"To brooklyn nets are so good. It's a little unfair. They play the next monday and they weren't getting enough stops in the first half. This is what makes them so dangerous.

Wisconsin governor issues new mask order after Assembly vote
"The governor has just Declared a new public health emergency shortly after the assembly voted to overturn the one he issued earlier this year. This is now coming from with politics dot com. I just wanted to make sure your listeners were aware of that. So we so Tony Evers understand you, 3 23 or a nim urgency, a rule that he is going to be issuing under statue to 52. That's the important question. Azzawi were just talking about with Steve Nash on the program. Hold on. Let me see if if we have, I don't have that. It's not on my whisper all itics dot com. This is breaking and that doesn't clarify that. But it says the governor's new order also includes a mask mandate. You're the one he's put in place since last late last summer. Now, remember, tomorrow the signature goes on the joint resolution between the two leaders of the two houses that's supposed to kill this thing so Well. Ah, very interesting Turn of events this afternoon. Yeah, This is interesting. And I'm looking here at Channel 58 at a Milwaukee and they're not. They're not. They're not clear. This looks is executive. This is executive one on five emergency order one. Establishing a mandate, so I'm not. I'm not sure which statue that's falling. In fact, it could fall under both because there is a school of thought that says that in last the assembly in the Senate actually sign it. That boss who apparently is already been on bended knee, begging Tony Evers to do an emergency rule a rule through the Rulemaking Authority of the Joint Committee for the Review of Administrative Roles. Um, you know, it's it's hard to know whether or not he's just trying to do a double whammy here to stick it to the Republicans and those 56 Republicans that were sticking it to the state of Wisconsin. You deserve this.

"It's bad but it's just like he clearly does not want to be the guy that he was for so long and i think that he is conscious of the criticism of string. Dribble dribble i so basketball that frankly he was terrific at and like look they got you because you are james harden and you are really good at scoring the basketball. So i eventually. I assume he's gonna shake shake out of these habits but right now it's just it's just strange to see him make plays like that. Honestly no i. I hear you for sure. Look i think he's walking on eggshells a little bit around kyrie irving right. You know making sure that he's feeling completely empowered. You look the shot chester bution last night. I mean kyri easily takes the most shots for brooklyn. I really don't think that was a coincidence. I think they were trying to like welcome back. It's been a a a touch and go situation. These last couple of weeks for brooklyn and so. I would understand why they would want to do that with him. Specifically i also think. James is just assist hunting in fashion. That i've really never seen before. I mean he is out there. Just trying to get as many as he wants to be seen as unselfish i think he will cool off with that a little bit as they go but they really do need his passing. It's going to be a new aspect of balancing their offense between the stars. He kicked out to reggie perry for a corner three when he was standing underneath the basket last night. Like what is going on. I stuff like that is just like maybe i'm just overreacting to one game a couple games. Whatever but it's just like a complete. I just never thought. I would see james harden play basketball this way i hear you look just wanna say real quick thanks to jc from france. Dylan scott. They all wrote in really awesome questions about the nets. Were just not going to have time to get to them but michael. I did want to read one. From jackson kind of a love letter to the brooklyn nets in. I wanna get your take on this as we try to get our minds wrapped around this new era of nets. basketball jackson writes. I'm writing to you as a bummed out nets fan. After the james harden trait. I lived in new york city when the nets were climbing back out from the depths of the pierce garnett aftermath. I used to enjoy reasonably chip cheap tickets in a team that played hard under coach atkinson. While the main draw was often the nets opponent it was encouraging to see the development of players. Like jared allen kerris avert joe harris and even de ngelo russell the broadcast team with an eagle and sarah stock felt like a personal treat for those flipping on a mid week nets game..

"He got caught up too much in the mano a mano with colin sexton which is not what you want it. All i mean. I mean kevin durant and james harden and watching a duel between kyrie irving and colin. Sexton is not title contention basketball. It's just not and the coach has to have some level of influence there late in games to get better stuff to notch. Just let the players do whatever the heck they want. Kyri also had a player control foul just being too aggressive. You know searching the The game winning play rather than just playing the way that he should the other thing. That really bothered me michael. It's a smaller thing. But i'm actually okay with this. General philosophy of steve nash. I'm gonna be hands off coach. i'm going to trust my superstars. Once they sort of get the pecking order right or katie is always involved. Hardens got the ball in his hands late in games. I think it's actually going to be good for them to just roll the ball out and let those guys go to work because they're amazingly talented players and great instinct scrape. Ask why you all that stuff. But when you're a coach in that situation you're gonna make your money on the minor things. The matchups defensively that we were talking about an ato's right they get the ball left side line. One point two seconds left in the In the first overtime tie game this is their chance to win right. This is like when nick nurse would pull out some crazy play that he found on a vhs tape in nineteen ninety three and it would turn into a game winner right. This is where he's made his reputation as a coach. Steve nash has kyrie irving inbound the ball. He's got james harden behind half court and he's got kevin durant as obvious only option in the paint coming towards the basketball. You play that play out. Kyrie irving triple checks on the past. He misses kevin durant completely when he breaks towards the ball. He thinks twice about it. He thinks three times about it and he finally puts a bailout past deep into the corner for katie. To try to you know. Throw up this contested. Tough turnaround over. Larry nance junior. Meanwhile hardened barely moves at center court. Because he's the decoy and nobody else including joe harris or anybody else's even working themselves open as a second option steve nash. That is not good enough for an ats in that situation with the game on the line you have got to do a lot better than that first of all and should be inbounding the ball not kyrie irving hard. Your best passer trust him. He's your point guard. everybody agreed. Put the ball. In his hand he would find kevin durant when kevin durant was open. He wouldn't have thought twice. And i actually like kyrie irving who's quicker and more elusive and capable of hitting shots on the run absolutely more than that. Decoy role than james harden. Those two guys should have been flipped on that play and they should have had some other action going. If kyrie irving was going to miss the first and most obvious option give him another option. They even have it on that play. So i'm really nit picking on this one particular sequence but they just mailed it in and that's not good enough right now. Michael they have kevin durant and there's absolute prime kyrie irving and now they've got james to and right now. They're five and five in clutch games this season..

"Again in his second straight game and Annette's uniforms pick out Let the heart finds Durante frozen home with her right hand. Great fine by Harden and Katie delivered That's two for two After the trade for James Harden. It's a two point win over Milwaukee on Monday. Harden and Kevin Durant combining for 64. They don't have Kyrie Irving on the floor yet. Missed his seventh consecutive game, coach Steve Nash says we could see him Wednesday. I ve got some work yesterday, possibly today, so he'll get some work tomorrow and then we'll go to Cleveland, home of your available on Wednesday night. What you want to see is just him to get some time. Like you said in his leg so that he's more able T o that back to playing. You know, it's if you haven't played, you know there's no way you can simulate it. So I think it's important that he gets a little bit. Extra work in his that's prepared. It's possible to play Wednesday. Nets against Cleveland on Wednesday. And as for how this Brooklyn team will fit together, ESPN analyst Tim Legler his ability to be able to control possessions. It's unlike any other player in the league now in Houston, it was really him every trip. And then you put 43 point shooters around him. This is a little bit different now because he draws guys and when that ball gets swinging out, ends up in the hands of Kevin Durant against a rotating defense or guys closing out and their space forget it. It's impossible to stop them. So I'm just really impressed. Two games in tow, how easily these two guys have meshed together. The impact of James Harden is undeniable. The guy's just simply one of the best offensive players of creating offense this league has ever seen. And Brooklyn's now seeing it for the first two games with him, all right. I've been reviewing the rules that you got KD and you have hardly had Carrie. That's three You get five. I think this is the Joe Harris question, right? How do you fit in? And the new look next rotation If you're not one of those big three Texted a buddy tonight. How much would I like to be Joe Harris Right now. The guy's not going to take a contested shot all season. It SSM a zing to be him and living in that world because he's got one of the best strokes in the league already, and now he's in a situation where there's just not enough defenders. To find him. If he just stays active is gonna get all the looks. He wants DeAndre. Jordan is a perfect fit at center, also.
Harden debuts for Nets after blockbuster trade
"In the embassy. James Harden will start Saturday night as in his Brooklyn Nets debut against the Orlando Magic, A three time NBA scoring champion, became available to play earlier in the day. After all, the players in the blockbuster trade that sent him from Houston to Brooklyn completed their physicals, and that's coach Steve Nash immediately put hardened into the starting lineup. He said he would determine as the game goes along whether he needed to limit the All Star Guards minutes saying the Nets don't want to run the battery's down on a new Christmas present this early Hardin is not practiced with the Nets, and Nash said the team would try to keep things simple. Today, though, expected Harding they expect hard to
Houston Rockets to Trade James Harden to the Nets
"Superstar James Harden said after Tuesday's lost to the Lakers situations. It was crazy. It was something that I don't think you'd be fixed. So yeah, thanks. That was the last straw after a months long effort to be traded, And if you like reality shows hardened, couldn't have landed in a better spot. Houston traded the future Hall of Famer to Brooklyn to team up with other greats Kevin Durant and carry Irving. If Irving actually decides to play again this season, he's on personal leave because, he said to be furious about the Nets. Hiring Steve Nash is head coach and his relationship with Durant has reportedly grown distant even with lack of death. Brooklyn has the talent to be a champion, but the personalities to potentially sink the squad in a hurry. So what's this mean for the East leading Celtics right now? Not much. There's still right there with the Nets, Bucks, Heat and Sixers among the conferences elite, but they've also seen firsthand how team influenced by Irving can plummet. Adam

"Moves of my traders are the work of three pointer. That's all he could do, James Harden. No, not hard, but, uh, he had a lot. He's got a lot of Momenta. Um he is running. How do you coach your guys like that? Now. Which are you talking about? Are you talking about harden? Kevin Durant, Kyrie, Irving, Heaven Direct. Thank you. Listen, you coach that guy and he's telling the Manager and the coach. Dash. Is that isn't it? Yes. Steve Nash, listen. He's like a puppet. He's gonna go with what these gentlemen are gonna say between hard. And Durant. He can't He can't stand up the guys that are disproportional. You can't go to Because they know what they need to do to it. I like it. Remmy. I appreciate the phone call brother. Thanks so much I love the conspiracy theory is well that the Mafia might have leaned on showing marks to get this deal done. Would say that also ready in Ventura, California sounded a lot like a wrestler. I'm gonna turn to Pete. The body Baladi, our resident wrestling aficionado. What wrestler? Did he sound like? Was that a macho man from Remmy? I'm slightly a macho man. I think he sound like his own character. And it was a character in that, okay? So Robbie could be his own w W E character. Sounds like like something kind, sir. Answer. Bogus is in for headlines and bugs out to know about what you think about the Mafia theory there, But I did want just your straight thought on the trade. What do you think about the Nets, mortgaging eight draft picks or seven draft picks for all of this? Yeah, I just I can't fathom the logic of We don't know where Kyrie Irving is or when he's coming back. You know, we should do trade for an unhappy, overweight guy. That seems like a thing that we should add to our table. So that's our real hard sell from a but They're better than they were a couple of days ago, and I think their lack of depth problems being blown out of proportion. I think there's still enough guys around those three when they're all together if they're ready to be a very useful team. And if the Sixers were the other team, and all of that was true, and Ben Simmons was up for grabs here to keep Harden off. Another Eastern Conference team is also a win for the Nets here, too, because if he goes there, then that's a different road through the east for Brooklyn. So There's also a slight wind in them, keeping him from one of their competitors. I don't like the trade, but I get it more as likes the trade. Do you like it or dislike it? I guess I don't like it because I think it's more likely to be the defining moment of the franchise for the next decade in a negative way that it is in a positive way because they really have two years now to win an NBA title and Even if everything goes OK for them, they're still LeBron on the other side. That's good enough right now to prevent them from winning. So the window is really, really small right now, If the window was two more years, there's a four year window to get this done. I'd be a little more okay with it, but they've given themselves two seasons. Get this done. And that's asking a lot. Even in a perfect scenario of hardened and Durant and Irving meshing well together. We're gonna have a lot of discussion on this trade all morning long, especially from the rocket side of things as well. But maybe also has the rest of our headlines this morning. So what do we begin? But we begin with this trade and because of it and injuries, the Nets only had nine players available last night at the Garden. They were also playing for the fifth time in seven days. So Steve Nash was proud of the way I guess the Mafia was two of the 1 16 109 win, depending on who they bet over the next. They came out and or professional did a great job defensively moved. The ball offensively made simple place didn't turn it over, you know, battle on the boards so overall, really proud of the way they played under. What was it? It was 29 guys played. Seven of them scored in double figures led by 26 from Kevin Durant. The Knicks, meanwhile, have now lost four in a row. It has four straight wins for the Blazers, 1 30 to 1 26 over the Kings.

N.B.A. Investigating Kyrie Irving Over Maskless Party Video
"Back here. First things first and we're talking about kyrie irving the brooklyn nets star has been inactive for the nets last four games due to personal reasons and now a new report says it will be at least another week before he rejoins the team. Yesterday video emerged that appeared to show maskless at a birthday party. Reportedly dad of his sisters this on top of a picture going around of kiranas zoom call last night for a political candidate twenty minutes before his nets were slated to tip off so much going on. Here here's head. Coach steve nash on his point guard. And where things are you sure. Can you sure like. I said right now. I got to focus on coaching. The team even get the best out of him. So i can't make any predictions are prognostications about things that are outside of this building this evening. We got our hands. The you know we've had this five games in seven nights and we're in a place where we're really trying to put our foundations and saw my hands are full there. Then that's really what i gotta focus. I don't know if i was asked to. Curry was coming back. My answer would be of course not sure i was getting more comfortable with of course than a shore but crisper serge's is joining us. Now broussard will. What did you make of the latest news surrounding kyrenia in. What's natia to say in all of it. Well i let me start with this caveat. hopefully you hope and pray that there's nothing serious going on with kyrie irving whether in his family or mentally or something like that from talking to people about various people about this situation. I don't think there's anything serious like that going on. I think everything is fine in that regard. But i just had to throw that out there. I want to say a few years ago a couple years ago a few people around the league told me this and it's pure speculation but they said don't be surprised or i wouldn't be surprised if one day kyrie irving just shocked. Everyone and walked away from basketball now again. That's pure relation on their part but it's based on their knowledge of his personality and just seeing his moves in the nba. Then we have kyri last june about six weeks before the teams went to the bubble sane on zoom call with other players. I'm willing to give up everything for social justice reform and then last night we have him on a zoom call for the democratic candidate for manhattan district attorney while the nets should be are playing their game or right before when he should have been at the nets game. I kyrie irving is acting like he does not want to be a professional basketball player and i stress professional. There's a difference between professional basketball player and a basketball player of professional basketball player. Plays when he doesn't want to at times. A pro basketball player play is available understands. He has to go out and earn that paycheck of pro basketball player or athlete plays through life circumstances and dramas and the nets have got to get to the bottom of this pronto. If kyrie does no longer to be a professional basketball player they. He asked to make a decision he asked. Let them know. If i'm the net. I think i re down and i have this conversation with him and i also tell him. You're not getting paid for the games. You've missed already and you won't be getting paid for the games you presumably miss. Because i assume that leaves gonna put him under quarantine for colby violations from that party. If kyri says he wants to play a he does want to be a pro basketball player. I accept that. And then as soon as i'm done talking with him i pick up the phone and start calling around the league to trade him and i don't know who would take him at this point but if the houston rockets would take him. I would trade him for james harden yesterday.

"Kyrie Irving to alert Steve Nash and in a similar manner, like he alert his teammates, and at the very least, if you're not compelled to be professional enough to do that, when your head coach has to be the one who reaches out to you, dammit, respond! Let me read this. And I'm reading. Looking up at the screen. Steve Nash said he does not know why Kyrie Irving won't play tonight against the Sixers, as in he is unaware of what his personal issue is before the game. Obviously, Nash said he reached out to Kyrie did not hear back. After the game, which encompasses 2.5 hours, which gives carry Irving. Ample time to get on the right page to at least professionally. Do the right thing. Still didn't respond to Steve Nash. You got to suspend them. Well, you got it. Here's the other side is his ass. But here's the other side, Steve Branch Unless Steve Nash intentionally wanted to spend them being I don't care what anybody thinks. I don't care what Kevin Durant things I would suspend him. You know why? Because eventually and at this rate it might be in a month eventually carry. Irving is not gonna be on the nets. Right? Either he retires from basketball. He wants to travel the world. Whatever he wants to do. I don't know how and I've said this before. I don't know how long Congress gonna stick with basketball but eventually carry Irving's gonna be gone, but the Brooklyn Nets will still exist. You cannot allow one guy to do whatever the hell he wants. Yeah, but here's having Here's the thing and it didn't affect them as a team, like sometimes this affect you as a team. It didn't seemingly affect them, and I think that's a testament to It's the staff. It's the D'Antoni and Jack Vaughn, who actually had this issue last year that he dealt with. So maybe there's this an experience in dealing with Kyrie being Kyrie. The other thing. This is the other side of the other side of this conversation, Bt is Steve Nash is is still a young head coach is only is 8/9 game in the they're five and four. So his ninth game as a head coach, something like this where you're less. We're not certain about what's going on. Used. You make it go away. You make it. This is a personal matter for Kyrie. We'll discuss it. You know, at a later date instead of bringing it to the forefront that he was confused, and I'm not informed unless he was upset and mad and and wanted it to be brought out there. I'm not gonna cover for carrier. Think if I'm Steve Nash covered, But isn't that the responsibility of a coat sometimes. I mean, a certain says you can't you don't want it to be disrupted, especially especially if this is something serious right? At the end of the day I go back to the first thing I said, I'm I'm reserving judgment. On why Kyrie missed it the game because I don't know what was going on whether it was mental health or whether there's something as you and his family. I have no idea and I'm not going to speculate on it. But the fact that he didn't inform anybody want you saying the same thing that ain't it louder? Yeah, but that's that's That's my problem. My problem is that he didn't tell anybody Now. I also my also my problem, is it Steve Nash puts him on blast? Oh, no, but this is not business. It's not. It's not, And I don't think Steve Nash did it on purpose. I think Steve Nash did that by an experience that that's the point I'm making even if you're okay. And and that's that's possible, All right, great to that. That's possible because you get hit with this 30 minutes before you meet the reporters. Okay, um or seasoned coach, Not a. Not a. Not a not a basketball mind because we know he knows the game. Yep, a more seasoned coach, maybe collect his thoughts and positions it differently. That's fair. That's an interesting point. But if I'm Steve Nash, like I've heard, um, theories this morning that you know Steve Nash similar to what you just said needed to maybe do a better job of covering for Kyrie, Irving, But you know what? If he did that there's there's 11 12. Other guys you gotta worry about, and there's a lot of young guys on that team. And suddenly you know again, they could say, Listen, we had Joe Harris on the show two weeks ago. Take you just said that. I'm gonna take Jody's word. He seems like a stand up guy. Do I fully believe that this just might. This is just may do I fully believe the glowing scouting report that Joe Harris gave of Curry Irving's a teammate, just speaking for myself. My answer is no because Joe Harris, along with Laverne and did witty and Jared Allen and three or four other guys last year were railroaded by Akari Irving after being teammates for a month when Carrie Irving said, these guys ain't good enough, so no matter what Kyrie did since then I will not have forgotten that and there's other players that you have to guide. And if you look the other way or you cover for him, it's a horrendous message to a team that's trying to build the culture of togetherness. You gotta be in this together and put every Irving's on an island by himself, and it's disruptive, but it's predictable, but doesn't every couple months But you're getting a little deep because we don't know what actually happened. I need to find out what happened. And so my point on Steve still didn't reach out to Steven. There's almost no matter what happened. 100% agree that way he reached out to a reporter. I think a reporter asked him and he probably bonded back. Steve Nash task to me didn't respond back. We don't know when Steve Nash reached out, asked him before the game 30 minutes before the game. He might have been wrapped up in some. I have no idea. I'm not defending Carrie..

I didn't know that he was. We knew he could score but my fear and it kind of worked out that way. And they weren't the same type of player.

Boston - Patriots-Chiefs Week 4 Preview
"We are joined now by sports NFL analyst Michael Vick Michael What. Do you give camp in the Patriots against the chiefs this weekend Got A shot. So always a fifty, fifty chance to anything can happen in. The New England patriots could be the first thing that upset the city chiefs this season but a couple things are gonNA have to happen. The defense is going to have to come to play, and unfortunately for the past, there's only one Stefan. Gilmore. On a fail the other corner nefer right side opposite again was not step up tremendously and try to somehow someway lock down the trio receivers. The Kansas City chiefs has that. Pretty much ran right though on Baltimore Ravens last week in the Baltimore Ravens headed great secondary and I watched them go up and down the field with ease and. It was because of the speed that they possessed. Throughout combinations and the play call them angry they made that game so difficult. But in terms in their pages, ball control is going to be essential. Whether this cam running back back admitted, they're going to have to control the clock, keep the chiefs off the feel as much as they can and try to score as many points as they can. But I think the biggest Kansas game is just winning the game time possession a not length touch Rome's get out and be as dangerous the threat he's GonNa be because you can't stop Patrick you can only hope to contain them. Anger going to let him loose. In as as a team, you've really gotta find their rhythm early if you donate New England. Patriots said, I think that's GONNA be in the run game they have to control the clock down to control the town possession in keep Patrick mahomes on Saturday next avery.

To watching Rachel Maddow or either reading a book about White Rachel White Fragility like it takes years conversations in years of development and years of our work, and we're not gonNA barely touch everybody in this lifetime but we have to be also very patient with the fact that as a society we're going in a better direction time-honored is really law.

I don't even know what that means like. I know people with Masters and.

It's like really giving time to learn about these things. You ask how was phrased but I've given time to research that slavery didn't end in eighteen, sixty, five I've given time to research that black people were still discriminated against getting mortgages in the nineties we just talked earlier about how black families are convinced to sell their homes for cheaper than white families or a appraisal rates are higher for whites than blacks these are systemic.

"He wasn't ignore because he was like like he's white certainly wasn't working against him. There's really not much out of action when it comes down to spare tires I think it's very important to establish that. You'll white privilege doesn't necessarily mean that you. have an advantage. It just means that you don't have a disadvantage because you're whiteness and speaking of that, and that's what kind of brings us again to our topic for today. So we actually took some time to have a conversation with a young man who feels very strongly about the benefits of white privilege and kind of how that's impacted him and driven him to where he is today in his life. So we had a great conversation. We recorded a couple of weeks back that we love you. All to check out and a dive in a little bit further. Yes. It was our honor to bring on gentleman by the name of Alexander Devoe who currently right now is human resource professional at Rutgers University and is story or many people who have lived the life that he lived by the unlikely but he certainly speaks a great deal in a testament on pal. His Whiteness may have secured a bag or help. So shuttled to Alex who is doing a lot of positive things in. Many different spaces but more importantly enlightening the masses about the realities of the world in the climate currently experienced made a mistake in his podcast to speak about us on concerning other demographics and not bringing people want as a reference point. I, thought it would be a good faith and good effort if we're going to speak about white privilege and we're going to speak about the realities. of Or the mindset and the philosophy of a white person in this culture that we currently have right now I'm in this point is society it would be in our best interest bring somebody from their demographic. So Alex Devoe I would love you to introduce yourself tell us who you are where you come from and your story and one. Thank you for coming. Thank you for having me.

"But either way like Jason Kidd brought their team the to NBA finals your relationship with the majority of the people in that building. Right that made sense. Dirk Fischer again had a relationship with Phil. Jackson may not have played with the next blood played the Phil Jackson for I don't know twelve of fifteen. Years in the League whatever the number might be right that part may make sense. Steve. Nash has no real relationship with the nets. He doesn't although like I said, they tried to highlight the fact that he might have had this small relationship. With Kevin Durant, the fact of the matter is we know that this hiring kind of nowhere we know that yes, there was although we can argue, yes, they wanted to rock the bow and think outside the box. A little bit and maybe it's like bringing in Steve Nash can be the same kind of jolt that bringing in Steve Kerr might have been right. But again, do we know if they were really like interviewing some of these other higher-profile coaches would experience again, some guys who have like championship rings on the table that would be my question I'm sure they had a short list of backup options. We may never know if they actually spoke to anyone. Really. Didn't any true kind of interviewing for them but I mean I'll say if you can get Steve Nash think it's a smart higher and I think if I'm running that front office regardless of how it looks you look at that roster right and you've got you've got Katie is your best player but you're next three best players are ball dominant guards. You Know Kyrie Carsl Avert, Spencer Dinwiddie. So if you have a guy who's been one of the top. Ten players of all time at that position and he can lead your team. You're probably a good shape to kind of go after that guy, he's going to say, yes I wouldn't fault them for making the call like I think. said this is well like I. Think Steve Nashes Kinda thrust into a position based on circumstance where we are calling this white privilege. But I don't want that to take away from the fact that Steve Nash probably is. Deserving this of this role in this position and that kind of again opens up the larger question of of where we are with this episode based on what why don't we thank you. So qualified two time MVP I don't know how many all-stars Johnson was a terrible when being coached but that is magic and get a job without being an assistant coach either right also say that people who have similar experience too Steve. Nash also had some coaching success as well. Using. Kit in the style of play is very similar in a sense eight until culture where I think that a Jason Kidd is less naturally talented than Magic Johnson the same thing goes for a Steve Nash. I don't think again if a guy like Derek Fisher can come off the ground and get a job. I don't think there's any reason to doubt why why Jason Kidd or to a main point why Steve Nash is deserving of the tyler he got to me like I said, it's not a question of was he qualified I think it's just the matter of. Circumstance and level of role that he's stepping into just open that up to like if this was a black player coming out of the League who hadn't Kinda worked his way up the ranks would he get a look at this job and that's the question of really what is white privilege white privilege in this case or Steve Nash comes down to that..

"Admit that yell publicly because most people in his position wouldn't have the humility to actually say to what to take from that I mean, can you even be looked at in bad waiver saying that I think it actually is only beneficial for to admit that because if he denies white privilege is it played a role into it even if they did it in. This point it seems like he might be oblivious but you admit it, you own it. You put out on Front Street. You look like you're above the pettiness. So I think it was very strategic for him to come out very quickly and admit that that could be a possibility or his case is a possibility on why the process was much shorter for help to nash credit other athletes who never. Had coaching experience have also jumped into big roles Babbitt to be black like Derek Fisher like Jason Kidd those who were actually played generals who were outstanding point guards near time than were championship level point guards and champions. Steve Nash is not a champion, but they had been held in high regard, but they also got their shot before other people who might have been waiting. So there's much to be. Said, the white privilege thing could be a generalization but ultimately, we know that if not for this case typically vindicated in a lot of different areas and we definitely could speak to mark Jackson in other coaches who have been fired after successful season directors. Last coach before nick nurse on was a part of that. So yeah, I think it could be a large possibility, but it's inconclusive at this for. You know one of the other benefits of you know white privilege is also when you take. A high paying high ranking job that you have a PR company that helps you answer questions and one of the things that that PR company probably said was you know what? Go ahead and say you know what I got this because of white privilege it allows you to take ownership of something right and here's the thing.

I think You know, one of the you know again, Like I said, there were 14 and 2012 2013. So I think what that might be evidence is that that black coaches may not get that second opportunity fast enough, or may get fired more quickly than white coaches. I think there are there could be conversations to have around that. I just don't know. You know why the Steve Nash higher itself would be an example of white privilege.

"And then, of course, in its star driven league, there is absolutely no way That's Steve Nash. Gets that job without the approval of both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Specifically the latter. Who He developed a relationship with While serving as a consultant at Golden State. I mean, I've seen the reverence with which Durant and Nash talk about each other. So This is clearly a higher That Kevin Durant. I was comfortable with. Not just may be comfortable with he may have Rallied for Push for. I don't know all that, But I do know he likes this hired and he has a relationship with Nash. So take all that into consideration. And I think Despite his lack of experience, Steve Nash is qualified for the Brooklyn Nets head coaching job. All time. Great player. Those guys get a chance to coach Hetty Smart winning guards. Those guys get a chance to coach. He's both of those. She's both of those. First year coach. Well, those guys have had success last three. Championship winning franchises have had first year coaches.

"Agree. So yeah, I mean like even just the kind of stuff where you know, the drag screen out of pistol would be you know, the screen real quickly is you transitioned, you know, he was just showing the big men little little subtle like, you know, you jab this way first your imagine have to move that way and then you break back to set up that screen now he's behind and now you have more room like I never seen that and I'd seen people teach drug screens and Pistol like, you know, four years never had really heard that but you know why you knows that well, it's because he's the guy who ran it so well, right and everyone runs that offense found everyone wants pieces that often so I'm really excited. I mean, you know, what what what do you know about him as far like, you know, the communication and and culture that you know, the all big tub Words we use now. Well, I think they're kind of two big things or three big things. I should say that immediately came to mind with me. The first was everything that I heard from his time with the Warriors as long as a consultant and occassional coach was that the players absolutely adored him and that they got along well with him and that they loved when he came in and they learned so much from him and that Kevin Durant in particular got along incredibly well with him. So, you know, I don't want to speculate and say that you know, this was a move that Durant demands or anything like that, but I would be shocked if Durant vouching for Nash was not a huge part of this decision making process for Brooklyn Mac. And then the second thing that really stands out to me is the really first thing that I thought of when saw this news was a quote from Steve Kerr when Nash first came on board with the Warriors and correct. told reporters that he can't that he Steve Kirk can't talk to Steph Curry and Kevin Durant as well as a player like Steve Nash can because Kerr was a reserve who couldn't do math on the court and Nash was a superstar who understood all that comes with being a superstar and he could communicate with curry and Durant in a way that no one else could and I don't think he just meant from a basic management motivation communication standpoint. I think he also meant that minutiae that you're talking about where Nash had a larger role and he had to find those tiny areas where he could create an advantage that favored him in his team and he had to leverage some of his weapons to create other weapons. And those are the kinds of things that players like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving not only need to hear but they're thirsty to hear that. The Thirsty to find someone who is on their level as a talent who can help get them to and even further level where they can manipulate defenses a little bit further and I think that Nash like you said, he he just knows the details so well and he knows them at a superstar individual level, which I think is a whole nother element bulb as well into that such a great Point really great point and I could sense that to seeing that on the court and.

"She captures a lot of what you're saying and she also refers to us by our nickname. So she says hi bubble Ben and Mike the POD I love the show longtime listener fellow Brooklyn. Resident. Michael I woke. Up this morning looking forward to another grey day of games and as I checked the NBA news I see that my Brooklyn Nets have hired Steve. Nash is the head coach I thought what a coincidence there must be some great assistant coach in the League named Steve Nash that they've poached from a team to lead their title contenders next season much to my surprise. nope. It's the Steve. Nash last I checked he's never coached before I've just about had it with my team. The KYRI experience has been like having multiple root canals well, totally sober I Miss Kenny Atkinson and I miss rooting for a likeable team. Please tell me that this was a good higher give me some good news I feel like I'm taking crazy pills and need a little reprieve. Dr Julius asking for your diagnosis and some help here clearly First of all I. Yeah. The the root canal part well, well, sober no medication does not sound like fun at all but hey, what do you think Michael I mean do you have any good news for? Can you buy into the positive spin or are you skeptical? Wow that email in a direction I was not expecting to be perfectly honest with you. Julia kept it real aright I mean, she's not messing around. She's a Brooklyn resident she she's a cynical New York City diehard. She's out there wanting to have Steve Nash prove himself to her. Now I respect that opinion. I mean look again giving the kids to someone who has literally no head coaching experience when you're walking into championship expectations in a way that I mean it's fair to say Steve Kerr wasn't really walking into those expectations when he became head coach in two, thousand, fourteen, fifteen for the two thousand fourteen, fifteen season with golden state. This is completely different. There's a lot of pressure here I mean at the end of the day. This is what Kevin Durant wants. Right. So keeping the name of the game and we've talked about this so many times in speculating about who would be the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, the name of the game is to keep your superstars. Happy, right. So if Katie's happy if Kyrie signed off on this and is pumped to play for Steve Nash and they can all make that work then there's reason for for excitement And everything else it doesn't even matter like if Gedi was not happy with the higher, you could if Katie did not want to play for Gregg Popovich and they and they and they hired Gregg. Popovich than the NBA that we live in right now is a world where that doesn't even really register. So the fact that Katie is reportedly behind this and reportedly for it and he has a relationship with Nash. All this that matters at the end of the day that's like the underlining fundamental point reason for this higher. Yeah. So I want to just say this Julie a focus on the temperament and the personalities rather than the experience. Look you already kind of major bed when you decided to go after Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Now those two superstars did not fit at all with what Kenny Atkinson was trying to build. They did not really fit that well with the young core that was already existing..
Brooklyn Nets Hire Steve Nash As Head Coach
"We are here. On the heels of a big announcement. Yeah. Steve Nash Future Hall of Famer. Future Hall. Of famer is the coach new coach of the Brooklyn Nets. What's going on listen I? Think it's it's it's a good. It's a good pairing with him and Katie. You know as well as anybody that there was a pre existing relationship Steve was a player development consultant for Golden State. 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. So there's a real. There's a real respect there as well. So I think it made a lot of sense.
Brooklyn Nets hire Hall of Famer Steve Nash as head coach
"Welcome to the low post podcast where the plan was to talk hilariously awful game sevens and DEFCON. In Milwaukee with the one and only Kevin Arnovitz but Mr Kevin Arnovitz about five minutes ago news dropped from the news gods on Mount Olympus of Basketball Steve Nash Steve Freaking, Nash, two time. NBA Mvp. The point God of the seven seconds less Phoenix Suns will become the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. This is I think the first one since Brad, Stevens to Boston were like the news came although that came via a press release the celtics that one themselves where the news came like an earthquake with absolutely no warning no rumors know anything all the rumors moghreb Popovich a note, Steve Nash. So Steve Nash Has Minimal coaching experiences consulted team Canada. I'm not sure again this just happened I haven't looked up his exact role, a team Canada he was a consultant with the Golden State, warriors GM. You might have been the GM GM Canada. You're right. And I think clearly relevant in his consultation with the Golden State. Warriors developed a close relationship with Kevin Durant and I and they worked together in the off season a lot on various aspects of Katie's game in I interviewed. Steve Two years ago. About Kevin I wrote a big piece in the two thousand eighteen finals or so anti climactic that my big final piece was not about the finals at all it was about like what is Kevin Durant WanNa be as a basketball player like what is Kevin Durant? You Know Kevin Durant and his entire career has been. You could argue who was the quote best player on the team with the warriors not with the thunder he was clearly the best player on the thunder team but was never the lead ball handler of his team. So I wrote this sort of like, what is Kevin Durant and Steve Talk to me in depth about their relationship and about how after the warriors won the first title he and Kevin would talk about how Kevin did not fill fulfilled by. Winning that title in the way that he expected that it did not give him the fulfillment that he expected all this. So I, think that's obviously A big reason why Kevin by Steve Nash is now the coach of the nets. I mean the nets have lots of stuff to not figure out they have to superstars coming back carousel avert head. As you know like a superstar scoring run I guess in the bubble they gotTA figure out fits those guys I mean, what's your? What's this just happened? What do you think what's happening? So, one way to look at this is what is the head coach's role in two thousand and twenty, twenty one and to a great extent. Especially when you have talent like durant irving, you're in the talent management business, you're in the business of men managing relationships, empowering players the right way. Their XS and os no. By the way if there's anybody who's the personification of modern basketball, it's this guy or like everything you and I talk about every single time I'm on can in some ways be traced back to that son's team. So you're talking about a guy with an enormous. Basketball IQ and by all accounts and emotional IQ as well. So. So, that that is the case sport that that look that is the primary responsibility of the New Jersey Nets. Can you listen to me Brooklyn Nets had could they're
No Look Pass
"The NBA Wmba seasons have started back up I've only caught one game so far, but like many basketball fans I'm looking forward to the tempo and intensity. This season will brink. It's a lot more on the line. Players are bringing that to the game. Don't get me wrong. I'm looking forward to some highlights to Dunks, lobs crossovers, but is something about that. No look pass that true finesse to the gain. Some of the greatest. No look passes of all time. John Stockton Steve Nash Steph Curry Arguably. Rajon, Rondo Carl Malone. It's nothing like seeing a player in all confidence. Take that ball up the court. Drive into the paint in dish it off with a no look. Pass finished the player scores. In the NBA Dunks are expected, but is that no look pass that catches you off guard, which is why many have not mastered it. Two things have to happen at were four. No look pass to occur successfully. Fars the passer has to have foresight as to where the recipient will be. This is what makes the no look. Pass so smooth is just not the no look, but it's the no look with the understanding and awareness of where the recipient is going. The recipient must be ready. This can go either two ways. They can catch it or they don't, and they don't. is nothing short of a disappointment, because if caught ninety percent of the time is buckets. The second thing that must happen in order for the no look pass to be successful. The player has to be emotion. When you're in motion, you're not stopped or stationary. There's momentum being exerted. And, being emotion requires you to stay focused on what's in front of you while also anticipating what's coming at you and for the big man holding down the paint? This is not easy. These guys are huge six foot eight seven feet now is one thing to run the baseline, but a completely different one to run the court trail the pain, not clobbering the man in front of you while possibly anticipating a quick dish. From the point, Guard So many factors to account for in a lot of trust going on there. Is Not easy, even though it looks easy, you may be saying tiffany. How does this apply to me? I don't play basketball. You're right, but you might be working two jobs to make ends meet or staying at home, juggling the demands of your kids or carrying the load of school. Whatever it is, keep going stay emotion. God the Ultimate Point Guard sees it all in every now and then. He might throw you a no look pass. Will you be ready.
"steve nash" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"Winning, and also if it's a new story. No. Steve Nash was a new storing. He should have won. One of those M V. P s not both. Kobe won an M V. P and LeBron should have won it that year. Shack should have won it one year when Steve Nash did, but sometimes it's the story that's attached to it, and I don't know how much Credibility. Credence love that LeBron is going to get based off the story that Hey, At his age, leading the league in assists going out West, where everybody said, Well, let's see what LeBron does. When he goes out west. He went out West. They have the best team in the West. And I still think the Greek freak is going to run away with this. You know, LeBron will finish second here. I think the Greek freak is going to do double duty, I think will be the defensive player of the year as well. But this goes back to Can LeBron used this as motivation the way Jordan did. And I know here we go LeBron and Jordan, but Michael took it as a slight when Karl Malone won the M V P o You think he's the MVP? And of course, they faced the Utah Jazz in the N B a finals and we know what happened. Charles Barkley wins the M V P o You think Charles is the M V P? They faced the Phoenix Suns in the N B a finals. LeBron can get his retribution. Make it to the Western Conference finals. And then if you run into the Greek freak, that's what you do You close that other team out that guy who was the M V P, and that's what Jordan did. And those two times when he didn't win the MVP. And those guys did and met him in the N B a finals. He ended up beating him. And nobody ever took into seven games in the finals. But LeBron has had an unbelievable season. Ah, a great season considering where he was last year when his team was last year. And You know, losing Raja on Rondo and Avery Bradley is going to hurt because it's all about depth here. Patrick Beverly went back to Los Angeles family emergency here, and this is a team that might be his deep is anybody might be the deepest team. The Clippers. And if you start to lose players and when they can come back, and I know it's a long haul here because you're going to be there for a couple of months, but to be able to Have that corps with you is going to be so important for these teams. We got an update on Zion Williamson from the pelicans this morning. He's not back with the team in the bubble. They don't have a set date for when he will return, Although they expect to have more information in the coming days, he left due to a family emergency. His quarantine period and return to play status will be determined by the NBA's based on league protocol pending various factors. So something that we found out on our ago Phone calls are welcome. 8773 DP SHOW email address. DP it. Dan patrick dot com Ah, let me see Twitter handle a DP show. The Timberwolves are up for sale if anybody's got some spare change. The Minnesota Vikings owners Ziggy Wilf. I guess they're the leading candidates, according to sources telling ESPN. Glenn Taylor, the billionaire is ah set to sell. There's several bidders for the team. And it looks like Kevin Garnett is trying to form a group to purchase the team. Kevin Garnett did not get along with Lynn Taylor, and I'm sure that he would love to be able to buy that team, although I think Glenn Taylor is going to do well when he sells this team. He bought it for $88 million back in 1994. He's seeking at least 1.2 billion for team that's been valued at close to $1.4 billion. Taylor told the athletic he will not sell the team to a group that wants to move it out of Minneapolis. People have inquired who are interested, but they want to move the team..
