insert your 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 anyways, 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.
Your phone, your phone is gonna die.
And then plus and plus, the I don't really like the app, but because it's not really is 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.
I don't know what what's going on when you're Yeah, probably.
I think I'm I'm on this.
I'm gonna chromebook uh, and it's not as functional is the Windows products that I used to use in the past.
So So anyway, I want I want to get back to it.
Man, I didn't really want to get into the current Knicks roster construction.
You 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 stuff that we generally don't talk about as often as we should.
Um, getting back to the Jeremy Lin, um, era down 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 is like him lighting up the Lakers? Yeah, it wasn't like like these one.
It's not like one in every, like, five games.
It was like a whole Yeah, like stringing 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, saying it was like Can Jeremy can Jeremy Lin, legit, hit a game winner with Jose called around on him who was called the wrong withdrawn cold around was good at that time.
Yeah, Yeah, people, people don't remember that, but called the wrong with somebody mhm and he hit the game winner in Toronto and half the Toronto crowd was like, Well, the Knicks hats up in the air celebrating, you know what I mean? And so and so like, people look, and it was like s o The thing I didn't really take too back then was like, Oh, the Asian guy.
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 were sitting there and be like his face like everyone was cheering for it 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 in and get his numbers and we'll lose by seven and everything is OK.
You know, I'm saying, um, are really bad 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 then later on, Jr signed with us and then Kenyan sandals. Yeah.
With what? We have made those signs.
If we didn't catch fire, probably not.
Probably e think Jr was 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.
Uh, what did you say? The number one that was gonna drive for Patrick Ewing? 00 it was due.
We will do for a turnaround.
All right? It's terrible for so long.
Like it is like now.
Like history repeating itself.
Way due for another U. N.
Man, right? Yeah, a lot to you, man.
Won't lie to you when I found out.
Um um, because we went So we was outside playing.
And so dude just wrapped him.
He's like, Yo, the Knicks got the number one pick.
Spike Lee said, and he was, like, going on and on.
And like the number one pick, we've got the number one pick.
Yo, 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, 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 contact.
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.
Um, Thio ticket.
But but if you didn't have if you didn't have, like, a jab, all you know what 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 the 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 you know, we in the tri state area, this dude playing in D. C.
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 go and everybody's like, No, they like a free Z dog.
I know you love Chris Mullin, but Pat, you on the truth, and I was like, way got Bill Cartwright.
Why? We need young when we got Cartwright.
You know, I'm saying this is my night.
This is my not embassy, you know, because I was a shortly 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.
You know, 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 shortly like, 10.
I'm like, Yo, that's all we need is a center, and they're like, Yeah, we got the Bill Cartwright, And I was like, Yeah, we're gonna win us a **** chick, buddy.
We're gonna get us.
So this is a dynasty right here, man.
But anyway, we got the hat and I was like, Yo, we got pet, but we ain't got no **** guards.
So we basically started from scratch.
The guards we had all of them was like Daniel dots.
And for some context for everybody.
All the guards you had back then everybody was a dot, you know, everybody was like one night didn't 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 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.
Yeah, 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 Easy.
Baskets down low.
But the game the game moved away from the rim.
So now, now, curry is more valuable than you wouldn't would have been.
Yeah, to you and it and just come in with a J.
Like you could literally see him 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 been playing today Oh, yeah, he He'd be the best center in the league to grow.
I used to see him hit them fade away.
18 for this? Yeah, I'm telling you.
They Dallas used to have this center.
He wanted playing for the pistons later on.
And James that would I used to call them the mustache.
Buddha. Buddha? Yeah.
Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah, man, hey was unstoppable.
You have a photo shoot? Yeah, man s.
So I was like I saw him, man.
I saw him get packed the business one night.
I was like, What? What are you doing? Can Pat turned around and looked at? He'll be broke up.
He broke, He turned around, looked at Hubie Brown was like, What do we owe? Next year Came back with that fade away and he was legit, you know, I'm saying, but let me let me ask you all.
Let me ask you all this.
Do you all feel like the, um, 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.
No, I was supposed to win that Siri's? No, the J.
Smith elbowing Jason Terry was to begin with, we're supposed to speak Boston.
What's that? Because our team was old.
We needed the rest, you know, because then that that serious extended six or something.
So and that was it based? Mhm.
So the thing with the thing with Hibbert, if you could feel like the time I want to turn in our favor because he dominated man.
Tyson Channel 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 year before he was 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.
It would destroy Tyson and then went on to do nothing after that.
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 team's goal cold at the same light players go cola the team go cold together, right? And because they're relying on could throw the ball down to to get you easy buckets.
High percentage looks.
And and that's how I see.
That's how I see random.
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.
Okay? And now you 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 get rid of Randall, that's why I said I think you're really Randall.
The Hawks gonna be better than the Hawks.
Something better than us.
Regardless, I believe that too.
Where was where was drumming that? He's in Cleveland.
Yeah, What's called a Capello 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.
So what everybody else is like, I'll rusted in.
Yeah, like they're, like, legit.
Like everyone else is like a Damian Dotson on a rusty.
Well, I got a couple of dudes that average 12.
10 hunter hunters.
Yeah, he's alright.
Yeah, with, like, Cam's. Okay.
But he already you do.
Do you know anybody? What? What pick? They get They got the six 66 or eight before us.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
They they're gonna be better e think they're gonna sign somebody good thio because that cap space e think they're going to get a little I think they're gonna get little Williams.
Oh, 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 Pepe. No joke.
Lemon pepper wings.
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.

Um Yo ho, The deal is eso I'm a part of 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, um, I watch other nicks contributors do stuff, and I feel like 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 contributed to tell me to break the news.
You know, I'm saying I get all the I get breaking news straight in my phone from all the sources.
All of, 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 sauce 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 to be about Frank.
You know what I'm saying it does. Come on their phone.
It does come in your way.
State state state was a state was getting on Peyton, right? State was getting on Peyton today.
Eso he was, like, who do pay and make better.
So I said little Frank make better.
So South come in 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, right? That's south response.
So So who will Frank make better? He said the entire team.
So I said, how did he make the entire team better, if you like, 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, these guys, uh, still trying like, yeah, yeah, everybody.
Then when he was probably agreeing with Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So it was just like he's He's credited him for Wells, 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.
Give this **** e.
Who was it? What was importers that had the that had that crazy good game? And I think Frank or something? No.
They said they locked down Levine.
I was at the game.
He did not look down like e think he only played the 10 minutes.
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.
You know that game? That game was crazy. I was.
Yo, you remember with my man that used to love Trey Burke.
Um, Brutus House name Brutus.
You could be in his lotus. Brutus.
So? So the knicks played, um, Charlotte and one and Trey Burke went off for, like 22 23 points.
Yeah, like 40 Right? Didn't have, like, 40 wasn't I e Hey, didn't even start.
I think he just came in the game and just lit up Charlotte.
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, trademarking froth.
That's what they did with the Rockets getting 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 one.
Allinson didn't just go off and had, like, 15 threes or something.
Look, Westbrook gotta open first, boy.
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 about Frank? When you were 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 do is tow win.
You know, I'm saying if Frank plays good and we win Hey, I'm a I'm awful for you're losing.
