"Bob Myers is departing as president and general manager of the Golden State Warriors after building a championship team that captured four titles in an 8 year span and reached 5 straight NBA Finals from 2015 to 2019. One of the most successful GMs over the past decade in any sport, Myers contract was set to expire in late June. The 48 year old Myers became an agent before emerging as a top NBA executive with a personable nature who regularly attended practices to chat with players, coach Steve Kerr, and his assistants.

"AP sports I'm time Miriam. It was a marathon day of sports on Monday, starting with a morning Major League Baseball game, and ending with two late night overtime games in the Stanley Cup playoffs. In between the NBA played two game twos in its opening round series in Philadelphia the 76ers maximized home court advantage defeating the next 96 84 as tyrese maxi led a defense that held the nest for just 35 second half points while scoring 33 himself. We were able to get started time we started when we needed them. Consecutive stops in a row, which led to fast breaks, led to easy buckets. Out west, the kings were beaming again, lighting up the warriors one 14 one O 6 as the air and Fox scored 24 to put Steve Kerr's defending champions in danger of becoming ex champions. We know we have to play better. But we will play better. We're these guys are champions. You saw what they did. It was a good playoff night for kings as the NHL's Los Angeles kings came from behind to stun the oilers four to three in game one on Alex I have follows overtime gold. It took two overtimes for the wild to beat the stars in Ryan Hartman's goal. The bruins said in NHL regular season record for victories and Boston started the postseason with a three one victory over the Panthers. Brad marchand scored what turned out to be the game winner. It's always good to start the first game with a win, but we have an accomplished anything yet. The hurricanes took advantage of home ice to stop the islands due to one in their game one. 25 stays for auntie ranta. Fun to play these games again. Just super excited and getting that home crowd going the baseball at the annual patriots day, morning game in Boston, former Red Sox hunter Renfro got the angels off early with a first inning three run Homer, then drove in another run in the second inning in a 5 four angels victory. I enjoy hitting here, I've been wearing it. I always love the crowd here. Obviously, being my time, even from before I'm being here. Later in the day, winners included the mets, braves, Astros, brewers, Diamondbacks, cubs, reds, pirates, and Marlins. Tom AP sports
Steve Kirsch on the FAA Lowering Health Standards for U.S. Pilots
"Joining us now is Steve kirsch, Steve. Welcome back to the program. So Steve, there's a couple of things I want to go through with you. But let's start with kind of the bombshell report. I'm going to play a piece of tape from Tucker Carlson's program and God bless Tucker Carlson for being one of the few people with a major platform to speak about this issue. And then I'll let you riff from there. Let's play cut 73 please. First thing pretty amazing that happened without much notice at all without any explanation publicly the FAA just made a major change in the health requirements for pilots with heart damage. The FAA is significantly broadened the acceptable EKG range for commercial pilots. Steve Kerr's reported this on his substack, now the change now allows people with injured hearts, cardiac injury, to fly. Steve kersh, walk us through it. Yeah, the basically they changed the PR interval. And so this is something that's existed for EKG since the beginning of the EKG since the invention of the EKG, the what's called the PR interval which has to do with a time for blood to go through your heart. It used to be in a range of .12 milliseconds to .2, .2 seconds. So 200 milliseconds. And that's always been the top level of the range. They changed it now, kind of, and nobody noticed it until just recently, and it's the U.S. freedom flyers. That actually noticed the change in this. Nobody else noticed. And so they brought it to my attention. I was talking to Josh yoder in a colony. He said, hey, you should really talk about this because it's not getting any play in the mainstream media for some reason. They basically, they moved the goalposts.

"Yeah, yeah, no. So I'm never so what I tell all the parents, whether you pick our academy or you pick another academy or you pick a coach, you got to learn their philosophy and their I go, if you're going around learning ten different philosophies, right? Like all you're doing is, in my opinion, confusing the kid. Like, there's no way you're going to come to our academy, and then I know go down to the academy down the street and it's going to see eye to eye. That would be like, does Bill Belichick run the same system as Steve Kerr or Greg Popovich or like these are all cultures on its own? And they're all successful for certain reasons..

"They didn't know what their rotation was until late in the second round of the playoffs, and then a key part of that rotation goes down. So to your point, it all just goes back to Steph because he makes the entire organization's life so much easier. Agreed. Yeah. As Steve Kerr said after the game, none of this happens without Steph Curry. I wrote a story in November about the resurgence of their offense when they got off to that hot start. They were in Brooklyn and they had, I think, the best offense in the NBA. After last season, they finished, I don't even know what the same. They think they finished 21st in offensive rating. I could be making that number up, but almost positive. And they looked like they looked like the warriors again. And it was like, I asked everybody in after the game that came to the podium or the interview room or whatever. And Kerr Wiggins, draymond, and Steph, I asked him, what's the key to this renaissance here? And Wigan's just laughed and was like, Steph Curry. Is that a serious question? Everything is about sniff curry. He's just amazing. And we didn't even talk about the production..

"Well, draymond, I gotta hand it to him. I thought he was really good tonight. He made a couple pivotal outside shots at the right times. I just thought that was the best game I've seen him in person. Shot with confidence. Yeah, he did. He was really good. He was probably their third best player today. I still have Wiggins as the second best player in that game. Steve Kerr 9 rings. I thought, look, I'm biased, I'm Friends with Steve Kerr, known him for, I don't know, 15, 16 years. He's one of my favorite people talk basketball. I was so impressed by his coaching this whole postseason room, but especially the Celtic series. He picked the wings off the butterfly. Him and his staff, they just, I saw game 5 and I was telling you guys, we're walking down how pessimistic was I before this game. Very very. It's not expressed any optimism, not at any point today in the run up to today, but since game 5, you've just been like, I just don't think we're going to do it. I would never bet against the Celtics, especially in the finals, but I was just like, I was going to be so surprised. To me, it had to be some sort of crazy monkey wrench, like Peyton Pritchard hitting 7 threes type of thing because I just really felt we talked about this last night. I just really felt like the warriors had solved them. And the last time I remember when I did that 2014 finals and we were doing countdown that year and I was like, I think that in the pre game, I was like, I think the series is over. I think santonio has figured out this team. The ball movement, my image just can't handle it. And today was like that too. They.
"steve kerr" Discussed on Bob Ryan & Jeff Goodman NBA Podcast
"Wish we could just get into inside the head of vox populi to say, we're having a discussion in the middle of June about the Celtics on the verge of a championship. Right. That would have been laughable, not in this incomprehensible, laughable three months ago. So please appreciate what's been going on. Yeah, there could be the Red Sox. Please. Yeah. By the way, you know, seems better. Yeah, they don't play with it. Okay, final question here, guys. We've made a lot certainly of Steve Kerr as a coach over the years. And then now idoko with this turnaround. Bob I'll start with you. How much impact on their teams? And I want you to break it down. X's and O's and then the psychology of it. Have these coaches made on their respective clubs? Well, so I would just clearly, from what we gathered since we're not behind closed doors, and these are 40 years ago, I would have been a practice every day. Well, people don't have that privilege anymore. So we don't know exactly what goes on. People walk in. You got to practice every day, bob. Were you allowed in practice every day to watch so much of it? I mean, Jeff, he stated Paul westfall's house during. They let guys in practice now for like, you know, 15 minutes. Now, how long were you allowed to be in practice? Oh, practice. And you walked into the gym an hour before practice sat down in the locker room, chatted up the guys, chatted up the coach, walked out, watch practice, and then went in with your notebook and then did your work, you know, after, but beforehand, you schmooze. You know? What if something happened in practice, bob? What if somebody got hurt? What if there was an argument? What were the unwritten rules at that point? It's a good question. I don't honestly remember how we codified it, except that I don't remember too much of that ever happening. You know, it really don't. I can't remember specific example with some guy went down there and oh my God, there's a story. That was understandable, but you know, you earned a trust. I mean, you did one of the things that you did was by going in with the schmoozing and, you know, you were in your trusted you proved over time. You knew what was reportable and what wasn't. You knew, or you knew how to file something away and dig it out a month later without attributing it to anybody, but you know, but it takes time. It took a year or two to earn the trust and you have to, I say this to kids when I talk to anybody now, yours as a beat person. I don't care what sport you're talking about. I don't care what level you're talking about college. You're talking about pros. You're a salesperson. And you're selling the product you're selling is you. And you're selling yourself to the players to coaches and administration. And in college, the AD, you know, and so as well as and you have to tell you conduct yourself and how you go about your job, it takes a while to earn that trust. But we were allowed in practice, yes. Unbelievable. I've been allowed in college practice. You know, I remember being at an Illinois practice, Bruce Weber was a coach, and I forget who the player was, went down with an injury, and obviously I didn't report it because I was allowed in as a national guy when.

"So I feel. Like that guy. I feel the exact like I used to not like Paul O'Neill. And I'm Paul O'Neill's listening. I'm sure he's a nice guy. But he was just like an easy guy sort of not to like and I didn't like not in any real way. But he's just kind of I would actively root against him. You sports hated him. Yeah, I didn't really just like him, but at the moment he's always arguing. I really like Steph and I really like draymond and I really like I'm like rooting hardcore for clay. I'm rooting for Andrew Wiggins. I like Steve Kerr's nice guy rooting for Steve Kerr. I'm like, I'm Jordan Poole. That's a good story. I've got the answer. For everybody. You go anti Lake up. Anti San Francisco. Yeah, yeah, you go there. You just go anti lako. You go against it's like the Darth Vader. You know what I mean? It's like the evil overlord who bragging about how he wants to go to 50% of the finals moving forward and he's light years ahead. Like your anti Lake of is the fix. That's the only thing. Can we go even further? Maybe it's anti big tech. Now we're talking about it. Blue collar Boston against the Silicon Valley, big tech. All this Facebook watching us and all the crazy shit that's happened and culture and TikTok. How our kids are trapped to their phones and the warrior symbolizes all this. I love this. I can talk myself into this fast. It's the warrior's fault that my son's on Roblox.

"Worst since Steve Kerr took over in 2014. So I don't understand it. I don't, I don't really have an adequate basketball explanation other than that. I think because of the wings, I think they just give the smart Tatum Brown thing has just given the words problems over the years. Kerr has a lot of respect for these guys to coach them. You know, in the Team USA stuff, I think he really, really likes and respects the team. And the Horford, the Horford draymond thing, is like an interesting little matchup. You go across the board, they really match up well with this team. I was surprised. The words are favorite on FanDuel. I was really surprised. I thought, I know they have home court, but man, you think like the warriors beat up Denver team. Memphis, no jaw, we talked about this Thursday night. And then the Dallas team that just stopped making threes. The Boston team seems like the best team they've played by a considerable margin, I would say. I feel like Boston matches up really well with them. And there's something about the way they defend Golden State. It's always been a little different. I did an eye roll when they talked about missing on a Durant to Golden State during the recruitment. I thought it was like such a weird thing because the Celtics shouldn't be happy about coming at second place in a free agent race. But part of it was that Boston felt like they had sort of unlocked its way to defend Golden State. And I had mentioned that somebody and they kind of explained to me that Boston does approach Golden State a little bit different defensively. And it's talked about. And because they have these defenders, they have so many switchable guys, especially with this group, that.
Why Won't Democrats Focus on Their Surveillance Scandals?
"Their into surveillance unlawful surveillance That's why they wanted their little ministry of truth According to the office of the national Intel more than half of those queries almost 2 million were part of the larger investigation of alleged Russia attempts to target a week in U.S. critical infrastructure The office reported and admitted that on at least four occasions the FBI fell to get fisa approval before accessing the contents of information collected It's not the first time the FBI has been caught red handed overstepping its legal authority It seems to me there's systemically focused on undermining law abiding citizens And there are lighter array Jordan Turner laid out a laundry list of questions about the report demanding further transparent Isn't it interesting that the Democrats don't do this They control the Congress Is it an interesting that they're not focused on this at all And the vast majority of them weren't upset with this ministry of truth And the vast majority of them support a database against the cops Isn't that interesting ladies and gentlemen and they go around saying there aren't universal background checks to get a gun when in fact there are Like the idiot coach Steve Kerr going on and on

That's why it looked like this 'cause it's not braided down under. So you guys, we'll be right back with our daily pop. That's what you can help me with. In the last ten days, we've had elderly black people killed in a supermarket in Buffalo. We've had Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California, and now we have children murdered at school. When are we going to do something? We're going to play the game tonight, but I want every person here every person listening to this to think about your own child or grandchild or mother or father or sister brother. How would you feel if this happened to you today? We can't get numb to this. We can't sit here and just read about it and go, well, tell the moment of silence. Yeah, go dubs. Do you realize that 90% of Americans regardless of political party want background check, universal background check? 90% of us. It's pathetic. I've had enough. That was warriors head coach Steve Kerr, summing up many people's thoughts on the horrific events that took place yesterday. We hope today's show brought a light moment into what has been a difficult 24 hours, especially for those who lost loved ones in Texas. And our hearts are with every one of the victims families. You know, a country divided can not prosper. So just remember that the next time you vote, we need leaders that are going to unite us together. We can do this America is so much better than this. Coach Kerr is all of us right now. He said everything I feel, my heart is broken and I'm sending love and strength to the family and loved ones of all the victims. We are better than this and we can't forget about this. We can't let it just keep happening. Yeah. And it's time for us to move from thoughts and prayers to policy and change. Hey, man, I thought so with the victims of yesterday's shooting and everyone affected by yet another act of senseless violence..
"steve kerr" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"In the middle of the game. This was like, he gets that big stop on Luca where he just like, he's just a really solid. Still impacting the game. He's still impacting the game. For sure, he's really good. And people have criticized his shot selection, everything. And the thing about the warriors though, like, there's something about this team where I'm just like, and maybe it's because I'm thinking about past iterations and how dominant they were. But I'm like, this team's really gonna go to the finals. Here's the thing. They're beatable, which we're not quite used to seeing in this fashion. Like the only times they were beatable or when half the team was hurt or kind of the crazy circumstances of 2016, but we're not used to seeing them this beatable. And beyond that, it probably speaks to Steph, but I mean, Wiggins was an all star, but the fan vote getting them into the game. I don't think people really took him seriously in all star. It's kind of like, they don't have a second guy. And draymond Spencer Dinwiddie, the boneheaded quote of the playoffs, I think said he's not a max guy. He's one of the greatest role players of all time. I don't think he meant for it to come off that way, but. Wait, when did he say that? Last night after the game oh, okay. Yeah. He's like, he's not a traditional max guy where you give him the ball and say, go get 30. But that is true. It is true, but yeah, they just don't have kind of that classic second star that I think people are used to teams having. Steph has been incredible. Doing all the stuff things just watching him move without the ball. He also looks like more muscular than I think he's ever looked in his career. A weird observation to make, I know, but I was caught off guard in the press conference room. I was like, Steph's yoke to like what's going on here. And what I think it's paying off, I think is finishing is really good. Steve Kerr complimented his conditioning. These 34 and his conditioning is fantastic. So when you have a guy like that, that can cover up for some of the maybe less heralded parts of their roster. I mean, they're throwing out Moses moody. It's a weird team. So that's one of the thing with me. It's less about the top, the top of the roster, because I think Steph's one of the, you know, he's going to go down as one of the 15 greatest players of all time. He's still 48% from the three point line in this series, and they're almost all of them are just absurd. And dribble going to his left over Mexico. It's just like, yeah, there's just no defense for him again. So it's less about that and more about, yeah. I'm watching the game with my dad and he's like, who is that? And he's talking about Moses moody. And I'm like, I'm watching it with some of the other things. Who's number four? And it's like, that's nothing against most of moody. He's super young. Good for him. Good for him being ready for the moment. And he's a really competent player for his age. It's kind of odd to see them get significant minutes from him in a an important playoff game. And I look at this roster and I'm like, when auto Porter went down, I was like, oh my goodness, they need auto Porter. He's really important for them. I thought coming into this series, they would need Andre Iguodala. He's 37, 38 years old. So it's like, there's just things about this roster..
"steve kerr" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Don't do the finger wag go to your room, scolding kind of parenting toward him. But they're also very honest with him. Both ways. And I think when you look at the flagrant two that he got, I think it was telling that when the grizzlies fans regaling, you know, kick them out, kick them out with a kind of frothy enthusiasm that you would see at a presidential rally, right? Steve Kerr and Steph Curry were kind of laughing about it. Like, oh, this is absurd. But as soon as the officials said, you know what? He's getting thrown out. They were irate. But I know in the past, when he's gotten technicals, they've had talks with draymond about trying to find a way to dial back. They never want to lose draymond's intensity because, you know, when you add up all the things, that emotion and intensity helps the team more often than it hurts the team. And they're also mindful that, look, like, draymond's in intelligent player. It's not like he doesn't know how to play without emotion without putting himself at risk and all that. He's had his hits. He's had his misses, but he has shown an ability to course correct and make adjustments. So I'm outlining all this to say that the warriors have never been about coddling draymond. They've been all about trying to be honest. And understanding where he comes from, but also knowing what they need from him as a team. And with that, they have very practical and pragmatic conversations with them. So now when you're fast forward into this series and you're hearing the reactions, I think that this should illustrate that they're not coming from a place where they say draymond can never do no wrong and we're always getting screwed. They're always pretty even handed about their commentary about things. So I think the fact that they're having this reaction shows how warranted it is because this series so far, I don't think has been called correctly in both games when you're looking at the example of draymond green's flagrant Sue, as well as Dylan Brooks as flagrant too. And the clear difference of the severity of those plays..
Nike CEO John Donahoe's Lessons on Servant Leadership
"What star. John rains that i am most associate with you. Which is servant leadership. And i'd love if you could describe your philosophy on servant leadership especially try to conceptualize it for much smaller organizations. What does it mean to serve leader as a ceo of a bunch of ceo's around the table how should they think about how that philosophy conform away they run their business so when i talk about servant leadership. It's frankly the the way. I learned to lead because i actually learned the lead in partnership a ban where you aren't really empowered to do anything to you have to earn the respect and the followership of others. You guys don't have that as founders. But i do think you'll find that. Many of the best leaders exhibited the principles servant leadership. And i just say how do i serve serve. The purpose of the organization serve the customers served. The employees serve the communities in which we operate in a jim collins called at level five leadership other people call from things. But it's when someone it's not about the leader it's about what it is. We are trying to accomplish right and some of the antithesis of what's hot silicon valley at different times the narrative. Always around the all-powerful founder. They're all powerful leader. And i think there's actually very few examples where that actually great sustainable companies come out of that my leadership role model for large parts of my career with phil jackson of the chicago bulls. Now it'd be steve kerr for your younger and would always struck me. He was able to do is get people who actually were better than he was klay. Together he got michael jordan. Scottie pippen dennis. Rodman caster characters to win six championships. It got shack kobe to play together. You look at you. Look at steve kerr the warriors right. Now he's getting. Somehow he's getting steph curry klay thompson and kevin durant andrew mongering all vying to something greater and they win i view with how do you build high performance teams of top talent to win and servant leadership is part of it.
"steve kerr" Discussed on BBALL BREAKDOWN Podcast
"Becoming oversimplified? And if so, do you think between a heliocentric offensive scheme and maybe like an egalitarian egalitarian office of scheme? Which do you think has a higher ceiling overall? Wow. Those are great questions. So the thing about the low ratings to me, it makes me concern is maybe that the league is becoming the same. Everyone's playing the same kind of offense, they're all running pistol action and offs into ball screens and whatnot. And so less interesting whereas in the past, you'd have very distinct kinds of attacks that were pleasing to the eye for fans. Now, if we're talking about overall effectiveness for winning, I mean, I think it depends on the team you have. The rockets obviously tried to do the heliocentric style where they looked at the offense and what the point of what's the point of basketball is to have more points the other team, right? So offensively, well, how can we distill this this time on that end of the floor to make sure that our best player is dictating most of the plays to ensure the best shots overall now we saw what happened with that, right? It kind of wore James Harden down. Yeah. And he fits in the playoffs. And what we've seen from like, you know, the teams like the warriors who are much more of an egalitarian, move the ball spacing the player movement and ball movement at the same time. To me is pleasing to the eye. And I think to a lot of people because it's just so much more dynamic and stimulating some in theory. It doesn't feel as predictable. And then certainly from a defensive standpoint, I probably always going to air on the side of let's not ISO so much. You know, let's get some movement. And if you want to do some pick and roll, whatever that might ultimately force a switch into an ISO, okay, but let's get ball movement before that because what Steve Kerr has talked about in the past. I'm like, on my show. And even Phil Jackson in the past has talked about is when players get to touch the ball. And that's how much shooting it but touch the ball. In their hands. Yes. They feel a part of the offense. I feel part of the game and they might actually play harder on defense. And we've seen players every once in a while come out and say, all I freaking do is just saying the corner and every 5th possession I touched the ball and I maybe I shoot it. I'm gonna do a video on this. And I keep threatening to do this..
Kevin Durant, Draymond Green Blame Steve Kerr & Warriors GM for Split
"We're still talking about the fall out of the draymond green kevin durant situation the show. They did in which they both said. Hey it's bob myers and steve kerr's fault why. The dynasty broke up because of the way they handled our disagreement that we had in two thousand eighteen as time has gone on like you see this look draymond. Green is a smart guy. He knows the impact of his words. Is this dream on pulling james harden going you know what whatever conversation we've had the at the olympics when everybody's hanging out. Hey i want out golden state now. Because i want to get someplace else. 'cause you're blowtorch and your gm at your coach something. That was three years ago. I i've not heard tentatively that that was the purpose behind what he said and there remains the possibility that it was simply. I wanna clear my name. And i wanna do something. That's explosive on my first podcast as i prepare myself for my post my post playing career. i do. I will tell you that it did not sit well at all with the warriors and it shouldn't that from either. Yeah from either one of them and it it. It does undermine their authority and moving forward trying to trying to put this team together.
N.H.L. Fires Referee for Comment on Penalty Call
"Well the nhl has announced that. Tim peel has been fired immediately. He will never work. Nhl games now in the future. Colin campbell announced it this morning. By saying in part there is no justification for his comments no matter the contexts or its intention in the nhl will take any and all steps necessary to protect the integrity of our game. This is incredibly overzealous on part of the nhl. What do you think yes a little much. I mean i get why they're doing it because you just don't want to see. They have an agenda. Coming in like things are predetermined. I mean you. And i both know what he's saying. Is i want to keep the game from getting out of control. So we're setting the tone early. I mean that's that's what ref do but you're not supposed to acknowledge it and i think it's just they don't need to fire him though like you know. And maybe they could. They could quietly bring him back but it seemed like they were making him a scapegoat for this. I got a. I got an email from a friend of mine. Who's a referee. And i gave you the name. Because he's still rafts yup but here's what he said. I've officiated thousands of basketball games in my life. Tim peel said what every single official has thought. During a many times we just either keep it to ourselves or speak about it to our partner at halftime when it's only us in a room in a basketball game. Let's say the foul count is one side. Maybe it's six. Oh the calls were all one hundred percent correct and the foul count should be six. Oh if not more we can look up at the scoreboard and see the count and we also gear up from the coach. Who said he's had six called against his and none of four forum and if there's a break in the game wrestled get together. And if they're veteran officials yeah they will say they need to call one against the team with zero fouls the next time. That team comes anywhere close to committing a foul. That's the one that's going to get called if the files were six. Oh against them. There's no way we'd call that foul but here comes a whistle. Both coaches know. It's coming to and this guy. My friend is exactly right. Yeah i for the initial shock time gambling going on here further. Okay the rest being mic'ed up. There's a lot of players that we i know about the nba. They have players are miked. Up and coaches are miked up. There's somebody who they don't all go on the broadcast. I mean there is a feed where the unedited sound this. Somebody leaks it but mostly the only stuff that the the broadcast air has been sort of pre-approved somebody from the league. That's sitting there listening to it saying okay. We use that use this. This'll be good juicy and a years. Do you remember when the when the warriors were playing the rockets and steve kerr was there was a there was audio of steve. Kerr saying something about. Kevin durant like kevin needs v or aggressive or. I can't remember what he said but it was something like he needs to. He can't just take over there. You know whatever it was and it got through like we they aired it on the broadcast and then it became a thing game. Steve kerr got asked about it and stuff and he was rightly pretty upset. Because that's the exact kind of thing that you know the this whole thing of biking coaches and players up. It's based on trust. It's based on this idea that you know you're going to kind of protect me from something like that happening. Right of of in the moment and the emotions of the game coach yells at star player star player yells at so teammate. Whatever which is literally what happens in every single game if that gets taken out if that gets blown up that quote gets goes everywhere like then it becomes a problem for these coaches and players. And they're not gonna let themselves get mike up
Kerr: Green 'crossed the line' with late ejection
"102 100 Terry Rozier, nailing the game winner. He tied the game late by making two free throws. After Draymond Green got ejected for losing his temper over a jump ball call and after the game, Warriors said. Coach Steve Kerr addressed the matter, saying, quote Green Cross the line. That's the main thing. We love his passion and his energy. We would not be the team. We are without him. But that doesn't give him license to cross that line. And he knows that Close quote in college

"Copeland on the leadoff spot here it on your Google home Smart speaker by saying play K NPR Tom Brady throwing for 500 yards and one Super Bowl definitely helped that. That's the one thing that always cracks me up. When we look out, I saw a tweet that came out the other day like that there was Denigrating each one of Tom Brady's Super Bowl appearances or wins, But you know there was 28 other guys that work in that bowl. What you lost? That sounds good morning. 28 30, other guys who were in that bowl, you know, depending on the year, I guess one of the Texans come into the league, Dave. 2000. Some like that. 99 2000, the expansion team something like that. After Tom Brady was in the league, Dave says, I think was a little before, wasn't it? Maybe maybe it was like in fifth grade when David Carr was, you know. Taking pain for opposing defensive lineman anyway. I anyway, so this tweet where it was trying to knock down a little bit every one of Tom Brady's Super Bowls and the New York Giants ones or the ones that come to mind. But also they had to drive the field in both of those Bulls Toby Tom Brady, like he left the game with the lead, and then that eagles when he lost, he threw for 500 yards. By the way, Doug Peterson Anybody think it's funky that like he gets fired by the Eagles? They hired that nobody's heard of. But nobody's even asking about Doug Peterson, like he hasn't popped up in any conversation. Interesting. Anyway. Let's get to some of the sound from last night Warriors go down to the Phoenix Suns. I gave you the note a minute ago. They're the only team in the NBA this year without a three game win streak or a three game losing streak. And finish later of the athletic put together their wins and losses. Justin in the wind, lost term and in the order that they went, lost, lost, win, win loss, Win Win Loss Win Win Loss Loss Win Win Los Los win win loss. About 500 team 10 and nine Steve Kerr last night after the game, talked about how they're up and down play is reflective in their 10 and nine record. Well, I think we're still looking for consistency at both ends. I mean where our defenses up and down on our offense is up and down, So hence the season is up and down until you really establish that you are Something that you are that you have an identity that you that you can hang your hat on something every night. Then you could be a good team. I think right now. We just can't really trust anything that we're doing consistently. We could do things well periodically, but we just haven't put it together. And that's that's why we're You know, just bouncing up and down from one night to the next. Yeah, there have been wildly inconsistent from what we saw two nights ago. I mean, we thought Kelly you bray was gonna turn right back around after the Like how how much you reacted to the weather. It was a reaction to the trade rumors or not How well he played the other night, basically said, yes on your mind and try not to let it affect the game. But we thought Boy, he had a good night. There was a lot of energy James Wiseman with kind of a breakout performance thinking Nice little test here. Let's put together a three game winning streak Tell you Break Junior's former team. He shoots one of 11 from the field. Oh, of five from three point land. Steve Kerr on Kelly, You bring junior shooting struggles last night. It's always emotional coming back to a team that you played for. He might have been too hyped up. I don't know. He just had one of those games. You know, things just didn't didn't go his way. Even his dunk came out, so ball just didn't go inform. I was giving the analogy earlier. The Kelly who bring like he's gonna have moments and nights. Where where he was great, like two nights ago where he's gonna come out. He's gonna hack and Pick up 2001st 70 seconds of the game, Leave the game and then comes back in the second quarter. The score 16 in the second he was on fire. He's got energy, which is why he's gonna fill up the stat sheet in certain categories. But the comparison between him and the guy he's replacing, which is Clay Thompson is that he's gonna hack more. He's gonna He's gonna take more risks. Low percentage risks trying to snatch a steel or block a shot. Where is please just gonna stay between his man in the basket. Clay's gonna create difficult shots. For his opponent. And what I mean by that is she's going to stay on a guy like Chris Paul and not trying to reach on the steel like we saw from Kelly. You bray last night. Who had I compared him to is Kelly, who break for me Right now It's kind of a sloppy eater. Said Allah Pablo Sandoval. You're gonna throw a bunch of junk up there. He's going to swing and miss at a lot of it. Every once in a while, he's gonna connect and it's gonna go. He's gonna have a couple of big games. Where is gonna connect. But as of right now, Kelly, who has been the slop hitter? For the Golden State Warriors. Now can't bays more. This one was interesting he's talking about after the game. How much he believes in this team. How he's looking at the standings and this is what I was thrown out earlier like that the San Antonio Spurs Now we're in the five seat Warriors have dropped to nine. We just saw the Spurs last week and how bad they looked under that anybody believes that the team that's better than the Warriors right now, but the Warriors, inconsistencies have led them to drop into the nine spot again. They're just one game up in the loss column. Over the 14 seed New Orleans Pelicans have played more games. But just one game up in the loss column shows you how much variance there is between the five seed in the 14 seed..

"County has lifted its stayed home shelter in place. And that means the Sharks could be back Skating s AP Center Maybe next week, maybe next week. They do skate tonight. By the way, your your your ship was a shark, so they're three and three to number two sports story is what happened before the Warriors game last night, And that was the change. And they're starting lineup. That's right. Everybody had been agitating because they're starting lineup had one of the worst plus minus is in all of the MBA. We're down 14 Nothing to the Jazz on Saturday night, And the question was deity a bench. Kelly you bray and put in Damian Lee. Steve Kerr is like, Well, I'm going to make a move. But not the one you're thinking of. He goes to James Wiseman and says, Hey, kid, take a seat. I'm gonna put in coven loony. I want to play better D. Now There's a lot of concern about Wiseman's development. Why would you cut his minutes when he needs to become more experience in the MBA? But here's Steve Kerr, explaining it. He just seems to make Make the group home when he's out there. That's why he played so many important minutes for us over the years, you know, in deep into playoff runs, and it's why I wanted to start him tonight just to Get it, get some direction and some continuity defensively to start the game to help us get off to a better start. And he did that. And then I thought James really did a good job, you know, coming in and his minutes and providing energy and, you know, doing what he does. Terms of Scoring, rebounding, just just finding ways to use his athleticism. I look at it, as has learning experience, and it's not nothing bad. It always just loosen the fact that like to try and figure out the rotations and stuff, but Everything is coming together and almost definitely learning over there more so it's really helpful from our development for your for my development as a basketball player, But as a person, I'm not really worried about that. Because I mean, once I get in the game, I could barely impacted. So I just productive minutes as much as possible. Okay, so that's James Wisemen before Kurt was talking about loony, of course, is the veteran Here's the question. So the previous three games San Antonio Knick game jazz game Wiseman played 25 25 25 minutes last night. He only played 16. Right. So legit question is, if this guy is the future, and you're not one in the NBA championship this year, don't you want to give him as much.

"I thought we played okay. But it still wasn't up to where he needed the warriors to be after a 1 31 08 win at Chez Center over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Lakers. You're so LeBron sound coming in there. He's the first Laker to score as many as 46 points. The oldest Laker discourse, many as 46 points since Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in his final NBA game, and today is the one year anniversary of the day that we lost. Kobe Bryant. I actually I hadn't thought much about that. And I honestly the most alarming frenemies. It's been a year for some reason and I know that the last year's just been crazy for everybody. And maybe maybe it started January. 26 2020 When we got this news that Sunday afternoon that Sunday morning, it's a moment. I don't think anybody Will ever forget where they were when they heard that news when they saw that NewsBreak. I remember seeing it come across on Twitter and thinking point TMZ. Usually that stuff is, you know it Z gossip stuff. It's celebrity news, but TMZ going back tol I hate to use this is the calm but If I recall correctly when it started getting a lot of more notoriety as far it is a reliable journalistic source, I would have said it happened of, uh, was going to say, maybe John Edwards. That's when, like National Enquirer was reporting that stuff. And when John Kerry was running for president, bottom line is they report that news and they're not While they're gossip. They're not. Necessarily fake news, right? They're not necessarily putting out stuff that's just Clickbait stuff, and so to report that without any sort of source would have been irresponsible. However, we found out pretty quickly after that, that the report of Kobe Bryant's passing and what's awful is we get these these Internet hoax things all the time where they report someone is past and it's not the case. Unfortunately, this was the case and so last night, I mean the The symmetry across sports is is unique, right, But I definitely felt last night was was an interesting one for LeBron, who ends up putting up his most points as in L, a Laker 46 points in the game. He also scored more against the Cavs than he had ever scored in 16 previous career games against the Cleveland Cavaliers. So not the word we're paying tons of attention with the Lakers are doing but I thought that was interesting. Last night, they did in Cleveland to so LeBron on his his former home court, scoring more points against Cleveland than he had ever scored before. And he put up 46. Anyway, We'll be thinking about Kobe Bryant today will be remembering him. And there were some other guys think James Wiseman checked it on him last night. Actually, Wiseman was one of the focal points of the story for this game because Steve Kerr I won't say it's because of pressure for from fans or from from everybody around the league, but When people have suggested maybe Steve Kerr make a change in the starting lineup, and what's interesting is a lot of the thought process, and the change has been toe open it up a little bit to get a little bit more offense in that first unit, because when James Wiseman has been on the floor That first unit has not been very good, and they struggled offensively. And so Steve Kerr alluded before the game or he said before the game that the separation of Kelly you Bray junior and James Wiseman was kind of what he wanted to do. He wanted to help keep Wiseman on the floor a little bit of times with Wiggins with dream on with Steph, but he also wanted to get him out of that starting unit on basically plugging back invective on Ludie role, which is what we saw last night. Come on, Loony comes out with a defensive presence. He knows where to be on the floor. He's not gonna Not going to set the world on fire offensively for you risk of unloading, but he knows where to be. He's a smart basketball player, and I think the Warriors were happy to have him back. Just as far as big man. Depth goes because Aaron Paschal is obviously an offensive weapon. Lost marquees. Chris who will not as big is as coven. Looney was still certainly an energy factor for them off the bench in the role that they would have liked. I think to have throughout the season and obviously, actually he stepped into the broadcast a little bit last night did marquees Chris sat down and talked Tol Emma and Bob Fitzgerald. Bottom line is the move last night from Steve Kerr ultimately worked out, Okay, The question is long term. What does this do for the lineup? And when does the switch happen the other way when you go back and Kicking this around with Murph actually last week, and I said, I wonder if at some point we're going to get that Steve Kerr rotational switch where I actually did not think Wiseman would be the move to the bench. I thought the move Steve Kerr might make would be to put Kelly you brain that second unit, then put Damien Lee or Ken Basem or some other scoring asset. I think maybe Damian, we would have been the better fit. If you plug him into the starting lineup on a regular basis. Then Kelly who break and open it up a little bit. You don't mind him shooting in that second unit trying to help Eric Pascoe and Brad Wanamaker continue to put a points is that Thinking unit has been really, really good. If you put you bring in that unit. I lost shades of under Iguodala. I think you get yourself basically. Ah, starter in that bench unit, which is ultimately with that that death lineup did for the Warriors back in 20. What? 16 15 16. So, um I don't know that it's like You know that That's going to be the move. It makes the Warriors NBA finals contenders. However, I think Steve Kerr needs to get this offense and started. You know, going a little bit better. And they did flow better without James Wiseman on the floor to start as I said he still didn't get what he gets. 16 minutes last night 17 minutes could put him back on the floor at the end of the game..

"Here's a postscript to the Draymond green technical foul. That wasn't a technical foul saga. The tech has been rescinded by the MBA. So dream on will not be fined and that tech will not count against Dream. On's Total for the season in terms of technical files. I don't know where he stands with that, by the way, but remember when you get to a certain number In the number escapes me right now you are suspended for one game. So dream on is not in danger of having that add to his season technical Total Dreamin has four. Thank you, Tim. Yes. Four. Already damn for one on the season, and Steve Kerr did say last night after the game that Drummond's objection really had no bearing on the Warriors. Ultimately losing that game because there's a pair of free Steve Kerr from last night. The Warriors were already on a bad road anyway before Dre Manz non objection, objection. So I can't really blame it on. Second your official John Butler, and that officiating crew last night. There was definitely way too involved in the game. You can't pin the loss on them. However.

"You know, he's watched the game his whole life that play in the league when he was a kid. He's saying I don't know if that's a roll. And, you know, maybe they should be able to fix that. By the way it away can be our times. You maybe were rejected or got in trouble for something That was a total mistake. People didn't know that you were not at fault. So you were blamed for something that you should have. Blame for I was telling Marcus and Dave during the during the commercial break the last one that one time when I was 16. I got ejected from a baseball game in which a ball it hit me in the hand while I was on second base or a catcher tried to throw me out of second ball. Hit me in the hand broke my hand. Look, my son, I started cursing. I dropped a few f bombs. The umpire ejected me for cursing and I looked up to him and I'm like problem. I'm leaving the game. I promise. I'm not staying in the game. I wasn't cursing at you was cursing and I broke my hand more from Steve Kerr here. He did not want to talk about the officiating. He wanted to talk about how poor defensively his team was. Here's what he had to say. After the game in regards to making changes defensively, he was asked about somebody tried to use an analogy about AH, baseball catcher. Hey, there. There, you know, even umpire calls the ball. It's a ball if he calls it a strike. It's a strike. But Steve Kerr is like in baseball there, not like getting physical with you defense and the Empire is not gonna make calls based on the physicality. Steve Kerr says he may have to make some changes in order to get guys in the right headspace about committing fouls in baseball. If the I'm calls a strike It's a strike, if if he calls a ball, it's a ball. Nobody's reaching the catcher's not reaching and raking the pit. The batter across the arms were raking people across the arms were grabbing people by the waist coming off screens. We're following. It has nothing to do with the refs. It has to do with us. So we practice. Uh Defensive fundamentals every day on it, Z obviously not enough, so I've got to think of some way. To get across to these guys. You know how we're going to defend And maybe it just means if a guy reaches he comes out, you know, and Forget the defense or the rotation, you know, just taking a few games Where if you reach you come out, and we just have a Bunch of guys filing in and out of the game, and if it reached, they come out and then another guy goes in and ex guy comes out when he reaches and That's the only thing I can think of, because we practice defense without fouling every day. It's not happening. So we've got to somehow find a way boy flashes a little league right. Like I remember coach saying to us. Hey, this picture's wild Take a strike Next kid to swing at the first pitch is can pulled from the game. Steve Kerr is like next gotta go in and reach and commit a failure Done. I'm sitting you down rotations over. We're putting in Nikko Mannion. He's play as long as he doesn't reach that, because he's kind of a kind of a defense of Hazzard. Anyway, I don't know if he's gonna put any hands. On anybody. Dick. Oh, man, you know, did have AH little bit of run last night wasn't spectacular is still a pretty rob player. I thought it was kind of funny that Steve Kerr went to Mannion after after the dream on eggs and said he needed Ah little bit of playmaking 209 checks in on the Cast Creek, Texas, and you could always join the conversation for 1580856 to 7 to nine checks. In instance, If anything, they should teach James Wiseman not to mess up. On defense because you might get dream on ejected was actually on offense, trying to think trying an entry pass. They were running back on defense, and Raymond was yelling at him to catch the ball to some extent, or to be in the right position was what he was yelling at, 95 says. I didn't see the see it on TV. But the crew chief made the bigger mistake by not going up to his official to confirm what he saw or heard, especially after seeing the whole team complaining. It was it was a foul ridden game. It was a tough watch of a game. It was not a fun one to watch, but the Warriors Still, I gotta believe in three months out there one Stephanie. It's a big three in that fourth quarter with that wasn't eight minutes left. Maybe seven minutes left. They were down nine or down, 11. They may have still had an opportunity there to come back if you've got your defense of quarterback out there, but again, Fremont ejected for for something he didn't even do right for something That wasn't even about the official. I wanted to get into some of the NFL style, but I don't think we're gonna have time today. We'll have plenty of it with Murph and Mac this morning. Who will join me on the other side.

Joining us at three o'clock. The just is great in a different discipline. Scott Ostler, columnist for Your San Francisco Chronicle, joining us had four in two day Well, every day's a good day to talk to Steve Kerr today and especially Good day to talk to Steve Kerr, because Larry The Golden State Warriors last night did something to a LeBron James team that LeBron James has never had done to him and that is blowing and almost 20 point lead in the game. Which is ah, where the Lakers were up. I think it was 18 19 points. I forget exactly at various points in the game, but blow to double digit lead in the fourth quarter and the Warriors specifically Steph Curry. Doing it in absolute style is going to be a lot of shots. They're gonna be shown when it comes to putting out a retrospective for steps career and we have seen some great ones. But last night is in that book. Because what he did to Anthony Davis was nothing short of foul and spectacular all at the same time, a step back behind the back three over a guy. With a 9 ft wingspan, Steph Curry you a bad, bad man. I'll tell you Who else like your last night ride was Kelly you, Bray? I mean, that's the bet. Seenu, bre look this year. 23, But that doesn't really tell the story. I mean, get four boards yet. A couple steals. He had a couple blocks. He was active. He went to the basket. How about the play that he seemed to have mastered now where he throws the ball out of bounds off? You hear me? He did that to Marcus Ali did it to shrewder on Ben? The job that he didn't LeBron He hounded LeBron and, um, you know, LeBron six of 16 shooting. On the night for for the king. So, Kelly, you bray. Come on down. Have yourself a game was great. It was great to see He's the kind of he's the kind of athlete that can really bother LeBron because You think of you, Bray and you forget he's not 64. He's 67. So you've got great length great quickness on a 67 frame, and you saw it last night, man he's got he's he can get LeBron's right up on LeBron and challenge him and it's awesome to watch. So you're calling there right now. Kelly, you break, Junior is the LeBron stoppers that which is a problem. Stop! No, no, no, Don't don't say you know. Please don't ever say nobody's nobody's LeBron stopper, but the Warriors, you know, Had you spilled for bodies, Adam. Right. It was Katie was All I was was link that all kinds of guys and now in a river in a variety, you guys now it's like, Hey, you know what if you break and play LeBron that well Uh, you know, I love the way he had them up and down the floor. No, just outstanding night for the Warriors. I mean, shooting 50% from the field overall clampdown defense and the fourth quarter warriors harassing the Lakers in the 19 turnovers, 23 points. Off of those turnovers. Um, yeah. All right, fine. You know, letting getting yourself kicked around here for the first three quarters, especially the first half. Is that the ideal way to do it? By the way that they claim down in the fourth quarter was quite impressive. While in the meantime, getting things done on the offensive in S O credit to the Warriors were doing what they did last night. Quite the wind doing it. It's spectacular fashion, and indeed it was all hands on deck. Steph is obviously the head of the snake and what he was able to do last night. But, Larry, you're right you Bray was active. He had He has a full box score loony just to throw out another name. Draymond Green was doing usual Draymond Green's things of what points, But it was doing all the other little things just just an outstanding effort by the Warriors last night specifically In the fourth quarter when things came to a head air Paschal to eat eight final 12 minutes of the game. Eric Paschal's really You know, showing Maura or Morshed scoring ability that I you know, I I loved him at Villanova. Um, hey, was a good player on winning teams, but he was not, You know, his offense of game just kind of came around his final year there. He's taken it to another level offensively and, you know, I mean outside of Steph, he was their leading scorer down the stretch. Another good game for Andrew Wiggins as well. You know 7 11 from the field three or five from behind the three point line. Um, you know, and it's just me personally like to see him go to the hole a bit more get a little bit more action at the free throw line, but I mean, that's that's another solid performance from from him, so I mean, it's you know, you want a bit more consistency from the warriors that you think back then this was a while ago because they didn't play in Phoenix. But you know what? We saw what we didn't see, you know, which is a spark at the beginning of the game against against the Nuggets. You know, for the Warriors. What you looking for? Now is consistency. But to get these flashes, you know, considering how the war you started the beginning of the season. You know those first two games, but before Christmas And how bad they look to where they are right now. You take it in your run with it. I think now that's going to get to the point where there are expectations of this war your team to look as they have for the seven wins of the season, so You're looking out for those guys. That was fun last night specifically in the fourth quarter. Oh, man, it was fun. And any time you can see a team, you know, start to come together and I know a lot of people were critical. People are super critical of the kid Wiseman to me. I mean, he's averaging 10 and six he shooting almost. We owe 48%, which is, you know, that's not bad. The guy's had a 33 game college career. You know, I just think people got a temper their expectations on what he's going to be right away. He's gonna He's going to people with the best lineup doesn't have him in it. And so on and so forth. It's an investment. I mean in and he's definitely worth investing into me. Shown plenty. He sure enough to him that for the investment, you know, man, 19 years old, three games in college, and you know who he's had to butt heads with over the last couple of games, the two best big men in the NBA. In your kitchen, Anthony Davis. I'm all allowed. James Wiseman. Some struggles in those matchups are those games. All right. Come on, man, exacted who's not struggling against those guys? Come on. What are we talking about here? Yeah. No, I mean to me. I mean, I'm just looking for flashes and growth and the kids seems to be a total willing student to get better. And, you know, I mean, it's just to me it Z. I wasn't expecting anything out of him right out of the chute and 10 and six you know for rookie. I'll take that right now. I'm pleased with with Wiseman, I realized There are times where you know he doesn't see the game like he's going to. But I mean, you got I mean, I'm thinking wow for a 19 year old kid who had no college to be thrown in there against the best centers in the in the prime of their careers. You know, I mean to me he's holding his own. I just I don't even know who you're listening to that have whatever their complaints are James Wiseman. I will tell you this Stop listening to those people. Yeah. That's my only bit of advice and be warrior warrior. Twitter like turns on James Wiseman at the drop of a hat for sugar. Well, that makes my point. If they'll turn on him at the drop of a hat. Why are you paying attention to what they're saying? I thought that's a great question, Rod, but I know it's one to ponder. That's all I'm saying. That's all I'm saying. Anybody who's throwing, you know the bus word around with James Wiser anybody was talking about. Well, he's not that good. Or what did they do this or why can't he be? You know what can you match up with those guys that Zach come on, man..

He spent a Lotta time with Kevin Durant is I would talk to him over the years about his experiences. In golden state like not just learning from Steve Kerr and those guys who specifically he was working within. Golden State and it always Katie was always you know like one of the names that he said a lot what I thought he'd be working with the guard so that relationship and then you sean marks played with him in Phoenix.

I was actually also quite as to see you know him banning public with a gun and also his fifteen year old son campaign him so to say so it's the definitely assigned for me that he he's kind of knocked children confidence in front of the people who through testing by his residence, and it's also not you know not that Jerry. Addict from me because the protest is peaceful, protesters will not trying to receive this residents in the state needs. said the wall spread the information that there was some attempt to seek the? Residency so it's quite an emotional psychological reaction from him. I would say and will. Nobody. that. So it's also very strong sign that there is now readiness of from from the official from the state site for any kind of luck that you know this new to build coordination committee by Dehaan Oscar and she team is is trying to do initiate and I think everybody most notably people. In Belarus itself have been absolutely taken aback by the brutality of the reaction by the the Lauren forces to the protesters and the fact that Alexander Lukashenko was was dressed up in riot gear suggests that he doesn't have anywhere to go other than a violent approach. Yes I would also I would also expects it. You know what targeted repressions and they're ready started last week and they continued this week. So what what would serve now is definitely not base wave of unprecedented repression that we. Saw Three days and nights after the elections but still there are targeted repressions and against. Most active people are also criminal case has been initiated against the newly built coordination committee and people. People are invited to some talks with KGB officials until also people actually also bill will try to strike there actually threatened. By the direction openness of the state owned enterprises that they would lose their jobs and so on. So observe already targeted pressure on people, but this wave is still not to the tide because you know. So what international reaction was so the state drives, you know just show from the one handed, it's not ready for the data from the one hand there is the rest of. You know not not to let this protests spread. Within the country how much do you think that's what the foreign observers of said about what's been happening in Belarus for the last couple of weeks is actually forming any decision made by Alexander Lukashenko at the moment. Well I think that it will quite an important aim has been achieved ready and that we actually we have understood that he's not legitimate within the society right within the boat society and I think also problem was that he really did not understand that. Shortly after the elections or before the elections so and. Actually. I think that the reaction was not is at least that. He and his circles really have the distended. Okay. He doesn't have any majority in society, but it has not led so far to his readiness for dialogue just in the all the way he kind of supports the security structures in internal, Misteri Ministry and actually he even gave you know about three hundred medals to those who are actually responsible of for for this incident violence. So he kinds of stresses that the security two structures military is. Actually the most important pillar his powerful for now for the moment, the Steve Kerr show is joining us now he's policy and advocacy. Directorate. Freedom from torture and author of St Spirit Steve. Welcome. Thanks for joining us. Hey On monocle twenty, four Olga a moment ago mentioned the fact that the secret police is still called the KGB I mean, what does that say about the level of influence at Russia's still has in terms of the way that Belarus's going and whether Russia just going to sit this out. Yes I mean I either it reflects influence of Russia, which is August is certainly, very great or it's just almost bizarre retro element to to better under Lukashenko. He doesn't mind thinking in those terms I think it is going to be. So Russia will certainly be an important factor and but at the same time Mosca really doesn't want to be. Getting, further involved in in a very direct since that's going to be difficult for Russia as well. So I think that Lucas. Is playing a very difficult game. If he was giving small confessions, I think he might have some a little bit more success in some homage to blunt things but so far at least the violence has had absolutely opposite effective people become more and more angry the fear obviously quite rightly the last Sunday was absolutely crucial. I would argue that the US huge threats of on ahead of Sunday hoping that people. Would back off and stay at home and actually it was a big rally than ever. So not particular face off. There's no question that Lukashenko loss what happens next we'll still see I'll steve has suggested that Sunday was a pivotal moment some people waiting for what is described as a tipping point when an event causes things to go one way or the other would you say that Sunday was part of that? Tipping Point. Demon this Sunday last Sunday. To Sunday. The Sunday. Just gone when tens of thousands of people came out onto the streets to set by a threat the first Sunday directly after the elections. Yes. I it just completely I mean people never any. Okay. What we're talking about batteries and Ballard who's says, Chris it's not the first Sunday that actions pulses side will have to admit that it also not to the extent that people actually being tortured eating the prisons will have also. took a beast fag, but it's for the first very time that such vast majority of people. So it with their own is is of their families or friends in stone. So you can imagine how many are nets were the strategy when they're where our seven seven thousand arrests. So it's it's quite a big part of the country said it's really I would agree it had an opposite effect and it's also for the first time that you know this special. GRANITZ or gas or a also rubber bullets on there were actually used against own population. It never existed in the history of Belarus in October election protests, people widget shocked and I think it was a shock from the both sides because the state net expected to such mass protest before also before three weeks before the elections would be solved by. About two to five or even six percent of local population came to to railways with Hannele. It's also unprecedented thing was kind of shock from both sides and of course, people people were also by this eighty percent because nobody really believes that anymore I mean. People also really did not quite believe that before I, would say people heading out some kind of feeling that president steelhead had a majority maybe not eighty percent maybe fifty five, maybe sixty but this feeling was there and this style with completely different. So quiet in Jersey, you know quite a big part even I think I would say the majority of people just didn't believe that he actually has any kind of fifty plus and that was the problem that we still have this eighty percents I think people would just. People were just humiliated by that of course, activate shortly afterwards by this unprecedented wave refreshing stave when we look to the further history of batteries, which is being written right now when considering what sort the former eastern bloc countries of have seen in the last three decades. When regime ends, it's generally quite a peaceful affair actually the deleted. is of removed from office. This is unlikely to happen here. Isn't it? Well, I mean, sometimes it has been an sometimes it hasn't been. So when I was a journalist working for the independent, I was the East Europe during the eighty nine revolutions and also join me the fall of Milosevic Milosevic in Serbia and cover dot and there a number of those leaders were ready to use very significant violence and what I'm fascinated by very moved by what was seeing with the courage. A better as protesters today is to see that they are defined vence in the same ways that work very effectively for example, in East Germany where people were threatened with extraordinary for someone particular day in Leipzig in. October nineteen eighty-nine the fact that so many people came out meant regime which had publicly declared its loyalty to force actually back down in Romania I very much. Hope it weren't turn into remain, but we do already see that there are splits within Belarus at the riot police remain loyal. The moment we've seen a number of police units splits off. We've seen a lot of establishment figures putting off in the same way as also does something happened in in Ukraine and the Orange Revolution, and once you see security forces a different security forces splitting away going like enough already as August said, I mean the eighty percent. Claim was was absurdly insulin and the degree of the virus even Grayson seen before and I think this is really interesting. It might end up in huge volumes but I think Lukashenka would lose very very badly that to happen I think it's a regional issue. How if you like bluntly how crazy you are Milosevic. For example, he survived on one occasion ninety seven by giving some concessions and then re clamping down and people just got tired and went back when you use real violence I think it's really difficult. It was a great book written by Richard couple the Polish off I was written about the Iranian revolution. Charlotte. Charlotte's but very much reflected his own country Poland which forty years ago. This month solidarity kind of a huge opposition movement didn't call itself opposition challenge the regime and unthinkable circumstances laying Brezhnev for the very reactionary Russian leader was still in power. They managed to become successful and he said the moment where people stand in front of eastern threatens violence, the pre curry signing backstops, and instead someone stands there and doesn't back down he said, this is where the revolution begins, and after that in effect is the exact the precipice. If you're to violence, you make people more angry if you start making concessions than people go. We have lost our fear and in a sense the certain moment difficult to prediction events but describable. There is no way back to the regime and it still seems a little bit early to say but I think it's very, very difficult to see how Lukashenko come back from this. If he steps back more gently than, of course, it will be peaceful. The protests have been fun tastic peaceful and very, very consciously so far the extended even cleaning up rubbish because I really vary consciously very civic. Minded. So he might just go off and disappear off to Russia for example, and as it will live happily ever after but he tries to bring out all of the guns. Then I think you know all bets are off but I don't think it was a good ending for him whichever way it goes Steve Crozier and Elga agenda over there. Thank you for joining us on monocle twenty four.

Is that if I told you at the time right that when they were losing him you know when they were losing durant and gaining him that it would turn into Andrew Wiggins and a top three protected first round pick. I think we would have said at the point in time. Okay I got it because you're already seeing the first blush results on NBA NBA twitter. That he's kind of playing the role of Harrison Barnes and the first championship run remember Harrison Barnes was the crucial member of that was and that wiggins is going to play that role. Livingston's not there anymore right so so he would be that guy. And if you're Steve Kerr you're like I can. Let's get to this guy if I'm coaching up. Three million green and his personality Wiggins of former number one overall here comes wiggins. I'm thinking he's thinking that and is now just think about it. Think about it next year.

Draymond Andrew Wiggins and number five stroll on the floor and number five could be the first overall selection in the draft left or the fourth overall selection in the draft. They could have all those guys showing up there next year and have the first and fourth overall picks in the draft tiredly possible
