All right, ladies and gentlemen, we're gonna try to finish this one up.
Sorry about any technical issues, but we're gonna try to finish this one up coach's corner.
You know, my coach, when I was young, had all these technical issues.
I asked to go to another team.
Sorry about the problems, folks.
Sorry about the problem.
We're gonna have finished this one up.
We're talking about Mitchell Robinson.
And as I was saying, Mitch has been in this fun loving environment with the New York.
Next you go back.
Didn't play in college, so he didn't have any of the discipline you get in college coaching or or the systems that they have in college, then high school.
You know, he probably didn't get coached the way you would think.
Not that he didn't have a good coach, but it was by far the most talented, The best player on the team, you know? So we'll see how he's going to react in this environment in a more serious environment.
You know, I'm a little concerned about Oh, I don't wanna say concerned.
I just want to see how it's gonna be, uh, the next couple of guys we're gonna bring up aren't even Guys have really played on the team, but they should be on the team, right? Ignores brush deacons.
He's got a contract, so he's gonna be on the team.
I'm not sure about Iggy either.
Yeah, you know, he know.
Only positive words we can say about him is you know, he took the weight on on the G, right? So he panned out there.
You know, maybe it's gonna be like that so that he's going to stay there a little bit.
Um, you know, we're going.
We have to see how the roster is gonna pan out as long as these couple of hours.
You know, the rest of the guys that we're going to chat about, right? Because, you know, he's basically gonna be a rookie where he played, like, a couple of games. Five minutes.
So we didn't have us next.
Fans, you know anything to, you know, see, from magnets except Westchester next games.
So, you know, we can't expect much, though.
We gotta hope that you know he's gonna take that tough love off tips and, you know, carried himself well with it.
Yeah, and I don't know his personality Personality enough to know how you know Tom Thibodeau should address him or might address him.
You know, I just I don't know.
I don't know enough about him yet.
Yeah, you know, he's friends with R. J.
You know, they come from the same elk.
If you want to say so.
You know, if anything, maybe that's, you know, that's how you could take it like, yeah, you know, he comes from that same elk.
They probably had the same type of mentality.
Yeah, And I'm, you know, Onley thing that we can say that Probably he had a better coaching career path.
Then Mitch an example, because, you know, he went to college.
He played in the national, you know, the young squad, junior squads of the national team in Canada with with R J and with guys like that.
So they had one of the best coaches, probably from Canada and for whatever they have.
But those were guys were pros like, compared to make his coaches where he played only and, you know, in high school.
And we don't know the quality off the high school team organization.
And, you know, he didn't play in college.
Even so, this might disproportion between, you know, mentioning has long as you know, the coach player relationship, Right? Right.
Yeah, that good point. Good point.
He's used to the coaching, you know, when you talk about him and Mitch, he's used to the coaching, So, uh, we'll see, and it may help him.
Outlook defense has been.
You know, um, he's a little bit flat footed, e you know, only the spot minutes, right.
But I saw his feet are like he's moving like in mud.
Yeah, you got that, Sophie.
But you know, at least he's strong.
U S o you know that that might be helpful.
Eso, you know, being with tips and tips.
It's hard on hard on them.
You know, I think he's a guy that he might be a guy that can handle that toughness e.
I don't know much about him, but he might be that kind of guy, but tips his defensive a***en, his his want and will to play defense and push the team's towards defense can only help Iggy.
So, uh, Kenny Wooton, You know, I I don't know much about him, You know, besides what he could do on the floor, a Sfar is blocking shots and his athletic ability and those type of things.
You know, as far as how he would respond to tips.
Yeah, correct way as next.
Fans don't know.
We know the team throughout.
I don't think there's, you know, that many people that know you know these players better than us, too.
But, you know, it's it's hard to judge a guy, you know, before they hit the ground with the good this coach.
So right, So, you know, I guess we'll see.
Look, he's on a two way contract, so he's gonna be on the team.
We'll see what happens with the G lead.
That's gonna be interesting, right? What happens with the G League? So we'll see how that goes.
Um, does he have a chance of getting caught up to the Knicks? I really don't think so.
Yeah, I know he's athletic and even block shots, but I don't know what else he's really gonna bring to the team now, Guy, that could have a chance.
Is Jared Harper? Yeah.
You know, it also depends on on how the roster is gonna fill out.
But, you know, if you ask me if we're not getting a huge all star superstar point guard in, like CP three in my colony and whoever and if we stick with Frank and D S J.
I see that you know that life for Jared Harper to be on the next squad.
Maybe not getting much more minutes on the, you know, like on the court.
But at least practicing with the first team and you know whenever is an injury is gonna cure is gonna have that chance.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And as far as Tom Thibodeau, how toe approach him.
I don't know much about him, you know, to know what his personality is like on whether he can, you know, handle that tough coaching or not, he seems like the kind of guy that can Yeah, you know, it seems like the kind of guy that kind of reminds me of, you know, from things that I've read about him, a least that he has that type of mentality, like like like r.
Barrett, you know, And he's the kind of guy that Tom Thibodeau can, you know if he makes it all to the team that Tom Thibodeau can really, you know, be really tough with and be strict with and be blunt with and could just tell him exactly what he's thinking at that moment if he wants to.
And not just time.
To what about the entire coaching staff? Yeah, exactly.
And to disappoint.
Also where we can add.
No, things can adjust.
And he's gonna just toe the major guys on the roster, right? Major rotation players and stuff like that.
I don't think it's Maybe it's going to sound really harsh, but I don't think he's gonna have to care about Snow last guys just, you know, if he's gonna hunt, you know, 89 man rotation.
I don't think he's going to care about the 15 men on the rocks, E.
I mean, he's gonna care, Of course.
But, you know, I mean, like, Okay, maybe Jared, What do you want to eat for dinner? Right. I'm gonna bring it for you.
He's not gonna be that, you know, I'm expecting tips to go on these guys. Harsh.
And if they, you know, pan out, they pan out.
Next man up on and that That's right, you know, I mean, you know, those type of guys going toe, I guess you know he's not gonna make any exceptions like that with these guys.
I agree with you, you know? Now, this guy coming up, this the last guy we're gonna talk about, I think this guy, Taj Gibson, um, you know, he's definitely gonna treat Taj Gibson.
He's gonna approach him.
I don't want to say Treat, but he's gonna approach him differently than probably any other guy because they have a relationship.
And I know Taj Gibson could be waived, but I just believe Taj Gibson is going to be back, right? Because Tom Thibodeau was there.
I'm so sure I would be shocked.
I would be shocked if he gets released and picked up by someone else unless he wants it, because I just don't see it.
I would I wouldn't be.
You know, I would be pretty sure that when teams was taking the job, he said I touched.
Has to stay, and that sure of it.
Well, they got a relationship from Chicago, days from Minnesota.
So I'm guessing, you know, this is like one of the players in the whole league that tips has trusted s like the top five. Probably.
Except maybe, you know, like Derrick Rose. Jimmy Butler.
I don't know about Noah, but, you know, I think he's on the in the top five, certainly.
So I'm guessing this is gonna want that guy even if he's not gonna be playing him minutes.
You know, like later in the season.
Maybe I'm guessing he's gonna be playing minutes, you know, at the beginning.
But, you know, if Mitch is, Mitch is gonna develop perfectly under thieves and stuff like that.
I think they're gonna be no fine with with touch taking the back seat.
And, you know, maybe in the future, even being an assistant coach on the next under and I think he might approach him as if he's an assistant coach.
He won't be any coaches, meetings and things like that, right? He won't be in there, but as faras helping to spread their message to the players, right? I think Taj Gibson is going to be that conduit.
He's gonna be that guy.
You know what I mean? Sim.
I think I think he's gonna be like, What? What? Udonis Haslem is for the heat.
E I don't think you can say anything.
You know, closer to that, right, is he's gonna be that, you know, that guy, that player, that's between the players and the coach and no tell the worst thing that we're gonna happen, you know, behind its back.
And I think you know is he's definitely for me.
He if I would bet money that he's gonna stay.
I'm not sure. Yeah.
And I don't think you know, Tibbs is not gonna have to discipline Taj Gibson because he's a pro's pro.
He knows what he's doing.
He knows what to expect from tips.
You're not gonna have to discipline him.
You're not gonna have to push him toe work hard.
He's definitely not going to scream at him.
You know what I'm saying? Because that respect is gonna I mean, if he did some on the court that was crazy and the heat of the game, that's one thing, right? Of course, any coach is gonna no matter who you know, you're gonna yell like what the hell are you doing, right? Um but there's not gonna be He's gonna It's going to give him the respect of a man as an adult and problem.
And yeah, I think that's how he's gonna approach Taj Gibson. Yeah.
Unless about that screaming on the coach unless they, you know, play out a scenario that, you know, you got to screw up.
I'm gonna yell at you. So nobody says that.
We know we got, like, special treatment here going on.
Unless, you know, it's gonna be like the Tim Duncan Greg Popovich, you know, relationship on the court that, you know, Bob's didn't give any anything, you know, special for for anyone.
So I'm guessing if that happens, but, you know, I'm going to see right through it.
So they're gonna okay two games from now.
Just do something stupid, like, I don't know, hit the backboard from the site.
You know, from the from the line base, I'm gonna yell at you.
So just the guy, See? Right? Right.
So? So they said I could definitely see that happening, but yeah, Taj Gibson is gonna be his guy.
He's gonna be Tom Thibodeau's, uh, he's gonna be the messenger, I think, man.
Um, and I'm glad I like having Taj Gibson around.
You need a Pro's pro like Taj Gibson around and a guy that Tom Thibodeau can communicate through to the players because even having your assistant coaches, it's not gonna be the same because Taj Gibson is going to be.
You know, he's in the locker room with the guys.
He's out with the guys sometimes, probably not all the time, but, you know, maybe out with the guys on different events, eating dinner with the guys.
And he knows all the little rumblings of what's happening and what's going on.
Not that he's gonna tell Coach everything that's happening.
You can't do that because that will break the trust of the players, right? So you can't tell him all the little things happening.
But you can say not coach that might not work.
Yeah, or, you know, like this.
Players starting to, you know, ask questions, feel insecure and stuff like that.
Davis might have that, like, Okay, let me play him like one game to game spot minutes so he feels that he's with the theme instead of that, you know, they like, like neglected, you know, uh, attitude happening on the on the rocks, right? So and he's gonna tell him things like that.
You know, that's not on the effect that that are not gonna affect him or tips straight up.
But you know that, you know, he's gonna be that guy that's gonna see that, you know, whenever someone's down and you know, not only pep talk is gonna work, you know, Then then he's gonna, you know, argument who it would lives.
Just, you know, I don't knows and an assistant coach making talk to you or whatever.
So I'm expecting that role from from charge and and that's a huge role.
He can't forget about it.
The period this guy that I think was in that position, and not that I'm comparing to do because, you know, I know that that the fans hate him, but I think it was Lance Thomas on.
He didn't have the relationship with the coach.
And he had, like, five coaches and his, you know, 10 years with the Knicks.
So he definitely didn't have the relationship with the coaches like touch halves with tips.
Right? So that's gonna be under you know, everything and and not not gonna come out for sure, for as I see it, right? Yeah, definitely.
Look, yeah, Taj Gibson is gonna be important to this team.
I think the Knicks gonna develop over the next two years.
If he's here for two more years or something like that, I think Taj Gibson will be important.
Maybe not on the court, but as, like you said that you don has has some type of guy.
So there we go, folks.
