For me on the young player and an experience and so that's going to be important game you know however long it may be a month couple weeks there -- the rest of the season. Wherever it. What is the latest that you're hearing from the player reps about litigation that has begun with the NBA and have they presented to you a best case and worst case scenario for -- resolution here.

As one of the players -- has -- disappointed that you didn't get a chance actually weigh in with what your opinion would have been on that field. I understand where people are coming from I think. For me I had talked to Charlie Bell who that player up a little bit about it and now. You know I wasn't personally. Extremely offended or anything but I did. Feel like they're proud would have been better one -- A chance to vote there -- Japan.
