Maybe 'Harry Potter' Isn't So Bad After All...

"Of a cult in Harry Potter is made up magic. It's not real. J. K. Rowling doesn't think that you can fly on a broomstick and play this modified game of soccer that they play in the movie. These are not, this isn't the real occult. There may be one exception in the last movie. They tried to contact the dead. It never really went anywhere. But generally, the kind of occult that's in Harry Potter is made up magic out of Rowling's mind. She doesn't believe it's really true. She just made it up according to her. And by the way, she's an Anglican Christian. I don't know if she's born again or not. No extra charge for this, but she has stood firm on the transgender. In any event, she says, look, I put magic in here because it gives the kids a kind of power they don't have, but the center of the story is not magic. The center of the story is human nature. And she says, Harry thinks he can fix everything by waving a wand. That's not true. Whether you can wave a wand or not, you have to deal with human nature. And that's what this whole story is about. Now, didn't Narnia osso have magic. Well, that was just my second point. You're way ahead of me. Narnia and Lord of the Rings, chronicles and RD and Lord of the Rings have magic in it too. In fact, in lord of the Riggs Gandalf is a wizard and so is Harry Potter. Why are we okay with Gandalf and Lord of the Rings, but not Harry Potter? The reason and this is where they'll say, okay, Narnia and Tolkien or Lewis and Tolkien had Christian arcs, but you're saying Harry Potter does too. Oh, yes, I'm saying Harry Potter. In fact, this is going to probably give you some negative emails. We argue in the book, Hollywood heroes that out of all the characters we cover and we cover a lot of characters in this book that arguably the person, the character that parallels Jesus more than any other in modern fiction is Harry Potter.

The Hidden Religion Behind Hollywood Heroes Like Iron Man

"Cinematic point of view and a spectator and audience point of view, if you extrapolate secular humanism, it's the most boring movie ever. Exactly. That's why I'm saying Charlie. I don't think the writers of Iron Man had Christianity in mind, but they knew that they're living in God's world, whether they believe in him or not, and they know that secular humanism, they know that following your heart, they know that being selfish is never going to motivate an audience or inspire an audience. What will inspire an audience is what Jesus did for us. And that is laying his life down for his friends. Actually, lane is life down for his enemies. Love knows greater. There's no greater love than to lay down your life for your Friends. Well, Jesus laid down his life for his enemies. That's us. And so Iron Man is interesting because it is kind of this idea, and it could be a Christ story, but it feels more like Paul. Right? I think Iron Man is more like us than say Captain America. Captain America doesn't need moral development. We need. Well, Captain America does, he's always righteous. He doesn't do anything wrong. Is that right? Yeah, you never have to worry about, you know, he's Captain America going to do the right thing. He's always going to do the right thing because he's Captain America. He's like Jesus. Tony Stark, on the other hand, is more like you and me. Tony Stark has issues, right? Tony Stark needs sanctification and he goes on this character development arc over several movies to where from where he is a selfish Playboy amoral arms dealer who is just in it for himself. Pure helium, right? Totally. To the point where he's going to say he has to save his strip club in his private jet. That's right. That's right. I

The Hidden Religious Themes Behind Superman

"Story is an interesting one. I don't know that one as well as Batman. But there is only one way to be able to basically stop Superman kryptonite and the story of Superman. What is the biblical, not The Batman versus Superman, but the biblical story? Well, Superman Superman is probably the biggest parallel to Jesus in virtually all the superheroes. It's interesting because Superman was actually nietzschean when it was written. It was actually written as a nihilist by the two guys from Cleveland. I can't remember their names. But so tell me, well, it turns out that Superman is sent here by a God of another world to save this world. He is the son of this God, jor el, I think his name is. And he stays incognito until the age of 33. As Clark Kent, right? But he's staying incognito so he can complete his mission of trying to save this world from evil, and then by the time he hits 33, then people start to realize, oh, this Clark Kent is really Superman. This Jesus is really God. So it's a parallel to the Christians of the messianic story. Yeah, the messianic story. And you find this in all of these superhero movies.

What on Earth Can a Christian Learn From Batman?

"Pick one out of the mix. So back then. Batman. What on earth could a Christian learn from Batman? Well, first of all, Batman has the best, I think most realistic view of human nature out there. Notice how Batman Charlie is always fighting in the dark. Why? Because where there's darkness, that's where people are going to go. Men love darkness rather than light. Nothing good happens after midnight they say, right? So Batman has to go after the bad guys at night and notice he never completely succeeds. He never says, okay, I can take a vacation now, Gotham is free of bad guys. Why is Gotham never free of bad guys? Because human nature is evil. You lock up one bad guy the next night you're going to have to lock up another. You're never going to create utopia by locking up bad guys because human nature is evil and Batman illustrates that better than any of the other series we look at.

Author Frank Turek Returns to Discuss New Book 'Hollywood Heroes'

"Everybody, welcome to this episode of the Charlie Kirk show back by popular demand is a great patriot and incredibly gifted communicator and someone who I'm honored to call a friend, Frank turret, Frank, welcome back. Charlie always great being with you brother. But we're here today to talk about your new book and really go into depth into what you put here with your son Zach called Hollywood heroes. Tell us about your book. Well, first of all, let's start out by saying that Hollywood puts out a lot of garbage, right? But notice Charlie that when they put out a blockbuster, maybe haven't noticed, maybe the people out there have are having. When they put out a blockbuster, it's actually to a large extent stolen from the greatest story ever told. That when you look at the fantasy and superhero movies out there, Captain America, Iron Man, Lord of the Rings, Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Star Wars, these kind of movies, Charlie. They all have elements of the Christian story in them. And that's why they resonate. They resonate because these people are living in God's world, whether they're Christians or not, and what resonates is sacrifice. That's what resonates. And so these movies, my son is just an amazing movie buff. He's also in the air force, by the way. We went through these movies and we pulled out how so many of them paralleled the Christian story and how you can learn biblical life lessons and you can learn really the story of reality, which is the Christian story by watching these superhero and fantasy movies.

"Line, we got former active attorney general Matt winner, good friend of mine, got to know him a lot. We sort of traded books. He's been in my books. But Matt, it is good to have you on how you been today. I'm doing awesome. My friend, how are you? Happy Independence Day. Hey man, happy independence. It's good to celebrate it, isn't it? You know. We have the best country in the world. Well, and we just always need to remember the Patriots that gave the ultimate sacrifice or were willing to give the ultimate sacrifice. Not only to secure our liberty, but also to defend it for the last almost 250 years. It's really a celebration of just what makes America great, I think. Oh, I agree with you completely and looking at it. But I want to turn my attention, of course, we've had a, I think, and I said it in the first segment today. The left is calling a judicial activism. We're simply calling it back to reality and interpreting interpreting the law in a constitutional. I mean, what we're seeing out there right now is that it reminds me of the scene from The Wizard of Oz, the liberals. I don't think it's amazing because actual real law. But I want you to respond to this. I mean, what bothers me about this though is the president has been overseas. He's been to G 7. Whatever, but he's been there. But then when he had the opportunity when he starts talking about it, he actually degrades our court on a world stage. I want you to listen to this and I want to get your comments on this. I'm joined by a group of democratic governors. We work closely to protect women's rights after this tragic reversal of roe V wade. The terrible extreme decision in my view, upending lives and impacting on the health and safety of millions of women. And I share the public outrage at this extremist court that's committed to moving America backwards. And now Matt, come on. I mean, he said this day, but he said it on world stage. Tell me, what is this court extremist, except they didn't know what they want. No, I mean, I think this restores constitutional jurisprudence closer to the constitution. And I've never, you know, the Democrats are always talking about democracy, right? They're always like, we're a democracy. We're actually we're a constitutional republic, but let's not quibble. Ultimately, the people are sovereign. And this opinion restored the power of this issue to the people and to the

"They will come a time on the Planet Earth. When science and technology will be long forgotten. When humanity will rise from the ashes of nuclear Holocaust, when wizards will rule the world, 20th Century Fox presents wizards. A futuristic fantasy epic born in the mind of Ralph bakshi, the master of animated magic. It is the story of two brothers, avatar, and Blackpool. Powerful wizards. And mortal enemies from the day they were born. Avatar, the good, who rules the peaceful kingdom of Monte garde with wisdom. Science and technology were outlawed millions of years ago. And magic. Black wolf, the future Führer. Attention he holds. Who rediscovers the ancient secrets of propaganda? Technology. And war. And sends out his muted armies in a reign of unimaginable terror. In wizards, you will also meet the lovely princess Eleanor. The loyal elf weehawk. And peace, black wolf's evil robot henchman, who is transformed into an avenging instrument of justice. Wizards is a Tolkien world of fairies and elves, sorcerers. And demons. You shot 10 million years from now. Against strange and huge panoramic settings. And it is more fantastic. More enchanting..

Karine Jean-Pierre's 'Hits' When Talking About Donald Trump

"I saw Montage last night on Tucker Carlson's show. Of Kareem Jean Pierre. She's made a number of cable news appearances all, of course, on MSNBC and CNN and left leaning networks. Listen to the hits, condensed in one 62nd Montage of the brand new White House press secretary. Donald Trump is running a racist campaign. The grand wizard of the birther movement, which birtherism is inherently racist. By the way, he's a racist and a bigot, which we are already new. Walks like a racist, talks like a racist, acts like a racist. It is a racist. And we saw all these awful voter suppression laws, which is really racism, just across the country. And we have a racist president in The White House. Who really pushes his racism like a peacock, because I'll say this, we knew Donald Trump was a racist. I wanted to ask you just change the topic for just a quick second about Donald Trump's racist tweets. The systemic racism and how that has affected our country. Donald Trump is the most outwardly racist president that we have seen in generations. This country needs to start talking about uprooting institutional racism. Fox News was racist before coronavirus. They are racist during the coronavirus, Fox News will be racist after the coronavirus. That's my favorite clip. Fox News was racist before the coronavirus during the coronavirus and post coronavirus. Now, according to her network that she used to work for, coronavirus had been going anywhere, it surging, and we all should be terrified. More on that in just a moment.

Frank Turek Describes How 'Lord of the Rings' Points to God

"Let's talk about Lord of the Rings. Have you seen lord of the things? I haven't seen it. But the orcs scared me. So I was my face was in the cushions for most. The orcs are like the wicked witch and Wizard of Oz, right? Yeah, you don't want to. But think about the biggest heroes in Lord of the Rings are the weakest characters. I mean, Sam and Frodo are three foot hobbits who would rather stay in the Shire eat 7 meals a day and drink beer. They're not the kind of people that are going to save middle earth from Sauron. They're just not going to do it, but they're the ones that do it. Why? Because Tolkien being a Christian said, when you're weak, you are strong. And so Sam and Frodo had to had to rely on others to help them in order to pull off the unthinkable that they were going to get through more door and put the ring in the volcano and all that. And somehow they did it because when they were weak, they relied on others. Well, I guess I should say, I'm not surprised that J.R.R. Tolkien would write this epic fantasy that would point to God. But it's worth talking about that more and then talking about the movies, the stories that were not written by Tolkien, which is, to me, it's even more fascinating because he got this stuff as he was doing it. I think a lot of these Hollywood screenwriters, they don't have a clue that when you tell a good story, you kind of can't help point to

Elon Musk Accused of Being an Oligarch

"There are a lot of folks that are very angry right now, very angry that Elon Musk bought the company. You have employees voicing their concerns, they're worried about their future, of course. You've got media companies that are voicing their concerns. They too are worried about their future and how they fit into all this. Let me share with you how The Hollywood Reporter is casting the story. And I quote, Elon Musk is Twitter's new ruler. Interesting choice of words there, ruler. Expect grand plans and chaos ahead, the Tesla mogul doesn't care about making money with the platform. Instead, he gets his chance to play wizard and ban bots authenticate users and create his version of free speech utopia. Again, interesting choice of words, given that they're going with ruler, it's kind of in line with what former U.S. secretary of labor Robert Reich was saying about Elon Musk, accusing him of being an oligarch because he's been so successful. I mean, I find that quite troubling, considering the guy immigrated here to the United States of America created an industry from scratch, taking on, by the way, the auto giants, the oil giants, those industries that someone like Robert Reich, you would think would typically despise, and he became the richest man in the world by doing so. Why? Because that is a testament to what we are as a country. This is America, right? Used to be anyway. And I think Elon Musk gets the sense that increasingly if you do not preserve certain freedoms, including that First Amendment freedom, you run the risk that you won't have the same opportunities in the future.

Not enough? No. He may work for another company, but he is the great one. He is a radio giant. His name is mock Levin. And this account election wizard said the following about this clip, play clip. There are no nukes there. There's been a phony story about American BioTech centers there to develop weapons and so forth. And of course, the Putin wing of the Republican Party and the Putin wing of the media and the Putin wing of the Democrat party, they're all over it. Now those are all Soviet locations that the United States is located has been trying to deal with. We're not developing biochemical weapons in the Ukraine, what is it about these so called American firsters in the end who are really American masters. If you think about it, this account has 300,000 followers. Election wizard on Twitter. And tweeted this. Holy cow, it's true. Mark Levin actually parroted Mitt Romney's debunked talking points about the U.S. backed bio labs in Ukraine. What happened to the great one? Nothing. You cracked in. Unless you're a Putin puppet, which is worse. He spoke the truth. About the bio labs.

"Been no. The answer has been no. Yeah, and I mean, you look at scouts and anonymous GMs in front office people around the league, they'll even say like, okay, we didn't think it would work, but we didn't think it would be this bad. And again, the Lake 'cause I've shown, again, when they play the hardest, they all, again, just buy me a game where they play the hardest and they didn't win. And lately, like you said, they're Marge of error. It's just too small to not play with effort in a game to try to win. And again, tonight, I don't think Russ played with enough effort and I think him Missy a lot of those labs kind of affected his effort and just energy as a whole. So yeah. Red cloud said imagine Russ on the second unit full time, he'd be unstoppable there, no second unit in the NBA can handle his explosion of energy, Lakers would have offensive consistency. You would think that that wasn't the case. We saw it. A stretch at the end of the third, LeBron goes out, Russ is in there. Wizards started catching up. Got pretty bad for a bit there. Russ started taking Dirk one legged fadeaway banks. Bank shots. Yeah. And again, I don't mean to pile on Westbrook too much. This wasn't a good game for him, but I'm saying that that line of thought, it makes sense. Yeah, hey, run west with a second unit, and LeBron's not in. Russ, here's the ball. Go. That was part of the idea coming in. Was finally the Lakers aren't going to fall to pieces when the bronze off the floor because Russell Westbrook can run the offense. It hasn't always worked out that way. And again, it does make sense when you look at things on paper. It should work. But we've seen numerous occasions this season where Russ has had the chance to go on his own and it hasn't worked. It hasn't. It's worked sometimes. But yeah. Look at the hornets game. There's been cases where it's worked, but I'm glad you brought up that stretch to start the fourth quarter where I mean, we were on the live broadcast saying, okay, Frank, call timeout, please. Because Russ was just shooting bad shots. He wasn't being locked in defensively. And again, we're not here to pile on Ross or whatever he has been that good this season, but it just wasn't a good game for him. And that's really as bare knowledge you could say or whatever. It was a good rest of Westbrook again. And you can honestly leave it at that without having to go too deep into it. This is an interesting one. Question says, would you do Russell Westbrook for kristaps porzingis and fillers? The wizards fan base was one fan base that I found that was not opposed to bringing back Russell Westbrook. Now, most of the scenarios, this was a bot out wrestle Westbrook. They were okay with bringing him back in. But he did have some success there last year. I don't think the wizards want to move on from porzingis just yet. But porzingis and stuff, whatever those just assume neutral value contracts..

"The Celtics back to 500. Toppling the wizards. One 1687, Jimmy it's hard. It's hard to say anything bad here because this was pretty complete game and obviously no, but I mean, that's not what we're looking for, Jimmy, you and I are captain positive from the bubble, okay? For sure. Absolutely. We had nascent like it is. When they play well, they play well, when they play poorly, they play poorly. We call it they stay or Bobby didn't like the Celtics back when we started this show. But I just want to do the show tonight because Tatum dropped 51. He's not going to show up. No, he's bummed out. He can't go to his agenda. Right. But I mean, crap, you know, it's like we were kind of joking last game. It's about as easy as, you know, like the difference between them being a good team and a bad team or at least an above 500 team or a team and about the 6 spot right now is just Tatum playing at his average, you know? You don't need 50 point Tatum. You need Tatum who's even Tatum slightly below average of shooting splits and we said this exact thing last game. Tatum's shooting splits 45 36 right now. They'd be fine. He's just, he's 40, 30. And he has too many ice cold games. And then he just came out and it was like a possessed human tonight. I totally different dude. You don't get it. I don't get it. You know, I mean, we've seen it. He's had a couple of these this year, just so few of them. So like, if it's so frustrating, though, right? Because you know what he's capable of. Has anybody have more like aggressive swings than this guy? Well, this year, they're all capable of dropping 50, but then he will go stretches where he literally can't hit a shot. And you end up with, you know, load low teens or less points wise and complete liability. Jimmy, the people in your people in your room are happy that the rams just missed a field goal. Yeah, there's a bit of a, I'm not gonna say it's a party there's a gathering going on downstairs and people are it's funny. And they should be I expected Jimmy that the chat would be like C Tatum awesome, which would be fine. This is absolutely your beat your chest or the game if you're a Tatum backer all the time. Right now I'm seeing more people like it's a fluke left ten points next game. It's the bike. It might be the bike. Listen, is this a fluke? No, it's not a fluke. We know enough about Jason tannen, where we clearly not. When he drops 50, it's not a fluke. It's more of a fluke what we've seen this season. This season feels like based on it's hard to see an entire season of fluke, but it is an outlier. It does feel a lot of these games this year are uncharacteristic of what we know TM's capable of. And that's why the frustration has set in this season. And that's why we said that without Tatum being Tatum, this is what you're looking at. Because look at the bench tonight, the bench, we had two guys that contributed in any way, shape or form tonight on the bench. So it just goes back to what we said. If Tatum is not giving you minimum a minus performance on a given night, it's looking at a loss..

"The three or three and a four whatever but but magic was the point guard. So you know i. It's just a matter of the team. He went to at that point in time. You know. I think you know as as you said. Just put these guys up there. As the greatest generation of all time and he was in that realm. You know if. I could go down and made a reference to david thompson. Don and i are old enough to remember watching a lot of david thompson and and i saw thought he was the most fascinating basketball player to watch of the late. Seventy mid to late seventies in college especially his basket. His professional crew was pretty good but he got hurt and it didn't pan out as a lot of thought and he had some drug problems as well. I look. I look at landes. Sort of a combination of of a david thompson to julius irving. You had david thompson athleticism. You had julius erving's creativity offensive creativity. Neither neither of whom. I recall having as good a shot as len did but the impact they had as as offensive minded players and david thompson was only six four so but he he had a from what i recall a little bit of a better jumping ability than lend lend had a forty four inch. Vertical leah detail. David thompson's was forty. I think he was forty eight. A recall hearing something like that as well. So thompson didn't have the body that that bias head buy shrimp. Or i don't think he had the intensity that is at so i look at them. Look at thompson in irving then you have bias a combination of those i. I'm just old enough to remember David thompson i think david thompson for me and my lifetime is the greatest college basketball player i've ever watched but it's funny when i go back and watch youtube videos or games like they've got the seventy four. Acc final as it was called by jim. Thacker and packer. You know that whole games available on youtube and it's interesting to watch you know and and match up your memory with the uae. What actually happened thompson was brilliant. There's no doubt he was not a great ball handler. Either and back then. There wasn't a lot of defense played. I think he Don said this when talking about vulcan and what he said len had a mean streak a competitive mean streak that and that was just and was jordan-esque. And i think that's one of the reasons he would've been ultimately combined with the talent and all time great. I remember some of those moments. His last home game against virginia in olden polynice and he took a ball that pollens threw up there and threw it into the fifth row screaming. Gimme that shit as loud as he could And he threw it. And i'll i was right to sort of in that arena that day. I'll never forget that. And here's the one thing that kills me about about biases college career. They never got past the sweet sixteen. You know as a freshman. They got around to thirty two because he hit a buzzer beater against ut chattanooga's a freshman and then obviously. He had the coming out party in the acc. Tournament is a sophomore but they lost to in illinois team that i think they were better than the killer. Game for me is when they lost villanova. Who would go on and win the national championship in eighty five that year on that incredible magical run maryland was better team than villanova bias. Had and i think this is true. I think it was the worst game of his career and they still only lost by a point. I think he ended up like four for seventeen from the floor. You know didn't even reach double figures is a score and they still lost by like a point to you. Know ed. Pinkney dwayne mcclain and harold pressley and gary mclain in that that that villanova team That went on to win the national championship. It just sucks that he never got to profile And get the exposure. He would have had as a college player in the final four. You know the their final loss against unlv. He was brilliant in but they blew like a an eight point. Second half lead and you know a lot of people say well. You know that's lefty. They always had talent and always came up short I love lefty. And i think. Sometimes he's underrated as a coach and overrated as recruiter. That's beyond the point. I wish she had had the tournament success that some of the greatest players in history had i think he'd be i think he would be thought of and ranked much higher as an all time. Great college player if he had had the tournament success. You talk about the When they lost villanovan eighty-five let's talk a little bit more about when they lost. Unlv and you said he had a. He had a strong game there. A recently watched this game and i was actually surprised at how poorly he played in the first half. He was missing shots. He wasn't defending very. What's something seemed wrong. He was just off in the first but the second half on fire and he took that team. He took that team. He tried to bring the team back on his own. The last four or five minutes. I think he scored the last ten or twelve points. So you see you saw sort of what he could do in those last four or five minutes of that game. How dominant player. He could be if he wanted to be. And it's unfortunate. I think donkin even attest to this at sixteen he just didn't have the supporting cast of players to really to really take that vaccine there any further than that correct on that team actually started. I think oh in five or six in the acc right and and really had climbed back. i mean one of the greatest lines that left the ever delivered to me was right before they played the virginia game. That you referenced. The police game I talked to. I talked to dick schultz. Who was the virginia. And who was the Who is the head of the basketball committee the ncaa. And i said this maryland half because they were under five hundred they finished six and eight right in the acc. They were five and eight. I said do. They have to beat virginia to to get you to really get themselves even position to. I don't even know if they talked about the bubble in those days. I don't know i remember. They did i remember. They needed that and they probably needed. That quarterfinal game. Acc tournament where they be carolina again. Line was he said. And i'll turn it. They might best lefties. I asked him. If i said dick schultz said that you guys have to win. And he said who's dick scholtz. What does he know. And i said. Well he's he's ahead of the committee he said well. If we don't get in it'll be the biggest rip bosses louisiana purchase but speaking to that talent you know. He has some good players on that team. You know keep gatlin was a good college plants. He was Derek lewis great. Shot time he was a sophomore and was a very serviceable big man. At six seven one ninety five is still be all time leading shop locker. John johnson who was a freshman. He was a rotation player speedy jones. They had some good players. You know and. I think it goes back to what you said about. Lefty lefty has some great unfortunately for left his best teams were when there was only one course. One came from the acc going to the ncaa tournament and of course. His best teams corresponded with the with. David thompson's you talked about thompson. Tommy burleson was the star that eight of that game. Seventy thirty eight thirty eight points. You know tau was the point. Guard that corresponded. They went one year where nc state couldn't because they were on probation so those those are the teams that if they had gone to the ncaa tournament with mcmillan. And elmore and lucas and moe howard and then brad davis and those players That that's when they could have won a national championship for lefty. Oh yeah no look i think. One of the biggest maryland basketball and the washington football team have been my one one a put them in any order. You want for my entire life in terms of rooting interest. And i think that nothing was a bigger mess for college basketball than not having lefty make it to one final four and what a show that would have been in the week leading up to it at cetera. And you're right. I mean the seventy four team. It was the second best team in the country. And they didn't get to go to the tournament. The seventy-three team that lost nc state in the acc finals but ac but state was on probation. Did make it to the elite eight loss to providence. And then the three guard line up with lucas. Howard and brad davis made it to the elite eight after mcmillan and Elmore graduated and they got blown out by louisville. He you know he was close and then the team that you mentioned. I think you're right. I think dave was indicating it. There were some good players on that team..

"Had one gram of crack cocaine. And you had one hundred grams of powder cocaine. That's one hundred one disparity you got the same mandatory minimum sentence of five years. They reduced that to eighteen to one so get one gram of crack eighteen grams of powder. It's it's it's the same tournament of they also gave judges. Previously judges could did not have any discretion to change the sentence they had to abide by the law. The fair sentencing act allow judges to have some discretionary decision making no like i want to reduce that because this is too severe and also they reduced sentences retroactively to people who were in prison the fair. The step back tried to take a few more steps than that and it's really doesn't have the teeth that the fair sentencing act has done yet. They're still questions about if it's really going to do what it was supposed to do. We need. We need a little more time to see how that plays out. So it's it's a continuous process and there are groups. That are still trying to fight for that. Aren't let's go to len bias and have the basketball discussion which you know to be fair. A lot of people. Listening to this podcast. Specially the maryland people but college basketball fans. In general we have these conversations all the time those of us of a certain age Certainly you know the what if What if don he had lived. What if he had survived that night and lived. How much would it have changed from a basketball standpoint maryland. The celtics him. And what would you know. What kind of player would have become. I'm sure you've thought about this. And had these conversations over the years. What are your thoughts on that. Let me go back to nineteen eighty. Six eighty five eighty six season. That was my first year at the sun covering maryland basketball. I heard of len bias. I didn't i you know. I i knew he was a great player in the acc. I just finished covering the big east in primarily saint. John's and covered. Chris mullin's entire career. And at that point. Chris mullin was the best basketball player. I had covered. You know on a regular basis. And i showed up in college park and i was just. I was just floored by the talent. This guy had. I said you know. Chris mullin a nice player. Obviously a hall of famer. This guy was at a different level. And and i had covered jordan You know a bit covered the olympics in eighty four. I'd covered that my first final four one thousand nine hundred eighty two. I gotten to know michael a little bit over those years Had spent some time down in chapel hill. So i knew who he was being compared to and and as i wrote on the twenty th anniversary of his death i spoke to. I spoke to jam bulk who was a gm of the celtics at the time and we spoke to recently for the for the podcast. Pose the question you know. Would he have been michael jordan's rival and and obviously from his perspective of course but everybody else agreed. Jay bilas was put that piece and and going back to Microsoft's these line about the two best players. He ever coached against at do where michael jordan and and len bias and ralph sampson wasn't even in that conversation and he was. I think Two or three time while. Acc player now. This guy. I mean he if he had gone to the celtics and that was the other thing. How often does the number two pick in the team in the draft. Go to the defending world champions he would have impacted the nba. He wouldn't have had the pressure. That that that michael had to rebuild and save that friend. You know you know. Take take the leadership as a rookie. Your second year player with the bulls because bird was still there. Mikhail was still their parish. Was still there dennis. Johnston danny ainge go down the list. He would have been able to evolve as a superstar and and he would have been that clare. Because i mean he came out of college with a better game a more well rounded offensive game than michael jordan. It's hard to you know for those who have never saw imply. Just just look at you know. Go on youtube and and look at this guy. He had the most picturesque jump. Shot was six foot eight. I said he was six foot eight. David thompson i mean. That's how beautiful his jump shot was s icke was and and and you know one of the things that jan volk said is he played with a little meanness they like that not like the attitude he played he would have been a perfect celtic. And you know he would have started in the role of the six man. That's a big thing in boston. And then he would evolved. John havlicek dave and others into the star of the team and he would have changed the landscape of the nba. Because the not not only the detroit. Pistons have tougher road in the bad boys but who knows where the bulls would have been. Who knows where. Jordan would been if the boston celtics still the boston celtics as opposed to not only losing len bias but a few years later losing having the tragic death of reggie lewis and they never recovered took twenty years to recover. So it's it's clearly. He would have been one of the best play one of the best players of his generation and he was he would have been the rival that jordan never had in. That's that's what they talk about. It byrd had magic. And and and michael did not have really arrival. Toby was too young and other guys. Were too old yet so funny. Because we've we've all had these conversations with so many different people and i've done it on the air and you guys have done it in writing over the years. I've always made this comparison with len or as lefty would say leonard I think he was more dominique wilkins than he was. Michael jordan and. I remember many for the many years that i had the good fortune of working in the same. You know space is coach thompson. Who did the show following my show for. You know eight years and we talked all the time in our bullpen at the station about a lot of things and i remember him coming to be in saying. That's the comp. it's not michael you know. Dominique was the comp. First of all you. Michael was to go to guard you know. Lend bias was was a forward now. Len len leonard was a better shooter as a college play players. You said he was. He had one of the prettiest jump shots in the history of the of the college game and he shot at such a height Would that it was unblock but he was not the ball handler That jordan was in. I thought he would be more of sort of the human highlight reel. That neak was. But i know people short shrift. I think dominique wilkins and what a great all around player he was. I mean at forty seven against the celtics in his seventh and deciding game. So i i think that he would have been one of the all time. Nba greats. but. I always thought his cop was more wilkins not jordan. What do you guys think about that. I think you. I think the comparison to wilkins is also i mean. He was a human highlight zone but he was he was built. More like karl malone maybe not as big but but you know because of his size. There is really no calm. You know. there's nobody who played at that size at that point who who could shoot like that. You know who who who could be getting the air like that you know. Dominique wilkins was from what i remember more. You know he was more wiry not not not a not a not a big muscular guy You know and. I don't think i think you're right about jordan. They played different positions. But but i think just the the rivalry in the sense that you know burden. Magic really didn't place same position either. Bird was it was..

"Yeah kind of all over the place. There's one other quote from him on on the ryan. Fitzpatrick taylor heineke thing. Quote both ryan and taylor or two guys that are very vital very important us going forward so we'll be watching both those guys in watching their progress very very closely. I think it's going to be a very competitive battle. I think both guys want to be the guy that's going to be important to us as we go forward closed quote. So why do this. Why why tell kyle alan. You're out. I don't know i don't know either. I mean the guy. He traded for the guy who he said at the end of last year. That carlyle could have done the same thing that out. Swift it okay. Now he's not even not even asked about it. He said it he wasn't even asked he offered that up. Psa doesn't make sense. Look one of the things he said. And i'm paraphrasing here last week. Was he made a mistake last year. Not making it more of a competition. Right and i still think a lot of that was just because he didn't think much of the team going into next year and was fine with trying to find out whether haskins had anything to him and so but he has expressed recently some regret. And almost you know for all intents and purposes given what was available to him at the time almost conceded that if there had been a competition kyle alan would have won the competition and been the starting quarterback. And that's deductive reasoning. Why because when he did bench. Dwayne haskins kyle allen was the starter after week four. Now kyle allen. Was you know that you as status and eight hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth of salary and they had to go out and sign taylor heineke to a slightly different deal with a little bit more money but it's still not like big money. It's not money you couldn't get out of. I don't believe that there's actually a legitimate. Starting quarterback competition is one hundred percent. Believe that he will want everybody including his own players to believe that. They're in competition but ryan fitzpatrick was acquired. Matt stafford was attempted to be traded for and anybody else that you believe that they were interested in sam darnold. Derek carr you know the list goes on and on because they felt like they needed a starting quarterback and this was long after taylor heineke had gone. You know toe to toe with tom. Brady so i i guess. I am surprised that he in this interview. Basically dismissed kyle allen. And i don't know the answer to why right. There could be all kinds of coaching motivations here behind the scenes that we don't know about. I'm not gonna speculate what they are but I mean i don't think this was just of thoughtless thrown out comment. I think he thought it through and had a reason for saying what he said. Whatever that is yes yes. Perhaps he said it because it's hard to really buy that there would be a three way starting competition but it's easy but it's easier to buy that there's a two man competition for the starting position. I don't know. I don't know. I how i mean unless somebody's pawn kyle allen inside and said. Don't worry about what you read a west that's happening. He's got to be a little bit pissed by the way as we've been sitting here just wants you to know that. I did confirm That tommy sheppard and j writer friends. So i can't remember who told me that. I think it was. Tommy sheppard at some point of view in the last year and a half But i just couldn't remember. But i i reached out to a couple of people who would know and got back from everybody Yes they are friends. So i love what you brought to the show today. Love it 'cause i know you got it from somewhere or you wouldn't have said it and i think it would be really interesting. If wright was the wizards coach really interesting light things up baby. Okay would so the other thing i wanted to talk about is the thing that you e mailed to me Late last night. Which was this story. That andrew marshon from the new york post wrote about robert griffin the thirds audition for both fox and espn as an nfl analyst. Now for those of you. That don't know his current status. He got released by the baltimore ravens. He's out there not on any roster there was some speculation potentially philadelphia might sign him to backup jalen hurts they. Now have both joe. Flacco and nick mullins on the roster a mullins being the san francisco quarterback and they got rid of him when they drafted him trae lance so nobody really seems to have any interest in robert griffin the third. There's always the possibility you get a bunch of quarterback's hurt and training camp and griffin gets another shot. I think you know. And i remember saying it in at the time when he got that. Start because Lamar jackson was hurt against the steelers on that wednesday game because of all the cova and the different scheduling and it was on like in the middle of the day on a wednesday which was just weird This is his chance. You know this is it. And he was horrible Heath he threw for thirty three yards in the game and then got hurt late in the game. Of course he did but when he on that bleacher report draft special when he took those shots at kirk cousins after the vikings drafted callan monde. I said the next day. This dude can be really good at this. If he's fearless. If he's not afraid to be constructively critical he could be excellent as an nfl analyst college football analyst. In addition to. I think he'd be you know. I think he'd have a career in politics if he if you wanted to to go that route but there's no doubt that. Rg three is bright That he's got that he is charismatic. He's a phenomenal communicator. And according to andrew marchant at the new york post He had an all time audition for both fox and espn Quote robert griffin. The third is emerged as a top target for both. Espn and fox football Tv free agency. Espn is upped. Its offer after fox showed heavy interest in griffin as an nfl and college football analyst. Now both networks are waiting to see whether griffin will try to play again or retire from the nfl to move into tv even if griffin does does decide to play tv will be waiting for him when he ultimately retires griffin really excelled in his auditions for espn and fox sources from both networks. Say they were blown away by griffin. Some said griffin's was among the top tryouts. They have ever viewed..

I did ask him if a college coach was a possibility. Said yes in an international coaches as well And so i'm interested in. You know not. I wasn't asking you to tell me. I didn't mean to ask you anyway to tell were you. Were you got that from. I just think that it it. It's an interesting thing because jay writes been rumored for nba jobs before now personally. I think it'd be an absolute fool to come coach in the nba. He has one of the all time. Great setups at villanova. John eline i think made a major mistake a few years ago when he left to go coach. The cleveland cavaliers. Now i think he's older and even much older than j. right. you know. Jay wright certainly looks a lot younger years older. I think you're probably right. And i just thought that was a mistake. He had built a powerhouse at michigan. Played into chino finals and final fours and lost one of them to to jay. Right got blown out in that championship. Game a few years ago j. Right but i i don't know man like i always think the same thing. If you haven't established situation at a pow like he is turned villanova into not a blue blood. Okay and that is for my good friend. Carlos molina who went to villanova and my friend. Mike carberry and many others Who i know Live for villanova basketball and believe that. Villanova has ascended to a blueblood in recent years there not a blueblood but they are on the top line of the next tier and he. He'll go when he wants to go. There will never ever be a time. In which jay wright will be in trouble at villanova. There wasn't time where there was a time when he was in trouble at villanova. That's the irony by jay wright. Know right you know when they couldn't get out of the second round there for a few years all the villanova people wanted change and now that he's won two titles you know to within three years He's the greatest ever in their blueblood pro program. But i just think jay right in any of these guys that have the setup and by the way. They're getting paid. What it. It's not like the money's gonna be that different. It might be a little bit different. But it's not a lot different. And i know you don't have to recruit which you know for a lot of these coaches is the biggest pain in the ass of the job but villanova's almost recruiting on. Its own right now. Not that they're kentucky or carolina. Duke but they get a lot of players based on reputation and based on a lot of people looking at j. right as a great coach as a smooth guy. Communicator the whole thing. But i i don't see like you're right. Look if he didn't take the philly job last year Whereas i understand you know he was the number one candidate With the talent that they have in his home in the town where he's working. I don't think he's coming to washington to coach. So i mean you know that's just pie in the sky but that would that would be the number one guy on the list after that I don't i don't know i mean it's interesting. You know. I know tommy Made his bones with his international scouting And his international connection. Yes i don't know anything about international coaches so i don't know if there's Who was the guy who got hired in cleveland. I'm blanking on the name but that's not going and it didn't. It didn't last long with lebron. Right so i don't know how if there's any international coaches out there and You know. I mean becky having I think she's gonna wind up taking over for pop if she if she coaches anywhere in the nba. I think she'll wind up staying in san antonio so i don't think she's she's become here too. I don't know who the next coach is going to be. But but they're not gonna be in a good situation unless they can trade bradley beal get a bunch of lottery picks for him and start over again this right now. You're looking at a treading water situation all over again. No doubt your your your. This is the league. And it's the one. The biggest disparity In terms of the importance of talent over coaching it. There no other league comes. If you don't have the talent doesn't matter how great the coaches i mean. You've seen some really good jobs. Done by guys in recent years and spoelstra incredible job with miami last year. Jimmy butler was playing at a pretty high level I it's really hard no matter how. Great the coaches and by the way. That's what these college coaches who've come to the nba. Including brad stevens. You know have sort of realize it's just much harder like you. Your impact on the final result of the game is less than it is in college basketball. And it's less than it is in any other sport of the major sports he will. It just isn't as significant. You're not a single. You're more of a people manager and making sure that you know you got the right players in the right mix in you're communicating and they like you in respect to you and they play well together but you have to have the talent or doesn't work i.

"Been talking about the last seven weeks on the podcasts. Many of you have been following along. I've been seeing some of your tweets and some of your guesses on who killed aaron on maravilla town starring kate winslet The finale was sunday night You watched it. I think yesterday. Did you think you know we watched this woman. Kate winslet's Maher mar spit nails for six episodes. I mean she was. Just i just angry. You know not compassionate the series and then in the series finale. She turns into mr rogers. She didn't turn into mr rogers pretty much. She offered a shoulder to cry on anyone who would listen to her who anyone who needed it in the last episode. I thought that was ridiculous. That's the character jump. What was i thought was ridiculous. Well because she was coming to grips with the fact that she had not grieved over her son suicide. I get that. I just seem. I think it would be a more casual to go from zero. the sixty. it wasn't zero to sixty. Well i think it was. I don't know i mean. Even even as she tried to comfort it wasn't even comfort with her sons The mother of her grandson. I mean that wasn't like the the warmest or cuddly est of of of scenes. Even though she understood that she was trying She admitted that she was happy that she was going to be able to keep her grandson. I actually thought there was room for her to be even warmer in that final episode on a. But but anyway what did you. So you didn't like the finale. I'm guessing no wasn't that kotla. I'm not as excited about the series as everybody else seems. I know you know you know. Can we discuss the who done it. You wanna yeah. We'll just spoiler alert right now. We're going gonna talk about the finale of the show if you haven't watched it yet Then you'll want to tune out right now And if you haven't watched the show but you're planning on it because you heard so much about it and it really did get an incredible attention This show did Then you may want to tune out right now as well and with that We will talk about the twist in the final episode and neither one of us. Had you know who had it. Stephen king had it stephen king a couple of hours before the final episode had that ryan all right the twelve eleven or twelve year. Old son of lor and john going to be the murderer. You know he wasn't even on the board as a in terms of being able to bet on him But it was he. For whatever reason stephen king got it. We never even talked about him. I chill because that's because he was such an obscure calendar but he really wasn't he was he was lighting. He was hiding his father's secret and we knew that it was a very young then it seemed to be more than just infidelity. To may the fact that it degenerated into a who done it i think it automatically loses interest in may it reminded me of who shot. Jr their in the big dallas controversy of the eighties. I need more than a. Who done it. I watch eddie any hallmark active christie show to get done and there's more than a who it was a much to know you're to pick one of the most obscure character such easy to do. That's cheap okay. that one. you don't think did you wouldn't even think about doing. It is the one who did it. that's cheap. i love the final finale. I loved it I thought that it was a twist. That wasn't a reach which i was worried about. You know i that was part of look. You know brand stark in the final episode of game of thrones. A lot of people didn't see that coming a of people hated it and it was a bit of a reach in the way they got to. It was rushed and all of that and even though i liked game of thrones the final season. I didn't love the finale. I loved this finale First of all it was much more than a who done it show. I mean it was a it was a very good who done. It was a very good thriller It was really the story of of mare and her journey To you know sort of come to grips with the fact that she had not grieved for her son committed suicide and the relationships that had been impacted along the way And i thought that. I thought it was a beautiful ending in many ways ending the relate. First of all i think. The acting was outstanding I thought kate winslet. I thought the three women. Kate winslet and julianne nicholson and Jean smart were really good in this show. And i thought this scene with lor and mare at the end was was really it was an incredible scene And i thought it was very touching and very moving As far as the twist with ryan it was completely plausible. Not that we thought of it but the way they got to it was plausible It was obviously fit ten minutes into the episode. Tommy you do. Something else was coming. Because it wasn't all wrapped up with john. Trying to kill billy and then mayor finding out that it was john etc. Something else was coming. I we did not know what it would be now. There may have been a major mistake or a major hole In how they got to to ryan although people are telling me. Because i talked about this on radio this morning that i've got to go back and watch that scene but i thought that mr carol who called up at the end and you get to the fact that he had been missing his gun and i thought the implication that he'd been missing his gun and then it was returned with for a significant period of time. When it wasn't it was in the same night so somehow he went out saw that his gun was missing and then went out the following morning and it was back. Ok and wouldn't he in the midst of murder in that small town Wouldn't he have reported that. Somebody took his gun in the middle of the night while some people said he was old and he wasn't sure and he didn't really imply with with direct With direct lines in the show that that the gun had been missing for more just tonight. Anyway i i i. I thought that it was I thought that if it wasn't one of the people we talked about especially when we're talking about richard her boyfriend who you know. What was his purpose anyway. During the show there are a couple of things something he tells her. Oh lehman i signed a contract at the college. I'm going somewhere the mara we knew. What a shock him for lever. That was as it turned out. That was really an unnecessary part of the show. Looks some people said. It was unnecessary that we serial killer in the show actually wasn't provided a couple of thrilling episodes. And you know for a while you were convinced that maybe everything was tied together in that just separated the two events. I still think the whole chaban her daughter and the relationships that she was in especially last week when she was essentially stalking her new girlfriend via via text. I thought that that was a little bit unnecessary There was a moment there during the show where i thought it might be frank's new wife or it might be Or or that my guest from a couple of weeks ago that it was going to be lore was gonna turn out to be right that she was protecting You know the family and that will end and the end. John's being the father of this child I thought it was wrapped up in a way that was completely plausible. I thought it was really well done. And i thought..

"Don't want it. You don't need it but you're gonna get it anyway. The kevin sheehan show he. Is kevin times here today. I'm here Hope everybody had a great weekend. We both have watched the finale of the show. We've been talking about it for the last seven weeks. Maher town we will get to that we will get to the neaten the naomi osaka story From the french open. But i think we should start with the wizards who stayed alive last night. Beating the seventy sixers one twenty two to one fourteen In a game that to me. It's pretty simple. I mean if embiid plays in the game more than eleven minutes. The wizard season is over. I mean it's really. It isn't more much more than that. This is the easiest recap of a game of all time now. There are other things in the game. That i want to talk about But the bottom line is joel. Embiid got hurt. He's having an mri on his knee. Today eleven minutes. When he was in the game they were up by as many as ten he got two fouls called on gathered. Who started the game two fouls on len who came in foregathered and then he left the game. In the wizards Came back and even they trailed at half time. They took a fourteen point. Third quarter lead in held on for dear life against primarily. Seventy sixers backups. Because ben simmons was in foul trouble for much of the game If you watch the game on saturday night it was an embarrassment. I mean it was one of the worst. You know efforts. I've seen the one thing that i liked about last night. Even with him. Beat in the game. Tommy is that they actually came out and played with the level of urgency like they had interest in winning the game in extending their season but if embiid plays and place his normal minutes. The wizards are over there. Season's over that's the way i saw it. How did you see it. I agree with you. I agree with you totally and you know. Let's face it. Their number eight. See now who who managed to squeeze their way into being the seed and they're playing a number one seed so i don't know how are we could expect a. I mean much more than than what we've seen. This is the way the nba works. I mean the the the top teams the difference between the top teams. And the also ryan's is significant. But you're right i mean. The wizards are taken golf states. If embi played up there. And i know because he didn't play daniel gaffer even look more impressive when he played. But my my. My takeaway was the wizards better. Not screw up gifford and more better not either the development of those guys up because he gaffer. They've really got something they make they got a bargain in gaffer and he's got potentially be a real significant contributor to a good team And with hotter more and i just hope that you know as the organization does they. Don't screw this up. yeah they. I think they For next year And maybe even the following year have like gay team option on his rookie deal That chicago signed him to when they drafted him. I thought i'm not even talking about that. Talk about about how. Well he got it. You know. he's got to stay here for you know a meaningful amount of time So mean. I think effort has been phenomenal I thought hot schumer had his best game as a wizard because playoff game. And i really do like hot summer now so much more than i used to. I'm bought into hot summer. A being a potential future star not guaranteed star. But a player. Who has a chance to be. You know a eight hundred number two legitimate all star on a team something like that and you know if you think about beal westbrook and hotch chamara if he were to emerge quickly as as a star and a third star in the team. What would that mean. well it would mean Not a championship. It would mean forty five to forty eight wins year. Maybe a five seed in may be one series one. That's the upside with this team. No matter what hot shimmer becomes an. I'm more intrigued with what he can become now than. I was say a month or two months ago. the They're just not anywhere near the upper echelons of the eastern conference the stars on the teams in the eastern conference from the three that play in brooklyn in kyrie irving and kevin durant and james harden to even to be honest with you. The two that play in philadelphia. Certainly no one of the three matches embiid. Embiid is a true heavyweight star. The wizards don't have you know like we've talked about a top ten player You know milwaukee has won Held the hawks may have one when all is said and done. The celtics have won Anyway the game last night was interesting because first of all did you watch it. I mean were you watching it on. Tnt up because you're up in the poconos right now. But i watched it. The crowd was great now. I know there were a lot of philly fans in the crowd. I was told that by people who were at the game but the crowd was. You could tell that Through the tv watching it. I was shocked at the noise. That philly fans saturday night was even louder because they played so well but anyway. I thought the urgency was there at the fans were great Even if it was sort of a mixed track there were more wizards fans there than than seventy sixers fans. I don't think there's any doubt about that. But whatever Whatever the percentage breakdown there are a lot of philly fans there I thought hot shimura was awesome. I thought their intensity was awesome. But here's just an observation about this series you know neither westbrook or beal have played a great game yet. Bill is not played. well I you know he had a couple of big shots down the stretch at seven turnovers in the game last night and it could have been ten turnovers Last night westbrook was three for nineteen from the floor. They were combined twelve for forty two and for this series. I think bill is something like five for twenty five on threes. He was three for twenty coming into the game last night. They got lucky. And maybe they'll continue to get lucky in this series. This is a big injury report coming up this afternoon. Bee's tommy it's not nuts to say it isn't that if joel embiid somehow got seriously injured last night in his out for the series that the wizards would have a legitimate chance of winning any game that he doesn't plan now. Are they gonna win three more. Which is what they'd have to do to complete the time. Nba comeback. Nobody's ever come back from three nothing down. I doubt it. I think philly would be able to summon up enough there deeper in their bench To win one of these games but we would go into tomorrow. Night's game as example as an example in philadelphia. If joel embiid is out and the sixers be like a very short favourite. These would be toss up games going into it and the one encouraging thing again is that i don't even think bill has played a great game yet in this series. Now i'm not expecting embiid to be out I'm not expecting embiid. Be completely compromised like healthwise for the rest of the series. But i don't know And if he were to be out for or or not be anywhere near one hundred percent believe it or not. The wizards could win any game against them. Whereas before last night i bet philly last night laying eight and a half. I bought it down to eight. I thought they were going to destroy the wizards last night. I thought saturday night. We saw a team that was basically had quit. They got embarrassed on saturday night. The defense was horrible It looked like they were still more concerned about the popcorn incident and they were winning anything And last night at the beginning of the game. I think it was like eighteen eight early something like that and i thought yeah this is not going to go well and this is going to be another blow. I think they led by ten at one point in the first quarter maybe twelve and then embiid got hurt in the whole game changed around. I mean that's not a coincidence. He's that good that good. By the way. Tommy i had Tony massenburg on the radio. This morning and i've had scott brooks on a bunch and it wiped talked to both of them about embiid in gino. Both of them. How about this scott brooks played with akeem allies one in houston you know in the mid nineties on one of those championship. Teams tony massenburg in one of his seventeen. Nba stops. He played with akeem lajon. And when i brought it up. He said he said this when he goes. I definitely see. If that's where you're going. I definitely see the comparison in embiid's game to allies you on there. A lot of comparisons minus three point shooting..

"Need to talk about here the turnovers. Obviously, we're in a major major issue in this one twenty turnovers for the Lakers 16 for the Wizards, you know, they had six in the first quarter the Wizards did and that was how the Lakers jumped out to a big lead that 10-point lead after the first quarter dead. And then the Wizards pretty much stopped turning the ball over and the Lakers kept racking up the turnovers. We talked about margin of error. The turnovers were a major issue in this one and you just you can't turn the ball over 20 times in a game when you don't have a d and you don't have dentist router and part of that goes back to what you were just saying Ron about guys being in unfamiliar roles that can lead to turnovers that can lead to defensive. No excuse but still for someone that's watching the game. It can be incredibly frustrating to see the turnovers just pile up and pile up and pile up and know that that's that's really putting you in a tough spot. If you're hoping to gain the game. Yeah, and and of the 20 turnovers the Wizards had nine steals which first off giving up nine steals to the second worst defense in in the league is is one of them on its own but that means that at the very least eleven of their 20 turnovers were basically unforced errors. Yeah, because they're not attributed to anyone on the Wizards wage. That and that's just you can't do that. You know the Wizards even though their record is not great. It's eleven and Seventeen. They have Bradley Beal. Who's the NBA's leading scorer and they Russell Westbrook who? Yes, he had issues as a player but I mean, this is an MVP we're talking about so it's not like the Wizards are bad by any stretch. They just didn't have a great start to the year, but they're not bad. So you can't give them any any breathing room because they'll take advantage of it. Yeah there an NBA team this is what happens if you play an NBA team and you make the mistakes that you make your going to lose games when you're doing these things when you're a while, especially if you don't have your stars and then if you are turning the ball over a lot, right, if you are not doing a good enough job on the boards, you're giving up a lot of points in the paint and you're not hidden from downtown like each of those things can in some ways. He's the the loss of one of the other ones, you know, if you turn the ball over twenty times, but you shoot 45% from 3 that makes up for it because you're getting more possession. Or more points out of those possessions where you don't turn the ball over cuz you're shooting so well from 3, if you do shoot poorly from 3 and turn the ball over lot. Then you're a big big trouble and that's what we've been seeing from the Lakers recently and then the points of the paint 66 for the Wizards 50 for the Lakers. Once again, they lose the Battle Points of the paint, but Ron big picture..

"Oh God somehow the Lakers lose to the Washington Wizards dropping this game not pretty and over time 1:27 to 1:20 for the Lakers fall. They they need gas. I think we're at that point. They are completely out of gas. They are done right now and they need the All-Star break and fortunately they still have to play it's five or six more games before they can get there. But this team looks like they just have nothing left in the tank late in the game. They just didn't have it early on things look pretty good. It's pretty promising at a 10-point lead after the first quarter after that though. It was all downhill off. From their joining me tonight. We've got Ron government from lakersnation.com. We're going to break everything down talk it through and talk to to all of you. So if you have any questions and comments, you're throwing them in from YouTube from Facebook from Periscope. We are going to give away some lakersnation.com license plate frames tonight, Ron. How you doing, man? You know, I was doing great for the first half and the little bit of the third quarter there, but I think the Lakers had a 75 to 60 lead. And from that point. I was completely downhill. Yeah, I mean not much to say that that's a disappointing loss a game you really should win especially when you are out of gas you need to win games against inferior opponents so that you know, when games like Wednesday come against the Jazz, you can take that loss and not have it affect your standing too much. Yeah. I took the remainder of the Lakers schedule. They have five games left, Utah Portland Golden State Phoenix Sacramento. That's who you're playing the next five. I would if that's an option. I would skip them. I would skip every single one of those games and take the L on the record and give the team two weeks off or an extra what week and a half off. They look like they are completely toast their legs. Are are shot know a d ROM know Dennis Schroder. I especially think this next game Wednesday against the Jazz, I would probably sit LeBron. I mean, he looks like he is he just had to play when how many minutes do you play tonight? 5:40 something and he looks like his legs are totally shot lot of shots coming up short. I played 43 minutes tonight. Yeah, no sugar for that one either for you off. No way at the Davis and the Lakers are completely out of energy. I would be the very least. I'm sitting LeBron for the next game. I don't see any reason to put him out there and burn him out completely during this stretch, which pretty clear. Nobody has any legs left right now. So we'll see if the Lakers actually go that route but this is a team that just looks like they're desperate for.

"wizards" Discussed on The Lead

"First of all. Can you just take us through the winding road of how russell westbrook ended up with the washington wizards so at some point over the offseason westbrook made it clear to the rockets that he wanted them to find him a new home. Something is up in houston. Tell our tim macmahon in. Adrian were ski that both russell westbrook and james harden have expressed uncertainty about the direction of the franchise. And when you have a guy who makes that sum of money and you have to match salaries it just becomes very difficult to find a market and that's kind of why you see a lot of these guys on supermax contracts. Getting swamped see john. Wall and russell westbrook ending up in a similar situation is the only two guys that are comparable because their salaries of the exact really try to make sense but one hundred and thirty two million one hundred and thirty two million. Okay ready to pull a trigger. That i think it was more of like you know what we think. Your guy will be better for us and we think our guy would be better for you. So why don't we just compromising. Meet somewhere in the middle on this but wizards and rockets agreeing to trade there on happy point guards. John wall the houston russell. Westbrook to washington wizards also sent the rockets a lottery. Protective twenty twenty three first round pick you wrote about how westbrook has made his presence known with his new team pretty much right away. What did you mean by that so. I asked the question of ryuhachi mira earlier this week about what he's learned about russ during his short time that they've been practicing together and the first thing that really said he's a great leader. His vocal is almost like a hiccup yellow dog. Does he always starts me. Is greg guy. I liked where with him. You know he actually changed. Like energy. <hes> the team. That's not something you always hear about russell westbrook but you know that he's loud you know that he's going to make his personality known as smith who is their backup point guard and has played for eleven organizations in his career. He got a call the night of the trade while he was asleep. Like in the middle of the night from russell westbrook and one o'clock in the morning and he's i wake up man what you're doing. I'm like brought. I am sleep. He like you know what. I'm all come on. You know what kind of juice we break in who russ is and restaurants kept yelling at him. Aren't you juiced argued right now. Aren't you juiced an issue is like i'm a sleep so i think the amount of energy that he's going to bring was apparent from that one. Am moment when he called in the middle of the night and welcome.

"wizards" Discussed on Very Bad Wizards

"Beloved patriots subscribers that patriot dot com slash very bad. Wizards again, thank you for all the ways in which you have helped support this podcast both by interacting with us contacting us and supporting us financially. We very much appreciate it. Okay. Now, we're gonna continue our discussion of notes from underground part to the way we left it. I had said that I think once he read par to makes you look at part one differently. And makes you look at the underground man differently. And make you look at that whole position that's being outlined in part one just really briefly. So in part one the way the underground man frames. It is he's trying to figure out why he has this trait where he will positively enjoy humiliating himself. He will positively enjoy his degradation. The the answer to this question is that he is living in a society in a world that. That embraces deterministic world view, according to which once we understand the laws of nature using science and reason we will set up society in such a way that human beings always act to their own advantage right now human beings act against their own self interests. But that's just because they're not enlightened we now or soon we'll have a way of enlightening them to their true interests. And so then they will always asked in that in that direction in the interests of themselves in the interests of society, and he considers his perverse actions, his capricious actions his acts that are so plainly go against his own self interest. That is his way of firming his freedom from this world. View that once enlightened to their true interest. They will act in a way that's oriented towards those interests. And he's saying, no, we won't human beings aren't wired that way, we will always act perversely. We will always act in ways that go against our interest just to assert our own freedom just to cert- our own independence from these laws. So it was as we discussed last time. He was kind of painting his his perversity and his pathologies in a in a somewhat heroic light heroic, maybe from an existentialist point of view. And I think in part to use start to see this. Maybe as delusional. This is a very frustrated, man. Consumed by guilt consumed by. Loneliness in alien, Asian, and he wants to make sense of that and in order to justify himself in his existence. He has come up with this fairly grandiose idea. That's one of the things that I wanted to talk about is is this idea that that all that philosophy and part one is one way to read it is it's a rationalization of a life gone terribly wrong life that was never right to start with. And that just kept getting worse and worse right thinks that that. That subjecting himself to suffering. Discusses his toothache. Like why he he enjoys having like a really bad toothache to him at livens up. It reminds him that he is conscious that he's consciousness to him is is the one thing that's not part of this stupid determine ISM this two times two makes for and you know, if there's one thing you would think we were biologically wired to do is treat toothache if we can God knows.

"wizards" Discussed on Very Bad Wizards

"Anybody can have. Very. Very good, man. Just to say that wisit. Welcome to very bad. Wizards I'm Tamla summers from the university of Houston. Dave if life were musical, and you went to go see a musical. Would it just be a play? What motivated this question, but the minute you said if life were musical I was like suicide suicide suicide, and then w suicidal that you would then have to go see him. It would. I, you know, even in TV shows, my favorite kind of TV shows. I think the wire was like this on purpose is when the music is is is is part of the background. Not even when it's used to get you to a moat. Because even that is mildly bothers me, right? You might have a problem with our main segment the movie that we'll be discussing vertigo because music plays a prominent. Yeah. No. I don't know. Haven't thought too deeply about this a score? A well done score is is better than a win. Like, all of a sudden, you see like the character all sad and some some Emo song is playing like, and it's like a little it's almost like a montage of an emotion. That that's artificial to me a score the best scores. I think you don't notice them too much you have to sort of pay attention. And I don't know if that I mean, I certainly noticed the score in vertigo, but it's very hard to like the best score is it's very hard to separate from the movie. It's hard to imagine. How that movie could possibly be done without it. I mean, psycho and jaws come to mind as as having just one theme that is that is almost like that that Josh sound is almost just what? Now, what a shark sounds like. And the knife stabbing. Avoiding my question and the import of the question if life were musical, and then went to go see a musical in this world. Would it just be a play? Because all it is doing what life is doing. What? So so a play in that since life is a musical. What would be special about? It is that there's no music. No, well, a play. Yeah. I wasn't asking about play. But yeah. Seeing a play would be sort of flake seeing a musical people would find it weird that nobody was breaking out into song and dance Darren and there were no numbers, and they were just talking just talking that'd be where you know, if life or musical, and I went to see a play. I might feel like people do when they go see musicals, which is like. Wow, only lifer. Like this, right. Fucking people singing all the time. I even have nightmares where. Sort of all of a sudden thrust on stage. And I'm supposed to know all the words to the stupid song. Mike, wait that we agree on what we're going to sing. Probably something deep, and like, I dunno traumatic about your reaction to musicals. This is why I don't like most of the sort of Disney movies from the, you know, the nineties especially made and yeah lion. King like I was like other just trying to secretly get kids into musicals, their musical agenda. Yeah. No. And it's probably true. Look what Broadway completely Rodway and lion. King musical think. It's the most successful musical of all time on Broadway. Holy shit. Oh shit that cats. So they win the Disney law. The musical love his resist people tobacco lobby was ultimately brought down or at least, you know, crippled. But you don't big musical always. Find a way, you know. Your question reminded me of this this small detail. In in the watchmen comic sin. Superheroes actually exist in that world, all of the comic books that people read are like cowboy Qarase because I don't have any superhero comments because why would they like superheroes or real thing? I actually saw we haven't talked in a while. But I saw and I never see marvel movies. I haven't last marvel movie. I can't even remember maybe it was the first guardians of the galaxy. But I can't take the CGI in it. But the Spiderman into the spider verse. I a heard that it was really good. And be since it was it self animated. I didn't have to worry about the CGI L. I just can't stop back at all. So I went and saw it and it was good. It was amazing. Spiderman, and it's a Sony..
