It is great to have you here hopefully had a good day and I have been working hard all week. Friday's a common. We're going to be looking forward to Friday tomorrow we're going to be over Oakland G on how we got warriors. We got kings that's tomorrow night. They got a game on Sunday as well. We were actually over in Oakland earlier today we went to warriors practice. That's a loose basketball team there's just no other way to say it. There is no doubt in my mind that they believe that they can win a title without Kevin Durant and then getting back getting million bags is to be gravy. I don't know if I go that far to say I'm pretty sure they can take on all comers without Kevin or coupled with Kevin Durant I think they can take on all comers if the seven game series were played exclusively. On the other teams court. I don't think anybody's beating V wade the rant Golden State Warriors in the seven game series. And that's that. I know some people adjusted. Temperature in the room on the warriors or tried to a few weeks ago we said stay with net thermostat don't touch at the I think they're going to be just fine the defense at the playing right now if you wanna use couple defensive metrics are it's the best defense have been playing all year. They're doing that would out Kevin Durant. A very drew both do our roads are ruler homeboy. We don't know that heavenly. So the idea Clark at 530 we're looking forward to that. We've been talking about the readers. We've been talking. Tomb Raider fans some accepting reality some yelling. At a brick walls. I always know who the dumbest among you is thanks to the tax line. The person who listens to me discuss this topic and then just gets angry at me because they think I've framed it orally. No once frame this more poorly than the owner you worship okay. No one's frame this more poorly than that. Irreplaceable how could the NFL. Live without them Davis family not the greater for raider fans do you realize that the date of the Davis family is what's holding you back. It's no longer like beat. Insist it's to it's over minutes just it it looks like this is sold. Oppressing. You know issues and things and no one wants to acknowledge like no one goes outside. And 1 o'clock. In the event. No one does no one wakes up on a Sunday morning saying oh man let's Texas assist us shake off this four day -- is standard goes straight to. A football game. There's no casino that's going to wanna get you there. They want you stand property. And I am confident that. The raiders are gonna fall ought to fashion the minute dead they've become less fashionable I mean there's there and there isn't that well my grandfather brought me here in my dad brought. But Mike. Autographed brother brought my dad to a raider game. My dad brought meter reader games you know did the generational thing is gonna take a while to kick in that's what you got here right now. Sometimes you just can't talk common sense to people. And here's a story that sort of illustrates that too and I know that this might upset some people who hear it. I am not here to say that the American disabilities act is a wonderful thing and people who need more help and life need to be given the same access to things that that we have access to. That is a very American thing by the way do you know what they call you. In in Europe if you are disabled in some way now. They call you. They call you at home free stay that's what they call it the there are sidewalks in Europe that are not. Wheelchair accessible. There's no lawsuit that people in wheelchairs can file against Paris if bomb there at their bosses are not accommodate basically if you if you are. Less than Agile mobile in the rest of the world that's on you and sorry that's one of the things that makes America great we try to make it an even playing field. Especially for people who've had some of the worst luck. Disadvantaged dealt to them in terms of your able bodied. This story about the blind. I can tell you right now that. I know for sure there are more blind people listening to my show right now then you would probably guess. Because I've dealt with its portion of my audience was talking about something. Were eyesight was a topic and I had several calls from people said Damon I listened to the radio all the time it's because I am blind this is where I go for my information and entertainment because I do not have sight and that so that makes. Total sense night. Joked around us and sorry to hear that but you know it's it's that it's the death that I have contempt for its. The deference that's that's useless to me you're death I don't care fight salted deer or not. Kidding kidding kidding me. But seriously deft Don joining from the wind however do I'm never gonna pick sides against the blind. Up until right here and now. Eats up if you heard of each set beats. Has been sued for not lighting blind customers order food from their kiosks and I just wanna read this to you under the caveat. Where dissident. And where does an okay. It federal lawsuit seeking class action status has been filed against San Francisco fast food chain pizza. Lawsuit filed against eats a parent company. In New York on Thursday by the disability rights advocates in national nonprofit legal center. The plaintiffs are the American council of the blind and Michael go Dino is legally blind New York residents who alleges that he does and one of the restaurants in New York locations. Was un able to use the cell service kiosk or independently collectors who'd from the cubbies. But those you who don't know this is a chain was founded in San Francisco it specializes in teen wall bulls it's very healthy eating gaffe. And no one works there except for one person behind a wall who puts the meal that you order. On an iPad. Or on line. Your team lost salad will be waiting for you when cubby number five go to company number five you swipe your credit card they know what you. You take your salad there's no waiters that cashier's. No cashiers no waiters there's one right downtown at Rincon center and all about it because that's where my wife works. Right around it so I've seen it. She's like you wanna go to lunch there what do they have to eighteen wobbles. If you look at it yeah hi let's go somewhere that you can eat something delicious gimme a break. So the whole point is that you go away and you don't deal would anyone you order it on an iPad. You pick up your food and you walked out. Can a blind person now sue apple because they can't use an iPad. Now I thought about that Marty. Blew a hole in that argument C one is an item the other is a place of business. An iPad as an item in place of business is not an item it's a place that everyone deserves access to. But their business model involves an iPad. IPad cannot be made rail and sure of it. Now is there something they can do to offer like a plug in his speech rhetoric is something something I don't I don't know but the fact that this went right to like class action lawsuit. It's what it's just so wrong in the it drives me not so. Can a blind person Su fan Deng go because they cannot buy movie tickets in braille. I would blind person to going to a movie why people. Race. Listen to them they can of them. Is there a braille version of iTunes. I'm sure there's some pain that they can use with their phone and so forth I mean theory. Right. Easy fix can't they do something like that acts like what we have to go straight to the courtroom. Suggested happy for me it's ridiculous. Should have access beats a. Has ignored the needs of thousands of potential blind customers a real like I I guess like. Legally yeah I here we are coming from but at the same time you also have the right to go to lunch somewhere else you can't go to lunch anywhere else that's where you have to eat today. Sir or madam would you take no. Anywhere else this is that a big inconvenience for you that a place that you were never really eating at now you candy that still edges. It it I don't understand why someone would just be like you know a man you don't want me I don't want you on good and it. I am not I would he want. In a way. The blind eats a customer is the raider fan. We still. No matter what I wanna be a raider fans well they're about to leave you I wanna dear greater threat they don't like you they're leaving you actively I raising ticket price is right before they leave you I don't care I'm a raider fan and that's just the way it is. When did you do something else. I believe people should have access to everything. Did the same time it's just a teen wobble like there's a bigger fight for you out there blind community I'm sure of it. Team wobbled to eat some cuts at all my lawyer. It seems like an easy fix them. Like I think they can figure this one out I would hope so. I would hope so. I just add this edit everything is like oh congratulations you invented something to really early working well for you but this. You will slice of the country doesn't work for them and so now we're gonna suit you won't try to ruin your business. It's just crazy.

It's a super food yet try it very healthy for you beta and that's a super food. Aiken is delicious. Howard's gone from Clayton he wants to talk about the raiders. Howard are you bracing yourself for Monday. You the first really enjoyed each ago. And the prep this actually. Happened that magic well you know through our man in that respect users' right. You know glance comet one last comment that you made it to you right between pocket held true. You got it right where to 1966. I'll leave that particular hole when they do and it broke the law. In particular hole so a thinking back in May. That we ought to do it. I'm in a courtroom off you know it goes up market situation is your pick to root on the right player. Our rate of and maybe normal flu but that's why it. It's in your heart sits in your heart you know some people stayed abusive relationships because that's just what their heart tells in the duke. And I'm not gonna deny you have your heart tells you to feel Howard. I just know that. The minute I sensed disloyalty. And anything. I instantly like it less. And the minute loyalty is proven to me. I know I always like it more. That's just who I am that is how I'm wired not everyone needs to be like mean not everyone needs to think like me. I get it. However you wanna deal with this it's a very personal thing your sand and is incredibly personal view. But I just. Totally. Totally believe. That there is only one way to really ruin the raider brand it. And by the way I believe you can ruin your rate I can I believe you can ruin your brand while your making money hand over fist and if you do not believe me look at the niners. They just had the three most profitable years and a history of their franchise's existence. And they were the worst three years of football in a history of the franchise's existence. And. Does that make you feel. As they make you feel. Novel look at all the money jets making it through parades for that my owner makes the best profit. My team's profit margin. Who cares. I don't. Do you. The 49ers are worth more than ever and I've never seen them so universally disliked as of right now just because your. Pack in money into a vault. Doesn't mean your brand is doing great. And less. World is only money do you. Dan conquered your not 57 game what's up. There. I put myself from Monday a prologue. You know. Dug up actions speak louder or is a bit watered one vehicle last year people remember. Share a lot in. Oakland opera and for a minute dollar ball out like you've. Yet. That cannot change what we yeah. Her name now that you. Relocation all. Opportunity. Day in Oakland built the state. With its key does not care about the fan at all so they were my preparation has been. I am forty odd years at the scene there at that on Monday at the opener and ago. That out to its aunt and my year at the sole. And pregnant by that followed them out there which now. Stand. Out right. In. Using it and keep. It. There is. Here. Few more years. I bet you won't count clout in here and how. You have sent a team. Treatment. Outreach act an and it net you know. The air ship. It to. Easter. Would not let it go it. You want. You go ahead and follow this. Soccer lie if they stay here it was. Public though you'll leave dump. Thank you very much I appreciated it and and there is something. You know people are so dug into their position and Casey didn't realize what the biggest problems that we haven't politics. Is people are so dug in to their beliefs that they're not interested in what you believe at all. There's a lot of raider fans who do not wanna hear what I'm about to tell you you think you are such a huge raider fan. At a site. At a mind. Is going to be a big test for. Out of sight out of mind watch how much. The raiders being the center of your life is easily move to buy do something else now. If that's what happens. An and I can tell you this is a really weird weird weird weird weird weird. Relationship. Because you were born. In V. What's the word I'm looking for. The that this is an abnormal way to be a stand like the whole like well you know they left just before then they came back and it really doesn't matter where they are to me the raiders are an idea more than they are a place in my mind didn't. You know raider nation and that sounds good because you are in. Yeah yes it probably would have made sense for them to move to LA. To risk. Franchise that has been this poorly run. In one of the biggest Sugar Bowl canary in the cages. Experiment sports will ever undertake ten professional sports succeed in Nevada. We'll find out. We will find out together. Text line. Ayman. The Davis family is broken up with the Oakland more times than Ross broke up with Rachel signed Chandler Bing. And weld on difference reference. Well Don. Last night American cared deeply about the World Baseball Classic. By Monday morning you'll probably never think of it again that a that the at a site at a much. The best definitely get the first inning of opening day seemed like the world classic blue baseball. Real Major League Baseball. Actually game set did that whatever happened not so whenever I saw last night that was cool I like debt markets stroman icu. Randy Crawford making love to pressure. Got DJ in Fremont says he's a season ticket holder DJ Syria. I'm doing great sir how much are excellent thank you what do you got. So moderator Eric Holder and I'm or shall I just called in action hadn't questioned us. Much. I don't I do how good our team wobbles and are you going to join the class action lawsuit to eat them. Yeah. She I was in away from so. I'm an older people aren't that's. A solo act as a raider season ticket holder. Will you be flying to Las Vegas if they leave you. It is impossible now to two world. And now gitmo why shouldn't should not gonna wanna actually go to equal. You're handed. And like you shouldn't. What were looking clash tool when OPEC which can go and collar and not still round looks. Yeah and armor Batman. You know so what track you you know toward. It came on you know sports my my inner ring. And and have student tickets you know which agreed in amber. You know that they can then I would want. You know and now it looks we treated that way. It is dated treating fans poorly is something that the world of sports gets away with far too often. And usually the reward for treating a San poorly is doubling the franchise's value or the pockets of an owner. TJ thank you for your service first of all he said your veteran. And thank you very much for listening it's great to talk to you today appreciated and stay witnessed he wobbles seriously. 8889579570. We got a lot of people on hold we're looking forward to talking to you we went to warrior practice today though and caught up with Ian Clark who's going to play a bigger role on this team especially when the playoffs began. We will bring your interview with Ian Clark next on 957 game. Today we went over to warriors practice to just take a look at practice elect pop in every other week to see how the team's doing and again that looks like a really loose goose. Care fit care of anything fancy free care free 53. But Miley angry carefree basketball team indeed. You know a guy doesn't have a care in the world at least doesn't come off that weighs Ian Clark he's a cool customer. He's a really nice guy and we got to sat down within today but to sit down and and just talk about. Where this season has gone by he's really come on of late and of course we dabbled in the little NCAA tournament as well since that's where. We kind of heard about him for the very first time at least Yury NCAA tournament dork like I am go Belmont anyways. Here is our conversation with the Ian Clark great to see a man congratulations been playing great let lately. What's kind of unlocked it for him. That is this how will the team is doing I think we've found you know we will refine and groove right now. Just as we know way fast and guys being out and no one knows that for the most part I think we found a foundation of how we want to play him at nearby star monopoly. You know it's so funny going back to that San Antonio game left everybody in America screaming back to the NBA. The Steve Kerr should be arrested every one it's a bit it's a terrible broad. You knows great floor it was great for Ian Clark man I really felt like that was a coming out party for you. In some ways he took an awful lot of the load get a career high 36 that night have things felt a little different for you since then I. Come a little bit mom you've been put in different roles now. Noah after their game. But it as far as my confidence and everything like days in the same on you just being really being ready when my mom was called you know whenever coast. No cause I got on the floor just a few months off. Do we saw you wrapping up here this practice a shoot around you're in the corner with Patrick Carr looked like you guys have little shooting contest that that go who won. While one today. Like I come I got a little bit towards the end. You know he's he's his suit you well saw at no you don't win it's not you know. You are in an incredible situation you're talking about this outside and you know there's a lot of guys in the NBA. Earning their minutes every night proving themselves every night. You're doing it and an extraordinary situation knows not a lot of guys throughout their career can you got the choice of which MVP do I wanna go to for a little advice today. Don't have a coach that is like it's modern and wired it to understand players like Steve Kerr. How often. Are you grateful just to the situation because you've been in other situations too and this is just this something else. Man of the I've been listed in this situation common in last year. You know after they won the championship. And India in the new bath but Khomeini just being able to be around a lot of great thing is I learned a lot less it was a big learning curve for me being in this league both on and off the floor. How to carry myself and how to how to leave works they just come up. You know embracing that and not be scared to ask questions from guys like Andre his son and last Chileans or Bob both say and talk in the Steffan and then inject money Katy this year. As has been. He's been so grateful for me and help me. Not just to be a bit of that a player and a better person. Your friends your personal friends that you talk to must be incredible you know stands at basketball and must be. Wanting to learn an awful lot about this kind of threw you what is the number one question you get from your close friends. About this team the relationships you've made the situation you're in. Who's the best suited her better and that's what I get out of time. Yeah we know it's only been. The answer. This tell our manage our problems on trying to get through those does the servlet. But ISIS' and is been is been a great ride being able to to be in this situation man in and like you see is David at the rob on the court. You know with these guys they they played it right away doesn't care who is pretty. Is a. A joy to be around it and sort of caloric every day. One shot for your life curry Durant or clay who shoots it I always used to go with clay. Because even if he rims out it's the prettiest form. Are we talking cats as soon without an off the dribble because it's a shot for your life it is a catch and shoot. Open gym three. Five over play. Right now it's all right if ally ally which he said that you guys miss us it's this form is. Is Jimmy Chitwood exacts. Its entirety but I also play. Clay doesn't see any woman he seemed to have all this and know no matter at this if he's wide open this is 67 guys seven foot guy. Plays you you just you don't know either makes or misses it is really on him not to defend. And the thing is if you miss Disney newest realize he'd be like bad break man go to I mean there's there's this I know and if that's the exact absolutely not that Jackson. Playoffs are coming up soon. Every single coach in the NBA titans their bench you're obviously going to be as big party that tightening has Steve Hardie calmed you you talk about. Your expanded role in the post season had you looked ahead in any way is how your rule might change get about six more minutes a night. He needed last year I could see in the playoffs come that's. Keep going up. He has talked the about it all and parcel Seattle art on I've lived here. You know it's not a fitness off the regular season ending gear up for the playoffs and make sure that a team in general rose and is going to be a stable and in god pieces today. And I think you know because that gonna count it. No and when I get to it but as far as those players no we don't have time obligated to this situation. Just going to be is as good as we can't right now in I love the game he had in Dallas he didn't just sit around. And wait for a shot to commute the perimeter you do a lot of dribble drive lot of penetrating you got to the rim an awful lot. That is the next level your game isn't. Definitely. Not just been one to miss and not be in just the Katzenbach that is there's not a perimeter there and David it's. Pay most of was this is being able to be at the point guarded times dinner and held the ball. And also in penetrated and make plays but also. No matter what guys that they live format that guys like Andre in the US in the sound innocent dead are great passes. The US great on the posts in a mid post being able to cancer in and make certain as soft goods. And I decide to keep more because he's always look at the everyone's talking about who's gonna replace whatever Bo didn't Barnes took with them. That post passing that's what the US is duplicated because. Both it was a great. Big man passer and I know David what I know ideally I would like David West game was intimidation power in defense I've no idea he had so much skill. Definitely definitely and it's come into this here I didn't really know him ever play a little before obviously but. You know he's he's not he always tells us to keep Gaza over to see you throw wind you'd least expect it if you don't think you're open which opened. And it is as easy but is Andy politics to resolve. You know got my step wouldn't have to work so hard notes for us to get a bucket we can bring to seeking unity any easy layups and he's office won't. Are you keeping an eye and the eight seedy looking at the battles that right now. You got Denver and Portland slug it out that eighth seed is a lot of talk of we we also got to make sure that we we take care about business. No no one empty seats so. I have looked ahead obviously got us to do to be tough but civil war we play. But also we got a mission that we're ready as well latte. I really appreciate you coming over. It is March Madness it's Thursday be the data that the dancers start up again today it's around a sweet sixteen. You went dancing three times he never picked up a win. But Belmont is a great story I mean I felt like. The reason why knew about you is because of Belmont tournament appearances and you don't three years in a row. What's that like. Are you satisfied would just having done it do you look back at it with some level of disappointment. Or was it just a great moment in time for union teammates. It was great. Every Kia wants the thing in the NCAA tournament and morrow threw two choices one of Belmont obviously was close to home it's a great school. But also they were winning and I'm always get a chance to play in the estimates and it was it was tough not win any game you wanna be no specially part of it. Their legacy is we've never mated up the first around the fourth of DNA but soon. To beyond it seemed that maybe you know for the school you wanted to put a program. It was a little disappointing but Polamalu I would say Damien my teammates had a great time. Those three years there we win is nothing like it you have fun going man and a city. Let it happened at. In it's it's you are well positioned guys there's no doubt about it I think a lot of people be lucky to trade places we view your he he got the right attitude to succeed got the right game to succeed in this league. When you talk to your. Your agent your parents your support system. What's your goal for your career as you look it you know where you are your career arc where do you want it to go how close she to being where you wanna be deep. Who would would you be happy being a piece of the warriors for a long time or do you have that. And I want my shot to be big guy and I don't care where it. It's. Obviously I'm grateful for every situations. And for me is is is kind of different. Timeouts to living in a lot. I think he keeps me grounded. You know I've always been since I came on the other candidates have a much soda and I try to keep day. You know as is his longest backhand obviously I want to in this league for a long time and indeed you know health would see any team and more. In in a positive way so I'll just not concede so work hard and hopefully wherever I am. Did defeat the player that I am. Hopefully going to be here for really long time there's a lot of things we expects that the expected this team. And then there the few pleasant surprises along the way you are one of the best surprises in the NBA we love watching you play man thanks much for sitting down thank you so what's that you. Very cool very cool great guy nice guy friendly is all get out and really. A very big role to play in the upcoming playoffs would you think a VU one away in 8889579570. We have more people on hold they wanna talk raiders they wanna talk what might becoming on Monday we're gonna have some wide open lines next hour to. I don't know if Chris Byrd just gonna make it in he is our world class adventurer. Who was just survival of the greatest tests of human endurance across an ocean on a standup paddle board. But unfortunately. LA axed. Is holding them up today he could probably paddled up here faster than he's flown here. So work kind of inane let's see what happens in the 6 o'clock hour mode and I hope you are too. Here on the day membership Chris Byrd itch crossed. The Atlantic Ocean. On a standup paddle board. It took. A hundred and thirty days to do it or whatever remedies are fronts it took months. It's one of the greatest triumphs of human endurance. In a journey that. Someone only would like a death wish would make. And he did that easier than he's been able to get from SFO. In the San Francisco. Scene. I just got a text from. His his try to handle her friend Nancy ward is arranging curtain criticize I'd techs Chris personally or DM him on you know Twitter we follow each other but I bundled through Nancy cushy setting up a little depressed were for him. So they were delayed at LAX. They were supposed to be here at 6 o'clock they said that they wouldn't be leaving until about 430 now because of the delay may help when they get here. Damon we're sitting on the tarmac at LAX flight delayed due to congestion at SFO estimated departure. She gives it to me are totally understand keep us in the loop. We let dad get going to be heading your way soon she sent me that just before four clock. She said GPS says that we will be in the city. GPS as will be in the city about 615. So you know they're there are way. Just a few minutes ago she. Sent me another message. Damon Chris has just been in a rear Ender in needs a tow truck come need to reschedule now seeks. The man crossed the Atlantic Ocean all loan on a glorified. Surf board. But getting from SFO. To San Francisco. Is it more difficult journey that actually probably had his life more endanger her. Think crossing the ocean by yourself what are the chances unbelievable. That she gets sucked feel terrible for the get it. I'll men say one of the coolest dudes in the world I really hope we can incorporate him on the show some out tomorrow. We unfortunately aren't going to be in San Francisco ourselves tomorrow we are going to be at oracle. So I I don't know how this happens. Damon have you seen the new Dave Chappelle standup on Netflix I have not yet. It's on the list everyone's. Giving that some serious thumbs up on the list. And rave reviews Dave Chappelle went from. Oh my god this is the funniest person on the planet 20 my god he's giving back fifty million even though he's the funniest person on the planet it's totally telling it now it's going to. I guess to make more money now than ever before like he he's this deal the F Netflix my hourly is Megan tons of money good friend that's but the only thing. What's worse than wasted genius. As a comedic genius. How do we get him on the issue. That's the question how do we get Dave Chappelle. In studio. God bigger than that I don't do that anymore. Phone talk. It hurts to ask. Damon I started my one man Ian Clark fan club two months ago he is Barbosa. Just wish Kurd and fallen level McCaw. He's killing Clarkson growth this year. I think that's that what I I Syria I understand yet but I also think you're exaggerating he's not killing in Clark's growth he also needs to grow Patrick because career and from a defensive presence McCaw gives you more. And Clark does. But Clark's offensive game is light years ahead of the cause. It faded for a little bit but that 36 the career high that he put on San Antonio out of school early ones as the only good thing. That came out of that game medicine San Jose thanks for calling match your 957 game how are you. I don't merit past Ottawa. When you like to it's on Monday. That got beat up his name. I mean. The raiders as he quality doctor Raj. One thing that we yes but the greater active right you know mark is C nightly news. Almost daily I'm done I'm done.
