But first he's a presence in the paint. And he's a hero back home in the Republic of Georgia and now he's been immortalized as a Bobble head. He won the first 101000 fans with the lawyers host the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday December 20 and receive is not that the chilly at champions addiction Bobble head. Courtesy of Get verified official to get tonight and warriors to account. But Johnny west is the son of Jerry West. The logo hall of Famer as a player and a driven successful NBA executive. Johnny didn't shrink from the spotlight. Being the son of a famous father he embraced it. Here's my conversation with lawyers director of player programs. Johnny west when Johnny you're on the. Row with the warriors a lot and director of player programs so what would start with their start with the job how what. When is the director of player programs responsibilities. In and what he trying to do to help the young lawyers. My role this year his kind of grown a little bit with with Travis Lee bingo. Past couple years my main responsibilities then. The off court player development. Of our younger players say it's it's it's for everybody that the main focuses. Is there are younger guys help them get accustomed to the NBA and its huge transition going from. College athlete or international athletes are becoming an MBA players and the different responsibilities and face with that. And then also. That is some scouting both college pro. And NG leak and you know being on the road with the team. Having constant dialogue with their coaches or players and keeping a pulse of what's with the team. So give me your pulse of the team right now obviously when you hand out 78 assistant. In the two game span that's pretty good. We've I think we've we've gotten back to. To playing to the way that we. Been accustomed to playing. That the start the season is was a little. Little different with coming up three straight seasons ago in the finals. China trip. Or are pre season this was one cut short. By the by the certain pre season and then also this country so. Think we've we've gotten back to cling cling warriors. Basketball. Wait coach crew likes it. Yet such thing in the I think at some point we may go back to maybe. Six games of pre season we've I think teams are gonna find out they can I need that extra work not only for the good of the guys that. Are you know hot absolutely ST with a roster but for some the guys who are kind of on the bubble as well. It just it was tough especially such address the streets isn't going to China and then. We had. One maybe two practices over there in the new company. To me leave you lose today and come back and take two days to get him back just in its to being back in the states that. And I think it is it is important that they're there has to be some way to try and find that balance of having the right amount of pre season. It's turning. In terms of practice and how to. Manage what number of games Vincent. And that schedule. To Cuba two days to me about two weeks I just feel right yet that endless let's talk a bit about. You mentioned the scouting but that's something you did when he initially came to the organization and in two as a scout now a senior travel with the team. Are you watching other teams and other players to see how they get their players ready for the game and how those players are reacting but we we keep a tab on home on house. On on all NBA players. But more specifically the ones that. Would would possibly tree agents and you know next year in the next next two years. Younger players and and guys that we might not have seen as much. You know move the LeBron James is in the James hardens in the Chris Paul's those guys the world that we know who they are so fifth. They become available there's there's a way to. To make something happen we don't know we don't need to. We don't need to keep tabs on that but let's get a good sense of the younger players only guys who were you know either on restricted her restricted free agents. Two way guys with the with the new two year rule Simon players. That's that it's just a good way to track progress in the NBA now tonight I get to see. Probably. Over 75. Games in person. So I've seen a lot of different teams then and then we'll go out and see teams besides the games that we well. Johnny west is. Our guest on beyond the arc course member of the lawyers front office in the and your you know deal from the room always we knew his you're the son Jerry West and direct quote free. That that is the idea is to embrace you know and and what was it like growing over your deck you gets driven person. And and was it hard when you start to play basketball because of the compares. It's growing up in in LA. It had never really. Understood what it what it was. And in the things that I don't have to deal with him and I remember. And one of my first ties to a games when we moved to Memphis and I played with mark solved. And as are one of our first games like. As the high school student section was on mark was on me and that was really the first time that I felt like okay this is this is ornament I have to deal with. And then. Obviously going west Virginian and playing basketball there was was another step in and feeling when it was that was. That was kind of one of the reasons why I wanted to go there was to grow up. In college and an experience where there was. Pressure on the not so not to mess up. And I'm it helped me grow up and and gain a sense of who I was as a person and they grow in this environment where there was pressure. I knew that if you if I was able to do that then. I would. Be OK with anything that was ever become violent attitude dead two months you go into history and he initially didn't want me to go there. He won in need ago. To an Ivy League school actually. And it's it was something that I. Always wanted. That he never. He never pressured me into saying yes you need to go there no don't go there and that's kind of how he was. Bass Austin template and Terry never pressured me to play bass line I think that was by the reason why I wanted to play basketball. So he was he was great from that standpoint. He was supportive of whatever season. Experience and a limited to but for NCAA as the final four that's a plea would would would Bob Huggins like. Might soon not knowing you know but I assume his on court demeanor is it a little bit different than who he really is he Meehan Hemmer still. Closed Tuesday. He was such a huge. Mentor for me. He's really father figure to solve this guy's. It's the way he is that that people see him on TV were when he's coaching. He's that way when he's coaching. But the second of the seconds leading up to practice second practice is done that all goes out the way and he's. Extremely caring person I think that's why a lot of people see his his players are always so supportive of him there always around. Because he he truly cares about every single player that he hasn't I think that's like guys. Go through brick wall offering. Can tell you tell us while love between news players for that one scene indicated Cincinnati got curtains down of these these surfer twenty minutes. Talking to kids and making sure he's okay. On a fast for a little bit too last August your caddie and feeling make classic TVCs to overture home course. Are few and stuff courier friends. There's a big difference between. Joking Ellie golf course and and your guys than playing in something that really means something and now you're the caddie. With certain pressured you are you worried about my kids screw this up the biggest thing is. Having carried that bag. Who we'd we don't know that I'm bit. During a practice round lead yet actual. Staff bag out and it was just a couple years. Prior to the the new staff bags that things weighed down Obama's doing so. Walking on the seventeenth fairway and they hit the drive and I put my arm around and I think we gonna talk about something and he. Did not know what was coming as that you've got to switch back I can't do this for two artists that are or force him if he would pay cut but. It was it was so much fun. To see him in in a setting where he's not comfortable because it's he's. One if not the best basketball player of the world. He's so comfortable in that setting in and knows what it's like to compete at that level but he gets thrown into a completely different sport we're. Place for fun and hasn't played competitively since since high school. I magazine can count Reno's as the competitive event but. To see him perform the way he did under those. Circumstance in the pressure that he had on him because there were a lot of people saying you know it's it's a waste to give him a spot. He showed a lot of people that it it was it was then he can. If he if he wanted to he could stick at at that level fees if he could put the time to do it. Actually crazy idea he everything he does turns out really well right now it's one of those people. Before Alex you know. Have to ask what this accident tonight a mutual thing and it's always got to look that up so it's ever happened before. You're here with the lawyers and then we're thrilled that you're here and it's and your dad now has moved on the clippers. He's working there and I your brother works for the lakers I can't ever remember a time in the NBA. Three different family members were for three different teams and their own side to say division. That's crazy you've got to find two more went somewhere didn't get that back them. Waited and then we can have have a Pacific division remembering. That it's very it's fun though. Our our.

Life experience you've had me your dad this is a wealth of basketball information and life information. Negro in that household which had to be heart attacks and also special times. And then high school assignment in Memphis with a ten different backgrounds of all the people there marked a soul and it's clear Bob Huggins total file for now.

That it should. Wolf we're gonna definitely talk about it the next couple of days. Thanks Chris for the question and by the way on this road trip so many little stories wrapped around the fact that the lawyers are on their longest road trip of the season a great moment in Miami. As Klay Thompson met for the very first time. The coach who was responsible. For his father being in the NBA. Coach Jay Caldwell ghost of Michael Thompson at Miami's Jackson high school and he discovered him in Nassau over 45 years ago. It was a great moment the tops the family and I sat down with Jacque during warm ups in Miami what does what does this daylight. For you what we wouldn't have experienced team going through today. Big date. Big day. Don't know on the on the games since these guys coach and and this is that he took him. We. A couple of that hosted. See the son of a couple deaths could have coached little. Have a luncheon this time with a man. Is. You know. About tonight in the person and let the total time. You know those guys it. Over the years. Coaching in place I don't know I just had enough of ground. We're being in. Did. The expertise and didn't read. They backs and on that but. I'll come out what do you think did you have a. Chance you have until quite yes. And with the Palestinian Michael and how much different is played. Then Michael at this age. Well yeah it's it's. It was mine was. All the players go right. You know he was so yeah it was definitely a great great big men and one of the big great big animals and it's. You know. Honestly. As a as a professional he was not as great but. But he was very good and they are the teams and clay is and I know he's quieter yet but lately is this. Is. Okay. Oh. That professional women than and Michael who's my. My blade to would Portland and he didn't play well let's own it. What's the lakers and that's when he was most notable relentless. Absolutely I mean listening very very good college player doesn't ask how did you find it. It wasn't like you it. Yeah we. I accidentally bumped into it hit him I mean. It was any any any plans thing. Anything of that nature to suspect it. I happen to be in the Bahamas and visiting with the baseball team mate of mine and one of my players. Was there and he was showing me around. When it's. So we went to look forward this he would. So he would name to host. Sold. Chemicals which we ended up it throughput given houses and we ended up. And Michael's house and its future as house. And we want it wasn't Michael wasn't extremely sneaky he would he would play basketball and these the other coast. In. It is evident Erica that France was lifted. So than them over 2. Uncles who I am a student visas Obama. From that point and tacitly we don't we'll teaching. And that's dispute. It was ought to let them. DeVine but the battle and get them it's just. Because. You know this thing you know it. He is accidentally found. You know and because we've made a lot of progress so. That one. You. Rest is history it. I would imagine that. One thing that links the two of them has to be dry. As we've seen playing a lot better for me in the time he walked into the lawyers him in and what you say Michael had a ways to go as well. Oh yeah. The outlook. What do they play as Mike Mike's. You know my ex wife put an uptrend school's fiftieth and you know Mike didn't have anybody put in the time we do so he was the youngsters. That was not exposed to a whole body and clay. And my ankle in the buckled and and all of those kids. You know boulder around with the and then mothers. This age though he has a distinct advantage that Michael didn't. Play as. No question about it he has these he has made progress you can see it. It is. Deftly done some things up his game. And a groom him when he went to college he was definitely. He doesn't leave a lot of work. And he's done it with. He feared. June 30 quality. Notables here guys in the Olympic. No question I think he's a great doing lines.

Work on the project they wanna work out. I think Grassley I isn't going good and it is time to agent you know when you look over and it's fourth quarter with two minutes left in a crazy game you won't see he's scrambling to switch up my lead and get a deadline story and by about five minutes after the buzzer. It really allows me to sit back after game analyze the game maybe even though look back babies are partly government back and look at this past them. Who's off really was this turnovers and I really talented big games digging in deeper stories right Pavia 4000 word feature at some point that would take up an entire sports section these days that.

Basically here's our guest here beyond the arc he writes for the athletic with so how was the event at Harvard and what did you learn about three month and maybe did know there. He don't know if I have made in there anything new he said he was nervous the first time I've ever heard him saying he was there was actually tucked in the day before Mossad. Nervous on good speaking and then he got up there and you know you're at Harvard you know you're not. World famous business school. I you can tell like. It was you can hear is voice some nerves early on but you know him once he gets about thirty seconds into 17 minute answer that he's going on he really starts this. Getting don't eat. He insists.

Yet China in particular was stunning to me is that your life while we are really like completely across the rose the first time I've been there it's like I'm. A very foreign to a lot of stuff there. Yet like these people who are around every day are lying if I walked out I just ran in the haven't you lock up the plane saying I nexus death. And night you know. Somebody walking on their soil that it's you know in this it was a dot that was walking behind their missing. I remember outside their hotel we got there that night to the Ritz Carlton in Shanghai in. There was a bunch of people camp out like errors and a lot of hotels across the country and I was like I you know you expected this week we knew what was coming. But then I got. I was there at 2:30 AM the night later in there was still about any of us there were sleeping there for three days just just for the second glimpse of a guy get off the bus that a guy walks and no itself. And then there awaits the next guide and you know you get seventeen glances over three days and that's a great three days those. Arab might see that what what you're in the middle line you know that that it's not just a basketball team is really more of an event. Before we get to the team real quickly what your favorite quote again the last few years. Now on there's some obviously some great great moments. Steve Kurt really you know he delivers. You know. Good kind of quit after your quiver of trying to figure wanna vigorous and that you do you have once why I think of one line I I have a a couple I I've I think the the other speaker when when he came out and and now let everybody tweet the other day volume is like shuffling cards I thought that was pretty funny that that that was pretty cool. These guys are ready to tweet armament and coach. What we're gonna start. All marine. And not Jordan bell and this exposure to tweeting all. We'll resume human contact.

It gets ready for eye to eye contact again and human connection. You know that started in Denver where in. He said he was there right you dollars and news dressings and he's gonna go right to the phone Newsnight OK out clause where you and the next time you start to come out drop tenacity. I guess the magic eight ball yet. Kurt Kurt. Heard your name on deliver these night. Long gray. Quotes Stecker is pretty good look at a quick here wants ally and long. On though about. You know I help you didn't judge me on my personal and against either. You know he had that wants from last year's night you know take off the ET on asset. Those are party does a very sweet able quote this is good. Now let's get to the team right now and that they did on this road trip I think we've seen this team kind of head back to where they used to be yes. It's funny I think the Florida sun helped them I don't think it's a ridiculous thing to say. I think they needed. A reef rest you know kind of way from there. You know we've mentioned how monitor on the season is you on the launch of the Florida for years avenue Ian Wright in a December when it's cold everywhere else in the Bay Area. It's an eight degrees. He gets them back performances that proceeded you know how this team response to a couple that forms and the coach Kirk who's been very critical of him this year more than in years past. And he bit he very much less after they won LA and they came out Chris that 46 this this game Orlando. And and I think it very much appreciate her. Gifting them an off day Miami and saying you know what let's come out for him. Play well we'll see if it continues because I do think it's going to be seize on this here where we're like oh they look like. Who we know they are and it's like well they know they are that against and that kind of thing if put up against even more so than in years gone by I've eighteen there are coming out of harder. And I think teams are. Also league wide. Figuring out how to guard smaller units from any better than what they did four years ago. Yeah I mean you get this book Hamptons five death library on a caught you at some numbers it. I mean it looked at death Bynum when it originated with these unbelievable matches a couple of years ago in the semi regular season you know. You're not really duplicate those plus one point 270 Norman some might yet. But that line if you would think it's always going to be a meg plus as it was last year I mean it was there go to sledgehammer and and a passed this here's a minus. I think some of that is that lackadaisical play some messy when dollars really kind of strong as profits of weapon the more experienced on. A but also it's it's what you mentioned this is more if things go home Ortiz Jack on three's. The pace in the league team from four years ago it's just skyrocketed. Words like by the sixth or seventh place big I mean they're not the vast team. They are still the most dangerous mob all you put.
