Jerry West allegedly talks recruiting Kawhi Leonard to Clippers
"Start with what i think is the most fascinating story of the day little offbeat little out there little weird but absolutely interesting. Do you know where i'm going. I disagree with you about all that but go ahead and explain you. Don't think it's fascinating and this guy is full of crap. No the voice okay. Let's let's set it up so this is a story that started bubble up earlier this week. A guy named johnny wilks is suing jerry west for not making the two point five million dollar payment that he was promised in exchange for his help in landing by the clippers and the clippers went on denied. The claims and said jerry. West didn't even know this guy today way. When did the cooper say that in their statement clippers or providing. Nba evidence that these allegations are false. Right but i've never heard the cooper see. You never knew this guy okay. I'll read the clippers statement lawsuit kabajani wha- replete with inaccuracies allegations are baseless. The clippers are fully cooperating the nba in this investigation Blah blah blah clippers are providing the nba with evidence that the allegations are false. They never denied specifically nine. That's johnny wolverine on the voice mail. So there's a voicemail and so the clippers are out denying it. Meanwhile this guy named johnny wilkes released a voicemail that clearly jerry west right. No no dispute that it's jerry west right right The jerry west left on johnny wilks phone hit that hordic. Excuse me this. Is jerry calling You know. I really want to thank you for know trying to help her. This morning. that everyone over the lakers can thank going getting I just. I had hard to believe that he would want to go to. This show. Very would not even be winning. Getty name in the paper. And he wouldn't be the face of the franchise s richer might be the best player on the team but Hope things are well and will again. I really really appreciate everything. you've done. we will I'll keep your prized. What goes on. But i do wanna get together with you privately and and love to take you to dinner and even sam if he's arou- so we can so i can lease they married to you guys for being so generous and helpful. I'll take care talk you sometimes so so really really appreciate your help really appreciate your offering to take him to. Dinner is a long way from offering him. Two point five million dollars. And did you see the other stuff. This guy wilks is alleging was on the table. That's the most fast. Okay so now. I know why the nba opened up an investigation. Or yesterday you ask me well. Why if this guy is just some money grubber. Why would the nba care. Here's why they care in the lawsuit wilkes also alleges that the if leonard signed with the clippers leonard uncle dennis would receive a house in southern california along with travel expense and that clippers owner steve balmer would fund a hundred million dollar marketing campaign for kawhi leonard. So if if any of that is true that is a blatant violation of the. That's circumventing the salary cap rules. You're giving him value more over and above what his contract pays right. But i think this guy loses all credibility when he says that jerry west was going to give them two point five million dollars just for helping him talked to qui- jerry west doesn't need johnny wilks to talk to anybody and so i have trouble believing this guy. Johnny wilks is. I mean if lie about that chances are you would lie about this. One hundred million dollar marketing campaign the slush fund for uncle. Danettes you are. You actually think this guy. Johnny wilks is telling the truth. Look it's the clippers. It's the clippers you know. They were desperate for desperate for them. They're nowhere without kawhi. He's become the second where them while they're nowhere nowhere with them to write But but this is the centerpiece of their france. The cornerstone that they're building around. Why would they not go to the wall and do anything. It took to get cold leonard. Well i i think the opened an investigation because of those last two points. They made the gets a house and travel expense account and the one hundred million dollar marketing campaign for quiet. You can't do that. Because then free agency is a complete sham. It just goes to ever has the most money if you can offer all that other stuff. So that's why they're looking into it now. They're looking into it. Because this johnny wilks lawsuit consistent. Johnny woke lot is going to say this stuff wouldn't even come up without johnny walk so there's already credibility in the lawsuit. I don't think well no. I disagree that the johnny looks credible in any way. But here's what. Here's what. I'll say i've known jerry west for thirty years. I don't think jerry west would be this stupid now. Of course i could be wrong but jerry's been one of the most upfront direct. And he's almost too candid. Your can be very very candid with everybody. He deals with the i n for johnny. Will you know it's. He's shooting at the king here. Johnny wilks and there's so many people know jerry and he has such a body of work that would indicate he would never do anything like this. That i don't think johnny luke's can win. Unless he has another audiotape. Where with jerry sing. I'm going to give you two point. Five million if you get us why. I think his lawsuits dead in the water. What do you think well. you know. it's interesting. I think there might be something here. Yeah i don't know how you're getting there. This is this is steve bomber. This is a guy who's made of money. This was a guy who's desperate to get his team on the map in los angeles where they are not on the map. Frankly haven't been on the map and certainly worn on the map before qui- so is it. Possible that steve balmer offered extra monetary benefit to kawai in order to get them. I think that's worth an investigation.
The Los Angeles Clippers Have Fired Doc Rivers
"Another myth another legend was fired Bob and I don't you were shocked as I was I, didn't see this coming where Doc rivers we had on the podcast you and I are both huge fans of doc as a human being as a coach. I don't. I. Don't know where I stand right now. Obviously, he is blown some big leads the latest being one in the bubble. Denver and with a team that let's face it. Steve. Balmer paid doc rivers big money to win a championship not not be eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the in the western conference semifinals so Valid or not valid to let doc rivers go. I knew that we all knew that losing another three to one was not a good thing to have on on anyone's resume to do it twice in. Three years. And the do it with this owner as you said, who invested the overpaid for the team I think even by modern standards that teams are worthy he he got a little giddy with his two billion dollar plus purchase of the clippers the Lakers we could see but not the clippers. So okay, he's invested in this and I worried about it a little bit but I didn't think it would happen. I thought it was a possibility of Steve Bomber angry. But, I, thought it was an of course couching it. It's mutual ha you know coming out of the usual walk away from that money it's the modern. Thing to do that say it's mutual nationally I felt badly because I am very proprietary to a doctor and I have communicate with him already. But. It's understandable that an owner. Successful businessman. Odyssey's bomber is a highly successful with that investment. I I don't know what I don't know Jeff is the level of his own personal basketball acumen. I don't know how much he thinks. He knows he knows more doesn't knows more than that part I don't know you know. Here's what I'll tell you about. Here's what I'll tell you I. Don't think this was all Steve. Balmer. My guess is Jerry West who they pay a ton of money as a consultant. Okay. As a consultant. Yeah. Good point is Jerry West played a significant. In this move and now the question will be. What what's next in the big thing with doc and you and I know this we've been around enough. Great human being great communicator. But the biggest words that you would hear from players about doc dating back to the Celtics was a little bit of a Country Club, right? It's it's easy doctors a practice much. Older players veterans love, them. Again it's where you want to go to and the latter part of your. Extend Your career. and You wonder if that played a huge part here because certainly the clippers didn't look like there were in tiptop condition in the bubble weather. It was Knox fault whether it's back that mantras Harrow had a death in the family and didn't come into the bubble too late whether it's a fact that Lou Williams left the bubble and came back the Patrick Beverley. There were there were a lot of issues. But ultimately. It. Probably does follow on doc in a sense that you had the pieces you had the pieces. You shouldn't be watching if you're the clippers, you can't be watching the Los Angeles Lakers right now compete for
Why The Clippers Collapsed
"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.
NBA Players, Owners Meet To Discuss Plan Of Action
"Get back on track WHOA Jeez here. Thankfully to tell us what might happen here. Obviously, it's a fluid situation Adrian. I. Guess. The first thing we want to ask you is, what are we expecting today like what is going to happen today meeting Liz I have no idea what's going to happen today guys yesterday was. A remarkable day and one that I don't think any of us who cover the NBA. WHO Who've covered sports and and in my generation Bo forget but to set the table for today. The players having eleven am meeting here in the bubble. And the owners have a board of governors call at the same time. I'm pulled eleven am obviously that'll be done virtually and so simultaneously, those two groups we'll be meeting and the players. I think after a night, it was an emotional day. It was an emotional meeting they had. With most of the players in the bubble coaches were there last night there came a point where? The players asked the coaches to leave so they could hash it out amongst themselves. The teams I was told broke up into groups. and then they're going to continue that conversation this morning but I mean what's at stake is simply This season and are the players as a group going to decide to move forward. Continue the playoffs by all indications that the three games that are scheduled today. Not. Going to be played, the League hadn't officially. announced it but every indication we got in the last night regardless of what they decide moving forward that those three games later in the day. Wouldn't be played, but the players have more to work through and talk through. And consider a lot of different. Consider a lot of different scenarios. And and ultimately consequences of what it would mean to shut this bubble down. You're there in the bubble woes and you could get and I just WanNa know like what is what's the feeling is like does feel like NAM empty and just spooky and? What's that feeling like? I. Think the last several days keyshawn. and. You could feel a building you could watch on I think you guys could watch. On television and and read what people are saying and see. The interviews with George Hill and Fred Van Vliet. and. The emotion that players were carrying. Since the shooting of Jacob Blake earlier. In the week. And how that resonated not just all over the country. But here. and. On top of the emotion and Guys have been here a long time and it wears on you and guys miss families guys feel. At times like their captive in this place it I get it. It's a resort like I. Don't mean to. It is a resort and I get it and. All of us are lucky to be able to work. In, this country right now and a lot of people can't but there is a cumulative effect about being away this long. And you add on top of that. the horrific nature of that shooting. Another in a series of them in years of decades. Of them a century of them and so. data impacted this place at impacted those inside. And It was a domino effect yesterday of once. The bucks made the decision to knock him out of the locker room and not play. And then how it impacted the other teams and lead to that meeting last night that was pretty rot times. The to La teams the LA clippers. The Lakers have two of the hour say most powerful voices in professional sports in Genie Boston. Steve, bomber what type of influence can they have on the rest of the NBA owners to get something done in favor of the players? It's a good question I think the question is. And I think what the players Were spending last night doing. And and previously, it's been an ongoing conversation here. But is there something and and I and I know in the meeting last I a lot of players. Disgusted I know CJ mccollum was who's an executive on the players committee or on the on the Executive Committee of the Players Association. mccomb the Blazers Jaylen Brown the Celtics war leaders. in the Union and top players in league talked about having a plan of action and the bucks in the locker. Room. In those hours after that they after they decided not to play. Working with their own ownership in Milwaukee to get on the phone the Attorney General of the Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin to talk about ways to move forward. To try to impact. that. Particular case. In in their state in Kenosha. And so you saw players already beginning to do that yesterday now. How does that continue today? What what players are asking themselves I know what organizations are asking players when they got back to the rooms. Last my back to the hotels. What is the endgame if we don't play? One is that what is it that we wanNA accomplish outside of the bubble outside of this environment outside of the platform that you have right now to play. play NBA Games and speak to the world through. Through this. What does that look like and so I think that's all going to be part of the conversation today with the players and with the owners if they kinda reconnect after those two meetings.
Microsoft plans to erase its entire carbon footprint since 1975
"Microsoft announced that they plan to fight climate change with the gold becoming better than carbon neutral by two thousand thirty and they WANNA retroactively offset all the countries emissions from its entire history by twenty fifty. You know how I've been telling you. Wall Street subway cares about sustainability. Well I think that's part of the reason why mcso Stock Rally Free Bucks today. The Times they are changing cubs great track records investors a fortune in recent years so they now have the leeway to take a stand so a few moments ago. I sat down with great Sachin Adela. He's the bankable CEO of Microsoft in his first ever appearance on the show. Take a look so real reminding okay and we gotta talk about because this is a day where you basically redefined this company and became what I think is the capitalist leader doing something. That's maybe more important than than just earning per share. You're doing impact per share. Why I what thank you for being so awesome to have you here on campus? You're absolutely right. It's a big day. A in fact it's I would say a big decade in front of all of us and today's start. What is I think about our mission to empower every person in every every organization on the planet to achieve more the fundamental thing is? Let's put more depth to what achieve more looks like for the world to who us. It means we need of course as a company we need to be able to drive brought economic growth but it's just on economic growth. But it's about really having that core inclusive growth trust in technology and all that we do should lead to a more sustainable work and so today's announcements were that last part which is commitments rear making by twenty thirty to become become carbon negative. Do we in fact go back in history all the way to our founding in nineteen seventy five look at all of our energy consumption from electricity and other sources and and make sure that we recapture that and of course. We're also know that it's not just about what we do. It's the ecosystem and the innovation. We need breakthrough so even putting a billion dollars in an innovation fund. So we're very excited. We know it's a small part quite frankly. All of us remember to do to achieve more but unless assured small out twenty fifty. If you don't do these things what does it mean for both the planet and of course for Microsoft I mean the signs that think at this point is very clear if the the temperatures rise I think the impact. It's going to have unless talk about the economy. The economy all enjoy or the capitalist system that we all arleen joy. I think we'll fundamentally jeopardy if the planet which is the resource the factor of production that has fueled all of our capital else capitalist. Society will be dangerous to me. That's the existential priority. And for us as a company for now it is all about making sure the commitments is the start off then ensuring that we are living up to those commitments. So I think it's really twenty thirty twenty fifty that we're looking forward to doing part your rigorous stanton. Your company is rigorous about numbers. This is the first time I've heard anybody lay out an actual let's say yardstick. That's hard and it's not just for your company but your suppliers and even for the users of your technology. How can you enforce it? And what does it mean when someone says you know what the we're not playing ball look. This is not the first time we've done these things first of all. You're absolutely right. We have to be rigorous and it's not about making commitments or making claims. It's about fall through so for example when be changed some of the benefit policies Just say that anybody who works at Microsoft even if they are a vendor will get yet the parental leave or sick leave. We had to pay for it from piano because we fully expected that the companies that are employing these these people are probably not going to be able to increase wages. So in some sense we have account. We've done our homework. We know what our emissions are in both on all the scope scope one one two and three and we feel that. We've had a bottoms up plan on how we go about it. We were one of the things that has really helped us is the carbon tax which we introduced multiple years physicals has built an internal rigor sort of speak on. What does it mean hard to actually have a way to think about an accounting for carbon and then go after it go a little bit bigger than carbon you care about other values including carbon artificial intelligence? Many of us are worried that it can be he used for harm. Not just for good. You're thinking about what technology will mean. I've been talking about tech intensity city ice here that and I say I'm concerned the text too intense and powerful you walk but largest coming and use the things you're thinking about first of well let's I'm an optimist. Technology can make a huge difference. I mean think about it. It's the most malleable resource that we as humans. I've ever found a software right and to think about. This is a factor of production that changes in a precision medicine. Precision agriculture feed every body body right or connected cars connected factories. I think that this is amazing. If the technology in terms of computing is getting embedded in the real world artificial intelligence for example. I mean think about what the state of the art of whether it's reinforcement learning or this what we call multi modal large scale model training. It's essentially helping US discover new knowledge. That is not possible even before. And I'll take somebody with disabilities today with breakthroughs in computer vision for someone with visual impairment. They can interpret the world. Someone with dyslexia can read because of what I can provide. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be clear eyed about the unintended consequences of let's say technologically driven unemployment or bias in any algorithm and so we have to counter onto that so take bias first of all we as a software company a building tools. Just like how we build tools in order to ensure that people don't have security bugs in software. We should say if anybody what he believe in the model how can they D- by the model and by the way the team we've learned the best reader debiasi modest have a diverse team building it in the first place. He's suzy so smart. And you won't be able to track the diversity unless you do some things we're talking about at the same time that you're doing all these things. You are a competitor. Now you have different styles from your predecessor. Who was oh golden? Good friend of mine from college. You are a cerebral lead by example person. But you're also competitive and when and watch your National Retail Federation piece. You mentioned it's Walgreens. You mentioned Walmart starbucks. Those are three gigantic retailers. You're still you're in a titanic battle against another company to get those customers and you also offer value position that aws. Doesn't I care about that. Tell people I mean first of all. I think what's happening in retail. It's pretty exciting. I mean if you think about it everyone. Twenty nine thousand nine has sort of realized that. What retail is it's about Omni channel retail? So you need the physical stores you need the online presence but most importantly you got to connect the two things seamlessly one of the things that I talked about was what how Walmart is completely changed. The game came around. How they're doing delivery so you can order my groceries? I can start going to the store. It given the geofencing features their I o t Essentially inside the store wakes up. Make sure that things get back fresh and is really for delivery. So it's the best example Walmart taking their physical assets that digital digital capability and we're partnering with them. Same thing with Walgreens what they WANNA do. Even for chronic care management like diabetes or what marks and Spencers is done by essentially taking the store and making it a computer embedded computing. So this is one of the fascinating thing is people places and things are increasingly having digital twins this and since a digital infrastructure is more malleable. You can predict things. Automate things gain insights are like unprecedented raised. How'd you Guinea's Guinea's Azure when I saw you last? You made bold claims. I said at the time of how much money you could make with Azure. You've vastly exceeded them. Even as some of us were pleased. Who is this man? How did you see it? How did you know and how much of the future will be quite frankly? It's sort of the guy who gave me permission to do all this. Well Steve Bomber. If you think about it he wanted us to be bold and go at the cloud very aggressively. And that's what we did and one of the key things Jimmy did was. We didn't even think about azure separate from Microsoft three six five or dynamics three six five or now even xbox live or ex Ex Club we had a vision AFL Europe computing infrastructure structure and platform company. What is that next generation? We and by the way I was always grounded on the fact that it will be distributed computing infrastructure. It's the cloud doc and the edge for example. One of the fascinating. Things is is to talk about the edge. In fact I even started talking about the cloud and the edge probably four years ago and people say. What's he talking about except for now? It is conventional wisdom. That's what it takes. I think you have to have conviction on where the world is going. Make sure you bet long before anybody gives you credit credit for it and then of course execute and that's what we've done in every layer of the stack the infrastructure level platforms of service SAS layer. And that's that's what we're doing. Do you think that the marketplace will continue to pay as much as it does for your perfect execution for instance stop four hundred and ten percent return since as you start one point. Four trillion dollars will be some executives at major foreign firms funds. That say you know what I'm not going to buy that stock tears too much much about these things war will. The world changed so much that if you don't care about these mandates you're stock's GONNA go down. It's a great question. I mean you know you and I were talking before we got on the air which is You know there's this great book by Colin Mayor Called Prosperity and he talks about what is a corporation ration- and the corporations purpose is to find profitable solutions to the problems of people and planet. Okay profitable is the key would but problems is the other keyword for people and planet I so I think what happens is if you're creating a lot of profit and cree end creating more problems for for planet or people. I think it'll catch up with you so in some sense the way I look at it and say. Hey let's go after the core of what we're doing it's not about carrying about a funeral. Well things are shareholders. I always saying our shareholders are the ones who are giving US permission to be able to think about whether it is the affordable liberal housing order. That it's the carbon it's our shareholders who care as much about this as anyone else and they permission and therefore we are accountable to them to execute execute on these commitments. We make and that's good for business. It's interesting look twenty. Eight times earnings one of the highest both sort of the highest multiple for any of the plus one one hundred hundred billion companies because they want you to have that permission other issues in tech that use spoken about that are. Let's say on a hot griddle right now. Privacy Apple versus the Justice Department corporations upholding things. That aren't necessarily the constitution. There's nothing about privacy. Obviously the constitution sadly I think versus a government that is intrusive once again. We've got situation. Government wants coal you know. Coal government wants intrusion. Corporations corporations want privacy. Where do you come down these first of all? We're clear that both things matter here. The two things being privacy as a citizen as a user. I care deeply about privacy and as a citizen I also care about public safety right so both of these have been balanced and I think we have to come up with legislative mechanisms for that things like back doors and so on just bad ideas but like the cloud act which is a completely different carell. Today is actually a good first step in terms of having the legal framework for how we can in fact protect the privacy of anybody anybody who has data in the cloud and yet have the ability for any law enforcement agency to issue legal warrants. So we now have to have a technical technical and a legislative breakthrough around what is considered personal information. That's not in the cloud and so. I think that this is something that we will have to work out.
Alibaba founder Jack Ma steps down from chairman role
"All right. Let's talk a little bit more about some other Tech News Alibaba Chairman Jack Moss stepping down as chairman of the company. He founded back in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. This is big especially in the Chinese tech circles Jack Jack. Ma bought his first computer when he was thirty three years old. Alibaba was his third attempt at a startup. He's only fifty five and is expected to focus now on philanthropy and education. Hey Shen but who knows what the guy's GonNa do. Alibaba has a market cap of four hundred sixty billion dollars. US and is considered the world's most valuable retail brand outside the United States Daniels Yang Yang will become the new chairman of Alibaba. He has been CEO since two thousand fifteen so he's adding chairman to that. CEO Credit Jiang is credited with popularizing Alibaba's Alba's singles day online shopping festival which is the biggest retail shopping day in the world. Jiang is encouraging some in house experiments that compete with Alibaba's current retail offerings offerings telling Bloomberg in an interview about the transition. If we don't kill our existing businesses someone else will so I'd rather see our new businesses kill our existing businesses and that's something other businesses could to confer take inspiration from competing for yourself. It's an Omaha time on principle yeah it. I mean there are so many ways you could interpret that stepping down from DOC MA I don't know much about the Chinese ecosystem or markets or environment but he's quite young. It seems for retiring I guess there are two ways you can see it either. He's a very wealthy man and he wants to do other things which makes complete sense ore or there are other reasons that are pushing him to be tired and no matter what you say you gotta you. GotTa say that he's pretty impressive impressive performance right to go from thirty three years old for buying his first computer. Actually started yeah retiring at fifty five from this foreign sixty fifty billion dollar company. That's impressive. The sense I get is that he didn't want to continue to run this company forever. He's not an executive. He's not he's not not a financial person. He's not an engineer. He is neither Bill Gates nor Steve Bomber in this situation and so I think I you know he has apparently been saying since shortly after they founded the company at some point. I'm going to have to hand this all over and of course it was big when he handed it over to CEO The CEO role Zhang and so this doesn't surprise as me but I I think everybody is is wondering like okay but what what are you really doing next. It's not just going to be philanthropy right. Come on used to be a teacher so maybe it will be education. I don't know ooh and also the fact that it's China even if it's not warranted kind of ads and air oh but what is what is really happening beyond yeah. I know there is that that that does stick to it. I feel like with Jack Ma. It's it's probably less less of an issue than than say with the wall way or something like that but who knows who knows you never know for sure

Doc Rivers lost one of his jobs as an executive with the team okay now as a championship level head coach. He just got on hot seat. That's how this works. Some tells me it'll be alright continuing to be all right okay..

3 Things To Know Around Detroit
"The city of Detroit is one of ten American cities to join a new. National program meant to figure out how to help residents make more money and improve their economic status. The initiative is funded by the Bloomberg philanthropies the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the bomber group, which is led by former Microsoft CEO and Detroit area. Native Steve bomber the program goes for eighteen months. The plan is to test ideas, that connect low income residents and affordable housing to opportunities for more income and provide services that help them become more financially stable, the goal is to make affordable housing throughout the city and access point to city services. This is a big deal across the United States as the likelihood that the current generation, earns more than their parents is declining, especially among the middle class and poor. The program came out of a recent survey of American mayors, who said economic issues are their biggest local challenge the results of the twelve million dollar program will then be shared across the country. Other cities in the program include Lansing, right here in Michigan. New. Orleans, Louisiana Newark, New Jersey and others separately. The bomber group last fall issued sixteen million dollars in grants to eighteen Detroit area. Nonprofits to help children and families in poverty. You've heard of hell Michigan, right? It's an unincorporated town near paint ni in Livingston county. It's famous for its road signs a tavern and stores selling, souvenirs branded with the community's name now a California youtuber has purchased the whole five acre commercial property, and officially renamed it gay hill in protest of the Trump administration. Elijah Daniel says the move is in protest of the Trump administration's decision to not allow US embassies to fly the gay pride rainbow flag during June for pride month. He also says the only flags it will be allowed to be flown. Our pride flags, though. That's apparently just joke. And no ban is actually in place on other flags. Daniel is a comedian and musician, who has around five hundred and eighty thousand subscribers on YouTube. He's also the owner of an LGBTQ cannabis business in Los Angeles in two thousand seventeen he participated in hell's program to become mayor for a day, but was promptly. Impeached. He has a video, documenting the experience, titled I became mayor and banned street people from my town, all in lower case letters, Daniel tells NBC news. He is trying to engage his young audience in politics. We picked an interesting place to do it gera-, because hell Michigan in Livingston county. That's deep red country there man. Let me tell you. So I gotta ask, like, how does one by town. I didn't know you could do that because it's on Inc. There is no it's not really a town. There's no village council or or or township board of trustees or anything. It's, it's I think it's sort of unofficially called a hamlet. I mean it's really it's, it's have you ever been there? No. It's so it's like five acres. It's kind of it almost feels like a theme park at this point. There's like I think there's a mini golf course. If I remember correctly, there's a tavern. There's souvenir store. There's technically ally berry. It's right near the banks of the Huron river and everything it's really pretty there. I mean it's beautiful surroundings. It's out near the Pinkney state recreation area. So it's. It's heavily wooded everything. But it's it's not really a town. Do you think we should do the show at hell? Hamlet. We'll keep that one into consideration. The conservatory in bells reopening nearly a month ahead of schedule. The one hundred and fifteen year old Anna scripts, Whitcomb, conservatory reopens Wednesday after a number of structural repairs water head severely compromised. The twenty one foot steel trusses that are original to the building the new trusses used galvanized steel, and they'll be more resistant to the weather the project cost two and a half million dollars. It was paid for by the Michigan DNR and the Ralph c Wilson junior foundation. You know, I'm really glad to see this project happen. I have some so many memories of this place because my grandmother was a member of the o botanical society, and she would drag me around, like ten eleven twelve years old, hauling pots, and plants and all kinds of stuff around that place. It's such a such a cool, little facility, not just the, the public property. They've got all those greenhouses as well. It's a true, gem, one of the best staycationing, especially like in midwinter like you know, if you've got, like a dismal February day, no better like mood. Up than to pay visit to the belau
"steve bomber" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Analytics team to have the best training staff and training equipment. There's there's no there's no cap on any of that stuff. And I've talked to see bomber about this. And I think you know, he understands that you can control what you can control. That's that's a a bomber phrase that he likes, and that's one of the things that he knows he can controls. He can take out the checkbook, and you can write big checks to keep the coaches. They want to keep the front. Guys that they want to try to keep and you know, there's a power in that infrastructure, and I think you look across the hall at the Lakers right now. And you look at the voices that are important some of them don't work for the team. You know, it it's not as robust of a for an office is ownership is much more involved. I think in the end the decision making than it is across the hall where people are empowered. I think you know, I it's a it's a pretty stark contrast. When you look at what the clippers have done under Steve bomber in terms of just kind of building a culture of stability. You know, when you look at the Lakers where they're trying to sell sell that they're stable to free agents. I think they're barking up the wrong tree. You know, you have match Johnson quit telling people like me before you LeBron James, which is totally insane. You, you know. And then now he's still a little bit part of the process. Give Linda Rambus, Kurt Rambus. You know, merging is really really important voices. You have a guy rob Pelinka that. No, it doesn't have a ton of respect around the league. And he's been elevated now through all of this and they hired. They're they're third coaching choice because they cheap out on blue you. You know, this hasn't been sort of the stellar start to, you know, maybe the most important summer that they've had in the last decade clock is ticking on the Ron James and they've got to move. You look across all and the clippers, you know, even if they don't land Leonard they are in really good position moving forward for the next three or four seasons. And they've given themselves options the Lakers don't have as many he didn't really quickly as a file how and why do the Rambus is have so much power and influence over Jeanie Buss exactly what is that about. Well, I mean, I think you know, Linda, and Jeannie our friends for multiple decades. Jim, you know, and it's you people have advisers, and there are people that are close to them that they listen to. And I think that's been Linda for genie for a long time. And obviously with Linda comes Kurt. You know, who you was hired. I think last year I was I was surprised. I assumed he had already worked for the Lakers. I mean, it feels like he's worked their whole life. You know, it's even there the Knicks. And I think, you know, so that's that's sort of has become sort of her inner circle earlier this year the times kind of any big story where we found emails between some representatives from MSG, and from, you know, Intini bus, and Linda Rambus is on these emails, you know? And I remember at the time when the story came out talking to people saying, hey, congratulations, just stumbled into the the hierarchy, you know, like that's who's important here. That's one and two on that Email chain these are high. I mean, these are talking about maybe going back to play at the forum type emails in Linda Rambus there. She's got a voice on all of this stuff. And I think it's you know, the result of a multi decade relationship with ownership. Listen, we have a friend be vs. No problem with that. I'm not saying who she should be friends with. I got no problem with that. He is a national NBA writer for the times. He is a friend of the program, and he's the owner of a dog named VR -ther with the letter b b dot Arthur, Dan, great job. Good to have you back push it. All right. Take care. And if you need me to need some horses. Let me know do I need you for that. And thank you for being a friend. Appreciate that. Jam waikiki.

"steve bomber" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"You know, people say, well, you know, this guy's gonna sign somewhere else. I guys on the side somewhere else if they wanna go some well fine. This is about competition. And that's where I think the front office makes a difference. Again. My pilots are to the thority that Steve bomber who is one of the best owners and I worked for one here in Los Angeles. And jerry. He is one of the best owners and nicest man, I have ever met. You would never know that he's successful. He is really normal. But the thing I love about him. He is so competitive and at the end of the day who do you wanna be around? You wanna be around really competitive people who are going to let his staff run this team, they run everything by but he is mazing owner. Jerry, stay right there. Because here's what we're gonna talk. We're talking to the great Jerry West right here with Steven on ESPN radio and ESPN news. I'll ask you this question Jerry West because you know, Lawrence rank was wants to coach in this league. He knows his basketball. Now, we know what Doc Rivers knows. He's a champion. Okay. Bloomer is is the billionaire who is as you said one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet what role does Jerry West play with this. I know you're a consultant, but how much cash shea do you have how much do you utilize how much do you talk with in communicate with these folks? Because in you, we're talking about one of the great executives in the history of basketball with David. I'm. Well with dog, I don't bother him as much the one thing. I never would never do with the coaches tell him what to do. I even as a when I was involved here in locally, and Memphis and also with with the warriors. I think it's wrong to fear with a coach's ability to create what he wants to create and dock, and I will tell I will tell you. We like some of the players and no question about that. But if they made it easier for me, Stephen, I talk all the time Lawrence. There's not a day. And it goes by that we either don't talk text each other. But the people in the office Michael winger, we had a brilliant man in our front office and Lawrence again. I don't think there's an executive the league that's out watching players as much as him. He is a tireless worker, and I told him one time as Lawrence said, look, we've got about six other people out there scouting force. Who are all terrific? And my role as I view is just to be an adviser. I'm not someone here. I don't like attention. I don't like the bliss the, but I do love competition and whoever were playing the Lakers or the Celtics whoever I want us to win. And I will tell you Stephen nights. I'm going home this year where I haven't been able to sleep because a great wins. We've had I just sat there and again, a tribute to Lawrence and attributed doc that he has taken east players and mold them into a team that really believes they can win. When I tell you this much knowing Lawrence Franken. Everybody knows Lauren. Frank knows how competitive he is. Okay. Anybody? That knows Doc Rivers knows how competitive he is anybody that sees the Boehm at the games knows how competitive he is. But when we talk about Jerry West who is audibly one of the ultimate competitors. Okay. Even though you're consulted look championship when you were championships when you were with the Lakers championship. Ultimately, you want to go to State Warriors? I think one of the most brilliant moves that I've seen in the modern day was when you hired the great Hugh Brown to be the coach of the Memphis grizzlies when nobody was thinking about Hebr out, and you got him off the scrappy out of the brook as well to come work with you as the head coach in Memphis who developed Gusau now, I'm looking at you with the clippers..
Doc Rivers denies Lakers coaching rumors
"These rumors Laker rumors once you when you hear Laker rumors is like all of a sudden they start the manifest and you start throwing fuel to the fire. But I guess there was a big fire extinguisher in terms of putting out of a rumor or fired because Doc Rivers the head coach of the clippers pre-game before his team took on the Indiana Pacers yesterday, he quickly extinguished those fires take a listen to Doc Rivers pre-game. Oh, we gotta get ready. We gotta here we go. Doc, Rivers pre-game. In this right now. Magic Johnson are very close friends as you know. And that's what we are. Good friends. I have great respect for him. But the whole history of everything Steve bomber. And I have had a we have a great relationship. And you know, this summer we decided to extend my contract, and he did something and I'm going to throw this out because I just think it's worth saying because it tells you a lot about Steve he did something that I don't think any owner would do he gave me an out. Where I could opt out the summer if I wanted to. But you know, it was like we wanted to test each other make sure that we thought this was the right fit. We thought everything would work, right? But we wanted to make sure and as my dad said trust everybody, but cut the cards, you know, so it was one of those things and then early in this year, we both decided let's in this thing take this out extending it make it a longer deal. Doc Rivers that was pre game yesterday
"steve bomber" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"But it was kind of an interesting thing. As part of the emails that were revealed in that Andy in chemistry brothers fill in for John Steve today, because there's a court case involving and so the freedom of information requests, and all this kind of stuff, and you find out really cool stuff when you file emails weren't even supposed to be public. They ended up getting leaked that. That's why they're they're cool. The LA times got some screengrabs. And so you get some stuff out of this. And to me, the most interesting stuff isn't has nothing to do with the form. It's the way that they make fun of clippers owner Steve bomber who wants to build an arena in Inglewood and genius talking to Irving as off, and and Linda Rambus, then this Email chain is kind of mocking the idea of like he's gonna go there, and he's going to build an arena that's gonna be empty for you know, three hundred days a year. And it's all this other stuff. And to me that that says that she completely misses the point and the threat of the clippers because I look at it, Andy, and I see St. bomber wanting to build his own arena angle would move in there, and you know, twenty twenty four twenty twenty five whatever it is. And the I thought the same thing like who's gonna go play like downtown is still going to be where staple center the big events. You have no Kia. You have a lot of stuff. Locked in. There. You have all the relationships already the former Inglewood has become the premier concert venue. I think great you gotta if you have to figure out how to put nineteen twenty thousand people in any state in an arena and give the best music show, you go you. Before you go to Staples and way, before you go to whatever Steve Ballmer is going to build in Inglewood. And so some people look at me like, what's he doing that stupid? I look at it and go oh my God. You have a guy who so rich and so motivated and determined to make his team like the premier destination for whoever that he's willing to build it arena that will probably lose lots and lots of money and cost a billion dollars because he has twenty five of them. He's the richest owner in American team sports. It doesn't care if you lose his money. It doesn't need to make money off. That's how motivated isn't. So I just think like that stuff misses the point they call him balls with z with z sometimes with Z 'Sometimes Z. He's. He's. Disea- though is it's more condescend. It's much more. I mean, like with an acid, you're sort of sounds like a nickname for like a shorthand this Z. There's a condescension. That comes with look in China. We know that she g bus doesn't go up to Steve bomber at games or whatever didn't just say. What's up balls? That's the that's just their name for each other. Really? I I mean. I think that's an option balls. And by the way, hold on before we go any further with you guys can continue, but you said threat and clippers in the same sense. That's that's not okay. Unless it's the Lakers. Do not see the clippers as a threat. That's the only way to use threat and clippers in the same sentence. Lakers, raw, let's fine. This. I thought we ran Marcellus out of here for. You guys have you guys have a perception. Anyway, that you hate the Lakers, and you hate Kobe. You want to continue with by going hard on mean? Well, I mean, look it's all about bring brand maintenance, Greg. It is to make sure that you're always on top of that there. How were they in any way a threat? Steve Balmer, you have to separate the silliness of lake, you know, Chuck the Konin daughter, which is awful trucks. Condoms that around still. Yes. Oh, he's everywhere. The everywhere. The in game experience of the clippers is is something to be hold like I picture the mutant you'll game. I've been to a couple we're mostly when they play Lakers. But. I took the kids to one we have tickets. You know, you've tickets, no the station..
"steve bomber" Discussed on Windows Weekly
"And I I've not made an effort along these lines. But it would be interesting to kind of compare Microsoft when he took over to Microsoft when he leaves and then to do the same for St. bomber. And I bet what you'd find without really knowing is that the Microsoft under Steve bomber. Look, very similar. You know? I mean, there were a lot of rewards and things Microsoft's always kinda shuffled the Dax as far as what the businesses are. And all that. But I think St. bomber it was, you know, it it started as kind of that traditional Microsoft, we know from the past, and it, you know, they were obviously making pushes into new areas and so forth. But I bet Bennett very closely resembled. The old Microsoft, whereas I think this Microsoft's, you know, he we might not even recognize his company. It's a great success story. I think it's really. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Bravo. Let's take a break when we come back. We can talk about the the more down to earth daily gritty grind of a windows. Journalists agree. And twins. But first. Yep. I'll save that for your tip of the week, Paul. Yeah. I I actually asked Mary job. She was cool to me saving it for them. Because it is kind of a thing. But it's a thing. I think the word I've seen is cringing. Cringe taxi that's twin's coming up, but I word from what was it's hot. Now. I'm not talking about the worst sobbing next year. Sushi that hot stuff is hot. But I'm talking about what Sabi hot cloud storage. You know, people are really moving to the cloud. I mean, there's no question about it, every company Google, Amazon Microsoft hopping on that bandwagon. This is we just we're talking about it. This is the the trend of the decade. In fact, it's estimated that by twenty twenty five. What we'll be one hundred sixty three Zeta bites in the cloud. That's one hundred sixty three and twenty one zeros in the cloud. That's a crazy amount of data. And there's a good reason people are moving to the cloud in most cases, it's efficient. It's affordable. And in many cases, it's more secure than your on Prem storage. You know that because it's managed, you know, professionally. But naturally any company is moving to the cloud or is in the cloud. Now has concerns has legitimate concerns. In was Saab is addressing those with this -rupt of technology that's turning the industry on the on its ear when they created carbonate. It was these guys are super technologists. You should if you wanna ever just read about an amazing serial entrepreneur read about David friend going back to I think he was graduated from Yale and started Arp synthesizer coming. I mean, just fascinating guy. But he and Jeff realized that they could they created away which a patented to lay data on disks sequentially, not in blocks, but sequentially, which is faster more efficient. And it means it was sobbing. They did is first recarpet. And then they said we should do this for cloud storage in general, take the technology. We've we've really perfected over a decade and use this for cloud storage. And as a result was Sabi is eighty percent less expensive..
"steve bomber" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Lebron should be playing for Steve bomber in the clippers ball. Summer is one of the richest men on the planet, and he owns the team that needs LeBron's credibility bombers worth roughly forty billion dollars. Eat Jenny bus is worth twenty million. Why is that important because the blind James doesn't care about a salary cap or luxury taxes he just wants to win. Now, he has a clock. He's thirty four. He wants a team immediately that can compete with the warriors. He has no interest in a game plan and developing young players. He wants the Lakers to operate the way. Dan, Gilbert ran the Cavaliers Gilbert's were seven billion. He didn't care how far over the cap. The bronze panic roster moves pushed the Cavs Gilbert fire David Blatt at the behest of the Jan's game. Gilbert, did whatever he was told magic with light to. But Ginny buses pocketbooks may not allow it. The Lakers can land at the bottom of the ocean with or without Anthony Davis are joining the show now former MBA champion LeBron James team. Eight former Duke, blue devil. Dante ourselves Yaser. We will start with you growing concern that the Anthony Davis obsession could sink the Lakers. No, absolutely not. I we have to define what floats your boat before we know was sinks your ship. And we're talking about the Lakers here, which has always been a dual minded franchise, which is always thinking I want to court and in a box office. They've always been that way of recent times we saw Kobe's contract in two years fifty million when they knew Kobe was coming down the hill fast with no brakes, they still got the most money in the NBA because he was box office. Why does Anthony Davis make sense because he's twenty five years young? He's box office, and he's one of the top three players in our league. So as LeBron plateaus or starts to come down to hill with breaks. You're going to have another star in the end the facilities in the building. That's going to help. Keep your dual minded focus, which is box office Showtime and also balling on court. Lakers weren't expected to win a championship this year. I don't know if people signed up saying Lakers win the championship in LeBron for years with the Lakers dig about it. There were no size sunken ship. He just described. Well, there's no title the ship has some I wouldn't go there because there's no size of the Klein and Golden State. None matter of fact, they've added a boogie cousins to a dynastic team. So if they don't step aside all the of the twenty nine teams have to get in line. And I think the Lakers gonna be at the top of that line. I think it'd be championship contenders. Before anyone who signed on an ink that this team has to win the championship? They certainly didn't say at this year or they didn't say next year. What Magic Johnson those on the ships. I've talked about him sips didn't bring tampering tip over. That's what the Lakers vote. I'm about the Lakers. You gotta understand this Kobe contract and the way that they're running to now's a completely different thing. One of the Magic Johnson promise. Or he was stepped down. He didn't say a championship. He said a big time free agent. He got LeBron. And now he's going at the anti Davis. He swung amiss on. Did. He not swing and miss Paul George. No questions. Okay. Did he not swing a miss Morton like winner? Okay. So manage else's in the line to what his goals are. And the Lakers are in alignment to their goals are. Obsession. Not an obsession.

WSJ Tech D.Live: How Should Tech Firms Be Regulated?
"The. With a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal technology, firms are facing increased scrutiny over the role. They play in elections, the dissemination of false or biased news and consumer data breaches, but to what extent should tech firms, especially social media companies be regulated at the Wall Street Journal's de live tech conference and Laguna Beach, California industry officials and politicians weighed in with various suggestions democratic u s Representative row Cana of California said any regulation. That's an acted has to be smart as Tim coke putted. We need well-crafted regulation of and it's not regulation for regulation saying let me give you a couple examples of things that I think actually could get bipartisan support, and this of privacy groups, and technology leaders, for example, I think people should have a right to be notified when there's a data breach. It's ridiculous. If you have months and months, go by and people aren't notified you have access. Now to your health records have access to your financial records, probably should have access to know what's happening to your data. You should have some portability which would increase competition if you could take data from one platform to another, but what about possible legislation from states or congress with regard to overseeing the tech industry, AT and T CEO. Randal Stevenson, said don't leave it up to the states. I don't think Washington right now could agree on the freezing temperature a water. But if there were ever an issue that you would think could get bipartisan coalescence, this is one. I mean, we got we had a mess coming at us literally states independently going out and designing their own privacy regulation, you'd people running companies out there trying to think about how you do business newspapers. How do you do business in a world where you have fifty different regulations legislation and rules around privacy? There are a number of states that are now passing their own legislation around. Privacy, and by the way, net neutrality, and what would be a total disaster for the technology and innovation that, you see happening in Silicon Valley and elsewhere is to pick our head up and have fifty different sets rules for companies trying to operate in the United States. So this is where legislation I think is critical pass a body of legislation around customer data protection that shouldn't be that difficult to pull together. Honestly, don't believe Darrell Issa US Republican Representative from California sounded an optimistic note about possible. Regulation from the incoming congress little regulation will occur. We'll be more thoughtful simply because you have highly divided government after this last election, and it tends to mean that the new guys in town in the house are going to be demanding all kinds of things and they're going to walk into. Okay. You'd better demand. Something we were already interested in or you're not gonna get it on the other hand. Steve bomber former Microsoft CEO. And now the owner of the NBA's LA clippers said regulation was preferable to help. The tech industry and not legislation. I happen to think it's a whole lot better to engage with regulators than it is to leave things to legislative action. A lot of discussion in the ecosystem always be we need laws. We need legislation that in every way is probably the worst thing for everybody. Because the regulators can have a real thoughtful discussion about what the technology permits doesn't permit. The legislators never going to do that regulation in the hands of the FTC. Yeah, I get that. Or the DOJ? I get that the differences. Those are people who can put staff on to really understand the details. And those are some thoughts about regulation from the WSJ tech de live conference when we come back. Steve bomber talks about what businesses can learn from sports teams. This is tech news briefing. From the Wall Street Journal, this podcast is brought to you by Harvard Business School executive education is your family office position for growth and success gain best practices in. Family wealth management at the new program building legacy, family, office wealth management. Learn more at H B, S dot ME slash legacy. At the Wall Street Journal de live tech conference. Steve bomber owner of the NBA's, Los Angeles, Clippers and former Microsoft CEO was asked what the similarities and differences were between a company like Microsoft and entertainment franchise like the clippers bomber said. It's all about accountability and winning. Yes, we are in entertainment company, and that's very important thing for me to remember, I tend to think of as a basketball team and yet from a business perspective, we are in entertainment entertainment product. Now, what is the best way to sell tickets? We've done all the statistical analysis. It turns out winning championships is the best way to make your business better. God, it's just like real business. It's all about the product stupid. And frankly, if you win championships got he'll know this. They're still selling a lot of tickets in Chicago years after this guy won a bunch of championships there. So winning the only other thing. Actually that helps you signing superstar having the first pick in the draft. But the best thing is to championships. And so that is what we focus in on. Now, if you think about it, what does that mean, it points to accountability business, you know, people we run around. I we're so we got the quarter getting after the next one. You know, we're marketshare were held accountable. You want accountability? Sports after every game win loose. Sorry. Can't fix it. Next quarter, gone. It's gone. Teamwork. How's your team working your business? How's your team more? Teamwork. Twenty every twenty four seconds. Everybody knows our team work is every twenty four seconds. You can see it. You have to be accountable for it. You think you have customers and shareholders that assess you, yeah, they do, but they're casual casual compared to the millions of fans who are sitting there studying every move who have access to all the perform. Silence data that you do. There's not one piece of information are fans can't see that. We can see that's not true in businesses. So I find a level of count ability frightfully more powerful than I did when I was a CEO that's LA clippers owner Steve bomber on what businesses can learn from sports teams. And that's a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal.

"I'm going to bring it back around and say, Microsoft is cool. Again, Microsoft is arguably cooler and doing more innovative stuff than apple and watch. I, yeah, I never thought I'd ever say that. But I mean, Microsoft is the company of Dr evil style freaking underwater data centers that operate on salt water. I mean, this is intensely creative and really int- stuff, and it's the home of Git hub. Now it was a few months ago that Microsoft made the winning bid. They beat out Google to get. You know, the home of most software developers get hub is a place where software developers gather the share projects. They share workflows. If you have a problem that you. You need to solve chances are. If you're a developer, you'll go check it hub z. of somebody's posted something up there and Microsoft was able to convince the founders that they should go with them. Instead of with Google. I thought that was an extraordinary thing. And then I looked into it a little bit more. Microsoft happens to be the biggest contributor by far to get hub, they're doing a lot more in development stays yet. You know, some of our listeners might remember a sweaty, Steve bomber dancing around on stage, saying developers, developers, developers, developers, a really is all about developers again at Microsoft, and they're creating a lot of value. The stock is fairly priced citing and Adela has changed that company for the better and I love the stock. So just to be clear when you said Microsoft is cool again, did you mean to say Microsoft is cool again for software developers. Yes, I guess that that's fair. That is fair to say. I'm apple guys, so I'm not really made up much of a windows guy even though I buy us windows regularly for for the job. But I will say that sufficient talking Lee enough Microsoft is making cool stuff..

"steve bomber" Discussed on Windows Weekly
"Now the difference between Microsoft of today and the Microsoft ended Steve bomber is that this messaging, the stuff that you Mary Jo and I kind of cringe a little bit over the assessable stuff and the, you know, we're the people, you know, were about emotions in logic, immovable, this stuff that I think is nonsense guess what. It's working. This message is resonating and it doesn't hurt that. They just had one hundred, ten billion dollars more. Where does that money come from? It seems to be asking. Idiots. I'm not a financial guy. No one seems to care about this. I'm like, I feel like I'm out there with a little white flag clo- anybody. I have a question. And no one, no one's answering. No one cares. So great for them. The one number we didn't get. I thought we, I thought we heard it during the call about the earnings, but I was wrong. I thought they were gonna finally, say, windows ten has hit the seven hundred million active device. Number, of course, hasn't hit it. Theory about this, this, this, this figure was this another non figure, but a friend as it was the nearly seven hundred million as well. Yeah. Was I started by Terry myerson back and I believe late March. If not, it was early April and. I've come to the conclusion that Teri does not understand how numbers work. This is the guy who said the billion thing, and then they had to some never months later. Say I just kidding. That's not going to happen. It is impossible that a product that is growing at a monthly rate that windows ten is growing at was at nearly seven hundred million. Let's call it April first and is not at over well over seven hundred million. August I, it is impossible. I can't explain this. I every time Microsoft releases a new number for windows ten. I compare it to the old number obviously, but also look at the average monthly uptick of that thing. And I can see whether this the growth is getting faster slowing down, and we seem a little bit of both in the three years does ten has been out, but the trend over the past two milestones because they don't match up two quarters. I was like, like a Wookey got in front of the camera. That thing was so big. I was scared. There was something in front of me here in Berlin anyway. Was accelerating. And so I, I believe at the last time when I think of a six hundred million or six to whatever the number was, but the average monthly uptick in new active devices running windows ten was almost seventeen million a month, so I don't know what nearly means necessarily. It's obviously not a fixed thing, but if they were nearly on April one and they the seventeen million in April seventeen million in may seventeen million in June July was thirty five. That's almost seventy million. It's impossible that they're not over seven hundred million where where does this go? You know what? I am guessing happen. There is maybe they weren't tracking the number correctly. And so there gave an inflated figure before and now they're trying to catch up and fix it. But I don't know that for a fact because nobody will tell you what's going on when you ask. My alternate reality version of this is Terry was like, I want to show some momentum with windows how we doing over there and they're like six hundred ten million. And he goes, I'm going to say nearly seven hundred million in LA Terry. That doesn't make any sense. Like hundred ten is nearly seven hundred. You know, compared to five hundred. It's also nearly six hundred. I'm just making this up. I I don't. I have. No, I I can't. I literally can't explain it. Thank you map and. No, no. Anyway, we may never understand how Microsoft makes big big. It's a big number. It's a big difference. Number people running. This is a big number four one version of windows to. I mean, that's the important thing. Windows seven still has a huge installed base. Windows eight does not, but they're still windows eight, whatever uses out there there the the, the potential for this thing kit. A billion is he obviously it's going to happen. So it's it is one of those matter of time things, but it is curious to me that I don't know. I don't know..
