Fresh update on "wiseman" discussed on Papa and Lund
"A little baseball yesterday in about 109? Kids? Just don't 17 year old. Just don't get affected. I'm out there at melting like ice cream, And he's just like that's no big deal that But so I did that for a while. Put the zinc oxide on dipped into pool Feel wonderful, But, yeah, Like I said, you get in your car, my readings a little bit high. I think it's not exactly accurate, but it's like 109. I was like, Are you kidding me? It was ridiculous, but it's right. You know. So how is your wife Faces skin right now? Are you rock? Uh, make it a little bit of Yeah, I got some spots that I missed Clearly because with me very pasty, and, uh, yeah, I missed a couple of spots clear. You know what you always misses like. The neck area. The back of the next are just hanging out the back of the neck. Yeah, Deep bird. Yeah, the back of the neck. I don't know why, because you need somebody when he went to George's game, you know you could have gone to the home plate umpire said. Hey, my son's in center field today. Anything close? Give me a break. Can you rub this on my back, sir? Nobody likes to rub me. I just I don't understand why it's grotesques. They don't thank you very much. How do you get to your own back? That's the problem. I but the upper neck region you can get to if you know, right? Yeah. And you got to do the was just the dope by this didn't do it. By the way, shout out to the umpire. Yesterday, he went full gear wearing the black gear in the 1, 11 and every single break. His wife sat in a chair in the shade, and she would, uh, take like a cold talent that she kept in a cooler and she would put it on his neck. She should give him ice water. But now that's a couple of cares about each other. She came to the game saying that he wasn't there doing the same for you when you were you trying to get me in trouble. Okay. I was by myself. Why didn't you ask the arms wife to do that? For shit of anybody having fist? Yeah, he said is that is that Jack London have allowed my all time radio with, uh, pay pay. Uh, A Is he moving into my wife on there? That's love right there, Right. There's a foot outside blue. You know what? I gave him a total break. And I told George Do I said no Yang at the up. It's 1 10 out today he's in full gear. I would have never done that. I have been in shorts, definitely topless. Maybe banana hapless some point. Hey, man, it was hot. But, yeah, he would. Fulgear, the black pants, the big guard, the the full Buster helmet and every inning he'd go over to over to his wife and she would she would take care of him. It was amazing. Yeah, they're in love, John. Oh, they are. That's love. Right there. Your umpiring she comes along. We should take care of the other, Um, players as well. No, I meant uh, with with No, she it was just it was just the man behind the plate. Just the man behind the plate. So that was in the camp IRS When they're at home, they're you know, they clean up They have the whisper room in the back pocket today. You think they're neat freaks? Yes. Do they do the Yes. They obviously bring out the whispering because they're good at that. But do they also, you know, do they vacuum and get those beautiful? Regularly. It lines on the carpeting, which we love. Clay would. Yeah, I would think, right. You're an umpire. Your stickler. You've got to be detail oriented that would probably relate to being at home. There's nothing like a perfectly vacuumed carpet. Alright, love that. I think you and I are very similar. In that way. I like extremely neat. And I'm I'm trying to learn to the key thing is to you know, you start the vacuum inside the room and then come back out because you don't want to have to, like, step on tables during they get the footprint, right? You don't want that. So you have to do that strategically, but Then you gotta also decide where he which A C outlet you're going to use has to be on the outside of the room. That's right. I'll go back and step in. I love this. Let go. I think umpires are a lot like me that way, aren't they? You know, they gotta be. Gotta be detail already, Man. You got to keep the place clean. You gotta know what's going on. I thought you would have a robot vacuum. I do have a Roomba. Yeah, I do Have one of those. Yeah, that I mean, that goes just going right now in the kitchen because the dog inside the three big dogs are inside and Yeah, too hot. Well, I know their footprints all over the kitchen floor is killing me. So I got the Roomba goes constantly. You know, I saw the other day when I was back in Buffalo. I went we went on the long we want a nine mile walk. I took neck all over town. He was like, Can we just grab and pick us up down like you to be fide George? Place doubleheaders at 107. You're fine. I saw The Roomba equivalent of a lawnmower. Do they have those? I guess they could just goes and you know bumps into the fire hydrant hits the tree, right hits the mailbox. Pittman, there would be terrible because you'd have terrible lines I would give you put the Roomba and Hardwood floor. I don't use it on carpeting that the lines are terrible, right? But do they have that They have lawnmowers that just go by themselves. You just hit a button, and they go all over the lawn. Off the top of my head. The biggest difference to me would be if you got caught. If you toe got cut into the vacuum, you're fine If your toe gets caught under the electric mower like somebody's walking by, right and the electric mower goes a little haywire your sales on their foot. Yeah, I'm saying liability is probably an issue. I think this one girl was not going. I don't know if like when it gets to the curb, if you have, like, you know, uh They're they're big and curbs in Buffalo. We don't lot of supply out of areas where we live in a car or sidewalks. Maybe when it gets to the sidewalk, it would go back. I don't know, but that's a good point of anybody's foot. Anybody's told that would be bad. Hey, Daddy, What's that over there? You know, there goes Billy's toes, Capital. You gotta put him back on, uh, Yeah, That's not be a problem. The Stephen the sewer next door. Why are you jogging back and forth in front of my whole property? And you don't go anywhere else on the block, Would you? Why do you keep doing that? That really, but more work out. I mean, that's a great idea. Except for you know, I guess you'd have to have a fence or something like it was completely fenced. They had no fans don't have. They don't have defenses there. That's the one thing about Buffalo. There's no you gotta have one for the pool, I think, but otherwise you don't believe in fences. Just they don't do that in a huge charge anyway. Yes, I'm a stickler for the room back. Right, the guest list coming up next. There's a lot of great stuff today. Monte Pool is going to kick everything off. We'll give you the rest of it as well because money and some stuff with James Wiseman that we'll talk to him about as well. NBA playoffs, Lots of stuff in the Giants Kevin Gausman was again great. We have a trade already in the NBA, and it's a pretty major one. We'll do all of it coming up next pop in London happy Friday. Plus, the poll has already been erected. So I guess we'll start with that. Next. Only on the SportsCenter. This is Papa and Lund Live on..
Why USC's Evan Mobley Is the Best Big in the 2021 Draft
"For the next two months in advance of the two thousand twenty one nba draft that is scheduled for july twenty nine. We're going to be dedicating an episode of beyond college basketball. Podcast to notable prospect. Same way we did in advance of last year's nba draft. We started this series last week with a twenty two minute profile of kate cunningham. If you missed it and you're interested don't find it today. We will turn our attention to another prospect who seems like lot to go in the top five of the two thousand twenty one nba draft. His name is evan mobile. he's a seven foot center. Who averaged sixteen point four points. Eight point seven rebounds. Two point nine blocks in two point four assists in thirty three point nine minutes per game in his one season at usc shop fifty seven point eight percent from the field. He was the pac twelve player of the year freshman of the year and pac twelve defensive player of the year. He was a consensus second team. All american who led usc to the elite eight of the ncaa tournament. Most mock drafts have him second or third in this. Two thousand twenty one. nba draft. So let's start with this dead leg. Is evan mobely to you clearly. Unquestionably the best big in this rat. Yes i think. That is unquestionable. We agree. I mean at this point. How about this. How about this for a quick complica- compare him to a recent big one. He played against and was good against james wiseman to me mobilize more versatile player with the higher upside and a year ago in a weaker draft. Class what's interesting is wise men went second moby might wind up going second or third we mentioned in the previous partly sided. I don't think he's going to go. I in this draft because of centers. And how they're viewed and how their role is changing By the year but it is interesting like if you put mobile wiseman even knowing what wise. Men's out like a year ago i would have said the same thing i think i would still take mobely over wise men coming out of college and we agree on the sofa. If we agree there yes mobis got to be the best big available in this
Entering the Mystery
"There is a story about molina's redeem who's considered to be a sufi wiseman and fool and in this story. He's invited to teach at a large temple and the congregations very excited and the first thing he says is who knows what i'm going to teach and everybody just kind of sits there and he just shrugged his shoulders and the leaves and so they're they're pretty confused and upset so they invite him again and again the everybody's gathered and he says who knows what i'm gonna teach and everybody raises their hand. He shrugged his shoulders and exits third time. They invite him any again. You know poses the question. Who knows what. I'm going to teach and this time half the group racer had and he says good then you guys can teach the other half and he leaves again so i share that because it's an interesting question. What we really know about life you know we we go around at one level of knowing but there's these huge questions like where did this universe come from and if it what happened i mean what started off and if there was no starting point what is eternity mean really are what is love. I mean we use that word love all the time but if we slow down just to bid and sense a feeling okay no really. What is this what is love. And then we can wonder about how it is that humans create so much suffering.

Should The Simpsons Cast Be Replaced With AI Voice "Actors"?
"With most of the actors who voiced characters on the simpsons well into retirement age and the show seemingly having no intention of ever stopping a meeting. Cut wallover at wired. Uk wondered. could the actors all be replaced with a i rep locations. It makes a bit of sense off the bat. Near the proliferation of deepfakes circulating online aside major movie franchises have increasingly been patching together old footage of actors who have passed away like carrie fisher and the rise of skywalker and paul walker and furious. Seven or even just to fabricate a younger version of an actor who coincidentally had an entire body of work from their teenage years to use as reference points like robert. Downey junior in captain. America's civil war and will smith in jimmy man and with the simpsons. You only have to create the voice shortly. that's far easier especially with over three decades of content to pull from wired turn to tim. Mixed smithers canada-based. Ai researcher and media producer. Who builds a speech model that can be trained to mimic anyone's voice and notably has already recreated homer simpson for a few youtube videos including one where homer stands in for julia roberts in notting hill. Here's how he does it. Quoting wired mic smithers built generic. Ai model that can turn any text into audio speech in english when he wants to make a new voice he tunes the model further with two or three hours of new data of that particular person. Speaking along with a text transcript it focuses in on what makes a homer voice a homer voice and the different frequencies. He says after that it's a matter of asking the model to generate multiple takes. Each one will vary slightly and choosing the best one for your purposes and quotes bonnets. The performance is pretty flat as wired. Says it's quote as if he's reading out something that he doesn't really understand the meaning of and quotes which is pretty apt for homer still in the hut the performance. The show would probably be looking for there are other startups around. The world. Likes an antic in the uk and replica studios in australia. That are working to add. Some of that emotional resonance to a voice is using actual actors to help train them performing different lines over and over again with different emotional tones. Technically if you had someone recite all the existing phonemes in the english language or redescendu since that contained them all you should be able to then piece together any possible words. He wants but in reality. People's accents emotions can change things just slightly enough to make the process exceptionally challenging. Although absolutely doable and the time it takes to train the ai decreases over time with more data. Both semantic and replica studios who work primarily with video games where. There's a lot of intriguing possibilities with things like getting a character to say the player's name or whatever. The player wants them to or having a i basically work as a stand in until a real actor comes on board both of those companies say the actors they work with get paid anytime their voices are used in a game and this is a key element for me. Not just what rights doesn't actor have if they're only ever used to train in ai and not perform roll themselves so to speak but taking this back to the simpsons what rights do actors have whose voices are recreated to be their characters the screen actors guild affords actors certain bargaining rights over the use of their likeness. Which does explicitly extend to a performer's voice and while his protection is being rapidly expanded and reexamined as technology evolves you can impart think crispin glover for its origins after crispin glover declined to revive his role as george mic. Fly in back to the future. Part two they technically recast him. But they saddled the new actor. Geoffrey wiseman with prosthetics and employed classic stage tricks like having him upside down or wearing sunglasses to obscure his features as well as the use of some footage of glover himself from the first movie. Unless you were well aware that glover hadn't returned for the sequel. You probably wouldn't have had any idea that the george mcphee racine was any different from the first movie so glover sued the producers for using his likeness without his permission and for not paying him for the use of the footage. He shot for the first movie. But the legality of all of this now banned far beyond simply using a performance likeness and in many cases. Who is allowed to do what isn't so clear. There's copyright law which could give authority to the studio or whoever owns the rights but that counteracts with the right to publicity basically crispin glover thing and that's especially tenuous with cast as well known as the ones from the simpsons. You know a lot of people know these actors and if in a i replicated homer were out there. Advertising for some product people might assume dan castellaneta who voices homer is endorsing the product even if he had nothing to do with it so it's a tricky path to tread and personally. I'm a bit wary about the idea of ai. Replacing actors were any type of artists. Mean that's not to say that i don't want. Ai involved in arts. I think various tech can produce really rad art. I just don't think it can replace human-made arts and especially with something like the simpsons you know on the one hand. It's been on so long that it's the perfect fodder for ai. Replicated voices because then it could live on beyond the actors. And i guess honor them in some way but on the other hand. It's been so long that there are countless voice actors out there who can nail the characters voices perfectly and probably with more emotion.

Exploring And engaging autism With Doctor Todd Peter Levine.
"This is when this is the brand messaging podcast. Wait what really okay today. I'm here with todd. Peter levin he happens to not be a serial killer. Actually we can make it four words. It could be a doctor. Todd peter levin Like would you like fava beans with that. Now we're now we're really going. Its silence of the. Todd's thing in all seriousness. Though because we we are going to start joking. Not todd for a while. I didn't talk to him for a while. But dr todd. Peter levin is here with me today again. This is loren wise and the title of today's episode is exploring in engaging autism with dr todd. Peter levin todd tatas is. We're not doing this. Dr stuff are we know. Please don't please call todd. Thank thanks so much for having me. No i go by todd all over the place professionally and personally so i appreciate that. That's cool and it's a little bit more laid back okay. So we met. Let's just breaking the ice or breaking back the history here. We met nine thousand nine hundred eighty five correct. That can't camp frank a day in west. Brookfield massachusetts in a yeah. It was. That was the summer that we both turned. Eleven that we're both i. Would i remember it myself. Because i can't speak for you. Awkward lanky looking for socialization may be interested in girls and Stumbling miserably over ourselves but a great place to do that. I thought you know camping canoeing. Linda cabin it was awesome. I look back. And i found one of those photos that my wife saw it was like bothers is really short shorts. Unlike not only was it. An awkward timing was nineteen eighty five. Yeah and don't forget. Don't forget the tall socks socks pulled up to your knees with stripes. You know along the top part of it. That was a big move for me. Absolutely now i before we dig into him and and he's here for autism. He is a doctor. We're going to talk about the otherness. Podcast his podcast. It's in the process of production. But were you there and this is not a rumor. A boat blew up one summer. I was there when it happened. I didn't see it but lightning struck the lake and struck the boat and there was an explosion. Was that we in the same camp that year was that a year before a year later. Do you remember that it might know because that is definitely something i remember and my because you were there a few summers before me. And then i what happened was are overlapping. Ear was the first year. I was there in the last year. You were there. So there wasn't a boat explosion but was something almost as exciting. The you know the the fireworks on the fourth of july someone you know had a roman candle you know the the the basically the two that shoots balls at out and nailed someone in the face. Where the counselors. And i have no idea. Yeah that was. That was the excitement of eighty five. I think maybe was. I don't know if it was summer. But that was the most explosive in terms of flames. And and that sort of thing. I do remember. I hadn't picked up the drums at that point but there was a cabin. I think two or one up from ours and it was a guy with the way i remember. It was a white drum set and a whole bunch of us were inside and he was drumming. And i don't know again a month necessarily gonna say it was camp david. I remember just being in awe of this. This guy in this drum said and loud and rock and roll and i don't know maybe it was that summer camp and start for me. Yeah no i do remember it. It was yeah two cabins down. I guess it was empty and the guy had a drum set and he reminded me of sort of every eighties rocker. You would have any developing eighties rocker. I remember long blonde hair. You know terminator sunglasses. Some sort of cutoff t shirt. And he's a good guy too. So yeah i remember standing watching him and or hearing from like you know two hundred yards away or more because it was loud of course so and here's a little bit more of the irony. I'm always the one in most of my podcasts. When i talk to people about podcast say you know what dig in. Don't go into crazy stories too often. Don't talk about things that people can't necessarily relate to you. But i rarely have guests much less guests that i haven't really seen and the better part of thirty five years so i'm breaking my own rule here but the leading a little bit forward here we you added me on facebook and i guess i just accepted and didn't even put two and two together a little back before we connected in the fall right so that was going back a few years. I remember the name loren wiseman and you know as as we caught up you sort of picked up. I do remember quite a few things over the years. So i remembered hearing the name. See well reading the name seeing the photo in. Of course i wasn't gonna put two and two together and say that was definitely the kid i went to camp with but i said hey in the spirit of connectedness let's do it and then what transpired from there was reading about your work in authentic messaging brand messaging and sort of putting important things out there in ways that are about the about the authenticity authority. Not about kind of gone with the fads and stuff too. So that moment. are those your post. Plus my transition in life from where i was living in rhode island to cenex were important. Wants to and as podcast idea came to me with a group of friends from college a few months earlier i reached out and the results were
2021 NBA Draft Big Board
"Time to do some updates on the big board and like i said before these big boards are based off a consensus at the end of the day between nba scouts. General managers. that. I'm talking to right now about where they have. These guys ranked them not ranking them. According to team needs this is not a mock draft and for the most part those nba scouts and general managers win the day. If i disagree with them but everybody has a guy higher than me then. He goes higher If there's a tie sometimes then you know. I may come in and put my finger on the scales but what i'm trying to do here is report. What i think is the general consensus from nba teams. And i want to start with the top five because these top five right now. I will do my tears column towards the end of the draft right before the draft happens usually about a week or two before the draft. But if i were to do it today i would say that. There's as many as five guys who are looking like tier one guys if you remember from last draft when i did my tears column. I personally didn't have any guys in tier one talking to nba teams and be scouts. While there was guys that got votes for tier one. Like lamelo ball. Anthony edwards james wiseman ultimately none of them got the fifty percent threshold to move into tier one. If i if i were betting man right now and for that particular survey to a pretty wide swath of nba teams and general managers and scouts. I'm thinking that there might be as many as five tier one prospects in this draft right now. So we'll start at the top. He was number one a big board. One point oh he stays number one here in big bore two point okayed cunningham. The point forward freshman out of oklahoma state. Who who's been really everything that he was advertised to be as the one of the most complete players in the draft who plays one of the most important positions in the draft wing. He's averaging eighteen points a game six rebounds a game nearly four assists the game one and a half steals a game. He shooting thirty nine percent from three. Which i think was definitely one of the swing skills for kate cunningham. That teams had coming in. How well of an outside shooter is he going to be and so far. The numbers look really good on that end. If there's an issue with kate cunningham right now and i think it's an interesting one. It's that he has not been a particularly careful with the ball. He's averaging three and a half turnovers a game which is which is pretty high and he has a lot in this oklahoma state offense. They rely heavily on him which means at times. He's forcing things. But that's the one red flag. If i'm looking at you know just sort of overall the numbers and what's going on where the red flag might be. It's that again. Three point five turnovers jumps to about three point eight in this per thirty six. And that's the one that i would that i would be careful about watching because his reputation coming in was that this is one of the steadiest playmakers that you're going to find his ability to see the game to be afford leader very high and that assist to turnover ratio is really the only major war that i can really see on statistical profile right now and again. I think you have to caveat that some by the fact that you look at the team that he's playing on and how teams can really game plan for him every night that there are reasons why i think that cunningham might not have the highest assist to turnover ratio at least one that we would expect.

Jupiter and Saturn will form the first "double planet" in 800 years
"What astronomers call a great conjunction, the closest they could be seen in the sky together. For nearly 800 years, according to Scientific American and Astronomical conjunction occurs when any two heavenly bodies appear to pass or meet each other as seen from Earth. To make one great, though, requires an encounter between our solar system's two largest planets, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, a line to allow the giant worlds to seemingly convene roughly every 20 years. But the last time Jupiter and Saturn appeared so close was July 16th. 16 23 back when Galloway was still alive, a little more than a decade after he first used to telescope to discover Jupiter's four largest moons that now collectively bear his name, Great conjunctions. Have at times drawn scientists to speculate over their possible links with major events. For instance, Johannes Kepler investigated whether the star of Bethlehem Which in the Nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew Guided the three wise men to Christ. Birth was a great conjunction. Calculating that one in fact, did occur in seven BC Is it possible the Madge I or Wiseman and we don't know. There were three. Remember the Bible never mentions three Wiseman. But is it possible the Madge I who were basically astrologers were following the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter? Well, one did occur in seven BC, So the timing seems to be about right. Where is he? Who has been born king of the Jews for we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him. It makes sense to me that God would use such an alignment of heavenly bodies to announce the birth of a king or other important events like sign posts. Genesis Chapter one verse 14 and God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be forced signs and for seasons and for days and years. He determines the number of the stars he gives to all of them their names some Fort 1 47 4, But for those that study Astro theology, they see the Bible as Astrological allegory. The story of Jesus they believe is really about the sun s u N rather than son s. O N. Passing through the Zodiac each year. And indeed, there are numerous examples where the life of Jesus, beginning with his birth seemed to align if you will, quite neatly with the astrological Zodiac. Consider that the sun s U. N is reborn every year on the 25th day of December. That is the days begin to lengthen during the winter solstice. Jesus is born in the stable between the constellations of the horse and goat secretaries and Capricorn. 30 years after Christ birth, he was baptized 30 days after the sun s U. N is born. It enters the sign Aquarius, the water bearer Thies are but two Now to be clear. I'm a Bible believing Christian. I believe the Bible

Who says i wanna do. What frederick wiseman does. But i am worried. How does one make living doing this. When you're talking about the financing that you raise that's to get the film made but how then do you keep the lights on. These are not movies that get a release like a marvel movie in thousands of theaters. These are not movies that play on loop on television. So how does somebody if it's not. I hope it's not a rude question to ask. But how does how does one make a living doing this first. Nineteen sixty six to the end of nineteen seventy. I had another job in a consulting company. And i took time off to shoot the films. I edited them on nights and weekends. I started to pour films at the end of nineteen seventy because at that point. I was distributing the films in high school. I had a distributor but i got the rights back things i got so screwed up so screwed by the distributor. Nothing lewis by district. And i set up my own distribution company Knows days in your early seventies was a big big market in sixteen distribution. Are one point when there were two hundred screenings so high school a month So i was able to earn a living from the film reynolds. Sixteen million rentals a small salary that is sometimes was able to take out of the production and also you can a. I started getting invited to talk in schools and colleges and in america. They pay well to do that. You can make more money talking about movies and making them so. I was able to make living since nineteen seventy. I've supported myself by trying to make approximately one year and owning whatever money came from the distribution was nine. I've had the hell for thirty nine years. Karen conti jack who is run the distribution company. And i make additional money by giving talks so close three sources. I'm able to have my independence in continue making the mortgage now. I believe that you've had opportunities that have come up. Where hollywood proper you know. The narrative of traditional in the traditional sense side of the business wanted you to come over. And i wonder if you can confirm or rebut a few things that i came across. Is it true that you wrote an early draft of the thomas crown affair. While i worked on the draft. I worked with allen trestman trust and came to me with the idea of bankrupt. He wanted to write a movie script. And i invented the female character and worked together on.

"wiseman" Discussed on Warriors Off-Court
"To pick up the breadcrumbs on that in particular mystery right right so but definitely just another setback for a team. That's already reeling from the loss of klay thompson right So i think it's frustrating for for the warriors but the thing is i think every team is doing with this in some way shape or form. Last i checked. There were fifty positive coronavirus tests throughout the league. Some of some of those tests are affecting key players so The warriors are not alone in having to deal with a training camp without core members of their team. But i think the fact that it is wise men in and out of every single player on this team. I think you would have probably gone into training camp saying that why hasn't needed it the most Because he's the one you know rookie new guy who's who's gonna be children a big load here. I mean kelly oubre as obviously new. I'm going to be starting but he is He's always been around a bit. And i think there were some similarities to their offense. He ran last year in mid in phoenix. And what the warriors are going to try to do So it'll it'll be. It'll be interesting to see a how long these absences last than how much it ends up affecting the beginning at the beginning of the season because bay lippold no punches. At the beginning of that schedule your opening the season on the road at brooklyn a a good brooklyn team with a healthy kevin durant kyrie irving And then a couple of days later. You're playing a nationally televised showcase christmas day game at milwaukee against john s. I mean Their throw their being thrown into fire. And if you don't have a healthy wiseman and green it's hard to imagine you added those games And it also. I'm curious to see you know win. Wiseman comes back. Like how long does it take him to get his feet under mariah. I mean That was a big storyline. I was following in was going to fall in training. Camp was who wins that starting center job because you have kevon looney who everyone saying is healthy now and then you have Markey's chris who was who finished last season super. I don't think it was a guarantee that wiseman was going to be a starting center from day. One even though in some ways it would who've the wires to kinda you know throw in the fire a little bit exactly. I mean this is the definition of a is what it is situation right But if we had our druthers would be like to have wisely in.

"Just. My life is different. The players actually have to go play. Nba game stern all their switch. I honestly don't really envy and a lot of ways right now The warriors Officially opened training camp practices on monday was supposed to be sunday but ended up having to push back a day because they had two players. We later learned that they were dre mongering james wiseman test positive for coronavirus. So they have to go. Through the lean league mandate name league mandated protocols which basically requires self quarantining for ten to twelve days. And then you can start to try to register to a negative coronavirus tests We don't know exactly win. Both of these players tested positive for all we know. Is that we. We found out about them on. Last tuesday It could have been even earlier that they actually tested because they had started testing. The saturday Wall we really know right now. Is that james. Wiseman is ahead of drama green in terms of getting back. James was approved to watch practice yesterday. with he sat on the balcony overlooking the court at chase center the practice court at chasing her with julia and kind of going over what he was saying. So i'm not honestly totally sure exactly what that means in terms of exactly how close he is to getting back. But it's definitely a positive sign Dream on has not been clear to watch practice yet And honestly if you're gonna if you're gonna choose for one of these two guys to be back in the next couple of days i would. I would actually prefer wiseman Economically make the argument that drones more important as a player. But wiseman needs these. These reps more wise been needs this training camp. You know this is a guy who not only a rookie. He has not played in a competitive game in over a year. Left memphis early admitted that into aa suspension so he has not played a game since november. Two thousand nineteen. And you know he's a guy who could potentially be you're starting center. You need him to understand where to be on the court Dream on meanwhile. I don't think it's a huge deal. I think when he gets back he'll be he'll he'll adjust very quickly. I think the the thing you really losing from having him out there trying to get his ability to organize the defense and get guys in the right spots newcomers because there are a lot of players learning the system right now and dream on his a great teacher when it comes to especially the defense. We basically the defensive quarterback What i'd love so not having dream on at a training camp setting isn't terrible for draymond. Green the player. He knows exactly what the system needs of him. He knows exactly where his body needs to be. I have nothing but confidence that dream on will be fine but having draymond green the player at training camp would be phenomenal for people. Like for example. James wiseman i've read. It's my understanding. So yeah he's he's watching practice and he's watching. It was pachulia. I prefer wiser. Be watching practice with dr green. I'd i'd love for him to be learning the rotations and that's true for somebody like kelly oubre to..
What to watch in all five NBA Christmas Day games
"Sick it up to let's go to the nba Who went from the players stating they weren't gonna play till january and the league. Say you're going to play at christmas and the players saying no. We're not start until january the legally. No seriously you're starting on christmas. And they are. They are actually starting on christmas. We have we have games christmas day. Nba we've got five games announced in the nba Maverick's aunt lakers pelicans add heat. Golden state warriors will visit the milwaukee bucks. That's going to play the celtics. So that's a kyrie irving revenge game if you believe in that kind of stuff and then We got the clippers and denver. I believe that's gonna be the last game of the night. But what. I'm looking at his. Luka doncic shaw getting a showcase game against the lakers christmas day. That's going to be a great introduction for the five or six people that watch basketball. That don't know the don't know everything about luca at this point Pelicans and heat like zion williamson a christmas day game. The pelicans played on christmas day last year. It believe the nuggets bite ziad with the injury so Good good opportunity to showcase ion williamson golden statement walkie without clay. How much can steph do with the kid from memphis as james wiseman And not clippers and denver. I mean that's just too great teams from the western conference We'll see what they're gonna do. I mean quite leonard still there. They underachieved last year. They're gonna they're gonna be looking to do a little bit more this year
Thompson has torn Achilles tendon, expected to miss season
"So it's the injury everybody's talking about but with clay sadly you gotta specify which injury you're talking about. Are you talking about the one in game. Six of the twenty nine thousand finals. The last time we saw him play a game or the one suffered earlier in the week. Which is an achilles tendon. Tear he is now out. It could be if the calendars right two and a half years between games. We're looking forward to having him back at the start of the twenty twenty one. Twenty two season knick. Fidel has been all over the warriors for years and he joins us on the shell. Pennzoil performance line nick. Good morning first thing. Just the response in and around the organization on the news zubin. Everybody's just depressed excited leading into the draft. And in the fact that wiseman was there at number two he was number one on their board and and they were just really looking forward to having steph klay draymond and then plugging in wiseman and seeing what we can give them and then they range of emotions in those couple of hours before the draft and then after the draft they really couldn't even celebrate. Everybody was so sad about clay. I mean he is the guy behind the scenes with all the star power in that locker room that sets the tone for everybody else. And that's why kerr and all those players they love it and so to know that he's going to be out again for another year which just crushing for. Everybody involved nikki. Give us an insight. Into how bob myers and company dealt with the news of klay thompson literally hours before the nba draft that make their decision challenging more challenging looking at other guys like lamelo ball considering he was going to be available. Jay bob address that right afterwards instead. Look wiseman was our guy if he was there we were taken him and obviously if the emotions involved right before the big or unprecedented we. We really never seen anything like it. Before where a star player who has won titles in an organization gets another serious injury right before you gotta make a huge selection for your future but all along when you talk to people in the organization they love what wise men could give them and they're confident that once he gets into their system playing and learning alongside draymond that he can be maybe that bridge or potentially down the line Tracey's nobody knows for sure but wiseman all along was their guy in. I don't think anything that happened with. Clay change to focus when he was number two

Breaking Down Tonights NBA Draft: The Players, The Picks, and Virtual Fashion
"Mike schmidts. Thank you for joining me mandy day that you work towards every single year has finally arrived. Yeah i feel like this is our our super bowl and we've been waiting for this forever. I we thought it was going to be in june. And then maybe october and now here in november so you know i think teams and myself are very excited to get this one of the books. Mike schmidts is an nba draft analyst for espn. And he's been traveling the world scouting nba prospects for nearly a decade. I love the nba. draft personally. I went to the draft at the garden. Growing up in new york as a sad knicks fan and i still love the draft. Which tells you something about my own personal pathologies. The weirdness of this draft mike. You said it. This is going to be held in a way that has never been seen before. It's going to be entirely remote adam. Silver the commissioner. Mark tatum the deputy commissioner. They're going to be reading out. Picks live from espn studios in bristol. Where you are right now. So tell me what it's been like for teams and for players to go through this whole draft process in the midst of a global pandemic. It's been very very challenging for teams and players alike from the team side. They're used to having march madness the nba draft. Combine tournaments like portsmouth invitational. Which is where you see. You know a jimmy butler and some of these seniors pop up. They're able to have their individual workouts one on one workouts team workouts. I really have these guys in their building and this pre-draft process that just simply hasn't been the case so think you have teams kind of relying on a lot of these zoom calls right. We've all been kind of zoom jail more or less for the last few months You know they're relying on film. They're relying on intel and then from the players perspective. I think they just want to finally hear their name called. I mean this is the moment that they've been waiting for their entire lives. And so i feel a lot of these kids just having to have this. Push back and push back in push-back. They've each had very different circumstances. I mean some guys are like in the gym working out with nba players. Every day. some are with you know their brother and their cousin and some empty. Jim just one on getting workout. Since so it's been very strange. I guess the thing. I think of when i think about what might be lost in this iteration of the draft like are they going to be suits mike. Are we gonna get like nba draft fashion. That we've been blessed by in the past. Oh we're getting it it's coming it's coming virtually you're not gonna see that same strut the same level of excitement that we generally get in barklays within walking up on the stage but from everything i've seen out on social media everything i've heard. I think the suit game is still going to be strong. Yeah i just want if one of those guys wanna go retro and bring back like the seventeen but in suit. I just wanna make sure. The camera frame contains all seventeen of those budgets. We're gonna do everything we can to get that done. I hope we really really highlight the fashion. Because that that might steal the night to be honest i want to take a deep dive into the top three players in the draft to start here because the three of them. You've been talking about relentlessly for months. Now lamelo ball. James wiseman anthony edwards. They're all still in play for the number one overall pick which belongs of course to the minnesota timberwolves and i want to start with lamelo because we know as the brother lonzo the son of lavar and he chose to play overseas australia instead of going to the college game but for the uninitiated ear. What is lamelo offered to whichever team does end up selecting him tonight. I think he's the best prospect in the draft. Honestly i think if he played at duke kentucky enter any big name college program and he didn't have some of the questions about kind of the circus that has surrounded him at times in his life. I think he would be the runaway number. One pick in terms of his game. I mean he's a big point guard. Six seven close to six foot. Eight is one of the youngest players in the draft. Who was a late bloomer. So i think people remember him as the young you know twelve year old looking kid bomb and half court shots but he's really grown into his frame as great size has the ball on a string as a ball handler. He's incredibly shifty and smooth and his playmaking is ridiculous. The way he sees the game is really really special.

I asked if we could have a timeshare for chauncey we still having him he did not give me a counteroffer to that question. How big is this for the clippers. Well look i've personally had conversations with chauncey about his desire to some day work with tyrod lou together an organization. It almost happened in cleveland of years. Ago and sean was offered the president's job this is these guys have wanted for a long time. Now they're getting opportunity. I'm super excited for him ratio. Look there's other about point guards in basketball and catchers in baseball that make for great coaches and look. He is led a team as the point guard and the floor general and i think he can help tie in that staff. That staff is really good. Bye with withdrew. Dan craig who they stole from. Miami is well like they. They have mask the nice staff there. I just hope though that the clippers can borrow the detroit pistons in guy for occasionally so they occasionally just announced him as chauncey billups. I've timeshares all over the place here. Let's stern cova time. We'll let us overlap and do other things and and there you go. I mean it is interesting to i mean. Cianci's had a growing relationship with the clippers. He did analysis on their tv broadcast. This past season. I think it's such a good organization for him considering he does have all of these ideas about what he might want to do in the future because not only can have the coaching experience with thai lou. But that is such a strong front office so to be able to be up close and sort of see that decision making. We know that chauncey might want to run a team. One day he certainly would be more than qualified to do it and getting finishing school with the clippers. We'd be pretty great too. So good luck chauncey billips.

"That leaves us only nine days until the draft okay. This is as wide open as draft. We've seen in recent memory. We still don't know who's going go number one or if the timber. Wolves currently have the top pick. We'll even keep that selection or trade. It one potential option at the top seven footer. James wiseman who shares a position of course with minnesota's franchise center. Karl anthony towns now bleacher report. Jonathan wasserman reported the timber. Wolves wise men despite the potential overlap but bryan. You discuss last week. Might not want to be going to minnesota because towns is there so is drafting him worth the risk for the wolves that number one. If the guy doesn't want to be there this bring timberwolves fans back to the johnny. Flynn ricky rubio draft steph curry draft where they drafted a couple of point guards and they got the wrong guy to bring up a bad memory but you know it's not the wiseman anything against the city of minneapolis. The wolves organization. He just wanna come in where he would be the franchise center. If lamelo ball was on the board for the atlanta hawks. I'm not so sure that would be the greatest fit either. Because they've got trae young so gerson rosa susan. His second year of m. temples doesn't really have a history of a draft record yet. So we're we're not sure if he would take the most talented player overall. But i have to say. I've been talking to a lot of executives over the last seven to ten days. There's been a lot of talk with this draft and almost everybody has a different opinion about who the top players should be. I know that our experts here think it's lamelo ball. But i'm not hearing that out there. I'm not hearing consensus at all. So the temples have a firecracker on their hands on what to do with this and and it may be something that they wanna get out of this if they can trade back which is one of the reasons abe active on the trade market. But good to all you folks out there doing mock drafts. Because i think this is gonna be a year. We're getting anything close to accurate. Mock draft is going to be impossible rachel. I think that the timber wolves need a veteran presence right like they've got good young players right or sending players and towns was the type of guy that many gm's for years during these. Gm survey said you would start your franchise with him. Well i think what he needs. Is someone like jimmy butler. Maybe not jimmy butler would someone. There's trump no definitely not but someone like that that can come in and help that team grow up to the level where we expect them to be at. We expected this team to have a surge at some point into the playoff standings. And we just haven't seen it. So i would try to trade the pick because certainly wiseman doesn't want to be there Maybe you take anthony edwards but then you're just adding another young talent to a team that still doesn't have a lot of veteran presence his presence on that team on the problem with trying to trade the pick is there are other teams out there also trying to trade their picks in fact rate the team with the second pick the.

"Petty part of this i after that eight easter. Give me k. d. and the nets traveling to the warriors that would be circled on everyone's particular calendar and the last of the petty matchups the clippers at home taking on the denver nuggets. And i also get to. La games in there. So maybe if we can all go to the arena or at least we can go to the catch two games. Yes by the way So you're bringing the petty. That reminds steel magnolias. Line right if you don't have anything nice to say. Come sit by me. Jorge sedano Brian do you feel that that we we can get all of those matchups in some of those going to go on opening night december. twenty second. Well here we go again with me having to be screwed and having to bring the realist I think those are fun. Matchups george but didn't take two teams going coast to coast and the first week of the season and the nba is looking to reduce travel by twenty five percent or more this year. So i think they're going to try to keep teams local especially on christmas now. Yes there's going to be ring night. Which will be on tnt. And then there's going to be christmas day games will be on. Abc and the spn. I'm sure there's negotiations with our bosses and bosses over in at turner to figure that out. But i think that the game that you will see as the centerpiece game. We'll be warriors lakers and the reason that is because not only. Do you bring steph curry and klay thompson. Back from the the national audience has not seen in a while. but also you're gonna have unless the warriors make a big trade. The top a top three pick in this draft to display. Possibly in his first game could be james wise. Men's first game in addition to the defending champion lakers. That's a delicious match up to five o'clock which is two o'clock on the west coast. I'm not saying. I don't like lakers. George i think it's more likely the west coast teams out here. That's interesting and look we'll have to see whether the schedule in terms of them trying to get teams in different parts of the country. I could see them saying greet.

I don't think I knew who it was. It had a lyric that I found. Amazing the song is called lawyers, guns and money.

"My brothers as I was mentioning to you earlier in the interview. You know their records. I had their records at my disposal. Beatles in? In the in the Beatles, the Beatles were amazing. And I and I grew up thinking they were popular and successful because they were so amazing. It's only like many many years later that I realized Oh. It just happens to be. They were amazing at the same time, but they were just a young kind of like they were sold largely because they were a boy band, and they were sold interesting kind of capitalist system as as as. As Drake is sold or as other popular young things are sold to people. This is what you stood by, and it's like it never dawned on me. That like well. The Beatles might have been another like object like that for two was mass appeal because they were so good. I kinda thought no. This is the everyone loves this because it's so powerful, but that's not the case. It's just just really fortunate. It's just really interesting where they have to be really great. Because that's exceptional, that's not generally the rule at all. That's what you end up realizing, or at least that's how I see it as life goes on. So. So you know things always be propped up. That are hollow. Things will always be you know at any given time. In the arts in all the arts whether it's music or theater. You'll have all sorts of people that are successful that are not very good. There's all sorts of really mediocre things that are celebrated as being the ship that ship. And and a certain amount of people. Are really incredible, and I just part of life. There's not everyone sees and for a lot of people. I'm speaking doesn't make sense for a lot of people. The things that are the mainstream success stories are very legitimate and deserve it, and that's fine. That's the way like this. There's a smaller amount of people for whom great art is is made by a smaller amount of people, and it's really kind of thrilling. I think in that second camp when you recognize that someone who actually has the goods. Gets acknowledge you know like like it's like the difference of the Tom, cruise, winning austerer, you know or or or day Lewis, it's kind of like. Town. New My mind. It's kind of like what they Tom Cruise. It's like you know it's like it makes you feel a upset. Terms of what could have. It was almost like it was almost like that. That movie that was recently made. Oh my goodness by this huge director. On my God was on net flicks, and it was nominated for an Oscar. Geez was so bad I can't remember. The Talian the Irish. Irishman. Thank you, it was like. Oh, here's an opus. The Irishman I cannot get my three hours back. I watched that piece of garbage that was nominated. To me, it was. That was nominated for an Oscar, and then I find out Bob like similar to you. Find out how there's a machine behind. A lot of these things and it's the machine that propped up. The Irish man to be nominated for so many awards. And it's like I you know. There are movies like you said Simmer to the Beatles as a bad where the winner was actually a great movie. but yeah after this past year. I. I I am not impressed with whoever gets nominated so flipping now on its head. And you were talking about you know the great music that's out right now. What are you listening to right now? Like what's in your ear buds? Well you know there's a mixture of old and new thing And Sometimes when people ask me that question I always feel. Pressure to buy united almost like people, WanNa, know, what are you listening to modern? That's current. And Concurrent. Just like what what are you? What are you listening to? What's inspiring today? On. Okay, well, I was just GonNa. Well I, just wanted to say like one of the things that that really knocked me out in recent times. It's already twenty years old, but I didn't hear it the first time which was a college dropout that Cognac. And and when I started listening to that kind of just I couldn't believe it because the way I saw Kanye West is just for like the kind of you know. all you know he's. He's a good example of what I was saying earlier I mean. He didn't blow me away. All I saw was him as as a celebrity and the character and I heard him say well. He just did all sorts of horrible things that I've noticed. Anyone does during the last couple of years. You know things that he's said about. African Americans from that to his like supportive trump or defensive trump. It's like what is this guy? You know what a loser! and. Then I heard this record that he made the college dropout. And I couldn't and I was like I was. I was it kills me killed. mean the way a great. Any great record shows you I mean I was. I. Was Beside Myself? I was like I. was telling everybody I knew who also might have missed the boat like me? The first time and and I started, checking out more of his work ended left me very. Left me, ultimately super confused. You know 'cause like I said a real allegiance to anyone who blows me away and I. You know I can't deny guy. Just totally fucking blew me away with what he did. Musically and sampling wise. There was a premise many times in the world of HIP hop. The people have to kind of Brag about the kind of virtuosity that people have brought sampling bub-bubba Blah Blah Blah. I haven't really heard many examples. That really blew me away of of people demonstrating this, you know amazing musicality with that, and yeah, he totally got he does it just a delivers? It's so. It's so. It's just so impressive, musically interesting lyrically. It's so cool that the. Just, the kind of kind humor in that record the kind of Narratives that he makes that record. The kind of theatricality in that record, a man, just a lot of it I just loved it. So anyways I mean that's. That's you know. Listen to that a lot I I was born in the sixties I grew up in the seventies. The music fifties I always thought was very hokey. I didn't like any of it. And later in life, I kind of started to realize there's a lot of value to a lot of the stuff in the fifties, I couldn't. I couldn't hear it when I was a younger person. As I became older I started to hear. You get older. you start to realize that everybody. was was young and everybody becomes oil. You start to understand the universality of their way.

NFL investigation although some people feel like the NFL have it set right right now so that he will not play. Okay Joe Stick around for a second we need you for another NFL story. Let's turn now to Colin Kaepernick. His NFL sponsored workout takes place on Saturday. Perhaps his best chance to return to the NFL but not everyone sees this as a genuine opportunity. First let's take a look at how the controversy surrounding Cabernet developed since he took a seat and later a knee during the national anthem in two thousand sixteen to protest police brutality and promote social justice this country stands for freedom Liberty Justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now. The need for us to have an active citizen sometimes that's messy and controversial and it gets people. People angry and frustrated is not easy doing unpopular things and when their significant change and I feel like that flag represents was supposed to represent. I'll stand. I'm ready to step on that field. I'm ready to play. It will be Colin Cabernet. Under Center this Sunday Touchdown Colin Kaepernick Sixteen touchdowns for Deceptions in San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is opting out of his contract. He's radioactive active too. These owners Holland company does have a job because what he did is beyond the sidelines of what happens on the field of political for the NFL not to give Colin on Gabar naked job. This is what's going to do and I think Collins GonNa sit. I think the likelihood of calm sitting is much more than getting the job Colin Kaepernick like the rest of us. It has to digest the news at another team. Assigned a quarterback ain't him but the fact is Capri can't get a job anywhere. Wouldn't you love to see. Are you one of these. NFL owners say get that son of the field. He's fired fired. These are not normal circumstances. And you don't need us to explain to you. The reasons why there wasn't wasn't a protest right now. Who wants to have the conversation? How would it start off? Salute Colin Kaepernick for being as powerful as he was and I hope that some NFL own. I wish I own the NFL team right now. Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance for collusion against the National Football League owners. We don't know at this point. What his real in game here is with this Colin Kaepernick Kaffir? Nick is one of the faces of the Nike. Just do it campaign. Nike taken fat Nike Santa on this. We think he's good for business. The National Football League and Colin Kaepernick have settled their collusion kids. How could it not be seen as a victory for Colin Kapp Point? It feels really farfetched and unlikely that he'll Klay again in the NFL anything's possible. Dental finally granted Colin Kaepernick. The workout. You have been seeking workout is really important regardless of whether it's Tokyo Looking for opportunities Colin Kaepernick Saga goes on. And let's see where that saga goes just seen Andersen back with us. What what do you make of why they're holding the workouts now on a Saturday before an NFL Sunday a lot unpack? It's been a thousand and forty seven days Sens Colin Kaepernick last played in the NFL. And I have talked to League sources. Who Do find it curious that up out of all that time it is finally happy now? Not only only that but on the weekend after Antonio Brown is talking to the NFL after which there may be a suspension that may some some people may want to massage. There's talk of that at least so I do find it curious because one thing whether you can say about whether he's ready to play for. NFL team in three years or not. Not There's never been a reason not to give him a tryout to at least look under the hood so it is curious although I know there are people from even our network who believe that this. This is a legitimate workout in the opportunity for him to showcase that anybody who's not showing up I'm told by some teams. They'll still look at the videotape. So if he can show show that he is ready and he is capable which many of us still believe that he is. We'll see if there's anything that transpires in the NFL injury wise attrition wise that that creates a perfect situation perfect storm for him to get an opportunity to this. We're not revealing two teams to him. Eric Reed talked about how this might be a PR stunt teams interested in capital reached. South to the League is in the common in these search. Any other guy trying out. That's a really great question. Someone said to me yesterday Josephina when someone wants a legitimate workout workout with the NFL. What typically happens? That player works out on a Tuesday comes to the club that teams medical evaluators. Look at that player with their own doctors actors. Or what have you. That's what typically happens. So what do you think. This is different because Colin Kaepernick is different and there are so many mitigating circumstances surrounding Colin Colin Kaepernick which the NFL obviously is not ignoring. And there's a huge PR situation around him in optics of that also cannot be ignored. So I think I think the setting up of this workout definitely helps to assuage that but I still think that Colin Kaepernick has the opportunity to rise above whatever that may be and instill put seconds left. Where do you think he goes? Do you think he's I. Think the best circumstance for him right now would be the Carolina Panthers simply because they don't have Cam Newton. They have a backup.

"The lines. I'm Ryan's MLB. Assigned stealing investigation is expanding to more teams Antonio Brown and Colin Kaepernick both have big meetings with the NFL but first some breaking news presumptive number one pick in the NBA. Gay Draft Memphis. James Wiseman has been declared ineligible by the school they will now withhold their star freshman from games we can still practice with the number thirteen ranked tigers now the move coming after wiseman withdrew his lawsuit against the NCAA just this morning the NCAA ruled him quote. Likely eligible and that ineligibility stem from a payment made lead by Memphis coach Penny Hardaway of approximately eleven thousand. Five hundred dollars to help. WISEMAN FAMILY RELOCATE TO MEMPHIS now. The Issue Hardaway was coach at Memphis East high high school at the time were wiseman ended up playing and since Hardaway donated one million dollars to the University of Memphis over a decade ago the NCAA considered him a booster during wiseman payment making it improper wiseman played in the Tigers. I three games to after obtaining a temporary restraining order November eighth that allowed him to play. So let's get more on this breaking news from Espn College basketball. Insider Jeff for Zillow Jeff. How did Memphis come to the determination? That wise as men would be ineligible. I think they realized that the end of the day this lawsuit James mcgann say it would result in a suspension regardless and I think that if they continue to play James Weisman they could be hit with additional penalty. So I think at the end of the day they thought of it as say the deem Penny Hardaway booster he gave money to James Weisman's family and then why it's been enrolled at the booster school so regardless of whether he coached him in a you things like that at the end of the. Hey that's a penalty. And he was going to be suspended Nick Emery at Byu accepted about twelve thousand dollars two summers ago and he was suspended for nine games. So I think Memphis saw this coming and said Hey. Let's get let's get ahead of this. Let's rule him eligible now as opposed continuing to play him. Because this goes back like you said this goes back to a million dollar donation in two thousand eight. The Penny Hardaway gave to Memphis and at that time and since then he's considered a booster and him giving money to James Wiseman then why has been enrolling at Memphis that that is illegal under the NCAA rules. Oh you know regardless of him. Coaching a you him coaching in highschool him becoming a head coach. Now it's a booster giving money to the family of prospect and that is going to be a penalty and I think think that Memphis realized that if we continue to play him after the. NCIS told us a couple of times now that he's likely an eligible. We could be hit with additional penalties. And you know if this dragged out until tournament postseason ban we could be talking a lot of different things and so I think Memphis said hey. Let's let's get this done. I assuming the way. The statements read that he withdrew his lawsuit and they're talking crazy. I'm guessing a penalty is coming pretty soon so I think that the Memphis had all right. Let's just deal with the penalty now as opposed to what happens in a few months. Okay wiseman it seems to be caught in the middle of this in some ways. What are you hearing about what he's saying in all of this? I mean according to Memphis. He didn't know about the payment to uh his family back when he moved from Nashville to Memphis in the summer of two thousand seventeen. It's you know Penny Penny Hardaway's statements after the first game after the second game when he after he was ruled ineligible made it seem like play and but his lawyers said Hey weisman reached out to us today. said he wanted to withdraw the lawsuit. And so I'm guessing license on board with all this. It seems like Memphis. Wiseman family are all in lockstep right now all right. So what's next. We sort of have to wait for the NCAA NCAA. The Memphis said we're GONNA apply for. Reinstatement once that happens it's on the NCAA to either ruled him. Ineligible rule eligible give him a suspension. So we're all sort of waiting. My guess yes is that he's GonNa there's going to be some sort of restitution on the eleven thousand five hundred dollars that Hardaway gave to Weisman's family as moving expenses back in twenty seventeen and then like I said Nick Emery got a nine game suspension. Attention a couple of summers ago for twelve thousand dollars in special benefits. My guess is that the suspension for wise and we'll be around the same thing right. Jeff Bordello all over the story. Jeff thank you so much now. Let's bring a basketball analyst. Jay Bilas to talk more on this J. You and I were both lawyers. I look at this particular situation. I say okay. He has a lawsuit and then he drops the lawsuit and then he's ruled ineligible from the outside looking in some ways you would think why drop the lawsuit in that case. If you're going to be ruled ineligible well Ryan. I've spoken with James Weisman's attorneys in this matter and the lawsuit was dropped because the AA told wise. Men's lawyers until Memphis that they wouldn't entertain a resolution of this matter while lawsuit was pending. So the case was they they called it. nonsuited but basically dismissed dismissed without prejudice and could be refiled if they're unable to reach a resolution of this but once the lawsuit was was essentially dismissed then Memphis as as per usual in these type of eligibility cases declared the player ineligible and then applies for reinstatement. Now there are a couple of things going on here one memphis this was in discussions with the NC Double A.. About trying to resolve this case. That's why the incidentally told them you know we're not gonNA do anything until the lawsuit is is dismissed and we're not GONNA do anything. Well there's any pending case. But there's also a saber rattling thing going on here because the NC Double A.. Could could start a separate infractions case against Memphis as for playing an ineligible player so there could be. There already could be an agreement in place with a wink nod saying look if you dismiss this case. Here's how we see it playing out and it would be something short of of nine games in an eleven thousand five hundred dollars matter. That's a third of the season which in basketball at twenty seven game regular season Games. So they could they could have already said. Hey we see this coming down something less than that and come to a resolution of it and then they'll go from here but the NCAA ziplock basically said look we. We are not doing anything until while there's a pending case going on so unless you dismiss this. We're not entertaining entertaining resolution of this and still still have the option to put a separate infractions case on Memphis for playing eligible players sensually Bylaw nineteen thirteen the restitution rule where they could. They could really really hit Memphis hard. For for knowingly playing an ineligible player you mentioned on the ESPN daily podcast. That Memphis was basically giving the NCAA the middle finger by playing him off all this time. What do you make of this change? I understand that it might be. Hey and Lincoln and ideal but it is a far cry from what they were doing before and what they are doing doing. Now what do you make of that change from Memphis perspective. Yeah the President President of Memphis came out and said that they were GonNa they were GonNA fight this and all that and clearly. They're going the normal route like the ball is back in the court now. So it's being now. This is being being determined according to NCWA rules and procedures. Now whether there have been has been a discussion as to. Here's where we see it coming out between Memphis listen to the NC double A.. But now this is this is like we talked about before it's a garden variety. NC Double A. Eligibility issue now Penny Hardaway isn't just is it just deemed a booster because this two thousand eight million dollar gift. There are a number of different ways that he qualifies as a booster and this is very unusual. Yeah no thumbing their nose at a little bit. Well I think they should have known all this stuff. Look I I felt that this was a pretty clear case as far as NCWA rules go and how they're applied and interpretations go. That doesn't mean that that that a wise man would not have have prevailed in court and it's not a no brainer that the case would have been removed to federal court as you know whether it's subject matter jurisdiction diversity jurisdiction. It's not. It's not a no brainer. It could've stayed in in in the state courts in Tennessee. And who knows how.
"wiseman" Discussed on Point of Inquiry
"Hello everybody welcome to another edition of point of inquiry I'm your host. Jim underdown for today's episode. I went all the way to London England to talk to a couple of big names in the world of skepticism and and critical thinking. I was over there for the presentation of the Richard Dawkins award to Ricky Gervais this year the center for inquiry and the Richard Dawkins Foundation splashed out for a big event in East London. I interviewed Richard Wiseman in Conway Hall. That's old British humanist building right off of Red Lion Square which has its own bit of history and central London. Richard Wiseman and I have been friends for about twenty years now. Richard is a psychologist and a magician and an author and many other things. He's written several books including rip it up fifty nine seconds. Check out his books. There well researched and very interesting one of my favorite stories with Wiseman is he. He actually broke the phone system and England during one of his experiments it was on. TV doing an experiment to see if people could tell if someone else was lying and they had to call in to vote which person was lying or or whatever it was but anyway they got so snowed under with phone calls that Broke the British phone system. So I'd have my admire him for that. Richard Wiseman is a huge figure and skepticism and science based information about paranormal beliefs. And just other ways we think he blends humor and groundbreaking breaking research in his presentations and books and is really a fantastic ally in the quest Cabrera in critical thinking to the masses. So I give you now from downtown London England my conversation with Richard. Wiseman you were here with Richard Wise Men at Conway Hall in Amazing. Yeah this is Alana history in this building a loss of history much which I don't know I think it's Monte Thirties. I think it gets back. Full that go back. Pull that maybe the decade before nineteen twenties. That's my feeling mouth full and it's safest is a free thought is humanism is. It's it's grapes can have many many times worry from what's your what's your early early history I'm from Luton in the UK. which is a city talent? I think about thirty miles. North of London was born bag. Go into magic very young and then joined the magic circle. I lied about my age. mid sixties joy tales about seventeen and then because magic. I got into psychology came to University College London here in London as the name suggests because it was the closest university to the magic circle. The bicycle degree went up to Edinburgh Edinburgh. Scotland to degree in parapsychology then came back down this end Z.. Invest Hof Cheer. I still am and now ooh years later. I'm a professor of psychology there and I've been voting sketch skepticism throughout the the whole kind of time. So you win it in psychology. Never really pitching yourself as having a practice and having no I went through ignorance so which is the best way that if any career actually elegy so I read it become a magic and it said that some that was a psychology could how to win friends and influence people. Is that Thou come Iki book which is actually a fantastic book. But he's nothing to do with experimental. Psychology is colleague us a really good writer to just kind of saying things I remember was names and smile and all this other stuff and talk about psychology and I was about sixteen. I think I read that Book Doc so I thought Oh ball experimental psychology university that that must be like the the comic book when there is nothing like you to its proper experiments stats and things like that. But that's what interested in psychology. And then I think even then ten onwards if I finally enough I went home to my parents house quite recently and look at my old books when I I was about ten or eleven and a skeptical stuff in there yet but Muda Triangle solved a on all this stuff so I was into that. That really young from a believer side are totally from now. He's always skeptical. It was like UFO's solved. We had a magazine. This country will be unexplained at every every month that explained within explain things otherwise. We could SUV. If you're a reader so as explained and that was the most sort of leverage thing I had with the rest of the noise wherever the phenomena flown was explain the underneath. So yeah that stuff young you hacksaw you hear so many stories about people in our world who Susan blackmore been the most prominent for example of people who have had serious beliefs and these e l was soon I got back a very long way and by never believed any of the Stafa dolphin parents rate is never went to church. That's we have a cub scout movement in this country for the Scouts in states I would think but our wants a quite tied up with belief in golden the Queen and so when I was asked to say that I'd left. The scouts. Full my own scout troop as a scout drew. Were Way ahead of the curve. Way I have the cover that there's any minute so it was a troop was the right. Love wasn't even group is just an individual so I did that and and then one day when I was I would think eighteen at soon. I've spoken about this and I turned on the television. We have I think would open university in this country. Country used to broadcast or lectures on TV and attorney and there was this person with shocking. Red Hair talking about the paranormal but the she was looking at a research was into. Why people believe this stuff and experience it and that may was this incredible moment? I thought wow he could look at the stuff and you don't have look with rich troops. I didn't think it was but the fact you can look experiences and beliefs an SU on TV so without sue. I wouldn't have gone along that pathway. Oh how about that. And and and never realized he had that connection with her. Yeah and that you could do serious study about this and that it would be accepted by the academic community and eventually publications like yeah. No you've written for skeptical. Inquirer magazine published law in a festival. Over the place published both sides sides divides of publishing the journal Psyche Research and skipped acquirer in psychology journals. As might my. PhD WAS UP IN EDINBURGH WITH BILL Morris who was a believer because he was running that the cuss that chair parapsychology and such down for years. As with all the parapsychologists really did believe I saw the word parapsychologist adjust which normally for the rest of us in the skeptical world. The antenna go like Oh boy here. We go trying to attach some sort of academic credibility ready to this crap. But you were it wasn't crappy you could learn it. You could study it in a way that would be legitimate incredibly. Yeah that's the pope was about. I mean he tossed away from the past tense but at both was a very nice guy. He's been around the block many times and so he knew a loss of mediums psychics with frauds. And that's why. He bought me into investigate that stuff. He's real interest was experimental parapsychology which is alleged into normally stick affects a very small. We have to get lots of people in doing card guessing or whatever it is and he wanted to run studies that were as well controlled as possible. As has some of the lessons learned through doing this study's fed directly into mainstream psychology. So some of the folks doing that parapsychology stuff on North pseudo-scientists a two old. They're they're doing fringe science because he's in the fringe area but trying to be as rigorous as possible. As I say some the lesson learned have been affected mainstream psychology so there there is also kind of barking mad stuff out there but there's also some people doing good stuff and there's just there's also stuff that looks like it's legitimate but it's poorly done academically. I mean we know that any any paper can be poorly written even if it ends up in the national news That doesn't mean it was well done in the first place and I mean can I -ssume that if Bob was doing these rigorous literacy tests that it's it's not going well for them in the paranormal believes this is. This is the thing in the results. oops that stuff. It's it's Kinda check it it's it's difficult. See how this procedure which is called Ganz fell which is essentially reduction procedure and the claim is that that can help Huby psychically sunny. Some experiment worked support. It neither believe it but it's it's it's pretty well conducted so right at the moment so my partners Caroline Wall to is current Kessler a festive of parapsychology. We will together to do some large-scale Studies so I have got one foot in that that camp they both bovine feet normally Aaron skepticism. It's strange stamps to have both feet and skeptcism one foot in the parapsychology cow. Make sure interesting life and quite difficult storms as well and then you've published books. I have ten eleven eleven lesson books accounts the far too many. What are your favorite? Everyone's as you that comes off. I I mean so i. I did about decade off skeptical stuff and then pod to investigate paranormal corona investigating mediums psychics and Gangsta Cycle. And all those those conventions and things and then in I think two thousand. I was trying onto page a book all about this book about the paranormal. My agent an I put this book out to all the publishing houses in London and no one was interested. And and then we have this kind of mop-up meeting and by chance. I said you know one of the things. I'm interested news ninety belief in the paranormal belief in luck while we touch wood cross fingers and he said well you doing I said well. We're looking at the thoughts and behaviors of lucky people. I'm lucky ones whether you could change your mindset to be lucky anyway. There's a book in that so we pitched it and that became luck factor. It sold all over the world that was about two thousand one two thousand and two and then since they are not equality and fifty nine seconds. Kids night's golden power normality. Most recently the follow books so yes been whole string of them since we run into people whose concept of luck I've run into. This is that it's like this cloud that comes in lands on certain people here and there What do you say? But that's the way it feels. I think we all know people who just seem to be very lucky. Through lifeless lucky chance opportunities other people seem very unlucky though the wherever they try in and I think that is in a sense an illusion. I think that we creating much of our own good and bad luck. By the way we think and behave here talking about luck in life so nothing that I have written. In terms of any intervention wreck societies will make you any luckier. When you go to Vegas? You're up against chumps lay. Ah You don't get to win the lottery because you've read the fact book will you might not systematically however when it comes to life whether it comes to opportunities who you meet what Projects you start and so on isn't charts and that was the stuff is interested in how you go people to be more lucky if you like a more positive what we with now cool mindset and so as soon studies into that was one of those people would be doing studies into the idea of self development self help vastly randomly assigning people to groups having them do the different interventions next two sizes and seeing results so that was block fact when it came out one of the things that stuck with me in that book with Oprah's very enjoyable degreed and was that lucky people. One of the conclusions was walkie. People will try things that occasionally make you look day. They enter lotteries. Maybe not so much you know big lotto tickets words one hundred and fifty million to one to win but if there's a door prize for something they actually fill out the piece of paper because they think they could win. It's an and that becomes a metaphor. Fook so the more people you talk to more like. You're going to have Komo. Steve Encounter the Baltic. She tried more like this. One's going to make you a million off. Efforts is and and so it is about that idea of creating and noticing pissing opportunities of acting. It is about being resilient when bad things happen. It's about being optimistic. To some extent about trusting intuition. It's older these things until he's a very early book into that genre now. It's quite crowded marketplace. But at the time it was this this kind of innovative type. Yeah so did Oprah's Oprah's the secret sort of is the Zette well. That was interesting because I think that kind comes out a little bit later and fifty nine right things which fifty nine seconds later book about things you can learn in less than a minute People misunderstand positive psychology psychology is about the things things you need to do to lead a happier better life. It isn't just about being relentlessly pulse of us. God our heads would explode exactly if you just sit at home hoping to win the lottery. That's not going to help. Anyone says it's not just this thing about.
"wiseman" Discussed on Pick the Brain
"Bring toys to their children, join them in their songs and learn their ways, and you will become familiar with these neighbors and your fear will go away. The second man saw the wisdom and these simple instructions and knew he would no longer fear the family who were his neighbors. They're in the cave so high in the mountains that nothing could live. The Wiseman turned the last pilgrim and asked if his fear. Oh, why span. I fear spiders. When I tried to sleep at night, I imagine spiders dropping from the ceiling and crawling upon my flesh and I cannot rest. Spiders said, the Wiseman, no shit. Why do you think I live way up here. Fear will get the worst of the best of us and peddlers influence count on that. If fear is cultivated. It will become stronger. If faith is cultivated, it will achieve mastery. Fear is whispered in our ears and shout in our faces. Faith must be fostered by the man or woman. You see every day in the mirror, the former forever snaps at our heels and our sign, asses and delays. Are course the ladder gets spur are booed yields to be wandering, stimulate our creativity and drive us forward fear or Fe, which will be our master..
"wiseman" Discussed on Pure Nonfiction: Inside Documentary Film
"I asked wiseman where he would have seen mooney versus foul i think at the boston public library uh or you know the busting into the boston of the cambridge rubbergloves i think was bust of a glove circulated documentaries even then and i think us are dare i think they circuit inch or somebody gave me a sixteen milk copy of it and uh i i'd seen some of the other drew films but i i thought no in terms of what my interest was they were a slightly uh there was there was added music and narration mixed in with observational style and i i i didn't particularly uh that that wasn't my cup of tea mean perfectly good technique if you like it i assad might cut a technique that song was wasn't of i was interested in even though i hadn't yet done anything i i preferred the uh alot i i don't much like the term observational either uh because that's much too passive it it to me i dunno with other people have a some association to immediate means sitting in a corner and just watching what's going on it eliminates all the different kinds of choices want us to make uh even during the shooting was unwell or not as explicit as the choices during the editing there are still a lot of choices to be made uh so that's why object to the world to observe a national i it's it's find to be because in the documentary fields i feel people are constantly debating um different terminology whether it's cinema verite or a observational or or the word documentary itself well it's all bullshit uh i mean what what wrong stronger the word movie i mean i think i make movies uh that's as good anonymous word is in a as exists uh and uh i i mean they're all these these phrases uh fly on the wall observational direct cinema as you say but i mean i i don't quite understand the need for them at mean don't you think there is a difference between writing a script in hiring actors to to play people for verses filming people who are acting out there reallife.
