    It’s NBA rumor season, which means it’s also Kyrie Irving rumor season. For the past few years, he’s been a mainstay of reports, leaks and speculation about his future.

    There were plenty like that noise before making his way out of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017. Ditto for his time with the Boston Celtics, a team whose fanbase received the following promise:

    Boston Celtics @celtic

    “If you want me back, I plan to re-sign here.” – @KyrieIrving https://t.co/0wDLzuv5WL

    And now, after appearing in just 103 games in three seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, Irving could bounce back again.

    Here’s a look at how much stock to put in with the latest rumors about his future.

1 out of 5

    The spirit of discontent seemed to be in the air long before this, but it was stirred up by a report from Shams Charania from Athletic and the Stadium on Monday.

    “Multiple sources tell The Athletic that conversations about Irving’s future have stalled between him and the Nets,” Charania wrote. “There is currently an impasse between the parties that clears the way for the seven-time All-Star to consider the open market, these sources said.”

    Should he decline his player option and enter unrestricted free agency, Charania reported that the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks would be interested.

    On Wednesday, three seasoned journalists joined the mix.

    ESPN Brian Windhorst felt that the standoff could involve “saber rattling”. The idea of ​​Irving taking a $25-30 million pay cut next season to play for one of the aforementioned teams is hard to take seriously.

    Mark Stein added that Irving “has had recent contact with Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, his former Cleveland teammate, to likely discuss a potential reunion in Hollywood,” but he also expressed skepticism about the implementation of such a decision.

    “The expectation persists league-wide that the Nets will enter into some sort of new contract with Irving,” Stein wrote.

    But that hasn’t alleviated any worries for the Nets, who could lose two stars if they can’t appease Kyrie.

    “Kyrie Irving’s search to leverage his contract talks with the Brooklyn Nets won’t result in the threat of a $30 million pay cut to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, but the sum of the fears the depths of the franchise,” ESPN said. Adrian Wojnarowski wrote. “Irving is walking, and Kevin Durant wants a trade.”

    If that happens, Brooklyn could end up with Ben Simmons, everything he gets back in a Durant trade (and a possible Irving sign and trade) and a whole bunch of questions just three years into this KD-Irving era. .

    In terms of individual numbers, Kyrie Irving has enjoyed immense success in the five years since he left LeBron James to play for the Celtics. He averaged 25.5 points, 6.0 assists and 2.8 threes while shooting 40.5% from deep and posting a well-above-average 60.2 true shooting percentage and a 6.2 plus/minus box (11th in the NBA during this period).

    Playoff success is a different story, however. After playing 52 playoff games in his three years with LeBron, Kyrie has only played 22 since leaving Cleveland. This season, his former Celtics teammates swept him out of the first round.

    With half a decade of evidence to sift through, it’s safe to say that Irving was best served in the slightly smaller role he played as the Cavalier.

    Its percentage of use during these last three years in Cleveland was not much lower than it has been in Boston and Brooklyn, but LeBron was clearly the main playmaker and leader of the team. If Irving had been more willing to accept that, the last five years could have turned out very differently.

    In 2019 Kyrie admitted to call LeBron to apologize for his reaction to his former teammate’s leadership. In a more recent podcast appearance, he expressed regret for his lack of communication.

    “I didn’t know how to share my emotions,” Kyrie said on I am an athlete. “I didn’t know how to do that. So instead of sharing, I isolated myself.”

    If they had been on the same page, Irving thinks they “definitely, definitely would have won more championships.”

    Five years after their split, Irving can now realize he’s done pretty well with one of the greatest players of all time. And although LeBron is now 37, his four-year averages of 27.0 points and 8.2 assists with the Lakers suggest he might have enough in the tank for one more run at a title.

    He probably wouldn’t have to burn so many if he had a motivated Irving by his side.

    Verdict: Buy

3 out of 5

    The answer here may not be so simple. After all, it was Irving who did the rejection, and LeBron has since won a title with the Lakers.

    But things came to a head for the Lakers after that 2020 championship run. After a first-round exit in 2021, they traded for Russell Westbrook and missed the playoffs entirely last season.

    If the choice comes down to something as simple as “Russ or Kyrie,” LeBron should prefer the latter route, even with all of Irving’s potential baggage and availability issues.

    In 2021-22, LA was minus-1.1 points per 100 possessions when James and Westbrook shared the floor. During their three seasons together in Cleveland, LeBron and Kyrie had a plus-10.4 clean note.

    There’s more to these numbers than just “who’s LeBron’s number 2?” The rest of the supporting casts with the Cavs matched better, but so did him and Kyrie.

    Westbrook has spent more than a decade dominating most possessions for his teams. Expecting him to suddenly turn it off at the age of 33 was unrealistic, especially for someone with a notoriously unreliable outside shot.

    Kyrie also needs the ball, but his range as a shooter makes him a better co-star for LeBron. Balancing their away games with the dominance of a hopefully healthy Anthony Davis on the inside would almost certainly put the Lakers back in title contention.

    Making that happen wouldn’t be easy, though.

    It’s hard to see why the Nets would want Westbrook back in a trade with Irving. So the Lakers might need to clear two terribly high hurdles: convince Irving to play for a massive discount (the $6.4 million taxpayer mid-tier exception) and find a taker for the $47.1 million salary. dollars from Westbrook.

    If those hurdles can be overcome and LeBron believes some of Kyrie’s recent comments about their time together, he should definitely be interested in a reunion.

    Verdict: Buy that LeBron wants to play with Kyrie. Sell ​​that LA will be able to make it happen.

    If Kyrie leaves the Nets, Kevin Durant will have to think long and hard before pushing for his own departure.

    He and Irving were a forfeit for Brooklyn in 2019. If Irving leaves, KD will have to play with Ben Simmons and a bunch of roleplayers who couldn’t get him and Kyrie out of the first round.

    Aside from what could come back in an Irving sign-and-trade, it’s hard to imagine the Durant-Simmons version of the Nets will fare much better next season. Recovering what’s left of his prime (KD turns 34 in September) and chasing a third title might require a move elsewhere.

    As painful as it may be in the short term, Brooklyn could finally agree to land a massive booty for Durant if Irving leaves.

    Jaime Oppenheim @JustOpp

    Getting lost in all the Kyrie nonsense is that #7 is:

    – At 34 years old
    -Entry into the 1st year of a 4-year extension, $194 million
    -Shot 39% and averaged 5 TOs in the playoffs
    -Played in 90 regular season games in the last 3 years

    Despite the red flags above, a team would surely break the asset bank to land him. That would leave the Nets with a 26-year-old multi-time All-Star in Simmons and likely other young players and picks to rebuild.

    Verdict: Buy

5 out of 5

    Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images

    These latest rumors sound like public negotiations.

    Given all the absences and drama that has followed Kyrie since leaving Cleveland, it’s hard to imagine a robust trade market for him. That makes the unsubscribe and downgrade route his most likely path to another team, and even that seems like a long shot.

    Instead, perhaps after more reporting and posturing from both sides, expect some sort of shorter-term deal with minimum gaming thresholds and other guarantees for the Nets.

    At worst, Kyrie could take his $36.5 million player option, work to rehabilitate his worth this season, and become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. If that motivates Irving to be on the court and engaged as much as possible, that path could be the best for the Nets’ 2022-23 prospects.

    Durant may not have much time left on the ‘Most Player on a Title Team’ tier. Adding that third championship will likely be more difficult every season from now on.

    Verdict: sell

New Delhi, June 19 (IANS): As FIIs are on the rise in Indian markets, domestic institutions, including mutual funds and insurance companies, have acted as a buffer, driven by the massive influx of retail money into the stock markets.

FII recorded the eighth consecutive month of outflows in May at $4.9 billion. However, the outflows were more than offset by the large DII inflows. In May 2022, DII recorded the highest inflows since March 2020 at $6.1 billion, according to a report by Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

The Nifty ended down 3% MoM at 16,585 in May – the second consecutive month of decline. However, Nifty remained resilient in CY22YTD despite multiple headwinds.

India was among the laggards in May. Russia (minus 7%), India (minus 3%) and Indonesia (minus 1%) finished down in local currency, while China (5%), Brazil (3%), Japan (2%). ), Taiwan (1%) and the UK (1%) closed higher. Over the past 12 months, the MSCI India (7%) has outperformed the MSCI EM (minus 22%), according to the report.

The cumulative outflows of the last 12 months from the FIIS are at the highest level at 25 billion dollars. In addition, FII hit the longest selling streak since the global financial crisis.

The Nifty ended down 3% MoM at 16,585 in May. This is the second consecutive month of decline and, in fact, the third steepest monthly decline since March 2020.

By sector, Autos (5%) and Consumers (1%) closed higher, while Metals (down 16%), Utilities (down 11%), Oil & Gas (down 10% ), real estate (down 7 percent) were the biggest losers, according to the report.

Institutional flows show the eighth consecutive month of FII outflows while DII inflows were observed for the 15th consecutive month.

India’s market capitalization to GDP ratio has been volatile, reaching 56% (of FY20 GDP) in March 20, from 80% in FY19. It has rebounded to 112% currently (of FY20 GDP). FY22 GDP), above its long-term average of 79%. The ratio was at the highest level since CY07. Currently, on GDP growth of 11% for FY23E, the ratio stands at 98%, according to the report.

Acuite Ratings said what, however, is more concerning at this stage is the high volatility in global financial markets, triggered by a sharp tightening of monetary policies in advanced economies. This continues to drive high and sustained FII capital outflows, adding to the rupee depreciation pressures already created by a higher trade and current account deficit.

Decades ago, retiring doctors could easily sell their practice to a young doctor. Although this is sometimes the case today, changes within the medical industry have significantly affected the buying and selling of medical practices.

According to a New Jersey doctor Dr. Joseph Eastern, MD, most physicians entering their careers are less interested in practicing alone than their colleagues of a generation ago. Thus, today’s young physicians are not the typical purchasers of a medical practice. Rather, this role is largely filled by hospitals, HMOs, or large practice groups. Another factor contributing to this trend is the increasing complexity of rules governing medical practice sales, which necessitate the high price of paying a third-party expert.

Hire a professional financial advisor to handle the valuation

Still, Dr. Eastern urges medical practice sellers not to get discouraged. One strategy for finding the most desirable buyer and structuring the best deal is to ensure an accurate valuation of a practice. This can be accomplished by hiring an experienced and impartial financial consultant to handle the assessment. In addition, the financial consultant should disclose and explain all techniques used in the valuation, providing documentation to support the conclusions. Dr Eastern stresses the importance of bearing in mind that the valuation may not equal the purchase price, which can be affected by factors such as legal constraints.

After entering into a valuation agreement, sellers should consider the structure of the transaction. The three most common structures are purchase of assets, purchase of company stock, and merger. According to Dr. Eastern, many buyers have a soft spot for buying assets because it gives them the flexibility to choose only valuable items. However, most sellers prefer to sell stocks. This allows owners to sell the whole practice, which is worth more than the sum of its parts. In addition, the sale of the entire practice often provides sellers with tax advantages. Fusion, while not as popular as the aforementioned structures, is growing in popularity.

Sellers of medical practices should be mindful of tax issues

It is imperative that sellers consider tax issues. Dr. Eastern points out that the majority of private practices are corporations whose stock sales will produce a long-term taxable capital gain at a rate of 15-20%. Therefore, he advises sellers to accept a slightly lower price if the structure of the sale has an impact on lower tax payments. Sellers can also defer taxes through installment payments. However, they must ensure that the IRS does not confuse these payments with referrals, as this is illegal.

Some sellers may remain employed by the firm for a fixed term, which may also benefit the buyer. This can help improve patient retention during transition. It also gives patients time to get used to changes in the practice.

Even the seller thinks you don’t want (or need) this raised 4×4 diesel motorhome conversion van.

Looking for a great new van? Shame, because we haven’t found a great new van. We found a van you definitely don’t want. It’s old, it’s high mileage, it’s a 7.3 Powerstroke diesel and it has a 4×4 conversion. Wait, why don’t we want this van?

Oh, we see what’s going on here. Someone is Holocaust denial. Telling you all the reasons why you wouldn’t want their used Ford E-Series Van, just knowing it will make you want to bid even more.

Well, that won’t work! And that has nothing to do with GearJunkie not letting me use the company credit card to buy something really cool terrible.

So why don’t you want this 1999 Ford E-350 Sportsmobile motorhome?

Old, Busted, High Miles

(Picture/eBay)

For starters, he is 23 years old. Of course, it’s Oregon originally, then California, so we’ve probably never heard of winter. But, the seller says it has “all the dings and scratches” that come with so many years. Plus, “everyone is staring at you when you drive it.”

Under the short hood, and between you and your passenger is a 7.4-liter Powerstroke V8 turbodiesel. Is this one of the most sought after Ford engines of all time? Yes, but it has 190,000 miles on the clock. That’s probably 20% of its lifespan! Faded away!

And a transmission from John Wood Automotive, a guy who thinks he’s learned a thing or two about building diesel gearboxes since 1983? Pfft.

How powerful is the van with one of these Superchips installed? Enough to make it “fun to watch the faces of You’re here drivers when you put down the hammer and pass them on the way to Mammoth. Of course it is.

so impractical

It’s not a one-owner van; This is a van that a bunch of people have had fun with over the years to make it “better”.

Do you want a 6 inch lift and 4×4 drive conversion from U-joint off road? Of course not. Nobody wants to cram 35-inch tires under their pickup truck. As the seller says, “Don’t waste your money, you’re not really going off-road. You just want it because it looks cool.

Another annoying thing? “He has a Fox twin [shocks] out front so everyone thinks you’re rounding this thing up like a trophy truck.

The body was completely cut up for a sports mobile conversion. So now the roof is way up in the air, and it’s made of fabric. And you have to ride it when you want to camp. Who wants all that work for a little wiggle room?

There is a fridge too big, a cabin heater (OK, that needs to be fixed), and even a hot and cold shower in the back. Who wants a car with a shower?

The seller of this eBay Listing says that “you better drop six figures on an inflated Sprinter.”

The best worst advertisement of all time?

So are there any pros for this van in one of the most hilarious eBay listings we’ve ever seen?

“The only good thing about this platform is that you can live comfortably on it when your significant other kicks you out of the house when they find out what you spent on it.”

So this is it. Bidding closed at $60,000 – we don’t know if it actually sold out though. Which is good, because you didn’t want to buy that champion off-road van life anyway. Here is the refreshing and honest listfor sale by ‘kccourtney.’

Sorry, the photos aren’t good, but that shouldn’t surprise you either this time around.

Ford and Tesla say electric vehicles could sell themselves https://groverchamber.com/ford-and-tesla-say-electric-vehicles-could-sell-themselves/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 06:26:58 +0000 https://groverchamber.com/ford-and-tesla-say-electric-vehicles-could-sell-themselves/ Last week, a piece in Bloomberg told us that Ford seeks to do what Tesla does: not spend on advertising.

Last week, a piece in Bloomberg told us that Ford seeks to do what Tesla does: not spend on advertising. Why? Because its EVs have already been exhausted for two years. With a second manufacturer considering ditching traditional advertising, it looks like EVs could sell themselves, or traditional advertising isn’t what it used to be.

Why Ford dropped electric vehicle advertising

At a recent conference call, Ford CEO Jim Farley told viewers that they already don’t advertise electric vehicles. They first announced the Mustang Mach-E, but it wasn’t long before all the vehicles the company could make for two years were completely sold out. With that kind of backlog, they had no logical reason to spend more on advertising. Then when the F-150 Lightning came out, they decided not to advertise at all, and sales are still great.

Really, it’s just common sense. If you’re selling everything you can do, it doesn’t make sense to spend anything on advertising to sell more stuff than you can’t do right now.

This does not mean that non-advertising companies spend nothing at all on promotion.

Now, to be perfectly fair, a lack of advertising does not mean that there is no effort to promote vehicles. Advertising simply means buying space or time from the media, and does not include “earned media”.

As anyone can see, automakers spend huge amounts of money putting on a show when they launch new vehicles. Journalists receive invitations (often with free flights, hotel and food), lots of money is spent on celebrity presenters and/or musical numbers, and the party itself is not only expensive, but adorned. The video production (for TV and for internet streaming) is top notch.

Additionally, getting journalists’ butts into the seats comes at the company’s expense in many cases. Loan vehicles are sent to journalists (usually for a week, but sometimes longer) so that we can review them. These vehicles receive the best care and cleaning between reviewers, and are often worked on a bit in advance to minimize things like squeaks and rattles.

On top of that, some companies have aggressive sponsorship programs to get vehicle owners or anyone else to help promote the vehicle. I haven’t seen Ford do this, but I know dealerships do it sometimes and manufacturers like Tesla have done it here and there as well.

But advertising alone is still a lot of money

Although the expenses I mentioned above are significant, they are very effective. Instead of putting images of your vehicle in the margins of a publication where readers can ignore you, or between programs viewers actually want to see, Earned Media puts you front and center where people actually watch. The ratio of dollars spent to vehicles sold is very favorable for any company doing this type of advertising.

Advertising not only costs significantly more (Ford spent $3.1 billion last year on advertising alone) – it also gets fewer results than earned media, guerrilla marketing and referrals. It’s still an essential part of staying prioritized for shoppers, but it’s the least effective part of the puzzle.

So, do electric vehicles sell?

I would say they do, but only if the EV doesn’t suck.

Sure, the money goes into the promotion, but the earned media and referrals aren’t really in the hands of a company. Unless the product itself is compelling, or at least decent, no one will get excited about it. No one will write great reviews, watch the launch party, or tell their friends they should buy one if the product doesn’t deliver.

Advertising, on the other hand, doesn’t really have this problem. You can spend gigabucks to get your product in front of people and it will get in front of people, no matter how crappy. Unless you make blatantly false claims or engage in other deceptive practices (that get you in legal hot water), it will work. But the price to get these results is rather high.

So if there’s no more advertising and only earned media and referrals are driving sales, it’s pretty clear that the vehicles themselves are doing the heavy lifting.

Where does Ford’s (former) advertising money go?

While it might seem obvious that spending less money means more profit, Farley told conference attendees he had something better in mind for the roughly $500 to $600 per vehicle that would be saved by avoiding advertising: customer experience.

“Our model is messed up,” Farley told conference attendees. “We don’t spend anything post-warranty on customer experience.”

He mentioned that dealerships could be part of improving the after-sales experience, but that doesn’t give us specifics on what that would mean. Fortunately, I spent some time talking to Ford and may have some clues about something innovative they are doing for Bronco owners.

Most people who aren’t fans of the Bronco and Bronco Sport don’t know that new owners get the chance to attend a special off-road vehicle school that Ford offers at several locations across the United States. I visited a facility near Austin, but I know there are others in famous places like Moab, Utah. When I first pulled over to check out the Bronco Off-Roadeo, I could tell it was something special.

The entrance alone was like entering Jurassic Park, but without the hungry dinosaurs inside looking for small snacks. Like a new vehicle launch party, they clearly went all out to decorate the place and make it a special experience for Bronco owners. They had professional drivers, a set of off-road courses, and a really neat building for class time and meals.

It would be extremely cool to see Ford start doing the same for EV owners in the future. Basic racing lessons for a Mach-E GT, serious work sessions for the Lightning and E-Transit (Ford already does this in some ways), and some time on an Off-Roadeo for some versions of the Lightning could all be amazing ways to give customers a neat experience with what would have gone to advertise.

I’m sure smaller scale events and amenities could also be part of the dealership experience in the future, which would be much better than what people experience at dealerships today.
