"They are the co hosts of the knuckleheads podcast Quentin Richardson and Darius miles. The fellas just celebrated their 100th episode as podcasters. They had Vince Carter on for the occasion. Their show is always excellent. They get incredible guests. Everyone from Shaq and doctor J to Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Derek Jeter, Sue bird, if you are not already subscribed to the knuckleheads podcast, I encourage you to go do so.

That era was really only two years if you count the time that Darius miles was there before he was traded. So his two seasons didn't have a winning record, didn't make the playoffs, but they were young and brash, and fun as hell, Dan Lamar Odom, and Elton brand, Corey McGee, and of course our guys Quentin Richardson and Darius miles. And they just kind of captured the imagination. There was there was a moment. There was a clippers moment. It was fleeting, but it was there and it was really fun. It was really enjoyable to go back down memory lane about all that. That is also, of course, the team that spawned the iconic two fist taps to the head celebration that you've seen Q and Darius do or if you weren't there, go find it on YouTube. There's plenty of footage. That's of course how these guys came to name their show, the knuckleheads podcast, where did that gesture come from? What does it mean? It was a mystery for a very long time. They will explain. We also hit on a bunch of other topics, including Dylan Brooks, flagrant foul of Gary Payton the second the other night was the play dirty just reckless, both Q and Darius had a very strong opinion on the matter. Before we get to all that, a quick reminder, please rate review, subscribe to the crossover wherever you get your podcasts and hit me with all your feedback on Twitter at Howard Beck. Okay, my.

Good morning here in Southern California. Laura, how are you? I am. Well, thank you for bringing me on, Did you? You get a chance to watch the t honest block last night? Sorry.

Laura's got her headphones on now ready to go. Do you see the honest block last night? Where were your thoughts? I'm not. Look, Ben. I'm going to be honest, I'm not much of a basketball. I have a little bit of PTSD with basketball. Was forced to play. I wasn't very good. I refuse to watch it because it just brings back very awful memory. I thought you were gonna say we're kindred spirits with he had PTSD because I'm a Knicks fan, So I was just seeing so much terrible basketball. No. Over the years I watched myself and I just That's all I needed. That's all I need. Well, the play last night, I think will live on in NBA history. And I think it is going to be a turning point in the series. Um Because the finals are defined by those moments, and you know last night that moment just to seal the deal for Milwaukee, who was down big and and slowly but surely came back. Middleton was outstanding. And if I'm Phoenix, I got my bounce back game from Booker. I kept eating out of foul trouble. Drew holiday struggled from the field and it wasn't enough. The others have to show up for Phoenix. You know, I think back to great role playing performances throughout NBA history. You think of Mike Miller in Game five for Miami. I think he hit seven threes. You think John Paxson in 93 that final play in Phoenix? A Game six were all five members of the Chicago Bulls touch the ball on the last possession in the game and packs and gets the wide open three. We all know the Steve Kerr shot. In the finals, I believe was 97 for the Chicago Bulls. Role players often times to find the NBA Finals. You have moments like last night with Yannis, but Its competence. Three down the stretch. Big time big time shot from Pat. The others for Phoenix have to show up. Chris Paul struggling. He's got drew holiday on him. Follow Tami beer. He's a great writer for Forbes covers basketball at a high level. He had a great staff. Drew holiday has been the primary defender on Chris Paul for a total of 78 possessions during the NBA Finals, and Chris is forced Seven turnovers. Comparison. Dennis Schroder guarded CP three for 83 possessions in the first round, and Chris Paul only committed one turnover. So this isn't just Chris Paul heading a mental block running out of steam at 36, the plant based diet, not panning out. No, it's none of that. Chris is competing at a high level, and I know his wrist has given him some problems that shoulder he's banged up, but Chris Paul is a gamer. Through holidays, just playing some excellent defense. And it's the reason why he's and all league defender. He's on Team USA three guys in this game on Team USA. Devin Booker, Chris Middleton and drew Holiday. And the American men's basketball team looks all out of whack. I know they waxed Argentina the other day, it doesn't matter. They look like a mess. They don't look like they have any continuity there playing timid and I think they can take a page out of what the women are doing. The W N B A All Star game last night was fantastic. And Team USA hit a wall against the W N B a all stars, and that's going to motivate them heading to Tokyo. To watch. Brianna Stewart, Brittney Griner, Sue Bird, Skylar Diggins Smith. That's a squad and it's because they've been playing together for a long time. So just imagine if back in February at the All Star Game if we got team USA versa, collection of NBA all stars from around the world. Have been a better All Star game, and it would have been better for Team USA as they try to figure things out before the Olympics in Tokyo without half their team after team still in the NBA finals, so kind of a mess on the men's side of things I know they beat up on Argentina the other day, but I'm not giving.

I i wanna give you just some things that are happening around the league that we're probably not going to touch on very much in this episode. But it's laser clarendon officially signed with the minnesota lynx. Nearly got a game winning shot but put on put the wnba on notice that they are a force to be reckoned with. I've talked about leisure. Clarendon on this podcast. Before didn't feel that he was the perfect fit for the new york liberty but was very impressed by her game in the rubble to see that. Leisure clarendon was then. Unceremoniously waved by the new york. Liberty was a bit of a shocker But as leisure said on their social media You can't bury a seed. All they're gonna do is grow. I mean leisure. Didn't add that last part but i because that's how sees work like he put him in the ground and then they sprout k. My beautiful sports fans in particular. My women's basketball fans. Obviously is your host eric lindsay. Yala coming and you might hear that audio a little bit different i'm according this For thursday's show thursday june third. I originally recorded this episode and was prepared to have it air on tuesday. And i've ernie eluded in this show that you know. I missed last thursday. I've now missed tuesday. And i'm gonna be honest and i talked about this a little bit later in the show but i've been very impacted by a conversation around nio miyasaka. I sang. she wouldn't do media. Which has now led to withdrawing. And so first and foremost. I want to just say that i i wanna again. I feel like i've done this before. But i want to wrap my virtual arms around those who are being impacted by the conversation about mental health and wellness. I we've talked about on the show before that. That's just not language that i grew up using and i'm starting to realize that i was conditioned not to and and i'm still trying to find the language that fits how i feel about things so first and foremost Giving you virtual hugs or high fives or whatever is comfortable for you to let you know that. I'm in your corner the second instead i'm grappling with not just within the context of within the context of myself what it means to set boundaries and limitations to be up front. And if we're being honest sometimes finding those boundaries means that you have to hit your wall. And i'm definitely realizing that. And so i want to be transparent. I know that we live in a world that has expectations. And i understand that fully and it is not my intention to cheat you of anything. It is not my intention to take advantage of the support that you give me. All of locked on women's basketball and the lockdown podcast network but because of nile miyasaka. I'm realizing that sometimes my inability to meet my expectations to meet the expectations that that are required in this business is has something to do. It's related to what we're seeing with. Naomi so i just wanted to put that out there and i maybe this is resonate with some people. Maybe it won't. But i just wanted to put out there and i'm using my words carefully because i found naomi having to apologize was a little bit harsh. I get it because we have a system. That has these expectations. But i don't feel personally. That one should apologize for putting themselves first. And i've done that for many years and so you won't hear me apologize but you will hear me say that it is never my intention to cheat you. It is never my intention to take advantage of you. And i hope you respect and appreciate that and i hope if that message resonates that that you here were you hear someone else say it and and hopefully that will empower you and inspire you to do what you need to do that.

"We're That we were got points for that. Foreseeable future. All right, we've got baseball tonight. By the way, we were talking in the Idot bullpen a little earlier about Phil Mickelson winning at age 50. And by the way, I that driving, biking or walking responsibly really is a matter of life or death. Learn more through social media, life or death. Illinois dot com. You believe that winning at 50 today? Especially in golf is not As big a deal as it's made out to be because of training and nutrition and no Yeah, We're seeing Tom Brady doing in the high level when I thought that he was going to be done right when he was over. The Patriot just said that's should be yet, But he continues on because he feels good. Peyton Manning all the way to the end felt good. We mentioned Sue Bird earlier who's in our forties that's still being able to play at a high level. It's It's kind of cool because Where we're seeing with health and nutrition cap. It just shows you that no matter how old you are, If you still have a motor and several willing to do it, man going out there, do it. I've never looked at Phil Mickelson said. Well, that's an old timer getting it done. Nothing. A senior tour player. That's Phil Mickelson agree he and Tiger held up golf for a long time. The battle people like there was a magic Larry Bird element to those two battling, going back and forth and help the sport greatly. Yes, he's been in a drought trying to win a major, but he still Phil Mickelson. He's still alive, right and he looks good, Danny said. He changed the way he diets and exercises and his brother said, I'm just telling you He's not old Tom Morris, the guy in the 18 hundreds. He's just not that's 50 in the 18 hundreds I mean, just old and decrepit, wearing a wool suit trying to golf. That's how they golfed in suits. Yes, act then. Could you explain why the gentleman's game? I see that's the way they talked about it. In fact, did you ever watch the movie with Shyla? Buff? Um, the greatest game ever played? Haven't seen that awesome movie. And in the movie, it's about Francis. We met the amateur that wins the U. S open and, like 19, or whatever. And he beats Harry Vardon, who's like Mickelson, one of the few to win and three decades. They play in student certain time. Why, though, Because it was a gentleman's game back then it's a gentleman's game Now. Won't you watch? Watch it? It's not Germans game down, not always. Because it depends where you play with, right. The little different. Would you play in the suit today? No. I'd love to see that a good small swing in the jacket. No shot the old checkered jacket at the tweed jacket with the patches on the arm. No shot. Come on, man. How much would that hinder your swing now? And a jacket that fits you cause that your jet Your suits are custom fit. How would that work today? That'd be tough. Get it done Good, full swing. How about on the party? How about putting in a full suit and a full suit? Dress shoes? The whole deal? How about wolf? What do you mean That 95 degree day? I don't understand these people. Back then what I mean there's I guess Polyester was not around right? They could have something that felt good in the summer. So everything was wool. All everything you wore was wall. Well, underwear, too, right? Did she Vary it because otherwise, if everything was wool, what else would you wear as undergarment back then? Wool socks can imagine your feet itched. It was 90 degree weather. Yes, wearing like when wearing winter socks on the golf course. Think about that brutal like they're not out plain and shorts. Did you have to have the wool cap to you have to have a cap while you're watching. They all wore those little like Like like, you know, Driver had like the newspaper boy. Yeah. Newsboy hat. That's just see. This is why this old timer looked like what he did when he was 50. Yeah, but what was the average age of your life span? Back then 51. Yeah, Pretty close like that guy was near death when he was playing Come on, cap means that that's why I look at Mickelson's like he doesn't look 50 to me. No people always made fun of the way he looked and just like he did not. And you know what? You can always change and he felt like, how can I continue to be on the tour? How can I change my game? The only issue ever had with Mickelson is just that sometimes in big moments, he would have the yips like here. I told you before camp. It's hard for me to bash any golfer because I know how hard that is. It's difficult where you have to have the presence of mind to be able to get it done. Every time we take the course that's hard to do your walking the 18 holes. And then on top of that, I don't know how it reacts. By the way people talk about the you know all the crowd that was around and how they were rallying behind Phil, and they're pushing him. You're not gonna push me, man. I'm locked in trying to make sure I finish us out. So I don't screw it up again and you're pushing me You're not doing that, He said it was a little You know, he was a little nervous there. But he said it was amazingly cool to be part of that You could be behind me, but don't push me. Yeah. And then, of course, the South Carolina Not enough not enough security to protect Phil Mickelson, The guy that's on his way to win. The tournament actually wins it, but there's not enough security. Let me get out there. Be plenty. You imagine hoods up and it is for me. I said Stop! There'll be enough like I don't need you pushing me now you can root for me but you but you can't Not really pushing me around the course. So one of our great listeners Vicky McHenry on you, either. By the way, how would you like that? No, I don't think knowing you. I don't think you'd like that very much getting pushed around, You know, but I would love to have been in that pack. That was awesome, man. That That's like about Phil Mickelson. I'm getting a picture of that scene of me walking with all that behind me. Oh, it was awesome. If we feel good again, Vicki McHenry, Who's a P one of our show? Yes, she tweeted yesterday. Hey, at Giza Vermin. How's that for your major? Take that shot. No law firm there. I'll say no more. Let your coworkers deal with you in the morning and she put a screen shot out of some of the biggest names in the freaking sport all over the leaderboard yesterday that you read my response to you just want to paint a one sided picture before you pop off. If I finished just asking if you were going, I don't know. Go ahead song Very important to the show on the picture. She has Mickelson Capita. Padraig Harrington's huge Paul Casey. Huge Maura College, the defending champ, John Rahm, who you liked going into that term, Micro John. We played really well down the stretch. Danny says. Hey, Vicky. Doesn't this prove my point? Didn't I say that golfs on Lee interesting when the big name players are atop the leaderboard? I'm pretty sure that is exactly what I said. Hash tag listening is a skill. Oh, Job, Danny Any firing off on Vic..

"Yesterday. My friend Jonathan Hood. I felt like I was the day sports officially returned. Watching that scene. As Phil Mickelson hit his approach shot to the green on 18, and it is a mass of humanity Following him up the fairway. There's no way security could hold everyone off reminded me of Tiger Woods in Chicago. In the Western Open several years ago, but that that was so freaking cool and then watch the Knicks game and MSG alive. I mean, it was what a weekend of sports How are you? I'm well, thank you because there's so much to talk about trying to get all in By 10 O'clock when we cross talk with Carmen, your co, but you know the distinguishing characteristic about that How you feel about sports Returning officially, you know the common denominator. Fans. Yep. Fans. It was incredible because these events by themselves think about Phil Mickelson walking 18 by himself. With no crowd correct. Think about Derrick Rose and the Knicks and Madison Square Garden as if we haven't seen that already. By the way, nobody at the garden, But yet you see a great battle between the Hawks and the Knicks last night, right? Yep. You think about the ST Louis Cardinals and Cubs game yesterday, where it was full capacity. But you could tell the people on the edge of their seats. Even with a 00 game, always through until the ninth, something at Yankee Stadium for the White Sox. The differences is the fans. We have talked to athletes over the years, captain have said. You know the fans? They're just so fickle. You know, I could just play in empty stadiums. You had the opportunity to do that. And now some players have been like, Yeah, just the atmosphere didn't seem the same mental health all this stuff like I don't feel like I have an audience watching me. They went through this in the pandemic and then But the reason why it felt good to you is because there are people there was interest, not social media. Put that to the side we're talking about. Fans. You could see fans that were there cheering fans that led the adulation at the top of their lungs, screaming for good things to happen for their favorite player or their favorite teams. That's why it felt good this weekend. It was something else to see 15,000 at Madison Square Garden. Amazing game and I'm cheering for the Knicks, and I want tips to make a little bit of a run. I don't think their rosters that good but He's done a great job coaching that team. Trey Young with them incredible shot to win the game. Yeah, they're unafraid the Atlanta Hawks. They're not afraid. Anybody not afraid. Now they score in Bunches and and they make the coaching change and McMillan's get that team on the right path. It's gonna be a good, serious great series, so There was a lot of really good basketball weekend. Hockey playoffs are just incredible theater and watching a double overtime game yesterday with my son. Then we've got Nicholson on a TV. And thank you. Can this guy actually pull this off? He was 200 to 1 if you'd better before Thursday, 201 You imagine that saying, Yeah, Throw $100 on you. Wow. I think the reason why, if you have that disposable income to throw money at Mickelson is because what brought Gulf to a crescendo it was Tiger versus Phil. We've forgotten about film. There's a reason why he has not been in this spot as far as we await major, says 2013. It's been awhile for for film. But he's still viable. As a matter of fact, on Thursday and Friday. We're watching the warm ups and we're watching the early part of that tournament and we're I'm pointing out to you, Eric, There's Phil. You see a lot of this film, but no. You gotta watch him because you don't know if it's gonna be great or disaster. Correct. See, Here's what happened to Phil Mickelson. And the reason why that this is a great story this morning. Is because Phil Mickelson was a guy that just was failing and big moment. What do you know that he should be short handed in winning tournaments, and there would be this time where he would just have the yips on 16 17, and there he's losing the lead ends up losing Some people. I think lost faith in Mickelson, but for him to be able to come through like we saw old school Mickelson do. I think that people look at that story and say, Wow, look at the guy that used to be great was able to capture another major. So I was following Tina Mickelson, his sister on Twitter. She's a golf pro and She puts out to golf videos. Very cool stuff. She tweets yesterday. Have to show you all the text from Mom as the final round is going on, Tina Text, Phillip and tell him Just a par in Don't hit bombs or activate cabs. Just par. They'll have to catch him. He won't listen to his mother. Do you text them? Hurry. And she said, I'll text him. Of course. That's his caddy and his brother. He's the only one Phil is listening to today. And then she said, while you guys were busy on the golf course last week at a family dinner, we're all sitting around, and Phil says I had a complete break through an epiphany today I will win soon. Him the caddy. I can attest to that He's playing his best golf in awhile. Today was not as shocking as it might have seemed. Cool Is that that he believed, like, Felt like I've been here. I'm ready to do this. And then he goes and wins a major again all the best feel that way, right? They always feel they can get it done. Right this way. I always have. I got to lean into some of the old veterans on there. We talk about Lee Westwood one. Will you ever win a major, right? My golf experience is complete. If that guy wins a major, because that's where the weird things about his career where he's had some great moments, But it was able never able to get it done. You know, the big story line that we continue to read about is like, Oh, Phil Mickelson does it. Cappie doesn't at age 50. It's 50 today in sports. Really? When you think about it, they make it seem like this guy's ancient right. And so who's that old Tom Morris? Right? Tom Moore? He didn't age 48. Jr put that picture, please, on cabbage, a hood on Twitter on instagram so everyone could see old Tom Morris. And by the way, I don't think he was born old Tom Morris as this his nickname Old Correct at age 48, he looks 80. He looks like he looks like J. R is about the fact that I got the long beard that's adopt Jr. He's got the long beard. He's kind of like at age 48. They didn't have the medicine. They didn't have the vitamins for you so you could look as good as training. Right? Well, Trading was going up a hill. Exactly, but he looks 80 old Tom Morris. So when you look at film To fill at age 50. That's not the story that the story is for him to come from where he was 2013 long time right for him to be able to win a major. Today. We've got Tom Brady in his forties. Can he have done yes. Sue Bird in the WN Ba Who's 40, in which the parents of some of her teammates says all I remember you When you first started, it makes her feel even older. Suzu birds 40. No, we drew Brees just retired. Peyton Manning played a long time. I don't I don't look at age anymore, Cap. I look at age only if the accomplishment is great..

"Here on no conan presented by the jeanine agency. Ten forty two time Just a couple of minutes left here but wanna get into this conversation with brady whole host of the whole show. We talked a little bit about it. You talk about on your program. Yesterday brady Megan rubino is. She's an interesting woman. And i think that's putting it mildly with some of the remarks that she's made talking about the the gap you know the wage discrepancy between women athletics and men the quote and obviously coming after draymond green. And that's your. That's your poll. Question today is simply the now. Do you watch. Do you watch women's sports. Seventy seventy seven percent of the whole organs voting on this say no and this is not a. This isn't a question. I'm asking to say to be to be sexist or anything like that. It is purely a study a case study because if the viewership sonata this is economics here it's basic gives. Viewership is not up for women's sports soccer. Wnba whatever then. Advertising isn't going to go up then your money to individual players going to go up. That's how it is. There's no equal pay. Thing is absolutely absurd to talk about now in hollywood. This study came out like ten years ago that there were girls such as scarlet so johannesen and stuff. They were grossly underpaid compared to rubber done junior and such that i can get on board with a little more and say all right. Well doing the same movies If they're if they're drawing the save widows coming out that that rocks it and she's still getting way less but it it. It should be when you talk about marketing when you talk about capitalism. I know sometimes. That's a bad word to people. But that's how you grow your sports. Instead of fighting for equal pay. They need to be fighting for more people to watch. How do we get more people in our right right. And you know. That's the example that i said you know if i if i lost every advertiser on this program i now there'd be a new host in here on monday and i wouldn't i'd i'd be out of a job. It is basic business. But i don't think that the way to go about it and the fact that we are sitting here talking about it and saying we're having say again here were not be. We talked about the fact that they've made it. Such a hostile is extremely hawks. Rhetoric exchange between anybody on it. It's an issue and we were talking about i. I love watching the ufc you asked. Why did ronda rousey become so popular. She was incredible And she was doing things that we In the ufc had not seen any other women do and they marketed the hell out of but they just started do that when she started to do these incredible she wasn't coming forward and saying she wasn't inviting anybody. She's going out there doing her job and it came with it she she was marketable. She went on the late night. Shows things like that now made a newness. I is is the best of all time but i. I talked about this yesterday. The pool of great athletes for men is deeper than the pool of great athletes for women. And that's not a sexist comment that that drives me absolutely nuts. because it's not a sexist comment. The fastest man in the world is a lot faster than the fastest woman in the world. You'd look it up if you don't believe me it is the truth could ronda. Rousey beat the hell out of average people like us. Yeah because they beat us in a race. Yes but we're talking the superior athletes. Because you i wash you. And i don't watch sit in the plus lawyer. I go out there and sit and watch. I'm not gonna watch because it's a bunch of overweight guys drinking. That's not entertaining. What i wanna watch is seven. Bonders down the floor and don't get in their face. Shaquille o'neal suggested candace parker one of seven women to dunk the basketball in the wnba in its history. One of seven he asked should they lower the rim so that women can dunk the ball because a lot of people watch basketball because of the dunks great so well. It's one of the most exciting plays in sports. I mean the the donkeys and sponsor. That was not great right longer. Receivers very annoyed. She quickly shut it down and said no no and then she guaranteed that her daughter would be dunking. Someday and she might candace parker dunk it she might dunk it but that would be eight. You're eight now if you're not willing to try to make your sport more appealing then you're losing if you're going to businesses and begging for money and saying well lebron james gets more money. Why can't candace parker more money. Because more people are watching lebron jobs. So how do we get more people to watch. Candace parker draymond green came. He's a supporter of the wnba big time supporter but he came at him with facts and meghan comes out in ripped him to shreds. And this is you just you just. He's on the platform. Talking and people are listening. Now you and. I are talking about on our local radio shows. That's what that's what you should be doing. How do we get more people involved. You're volleyball fan right. You are a big volleyball fan. I am so right. There shows you the local. I don't know if you're watching national volleyball on. Tv but local. You like of course a lot of people volleyball and this is why it's so good. Yeah well and that's absolutely the case we're talking with a whole host of the whole show Talking about the women's sports an and the pay discrepancy and that side of it comes down to basic economics but being a divisive voice is not how you get this done. Just saying you know what we need to make more. 'cause equal opportunity does not result in equal outcome. There's two different things. They've got equal. Opportunity go out there and provide the best product available. Go out there. Finals niche sponsors. That you're looking for and try and grow it that way. Don't just come on and complain and say well. We deserve this. This and this it comes off as entitled and it comes off in rubs people around way. Now i will say this segment. The rhetoric around women's sports sometimes is very well. That doesn't that doesn't eliminate sexist more right. There are sexists absolutely there are absolutely. Are they come out there. And and and you know they'll be great softball play. That will make the sportscenter top ten. I'll see it on social media. And then i'll go to the comments just see and it's terrible it's like why are we watch that right and that is not. That's not the people that are. I think that's still the minority. I think there are people who respect what women do in the sports world and there's ways to improve it and grow upon it but i don't think what megan were pinos. Doing is is going to help. She was again. Here's an opportunity here you. The women's soccer team was popular is popular right. All of those you could recognize about four or five of those women. I can realize them more than i would. Anybody that was on the men's soccer. And of course and i don't you know the the women was amazing but instead of embracing that you know she obviously she's very political the she kind of pushed the american flag to the side. She claimed she wasn't trying to disrespect it but it was awkward. It was strange what you just did. Was you lost a giant portion of people that were watching and getting into because of the way you're talking again. She's extremely political. And we talk about this all the time as people want somewhat politics sports. Some don't well the nba. The nfl can survive those hits. They are have. I mean some people are still saying. They're not watching they don't they weren't watching anyway. The wnba cannot know. Women's soccer cannot same argument with. Nhl how do you market nhl players to raise it to that next year. Because you know there's there's a group die hard. Nhl fans that make it work but now people are jumping on the avalanche bus. Because they're good right. they're competitive. But how do you market people and get them to become the face of the league and face of your organization so that you can sell more tickets. And i don't think they do a good job at that and yes we could possibly take somebody to invest more money to do that because you have to spend money to come back and try and make it at some point but there's not that one person that everybody loves right sue bird may be for the wnba You know but but what megan renault did.

And that's despite the fact that Republicans at least those he's met with have been pushing a much smaller deal worth about $618 billion. Inviting is saying that there is enough support for the general aid that is needed in this, like the vaccine distribution the money for small businesses, he says. That's going to get Republicans on board. The other thing that he never wavered but is potentially looking to move on. Here is the stimulus checks. So Biden is insisting that the stimulus checks be $1400. He says he won't change the dollar amount and that per person. He did indicate he'd be willing to get those checks to a smaller group of Americans than in his original proposal, so that could be one place where there is a little bit of room to negotiate. Now, at the end of the day. Democrats don't need Republican votes. They say they want them on board. Republican signaling much today about what they could compromise on. Well, that's the reality. We heard more of its own of resignation from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about the fact that Democrats are moving forward with this process, too passive stimulus proposal with a simple majority, meaning they wouldn't eat any Republicans on board. They are still emphasizing that they want to make a deal. We're hearing from leadership on both House in the Senate that there is a desire to pass something bipartisan. Elevated finger pointing at you know the current leadership, and some of it is saying, we understand that there is a need for some of these provisions like vaccine distribution of money for small businesses. So the question really is it There will be any sort of in between reached as they move this through this budget reconciliation process if they would waver on current proposal, and it is really important to note that some moderate Democrats Are also expressing reservations about some of what's in President Biden plan, notably Joe Mansion Senator from West Virginia is opposing this increase of the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour so they would need to have all Democrats on board. If he's not on board with the full plan that could pose issues for getting us through, and they would need those Republican votes. From a strategic standpoint, this early in an administration is when a president Could make concessions or take risks. You know, you have four years to when your voters back if you want reelection, but from what the president said today, kind of sounds like he's holding firm to his campaign promises he does. He really is sticking by the promises he made on the trail like the $2000 stimulus checks, like the money for state and local governments, and he's holding the line on this note this idea that Really The risk is that there isn't too much stimulus but too little and really that this is what's needed that he has the support of a broad range of economists and his Treasury secretary, Jenny Yellen is pushing this too. It doesn't look that bite of wants to really negotiate on the fact that a big proposal is needed and after bite and met with Senate Democrats today, the line that came out from that meeting was there is a need for a big, bold plan that they're going to do whatever they can to get that plan through NBC's Elizabeth Chelsea with us on Come on news from Washington, D.

Comeau news time. 5 36 Washington among the Western states hit hard by vaccine shortages. ABC is Alex Stone joins us on the coma news lined with details a supply shortage during the deadliest month yet Alex gauge problem being felt nationwide by the Rat West, really feeling it right now and over the weekend, Arizona's governor of telling CNN and It's been played over and over again, Doug Goose. He's saying they could do so much Mauritz. They just had the vaccine, something that they don't have in Arizona were in danger of running out of the vaccines We have. All we can do is distribute what we received from the federal government and from the private sector. So we're working with the Biden administration to get more vaccines. I should say they don't have enough there and then, of course, you've been reporting on Snohomish County and that the mass vaccination site said that have not been able to do what they were planning on doing today and tomorrow. Arrow, and they're saying to keep the faith that eventually people will get in will get their shot, even though it may not be today or tomorrow as planned, and we heard today from Motor noses CEO Dr Steven Hog, telling us that the company is sending out vaccine. Had a rapid pace that they're working on bottle next try to figure out how to get it out even faster. Here's what he's telling ABC in. One of the big challenges is this is moved from a science exercise to really an engineering one. Unlike any complicated supply chain, there are many steps and making a vaccine that you need to plan for. As you ramp up production, you run into bottlenecks, and what you need to do is attack those bottlenecks and develop solutions. And he says they are working to speed up the process, like putting more doses into each bottle that they have figured out that the fibers so doses in every bottle that they could do Nine doses eight or nine It takes the FDA to say, okay, you could do that, And they're working with the FDA to ask if they can put more doses, he says. They can make the vaccine quite rapidly. Would takes time is putting it into bottles, then putting it in the boxes and then shipping it out and getting it the states and then sending it out from there. So he says that they are working on that right now. I'm trying to figure out ways to speed up getting it out. But still, there are so many places Weatherby, Snohomish County or Maricopa County, or L, a county, where they're saying they just don't have enough right now. That is the confusing and confounding part of all this, Alex, whether it's a delivery issue or a manufacturing problem, and it sounds like it's all about delivery. Yeah, A lot of it is. And still, though, that the companies they promised to deliver 100 million doses each visor and Moderna in the U. S. By the end of March. They're going to need to make up with huge leaps if they're going did to make that goal being there doing about 4.3 million doses a week, according to Toe one tally. So they're they're coming up shorts. You've got that, plus the actual delivery delays. Then you've got states trying to figure out how to do all of this in some states are figuring out They're not very good at it. California now is hiring Blue Shield to come in and handle all of it that they have determined that as much as the governor's office thought that they could figure it out. That they are not experts in health care and tracking vials of vaccine and bringing people into administer it and setting it all up. So instead they're going to a third party and more and more states are beginning. Do that right now. The States air figuring out that They have not been very successful at in mass amounts getting this out once they get it and then making sure people get it in the arm. But it's there's a lot of trial and error going on right now. Unfortunately, more error than success in the in many cases, and they Weatherby, the state level the federal level that the actual manufacturers, they say they're trying to figure out how to speed it up.

Sue Bird's Basketball Evolution
"Shantelle just how important has sue bird been to the storm success this season I think she is that veteran leader for them. There aren't many players from see the floor like she does. down. Sue Bird is not just an amazing passer. She's also the beneficiary of having these four players around her who are excellent scores. Your. To. Pursue. I think what a great point guard does is they elevate the play of everyone around them and she does that and the players around her fish and so whether it is a two point, sixteen assists game or whether it's ten assists sixteen point game she's able to contribute and ways statistically that are really impressive Vegas. Church it over. comes. Down the lane also bird feed legs. And she said many times the season an assist. Players it's not just her I think stewing jewel were pretty much I R- and for me as a point guard out there trying to find the open player I. Like I said, I've always said this is a is a two-person thing tonight those played amazing and she so steady for them and she's so level and they kind of go as she goes in even when she wasn't able to play all the games for them the season I. Think. You know she is that due north for them in terms of bringing the team forward, and there aren't a lot of players in sports that have that personality both on and off the court for their team, and I think emotionally just the way she leads for this team i. think a moment that really sticks out to me from the season is in a semifinal series against the links Alicia Clark scored a game winning basket service shoots. Lucia Clark gets the huge offensive rebound puts it back in and the way that sue bird kind of raced her after that game she hugged her and like raptor hands around the leashes head. Goes. Yup Seattle the number two seed. With an eighty eight, eighty, six, win over. There's so much respect not just for on the team but the way she respects the other teammates around her and I think they feel that and they see that when what would you say jumps out most you when you watch her play at this point in her career I, think the way that she anticipates that's what makes her so good in. So effective as a point, there are times when it's like, she can know exactly how many strides Brianna Stewart is. Going to need to get to a certain place and she gets the ball there. So that Brianna Stewart if she's taking four steps with her long stride down the court, she catches the ball exactly where she needs to exactly and shooting form and she can go up with it. So nothing more terrifying imagine for an opposing coach than seeing sue pick dribble at like the free throw line and getting ready to launch it down court because it's kind of like. Well, that's going to be a bucket because she's able. to, anticipate and see the floor in a way that defenses can't stop. You can put yourself in good position but the game is constantly moving and her ability at Xuan dissipate and know where and how her players want the ball. It's unmatched.
WNBA Finals Game 1 Recap
"Anyone who follows man on twitter knows I'm I'm Elliott born and raised a dire laker fan there in the NBA finals right now? Tonight Lakers went up to on the Miami. Heat Lebron James Scores. Thirty three points with a double double Anthony Davis then your triple-double Anthony Davis it gets fourteen boards on route to a double breese Stewart was the best basketball player on the planet tonight wasn't even close and many NBA analysts would agree with me. This was. Honestly in your opinion, the years we've been covering the WNBA where does research performance night rank? WNBA performances you've watched. I, think, let's say in the last five years. Legitimately and this this includes. This includes all the Toronto stuff we've seen although all the game winning shots we've seen I think. The more dominant stretch from a player we've seen was about six minutes of sue bird. In the suber game. and. That was all so much that was from the perimeter and what brief Stewart does from all over the floor. She's just unstoppable in the post she's unstoppable and she's moving the ball. She's unstoppable from outside I. Think She's the Best Player we've seen blade this. I. A blanket A. Challenge anyone to come at me. If we're going by your five year window, she's doing this in the finals and that's where it matters the most and she's doing it off of an injury last year and I think every team in the league in a fantasy draft of players. If they redraft the whole league I think she's the consensus number one. I mean I believe there was a League's playoff game or Sylvia fells did the twenty, eight, twenty, nine. And that was impressive. Obviously I, think you're doing wholescale. Finals given context late, Adela done pushing her team to a championship on a non-functioning spine. Israeli something. This was a game where Seattle walked in as a two seed but was basically the odds on favourite given the strength and they were really. The biggest thing you needed was were we going to get what we had advertise from the stars you and I have been championing jewell Loyd this entire playoffs you've been consistently calling her future finals, MVP, Jewell, Loyd and. She. Is Hard to yeah. Looked at just her line in the box. Tonight you'd be like we're almost there. But like but but she definitely converted. Sue Bird breaks the single game. Finals assist record was one shy of the record at halftime. And why should we be shocked Meghan Rubino just wrote a player's Tribune column all about it. But. This was also a team up against Vegas team that definitely is is building their bulletin material. They have something to prove they going to hilarious run in the third quarter after being down seventeen at the half, they tied it up with a minute left in the third, a couple Julius free make it a two point game. It's a one basket game heading into the fourth quarter of finals, and it's at that exact point to restore. Basically said guys, why don't you go ahead and take a seat? Mama's got it taken care of she scored the first eleven points of the quarter and I don't mean the storms, I eleven points I mean the first eleven points of the quarter end you know that because espn was some real nincompoops and put up the graphic. That had fourth quarter points brief steward. Eleven. Las. Vegas. Aces zero as if anyone needed to know she categorically took over the game I mean this is the classic like great player mentality of. I have figured out the two three things I absolutely need to do and I'm just going to do them, and if you think you can stop it go ahead and try. But I know what I'm dealing with here and you brought up the context the ability to do that after. Technically. We're at this point for the storm twenty, two regular season games plus three semifinal games plus this she's twenty six games still into her WNBA. Return
WNBA Finals: How Did We Get Here
"China it's great to have you back on ESPN daily. Thanks for having me. Pablo good to be here with you. It's been a while but I kind of want to ask you about what time has been like for you. Since we last talked because this WNBA season, it was a truncated twenty, two games a sprint that started in late. July. So does it feel like the finals or here already like so soon or is it kind of leg? The finals are here at last after forever it's finally happening. It kind of feels like the finals are here at last because you gotta think the conversation around whether or not. There was even going to be a WNBA season started in like March, right? When sports was shut down. So we thought we were going to have a thirty four or thirty, six game season. There was supposed to commissioners, but it didn't seem like at one point there was going to be a season at all. So you have to tip your hat to the wnba Players Association and the WNBA Commissioner Cathy. Engelbert because they were able to create this bubble in braided in Florida Zero Positive Corona virus tests at a lot of fun basketball. So but here we are finally in the finals. Yes, and we are at the top of the mountain and so for those who aren't in the know China, how did these two teams get here? Very different path. So Fiat came into the season. I would say the favourite amongst boasts because they were getting sue bird back into their lineup. They were bringing back a steward both players Miss Todd, last season of due to injury, and this was the Seattle storm team that despite not having those two players not only did they make the playoffs last season but they actually one game of the playoffs. Also keeping in mind that there were Wnba opt-outs I believe that four of the top five vote-getters from last year for MVP did not play this season just a little bit different looking landscape than we may have expected coming into twenty twenty wnba states or a pandemic wnba season. Should I say? Las Vegas Aces were interesting case they were picked to finish fourth preseason. Now, Bill Beer has a ton of talent on his team I mean a number of number one picks lottery picks. He added Angel Cartridge this season, which is a huge acquisition after she of last year. So you know we knew that Vegas would be good I. Don't think we knew that they were going to be finals good but the play of the MVP. Asia Wilson has been incredible this year and you just have to tip your hat to what Vegas has done. Yes. So Asia Wilson is who I wanted to follow up with you about because she won the MVP. This season Brianna Stewart finished second in two thousand eighteen stewart was the MVP and Wilson was the number one overall pick in the rookie of the year. So we have this collision of stars, Legit Stars, and what do you expect to see out of the battle between them? I four both I just think it's fantastic for us to get a sneak peek into what the future of the WNBA is going to be over the next ten years. Asia Wilson Umbrian to Stewart are the future of the WNBA and Brianna Stewart obviously has already wanted wnba championship. She's been in MVP and you see Asia Wilson really coming into her own as as a player in this league but when you look at the Style of these players Brian Stewart six four can shoot the three incredibly versatile likes to play in space moves well, without the ball Asia will on the other hand she's going to play fifteen feed in likes to bang very physical. A ton of an one plays and I think that's what made as Wilson's performance this year. So oppressive is that you know that she wants to score fifteen feet in, but you cannot stop her. So you mentioned before that Radha to Stewart Sue bird injured in two thousand, nineteen year before that Seattle had one at all and it feels like they're stronger for their path year. So the bench on this team clearly has to be super important. How deep is it? Oh, they're incredibly deep I believe sue bird said at one point that they had an entire starting lineup coming off of the Bitch 'cause they could essentially start their second five at any given game. Now, keeping in mind that Seattle is going to be without Sammy Wickham in the finals and I think that's a huge loss for them because she's a big spark plug is a streaky but can be a great three point shooter but you know when you look at the development of that supporting cast that we talked about earlier without Subarea Stewart has was the Defensive Player of the year. Jordan Canada led the League in steals. Last season Jewell Loyd has been fantastic in even in these playoffs shooting sixty percents from the field in her three playoff games including two twenty point performances issues a former number one pick. So the cover does not bear at all for for Seattle in not to mention a leash Clark who is one of the great defenders in a wnba right now, they've got a lot of depth in their inner lined up in their rotation on the roster.
Sue Bird talks Seattle Storm, other pro teams pushing for racial justice
"Women's basketball player is crediting the sports world for coming together following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on NBC's Meet The Press the Seattle Storm Seubert, saying this latest push for social justice and racial equality following the Blake shooting was very special. We've been doing this for years and years and years, and I think what was so special about this moment was an opportunity for all of these leaks to be unified. Bird also says a women in sports are oftentimes judge for their actions outside of the game rather than the games themselves. So she had some criticism of those who ask athletes to stick to sports when discussing social issues.
It's Hot Out West: Interview with Seattle Storm's Jordin Canada
"What's going on WB Fans Meg mcpeek I am so happy to be joined by our guest Jordan Canada. She is one of the up and coming superstars in the WMBA. She obviously plays for the Seattle storm coming off a win and you know without introducing her I've got to talk about some of the accolades because you can't mention Jordan Canada and not talk about defense in this league. Here's a two, thousand, nine, hundred, wnba. All defensive first team one, she's a WNBA champion with the Seattle Storm Two thousand eighteen sweeping the Washington mystics open. Guess what she was drafted number five overall by Seattle and I think my favorite fun fact about Jordan is the fact that you are the first. Woman. First Woman in PAC twelve conference history to score eighteen hundred points. Record seven hundred assists in you joined one of the best to ever do it in Gary Payton. In I. I. think that is probably the coolest thing as well. I don't know about you. I'm so excited to have you on the show first off. Happy Belated Twenty Fifth Birthday. How was it? In the bubble. Thank. You obviously, it was quite different. I didn't really get to do much. So I had practice and then I came back and I kinda just chilled That's pretty much I can do is I've been inside the bubble but I've. Sydney gifts my parents sent me a little birthday cake and some edible arrangements. So I got to celebrate just That's amazing. I'm a big fan of the edible arrangements myself. So I am super jealous about that and you mention you know being limited on what you can do in the bubble how is life going in the bubble and? To that point what has been your favorite thing to do not hoops related. The honest we come and don't have much here. We have a pool at the legacy hotel, which is right right up. The street you can save because we're all in villa. So we have a pool that we can go to I. Know they have like early morning golf lessons. and that's pretty much it. That's all we have So for the most part I mean, if you're with your teammates hanger with team You. Aims walking by because we're all in the same areas. Say hello to each other and speak to you know speech our friends and that's pretty much a practice and you come back to your villa. You'd relax and chill we go to games I'm. Really all that we have are you try to make the most of it I? Mean I'm very simple. So it doesn't bother me as much I'm such an introvert. I'm a homebody. So mostly in my room, some of most time just watching TV and stuff. So it's been fine in the beginning of a little bit rough I know something. Terrible living conditions would it where they were saying and stuff but I never had a problem with it but it's been much better You know we've only been here a little over a month. So it's getting better and I think we're just getting used to the conditions of the environment. I'm so happy I actually have something in common with Jordan Canada I am very introverted as well and homebody. So it's good to know if I was in the bubble I would be able to survive with like you said the Gulf I'd be able to hit up. So that'd be pretty cool and it's always fun to relax outside at the pool when you have an off day. So I, know when things being in the bubble and the season being much different than what you're accustomed to. Of course, the news before heading down to a Bradenton geared kloppenburg would be filling in again for coached in Hughes just because of the health concerns with his previous health and cove nineteen how has the team been in contact with coach hugues while being in the bubble? How have you all and coach Kloppenburg still managed to integrate coach us into the day to day of the season. I mean, well, we kind of had a little bit of of that last year when our coaches out when need. Your cancer in remission stuff so. We kinda had. A few games in the season without him and we kinda had to, you know do without him and adjust, but he's always been very active and engaged with us. He I know he talked to the coaching staff allow he does takes me call me from time to time just to talk and catch up I. Don't know about the other players but yet he's just been very engaging in still keeping contact i. know the coaches do a good job of You know talk to him and him incorporating things that he sees while he's. Just, something that he wants us to do Argos very that in. So having a coach Klopp no, be the interim goes like he's had experienced last year being you know in position than he's done a great job and you know we also have like sue bird who's technically light a coach he knows that they're helping. US as well. So we have a lot of help but I know that you know we we really do Miss Dan and I know he's cheering us on from home and you know work continuing to pray for him after thought. So it's it's been a good experience at amazing and it's as if you have done this media before because we me Perfectly with mentioning sue bird and for fans that may not be aware two, thousand nineteen with sue being out with her injury. You were basically thrust in your second season into the starting role and leading this team from the point guard position and being a vocal leader at such a young age in your career. Can you tell us just how that adjustment was? Last season and dealing with that, and even if you know as you mentioned is basically an extra coach with the team on the floor now that you've got her back in the lineup, how how was that transition for you and what advice did she give you throughout last season? It was it was It was tough. I would say there was a lot of ups and downs during that season. It's very hard coming from and you're you know one of the star players on the team you're playing a lot of minutes and you come into a team that's fully stagnant at the see. Find Yourself and my rookie year I had a hard time finding my role I was very up and down I, kind of lost a little bit of my confidence. So it was it was a hard adjustment and then going overseas having to be thrust back into a starting position than have to you know get that leadership back in that confidence bag. So I think that really helped a lot going into two thousand, nineteen season I mean obviously, I didn't expect to be out but because. I was prepared and I gained a little bit my confidence back. I was able to just we know set Ryan in. Obviously there have been subscription ups and downs during that season and trying to learn as I go but sue was a big help. I mean the the best advice that she gave me was don't worry about trying to fill my shoes in in trying to be like me just play your game I know once I came into the league, everyone was talking about Oh. Jordan and ensue in is Jordan going to be able to about up to sue in an expectations and so she told me not to worry about that lying just go out inches player game two point guards, two different types of styles. But what I bring to the table is very important to the team, and so I keep that in mind last year and just trying to play my game and not. The. You know the outside noise and just Do What my team needed to do and I kinda, you know gained a lot of confidence in that and incoming in this season and having Birdie back. I mean like I? Say We're two different point guards in two different styles and if you've watched this play the season, you can kinda tell the difference of when I committed in when she's in. So it's just great to see that you know we're able to play together and you know still Kinda or me keep up the pace with the team when I'm coming in and not have a a low or did. when sue comes out so it's just been awesome experience so far she's been a tremendous help and in my growth all around. How important was that advice that she gave you of reminding you don't try to be me be yourself like how how integral was that inner growth especially, you mentioned now having her back. was very helpful I mean coming into it team like I said I was fully back in playing behind one of the. Honestly. The best point guards ever played the game I mean, that's kind of like nerve wracking and still you have your own expectations like I don't want to screw I don't. WanNa. Come in to a team as police tag playing behind the best point guard ever and you know fail I. Mean there's some of the things I not to think about my rookie year in having her tell me that especially a veteran who's been as game for so long you know she didn't have to tell me that she didn't have to step aside and say, Hey, like don't worry player game don't worry about outside noise expectations just just play your game in big about the team and you which you need to do to to get us to where we are and so to have that advice as such. Early stage in my career was is extremely helpful and it has helped me at times. I think about those times she says that it just calmed down because I know there's been times in the season last year this year where I get super rattle and try to do too much in that think about. That, like calmed down, relaxing, get back to who I am as a player. So to have that to have that advice as A. Data Mark Career is a blessing in Zomba's very thing for

Sue Bird on the WNBA's Plan for the 2020 Season
"I Su. High has gone. It's good, so sued the players voted. The WNBA is officially kicking off the two thousand twenty season in late July at IMG Academy in Bradenton Florida. How are you feeling about all this about basketball? Being played in two thousand twenty, you know I'm not gonNA lie. It's kind of mixed emotions. You know I think when it comes to just simply playing basketball lesson. That's an easy answer. There's something about it that will give us. A sense of purpose we love to play. It'll be able to do great things for the WB and this bubble, but then obviously with what's going on whether it's you know health and safety pandemic wise whether it's social justice wise just a lot to kind of process through. I do plan on going so that's not. That's not really what I'm trying to announce anything like that, but it's still like as the date approaches. You know it's still a lot going on I, think everybody said. Your VP of your union. What were some of the Union's biggest concerns? Guys came to an agreement on this. I mean first and foremost is definitely the health part of it all you know the safety part of it all and just kind of going through. You know what the protocol is GonNa. Be An he the frustrating part and it's nobody's fault. Is that because cove nineteen is obviously new? There's not tons information on it because we're trying to get this season going in. At the time it felt like in a you know three or four week period. We're trying to make all these decisions. A lot of doctors just didn't have concrete answers, so the frustrating part was wanting to hear just like exact answers, and really not getting them just being able to be told what kind of they hope things to be in what they plan for so again. It just brings a little bit anxiety, but I think now that we. We are getting closer. That is one thing that that got handled after that it was the money I'm not gonNA lie. You know when you pull to the table for negotiations. You never know what's going to happen, but luckily at the end of the day it took us a second to get there, but at the end of the day we got one hundred percent of our money, even though we're playing a little less in terms of games, but That was that was a good thing as well and then the third thing was the social justice aspect. WNBA is eighty percent black women. You know we're kind of at the intersection of so many things, and we need our league to stand for something and to support us, so those were kind of like the As you mentioned it's so hard to make these decisions when you're working with such imperfect information, especially scientifically, right? What was that like for you personally making that call? I don't know if there's going to be a great analogy, but because I've had so many surgeries and I've had to do. A lot with. Doctors and getting opinions, I've actually I've come to understand that. We've viewed doctors in this light of knowing everything and I've actually in my own way. I've come to understand that they they know a lot, and hopefully you know you have doctors. Luckily I do around you that you can trust, but there's a there's a limit to that. You know when they cut you open to perform surgery. There's always a percentage you know always a chance that it's not gonNA. Work out exactly how you want so for. For me I. Just tried to actually put myself back in that mindset like okay. They're giving us as much as they can. But there's obviously uncontrollables is well. I mean honestly the State of Florida. The one, but that's a whole other bag Ormes,

Sabrina Ionescu Wants to Win the Whole Damn Thing
"Merrill is a senior writer for ESPN and spent time with Sabrina UNESCO in her family last year for an in-depth profile Liz gets called generational talent? Now sometimes it feels like every top prospect every year gets called a generational talent but with her. It does not seem like hyperbole. No it's not. She's the real deal. She is sort of the Serena Williams of women's basketball. She can shoot the ball. You'd ask you three out. Topped the net barely move. She can dish out passes with relative ease. It looks like she's not even trying cut by over us into double figures at a great pass by ZIP on her passes they get there so quickly and then she can crash the boards UNESCO rebound. She's opened for three it. And you look at the stat sheet and all of a sudden. Wow this kid has thirty points ten assists and ten rebounds and you didn't notice because she makes it look so effortless people are taking notice. Celebrities are taking notice celebrities. Have come just to watch her and the Oregon women play Which you would have never really heard of that. Ten or fifteen years ago like male professional athletes taking the time to meet her or give her a shoutout. I mean this is an example of game recognizing game. Well what have some of those other athletes said about her well Steph? Curry has called her. A legend Libron has called her queen and said that she so dope. Kobe has had. Actually you know gone to meet her. Him and his daughter had seen her play. And what evolved? There was a friendship. You didn't necessarily see that crossover before you know when you did in in times past. You're like wow if you ever saw like a male athlete especially the best of the best. When you're talking about Lebron and staff in Kobe I mean these are guys who've actually seen her play and have taken the time to either go on twitter. Whatever venue and to praise her play. That's a pretty big deal. You know. Even Gino Auriemma said. She's smart. She waits for you to make a mistake a lot of lot of guards. They go so fast that they don't give you a chance to make a mistake. She goes at a pace. Where she waits in waits and waits. When you screw up. She takes advantage of and that's saying a lot for from him who has seen so many great players. I mean every time you think of a great women's basketball player. We're almost always talking about somebody who went to uconn. Be Terachi or BRIANNA STEWART. Or Sue bird or my amore. We're almost always talking about someone who come from that program. Now we're talking about somebody who plays for Oregon and it's not like Oregon is in the middle of nowhere but it's not an easy place to watch basketball because they're on the west coast. You're not GONNA if the if they are on. Tv A lot of times. They're late but yet a more and more people are getting to know about her star power and the fact that you've got all of these these guys who are at the best of the best. You've got Lebron calling her queen I mean that is that's being displayed to all of his millions of followers. Some of the praise that she's received you just. You don't see that you haven't seen that in the past from other women's basketball players. Cobi not only praised her. He actually broke down her game for us. We'll look Sabrina and say okay. She's great handling the ball. Of course us. She's great onscreen roles. Of course she is but what makes really dangerous is that she can catch and shoot to right so she can move off the ball. She's just as dangerous. Doing this. Offer catching shoot. She was asked about him after his death and had this to say I mean everything I do. I do it for him. Obviously Really close friend and this season's for him. What was their relationship like so she met him he. He attended one of her games and over the past year so they became pretty close. She admired his game deeply and vice versa. He you know obviously Kobe with a daughter. Who's really into Basketball that was sort of a bond a she was really emotional after Learning of his death She dedicated that next game to him and kind of broke down just talking about him before we get to this season and what. Sabrina 's accomplishing. I WanNa talk to you about how this all began. How Her story starts? You did a big profile of Sabrina. Last year you spent time with her and her family was she like as a kid well so she had a really unique background. Her family's from Romania. She didn't grow up there but in nineteen eighty nine. The was a revolution in Romania and her father. Dan wanted to leave the country seeking political asylum and so he left for Northern California leaving his wife and their two year old son Andrei behind. He went there sort of for the American dream to kind of provide for the family told the family told his wife. Hey hopefully I can send for you in six months. Got a cab job and was trying to make some money now. That six months a turned into five years five years past he by this time he has turned that cab job into his own limousine company and he can send for the family. So that's nine thousand nine hundred five two years later. Pair of twins were born A boy and a girl and Sabrina came I of course because she would end up being sort of the bossie sibling of the family. And then Eddie came. I think eighteen minutes later That really forged her path having a twin brother who played basketball and the reason they started playing basketball was because both parents worked and maybe it was a simpler time but her dad would drop them off at a park down the street and Walnut Creek and she just started playing her. Daddy would play with other kids. Klay Curry COMP. Exactly she was the one bringing the curry. Okay say you know I was first recurring there you go. She'd get knocked around a lot and she do some knocking herself and sheer. Her skills really evolved from that street basketball into what we see. Now which is one of women's basketball's lead. I mean they got so good that they would start hustling older kids or even adults for like money. that they would use to buy slurpy and you know they speak Romanian and so they could actually Kinda have their own code when they're playing or even if they wanted to make fun of the players that they were playing against they talk to each other in Romania. Hate to use the word tomboy but she was You know her. Mom told me when Sabrina was in junior high. Some a counselor called and said hey you know. We're really concerned about her going to high school. Because she doesn't really communicate with any females. She over friends or boys and her mom's like yeah whatever. Okay I'll get right on that and did nothing. Because she knew that she was developing this young woman who was strong who had her own voice and did what she wanted to and was really good at it so her size helped them in that hustle. Did it lead to her being underestimated when she got to junior high and high school she was but by the time she was leaving high school and being recruited obviously she was heavily sought after. Shit. Yeah She. She wasn't the first person you would look for on the court. She wasn't necessarily anything spectacular By any means but once you saw her play in what she could do a lot of her stuff is like you know the old fashioned elbow grease stuff where you know she the reason. She has all those rebounds is because when she played with boys she never got the ball and so the only way she was getting the ball is if she somehow muscled her way in there. The family is not a basketball family. Didn't even know anything about basketball before they came here and even in those first years they. It wasn't something that they really knew. A lot about coming from Romania. Pretty much everything she has gotten has sort of. Been off of this whole work
