"Thirty footers. You can imagine two guys who are ahead of you damian. Lillard steph curry right wing. William see those guys make shots. If you're watching sportscenter you're on league pass. You're watching a game and you see got you see those two especially making shots from the logo from way out in you may have made one from to feed in the night before or from same general area. Do you all the different ways you with guys in the league. Do watch those two nc where they're making shots from think about. Let me see. If i can get that spot tomorrow or or do i need to like. Do you look at that differently than anybody else does. I don't look at it as competition type a day like on it and range and who shoots further. I kind of look at it as a mean. It's not very many people could shoot. Shot a mean with consistent consistently at a at a pretty decent high percentage and I don't know when those guys shoot it. I always think steph is is making it dame shoots so consistently in So often I mean every time he shoots. I think is going in from that type of range that i watched those guys shoot it on a ton. I've watched him since. I was in high school. So yeah they've been done for When did you start getting yelled at in high school for trump for for taking that shot attempting that shot. Were they going in right away. And so no one could say anything or did you have to. Did you take some heat. When you kept moving back out there then it oklahom- it was going in going in pretty frequently. My sophomore year proudly that was. That was probably with my coast. Stop freshman year. I eat and let me take too many of those but a day my sophomore year on a couple couple of those deep deepens on He definitely start that year. But ever since then it's been it's been history talking about the grind of this season you're going to have another shortened offseason. Going into training camp obviously will be shorter for the teams who advance further in the playoffs. It might leave the olympic team without you know some of the all. Nba veterans who might have in other years decided to play. Players are all still deciding what they wanna do whether they want be a part of it can they withstand the grind of going to tokyo playing for another extended period. Is it worth it with the off season if an opportunity comes you to be a part of that olympic team. Is that something you would still have interested. of course. of course. I would emea. I feel by growing up. I missed out on. Like i miss on opportunity not making their hoops summit when i was in high school and then misnomer on a couple of usa teens for me anytime on presented opportunity to represent my country I will and so if i got present opportunity to do that. I would definitely considered and We'll see where it goes from there. You out at the camp. I guess three years ago right three years ago when they had Three years ago they had the minicamp. Yeah in vegas this to two years ago you went out. I think he had that. I injury and had to leave a couple days early What was that. Like all those guys in one jim a like. You've got the young room you've got the older group that's there what was like what was walking into that environment like into that gym. You know they give you the. Us a penny you go. I think the select group and under the senior group would you remember about that experience It was it was different It was a it was a weird experience for me because for me i felt like i should have been in the other gym This just being honest. I felt like my talent level. I should have been in the other gym plan with the. I mean having a chance to compete on that for the national team spot and it was motivating for me Although i hurt with the injury i had to leave early. But i think he was motivating for me going into next season and i think that that's kind of using us from it but it was it was a really good experience Like i said. I felt like i should have been in the other gym. Compete with those guys. You will use your level trade. How often you spend trying to find slights like that in lead. Try to leave vegas a little pissed off and say okay. This is something. I'm going to take and get myself going again. Like most of the greats have that have that intimate. I think especially players like you who maybe were told your because of size or rankings or wherever it was People saying okay. That's not going to work the next level. Okay that worked at high school. That's not going to work in college or you can do in college. But you can't do that in the nba. I think you been kind of painted that way at different times. Do those all add up for you. Keep finding those things to keep pushing you forward of course. Of course there's always there's always going to be something there's going to be something for me. It's it's just use it as motivation is little things like that. That people may not know to to later on down the road. When i'll bring it up but in that moment i'll i'll paint that picture in. Its sticks with me forever. So that's like. I said i was one of those moments in on a definitely out. Adept more Trae i think for eighty player I think certainly for any any player in the league but any young player like it separates you when you get a signature shoe deal. And so your agent. Omar wilkes called you one day and i'm sure these deals evolve over time they don't just call you and say hey. They offered it to us but there comes a point. Where adidas wants to do that with you and you look at the list. You know who. The players are gotten signature shoes. Dita's it's is lowered hardin derrick rose and donovan mitchell. Who's a little more of a.

"omar wilkes" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"Him out and me thanks. Lebron knew he had seven points and said guys. I think i've got one more shot in me. Because he went back in the game hit hit his one and only shot a corner three to get to ten points then they called another time out and now he's out a month so i'm not saying that was a higher degree of difficulty and more clutch shot than jordan's against utah. All i am saying is that was game six. That jordan did his. They were going to have a game seven. Even if you missed lebron was going to be streak over. It's been working on the streets since two thousand seven and any nails. So i'm just under saying this. Add that to the luggage bar. His suffers a second injury. Ever has the self awareness. I need to hit a three to get to ten point. I can do that even though. I basically have a broken leg. It's like tiger. The masters broken legs. I won't make that leela. But i think it is a fascinating point made by nick riders if what people are saying. I'm hearing what i'm here. I'm hearing it's more. It's like the ray allen shot michael jordan shot and lebron's three in the corner against the hawks in the second quarter in march. I think that's the list all right if that's how it lands for you. It makes me happy. Nick right first things first. Pleasure to see you buddy. I do appreciate it. One more herd the herd streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio app. Search her to listen. Live or on demand. Whenever you like. I think about that. When i think why alabama quarterbacks don't work to and aj mccarron jalen hurts was not considered a prospect when he was at alabama now he is out of in oklahoma. But here's a great example. This why all these great quarterbacks who signed with these ohio states these. Usc's and these alabama's don't become pros because it's not a real experience. You don't have to overcome. Think about this. Here's the colleges of the eight division winners quarterbacks last year for my radio audience wyoming miami of ohio. Texas tech old dominion cal. Texas am purdue and wisconsin not exactly football powers. Texas am thinks they are they're not wisconsin's good not great. That is where all by the way. The guy went to a junior college. The texas guy started as a wide receiver. Okay that's not random. That's not unique. That's the way the league works is if dak prescott go back Mississippi state terrible offensive line. Got the crap out of him for multiple years at matt ryan no. Nfl players. Philip rivers nc state. So when i look at mack. Jones never trailed in the second half of any game this year. Wide receivers three of them parole players offensive line best in the sport. I remember when matt liner came out of usc and he stayed in extra a year and a lot of people criticized. And they're oh my god. Why wouldn't you come out and you're giving up money you. Could you ever get back. And i remember. I remember talking about this on the air at the other place i was like i think he's got a better life like usc was so dominant. He rarely got hit. He was the big man on campus. There was no pro- nfl team in town. I'm like yeah i get. Why comes back. He's living the great looking kid. Dominating college football cover of magazines like why. Go out a year early to a terrible team. Go enjoy your college experience. Like i get it. When you play quarterback at alabama. It's a very enjoyable experience. You always lead. You always have the best coach. You always have the best or second best offensive line you never trail. There's rare crises. I just think. I don't think that's the way you get ready for the nfl. I just don't think it is. I think drew brees was overlooked in. Tom brady had to sit on the bench and it. Just i mean the last quarterback who was like a blue blood. That worked was peyton manning. Great in high school and college. Great in the nfl like it. Just it was all perfect. We knew he was going to be great. And he's great cam. Newton went to been junior college down in the south. That's just the way it works. So i do my questions with mac jones. It's now again if he goes and gets kyle shanahan. All bets are off or it gets bella check. All bets are off. We we know that he's going to have good offensive lines with those two coaches. But i do think there is something to be said for struggling early in your life and it being a great advantage later in life as a parent. I'm always like my kids. Have a better life than i did. And i think they do but i don't wanna i don't know i don't want him to every corner have crown. Molding and granite countertops. I want buy a new car. I'm gonna buy used car and you're gonna have to go to the shop and take yourself there and i don't know your first apartment complex out of college should not be beautiful. Mine wasn't it's like take out your own garbage. You know. I don't think grooving somebody's life it in the moment. It feels great. But it doesn't set you up for the hardships of life. And i don't think it sets you up for what the the nfl is. The nfl is hard. It is hard. It's hard on a good. I mean brady screaming at people. New england get open and alabama.

Akeem hicks the opportunity to seek a trade. He's making ten million dollars. He wants a lot more. Here's the issue right now. I got back to ryan pace. The only reason you're team has been good or competitive last couple years is your defense in. He argued was better than khalil mack. Last year. he's one of the key guys. Like your offense sucks. Andy dalton has your quarterback. You need good defensive players. What are you doing i i. I can't overemphasize enough. I think ryan pace just lost. I don't think he gets it. I really don't jon gruden. Younger is nuts. he's crazy no rhyme or reason. Anything he does. I've talked a lot about them in the last couple of weeks. I'm not gonna spend too much time here. But yeah i just. I backed like ryan pace. The strength of the raiders last year was the offensive line. So what do they do. They rent rodney hudson. They get rid of gabe jackson and they trade trent brown now. Trent brown been an issue. I don't blame them for getting rid of him. But you're gardner center like what trying to do buddy. You ain't winning with defense defensive roster you'll stink. You had a power running game because those two guys are fucking bee's.

"He could probably be a first pick to all of a sudden. He's in the top. Three mix and eagles are trading up for him so not having the senior bowl not having a combine. that's That's a it's a. It's a missed opportunity. Unfortunately but again. That's not the reason not to draft him. It just makes a little bit more of a challenge when you try to figure out okay where to see Where does he stack. Especially in a class like this. Where there's a lot of other quarterbacks with lawrence. Zack wilson justin fields jones so plenty of options at quarterback in his class. You mentioned that i'm curious. Is lance your number three guy or do you have fields ahead of them. It seems like everybody has lawrence one wilson to. I guess not everybody. Simms has wilson one but most people have lawrence one wilson to is it lance or fields. Three for you. You know. I think right. Now i've got feels three lance for but those guys are next for me I do think lawrence Isn't clear top guy. And zack wilson. I you know back in the fall. I kinda put it out there that this guy's got a chance to be the number two quarterback and you know it really gonna come to fruition. I talked to people. Run the league. It they love that wilson. They're really intrigued with what he can do. That skill set and then three and four. That's where it's interesting. Because i think you have just field lance both have a lot to offer a physically talented. I think it really comes down to figuring them out mentally. Where are they in their development With justin feels what he was asked to do. In that ryan day offense compared trae lands when he was asked to do with north dakota state very very different and so three and four to me are very close. And then you've got a matt jones who eat all its nationals. Is difficult because you know you have if you list that what. You're looking for the quarterback position you know the traits you start with decision-making inaccuracy those are one and two and mac. Jones has that So it'll add. Think you have to look at everything else case. He good enough in these other areas. Where he's going to be a guy that could be a starter for us and so h teams looking at that differently. Some teams that have a more established roster going to be more interested in him while some other teams that Need more out of their quarterback. They won't be as high on the alabama quarterback so it really interesting dynamic between these quarterbacks and how the teams are going to view them. Kinda crazy i mean you probably know some of off the top of your head dame. Aren't there some power five schools that have had a guy drafted at all and like twenty years at the quarterback position. Meanwhile north dakota state is going to have a second top ten guy in like six years. It's gimme a couple of programs off the top of your head. I'm sure you know a couple that haven't had a guy. Drafted are drafted high in a long time. Well state was like the higher state. Had not had a from quarterback in a long long time but for dwayne haskins In the obviously ohio state is cream of the crop. When you talk about recruiting you talk about college level players And they had not produced a you know a high level quarterback You could go back to the seventies and you know they. It's interesting because North dakota state has really done a great job identifying these guys and developing them and that goes back to what they're asked to do. What the the of their quarterbacks in terms of during the week in preparation really really impressive. So there's a lot of programs you know even before last year with two of you look at alabama and quarterbacks to they produce not a lot of high level quarterbacks even during the nick sabin era too was the first first round earned a while. There's plenty of top level college programs. That have not produced a type of quarterbacks in north dakota state has here's we gotta do you gotta check out dane on twitter at dp. Check out all the stuff. He's doing for the athletic. You can hear him earlier this week.

Did you see by the way that video you guys see. The video was ian. Poulter was with three guys. At the nineteenth hole they were a combined plus twenty nine yesterday then the pga tour put a tweet out like polls like this is what they're all having a daddy soda and he said something like this is what you do when you're a combined plus twenty nine on the first day of tournament they're all just sitting there drinking. Beer why do we like it so much especially golf when they do poorly go ahead. Paul there was a golfer who put four drives into the drink on a par three yesterday. And you both cringe. Oh that's that's how i would do. That's how i would be on that hole so it makes them weirdly relatable for a couple of minutes. how many. How many shots would it take for you to hit the hit. The green was it the seventeen toll where it's like that little island of land surrounded by water it. I guess it would be just luck if one of us you'd probably be in your own head looking all that water and we just swallow you. What do they do. What do they do with the balls like there has to be thousands or millions. They had like a big net underneath there. There's got to be mike. Grandpa my pop up. He would jump in. Go seeing yes you know what it is to about that whole. I think it's not so much hitting it. It's getting it to stay on right. I think we could probably hit it. But it's just going to bounce over you know that it's getting it to stop and just stay. You need to do like the arc thing where hits and then spins back a little bit little english on the seventeenth hole. Hello friends all right. Play in a day. I already know what i know.

He is gone biblical. I'll have that for you coming up here in a moment. we'll get to your phone calls as well. We bring in doug. Gottlieb hosted the doug gottlieb show on fox sports radio fox. Sports college basketball analyst. Doug joining us from indianapolis as he's doing the big ten tournament on Campus radio recapping. What we just heard duke game against four state is not going to be played because somebody on the staff team has tested positive for covid. We don't know that but it feels like season is probably over. I'm wondering about the rest of the. Acc tournament here. Doug what what's going to happen here. I don't know. I mean you have to have contingency plans because you know you have contact tracing and then what happens with anyone else who came in contact with but what would you ask the question or they done done. I was just texting with jeff and the logic is again not contact tracing. Its somebody has positive test right. So that means there's the there's a there's a quarantining. And i'm andy where they moved all the big ten teams here and then the big ten teams that advanced determine are going to stay here for up to a month and of course they have the extra the tournament's going to start a day later you know again so that there's a little extra core in it's it becomes a bubble but i mean this is. This is part of the issue. I guess my question is this. I understand that for responders and senior citizens Need to get the vaccine. Why are we not back stating which somebody explained that Adams overcame out. So we're not gonna make our players get back stated i've talked. Nba coaches nba players. They are generally getting vaccinated. You know without without broadcasting. It just don't understand why we're going. We should go to all these leaks but if he hears something that people don't know so i i did the so con- conference two days ago three days ago and then the cia. The team that loses still has the test for five days season normally done like mercer mercer lost at unc. Greensboro testified days because if greensboro has positive tests greens. greens doesn't go mercer. Does go if they don't have uh uh tests it's it's it's just a wacky year. I was on the one year anniversary of sports down and here do is the biggest program in college basketball. Losing any chance of postseason because one positive did they need that win over florida state to get into the tournament. Yes yes. I mean look louisville helped but they had an initial bump their late in the season but it just it wasn't enough you know they're just they had sustained too many losses and people have to understand that the acc is really down this year. And i'm like look. It's really hard to tell a lot of things like louisville for example. They played wisconsin this year. With i think six or seven guys. But they didn't have four stars so they lost by fifty two wisconsin. This is around christmas time. It's hard to tell sometimes results who actually is good and then some of these teams have come out of two three weeks core team and they play a game and they're not really representative of. That's why i wanted to get. I wanted to come on and say a couple teams out there like oregon people should bet because they're gonna be massively under seated because all the litany of things that went on in their season but this obviously trump set how did do get here in. The first place dog feels like they had a top five recruiting class. Don't they have a top five recruiting class every year. Well you have to understand. It's it's different as a couple of things that went against. Okay i have you know the top three freshmen in the country right. sucks goes to jail. Suds goes to gonzaga. And then kate cunningham. Instead of going to north carolina or kentucky. He goes to oklahoma state. And then you at usc. Has evan mobile his dad's on staff and he goes to usc. So you cut out three of the top five top ten then you have three or four more who were going to college or maybe what. Jalen green for example and they go to the g. league night. So you basically cut out the top ten from kentucky and do then you factor in you know you lose your point guard You know you you lose your they. They're not taking the the depth of transfers and other people are taking And the just you. You don't replace. It's really hard when you can't replace stars with other stars and now the sudden your same places everybody else. And then you throw in the corner teeny and some of the stuff. And they're not alone. This is kentucky same thing. They made some made some bad choices in terms of who they've taken. But i think this is a big story in college basketball in the blue bloods normally feast on those top. Ten top fifteen guys now. They're recruiting fifteen to twenty five fifteen to fifty and those are good players but they're not the type impact players who come you know. They're not zion williams kate cunningham that jalen green not kids. I can just carry you to an ncaa tournament. They don't have those guys. And that's that's why kentucky's down that's like cancels down. That's why do is down. It's because the players were anything else. These teams that won't make being tournament. Can you see them going through the on it. I mean i would mean more basketball right like all these guys say like you know you go you g page. And their ball is life guys out all wanted to his hoop but the reality is probably not number last time kentucky you into the. It was a abject disaster you. It's like when an sec school gets left out of the college football playoff matches no shona bowl game in some guys opt out. I guess now against and people don't know it's at north. Texas super pit can have sixteen teams in a bubble. It actually pretty.

Ok so imagine you are one of the lucky few who threw accident. Fate or design managed to keep your power for some or all of the winter. Outages you're not a super great place because the people who did have power found that their bills skyrocketed skyrocketed is not the right word gerbils launched into orbit they space rocket. Yeah and you know it it. It follows the concept of supply and demand. But you don't typically think of that in terms of like things that people need to survive as as that being a calculus and yet here we are. There's a little bit inside baseball here. But here's what having one megawatt of hope was called. Wholesale power went from fifty bucks to nine thousand dollars of wholesale power. Something that business will buy and then they will sell it provided to consumers. So this wouldn't affect you if you add what's called a fixed rate plan. That's a very common thing here in the us. You're basically as a customer forced to gamble with power company. And you you can make one of a couple of you can make a couple of types of bets. One of the bats is saying. Hey i will pay this much per unit of power all the time. And i'll do that for twelve months so if there's a surge in price or demand i won't have to pay more than my you know thirty cents or a buck thirty five or whatever but if the price goes lower than that dollar thirty five i still have to pay the dollar thirty five. So you're kind of in a casino with the power company. I always wondered. I mean i guess it really is up to the individual but dc about the benefit here was was alarmingly apparent but in general What would you recommend. Then i'll tell you all. I'll give you my opinion i've been i've been officially paying power now since two thousand in four so i've been paying separate power bills since two thousand four I have attempted to the variable style once. And it's the only time i had to pay ridiculous amounts of money for power And did the same thing with heating bills. Only once you got me once never will do it again. I've always felt that fixed rates seemed like the safest bet. And i'm a fixed rate man myself. Yeah agreed again. These are personal experiences. Mileage may vary but there are power monopolies here in georgia. So you ha- you are forced to deal with them. And they want you to gamble on and i i personally am not a big fan of gambling and i do think you could say nbc hyperbolic or whatever by describing it as this but it is. It is gambling. And i had experienced like you matt Variable can work if you like astutely time it and you pay attention. Close attention fixed rate. It's kind of like you're just paying more for the certitude in the predictability so Fixed three is pretty good. I think a lot of people in texas were unfixed rate too. So let's talk about the people who will with a variable rate I don't know what the smallest of place all of us Listening today have ever lived in his but there was one woman in texas who had a seven hundred square foot apartment pretty small. She was keeping it at sixty degrees. She didn't lose power for very long when she got her power. Bill it was one thousand dollars. This is this like a by design. Are they really thinking. People are going to pay this. Are they really going to hold people to these absurd bills. Is it supply and demand or is it price gouging. It's always an accident like let's just. The bill is not an accident. That's how much the energy costs when they were attempting when they're going through this crisis. If energy was being supplied to your home the supply demand. Baby it's messed up. It's really messed up. We can get into that a little more as we get to the conclusion here but yeah the the big thing is that a lot of people dealt with something like that huge in the thousands bills that were coming due and ultimately as we'll see this will have to be decided in the courts i think one guy was talking to nbc news. And he said. I have a two bedroom home. My power bills usually one hundred twenty five to one hundred and fifty bucks but this it's more than three thousand dollars which caught me by surprise. I am editorializing a little another family. One really extreme example. Another family told the same team at nbc that they were able to keep the power in their home which had three bedrooms and then they found their bill ended up being ten thousand dollars and the price. Gouging didn't stop. there didn't stop with power bills because remember. This is a crisis it will. Yeah and i get that. And i understand that this crisis for the energy end of it to the provider but again it's it's kind of their fault So it doesn't seem fair that they would pass this onto the consumer. But i guess that's what utilities do But would they have been notified. Would they have just known this happening from. Maybe the news. Like like i just i just feel would have been in the responsibility of the energy coming to say. Hey heads up. The this is about to get real expensive right. Yeah it's tough and also we have to remember. It was happening so quickly. You know what. I mean zero. Prep time but as we record today. Texas officials are cracking down on businesses. That have been accused of hiking. The prices of food and water and hotel rooms especially while the state is still battling through the shortages That were caused by these storms. Like people were going to hotels not even nice hotels. They're finding the the price of been hyped up to nine hundred bucks because folks who pay it There was like there was something. I found especially wholesome in a very disturbing way. There was a store like you know like little grocery store or a gas station that had closed down because of the storm and because they didn't have and some locals have been like breaking into this place to get but then they started paying on an honor system. And so there's like this pile of cash on the floor and a nice little like a nice. Not which i thought was a really. I thought that was a really human thing of a compliment but back to the water. More than twelve million people found water service disrupted more than two hundred thousand people in texas live in areas where water systems were completely non. We've got especially in rural texas. We've got a lot of people who have wells and generally. I think that is an awesome idea. But we had some folks contact us and say you know we thought we'd be okay but our wells are wells. Were frozen nord. I mean we're not on the grid. So what can we do can access that water if it's all locked up in ice well there's an additional thing they would like depending on where that water is coming from when that well where it's you know. Words dug into just imagine all the chemicals and stuff that are going into land across parts of texas. Yikes because of what fracking mostly That's right that's a good point because the fracking is still in the chat. Very much off rack you the fracture and this is where we get to Some much needed levity here Something happened in the ensuing information war narrative war That would be hilarious if it was not so so very dumb while people were dying. Several pundits and politicians in the beginning of this crisis tried to blame the power failures on renewable energy specifically windmills. That's right they are the villain of this story big wind which sounds like a street name for someone who is flatulent but this is really easy to disprove. I know we all saw the clip spoo- honestly may be twenty. Three percent of texas energy comes from.

Your very next thing is to figure out where you're going to find potable water the you can. You would be surprised how long people can survive without eating and without having permanent damage to their system from doing so but dehydration will rock your and you can die with in four days and this. Your mileage may vary. There are people of of course. We've all seen survival stories of people who managed to stay alive but they didn't thrive past that point and you are very much on a ticking clock the moment you realize you can't find water.

Going down there windshield one of those tanks. i guess burst and that stuff exploded out and it's frozen and it looks like literally like some kind of magical cave fairyland or something but way more terrifying and and sinister and then you know. You can also see heartbreaking accounts of people burning. Whatever was flammable in their house like furniture and so on to keep Their kids warm People sleeping in cars or charging their phones off their car battery trying to find where water is in any emergency situation by the way Once you have found some modicum of physical safety nor vary next thing no matter what. Your very next thing is to figure out where you're going to find potable water the you can. You would be surprised how long people can survive without eating and without having permanent damage to their system from doing so but dehydration will rock your and you can die with in four days and this. Your mileage may vary. There are people of of course. We've all seen survival stories of people who managed to stay alive but they didn't thrive past that point and you are very much on a ticking clock the moment you realize you can't find water. Please take it seriously even if you think you know even if you think i'm camping somewhere and there's clearly marked trail and i can walk half a mile to the parking lot. Just take some water with you. You know what i mean. And we'll last thing to add here. My uncle lives in a very nice area and on our previous episode. We'll be talking about this situation. It was mentioned at least rumors that power was being sent to very wealthy communities before it was going to be sent to anywhere else or like diverted. Well we're there was an inequality in in power distribution depending on essentially zip code or a neighborhood or something like that. I can't speak to all of those. But i can tell you been my family's house it is lovely isn't a ridiculously nice area. And they still lost power justice frequently as everybody else share. And i don't know exactly where senator ted cruz lives. But his house apparently got cold enough that they decided to piss off to What is it came coon. Yeah and we'll We'll look into that a little bit later in the episode to before we move on. I wanna thank Miles be nathan g jacob d and a number of other people who reached out to us to give us their experience a during this massive catastrophe jacob Especially noted noted something that one of by relatives in austin noted which is that people's odds of having power did seem to be better if they were if they were around something like emergency responder building or a hospital something like that jacob. You also noted that the story from urquhot kept changing as as wind power would be restored how rolling blackouts would work. Excetera of the said encore was giving updates like oh power is going to be on fifteen minutes. Your powers on not power was not on right. And there's there's kind of a fog of war with this to you. Know are so many moving parts. but here's what. When the power outages began natural gas plants utility scale wind turbines coal and nuclear plants. All of those started detroit meaning. They fell off the grid because they didn't have the investments necessary to keep them online during sustained low temperatures. They just couldn't function this way. Even if there wasn't a surge in demand for power like that's an important note even if it had just been the storm and dare had not been an increase in demand for energy. A lot of these facilities still would have failed just because they could handle it. That's why urquhot that's their logic for ordering utilities to institute rolling blackouts Which are probably familiar to enron fans in california if there are any ron fans left after after their massive debacle. And this is a big note that been mentioned here. I just want to make sure we're not going to go over too quickly. These were all sorts of different types of energy generating plants if no matter what you're reading online or what anybody is saying this is it is affecting all parts of not just the green sector. It's not just coal or natural gas or whatever it's everything across the board was being affected so the logic here is theoretically sound urquhot says look we have to. We have to kind of cut off arm to save the body temporarily right. We're going to strategically reduced temporary demand through a somewhat arcane process that is very vulnerable to corruption. Or maybe some phone calls from powerful people asking little favors anyway. They said by reducing demand at certain times in certain areas that would be able to prevent the entire circus tent of texas electricity from collapsing. And that's a rock and a hard place. Honestly if the entire grid failed then texans would have been without power for weeks even months and it could have affected All the other pieces of infrastructure right including water treatment. But that's a hard thing to square when you are in the midst of a ruling outage that was supposed to last for like a couple of hours and it lasted days at a time that happened to millions of people. We're gonna pause for a word from our sponsor and then we're going to dive into the unpleasant story of people who did keep their power for at least part of the time doesn't in the way you suspect pay i'm gabrielle collins period drama nerd and you're behind the scenes guy richardson on brigitta the official podcast.

"Trae young stay with US trade. Do you remember the last time. Maybe the only time you and I have been in these. Espn Seaport Studios Yes. It's crazy 'cause last time I was here. was draft day Early in the morning. crazy day but yeah. That was the last time I think it would have been drafted draft day. Two thousand was it in seventeen. It was it was a morning of the draft. You were here with your dad. Ray Your agent Omar Wilkes from Octagon. And you were here doing all the morning shows. You're doing get up. Maybe sportscenter morale was here. Jay Bilas we're in there and I remember standing in We have those big windows that overlook the river there. Remember saying there with your with your agent Omar Wilkes and I think your dad to trying to navigate that night of the draft and I think I had reported the day before the draft night before the Dallas was was interested in trying to move up to get don-shik and I knew Atlanta was kind of in the driver's seat there. Yeah you know with the pick and that was a You you think. Think back to that draft and that night like how much uncertainty there was right until you the deal came down just as third pick was being announced I think they were. They had the support of the agreement. Yeah no it was. It was a a lot of a lot of different things. Being said BEF In the morning Omar. I was telling me different things. They kind of just let me enjoy the day and having my dad where we're talking I guess they. I kind of figured figured out a thought that the trae was going to happen between Dallas Atlanta early on in the day and They didn't want me to enjoy all the different theories. I was doing the media days I had going on This enjoy the day and didn't tell me until literally the third pig therapeutic was was made so The the trade had happened. So yeah I think like Travis. Lincoln and Donnie Nelson and mark. Cuban think they were hashing out like the details of. I always felt that was going to happen is that they went on because I because I knew Atlanta wanted you travis. Link from the very beginning it's scattered throughout you were his guy and Dallas Dallas felt strongly about Luanch and they have always you know their history with Dirk and they've always been partial to international players open to the idea and it always felt like they were going to get there on a deal but they don't get there till they're that was the night to remember with the hats right people. I I know that bothers bothers people that you like. The traits happened. But it's not been called into the league so everyone always gets flustered. You're wearing yeah. I wrong hat. Yeah I mean it's this kind of weird so now every time I look back on draft day or you look back at the video you see. Megan call them walking across stage. Mass Hat He's walking across stage with the Hawks as was kind of weird different. But it happens. I think is exciting after lead to to do that whenever on draft night But now it's definitely weird trade fourth in the League in scoring twenty seven point eight points fourth in the League in assists eight point five. I remember when you were coming out. mark Kriegel from. ESPN did a great piece about you. And and your dad. Ray Remember one of the things you you said. Was I want to lead the league someday in scoring and assists right tiny archibald is. Done it yeah. Top foreign both in your second year. Yes what about where you thought you'd be. I think so. I mean I knew I had a chance especially how hard our off season To do some some big things as a share I worked extremely hard and yeah no Archibald only one who's who's who's I think he's the only one who's ever done it and and I owe myself to a high standard so for me. It's so about the workout. Put it in the off season in the confidence. I have so Yeah I indepth can see myself when doing it. Trae six and twenty one where the hawks are right now. You're almost in about the same spot last last year. The one common denominator no John Collins this year with the suspension last year with an injury. Think you felt this team was ready to take a step up like people were talking about. Hey this is the league past team. Probably not a playoff team yet but this is going to be a team. People WanNa Watch every night people watch watch for you but when when you learn of John Collins a suspension and he's GonNa lose you know essentially from beginning of the year till will you know through mid late December here. Is this about what you expected knowing what you had left knowing what it takes seeing going through the league once what it takes to win. Yeah now it's definitely tough is definitely todd losing your best players on your team. He's He's a mean he's continuing to work now to get ready for when he gets back to be ready to jump right in and make a difference but Yeah whenever it happened is it was sad news. We are there for John. I felt I felt bad for him. 'cause I mean we were working out a lot this summer together rather I saw the work. He put in in the stuff that he was able to do. We're looking to make a big jump this year obviously With him being auto. It's been tough but we're ready to get him back Here here soon and We're going to focus on that and moving forward. Is it hard to be a really relevant player in this league. If your team's not winning at all no matter what you're doing individually. Yeah it's it's tough it's for me it's When is the only thing I care about? Numbers that as good for for looks that but for me. It's all about winning the that's all I care about coming into the business. All care about the end of the season is how much one where I've been able to leave my team and a and So far we haven't been able to to mean to grab as many wins as I've wanted as our team has wanted so It's it's all about. It's all about game better and We've had we've had a tough steph scheduled to start the season too so Not The schedule. Beer Taylor. More Home Games. I you're coming up so it'd be good for US tray. I had one of your former teammates on the podcast last week. Taurean Prince and he told. Tell me something I thought was pretty interesting. The first college game he ever saw in person he played in the first NBA game. He ever saw him person. He put a hawks. Six Jersey on your. Your childhood was just the opposite. You grew up in Norman Oklahoma City around you all the time but the NBA you. You're down the road from Oklahoma City and You and your Dad Ray would go a lot to the games there and we'll get to that because that was pretty neat what you guys are doing game night but do you have like any context when you think about trying to build with young players in Atlanta and it's hard at first and it doesn't look good it doesn't look pretty it takes here. It is really hard for young teams to win especially with the injuries. But you grew up around that thunder team. Yeah that went through that when you were a young kid you see you have that context. 'cause you grew up around a an NBA team that now. Their trajectory rectory went fast. Yeah but does that resonate with you. Yeah it does it definitely does. It's Kinda crazy. Bring that out. 'cause I mean at three play the rockets in in Houston Able to talk to Russ after a man known for for a long time and Someone of I can talk ought to and gives me a lot of really good advice. He he's talking about his his first season via and when they lost twenty seven games straight. is crazy to see. See that I remember as a kid going to their games and There's watching him play in that the whole young team and just where they were they started started to where the big three really finish Going to the finals in Anna. Obviously breaking up But just I mean the growth if they have when they were just starting together I definitely see I mean a young team like having a chance to hopefully doing that. How long did you talk with? Russ after that game with Houston. I talked to him for. I've talked for a little bit For shaves is a good dude. I mean obviously on the court. He's a dog but He's he's a he's someone who's very very genuine is a good to your rookie year. You beat them at home you you drilled them at home last year when you think of like all the moments in your rookie year to beat. Russell Westbrook beat Oklahoma City. Given you spent at your whole childhood at those games at the one that sticks out with you. Yeah it definitely is definitely up there Ricky season without the definite big moment for means I've been there. I remember going to shoot around that morning of the game and just seeing this looking back where I had my season and tickets at in the stands. This is pretty cool to to to remember those moments. So you drive from Norman to Oklahoma City for the game You would get to the arena win on a game night. Depending on who is playing most of the time. It was an hour and a half before the game whenever they opened the doors. So you'd be standing on the steps of the arena waiting for those doors to open. Yeah Yeah I would make my dad. He wouldn't want to get there that early. Make sure once I got home from school homework At the practice makes you my dad's ready to leave so we can get there for and so would you be the guy like running down the stairs like people start going to the arena. which would be running down the stairs to get down to especially the Super Young Prior like the Middle School Years I was definitely one of those guys. I was running down just trying to get close to the court so I can see those guys warm up and that was the thing right trae watching different guys warm up routines. Yeah Yeah it was. It was something that I mean I took. I love the details though things that stood out to me so just go in there and just watching the warm up and see how they prepare for a game with was I mean you need to me. What was Kevin Durant Mansa routine? His is a lot of balance stuff I mean. He vowed stuffy he still does. Today is a lot of balances him doing stuff. I mean you can't do any game because he's spending on one leg landing on two and Just a lot of balancing Some not remember his about Russ Russ he was doing a lot of mid range a lot of a lot of Just move in A lot of a lot of shooting Just used US breaking a sweat on the he was there. He was there.

service the yeah everything's going down man you don't I mean and you get all you're trying to do is come to a radio station to drive in as the hardest thing to do Hey speaking of drive in New Jersey is considering drivers licenses for illegal aliens what do you think about that her saying I mean think about it my parents came here legally from India they came here they started that they went to the paperwork and the process and they were very proud when they got their American citizenship and and I just think it's really unfair every immigrant everyone who's come here the right way to to now see individuals that have not followed the process that it up all the rules and now they're getting the same rights as American citizens and you know in New Jersey they just passed in the Senate they they passed it in the family as well to try to sneak it by if they had actually had this book before November fifth I guarantee you not only you know what we did on the rim of it does he beat them in every battle grounds rates in the state taking more than just one state Senate seat and and two assembly seats and they knew that that's why they're trying to pass it quickly and in this this lame duck period to try and minimize the damage but you know what we're not gonna let anyone forget you know going into twenty twenty the president's message was that we do not want you legal immigration we love illegal immigration but people that are coming here that are breaking the rules breaking the laws it just doesn't make any sense and you know the backbone of the Democrat wins in New Jersey state wide or otherwise have been because they convince the immigrant community they are the party for that but you know they might have been successful in the past the point Republicans they owe their races but that is completely untrue I was with a group of hotel owners last night mostly Indian American Asian American the majority of that even those that have always voted Democrat are saying
