Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 04
"Turnaround. Flip them for profit moving onto the next guy who ran five picks later in the nineteenth pick of the guy that i am super high on. Its the army brown from north carolina. Going to the washington football team and let me tell you why i like damn brown. The rebound has six one. One hundred eighty nine pounds of has pretty ideal size for receiver but and north carolina. he had to terrific seasons. He's past two seasons in twenty twenty. He had fifty five catches for one thousand ninety nine yards and the twenty nine thousand nine hundred fifty one catches for one thousand three hundred four forty nine yards and oh by the way throughout. He had twelve touchdowns in his sophomore year in towns in his junior. This is pretty impressive. Because i'm not sure if the North carolina has had great quarterback play particularly either. It is not. I'm not super familiar with a north carolina. The program but how how how should be the number one pick probably next year so they. They've had a pretty good quarterback he's other classmate that's right. I did hear about how so okay. They did have how but anyway. A guy putting up static this two years as Sophomore and junior. And he's doing this by the way with fifty one and fifth in fifty five receptions so it's not like he's getting a ton of targets he's maximizing opportunities putting up staff that are up there with with the top of the top and so this is a guy that You could argue count. Wise in what he's produced typically makes him atop success in receiver in this class. But oh by the way. He's fallen into the third round. Now the draft and he's actually ending up in a landing spot better than the guys that went before him because the washington football team they have terry maclaurin but do they have a number two receiver. No the don't cam. Sims is not going to cut it. Let's let's be real here for second. Kempson is not going to cut this guy who's going to step in right away and be the number two receiver so if anything. I can see this guy having a top five season as far as rookie receivers this this upcoming season because there is such an immediate chance for brown shine. I loved the town. And i love the situation. So both those things matchup for me and ryan patrick in their offense while just knowing ryan fitzpatrick. He's a guy who likes to sling the ball He's not free for big throws and yami brown is a guy that could be a target while so this is an the situation to really like especially in the strip term but i think his talent overall what is what will help him. Secure the number two role for washington in the long term. You did forget. Courtesy meals with their in the offseason. Curtis samuel okay. yes courtesy. You might be the number two receiver. But i'm not. I'm not saying that kurdistan wills a lot in geometry breath. If i think those are two big comparable players and the down brown can still end up. Overtaken curtis samuel for the number two role because it's not like samuels established in washington. Anyway he's gonna they're gonna walk on equal playing fields if anything. Yeah to co plank. Roads honestly yeah. So i mean i you know how high was on diane. Be brian i think i was probably than anybody else in the industry pre-draft in you know the fact that he didn't get a super high draft capital. I think a lot of people would just never really caught up to where the hype was going was headed towards So now he kinda ended up back back to where he's at. I know you said you saw them. You know at the beginning of the third round in. I'm in motion address. At pretty much where i got him every draft. You know there was two guys. I walked away with almost in every draft i. It was karen's marshall because if he was following the second taking them and diani bryant third. I was taking him no matter what and wasn't trained. Now those picks and i wasn't moving up or down at sticking with it. So i ended up with jami round maybe beating my number one player at of all my dynasty leaks. So you know. I'm i'm really high. I think there's a lot of potential to proprietor curse. Amiel i do think we'll we'll out touch him for sure year. One you know. But terry mccaren is another guy you know. He did not have first round draft capital as a rookie. So he's only got a couple of years left before they have to really choose on renewing his contract whether they wanna pay him if they view him to be a. You know an elite receiver that they wanna pay top ten top twenty money. They might just let him walk. You know and if that's the case the brown is almost a cologne terry records. You know he. He averaged over twenty yards a catch with a lot of volume in college. Which is one of. it's got to be one. The highest of abo scouted and You know the way he wins is he. Wins deep wins. He's a burner he gets out feel and i think there's actually a lot of room for him to grow because didn't see him run a really complex route tree and north carolina. They didn't ask them to you. Know and as kirsten says you know why why would the team tell him to do something different and teach them other rouse when when he consistently wins for twenty on the field every time you know. They don't need them to do that but an nfl. He probably has higher upside now because he can still learn. The trees like we saw with decay metcalf in some other like a jay brown. You know the same knock on metcalf was he. He only ran Slants down the in the Mississippi offense coming out of college and look how that turned out you know now. He's one of the better route runners in the entire league to mix with the athletes athletic ability. So i really liked the army brown. And i think that You know if you're getting him in the late second and early dirty of your rookie drafts. I think you're you're walking away with one of their players in the draft. One of the guys that we both really like. You can expect for geometry brown to produce put up some big
Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 10
"Okay. This next receiver is a guy that you and i are. differ a lot on and with twenty fifth pick of the second round. The la rams selected to at well from louisville. Receive our end. I get their concerns. Ideal disguise five nine hundred fifty five hundred sixty pounds. People are questioning whether he's gonna be physical enough in the nfl. however this is a player. The i compare to markey's brown. I think that in order to be successful. He's going to have to gain a little bit more weight. But i think that to out will be able to develop especially with the la rams who don't need in the -sarily to be great outta the gecko. But i think that the upside for two atwal is especially there especially if he's going to have the matthew stafford throwing the ball and so it was back to murky brown when he was in college him and he had similar stats. Which is why. I'm bringing up the comparison the first place in his junior. He had seventy five receptions for one thousand three hundred eighteen yards in ten touchdowns. Now let me bring up to two atwal stats from his sophomore season. And they were very similar which end so to atwell in his sophomore year he had sixty nine sevens for one thousand two hundred seventy two yards and eleven receiving touchdowns and so these two guys. Besides the fact marquees brown ways a little bit more to travel or comparable. And if you're an you're seeing now to to out while falling to the fourth maybe even fifth out of your dynasty da and for me. I think that's a little bit ridiculous. Because for a guy that had a similar career to marquees brat and his cod season and similar upset that he should be considered a third round prospect for you and your dynasty rookie draft. And i'd say right now. Marcus brand is probably a second round. Pick but i think he could be worth a second or the round pick and this guy. Who's extremely fast as well. I think he's going to create separations and he's not just the speedster. He's not just the speedster he he gets receptionist as well on anyone who puts up almost thirteen hundred receiving yards in college. Season is a guy that is a good all amount of receiver as well. So don't just think of him as a speedster guy gonna occasionally break open deep here and there so yeah. I'm a big fan of to at wall of the i know Oh and one one last thing. He was picked in the second round so clearly. The rams do have a plan for two while. They're not just investing a second round pick in a receiver that they don't see being a great receiver in the long term and this by the way was the rams first pick all draft. If i'm correct so they might have even viewed him as a late first round pick. We don't know. But the fact that they spent their first round pick onto to By having good receivers shows you how much demands believe into Anyways kyle the floor is yours as to why you don't believe in to atwell. Well it says so much that i don't believe in two two at well. It's the fact. That so i am from louisville in. I watched a lot of this kid. He is a very good receiver. I agree with you. He's not just a burner. he is a good polish receiver and a lot of facets of football but my biggest problem is literally is just. This is and the fact that he's completely buried on the depth chart. I don't see any Any possibility of him getting in and becoming a number one receiver on that team like anytime. Soon robert woods. Anne cooper kupp. Both resigned extensions For last year So you already got those positions locked up now. You lose josh rhinos. But they already spent high draft capital on jefferson. Dan jefferson last year. So that position was already and then they spent another was a third or early fourth round. Pick onto harris harris could be used as a tight end. I think a lot of people saying he's going to be a tight end he he. They say he's listed as a tight end but he also weighs about twenty so if anything he's going to be like a a move titan. I don't see him being like inland blocker. But you already have tyler higby as well. You know it's just it's just a really crowded And you also have to sean jackson that they stopped they brought in you know so i. I'm just not sold that there's any opportunity for at least in the first year to now you like you said maybe a if you invest in this guy at the late third fourth round Me personally i'd rather just take dark throws on running backs. At this point you know even a third. The guys are projected to be thirds shrink or shrink. You know a rash of injuries and all of a sudden guys are going to get plight. Be starters and they're going to be valuable. You can train them. You know it would take a stream lee amount of circumstances for for you to for him to get on the plainfield him to productive enough for another team to to trade for him. It's just wide receivers just a position that you know if you don't put up stats people don't really wanna trade for him at all. I mean it's as simple as that you know and i know he has draft capital That's about the only thing. I think he has known. Form at one hundred fifty five pounds. I just don't know if it's worth the headache you know. But then again it only takes one person to trade and if you're only drafting him with the mindset of trading him than you're probably not gonna draft to tell to till In the first place. And if i don't know if it necessarily applies to atwells value the fact that the community hates him. Because there's going to be at least one guy and if you put up the stats. People are going to be willing to trade for him. So i i get that point but at the same time. I don't know if that necessarily applies to At wellness fair. Knock about the onto to at atwill. Because it's not actually something that to two at walt dead. It's more of the perception that people have about two. But it's it's what he didn't do. He didn't gain the weight which i think he will in the way he's still what in nineteen twenty years old. I think he's still
How Writer Lesl Honor Knows Poetry Changes Lives

I could be a writer writers. I love Invented just kind of unfolded. When i got to college And there were so many people that were so supportive of my writing and poetry and just teaching me how to be in that space En- just happened to what i wanted to say authentically in kind of tune out. What a lot of the other influences are other writers. I think growing up in the nineties. I wanted to talk about identity a lot. I mean it wasn't until the late nineties until we even had something in the census that allowed you to be biracial. So i would always get the questions what are you. What are you You know just very rude. Comments often feeling not enough of one of the other affiliate black enough not mexican enough. So i wrote about my identity and how i felt. Your dad is black. His new orleans. Your mom born in mexico immigrated here when she was fifteen had it those cultures. How were they playing out at home. It's lovely. I love my kids. Identify appalachian in that that even have that term to identify with my oldest daughter who is brown and we talk about how we are mirror images of each other's experience where i fought a lot to inform people of my identity as a black woman. She does the opposite to inform people of dot and so we talk about that a lot and she really pushes me to see how the world sees me had well. She's her an how they see her as black. I and how they typically see as the enough i in. What does that mean about how we move in spaces. It's a salvatori household. I think i get that. From both of my cultures.

Though when you were growing up oh my pearson talk about race. It was not a forward conversation properly until the rodney king riots. Now sophomore in high school and my father at the time was working for the lapd and so we. We did not have a conversation. The way i have with my kids about race ethnicity identity how the world sees you ought to be prepared for and then maybe around my sophomore year in high school right before the rise of doing a lot of reading and read the biography malcolm x. I say that radicalized much split on my activism button that has never been turned off since then it's pretty much in succession than the riots happened. An stuff was bubbling in. La before ride became there was a lot of tension between black and korean communities in los angeles and stuff. It wasn't something that happened out of nowhere. It it definitely was arise that shifted allots. That shifted a conversation. I never knew. My dad was locked in his apartment during the watts riots. We had never had that conversation before.
Targeting New Builds to Get Around the W-2 Requirements for House Hacking with Andres Bustamante
"Andreas brother. Welcome to the real estate ricky. Showman excited to have you on. Thank you so much for giving the opportunity. I appreciate it. I'm going to dive into your store in a bit here but before we do share with us a little bit about you got you in a real estate. And what brought you here today to chat with this. Of course so right now. Twenty four years old on from el paso texas. And i started in austin when i was nineteen. I got into the university of texas at austin. And tell you the truth. I was an undeclared business major. But i thought i wanted to do supply chain. I had heard one of my friends talking about supply chain. And i was like dude. This school saw apply for that got supply. Gene was really what i wanted to do at the senior freshman year. I got my real estate license. Just out of luck. I initially wanted to be a lifeguard. And i did not my certificate so i said you know what. Let's just do real estate because a friend told me they thought i'd be good at it so freshman year sophomore year. I did a lot of leasing. And i met a lot of people junior and senior year. That's really picked up. And with leasing i was able to become financially independent from my parents was able to pay my housing expenses and my college tuition which was amazing so fast forward i graduated with a degree in international business and real estate and the summer of two thousand nineteen was really like a. What am i going to be doing. Am i going to be doing fulltime real estate. In which is commission based or am i going to do commercial real estate. Which was what i initially wanted to do. Which is an eight to five job. So i read a lot. I listened to your pocket. That's very much started. Summer of two thousand nineteen and i decided to trust my gut and do three months four months of fulltime real estate. So i go back to austin in november. I need the of course. Hope through bigger pockets. He had an episode at the end of that. Diego mentioned season austin. And i was like wow i should just reach out so i give him a cold call. We meet up. And eventually i get on his team in january of twenty twenty and fast forward to now first year of real estate sales. I've done fifteen closings. I have fifteen hundred contracts that are going to close year and one house hacked. I currently live in another house under contract that closes in two months and an airbnb. That's going to close in four months. That is an amazing story. And the i love the most is that you started out as a leasing agent because i always push for people to get into real estate somehow to learn how to do it. They're nervous or they don't even know what exactly real state can do for you as an investor. So what would be your advice to someone about getting into a position like that. Leasing agent property management. How did you get that job with having no other real estate experience. Of course i mean with this my friend thankfully he just told me on the rest. I think you'd be good at it. You're people's person and you get along with people easily so like you know what i'll just do it. I applied for the job and at first it was like you know what i'll just least once in a while but when i started doing it a law junior year when i noticed that real estate really gave me the time to do real say whenever i wanted so if i had finals like you know what i'm not gonna do real estate this week. I'm going to focus on finals and i didn't. I could do real estate and also the fact. They didn't have my own boss. So i decided by wanted to kill it in real estate. I'd go all out. And if i didn't i mean i could see the results so with this that really let a fire in the and it was crazy just setting the systems through my freshman sophomore year to get clients referrals. The property managers. I just let them know. Hey i'm gonna send you to clients over the property. Managers are like all right. That's fine and if they signed it'd be like five hundred dollars per bed. Or a percentage of the monthly rent. So that was amazing. I really really enjoyed that. So how that was set up was you were a realtor working for a brokerage and you reached out to the property managers in lease them. You weren't hired by the property. Managers per se correct. So as onus agent you get to take clients for example. I have some clients. They give me their needs. Ask a lot of questions and then from there. I'm like okay. Three apartment complexes apartments really they offer incentives for realtors the commission because of the fact that they need people. So i'm the one bringing the people and they give me a commission. Because i was the one that brought them so i mean all of my friends. Group were my clients. Everyone needed a place to live so with this. There was like the perfect job in college. Had my own time. And i didn't have a boss and i mean junior and senior year through the money i made i was able to pay for college and housing and then through a reversal that i got through leasing. I got to do a one point. One million dollars sale i ever sale and i swear i did not know anything about sales that i just dove into it with a partner because when i got that sales referral. My friend has like yeah. He wants to lease on the phone. Like what's up dude. What's your criteria. Like yeah my budget's a million to three million solves like i had no idea what the do sales like. Okay i'll give back to you. I partnered with one of my friends and long story. Short i learned. Hoa was which. I didn't know what it was before. I learned a lot of other things that experience and yacky closed on one point one million dollar condo
The Cost Of Raising A Star High School QB
"So antonio for people who don't follow college football super closely. Who is dorrie and thompson robinson is. Ucla's starting quarterback right now dopson robinson with the at dow field by called entity. Stay off. yes. He did touchdown. Ucla he's a guy's guy who can run you can throw. And he doesn't really well touchdown. Tops of robinson falling backwards felt like probably ninety yards away. He's very outgoing and like he's very aware to coast kelly just us. You know we tell you wanna know at a time and one game at a time. So that's what you're seeing right now. His numbers of improved. His completion percentage improved each year. And this year i thought he was really really good. This is about to be an all time. High waist can swim urge. You know just both on the ground with his arm and tony. You recently have long conversation with during his mother about the families football journey to get a sense of what it takes to raise a blue chip quarterback these days so first of all tell us a little bit about during mother mel the thompson robinson. She's a professor at unlv. And i know. She took a very big role in raising doreen and helping them go to this journey. She separated with his father. She's kind of the one who is doing most of the heavy lifting. He has a sister as well such as the family who seems very self aware all right so when did the families. Football journey begin. When during i start playing football obviously playing when he was very young and playing pop warner r. e. and then because we live in las vegas the we have you know good weather year round know the fall and spring in tournaments in the summer. So you know. Football is almost year round this prisoner. Sophomore year he played some receiver than towards his judy. That's when he was solely focusing on quarterback. There's not a lot of available quarterback trainers in las vegas so he had to travel the phoenix to some work. Done glow to seem as quarterback coach very often. Because of the like once a year he actually worked with in person. One year never wait. There's more virtual learning which is kind of unique before the pandemic so his mom would watch him throw passes and she tried to use what she learned from the quarterback coach to kind of teach dory and what to do via video know with uploaded to kogo. Dr been shared with his coach. And then they would you know talk about it or you know. They would go through his game film or other film and just talk about like. What are the things that you should be looking at which you should be doing. So i assume that this private quarterback coaching he was getting was fairly pricey. What other expenses was his family taking on as dorian was coming up through high school. Yeah there's that tuition and schools during bishop gorman in las vegas twelve thirteen thousand dollars a year you. We were paying for camp in spirit packs. You know the team travels dollars right there. But then when you're talking about college recruiting camps in the average trip probably costs about sixteen hundred dollars per trip There's a lot of the unofficial visit. St the buyer tickets to university of oregon the university of miami or michigan. However you're
Married to the Movement
"I was fifteen. And sean you. You're seventeen right when we first met. And we were both in church in lexington kentucky and we met just so you. I asked me for my number at the watch night service and those who long before that though. Yeah but watch night services a tradition in the back this church maybe other churches actually not just baptist but is it a particularly black thing. I don't know watch night services where you just you watch the new year. Come in you're at church at midnight and there's like a church service and then afterwards there's normally a dinner or breakfast being served. It's a really awesome time. That was the first time you actually from my number. But you're right. We have met before then. Just seen each at church and out. I'll let you tell the story of how you became immediately smitten with. I didn't notice what s where you were going. But and i saw this girl who seemed like she was running things she really was the sunday school secretary but not just for children like for the whole sunday school at the church and i remember just thinking to myself. Who is this young girl. That is running everything. She was super spunky and she always warlike creative hats and had a lot of style. So you just pique my interest. But at that time she and i both always kept a boyfriend and girlfriend and so she was dating. Somebody and i was dating somebody. But i i was pretty interested in her. It took me almost six months to kind of build up the nerve to to get her number and then even very slow moving. I was interested in you for really from the first moment that we started talking to each other and john would show up at choir rehearsals and stuff for no good reason. He didn't sing. He wasn't in the choir. I was but i guess they didn't have anything better to do it. His time on a thursday night and so he would come and we were like chitchat. And even after you asked for my number. And i gave it to you like it took forever to to ask me out. I think you were shy. I was slow. Maybe i was a bit shy. But i think some of it was. I had just grown to be like a super private person at that point in time. And so i'd have to even go back in time and reimagined what i was thinking but once we got started we were super committed to each other in super into each other. After that we went on our first date. I was a sophomore in high school. John was a senior and then he left to go to morehouse college in atlanta. And i was still stuck in kentucky waiting to graduate high school and then i would go to atlanta to attend spellman. We dated long distance for two years and it will never not amaze me that we maintained long distance relationship s. sixteen and eighteen year old and he was in atlanta the city of lag. Black excellent surrounded by all these beautiful women and still somehow interested in little me backing kentucky. But he was and we made it and about two years into college. Actually we got married because the baby came. I actually our oldest birch out candy. She was born my sophomore year. Now she was born junior year at spelman and we got married before she was born. Just to be sure we weren't total heathen we have been raised in church and so that was like a requirement before that baby gets here. You better be married so we did get married and had kendy and so we were super young parents. I tell everybody. I had a husband and a baby and i couldn't even drink yet. I wasn't even twenty one years old kids really and when you're in college in this kind of in between stage of childhood and adulthood and we hardly knew how to provide for ourselves sauce doing airport security and we were still going to school fulltime which was a struggle. We both struggled to finish college. We did when we knew in part. Not just that we wanted to do it but we knew act to to make a life in a living for ourselves that we were going to have to finish school but it was brutally difficult to do that with a young family. And when we were doing this in two thousand and one it was particularly in the college environment where we were more house than spelman are super traditional and it was kind of frowned upon in a way to be a young parent. Mba student for sure. Nobody was saying anything overtly necessarily but we were aware now you see videos and things go viral of professors holding babies while they're trying to concentrate in class and that was not our experience like me walking around bully nine months pregnant. I don't remember anybody else who was doing that. Yeah it was really difficult. It was alienating in some ways our lives completely changed pretty much at every stage of life. Man not tell people now. I really can't separate my whole adulthood from being a father and rain. I've been parents literally almost every year of our adult life and so our entire journey of even self-discovery in our twenties of trying to understand what either one of us grew up in a household where we saw healthy marriages and healthy relationships kind of had to struggle and sometimes flounder and figure those things out on our own and one of the things they ran. I've always tried to tell people is when you grow up in a lot of ways when you grow up in a marriage. We were together as teenagers together in our twenties in our thirties. Now i'm forty. You are with somebody through several phases of life and we've had to learn some really hard lessons than heart's skills on how to support in love your spouse through all the different natural phases that a lot of people just by the time you marry somebody. They've already gone through some of those phases. We've learned a lot of lessons. Have been with each other for now. Almost twenty five years even though whereas young as we are. We've we're nearing twenty five year point of being together

I became obsessed with felicity because she was like I mean obviously Carey is stunning I'm talking about like I know are but I think really affected. Me Was it. It was about this woman who didn't know what she wanted, but she knew she wanted Ben and saying it now it's like such an eye roll but I just thought it was so cool that she. Didn't do anything that her parents or friends wanted her to do and she like just dropped everything and moved to New York for this guy and Mike as a eleven year old a twelve year old I was like yes. Hi. I'm this is I'm going. This is where I'm going I. totally forgot you're going here. So unbelievable. I know this from high school. This is Susan this is. This is. versity felicity while. All right. So I'll see you around. and. Just told myself that I was going to do the same thing felicity did and obviously I mean I there wasn't a boy that I was like in love with and moving to New York for but I researched that like the school that they were modeling it after. Was Nyu, and so I decided that when I was gonNA turn eighteen that that was the school I was GonNa go to. So it's crazy to say now and you know when I did turn eighteen deny auditioned for nyu I didn't get in and so it was heartbreaking and all that stuff and obviously I realized I was not in TV show in not felicity. But then I auditioned my sophomore year and then I did get in and so I moved I dropped everything and moved to New York did you also? Like seek out a job at Dean and Deluca to really out. Absolutely, and they were like no ma'am and I was like please and it's crazy because i. think when I went in there I couldn't afford like not even a Bego I think it was like seven dollars an onion Bagel. But I was like for me like walking Dean and Deluca was like walking into a museum felicity just had an extreme profound effect I. Mean even now I go back and just watch the pilot discussed. Makes me feel good. So getting a little bit into your work to words that we noticed while researching up on, you two words that positively came up a lot to describe your work either by like your own words or other people describing your work. Were dark and weird. So I was wondering what those words, those two words mean to you. I think if I'm honest both of those words like. Growing up had a negative connotation for me I. Think. People often thought I was extremely weird and you know I was a pretty dark kid in terms of the stuff that I was into I mean publicity isn't that dark but I was really into. Buffy obviously but also these. Books where like it's just you know murder and incest, and then I think a lot of my friends were reading goosebumps which I was into but then like my sister was reading just rl Stein. So I was like wait what's that and so I kind of ditched goosebumps because it was like. And got into Rl. Stein. The adult books recalled Rl Stein and so I would read those a lot and those kind of just kept my. I think I was obsessed with a lot of stuff but I didn't WanNa read the Kitty Shit. I really wanted the adult books and I fought really hard. To like, trick my parents into getting me the staff and pretending it was a PG and That's just show you the kind of kid. I was just like I was beyond curious like I wanted the content I wanted I just wanted to grow up really
Determining Your One Thing with Gary Keller
"Hey. If you're a small business owner by now, you have figured out that you can't just work in the business you got to work on the business you've got to get above it gotta do strategic planning and team building all the things that cause a business to actually scale to the next level. That's what it takes to achieve your dreams. But how do you do that? It's not that easy. From the Ramsey network this is the entree leadership podcast where we help business leaders, grow themselves, their teams and their profits. I'm your host Daniel. Tardy, and today we're GonNa talk about how you actually scale a business. How do you get out of that startup stage the treadmill stage you know the bootstrap thing where it's hard and just grinding whatever you WANNA call that stage you've got to break through it to get to the next level. But, it all starts with what we call humble beginnings. All businesses start, but they don't have to stay there and they should stay there had you've got dreams of this thing becoming a big deal and my guest today it's GonNa teach you exactly how that works. Gary Keller is the CO founder, chairman and CEO of keller-williams maybe you've heard of them well, in fact, they're the world's largest real estate firm by agent count he's a titan of his industry he's built a dynasty. But it didn't start that way. And a Gary's, case. He was a real estate agent. With no track, record. So I didn't have any real focus in college and my dad, my sophomore year says, Hey, you probably need to get a major. So he had me that summer spin a day with a lawyer David account a with a banker with a realtor not like the real tournament went back to college and turns out they were just a major mural state. So that's how I came to get my degree allstate was the dad said, just go shadow these people. As exercise I mean most dads don't have their sons do this. So that's that's fascinating to me. He was an educator. So my mother and father were both educated so that that made sense to him. I got to college study real estate came out attributed like a job. So one of the biggest mistakes the independent contractors make is they don't treat it like a job, right they get in there for the freedom and the flexibility and the possibility of untold wealth, and what they do is they take advantage of the freedom and flexibility and they overtake advantage of it, and then they never get the wealth. It's a job it's a job. So I came out of college come to Austin I'd been here once before my. Family I didn't know anybody at the time other than a former school friend and join US Real Estate Company and start selling real estate and all I did was treated like a job that is I got up early and I went to work. So I showed up and by the way there was nobody there and literally would pull my little Volkswagen into the office and there was nobody there and I just got to work and they said look you're gonNA have to generate because we're not going to give you any clients. And of course, I went oh my gosh and they didn't talk about that in college at all. You know they talked about real estate they never said you to generate a client, right? and. So I had to go learn to Lee generate and I read some books and two classes and I went out and I saw five houses my first thirty days in a city that actually never been to write other than once and I did it just by following the books I did what they told me I. Didn't one of the mistakes that we make. I think is that we try to be creative on the front end of doing something instead of the back end and when I mean is is that I had a college professor say Gary Pretty Smart. But if you look around, you realize that people have lived before you. And you might WanNA study them before you go and try to reinvent the wheel and that had a profound impact on me because my went. Okay. So what he's saying is I, should go find out where people who are doing this the best are and just mimic them until I internalize what they're doing. So I, understand it and then I can be creative off of that but. I shouldn't go in and just be creative on the front end because what do I know it would take me years to get smart by doing it and learning from me doing it. I could really speed that up I copy and other people in the beginning. So that's really what got me going. What I came to understand was sales is helping people make good decisions and I didn't. Care in the end I had no real vested interest if the decision was not to buy or if it was to buy because I was looking for clients for life and in the short term, you would think well, I needed everyone to buy because I or or sell with me because I need to make money now but I looked up and I realized pretty quick I wanted to. Have a great career, not just a great year in the way to have a great career was to not overly emphasize the moments income focus on doing right by people they'll do right by you. Right people don't care how much you know until they care right? Did you it these mantras that are not really just mantras they're actually golden rules in philosophies about how to look at things.

Chaotic start to school year
"Well, we have a very odd school year. It's underway in some parts of the country. Other places won't even be underway till after Labor Day, but it is haphazard and. To call it, weird would not encompass it. Producer Joel has to school age kids and what's your kids story as far as their school. So they pushed back the start date for for two weeks of school in the first nine weeks are going to be virtual learning. And your kids are young young. So virtual learning at. Their age five, seven years old. That's right. Yeah. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be Kinda hard to do the virtual learning thing You know we did my my five year old was in pre k. last year, and you know when they when they stopped going in person, we basically abandoned the online learning pretty quickly because for four year old to try to learn in front of a computer is is darn near impossible. Unless, it was a cartoon video, right exactly and I have a ninth grader, a high schooler who for now is going back into the classroom and they have a color coded system that I talked about a few weeks ago, which is yellow orange and red red is online. Only yellow is in the classroom four days a week in person orange two days a week in person, and they're starting off at yellow four days a week, and they are doing extreme distancing of the kids hundred percent mass compliance. And it is. Everything, they could do to try to deal with the public health side, my daughter, who is a college junior. Her school. Is Online, only all the way at least till January and I. Can tell you, she hated online march, April and May. And It was a terrible way to finish her sophomore year, and now she's got it all fall long as a college junior. They did cut the tuition though four percent. Still a crazy amount of money. But they gave a small tuition reduction. For the fact that is online. and. So this is something all of us are going to experience. It's going to keep changing. A suburb of Atlanta, that was much in the news nationally actually internationally for starting back school with no mass required no distancing required and immediately ended up with an outbreak of corona virus, and now is online only till they figure out what to do next. and. So this is hard for parents. especially, anytime, family lives in a multi generational household with grandparents living under the same rule. Roof is a school age. Grandkids is an intensely dangerous thing. If GRANDKID BRINGS CORONA virus from school and gives it to a grandparent in the house, the fatalities from Corona virus overwhelmingly had been among older Americans, and so the schools will benefit the most and the kids benefit the most from being in the classroom. But the teachers many of which may have a pre existing condition or endanger, and that's why having public health protocol for the kids is so important, but it's also important because. Preventing an outbreak in the school allows the school potentially to stay in person where it cannot otherwise. So. I. Hope that. We're able to keep our kids in school people like me who are fortunate to have at least one kid gets to go back in the classroom, but for this to work going forward. The safety protocols have to come first. So teachers staff. Administrators. Are, as safe as they can be in the school environment and that the kids coming home. Keep their. Family, members safe. That kids are not just like Joel's. Young, child, was not able to. Hang with the online thing, a lot of kids can't, and then other kids don't even have Internet access and can't do so.
The Case for Police Abolition
"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms. That meet cannot possibly rehabilitate a system that has no

Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.
Remembering Christian Laettner's Famous Buzzer-Beater
"Friends from Pearl Jam taping this Sunday afternoon. We don't need to take this on Sunday night anymore. Because there's no sports it's all it's all vintage sports. I've actually been preparing for this moment. My whole life. Old Games ran. Russillo is here as he is every Sunday. This was the part of the schedule. And we'll be talking about March madness thoughts where the last couple of weeks of the NBA would were going. Would-be worried about Mvp conversations and things like that. Now now I wanNA talk about The later shot. 'cause I watched that with my son yesterday. He had never seen he didn't know is going to happen. He was amazed. I got to relive it. Threw Him Russillo. Yeah that was Was An all time. I mean that that seriously in the moment you're like this is a kind of game that I'm going to think about the rest of my life. I mean not every day Certainly but late nurses dominance is a college player and then seeing younger people watch that game now and not like Lakers mom and you go. You guys have no idea you have you have no you think you know but you don't you know what I what struck me watching that game. I thought Leitner was going to be a really incredible pro because he was so good in college. But then you watch him and you think about the translate him as I go. He's got slow feet was really hard for him to like. Put The ball down. Every shot was almost like a miracle shot by hamlet on balance. Fling shots These turnaround fifteen footers. I think nowadays he would have been an awesome stretch five. I think he would have been shooting eight threes. A game in everything he did would have been different but I am. I was mad at myself. Twenty eight years ago that I thought later was going to be such good proud. Who else knew who knows what else happened. When we went to the wrong team. He had some personal issues etc. You know what the great lesson about Labor is is that he was. You'll know better than I want to get anything where I get this. Kinda thing wrong. But was he one of the first guys like tested positive for. We'd like in that era. Right or was rumored or something. There is always always rumors. He talked about that thirty for thirty. We did that. You know he definitely Off The court might have had a couple issues but a everything. I love watching these games and just getting upset about some of the issues are making 'cause like Grant Hill. Just first of all. He was a soft mark coming off the bench which seemed inconceivable but It seemed like he could have gone by anybody. He wanted to Kentucky team at all times and yet they're like all right spread out for Hurley. This is much better option. Hurley's got this. Maybe she go to grant hale the guy who guy who's going to be a first team all NBA guy in five years. Yeah later was suspended. Some Games there. I Don history but I just wanted to double check it because I remember later on and that was you know when I started talking to guys in front offices in I would be leading up to the draft and I was like you know. How can you figure some of the stuff out because what you learn is that no one really figures it out? But when you're outside of the world you think everybody has this magic. Is that that none of us can understand? It's really not that and something to gm told me that was really really smart and again it was the very beginning of me talking to these guys when we were talking about backgrounds personalities and try to figure things out and he goes look he was plenty of guys that are from terrible areas. Have a terrible family set up and have bad guys around left and right. And they're the best teammates they practice hard. They care they never get any trouble and then you look at somebody like Leitner. Who's like the poster boy? He's one of the best college basketball players in history. Not just guys that we saw was that dominant. He was incredible. And it's like here. He is Duke. Looks like he's a gap model and the whole deal and it was like well. Yeah you know now no one cares about any of this stuff but I just always thought that was really really interesting to kind of talk about lake nurse transition to the pros because he was. It's hard to imagine. He wasn't better because he still was a decent player like he still had a decent career but he was at all incredibly dominating at Duke You thought there's there's no way this isn't going to be a special pro. Plus we had familiarity with them. Because we're able to you know. Watch him and watch that Duke team evolve and even like they were shown Cherokee parks on the bench and acid. Like I remember. They recruited him. He was like the number one guy in deal he was going to be. It was going to go from ferry to Leitner to Cherokee parks. And you know you watch him on the bench and guys like Thomas Thomas Hale who added thought of in forever you know we just watched all those games back then and and something changed with College. Probably Fifteen sixteen years ago when you know. Maybe they will. Maybe it was less time. I know everybody's talked about all the possible reasons for it but it just met more back then like I remember where I watched that game and who I was with. You know an and there's been Great College Basketball Games especially this year late. They were shown. Today they're shown Carolina Villanova two thousand sixteen. That was an awesome game. That was really fun. But it. There was a weightiness to especially that ninety two seasons. Because you had the The fab five and It just every I remember everything about that seasons it was fun to relive it. I thought. Cps did a good job the way they showed it see. It felt like a real game. They didn't try to cut ahead. They would go to commercial and they would only show one ad so they could go right back so it stayed in the flow. But they didn't try to edit it. They didn't cut free throws so it kind of felt like being a time machine right. Yeah that when I've gone back in watch the NBA stuff You sit there and like the thing that jumps out especially working on the side of it now like I would. They're all these things that I would never think about is just a kid home watching these games and now that you work in it not that you and I have extensive background calling games but you just you look at it so differently You know when you mentioned the college basketball thing though it is. It's a simple answer. You can't have a brand where you're changing the brand every single time like. Imagine if you had this hit. Tv show with all these characters that people invested in and he said. Oh by the way we're never bringing these characters back for season two where he's GonNa bring all new characters and it just. It's hard it's really simple answer. But the turnover. Who used to get weird when guys would leave after their sophomore years but like what like what that. Guy. I think. He's doing now granted. It's wrong I think I should be able to go straight out of high school but there's just you know we like things to be easy as fans and really as consumers in any story like really it's how do you get people to jump into the next part of the story and college. Hoops like how many people can name. Who's on Baylor? You know for the season started. I stopped everything to watch Baylor. Kansas and it was a really fun game. This year was like nine. Am Tip out here. But I know that those kind of Duke Games or that Saint. John's Georgetown stuff for Sarah to that big Monday like I would watch that instead of the NBA growing up and now. It's absurd to think I would ever do that. I saw. I noticed watching that thinking about that team and even Kentucky and they were talking about how they were on probation for two years and the guys stuck around. Patino saying they really have anywhere else to go the other. Yeah they had all these seniors that were there but one of the things. I loved about college back then. Was it married high school in the sense I. The new guy shows up. And he's the freshman. He's gotTA prove himself. But then you got the older kids that have been there for a while and you know. The Duke was like the perfect example of. They're they're really like a high school team. Cherokee parks was the young freshman. Grant Hill was a sophomore. Who is going to take it over when Leitner leaves and and that dynamic that just eventually was gone. You Watch that game and you're thinking Mashburn Ingrain. Hiller are sophomores Mashburn. Just unbelievable there. Eight hundred twenty eight ten just looks like a classic stretch for now he he would have been I think a multiple our NBA Guy. There's no reason he should've even stayed at Kentucky for two years he should have gotten into the NBA as fast as you possibly could. We didn't realize that back then. Yeah I got to know Mashburn when he was at he. Spn One of my favorite living in Bristol stories. Is he and I go into Walmart to buy an extra controller and I didn't know it was going to pay for it because I didn't want to assume anything and I was like. Yeah 'cause I had the playstations hooked up in my hotel room and we were just bored out of their minds so it's me Jamal Mashburn at Walmart and I asked him about that team. And I always when asked about different coaches that these guys played for. I was always really interested. In which coaches told you to stay or told you to go because they're guys that are really selfish about it but then there's other ways you know now it's it's out of control like no one. Stang but back then I was like well. What would say to you he goes? I'm not letting you come back. You're too good like you're too good. You have to get out of here and I know you know Ripa Tinos. Rep's is taking pretty big hits over the last couple of years but that was something that I was always really impressed with that. He just looked at like I was like. Did you want us? He's Kinda wanted to stay because mashes whole thing was like. He's a New York City guy and his mother wouldn't let him go to a school in New York City. He was telling me about some of the recruiting stuff like Saint. John's back then still would've thought they were getting Jamal Mashburn. And he's like my mother was like you're not you're not playing ball in the city. And then he goes on a Kentucky after Kentucky went through that that brutal stretch. And you know that's that's the game if you're thinking of one loss that you've had in your Phantom Bill. I'm trying to think maybe it's two thousand. Ten Celtics Lakers the one. That's things the most I don't know if it's game six eighty six in the mets. But that doesn't feel as bad since they've won four titles but if you're a Kentucky fan like that's the kind of that stuff comes up every day it's like Bucky Dent in the eighties for Red Sox fan just sitting at a bar. Mfn Bucky Dent on because later shot. Well the Kentucky did end up winning. I think it's probably worse for Mashburn Jerk Kentucky Fan. You had to tidal teams later in the decade. Because like Ben and I were watching. We went right from yesterday. We were watching that Kentucky game and then the Major League Baseball Network were showing the playoff game in seventy eight Yankees Red Sox and we watched the last like probably two and a half innings and I was explaining to him how the playoffs worked back. Then it was a gay. You played the whole season. It was two division champs in each league. They tied so we had to have a playoff game. And he was like Whoa. How did they decide? Who had it as like? I don't remember. I just remember like everybody from Boston to stay home that day. And we're watching it. He had no idea it was going to happen. And a living through the the remmy hits that shot to Pinella. Panella can't see any just jabs his jabs his mid out. I'm getting mad at George Scott all over again. I think he was my least favorite. Red Sox player just swing for the fences. Every time never never touched a ball early on that he was early. It was at the head of it. Yeah Jangle That was such an agonizing loss and they've won four world series since and it still really hurts Agata Sad. I don't feel any better from it. Yeah I I grew up hearing about it because you know that's where our our gap comes into play. Were still too young to but it was one of the first things like eighty two as my first sox game against brewers and I I just remember like the Bucky Dent thing like it was four years later and people still in them. I remember that we again emceeing. So if the way your brain store stuff early when there's nothing else in there so they allies kids we can always go back and remember anything. Because there's no distractions of real life. But I remember being upset after the fact years later. Just my father telling me that they blew the fourteen game lead and you just go. How is that possible? Like how? How could they have low like how they had the best team? And all these different things and again that stuff used a matter a lot more And Eighty six at all comes up again eight years later so we've seen over the last few days in especially ESPN and then Nba TV and emo but others channels. They're

Center Stage with Jenna Mao
"We are talking with Jenny. Moe Hello everybody and Jenna is a board certified dance movement therapist and counsellor. How did all of that come about? It has been a long journey for sure. So leave it. When I was in. Undergrad I was one of those kids that was undecided forever. I changed my major like six different times but one constant throughout all of my education when I was at the University of Wisconsin was that I was always involved in the dance program in some sort of way. Yeah I grew up dancing and I had always wanted to continue it in some sort of a way but I never really knew where I wanted to take it. I didn't feel like I could be a professional like doing some sort of performance career. I didn't like I wanted to teach it but it was always a passion in something that I really really loved doing so when I was like midway through. I think they'd be like my sophomore year. One of my professors was Meeting with me and she said you know you strike me as somebody that might be interested in this crazy. Field called dance and movement therapy. That's so wild. I know and I was so so fortunate. Because at the University of Wisconsin they had a certificate program in dance therapy which is typically unheard of being. Huzzah all of the education. If you're going to become dance. Therapist is at the master's Level. Okay so we actually had a dance therapist. Who taught a handful of courses at the undergraduate level so that there were people that were interested in the field they could get like a little taste of what it was like and then they can decide from there if they wanted to go on to graduate school to actually like pursue all of the education and degree requirements? It takes to become a dance therapist so I give that a shot and absolutely fell in love with it and I only thing was convinced that this is something that I wanted to do. And so then it took us so from there. I did two years of graduate school and so I was from there so fortunate to them behind shared at my job right currently and at right now which is working as a dance therapist in a children's hospital which is also a children's hospital that I used to work out in Wisconsin Little known fact Jenas. Actually my cousin there is. There's no nepotism on this podcast. Never heard of that as a career and I just think it's so awesome that you are able to take something that you've always loved so much I mean we. We grew up dancing together in the same studio and you were actually able to make a career out of it and that's so frigging awesome legs so in where Little Okay. So we do. A thing called a lubrication warm up question And it's usually just something funny but for you. I was like you know I feel like everyone who finds that. I'm a Nikki nurse. They're like Oh my God. It must be so nice to sit around and hope eighties all day. Yes so as a dance therapist once people find out what your job title is. What's the first thing they ask you? Oh what they ask me is More so along the lines of like. Oh you're done must be so fun I would love that. Can you come to that for the staff? Oh My Gosh. And which would also become a cool. I would totally love it and I think there's there's very real benefits in providing some therapy for staff in a hospital system because yeah I'm sure amount of research so high exactly like everybody who is familiar with the system in any sort of a aspect is just very very aware of how grueling and demanding it is to gas gently be serving others and yeah others in very fragile states so there is there is definitely some validity to that. Don't get me wrong ray. I think what is hard for people to recognize? Is that while the therapy type. Isn't like what you're traditionally used to like your Ling. Talk therapist or your counselors psychologists. There is real therapy. Work being done in our sessions. It just doesn't happen through sitting in chairs and discussing everything right. We use our bodies and movements and sometimes yes dancing to communicate what's happening with us and to process the whole experience and to find healing in that way. I. This is so incredible because I don't know if if there are many people that grow up with with like dance background but you know even people that just go to club and dance. You know you're still expressing yourself through movement but when I just remember in my ballet ballet primarily there's something that just comes over you when you're moving and you can't if you've had a bad day you might like dance a little harder or if you're feeling a certain way like it's it's so hard to explain that like unless you're dancer that feeling that just kind of like it's like electricity. That moves her. You're right when you just said it. It's a feeling it's your belt since it's all of all of what you can't put into words so this is exactly why dance. Therapy is so so beneficial's because sometimes people don't have the words especially working with kids. They might even have the vocabulary to lay articulate. Exactly what is going on for them? So if I'm working with you and you can show me with your body. That's what I'm trained it. I'm trained to see and observe various things in your facial expression or the way that you're gesturing or the way that you're carrying yourself or sitting and then I can help you work through that because sometimes we don't always have the words for one. Oh I lose on this podcast all the time. If I could dance out this podcast you might be more entertaining for some people. I don't know I've lost some dance. Get you know. But it's okay. It's okay it's just about it's that communicating about how you feel and what's going on for you in the moment it. It's not a performance. It's not the show like there's never an end product it's always a process oriented experience of that I'm just so excited that I get to learn more about what you do and I'm so grateful to be here because it. It is one of those fields where we've been established sense like early nineteen sixties and. It's definitely growing and always evolving. And I think what is so great about me being able to come and talk with you about this and let more people know that and get more awareness is that we can work in a medical setting right. And that's I think a really unique Lake Niche For dance therapists to be an. It's really common for other therapists to work in like Rehab centers or school settings or inpatient psych hospitals or outpatient clinics. But the medical reminded of if anyone ever saw girl interrupted and the class and the girl sitting there. And she's like you're a tree Janice your tree and I won't stand up Dan. Okay sorry segue relevant but yeah you know so so. Medical Dance and movement therapy is definitely a a newer and less known about. Yeah little you know subset of all the great work that other dance therapists are doing around the nation. That's so cool and I think When I worked at a children's Hospital Wisconsin. I mean obviously I was in the Nikki like we don't have dance therapy in there. We have more speech. Therapists Occupational Physical Therapist But I remember when I start God when I started. It was like two thousand. Seven was a long time ago But during orientation you know they have everyone in there. They have Nikki nurses they have nurses in different units on the hospital and just learning about everything that was offered at children's was incredible. I mean like I knew. They offered like tutoring and classes and stuff. But I didn't know that this was a form of therapy. The multidisciplinary support that is being offered in our hospital currently. But I'm sure in lots of other paediatric facilies is something. That's ordered huge like doc. Yeah in order. Yeah well so we're a concept based service okay go Any sort of physician nurses nurse Practitioners Social Workers. Pretty much anybody that has access to the medical chart and put in a request for myself or any other member of my team to go and provide support for
Wait, I Dont Have To Be Killing Myself At The Gym? Ft. Anne Mahlum
"Easiest way to explain it for folks that we we have to put ourselves in a category. It's it's very intensified version of of pilates when people think of pilates or traditional plots. I think as we think of you know folks. That are lying down restorative you're doing to rehabilitate from an injury or something of that sort or you do pilates because you can't do something else and that was frankly you know my association with the word to and then I took a pilates class in L. A. and I didn't know you could work out like this. I didn't know you could get such intensity so safely moving. So slowly right. That's awesome what I like about the class though that I feel like differentiates from other plots classes. But it's in the dark like dimly Lynn. Because I always felt like if I've been to other classes everyone is staring at me while I cannot hold this plank like it makes you feel like you're on your own little bubble and then you could just like look. Oh I used to teach me. I had two hyphen. Yeah with our eyes. Honestly I think that classes in the dark. Make a huge difference. I noticed that I actually don't really like classes if they're not in the dark because I think it might be because just the mood is better mood. Yeah Yeah there's an element I think when you walk in and you know you're in a different environment that it's not just the lighting and everything is the same when when classes going or when it's off you sort of get into this zone when lights go off. Music comes up. And you're like okay. We're GONNA do this for fifty minutes. I was telling you about our new studio leader which is underground. So you really feel like you're like okay. We're we're doing this and I'm here and I'm president. Your phone doesn't work down there so you can't really escape pilates. Cave plotting gave so okay. Even though you are the solid core founder. You have a lot more to your story so we wanted to kind of hear your whole story. I guess out. We'll let you get the narrative Dr Gaining the beginning. Wh-a were we born. I was mentioning to one of your teammates. Hear Sean. I still spend time in North Dakota which is where I was born. I'm actually. They're like a good chunk out of out of the month. All my family is still there split my time between North Dakota DC New York and the news usually another trip around the studios or personally So I I do live out of a suitcase is in North Dakota like what North Dakota versus New York City. Give us a comparison. Internet is coming North Dakota. It's I mean listen. It's it's Kinda like a big suburb. Bismarck is where I grew up goes but now it's a big suburb. There's like sixty seven thousand people there. But they're solid core there. I opened a studio there in two thousand seventeen. My High School were just clamoring to like. How would you just open one of these? We have nothing and I was like. I don't really know if this is going to be so successful but I just felt like it would work. We would at least not lose money and so there was just like this. This pride about you know bringing something back there to my home state. And so yeah. Now there's six in the entire tire state. There's aren't Fargo grand forks. Mina are you do you dominate the North Dakota simply because there's no competition but yeah orange theory you know orange Syria as popping up in Fargo. There's it's it's becoming more. I think were I think we were part of that movement? You know we obviously New York and La Boutique. Fitness has been around for a long time but these middle kind of we call them tertiary tier two tier three tier four markets get overlooked. They don't get anything. Yeah but there are people. They're looking for things to do. You know they want their active fit and So yeah like we opened Bismarck. Where like actually there's something here. We think we can open up in a lot smaller markets and be super successful because we focus so much on community and the results are there. That's awesome all right so North Dakota so tell us about like growing up high school all that I know there's a bunch there. Yeah I think any time you know. All of us grew up in certain areas. We can think back to. What will you like being a kid there? And I'm like Oh this is how everybody lives like. This is what it's like being a kid. No matter where you are in the world you just have such a small view of what reality is so house. Big Backyard to brother sister middle class middle class family. I've done a good amount of public speaking so I feel my stories on lines with policies for redundancy of people have heard in no don't Yeah but every okay so yeah so I I truly thought I had my entire life figured out by the time I was twelve years old because my yeah my life went really great until twelve. It's like cool. I'm good at sports like I got boys chasing me around at recess at playground. School seems pretty easy. This thing is like totally fine. I got it and then when I was sixteen years old. I got kind of hard dose of Reality of what my dad's life was like. How stable my parents? My parents marriage was so when I was sixteen or seventeen before my sophomore year. In High School Is when I found out. My Dad was a gambling addict and he told us because he was which most addictions do. They get to the point where they're like you've got to your rock bottom and you do something. There's no other way out than to tell people what's going on. So Miandad owed a lot of people a lot of money and he had to come clean with my mom And my mom kicked me out of the House that day and for kid who thinks he's got like a stable family is going on. What do you mean? Dad's not living here. But unfortunately my dad went through drug and alcohol addiction when I was really young so have never seen my drink or do drugs but my mom has and she's like I can't go through this again and we didn't. We weren't poor but we didn't have a lot of money. My Dad sold insurance. My Mom's a teacher. So money was my mom's Achilles heel like you threaten Matt and my dad did like our savings was drained our education all of these accounts that she worked so hard for so she just couldn't recover from it. I get it now but at the time. I'm like your big bad mother. Who's taking my father away. So the next three years a really tumultuous with my mom I blamed her for my imperfect life and I also spend that time trying to fix with other Both both unsuccessful efforts. Nothing good came out of those approaches. Frankly and that's when I became a runner I turned to running to deal with all of the emotional turmoil I was going through and found strength in the movement found strength in moving my body forward all the metaphors around taking things one step at a time it just the whole thing really resonated with

"sophomore year" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"That was my dream winning a state championship for my dad. And so, you know, either way I think that Indiana started recruiting my sophomore year, Dan dockage. Ironically was the first. Indiana coach to start recruiting me. But I was just a dream of mine to. You know, when I was young to just go play basketball Indiana for coach night and coach night. I viewed as was similar to my dad. His offense defense is principles. My dad talked about him a lot. I felt like you know in an alternate universe. Dugan. Probably would have went and played for them to if Michigan didn't exist because coach night represented what what the game was to us hard work. Championships doing it. Right. You know, there wasn't a lot of. A lot of cheating going on in his program felt like we were just gonna get an honest environment. That was going to make you better. And that's what that's ultimately what it was even when I went there. Okay. So you show up first day on campus at Indiana. What do you remember? Well, my roommate was Luke wrecker and cow Hornsby from Louisiana cow Hornsby was a. We'll just he was a country boy, and Luke wrecker was was a sophomore. But the first thing that I saw with coaching I silver Lincoln. It's the first thing I remember and then moved into my apartment, and then when we played open gym and. I was fearless. And in here. I am a McDonald's all American thinking. I'm really good. And and what made me good is that I understood the game. I felt like I was way advanced, and you know, that as a son of son of a coach it's a blessing in a curse, you know. We are advanced. But then we think we know everything and we're stubborn. But I I I've gotten where I was by playing hard playing with effort playing tough. And so the first day of open gym. I ended up squaring off with a with a six eight two hundred thirty five pound twenty three year old named William gladness. Yeah, we need him in Oklahoma state. I mean, he was a junior college transfer. We nearly got him in Oklahoma state. We always like way man, we get William gladness will be I. Yeah. And I you know, I was always thankful that guys broke it up before they're grown. But I all I did was set a screen on them. Now will is is who's who's passed away. But great guy, but interesting enough about will is when you set a back screen on him, you know, screen them from behind you'll you had to be careful because he had a bullet lodged in his spine. And so apparently I'd hit that bullet. I hit something and turned around and he just sit guy. That wasn't even as as thirty as I could be will. But he said you hit my bullet hit my bullet. And and and so that was what I remember. My first day on campus is the whole team ready to fight me out of the gate. I mean, you guys had a pretty good team right yet. Mike Lewis you Kirk acing. We were loaded. We had a ton of talent..
"sophomore year" Discussed on Good Life Project
"That was always your intention. What's interesting to me? Also is that you were willing to play a long game. I was yeah. Yeah. I was really determined to particularly once I took a course in cognitive psychology my sophomore year, and we had a textbook, and there was a chapter intelligence and discover the science of intelligence there is no turning back. I mean that was it for me like I had a vague idea that I wanted to do psychology. But I didn't know there was a whole field. It's almost like in my head. I created this field that are existed. You know, like, I didn't even know it existed in them when I first of all when I learned existed. I remember myself him, you know, like I wanted to be the wanna redefined intelligence. Diligence is funny. I I remember thinking like wow this exists. But then I was like this is the guy need to study with her. So I walked to the front cover of the book the textbook settles written by Robert Sternberg, Yale University. And I remember the legendary college, and I was like will. That's who I'm gonna stay within grad school. And I went to the professor of cognitive psychology though, stunning with an Fe, she became a very important mentor. My Twitter of mind tension. I said I would love to go to grad school, Robert. She said great. Let's figure out a plan a very detailed plan to make that happen. So we did independent readings on intelligence. We had a whole semester where we yeah, we read every week. We would meet into research on intelligence, I was in the library. All the time every book and intelligence section of the library was obsessed. I stayed with her Simon who was a Nobel prize laureate took his graduate level class. And and then I spent a whole summer as a as a unpaid intern in strimmers lab at Yale. And he got me into spite my again, not stellar. Jerry scores now. So I mean, as you're doing all this, you're I mean, clearly, you're deepening your academic knowledge of the field in huge way. And also Semel Tinsley setting up for this again longer-term thing that you're like I will work out figure out a way animal into a couple years and reverse engineer the process to get there. So you're you're redefining your own cognitive capacity or redefining the way you look at it. But how how as your sort of moving through this and building your, wisdom, your knowledge and your jobs. How's it changing you as a person in the way that you saw yourself and experience the world really significantly like I didn't realize how much I loved learning till I was given the opportunity to do. So I I really do not realize it it. It was something that really struck something deep within me how much I just enjoyed. I remember I just stacks upon stacks of binders with peoper scientific papers, especially the semester, independent reading and fake. Couldn't keep up with me. Like she wrote that in her letter recommendation for me the gates scholarship because she lets show retail resignation. She's like literally I could not keep up Scott because he would like be. He was too excited. You know, like to learn the stuff, and he would come to me, and he would have read to binders worth of stuff on human intelligence, and I was just ravenously curious about this field and about a wanted to learn everything I felt like I felt like I had to catch up. You know, I didn't realize that. So it really changed. My my view myself because I didn't realize that I loved warning. And also that I could learn, you know, so maybe those two together. Like once I realized I could word also that excited me that I wanted to learn more under maybe it was interesting cycle..

But yeah, just like started it, and I took like a didn't high school, and I would be in like like working our bees and then on the weekends go play shows and then come back in we're at fucking arby's. And then kinda just all kind of built up and then after I toward got fired and then moved to move down here. But when I moved here was like, obviously, probably hopefully where everybody's head that where you're like I want to do this shit. Like, this is what I want. This is what I'm born to do. And that's like a really good attitude to have. But I feel like the only thing I missed was thinking about my like my psyche and myself, you know, what I mean because you go into it. And it's like people don't realize that there's you as a person, and then there's US like for me. It's like Tanner, and then get her, and it's like, it's. Always the same shit. So like if I fuck in. I don't know if I go toying get her, it's not me necessarily touring Tanner. Whereas like early on. I didn't really realize that. So it was kinda like everything was real. But like, none of that shows really real. And from what you see. Yeah. And maybe anyone can speak to this. I mean, do you feel that you would get rewarded basically for being getter? You know, like, the more you would be getter the more. You would be flustered dominoes or whatever it was that. You know, you you'd get rewards from that whether it was money, or you know likes or whatever it was. And then you could kind of lose the actual person behind it. You know what I mean? Yeah. I felt a yeah. I feel like that's what happened like I kind of got lost in not necessarily the partying because everybody fucking Lisa party like come on. But like you kinda just get like. You wake up you make phone call you work on a song? Fuck fucking maybe eat, and then play shows or just keep working on music, and you just don't take time for yourself, and like whether that be walking down the street or playing black ups for let's go it's like when it's all worth it, dude. It's like the shining like all work and no play straight up. Like you need to have time for yourself. A really big I'm gonna I'm gonna spend that a little bit too. Because like you said, you would leave in the need go out there and begetter then you come back home, Tanner. And like, I definitely felt that a lot too over the years like I would be flaws on the road. And I would be like this other person. I'd live this life, and my home life would kind of get paused, and I'd be out there on the road. Just go go go, and then I come back home. And then it would take me like a week to get back to reality. It was weird. Like, it was like I I love being on the road. It's such an amazing thing. But then all the glitz glamour and everyone like Jok in your ego. And all that stuff when you would come back home. It wasn't there. It's like my girls like, oh, you have to wash the dishes, you have to do this that and the other. So like it was hard to go from everyone like praising me and then coming back to reality. And that transition is kind of what messed me up. And I wish I was a little more aware of that. I wish there was someone that could have been like yo like take some time for yourself, and like learn how to meditate learn how to like eat healthy like 'cause I seriously would leave and like drink and eat so poorly arby's and then come back home. I try to eat whole foods or whatever it was just like the opposite. So I think that I I don't know what it was. But like that life was so tantalizing, and so awesome. That I just like leaned into the road life, and it became became my reality..

But you guys keep him the people if they want for the call, Jackie, I will address who's going to have a better season, the nuggets or the blazers. This is a tough call, and this is going to be a really good bit, and I encourage the person to take the nuggets in this dynamic. Here's what I four miles. We love the Portland trailblazers that court, we actually have called them, mama's boys for years, and it takes one to know one in Dame Leonard is CJ.

I would have to take the nuggets as well. I think the blazers will make the playoffs, but probably in the in like the seven seed, the nuggets could be in the five see the sixty.

"They're gonna bench him, but it's still not going to be the issue is not going to solve all of their issues. That's my point. Football, like basketball is a salary cap driven sport. There's only so many pieces of the pop when you invest that level of money into a wide receiver that not necessarily a UniteR not necessarily going to be your leader. It takes away from other assets. You get used to build out your squad, and that's what we see take place with the giants, of course, deserve this money, but in his dynamic, they're still not going to win. They haven't won with. They didn't win without him. He's on the t. right now they're one in five Jalen rose. We have a platform here Jalen Jacoby Ronnie ESPN two. We have a podcast, it's popular, and I think this responsibility that comes with this platform to point out some of the injustices, they're having our society. There is something disgusting happening amongst us. There's an injustice that is so wrong, so dubious so backhanded that we need to bring more attention to it. And of course, I am talking about the sequel to the film how high being produced and cast without the original stars method, man and Redman. We have taken it upon ourselves not just to shine light on this monstrosity, but we start a petition, a petition that was signed by over five thousand human beings saying, why are you making how high without Methuen in Redmond and Jalen rose. Now we have an update. We thought. Perhaps they were just trying to get some press. They would never do this method Redman. This is all some sort of an Okie Doke this to get publicity, but it's not. Here's what Redman had to say when he was asked about it quote, what happened is that a branch that's under universal, decided they were gonna shoot this movie and they did not need permission from us because we didn't own the rights to how high why bars me and meth. No, we were waiting on a new script to read for how high to Jalen rose. They are really serious about not producing method and Redman with out. I mean, I can't doing how high to Redmond. You could see what else man went on to say they've, they've cast it with little yadi. How is this even happening? Today's society for anybody to has a pulse. You know how much we love red man who's in our intro and met that man who contributes to our show really frequently all about away. Both of those gentlemen have another thing in common. They have bars. Okay. And they helped create a franchise with how high I attribute the success of that franchise with these two individuals for them to try to shoot how hot without them is a travesty.

"Jalen rose. Not only are you a student of the game of basketball, the game of life, but you're also a student of the game sports media. You've been in the game for so long. Do you understand how everything works? And you've pointed out to me that basically we talk about five teams in the NFL whether they're winning or whether losing there seems to be like five or six teams that are the only teams that we recognize sports me. And one of those teams is one in five right now, the New York Giants yet still, they dominate the headlines. They capture the collective conscious of the sports media because there's always drama around them, and that drama is always around Odal Beckham. And here's the latest from the giants owner, John Mara, I wish he would. Create the headlines by his play on the field opposed to what he says off thinking still a little more plan will less talk. A little more playing and a little less talking. What do you think about that? Mr. rose. I have no problem with the owner speaking facts, especially when he just invested in Dale. Not remember the last couple of years we have been talking in. The giants have been deciding whether they should invest in there really talented, wide receiver who shown a level of promise and potential that has been outstanding as it relates to his catches his yard. His touchdowns, however, then a team dynamic. When you decide to give him this level of financial commitment, which ownership did you also expect that guy to be less about me and invest in we, and when you see that trait continue to foster self after you already gave him a big deal. He's clearly frustrated. Now. Again, I'm not gonna put all of the giants issues on Dale Beckham junior. They don't have an offensive line. The defense hasn't been styled as you hope. They have not solve their issues at quarterback. They tried to ally manning last year, and then the fans in the media went into uproar, so they put it back out there and rightfully so drafter saquon Barkley but still didn't find a way to get a quarterback. So all of their issues aren't on odeal. But at some point being so talented in the locker room where you in a position of leadership, he has to find a way to guide his squad and have the focus be about being our best sales on Sunday, Monday and Thursday, not on antics, not on sideshows, not on things that become a distraction and snowball when you're losing. This is interesting because you said rightfully so they drafted saquon Barkley. But with the play of Eli manning his is obvious decline in performance. Don't you think if they could go back. Back in time they would have picked one of the great quarterbacks in this rookie class instead of saquon not at all. I got left for you. It was. He was right in New York. He would just playing for the jets. Why don't you go? If find a way to get teddy Bridgewater he was available Saint thing, give up too much to get him. He's a proven commodity. You have to necessarily draft a rookie order to lead the franchise going forward. They just need a quarterback in. So they didn't address that. I said this on this program a couple of years ago and people thought I was crazy, the old Dell Beckham and the giants relationship just happened at the wrong time for anybody. This paying attention to football win. Your wide receiver is not only your best player your leader in your highest paid player. That dynamic does not work in the NFL. It just does not play out. Jalen rose. Do you think the giants are one in five? They're not gonna make the playoffs to season his more or less of rebuilding season. Do you think they should trade ally manning. To a contender and get some pieces back. Well, the last time I checked, did you say they were one in five hours think that his trae value isn't as high as you would have hoped, especially after the season is already started, that was something that you should try to do around the draft. Maybe something you do in the offseason wants to seize start. You basically stuck with them, and here's what's going to happen..

"He ran far on the inside. They both were wrong. Yeah, it was pretty much a non story to me moving on. The warriors are going to have to pay if they want to keep winning keep moving or hit the brake. So we gotta hit the brakes on this Zach Lowe aren't is reporting. They Klay Thompson is not interesting in taking a hometown discount to stay with the warriors. We saw Kevin Durant do it. Why do you think Klay Thompson is making hard stance this early before? He's a free agent. Everybody's situation is different. And so when you're Steph curry and you're Kevin Durant, you make as much if not more money from endorsements away from the floor. When you're Klay Thompson, Draymond green. Green, those other two guys understand that to be the case. So therefore it's important for them to get paid by the that they're helping win championships. I believe ownership is going to do what it can to keep the roster until and have no problem paying Klay what he's worth. Is interesting. I think there's a little piece of the words front office that wouldn't mind if Kevin Durant left because it allows them to keep everybody else. Otherwise they're going to have to do some real decision making in the bay moving on. Jimmy Butler has a new team that he has an eye on as a trade partner keeping moving, hit the break. We don't keep it moving. We don't want. Amsterdam doesn't like being Amsterdam, keeping moving, hit the brakes, all we must hit the brakes. We wouldn't be Jalen into cope. Amsterdam is known as being a free living city. They have some sort of loose laissez faire policies when it comes to certain vices. And what that does is draw a lot of stag parties as they're called in Europe. Bachelor parties is what they're called here. And now Amsterdam is trying to cut off these groups of men coming in cavorting to their city and changing policies. What do you think about Amsterdam's new stance? The only way that can be valid is if they changed how they operate out of their coffee shops and some of the things they tend to sell in them Antill that is abolished. This is going to continue to take place and by the way they should embrace it, they should own it as great for tourism is great for conversation. People are going there to celebrate p. People are going there to have a good time. There are a lot of places in the country that people aren't going to celebrate a lot of places in the world that people aren't going as a vacation destination. Amsterdam is one. They should own it.

"You would think that Kevin Durant has learned his lesson when it comes to social media, but apparently he has not the latest is a little funny. It's just a little odd on the day in which Kevin Durant is starting his season with the warriors. There is this report that there was a tweet about Frank Miller kina starting small forward over Kevin Knox seems innocuous no big deal. You know, just a little small detail minutia about the Knicks starting lineup, a team won't even make the playoffs. Apparently, this was liked by Kevin Durant on Instagram. He liked it and then unliked allegedly. We don't know if this happened, but Jalen rose. Does Kevin Durant? Do this accidental? Does he do intentionally to make talk about it? He knows that we're all talking about him going to the Knicks. Why would he like something about the Knicks starting lineup, Kevin's in a unique situation. Because as he would say, he went to a team already had strong leadership. And the Golden State Warriors. So he doesn't have to be that guy for them. They wanna championship without him. They want seventy three games without him. However, they don't win the last two championships with autumn, which is while he was the finals MVP we continue to talk about his promise on the floor, but yet and still we always seem to find ways to talk about what he's doing on social media. And in this case, paying attention to the dynamics of the New York Knicks is not a surprise to anyone that's been paying attention to NBA gossip so to speak. Because I believe like many, if the warriors win three straight championships, Kevin Durant, dust c. n. would accept the allure of being quote, unquote king of New York. Of course, there's only one notorious big, put the day he signs to play with that squat. He becomes a hero in a large media market. He's from the east coast. It makes sense for a lot of reasons. So. So I'm not surprised that this happened, but if I'm hill just own it, don't unlike it. That's all the old. When you put up a picture when you put up a post, even if you don't love it, don't take it down. That's the white move. Don't unlike it, just own it. We see there's no going back once it already happens. It's just it's, he never, it's for me when I make a mistake. I don't make the mistake twice, but he keeps doing things like this at this point. I think he might be trolling us. He might be doing things like this, just so people like us talk about it on broadcast like this, and I'm falling for one hundred percent and I'm totally here for Kevin. Please continue to be confusing on social media because I love it and celebrate. We can't ignore the fact we call KP the Unicor who gave him that nickname, Kevin Durant. You brought that up here. It's a great point by Jalen rose. He's had his eye on his unicorns just before he was the unicorn. Jalen wears crazy close flashy clothes, gold chains designer sneakers. I have a different style. I wear more basic block colors. I might mix it up and wear pink sweater, but really I wear just kind of dark jeans, Chuck Taylor shoes, one colored shirt..

"So now when you come to that squat, you can't be the person that everybody now looks at it and say, wait a minute. What's different about the team? They lost the reason they lost by moutain. Why aren't they as good? It's mellow. So he doesn't want people to point the finger at him. Again, if the rockets are able to achieve their goals, I believe he still has a lot left on the offense of in again. He's not the first. Option. He's not. The second option. Capella in theory is going to be the third option officially probably going to be the fourth option. So it makes sense to bring him in off the bitch versus second line guys allow him to hopefully get himself going. He check style in certain gains with a matchups work. He'll be out there too close the game in a lot of matchups. However, he will not be out there to close the game and or they'll do a lot of substitutions as it relates to offense versus defense of switches, which is going to be frustrating for him. It's going to be interesting to see how that dynamic plays up. Glad you brought this up because with Erik Gordon karnal Anthony, both coming off the bench for the rockets. They really set themselves up for success during that stretch at the end of the first and started the second quarter. When you got the second unit in there, you played for years in the NBA like what is it like coming off the bench and pacing. Second unit in theory is just an opportunity for you to be productive and whether it's against frontline guys, second line guys, teams strategize against that as well. So what's going to happen is Surtees wanna take advantage of defensively, they're probably take out what if forwards early in the first quarter so that they can put them back in when he's going to come in the game. So teams are going to be paying attention to this dynamic is going to look a lot different for Carmelo because he's gonna literally like last year in a lot of cases, these standing around the three point line. He's improved as a three point, catching shooter, and he can't knock that shot down, but we know Carmelo Anthony to be at his best when it's mid range. Dr. King style pump fake Jeff step one or two dribbles pull up fifteen to eighteen feet. So it's going to be important for him to make his first couple of shots and or not get a couple of fouls or not get a couple of turnovers because some of those times his rope is going to be a lot shorter. Do you think dantonio is not starting Carmelo to start the season because he doesn't want to, oh, marquees, Chris out. So now put Camilla Anthony in the starting line and then take them out of the starting lineup. Is that his strategy here? Well, I'm not starting to because it's not what's best for the team is what he's thinking. If he felt like putting Anthony in the start line-up will help the team win and or perform an optimum level, then he will be starting. I agree with the decision and feel like at this point of his career, then he's best as a reserve, which is fine. But the keys will he be out there to finish. That remains to be seen. We will see as the rocket season starts right now. It's time for socially awkward..

So for him to rock, the shoes is definitely no surprise to me. Jalen rose is time for news. The matters. Not only have the warriors innovated ring technology. They've also innovated something very important to the basketball experience. The kiss Cam, we all know the kiss Cam, it's always fun. You watch. People can't watch. People don't kiss. It's a great part of the in game experience. However, the warriors are now doing this.

Are they taking it too far? Making the kiss Cam, a little creepy. They're making it a little bit creepy because here's what's going to end up happening. Now you're encouraging people to do outlandish things. And while it is a family fund, frilly environment that involves kids in clearly adult. You don't want the kiss Cam to become something where people are making out. Now, all of a sudden you're gonna have people with the extra. League locking sitting on laps, it's gonna become something that's two extra to the point where they now will take those people off of the camera when the kiss Cam actually takes place in certain situations. I totally agree. I think the kiss caves about the x. rated at the oracle, they're going to change this policy. I'm predicting right now. You make a lot of great predictions about the NBA I'm predicting about the NBA that they're going to change this kiss Cam policy because it's going to get a little risky. It's gonna get a little like a nighttime on Cinemax over there. The oracle in. Jalen rose. The rockets have an interesting thing going on. We all wanted whether or not Camilla Anthony would come off the bench or he would start and with marquee, Chris not available. I thought, oh, they'll probably start camello. We'll guess what they're not going to and Rachel Nichols sat down with Camilla Anthony to ask them about his role in coming off the bench, and here's what come on. No, what I can bring it on, no, would I still can do and what I still have. So my confidence from that standpoint, yeah, always have to say, I don't wanna come up too, but knowing that ahead of time and having those conversations and going game to game in understanding. Okay. We might need you to do this tonight. Remind you to do that tonight. I have a clear understanding of what my role is. What does he mean by a clear understanding of what my role is talking about last year, he's a future hall of Famer, but the league has a way to humble you and what in theory has happened for Carmelo career, though. He's had terrific success with USA basketball and won a ton of gold medals, his NBA career. He's not had the necessary. Label of being able to lead a winning team as its best player. He wasn't able to do it in New York and all of the fans let them hear about it. So once you go to, okay, see on paper, it looks like, oh, it's going to be a big three. It's going to be rough going to be PG. It's going to be mellow, and then he was not able to produce at an elite level. So now when you go to Houston is all about reinventing yourself. They had the best record in the west without him. James harden has not to lead that team without CPA three and without him for that matter..

"We actually text back and forth with one another one Though though. I also got invited to come talk to the Philadelphia seventy Sixers basketball team about none other than social media. So I'm not surprised in theory that he wanted to deflect from the fact that they got beat by eighteen points versus the Boston Celtics and make it about a sized show. I wasn't the Jalen out there trying to junk over him. I'm not the issue at all. So. It's all low. Appreciate the show. We'll see how to season progresses. I thought it was fun. It was just like, we lost to the Celtics were Owen one, but you know what? Jalen rose at eighty one point scored on us. I'm gonna take shots at him. We didn't out to default, make fun of Jalen rose admitted entire career out of it. Moving onto the second game between the words thunders, I really did not expect this to be close the thunder without Westbrook and Roberson Adams did play, but he was hobbled a bit by an injured back. Katie showed up and showed out Steph, curry had thirty two. It was a typical game from the warriors, but the thunder looked pretty good. Keeping a close Reese apprised by how close this game was at the end. I wasn't surprised and the reason why, and I've talked about this. At length for anybody that will listen to the Marcus cousins comes back. There's going to be avoided at the five spot playing most minutes for the Golden State Warriors. They just relying on a lot of young players to take up those minutes and give that level of production. And also Draymond green is going to have to ease into his game. I'm noticing that teams have dared him to shoot in particular from three point range because you're trying to pick your poison at the percentages. You clearly we're rather have him shoot versus curry, Thompson or Durant. So those are the team still needs to iron out, but I was impressed with the effort that okay, see play with Paul, George in particular in the second half, happy to see dinner Schreuder, play quality minutes and be really productive. So I talked about, okay, see being a legitimate team, not on the warriors level clearly, but in that secretary of teams that could possibly upset. A team like Houston and or make the goal State Warriors work the way I saw them play without Russell Westbrook confirmed that and they were without Westbrook because you know me, I love the drama. I'm always here for the drama, interpersonal stuff and things like that. But I didn't think I would get it with this particular game. Put I did Westbrook was on the end of the bench in civilian clothing, rather rather understated attire for Westbrook. And there was one play where Stephen Adams had the ball in the post Westbrook was clearly wolfing Durant and Adams, and then watch what happens here. Durant swats at this stares down Westbrook Westbrook's in in. He's in street clothes and he's still involved in the trash. Talk between these two, do you think there's legitimate bad blood? They're kind of like friendly ribbing each other. They just freely ribbon each other as former teammates, and for those that have been paying attention, their level of discord and or beef has been squashed along time ago. They were even seeing spotted kicking it at a gig. This off. Season. So it's not that they have an issue with one another anymore. I think that's water under the bridge, but the gets lost about that play first and foremost, Katie fouled atoms. Okay. Okay. Second, what ends up happening? You know how this works when Adams was posted them up Russell? Probably on the satellite malls in the house. Put him put them in the bag. That's exactly what happy. And so Katie got the swipe, of course, he'd go to look over it to bench and talk a little trash to Russell no harm, but that definitely was a fall. Oh, you know what? That was. The pet entry pass. You can't post Stephen Adams twenty feet from the basket. He's not that player up there and she pets come on. So last night, the warriors got their banner and they got their rings. But this year the rings are a little bit different because when you win as many championships, as the words you remix it, so they have a twist off top. It's like a Coors light can that you are like bother. You can twist up and then it's reversible. Jalen, rose..

"The NBA season is upon us Mr. rose. We had two games last night and they were both intriguing. The first one put tween the Sixers, and the Celtics was full of highlights like this one featuring Jason Tatum accidentally going off the backboard between legs. Ben Simmons to Joel Embiid. It was a fun game to watch the Celtics lead throughout, but I have to say the most interesting part of the whole, what you just saw kyri Irving and Gordon Hayward the two stars that we expect to propel the Celtics into championship contention where a combined six for twenty six from the field, the Celtics one. They lead through out, but were you surprised by the underwhelming performance by Irving and Hayward? I wasn't surprised at all. You got to take into account that they're rejoining team that made into the conference finals without them and be a team like Philadelphia. Who has two cornerstone players in m b insinuates. So now you integrate them back into the lineup, Gordon Hayward coming off a gruesome injury and Kyrie Irving. Obviously as the primary ball handler is going to take time to us everyone to their strength. But the impressive thing is how they still beat the brakes off Philly. In those two guys didn't have particularly great eagerness, it really was surprising to me to watch it. Go down like that. And again, it was just another reminder. We've talked in the preseason about how Tatum in Brown and Moore's would react to getting less minutes right now. It looks like Tatum's team more than anybody else's. Are you impressed with how Tatum started the season? I'm truly impressed with how he continues to progress as a player. He can shoot three. He can get his own shot off the dribble. He can finish out the who he's competitive on the defensive in using when you're taking number three in the draft like he and Jalen Brown work, you're going to be the face of the franchise, but the Celtics. Have so many weapons on their roster, and they have so many assets as a release to future draft picks that it's allow those guys to ease themselves into their greatness. Four, Jason Tatum. I'm not surprised that he's taking his quantum leap in his second year. It kind of makes me feel bad how they really fleeced the Philadelphia seven just think about this. They not only trade it Marquel fulls in theory for Tatum. They also gave up take that they could take full number one overall. And so when I see him have a pedestrian game and Tatum shine the way he does. It just reminds me Philadelphia has a long way to go to get on the level of the Boston Celtics. I was watching the Celtics team last night thinking myself, this team that is so deep with players could have three first round draft picks this year. Three first round draft picks this year. It's crazy to think about. And a lot of people look at this Celtics Sixers matchup is a potential eastern con. Spinal preview and call it a rivalry. Joel Embiid was asked about that. Exactly. And here's how he responds. A lot of our. Oh, no, I could against them, but it's pretty bad. They're kick out. So this is not a robbery and bashing. I saw he's got a new no work to figure. I love that from him beat. He's like, this is not a rivalry like we need to win some games against them for this to be a rivalry. What do you think about him be? He's written facts, ELD facts and the obvious anytime you lose to the Boston Celtics in a playoff series, and they don't have kyri Irvine, Gordon, Hayward, and then the next season they're going to bring them back and compete that says that you have a long way to go. So I'm not surprised by what he said. He just speaking facts. I loved it too, and they do have a long way to go. It's the beginning of the season. They still have. I forgot how many games they have left will be took to Twitter after the game as he always does. And here's what he tweeted take a look. He said tough start, but Jalen rose more to go hashtag. The process has Eighty-one wait a second. Wait a second. Did Joel take shots at you game. Like, what are you had to Jalen? I think we have a weird relationship. I covered him when he was in college and believe it or not..

"Today. And now Jalen and Jacoby on ESPN. Yup. It's Jalen rose. What doubt? I'm David Jacoby. Cool. Centerstage on though Mike, putting it on wax, it's the The new. new. What do we do. They. Of course, we're gonna talk about the NBA season debut in last night with two intriguing games. We're gonna talk about the owner talking about owed l. Becca, we have a cultural or regional segment. It is women's crush Wednesday, the so much to get to Jalen. There is brand new information about a topic that's very important to the two of us. I I asked asked her. her. Drake went on the shop and basically hinted that it was Konya west told push t about his baby, mama drama. Now push t went on the Joe button podcast, and he said that it was Drake's producer forty. That gave the information to a woman that he was sleeping with that then gave the mation to push t. What do you think about this pillow? Talk on wrong. Well, anytime there's a beef and or disregards the information, especially if it's exclusive has to come from somewhere. That's why doing your homework is really important and being a student of the person that you're about to engage against in. So that's just the art of war. Some of the best disruptive all time is q no vastly NAS ether. The list goes on and on goal songs contain information that people really didn't understood exist it until the song came up, and that's just how it works. So I'm not surprised at all of where the information came from. It just goes to show that you can't trust anybody because there's there's forty. You know, he's he's low key. He's behind the scenes. He's just living his regular life. And you know, he gives information to some woman that he trusts that he thinks he's going to write a die for him. And then she goes and gives it to the enemy. Why? And Drake is learning this because you can tell from the shot that he thought it was cognac and Drake is learning this for the first time. How's it conversation between him and forty? Go. It's a little off. But I don't think that Drake found out that he potentially got the information from forty on an interview that happened today. Once that information becomes something for public consumption, I think you find out where it came from at that point. The crazy thing is he got the info from him and he still slammed him in the record as well. It's interesting, and we also have this in a similar topic. Cardi b. has apparently put on wax some disparaging remarks about Nicki Menaj. We all know what happened in New York fashion week between the two of them and Cardi b.'s team according to TMZ is split on whether or not she should engage Nikki on wax if Cardi b. called your phone and said, Jalen rose. I trust your opinion. You're, oh, gee, I love Jalen and Jacoby. You always give great advice to our collars. It is women crush Wednesday. So I have a question. Should I go on wax against Nicki? Menaj? What advice would you give her? I'll say, don't do it. We had this exact conversation about meek mill in Drake, what ends up happening is. These battles get settled for public consumption, and it's not like a boxing match where there's an official or referee at the end of the bout going to hold somebody's hand in the air, declared them the winner. So what ends up being the determining factor versus who won and who lost some people going to say the actual content of a record. Some people say the success artists, some people going to say, record sales. There's no true way in this dynamic to get a winner based on two of the top female artists to have ever done it. I just think that it may alienate some of her fans and it's unnecessary roughness. Oh, a good, good point, unnecessary roughness it's like we already know the l. came out each other in real life at fashion week event you through shoot some bars gonna do like once you throw the shoe. It's already out there. We'll keep tabs on both those stories right now. The people..
