"Now if you're stuck in deeper leagues it wasn't decent game last week. Just kinda went on. Notice for donald. People's jones for rashard higgins landry's out again if you are expecting this game to you know get sideways and both these teams are doing what happened to the browns last week with the cardinals chartered than those guys will have an opportunity. But you gotta be really desperate to trust them fully. Let's sit down and let's go to the rams and the giants matthew stafford. I don't know everybody out. There is viewing his fantasy season. So far he's been like a lot of other quarterbacks he's had these big games but then a lot of like kinda like brady last night's games he's had three of those in two huge games but stat of the game. Matthew stafford career high completion rate. Complete career-high yards per attempt career-high touchdown percentage. The rates are probably going to come down as we play more games but it's he might just be like a sleeping giant because he's been really good so so he is You know would you rather start staffer prescott this week. I know he's in your top ten but how high prescott or staffer. i'll take stafford. I think last week was a little muggy firm because it was a season high in yardage. And if he gets the touchdown on top of it he has another big game so I like both. But i'll i'll take stafford ceiling. I think you're 'cause you never know what the volume for dak prescott. I know that the volume is an issue for dak prescott but david's mills just through over three hundred yards against the patriots defense. There's something with them. That's not the same as last year. And even if he doesn't throw a ton. We've seen them get plus touchdowns on a number of occasions. So i like dak butter okay. Stafford is a start. Though basically to summit at the giants have a bad defense they have the one of the worst pass rushes and as long as as long as they're not jetlagged. Ram should do just fine. Okay how much do you trust. Daryl henderson with the increase in role for sony michelle. Who had eleven carries last week a touchdown at seattle. Dave how much you trust henderson against the giants i trust them a lot. I would absolutely start him as a running back. Who's currently healthy with fifteen plus touch potential. Who's shown us that he can be successful and fantasy the end. Okay so henderson. Or daryl williams.

"The fifteen walks twenty-eight eagles twenty-two antonio brown played forty nine percent of the snaps and he had nearly as many receiving yards as jalen hurts. Had passing yards and yet jalen hurts scored five more fantasy points than tom. Brady we will get to that a full recap of the game recipes and thoughts plus a lot of injury news. This could be a week of replacements especially at running back. I'm adam as dave. Richard and jamie eisenberg here last night. Right start off good. Sorta grain it did for net was Was the king and antonio brown very good as well but all right we got. We got some catching up to do in terms of fantasy points guys. I want to come back to that a little bit. I think we should start though with the replacement running backs for this week. Because now with damian williams on the reserve covert lists and he's not going to play this game against the green bay packers that thrusts khalil. Herbert into the spotlight here. So dave let you go first. Is khalil her. But when you look at my missing any replacement running backs got cleo herbert. You got daryl williams at washington. You got chuba hubbard. Most likely against minnesota. You got devante booker against the rams missing anyone. I don't think so. I mean as we get as we roll through it. Maybe there might be one or two other players. I think you got it buddy. Just the backup flamy. Yeah it's the dow starters. I think that's asked all right at the big four khalil. Herbert daryl williams tuba hubbert devante booker. How do you rank them. Dave might be one. If jacobs doesn't play and another one in seattle of chris carson. Yeah that's probably. I guess collins let's collins on there because carson hasn't practice yet either other words one fifth of the nfl's teams have back running back. Yeah that's exactly awesome. How you rank them. And it's only week six damian williams or not damon. daryl. Williams is at the top for me. I just really like the opportunity. I liked the vote of confidence. Andy reid this week. I love the workload that he got last week. After clyde edwards allaire got hurt..

"Lob pass in NBA history considering the circumstances and having Yanis throw it down. Booker the drive. Phoenix has to foul ball throws it down. So you just described one of the most audacious plays in NBA history Zach. I am still haunted by I think the opposite, which brings up Ben Simmons, which brings up the fact that you're wearing a sixers cap in front of me right now on this call, which is offensive to be honest. And I have to ask you what you think these sixers look like if Ben Simmons is not in their lineup. How good can this team be? Are they the third best team in this conference? What are they to you without him? I think they're at grave risk of being in the play internment in the east because I think the top 6 in the east, which includes Philadelphia in theory at least is really, really strong. And it's not hard to fall out of that if one or two bad things befall your team. And we're obviously talking about a very bad thing but following your team. And you can talk to you about tyrese Maxie. I'm excited about tyrese Maxie. He stepped up when they needed them in the playoffs in particular in game 6. I think it was against Atlanta. Sheik Milton's like, seems exciting. I like the idea of shake milk every 5th game that version of shake Milton appears. You're like, oh, that's shake Milton, and then he like falls out of the rotation for four games. Machi style is solid, the Springer kid they drafted is interesting. Like all those names are interesting. The thing with interesting young guys is our brains tend to remember that one out of every 5th game when they showed all their potential for 8 consecutive minutes and not the other four when they were like young guys struggling in the NBA. You can criticize Ben Simmons for everything he isn't as a player. What he is is a really good consistent defensive player, like one of the best in the league and just a really good all around player who generates threes for them and to go from that to a zero for the roster spot and then replacing it with a bunch of unproven guys. I think that's a bigger hit than some people are realizing it's gonna be for Philly. So when you evaluate the sixers, are you seeing this through the lens of there's going to be a part replacing Ben and they will be X Y or Z, are you expecting Daryl to swing something? I'm expected her to be a trade because I just sink there has to be. I don't think there is any other solution. I mean, Ben Simmons is back. Let's be optimistic and assume he plays. Let's. Let's be even more optimistic and assume he plays well and the team is pretty good. I still think it's too far gone for there to be the real kumbaya reunion let bygones be bygones where a contender again, you know what, I do want to play with Joel embiid. You know what, this is the place for me. I just don't see that is happening. So you've been doing a Matata died in the press conference after game 7 ago. So I think eventually there will be a trade and the sixers Daryl morey will have to decide at some point and maybe it depends on how the season is going maybe it doesn't are we really gonna hold out for the home run swing. Are we prepared to spend the whole season holding out for the home run swing? And I should probably shouldn't use the term holding out, considering what it implies on the other hand. But or if there's a B deal, a B minus deal, that's like pretty good. It's not Damien Lillard. It's not Bradley Beal. It's pretty good. Helps our team now helps our team later, do you do that deal? And I think at some point they will face that decision. But a trade is going to happen now later, I just don't know when. So before we move on to a team that's actually like a stable universe of particles and not the chaos theory of the sixers Zach, what do the sixers have in front of them in terms of opportunity here? Realistically, because we've described a world in which the nets in the books are ahead of them. I feel like all in is the only way to go, but if you're going all in with this team, what is the ceiling on it? That's what hurts because the nets in theory with a full season of those three guys got better. The nets may be with just a full season of hardened and Durant, got better. The bucks by virtue of exercising the demons, they're better. The sixers at best kind of stayed the same except their second best player doesn't want to be there. That seems kind of bad. And that seems like the very, very, very best version of your season is the second round of the playoffs. It's game four at home. We're down two one to the bucks for the nets. We're within 5 in the fourth quarter, the crowd's going crazy and they just went out of ten O run in our seasons, basically over. Yeah, yeah, yeah, thanks. Thanks, Zach. I appreciate being preemptively haunted on October 15th at this point. But the team that haunted me at the end of last season, of course, was the Atlanta Hawks and I'm wondering Zack, when you're going and doing the power rankings here, nets, bucks, sixers, massive question mark, who is that team after? Is it the hawks? Is it someone else? The hawks are my pick to finish third in the east in the regular season. I think the hawks are legit. I don't really even understand why people think that they were a fluke last year. Now did they get further than expected? Absolutely, but I don't know why maybe it's because the players are not big no one names, but the hawks did what they did at like 75% health, the entire time. They had key players injured all season, including in the playoffs, including in the sixer series, most of their players are young and should keep getting better. Their team makes sense on paper and the same thing I said about the bucks about like, oh yeah, we were this good, we accomplished this. We showed up and did the dirty work when it mattered. The same applies to them. Now, I think the hawks will be better this year than they were last year. That doesn't mean they'll get as far in the playoffs. That's the thing that people need to get their heads around. They can be a better team and lose one round earlier, which I think is actually their most likely outcome, but they're my pick for number three in the east. So what Trae Young is at this point Zack and I am a person, by the way, who has gotten tweets from Trey young's dad Rey rightfully so just killing me for saying that Ben Simmons and Matisse table would put Trae Young in a cargo pocket and zip it shut. That didn't exactly happen in the playoffs. I must admit apologies to Rae young. But what is he realistically to you? After what we saw him do, which is own the postseason at times. He is an absolute offensive superstar, and he was that for all of last season. I think the question people had was, how is this going to hold up defensively in the playoffs? He's a bottom, whatever defender in the NBA. He's one of the weakest defenders in the NBA. And we've seen how hard it is to hide a guy like that in the playoffs in the wrong matchup, they just didn't run into that kind of matchup. The Knicks were a perfect matchup for them in that regard because they just didn't they were just not equipped to attack him in that way. Nor were.
Fresh update on "daryl" discussed on What Was That Like
"For now. Mine twins birth was quite an adventure. I was twenty eight years old and was recently separated from my husband. And i had a one and a half year old son. My son and i had moved in with my parents for a short time. Till i can figure out where to go and what we would do. When day my son started getting a cold. That wouldn't get better so after two trips to the er. He was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. The doctors inform me that he had a collapsed lung and would need surgery to remove this tissue that had grown around his little young. My son's dad came to him a couple of times in basically left me to deal with our son for over a month while he was in the hospital. I was so stressed and sad. He was finally able to come home and they put in a pick line that i could administer antibiotics at home for him so we wouldn't have to stay at the hospital. It was exhausting. One night i decided to go meet a friend for a drink after my son was finally better while at the restaurant iran into old from high school in exchange numbers to catch up that led to a dinner. Invite and also said. Bring my son with us. I was so surprised. And i felt like it would be good to do something and get out of the house. At the end of the night we put him to bed and ended up having a little too much to drink and we had sex. I guess i did it a little bit out of spite because i was so angry with my husband and all the crap that we have been through not thinking much about the consequences never have sex with someone out of spite. It backfired big time in my case. I realized that i wasn't into him like that and didn't really to him again for a while. I eventually missed my period. Started freaking out sure enough. I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I struggled with what i would do. I was a single mom with a baby. How could i do this. My life was in no way able to manage having another baby right then so i decided to tell him and he said whatever you do is fine with me. At the time. I felt that there was no option but to have an abortion. That was what i thought would be the right decision. Considering it was still married. And i still had a young son. A couple of weeks later. I was in the shower tonight. Almost passed out and felt really faint. So i went to the hospital and told them that i was about a month and a half pregnant and they did lots of tests in an ultrasound and eventually in for me that i pregnant with twins along with a lot of smiles. And congratulations from the hospital staff. I hated the way i felt. I was torn with guilt so sad. After i left the hospital. I called my mom and i told her surprise. I'm having twins. She was ecstatic me. Not so much. But i knew i had no choice but to keep these two precious lives in that god would help me find a way so i told their dad and he was super excited at first after a few months he sat me down and said i don't trust that those kids are mine and i'm not signing any paperwork as their father until i have a paternity test so that was fine and then the rest of the pregnancy. It only got worse. Didn't talk too much. But i ended up on bedrest after six months because the stress and potty training a two year old was pretty tough and i ended up going into early labor. My body started having contractions and luckily it gave me medication. Stop it thank goodness for my mom. She was there to help me. The goal was to keep them baking in there for at least thirty six weeks. So i did let me tell you. I was so bored being held. But i had so much time to bonders my son before they came so it was wonderful to have that time alone with him. I made to thirty seven weeks. When i finally asked my mom prison spicy enchiladas. i started having contractions at one. Am we left my son with my friend. My mom and i had to do the hospital. They admitted me and said well. You're having these babies today. So i waited around until about eight o'clock in the morning and i called the girls dad as much as i didn't want to. Shortly after that the crazy started. He showed up and was pacing all around the room. He was so stressed out. Apparently he called everyone. He knew because soon a parade of his mom grandma sister and two best girlfriends his two best guy friends. They all showed up in my room. While i'm in excruciating pain in my bed eventually so did the rest of his family. I was so irritated after hours of this. A big nurse to get them. All out of there eventually felt so bad and was in so much pain. And i figured i'd better get the epidermal that took two more hours when it when i finally got it. I was passed seven centimeters dilated. And it just wouldn't work by labor progressed over a couple more hours and they told me that baby was breached and they would need to prep though are in case there were complications. Luckily baby a was in position and head down so she came out with no problems. They assured me that they would be able to probably deliver baby breach if they had to best case was that with the extra room after the first one was born with allow her turnaround so after some cussing and major pain they fit. I was ready to deliver her. I wanted my mom to come in there with me. But their dad argued with her that he should be there. I was so mad. But i said fine really after a few pushes he asked if he should hold my hand or something. I told him. Do not touch me. This is all your fault. So he didn't in a couple minutes later out popped ms mckenna. She was six pounds in three ounces. This baby had dark hair. And i'm blonde. So i was surprised. Then they're judge said my hair. Isn't that dark. I knew that those weren't my babies. I was so mad. How dare he say such a thing at that. Time as i'm catching my breath. They told me that. I had dilated back down to seven centimeters. And we'd have to continue laboring until i got back to ten centimeters. I was shocked. What do you mean. How long is that gonna take. They said well it could be half an hour or it could be hours. We don't know so. They told me and the baby back into the room to continue laboring. I was miserable. A big for another epidurals and they said they had ordered another one and it could take awhile. I'm like what it's still in my back. Just get another dose anyway. The only name that we agreed on at that time was mckenna. I wanted name baby lillian. After my grandma and great grandma from sweden felt that this was a great time to argue with me about names and refused to agree to anything that i liked. The should have been a warning that i would be dealing with this kind of thing from him for the rest of their lives. My mom finally asked him to stop and he wouldn't so that's same. Sweet nurse asked to leave the room. The nurse had left and about two hours later. Felt this big bloop and that baby dropped her head down low in man. The pressure was unbelievable. I told my mom in a panic to get the nurse because she was coming out so the nurse came in very nonchalantly and said that baby isn't coming. But i said yes she has. I can fill her head so she checked me and sprung into action. She flung open. The curtain ran down the hall calling for the doctor now. I'm glad that the and daryl didn't work because i would not have felt her coming. My mom looked enj- said she.

"Two thousand nineteen conversation with daryl hall with partner. John oates hall. An open is the best selling vocal duo in history. They have seven platinum albums and another six gold once they made the billboard hot one hundred thirty four times with mega hits mike man eater which girl you make my dreams come true and i can't go for that daryl hall has sort of second career on television. Two shows live from daryl's house and darryl's restoration overhaul on the diy network. Daryl hall started singing on the streets in philadelphia. So i started at a really young age. Doing you know like busking more. Like the do op. You know street-corner music. There was no instruments involved acapella and all that and it was always very racially integrated. You know that. Whole thing. And then when i went to philly i had already been involved in that stuff and there was this place called mytton hall where all everybody hung out. It was like deplace where the whole temple university wet and people used to stand in the corners and sing. It was that kind of stuff was still going on. So i just walked up one day and started singing along with these strangers. And that's how i got into philadelphia and started Bit at a time when we in my mind. When i think about philadelphia then i think about a lot of racial difficulties in move and historically not not for you. I'm saying the city has always had kind of a racial stratification. It seems like what was it about you that these people welcomed you open arms. I just think. I grew up in a very racially integrated environment you know in pottstown. There's a big black community and my my parents best friends lived right in the middle of the black neighborhood. So i as as a kid. I'm talking like kid kid for the summer. I'd be over there and all my waking hours really. I would be hanging out with white nba kids together. So the music that i grew up with was that our b-e-n-s-o-n music It was really my baby food you know and and it just went that way often. Your dad was a musically and he was a vocal group sang. He sang like gospel. Vocal group and he I learn a lot about harmony from him and my mother was a musician. She did other kinds of music. You know she musicals and she was in a band so very musical environment. Let me just put these cards on the table. Which is you are one of the ten greatest male vocalists and all history of rock and roll. I mean you are and what kills me is like how you've stayed because a lot of these guys have to drop it a key and we interview a lot of my you name it and only you and bano pretty much sound the same now. Almost first of all. I do on stage. I drop a half aquino can i do so i admit it. But but that's that's cool too. It gives me more room to play around up top but the you know voice has changed a lot over the years you listen to those records that i made you know rich girl and all this kind of songs. I'm like a little boy compared to the way i sing. No i have. I sort of have the voice now i always wanted to have. It's that bigger masculine voice. I know and yeah so. But i i like how voices evolved. And i haven't lost any of the stuff that i had i just. It's a sort of got bigger and wider. Did you start singing. When did singing. My mother was as i said she was in a band. But she was also vocal teacher and things like that and encouraged her and she. It was sort of always there and she taught me how to sing. Did they both play instruments. Yeah my mother. Play piano. And i started taking piano lessons around five and took lessons all the way through and then unfortunately was got in Was i once i got into. I was forced forced to play the trombone but that it lasts long but no i've been playing piano since five and then i started playing guitar. Self taught on the qatar. How old were you when you picked up the qatar for maybe late teens early twenty s. When you go then you go to temple the study music y well at first i was going to go. I didn't think there was any money in In in music at all didn't even occur to me and to have a career in music. So i was going to be. I was a. I wanted to be psychiatrist. Why because i was really interested in the life of the mind and i was up against these. I didn't realize my niveau tape that you had to be a doctor. Do his a medical degree. I quit. I wanted. And then i was up against all these kids that were like premed and i failed miserably. It was just horrible i. This is not from the same problem i was like. I have to study chemistry. Just i just want to talk to people. Yeah man what happened. Was i did that for a year. And then i switched to the temple music school and they you know they'll let me in and finished graduate. I finished well i quit. I quit five weeks before graduation. Because i was a student teacher and i was up early in the morning all day doing all that stuff and then i had a a a barg plan. Play music bar band at night till two o'clock in the morning so i didn't work out so well and the teacher said you know we have to choose one or the other and i thought to myself. Do i wanna music teacher or do i want to be a musician for real and there was no choice in my head so i said okay see later by when you leave temple when you when you finish school What happens after that. During my time in temple as i said the whole thing was sorta simultaneous. I was going to music school. But i was also hanging out with tommy bell and People who don't know tommy bell was was the producer and writer behind. Oh a great number of the philadelphia sound stylistics and the phonics and people like that He was very very influential on the sound of philadelphia and he sort of took me under his wing. He was not that much older than me. But but i would just sit around and listen to him right and he was an amazing writer and so i was friendly with him and then i also i. I had a band. The sort of came out of that thing. I was talking about in in mid all and we call ourselves the temp tones. Because we're temple university. Everybody thought it was the temptation. Weird temple and We did a talent show at the uptown theater which was not that far from the university from the campus and it was on what they used to call the chiller circuit. And you know every soul group on. Earth came to the uptown. It was follow. And i used to hang out there and Just like the apollo talent shows and we won the talent show. And james brown's band was the house band back us up. That was i was like eighteen years old. I'm singing baby. Baby with james brown's band back and we won the talent show and the prize. Was you got to record a record with gamble and huff. The songwriters songwriter producers. Who gamble enough. And tommy bell basically created what the world knows as the sound of philadelphia. I did record with gambling. Huff and it came out and and and went on the charts in w das in philadelphia. The army station and I was doing all this while going to school. And so i became part of that whole scene. that's the i started hanging out at sigma sound with studio musicians and i. I wanted to be a student. -sition wanna learn things from them. So that's what. I was doing during white student years. And in the meantime. I met this guy. John oates who are in university. We met going to temple. Yeah we we were really from. He's from about fifteen miles from me. In north wales pennsylvania just north of north west of philadelphia so We were both promoting our singles because he had he managed to get a single to on kenny. Gamble's label He had a group called the masters. And we were both promoting are single at this place called adelphi ballroom and.
Brian Windhorst ‘Highly Doubts’ Ben Simmons and 76ers Can Repair Their Relationship
"Let's get to the latest surrounding ben simmons and the sixers keep pompeii the philadelphia inquirer reports that people in simmons's camp are not inclined to help the sixers find a trade partner for him so given the public criticism from doc rivers after the playoffs and how his name was in the james harden trade talks last season march sign of the times reports that the cavs are one team. That's interested in him so brian is there a chance for simmons to repair his relationship in philly. And if not where do you think he could end up. I've been around too long to say that. There's never a chance of anything. But i would highly doubt it One of the messages. That ben has sent back towards philly. Is that. It's not his job to fix his trade value. It's his job to correct. This trade value raises trade value. That is not something that is on the menu for him and so with that out there. I don't think he's interested in coming in and trying to change the situation and one thing that i think is interesting is that his contract is structured in a way that he's going to get half of his money by october first sixteen and a half million of thirty three million come before he has to worry about getting find a single dime for a forty one of his game. So he's going to have a war chest that he can. Just sit this out. Now i agree the cavaliers and other teams that are really interested in trading for a guy with four years. Left on their contract would be interested. That's also why. You've heard a mike minnesota and even potentially a team like san antonio these are organizations that typically don't do well in free agency and so the idea of getting a star player under four year contract is very attractive but dens value is so low right now and the expectations of daryl morey on a trailer so high we just are not neutral zone for any If any team at this
Charles Barkley Calls out Rich Paul and Klutch Sports for Manipulating the NBA
"Clutches able to come up with a solution to this that gets darryl what he needs. That gets them to a place that he'd like to be in an doesn't adversely impact the sixers fortunes in the east. And you know helps other players along the way. I keep hearing like weird names. Cleveland might have an angle minnesota's by favorite getaway any of their assets the minnesota in sacramento ones. Have that kind of logic of of those Folks in those offices have history with daryl. So you know that there they can have conversations and there's absolutely no reason whatsoever for the sixers do a goddamn thing before training camp before the season starts is the best thing about this before the trade deadline. I mean i think that they're well positioned to just chill for a bit. Here's what barkley said on the mike mass analysis show. He's talked about clutch. Was you know how that group works. They try to trade their players to where they want to anthony davis. They had better deals from boston. Maybe even new york. They're like no he's gonna play with. Lebron is not gonna play. They just bullied. The league team. Got to stand up and say i paid your guy. He can't bully me a trade him and meet and have me take some trash back. I'm hoping somebody in the sixers organization got some stones barkley said we have not seen a team degan before and the quick thing you know. There's a persecution complex of them look for so amid this point the most powerful agent is always the least popular agent. David falk in the nineties was basically presented as the anti christ and blame for every bad thing that happened the league in the nineties. Scott boras same thing in baseball. Everybody had scott boras when you're the top agent near attached to the top guy and you're swinging elbows and get clydes what you want and do all that stuff. You're gonna take shit. I don't like some of the stuff they do at the same time. This is a referendum on them right. What how much power do they actually have. Because in this case philly has no trade.

Like i'm a big deal right. I can't earn my way at the top. You can sorta hate your way is a big deal within plan them the invisible empires they call it now. You mentioned the secret rituals and stuff. Yeah here's a story. You'll appreciate god's honest truth. This exalted cyclops. I district leader. He's getting promoted from is august cyclops to great titan which means he's gonna be the head of the county like we will call a county manager county executives he's very lazy and he did not study his clan craft. You know you gotta take a test and go through a ritual. You be appointed characters position. It study up on it and so the thing was the rights. We're going to be done on the weekend. He calls me up in the middle of the week because he's too embarrassed he's had a month to study up this stuff. He's too embarrassed to call this grand dragon or his imperial wizard to find out what he needed to know what he needed to do because you they were took. Why do you study before you had a month ago right. So he calls me and tells me his dilemma and wants to know what he has to do because he knows i know clansman called you for a crash course in clan ideologies so he could pass his test. This called clamp grabbed. Wow so yeah fame crafts. So i told him and best there must have. I mean every time you do something like that. There must be a little seed where the person goes so. Let me get this straight added. Call daryl davis my boyfriend to tell me how to pass my clan tests. So that i can learn more about how i how were superior and i hate people who look like him like every little. It's like i'm from michigan so this analogy doesn't make sense in california but it's like when there's cracks in concrete and then you pour water in there and the water freezes it cracks. Just get a little bit bigger every single time. That's gotta be kind like that sort of yeah phenomenon. It takes a while to connect the dots. Yeah but it happens it happens. I think we've gone quite overtime here but in in closing here i'd love to get this sort of bit about space age times and stone-age minds. I'd love to kind of get that and maybe we can wrap with that. What he think. Whatever you like. Yeah well what i've said before. Is this that it bothers me a great deal that we call ourselves the greatest nation on the face of this earth. Now there's nothing wrong with being patriotic and loyal. And i am very loyal. I am very patriotic. I love my country. I does have its flaws but we are progressing and we will get to where we need to be at some point so i'm not i'm not saying anything against the country but we have to admit that there are some flaws here. I don't adhere to that statement that we are the brightest. Maybe i would bend in say that perhaps technologically. We are the greatest. After all we americans put a man on the moon. We invented that technology to put. Neil armstrong up there on the moon before anybody else and while neil armstrong was up there walking around on the moon making that famous statement one small step for man one giant leap for mankind. We were able to talk to neil armstrong via satellite radio. Phone all the way earth. All the way to the moon we americans and vented that technology. Everybody who's who's going to watch this podcast or listen to it. Every one of them has email and have a cell phone type of few words. Few numbers hit send. And you're talking to somebody right next door to your state or halfway across the country or even anywhere on the planet anywhere in the face of this earth. We invented that technology. So how is it that we as americans can talk to people as far away as the moon or anywhere on the face of this earth but yet there's so many of us who have difficulty talking to the person who lives right next door because he or she is a different color a different religion a different persuasion a different whatever or they are a family member seated at your dinner table who voted for a different candidate. And you can't talk to them anymore. How we can do that. Though that we can't carry on these conversations it seems to me that before we can call ourselves resignation of physical earth. Our ideology needs to catch up to our technology. And when we get both of those up there then we can truly brag about how great we are. so this is the twenty first century. The nazis racists nonsense does not belong to any century let alone. The twenty-first we are living in space age times but there are still too many of us thinking with stone-age minds. Daryl davis thank you so much. This is fascinating man. There's a lot. I'm sure there's even more. You're continually doing this right. This isn't like a done with. this is absolutely. Let's call this part one. You sometimes report to you. Know what are you currently working on. You're probably got a lot of friends that are sort of teeter-tottering on the edge of leaving. Whatever the clan or whatever. Other group does your. They've joined but what other products do you have going. I mean there's a documentary lincoln. The show notes. You've got a book. Are you redoing the book. I know it was a. It's been a while. I just finished second book. all right. is With my agent. Now i'm working with people like jeff scoop and beyond barriers helping him and others come out of that That radicalization and working in preventive work work with him with a group. Called parents for peace would have allowed to the parents because your kids have been involved in different kinds of things great organization on other one called parallel networks. Which is run by my good friend. Jessie morton jesse is a former al-qaeda. Extremists wow yeah by the fascinating story. I can fix you up at some of these people. That would be great. I mean al qaeda is a and nazi groups and things like that. I mean i just wanted on now. I'll be happy to. And i work with him and his group. He knows a lot about extremism and that kind of you know jihadi extremism and white supremacy. There are some parallels there in as to why people join those those groups at how to get them out at people who've been in these roofs they know their recruitment tactics to bring others in so therefore they know how to get them out as well. People jeff scoop jessie morton on what we can organization called fair which has come up with a new learning standards to address a lot of the controversy surrounding what kizer taught about racism in schools. You know is good. Crt and bad crt and you know fair is trying to get all that cleared up. So i'm happy to work with a lot of these. Different routes plan continuing to meet with white supremacists and speak to them. Go to their rallies. Try to do what i can do. My part to bring our country together and make this the greatest nation. It should be hell. Yeah thank you daryl so much this is really really interesting and we'll talk to you soon. Take care thank you. He found this episode interesting. Here's a trailer for another episode of the jordan. Harbinger show with maria kondakova. Who went from being someone who had no interest whatsoever in to raking in big bucks as an international poker champion. Here's a quick look inside. Poker is actually the perfect game for human decision making. Because it's a game of incomplete information. No one cares. Where the hell you went to school. No one cares what you look like. No one cares what you did or didn't do if you can afford the buying great so there are people sitting.

Daryl Morey on the Sports Analytics Revolution
"So me pawing at this sad window like a hidden aside daryl. I do want to explain the monster. You've created here because the mit sloan sports analytics conference is very well known inside our industry but it is far less stone outside of it. And you and your co founder. Jessica gelman got it going fifteen years ago. Basically in the spirit of moneyball and the spirit of what someone like bill. James did in exploiting data defined undervalued players and strategies and every year you bring together researchers and sacred magicians and wants but now you also get all of these powerbrokers to somehow agreed to be on panels. And i'm talking about owners and athletes and coaches and executives and world leaders like barack obama who was the keynote speaker. One year recently. So i'm just curious first off what sort of thing is stuck in your mind after you wrapped up the conference. Last week. I mean this year. I jumped on the nfc panel actually learned a lot because we had the like the head of mba. Top shots ahead of so rare mark. Cuban who has more More free time than than us to to focus on this and i think teams are obviously the. Nba is out front at the sports top shop. But i think it's just the start of a nba teams exploiting what crypto can do for them as well. It's very confusing to people but I think everyone knows what a barcode as. So if you could have put a barcode on literally anything and no one could copy it. And they can always always know and look up that it's your thing that's been bar coded and that's really all it is you. Can you can really. Nf t anything. The certification estimate The actual item. Nf t could be a combination of physical and digital.

"Still a need for veteran defenseman. Then that allow not only the guys that are with the kings with the guys and one -tario again a little bit more patient so there's no need to rush these guys because last thing you wanna do is you want to put a player in. And if they don't have a lot of success they start to lose their confidence and it becomes a it becomes a very negative type of thing and You don't wanna do that. You don't want to take away to take that away from a young player so you want to continue to encourage them. You know to drive forward Get better and you know one. One real nice thing is that you know practicing in the same building as the kings they get to see the kings on the ice and then the king's management and all the development people are watching them Watching them grow so they're they're auditioning each and every day last question before we let you go. The rain signed adam johnson to an age contract. He's got at about a dozen games in the nhl and maybe About one hundred fifty. Two hundred games at the ahl levels been playing in sweden. He's twenty six years old. How important is it for this group of young forwards to have guys like brett sutter. Devante smith pelly now. Adam johnson To to help you know buffer. This incredible group of young talent is really important You know. I remember as a young player coming in. You know those. Are the guys that you gravitate towards. You know those guys that you look up to The guys who've kind of walk the walk and walk and talk the talk minnesota speaking you know they back it up with their actions So i think they've got some good role models for these young guys to you know to aspire to be like whether it's the guys that are on the actual rain or the you know the guys that are on the kings of they get a chance to see in practice with each day because of the way things have gone this year with having a taxi squad. These a lot of these young kids have been exposed to the nhl guy. So it's it's been great for them to have those guys to kind of mentor them And you know any time you can add a veteran player. Too young core players You know like they done now That's going to help the rain. And i think it's just you know. Just take a little bit of an edge off their you know just mighty only it might not even be the actions on the ice and might be something that might be said in the locker room by one of these veteran players. Will you know it'll just kind of hit a light switch for these young kids so I think The organizations doing a good job at making the decisions. A you know pregnant knows veteran guys into to create an environment for the young guys to be able to grow In a comfortable way well you mentioned one of the advantages of having the rain play in the practice facility for the kings but from my mind the biggest advantages that we get to hear you doing the color commentary from time to time on the rain games. It's a ton of fun. Appreciate you daryl. God bless you jesse..
Is a ton of psychology just ... wrong?
"How much of psychology is wrong. Do we have do. We have reason to assume. That tons of psychology is wrong Yeah so ten years ago researchers started to notice and to really get you know worried about some really rotten things going on. At the core of a lot of psychological research it led them to really question and rewrite a lot of assumptions. And since then there's just been this kind of huge fight. It's really a crisis scary. Okay where where do where do we start here. Let's start with the psychologist. Who's been working on this problem for years. Now i'm seen vizier. And i study how we can do. Psychology better so mean said like this crisis really started getting going and twenty eleven when this one paper came out. That had some really weird claims in it. Yes so it was a paper claiming that people have esp like predicting the future like esp. Like sci fi knowing. What's in people's heads. Yeah this paper was from a psychologist named daryl bem interesting and he wrote up a lot of experiments. This is an experiment that tests esp. It takes about twenty minutes and is run completely by computer. This is the language participants read when they sat in front of a screen on each trial of the experiment. Pictures of two curtains will appear on the screen side by side. The computer would put a picture behind one. The curtains and behind the other one would be a blank wall. Your task is to click on the curtain. That you feel has the picture behind it. If participants guessed correctly them took the as evidence that they predicted. The future. That espn's real

"Us men's soccer out of the olympics. Okay again third time in a row. The under twenty. Three's losing honduras. Wall national team grana politic players could have played in the under twenty three rule the olympic and beat northern ireland into friendly. So what's the major malfunction here and how big a deal is it the mri olympics for men's team clinton. I think it's a big deal. I mean listen in development circles and soccer just embarrassing. People think a so called. Soccer should have more creative midfielders. Who can actually finished the hansen's more regularly but more daryl decay is what we want. That dude is a monster catholic. It's a big deal because we won't get to see our young stars at the olympics but it's not that big of a deal because we are developing young stars. We have a guy playing for chelsea. We've got a guy playing for juventus. This is
Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?
"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home
Single, wealthier US women increasingly bought homes during the pandemic
"Purchased by single women accounted for 17% of sales. And that's despite women being disproportionately impacted by the pandemic pandemic has been unequal across income levels. So the people who are buying homes right now whether they're men or women or people who are more affluent. And the kinds of women who were able to afford a home before the pandemic. They are going to be the ones who are more likely to have cut their jobs. That's Daryl Fairweather at Redfin D. C. Is one of a handful of cities were single Women Buyer's account for a large share of the market. One of the trains were saying among areas where women make up a larger share buyers is that they tend to be places where women have a lot of education. DC falls into that category.

Amazon Workers’ Union Drive Reaches Far Beyond Alabama
"This hour we are talking about the union drive amongst amazon warehouse employees in bessemer alabama and. Why people in the world of labor and In modern american business are paying very close. Attention to how workers in alabama might vote As it could change a lot given the size of amazon the corporation now amazon is so big that we're kind of also informally launching a series. Hear about all the ways in which amazon is changing all of our lives so focusing on labor here today. if there's an area of life that you think amazon is changing and you'd like us focus on You know hop on to social media. Twitter facebook at on point radio and let us know what you'd like to us to look into or you can also give us a call at six one seven three five three zero six eight three looking for your ideas on areas of life that you want to learn more about that amazon. Might be changing. I'm joined today by steven. Greenhouse he's labor and workplace journalist author of beaten down worked up the past present and future of american labor karen weiss is also with. She's a new york. Times correspondent covering amazon microsoft and the pacific northwest's tech scene. She's with us from seattle. Now karen we heard from michael foster the union organizer there before the break. I wanted to ask you more about the the one of the fundamental things. He talked about which was worker. Dignity pay is one thing but worker dignities another and i think amazon's got a pretty long list of Of incidents if i can call it that where does lead one to questions of how they view or how much they the importance they have of warehouse. Worker dignity right there was they. Fires warehouse workers who spoke out about insufficient safety protocols regarding regarding covert in two thousand and twenty We've heard we've read stories. Maybe you've even written them caring about like response to being used to monitor warehouse workers and all of that. How does amazon see see people. Why think a lot of a lot of this is workforce is so large that it has almost by necessity but also just by the amazon. Ian nature tried to create Systems and rules and technology to manage them. And so when you heard. Michael talk a lot of things. We're talking about rebellious kind of technological. Productivity measurements and tools and operational tool amazon has to manage. Its workforce you know Student brought up a good point earlier about unions aren't necessarily a third voice that's that they've representative workers and i think i was free support the amazon. That's a third voice but same time You know it has ways that it listens to workers now but it's not the same as having the workers voice representatives through a union and so for example. They have boards in voice amazonian brussels onboard. People can complaints or compliments not different things but the way they use that at a global level is they use artificial intelligence and natural language processing to figure out matic patterns in it so they they had to and also broke out of bear amazonian techie. Way have developed these kind of technological relationships with workers which is which is different than how even the walmart's an immense growth. What was fifteen or so years ago when it went through. it's huge. that's a different relationship numb when you the feedback workers get is often from rate ticker essentially on their on screen which is different than being a cashier in a store and bringing people up karen that is so fascinating. The algorithms are absolutely everywhere. Oh my gosh. So here's here's basis in two thousand eighteen in an interview with business insider talking about why he says he's proud. Not only of the wages of amazon pays cause remember two thousand eighteen. There is a minimum of fifteen dollars an hour but also how he says. The company treats its employees in our view. We have we have workers councils and we have very good communications with our employees. We don't believe that we need a union to be an intermediary between us and our employees but of course at the end of the day. It's always employs choice. And that's how it should be steven. What do you think. I'd be surprised to hear that amazon. Actually has workers councils. That's you know. And if they are workers councils than i imagine they might be handpicked by management and with the union the workers pick representatives and under federal law executives are required to sit down and listen to the workers concerns. Yes amazon says that it listens to workers but it's really unclear the degree to which they really listened. I remember years ago. I wrote walmart. Walmart would say for worker has a complaint. We have an open door policy. Come in and complaint show us. And i interviewed many workers who use the open door to file complaints and then they got fired soon after and they said the open door policy is actually the out the door policy. I'm not saying that's the case amazon. But i think you know. Some companies are so much cynical when they say they really listen. I'm sure karen has spoken to amazon. Workers who have heard who have voiced the same complaint. I hear say they feel like they often feel like robots. I interviewed a worker at the best. My warehouse daryl richardson. Who said he's a pickering to three hundred fifteen items our that's five items omitted and he says you feel like a robot and if you fall behind you risk getting fired several workers who said and if we have to go to the bathroom run a few hundred yards and take a few minutes to do that We might fall behind and that and if know and if you've got to go to the bathroom a whole lot in a certain day might end up risk getting fired so they feel that they're not listened to enough and many feel that there's a lack of dignity in the pressure that's put on them every
Sportswriter Zach Lowe on NBA Mid-Season Leaders
"Where. We are at the midway point of the nba season. And that means. I have questions for you about the utah jazz. I say the utah jazz to you. Right now what comes to mind a whole lot of threes there making these every time you know checkup jazz box score at my brain just glances over twenty two thousand from three leg. It's just nothing there number two in defense in number three or something in offense. They do profile as championship contender. Like they're the best team in the league by record right now. Are they the best team in the league to you. While the comparison that that's become sort of commonplaces they're they're the new sixty win hawks. The team that was built to win a lot of games regular season pretty ball movement side to side movement. You don't really have the star power to compete against lebron james when it comes down to it in the playoffs but i don't think they're just sort of blake a regular season flute so the way the jazz are playing right now. It reminds me not just of the hawks as you said but also a kind of mutant version of the houston rockets simply because of the sheer volume of threes. Does that comparison sounded all right and also does that comparison than invite the questions about what happens in the postseason. If shooting a bunch of threes doesn't go as well as it did in the regular season. That comparison does not ring true to me honestly just stylistically. They're so different. The volume of threes is similar. Like they are taking a houston. Daryl morey level volume of threes. But they play so differently. The other comparison is brad stevens. I think the first one to give voice to this is to two thousand fourteen spurs which is kind of like. That's that's i don't want to say that out loud well to an mba hipster fan to an emmy afficionados. Let's put it that way kinda sewer. What does that specific spurs team. What does that evoke in your memory. It almost has this sort of religion. Level reverend yes. Everybody loved watching that team. Anybody who was at games three to five of the finals that year when by the beginning of game four we were all looking at each other. Like all my god. They're just going to destroy the heat and to compare any team to where that team reached. It just feels like talking to a pitcher in the seventh inning of a no hitter. Something like you just don't want to say out loud but that is a comparison. People are making looked at jazz. Their undoing in the playoffs in in previous seasons was day would very much like the hawks. Actually day would get a lot of open threes and not make them and you could look at that and say well. We did everything right. We just didn't make shots. Which is what. Every hawks team including that one said after the playoffs. And so yeah. The three point volume is similar to the rockets. And that's a little scary. The team that this discussion has occurred in the context of is the lakers. As you said as it must be the defending champions and so when you look at the lakers right now. I want to get to lebron specifically in a second but just them without anthony davis and how much they've struggled most recently losing to these jazz and blow out. What is that revealing to you or confirming to you about what this team needs to actually content. I think like any team. They need their best players to be healthy. I i'm pretty low on the lakers panic meter because it's not just anthony. Davis who you know was first team all nba hill assures. Anthony davis is not like some borderline all the best players in the league. Dennis schreuder is maybe their third best player. I think kyle kuzma is kind of the claim that mantle disturbing might be their third most important player. Because he's the only other guy. With the exception of some frisky alex russo games entail. Norton tucker will get you some. You know some stuff done now and then but he's learned other on ball creator the other the other guys threat to score or pass to somebody else. Yeah you take them away and it's like oh my god. Lebron has to do everything and and you know he's probably getting a little tired and even though he'll never say it the only thing that will make my panic meter go above like three point. Five on a one to ten is if we get news. At davis's injury is lingering or more serious that we thought it was then if they're healthy in the playoffs yeah. Competition in the west is is probably better this year. Particularly if denver finds whatever gear they had going in the bubble. There's going to be a lot of really good teams in the west. You could get the one seed in the west and play the warriors. You could get to play the mad. I mean it's it's just every round is hard there. But yeah i i can't i can't get too worked up about it right now. Yeah the western conference meet

Taking Care of Mama after a Baby
"No matter how many children you have had their you've adopted or how to surrogate adding another person to your family is an incredible experience and it affects everyone in the household not just for a few days or weeks but in our home we're coming on almost two years with our fourth child which i believe but it feels like we're just really all settling in took a while to integrate the more the more people who are here it took longer to bring forth little one in and my first suggestion is to listen to momma. She knows best. You are the one who will have the inspiration for what you need to take care of yourself and you can get really hard to listen to yourself. I work with a life. Coach named natalie clay and she recommends that you listen to the self chatter. It's kind of a behind the scenes. Talk that narration in your head. That's going on throughout the day. So listening to momma after having a baby is listening to the narrated that you're tying yourself. Are you telling yourself that you or your partner should have specific roles in the postpartum journey. So you might be thinking your head like why. Isn't he getting up in the night. Or why is he getting up in the night. Does he think i can't do this. Are you doing yourself that you should be producing milk or breastfeeding in a certain way Are you telling yourself that your body should be healing a certain rate like. Why isn't my c section scar closing up war. Why am i not wearing jeans with a button on them. You know i. I have more energy to nice. Should be back to my regular life by now type of right. Maybe you're thinking other people are thinking about you a specific way. Typically they're not. My dad always says something. If you knew how little other people were thinking about you you would stop thinking about what they're thinking about you because they're so busy thinking about themselves so true the most humbly thing but i just wanted to give an example. I remembered for my first delivery. So i had my first baby and i was gonna deliver with a midwife and i was going to be so hippie with no epidurals. I'm an all natural mama. And then the baby came and i would never dilate after days of contractions so i got a in and that i still never dilated. And so then they gave me daryl and then babies still wouldn't come out so eventually they rip out with forceps and i was like left with a gaping hole in the bottom of my private and it was a horrible horrible description. I'm sorry i parts but that was also a horrible first delivery and like it was weeks and months of pain. Am i had a family member call in. Invite me to a party in extended family member she said. Oh hey can you bring something. And i was trying to like advocate for myself. You know until. I was like hey i don't know if i feel ready to bring something really something the matter. She was being sincere. And i said will i'm still i'm still healy. And she said from what and she had multiple children and had never had the experience like me so here. I am in a situation where i for. Good reason could stop there and think. Oh she is telling me that. I am being dramatic and that i should still be healing. Will she wasn't doing that right. So not self chatter started right than in my mind but what we can do is we can stop right then and check in with yourself and say hey. What am i telling myself about this situation. Am i allowing myself the time and the ability to have a different experience than someone else. Yes you know what. I think is interesting specifically about childbirth. Is that because so many people have done it and are doing it all the time. Sometimes we can minimize our own experience in. just think. Well all women do this all the time. I should be able to just bounce back. I'm a wimp or we can even do it to each other like well. I've had a baby too. And i didn't take that long to recover and we can sort of start to minimize each other's experience when really we just need to realize that every time this happens it is a miracle and it is a trauma to our bodies and every woman is going to experience it differently and that way we can sort of have our own back and say. It's okay that i'm healing at a slower rate than my friend but that we can also have each other's back and just say you take as much time as you need because this is hard stuff we do as women. It may be that women are doing it every single day. But that is it's hard stuff we're doing every single day as
How Joel Embiid Became An MVP Contender
"Also derek. Last season ended in pretty disappointing. Fashion for philadelphia. That'll do it. The boston celtics move on by defeating the seventy sixers. Four games to nothing. The first ever went wrong in that first round against boston for embiid and the sixers. I think a bunch of things went wrong. First of all. You can't start without saying this. Ben simmons zone. Outside of that sort of what went wrong was wrong with the sixers all year. The team didn't fit well yet. Al horford and josh richardson. Who were tough it's around a post op center and embiid. Richardson shooting for three ended out. They didn't have a real reliable second often times during the series alec. Burks was your secondary options on offense recipe. Brad stevens and the celtics and bead romeo leg for the rookie thinking about double vacates birds. Who can't make them pay. So there is a lot of mistakes that were made roster building and there were missing. Simmons isn't it was a tough series for sure. Can you remind us what the narrative was after that first round exits surrounding joel embiid and his performance. Yeah it was fascinating because on one hand when they came back into the bubble they had spent pretty much those months in between working with you all to get better at handling dull teams and it came out in the bubble in orlando during the seeding games and some of that had started to show and he looked like he was handling double teams better and he came out against the celtics. And i think that he converted back a little bit in terms of struggling with the double team and bead backing down ties gordon hayward on the help and they come up with the steel but he was dominant as an individual score. That was locked off and be. Did it again. Safe focused joel. Fb five of seven. Give him thirteen of his team's thirty one. We'll lifesaver on that. So i think a lot of people looked at you made steps. He did most of what he could do individually. He just didn't have enough help around him. Well that disappointing end to a long season led to a number of changes within the sixers organization. Can you take us through. Some of the moves that philly made in the off season and how they related to unlocking the better performances from joel. Embiid is off the front office. Obviously brought daryl morey To work above. Elton brand and then they brought in doc rivers replace brett brown and then you had some pretty key addition to traded al horford for essentially danny green. And then josh. Richardson for steph curry. And i think those two editions have been pretty big with joel. Because i think if you look either trade you'd say the sixers got the lesser talent but the fit and just having to players in curry and green. Who the other team can't leave has been huge for. Joel shoe autom- double wall and pass. And you miss accomplish you. Miss a lot of shots You just straightening and then you start thinking of all you gotta do everything by yourself. 'cause everybody's not made the shots. Richardson horford they were not only inconsistent shooting. If they are unwilling shooters and they'd hesitate any office. Which is kinda come grinding down to a halt not only is curry making his shots and all these green making his permanent shots. But the ball is moving around the perimeter. Much quicker than it was. So there's more consequential doubling joel embiid than there ever has been monarch got a lot of assists but Ogle gets one us open. Invite double or triple team has a lot of hockey else's shake milton hinton to downtown ten points and ten minutes off the bench make no mistake that play which about drawing the double and then the ball moving east gotta be willing to be content. That the ball's the swing opposite and he's gonna creative for shots teams are now left with a real choice whereas before i think the whole strategy just send you all need help and disguise it a little bit senate in different locations but if you send it frequently enough you're going to confuse joel embiid or the sixers aren't going to have the talent or the players to make him pay. I think that's changed now.
Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy
"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.

NBA Fines Philadelphia 76ers’ Daryl Morey $50,000 For Tweet About James Harden
"Last of basketball operations daryl. Morey is getting in trouble with the twitter again all right. He's been fined fifty thousand dollars for violating the nba anti-tampering policy the finest in response to a to a december twentieth tweet about the houston rockets superstar. James harden obviously gio more used to be there. The tweet was deleted several minutes later. Celebrated the one year anniversary of heart and breaking the rockets franchise assists record more told the league. It was an inadvertent post from an automated app. Now more was hired by the seventy sixers less than two weeks after resigning as the rockets manager. And obviously he. The sixers are one of the franchises that have considered trading james harden john. Do you think that maury deserve to be fine for tampering. Here for that. Automated tweet just congratulating james or the one year anniversary of breaking the record. I don't think he should have been fined. But let me say this. I think adam silver is the best commissioner in sports. I think he's super smart. I think that daryl didn't endear has been a guest on our show. Many times may mason. And i both loved daryl. I think daryl didn't read the room here in other words. Tillman for tita. And the rockets are in a mess. Right now with harden. He has their best player. He wants out. Everyone's connecting the dots saying that darryl would love to have him in philadelphia so for darryl to poke that particular bear at this time is a bad look the way this went down and tell me if you agree is as soon as that tweet happened. Somebody in houston called the league office and said this is bs. Were in the middle of trying to navigate a crisis down here. And this guy's congratulating a player and making us look bad. And i think the league had to react at that point and so i wouldn't have find him but i understand why the league did. What do you think yeah. I think i was surprised when i saw that because i thought his tweet was pretty harmless. But i think you're right. I think that that you know james. Initially when he first asked for the trade didn't really have any representation. Okay didn't have an origin at that time is he's always kind of just like his mom and he's he's since tapped into wasserman those guys'll so he's got different representation now they can handle things but initially. There was a lot of consternation amongst the rockets. When darryl was interested daryl's sixers darrow. Were interested in trading for him. Right you know is there. Was there. Contact with darrell. James like there's this. There's a lot of stuff that really doesn't smell right with the rockets and the sixers and james harden and so whether this tweet was made it on time serving. It's just he. Daryl needs to be way more careful and the whole automated app. I just. I don't know if i buy that. I don't know if i bet either. I so i understand. Let's just say this ninety probably ninety eight percent of the time out of silver gets it right so i think that there's probably a backstory to this that all of us don't know and darryl poking the bear in houston at this particular time was probably not the smartest move. But it's not money they're owned by a bunch of hedge fund guys in philadelphia. It darryl can afford it. I think it'll probably go away now.
"daryl" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"I think like the number one thing that I would change about these two players is Joel embiid can't shoot anymore mid-range Jumpers. That's the that's the number. One thing that I want to see change if that happens, this offense just goes up to a completely different level because he bails out defenses over and over and over again in part because he's out of shape I assume watching on television So I think that that's just another intriguing wrinkle hair and docks complimentary value to Maury. For sure and I also think it's interesting though because DOC WISCON- getting criticized by a lot of clippers, followers and writers analysts because he wasn't following the analytics and the numbers right? Like he was playing Montreal Herald even though he was playing terribly in the lineups were performing poorly with him on the court during the playoffs he was in playing Zellerbach enough. Like I wonder you know in a different power dynamic if Maurice, the GM, the clippers, he's looking at all this stuff in real time that might play out differently right. There might be like an edict of like look you have to do this or we have to do this. This is going to be our path to success. was there anybody in the clippers who could kinda get that message through to doc or Docx out final? Say I think that will be something that we could track here I'm with you on the mid range shooting. This team absolutely needs to cut the fat out. And so I would expect that if they do keep 'em be to be sort of you know one of the very first steps for them now. One of the questions nick had here was, will Elton Brands Promise that neither superstar will be traded this year? Become a moot point. I think on that one. Whether or not they actually do it I think. I mean, if your team traded for Darryl mortgage, if you were a player, wouldn't you just assume that anybody could be traded the very next day is in that sort of his reputation that kind of comes with them. I mean, I. Don't know if he needs to come out and make some sort of a statement if he really is intent on kind of following through with Elton Brands Promise but. You know if that's the organization stands for whatever reason. But I guess if I were a player on that team I would just assume that I would be traded at a moment's notice. If I was a player in the NBA that's what I would assume. That's what you have to assume and but if don't, you think it's a little bit more pronounced with him. I mean I think they said seventy seven trades during his tenure in Houston. Kind of the second most during that time period, he traded all sorts of stars including Chris Paul who clearly thought he was blindsided a at. The at the moment that that happened go back and other just really quick changes of direction with high profile level players like I guess if I'm Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, I'm going to be like Hey Elton I'm not gonNA get traded and it'd be like, wait a minute Elton Brand told me I was wasn't supposed to be treated me like Oh Yeah Daryl Morey of course I got traded. Yeah. I. See your point for sure I also think that going back to the question. is Elton's promise that neither superstar will be moved a moot point. Yes it is a moot point. No one cares what Elton brands say anymore like it's like, no. You wouldn't bring in. Daryl Morey if look at Daryl Morey, if he were to say publicly that he's not trading either guy..

And cut in northern California somewhere and is really stayed out of the limelight completely maybe he's still getting paid I. Don't know. Doing some consulting or whatnot I like Sam as a guy I just I just always reluctant on these full-throttle analytics gus like I got no problem give me some numbers to support what I see I'm all for it. I'm all for it but ultimately when you start with the numbers and. That's Canada basis and you're not looking at things like chemistry how the pieces fit together which I felt like. Daryl more never really did well, he just went for the big name, the big Guy Westbrook and harden. Yeah it's like I get they were fine. They were fine but they're never gonNa win a championship and maybe again maybe in Houston and you're just thinking you know what we just got to be able to to get to the conference finals if we can have a good year and just compile as much talent as we as we camera. have hit a ceiling at Houston with this group right? There's no possible way they win. Win Win fifty one the next season will be seventy two so they can win forty, five, I guess. But let's yeah. I agree with you, and of course, we just come out of a baseball controversy about analytic state the ultimate you know wow, you know we could. I mean, that's your analytics to run..

"It's just hard to picture like the best version of the players that they're supposed to be coming out anytime soon because we've been waiting and waiting for those guys to come I, don't know personally if I was sixers ownership the best reason to sign their Omori is because he's got so much cash that he can treat anybody on your roster and you won't Piss off the fan base right? Like if Elton brand trades, Joel embiid. Batteries are flying people are not happy right because he's probably not getting a good deal Daryl morey trades, Joel embiid. It's like well, look maury trades anybody he's crazy. He's the traitor. He knows what he's doing. He understands assets better than anybody in the League we're going to get a great package back fits going to work better. You're going to get those kinds of arguments going so I don't know I. I'm ruining for fireworks here because I think fireworks are needed for that team to get anywhere meaningful and I just it was so miserable to watch them last year. If they try to run this thing back, I'll be so disgusted well. My whole thing is like. It feels like it was sixteen million years ago but the Jimmy Butler era was pretty recent and so. That teams bowlers not walking back through that door. Now I understand that but my point is that when you have Simmons and you have Joel Embiid if you are able to add sensible pieces around them and in my okay and they do not have those sensible pieces. I think that you can still win a championship. So like for example, your strategy, your strategy would be to try to build a big three around these guys to say look you know the problem is in one of those two we believe in those two. Quality therapies who complements them well enough, and then fill out the the margins around that Rosser. Something that more we tried to do a lot in Houston I'm sure people remember the Chris Bond. pursue the POW gestalt pursued. I mean, the list goes on and on he was always a butler Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Mellow Anthony Am. Yeah for sure and it's funny because he really got stuck on with two stars like repeatedly right and he kinda got lucky with PJ. Tucker, almost being like you know the star of all role players to fill out his big three there and it worked pretty well for them So I could see a path towards that I. Guess The the question there is I mean has Elton brand done so much damage with the salary cap sheet that. Getting that third stars like functionally impossible at least here on the short timeline. I. Think you know. I would I would imagine that Darryl did not take this job unless he was told that his budget is going to be pretty high and so the luxury tax is not. not an enemy and not a barrier and buying second round pick stuff like that is going to be an option on the table and trading away someone lake like viable or attaching him to someone like Tobias Harris and trying to get off of the Harris Contract will be tenable by ownership. So if that is true, then I think that it's a little bit. Easier to to kind of reshape and re tinker around Simmons and Embiid, and then I also think that we haven't mentioned doc rivers yet and look a lot of the problems that were in Philadelphia past teen years where cultural and about accountability and that starts with an not I don't mean to be so critical of Brett Brown who I thought did a find enough job but. You Know Simmons and embiid were kind of running the show there and they were very little accountability. So they they had heard enough right I mean they you know they heard every story and it worked for a few years and it was time for a new voice..

Today. . We're GONNA hear Darrell Story and learn how it is that he threw his empathy compassion insight in bravery has been able to really embrace a methodology that allows people from opposite sides to come together learn from another become friends heal and grow welcome Daryl. . Pleasure. . To be here with you. Thank . you for having me. . It is such a pleasure. You're . such an extraordinary human being sorry to embarrass you. . I am so excited to be able to share your story and your insights today. . My pleasure and I hope you'll listeners will enjoy it. . Thank you. . Why don't you begin by telling us the back story to how and why you are able to penetrate the clan? ? Okay. . I'm aged fifty, , two currently and as a child, , my parents were in the US foreign service. . So I spent a lot of my formative years starting at the age of three. . And on through elementary school traveling abroad living in various foreign countries, , you go to a country for two years and you come back home here to the states, , and then you're reassigned to another country. . So back and forth back and forth during my formative years while overseas my classes in elementary school and things like that were filled with kids from all over the world. . Anybody who had an embassy in those countries all of their children went to the same school. . So my classmates were Nigeria Italian Russian Japanese French you name it they had an embassy there I was in school with their kids and to me that was the norm that was my first exposure to school. . and. . So when I would come back home at the end of the two year assignment, , I would either be in all black schools. . Black and white schools meaning the still segregated schools or the newly integrated ones like. . Well I left. CHICAGO. . . Shortly after I was born but we will come back and we would be like in Washington DC or be in Massachusetts different places for a short time before being reassigned every other two years. . So I was back I know I was for part of Second Grade I was back for a fourth grade. . I was back in sixth grade and I was back here in eighth grade when I would come back the schools were either all black or black and white meeting still segregated. . Or newly integrated, , and there was not the amount of diversity in my classroom that I had overseas. . So in one case, , I was in fourth grade nine, hundred, , , sixty, , eight, , I was ten years old and I was one of two black children in the entire school myself in fourth grade and a little black girl in second grade. . So consequently, , all of my friends were white and many of my male friends were members of the local, , Cub Scout Group and they invited me to join which I did. . And during a March we had from Lexington Concord to commemorate the ride of a Paul Revere. . Suddenly I was being pelted with soda pop bottles and cans and Rawson just debris from the street by just a small group of the white spectators on the sidewalk not everybody most people were cheering us in waving and all that kind of thing. . But there were about maybe five people off to my right I remember there being a couple of kids or half a year or two older than myself and a couple of adults who are throwing ends, , and when I first began getting hit and looked over and saw this my first thought was oh, , those people over there don't like the scouts. . That's how naive I was because I had never been to. . Before and it wasn't until my <hes> scout leaders came rushing over and these were white people, , my den mother, , my cub leader, , my troop master, , and they huddled over me with their bodies and escorted me out of the danger. . And I realized I was the only person being targeted because nobody else was getting this special protection and I, , asked him, , I, , said, , why am I being hit why they're doing this? ? I didn't do anything and all they would do this kind of shush me and rushing along telling me everything would be okay. . Just keep moving. . and. So . they never answered the question. . At the end of the day when I returned home my mother and father who would not at the parade. . were, , fixing, , cleaning the UP, , putting bandaids on me and ask me how do I fall down and get scraped up I told him I didn't fall down into the mud happened. . And this was the first time in my life that I heard the word racism they explained what racism was to me. . And my opinion old brain could not process this definition. . It made no sense to me whatsoever I'd been around white people from all over the world at this point and none of them whether they were my fellow Americans my French friends, , my Swedish friends, , my Australian friends, , none of them treated me like this. . So my parents were making this up because people don't do things like that. . And they assured me that not all white people do this but there is an element of some they do and I just cannot wrap my head around it. . So I didn't believe them well about almost two months later. . That same year nineteen, , Sixty, , eight. . On April the fourth Martin Luther King was assassinated. . And every major city in this country burned to the ground. . All in the name of this new word I had learned call racism. .

"I don't even know like once a week at least when I'm trying to analyze analyze NBA teams and what decisions they should make and how they should be operating and functioning like I love that if you even if you only have five percent chance of winning it all that you should go in all in do whatever it takes. Because at the end of the day winning is what matters. And that's one of the number. One things I really respect about Daryl like even when Golden State was at the top, they get Kevin Durant they look unbeatable. All these other teams are kind of like punting on the next couple of seasons with their decisions and Darryl's just like now I'm trading for Chris Paul and Yeah we're going for right now like I loved I loved everything about that. It was the right time to that was the thing because everybody else was was punting. Paradise in two, thousand, sixteen, and seventeen when the warriors look completely unstoppable everybody wants to be Reggie, roby and Darryl goes completely the other way. Okay. GimMe just off the other names. On your top five like for me, I do have Danny I've got him prestige I. Think I mentioned the size number one. Darrell for me is no lower than four would really have to sit down between him Danny and Sam pressing decide where I'd ranked those guys. But for me, the big takeaway is he is clearly the best executive available on the market right and I, think he will be no matter what even if he sits out this entire upcoming season and tries to come back the following year. You know some people might try to compare it to a Sam Hinkie. I mean, remember a lot of the things that were saying about Daryl. Sam Never Proved Sam never had it a functional relationship with the media he struggled with the communication aspect he struggled with the culture building he struggled with. You know some of the buying with the superstar level players during their careers properly, he knew how to do the asset accumulation. Right? He knew how to do the trades. There was a lot of aspects of Daryl's portfolio in terms of skills that Sam did have, but they also have a lot other stuff proven that Sam never did right. So to me, he's like kind of on a tear by himself guys as good as Daryl. Don't come along very often, and so if I'm an owner right now I am looking real hard at my gm spot and I'm saying look I could get this guy for the next ten years. We could be one of the most winningest franchises just like he did down in Houston, I need to think about how much do I really really like a my current front office set up and now my willing to kind of go for it and I do. Think. There's a lot of GM's who who's jobs are going to be not on the line, but they're going to be evaluated this coming season because Darryl is out there looming we'll see if he wants to come back and continue his NBA career. He's obviously going to have some other things he could pursue but I trust that he's competitive enough that he won't throw in the towel quite yet who else was on your short list anybody I didn't mention. Yeah. I have three names Um and I agree with all the guys that you you. You mentioned on my list as well. I'm I'M GONNA give some love to Bob Myers..

How about you have more guys beat the shift by going the other way instead of saying. Nope, we're going to keep swinging. We're gonna hit into right field here. You got a double down the line. Yes. Mclovin. Yeah. But there is all of the shift is guys is trying to hit home runs over it means more home runs. More walks, they don't throw fastballs. The guy it slows down the game, even more, you know, because these big left handed power hitters just like forget a shift. I'm just trying to homerun. Are you pro or anti shift? I'm anti shift. I say you set a rule like the NFL where players have to line up at a certain spot. I do say hate the shift. Okay. But I don't like guys who intentionally found somebody. You can't. Shoot free throws. But my in mice is how about you make free throws? Then they won't found you anymore. I know but it the worst one guy rips aligned drive to the deep second base.

When it comes to all the rain and our Kanta markets, you know in Oklahoma. Obviously, we have had a lot of rain. We've got a lot of wet sloppy conditions. That are a management headache for producers. We've had some localized flooding that may be an issue a little bit more seriously for some of these guys, but most of that at the at the management level. You know, we've got prospects for lots of forage, but we need some warmer weather. It's going to be hard to put up. Hey, if it stays this wet, so those are challenges grazing out weeds a little bit of a challenge in this kind of mud, but you know, then a little broader context for cattle market speed lots around the country are really dealing with a lot of wet sloppy conditions probably impacting performance somewhat. But certainly is again a management issue for for those for those operations to to deal with this. And then the final consideration that I think livestock producers want to keep in mind is simply that, you know, from crops standpoint, we're way behind on planning corn. So far this year, we go another ten days or two weeks without significant progress and planning corn, and we could start to see some weather markets, really impact. Those corn prices at least as a as a weather. Threat.

Are you aware of his basketball musical small ball was not until today? All right. So tell Darryl Maury him about small ball and tell the audience real quick about small ball the basketball musical. I believe there was the sex in. It wasn't there. Sex with giant physically. Yes. Yeah. There's a country that is newly discovered and wants to watch the join the international stage and get on the map. And then so they decided to start a basketball team.

And then you find out it's the island of Lello put that's rediscovered and everyone's six inches tall. And and they're trying to win basketball games against the likes of Croatia.

Would you like to hear some as long as Daryl's not singing to we want to have sex with giants or no with between four and six how to bring the parts into compliance?

What are you? I mean you've made some contributions to this game. And I know you've you've been fairly modest about some of the things that have changed and you've been at the forefront of but aside from what you've done in terms of turning around Houston and getting them to win more games.

Well, I would say this, and maybe Daryl can can comment on why he thinks this is a case it, I think the most interesting thing with your team is you guys have actually played fairly well against the other good teams in the league. And you're under five hundred against teams with losing records of what do you think is the reason for that? Yeah. We're encouraged by that actually we have the best record in the NBA. I think we're seven and three some of that is locked. I mean, you know, I'd like to say that's all just our team. But we don't we can play with the best and mainly like when we played the teams that maybe are lower on the table, which we were recently. You know, we had players out and things like that.

And I think the NBA Rosa how to answer that. 'cause they're on another team right now. So I couldn't couldn't say that. Unfortunately in the wizards.

I, you know, I get so much informed debates. It's really, really helpful. The debate people on Twitter found, well, I'm, you know, a lot of people say Darryl that NBA Twitter's the most entertaining Twitter that is out there Twitter's good. It's politics, Twitter that needs to be avoided at all costs. I think there's a filter for that and I or or calling into the rich Eisen show at this very much. It's a good way to avoid all that. So I'm, I'm glad that you have called in what. What are you up to these days? What does what does Daryl Maury do for the Houston Rockets at this very time of year right now, I'm sitting in a bar outside. I can get quiet background at practice or shit that we're.

I mean, it's a pretty active to your point NBA Twitter right now given camp just started usually usually not. Much does that there's a lot of lot of lot of trait buzz in the air guys to say that I wanna I kinda wanna hit that with you, and I know that it's probably a sensitive subject, but it word is that you are in on the Jimmy Butler sweepstakes is that a fact. I carry just directly address it, but I will say, I mean, obviously, whatever there's whatever there's players potentially available that can help you know the Houston Rockets. It's my job to explore, but I would say we love our team. So I mean, I, you know, we're, we're pretty focused on what we got, but you know what else am I doing? Except trying to explore everything that's that's really what they pay me to do. Well, then let me ask you this question based on what you might be able to talk about. Do you think Jimmy Butler is in fact available? Do you think that they do really want to get rid of him up there in Minnesota, if you can address that. Yeah, unfortunately, like the NBA rules are so so. So yeah, I can't. Even. I can't talk about players on other teams. Holidays. I can't make news today. Maybe I could go against you in the football, you know combine or whatever that might make see, that would be great. So the match. So to use the analytics of this is full blue tar skis zero point, zero of you being able to dress the situation I could out enough to you. I think I could new new lows. So you out of the okay. So in terms of the guys that you did acquire that are there under contract, you told the Houston chronicle that a high percentage of the decisions you made this off season?.
