"Healthy. Gotta tell you. It's hard to take an athlete seriously. His navy spencer. Dinwiddie he he. He didn't pick doesn't matter. I mean if if you're if you've got up a group of babies and one of his name's spencer dinwiddie are you saying that's it that's going to grow up being nba player or is he going to grow up to be an accountant. That's an accountant yet. Din dinwiddie o'donnell and and And farkas sounds like an accounting food. I like just. It's hard to take them seriously with you. Need to change. His name is big. Issue is just staying healthy I'm looking at the year. He averaged twenty. He averaged twenty point. Six points per game in twenty nineteen twenty twenty okay so that was That included some of the bubble. He averaged sixteen point. Eight points per game off the bench in two thousand eighteen twenty nineteen. We see if that was the year. He had some big games against he had He had some big games against washington in the twenty eighteen. twenty nineteen season. And i just. I'm just reminded of something. The last there to sporting events. I went to In the week prior to everything shutting down in march of twenty twenty tommy. I went to I went actually three. I went to maryland basketball games. I went to the game against michigan state and then the final game as it would turn out against michigan where they clinched a share of the big ten title. I also with our good friend harley from window. Nation went to the wizards brooklyn nets game which was on february twenty. Sixth of two thousand twenty. I just pulled up the box score as our member harley had very good seats for that came. we were sitting on the floor for that game in spencer spencer. Dinwiddie got really hot at one point during the game now it shows that he had eighteen points in this game in avert had thirty four. I do remember that night. I think tommy sheppard for from my point of view knows what he's doing and gets the benefit of the doubt until until he builds up a resume of failure like the guy he replaced. Yeah i agree with that. It's weird because the nba is just so different and evaluating nba. General managers is just different than evaluating nhl or nfl or mlb. General managers It's just too hard to win championships. It's just too hard to even get to an nba championship so an nba general manager. Who's getting his team. You know to pushing the fifty win mark and getting into the playoffs year in and year out without you know a top five player Is doing pretty damn good job. So we'll see. I mean time. We'll tell on tommy sheppard. I like tommy a lot. And i think that he's done a pretty good job. Look just getting out of the john wall contract and then getting out of the russell westbrook contract and parlaying all of that into you know what they got. Back from the lakers indispensable. Dinwiddie is a pretty good job from where they were. They were not going to win an nba title. They weren't even going to push anywhere near contending for an nba title or even in eastern conference title with the way they were constructed. So yeah i agree with you. I think so far. So good I'm rooting for tommy He really is One of the really good guys In the area In an executive in an executive position i The nats tommy. You know we were. We did do our podcast at the last podcast after all of those trades. I think the only one we missed that day was the lester trade They've they've won a couple of games. They blew another one in the bottom of the ninth last night which hurt They're actually. They're still in the thick of this race. You do realize that right there. Only six and a half yes. yes absolutely. The mets stink right now. I mean they're five games over five hundred and they got a two and a half game lead on the phillies last night. Though they blew you know a big lead in a blue. A big lead in the ninth gave up five. Runs in the top of the ninth with that bullpen. Which you know had swear on it and then a couple of dudes that i don't really know but they started this guy gray one of the guys they got back in the In the sell off all the dodgers straight he was dodgers top pitching prospect tv lead becomes the nationals top pitching prospect and He pitched okay from from the box score. I didn't watch the game You catch five innings. Gave up one run. You know So that's pretty good for your first time out. He you know from all county had his composure. Didn't seem overwhelmed by the moment His first name is joe. Zaia i imagine how you pronounce it. Does i agree but Apparently some people said he went by the nickname. Joe joe and He cleared up on social media last night where he said well. You know close friends and teammates my call each jill but nobody else should use that everybody else should call josaia. Okay well you earn it. He got to earn the right for him to allow you to call him by his. Which i which. I posted.

"This this is a team that built around. Let's see what happens with With but with levin and morgan and other guys they had plenty of offense. They just couldn't stop anybody and lonzo ball's going to bring defense alex caruso buses ass on defense. They've brought in a couple of guys. Who are going to bring a certain tenacity to that team for billy donovan and i think that alone is an upgrade. Plus ball is an elite playmaker. They didn't have that kobe. White is more of a shooter. Score than playmaker. And they've got maybe a little bit of a glut at guard right now. So let's see how that shakes out. I'm not even guaranteeing their a playoff team. I mean you're talking about six seven eight somewhere in there. I mean the locks of the playoffs philly yet to be seen with simmons and all that still but phillies in philly brooklyn. Milwaukee knicks hawks. Heat and i- celtics still. That's seven teams right there. The wizards probably taking somewhat of a step back. Maybe the pacers. Maybe not though or maybe not i think. Those pieces fit the wizards better than russell. Westbrook did especially if the spencer dinwiddie deal comes together as it seems like. It's likely i mean dinwiddie. Rio mkaku joins reaction amora some young guys on that roster caveats. Coa pope is a battery shooter. They might be better. They might be the rare version of a team. Where one star plus a really good supporting cast is better than two stars. Maybe the pacers underachieved another team that underachieved in the east last year. The pacers should be back in the mix. The hornets are young team on the rise the raptors. I don't know which direction they're going right now. Probably was that probably south probably not. Yeah probably i think you'll keep if wind up with goran. Dragic spar that deal. I wouldn't be surprised. Dragic rerouted to say dallas or another team out there. So there's there's a bunch of teams that are in the running for maybe seven through ten. But i i mean i'd vote pencil in with the celtics. As as the seventh out of the seven i would pennsylvania seven teams already in the in the playoffs. Now granted we get to play and again so maybe maybe we should be talking about you know through ten but anyway the bulls are in the mix but we thought the bulls were in the mix of few times the last years and they continually disappoint. Yeah well. I mean their spending. That's what's what's noticeable this team and have by the way. Have we gone fifty minutes without. Actually talking about the lakers. Other than being apart system the lakers feel like we because the west portrayed happened bid last week. We kind of missed the window on that. But like the lakers. I hesitate to get to to react too strongly about the lakers. I don't think they're done yet. They still have.

"Wage. And that could use somebody like a Smith, right? You know, I think he would be your great sit. There Patty Mills. Of course, if if they, they're one of the teams that. Yeah. Who the hell knows, what happens with Dennis Schroder thought? I'd see him. You know, you know, I never campaign for people to get fired but he's going to have a tough conversation with his age and I imagine after turning turning that down or his agents going to be a guy told you to sign off for years eighty four million right deal or however that went. So yeah, I really don't know what he's going to do cuz it's Spurs don't need a point guard, OKC already had them and they don't need another yard. It's, I mean the Knicks maybe, but they've only got seven. Oh yeah, I'm in sign-and-trades. Don't seem to be there. So shorter might be a guy who's on the, you know, non-taxpayer mid-level somewhere. You probably only for a year is my guess and then try to get back into the market and get back to a better place. But yeah, you know, definitely miss played, it's handy. This is dead. Been talking about this for weeks now, we've talked with us that there were more point guards out there than there were Landing spots and at some point yep. They you know, for play musical chairs, the music was going to stop and there were going to be some guys left off when the money ran out and that it could very well be Dennis, sure. That if you went through ranking, these guys. Hey, would you rather have Spencer Dinwiddie or Dennis shoot? I think most people say Spencer Dinwiddie. Would you rather have Chris Paul? Would you rather have lungs a boss? Would you rather you all these other point? Guards are in the market? Dennis Schroder was kind of the low, man on the totem pole, and that's exactly how this has played out so far. And I've, I'm having a hard time coming up with a landing spot for him, but this month will see where this goes. But, yeah, it's almost like a mini Nerlens Noel situation. If you think back to when you turn down that deal with the Dallas Mavericks, that was like, seventy two million or something. Dennis Schroder. Same thing, turned down for years. Eighty, four million acres and now doesn't seem to have an obvious landing spot. He'll be somewhere but he's he's not getting that deal back that he that he had before. So it's birth Interesting to see what kind of starting job. That's who. I mean, that's the only thing you're maybe the Pelicans look at him, right? But I'm guessing with graham, Carroll Louis and the catalogs and a walk. They probably be kind of, all right?.
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things.

L.A. Is Rumored to Be Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie’s Preferred Destination
"Dinwiddie, who missed almost all the season tours. A CL is interested in signing with the Clippers this offseason now believe he's got a $12 million out that with the Nets, which you'll undeniably exercise, you're gonna get a few bucks. The Clippers will be well above the salary cap next year. But there are some maneuvers that they can do to make the move work out.

We'll reconvene with him but I think we certainly got the the message of very clearly a spencer. Spencer I think you're back which which is a pretty good resurrection here. Thank you you. I don't know if if we didn't hear the last. Twenty seconds of whatever you were saying. Just that. You don't really there's so much that you don't know in terms of not just remember it's not about what the programs do, and it's not about the universities around the program to it's about what these overlapping communities are all trying to do together or in some cases not trying to do together it is it is a nearly impossible task to get zero percent infection rate with something this contagious that is transmitted from merrily through the air. Based on what we know that's nearly impossible in an ideal situation in places where you actually could lockdown a place. What's GonNa Happen when you have opened communities? And universities with high levels of social contact. And a football program trying to exist in the middle of that. To me nineteen cases that seems that seems like, yeah that could totally happen. In fact that might be that might be good. That might be doing well, considering how hard task this So it should censor before you go. I don't know I've kept you. What what are you forecasting here I mean I think. I'm hearing it But what what do the next? Two months. Look like in your estimation. They, look like this. You know there those like postponements and they look like cancellations and they look like conflicting accounts of how many cases are broken out on a team and how we're all counting them and they're all going to add up to the same thing which is eventually given the rules we've set we're going to see more more postponements we're going to see more cancellations. And we're GONNA see more student newspapers busted news because they're they're one of the few outlets actually left on the ground. You know after after seeing news outlets decimated in this economy of WHO's left actually do this work stood newspapers they're still there and they're still local.

"spencer " Discussed on Back To Back
"Living this. It's it's there's there's no jarring experiences that could throw off your kind of mental state. Yeah and that that makes sense to you. Know you started off talking about how you get itchy. If you haven't made music show probably part of it is continuing those routines. Yeah that's touring. There's no routine when your tour in but you can make routines and you can find your flow like when you're doing it like I very actually do have a very specific routine. If it's the you know if I ever lobby call whereafter airport at twelve thirty also my alarm thirty minutes before then. I have all my stuff all over my room. I have enough time to shower to brush my teeth. Get ready packed all my stuff. Put it all back in the exact same way. I left it like the day before. Go to the airport. Do all that stuff go to the next city unload everything the exact same way I did last time. And it's really helps my sanity. Yeah that's beautiful. I have a similar thing that I've never thought about it in that formalize. But I what I take away from what you just said to is. You know you're describing this sort of beautiful state of flow where you're just you know flowing for lack of a better word from one thing to the everything works. Everything's working but in order for that to happen. You have to prepare right and you'd have hopefully organization and and being on top of everything like that's why I'm I'm always involved in all the planning emails like where my management could do a lot of the stuff but I love to be involved in all the planning and the and the the travels in the hotel and the flights and this and that and Carson and 'cause I wanNA make sure that it works for two to maintain the best flow state from life. That's beautiful man. Yeah it's I it's funny because I relate to a lot of what you're saying but I never thought about it. I'm GonNa have to think more about that but while I do that final question And thank you for doing this. I've really enjoyed absolutely. This has been amazing. Superfund Last thing again. You don't have to think about too hard just looking for a moment a time in your life when in a moment music really meant something to you really had a deep impact on you and that's as broad as it gets but you in any other is this after the first answer is like every moment since I've been alive like there's there's something that's happening and but I don't know something that just came to my head recently. I think it was in March April or no February or March of twenty nineteen I played a set in New York at a club called analog and it was the day it was daylight savings day. So it's like we gain an extra hour and I played a started like twelve thirty or twelve. Maybe it was twelve and I played until five or five thirty because it was technically a four four and a half hour set and I only played my music and it was sold out. It was like whatever eight hundred people and. I played my music the entire set. I didn't play a single other persons music and it was full at five or five thirty or whatever it was and it was in that moment I was like Oh my God like this. Is My dream. Come true right here. I just played only my music and I have nothing against playing other people's music. I'm probably going to tonight. But it was just like for whatever reason that day. I was just like I'm only play music tonight and it was four four and a half hours of just music and the room was full. From the moment I went onto the moment I came off it was full and it was sold out and I was just like I am so thankful that this happened. That was a huge moment for my life. Because it's like yeah. We play a lot of really really solid shows but but plane for four and a half hours of just my stuff that was like with to a sold out crowd. That was a very powerful moment for me because I know people are leaving their and I helped their lives in whatever way I did. And they escape their whatever they had to escape and it was. It was everything from my mind directly to their minds so that was a very very special moment in my career and my life like that was one of the first time. I'm just not the first time but it was just a major point in my life where I'm like what I'm doing is actually impacting people and what I'm doing is kind of work in for for me and for for fans right now. I love that and and being able to sort of recognize it as it's happening I think is really rare magic. He was one of those you know. I think dig lead one said at some. Sometimes when the Star's aligned and that magic is in the air stairs there are some of those nights as a DJ. You know like where everything is perfect. The crowd is perfect. The VIBE is perfect. Your state is perfect. Everyone's happy everyone's smiling. Never going to get time and now is definitely one of those. They're they're not rare but they're special.

"The indy route. So that was a concerted decision. Let's go this way because they want you to be here and you'll always be here if you take this next role right so it was not a lot of money. Involved with independent films always had a shoestring budget. And I mean you're lucky if it was a shoestring was really dental floss But it was the experience that was I mean. I wouldn't change any facet of those decisions by. That's so interesting because as I say a lot of actors have told me that it's not like you win the Oscar that gave you a blank check. And you're the star of Superhero movie and everything's Okay for the rest of your like your status. Fighting Work for these roles do yeah and then hit more on the studio side hidden figures. Of course comes along. You're nowadays for another Oscar. That like Madame. Cj I think Brought to light for a lot of the country a story about African American women that the country didn't know win was shocked. It didn't know. Was it gratifying to you to see these women that you all portrayed become sort of national figures absolutely and what was interesting it there the female They're black and white. They called him. Female computers and I when I went to meet the producer about the project. The help was historic fiction. I thought also you know these about these three black women who help in the space race as always historical fiction because surely we would know this story and when I found out that there was only one survivor or actually there was there. Were two one woman. Her story was covered in the film. I knew that we needed to to right that wrong that the omission from all the stories about NASA. You saw John Glenn's name you. We should've known Catherine It was gratifying and to be able to share those moments with Their families It was pretty special two weeks ago. I think on our Sunday show we do segment called life well lived and we did a tribute to Catherine and we did of course from hidden figures which is a tribute to you guys. Because if I'd done that without the film that was all I never knew that story interesting so you put them in the elevator place in the history books so that's a pretty good legacy for you all to. They did the work. We just got to be part of the storytelling. Yes I've got to ask you about the the film that my kids WanNa see. But I know the hub nightmares forever. So they can't see it just Ma last year long. Now you're talking about how you choose your roles. Do some indy here. Tell me about Ma. I know tate was involved again. So that was probably part of the draw. What did you love about that character? He wanted to be a part of it. Was Breaking the Convention for me. I mean prior to I think at the same time that I was filming mile. Lupita Yongbo was doing us But I never seen a black woman in a lead role in Harvey'll and I thought well I'm GonNa have fun and because I love this genre And she was She was one of those interesting people I've ever played. Put it interesting interesting. Yeah she was interested in all my ten year old son who said he wanted to see it all. I had to show them the trailer whose allow the trade. The trailer was enough for him. Was that cool though to get back together with tate. Sort of you know started a time to kill and had the potluck dinners and you've found each other again along the road. You have a great partnership. Yeah we do have a great partnership. It was a lot of fun. I think you know filming and Mississippi Like Right. Basically you could throw a stone from his front door and we just it was. It was wonderful working with Jason Blum. It was it was really it was it was and I understand recently discovered the MOM memes. I literally like my agent sent me all these like what is this. I don't even know what names are. But it was so funny and right now. We're going through a tense time in this country and I thought you know what this is making me laugh. I am going to post these and then we started a contest for the funniest mommy because I mean Ma yes. She's a she's for people. Don't know that they'll plug mas face and there's one particular face they use she's making and they'll put it into totally inappropriate like the movie poster but it's mom instead the Irish mom Irish. The Irish Ma. My favorite is rocket. Ma Oh rocket man. That's good. Yeah it was crazy gladly. Good you discover those creative people on the Internet will be happy that you found them. I L look for me but not just mom means. I like what is amazing? I don't even understand what it is but I just think it's you go. You're into it. Stick around to hear more from Octavia Spencer on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast. Welcome back to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast now. More of my conversation with Octavia Spencer. So I'm curious just generally what this level of. Let's call it the last decade of achievement for you has meant for you personally. Just be famous. Person to put it bluntly like what's it like. In a way you weren't fifteen years ago if you walk outside here everyone on the side of people know you. What is that like for you? It's kind of crazy. Actually I I probably myself because my life is still say My career is different but you know I still have the same friends and they still know that. I'm going to whenever they cook. I don't Cook. I'm GONNA come over when they invited bring tupperware and take leftovers. It's like bring nothing and you just take it home with. They don't want me to bring anything. It's like a bag salad and everybody things in a bag salad even organic So I I do. The dishes do contribute there and and I help them by not having a lot of leftovers in their refrigerator. That very helpful of you to take off. So what you're saying is fame. Hasn't changed at all not at all. This is still odd to you though if you walk through an airport and have somebody shout at you eight is. It's a little crazy because you know I live with me every day and I. I don't take it for granted I certainly grateful but it's so strange because I live in these giant sunglasses. I love him and I don't know how they know it's me and I asked my makeup artist doesn't can you tell me she said it's the chair. Bec- face at all a book is going for here. I know you've got along the head. He's let you go but I'm curious what what's next for you because you make such interesting choices including the latest series Madame. Cj independent movies and horror movies. Are there things out there on the horizon? Maybe through your production company or something that you're thinking about doing that might surprise people. Well I'm really excited to be in partnership with apple on a series Truth be told and we're going to start our second season It's really fun playing detective because that's who I am in real life. I remember I solve mysteries. Have to have a mystery every night like forensic files and so I get to be closer to someone who's similar to me. Well she's not really similar. She's Kinda shady in some areas but just curious leary. Let's just say we have the same curiosity so I'm excited about that and I'm really excited about being a producer about creating opportunities for new voices to be heard really excited for that. Look forward to whatever you're doing next. It's always good so nice to see you. It's nice to see you have a beer. I'm sorry I started crying like that was beautiful. Oh no did not expect that in. My Mom's birthday is coming up on. The nineteenth literally might didn't realize some art. Yes she said. That's your seventeen so yeah I stopped counting because sometimes it's still fresh like her and sometimes it's especially when you're that young you that young you're really is life changing and I don't wish it on anybody approach. You know. My mom was as Bossy as I. Am you know knocking on the doors every day? You GotTa hire me or what so I? I just imagine her up there working on my behalf. You know my daughter's down there and he's trying to be an actor. I don't even know what that is but you know. Can we just move her to the front of the line?

"I didn't even did it for your mom and when I graduated we'll be was filming in Africa and her brother. Clyde worked on the film and Apathy. God I'm so touched by that. Even the mention of it that moment so long ago still in there. Yeah yeah she sent word to me that she was proud of me I Graduate College and then I saw you know when we were doing the press for the help and it was like old home week. And we've been inseparable. I totally know how you feel. Not at that level but when someone you admire and look up to take the time to care about you invest in you encourage you. Yeah maybe push you a little bit. Yeah it changes the course of your life and it sounds like what we did that for you she did so you go off to. Auburn War Eagle. And then once you're through and graduated a time to kill it comes along but again you weren't you sort of nudged your way onto you already working there as a production assistant but how did you go from being a production assistant all of a sudden. You're in the movie while the interesting thing is after working on The long walk home. I started working a little bit more Around on other projects in the area and the directors would always ask me to audition for something and I would turn them down and was working on a time to kill and Joel Schumacher did not ask me to read for anything and I was thinking. Why is he asking me to read at WANNA turn down? And I didn't ask and I had to ask and that was me. I think it made me commit to that dream because there was a big part of me. That was afraid. I was practical. We had a practical life and Acting was about as impractical as one could get And I think when I asked Joe to read For this woman who started this riot he looked at me and he said you know your face is too sweet. You can read for Sandy's nurse and then he gave me the part and we filmed my part the very last day of shooting and they gave me this big trailer because everybody had wrapped. It was so amazing day was on the doors. Nobody in drought star so fabulous thought. I've made it I've made it. I've got a trailer. Somebody paid me so now. You're in a movie now. It's real right so now you're an actor and you're gonNa Chase that Dream Museum. La meet up with your buddy tate. Taylor who was sort of thread through your life. What were those early years out in Hollywood for? Everybody knows the story of the struggling actors. That what you went through as well. Oh we did we struggled. I mean we borrowed the same five hundred. The wonderful thing about actors its ebb and flow for someone at that point so we would borrow the same five hundred bucks. You know job. Hey can you can borrow five hundred bucks. I need to pay my rent and then I book a job. And he's like hey he's money bucks back buddy lose so great because we also would have potlucks because everybody was broke. Melissa McCarthy Allison Janney I. We have a very tight knit group in. We're still very close to this day. You must look back and then you didn't have any money and we've all been there in those early years but with such fondness before any of you had really made it. Yeah and now to see what you've done now it must be wonderful to just catch up with them about that we laugh. I just did a project with Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone and we laughed every single day reminiscing about who we were back then and and what we've been able to accomplish it's pretty spectacular and you were working all that time about fifteen years. I love because I've talked to so many actors who are told that they're an overnight success and they go oh overnight to you fifteen years for your overnight success definitely. I check that box.

Wherever you're listening right now and subscribe welcome back to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast now. More of my conversation with Octavia Spencer. So when you when you were cast in the help by Taylor. Did you know immediately that that was going to be something special and different and perhaps a big moment for you in your career? I knew that he went to bat for me and he was. It was not a first time director but it was a first studio film. And that's a lot of responsibility and he fought for me to get that role so I knew I couldn't let him down And I didn't I. They would all go out after work and I would be working on the lies. The scenes the next day I just I knew that I had to live up to the expectations and It was special because we were all friends and Brunson Green. Was you know one of the producers and tape directed it and Allison was in it. He actually had apart from Elizabeth. Carthy but she was actually filming on on her show. I think it was gilmore girls at the time or the Christina applegate one. I can't know right. But she was filming. He could he. He was putting us all in the movie. How cool is that? It was from the potluck. Dinners to an Oscar winning movie together. That's wild and then as the as the buzz for you in that movie grew and grew and grew and it sort of became clear. This is like the movie of the moment and now there might be a chance that I could win some awards. Maybe an Oscar get to wear one of those dresses and go on the red carpet and do all that. What was that like for you as an actor to have arrived? At that moment I I had always dreamed. I mean every actors practices to ask your speech in the mirror and don't let them. Is that true. Yeah because they deny they deny I. Did you know I remember you know talking into my hairbrush teenager but I those were expectations that I never really allowed myself to have. Because I didn't want the disappointment I was just excited that I got to be a part of the project and When those nominations came in it was very humbling and very gratifying But I was proud because I felt that I had Done right by Tate I you know and and we supported. Each Other was pretty magical. Do you remember the sound of your own name? When it was called at the Oscars not really I just remember it was like it was very odd because it was like an out of body experience. I was in slow motion and I remember Christian Bale. It looked as if he was forming vowel. And I'm thinking what time just really came to a standstill and knees locked up. So when he when he wanted to get up to the stage my knees wouldn't be so now I'm thinking Oh God I'm going to fall. I'M GONNA fall in front of a Billion People Watch. It was crazy but I don't. I don't actually remember being up on stage. I watched the tape later. I taped it but it was pretty funny. I just remember. Please don't let me fall down. Please don't let me fall down. You didn't better that you stayed up and you gave a good speech. Were there any pieces of the teenage speech in the Mir with the hairbrush in the actual speech? Because I totally don't remember giving a speech. I doubt happy to get through it at that point. I've talked to a lot of actors who Won Oscars talked Viola Davis a couple of months ago about what it means and how it changes your life and I think she said of course. It opens doors in many ways. That weren't there but it doesn't mean everything suddenly becomes automatic from there right. You still fight for some roles you make typecast or you're still pushed in the roles that people remember from the Oscar movie and they weren't you to play that they want you to play that role. You feel that way too. I at first. It was funny because after we wrapped the help every role I was being offered was a mate and I didn't mind the fact that they were made it was just that I had displayed the best may character ever written in my in my mind but people have an idea and a perception and they liked. Put you in those boxes but I had a wonderful team at W. me Who thought outside the box for me and so we went the route of independent films just to do unique stuff. And that's where I got to work with now Academy Award Winner Director Bong Jun Ho Snow Piercer. And I got to work with you. Know a lot of young directors Ryan Kugler Fruitvale station but we went.

This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us. My guest is Octavia Spencer. And she's now starring in the new Netflix Limited series self made inspired by the life of Madame CJ Walker and it will be on Netflix. Starting Friday I want to ask you about your film fruitvale station which is based on the two thousand nine shooting of an unarmed black man. Oscar grant at Bart Station a Bay Area Transit Station in Oakland. Who was shot by a Bar? Police officer you played the young man's mother who feel so guilty guilty after she shot after he shot be the mother had said. Don't drive take the train. It'll be safer and of course he's he's killed on the on the train. Did this story have special significance for you? It did I had a have nephews. And I just remember when I would go home For Christmas backed Alabama I would always worry as they grew up And we'd go out with their friends. I would always get a pit in my stomach and I imagine that most black mothers do have those same feelings And when I read the script of Fruitvale station I knew that I had to play that role Not just for myself Being an aunt but for all black MOMS who Have that pitner stomach. Every time their child leaves the house. The film had such resonance because there was so much going on that related to the film after the film came out. You know Michael Brown was shot. Other young men were shot ways that the whole nation knew about it. 'cause it became national stories. Sometimes it was captured on cell phone of video and awareness of what was happening T you know two young black men who were unarmed and getting shot by police like awareness of the at a really grew especially among white people who weren't as aware of it as African Americans were and I wonder if like. In retrospect that made the film even more meaningful for you because it had such a social and political resonance absolutely I hoped that by telling Oscar. Grant's story that Gun violence and The relationships between young black men and policemen Those types of of instances where violence occurred would diminish But sadly I think I think the impact for me. It felt as if it it. Things escalated And it's it's a club. I think No one wants to be a part of A mother who loses a son to Police brutality or gun violence Yeah I it's one of those projects that will always be special to me. You helped save the film. The film had run into funding. You help rescue it from the funding problems. What were you able to do well? That movie was Made for the budget was nine hundred thousand dollars and one hundred and fifty thousand dollars They they lost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars which was a lot of money if if for a nine hundred thousand dollar budget so what I did was I put in Some money and I called You Know Catherine stock it in a couple of people that I she. She wrote the novel the help the help. Yes and she invested in a couple of other friends and we We made sure that we replace that. One hundred fifty thousand dollars And I also they had me in this amazing hotel I just I just sort of I don't think I allow them to pay me. We just put that money back into the pot And they gave me an executive producer credit Forest whittaker and Nina Yang. Bon Jovi Four For actually helping to bridge the the money gap and. I'm sure nobody regretted it and that everybody got paid back and then some and then some we have one of the issues. That you've fought for in Hollywood is equal pay for women and equal pay for Black Women When did you realize that you aren't getting the same amount that white women doing the equivalent work? We're getting oh that was apparent from the start. I mean you could tell you can tell What an actor gets By what they receive On the sets. No one's actually going to tell you what they make But you you can tell I mean we all knew because they all what happens is when a when a When they're putting together a production they would cast the male lead the white female lead and then they come to you and it's like well we've given out all of our dollars so here ears you know. Here's a change and That's that's usually by the time they get to you. You know that there's very little money and I just knew that I wasn't going to take that you know Much longer especially with what I've been able to achieve as an actress and You know women that I've worked with Viola Davis Garage Hinson Jada Pinkett Smith. I mean we all talk and we started talking numbers and Realize that there definitely was a pay Disadvantaged women of Color receive and with regard to pay And you know we we shared information and and we all learn how to speak up and say exactly what we want in dictate the terms that we need it in our negotiating process. When was the first time you stood up for more actually I always fight for every single job. I oh we always fought for a raise always and we always got a raise every single job because I always prepared to walk away. And and sometimes I've had to walk away because the productions won't budge. I'm fine with say no and I think a lot of people lose the advantage in the negotiating process. If they are not willing to walk away and I'm always willing to walk away Octavia Spencer. It's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for coming on our show. I this is so fun for me. I'm such a fan.

"South working as maids for wealthy white women. It was based on a novel by a friend of Yours Catherine. Stock it Who told you you played one of the maids and she told you that this character was based in part on you not on your work but on what on what aspects of you itchy draw? Well I didn't know Catherine. She was actually very good. Friends with Taylor The director and writer of the help and I had met her Once and it was while we were in In New Orleans it was summer and I was on a diet which those two really really Didn't bode well for tate. Because we were doing like a some sort of tour and it was hot in August and so I was actually very haughty and I think as she was basically writing help she really didn't have a grasp of of who many was her physicality and I think she saw this Part of my personality That was you know I'm the type of person I am a straight shooter and that's kind of I think what she drew from. But we didn't really know each other I think it was just a A surface Part of of of what she drew from. So what point did you find out that she drew from you to create the role that you ended up playing I? She asked me to read the manuscript and Let me tell you when you move to Hollywood. Everybody has a manuscript and it's usually terrible And the manager for the novel for the novel and I she asked me to read it and I just kept putting it off and one night I sat down and read it and the way she got me to read it. Actually she said well. I wrote this. And I'd love your opinion and I loosely. Based many on you and of course. My curiosity was Peaked on but I just. It was such a thick manuscript. And I'm thinking if this is terrible I do not want to waste my time and of course it wasn't terrible. I found it very interesting and I literally read the book in One sitting. At what point did it get offered to you as a role in the movie adaptation I think tate had always Earmark that part for me we were. We had been friends for a long time and As he was adapting it he. You can't make those promises because it's it's you know it's up to the studios whoever The project Whoever produced project and but he always knew that he wanted me to play that part and Catherine always knew that she wanted me to play that part and It was finally offered to me I think Viola had been attached and Emma and then My role because this tape knew he wanted me. But I don't think the studio Knew they wanted me so famous? Tv Spencer that's no one knew you. No one knew me and there were so many other people that that whose name you know. They did know But I was certainly grateful that the DreamWorks decided that they wanted me to portray many and it was because of tate and Brunson Green. Who's also a dear friend and Catherine and I have of course Become friends subsequently but I that's just. It was the role of a lifetime that were decades in Hollywood but when the roles that black women got were maids he and there were very few roles available to African American women and that has left some African American actresses feeling like. I don't WanNa play a made So did you have any reservations about that now? This is a special case because you like the novel. You were part of the inspiration for the novel. A dear friend of yours was directing the movie adaptation of the novel. So it's kind of special but you know. Did you have any Reservations not at all because I think these women represented real people in our society People who did noble work And it like your mother. I may have well like my mother like so many people. I mean who facilitate the lives of other people And I would be remiss if I somehow you know look down or found myself superior in any way I thought that character was well rounded She had a wonderful arc and the book and I was honored to play her. And I can tell you I would play a made it. I would play made again If the role were better than the the character From the help in the help like the most famous scene is when you have presented a chocolate pie to the woman who's employee you have been an act of revenge. You Bake your excrement into the chocolate pie and tell her after she's eaten a bunch of it and talked about how delicious it was and The she of course as horrified afterwards and runs to the bathroom. I'm wondering if that was seen nauseating to shoot even though it was not. There's no extra meant for real by. It was a hat to be quite honest with you. I when I read the book or The manuscript that was the one thing that I I just. I think if many had done that I don't think that she would have revealed it. I think that would have been her little secret. why why do you say that? That's a really interesting web. Because people people I mean it was during the sixties and People were killed for far fewer infractions. I think that was just one of those things I I. I don't think she would have put her family in jeopardy or her own life in jeopardy So it was. It was one of an eye voice that to Catherine But that was it was definitely one of the things it i. I love the the book but that was the one thing that stuck out for me but actually filming it with Bryce I mean Bryce is an amazing actors and we had so much fun with Sissy who you know one of my favorite actresses of all time to suspend. We had a lot of fun. Shooting the scenes so Haddonfield to you. When your suggestion that many would not have done? This was rejected. You know I I. I don't know that it was rejected. I mean I I had an opinion and I guess what I'm asking is you had to play something that didn't believe in. Well I I guess I didn't have I didn't feel one way or the other. I voice my opinion about it and You know it's interesting but it's it was the one thing that I did have reservations about. You grew up in Montgomery Alabama and Can I ask what year you were born? No I'll say nineteen seventy five. Okay so What were the schools like when you were going to school and were their books that you read in your formative years that were very influential for you or I actually was dyslexic or amd dyslexic and I had just A love hate relationship with reading and It was my first grade teacher who Actually my second grade teacher who Really changed my reading career because she introduced me to mysteries and Hardy boys and Encyclopedia Brown but I was actually Encyclopedia Brown because at the end of the Encyclopedia Brown Books. You would always have the clues and the way. She kept me engaged with the narrative. She would always say you have to pay attention to everything because you don't know what is going to be a clue so my Deductive reasoning skills were developed Reading mysteries and I now have great affinity for mysteries and it was because of my second grade teacher Miss Bradford. That's such a great story. I spoke to several actors who have dyslexia and I. I always wonder. How do you manage to memorize your lines When you have dyslexia well I'm auditory inclined and so I- record All of the other characters in the scene and I record all all of their lines and leave space for mine. And that's what I do all day walk around I walk around and Hear my own voice cues with their lines. So it's basically I I. I was in front of you so that you could read them yet. If I go up online yes I always refer back to the script God so you so. You're walking around with a script in your hand. Ready to fill in the blanks and correct yourself if not exactly yeah. It's it's it's my Routine my guess is Octavia Spencer. We'll talk more after a break and Ken Tucker will take a look.

"spencer " Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"Welcome and for so many of you welcome back to the oath. I'm your host Chuck Rosenberg. We begin season two of the oath with an important reflection and in a compelling story eighteen years ago this week al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four planes crashed them into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center Manhattan into the Pentagon and into a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania and killed almost three thousand innocent people men women and children on those planes in those buildings and on the ground it was a horrific and devastating attack. It was a tragedy we lost so many good and decent and caring people including leading hundreds of first responders many first responders to this day continue to suffer from and die from illnesses incurred during their heroic rescue and recovery efforts nine eleven was an inflection point in American history and change the way we think about terrorism and our own vulnerabilities as a nation our guest this week on the oath is Rob Spencer Rob led the team that prosecuted the only al Qaeda terrorists ever face justice in a US courtroom for his role in that nine nine eleven conspiracy the story of that investigation and the prosecution of that terrorist Zachariah Sally is both important and Fascinating Rob Spencer the former criminal chief in the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia who long handled national security cases in that district knows this story as well as anyone he lived it Robs Spencer welcome to the oath. Thanks Chuck. Thanks for having me happy to be here. Where are you from was born and and raised in Hanover New Hampshire. My father was a professor at Dartmouth College. He was a chemistry professor. My mother worked at the hospital there as a cardiac technician. There were four kids three siblings. You're the second oldest correct I have two younger and one older sibling Karen. I know your older sister because we were classmates in college but your two younger siblings took a very different career path than you did. I ended up as a lawyer. Both my younger siblings. My brother's still isn't musician. Shen and my younger sister was a musician but my brother John has gained some following a sort of post punk kind of hard rock musician the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion was a fairly well known banned yeah. When did you figure out rob that you wanted to go to law school. And when did you figure out you wanted to be a prosecutor. Her will always kind of thought I'd go to law school like history and politics. I liked arguing with people I always kind of figured I would end up going to law school actually worked as a paralegal between college and Law Oskoui that didn't dissuade me from going to law school and I also always had in the back of my mind that I'd like to work as a prosecutor and work for the government why particularly being federal prosecutors gators Roy the best job you can have while still being lawyer. You're on the for me on the right side of things. It's full of human drama. There's a lot of interest in doing it. It moves more quickly than civil litigation so there's a beginning and an end to a lawsuit. You actually get to be a real lawyer. It's like the lawyers you see on TV. You're standing up trying to convince Vince a jury of of your case. It's fun you get to hang out with the F. B. I. Agents and people like that for most of the time you're trying to protect society to playing hockey and Lacrosse at Amherst Morris College you eventually went to the University of Chicago Law School. That's correct. Yep and what happened after that I went and came to Washington. DC and took good job a private law firm and worked there for three years to pay off few loans. I had from law school and try to get a background in litigation but always had in the back of my mind that I would go and work for the the Justice Department. How'd you eventually get in in nineteen. ninety-one the fiery the law was passed financial institution something something something act it was a an act passed in the wake of the savings and loan scandal in among another things that provided for the hiring of a number of federal prosecutors to pursue bank fraud claims and that's what I was hired outside in the criminal fraud section of main justice and at this was after spending a couple years trying to get into a US attorney's office somewhere but I was hired at the Criminal Fraud Section Main Justice and started working on bank fraud fraud cases and they had at that point to task forces out of DC one in Texas and one in New England was assigned to the New England Bank Fraud Task Force. Did you like like that work. I liked it at bottom when you get to look at the documents and talk to witnesses and realized there were people who were lying and cheating to steal money from mortgage holders in the federal the government but it was slow moving there was not a lot of work for a lot of new prosecutors and so in nineteen ninety two. I got myself assigned as a special assistant the US attorney to the Eastern District of Virginia Alexandria which is where we first met which is where we first met and it was just an eye opener is fast moving. It was fun you got to stand up in court at least three or four times a week if not every single day and then I spent the next several years trying to get back there permanently and finally got hired magazine Assistant. US Attorney in the summer of Nineteen ninety-five remember your first trial efforts trial is a special was a guy name Moma's Aku he was a west African immigrant granted. He was involved in a scheme to sell false Liberian birth documents because at that point if you're of Liberian origin you're eligible for what was called temporary protected acted status and so along with a gentleman who ended up pleading guilty who worked in the Liberian embassy. It was a scheme where every immigrant of west African African origin who wanted to get into the United States suddenly showed up as Liberian and was granted temporary protected status so massacre was part of that scheme and he went to trial Elon Musk convicted what happened to him. I did some time in jail and then I assume he got deported but I had no idea I know in your career because we worked together for so long that you had some of the most interesting important cases in the Eastern District of Virginia on particularly when you started a little bit later in your career working on national security matters including espionage wanted ask about a couple of those if you don't mind as you know well the Eastern District of Virginia includes the CIA the Pentagon John and a number of other national security installations and so we naturally got a bunch of espionage cases including the the largest naval base in the world in Norfolk which is also part of the Eastern District of Virginia right. You had a couple of espionage cases that I think are fascinating but not well known. I was wondering if you might tell us a a little bit about the squillacote matter so Terry Squillacote and her husband Kurt stand and a friend of theirs named James Clark were ideologically motivated evaded spies who were originally recruited while they were in college in Wisconsin by the East German security service Stasi when there was an east Germany and then after after the the wall fell and there wasn't an East Germany the US obtained the Stasi's file agents in the United States and on that list was Terry Squillacote coat and so the FBI started watching Terry Squillacote and there was no east Germany but then at one point she took out a post office box in a false name in wrote to the communist leader of South Africa pledging that she that she wanted to get back in the in the espionage game and the FBI set up a false false flag and met her at the time she was working in the Pentagon and had recently obtained a secret clearance and showed up to a meeting with someone she thought was a South African intelligence agent and actually was an undercover FBI agent by false flag. You mean a lawful undercover sting operation correct and what about her husband and Mr Clark so Jim Clark had worked for the State Department for many years our state our State Department and he actually would send information nation to his German handler and he ended up pleading guilty and testify against the other two trial. He never had much of access to national social security information. He didn't have a security clearance at least at a at a at a high level but he's still trained and sent information to his East German handler. Kurt stand that was Terry squillacote husband. His role was a recruiter and he was the one.
