We're, like, a big ****.
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 Sino yeah, way have made those signs.
If we didn't catch you, try not e think Jr was like it was either us or the Clippers, so yeah.
No, it was also the Clippers.
The people enjoy.
All right, All right.
Either way, um so So how do you handle feel? Um, when the Knicks got the number one pick in the draft and we're going to draft pick.
I wasn't born yet.
I, uh What did you said? The number one that was gonna drive home Patrick Ewing.
Oh, well, it was due.
We will do for a turnaround, right? 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.
Ah, so we was outside playing playing tax, 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.
And like the number one pick, we like the number one pick.
Yeah, I was like, Yeah, and eso back then.
I had this Don't start a 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 cooped 10 10 tickets.
But But if you didn't have if you didn't have a job, all you know, I'm saying he 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 it down.
No, it was good.
I knew you one was good, right? I just didn't know.
But I was you know, we and, 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're gonna and everybody's like No, there's like a a crazy 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 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.
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 shorty, 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 **** chip, 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 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 didn't go up to 20 but they can't score 10.
You know what I'm saying? You got tricked 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 his flip since they faced 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.
So he controlled the paint, anchor the defense.
He got you the easy baskets down low.
But the game the game moved a boy 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 to 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.
They Dallas used to have this center.
Hey, wind up playing for the pistons later on.
And James that would I used to call them the mustache.
Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Edwards.
Yeah, Yeah, man.
That way he was unstoppable.
You get your vote, Boudicca Shoot.
Yeah, man e I was like I saw him, man.
I saw him get packed The business one night.
I was like, What the ****? What are you doing? Can pack turned around and looked at He'll be broke up.
He broke, He turned around, looked at Hubie Brown was like, Yeah, what You want me to go on next year? Came back with that fade away and he was legit.
You don't say 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 the beginning of the end.
Yeah, Yeah, I turned everything around.
You know, I'm supposed to win that Siri's? No, the J R.
Terry was to be getting in here.
We're supposed to meet Boston, but he got he got suspended.
Man, that was, like, the dumbest thing out because our team was old.
We needed the rest, you know, like, because then that that serious extended six or something.
So and that was it basis.
So the thing with the thing with Hibbert, if you could feel like the tide want to turn in our favor because we dominated 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 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 my hand.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
HIPPA destroyed Tyson and then went on to do nothing after that mhm watch.
But with the way the game is played now, with everybody playing on the perimeter even senses it behooves you to have a pulse 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 jump shots, you need that person.
You could throw the ball down to to get you easy buckets on high percentage looks.
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 pain.
Now you replace replacing him.
His spot, his number one option spot with RJ, who struggles toe like everything is 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 that's why I said, I think you're really Randall.
The Hawks gonna be better than the Hawks will be better than us.
Regardless, I believe that too.
Where was where was drumming that? He's in Cleveland.
Oakley. Okay, Okay.
What's called a capella and 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 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 all right.
Yeah, but like Cam's Okay.
But he already he do.
Do you know anybody? What? What pick? They get They got the six 66 are there before us.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
They're gonna be better.
E think they're gonna sign somebody good to because that cap space e think they're going to get a little.
I think they're gonna get Lou Williams.
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.
Because he wanted to go to the strip club.
Where was that Strip club? Atlanta.
Pay No joke way, Jason.
Hey, don't need that.
He got he got two girlfriends.
He don't He don't need that.
E man was like, my man was like, Hey, man, I got enough for either a pack of Newports 11 pepper wings.

Um, Yo ho, 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, um, 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 contributed to tell me to break the new 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 what 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 But my but don't come to my phone is is asking to be about Frank.
You know what it does? Come on.
Their phone, it doesn't call.
You were talking about eso 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 a little Frank make better.
So South come in the entire game.
He covers up, he covers, he covers up so much for these crappy ass defenders and keep everyone involved off on offense.
A true player, A true team player, right? That's south response. Yeah.
So who will Frank make better? He said the entire team.
So I said, How did he make the entire team better if you slept with four other people.
And they've just been losing since they got him.
How is he making? Oh, that's not his fault.
These guys, uh, still trying like, yeah, everybody been like he was probably agree with.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So I 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 is all credit to frame? Yeah.
You know, like, yeah, from the free throw line tonight. Well, you don't.
Frank. Frank Gold.
Yeah, e I forget.
Who was it? What was it? Porters that had the that had that crazy good game.
And I think Frank s or something.
No, there's something locked down.
Levine, I was at the game.
He did not look like e Think he only played 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.
Right? You know that game that game was crazy, house.
Yo, you remember with my man that used to love Trey Burke.
Um, Brutus House Name Brutus and Brutus.
So? So the Knicks played Charlotte and one, and Trey Burke went off for, like, 22 23 points.
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 red was like, Yeah, Booth.
That's what they did with the Rockets getting the Rockets game.
You know, the Rockets games like, yeah, R J.
Because he's offended.
What's the Westbrook? At the end of the game, I was like, way went on a one.
Ellington didn't just go off and had, like, 15 threes or something.
Look, Westbrook, gotta open first, while 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 was.
And so the Franklins tell me so the Franklin was like, Hey, when you without you have 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 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.
Well, I don't see how you could love 62 on three anyway. Okay.
