But folks in my district find it very hard to stay in their homes as it is with extremely high property taxes and adding more costs to real estate in general drives up the cost for everybody and that includes renters.

"This is Bloomberg law with June Grasso from Bloomberg radio. In a death penalty case, Arizona did end runs around Supreme Court precedent, creating a procedural maze that blocked a death row inmate's relief at every turn, reminding just as Elena Kagan of the works of Kafka. I think Kafka would have loved this. Cruz loses his Simmons claims on direct appeal because the Arizona courts say point blank, Simmons has never applied in Arizona. And then he loses the next time around because the Arizona court say Simmons always applied in California. I mean, tells you when, as I lose, whatever that expression is, I mean, how can you run a railroad that way? For decades, Arizona refused to follow Supreme Court precedent established in the 1994 Simmons case, which gave defendants facing the death penalty the right to tell juries that, if they spared them from the death penalty, they would never be eligible for parole. So in 2016, the Supreme Court specifically instructed Arizona to follow that law. But Arizona denied John Cruz that instruction at his trial, and then used a state procedural law to stop him from seeking reversal of his death sentence. Many of the justices seemed troubled by Arizona flouting the Supreme Court. Here's justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. Simmons made clear that this is what the law was. So many times Arizona said, we're not following it. And we had to have lynch in order to really cinch the deal. One thing I'm a little worried about is that if we rule in your favor in this case that it will be giving other states essentially a road map for defying this court's criminal law decisions. Joining me is Jordan Rubin, Bloomberg law reporter. This appeal is not about the defendant's guilt, but about his sentence. Tell us a little about the case and what happened during the penalty phase. Sure. So John Cruz was convicted in Arizona state court, a first degree murder for shooting Tucson police officer Patrick Harvey in 2003, but it was in cruise's guilt, but his sentence that prompted the issue at the Supreme Court. So at the sentencing phase, Cruz wanted the jury to know that he would have been ineligible for parole if he was sentenced to life instead of death. And that actually wound up being a really important issue because we know that the jury foreman actually later said that they are looking for a reason to be lenient, but Arizona didn't allow that at the time. And that was despite an earlier U.S. Supreme Court precedent from 1994 called Simmons, which said that defendants have the right to inform juries of their parole ineligibility in that situation when their future danger is at issue. So for decades, Arizona refuses to follow that Supreme Court rule, so then the court basically tells Arizona directly, this is the rule you have to follow it. That's right. So the Simmons case happened that the Supreme Court in 1994. Cruz was prosecuted in Arizona after that. But then there was an Arizona case that went to the Supreme Court after Cruz was sentenced called lynch against Arizona in 2016 where the U.S. Supreme Court basically told Arizona you have to apply this precedent simmonds. And so Cruz had previously raised a challenge before the linch case trying to argue that he should have been able to tell the jury about his parole ineligibility status based on Simmons, then after lynch after the U.S. Supreme Court told Arizona, you have to apply our precedent, Cruz tried again, but he was rejected again in state court, and that's what prompted this U.S. Supreme Court appeal this kind of ping ponging back and forth and cruises repeated attempts and repeated rejections to try and get the benefit of this U.S. Supreme Court precedent in the sentence case. So that's why justice Elena Kagan said Kafka would have loved this case. Exactly. So the way she put it, she says, Costco would have loved this because Cruz loses his Simmons claim on direct appeal in the first instance before the lynch case. And then he tries again and the reason he loses according to the state is because no, Simmons is actually always applied. It was just that lynch told Arizona that it had to then apply the law. So it wasn't what's called a significant change in the law, according to Arizona, and that's super important for this case because it all comes down to this state procedural rule, which says that on post conviction, like what Cruz was trying to raise. He can only get the benefit if there was a significant change in law. And according to Arizona, the lynch holding wasn't a significant change. I thought it was odd that the state was still arguing in its briefs that Simmons and lynch were wrongly decided by the court and justice Kagan told Arizona's attorney Joseph Kane field that she found that shocking and perhaps a bit insulting. In this case, you're still saying, like lynch is wrongly decided Simmons is wrongly decided we can't really we just really hate all this stuff. It sounds like your thumb and your nose at us. Justice Kagan is absolutely no disrespect was intended by that footnote to the court. And I apologize if that is the way it came across. Tell us about Arizona's arguments. So Arizona takes this sort of hyper technical reading. They're saying it's just the state issue that in the first instance, it shouldn't even get to the U.S. Supreme Court because it's a state court dealing with the state procedural rule. And so there is this kind of threshold issue at the U.S. Supreme Court of whether the justices can even really take a look at this because it's a state issue. And so there's this initial argument of whether we're even getting into the territory of dealing with the type of federal issue that the U.S. Supreme Court can grapple with. And so that's one of Arizona's arguments that the U.S.

"Crown jewel, tyrese maxi, or whether or not they're going to try and like basically swap out their depth for more depth for better depth and kind of mimic what you saw to some extent the warriors have there, which is like they could use some combination of 7 to 9 guys in a much more productive way than the sixers work is like right now I'm at that point where when you watch the finals, you're at the luxury of having your team in it. But when you watch the finals, that looks like a different sport than the one that your team was playing and you're just kind of like, I don't know what the road map is to that. I say this a lot, but the finals to me informs every decision I'm thinking about for a draft and free agency. If you're offering me a guy who can't play and what I just watched and why am I interested in that guy? You know, you can get gimmick guys that can win you around or two rounds, whatever, but you're right. It was depth. It was defense. It was two way guys. It was chemistry and continuity. The irony is, if you don't, if you traded simmonds for something else other than try to do the star model, you probably would have had some of the depth that you're talking about. If you do like Simmons for buddy and Halliburton, it just feels like you've got a couple more pieces to throw. You've got like a couple of different combinations to try. Yeah. Well, you can't do that. You can't. The first decision is James Harden. What are you hearing? There's all kinds of weird rumors about harder right now about Philly trying to get him on a shorter deal about maybe him exploring the fridge and studio space. What like Brian Wilson with pet sounds? Is this part a little bit? There's some San Antonio. He's always got along with Popovich. He always liked Texas. There's some Houston comeback stuff. No. I don't know what to believe. The Tillman harden reunion? They're back. They're going to hash it out. Listen, if LeBron and Dan Gilbert can reconcile, I'm not really that anything. My guess is that Philly will sign harden, but it will not be for the match. I think that would be insanity. Opt in and then two years on top. So he gets his, he gets his opt in here, and then I think they're going to do two more years extension. And walk me through the Philly fan base as they react to that news. I think that while I think as long as it's not the full, the full 5 year or the full, I guess it would be the 5 year if he opts out, then he can get the 5. I think everybody is comfortable with it. We made our bed. This is who Daryl traded Simmons for. He knows hard and better than everybody. We all saw that he had basically 5 good games in him in the second half of that season. I was basically on acid after those 5 games. I thought it was like the coolest thing I'd ever seen. And then it all fell apart. He was pretty useless. Maxie became the second best player clearly on that team over down the stretch. And then Tobias may have usurped harden in the playoffs. So it's just kind of like, it is what it is. It just can't be for four years. It can't be that this long-term commitment to them. And your convinced maxi stays on the team. Unless they go for this build deal that weirdly people have divine from windhorst appearance on greeny, where it was like he kind of laid out a scenario in which the sixers were looking for additional talent. And then there was like, it was basically intuited from something went or said that that was Beale, and it would have been Tobias and maxi for Beale. Tobias and Maxie for Beale. Well, I said this on my podcast in February and you know, I don't just throw shit out on the pod. It's usually like this is stuff I believe in and I'm saying it for a fact. And be wanna Beal that was always what was going on. And you know, the front office was pushing for hard and then Bill got hurt and it's made the decision for them. But I do think there's a B and B thing. And you know, I think it's a possibility. I just, to me, I don't know. Doesn't that feel very like three, four years ago thinking though? To be like, we're just gonna get in be hard and be together and then we'll worry about filling out four through ten. Maybe we'll get, it's like, can they even afford PJ Tucker if that happens? Like, I don't even know where they would get the guys to fill that out. We just watched this happen with Brooklyn. You know what I mean? I don't want a team that's so top heavy. So you're saying it's like walking into Netflix and being like, I have an idea. It's a show about it's during the tech era and it's a little like WeWork and it's just too late at this point. It's the 80s there are these kids. They found another dimension where you guys buy them. What do you think? You guys don't have anything like that, right? I think the three star thing is shot at S.W.A.T. for a variety of reasons. I'm with you. Especially because once you turn your franchises over to these guys, good luck. To some extent, I think it's still dictated. There's like a popular.

"Think he's in the running for worst luck of any superstar. Last 12, 15 years. You would say Durant in that conversation too, but that was by Durant's own choosing. No, a combination of injury and just teammate luck. They get embiid. They get the number one pick. They take Ben Simmons over jaylen Brown and he really. He bullied bell and simmonds into this problem. By saying, innocent senates about how he passed that balloon was somehow. That bed Simmons is in a spiral, holding the net hostage. That was crazy. Basically said, yeah, I'm not going to play in game four. That's like, what? But what we said, he was going to play a game for how that happened. And then it was targeting. That whole situation. I know this. He was wearing sunglasses in the first half, and then pictures went viral on social media than the sunglasses. Right. It was just like, I don't know why he would wear sunglasses on and unless you have like an eye problem where you have a concussion situation. Where you can't see the bright lights, like you're going to really sit on the bench and wear sunglasses. What are you at the beach or something? Like, what is going on here? It's funny. You don't want to be a distraction. And yet you're distraction for four straight weeks, right? Even the game I went to game one at halftime, they're shooting on the Celtic side of the bench. So it was in front of the self expense. So you had to walk across just to be involved. And simmonds walks all the way across to where everybody's like shooting and keeping limber at halftime. And he kind of stands under the basket and he's rebounding a little bit. Jimmy Goldstein style. Because he was like rebounding like a ball boy, but he's wearing his weird band Simmons outfit. And then he walks over to the to the sideline, and he's just kind of, it's just kind of like, what's this guy doing? Like Robert Williams is doing this, you don't say like Robert Williams under the Celtics basket, rebounded for people. Very strange. I don't think there's been a more difficult coaching situation like a challenging. There's probably has been. But I mean, the Laker one and the winning time, that seemed pretty challenging, but what we're watching. But can you imagine a little fiction? Just a tad. Yeah. But can you imagine being Steve Nash, you're coaching this team, your star player says, we don't really have a coach. Like.

"They built the double digit we in the first half run. Go as well. But his impact was immediate. How'd you think he looked out there? You were there in person. He looks like rob. He really does. Throwing down a lob, making the rotations defensively. He got inside on Bruce Brown once on a, you know, one of those short row attempts by Brown, this is the play where Blake kind of dropped the ball and Brown ran it back for a dunk. That was robbed in my opinion. Fill in the lane and being an intimidating presence in there against ground. Now offensively, I think it's gonna take a little while because timing and verticality and those sort of things are what get him buckets. And that's all off right now just from being out for so long. But in terms of just being a presence and a defensive force, I thought he was right back to who he was. It's limited, John. It's a very all you wanted to see was him play and not look scared and be able to move. Everything else was gravy. You're building towards something big. Give me those digits. What's up? Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll see you later. Y'all have no idea about Joe sway's game y'all. And I'm gonna just leave it right there. By the way. Speak on this, right? So you really don't want me to do that, Joe. Where's the Joe sway banner? You just make, you just pan that camera to your left or yeah, you're left. I thought I'm using myself, but I guess I know, hey, all right, yeah. So I got a bunch of girls. Hey, ladies, just keep it down. Show us almost over. I guess we're going on over here. And my girls had like 3%. So I got here just in time, and then. And the show, Joseph. 7 guys, 7 guys, he was in a nut with. Those are Jimmy's girls. Keep it down. So rob looked good. I'm still a story of the game. The story of everything for me is the absolute destruction of the nets. And watching KD and I mean barring, you know, game one with Irving, but watching Kyrie and KD absolutely shit the bed on such a big stage here is so surprising and so interesting. They might get blown out, John in game four. Bailout, we don't want to go to Boston. If the shots don't fall early, they're done. They're done. They're going to pack it up. Tells me they're going to fight for a and you know what? Do you guys think there's any chance Simmons plays? They should just play Simmons. No. Punishment for Simmons. Durant. Durant should sit in a clown suit and let Simmons play 40 minutes tomorrow on Monday. I mean, that's not what happened. I wonder if simmonds, I mean, is he even stood up for this team next year? I don't know what, I don't even want to talk about him. I don't waste anywhere breathing. Oh yeah, you said that like a half hour ago too. I don't want him to talk. We've wasted a year. This probably ends on Monday. We'll be back here and then we'll have a little break. You know, after that, so again, thanks for joining us. We dug it. We're back in two days. There's no more three days off here for that game. And that might be it. It might be a little break after that. So anybody predicting this series.
"simmonds" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"At Gmail dot com. All right, so Chris, as we kind of pseudo started today's show, we have to officially start today's show with a conversation about Thursday nights. Heavily anticipated showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets. Two organizations that didn't like each other before the trade deadline. And then James Harden and Paul Millsap get traded for Ben Simmons Seth curry Andre Drummond and two first round picks. And this was as we were just discussing. This was Philly's first chance to boob and simmonds. It's Christmas, it's New Year's Eve. It's the 4th of July all wrapped into one three hour sporting event for a city that really loves to hate. They mock cheered when Simmons came out to dunk before the game, they chanted F Ben Simmons before the scoreboard made it ludicrous to do so. And in the end, of course, Simmons, who, again, did not play. He had the last laugh, the nets won one 29 to 100 James Harden when three for 17 from the floor, tyrese maxi scored four points. It was just a disaster for Philadelphia, but I'm just curious, when you were just watching, particularly, I guess, early on, and just as the game kind of flowed, what stood out to you, Chris. Yeah, after that moment I told you about it, I was like, oh, this shit's not even close. Stood out to me very quickly. Being on Twitter during it, it made me think of a couple things. I don't think we watched Philly, certainly, you know, when we talk about appointment viewing also, we all wanted to see harden and affiliate uniform. What does that first game or two look like for him? It looked pretty easy. You know, it looked pretty effortless in some ways. It becomes very easy to forget that they had not really played great competition in his first few games in Philly. And so, you know, kind of the plaudits and everybody, you know, myself included, I think, saying, you know, maybe Philly, maybe this was a really good deal for Philly and maybe this is a team that we need to start thinking about a little bit more in championship contention. As a contender, obviously I don't think anybody was counting them out necessarily, but maybe the idea of them being more of a favorite or closer to being a favorite is valid. So I mean, I don't know that there should be any massive takeaways I saw some takes last night that, you know, for a quick minute, depending on how much you've fed in the atmosphere, just kind of the hype around last night's game. People say, oh, look, Hardin disappears again..

Don't go creating just because you think you might get a few shares go create it because you think you can add more value than the other asset that already exists when you lean into that mindset in that approach typically going to come out on top that lends itself into my next question. Which is this strange dance. That marketers play with google and search engine optimization. You know we look at key words. We we've been a lot of us have been guilty of keyword stuffing and writing to to the algorithm as opposed to writing to the audience given that. I'm very interested in your advice on how content marketer should approach google and the whole algorithm. I think you have to be human. I and then robot seconds you first start with the focus being. I need to solve a certain problem for the human. the human. that's going to go in typing a question. The human. that's going to go in asking how to do a certain thing you start with that and when you can figure out whether or not you can solve that problem you then create the most valuable thing in the world that you can develop as your resources your time etc..

And I mean, God, I mean no one goes over the crossbar, quite the way home. Well, you haven't passed an act as well as I wanted to touch on one thing I want to touch on was the shooting. You know. I think that the the hip may be hindering him a little bit said, one of my live stream. Yeah. Yeah. His hip just looks like his in the rotation of that one timer and so on. And and he shoots like a baseball hockey player and it's been well documented that that he he wants to, like, shoot a, my lack which is basically off of the freaking tow or of the month, the the chip. Yeah. So yeah. Same thing. Auston Matthews. Do they do that new, like, snapshot, where they curl it back, and they whip it at the net? Yes, yeah, yeah. So, I mean, hopefully, it's okay hip injuries a tough because I always use Wayne Simmonds as an example, but I know that Wayne Simmonds wasn't a one-time setup guy, dead. Like like pasternack's roll. The the thing with passing a package is more like that Ovechkin type like I'm in my office. This is where I'm shooting, good luck, stop it.

Because even though he might be playing at eighty, to ninety percent, which is allowable that he'll probably still not fully healed. Yeah. And so he I just looked it up real quick. He did so since the trade deadline and basically off the top six was formed, he had four goals and 12 assists and the seasons. So, sixteen points not terrible by any means, but none of them were power plate and none of his four goals were a power-play goal and that's in my eyes a little bit concerned because he's your goal scorer, especially on the power play and your threat. And I think dead If I'm looking at it, I'm looking at it quickly. He only had two power-play points since the trade deadline, and that's a little bit concerning. Obviously, the Bruins power-play hasn't been the best summer season and especially the first p p. Yeah, yeah..

Both into next bus that would help enormously trying to sort out kind of the mental health issues as well as the critical issues so we can redesign workplaces to be more introvert friendly. What does that actually look like what it's like is it goes back because as you head about half nagas i think this whole up to now to simply rethink about the working weeks step outside the office for the time being that whole three two things with a full one thing and most of your strong introverted and you can find out that now if only to spend three days in the hubbub a social contexts that were in today's that would be great okay but when it comes into the workplace itself then it's a simple question of there was the whole movement towards plan offices where you just surrounded by humanity. Say all you want to do is find cubicle. Go hide yourself away. Because that's where your best and what's interesting is if you think about just the fabric How companies work.

I think bizarrely enough teddy. I tell you if. I can make a jump back to what we were beforehand create. Suzy stands like a mongolian baptist for good the web when we did a survey on creativity in the workplace. Two thousand twenty. We looked to the past five years to find out what kind of people being recruited. By companies i k and we found the vast majority recruits it tons of mindset will the logic rational mindset rather than the emotional creative mindset so the actual kind of set its signed as we get older. We the more kind of crazy. Most the tools will laws. You get things done inside. Hit side. I just think it's almost. Elvis knocked out athabasca system by the time that we get to kind of like you know on the twenties and thirties when we need it most so you need to be crazy but you need to become a care of people in need side. I think it's just something. The as a human race would become more morass to logical less emotional and less crazy. Okay so coming into the part. To how as a leader do we encourage the conversation and the practice of mental health in the workplace. And this is a good one because i think at the moment unforced sneeze in the workplace. Be great leaps in mental health. Genuine society lost bastion. Lost job. to be done is probably the workplace where it still is still not. I did not good enough as the thing i think. One of the reasons why is because the companies if you look at that kind of mission statements policies evidenced in place and the took in talk but not necessarily of walking the walk polly.

"Listening. I'm hearing you the second that sympathetic that much more intuitive and much more listening rather than simply talking. It's kind of the key thing right now. The with with my wife. That trying to to publicize is the importance of people closest to those suffering. Meant to help. Because they're the ones that can often in inverted commas. Save a life we think pretty powerful so. Let me just check that. I've understood this correctly. So there's red flags and they'll be different for everyone and it's usually to look out for. Are they doing something that's out of character. Not their normal pattern behavior then to ask twice first to say. I'm not use normal self. Are you okay and then to ask again because the concern is still there. Are you okay. And then not to jump in with frac advice. Do this do that. Get your guardrails up. That presumably comes later. The i m mental health. First aid is to listen with empathy and to get the person to talk and unpack it. Set correct the third was important because it doesn't come naturally to most people particularly men. I'm going to be so but but you want to give a solution okay. Some offering well do this do that do this. That's not what's needed is not worth it. And it's funny because my wife mail. She's very rational person. And so. When i was ill for round had temptation was to the to solutions case you got you stressed what. He need coffee things off you to do this. Why insights the kind of thing. Well it was great advice but she could have been speaking a foreign language. It wasn't. I didn't need that time. That says Digital thing to do and when my daughter too much into the mix model. Emily had really bad of anorexia and for many years and with my wife myself we became a harris was quite interesting to see mild becoming much. Much more irrational. Tim has she dealt with. Emily having learned about how she dealt with me so to speak. So i think it's something where it's tried to be able to speak two languages because the language of rational is really important because quite practical getting things done for the language of channel is as in posted because this is was the one language are knocks. The person you're talking to and doing that. Can you get to the rational stage of of putting up. Your mental health rails.

Your mind is not full of the rubbish of the day is simply open to stuff. So that's the produce the brain releases. All the stuff has been playing around overnight. And that's when the idea is is so it's something that i just passionately believed to be the case. Why simple is because imagine this. I've been training in big corporations for about thirty years. And i just realized that one place where are not crazy was in the workplace. So it's like it feels like a filipino. A fraud for thirty years. That will waste time trying to be creative in the workplace. And that's why so ironically in. I know that we've had really bad in the uk like most The will but when when covid hit and all the sudden everybody was forced to work at home i sub Great civilising because i knew that creativity was working the workplace to work at home. There was all of a sudden this great opportunity to try to bit more relaxed and let your creative juices fled and the unfortunate thing is the big corporates when their employees work.

"The people employed need to be creative to be critically quite confident and the the irony is even that is big companies charged with developing los new ideas. And that's lifeblood often when when you ask a group of people in a in a training coast hands up. Hit who thinks that creative you can really push up hands. Real clear need for in the workplace. People don't feel that creative. So i is. My job is to help unlock people's crazy confidence. So that they can then develop new ideas with the companies. That's my skill really. That's that's what my company does said for example that used the skill to devalue you concepts to do brainstorming to give people the belief that they are creative and it's not simply the role of for example the advertising agencies alone to be the christ was. Yeah so i think that's destroyed basically with every single ounce of creativity in every single individual. It sounds a little bit sort of pompous emission to get the most christian. Jesus at everybody love it. That's that's so fun. And i think one of the misnomers from what i understand of creativity is that people think it's you. Just sit there with a blank canvas and pluck something from the sky whereas the reality is it's about having containers and frameworks to work within. The constraints can sometimes liberate ideas. Is that your experience and your saying that. Because that's often. This is much easier to created within the constraint people can solve some boundaries to work within than they can be more creative. I states Craigslist dot simply passing down.
