Taken giant Medicare and I have Grammy ESP and very excited about this did its bit a minute Jason. That we heard from David in the ties have been built couple things have changed. But they're here with us now guy thinks or come out. How's everybody how the pubs everything. Well watermark. People that lord only got out the go to guy out of all. Got to who's got a clean and a coat. I'm out here you have observed you'll want to go to. Yes so so how's everything I mean obviously change that there's been a great change dumb. How the last couple months been for you guys. Is there and eventually got sore. You know forward and Alexei you know. We just arrived Derek you know. A little over a year ago we asked you know now making all these transitions that they like that has definitely been a whirlwind but great learning experience yet. Are you guys still in Memphis that all are you going back and forth what. That the leaders and yell that we're mad at now where a wagon. Probably hang out between Miami and LA are a little bit release are out of here. And really enjoyed the cold weather collapsed you re glad that looked great coming from Tampa. Evident in his gonna get worse that maybe if there might be snow tomorrow which is gonna. Act you act like Miami does got canceled so all of that's awful lot of I agree court yeah we at least. That's that's the worst outlook close the best part and oil was it was only a short time but what what was the best part for both the view. Of living in the city of Memphis. I mean I think are me an alleged. I mean aside from all that stuff that we get out in the community which which really I mean that was so close to my heart match. I've met some really great people you know that we're gonna continue to keep in touch it. To this state that it had been bittersweet you know it the urge the nature of the bed nets back. We did we really engage kind of settle and like we've been here as far as much longer than we have it that that was I think the best part for me that the people that. I've met and had a bill. Violation does the public and flat black light like I did out there but I think when you met early. We connect it was some great people while we were here and it happened fast you know when you have like my people would take care borrow people. I care about their community. You know US government are friendships without type of people. We definitely. Our allies says bittersweet you never wanted to end the way it ended. But at the same time look I can take away what a great pressure more at Iowa act that not just people that god is Latinos who are. Not our our rob yeah seat. The. I've written many many many putts that I joking with someone get a damn like you know we didn't let you poppy great event. Both of them are from Egypt that have the regular the last year how much. I think by your legs they're like Scott could not allowed that. We're. What did you get the dogs would would organization to the docs and for a I'm Barack our current rescue they rescue copyright it would greatly that we gave kind of you know. A all the they've wrecked it and man that we're involved one about magic is rob I believe alive let you add. The last want to Lutz rob will send animal rescue but it out from the man that animal services out but the main shelter. That has really try to question you know now that that would the other. They're like I got to really hang out with them going document centric group. Absolute we are we're talking through the fear is sales here on Jason and Jon and and that's Italy's leaned into the next question because in you guys sort tiger one of the things I respect about both of use that. You really embraced the community and doing things and it's not what that was. No fee is doing things with the police other symposiums or you with dogs. And and really most importantly I think. Statute you know one of the things that you guys really sort of champion was the removal of the Nathan bet for force that is in Jefferson Davis now that they are both down. Does it feel like a victory for for both the view that that happened. Absolutely. At stake mattresses the better place because those statutes are standing. A lot of people put an a lot of tried to get those statute down. No secret what goes statute still at four. And what the data you know. They don't work our country is that and how the person than there are right now. You know Memphis since that would not be a city arbor on multi good things that we you don't want the fact. Doctor King was assassinated here. You know that's where the conversation should start a ball how to deal. Not how we you know have these monuments out where these people gathered to. Worsen these these sick people who who really try to tell our country apart. Because they got to ask you this you were so judicious about which job visual look that there when you took does the job we all knew because you said it we could tell you roll in and we talked about here what you guys have done. Arm for the city so went in that abruptly I got asked him in his or. I heard I heard a toss or bittersweet. Any bitterness still about it any that you know the human in in in all of us I'm sisters are you at any bitterness at all still now. Honestly not towards the organization. I don't have any bitterness. At all towards organism they slower toward any people within the organization that tracks are only out on felons that everyone talks at this this is. I've Mo Weiss said it best and that's why you know I love so much as she really understands. You know what goes on what there's less of an artist goes my day today this is the nature of our business that is what changed you know I had. That sound that we talked about earlier in our relationship because the Miami things look so great gore so great not just told our city who have always go. And once we you know leave the next you know not always be partially and so she was prepared for the mentally. She's handled it album lately and you know I hold no. No partial roots towards grizzly to attract. They gave me an opportunity to take you know see if I can do it. C a popular leader semen or regulation and then. You know make some mistakes in the dark from our mistakes and they like that so. You know I'll learn a lot Chris Wallace there's askew nose guys from a front office standpoint. Up front office functions and Eddie you know salary cap and things like that he. And contracting and can't block and applied later on until my next job so I wanted to do some sort of dual job I stout. And you know obviously. The players teaching more and any. Soulful. You know a meek is about a learning experience I got to have quick. Coaching you know possible hall of famers and guys that are already established. And asking them we Balkan. Sacrifice and do things in a way that may be a little one can't war march in the ups and downs that so. You know Columbia it was fantastic experience and from that standpoint who thought we make. Well you put an perspective for some news because a we can understand it's a it's a business but about it and you mentioned the opportunity to what shall learn from it. I got to ask you know coach did they give you enough of an operative. Well I've made a source said I don't know how to use. If you do have to be of course a bias but look I don't. That's all I want to lead the things you sign it I heard there's. A trio of course filed by by. You know they got to make a decision and you know are they felt like down the decision that they didn't and they got the current. You know and they estimate that and I just respected the way that they did it. You know Chris Wallace and tomorrow I'll. He did a face to face. Would first clash you know this he had always been Whitney. And it. It also likes and I don't options you know he's given enough on my knowledge in our body yes you know as always will be no sort of you know I don't want more time but. You know it it it ended and now more on to William group focused and in the dial and a tool out of luck take this experience. And take this this time away. And combine that into becoming. A great coach has slowed us really well warmup focus through that and then on my wife tomorrow Kremlin. Yes or no touch or for you because you're with is obviously in Miami as it was very successful with LeBron and and he sort of is very careful and cautious about the jobs. That he entertained and ultimately taught him. What did you learn. You know in this year plus about being a coach's wife and an end the job. What are Iowa aren't I mean. On the railroad tracks they are both by the experience for me I mean in how bad I greatly Stanley would cost them. You know it is difficult enough to just immediate needs eighty but they just made it so easy with the transition and like I said I make a great friend of a hair. So I mean are not something I learned our priority mail thing it kidnapping is going to beat. EDS try and you've got your ups and downs that you use is you know you figure out you get through. And I actually like. Diet I I I love my experience of the here it was very different. From Miami Miami went from you know I'd bring Ben back a year originally promised as we can't just a heck consulate in championships carry your what beta and even make the play apps such. A lot of and that Miami he would laugh. We we bid try a lot of there's so honestly I think I was just very well have aired now what government throughout act out. That's where we are coarse talk until the fifth deals here on any John FM EST and is I have to ask you sort of can't come contractually obligated because. Mark has had his side play at times he's been asked about a million times here in Memphis. I'm what what can you say on that matter in that relationship just kind of once in overall for permit paean to hear from you. While well Ottawa I don't say Marcus side or anything like that light that's. I think this whole part of that has been over. Obviously. I've never won a player's reputation of the guard about. How has relationship while with the lead or how my job they're dead or he wouldn't stick you're traded or anything like that so. In ultra immediate and about happen side in this space it didn't work out. Just our business and you know. Like you said before. You know they talk about liking or disliking Ayers. There's about winning. And if they didn't feel like I'll do one job necessary. To get us to win a championship which is that's all I cared about I just wanted to win a title meant. And dictated struck out moving us in that direction which at the Arnold we will stick that out and struggle at. They're paid at the decision that makes so I don't really have a side in this honestly I this I understand that coaching. I'm not coaching to be light. Coach in tune to build. You know to build men and to build player's packet and help wanting to win a title. And you know that's all I'm focused gore and their. You know great friendships or relationship develop out of that Germany. And also let us a lot of guys I can tell you right now that. I haven't spoken to says taco so men who took the lab echoes that they are not meant never speak over again. That does how does business goals and so. Again Hamachi I'm never gonna lose that part of me. You know from that it's standpoint were I am going to have to check ships were several coaches and her. And that solid will be my focus. I'm one of those relations as we know is this how touch you where with would JB with Vickers at who's in your shoes now how hard you pulling for him is and then. How much do you what are you watch 'cause those are your guys are you watch it every day or you have an old to turn it away and kind of looked at the knicks are you relate. How you handle that. As does not leave the I have to fly ballot I try to check all that received and I just a lie. Have some perspective for JB. You know as they did. Yeah though. A lot of people are seeing here and try to you know being negative ruled against their own tree we ought to fire him but I don't have that luxury. It notes David Becker stature as my brother you know he's Smart as my mentor Bob Bender as a broaden their and that sort of grown so. We had a young group of coaches that we were quarreled it to become great coaches who don't so how come all of a sudden not shift my thinking into rooting against the grizzlies on so that doesn't work this packet. You know JB and I'll still speak all it. And but I distraught immense stride get him enough space so they can do their job to the highest level possible. That he's gonna do echo adopt I think he's got a heck of a job is just out what you don't have bike and you know wouldn't that I don't know what the record is an album now. But it just goes to show you how big factor he has that even. You know I distinct markets seem to have been continuing to be noted that go way. They've got a tough gritty win last night. And got him to be responding and trying to help each other so. In normal people who form regardless. Because they'll go mark guys on an old players mark so. You know hopefully it might get help appeared naked you know maybe go on the labor. The last thing is how soon you jump back in man you plan on being back on the sidelines somewhere next season in some capacity I'm sure you probably are. I don't know that that could be brother. And a yeah go ahead and he favors a colleague at this point they even I don't know. Well we figured it could be on any staff if you want to with the dealers. Do you know do you wanna do that are smaller and for the eight seed deal. I don't know Oca I don't know but psychedelic. I got. You know much about you Weydedat yeah we all involved it is still. Momo just try to make Charleston Amal size. Getting better and you know if something comes out where I have an opportunity BA coach again and that's the right situation and you know that be great. You know I'm not opposed to being the top assistant somewhere that was the situation that was presented you know I got a great mentor Mike Brown. Old. I don't pretty good over Golden State. And it's gonna end up getting the head coaching job for your critics are old and you know that's not a bad situation either add it up that letter Allison GP they. I'll yeah you'd well you gotta they pay pretty well true man. I let us say I'm just don't take it I don't. You know as yet not up to me you know obviously it'll probably look at what they're looking for and is still an interview to be at a summit saying this or it could see that I'm sure it is no. That's great interest they from the animal of this people plug in a long until large pool outside. Well I wanna thank both of you for coming on and and really two fer embrace in the Memphis did anyway contributions and being so active and and and and for jumping on and you and and Chad was a little bit thank you guys so much else on I can tell us thank you coach at.
