation. In fact, you're one of that run..

"Look, you mentioned the the sons, you know, they were the get it up and down shoot the three ball and a lot of things, but they never got past us. And when you we talk about Golden State Steve Kerr said his much to me, but they implemented in my opinion, three ball in a way, different fashion than we ever did. But if you watch them, they're always trying to get layups that was something similar that. We did especially when we played the Mavericks in the playoffs. We'd go in there practicing. They had banners on the wall. It said how many layups that we got because it made them that mad be. Because is coach career who is the great coach from from Princeton in one of our assistant coaches would always say, you know, watched the guy in front of you. He'll tell you what to do. And if he tells you go back door, go back door, son. And that's how you get a lot of layups when you got passing big guys meaning that every single person on our team could pass dribble shooting pivot, everyone now some in certain areas to a different extent. No one shot the ball like Pasia the post game and a pivot game of Latvian Chris was different than some of our guards. But everybody could do everything which changed the whole complexion of the game. He didn't see a lot of big is grab the rebound and take two or three dribbles to start to break. It was always you grabbed a ball to guard comes back. He gets the basketball. That's slows us now. Will if Chris grabbed a basketball and takes two dribbles needs saying don't wait Doug run by the time. He hits me I'm on top of the other guy. And now that leads to a trill jumps. For Chris or Vlada or whatever. So it was we I think we had understanding a Sports Illustrated cover probably help that and help people understand the greatest show on court. But it was mighty mighty about a fun. Yeah. No. And it was a blast to watch as well. And yes, the Sports Illustrated cover people should go back and read that one too because I I remember that that was the that that they captured you guys. Yes, they did. Was random thought I didn't get going through notes. Just like reminiscing. A while. I putting notes together about your air and everything else. Do we think?

You're disavow those kings teams not to dredge up bad memories. But I mean that we think of the Lakers being the dominant team of the because they won three in a row. So there are a dynasty. They won three in a row. That's legit. That's that's just how these things go. But I always bring up to people how close it was to being one instead of three because in year one of their therefore lampien ship. Yeah. They're down fifteen points in fourth quarter of game seven in the Western Conference finals to Portland amazing comeback. They absolutely of course, earned it. They win that one day roll year to and then your year Western Conference finals, obviously there's the much disputed disgust debated. Controversial game. Six with officiating issues, and it goes to game seven, and you guys have a chance in overtime of games. I mean, it goes to overtime at ARCO arena. So two things about that one was about had the the thin line between dynasty and just a title or maybe two instead of three because they could have easily lost that one. You guys could have easily been the one in the finals beaten up on the nets. But to it's how we perceive both the Portland team and your team because that Parlanti stacked..

"So once I saw the formula for us to win. I was all in. I said, okay. This makes total sense to me. You know, I'm gonna guard the best point guard or I'm Bogarde the best two or three dead matter. Whoever it is. That's going to be my guy. You guys were I like our younger listeners here. You know, if you have if you don't if you didn't see the kings of that era, and you don't know about them like go find it on YouTube. You guys were the most enjoyable team of that era. I felt like covered shacking Kobe for seven years. And obviously, I watched a lot of really great basketball. Right. But you guys at that time were what we think of the warriors to an extent. Now, the Phoenix Suns of the mid to thousands. You guys were all about pace you're about the ball moving. You talked about, you know, see Weber or Vlada Byan, you know. You know in the high post and moving the ball, and that was a beautiful offense that was fun. And you guys the Lakers were the most team with you guys were the most enjoyable team of the air. Did you did you feel that did you know, it like this was like that you guys were it's funny because I look back your pace was definitely as high as I remember it relative to the rest of the league. I think he has led the league in pace. But I thought I remember you guys me more of a three point shooting team. And you guys actually turns out we're kind of middle of the pack. But you know, you guys would launch the pull up three which back then was still kind of shunned shot. Right. And that happened that I think probably more often with you guys than team was it as much fun as it was from the outside. Did you guys really? Did you cognizant of how different you words than the rest of league? A yeah. Actually, we were because when you travel with vodka divas pays covets and hito Turkoglu every city that you go in as like a rock band coming because they had a contingent of Turkish fans of. Serbian fans when we come to New York the upper bowl will be full in VI. I mean, just like, wow. You know, we pull out or pull in and they are lying on each side. So from that standpoint when you hit the floor, it was it was interesting mix all of a sudden the ball was star hopping around, and it was start moving in to kind of bring it to today as well as when I talked to people about the kings pace, I say there are many ways to play with pace one is to do it the way the kings are doing that is just a forced down because you have Lamborghini in the air and files, but you can also play with pace by the ball moving around. Meaning that Vlada wasn't the fastest guy running. Chris wasn't a fast guy run. But we played with pace because it's kind of like soccer like you make you make a pass. But then there's a quick second pass. And then the third passes the guy that was on the other side of court, but he's moving already. So there's a flow invive to it. But when we got out there on the floor. It was just it was it was special. It was something. And we what we would. Say is that the king show is coming down? And when it came to town a lot of people were excited to see an excited to watch. We don't get as much credit because we didn't win a championship. That's why I say, you know, Spurs with beautiful basketball. And I'm thinking come up, really, you know, I mean, add some great players. But the our style of basketball was the forefather of a lot of what we see dude..

They have not been to new arena yet. I know it's already been a couple of years given by northern California roots at sits it's sad that I still have not been back there. I gotta get there are the cowbells back. No. They are not, you know. That's funny. How? They they have app now for a cow Bill. They've Akao Bill. I don't personally have it. But I've seen it. And no. But you know, what I think that's going to happen. You'll hear couple here there. But nothing like I mean, we haven't even in. This is what I tell them that these young guys want to talk to them. It's like, you don't really know yet. You're getting close. I I don't remember the game. But the other night, I I wasn't on because Jerry Reynolds who took over the job the legend. Yes. The legend himself. He does ten home games. So I went back to my old job. And I was doing pre imposed on television. And I sit up on perch at the main entrance, and I can kind of look down bird's eye view over the floor. And I don't remember the game. But there was a bucket a steel embody. He'll get ready to shoot at three. And I went oh boy. Oh, boy, I could feel it. They were just on the press. Of just absolute they were gonna explode. He missed the shot. And I said to myself because Jamestown was sitting next to me who is the kings inside or and I said did you feel there? And he was like, wow. Yeah. It's it's not there yet. They're getting near the learning how to use the building because that's another thing of young team. They don't know quite how to how do we use our fan base? How how how do they help us? And that's a that's a thing as well. It's a it's a small thing. But for the team, it's a huge thing. And it when that happens, in my opinion, I think the cow Bill comes back. Hold on the there's a cow bell app. I only read there's an app China. Also know it's like so what I o. Oh, you know, what I saw is someone with their phone, and there's a picture of a cowboy, and when you know when you shake the phone or or. Yeah. E pivoted like cow Bill. Yeah. Yeah. I believe that a kings fan actually invented that. It's not just like some farmer in. That's too disrespectful for me, there certain things that you just don't you? Okay. You don't go over the cowbell. That's one thing you, you gotta go, and you gotta buy your cow Bill, and you gotta bring it defense. Technology's great it is. I know that the phone is a lot less heavy than actual cowbell. Those things are heavy doesn't matter. You got to gotta to bring it back in the day. When you guys were at you peak and Arca was rocking. And those cowbells were out the average fan the viewers hearing them on TV, right? Yeah. That's how they're hearing. It. Maybe there's a shot, you know, ESPN cameras are NBC cameras probably turning them showing them. Here's what people didn't realize the biggest contingent of people with cowbells were the ones who were sitting behind the visitors bench. Yes. And the media seating at that time for the visiting media was right next to the visitor's benched. Right. So when they were all leaning forward as of noxious Lee as possible try to rattle the Lakers with their cowbells knows. That was over my head. Yeah. Yeah. So we got the full effect of it. And it was like it's annoying up there to to work. But, but it was awesome. It was there was there was nothing else. Like in the league. They're allowed crowds Portland back in the day. The rose garden rocked. Utah rocked Seattle the garden, of course, there there are places that you knew where the loudest arenas, but ARCO had a unique feel partially because it was a Bandbox this tiny as old arena. Like be this be clear as a facility it was pretty poor..

"But but it's up any fan base is going to wither a little bit during long drought. What is your sense of our fans going to be crushed if they don't make the plants even though they I agree with you there head of schedule right now, but they can kind of taste it right now. So is there a little bit of tension there about well, if they don't make it now, suddenly it's? Disappointments real, you're you're but you get another pick out of that. I think they have their. Oh, they actually not pick his out this right because no no reason not to make. No, I don't think that there is a bit of greediness in. That's good greediness. Because you know, it's like, okay, we're here. Okay. Let's go. And from the fans, I told I totally get that. Which means that. Now, the the hope the the bar has moved. So since the bar has moved now. The expectations are higher and the fact that there's expectations put on the kings. I think is a really good thing. And a lot of the fan base. First of all, they're incredible. It was a little different at the beginning of the season. Because now with the new arena, there's so many different things to watch in this new arena. I mean, golden one center is incredible. So when you go in, you know, you're there for basketball, but he you wanna walk around and see this guy, restaurants and all these different things. And it's something that I'm experiencing throughout the NBA is when the ball jumps not everyone's in their seats will go I in ARCO arena, when we ran out at a tunnel that was the show, and it would explode, and it would be that way until the end of the game will now it's a little different and write about this almost like an LA fan base back in the day. You know, how they would kind of come in. And before you know, it the place will be full and then at half time in about the third quarter. Okay to places full again. And. That's kind of what you experienced. But it's more because of the building the fan base. I think has has the right feel about them. I can I'm going around and community again, I can kind of feel that that sense of urgency net excitement about it everything is kings. When I walk in someplace they wanna talk about the kings and as opposed to earlier on like last year. It was like, hey doing you. Remember when you guys played, you know, they were good. Yeah. And that's okay because that's earn thing. And I think this team is first of all running the fan base is trust they've earned their respect by going out. And losing understand losing some of these games. Meaning that he got to go through the heartbreak it's part of the process that you go through where you get really close. And it pains you so much as a player, and I'm going to add to fans in here that you go away in the summertime, and you do all the things that you're supposed to do to take that next step in. A fan base has to go through that same pain. Because then they that's where the passion comes in. The fight comes in the hysteria comes in the Sacramento Kings fan base is right on the right curve, in my opinion..

"When you're trying to explain to people where the hell this season came from because nobody saw this coming what he saw the kings contending for the soon, even people were high on deer and FOX I think people were there were some promise in his rookie year. Even if people liked Bagley, and that was actually a controversial choice given other possibilities on the board. I'm even people like buddy, he'll whatever people liked about the kings. Nobody could see that. This thing was going to cut a congealed into into this. When you look at where they are. Now was there point in the season where you thought all right? This is for real like I like a month in. It's like, oh, this is nice. But you expect him to fade they've hung in this whole time. What is it that is has made this a defining kind of breakthrough season for them? And and when did you recognize that it was it was real and sustainable, you know, for me Howard? I recognized early on you know, when we were pronounced Keeton and talking about the season. I said. This is probably around the time two kings need to start trending towards forty people are like quad or forty wins. Yeah. Forty wins. And they're like what you know biggest has about twenty five and a half some of the people around here think we're only gonna win sixteen. We just got beat by Golden State Warriors in preseason Christie. You're crazy. But being our team when I played with Lada impatient. All those guys was and makes and people didn't see that happening. But what you threw the ball out there. You say, oh, okay. I get it. And I saw something similar in my opinion with this team, obviously lot leading and understanding and the talent base. I'm a big earn FOX guy. And I think that into days basketball, the point guard is like it's huge because if you think about the point ours and Western Conference, you about some of these point guards in Eastern Conference kyri got Steph, you've got I mean, you can just keep going down the line and the one thing about the earned. Fox's he plays both into the floor. You pair that with Bogue novel. None of it's it can shoot the ball high leverage situations from winning in Europe, but he healed in incredible shooter. And I was really high are Marvin Bagley because I think that he is one of those players that you don't know what he can be. He's six ten he's athletic as anyone in the NBA. He can dribble a little bit you can shoot it a little bit. You put it in a block. Either hand incredibly beautiful, touch and his motor is is first class. So with all that being said. Probably right after ten games for me personally died early in the reason is I was standing out. I can remember the moment. And I'm standing there with grant. And you know, how we do our hits before the game were standing there waiting to go on. And I always look at one end of the court now watch guys warm up, and then I look at the other court, and I kept saying to him I'm going we could be distinct because as a player, you're going through the layup lines, and I would look down, and I'm like, okay kinda see some matchups in. Yeah. All right. We got this now with the kings, wouldn't wow was playing. It was different. We felt that way every single time on course. But and then we would start playing in the style of basketball lend to the fact where you would see guy start grabbing their shorts in in. Like, he's guys are tired like, okay. We could actually beat this team in it. It was a consistent narrative that started happening. And I think. Probably grandma always says after about twenty twenty five games for him. He realizes if a team is real or not. And I think that it even took people probably another ten probably after about thirty games for for me. I was personally..

"And if you think about it the earned FOX was in highschool fantastic high school player in Texas. And then he goes to Kentucky. He's a very months that's pretty much what he's at Kentucky for incredible environment. Probably more fans in the stands and most NBA cities, but in CA run in an asset and he's into into the NBA. So what it took for him to get to that level was a lot of it was his hard work. But a lot of it is also God given talent meaning that in highschool. He's able to dominate because he's faster in I've been in that situation more athletic. I'm just crushing guys. Just because of that. Now, I'm also good. I got skills. Then you make it to college in something. Similar for him. And Marvin Bagley similar. He was able to bulldog and take people. In the post inches dominate them. And he did that in high school. He did that in college. He gets to the NBA. But a guy who six six who understands leverage who doesn't way as much as him. He's not able to move them the same way. So now he has to understand reverse pivots in different things like that. And it's a process of understanding in. It's also the MBA guys coming in earlier in the fundamentals not being fully developed, in my opinion, that is something that you have to go through. Also, you take into consideration away that the kings play. They play extremely fast the pace of the game is very quick. So some of the chace that you would settle for early on when it's a high leverage moment. It's not that you don't shoot them. It's maybe you create that shot as opposed to taking net shot and the difference in that is ACA walk into three pointer or I could dribble drive create help. Now, someone gets a wide open three pointer. It's a small difference. But in the NBA. That's the difference in winning and losing in being elite team in being a youthful team and understanding time and score. And that's that gap. They still have to kind of bridge. Right. That's the next step is not just winning on their talents or on their chemistry, which I think is fantastic. So you can see this as a team with really good chemistry. But that they've got to actually understand like certain fundamentals and dealing with teams that that really know how to take away their straits. And with that being said our dis guys are learning so fast. That's why I got really good kid. Incredible incredible talent DR in is is learning net. Fast in Marvin is learning fast. And I use those two because last year like in a preseason deer and goes up in. He goes to the basket normally probably like he would and he gets hit. And he lands on his back, and I never seen that happen to a McGinn in reason is he understood that now I have to go in at an angle that when I hit somebody at squares. Me up and I land how I wanna land. And I just it blew me away because I said to myself. Wow, that's on the job training. And I said the same thing for Marvin Bagley we played after his injury. We played the Golden State Warriors right after the break. He gets the ball first possession. Andrea Dallas strip second time. He gets it. A Kevin Durant strip second third time. Kevin Durant strip fourth time. Kevin Durant strip the fifth time that he gets the basketball he reversed pivot. He sees. Kevin Durant arms goes underneath them draws a foul and goes to the free throw line and Kevin starts to laugh, and he walks up to him in pats on the chest. And I said to myself like for just the Laban fan. You don't realize what you just witness us witness at this level? This is the highest level of basketball in this is the best team in basketball, a young kid who is just bursting with talent. And learn right before your eyes..

"But as you arrive in New York for the start of what could be very critical and difficult road trip for these guys. They're five hundred I think three games back in the loss column from a playoff spot that a couple of weeks ago was looking pretty good, right? How you feeling right now about what you're seeing from this kings team and their potential to end this very long drought. You know, it's going to it's going to be tough. It's going to be close more than anything. What I've been saying because you know, grant Napier who. Who is the play by play for the kings? We do a radio show as well from three to seven weekdays. And when I'm talking to the fans or when they call in and we talk about the kings. What I say is listen to the kings are probably year ahead of where they're supposed to be. And if they make the playoffs that would put them two years ahead of where they're supposed to be the fans are like, oh, why don't understand? And I'm saying there's a it's a learning curve that you have to go through in sometimes it's very painful. So when I look at the kings this year, a lot of the losses are painful losses. But they are also it's necessary for them to understand the sense of urgency that goes into being ready at the beginning of the game closing quarters starting this third quarter with the bang and not a kind of falling into it. And those are painful losses that sometimes the other night versus the Boston Celtics. It comes down. And Gordon Hayward hits a big shot and then buddy hits three. Free throws end up hitting the game winner in the game's over and you walk away going. Oh my God. How did that? And then you lose to the Phoenix Suns. So I think that it's it's still a possibility, but they're going to have to play to a level that they haven't played or if they have played it's been sporadic. They played sometimes up to the level of their competition, minus two versus the Denver Nuggets right before the all star break, minus two versus goes day. Warriors coming out of all state all-star break, then beating okay see right after that. That's a level that they can play to but to play their consistently is difficult. Yeah. And this is one of those kind of immutable laws of the NBA, Doug. And I say this all the time to to fans, and it's something I learned over time of covering this league. The youth thing it matters that the experience it matters in a few weeks ago before the Lakers just completely face planted. One of the reasons I was still bullish on the making the playoffs. I said listen the teams ahead of them the clippers traded away their best player Tobias Harris. Maybe they're not try try-. They're certainly trying on the court, but structurally, they weren't. And I said in the king's nothing against them. This is not a knock at all young. They're really young. They've never been in this position before and it wouldn't surprise me as a young team if they faded and that wasn't a criticism. It's just this is one of the immutable laws of the NBA. And it it comes into play in the playoffs. When you're having experience versus inexperience tell me you've went through this as a player, you a young player once and then an older player working with younger players isn't just about the pressure of it or not having been in situations. Like when you see this team start to falter here at a key time when yes, it's right there, the playoff berth is right there for the taking what are you seeing happening with youth in that pressure? Cooker, you know. When you talk about you give you a couple of examples, for instance, during FOX's now in his second year..
