Nike CEO John Donahoe's Lessons on Servant Leadership
"What star. John rains that i am most associate with you. Which is servant leadership. And i'd love if you could describe your philosophy on servant leadership especially try to conceptualize it for much smaller organizations. What does it mean to serve leader as a ceo of a bunch of ceo's around the table how should they think about how that philosophy conform away they run their business so when i talk about servant leadership. It's frankly the the way. I learned to lead because i actually learned the lead in partnership a ban where you aren't really empowered to do anything to you have to earn the respect and the followership of others. You guys don't have that as founders. But i do think you'll find that. Many of the best leaders exhibited the principles servant leadership. And i just say how do i serve serve. The purpose of the organization serve the customers served. The employees serve the communities in which we operate in a jim collins called at level five leadership other people call from things. But it's when someone it's not about the leader it's about what it is. We are trying to accomplish right and some of the antithesis of what's hot silicon valley at different times the narrative. Always around the all-powerful founder. They're all powerful leader. And i think there's actually very few examples where that actually great sustainable companies come out of that my leadership role model for large parts of my career with phil jackson of the chicago bulls. Now it'd be steve kerr for your younger and would always struck me. He was able to do is get people who actually were better than he was klay. Together he got michael jordan. Scottie pippen dennis. Rodman caster characters to win six championships. It got shack kobe to play together. You look at you. Look at steve kerr the warriors right. Now he's getting. Somehow he's getting steph curry klay thompson and kevin durant andrew mongering all vying to something greater and they win i view with how do you build high performance teams of top talent to win and servant leadership is part of it.

"Young apparently is upset and we hear about this every year. It's mostly mad, and it seems like Madden. Players get more upset, which is the NFL. Then players care about their ratings. They can't do. Yes, well, apparently Trae Young is fed up. He's really fed up. How fed up Not only has he taken to social media saying, y'all ever going to get it right over his 89 ranking on two K 22, but Apparently close to people who know he talked to his agency and asked, Is there a way to sue to get him removed from the game? Because he thinks his representation is unfair. No, there's not. It's collectively bargained with the National Basketball Association. Your name, image and likeness actually was sold off by the union. That's why you pay your dues and you get your money from this.

Has Giannis Antetokounmpo Earned More Respect During NBA Finals?
"Of jaanus. We have a lot to talk about what it when it comes to the greek freak because he is just one win away from winning his first. Nba finals but the two time. Mvp still hasn't gotten total respect around the league from his peers. Just last year james harden. Instead of the honest. I wish i could just run and be seventeen. And just don't like that takes no skill at all. I had to actually learn how to play basketball and how to have skill. you know. i'll take that any day. Well chris paul just last week said of his finals opponent quote he comes down there. He dunks his dunks. You don't more than he shoots a layup. I don't know about this bullshit and has earned more respect during these finals for me. I don't respect him anymore. Any less than i did going into the final. Skip for me for a guy that everybody says that he can't do and he doesn't. I think the biggest thing is to make a long story short skip. He can't shoot the ball kevin durant. He's not flashy with handling the ball. Like daimler steph curry. He shoot the then. I saw back shoes. Like james harden. He's not as accomplished or if charismatic is lebron james football. A lot of guys can't can't can't can't he's a two time league. Mvp he's a defensive player of the year and he's on the cusp of winning title and being finals. Mvp that's a hell of a carpenter for a guy that got a lot of kids.
Betting Summer Hoops
"Now to welcome in a somewhat regular guest here on the behind the podcast. A friend of mine. Brian win horse. Who is also in las vegas and we have yet to connect though brian how are you. I'm getting up at like five thirty on some of these days and teeing off by seven to try to finish before gets it gets ridiculous but i'm really enjoying it to be beat the heat. It is pretty ridiculous. I mean. I know it's hot in the summer but it's gotten out of hand a couple of times one seventeen the other day Tell you what. I bet you saw. Popovich getting up at five thirty losing some sleep perhaps because team. Usa not looking good right now and we know these sort of narrative with the international play is that they're more if more continuity usa is going to get everyone's best shot but this is this is really unexpected here. Oh and two out of the gates. There's another game coming up tonight. Eighteen and a half their lane to argentina. I liked them in the first half minus ten and a half but just in general is their level of concern here for a team. That's minus four hundred win the gold. Yeah by the way one of the things about tonight's game. I don't know how who's going to play for the us. They don't have a huge selection of wires only got nine of their Of their national team players because middleton holiday inn booker are in the final so they they've got some some other young guys there but it's considering it's back to back and not only. Is it back to back but yesterday's game was a five o'clock start and this today's game three o'clock local. I'm not sure what you're going to see from the us that game but argentina's in the same boat and Their in two so far so You know. I think there's two ways to look at this on one hand The teams that. They're playing her so much more talented than the teams that they were playing. Even five to seven years ago You know i. I mean i made a deal of this to you. Know they beat. Nigeria nine years ago when olympics by eighty three and five years ago by forty three but the team. They beat five years ago. Didn't have seven. Nba players on right and not only that but one of their best players Okafor jalil okafor didn't even play against the americans. He came back and played against the argentinians. On tuesday and fifteen points so they didn't even face a full scale nigeria teams. You can believe that it's not comparable but the other side of that is. The us team is loaded. You know two years ago. I went to china with team. Usa and they finished seventh in the world cup. And you know really was their worst finish in you know you know since two thousand four athens games which they still won bronze in but their worst finish over in the world cup and that team it. Just frankly wasn't very good. There was only one or two players in the whole roster would ever even been all stars and so while you can look at some things and see some cracks. That was not a representative team. I know that. Lebron and steph curry and anthony davis aren't playing but this is representative team. This team is loaded like a ten of the players. I think are were all stars in the last year and Almost everybody rotation was either all. Nba this year or should have been all nba. like durant. didn't naked 'cause injuries but trust me he's all nba player right so Having said that you see that much talent they should struggle and still win.
"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. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

The Business of Predictive Real-Time Fantasy Esports with Nick Bucheleres, CEO Grin Gaming
"What experience has led you to start grin gaming, when it launched? It was last year, I believe, you know, you know, you leave it behind him. You leave it. You leave your previous position behind you. Start green gaming, what led you to that, conclusion, to start that up? Well, you know, as you said, I used to work at the Chicago Board of Trade, doing a high frequency and computerized trading. You know, I'm a Trader at heart. I will bet on anything and everything and turn every ping pong game took into a into a competition. And so you know, whenever I'm watching sports games or TV shows or Esports tournaments and constantly asking myself off to happen next, I bet they'll get that killer, I bet you know, Steph Curry easier to make that three. I bet you Clippers are going to win the tip-off and, you know, I figured I wasn't alone. And so really in many ways, I created this platform for myself, for my friends, right? As a way to put our money, where our mouth is at every beat of the song. Action. And so I'd grin gaming, we allow users and viewers to predict every play. Literally, so every 10-20 seconds, you get a new question that's perfect to the next outcome and you're able to to to just predict how the game will unfold. You're not predicting the outcome per se, but you're predicting performance of players teams. Offenses defense has different plays or game setups. So yeah, in many ways it was just a a way to satisfy my own, you know, thinking during Live

"steph curry" Discussed on BBALL BREAKDOWN Podcast
"Similar to Tremonton. You have to have a mom ball so you can be effective otherwise he's going to kill their wage. Sing know, but those two months in Houston where he was the best he ever was, he was still like golf ball. They were hardened would would get the double team and then he finally I think he adjusted I think I think Russ was having a hard time dealing with all that extra space. He was like this going too fast, it's like oh my God, I'm open. I'm going and then you throw up all the way until shooting wild shot and I think after enough time I mean I'll go back again but this is my memory of it was off. He just got more relaxed a little bit slower and was able to take his time better on those attacks but my memory of it. He was still attacking like from the Winger from from a double-team of the hardened to Russ and that was awful lot better for everybody that was really working for them. I do not feel that was the case it. I mean, I I basically feel I remember watching it, I feel like that was pretty much around, it was the case, but it seems like it's like we're using the staff staff Draymond pick-and-roll, and then they trap stuff and they play spawn three. I mean with hardened it's it's a naked dribble, right? So there's it's just an isolation. They double him dead. So it's the same thing but but if you have them just play the two and heart is breaking down his man. He still has to throw it to Russ, which I guess the Lakers they completely cut off the rim. So you have to take a bunch of jumpers and like he said, he was just running around out there so that's him playing the two. Yeah, just has to be the one even with Bradley Bill. You can tell Bradley have to take a step back in terms of volume. So that Ross can take over those playmaking duties and then and then rather deal play softball. So I try and he's more effective because of his skill set or lack thereof. He has to be on the bulb most of the time. Unless it's a Ford three situation over three or four situation. Okay. I can see that I'm going to drive into some Wizards footage. I haven't watch a ton a recently so I want to look at it but I did notice that my antenna went up watching a lot of The Gafford, you know, cuts for, for layups from Russ and it was all off of, you know, Russia attacking from the wing and so that that was interesting to me. So it may be at least for Gafford that that works for them on those instances job. But um, but yeah and and that that all it could very well be what the solution is for them..

"You have this team that Steph Curry has essentially carried and managed to keep relevant for most of the season and now you got seeing those to battle it out. It's I think I'd be a very interesting place that probably be like the best probably playoff series. The first thing, I mean, I guess but like they don't have anybody to guard LeBron James Friday. I mean okay, forgive me, Draymond Green that can put on a g and that would probably be okay, but she is going to shoot over him. He really you know, he's going to post them up and that's going to be tough and LeBron. I mean who you go throw in the Bronx to be like Uber or brigands. You know? Like okay I think me I'm kind of I'm kind of seeing them like coming back from injury. I'm just going to say maybe they're not. Oh okay. Like I don't I don't think LeBron straight into the Play-Off. The thirty-six-year-old I'm not going to count them out but at the same time I don't know what the LeBron in the playoffs pressure injury looks like you know, right? That might be some that might be a different animal that we see and then Steph birth. Has been on this hot Street who comes in first game. He drops 45, then it's a close game. Down the stretch. Now you need Anthony Davis on the bar on the close, the game mousetrap, doing his thing. That, that, that, that situation in itself is something that's wrong. Right? Exactly. Wow, look at look at Brandon's now. Convincing me that maybe they have a real, real, real shot and being Lakers. This is great and writers, Kevon Looney, who's out there and member, they're going to start. Drumming, I assume wage. Although Drummond, man. You know, I'm kind of not doing a lot of, you know, Light Em Up videos anymore, but drum, I don't know, man. I mean, I was trying to warn Lakers fans when he got there, but God, I haven't seen a lot of great stuff from him with the Lakers. I don't know. And yet they keep playing them over kasol. Yeah. I don't I don't see them. That's that's another thing too. Is like once the playoffs start the game slows down. Do you want to still keep on doing something on the floor? Do you need a guy like most Marcus or who obviously isn't as fast as mobile? But he's still a smarter Defender and he still has like some dead. The tangible defensive abilities is just his age at this point. Yeah, no, I I agree. I think that you're, you know, it's not it's slim pickings. If you have to choose on this point and it should be good. So it's a no-brainer because you just doesn't moving as well, wasn't as effective, but I think that, you know, listen Drummond his skill level to me, doesn't Merit starting. And, and getting a minutes on that team, especially in a long way off shot. You know, where we're at, turn over here and a missed layup here. It could kill you, you know, especially against that now, right? I mean, it's not like that if Steph goes off and then it's like, said, Thursday has to go off, right? Like there isn't any version of The Matrix where the Warriors win and steps scores like eighteen points and shoots, you know twenty percent right?.

"So that's helpful. But then again, when used the other way, you know, when you're a good team and you can then make them, you can just extend those leads craziness. And without fans, we've seen this, I've talked to some NBA guys, something about the fans and the pressure that puts on a lot of different players in the NBA affects them as well. Believe it or not. And so without fans, a lot of those players, probably shot a lot better than they would have with fans in the stands so that probably has something to do with the fact that like something scores got out of hand and some of these, you know, the the the leads got out of hand as well. It'll be interesting to see when we get fans back in the stage. I'm assuming that will be next year you know get your vaccine please and if we can do that will see if there's any kind of blip on the, on the, the macro analysis of three point shooting club. But I kind of feel like I maybe I'll check it real quick. I feel like and three-point frequency has kind of leveled off or maybe gone down a little bit this year, which would be little bit crazy. Consider how long 3-point frequency? Let's just give you an anecdotal version. The Jazz are number one if three-point frequency at 49.1%, and there, by the way, they're shooting 39% overall, it's probably first or second. Now, the Rockets are behind them off at 45% and then the Blazers 45. So, top three are 4946 and 45. Let's go back. One season just for fun. This is not a scientific way to do this but we can do it that way. Last year, the Rockets were fifty fifty point one and then it went down to 45 and then forty-three..

"And then I did a video saying, well if you call him albums to call out your own player who did it for years and years and he did it on purpose. Yeah so I have no no no love lost for Bruce Bowen I mean listen look good for him for like you know carving out a career and making something happen for Thursday. Without limited ability, but the idea that he would do that there was so much evidence to Kobe as well of him doing a sliding underneath her feet and and trying to get him the, you know, roll their ankles horrible. But but duly note it, I mean, certainly if they're not on the floor, that's one way you can stop them. I would also say whatever happened to a double-team. How does if you took well? We know that stuff will pass the ball. He'll be there. He'll do the right play, know pass the ball and that's the goal. The goal should be getting out of his hands, right? Like it shouldn't he shouldn't have it as much as he did Even though again the Thunder are not incentivised to win. They're not a good defensive team anyway but we see like the good teams as well do this. And they don't necessarily double enough who is going to hurt them and the Warriors you know, dribbling and space. It's acting in the rim on a what? Like I guess a four on three. Nobody maybe it. Maybe you can get Draymond Green going and setting somebody up for Thursday. I don't stay home and tear him to shoot any kind of Runner or floater or sort of any shot at The Rim. I don't, I would take my chances with that over anything Curry shot. Well, the one team that was able to, like, hold in to like a real, like a 13 points was the Clippers and like, they barely won that game, which kind of surprising. It was like, in the beginning of the year, like, maybe, I don't know if you remember, but it was like, maybe it was it January or December is mm. Yeah. I, you know, I don't remember that but I'm trying I'll have to go through and figure out what they did if anything because again, when you watch the Mysteries, I was studying to my side it's like okay, what did the defense do offer to make him miss that three? And I gotta tell you on some of them, it's like nothing like you just pulled up, he was open again, lewd or fell asleep, a number of times so we can go into that a little bit in a second while the man human. Yeah. I mean that that's, that's what it is. I mean, it's like but then again if we can reverse-engineer what we see from the defense you can try and do it more often obviously and then that would maybe help about it. But again. I think they have a discussion because especially when you see them, go to the basket and finish over Biggs with loaders. This is the most skilled. I've ever seen any player be especially pound-for-pound that it's six three, right?.

Hope you're if you if your mom's around and you can say happy Mother's Day to wear and make sure you do that, do that every day.

So as we all scream in here, don't forget if you want a job, but up with me, I always welcome that you can come in this request to speak and we bring everybody in at one time said, let's talk about this but, you know, I was looking around at Curry's as his game last night. I mean, we need to get the stat. I don't know if anyone's done this, we're dead. You know, it just step have 49 points and 29 minutes and I kind of feel like we need to see what that record is like, you know, most points for fewest minutes because it's got to be up there. But I can't think of any, you know, another player that's played. So a few minutes. It's got up to almost fifty points. And so, you know, the key here is when you watch it, okay? Of course, it was okay. See? And they're not incentivised to win money. They do have lewd or who you would have expected to be, you know, offer something up against Steph Curry, we've seen him against hardened. We've seen him this year, be terrific defensively, he's very active, very strong, very quick with a lot of energy on that end. But I gotta tell you that, when you look through, every one of the whatever 30 some field goal attempts at Curry shot dead. You know, he fell asleep on so many of those, it was crazy. I don't know what was going on with him because it's definitely an anomaly from what I've seen this year and last year as well. So but it's always nice when you can log. Up against, you know, a team that's not good and not good defensively. And, you know, one of the things that they were doing was Steph were what made him so good last night was, you know, he ended up making, eleven three zero and eleven 4:21. They were picking them up at half court, so we could talk about how to stop Steph. Curry and certainly one of those things is you have to pick him up in the backcourt, you can not let him dribble over half court, without anybody in front of him and that happened. A number of times last night. It was kind of like scratching my head thinking, what is going on here? Because, you know, obviously he's the, he's the greatest threat, the Warriors have on offense arguably. Like the only really legit threat out there to score especially coming across the outpouring of dribble..

Curry's 30-Point Run Ends: 'It Was a Special Ride'
"A babe a streak. Bay Area. Pro sports teams have owned the sports headlines for the past week. Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry set the NBA record as the oldest player in league history to score at least 30 points in 11 consecutive games. The Oakland A's who lost their first six games of the baseball season, carried a 10 game win streak in last night's contest against Minnesota. One Street continued, but another came to an end Steph Curry, who had scored 96 combined points over his previous two games. And who would hit for 42 arm or in five of his last 10 games, finally went flat curry not spicy against the Wizards. He made only two of 14 shots from three point range scored. 18 points total first time in 12 games. Steph Curry did not reach 30 points. He was a great room, whose nose in a some point is a special ride for sure that this age was this very special. The Warriors lost to the Wizards won 18 1 14 Steph streak over at 11 games.
Curry's 30-point run ends
"Out there that says rules are made to be broken. Well, records are made to be broken as well. Streaks are made to be surpassed or made to come to an end, and it just so happened. That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

"Is Steph curry talking about the injury to Kevin Durant. And I dunno share your or Katie. If you saw the game last night game five of course and Durant goes down he'd been out with an injury. And it looks like in his first game back. Right. He re injured looks like anyway, he reinjured his calf. And so when he goes down people there in the stand start cheering one guy, actually was waving at Durant, as he's sitting there on the on the court effectively cheering that the guy got injured. And so you had some folks there on the raptors as some of the players that said, you know what you folks. Do need to check yourself. Stop it because this is our brother, Kevin Durant Golden State warrior down with what looks like a very serious injury. And I'll be honest with you. I'm not the biggest basketball fan, but when I heard about this, and I saw some of the video, I was up. Paul. I really was I couldn't believe to hear the fans cheering for for an injury. That was just sick. Hopefully, they like came to their senses and realize that maybe they just got caught up in the moment of the rivalry. I don't know but they did quiet down eventually and stuff. So, yeah, I don't know how sh- Sherry. I don't know if you saw the game I, I did not. I saw some of the highlights afterwards, but how long did the cheering for the injury go on? Was it just like a minute? Was it maybe a minute and a half? And I wonder if it was one of those things where Durant goes down. And I don't know if he was, you know, I don't know if I would describe it as writhing in pain, but it definitely was clear that he was hurt. And so, yeah, everyone knew he had been hurt and had been anticipating his return. And wondering if you'd come back to soon, or if.

"Golden State outscored Toronto thirty four twenty one in the third quarter last night continuing trend that the team is established in recent years over the last three seasons. Now this includes regular season and postseason, the warriors have outscored opponents by an average of four and a half points in the third quarter. By the way, Steph curry loves the third quarter. Steph Curry's points per game by quarter since twenty sixteen. First quarter seven point eight second quarter five point five fourth quarter five point five. Steph curry in the third quarter. Averages nine points per game every game since twenty sixteen the nine points, the highest by any player in any quarter in this span. So I'm guessing. Third quarter, who's got Steph because you make adjustments and it feels like if you can withstand the onslaught, then you can beat Golden State, but his history is proven at least recent history. You don't withstand that the rush that's happening. And when you let them go on a fifteen o twenty two run twenty two three run, then you're in trouble. They held it. They hang hang in there. And then all of a sudden it comes down to the final couple of seconds. Choline nearly how to steal they should a double team Steph. And they didn't vanfleet nearly how to steal, but they let Steph curry, go to the middle of the court to have the pass and all of a sudden they ended up getting into dollar and that was it now Toronto has himself to blame. You can credit Golden State for being gritty gutty hanging in there, fighting through injuries and go into their bench. Players and he'd dollar hit a big shot there. But if you're Toronto this, this game Toronto lost more so than Golden State one in my opinion. All right. We'll take a break.

"He's typewriters relics, but my initial reaction was I like typewriter. Oh my new computer. It makes me learn new stuff and Steph curry is, is unique in different. It means just different. Never had a superstar that one hundred seventy five pounds. That, that you can just push around and Steph Curry's resume is amazing. He's got three rings to MVP's in the regular season won unanimous six time all star most threes ever. In a season part of the greatest team ever the seventy three win season, most playoff threes ever. The only thing really missing on his resume is finals MVP and he did have one great finals. He could have won it, but they give it to Andre Iguodala, but that's kind of the icing on the cake. MJ's got six. Magic got three shacks got three. Lebron got three katie's got to Kobe's got a couple. He doesn't have one. And he is favored this morning. I see that he is the favourite to win the MVP, and I'd love to see it because I think he's just a wonderful kid into wonderful player, but it's funny about this K D And staff have something in common. K D is not embraced by the fans. Because he joined a great team and Steph is not embraced by many of the players because they feel he needed to recruit. Another star. So there's this layer of disrespect both feel. And you can argue there two of the top three players in the game. Katie's not respected by fans because he had to join somebody to win a Daito and Steph, a lot of players push back on Steph. There's more respect for Westbrook in the league than staff, although steps are much better player because, you know, he had to go recruit somebody. That's not it's not what I do Derek Rosa. I don't have to recruit Westbrook. I'm not going to recruit, John. Well, I'm not going to recruit steps like offer recruiting. I watched LeBron for recruiting. And this is funny. It just goes to show you how threaten people are by new Dwayne Wade is much more respected by players than Steph curry, and Steph curry is better than D. Wade Steph curry won a title and didn't have another star D Wade had shack for the first and then LeBron for the next two D Wade's. Never been the best player on a championship team. No, he did win finals MVP but shack was the better player at the time. Delayed was young and really talented. We also know that D Wade, you don't think he. Helped recruit LeBron. And Chris Bosh, of course he did. But that doesn't stick to him like Steph curry. Inviting katie. And even though it was drain on who sent the original text decay, de San come on over. But D Wade never changed this game. He was just great. Steph curry is like, human automation. He's eliminating jobs. He's like those robotics going around the world he's eliminating positions in jobs, but Steph is unique. He's not an alpha he's new school. Not old school. He wears those shoes that look like a pharmacist would wear them. He grew up with some money. He didn't have the struggle a lot of kids had. He's non-physical. He's got a game that bordered on initially weird who can shoot from thirty four feet. Whereas D Wade is your classic tough Chicago. Tough neighborhood old school. Hit the deck. Getting your face almost inartistically. But Wade, we've seen Wade before. Wade is old school. And by the way, first ballot hall of Famer love him..

Things that as a professional I think he under oath angles. One guy, he wants better from himself. I think you know, he expects better and he wants to continue doing better. And this is something that's going to be motivation for them. I do by the motivation from him. I've had a couple conversations, which are well, where he really feels like he needs to put things up on a bulletin board for himself. That is why he said, hey, I want to be the MVP defensive player of the year because he says that you talk to key feels, then he has to back it up putting that crying fixture up on his on his social and saying, okay, this is what I'm going to have happened again. I remember though after last year's playoff series, when they had so much trouble with Boston. And he said, the same thing this is going to be motivation for me. And I think it's certainly was. And we saw the way he came out in the beginning of the season. It's a long season though. He's going to have to keep weight off right. He's going to have to monitor his own minutes and not try to run out and play every game that he can go. You're. Right.

There is this lateness that you guys have been playing with since really the end of that game five against Houston game six the beginning of this blazers series is does remind a lot of people two thousand fifteen doesn't sixteen. Does it feel to you? Without pay. We had to play differently, and we have to highlight with everybody strengths are and, and do about committee, you hear the noise like know Kate me goes out. Nobody weird to say Davis. Shot said we shouldn't have won the Houston series, other cases, so again, confidence, and trust in each other to be able to make that adjustment on the fly here from Houston being tire season. Oh, the rockets were up three to last year's conference finals, and Chris Paul went down and rockets beating the warriors otherwise. What did you think of that noise during the regular season? And then in particular getting to go beat them when you were the guys who had the injury. But you still won that series. Kind of beauty.

And he has said since then after it's been corrected then it's like it's opened up a whole world for him. And he happens to be shooting about fifty one percent since this happened.

"Steph curry through a mouthpiece once. People get. If you win then they hate you. That's the way it works. You have to win consistently. Character polarizing because of that which is not I mean, he is a personality, obviously. But he's a nice personality dominating winner. And we don't have those things with them. And that's not a knock on it. It's a good thing. Actually, you need every kind of personality. I actually think what's interesting. Everyone likes Tom. I didn't say everybody likes Tom Brady. I'm saying you mentioned his personality comedies personality is geeky kind of milk toasts. Like, he never he doesn't say anything. Yeah. But some people don't like that either. I agree. But that's kind of what like Janas just eight different version of that says nothing creates no drama. Just plays basketball. They only don't hate him. Because he hasn't won yet. Once once he wins in the playoffs Dory. They'll hate that's what we do. We build you up L. We get you down. And then we see how you handle us cutting you down. I finally Baker Mayfield is also very polarizing spent his off seasons in LA started working out with a year ago, and he went to dinner with him this off season. And Baker says he'd never thought. That they would end up on the same team. Absolutely with hope for that. I wouldn't necessarily say that we talked about it too much. Thought about it. You know, throwing him just running routes on air realizing, the potential all the talent that he has its unique not many you're able to do it. And so then you put together to LSU Tigers next to each other. It's a dangerous duo. And so it's going to be a lot of fun. But it's something you can only dream about. I wish they were on hard knocks this year. Oh my gosh. Do I wish they were on hard knocks? I could I I love hard knocks. But I would love it a lot more. But they were on hard knocks last year. Well, yeah. I mean, obviously, I know I just I I'm with you. There will be so I I there's so many storylines around the team at I I really actually hope and I can't believe I'm saying that's being from Pittsburgh. I do hope it. It is a success is because first of all everyone thinks that like I Rueda Colin rates is like the media roots against the Brown. It's not good for the business to have a team. That is unwatchable. Nobody wants that. I don't want that. How McLean watchable pretty good actually? Is it a little bit? We do we knew.

"And you could be creative and try things on the playground. And then the game became travel basketball gyms, we got three games today whether you win or lose, and then Bob Hurley senior made a great point to me, I spent a year with him doing a book. And and he said what happens is he talked about when he had point guards who grew up in the city, including his son, Bobby, and he had, you know, Kenny Wilson, David rivers that you. You could be creative and try things and make mistakes. But when they're keeping score, and you're in the gym, you just play to your strengths because you're supposed to win this game. And you lose that. Do you see that in a game that it's like instead of in the city guy, everyone's just out in the suburb taking a van out, you know, playing travel hoops at something's been lost is a different generation for sure I think everybody asked me about kind of my journey when I was between eight and sixteen say in kind of the play those nose day you leagues. What did I do if I were plan for the school team or whatever like just to work on my game? And all that. And and thinking I how different it is what fifteen years ago. Yeah. Exactly two now. Just how many things are pulling at these kids now in terms of one distractions from the game, but to just in within you know, the basketball arena, how many different avenues they could take to try to reach their goal of making it to the league or making it to d one college or whatnot. Honestly, I'm not as well versed in in. I'm sure we'll be got kids coming up. But in terms of just like as long as people were playing bass while working on the skills surround himself with the right people. Like, I feel like the game is in good hands. But it is. I I can't imagine how hard it is right now for each kid is coming up to maintain the purity of the game to maintain. Like, you said the natural progression of like is stuff that you gotta learn to, you know, can make a break you once you get into the the truly competitive recruiting situation, and even college an oil like stuff that you learn really young such in the right direction. So it's it's tough. I'm sure do you feel like? You have a handle or does it really interest? You about the impact you've had on a generation of players in your ability. How you play the game. And the way you've transformed it in the way you've expanded people imagination about how you can play the game. And then you see it start to come where kids start to emulate. You do hear a lot from people the impact use are you able to see it anywhere. Unless two years of heard a lot is kind of a consistent thing on a daily to be honest. The some re-dimensioning social media some somebody tagging videos, I know listen next Steph curry, or I think the funniest one was there is the high school clip last year of this team that would shut I think literally twelve threes and one possession. They just kept getting off into rebounds kicking it out into shooting threes, and they missed them all and somebody tag me to like see ruin the game. This is all your fault, yadda, yadda. So I take it as flattery in terms of there are so many people that have watched me play now for ten. As in the league, and even in college that to emulate what I do the fact that I'm not a high flier in shooting is my strength. Everybody who plays basketball in any walk of life can shoot, and they should be able to you know, to shoot some way, shape or form..
