Towns, Edwards Stick up for Each Other After Timberwolves Loss to Heat
"While john. You're at the center of a pretty entertaining moment at a press conference. Recently after the timber wolves played against the heat and their former teammate. Jimmy butler can you tell us about the exchange you had with t. Wolves players anthony edwards. And karl anthony towns after that game. Yeah it was entertaining. And that's for sure. Tiffany as people may know. Carla anthony towns and the timber wolves in general have a little bit of a history with jimmy butler. He orchestrated his way out of minnesota. A couple of years ago there was no love. Lost so the timber wolves. Replaying the heat in miami. And it was a kind of renewal of the good tidings. If you might say between. Karl anthony towns jimmy butler kurlansky. Towns are really going at it. And they're gonna call technicals on jimmy. You picked up some of that. Otherwise people listen for themselves until after the game of course we have to ask our towns about that. Where where your emotions running high at that point where we're going through your head is that game came to an end there. It just so happens that he and anthony edwards doing a joint press conference and anthony edwards really kind of stepped in and took the reins mandate grown man. Let me just talking having a regular compensation gagged me me. Y'all come to see us compete. It's no competition. If we not six it was just a really illuminating kind of exchange tiffany because here's a nineteen year old rookie. Who understands that. The veteran right by his side has never been one that wants to engage in the public kind of mudslinging that jimmy butler let many players in the nba enjoy. Doing he always wants to stay above that. And anthony edwards understood. That and said i'm gonna make sure that squash this before it becomes a major thing and he did just that
2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach
"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.

One Strange NBA Lottery, and What We Learned and Laughed About
"Let's start with a little draft lottery reacts from your draft, lottery experts no dogs no. Timber Wolves won the number one pick in the twenty twenty NBA draft last night after winning the League's annual draft lottery many entered the night with a fourteen percent chance of moving up to number one the same odds as the warriors and the cavs for best in the League. Best chance at that. So here's the full lottery breakdown for you guys at Number One, the wolves to warriors three Hornets four, bulls trae. Hawk six. Seven Pistons Eight Knicks Hilarious. Nine. Wizards. Ten Sons, Eleven Spurs twelve kings thirteen Pelicans and the fourteenth pick in the lorry goes to the Celtics by way of the Grizzlies. So the big winners yeah. Besides the wolves were those two teams that made significant jumps, you had MJ's Hornets moving up to eighth and trays bowls moving up from the seventh position. All the way up to number four congratulations to you is that a win in your books you'll love to see it. Somehow the Bulls aren't drafting seven I don't even remember what that's like what a summer for the Bulls Boylan, his gone second place in horse and now the fourth. Everything's turning up for Chicago I'm. Thrilled
Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing
"Michigan was one of the State's first at bat against a huge outbreak of corona virus. Michigan hit its peak in April reporting a high of more than eighteen hundred new cases on April. The third new cases remained above fifteen hundred for days that month Governor Gretchen whitmer declared a state of emergency by April first she closed all schools throughout the academic year hospitals were overrun even as workers faced layoffs and paycuts thousands. Of medical workers came down with the virus as they struggled to treat patients, and by the end of the month, the state ranked third for the highest number of coronavirus fatalities in the country Michigan struggled to bend the curve, but Michigan came through the curve bent. Now, the question is whether Michigan can stay out of the red zone and the state has seen a few smaller waves since the worst of it this spring, there was the outbreak last month that. Harper's bar the popular haunt for Michigan State University which reopened to an unexpectedly large crowd on June. The eighth local reporters found young patrons lining up less than six feet apart, and then packing the dance floor like they would on an ordinary non pandemic night. No masks to see in that picture state health officials later link that bar nearly two hundred new infections and today Michigan posted one of its higher totals of statewide new cases for the past couple of. Months and that's concerning especially because everywhere in the country right now, educators are trying to figure out how to get education going again it's basically every state and in some instances, every school district or even school for themselves at Michigan, State, in East Lansing, they're exploring a combination strategy that's going to be new to them, and that might be new for anyone else and it starts with a spit test developed at the university by neuroscience professor named Jack Lipton this man. The kit costs around three dollars a piece, and as you can see, it's pretty simple. You can do this in the privacy of your own apartment or dorm room you put your sample in the vial with the Little Barcode you seal it in the bag and Wallah your part is over the lab at Michigan State will take your sample and combine it with others in what is known as pool testing, which maybe you've heard about recently, the idea behind pulled testing is that it can help labs do more way more with weight less instead of having each person take their own. Separate test you pull the samples from a small number of people about a dozen and you run a single test on that pool of the pool turns up positive only then do you need each person in the pool to take a test but if the pool turns up negative, you're done the single test covered a dozen people in a place where you expect a lot of negatives. Pool testing is remarkably efficient at Michigan state. They're going to step further than that. Each volunteer who takes a spit test goes into separate pools of about ten or so people so think about it like. Two teams. You're Miami Dolphin and a Seattle Seahawk, or you're Houston rocket and in Minnesota Timber Wolves choose your metaphor. The point is if two pools come back with positive results, it can only mean one thing. The lab just finds the person who belongs to both pools using a handy grid like this one, and then recommends that that person get a follow up diagnostic test. It's like playing Bingo be six Bingo you might have corona virus. That's what Professor Lipton plans to do with samples from MSU volunteers testing two thousand of them every day and referring any apparent positives for an individual diagnostic test. Now, the third and most unusual part of this plan has to do with sewage scientists are discovering that they can spot a rising rotavirus cases early on by texting. Communities, Wastewater Michigan State, professor, Joan Rose and her team have been testing the campus wastewater. Since April she says, they noticed a peak in the virus that lined up with the news about an outbreak at a college hang out which demonstrated that there sewage diving expeditions worked I made that up I don't know if they're actually diving. For the testing this fall, the idea is to sample the wastewater from different places on campus so that they can get hyper local data if they can get good enough at sampling and turning around their result in a timely fashion, their work could act as an early alert system for Michigan State perhaps, even at the level of individual buildings. So you've got the pool testing with the affordable spit kits you've got expanded. Diagnostic testing. But literally just for those people who appear to be positive or just playing turn-up sick and then you've got the wastewater testing which increasingly looks like a functioning means of getting a warning in time to react if the plan works, it could help the university find and contain outbreaks. If it works the plan could help Michigan State and it's sixty seven thousand students stay on campus and have something like a semester. Joining us now is the aforementioned Dr Jack? Lipton. Of Translational Neuroscience at Michigan State University Dr Lipton. Thank you for being with us. We've heard about pool testing I want you to tell us a little more about it and why it it specifically helpful in this instance what what about Michigan State makes it a perfect candidate for the pooling of spit. What would you think about full testing end and Michigan state one of the things that you're that is really important to understand that the resources that we have is that university are fairly limited. Bright. But we're not a multinational corporation. So funds are limited resources are limited and pooling allows us to. have. More. More test being done with the same amount of resources or with less resources. So in this case, if we're dealing with supply chain issues with testing if we can test ten people with reagents that we would need to test one person, then we are were saving a lot in terms of of supplies, and if we don't have to run ten tests and we can run one test, we save a lot of time. So if you can save time and you can save supplies, you're going to Yeah. Ultimately conserve and that's really what our goal is and this. This works 'cause you're not expecting a large proportion of people to have this thing right. So generally speaking a bunch of these pools, we'll come out negative. Right. pools if you if you have about ten people in a pool in your expectation is maybe seeing two or three out of a hundred people. Show up positive than most of your pools are going to be negative. The more the prevalence increases the more the rates of infection increase. Then you're going to have more and more positive bulls. If one out of every ten people are positive than a pool of ten, most likely is going to have a positive individual in it. So you have to really balance pool size and prevalence together in order to come up with the right balance to save resources and save time. So the this actually could have broader implications There's a Wall Street Journal op-ed that you wrote about a previous test not this one that we're talking about, but it was a concept of pulling in you set across the United States tens of thousands of similar academic research labs have the expertise and equipment to help the country test for covid nineteen. If even one tenth of these labs joined the effort we could. Test an additional five, hundred thousand to one million samples a day. Your larger point here is that there are ways to get to more people and and then figure it out early rather than what we're in right now where there are some places where people are waiting in excess of seven days for typical test results in a in a concentrated environment like Michigan state you can. You can see things early and intervene. Absolutely and I think it's really important to note when you're talking about the pet that we put together. The vast amount of resources and know how that existed the academic laboratories universities across the country. Each one of the things that we've proposed was to develop biomedical National Guard and utilize all of these individual laboratories across the country and have them be organized through the federal government in order to be able to respond to pandemics or other natural disasters with biomedical know-how and that if we could get something like that done if the next administration is interested in doing something like that, we can be. Proactive instead of reactive in these kinds of situations. Wow. That's incredible because you just answer the question I was going to ask I was going to say, Hey, what can government do to take advantage of these kinds of resources and you just answer that I just want to say that again, a biomedical National Guard what a great simple idea resources all over the country run by different people but the the government of the United States providing the centralization for the data and the distribution. If you think about all of the laboratories and universities that were shut down as a result of the pandemic so many people were were sitting home like I sitting home on on zoom all day. If we have opportunity to come back into the laboratory and help. We can do so much in terms of trying to not only develop new new treatments and and working on new methods of detection, which is what our laboratory did during during April we can marshal all of these resources all. Know How that exists in order to to. Attack this problem in a concerted and coordinated way. Lifting. There's not a lot of great news about Krono virus, but I have to tell you after this conversation. I'm optimistic that there are people like you around this country who are actually in this moment while everything looks as grim as it is finding solutions that are going to help us see the other side of the coronavirus. Dr. Jack Lift Lipton is the chair and professor of translational neuro size. I don't even know what that is. We'll talk about that another time at Michigan State University. Thank you for all that you are doing and good luck to you at Michigan. State, we'll stay on top of this with you.

Warriors deal Russell to Wolves, get back Wiggins
"For people that missed it. The warriors and Timber Wolves agreed on trade us in the Ngelo Russell Jacob Evans in Amari spelman to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins a a top three protected twenty twenty one first round pick and a twenty twenty two second round pick. I like to steal from Minnesota. I think Karl Anthony towns and de Ngelo. They're obviously good friends. And that's big because towns it's been very frustrated recently but again let's get back to what the warriors got back in return. I'm not a big Fan. I'm not a fan of that that contract but I guess when you're the warriors they're already a situation where a lot of their guys are locked up so I understand that for them. It doesn't matter as much for another team they just Trying to add a guy that can help them on both ends of the floor and the contract isn't as big of a deal for them. But I just think with twenty-three-year-old all-star which is what Russell was he. He was an all star last year. I just don't think that's enough to get back in return. I do like that. They got the draft pick again. Talk Re protected. Twenty twenty. One should be a much better draft twenty twenty based on what the experts are all saying so in top. You're protected. I mean this Minnesota team made it could finish between four and ten could end up being lottery picked so I do think that is very valuable. That's my favorite part of the acquisition here for the warriors I just feel like with wiggins. He's been so disappointing. Maybe maybe they feel like they can help him reach us well potential. We know they've done a very good job of developing guys. They have great leader as a strong culture which may really help someone like wiggins. This could be totally wrong around here. I will admit that maybe wiggins goes there and this is exactly what he needed to reach us and become a better player in guys like Steph and clay and dream on push push him. I just feel like how did they wait until the offseason because they couldn't afford to be patient here. There really wasn't a sense of urgency. I would like to see if there were different offers or different teams that kind of came to the table. I just don't think this is the kind of package that you pounce on when you have a great trade ship and again twenty-three-year-old all-star and no roe pressure to make a move now so but I it is newsday what you're saying. Though had Russell and curry not work together you think that Russell's trade value could have diminished. So I see what you're saying. I'm just not a big Fan. I think that's my problem here. Yeah and I think for Minnesota standpoint It's a very interesting gamble. Because of course they want him as a free agent right and it's always nice to be able to sign a young player like that. If you get the right opportunity comes along but they miss out. It's so let's remember that to make this deal happen. They basically had to ship out Jeff Teague for basically nothing it trade Covington to get some assets assets kinda like sweet things up and they have to wind up trading wiggins out. It's actually make this deal happen with golden state so I don't WANNA say Minnesota gutted their assets but they actually you. You know invest in quite a bit to get Russell. Now the upside to doing that is you're gonNA have a very exciting offensive oriented team where you've got your best players are both all three point shooters with Karl Anthony towns and Diangelo Russel and they should fit together. Great in pick and roll it could pop situations right so for a fan base. That's been through a lot here. Typical era the Jimmy Butler you know You know being upset a few years ago in the long losing streak this year. I think there are some genuine hope and optimism with that pairing between those two guys. But I think my concern is that they really have stripped out a lot of their other proven talent around them and I think that both those guys are just minus defenders and that part it makes me nervous right. Because you know if you're trying to picture these guys is like this inside outside duo right well you want at least one of them to be a plus defender. And I don't think that's it's ever GonNa Happen for either one of those guys and so now it creates some roster challenges where you have to go out and target some other perimeter defenders guys who can help cover up for Russell in towns so that you can at at least be you know average on the defensive end. If you WANNA be a winning team so I guess long story short I think they invested an awful lot of assets. Just make this Russell thing happened and I'm not totally extolled. That he's the right guy to pair with towns but big picture. They did the most important thing which is keep Karl Anthony towns happy. He's their franchise guy he's been disgruntled. You you know for for months now because of all this losing and so I think they do get a short term went out of that.
Wolves to deal Covington as part of big four-team trade
"In the NBA we got Thursday's trade deadline approaching on the eve of that we had a four team deal involving the rocket talked timber wolves and nuggets the major pieces include center Clint capella going from Houston to Atlanta and for Robert Covington going from
Grizzlies' Andre Iguodala situation is ugly, but this is how the trade game is played
"The trade deadline is Thursday and by the way do you have an opinion on de Angelo Russell I I got to tell you this at first I was completely in favor of moving him but having gone to a few games Polly being is the partial season ticket holder and fill up man he is a beautiful score he really is and maybe the idea of him and clay and stuff on the same team is kind of intriguing you know not the roster destruction be interesting but right now the timber wolves aren't offering enough so the ways do you have to make a move though to get under attacks line otherwise have to pay a forty million dollar fine I think a lake of even as much as he likes his who concerts in his post Malone concerts and he's not looking to pay forty mil right so Alec Burks could move a blend Robinson could move yeah Amari Spelman could move Jacob everything will come on Looney could move by you gotta wonder what his future is I mean it's unfortunate because he was became such a dependable player for Steve Kerr but I mean I don't know is is he ever going to get back but the real story planned out is with our old pal Andrea you get done yeah how about this is a really weird story he hasn't played a minute from Memphis this year and by the way I think he's making like seventeen Mill seventeen seventeen Mill and I am a little unclear I've tried to read up in much again yeah one clear as to how he can just stay away like is there something in the CBA were like no you gotta come play for is like the guy in office space is again just not going to work anymore I'm just not going under you've missed a lot of games I wouldn't exactly say missing at and I by the way when it when Andriy does come back and go to practice the question is does he clean of fish on newspaper in the locker room do does the does god can offer yeah so anyway so they're going to try to move him and get some for him chained to a veteran team and now the Memphis Grizzlies having a surprisingly good here the twenty five and twenty five they actually hold the eight spot right now they do they got young players like John Moran and they got Dillon Brooks and Dillon Brooks finally just yesterday said you know what we young guys on the Grizzlies a few Andre staying away yeah you can email this
Michel Rauchs - Benchmarking Bitcoin
"So very happy to have Michelle on one of the first shows here to start the year in twenty twenty Michelle. Thanks for joining the welcome much batting. Yeah really appreciate you coming on. I've been wanting to have you on for a while. Actually just done You guys over there at Cambridge And curious to learn more about doing a pair of dignity and you've done Just wonderful wonderful work past few years in in Bitcoin and Crypto blockchain. Just a lot of fantastic nick research that certainly will linked to our users haven't already heard Of the work that you're doing but I guess just to just to start for those that don't no. Can you provide a little bit of background for us on sort of how you got into Crypto and Bitcoin and everything at Cambridge. Yeah sure so interested in Financial in systems and especially monetary systems so the different types of the exist how they achieve over time and then in house and cheating you once come up of slowly successions sessions and so yeah. It's been quite a bit of time researching and then I stumbled upon bitcoin into fourteen which interests Pretty much right away. I have had no idea what exactly was what it meant. And how he worked so is essentially took the form university. I need teams Just to research basic so getting benching computer science but also Economics Game Theory and even the politics of it and so as a result of this Masa `this is only kind business ecosystem so collected data of thing was around five hundred different even companies on projects in the space and visualize evolution of the system structure Over the first five years of its existence is that that's how we got into both cryptocurrency space and just off the wedge trading. I didn't we know what to do. Call the professor anew anew worst sees what it didn't know as he actually moved to Cambridge on to join the central ten defines these and pick a benchmarking studies and so I never wego almost study which was reason. I don't take the time you've got a job instead. So that was pretty good Any associate India There as assistant so we CO author team benchmarking studies where we reached out to companies in space but surveys and Indian off the yellow took over as the program and lost two years. They're doing quite a bit of studies and other things any indication Asian material in in that kind of stuff well presentations and just recently. Six months ago moved back to Mike. Country CI launched a consulting firm. You were essentially help. Individuals and situations to navigate. This complex landscape which is in most cases means convincing companies. Why light they shouldn't start to own the press? blockchain shamed him if you were think about alternate s. both internal technical as little so upon business perspective. It's very interesting. I think to describe it So that his DIG MMA your company. There you're referencing. What sort of Things than would would you direct companies to. What sort of sort of advice would you give them? If it is not to start their own enterprise blockchain in many cases. There is absolutely city. No need to do that so we came. She opened in one of the study. Said I offered said Cambridge with a term the cold the blockchain mean where it's pretty bad idea that blockchain this concept is one. We in abstract thing has become an abstract thing that can use as a political tool to either Detroit organizational change actually overcome organization in show. I'm so when we talk T- Stuff it's Eddie engine. Eighteen innovate bank. They if they sold the IT project which is essentially nothing else than Upgrade alone over to Um to infrastructure to essentially portrayal frame it as has a blockchain project. Then they will get executive buying and the budget to that. Although of course they knew they would use anything. That's remove close to what we would consider boxing. A which is waiting in because the guy gets better infrastructure The management has something to sell his public in terms of like. Look how over to your. Your engineering team is happy because finding the budget so in the end. It's kind of like a win win. Situation the only problem is that it just creates edition confusion. I guess at the Public Nick Timber. Wolves isn't what it can achieve so that creates a lease a very unrealistic expectations and so a rule. There is first and foremost almost Telling them what action actually is. Winning the project looks more like a blockchain move and then actually showing some alternatives so essentially focusing on specific civic elements log digital signatures like a public infrastructure cryptographic hashing algorithms in order to essentially a team that business case without atten overheads and disadvantages said in a real blockchain would actually cover okay. Is there a view. Then that you're taking specifically now regarding eighty enterprise consulting and blockchain's whether it's smart contracts on a theory or Peter. Todd's open timestamps on Bitcoin. Essentially many cases it's exactly that and so most companies would actually be better off by just Um Breglio occasionally Thompson thing system states in blockchain because that would just be a little more cost efficient and secure repudiation then building their own to know blockchain that's controlled by them but just in many tatum vans jazzy. Both thing the hype at least in the and the press blockchain industry or community of the hype is stated away and has given room to actually Syria's series initiatives now. Most of these initiatives have numb that much in common with these multi-party consensus systems. But it's we need more bads. It's a lot less about about multi-party consensus systems. But by creating shed infrastructure it's not controlled by one single entity more three consortium or joint ventures and and it's just taking a long time actually get to that point and that was mostly because of corporate governance talking about it's ten different things that our competitors and that we want to build a shed infrastructure that they use but nobody owns while that's quite complex and complicated Actually kickoff so now after we three four years of development of intensity station so we we see the first networks actually deploy and think it's actually really exciting developments. It has not that much to do. With willow would consider blockchain's more about its cryptographic shared infrastructure which deafening those benefits. Everyone involved including the end customer Indians. Well

"And now GM street. What was the part of the ringer podcast network? It is Wednesday January thirtieth in I m very very very happy to be joined on the line by the great, Michael Lombardi Lombardi it is Super Bowl fifty three week. How are you? I'm great tape. Fraser the question really is. How are you excape Minneapolis? I was talking to the great Paul Allen, the host of KFI in Minnesota this week, and we're at minus forty and I'm thinking about poor man tapers, you're out there. But you know, it's funny. The people that grow up now, nobody get used to this weather, but they kind of embraced the weather there, they embrace it. Well, there are certain type of breed because I tried to embrace Lombardi. And I came back with a very very very sick element the flu. But I did not I did come back with dignity. So that's the best. I can do. I was shooting a lot of scenes out in the snow in that negative degree weather. So you know in a tuxedo. So that's probably not the smartest thing to do. But it's all it's all for the good of the final. Four weekend, which will be back in Minneapolis for that in April. So I'll be happy to be there for that. So I I will be there in Minneapolis in April. I've got a couple of things for gridiron genius to do there at the final four because for whatever reason this book has become popular amongst basketball coaches. So that's a good thing. And and then, you know, the other thing I definitely would want to do on my bucket list. State frazier's. I watched the game the other night. I was watching Iowa play Minnesota. I gotta go to the barn. Like, I gotta go watch against bar. Now. I did I I have done when when I was in Cleveland we used to do this box test. I told you about where we would test players on this machine. And it was kind of interesting how we did it, but we always had to use a wood floor. So I I've been on some good coop courts. But but the barn I've never been on. And I would I gotta go to a game. They're just looks like it's just such a great venue. I watched that game in the timber wolves arena. While that was happening. I wish I was actually at the bar Mark Titus. And I watched that. As we were waiting for the jets take on the timber wolves in negative, be weather. I think it was negative ten at that point. While we were watching that game. So it was a good time to be in Minneapolis. You brought up gridiron genius. So I have to bring it up the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, Sean McVay, obviously, you have a few stories in there about the McVay family, and sort of you gave a hat tip to the fact that, you know, he it was one of the decisions by his grandfather to trade down, and sort of, you know, kind of set the tone for trade value with Bill wash and McVeigh said that is his book dole Peter King that that was the book that he drives the work and listen to so I have to point out gridiron genius. I really make waves here in the football circles. So congratulations, you Lombardi. I am beyond proud. Thank you so much day Frazier. Appreciate your friendship and support of the book. It's good to know. Yeah. I mean, it's been fun. I mean, look the Super Bowl coaches one of one of them the books about the other ones reading it. So it's it's a good thing. And I think, you know, Sean, McVeigh's grandfather John McVay for. People that don't know. He was. Football coach at the university of Dayton. And while a date, and he became friends with John gruden's dad Jay Gruden Jimmy Gruden. I'm sorry, and Jimmy and him had a lifelong friendship tell the McVeigh's and the gruden's have been kind of friends for a long time. And then you know, when I was in San Francisco, an I tell the story about this in the book, we had no intention of trading down. We were always a team that traded up in the year before we traded up from twenty eight only twenty eight teams to I want to say like nineteen with the New England Patriots to get in position a draft, Jerry Rice. And then we did we got him the next year..

"Joyce. Some crown don't be that person that ruins have forever. And we've all seen that guy who drank too much watching the game was Corolla that guy today, by the way, he was okay to who's. Okay. All right. Make the recall and take water breaks out who made the right call this week or not, well, I feel bad because we just discussed it. And it is ironic that a lot of. Cases. I think this guy was has been that person. But Sebastian Jankowski good job by you pulling up limp. You didn't help your team win by sitting out? But I don't think they would have won anyway and Seahawks. We're able to cover the spread with two two point conversions plus going for a touchdown when they should've kicked a field goal. So nice job sea bass, he he was just on the injury report as old they didn't even have it. It my Racal the week goes to the timber wolves. They they dumped Tom thebig today. Oh, yeah. And I was watching the Celtics play the Timberwolves the other night. And Gordon Hayward said to good games this year both against the timber wolves. 'cause the Timberwolves don't really work hard on defense at all. And just look like a team that was a drift. And I kinda wanna I wanna see Karl towns in the right situation. So yet he had the Jimmy Butler A Bola virus with them. Jimmy Jimmy took the virus over to Philly those infected that team, and and then the coaching situation is just been just hasn't been affair which I'm shocked by. I thought tips is gonna do great there. But maybe the direction the league has gone has just passed him by it so much more offense oriented than during his arrows bulls gorgeous. But I'd like to see towns. You know in the right situation as I have no idea how good he is. I know is super talented. I know he's a franchise guy. But I don't know what he is. So well, what about Tibbs could he could he end up as an assistant at Philly just to haunt Jimmy Butler because obviously that's not going so great. Well, the irony is that he would be an amazing lead assistant if that's insights through, but I do think he's getting paid whether or not he works. So if I were him out, just, you know, go go cool off somewhere. Try to wonder what Morong I don't know. What's going on that Jimmy Butler, then there's a lot of bad buzz floating around about what's going on in Philly. But anyway, that's right. Call this week crown Royal reminds everyone this football season to take a water break, and hydrate responsibly. Speaking of responsible, I felt like we got to be a little more responsible this week with with the gambling. I I make this mistake from time to time. I heard the playoff manifesto. I took Lamar Jackson against Phil rivers. I felt really good about. I love the ravens. I haven't been a long long shot Super Bowl thing. And I made the classic mistake of not just taking a deep breath and really thinking about it because as soon as that game started. And I realized that it was Phil rivers verse rookie QB who had eight starts. And I had the rookie QB. I did not feel good about it. So well, I mean, maybe there is something to that. Maybe the manifesto should just be limited to hey, take the better quarterback where whether it's road or home in the first round better quarterback. More accomplished quarterback was underdog was on the road this week. It was locked. All. Right. So Seattle than win. But Wilson covered who else? My neck falls. Tricky Nick salaries, the problem. So that is in the manifesto. There's there's two different quarterback roles. I re I did the manifesto. I rewrote it for a year ago on the ringer and there's two different roles one as I don't take shit quarterback. I don't think Lamar Jackson shady. Get a bad game. And the other one is take a look at the quarterbacks again in really think about it. You're picking one of these two guys they're probably gonna decide the game..

"One hour from now getting his thoughts is he'll be giving us a call live from Oakland, California because the warriors will take it on the Atlanta Hawks tonight. So we'll get his thoughts on number of MBA issues include the bulls are four foreign ten on the season. All right. Bowls. Former bowl Elton brand is a general manager of the Philadelphia seventy Sixers and he was able to broker a trade Tom four coach and president of basketball operations with the timber wolves. So it took place today. Sixers GM elm brand said the clubs trade for Jimmy Butler is an indication that Philadelphia has lost facing Marquel. Foltz, but here's the deal Jimmy Butler wanted out really badly. He really wanted out of Minnesota. And now I want to deal with Karl Anthony towns Andrew Wiggins anymore. Just trying to piece it all together. You know, Butler was traded to Minnesota. And I thought that was perfect for Jimmy perfect perfect. Meaning that Jimmy Butler will tell you he loves country music. And I thought that being in the twin cities that's perfect for him. He likes fishing, and he likes to do according to him the country life in is a little of that in in Minnesota. And so he's there and somehow he can't connect. He can't seem to lead at young timber wolves team. Now they were able to get to the play offs because they won against Denver. The last regular season game to get into the playoffs. In even though the team had was so rich and talented Jamal Crawford was on team Taj Gibson on that team. We mentioned Wiggins and towns and Jimmy Butler. And and Jeff t there's so many good players on that team. But yet they can never get over the hump. So Jimmy, get more and more frustrated because he says he looked at criteria Townsend Wiggins and didn't think that those guys were winners. And so at the last game of the playoffs for Minnesota. As the T wolves flew back to the twin cities Jimmy flew to L A on a separate flight. They want to be around the team. And then late coming into the season late, you lived and Kyrie Irving asking for a trade late. Jimmy Butler is like I don't want to be a minister anymore and Tom Izzo on bended. Knee says please don't leave me on Bennani begging Jimmy Butler, begging him not to go for this trade and Jimmy will eight when AWOL wasn't around for a while. And he came through the doors at the. Practice facility in Minnesota. And then challenged Townsend challenged Wiggins what other scrub players I'm Minnesota team. And then Jimmy Butler is able to pick and choose when he wanted to play which is unbelievable to me. Here's why it's unbelievable. If you know anything about Tom, you know, Tom through what does a guy that needs to have his control. He was the guy that when Paxton and garwood knock on the door the facility. Here on the west side. He wouldn't open his door to door closed to do his own thing. Didn't want to have the communication with Paxton gar sometimes. And so there was always a disconnect there, and so they would all who's all about control all about defense all trying to win somehow some way he let this whole situation slip through his fingers. I mean, he's not just the head coach. He's a president basketball operations. It's bad for him. He didn't handle this properly. Then want to make the trade and the Glenn Taylor. The owner was like, no, you're gonna make a trade and the trade now took place. There's two sizes trade that will fill off your side of things and just a moment. But Jimmy Butler had his press conference today because knives with the Sixers it's a roll the dice. Because Jimi still is a free agent at season's end of the deal took place anyway and Jimmy Butler is looking forward to playing with Markelle faults. He's a talented young player. I think that from what I can tell a lot of things are mental. And as league, I think ninety percent of it is is mental. If you think you can do something you really can. I know how hard he works because I'm in LA. I know that he comes by there and.

No, you're maybe selling sweatshirt your sweatshirt, isn't that a real you can't smell yourself? I'm not saying it's off your body odor. I'm saying it's in your clothing that.

You lose your license for life. Yeah. No. Thank you false Charrette last night. Duke played Kentucky Indianapolis in college basketball. Duke one big Thomas Jones who used to play for Duke is the place timber wolves. He was here in LA. Minnesota played the clippers on Monday night. They play the Lakers tonight, Tyson's younger brother trae was playing his first college game for Duke class night in Indy and Thais really wanted to be there. But he couldn't find flights that could get him there and back in time for the Lakers game. When Jimmy Butler heard about this. He chartered a private plane to Indiana to get Titus there and get him back Butler was going to go to but something came up. So he stayed here and told ties to take the plane anyway ties was there for the game last night, and he'll play for the wolves against the Lakers here tonight. Is there any game that you would do that for let's say you had to be an LA on Monday. But the Rams played in the Super Bowl on Sunday or the dodgers played a game. Seven would you ever go that big charter a private plane the cost of that trip? That Butler booked was around thirty K. So theoretically, if you didn't want to spend all thirty K the plane, flew would fly six to eight people, you might be able to get seven friends, and you all pay about four K each to charter that plane, which makes it a little more reasonable would you ever go that? Big for an event absolutely zero percent chance in the house. The first house that that we had after the trailer right cost about thirty thousand dollars. Right. There is no way I could be that wasteful and spend money that exorbitantly to rent a plane. I even though what I was doing those sooner or later. I will it will be no problem. I'll be able to do it. I would say the answer. The honest answer. The question is. Well, it depends. How much money I had at the time. But here's what I was my favorite part about that story. What a good guy Jimmy Butler. Is this true hurt that his breath this guy? This guy's a rookie or second-year player..

I'm not convinced that third year player was going to be a star body, say it's star. Larysa means, how does floors starve if I want Derrick rose to flourish and the timber wolves system in order for the Lakers to be good, they need a second star in for me to flourish.

Is it good season for Brandon Ingram this year for you? School just filling his role. A stark them in it, though. Flourish, flourish and star. Well, now look at that team.

"It's time for you to take us behind the curtain. To be Butler mixes way under the rundown for like the fifteenth straight day. This is interesting. Take us behind the curtain on this is technically a member of the timber wolves. We all know he's not a member of the timber wolves, but he's using the timber wolves facility while the Timberwolves are away. Take us behind the curtain. How does he have access? What is the facility? Like? What's he doing in Minnesota? Is someone working out with him worse for the team? Is this a violation of hymns his? He clearly doesn't wanna play for the team, but still wants the benefits of their facility. Walked me through the whole. It's professional protocol at play that benefits both parties. If you're a timber wolves, he's still a member of your squad and you hope to move him, but you can't do it if you diminish his value. So you hope that he's training. Oh, and you want him to be healthy. And you hope that it's happening in your facility so you can monitor it so he can have his personal trainer. But everybody else in the building, our employees up team. So when Glenn Taylor Tiven does on a phone, he can say, yeah, he's working out every day. He looks great. We're actually working with them, keeping them in shape. He's ready to go. If you give us Bentsen ins, would you can have him and he'll be starting tomorrow because if you saw other video footage and say he was in Miami, hanging out with Levy on bail while they were on their west coast trip might not help trade value. Karang. I understand. Jalen rose. I'm bullish on the rockets this year. I liked Carmelo, Anthony and the rockets. He made his preseason debut yesterday and he looked pretty good. And then there was this play. I found very interesting up fakes three because defended in the air takes us up in his jump shot. That's exactly what you're taught to do that with. I was ten years old and then on the way back to the bench, he says, my bad to the coach till rose up three got the defender in the air made a jump shot and apologize to the rockets veg. What is happening with basketball, their franchise. What is happening with basketball is one of the teams at the forefront of the analytics movement led by their more and the philosophy is either shoot three take a layup order or dunk and or find a way to get to the free throw line. What was wrong with that play that play by mellow. One of the. Latest scores at the game has seen should in needs to continue the hap. Thank you because he was not on that. Play able to drive all the way in. He did make it and the kickout would not have led to an open shop. The one thing that has happened when you go by that theory, you under estimate the things that come with putting pressure on the defense like drawn files when you get to the line, guess what you do slow down a game. You slow down the game. They have to take the ball out of the net having they have take the ball, your defenses set. You get the other guy foul trouble. So they're things that I understand and agree with as it relates to that movement, but I'm not going to put all of my chips in the middle of the table because of what I just said, I've watched a lot of Jalen rose highlights in my day. That's money, right? They're all mid rain, no doubt like you never took it to the basket nor did not gonna shoot over nobody. Does. It just seems like everything happens in cycles and trends, and it's not going to be just threes layups for the rest of turn ity. And also if you're scouting team and you know, they only take threes labs, you can defend them in a certain way to take away the threes in the layups. I promise you, if you look back to play off runs ago, not the year, Chris, Paul got injured, but the year prior to that were James harden was invisible in game six when lost to the Senate Tonio Spurs that entire series in cover in that series..

"Can only get so much out of guys i mean you can have you can run the best defense in the world but if you guys don't hustle well you can do about it there's also two guys the two stars of the team who seemed to have an issue with everyone else and that's andrew wiggins and karl anthony towns so there's a divide within that team because you have the young guys who make a lot of money who are quote unquote the stars right and then you have a bunch of guys who know who've been with here in chicago taj gibson jimmy butler marcus t wasn't here but he is a guy or now jeff jeff teague he he's a guy unfortunately marcus was here he's a guy who's one in the you've a lot of veterans who get what they're trying to do and then you have the two guys who are the stars who you don't always get the same effort from right so that's the problem is when towns in wiggins click onto the fact that if you give the effort in the hustle and the defensive side of it every single night this team's going to be really good there are some games where towns you know we were talking earlier about darvish how he he seemed to relax after he got two outs there are times when towns is playing where he looks like he's just he's playing in a park district league hinted at an issue within the the locker room and the old guard who are a bunch of new players soda but veterans and then the two young guys who make all the money they also we'll see how that goes for the rest of this round sources close covering the timber wolves covered the bulls who also stood up in my wedding and now and now he's covering he's covering milwaukee in boston nick we're gonna talk with nate duncan from dunkin podcast talk some more nba at the bottom of the hour but really quickly it's we can't go any further without saying yesterday first rookie since magic with a playoff tripledouble ben seven seventeen thirteen and ten as philadelphia took a three one lead over miami one zero six one to talk about chippy radic again jj running play the best basketball of his career right he'll be free agent that summer too i mean he signed that one year deal deal for twenty two million to join.

"Were they took care of business kind of blew it up i think like fifteen they came back another fifteen point lead in the third quarter and then ended up winning by twenty by the end of the game so turns out jimmy butler helps yes so so i was watching the game on and off it'd be obviously my tracking score and stuff like that but we're at a point where there's like so many means games on some evenings and i still remember recording with chris axeman on about the christmas day games and i remember the one comment i made about minnesota was it was more work than it should have been to beat the lakers teamed up the lakers have been a better than the second half and they were in the first half i dunno record wise but just in terms of like being a tough times right yeah i was concerned about that game honestly because and we'll get into it but i i've been viewing the timber wolves without jimmy butler as maybe a middle of the pack team in mba maybe like and so and so going into a game on a back to back against the lakers who think the lakers are middle of the pack nba team i'm an admin this the second half of the year they they beat the spurs in overtime on wednesday a couple of days before that and i was i was i was concerned about that i have the wolves on similar plane as the lakers i think it showed that the wolves had more to play for the lakers did but it got to this point whereas concerning that maybe the wolves just aren't even it it is concerning that if the wolves aren't a playoff caliber team without jimmy butler that's a that's a pretty big red flag it is.

"Playoffs i mean that fan base has already pretty angry at everything that's occurred because hoodie tips was brought in to fix the defense their defense is atrocious and their defense has been bad all year and that was with jimmy butler so they somehow missed the playoffs oh man on top of the fact that tips as like twenty four million left on his deal the glenn taylor signed him to a couple of years ago i mean that is that would be a huge mess but the flipside of that is you know if the timber wolves can somehow find a rhythm in win out you know that them hosting a series still isn't out of play as a potential i i think it's a a major stretch but the possibility is still there especially if jimmy reappears here so there are a lot of lingering questions but that was such a a story that people were hanging onto in a positive way a few months ago the tip started to turn things around there if you fall all the way out of the play offs oh man that is something that that's a whole i don't know if he'd be able to to climb out of because there's so much frustration within that fan base what's who's the better team to get an eight spot is it the timber wolves the pelicans with the nuggets good question i have not watched the nuggets or pelicans as much this season live i would still lean towards and i say this is as somebody who does not believe in the temples i would still lean towards you bring jimmy butler back even playing thirty thirty two minutes which is probably where he'd be to start whenever he returns i would take jimmy butler as a guy who could help push them into the postseason over those two other teams for his great as anthony davis is i don't think he's got a ton of other help on that roster aside from jrue holiday and and the the nuggets i think they're still a year away from making a little more noise so i would still i still would lean on jimmy being that difference maker at least in these last couple of games here my friend is always i appreciate your time.

"Other stuff we can also get into by the way if not that this is going to hold because this is i don't know if this is the weirdest nba season because the east and the west kind of mirror each other the raptors are going to get the number one seed in the east there five up on the celtics with twelve to play celtics though are six and a half up on the cavaliers only a half game up on the wizards were tied with the pacers were one up gay on the sixers who were one and a half up on the box or a half game up on the heat so they're set as far as one to eight it's just from three to eight there's about a three and a half game difference in the west it looks like with twelve to play in given the warriors current health situation three up on the rockets with rockets having lost fourteen all year doesn't look like they're going to catch him but they're nine up on the blazers blazers to up on the thunder in a three way tie for fifth between the jazz pelicans and spurs the timber wolves a half game back that in the nuggets or one and a half games back of that so it's not like we could sit here and start looking at matchups with twelve games to go but just because it's sitting here right now do the spurs still have that nervousness factor if they did because two seven right now with spurs warriors you still have a nervousness factor let's assume for a minute the quite comes back and we don't know it was like he's not gonna come back he is going to come back but we're still waiting for him to come back so it just seems that whole thing's still seems really weird but of course is back with this spurs team and you see the spurs in the first round and it's popovich and blah blah blah is there is there a nervousness factor because it's the spurs that's this just isn't saying team.
