We're gonna talk about basketball, man, But I know, right? Anyone not, man, I really appreciate you guys were popping on tonight, man.
So the topic of the show today is we're gonna be talking about who are we getting into 2021 draft? Because, you know, apparently that's what the Knicks do.
Waiting for the next draft waiting for the next person to come on.
And, you know, let's talk about it.
Let's talk about being losers for a whole season to get the 2021 1st round pick because you know, that's what every Knick fan wants.
That's what everybody are believes is the best way to do it.
Let's get popping right.
Let's talk about being losers for for a year and not doing anything. No development.
Just wait for Just talk about us.
Get Mikey or whatever the hell these kids names are nowadays, you know? So, yeah, barely.
Listen, man, I've been, you know, you know, it's been slow next news.
So I've been watching.
Listen to a lot of pack.
Listen to a lot of people talking about the Knicks.
And one thing I keep seeing that's always a re occurring is the fact that every Ah lot of these guys females keep talking about you know what? Hey, man, let's you know, let's just listen, man.
Next year, 21 21 21 draft, it's gonna historically great.
It's gonna be all these great players gonna be Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson.
All these were gonna wait we're gonna take for us is gonna take another season and wait for these players to come and say the next.
And apparently that is like a very, very, uh, kind of steam I'm seeing with all these people is that they just talk about losing talk about, you know, waiting for the next pick, waiting for the next pick.
Um, and it's just like a never ending thing with the Knicks is about, my lord.
We just gonna keep losing and waiting for the next guy.
And I'm just I'm sick and tired of it, man.
We talked about it before.
We have this loser mentality and these Hey, what's going on, Kev? Hey, guys.
How you doing? How are you? What? Good, Kev.
Man, first of all, Happy birthday, brother.
Thank you so much.
I really appreciate it.
Getting the 50 is, uh, is a blessing, man, and I pray that all y'all get there as well.
No, e oh, absolutely.
Years ago, five years ago, right? Yeah.
You're the same age as my brother, so Yeah.
Yeah, I could dig it. I could dig it. Okay.
What's up? That's something.
Happy birthday, man.
But yeah, going back race.
Or just about you know, this this this mentality, little man 2021 is gonna be the year we're going to get these great guys.
Then you know what's gonna happen next after 2021.
I heard it's gonna be, uh, uh, Michael B.
Jordan's sister, brother, cousin, that's gonna be the next best thing, you know.
So it's like every year we go through this thing every year where the highlight of our season is the MBA draft.
And, you know, I'm getting sick and tired of waiting for that.
I wanna have, you know, start going to go with the culture and I want us to get away from, like, you know, worrying about lottery, pick up the lottery pick up the next day, and it's just like, ah, lot of these big fans Just keep thinking like, you know, once we get this player And once we get this, pick this certain pick that the winner's gonna automatically happen when we have been before that building.
These losing tendencies, these are these losing tanking tendencies and Then when we try to learn how to win, we don't know how to win.
So is this like something got to give and we got to get a lot of these Knick fans have to get this.
Probably wait for next year's draft pick toe be the one that's gonna save us.
You know, we need to be the Anthony Davis sort of LeBron James, or carry, we can't keep banking on it, you know? Yeah, I agree with you.
Uh, I say, um, Knick fans have got to get out of that mentality because if they don't, it's gonna be a continued, um, cycle off wanting to lose to get that top.
You know that that top draft which will will never get I mean, we got lucky last year, were getting number three, but it wasn't number one, Um, and tanking just for an unproven player who we don't know is going to be that well, they're labeled him as labor.
They're labeling that next player as the savior, and he's not Ah, lot of these players air just like pieces to a puzzle.
And you know, there's not gonna be a LeBron.
There's not gonna be a Jordan.
There's not gonna be, because he's not gonna be none of that.
These are just pieces to a puzzle.
So Knick fans have got to get out of that, you know, mentality.
I always consider it as if you're looking for that.
That's a losing mentality.
And I'm not with that.
I wanna compete, you know, and just go for the best.
So that's pretty much and you know what else it does? It discredits the players that you have.
You know, the young players that you have on the team.
I mean, this is you know, if you don't have a good team, you don't have a good team, and you gotta find ways to make changes to upgrade your teams, right? But when you're talking about, you know, guys like R.
Barrett, Mitchell Robinson's, you know, and you're constantly looking to say, but we got to go get another young guy, you know? They look and say, Well, what about us? I'm on.
I'm here for a four year contract.
I got a four year contract for a two years contract.
You know, you just you know, you just don't care about us.
Oh, you know, and obviously the team, you know, these air fans talking.
So it's not the team, you know? You know, the team will probably have some different ideas and how they wanna build.
Clearly, I think they do way.
We could talk about that later.
Too little We could talk about what we because we've all seen that too, right? So, you know, they have some different ideas on how they but what? We're constantly looking towards the draft.
I mean, everyone points to Philadelphia, right? Because Philadelphia what, you know, they were able to get basic, just were able to get Joel embiid.
Um, but it took for them to get to franchise players.
How long did it take on? And in order for them to make it anywhere with those franchise players, guess what they had to get free agents.
Every team is gonna have to get free agents, a franchise player.
You can someone turn that down in the background? Little bit? Yeah.
Sorry about that, man.
Do you have to talk on the show? Son of a gun? And there's no guarantee that those two franchise players, they're gonna remain there, You know what I mean? So you know, people appointed feelings, say, has it worked? You know, they'll say, Well, you know Phillies better than you know.
They're better than the Knicks.
You know, we'd rather have Phillies team than the Knicks team and this and that.
But I think one of the problems that Philly has had is because they for so many years the team was tanking even while they had Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
That team doesn't understand what it takes to win when it's timeto win.
They need players now that teach them how to win in a coach.
And I think that's what they're hoping to get in Doc Rivers and send this That teaches them how to win where, I think when you're you could start building those habits when you're really young.
The team should start building those habits when they're really young by, uh, you know, not see.
Like the thing like Philly was just blatant with it, right? They were blatant things is that there was no there was no, like we're developing this, that I think it was just we're gonna lose so we can so we can acquire talent.
They were blatant with it s So what do you think that does with the young guys? It's like, all right, they're trying to lose. Anyway.
No reason for me that prepared.
I know they're professionals, and they should do it on their own, right? But when you're talking about someone who's 1920 years old, uh, you know, they're gonna take direction from there.
They're gonna take direction from from your team, you know, because that's who they're looking at as the leaders e I'm gonna go.
I'm gonna come to Brooklyn and what e? Let me go, I say, First of all, I was thinking I was thinking You're gonna be talking about losing mentality off the players, bro.
I watch videos on YouTube.
You know, the disadvantages, the advantages.
Now you're coming up with just fans having a losing mentality.
So I'm not prepared for this? No, but to be true, I didn't do what Sims said.
Um, they have to franchise players, but because of the losing happening in the first years of their career in the Philly in the 70 Sixers, right for the organization, if you ask those guys if they have any tie to the team or the organization.
Like if you're gonna stay here to the end of your career, I bet both of those guys we're gonna say, Hell, no.
I'm going to just, you know, waiting for the contract to be up. And I'm gonna go to L.
I think if if we would do the same thing for a guy like R J that we wouldn't get him help.
It would be no first, consistently, the four years of his contract we would be sucking.
I bet he wouldn't feel anything that he owes us.
So he would be able just toe just leave us, you know, on the ice slide.
Like like everybody says, right.
If you're gonna have ah, player that see that you're investing, you're not losing your not tanking.
You know, sometimes losing is the step of the process, right? But not that you are tanking, so you know, everything comes.
You know, if they're going to keep the core players, the chemistry is gonna come.
You're gonna add a free agent here and there.
You're gonna add a player here and there through the draft and stuff like that.
So you see, that they're building.
And if he's the corpus core piece, it's a little bit on him.
But if he doesn't have any help coming from the organization, he won't feel that.
You know that that that tie with the organization So he's gonna be, you know, like, see like Okay, they're going their way.
I'm gonna go my way.
Guys, and that's gonna be it e think is gonna take a toll on every player.
So they don't care if you say, unless a guy is on Lee there for like, like, work things like like career.
Okay, I'm a basket player.
Whoever pays me more, I'm gonna play for them, right and get money.
But most of the guys, at least when they come into the league that their minds like I'm playing basketball.
But I'm also looking for fun, right? So it's a it's a dream job.
You get to play ball and you get to get paid really well for it, right? So we're trying to, you know, keep that dream alive as long as possible and get those, you know, opportunities.
Those gold medals go those championship brains and stuff like that, you know, later in the career.
That's why we see guys over 30 years old.
No going for ring hunting.
They didn't care about the money because they got a couple of millions.
No, they earned, you know, 1st 10 years on, then they know.
Just pick a team to get that ring so they can say, Okay, I accomplished this. This and this.
I played basketball.
I got the millions.
I did everything I wanted, right? That's a sees it as I see it, right? Yeah.
So, Guillermo, you know what you said earlier and just real quick what you said earlier, Andy.
Andy, Um, about about, you know, the guys not having ties to the organization because they see that the organization is kind of like they're not committed to them.
You know, they they wanna lose.
I feel like it's gonna be like that with Ben Centers, e.
I could definitely see I think honestly, something before GMO goes, I wholeheartedly seabeds and is going to the Lakers.
I think that's gonna I think that's gonna happen.
Really? You think so? I said, Well, it's crazy.
Remember Magic Johnson? Even though Magic Johnson was horrible, But Magic Johnson really like was like he was in almost in love with Ben Simmons.
And I think Ben Simmons has a lot of respect for magic.
And, of course, he you know, little LeBron's big brother.
So I definitely see, like, you know, once, uh, you know, LeBron gets probably to that age where you know, when Brandi comes in is probably gonna go wherever Brandi goes.
I can definitely see e definitely see, uh, been, but I'm getting out of here, you know? So let me.
So let me put you on the spot.
So since we're talking about this and our favorite person e 00 k e o e e a s what you guys were saying, would you would you say that KP had that mentality, that he didn't want to be here anymore? Would you? Would you say that? Okay, so I go first.
Then we could probably all answer this question with KP Me.
Personally, I think this KP was very tweeted me.
E o thing is not so you know, for me, with k p.
I don't think the situation was it was losing part of it.
to me a small part, I think when? KP.
Because if you see how the Knicks were playing, you know, when he was with Frank and we were building something way, we're building something and it was getting there, you know? Let's say let's say it doesn't snap.
Yeah, he doesn't stop his wage were we're looking at maybe a knife and eight seed fighting for it, you know? And then you know that year we can just go into the draft and we could do certain moves.
But I think what KP was to me again, I will always go back to him and his brother.
I think they it was more about they It's okay.
It's *** when you it's kinda hard when you know you're the man.
But you don't know how to handle being the man.
It's like he was really full of himself is like he knew he was the main in the next.
Like he Listen everybody, listen, I don't care what nobody says.
We all know at that time when we were having a little success with KP, he knew what it waas.
He knew when he was going on that eight game streak of 30 points that listen, he was in every peep.
He was literally talking about him being in the M v P.
Yeah, to me, I think KP read the news.
He was listening to all the stuff and he got full of himself, and he wanted more power way, bro.
But it's like Bro, especially with his brother.
We all know what his brother way all know what his brother wanted, What I'm saying.
So the thing that also her with KP was that this is what happens when you don't have proper direction on and leadership on the team.
Both on the court regards their players in in the front office.
Because I think the issue with Melo, um, the way that Phil Jackson stream Melo, the fact that players are usually gonna gravitate towards other players, especially if they are great players so called great players because guys, you know, grew up idolizing them but not get the chance to play with them.
They saw, you know, take it for what? It waas.
You know, I think Melo should have left when you had the chance, But he stayed.
And Phil Jackson, you know admittedly treated him like crap.
I think I think that KP saw it and he's seen it like, you know, this team is a sinking ship.
There's no leadership.
There's nothing here to really build off If they treat this so called start playing like trash on.
I know I'm good.
So why would I waste it here? So when people try to make it seem like a pieces victim, don't get me wrong.
What the Knicks didn't how to handle the past few years have been terrible.
But Kennedy is also at fault for the way you act.
You know, I mean, missing meetings and oh, are not going to the way he acted, you know? I mean, first of all, you don't want anything.
You are you basically our second half? I would say second half ghost, but because of your immediate issues, you know, I mean, you kind of fade away.
So again, you're talking about a kid as a teenager, who and again in our so called society.
Now, you know, the whole participation trophy people aren't really geared towards.
Let me I'm a win the championship at any cost.
Right? That intangible fire.
You don't see it as many players.
Now it's let me get this many likes on Instagram.
Let me get this big shoe contract and I'm good.
I think that KP kind of talked about like, Oh, I could do whatever I want.
I don't need a capitalist because again I use the example Michael Jordan.
When he got to have both team, they were trash.
I mean, everybody saw it on the last dance.
But everybody, you know, people want to know that Bulls team was trash.
I mean, full of drug addicts.
The stadium was basically all the arena was empty coaching step trash, and Michael Jordan took it upon himself.
Obviously, free agency wasn't big back then like that.
But, you know, he could have played the Barkley game.
He could have played that game where he's a nuisance and was this stuff.
But, you know, So for this this new draft man, you know people again, back to the original question about this draft.
I think the thing is that you got your experts and ****ysts out there, you know, I've seen people kill R.
Barrett saying he's not a star.
He's not gonna be listening at because it is if you look at his peripheral tearing that I might.
Guys, what you want from a rookie is aggression and ability, right? Or you want somebody to be assertive.
Let me say aggressive.
So you want to get the kinks out? I if I know that you're this type of blah blah, I want to see you shoot 37%.
I want to see you shoot.
As long as you are pushing, you're pushing the temple.
You're pushing to your skills.
You're not being timid, right? You're trying to get at me because we could work on the fish.
So with this draft and you're gonna get a lot of people, like all the next we got and think about Is that what this rappers that you gotta look at guys who compliment what you have and what could build for the future? Everybody wants to sit here and say O M P J Oh, my gosh, you know, estuary.
And it's like dogs.
If SJ came to this Knicks team, he would not be as good as how he did with a Chris Paul coming alongside.
We're gonna talk about that because I was going a little bit of a Yeah, I just It's just reading Cop To me, it's not just a common compliment.
Players, right, Whoever fits your philosophy, whatever you get that person drive, you can't drafted Kevin Knox.
Put him on the team and say, Here's the ball I go Play is Oh, but that's not his gaming right.
You can't do the same thing with Frank and not have it.
Where you having more off ball movement had a more pick and roll where he's used to that in France.
That's why when he played against the U. S. A.
Was like, Where's with Frank? Coming from it comes emulating like, Well, they don't run a lot of those.
Those are on the team.
What s what it is? Gilmore were frank.
They want him to average 2010 or 15 years.
Why do like Kevin? You know what to do that because they look at other teams.
They say, Well, Donovan, would you do that? Well, it's like Donovan Mitchell plans coming.
He plays on the actual team with coaching and complementary players.
For the most part, I mean, I know Joe Ingles had a terrible playoffs but Joe Angles and add, you know they got Bogdanovich.
They do things to say.
All right, here your strengths.
We're gonna get guys who kind of maximize those strengths, and we're gonna slow.
You work on your weaknesses on the side.
That's how that's how.
That's why certain guys like Jamal.
Jamal, Mark, if you came to the next Jamal Murray came to the next Are we showing? He's gonna be like he was in the Denver Nuggets.
I'm not gonna lie to you most.
Jamal Murray is on the next u E I would almost guarantee people were calling him a chucker.
He'll be because yeah.
Now, you guys, look what he has on that team he has a bunch of.
He has Yokich who can also take the load.
He has a bunch of role plays and Millsap and Jeremy Ground s So they're gonna be free agents.
Then he had a defensive guard or completing the slack.
And Gary Harris, you know, I mean so again, when people talk, this thing I get mad at is like, are you trying to build an actual cohesive team or you're just trying to build a two k roster.
Yeah, I mean that basketball is not to care on.
So this is why people I love the whole, uh, Butler thing, right? Because you know, I'm on this Twitter or threat, whatever.
You know, stay in New York is a smooth to stay in New York, but he's like, Oh, man, I remember back there, then you said, But what I said, no, no, no, I never said but was not gonna be good.
I said the thing with Mueller's that he did not fit on that wolf steam.
I would play with Butler, but the way you're trying to read that team, it wasn't going to fit with the wolves.
And lo and behold, it didn't fit the wolves.
Hey, had good numbers with sixes, but they didn't keep him right.
He goes to the heat.
What, did he have a perfect team for him.
The G owner, GM coach all clue to each other.
On that comes down the Bella, who has a mindset of all three, and we have a bunch of young players who were playing ball around him Right now, people say, Oh, we should have done with the Knicks.
You guys really butler? Okay, You gotta Jimmy Butler.
You got a guy in Steve Mills who doesn't know basketball whatsoever.
You have an owner who doesn't know basketball.
Y'all name duck coach. Let's be honest.
He's most like I said, looking at you guys.
It was saying, Hey, this dude physical, Mr Coach versus trying to tank because what's gonna happen is gonna be a lame duck coach next year.
What happened? He became a lame duck coach, status laden coach.
So you racing have a culture is trying to basically welcome, you know, someplace blah, blah.
But it's not really work for the team.
So Jimmy Butler comes to this team, right? There's no leader show up top like the heat.
There's no leadership, really are.
There's no, there's no players that probably really fit of style, right? Who you gonna make that next team like the heat team? This, I'm saying, is like we have a bunch of people into that and Twitter who just like they think that everything is embassy to carry.
They could go back at revision.
You can't build a team that way.
Yeah, I think you know, just going back.
You know what you're talking about with tanking.
I think that the the Knicks just have to build a team.
You know, Not constantly.
Look for that savior.
They just gotta build a team and let it develop naturally.
Let it grow naturally.
Put energy into the players that you have the young players that you have put energy into.
Those guys, Um, and then, you know, and try to do the best that you can tow win basketball games, right? You may not win basketball games.
You know, you may not make the playoffs, or maybe you fight for an eighth seed.
Whatever it is, you take it, and then you go into the draft and you say Okay, you know, this is what we have.
This is what we're going to try to get.
But you don't build that type of mentality with your young players.
Now is gonna hurt you later.
You know, build a team with these guys.
No, I agree with you because you know what kills me? Some also just want to talk to Andy.
Dropped the roads. Bomb Dallas.
Uh, Dallas has been Steven.
Is that the black guy that was coaching Luca doctors.
I don't know if that's the black guy for local doctors, but he is the head coach of the Rockets now, so we're going to see So that's 80 a 80 words.
Even scythe black guy or I don't know.
I think so. Yeah.
Anyone's chance, bro.
That's cool stuff, you know, But anyways, right, so it's like, Oh, my God. Almost lots of questions.
No, not let me drink some water.
E just go When he runs out of stuff to say, he goes straight to the water.
You don't know this straight.
You have to hold on your arm to man.
Fix your fix your face, man.
Look at this guy like this guy. No.
So But you know what? Be funny.
Those simple ones I could hold.
How do we see it now? Right? If the Knicks actually build a team this year, hypothetically, let's say we build a team and we win.
They're gonna be a group of Nicolas.
What are the Knicks doing? They would they would do this to 20 that you have the 2021 drive to get a team that wins to get the fight for the agency.
They would do this.
You gotta have people that's gonna have to say that the same old it's gonna It's not gonna be just the thing is gonna be people in the media to It's gonna be like, Oh, well, oh, well, next they're gonna they're gonna Of course, they would wanna win when they could get our top 10 or top. So you pick.
Of course they would do that when it's like, Yeah, but go back to the go back.
This is things water, right? As much as I like a guy K.
Cunningham, people have to realize that's why the media, they're clowns for the most part, right? High school mixtape.
High school game is ah lot different from the college game, which is a lot different from the N B A game if I sat here and if people wouldn't wouldn't believe this, but the camera dish that was in high school, you don't think that this dude is one of the like? We are what happened to camera dish? Go watch my monks.
A mixtape from high school? Yeah.
Minute fastbreak catching people.
Yeah, and you're looking at money now I'm not talking about you came a week.
I'm talking about a month now and you're like, What does that move from high school girls? So everybody who's out on the Monte Bates are green and all these people k is like guys you can't visual.
It's stupid to try toe predict or try toe tank for next year.
That's why I hate the whole physical tanking thing, right? You know what you have now? If guys you might find a gym here, you might find that you have a deficiency here.
The best thing for you to do is find out what you have.
So then you can mix and match.
You take guys in.
You make guys have a bigger role here and there.
They get me up to it up to your standards, and then you go into next year.
Now we know we're going to draft this.
Look, if you can't get a kid Cunningham, if he doesn't fall to us, fair enough.
But we need a We need a big man who could space the floor.
We need a guy who could run the floor.
We need a four who could block and defend wonderful.
I mean, we have some talent to shoot the three.
Now we know what we want to drive next year.
If we don't get the BP a available, that's how you ability.
That's for the Denver Nuggets.
It with M P J P J.
You could argue with a luxury pick at the time and look at him now in the playoffs, right on the same.
So it's something that that that issue may be an issue because I think it's congenital or whatever.
Like his just as the same issues, whatever.
But at the same time, Look, they have guys like Ah Bobo.
They have guys like M. P.
J and these guys.
You can sit there and argue that they don't need picks or whatever.
But again, proper team Bill allows you to pick luxury picks that you can stash for a year and say we're developing on the back end.
You know, I mean, so many people on Twitter.
We gotta get cake cutting as much.
I like him. We may not get him kicked.
You might do a busted and lady, remember what Drafted from Duke from Chicago Black Draco Wiggins E Yes.
What is this guy's name from Duke, right? The big man from you.
More not open for play like the four, because shoot computer was number two Oregon.
Oh, just the whistle.
No, no, not just a month ago by Parker.
My partner was like, the next thing coming gory about use.
The next thing come looking now.
Is he on the team? E don't know, man.
Injuries throughout throughout the year.
Right? So you can't You can't.
You can't bank on, you know, a kid doing, you know, many high school guys, number one and all that stuff.
I mean, you just can't do that if you look at Denis his case, because when you look at Denis Smith Junior High School, you would think he's you would've thought he is the next best thing.
But again, um, again, right, it just just just the second toe.
These Sometimes he's losing teams that they have these losing mentality.
Like, for example, the Sixers.
You have the Sixers to me, had a very long losing mentality that kept drafting over drafting.
And then you had you know, it's crazy. One second.
I don't know if they're blatantly trying to lose.
I don't know about them.
They don't know if they were blatantly trying to lose, right? E think it was just batting and right e.
It goes against what GMO was saying about organization.
Their organization is is crap.
You know, I think here's the thing as a, you know, you were talking about if the Knicks when, you know, try to fight for the HC.
You know, people would be complaining.
What are they doing? Why they, you know, giving up the 2021 draft pick positioning in those types of that type of stuff.
E think a lot is going to depend on what the salary structure looks like for the Knicks at that time.
Well, now we've seen that is gonna is gonna be low right now, e.
Well, I mean, just overall for the from the team standpoint.
You know what the salary structure looks like, You know? Do they have you, too? Have maneuverability, right? Flexibility in their cat.
Do they have young players plus assets? And do they have players? Were on contracts that, you know, our team favorable.
Uh, well, right now, you know it's created right now, right? So you know, So when you look at the entire picture, if the Knicks are fighting for eighth seed and they still maintain that flexibility and so that they could make moves later on, then maybe some fans, fans who were under no, you know, your casual fans probably don't care anyway.
You know, they're just casual, But fans who want to know what should you would hope, understand, like okay, they're fighting for the eighth seed.
Plus, they have maneuverability.
They have flexibility.
They have the ability to make moves in the future to build with this core.
You know what I'm saying? And then maybe even move up in the draft if they have to.
If there's a player that they really like, because they have assets.
Eso You know, all of that goes into play when you're talking about building a team.
And hopefully fans will be able to see that if the Knicks put together a team.
Because what I think a lot of people fear is that they try to put together a team that's going to win, you know, making a seed or something like that.
And in doing so, they get that flexibility.
They give up on young players.
They moved, You know something or a lot of their, uh you know, what do you want to call it? Um, assets.
They move their assets, right.
And then And then you're stuck with a team of high paid, overpriced players that a mediocre and can only make the eighth or seventh seat.
All right, so what the Knicks gotta try to do the front office? They got to try to put together a team that is young, that can fight for HC but maintains flexibility for the future.
Right now that I have a couple of assets, In order to do that, you might have to trade a draft pick or trading young player in order to bolster your roster.
But as long as you still have some assets left a lot of assets left to move in the future, hopefully Knick fans will understand that.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I totally agree with with them And think about it also, you know, from what I see on Twitter, and from what I see on the on the Facebook pages for the Knicks Ah, lot of these guys, you know, like, um, gmo and I say it was saying they have that two K NBA two k mentality and don't realize what you have.
And if you build it if you build it, if you build it correctly, you say if you build it, they will come Well, they will come.
But we're so we're so quick.
I mean, they use the old cliche.
Well, we haven't won for, like, over, uh, you know, well, 20 plus years, it takes time.
You can't just manufactured, you know, manufacturing championship, Especially when you know, veterans.
A lot of veterans don't want to come here because, ah, distance that we have had Now, with that being said, I like what Liam Rose has done.
We're putting people in, um, in the right places.
The proof is gonna come once the season starts and everything, but But we gotta stop.
Knick fans have got to stop looking for the the easy way out.
The you know, the quick, You know, the quick fix.
You're not always going to get a player that averages 2020 10 and 15.
You're not gonna Every player is going to get that.
But you know what? It is okay for real quick before and he goes.
It's just like, Ah, lot of these fans want a 19 year old kid to come in here, have it all figured out.
Average 20 10 and, like six on good efficiency right off the back.
That's what a lot of like you know, it's crazy because they see they see the Luca.
They see the trade young they see, even though Trey Young struggled in the first half.
They see Ah, lot of these guys That's come in 1920 you know, and they just average these good things.
And it's like, Man, that's rare.
And you could look at this thing.
I just I just hate I mean Luca and Luca and Trey Young right? Two guys who put up big numbers, right? And they're like It's a terrible two cities.
One is on a terrible team.
His problem number one is on a, you know, put up great numbers saying he's on a good team, good toe upcoming team, and it's all about how you surround the player now, Luca.
I mean, they made the focal point of offense trade Young, obviously the point.
But again, just when these guys expect these rookies that come in and do this and that, and I just think it's just impatience.
I just think, um, you know, they allow again.
Look, I can't blame Nick Fence because we've been, you know, you've been supporting a team that's been terrible for eons, you know? I mean, so some of his frustration.
But you know, when it comes to the ****ysts and stuff, who should be doing a better job? Obviously we know why they're doing some of these things is for clicks next for clicks where you want to call it, but they're not gonna They will be the same guys again.
You know? R J. Barrett.
You know, 27 All Star Game.
I mean, on the rookies versus sop****res only talks about Ida says the All Star Game. Whatever.
RJ bad put up all those rankings for rookie, but I Oh, he's not Zionism and its like dogs.
Einen is 2 96 6.
He may never be healthy enough to play 82 games e again, these people are you know, they don't a lot of people, honestly, that we don't know about basketball.
I'm not saying I know you know any of that stuff.
I'm going to hear that talk about the next day legit.
Do not know about basketball.
They do not legit.
I remember to this day, Stephen A Smith was clamming for that defender that went to Charlotte.
He was on Tehran at one year.
They went to the players.
They did really good and got a conscience.
Oh, Carrie, I think No, no, no.
Guillermo on I'm like, huh? E o next one.
Make something should about business beyond I'm like dogs.
What the hell is this guy talking about? And this will be on Bo outside of one year.
Went on to show that he was not that type of player like he was not.
This guy was gonna come in and change and learn often, so I said no.
So, again, e, don't even get mad when these guys in the media talk is just Is this for just? It's sad that these guys were Knick fans, whatever.
And because, you know, James Dolan doesn't give them special access to the back door so they can avoid the normal people.
Like I agree with, You know, they get all mad now. You know Frank.
I saw everything is negative on the Knicks and these things off course rash.
And I'm not saying that Praise the guy.
But when you look at the team, look at it objectively.
Look, it okay? Has a true how they truly built around somebody blah blah.
OK, not have been on R J The thing, my arches That RJ may never be a superstar.
RJ may never be a big time stop, Period.
The thing about our Jane Doe is this mentality how he acts and you can see leadership traits in them.
The fact that this guy cannot shoot You don't hear about RJ the clubs, whatever you didn't hear about R J R.
J is in the gym at 7 a.
He doesn't leave till five PM or so sick crap like that was working on his jump shot.
We're gonna just give me you're gonna freeze out the vocal type, which I think you will be a vocal type.
All the players, they're gonna gravitate towards that like yo, you do is in the gym like that, man, I gotta get this do and they might.
Now when we get rid of some of certain veterans.
Right then the youngest kids coming doesn't want a planet that everybody know our JSA leader.
Then you've got people who are James mentality.
You might be better, RJ, but they'll follow under R. J.
You know, I mean, LeBron James is better and Dwyane Wade that Dwyane Wade was the leader of that heat team.
So again you build not with just talent, but you build with mentality.
You build with temperament, you build with style of play.
Once you get those things in order to trust me, Bulldogs with 32 33 the way they're gonna drop and build around it and give you guys who follow under that butler kind of mentality and you're gonna get that's how you sustain first type of legacies.
Where basically, Tim Duncan, those guys in I'm pretty sure that Tim Duncan.
I mean, he's there now as like a coach, but that Tim Duncan mentality that general mentality is still there with Pop.
You know, you can keep drafting, build your pedigree with the guys, get yeah, I mean again, I tried to keep going on, but just think about teams is like two kids like video games to them, man.
But before, before you go and the one quick one thing.
But what you're talking about, Guillermo is what we always say.
Culture the Spurs, You know, the the Patriot way, the spurs way, the heat culture, all these places where you know where, No matter what, we're going to stick with the way we do things.
No matter how bad it looks, no matter how crazy look, no matter how somebody says it looks and the outside and the inside, we know what we do.
We know how we're gonna operate.
That's what to me, it is about culture.
And that's what to me right now, I'm hoping this is what Leon Rose and the Knicks are doing.
So you're already Yeah.
Um, I'm totally going to you guys.
I'll add to your last you know, words about culture.
I think its culture and system when you look at the Spurs, those guys could put in player x x x 93 with that skill set, and he would perfectly fit as long as he's gonna know those four or five plays they interchange those guys they had Ginobili they had built in l a couple years ago.
You know, they interchange those guys.
You would never know that.
That's another guy.
If you wouldn't wouldn't recognize his face, right? He played totally the same game and, you know, and and added the whole things that pop wanted for it toe at the same point when when he was talking about flexibility and stuff like that.
I'll add that you also need flexibility in, like, the locker room way you need young guys.
Bet you need to know those those guys to mess up.
And you know, those vest toe teach the young guys.
How how does it work? Because having like, 14 guys young on on the roster, it's not gonna work because, you know, one is gonna have a stupid idea there is gonna follow with, right.
You're gonna have that vet when you're gonna have that vet.
That's gonna, you know, take care of the guys and say, Okay, we don't do it like this when you go, you know, to L.
We don't go out, we play a game, then we can go out and stuff like that, not the other way around.
Meanwhile, you know, young guys gonna go in and and they're gonna be no playing video games later tonight when they're gonna have a game.
You know, early next day.
Oh, a real quick I had.
I think that's a reflection of the coach at the time and who was supposed to be the actual leader at the time.
Because if I'm the leader, I'm playing on the leader.
I'm like, you're not You can't be doing that tonight, man.
Game the next, You know, the next day.
But you know what it is, though.
Capital quick, which, you know, the great David Fizdale saying, Hey, guys like playing that for now.
You know, they like doing it fun, but you know things.
Why? I was really big.
Look at what I was really, really big with bringing back Jared.
Jack, Can I jump in there for one second? Just one second? Just one second.
Some things, though.
I think you have to look at it.
Okay? They have a game the next day. They don't play until 7.
30 right? So if you expect that they're going to go to sleep at 11 o'clock and then, you know, wake up at seven or eight in the morning, right? And still be fresh for a game that begins at 7. 30.
That's probably not gonna happen, because they're not gonna be that friend s.
So when you're looking in the n b A in times that they play, Um, just go ask a high school player that has to be the school at six o'clock in the morning and they got eight o'clock at night and how they feel and they don't get a nap or anything during the day.
Right? So when you're looking at NBA players, you know there's sleep schedule is gonna be a little bit different, right? Because of the time that they play now, they probably got to be in there for shoot around.
Yeah, they might have morning shootarounds.
Right? Maybe it's 11.
You know, maybe it's, you know, depending on what they're what they're, uh, transportation.
Time is to the arena.
So the sleep schedule is gonna be a little bit different, right? They're probably a little bit later.
So I would much rather have a player playing a video game to being out partying.
E rather have these.
I'd rather have these bums.
I'd rather have these bums a skewing and and not even playing a video like I don't know.
I'm old school, man.
When Jordan said it that, you know, some of these guys are instagram. Whatever.
And honestly, you need time to relax.
You need time to kind of decompress that self.
But if you're on a team that literally is projecting all you've been like 10 15 games, like I'm looking at every like my life will be 24 7 basketball.
I will get sleep.
I will get rest. I understand.
But other than that, I'm looking your what type of moves Can I still I'm a 69 forward west floppy feet.
I don't have any change of pace.
I don't have any change of pace skills.
I don't have any post up game.
I don't have nothing.
Besides maybe the three and the team needs me.
They drafted me.
Uh, just even a showing.
I'm not I'm not saying that to be a realistic, though a realistic that a player is just gonna be 24 7.
Just focused on that one thing.
Not one person in the world is like that.
You know Tom Brady Bill, but there's a coach Jordan, uh, interested in.
And you're not gonna You know, if you spend if you spend two or three hours saying I'm gonna do this, it doesn't mean that you're not working on your craft, right? E mean, you think r. J.
Barrett doesn't spend time doing other things? No, I'm not saying I'm not saying that.
I'm not saying that again.
I think you spend time doing other things.
But the thing about is that Thio like you hear about Knox playing video games till you know, we hours of the night and I'm just like, you know, you're if you're on a good team and you are also already and you know something like that, it's all right, Fair enough, you know, do that you have that leeway.
But I think we're in a team that's that bad.
And there's literally no one.
I'm kind of are, you know, not since most of his rookie year, but there's really no violent team that's really a leader, right? And you could step up it again.
Leadership also goes by example.
Hey, I'm not gonna be on the video.
Games are not gonna be doing this blah, blah.
We got more to do.
Blah, blah, right? Just being that type of guy where safe for a few months, You act like you're not doing your in your books.
Your your study blah blah for you to change your culture is gonna take somebody to take that leap right where your sacrifice and maybe your fun, maybe even your relaxation to go out and take that extra mile that extra step.
Hey, guys, look through a night practice.
Let's do a 12 PM practice blah, blah, blah.
I'm not saying he didn't do it, but just look at how the way they played and how they were on the court.
It seems like I would think that that was not the case.
So I'm not saying you can't be compressed, but when you're on a team that bad and you're not doing good and people are starting to hesitate or sign, I think maybe this was a terrible pick.
I think you gotta look at you gotta go about things a little bit differently.
You gotta take the Tom Brady Journal out and maybe, oh, you know, stuff like that gets put out there.
You know, this person did this.
This person did that.
What doesn't always get out there is when they are or when they have said, You know, I'm gonna go in.
Uh, I'm gonna go in at six o'clock this morning and work for three hours, and then I'm gonna go home and do this and then come back to the gym.
Don't work for three more hours.
You know what I'm saying? Why does it get out there That they play a video game or they do things like that? Because they put it out there, right? Or someone might see him online playing or, you know, or whatever it is.
So obviously, you know, those type of things Get out there.
You know, I'm not gonna discount that anyone is doing is not doing any kind of work.
I mean, I just know just I'm just speaking personally from me, right? I have goals that I wanted.
What? That I want to get to things and I want to do.
But, you know, I take my time to say, You know what? I've done this this, that and that.
And I'm chilling today.
We owe those that I want to accomplish.
It doesn't matter from an MBA player or not.
What Z n b d player If your NBA player there's those that I want to accomplish in my life, right? I have not accomplished yet, right? I have not accomplished them yet, But it doesn't mean that I'm just because I haven't accomplished it yet doesn't mean that I'm not gonna take my time to decompress my time to have my mind right and have my time that I say here is when I really focused on this goal.
I'm gonna focus on this goal right now for this many hours, and then I'm gonna do this.
I'm gonna do this and I'm gonna come back and focus on this goal.
Okay? When itself hard come, come into play here because I see what GMO saying a little bit.
Um and it's your crap.
And once you're in the n b A, that is your crap.
That is your job.
So you will want Thio be the best at the highest level.
Because at your age, your job and be you wanna have that self pride.
I think that's the the the problem.
I was having with Knox or any I don't know was it just knocks with this, um, a fortnight thing.
Or was it It was It was a group of a Okay, a lot of guys that MBA, who do I mean? Shumpert.
And like Stephen Jackson talking about, these guys aren't in MBA.
They're spending more time out.
I'm not saying Knox was doing this, but just for the simple fact that the NBA basketball for many of them, it's secondary like it's not even their first stop.
Anything about that again, It's one thing.
If you're Jamal Murray, it's one thing if you're LeBron James.
If you want these guys who are really good team and you're doing really well, it's another thing when you stuck and you're on a bad team.
So that's two negatives against you.
And again, the drop off okay, Kevin Knox is going to be an All Star.
Kevin Knox is gonna be a superstar, whatever and do this and we versus If Kevin nonsense and improved, he may be overseas.
He may lose his opportunity.
In the end, we know how ruthless the N B A could be after rookie contract.
So to me, I'm not I'm not saying you can't be compressed yourself.
I'm just saying, you up when you're building a kingdom when you're building a new culture, right, there are a lot of extremes you gotta take to make sure.
Okay, we start from up here.
So even as things kind of get, uh, what do you call like things? Dying, Newt, Like your culture, diamonds, whatever.
We still got our core tenants.
The thing with knocks again.
We see a guy like knocks.
What are some of the things that he's, you know, a cordis timid.
He's whatever apprehensive, kind of like you gonna show of himself blah, blah, right.
And I'm not saying you can't be compressed or whatever, but for a guy like knots, when people look at you like, yo, you're supposed to be one of the top towns from the week is whatever you know, maybe drop the video games maybe for the next few years, just focus on bass like look, keeping yourself because people are even questioning.
That is, that's where it's true, love.
And yes, I'm sorry.
I come from the old school where club was looking at a place like, Yo, you're not in the gym like me.
Bah, blah, Jay Williams said, is like, Yo, call me and starving What? I've seen this guy in the gym before me and after he was like, Yo, that blew my mind.
I think more guys gotta take from those guys, understand me? So Jordan, Kobe, Tom Brady All those guys are up there.
But Tom Brady again.
Look at Tom Brady.
Tom Brady, come from Michigan was a You could calm.
Don't say one, but he wasn't this hiding talented player.
He worked himself up Thio, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, all your best players.
Of course, they had their times where they, you know, straight focused on basketball.
And they had their schedule regimented out, regimented out so that they had their time to do whatever it is that they wanted to do.
I can guarantee you I I mean, I just think it's unrealistic that you think someone's gonna focus.
I want I want to say that I want to say this.
I want this before and he goes, Um, I love the argument, Guys, I love it.
I love the energy, but no no.
So, to me, right? I totally get both the sides right, because at the end of the day, I think what we do as people that's not in the league that way say straight up its work.
You know what they gotta do? This got a lot of these players Tom, baby, Michael Jordan, all those guys.
Those dudes are literally, literally the all time great.
So what they do and they're special and they have the mentality where it's like I focused on my goal toe almost 100% but like some said, they do take time to themselves.
But I also agree with Gamma.
We says people like Kevin Knox wears like, Do you look absolutely loathe what extra work they put in? That is the problem that I have with everyone, judging what they do, People take one thing.
You take one thing and judge that and not knowing what the rest of this schedule is like.
You go spend a day or week with that player to find, to know what their schedule is like before you complain about them doing one thing.
But no, maybe e o coaches might.
I'm talking about fans we say we we see these guys in one window, we don't know they could get up and they could work from 6 to 8.
And then they could work from 10 to 12 and then they could work from freaking two to four.
Have three workout today, right? Or they could say, You know what my schedule is gonna be.
46 8 to 10 at night.
You know, I'm saying, Z, that's what I'm saying.
We don't know what their schedule is, but because we see one thing, we assume that they're not working on their craft.
No, no, no, it's not.
It's not just Mock's, not just not.
I'm getting this from I'm talking about any way.
Let me just get back to my point.
So when I said with Stephen Jackson Shumpert, they were talking about everybody in the league, right? Not everybody.
They came out the whole week.
Not every single person, but what the wing is.
And when other fellow players they're saying there are only a few guys who are serious about their craft, and these are four players who know current players around them.
I'm gonna take their word for getting in.
I'm taking their word.
They say These guys are like guys who get believe they're not serious about their craft.
That's why you see the talented and they burn out because they're not serious.
So there's a final place saying that.
So you don't tell the former places like Well, you know, like, no, we do more, We do see them and they're saying about players don't play with every single player in the N B.
I just said I'm not talking about not talking about every single player But I'm saying that the climate in the N B A.
Is that a lot of young players And I'm pretty sure they're probably talking about the majority when somebody's talking about when Stephen Jackson talking about, They said, Ah, lot of the players do not take things seriously because I think Trump was talking about how you know players were taking out loans and stuff on their first contracts and getting broke after the stuff like that.
But you're saying those guys don't take this game seriously like that? Why these guys? They travel, they do the cracks, whatever and out there than they do in the Instagram.
They're going out there. They're part of whatever.
I'm not saying that's what I'm just saying.
There's a culture in the n b A and that's why again, e many guys in college, a lot of them are burning out, not actually just because of coaching, but because they don't take it seriously.
The craft isn't seriously them.
You're gonna, I guarantee you, even from Stephen Jackson's day before then, there were players in the n b A.
They didn't take it seriously.
That's why you have players.
You got Derrick Coleman that burnt out right s every generation and every single generation.
You're gonna have players that burnout, and every single generation is going to say.
But e think the point.
I think the point that the players are making was that it ZMA more now.
It's not that they want you never had players burned out.
I mean, Jr Isaiah, writer.
I mean, a bunch of guys MBA who I haven't really became like out of shape.
Couldn't you know what I'm saying? That it did not happen? I think I think they're trying to say that it's happening more so now because you have the explosion off social media.
You have ah lot of things, and I'm not saying they shouldn't look if you could build your brand or whatever.
But for again, a lot of guys that weren't about building their brand more than you are about the game of basketball.
That's why you have a you know, we could stay and argue that it's more of a poor school because you have a lot of talented kids coming from college one year or whatever.
Prep school, whatever.
Were they come in the game? Yes, many teams have terrible coaching, but a lot of these kids, they're not taking the crap seriously.
I mean, even during my don't seem I don't know, my time is really.
But Gerald Green guys were collecting 1000 speakers, and you even admit himself.
You guys like, Yeah, I wasn't taking the game seriously and I wanted to get traded or they push this scene and it's like, Oh, man, I really saw how everything flat my career flash before my eyes because I wasn't taking it seriously.
And I think now you have guys on social media, whatever and they're not even care about their craft.
E o contract e one day that you were gonna say, I'm talking about a few more things with the Knicks because it's still my show, dammit! Arguing to day month for me not playing.
But now we're gonna talk about you know, how we feel about the Knicks and Leon Rose in the contracts.
But I want to say this though, um, to me, this right now, the way the current state of the Knicks me the course of the n B A.
This to me is why is more important to have players like a Jared Jack? Maybe not a not maybe a Stephen What? His name.
But you have players like Jared Jack, you have those guys.
But you know, a lot of these teams now just transitioning toe having 14 guys that are under the age of 25 on the team and like, it's crazy to say that Randall and Bob reporters on veterans, and they're not even 26.
So it's like to me, you know, that's why I always That's why I was really big on the Knicks, keeping Jared Jack because I see what he did with Frank I thought he would have been really good for a team like this.
And this is why you get those 35 year olds, 36 year olds.
And that's why I think Taj Gibson is gonna definitely stay with us.
I think he's definitely stay with once once they once they we work that contract.
But this is why you have, for all these young teams that have all these young guys, you have a veteran.
You know, that can definitely help these guys out.
Would you Would you be opposed to having a d j.
Augustine here? Um, again, right? I don't know.
A man that stuff because to me Ah, perfect One again.
I'm always gonna go.
And this is crazy.
The thing is, this this is what really had me do this video with CP three because I'm not gonna name the podcast or the people that I was listening to, But there is this person on there talking about Chris Paul and then she uh oh, God said she.
But she was like, Nah, we don't need a Chris Paul.
What is her exact words were, And this is what really sparked me and I called sin.
Like the same day I was like you said she that Dad.
People empowerment, man.
She was like, she was like, Yo, what is Chris Paul going to do for the Knicks if he gets there? And what's the impact he's gonna have after, like, two years? And I'm ahead.
I'm like, Wait, What? Like and I'm like, Wait, wait, wait, Wait again.
Look, what I'm not gonna say no man's on the podcast that I was listening to, but I was just, like, Wait, that doesn't make any sense.
I mean, I don't care what people say.
Okay, let's just say hypothetically like Okay, okay.
See, win championships.
I can almost guarantee you during, uh, G A s final M v P speech.
He's gonna be like, Yo, this wouldn't have been possible without Chris Paul or the impact Chris Paul had on those young guys learning how to win the right way and having a CP three on here.
And like for people to even say that he wouldn't have an impact on a young mixed team, was it blew my mind, and it made me really have to do this.
Really, because I'm just like yo e I mean, he's CP three.
I mean, way See what I'm not gonna say? He's gonna do exactly what he did on the thunder, because again, we don't know.
He's always gonna be a one year older, but for him and teachers winning waves.
And I already seen it with us. Doing that with Jerry.
Jack have somebody like CP three on our team.
I mean, baby, hey had so much success with them, and he didn't have any success with the Rockets.
And it was so quick. Thio.
Well, you know, with I think with the Rockets, though it wasn't all CP three to me, right? It had it had a lot to do with style of play with James Harden and the style of play that CP three would.
I don't think you know.
I think you need You need his mentality and his leadership.
You need that Z like this? Yeah.
The Rockets might have stand stand a better chance against the Lakers with CP three than with Russell Westbrook.
Yeah, I totally agree.
You know, agree with that.
Okay, just show e.
I think you muted your e start calling and the ninja p man because e hold up.
It says, Ewan, you did your mic in the chat, But I still can't hear you with e Don't know what happened, e m.
I got some control in the show.
I ain't gonna say controlling, so I'm not gonna I'm just saying talking.
I couldn't hear you don't see him get the supercomputer.
He was a controller on these entropy, man, I'm gonna call Andy Ninja P.
That's your new name.
Okay, Come back again.
Yeah, we were talking before just to add a e.
I don't know if you recognize, but Walt Clyde Frazier e off times plenty of times on on when he was broadcasting green that, you know, maybe not that this is ah, bad thing, but for me, it was a bad thing that that when they are, you know, on the plane, he has a seat by him, side by his side, you know, open free.
None of the next players pop up to him and say like, Oh, listen, Mr Fraser, you know I saw you play.
What did you recommend for me and stuff like that? Just for that? And No, I'm not like standing between you and get on.
You know, the thing about the you know, the schedule thing, because I understand.
And some players need mawr, and everybody is different, right? So everybody don't play, they need more off time.
But But I think that the young guys now lack off that, you know, brain picking off the feds.
That's why when I would build my team, I would have a respectful, respectable, you know, vet almost in every position.
So when there's a knocks, when there's a frank, they have a guy Thio they take their brain.
And not only on things like on basketball, right.
They're gonna go to a family dinner.
Ah, family cookout, barbecue, whatever.
They can go into a strip club, right? Just to see how the guy acts, you know, they're going to see the thing, right? So, you know, just just a real thing, right? Because those guys probably never been there, then. Never.
No one let them in, even.
They left him in anywhere.
Both They e o e.
E a e o e o inside your house.
He's a little legend.
He was like, Yeah, because, like, no Derek Harper, we played a couple of years and stuff like that.
If I was a player, no matter how good I would be, I would love to have we no conversation with the guy once in a while, pick his brain.
You know about that game, whatever.
Just to have a convo with him.
Well, Andy, Andy, Andy to your point, buddy, Matt just said R J s our Houston for help on his shot.
So again, I'm not saying that it didn't have other players.
But, you know, I guess it's No, I haven't anybody else.
I didn't heard about RJ, but we Mac is knowledgeable.
He does go to the practices.
So if he knows what anybody else doing it, But it just seems that artery is that type of guy who take that extra step to do something like that.
Does he really go to the practices, though? Yeah, you know that.
You know why you know European player players have the fundamentals down really good, because when they have a great former player that has a great shooting stroke like Houston.
A coach brings that guy in, he shows it.
You get hit with a broom in your hands, if you should.
You know, what about S O? You know they don't play around e think about that.
Would be perfectly right with no, just the simple thing I told him a couple of years ago.
When? When I saw a video off.
I think it was July.
Remember seeing this when she was, she scored the game winning bucket, I think with the left, with the right hand on the left side.
Remember this? I told you that.
You know my coach, if there was a practice game, he wouldn't count that bus basket because I scored with the right hand on the lights, left side layer, right.
You wouldn't count that basketball, and it would be like, you know nothing.
If you're going on the left side and you're going for a layup, you gotta should do with the left hand.
That's the rule that they don't even kind of points in European for that in junior leagues.
So, yes, that's why you know, European players basically have both hands or and you know they know how to play.
You know, almost every position on the pork.
Uh, well, you know, it's been e mean.
There's a huge change when it comes to American basketball.
Now, where, like it used to be.
You know, if you're on the left side, you gotta go off of this foot. You're on the right side.
You gotta go off of this foot.
Shoot with this. Hand that hand.
Now, it's like, you know, there are no rules to it.
So you could be on whatever side and go off or whatever whatever foot.
So players practice going, you know, going off any foot on any side, getting a shot off with, you know, whatever hand you still got.
A lot of players, though, who are not strong with their weekend e.
I had a former, you know, player with me, uh, one of my, you know, guys that that was playing with me.
He was younger, like, two years, and he made it toe.
I know a prep school in the States.
Right? And he was coming back only back to Poland. Complication.
And he off course, you know, was coming back to our camps and and playing with us row after the second time he went, you know, he came back.
Our coach yelled at him so much.
What the hell is he doing now? They only taught him he was a portfolio, right? They only taught him as as long as he dunked the ball from under the basket.
You're gonna be fine.
And my coach, when he heard that, bro, he was so furious of him that he forgot almost everything that he and why college didn't teach everything right.
He talked to the fundamentals.
And from there on, you go ahead and use it, right? If you forget it, you're not gonna be playing.
So you know? And I remember when he came back, No, he was stronger and stuff like that.
But, you know, as long as the fundamentals go, he almost forgot everything in two years.
Well, see the thing about it and he just real quick I agreed to that fundamental important.
But, you know, let's be honest, Luca, I've seen with poor fundamentals make some great shots.
Uh, and when you got talent? Yes.
One of my other important in terms of discipline Someone.
You got talent, man.
Yeah, but you know how when you look at the guys, look how many guys and then be right, what? 350 60 on how many people are playing basketball in the whole world? A talent, You know, we gotta have the fundamentals.
And some of the guys are Onley in the n b A.
Because of fundamentals, Some are only because their athletic right.
Like a Tyler Hansbrough.
That that boy was he gonna play basketball? He was just, you know, strong and stuff like that playing a system.
He made it to the NBA.
He's not in the V now because, you know, everybody realized that he has, you know, the lack of skill, Probably on on thing that they were thinking that he's gonna be big about coach, you know? Okay, put him and, uh, with Coach K, I think right.
Hey, he's part of that patient team that knocked us out.
Yeah, e like, you know, like a book forecast.
E think what happens.
You know, you have some guys who you know, they don't really focus on the fundamentals and then advance to and then grow toe right they go when they start doing these advanced moves, but then they can't break down and just do the actual fundamentals of that move.
Because most advanced moves are just a combination of fundamentals Right on.
And then you have some things, you know that.
Like, for example, uh, the euro step is now a basic fundamental move.
You know what I'm saying when it never was.
But it's a basic fundamental move now to practice, Theo, You know, uh, and it like this.
There's a bunch of different type of steps that are out there now that you know, back in the day, you were used to just having your basic two steps to the basket.
You know, there's all these, there's a bunch of new.
I mean, you really got to stay updated on the crap because there's a bunch of new dribble moves and things that's out there that's legal, you know that you gotta work on, um, you know, with players, you know, and then and then focus on those type of things.
And then what happens is when players, you know, they put combinations of moves together and and when someone is really advanced.
It might look like, you know, they're just doing whatever, but sometimes it's, you know, a combination of moves or like Jamal Crawford, right? He's really he could issue some terrible shots, but he's really, really good at squaring his shoulders when he gets in the air.
No one talks about.
No one talks about to make to make those bad shots.
Right heel, come off.
You know he'll pull up on a off dribble, right that you're not expecting them to pull up and get in the air.
But once he gets in the air, just notice he'll square shoulders to the rent.
And then once he squares his shoulders to the rim, even though you may be falling down or whatever it is, it gives you a chance to really make a good shot.
So fundamental still come in play.
But you know what's funny? Some that I've seen the video I will never forget, and it's funny.
It's about Reggie Miller.
To Reggie Miller was on was on the on the shows One time he was talking about shooting, and he was like, These kids nowadays have the wrong idea.
You don't go outside.
Start shooting from the house.
They don't You don't go from the three and shoot from the three to be a good shooter.
You go from the inside like he was saying, like a zoo.
First you'll get like, you know, 2 ft away from the basket, practice a jump shot, constant, then move another 2 ft.
You know, get to the mid range, shoot that, get a learn to the long to do that.
And then, hell, I'll finally get to the three.
So it's like, you know, and it's so crazy now, right? So you literally see now these kids in the draft good three point shooters, but are terrible, terrible from the mid range.
Can't shoot, can't shoot the elbow jumper to save their lives, But they can shoot the three.
So I mean again, I know you're coaching everything, and I know like, you know what I mean and he knows done.
I don't even know any place. That's what Jesus Christ.
But, um, you know, e don't know.
We're best friend, you know, But, you know, But it's like we're talking about.
These fundamentals are so important.
And, you know, I think we all agree.
Can save a lot of these kids career because you have all these kids nowadays that, you know, they look at the carry carry mixtapes and Steph Curry's, uh, you know, doing the dribbles with his hands.
But they don't know that Curry started with one hand it was dribbling with, You know what? It was all these little things that a lot of these kids nowadays don't do.
Oh, and also, you know, to me and I know there's a whole different video, but this goes along with the au circuit, and I know so has a love relations because he's part of it.
But, you know, it's like a lot of these hope high profile ones really destroy the game because they just care about, you know, I'm gonna get the next I'm gonna be known The guy that had Anthony Davis, you know, with Entity Davis with Brian Williams. They were paying together.
You know what I'm saying? They'll have stuff like that when it's like you're teaching these kids from the minute.
I mean, they're facing little little thes.
These 64 kids are facing 12 year olds like you know, What I'm saying is like, no way could go down high levels of au.
They're not facing, you know, little kids.
But, you know, you still got coaches that, you know, they're just trying to put talent together.
They're not really teaching fundamentals.
They're just trying to put the best talent.
You have some programs that are really, really good.
You know, programs that really do focus on mental.
Uh, but then you got programs that air just put a talent together.
You know, in some how some way they're able to put the best talent together, and then they could get out there and try to get the shoes, sponsorship and travel and do all that All of that kind of stuff.
And the guys are and the kids aren't really, you know, learning.
Uh, learning a lot.
And as a matter of fact camera.
We were talking a couple of days ago about it and how the kids play so many games from a you level.
I mean, they start playing training at freaking three years old, years old, exactly, including eight.
Don't forget the Knicks.
The Knicks are looking at that eight year old and 2030 right? And then and then in the AU season.
I mean, just my teams from March, so August.
We play about 40 games.
From March to August, right? And then on the weekends.
You know, it's at least at the very least, we play three games on the weekends.
It could be it could be four or five, depending on what you do with the weekend.
We're no longer allowed to play three games in a day.
Oh, wow, that's that's nice.
If it's not a you sanctioned some tournaments still still do it N c double A tournaments.
They try to keep you the 22 games in a day, but you still might play three, right? Um, we love our kids.
And if if if you do it, they try to space it out.
But still, three games in a day is rough, usually usually in a weekend, some tournaments, most tournaments You're playing at least three games in the weekend.
Your big tournaments.
You're gonna play five games in a weekend.
And that that would be between.
Well, let me just say thursday to Sunday.
Right? You played five games Thursday to Sunday.
So Thursday night Oh, you might not play until Friday.
So Friday you play two games Saturday, two games, and then on Sunday you'll play a game.
And that may be a play in game to the to the actual championship bracket or something like that.
And then you still might have a game or two to play in the championship bracket.
You know, if you make it all the way to the championship, so there's a chance you could play seven games in a weekend.
You know what I'm saying on then They're traveling and I mean you're talking about I was in South Carolina one year with a team and there was it was an Adidas tournament, right? And, you know, there were a few different levels that you could go to.
We were like in the middle level.
I mean, we were super short team, but we were, you know, we were, well, feisty.
Um, one of the Massachusetts rivals.
That's the name.
They they're big au program, big.
I don't even want to au but travel program.
And I was talking to their coach.
He was like, Yeah, he said we were just down here last weekend, right? So they were in South Carolina the weekend before or two weekends before they flew back to Boston, played in a local tournament just so that they could support local.
Then they flew back down to our tournament because it was a huge.
There was a big, huge tournament.
Was John Wall Tournament? It was a big, huge tournament.
And then they were right after the tournament finished on Sunday, they were flying out to Vegas for another Adidas tournament cause we were all in the Adidas gaunt with right, So we all had some level of a sponsorship with Adidas.
All right, Uh, we weren't in Silver Gauntlet.
They were in the gold gauntlet, right? And so from South Carolina that day, they were flying.
Uh, Sunday night after they don't get don't get in trouble.
Don't get in trouble, right? They were flying.
I mean, to cut you off getting some, uh, I'm the man in my house now.
I'm not e s okay, guys.
I'm gonna get off. All right.
Thanks so much for the birthdays.
Thanks for all the condolences, and everything.
I really appreciate it.
Of course. Of course.
I'm playing e o trouble now, guys.
Alright, brother. Alright.
But But so they were flying to Vegas and then they were gonna play in Vegas that we're gonna be there for a week.
Then after flying in Vegas, they had a bunch of camps that they had to go to go through to the end of the summer.
All of the players go to, you know, different.
There's a bunch of different college campus stuff like that.
And then finally they be home e mean, you know? So for your level programs, I mean, some of your real high level of really, really good programs, they are doing a lot of teaching.
Then you get some programs that are just trying to throw teams together.
You know, I'm saying they're not really doing a lot of you know, they're just throwing guys out there on the floor on those type of programs.
You get players that bounce around from team the team and, you know, trying to find this team trying to find that team, and they're getting loops of coaching this team might have good coaching.
Uh, but this kid doesn't wanna be disciplined, so he moves to this team with his less disciplined on and and stuff like that.
I had a play at one time.
This kid, he still plays in the league.
This around here, right? We've got a pretty good league here.
Uh, that has, you know, pro players and this and that, and And this kid could have been he could have been in the NBA.
I'm telling you right now, his talent, his talent is just off the charts.
Hey, never played in high school.
If he would have played in high school, he could He could have did a whole lot.
He 64 He barely works out, but he's just cut from He's just straight up.
Cut is just all natural.
We're being practiced, and I have to tell him you're not racing against anybody else.
Everything is against yourself.
Okay? We do suicides.
He finished, we do 10 suicides. Boom.
He finished his 10 suicides.
Everybody else still got seven.
Still got three to go.
Right way, bank.
You know, do whatever push ups, whatever.
Do what we're doing with push ups, you know? I mean, he you know, he killed his push ups, and he just double everybody else, and it was all just natural.
You're from the country.
That's how the country straight kind of guy.
No, he's not for the country.
It was It was just all natural, right? But he didn't want to deal with discipline.
And he didn't want to focus on fundamentals.
He didn't understand that.
Okay, Although you have the superior talent, when you get to higher levels of basketball, they all got talent.
Everyone's got the talent.
Gotta have these fundamentals in orderto in order Thio deal with, you know, in order to play if he would have been able to stay focused, Yeah, he had some issues at home and things like that, but, um, e I don't think that had to deal with him.
It could have played some part of him being being disciplined.
I had to leave out of my house at three o'clock in the morning to break up him and his mom fighting in all kinds of jump Lord.
But, um, if he would have been able to be focused and really work on those fundamentals and was there with, you know, right now, he's probably 20.
I think he's probably 27.
Probably one of them is probably one of those dudes, like, man, I could have went to the N B A.
I don't even think he cares about that for riel.
E cares about that.
He plays in the league.
He plays in the league here, and, you know, he doesn't dominate the league.
But, you know, because like I said this, you know, former pro players in the league and stuff like that.
So he'll come down and catch a couple of dunks.
Some people's next, though, You know, four or five times throughout the league, Just you'd be like, Jeez, this kid is crazy.
E No People just like that, man.
Just like, why didn't I used to be me when I carried, you know E Okay, listen.
Gimme Gimme e got the sneakers right now.
We could go lace them up.
No, no, no, no, don't Don't even talk about sneakers.
You guys remember that video? We did.
You see the George He had on He didn't have.
You didn't have tape around the shoe laces, right? Yeah.
You know, the spread it top of the shoe laces.
That was all I was.
I was playing easy on.
Yeah, yeah, Jordan, She found on discounting way.
Don't even have those out here, brother. Anyways.
No, You bought him while you were here anyways, man.
Anyway, you know, just before we wrap it up, man, I just wanted the have a quick thought about I don't know if you don't know if you talk about this year s m r g m o r and D A Z.
We all know the Knicks have This is a report.
This has been a report from I think in ***uely that the Knicks are looking toe take on contracts, take on bad contracts for either young players or fix.
You know, again, if you guys haven't talked about it yet on your shows, where share some quick, or we, uh you know, only look at myself, my bad brother.
Only look at my show.
You know about it the other day.
E you gotta You gotta invite Mary, bro.
Even Andy Moon Andy Andy is in Poland, bro E, wait the NBK way.
Right, So you go on the and so you go on the network and you just pick out your shows even though you have to be Oh, wow, e But again, right this real quick before we wrap it up.
This, uh, how do you guys feel about it? And do you think it's a good idea? Bad idea.
Uh, e think that I think really is just a message he sent sending the message to O. K.
You know, we are willing to were willing to take We're willing to take Chris Paul's contract, but we're not trying to part with any serious assets.
E think that's the message.
Now that's not to me.
That's not to say that they wouldn't take on other contracts that are out there.
I think who we mentioned game.
I think. I think you brought up Al Horford.
Uh um My dear Ali, my colleague, Utah, I'll be happy with my colleague.
I'll be happy with my colleague Chris Paul Al Horford.
Why can't come anymore thinking maybe, but e think those probably are because those are the big contract that can actually contribute to a team like the Knicks with, in a positive way, purposes like all the other beloved contracts, like a something that was bad kinds of Eric Gordon or Blake Griffin or all those all those all those ridiculous contracts that are bloated in they don't really contribute to, like winning.
Um, really that much So like I said, I think you know, personally, I think like you said that some I agree with you, um, that wasn't open loaded, thio thunder.
Hey, I know you guys don't wanna pay your luxury text way.
Have cats wait to get Chris, Paul and, uh, let's take him or, like you said, the Gamma.
We can get, like a way can't get Chris Paul.
I'll be extremely happy with Mike Conley.
Here's the thing, though. Chris Paul.
This might be a watershed moment for the Knicks, because and someone said all Chris Paul is 35 30 60 comments and like okay, again.
Chris Paul is not a player who's game is predicated off of the athleticism A lot of it is, and he's been doing it since he was since he got drafted I do remember the days when Chris Paul could dunk, but we don't need him to come here and dunk right.
He's a heavy player.
He's extremely smart.
He's probably the best pure point guard.
And again when he's 35 36 again for the next two years, right? A guy who basically, I don't know, I'm assuming he started every game last year.
Outside of mediating back injuries and whatever you do, you have a long term injury. Last year.
I don't e stay put.
I'm not saying he's not going, but you have Chris Paul for 60 something games just to even see seven games.
Thio do what he did for O.
K C for the Knicks team to basically develop.
All right, here's a semblance of the offense that you can run even when I'm not playing, So he's gonna teach that to other point guard.
We have say we drafted care Lewis.
You drafted, You said, Even if you drop the killing here is that if he drops right, those guys and their development, you get to play alongside Chris Paul, right? They develop on Chris Paul.
Chris Paul's out here in two years, they basically take whatever Chris Paul taught them, right? They're gonna have a tune that's been operating through Chris Paul's facilitation.
They could take that and they could add their own skills to write.
Care loses really sharp, very, very fast, very quick killing.
It has a nice little step.
Uh, you can create little separation here, and they're motivated cemeteries.
But you could create separation here.
Here, I believe on the dribble threes or whatever.
It was like 41% of some of that, right? So they have their own special talents.
Chris Paul leaves those guys developed, and now we have, ah, Chris Paul infused or enriched player, and you have a semblance of the style of play that you want from the Knicks and Chris Paul's gone because Number Woman's coming to the Knicks.
Like in terms of these big free agent whatever.
Until we have a team that looks like a winner organization even just looks like a organization, period.
Chris Paul's gonna even credibility integrity.
Develop the players around you and get you wins.
That might have you stiff in the playoffs like that is a watershed moment for Nick's name.
The last time the Knicks had this opportunity where everything is aligned for them.
Team's gonna be are probably gonna be petting picture because of covert s stuff.
Right on, we have the second most, uh, second most like pro former cap space.
Right? If we agree, reject all the options and all the non guaranteed contract, right? I think we're second only to the Hawks, Right.
What is this moment happened for Knicks? When you get any start, I'm gonna say star, because I hate saying it like that, but a top level point guard for presented.
We need to come in and develop the place and play the high level and and pretty much and pretty much get him for nothing.
And they give you picked because I was trying to do for the bucks, right? The bucks have a bunch of contracts and people say, Oh, these books.
But the bucks are like, I think they're negative.
They'll be like they're like in luxury, I believe.
So if the Bucks So I Christmas has made, like, 37,000,033 million in 2024 27 something around that area, then you have guys like Bledsoe and in Brook Lopez, who kind of making like in a 15 raised like that blood blood.
Somebody being like, 12.
Brooklyn U E yeah, because he got extended, like, $70 million.
Okay, so he's making more, because I I read it today, but I just forgot all the other guys after, like, honest, But they would have toe.
They would basically have to give up a bunch of players to bring one point. Chris, Paul.
Would have to say, Well, they don't have to agree that they re building that.
We're gonna rebuild with blood.
Soren Brook Lopez? No.
So I can't see the bucks.
I just don't know how the money is gonna work, and the talent is gonna work for the bucks opposite.
The only honest to say they're gonna do anything to try to keep him, but okay, so would have to agree to that.
And I don't see that now.
If that happens and a bunch of teams can't make it happen, the Knicks could make it happen here.
You see, give us Chris Paul in the first round pick.
I'm just saying, man, I think There's a watershed moment for the Knicks.
If I'm the Knicks, I'm striking.
While I just don't want the Knicks to give up any assets.
Get my computer acting funny, I said, I just don't want the Knicks to give up any assets.
I you know, I can understand that.
You know, if there's something small they have to throw in there, I get it.
I just don't want him to give up anything major for Chris. Paul E.
Chris Paul here.
I just don't want him to give up anything.
Danger e before you before you go in.
I just want to say, like, man.
So if the Knicks this is my deal.
If the Nixon get Chris Paul for, like, Randall and maybe this year second and a Hornet second e think that's a fair trade.
I mean, okay for me, you'd have to do that trade, right? But a Zilong as I see it, if I go for Chris Paul, I don't give up Brandon because he can be used, you know, he could be used differently.
Use him and you know it's not like, you know, just three of when you think about it, right? He was a small right now.
So bad, because you e already heard this.
I've already heard this.
You've been you know, I know you're working double time, though, you know, Big shout out to you for that e.
Appreciate you, E Yeah.
So you know, e have you know him for, like, a Bobby Portis at when, Eddington And, you know, whatever you know, adding I would do it just for the, you know, development factor.
And and probably you.
If you keep Randall and the core off young guys and get a CP three, I think you know, we're gonna get closer to the playoffs than than we think e and e I I agree with you, Andy.
I would if if they're getting CP three, I would like for them to keep Randall so that they could play together.
I just you know, I don't know. I don't know.
Because of the way contracts are and how much money CP three makes, uh, maybe trying thio, you know, they may still want to preserve some cap space.
Uh, e That will help break character.
Yeah, it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me.
But, you know, I would try to maneuver the deal that way, you know, just absorbed the morning just out.
A good deal for them is also right.
Right? But, you know, by including Randall, then they can preserve some cap space.
You know, Thio, add some other players.
What? Mike Conley? I don't think I don't think it will happen with my colleague.
He makes 34 million.
That's the last year of his contract.
I don't see that Utah would move them.
They would just say, You know what? We made the playoffs with them. Mhm.
Let's what Let his contract expire, you know? And then we have $34 million to play things.
They should just hear some talk.
And this guy just runs over the, uh you focus on three point.
You think they're going to sell the team? Oh, yeah.
They are You available to get sold toe new, you know, company owner or whatever. Right.
So I think you know, difference month.
You know, something might change in you that, you know, I hope it's gonna be for better for them.
But you know, not always gonna be like that.
I was gonna say something terrible.
You're a Mets fan.
Jets fan. The next man.
You don't use karma in any.
E was hoping that owners, you know, they don't like a certain milk of people.
And they said, You got to get rid of Donovan Mitchell, a donor.
It's a damaged is Iron Man.
I don't know why I'm just hoping that Donovan Mitchell, but, hey, there have been ownerships that have done stupid things where they want to build something.
I'm not saying Raceway, but they just wanna build my name image and they get rid of a star player.
And it's like Mookie Betts, Mookie Betts, much water of world Siri's.
And can you show him that he should have been a franchise player for the Red Sox? And they said no.
It was like, Okay, so gamble, here's the thing right here and just got to wrap it up before this.
What do you think this does for Donovan Mitchell? Because he could be like, Oh, man, I don't know about these guys like they could be on something like, and I noticed hypothetically, but they could be like, Yo, we want to start from our own people for my own, Like, you know, our own home grown things and everything like that were done of image is gonna be like, Well, I don't know about these new owners, man.
They could be bad.
And you know I can Utah and it's like Who's coming to Utah? Especially with new owners? So it's like nobody was going to Utah regardless.
But it's now it's like new owners.
And I don't know, man.
Yeah, I don't know if the owners, I think the owner is probably we'll leave it up to the basketball guys.
You don't think they're going to step in and say No, you know, we want our own players.
I don't think they're gonna do that.
You know, Now they had a preference for certain type of player.
They could do that, you know, Um, but I don't think they're gonna just jump in and like, no, we want, you know, we want our own point guard, you know, because we got this system we want to run in that system.
We want to run, You know, I think they'll come in and say you guys do what you've been doing.
You know, you do what you've been doing now. Yeah, I see.
Simmer in The chatty said it depends on Mitchell.
Now, how does the ownership treat its players? Yeah.
How did they you know, how did they treat the players? Do they say you know what? No more food on the planes.
No more food in the locker room.
You know, you now gotta pay a dollar in the vending machine to get a soda.
You know, all kinds of crazy stuff like that than the places like, man, I'm out of here.

So oh, last but not least, I told implies there on the spot.
So I'm trying to make sure that Isaiah does this.
So whenever you have free time, I told Isiah to start up a cooking channel.
And I want everybody to embarrass Isaiah until he starts at Cooking Channel.
Because you've got a town, you got a skill.
But there's no reason why you should not be making videos where people could see you cook and put your talents toe work.
You could have easily have a challenge channel where you're cooking some tough groups, your infusion your humor into.
Instead of burning Simpson's down, you can have channels where you're trying to cook difficult mills and make people laugh.
At least let's see what you come up with that.
So if people in the chat or wherever you are watching us, if you could make Isaiah feel it like, make him feel embarrassed, you know, put the shame of them till he makes that channel got me.
So what's crazy is I was actually thinking the other day because I was thinking about just creative shows for the you know, my mom is right right for the NBK network.
