Nick's family was popping this your boy and I am new to SportsCastr.
I'm trying something out very new right now.
And so that's why you hear Echo in the background.
I'm gonna take this up.
Okay? There we go.
Hopefully you have been here by Echo in the background.
But anyway, next family, what is popping this? Your boy Sydney Russell, the host of nothing but Nick's.
And I'm new to SportsCastr.
But hopefully this is going to become something that works out very well.
I'm impressed with site, and we're gonna see how those goals, um, just to get you understanding the way that this goes down.
Nothing but Nick's is a fan.
So all we do we are fans that want to talk about the New York Knicks.
We'll talk about the New York Knicks, have a video chat, and you can video win whereby dot com slash nbk and you can call in 5.
64 or 5 to 246 And today we're gonna talk about the starting lineup.
The Knicks starting lineup.
Who should start.
That's what we're gonna talk about today.
Who should start for the New York Knicks? All right.
So let me get my video chat in the building, and we're gonna We're gonna talk about this topic.
We're gonna talk for about 20 minutes right now, I'm just kind of testing out the platform, so it's not a perfect video testing out.
Want to see how well it works? All right, so let's let's get popping.
I got my man Andy and a Jet.
Andy was going on with you, my man.
How you feeling? They're on the new platform.
Hope it works out for us.
Well, yeah, I hope so, too.
I think that, um, it's something new, you know, me.
And I think that it could be very good.
You know, basically, it's like this, uh, as this thing gets rolling, you know, and, um, broadcast to some live games.
I have the ability to access stats.
I have the ability to ah, ah, you know, access scores.
And eventually they're moving into being able to broadcast, maybe even, like live games.
You know, sometime way down in the future where they'll have a live game and I'll be able to call the game something like that and you'll be able to see the game.
So you know that there's something that could be good for the site.
You know me, you know that that could be something that's very good.
So I'm excited about things that you know, the possibility off SportsCastr Neil.
And I'm not leaving you too.
But I'm looking at the possibility of doing both at the same time.
So, uh, if you want a SportsCastr right now and you're checking me out thank you for checking me out.
All right, So, anyway, we just went over.
We were just on YouTube, and we were We did a a Bobby Portis and Wayne Ellington film breakdown.
Right? And, you know, we were discussing their skills and what their role will be on this basketball team.
All right? And then, of course, that leads into the starting lineup.
Who's going to be part of the starting lineup? So, Andy, looking at ports and Ellington in the film breakdown that we just did? Do you see either one of those players in the starting lineup the end of story? I wanna know.
I don't see him, but I see them as bench players.
Doctor, we'll get minutes on this squad.
Okay? um all right, so who do you have as your starting lineup, But well, I'm gonna have help rotating at the one.
I'm not sold on anyone here yet.
But if I would have, I think I'd go with Artie Barrett.
Just there's several reasons in several, you know, maybe not even a basketball stuff that that that we should start in because, you know, being the worst team in the league and picking, you know, the guy has 1/3 spark.
It's gonna be hard to resist.
Do not start him, Uh, you know, at the tool.
Besides that, I would have markets more, said three Juliet surrender of the poor and metropolis. Another fire.
And I think that's where a lot of people most people are going to go with.
So my question now is my question is, ah, where do you get to shooting in that lineup? That's that's That's the hard part.
I think we're going to use markets.
Mortar, the shooter.
I don't see us, you know, throwing us the ball down low to him that that be Julius Randle role.
Randall's going to step out and take the shooting, but I wouldn't be surprised that we're gonna use another shooting guard.
Maybe just appeasing our Jase, you know, coming to the N B A.
Because it's it's You know, it's hard for him to join in a team as a rookie, having huge expectations with him.
But as we all know, he isn't the best shooter.
So it's not like on the team.
He just wasn't a good shooter at at this point.
I don't think he showed it even a college level.
Uh, it's rather streaky.
If he makes even go shot.
He's right of the slasher on stuff like that.
So it's gonna be a hard thing.
But it also depends like it always repeat myself on the philosophy that face is going to try to implement and then the style of play, because, actually, I still don't know what what kind of coaches he was talking about defense having sold out, so So I'm really, I'm really, you know, waiting curiously to see the first preseason games.
If we got something set up for this either.
Yeah, um, yeah, you see, that's the main thing about that lineup that I worry about is the shooting You know, uh, you gotta have if your offense is gonna work, you gotta have gotta have shooting on the floor.
I think if your offense is gonna work, I just don't think there's enough shooting and that starting lineup.
If you You said Dennis Smith Jr is the starting point guard.
Um I mean, even with Alfred paying and let's see drastically improved his jump shot even with over Peyton, and I still only see lf it pay in, I mean, he shoots 31% from three.
Yeah, I you know, I wouldn't like him.
They know the long distance shots, that's for sure.
So you know that that's what you know.
I just wonder how, um you know where you're going to get that shooting foam, you know, on that? Yeah, that's not body Ellington really with this role perfectly.
But, you know, it's it's I think it's gonna be hard for the organization.
No, just sit, R. J.
You know, at the start of the season, we were so bad last season on his R, it's called a prize.
So why not be no, the women at the beginning just to make you know a couple of fans happy? No, it z possible reasons that might not have sent for his development.
That might not be the best thing, because we don't know how he's gonna take it.
Like we saw with Frank, like so the other guys, some guys would like to be in the fire from the beginning.
Some would like to have an easy transition from college to return to the FDA.
So it's really hard thing and wear not around the players for 24 7 So we don't know how you know how they could respond to those things.
Some were gonna Really You want it And some are gonna be okay.
I'm fine with coming off the bench, growing my minutes through the season and stuff like that.
But I wear not around the guys we don't know.
They're no mental.
No, uh, mental thing on the game on the minutes and stuff like that.
Yeah, definitely. Okay.
Um all right, well, you know, we're gonna see this.
There's a lot to think about.
What? This starting lineup I want to see.
What's a mother? You know how some other people feel about the starting lineup? I'm accompany Kevin.
And ladies and gentlemen, I just want to let you know if you are new here.
And I think a lot of you guys have been here are, you know, used to win.
But if you're new and you're just watching me on, SportsCastr, you could get into this video chat just about going toe whereby dot com slash and B k, or you can call in at 5164 or 5 to 246 I don't Don't be afraid to do either.
Ladies and gentlemen.
All right, Kevin, you starting lineup who were just starting lineup for this team.
My starting lineup it Dennis Smith, Jr Damian dots in.
Okay, the small forward.
It's tough market smores or cabin ox is fine.
And then Julius Randle and Mitch Robinson, that would be my story.
Okay, um why Damien Dotson? I just like the athleticism.
If we're gonna compare him to elegant, I like lettuce.
Isn't he? Brings over him.
That's mainly what it comes down to.
Okay. Oh, so feel like he's the better.
Okay, so But why Dami Dotson over Alonso traer all J.
Barry The reason The reason I don't I love alarms that you're the reason not to put him in the starting lineup is just speculation.
It's better coming off the bench.
But honestly, I'm not.
I'm not too opposed to starting to see how he does to see Deacon take on more than the role of, ah, score off the bench to be that six man, he could get that starting venture.
Uh, that's starting lineup spot.
I think he could flourish in that role.
All right. There is people talking there.
You gotta have to go ahead and meet them guys out, but not you.
But but But why is it that you I mean, but one of the reasons just basketball ways that you choose and Amy dots and over those guys now, Okay, The reason I'm choosing Damian Dotson is based off last year what I saw just in terms of the way there was times they were forced feeding him the ball last year because he was the only one getting buckets on this team and it had a certain level of consistency.
He also had really bad stretches, you know, But there's a lot of times where he was.
He couldn't be stopped where he was on fire.
So I just and the way he comes off of screens way moves around.
I just really like the way he approaches it from the two guard spot.
Uh, do you think is gonna be just in the fact that sorry.
Just used to the fact that he comes away, he comes off screens, and the defenders are really keen on him.
They were really king on him, Especially when he was on fire, right? He really commended a lot of attention, so I think he could really flourish in a rolls started.
Okay, so So in the shoulder injury, you know, that's what I was gonna ask you about.
That's what I was gonna ask you.
So you think you should come back from him? He says he's feeling good, so I mean, I mean, every player says that, but, you know, I'm gonna take him at his word, saying, you know that he's doing good.
Okay, now, all right.
So now I'm gonna ask you this.
You put your program, I ask you this because you said earlier you think, What's his name has a chance to start.
If he comes back, who starts? Ah, Damion Dotson or Reggie Bullock? If the bullet comes back, that's really tough.
Because of the contract, I'm I'm almost certain we're gonna trade at least two players at the deadline.
I'm not sure who that's gonna be, but I just can't see all these players staying on the scene the whole year.
So I wouldn't be surprised if he gets traded because he's on a one year deal.
But straight up Reggie Books about player.
I mean, let's be honest, but so we're really talking about starting when Reggie Bullet comes back.
Reggie Collection start.
But then what happens to Damian Dotson? You know, let's say you don't re sign Reggie Bullock, and then you don't you move on from Damian Dotson.
But you you know, also, I think R.
Barrett is best suited at the point guard position.
Okay, initially think that.
But I just feel like when he has the ball in the sand seas at its most dangerous.
Okay, Um So Okay, now, what chances do you have of him every starting at that point guard spot force, or how many minutes How much time would you see him playing that point guard spot from the beginning? Maybe not much, but I should move forward.
Seems already think toys just to clutter there.
Honestly, I feel like when he gets on the court and you get some on his hands, the coaches, they're going to realize exactly what they have when he has the ball.
In this answer, I think he's gonna have the ball in the stands more and more as the season goes on, even if he's not the starting point guard.
I could see him still running the offense even with like Jenna Smith out there.
I could see him getting the ball and then initiating the out.
Benson going from there regardless, who is at the point guard position, whether it's Elfrid Payton, even though our patients more floor general, I just think R. J.
Barrett has that i Q.
Still run an offense.
Uh, this is my opinion, okay? It's all you know.
We'll see, you know, as the preseason.
Well, so and we're gonna see a lot be decided.
There's a lot of things.
Yeah, we're going to see a lot when the preseason starts when they play.
That first game was the Washington Wizards.
You know, uh, you know, the first game is gonna be kind of, like, just just getting their feet wet, right? Just warming up, getting their feet wet.
And then, you know that second game will start the season things we'll get an idea.
We're getting an idea. I think it fits.
Tells got his job cut out for him.
But, you know, we'll see.
What? So all right, let me get to a couple of guys.
Did you put your starting line about there? Did I put my starting lineup out there? No, not yet.
I'm going to go put my stuff online about them, and I'm not running away from it.
I'm not running away from member. Put it out there.
All right, I'm gonna put it out there.
Let me see this.
Let me see what you think, man.
Starting lineups? Yes.
What is your starting line up? All right.
So I got ah, uh, I will say Dennis Smith, Jr.
I think he'll win it out. I got R.
They got Marcus Morris about Julius Randle, and I got Mitchell are missing.
Okay, so you said Dennis Smith, Junior R.
Barrett, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson.
Are you worried about the shooting with that lineup? I am.
But I don't know.
There's a really a ah, quick fix in any sort of, you know, there's really, like, a true fixed, not a quick fix with true picks.
Actually, solve that.
So I think you just gotta roll with this lineup and then, you know, eventually you're not Christian, but eventually things will work until about where you know, they may end up replacing somebody after x amount of games, then, Okay, You know, maybe we'll bounce it out more, but I think to start the season, that's what it's gonna be.
I think that shooting will be okay.
Well, probably more threesome.
Might shoot threes, too, and you'll get some remorse to, but, um, I think that's the stabilising lined up.
And I think you have toe you have to go the stable like Lauren line of Rather like the you know, maybe the one that's like not, you know, maybe better balance.
But, you know, it doesn't have much of a high like a normal floor, I guess, but Okay, so All right.
So what is your second line up? My second alternate lineup.
Yeah, well, it was just your second line up you line up. Cool.
Beckon option. I got you.
Um, yeah, I would then go with, like, uh, although Dennis Smith Jr.
You promise? Here's a tough All right, this is where I walked in, and I think I feel like at the point guard spot we're gonna be stuck shooting like I don't think there's a ah clear solution for us that point Carter from a shooting perspective.
So let's say Frank, right, let's let's say Albert bit, let's say L for pain, right? But like, I can't I can't just necessarily bench r J.
Barrett's Even if he doesn't shoot, right? You know, that's the problem.
You'd still be offered.
Rg Barry, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson.
That thing that only really makes sense.
I can't just pulling a Davian Dotson at the two overarching Barrett there.
If just cause of shooting these are your barrettes going toe averaged, like 18 points a game, you know, in preseason or whatnot, then I gotta start him.
I just have to start it.
You see the binders, right? Like I can't.
I know what the bindings I could see.
I could feel it is very, very hard to say.
Hey, it is very hard to say.
You really do have to, You know, we can say all we want now about who I start Lineups are, but you're right.
We've got to look at and see what they're doing in preseason.
We may just have to write.
You may have to just, you know, if they don't shoot, just do it that you don't deal with it and you try to take advantage of, you know, attacking the paint or doing something else.
You know, just to get get easy buckets biggest.
I think that's probably just gonna be the most consistent, Probably the most talented lineup you have.
And you want the most talented lineup out there that can Ah, overall talented lineup that can do something.
Okay, I, um Well, yeah.
I mean, I get what you're saying about having an overall talented lineup.
I'm one of those super That kind of feels like, Uh, yes.
Overall, you know you want the most talent on the floor.
But I also feel like, uh, you know, guys that fit together also, you know, can can give you You may not have your most talented guys on the floor, but you may have the best fit of players on the floor.
You know, I guess the question for you is this right? You want the best fit, right? I guess the only real locker from the best fit is you take a Sergeant Barrett and moving to the bench.
And then, you know, you insert a shooting guard, you insert.
I don't know, Dotson.
It traded threes.
You put you put Alonzo there.
Ah, you could put Wait.
I don't see my problem.
Wayne Ellington is He's his role.
Really? The ventral.
I don't think you could really start him, because I don't think his if you play him too many minutes, you really, like get a regression of his performance.
So it really is either gonna be like r j so or dot But again, the biggest wall car dot's gonna be how how he shoots after surgery.
Yeah, so it could really be a question of the Ninos Owen R j And then the real question Kenzo hit enough threes toe, um, warrant playing him over our jet.
Yeah, well, let me get to Gamow.
You mean and you know Listen, we're gonna try to hold Gamow to something, all right? We're going to get the game.
Hey, check this out, Gamow.
Tony Crow was having a conversation and saying, Don't take this the wrong way, right? Don't take this tall.
Well, don't take this the wrong way.
Funny is okay, right? But we was like, you know, Kerem Oh is never happy about anything.
What? Wait, Let me finish.
Dennis Smith Jr can go 10 for 10 had 10 assists, 10 rebounds and 10 steals.
A game will be like, but you know he did.
He did let Chris Paul dribble past him to get that lay up.
K c up two points now.
He did? Yes, he hit the game winning shot.
But if you wouldn't let him get around and get those get that lay up, he would have had an end game winning shot.
He's got to do something about that defense that I'm just saying.
Thank you, Vivien.
You know, it's funny because this is why we need is just what I don't like the fact that Vic is not on enough.
When villagers said that actually get broke when he said Wayne, he said What he said that I actually give Dia's J praise and I'm not.
I'm giving an example.
I wasn't saying deals J.
I wasn't saying that.
Hey, I was just giving an example.
OK, but look, we're talking about We're talking about a team that won 17 games, you know? I mean, I already guide.
I would probably say I never complain about like that was Mitchell Robinson and maybe Frank before the whole summer.
But in that man, we gotta be critical.
You got to be objective.
You know, old man, you're gonna talk about Frank.
You hate Franco, you know.
But you can't be like for 17.
When team what a bunch of you know, guys who are relative bums in terms of the whole spectra.
Come on, you gotta be.
I'm the I'm the steady enforcement.
When we get too high.
I bring us back down when we get too low.
I probably still keep us down.
But that's not exactly exactly look.
But you know, that's right.
Excuse that I gave that.
That's not even when I gave the Tony.
You know what I gave to Tony? I said Guillermo could have the perfect lady at his house cook the perfect breakfast.
I just got the turkey bacon and grits and eggs and everything, and he says this'd is great.
This is all great.
But you missed that corner of the toast with butter.
You know, it is It wouldn't be that soon.
I would say you do.
Oh, this about you got to be up to something.
I would say, you know, you got it.
You up to something, Be up to see.
Oh, like she's too nice.
And like NASA, this doesn't make sense.
All right, So let's just starting Lineup May star lineup Man.
I think it's the same thing I said with a man.
I think DJs gonna start up because I think it's the DOJ project.
Um, early on, R J.
Barry, I agree the shooting is out there.
But at this point, what can you do? Um, I think the r J might have the temperament.
Um and I do want about the point guard, but you may not that this is, um and we may not have a system in place where he's using a high pick and roll in the operating space boy at the to go.
I think that, you know, and this is a very small sample size, you know, But you saw the change in our genes game in the summer league games, where he kind of took instructions fairly quickly.
You saw him in the 1st 2 games where you're just chucking shots and you had no rhythm.
And in the last game he let the last two games he let the game come to him, and I think that that fizzle once that a guy who doesn't get kind of too frazzled by like the enormity of the game that makes sense, right? He's a guy who kind of I'm starting to get it.
I know when to make the past, not the user.
The pick and roll know howto get in a box and kind of dominate smaller guards I think our genes, that type of guy, I don't think he gets frazzled.
You know, last year, so not so fresh.
So I see mother too at the three.
Obviously, Marcus Morris.
Because one we're trying his bargain was a study in force.
He probably about the four.
Well, you know, he shy decent at the three point ah line last year.
He's not like a three point big three point shooter. But you did.
It was able to space out the floor.
He's gonna bring tough in his defense.
I know people hate the word toughness, but, you know, he's good.
He's, you know, he's gonna give you the rebounds he's gonna eat, play decent defense.
You need that least somewhere in the team.
Ah, and then you have Randall at the four.
Big name acquisition can bring up the Balkan facilitate, and Dr can do a lot of things that offense defense.
He was a lot to be aside desired.
And because of that on defensive end, you're gonna have to have Mr Robinson in there.
Right? So, you know, would it be cool to see Random Portis play together? Yeah, but they both just don't play enough defense.
So you're gonna need some way to compliment him.
And I think Mitch Robbins is gonna be that That five start out.
This is all right.
Um, it's gonna be a tough test, man.
Tough test for these guys.
For for for David Fizdale this season to figure out you know how to really get a question.
Who do you think is going to show who you think's gonna develop quicker, Knox or R.
J? And I know it sounds too, because our desire to see a fresh a Ricky but I just like our genes make up a lot better than Knox is.
I think that R J Bear is going to develop quicker because he has.
I feel like the mentality is just different than Kevin knocks.
I feel like having Knox is more of a guy that's got a ease into being the guy.
Where are J? Bear is more like I'm that guy right now.
It feels that way, you know.
You know, Kevin Knox is just a little bit more timid.
R j Barry has a little bit more.
I don't want to say brash personality.
But, um, you know white confidence.
Yeah, he's got that brooding, brooding confidence, you know what I mean? And I think, yeah, I think he's going to develop a little bit more.
He's gonna develop quicker than Knox because he's gonna insert himself in games a little bit better.
Yeah, I think I agree, you know.
And so he's going to get that he's going to get that development.
Knox is the kind of guy right now we'll see if it changes this season.
You know, he's the kind of guy where you you wonder, Do you want to put him in in the last five minutes of the game? Because while he's talented, you don't know.
Okay, Is he gonna be aggressive tonight or not? I'm saying, Is he going to step in? Like if he hasn't been aggressive? War Night of hasn't played well.
Is he going to come out on that last five minutes and be afraid to touch the basketball? Or is he gonna come out and still be aggressive with R. J.
Barrett? You already know the answer, No means.
J Bear is gonna get more playing time in those type of situations.
I think unless unless Kevin Knox comes out with a different mentality now, in a couple of years, you know, saying I think I believe that Kevin Knox is gonna grow into that mentality and, you know, it just takes I think people have, you know, they have different developmental stages.
So I think Kevin Knox is gonna grow into that mentality in a couple of years.
Just gotta wait forme.
I gotta put it, man R.
We've been We've been crying for four years to get like that rookie who comes in, even he doesn't perform as because we want, but just confident and not like a disease.
He also he's not confident.
J has like, ah, confidence with perspective, right? I just feel like he would be the type of God.
I'm not having a good show tonight.
Let me play good defense.
Let me house creatures from Penelope's trying to four shots in trying to be the man by scoring, and I just I get that from our game.
Really, I just don't like I liked the Kiss Conference ally, and hopefully that makes these guys hungry like I hope it knocks.
You know, Knox plays a preposition.
I hope it makes it so that these guys wanna compete to be better.
Not just better scorers like last year was trying check shots, But this better overall players, man. Yeah.
And you know, as for my starting lineup, honestly, I wanna wait.
And so after preseason, But I don't want to gyp anybody right now, you know, saying, um, I have two things.
A line that I have who I think is going to start, and I have who I would start right now.
Two different things.
So I think it's going to start.
Um, I think it's going to be Dennis Smith, junior R J.
Barry, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson.
That's what I think is gonna from the beginning of the season.
That's why I think it's gonna end up on the floor.
And I think it's gonna be just because David Fizdale wants to see, you know, Dennis Smith Jr is the most talented point guard.
J. Barrett is the star Wilkie shooting guard.
You know, I'm saying, um, then you know Marcus Morris is gonna be best at three.
Julius Randle obviously is.
The is the ah, you know, the big key pick up in the off season and the Mitchell Robinson is the star center right now with the popular center.
He's the guy, you know, and he could block it.
And it's not just that, but he could block shots.
Uh, you know, he's long.
He's the only true center on the team, you know? So I think for those reasons, I think those guys are gonna end up starting.
Who would I start? Honestly, I think I will go Ellington.
I mean, I'm sorry.
Ah, Elfrid Payton, Wayne Ellington, Marcus Morris, Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson.
That's why I think that's what I think I was.
So I know back, you know, back.
You know, a long time ago I said, I think Mitchell Robinson should come off the bench.
But right now I'm just looking at the line up in the Fit.
You know, I'm saying so looking at the line up in the fit, that's probably what I would do.
Uh, depending on how things look that might go Bobby Portis or Taj Gibson at that center spot, but I would probably go Mitchell Robinson um, that would that's what I would do if I were the coach.
I think it was a Mitchell opposite.
Obviously, because of, you know, he can block shots, you know, But I wouldn't be afraid to say you know what? You're not getting what exactly what I want.
We're going to go with a lineup change if I have to, but, um yeah, but don't you know that Alfred paid in Wayne Ellington? I like the way that backcourt I feel like that backcourt would work.
Well, you know, saying Wayne Lnc could run off screens, catch and shoot.
Elfrid Payton is gonna find him.
Wayne Ellington, Marcus Moore and Marcus Morris is gonna help spread the floor so that Julius Randle could catch Who is going to the basket s o that, uh I'm sorry.
So Mitchell Robinson catch troops going to the basket so Julius Randle can post up.
You know that? That's what I would do it in.
My second line up would be Dennis Smith, Jr.
Um Alonso traer.
Well, my second line on Sorry, Dennis Smith, Jr Alonso traer R J Barry.
Um uh, Kevin knocks probably at the four.
And then maybe Taj Gibson or I'm sorry.
Bobby Portis at the five.
You know, something like that.
And then, you know, you'd have guys like Taj Gibson and Frank Miller Akina, who can step in to some of those positions when need be.
You don't get there 15 times gifts and probably 10 to 15.
Maybe Frank 15 to 20.
And Frank would probably be on when you really need a defensive stopper.
You know, you got a point guard.
It's killing. You. Try to put Frank on them.
You know, Frank would I think he would still get 15 to 20 minutes with the way that I'm thinking.
But, uh, you know, it would be all over the floor if you need extra point guard that night, he might be an extra point guard If you need extra three, man and might be actually three man, you know, extra two.
You might need the extra tool.
You need someone to really come in and lock things down defensively on somebody.
Then you know you're going to use Frank, so he'd be kind of all over the board, not just one position.
That's what I think.
You know, E I think that's what's gonna happen to him this season, anyway.
And then I got Damian Dotson, and I don't even meet me to leave. Maybe.
Now, I don't know.
He have to get in there somewhere.
Tools? I didn't even mean to leave. Naming Dr.
Now it's gonna be a tough task.
Let me ask you guys this and I'm gonna come around that everybody.
Is this going to be so tough of a task that it causes problems within the team? Start with you game.
What do you think? Figuring out the line ups who plays not even just starting lineup but the lineups and who plays is going to be such a tough task that it causes problems.
I say no because you have so many veterans who Look, I think all these guys, all the veterans that came in on short term deals, they know what fizzles trying to do.
They understand what what's going on, right? It's ah, you know, we're trying to build a foundation if you're not a part of it.
Which I did get you on better teams.
Blind, civilizing, blah, zy, you know, I mean, so I don't think it's a thing where, you know, it's I got stuck with a bunch of guys in long term contracts and I don't know what to do.
So and he also has a bunch of generals on the floor.
Look, you're gonna have guys like Marcus Morris is here for a year, so there's no real incentive Marcus Morris to throw a temper tantrum and find kill guys when he knows that.
He's probably gonna get trade anyway to contender.
You got guys like Taj Gibson.
Um, and I just feel like, ah, you know, guys like R.
I think I was gonna They know what's going on.
Guys gonna be patient.
Guy's gonna wait their turn.
Will you place I see Might be a little bit of frazzle is gonna be with the point guard position just because of you know, D s j say Frank beats him out, you know, de Este you know his ads retirement, just It's just in the past.
Just hasn't shown to be that type of guy, you know? I mean, it's the kind of emotional, but, you know, I think overall has on this.
Fizdale is not running the same garbage has run a last in terms of plays on the floor and strategy.
And I think things should be good, because what? He's one of last year's just that was just terrible.
And he has to have a game plan or all that used car selling the stuff, guys gonna check him on it.
So, years ago, that used car salesman stuff, you know, be selling Benzes and BMWs versus ah, No freaking broke down.
Who pees? You know, I think he should be good.
Um, I'll get around to some of these other guys to see what they think.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you just joining me on, SportsCastr, please do me a favor.
Follow me and hit the heart button.
That's like a thumbs up on YouTube.
Hit that hard, But give me a cz many heart buttons as possible.
I, uh, came to see Andy.
What do you think, Andy? You know, they could.
This can go two ways.
One is the year.
Most know the scenario.
And the other thing is, if we are gonna have, like, 57 wins till December, that's gonna be hard and gonna be tense in the locker room.
and it's also not only about the whole wind number, it depends on the quality off game.
So we're gonna play, because if we are going to get blown out by 2030 points to get a night, it's something you know match well with the bets on.
They are going to call out there, the other guys and that my car fresh friction.
But that's be no ah, happy situation now.
And I hope you know it's gonna be the turnaround.
Hey, definitely, definitely.
Let's hope May, because I could see where it could become an issue, you know, saying I could definitely see where it could become an issue where guys, you know, feeling like they deserve playing time.
And Fizdale is unable to get guys playing time.
Somebody there's going to be there's gonna be I made four guys, At least four guys left out 4 to 5 guys left out off getting significant minutes.
And you know, that could be an issue.
You see what I could do? A ll the guy who signed you Look around, Allow I'm not even big in him. Immigration.
But Ellington, he is like only know the cost of his career.
He won't like, you know, sit on the bench.
Same with porters.
I can only think that could be no only guy that we that could take, you know, demotion.
Let's call it in minutes time.
Thing time. Stuff like that's gonna be a gift.
Uh, Reggie is not gonna be complaining on great from the beginning of the season till he know, comes in to pull shape and stuff like that.
He's not gonna have a problem with that.
But the rest of the guys, if they're not getting injured and stuff like that, and they're gonna have to get to know less playing time that they expect that that my called friction as well. Yeah.
Okay. All right.
Uh, let me get over here.
The captain see with Kevin Things, man.
And, uh, then I think really, you know, call this night.
But, Kevin, what do you think? Do you think that the fact that the Knicks are gonna have to choose him starting lineups There's gonna be some guys left out? Do you think that's gonna cause some friction? I do.
I think both guys.
A bold points on the side of the coin on the head butt you asked me to pick.
I think it's unavoidable for every player to be satisfied with their minutes going into this season.
I think that gonna be at least two who are upset.
Almost like Canada.
Situation from last year.
Especially if we're down 2030 points in some games.
You know, we go through bad stretches.
I really feel like some of the players who are getting playing time we're going to start speaking up about being unhappy.
Yeah, but also, I think we're gonna make a lot of trades at the deadline.
At least two, in my opinion.
Yeah, That's a long time to wait also, Right? Right.
That's a long time to wait.
Exactly by the time you get to.
By the time you get to that trade that line, your team could nobody your team could be done.
You know, I'm saying value for that player could drop significantly as they know they're unhappy, so exactly.
Exactly So yeah.
Yeah, We'll see how little schooling.
I don't see a way to avoid some sort of drama with the players getting minutes this year.
At least a couple of them, Honestly, I wish it wouldn't be the case.
But it's hard for me to see a situation whether everybody every player is happy.
Starting to see that.
Yeah. Yeah, that's gonna be difficult.
Man is definitely going to be difficult, but aye, aye.
I feel like they know what they signed up for.
So they can get too angry, right? You know what I mean? Right? They know what they signed on for.
They know who was on the team.
They know what we're trying to do. Going forward. Exactly.
There's only two upset they can get in, my man.
But I still think people will get upset.
I hope that Fizdale is a guy that can keep him under control this week.
Yeah, this leads into your earlier video about Tisdale.
Is you the coach for this Deep? Yeah.
You know, you're gonna be able to get these guys to play together, put the right players together to play winning basketball.
Gotta show he's capable of doing that exactly.
Otherwise, the leash.
It's gonna get really short really quick, right? Really? Yeah.
So, Captain, do me a favor, man.
I'm about to head up out of here because it's two o'clock in the morning when you want to give me some last words.
Just looking forward to this season, man.
My dolphins already out of it.
So, yeah, you know.
You know what, Carol? In the media man, you know what? My giants, you know, way we breathe Breathe, is that's the way you say it. Breathed whatever.
Some life into the seizing Daniel Jonas balloons some knife intimacies.
You go. He blew some life into the season.
Hopefully say Kwan comes back soon, you know? My gosh, No.
You know, tell me about what? I'm going to keep you in the chat.
I'm gonna keep you in the chat.
And I'm gonna keep everyone in the chat, and then I'm a lot of often. Then we'll come back and attack.
Just talk for a minute.
All right? I appreciate it.
Uh, Andy, give us some last words real quick.
And they'll have the media day on Monday, so we have a little bit and no next new to talk about.
We're gonna ****yze.
Probably are every sentence and the mood.
The guy that sent it in, right? No.
The season starts appreciation of the training camp.
I know you know how we are crazy next, and we're just gonna, you know, check for the shortest clips on Twitter and YouTube and stuff like that and just, you know, see, support the language from the guys from the training capsule.
I'm happy, you know, we're gonna have more materiality ****ysed.
Yeah, and that's probably SportsCastr think works out for us.
And we're gonna be No, You had me on the good work here.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I kind of like it. I like it.
You know, there's some things I'm trying to figure out.
I'd like to get to chat on the screen.
I usually have to chat on the screen.
If not, then I figure something else out.
Um, but you know, when I do some live games, I think it's gonna be pretty good.
And if they ever get to do some of the other things that I was thinking about, What the world that I was talking about, where they play a game and I could stream the game and then I'm able to ah, you know, commentate the game while we stream in the game.
That would be, and that'd be really nice.
So, you know, we'll see how the hell we'll see.
We'll see how that goes.
But I'm definitely gonna start doing some things on here along with YouTube.
So it's good for joining us here today? Yeah.
Said everybody who joined today.

I'm hoping to be able to do do a breakdown every game are just someplace.
Someone like somebody important plays in the game.
You don't really get into it that way.
It was going to take time to be able to find those, you know, cut those plays out.
But that's what I plan to do.
Yeah, so I like that I like those same.
So far that the platform, the school So Hey, man, Right now, I'm in preseason right now, you know, saying trying to get this platform worked out.
So your Boylan's Thomas, by the way, just got signed by the Nets.
