Bronze medallists paul george. Hey way off the playoff. Who knows but i know on a sleepy night in january. There's very few guys. You'd rather have thirty nine points quiet. Leonard didn't have it. He prevented the clippers from having back to back losses for the first time all year. Leonard your bronze medallist. So medallist. Jamal murray while call the yolk. We're gonna triple jamal.

"Maybe you don't win a championship them with them in this year. But in the years to come you're guaranteed to have fats whereas how many other teams are guaranteed to have some combination of two players on that level. So i certainly wouldn't do it for hard. Like the celtics are not in the position. Where james harden is such upgrade over jalen brown that you make the deal in risk potentially blowing the next ten years of your franchise out who else is out there on the market that i would that is considered a trade chip in a situation like that so i think you know jaylen brown to me is become too big to trade at this point jason. Tatum already was jalen brown. After being you know the guy you trade for kawai the guy you trade. Anthony davis at this point. Jaylen brown too big to deal. Well i mean look if not that it would be but if we're doing the hypotheticals if it were jalen brown for anthony davis tomorrow when you compare. Anthony davis jason tatum. You'd probably do it but the l. That's that's not a realistic discussion One other wrinkled to this one Coincidental to this to this podcast agenda. Because i didn't know When i had this conversation a couple of days ago that we would be discussing jaylen brown today but Back and forth with with a friend who's a fan and we were just talking about simmons and beat this and the as sixer fan you know. I wonder if you had to do over again in that draft because it went simmons ingram brown. Would simmons still be number one. I thought well we hold on an so. The your your initial reaction is always think like that's crazy. of course. Ben simmons unicorn six ten point guard at all this but i started thinking about it. You know obviously ingraham's becoming all star and jaylen brown's on his way there and when you think about two skill sets and just the offensive repertoire. That the other two guys have. The benjamin does not have at this stage and so out of curiosity i through this at at a scout who you know as seen plenty of all these guys and he like i was expecting the get the hell out of here with that question response and it was not it was you know. I think i'd take jaylen brown. The dow was literally the response. Was i throughout this..

"Get two of your face for just six bucks. Participation may single item regular price. All right let's finish howard with jalen brown. And i don't know if you put them in the most improved category but he certainly has made some real big strides in the early part of the season. Averaged twenty points per game last season as we record this right around twenty seven. His field goal percentage jumped almost ten points in forty eight percent to right around or just a cut below. Fifty eight percent is three. Point percentage around forty three percent shooting thirty eight last year. I mean this is still viewed as jason tatum team. He's the guy at the top of the food chain. But jaylen brown's closing the gap on him right now and i bring this up in the context of trade situation. So i mean we're talking top of the show about james harden. How would you look in boston. Celtics are always the epicenter of trade rumors that have been over the recent years but as jalen brown almost become too big trade and we can use hard as an example like it sounds kind of goofy but would you trade jalen brown for james harden at this point with the way brown is playing and kind of the where this has been building towards over the last couple of years. Yeah i mean look. He's twenty four. He's not even really to his like early prime wherever you know whether they say primis twenty-seven so you're like you're like pre prime on a good contract to a good contract. He's twenty four. He's i mean. I think throughout the numbers already. He's averaging twenty seven four point five four point six rebounds three assists a game shooting at a great percentage. He's a a versatile and and aggressive defender. He's a great to him. He's one of the best two way players in the league right now and look. I look at the league. Forget the like the hypothetical jalen for hardening although it's a fun discussion if you of the who says no game i look at where the league is. Chris and i think if you look at the last several champions or just the last ten years or so. This league is so much controlled by versatile. Long athletic wing types. The kevin durant and kawhi leonard. Lebron james's and excuse me. Jason tatum and jaylen brown falls into that. Maybe is not the same exact level of some of those. And i don't want it. I'm not even saying jaylen and jayson nor belong with the durant lebron tier but those kind of players determine a lot about postseason success. And if you've got a guy who is in that you know six seven six eight six nine range whose long who can handle who can shoot. Who can defend multiple positions who you can run offense through. I just think that's where the league is right. Now in the celtics have different levels of it but they have two of them. They have two of them. I as a broad outline..

"Getting in that way but to your point like they're a functional franchise like they're doing the right things they're having success or at least a degree of success this season and it's not based off some absurd off season move that made them slightly better in the short term. Julius randle is on. I believe that expiring contract from the year the one he signed before. I don't think he's gonna play like this all season long especially not shooting numbers but i think he can be a solid score. Rebound what he's ben for for most of his career and you are building from the ground up. You're establishing a good base quickly. Looks like he's going to be part of your rotation where that rotation remains to be seen we haven't seen anything really moby top and yet but he was widely regarded by a lot of people going into the draft. As being one of the you know the better picks in and around that range. Mitchell robinson like you want to talk about things that can then have staying power mitchell. Robinson has defensive stopper does like mitchell. Robinson is a really really good defensive player. I think he's going to be a terrific shot. Blocker weakside defender in this league for many years to come. You put all that together. It's like all right. Maybe finish the season. I don't know what the equivalent of like forty wins is shortened season. Thirty thirty five wins. And then you're onto something you can drive somebody else in the lottery next year and yak. You can point to free agents say look. We're not the bad news bears anymore. We're not the gang that can't shoot straight. We're run by a front office. That is showing. It knows what it's doing. We have a head coach. Who while he sure as hell is gonna burn. You ought to be baron granville. The most there the top five minutes. I think in the league. No the top. Two minutes in the entirely to italy wanted to. That's vintage tips. Just run these guys into the ground like you may be. Yes if you go there you know you give yourself a chance to win. Some of the quotes. I've seen from some of the players. They randall said this recently. Where it was paraphrasing. A little bit here. It's you know we trust the game plan. We know that we're going to go out there and beyond kind of a level playing field. That's kinda stuff. You heard in chicago. A lot from jimmy butler and others about coaching and working with tom tiptoes so even they don't make the playoffs. They finished ninth or tenth and the conference. But do it looking functional. That's a huge win for the knicks. That is cause for celebration. If you're new york because it has been quite literally decades since. They've.

"But you do need to do it in a way. That doesn't hamstring you. One quick note. It may not just be the timber wolves pick and maybe the warriors bad as as they've shown time so we'll see where this goes it may be too top five top eight top ten whatever in a strong draft and if weisman blossoms into a star still a little early for that the a good indication so far but yeah they may have that rare ability to pull off the smoothest transition from championship era dynasty era to the next era without having to bottom out in a major way or bottom out for too long like they they kinda did bottom out in terms of record this past year but weird circumstances with klay out and all that stuff but they might be able to thread that needle. It's really tough to do. And but you want curry therefore it if if at all possible the one thing i'll say just in supportive of your your framing which is like. Let him hit free agency. he'll be thirty four at that time right. And so how many teams even if the if the fear we're we're going to lose them for agency. How many teams are going to go. Max out of thirty four year old Especially a smaller guard who. They don't generally age as well probably. There's probably not a lot of risk there unless you know say it's charlotte. Who just wants to bring him home and like you know have plant a flag. You'll put up. Put a nice little know flagging their kappa. Whatever i don't think there's a lot of danger there. I guess the other danger though is more of are you. Are you doing a disservice as it insulting in some way to steph curry to say you know what we're waiting waiting for free agency. We we just have to see where we are in hand and how you look like. Is that the wrong way to treat a guy who's much the franchises at the wrong signal to send to other stars and their agents and their families because that is. There's a political reality to chris. You do have to factor in perceptions and just wanting to show that we're the kind of franchise that always takes care of its own. I get that. Although i would argue that writing checks the total forty five million dollars in that last season is thanks enough. I mean i mean you. And i know it's never that simple. It isn't right. It isn't worth watching. Good piece by michael pena check it out over at sl dot com It's up right now on the site. You decided it was time to upgrade your outdoor deck.

"It's more about this chris. When he lands in philadelphia to play joel embiid or he lands in brooklyn to play with durant or when land miami to play with jimmy butler and bam out a bio wherever he ends up is he insists on still being a thirty five to thirty eight percent usage guy is still gonna want to dominate the ball and the offense the extent that he always has because if he gets somewhere else chris especially gets to one of his preferred destinations. It's going to mean pairing up with at least one. If not two other all stars and those guys are going wanna just sit around watching hardened beat the ball into the ground so the question i have is. What's he willing to do at this stage at thirty one having gotten all the individual accolades possible but not the ultimate prize. And i apologize to the celtics. Two thousand seven eight. Talk to ray allen for the story and it's about that sacrifice that ray allen paul pierce and chemical that made that enable the celtics to be better than the sum of their parts wanting to three hall of famers but if they don't play in concert with each other and each take a step back and serious steps back that they took then then you can't get there and james harden if he does land with multiple other stars somewhere that that's going to be the first question. How do you make it work. Yeah i think the counter i would make to. That is twofold one. It was a lifetime ago. I get that. But every time i talk to people in oklahoma city. I'm reminded of just how comfortable hardened was playing off of durant and westbrook again. It was a long time ago. And james harden was a complimentary player back. Then he's an mvp can't last now. What three four time nba scoring champion. So things have changed significantly but in that role. It's misleading for people to rewrite history. Not saying you do it but like some people rewrite history and say harden one out of oklahoma city because he wanted a bigger role he did got out of oklahoma city because they made the catastrophic of not maxing him out and thinking that you know salary cap ramifications were more important than signing james harden. If they had signed there may be the same things would have happened. Maybe would have wanted to be an alpha somewhere else but we don't know that to be true the other side of it is to that like everything you say is right. But i can't fathom by. James harden saying i want to go to brooklyn and i'm going to be the same.

"Was just he was he calm ball and i think he as a ball player he has so much respect from everyone but then as a coach i think he just had a great connectivity and guys really liked plan for them and i know some people that work for they loved working for him and it's just really sad to see it condolences to his family. Look at our career. Well his his book came out this year. So you can go and read a whole bunch more about him. I was just impressive but how long career ahead. And how much of an impact. He made as a player as a coach on so many of the great players. In this league and you talk about him as a player. He lost a bit of his career to injury when he came back though comeback player of the year. And i think i just i just look at a man seventy years old. He just got diagnosed with this real quick and so sad right now when people pass. Because there's you can't go see him and talk to them. We can't tell them you love them very difficult for a lot of the nba family because for as much as we talked about all of his contributions on the court. There isn't a person who spent time with paul westphal. Who wouldn't tell you. Oh well he was even better as a human being. I mean that's the impact he had on everyone. He touched so our condolences to his family. And everybody who loved him all right guys coming up. the jumps. longest running soap opera is back. Oh yes it spicier.

"He was two or three years ago. I mean he's not making nearly as many impact. Defensive plays on a game to game basis now. Then he did back in the san antonio days not even close and it's because he has security this heavier burden on offense but he's not getting to the foul line ten times like he did against phoenix night. That's just not who he is as a player. And i think that you know. He's smart about how he manages the low but my question is he turn it back up when it matters in the playoffs and he didn't against denver. You look at two of those four losses against denver. They were both his fault right. And so i mean look. I expecting this to get worse by not necessarily better. I feel like his best. Years are probably behind him or if not he's right in the middle of them right now and it's just a huge contract to be carrying when you've already paid paul george it's gonna limit who you are as an organization. I'm not saying that. Their title window is closed. But i i would be goping. If i had to give that quite leonard deal and i wouldn't have said that you know when i signed him in two years ago i would've said well give him whatever he wants. But i don't think the last year and a half has played out very well for well. This is fascinating just because it kind of speaks to the dilemma organizations. Have they have a player. Who's so talented and in their prime but looking for that next contract mean. This goes back to The steph curry conversation at the very top of our episode a little bit But like you know your question of whether or not would be Or how long it could be really effective on. That contract is like yeah players. Who are in their mid. Thirties are probably not worth fifty million dollars. So it's just not what they productions not going to be there. Unless you're lebron james. So if kawhi leonard is lebron james then sure i feel great about it. He's probably not gonna look that way when he's thirty five years old but that's just like what it is. I in with everybody. So i don't really know what to do about that beyond offering him three years and hoping he doesn't get upset but he will so you got to offer the five and that's just what it is but i think a little higher on him in a little bit more optimistic about what he still has to offer and i don't see precipitous decline in his game As much as you do particularly on the defensive end where. I still think. He's an all defensive player us. Oh really yes so. That's basically kind of where i am with colossal..

"Trying to do and maybe better used as a number three guy to support players like yokich and jamal. Murray rather than trying to carry an offense himself. Do you think either team would would give the thumbs up to this deal. Michael and and who says no so like as much sense as this makes on paper i just don't see. Why either team actually does it. S thaddeus points out to make the money where you know. The nuggets would have to include significant salary. Because michael porter jr. only makes three point five million dollars. So that's gary harris and another player. So gary harrison paul millsap or will barton indra. Michael green Denver's just like not doing that like that's a lot of depth depth is really important for them and they are a thin and some cert- certain spots as it is For the raptors. You know pascal siakam even after we've just trashed him for nasa trash. We cry we. We're fairly criticized him for his poor play. So far is a standard play in the bubble but like the raptors take a significant step backwards and they full on are entering a rebuilt around michael porter. Jr. og an-and ob and fred vanfleet. I don't know what their path to title is Looking like that. And you know you're giving up one of the best defenders at his position for one of the worst defenders that size that. I think i've ever seen in michael porter jr. and without kyle lowry next year. Potentially he's a free agent this summer like they would just fall off a cliff and i don't like know messiah. Jerry is not under contract for a very long time. I could see him abandoning ship as well if were an actual trade that that went down because i just don't know what how you're going to reach the championship. And that's kind of what the expectations are for that organization right. Now you're are describing. Michael puerto juniors defense like your museum curators. You're like this is some of the worst defense that we've ever seen in the world. And yeah i here's the thing. If i was toronto. I would not do it because i personally don't amount of michael porter. Jr. believer i know. He's an incredible score. But if you're saying and he'd be like so good at scoring and so good at playmaking that he can make up for his defense in leader really efficient offense to you know big success. I say no and part of the problem is i. Don't really trust him as a playmaker. I think he's a guy who gets his own and doesn't necessarily set up his teammates very well. I don't see a ton of vision from him. And so if i'm trying to build an offense around him. I just don't think it's really going anywhere. People rightfully harp on the defensive. Stop because it's a disaster but it's the playmaking his teammates in making his teammates. Better stuff that. I actually questioned more. When you're talking about you know what is his feeling. What's his ceiling. Like as a player. Right i mean he. He's never going to be that multi-dimensional threat. I don't think it's going to be an incredible individual score. But those guys don't usually take you very far if i was denver. Michael i would do it because i would try to buy low on siaka. He's a natural third fit. He gives you a lot of what you need. You can take a lot of the pressure off of him from an offensive standpoint and you just hope the change of scenery it gets back to who he was near the contracts part does make it worse..

"Idea how he's adjusting. And it's amazing that he's not upset and then there's nothing about. Oh i wanna get out. I don't like this group and he's not going to harm route. I mean it's not surprising at all. Because that's never been steph is but i do think it just shows you not only his loyalty but just you know his his buying to that group it's It's pretty fascinating. And so on that point. I want to kind of push back to what you're saying. What could this future look like is steph destined to become like super dirk right where dallas had five six seven years there that they didn't really matter in the nba standings. You know in the in the playoff race and they were just riding. You know dirk. Nowitzki is You know golden years Right right straight to the end similar a little bit to kobe. bryant and l. a. The last three or four years they were not really competitive but the fans weren't really upset about that necessarily i mean there was some grumbling but they were still glad they could watch every single night. Is it the end of the world. If the warriors don't compete for a title over the next five years would they be happier and just you know more content with their with their place in the league. If they got to watch steph curry do what. He did it last night every once in a while. Maybe they're able to win a playoff series. If things break right is situation where they just need to change their expectations and just acknowledge. Hey look you know. A lot of things broke against us. We handed out a lot of big. Contracts is gonna be difficult for us to dig out of that but as long as we're competitive in as long as you get to cheer for number thirty who really cares. Could you see a super dirk era in golden state emerging where the fan base is happy enough. The is happy enough there selling tons jerseys. He gets to be an icon so he stays happy enough and they may be. Can retool things get a little bit more competitive two years down the road. We don't need to worry about your crazy trade scenarios. Michael what do you think. I think that would be really sad. You know the dallas mavericks have not won a playoff series since dirk since two thousand eleven when they won that title and like that i like the latter years of dirks career. Were just a bummer. Fifty to some fifty one teams in their sprinkled here and that like they were. They were competitive. Sure well michael. I agree with you but would you say it was a bummer for us. You know impartial. Outsiders who you know would just rather see him. Play for something meaningful did it. Seem like a bummer. To dirk to mark cuban or the fan base because ultimately those are the three parties. Who kinda matter here right. And i think mark cuban viewed it in his best interest..

"Who were going to criticize later So i mean like you can criticize him. But just don't go overboard and then to the people who say's beyond reproach she's a human being and he should be criticized when he deserves it. Yeah i think that you know with this group. If clay was out there unhealthy. I would say they would. Face that playoff mandate if you've got claes replacement shooting six percent on three pointers and wiggins looking really clueless and you're starting a rookie center defensively and james out. Do they have a single plus defender on the entire roster that starts to be the kind of situation where clay's contract this time one hand behind your back. Kelly oubre as you know just presence is tying your other hand behind your back and at some point. It's like. I'm not going to hold it against steph if you can't carry this particular group into the playoffs usually i'm pretty demanding and You know i. I expect a lot from a team's best players that when it becomes time to hand out criticism i tend to look there first. You know janas. It started with him in the playoffs. You know he just did not play his best. The bucks go out. He has to bear a lot of the responsibility. Kawhi leonard same deal. You know for the the clippers last year's playoffs. That's where i wanted to start the conversation. A lot of other people wanted to talk about playoff p. Paul george and doc rivers and whatever else that might be. I think the best player always needs to have that kind of magnifying glass. Approach but with steph like he could be sensational. I mean i think the he could actually average forty points a game this season and they still don't reach the playoffs. I think that would be possible. Not predicting that. But i think that's possible given what he's got to work with on this particular roster so i think i'm in almost give him a full pass for the season mode At the same time it matters I guess his spirit and how he plays and is able to make an impact. Is he able to show you sort of glimmers of hope for the future right and i think part of the problem in the first two weeks was there hadn't been a lot of that even when he's scoring thirty something points. It just felt empty. You know the whole the whole experience was just dreary guys. Were having a hard time and and they just couldn't get their spirit right a lot of frustration in terms of shot selection from his teammates Express both by hurry..

"Know so many people. And so it all kind of checked a lot of in terms of where i could really meaningfully make an impact and i think the sky's the limit for what this can truly means. I guess we want eventually the north stars get of a man or woman golfer on the tour but day there are so many partners and people want to To lean in on growing the game in a meaningful way that can provide resources whether it's internships throughout the golf world in in the business of golf that again create no access in awareness or whether it's Finding just i think authentic in clever ways of telling stories around how awesome. Hvac are in general. It's not just howard. I'm starting with our. But there's so many other species that have amazing golf programs or a potential to To lean in and really invest in that so For me it was. It was scott divine intervention to your point around. There are a lot of opportunities that come. You'll get thrown out as you in a lot of different ways where you really know. Lean in from your tom resource perspective. But this one check so many different boxes. It makes sense. Yeah you kind of mentioned the goal. Being you know tour players would be would be an ultimate goal. But i think you touched on there too as well that there's so many benefits from the game of golf just being involved in the game of golf access to so many different people. That's why i always encourage you know. Young young people go caddy like you get out on the golf course. You get to meet influential people. You got people that'll help connect you jobs like there's just so much power and opportunity around round the game of golf that I'm i'm glad to see. I guess i read an article. You said I think there's work being done all around the country to make golf more affordable more fun. More approachable what else is out there that inspires you in that regard. What you see being done that you know you want to help implement in any way in the game of golf is getting younger. And it's getting to a point where i've been plenty of country clubs across the country. They've live as part of the benefit. You'll be able to travel to amazing places to play golf and to your point around networking and really influential people. That are ingrained in the game. I think there's so much interest in how we can change the culture of it. Obviously respect tradition but change the culture of golf where it's just fun. It's less pretentious in less You know this ideal. That's that nobody really has access to on a grand scale and the kind of elitist type of perspective so for me. That is the mission. I it's not gonna happen overnight. But i think you can kind of feel a change even some of the guys that show up on tour that come from different backgrounds and creating more of a pipeline of to your point like you got five six seven year old kids that you don't have to go. You have a dad. That's a membership. Certain club just to get a club in hand and go play creating safe places for those kids to get access in follow through where we know. How much golf teaches about ourselves character in developing your personality your ability to hang out with different types of people from different walks of life like i could talk about it for days. This is awesome to know that there's an opportunity to change in the tide that respects tradition but also makes it more accessible and young and phone. I i can tell from. You know reading about otis and and and your endeavor there as we gotta get up to how we got to get up there and play with those guys make video like i know the guy that got me all hyped up like we got to make that happen. I want to know too on a different note like who are some of the dudes in the nba. That you've you've seen kind of get caught super hard by the gulf bug camp. Moore's out there all the time on the golf course. He's you know he's all in on the game on and we mentioned andrea but who are some of the other guys that might surprise us either super new to the game or kind of had some amador game and starting to get better and better. No doubt kyle. Lowry was one. We played probably four years ago all star weekend in new orleans. I didn't know he played in. I saw his game then. I saw him last summer in tahoe and was night and day different. He was a guy that is. He's he's more of a bug in terms of road trips like china. Look at the schedule. Where my off days. I got hong kong games role games and gothi so whereas that often you mentioned can't my brother actually when we were going up he never really me and my dad played ten twelve times. He probably played two or three. Never really got into it up until about three or four years ago. Jr smith is one that on a lot of people know loves the game he cleaned out that pine valley There's nothing left in that in his size and that prochell impressive effort. It's so those guys are the ones that are kind of leading the nba. Golf culture if you will but every year. I've had three rookies already. That asked me where. I have an extra set of clubs. Where can i go. Get lessons in the bay or google play and They're getting into us. I can only imagine that's going to continue to grow. I know the answer. I know these one answer to this question in so it might be Might give you have to give me two courses but like the number one course or or maybe the top two courses Because i think alphabetically and of course we're going to see a lot. This week is one of the way to go travel and play. That has been especially exciting for you. We can just throw it away. African kings barnes and scotland's one of my favorite courses. I've ever played. Just obviously being in scotland and on the home of golf. There's something unique about that place mixed with the history of saint andrews and carnoustie gleneagles. And all that. That's over there. Kings bars is one of my absolute favorites outside of that. I would probably say north citizen our backyard but it's pebble beaches. It's like that it's like that this earth it's like no shot is boring or every view that you have on the course you kinda feel like you're in another world. So those two ta malysz with gus fisher. What tell me about your trip to. Scotland was at a specific golf trip that you were on. Where else did you play over there. Yeah took my dad. His fiftieth birthday About five or six years ago. Now we did mostly the the east coast scholar right near so right near saint edges. We did all the old course. The carnoustie gleneagles The fairmont hotel. That's right there. I think they just played a A terminal a european tour at the kid. I think it was called. Or one of those two courses who played that kings barnes and so that was And you go. In the summer we went in june and it was one of the wildest experiences you heard about how much daylight there is so we go play gleneagles in back to the hotel and play another round. That course in. It'd be like ten o'clock. Can we still be out there grinding. That was actually probably my first actual golf trips. Where we are out of the country is pretty awesome. What's like for for someone like you to go around. In scotland amuse a different you get different reception to people recognize you nearly as much in a foreign country. Like scotland as they would in the states. I'd have to go back now that we got three chips under our belt because those ripe Twenty fourteen right before we want our first one. So i kinda y'know six three and i don't walk in a room and everybody's like that So it was. It was like we say is right on eighteen. We finished them. We went over to a low pulse literally across the street. We walked over there. Nobody bothers walked in. A little scotch. Stays is crazy. So i'll know what it'd be like now back but i. It's worth the effort if i can make have. Let's talk match three point you us. I don't know if you did. You beg your way into it. I mean i know you were tweeting about you. The second one. I've gotta get in. The next one is what happened after that talks already going on. That was the way into it. Yeah sometimes you gotta beer market yourself a little bit. I put that out there on twitter. Right in the middle of mass. There's probably right before now. Tom has made a shot from the fairway but From the from the. I did almost what two years ago with. Tiger field was awesome in the way that they put together. Awesome four and a half hours. Whatever was just math fun. Trash talking good.

Craig kentucky straight bourbon whiskey bardstown kentucky forty seven percent alcohol by volume allies. Craig reminds you to think. Wisely drink wisely. Let's get back steph curry. I wanna know. I think there's a kind of under reported story at least in the world of golf as to what you've with the howard golf team and i wanna go back to the origin of that story how it ended up How you ended up reviving their golf program and why that really you know their story resonated with you it happen kind of out of nowhere so about a year and a half ago. I went to To howard to do a screening for a documentary that we were relaunching Caught emmanuel and we had a bunch of students come. We did a panel afterwards talking about the tragedy that happened in charleston south carolina back in twenty sixteen and as part of our university culture there so many talented students there that have so many different passions and After we did our panel and there's no wrote a students down the front stage. And i went to go when you go actually talk to people in person. I wanted to go say hi to everybody and Somebody was interested in designing shoes. And somebody wanted to get into production. Somebody had an idea for a new restaurant business. And i got to. This guy named otis ferguson. The fourth who was passionate about the game of golf was kinda directing their club team that they had but he had been trying to exhaust every effort to bring back the division one program that was decades New removed from from from the program so once he said you know howard golf and he had you know this idea of of of what it would take to get back. We'll start turning about what that actually look like and what it would take to to get that support and get that off the ground running and about six months later we had a plan of making a significant contribution to the to the program and hopefully the next six years will be able to create an dow that will not create scholarships for both men and women to go play for the howard. Bison golf team. We want to create a marquee program around golf. We have an amazing coast. Anterior who is taking the reins for this first season and Gal golfers that are on the team some of the interested in playing over the next couple of years and The goal obviously going to get some more access to the game. Some hopefully some minority communities. That i know there's talent there but they don't necessarily have the resources in the access. Secretive pipeline in the north star. I wanna play for our golf and do it. In a different way get some some satori professionals through the program hopefully but also just exposed into the world golf. I think a lot of people kind of get wrapped up in seeing what the product tv is and thinking about. You know what that would that y ranges but the world of golf in the business of there so many opportunities in ways to create a meaningful career. It's just about you know that awareness in had access and and People being billion so our golf is a is a great starting at direction. So couple things on this whole story kind of you know. I guess captivated me a little bit one. I'm sure you get approached about things like this all the time. And you just mentioned that specific screening. You know people are coming up to you saying this this and this this kind of idea in into your you play professional basketball. Not golf in three. As far as i can tell. I don't know what you're you're linked to dc is or why howard in particular so you kind of touched on some of the reasons there but but what was it necessarily. Why did you feel the need to get involved and to help promote the game of golf in this way. The first two pointer Just again my passion for golfing wanted to find a creative lane. That's out the to me to grow the game and grow access to the game that can reach down to the next generation. Because i know how much opportunity there is there and then anytime that you could support an hp c. You mean we as a lot of conversations about how impactful those universities are the amount of talent that comes out of those schools year after year even after this summer and all the social climate that we've we've we've been navigating. I think it's a is an opportunity. One where golf out has been able to really storyteller on really create meaningful traction in energy. But that's a total disservice to you know so many people. And so it all kind of checked a lot of in terms of where i could really meaningfully make an impact and i think the sky's the limit for what this can truly means. I guess we want eventually the north stars get of a man or woman golfer on the tour but day there are so many partners and people want.
NBA star Steph Curry on playing golf through the years
"Right stephane. Thanks so much for joining us. I want to start right away with background before. We came on start recording. You already give me bunch excuses about how you haven't been playing a lot so have feeling to know how this is going to go. But i i gotta know some back on. I think it is important. How you got into golf. How much you play grown-up all this started happening before we get into some of the events we've We've seen you play in no the The i've got all the disclaimers and qualifiers from our game got. Those one liners locked up. But i started plan back in By eight or nine my dad. He played six years in the nba. So it's kind of summertime. Hobby is normal kind of father son type of situation. You take me out drive a golf cart. He cut down a little putter. That i'd go hit with In that i started getting more and more Passionate about china learn how to play and by ten eleven playing full rounds them all play low high school golf for three years and then from there may have been bit by the bug ever since it is one of the things look forward during the most when. I'm outside of the court last similarities. To you know the the encore like ball competition what you experience in the in the league in how. I kind of transition that to china. Take everybody's money on the course so good. I was gonna say this from for later. But i want to understand what the gulf culture is like during the nba. Season right because you know guys season kind of your typically goes into june for you guys but you know releases into summer and you can play golf in the summer. How often are you playing during the season. Are you traveling with clubs. Do you need a certain time period on a road trip to be able to play on the road. Have the set course every city you go to. How's that work. All the above. I think the best way to explain it is I guess our team. We are in a little bit more freedom over the last five six seven years to be able to kind of even manipulate the schedule on road trips a little bit to bagan some golfing though so we'll probably play like twice a month during the season. Which is solid Mostly on the road coach. Kerr's amazing it. A go into a city will play. That night might have an early next morning but if we have an off day he'll give us a window to go play in the morning and then cash the plane to go to the next city and then we have the warrior golf team championship. Run a myself. Andrei igwe dollar klay thompson will play. We'd have some front office. Guys that will go out so we had to accrue whenever that wind opened up the group techs going. Hey time we plan where we're going so there's a. There's a golf culture for sure in. Our team is growing across the league. I think every year. I find like five ten guys that are either asking me about what club they should get or where they should get lessons. Or are asia coast cool which i'll bring in clubs on the plane type stuff so we get all those questions is by the by the year is pretty awesome to know. How much did you know that other people are enjoying the game. As much as i do because i think that was one thing especially for golf. Fans that stuck out about the last dance is how often jordan was like as soon as something was over a guy no no. We're going to go play golf. We're going to go play golf and be like a thing that is continually growing. I see andrea vall on twitter all the time. He's obviously you know a huge golf fan. But you know. I gotta be honest. I didn't really understand the depth of your game until you played in the ellie mae classic in two thousand seventeen. So what was you touched on high school golf but have you. Had you played in any golf tournaments since high school before you took on that challenge. Since high school tournament. We play the american century up. In lake tahoe. A play a maybe five or six summers out of out of the eight before i played nellie mae and that one is different experience. Because i think. If i'm on my game i should be like your top eight favorites a win even though haven't won it yet but when you get on alienate classic on the web dot com when it was a korn ferry now. I'm marie list. How far my game is from a professional that earns money is trying to carve out a career in this game. But i feel like i can hold my own so i had like this ghana irrational confidence in that respect but when i got not to the to the first day i i should say i did the practice round and all that really learning how they approach like the preparation for the week and a i'll put so much stress on like the practice rounds like trying to score and then i yo- you're gonna burn yourself out before that's thursday friday. That's not it. I learned that the first six holes. I was mad. I made a bogey or something like relax so it was. It was such a cool experience in five finals. Then play in front of nineteen thousand fans in crazy gentler russia's out in the court there is absolutely nothing to no way for me to really express how nervous i was on that i even had call him a name. I damn near blacked out on the on. The i just hoped i hit it got in the air it was. It was really kind of out of body experience so well. That's not your. It's not your sport sport. You go just go play. This is not your thing and you know you're doing it for a ton of eyeballs. Got to be that kind of feeling. One hundred percent and other thing that i learned which i don't think people appreciate washing these guys week after week after week is allies exhausted like mentally and physically Being in that mode for five hours straight like pre round during around post round. I get getting engulfed sheet. You know there's athletes out there but it's a different experience of staying locked in engaged in all the different ways that they approach kind of being on top of the game. It's is Is pretty awesome.

The previous three seasons going into the very beginning last year they were still fourteen points better per one hundred possession. When curry was by himself? There is no number that will prove that he didn't affect the game in a way. Like yes I know. He's not as Physical Yester- possessions playoff of series where I'd be like yeah. This is some of his limitation showing up here but the way he freaked everybody out which I think teams got more used to but in the peak of this thing it was five live guys going.

"You need to know about Steph Curry new category. I one greatest shooter of all time and it's not close. I actually think there's no argument if if somebody's GONNA bring up Steve Kerr being at forty five percent from three ever leave from even even. He admits it's embarrassing it. It is embarrassing and it's not because it's just the volume the shot part of it. I mean I don't want to just look at someone's shooting percentage and go. Oh this guy's higher so that means he's higher than you because right now I mean seth is actually higher rank career. Three point shooter than Steph. Volume is what separates. It's the volume and it's imagine if he didn't have to take bailout shots. Imagine if Steph was like you know what I'm GonNa do just I'm GonNa take instead of twelve of these. I'm going to take six perfect ones yet. I think he'd go for six. So it's not just the numbers. It's what what I've seen and it's also here's the other thing muscle memory on corner. Threes is completely different than dribbling up in transition or catching around the screen. Like guys can can find a way to make money for a long time in this league just taking thousands in the corner and knowing. Hey this is my shot and if I have it just be ready to go. He had every I'm talking in past tents here but he had everything he still would hitch a mid range on a pull up. Stop you go buy it. And he can hit that. That's why he's the greatest shooter and it isn't debatable. Because he can pull up and make it look good from anywhere and any stylish shot off the catch off the dribble office screen in a way that I don't think we're ever GONNA. That's how special it is. I don't think you're ever GonNa see that again will Ryan. We both played basketball. Played last night in person would shocking about him is how fast the motion from. I have the ball. I'm not realizing that Steph. Curry's about to shoot to his shooting and how simple it is. It's it's almost like watching. A lever is a lot like car factory or something those levers that just add seatbelts to thing it's two movements and and a quick wrists flip and it's the same every time it's the same at the top like it was the dirk thing when I was always trying to figure out derk Dirk could take a shot and have have it be a mess underneath his legs and his torso. Everything could be turned. But as long as it's okay out of your hands then you're fine and I I honestly think had the greatest hand eye coordination of any of ever seen consulting with bird bird could take share. You could spin him around twenty times and it could just get off the exact same shot. Whatever and same thing for For Curry there's three members of the fifty forty five ninety club for percentages.

What does that mean? We have chaos, right? Came horrid on this hot that. You'll we have chaos. Do they have chaos? Do they have what for them would be considered to be a measure of normalcy? Right because for them. Kevin durant? Not being there is like a previous time where they had a bunch of other stuff that was going and that was going very well. It is looked like the successive. Kevin Durant is a measure of chaos within this team. And then the fourth border once he's out of there. Hey didn't seem to miss them. Steph curry is like I yes, it feels good to be back. In my comfortable chair. Well in times like this. I like to think of the completely hypothetical entity known as the Kevin Durant hive how do they process this game because we know they don't exist. But hypothetically, what would they feel if they heard Steph curry say what he said after this game last night if we can throw to that video for four or football, please. During the time out we all looked at each other. There are a couple of smiles in terms of like what that meant for us as a team in the guys ever going to step up in those moments on again next minute mentality. Draymond said that some point in that time out. And so this feels chaotic to me insofar as the warriors did a lot of work to get. Kevin durant?

There might have been a second shooter. There that one I'm not totally sure on could have been a little action on the grassy knoll, bro. But my point is conspiracy theorists love to run rampant. With this stuff. And if you actually take the time to research this stuff, you will realize in pretty short order that. Yes, the moon landing happen in this is to be the bigger part of this story, though is that curry he's just too cool. Man. There's nothing he can't handle. You know what I'm saying? Like, he just does everything the right way. And how about the fact his party in Oakland that he's throwing so cool. This morning fans lining up around the corner to try and get tickets. It was the the the curry party Friday night at FOX theater in Oakland. So incredible man Steph curry just throwing that parlay for Oakland. That's curry baby. That's curry. There's nothing he doesn't do right. Except it shuts down the stretch against the rockets, and when you're up by twenty or you have a six point leaving the ball the minute eighteen left other than that though. There's not a damn thing that Steph curry doesn't do right. All right. Good stuff. Margus coming up next, title, San Jose, Sharks hockey, my friend. Jamie Baker
Stephen Curry's Moon Landing Shoes to Be Auctioned off to Benefit STEM Programs

That tips off ten thirty eastern tonight from oracle in plans to sign the shoes and seldom in an online auction with the proceeds donated to a local stem education program in the bay area. He's doing this about a month after joking. He says that the moon landing was
A rare misfire for sharpshooting Stephen Curry this season
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. A rare misfire for sharpshooting Steph curry this season by Scots ler. It's hard to know what to believe these days, the nineteen sixty nine moon landing and walk if Steph curry doesn't believe it can it be true look closely at those pictures in the background you'll see Starbucks now. I hear Kevin Durant believes the warriors faked their visit to the Hamptons three summers ago curry in the fellas didn't really fly cross country to court K D. Those were holograms created in one of team cone or Peter Guber movie studios fake love. And now we're supposed to believe that curry shooting fifty percent from beyond the three point arc going into Wednesday's game against the Toronto. Raptors the stats said curry was shooting fifty percent on threes. Ninety one for one hundred eighty two curry came back to earth slightly Wednesday in the warriors one hundred thirteen ninety three loss to the. Raptors he hit two of eight from long range lowering his percentage to forty eight point nine still a good number. This is Curry's tenth season and his previous bass was forty five point five in twenty eleven twelve his career Mark is forty three point nine. So what's up with the fifty? He's maturing said Bruce Fraser, the warriors assistant coach who works with curry daily shooting drills post practice and pre-game. That's it. We're all maturing. Mrs never bothered him before Fraser said, but I think they bother him less now so Curry's chill factor on three point shooting is now below zero his conscience has frozen over it does seem to this casual observer that curry has been even less inhibited with his shooting this season. Kyle Korver has been dubbed threes. So curry is Lord of the letter flies. He just sees the game better Fraser said but fifty percent. That's x Ray vision. Nobody in basketball history has pushed the limits of three point shooting. Like hurry has what he's done with threes in the shooting equivalent. What he's done with threes is the shooting equivalent of a moonwalk but fifty percent for such a high volume shooter is absurd. Take it from a man who knows Steve Kerr. The warriors head coach is number two on the season. Three ball percentage. Chart. Fifty two point four in nineteen ninety four ninety five top dog is Korver. Fifty three point six in two thousand nine ten Kerr shadow over fifty percent in a season three times. But where curry is attempting an average of ten point seven threes per game. Korver incur each shot. Two point one per game in their best seasons in corpus highest volume season. He attended six threes per game and shot forty nine point two percent said curb before the game you would expect fifty percent from a guy who's just going to stand there be wide open and shoot three of them in a game. There have been a couple of guys who've done that pause for laughter. Continue. But in terms of flying around like Steph does shooting off the dribble shooting the volume of threes that he does shooting the half court shots at the end of quarters fearlessly. It's almost impossible to do that over the course of a season. But I don't put anything past staff. That's for sure volume shot. That's where Curry's three balling strange credulity on the list of career three pointers made. Curry is number five with two thousand two hundred twenty two which is seven hundred fifty one behind leader Ray Allen, but Allen played thirteen hundred regular season games. Curry's played less than half that six hundred forty three. Everyone ahead of curry played at least eleven hundred twenty six games on this season's list of most accurate three ball shooters. Nobody among the top eighteen takes even half as many threes per game as curry it's easier to make threes. If you take a lot of them tell that to James harden, the only player in the league who shoots more. Threes than curry hardened shoots eleven point one per game. And makes thirty seven point three percent. If curry hits the fifty percent Mark or even if he has a routinely spectacular season of shooting threes Kurd deserves an assist playing incurs flowing offense. Designed for Cari has allowed him to evolve. As a long ball shooter from crazy. Good to shot up. Not only did Kerr design an offense to maximize Curry's talents. The coach also blended Klay Thompson, and then Kevin Durant into the mix. So seamlessly that defenses can't concentrate on curry crazy stat going into Wednesday curry Thomson and Durant where each taking an average of nineteen point seven shots per game. If curse oh smart in the second half of the season. Let's see him. Get DeMarcus cousins nineteen point seven shots per game. Two as for curry is it possible for him to join his own exclusive fifty ten club fifty percent on threes. For season while attempting ten per game. Sure said Jonas Repco on Wednesday. He could shoot sixty percent, right. And man could walk on the moon.
Everyone back on track
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Everyone back on track. The band was back together finally on Monday. The warriors were at last their complete selves for the first time in five weeks. Draymond green tech, Stephen curry. Yup. Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson present and accounted for. It's good to get back to who. We are green said four all stars on the floor together. The ones who went eight when one or more were missing and ten one when they all play together. Make that eleven one after a let the good times roll kind of night at oracle and one hundred sixteen to one oh eight win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday. Green finally returned to the court after missing fourteen of sixteen games, including eleven straight due to a toast brain for the first time since November fifth all four warriors all stars were available earlier in the day. The warriors learned that they had received sports Illustrated's annual sports person of the year award. Yes. Awkward wording when a team wins the award. The award is given for a team that best exemplifies ideals of achievement and sportsmanship. But in recent weeks that special glow that is surrounded the warriors for the better part of four years has been slightly dimmed the shine a bit tarnished. There was the November twelfth incident in Los Angeles when green and Kevin Durant had words and green subsequently was suspended for one game combined that chemistry breakdown with the absence of Stephen curry for eleven games because of a groin strain and the first four game losing streak of the Steve Kerr era. And there was valid reason for concern. The warriors were as Kursad banged up physically and banged up. Spiritually could the magic come back short answer? Yes. The warriors played with familiar joy and energy Monday night during Curry's absence. It was so obvious. What was missing the superstar the point machine, the heart and happiness of the warriors greens value is just as intense different. But also. And as tangible he pushes the pace, he's tough and emotional and smart and without him. The warriors simply aren't the same Kerr calls what green plays with a force curry said that it felt different with green. We were playing really really fast and excited. They were quintessential green moments in Monday's game. Like when he was left alone at the arc drained, a three pointer and emphatically waved his hand at the defender indicating the timber wolves might wanna guard him more closely at the end of the first half with four point four seconds left on the clock curry tossed green Alaba under the basket. It would have been an easy bucket but green swung. It back to Klay Thompson standing beyond the three point arc. Thompson nailed the three at the buzzer to send the warriors off the floor pumped up and celebrating. That was probably the play of the game Kerr said just an amazing leap and pass an awareness of brilliant, play green cracked. I was gassed I had no energy to go for the layup. So I threw clay the ball if you were trying to analyze the body language between. And Durant for any signs of strain. Good luck with that nothing was visible to the I for the most part the team looked like the same one that played together last season as we found out. It's just not the same without green without them altogether. With all four of their stars on the floor. The warriors have a point nine hundred ten winning percentage without one of their key players available. They have been average appoint five hundred team sometime in the next few weeks. The big four will become the big five with the addition of DeMarcus cousins who practiced in Santa Cruz for the first time Monday, how that works will be fascinating to watch one more novelty in a season that has been anything. But a repeat of last season. It feels different this year Kursad before the game. He was talking about the different combinations of players that he has been playing together. But he could have been talking about everything the whole season to this point in June during the finals Kerr joked about how he was going to keep his group motivated this season. The topic came up. Regularly in training camp as it turns out. It's not an issue the injuries the internal drama. The addition of cousins the introduction of the warriors to what Kerr calls the real NBA a league of ups and downs and strife, in difficulty has meant there has been no boredom. No going through the motions the way there wasn't times last season. The warriors haven't looked dominant in the first quarter of this season. And the Western Conference is confusing. Only three point five games separate the top eight teams in the conference. And if the season ended today, Houston, Utah and San Antonio will be left out of the playoffs. It has been a weird start nine of the warriors next fourteen games are at home and two of the road games are in Sacramento. The warriors are staying close to home and our complete. This might be when they gained some mental and some separation from the other teams in the west the band is back together. And that's a scary thing for the rest of the league and Killian is a San Francisco Chronicle columnist Email AK leeann. SF chronicle dot com. Twitter at an Killian.

"Basketball game tomorrow not gonna have Steph curry for that one. But he will be back this weekend.

And with curry not be here on this warriors team leading the way leading nation the way he does it's been missed, and, you know, dream ought to be back as well. What I was reading today.
