Glenn Kirschner Will Risk Trump's Threats to Defend Democracy
"Started? What are we running for? Let's do this. Yes, when I say I can't run for office because I can't fundraise. I'm not looking to get a rise out of people who are like, will help you. You know, I created a 501c3 nonprofit national homicide families went through the IRS process that was not fun, but we got our approval. And then I went on exactly one fundraising call and it made me want to hurl and I realized I can't ask people for money even for really worthy causes. I was a public servant step for more than 30 years and I never had to ask one person for $1 in order for me to be a public servant. I can't start now by saying I want to run for office and be a public servant. So money, money, money, money, money, not in my DNA, unfortunately. Yeah. Well, that doesn't mean you still can't be appointed. What am I looking for? Oh, attorney general. Yeah. Okay, I'm just saying, that's not running. Okay, you were the, one of the many of us who you tweeted. So Donnie soprano and the boys got together at the bottom being golf club to sort through some problems. I mean, between this Sopranos scene on the golf course with no golfing going on. And this latest threat, he just said, what did he say? I think there's going to be a big trouble if I'm indicted. I mean, how much more explicit a threat of inciting violence could there be? Yeah, it'll be big trouble and boy will it be good trouble. And it's precisely the kind of trouble this country needs. We can not decline to charge somebody for their crime stuff for fear of how that person's associates or supporters will react. If that impacts our decision, who to indict, then the rule of law is truly dead. Let him threaten violence. Let Lindsey Graham threaten that there will be protests and there will be riots fine. Bring it on because some things are worth fighting for like the rule of law and the future of our democracy. Yep, absolutely. Finally, you tweeted our team justice members have been sending me pictures they took while attending Saturday night's event in D.C.. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to get to share the stage with Stephanie Miller and representative Raskin to share the legal issues of the day in our fight for justice. You just posted a clip of you and Jamie Raskin and we were, what I didn't get a chance to watch it yet, 'cause there was so much good stuff that happened. What was that particular exchange? Do you remember? Yeah, so that clip you and I and representative Raskin were talking about basically the deep injustice that's at play in America right now where the people that Donald Trump lied to and used that lie to urge them to attack the capitol. Those people are going to prison because they obey Donald Trump's commands and they fell for his lies. Donald Trump, the person who is most criminally responsible for the capital attack has a teen time later today. That's a deep injustice that needs to be remedied right now because we add on top of that stuff. The classified documents crimes at Mar-a-Lago, Trump had top secret materials national defense information, which is why this is an espionage act crime being investigated. And information about the nuclear capabilities and defenses of foreign countries and he has not been arrested by the Department of Justice for committing all of those most dangerous crimes that undermines the confidence in our federal government and in our rule of law. These things must be made right by the Department of Justice, not rocket science, just good government. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like what happens is we get overwhelmed. I think you and Jamie were talking about that Saturday night that, you know, in all of this new espionage stuff, you're like, Jamie's over there going, wait a minute. What about our crimes? What about the overthrow of the government in January 6th? I mean, and speaking of which, I mean, there are going to be starting again, obviously the J 6 committee wanted to ask you finally, what did you think of a lot of people speculating on what Zoe lofgren meant and also many Thompson, do you feel like they're saying they have recovered the missing Secret Service tax? Yeah, and I don't think they were ever missing in the first place. Let's just say they were, they were perhaps misplaced or mistaken about them all being permanently deleted or purged. So they clearly have lots and lots of text messages now. So the next logical question beyond what do they tell us about what the Secret Service and Mike Pence and Donald Trump and Mark Meadows were doing on January 5th and 6th and 7th. But why did the machinery of the Secret Service and DHS at least the former leadership of DHS try to lie about it and keep them from being viewed by Congress and inferentially the Department of Justice? That is the next investigative lead. They're going to have to follow. All right, you heard him. Starve stage screen. And LA sexy liberal. Go to sex in the world dot com. Thank you, honey. See you next week. Thanks, Seth. Obviously. I love you

The FBI Search Warrant Will Prove This Is a Political Witch Hunt
"And they've asked the judge to keep the warrant private. I think the reason why is because they know this is a political witch hunt. And whatever's on that document will prove it's a political witch hunt. That the raid had nothing to do with the national archives, got nothing to do with J 6. This has everything to do because we know, by the way, from Benny Thompson, the chair of the J 6 committee that there are no criminal charges coming out of that against president Trump. There are none. So I believe that something else is going on here. And that something else is looking for something to indict this president because if they can indict this president, he will not be able to run for The White House again. And these people are terrified. They're terrified of Donald Trump. You know why they're terrified of Donald Trump? Because he delivered on his campaign promises. He made promises to weed the people he made promises to the maga world he made promises to the America first community and he delivered all those promises. He also stood up to the military industrial complex of this nation, the one that's continuing to send young men and young women into battle, where we don't need to be in battle. He also stood up to the mainstream media and he showed the Republicans how to fight back against these little morons like little Jimmy Acosta over at CNN. The most profane name in news. Crying Negro network, judge Joe Brown, thank you, sir. We always appreciate your kind words and your opinion. That's what I think is going on here.

Sebastian Talks About the Lies Behind Jan. 6 With Rep. Troy Nehls
"First things first, got to talk about it at January 6th. You have been digging into the documents for over a year now. It is the subject of your book. What are the things that the people in power don't want the American people to know about those four hours? Well, what you're seeing from this January 6th sham committee on televisions across America. Now, I know they're not getting the ratings they would like beni Thompson is the puppet and Nancy's the puppet master. You've got Liz Cheney and Adam kenzie gunner. But this book really talks about all the things that they're not talking about. They don't want to talk about the intelligence that the leadership of the capitol police had. Before the event. Before the event weeks leading up to the event. Telling them that they need to prepare. That's right. The capitol police leadership team, specifically the intelligence section, they produced three reports, intelligence reports, dating back to December 15th, December 30th, and then January 3rd. And I highlight all this in the book. And if you would have read that 14 page report, that intelligent summary on January 3rd, you'd have read a paragraph, you would have said, as an entry level law enforcement officer would have said, we need to have the National Guard here, the following day.

"thompsons" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Those two dudes up. They're just both really good. They're so good. Can you risk losing both of them if you give one up? 'cause you're banking on one stain. And nothing's guaranteed in his league. Right. And so when you start tinkering around the edges with them, what you're looking for are the things that they don't bring to the table. That's what that's what you do in supporting roles as you bring something to the table that the stars don't bring. And if neither one of those guys are true leaders, and there's nothing, there's nothing wrong with that. You can develop into that. You know? But they've been running their own show, you know, since kind of they got there. Who was there, who was the guy that they looked up to like, yo man, this dude, this dude is a boss. He's been a should have been, but yeah, we know how that played out. So Kyrie didn't provide that, or maybe he did. I don't know. It just didn't work out there. But the point is, if they can't do it, and they're not doing it, then yes, you have to find someone who can come in and provide that type of stability. Voice leadership. You know, but I've said this a lot. What I used to say in meetings with our ownership and stuff in Cleveland and David Griffin about certain players. And I don't know this to be fact about these two. I don't know them. Some players don't want to lead. And they don't want to be lead, and that puts you in a really weird spot because you could bring anybody in there. The best of the best leaders, and you got this dude who's his own little entity, you know? You know, kind of an enigma as it pertains to being on a team. You're great. But you don't want to lead us, you don't want to follow. Like, what do you do? And that derails championships quickly. It's an interesting thing. And some we should keep an eye on. That's something we'll look at down the line. But as of right now, we are out of time..
"thompsons" Discussed on The NBA Show
"I mean, I hope it works. I'm not a hater in that regard. I hope it works. I've never seen it done before. I don't know that there's a blueprint for it. And I too believe it not to be sustainable. I hope it works. The best ability is availability. Anyway, saying that Eastern Conference and New York, bro, I watched the Celtics Knicks game. A bizarre game, man. Just the very bizarre game. Like they're cooking, Jalen's cooking, Jason's cooking. All of a sudden, evid fournier just comes out and starts cooking. Just starts balling. The guards are fired. Tim's are in the air, orange and blue skies, baby. You know, it's just a vibe there. But I really want to think about think about the Celtics. Is that backcourt sustainable with Jalen and Jayson Tatum? And who do you choose ultimately? Because there's going to come a time away is going right now. You just got to choose up right at this point. Who are you choosing between those two? I don't know. I don't know. I'm being honest with you. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I think Jalen might have more upside than Jayson Tatum. Really? Yeah. I think the reason I say this and again, it's my opinion. I think Jason Tatum came in as the more refined of the two players. Yes. He was already, and that's why he was better early. And offensive NBA weapon because he was that good. Jalen is just worked his way into that. He was more raw. Super talented, but more raw. And he's continued to get better and better. And he's more athletic, I think, slightly than Jason. But I look, man, you're either one of them give them to me. I just don't really know and I posed a question before. I post it. Do they fit? I always feel like there are two players that both are on the same trajectory as young players and they're not ready for the type of unwritten and understood agreement that has to happen between costars of a team, you know? They both want it. They both want it. And that's a good thing. I don't know that they're ready for that. And so that, you know, I don't know. I don't know about it. But you could toss it up. I'm not taking anything away from Jason Tatum. He's a stone cold killer too. Jaylen brown's a boss. I don't know that they fake great. What I think the Celtics need to learn the lesson of the Portland Trail Blazers right now. And that means, it doesn't matter if you make a decision, but you have to make a decision. You do, because you don't want to get into a situation where they're playing with each other. And there are, where they're playing with each other, and it's clear it's over and it's clear that you need to make a move, but to get to upgrade your team, but then ten years go by all of a sudden, will someone get sensitive, and you get the CJ McCollum dame Lillard back court. And then what, right? Then you're doing a disservice to both players. I think they need to make a decision not like in the next few years, but they need to make a decision. I think that'll be best for all parties involved. Perfect perfect world, right? Because I admittedly, I'm telling you I'm not sure, right? It was the question I pose. I'm not definitively saying they don't work together. My eyes say they don't look like a natural fit. But they're so good, both of them. I like a couple years. I like what you're saying there. And I think you have to start moving more pieces around them to see if maybe there's something else on that team. Marcus smart, or anybody else that is interrupting the flow that they could be. Yeah. Do you know what I mean? Unless you've already made the determination that they don't work together. And maybe there's something to tap, but if you haven't, to give it a good enough look, you're gonna have to start shuffling some pieces. And if it never comes to fruition, no matter what pieces you move around them, then you got your answer, dude. It doesn't work so great. Just my pushback. I think CJ and dame, there's not really an instance of those too small guards. Like getting it done and being the best, but neither one of these dudes are small. Like, you know what I mean? So I wouldn't be so quick to say that they couldn't. You know, I just got to figure that out. I was watching a mismatch. Or listening to the mismatch. And KFC brought up the real. Brought up a point about the Celtics not working because of leadership. And there's not a defined de facto leader. Now, you could say Marcus smart might be one of the most vocal. Doesn't necessarily mean that people are going to follow him. I'm this team, right? Have you seen a lack of leader? 'cause I know you don't care. Has went in on them, talking about the lack of toughness. Just really just, you know, it's very interesting to hear comments like that very early on in the season from a first year head coach talking about lack of toughness. And but is there something that could be done maybe not a trade of the two stars, but another person that does bring a leadership thing be like, hey, that everyone tends to respect that could tell Jalen and Jason to get their shit together and just be like, hey man, chill. And actually have respect, is that could that be a more feasible option at this point? Yeah, that's kind of what I was saying a minute ago. You have to you for right now. You're not going to want to,.

"Work. It's not gonna work. And Kyrie don't Kyrie's, I know what the hope is. The hope is you get Kyrie back in the fold. He helps you in the short term and long-term, he starts to be like, oh, well shit, I miss this, man. I really, you know, I can really dig these this man. Let me get my vaccination. Not happening. He's not doing that. And this is not that we're not talking about that, right? We're talking about the specific we're not talking about the vaccine, none of that. We're talking about the specifically just being there for your teammates. Just literally being there. That's the vaccinations. It's about him. It's one thing to have side eye in January. But like, yo man, when it's made and we got to go play Giannis and the chips are on the line or we got to go play Toronto or we got to go play one of these teams. And you over here like, no, bro, I'm not gonna play. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna play, man. You know, I'm not gonna bro like, there's gonna be some real problems in that locker room. That's nice as I can say it. When it comes down to it because we know how athletes are. We know how this is your job. This is what it is. And you gonna just be like, acting like, yo, we gonna play a part time role here? Like I said, one thing for it to be a loss blowout loss in January to Milwaukee. But it's another damn thing when you cost me my season. Yeah, listen. Yes, season and for some of those for some vets. Yes, legacies. You know, for best player on the planet type of legacies like KD and then just general career legacies for dudes like Blake Griffin, not the best one on the planet, but needs a chip once a chip. So you got a chip. Lamarcus, you know? Paul Millsap, like those dudes, right? Patty mills got one, but like, you know, those type of deals. Also, like, let's not be for a dude like, I don't know who some of the bottom guys on that roster are just, man, getting to the chip and winning the championships at healthy bonus. That's a healthy stimulus package. Not even just the players, dog, we talking about, you know, you know, people that work with the team, get the playoff shares. Absolutely. Absolutely. Bro from my point. So let me and let me take it back to the coaching perspective, right? Here's what we got. We played, let's say we played Chicago in Chicago. We beat Chicago in Chicago. What I should be able to do is go to that film, right? Steve Nash, David van to pull jock Vaughn, Aristotle, whoever else is there, Adam herrington. The like. We're gonna sit down. Here's what we did well. Here's what we didn't do well. Here's what they had success with. Here's how we want to counter that, moving forward. Start to compile this gameplay because we see them in four days at the crib, right? And we just beat them. They're the top team in the Eastern Conference right now. Here's the game plan. You can't do that the same way when one of your major players is not going to be there. So now you're developing, you know, there's no consistency in your game plan and your game planning for games with Kyrie and then your game planning four games without Kyrie. So that blueprint, you got to scrap that whole blueprint. It worked. And now I got to scrap it. Didn't lend it also because I want to get to one more thing when we get out of here. Well, so you talk about like a James Harden, right? Who was just coming into? He's just fine in his rhythm again. He is just kidding. He's cooking, right? And then, you know, he has his sacrifice his game for Kyrie. Like Kevin, I don't Kevin never have to sacrifice his game. He's the best player to play. He doesn't have to do it. But a guy like James Harden, who was just getting it, who's getting back to that old form, has to be like, okay, well, let me take a step back and figure it out. And then wait, hold on, let me take a step forward because we're at home now. Oh, wait. Wait, are we going to have an away game? Oh, wait, it's at the garden, so I still got it. What am I doing? I can't. That's not sustainable, man. I'll just leave it at that. You got any final words on this man?.
"thompsons" Discussed on The NBA Show
"We kind of talked about this a little bit last week, but I wanted to kind of go and talk Kyrie a little bit. Played really well against Indiana, but I'm really skeptical about how this is going to happen and I do see there have been some there have been some not rumblings but there have been some prickly moments like with I saw Nick friedel ESPN asked Kevin just about Kyrie's vaccination status and I just saw Kevin was just kind of fed up. This is about the whole thing. It's like, yo, I can't make that man take a vaccine. We want him on the floor. We've basically told her we want him on the floor. And I'm paraphrasing here. But basically, if Kyrie, he knows what he needs to do to get on the floor, right? Yeah. And kairi's, I think he showed it in a phenomenal player. But how do you I saw the Indiana game and then I go into watch the game against Milwaukee where the nets get their ass kicked at home by honest, right? And I can't help but wonder, like, how do you catch a rhythm as consistent rhythm when one of your best players is a part time player? And he's in and out of the lineup. And this isn't just somebody that's like off the bench. No, this is your star guy. This is one of your core guys. How can you reasonably expect to get a rhythm when he's like, oh, I'm just gonna come on road games. Oh, but then some roller games I can't go, oh, but if we go playing Toronto, I can't necessarily be there, y'all. Y'all get it y'all figured out. And then there's this, and then when he does play, it's just like, oh, man, I'm so happy to be back. It's just a lot of things going on right now. It just doesn't feel like doesn't feel sustainable. I don't think it's gonna work, man. I do not think it's gonna work as currently constructed. I'd love to argue with you. You know I enjoy arguing with you. It's like the best part of my Mondays and Thursdays. But I can not argue with you Logan. It is not sustainable. Again, man. I feel for my man Stevie Nash. I just do. This is just I would say Nash smiling like a two years. I haven't seen him smile. He's doing a great job his attitude is perfect. Look, he's the perfect guy to have in the seat while all this is going on. Because you just eternal optimists. He's always got this great energy. He's a great leader. And so he's the guy to have to kind of steer your ship through this, but this is a mess. I mean, I'd make the case that if I were his teammate, Kyrie's teammate. I could wrap my mind around losing to Brooklyn at home. I mean, losing to Milwaukee at home. And not really be looking sideways at Kyrie. If he hadn't been around for a while, if he was just like out of sight out of mind and we went and beat Indiana and then we came home and lost to Milwaukee. He'd be like, whatever. Kyrie's not the first thing that comes to mind. I haven't seen him in a long time. But when he's there the night before, and he helps you win any scoring 20. Some points, and you get to see those. You get to see the brilliance that is Kyrie. I mean, it's human nature to be sitting there against Milwaukee like what the fuck I read at night. You know what I mean? And so that introduces a whole another level of side eyed in this where people are like he comes back the next night you got my first looking at you like this and he's all chipper and stuff like, hey guys, I'm here in bed. Don't miss me with that. Miss me with that. So I think you know that's one thing. And then on a whole nother level on a basketball, purely X's and O level. I mean, I know that the NBA specifically as a league isn't built on the backs of role players. It's a star driven league. Everyone understands that. And a storyline driven league. Absolutely. But that's probably first and foremost, right? And then, you know, stars are the biggest part of winning the championship. But man, you've got to have a real stable real locked in real committed, real unselfish group of supporting cast type of players, roll guys. They've got to be firmly entrenched in those roles. They have to understand them inside and out. You know, that's done over the course of a season. That's achieved over 82 wooden banks. We're in here trial and error. We're figuring it out. Don't do that right. I sit in the way I like it done. Aaron I need you over here, Logan. Hey, check this out, man, when Katie does that, James is going to do this. Here's where you got to be, bro, this is what you need to do. Now Kyrie comes in for half of those games and it throws your roll out of whack. Those my roll out of whack just fractionally. And now we're going to not have him for it's a mess. It's hard to do. And so in the short term, dropping a Kyrie offensive production type of player into the lineup is great. Boom, immediate jolt, immediate buckets, immediate, like saving from a 7 point deficit late in the fourth quarter. But over the long term, having a missing all of those.

"That could take, you know, that could take the end of this year going into next year just because he's had such a long layoff. I don't know how Golden State approaches it. If I were them, and if I were clay, they're already playing really well this year. Yeah. I would be as complimentary as I could be. They're going to be nights where I get 25, 26, 27. There might be other nights where I get 8 to ten. You know what I mean? But I don't know that I would force it at him right now. Number one, I don't know if he can handle it like physically, but number two, we really are playing well. And also like they don't need, they don't, they don't. If there's one thing the lawyers don't need is extra scoring, like they're fine. They're okay. I think, you know, it will pool gets hot, Wiggins can score at a nice clip. We have Steph on the team. I don't think that they don't need him to be a 20 point per game score. They need him to just fit in right now. That's what the warriors need, and I agree. But sometimes it's deeper than that. Like when you have a guy of that ill coming back into the fold, you know? And I don't know clay like that. I think that he will be fine, except in whatever role is there this year. But don't make no mistake. That's not your average bear. That's not a role player coming back off of an injury, just reassuming role. That's a dude who's used to being a headliner like, you don't always work out that easy. I hope it does. I think that the warriors need though, man. We'll talk about this down the line. They need a front court guy, bro, they do. They need to come on loony bawled out at 18 rebounds on a front court, and also Cleveland is I really like Cleveland. They're not worth talking to too much about, but I really like Cleveland. I saw Eva mobley and also I got to apologize for. I want to apologize to Jared Allen. You know, I wasn't really I wasn't locked in as much to his game. I didn't like they didn't really love that deal. Apologies, bro, because they were ballin. I really, I do like what they could be. Garland was ballin, but I sailed to say, where is he the front court guy? Because koval Looney is great as he's been this season. They need they needed. They need a dude. They need a dude. I don't know wiseman's gonna be that he's definitely not gonna be that this season. I don't think he's gonna at the very least, he's not gonna be dead this season. It is, you know, it's fun to watch Golden State because they're so good offensively. But when I watch them the last time I watched him, I said, I said, damn, they're rolling out there. They got Andrea Goodall out there. They got Andrew Wiggins out there. They got want to scan all Anderson out there. They got draymond out there, and you have Steph. That is a hell of a long rangy versatile defensive unit. Step's not known for his defensive prowess, besides the point. Like they have lineups and dudes that can come in and just lock anything down. We're switching it all. We're locking it down. You know, I do agree that the one soft part, you know, is whether they can get that good front court bolstering that they need. As far as Cleveland goes, flowers is Logan Murdock term. I'm giving my flowers, the flowers, or their flowers. JB bickerstaff. Yep. And Kobe Altman and Kobe's my dude, but, you know, I pride myself on being a real one. I've been, I've been hard on Colby. That shit was a mess the last couple years. Yeah. I didn't know where you were going with it. I couldn't see it. I don't know who could see it. It's starting to come into focus a little bit, man, and JB bickerstaff looks like, you know, he's a young, he's a young star in the coaching ranks. So shout out flowers for both of them do. It's one thing to see when you see how long a team is on television. But their motherfuckers are you know when you go and person and you see them walk out because obviously I got there early. So Evan Moby walk out dude just all arms and legs, bro, you know? And then you know you try that out. You got K loop coming off the bench, right? Like you have just dudes that are big dudes. Yep. We'll see what happens, man. They're pretty good team. They're a pretty good team. This episode is brought.

"All right, let's get to the basketball portion it is. So what did you I know there's not much you can I don't know I'll push back on it. There's a little something you can see from the game and things like that. What could be, but what did you see from a basketball standpoint? Maybe good or bad that maybe something we could just be concerned about or something that we should be happy about? What do you see from this warriors team with clay back in the fold? Well, it's going to be a redefinition of some rules. Jordan Poole came off the bench last night, right? Yeah. So he comes to mind first and foremost in terms of a guy that was asked to a lot of scoring, had a lot of ball in his hands. And now you're coming back with clay. Now you're coming off the bench. Coming off the bench helps a little bit because 6 men came off the bench doll. 6 men come in and they get the ball in their hands, right? It's your job coming in infused some energy into the offense, you know, keep scoring against the second unit. But I think as a team, there's going to be a little bit of that. Andrew Wiggins as well, right? Like guys who've never really played with him at any length before, maybe even those other pieces like Juan toscano and people like that. Clay looked a little heavy in my opinion, but I think that I mean to be expected. It's not a knock. It's just when you're coming back, it's going to take a while to get into real game shape. And then it's to some degree the jury's out on whether on whether he is legs are going to allow him to really move the way Klay Thompson used to move. You know? And what percentage of himself is he, right? Like we talked about KD coming back and KD came back at a very high percentage of himself. It's almost negligible. Like you wouldn't even be able to tell, right? That's still TBD with clay, you know? How do his legs respond once he gets 20 games in? Like, can he still move? Can he defend the way? Because one of the best parts of clay, you know, aside from just this incredible stroke was he was one of the best two way players in the league. Yeah. Does he still have his lateral burst? Can he stay in front of people? You know, there's a lot that they gotta figure out, but I think they will, and they got a great coach. They got a great culture. And I think it gets done. I think that I saw clay walking up to the podium and I was like, I don't want to put too much into this, but it was definitely one of those heavy legs limp. You know when you just hella would your legs are just hella heavy after playing a game. And it was one of those. You could tell that he had played a basketball game. My thing is, it's similar to when you were talking when we were talking about a Steph a couple weeks back in terms of rhythm and him chasing. When stuff was chasing the rhythm and how it sacrificed rhythm. I think the same could be one of the concerns I would have with, at least in the short term, not in a long time, but in the short term trying to find your rhythm to get clay back into the fold. I think that's something that should be should be looked at. I think that that'll ultimately work itself out. But, you know, there's clay's not gonna shoot it. I don't think clay's gonna shoot a team shot. There's gonna be nice where he's just not, you might think he's not himself because he's trying to get his win back. I don't know how long that's gonna be, but I think that there's something a cause that might be pause. They lose some games that you think like, oh, why the fuck they lose this game. But there's gonna be some games like that to where, you know, or clay's just not. He doesn't have that jolt of energy. Yeah, and I think, you know, one of your points there was one that I was kind of, I was thinking about it's the volume of shots that he's going to get. And like 18 and 20 minutes, that can't be his role on this team. That was a first night out of the box, the celebratory moment of Klay Thompson and his return to the Golden State Warriors and it was dope, you know? But I think clay, like there are two ways to approach it. And I mean, this is purely opinion. You could say if you're Steve current company, hey, we're going to force this back. We're going to just keep force and stuff at clay. It might cost us in the short term, but in the long run, we're going to be better for having the splash brothers back and be firing on all cylinders. And then the other way would be to have clay play this complimentary or more complimentary than before type of role where, you know, he gets it when he gets it, and if he gets hot, you know, it is what it is, but he's not real focal point of your offense until until you know he really gets cooking.

"Wanted to make sure he was there. Yeah, that's a big time. Pulled calf is very painful too. It's very important for an awesome situation to sit down for. You know, it'll sound like it much, but you better sit down if you got anything calf related. Yep. But it was funny though, but the first play of the game was a design play for clay to pass the ball. He caught that ball one time was like, nope. That's the one that's the girl we were talking about. That's the curl. It was for him to pass it. He said, I saw hey, fuck it. Gotta have it. Gotta have it. I loved it. I loved it. You know, what you don't get to see as a fan is, and if you listen and really dug into what he was saying in his press conference, is the rehab that goes into a single injury of any magnitude, like any type of real surgery where they got to open you up and repair a major ligament. The tediousness of the rehab and how slow it can take and the invariable setbacks that come on the road to recovery, right? Like in your movement, it's really slow, it's grueling, it's tedious. You're taking these baby steps. You make a little breakthrough and you think you're only up from here and then two weeks later, you're doing this mundane shit and boom. You got to set back. You know? And that just happens over and over again. And so it's this steady stock market type of like climb, like you're up, and then it's down a little, and then you're up. Now you plateau a little, but now we're down and now we're up. And people don't see the work the time, the literal blood sweat and tears that go into that. The loneliness. Oh, absolutely the loneliness that everybody's out on the court. And you're in the back, where everyone's out on the court and you're over there on the side, like just trying to get range of motion back, like getting stretched. You can't shoot while they're all shooting, so they all leave, and now you gotta get your core time in. So it can be lonely. Teammates see that. They see what you pour into that. And I'm talking about a single injury, not two catastrophic ones. So when you say that everybody over there on that sideline, it tells a lot about how much they care about them and how much they love them. And it also tells a lot about how much they respect the grind that he had to go through to get back, you know? And that's what that's what kind of gets missed, right? Like a guy just doesn't show up on your TV for a while. And he comes back. And everybody's got this judgment on whether he's great again, or he's not great again, or, you know, we do it to it's our job, right? Yeah. But you often forget about what it took just to get back to a point where you can.

"Not for everyone to use, but some people have access to the escape hatch if they think about Chase center is they have so many different ones. We will be site unseen. There is no way. If you wanted to duck us and never talk to the media, they got shout out to Raymond who will make yo ass talk to media. But if you don't on an off night, there's like 7 different doors you can go. There's like 7 different bat caves. There's 7 different there's so many ways you can duck us if you want to. But so clay, this is getting pushed in perspective. Steph is usually the last person, like to talk, and he takes like an hour after the game. Hour and a half sometimes. Clay came after him. So we had to wait. But I think you'll appreciate this. He was just so reflective. And one of the things I really, like, kind of, that made me choke up a really just was like, damn, that's real. He was like, if I said, he was like, yeah, I was minus two for the night, but it looks so good to see my name on a box score. Again. And look and look and see that I was 7 of 18. He was like, I can't wait to watch film tonight. I can't wait to do all these things. Because it's been so long, and he's been seen and he's been looking at box scores and all these things, but to see his name on a box score was the biggest takeaway for him. As an NBA player, Raja, how much would you relate to? Just even that feeling of having that. That touched me. I was like, oh, it was all the feels, all the vibes from. Well, I can't, you know, it's hard because I missed a season with injury with an injured wrist. I only missed like three quarters of the year or something like that. So I don't have that type of layoff that clay had. I couldn't even imagine. But coming back after that year off for me, was really, really exciting. It was nerve wracking. You know, there was such a mix of emotions, right? And the roller coaster ride that was the week leading up to my first game coming back. Was exhausting. And so I watched that press conference and I heard him talk and I thought he approached it. I thought he approached it like an adult, you know? Like he's got a real good feel for what's important. He talked about just kind of being out being out in nature with his dog and walking around and staying off the phone and you know I thought that was a good way to approach it because you can get really swept up in the emotions and the what ifs and you know the box, the box score is interesting, right? Because like, you don't think much about it. Fans are like, it's a box for, like, whatever. But you know, sometimes looking at that box where you're just so conditioned to do it at the end of the night to either validate like what you just put out there on wax or to kind of kick yourself in the ass like damn, I really did go one for 13, you know? Like you're like shit. But in either in either case, you were out there. Like that's it. Those box scores live on forever. You know what I mean? So you're like, yo, I was out there on the court. And it sounds corny, but that's a real thing. I miss seeing my name on a box score. Like, you know what I mean? Your first year out. You know, you're like, damn, bro, okay, so let me put it in, because I'm getting lost in my thought here. When I was back in the NBA, and I worked for the cats. I was a part of what was going on. I had a role in that organization. You know, we were playing in a championship. I was on every trip. There was no name in the box score. You know? I wasn't affecting the outcome the way I was used to affecting the outcome. And I missed that. I was yearning for that. Even Griff would say, you really want to be, you probably should coach because it's going to get you closer to that. It doesn't look like this is enough for you. And that's kind of what, I guess he was saying it's as close as I could get to it. It's like, hey man, I'm back in it. He's a great teammate. He held his young fellows down. You could see him over there and parting wisdom and being that good vet for guys when he couldn't be on the court. And that's a role, but it ain't like being out there having your hands in it, you know? Nah, man. And you could tell a lot about a player by how the rest of the bench reacts when that player does a good. They were all note. They were jumping around. There was another draymond had a pulled his calf, I guess in pre game warm ups. And fucked him up, right? But he started the game and filed Darius Garland, but started the game just so he could and then missed the rest of game validators Garland and missed the rest of the game, but wanted to be on the floor. With clay for his return game..

"Quick. John morant had a yet another huge block. It was one of the greatest blocks I've ever seen. Go ahead, just floor real quick. I just want to, if not the one of the most electrifying players in the league, that's all. I mean, I don't think it's disputable at this point. I've been trying to tell you if you weren't listening just go Google Chrome, whatever you're search engine is, just go look up the block. Like just put in the block. You don't even put in the block. Put that up there. And if you want a little bonus material after that, search John Moran dunk against the Lakers because that gets lost in the conversation because the block was just absolutely absurd. But he docked, he docked so he didn't hit his head on a rim on the dunk. You got to understand. That's he jumped to the top of the backboard. To block a shot. I'm just saying, man, I don't want to make this a job around. I mean, but John Moran's making it a job or anything. So I can't help it. But that's all I'm gonna say. Just do yourself a favor. Sponsored by job morant place. All right, let's get to the shit. Raja had the honor and the pleasure. Last night, to be a Chase center. Oh, my God. When did you get there? Oh, okay. So I got there. Game starts local time 5 30. I got there at two 35. I was there for the entire pregame. Yeah, yeah. Sometimes, you know, especially like, during the season, I've been going to see the pre game festivities, you know, and then maybe leave duck out maybe after the first half or something like that. I've been doing that for warriors games, you know. Just, you know, I just want to get home and watch the rest of the game at the crib, you know? You know this thing. You know, people people out there might not see that, but you know, when you go watch it at home on the couch, it's sometimes just better, right? This time not fucked that. I was locked in. I got there two 35. On a football Sunday, mind you. You know? Got to got there. You know, it's something about when the array is just empty, but there's a buzz there. It was a buzz. I hadn't seen a buzz like this and Chase center ever, but I hadn't seen a buzz like this around a warriors game. And at least two two and a half years. Since they were like, this was the big, it felt like a finals game. Everybody was there. Though, I walk in and then step runs out. Steph has on the Klay Thompson Jersey. I'm like, oh, shit. Just to warm up. Right? He just warm her up, right? And then, you know how you hear somebody before you see them? You hear just not necessarily them, but you hear just like the some baseline. Next to Chris mullin, humble flex, shout out to Chris mullin, the OG. And it's just the audible. It's like, it was like a wrestling match because it's like, it's like the huh? And then it's like the, yeah, and it's like the oh. And then clay comes out and clay is like pumping up the crowd. Yeah, yeah, get the fuck up, 'cause the fuck up, get the fuck up. For the warm up. For the warm up, does this and does like three circles around. You know, the general area going like this has the headband on and then it hits his first 5 threes and the crowd goes bananas, mind you. There's an hour before the cape started. It's not even like they haven't even done anything yet. It's not even there's nothing that's going on. And then he works out for about 20 minutes. It's packed. It's great. And then we get to the player intros. Now, normally the warriors players are pretty good, but they milk this shit today. Yesterday milked it. They had on the jumbotron. He's back. Then Steph Steph goes, Stephan's usually lasts to get announced what they put clays last to be announced. And it was packed in the crowd went I had never heard that type of cheer at Chase center. The acoustics were used at Chase. Well, they did clay Thompson. It was like a fucking finals yell. It was like, right? Then he fucking, then he fucking throws up some bullshit in the first play of the game and it goes in. And then they're just ready to rock. Did he proceed? Let me throw this finger roll ish, flip shot up. Gotcha. Should I never see him do? Gotta go definitely not in his normal bag. He was and then and then he used to miss his next 5 shots. 'cause then this is the crescendo moment. He fucking seized Jared Allen on the switch. Reaches. He goes to the cup. Dogs don't like three dudes. It's over. The roof is off of chase at this point. There's no one E 40 out on the corner just going stupid. Just everybody is just going bananas. It was a good old warriors game, man. It was a throwback game. Black plays back. It was a great time. And there's probably, I mean, I know the answer to this, but it would be impossible to get a feel last night for what they might look like with clay introducing. You shot 18 shots in 20 minutes. So there's no real way. Everything was clay centric last night. There's no way to see or take anything away from the performance last night. Okay, there. There's nothing. I was thinking about he was on such a journaling, especially at the end of the eula appreciate this. He was because I think it's been like 943 days since he's played the game. It's been a long time. And so at the postgame, normally, I dip after the postgame, you know? I'll probably leave. I usually don't stay that long. But I stayed. And boy, it was a long time because you know this. Your motherfuckers take a long time to come to get to get dressed and to talk and to just you guys take a long ass time. It depends on it depends on the scenario, the type of game, the gravity of the moment and whether or not someone played well. Because you could get a quick exit. For me, sometimes. How old were you? Were you a quick guy, were you quick? Obviously, if I played anywhere in my normal average range or better, yeah, I'd probably just have to win. I took a little longer. Yeah, because I ace and being a cold tub. So I don't do that. No. But there would be the occasion if I was really pissed where I'm gone. Like, I mean, in and out. You might miss me 'cause I'm gone. How do y'all get back to clan a second, but how do you guys get out so fast? Y'all showered dip, or y'all just y'all stank, you know, just go home. How does this work? I've never left an arena in the NBA, I should say, because in high school, we did it without the shower. I'm never taking the shower pill in the NBA. I've seen it done. I've seen it done a lot, but I've never done it. So yeah, you can take the quick shower. You know, you ranch off wrench off and then get the hell out of it. The water like little areas leave where we can't even see it. Y'all know all the little nooks and crannies in the arenas, bro y'all know how to duck us, but very good PR person has the escape hatch on deck..

"He said the sound of marching in the top of the mulberry trees the sound of chariots wheels and horses hooves now of course those are biblical references. We recognize eric. We realize thinking. Not when i heard you give this The other day. I did not recognize that reference the marching and the sound of the mulberry trees So for those listening. Who may be as ignorant as i am Let us know. What is that referred to. What is the scripture. That when you heard that from god well when david the philistines came against david because they wanted to capture to kill him and as they were advancing. Thereupon israel David then heard about it and so he inquired lord and he went to he said lord. Why what do i do should i just come out meet them. Head on lord folk to him and said no circle around behind them and when you hear the sound of marching in the top of the mulberry trees then attack and so a net reference. When david was ready there was the sound of marci a lot of people think. Oh it's circumstantial. Maybe there was a breeze that hit the trees that kind of stuff. No no it was the angels of god that were coming and they made the sound of marching. It wasn't the rustling of leaves. It was marching. It was feet. It was the army of god that was coming and so then david when he heard that they attacked from behind and there was a complete victory over the phyllis states because god helped him now the second reference when we talk about the sound of chariots remember when The syrians came out against the samaritans. And they encircled city elisha. The prophet was involved and they laid siege to the city and it was great. Famine horrible. Things were happening. People were dying of starvation. They were there was the eating of children. Bad things that were occurring but god came in on the scene and one night the samarra. The syrians awoke to the sound of chariots. Now they were men of war they were an army. They knew what that sound was. They heard the wheels of the chariots. They heard the pounding of the horse's hooves on the earth and they became very frightened because they thought a great army was coming against them. And indeed it was. It wasn't just trickery wasn't psychological. Thing was the angels of god that were coming. We see that repeated so many times in the old testament and so they just fled and then there was victory there and then the people went out. And you know we're able to gather up and and take provisions and so forth so those were the two stories that god was referencing because he knew that it's not technically in our day and time you know the sound is going to be slightly different. We have different technology Different forms and i knew at the time when the lord was saying this to me and i began to hear the sound that it would come in many different forms. That would come in news reports it would come and court decisions It just the sound of all of that is the angels that were moving in washington. Dc they are beginning to do spiritual warfare and coming against what. I call the ruling political spirit of jacksonville and also anti christ. We find on the far right. What i call the ruling political spirit of pharisee So far left far right spiritual involvement behind the scenes influencing people to do things that are not in line with the plans and the purposes of god.

Well there are the websites word of life. World outreach dot org and mike thompson ministries dot org dot com. The address of our building recording studio church is ninety. Forty one South paco's road in henderson sweet. Four thousand. alright. I'm on youtube and also on facebook. I'm everywhere your everywhere. Well you you've been on this program and we kinda got your your background the last time but just to reprise a little bit because just the other day you came on your youtube channel and delivered. What struck me as particularly power fall Vision that god had given you. It was really compelling. And i said i would love to get you on the program to share that with my audience. Many of whom are very ignorant of of this kind of thing And i think they shouldn't be. Because i think we need hope and it strikes me that You and a handful of others have been delivering some hopeful messages from god which Which we need at this time in this nation so But before you do that just just give a quick background on. When did you start hearing from god in this. Obviously supernatural way. Well i didn't come by it naturally. My wife she k- had been experiencing these things oliver live but when we just shortly after we married we received the baptism in the holy spirit together until i began experiencing insane and developing and training. Myself then to hear the voice of god. I didn't know how to do that before. But very quickly. It began to develop in my life. What year are we talk. When did you get married. Unc c. k. Our well that put me on the spot. Seventy two holy seventy three seventy three seventy three. Your were coming up on our fifty. Yeah you're you're. I predict it's going to last. I think the first fifty years are always say yeah. My parents made it to like sixty five so we think we're good. How wonderful well. You obviously got married young. I gotta say that There are many people who listen to this program. You don't either. They don't understand what we're about to discuss. Or maybe they're hostile to it for some reason so I i want to say again. The reason that i have you on is because you're one of those voices that you're you're very careful it strikes me very seasoned in in how you talk about these things because it's important. This is such a big deal that we can't afford to get this stuff wrong but you shared some really wild stuff recently and i say wild. I don't mean off. i just mean it was it. Was it struck me as a as important and I i just love you to to to share that if you would oh yes well. I've had a lot of experience. A lot of asians over the years so like you said season just by experience you learn and you always submitted to the word of god because the word of god is the grid but all things come by the word and the spirit so what occurred to me. is in this encounter with god. I was praying. It was thursday night. I was right down here in this recording studio was walking around praying and the spirit of god just took me into the supernatural the spiritual realm and it opened up and i was taken just kind of up over. The united states went over to washington. Dc and. i was in an elevated position. Now eric this is a. I know a lot of people. While guys fruitcakes you know but now it's real. And it's the way that god intended for his children operating supernatural. We all wanna wanna be clear. Like i've got has spoken me number of times. Not nothing like what. You have shared Am i have a number of friends. That seem to hear from god in these. Very dramatic supernatural ways. It's a particular gift that god has given you and We had chris read on earlier this week and amanda grace and others. But what's interesting to me is how it's not the same for any. Two people of chris read shared dreams. They were clearly.
"thompsons" Discussed on Marketing Trends
"And make it just as easy free to purchase from them than than amazon. And because i think they've they're building that intimate relationship with consumers through loyalty through the programs like more of this it gives your propensity to want to buy from them and it shows their their their sales and their performance year over year especially in the last six years has been a nominal switching gears. A little bit here toward how you think about marketing. you think about getting a net new customers. I'd imagine you know like you said you. You have your top thirty clients that That drive a bunch of a bunch of revenue for you all but going to new client and saying hey we want you for seventy plus years like the marines is probably not probably not ready to go so curious. How do you think about channels and engagement for forgetting new customers. Yeah i mean a lot of our sort of demand. Gen is around thought leadership so we have a lot of partnerships with The technology companies like adobe and salesforce and will co author thought leadership with them and those are tools that will use for demand generation. Also clients love to see what other clients are doing right. They wanna see that you've done something great for a retailer or another. Cpg company or you know they want to know that you have that industry expertise so anywhere that we can share those stories you know without giving away trade secrets obviously but sort of show that we understand their particular challenges in their particular problems. The unique thing about the advertising industry is there's a lotta of search consultant dr been. Rfp is so brands higher Folks to run sort of lake search for them and the great thing about being at wonderman thompsons. We get invited to the dance all the time. Because we're a large agency people know who we are part of. Wpp so we have a profile. That's known inside the industry. The problem is is. We still try to pick people in an old school way. And if i could wave a magic wand i would. I would want clients to reach out and connect with people more personally. This is a people business. You're not getting a widget when you leave working with us right. You're going to get a strategy. You're gonna get creative. You're going to get you know. Technology plans and implementation. But you're you're you're buying a team so to work with you side by side. And so if i were on the other side and i were a client i think that i would encourage more interviewing of the actual humans that are going to do your work on but that we still do of advertising ads on length. Dan and Sites that we know business are on with our thought leadership and our thought leadership pieces and our case history in our case studies and it definitely attracts them. End up filling out excel spreadsheets and procurement takes over. And we you know again. We're we're putting information into boxes instead of meeting the creative director meeting strategy director learning You know the e com strategists in who they are what their individual experiences. I think when clients do that. They have a much more valuable evaluation criteria than if they look at the excel spreadsheet. That has all the sort of box checked of what you're looking for yet. It's a great point. I mean. I think that that's part of the thing. That's so hard about agencies is is there like marketing as an agency is like what are they really going to hang their hat on the features and benefits that differentiate. Because oh we you agree creative. Everybody has great creative. You have great year. Everybody says they have great. If i should say hey you have like you know support. Oh everybody says they have great sports. It's like there's so many. It's so hard to differentiate in you see this especially with smaller agencies trying to figure out like where they fit in and it's almost like taking a larger agency and just boiling down the talking points and it's like well that definitely is ena make you stand out which is super niche players. Do well as 'cause like they're so focused on only one thing but it is hard to stand out and it's hard to develop relationships and if it's really hard to stand out than the depth of the relationship and the engagement is more important. So how do you think about getting in front of people to like. Show how you think rather than tell them how you think. Yeah so we we. The sort of thought leadership that were marketing right now is around sort of our cookie lewis feature so we've developed a tool called resolve in. It's really were calling it sort of privacy first personalization and you know as cookies. continued to go away and diminish oregon us first party data with partner data in a i to sort of get to those high value audiences and a lot of agencies are talking about that right now and so what we wanna do. Is we want to sort of for you. Know almost like a free console right. So we've been doing this. Wonderman has this huge legacy business. Lester wonderman literally invented direct marketing in so with this great heritage and now the world is completely changed in completely upside down once again and so what is cookie being. And how can we help you and your team. You know navigate that and so one of the marketing tools that we're using is maybe get a chance to get to know us right like sign up for the consultation. Sign up for us to take a look at where you're at because we find when we can when we have our smart people. Talk to your smart people about a specific problem. We're gonna stand out we're gonna stand out better than shouting from the rooftops where the best or trying to show you a case study. You'll get to know the humans behind that are solving the problems and so far it's been pretty effective. I mean we've we've had a lot of people that have shown interest than wanting to take the time to understand how we might solve the problem specifically for them and then it's a great tool because they fall in love with person x. y. or z. In may and if they wanna keep talking and they want us to go further you know. That's a paid engagement. And so that is definitely a strategy using more and more especially in sort of post covid world of you know how do you how do you get to folks without meaning momentum event or going to see. Es or some of these major trade shows and things that we used to all attend in the past gone up front stoop and all that stuff. Yeah i'm with you one. I think part of that is like that's all the fun stuff right like we took out a lot of fun stuff. Which stinks we wanna up fronts. We wanna go to film festivals. We want to go to you know to cool experiences that are memorable and allow you to be like. Oh that's where i saw. Melissa like i was i was watching. Drake like and we were talking about whatever But that's that is that is how you remember. Like i don't remember what she said. But i'm pretty sure she's pretty smart. That actually matters. Don't have those tools. You kinda have to think embassy. And i think also i think this is a huge problem for agencies. I think that everybody right now is just in this or not everybody. A lot of people are in this. Try before you buy type mindset where it's like you have all these software tools that are like first month.
