That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water.

What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example.

What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile.

South slammed by winter storm, millions left without power in Texas
"O'Dowd. This is here and now much of the country is in the path of a major winter storm today that is icing over roads, closing airports and causing rolling power outages for millions of Americans. Oklahoma City plunged to a record low six degrees below zero this morning. The last time I got even close to that cold was more than a century ago, Alana Roach to a reporter at the Texas Tribune woke up to an unfamiliar scene here. She is with her four year old daughter, Remmy and 17 month old son, Patrick. We are in Austin, Texas, on Welcome this morning to see what outside Ram Snow. Yeah. What do you want to do in it today? No angels and I'm Valley. No man's Yeah. How beautiful is our backyard? And that scared? It may look good. It may look beautiful, but it's also dangerous. Joining us now is Mark Elliott, a meteorologist and storms specialist at the Weather Channel based in Atlanta. Mark busy day Thanks for making time for us. Absolutely. You're not kidding. And then first let's focus in on Texas because we do not hear about snow and cold like that very often. How unprecedented have the conditions been in Texas? I mean, by all measures. This is just an incredible weather pattern that led to some incredible weather. That's really not done yet. I mean, as an example, you're just hearing from that family in the Austin area. They're gonna have single digit low temperatures when they wake up tomorrow morning, which is on Lee happened eight times in the long Recorded history of the Austin area. I mean, this is an impressive cold air outbreak by all measures and to see the snow across Texas. Very impressive as well. San Antonio officially had six inches of snow from this storm. Wow. Well, this has been going on for a few days because there was recently that terrible pile up around Fort Worth where nine people died on and now looks like every county in Texas is under a state of emergency. And we're seeing millions of people there who don't have power because of the burden on the power grid. It's just so great. So how dangerous is a storm like this? Yeah, I think it's a little bit under appreciated. How? How stress the body can get over When underneath these extreme cold conditions, You have to take all kinds of precautions. I mean, everyone was saying, you know, don't go traveling unless you absolutely have to, and I think most people are listening to that. But, you know, have blankets in the trunk of your car. In case you do get stuck somewhere Know where those extra blankets are in your house. In case you're you know, you lose power for an extended period of time. It is not a comfortable thing to go through. We'll put it that way, Right. And when windshields are that low in a place like Texas, where it doesn't happen very often, it might be worth it. For people to know. Like, what does it feel like? And how dangerous how long can you be exposed to that kind of weather? You know, and single digit temperatures like we are forecasting into central, even portions of southern Texas along with wind chills. That will be even colder than that when you could get frostbite outside in a matter of minutes, So, yes, it's fun, right? Do you have the kid? There's a fun side to this novelty of snow in Texas. But you do need to protect your skin. You need to make sure that you're Getting breaks and getting warmed up because you can really get hurt if you're out there too long. Yeah, And it is not just Texas. As we said neighboring Oklahoma. They've gone days now without getting above 20 F and even Seattle has gotten about a foot of snow. So how widespread is this system across the country? Yeah, A couple of different storms are rotating through what's a a bigger trough of low pressure across, say, the eastern two thirds of the country but then that Trump also extends into the Pacific Northwest. So that's the storm pattern. Storm's coming into the Pacific Northwest, diving very far south into you know, central or even southern Texas and then turning the corner going through the mid south and eventually into the Northeast corridor. So Everybody along that path is seeing ice or snow. Anyone north of that path is in the extreme cold air. And, yes, there is another storm waiting in the wings. So many of the same areas that we've been talking about are going to get snow again for the middle and end of the week, including North Texas. The Dallas area could see significant snow again. Little Rock could see significant snow Memphis could see significant snow. I mean, these are areas that don't get snow every season. So to be talking about it twice in one week is just one more example of how incredible this weather pattern really is. I mean, is it normal? I guess what you've been describing No, it's not normal, actually. So what's causing it all to happen? Yes, So there's there's a loaded question, right? Because weather will always happen and, you know, long term averages are made up of weather extremes on so it's winter. You're going to see winter weather, but you don't see this kind of winter winter weather every year, and a lot of people are like, Oh, it's so cold. You said climate change and global warming. There is a you know, ironic component to that that as the polls warm at different levels, it messes with the polar vortex. I'm sure people have remember hearing about that from a couple years ago as that slows down that strong corridor of wind around the Arctic that keeps that cold air locked up. It gets all kinds of wiggly and wobbly And that happens all the time. That polar vortex is always there. But this is an impressive wobble if you will. So all that Arctic air spilled into the lower latitudes where the U. S is and that cold air is, you know, we're really feeling the impact right now. Marc Elliot, the weather Channel. Thank you so much for your time.

What i mean when i say recently i call this whole kind of interest in this topic productivity two point because the first wave of productivity at least in terms of its popularization was all about getting things done and that phrase of course comes from or became a popular book and method by david allen but even just the broader concept of. How do i get you know all the things that i want to do. How do i keep up with projects and tasks that are in my head. Or maybe they're written down or maybe they're in an app somewhere. But how do i organize that. That was the first wave and the second way all about knowledge retention and recall so this isn't ideal information product or online course. I mean there are a lot of information products online courses. There's certainly room for more. Learning how to learn is the number one course encore sarah it has. Millions of participants can actually go through this course for free where i think you can pay fifty dollars per certificate so lots of interest what to do can create transfer his ability. How can they take advantage of more and more people interested in the same time that he has developed his skin. It some next steps number one jump into that community right because it is a whole community. See what other people are doing like so many topics most people who have monetize. They're usually sharing some kind of content freely while also selling course of some kind that's the classic premium model. I would say also the popularity of journals kinds which we've talked about here on the show. I'm like how can there be so many specialized journals but yet apparently there are people. Keep buying them. I think there's also connects to this productivity two point. Oh thing they're probably podcasters working in this field as well. So i would just immerse myself and make sure i knew who are the personalities who are the thought leaders. What is the language and vocabulary. That's being used. What are the trends etc. Secondly there also a lot of tools apps and digital aids so i would wanna familiarize myself with that and also as part of it asked myself. Is there something. I could create for example. Something that helps with spaced repetition. That's an important concept in this whole conversation around productivity two point. Oh or learning how to learn spaced. Repetition historically been things like flash cards so now there are various digital versions of those depending on craig's technical skills. There might or might not be a good option there but whatever happens next we need to go from a really big although highly relevant topic into the specific solution that craig designs and offers so in this situation what i would encourage you to do. If you're in a similar situation. I would encourage you to solve one part of the problem for one of the groups for example student. No takers like you mentioned. For example this really could be relevant to so many people but if you're just focusing on student note takers. We had story long ago about a guy who created this memorization system to help medical students learn parts of the anatomy and this became passive income that he made five or six hundred dollars a month from years into the future with no updates whatsoever. So that's a good example of one part of the problem for one specific subset once civic small group. That's the way that i would approach this challenge. I don't know exactly what craig should do. But i think this is the thought process. You follow to come to answer that question specifically whether it's him and this topic or you in this topic or you and some other topic whatever it is

"Yeah. Good points. Oli The depot scheduled to make twenty one, million next year, and then he would be an unrestricted free agent in the summer of twenty twenty, one like I said. Our listeners know there's a lot of uncertainty around the CAP will the the League and the Players Association, artificially inflate the number scowl because it is based on revenue, will they hold it flat at one? Hundred, nine, point? One, four, million, I, think that's the most likely scenario that is uncertain which obviously impacts contract extensions. But you make a good point in impacts, Victor Oladipo, more than a clear supermax player like. shifting gears a little bit scall- one of the segments that I know you'll be happy to retire on the show I think this is the last time we'll do at least until next year, and that is Boll Bowl Watch, scall- Bob All had another big game yesterday, people people who are interested in such things including ESPN, they asked the League if bowl bowl would be eligible. Eligible to win rookie of the year next year, keep in mind. The eight seating Games in Orlando do not count for the awards. This year and ESPN was informed scale that Bo bowl is eligible to win rookie of the year a year from now, which is when I think would be the likely time that he would have his first significant impact in a regular season game for the nuggets. Save your money. Don't bet bowl. Bowl. Right now, I'm just telling you guys save your money. What is a phenomenon with with these games like these games, I. Don't mean anything in a guy plays well was phenomenon behind that. There's so much goes into being good in the NBA. Why? Why? When People Watch Bobo? Do they think? Oh, my guy, he's GonNa. Be the next John Hunter Toco. I think a few things I mean, he's long. He, he can shoot. He blocked shots that. Seemingly out of the picture with that length and I think that's part of a scale i. also think honestly the fact that there hasn't been basketball for four months. People are starving for anything especially, anything new and bowl is new. You know unless people were watching Julia film which not many people I know do they hadn't seen Bobo play before but. He had a great run in a scrimmage games. It's exciting long-term. If you're a nugget fan you and I feel that he will have minimal impact if any impact. I, think on the seed in games and especially when the playoffs start for the number nuggets. Scale a couple of quick things here to round out the show again, Ryan mcdonagh, Brian Scallop rainy here with you gals. A scalp seems like the New Orleans Pelicans in the Utah Jazz may kneel together during the National Anthem Tomorrow Night Adam. Silver. The commissioner said, he supports players rights to to protest I the teams, the Pelicans gas thought instead of having to groups protests separately, they wanted to do it together and present a united front Scou- this a major league baseball and other. Other. Sports, the coaches in the game tomorrow night expected to join the demonstration. So I think given the NBA Social Awareness, and the fact that they're putting black lives matter on the court. Let player speak their minds in any media ability. I think this is something you anticipated happening as well. Yeah. I. Don't actually have a problem with it. You know what I do have a problem with was, did you see the WNBA players walkout during the national anthem like I don't know man? Listen, I, understand. Everyone has the right to say what they want and I think kneeling shows like all right. It's been universally. Put out there that when you neil, you're kneeling for social. The social injustice, right. But to walk away. Our this is why does that feel bad to me? Is that feel like it's it's going to another level of disrespect. I saw the report you're talking about scowl, but I also saw refuted by Holly Rowe from ESPN who I think is in the WNBA bubble, she said the walkout was actually before the anthem. So instead of leaving while the anthems going on out of protest against the players in the to. WNBA. Return to the locker room prior to the anthem starting now is that different than kneeling? Is that the same I think there can be different arguments based on your point of view. Of a few other quick things scale, and this is something that really struck me last night, the more I was thinking about it. The San Antonio Spurs Scou-, a long shot to get the eighth seed in the Western Conference I. If we take a step back from the season, look at the big picture scall-, what are your lasting memories from the San Antonio Spurs? If they don't make the playoffs this year that will snap their twenty two year consecutive playoff streak Scou- be your key takeaways from the Spurs. Amazing. Run over the past two decades. Oh, my gosh, will tim. Tim Duncan, Ginobili. Parker. But you also have to give credit to. I. Obviously. Tim. Duncan. Things luck. You win the lottery. Every person, their mother would have picked him Dunkin number one. But what they did with the Tony Parker pick, that was my class. He was the last pick in that in in the first round and then nobly, pick to take two guys who are basically you late first or early second round picks and turn them into what those guys are, which are probably hall of famers that gives a ton of credit to their organization then obviously Record speaks for itself and commitment in that. And the people that play for them usually had this tied to the to the San Antonio Spurs. So when you see all that, you realize that it's more than basketball for them. It's it's you're playing for each other you're playing for the organization you're playing for your coach, you're playing for your community. So I just I've been I. You know I was in the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs and. They were it was it was a really difficult place to win and I just now that it's going to come to an end, it's it's an amazing streaked be able to put that many years together of having successful seasons. I agree with that scale and mathematically the Spurs, do have a chance to twelfth on the, Western. conference. As a reminder, they need to get into the top nine and be a ninth and be within four place Excuse me four games of the place Memphis Grizzlies to trigger a planned scenario. But scale the spurs come into this thing, they're twenty, seven, thirty, six, they don't have their star big lamarcus, Aldridge. They'd also don't have his backup. Trey Lyles So I think you and I think it's a real long shot moving personally spend any money on San Antonio to get the AC to make the playoffs. This year upscale here are the numbers here are the main. Main takeaways from doing some research last night on the Spurs Twenty, two straight playoff appearances scale. They won seventy percent of the regular season games. They were one, hundred, a one, thousand, two, hundred, and twenty, eight wins and only five, hundred, twenty, eight losses they also on sixty percent of their playoff game scale. They were hundred, seventy and one fourteen over the past twenty, two years while winning five NBA titles scale that's remarkable and I think people who maybe haven't worked for NBA teams are having played for in Cochrane teams like you have. Don't realize how hard it is to do that and be that consistent year out with no elapses. Sure. Yeah, I mean. But obviously. If the Bron- went to one organization in stay with that organization, and then they nailed too late pics then like. It. All does surround around him. Duncan right. I mean we're not trying to I'm not trying to discredit pop or anything like that the organization, but getting the number one pick and that number one pick turning out to be Tim Duncan. It'll be like if Orlando had shack and. It'd be shocked, never not make the playoffs if he stayed with the Orlando Magic from start to the end..

I've mentioned pledge. I've that is the CLICHE. Tnt Goto Song during the Spurs Game. Like the put him journal blue. But anyway so the Dallas cowboys this week made a move savion Smith cornerback from the Houston roughnecks Alabama former five star recruit. I mean Lsu. Clearly they don't need to make any moves anymore in all seriousness. The cowboys I think have done a great job of preparing. It's kind of like I've never run a marathon before but my wife has right and so it's kind of like when you do that. You like prepare right and you eat the right things to make sure you have enough nutrients you eat the glue or whatever in your prepared and you have the playlist. You're set in your ready in the case of any potential sort of hiccup or emergency or whatever you've got something going the cowboys kind of have that I mean you know what I mean like. They've got on Smith Morris Kennedy. They have a safety ha ha Clinton dix. They have two defensive tackles and Joe McCoy and Antero. I mean the only need that they have. They have not addressed in some shape. Form or fashion and free agency is wide receiver. They need a slot receiver. And that's the only thing they haven't addressed they near Slot. I also I mean you can pump Maurice Kennedy and saving on Smith as much as you want but I'm not pump. Let's let's be clear. I'm just listing when Byron Jones has walked out the door and your top corners. Are She Tobaiwa Jordan? Lewis who I think can be really good and Anthony Brown. It's I feel great about my Secondary if I would if I was a Dallas Cowboys Fan. I would feel very uneasy. You shouldn't feel great. You should feel uneasy in fact should feel extremely easy especially because even if you think that they're great a year from now they're all gonna be free agents except for Anthony Browne on top of that. You will have to have paid deck on tonight. You'll have to pay deck. That's true and next offseason. I mean again. I'm not trying to you know. Just the sky's falling. But next offseason you Michael Gallup's eligible for a contract extension so things The Rams taught us anything. It's to not do a contract too early when there aren't a rookie deal man. The Rams I mean forty million dollars in debt money. They're paying todd. Gurley and Brandin cooks so much money to play for them. It's unbelievable but but they're the rams so anyway look the rams went all in and they got to a super bowl in order. I mean like it was it was worth it but you know there. There was a legitimate logic to what they did. But but so the cowboys. This week This past week I should say have interviewed or announced more interviews. They've been doing all virtual online socially distance interviews as of now pledge and we have a tracker available for you at blogging dot com with every interview. The cowboys have documented. They have some interesting names. They have three wide receivers and three defensive tackles. That's interesting to me. I mean it stands out and more than anything. I'm fascinated how the cowboys have been particular about who they are announcing the fat interviews with. Who are your top three. I guess. Let's call them if you're looking for a slot receiver in this year's draft. Who would be your top three choices to be a Dallas Cowboy? Well that depends. I mean like what round and I you. It doesn't matter what round you're looking at what you're asking me? I'm I'm taking C. D. lamb at seventeen. That's that's my answer. I don't think he's going to be there personally. I I think he's going to be you. Don't think they're at seventeen. You're saying that the temptation isn't even there. I think the best slot in this class might be Justin Jefferson. Okay the receiver from Lsu. I think very close probably you can get them in the second or Third Brown but somebody that's going to be able to work out of the slot. Do those kind of things you did with Randall. Cobb maybe even some some you know sweeps and runs and stuff that you did with Tehran Austin and stuff like that I think Devon du Vernay out of the University of is would fill fill the role of slot receiver very wh especially in Dallas China. Remember the last Longhorn that the cowboys drafted and I believe it was Jeff. Suame in two thousand fifteen so and then a minute and then somebody. That's very similar to Randall Cobb. In terms of just the way he kinda gets Jack and works underneath. And you kinda use them in a whole bunch of different ways and they're the he had a a core muscle surgery after the combine that he ended up injuring La- viscous Chenault may fall in the name of the injury and the medicals and not being able to exactly know where he is. He was talked about early in. The process is a late first. Rounder you may be able to snag them in the second or third round now you know. Interestingly enough when it comes to the VISCA specifically a few weeks ago. Let's see. I wrote this on April first. It wasn't a joke Pro Football Focus had an analytics based mock draft that particular day and they and their formula that goes into it There's certainly you know the world of analytics is very interesting. But they had the cowboys taking the Trayvon digs but they were not the first person or entity to conduct an analytic space. Mock draft in fact. This was I knew this was before then back on March Sixth Cynthia freeland friend of blogging. The boys put together an analytic space. Mock DRAFT NFL. Medias like sort of foremost expert on all things analytics and she had a lot of criteria that went into her analytic space and this was the first round. Mock draft. Mind you again. This was back on March. Six and with the seventeenth overall pick. She had the cowboys taking the viscous. Chenault the Colorado wide receiver again. This is sort of analytic space. And I don't I'm certainly not start at the freeland but I found that interesting that from an analytics perspective. May we did? And I don't know I again. This is my sort of way superficial level understanding and I don't remember the entire mock but I wonder if the analytics argument is like points points points points so everybody's taking wide receivers. Artemis which demerits Levinsky Guana the cowboys I don't think is points points points base. I think a lot of it would have to do with. Of course she act which he got a lot of wallet. Colorado has ability to get separation coming out of breaks. I was wondering model. She use like they're different analytics that help to solidify like rang. Off the line of scrimmage things like that because CD lamb wouldn't rank high in those factors because he got free releases so many times because of the offense that. Oh you runs on. That's obviously those sort of philosophy reminds whatever you WANNA call it. The copies of adopted offensively is we need pristine route. Runners can gain separation You know I remember hearing. I think it was an interview with Brandon Bean. I forget who but there was an interview with somebody that I heard on the podcast. Six months ago talking about how the buffalo bills really really really went heavy in that same mindset. That's why they moved on from Kelvin. Benjamin and they went and got receivers like Cole Beasley. That could gain separation. And it's you look they traded for Stefan Digs and certainly paid more than there is on Carlos Different Andre Hopkins. So that's it's interesting. It's an interesting thought exercise. This is looking a little ahead. Pledge but it's something that we're GonNa talk about next week on the blog and the boys podcast for you and I wanted to get your thought to kind of set the table. What is the most talented Dallas Cowboys team? That didn't win the Super Bowl. Oh we're going to explore this a little bit more in depth so for the bt listeners. We'll definitely you know we'll we'll toss it around ladies San Antonio but we're going to cover it all week long. It's a bit of our theme for us next week. What's what's the one that comes to me because I have four and I'm sort of sort of going at it with four specific teams. I don't know if you want me to tell you. Obviously the one I think of is the one that kept them from repeating. That's ninety four ninety four my forty that. I mean you look at the talent. They had on both sides of the ball. And just the amount of hall of famers on that team and it's. It's almost blatantly obvious that that should be probably one. I'm pretty sure one of Romo's teams at least should be on that list. So you talk about garage and flows Al Adams and Damore fairy way. I've thought about this in you. Know there are a lot of ways to go but I think you can certainly. I don't know about talent but you could. You could go. Nineteen seventy cowboys. That lost to the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl. Five you could go the one thousand nine hundred eighty eighty one eighty two teams that lost the NFC championship games. Under Danny why I wanted to keep it not somewhat fresh but you know last quarter century so to speak ish. I Know Ninety four technically is in that but just for the purposes of everybody's memories a little bit a little bit more on block from the last twenty five twenty six years than anything further back so my four teams and we're GONNA explore to these a little bit more in depth like I said the Sheila Preview get the nineteen ninety-four cowboys lost the NFC championship game. On the road. In San Francisco after surrendering a twenty one point lead to the forty niners gave it their all but couldn't ultimately clawback two thousand seven. The first Tony Romo team that lost the New York giants eventual suitable champions. Obviously just like the niners ninety four. I mean that was an incredibly talented team. Thirteen pro bowlers. You know and you look. I mean that had te'o that head Jason Whitney in Prime Jason Witten yeah right similarly a keeping someone in team. The two thousand fourteen cowboys. I think you know they weren't as talented. I don't think either one of those two teams from an overall roster perspective but that was Tony Romo operating at the absolute peak of his powers. And so I think that was. That was still prime. Dez Bryant and so and prime prime but certainly elite cowboys offensive line and my final one for you and allow you to pick the two thousand sixteen cowboys the thirteen and three team one seed that lost to now. Mike McCarthy's are not now. But then Mike McCarthy Green Bay packers and I'd like to throw one more in there just to Kinda and it's not because of their record or anything like that but you look on paper at last year's team and we all thought that that was a super bowl caliber team you have Robert Quinn who I love and a half sacks Byron Jones who just got paid the most money by any cornerback in free agency. You had back operating at the height of his powers. You have Zeke. Who is still performing. You added a Randall Cobb in the slot you had a Maury Cooper and Michael Gallup Layton Band Rush Jalen Smith both coming off phenomenal seasons the year before and demarcus Lawrence coming off his big. You had so many pieces on this team that the fact that they didn't make the playoffs is a shame. That's a fair take. Certainly I think because you're saying talent like maybe the most talented teams to never win. Obviously it's a subjective exercise And I certainly agree with your line of thought. I think maybe we put more time between two thousand nine hundred eighteen and us. We'll lump that one in but I mean I think when you I guess for me like where it's hard to put those on the same categories the others because in the ninety four team when the NFC championship game three made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.

What does that mean. We have some around eight to ten million pregnant females and move into the cave and in march and then in early june. Everybody has a baby baby. It's called a pup and so that's what our population jumps up to around fifteen to twenty million wow and the bats leave and bracken cave.

"I think that's a very viable option then you have guys like like aaron baynes marcus smart if they resign him terry rozier who else they can grab like you have enough depth there that in terms of the east assuming you know or depending on what lebron does but his is rose rosiere who's who's able to score twenty seven twenty five twenty six points a game as he gonna sit for half a game or over half against going to have to your planning i mean unless he can prove that he's behind that he's better than kyri which is not you know like it's just in or he goes off on his own and go sign somewhere else and and this is a good piece for a team nice before a team like san antonio san antonio or the lakers or philly i mean that's the guy that's a big guy in and i think too i mean there's a reason why any didn't want to include him in any of these traits like great i'll admit i laughed at him like when he wouldn't trade terry rozier as part of a package for jimmy butler for paul draining these things it sounds ridiculous time in a little bit so sounds ridiculous in hindsight 'cause those are great players but i plus she my water make jimmy butler doesn't fit into the brad stevens signal he say the ball sticks with him and i love him and actually love minnesota minnesota's fundable but rosie i remember watching him in college he played for he plays from louisville and they played against michigan loss to michigan but he was so impressive and i was like this kid is insane back then all he was just fast like like he's.

"Yeah i think i think that has a a much greater impact on the entire nba than what's going on in san antonio yeah she i mean the cavs it's like some it's it's something new every every week i mean even with kevin love's admission of his exile we even mentioned the soup incident and more serious note we you know we're not we're not talking about how core burs brother passing away it's just it's just this yes so yeah i think i the highest rated drama in the nba right this you ever he has a shot at the championship because there's also the stakes like i would say oklahoma city's had quite a bit of drama you just it hasn't exploded but that's been really interesting story to follow this year in terms of how they have fit together and not fit together and what the implications of that mean i think the spurs i say the right behind the cavs just and partly the reason though in is is just that we don't hear from coli so we have to hear from lebron everyday and this is it's an interesting point counterpoint in that has never taken that mantle in terms of face the league where you know the faces of the league talked to the media and salot l the time they see themselves as represented players voices they see themselves as big characters collide as a man of action he's not a man of words he's like he's just somebody who plays really hard and like his performance before him but when he's not playing you just kinda see him sitting at the end of the bench in street clothes every night and.

"Ramona's going with the cavs but higher stakes drama your opinion the cavs of the spurs this season 'cause you could argue that all right with the cavs they've had a lot of drama but like at least they're you know still considered somewhat favorites in the east behind the brawn james who is fine and happy and having one that when they have the best season his career whereas the drama with the spurs like the spurs without colli like if if they had kalat and lamarcus just playing the way he is and all of these these young guys like we we may be talking about the spurs of top of the west not not the rockets to me to me actually the drama that's been sexier to me as the cavs sexier is a different of categories i still go with the cavs just because i think anything that happens with lebron and it was on to see that team completely trade almost half the team away at the trade deadline the isaiah thomas stuff going on with them you had the shut up and dribble you're so much stuff going down in the middle of the year yeah coughing up blood i mean that's you know i mean at the at the end of the day what's happened with san antonio yes it has affected them to a certain degree of what's what's going to happen with them in the postseason but we're talking about the cavaliers which is team that everybody was like they're definitely coming out of the east even despite the fact that boston made all this changes everybody was like lebron cleveland's gonna come out and then all of a sudden we wondering what's going to happen now when they traded half of their team away.

"That it it's not under the teams control and kind of giving more information that could wise acting on his own like i don't know it's it's an interesting dichotomy with you know the old regime of the spurs but then you have danny green on the other side saying you know tweeting now that there was no tension in their team meeting i wanna do a little bit of grew speculating and like ramona do not answer this because i don't want you to be aggravated in the mischaracterized i'm assuming you don't have like deep insights into the situation cassidy i'm assuming the same so aggregated keep that in mind this is just total rampant speculation kawai leonard does not play for the spurs again this season does he play is he in a spurs uniform at the start of next season casts pants i mean this is total speculation as you said like i just i feel like here's a be there but i have i've no basis for that right that everyone else in the public just like ramona said trying to make sense once playoffs hit and he's not suited up and that team goes to war and they're looking at him on the bench like i don't know i just i don't know this think something something may pop off that may be a reparable grow speculation yeah again with the disclaimer that this is pure speculation on my part i normally i would say that he's going to remain the san antonio spurs just because that organization finds a way to keep his talent but i guess in all my years of being covering the nba would usually start to see tea leaves like this where there is some sort of drama coming out it usually doesn't usually leads to something where it doesn't end it doesn't end nice it usually is a divorce and so in this case and especially when you have an athlete who doesn't talk like hawaii perhaps maybe maybe his people or his party feels underappreciated then that usually means that they want to be somewhere else the money is ridiculous though and i don't know in the nba it's it is always hard for a player to give up that kind of money but perhaps that's not important to quite maybe what's important is happiness are we even are we.

"One team in the lowly spurs of the other team because you realize they came in having lost six out of seven games four straight games they had lost they've been pretty pathetic without kwahi leonard and yesterday they didn't have a guy who had been vying for six manoftheyear and monitor geno blaze got a chef contusion he did not see the floor yesterday and it was thirty four to twenty spurs just in the fourth quarter so let's not lose sight of that it may have been fairly strategic on the bronze part two sinned this salvo at the referees just to take the onus off the mess that was the cavalier's offense on the floor during the fourth quarter and their defense for that matter but now let's go back to the bigger picture point i am shocked that lebron james shows yesterday to take this shot at the referees because mr sharp exhibit a here is the san antonio spurs have fouled the least number of times in the nba this year they they stole foul a whole lot so let's let's keep it in the context here that we have the team that's fouled the leased after low braun on friday night played at memphis and by the way i gave him high marks on twitter for this you can look it up he did play backtoback at memphis on friday night but if you wanna talk about discrepancy myth this is the team in the nba that his fouled the most times they have fouled three hundred twenty nine times more than the spurs have foul so if you want to take a stand against the referees and how you're not being officiated take it on friday night ahead of the big sunday national tv game against popovich and the spurs because memphis fouls the most and still you shot only four free throws against memphis you played your high minutes and he played by far the most minutes in the game yesterday but he shot only four free throws yesterday i okay so your your criticism your your case should have been made.
