CHRIS HAYNES: You know I got to hit you with this. You got a Big Mac extension on the table. It was presented to you officially, presented to you, I believe it was, I don't know last month, something like that.

BRADLEY BEAL: Yeah.

CHRIS HAYNES: Brad, I don't mean to do my-- let me see, are you familiar with Fat Joe? When he goes live sometimes, Brad it's like--

BRADLEY BEAL: [INAUDIBLE] so. You got to remind me.

CHRIS HAYNES: What are you like? This is exclusive, [INAUDIBLE] Bill. What are you going to do Bill? You got Max, you like your situation, you have plenty of opportunities to leave, but what are you going to ultimately do? You got you got time. It's not something you got to make a decision on now, but that Max is on the table. What's going on?

BRADLEY BEAL: It's basically what you just said. I got time right. So I kind of hold the cards right now. And I've one, never been in this position. And so I'm embracing that. being able to dictate how I want my future to be and where I want it to be. And at the same time, I'm like I'm giving ship that opportunity to show that it's working. But at the same time, I'm not going to make that grand commitment and it doesn't work.

Ultimately you have to be selfish at some point. And for probably the first time in my career, year 10 I am with my full commitment is to the team. I wanted to work, you know what I'm saying.

I've contributed to being here, I've committed to being here twice. And so now I want to see that commitment to me as well that we can create a winning team here and winning environment granted I'm a part of that. So I got to make sure that I'm stepping up and doing my thing too just as well.
