even though my body is saying something else.
00:00:04
My bad man. My father.
00:00:07
Now you're funny this week.
00:00:12
Hey, we good, boss? We good.
00:00:14
So I had moved on to this thing.
00:00:17
I don't know if you heard it or not, but, um, I address the regularly article for S and y about the Knicks looking to build around R. J.
00:00:28
Barrett.
00:00:29
Um, my, my, my immediate take is this, um how do you build around r J.
00:00:37
Barrett? That's the question.
00:00:40
I think you need a guy that can shoot, distribute, play D and stay healthy.
00:00:44
And that's a lot to ask for one person, right? Because usually you get one or the other.
00:00:49
You get defense like Frank, you know, you get shooting like e don't know s So with that said, do you trade for Chris Paul? Right.
00:01:02
And if you do that, what do you give up to get Chris? Paul? Um, my my take is I like Westbrook better.
00:01:10
I think Westbrook brings way more than what Knicks fans, um will admit to.
00:01:19
I think Westbrook, for one, brings brings that that mentality like during the season this year.
00:01:26
I don't know if you noticing that.
00:01:28
But the Knicks used to come out flat like a tip off. You saw they were flat.
00:01:32
They dabbing up people, let us jump circle And you could tell the energy is just not there, you know, and R J is like, Yo, what's going on, man? You'll get in the game, you know? You'll get fight up.
00:01:44
Can you imagine coupling RJ with another dude Who's mentality never turns off, You know? You know what I mean? The conversational read three days ago and people were saying Home, Wesley, with a bad fit for our I can't I can't disagree. Mawr.
00:02:05
The reason I can't disagree more is that R.
00:02:08
J is not a good half court player.
00:02:10
He's just not in.
00:02:11
The reason is because he's not a threat to you being buckets, you know, jump shooting.
00:02:17
So hey, strength is.
00:02:20
And if you look at the post All Star break, those post All star break numbers what, you're noticed He was running in transition and his greatest strength is running in transition.
00:02:31
What is Russell Westbrook's greatest strength running in transition? So what? What my what? My debate waas was that if the next bringing Chris Paul.
00:02:43
It will make R.
00:02:45
J.
00:02:46
Barrett a better overall basketball player Now.
00:02:48
He's not gonna.
00:02:49
He's still gonna be averaging hemy average 17 18 points, you know, five or 63 miles, 45%.
00:02:56
You'll see an increase.
00:02:58
But if you bring in Russell Westbrook, aren't you with average 20.
00:03:03
And the reason is he would have so many more fast break opportunities.
00:03:07
And he has a backcourt mate that when we get the ball, we're running.
00:03:11
We're running.
00:03:12
I'm gonna help you and teach you how to get fouled.
00:03:15
I'm gonna teach you how to get easy. **** it.
00:03:17
I'm gonna teach you weather attack on on a two on one fast break or two or three.
00:03:21
Fast break.
00:03:22
You don't have to.
00:03:23
You don't have to slow it down.
00:03:25
I'm gonna show you exactly what attack.
00:03:27
So you're gonna have to file you or they're gonna have to give up the layup is gonna be their choice.
00:03:31
So I think that if we brought in rust, we would see a productivity spike from R.
00:03:36
J not really make him a better basketball play in the half court.
00:03:40
No, it's not.
00:03:42
But you would see, you know him increase his status and his efficiency.
00:03:46
Just something about getting easier shots.
00:03:49
All right? Personally, if I had to choose, I would choose Westbrook because a Russia is still in his prime and his contract literally rooms to the end of the most NBA players.
00:04:03
The great ones around 34 35 is when I started really, really kind of fall off.
00:04:09
His contract stops and he turns 34.
00:04:12
Right? So I mean, he's still gonna be the same guy.
00:04:16
27 30 points, 78 assists.
00:04:18
And he's gonna be that God for the next three years.
00:04:21
And you can have that guy for the next three years, right? But, I mean, I can see both both sides someday want Chris. Paul.
00:04:29
I think Chris Paul be a better great fit for the Knicks as a team.
00:04:33
But we're building around R. J. Barrett.
00:04:37
The better thing to do would be to bring in Westbrook and then find some some green de guise mhm.
00:04:44
And some foreign five guys that can not outside shot.
00:04:49
Yeah, yeah.
00:04:51
Hey, And you know what? And just to just to that point, um um, I had some names written down right of some guys that I wouldn't mind picking up if we if we signed uh, Russell Westbrook or traded for Russell Westbrook.
00:05:07
I wouldn't mind having Marky Marks.
00:05:10
I wouldn't mind having Jae Crowder.
00:05:13
I wouldn't mind having Marcus Morris when mind having Nerlens Noel.
00:05:17
Some some guys that are athletic enough at their position that can can grind in the half court but can also get out and run and at and at times, and at times they can.
00:05:27
They can contribute to your offense, right? They're good.
00:05:31
They're just good enough toe hold their own.
00:05:33
Or on a decent NBA team not good enough to take over and trying to become star right.
00:05:39
But good enough in their roles, like in their defined roles, where they could contribute to a team that's looking to do something.
00:05:46
And they, all of them have that dog in them.
00:05:49
You know what I'm saying? No.
00:05:51
Well, you don't think wants to run.
00:05:55
I mean, I don't know.
00:05:56
I I mean, I figured he would.
00:05:58
I mean, I may be wrong on that, but, you know, I figured that they you know, at least Well, I'll say this.
00:06:06
All MBA players wanna get out, get easy buckets.
00:06:09
You know, that's not like all basketball players gonna do that didn't get the easy bucket.
00:06:13
They'll go.
00:06:14
You know, I'm saying they have not been a man.
00:06:17
We'll have to find somebody else, throw another name in there.
00:06:20
So But I would I would I would definitely.
00:06:25
If we go Westbrook.
00:06:27
And I know this is probably gonna be the conversation to jaw until until those you would go to their their next destination.
00:06:34
But I would prefer, definitely prefer say so and so in, For instance, if we drafted the killing Hayes, I think Chris Paul is the answer, right? And it's just because you probably wanna have one of the godfathers of the point guard position teaching, you know, your neophyte point guard.
00:06:54
But if it's just to deal with, we're building around R J.
00:06:57
I say go get Westbrook because R.
00:06:59
J hasn't mentality off already.
00:07:01
And it's not fair to feed into that tapping toe tap into his best asset, which is that mentality, you know, I'm saying, like he's not gonna jump the highest or run the fastest, but what he doesn't do is back down from a fight.
00:07:14
And I think that's what the Knicks have been missing for a long time.
00:07:18
And it's why I constantly say I asked people, Do you believe in R.
00:07:24
C Barrett? And everybody's gonna say, Yeah, I don't know.
00:07:29
Okay, Well, why are we building and putting talent around him right now? Building about a young player doesn't mean find that minimum, guys, and give him the ultimate green light building on young players.
00:07:42
Means I'm gonna put players around him, possibly even stars around him to teach him how to be raised to the next level.
00:07:52
So you wanna put Russell Westbrook next? Are they buried? That is an ultimate step.
00:08:00
And saying, Well, we believe in RJ.
00:08:02
We believe that he is ready to bring right now.
00:08:05
We don't think it's gonna take in five years to be somebody.
00:08:08
Oh, playoff game.
00:08:10
So if you're if you really believe in this kid, you're not gonna waste time.
00:08:16
You know what I mean? When Dwyane Wade got to the heat, they start making moves to me.
00:08:22
Okay? We're gonna bring along some more.
00:08:24
We're gonna bring in Gary Payton.
00:08:25
We're gonna make a move and give up these picks and bringing shot dead.
00:08:27
We don't start building.
00:08:28
Your answer is, well, we need to give time, develop over the kids.
00:08:35
You think he's only more time.
00:08:37
So right.
00:08:38
Just by bringing in somebody like a Westbrook with the amount of production, you kid is going to take all the pressure off the other guards on the roster because it is so good.
00:08:51
And I'm not trying to say he's Michael Jordan, but Michael Jordan to do this also, Westbrook is so good if your guards are breaking shots and r J two for nine in the first half.
00:09:03
Got Kevin Knox.
00:09:05
He's three for seven in the first half and he breaking free throws.
00:09:09
Right? What you say? Okay, I gotta get for tonight.
00:09:13
I got you for E to school, you know, and I gotta find a way to find these guys.
00:09:18
Take it easy.
00:09:20
Yeah, right.
00:09:21
So a coach wearing a suit, You can't teach a player to be that cool.
00:09:27
You can teach a player you know how to use that.
00:09:30
It is unite, aggressiveness to event.
00:09:33
It's gonna take somebody in your shorts.
00:09:35
You know what I'm saying? So if the Knicks are truly wanting to.
00:09:39
They're saying we would have been happy to fit this E.
00:09:43
I'm expecting his name like Try Side Christian would need to try to find a way to get Victor Lee people to take pressure off out there on the defensive.
00:09:52
I need to hear some names coming in to help get these kids to the playoffs.
00:09:56
And who knows? You may get to the playoffs this year and R.
00:10:00
J May.
00:10:01
He may explode.
00:10:02
We saw Jamal Murray explode, but you gotta put the kid in the opportunity to do so, putting them on the court with I see lineup life.
00:10:11
Okay, we have 24 Arjun to knocks it.
00:10:15
Three Randall before making fax Esmat.
00:10:20
That's not a lot of confusion to these kids being successful.
00:10:24
It's not.
00:10:25
She's the only confident involved in in that lineup.
00:10:29
So you put all the pressure on here to carry carry it alone? Yeah, the main down offense, like it is not gonna work.
00:10:36
So if that was a true statement and a valid storage, their their moves and the opposition's is don't tell us that, right? Right.
00:10:48
Well, well, I'll I asked.
00:10:51
I asked.
00:10:52
I asked us what do we do with Kevin Knox? I'm asking this because I wanna figure out legit.
00:11:02
Is Kevin knocks the guy that we should put next toe RJ going forward? Like what? Like what do we do? What do we What? What what does not need to improve on and that Not in result.
00:11:15
Now I'm not talking about Well, his scoring is improve.
00:11:18
I ain't talking about that because that's the end result.
00:11:20
Because if he does other things, then his score like if he gets, if he gets better looks, his scoring me improved, right? Or or um, if they if he gets bigger and stronger, his score may improve.
00:11:33
I'm talking about, you know, that's what I'm talking about.
00:11:35
Like like, what does he need to do in order to be the contributor that we want? If Kevin Nice is making his jump shots, Yeah, he would be ideal of because he's also is about it.
00:11:51
Um, RJ's already decent and finding cutters.
00:11:55
Knox will run in transition.
00:11:56
He's okay and finishing in transition.
00:11:59
So, you know, if he's making his shots, yes, he would be an ideal guy.
00:12:06
Prepare with Andre because not doesn't have to have the ball, you know, to really to be productive in the successful.
00:12:12
So, yeah, if he's on leave, he's hitting his shots.
00:12:15
But if he's not hit the shots, then I don't see it.
00:12:21
I tell you what I think Nazis to do, right and and And I know you know, I generally get killed for, like, going back and forth or knocks, because you know what? Because what happens is is I get into my hopeful Knicks fan young core mentality and can see the hot upside of knots.
00:12:45
And then I go back and watch tape and like this, this FM make me so mad I could just throw my laptop out the window.
00:12:51
You know the same thing with Frank, like Aiken legit, like legit saw tape where Frank had open shots where a guy is 10 ft of mall away from the basket and he was so busy looking to set up another guy that he wasn't aggressive on offense.
00:13:07
And I don't know if that lack of aggression is flat out lack of aggression or if he's just too scared to take a shot.
00:13:15
She's scared to make a mistake, so the thing would not I think, if not, tightens up his handle.
00:13:22
I think Kevin Knox legit, tightens up his handle, right? I think that's one of the things that that unlocks his his scoring ability, right? And I also thank if Kevin Knox, it's physically stronger and mawr explosive.
00:13:42
And I'm not talking about I'm talking about what you could do in the gym with with your body, like he can't become Zach Lavine, Zach Lavine, Zach Lavine.
00:13:50
But what I'm saying is is if Kevin Knox is able to get stronger physically to take to stop getting bumped off this spot, going to the basket and mawr explosive, you know, I'm saying going to the basket, you know, in his explosion.
00:14:05
I'm not talking about, like, you know, whatever. Whatever.
00:14:08
I think that helps not become at least an efficient 14 point per game scorer like he was like in his rookie.
00:14:17
And he was an inefficient 13 14 point per game scar.
00:14:22
But I think a tighter handle and, you know, and I'm not talking about, you know, Shammgod, I'm talking about like, you know, an average NBA player for his position, you know? So I think I think he could get to the basket and score more, and I think it frees up him.
00:14:39
Um, getting, you know, knocking down shots and with those two things do together is help its confidence, right? Because I think I think what happened is when they brought in Marcus Morris and 1000 power forwards last year, I think that should knock his confidence.
00:14:54
You know, I'm saying he went from being a guy that had the ball a lot to a guy that had to fight for fight for minutes and all that stuff.
00:15:02
And I think that kind of, you know, bump knocks in the wrong direction, you know, And and so to a point that that Rick said he was like, um basically the coaching didn't matter because it is only coach certain games and and Miller coach, the majority of the season Miller Coats probably about 75% of the season.
00:15:23
So it's not a Fizdale thing or a Miller thing.
00:15:26
It was the organizational thing with Knox, like, you know, the organization felt like he wasn't ready and in that scenario, do you send him to the D League and then get minutes? Well, they didn't and they even bought in.
00:15:38
Yeah, well, yeah, Yeah, but, um, so, you know, even they traded away move and bought in Mo Harkless and still didn't give knocks minutes.
00:15:49
You know what I'm saying? So I think it was an organizational thing that felt like he wasn't He wasn't ready.
00:15:53
But then when you go wife's tape, there was games with the Knicks. Were flat.
00:15:58
And, um, like the Chicago game in Chicago where Kobe White scored 30 on us.
00:16:04
Everybody was flat, except Knox Knox was the one hustling Not to the one that out random, the loose ball out transact Levine for the loose ball to get next, the next a dunk at the other end.
00:16:15
People for you know, way say only we look at not to say, Well, he needs to, you know, have a higher motor or whatever, but when you watch tape, there is legit tape.
00:16:26
And if you'll argue this point, I'm gonna give you homework, go back and watch Knicks games.
00:16:32
Don't come at me with, like, not to the low motor all the time to me.
00:16:36
In my opinion, Nazis has an inconsistent motor like sometimes it's not on it all, and then Sometimes it's on to the point where he does stupid stuff.
00:16:47
You know, I'm saying to me that that's where Knox is, if you But if you you know, just to wrap up at some point about Knox, if he gets stronger and more explosive, like like, you know, get his body into, um um, Peak Kevin Knox shape and becomes more explosive at the basket, then I think that helps.
00:17:07
And also a tighter handle where if he catches the ball on the defender, you know, I'm saying, Can't get his jump shot off.
00:17:15
He can put the ball on the floor and and go to the basket and or head towards the basket.
00:17:21
Not even if he's gonna go all the way, but go towards the basket and and create another shot for itself.
00:17:26
I think that helps not to become, um, a better player.
00:17:30
Now, does that help RJ? Yes, because the main thing you wanna do is have defense's have to respect Kevin Knots when RJ's driving and vice versa.
00:17:41
You know what I'm saying? So I don't think Kevin Knox is a lost cause.
00:17:44
But what I do think is, um, Kevin Knox has glaring, glaring needs like he has to tighten up his handle.
00:17:51
I think it starts there and in the gym.
00:17:54
Kevin Knox can't play in the NBA at 67205 or whatever they have them.
00:18:00
Listen at Kent Knox has to get at least 2 to 12 or whatever it is.
00:18:04
Whatever it is he needs to put on, like, 8 to 10 more pounds so that when he goes to the basket, small nudges doesn't push him off balance.
00:18:16
Like Like Like I think that who is a big They're looking body cheese balls in lab coats.
00:18:32
So I guess it thinks What do you What do you What do you want? Like, who do you see Kevin Knox meeting in three years.
00:18:42
Oh, because Because if you if you have, if you have a thought on who you want him to be, then you can bring in that veteran archetype to help.
00:18:51
Nuts actually seeing six.
00:18:57
I will say this and this is the same thing that I said.
00:19:01
Okay.
00:19:02
Also advanced with inefficient is a rookie.
00:19:04
I can keep Macy because he only took you feel numbers like 12 shots.
00:19:11
Hey, like, there is a He took 11 shots a game, making 45 per se.
00:19:19
You know, right? So I don't think that is an efficiency issue.
00:19:23
I think that it's a it's a decision making issue, and that's why I said the same thing for Co Anthony is not about, you know, not being able to make shots.
00:19:33
It's about knowing which Shanks you shouldn't take.
00:19:36
You know what I mean? Same thing with Julius Randle.
00:19:39
He shot 40% from the corners on threes, but, like 25% from the elbow, the majority, his three points came from the elbows.
00:19:48
Now someone at his coaching, because you're not getting the players to the positions where they could really succeed on some of that is on the player like do 25% from here.
00:19:57
He's taking most of your three.
00:19:58
So the same thing with Knox, like a shot chart can tell you out of place, you know, and you have to tell, but the common sense with it.
00:20:07
But I like what Rick said.
00:20:11
Otto Porter, that somebody had a conversation about recently.
00:20:14
E think Knox could be that type of dude.
00:20:17
You may never be a song I'm open threes.
00:20:21
He can He can attack, close out and get to the basket.
00:20:24
You could finish, and he can defend some.
00:20:26
And I think that, you know, I'm not really 100% soul that he loved the biggest issue with him.
00:20:36
80 points before.
00:20:37
Motivated? Yes.
00:20:44
I think it's crazy.
00:20:45
Good game.
00:20:47
Take a while on the same shapes.
00:20:50
So quarter.
00:20:58
Hey, man.
00:20:59
Hey, you might a Well, your mike is low.
00:21:01
You gotta Do you have a handset? Yeah.
00:21:07
Okay.
00:21:10
Okay. Hey.
00:21:11
So so while, um, so what risks? That I don't partner. I think that's great.
00:21:16
I think that's probably, you know what? What we'd be looking for from a Kevin Knots at this point, you know what I mean? E don't know which is more athletic.
00:21:27
I know.
00:21:28
I don't Quarter when he's healthy, is a decent defender, a decent three point shooter.
00:21:34
I q player.
00:21:36
Um, I could see I could see, um, se in adult porter.
00:21:43
And plus, I think, um, it plus an auto quarter is that more tight player that can play in any style, Like like he can legit play at the three and thrive.
00:21:57
Um, if you go small.
00:21:58
I can see him playing like a small ball.
00:22:01
For even though I'm not a fan of that, I can see him doing it.
00:22:06
Um, I'm not one of those guys that that wanna push people up.
00:22:10
Um, all right, I got a dog.
00:22:13
I'm not a guy that likes to push people up a position.
00:22:16
Yeah, I feel like they should just, you know, play with natural to him, but, um

00:00:00
even though my body is saying something else.
00:00:04
My bad man. My father.
00:00:07
Now you're funny this week.
00:00:12
Hey, we good, boss? We good.
00:00:14
So I had moved on to this thing.
00:00:17
I don't know if you heard it or not, but, um, I address the regularly article for S and y about the Knicks looking to build around R. J.
00:00:28
Barrett.
00:00:29
Um, my, my, my immediate take is this, um how do you build around r J.
00:00:37
Barrett? That's the question.
00:00:40
I think you need a guy that can shoot, distribute, play D and stay healthy.
00:00:44
And that's a lot to ask for one person, right? Because usually you get one or the other.
00:00:49
You get defense like Frank, you know, you get shooting like e don't know s So with that said, do you trade for Chris Paul? Right.
00:01:02
And if you do that, what do you give up to get Chris? Paul? Um, my my take is I like Westbrook better.
00:01:10
I think Westbrook brings way more than what Knicks fans, um will admit to.
00:01:19
I think Westbrook, for one, brings brings that that mentality like during the season this year.
00:01:26
I don't know if you noticing that.
00:01:28
But the Knicks used to come out flat like a tip off. You saw they were flat.
00:01:32
They dabbing up people, let us jump circle And you could tell the energy is just not there, you know, and R J is like, Yo, what's going on, man? You'll get in the game, you know? You'll get fight up.
00:01:44
Can you imagine coupling RJ with another dude Who's mentality never turns off, You know? You know what I mean? The conversational read three days ago and people were saying Home, Wesley, with a bad fit for our I can't I can't disagree. Mawr.
00:02:05
The reason I can't disagree more is that R.
00:02:08
J is not a good half court player.
00:02:10
He's just not in.
00:02:11
The reason is because he's not a threat to you being buckets, you know, jump shooting.
00:02:17
So hey, strength is.
00:02:20
And if you look at the post All Star break, those post All star break numbers what, you're noticed He was running in transition and his greatest strength is running in transition.
00:02:31
What is Russell Westbrook's greatest strength running in transition? So what? What my what? My debate waas was that if the next bringing Chris Paul.
00:02:43
It will make R.
00:02:45
J.
00:02:46
Barrett a better overall basketball player Now.
00:02:48
He's not gonna.
00:02:49
He's still gonna be averaging hemy average 17 18 points, you know, five or 63 miles, 45%.
00:02:56
You'll see an increase.
00:02:58
But if you bring in Russell Westbrook, aren't you with average 20.
00:03:03
And the reason is he would have so many more fast break opportunities.
00:03:07
And he has a backcourt mate that when we get the ball, we're running.
00:03:11
We're running.
00:03:12
I'm gonna help you and teach you how to get fouled.
00:03:15
I'm gonna teach you how to get easy. **** it.
00:03:17
I'm gonna teach you weather attack on on a two on one fast break or two or three.
00:03:21
Fast break.
00:03:22
You don't have to.
00:03:23
You don't have to slow it down.
00:03:25
I'm gonna show you exactly what attack.
00:03:27
So you're gonna have to file you or they're gonna have to give up the layup is gonna be their choice.
00:03:31
So I think that if we brought in rust, we would see a productivity spike from R.
00:03:36
J not really make him a better basketball play in the half court.
00:03:40
No, it's not.
00:03:42
But you would see, you know him increase his status and his efficiency.
00:03:46
Just something about getting easier shots.
00:03:49
All right? Personally, if I had to choose, I would choose Westbrook because a Russia is still in his prime and his contract literally rooms to the end of the most NBA players.
00:04:03
The great ones around 34 35 is when I started really, really kind of fall off.
00:04:09
His contract stops and he turns 34.
00:04:12
Right? So I mean, he's still gonna be the same guy.
00:04:16
27 30 points, 78 assists.
00:04:18
And he's gonna be that God for the next three years.
00:04:21
And you can have that guy for the next three years, right? But, I mean, I can see both both sides someday want Chris. Paul.
00:04:29
I think Chris Paul be a better great fit for the Knicks as a team.
00:04:33
But we're building around R. J. Barrett.
00:04:37
The better thing to do would be to bring in Westbrook and then find some some green de guise mhm.
00:04:44
And some foreign five guys that can not outside shot.
00:04:49
Yeah, yeah.
00:04:51
Hey, And you know what? And just to just to that point, um um, I had some names written down right of some guys that I wouldn't mind picking up if we if we signed uh, Russell Westbrook or traded for Russell Westbrook.
00:05:07
I wouldn't mind having Marky Marks.
00:05:10
I wouldn't mind having Jae Crowder.
00:05:13
I wouldn't mind having Marcus Morris when mind having Nerlens Noel.
00:05:17
Some some guys that are athletic enough at their position that can can grind in the half court but can also get out and run and at and at times, and at times they can.
00:05:27
They can contribute to your offense, right? They're good.
00:05:31
They're just good enough toe hold their own.
00:05:33
Or on a decent NBA team not good enough to take over and trying to become star right.
00:05:39
But good enough in their roles, like in their defined roles, where they could contribute to a team that's looking to do something.
00:05:46
And they, all of them have that dog in them.
00:05:49
You know what I'm saying? No.
00:05:51
Well, you don't think wants to run.
00:05:55
I mean, I don't know.
00:05:56
I I mean, I figured he would.
00:05:58
I mean, I may be wrong on that, but, you know, I figured that they you know, at least Well, I'll say this.
00:06:06
All MBA players wanna get out, get easy buckets.
00:06:09
You know, that's not like all basketball players gonna do that didn't get the easy bucket.
00:06:13
They'll go.
00:06:14
You know, I'm saying they have not been a man.
00:06:17
We'll have to find somebody else, throw another name in there.
00:06:20
So But I would I would I would definitely.
00:06:25
If we go Westbrook.
00:06:27
And I know this is probably gonna be the conversation to jaw until until those you would go to their their next destination.
00:06:34
But I would prefer, definitely prefer say so and so in, For instance, if we drafted the killing Hayes, I think Chris Paul is the answer, right? And it's just because you probably wanna have one of the godfathers of the point guard position teaching, you know, your neophyte point guard.
00:06:54
But if it's just to deal with, we're building around R J.
00:06:57
I say go get Westbrook because R.
00:06:59
J hasn't mentality off already.
00:07:01
And it's not fair to feed into that tapping toe tap into his best asset, which is that mentality, you know, I'm saying, like he's not gonna jump the highest or run the fastest, but what he doesn't do is back down from a fight.
00:07:14
And I think that's what the Knicks have been missing for a long time.
00:07:18
And it's why I constantly say I asked people, Do you believe in R.
00:07:24
C Barrett? And everybody's gonna say, Yeah, I don't know.
00:07:29
Okay, Well, why are we building and putting talent around him right now? Building about a young player doesn't mean find that minimum, guys, and give him the ultimate green light building on young players.
00:07:42
Means I'm gonna put players around him, possibly even stars around him to teach him how to be raised to the next level.
00:07:52
So you wanna put Russell Westbrook next? Are they buried? That is an ultimate step.
00:08:00
And saying, Well, we believe in RJ.
00:08:02
We believe that he is ready to bring right now.
00:08:05
We don't think it's gonna take in five years to be somebody.
00:08:08
Oh, playoff game.
00:08:10
So if you're if you really believe in this kid, you're not gonna waste time.
00:08:16
You know what I mean? When Dwyane Wade got to the heat, they start making moves to me.
00:08:22
Okay? We're gonna bring along some more.
00:08:24
We're gonna bring in Gary Payton.
00:08:25
We're gonna make a move and give up these picks and bringing shot dead.
00:08:27
We don't start building.
00:08:28
Your answer is, well, we need to give time, develop over the kids.
00:08:35
You think he's only more time.
00:08:37
So right.
00:08:38
Just by bringing in somebody like a Westbrook with the amount of production, you kid is going to take all the pressure off the other guards on the roster because it is so good.
00:08:51
And I'm not trying to say he's Michael Jordan, but Michael Jordan to do this also, Westbrook is so good if your guards are breaking shots and r J two for nine in the first half.
00:09:03
Got Kevin Knox.
00:09:05
He's three for seven in the first half and he breaking free throws.
00:09:09
Right? What you say? Okay, I gotta get for tonight.
00:09:13
I got you for E to school, you know, and I gotta find a way to find these guys.
00:09:18
Take it easy.
00:09:20
Yeah, right.
00:09:21
So a coach wearing a suit, You can't teach a player to be that cool.
00:09:27
You can teach a player you know how to use that.
00:09:30
It is unite, aggressiveness to event.
00:09:33
It's gonna take somebody in your shorts.
00:09:35
You know what I'm saying? So if the Knicks are truly wanting to.
00:09:39
They're saying we would have been happy to fit this E.
00:09:43
I'm expecting his name like Try Side Christian would need to try to find a way to get Victor Lee people to take pressure off out there on the defensive.
00:09:52
I need to hear some names coming in to help get these kids to the playoffs.
00:09:56
And who knows? You may get to the playoffs this year and R.
00:10:00
J May.
00:10:01
He may explode.
00:10:02
We saw Jamal Murray explode, but you gotta put the kid in the opportunity to do so, putting them on the court with I see lineup life.
00:10:11
Okay, we have 24 Arjun to knocks it.
00:10:15
Three Randall before making fax Esmat.
00:10:20
That's not a lot of confusion to these kids being successful.
00:10:24
It's not.
00:10:25
She's the only confident involved in in that lineup.
00:10:29
So you put all the pressure on here to carry carry it alone? Yeah, the main down offense, like it is not gonna work.
00:10:36
So if that was a true statement and a valid storage, their their moves and the opposition's is don't tell us that, right? Right.
00:10:48
Well, well, I'll I asked.
00:10:51
I asked.
00:10:52
I asked us what do we do with Kevin Knox? I'm asking this because I wanna figure out legit.
00:11:02
Is Kevin knocks the guy that we should put next toe RJ going forward? Like what? Like what do we do? What do we What? What what does not need to improve on and that Not in result.
00:11:15
Now I'm not talking about Well, his scoring is improve.
00:11:18
I ain't talking about that because that's the end result.
00:11:20
Because if he does other things, then his score like if he gets, if he gets better looks, his scoring me improved, right? Or or um, if they if he gets bigger and stronger, his score may improve.
00:11:33
I'm talking about, you know, that's what I'm talking about.
00:11:35
Like like, what does he need to do in order to be the contributor that we want? If Kevin Nice is making his jump shots, Yeah, he would be ideal of because he's also is about it.
00:11:51
Um, RJ's already decent and finding cutters.
00:11:55
Knox will run in transition.
00:11:56
He's okay and finishing in transition.
00:11:59
So, you know, if he's making his shots, yes, he would be an ideal guy.
00:12:06
Prepare with Andre because not doesn't have to have the ball, you know, to really to be productive in the successful.
00:12:12
So, yeah, if he's on leave, he's hitting his shots.
00:12:15
But if he's not hit the shots, then I don't see it.
00:12:21
I tell you what I think Nazis to do, right and and And I know you know, I generally get killed for, like, going back and forth or knocks, because you know what? Because what happens is is I get into my hopeful Knicks fan young core mentality and can see the hot upside of knots.
00:12:45
And then I go back and watch tape and like this, this FM make me so mad I could just throw my laptop out the window.
00:12:51
You know the same thing with Frank, like Aiken legit, like legit saw tape where Frank had open shots where a guy is 10 ft of mall away from the basket and he was so busy looking to set up another guy that he wasn't aggressive on offense.
00:13:07
And I don't know if that lack of aggression is flat out lack of aggression or if he's just too scared to take a shot.
00:13:15
She's scared to make a mistake, so the thing would not I think, if not, tightens up his handle.
00:13:22
I think Kevin Knox legit, tightens up his handle, right? I think that's one of the things that that unlocks his his scoring ability, right? And I also thank if Kevin Knox, it's physically stronger and mawr explosive.
00:13:42
And I'm not talking about I'm talking about what you could do in the gym with with your body, like he can't become Zach Lavine, Zach Lavine, Zach Lavine.
00:13:50
But what I'm saying is is if Kevin Knox is able to get stronger physically to take to stop getting bumped off this spot, going to the basket and mawr explosive, you know, I'm saying going to the basket, you know, in his explosion.
00:14:05
I'm not talking about, like, you know, whatever. Whatever.
00:14:08
I think that helps not become at least an efficient 14 point per game scorer like he was like in his rookie.
00:14:17
And he was an inefficient 13 14 point per game scar.
00:14:22
But I think a tighter handle and, you know, and I'm not talking about, you know, Shammgod, I'm talking about like, you know, an average NBA player for his position, you know? So I think I think he could get to the basket and score more, and I think it frees up him.
00:14:39
Um, getting, you know, knocking down shots and with those two things do together is help its confidence, right? Because I think I think what happened is when they brought in Marcus Morris and 1000 power forwards last year, I think that should knock his confidence.
00:14:54
You know, I'm saying he went from being a guy that had the ball a lot to a guy that had to fight for fight for minutes and all that stuff.
00:15:02
And I think that kind of, you know, bump knocks in the wrong direction, you know, And and so to a point that that Rick said he was like, um basically the coaching didn't matter because it is only coach certain games and and Miller coach, the majority of the season Miller Coats probably about 75% of the season.
00:15:23
So it's not a Fizdale thing or a Miller thing.
00:15:26
It was the organizational thing with Knox, like, you know, the organization felt like he wasn't ready and in that scenario, do you send him to the D League and then get minutes? Well, they didn't and they even bought in.
00:15:38
Yeah, well, yeah, Yeah, but, um, so, you know, even they traded away move and bought in Mo Harkless and still didn't give knocks minutes.
00:15:49
You know what I'm saying? So I think it was an organizational thing that felt like he wasn't He wasn't ready.
00:15:53
But then when you go wife's tape, there was games with the Knicks. Were flat.
00:15:58
And, um, like the Chicago game in Chicago where Kobe White scored 30 on us.
00:16:04
Everybody was flat, except Knox Knox was the one hustling Not to the one that out random, the loose ball out transact Levine for the loose ball to get next, the next a dunk at the other end.
00:16:15
People for you know, way say only we look at not to say, Well, he needs to, you know, have a higher motor or whatever, but when you watch tape, there is legit tape.
00:16:26
And if you'll argue this point, I'm gonna give you homework, go back and watch Knicks games.
00:16:32
Don't come at me with, like, not to the low motor all the time to me.
00:16:36
In my opinion, Nazis has an inconsistent motor like sometimes it's not on it all, and then Sometimes it's on to the point where he does stupid stuff.
00:16:47
You know, I'm saying to me that that's where Knox is, if you But if you you know, just to wrap up at some point about Knox, if he gets stronger and more explosive, like like, you know, get his body into, um um, Peak Kevin Knox shape and becomes more explosive at the basket, then I think that helps.
00:17:07
And also a tighter handle where if he catches the ball on the defender, you know, I'm saying, Can't get his jump shot off.
00:17:15
He can put the ball on the floor and and go to the basket and or head towards the basket.
00:17:21
Not even if he's gonna go all the way, but go towards the basket and and create another shot for itself.
00:17:26
I think that helps not to become, um, a better player.
00:17:30
Now, does that help RJ? Yes, because the main thing you wanna do is have defense's have to respect Kevin Knots when RJ's driving and vice versa.
00:17:41
You know what I'm saying? So I don't think Kevin Knox is a lost cause.
00:17:44
But what I do think is, um, Kevin Knox has glaring, glaring needs like he has to tighten up his handle.
00:17:51
I think it starts there and in the gym.
00:17:54
Kevin Knox can't play in the NBA at 67205 or whatever they have them.
00:18:00
Listen at Kent Knox has to get at least 2 to 12 or whatever it is.
00:18:04
Whatever it is he needs to put on, like, 8 to 10 more pounds so that when he goes to the basket, small nudges doesn't push him off balance.
00:18:16
Like Like Like I think that who is a big They're looking body cheese balls in lab coats.
00:18:32
So I guess it thinks What do you What do you What do you want? Like, who do you see Kevin Knox meeting in three years.
00:18:42
Oh, because Because if you if you have, if you have a thought on who you want him to be, then you can bring in that veteran archetype to help.
00:18:51
Nuts actually seeing six.
00:18:57
I will say this and this is the same thing that I said.
00:19:01
Okay.
00:19:02
Also advanced with inefficient is a rookie.
00:19:04
I can keep Macy because he only took you feel numbers like 12 shots.
00:19:11
Hey, like, there is a He took 11 shots a game, making 45 per se.
00:19:19
You know, right? So I don't think that is an efficiency issue.
00:19:23
I think that it's a it's a decision making issue, and that's why I said the same thing for Co Anthony is not about, you know, not being able to make shots.
00:19:33
It's about knowing which Shanks you shouldn't take.
00:19:36
You know what I mean? Same thing with Julius Randle.
00:19:39
He shot 40% from the corners on threes, but, like 25% from the elbow, the majority, his three points came from the elbows.
00:19:48
Now someone at his coaching, because you're not getting the players to the positions where they could really succeed on some of that is on the player like do 25% from here.
00:19:57
He's taking most of your three.
00:19:58
So the same thing with Knox, like a shot chart can tell you out of place, you know, and you have to tell, but the common sense with it.
00:20:07
But I like what Rick said.
00:20:11
Otto Porter, that somebody had a conversation about recently.
00:20:14
E think Knox could be that type of dude.
00:20:17
You may never be a song I'm open threes.
00:20:21
He can He can attack, close out and get to the basket.
00:20:24
You could finish, and he can defend some.
00:20:26
And I think that, you know, I'm not really 100% soul that he loved the biggest issue with him.
00:20:36
80 points before.
00:20:37
Motivated? Yes.
00:20:44
I think it's crazy.
00:20:45
Good game.
00:20:47
Take a while on the same shapes.
00:20:50
So quarter.
00:20:58
Hey, man.
00:20:59
Hey, you might a Well, your mike is low.
00:21:01
You gotta Do you have a handset? Yeah.
00:21:07
Okay.
