  • we can't talk to them afterwards.

  • It makes no sense.

  • I'm a grown man.

  • I'm gonna do what I want to dio.

  • If I wanna go see my family, I'm gonna go see my family.

  • They can't tell me I have to stay in a room 24 7.

  • If it's that serious, then maybe we shouldn't be playing.

  • There is no bubble.

  • Then what everyone has to accept if you want to be responsible and get through this is if it's an issue of no, we could take personal responsibility.

  • Take it then.

  • You can't have it both ways.

  • Is Georgia wants to get a paycheck, doesn't wanna be in a bubble and also doesn't want to follow protocols and be responsible.

  • That makes no sense to me.

  • And because I believe there are enough people, Stephen A who feel as George Hill does.

  • And you understand why, at a certain point you want to get back to your life because enough people feel like George Hill does.

  • I believe the best course of action is to have a bubble like they just had, which was extremely successful.

  • They had zero Cove in cases during that time.

  • Max, please understand?

  • I'm not disagreeing with a bubble I to I totally understand that I don't disagree with you, but let me tell you why I'm gonna address it differently than you just did.

  • Because my mind is somewhere else again.

  • I agree with you the bubble.

  • But my mind is somewhere else.

  • Max, do you notice that you have heard Ah, whole bunch of players and folks complaining about the safety protocols that have been instituted by the MBA.

  • Max Charlie, Do you know of any situation or circumstance where you heard the players say, Don't pay me?

  • Is there any player that came out to say, Jack, don't pay me.

  • Don't pay me.

  • Has any of them said that the answer's no.

  • And this is why somebody like George Hill, who I respect and like, Come on, man, stop.

  • The reality of the situation is the NBA is trying to get as close as possible to save in its season.

  • And we have to understand in these players have to understand that so many people have to understand there are frontline workers.

  • And I'm not talking about the health professionals first responders I'm talking about with these professional sports leagues.

  • They're not the owners who have lawyers.

  • They're not the players who have representation player association, representation.

  • They just work for the teams.

  • They work for the organizations who protects them.

  • Okay, so you would think that being is responsible as you possibly can, you know, would come to the forefront of your mind because you're thinking about somebody other than yourself.

  • When you got contact tracing and things of those nature that can endanger the lives of other people, you know, you gotta pay attention to those kind of things.

  • Some of these guys are not doing that.

  • And I don't think that George Hill really gets what he's saying here because think about what, Max, when you leave work or whatever Were you at Max You home, ain't you?

  • Ain't you home with your family?

  • I know I am the point that I'm trying to make it.

  • There's a whole bunch of us that can't go.

  • We can't hang out.

  • We can't socialize.

  • There's a lot of things we can't dio as average everyday American citizens.

  • The things that we that were normal, it's not normal anymore.

  • We can't do that right now.

  • We gotta get vaccinated We gotta make sure that you know, you gotta You gotta get those numbers down.

  • You got to do all of those different things.

  • The fact of the matter is the sacrifices that these players have to make where it appears a bit extreme.

  • It's something that they brought on themselves.

  • And here's the reason why I don't mean to covert 19.

  • I'm just talking about the circular.

  • You don't want a bubble, right?

  • So the MBA didn't give your bubble, but they said, no bars, No lounges.

  • Don't be in crowds of people or whatever.

  • In other words, you got your immediate family people that you are around a lot the time you got to stick to them.

  • Because when you invite new people into your circle, ultimately you could expose yourself and then you could expose players.

  • And as a result, games gotta be postponed, if not flat out.

  • Cancel.

  • And it's gonna compromise our bottom line, which is ultimately going to compromise your bottom line.

  • George Hill is an intelligent young man.

  • He's been around the league for a while.

  • He understands this.

  • Why are you acting like you?

  • Don't you know better?

  • The reality is, is that this is the situation we all got to deal with.

  • There's no way around it, Okay, if you want to have a season so again, Max, I don't disagree with you about the bubble.

  • What I would say is that to give them anything close to a level of normalcy for the regular season and then a bubble as the season wanes and we get to the postseason, it's something that I would be more in favor off.

  • But that's assuming that players are exhausting the means and measures toe exercise, all the safety protocols necessary.

  • If you're not willing to do that, that damage, you deserve the bubble or just come out and enough you know what?

  • You don't have to pay me because I have no problem with one single player that stands up and says, You know what?

  • You could keep your money.

  • You don't have to pay me.

  • I'm just gonna go home and chill with my family.

  • I have no problem with that, but don't play and wine and mold while you collecting the Czech, a Czech that most people would never get under normal circumstances, let alone in an environment where 40 plus million people have been furloughed, 20 million jobs have been lost, and people out there struggling and starving, and we got food lines in the United States of America, people are standing on food lines miles long because they don't have a job and they don't have the means toe feed themselves and their family.

  • You cannot come out and say this kind of stuff publicly when you are in that privileged position, when all it's calling is for you to be sensitive enough and make the necessary sacrifice for the betterment of the whole.

  • Not just yourself.

  • You cannot do that, George.

  • Or anyone who's thinking like George.

  • Hopefully, yeah, Hopefully, Stephen, As you said, this you know or alluded to.

  • This is someone who's frustrated in the moment.

  • Doesn't like to.

  • No one likes to be told where to go, who to see how to dress.

  • When you go outside, nobody likes it, and it feels like it's an infringement on your you know, liberty.

  • In a way, I understand.

  • That's why I'm a grown man.

  • I'm gonna make my own decisions, so hopefully that's just an expression of frustration that would be understandable.

  • Presumably, George Hill is not one of these paranoid morons who doesn't like, believe in the coronavirus in Cove in 19.

  • He understands it actually exists, how it's transmitted and the danger involved.

  • And presumably also, he understands that what I said earlier, when you wear a mask, when you make those decisions, it's not about you and your health you're protecting my mask protects you.

  • Your mask protects me.

  • The decisions we make protect each other.

  • It really is a self less behavior toe.

  • Wear a mask to socially distance.

  • It's not.

  • It's not about your own health.

  • It's selfless.

  • And and, of course, when you know that gets frustrating.

  • Hopefully Stephen A.

  • He is simply expressing that frustration in the moment.

  • And when he calls down, he will see the wisdom in in following protocols.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

we can't talk to them afterwards.
