  • So I want to thank you again for all the work you've done.

  • I just was curious on Malcolm with Cove it and what's happening in the world.

  • How is that complicated?

  • How does that change the way the charities worked out there?

  • Uh, well, you know, it's for one.

  • It's hard to get over there.

  • It's harder to see the work and the wells that are being built, but the fundraising doesn't stop.

  • I think now is even a better time to fundraise more than ever, because I think, uh, covert is exposed.

  • So many deficiencies we have in this country.

  • Um, you know, I think it's unimaginable that people are going through that already.

  • Didn't have much.

  • Andi, I think people understand that.

  • So fundraising has gone Well, um, it's just really hard to get over there, but things have not slowed down.

  • We're still making a lot of progress.

  • Malcolm.

  • Obviously your team the patient's hired New York in as the new head coach.

  • Have you had a chance to speak with him yet?

  • This is this is literally is up to date is possible.

  • If you just had lunch with the man.

  • I love it.

  • Of course, the next question.

  • After that, Malcolm is.

  • When would you start playing for your new coach?

  • You are the vice president, a vice president of Players union.

  • What can you tell us about when you think next season might start?

  • There's certainly been reports of a push that the players wanted to go back to the possibility of Martin Luther King Day, whereas the owners would want to start closer to Christmas.

  • I'm interested in your opinion.

  • What do you Where do you expect next season to begin and what do you want?

  • Wow, Taking it down.

  • So, you know, I think it's I think it's just what you said.

  • I think those are the two options, Um, where they're going to start MLK Day, which I think a lot of the players are leaning towards or we're going to start, Um, you know, the 20 seconds at Christmas time, But you know, the huge differences revenue, its revenue.

  • I'm trying to get, you know, each season back on track to start in that September October range.

  • Um, so I think calculations are being done on both sides on how much revenue would be lost for each potential date.

  • And, you know, we'll have to come to some type of agreement and go from that.

  • There's a deadline tomorrow.

  • A dreamer.

  • Danowski came on our show yesterday, and he said that he expects that deadline to possibly be extended again.

  • It's been extended several times.

  • Do you expect it to be extended again?

  • Absolutely, Absolutely.

  • Um, you know, the way he talks of going.

  • This is a complicated issue.

  • There's a lot of balance Ah, lot of minds working on this collaboratively on both sides.

  • So, um, you know, it's it's gonna take some time, and, you know, I don't think a few weeks, but I think it will take at least a few more days.

  • Malcolm, Look, man, I want to say I appreciate I want to say I appreciate everything that you're doing in the community as a young leader, as a former player and a former MBA bet event.

  • I'm proud of what you're doing and what you're bringing to the table in my selfish ways, I want the season to start.

  • I need Christmas Day games, right.

  • But I want to talk about what you're gonna do this year on the court, right?

  • Um, you know, my only fully healthy season has been my rookie year on in the past three years.

  • I've, you know, sat out of 15 to 20 games, so that's that's really hurt me.

  • And I think that's really hurt my team.

  • Um, but in the second piece is man making shots.

  • You know, this league is all about making shots.

  • It's all about shooting that three ball now.

  • I'm having to create for my teammates.

  • I'm having to shoot tougher shots off the dribble.
