  • you hear Mark Cuban speaking out about how white people have to stop being insecure or defensive, I think, he said about privilege when this when these things are brought up, its though the NBA's perceived, I think, for good reason as more progressive than, say, the NFL or Major League Baseball is, Dominique has pointed out, it's a pretty low bar.

  • It is still overwhelmingly a white, um, owned league.

  • What do you think the responsibility is for these white billionaire owners to speak out?

  • And how should they support?

  • Or rather, what do you think their responsibility is?

  • Given this these circumstances?

  • Well, I wouldn't necessarily Kattegat categorize ownership.

  • Um, I think it's all of us.

  • It's It's the players.

  • It's the coaches I know.

  • From my vantage 0.1 of the biggest things has has been to Teoh, understand and to educate yourself.

  • I think the more that you do that, the better feel you have, the more comfort you have.

  • And what I've found personally is whatever reluctance or discomfort there exists to talk about and really embrace and confront these issues for for white people, Um, that's that's a real first step, and then I think, you know, we see racism, you see discrimination.

  • It's practiced everywhere and it's practiced too much that our awareness has all been raised.

  • And I think you also hear that awareness isn't enough.

  • And I would I would agree with that.

  • I think a lot of a lot of people right now, hopefully more than a lot you know, would agree with that.

  • And one of the you know, the obvious things for me again.

  • Speaking from the vantage point of Ah, the white man who also enjoys that privilege is in those situations, it's It's not enough to not characterize yourself as racist.

  • You know, this is about combating and confronting racism and even when it exists in yourself.

  • And I think that's, you know, part of the transparency that we all need to look at ourselves first and then see ways that we can contribute.

  • Not only Teoh are our particular role, but how we fight that and combated and confronted.

  • And I think that's a pivot.

  • Hopefully that can continue to be made.

  • All right, I would take us back to the basketball bubble, so I've been thinking about a lot, how it's gonna impact different teams, and I was wondering what you thought, given that you have a young team, Do you think that being away from distractions and not having the travel is a boon to a young team like yours?

  • Or do you think that that's an extra hurdle that more experienced team might be more comfortable dealing with?

  • It's a great question, and one, I wish I could give a more concrete answer.

  • I'll tell you what my hope is.

  • I think teams that are connected, it's true.

  • You know, teams that are connected that are unselfish, that have leadership, those air, always the teams that you know.

  • There's a lot of talented teams, some maybe more so than others.

  • But those teams that have those intangibles of the ones that win and you know, I prefer to call it a campus in a bubble.

  • Um, but you do have some of the same, you know, psychological challenges.

  • And in that regard, I feel like competitiveness, you know, in different situations, you know, you were using the same ball, the baskets air still 10 feet.

  • But there's gonna be a lot of things that are different, and I think we're gonna be able to feel those as were there.

  • There's going to be more no malice E as you're there longer.

  • But I think that competitive focus, you know, will be something.

  • And really, you know, the best players in the world.

  • They have that, and to the extent that leadership is prevalent, I think that's part of being a great player.

  • That's what we see from the great pennant players in our league.

  • They practice that and they'll lead the way for their teams.

  • So if you're a team that doesn't have a zoo, were a more balanced team, Um, and I think that can that can be an advantage if we take advantage of it the right way.

  • Um, you know where we have different players that are stepping up at different times and we get more of a collective leadership from our group.
