see you next time at "listening post". >> you're watching al jazeera america live from new york city. i'm jonathan betz, here are the top stories. pakistan condemns the u.s. drone strike that killed the leader of the taliban. one politician threatening to cut off nato supply routs. tee t terminal three has reopened. two french journalists are abducted and killed by gunmen in northern mali, the same area where government helped defeat rebel fighters months ago.
>> pakistan's government demanded a meeting with the u.s. amdas door in response to the drone attack that killed hakimullah mehsud, the leader of the pakistani taliban. they are accusing the u.s. of interfering with peace talks. >> the efforts have been ambushed. it will - it was not acquired from the front, it was an ambush. we see it as an ambush. >> the chief minister of the province is standing here with me. they have decided that god willing the assembly will pass a unanimous declaration not to allow native supply to -- nato supply to enter the province until the drone attacks are stopped. >> rosa lined joins us.
what are pakistani leaders accusing the government of. >> there's two things the pakistani government is accusing the u.s. of doing. one is violating authority, launching an attack on pakistan soil without islamabad's permission. the other thing they are accused of doing is scuttling - that's the pakistani's word, an effort to broker peace talks with the taliban. the pakistanis argue with the death of hakimullah mehsud basically everything that islamabad wanted to try to achieve has been put back to square one. it says as a result the pakistani citizens will be at a higher risk, suffering from taliban attacks within their borders. >> hasn't the pakistani government been cooperating with the u.s. and the c.i.a. drone program all alone. >> it's widely assumed that the pakistani government has been
cooperating first with the bush administration and now the obama administration on the drone strike program. it's been the obama administration that has increased the frequency of the attacks. some argue out of a sense that the pakistanis have not done enough to crackdown on taliban and al qaeda activities in its border. there was a front page story in the "the washington post" outlining the detail not just how much access the pakistan government was tacitly giving to washington, but the pakistanis were getting top-level intelligence briefings about the targets and strategies used when launching the attacks. >> pakistani citizens don't like the attacks. it's not surprising you see an objection from the highest levels in the islamabad
government because they have to basically find a way to placate their citizens. >> if it's killing a person who terror iffed so many pakistanis, why the call for accountability. >> you have to remember nawaz sharif who used to be the prime minister was re-elected as the prime minister. he's not been on the job for six months. it's essential for him staying in power to say to pakistani citizens - i hear your concerns and fears, and i'm trying to do my best to stand up to washington to prevent the source of attacks from happening. in fact, there was a family which travelled from pakistan to washington to atone members of congress, the impact that one such drone strike had on their family. they weren't the targets but lost their grandmother in what can be described as collateral damage. it's the sort of thing that terrified people, making them
feel they can't trust wabz -- washington, which says it's a close ally of pakistan. >> have we heard from the white house today? >> we have not heard from the white house, but from a senior administration official who is telling al jazeera that while the administration can't confirm that hakimullah mehsud was killed on friday in the drone strike, or that khan said has become the new head of the pakistani taliban, the official goes on to say in the u.s.'s view the pakistani taliban is an enemy of the united states. it will be working with the pakistani government to bring it to heel. >> rosalin jordan in washington, thank you. >> hakimullah mehsud's death has pakistan officials concerned over peace talks. >> this is seen as a major blow to the taliban pakistan, which may have a struggle for power,
succession, and a serious blow for the government of pakistan which was at preliminary talks, a delegation supposed to observe on saturday to hold talks with the pakistan-taliban. peace prospects are out of the question. the big blow is seen to be delivered to the taliban-pakistan. they will not be able to recover soon. it will be interesting to see if they go for punitive reprisal attacks. the government of pakistan asked security forces to be on red alet. >> to talk about this, christopher swift, a professor from george town university joined us to explain the implications of the drone strike. >> a number of things going on. the first is the pakistani
population is opposed to the strikes, mainly because of concerns about civilian casualties. the pakistani government is making noise about the strike of the there has been a lot of controversy within pakistan about numbers they released concerning civilian casualties. there's a concern of domestic security in pakistan. signs 2007. the group known as the pakistani taliban has been terrorizing people all the way from the north-west to swat valley and urban areas as well. >> there's an internal political issue, a broader concern in the population. >> why do you think this happened now, especially since the figure was well-known, has done media interviews. why do you think the u.s. decided to strike now? >> with the the simple answer is they found him.
he's been in u.s. sites for a while. a more complicated answer is the pakistanis might have wanted him out of circulation. by taking him out of circulation you avenge the deaths of civilians he's killed in pakistan for the last five years or more, but you put the pakistani taliban where it's weaker going into the negotiating table and you negotiate under force, which is the most effective way to proceed. >> we know the taliban was supposed to commence peace talks with the pakistani government. what does this mean for that? >> i think it's likely you'll see a symbolic movement on both sides towards some kind of negotiation. the difficulty is it's not clear how much control the leader has over various factions, which are tribal based. it's not clear how much the
pakistani government's rhetoric about peace negotiations is a step forward or whether it's articulate during the election campaign. >> los angeles international airport has completely reopened a day after a tsa employee was killed in terminal 3. the shooting put lax on lockdown, disrupting travel plans for more than 160,000. brian rooney joins us live from lax. authorities say everything is back up and running. are passengers still seeing delays? >> it's very busy here at los angeles international. a lot of people had to be rerouted. there's a clog, but all the terminals are open, including terminal 3 where the shooting was. they are sorting out the aftermath, not to speak of the luggage. >> piles of luggage were evidence of travel chaos.
the airlines were reuniting passengers with their bags. amanda schroder was still wearing the clothes she travelled with. >> they had so much luggage, they didn't have time to scan it. >> family and friends mourn the lose of 39-year-old hernz r the first -- gerardo i. hernandez, the first tsa agent to die undertaining k his duty. >> he was a great guy, he was proud of his son that played football, how big his son was, and his daughter. >> the man police say was the shooter, 23-year-old paul ciancia from pennsville new jersey is in critical continue in a los angeles hospital. a law enforcement official saying paul ciancia had a note in his bag saying he wanted to kill tsa employees. >> his family called police in
los angeles looking for help after receiving a message from their son saying he was going to hurt himself. >> we followed up doing a wellbeing check. he was not home. lapd advised me they'd contact us as soon as they made contact to alert the family that he was okay. i discovered from the ap that paul was the suspect. >> jonathan, we expect to hear from the federal bureau of investigation in less than an hour. they've been sparing with details over the last 24 hours. we don't know what they'll say. obviously they are investigating the background of the shooter and why this happened. >> do we have any idea of what may have motivated him to go inside the airport and inflict damage? >> he left a note in his bag talking about killing tsa agents. i think there are hints, certainly in texts that he sent
to his family that there may be mental illness at work. >> brian rooney live at lax. there's a 7 o'clock eastern press conference. we'll have that live. >> turning overseas to mali where two french journalists are dead hours after being kidnapped. france's foreign ministry confirmed finding the bodies of ghislaine dupont, and claud verlon. both there on assignment for radio france internationale. they were captured in the north-east. a reejan rebels want to make independent. >> today politicians and activists are meeting to find ways to stablilize northern mali. al jazeera is the first outlet to meet with rebels. we have this exclusive report from northern mali. >> it's a long and buxy ride deep -- bumpy ride deep into the desert to reach the rebels.
finally here is the first sign of their existence in the area. it's like a morning ritual. soon they gather to show their might. these are the fighters of the arab movement. they are one of three groups wageing an armed rebellion. >> translation: we have taken up arms because of the wrong that colonialism did to us >> last june 3rd groups signed a resolution leading to a general election. it has never estuated and fighting re -- eventuated. and fighting continued. we are not war monningers but we decided to defend ourselves. rights are a broad autonomy. if we are not granted it, we'll fight to the last bullet. we'll fight to the last bullet.
>> even though they call themselves the arab movement, the fighters say their goal is to seek political autonomy for all components and work in full cooperation with other groups. an issue bothering them is an accusation that they are criminals and religious fighters. some youths joined radical groups and have been involved in trafficking. for this commander the arab commanders have other grievances. >> translation: no single child has a high school degree. we get expelled to refugee camps. we have suffered long enough. the world should come to our rescue. we are the rightful people of the land. we should return to it. foreigners should leave. >> the arab rebels put aside
rivalries, announcing a withdrawal from the police talks, reversing a decision under international pressure. now they say their patience with the mali government is running out. there'll be a speedy response to their demands, or a return to civil war. >> we have a rare occurrence happening tomorrow morning. this is what it will look like from space when you get an eclipse. there's the shadow cast by the moon. that's happening tomorrow, a hybrid solar eclips. the greatest eclips will be off the coast of africa. the east coast and north america has a chance to see it after sunrise. it's visible at sunrise, right along the east coast. the sun comes up an hour earlier, so it will be about
6:30. satellite shows it. look in the eastern sky. be careful. you want to view it with caution. sun comes up at 6:30. it will be clear but cold. it will be a partial eclipse about 15 minutes past sunrise. you can make a pinhole viewer. could be a nice view for everyone on the bridge getting ready for the new york marathon. don't take up the cold weather. cold temperatures across the north-east. we'll look at that with the forecast later. >> healthcare.gov is going offline for maintenance tonight. that's the website you sign up for insurance under the health care law. it will be down at 9 o'clock eastern immediately sunday morning at nine. people can sign up for insurance over the phone. >> president obama is putting
support behind the marriage equality build in hawaii. they didn't prove a measure on wednesday. state house was supposed to vote friday. 4,000 turned out to testify, delaying the decision. if passed hawaii will be the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage. >> still ahead - protesters taking to the streets of egypt angry about a comic pulled from the air. >> cyber bullying - more on the national campaign that hopes it reduce it. that's ahead.
quality. the show will remain off the air until the dispute is settled. >> on the set bassem yousseff is talking to a vendor selling cakes and chocolate decorated with pictures of abdul fatah al-sisi. bassem yousseff asked if he has any of the interim president. bassem yousseff says he'll buy half a kilo. >> what, you don't like cc >> bassem yousseff replied - i'll buy the lot. it's sat irist fodder, but landed him in trouble. >> translation: the channels broadcasters decided to suspended program. >> the comedian is yet to respond. one of his production staff said there was nothing defamatory in the effort. it's not the first time bassem yousseff upset the authorities.
he ended up in court in march for ridiculing mohamed morsi, president at the time. charges were dismissed, but the state commissioner called for this decision to be overturned. one of egypt's prominent news presenters was taken off the air, hinting that mohamed morsi's removal was a coup. she sees the banning of bassem yousseff's program as a sign that free speech is disappearing. >> what a blow to freedom of expression, free speech in egypt. that we have reverted back to january 2011, the red lines are back. obviously the red line now is the military. it's untouchable. >> a free press is virtually non-existent. few working for the private or state media are willing or allowed to criticise the government or substantiate. >> the foreign press is
instructed to call the administration to say they'll be working each day. press freedoms are disappearing. >> in egypt we can't say there is a complete freedom of expression. freedom of speech. i don't think so. because in egypt now, i described the media. if you remember the era during the "'50s of the lasting century. only people have to be classified as against or pro of what happened last july. >> in his tweets over the summer bassem yousseff said he was glad about the military coup. if he was hoping for a positive reaction for his satirical barbs, he was known he was
mistaken. >> the case of rebecca sed wick a 12-year-old after being bullied online gained attention. the florida department of juvenile justice and the anti-defamation league are working to stake a successful anti-bullying campaign worldwide. >> i have been called a boy because i had short hair. >> sara recalled how bullies teased her. >> it'd been going around school that i should change my sex since i like having my hair short. >> i was bullied in fourth grade, because of my height. >> bullying is a major issue. not just in florida. >> now students from miami beach high participate in the no place for hate workshop. an anti-defamation league initiative aimed at preventing bullying behaviour. >> tough guy, huh. >> regardless what, you know,
backgrounds or race or gender, we have different problems, and they shouldn't overcome who we are. showing them that everyone has problems - i think it's better for them to work the problems through. >> the no place for hate program was implemented in south florida schools to promote zero tolerance for bullyingful. >> making sure that bullying is stopped and addressing the issues before they escalate to serious issues like suicide and violence. >> as in the case of rebecca sedgwick, a 12-year-old who climbed a concrete tower and jumped to her death. an investigation led authorities to file charms against two -- charges against two girls, 12 and 14, for terrorizing sedge wick. through online message boards and text. the anti-defamation league plans to expand their no place to hate program to schools in northern
and central florida. by teaching kids to step in when they witness others being bullied is the best way to diffuse a situation. >> it could be non-verbal language, putting your arm around someone saying, "come with me." teens who reach out to teens can foster a bias free environment. >> big day in boston, a lot to celebrate. darren haynes is here with the sports. >> after the red sox won its third series title in 10 years, today's parade held a different region - a time where trag di became triumph in boston. for the first time thousands of fans lined the city. parades started at fenway park

a welcome back to al jazeera america. here is a look at your top stories. . things are returning to normal at los angeles international airport, one day after a tsa officer was shot and killed inside terminal 3. shootings delayed dozens of flights and effected more than 168,000 passengers. >> protesters in cairo stand behind a comic pulled off the air. bassem yousseff is known as egypt's jon stewart, suspended a week after making antimilitary remarks. it is said that he violated editorial policy. others say he's boning censored. >> a drone strike may affect peace talks. hakimullah mehsud was killed in a drone strike. >> the pakistani taliban named
khan said as a new leader. he is promising revenge. >> this is the pakistani taliban's new leader, khan said, who is also known as sagener. he's in his mid 30s. he was appointed by a council of senior taliban commanders, securing 43 out of 80 votes. some faction, made up of 30 groups, are pushing for other candidates to take the top job. khan said is well-known. he is thought to have planned an attack on a gaol in north-west pakistan, freeing 400 prisoners, as well as an attack on an air force base. khan said was a trusted lieutenant, killed in an unmanned u.s. aerial drone strike. >> pakistan's interior minister strongly condemned the c.i.a.-led strike, saying the
attack harmed the peace process getting underway between the government and the taliban, and u.s. pakistan collaborations would be reviewed. pakistanis are angry at what the c.i.a. did. >> translation: americans have no right to cause this type of destruction in our country through these attacks. i believe this was totally criminal. >> the person killed in the american drone attack was a muslim. he was our brother. this should not have happened. there should be no drone attacks in the first place. >> it makes the process of dialogue difficult. the taliban will not be ready for peace talks. dialogue can only take place when there's peace on both sides. >> the pakistani government, military and intelligence agencies will be pleased with hakimullah mehsud's death. he was able to carry out several maiming or attacks against the
state, which claimed thousands of lies. >> there are a few details about the pakistani taliban's leader. some suggest that khan said is the most moderate of contenders for the top job. his election, they insist means the peace pros started by the government could go through. with the pakistani taliban vowing to avenge the death of the former leader, it's all but certain there'll be more violence ahead of any talks. >> germany and brazil are appingry over -- angry over spying operations. the move follows allegations thest spied on the leaders of both countries. the illegal collection of personal data is a highly intrusive act. >> with us is david rowed a
pullser winning journalist, critical of president obama's counterterrorism moves. david, an interesting claim, the fear of al-qaeda is worse than al qaeda itself. what do you mean by that? >> at this point after years of decimating al qaeda, and we can talk about the drone strikes, they have eliminated leaders. the n.s.a. is out of control, angering germany and other countries, and the drone strikes - there needs to be some, it is excessive. the biggest theme is excessive surveillance and drone strikes. there's an al qaeda threat, but we are overreacting and hurting ourselves. >> how do we hurt ourselves when the administration argues we haven't had a widescale attack since september 11th. it must be working. >> there's a variety of reasons
it's working i am not sure it is because we are tapping angela merkel's phone in jeremy or tens of millions of calls across europe. there's a danger. >> the drone strikes. >> they are alienating the opinion towards the u.s. around the world. that hurts us and the counterterrorism effort. >> does it help us. this recent drone strike this weekend, where a pakistan taliban leader who has been responsible for the death of pakistanis were taken out. is it wiser to allow the piece talks to go further. they are radical, they work with al qaeda. it would have been better for pakistanis to see there couldn't have been a peace agreement. there's a sense that it's the united states that stopped a peace process that the taliban
might have agreed to. there were talks twice before with the pakistani taliban, it went nowhere. the timing was unfortunate. >> most americans hear about the drone strikes and n.s.a. scandals. a lot of people shrug. what are they missing? >> they are missing they doan see the consequences of this in their own lives. there's no drone strikes in the united states. that's an example. one of the things changing in the us, is the tsa started a process of looking at people before they fly. they are going through government and private databases. they are looking at private information to decide whether you should be allowed to board your plane. as that comes home they'll ask the question about the level of surveillance. >> a lot of people say, "hey, the expanded prescreening may screen out terrorists", and i
haven't done anything wrong. >> the story was profiled by the new york times, a young man went to libya to visit his family, he's on a tsa watch list. every time he flies he is searched. this targetting - the tron strikes -- drone strikes, which are secret. we won't publicly discuss drone strikes, it helps al qaeda recruit. when we have targetting in the u.s., i think it backfires. >> you said there were simple things that could be done when it comes to the drone strikes, like moving the responsibility of the program to a different agency. that could make a decision. >> richard holbrook pushed for a shift. when there's a drone strike and civilians are killed, there's military law. strict procedures that look at was a civilian killed. if it happens, there's
compensation and an apology. these don't have to be secret drone strikes, saying, "this is what we tarted. if there was a mistake admitting it, it will help the u.s. effort. >> transparency you think will paying a difference. what is the n.s.a. doing. americans should know, people abrode. who are we striking in the drone strikes. americans should know and people overseas. >> a lot of people don't know the scale of the programs. >> thank you for being in. we appreciate it. >> in france, protest in favour of jobs and against taxes continued into the evening. more than 10,000 fill the streets of kampala. facing police using tear gas. government promised tax increases of $4 billion to reduce the deficit. >> several thousands here in
brittany in north-west france are furious about the ecotax that the president, francis hollande, wants to introduce. he's already backtracked slightly. he says he'll suspend it for more talks. the people here want it scrapped altogether. they say it will jeopardise their livelihoods. brittany has been hit hard by factory closures, mainly in the food processing business. they say they are buying undercut by cheap labour elsewhere in the european union and are particularly angry about germany who is undercutting then. the economy generally has taken a knock. the focus of the protest has been on the ecotax. a week ago there were violent clashes with the police, rubber bullets were fired, tear gas was fired, protesters hurled missiles at the police, there
were several injuries, a couple of days later, francis hollande, the president backtracked and suspended. the protesters feel they have the initiative, they want him to go further and want the tax scrapped. they have been promised state aid. they are not happy. their speech made here before a big march are voicing that anger. >> in yemen girls as young as eight are forced into marriage with older men. activists want the practice banned and a minimum age established for marriage. change will not come easily. >> when nora was 11 years old, she was forced to marry a man who was 35. >> she suffered years of physical and psychological abuse. she's a leading activist today, fighting to ban child marriages.
>> i was an incident child. i was poor. when they got me new clothes i felt happiness, everything changed. my husband was an alcoholic. when he took off his clothes, you can imagine what happened to a child. >> nora fled her husband men times, only to be turned back by her parents. she suffered misearns and internal blading. a traumatic -- bleeding. a traumatising experience affecting her and her three children. she has been taking anti-depressants for years. >> because of all i have gone through i feel scared when i think about my daughter. i don't want her to marry. i want her to continue her studies, my daughter has not been able to forget the beatings i suffered for years. after a long legal battle nora has been granted a divorce. her terrible experience and determination to ban child marriages seems to have finally
paid off. members of the organization drafting yemen's constitution say the charter will set the minimum age for marriage at 18. but some claret and tribal leaders say they'll block the motion as the country transitions to elections expected next year. >> we don't have problems related to child marriage. most of the cases are fabricated so foreign institutions impose their institutions on yemen. >> a wedding in the capital. a relative of the bride pays tribute to her and her tribe. then a poet praising the groom. weddings in yemen are not always this happy. >> this is a country where marrying of young girls to older men is a common practice. we may not know the number of child brides because yemen is a
conservative society. anyone that speaks out against marriage may be rejected by their family. here in the old town a storyteller praises yemen's past. it's the presence that will shape the country's future. a future where underage marriage will finally be considered a crime. >> a final salute for an american space hero. family friends and dignitaries said goodbye to astro naut scoti carpenter. we have more on the life of the second american to orbit earth. >> scoti carpenter played an important role in the space race in the "60, when the united states was locked into a race to get to the mon against the soviet union. scoti carpenter was the fourth american to travel into space. this is st. john's church in his town of boulder colorado.
a family member told me that scoti carpenter not only was a church member, but an altar boy many years ago. scoti carpenter was among the mercury astronauts, the mercury 7 to be the first astronauts to fly into space. he was the fourth man to travel into space, orbiting the earth three times, going up behind john glen. they game good friends. they were neighbours during the early days of the nasa space program. john glenn is here, among the astronauts here from nasa as pol bearers for scoti carpenter. you may know scoti carpenter's voice better than his face. he was the man behind the nasa mike in february 1962 who uttered the famous words "god speed john glenn", sending his friend soaring into the sky,
february 1962. john glenn is here to give the eulogy. with scoti carpenter's passing john glenn is the sole survivor of the original mercury 7 astronauts. >> it is another college football saturday. there were key nca match ups. darren hays will have that and more in sports. >> why honey bees are dying in canada and the devastating impact it could have on our food.
pesticide. many factories insist it's safe. >> this area is a paradise for bees. the natural vegetation and plant diversity. >> a third generation bee keeper this man is known for the quality of the honey bees he raises to sell to other beekeepers. he's finding far too many of his carefully nurtured charges devastating and dying. >> bees sitting on plant leaves, hundreds of bees, running around in the grass, not coming home. twitching, spasming in front of the hive. it's a good personnel of the colony -- percentage of the colony disagree. >> bee keepers across canada report similar losses - dead bees, moulding hives. many blame a nicotine-based pesticide. scientists found honey bees
evolved as social animals protecting each other from disease. >> what concerns me is an industry is becoming more and more expensive to keep honey bees that rely reach a threshold where it will not be worth it for a bee keeper to retain a colony, to see 40% die. >> bees do more than make honey, they polinate crops, ensuring plentiful harvests. whatever the reason for honey bee deaths, consequences are worrying scientists. >> if we lose bees we lose a significant part of our food supply. that is it. without bees we don't get fruit or a lot of animals dependent on pollination. >> europe panned nicotine-based
pesticides. there are calls for canada to do the same until more research is done. >> these bee colonies look healthy, but bee keepers are wondering about the future of the industry. economically small, but vitally important in pollinating many crops we rely on. . all right, college football. darren is here, interesting rivalry games. >> that is true. before last year's ohio state michigan game the coach said records don't matter, it's a rivalry. >> what about ohio versus the buck guys. they struggled against the boilermakers losing two out of four games. irving myer is 20 and 0, not losing a game in 345 months.
things go down him. look at this. danny ebling's pass intercepted. the buck guys up 7-0. look at the second play. braxton miller to jeff hireman. defense is mia. 40 yard touch done. 233 passing yard. 56-0 ball game, ohio state extends their winning streak. >> number 14 game hosting mississippi state. connor shaw dips one. then connor shaw sharing the highlight love with derel for a 4-yard strike. four passes for shaw. a record with 16 straight home victories. big 10 action, penn state and illinois looked to get on track after losing last week.
penn state kicker sam from 35 yards out. game tide at 17. we go to ore time. christian hakenberg on third and long. call carter comes up big with a tv catch of the year. 34-17 up. it's illinois's turn. nathan chill house's pass - chipped and intercepted. holds off to win 24-17 >> wisconsin and iowa looking to break their records. whiches con since down six, with rock to petersen. 44 yard touch down, badgers up 7-6. there's more. stavi again. pitching to jarrod. joe stavi, 114 passing records. badgers win 28-9. >> after the red sox won its
third world series today's parade held a different meaning to the previous two, a time where tragedy became triumph. with thousands of fans lining the streets of the parade starting from the green mother to fenway park, ending at the charles river. it ended at a touching moment at the boston marathon finish line. three were killed and many injured. the 25 boats carrying the players stopped at the blue and jelio finish line where a player placed the world series trophy. the red sox defeated st louis cardinals in six games, winning their eighth world series. >> as part of our basketball preview week, we focus on a team that made a splash with key veterans and a future hall of fame guard as a head coach. >> there's a new sheriff in black line, it's jason kidd.
the 10-time all star rejoins the team as the nets new head coach. >> it's a learning process. one as a coach. two, media availability is over the top. but, you know, it's part of the game, and it's something. >> jason is a winner and leader with a wealth of basketball knowledge and experience, which makes the move a natural transition. >> i can talk was a player and coach. i'm trying to get on to the coach's side. the more i spent time with coaches i'm thinking of their language. >> despite taking the head coaching job nine days after retiring as a player, his former competition and team likes to move. >> he'll be a player' coach. he just retired. he'll be understanding, a guy
who everybody - the whole team will look up to. >> look at his resume. a second all of time in the nba - a 2-type of olympic gold medallist and an nba champion. >> he's a winner. he's won before. he's a great leader. i play with him a couple of years in the olympics and saw him first hand. never forgot it. >> what jason brought to m game over time, everyone understands he's a great player. he has one of the best iqs that we have seen as a basketball player. he's well respected. >> as a trainer i settle my nerves. basketball is something that you can never control. it's something that you don't know how it's going to turn out. >> he is surrounded by a
