00:01:06
I've been betting all week really? Since the pandemic started.
00:01:09
But I put a place a couple of best in the day over some NFL.
00:01:12
So hopefully I win.
00:01:13
We'll see.
00:01:14
But how are you doing, Mr Riley? How you doing today? Good area.
00:01:18
I'm doing well, man.
00:01:19
Just tryingto survive and ready for the Senate.
00:01:22
Ready for the NBA games in this NFL season to start today? Yeah.
00:01:27
I didn't think we'd get Thio Point of having football season, but because my fingers and hope it last Yeah, for sure.
00:01:34
I want to see for NFL.
00:01:36
I think they'll be okay.
00:01:38
I my biggest and sounded with college football and college basketball, but we'll see what they do.
00:01:43
Yeah.
00:01:44
No, definitely.
00:01:45
Yeah.
00:01:46
I mean, the NFL's gonna play.
00:01:47
What happened? Thank too much shot.
00:01:51
Billions left.
00:01:52
Yeah, Yeah, they're gonna push through, no matter what.
00:01:57
College is gonna be interesting.
00:01:58
Yeah, for sure.
00:01:59
I mean, with NFL, you know, I mean, especially in the south.
00:02:02
You know, we don't you know you're in New York. I'm in Houston.
00:02:05
We don't care, like you know.
00:02:06
That's just how how it is.
00:02:08
Unfortunately, we know we don't really, I care.
00:02:10
But, you know, the people with power don't really care about the coronavirus or whatever is going on.
00:02:15
They're gonna like you said they're gonna play, uh, regardless.
00:02:18
But so, you know, the NBA playoffs is going on.
00:02:21
The Lakers take on the Rockets tonight.
00:02:22
What have you been? What have you thought so far about the NBA playoffs, You know, from start to finish in this whole bubble? No, If we ask what is going on.
00:02:30
I mean, like, early on the bubble, Um, when you had those games that were, you know, 1 58 to, you know, 1 49 and almost like they were elite athletes playing in a high school gym.
00:02:44
E was like, This isn't, you know, kind of what I expected.
00:02:49
Um, is it like nobody There's nobody want to play defense? Um, is it just, you know, the no fans thing? It makes it.
00:02:57
Make sure you here.
00:02:59
Um but now it seems like everyone's kind of kind of coming back toe earth a little bit.
00:03:04
Um, was it that the who was the game the other day? That was, like, ended in, like nineties? Yeah, that Game seven and in the nineties.
00:03:14
So I mean, they seem to be coming down to Earth in terms of the unreal offensive.
00:03:20
Um, and, you know, obviously, before last night, I thought the Celtics were gonna be a lock.
00:03:27
There are the East with the box having their problems and not getting eliminated.
00:03:32
But now I guess we'll see what happens with the Game seven there.
00:03:37
Yeah.
00:03:38
So I did this thing with NBA dot com.
00:03:39
They have this, like bracket challenge.
00:03:41
They were doing so So far, I've been 100% accurate.
00:03:45
I don't know how many brackets are perfect.
00:03:47
You know, it's not like college basketball.
00:03:48
I think MBA is a little bit more predictable, but I have to heat beating the books.
00:03:52
So I had the Raptors beating the Celtics and seven games.
00:03:57
I was scared at first because, you know, they were, to be honest, they should have swept them, or they should have beat them in five realistically, But, you know, I know, but here's the crazy three.
00:04:07
They give up Game six and then either syriza's Todd.
00:04:09
Somehow, some way the game is tied.
00:04:11
Anything can happen in Game seven, so I don't know I gotta look to see how Maney brackets are accurate.
00:04:17
But realistically, I want the Celtics to win.
00:04:20
But for my own, I guess selfish selfishness.
00:04:22
Of course, I want the Raptors to win because I want to get whatever MBA dot com is going to give me.
00:04:27
So who do you have in that Siri's? Thank you.
00:04:30
I'm just gonna stick with Celtics, Okay? I think I don't think that there, you know, crazy better than the Raptors e think a have more close to the players like, I don't think Tatum and Brown or like elite players yet, but I think they're the two best players in the Siri's.
00:04:54
I agree.
00:04:55
And, you know, at the end of day, this bubble kind of as a whole college basketball field and you know, you win the answer level tournament by having you know the better players or getting extremely lucky.
00:05:09
But I'm gonna say with the Celtics there, Yeah, I mean, if I for me, I want to see the Celtics play the Heat in the Eastern Conference, and I think that will be the better matchup.
00:05:19
And like you said, I think the Celtics have the Brown Kimber then I probably Hilarion Siachen will be four or five.
00:05:34
I could make the argument.
00:05:35
Could see I could mention played that well in the playoffs so far.
00:05:38
Yeah, I mean e think, um Fred French? Yeah.
00:05:43
Fred Fred's? Yeah.
00:05:44
Fresh balling.
00:05:47
Uh, yeah.
00:05:48
I could totally see the Raptors pulling it off. It'll be interesting.
00:05:51
Um, Game Seven.
00:05:53
The home court advantage Like this game was in Toronto employing field.
00:06:04
So I'm also in the talks.
00:06:07
Yeah, I mean, so far, But it looks good, though, you know, the I mean the obviously there's no fan, but the MBA, in my opinion, they've done a good job, You know, it doesn't obviously, you know, fans out there, but it looks good, like the guys are playing hard.
00:06:20
You know, if they're playing competitive, you kind of get to hear all the arguing and bickering back and forth.
00:06:24
You know, three camera angles.
00:06:26
They're nice. The broadcast has been pretty good.
00:06:28
I think if it looks like an n b a game to me, it doesn't feel that was different to me.
00:06:32
I'm kind of used to it now.
00:06:34
Now? Yeah.
00:06:35
I mean, they've done an incredible job pulling the whole thing off.
00:06:38
I think they missed a revenue opportunity to not have, like, a pay per view version where the talk on the court has edited out because I think a lot of people would have paid you watch that.
00:06:55
But they've done a great job, especially the union.
00:06:58
And, you know, they've gone.
00:06:59
They went down there, and they haven't really had a now outbreak.
00:07:02
Um, thank you.
00:07:04
Saw baseball have where? I'm assuming, you know, something will probably happen in the NFL.
00:07:11
Um, because not being in a bubble situations just gonna lead to that happening.
00:07:16
But now they've done an incredible job.
00:07:19
Put that whole thing together, um, and just knock on whether we want to do it again next year.
00:07:24
Right? So in a transition that you're an MBA agent, you currently have two guys dare Griffin and Devin Bachmann are currently in the D League.
00:07:33
Are you? Ah, you know, really familiar with the N B.
00:07:35
A G league program.
00:07:36
Have you seen what they're doing with that? Yeah, and obviously you're Texas Tech guys.
00:07:42
That kind of stole your guys chance to the national championship not getting committed.
00:07:48
Uh, yeah, I like it.
00:07:52
Um and I do get the kind of skepticism because they're not playing, you know, an actual dealing schedule.
00:07:59
We're gonna play some games teams.
00:08:01
Most of it's gonna be scrimmages and stuff, eh? So I get the skepticism of that, Um I think it's a good alternative because, you know, some kids just aren't built to go to school, right? You know, like whether it's academically, whether it's, you know, personality wise, where it's like, what is Jonathan could make? I have to prove your average, like, not even a year.
00:08:26
He'll be there with six months, maybe.
00:08:28
Yeah, from, you know, watching him.
00:08:30
And you know, all the stuff like That's a kid who kids get college.
00:08:35
Yeah, all right.
00:08:37
So I think he's a good alternative until they get rid of the one and done rule how good it works.
00:08:44
Who knows? Um, yeah, I think it's an easier situation for kids than pulling a little mellow ball on going overseas because, you know, 17 18 year old kid going to another country, notably difficulty.
00:08:58
It's not easy thing to dio, All right, so it's definitely, um, it's definitely gonna be interesting.
00:09:07
I think it will work out.
00:09:10
We'll see.
00:09:11
But I'm fine with so far.
00:09:15
I mean, I like the idea.
00:09:16
I think that it's it's new.
00:09:18
You know what? You *** like the new Shiny told the blocking.
00:09:20
Everyone wants to go see what it is and see what it does.
00:09:23
I mean, I have some questions about I actually wrote the story, um, about it.
00:09:27
You know, my biggest thing is, you know, the kids, like you said not everyone's academically inclined or, you know, this doesn't fit their personality.
00:09:33
My biggest concern was I just wanna make sure the kids air fully aware of what they're getting themselves into, you know, just for example.
00:09:41
You know Isaiah, Todd.
00:09:42
He goes over there.
00:09:43
Let's say he doesn't play well.
00:09:46
Well, how does that one affect his draft stock to, Especially next year? Next, you're gonna be a very, very deep draft.
00:09:52
So you know, you're gonna see some guys, you know, if they don't play well in college or, God forbid, they don't play well in the D League pro program, that might be, You know, he might be going back to the G league again, or he could be potentially playing overseas.
00:10:05
There's nothing wrong with that.
00:10:06
It's just a financial you know, you're looking at, you know, in college if you play bad, you can come back.
00:10:11
You play bad again, you could continue to come back.
00:10:13
And some kids, you know, they're betting on themselves, and I'm all for that.
00:10:16
But it's my concern is just you go over there, you don't play bad, then was next that type of then Then I'm also looking at, like, you know, injuries.
00:10:25
What happens if you get hurt? You know that money if you get hurt or if you play, But is that money pro rated? How does that affect your financial stability? Long term? Yeah.
00:10:36
I mean, I'm pretty sure the money and stuff is all guaranteed, but, like, bring up a good point that, like, also as anti he goes to college, you know, whether was skin wherever he would have ended up, you probably dominates, um, states of Trump pick.
00:10:50
Now you're saying you know, some games against guys who are trying to fight against the MBA, Um, like, yeah, he's probably gonna look, you know, not as good as he would have looked playing in the Big 10.
00:11:02
All right, So definitely is a risk to his draft stock.
00:11:07
But I think you have toe kind of almost bank on the fact that, um, you know, an MBA team he's gonna is taking him off his potential.
00:11:15
Like it's probably not gonna matter much how you perform here because you're going into a situation where you know you're getting MBA level training.
00:11:24
Um, it's not like I think what's going to matter more for a kid like him is, you know, the practices, how he looks in practice, how he, you know, accepts his coaching and you know what they want to change on them more so than, like, the actual games he plays in because I think as it to be executive like you have toe kind of resign yourself to the fact that some of these games is gonna be going up against 27 28 year old guys.
00:11:49
Who your true in the MBA already? Um, so I I don't think the games will hurt his draft.
00:11:55
Like, I think what could potentially hurting kids draft truck is you know, if they don't, you know, take the coaching Well, if you buy into the whole system.
00:12:05
Um, I think that will probably hurt these guys.
00:12:08
Stopped more than you know how they actually play the game.
00:12:11
Yeah.
00:12:12
I mean, nothing is too, you know, like you said, they're playing against grown men.
00:12:15
You know, if I'm a Geely guy, you know, I've been to Geely 3456 years, And I'm playing against Jalen Greene.
00:12:21
He are, you know, arguably probably number one.
00:12:23
Well, it could be the number one overall pick or Jonathan commingle, whoever I'm gonna try to boss up.
00:12:28
You know, this is this is film I could use to get signed for for, you know, MBA roster.
00:12:32
So, you know, I gotta, you know, bully him a little bit, you know, kind of putting, you know, show him who big bro is, per se.
00:12:39
I'm gonna try and do that because, you know, I didn't want to feed my family too, but no, you know, these kids definitely have targets on their back.
00:12:46
There's no doubt about that.
00:12:48
Um, like, I haven't really seen you know Todd Greene too much in person.
00:12:53
Um, but I've seen come into play a lot in person.
00:12:56
Uh, and I think he'll handle that final.
00:12:58
They can almost relish that on, you know, accept that challenge.
00:13:04
But now, yeah, I mean, they're gonna have targets on their back.
00:13:07
Um, and yeah, it's gonna be a good learning experience, huh? But I think definitely green coming to Todd.
00:13:15
Like they'll still probably say, first round draft picks, the other kids Knicks and Soto and sing.
00:13:27
I don't know if they were first round picks going into this, all right? Like, I guess you them totally being guys who were, you know, two years in the select program, or even slight program.
00:13:39
And, you know, there are year in the D League and then enter the draft.
00:13:43
Um, those guys are gonna be a little more if he, um I could almost probably guarantee you that coming Go green entitled.
00:13:52
You drank that morning 2021.
00:13:54
And I agree, obviously, in college basketball, you can't play players, unfortunately, but you can't pay them legally, but yeah, my point is just that, For example, look at u c l.
00:14:11
A Knicks.
00:14:12
He commits there, but then all of a sudden, he changed his mind.
00:14:16
He goes to the league one.
00:14:17
That team is now screwed because you know, their five star point guard isn't coming anymore.
00:14:22
You know, he you know that they've been recruiting this guy all year, really years now, and he commits that.
00:14:27
He changed his mind. Fine.
00:14:29
Well, Yvonne, you know, build stuff at Kansas or Kruger at Oklahoma.
00:14:35
It's already hard enough for me to compete with Kansas, Kentucky, Duke.
00:14:39
You know, all these big programs, But now I'm competing against, you know, other premier school.
00:14:44
But I'm also completely, completely gets a pro program or they're paying these kids, you know, $1,250,000 for me.
00:14:53
I mean, I know they've been cheating before, but now I almost feel like it's worth it, because what what? What can I You know, What can I do to get this kid to come down with me? And I'm already Kansas already, you know, telling him X, Y and Z and doing God knows what underneath the table.
00:15:08
So what can I do as Oklahoma, you know? Ah, you t whatever school, Can I get this kid to come to my pro because I'm coming? I was even harder for kids to recruit him right now.
00:15:17
Yeah, I mean, obviously, like it's already worth it to do.
00:15:21
It s it really gets caught, even like, and it's like they got caught in, like, what happened, like s.
00:15:28
Oh, yeah.
00:15:29
I mean, I think it definitely it kind of makes it tougher for those schools that are not, you know, not contenders, but those ones that are kind of in the middle.
00:15:37
Like the u C L.
00:15:38
A s the, um, Oklahoma's theme the, you know, Virginia texts that are, you know, in the tournament they were really compete.
00:15:47
But right now, maybe I could go all out, you know, drama, couple bags.
00:15:51
And yes, Claire, just because what the hell like? Yeah, like, I could definitely see that.
00:16:02
But you're also seeing more international teams getting the Knicks.
00:16:05
Like Mike Foster has got three international country as options, um, the the league.
00:16:12
And then for, um, you know, college teams.
00:16:16
So instead, the landscapes definitely changing.
00:16:19
Um, but yeah.
00:16:22
I mean, the cheating is still gonna be there.
00:16:24
Uh, been there? Yeah.
00:16:28
Yeah.
00:16:30
So yeah, I think the only thing is going to stop that is, you know, kids being able to get paid, So I agree.
00:16:39
So What do you think about, You know, like so Lemelle Abadie this year, Um, RJ Hampton did as well.
00:16:45
You know, you have these high school kids or hard recruits.
00:16:47
They go overseas for a year, you know, you know, go.
00:16:49
You know, like you said colleges and for everybody, you know, I'm I'm forward.
00:16:52
But my only concern is ah, lot of those kids.
00:16:55
They go over the overseas for you and they and they it's hard over there.
00:16:59
You know, those players are very because also grown in.
00:17:02
You know, sometimes I would say a lot of the time they go overseas, they don't play well.
00:17:08
They come to the MBA that usually lottery picks high first round picks and they continue to struggle.
00:17:13
And my and I'm missing anybody other than I think Brandon Jennings and he, you know, he's even played eight years in the NBA.
00:17:20
They go over the overseas, they come to the n b A.
00:17:22
And it's just good luck.
00:17:23
You know, they're not having the successful careers as we expect.
00:17:27
Manual Moody is an example.
00:17:28
You know, you're having some of these guys.
00:17:29
Josh Shelby.
00:17:31
They go over there for a year they come back, They're just not as good.
00:17:34
Yeah. I mean, I'm not really sure.
00:17:36
You what causes that? Because, like, maybe they were just overhyped to begin with, Uh, but also, like, it is a different game over there, right? So, like, are you really getting an MBA type of, you know, educational.
00:17:51
They're like, Yeah, like the college game is different than the MBA, but like, it's still like American style basketball.
00:17:57
Like, obviously, unless you're playing, you know, for Virginia, where they have their, you know, 40 point game offense that just kills time off the clock and miserable watching television.
00:18:07
Like, you know, you're still playing American style basketball.
00:18:12
Eso like I mean, maybe that's it.
00:18:15
Um, maybe these guys just want as good as like, we all thought they were, um e I think Lemelle is gonna be probably It's a litmus test for God overseas.
00:18:27
Like, I think he's gonna be a stud.
00:18:29
Um, uh, he's just started.
00:18:32
Like I think you might Seymour guys try to go that route, all right? No.
00:18:38
Yeah.
00:18:39
It's definitely like transitioning as a 17 year old going overseas from another country playing a different style of basketball sometimes in a situation where, like, you're not gonna get minutes right away.
00:18:50
Like what? I think what's different with Melo is like Australia specifically, Um, I've spoken to the commissioner there.
00:18:57
Ah, bunch.
00:18:58
Like they specifically want to bring in thes lottery pick type players type.
00:19:04
They're gonna play them, and they're marking them, as you know, big part of their league.
00:19:09
Whereas when Jennings and Moody's went overseas like they weren't, you know, I don't want to like a marketing toy, but, like, they, they're just pieces out of it.
00:19:22
You'd like.
00:19:23
I'll show you, you know, is using these guys to build their leader e there, You know, 30 35 minutes scheme.
00:19:31
E think it's kind of a little girl situation.
00:19:33
And when some of those guys we're going overseas a few years ago.
00:19:37
Um, but yeah.
00:19:38
I mean, like, if melo melo somehow busted Theune, I think that gives the Djelic select kind of a advantage to program.
00:19:49
Um, because right now it's just the one Julie team and can say, Hey, I wanna go play in the league like you can say, I wanna go overseas like the jelly has come to you.
00:20:00
E Todd and say, Hey, we want use will pay you.
00:20:06
Whereas, you know, kid ranked 120th in the country, can you say All right, I'm going to skip college.
00:20:12
We go overseas, you know, Germany for a year.
00:20:16
Um so, like the flow Melo bus That kind of gives the G league the leverage where All right, maybe we can create, you know, 16 division of these college kids, you know, they play each other and they play, you know, 10 games and actual village team eso It doesn't be interested, but, I mean, I think low Mello's going to start, Uh, my next e.
00:20:42
Obviously, that's probably gonna happen anymore, because we can win a lottery to save our lives.
00:20:47
But, you know, I think he's gonna be stuck wherever he ends up.
00:20:51
I think he's just got that personality.
00:20:53
I think his game is more complete in Alonso's.
00:20:57
Yeah, um, and you can learn from him.
00:21:00
He can learn from his mistakes or the route that he took.
00:21:02
He can learn, which I think is kind of already done.
00:21:05
Yeah, like from everything I've heard.
00:21:07
Like, he's like, levar doesn't have the controlling like the Yeah, that whole sideshow stuff like doesn't faze lo Melo lines.
00:21:19
Was the first one that had deal with that? Um, definitely.
00:21:22
Probably wasn't, you know, ready for what was coming.
00:21:26
All right, well, I saw that he was, like, all right, Like, I'm not going down that path.
00:21:31
So now I think some will be fine.
00:21:34
Um, but now, you know, obviously the whole coronavirus changes might change guys going overseas in general because it's completely screwed up the overseas market and stuff.
00:21:48
Do you think that it was fair that the Geely they kind of undermine college programs? I was kind of getting the comparison like you're married.
00:21:55
You're on the altar with your beautiful while.
00:21:57
She's, you know, she's looking as good as she wanna look.
00:21:59
And then this random No, Dude comes down the aisle.
00:22:04
Uh, Lisa, I wanna marry you.
00:22:06
Now to here's here's this car right here.
00:22:10
Come on, babe.
00:22:11
Let's go.
00:22:12
And she leaves, You know, like bam.
00:22:14
Like I would be I would be really, really ****ed if I was you stealing because I heard Coach was mad.
00:22:19
I heard he was He didn't address it publicly.
00:22:22
But do you think that's fair? for them The once the kid has already signed.
00:22:26
Should they be able to do that? I mean, nothing's fair business.
00:22:29
Um, yeah, that's true.
00:22:31
And you? I think that there's otherwise have their chance toe make it.
00:22:38
So this kind of thing wouldn't happen, right? Like, yeah, kids for decades.
00:22:45
So, like they had their chance.
00:22:46
They've refused to do that.
00:22:49
Now the NBA's gonna say, Hey, all right.
00:22:50
You don't wanna pay them.
00:22:53
We'll pay them, and right, we create our own minor league system here.
00:22:58
Um, yeah.
00:23:01
You know, the day NC double A, I could say something's non PG about the Yeah, uh, especially how they started the whole certification program, which Yeah, complete joke, but, um, yeah, I mean, they had their chance.
00:23:18
They wanna protect, you know, their sanctity of amateurism, which now we're seeing with college football is China doesn't exist.
00:23:27
If you know, all these kids are going to stay on campus and you might send your regular students home.
00:23:34
Like now these kids aren't bathroom anymore.
00:23:36
So, like, yeah, they had their chance to prevent the J League program from taking off again.
00:23:41
E don't wanna take is they fight even on small marketing stuff.
00:23:44
So I mean, like, yeah, I mean I mean, they kind of the n c a.
00:23:51
They kind of I mean, it's just 2020 you know, kids now, And they were smarter than we've ever been with more creative than we've ever been.
00:23:58
We're just aware, too, so much, so many things, you know, technology, social media.
00:24:01
They're trying to run it like this is like the seventies and eighties.
00:24:04
You know, kids are a lot smarter than they were, you know, 40 years ago.
00:24:07
Those guys who played years ago Yeah, yeah, it's good.
00:24:11
Kids now are waking up like, Hey, it doesn't make sense that I can't sign my jersey and sell it for 100 bucks like that.
00:24:17
I can't do a commercial for someone.
00:24:21
E mean, look at ****** Williams.
00:24:23
He's what, 16 He has what, two million followers on Instagram like he's already a brand.
00:24:29
He's already a brand at at 16 which is, you know, crazy.
00:24:32
But, you know, he realized I'm you know, No, just self know your worth.
00:24:37
You know, I'm seeing with X amount of followers.
00:24:40
I want a piece of the pot too, right and, like, obviously way too soon to see to say that you know, Michael Jordan is gonna be some MBA Mark.
00:24:49
But that said, he continues to be this good and he's 17 years old, like Okay, so what does the c w give Mia's Mikey Williams to benefit from? Like, I could go play for you for free, not make any money? Technically, um, play for a year, possibly get hurt? Yeah, possibly hurt my draft stock.
00:25:11
Or I could go to the D League.
00:25:12
I could get paid 500 grand.
00:25:15
A million dollars once endor*****t stuff are, I am.
00:25:20
I don't have to worry about going to class like So you want kids like, not go Julie, grab or not go overseas or when they're one and done rule that you don't want to go straight to the NBA like All right, what's your value? E college.
00:25:37
Anytime.
00:25:38
Go get an education like I could play five years in the n B.
00:25:41
A.
00:25:42
I mean, go to college for you, like you could do that at any point.
00:25:47
So what's my benefit to go in to play college basketball when all these NBA teams already know who I am When I'm 15 years old.
00:25:56
Like everyone knew in the NBA.
00:25:58
Knew they were all right.
00:25:59
The issue.
00:26:00
But we probably should have to try to get this kid John Dominga 2021 like they do that a couple years ago.
00:26:06
You know, what's the benefit to Jonathan? Continue to going things that really like.
00:26:11
There is not I'm not making any money from it.
00:26:13
Why? Um you know why.
00:26:16
Take that chance.
00:26:17
Yeah.
00:26:18
E also, you know, like a head coach.
00:26:20
E mean tech coach.
00:26:21
Beer did it.
00:26:22
He was at UNLV for, like a now, er that he changed his mind and want to take.
00:26:27
You know, all those kids are probably, you know, we get a new head coach, whatever, whatever, whether he leaves.
00:26:31
So, you know, I guess I mean, in that same token enough, Or if a kid wants to, you know, change his life, financial, make a different decision, You know, he should have that right.
00:26:39
The coach could do it.
00:26:40
The players should do the same thing. Yeah.
00:26:42
I mean, you know, U c l a coach.
00:26:44
Whoever coaches like a new job overcomes up there under contract.
00:26:48
They believe what any kid leave his commitment to go like.
00:26:53
You should have done a better job committing into the right about now. That's fair.
00:26:59
So, you know, chronic from 17.
00:27:08
Especially guys going over.
00:27:09
See? How are you? What are you telling your guys? You know, prepare them for the upcoming season.
00:27:14
You also have a rookie that you have.
00:27:16
Ah, Jalen Cooper.
00:27:17
You know, how are you? Because it's uncertain some people might not be going overseas at all.
00:27:21
You know, health risk, You know, team on my little brother.
00:27:24
I was just talking him last night.
00:27:25
He had a potential offer to oversee the team.
00:27:27
They ended up choosing, um, veteran guys that have played overseas before.
00:27:31
They didn't want the young guys.
00:27:32
So he's still waiting.
00:27:34
So what are you telling your guys to help prepare them? You know that next step in the basketball court? Yeah.
00:27:39
I mean, um, Likas much they can like, there's just no certainly out there.
00:27:45
Especially now.
00:27:47
You know, it came out today that the NBA season is probably not going to start until Christmas or later.
00:27:52
Um, that means like the G league season.
00:27:55
Probably not start until January to double dip go overseas by the time that, like doing season, starting to come back and play in the league.
00:28:08
Um, like the problem is a lot of countries cut down on, you know, the numbers imports to bring in last summer's overseas market Was that in terms of, you know, salary and stuff? I tried to get a, um, deal overseas for a guy who played three or four years in the NBA.
00:28:28
Um, who's making he made.
00:28:32
I'm like, 100 115 k in China Ondas team.
00:28:37
And I forgot the country wanted them.
00:28:39
Um and they were like, How much? How much do you want? So you need to, like, at least 100.
00:28:45
Come on.
00:28:46
And they're like, Well, we could do 35.
00:28:48
Like So, Like, the market was bad.
00:28:52
Salary wise already last year.
00:28:54
This'll is making it a lot worse.
00:28:56
Um, yeah.
00:28:57
A lot of countries still don't know.
00:28:59
You know, when they're seasons, they're going to start.
00:29:01
Um, yeah, technically, like us citizens still under allowed and most of yeah, yeah, it's a mess.
00:29:12
Eso trying to see, like, what's out there for some of these guys? Just tell them to make sure they stay in shape.
00:29:19
Um, if we can double dip will try.
00:29:21
Um, it's not, you know, just get ready for a e.
00:29:32
Don't get that sense just because they put all this.
00:29:36
Oh, you know, the plan e a plan? How many games? And when it starts, who knows? But else happened, but yeah, it's just tough and things they don't have any Like rookies coming into this draft.
00:29:54
Not really, thankfully, like, rather have them.
00:29:57
Yeah, a couple of kids I was recruiting went back to school.
00:30:02
Um, instead of entering the draft.
00:30:04
So, like, because this is, you know, these guys are not gonna be sitting around until November until the draft.
00:30:10
Like, it's it's a tough spot for everybody.
00:30:13
Yeah, yeah.
00:30:15
I mean, because I know there was a key.
00:30:17
I think it was a big 12 or a Big 10 school.
00:30:19
I remember it was it was a big 12 school.
00:30:22
His guy, he was from overseas, and, you know, he was waiting to come to the States for months, like 23 months, and they would not let him come over here.
00:30:30
So he has just been like going back and forth to the airport.
00:30:32
Sometimes he would be in the airport, like weeks.
00:30:34
Just, you know, just sitting there waiting.
00:30:36
And I think they finally let him into America, I believe, two weeks ago.
00:30:40
So he finally got to be with this team and get on camp.
00:30:42
You know, he's already, you know, behind because he just hasn't been here.
00:30:45
So I kind of felt, you know, bad for the kid, because, you know, that's not his own father for dealing with a crazy time right now.
00:30:51
And he has no control over that, right? Yeah.
00:30:53
I mean, that's the thing.
00:30:54
Like, nobody can really control any of this.
00:30:57
Um, and it's been and interesting, really.
00:31:02
I mean, right before everything shut down.
00:31:04
I was at, you know, the A 10 tournament.
00:31:06
Yeah, got home from that and then within a couple hours to go, there was positive.
00:31:17
Five months, So, yeah, it's been crazy.
00:31:21
Have have your guys, but I'm I'm Well, I don't know them personally, but I'm very for me.
00:31:26
But David Griffin, I played against him in high school.
00:31:28
But how? Your guy, you know, health, while you know, they being smart, you know? Just you know just basic possibly know where mass, You know? Just be smart.
00:31:36
Do you have any, like, however they, you know, just being with this whole problem? No, it's hard for them because they want to do certain things, but they just can't.
00:31:43
Yeah, yeah.
00:31:44
I mean, they've been good through the whole process.
00:31:45
Um, do what they gotta do. Wearing mass.
00:31:48
Um, you know, not being stupid and going, uh, crowded parties and stuff.
00:31:54
Yeah.
00:31:55
Now they've been good to this whole thing.
00:31:57
So we talked about this off their, um, you know, with the Daniel housing, there's there's a lot of, you know, random.
00:32:03
I don't even know what to believe at this point.
00:32:05
There's been so many stories.
00:32:07
Even we were on the podcast.
00:32:08
32 minutes.
00:32:09
I'm getting just alerts on my phone every two minutes about what's going.
00:32:13
I don't even want to read it anymore.
00:32:14
But, you know, with you know, you're dealing with young male athletes.
00:32:20
They have a lot of testosterone, and, you know, stuff happens.
00:32:25
How do you You know, you know, the guys that we wanna do stuff, you know, women, beautiful women everywhere.
00:32:31
How do you deal with you know, keeping those guys, you know, like man. Come on, you.
00:32:34
I get it.
00:32:35
But you got to realize, how do you deal with? Maybe your guys don't like that, but I know you know, other agents.
00:32:39
How do you or do you know other guys that deal with, like, knuckleheads per se? Um, yeah.
00:32:43
I mean, obviously there's, you know, some technicalities.
00:32:46
Yeah, technically, she was in the bubble, right? He's not trying to find a loophole that didn't work.
00:32:51
He tried to.
00:32:53
So, I mean, my memory comes some slack there.
00:32:57
Uh, but yeah.
00:32:59
I mean, honestly, like you kind of just gotta put yourself just, you know, if I was 23 years old again, like in that situation, like Alright, yeah, I'd probably do what they were trying to dio.
00:33:10
What kind of just be that a dolphin like? Hey, like, you know, it's not like you be smart.
00:33:19
Thank you.
00:33:20
Like I've never had any guy who's gotten into Yeah, trouble.
00:33:24
Uh, it's stupid trouble like that or, like, you know, legal trouble or anything.
00:33:29
So, um yeah, definitely.
00:33:32
Just obviously.
00:33:34
You know, when I was 23 stupid stuff to, you know, just kind of understanding that they all you know, they're going to do stupid stuff.
00:33:43
Yeah, because you're young and having money.
00:33:45
All right? So just making sure they don't do anything to super.
00:33:49
Yeah, I mean, no, I completely I mean, I don't I see what he tried to do.
00:33:53
And he's also from my hometown.
00:33:56
So I've been around him a few times.
00:33:57
I know his trainer, but I get it like I silly tried through it, just like Come on, man.
00:34:03
Like, because Because the issue with him is I don't think you know God for I don't want this to happen to him.
00:34:08
But he's good enough in the big enough piece on the Rockets, so I don't think it will affect him that much.
00:34:14
But, you know, let's say it's the guy That's the 11 12 men on the bench.
00:34:18
You know, he hasn't played all bubble.
00:34:20
He that guy could be in a situation where you know, they cut him because, you know, because because it's like it just it's not worth it, you know? Now you gotta be smart trying to sneak the girl into the hotel room and he was a friend.
00:34:34
Cut like your career might be over now.
00:34:37
Yeah, like Russell Westbrook trying to pull something like that like Russell Westbrook's not get cut like you're the you know, 13th, 14th guy who's, ah, borderline NBA player.
00:34:48
Probably your player like your cut.
00:34:50
You're probably get another job.
00:34:52
Yeah, like a happening right Then it's just then it's like, you don't wanna be that guy that ruins it for everybody, like, you know, God forbid.
00:35:02
But let's just, you know, let's say someone does try to do that.
00:35:05
And God forbid he he or she has co vid.
00:35:09
That whole thing is just done like, yeah, like you don't want you together ruins debate.
00:35:15
But, uh, that will follow you around the rest of career.
00:35:19
Uh, I mean, yeah, yeah.
00:35:22
I mean, look at look at the kicker, The kicker that I think he played for the Cowboys of the Redskins.
00:35:26
This when Jerry's well just got built.
00:35:28
He punted a ball and it got stuck at the top of the rafters.
00:35:32
He never they cut him.
00:35:33
He never got a doppelganger.
00:35:35
Well, he never he never played again.
00:35:37
That's a day and like, it kind of goes along with, you know, one of the guys that I know, um does a lot of recruiting on stuff you like, Obviously great players gonna make the MBA.
00:35:50
You could be a great player at the MBA, but you gotta be.
00:35:54
Your time has to be perfect.
00:35:55
Everything has to fall into place.
00:35:57
Whether it's, you know, someone getting hurt, um or, you know, you end up like Alonso tree like you're on a 10 day, you have to play.
00:36:04
Really Well, now you get a contract.
00:36:07
So, like part of being a good player and trying to last name bays not doing stupid, you cut your a lottery pick.
00:36:16
You do something stupid, like so let it fly like you're too talented for Yeah, Andre Baker and the Giants like Rob.
00:36:26
People know that's not like so if you're not an elite player and you wanna have, you know, a long enough n b a career to get a pension and stuff like you can't do, you can't do that.
00:36:38
You can't do that stuff and you think with yeah thing with me is just like I was talking to my buddies.
00:36:44
But I said You don't see any Lakers player doing because LeBron Alex Caruso.
00:36:48
He wanted to go to his own sister's wedding, and LeBron was like, Yeah, we're not what? We're not doing that type.
00:36:54
That's his sister's wedding.
00:36:55
You know what I mean? It's just like and I'm not telling, you know, bang on James Harden a bang on what's really just like you don't see other players doing that like that.
00:37:03
They're not doing that right.
00:37:05
And then also, you gotta kind of think about your team, Like doing like, Oh, yeah.
00:37:11
Like what if you got it and you got Yeah, right.
00:37:14
You only got one other person on the team infected.
00:37:16
But what is that? One of the persons James Harden.
00:37:18
Yeah.
00:37:19
Now you're now one of your Siri's.
00:37:22
Yeah, And they need house, right? Yeah, like he's a key player.
00:37:26
Like he expected there.
00:37:28
And now they're in trouble.
00:37:29
That Siri's now, so, yeah.
00:37:31
I mean, like, you just get me smarter.
00:37:34
Obviously thought he had a good loophole, which, because he was available, you know, I see where he's coming from, but yeah, I mean, you just gotta be smarter than that.
00:37:47
And and poor girl four girl, because I just I mean, I just like because she's going to get, like, a lot of that, like the back, and I don't know who she is.
00:37:56
I hope we don't even find out just for her own, you know? Well being.
00:37:59
But like, was it worth like now, looking at this now, maybe she thought it was I mean now, is it really worth it now? Because it's like, now, I don't know what's gonna happen to it.
00:38:10
But you were knocking kind of assume, like, because that is just bad for Disney.
00:38:15
Like that doesn't look good.
00:38:16
And it's just, you know, they did all this to get them in here safely.
00:38:20
Then you do that.
00:38:21
I know. They tell them this everyday. Don't do that.
00:38:23
Like you can't do that, right? Yeah.
00:38:26
Yeah.
00:38:27
Well, hopefully her name never comes out, but yeah, I mean, both, especially She was.
00:38:36
Would you like a nurse or just like the testing? Yeah, she was Ah, Tester.
00:38:41
Yeah, So I mean, maybe he wanted to get tested late night. Maybe he was confident.
00:38:46
Who knows who knows what.
00:38:47
He was wrong with him.
00:38:48
Who knows? Yeah.
00:38:51
So, um, moving on to more, I guess.
00:38:55
Important topic How do you like you? Look at a narrow.
00:39:07
He played very well this year about the Rosen guys like that.
00:39:10
How do you think this? Um, well, the big players contractors, You know, I expect the salary cap to take a dip.
00:39:15
And, you know, our teams even.
00:39:16
You know, Anthony Davis afraid of summer.
00:39:18
You know, he's I'm gonna wanna know a truckload of cash.
00:39:21
How do you think that affect their contracts? Yeah, I mean, we'll have to see what happens.
00:39:26
Um, when they do, you know, negotiate this stuff out of the C B A, um, How you know this salary, cap it.
00:39:35
What will happen? Like I don't I would doubt, you know, it's one giant one year drop, but, you know, you'll probably see a drop that spread out over the next 4 to 5 years.
00:39:47
Um, like guys like Anthony Davis like it.
00:39:50
Anthony Davis wanted opt out and get a contract somewhere.
00:39:54
Um, he'll probably get what he was supposed to get.
00:39:56
Um, but you know, those lower level free agents you know, those fringe roster guys or even your calories, or like, a little bit older? Um, you might have to feel like a lot of them settle for vet minimums or something a little higher than that on one year deals, you'll see.
00:40:14
Like the whatever you know, top end players come into this free agency.
00:40:18
If any end up doing, um, you know, they'll get their long term deals.
00:40:23
Uh, those mid fringe guys middle of Roger guys, I don't see teams really thrown out cash.
00:40:34
Uh, you know, they could redo the C b A.
00:40:39
And you realize that.
00:40:41
Hey, you know, it's not gonna be that big of a drop.
00:40:44
Um or, you know, still gonna be projected to go up in the coming years.
00:40:50
Um, and you could see some more money thrown around, but you're not gonna see, like, a 2016 scenario this year.
00:40:57
Um, especially because next year's class is gonna be a lot better.
00:41:03
I feel bad for guys like Jason Tatum, cause I know before when the bubble will I want to do it early because, you know, most young player, he's gonna be a silk for a long time.
00:41:14
But guys, um and you know, well, yeah, it's definitely could for the player on there and like, there was no shot of that ever happening.
00:41:35
Gotta get their extensions early.
00:41:37
Obviously, it's extenuating cir***stances.
00:41:39
But then, like you opened up the Pandora's box of you know, guys, next year who? One extensions.
00:41:46
Alright, I'm doing for my extension.
00:41:48
I want to get it early before I play this season.
00:41:50
Yeah, for Jayson Tatum last year, like, now, let me get it this year.
00:41:54
So there's 0% chance like that was gonna happen.
00:41:57
Um, but yeah, I mean, it's risky.
00:42:00
Thankfully, so far, none of those extent you guys have gotten hurt.
00:42:04
All right, but yeah.
00:42:07
I mean, I do feel bad for the stuff.
00:42:08
You guys.
00:42:09
Hey, I have to say I took three months off playing basketball.
00:42:13
I have to go pretty much turn trying to make a playoff push here.
00:42:18
Like so you really like your theory on Fox in the King's? Like they show up there, right? We have to push to make the playoffs.
00:42:25
I'm doing for upset and put basketball in four months, right? You know, the odds are someone's gonna get hurt.
00:42:33
And he was playing her to hear her ankle injury or something like that. Yeah.
00:42:37
Yeah.
00:42:38
I do feel bad for those guys, thankfully, all in May so far, made out healthy.
00:42:43
Hopefully, Tatum makes that healthy.
00:42:46
They can get their extensions next year and, you know, get everything they were.
00:42:51
Let's get because also, I feel bad for guys like bam out of by You know, this was his breakout season.
00:42:56
He really took a gigantic leap forward.
00:42:59
You know, if I'm him, I want to get that money now because he's also eligible next summer as well.
00:43:04
So I mean, we'll see.
00:43:05
I mean, I think all those guys will get their money.
00:43:07
I just want to see, you know what is that? What does that look like? What is that number? Look like? It will be the same when they get a little less.
00:43:13
You know who knows? E think it'll be close? Um, it's gonna say like that's gonna affect the friend.
00:43:19
You guys in the middle of roster guys more than anything, the stars, they're still gonna get their money, right? That'll never change.
00:43:27
So you're a big boyfriend, people, your instagram, your your everywhere.
00:43:30
You're at lbl stuff.
00:43:32
You're at Yankees games, Knicks game.
00:43:36
You're you're just all over the place.
00:43:37
And you like you said earlier.
00:43:38
You alright? Next fan.
00:43:40
I'm big on conspiracy theories.
00:43:42
I personally think that the n b A lottery is Rick is rigged.
00:43:45
You don't have to answer that if you don't want to.
00:43:46
But I think I think it's rigged.
00:43:48
It has to be rigged.
00:43:50
Like it just it just has to be written in the Knicks.
00:43:53
You know, you all have been moved up in the lottery since y'all drafted Patrick Ewing.
00:43:58
You know, even those first round picks they traded, they won the lottery, didn't move up.
00:44:02
Uh, I don't know if it's fixed.
00:44:05
We're cursed.
00:44:06
Like whatever it may be, Um, it just hasn't worked out in the next favor.
00:44:11
Yeah.
00:44:13
I mean, what I think is hopefully this has happened.
00:44:16
So I think that I think that the, you know, the wars they had the number two overall pick.
00:44:21
I think that the war is gonna try to use that picks to get a player.
00:44:24
Maybe your work, hopefully enough.
00:44:26
They have a They're They're weird over there.
00:44:28
They have a bunch of loopholes.
00:44:29
They figured out to get a bunch of cash.
00:44:31
But maybe, you know, you could swap picks. Maybe.
00:44:35
I think that the the Warriors might try to draft any of Egypt from Israel.
00:44:39
Maybe you could move about to get lit.
00:44:41
Mellow? Yeah.
00:44:42
I mean, I think the war is probably try to use that the trade for a player like because, you know, what is a James Wiseman like really do for warriors next year? Like trying to win a championship? I'm not gonna Him, but like rookies, Not what they need.
00:44:58
Yeah, Yeah, I think it's almost probably guarantee they trade that big.
00:45:03
What do they get for it? Who knows? Like like what? Could who's even on the market? Like for a trade like and B you could be.
00:45:15
And him and him and Andrew him, Andrew Wiggins make exactly the same Monday dollar for dollar because you give Wiggins a pit Wiggins the pick and I don't know something and be, You know, he's a top 10 player in the NBA.
00:45:26
So you're giving up a lot to get him, But he would be an option.
00:45:29
You have to do something.
00:45:31
Uh, no offense Any of those guys there? They just They just don't said Yeah.
00:45:37
Yeah, I guess I could see that.
00:45:38
Maybe they try to go make a move for John.
00:45:40
It's you know that.
00:45:42
See, that's what I want to happen.
00:45:44
I want that to happen so bad.
00:45:46
But I've been I've been talking about this for over a year now, so I think that Young could he could be a warrior.
00:45:51
Have you Have you seen that $250 million credit line that the Warriors opened up? Have you heard about that? So, you know Joe Lakers? He's one of the best, you know, financially responsible GM, you know, in the in the NBA.
00:46:05
So you know the warriors, they don't have a local TV deal.
00:46:08
They're one the few MBA teams that don't have one.
00:46:11
So and there's so much, you know, faith that the war is going to be good again.
00:46:16
He opened up a $250 million credit line, Thio that goes with their camp basically.
00:46:22
So if they ever got into a situation, we need money right now.
00:46:25
Right now, they can use, um, that money.
00:46:30
You know, they're the only team.
00:46:31
I think so far we're all in any the only playoff team for sure.
00:46:35
That can do like the rockets can't do it that he can't do that.
00:46:38
Nuggets Jazz, etcetera.
00:46:39
So he found a way thio tap into, you know, 250 million more dollars.
00:46:45
So, essentially, if they need some cash and they also have a $17.
00:46:48
8 million trade exception do the e g, they can sign another free agent.
00:46:56
Yeah.
00:46:57
I mean, like, I don't buy.
00:46:58
John is going anywhere until I actually see it, but yeah, I mean, that could be built.
00:47:03
The MPs in view, fits for what they dio.
00:47:09
Kids grow up, though.
00:47:10
The same time.
00:47:12
Hey, has to be an adult, though.
00:47:13
He has to grow up because they are a championship, because he has to grow up.
00:47:18
I mean, that cultural probably do that. Yeah.
00:47:22
Um, yeah.
00:47:23
The sixties air in a weird spot right now.
00:47:26
Um, like, do you blow it up to you higher, coach? Try to figure out Wow.
00:47:32
Like I think those guys, they're all good players, I think by a player.
00:47:36
I think someone is a good player.
00:47:37
I think he's a good player, but they never your assembly.
00:47:43
That team, like those guys don't really fit.
00:47:45
Yeah.
00:47:47
I mean, the issue with them is.
00:47:48
First of all, they signed every good power forward and therefore best players.
00:47:52
Air power forward and center.
00:47:53
Ben Simmons is a point forward. Tobias.
00:47:56
Here's a power for Horford and be then I think the other biggest issue with them was coaching, but they've been kind of running that franchise like a college program.
00:48:04
You know, it's every year.
00:48:05
They have a new piece.
00:48:06
It was JJ Red****.
00:48:07
Then it was Jimmy Butler and I was out horses, like Get your group of guys, stick with them and develop them.
00:48:14
Then you have your best perimeter player.
00:48:17
He refuses to shoot threes.
00:48:18
I only can he not shoot three.
00:48:20
He just won't shoot them like I mean their problem.
00:48:23
And you see, kind of with the Bucks to Is that like all their guys, they're all like downhill? Yeah, like the playoffs come around, space gets tighter, you're playing better.
00:48:35
Defense is like you're in a structure.
00:48:38
That's why I like the box.
00:48:39
Not really having any elite shooters like that's why they lost their serious the Heat shot like he were a better shooting team and the Bucks really couldn't get their Opens going, so yeah, I mean, the sixes need to make some trades.
00:48:56
Yeah.
00:48:58
Who were the to pick with the Sixers Would fit Beth.
00:49:02
Like, I mean, I think the mellow actually would probably be.
00:49:05
Yeah, yeah.
00:49:10
Um, you know, that could work.
00:49:13
Um, yeah.
00:49:17
I think that the Timberwolves might get Edward.
00:49:20
I think. I think that's what they might do.
00:49:22
I could see that. I see that 52.
00:49:26
I think they should take the mellow, I think.
00:49:28
Lemelle Russell, Um I think that fits you playing pretty much Botha's.
00:49:35
Yeah.
00:49:36
Change ones and twos.
00:49:37
Um, kind of get into position lists thing there.
00:49:42
Um e think the n b A.
00:49:44
Because you're starting to see it in college, to the teams, they're starting to get more creative with the line of either horns.
00:49:49
There's all year.
00:49:50
They start three point guard for three combo guards all at the same time.
00:49:55
So you all of a sudden everything to get a rebound.
00:49:56
You could just run, right? Like a work trip.
00:50:00
Hey, then, you know about the grand was three this year.
00:50:05
Kerry was Terry.
00:50:07
Yeah, uh, but yeah, I mean, it worked for them.
00:50:12
I think you know, it's kind of with the Knicks.
00:50:16
Can I be looking due to were, like, You know, you're playing.
00:50:19
Kevin knocks at four with around five.
00:50:23
R j is kind of three.
00:50:25
So you're kind of playing almost three guards? Yeah.
00:50:29
Um, there.
00:50:31
But yeah, basketball is changing.
00:50:35
Uh, why, you know, this was actually the J League program is perfect for kind of those big spoke bigs.
00:50:43
That what kind of fading out of the MBA? Don't go away.
00:50:48
Stay year in college, like go at least get NBA coaching.
00:50:51
You are here, you know, develop your skills.
00:50:54
Says you could last longer the MBA.
00:50:57
So what do you think? What's wrong with your Knicks? Okay, we know Dolan's an issue.
00:51:01
We we we know that we've everyone knows that.
00:51:03
But, Mr Robinson, I love Mr Robert.
00:51:05
They don't even playing more than 25 minutes a game.
00:51:08
Um, Knox took a step back then.
00:51:11
The Smith trade kind of bit, Um, not a big fan of R.
00:51:15
J Barry when he played a good season.
00:51:17
I don't not a big fan of his, I guess.
00:51:20
What? Like what's wrong with him, E I mean, I think like they have good players on that roster.
00:51:28
Like, I don't think any of these guys unnecessarily you guys that shouldn't be playing in the n b A.
00:51:34
Um, but what? You know, obviously part of its that they keep going with the let's blow it up and try to get a start here.
00:51:47
And that's failed twice.
00:51:48
Um, they didn't get LeBron didn't get Katie.
00:51:52
I think they're getting damaged.
00:51:55
Which maybe they dio, but it's definitely part of it.
00:52:00
Um, you know, I think previous staff haven't done a good job developing players there.
00:52:06
Um, that's why you know, be on Rose getting that job.
00:52:10
Well, some people were skeptical, like they put together a great staff there so far.
00:52:15
Um, so you know, I think things will trend up for them.
00:52:20
Um, they've hired a lot of, uh, you know, player development guys, uh, you know, they have Johnny Bryant there.
00:52:27
Um, they're putting, you know, the effort into the, um bringing them better skills, training staff and things like that s, I think, you know that will start pushing things in the right direction.
00:52:41
Uh, no, I think it's also something that's just bad luck.
00:52:44
And like you end up Steph curry goes to pick before you.
00:52:49
Yeah.
00:52:50
No, You drop in the lottery.
00:52:51
You miss this guy.
00:52:52
No portion of your stairs.
00:52:53
A C L um you know, Roy Hibbert blocks Melo shot.
00:53:04
Now you lose the basis is the number two seed with number? Yeah, number two seed that year.
00:53:09
So yeah, I think a lot of this is also just bad luck.
00:53:15
Why are they cursed at? Who knows? It's been a rough.
00:53:20
It's been a rough 32 years as the next man.
00:53:22
Uh, but, you know, that's also, like, probably the other tough thing about being an agent.
00:53:28
Now, is that you kind of get a lot like those petty? Yeah, I always go like, Yeah, I hate the Miami Heat.
00:53:34
Hated the Boston Celtics, but like, I can't anymore s like that part kind of sucks, but yeah, hopefully get it together, because, I mean, New York's basketball city Manly E.
00:53:48
When we missed out on the summer, because all this summer outdoor stuff got canceled because the virus, but like knicks win a championship here like whoever does that's gonna be king.
00:53:58
Yeah, whether it's Sean us.
00:53:59
Whether that's no lo mellow, if they ended up somehow getting him, like, if it's, you know, our great barrier.
00:54:05
Like you're gonna be a king.
00:54:07
You'll be bigger than Derrick.
00:54:08
You'll be bigger than, um and I'm like, Yeah, who Who is somebody? You think like the next target? I think Devon vessel from Florida State would be a nice if they could get.
00:54:18
I mean, for the cir***stances that they're in, I think Kevin Brazil would be a good addition.
00:54:22
I think he fits with typical likes to do his defense first, and then Brazil fits that mold.
00:54:28
I agree with that one because I am a far state Fair s Oh, I'd love to see him playing here now.
00:54:34
Uh, but I think it also fits from personal standpoint.
00:54:38
Um, you know, he's definitely one, um, that I like.
00:54:43
I would like Patrick Williams to very good. I like that.
00:54:48
Williams, depending.
00:54:50
You know, you gotta figure out where you're playing.
00:54:53
Um, you know, they also have that other first round pick.
00:54:57
You know, maybe the guy like Carol Lewis.
00:54:59
Yeah.
00:55:01
You know, you could put him in a point garden.
00:55:02
You know, if you keep Frank, he's really good.
00:55:05
Maybe you play Frank off the ball.
00:55:07
Um, you know, there's a couple of guys that I think would fit for them.
00:55:11
Obviously, like Melo fit.
00:55:12
But that's probably out of question.
00:55:14
Um, maybe a coral.
00:55:16
Uh, I guess you that, um Who's the UC guy? Yoga came from.
00:55:27
USC came from USC.
00:55:31
Okay.
00:55:32
Oh, Congo.
00:55:34
Yeah, I think he could fit to, like, obviously you're not getting him.
00:55:38
You're not getting him, but, um, he's probably gone before.
00:55:44
Yeah, they get big like, but I think he's just like they need.
00:55:49
They need some defenders and you guys who can shoot the basketball.
00:55:52
She has a big problem last year.
00:55:54
Like R.
00:55:56
J. Barrett is not a top and shooter yet.
00:55:58
Uh, Kevin Knox is inconsistent.
00:56:01
Um, they don't really have a lot of shooters.
00:56:05
And that doesn't work in faith. MBA.
00:56:09
All right.
00:56:11
That's why I think the cell would be good.
00:56:13
Because, like, you know, you're not landing in LeBron James in this draft like there's no, probably, you know, maybe one of these guys turned into a Donovan Mitchell.
00:56:22
They're like, Hey, this guy's good under the radar, though, it turns out to be a stud.
00:56:28
Yeah, Maybe that happens um, but yeah.
00:56:32
I mean, you have to sell.
00:56:33
You have two first round picks next year.
00:56:34
You got a ton of cap space.
00:56:39
You know, a lot of it's just gonna come down toe the coaching e Think they good coaching hire? Um, I also thought some of the coaching hires we get to didn't work out.
00:56:50
But maybe I'm right on this one.
00:56:52
Um, but yeah.
00:56:54
I mean, they just gotta get the garden back, man.
00:56:57
Um, because even when they're bad, like the place cells out, it's still fun to be at.
00:57:02
But just giving someone basketball, you know for sure? Sure.
00:57:09
Um, so I want to get the woman is a serious topic.
00:57:11
So I see you on social media a lot you're always talking about, You know, you're encouraging people to vote on how important it is to vote.
00:57:17
You know, you're also talking about, you know, you see the racial inequality that's going on in the streets, you know, going on for generations, you know? So talk about why are you, like, Why are you so active? You know why I like what? What makes you You know you don't have to do that you know, a lot of people don't they kind of shy away from it.
00:57:31
That's not, you know, some people is not the thing, but that's your thing.
00:57:34
So why do you Why are you so socially active about it? I mean, when it comes to voting and stuff e think it's pretty obvious why, um way get out of the situation we're in.
00:57:46
Uh, I didn't want him in 2016.
00:57:51
Um, it would be bad.
00:57:53
Did I think it would turn out this bed? No.
00:57:57
Um, but, you know, it's fairly obviously, like we need to change their, um and also, like, you know, thes young kids that, you know, I'm going out there including, like, they're the next ones.
00:58:08
We're gonna be out there, you know, according shaping.
00:58:11
You know how the world's for us.
00:58:13
You know, when we're old S o.
00:58:15
I think it's important.
00:58:16
Thio show these young kids that, like, it's important to get involved in voting.
00:58:22
Um, in, you know? Yeah, like, politics isn't for everyone.
00:58:25
Um, and you know, you have those people who complain about politics, get into sports, but like, this was your life, Like everything in the real world.
00:58:35
like revolves around what goes on in D.
00:58:38
C.
00:58:39
So, um, you know, it's important.
00:58:41
Um, we gotta get this guy out.
00:58:44
Um, like, it's 190,000 people are dead like and he doesn't seem to care.
00:58:50
So, you know, every day.
00:58:53
And, you know, maybe we haven't had a normal summer.
00:58:57
Maybe you have to worry about football being played if, like, he wasn't there.
00:59:02
Um and obviously this, you know, a laundry list of things that were pointing him out for, but yeah, he's just he's not a good person.
00:59:11
Uh, and he doesn't like he just doesn't care like it's him.
00:59:17
Yeah, Yeah, that's not what it's supposed to be about.
00:59:25
And I mean, I also like the waste in the quality stuff, like that stuff I've always I felt strongly about, but I think even more so now you know, being in this position like going in recruiting, you know, 16 17 year old African American kids, you know, how could I in good faith, go and recruit you an extra family, like trust you? If I'm not going to put myself on the line and, you know, stand under you and, you know, have your back because, like, yeah, like, things need to change.
00:59:55
Like African Americans.
00:59:57
Like they can't change it like white people in the majority.
01:00:00
Like we have toe be the ones to change.
01:00:03
Like we're the ones doing messed up stuff.
01:00:06
Uh, like, yeah, like you guys wanted to change.
01:00:10
What? We know that.
01:00:11
But you can't change that on your own.
01:00:13
Like where the majority.
01:00:17
We gotta keep our people in check.
01:00:19
Um, like, yeah, like, you know, call out your racist friend, you know, making racist jokes like that's like, it's not funny, like right.
01:00:27
E might be funny when you were like, you know, 14 years old, but like, it's not like like, it's everything that has happened with best monster **** mess up.
01:00:39
And, you know, like I don't want my kids to have toe grow up in a world where you know, they turn on TV And oh, you know, some guy got shot by the cops and he was unarmed.
01:00:51
Or, you know, some guy got chased down the street and two white guy shot him because he was black, like I don't wanna have to answer those questions like they shouldn't have toe grow up in a world where you know they have to worry about that like it's like the same stuff that happened when our parents were our age.
01:01:13
Like nothing seemed to change or just happens differently, like it's How long, How long do you want to keep living in a world where you know certain people have to worry about? You know, walking outside the house like like I never had to deal with that growing up? Um, you know, I never had to be scared of the cops.
01:01:35
Nobody ever looked at me differently.
01:01:37
It's like, Why should why should someone else have to have that fear like it's just a just a nice issue, you know, we're not being treated the same as everybody else. Like I said, we're getting in.
01:01:50
My biggest issue with it is like they're like, Well, he was.
01:01:53
He had a criminal background before he, But you just so listen to the cops.
01:01:57
You won't be shot.
01:01:58
Well, turning away from the cop doesn't equal death one, and then also your criminal record.
01:02:03
What you've done before that particular moment before that interaction that is completely irrelevant has nothing nothing to do what just transpired and like Like, you're not supposed to Just shooting the guilty person either.
01:02:17
Like, yeah, right.
01:02:21
And like, Yeah, like, maybe like Jacob Blake was no resisting arrest and wrestling with the cause.
01:02:26
But, like, also, there was four of you. There was one a hit.
01:02:29
Yeah, actually, bouncers throw three people out of a bar by themselves.
01:02:37
She tells me, like, four cops like you can't do that.
01:02:39
Maybe you're Maybe you should go becoming, like a crossing guard or something like and my thing with that situation was, they had so much time to get him to the ground.
01:02:49
He walked around the whole length of the car like he did, like, basically, like, he basically covered the entire car.
01:02:56
You have so much time to get this man to the ground or do whatever you have to do before you shot him seven times, right? Because you can't do your job.
01:03:05
Well, doesn't give you the right to shoot some.
01:03:07
Yeah, well, that's what he didn't depend, I guess.
01:03:10
Yeah, maybe he did do some bad things in the past, but that's why we have Sure.
01:03:14
So when you go to trial, that's why we have a justice system like, Yeah.
01:03:19
Like the cops? Yeah, he pointed a gun at him.
01:03:22
You know what a different story, but that's not what happened.
01:03:26
Like, so, yeah.
01:03:28
I mean, a lot of stuff gotta change.
01:03:29
Um, hopefully it does.
01:03:31
Hopefully we, you know, make some progress, but yes.
01:03:36
Yeah, it just makes you sick to turn on the TV and see someone else.
01:03:40
You go on Twitter, you know, you see another person unarmed getting shot, you know, like like like What the hell are we doing, man? Like you didn't mean If yeah, I mean, you know, this stuff has been going on for generations.
01:03:58
Just that now, you know, we have cameras and cell phones and we can record and see everything.
01:04:02
And now you know, it's being spread across like I mean, like I said, Now, you can't turn on that.
01:04:06
You can't click on Twitter without seeing that, and it's just that it's like it's like every other day, something on something is going on like that.
01:04:12
Like, what are we missing? Like the seventies? Because Yeah.
01:04:15
What? Right, right.
01:04:17
But I also like what do we still missing that, like you know.
01:04:21
You see, like what isn't getting called Like, what's happening when you know there's not a credit people with their cell phones up because, like, this is happening with you're seeing all this stuff? Is someone recorded on the cell phone? It's like when I was 18.
01:04:33
When people are around.
01:04:35
Yeah, like, that's probably the scariest thing.
01:04:39
Then, you know, the cops are doing it and nothing.
01:04:41
Nothing happens when they get paid leave.
01:04:43
And they get to come back to work with 67 months and nothing, you know, they just move on, right? Like, not even like, yeah, like, there's definitely times where cops justified.
01:04:53
I didn't have to shoot someone, Um, like nothing against cops like, Yeah, there are good cops, obviously.
01:05:00
Like I have friends.
01:05:01
They're cops.
01:05:02
Like they're good people.
01:05:04
But if people that you work with are doing this, are you still good? If you don't stand up? Yeah, you know, point.
01:05:15
Hey, like, this is wrong.
01:05:17
Like, we shouldn't be doing this.
01:05:18
Like if you're gonna be silent in it.
01:05:21
You can't complain about you know, people judging and try and hold you accountable.
01:05:26
Like that's not how it works.
01:05:29
I mean even Chris Rock.
01:05:30
He said, Make a joke about He said, They're copies in the job where you can have a few bad apples, you know, like imagine if you said that about the Pilo.
01:05:37
Most of our pilots like the land, but we have a few bad apples that don't.
01:05:40
Well, what happens when the few that don't people get killed? Same thing happened with when you have a few bad apples.
01:05:49
It's not like you're a like, you know, a teacher that you're just a bad teacher.
01:05:53
And, you know, your students are gonna fail like you're talking about life and death here.
01:05:58
Like there's no bringing someone back from being dead.
01:06:01
There's no middle ground once you're dead.
01:06:03
Yeah, there's no middle ground like is all right? Well, you messed up, we'll just fire you and everything will be okay.
01:06:09
Like no, like their debt.
01:06:12
Like your family.
01:06:14
That's going apart forever.
01:06:17
Yeah, it's not.
01:06:18
It's not like you were bad at your stock trading job.
01:06:21
You want the company a couple million bucks.
01:06:23
All right, we'll just fire you, replace you like we'll make that couple million bucks back.
01:06:28
It's something you can't have.
01:06:30
You know, people are like, Yeah, there definitely are cops out there that are, you know, bad people.
01:06:37
Join probably did, like, have that power ship.
01:06:40
And you do some of this **** we see and like, you can't have that, like, I mean, nobody should have to have a fear of they get pulled over, and this guy might pull out is going on me.
01:06:53
Yeah, I agree.
01:06:55
Yeah, I mean, some of them they're scared anyway.
01:06:57
You know, they were kinda bullied as a kid, and they had their own, you know, issues going on.
01:07:01
So this is now the time where they can get back, get back to the people that treated them, barely know you give a coward a gun.
01:07:08
You know, the all types of random possibilities that can happen.
01:07:11
And you see what goes on weekly, right? I mean, you see, like, that 17 year old kid like the normal kids not doing that, you know, he wants to be a cop, right? Like all the kids issue of schools.
01:07:26
Like something happened that made you want to do that like, Well, maybe I'm just different and like like, just everyone start being good people are like, Yeah.
01:07:39

00:01:36
I think they'll be okay.
00:01:38
I my biggest and sounded with college football and college basketball, but we'll see what they do.
00:01:43
Yeah.
00:01:44
No, definitely.
00:01:45
Yeah.
00:01:46
I mean, the NFL's gonna play.
00:01:47
What happened? Thank too much shot.
00:01:51
Billions left.
00:01:52
Yeah, Yeah, they're gonna push through, no matter what.
00:01:57
College is gonna be interesting.
00:01:58
Yeah, for sure.
00:01:59
I mean, with NFL, you know, I mean, especially in the south.
00:02:02
You know, we don't you know you're in New York. I'm in Houston.
00:02:05
We don't care, like you know.
00:02:06
That's just how how it is.
00:02:08
Unfortunately, we know we don't really, I care.
00:02:10
But, you know, the people with power don't really care about the coronavirus or whatever is going on.
00:02:15
They're gonna like you said they're gonna play, uh, regardless.
00:02:18
But so, you know, the NBA playoffs is going on.
00:02:21
The Lakers take on the Rockets tonight.
00:02:22
What have you been? What have you thought so far about the NBA playoffs, You know, from start to finish in this whole bubble? No, If we ask what is going on.
00:02:30
I mean, like, early on the bubble, Um, when you had those games that were, you know, 1 58 to, you know, 1 49 and almost like they were elite athletes playing in a high school gym.
00:02:44
E was like, This isn't, you know, kind of what I expected.
00:02:49
Um, is it like nobody There's nobody want to play defense? Um, is it just, you know, the no fans thing? It makes it.
00:02:57
Make sure you here.
00:02:59
Um but now it seems like everyone's kind of kind of coming back toe earth a little bit.
00:03:04
Um, was it that the who was the game the other day? That was, like, ended in, like nineties? Yeah, that Game seven and in the nineties.
00:03:14
So I mean, they seem to be coming down to Earth in terms of the unreal offensive.
00:03:20
Um, and, you know, obviously, before last night, I thought the Celtics were gonna be a lock.
00:03:27
There are the East with the box having their problems and not getting eliminated.
00:03:32
But now I guess we'll see what happens with the Game seven there.
00:03:37
Yeah.
00:03:38
So I did this thing with NBA dot com.
00:03:39
They have this, like bracket challenge.
00:03:41
They were doing so So far, I've been 100% accurate.
00:03:45
I don't know how many brackets are perfect.
00:03:47
You know, it's not like college basketball.
00:03:48
I think MBA is a little bit more predictable, but I have to heat beating the books.
00:03:52
So I had the Raptors beating the Celtics and seven games.
00:03:57
I was scared at first because, you know, they were, to be honest, they should have swept them, or they should have beat them in five realistically, But, you know, I know, but here's the crazy three.
00:04:07
They give up Game six and then either syriza's Todd.
00:04:09
Somehow, some way the game is tied.
00:04:11
Anything can happen in Game seven, so I don't know I gotta look to see how Maney brackets are accurate.
00:04:17
But realistically, I want the Celtics to win.
00:04:20
But for my own, I guess selfish selfishness.
00:04:22
Of course, I want the Raptors to win because I want to get whatever MBA dot com is going to give me.
00:04:27
So who do you have in that Siri's? Thank you.
00:04:30
I'm just gonna stick with Celtics, Okay? I think I don't think that there, you know, crazy better than the Raptors e think a have more close to the players like, I don't think Tatum and Brown or like elite players yet, but I think they're the two best players in the Siri's.
00:04:54
I agree.
00:04:55
And, you know, at the end of day, this bubble kind of as a whole college basketball field and you know, you win the answer level tournament by having you know the better players or getting extremely lucky.
00:05:09
But I'm gonna say with the Celtics there, Yeah, I mean, if I for me, I want to see the Celtics play the Heat in the Eastern Conference, and I think that will be the better matchup.
00:05:19
And like you said, I think the Celtics have the Brown Kimber then I probably Hilarion Siachen will be four or five.
00:05:34
I could make the argument.
00:05:35
Could see I could mention played that well in the playoffs so far.
00:05:38
Yeah, I mean e think, um Fred French? Yeah.
00:05:43
Fred Fred's? Yeah.
00:05:44
Fresh balling.
00:05:47
Uh, yeah.
00:05:48
I could totally see the Raptors pulling it off. It'll be interesting.
00:05:51
Um, Game Seven.
00:05:53
The home court advantage Like this game was in Toronto employing field.
00:06:04
So I'm also in the talks.
00:06:07
Yeah, I mean, so far, But it looks good, though, you know, the I mean the obviously there's no fan, but the MBA, in my opinion, they've done a good job, You know, it doesn't obviously, you know, fans out there, but it looks good, like the guys are playing hard.
00:06:20
You know, if they're playing competitive, you kind of get to hear all the arguing and bickering back and forth.
00:06:24
You know, three camera angles.
00:06:26
They're nice. The broadcast has been pretty good.
00:06:28
I think if it looks like an n b a game to me, it doesn't feel that was different to me.
00:06:32
I'm kind of used to it now.
00:06:34
Now? Yeah.
00:06:35
I mean, they've done an incredible job pulling the whole thing off.
00:06:38
I think they missed a revenue opportunity to not have, like, a pay per view version where the talk on the court has edited out because I think a lot of people would have paid you watch that.
00:06:55
But they've done a great job, especially the union.
00:06:58
And, you know, they've gone.
00:06:59
They went down there, and they haven't really had a now outbreak.
00:07:02
Um, thank you.
00:07:04
Saw baseball have where? I'm assuming, you know, something will probably happen in the NFL.
00:07:11
Um, because not being in a bubble situations just gonna lead to that happening.
00:07:16
But now they've done an incredible job.
00:07:19
Put that whole thing together, um, and just knock on whether we want to do it again next year.
00:07:24
Right? So in a transition that you're an MBA agent, you currently have two guys dare Griffin and Devin Bachmann are currently in the D League.
00:07:33
Are you? Ah, you know, really familiar with the N B.
00:07:35
A G league program.
00:07:36
Have you seen what they're doing with that? Yeah, and obviously you're Texas Tech guys.
00:07:42
That kind of stole your guys chance to the national championship not getting committed.
00:07:48
Uh, yeah, I like it.
00:07:52
Um and I do get the kind of skepticism because they're not playing, you know, an actual dealing schedule.
00:07:59
We're gonna play some games teams.
00:08:01
Most of it's gonna be scrimmages and stuff, eh? So I get the skepticism of that, Um I think it's a good alternative because, you know, some kids just aren't built to go to school, right? You know, like whether it's academically, whether it's, you know, personality wise, where it's like, what is Jonathan could make? I have to prove your average, like, not even a year.
00:08:26
He'll be there with six months, maybe.
00:08:28
Yeah, from, you know, watching him.
00:08:30
And you know, all the stuff like That's a kid who kids get college.
00:08:35
Yeah, all right.
00:08:37
So I think he's a good alternative until they get rid of the one and done rule how good it works.
00:08:44
Who knows? Um, yeah, I think it's an easier situation for kids than pulling a little mellow ball on going overseas because, you know, 17 18 year old kid going to another country, notably difficulty.
00:08:58
It's not easy thing to dio, All right, so it's definitely, um, it's definitely gonna be interesting.
00:09:07
I think it will work out.
00:09:10
We'll see.
00:09:11
But I'm fine with so far.
00:09:15
I mean, I like the idea.
00:09:16
I think that it's it's new.
00:09:18
You know what? You *** like the new Shiny told the blocking.
00:09:20
Everyone wants to go see what it is and see what it does.
00:09:23
I mean, I have some questions about I actually wrote the story, um, about it.
00:09:27
You know, my biggest thing is, you know, the kids, like you said not everyone's academically inclined or, you know, this doesn't fit their personality.
00:09:33
My biggest concern was I just wanna make sure the kids air fully aware of what they're getting themselves into, you know, just for example.
00:09:41
You know Isaiah, Todd.
00:09:42
He goes over there.
00:09:43
Let's say he doesn't play well.
00:09:46
Well, how does that one affect his draft stock to, Especially next year? Next, you're gonna be a very, very deep draft.
00:09:52
So you know, you're gonna see some guys, you know, if they don't play well in college or, God forbid, they don't play well in the D League pro program, that might be, You know, he might be going back to the G league again, or he could be potentially playing overseas.
00:10:05
There's nothing wrong with that.
00:10:06
It's just a financial you know, you're looking at, you know, in college if you play bad, you can come back.
00:10:11
You play bad again, you could continue to come back.
00:10:13
And some kids, you know, they're betting on themselves, and I'm all for that.
00:10:16
But it's my concern is just you go over there, you don't play bad, then was next that type of then Then I'm also looking at, like, you know, injuries.
00:10:25
What happens if you get hurt? You know that money if you get hurt or if you play, But is that money pro rated? How does that affect your financial stability? Long term? Yeah.
00:10:36
I mean, I'm pretty sure the money and stuff is all guaranteed, but, like, bring up a good point that, like, also as anti he goes to college, you know, whether was skin wherever he would have ended up, you probably dominates, um, states of Trump pick.
00:10:50
Now you're saying you know, some games against guys who are trying to fight against the MBA, Um, like, yeah, he's probably gonna look, you know, not as good as he would have looked playing in the Big 10.
00:11:02
All right, So definitely is a risk to his draft stock.
00:11:07
But I think you have toe kind of almost bank on the fact that, um, you know, an MBA team he's gonna is taking him off his potential.
00:11:15
Like it's probably not gonna matter much how you perform here because you're going into a situation where you know you're getting MBA level training.
00:11:24
Um, it's not like I think what's going to matter more for a kid like him is, you know, the practices, how he looks in practice, how he, you know, accepts his coaching and you know what they want to change on them more so than, like, the actual games he plays in because I think as it to be executive like you have toe kind of resign yourself to the fact that some of these games is gonna be going up against 27 28 year old guys.
00:11:49
Who your true in the MBA already? Um, so I I don't think the games will hurt his draft.
00:11:55
Like, I think what could potentially hurting kids draft truck is you know, if they don't, you know, take the coaching Well, if you buy into the whole system.
00:12:05
Um, I think that will probably hurt these guys.
00:12:08
Stopped more than you know how they actually play the game.
00:12:11
Yeah.
00:12:12
I mean, nothing is too, you know, like you said, they're playing against grown men.
00:12:15
You know, if I'm a Geely guy, you know, I've been to Geely 3456 years, And I'm playing against Jalen Greene.
00:12:21
He are, you know, arguably probably number one.
00:12:23
Well, it could be the number one overall pick or Jonathan commingle, whoever I'm gonna try to boss up.
00:12:28
You know, this is this is film I could use to get signed for for, you know, MBA roster.
00:12:32
So, you know, I gotta, you know, bully him a little bit, you know, kind of putting, you know, show him who big bro is, per se.
00:12:39
I'm gonna try and do that because, you know, I didn't want to feed my family too, but no, you know, these kids definitely have targets on their back.
00:12:46
There's no doubt about that.
00:12:48
Um, like, I haven't really seen you know Todd Greene too much in person.
00:12:53
Um, but I've seen come into play a lot in person.
00:12:56
Uh, and I think he'll handle that final.
00:12:58
They can almost relish that on, you know, accept that challenge.
00:13:04
But now, yeah, I mean, they're gonna have targets on their back.
00:13:07
Um, and yeah, it's gonna be a good learning experience, huh? But I think definitely green coming to Todd.
00:13:15
Like they'll still probably say, first round draft picks, the other kids Knicks and Soto and sing.
00:13:27
I don't know if they were first round picks going into this, all right? Like, I guess you them totally being guys who were, you know, two years in the select program, or even slight program.
00:13:39
And, you know, there are year in the D League and then enter the draft.
00:13:43
Um, those guys are gonna be a little more if he, um I could almost probably guarantee you that coming Go green entitled.
00:13:52
You drank that morning 2021.
00:13:54
And I agree, obviously, in college basketball, you can't play players, unfortunately, but you can't pay them legally, but yeah, my point is just that, For example, look at u c l.
00:14:11
A Knicks.
00:14:12
He commits there, but then all of a sudden, he changed his mind.
00:14:16
He goes to the league one.
00:14:17
That team is now screwed because you know, their five star point guard isn't coming anymore.
00:14:22
You know, he you know that they've been recruiting this guy all year, really years now, and he commits that.
00:14:27
He changed his mind. Fine.
00:14:29
Well, Yvonne, you know, build stuff at Kansas or Kruger at Oklahoma.
00:14:35
It's already hard enough for me to compete with Kansas, Kentucky, Duke.
00:14:39
You know, all these big programs, But now I'm competing against, you know, other premier school.
00:14:44
But I'm also completely, completely gets a pro program or they're paying these kids, you know, $1,250,000 for me.
00:14:53
I mean, I know they've been cheating before, but now I almost feel like it's worth it, because what what? What can I You know, What can I do to get this kid to come down with me? And I'm already Kansas already, you know, telling him X, Y and Z and doing God knows what underneath the table.
00:15:08
So what can I do as Oklahoma, you know? Ah, you t whatever school, Can I get this kid to come to my pro because I'm coming? I was even harder for kids to recruit him right now.
00:15:17
Yeah, I mean, obviously, like it's already worth it to do.
00:15:21
It s it really gets caught, even like, and it's like they got caught in, like, what happened, like s.
00:15:28
Oh, yeah.
00:15:29
I mean, I think it definitely it kind of makes it tougher for those schools that are not, you know, not contenders, but those ones that are kind of in the middle.
00:15:37
Like the u C L.
00:15:38
A s the, um, Oklahoma's theme the, you know, Virginia texts that are, you know, in the tournament they were really compete.
00:15:47
But right now, maybe I could go all out, you know, drama, couple bags.
00:15:51
And yes, Claire, just because what the hell like? Yeah, like, I could definitely see that.
00:16:02
But you're also seeing more international teams getting the Knicks.
00:16:05
Like Mike Foster has got three international country as options, um, the the league.
00:16:12
And then for, um, you know, college teams.
00:16:16
So instead, the landscapes definitely changing.
00:16:19
Um, but yeah.
00:16:22
I mean, the cheating is still gonna be there.
00:16:24
Uh, been there? Yeah.
00:16:28
Yeah.
00:16:30
So yeah, I think the only thing is going to stop that is, you know, kids being able to get paid, So I agree.
00:16:39
So What do you think about, You know, like so Lemelle Abadie this year, Um, RJ Hampton did as well.
00:16:45
You know, you have these high school kids or hard recruits.
00:16:47
They go overseas for a year, you know, you know, go.
00:16:49
You know, like you said colleges and for everybody, you know, I'm I'm forward.
00:16:52
But my only concern is ah, lot of those kids.
00:16:55
They go over the overseas for you and they and they it's hard over there.
00:16:59
You know, those players are very because also grown in.
00:17:02
You know, sometimes I would say a lot of the time they go overseas, they don't play well.
00:17:08
They come to the MBA that usually lottery picks high first round picks and they continue to struggle.
00:17:13
And my and I'm missing anybody other than I think Brandon Jennings and he, you know, he's even played eight years in the NBA.
00:17:20
They go over the overseas, they come to the n b A.
00:17:22
And it's just good luck.
00:17:23
You know, they're not having the successful careers as we expect.
00:17:27
Manual Moody is an example.
00:17:28
You know, you're having some of these guys.
00:17:29
Josh Shelby.
00:17:31
They go over there for a year they come back, They're just not as good.
00:17:34
Yeah. I mean, I'm not really sure.
00:17:36
You what causes that? Because, like, maybe they were just overhyped to begin with, Uh, but also, like, it is a different game over there, right? So, like, are you really getting an MBA type of, you know, educational.
00:17:51
They're like, Yeah, like the college game is different than the MBA, but like, it's still like American style basketball.
00:17:57
Like, obviously, unless you're playing, you know, for Virginia, where they have their, you know, 40 point game offense that just kills time off the clock and miserable watching television.
00:18:07
Like, you know, you're still playing American style basketball.
00:18:12
Eso like I mean, maybe that's it.
00:18:15
Um, maybe these guys just want as good as like, we all thought they were, um e I think Lemelle is gonna be probably It's a litmus test for God overseas.
00:18:27
Like, I think he's gonna be a stud.
00:18:29
Um, uh, he's just started.
00:18:32
Like I think you might Seymour guys try to go that route, all right? No.
00:18:38
Yeah.
00:18:39
It's definitely like transitioning as a 17 year old going overseas from another country playing a different style of basketball sometimes in a situation where, like, you're not gonna get minutes right away.
00:18:50
Like what? I think what's different with Melo is like Australia specifically, Um, I've spoken to the commissioner there.
00:18:57
Ah, bunch.
00:18:58
Like they specifically want to bring in thes lottery pick type players type.
00:19:04
They're gonna play them, and they're marking them, as you know, big part of their league.
00:19:09
Whereas when Jennings and Moody's went overseas like they weren't, you know, I don't want to like a marketing toy, but, like, they, they're just pieces out of it.
00:19:22
You'd like.
00:19:23
I'll show you, you know, is using these guys to build their leader e there, You know, 30 35 minutes scheme.
00:19:31
E think it's kind of a little girl situation.
00:19:33
And when some of those guys we're going overseas a few years ago.
00:19:37
Um, but yeah.
00:19:38
I mean, like, if melo melo somehow busted Theune, I think that gives the Djelic select kind of a advantage to program.
00:19:49
Um, because right now it's just the one Julie team and can say, Hey, I wanna go play in the league like you can say, I wanna go overseas like the jelly has come to you.
00:20:00
E Todd and say, Hey, we want use will pay you.
00:20:06
Whereas, you know, kid ranked 120th in the country, can you say All right, I'm going to skip college.
00:20:12
We go overseas, you know, Germany for a year.
00:20:16
Um so, like the flow Melo bus That kind of gives the G league the leverage where All right, maybe we can create, you know, 16 division of these college kids, you know, they play each other and they play, you know, 10 games and actual village team eso It doesn't be interested, but, I mean, I think low Mello's going to start, Uh, my next e.
00:20:42
Obviously, that's probably gonna happen anymore, because we can win a lottery to save our lives.
00:20:47
But, you know, I think he's gonna be stuck wherever he ends up.
00:20:51
I think he's just got that personality.
00:20:53
I think his game is more complete in Alonso's.
00:20:57
Yeah, um, and you can learn from him.
00:21:00
He can learn from his mistakes or the route that he took.
00:21:02
He can learn, which I think is kind of already done.
00:21:05
Yeah, like from everything I've heard.
00:21:07
Like, he's like, levar doesn't have the controlling like the Yeah, that whole sideshow stuff like doesn't faze lo Melo lines.
00:21:19
Was the first one that had deal with that? Um, definitely.
00:21:22
Probably wasn't, you know, ready for what was coming.
00:21:26
All right, well, I saw that he was, like, all right, Like, I'm not going down that path.
00:21:31
So now I think some will be fine.
00:21:34
Um, but now, you know, obviously the whole coronavirus changes might change guys going overseas in general because it's completely screwed up the overseas market and stuff.
00:21:48
Do you think that it was fair that the Geely they kind of undermine college programs? I was kind of getting the comparison like you're married.
00:21:55
You're on the altar with your beautiful while.
00:21:57
She's, you know, she's looking as good as she wanna look.
00:21:59
And then this random No, Dude comes down the aisle.
00:22:04
Uh, Lisa, I wanna marry you.
00:22:06
Now to here's here's this car right here.
00:22:10
Come on, babe.
00:22:11
Let's go.
00:22:12
And she leaves, You know, like bam.
00:22:14
Like I would be I would be really, really ****ed if I was you stealing because I heard Coach was mad.
00:22:19
I heard he was He didn't address it publicly.
00:22:22
But do you think that's fair? for them The once the kid has already signed.
00:22:26
Should they be able to do that? I mean, nothing's fair business.
00:22:29
Um, yeah, that's true.
00:22:31
And you? I think that there's otherwise have their chance toe make it.
00:22:38
So this kind of thing wouldn't happen, right? Like, yeah, kids for decades.
00:22:45
So, like they had their chance.
00:22:46
They've refused to do that.
00:22:49
Now the NBA's gonna say, Hey, all right.
00:22:50
You don't wanna pay them.
00:22:53
We'll pay them, and right, we create our own minor league system here.
00:22:58
Um, yeah.
00:23:01
You know, the day NC double A, I could say something's non PG about the Yeah, uh, especially how they started the whole certification program, which Yeah, complete joke, but, um, yeah, I mean, they had their chance.
00:23:18
They wanna protect, you know, their sanctity of amateurism, which now we're seeing with college football is China doesn't exist.
00:23:27
If you know, all these kids are going to stay on campus and you might send your regular students home.
00:23:34
Like now these kids aren't bathroom anymore.
00:23:36
So, like, yeah, they had their chance to prevent the J League program from taking off again.
00:23:41
E don't wanna take is they fight even on small marketing stuff.
00:23:44
So I mean, like, yeah, I mean I mean, they kind of the n c a.
00:23:51
They kind of I mean, it's just 2020 you know, kids now, And they were smarter than we've ever been with more creative than we've ever been.
00:23:58
We're just aware, too, so much, so many things, you know, technology, social media.
00:24:01
They're trying to run it like this is like the seventies and eighties.
00:24:04
You know, kids are a lot smarter than they were, you know, 40 years ago.
00:24:07
Those guys who played years ago Yeah, yeah, it's good.
00:24:11
Kids now are waking up like, Hey, it doesn't make sense that I can't sign my jersey and sell it for 100 bucks like that.
00:24:17
I can't do a commercial for someone.
00:24:21
E mean, look at ****** Williams.
00:24:23
He's what, 16 He has what, two million followers on Instagram like he's already a brand.
00:24:29
He's already a brand at at 16 which is, you know, crazy.
00:24:32
But, you know, he realized I'm you know, No, just self know your worth.
00:24:37
You know, I'm seeing with X amount of followers.
00:24:40
I want a piece of the pot too, right and, like, obviously way too soon to see to say that you know, Michael Jordan is gonna be some MBA Mark.
00:24:49
But that said, he continues to be this good and he's 17 years old, like Okay, so what does the c w give Mia's Mikey Williams to benefit from? Like, I could go play for you for free, not make any money? Technically, um, play for a year, possibly get hurt? Yeah, possibly hurt my draft stock.
00:25:11
Or I could go to the D League.
00:25:12
I could get paid 500 grand.
00:25:15
A million dollars once endor*****t stuff are, I am.
00:25:20
I don't have to worry about going to class like So you want kids like, not go Julie, grab or not go overseas or when they're one and done rule that you don't want to go straight to the NBA like All right, what's your value? E college.
00:25:37
Anytime.
00:25:38
Go get an education like I could play five years in the n B.
00:25:41
A.
00:25:42
I mean, go to college for you, like you could do that at any point.
00:25:47
So what's my benefit to go in to play college basketball when all these NBA teams already know who I am When I'm 15 years old.
00:25:56
Like everyone knew in the NBA.
00:25:58
Knew they were all right.
00:25:59
The issue.
00:26:00
But we probably should have to try to get this kid John Dominga 2021 like they do that a couple years ago.
00:26:06
You know, what's the benefit to Jonathan? Continue to going things that really like.
00:26:11
There is not I'm not making any money from it.
00:26:13
Why? Um you know why.
00:26:16
Take that chance.
00:26:17
Yeah.
00:26:18
E also, you know, like a head coach.
00:26:20
E mean tech coach.
00:26:21
Beer did it.
00:26:22
He was at UNLV for, like a now, er that he changed his mind and want to take.
00:26:27
You know, all those kids are probably, you know, we get a new head coach, whatever, whatever, whether he leaves.
00:26:31
So, you know, I guess I mean, in that same token enough, Or if a kid wants to, you know, change his life, financial, make a different decision, You know, he should have that right.
00:26:39
The coach could do it.
00:26:40
The players should do the same thing. Yeah.
00:26:42
I mean, you know, U c l a coach.
00:26:44
Whoever coaches like a new job overcomes up there under contract.
00:26:48
They believe what any kid leave his commitment to go like.
00:26:53
You should have done a better job committing into the right about now. That's fair.
00:26:59
So, you know, chronic from 17.
00:27:08
Especially guys going over.
00:27:09
See? How are you? What are you telling your guys? You know, prepare them for the upcoming season.
00:27:14
You also have a rookie that you have.
00:27:16
Ah, Jalen Cooper.
00:27:17
You know, how are you? Because it's uncertain some people might not be going overseas at all.
00:27:21
You know, health risk, You know, team on my little brother.
00:27:24
I was just talking him last night.
00:27:25
He had a potential offer to oversee the team.
00:27:27
They ended up choosing, um, veteran guys that have played overseas before.
00:27:31
They didn't want the young guys.
00:27:32
So he's still waiting.
00:27:34
So what are you telling your guys to help prepare them? You know that next step in the basketball court? Yeah.
00:27:39
I mean, um, Likas much they can like, there's just no certainly out there.
00:27:45
Especially now.
00:27:47
You know, it came out today that the NBA season is probably not going to start until Christmas or later.
00:27:52
Um, that means like the G league season.
00:27:55
Probably not start until January to double dip go overseas by the time that, like doing season, starting to come back and play in the league.
00:28:08
Um, like the problem is a lot of countries cut down on, you know, the numbers imports to bring in last summer's overseas market Was that in terms of, you know, salary and stuff? I tried to get a, um, deal overseas for a guy who played three or four years in the NBA.
00:28:28
Um, who's making he made.
00:28:32
I'm like, 100 115 k in China Ondas team.
00:28:37
And I forgot the country wanted them.
00:28:39
Um and they were like, How much? How much do you want? So you need to, like, at least 100.
00:28:45
Come on.
00:28:46
And they're like, Well, we could do 35.
00:28:48
Like So, Like, the market was bad.
00:28:52
Salary wise already last year.
00:28:54
This'll is making it a lot worse.
00:28:56
Um, yeah.
00:28:57
A lot of countries still don't know.
00:28:59
You know, when they're seasons, they're going to start.
00:29:01
Um, yeah, technically, like us citizens still under allowed and most of yeah, yeah, it's a mess.
00:29:12
Eso trying to see, like, what's out there for some of these guys? Just tell them to make sure they stay in shape.
00:29:19
Um, if we can double dip will try.
00:29:21
Um, it's not, you know, just get ready for a e.
00:29:32
Don't get that sense just because they put all this.
00:29:36
Oh, you know, the plan e a plan? How many games? And when it starts, who knows? But else happened, but yeah, it's just tough and things they don't have any Like rookies coming into this draft.
00:29:54
Not really, thankfully, like, rather have them.
00:29:57
Yeah, a couple of kids I was recruiting went back to school.
00:30:02
Um, instead of entering the draft.
00:30:04
So, like, because this is, you know, these guys are not gonna be sitting around until November until the draft.
00:30:10
Like, it's it's a tough spot for everybody.
00:30:13
Yeah, yeah.
00:30:15
I mean, because I know there was a key.
00:30:17
I think it was a big 12 or a Big 10 school.
00:30:19
I remember it was it was a big 12 school.
00:30:22
His guy, he was from overseas, and, you know, he was waiting to come to the States for months, like 23 months, and they would not let him come over here.
00:30:30
So he has just been like going back and forth to the airport.
00:30:32
Sometimes he would be in the airport, like weeks.
00:30:34
Just, you know, just sitting there waiting.
00:30:36
And I think they finally let him into America, I believe, two weeks ago.
00:30:40
So he finally got to be with this team and get on camp.
00:30:42
You know, he's already, you know, behind because he just hasn't been here.
00:30:45
So I kind of felt, you know, bad for the kid, because, you know, that's not his own father for dealing with a crazy time right now.
00:30:51
And he has no control over that, right? Yeah.
00:30:53
I mean, that's the thing.
00:30:54
Like, nobody can really control any of this.
00:30:57
Um, and it's been and interesting, really.
00:31:02
I mean, right before everything shut down.
00:31:04
I was at, you know, the A 10 tournament.
00:31:06
Yeah, got home from that and then within a couple hours to go, there was positive.
00:31:17
Five months, So, yeah, it's been crazy.
00:31:21
Have have your guys, but I'm I'm Well, I don't know them personally, but I'm very for me.
00:31:26
But David Griffin, I played against him in high school.
00:31:28
But how? Your guy, you know, health, while you know, they being smart, you know? Just you know just basic possibly know where mass, You know? Just be smart.
00:31:36
Do you have any, like, however they, you know, just being with this whole problem? No, it's hard for them because they want to do certain things, but they just can't.
00:31:43
Yeah, yeah.
00:31:44
I mean, they've been good through the whole process.
00:31:45
Um, do what they gotta do. Wearing mass.
00:31:48
Um, you know, not being stupid and going, uh, crowded parties and stuff.
00:31:54
Yeah.
00:31:55
Now they've been good to this whole thing.
00:31:57
So we talked about this off their, um, you know, with the Daniel housing, there's there's a lot of, you know, random.
00:32:03
I don't even know what to believe at this point.
00:32:05
There's been so many stories.
00:32:07
Even we were on the podcast.
00:32:08
32 minutes.
00:32:09
I'm getting just alerts on my phone every two minutes about what's going.
00:32:13
I don't even want to read it anymore.
00:32:14
But, you know, with you know, you're dealing with young male athletes.
00:32:20
They have a lot of testosterone, and, you know, stuff happens.
00:32:25
How do you You know, you know, the guys that we wanna do stuff, you know, women, beautiful women everywhere.
00:32:31
How do you deal with you know, keeping those guys, you know, like man. Come on, you.
00:32:34
I get it.
00:32:35
But you got to realize, how do you deal with? Maybe your guys don't like that, but I know you know, other agents.
00:32:39
How do you or do you know other guys that deal with, like, knuckleheads per se? Um, yeah.
00:32:43
I mean, obviously there's, you know, some technicalities.
00:32:46
Yeah, technically, she was in the bubble, right? He's not trying to find a loophole that didn't work.
00:32:51
He tried to.
00:32:53
So, I mean, my memory comes some slack there.
00:32:57
Uh, but yeah.
00:32:59
I mean, honestly, like you kind of just gotta put yourself just, you know, if I was 23 years old again, like in that situation, like Alright, yeah, I'd probably do what they were trying to dio.
00:33:10
What kind of just be that a dolphin like? Hey, like, you know, it's not like you be smart.
00:33:19
Thank you.
00:33:20
Like I've never had any guy who's gotten into Yeah, trouble.
00:33:24
Uh, it's stupid trouble like that or, like, you know, legal trouble or anything.
00:33:29
So, um yeah, definitely.
00:33:32
Just obviously.
00:33:34
You know, when I was 23 stupid stuff to, you know, just kind of understanding that they all you know, they're going to do stupid stuff.
00:33:43
Yeah, because you're young and having money.
00:33:45
All right? So just making sure they don't do anything to super.
00:33:49
Yeah, I mean, no, I completely I mean, I don't I see what he tried to do.
00:33:53
And he's also from my hometown.
00:33:56
So I've been around him a few times.
00:33:57
I know his trainer, but I get it like I silly tried through it, just like Come on, man.
00:34:03
Like, because Because the issue with him is I don't think you know God for I don't want this to happen to him.
00:34:08
But he's good enough in the big enough piece on the Rockets, so I don't think it will affect him that much.
00:34:14
But, you know, let's say it's the guy That's the 11 12 men on the bench.
00:34:18
You know, he hasn't played all bubble.
00:34:20
He that guy could be in a situation where you know, they cut him because, you know, because because it's like it just it's not worth it, you know? Now you gotta be smart trying to sneak the girl into the hotel room and he was a friend.
00:34:34
Cut like your career might be over now.
00:34:37
Yeah, like Russell Westbrook trying to pull something like that like Russell Westbrook's not get cut like you're the you know, 13th, 14th guy who's, ah, borderline NBA player.
00:34:48
Probably your player like your cut.
00:34:50
You're probably get another job.
00:34:52
Yeah, like a happening right Then it's just then it's like, you don't wanna be that guy that ruins it for everybody, like, you know, God forbid.
00:35:02
But let's just, you know, let's say someone does try to do that.
00:35:05
And God forbid he he or she has co vid.
00:35:09
That whole thing is just done like, yeah, like you don't want you together ruins debate.
00:35:15
But, uh, that will follow you around the rest of career.
00:35:19
Uh, I mean, yeah, yeah.
00:35:22
I mean, look at look at the kicker, The kicker that I think he played for the Cowboys of the Redskins.
00:35:26
This when Jerry's well just got built.
00:35:28
He punted a ball and it got stuck at the top of the rafters.
00:35:32
He never they cut him.
00:35:33
He never got a doppelganger.
00:35:35
Well, he never he never played again.
00:35:37
That's a day and like, it kind of goes along with, you know, one of the guys that I know, um does a lot of recruiting on stuff you like, Obviously great players gonna make the MBA.
00:35:50
You could be a great player at the MBA, but you gotta be.
00:35:54
Your time has to be perfect.
00:35:55
Everything has to fall into place.
00:35:57
Whether it's, you know, someone getting hurt, um or, you know, you end up like Alonso tree like you're on a 10 day, you have to play.
00:36:04
Really Well, now you get a contract.
00:36:07
So, like part of being a good player and trying to last name bays not doing stupid, you cut your a lottery pick.
00:36:16
You do something stupid, like so let it fly like you're too talented for Yeah, Andre Baker and the Giants like Rob.
00:36:26
People know that's not like so if you're not an elite player and you wanna have, you know, a long enough n b a career to get a pension and stuff like you can't do, you can't do that.
00:36:38
You can't do that stuff and you think with yeah thing with me is just like I was talking to my buddies.
00:36:44
But I said You don't see any Lakers player doing because LeBron Alex Caruso.
00:36:48
He wanted to go to his own sister's wedding, and LeBron was like, Yeah, we're not what? We're not doing that type.
00:36:54
That's his sister's wedding.
00:36:55
You know what I mean? It's just like and I'm not telling, you know, bang on James Harden a bang on what's really just like you don't see other players doing that like that.
00:37:03
They're not doing that right.
00:37:05
And then also, you gotta kind of think about your team, Like doing like, Oh, yeah.
00:37:11
Like what if you got it and you got Yeah, right.
00:37:14
You only got one other person on the team infected.
00:37:16
But what is that? One of the persons James Harden.
00:37:18
Yeah.
00:37:19
Now you're now one of your Siri's.
00:37:22
Yeah, And they need house, right? Yeah, like he's a key player.
00:37:26
Like he expected there.
00:37:28
And now they're in trouble.
00:37:29
That Siri's now, so, yeah.
00:37:31
I mean, like, you just get me smarter.
00:37:34
Obviously thought he had a good loophole, which, because he was available, you know, I see where he's coming from, but yeah, I mean, you just gotta be smarter than that.
00:37:47
And and poor girl four girl, because I just I mean, I just like because she's going to get, like, a lot of that, like the back, and I don't know who she is.
00:37:56
I hope we don't even find out just for her own, you know? Well being.
00:37:59
But like, was it worth like now, looking at this now, maybe she thought it was I mean now, is it really worth it now? Because it's like, now, I don't know what's gonna happen to it.
00:38:10
But you were knocking kind of assume, like, because that is just bad for Disney.
00:38:15
Like that doesn't look good.
00:38:16
And it's just, you know, they did all this to get them in here safely.
00:38:20
Then you do that.
00:38:21
I know. They tell them this everyday. Don't do that.
00:38:23
Like you can't do that, right? Yeah.
00:38:26
Yeah.
00:38:27
Well, hopefully her name never comes out, but yeah, I mean, both, especially She was.
00:38:36
Would you like a nurse or just like the testing? Yeah, she was Ah, Tester.
00:38:41
Yeah, So I mean, maybe he wanted to get tested late night. Maybe he was confident.
00:38:46
Who knows who knows what.
00:38:47
He was wrong with him.
00:38:48
Who knows? Yeah.
00:38:51
So, um, moving on to more, I guess.
00:38:55
Important topic How do you like you? Look at a narrow.
00:39:07
He played very well this year about the Rosen guys like that.
00:39:10
How do you think this? Um, well, the big players contractors, You know, I expect the salary cap to take a dip.
00:39:15
And, you know, our teams even.
00:39:16
You know, Anthony Davis afraid of summer.
00:39:18
You know, he's I'm gonna wanna know a truckload of cash.
00:39:21
How do you think that affect their contracts? Yeah, I mean, we'll have to see what happens.
00:39:26
Um, when they do, you know, negotiate this stuff out of the C B A, um, How you know this salary, cap it.
00:39:35
What will happen? Like I don't I would doubt, you know, it's one giant one year drop, but, you know, you'll probably see a drop that spread out over the next 4 to 5 years.
00:39:47
Um, like guys like Anthony Davis like it.
00:39:50
Anthony Davis wanted opt out and get a contract somewhere.
00:39:54
Um, he'll probably get what he was supposed to get.
00:39:56
Um, but you know, those lower level free agents you know, those fringe roster guys or even your calories, or like, a little bit older? Um, you might have to feel like a lot of them settle for vet minimums or something a little higher than that on one year deals, you'll see.
00:40:14
Like the whatever you know, top end players come into this free agency.
00:40:18
If any end up doing, um, you know, they'll get their long term deals.
00:40:23
Uh, those mid fringe guys middle of Roger guys, I don't see teams really thrown out cash.
00:40:34
Uh, you know, they could redo the C b A.
00:40:39
And you realize that.
00:40:41
Hey, you know, it's not gonna be that big of a drop.
00:40:44
Um or, you know, still gonna be projected to go up in the coming years.
00:40:50
Um, and you could see some more money thrown around, but you're not gonna see, like, a 2016 scenario this year.
00:40:57
Um, especially because next year's class is gonna be a lot better.
00:41:03
I feel bad for guys like Jason Tatum, cause I know before when the bubble will I want to do it early because, you know, most young player, he's gonna be a silk for a long time.
00:41:14
But guys, um and you know, well, yeah, it's definitely could for the player on there and like, there was no shot of that ever happening.
00:41:35
Gotta get their extensions early.
00:41:37
Obviously, it's extenuating cir***stances.
00:41:39
But then, like you opened up the Pandora's box of you know, guys, next year who? One extensions.
00:41:46
Alright, I'm doing for my extension.
00:41:48
I want to get it early before I play this season.
00:41:50
Yeah, for Jayson Tatum last year, like, now, let me get it this year.
00:41:54
So there's 0% chance like that was gonna happen.
00:41:57
Um, but yeah, I mean, it's risky.
00:42:00
Thankfully, so far, none of those extent you guys have gotten hurt.
00:42:04
All right, but yeah.
00:42:07
I mean, I do feel bad for the stuff.
00:42:08
You guys.
00:42:09
Hey, I have to say I took three months off playing basketball.
00:42:13
I have to go pretty much turn trying to make a playoff push here.
00:42:18
Like so you really like your theory on Fox in the King's? Like they show up there, right? We have to push to make the playoffs.
00:42:25
I'm doing for upset and put basketball in four months, right? You know, the odds are someone's gonna get hurt.
00:42:33
And he was playing her to hear her ankle injury or something like that. Yeah.
00:42:37
Yeah.
00:42:38
I do feel bad for those guys, thankfully, all in May so far, made out healthy.
00:42:43
Hopefully, Tatum makes that healthy.
00:42:46
They can get their extensions next year and, you know, get everything they were.
00:42:51
Let's get because also, I feel bad for guys like bam out of by You know, this was his breakout season.
00:42:56
He really took a gigantic leap forward.
00:42:59
You know, if I'm him, I want to get that money now because he's also eligible next summer as well.
00:43:04
So I mean, we'll see.
00:43:05
I mean, I think all those guys will get their money.
00:43:07
I just want to see, you know what is that? What does that look like? What is that number? Look like? It will be the same when they get a little less.
00:43:13
You know who knows? E think it'll be close? Um, it's gonna say like that's gonna affect the friend.
00:43:19
You guys in the middle of roster guys more than anything, the stars, they're still gonna get their money, right? That'll never change.
00:43:27
So you're a big boyfriend, people, your instagram, your your everywhere.
00:43:30
You're at lbl stuff.
00:43:32
You're at Yankees games, Knicks game.
00:43:36
You're you're just all over the place.
00:43:37
And you like you said earlier.
00:43:38
You alright? Next fan.
00:43:40
I'm big on conspiracy theories.
00:43:42
I personally think that the n b A lottery is Rick is rigged.
00:43:45
You don't have to answer that if you don't want to.
00:43:46
But I think I think it's rigged.
00:43:48
It has to be rigged.
00:43:50
Like it just it just has to be written in the Knicks.
00:43:53
You know, you all have been moved up in the lottery since y'all drafted Patrick Ewing.
00:43:58
You know, even those first round picks they traded, they won the lottery, didn't move up.
00:44:02
Uh, I don't know if it's fixed.
00:44:05
We're cursed.
00:44:06
Like whatever it may be, Um, it just hasn't worked out in the next favor.
00:44:11
Yeah.
00:44:13
I mean, what I think is hopefully this has happened.
00:44:16
So I think that I think that the, you know, the wars they had the number two overall pick.
00:44:21
I think that the war is gonna try to use that picks to get a player.
00:44:24
Maybe your work, hopefully enough.
00:44:26
They have a They're They're weird over there.
00:44:28
They have a bunch of loopholes.
00:44:29
They figured out to get a bunch of cash.
00:44:31
But maybe, you know, you could swap picks. Maybe.
00:44:35
I think that the the Warriors might try to draft any of Egypt from Israel.
00:44:39
Maybe you could move about to get lit.
00:44:41
Mellow? Yeah.
00:44:42
I mean, I think the war is probably try to use that the trade for a player like because, you know, what is a James Wiseman like really do for warriors next year? Like trying to win a championship? I'm not gonna Him, but like rookies, Not what they need.
00:44:58
Yeah, Yeah, I think it's almost probably guarantee they trade that big.
00:45:03
What do they get for it? Who knows? Like like what? Could who's even on the market? Like for a trade like and B you could be.
00:45:15
And him and him and Andrew him, Andrew Wiggins make exactly the same Monday dollar for dollar because you give Wiggins a pit Wiggins the pick and I don't know something and be, You know, he's a top 10 player in the NBA.
00:45:26
So you're giving up a lot to get him, But he would be an option.
00:45:29
You have to do something.
00:45:31
Uh, no offense Any of those guys there? They just They just don't said Yeah.
00:45:37
Yeah, I guess I could see that.
00:45:38
Maybe they try to go make a move for John.
00:45:40
It's you know that.
00:45:42
See, that's what I want to happen.
00:45:44
I want that to happen so bad.
00:45:46
But I've been I've been talking about this for over a year now, so I think that Young could he could be a warrior.
00:45:51
Have you Have you seen that $250 million credit line that the Warriors opened up? Have you heard about that? So, you know Joe Lakers? He's one of the best, you know, financially responsible GM, you know, in the in the NBA.
00:46:05
So you know the warriors, they don't have a local TV deal.
00:46:08
They're one the few MBA teams that don't have one.
00:46:11
So and there's so much, you know, faith that the war is going to be good again.
00:46:16
He opened up a $250 million credit line, Thio that goes with their camp basically.
00:46:22
So if they ever got into a situation, we need money right now.
00:46:25
Right now, they can use, um, that money.
00:46:30
You know, they're the only team.
00:46:31
I think so far we're all in any the only playoff team for sure.
00:46:35
That can do like the rockets can't do it that he can't do that.
00:46:38
Nuggets Jazz, etcetera.
00:46:39
So he found a way thio tap into, you know, 250 million more dollars.
00:46:45
So, essentially, if they need some cash and they also have a $17.
00:46:48
8 million trade exception do the e g, they can sign another free agent.
00:46:56
Yeah.
00:46:57
I mean, like, I don't buy.
00:46:58
John is going anywhere until I actually see it, but yeah, I mean, that could be built.
00:47:03
The MPs in view, fits for what they dio.
00:47:09
Kids grow up, though.
00:47:10
The same time.
00:47:12
Hey, has to be an adult, though.
00:47:13
He has to grow up because they are a championship, because he has to grow up.
00:47:18
I mean, that cultural probably do that. Yeah.
00:47:22
Um, yeah.
00:47:23
The sixties air in a weird spot right now.
00:47:26
Um, like, do you blow it up to you higher, coach? Try to figure out Wow.
00:47:32
Like I think those guys, they're all good players, I think by a player.
00:47:36
I think someone is a good player.
00:47:37
I think he's a good player, but they never your assembly.
00:47:43
That team, like those guys don't really fit.
00:47:45
Yeah.
00:47:47
I mean, the issue with them is.
00:47:48
First of all, they signed every good power forward and therefore best players.
00:47:52
Air power forward and center.
00:47:53
Ben Simmons is a point forward. Tobias.
00:47:56
Here's a power for Horford and be then I think the other biggest issue with them was coaching, but they've been kind of running that franchise like a college program.
00:48:04
You know, it's every year.
00:48:05
They have a new piece.
00:48:06
It was JJ Red****.
00:48:07
Then it was Jimmy Butler and I was out horses, like Get your group of guys, stick with them and develop them.
00:48:14
Then you have your best perimeter player.
00:48:17
He refuses to shoot threes.
00:48:18
I only can he not shoot three.
00:48:20
He just won't shoot them like I mean their problem.
00:48:23
And you see, kind of with the Bucks to Is that like all their guys, they're all like downhill? Yeah, like the playoffs come around, space gets tighter, you're playing better.
00:48:35
Defense is like you're in a structure.
00:48:38
That's why I like the box.
00:48:39
Not really having any elite shooters like that's why they lost their serious the Heat shot like he were a better shooting team and the Bucks really couldn't get their Opens going, so yeah, I mean, the sixes need to make some trades.
00:48:56
Yeah.
00:48:58
Who were the to pick with the Sixers Would fit Beth.
00:49:02
Like, I mean, I think the mellow actually would probably be.
00:49:05
Yeah, yeah.
00:49:10
Um, you know, that could work.
00:49:13
Um, yeah.
00:49:17
I think that the Timberwolves might get Edward.
00:49:20
I think. I think that's what they might do.
00:49:22
I could see that. I see that 52.
00:49:26
I think they should take the mellow, I think.
00:49:28
Lemelle Russell, Um I think that fits you playing pretty much Botha's.
00:49:35
Yeah.
00:49:36
Change ones and twos.
00:49:37
Um, kind of get into position lists thing there.
00:49:42
Um e think the n b A.
00:49:44
Because you're starting to see it in college, to the teams, they're starting to get more creative with the line of either horns.
00:49:49
There's all year.
00:49:50
They start three point guard for three combo guards all at the same time.
00:49:55
So you all of a sudden everything to get a rebound.
00:49:56
You could just run, right? Like a work trip.
00:50:00
Hey, then, you know about the grand was three this year.
00:50:05
Kerry was Terry.
00:50:07
Yeah, uh, but yeah, I mean, it worked for them.
00:50:12
I think you know, it's kind of with the Knicks.
00:50:16
Can I be looking due to were, like, You know, you're playing.
00:50:19
Kevin knocks at four with around five.
00:50:23
R j is kind of three.
00:50:25
So you're kind of playing almost three guards? Yeah.
00:50:29
Um, there.
00:50:31
But yeah, basketball is changing.
00:50:35
Uh, why, you know, this was actually the J League program is perfect for kind of those big spoke bigs.
00:50:43
That what kind of fading out of the MBA? Don't go away.
00:50:48
Stay year in college, like go at least get NBA coaching.
00:50:51
You are here, you know, develop your skills.
00:50:54
Says you could last longer the MBA.
00:50:57
So what do you think? What's wrong with your Knicks? Okay, we know Dolan's an issue.
00:51:01
We we we know that we've everyone knows that.
00:51:03
But, Mr Robinson, I love Mr Robert.
00:51:05
They don't even playing more than 25 minutes a game.
00:51:08
Um, Knox took a step back then.
00:51:11
The Smith trade kind of bit, Um, not a big fan of R.
00:51:15
J Barry when he played a good season.
00:51:17
I don't not a big fan of his, I guess.
00:51:20
What? Like what's wrong with him, E I mean, I think like they have good players on that roster.
00:51:28
Like, I don't think any of these guys unnecessarily you guys that shouldn't be playing in the n b A.
00:51:34
Um, but what? You know, obviously part of its that they keep going with the let's blow it up and try to get a start here.
00:51:47
And that's failed twice.
00:51:48
Um, they didn't get LeBron didn't get Katie.
00:51:52
I think they're getting damaged.
00:51:55
Which maybe they dio, but it's definitely part of it.
00:52:00
Um, you know, I think previous staff haven't done a good job developing players there.
00:52:06
Um, that's why you know, be on Rose getting that job.
00:52:10
Well, some people were skeptical, like they put together a great staff there so far.
00:52:15
Um, so you know, I think things will trend up for them.
00:52:20
Um, they've hired a lot of, uh, you know, player development guys, uh, you know, they have Johnny Bryant there.
00:52:27
Um, they're putting, you know, the effort into the, um bringing them better skills, training staff and things like that s, I think, you know that will start pushing things in the right direction.
00:52:41
Uh, no, I think it's also something that's just bad luck.
00:52:44
And like you end up Steph curry goes to pick before you.
00:52:49
Yeah.
00:52:50
No, You drop in the lottery.
00:52:51
You miss this guy.
00:52:52
No portion of your stairs.
00:52:53
A C L um you know, Roy Hibbert blocks Melo shot.
00:53:04
Now you lose the basis is the number two seed with number? Yeah, number two seed that year.
00:53:09
So yeah, I think a lot of this is also just bad luck.
00:53:15
Why are they cursed at? Who knows? It's been a rough.
00:53:20
It's been a rough 32 years as the next man.
00:53:22
Uh, but, you know, that's also, like, probably the other tough thing about being an agent.
00:53:28
Now, is that you kind of get a lot like those petty? Yeah, I always go like, Yeah, I hate the Miami Heat.
00:53:34
Hated the Boston Celtics, but like, I can't anymore s like that part kind of sucks, but yeah, hopefully get it together, because, I mean, New York's basketball city Manly E.
00:53:48
When we missed out on the summer, because all this summer outdoor stuff got canceled because the virus, but like knicks win a championship here like whoever does that's gonna be king.
00:53:58
Yeah, whether it's Sean us.
00:53:59
Whether that's no lo mellow, if they ended up somehow getting him, like, if it's, you know, our great barrier.
00:54:05
Like you're gonna be a king.
00:54:07
You'll be bigger than Derrick.
00:54:08
You'll be bigger than, um and I'm like, Yeah, who Who is somebody? You think like the next target? I think Devon vessel from Florida State would be a nice if they could get.
00:54:18
I mean, for the cir***stances that they're in, I think Kevin Brazil would be a good addition.
00:54:22
I think he fits with typical likes to do his defense first, and then Brazil fits that mold.
00:54:28
I agree with that one because I am a far state Fair s Oh, I'd love to see him playing here now.
00:54:34
Uh, but I think it also fits from personal standpoint.
00:54:38
Um, you know, he's definitely one, um, that I like.
00:54:43
I would like Patrick Williams to very good. I like that.
00:54:48
Williams, depending.
00:54:50
You know, you gotta figure out where you're playing.
00:54:53
Um, you know, they also have that other first round pick.
00:54:57
You know, maybe the guy like Carol Lewis.
00:54:59
Yeah.
00:55:01
You know, you could put him in a point garden.
00:55:02
You know, if you keep Frank, he's really good.
00:55:05
Maybe you play Frank off the ball.
00:55:07
Um, you know, there's a couple of guys that I think would fit for them.
00:55:11
Obviously, like Melo fit.
00:55:12
But that's probably out of question.
00:55:14
Um, maybe a coral.
00:55:16
Uh, I guess you that, um Who's the UC guy? Yoga came from.
00:55:27
USC came from USC.
00:55:31
Okay.
00:55:32
Oh, Congo.
00:55:34
Yeah, I think he could fit to, like, obviously you're not getting him.
00:55:38
You're not getting him, but, um, he's probably gone before.
00:55:44
Yeah, they get big like, but I think he's just like they need.
00:55:49
They need some defenders and you guys who can shoot the basketball.
00:55:52
She has a big problem last year.
00:55:54
Like R.
00:55:56
J. Barrett is not a top and shooter yet.
00:55:58
Uh, Kevin Knox is inconsistent.
00:56:01
Um, they don't really have a lot of shooters.
00:56:05
And that doesn't work in faith. MBA.
00:56:09
All right.
00:56:11
That's why I think the cell would be good.
00:56:13
Because, like, you know, you're not landing in LeBron James in this draft like there's no, probably, you know, maybe one of these guys turned into a Donovan Mitchell.
00:56:22
They're like, Hey, this guy's good under the radar, though, it turns out to be a stud.
00:56:28
Yeah, Maybe that happens um, but yeah.
00:56:32
I mean, you have to sell.
00:56:33
You have two first round picks next year.
00:56:34
You got a ton of cap space.
00:56:39
You know, a lot of it's just gonna come down toe the coaching e Think they good coaching hire? Um, I also thought some of the coaching hires we get to didn't work out.
00:56:50
But maybe I'm right on this one.
00:56:52
Um, but yeah.
00:56:54
I mean, they just gotta get the garden back, man.
00:56:57
Um, because even when they're bad, like the place cells out, it's still fun to be at.
00:57:02
But just giving someone basketball, you know for sure? Sure.
00:57:09
Um, so I want to get the woman is a serious topic.
00:57:11
So I see you on social media a lot you're always talking about, You know, you're encouraging people to vote on how important it is to vote.
00:57:17
You know, you're also talking about, you know, you see the racial inequality that's going on in the streets, you know, going on for generations, you know? So talk about why are you, like, Why are you so active? You know why I like what? What makes you You know you don't have to do that you know, a lot of people don't they kind of shy away from it.
00:57:31
That's not, you know, some people is not the thing, but that's your thing.
00:57:34
So why do you Why are you so socially active about it? I mean, when it comes to voting and stuff e think it's pretty obvious why, um way get out of the situation we're in.
00:57:46
Uh, I didn't want him in 2016.
00:57:51
Um, it would be bad.
00:57:53
Did I think it would turn out this bed? No.
00:57:57
Um, but, you know, it's fairly obviously, like we need to change their, um and also, like, you know, thes young kids that, you know, I'm going out there including, like, they're the next ones.
00:58:08
We're gonna be out there, you know, according shaping.
00:58:11
You know how the world's for us.
00:58:13
You know, when we're old S o.
00:58:15
I think it's important.
00:58:16
Thio show these young kids that, like, it's important to get involved in voting.
00:58:22
Um, in, you know? Yeah, like, politics isn't for everyone.
00:58:25
Um, and you know, you have those people who complain about politics, get into sports, but like, this was your life, Like everything in the real world.
00:58:35
like revolves around what goes on in D.
00:58:38
C.
00:58:39
So, um, you know, it's important.
00:58:41
Um, we gotta get this guy out.
00:58:44
Um, like, it's 190,000 people are dead like and he doesn't seem to care.
00:58:50
So, you know, every day.
00:58:53
And, you know, maybe we haven't had a normal summer.
00:58:57
Maybe you have to worry about football being played if, like, he wasn't there.
00:59:02
Um and obviously this, you know, a laundry list of things that were pointing him out for, but yeah, he's just he's not a good person.
00:59:11
Uh, and he doesn't like he just doesn't care like it's him.
00:59:17
Yeah, Yeah, that's not what it's supposed to be about.
00:59:25
And I mean, I also like the waste in the quality stuff, like that stuff I've always I felt strongly about, but I think even more so now you know, being in this position like going in recruiting, you know, 16 17 year old African American kids, you know, how could I in good faith, go and recruit you an extra family, like trust you? If I'm not going to put myself on the line and, you know, stand under you and, you know, have your back because, like, yeah, like, things need to change.
00:59:55
Like African Americans.
00:59:57
Like they can't change it like white people in the majority.
01:00:00
Like we have toe be the ones to change.
01:00:03
Like we're the ones doing messed up stuff.
01:00:06
Uh, like, yeah, like you guys wanted to change.
01:00:10
What? We know that.
01:00:11
But you can't change that on your own.
01:00:13
Like where the majority.
01:00:17
We gotta keep our people in check.
01:00:19
Um, like, yeah, like, you know, call out your racist friend, you know, making racist jokes like that's like, it's not funny, like right.
01:00:27
E might be funny when you were like, you know, 14 years old, but like, it's not like like, it's everything that has happened with best monster **** mess up.
01:00:39
And, you know, like I don't want my kids to have toe grow up in a world where you know, they turn on TV And oh, you know, some guy got shot by the cops and he was unarmed.
01:00:51
Or, you know, some guy got chased down the street and two white guy shot him because he was black, like I don't wanna have to answer those questions like they shouldn't have toe grow up in a world where you know they have to worry about that like it's like the same stuff that happened when our parents were our age.
01:01:13
Like nothing seemed to change or just happens differently, like it's How long, How long do you want to keep living in a world where you know certain people have to worry about? You know, walking outside the house like like I never had to deal with that growing up? Um, you know, I never had to be scared of the cops.
01:01:35
Nobody ever looked at me differently.
01:01:37
It's like, Why should why should someone else have to have that fear like it's just a just a nice issue, you know, we're not being treated the same as everybody else. Like I said, we're getting in.
01:01:50
My biggest issue with it is like they're like, Well, he was.
01:01:53
He had a criminal background before he, But you just so listen to the cops.
01:01:57
You won't be shot.
01:01:58
Well, turning away from the cop doesn't equal death one, and then also your criminal record.
01:02:03
What you've done before that particular moment before that interaction that is completely irrelevant has nothing nothing to do what just transpired and like Like, you're not supposed to Just shooting the guilty person either.
01:02:17
Like, yeah, right.
01:02:21
And like, Yeah, like, maybe like Jacob Blake was no resisting arrest and wrestling with the cause.
01:02:26
But, like, also, there was four of you. There was one a hit.
01:02:29
Yeah, actually, bouncers throw three people out of a bar by themselves.
01:02:37
She tells me, like, four cops like you can't do that.
01:02:39
Maybe you're Maybe you should go becoming, like a crossing guard or something like and my thing with that situation was, they had so much time to get him to the ground.
01:02:49
He walked around the whole length of the car like he did, like, basically, like, he basically covered the entire car.
01:02:56
You have so much time to get this man to the ground or do whatever you have to do before you shot him seven times, right? Because you can't do your job.
01:03:05
Well, doesn't give you the right to shoot some.
01:03:07
Yeah, well, that's what he didn't depend, I guess.
01:03:10
Yeah, maybe he did do some bad things in the past, but that's why we have Sure.
01:03:14
So when you go to trial, that's why we have a justice system like, Yeah.
01:03:19
Like the cops? Yeah, he pointed a gun at him.
01:03:22
You know what a different story, but that's not what happened.
01:03:26
Like, so, yeah.
01:03:28
I mean, a lot of stuff gotta change.
01:03:29
Um, hopefully it does.
01:03:31
Hopefully we, you know, make some progress, but yes.
01:03:36
Yeah, it just makes you sick to turn on the TV and see someone else.
01:03:40
You go on Twitter, you know, you see another person unarmed getting shot, you know, like like like What the hell are we doing, man? Like you didn't mean If yeah, I mean, you know, this stuff has been going on for generations.
01:03:58
Just that now, you know, we have cameras and cell phones and we can record and see everything.
01:04:02
And now you know, it's being spread across like I mean, like I said, Now, you can't turn on that.
01:04:06
You can't click on Twitter without seeing that, and it's just that it's like it's like every other day, something on something is going on like that.
01:04:12
Like, what are we missing? Like the seventies? Because Yeah.
01:04:15
What? Right, right.
01:04:17
But I also like what do we still missing that, like you know.
01:04:21
You see, like what isn't getting called Like, what's happening when you know there's not a credit people with their cell phones up because, like, this is happening with you're seeing all this stuff? Is someone recorded on the cell phone? It's like when I was 18.
01:04:33
When people are around.
01:04:35
Yeah, like, that's probably the scariest thing.
01:04:39
Then, you know, the cops are doing it and nothing.
01:04:41
Nothing happens when they get paid leave.
01:04:43
And they get to come back to work with 67 months and nothing, you know, they just move on, right? Like, not even like, yeah, like, there's definitely times where cops justified.
01:04:53
I didn't have to shoot someone, Um, like nothing against cops like, Yeah, there are good cops, obviously.
01:05:00
Like I have friends.
01:05:01
They're cops.
01:05:02
Like they're good people.
01:05:04
But if people that you work with are doing this, are you still good? If you don't stand up? Yeah, you know, point.
01:05:15
Hey, like, this is wrong.
01:05:17
Like, we shouldn't be doing this.
01:05:18
Like if you're gonna be silent in it.
01:05:21
You can't complain about you know, people judging and try and hold you accountable.
01:05:26
Like that's not how it works.
01:05:29
I mean even Chris Rock.
01:05:30
He said, Make a joke about He said, They're copies in the job where you can have a few bad apples, you know, like imagine if you said that about the Pilo.
01:05:37
Most of our pilots like the land, but we have a few bad apples that don't.
01:05:40
Well, what happens when the few that don't people get killed? Same thing happened with when you have a few bad apples.
01:05:49
It's not like you're a like, you know, a teacher that you're just a bad teacher.
01:05:53
And, you know, your students are gonna fail like you're talking about life and death here.
01:05:58
Like there's no bringing someone back from being dead.
01:06:01
There's no middle ground once you're dead.
01:06:03
Yeah, there's no middle ground like is all right? Well, you messed up, we'll just fire you and everything will be okay.
01:06:09
Like no, like their debt.
01:06:12
Like your family.
01:06:14
That's going apart forever.
01:06:17
Yeah, it's not.
01:06:18
It's not like you were bad at your stock trading job.
01:06:21
You want the company a couple million bucks.
01:06:23
All right, we'll just fire you, replace you like we'll make that couple million bucks back.
01:06:28
It's something you can't have.
01:06:30

01:06:37
Join probably did, like, have that power ship.
01:06:40
