I'm going to stop.
And I've been trying to upload a video nation for next.
I told you when we saw Cleveland take Isaac a curl at way saw Cleveland take Isaac occurred at five.
We knew at that moment Obey Top was gonna be a neatnik while I did have there.
Ah, six, 9 £220 stretch.
Four can shoot the ball.
Um, athletic once.
And I liked his post wrapped interview last night.
Basically, he said he wants to be a great player.
He believes Tom Thibodeau could push him to become, ah, great player.
And he knows that he has defensive shortcomings.
He's very much into trying to improve.
And I know that Tom Thibodeau is going to be the one to put his foot in his proverbial behind and get him to become a better defensive player.
I didn't know who they would pick with the next pick in the draft.
The end of the picking.
Emmanuel and I had looked at his percent shot 43% from three point Kentucky, the shooter drawbacks with, But he's not a great finisher.
I'm not worried about that.
We talked about Tom Thibodeau one in defense.
He got it from manual quickly.
We didn't want Desmond Bain.
Look at Malki Flynn.
We didn't want people like military.
They didn't get picked.
They were all on the board when they chose a manual quickly.
But it makes perfect sense with the conducted connection between Kenny Pain and John Calipari.
Why West Perfect sense.
And, of course, with the arrow.
So, um, I think we did very well.
And remember we looked at Tom Thibodeau's coaching record.
I looked at his eight years approaching of head coaching between the Chicago Bulls and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
And what we found is that generally the minutes babies, prayers get be there as well.
Of course I'll be topping.
They're going to get in that in that nine man rotation I believe will be topping.
And I think I told you this before.
Obi Topping is the only player in this draft.
If drafted, I felt like Tom Thibodeau will start What I told you repeatedly.
He doesn't start rookies.
He does not like the paper.
Okay, Uh, definitely does not start point guards and I also want you to notice the Knicks did not to the point guard last night in the draft.
I mean, you may be disappointed by that.
And so I was surprised, though I was surprised by a couple of things.
I surprised at how far times Halliburton fell, and I believe, very sincerely that that that Phoenix chose Jaylin Smith and did not choose Carl Lewis.
I was very shocked about that.
I know Jaylin Smith is a good player.
We did a review on him, but I felt like Kyra Lewis would be a guy that could be groomed under CP three for the next two seasons and really take over the reins in this third seat cards on his roster.
Maybe they just feel like one of those guys is the guy that future.
And they didn't need, um to draft the guard.
Maybe that's why I felt, frankly, Latina.
And so I couldn't how they might feel about those guys.
So they have a few guards, young guards on their roster.
Maybe they want those guys I can see.
Uh, Jaylin Smith started before with him and camera Johnson battling for that position.
But I think Phoenix is in pretty good shape.
Detroit had a really good night last night.
They got Sadiq Bay, they got Isaiah Stewart.
And of course, they got Kelly and hes.
They had a really good night last night.
Um, uh, I'm very happy with what we got as the Knicks.
Um, so I feel like this particular team under the coaching of Tom Thibodeau with the coaching staff they got with Woodson and Campaign and Johnny Bryant again.
I express to you on a few videos and a couple months ago that my goal for the next this year we could get 35 Wednesday this year.
That's a step in the right direction, particularly with the young people that we have.
I believe now, with the drafting of over the top with the pick up of manual quickly two rookies that are going to get some time under Tom Thibodeau, like I said over time is now you're starting for, um um and he is You're starting vandal Moved or or Junior's room has agreed to come off the bench and I will say this again.
Julius Randle is a really good third.
Often he really is a good third option problem with you that we have that many are just not getting this.
Why you hate Jews is not hatred of Jewish Medal for 100 times is not that Julius Randle is a third option.
He's not a first autumn.
He's in the seventh year.
He's not going to develop a jump shot.
That's that's who he is Now.
He's a low block player.
He uses his strength, athleticism, toe, overwhelm people on the low block he does that does it very well.
Okay, be put in that position.
He must be a third option.
So if he was to come off the bench for the Knicks as a backup five or as a backup four, I see more of a five.
He'll be very effective.
I would have no problem with that and backing up Mr Robinson as a five.
Now, that brings me to today.
We know that didn't have to decide.
Like that's a no brainer.
So, as a matter of fact, when we look at the roster, has this instructor right now may change, obviously over the weekend.
But you have to mention book you got, man, you quickly you have will be topping and let us not forget 80 bucks ***.
He's a good shooter.
Okay, let's not forget he brought status.
He's a good shooter.
Okay, so we have four good shooters on on the roster right now, and I know now also with the pick of Obi Topping, we no longer need to be worried about a concern ourselves with pursuing Christian.
Would we no longer need to pursue their diverse Pretends? Not for the money they're looking for.
Jeremy Grant Carlo.
Now we we don't need to persuade any of these guys now we still need another shooter on the wing.
Onda, we still have Joe Harris.
Bob Bob, Donna vich is back in play.
That deal did not go through.
We still have easily.
Okay? These guys were on played a good shooters, All of them tremendous shooters.
And the available There's a possibility still of Fred Van Fleet.
I don't think they're going to do that.
I'll be surprised they signed him, especially the number one option.
But he's a shooter, okay? He's a shooter, so they're going to signs.
And then, of course, for Thibodeau before.
So we're going to sign another shooter in some capacity this weekend.
I don't know who is going to be, but that's what we're going to do.
All right, that's going to happen.
Um, I'm very happy where we are right now.
I'm very happy where we are right now.
I like the team.
I think a lot of us were of the camp that, you know, we need to develop the youth that we have.
We need to see what we have with them this year.
They need the time, and it looks as if they're going to get that.
Um, The only question mark with today I wouldn't be surprised if they picked up his up in, um, even if they did pick up. Exactly.
You did present, sir.
Even if they did pick up his option, Um, they're still gonna have 30 million of cap space.
So if they pick up the option of both Taj and, uh, book, they're still gonna have 30 million in cash space.
There's plenty enough to get a forever athlete if you want him.
There's plenty enough, you know, to sign a pro level shooter like a bomb. Donna Vish.
I think you're gonna have to go to 18 year for broad.
Gone a bit and I have no problem doing that.
I have no problem doing it.
Um um, Beasley would cost less, but I'm not sure the Knicks have him on their radar.
I'm not sure that if they want him, I'm not sure they've been keeping these things close to the vest.
And I like that.
And so we're definitely gonna find out this weekend.
But I've been acquire a shooter this weekend.
That's what I'm saying to you.
So by Monday, we will have a roster with five shooters, five shooters that are capable of hitting the three ball above 40%.
Okay, think about that.
We will have five shooters that are capable of hitting the three ball about 40%.
Okay, that's a drastic improvement for us.
And we know that Thibodeau is going to be looking to create situations whereby you get a lot of corner threes.
Okay? And that's the easiest one to hit.
And frankly, Latina shot 50% from quarter three last year.
Okay? And you know we know.
How about register bullets? Because she bought How about and so I'm very happy with what we have.
We're moving in right direction.
I'm very confident in the 35 1 season.
You know this, Sadie? 3 to 5 little victories, brother.
Not big splashes, little victories, you know? So I'm very happy about that.
We're gonna find out.
I believe in in a few days what they're gonna do with Mr Randall again.
If Mr Randall Julius Randle decides he will come off the bench and he has no problem.
Julius Randle is gonna kill other teams.
Julius Randle is gonna kill a team.
Okay, So his Randall is if he's the number one option because, as you saw last year, he's not number one hour, Okay? And some person said there's no such thing as empty stats.
I don't believe that's true.
There is such a thing as empty stats.
Let me explain what empty stats me empty stats is a player that could maybe in Julius Randle's case could get you 20 points, 20 points and 10 rebounds every game, but gets none of his teammates involved.
Doesn't make any of his teammates better.
He gets hit, and none of his teammates get better.
That's an empty step.
Because what happened to know scenarios? He's going to get his numbers and we're gonna lose the game.
Okay, that's empty ***.
Okay, versus I'd rather have a player that didn't put up those numbers but makes all this teammates better.
And we get more wins.
It's his teammates.
Better the substance, even though it doesn't matter.
The only matter of fact that matters is if we get the w Okay, we get the wind and everybody involved.
That's what you want.
Okay, Can you? Okay, But at this point, we are rebuilding, So we're not looking for the superstar yet.
We're not looking for the All Star yet.
We're looking to develop the All Star.
And in the last two seasons, we have gotten R.
Barrett manual quickly and overtopping, and I told you one of these cats are going to talk.
Okay, Obi, I can guarantee you right now, and you're gonna be all MBA, all rookie, first team, and he's gonna be in the conversation as top three rookies in this class this year.
Possible rookie of the year.
That's what we got right now.
Okay? Our boy R J and and people you know, we're really, you know, crapping on r J r.
J had a good season last year with a terrible unit with him with no spacing.
But something about how bad he waas because he was a nick.
That won't be a question with overtopping overtopping gonna do work, Okay? Even if And you all know I'm a Frank, I'm a lover of Frank.
And, you know, I d g a f Well, it is.
If they're bringing frame off, I'm liking that man.
I'm not gonna front. I like that.
That's a defense of you.
It quickly the floor will be spent.
Um, yeah, I will have no problem with that. Okay.
And Kevin Knox, maybe Eagle Brass Davis.
I got no problem with that.
Now, the odd man out here, I think we all know is Dotson, right? Damien Doctson.
My feeling is probably his folks, his reps.
Probably getting him a better deal somewhere else.
The guy is better than you know.
He has not gotten a fair shot on day.
Got a $2 million qualifying offer out there.
I think a guy like Dotson could get least five million a year somewhere.
And so we might lose Damien Dotson.
Okay, I would like to keep Damion Dotson.
I would like to keep them in dots, and there's no question, but I'm just again, um, Shalu PMO.
I'm just saying what the Knicks were gonna do, just like I did with the draft.
I wanted them myself.
But I told you all I think they had open topic at the top of their list. And they did.
I want to keep Damien Dotson.
I'm not sure the Knicks see him in there playing.
So, um, we got two good players.
We knew we were going to get good players in this draft.
I thought we would get three, but we got to and stand why? They took two.
They took Malik offline.
I went to real Terry.
You know, there's a lot of players that we thought was gonna that I had.
I was shocked when I saw those three guys available when we were picking at 25.
I was really shocked when I saw that.
Okay, But the Knicks decided on quickly and you know, I'm not discount.
I'm not being paid Thio.
I'm not being paid toe to pick these guys.
My job is not on the line there, is it? So they picked that, and I'm gonna respect that.
They quickly No, no slouch man.
The guy could shoot the ball.
So on he plays good man on man defense.
He plays good man on man defense.
Okay, so we we did good.
I'm not gonna front up front.
Or why about what we could have got.
We got what we got.
And I think I understand why they picked to because they're trying to make sure our young players get minutes.
If you recall for the last two seasons, ever since Frank came, they had that old guard that there was in front of him that year.
Then it was moodier.
National was Peyton.
He didn't hardly get no time to develop man.
20 minutes a game ain't gonna do it.
Y'all you need to put 30 minutes on this thing.
But Jared Jack? Yeah.
We need to get 30 minutes on this thing.
Okay, so with Tom Thibodeau
