Welcome welcome current they would be here. We've been up and had it for awhile now here today we just got back about an hour and a half ago from little warriors basketball practice. Be out of there were having softball practice. Volleyball practice that they weird it would be really odd. I can tell yeah that is a loose basketball team and you know going over practice gives you just a little peek behind the curtain. Not that were privy to practice they don't want to mediate in dental practices over and that's when players are going through their own personal shoot around routines. That's when we counted staff curry making 86 of a hundred threes from around the arc. We watched him again today he was spectacular we didn't get the final count because that's when we. Started talking to Ian Clark who by the way we have a great one on one with and we're gonna have Ian Clark for you a little bit later on today really coming out of the shell as a player. You know the San Antonio game wasn't good for the league wasn't good for Steve Kirsch rep it was good to the NBA it was good for TV ratings it was good for PR. It's great for in Clark hit a career high 36 and came. Could give you may play great. And it feels like it's unlocked him a little bit it really has so we'll hear from me Clark a little bit later on today Marcus Thompson joins us at 330. Suisse de. Facto warrior practice today. We we did not see Tim Roy deleted CRC Davis who of course it. Produces the on site games Luis Arce Davis did not see Tim Roye. Asking where the hell he was when he towards us today Tim Roy who was not normally am guessing a basketball practice. It is joining us at 430 in Clark 530. And something that we have our fingers crossed for. It's like every show that tried to book dream on does against. Something that we have our fingers crossed for. Is what I think will be one of the more inspiring. Wild tales of human endurance and survival we have ever told and we really hope that we can talent like 6 o'clock with Chris furniture but as it stands right now. It's looking a little shaky. He is flying up from LA today he was supposed to land at 4 o'clock you'll be taking off until 430. How last flights are delayed out of LA acts. So Chris may not get here in time we wanted to have him in studio Chris Byrd each for those of you who do not know. And I'm guessing it's the vast majority of view because Chris Byrd pitches and a name that I'd ever heard of until the one time I went down to see the mavericks. Big wave surfing competition. Chris Byrd H. One mavericks of the year that everyone says is the definitive Europe mavericks when the waves were the biggest key was the champion. He. Is just one of the coolest guys of ever talked to. We befriended each other we've been the lunch together one or two times he say south African. He's from South Africa and he's one of the great water men in the world. He is. He's basically you know the greatest lifeguard a beach could ever have sitting on it. He is one of the finest big wave surfers in the world. Key now. Successfully cross an ocean by himself on a standup paddle board that's amazing and crazy even admit he's seen he did it to raise awareness before a whole bunch charities one of his favorite is the the the cleft palate. Now the smiles there's a smile. That's smile charity he is one of the coolest guys of all time and to talk to them to three or four minutes is to fall in love with him to wanna be that guy. You know he really is the all women want him men want to be him type that dude is crocodile dung big. Company he really as he's he's amazing. And I was really hoping introduce you to him at 6 o'clock tonight you know maybe he gets here on time I just do not know unfortunately this is a note will do it tomorrow as we're going to be at oracle tomorrow. Mean we can maybe get him on the phone for the big in person were hoping to get that maybe that's happened that renders crossed fingers crossed would get into. WBZ right now. So that is the most amount of fun I think I've ever had peeking in on a championship game in a tournament that I didn't watch a lick of right up until I started watching last night. And you know all I can tell you is. This part I mean it's. Feel just a little bit better about America today. And who would have ever thought. Markets stroman. Was a hero American needed. That's because he pitches for the Toronto Blue Jays you know that really worked out perfectly for stroman the guy was working on a no hitter. He obviously had a strict pitch count. They didn't wanna send them back to the blue jays like hey. I know he has made a star yet when we RD gassed them for a 140 pitches during a no hitter the World Baseball Classic. So when he had the big lead. He came out to start an inning he gave up a hit right away and that's the perfect way to exit I even said best thing we could possibly happen stroman gives up a leadoff single. Walks off to a standing no that's exactly what happened someone like you jinxed it. So Jackson but I just it's all the predictions have been predicted that I didn't jinx anything that's an I told you was gonna happen that's good that it happened for him. Brandon Crawford. Makes sweet love to pressure. He had a nice roll that score big runs as you know here's what I came away. Wind from the World Baseball Classic. Every win. Maybe should be celebrated by ceramic eagle being. Placed on a pitcher's announced did you see that eagle statute that they're all heading out that was funny. Baseball with a little emotion makes thin is a good thing. It's a good thing in those guys wanted to win that game you could see it. You could absolutely see it. Com. The thing that I took away and the most is this. Number one. The World Baseball Classic is officially if you listen is officially better if you're listening to it in another language it's a lot like the World Cup. ESPN two had the Spanish language broadcast in if you wanted to watch an English US on MLB network okay. I watched almost all of it on ESPN two and I like Matt the sturgeon. Very very good broadcaster. And I think. But there's just something about ot. It George tadano. Of ESPN. Apparently said you know if you Google. ESPN's Spanish right now the commentary on Twitter is a mixture of funny an incredibly sad. I never understood. I get you loving being American. Or whatever gets you lost jingoistic Lee would I never got is in and what you get standoffish about other languages. I don't speak another language. I love listening to other languages he Tim I think it's just more interest and I love accents. I love foreign languages. And whenever given the chance to just eavesdrop on it for a little while. I do. Lanes and everyone interprets things differently so you're gonna get a completely different why broadcast I did not do what he said yeah right true. Could I I I Kemp friend eighths 30% a bit like I know the words for. Pitching ball and hits in Unita plane you know when he says stroman ice and he's talking about mark to market stroman. I don't understood I just don't understand. Why. A foreign language on your television would make you heavy visceral negative reaction to it especially if the English that you preferred was available. In a button click yeah I don't get it to about I don't get it. I think it's cool I think it's really really cool that you get a little international player and something were calling the World Baseball Classic. Might not why not. Why not what's everyone so frustrated about. Such a bat away from a to this way for and is well I forgot how much I like having baseball on at about 8 o'clock at night on a nothing night. I forgot how much I love baseball as my evening background sport. It's really nice when you're doing something else as well like an NBA game you gotta gotta pay attention to because you never know when the big highlight plays and happened whatever or talking about. Tomorrow might happen at any moment in an NBA game I mean if you walked away. From the warriors and thunder and you miss the it's from that happened after the jump ball you basically missed the story of that game. Where in baseball there's all sorts of opportunities to. Look at some worlds look somewhere else it's. Lots of time between pitches today I guess they're trying to solve these problems may be violently side to me it's not a problem I've never been at a baseball game and thought. Top top top top Dresser pastor pastor like I'd like baseball because it slows down yeah that's me. And it was nice having baseball back and like. Every one. Is one of those things where it's nice to see we have common ground I've always said. When you go to your first couple baseball it takes. Three or four games on TV. Three or four games in person. In May be a little bit more for the more novice fewer to know what that is off the bat it's an easy see Matt Vasgersian. Was dialing up a home run calls for balls that morning to get to the track last night. Canaccord routine catch. It but but off the bat it takes a while for your Major League eyes to adjust. It really does not I can tell you. I consider to gain. Blindfolded. And pretty much just on the sound of it tell you whether or not that'll be a home run like you can hear. A well nodded home run you can just hear it's easy. To see it ought to be a little deceptive it can be a little deceptive I I get really good at it but on the guy can clock almost the forty time went by allies if I watched the come by and problem Matt dispersion everybody in Dodger Stadium you could tell it's very early in the baseball season because anything that was basically. Better than a pop up to shortstop was greeted like might be all right. So there's that it's just good to have baseball back in May mean. Remember. Oh baseball. Let's do it. Let's do it. Damon haters out there must hate John Miller's adios pullout dot. I love that stuff. Lob it. Again if you offered me John Miller. Doing his Japanese Vin Scully impression for two innings a night I dig it. There's nothing better than. John Miller doing Japanese and Scully and that we don't have Vince Scully anymore we need a little bit more of that and are now it's. So the warriors are loose as possible. That's good. Baseball fans are excited for the coming seasons that's good. Now we have raider fans talk about one more time here and on Monday. We all know what. One might be going down here. It's terribly upset and there is a very interesting column today written in the east bay times and I'm gonna share review about how you know. Oakland is basically just put its eggs in the wrong basket again and again and again. And there is no doubt that. Whatever chance he had to win marks heart back left town a long time ago. This isn't a relocation. As much as it is a divorce. You know there's no more love in this marriage. And if you say well OK you know Oakland solos a raiders stomped on the raiders and gotten no emotions left for Oakland not the only emotion is. Discussed can't leave you fast enough. Every single one of Marc Davis's actions points to that some of his words would draw you back to another conclusion like whenever he says I care about the fans and Oakland. Trumped by action. Without a doubt. If the biggest deal was voted down it is going to be the single most embarrassing day of mark davis' entire life. It is going to be. A clear message to the Oakland Raiders did what we don't think you of who we don't think of you is appear in this group. Your an outsider in this group of NFL owners you do not belong in year on nimby stat it's not in my backyard we don't watch you here anymore. If that happens to the raiders they're gonna come back just so tail tucked between their legs embarrassed. Am even though there's all these. Articles saying he's got the votes it's done people count these things for a living say he's got the numbers. Nothing's over until it's over. Nothing is over until it's over and there is no doubt about this. Could still have a monkey wrench thrown and it. I'm confident that there's anything I know about this team it's there. Ability to not get a stadium rendered. So trumps their ability to do that that. I'm gonna have to see it to believe it but a lot of people in the wind in the know. Really think that this is going to be a sad Monday for raiders fans. And if it did if it is I'm just gonna tell you right now that Las Vegas really is the town were big ideas go broke all the time. I saw an article that said. I'll betcha that ten years from now if this move does happen that the Vegas raiders would be. More popular and profitable than one of the teams in LA. Because it's. San Diego Chargers basically the most dead on arrival team in the history of sports. Although I did see did the only. Tickets available for their boutique key stub hub senator stadium whatever they're going to be playing in there's only like 600 season tickets left well and there are all. The left over seats that no one really wants because there's some obstructed view railing. Com. All I can tell you is this stint. As are saying yesterday that that's not really the Eiffel Tower. And that's not a real volcano kids. That's a fake too. And those are the real canals of Venice your just in the mall at the Venetian. And by the way that girl really is an interest Sydney you know she's working tonight. Now blackjack dealer. Doesn't really want you to win you are a nameless faceless card player. Replaced by the person. After you you replace the person that was there before you you are irrelevant. Although you do get a great blackjack dealer does life and up the night in the trip it really does it when you get a cold dealer. Nothing in life is as much fun is like a rolling blackjack table full of happy people and a dealer thrown aces and faces that everyone's just excited. That's the best time that's a tacit. There's at blackjack tables and roulette tables and not rural roulette for morons blackjack tables craps tables yeah that's where yeah. That's really funny it's so much as well memories. Are popping up right now being at a black checked it -- racquet that's where the flooding that's the funniest. What Vegas is tempting but it's an illusion all of its all an illusion. That room isn't something you should get used to that poker don't get used to her either the attention that you get from the strip club girls don't get used to that. This school club is literally gonna hand you'll build its gonna drop your jaw at the end of the night they're not interest in parting with you you're just a schmuck at the table tonight. There's no legitimate. I'll motions for visitors it's all a simulation. Now maybe there's a Las Vegas that we don't know about all the locals there and they'll be the ones but are under Stalin yet. That everything that happens in Vegas is something that you want to leave behind you quickly and not discussed on Monday. And I guess I could see a scenario where yes sure the million plus people who live there that have nothing to do with the gaming industry year in the strip and avoid like the plague they're gonna be really happy than an NFL team has finally come to them and of course they're gonna become fans and okay great. May be that happens but you're never gonna be a raiders again you're gonna be an illusion of the raiders again that's a real volcano that's that's the Vegas one. Whatever the raiders are whatever that mythic feeling about them is whatever the autumn wind is a pirate like all of that dose. The raiders eerie blue collar. Lunch pail kind of football team wall the world of the NFL went to glitz and glamour. The Oakland days were decidedly not gutter to be Oakland Raiders were decidedly not glitz and glamour. The Oakland a's are decidedly not glitz and glamour. But you can get away without a field to team up people recognize. You do it in a nice stadium. The NBA is definitively glitz and glamour and that's why the warriors are peace in Oakland. Police out done. We want bigger we want sexier we want cooler. Football it should work. It should work they're gonna be moving into a piece of property that is like a third of the size of the property to delete. What the infrastructure traffic nightmares are already being discussed and how this thing is gonna cost 900 million dollars more to the state in the data just to build everything around it. You know this is. This is set you know and someone's here you know look I'm I'm not a knock and argue semantics. Which picky listeners today Damon when you say the raiders are divorcing Oakland it's not true Mark Davis is divorcing Oakland art that's like saying that dot. You know deed. You know if I say Mickey Mouse I mean Disney. Rain you know Mark Davis is the raiders that's his family business he's taking it with him. Please don't get caught up in semantics today don't have time for people gorgeous so. So did his listening for something that they don't like they missed the message of what were actually saying this is a pro Oakland's. Program this is a pro Oakland show anyone would have you. Believe otherwise is a just got here yak off that you should never listened to there lose their their contents is worthless. Act in my ass off Damon your finally given in that the raiders are honors you'll or of course spell. And gone yet. But it looks like they're on their way out of town. If you wanna victory lap that say you got that wrong gaffe I IE if I really thought that there. Distrust of Mark Davis. Would echo over anything else but apparently there's enough money on the table where they're gonna is gonna roll with it even though they know it's a bad idea. That's every single. Story see attached to this. They're gonna close their eyes and they're gonna vote yes knowing that it might even not be the right idea knowing that only a moron. Would leave this for that. Or maybe moron. Is a little bit much how about the yeah I guess the saying would be. The on accomplished. And it cut. The did did the person who couldn't put it this is a heavyweight city may be in a heavyweight. I don't know anybody who makes you hear that isn't the best at what they do. There's a tough town to survive in both sides of the bridge. You know. This is this the first class town if you not to be a first class operation may be Las Vegas in the trailer park is is where he should be added I don't know I don't. 888957957. It was a number we got callers on hold already fantastic we are going to get to you Marcus Thompson the first of three big warrior conversations we're having today the first in markets the second would Tim like the third with Ian Clark who's gonna join us at 530 today here on the day membership. 8889579570. Is the number lower tracking down markets let's get a couple calls up and on the air we got down Jose. Fremont Jose or not 57 the game which don't not. And what's not and anybody. They ain't bad morrow a bit divorcing mark David they're actually summer. No marks divorcing mark's marks Marat is leaving for the trophy wife. They're usually the women engages the war and and everything and it caught in. But dom they managed to talk about the raiders commitment you play like that debt march song orbit it was 21 gun salute. Here's the deal we don't do anything that mimics the mocs like how they honor military dead I've played taps on my show once in a guy from the military. Wrote me a a sincere letter about how taxes. Is not be interpreted. And you know what it's like it's like I I agree yeah I his right I am not going to play taps for the raiders when they leave. I can tell you this if Monday they're out. I would do everything I tend to never say the word raiders. On this team again or on this air again on the station again. They'll simply be known as the leaders. Later. Leaders. That's a good day I mean I I'd I'd I'd I'm. I'm gonna be all done helping their branding. If they're leaving the Bay Area. Chris Collins from west Oakland what's going on Chris you're 957 a game. I'd daily you know JC caller so do you like 92 public might point to get out of that okay. Okay okay okay it's what a bit at her. Format you're about work David and quality time right in Kabul when you're not you know it's not. Not guilty in that situation it go at that ball long age old routine. Dole where aid because. Tips and literally cannot move niche and they're all the trouble one more. Would call and it made it no no there aren't that it was their first choice when they're literally prisoners at everything. At all on you know like that I get out like your old night at 28. I've on another ride whether an L and you know now. And that worked fell apart here I thought about how he wants. Which he loved it and you'll really. At all or art to it quite a bit tight at. You want. Action like you that collapsed three years they've been elsewhere and that ball. The law on ports that are. Arts and at the pocket it was good date that they that they secured fight at. The first thing you know what they're telling our. I worked. At the cut at thirteen it would keep you support that. It. Was that Bible how. It it will all want that. Called him. Put the habit at that jet turned their ticket insult people like all the great people out. Cheap. In the air up here. Why. Would accept it might seem to hit my. Game. Hacked and thank you very much JT let's get aware that every day. Does it look it was a well prepared impassioned call from sand and did that that cares deeply about this and and I I I appreciate you call that we got mark this. That's what I've been told Marcus Thompson ready to join us here market's good to have BI and saw you over at practice today. That's that's a loose basketball team whatever was hanging over them. A couple weeks ago it seems like that storm is kind of blown out of town don't you think. They have banned until the job to stop certain kind of rank this. In. All popular with remind. When they were going through it he's like ours there what everybody. Who let everybody speak but I. And then of course now he likes yet so you. They do it's what happened they'd do it its regret that about it in return of the in the warriors. And now agent interventional. They make everybody else look like idiots for being worried in the first place. Yeah there's a lot of hot takes out there that are being laughed that at this point in time bomb on look at that. The basketball team. Vet with out Kevin Durant is playing some of the best defensive basketball they played all year last handful of games they're they're holding teams under a hundred points the shooting percentages are in the mid thirty's for their opponent. If you're doing all that without the rant. When you get him back and by the way it really looks like they're gonna get him back he was moving around look good today I thought. Totally unencumbered by the worries of you know a knee injury at least that's the way it looked to me. This team is is I think going to be. At the right place at the right time when the playoffs start what might throw them off the timetable. Maybe like they're a tough physical type of EU banned build out of clothes now. You know bill I don't know because. Like like he's in the what they're doing it out there playing without Kevin Berry. In the united outside players whose team they're just better. And they don't even have to play their best to win most nights that best. That's kind of difficult part that's probably why everybody freaked out. When they were loses it's because they've looked normal it looked like a regular team that actually had to lose street. But the reality is they're just so it's better than everybody else could be it BA's super top the now they baited that they might erupt my. They get a first World Series would give her a team that like at. Had nothing to lose. If so what are would've would've. You know they'll make in the playoffs. Is there every day. And they've got to summarize in the county maybe they played. Period of their lives with a beard who weren't there at all is there aren't as wired. Are is built the by the way. He hit all the bigots here and don't. Like don't nobody even cautious about that the top players that are right at what happened. And you kind of lose the respect him oh wait wait Daly immigrant beat. That I would pave the way it did that down. He gets about it he ain't nobody like you know like outlook that. 300 million dollar in the right here. And he might be right well. So so right I didn't see him running up and down the court obviously we're not privy to open practice. But at the end he looked like he was cool and down. Like everyone else who just gone through practice and I'm not here reporting that Kevin Durant practiced right state warriors today. Why it. I'm telling you may and I think they're trying to Okie dope in the severity of this just a little bit I'm not saying it was an upgrade to. Might have been a great wanna hire. You know the warriors have a history is articulate I don't remember back can actually do swing and your bogey and it spurs the injury. And they say we Mecca to certain lob that took forever but he. Leaked out that he had micro fractures that are that are right well all right you know the thought ever since they have they've been really. Cautious about injuries. And a low ball everything so they pay a mighty going to be back. Is six weeks ago that today. Like passionately to look at things like if they like euphoric could be. Oh wow he's back earlier. For him to be back only about two courses well I think the law look at that of their history answered it all a everybody's. Well I know all not a single team in America that the idea yeah his recoveries behind schedule thanks or. Its content but market stops in here. A 957. Game I know you got your book coming out April 11 about staff. Number one where's my autographed copy so we can help you promote it number two. It's nugget did you buried somewhere in the area is there a big reveal a bomb to be dropped anywhere in this book that you'd like to totally giveaway to our audience right now. Why would you do not give an autographed copy this year record this first two originally going to be a diatribe about. You are great if so it's gonna be greater than auto. Or. It's going to be totally. Four page letter. It. It's Robert Mubarak. Several negative there. And one of them I don't know tall order of millions let you know it's very. It has a lot to do with a lot of people hate that scurry in the NBA. The steps Currie is heated. In the NBA all. All Bayern. Yet. People people there is BA circles especially former players and every leaker or they did battle lot like something about it rose in the wrong. Did you watch a telecast UT Latin. Oklahoma City they put up this. This picture is graphic all the top point guard that he gave the Westbrook very retirees now law and had the ball revert players only. At the ball who just our franchise leader. Doubles its staff. Keep in mind I'm almost like art only Warren has wanted to be his zip or team built around him. They deserve to lose. They don't want him on that level. And I explain why the book. Interest interest and looking forward to an explanation man Marcus Thompson always good to have beyond we could have a devastating day of radio come Monday if the NFL owners vote the raiders. To Las Vegas all indications are that's gonna happen. If there is a reason it doesn't happen it'll be because this why. Because they know what market it's own liberators they want the mighty. Would deeper pockets in the air force such a big market in if they don't vote there. That means they want him out could barely that it would no other option but to sell the team or give open view its stake to Somalia would be money. So it'd they have to vote no polite guy that they and it's that's OK it's time for him ago. And that may be the case. Even as stable. But that's part they've it is blog page is get a big pocket Albert company would have been you know. Are. We are here it is so I just don't see the NFL expanding in the next few doubt and I don't know. Where exactly franchise that these happily jump throw the the 48 market that a number side. Right which by the way they're basically agreeing to do that they're leaving five for forty something which is. That to explain that to me somehow some way Marcus thanks as always man good to talk to you will see you laugh Friday in oracle tomorrow night. Hurt you there as Marcus Thompson brightened a Leah for Paige love letters. Period of time. And I blush I guess for a a lot to say eighty famine I I can't wait to hear it all acuity hear from you is well 888957. 9570. By the way you wanna talk about a player that one team decided it definitely didn't like. Rajon Rondo running a Celtics flop swap. Against a part of the Big Three. Celtics' Big Three. I who's on the outside looked and then next. To tell you why the NBA doesn't like staff curry. So jelly. OK to butter that jelly would be really really nice that it jealous league it's a jealous league that I'm sure is convinced that. He jumped a whole lot of people to the front of the line when it cam days who's popular around here in the did that did the de Golden State Warriors did. The abnormal normally got a knock on the door before your let the club. Curry showed up with a VIP badge uses like get out of my way a man. And there's jealousy. From the tax on Damon if you don't know what the NBA does much of Currie you've no business doing what you're doing stop. AA there is absolutely. No. It is it's everything's anti warriors it's not just anti step curry this year. Players look at staff curry and they say here is a slight. Guy. Doesn't have the physical side is that ball with me every night many puts what thirty on everybody needs great shooter of all time in the sport were shooting is an attribute. I'm not interested in. It player jealousy. I'm not interest didn't player jealousy not one bit it's it's irrelevant to me. If they're not jealous of Hugh Hewitt stepped her. Now if you're the type of person is like man wanted to I had rather start when John Bolton staff curry I'm guessing you don't know. Thing about the game of basketball. Or where it's headed. And that's where an awful lot of the jealousy lies these players Deion are looking back at their own careers and thinking man if I'd been given the green light the wait staff has been given the green light I would have been able to do that. Probably the gap now I'm sure you would have been able to just knock down 400 threes in the season no prop. You wanna talk about real dislike here is true honest to god player dislike. Rajon Rondo this is from Tim Kato SB nation says that. They're planning a 2008 Boston Celtics reunion this summer it's gonna be the ten year anniversary of their championship together. And he told Marc spears dad ray Allen's not invited. Jesus shovels worth. Not invited her. It's because he bolted to the celtics' Big Three to be part of the South Beach phenomenon would LeBron and then get knocked. Not the Celtics out in the Eastern Conference finals. So. They're all still real mad about that okay. Rajon Rondo says we were wore those guys in Miami to go to the enemy that's unheard of in sports well it's not unheard of but it's damn near common now. Rondo said the decision not to invite Allen wasn't made by Campbell by others who indicated they would prefer the NBA's all time leading three point shooter to remain.
