Sorry about that, everybody.
It was something weird.
I don't know what happened.
I think it was maybe some Internet on on my end.
I don't I don't know.
That was frustrating.
But anyway, next door back Friday.
Yo, y'all, come on back, man.
I'm still here. I'm back.
I hope I lose everybody.
Um, but I didn't lose everybody.
Eso We were having nicks memories.
Right? Um, talking about things that happened in the past.
Um um you know, um, the Jeremy Lin thing.
You and finger roll starts dunk.
Um, the Maurice and our, um, put back what's up.
Sorry about that, man.
And please insert your black internet.
What are you doing, man? Dog Dog.
Amen. I don't know.
I'm buying a camera tomorrow.
I'm gonna do this set up tomorrow.
I just hadn't had a chance to do it, but anyway, anyways, um, I don't know if it's just me.
I don't want to use the phone.
I just don't like holding the phone the whole time.
Yeah, your phone.
Your phone is gonna die.
Yeah, and then plus and plus the I don't really like the app, but because it's not really it's great, but it's not as functional as I like.
Um, but, you know, I just feel more comfortable with the camera.
No computers the way to go.
It's I don't know what what's going on with your Yeah, probably.
I think I'm I'm on this.
I'm gonna chromebook uh, and it's not as functional as the Windows products that I used to use in the past phone.
So, anyway, I want I want to get back to it.
Man, I didn't really want to get into current Knicks roster construction because we talk about that a lot.
Yeah, um, you know, maybe maybe too much.
You know, I just wanted to do the next memories and such, you know, saying throwback, you know, to some events of the past, some stuff that we generally don't talk about as often as we should.
Um, getting back to the Jeremy Lin, um, era dog it happened to be It happened like a wave.
Right? So it wasn't just like the game at, you know, the game versus the game versus Brooklyn, right? It was also the game winner vs Toronto in Toronto.
You know what I'm saying? Where it's like him lighting up the Lakers.
So it wasn't like like these one.
Yeah, it's not like one in every, like, five games.
It was like a whole Yeah, like straight games.
It was like a memorable night every night.
You know what I mean? It doesn't like Bernard King putting up 52 times in a role and then not playing another game for the next.
You know, I'm saying it was like Can Jeremy can Jeremy Lin legit, hit a game winner with Jose Calderon on him.
Who was called Arone with? Yeah, yeah, people.
People don't remember that, but called the wrong with somebody.
He hit the game winner in Toronto and half the Toronto crowd was like throwing Knicks hats up in the air, celebrating You know what I mean? And so and so like, people look and it was like and so the thing I didn't really take too back then was like, Oh, the Asian God have a hero.
I didn't really buy into that.
I'm like, Dude, if he can play, you can play.
Everyone was cheering from the They're lying if, like, they're saying, Oh, they're sitting there and be like, Oh, it was fake like everyone was cheering for it.
Like, because if we didn't go on that eight game winning streak or whatever, how much it was, we wouldn't have made the playoffs, Right? Right.
Wait, because because at the time at the time, yeah, the next we're, like in big ****.
At that time, they were, like, out of the playoffs at that time.
Yeah, and it was like we were basically like playing out the string, so to speak, like Melo coming and get his numbers and we'll lose by seven and everything is OK.
You know, I'm saying, Mario, be mad for a little while, you know, Put up 20 and 10 go take a wine bath and everything will be OK.
You know what I'm saying? And then Jeremy Lin, it's the game with in Toronto.
You know what I'm saying? And it's like you see, like, you could see legit see, like the next climbing this thing.
And yeah, and then later on, Jr signed with us and then Kenyan signed.
Yeah, what? We have made those signs if we didn't catch fire.
E think jr was like it was either us or the Clippers, so yeah.
No, it was also the Clippers.
That all right? Either way.
Either way, Um so So how do you times I feel when the Knicks got the number one pick in the draft and we're going to draft? You know, I wasn't born yet.
What? You said the number one that was gonna drive for Patrick Ewing.
We was due for a turnaround, right? It's terrible for so long.
Like it is like now.
Like history repeating itself.
Way due for another You in man, right? Yeah.
I have a lot to you, man.
Won't lie to you when I found out.
Um um, because we went So we was I was outside playing, playing taps, right? And so dude just wrapped him.
He was like, Yo, the Knicks got the number one pick.
Spike Lee said and he was like, going on and on, like the number one pick.
We've got the number one pick.
Yeah, I was like, Yeah, and eso back then.
I had this dope starter jacket.
It was a Saint John's jacket.
Right? And I just knew the Knicks is gonna take Chris Mullin, right? Because that that was the word like this from Brooklyn.
You know what I'm saying? He wasn't ST John's.
You know what I'm saying? So I'm like, yo, this dude scoring like, 38 game.
This dude is like the new Larry Bird, and that s so and so for some context.
Back then, centers were good, but if you didn't have, like, a jab, all you know, I'm saying, then you were, like, you know, whatever, right? Hey, thanks.
Coop for that tip.
So, Coop, tip 10 Thio tickets.
But but if you didn't have if you didn't have, like, a jab, all you know, I'm saying you was like, you really didn't have a center.
Really? Because Elijah one really wasn't that guy yet, But Larry Bird was cooking everybody.
You know what I'm saying? And I'm like, what the next get their chance to get a **** Larry Bird.
She I mean, I know Pat was good.
It was good, right? I just didn't know how good he waas because I was You know, we and you know, we in the tri state area, This dude playing in D.
You know, I'm saying, even though he was in the Big East, you know, we see, you know, ST John's games coming on Channel nine.
You know what I'm saying? Sunlight, man.
We're gonna get Chris Mullin dog we're gonna and everybody's like No, they like a of a free Z dog.
I know you love Chris Mullin, but Pat you on the truth.
I was, like, way got Bill Cartwright.
Why we need you on when we got Cartwright.
You know, I'm saying this is my night.
This is my non entity, you know, because I was a shorty when Bill Cartwright got drafted.
You know what I'm saying? Because when Cartwright got drafted, it was like the next was like, Yo, all we need is a big man, and we're gonna get back in the playoffs.
And I was like, That's how we need.
And I'm looking up to, like the older dudes.
I'm like, That's all we need.
I'm like a shorty, like 10.
I'm like, Yo, that's all we need is a center.
And there's a young we drafted Bill Cartwright and I was like, Yeah, we're gonna win us a **** chip, buddy.
We're gonna get us.
So this is a dynasty right here, man.
Caught right ass.
But anyway, we got the hat, and I was like, Yo, we got pet, but we ain't got no **** guards so that we basically started from scratch.
The guards we have all of them was like Daniel Dotson for some context for everybody.
All the guards you had back then.
Everybody was a dot You know, everybody was like, one night they could go up to 20 but they can't score 10 No other night.
You know what I'm saying? You got Trent Tucker's Lewis oils, All these dudes.
So we get packed.
I'm like, yeah, he a piece.
But we need some more, you know.
Well, well, well.
Back back then, you you always took the If if there was a good big man and a good win, you always took the good big man.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So? So you started to build your team around around the center first.
Now is like is flip.
Since they phase the center out, it's like it's like you built around a point guard now, right? I'm saying, like the point guard is That must have now before you needed that center.
Because he did so he controlled the paint, anchor the defense.
He got you the easy baskets down low.
But the game the game moved away from the rim.
So now, now, curry is more valuable than you and would have been.
And you went and you weren't evolved to you and and just come in with a J like you could literally see him get better and better and better and better over the years as he got further and further away from the basket.
I think, if you would have played have been playing today.
Oh, yeah, He He'd be the best center in the league, bro.
I used to see him hit them fade away.
Yeah, I'm telling you, money, money.
They Dallas used to have this center.
Hey, wind up playing for the pistons later on.
And James, that would I used to call the mustache Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Buddha Edwards.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, hey was unstoppable.
You have a photo shoot? Yeah, s so I was like, I saw him, man.
I saw him get pet the business one night I was like, packed with What are you doing? Pat Pat turned around and looked at He'll be broke up.
He broke, He turned around, looked at Hubie Brown was like, What? You want me? Oh, next year came back with that fade away and he was legit.
You know what I'm saying? But let me let me ask you all. Let me ask you all this.
Do you all feel like the Roy Hibbert block on Melo set the franchise back? Yeah, yeah, yeah, that That was the beginning of to the beginning of the end.
Yeah, Yeah, I turned everything around.
You know, I'm supposed to win that Siri's? No, the J.
Smith elbowing Jason Terry was the beginning of the year.
We're supposed to speak Boston, but he got he got suspended.
Yeah, bad jam, man.
That was, like, the dumbest thing ever because our team was old.
We needed the rest, you know, like, because then that that serious extended six or something, right? So and that was it.
So the thing with the thing with Hibbert, if you could feel like the tide want to turn in our favor because we dominate, man.
Tyson Chandler was playing hurt and Hibbert was dominating him.
You know what I'm saying? So you like we were, like, the only team in the East with, like, a legit I think Tyson Channel was defensive player of the year, right? Yeah.
The year the year before, he was the defensive player of the year.
Okay, Okay, so we legit feel like we had a shot against Hibbert.
You know what I'm saying? But, bro, come on, man.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
HIPPA destroyed Tyson and then went on to do nothing after that.
How much? But with the way the game is played now, with everybody playing on the perimeter, even sensors it behooves you to have a post presence.
Because a lot, a lot of times teams go cold at the same light.
Players go cola, the team go cold together, right? And because they're relying on jump shots, you need that person.
You could throw the ball down to to get you easy buckets, high percentage looks.
And that's how I see.
That's how I see Randall.
That's why I say if they trade Randall, they're going.
They're going to take a step back because you've given up somebody that gives you 20 and most of it is in the paint.
Now you replace replacing him.
His spot, His number one option spot with RJ who struggles toe like everything's contested with him.
What I'm saying so he don't He don't score easy enough or or get easy enough attempts to be a number one.
So? So I think if they if they get rid of Randall that that's why I said, I think you're ready, Randall.
The Hawks gonna be better than them.
The Hawks will be better enough regardless, e.
I believe that too.
Where was where was drumming that? He's in Cleveland.
Oakley! Okay, Okay.
What's called a cappella? Didn't even play with them. So compelling.
Compelling, Collins, that that that should be a good little good front court.
Yeah, but they have, like nobody else.
Like they have those three guys and then everybody else sucks.
Everybody else is like our roster.
Yeah, like they're, like, legit, like everyone else is like a Damian Dotson on the right state Well, I got a couple of dudes that average 12.
10 hunter hunters.
Yeah, he's alright.
Yeah, but like cat cams.
Okay, but he ain't ready.
Do he mentioned any Ready What? What what pick they get? They got the 666 weeks before us.
Oh, yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah.
They're gonna be better.
E think they're gonna sign somebody good to because they have cap space.
E think they're going to get a little I think they're gonna get little Williams.
Who do you think he leaving the Clippers? He seemed like he didn't wanna be there, to be honest.
Yeah, Yeah, maybe because of the cove.
It because he wanted to go to the strip club.
Where was that Strip club? Atlanta.
Hey, that 11 pep ain't no joke.
Lemon pepper wings and Jason Addiction Dog, I swear.
Hey, don't need that.
He got he got two girlfriends.
He don't He don't need that e My man was like my man was like, Hey, man, I got enough for either pack of Newports.

Talk about throwback Friday throwback.
Um, yo, the deal is eso I'm a part of.
I'm part of a bigger networks.
I'm a part of the NBK fam network.
And so, you know, I do my own stuff on YouTube, right? But at the same time, I watch other nicks contributors do stuff, and I feel like it in my mind.
They don't really touch on how the fans really feel.
They feel like breaking news is the most important thing.
And and, you know, for my money, for my money, I feel like I get breaking news all day straight to my phone, so I don't need somebody, you know, Next control.
Tell me to break the news.
You know, I'm saying I get all the I get breaking news straight on my phone from all the sources, all of them.
Um, So, um, what I like to do is just get Knicks fans on and just have the conversation about what's happened.
You know, I'm saying I don't need I don't need You know what I'm saying? News from a reported source from Iain Begg Lee of S N Y to break down stuff for me.
That ain't that ain't my bag.
I can read that on my phone.
You know what I'm saying? But but But my but don't come to my phone is is asking Chuck be about Frank? You know, it does calling.
State was a state was getting on Peyton, right? State was getting on Peyton today.
Eso he was like, who paid and make better.
So I said little Frank make better.
So South come in? Yeah, the entire game he covers up.
He was He covers up so much for these crappy ass defenders and keep everyone involved off on offense.
A true team player.
That's south response.
Eso So who do frank make better? He said the entire team.
So I said, how did he make the entire team better if you start with four other people and they've just been losing since they got him, how is he making? Oh, that's not his fault.
Uh, you guys, uh, still trying like, yeah, yeah, everybody man like he was probably agree with.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So it was just like he's He's credited him for wins, but it's not his fault.
The losses ain't his fault.
It ain't even like, like, to your point, I understand where you're coming from, but I saw I saw situation cir***stances where it's not even the winds.
If the Knicks do anything good, if they do something good and still lost, it's all credit to Frank.
Yeah, You know what I'm saying? Like, yeah, from the free throw line tonight.
Well, you know Frank. Frank.
Give this **** e.
Who was it? What was importers that had the that had that crazy good game? And I think Frank Conference or something? No, they something locked down. Levine.
I was at the game.
He did not look like e Think he only played the 10 minutes like, yeah, he locked him down in 10 minutes.
Like I was like Like like every time somebody have a good game, it'll be them And Frank like that one person don't get the credit by itself, right? You know that game that game was crazy. I was.
Yo, you remember with my man I used to love Trey Burke.
Um, Brutus House name Brutus and Brutus.
Eso So? So the Knicks played Charlotte and one and Trey Burke went off for, like, 22 23 points.
You got, like, 40 right? Didn't have, like, 40.
I wasn't I e Hey, didn't even start.
I think he just came in the game and just lit up Charlotte.
Yeah, and then And then at the end of the game, Frank Frank defended the dude for the game winner and the dude missed and cats on the thread was like, Yeah, Trey Burke and Frank Lock E O.
That's what they did with the Rockets giving the Rockets game.
You know, the Rockets games like, Yeah, Archie, Archie and Frank.
Because he's offended.
At the end of the game, I was, like, Way wanted a wonder Ellington didn't just go off and had, like, 15 threes or something.
Look, Westbrook gotta open.
First of all, he's not a jump shooter, but But he gotta hope he gotta open.
Look for the file line.
He just missed it.
So any anybody that missed and Frank is anywhere near it, it's because of him, right? It so frankly like.
And so the Franklins tell me so the Franklin was like, Hey, when you without you love Frank, When you when you were chucking them? You hate Frank.
And what I tell them is What I tell them is I'm legit.
All I want the next dude is toe win.
You know, I'm saying if Frank plays good and we win Hey, I'm a I'm awful.
Or do we lose it? We could Yeah.
Well, I don't see how you could love 62 on three anyway.
Dude, I don't understand it.
You know, like with Knox, are okay.
