"Impact of a guy like Tom Thibodeau in New York. And I'd argue the second guy are another guy who's had the most impact in his first year in a team and I'm not gonna count James Harden. The other blade a long time. But besides, Thibodeau is a coach. I think Chris Paul's means extra greatest impact. You can make us a player and I mean nobody's talking about Chris Paul, which is ridiculous because they might win the West. And you know, I get back to your cage. I'm not sure why there's you know feelings that he shouldn't be When it I think what helped him what should help him in, and I said this at the time when Jamal Murray went down to that injury I'm sitting there saying all right, if anybody else doubts about yoke its yet see what Yokich does now, between the time that that your mom Marie has been lost to Denver, their second best player and where he can take this team. Have a chance to finish third. I think they're 10 and three without Jamal Murray. That should be the capper for yoga. The Robin that should be the end of the argument that he has made players better. Despite the fact that they have lost your mom or I haven't gone backwards. They have actually gotten better with a chance to get third. But overall, you know, Yokich has been, you know he's 1/4 place finish. I think a couple years ago in the M V P. I just don't think people No, we We always look at the honest Sis and the LeBron's obviously as the guys but no and Yokich plays every game. I mean, this is a season where people are talking about. Oh, my God, the MBA. It's been a ridiculous schedule on it has been a very tough schedule for players. And up Until a few weeks ago, he kept on hearing about Jo Ellan beats name They were rewarding him people for despite the fact he's missed 19 games, you're going to reward somebody this year, the league's biggest honor, the M V. P. How about how about giving a few extra points to a guy's played in every game like he has Chris Paul, by the way, who played point guard has at his age is only missed one. Me. Those guys were one too. Yeah, Look, I mean, I think the honest also has had a great year. He's not gonna get it three years in a row, but clearly it's going to be Yokich at this point in the season, so it's a gears a little bit. I had mentioned James Harden before and Mitch when the James Harden trade went down for Brooklyn. At that moment, it felt more like a luxury than a necessity. But it's clearly been More of the latter. And you look at it the Nets or 27 7 with James Harden their under 500 without him there even under 500 games where Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have played together, I think in some ways, you know hard may have saved this whole Durant Kyrie era. He may have saved those guys from a lot of criticism as well. How much do you read into what we've seen from Brooklyn? As of late and how much of that is just sort of like you can't say too much about it. Because you know that that Hardin is on the way back. Well hardens on the way back. We'll see what happens with him. Everything you've said about him in terms of the impact is true. I always felt even when they made the trade, even when he pulled in Houston. I felt the version they're going to get him. It's like, why do you need Kyrie? Irving Now you still want to have Kyrie Irving, but I've always felt that Hardin is a better player. He sets up people better, and I think that's one of the things that you're referring to. When you talk about their record is The floor is space better. He just is a better natural playmaker carries a wonderful score, and we all know he's tremendous ist as a finisher became part of the better player. I mean, James Harness an M V P Type of player and I used to think that the key for the Nets in terms of long run would be the health of Kevin Durant. I've kind of changed my mind. I mean, Kevin Durant still is the best player there when everybody is healthy. Boy, They better have James Harden because I just don't know if hardness compromised If he's diminished, Robin, what kind of run them that the Nets can make, especially because we all know it's it's all about their offense. They're not going to stop a lot of people in the playoffs. They're not built that way. They've gotten a little bit better, but really their thing is going to be there. Going to outscore people and heart is gonna have a lot to do with it. So I'm very like everybody else. I'm very interested to see how the what happens when he gets back. The other thing I'll mention to is And this will not be a small detail. Steve Nash is a rookie coach in his first playoff run. We're gonna see what kind of adjustments he makes. We're gonna see what happens on an 18 No. One running a playoff game if the Nets are unfortunate to be on the wrong end of that, if he calls time out If he ends up costing them a game. We'll see. We've never been in that pressure situation, So it's it's all in front of Brooklyn. But who knows? At this point what they're going to be able to do. It'll be interesting to see They've been the best story maybe to follow all season. Mitch Appreciate your time this morning. Have a great rest your weekend. You too, Robin. Appreciate it. Thanks. Mitch, Laurence, Sirius, XM MBA and Mad Dog. Radio. You know, I understand where he says Kevin Durant, still the best player on this. I actually think it's it's James Harden. I've been I've been swayed this year by hardens play and in his impact, But you know when you're talking about guys better are that good? It's always hard to make a pick or a decisive decision. Just like if you were trying to determine whether something is a rat, or it is a raccoon. It's very tough. Very tough, just like that's why Francisco Lynn Door of the New York Mets and his teammate McNeil got into it in the tunnel, apparently and Linda or says it was because they could not determine the identity of a creature that they said Hey, I've never seen a new your ass, so we went down sprinting. I want to go see the New York rat and he got mad at me. He's like, No, It's not a rat. Is that raccoon? I'm like Hell, no man, is that them? Rap is a New York rap man. I was just crazy because we were going back and forth debate if he was around a raccoon. On and it gets worse and it gets worse and he just doubled and tripled. Let me play you this next one. Why did all the other players rushed to see what was happening in the tunnel of the rat man? They couldn't believe. We're going.

"And Chris Mancuso from accurate, accurate basement repair on with us today. We just have, like a minute and we're pressed up against the news. But we do have a text here at 85561616 20. Simple question. I think we'll see how Chris gets into it are blocked foundations better than poured basement foundations is the question. Um, no. I would say that the black ones they're not better if they put together right there. Great. There's definitely more strength in a poured Eastern Foundation, and it's a different type of repair. If one would go bad, and they do they do like black, but most certainly, um between black or or poured. I would say a poured basement is definitely a more structurally stronger basement. For sure. I see far far less issues with they They poured Wall Foundation just because it's a It's a whole monolithic poor. It's all you know when they pour it, and there's there's a lot of more rebar and stuff in it versus all these little blocks put together, But like Chris said, you figured if a black wall is done, right I see some really old ones, and they look, they look great, but they're the ones that can go bad. Okay. Well, if you think about it, think of a puzzle. You try to pick that up versus a sheet A cardboard that's all one piece and you tried to pick that up. Which one's gonna break easier?

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.

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

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.

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.

"steve nash" Discussed on The For Real For Real Podcast

"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.

"steve nash" Discussed on First Take

"To be black would never have had this opportunity that is the bottom line and that is the point that I was making. and not to the wreck. These comments is Sean Walks Steve Nash in any way because as far as I'm concerned. They're relatively victimized in the grand scheme of things when you think of what transpired char marks has the right to hire whoever the hell he wants and Steve Nash, he would have been stupid not to take this job. It's an incredible opportunity for him and both of them class personified and I wish them nothing but the best. But my comments were not about them. It was about what the resume says how there's no centralized system in place no criteria definitively to operate under or around that would facilitate an African American be having the. Same resume getting a similar opportunity. It would not happen and for White folks and even black folks to raise up and have a problem what I said well, I have two responses for that I for White folks out there that had a problem with my comments about white privilege. Are you going to sit in denial of history? I thought you were listening I thought you were willing to listen I thought in the aftermath of George Floyd's killing that you wanted to hear folks you wanted to understand where we're coming from because you understand. That people weren't just out there protesting about police brutality they were protesting systemic racism, the inequality in the unfairness that exist as it pertains and the African American community throughout this nation's history. That's what we were talking about. That's why people have been protesting. That's why black people all over the place have come across is fed up. That's why young folks who are in the be from the white community have raised up and said, enough's enough because therefore the their forefathers and their iniquities and their actions have caused a level of stress and. Strife that the younger white generation no longer wants to have to deal with they don't WanNa have to show that burden because of their ancestors actions. So as a result of that, when you all white person and you WANNA raise up like some columnist in the New York Daily News on Sunday rights, you know Stephen a you know I missed the boat on I had the wrong spin or whatever. This man brought a Bill Russell Bill Russell being named the players coach in nineteen, sixty six. That was his arguments when he came back. As a retort to what I was saying he came back with something from nineteen sixty six. The reality is, is that if you are White And you swear that you're listening, you're hearing you should have problem with what I said. You should appreciate the fact that I said it because I'm articulating a point of view and opposition most black people wouldn't even think about denying and for those black folks like Charles Barkley and others who had a problem with what I said if you listen to what people said, they were too busy thinking about Steve Nash because we like Steve Nash, he's a great guy a good man who I believe is going to do an exceptional job in Brooklyn and I can understand why anybody would want to play for him because he seems to be a play his coach I know a guy by the. Name of Bill Duffy one the exceptional agents in this business who I've known for many years who represented Steve Nash All these years who swears by him not just as a talent but as a man, but the bottom line is that love the Steve Nash is what gives people the resistance towards what I had to say because they don't feel it's fair for me to bring something like that up because he was hired and my response to that is if not him who who else got hired for prestige job like this would resume. So it's really not about Steve Nash about the system and it's about pointing out how it's unequal because what happened for him? What happened for a white guy? Even, if they wasn't Steve Nash would never happen. For a black man and I spoke to somebody last night Max I'll hand it off to you. I spoke to the Great Jerry Colangelo as well because obviously he disagreed with my position than I have such respect for him that I took the of calling him to make sure he understood my arguments were not against Steve National Sean Marks as people and Jerry. Colangelo to his credit was making the statement that I understand where you're coming from Stephen. I'm just saying that white privilege is not the reason Steve. Nash. Got This job, and I said fair enough. But my position is no black man would that resume we'll get that job I said it last week a set at the other day I'm saying that now I've been saying for a quarter century in this business and I will never change my position on that matter until the facts show me otherwise, which has yet to happen. Well, let me black men in this country. Let me try and give you some facts in that case even because we disagree about this and I think it's fair to say that your larger point. Seven head coaching jobs available in this off season when you count the Nixon the nets already filled by white guys, right. So five more jobs if you look in your like five white guys in two black guys head coach something's wrong and even if in each individual case, it makes sense hold on. Let's step back and see the big picture on that you and I agree and a Lotta. Times. White people hear this argument they go in this case and they want to kind of micro focus on let's say Steve Nash in this case to prove that no, that's not what's going on. That's not what I'm doing I disagree with your analysis here. About Nash when he jumped alive, he saying point guards as tweeted out when this first happened point guards in modern MBA history jump right into head coaching jobs right that goes for. Mark Jackson and Jason Kidd and many others. Actually I have a list in front of me. Well, Isaiah Thomas with the Pacers. Steve Kerr who's a white guy but A. Point Guard shooting guard kind of guy who jumped right into a head coaching position you could say, well, Look Mark Jackson jumped into the same jobs Steve. Kerr did when it was a development job when it became a Glamor job than the White Guy got it. There's no perfect set of circumstances that will allow us to analyze this perfectly, but bottom line is. There's like A. Job Right you could argue the nets job is more glamorous than the phillies. The sixers job I'm not sure about that I. Don't know about that K. D. if he comes back as eighty percent of his former selves, which is ambitious right? That's optimistic. Usually that injury that the guy's never the same if he does Kyri who's not been able to make team greater than the sum of its parts. K. D. as a compromise version of himself. If he thought of mistake Paul George is Kyrie Paul George would that that automatically a championship team I don't know the Philly job may actually be better likely to go to tie. Lou right like it's the worst kept secret in basketball. Now you could argue well, tie lose not a first year coach that's legitimate that part is UNKNOWABLE. But I think if you look at the number of coaches including, African American coaches who were successful point guards jumped right into head coaching jobs you'll see many of them are African American. In this case Steve Nash had a relationship with K. d. they got along really well Katie said, it's his team obviously, Katie said that that I think he he was like the best basketball mind I've been around not among the best. He said the best now Chauncey billips looks like he might get the Indiana job. You mean to tell me Stephen Thought experiment just for you if Steve Nash were instead Chauncey billips and Katie got along with Chauncey billips that way you mean to tell me the next wooden. John. Phillips I think they probably would have. So in this case, although I understand appreciate your broader point, it's not 'cause I like Steve Nash. It's not because I. Don't appreciate the fact that the nets is a better job than some development job. I do appreciate that back. I Steve Nash were an African American coach under the same circumstances or former point guard who had that relationship with K. D..

"It goes without saying they know they don't even need organization to do I'm going to surround myself with experience. What were he got my leaders? Assistant. Jaguar. Nagai was GONNA head coach in two different locations and cut his teeth. San. Antonio. And and is. A Good Dude well-known dude to to everyone in the organization players management and Steve as well. So continue to flesh out that Rosser with people that compliment what you do the same way. That's Steve Kerr when he got the job when it got Alvin Gentry. Adams he got due to a been there before been around. Any also got young guys who could do because I. think it's increasingly important for every coaching staff to have guys who can get on the floor and do stuff. Obviously Steve can too but you need a guy probably that helps as well. So He's GonNa do that to me the biggest. pitfall but. The biggest threat to success would be the Steve WanNa do this. Everything that makes him perfect with his job also to me is. Look. Do you are you gonNa to do this after ten day road trips? Are you GONNA WANNA? Do this when you're home but you're not really home the big family guy right and he's got young kids in the house. Does. He want to keep doing this when You know his youngest. Only sees dad like for an hour. A day when he's around and days on end when he doesn't see him. Is He gonNA, WanNa do this. When he's got a deal with all these other kind of small minutia that aren't necessarily win or lose type of impactful things. But just things that graded annoy you write the day to day grind right? Steve is not Tomko. My Life is basketball who am I without basketball he can do anything. He wants this dude, a part owner, soccer club and. Enjoys filmmaking east. Got Interest. Do Go skateboarding he. Said devoted daddy's got the charity soccer tournament that he does every year. This any anything he doesn't want to do. It reminds Steve Kerr when he quit at the sons. Turner make more, money. And like have my summers. Back. Right. Like that's a that's a very real thing. Now, I'm not saying I'M NOT HERE TO QUESTION Steve Nashes devotion I'm just saying. When you're someone who has a life? Giving this up eight that heart it ain't. Heart. In. A way that assholes like me, I've got nothing life. This I believe me I. loved it. But you know, I don't know I. Don't know if I'm capable I don't know of I'm equipped to do that. Now. Having said that that's the very same reason why I think he's going to be great. Because the two stars he's gotten, you know how to remind you. We just talked about the stars ain't happy. Fuck everything else right. So the two star he's got our guys who think of themselves as bigger than athletes I'm not just the basketball player don't put me in that box. I, am a deep. Introspective I care about the environment and social issues and and entrepreneurship and all these things right I'm not here to question the validity or the depth of devotion of I'm telling you. That's what they think of themselves. and. So you can't bring in someone who's rah-rah basketball basketball eat sleep. You gotta bring in someone who speaks that language of the world is bigger than this this ball. This ball is a vehicle, not the destination, right? Woo better than Steve Nash who are the candidates that people name give you renaissance man like Steve Nash Right. In a way that those guys not only respect it in terms of. You speak my language. But also who are you a former Tucson MVP you? Right like it's not to see he's got the attitude and the understanding he's also got the the resume. Look you at question my basketball Iq I did it at six to one hundred and eighty pounds. And did it twice right so from that standpoint. Those guys are GonNa be willing to listen in a way that they may not be willing to listen to other guys either because our approach isn't quite the right approach or because they just don't bring the. The juice that this guy brings and this is not to say that Steve Nash doesn't have the basketball game because he obviously has basketball acumen you know up to his eyeballs and beyond like he's he's a smart about the game as as you're GONNA have. But one of the things I always tried to explain to fans or emphasizing these discussions is that. The communication the ability to relate to guys the ability to. Just. Make, everybody, feel part of something the way that we see. Steve Kerr do the way we see all the great coaches do doc rivers has has. That charisma about. Him. You have to have something. It's more than just the XS and Os and Steve Actually think we'll have all that but it is your playbook. I think is less important than your ability to connect and you just hit on the head. I mean the fact that he is a guy who has that balance who, who, and who stresses the importance of all that balance that will appeal to durant and Kyrie I think probably appeal to anybody frankly. But especially to them and I and I think that connection the ability to speak their language too because you only get by and if they trust you and they can trust your credentials, they can trust your mvp awards everything else but they also have to trust your judgment and your overall your sales pitch and the way you connect with them and so yeah, I think that I think he fits perfectly with them.

"Number one most player friendly and I, think. It's not that surprising that guys like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving who do want exert a lot of influence would would go that direction I feel like they're looking at this like, Hey, we got a really really overqualified substitute teacher. You know this guy has got like a PhD basketball and he's just slumming it as a substitute teacher in high school, and now we can kinda. We want every once in a while we can check in with them and that'll be good. But now we run the show. Is that a good thing though Ben like to have. Not I've been out on the next. Then Julia ever bought a single thing about the nets but I do think that it's better to go this direction then like Mark Jackson right or you can make a case for Steve Nash even over a tie Lou and it sounds like lose got a lot of other teams looking after him I mean ultimately, you do want to kind of put your your imprint on it so I could see a level of fit here I don't think that they're going to win a title but I don't think there's any coach in the world that was gonNA coach these guys to a title. Well. If that's the case, then guess we can just move on the conversation but like you know I think about, I, think about player friendly coaches quote unquote and Steve Kerr kind of had that moniker coming into the Golden State job. And you know as we we've seen over the past How ever many year would five years six years he's been there. Like he's ruffled, a I should say he's bumped heads with draymond green on numerous occasions to the point where you know there's been reported. Line a fisticuffs in the locker room at halftime of televised game in Oklahoma City. So like Steve Kirk can get fiery. I. Think Fire is always good I think pushing players as good and so I'm just a little concerned with. You know when the players are kind of running the show, which may be shocked says a relationship with Steve Nash. She supposedly was also all for this and it's a really good idea share If the players are all for this, like how are the players going to feel once you Steve Nash actually has to put on his coach hat when they go through some adversity and they don't like it the players like it I think that that's going to be really interesting to see and. I. The Kirk comparison is interesting because he was seen as player friendly but we also know he's like ruthlessly competitive, right? Yes. Same deal with Steve Nash Part actually does check out and when Nash was working for the Warriors, he made a comment Zach Lowe at espn of saying something along the lines of that. Kevin Durant had a tough summer after the first title because he thought that that was going to change his entire life and it just didn't and he wasn't feeling quote unquote fulfilled. In that particular moment in there, you can kind of imagine Nash and Katie like a workout gym some somewhere in the Summer Katie's pouring his heart out to him and telling him things. Maybe he wouldn't say directly Steve Kerr because there's no chain of command there. Nash has no dog in the fight..

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.

"And the reason why she was found was because she was a strong devout Christian woman who had an incredible amount of faith and this innate belief that there was a better place than here wants everything in the physical was over. and. Because of that, there was a comfort level that she had molly where she was saying listen I. Know You're GonNa be sad but you strong I raised you to be strong. You'll be fine and I'll be fine because God is going to take care of me and that was her belief and the reason why bring that up is because as kirk cousins talking and we recognize that he is a man of faith. Max, as you articulated. Also think it's important to understand where you're dealing with this virus. You we've gotten to a point in our society where obviously the fears are very possible in real. We're anything out of you might catch it and you have no idea how you acquired it right and so you get to a point where whatever's going to happen is going to happen. You're not saying it to be nonchalant careless and dismissive of other people's fears what you're saying is. All I can do is all I can do here I am, and if this is how it's going to go down for me, then you know what I think God's on my side, and if he decides to take me away from this, so be it not a reason why I think that's important to appreciate is because we have so many people in this world who claim to be so devoutly religious. And have such a strong belief in a higher self yet they're absolutely petrified of death and that's not something we're encouraged to feel as human beings with the spirit and the soul inevitably is going to happen like for me. My fear is how I go out my fears how do I WANNA die violently I don't WanNa die in excruciating pain I don't want to die in a very vicious inviolate fashion. But I do have a of fearlessness as it pertains to when God calls me to come home. He's called me to come home. And if somebody has that mentality recant excoriate them for feeling that we have to respect the fact that they have a right to while still acknowledging Max's point is not just about you. It's about other people. So be careful what you say and how you disseminated kirk cousins because one thing to say I believe that I'm going to the better place I'm not scared. There's another thing to come across as if you're not really concerned about the virus because it will give somebody else a reason to be a bit lackadaisical and nonchalant about, and we certainly don't want that and that's what I wanted to say. Can I say yeah. I, wanted to go ahead. Yeah. I WANNA say masks. Don, let me just go ahead here I appreciate everything you all said guys and I think you know me well enough that a reasonable person and I can understand multiple perspectives but I'm also very passionate person and Steven you can stop me at any time if I'm speaking out of turn but I know you received a reward an award recently and that was associated with the Dickie V.. Foundation and I actually the intro about you and about your story with your mother, I've had the pleasure of meeting your family and one thing I know for a fact is that how hard she fought? So I understand her being a woman faith when God calls me home, I get that I have that same perspective, but she still thought her behind off year after year. So in terms of we're talking about also. Yes God also wants you to value your life at the same time and we do also have free will. So I do understand where Kirk is coming from I just found them his comments a bit ignorant in a bit insensitive. So that was hard for me to hear and I think as somebody that has black and Brown family who have been more affected by this. So maybe I'm more sensitive to it than other people and then also were in the. Television business and Steven I talk about this with you all the time both of you are brilliant. You're so talented and it's an honor to work with both view I mean some people after of this virus brain fog, recall their not as sharp that could affect our ability to do our job. So do I walk around paranoid? No, but in the back of my mind yeah. Yeah I'm a bit scared because it can react differently to all different people and. So, that's why I guess if I if I sound a little bit worse or sensitive. I would that backstory and then and then obviously seeing seeing my grandmother in us not being able to be with her it's hard. The virus it's it's really like ravaging our society. It's devastating. So I appreciate that he walked back and he apologized but yeah, when I first heard it. I was really hurt by his comments, Max? I think of when you hear something like this, it comes to mind that kirk cousins played golf with trump that that from the beginning this has been a this administration has politicized the pandemic and hampered the CDC in the middle of a global pandemic that what we have to two hundred, thousand American deaths yet from this pandemic, and so when people hear this particularly when faith is attached to it. They can hear it as being influenced politically because the president has messaged to. Sell portions of the religious community. About this sort of thing, and about how we you know the survival of the fittest we've heard the certain keywords. In this case, I don't see it that way. I don't see this as a politicized kirk cousins talking about it. I really did see it as or hear it as him speaking from his own point of view about his own health as a man of faith and I appreciate his clarification afterwards. Molly on a lighter note on a lighter note on a lighter note, I'll close this segment with a lighter note I don't think. Would take seriously the president talking about survival of the fittest. Did, you know GEICO's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies? That's fifteen percent on top of what Geico could already save you. So what are you waiting for your dentist to actually believe you and your flat day? Absolutely great and you're cutting down your sweet. So of course wonderful. Then I don't even need to look in their great see in six months.

"The rockets get it done in game seven knocking. Okay. See Advance to face the Lakers and the semi's. That's GONNA. Be Fun. Chris. Paul was emotional post game rightfully. So getting sent home by former team take less. Tough. We. All heart all year. Obviously a lot of people doubters, but weedon down ourselves. we didn't give a damn about anybody's predictions going in any series. In any game we expected to win. and. That's the way we play all season long every game we expected to win. And so Yes Sir and tougher. Hard to see Chris Paul hurting like that such a good guy plays so hard Max I want to focus on Houston here now though, because obviously they're the ones that are advancing to take on the Lakers, how do you feel about this rocket team? I feel like, James. Harden's reputation was on the line at the end of that game and he saved it. Are you kidding me in game seven a game seven in the first round where you're playing the team we're your number two Guy Russell Westbrook was swapped for the other Guy Star Chris Paul. Chris Paul get along and the whole on everyone's talking about it. I know I may be the most vocal about it but everyone knows it James. Harden Chokes under pressure consistently in his career what does that mean it means whatever level he sets normally he plays under that level consistently wet means most and little by little he was making strides he'd have more games than bad Some MVP level games in the playoffs but then alternately, he's dribbling the ball office foot. He's looking for a call and jumping under draymond green legs. Instead of hitting a shot, there are many examples of in the biggest moments under the most pressure he folds and last night. I mean, are you kidding me a twenty year? Old unsigned rookie is giving you that work on both ends of the floor in a game seven. Giving you. Can't get for thirty and shutting you down with his defense. You have no offense going 'cause a twenty year old undrafted player. Is giving you them business. I was watching this like don't do it because I have to come out here the next day and tell the truth and say that's it that. Making a final nail, but it's another nail in the coffin of James Harden's postseason reputation. First Round exit behind getting behind a twenty year old undrafted, eating your lunch on both ends of the floor. In a series like this. and. Then with that last play, that's something James. Harden has done when his offense wasn't working the plows. He started playoffs couple of years ago we started really focusing on his defense. And he did it again, he saved the game and then they have the presence of mind when door try to throw the ball off sorta go out of bounds and he jumps up in the ball misses him. That was clutch play from James Harden and Stephen a Smith at not only saved the rockets season it's saved James Harden's reputation. Well a couple of things number one I don't get caught up in you know I I've never been one to believe. They're quote unquote he choked, but I will confess to you and I text you last night I was like Oh my God because if this do if they lose this game with the way James Harden this playing Max I got nothing to say you I I literally text you. You know that text last night I, like I I can't say anything because that was bad. That was horrible. Horrible offense offensive. That's right. We talked we text during and after the game I said that is a horrible horrible performance. I will have absolutely nothing to say Max I would literally sit up here and recline my gear and not say a word because I could if he had not made. That made that defensive play, the same the game, and they had lost this game. There's no way he could recover from that because that's how bad he was offensively, that is true. I'm not going to hold them accountable for what Lou did ostensibly because it wasn't like he was gonNA remember most of this guy shots open because he's built like a linebacker plays defense like the live back and most. Of the time has been had been left open to shoot because they didn't want Chris Paul, shooting they didn't want to kill just Alexander shooting data want straight shooting. So as a result, you let them open from the outside because he's really primarily there because he such lewd I'm talking about because he's such a physical specimen built like a linebacker really bodies you up gets physical with you and the Dude Out of his mind last night that kid deserves a lot of props water performance by him I. Wish I could say the same for Danilo. Gallinari just didn't show up but I'm no surprise. The always reminds me why the Nixon have a problem trading him up in the case of Houston. Here's the bottom line. When you look at them right now this is what I walked away from his that's not going to beat the Lakers. Play like that Russell Westbrook has some great great moments in the game and redeemed himself from game six without question. But we've seen him be more spectacular than that. Of course, James Hardie was awful offensively we don't anticipate the data going to happen again, not that bad. But the bottom line is you just looked at the Houston, rockets and guess what the the game deserve to be Elston Turner demand is running your defense for you because Houston was making stops when necessary we gotta whole Chris Paul Accountable to some degree because a sensational he was as he was in game six particularly eclipse situations wasn't there for him last night probably because he was gassed as the game Wayne almost turn the ball over to Russell Westbrook on. That last play the ultimately check you'll just swung the ball over the door and it had shot blocked by James. Harden but Chris. Paul almost turned that ball over. He missed a Gimme in the lane of a couple of possessions earlier that would have given them a lead put even more pressure on the Houston but in the end okay. See clearly overachieved we give props in respects to them for giving us such a great series and plan so hard and wanting it so bad. But in the end, we all wanted to see James Harden and Russell Westbrook against Lebron James and the crew but I'll tell you this much. I Want James Harden and Russell Westbrook to be who we know. They can be because anything less or something along these lines they they will be home and five and five Robert Covington by the way a lot of Proxima how he played. All right. Every Gordon, lot of props for how he played as well. Those brothers showed up and play their game Russell Westbrook improved exponentially from game six James Harden just. Disappeared offensively but made the play of game on defense and give him props for that because there are more than one, there's more than one way to skin a cat as they say dow fact, he showed up on the defensive end. He deserves a lot of credit for showing up and not leaning on strictly his office to get the job done. He's shown me today that was on the board highest leverage. That was the highest leverage moment of the game but I don't care he played poorly throughout the game. He played great throughout this series and his presence of my not only to block the shot but to jump. So the ball missed them when when he threw it out of that was a great clutch play and it saves the season great work from James Harden Over two point, three million people are in jail and prison today black Americans make up forty percent of those incarcerated despite making up only thirteen percent of US residents. This is not an accident. It's a consequence.

"Time Stephen A. Where I agree that optics are important and that you want to increase the number of. Black Hires at the coaching level and with people say, well, why not just the best man for the job at that? In a league that's that's way more than fifty percent African. American. Why would the presumption be that more than fifty percent of the best candidates for the job of coaching jobs aren't African American. So I get all of that. I wouldn't. I. Wouldn't give a four year contract is interesting to me. They gave him a lot of security. There's they're saying like this is not like looking over your shoulder kind of thing you go a four year contract raise my eyebrows but the hiring of Steve Nash because it's Katie team I understand. Well, I'm not going to sweat the four years. The reason why because Steve Kerr got five years when he got to go to state job and Derek Fisher got five years from the New York ducks and resurrection. I'm not going to sweat that. That's number one but number two here's the bottom line Max Kellerman. You know what? When we bring up black management we know most of the managers you most general magic president of basketball operations are white. Okay. We get all of that. We also know every own about Michael Jordan is white. So now we get to the head coach of ranks because when you go to GM president of basketball operations, there are nine blacks in those positions officially, but only one out of the nine has complete and final say and that would be Messiah. Jazzy. Do Coaches in another country, which is Canada. He's he coaches in another country you ain't in America. Okay. We all love massage. Gone in the sample. Max We know that the shining example that he has said, you would think that would be impetus for him to call the shots but that is simply not the case we know that Joe Dumars back in Sacramento now. But how many years did it take for him to get back in the mix and we don't know if he's going to have final say the man only went to six straight conference finals but to back to back NBA Finals one an NBA. Championship, it could by job and so I look at it from that perspective and then I think about the qualifications of the people on the market and I'm thinking about the fact that Steve Kerr's Grazie isn't he is phenomenal. It was helped by the fact that a foundation was set for him and he inherited Klay Thompson and Steph curry the greatest shooting back court known to man as far as I'm concerned, and now here we off its K. D. Kyri it's K. D. A. Kyw Ray. And a coach that really has never been on the bench is their new head coach and again is hard because if you do your homework Steve Nash here's an outlier. This is a special brother. He's a special person. He's a good do he's highly knowledgeable his accu on basketball is off the charts I have no doubt whether it's Popovich whether it's Dan Tony whether it's the Kerr anybody else he'll have recommendations out the WAZOO I am not questioning Steve Nash major props to him I wish nothing but the best and I do believe he will be successful in Brooklyn I'm just saying that right now we're all this stuff that's happening. With the black candidates out there that actually have resumes and you've got to stars in Cari urban and D. who assures you as a coach you will win games you may or may not win the championship we'll find out but they lose it gets this job is automatically good for about fifty win season to have that kind of situation and to have qualified black coaches and to not have them in those positions. It just resonates with me because everytime a black coach Gets Damn Job we get Joan teams they stink you gotTa build something or whatever. But when you build it like more Jackson your end up going okay or tire. Building we don't need you anymore. Yeah. That's stuff man you're right about rx man in right about Mars Jack such a good do. You're right about Mark Jackson building something special Golden State. But the fact remains they took a quantum leap forward in terms of their offense when Steve Kerr got there, it is unclear to me that they ever win a championship with Mark Jackson maybe it would have happened but not with the offense as it was and with Steve Kerr they started they really became a Juggernaut the point if you look back and say was that the right thing do in retrospect I was arguing wasn't what are you doing Mark Jackson or back then I was talking to in retrospect yes it seems to me they made the right decision and this may also prove to be the right decision.

"The development of Amari Stoudamire and how he? Elevated Amari. The joke was always think of all the guys who got paid contracts. WHO Steve. he didn't. Whether it was in Phoenix Jason Kidd in Brooklyn or in New Jersey the that that there was this something about that elite. Next Level Point Guard That day in day out. Really, did coach the group was it just as different with him is anybody who had been around? Absolutely everyone you get to that level of relief point, God's that's that's what they're known for making everybody bid and without a doubt stay was the head of the snake in Phoenix. Again. Had that incredible humility and the empathy for the entire group and was able to bring together and that's that's what he did. Their bigs. In he'll do the same same here with US yeah. Hey. Guys Goodyear believes that movement drives US forward that every mile travel brings us one step closer to our goals. But good you're also believes in the importance of arrest up and taking a breather to pause and reflect on the road at sometimes that's all we need to keep going a moment to compose ourselves before we start moving forward again. So as you get ready to start moving again, good years here to help visit goodyear dot com to learn more goodyear more driven shot. How much background have you done in sort of picking the brain? Others who have hired a head coach without coaching experience and how they put stabs around and how they supported him. was ready were you familiar like some intimate knowledge of some other situations? Have you gone out? During this and talk with people about that or is that something you do now once you get Steve on board. It's a combination of both obviously with a higher like this wasn't something that we were. To be didn't have the time to be running out there and doing a whole bunch of background on first time head coaches and so forth. I think it really. Relationship, with Steve Over. The. Years. Was a strong factor there. But. I think now it'll be up to Steve Steven Sean, the curiosity and the humiliation. To WanNA, reach out to to May these coaches who have found themselves in as a first time. See you know in that front a so he'll be reaching out time speaker I. Mean, that's a proven example, but you know he's not the first player and won't be the last flat to to Jump Straight into coaching at at at the highest level and I think we've seen. Numerous. Guys have a lot of success in it'll be up to us to now. Surround him with the right personnel off the court. But in his boss will I Q is off the charts and what makes him specialists is issue which are people gravitate to? Sean. So when the job opened, it was Steve who reached out to you and said Hey I think I might be ready to do this is that how it initially played out? Basically Yeah I mean we've had conversations again. Dating back years and years now because we're, we are close friends. and. We've picked each other's brains on a Lotta different scenarios. And not just honest to be as much as coaching However, this sweet, we always do together planets aligned with the families and so forth in this one, this one natural. It was certainly not fullest and and again, there was a different town was Steve I've seen since the last. Week or two this really. His approach pickup in his preparation. So this Has Been. Pretty impressive to be honest whereas he he's giving this is Biz shot and I think we do here but I think when he's willing to sacrifice you know some. Little livelihood that he has already and said look I, WanNa Drummer Heather here I want to give us a shop and I know what's Stike? No they'll be naysayers and so forth but. He's got our utmost support here with us. Shot, how important was it for you to be able? To put Stephen Place and then be able to keep Jacques von at the top of his coaching staff. Extremely important. I. Love the continuity that we have with with. Jacques Stein implies but I will say this, this is not only was it important to me but it was it was more to see. This was WANNA Steve's of I. Requirements of the job. I want to do it but I have seen how Jacques Coaches. You know I I know the person. Alec. Ford him knowing bidder. So that was lousy, just as much west Divas was as was myself and I think when you've got a good group and you know, we know we have a good tandem here it's going to be fun to watch those guys communicate in in container grows as a as a team. kyrie irving there probably isn't a pair of his in the League now who plays the position as creatively as he does as innovatively as he does. And S Steve Nash is certainly somebody who evolved the position changed it and. I wonder in your conversations with Kyrie, just his his intrigue with being able to. Maybe have kind of the high high level conversations and having a head coach who really understands. What it means to play that position the level. kyw replays at. One hundred percent right I think I look forward to I obviously won't be privy to all those conversations but I look forward to hearing or at least. Both Stephen Kyri. Get together and and really talk about law things and to be honest I think a lot of those things are not even on the court I. Mean they'll obviously share a lot of boscell experiences.

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.

Could a basketball team made up of Nigerians? An all time basketball team made up of Nigerians be the greatest basketball time and then I ended it. I amended until as I said all right I have to corollaries one is. I'm going to add west Indians because almost Indians not all mostly I'm Jamaican. Where am I what am I people from? We're from originally like I'm Ibo right most Jamaicans cable so I add the Caribbean and then I said and just refund. That's also add the rest of Southern Africa and then I construct the students. Tony Ridiculous Caribbean so busy. I say out can Africa and the Caribbean put together an all time team. It's better than an african-american team a euro team at a white American team. It's the third one. Maybe not. The answer is yes. We don't have time to do this but I will convince you. I can't convince you to Africa and the Caribbean in basketball. All Time team and also your co you qualify by or Nigeria. Will I started? I start with all of ethnic did not all? I'm only adding. I added Southern Africa. 'cause I WANNA have Steve Nash and Joel Embiid on my team. Wade Steve Nash. Born in Johannesburg. He's Canadian. No my rule is that you. Are you qualify? Virtue of your parents. Place a birth. So get all of Steve. Nash Who Play Thompson. Really? He's Bamyan are are are taking. Tim. Duncan Tim Duncan Hang Hau Kim Elijah Akeem Joel Embiid Yoenis Clay Andre iggy Dow Victor Depot Drink Igwe Dolla. Where's he from Nigeria okay? He's full on your deal and Steve.

This team is insane when Patrick's coming off the bench. But how just doesn't matter but Kim Jaanus and but sure but but the other team has Lebron Kobe. Japan Michael I know. Just for starters and Steph curry just restarting Potanin Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. Just just try go ahead. That's the African American teachers. Try Playing Lebron Jordan. Notice what we doing that thing ooh together. Thomas can't come in and Magic Johnson coming in. Can I read this out rushing your your appetite? Engineer Crushes Team Sport Play. You cannot Jordan Jordan and abroad and Kobe on the court at the same time out of your mind. You have all centers you have one forward you have you have guards and a bunch of centers.

Dr. Marc Bubbs on Gut-Biomes, Phone-Vacations, Sleep and a Human First Perspective to Athletic Performance

"Thanks for having me on the performance usually with Canada basketball and work as a consultant as well so if the lead sport and also with recreational clients looking improve their performance and you know my background and nutrition also naturopathic medicine so bringing a bit of a holistic view on an athlete health and human health in terms of performance. And and that's pretty much the philosophy leeann anywhere from people trying to look better feel better all the way up to you know a lot of our guys obviously play in the NBA and people got into the Olympics. And I'm always amazed at how similarities like the problems. We're having a highest level. Could actually be quite similar to the problems. The rest of us are having your trying to perform at work and at home. So there's a lot of similarities but of course definitely differences as well. The answer that that answer kind of takes me to the first question I had for. You is the idea of fitness versus health. And I think we hear that sometimes the sense of someone who looks fit in the gym might not necessarily be healthy or vice versa. And so what's for the for a high performance perspective? Those of us who work with athletes like what's I maybe. It's not a point but is what's that point were poor health really starts to spill over into performance. I mean does it start from square. One does after hit a critical mass in anything. It's probably complex question but what What would be a good would be a good indicator of that that crossover between health and performance or health? It's a fascinating question right. Because we assume the two are are are so intertwined and swearing fitnesses. Obviously the ability form of physical task helping state of well being and they do travel together to a certain degree but then when we really just the tip of the spear they start to veer off and grey paper. Maybe three or four years ago. Now by Paul Larson film off its own. Athletes fit but not healthy and of course. The endurance crowd is is definitely one that the interns athletes are ones that tend to experience that more than than even others right. Kassir pushing the volume. They're pushing the intensity and so this notion around you over training being just a person who's unhealthy right and so from a high performance standpoint. I mean I think when we look at some of the research around again. This is more than the endurance side but international the national level competitors. We see that international competitors get sick forty percent less than national level competitors if you can just show up every day in the gym or every day of practice and not miss days at the end of that year or that block of four years and you're going to be that much further ahead in the competition and so I think it's pretty cool now that we see this athlete health component. You know the skewing first idea being more intertwined with different performance models and you know on the female side of things again on the endurance with endurance sport. We used to just be part and parcel it if you're elite female endurance athlete. You GONNA lose menzies. And that's just part of the part of the story and of course China with experts like Dr Susan Kleiner. You know new new research coming out showing that women who maintain menstrual function which again is sort of a proxy for health right actually performing better as some of these lead levels and so whole notion that if we can keep athletes healthy particularly in you know team sports like forcing basketball or you know what we would call soccer but most the world calls Football Ohio you have. These athletes were so skilled. You know if you if you can get a forty four inch vertical leap and you're the fastest guy in the floor you know. Do we really need all of the things that has just keeping you healthy enough to show up every day. Probably the biggest performance lever. So those are some of the things that you hear being discussed more now and I think it's It's been interesting in practice to be able to see what are some of the less direct things that we can improve someone's performance by just supporting these areas of health. Then allow them to just be them and show up and do the amazing things that they can do. The I really really like that Thought with the showing up in the consistency and the stats behind that and I had a couple of thoughts was just with distance runners in general. I. I always had heard the idea. I think Dan John Coach. Dan John it said something like this. If you go to a masters track meet. The spinners look ten years younger than they really are. And the distance runners look ten years old and it was It was tough one. I always I always like okay. That does seem about right. I guess like it could make sense but then I was. It was like Dr Bruce Lipton stuff and he was talking about DNA. Telomeres and repetitive tasks. Like if the task is alter repetitive eight does something to aid your telomeres. Faster and mccaw. Maybe this is why I don't know I mean I don't want to speak for everybody. Necessarily they're probably becomes that point. We're distance rains good and then turns into too much and maybe trails versus roads or diversity. This is an interesting area to me. Yeah no I think it's really interesting as well. I think as a heuristic kind of works too because you do tend to see that. I think there's a few areas like obviously training outside if you trained in the sun and you live in California Arizona. You're getting all that happens. The skin which can impact but I think the glucose aspect is a really interesting one because we know that if you're not perform on race day as elite endurance athlete you do need a significant amount of carbohydrate and month after month year after year depending on what kind of strategy you're using. I mean that's GonNa those dance to glaciated. End Products are going to start to lead to more more impact the skin. So if you're if you're more focused on how the skin is looking you may want to adopt certain strategies and maybe sacrifice performance would. I don't know if that's a conversation for the pocket. Yeah yeah that'd be the on the very specific on subserve running podcast and looking good or not aging age or something like that I the second thought I had from what you're saying. I love that idea of consistency. I think it's something that we don't we don't necessarily think of like it's not very sexy to be like well you know. Show up and do that as long as possible. I think that when especially elite athletes and I've had talks other talks with coaches on this podcast about some. There's some elite athletes who just have a really bad diet but the question is then right. How long this catches up with you. At what age is going to catch up with yours. What what ages are going to start costing you. I guess that's my My follow up to that is how do athletes with a really poor diet and who are getting away with it and early. Twenty s are these things showing up later is different for everybody What's your take on all that? I mean it's one we see. You know you see sports now like Roger Federer. When he started to thirty four thirty five he started to lose. Some of those majors look like this for him. And of course all of a sudden at thirty six thirty seven. He starts winning majors again. Australian opens repeats and then Wimbledon. Geez guys now thirty seven thirty eight thirty nine you still the top four in the world. I mean he wins. The I guess to the quarter finals of tournaments was still almost the same ease as he did when he was in his mid twenties and that from a generation ago. I mean no when I was growing up north thirty in your tennis player. Men that the drop office was. Pretty Sean Right. So I think a lot of the science around nutrition Sleep obviously recovery. Obviously things like training. I think that's flat curve a little bit and allowed a lot of these athletes to be able to to play a lot longer. I mean you know candidate Basketball Steve. Nash I mean he played until he was forty and he had a back condition. You know I mean that's just playing a point guard position in the NBA is phenomenal. And so I think that's where the buying can be difficult for young athletes because you know nowadays are nineteen or twenty into the League. You know when you're that age you're indestructible right. You're not thinking you're thirty. Everything's just feels great. You can get away with everything and so I think that's one having an environment where people are just making certain decisions Really helps because environment too powerful influence from

"steve nash" Discussed on Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles

"You rank these kids like the the top four upgraded may never play basketball when he turns eighth grade he may decide to play soccer? Not even be in sports anything like I say. What do you think of that? When you see all these these kids with Hughes followings and their own ball is life and all is cool but I think is is kind of a gift and the curse one hundred percent I think for better for worse I it is what it is? We're not. We're not going back right so you can't. You can't like long for the way we grew Avonex so like you have to accept it then then you just try to like. How can we find balance here and I would say? The positive thing is like exposure kids get exposure. There's no secrets anymore. Everyone it's like when I grow up I would love to know what a kid in Chicago is doing how what is what's his moved. What's his game levels yet? In eight nine ten eleven twelve th grade that is cool that the world smaller kid in any corner of the world can see what the best in his age is doing. So there's a lot of great things about it and the exposure and the best practice I don't like the fact that we rank kits you can scout and you can say this is. I don't even mind like if you put it in a little more blunt like he's a five star he's a blue chip okay but like wanted river rats one hundred. I think kids lose sight of a long term and their development because they were they were am. I ranked this week this week does it. It's I tell my girls. My daughters play volleyball. They don't love it and like it. It could be pretty good at it. They think they're bad and I'm like that's a terrible like you have no. It does not matter who's best at fourteen if you ask asked me where I fit in the world ranking basketball when I was fourteen so no ranking right. We're talking thousands right so like don't get caught up. been where you are this week. There's even like your senior year. Just keep going keep going keep going so i. I don't like that kids get so focused in on where the ranking yes and that competitive nature of a ranking. That means nothing. There's no reward. What are you get you don't get an NBA championship in the fifth? Best in the country and fourteen. You don't get anything so I don't like that I. I'd like to see kids. Think about their long-term development likes right so CIA. Don't be influenced by likes what other people like the influence followers you have influenced by what is making you better every day and frankly lake back then as you don't need to share with everyone like focus. Canada is bringing up a lot of players to the NBA bone out of players to call it. It might to see you growing up in Canada. The see how is develop. These kids can come out Accounta- and do they think you've got the Andrew Wiggins all these guys who make it to the Lee. How did it feel? It's incredible I never ever thought it would be like this. I think I think candid announce the second most NBA players in the world the US. I think this going into this year. I think there's fifteen guaranteed contracts Canadian kids when I came in the League. It was Rick Fox who I love two weeks old moved to the Bahamas Right Bill Wennington. Who was from Montreal went to High School in up in New York? Maybe that was it so two guys that Billy's Canadian he grew up there rig. He was born there at a Canadian. Mom I think but like grew up in the bombers now like legit I think Toronto probably has more. NBA Players in New York City. To I think about like you know even the Greater Toronto is Jamal. Murray say Output is is even like I mean this year in the draft Nicole Alexander Walker. I think huge future like he saw AH RJ RJ. That's interesting to watch RJ. Go through this whole Bacon. Ism Right I saw you tweet in. 'cause I think your soccer team loss but you like that's cool. I'm about to go watch. Gosh you've got cool constantly light as though that's dope okay. You ever imagine a team from Canada. Winning the championship I'll know now not cutler worked for the warriors so I wanted the warriors win a deeply but if I ever had to be happy. The losing side is to see that country in Canada. They were showing the game. In movie theaters across the country parties in the street recreated eighteen gene replicas of the Jurassic Park type. They did that like different bars and different areas around town and across the country like Josh. It's special to see the game girl. Yeah and the franchise and the game began its reward in a sense you can never take that away from that is a historic moment. That all the kids families people will remember but you have to know not so much for the championship. I mean going back to the the boom of the Canada Canadian basketball you have to feel somewhat responsible for that. I don't ever look at it that way if I had an influence that's green. We need a big influence. A number of things I think one maybe myself and other guys showed a path. That's possible it wasn't wasn't you didn't see before Vince Carter bazzars used to. He was absolutely be like such an electrifying player in everyone's living room for these young generation. That's the I kinda like superstar and they saw him every night. That's important madge if there was no vincent second team that struggled and one guy say Damon events events where to begin to me a little before this generation but he gave us grin and a figure. Ah a little guy me aspect of eight incredible and a lot of kids could say I. We'll have to be but I think for Canada's sake the growth we're seeing now as raptors fence Damon in you know the Internet just being like it. Open the world up to people. TORONTO'S LIKE I duNno like a million people it's like a third fourth biggest city in North America. Erica wherever it may be a lot of people. A lot of great athletes now basketball's in everyone's living with those hoops going up driveways for people wanting to coach kids wanting to play And then a you think so us not perfect but a lot of Canadian kids got to play you and laboratory for people to see being a dad and they got to playing the best kids in the states everybody can for like whatever it is five ten pro tour right so are they retire. The great question I I mean I don't see why not in that. Hopefully they win a bunch of Jim if if they don't win another championship in the next ten fifteen years and it doesn't look like they're on the verge of the time. Why wouldn't you the man retire the Jersey he gave you the the game is about winning championships came? He won you championship and and you know I could see it if they win five six more now maybe like okay but he he gave you the ultimate. He's Neo Matrix Neo. He is neo. He's the man man out there. Like boy he came in what eight nine months. And nobody can do in the history like to me. In in my opinion damara Rosen degrade is wrapped in his shoe. As far as we know how for the city wanted to be there and was grave. Grandma's just took that over eight nine months. Well listen I love Demar Gray player. Lovell Kawais on is there's not canola. He's a different animal. Just is like no disrespect. Amari is incredible player Co is Different animal yeah. He doesn't sway and by the way they don't leave is healthy. Yeah Z.. Real do you know what I mean. That's why he can he can. He's this can just drag you around the court and I like drop you off and get where he wants to go. And he's not one hundred percent and I'm strong. I'm strong out here and Emma get at you on this. I've seen clips you working with stuff or working with golden state. How much joy to the brings to you to give your knowledge to the youth or who are the players up debt levels today? It's it's fun you know with the war is I think the I work closely most closely with Kevin Durant. But I am. They're like for for any of them they want. They don't need me but it is a great experience for me to give back. And it's a great experience to learn the like to watch watch how they do and how they've moved the needle in different directions and their greatness and how their personality manifests itself though. So it's nice if I can have an impact on any of these guys but I learned as much from them without them knowing. It is watching observing seeing how they handle situations seeing seeing what they've brought to the table how they've pushed the game in the direction that their personality and skill set. Take some so. That's a thrill for me. It's rewarding to be able to help but it's it's it's equally as exciting to watch these great great players you know. Show me how you would you saying you work with. I've got and the chance to get to know him a little bit just talking to him and the thing that I've been most impressed about him with him about that I didn't know before talking to him was was his thirst. I feel for the game better at the game to learn more about the game. Be More of a perfectionist game for like a lot of guys getting in and they they give good. I get caught up. He started thing for me when I look at him. He's one of the few guys who is legit Who Pure who wanted to who he? One of traffic Galloway's the perfect his game to get better to become tougher. The guard to to master different things that other greats have mastered like. That's what he talks else about Ad Nauseam all the time. So I mean you being windows grades eight so Back to back MVP. I know he was all over you. Yeah well I mean like. He has a hooper. Kevin's a sophisticated guy doing a lot of great things charitable businesswise. Here's a lot of interests. I think the reason he left left because he's curious he's courageous. He wants different experiences. Push the ball. He wants to try new things and learn in growing and live life but when it comes down to it he is a hooper like he wants to play basketball almost to a fall. And I'll say this because like always he's trying to push Kevin K- you're getting twenty. I want you to be religious with like your activation and corrective exercises and all that stuff like every time you're going to touch the would. Would I want you to your exercise. But I think Kevin's is just get me on the court and give me a ball. I want to work out. I want to shoot. I play one on one. I WANNA play. You won't nose the like the history and over here. Here's everything he he learns and understands and respects and eats it all up that I was like still impressed of how much he wants to be more efficient and the this and be that in how not not only. I'm not talking about it. I'M GONNA go watch this. I'm GonNa Watch that when I can get to it. I'M GONNA work at it and I'm going to do everything six nine shooting and drew. Ah his mobility skill level and he is is one of the all time greats race And sometimes we get to the stage workers like you know like I was GonNa work out and I like if a game breaks out anywhere. He's down of saying thank you know. He loves the game boy that pure way that if a game broke out and he had ten. He's on he's GonNa jump in. WHO's playing well? And you get more selective as you get older still feel like he just has that Jones in Mit. Do the has a pair of sneakers all the time. We're on our way. We hope and by the way if I it is game I would too. She's a killer. I mean you're all in any court and it's like this is as usual you gotta TNT hosting You kind of feel like you like me. You're not a camera. Microphone Guy Right here. Cameras and microphones. But yeah yeah so I I did like I didn't I didn't set out to do it and I got you know. I think everyone knows a huge soccer fan and I got approached last year from bleacher report in TNT to cover the Champions League which is the best soccer competition all the teams in Europe and and for me as a big Fan. I was like okay. I didn't WanNa do like TV. But this is something I gotta try. It can't pass it up because this is what I do. Anyway like Geek out on soccer all day long I tried it and loved it and so this year is year two. And I'M GONNA DO GONNA do some segments for Tuesday night. NBA Va TNC Since it's in the same family you're going to do a little bit and just see how it goes hopefully grow and build something that Eh inch. It is entertaining people and but You know really started from a place where I didn't WanNa do it and then I got the soccer as a basketball player flair and you don't get those opportunities. How so I took it and here I am now creeping in the NBA? We'll see how it goes. Hopefully I'm okay at it and and we'll go from there. Yeah that's how I was with. This is like got to do something that makes you never know you might like it. You don't seem like your event. Yeah yeah.

"Ask and healed. But like you know. We're talking about Joe Johnson to miss him as a young first year team position litter. I'm not saying like Oh we would want one but like you don't know you don't know I. I will say that that I do feel confident. If we would have the to like what I would I original tame the two three four years stretch. You know taking shots at and then making adjustments but keeping our team. I gotta believe we got US wanted wanted to. I got to. We want to go. Just keep losing into the spurs like that. We would have figured out if we saw them to three straight years in the in the conference final. They weren't gonNA just keep stopping us. Every time I think about that. I'm like this was crazy like the everywhere at a video games. They put us on the Phoenix team. Not any of the other ones. That first team on like this is crazy. Why did you choose the lucky couple reasons? There is one main reason which I get to but two reasons one it. It was a good opportunity right to look at the team. They're assembling not. Yeah but the second reason was this is the end of my career. I wanted to be in the fire. I didn't WanNa go to a team where there wouldn't be any scrutiny or pressure or no exit racist opportunity right to play this league for three. Hopefully I at the time I was like it was a three year deal. Thought I can keep going after the deal right so I'm still thinking. Yeah I can play for a while but this three years. I 'cause when I my last year in Phoenix Zyppah the All Star game. I was thirty eight so I still thought I I got this as I can keep this going like I might not be like. I wasn't on thirty thirty one but I'm still playing I level and I can continue so I wanted to be in the fire. I didn't want to like to go out to pasture so to speak in situation where I was just whatever. So I remember actually asking Steve Kerr who was round when he was a part of the ownership group and we went to Phoenix and then he became the general manager Phoenix he was doing TV the time. I call them for advice and now I remember he. He Sang it back to me when I said Tim. I I WANNA go to the Lakers. Because I want to be in the fire like I wanna it'd be play under pressure but the main main reason was that I was going through a divorce. My my ex was in Phoenix and the kids. I have to stay with their mom and my other. Two options were Toronto New York our senior year. And and I'm like now I have five kids like dad first and then arrange everything else in my life all the stuff. I'm doing around around them. So it's always been a priority to me so in the end like that was the deal breaker chance to tell him going to La. Because I could literally after practice fly to Phoenix Goto. A Kid's soccer. You know income back. I won't be back and be a practice early day right so that was the reason. Yeah but those are the two reasons wanting to be in the fire and you know there was a potentially a great team. That's there to alternately. It was a decision on family but man I can remember like really coming here believing that I have a lot laughed. I can't wait I with everything. Prepared was ready. And you know it just wasn't meant had to be on by for all of us together wasn't meant to be and then I broke my knee. I fractured my second game in. La and my body's never been the same since that conditioning on the treadmill lifting lifting to everything I could to get back out there maybe to a fault maybe I should have one. Maybe I was doing too much to. Maybe I should have supported team in the flesh but I wanted to support them by playing right. Got To focus on me rush myself again tonight. But we got some elite three head Moskowitz Finley and your offense offense with Nelly Nelly. Offense was like way different than everybody. Else's offense did you feel the could've won in Dallas if you are just stuck with the yeah with the cameras Nellie as often as like a vance yeah I think so no he was. He's many as a crazy. Creative basketball mind was ahead of the game. He goes on all the rules. Committee's always pushing the boundaries and everything he was the guy that would put like. I can't remember which way it was around. But he would put like manute bol on muggsy both. Sit off them and I'm going to cover him from like fifteen fifteen feet to the room and stuff like that that nobody would really try and Nellie had no problem doing it and now he was like a guy that loved to play off the elbows and put you in a position. Where if you get get a catch on tight on the elbow? Put the defense in a weird position because the weak side is still one pass away even the weak side corner. So everyone's like just a little a bit out of their comfort zone and so he loved elbows loved two and three men Games on one side and Kenny. junked up the game. He plays super surly. Play We'll play fast. We'll play slow. He'd post me up sometimes. Different guys like weird stuff. That often they would strangely work. And then UNC. You won't see again. And so he was so adaptable and creative. And so he he's a basketball genius in some ways can cause you you consider like how they get to that position and to be other beat so different you have to be an a crazy smart or creative and so look me my dirk and myself like if we had our continued to go together and you add like in the end they got Tyson Chandler right like if you had a gone the moment where we got somebody like that you know who I used to love which the play which I was more keys Daniels and Josh how those guys I I liked him to play so wealthy out they fit perfectly exactly because they could switch they can both make a play you you know they could defend like I said multiple positions and so they are versatile and they could fit in around us or take over a little more when we weren't on the court is I take it was in the problem was we narrow let it develop Riley it never got the chance to grow together for five six years yeah like I at those guys probably came a year or two before I left and then a year or two after Finn left and so why not sweet spot was what the additions we could've may we never saw it isn't so but there's no reason why with like a couple with those guys in the Mike if if a Tyson Chandler became available or somebody else there's no reason why we couldn't you've pushed in a championship team you want MVP. Tony System used to do you see. James Harden could've why why am VP three years in a row. You know what I'm saying. What's about Dan? Tony System at point guard. You can have so much success if you have the skill level to right but see it gave me an opportunity my best. Yeah Same James is not that easy though like like I think people think all not system but like you know like we had a hard time finding being someone play when when I sat down because it is it is a bed like over. The course of you can have a hot streak or the courses seen season in. Having to make all the decisions being super-efficient it relies a lot on that player to to to to be efficient and consistent over and over so it allowed me. That's what I did was make decisions be creative or distort the defense the pressure on the defense I think or different players but we both played cat-and-mouse where we allow our scoring rink to make our passing more dangerous passing to make our scoring dangerous and put the defense in a bad position where they're constantly having to make really quick decisions. They they no matter what decision they make could be wrong. Right so I don't know if I'm like trying to pump myself up by saying like it's it's it's it's not as it's not as the system really allow me to be my best but it it. It was also so exhausting to see James Hoy now like do you see similarities. Because you just said when you got when you got out the game you see him. Get game in the whole church. Chris Paul they got book. You know what I'm saying. Sure you see the mistakes that you may a in what Houston is going with the system. Same System now. I think Houston's been incredible. I think like people saying that they james and Kristen work work is wrong. Yeah because like you look at the warriors. They're historically great and they brought Chris Paul on and they got this close to beating historically great team store like Mike Historically one two or three I don't know Top five they got this close to beating twice and they came from not really in the same ballpark there. That doesn't mean it didn't work. It means it worked extraordinarily. Well they just never got over the hump and that's a break You know Ah I look James Harden is. He's like I can't even relate you know for someone his size is to do what he does and he's taken. This era embraced the way this man is being played as as like you know putting up numbers numbers that are crazy. I think it's a big success. Happen to be going against the Warriors Asia. MJ In the nineties your draft the legendary. You had to play three on three with to pick got it. WHO's the other two players you'll want to play with you? I mean. Thank you to Kobe. In their bane specially actually three on three like that's cheap I mean murmurs ro Rail and Alan Iverson in like a you know the and more. I'm sure there's guys I'm forgetting. BELYKH SCHRIEF Outdo Ryan. I mean Reeve think like Marbury Very Antoine Walker cyber so many. That was more like more that I'm forgetting that you consider sitter Camby like you WanNa you know I'm playing copying Camby it was cool to You don't know what the time right hero. You're just a bunch of young guys especially I- I graduated from college a lot of them are y'all gonna me by like we're all young is is like hoping to make an impact in the league right Kobe. At the time we didn't really know as much about high school kids. We knew Kobe was like this kind of prodigy. But we didn't know it wasn't on instagram. Every day right. So you're Kinda like taking leave. You know so Allen Iverson. Kobe Bryant like these some of the most influential the players. The League's ever seen so it's crazy to look back and think that at the time we didn't know we not Ray Allen and go down the line but but look back and it's like a bunch of famous and it's incredible are you talking about you know the everything is GonNa wish. I'll take on youth hoops right now with the whole social media. Evolve me in evolutionary dead. And how kid have clips. And he's the hottest thing in. He has a thousand followers. Whatever like I feel I feel like it's is so so different in in a way I would say like the purity of it is known 'cause as soon as the guy they ranked the top fifth graders a top four top eight light? How can.

"I was drafted fifteenth. But I think still people like. He's a nice player. Maybe he'll be a starter one day but we'll see so I go all through the struggles. We went through and then to both be there one-sentence disappointing because we could play together and run together. The other hand to see him won a championship to him when MVP is incredibly rewarding for me knowing that what we went through. Here's like one how we got hammered hammer by people in the media. Fans took our lumps on the court but like we kept pushing kept growing. Kept going back to the Jim at night or there early were there late. Eight never relented from like the work so to see it like that for me to be honest like my this goes for for Dirk as well but and our relationship it but for me like when I won the MVP the first time it was like I was just so happy because the example like it sets for kids. You really really want to be the best you can be and you really really will commit to it. And you won't listen today Sayers and you won't let adversity slow you down now. That's where my story was that I never stopped finding away to believe there were moments right. Didn't believe felt shittier. Didn't have the confidence or were you know. Felt bad about myself or didn't like the outlook or was a non believer but those moments I got over quickly and like believed again awed again like and I mean quickly and if I felt that way for extended period of time I never stopped working so that to me is like what made me so happy was that it was an example for young people. That like you don't have to. There's not it's not the Chosen One. Only you can be someone. That's a late bloomer. That finds away that you know sticks with it and so that was really rewarding and the same thing to watch dirk do it. It's just so conceivable. When we started in Dallas together you know that was the sickest part for me like when you WANNA MVP? It was crazy. 'cause sent a different message. Is it to the kids. It wasn't the person averaging thirty averaging thirty. Five with all of these different deals A he was a guy you know not like a big do. He was a normal do- who looked like any regular person. He didn't do like you know you. You see Michael Jordan. He jumped hiring. Anybody can imagine like people can envision doing what you were doing anybody could go out in the front yard and try your moves and do it and maybe we not look like you but it wasn't like you were jumping over things that they couldn't so it was like Steve Nash. To see for me the coolest part was to be being your teammate. May I got a chance to be around. See and I will tell I will tell all my friends Elissa. We'll see what st now like Bro when we go out he go out with this. This like no. It's not like you Steve. You are not trying to be like US early. You were being Steve Nash. But you were one hundred percent with the group wherever everywhere we have barbecues. I think that was one of the things that people didn't understand about our team that you'd made us so special. You say we came early. We were there in August working out but right then it was not like it was just one of those things we had a special group. Everybody clicked everybody on guy. We're GONNA have a barbecue for for you know like six guys. There wasn't like people was doing some real heavy lifting. Get guys to come. It was just like we came together. And then you see guys like Steve Nash. Jason J. Vizquel. We're going out with you. Know it's all black dudes going to you know to spies but vizquel read the bibles. Though but he was. He was in with Tame One. You know what I'm saying like we start out my ooh Steve Ash. I would have real like this is. Don't Oh yeah being that translate to the court and before you know it like we like this everything we do. We you got five guys at dinner on this trip. You got guys doing this so doing that together. We have a party at somebody's house. Everybody over you know what I'm saying. That's what really be getting the teams like this before you know it and then it's like now we hoping everybody everybody really cool with each other in the biggest thing that Steve did. I know for a fact for me. 'cause you know we came from La. We were all six of us. We I'll jockeying for position. I'm trying to school each school. That was the first time in my career in the NBA. Where you may me feel extremely controversial? We'll give it up. You don't get it back. I don't care like you remember how you go tackle Steve. How do you explain to me? What tax these give me? I'm thirsty I had A. Hey listen the way we play. It may be a stretch where you don't get it for five times but DNA is gonNA come back to you like six or seven straight times. That will just how we play sometimes. Yeah and once I started understand and I understood like I said he made it easy. 'cause he was gone. The amount of what the play was doing that was his mutant power like acute trip and right now care what the play it is. I'm a figure out a way to get cuter ball or Mari trip and right now I don't care what the plant is his. I'm about to figure out a way to get Amari the ball and it ain't going to be in a disrespect for ways to the coach or to the player to nothing but I'm GonNa make this happen because I don't want him to go off. I don't want him to go off and he was the orchestrated. That was what was most impressive. Because you had me you had tricks you had a mar you had you had to keep these the personalities fair it the right way otherwise it would never have worked like he did A and was he was amazing with that giving up his cell. Oh I oh so. That's why I was like that's a whole different message to the kids out there could be the MVP being unselfish Lino teaming not trying to score thirty thirty two years in a row. Yeah W. Sieve that that original team. That's out had with Q.. Q. Traded traded after the laws are laws. jo-john asa but the year y'all had with the original amendment like the All Star Game. It was like like a Phoenix Suns All Star game doing a challenge and all that stuff winning the three point. The whole year was just like a successful year. But y'all Trae Q.. What was like different? Well it was. It was the biggest thing that changed from the first years. We didn't implant fast anymore so we were just as successful over like the making the conference finals double. We didn't play as fast anymore. I looked back. We lost some of our advantage by slowing down. Like and I think at the time we played so fast. You'll you can win that way. But the reality is with our roster we should have played faster right. It was so like unaccepted culturally by basketball in the media and the fans. That was always isn't going to work in so we don't sense the book seven seconds or less like we didn't really play that way house with everybody said to me. I was like we have literally. We never talked about seven seconds or less and all of this stuff when they came out with it I was kinda thrown off. Somebody say I think Mike did say it. Sometimes but like you're right it wasn't like that will not motto. It wasn't just the way we played Lou but every year after that and we slow down and in a sense we kinda succumbed calmed the comet. I gave you take you for Kurt Thomas Yup Yup even like I think I told you I watched the game in the two thousand seven San Antonio series the reason we beat San Antonio is the game Robert Ory check the scores Table End of the game. We won that game to tie it to on the road. We didn't know what the time there was no analytics now. The best the beyond the no but game wasn't in a place where we understood. We shoulda doubled down played faster. Uh We won that game playing spurs style and really had no business winning that game and end up losing the series. Whether it's because suspensions are not we were playing the game their way no matter of. It's not what you remember but when you wash it you're like those fast we're struggling. We're swimming coming up stream to every gotTA count. You know what I mean like a matter so much whereas they had to me and nuts Tony Amanullah. We're not everyone but timmy. In that era in that game so dominant not even on the scoresheet like just defensive or is takes space away his press offensively he creates space and like so in the speed of the game and the style plan that era. He was perfect in years. Why is one of the best ever but we like in a sense? I tried to match him as that of like saying okay. Let's make timmy. Play an extra twenty possessions Russians than do right as making move one hundred times directions. I wasn't acceptable necessarily so. That's where q leaves. We end up training. He was Sean for a shack. It's like these things you know actually brought us back to the pack of porsches over the back on the uh-huh playing field with everybody extraordinary to keep our standards instead of we can just play our game and be right and I remember Knbr all of that like when it happened. I couldn't believe because are you calling me. I want to say you were at at fans wedding. You read a bar sound like I'm seeing this screen like what the hell is going on like. Yoda was happening and then within the next few days I I think they signed Rajai bill that aggravated Joe because he was supposed to be the top priority in the first order of business before anything was done he was mad because they had traded me before that happened in a signed. Another wing before that happened. He was like I'm done and the craziest part about all that is remember. Remember at the beginning of the season they could have like two thirty six but they were scared because they had just committed money to me and Steve. It was a they just bought the team team. We were the first two guys were just like Woah will be going up and they also were a bunch of billionaires. They're wealthy guys about the team. They were like feeling their way into this. Unfortunately we were on the costs right away right away and it just. It wasn't great timing between them kind of getting their feet. Wet and figuring out what this wasn't it wasn't NBA. Them was good but it wasn't. These are two billion dollars. Franchises like some people thought they overpaid at like four hundred under million or whatever it was so they're thinking okay. We may be overpaid to get in now. And we want to operate a big loss and pay tax and all that stuff so it just the whole confluence of things. Didn't work in our favor in a sense here this out but again even more than it was just it was it was just like the common you thought was like you can't win this way. Yeah and so when you lose like you shouldn't like nobody everybody's saying it. Crushes the new not losing the first year but we felt the way to that. In right away we play so it was like there's waiting for the entire year after after they got used to. Okay they they really are GonNa win like this the whole year then. They said they not gonNA win when it matters even though they sweep in an eight killing everybody will waters. They came when you can't win in the playoffs like this song. We lost those like told you so. Yeah and we remember Joe broke focus. Face Yup yeah and the final. The West came back for the last game every lost in the conference finals right and he played great with a mask..

"Remember I remember telling Jeff Jeff was like I'm blown away by that weeks later months later he was still. I can't believe Steve Nash did that. I mean I forgot about it so you brought it up a excited to be on the team. I was excited for him. Become the team when we what are we waiting on. Let's get let's get going crazy still in training camp when you finally got a chance to kind of mode everything and see everybody and play with them. The chemistry I have like is like from day. One kicking like all season that season. Yeah I sing like yeah. Chemistry was so good. I was swinging a ball. Everybody was CERNA balls freely. Did you feel it in training camp. They're like yeah this problem. I don't think we knew how we'd be in relation to the rest of the League but we knew there was a good feeling like is gonNA come in everyday up. I think also like we came to Phoenix early so before training camp. We're playing pickup in the building. And like you could sense. This is going to work. Is My nature to push does get get an push and create something. That's how I like to create opportunities for my teammates and so we had guys Q.. And Joe and Amar Sean on and you know all these guys that were like athletic Skillful and I think for me it was a pleasure to play with them and so oh I just wanted to push and see what we can get even pick up. It was like funny. I couldn't wait to get out and get out and you know going for track like meat for opportunities and so you could sense. And I think that was Mike's Brilliance like. I don't think Mike came in with like this hour gonNA play. He saw plenty of backup and was like hold on like Mr Smarty which let's let some of this evolve He was brilliant in the way he just gave his little details like new guys get on the baseline as line. Don't creep up run to the people feel Weber. Here's the first in my nature especially coming from La. My first four years as I was a beasley sneaking get tips and tip dunks and I I made my living in college kid offense rebound every single day film. Remember you'd be standing there in the corner. Im your spacing monitor. Mr Richardson your creep out. Just what he said like on we get deep in a corner to create the best places so my nature. I was started to like if the ball start moving and I think somebody about star edging inside the three point line here every every single time Mr. Richardson like lobby coming up the creepy knee. And he'll yell at me every time about that. That was like Phil that's crazy. That's a great merger maury style violent when Amaury got what you use a contended like with the cages. The duncans like he was giving. Don't problems. Sure come out of nowhere. A lot of people didn't see him Comin' bloom the first year he played with you. The dunks look every adore is a freak. His feet like people talk about his jumping ability but his he has great feat with he is always on balance and like a coiled spring. Never off balance or you know a great feat great athlete explosive. Quick fast all those things agile and he had incredible heads for me. It was a pleasure to try to draw the defense and find him where you're like where he operated in Space Amari says some. We had them on. You like man. I just know whenever I got it when I came in I just wanted the I wanted to be frozen and make noise and I say he. Did you accomplish nothing note. What you he made noisy? It was nasty he was. I sometimes say my head like this young boy is crazy. It's funny right like I don't even know like I don't even know Ah. He's remembered by this generation. The right way T- tore the rim off people's heads off away. He thought he man he the Mari headed. You has an MVP seasons a Mario headed MVP sees you know I think that he was first team all NBA in all seven in the year. After a microfracture. Yeah I first team. All League in a league that has K. G. Tonky a whatever position by saying time in the same token of saying that was the first time that I play with with Steve Vienna superstar. Aw by US banking out but I got two years. which would then you know used like the way he came through down the Cambay NBA? Yeah town ten can do nothing with him if he if he had those guys on the move. I mean. He didn't didn't need he could get on them without if they were. There is take off. Cut his leg if he caught the ball and they were trying to recover picket role. They gets. It's zero chance. And if they tried it was ugly and just use man he was gifted fun to play with fun to watch. I definitely talked most of the host of dunks. He making me jump Whittam amount to three point. Line go up. I'm screaming flags SALIVAS E. You know what's happening. You know before he even gets the balls. Oh this is going to be ugly. It was a gift for me. I mean to play with him. He just said so many gifts physically and he he took to it like he didn't say like wait a minute. What should I post up? He's like no no no. I'm happy picking rolling. He embraced it going to work. It was it was joe poisoning. You couldn't do the thing if you let him go one on one he was going at around overthrew whoever and at the second yard come to help one Hsun uh-huh faceoff yeah. It was hard. It was hard when we and after I have many games. We really start looking around. Use other line Starting to look really expect this because we like I said we were picked out of the playoffs started the season hot and it continued and we started like thirty one of five right after people thought last house right whether it was last or whatever we weren't supposed to be less that'd be thirty one and five and like the lot of games were like in the fourth quarter we. We came with three different game plans and all three of them where we still got beat by thirty or twenty every game plan against Off Their system. y'All was playing Joe. Johnson emerged people. Didn't know Joe Joe drafted drafted by the Celtics Fan but when he played with jolly it was like who is Joe Johnson. He's he's a threat and then when he started getting on the ball. Put us to the Sinaloa Malaysia. Oh well that was. That was the sad part about Joe. Not Stand around was that you know he he could have. I mean we never in my time in Phoenix. INEX- really had that solidified backup point guard. Yeah now Jones Way greater than a broken garba. He could have done that to you. Know when I I went out of the game. He could handle what happened is is that it wasn't about the backup much as the way we played on the court and the way we play when I was the court it didn't to yes and we never said identified the way we were gonNA play when I was in the court whereas Joe just because he's a great player. There's not a prom all right so he could have emerged. all-star wing player for also could have been an all star Point Guard in the backup role right. That was a shame. I'm in a sense because he would have served so many purposes for us the year I mean pushing the button. First of all we got on the break and teams couldn't stay with US UH conditioning and athleticism The shooting but also in the half court the pick and roll Murray diving shooters outside. I it was. It was almost new to the league and so now it's common but at the time it was it was the first you were exhausted or planning the funniest part. Those people always access during which I do for the condition in which the FBI special keep all number thirteen. You WanNA shoot you. Don't keep up like this series. You don't man you're gonNA keep up back-back Mvp we all Wanna N V. He does one is dreams and you get into DANTONIO system. You feel your file. You've got the knowledge come from Dallas and you went back to back. MVP's like how added that it was surreal like to Ghana's I never wanted to be MVP. I I was like a one. Scholarship kid like career back up when got drafted like kept pushing. I never ever thought like I WANNA BE MVP. Elliot I wanted to like can I be a starter. Can I be an all-star. How many times times can I be an all star like to push myself? I never even thought about being MVP. So you know it's one of those crazy things that you know the the moment in time I'm it's strange now because you look back on it and it was like to win it twice and then have my best. You're the third year dark win. It saw there's no but like it's strange like I never. I don't like first of all I moved on after I finish playing stuff so so far behind me. Like if I see a clip of me it comes across my feet or something. I don't even relate to that person like I really don't say goodbye. Goodbye all that and you do hear the neen a little bit noise own Shinola like won. MVP stuff it's just weird to look back and be like at the time I went to Rome and at my best. You're the third year you know narratives change and it's just weird to look back on and against like I just left all that behind and moved on to be dad and enjoy the rest of my life so I kind of went on a tangent there and it's not something like I put a ton of thought into this feels weird and strange at that was my life at one point i. I'm I'm telling you for me to be there to be your team. May for the biggest things that I was most impressed about. I don't think people really understand how hard you work to keep your buddy. It's in college. It with the with the band enjoyed like you got to see leave. My do I walk in the gym before and is not a weight. Insight is a puddle of sweat on each side and my man got the Bosnian Rosen is bans on him and he turned in in different ways. And I said and I'm talking about dripping sweat hard workout boy. Ready fry was crazy to see. y'All as dual you went. Dirk is a do on Dallas and you win. MVP and then he went MVP like how proud of him. Long Nice van in the same apartment that that means a lot because is We bought really start at a low point. We didn't come in the League as chosen ones or we didn't come to lead heralded dirk. What was drafted Pretty Iowa?.

"Why because of you know. We started really really down there deep in the mud. So talk about how y'all to Kinda gatherings is hit off in still wanted to all time best duos closing did it and like you say weren't short shots to do. A lot of people take even more. The child came together. y'All started not like you say started out together doing but came a great deal of like how the child hated off like what was I was that is interesting because I came for the day. I my press conference after the draft. Dr Came to for his. Here's the first pick whatever I can marry. He's like six seven eight nine or whatever it was so we did not press conference together there. They were like try to recruit him like we had like a party. At Natalie's house went over his house. And we try to recruit. We want him to come this year because the idea for him from missed apple was draft. Me and I'm going to go back and go play year or two in Germany like eighteen nineteen or wherever he was he risen quickly he was totally holy not known and then he made his way to the hoop summit then like at the play. Yeah he he went off and so he had this quick rise and so the mavs were like meaning. Let's get him over here. Let's get him simulated develop him whereas from his perspective it was like hold on. I just I just broke onto the scene. Like I want my mom's cookie right away from my local team. And so they're like recruit him so like I try to. I encourage him. I mean more so like you have a friend here too. I'm just moving here. If you come here I'll be here the help you learn the culture though the can and so in a sense. I don't want to make this the sound. You know what what I mean like a big brother in the but I was still was a in that I wanted to see him succeed and see him more than anything transition easily right and so I hope I helped for me. It was easier because Canada's not that different that different to I went to college in the states so I but I also can understand more so the maybe an American writer different Germany is and what the differences are fine where he comes from and so and my parents are from the UK. So I kind of had a little more of an international house right. Yeah and so I could see what a a jump it was for him and I could see also dirk was a timid guy like you know we we remember him now. Is this not only Greyer but like a killer. The in a game daily kill Oser. That wasn't his personality. At first he had to overcome with a lot of hard work. You know he grew into that like when he first came he'd be like he'd taste and I know he's exaggerating but even what are we doing here like helpful white staffs like you know what I mean and I'd have to be like dude like just you're you're good. Stay with it and I know some of it was just him like you know. He's a long way from home and all that stuff but he literally went from that kind of mindset to like think. Give me the ball. Your it's over. Is Anybody no matter who right so he but that is the leap he took because he so dedicated to his graft within the league at that. Time Powell four was was murdered. especially in the West you ever see Casey Weber and he got to play against Dell and the time he came in league powerful really posted up. Yeah they all the guys you mentioned could shoot especially mid range but they really posted on a long and pain to try to punish you big like guys. We try to bully you. Yeah and so he had had to like over he was the first kind of like prototypical stretch for stretch five sometimes but he came in league. They're thinking is he going to be three handle the bombs mobile wasn't explosive but he was mobile. Only it skills and so when it all shook down obviously found his position and became what he you became. But you know from the star who was too young is just trying to make it and pushing each other and going to the gym twice a day right like we lived in the same apartment complex. You know to single guys go into gym in the morning with like the team go in like maybe a little bit of like an offseason. You're going like you hit the strength coach. A little bit on the core. Then you play pick up still kinda then we come back at night and play warmer one horse and my my mother maybe conditioning. Whatever like that was the the foundation I think of like our relationship but also Dr Grothe? We needed that. We needed to go back Bush's other pushing like not just to believe deeper but also get better. It wasn't doesn't like we just need an opportunity. We needed to grow. We need to develop. We need to assimilate the speed of the game back. Almost not mistaken you. You mentioned that the press coffer offers didn't have like blonde her of his blonde. I had okay. My brother and I was still in Phoenix. Mix like leached our hair completely blonde being idiots and and so of course by the time month or two later the press conference. I was halfway halfway back to normal and a hat frosted tips on the lake. Jessie leg by it so I I I was at one point totally blonde and then I went to the press covers. Can I in idiot but did you ever think did you will leave Dallas going on now I mean it was like first of all like Finn and Dirk were like Family Durkan our super close house. 'cause we were like in the same complex Finn was my guy guy but like like a big brother to me and played so well together developed developed together he like I said like pass the torch to us so graciously innocence I wanted to stay but I think Mark Cuban and this has been covered a million sometimes but he saw me. I was thirty and key. Didn't know I was going into my lay trying. He thought he's GonNa. He's another time. I played a little more of a kamikaze style. Like I was going to the cup. Jewish honor miles now taking contact like throwing stuff up and so I think think he was like and I had a back history so he was like this is going to run. Its course awhile what I want to commit to him for five six years I get it makes sense you know I was disappointed and I thought I'd stay there for finish my career though you know. We're all idealistic. When you're in that situation and Fitz producing and your best friend Out Do oh you know what also killed me a little bit that year is that at my last year there. We had some my second last last year. They made the conference final right my last year. They're we acquired Antawn Jamison Antoine Walker and players but they also put in the same position position is Dirk and me and my my default is to pass ask and so I spent the first half of that season. I just trying to figure this. Hang out so my scoring. Shooting percentages are really down. And I don't think at the time we were sophisticated enough to realize the second half of the season I think I shot like well all over fifty percent but overall I shot forty one percent of the field so to from I went from whatever forty high forty two forty one. I'm thirty and I have a bad back. Yeah I can. I think mark thought I know where this is going we say forever in the NBA. You get to thirty or point. Guard is going down so his defense. That was probably smart outlook nowadays. Maybe look into the numbers and the end. Someone's work ethic and what we know physically about the body and all that stuff but so. I never thought I'd leave in. Phoenix gave me a great opportunity. Fortuity to make Like a deal. Like a contractual deal that I wanted to make by far and I was thirty so I couldn't turn that down and I also liked the roster Phoenix. These young athletic guys that I I felt like I think I can do something with these guys. Is you think that looking at their roster fingers rocks. Did you think that John was going to be better than Dallas. No but I thought we could be really good and like we had a chance to surprise a lot of people. I I always like go in thinking. Let's like yeah. I think this could be like I'm excited grant opportunity. Let's see and so I but I'll never see that like I said all right away on me on that team. Do we gotta work. We gotta come together. We gotta figure this out now. I think we could surprise a lot of people but to have like the year we had. Yeah it was crazy crazy. 'cause I remember talking to rex. Chapman who was charged block locker. tars figure. Rex was my vet. You're on the plane together my rookie year all year like he was great to me. We're still friends. This Day was like a big influence on me so he was working for the team when the sun's GM. I think Hammond Super Day yet. They were like assistant GM's and so I remember at training camp. Because he was my dad like going to dinner with him one night or being in his room just like watching something on TV and him like talking about it and like him kind of be like you know like I think we better than people think but people thought we weren't going to make the playoffs produced deuces Cognac. France Hennessy is the world's best-selling Konia and supports. Those who never stopped. Never settled. Enjoy an amazing cutter with Hennessy. Very special especially today and always remember to drink responsibly. Before we get into this season I have to. I don't even know if you remember this story right so so we both signed creating stay year. Remember we there. He's signing midnight right so you gotta remember this so we sitting there. I remember. They had us in office. Ustinov like whatever watching some sports and just trying to we way starting starting to take some time that is going on you know near rates. Come in he's like he told us whatever he's like. We handled some things back So then finally they come back it turns out remember back. Then you gotta think we agree to whatever ideals were but it was under ended a pretense that the salary cap was going to be whatever and winning officially came in it was lower. So that meant that somebody had to do they do so. We have been sitting there for so long rigs finally like that. I think they were trying to work out on their own. They saw they couldn't so they come in. They was all nervous and this that and so he was like yeah. This is what's going on and so everything happened so fast. This is my new. I was I lived to. What is he was like? He was telling me that he explained to somebody. You know salary cap came in lower and this a scenario. Somebody's going he was like is that what the hell. Oh you this will you like. What the Hell we've been waiting? He's like taking off mine and do this. I turned him. Look like wait a minute to this day. I can't remember how much money it was or whatever but right then I'll never forget. I remember calling Jeff and he was like he did. WH J. everything happens. You make sure oh you go to him and you tell him how much for you. I'm like no I'm like already I'm like but it was. That was indicative of who you were for us. It didn't take it was no oh thought process. It was like that's what we known boom Bambang like me and Q.. China goes to the barn celebrating. And that was literally what you said and I was. I stopped I I look look they look like because your age and I think I wanna say he was playing some. You know. We're not waiting on this and we're trying to go 'cause rip it by that time. One Sunday morning remember I remember telling Jeff Jeff was like I'm blown away by that weeks later months later he was still. I can't believe Steve Nash did that..

"Go like go to work and you have to have people like that some steps of your career right like Michael Finley for me and dirt. He was gee. That's my g rice compliance with him on a team but just in the gym him you know how he is like seeing what he do image John they would dump them them statues of just perfection professionalism for me fan definitely. He was is always a great friend. Great teammate and when Dirk and for lack of a better word because I don't I never saw this way when we eclipsed him when you look back he was all sorry sorry he was also two years in a row and grew empowered. US Let us group. Then we made all star game and he didn't. He never wants ever stepped in the way of that verbally. Emotionally field off him when you hear like he was a hundred percent down with it all like. That's a good human being one and we're lucky that those are at a guy like you know like he handed over in a sense like we still needed him he was still really great players. Still playing in an all star level but he empowered us to be our best. You don't have people like that along the way who knows like now we should thank him me. Mr Phoenix teammate. Should thank him for putting on you so that you came out the way you were by the time we got some. We couldn't be happy using address you legendary ager. The legendary drives one degrees drives arguably where did you WANNA go was phoenix. What's despite the newly you workout out and all that stuff? The only place that there is to interesting places. I didn't know Phoenix for sure at all The only two others Vancouver Hoover being that. I'm from British Columbia. And they have. I can't remember what they had. They got Sharieff so they're the second pick but they also have the twenty something pick. Roy Rogers Gers. I wasn't going to be the second pick by was a trade in the war. And what I what I last to the twenty s or whatever and then the other one was Minnesota they they had I think four and they took Marbury in. It was like they weren't sure if they were going to trade down for me. They had me there for like I stayed there for like three or four days. I usually gopher workout. You're in and out. I stayed like they. I mean hang with them from minutes is like you know you got a sense that maybe there are more But uh-huh ended up taking staff and an end to be honest as surprise on the day. I didn't know really one way or another. So how is that. How do you feel you get there? You go from possibly going to Minnesota being part of a you know young core would Kevin Garnett coming up but then you get there. Now you got K.. J. Kevin Johnson and Jason Kidd sitting in front of me when I got drafted it was just Kevin Johnson. They traded for Jason Kidd though in December my rookie year. which is crazy right? I mean Johnson then you go on and get one of the best point guards in the game. So I'm like right away really crew. My I was always an underdog right in a late bloomer like always like one scholarship I graduated like I was always lay AAC catching up in a sense. Maybe because I started playing when I was thirteen maybe because I just physically wasn't your typical. NBA Player on. It wasn't very explicit. Have the knowledge of but it also like I wasn't explosive right so I think for me to get to the level I had to be creative and refine my skills get a little more right. Let me to where I was in the ballpark. You know like just as far as staying with guys and getting by people and so it was like one of those things where I took the whole thing is like. I'm fortunate to be here. I WANNA learn and I wanNA grown on play a long time and so I came in league not really expecting acting alone. I think people thought I'd be a career backup. I thought I'm going to be really good one day. But I it's GonNa take time and it's going to be a process so I was happy to learn from K.. J. And then when we got hi Jason Kidd instead I was excited at the time was one of the best. PG's in the league. It was it was his third year lease already been an all star was rookie of the year. So I was excited in a sense to learn from one of the best and like the world wasn't a small then nowadays half the League's in La Right there all summer. You see everything on Youtube instagram. Whatever like you right back then? It wasn't so small like you so to get that type of access to a great point like a gift and took it that way instead of like this is bs I need to get out of town and have my own show. I was like this is a great opportunity for me to learn and compete and competing practice and just watching him. Jason Compete. It gave me confidence that I could. You know do that one day so it I never looked at. I never looked down upon it I was. There's a great opportunity and I. I always say that. One of the biggest accomplishment accomplishments in my career was my second year in the League was that I did play like twenty two minutes. A game you Kevin Johnson and Jason Kidd so get minutes. Forgive minutes I was lucky because Danny ainge was crazy enough to play together but I also served say I'm GonNa play all three of you together because it could. You know ninety nine percent of the situations like we like you but you're gonNA have to watch thou for me was pivotal and and a great experience and then I went to Dallas next year. How did you feel about being in Dallas? And they was committed to great. I mean it was. It was crazy because I wanted Dallas. They gave me a good deal. But I wasn't like that heralded outside of Phoenix. I think think Phoenix was like wow. We have a kid here. We think it'd be really good. And he's shown a Lotta glimpses of promise but the rest of the League you know I don't know or at least the fans I didn't know I wanted to Dallas where we gave this little gyles money which wasn't crazy at the time but it was like they committed to me and then it was the third year in the league. My First Dallas was the lockout year fifty game season so we are planning to pick up game in like January like a week before the lockout broke and I got I went to the basket and someone knocked me out of the Air I landed on my back. My back was bugging me like really bad the whole year and so we played forty games where I wasn't moving well. I was kind of struggling to play poorly. You know fans were army and then we had a shoot around and Nellie l. e. out of plane dribble tag crazy and so we're playing that dribble got a back spasm and never had a back spasm my life so they wheeled me out in a wheelchair and walk for two days scarier twenty hours twenty three twenty four years old and so the doctrine they actually like you have a condition called spondylosis. The lowest thesis like stress fracture in your spine and one ear. Like vertebrae slipped meters. So what's there like. Twenty percent of the population has but for an athlete can be problematical yet. This really stay on top of android exercise and so that's why I struggled a year and a little bit subsequently because because I was dealing with something and so it was a rough ride in Dallas. I I like there was a time of playing point obviously started at the point. I think I got booed every time I touch the ball so I'd get it. After they score dream of the cord they went over for a and it was when we were in the one of the worst teams in the league. We were playing the rockets rockets Charles Barkley Clyde Drexler so sold out in Dallas got booed at home every two mentors law like crazy right and my younger brother when he was playing professional national soccer in England at the time again a break as he was playing for Canada and he whatever reason he was the first time he saw me play. And I'll never forget. I looked over at him like kind of like this is crazy. And he's in his seat little dying and it kind of gave me perspective like right like it was not permanent. It's no big deal but I think that experience like it just makes you tougher. I if you respond to it and say I'm not giving up like I'm not going to let this affect me. I'm going to ask so I was like I'm doubling down. I'm GONNA work work harder gray like extra hard so that I remember if I'm ever asked the question again subconsciously. Maybe not like should I quit. Should I take the edge. You know take a step down. I never want to that questions. Never in doubt no like I'm going for I would never have thought you ever got booed out there. I think back to remember our season the first time you went back this the president. No yes I was like. You know whatever we go on back you guys go back to their former city. I then went back to my mom's uh-huh whatever this ain't Steve Nash. Going back to Dallas where we got back. The airplane landed fans news. People was there. I barely remember that but I was sitting essay. Man was going on but we at the airport. Then we get to the hotel fans the deep up in there. Boy All Stephen as gear. No you get that fans be their way not said so for me. I would not like. That's a crazy story here. He got booed every time. You touch the ball go from that to like when we came back. They was mad at Cuban for bring them back for. Let them go away to us and it was homecoming. It was crazy crazy reception did they. Did they do a video. They did video but I'm not a reception. They need to reception. I was impressed. I was impressed. I you know I think it was also because we Durkan. I came there as like guys that people are really unsure about new I. I was traded their side. The good deal but like wasn't like a secure like starter in the dark was the same day was drafted by them them. So we start this thing together. Where wars team in the League but with Mike Findlay we went from the worst in the League to conference finals against the Spurs hours? You know what I mean like. We took a big jump in six years that I think like the city kind of grew with us does though that was super. Burn dirt gig better right. We they saw US grew up before the eyes from not just like the we became legitimate players. But you know we were close like we dirk got. We've lost the San Antonio and Dirk hurt missed to gaze. We won woul without loss for to blow a write in it right. Ah like we almost went to the finals from the worst team in the league and they saws both go from being killed To give you this I was like a little bit of a special..

"Get in the mix with Hennessy and the knuckleheads remember always drink responsibly. Never stop never set so I WANNA go back to the beginning right because you're de play pro soccer like did you start playing basketball. I do naturally just like with our. Obviously I know you're sick. You still are sick at Soccer Davos. Thank you appreciate you spreading the good word for me. My parents are from the UK from London. My Mom's Welsh but grew up London by. I grew up in London soccer player so when we moved to Canada was it wasn't even a year old eleven months I think and so my dad didn't even know nothing about basketball so I grew up playing soccer hockey because we are in Canada. A baseball look box Lacrosse to play chess in elementary school. Like for whatever reason I don't even know why did that but I played all everything I play everything you could play and then when I got to the eighth grade I went to. I can see where I grew up in Canada. Junior high was grades. Eight nine. Ten High Schools was eleven. Twelve is so. I went to eighth grade at a new school. And all the jocks so to speak they were playing on the playground everyday played basketball and it was like right around the time the first air Jordans came out mike was doing commercials with Spike Lee and it was like this super cool time to get involved like the love the game and so I was thirteen eighteen. The kids wanted a ball at my school basketball so I played basketball in. Eighth grade still played soccer hockey. Like on like the city select team whatever which is a pretty big commitment but after that year I fell in love with basketball so much that I just stopped playing soccer and hockey unlike the club team so to speak and I was in just played hoops every day after that to be with my friends but also because I did I totally fell in love with him. Yeah the day of one hundred percent. That's what you SAM. Most of the time is and it's it's weird to think back but especially Ashley grown up in Canada. You didn't get as much the. SPN was young man. I late eighties woman. I'd had have been. I would have been thirteen so I would have been eighty seven. ESPN was probably young. I can't remember what it found it but we didn't have in Canada so we get like college basketball and ABC ABC CBS. Whatever it was right? Yeah we get one or two. NBA Games a week. But you never know league pass. I used to record record on a vhs all the games take stuff from everybody. Just go out in the school yard by my house and just try to recreate it so so. When did you start getting recruited in highschool by colleges? A really doesn't even count in a sense. But I started I think in the ninth tenth grade getting recognized recognized by Canadian like colleges near me but I didn't I got one scholarship offer to play Division One basketball by Santa Clara. I'm and when can I got that offer. Like they came like it was nobody really. It was weird actually to be honest I played on the junior national team the the summer going into my senior year and we played Long Beach State. They came up to Canada. We played a series with them and I played really well and they had Lucious Harris Okay Ryan Russell. They had like three or four guys to play in the league. And I did really well came. The batch had a good game after the game. Coaches came over or like we you know we gotta have you down for a visit. I think there were also like you know. There's a l a school. There's this little skinny white kid from Canada like they were hyped in the moment moment but then they never followed up right house like. Wow that was my chance. I actually played well and it never amounted to anything and then so I somehow oh Santa Clara I'd heard about me in. The coach came up to watch me play my in our like provincial tournament like the State Championship so to speak. He took me out to lunch after like our first round game or whatever and he offered me a scholarship basically on the spot but that was it and so I I said okay. Can I come and see the school on a visit and then signed but that was it. I had one so into your into my senior year. They come up. I probably would've but you wrote letters to other causes. My High School coach sent tapes subst schools like Bigger Schools University of Washington which is right by where I grew up to duke. Everybody in between and you know I think it's just like the quality of the tape the quality of the competition. I like no never seen him. Why reading go up there? Like Oh dear this university of Washington's and Duke and everybody in between like little Steve. Nash was writing. y'All letters the future future two time. VP first ballot. H. O. F.. He was China is actually not that uncommon. Like if you think about it we all develop a different stages stuff true like Steph. Father played in the League point in Virginia Tech. They didn't want to like I don't know how many scholarships Abadi ended up at Davidson co I Leonard. He's a wanted to go to do you right so right like Eh scholarship offers but he ended up being a kid San Diego state you know like he's at the top of the state. Where did you WANNA go? I WANNA I. Oh where did you really want to go to be honest. In some ways I wanted to go to University of Washington because it was close and like we. We had local Seattle TV where we were so Seehofer also like. Don't get me wrong like I would've gone to any of the big TV on a Saturday. Right yeah you know do Carolina Align Syracuse. Ucla like whatever it is Louisville like all these schools are on TV at the time. I would've been happy to go to any of them and it's you know everyone has story but when you got to you got to work for the spot. The spot Wang given to you and you had to work to play like who's used it was it was worse than that when I got the Senate and like I said we all develop at different stages and I was still like underdeveloped physically. We've got to Santa Clara. We had a great point guard. John Woolery came from Fairfax High School. Here in La. John struggled shooting the ball otherwise he was an MBA guard like he was like quick. Long arms great defender Penetrate Pass. He was such a great mentor. Mentor to me in a sense one by like when I came there my freshman year playing in the summer playing before season he was ripping me three the court all the time. Aw when I was a guy that like like lived off my hand or like I was proud of my handle. And there's this guy that's like taking the ball for me. I was like this is crazy what I want oh to play in the NBA. Like even though I had one scholarship I really wanted to play in the NBA. And I thought I could do it and I I like had this kind of plan that I can do this and I'll get there one day but it's an awakening meaning when you go to a school you'd almost never heard of really hadn't heard of it until they recruited me.

I learned from him because of his without lettuces against that every every day taking the ball from learning. And so what happened was we started the season as backup. I played like ten minutes a game and then at Christmas he had a scope and his knee and so he missed like three or four games and I stepped in and played really really well and so they were like okay. Okay you'RE GONNA back John Up and you're going to play the backup to as well so I ended up playing by the end of thirty minutes a game and actually like Super Pat on the back but what was the conference tournament. MVP We made the big game and the game to go but like in like December that was impossible. Awesome all right like I grew. I grew a lot because it's not just the way he he. He pushed me the and challenged me but he also accepted me right like when I got better. He wasn't like he was like. You're are getting better and we need you like go. Go go like go to work and you have to have people like that some steps of your career right like Michael Finley for me and dirt. He was gee..
