Fresh update on "steph." discussed on Dunc'd On Basketball Podcast
"They hadn't they had a challenging season. Klay thompson missed the whole year again and they were thirty nine and thirty three had the differential of a forty two win team. We don't exactly know the return. Timing for him. They also lost kelly oubre other stuff over under set at forty eight point five well clay and it seems like the earliest he could possibly debut. Is christmas steph curry. I think it would be impossible for him to be better than he was last year. Both in terms of quality. And you know he's missing ten games which is about what he did is the absolute best. You can hope for now. One thing that i think is going to be good is that they're gonna play draymond. Green at center more seems like they have just in terms of their roster construction. They've kinda just leaned into that. And i think they had like a one. Twenty-one offensive rating when draymond green played tenor and stuff boyd. And that's even without klay thompson. But i'm a little bit worried still about what happens with stuff off the floor as Big surprise there right And then particularly in the early stretch when clay is out. Because i think jordan pool might be starting and then eventually playing the non curry minutes but he might not be doing that at the beginning and i also have i really like any of their bigs other than dream on You're y when how if he knew unless they're playing with like deletes or something you know they are still i. I still predict the teams is probably gonna start at center for these guys. I don't think they wanna start. Kevon looney your dream on looney together. I mean that is really a struggle office. We now pool starts at the to and you have steph and pool then maybe can get away with that a little bit more You know. I think they have enough outs. In terms of role players with igwe don otto porter. But i'm also wondering like how much jonathan commingle is gonna play. If he plays he's. I mean they're gonna wanna play him some like. I think a lot of this comes down to you. Know how much wise when incoming you're gonna play. I think those guys are going to still not really helped them very much. And then there's also curry health. So i i'm right on the border on this one i think i'm leaning towards the under Signing under here. I think that if this is the type of line that if klay thompson healthy to start the year i think would be reasonable. But they they're gonna have to kabul things together and the warriors don't have a lot of capable replacements for when their best players miss time and it is reasonable to expect their best players to miss at least a little bit type of replace going to start the year missing time curry and draymond each missed nine games last year. I think that is a you know it might end up being more than that for one or both of those guys and they don't really have capable replacements and like well. Why the minutes worth wiseman. Last year were challenging. He played in thirty nine games and played twenty one minutes again. So was it like. They had a lot of other things going on as well and they have some players i mean. Andrew wiggins generally plays a whole lot But i i just don't think they have enough places to turn i also. I think that they'll have a more cogent. They'll be they have more guys that can fit their offensive. Scheming can move the ball. And all that. But i think they just have talent losing uber and replacing him with the whoever's healthy of porter at b. lisa nick would all like that will work some nights in a wound others so i i think they can go over this by. I don't think it's not one of my best bats or or anything like that. But do i see a fifth. Do i see like oh yeah. The worst can win. Not only fifty fifty two fifty three i. That's a lot. That's a lot to ask in a very talented conference. And they're i think they're going to go under. I don't think they're gonna go dramatically under. I think they're still going to make the play. I think they're going to be one of the top eight. But there's i think there's some if you penciled in steph curry to do exactly what he did last year i i would. I would pick the over here. In terms of both games played and quality of game of time aggregate and now. I think they can still be very dangerous in the playoffs member. They are under five hundred. They were they did Not play well in the case. That stuff missed and the reason that they made it to. What eventually is the equivalent of forty four wind team in terms of wins forty two in terms of point differential. They had some incredible blowouts of them that they're on the receiving end of is that they went eight-man rotation for a solid month and a half and like twenty twenty five games and they're totally worn out by the end of that but that's they're kicking ass during that period but because they were just going like absolute balls the wallet get took that and again also during a time period one. Some teams were taking at the end of the year. Took that you're closing the earth. Six straight wins to get that point now. They beat pretty good teams like they almost beat the lakers. Who had all their guys in that play and they beat the jazz and venus both whom we're trying to win over the jazz neville there guys that in that game so like. This is a team. That i definitely think can beat anybody on a given night and i think there is a little bit better than last year. Although what's you're gonna get outta igwe dala and reporter. I don't know and i'm yeah they're gonna play draymond green because i mean they have all these wings now especially when you're gonna play dream center twenty five minutes a game like if you're telling me they're going.
White House Announces New Security Pact With Australia and UK
"Let's just talk briefly about this new partnership between the us australia and the uk. Casey it was announced yesterday. Just explain what it's intending to achieve. Guess there's it's an e packed in in theory and is a security pact. We have a situation where australia will be making new submarines with health in the us. Osa the caper in the us technology in us intelligence. And it has created a diplomatic steph or a number of reasons one. Because obviously you have the five is and this appears to be a breakway from the fives. Some of the countries have in it meeting on coming up with the rain plan. And i think that is seeing even though it's not specifically as a response to china and this is a group trying to tackle they think will be chinese aggression in this area. I think that you use saying the allies or the allies of the uk. Australia and the us. I'm unhappy because you have a situation. Where france had been quite a public their annoyance over this land because a french company had previously had a contract to let australia on submarines and that has now gone in favor of lectern with the us. And that i think are new zealand. A member of the five. Is you have a proper. Because just into autumn relating to rules they had previously in place is saying that these submarines won't say. Hey kennel enter. Newseum waters and i think that is just suggesting a tilt. In towns case foreign policy in the areas it's focusing on usa allies most values
Fresh update on "steph." discussed on The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast
"Each team started playing. And so i was like okay. Okay to kids can't they. Can't they can pick up on ngo of like the like you say the parents in the crowd and how why. I don't think it's always i. I don't think i don't think the After certain eight. I don't think the participation trophy is necessary because of stuff like that. If you if you have kids want to be like they watch sports they wanna be a hero like they want to be steph curry like they want lebron's they wanna be the hero so once that energy goes up big they wanna match it. Yeah i always feel like well. I'm i. I love the participation trophy. I always felt like it gives a bad out. Because you know once you have you know you've probably seen it. I don't know if you've gone to hayes like into the team party pizza parties things they don't actually do a participation of told me like it's so funny like the idea of drove drovers like they just walk up to like the kids on the team like here. They just don't like boxing trophies. But the i love it because the coaches always take out time to say something special about every player yes and that's that's such a adult theme because it's about prosecutors and progress throughout the season Now obviously once you start like once you start taking it seriously you get in high school and college they all that goes away anyway. Like so there's no there's not even participation thing for the kids who are quote unquote taking it seriously but correctly. People always kind of like that idea. 'cause like it would feel weird to be like first of all your parents had to pay for this shit right they paying for the trophy and that's that's another thing that's funny is they'll put it on the kids. I'm like you know why they're giving trophies right five hundred dollars and they refused the fact that they care does not gonna treat especial but it's always interesting because at the end of the season they will be like. Hey i remember when you first guy here. You couldn't even do this and now look at. You're doing this. And that's what this is and everyone claps warmest stuff and the kids never thought it for any second. My participation trophy is the same as his. Mvp trophy. i. I am the same. Yeah we are like the kids know whose scores last two so. I always thought i tried. Are they doing anything for like. Oh go ahead. Sorry i was gonna ask real quick are doing anything different under like the pandemic like they had to change any of the way they do stuff or is it all kind of the same outdoors not this year his school especially has been really good about like eighty seven percent of the students are vaccinated the ones who aren't vaccinated. It's like health reasons or something like that. Eighty seven percents. are vaccinated. They have to every literally every day before school..

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.

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.

The seattle seahawks obtained in prior to the twenty twenty one season in the steelers sent a fifth round draft. Pick to seattle for witherspoon. Okay this is another one of those moments where the steelers fan base is already reeling a little bit. they're frustrated. There's not j. watt contract. All of a sudden steph onto it zach banner anthony macfarlane gone injured reserve which means they are missing games one two and three no matter what then the steelers pull off a trade in.

My reaction was who the heck is this guy. I never heard of this guy now. Granted i'm not a draft. Nick i did get into this draft in the twenty twenty one draft i was i studied. More prospects did more breakdowns. And i've ever had in my entire life. Mope witherspoon was drafted back in two thousand seventeen. So i definitely was not doing all that digging back then nonetheless you learn a little bit about the player after you get to know him in after the trade was announced as official by the steelers. Now you're looking at okay. What is this guy brain to the team. Well when we find out. And this is from people like jeffrey benedict. When people like kevin smith who find out that he's a an typically an outside cornerback. He's not a physical has good ball skills. Good size six to everyone always talks about.

Who either couldn't or didn't want to rebuild. The idea is to connected to their existing park land. that's good for recreation.

"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. You actually paid for this trip so now thinks he is a 94 or higher, okay? For those who want to know that the highest ranking in the NBA NBA two K is LeBron James. Kevin Durant. Steph Curry 97 Be honest, They're all in 96. Then in 95, you've got quite a Leonard Luca Donges. Nicola your Joel and be James Harden. Damian Lillard. So by the way, I put him right behind them.

They added nick which nicola which last last season the deadline the bulls are trying to make the playoffs and much like we've talked about that.

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.

And you learn about what it takes to be a surfer in cuba and you also follow them as they try and take steps to legalize the sport in their country and the journey takes them ultimately all over the world. but most of what's important is right there in cuba even though the story is about cubans with a particular passion seeing aluminum for me. It was felt like an opportunity to see cuba after so many years of not being on the island of seeing people cubans going about their daily lives. I assume that you are not in any way shape or form. Latin american or cuban for that matter. So how did you end up landing on the story. How did you get to cuba. How did this happen gory. Speaking you are correct in your assumption that we are not latin american and when we began the film. We didn't speak any spanish at all. I'd always had a fascination with cuba. Just because it's such a mysterious place to people outside the island. So i had the opportunity to travel there quite briefly and in that time i met both of our main characters in the film franken and they sort of welcomed me in as a friend and started to explain to me what surfing was like there and it was really just kind of just like exchange of know things that made us excited and by the end of it left. Cuba was like this is incredible. I had no idea that this scene existed here. And you know you spend so much of your time looking at the cuba that is sort of stereotypical and said he gets some insight into something that you just don't know exists in a place that you know.

"steph." Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Knows what's coming. Nobody can stop it changing the way. The game is played from an intangible standpoint. Could you put steph curry into the mvp discussion. He has to be. I actually going back you know earlier in the year before we start having injuries pile up in guys started missing time and it made this whole conversation were convoluted. I had as my mvp. Probably going back to mid january. And i haven't really wavered from that even though he missed time. I just think that's an overrated. Characteristic guy flees twenty-five thirty games. No obviously joy labib gonna get north of fifty games in seventy two game season. Which looks like he's going to do and they're number one in the east to me. That's enough time to see a guy played. Say he's in the conversation. I felt steph curry earlier in the year would have been my second pick but then you know he missed time and they started losing games they dip below five hundred and i know this isn't baseball erotic team that can't happen in the nba. We get it winning really matters but now that they are back again. Winning games and this is a team that continues to climb. I mean they have a possibility here to even avoid a play in game if that happens with what he is doing. If you put steph curry certainly in your top five maybe some people would have them in their top three. I think it's ludicrous. To not put him there when you look at the way he has to carry this team with what they have from a roster standpoint and the guys that have missed time for that team steph. Curry is the focal point on every possession and he is still doing this and breaking records every single night and keeping that team afloat and making them interesting one last component to this in a lot of ways i feel like steph curry has salvage the nba regular season because of all of the star players. That have missed. All of them are key. Matchups that have come to fruition because guys are missing games. It's not the same product when you sit down and watch two teams play and the stars. Aren't there this run. He is on right now. Has generated so much interest so much fun so much electricity. I really feel like he has saving regular season. he's also now creating a prelude to what the playoffs are going to be with. A lot of these other guys come back so that she carries some weight as well. Because i really believe he's put the whole league on his back right now. Because all eyes are on steph curry rightfully so and he is right now must watch. Tv so steph absolutely should be in the top five if he stays healthy the rest of the year and warriors make the playoffs. It's an incredible monumental feat to get that team there and by the way the also be very dangerous to play that team in one game. Play in with that guy coming in and also even a seven game series with a t phoenix or utah. Whoever it may be the way he's playing and what he is capable of doing to destroy defensively man who wants to deal with that going into the playoffs so man is he created a story line here as we had his final months of the season. Double barreled question. Real quick lakers in the nets. How worry should we be about those injuries. To both those clubs. I think i know the answer but go ahead. Yeah look. I said all along if the nets. Those guys are all healthy and they have enough time together. I think it's a wrap. I don't know how you're supposed to deal with that kind of firepower. But it's past the point now where you start to get concerned because i am legitimately when you talk about seven games together and go katie. Coming back only back out again. I know it's not the same injury but still missing more time. James harden missing time. They still have been through very many one possession game situations to try to figure out how they're going to run their offense in those moments and that to me is what we're talking about defensive chemistry shirt that's important but ultimately these guys are going to win games because of their shotmaking and they've got a sort through every situation at the end of a game. Let's say it's a two two series and now you're gonna one possession game on his game that could pivot the entire thing. They have not been in those kinds of pressure filled moments to see how they're going to handle roles and responsibilities and accept. Insulin certain possessions and that to me is starting to become a legitimate concern. I'm less concerned about the lakers. I just think lebron. James has so many different ways. He could beat you that eventually. He's going to figure it out. So i'm not as concerned about the lakers. As ain't that the nets who requires so much offense in chemistry to pull this off and they have none right now amongst those three players so look it's starting to get to that point yogi berra said it gets it gets early out here. That's what i feel right now with the nets a little bit and they've got to get these guys back and get in and say at least eighteen games together so they can figure out some of these scenarios at the end of games. Of course they're also going to get a first round series. That should be light work. And that's going to give them another four or five games to sort through so it's still probably is enough time but legitimate concern yogi also said when you come to a fork in the road take it and it's always great to take a few minutes to talk great scott ten. Thanks for the perspective this morning..
"steph." Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Name Jammed oh okay. Yeah we're thinking every okay cool now. One thing that cannot be overshadowed. Is the performance of steph curry. Yesterday in paying attention to the nba season the warriors cast sputtered out of the gate. They don't have klay. They didn't have dream on and people were kind of slander on the steph curry name and he responded with a sixty two point performance yesterday. Jalen what message did carrie send with this. Great game against the plays the message that he's gonna need to sit all season if they're going to be a playoff team and if they're going to advance they he's an all. It'd be a person caliber player in the best point guard in the league. It was great after watching him. Play five games last year to see him get back to this elite outstanding level whereas usage was up his minutes and his affective nece was really high. My green being out there had a lot to do it with screens in his playmaking. Also steph curry. Put the league and the fans and the world on notice that yes. We're that we're not the favourite to win it all this year. I'm gonna make sure i do work. That's what we saw. Russ newman k b o casey. That's what we see hard and doing it. That's what we see damian. Lillard doing important so steph curry charged.
"steph." Discussed on The Free Agents
"You need to check that out. It's a perfect way to sorta like keep up on what's going on. We'll do the deep dives here and that's what we're doing on monday. Always blassie shows usually long. Because we're doing weekend. Winners and losers spoiler to the wedgies are back alabama twenty. Yes i told you. I told you man. They come in bunches and they were coming fast and furious over the weekend. Trays got tweeden night. We got lots here. So let's get into it. We're actually going to flip it on. Its head here and start with losers of the weekend trade because you had such a fantastic spin on one. I thought that we gotta lead with it so trey. Mba weekend loser. The weekend goes to well skeets to be completely honest. Coming into twenty twenty one. I don't want it to be early positive energy. But i gotta say the losers of the weekend. The steph curry haters dare you biggest losers of the weekend. The people who were on twitter all weekend complaining steph curry kalia team steph. Curry is overweight steph. Curry is back. Sixty two points in a win against the blazers yesterday. Twenty one in the first quarter. It was a career high for steph. It was a chase center high which is something that people were carrying about last night at felt like all over again in particular to me november. Twenty one fifteen when steph curry. Basically one has unanimous. Mvp just coming out and dominating shooting every time he crossed half court knocking down the threes. That's what it felt like to me last night. Especially when steph hit the three to put him to fifty nine the warriors get a stop on the other end they come back down on drops it back to him for the three of with sixty two steph runs down the court during the jason terry arms out at felt like a throwback to five years ago after the game steph curry literally said you know q. The jordan meam. I took all that personally. He said that in a press conference. I love a high haters performance during curry last night in credible if you were hitting on this guy over the weekend straight up you're a loser. Twenty twenty one. But you're a loser. I don't think you're on there. It's a nice reminder le- that there are few things more enjoyable the watching sports really then then steph curry what he's cooking and he had to go in there sixty two traits that and just having fun as you mentioned there try that one that gave him the sixty two was just like a kid out there shooting baskets having fun with his friends which is great. And that's what steph brought to the game when he really exploded onto the scene that joy and that emotion of just having fun out there which is great. But i have to be honest like i know with some some chitchat. There bat staff know. He's not good anymore the he needs to have a good season to define his legacy like. That's all boo anyway. Liked it anyone with any credibility or respect. Doesn't think that steph has to go out there and prove anything to anybody me changed the game. He changed the league. The warriors for a couple of years. There were the most incredible thing to watch largely because of what steph curry and we still seeing the the ramifications of the way that he played and shut the bull lying. Tonight you see guys like damian lillard for example shooting from like ten feet behind the three point line. That didn't happen consistently until steph started doing it so all that sort of nonsense annoys. I may look to be honest. I was deep. Dog need to curb a car three this weekend so i didn't see a whole lot of it on twitter. Good what we're not we're not. I saw the people this morning. Twitter just like He's shut up the haters is. I'm just like no one of any responsible. Credibility in the media said anything that made any sense. Anyway about steph. He's a whole fine. He's he's moonwalking into the hall of fame. He's only building on his legacy. Willie win another championship. Who knows maybe maybe not willing another. Mvp maybe maybe not but that stuff doesn't matter for what he has done for the game already and what he continues to do. He's he's an incredible role model. Incredible playa and it was great to see him. Actually you know with a little bit of fire last night being like i really want to go out there and send a message and he did that and it was a great win and great result for him. Yeah we are giving the the haters loser of the weekend. But we should in a weird way be applauding them trae. Because if this is what it takes to get steph curry just like shoot every time. Good keep talking your because i'll ask you this. Was it a coincidence. This career night happened against the alert. Cheddar comes from right. I mean especially after what happened. The game prior with the blazers hammer the warriors. And there's always been this pitting of like you know is is lillard. Ah better points better than korea at this point. I don't think it's much of a coincidence back to back situations here the baseball series. But he's obviously saw the tweets chatter. And i'm sure saw the comparisons so he picks the right team or right player to go up and dropped sixty two on no. I don't think it's a coincidence skied z. Like you're saying people are saying. Is what steph curry does now. Special anymore damian. Lillard can do it. And there was some incredible moments between curly korean lillard in this game trading threes. back and forth damian. Lillard does play the most steph curry like game in the league. But still steph curry game. And i don't think it is a coincidence. That step would come out and put up a career. High numbers against lillard. I mean surely. It helps going into the blazers lockdown defensive team but it's just great deceit staff get untracked. It's a throwback man when steph curry is rolling there are do better watches in the nba and felt like. It's been a long time since we've seen stuff really be truly in the zone. Yeah but what wild with this the sixty two career high you know not not fifteen. Three pointers lee. He was doing a lot of it. Inside the arc. Eight hundred eight to sixty three hundred. That's pretty pedestrian for steph curry. Let's be honest. Ten fifteen from two point range he made eighteen and nineteen free throw attempts. Trae mentioned it. Sure helps when you've got cancer and mellow out there in high pick and roll situations you can attack that you can exploit that and he did. I knew something was brewing in this game. Pat myself on the back here. But i knew was because at the end. First korea. twenty one. So i'm tweeting that this could be a big one but then the final possession of first half kelly oubre junior was on a fast break. He got tied up. It was a jump ball. The warriors somehow come up with the ball so final possession. Curry's icing on the wing. He drives into more help than he keeps. Driving and his lamp gets blocked by newark. Okay appoint sort of play at the end of the half but it was. How curry reacted to getting blocked. That i noticed he was like pretty pissed off. The ball came back to his hands and he gave it a couple of angry dribbles and he's got his mouth guard hanging out his mouth and you can actually see him. It's pretty cool. You can see mimic to himself. I should've shot the floater. He's sort of like he's like mentally going. Why did i be my first guy. Then the second guy came. I probably had a chance to float it up there and i kept going to the rim and then got me at the rim with the blocking my lane. He's like he's like it. Was there there. Should've i should've sean that..

Meanwhile we have a lot more to get to one football. But how about this steph curry back and better than ever? His FIRST APPEARANCE SINCE OCTOBER. Thirtieth is fifty eight games with a broken left hand. Rj everyone including Lebron excited to see him back in for good reason. Look at that this man can do everything on the floor the NBA has missed them. Fans have missed them. The casual basketball fans have missed it. That was a left hand in behind the pass to Andrew Wiggins. And then here he is. That's his first bucket. His first field goal in the second quarter but we people you were upset when people were talking about should he plays like yes he should play. Fans want to see Steph. Curry is a unique player. He's one of them. That's the way the fans view on. So it's great. When have we missed this just that moment? I have not missed that. I had nightmares about that. That has affected my life. Shot clock running out of thirty two foot three eleven points at halftime third quarter warriors playing the rappers by the way and down by nine. But it was Steph Curry. Who just went. Continue to put on a show last night watching here and again he has like when we talked about what. Dane Lillard was doing earlier in the season. Just shooting from anywhere all the time. He was basically jointly. Joining in. What Steph has been doing for the last five years how much fun he's having doing it. Who's counting workers? That was the four point plate. Now here he is in the fourth quarter finding his way to the hall Steph. Curry would finish with twenty three points. Seven assists played twenty seven minutes for the team. They play was good. Keep them in it but Pasquale SIAKA would find a way to win it. Siaka taking into the hole in the end. The Raptors went it one twenty-one one but for everyone great to have an NBA superstar back. Great.

You'll give us a lot more because eight at-bat legit relax for the season. It's a vacation doughnuts with it. Max Don't usually yup originally. Of course I didn't want klay to play because is obviously wasn't going originally. I thought no Steph should come back if you can play this year but March. What are we just had a joke? You what is in March Stephen. It doesn't make any sense. Stephen I want to read you something from real. Gm after the trade deadline. It's not just now and by the way I'm Steffan. Claes windows are short right now. The way they shoot they can be valuable going forward into the distant future even if they're not as valuable as they are in the immediate future in twenty twenty golden state. Think about this and Stephen keep in mind how they draft and develop including Steph and clay. Those guys were short thing superstars coming out of college and Dray. Okay hold on twenty twenty this year. They have their own first round. Pick protected top twenty. They have the Dallas Mavericks Second Round. Pick and the Utah Jazz. Second round. Pick twenty twenty one. They have their own first round pick. They have the Minnesota Timberwolves First Round Pick. Which is only top three protected. They have Denver and timber. Wolves Second Round Pick Twenty twenty two. They have their own first round pick and their second and the Raptors second round pick. They've got all these picks coming up in the next three years and their hands. They're more valuable than pick for another franchise. They're better at evaluating talent. They're better at using their imagination in terms of how to use that talent and they're better at developing that talent and fitting them into a system. So it's not just oh Steph Klay they gotta do something next year no Klay. I don't expect to be as good as he's going to be the year after next year. But having a healthy steph and Klay whatever of them next year is immediately going to make the playoffs contender and the following year. They're going to be a finals contender and they're going to not only their first round pick that they drafted this year. They're going to have first round. Picks going forward multiple first round picks. They are sitting ready right now to continue this run as this dynastic powerhouse. If they don't screw it up I totally agree. It makes no sense for Steph to play games in March. Well let me say this to you with the blasphemous words that I just heard. Come out of your mouth. I believe that anytime. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry on the basketball court together and healthy day our instant title contenders that means the next year. Not only two years from now. That means an ex you you know. Why because their success in predicated on death lettuces? It's predicated on their marksmanship. And these are the elite marksmen. This game has ever seen. I'm going to remind the world. Listen Reggie Miller is a hall of Famer Ray. Allen is a hall of Famer. I go back to the days. Dale Ellis Dell Curry Ricky downtown Freddie Brown Seattle in the late seventies and early eighties. And I'm telling you.

"Cyst, and it seems to me that, that work, low was far too much of a burden for him to carry because he has not even been close to resembling the Steph curry that we know he can be as you mentioned skip. There are a lot of times. Steph normally catches the ball. Illicit go. We saw hitch after hit after hitching shot come up short time, time and time again. So I don't really know what's going on with them or say, you know, we can make excuses for and says, okay? He's tired. But L everybody's tired. It's not like Steph curry is the only one that's been playing and everybody else. He he's had often and he just started playing. You know you've been playing one hundred and fifty games and everybody's just played seventy five. Everybody's played just as many games Steph curry to this point. But this was his opportunity to show. You know what guys I can't do this. I can carry the load yet. We don't have Kevin Durant. We'd love to have him back, but he's not let me show you what a two-time in BT, let me show, you why one of those unanimously and clay in game four and skip we like if Steph give us anything close to the game, pre perform with Chris and he gives clay come alone will hell Klay came along. If Steph got out of the car. Left Klay in the car by. Think I agree with you skip. Thank you. I think game one Steph was very good thirty four points. Game two. Yes. Okay. Twenty three miles of not not very good game three. I thought he was tremendous game for disappointing yet, as you said the bar is. So when your average in thirty three points, five assists, five rebounds, and you're disappointing thirty three points is thirty three points. I mean that that is great. And you mentioned no Kevin Durant. Klay missed the game Kvant looney as miss three DeMarcus cousins is a shell of himself Igwe. Dial is banged up averaging seven points a game as shooting twenty one percent from three Draymond green is not been himself shooting eight percent.

"Klay forever anyway no steph was not done yet there's this from the corner and yep lastly another step back three and it's remarkable when you see them all together because it underlines the thing about stuff which is that he can get a shot off anywhere anyway when he is feeling it no distances safe that is why a few years ago he literally revolutionized the way the nba game is played and why i don't understand why everyone is such a lot of right now over whether steph can finally win as i finals mvp yeah he could definitely win it but really who cares the man is a twotime actual mvp poised to win his third ring and guess what all praising hallelujah he is the greatest shooter of all time church church services wednesday i'm telling you man kevin durant i don't want to you know sell him short he had a great effort very very efficient twentysix points really strong on defense i mean the question to me is who is more important for the warriors right now about a week ago we were on the set in la doing the finals preview show me you tracy mcgrady and byron scott and i all handily said steph curry is the best part on the warriors trying to make another point i never got to the point because they're trying to stop me oh that's why because when he plays well they're unstoppable when katie plays well they might be solvable or they might be in a nail biter and that's a huge difference he defines the culture and he bends the way the defense has to play him because unlike kevin durant again it's not a knock on trent is highlighting special about curry when he goes into those one on one situations we saw a couple of them he gives up the ball his work hasn't stopped he keeps moving and defenders often are.
