you go there, for instance, you you draft Killian.
Hes at 27 you draft Tyler Bay.
And at 38 you draft J scrub, but I just throwing out names now.
I mean, I don't care who did.
I don't care who Leon Rolls jabs as long as long as they're contributed to the team.
Right in my heart.
I would love to get Erin E.
Smith, but But you gotta You gotta believe in the front office at some point, right? I have plenty of time to debate moves that the front office does later.
You know what I'm saying? But But at this time, I need to at least, you know, trusting them that they're going to make the right decision based off of what they see in house.
I don't see the stuff in house.
All I can go by is rumors and sources and all that stuff from from media.
Right, So So I feel like, you know, you got three rookies you know you have.
You already have, like, six young dudes.
Um, that's, like, 99 Young dude, you only have 17 roster spots.
You know, I feel like if it's time to move on from Frank that it's time to move on from Frank.
If it's time to move on from D S J, it's time to move on from D S. J.
You need to see what you have in nature, Robinson.
Um, you know, because if he's gonna be a backup at 1.
5 mil, okay, But we can't make him the starter and payment.
Um, five years, $15 million.
And then as soon as we give them 15 mil, we're like, Oh, ****, we made a mistake.
Now we have to try to trade away $15 million.
You know, I'm saying, I'm saying in the same thing with with Kevin Knots, I think you need toe to look at Knox and say, Hey, Knox, listen, we've got to get you in shape.
We gotta get you in India shape, because right now Knox is built like Gumby.
His legs are super thin.
You know what I'm saying? Knocks at 67 to whatever.
Whatever it is he is.
You know, I think r.
Barrett, I think r.
Barrett can manhandle Kevin Knox right now just based off of Nazis body type.
You know, I'm saying, And then if you're if you're starting shooting guard can manhandle your small forward slash power forward.
That means either you have an exceptional, exceptionally strong shooting guard or your small forward slash power for is very light in the wrong.
So but anyway, Heywood.
So you know, I want to move on.
Let me say this one thing to I want to point out this one thing.
Um, I think it is, and I say it's a false narrative and I think people are frustrated with me pointing out false narratives.
But I just have to do it for the sake of clarity and conversation, because I feel like sometimes we do tend to slander certain players, whether it's frame or not, or R J or Mitch or Alfred, Peyton or whoever are like I like the player.
I think it's landed the most, and it's unfair is Bobby Portis.
Bobby Partners gets the most unfair slander you have ever seen for next player.
I mean, it's borderline ridiculous.
I mean, but But that's something that I'll do on on another show, because I know you wanted.
I know you want to talk about the mock draft right But I just want to point out just one thing, right? So, um, the narrative is that R.
Barrett can't shoot free throws, right? Part of that is true.
Part of that is not so.
Barrett shot 40.
7% from the free throw line, right at the same time at the same time, Our Day Barrett in that same month.
Now at the same month, I think it was like five games, whatever.
And that same month, R.
Barrett attempted 3.
83 pointers a game, and his his conversion percentage for three pointers was 42.
1% from three right people who say, Well, R.
J. Barrett can't shoot.
That's just five games, Whatever.
All right, So, um, in November in November, R.
Barrett shot 55.
6% from the free throw line, so he approved 15 points, 15% points from one month to the other.
Right? That same month, he shot.
13 point in the game and hit at 30%.
30% is not good, right? The next month, December R.
Barrett shot 63.
6% from the free throw line, so he improved 8% points from the previous month.
So from October to December, R.
Barrett increased his free throw percentage 23.
6% points, right The next month, RJ, based on January R.
Barrett, shot 74% from the free throw line, right? So from October to January, R.
Barrett increased his free throw percentage 34% points, right? And in that same month, January R.
Barrett shot 35% from the three point line.
All right, so here is the the line of demarcation.
R. J. Barrett hurts itself in February.
Right High ankle sprain.
Everybody knows it now for those for those that say, um, Uncle Frizzy, don't make excuses for R.
When you hurt, you hurt, right? So in February, R. J.
Barrett free throw percentage dips to 54% from the line, right? And his three point percentage dips to 25.
9 in that month.
Right, Martin? Uh, and march.
He took you see? And I'm sorry.
In February, he took 4.1.
See, that's the problem.
That's that's his free throws now, right? All right, three because 3 20 that dropped.
That dropped to three point with him in February.
That dropped to three attempts a game.
Yeah, that's the February.
That's the month he was hurt, right? But in March in March, R.
Barrett shot 33% from the three point line, 33.3.
5 a game, made 1.5.
8% from the free throw line, right, So the narrative that R.
Barrett can't shoot, I think it is one when you look at raw data, if you look at indices and statistics, if you look at his resume, his resume says, Basically, he's not a good shooter from the free throw line or from through be, but when you deep dive into those numbers and see where R.
Barrett was healthy, R.
Barrett started off in a weird, funky thing and worked his way out to the point where he got hurt.
And then once he recovered, he's still improved.
So what I'm saying is I said all that to say the arrow is pointing up on R.
Barrett ability to shoot the three pointer and to shoot free throws.
Right? That that's all I'm saying there.
I'm not justifying those low numbers, those numbers, all what they are.
But I'm saying, What if you look at those? If you take into account you know what happened during the course of the season, then then you could at least say that there's some promise that there are months, which R.
Barrett shot 45% from the floor.
That's the same is Donovan Mitchell.
And after the All Star break, R. J.
Barrett got to the free throw line 5.
5 times a game, Um, and shot 75% from the three from the 75.
8% from the free throw line on 5.
So for those that say R.
Barrett can't shoot, I think what they need to do is just look at at the numbers over the course of the season and look at at instead of saying he can't shoot, just say he's an inconsistent, streaky shooter, is what what I would say. R.
Barrett is right now because there was a month where he shot 42.
1% from three and a month, where he shot 35% from three.
And then there was also the month when he was hurt, playing on a high ankle sprain when he shot like 25% from three.
So even if even if that was just his average, his average on the season.
So even if he shot 30 I think it was 30% 31% from three, which was the average.
I think that number is overall three point percentage would be somewhere around 33 34% which is almost near league average on three point attempts.
He he's capable.
I mean, he's shown stretches where he could be okay, shooter.
I don't I don't think there ever be a Chris Milton or dead I but he's definitely capable.
Um, he's another player that I think it's not about, you know, his ability more so it's really about his decision, like what shots he should should take, right? E think I think he gives average of 35 36.
I don't think the body will be great.
I don't think he'll be shooting six or seven threes a game, but I think he could be taking three or five point game.
She's 35 36% which is respectable for that.
I think that he he's definitely someone that they can use is a long term peace so way.
Definitely the next do they're gonna help them.
Or they're gonna put the bombing pants that you gotta be the guy.
Yeah, right, right.
I'm with you. I I wanted Thio.
I wanted Thio break down those numbers because because I think sometimes we unfairly, um, we unfairly judged a player's season off of final status and even And I know it sounds like I'm talking about the both sides of my mouth like you said his he is who his numbers say he is.
And at the same time, I'm saying, you know, break those numbers down and get some context To what, though? Why those numbers all the way they are.
Um So I wanted to look at Kevin Knox also, Um, but I also want that you want to talk to me about the mountain draft.
So what's good about the mock draft? Well, more so a kind of a model Kalamata off.
So tell you what I'm gonna be Leon roles.
You were quite west.
So you in my ear.
So if I do something that don't make sense, you could tell me a Leah that don't make sense.
Right? So right now, if nothing changes, the Knicks have one away 10.
5 million against the cap.
So the first thing I'm doing and it really hurts me to see it is a limo body.
So I'm taking 15 point.
It hurts. Crusty.
You know, I'm the last person you want to say that, but follow.
But But But for what reason, though? For what is it a basketball reason or a cap? Reason it is both is both because I'm confident that I can pull off certain moves.
It's almost set him free.
They don't go play for continue, right? Next person from 73 said Alfred paid free.
So that's not yeah, by l and also just hurts kids gonna be mad at me.
What I'm saying Tired free.
So that's another 9.4 million.
So the whole column making next is I'm calling New Orleans.
And I'm telling Mr Griffin, I tell you what.
I got a kid right now the best shot blocker in the league to switch and guard any defendant.
He's got the greatest three point shooters in the game.
Scared to pull up from three making 1.
He's from Louisiana.
His mama still lives that she just had a baby.
He would love to come home.
So what I'm gonna give you I'm gonna give you Mitchell Robinson.
I'm gonna give you frighten me looking.
It's another unselfish guard that could make his open threes.
To find the open man gives you the opportunity to increase the load anxiety to increase the load on man hating, receiving the VP level guy.
And also create more shots for me, Smith.
But I know you like me, Smith as well.
So I'm gonna give you find me looking and Rachel Robinson in exchange for Lonzo Ball all and Jackson. Hey.
So the question that you would ask is Okay, Well, why would you want to do this? Really, for the reasons that I said you gotta You gotta play this comfortable.
Mitch is going home to his own environment, The ultra productive.
They got the minutes to plane.
Um, I think they have a better fit defensively toe alive.
I in the wrong foot.
Three of the four take risk.
You know, try to make big plays, get out of transition on the defensive end.
Um, you get your losing monseau.
But you're picking up a capable guard.
They can do some of the things.
Maybe not as good.
Ah, higher level.
But he could be confident and he can learn withdrew holiday.
So these air moves for the future and win now, and they'll help you temporarily for your cap.
Right? So that's the first move.
E would make the reason the Knicks were like movies.
He really improved three point shoot.
He was writing 38 cents last year on a pretty good, violent way.
All know that he's one of the better playmakers in the league.
He doesn't have a vision that Melo has, but he's got good vision.
He's got a good ability.
And the boys already one of the best defenders in the league on we know you love.
Yeah, you say it.
Then we get Jackson Hayes was a kid.
That is over Atlantic.
You got good touch.
So he may develop a decent shot.
And if somebody that we can bring them slowly So the second column meeting.
So that move would put the Knicks in right around 75 million against the cap.
What about lions? Those extension now we're gonna We're gonna get to that.
OK, Are the next move on calling calling Chicago.
So the offer on making Chicago is Julius Randle, Kevin Knox, Wang Ellison on a and it's thanks for that.
You're giving me my go to God? Exactly.
I mean, and I take that young for two years because he could be a serviceable big on the team.
Right? So while Chicago do it first thought you may say, is no way.
But you're getting, uh, not a premium graphical choice, because the draft is not that great.
But you're definitely getting your hands on Tyreese Halliburton, Gillian Hayes, and yet the Congo.
You may have old topping that you're going to get a decent player with that pain.
Plus, you still have six.
So if you want to take the eight.
And I'm sorry, the Fort Pitt.
You want to take the baby before you want to try to go up and get all, however, or it was You could do that.
Or you can have those two, you know, good young pieces to your court.
Then on top of that, you got a pro's pro and Wayne who you could GMP him if you need shooting off the bench to bring more *****, you got guarantee production and Julius Randle, Billy Donovan play Randall up.
Get waiting for them in the four or five whatever.
So they don't talk about you get a young kid or not, who who was shown enough upside toe where teams should still spend time, wanted to develop them.
So what New York has made into the building is a bona fide first option.
Something had says Melo was gone is a guy that his game his game travels because he can shoot, finish playmate.
He can play above the rim.
You can finish below the wind.
He can knock down free throws. Three.
You could take me through it all.
So let me let me let me do my let me do my world wide west right here.
So if you bring in So if you bring in Lonzo Zach Lavine, who's gonna start it before for you and who's gonna start it to five? Because I don't feel like Jackson Hayes is mature enough to play the B the b the starter yet.
So keep in mind, I still have 27.
E still got 38 I'm still going right after this movie.
I'm still gonna have museum Umbria.
I'm still gonna have 24 million capsule.
So what we could do West if he wants to.
At the four spot that is not completely watch, he's still shooting about 36% from three.
You're still shooting 48 9% of the film.
We can play that or if you want, we can go get apartments side.
You know, sign A.
Proven that to play before I prefer.
I prefer that I prefer that more.
But my only thing is is that is an undersized power forward.
Um, that regardless of the matchup, he could get his own against any power forward in the league.
We don't know how it is like watching T j Warren.
You don't know how this dude's gonna get it, but you know he's gonna get it.
So Okay, so what? What about what about seven Thailand based? He's there 27.
Is he ready to play? I like talent.
I think Halladay is the new Shawn.
Marion, I'm really high and real life.
And in this scenario, I think Talib A is the new Shawn.
Marion, bro, you know, you know, you hate to call somebody the New Matrix, but I mean, take, don't lie.
He's faster than everybody that he goes up against.
And he's got, like, this invisible strength, like you don't know how he's that strong to be his size and he's a super athlete.
That's an option.
That's an option of the fort, and he can knock down the three.
I don't nobody n b a range, but I know I'm kinda He can shoot the three.
So I mean, it's not probably gonna be there 27 him or you have Isaiah Stewart or somebody like that somebody gonna be available at the 27th paper because the driver is good.
If you mean specific things that just doesn't have those can't miss stars.
Oh, up and down the draft.
So that's the way I would say I would lean with the four position or we have We still have cats space.
We could go out and get J. Crowley.
You know, you wanna put like they, uh, with me, So that's that's actually as well.
So when it comes to five, I'm probably going to go out to Christian movie.
I'm probably gonna play him in the five.
The reason being is that we can completely spread the floor.
You know what I mean? The Onley questionable three point shooter in that lineup is our three, who was already married who run as the trees show he's.
He's projected to be a decent three point shooter, so the goal was an ended up.
I can't say someone anymore.
At the end of the off season, I'm running out Lonzo ball in my one.
I guess I'm gonna meet him.
I, too, I got really bad in my three.
A fair young before, and I got Christian with it to find I got Jackson.
Hay's backing him up still got management Jr on, see if we can get blood out of the turn up to see what happens there.
I could get a shooting within 38 people.
Somebody like Isaiah joke, Or I may want to take a explosive wing like cash is, um, standing, you know.
So I still got English prestigious.
I still got Kenny Putin to help on the details of man.
So of course that I have is that's just help Tom get to the playoffs in year one.
Mm, my Only I amen with Lonzo and Levin.
I think that's Ah, a dream type scenario in the backcourt.
Right? Because because I think that we've done, like, three things at once.
Like we automatically, um, improved shot making, right? You know, and I'm talking about shot making man.
I'm not talking about Just, um I'm spot up threes.
I'm talking about Lonzo Can can create shots for others, And I think Zach Lavine could get his shot any time he wants to.
And I think RJ, um, nothing.
RJ is trending in the right direction.
My only thing about R. J. Barrett.
This is my worst nightmare.
Barrett is not elite athleticism, and he got hurt last year and played through it, and he looked like a stiff right.
Are they legit? Looked like a power forward plan shooting guard last year when he was hurt on one wheel.
Unlike gods with ultra athleticism, if they're if they have a flat tire, you know, there they'll at least you know, look, average NBA athleticism.
Can you depend on that young to stay healthy, Right? And and And the other thing, too is is, um eso Who do you get to back up? Christian would when Would is not on the floor, because I think it's per 36 numbers to be great.
But if you're in that system, if you don't bring in somebody that brings something similar to the table, I think it may force us to depend too much on Jack Levin to carry the load.
Kind of like what happened in Chicago with marketing.
When marketing is not hitting, then what? You know, What do you have with Zach Lavine? So I mean, I like it.
Um, So what do we do with the other young guys? What do we do with, um D s J? Well, yes, they would be the only young guy left.
Yeah, he's the last young neck standing.
So it's Lonzo in de SJ at point guard.
So it's Zach Lavine, RJ.
See? Young would hes bay.
You still got bullet to? Yeah, I'm bullet.
So that's your back onto Yeah.
At 38 who will we get at at 38? I think we probably need another point guard.
I'm just gonna I'm gonna insert, um, one of the point guards.
My melancholy playing melancholy flame won't be there, Grant.
Realer is a Well, we're gonna start Grant realer.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, probably there.
He's fast too, man.
Devin Johnson is fast.
Devin Doctson is conduct like Not exactly Carol Lewis.
Um, I don't think that the three point shooting is there.
It may be I hadn't seen much, but I think, um, Devin Dotson is definitely a second round pick, man.
So and I say it like that to say, Don't expect much.
Just, you know, be a contributor.
Yeah, You never know.
Cash is Winston made fun? He maybe they're 38.
That's a Yeah, yeah, yeah.
That's not bad, man.
What do you think? What do you think about the line above Lonzo Ball? Zach Lavine, R J.
Barrett, That is young Christian would with the S J and Grant realer being backups Reggie Bullock, Talib eight and Jackson Hayes off the bench.
I think it's I think it's a start.
I think that's so time in the Garden, man.
Yeah, that's so time.
You know, everybody climbing course.
All I have to get some ankle weights or something.
So you get that speed up that way.
Got plenty nations shooting everywhere.
Yeah, I kinda I kinda I kinda like that.
Um Is there a scenario? And this is for for the helpful next fans.
Is there a scenario where the Knicks can trade for Devin Booker and be good? Yeah.
It's gonna be painful.
Is it worth it? Is it a cosmetic surgery or is it a new emergency? Surgery is the way you gotta look at it because it comes to me.
To me, it's cosmetic.
I don't believe in In and Devin Booker come into the garden of being a star.
I don't think he's impactful, You know, I feel like.
But what do you give up for Devin Booker? You can use that and build your franchise.
You know what I'm saying? I think if you're giving up too young players and five draft picks, I think you could just save that man and get your own guy.
Let me let me put it this way If you just look at it from a A raw productivity standpoint, right? Devin Booker himself gave up, gave a son's more officer production, then basically paying our Jake upon.
You know what I'm saying? Do average 27 seven assists and four rebounds, like so, Just don't have 27 7 assists that that dude's accounting for 40 points himself, right? So if you have a front office that's competent and knows how to build around, they start.
It is absolutely worth it.
Like if you tell me I get I'm walking into.
I got to locker rooms in the locker room, right? I ain't got nobody with that Booker and with devil, but I still got making cap space on my locker room.
Little that I got R. J. Barrett.
Whoever drafted eight.
Kevin Not then It's Nick Junior Frank Miller Kina in a 2021 grant, 21 23.
So basically 15 and 18 year old and the other, like one e wanted a black woman.
Booker, We're book around it, right? Certified bucket. Get up.
So if I ****ing get a facilitator, he is this close to me.
And James Harden is Khloe's being the MVP this close.
If he put up those numbers on a on A on a top three seed in the West, he's a VP candidate.
He is disclosed.
So if I have a choice to say, Okay, they this room full of guys over here and these teenagers, that ain't even made it yet.
They may be able to combine for what this one guy going to give me.
It's a no brainer.
So what's the But the thing with the thing that that that that shakes me with the Devin Booker thing and I keep saying these things that people think I'm down on Devin Booker.
I think it takes a special player to do 48% 35 you know, 36 37 38% and 90% from three I mean, from the free throw line is a special player.
But, man, I really believe in this cat.
I've been your Buddy.
Hill was a starter.
I think the reason why buddy here beefs is because he legit knows that he can be just as good as bad deal if given opportunity.
You know what I'm saying? And the reason why badly Bill has opportunity is because John Wall is not dead.
Bradley Bill didn't put up these type of numbers when he played next to John Wall with John Wall being absent.
Bradley, Bill put up these type numbers, you know, I'm saying, I know, and I know I know people are going to say That's conjecture.
You know what I'm saying? And all that stuff? But it's not those effects.
Yeah, here's the problem.
Somebody help comes to New York, he automatically the best player in the market.
And I say that way.
All honesty, he's gonna give you off the Bat Hall of Fame shooting like the Garden has never, ever seen gardening, never seen nobody to issue like my buddy year.
You're going to give you 2020 and 25 points four or five rebounds, 45 assists.
So he may not quite deep as productive this book of, but he's gonna be **** close.
But the issue is the moment that he has a bad game.
She was two for 11 from three.
These rowdy lie last Knick fans are gonna turn against you forever and all.
He's having a ball.
Oh, he's taking shots away from R.
So I mean, the question I apprehend is nothing about his game.
It's just that Devin Booker bring such a magnitude.
Plans got shut up.
If you have a bag, shut up.
You know what I'm saying? And that's what the right office coach has come in into play now, as far as a basketball fit.
If you just stick him on this roster, right, the same monster.
I think they could be a bubble team if you just take him even with Pavement point guard.
If you take him and stick him on his roster, that automatically puts him in a playoff.
I think I greeted here is, Is that good? He's good enough to move the needle, you know, five or 10 games for this team, you know with Virgin Terminal that could construct the defense.
So where he's not being exposed his only job.
Give me 25 e 20 five.
I think I think Buddy Hell with the green light is more than 25 a game.
I think bloody hell with the green light is 27 28 maybe 29 points a game.
And I think what, what you could do something that will be.
And I know that's probably like wishful thinking, right? And this is not like a weird Oh, he plays two k thing because I don't even have the new two K.
Yeah, but it's one of those deals where I feel like if we get buddy like Trade for Buddy here legit, put together a trade pact for Buddy Hill, something that's fair for both sides to get him and then draft me. Smith.
I think I think the world will be turned upside down in the Garden with him, with Buddy Christian Would and Aaron E.
Smith, Jae Crowder and a point guard that knows how to get everybody the ball, you know, I'm saying, I mean, I think he that's a lot of three point shooting.
I was I like you.
I will send both of them Dallas picks to get him because I think in New York he's an All Star.
Both of Dallas picks.
I was in both because wow.
Breaking news breaking, dude, would tragedy broke the Internet? Reason is he's gonna be all star from day one, right? He's a Hall of Fame shooter.
You know, I'm saying hey can be a true number one option, and then I'm gonna overload no shooting number eight.
I'm looking back.
Do I take to top military here? I don't know, but I'm going all in.
But I think that the moment, But he got off the plane, He's an all star in New York.
I would e would be I understand where you're coming from.
I would take 38.
27 D S J to move up to 15 16 to get Tyrell Terry and then getting the Smith at eight.
I mean, why not listen, man, No matter how athletic team is, no matter how how athletic team is, no matter how many all starts you have, what the NBA has created is a situation where elite three point shooting can deep any team, regardless of what the other team looks like.
You know, the three point shot is the great equalizer.
We saw it in college for years before a transition to the MBA.
You saw the Gonzaga's knocking, knocking off cats like North Carolina because the three point shooting, you know what I'm saying? And if you in my opinion, Matt me, there is no such thing as having too much three point shooting.
You know, I'm saying, especially when you know you have injuries that can happen.
Dude, go through cold streets.
You know? You know, certain matchups not being in your favor, you know? Yeah, I think you could do.
I think there That's a situation where man une Smith a buddy here.
And people think that need Smith and Buddy Hills are the same players.
The only thing they really have in common is elite three point shooting.
Erin, Nice Smith is a big dude.
Erin E. Smith is 66 to 13.
I think bloody hell is 64 to something, right? Um yeah, like 64 to 20.
Yeah, but he is a big dude.
He's just not exceptionally tall.
Right? Um I think if you get me Smith and Terrell Terry, the leaders on notice, anybody Hill and Christian would The leaders don't notice.
Let me say this.
If you put that shooting backcourt together, talk about a problem and eat because you got you got real, Terry, you got a bunny.
Hell, even my trade getting these live eight best Greece night, like are they should have a field day thing to do A fielding every day, every game, every game.
Right now, I do believe I do believe if you if you drafted Terryl Terry, you still need a veteran point guard.
I think you have to have one nowadays.
It's like even when Steph Curry was M v p, his backup was a veteran.
You know, I'm saying whether whether it was, um, Shaun Livingston or, um, what's the other guy name? The year old guy.
I forget his name, but but either way, man, you still need to have a vet point guard to back up.
If you wanna be a championship contender.
He had Jared Jack for yeah, together.
I don't think I don't think a bit point.
I'll be hard to find, but I mean the excitement that I remember.
I can't remember where there waas and may.
I think it was this year where we play the cave in the garden and Buddy, he'll have like 25 abs like this dude was pulling up from the Knicks logo just raining down three and what? Nothing we could do about it.
And I kept saying to myself like I'm telling people in the three to the trader for this dude two months ago and it was like it was like the first game and Luke Wall made him come off the bench.
That man came in the Garden pulling up from the ramp right and was in, and I kept saying, This is where the Knicks are behind because we don't have anybody that's even close to that way.
We were the only team in the NBA.
They had nobody shooting at least 38% from three.
Not 12 Like not the Onley team in the entire In beginning, they didn't have at least one player shooting 38% from three.
Yeah, everybody in your team below the league average hold to you? Yeah, right on.
And I said to myself, I said, Well, ****, Steve man said 96 at zero minutes, right, Well, and like human days is a perfect example.
If you look at human things like his second in the league, do you like 46? Second three.
But he wouldn't get out between when I was, so I mean, they took nineties.
Next, the heart man.
But the question I'm telling you now, if they block trade for bloody hell, we'll have a lot of people scream like, Great.
He's gonna call the Boston Project, I guarantee, man.
And you know what? Yeah.
So Rick pointed out that mugshot a high percentage from three and and what I think killed Knox was started out scorching hot.
He was leading MBA and three point shooting on a high volume of attempts.
High number of attempts.
And then, you know, slowly over the course of the season that did the number slowly crept towards the median.
You know, I'm saying so and so I'm not saying that that was the best three point shooter.
I'm saying that he was like um, scorching hot, like the best three point shooter in the league for, like, two months, maybe three months and then, you know, kind of, you know, kind of dip some.
So, E, go look at it real quick.
So Cuba Davis right, 94 95 shooting 45.5%.
Yeah, from three.
But he should have been hoisting five assists a game, right? I don't know, man.
The Knicks had to get with the times man way.
Keep saying that.
But there is no scenario where the Knicks are ever going to get with the times.
You know, we're the Knicks are as traditional as an NBA franchise is gonna be.
Hey, So Rick said he never dropped below third and then the as a neck.
Yeah, that sounds about right.
I thought he was number one.
The whole time is a neck.
I thought he was number one the whole time.
I'm talking about the percentage I'm talking about the percentage drop, and I may be wrong, but but I thought the percent and I'm not saying dropped light toe 40%.
What I'm saying is that I think he went from, like, 50 toe, like 48 to, like, 47.
You know, I'm saying something like that as the lead as the season went on.
So it was that 46% for a long time, Like almost the whole time he was up there.
Yeah, but I think that with him, it was a It was more of a was more of a comfort deal with marks.
You know what I'm saying? It was more like, Okay, I could get my I get my spots.
So and that's why I keep saying Came in You brain do what Marcus once did.
But the difference is you breaks 24.
You traded for you break.
He comes in like Mars, averaging 19 points.
Of course, the people that are big time, not supporters they hated.
But let's say we find way traded for you, but we drive down on gave Phoenix eight, right? And just say not.
Not that they would accept Not, But you say we get a not pretending you bring.
So if you bring him in and he feels like Morrison, he's averaging 19 points.
Privacy is rebounds.
The difference is people are gonna be saying, Okay, this dude is about to be a breakout star, right? You know what I'm saying? So I mean, those are the type of moves that I could election.
Look, they're taking our hubris has a health issue, but if he's healthy, he's involved.
But we got to start getting in front of these guys like I asked myself about.
Who is this year's Marcus Morris? Yes.
About to enter their crime.
You know, I think Christian would Is that cycle, Claire, you know, he's good is about in his prime.
If you don't get them now, you're probably gonna wish you get right, E.
I mean, I'm just looking at what kind of guys they could pick up that you could probably get on a cheap.
Now they may end up being border respect.
That's tough, man.
While I think about that, I gotta tell you something funny.
So why? Why? While while I think about that? Because that's a very tough question.
It's not like something that you could just So, um, I bought the Goto Verizon today, right? and I'm regretting dog.
So for one, um, you all know how I am, though I do not like spending money.
I don't I don't mean I just I just don't like spending money on unnecessary stuff.
You know? I'm saying I like to pull my money and do stuff, like, go to the auction and buy me like a car or to something that I could kind of go outside and put my hands on and fix it up.
Maybe, You know, I'm saying eventually sell it to a family or something.
Something, somebody. Young, either Some transportation.
So I looked at this iPhone, seven pro, whatever it is that I got on, like, ****, it is time is Tom.
You know, I'm like, I'm looking at it right now like I hate to do it.
So I go to the horizon and I walk in and I see all the light, shiny stuff, all of us so you can add to see your bell as such and such.
I don't like the bill.
I don't like my cell phone bill being $100 you know, because of a new device or whatever.
You know what? I'm saying I felt like if if I need a new device, let me let me put some pennies together and I go pay for cash.
You know what I mean? Like, you swipe the card, let me pay for it right now, and then I just get some insurance on it.
Make sure, you know, whatever.
So I don't do that.
I don't have pennies. Put back for home.
I got I got penny setback.
I'm sitting back pennies because I wanna, um um I wanna in case my screen in that port.
So I have a back porch, that screen.
So I wanna put pennies back so I can put, um, um storm windows and all that stuff in there and insulated and all that stuff.
So when family come over, you know what I'm saying? We have enough room for everybody to kick it or whatever.
So I go in, dude talks to me to death.
He's like, Yeah, you're doing YouTube, you know? You know, you do YouTube videos, man, check out this phone blah, blah, blah.
I'm like, **** it! Now he doesn't hit my He doesn't hit my sweet spot because you know I love because I love doing like these.
These chats with y'all.
You know what I'm saying? Like, you know, doing this stuff, talking about the Knicks and all that stuff.
So anyway, I go in, I buy the phone.
My wife is like Uncle Freezing.
Why, you mad? You don't want women and bought it? I'm like I know that.
So anyway, we're coming back home, were passing by the mall.
They have a fair set up mhm.
And the message is like, Oh, wow, there's a fair.
And I'm like, Alright, the old athlete has to come out.
And when all these teddy bears all before I go home, you know what I'm saying? All the dudes like dudes.
I hang with everybody.
Ex jocks. Everybody played ball.
Every everybody is, like super competitive, like my car faster than your car.
You remember that touchdown? Call that homecoming.
Remember that three? I hit against Myrtle Beach.
You know what I'm saying? You know that? That's what we talk about every time we get together.
Dog, I get idea at the film and I don't want nothing.
Dog like the little throwing, you know, you the three cans stacked on top of each other, Whatever my man is like, Yo, your girl need to bed, Uncle Freezing.
Not these cans down to get her bed.
What you waiting on? You know, I'm saying I'm like, man, you know how many beds you want She like, I can only carry two.
I ain't but so big.
Okay, I give you these two beds real quick.
Um, elephant, uh, cotton candy and one of them homemade lemonades, and we'll get out of here.
Don't I spend like, too much money? I'll put it that way and don't come away with nothing.
And then on top of that So I hurt my back at work, right? So I know I ain't abated.
Thio win the stuff like I want to, but I'm like, at least man, I'm uncle Freeze E Yo, people around here know me.
I'm ex, you know, superstar athlete for everybody.
See me, man, and be like, yo, you remember that shot against Myrtle Beach? Whatever.
You know, whatever.
You know, cats in Jersey City, But like, yo, I remember when you played for ****erson.
You put you put 15 points up on ST Anthony's, Man.
Anthony's had all these dudes.
They had Raphael at a sample I would block.
It was gonna Syracuse.
Yeah, whatever. Whatever.
When I tell you when I tell you that this fair Major Mansfield like old ass man dog coming out the fair with nothing but stuff that you paid for elephants is and lemonade dog onto through I'm to throw dog.
You know, I'm saying I'm like dog.
This is Uncle Freezing.
We talk about thistles, guarantee me this is money in the bank.
I walk in the fair.
They just supposed supposed just give me the stuff and not let me embarrass them.
They're like, No, you ain't gotta play here.
Get away from my booth.
You know I'm saying No, I go and I go, I'm embarrassed.
So not only did that blow money at the fair, I'll blow money on the phone right now in super hot, right? Super hot.
So anyway, I wanted to share that with you, man, because because I think I think sometimes we get a SportsCastr and we get straight down to the nitty gritty.
Can't just be like, Well, you know, Kevin not shot 77% from you know, instead of like, people not knowing who we are, like people don't know who would is.
You know what I'm saying? They see the baby and melt.
You know what I'm saying? People you know, sportscasting be like your would Is that dude that beautiful baby man? Whenever, whenever he disputed them numbers, he put the baby up in the camera and we just melt.
You know what I'm saying? So sometimes you just gotta accused.
But anyway, to your point, though to your point, though, about, um, the candidates, I think it would, I think e think it's Christian, would to be honest with you, I think I think Christian, what does that guy.
But the only thing, though, is what do you do with the glut that you currently have? Like, if you son, would you gotta play them 30 34 minutes, 30 minutes, Whatever.
You know, I'm saying and he can't be the backup because he's not coming here to be a backup.
You know what I'm saying? And then So if he's a starter.
What do you do with Mitch? I mean, I'm going right now, clean.
I got man, like, if we can if we could come away rap And this is what we stay at the top of the money, you could come away with the mellow or chilling eggs and at the top of the top, having a lottery in gasoline.
And my mother's opinion is it may take training immature, like Golden States that all they wanted for the second pick, Waas mentioned Frank, That's a done deal.
That's definitely yeah, Or because I've been looking on some water sites and I'm looking like their perspective trade with the Knicks.
Those are the two names that you're talking, right? Right, Mr Robinson.
So if they want those guys that Oh, my God, I'm like, Can you tell about my way? Right? E walk over broken glass came back, right? And I said that broken glass on fire.
I said that broken glass on fire and walk across.
And you know what I'm saying, E, I'm like, Okay, you want to 27 pick too.
Bam! And 38 1 38 to, uh well done.
I know it's not a star studded drinking, but I don't agree with people that say, Oh, they're in those stars in this draft I don't agree If the Melon ball Wiseman and Anthony L was from anywhere close to the feeling that we see that was a 3 30 price on like is like without question those who have stock attention and we started to see the Knicks in any trade back.
You're Wiseman and vomited in the next.
Of course, they mix may trade up trooping.
Nobody knows what they're gonna do.
And that's a good thing, because let's be real.
We live at the Not a lot of the Knicks were taking logic way.
Knew they were second r e.
I don't think that front office I wanted to be responsible for trading down past RJ buried in this draft.
You know what I'm saying? Even if whoever the yielded same thing with if we would have got Cam Reddish and the answer 100 or something like that, trading down from a a team standpoint, that's better.
But I don't think the Knicks would have wanted to be seen.
Is that team They're traded down, you know, from watching Barry.
So I mean, we knew what we get.
Especially when Barrett had hinted that he wanted to be here, like, two or three days before the draft, Like two days before the draft.
It was in the leaking in the paper that R. J.
You know, his grandfather grew up in Brooklyn.
His mother went to ST John's.
You know what I'm saying? All these stories? Like, if you remember the Knicks party and Kobe White.
And there he was calling the day before the drive.
I think Kobe White came the morning of the draft, right, and it didn't work out.
So I don't think he was ever like a week.
Right? But what's more so wild to me? Waas it? They were.
Are they told a story or mailing meals? Told a story about how RJ was over meals, house, Like the night before the drive.
They asked, Are you ready to be naked on? Okay, that's crazy.
You asking me this and I'm reading, okay? Drinking in Kobe white for a workout you're looking at there is gone.
And you asked me to jump on a plane and come to New York and music like That's the type of mess to the front office result man, if you go back previous.
We knew we were getting knocked, like, a couple of days before the draft.
Everybody in the next second dollars.
Yeah, before that.
Everybody being taken plan.
Okay, How? People want to say that, Like when you're that close to the dreams Everybody knew Frank was getting paid this year.
I don't get that thing.
Okay? Anybody knows what the Knicks are doing.
So I don't think somebody being this Michael's for no trade in front of us and take a killing haze or trade in front of us and take, you know, if we want to be I think that I think I believe when they say the Knicks and thinking about all the possibilities me personally of initial trade depends.
I'm afraid the oh, if I could trade to pick, to move down, team and somehow get you break, I will do that.
But I would I would definitely take a picture.
That reminds me of the trade that sent everybody off of the thread.
I said if you could trade R J Barrett right now and get over an attempt pit just for Arjun.
Would you do it Talking about Yeah, right.
You get you get somebody's gonna replace the score, replace the rebounding animal attempt pick so I could take I legitimately take I could take vassal, And I could take me Smith if I just want, you know, shooting You know what I'm saying? Or I can take a point guard, and then I can get a shooter, a team.
And I still got 27 you know? Or I can take them to pick and use them to move up to get somebody like so.
But yeah, everybody was mad about that, of course.
Like they were hot for days.
I think I said that I'm a Tuesday, and it was like a Saturday or somebody.
Somebody still talking about that.
I'm like, I'm still mad about that **** bro.
If you see if you see the comments section of that frank video, I did like that.
The your Lord and savior. Frankly, Latina.
If you see the comments, you'll be like, Hey, and he was gonna freeze.
You need a bodyguard? E feel like I feel like I need Kevin Costner right now.
You know what I'm saying? The way the way cast me, you know? I mean, I'm not trying to be disrespected.
I don't see the fascination on.
I think that a lot of his followers, all those younger Knick fans like the young dudes that feel like Okay, just do that baby face and he really young.
I could relate to him.
I think primarily his father was.
But I had I keep telling people this student has more Compton mellow, right? And mother was **** near every t in New York.
I'm telling you, bro man.
So So South South be shaved me on Twitter right now, South probably watching from a distance like, yo, just do Uncle Freezing.
All he do is say stuff to try to get people to come to SportsCastr.
No, that ain't what I do.
The reason why Do SportsCastr is because the conversations we had for the last three years, you know, I'm saying have people in that thread.
So we can so we can actually talk to each other about this stuff that we'd be saying in the threat I'm not slamming Frank just so that people can come to SportsCastr Dog That's ridiculous.
Is plenty of stuff to talk about is plenty of stuff to talk about.
Aside from Frankie Latina.
You know, he said he didn't think that you weren't oh being fair because you want wanted people that hate Franken.
I told I said, Yeah, listen, I said We'll freeze Is doing is bringing balance I said, because it was every other mixed media outlet album and with the exception of Sin said, If people go lean too far, one way with Frank, Simple step in and say, Hey, look, let's keep it, really he ain't taking you ain't many expectations And we knew he was the defendant in the draft, but he ain't improve.
His auction with deception of y'all to everything else is like I love Frank.
Can't trade Frank need the whole Frank.
And I'm like, No, I'm like, you know, if you give somebody a contract extension based on what they could do as opposed to what they have shown you already, you make a new state right, because you got to pick people based on their resume in real life in real life.
We pay people based on their resume.
And Frank, the Latinos resume doesn't have anything on it.
You know what I'm saying? And and South is gonna watch this one soon.
I say that like so what? I'm hearing you say that you could be like freedom.
Uh, Uncle Friendly hate.
I don't hate Frank Latina.
What I'm saying is, as the dude is not worth four years 28 mil, right, Frankie work that on Thursday, I think in ST.
Stayed in New York.
Knicks said we need to re sign Frank.
Five years, 50 million, five years.
What, five years? 50 email? Yes. Crazy.
I said why? But I'm like, I'm not trying to be an *******.
But why? Why am I side of him? Like superstars barely get five year deal.
Why am I giving him a five year deal like you tend to feel your salary cap? That's the type of smooth.
I mean, ah, well, young way with New York in certain players, I want to consider draft.
And the reason is is because I know they're gonna be a slow burn.
I was gonna take them a good Minuteman to develop, like Karen Lewis Jr.
He's the flavor of the month.
Now you've got some people out there, man.
Fans share Lewis union for years like they love him.
Been talking about him since he declared for the draft.
But like the sensational Nick Twitter right now, we need surely junior because because he's fast.
Okay, what on the n b A ready skills that he brings to the table right now.
Not something that I'm hoping he's gonna do in three years.
But right now they see it said, Like down shooter.
Is he a good finish your different and get to the free throw line? Not really.
Does he bring science in position? Does he bring south his position? No eyes.
He an elite passer? No.
The only thing The only thing, though, is is with Karen.
Lewis is his last 10 games of the season.
He shot 46% from three, right? So they say, Well, I'm freezing the last 10 games of the season.
He shot 46% from three.
And some as so That makes him the number eight pick, right? Yeah.
You gotta take him there.
s Oh, honey, you bash Erin E.
Smith, who did 51% in 14 games.
And so they're like, Well, it's not the same thing.
Well, you can't use small sample size for one guy is not use small sample size for another guy, right? I think the thing with point guard is, it is in my opinion, um, Killian Hayes has the potential to be one or two things.
He could be Michael Carter Williams or Dairy Williams, like, you know, And then people say, Well, he'll be somewhere in between.
Well, Michael Carter Williams started his career out on gangbusters and wind up never never progressing.
He basically is your 10.6.
If he starts, he's, you know, 11.
6 assists and and long on defense.
Deron Williams, on the other hand, gives you a different type thing.
But but Deron Williams also had probably the greatest point guard coach of all time.
And Jerry Sloan, you know, I'm saying so, you know, do the Knicks have Jerry Jerry Sloan type guy in the building? I don't think so.
You know, I'm saying, No, they don't, and I don't I don't know.
I mean Tibbs has always had a really good point on place, but he's also had a specific type of point guard.
And when I look at you know Caroline Junior and I was telling someone today they get they got mad because they keep saying what you're thinking a thing like like I would rather Tate, Harris, Halliburton and the guy said, Well, you can't just use one hit game I'm like I said I said Okay, I'll compare these two to Darren Fonts and John Marin.
I was at the game.
John Morant, Bus Cure.
Lose Junior. Ask for 38 points.
I was at that game.
When that happens, he couldn't do nothing with John Moran.
Now I understand Caroline She was a freshman at the time, right? Live and in person he couldn't do.
It was a different level of player hay eso I'm you know what, and I'll tell you this eso John Durant graduated with my son, right? And so they played in the same conference down here in South Carolina.
He played a Crestwood.
My son went to Darlington, right? So I saw John Morant in person twice, and the only thing I saw out of him was like a cat with some skills that couldn't put it together like he got to a loose ball.
It was a dunk at the other end, like Flash.
You know what I'm saying? In the half court? He couldn't do nothing except shoot the three.
But in the open court, he was dunker.
So I'm like, man, and that's just when I saw it, I was like, That's random high school athlete that ain't you know, saying that Special dog.
I see this dude three years later and I'm like, I can't even believe that's who that is.
And so and the reason why I say that is this.
If a dude under great coaching can develop that fast, there's no telling what John Moran is gonna be with great coaching because he legit went from random.
You know, high school coach at Crestwood.
Crestwood was probably like the fourth best team in our conference.
You know, I'm saying random high school coach to um Murray State and this dude is a star and goes to the NBA.
If this dude gets elite level culture, I believe this dude, maybe top three player in the league if he gets to in the league, Coach, Does Carol Lewis Jr present that type of upside? I don't think so.
I don't think something.
Hey, but what? I want to say something else, too.
So we're coming up on on the on a three hour limit.
So if it cut off, man, I'm gonna just dip for the night.
Yeah, matter of fact, matter of fact, because I gotta I gotta go pick up.
I gotta go pick up, baby boy.
Um, um I'm gonna say this, man, I gotta work tomorrow, but I'll be on tomorrow night.
Um, what I wanted to do is run over, um, draft scenarios.
I don't want to stay on for too long tomorrow night saying it's going into on Monday, but I legit wanted to talk like draft scenarios.
What is the next? Do it I'm talking about if we have to draft guys and we have to draft eight if we have to drive 27 if we have to draft 38 I want to kind of go over that with everybody.
Everybody in the in the chat, man.
