"There's only one place to start really Undergoing. A social says there's Manchester United season is a failure following their penalty defeat in the Europa League final to Vila Real goalkeeper doubled. The Hehe missed the crucial spot kit after a math and shoot up with 22 shots in on penalty in penalties into Milan are looking for a new coach. After Antonio contact quit a few days after leaving the team to necessary our title a Mamelodi Sundowns of one, the South African Premier League for the fourth time in a row in the basketball there winds for Angola's Petra Della Wanda on Egypt, Zamalek in the quarterfinals off the Basketball Africa League and also in the MBA. Cameron's Joel Embiid had 22 points. This Philadelphia 76 has beat Washington Wizards to take a two game lead in their playoff series. New York Knicks leveled up against the Atlanta Hawks, Utah Jazz are currently playing the Memphis Grizzlies is six point game in that 1 97 103 to the Jazz and Nigeria are stepping into hosting African athletics championships. Algeria had asked to postpone it twice, but will now be held in Legos. Between the 23rd and 27 from June and it keeps alive on opportunity for many athletes to achieve Olympic qualification. Most of all of you in around about 30 minutes time looking for that, Isaac. Thank you. That had to Hong Kong now where and you would is on our business desk and and you, President Biden and his administration are criticizing China over trade on the lack of openness about the origins of covert. How is China reacting? As far as the origins of covert a concern. China's quite angry about this. Basically, Mr Biden said that his intelligence agencies were divided over the credibility of a story that comfort emerged from human contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident, And he called on China to be more open with that. Well, China's said through its embassy in Washington that political forces of being fixated on permitted Hillman that bin it's manipulation and the bane and the Arctic. Your pardon on the blame game on it said also that if America wanted access 22 laboratories in China. Then it called on the Americans to give access to some of their similar facilities, biological and chemical warfare facilities. At at Fort Dietrich. Is there to say that the Chinese have been hoping that maybe Joe Biden may tone down some of the kind of anti Chinese sentiment we heard under Donald Trump. Is that not the case? I think that Mr Biden is being a lot more careful in the way he treats the relationship with China. But at the same time, I think that being anti China is something that resonates with both Democrats and Republicans, both in politics and also ordinary Americans. So I think this is easy political thing for him to do. They've been talking about trade as well. Don't forget Andre. This is the first time really the trade at the trade chiefs, All of America and China have been talking to each other. China's a bit more positive on that's calling. These is candid, pragmatic, constructive exchanges in the bilateral trade was very, very important. This is a perhaps I think a case where you know Mr Biden is being a bit softer on China rather than rather than President Trump. Remember, two years ago, a year or two ago, it was China and America signed a trade deal. That would where the Chinese said that they'd buy more American products. Of course, Cove. It has really Really affected that badly. So I'm not quite sure how America will perhaps push the Chinese on whether they should keep their promises or have kept their promises or not. Thanks. This Tuesday on the BBC World Service Shock and sadness in the U. S. After Mass shooting took place early on Wednesday, when workers at the San Jose Rail Yard in California We're getting ready for the start of the day shift the gunman is dead.

Well, we know that a member of the Valley Transit Authority he was a member of the maintenance staff and apparently disgruntled got up this yesterday morning here this morning here and Decided Tonto unload on his employees, and you wound up killing eight people and then turned the gun gun on himself. And it's just left the city reeling. Yeah, I can imagine he is it right that he turned the gun on himself after the police closed in on him. Yeah. You know, there have been varying reports of what actually happened at the end there, but I know that you know he killed the aid and wounded several more. Some of whom were hearing aren't in the best shape. Um, and law enforcement hasn't been very open about the details behind. The gunman's death. They have said that when they entered the When they entered the premises. They found him dead. So it's and then they and then it was self inflicted. So that's about all we know on that one. At this point, Do we have any clue yet on a possible motive? Well, uh, I'm talking to some his ex wife Eighth and some folks who worked with him. He seemed to be a very day. They said he was a moody, individual and angry individual and at times And and felt like some employees got easier assignments than he received. Um I think the quote that stood out was his ex wife, who hadn't spoken to him and 13 years said when he was You know, in a good mood. He was a great guy, but when he was in a bad mood he when he was mad, he was mad. So I think that's what we're dealing with. Was it to the extent that he wasn't even surprised to hear this news? Well, I think you're always surprised when something like this happens. And the folks who knew him and the folks who worked with him were very shook this afternoon, you know?

The city is able to recover from this. And on the gun problem. California's governor is asking what the hell is wrong with us? What can he walk? Another's do about this? Well, it's a systemic issue, in my opinion, and it's you know, it's going to take people smarter than me toe to solve it. I think that there is a You know, I think there's many problems problems over here that that lead to situations like this and I, But I think main, mainly more than anything is we seem to be very desensitized to this sort of thing. Um You know, it happens all the time. It happens every day here now it seems like and so I think people have become very desensitized has become almost a normal way of life here, and it's not normal.

"Law is changing on the state is set to get rid of one of the few remaining laws which actually restrict gun ownership. Texas intends to allow people to carry handguns even without a license or any training. Texas already has some of the loosest gun laws in the country on dit share of mass atrocities, as well as 1.6 million handgun license holders, and the argument often is With so many guns around, the more people that have it, the safe, everyone is. Police actually have been campaigning against this change in the law, which is being driven largely by Republican lawmakers. Democratic Congressman Vicky Goodwin stepped away from the debates of the capital just about an hour ago to tell us why she's bean talking against the proposals. It's a step backwards and making us less safe here in Texas. We right now require people to have a permit to carry a gun around on the streets. And this new law would allow people to carry their guns without any training. Does this mean suspension of background checks? Because every time there is a gun incident in America? It's the background checks that becomes the focus. If I went into a gun store, I could just buy and walk out. Good. I you do still have to go through a background check. In some instances, we have a lot of gun shows, particularly here in Texas, and individual sellers can sell again to another individual without having a federal firearms license. But if you went into an academy store, for example, you would still have to go through a background check. So we haven't done away with the background check. There's just a lot of loopholes. As an outsider. We see Texas is having a self image that it projects of a frontier state of an independent state of a small government state as well. And this is I'm sure being promoted by small government politicians as well. Isn't this just a reflection of a culture that exists amongst the people of Texas? I think over half of the people here in Texas think it's a bad idea. It's the extreme right to our very loud and they've been making this an issue for many years. Sort of a cultural issue. It's something that that becomes a signal point of argument, does it? Absolutely. Yeah. What about law enforcement? Can't imagine anything that makes being a police officer. More difficult than mortgage guns in circulation. What do they say they actually had a rally at the Capitol against permit? Let's carry. They're not in favor of this, because, like you say they more guns on our streets, and they don't know who's the good guy who's the bad guy. It just makes it really impossible for them to do their job. Also the time that we are talking constantly and quite rightly about George Floyd and the issues of Police violence which often shade into police militarization. The fact that the police feels the need to arm itself is that connection not made because surely the more guns are in circulation. The more violence the police fear that they're going to face the Conservatives really are very loud. And they say that the police are good. We back the blue And yet their tone deaf, you know, because here are the police saying, we don't believe permit. Let's carry is good. It's not safe As I understand it. You've just stepped away from the debate that's going on at the moment on the floor in order to talk to us and part of that debate. Has bean gun victims. Now you've had recent mass atrocities in Texas as well. How does that way in the debate Teachers in certain schools can carry guns. And now this bill that we were hearing would allow them to carry it around through the school on their body, Put it in a gun safe or put it in any locked. Cabinet. The extreme laws that they keep trying to pass are very unfortunate when you hear from victims of gun crime. Do they have a respond to that argument? I mean, people who have suffered this and as I understand it, you've suffered as well from this your family. Is there ever a point at which you say, actually, yeah. You know, we would have been safer if we'd had a gun to those arguments ever stack up. You know, there's a lot of stories where that's just not the case, because in my situation, my father was shot in 1990 in his home. I was off to college. My mom was offered a meeting. There was a break in thing. Gun that was used was actually my brother's hunting rifle. And so in that situation, my my dad was Not able to defend himself, because unless you're having a gun on your body at all times, you don't you can't necessarily defend yourself. I also have one of my staffers who's a gunshot victim herself and kind of a similar situation. Someone came into her home, got her gun and killed her boyfriend and shot her. She survived, but You know, even when you have a gun That doesn't always mean that you're going to be able to defend yourself Eyes one of the key arguments that's been going back and forth in Texas that law being passed awaiting confirmation by the governor.

Well, you know, I think the NBA to is showing interest in also and developing the game on the continent. While it has been that typically, you know talent is typically exported from the continent into the league. This is an opportunity for several talented players on the continent to have the opportunity and the option to play professional level basketball. And remain right at home.

"Welcomes the ball court welder. Basketball and I am coach. Drew things are changing right now and health focus. Health issues is going to be the focus. Why Games aren't being played right here on ball court? Well I'm coach ruled. This is the of basketball. Yes the world of basketball seems to have actually come to a halt is been crazy. These last four to forty eight hours of basketball have been absolutely insane. The reason is is if you have not heard the NBA season has been suspended for Corona virus outbreak. Yes to Utah Jazz. Players were actually tested positive for the corona virus. Utah Jazz Star. Donovan Mitchell and center rudy. Gobert Beer Rudy Gobert. Who Jokingly was touchy every single. Microphone at a press conference last week joking about the corona virus was actually tested. It was initial person to test positive. At that moment they actually stopped the game in. Okay see because of what was going on and you can see on camera of Chris Paul asking what was going on with Rudy Beer and if everything was ok so day quarantine everyone and started testing the players to make sure that they were okay. Donovan Mitchell did test positive. They were reports that really go bear with being careless in the locker. Room touching each person's belongings and playing and touching each person as well so this has been an absolute shock. The doors closed due to the corona virus on the NBAC's also also in further news in regard to that the NBA G. League self. Yes the NBA's Developmental Basketball League that they do utilize to bring up. Talent is actually going to be closing their doors as well and suspended your seasons afoul along with the NBA until further notice until they find out exactly what's going on and they could get a hold on this. The seasons of basketball right now has come to an end so with that being said there are a few things that has taken place that you moments that we didn't know that was coming up. That now is actually upon us of Vince. Carter actually took his last three pointer and this could be that could be the last game that INS Carter place so I remember at one point in time you know. It was an amazing thing to hear about Vince. Carter as a matter of fact I was reading. Tweet saying that. You know the greatest thing about Vince. Carter is being able to tell your son about the story of Vince Carter and then taking them to a game show to watch him play. So is it. Was that moment that so Vince. Carter is GonNa be closed doored his career. Now you know so long happy trails. Hopefully we'll see you again soon and we get passes now. I want to move once in a world of basketball because everyone wants to know on a whole what is taking place not just in the NBA now that NBA doors are closed and the G. League close. Where are we going to get our basketball fix now me myself? I A huge basketball fan. So the first thing I did was turned to my Go-to my trusty backup when I don't have basketball is always there for me and yes the NBA. Oh the NBL stated Perth. Wildcats will plan to play in the grand finale series. Even though they were actually on a plane coaches and players were on a plane with someone who would tad tested positive for the corona virus. There was stated that that person was actually in a different portion of the plane so they didn't have as much Didn't have as much interaction as it wasn't any interaction as a matter of fact so they feel that they're comfortable place where they will be playing in that game right now It kind of scares me a little bit. You know because they were right on there and in Australia also in other news outside of Basketball Australia Tom Hanks and his wife Scott actually contracted the Kroto viruses. Well so we did the wildcats to date to right now as I am reporting right now. It is said that that series will continue but it may be a game time decision with the way things have been changing recently now with everyone locking down and talking during these times especially with a sports on a whole stopped in Italy due to this corona virus. It is safe to say that a lot of countries are taking precautions and a lot of countries are actually being lenient at this moment but there is one country in particular. That's not being as lenient. And that is China. China's Basketball Association actually made a statement today that American players have to return for the season. Or what they risk being banished from the team. Not from the team. I'm talking banished. From the association altogether and their agents will actually receive a two year suspension. Now of course due to the health concerns a lot of American players are deciding that they will not return currently right now they are forty Americans that are actually playing in China including ty Lawson Germany Lane and of course make them Dance Land Stevenson. So these are things that We we want to look at Stevenson. It is reported that he's in talks with Indiana and going back to the Pacers but in order to do that he's going to have to get out of the contract that he currently has with a team as well as he'd have to get that contract lifted off a fever as well. Hopefully we go see Lanson back in an NBA Jersey. Shortly but I am. I'm safe to say that. He will not be playing in China for the remainder of the season and possibly could face banishment. Now also when I initially wrote my show for this week I had some great news that I wanted to talk about. I wanted to really go ahead and dive into it. It was going to actually take on segment of its own but Jill to use recent events just knows actually being postponed the segment. We'll still be there by itself because I will be discussing this. We Wanna see those developments as it takes place but the basketball Africa Lee is here. Bahir is it was about to happen. As a matter of fact on March thirteenth Friday March thirteenth it was set to debut in Dakar. And I tell you it. It was something that everybody was waiting for. But as far as speaking with the Sengalese Government Day came to realize that it probably will not being the best interests to go ahead and go ahead and actually saw this inaugural season at this moment. Though it'd be one was saddened. It is something that that they felt would be the best interest. I will go ahead and take a brief little break. We'll be right back with you when I come back. We're GONNA talk more about Basketball Africa. And how the corona virus has been taking place on basketball and some other stories has gone place in basketball right here on ball court. I am code wrote. This is the world of basketball. Welcome back to ball court. The world of Basketball. I am coach drew. Yes and I wanNA thank you what I when we add left this talking about the basketball Africa League and I am super excited. Beat the fact right now that they are this is a league that is Kinda partnered with the FIBA. There's came together to make this league of strongly now just in case you haven't been noticing or haven't really been watching in December the actually held a tryout for this lead put together these twelve teams. That are strong enough to go at it now. This is something that's going to be next level a basketball league of this level sitting on that continent continent. Now they're going to be outfitted by Nike Jordan so it is going to be on the same levels of the G. League as well as MBA itself. This is first class all the way but at the same point in time we are amidst a pandemic at this point in time so they must go ahead and make preparations to make sure that not only protect their players. They make sustainable for them for the future. So President Ahmadou Gao fall stated that followed the recommendations of the Sengalese government regarding the escalating health concerns related to the corona virus Balls inaugural season will be postponed. I am disappointed that we are not able to off this historic league as scheduled but look forward to the highly anticipated launch of ball at a later date and I must let you know President Fall. We are one hundred percent with you. We look forward to the kick off for that season and we will be watching and waiting patiently as things. Go ahead and Reveal itself with the Crow Virus Right. So let's go ahead and move along to college. How is college handling this at this moment right now the NC two wave away has decided that they are actually going to be holding these holding games and the tournament games in front of absolutely no one just coaches and selected family members so it would just be those people actually in attendance for the NC sway tournament so watch madness is going to look a little bit different? If you're watching it on television. It won't have that same field same roaring the crowd and is going to be a little bit different but luckily enough. You will still have your conference games. No that is not the case. Actually most of the major conference and some minor conferences follow suit as well such as the big ten two. Acc and Immi axe have actually decided that they will be playing in front of empty chairs. My take on this is as a fan. I we miss out on seeing some some great basketball live. I guarantee how many people would would want to have been there that day that Wilt Chamberlain scored one hundred many many wants to be in attendance. But they couldn't get to it but as a human being. I definitely could understand that. We must protect each and every one of us so I can understand why they have not decided not to play in front of the public Actually I'm getting breaking news here I've seen here. Nc Two A. is going to cancel the entire two thousand nine hundred ninety two thousand twenty season so it will not just be not in front of the public it will not be at all apparently The Conference Twenty. Two Conference tournaments have been cancelled as well as ANC to a tournament itself has been cancelled so this corona virus is actually gotten to the point where it does a lot more things that are being canceled just so so let's just go ahead just assume reiterate the NBA season has been canceled. NC two ways season has been cancelled as as well as March madness ball..

I quote, significant cash considerations. I'm supposed to ask you. If it's a good move, for Beasley what? Instead, I will ask you is what does it say Byron about the Lakers that a player who was a key part of their roster. This season apparently is now out the league and going back. I wouldn't say was. This is one of their summer signings. That doesn't mean you keep part. I mean, sometimes you guys take up space. I I know I I just wanted to go out there and make some money in China. Yeah.

But if Kevin Durant leaves Golden State the warriors are prepared to target in the summer of twenty twenty. Twenty one twenty sorry. Twenty twenty. I've got a on the brand go ahead. I think he's a small market guy thing he loves it in Milwaukee plan for bud. And what they this organization has built around hand.

And when they're LeBron James how he feels about went into championships in Miami. In that one championship in Cleveland, which one is more gratifying. Just brought every ounce of emotion out of this the one anyone in Cleveland. Yeah. Think this is one of those kids that love Milwaukee to gave them a chance. He's he's built his brand in Milwaukee. He feels comfortable in confident that this team is on the right direction. They got the best record in the NBA right now. So I think he's a type of guy like traces said he's not going to chase. It, you know. And he's a guy that can recruit guys to come play with him because the Bill even be hard creating. You can recruit too, but it is a little bit harder Milwaukee because a small market city. But that guy's talent. I think he wants to you know, win a championship in Milwaukee where he got started.

You'll see the if they adopt the US. Petition though, the be all serving the US interests are the expense of their relationship with China at expense of their own national interests.

National security is all about Washington's power in competing with China security much for your time this evening, we've been talking with our chief political analyst Shu-chen deal.

The great effort made a by that doll today. Become one of the great platform for policy the bait and information dissemination, and I wish today have even brighter and greater tomorrow. What comeback? The NBA will launch a professional league in Africa next year. The announcement was made on the eve of the sixty eighth NBA all star game. The basketball Africa league will feature twelve teams Charleston after qualification tournaments later this year with Gola Egypt Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia expected to be represented. No more than two teams from the same African country can qualify for the league. Former US president Bronco. Bama who is a huge basketball fan is also expected to play around the league expect to start playing in January twenty twenty with more or less. My colleague is now join us in a studio so jarring this is perhaps one of NBA most ambitious projects in years. So how are they going to put that into place very religious plan? And naturally, this will be the very. First time that the league is Iraq. We involve in an operation outside of North America. But actually MBA has invested heavily in Africa over the past years. For example, they have programs such as basketball without borders and giants have Africa and it set up an office in South Africa in two thousand ten and has an academy in Senegal. An NBA has also put on three games in Africa in the past five years. All of those have promoted the development of basketball industry in Africa. And there are already several professional teams. Across Africa's those time NBA is planning to unify them into one place and will provide financial support and some infrastructure and resources that are needed as well as training for the players coaches and referees where does the investment the money come from? Well, according to the NBA Commissioner, Adam silver, there will be other has been a tremendous reception from many of the NBA team owners and several of the partners of the. NBA have expanded expressed their strong desire to partner this new basketball Africa league, for example, Jordan brand Michael Jordan's signature nine of Nike products, and Pepsi, they are both on them. So you're talking about the basketball industry in Africa. So what does this mean for the African continent? Well, Adam silver said that they are committed to using basketball as AC Nommik engine to create new opportunities in sports, media, and technology across Africa. Well, first of all there are many talents on this continent. So was investment by the NBA that just mentioned they are now thirteen NBA players from Africa the season and the most well, no one is perhaps Philidelphia Sixers Joel Embiid and besides that seventy eight percent of NBA players have ties to Africa. So there must be many more young talents on the African continent that just need more opportunities. For example, decamp. Homo the hall of Famer he was born in Congo. And he was also at the announcement and out himself or set that the success of players like Mmatobole Ponant to the opportunity that existed not just in basketball by the sports industries throughout the continent..

"He has no plans to meet with Chicago police today. The statement comes after cops requested to meet with the empire actor again amid reports that he may have planned the assault on himself. Komo news time to sixteen in both Europe. And in Asia there are very strong professional basketball leagues, plenty of players from both of those leagues have played in the NBA, but throughout the entire continent of Africa. It's a different story. More of a club sort of seen. Now, the NBA and former president Bronco. Obama are working to change that. The Washington Post's Dez Bieler spoke with komo's Tom hutler. This basketball Africa league as I think it's being called how big would this be? And where were the teams relocated its plan to be a twelve team league at least at the outset. And they're going to draw from across the and it sounds like they're gonna hold a tournament to determine which of the existing club teams. Currently NASCAR are going to qualify for the league. So they'll play amongst themselves. But I think the league is gonna draw from countries such as Egypt Kenya. Morocco Nigeria Rwanda Senegal said after engineer so really all over the continent. And it really is going to be a major venture by the NBA in conjunction with FIBA, which is the international governing body of basketball to really establish something that's gonna I think you're a great job of promoting basketball and Africa and promote the NBA's brand. Of course. And it sounds like Barack Obama's gonna have some involvement with that. He had an AP. Report over the weekend that said from NBA Commissioner Adam silver that Obama is going to have some direct involvement, although the scope of his that in is yet to be determined. I don't think he's going to be Commissioner league. But you will have a little with the league, which is going to be called basketball Africa league. Yeah, we do know that the former president has a great affinity for basketball assessing shooting hoops on the court at the White House. So we're not sure to the extent of his involvement. But but the NBA definitely is involved in FIBA definitely is involved. So that would seem to make this a pretty fire venture. I think the NBA definitely use it that way. And of course, they're not just doing it for altruistic reasons. NBA? ABC's Africa as a major burgeoning market. In fact, Commissioner Adam silver said over the weekend that quote is a huge economic engine. And I think they see there are just major potential there. Both in terms of developing players for the league. And of course, the more players from around the world who star in the NBA, the more the league grows brand around the world. Of course, we already know there are plenty of foreign born players in the NBA, including some of its biggest stars. And we just saw in the in the all star game. We had Joel Embiid who's from Cameroon as a starter and Janas onto the combo whose parents are Niger interlude himself is from Greece.
