Wear that mask all right Shannon. How rest where you? Look! I'm talking to see some good and I'm not talking one. He got from falling off his bike when he was a child I see some definition and eat look better and Brandi yeah. Go, see you. Can't with you I can't with, but I'm happy to see that skipping. It looks to me because remember. Diane missed a lot of training camp. Way missed because he got hurt in their thinking the Somaly in he had the surgery, and so he was rehabbing. rehabbing is not the same as training I. Think him being healthy this break. He got an opportunity to train or train. And you see what it's done to his body. That is the only thing really that can slows I on Williamson down. The inability to control his weight and have to deal with ticky tack. Nagging injuries have said it from day on this guy right here. Look phenomenal. That guy can last. Yes, the first guy that we saw is going to have a hard time, yes. Somebody has gotten to him and explain to him that what that you are what you put in your mouth? Yet I. Yes, he apparently is eating correctly. And as you know through the quarantine, you can go either way because sometimes you get stuck and you just say your little little depressed, you know. But somebody went to the right way that I winner right, you went the right way. Lebron with the Right Way Zion really went the right way that will work. I'm going to remind you got off to a pretty good start nineteen games. He's twenty four and seven rebounds. And his fifty nine percent shooting for players who've taken fifteen or more shots a game that leads the NBA that is working and all of a sudden. That team is starting to work because my man. Lonzo ball the last five games. It seems like five years ago, but over the last five games, the twenty, one eight and eight, he was making fifty one percents of his threes over those last five games. You still have you got drew holiday. You look down the roster and you've got Lonzo and Josh hard. Obviously the guards in listen. This team is loaded with young talent. Okay, but do you believe they can catch Memphis because them I think Sacramento and Portland all three and a half back with only eight games to play three and a half back. I would love for them to for entertainment values much as I like John by the way to Jaaz credit. Yeah, he took the quarantine and went the other way in a good way. He beefed up I. Mean you put some muscle right? He looks like a professional basketball player instead of a skinny college kid way to go. John Mirant he needed to lean out. John Needed to put a little bit of of definition. On this is your job now. I mean you eating in being all cool. You don't eating in the dormitory. This is a profession and this is make hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars doing this, so it's best I mean. Look at the top guys. Look at all of these guys from James Harden Lebron guys have shifts, and so as you come in you like. Hey, I want to play an extended period of time I want to maximize. Maximize my opportunity and I will get me. I will have the one prepared by me. I'm not saying you gotta eat. Every single meal may Shep sure enjoyed. But I'm saying for the most part the lion's share you should be nothing. Bore your body so that nineteen year old. He's still nine ninety four days from twenty, but at age nine nineteen, he was selected one of the three NBA two K. Twenty one covers the one for next Gen. A lot and nobody took Lebron like twelve years to get on the cover. Kobe, I think Kobe's in Dame Lillard. Does a huge accomplishment Katie. Live up, yes, he. I, mean he? He's on the right. I love this I. Love it because. You're away from everybody quarantine like you said he could went. The other way can ooh, and then all of a sudden. He comes out and he's looking like that he'll get value on. Love to see him in the eighth seed who? You are they going to get it? Yes, or no, well, it's the odds are way against them an eight-game. GOING GONNA have to go eight now and hope for some help, right? They're gonNA have to have at least six into. Mental I think boy I. Think you need to go I think you need to win them all when you're three and a half back with. Kobe covers Memphis three games. Is basically so you gotta go be fixing to to in Memphis. Go three three five, just regardless seeing him look that ready and prepared. I don't know direction. I went the other way but I'm motivated now to get back to the gym and work out, and I even set up like skin. Shannon I'm.

"Point seven five million deal with the patriots raised a few eyebrows, but cam took the instagram yesterday to explain why he would agree to a minimum deal. He said this is not about money for me. It's about respect so Shannon degree with Kim's point here. I need to find that affect. Take you along do. Look. Cameras right towards certain extent because there are certain things that money can't buy, but knowing if you have. Those people got to respect you. Sometimes, they go hand in hand, but I think in this instant. What cameras talking about? He's like I've survey thirty two teams obviously one. Let me go. There's probably like ten twelve teams that the star is entrenched, no problem whatsoever, but if I kept surveying I looked around I'm better than some of the scarred of the backups on these teams, and they did reach out the lack of respect. They have for me. Cam Newton former. MVP when. They would call and guys out of retirement when they didn't want to sign cap now available. And I can't get a call if it's not about the money, skip if I'm an actor and I've been and I've been agree I won. I won an Oscar, which is the greatest achievement you can win. The Ad Kademi than banking and all the sudden I have a have a bad movie in. Nobody gives me a call and I get this I. Get this role. It's not the role that I wanted that what I'm used to being in, but somebody gives me a chance like the lack of respect is not about the money. It's not about the role. Yes, okay. Yes, I'm a supporting role now. I know what I can do but I see guys is getting these moves. They're not better at what they do. The Nile, so and saying okay. You know what I won't take this role. I won't be give healthy and I'm GONNA show. You and I'm going to get my respect back. I'm going to change the narrative of what you have about Cam Newton because the narrative. Get as you mentioned. Is that the last four years? He hasn't been good. He hasn't been good that twenty fifteen feet for that one big flash of streak in two, thousand, eight, hundred, twenty, eighteen hurt, his shoulder kept trying to play through. Yeah, know realize that you know Cam. They don't care about what it took you to get there. All this one and they see Newton on the back. They expect you to be great. So I. believe cameras upset skipped because he knows that he's better than a lot of these quarterback that has starting jobs and had backup jobs in some of these teams didn't reach out, didn't even call it, and so that's that probably hurt more than anything when you made that kind of money. Yeah okay I got I got to start from the bottom and work my way back up I got no problem with that. cameras may may great great money and. You'll be okay. He just needs to go out there and show that he's still Cam Newton. He just needs an opportunity. That's it. Still, not completely sure he's going to get that new. England we'll find out. But Cam Newton. At an injured shoulder got it fixed. He had an injured foot lists. Frank Surgery got it fixed. You'd think he's been clear, right? Now. He has an injured pride in is wounded up. And you can't surgically get it fixed, right? You can only go back out there. If somebody will give you a chance, right in show them. They were all dead wrong. In. I do disagree with this premise, but but it's coming from a place in his heart. That's hurt right, but his premises. That money can't buy respect. Yeah, but but when people pay you money, they're paying you the respective. There's what you did. Yes, in this world we live in. Your respect is measured. Unfortunately in the end by your salary, it is okay. So Bill Belichick got away with paying him barely one million dollars. It's the bare minimum a veteran of camps ilk. Years he's putting. What does he nine years? That's the bare minimum you could have paid him. It's one point five million right that ranks nine hundred eighth of salaries paid in the NFL that ranks fifty eighth quarterbacks salaries. And it just seems so wrong that this guy was an MVP. This guy dominated the league for a year, and in a stretch in twenty thousand, also in lifted a team in two thousand, fifteen to the super bowl, the fifteen and one record. And this happens we're the league rejected you to the point that Bill Belichick got away with paying you that there are incentives, though even got away with paying incentives that are unlikely to. Right, and they don't count against the CAP, because your stats were so bad last year because you didn't have any threats that he got away with paying you stats that qualify as Unlikely to be earn. Incentives you know why because I can't control those someone else can control those Kip, saying my contract one year, and and I signed the contract because when I signed his Kip I was playing mostly special team. So if I get X. amount of touchdowns, make the pro bowl make all pro, so I've been getting five thousand here. But I led the team in receiving how two thousand and had a thousand yards guilty I'll get a hundred thousand dollars. Okay, now I needed a hundred and twenty, one hundred and twenty six yards in the game playing the raiders now the paper. There's so much. If we win the game, we win division. We get home field. They come to us. We lose the game. They win the division. We gotta go back to them to follow when we were. Need you need one hundred twenty six yards to get get one hundred thousand dollars skip. I got one twenty one in two and a half and don't catch another payers. Seriously what year was this ninety three? And then I go back following, we can drop thirteen, fifty, three, fifty six Oldham in a playoff game, which at the time was the most receiving with most reception in a playoff game in NFL history. Do you! Are you suspecting coach Shannahan new? which might wasn't there the only one they. Came Ninety five. That's right I. Don't know what was suspected. Who is calling the plays? Jim Muscled it. No, I don't know who knew, but I remember telling outlet member. Jon. Call them teeth. They. What's going on tea's like I, say man. I'm disappointed. We lost as a I needed five yard data underground.

"Fresh all the talk about black lives better. Can we do something meaningful before we start planning the black national anthem? Nobody asked you to play. What if the NFL did nothing? How would you feel we're doing now? We had to Rudy Room. They had to go back at anthem or paragraphs and more language, the Rooney rule. But if I'm talking about on week, one if there were no symbolic gestures, if it just came and went, would you be offended by that? Because I hope that they don't think because people are not in the street like they were the first month that this is going away is not going away. SKIP is not. Beget People's people. Filing skilled people are starting to see man I can see. Progress can be made it so now we. Hold people accountable. Man. So I thought a lot about this last night because it hit me in my head and then all the way down to my heart. that. The black community has needed its own national anthem. That's all you need to know. That's how sad that is. The gravity of that hit me right between the eyes last night. I've known about lift every voice. It's always been an. It was a originally. That was put to music by two brothers. Is Beautiful if I. I would encourage everyone black white color. No refill lyric. Call it up on. Google for the lyrics of the song and just read especially the middle verse is stunning to me right. But. If, we're going to play the black national anthem. Then the national anthem backed back before the game. It almost feels like Toronto's playing. Golden State in the NBA finals. We gotta play the Canadian and. And it's like there's something wrong with this picture right because. Silly me idealistic me I grew up thinking one nation under God indivisible well. Over and you grow up looking at it completely upside down. Okay so I have been enlightened and I have seen and felt and from my perspective. As much as I would love for us to have one anthem that we all could believe in you. You have needed for years. Your anthem made. They'll come a time when you don't, but the important point is it? Do we need this symbolic gesture to go onto? We need to play your national anthem every game all year. We used to keep the conversation going to keep the focus on what really met. Obviously what matters the most is what I have campaigned against for like fifteen years. It is unarmed, black men and women getting killed by white, running murdered by white cops. That's the first. Thing that needs to be attacked first, and then after that were already to a point of enlightenment to racial sensitivity where we are tacking all of the vestiges that got grandfathered in of slavery statues symbols. Take them down. Take them down. We talk about George Preston. Marshall Net nickname Redskins, will they? They took a statue down outside RFK. Take them down right. So this is all progress, but it's just baby steps toward the ultimate goal, so I sympathize with the national football league. Trying to think what what okay. How do we do this well to me I? WanNa, see kneeling and I. I wouldn't mind hearing the black national anthem every game all year I. Don't know how you feel about that. That's my two cents from this side of the table, but we need to keep the conversation going. We cannot so to speak. Let it fade to black because it can't fade to black. All this will be lost all this moment in time with the doors and and minds open will be lost so I I would advocate hearing this song before every game ahead of our quote, unquote national anthem just to keep it top of mind. We just went through. That's just my. By little. Lead to bring about change. Got It I got it, but you know and I know focus will bring about change this conversation. Strong conversation will bring about change in Bali, is not symbolic gestures, but we do know that Minnesota's saying no more chokehold. Okay, that's a small start, right? Out Loud. But. If the politics in because that's what because you have to the Supreme Court said. We have to look at the police officers not as we sit here today. What was he thinking at the moment? Skip by US. The CHOKO. Skip impair for my life. His, that's what he failed. How do we question what he feels like given moment so therefore, he's allowed to use the comb booby. Did. It looked like he was in fear of his with a hand in his pocket. Exactly so doing away with qualified immunity. Skip I'm listening to some of the police. Do you know you have to give the police officer if he's accused of. The murder! You have to give him forty eight hours. Now if I kill somebody, they know. Why did you give me? Let me formulate what I'm. GonNa do and then you gotta turn over all your information. What the charges against him really? The only way to get it done the break the Union. Yeah, you gotTA break the unions. They gotta they gotTA. Better Warriors get. US In. A bigger typically and really literally. Skipped because they're so powerful. That nobody wants to take him on. Okay but doors have been cracked open and you gotta run through them. Yeah, right, but that's the thing script. Skip just just a crack Yup. Swing swing ride open.

N.B.A. Owners Set a July 31 Restart, All in Florida
"Zach Lowe's senior writer for ESPN in host of the low post podcast. Zach. We're GONNA have basketball We think we're going to basketball. We'll see on July whatever July thirty first, or whatever, but yet knock on wood back on everything. Knock on heads. We stay healthy enough to have basketball. That's true I should never say anything definitively these days, but we are closer to having basketball because the NBA Board of Governors met on Thursday in voted twenty nine to one on a plan for the League to return. Return to play in Orlando at Disneyworld, twenty two teams, eight regular season Games in possible plan term, involving the eighth and ninth seeds We're GONNA have a lot of time to break down the logistics of all this how it's going to work from a public health perspective, weather not can work, but I wanted to bring you on today to talk about the basketball ramifications of this decision. Why do you think they went this particular route? Well. I think as you might expect. They were trying to balance money midst about basketball and love the game all at, but I think that it's mostly about. How can we maximize? That's why they didn't just take the sixteen playoff teams. They've tried to threadneedle of. Volume of games. Fairness to the teams that were in the eighth spot when when the seasons stopped in some potential excitement for play in teams, particularly the teams that were chasing Memphis in the western, mathematically had a decent shot, a much better shot than usual with seventeen eighteen games left to catch them. I want to talk about New Orleans and Portland particular, but I I wanted to ask why not think they went with six additional teams? Instead of four was America just clamoring for some wizards basketball, so watching the wizards. It's sort of like playing roulette. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose sometimes you leave the building weeping uncontrollably. The one thing wizards are not. This season is boring. Both those teams really wanted to play I think part of it was probably well. If we're going to have a plan in the West, it's GonNa Look Kinda dumb. If we don't have a plan in the East Lake of we just take the east team so I guess we gotta take someone. WHO's the least crappy east team left? Okay Washington. You get in well, then we have to balance it. So who's the next lease? Crappy West, okay, Phoenix urine I, and then suddenly twenty two. My opinion and I said this from the beginning, it should have been twenty. There's a hard quality gap after twenty I see no reason why these teams had essentially zero percent chance to make the playoffs are going through all this rigmarole adding seventy or eighty bodies. Me The reason why it doesn't really make sense to me is if you had told me okay, the western conference is going to have a plan tournament with three four five teams, and it's GonNa last a week or ten days and we don't want the Eastern Conference. Eight playoff team sands Washington just sitting there waiting I could buy that, but displaying tournament is not a tournament. It's one or two games. I just don't. It doesn't make any sense to me why those teams? They're not to pick on them. I just thought so get it. The PELICANS obviously were playing much higher level Oncein Williamson came back, and actually had a better point differential than Memphis for the season stopped Then you've got the blazers who are nearing full health right, which was due back after an injury marsh before all this happened. and. In hair and Nerkez the deck and Oh, I think he's hurt. His leg. Oh, his leg is right. Narco hits the deck. Which of those teams do you think is better situated to make it in Portland was also slated to have a decent easy scheduling. Everyone focused on New Orleans easy schedule because it was the easiest but Portland in San. Antonio were slated ABC. Schedules. I think you would have to go with New Orleans. Only because a they were playing really well already in. Be Like it's it's. It's exciting that use of Norwich and Zach. Collins are back in their. If their backup for these long layoffs, but they're also back after long layoffs in Nurkic in particular is coming off one of those traumatic leg injuries that it usually takes people a while to get maybe a year. Even a season at took Paul George Longtime for instance to get back to what they were before. So I think you'd have to go with new. Orleans but I would not underestimate portland.

Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.
Elizabeth Warren's Presidential Bid Comes to an End
"Senator Amy Klobuchar former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Brundige and former New York City mayor. Mike Bloomberg have all called it quits and today. We're adding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to that list. I will not be running for president in twenty twenty but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country have gotten short into the stick over another. That's been the fight of my life and it will continue to be so warrants progressive policy driven campaign caught fire last fall making her an early favorite to win the nomination but she had a disappointing showing in the first elections in the primary season. Including this week Super Tuesday with more on the rise and fall of Warren's candidacy we're joined by Wall Street Journal reporter Tarini Party Tarini. Last fall senator. Warren was one of the front runners for the Democratic nomination but today she became the last remaining woman among the top tier candidates drop out. How expected was this announcement at this point. Given what we saw on Super Tuesday Warren was essentially left with no choice. But to drop out there was all choose facing a lot of pressure because she didn't win a single state she came third in her home state of Massachusetts. And so you know as this race drags out with Joe Biden on one side and Bernie Sanders on the other. The more candidates who stay in the longer the Democratic primary could become. And that's something that party leaders are trying to avoid They WANNA be trump and so they think that the field should sort of consolidate And so they can have a nominee sooner rather than later and she just didn't see a path forward a viable path forward. She did not end. You know ahead of Super Tuesday. Her staff had said that they were looking at a contested convention as one of the ways that were left for her to essentially be the Democratic nominee. They were hoping that she would pick up enough delegates on Super Tuesday to make that case but she didn't get that far and at this point. She said she just saw no path forward. Let's talk about the rise and fall of her candidacy. Tarini people were talking about her back in two thousand sixteen. When Hillary was running right she chose not to run in two thousand sixteen. And this time around you know. She started off with a few missteps She really did get her footing back. She focused her campaign on Ground Game Organization. She built out a huge campaign that focused on raising money online That really Invested in field organizers in in the early states An early on she did start getting a lot of traction. You know if you go back to the late summer early fall. She was starting to become the front runner in this primary. And then that slowly started That's that's slowly. Went away as more questions about her health. Care plan started. Cropping up she eventually put out a Medicare her own version of Medicare for all And you know wasn't really able to sell that both to moderate voters and progressive voters which she said today in her press conference was interesting. She said that when she started out she was told that there were two lanes in the Democratic primary the the Progressive Lane and the The moderate lane and Joe Biden would be the front runner in the moderate Lane and Bernie Sanders was in coming on the Progressive Lane. She was told she said that there was no other path. And she said she Set at the time that she didn't believe that that she thought that she could change things and she said today that that she was wrong It seems based on the way that this primary has played out who among those remaining candidates Former Vice President Biden or Vermont Senator Sanders Might Benefit from Warren's exit. So we'll have to see you know if she decides to endorse. She said today that she's going to take some time to think. And figure things out you know a lot of her supporters. Are you know more progressive? And if you in that sense they could be. You know they could move to Bernie Sanders but she also does have a lot of college educated women who aren't necessarily you know the Bernie Sanders Type of voter so she could. You know some Some of her supporters could also back Joe Biden Tarini. Warren's departure leaves two white men in their seventies competing to run against president trump another white man in his seventies. What are we to make of the fact that this was historically diverse. Field has whittled down to this. It was historically diverse. We had six women. If you know if you're including Tulsi Gabbard and Marianne Williamson. We had six women running Tulsi Gabbard is obviously still in the race but has not gained any traction she elizabeth. Warren was the you know the the last top tier woman still running. She sort of addressed that in her in her press conference one of the hardest parts of this is all those all those little girls. We're going to have to wait four more years. That's going to be hard. What affected Warren. Have on the two thousand presidential campaign and we'll see continue to influence it going forward. I think she will continue to have Influence and be a big voice especially if she decides to endorse either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Going forward how they bring up some of her policy ideas and whether they choose to incorporate those in their own campaign that will be interesting to
Doncic’s 30-Point Triple-Double, Porzingis Lead Mavericks Past Pelicans In OT
"So now we look forward to the Dallas Mavericks who just had a pretty big game. They're in seventh place right now. Six would ideal like we talked about last podcast there in six place and the rest of the standings ended up as they are as of now they'd be up against the Denver Nuggets. Which in my opinion would be the easiest matchup for any team really in this western conference standings not to give any disrespect Denver Nuggets or what they've done all season their forty one and twenty. They're great team. But when you look at the Los Angeles Lakers the clippers even the rockets. Those teams just seem a little bit more intimidating so the Mavericks WanNa get higher up in the standings so that they can potentially dodge playing the Lakers or the Clippers. And so they're only half game back from doing this the To eclipsing the Oklahoma City thunder in the standings and so just few days after Lucas. Twenty first birthday he would be going up against Zion Williamson for the first time. And the Pelicans the Pelicans at this point are on a two-game Skid and Zion was playing his first ever back to back so this was a big deal because obviously when he first came back they were totally babying him and having him on minutes restriction not making play back to back and now he's filing gotten that level where he feels pretty comfortable. He's been in pretty good shape and so this is the first game back. It's good test for him to see where he's at physically the PELICANS would also be without. Jj riddick he'll probably offer a couple of weeks with an injury which is really unfortunate for them as they're trying to make this push to get into that last playoff spot so unfortunate for them but in this game it was so close and so back and forth there were thirteen lead changes in this one and eighteen times where the game was tied. The Mavericks would be the ones ahead at the end of the first quarter. Twenty four twenty two. They then had their lead extended out to eleven before the Pelicans brought close again and again and the Mavericks would have the halftime lead up by just two points at halftime. The Mavericks had eleven blocks so welcome to the block party. Three of them being against Zion. So crazy stat for the for the Dallas Mavericks but nothing would still separate these two teams in the third each team scoring thirty points each meaning. The Mavericks would still have a two point lead. The fourth quarter was much of the same very competitive very back and forth and for the majority of the fourth. The Mavericks would have the lead and any time that the Pelicans come close or even tie it as they did a few times in this one they would just push back out but with two and a half to go Ingram. Hit a big three to take the lead finally for the. Pelicans one zero seven one zero six he would then extend it out with a tough fadeaway so pelicans would go up by three then with the mavericks down by one with thirty six seconds ago. It was currie not steph curry his brother. Seth Curry who would regain the lead on a huge three in the corner? And so now the Pelicans down one twelve one nine and seven seconds left Nikola Meli who had missed his last six three pointers. Got The inbounds. Pass put it up and knocked it down to tie the game and send it into overtime with porzingas missing a fadeaway game winner. So what kind of confidence do you have to have when you've missed six three pointers in a row? But the US do they draw up. They didn't drop the play for me to take this three. There's no way he was just the open guy. They gave it to him and he shot it with confidence which is something you should give them a pat on the back door because if I've missed six threes in a row I'm not taking another one for the rest of the game. I wouldn't have missed six zero because I wouldn't have taken that many but could also him for you know lock in and putting it down so great clutch bus bucket there for the Pelicans to try and take this one and not with the game tied at one eighteen in overtime with one eleven to go. It's a Luca. Danni H who hits a step back three Super Clutch? Take the lead late. In the game and later he would then split defenders with a pass and find Porzingis who goes and spikes it down extending their lead to one twenty. Three one. Nineteen effectively icing. This game the Mavericks would win this game. One Twenty seven one twenty three and this game could honestly not have been any tighter. It was close the entire game. Both both teams kind of pushing out for some leads but then again at the end of each quarter they would just come back to two point deficits and then tied obviously to go to overtime so and crazy game where stupor back and forth very competitive and it was just a great game to watch the Mavericks into this game. We're just five and fifteen in games decided by five points or less so they're not necessarily clutch when it comes down to the wire they seem to always drop games but for whatever reason in this one they came out on top and we're able to hold on for a big reason. Why are there two budding? Stars and Luca Danni Jake and Kris Porzingis.

"williamson" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"And welcome to this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why I'm Chris where we're joined by Greg. Crone Gregory Houria. Another beautiful weird snowy snowy night over here in beautiful Pennsylvania Chris Beautiful Pennsylvania. Yes so you guys get to now. All of a sudden as as I was driving home I noticed a small amount of flurries and then as the next hour to win along some winter squalls Chris and Snow Squalls Elsa coding my driveway currently. But I don't think it's supposed to do or last much longer. Driveway Lottie DA. I know right Mr Mr Rockefeller No let's that's exciting. I think you know I've said this innumerable times but I miss snow in theory in theory in theory. Keyword there all right well this week thought about why the Pelicans are GonNa Richard Zion Williamson the season while the bills are going to beat the Patriots this weekend and why Madison Bumgarner is the best value so far and free agency. Let's start off with the New Orleans Talibans and and one Zion Williamson Zion Williamson the number one selection in the nineteen NBA draft. And I I were. He gets hurt after a pretty impressive summer league I would say and all of a sudden. There's a six to eight weeks time line and at this time on just keeps getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and we're now past eight weeks. Zaylon is still not cleared to actually take part in five one five staff or do any any significant court trills. Greg this is this is a story. I've seen play out before we've seen. Oh He's is going to be ready in a couple of weeks. Don't worry about it when our teams tanking and that just never comes. I will say I check this out and I was surprised to see over at Bethesda sportsbook. They're actually plus twenty five hundred not amongst the twenty five thousand skews me not even the worst teams is in the NBA but there is just not a chance in the world. The PELICANS are going to Risk Zion's long-term future or quite frankly their draft pick and twenty twenty by playing this guy this year. Well I mean the question. The PELICANS have to face. Is You know especially with the guys they got in that in that Lakers the deal that sent Anthony Davis over how Zion's going to Gel with some of these guys and and I think that you know obviously you don't WanNa push him back from an injury early but I could definitely Italy see a post all-star break bringing this guy back and just letting him get used to the game. We saw firsthand me and you a sixers fan saw this play Out Year after year after year and it took such a weird adjustment period for some of these guys that set out like Ben Simmons like Joel Embiid. I took a little bit longer for them to kind of get their feet under them at the NBA level now. Obviously Zion is an unbelievably athletic kid and a lot of explosiveness. This is part of his game and I think that that's something the pelicans definitely have to monitor coming back from something like this and you don't want to exacerbate exacerbate an injury and obviously their seasons essentially over I mean there what sixteen games under five hundred already to start the season. They've lost a ton of games in a row. I think it's double digits at this point. It's you know the the hunt for the playoffs is obviously over but with the way the NBA draft is waded. Now tanking doesn't work as much so getting this guy even a little bit of run not only for the team but also for the fan base. I mean this is a guy. This is the Mo what. Let's let's be honest. This is probably the most hyped number one overall pick since Lebron. If we're going to be we're going to be perfectly honest here Just from the amount of media coverage the amount of focus he went to Duke. There's just so much focus on this guy to to not to not put him out there for a couple of games just to get his feet wet at the NBA level. I think is unfair. I don't think the Pelicans give a damn about getting him. acclimated playing with Josh Heart and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram and Jackson Hayes and derrick favors. Whoever it is they want to put out there? You'll notice that I didn't mention drew holiday or JJ rennick because if you're if you're listening to the scuttle bought of late it seems like both of them could potentially be on the block. Why did you leave us? Jj why did you do it only to get traded and take your power out of your own hands. They're concerned about Zion long-term and you talk about the weighted it'd lottery system There's just -cation to that I get where you're coming from but the point is it's still better to have a better chance. You know if I I understand. It's not as drastic a difference. It has been in the past with more flat and lottery odds but worse team still have a better chance. And that's all you can really ask for. You know. There was never a scenario where that number one team was. Actually even the favorite to get the number one pick. The field was always the favourite because that that odds were what twenty five percent twenty six percent back in a pre weighted lottery. You know there. There was never any guarantees. And we've seen plenty of teams tank only to get the second pick in the draft third. Pick in the draft now God could be fifth. Pick in the draft if you're if you're New York Knicks Fan with RJ Barrett. Going four last year that he was hardcore. Tanking this is I on. This is all about Zion. This is about his future and who you're going to pair them with if you can add the James Wise Men are and Anthony Edwards or something along those lines. I I don't know how much percents Lamelo ball would make as he would potentially be taking a spot from his older brother but added Edwards or a Weisman. Come back next year and see what you got. But you're not risk nothing. I mean the problem is we've gone back and forth about market size and things like that with the Pelicans specifically is you. You're the risk of losing fan interest because of something like this though. It's not like the city of Philadelphia where you have you know a much. Larger pool pulled draw from a long rich tradition of basketball. You know going way back to the early fifties you're talking about you're talking about a Pelicans franchise that is relatively brand new in the in the you know the grand scheme of the NBA and to not have a guy like this out there to not not give him to not give the fans at least an opportunity to see him is is a really really difficult decision for me to watch them make. I mean it's not like like they're dropping ticket prices because he's not out there. You know what I mean. Those season tickets that skyrocketed remember all the stories in the videos of the ticket. Team going crazy when when they landed the number one pick those ticket. Prices are staying the same in you risk a lot when it comes to renewals and things like that from from a business standpoint by not having the sky play. I understand that the season's essentially over but how many games his rookie Zion Williamson really going to win this team. This team has contracts as constructed. It is not very good. They have pieces they definitely do. I mean drew's obviously a perennial. All Star at this. Point is one of the best young point guard gets. He's not young anymore. It's twenty nine. But he still a very very very good player in this league. And you outside of that I mean you do like you said you you have. Jj whatever derrick favors again. Nothing Great Brandon. Ingram is easily the best player on the team currently I mean the questions going to become as what do fans have to watch. What this team? If it's not Si- On pill you get Zion over the next. At least four. Three seasons you get a healthy sign you talk about fan interest waning and you know temporarily that may be the case but who cares hairs because the very second that guy steps onto the court it all goes away and that's all anybody who's GonNa WanNa talk about again and this team is going to be a lot more interesting thing if Anthony Edwards playing playing shooting guard instead of Josh Heart or JJ radic or somebody like that and then you genuinely have that young core for you know. A wise men might be weird fit just because they draft Jackson. Hey so high last year but a guy like Edwards gives you a potentially you. It's really interesting. Young trio of of Edwards Zaylon and Brandon Ingram. And then. Then you're onto something then you're not just a team that's interesting to watch because it was I on your team that potentially if everyone matures correctly becomes the team to reckon within the NBA. And what why would you risk you. We I think the only way the fan interest goes away is if you put this guy back on the court. He's exciting for game and a half then he lands wrong. Re Fractures chooses foot. And we're back to square one. That's how you lose fan excitement. Sure but what are the question becomes as he's two hundred eighty five pounds. I think the odds yet. But it's not GonNa Change. It's GonNa Change from this year to next year. It's not like all of a sudden ions going to become a felt to forty like if anything he's GonNa continue to grow into his body and potentially get bigger. I mean we're talking about a twenty year old kid right here. I mean you watch guys transform as they enter into the NBA. A and what their bodies become. Let's talk about a guy like Joel embiid. For example you know they come into the league. They add that wait they get bigger. I don't see Zion on shrinking anytime soon. So you're talking about worrying about something that can happen at any point. It's this is the same reason why I disagreed. Continuously with the sixers and what they did did with managing the injuries of Ben Simmons and managing the injuries of Jalil Okeafor nerlens. Noel and I guess Jalil wasn't injured but nerlens was an and even Joel embiid like we did this thing where we baby them and did for what exactly. Well I would argue. NCUA the Ben Simmons thing and I will believe this to my. My last breath was not the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers decision but rather the decision of his management management and Ben Simmons because I think they care about marketing and they wanted him to be able to be rookie of the year out. It's also because he didn't shoot three pointers and he doesn't shoot and he's not a shooter in what are you talking. What are you talking about? He's I think he's too for three but either way. Well he's I think he's actually two for five on real threes real threes real threes. I just wish he's the best shooter. Benson's will not have perfectly fine. You're incorrect but I mean let's think about the teams in New Orleans around. I mean they're in the much tougher western conference. I don't think Zion brings them anywhere near getting outside of that bottom autumn five or bottom six you know world in when it comes to the draft lottery. I just don't the team's not good enough to go in night in night out and beat teams. They're not going to be better. They're just they're just not. It's just it's not going to hurt their draft stock as much and getting this guy out there and letting their fans and see what the future holds. I think carries more weight I don't agree with that. I think this is you tank and you worry about it next this year. Are you at all surprised you. I mentioned the the Plus Twenty five thousand Pravada but are you at all surprised to learn that to win the championship. That plus plus twenty five thousand goes for both the PELICANS and the Memphis. Oh sorry the Memphis..

"Just like if our worker right now right now wit to Oklahoma City and he averaged fourteen point pointed eight board people say Al Horford Sucks Al Horford is going to build seventy sixers and they're probably GonNa go to the finals and they're going to. They're going to be singing thing in his praises with his fourteen eight still the thing the thing you're not understanding it all of this though is that and I think this stems back from our conversation we had in the past pass so I bring it up now. The expectation of Zayn Williamson as the number one pick as the greatest thing since the Braun prospect wise is that he has to be a superstar right and the all the things that you're sort of describing him as our like. He can't be draymond green if he's Draymond Green. That's a disappointment because that's how high that's how how high the expectations offer offer this. Guy Zion hoover fans birth bring every waiter where's who the talent evaluators in the NBA all who think that this guy is the next big thing yes if he if he comes back if he comes out of his career rear is Draymond Green. It's going to be a disappointment like that unfortunately because he's he's supposed to be a is draymond green atop a top ten player in the NBA. You know he is judo but you know he's basketball. You know that right. I might not be I want. I want him on on every single one of my teams. I want him on on every single one of my teams. He is an absolute winning basketball player. I love him. I absolutely love him. Draymond green is a great number three he throughout the entire situation with the warriors. It's been Steph one clay too and then obviously they add K. D. He's always been one of the best supporting guys in the league a million different things he's he's A. He's a pocket knife. He's a jack-of-all-trades but Zion Williamson the expectations preside Williamson are NBP's and superstardom and that's not draymond green. It's that's not true. That's not true. Nobody knows who's going to be an MVP. No one knows it's going to be on Mount Rushmore going into their first season reason. No one thinks it's like who I loved to hear someone with any type of credibility had said Zion. Williams is going to be a top five player aw time nine thirty. You Got Refund. You got an hour and a half show I want you to I want you to tell me where someone's like my expectations on him for him to be Mount Rushmore. No one says that Lebron Lebron's expectations were for him to be Mount Rushmore going into his first season. No we're not that man was his. His nickname was chosen one he. He's the keys King James he was. He was literally the Chosen One. He tattooed on his okay so now according to Cerruti. We're going to go with what guys aside the Tattoo on their bodies. We're GONNA leap. We can live a dose expert. I cannot wait. I also things that people tattoo on their bodies now. Now we're GONNA hold only look Ron accountable to the tattoos on his body. Come on listen we're going to we're going to have ric Bucher on later and about a half an hour from now. I can't wait to ask Rick about this because I have a feeling. He's is on my side now one second you have to ask him if Zion Williamson has a career like draymond green. Is that a disappointment appointment. I WANNA hear him.

She's never held any political office but she certainly a public figure and like our current. President is an she's been a bestselling author for decades. Her books on self help topics include a woman's worth and healing the soul of america. She's a close friend of oprah's and she frames critique of donald trump not in political terms not in policy terms but in spiritual terms this nana's dan has reached into the psyche of the american people and he's harnessed fear for political purposes so mr president if you're listening. I want you to hear me please you you have harnessed fear for political purposes and only love can cast that up so i saw her. I have a feeling you know what you're doing. I'm going to harness love for political purposes offices. I will meet you on that field and sir level when she impressed some viewers with her convictions however unorthodox and after the first july july debate marianne williamson was the most googled candidate. I spoke with her about her campaign for the democratic nomination early last week. I think the fairest question to ask you is very simple. Why are you running for president. Donald trump being president has changed the world and it's changed the world not only globally in terms of geopolitics but i think personally for many people <hes>. I'm one of millions of people. I'm sure this is true of you. Probably everyone listening to this program to some extent. Nothing is the same in terms of where we see ourselves in relationship to the rest of our lives to our country to the rest of the world and i think think that there's a deep question. We're all asking whether it's inchoate or whether very clear unconscious which is how can i possibly help and i think think we all feel most of us called on some level to use whatever skills we have to try to make like a difference at a time such as this so i challenged the idea that only the people whose careers have been entrenched for years in the limitations of the mindset that drove us into this ditch. H are qualified to lay out of this ditch. I think this is one of these those times in american history that require what is spiritual leader above all well let can we talk talk about the narrative of american history slavery did not end because the political status quo of the time decided to end slavery it ended because with the abolitionist ernest movement that was in fact begun by the early evangelicals and quakers so yes it came from a religious and spiritual foundation people rose up the people stepped in and with civil rights. The political establishment of the time did not wake up and say let's desegregate the south. A baptist preacher named dr martin arthur king and the civil rights movement. The southern christian leadership conference rose up the people stepped in so in fact with every major course correction in terms of social justice than the united it states it has in fact been an intervention by the people themselves and to be honest with you david. Yes it has been centered. Religious spirit absolutely william lloyd garrison plated enormous miss rowe. Martin luther king played an enormous role. Are you putting yourself at that level as a spiritual and inspirational leader absolutely not i did not say that at all all i have been working for thirty five years up close and personal with people whose lives are in crisis and that's one of the things that gives me the inside i have because i've seen what bad public policy does to people's lives. It's what gives me such a passion about changing that bad public policy. I'd been working for years with people who live daily l. e. the economic tension and anxiety created by this oligarch system. The first thing we have to do is to return to principal. This is how you change a <hes> life. This is how you change your country because all the country is is a group of individuals so you have to ask yourself. Where am i and where am i not the person i say i am. <hes> are are the people of the united states need to emotionally and psychologically rebound with the principles of the declaration of independence and those principles are written on marble walls written on parchment but principles dive not alive in us. I'm curious about your tactical emphasis or or your were your genuine emphasis on harnessing emotions. Why do you see that as crucial to beating trump what has happened in this country and what this happened. In many places in this world is that the worst aspects of human character had been harnessed for political purposes racism bigotry anti-semitism <hes> homophobia xenophobia islamaphobia sarah. No intelligent observer thought that these things didn't exist exists in the united states but we thought we had reached a point. We thought we have reached consensus. Several decades ago where there were lines pest which we would not go on either are left or right that no political major political entity would give a megaphone to any of these voices. Those levees have have fallen now. The problem is not that they're more haters than decent loving good people. That's not the problem. The problem is that the haters in this country have become collectivized for political purposes. There are a lot of wonderful decent loving really good people out there. We harness all that and change the world. When you become president you enter a world of mitch mcconnell u._n. To a world of <hes> a senate that is very unlikely to be <hes> majority democratic you enter. You're a world of all kinds of political realities in obstructions <hes> and difficulties what would happen on january twentieth. When you you become president united states what would in marion williamson administration look like there are four pillars to the moral politics that i believe that we need aid in this country at this point first of all it has to do with a moral economy trickle down. Economics is an amoral system that has led to immoral consequences so my sense of what needs to change economically holding capitalism accountable. I consider myself a capitalist but i think we need capitalism with a conscience and ours is meaning terms of policy but we need to repeal the two thousand seventeen tax cut put back in the middle class tax cut. Stop the corporate subsidies. Why do we pay twenty six billion dollars in in subsidies to the fossil fuel companies loan. The government needs to take back its own negotiating power with big pharmaceutical companies. We need to look how much of our military budget is actually money that the military said that they need to provide for legitimate security concerns and how much above that is money that has to do with short expenditures terzic mainly have to do with short-term profit maximization for defense contractors and i agree with elizabeth we knew that three percent tax on the assets of billionaires and two percent tax on the assets the fifty million and more these kinds of changes on a pure policy level that will begin to transition back to a functioning democracy and not just a function in corpus crecy or oligarchy what would in williamson administration look like who would you bring to the fore and a cabinet in your presidency so first of all all the people in my cabinet. I've been it would have to have a lot of experience in in government but they would also have the consciousness that i wish to bring so my attorney general for instance would have to be someone exquisitely aware and alert to the racial disparities in our criminal sentencing in in policing and so forth and i would also what my attorney general to be someone who is it's very aware of white collar crime and also very alert to the issues of voter suppression so really strong kick ass progressive attorney general yeah kick ass happening now in terms of state well pretty funny about secretary of state because my idea of secretary of state the my fantasy secretary secretary of state is outside the box but i thought wow this person would be perfect and then i recently read that person say in the new york times about my appearance in one of the debates. He said that woman shouldn't even and beyond the stage who resigned. I thought nicholas kristof would be the best secretary of state that he series secretary of the times columnist yeah and because his geopolitical understanding the handing of what is going on in this world is so to me he would be and then what you get under him are the lieutenants right but then i read that he can't stand me so i know well. Oh you probably wouldn't want to work for me. Have you met donald trump now. I saw him once i i'm. I was at mar a lago for a party when he was married to marla trump yep maple's right now. How long ago was that. It was a fundraiser for an aid organization. I had found it so it would probably have been in in the ninety s and back then. Was you think of him. I've thought about him what i think. A lot of people did he was like this vulgar american character. I i didn't hate him. I thought he was you know. My mother would have had a word for him. <hes> yiddish word we allow it is a word but i wouldn't have you know at that time and this is something that i find very mysterious. Actually if you look at interviews with him from the eighties he was really different. He even look different which makes me think i gives me my own theories about what's involved in all this. Which is when you see. Some it features on someone's face turns out much. I'll leave it at that but he even when he just aging. What are we talking about. Do your research david but he would wear it. What does that mean. I'm not i don't wanna i don't wanna go into that. It's just that i think that there are a lot of people who have who finds a lot very curious about the president but i don't want to go into any of that but i will say this when he talked about politics so but you're running on a on a on a an admirably probably a policy of being straightforward about what you mean. I'm not running on a on a campaign of personal demonization a per per a personal attack. I can keep it to my conversations about the president's announce policies and that's all i want to do and that's all i would want to do if i if it doesn't matter character absolutely does matter but we were. We were getting into areas here that went beyond character and i don't. I need to tell the american people the president's character because the president's character is very obvious for all to see now. I i know this has come up and i know it's controversial. You and i know there have been different statements on us. I wanna get you on the record and as a parent of someone with a severely autistic child <hes> i wanna get straight what you think think about vaccinations. I'm just not quite clear on whether you're an anti vaccine her i am not or you're somewhere in the middle or you think. Vaccinations explanations are right and necessary as i do. A vaccinations have looked at smallpox look at polio. Where would we be without a vaccination saxon. Save lives and anytime that there is a medical intervention. There's benefit and there's also risk and the government absolutely must come down on the side of of the public good. I made an admittedly sloppy comment about the removal of exempt. Shell us what the comment was and how you would correct. I said that they were draconian. I said that they were or well. I said well that sounds. It's kind of orwellian in coney to me to remove all the exemptions and how would you say it now. I would not say that it was a sloppy comment that a presidential candidate should not have said career enough and so in other words what you're saying is to save for example the parents the many many parents in fact in in the los angeles area who are <hes> look trying to get out of vaccines that have to measles. They're wrong the issue of a lot of those people that i've heard i've heard legitimate questions of people wanting to know. Why can't the measles vaccine vaccine be a separate vaccine. I don't find people who ask those questions to be a bunch of crazy out there boxers. I think that everybody is just concerned about the health of our children well. That's fair enough but sometimes even the most earnest and right minded people are just scientifically wrong indeed and the government has to make the decision that based on its evaluation scientific evaluation is in the best interest of the public and that's what i would do as president. You've been running for president now for a bit and i wonder what you've learned from it. You've gotten you've had some good moments. Particularly the second debate you you got god knows twitter rushton behind. You and you got an enormous amount of n. Google is well what we've gotten and then you've got some coverage that portray you as a kind of crystal-gazing kook..

"Williamson and wonderful to hear all my fellow candidates who are here this afternoon and I have agreed with more of them and more of the things that they said that I disagreed with but I also think we need to pay some facts we've been saying these things and we lost last time we've been saying many of these things we've been promoting the same because the political values and we've been losing congressional seats too often we've been losing senatorial seats too often and so I want to talk to you about the kind of transformation we need in this country it will only happen if we have a transformation in our politics and it will only happen if we as Democrats embraced a more transformational vision ladies and gentlemen I read an interview with Jared Kushner and your question is said that he had been in a McDonald's with his father in law and he told his father in law there's so many angry people out there he said we could harness all that anger and we could make you president and I thought to myself when I read that there's so many good people out there so many decent people out there there's so many loving people out there we go to harness all that and change the world good people loving people but the American people's goodness and love has not been channeled through American politics in a way that it should be and for a long time and the only way we're going to do that ladies and gentleman is if we get really more a more deep and way more real because love tells truth we have an enemy here there's more than one political candidates we have collectivized fear hatred bigotry racism Islamophobia anti semitism they're a lot more people in this country who love them to hate those who hate you with seriousness and I are politicized we need to take a love the only way you're going to be a lot of his with some big truth the Democratic Party is only going to win this election and the Democratic Party if we start telling some big too often we have not.

"Nyein Williamson pretty much a guaranteed the number one, pick in tonight's draft. If wants to keep his job, and not head back to NBA, TV, Shannon. When you look at this young man's future, do you see him becoming a superstar astore or just a starter say, as I am with a little bit book, Pippi Lou mobile about this ill day? Skip. I know you're going to be upset, but I'm sorry. I see him as a star. Like in the middle somewhere. Yes, I think you'll be a good player skip. He's getting. Vince I followed the NBA, and I go back to magic magic rookie year coming forward that's been forty years skill. Only two people have gone, this kind of attention that I can recall Magic Johnson. Lebron James and Zion Williamson. Skip, I do not see him as those guys do I think he can be good. Yes. But I don't see that. I'm sorry. The outside shot is a set shot. It works if he's wide open. I mean everybody keeps telling me that Ben Simmons is going to develop a shot. I haven't seen it yet. Microcosm away was supposed to develop one of those Michael Kim grill, Kurds. Now I'm not saying they're talented Zion, but developing shot is not as easily. Oh, just develop that that was the case he to build he'd be you pull owns. But that's not what he is. So just keep the paint. I just don't see superstars give do I believe he could be an all star. Yeah. He could be an all stock. But that saying much rookie. I don't know if you'll be an all star his rookie year. I went back and checked it out. Since two thousand they've only been two guys to make the all star team rookies Blake Griffin was not one of Blake Griffin but that's an assery because he was drafted in no nine he didn't play any made it in twenty ten in y'all mean. Okay. In one country, they have a quarter of the population of the world. Let's just say they may have stuff the about. I'm not saying that's what happened. There's a possibility. So for me skip, yes. He's gonna have some highlight reel, dunks. He'll probably block a shot like LeBron data in game seven of the NBA finals. He would do things that will grab your attention, but to be when I'm thinking with the high this kid has, yeah. He's gotta be Magic Johnson. He has to be LeBron James because that's the caliber attention to kinda height is surrounding him. Yet you can't compare into magic as a basketball player and you certainly can't compare him to LeBron as a basketball player. His skill set. Which is why I can't compare him to anybody. I have been covering this game as you know, since the mid nineteen seventies. When I covered the Lakers pre Magic Johnson..

This week will be discussing the dramatic sacking of Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson the first Cowdery booted out for leaking in living memory, plus James blitz will be discussing the local elections, oats. I wanna tells us about the state of the political nation. I'm delighted to be joined by off. It's got it to George Pokka defense security edited David bond columnist Robert shrimps, the deputy pantomine degreen political cost lower Hughes, and we apologize in advance for slightly crackly podcast this week the T in its final few weeks at a home on. So the bridge soon to move to a shiny, new building black and house. So if you can bear with us with the order quality will be back to normal soon. Thank you for joining. And if you find chef liking this episode after politics, then subscribe or leaves a postive view and will be very grateful on Wednesday. Good evening and Email dropped into the inbox of Westminster's journalists. It was a curt letter from Theresa May to govern Williamson and nounce that he has been some rarely sacked from the cabinet following an inquiry into the unprecedented leak from the national Security Council. The prime minister had lost trust and faith in the Defense Secretary. But he has refused to go quietly. Mr. Williamson has sworn on the lives of his children that he was not responsible for the leak about Hawaii's involvement in the UK five G network. But will we find out whether he was responsible so David bond, we were sitting here last week talking about this leaking quasi on weather, and who might be responsible. And we never thought that we would get to the bottom of it. Because these leaking quite happen. All the time in why toll under snow me too, many people with access to the privileged information to point of finger to SEIs ity to say this person was to blame. But clearly in this situation to ISA may has come to the conclusion that was no. No other viable explanation. It had to miss the Williamson. And even if he denies it. She lost faith, and that was it. Yes. Absolutely. And while lots of people at the time of the leak would pointing the finger at Gavin Williamson in a sense, he wasn't a surprise to emerges the potential coporate here with that. Of course, he does deny it. I think it tells you just how seriously it was being treated inside number ten and by the cabinet secretary Simone said will. And I think there's a reason why it was being treated so seriously and nice because it was a leak from the national Security Council. You know, we've used to leaks of cabinet many times over the years, but this felt like a different level of seriousness around that. So some said we're really wanted to make sure that he investigated thoroughly in someone pay the price. So love shames d we know that to east main met with Mr. Williamson at five PM yesterday. And she put forward this evidence to him and the key bit. The Abbas has pointed the finger towards Mr. Williamson's eleven minute phone call between him and the journalist on the daily. Allographs who wrote the story, and Mr. Williamson has said that phone call was about other matters. We can speculate what might be. But really nobody knows a puff from him and the journalist, and he is completely denied that was what was discussed on that phone. Call after half an hour of backwards and forwards with the PM, essentially, she said that he hadn't engaged with the Enquirer. There was no explanation must have been ham..

"We living in an it's flown their moment and the American people are not stupid. We're not children where dolts, but we're treated by the political system like children talked to children, and I think that this campaign is an adult campaign, and I'm submitting to the American people a campaign based not just on what I can do for you. But also what together we can do for our country and what we can do for the world. And I think these are Sooners times, and it to Mansi attention of serious people and everybody has it within us to be serious. Sarah for the left and Beth from the right? You're listening to sue politics. They're shouting. No insults. Plenty of months. So cited today to share with you our conversation with democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson before we do couple of announcements we're going to be discussing our book, I think you're wrong. But I'm listening guide to grace filled political conversation at Florence Christian church. My home church on April twenty seventh. It would warm my heart to see many of you there with the link about that in the show notes. Also our interview with Angie, Brown Elkin. At Chad allergy is up. She was a little trepidation about talking politics on our podcast. So actually, I feel like her trepidation led to a really good conversation. So check that I think so too. And we know that everyone is thinking about the mullet report today, I am live tweeting. My read of the Miller report that is the thing we hear at Panzi politics are committed to reading the thing ourselves before we talk about it, and it's four hundred pages long. So we're going to get on that. And we'll be back here Tuesday discussing it in full. And if you would like some on the spot analysis, you can go to patriot and become a supporter tha that receives the nightly nuance, and you can follow my little Twitter thread. So we want to warn you before we head into this conversation with Marianne Williamson that we had a pretty intense discussion of addiction that encompassed suicide and just want to let you know that that's coming. So if you don't wanna hear that part of the conversation when I asked her about addiction, he might just skip ahead a little bit. But I think it's important. And I think it's indicative of how she thinks and approaches things I will just read to you for Marion's bio, if you don't know her work, I'm really sorry. But you don't it's amazing. But I'm glad you're being introduced to her today, and she says about herself spiritual audiences haven't always been happy with my political activism and political audiences haven't always been happy with my spiritual convictions. But the combination of the two is who I am my career has not been a traditional. One, but it has been successful. I have been teacher of transformational wisdom a successful businesswoman. And political activist. I have counseled leaders ranging from business to culture to politics. I have been blessed to participate in many non-profit activities and speaking for various charitable causes over the years in two thousand fourteen I ran for congress in Los Angeles came in fourth out of field of sixteen and a jungle primary LA district thirty three ended up with the venerable blue in that position. So I consider it an all's well that ends well experience in my life and that generosity of spirit. You'll hear in this conversation Marianne has published twelve books and her newest book politics of love will be out soon. Without further ado, we are just alighted to share Marianne Williamson with you. We are so thrilled to be joined by Marianne Williamson bestselling author leader someone we both have listened to and just been guided by. In our lives for so long. And we are so excited to have you here today as a presidential candidate. I would say that as someone who's a longtime like I said follower of yours and of your work. I have to tell you that, you know, you have one of the the more unique biographies, I think of a very crowded presidential field.

"City bet. Eight. Let's do it man. I'm just Williamson. This is white. Bird. Today's guest them sessions at Madeira house is the very charming techs musician. Jess Williamson. She released a new album this year, her first on excellent label Mexican summer. It's called cosmic wink. And she recorded at during a state of flux while she was moving from Texas to l. a. I should tell us right after this. Kinky. She king. So do I. Jeez. Oh. This is no Massoudi. Clipped we. Jeez. Scene. This is no city. Eighteen. Mr. Soon. just Williamson welcomes the sessions at majoria Sankey things are all pleasure. Now you rate your album, cosmic, wink, and a transitional phase jury your life. Maybe explain to us a bit about the circumstances this was written in. Yeah, so I am. I was going through a lot of changes and moved away from Texas. I moved to Los Angeles. I also fell in love in a really big way in a way that felt pretty life changing. Those were the two major things that were happening on first Rainer at the album. And then also right before we started recording my dog died my beloved animal companion Frankie. And so it was this really interesting thing because I. As Ryan the album and I'm falling in love so deeply and living in this new environment are seeing that she was fading, you know, and so are starting to think a lot about the passage of time and even just her face, like the graying of the for her is was reflecting back to me in this really tangible way the passing of time and something about being in love and this huge way and thinking a lot about time influenced ause on the Elbe. I'm kind of posse of time thing is something that you find quite intimidating, or is it something that Spurs you on to carry on making music d thing? Both. Yeah. Yeah. I often think about how we have such little time in our lives. So you make a count and work really hard and go for the things you really want for sure. But like, you know, there's. Like a song on the album. That's a little bit. I see the white as the song. It's like a little bit throwing a tantrum about time. You know, like being mad that there's not enough time. There's a few songs that deal with that on the room. Yeah, I engage with this in a number of ways from being like a childish angry kid about it to letting it be a motivation and an inspiration runs the gamut. And this whole kind of writing in a state of flux when things are changing in your life, do you find an easier point to write music from? I mean, music kind of ground you again, when you're in between times perhaps I've found that it's the songs come from different places. Like I long as I've been writing songs started out that I only write songs if I was really sad in heartbroken, not find inspiration from that, and it was this release. But then with this last album, I found that I was really happy for the most part and feeling a lot of love. And so I, I wasn't a transitional place being new town in. So I treated writing music like my day job, and I just woke up every morning and started writing no matter what you divide in having spray Shen treated at like a real practice. It became a practice is the first time my life had been able to do that proper nine to five. Yes, yes, because I was nude. Away at a lot of people yet. I didn't have like normal job at the time. You know, I've been saving to make that possible and it was yes, we're somewhere I, I really was able to live like an artist and this way always wanted and treat it like my job. Yeah, this one's called awakening baby. Today.
