Do you think would in retrospect Why was there so much talk about our hard work? It was gonna, be it almost seems, like you guess, had a built in excuse before the season on tuna causes. To win imply now. His horn Firstly, when teams load up to beat, you are so did you go into the season? Do you think, as a team? Looking back now like a man Much of this MA am, It is natural that you mean when you went to championship from me. I may I got for me, the team in.

Will you do differently than in can I do over the summer have any effect on any hang heritage. No he's not clamber chapters. So he knows that you don't have to say it and I did play a little ball in the back of my neck. I said a corner, you pay talked about it, how it posted of Danny Abrams at time here, but I got shot down quick, quick The biggest in this change you guys is that this whole Silicon Valley Investment, that's become like Father Senor in his businessman a nerve. It's an in fact, while both the narrative, sometimes our facts can like our life. I know,
What boy than five package together and whenever they talked about that stuff earlier there was there. You never told me, you never steered me the railway it's about cover and he was Irma Basque, more visible. Password is I didn't play born about he's, not lambaste? Well, we can't do that. Did you get more opportunities after the fires or whether there are further all alone we want? I came out here thousand people in Congo. And they can receive large, you said to me, though, what Europe, Suddenly, the lack of funding would be like the most Oh yeah, I dont want damage our now embarrassed at your nose in Attica either. You know. U way barrier now, where were you mean this year?

Twenty minutes at like now, you got Debbie Yoshitomo forget, as I damn I'm just trying to relieve, were now was right to enjoy this most were fired at issue. Here s was about it's like this decade has become. I was just talking about this as someone who pack ass with the players, the distance between the players in the fan is Nazism, the Malaysian go right to the fair. Oh, you can you get married man. There's no middle manner, which we have discussed then also like this. It's a whole generation of the players, using whatever their sour in their prey form and other connections to now create these little many businesses, which I get started with Jordan. They went through with Kobe in the blue, and now it's like
your generation Housing army, deep into the weather. You gotta have your business first before you have really have you been here. You know like you can't you competently, expectant, expecting a grow? Your brandishing dishevelled ask awkward you're a hoop furs wrapped in a hotel. You spent like what before really started, and it is always very well you for the first seven years your career than us, alas, four together before the two that we focused on building this enterprise. Family off once we made it to the once. I've made it to the finals and we made it to the finals of the team is like and we want game three. I'm going back home. We lost game for going back home, I'm like all right now. This is kind of real. You know I'm saying like we can kind of leverage this to can a bill. We want a bill, but I had to first yeah nothin.
I come now to the leading and about my brand thinking about anything which is planned, bore how much of now it's always been two years gone, gone state was, because of this business stuff, you dear now, none of it every time he didn't see any common everyday surrounds, today evolves around the gay yeah nonsense? Obviously I got other dreams and goes, and I think about stuff other in basketball. But we talk about this all the time like It wouldn't happen? If I remember a basketball yeah, I know what I'm I know who I am and what I am you don't say. I'm true to this, I'm true to the game, because that's what just what I do I was for in a play, the game in answer, and I'm not gonna act like I'm just other guy and forget about me, the highest asian being or tv for peace.
My game, I'm not going to ignore that they say you know. Just you know, I'm always bore, be creative and be integrated and create the without the game noticed of what it's not like, if I bring him an opportunity, I'll bring him a deal, I want to have a conversation about a show that we saw the something- and he says to me not on focus on basketball. On the side like I can stop him. Now that we get a focus now when they went we're, not partners in that way. Right because everything starts a basketball than every opportunity from then on comes that there's a scene in feed the Black and Jaycees movie, where his manager, the time, comes, and he's got like a note book of all these things. You want to talk to him about and you see he's jays in the studio like in his own, like goes to the engineer, to turn amused doubts, don't wanna go through and J. Looking at me like woody noise, I turn a music now talk about work and he was like you can turn a music down. Turn a music down is not talk about, there's nothing without the music. That's our say.
Entirely soon is that I don't even bring thing up when I know he's in that, though I don't even engage him but I know when the time is right and we have a lot going on too. So it really is about juggling. When you know I can have the the the spots to bring it up and really focus on our business cuz. I want him in then everything. How do you decide which projects likely is there? A limit of of things you want to get involved is a family the past, like the danger, sometimes is when allows us and thrown at you. You must want to do everything you say shit do this exact soon they is now gonna, be unaware carpet. I wanted to commercials. I. I want to be popular. I don't want to be famous, you know, I'm saying we doing stuff, that's like include us new or tell you my invest intact, but does not really a commitment in Austria,
commitment, where gotta do five or six hours on its own, a video shoe or set or re stuff like that, which is becoming just a coup staff and I'm Tellin ya rich. I really want to do that we'll call lab and talk about it in Vince me that I should do it, you know I mean it's like stuff like we, we all. We both agree. You don't say week eleven a lot of stuff. It's not like he's telling me to do something while I'm telling him to do anything. We just come together on a lot of stuff and it's like He know my vision. He knows my vision is as a Basque. Applause as a man. What is your vision? I just want to grow the game, basketball one I wanted. This far more basketball blurs owner. Just grow the game. You know I mean I just love to play ball until basketball stories I want to, and I also make a lot of money from playing balls. Don't want to come to take care of that. You know side of it as well and you don't

Amelia, always on my phone, always lay my phone always late with Xbox and always interested in no stuff they came out and how Van Sir humanity in damages. Canada was who came here. We gotta Ferguson, people in I just started more where'd you soon enough stuff in we started talking through higher How can you tell the difference between somebody that is legitimate business possibility versus somebody that just one and have a I remain exempt enemy giddy in one? Second, what's with the sign, I did it
from the email they write me. I can help from the phone call I can tell from meeting them. I really can't. I think that might be one of my best skills. I don't know. I have many other like it true on paper scales, but I can read. People really well and I can read situations while we we built something that to answer your question before about like when is it too much? It's probably there, but we're at the point now where I think we've lined up an incredible portfolio of of projects were developing on the content side of whether it's a tv show for Apple's new platform. Orbits is Youtube's net worth
that's a show for Fox, and then we have twenty five thirty companies in investment portfolio and though he doesn't act as a brand embezzler we serve as real in active investors, now serve its oppose mates or a coin. Based on a course. We want to make sure that we can do what we can do from a business them without move it and then I'll be see. His foundation is not just something that, like we check the box with like hears rich passport player, less donate money- I mean that's his number one passion. He told me that from day one, so I spent a good deal of my time on that were building a stand alone facility and indeed see we partner, would luring jobs and were housing. The college Shack Programme, which is her programme and her curriculum that puts kids on a course to college in a neighborhood that they normally wouldn't have that opportunity and thus the neighbour coming up, and so we really are building a silly.

While there is a focus on athletics in basketball within the centre, so Brad their point not now we have to execute and all these things superpower in them over the playoffs So I'm going to u shut down Will you said airborne us out, like before: Roundworm open and shut down or for a long time now, but you do like when we did the pack asked after the final. As you said, you had a point where you basically cleared everywhere. Now a ban on state off your phone as a ban on
since then, but, like I won't schedule another thing always I saw that. Oh no, yes at some point, you flip the switch in the title. Amid we have really been doin em. Don't I wish to see before he speaks a panels in Cairo Miserliness stuff, but like commercials and like the type of serve Leah, just I've been on that really the whole year. My whole thing is like now: I just want to get into the gym and get better and just really play the game. You know I'm saying in like I don't really enjoyed stuff anymore. You really Ok, but I know, as you know, is a part of it, but around his tireless like no is butter. We got to kick into real seasons, Would you add this year? I have my own personal answer for this, but I wanna suis Owen, who your personal aquifers, I think you see how I say whatever, however, phrase this really mad.
Because a magazine you trying harder and defence? I think I think you realize rim protection work One way that you could go up one little tiny level. This season we protect. Exactly what I had told you, you man, you gotta. Let me just say that I go well, as maybe a small boy, five slash, my generosity around the removal of a more defensively, Monseigneur used to be mother. Was while those who around Garden Dolen draw pass me and I made a mother You were leading the league blacks, like forty games into the season, which is not something you ve come close to doing before that I could be their statistical look or could be lying with changing it You play of milk.
I test you were. You were a little more actual reminded me of Texas little bit when you like they're, only read Protectorate and you just kind I had to do. It You know I was really excited about agro, Deepness, aware, satellite August or with the best of luck and scorn of our again we'll get a good shot at whenever our yeah but my thing was: I just wondered our locked down on differs Aversa weaken play house money on their yes and that's what my go was. So we get, therefore stops in a row we came and we up ten points, and we can cover, has a fine on offers of re use s arm like I'm contestant everything at the rabbi. I dont want three times in and game before cause I'm trying to test every tiger game by Clarkson.
Nance Nets and enhance a guide me back, and I was I was so close to block and I shot, but he is a king. Dunker, so I get that and Julius Randle, but I was I was excited because I tried to you know I'm saying, and that got me that made me more confident to try stir in next guy in order, so I like one- as try near the room possess. I think they use sash. Twitter air has made people actually less likely to challenge dogs because they don't want to end up on Twitter, knew about it. Wasn't a black as it is in a bad place because it ever should give it a twitter and I will enjoy it, you think you know don't get rid of it. Just says it's like you, change. Our people play a pivotal was Ganz because they like a loose on Twitter reputed shit tests is a term on the item. May you gotta watch games? If you really want to know the game is about
He also was evil, guys, not China, get embarrassed because they want to be on delays me more Coloma. What we know the basket was about in embarrassed. He knows we One too far with the advance metrics this austerity and the five men lineups like prevails. There come over Europe founded. It erodes the blue sky. On that I, like but I don't I don't like the five main line of than the postman is an absolutely set or its a lavish alive, filled officers difference. I feel, go percentage, lake turnover turnovers alike, rebounds ally in a loud stats. But the truth is It's true, shewn precision effective, feel, though the surgeon or less than a calmer, flawed here, p r is flawed. I, like opponent, three point percentage at the death row. That's the only look events as defence. It's funny
Coach told me over the trees, the three states said turnovers a few upsurge in rebounds it with us. Things he lets us off. When I look, ass, she and at times a logo opponents fill those prisoners rebound and assist. That's what I'll again, not further The funny thing is the basket was great but the best love Ass, Cor's fantastic, so you need it. It really? Would it really? You can learn a whole shitload from it. You can tell me I was like looking at free, throw attempts. You know they, as I was trying to figure out what was gone with Carmelo, whether he was just saying different phases crowd whenever and you go back to. Earlier seasons when he's gone to the rim But you know nine nine out of every three attendance judge or not so lucky man didn't eisele like rashly get universal is like, but that's you can learn pretty easily he's just shoot jump shots, but you got to watch the game to see that and then that I watch the game and it falls out
I think there's no statement nor Carmelo know what I'm saying look up numbers to see if they back up what I'm watching. You look numbers first and there were yeah. I think that's where we get in trouble is people to their lazy? They don't want awash gangs is too long. Too hard was gay or there ouch and games, but half the time when they're watching there looking at the internet. Is actually watcher is about because our voters and again when as is bears a bad place, where like a child is clump conniving appears a local, please do it. I saw your blog boys in fanboys, as one use everything I say and trade are cool, yet a basketball game. How would you right there as well? it was always guys write articles about and you re mad about what I say tonight. You're, probably now. They last may be they like this stuff, the bay. But they're gonna dig one put their money.
Goes into is not about you watch it we have enjoyed again. Does don't worry about me so much as one? I do think the stats don't factor in situations you now. Like if, if somebody has Because you're my flower, smaller, I may just pick a read about a railroad. So he has one till the blow boys out there. Fill us about everything. I say boys, Bob boy what I call him. Maybe you re the headline yet No, but I will towards we. Don't you see, we aim for our view to get you read this stuff why don't we hear one on you? It seems like it, personal cause you. Why would I want it in that happened last summer law not taken impersonal. You did, you did everything they just say the other Diana panel, which I thought was incredible with area with the that not anymore, you said it, that's
you didn't embodied in the rail again it s like every four years ago. Now I really I realise that the love and hate that sugar from media affairs, Why does who watches the game is not real? Yes, and I realize that now videogame characters is ears like W w e as late as like entered. Aim is entertainment business. I I was so naive to the fact that MBA Nba Game was entertainment business, People really really really Jane the game I did so on their side. People do majority down when it seems that Ok, soothing kind of our them. I learned a lot because you used of recover from there. We mean Thou Casey thing. I think that that was like before and after situation, how that and when they were zones, and not a Europe of you just began to gear
before that and then like before and after it s like you, know, youth you feel like Like I can do no wrong and whatever I say is golden when I play for ok, see now. Yes like what a decision by so many people flipped on my ok, I get it. I get it, but I really is still where to me that so maybe still feel awaited his day about the even twenty one months later. Yes, if you left, state this year, New recited, ok, see others, people love you get here. It would just for back. That's why I realized. I love and hate really isn't real. Nasa is like just focus on what I really want to do. Is the mass the game. A basketball ennasin know. Instead of wanting to get up, beloved above a certain people or not one now make anybody else mad or at risk one a gig, be great plan, again
but she was like him to go to stay Wanna championship me. You know you felt what that's like this like an offence play mat that you know I come to the games, we appreciate it, but when it comes to perfecting my craft, they really don't matter my family Is really no matter the house is really about perfect in Ukraine. I saw em like so focused on that it makes me look like you know, I've changed yields Hansel. Why takes too? Because we keep doing this Guess what I mean we have under the regulatory it. We have a good conversation, his ears. My defence. Whenever somebody tell me about it, you are one of the top three or four athletes sport, the many whatever the ranking is throughout these other team sports wicked, because as question here, if you should rank here, I'm not going to do that? You think so. You could have seen three or four. I want you to rephrase that and say
no nobody denies the way phrase. There was chasm amusing as an example. We think I love to safe. We taken TAT is to say the same regularly Goma, the amateur thing on how it is that one or two then say I think, you're the third or they give the fourth I'm happy to do that. One second infringement claim TAT five. That's an each sport right. You're, the only one who has done a purchasers like this, because I few leg, Intensity with athletes is one of the hardest things defiant, especially at the higher they go. Now I could do we feel I was were people to tell us where superstores We really are well better I think there is part of it- is not superstore, but at some point they think with some of these superstores strata, Yoke, Canada, yet aware tangley, you have as a request or a Mamie realise Alot may somewhere, but afterwards Havisham ahead, taco bill. Any ran through me just like you would enormous person and while shit
but I didn't go to ceramic they. I thought I was a new and is everything stomach? I thought I was immune. Everything were now Michael, Jordan, Lebanon. Never about is here because the way people who pursue this section of it all languages immortal Were normal fuck and people who are really good at what we do. But at the end of the day we go to sleep is like everybody else. We really put on our part, This is like everybody else. We take a shit like everybody else. So as my it made me realize that light, I am not anything because we want to championship, I just achieved what I want in my profession. Just like a doctor who threatens you know, I don't even know just like you ever do out on our patina another day, yeah Barack Obama, you achieve something that you didn't you, We thought it also We realise that, like that superstar were to me really isn't a thing you know sand is just

Thank you this third he's got a messenger anti again hasn't nobody's ever made the nobody's ever made. One of the three main themes amiss Emily against you ever history, Basque. First, the first World WAR is no mean a thing now cause you guys were you. Albanian rankings was gained. Nothing really. His pride started presented. Don't care about basketball, Russia, like s y'all, as you fuckin lazy. Solely on that debt, the NBA Vp in almost daily. I later I as important to but is not really important to me. I, like it
I guess, contacts at your end. Sixty eight! Suddenly she If you do when you feel when its anti, if you known as not guarantee you play the whole season, the mapping. They get oilers icebreaker? The reason for that, for that if you know who I was definitely gotta, pull wuerzburger. Ah, look at you. I just understand again, I'm a girl. It still. This one's uncut see rest. Firstly, if Europe wants. You sure you should build. This is the final podcast withdrew coroner have as yet. None of this I love. This is great. No, I'm building it as the oil Loyola. Now I love a man on the moon
Cuba Dost again so Everyone was try and this year, for whatever reason, I still think you guys made like some sort of giants. I bet that will never find out about whatever is I've ever his plan so hard we deserve, which is wonderfully you just want you seller ran. If, if you in are made that over commercial with it I deplore that Wireless Pemberley hard, though, which brought me back to the old days when the Astor game used manner. And there's a little hierarchy that develops and it's kind of a little snapshot of who the best pleasure For the most part, It seemed like the right guys were at their Davis, wasn't out there because the numbers were his team had too many forwards. I think so he end up sitting. He probably blunted up there, but like Embiid was that and I was a joint that I be kind of belongs in the way that was kind of a moment for him right here would be done by big.
Colleagues, I was at the game in the gaming. Anna was Russell, carry you the Brown and who is the lesson in Fiji PJ's who is on the other? mpg had to be out there and that's why Davis of setting a regime have yet there s? No now a clay was other clothes, other staff, James Guys, we in the more the hours. I write your own mother s funny CASE yeah I was like a year away from being ready to give what they needed in their game can see We have in the bar, the somebody had to pay off the bar, and he really totally know what to do and then. Just as its was staff had the ball is appoint. Are you? but actually will play him off the bar at somebody else run the thing had: staff a commoner screens, but Andrews when he saw not scream
both in those ass it understands go out. I was actually follow as watched a basketball game for the first time in forty years. I guarantee that wisely. They should do this in Athens, If, as I was hoping you'd think you'd be a coach and India now I dont good lady of colleagues night. They can't fucking Idiot my point was in stance. I felt like I was watching a real again. It was, Whenever I try and the benches raw standing like, MRS Gill, I think we start game off without energy. I think Doin case he was good. He came into the practice they forms like. We will run a couple says, but will actually play some difference on his staff was really good at motivate nurse and given his energy and came at the time our guard,
play defence, make the right play. It was fine. Man had a good time. I had a good time, so, as I and actual basketball worry you're, my pick up ended obviously no might have a few lay offs and dogs here because we all play together. So we know exactly how to play with each other, but you know we try. You know, maybe try play. We had a good chemistry, and so did you. Then motors atta be one of the only time to play with the brown. I arose, the liberals but Olympics yes, of course, outside your team. Why so did staff. Did he then mother Betty or did you just give you cash? Nobody had a sob. He was a second envelope nowadays, hundreds in error and though I wish apple pay. I wish steps. Will chase searches quickly, she's cool guy. That's always wins but maybe like a stock to earn a silicon valley. We will need to know
but I know I know we just me. It was all for it for the game we had. We had a good time, we did after the third quarter, that the Brown was gonna steal the envy peak, as nobody wanted it from my from suggesting that we can take. It was just sitting there for Brad the Brademagus sailor Brown, that's really good offence away. This is one of the best stretches I've seen from him he's I don't know what happens at the Astor Break, I went from writing off Cleveland completely too. I don't think anymore. That share the conference. I wish my team was out there, but it is not taken I'm so glad fallacy way just hands, get fill his ear away. Toronto had a chance to really gradually love or learn a lot from this play office. I agree I was saying, as somebody out there my enemy of you It has an eleven though Casey Team, the year before axis of body where he had three every piece:
I'm saying that year was like you learn. Everything you needed to do that year. That set you up for the next year sides. Two thousand ten, wherever three Mps uneasy enable we play a team to doesn't anyone who follows? I remember ass now the Lakers year. They want to share with you the second one rule you often far we want since those games ran a beer tv as watch on one of them was dark, appeared a measure on that, comparing the talent rule. Twenty one, that's my point here. Used when he twenty one years old. He is why bring it up everybody's identity and their tea out now.

Sometimes except a year earlier, like Leubronn, and no seven is another example Ross and they beat the pistons. There was well Were they wear this team come from and I do take the scene is set in these fourteen to do that. It can be fully the share, but I don't know Gary events, images good.
