Why Townhall.com's Kurt Schlichter Decided to Self-Publish His Novels
"And we are back with none other than town hall don't come, Kurt slater. Kurt explained to us your reason Kurt for self publishing your series of novels. Why self publish? Well, three reasons. The first reason is it's very hard to sell any kind of thick. There's such a glut out there and the publishers just don't want it. My agent can sell a non fiction book in about three ten. That's easy, a fiction book, almost impossible. You basically have to be a map that way or car, I forget his name, or Vince Flynn. Right. The guy who writes Vince Flynn thing. And then you can do it. But otherwise, it's going to be very hard. The second thing is, my stuff is outrageously conservative. It is going to terrify a publishing house. And in fact, the bulwark guys have attacked it as even though I would dare anybody to read any of the 6 books and tell me what color the main character is. Because it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. I don't care. Idris Elba wants to do the movie. Nobody would be happier than me. Or, you know, or anybody. It's so silly to me. The last thing is, if you do it right, you can do very well on self public. And I, you know, I'm all about multiple streams of income. I am a capitalist. I sell these books because they do, in fact, sell. And they've gotten as high as 29 out of all the books on Amazon. For a book I wrote here in

"That's it. We're talking about them because they're on a 6 game winning streak, and that's great. And that's cool and they're streaking and we talk about streaks. They're just they are in the words of Dennis Smith. They are. Was it Dennis Smith? Then it's green. Who is the coach of the Vikings? They are who we thought they were. And you're absolutely correct, you know? They don't beat themselves. And in the MBA, especially early on, that's a great team to have. You know? And, you know, we're not remiss. We can't ignore the fact that there's a lot going on with that organization. And it's truly a testament to the stability and I guess you can say the system encore that they have built that has been productive for them to step in each and every night and still produce. So that's why I said it's good. For those players to go out there and play, be consistent. And still find a way to get wins. I was impressed with this. What is it 6 games? 16 one three? 6 game streak. 8, I think 8 and we'll be fine. We'll come back and play like you did last year and give us 16 and ten, shoot a high percentage. I don't worry about eating. He's solid. He's good. And look, if people want to hear about the Robert sober stuff, I did a podcast last week with Baxter Holmes who reported the story. We talked about all that, so I'm not ignoring that. We talked about all that the initial reaction to that. It's all still filing in, Baxter and I talked a little bit about that. Last week, but as you said gene between Monte Williams and Chris Paul, and even Devin Booker who's emerging as one of the good young leaders in stable locker room guys in the league, they're pretty well wired to just shove that aside, let the league investigation do what it does, and you know, there's going to be news there was already news backstory reported yesterday that Robert sovereign wife is sending threatening text messages to people, which is, which is not a great move on any level. And so they're going to but this is a team that I think is wired the right way to just sort of keep playing basketball. Do their jobs. That's 6 game winning streak. Can't argue with it. They had a weird list. It's been a weird season. I feel like there's just been a lot of up and down teams, a lot of four game winning streaks followed by four game losing streaks. A lot of teams that I'm kind of confused by, especially the Mads. I'm stuck on the mask, but it's a very weird season. Well, janae, I'm gonna see you in Los Angeles next week, hopefully for NBA today. Fingers crossed, I always love when you come into town. And I look forward to it. Thank you for a little time on the old low post podcast and maybe we'll have another grab bag of random teams next week because it's sure are a lot of weird random teams this year. Okay, thank you. My pleasure.

"Back Nick. You know, the KD signing in Golden State just it's impossible to overstate how much that warped everything about the NBA, including the perception of Steph Curry. Because the warriors were so good, they were unbeatable, basically, like it took injuries to everybody on the roster for anyone to beat them when they had Durant. They were so good that the only interesting thing to talk about was who's the most important player on the team? Curry or Durant. And it created and Durant being, I think if you pulled 30 GMs right now and asked him who's the best player in the NBA, Durant would get the most votes, Yanis would probably get second. I don't know. It's like it's one of those two guys. And I think you saw it the year after Durant left, there was this chorus of well now we get to see if Steph can really lead a team. If Steph can be the number one option because, you know, Steph's not 6 8, 6, 9, 6, 6. He's what he is. He's skinny. He's all this. And he just doesn't look the part, right? Like Nick, all the stuff you said about. He just runs around and guys chase him and all of a sudden people are getting dunks. That's just not how a number one option traditionally plays. He runs 29 pick and rolls per 100 possessions. Luka Dončić runs 75. That's what a number one option look like. And I think all of that added up to a collective. And I was guilty of it too because I was asking that same question. Let's see what Steph does now without KD. A collective underestimating of how great this guy is of how historically great this guy is. And that's what I mean by the normal rules of spacing, do not apply to this team. Quinn Snyder talks about advantage basketball. That's his sort of catch phrase for how the jazz play, which is action number one. Pass someone's got a head start with the ball, right? Someone's got a little territorial advantage. That guy's job is to open a greater advantage for the next guy and on and on and on until someone gets a wide open shot or a dunk or something. The warriors like walk into every possession with a huge spatial advantage already because everybody is looking at Steph Curry. You combine that with the fact that in Andre Iguodala and draymond green, they have two of the smartest basketball players who have ever lived. Two guys who do not need a huge amount of space or time to begin with to make the right past the right cut the right hand off the right read, whatever, it just normal rules of basketball do not apply to this team. They can thrive in tight spaces and they start every possession with this enormous advantage because curry is so good. And I think by the way, thank God Kevin Durant did not resign in Golden State. I know it's a catastrophe for the organization, but can you imagine if he was on this team now? This has given us a chance to sort of reappreciate how this guy is a historically great number one option, even if he does not look like a historically great number one option. That's what he is, and he's hammering that home. Zack, why do you think Steve Kerr looks so unbelievably happy and relaxed right now on the sidelines? Everybody keeps asking, well, what's the difference? What's the difference? He's got Steph Curry playing at an MVP level in I know we go through it every night, but this is, this is the narrative that's coming. I mean, if they keep winning, it steps playing like this. He's gonna win the MVP. There's nobody that's jumping in aside from maybe KD. Slater and I were talking about this at the game last night. But when you look at the way Steph plays and you have draymond in Kurt said many times, those two have their own language. They don't even have to say a word to each other. They can just kind of look and they know what to do. And then you add Andre back into the fold. It's almost unfair. By the way, clay's coming. And clay's coming. And clay is so ready to prove to everybody that he can still play. But I don't want to get this loss in the Steph portion of the conversation. Because Steph Curry is so unbelievably aware of what is said about him. What is said about his game, what is said about the warriors, he knows everything that's going on. And I think he took it as a personal challenge. These last couple years, of hearing everybody, saying, I don't know if Steph's that type of player. I don't know if Steph can be that type of guy that we saw without KD and they kind of went, okay, I'll show you guys. And guess what? He has. I think the curry's age later or their primes might be later than other people. I've talked to del curry about this. Dell curry was hitting three, still he was like 37. Seth curry right now seems to be like entering his prime, potentially. What's Seth? Now, 30, 31, and this is the best he's ever been. And with staff, to be honest, I mean, it's the way he's conditioned himself in the way he works in the off season. But I think there's a strong belief around Steph around the team, but really around the people that make stuff who he is training wise that this is like mid prime stuff. Even though he's 33 34 right now. And I mean, the evidence on the court would suggest he might be right. Slater I'll ask you this since you brought him up if they're winning, they're not gonna win at this level all season. But if they're winning, if they're number one in the west and they're just rolling, what do they do with wiseman? I think they're gonna start him in a smaller role. I think you mentioned like the non curry minutes still are not spectacular, offensively. I think that they are going to prioritize wiseman pool pick and rolls, try to separate wiseman from curry and draymond at the start to see what kind of James wiseman that they have. And I think the idea is when more minutes James wiseman come in, get settled, have them been simple actions that, again, are going to be more pick and rolls than the warriors are currently running. Maybe take some of the elites as many as maybe take some of Gary Payton the seconds minutes, which we need to get to a segment on things. If I have anything to do with it. Yes. I mean, but the idea is, look, they drafted a center, second overall, two drafts ago. He needs to take Kong Looney's job. By the way, Garret Gary Payton the second, I said I remember the podcast I did. It was in the bubble, but I wasn't in the bubble..

"Crunch when he's next to draymond green is still there, Andrew Wiggins floating in and out of interest in the game. It's still there. I think we saw it in their one loss. They blew a 19 point lead to Memphis and there were awkward moments where koan Looney's pump fake in three times and Memphis is really giving them trouble. So when they play better teams, I still do think that is their Achilles heel. But credit to the front office credit to the coaching staff for I think building a roster that maximizes Steph and care system. I think we should have a veterans draft combine. We should have like 30 year olds and 35 year olds come back and do the combine. 'cause I wanna see what Kavanaugh needs vertical is. I wanna see how many of the sticks he can hit when he jumps. I should do that. Are you trying to embarrass Kavanaugh? I mean, 7 offensive rebounds last night. They had 17 Kavanaugh and he's good and I was a Kavanaugh. And 12 offensive rebounds last night. Oh, then it was the other, I don't know. A lot of offensive rebounds. And just by the way, Carl Anthony towns embarrassing rebounder. Just an embarrassingly bad. Not a number one. Not a number one. All right, or settle down your get him out of that top this is what it really wants to talk about today. This Nick wants to talk about the wolves today. No, I don't want to talk about the wolves. I just was around that team so often. And I like Carl a lot personally, but he is not a number one star on a team that's going anywhere. I don't want to move to Timberwolves. You know what I don't want to talk about the Timberwolves I don't want to talk about Jaden McDaniels. The alleged centerpiece of their Ben Simmons trade according to some of the local media there can't make a freaking layup. How many free throws Jada McDaniels starting NBA player has the season? Guess how many free throw attempts Jayden mcdaniel says? The whole season. Four, three. Three. One time. He's two for three. Enough, that's it. No more Timberwolves talk. I don't even know what to tell. Kamalu is fine. The coaching staff has been telling me for years, he's good stopping a photo on the new side stopped. Just some other numbers before we dig back into it. There are 12th in free throws per shot attempt. 19th in turnover percentage, which for the warriors 19th is like first because they just throw the ball all over the gym. It's part of their idea. It's part of the joy. You can't have the joy without the turnovers. And there's 16th in offensive rebounding. None of those sound good, but like when you have the shooting and star power they have to just not be bad at any of those things, adds up to some very good stuff. Interestingly, you know, for all the yelling and screaming about from the fan base, criticizing Steve Kerr who's the most criticized three time championship coach ever probably by his own fanbase. From work curry pick and roll more curry pick and roll more curry pick and roll. Curry is running the second least pick and rolls per hundred possessions of his entire career this season. So they've leaned all the way free delta to your point. They've leaned all the way even further to this sort of like Steph runaround screen for people. Not equal opportunity, but just everyone passing cut and make reads kind of offense. And this is what you said before Nick, they've found a collection of guys who can all play this way. They're all baileys as a smart player when he does this slow motion pump and go. Auto Porter is shooting 49% from three. He's a smart player. JT a, I'm like JT a super fan number one, I wanted to play 35 minutes a game. These guys are all really smart. What they've done is essentially they've recruited like a college basketball program for pieces that fit the way they play. It's like the opposite of what they did last year with Kelly ubre just thinking that he would work and want to make her. That didn't work and beige more had his moments, but it didn't seem like the cleanest fit ever at times. But when you're watching them this year, Zach, it goes back to something that cur has said many times. Steph with the way he's playing, has created so much space for everybody else and that's been the case for a while when he's been healthy, but it's so much clearer now because he's hitting from all over the place. So even when he's taking these shots or he can make that extra pass, there are two or three guys that are running at him all the time. And the difference between last year's team and this year's team, at least a few weeks in is that they now have guys who can make those open shots or they have guys that can make that extra pass to get the next guy that open shot. Can I zoom out quick though because there's an interesting pivot point coming with this organization. You know, they did with their veteran minimum signings, which they've hit on all of them. They did re correct. But, you know, let's look at what they did in the draft with two valuable draft picks. Number two overall James weisman man. He needs pick and roll. He does not know how to play the read and react system. Donaldson come in a pretty similar. You know, he might even be a small ball big, he's an isolation player. He's not a natural, you know, he can make some nice passes out of the pick and roll, but he's certainly not doing pin down screens and all that. They could have gone lamellar ball. They could have gone, Davey on Mitchell, Franz Wagner, guys that fit that style more. They didn't. And for right now, I think properly are suppressing the lottery picks that need the developmental minutes. They're going to use Santa Cruz, but it's still coming with these two. And the fact that they don't play warrior style, Steve cursed out basketball, yet, you know, their minutes are going to be needed. Their development is going to be needed in this next year, two years, obviously people will bring up the trade idea, but that's not something ownership in the front office necessarily want to do. It's just interesting. Franz Wagner would have been an obnoxiously good fit with this style of play. And musi Moses musi moti Morty moves. We'll see. People like him, I've been optimistic what I've seen. And to your other point about the minimums, the downside of the one year minimum deal is you have no bird rights on these guys if they hit, you don't really have the means to resign them other than doing the Blake Griffin thing in Brooklyn where you just basically beg him to come back to a good setting a good a good setting.

"Mitten colon revenge of the mitten where we're gonna start off today by talking about the league best Golden State Warriors with our three man weave. I like this three man. We've got going from the athletic, Anthony slater, and from ESPN, mister Nick friedell, our guys in Oakland or San Francisco, Oakland. I'm sorry Oakland, San Francisco. How are you guys? Very good. I think the warriors have turned eeyore. I'm ready for max bell to call them the title favorites at this point. You should hear him on press road during some of these games. You will recall the two of you that are order of warriors optimism in our preseason three man weave was Zack Lowe in the number one spot saying that they had a final upside. Anthony slater in the number two spot saying they were good maybe and four or 5 bell basically being like trade Steph for draft picks now. It's over. It's over. So yes, allow me to ignore the fact that they've beaten the thunder, the pelicans and the kings of combined like 9 times and crow that the warriors are ten and one. Let me read you this specifics. Third in offense, first in defense, first in net rating by a country mile. They have played the third easiest schedule in the league, 9 or 8 home games, I think, and whatever the remainder is three away games, so things are about to get harder. Slater, I will start with you. You know what? I'm gonna start with you because you were Eyre. So you're what has surprised you most about the way the warriors have looked so far and tearing apart the NBA. Let me count the ways. Because I've sit up there with slater every night now. Zach and I'm like, they're gonna win tonight. And they're gonna win the next night, and they're just gonna keep winning for a while, but to me, it's the depth because there were a lot of questions about Andre Iguodala and Billy to an auto Porter and what Damien Lee could give them in Gary Payton the second is actually going to get rotation minutes and every single one of those moves to date has worked. They have flipped out a roster that had Kelly oubre junior, not knowing where to be on the floor, Ted bazemore, making bad fouls 35 feet away from the basket. James wiseman, who I'm sure we'll get to not knowing where to be himself. On either end of times. And all these guys know exactly how to play around Steph and draymond. And so to me, any conversation about the warriors has to start with the depth that has been shown to date. And we haven't even mentioned Jordan Poole who has been a little up and down, but definitely that offensive spark plug that they're going to need in the second half of the season when clay gets back. But that depth is there in slater, we talk about all the time when you have motivated draymond in the fold and playing the way he is right now. That is a tough, tough group to beat. Slater, let's zoom in on the offense because this team was a top 5 6 defense last year. Their number one in defense now, at the defense is real. Like draymond green might still be the best defensive player in the league. These guys know how to defend. I don't know if they're going to be number one, but they're a good defensive team. Their offense was sneakily bad last season. It is still very bad when Steph Curry sits. We'll see how that looks once mister Thompson comes back and all of that. But they're offense being third in the NBA is I think notable to me, given that no one thinks of kevon Looney as some sort of force even though he had a gazillion offensive rebounds last night against Minnesota. Draymond still got the backpack on. Still not going to shoot, still not going to be much of a scoring force. Wiggins has kind of been until last night when he exploded the spacing in some of these lineups and we're going to talk about why I think sort of traditional spacing analysis just does not apply to this team, but it's sometimes doesn't look great. But then you look at their shop profile, they're taking the third most threes in the league. The 8th most shots at the rim in the league. And the rim has always been the warrior's secret sauce, right? Everyone talks about the threes, but the threes unlocking the rim because the defense has to extend itself, has always been their secret sauce. They're always a good pace team and pay supplies to them, not just in transition, but they're a fast half court team and we can talk about the ways that helps them. But you're the lineup guru, you're the stats guru of the warriors beat. Is there some quirk of their offenses? There's some segment of their offense. You were like, wow, that has called me by surprise. Yeah, I think that what, you know, again, as you mentioned, we're going to mention the space, but there's a reason Gary Payton is averaging 18 points for 36 minutes right now. It's not because Gary Payton is like some dynamic offensive players. He's getting dunks all the time. You know, because it's just be alita and Porter are now spreading around Steph Curry. So that has juiced it up. I think pool needs to be mentioned within this. I mean, just a secondary creator next to stuff was so needed last year was not there when Brad wanamaker was basically having this role and now pulled pool at 31 the other night in a game that Steph Curry was basically sick and didn't play. He's had 26, 25. He needs to be more consistently better in the non staff minutes, but he's just provided something that they've desperately needed. Iguodala being back just ties everything together. A lot of these units. And I just think to be honest the coaching has been better. They prioritize veterans obviously on the floor more often. You've seen Jonathan mega for three rotation minutes all season. And they're playing draymond smaller more often. I still think some of the problems you mentioned like kevon Looney's.

Play against kobe like he has a great game against him. But there's one place in particular where he forces his until like tough fadeaway and he's got shame bad. He's got his hand like all the way in his face and everybody on tv was talking. About how great like this is the best you can ever guard kobe bryant. It was like talking point for a day and a half. And i remember sitting there watching that on. Tv and being terrified. Because i knew the next game. Kobe was going to be pissed. He was gonna come out and and be like nobody can guard me on the planet and we were the next team on that he had to see and nope other player ever made me feel like that specific kind of fear. Kobe i then shack and then then dirk because you need to be somebody who's beaten you when it was the most important shacking. Kobe beat us in the playoffs. Dirk peterson the playoffs. Like james harden was never that level for me because he never beat us in the playoffs. You know we'd like you need the fear of having your head cut off by the other guy.

He's trying to wrap a hate the the way that he wears his. I don't know his vests or whatever like i hated that he's giving himself a nickname. But this is like a defense mechanism.

And when you now so if you're asking me if i'm if i'm over i can tell you very confident that i i am one hundred percent over it but another thing i can tell you very competently is that there's a large population of san antonio mexicans who are not over at all. And the reason. I know this is because when cool why came back to san antonio that first time they play the raptors comes san antonio. He could have very easily sat the game out but he did it. He put his uniform on. He went out there and he played and he gave us all the chance to boo him and we just booed him like crazy. I was watching much like you at my apartment by myself my wife. Can you take the boys outta here. Like i just need to watch this game while the loan i ordered all my food as having a great time the spurs win the game demar. Has this great play at the end of the game. It was great. We're booing like crazy. And then afterward gregg popovich was basically like he gives a hug and then he's talking to the media afterwards and he's like all right. You know we do what we needed to do. This is over with is like the subtext of what he was saying. So in my head. I'm like well. Okay cool if papa says it's done it's done that's the leader and then i went on bills show and i said as much was like. Oh yeah we're over. In san antonio. And i never got so much hate. Mail 'em my life as i did after appearing on that thing so are we over it. Some of us are a bunch of us. Aren't and i think it's just gonna be like that forever. Probably who's the or do you still watch every spurs game or as many as you can i watch a bunch of spurs games yes. I don't think every thing everyone. But more than i miss. Who's the who in fi in four years. Who's the best player. Among the current san antonio spurs dijana has my heart. He has my heart because the reason he has my heart. is we played. We played houston in the playoffs without. Tony and patrick beverley was there when he was on. The rockets and i went to the game. I was living in houston at the time. So every year the spurs would go to houston twice a year and i would take my son's we would go watch the games and the playoff game so we go to watch and patrick beverley knows this is like dijon taste first time at this sort of situation. And he's all over them just as soon as the game starts he gets a couple of steals on. He's like very clearly bullying him and that moment happens. I think every player who gets into the playoffs at some point like you're supposed to be the guy and then you run up against a guy who's not afraid of you and now how are you gonna react so we had that moment. And they're at the game watching it and i'm like okay. Let's see what dante does. And he didn't back down. He wasn't afraid he was one of the few players when we played golden state without kawhi that was like putting his nose in there. You know what i'm saying. And so ever. Since then i have just been like i fully believe in dijon say. I'm just waiting for the next step to happen. But that's my ira. They're over under one point. Five all star appearances. Do you bet the over for any current san antonio spur for their career for the career..

"A luxury to build your team with different sorts of players because of the shooting that those who guys give you not only that they get their shots so many of them of movement and screening action side to side action. No team ever ever been better equipped to swallow a big guy who can't and this is what soon as draymond green would be in the situation at big guy who can't or won't shoot than these warriors because if you ignore it if dream onto screening clay on one side and assuming disguises clogging laying on the other side then steph just runs off simmons either on a hand off screen and he's wide open like this is what they were doing for years and years and years and i just think yes. There would be hiccups. Yesterday would be overlap but when you combine the passing i mean dream on and simmons are two of the fifteen best hazards in the nba at minimum. I don't know. I mean at worst into of the five best defenders in the nba. Something like that. Would you combine all of that. As long as the fifth peace can shoot. I think that they would overcome that skill. Overlap between the side to side movement. How stephan klay play how they shoot the degree to which both raymond and simmons are great reading and react players after setting screens and keeping the ball moving. I'm more. i'm optimistic. That it could work. And i think i think there's an upside which it works really really well into super fun watch. I don't know if they hit that upside. But i'm not. I'm certainly far from the people who just see the skill similarities and dismiss it out of hand. Do you think you could play them both at the end of games together drain minded sims. I do i do again. It's a fifth guy can shoot. I do and obviously defensively you. Could they be hard as hell to play against a into scheme against the score against You know i think there. There's there's a world where suddenly they're deep in west finals. It gets a bad matchup in. They're playing hot potato. And and we're all right This didn't work but at the same time like ibm. I would favor them to at least get to the west finals with this scenario. Like everyone's always like well. What happens with simmons doesn't shoot in the west finals and my thing would be what if you never get to the west files like you gotta get there before these problems can hurt you. Won't it's like the the the argument. Why the kings. I think the king should trade for maybe even suave fox for him. You know pe- some people might disagree with me but it's like you know the kids haven't been to the playoffs fifteen years if ben simmons just get you play even if he has a hiccup in the playoffs hey sacramento you're in the playoffs and i think there's a little of that with the warriors of like you know maybe in the nba finals ben. Simmons has a moment that that makes you lose the final. You're not getting there. I don't think but this current rosser will see quick hitters. Thirty seconds apiece for dell. Start with you reasonable optimistic. Finish for the warriors assuming relative good health for klay thompson. When he comes back reasonable optimistic season outcome four or five seed win a first round and get knocked out in the second anthony. You said reasonable optimism. Remember this is the optimus. I do think they're ceiling in the regular season because of the lack of clay and the choppiness of it will be four five six as you said but then a very dangerous four or five six seat in the west. That i do think is down so i think you know west finals even even a danger to to get to the finals of clay really Shows i. I'm not picking it at all but you're like by the time april. We're going to edit this out you know. I think phoenix is being underrated. That might be picking west but are we doing the pessimistic side. Are we doing the your side. We should probably with because i am a pessimist. Let's end with pessimism. Okay you can go first. Give me the let's pessimistic. Scenario klay comes. I guess this includes klay comes back. He's just seventy percent clay j. ready.

"To read you some numbers nick and you tell me which of these is is most likely to change this season when you look at their offense which again ranked twentieth and even if they were like soaring toward into there was like thirteen fourteen fifteen. They shot the ball. Well they shot a ton of threes. They got to the rim a fair bit. Then you look at the other parts of offense for the season. They were twentieth in free. Throw rate so. A non of free throws twenty four thin turnover rate. Now that's a warriors thing. We're just turn the ball over left behind the back passes with championship on the line along the silent. That's just how we are. We don't get the good stuff without the little circus okay. So maybe that's another change and thirtieth in offensive rebounding. They were also twenty. What were they twenty-second in defense rebounding. They were the maybe the worst rebounding team the league take the offense rebounding free throws turnovers. What of that. Which of those if any is most changeable for them because if they can just get better at one of those things that's like a couple of places in the offensive rankings. A couple of points. You scrounge out. When you're just dying to get some offense and it helps you went for delo. Start with you. What can we. What can we expect. I'll take the rebounding only because this ties directly back into wiseman and what kind of men that we may or may not see and part of the reason that i am not as optimistic is because i watched wise men in that rookie year when he was on the floor and the talent is there. I mean he's still twenty years old. He's got talent Get up and down the floor and lengthen and we saw the other day and he's noticeably bigger. It looks like he's he's been in the weight room and he's put on a couple pounds he just does not know where to be. And i cannot tell you how many times last year were sitting in there and were watching him not nowhere to go Rotationally defensively and he gets pulled out of the game and his shoulders slump. That he's walking back to the bench in there was a frustration. You could tell. When when steve looking over his assistance like A it just hasn't clicked in so if you're buying that the warriors can be better and in this case you're buying that the rebound numbers can be a little bit better and everything clicked in what you really buying. On top of slater sworn about cool is wise. Men can take that leap from a basketball q. Standpoint in learning the nba. Game in. so. I think it is within him. I just not sure for him this year again with no training camp and again having to kind of learn from the side what we can expect from him especially in those first few months when he's back slander. I don't think they're going to be a good rebound team at all. Because i think they're gonna play drawn center most of the time in. Jt is going to be out there. And they're gonna be trying to hold off seven footers six five guys essentially on the front line and i think they're okay with being a bad rebounding team You know you must have the turnover rate. i think. Part of their their turnover issues last year. Or you know nick mission. Wiser not nowhere to be. Kelly oubre rated nowhere to be a lot of their offense players out. There were running into each other. There was this. There was such You know like record scratches on offense at times and i am. I just think maybe because there's just kind of higher i q players within curse system That'll be out there. Making it up. I just think maybe maybe you sharpen up there. I think they're gonna shoot better. You know they they You know added the elite supporter And obviously klay at some point is going to come back have you. Have you guys been able to see any practice yet a little bit. You know they let us in but you know what it is. It's mostly like you know individual work like how to portland bay leads to like everyone's really excited about them. 'cause their names right like and i keep saying idle porter's played like basically no games in two years a very small amount of games. He was out of shape last year like he was the he might have been the most obviously out of shape player in the nba. Unless you're like everybody saw everybody texted about everybody talked about it. Invades couldn't crack the rotation for like like after a decent year with the kings fell out of favour. There could crack rotation and miami. Like what's the initial buzz about which of those guys if either are like ready to play eighteen minutes on opening night. We'll porter made a comment at media. Day that he'd been back for a month and all he'd been doing is working with like the nutrition and training staff on getting his body right which which says two things. They've identified it obviously they should have But also that like a month ago he still had a long way to go We'll see. Apparently you know from what i've heard his corner threes really good. He's been shooting it really well. He's a really good. Shooter is a really good catch and shoot guy which you know. That doesn't necessarily you don't have to be in great shape to shoot corner three. You have to be in great shape to defend in their style that they wanted to fend. So we'll see on him. I mean he's one of the guys. I'm watching. I'd say in the preseason be alita. I'd say the argument for the elites that maybe have a better chance to crack the the warriors rotation is the warriors do not have the conditioning requirements. That the miami heat do. And i and i believe a lot of the reason. Bielema fell out of favor in miami's because he was not miami heat ready and i just you know. We'll see how it works. I kinda think he's a specialist to be honest. I i don't know that he's gonna ton of minutes he will. It will be the first time in a while during montana. Five next to him. That could shoot it which will be good. I mean that fits. But i'm kind of with you. I i thought those signings were bit overrated. The best description i heard on porter was. This is a lot of ticket. You roll the dice. And you hope that he can rehabilitate his own game in. He can get into that shape that they're going to need to be in. It's worth a risk when he's on a vet minimum but we were sitting next to each other's back in that press conference and we saw porter come in and we're like okay. It looks like he's in shape that will how that translates and what that means. We'll see but it was noticeable given what everybody saw last season. Hey by the way slater. I bet you've seen the stat for know you're always digging around the lineup numbers curry and pool together. You know the number seventeen net rating something like that like what is it. Eighteen plus eighteen possessions plus ninety nine points in two hundred twenty one minutes. I looked at it was like i got a check that again. That's a that's a big number by the way they still have rosser spot open..

"There's going to be some push pull particularly when weisman's fully healthy to integrate coming. Get him some minutes moody. Can he be a rotation player. Wiseman you know. Try to fit him back in and play some big minutes with wiseman because they want to see him develop because their vision is those guys will eventually take the mantle and become the next version of this franchise. So this idea that they're just gonna bench those guys at the end and just play the style that they want like. There's a little bit more of a tug and war organizationally that is going to linger over this season than i think we might see in the first couple of weeks while wiseman still rehabbing. Yeah i think wiseman will play. But i also think they're going to start looney. They're gonna you wrote about this yesterday. They're gonna play draymond at center a lot and so he kind of fits in is the bridge between looney and the dream center lennon's that could be four minutes in the second quarter four minutes late third early fourth quarter whatever. It doesn't have to be a lot of minutes. I am curious Anthony like one of the big things to watch with. This always is a particularly before klay comes back is how are they going to survive. When curry rests and and is wiseman going to be a part of those lineups or are they gonna go small for those periods of on center. How do you see them handling that. Because they were good with curry on the floor last season as you well know. Their offense went to crap without him and they couldn't score any points. I would say that is reliant. On maybe the most underrated factor of the season for them which is jordan pool the and their belief that jordan pool is going to be really good and he might have to start by the way. Well at least part of the. I think he and damian lee one of those guys is gonna start correct. Yeah incur labeled going into camp jordan pool. That's his gut feeling that he's gonna end up starring jordan pool. I think he's ready to play. Jordan poll thirty minutes and i believe the poll could be like a seventeen point per game score on like relatively good efficiency and is getting better defensively. Because he's getting stronger and just you know there's a path to him. You know this might sound way too optimistic and you know yes. Get engaged tigger gear. Let's go to sixty five wins. Let's go like there's a path to like a cj mccollum level off. It's a player eventually career. Oh my gosh that's like you know it's like it's like not all star but you know the player and like you know. We saw what he did down the stretch. I mean they went six and zero on that home. Stand down the stretch and then obviously had those games. Those were like eight high level games including wins over the jazz and suns where he scored twenty off the bench and both those games. He had a thirty eight point game. He was just legitimately good the last part of the season and good in basically playoff atmospheres. I mean when they played in staple center in the playoff game. They've likened that to like a west finals game endured pool was like good and ready in like confident in that moment in in that earns kershaw's that earned draymond green and steph curry stress. And i think the belief is that could survive better the pool. Minutes becau- are in the non-communist because it will be pool out there maybe eventually wiseman as a pick and roll partner and they better simplify james weisman's role this season to go out there round pick and rolls and then you know maybe klay be out there eventually and suddenly it's like a pool. Clay james wiseman trio. If you've ever had to look for a job you know that it's no picnic. You start stress eating. Your eyes burned from staring at job.

"Or i'm the third cedar that fits theater the four-seat Fidel you also. We were talking yesterday. You also remark gun the nature of wiggins media session the other day on on media day in what you thought it indicated about his his sort of digesting the news getting outright like how the news of his vaccination status got out. Can you elaborate on that a bit that we were sitting there in. You've got bob. Myers and steve kerr and they come up for. The outwardly are very confident. Hey when push comes to shove our whole team is going to be out there. Which obviously includes andrew wiggins well few go by and wigan starts his press conference by saying i wanna keep this private. I wanna keep this private and as as the minutes go by. I'm with slater. I mean i've covered wiggins a little more in minnesota in. I've never really seen him get upset about anything yet. Then you're a veteran of injury. Wiggins from your days on the bulls suck beat like that was a regular stomping ground for you that was like that his slash bowl suck all in one and what a time time that was but we're sitting there and that's as aggravated as i have ever seen him. That's right is aggravated. As i've ever seen him on or off the floor about anything in you could tell not only was he starting to get pissed off at the line of questioning by reporters which i'd never seen what he was really pissed off about and slater and i talked about it as soon as we out of the press. Conference room was the fact that he was pissed at the organization. He was really upset that the information had gotten out and he made reference to it a couple of times and look. I don't wanna talk about it now. But i'm sure you guys will find out what i have to say in a few hours and for an organization that prides itself on being so pro player and always protecting its players and always this opportunity to be the beacon in the nba of of being anything that the players could want for wiggins of all people to come down as hard as he did. I think that's where the fracture was in in continues to be in on top of all of that as you said i mean the key here is that the warriors needed and i say this is somebody that didn't think wiggins was going to perform that much better in golden state it as we had seen in minnesota but he really played well last year he really fit in nicely into the locker room and he's a guy with the uncertainty around klay that they need to fill the role that he was in and play all those minutes. So there are a lot of different dynamics air but The biggest takeaway i know for both of us was that he was really upset at the fact that he had to defend himself in that manner because he never expected his decision to get out to that point. I don't want to spend too much time on this because again. I'm assuming it gets resolved but slater. You did mention like this. Today may not be the deadline. Seventh may be more of the quote unquote Belk location day. I think you called it but you mentioned like it's not just can i do it in time to play home game number one. It's sort of like. Can i do it in time to indicate to everyone else that i want to be part of the team and i understand that. This is a very complicated issue for some people wasn't a complicated issue for me. It's been a complicated issue for anyone of my family. I went and got accented on the first possible. I took the whole thing. Prancer wiggins it's different it's it's a complicated issue. Whatever do you sense. Anthony like some inside the organization. I guess yeah. I was going to say. Impatience might be strong impatience with like. Hey man like we finish last year. Fifteen and five hundred twenty games. Claes comeback steph proof distilling. Mvp dream on is what did he finish.

And we're doing a three man. We've with two of the very best in the business. Our own nick. Free del covering the warriors also owner of the best laugh since the million dollar man ted db and from the athletic a guy who makes us all smarter with his warriors coverage. Mr anthony slater anthony welcome to the low post our you. I'm good i'm good. I believe the next seven days are will andrew wiggins. Get the shot. Day that good i can we can. We can just keep talking about this. I love talking about cova. Mr fidel how are you. It is great to be with you. Buddy it especially good to be with my mid slater because this is like the busters cheese steak edition of the low post podcast when slater finish working a game. Sometimes he doesn't wanna to drive back. We go to busters cheese steaks after the game. Get some cheese steaks fries and discuss what we have just witnessed so feel like we're bringing it to the people which is a good thing we have plenty of warriors. Conversations does not usually allowed to do it being recorded publicly. so let's start with wiggins so my understanding is this regulation. Has san francisco takes effect on october thirteenth. Which is two weeks from yesterday. I think i think if wiggins gets the johnson and johnson shot again welcomed his amateur epidemiology our if he gets the johnson and johnson is shot. There's like a two week lag time between that and when you can do stuff so they view the next few days today whatever as as sort of like go time slater. So you're telling me it's not just like today's not like a hard deadline. This can keep going. My assumption has been all of these guys when they see the economic ramifications are going to do this. The warriors seem to still think wiggins is going to do it. Slater take us through the next seven days in like. Do you hear that same optimism. Well to me like october. Seventh is a little bit of like the declaration date because their home opener is the twenty first. And you know you've talked about the joshua. Johnson shot which is the one that they have given to most of their players and coaches And seven to the fourteenth is when he would be eligible so he's got kind of like a week to i guess like declare if he wants to play or not because i know it would only missing one game but at that point. You're just kinda declaring. Are you part of the season or are you not and yeah i. I'm with you. That i've generally sense optimism but optimism to the point that they were giving him the chance to try to go through this like religious exemption process once the city declined. It in the league declined. Their thought was okay now. He's pretty much probably going to have to get it. Because of what you said. Financial ramifications locker room dynamics but then he went into media day after already getting it denied and kind of as stern as i've ever seen andrew wiggins in a press conference so i think not only do that surprise a little of us in the media i think behind the scenes. There were two things there was like. Wow that was andrew wiggins kind of had a little bit of a backbone with it. That's good to see from him but at the same time like is is are small forward going to be here this season. Well all right. I'm going to you know to me. Like set aside the public health discussion. Which is obviously the most important discussion. This is a big basketball deal for the warriors because like andrew wiggins. Hey andrew wiggins whatever you think of angie against in his contract because these he's to entering two separate entities at this point he's a human being and he's a contract for purposes of discussing him. The guy is a good. nba player..

More shoe company factory in braintree massachusetts. The men were carrying two large steel boxes full of cash when they were approached by two men and shot dead in the street. The two men took the boxes of cash containing over fifteen thousand dollars and fled in a waiting car to make very long story short. The police suspected italian anarchist based on previous similar crimes. When running up a lead on the getaway car they found connections with people who had weapons that mashed the ones used in the crime. This led them to sako and vans. eddie when asked about guns. They said they never owned any yet. They were carrying firearms on their person at the time they were placed into custody and charged with murder on may fifth and the trial began june. Twenty second i'm vastly over simplifying the case at this point and how they were arrested but suffice to say they were arrested and this is where the real story starts. The trial was a mess on many different levels. The prosecution relied on ethnic differences between the italian defendants and the jurors. There were conflicting testimonies. The witnesses claimed that they saw different things and they had different stories for each defendant. There was conflicting ballistics testimony. The defendants politics were also brought into the trial to prejudice the jury against them. It was also brought forward that both men went to mexico. Nineteen seventeen to escape the draft for world war one. A defense committee was founded soon after their arrests. But they didn't really help during the trial vans eddie. At one point claim that their defense was so bad that they might as well have been working for the prosecutor's on september fourteenth. The jury took only three hours to find both men. Guilty of murder after the indictment. It's believed that the galliani organization began a bombing campaign in retribution in addition to a series of mail bombs sent to us embassies around the world. They were also responsible for the wall. Street bombing of september sixteenth. That bomb killed forty people and injured one hundred and forty three. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in american history up until that point at the same time of the trial. Most people in the country still hadn't heard of soko and vans eddie. The trial itself was really only reported on boston. It was only after the trial when the reports of how these men were treated were made public that the men became a cause celebre.

So the cowboys have room for the franchise tag at the very least so you look at that quake matt that adam schefter was kind enough to do for you. That is fifteen point. Five million dollars that the dallas cowboys suddenly have because they've got this long term deal with that prescott. This is something that we've been saying for two years now. If you do this you can. You can kick this down the road. You can prorate it you can extended you can whatever term you want to put on it. You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up

"To mike slater food so it's a real quick are quebecer so when you hear that jordan peterson naked can you wrap your head around it because i need to hear it a couple of times i was totally in that when i hear jordan peterson i need to hear it i need to listen to her a couple times that clip makes sense that clip made sense to me only because i know something about the bible right and so he otherwise if he's talking about basically anything that i have no idea carl young said he'll he'll start talking about psychology and so he he speaks in a way that kind of assumes you're at a certain level very good okay lost a lot of the time every once in a while if he's talking about certain term in psychology i'll have to stop look it up to really understand what he's saying okay and even then it's only like i'm not a psychologist but did but that clip dot com okay well this one is a lot easier so again he's at liberty university at the complication christian school and spoke for like an hour and a half or so and the question last question was how can we pray for you and i think this is the perfect answer to that question there's lots of things about your life that you know aren't right ironically perhaps this is something that could be transformed into a prayer is that the the that mistakes that i let me give you one quick point background about twenty minutes into the convocation those queuing it at a man came up to the microphone a student at immediately broke down sobbing he said my name is david i need help i need help i just wanted to meet you i'm on well i wanna be well and he's broke die fell on the ground started crying security guards show up he's on his knees the camera cuts away but you can hear it all and one of the pastors jumps off the stage and comes down and brace for him it was twenty minutes into the q._n._a. so the entire next hour this one moment hung over it all and then the guy's name was david david the person and david the metaphor for people was brought up throughout the entire next hour and i think it really affected jordan peterson because he's become this really influential voice on youtube and across the country and it's too much it's too much for one man and this huge burden is put on them that's way too much for a person to have and i think he feels the weight of that so i think that's the root of this answer that he gives and it's why he's holding back tears when he says so sorry can we start over thirty perhaps this is something that could be transformed into a prayer is that the the mistakes that i am inevitably going to make well i'm pursuing that i don't pay an undue price for the mistakes that i am inevitably according to make pursue what i'm pursuing that's my fervent hope and it has been since all of this is broken around me that i would be careful enough in my speech and that's the logos that i would be careful enough in my speech so that i would stay on the right track on the straight and narrow path and and fulfil whatever obligations are my privilege to fulfil and what i hope from the people that are supporting me is that if they wish to pray for me is that i'm careful enough i remain careful enough and fortunate enough so that my inevitable don't interfere to catastrophically with whatever good i might be able to do so perfect perfect request an answer to that question that is maximum genuine numberless the recognition that i'm not perfect i'm going to make mistakes and i hope they don't take me out so bad that i can't move on to fulfil my mission and purpose that's unbelievable because history is riddled with people who have righteous missions yet are taken out and most of the time most of the time as a consequence of their own behavior but even sometimes just an unjust ways to no fault of their own just by bus or whatever right most of the time as a consequence of their own decisions but i have no idea why there's examples popping in my brain this is a bad example but let me just say it so get out of my brain and other examples will come but you know with the joe biden accusations are coming out oh the new york times that's such a good headline about it i'll find in the next time air can you remind me to for the new york times story about joe biden they had a great euphemism for joe biden inappropriately touching with perfect okay i'll find a here anyway so joe biden all these accusations coming up and with the governor of virginia and the lieutenant governor still in office remember the lieutenant governor was accused of rape but all that went away the governor all the people in virginia are still in power all throughout all of this i think of al franken franken the comedian senator of minnesota remember the whole thing like a year ago he was on a u._s._o. tour years before that he was on a u._s._o. tour and a woman was sleeping on the plane and he came up to her when she was sleeping and pretended to grab her breasts and someone took a picture of it and it was finally revealed and and he resigned a couple of weeks later after trying to let it pass over i disagree with al franken literally every single thing ever and he probably won the election all different story so to go out prematurely maybe some poetic justice for him but let's say that al franken was on a righteous mission for good at truth let's just let's a huge assumption here but let's say he was on a true righteous mission for good and truth put he did one stupid thing that's it it's over dover mission over you could be someone on a true wonderful mazing bureau powerful position a president of influence and importance and you're doing amazing and then you one stupid thing and it's gone and that's life and i don't want that to be you don't want a stupid mistake to be your undoing.
