And I'm sure there's gonna be some more information that comes out later on this evening.

Ladies and gentlemen, the first thing that I want to talk about is Damian Dotson.
News came out about 2 a.m.
That Damien Dotson is going to be out for the entire preseason, and I don't think that's a good look for Damian Dotson.
There's already a glut.
We know there's a glut at shooting guard spot with R.
Barrett Wayne Ellington, Alonso Tray, Of course, Damian Doctor was included in that shooting guard glut.
Reggie Bullock was included in that shooting guard glut.
You know he's going to be reevaluated in November.
He had ah spinal fusion operation over the during the off season, so he'll be reevaluated in November.
Most likely won't return until January.
Sometime around, then dami Dotson.
You know he's got already got to compete with the three guys that I mentioned earlier, Reggie R.
Barrett Alonso trailer and Wayne Ellington.
And now he's gonna be out for the entire preseason.
So when he comes back, he's gonna have to get into shape, right, basketball shape.
And then he's got to find a way to crack the rotation.
We'll see how it all plays out.
You know, I definitely wanted Damian Dotson to be.
I want to see his development.
I want to see him in the rotation.
I'm going to the game October the seventh.
I wanted to get a chance to see them.
Me, that doctor in October, the seventh verse.
The Washington Wizards.
But it doesn't look like it's gonna happen, so we'll keep.
We'll stay updated and we'll let you know what's going on with Damian Dotson.
Uh, as as updates come along, all right.
David Fizdale He gave a run down on the weight training camp, went the first day of training camp, went we're gonna take a listen to David Fizdale.
Lt's about eight minute interview will listen to that, and, uh, let's let's go.
Let's take a listen to David Fizdale right now and they will break down and we'll talk about what he said during his interview This is David Fizdale, ladies and gentlemen, and I'm going to get it started right about now. Let's go.
Very competitive practice will spend most of the brackets on defense, hammered home our concepts.
And, uh, I feel like you guys are pretty smart group that pick up stuff fast.
I was the energy that's asked way.
Experimented a lot last year.
Way looked at a lot of different stuff.
What fits best far team way feel like what we're doing now is really the best pockets for Yeah, I made some tweaks, you know, But overall, every team in camp has to get into meat, potatoes, that our system.
So how you go about doing that? You know, it's it's pretty commonplace.
Frank is gonna see what show you kept coming back.
Only frustrating part about last year with injuries.
You know, roughly this almost 40 games last year because of injuries, that was always, you know, tough to juggle working them back in and get his confidence back and stuff like that.
But, you know, I'm really happy with, right? He's come in and, you know, he had a great summer today.
You had a real competitive.
Has huge this year.
When you talk about player development, nothing develops a guy better than you know, somebody kicking it.
So having moved here is really a real blessing for us and his attitude.
Hopefully, the rest of the team can personified about what r.
J having veterans around.
Yeah, I think that was the good part about the summer and the people that we signed.
We signed some real tough pros, guys that's played in playoff games, guys, that's been through this week, get ups and downs of it.
And you know, they have those kind of guys around here for all of these young guys.
I really good, Julius.
I mean, I've heard it before, but you know, we're not.
Thio take what other people have judged guys on.
I got a coach him to be his best, and that's all I care about.
Is this making? All of these guys are the best defensive players.
I don't think he had his welcome today.
I mean, it was competitive today.
You can ask me about it, but he had a welcome welcome, man.
When you start talking about, you know, Kevin knocks and markets Morris at the small forward right there that puts you.
That makes you a pretty big so you could just see the pecking order down the line.
You can put a lot of different guys on the floor, but you know how to play Bobby and Mitchell together with Marcus Morris.
That's a really big lineup on R.
Barrett is no small guy at two or three, either.
So, you know, you look at Frank and Elford or big Guards.
Dennis may not be as big as nobody jumps a touch higher on the backboard than the rest of them.
So, you know, I really like the fact that we have that size and length, and I was just making sure that way I don't know how I am with those numbers.
You guys like to put numbers on these guys.
I'd just like to put him out there Now.
This year, I feel like we've got so much versatility, commits in a lot of different lineups, you know? But if you want to say position wise, he's a five.
I could put him out there with Marcus Morris had before on, put a lot of pressure on a defense that way.
Kevin was very vocal today.
He does a lot by by example, way he works, the way he goes about getting in early, staying late, coming back in at night, you know, and just even in our conditioning tests.
He ran extra with next to Mitchell to help pull the crew.
That's he's not talking.
He's just doing, I want something markets Morris would be a big leader on our team is, well, he's more discipline.
Multiple times guys tried to get him up in the air.
Hey, really? Did a great job of stand down or shot fakes and keeping his hands out on cheap files.
You know, he's really coming into his own understanding how he can really be effective in because this is now a second lap and I think it's more comfortable with what's facing his strength in this post.
Defense is is much better early.
All last year, bigger guys were given problems today just backing down.
But he's a lot tougher about down and out again.
I don't like you.
I don't like making those predictions athlete like that.
You don't know what he could do what you can turn into.
He's gonna tell me all about you.
Have you seen his development with his body? That could translate.
Yeah, you could say he's really put on some muscle.
I think that's just gonna help him, especially when it comes to guarding guys around the rim and finishing in the paint.
I think he'll be able to absorb more contact, but you really took pride and getting themselves bigger and stronger.
What do you think that I mean, just film way put in are just a ton of time and talking about it.
Way held him accountable in practice.
DeAndre Jordan wasn't food quarter that helping them understand being disciplined and using his voice.
And so you know all of those factors.
I think, you know, by the end of the year you saw he was he wasn't getting in foul trouble that much.
So you know, he's now coming into this year a little more experience, and I think slow down for a little bit all times a lot way changed the whole life on uh, now we got we got a team that can retain information and execute what you're trying to do a little bit better.
You know, I feel like again the versatility that we have on, you know, I want to do things that utilizes that versatility.
Maximizing defense changes way one on one full quarter that everybody big wins and the guards have to defend each other one on 144 live just to get them to understand.
We have to play defense like that.
If we want to have a chance to win screaming setting before a lot better, it's a lot better.
It's a lot less movement.
It's more official.
He put in a lot of time on the fundamentals this summer.
You know it, but it's a process.
He'll have days where it's not as great, but I think consistently now he's got a shot that has a better chance of going there.
I want when I want a full court.
That was, I don't know if you want to call it pressing, but we're gonna pick up way.
You know, Wang Ellington declared it the summer that we have to pick up 94 feet on.
That goes for everybody, everybody.
If your man's bringing the ball up, you gotta get up there and meet him.
Andi have a defensive presence on the ball.
Some of these guys in the league.
You don't want to be up there just trying to pressure because they'll go by you.
But wait, Gotta build toe having.
Now, if we want to be a top defense, obtain that, we're gonna pick you up.
Well, you know, we're coming in there, report that they gave you guys before, but everybody else, for the most part, they're not feeling.
Yeah, I see that.
I apologize, folks.
Okay? Yeah, yeah, yeah, Yeah.
Well, you know, now back.
I know, right? You know what? You know what? Let me go back to what I was saying and you missed everything that I was saying, and I can't even cut that out, you know? Mean, But anyway, I can't even cut that out to make it to make it a video.
I guess we're gonna have to, But hey, now back now, now back.
I know I know what happens, right? Because I haven't cut off because I wanted to make sure that everyone could hear the video, you know, saying, but now I'm back.
But now I'm back.
So basically some of the things that I said that I like that I heard from David Fizdale is that they were gonna pick up 94 feet.
You don't say that.
We're gonna play some pressure defense, pick up 94 feet, not really press the ball.
But they were gonna pick up for court.
You know, I'm saying that's why I like that.
I was hearing that about you know, what David Fizdale was saying.
Um, I also like that.
I like some of the things he was saying about the vets, you know, saying about the veterans.
You know, I like what he was saying about the vets about the vets actually being, ah, not really vocal, but being there and showing guys how to do it.
I'm running laps with you. I'm staying late.
I'm being the I am being the guy that is showing its setting the example, you know, saying and then we're talking about Mitchell Robinson.
Mitchell Robertson was, um ah, we're gonna talk about Mitchell Robinson working on that jump shot, but he's staying on his feet.
You're staying on his feet is not going after every shot and all those type of things.
You know, I'm saying s Oh, I like the things that I heard for Mitchell, from David Fizdale gives me definitely gives me some some hope for the season and everything that's going on.
And, um, you know, And if they can implement these things, you know to say they can implement these things, they got executed complete season, You know what I'm saying? Uh, now I also picked up that David Fizdale said, We have guys this season.
We have guys that can actually, basically, he said, We have guys that can that can retain some things.
We have guys that can retain.
When I'm teaching guys that can retain it and execute it, You don't say which says, You know, last year he didn't have guys that could execute.
He didn't have guys that could retain it, you know? I'm saying so.
Once again, I apologize for the silence.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sitting here talking and you guys didn't hear a thing that I was saying.
But everything that I just said is what I said during the silence, you know, saying I apologize for that, but let me get to my man Rides real quick.
All right, rise.
What's going on, brother? Coming.
Cool, but yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Um, do you think do you think that David Fizdale could execute, execute, execute the things that he's saying, Man, when I went in with a man like when a man has a woman because he has a beautiful one hour? I know it has nothing to do with the Topping where he commanded sued toe have a I don't know.
I feel like he could.
I feel like with the swagger he has, Um, I feel like fix those like the man for it.
Um, I also feel like angry player that he kind of got it.
Didn't seem like you said earlier.
He had no, but nothing worked with He had a promise.
He had to goto What's his name? Well, okay, beast in our neighborhood because he didn't want to come to New York. He was on communication.
So for him, the first year was just trying.
I read the symbols and the simple I'm not going to pretend like, but players like the guy.
We're not his, you know, it was just a lot of ah, How did Steve Mills and Jackson decisions? So, you know, I'm trying to give him a chance.
You know, I'm not trying to go our own coach.
Every lost we got last year, you could sell peoples and pain, like, just like me is the faces, the reactions of every plate.
So and I mean, I'm glad would he mentioned about Mr Robinson again.
You know, I'm aboard the tree years, the mission Robinson.
So I'm confident sometimes he just get a little softer, you know, sometimes, you know, But then again, he's young.
He's just turning 23.
So it's like is a learning kind of the learning of experience in the sense of like, little by little.
Okay, um but yet trying to catch up dates.
Ladies and gentlemen, we got some training camp updates for you, Isaiah.
What's going on, man? I don't know if you've got the chance to see, uh, hear anything for training camp, but you know, so right now David Fizdale is talking defense.
You see, soaking defense was going on. He's talking defense.
How you feeling about that man stalking? I'm really I said it before the show Charlotte, that enchanted everybody.
It's no score and said, You know, I'm not really worried about us.
We have a lot of people that can put the ball through the hoop.
Collectively, I'm more focused on the the way for us to get the 40 wins, playing defense and talking about your team ball.
So, really, that should be the main focus of training campus.
To me be the trench and journals and just being a defensive minded team, cause that's how we're gonna get to 40 Windows, if that's what it was for that collectively, that's what we all want.
I mean, of course, you're gonna get to more than 40 wins, but I feel like everybody's goal is to get around 40 win.
That's how we're going to get.
The 40 wins is by playing defense and actually, you know, playing the right defense of playing real hard defense, you know, So I feel like that's a gourmet focus throughout this whole season.
It's putting defense for first before any because, like I said, we got knocks on God.
Rando we got so we got saying we got all these guys that could put the ball through the hoop again.
Well, I wouldn't be surprised if we score a lot of appointments.
Just about playing defense.
Okay, guys, they got fixed camera, man, because, you know, we're just looking at your lips talking, man.
You know what I'm saying? Yeah.
Like I said, I'm not worried about that school.
Know what about scoring? I'm worried about playing difference, man.
I'm saying and I think we have the sort of boy I think it's a little late yesterday.
I think we got guys to do it.
You know, we got Mitch.
We got Frank. I think it could be a defender.
I think I know those capable of being a defender paying Depay and plays defense, so I'm not really worried about that.
I just got a differently to be our main focus point throughout this whole season.
No matter what, That we got a hit, everything else comes.
And get the Andy and then we get to a phone call.
Then we're gonna listen to R.
And yes, you are going to be able to hear it. Excuse me. I made a couple of mistakes.
You know, this is a time of day that I'm usually not on, so I got to get adjusted.
I mean, just, you know, I had to.
I had to do some work for some clients earlier on, and then I jumped on.
So excuse me for for the mistakes people, Andy, You know what? All of them.
I don't know if you got a chance to listen to fizz, but, um Oh, all right, So tell me.
Tell me what you liked about it.
What you didn't like about it.
Uh, well, he was talking defense, like the artist before, but we're gonna see about that.
He said also that some guys got banged up.
Gigi Ah, R J J, uh, had also interview, uh What? We're going to get death, I guess, Uh, what you know, just like every time.
Politically stuff and stuff like that.
They think he also mentioned that they were playing one on one full court defense.
That was surprising.
He said that they make the cart with the center.
So so that that would be an interesting thing to tow watch only even for a couple of minutes.
Also, I don't know if you saw I bought it in the Facebook group that Mitch was working on his three with knots and then actually, he was scaring them with a higher rate.
And then Kevin So but it's what he's working on. He's working on.
And we'll see if he's gonna be ableto you know, You know, we'll see what they be.
It what we'll be able to do.
Let me get to Ah, let me get to a phone call and then I'm gonna get to We're gonna listen to R. J.
I call your live another, but Nick's was popping.

It s So how do you feel about training camp in what you heard so far? Well, training camp.
I'm glad he finally got here since I'm a bad house and I follow it all the time.
And I'm not too crazy about the full court pressure that you guys are talking about.
I remember when Rick Pitino used a long time ago.
Almost killed Big Fan doing this week.
I mean, it was fresh printing special the time.
I mean, it worked, You know, it is, um, do some work.
But I mean, uh, not all the time.
I think it can be used for, uh, apparently, you know, you know, we can do some other things.
Also, I think we've got a young team that a lot of leg under us, and I think the veterans still got a lot of a lot of leg, so maybe it will work, You know, we have to have an open mind and in regards to ah, Dawson.
You know, You know, I was really hoping he was gonna be healthy for the start of training camp, but I guess he's not gonna be ready.
So that's a little down.
Yeah, uh, we have enough people, you know? We have enough people toe battle.
I think that's from the this year we're gonna make the player because there was a problem.
I think, uh, the team's gonna gonna gonna be good.
I really like your Liza Randall.
And how did you really, really love that? I think, uh, we're gonna be good.
I think everybody's gonna come in and work if we can stay healthy and, uh, we can create a culture with the coaching and the players, I think we'll be good to go.
Yeah, I agree with you.
I agree with you.
And I think we got the guys to do it, you know? I mean, so hopefully hopefully, you know, this training camp is the start of something, man.
Hopefully is the start of something. A peach.
I appreciate you calling.
You don't say no.
I'm gonna be I'm probably gonna be doing some things only day a little bit more.

Yeah, also for the on Saturday for the for the open practice.
I'm gonna be checking you guys out.
Yeah, it sounds good.
I'm not gonna be at the open practice.
Um, you know, Ah, buddy of mine is getting married, someone being the wedding, so I won't be at the open practice, but okay, Yeah, but but But I should be a bit, but, you know, I'll be doing something.
I'll be doing some live stuff, you know, just talking about it afterwards at some point.
But okay, I might make a great e c u, my brother.
Have a good one.
A case I folks, and we got some new guys join the chat we got Ah, Davon.

You'd be notified anytime I go live.

All right, so let's take a listen to rg Barry.
And we got this in r J bad.
I'm gonna bring the video over in just a second.
And and, uh, you know, this is his first n b A practice.
Pretty sure he's excited about that.
I know I would be this Take a listen.
We're not taking a listen to this one.
Let me get to it.
Let me let me get to and then we'll take a listen in the mean time.
In the meantime, we'll go back and here we go.
We got R J bird up right now and the same.
I mean, Coach Fisher did a great job getting us in here.
We worked a lot on defense.
What do you guys want? Me coach? Just telling us he wants to be no great defensive team, man.
And the only way it's gonna happen, it's just keep working at it every day.
Like where? What was different level physicality out there? What you're used to.
I know you did something, Booth.
You got the best here.
Big, strong guys.
Definitely a different level of physicality.
But i'ma get used to it.
I feel like I got a good body.
What they want to ask you about that.
And I got Knicks fans excited.
Just elaborate a little bit about that.
I mean, to be honest, I think it's like anybody anytime I get an opportunity.
I mean, who would I think everybody wants to dunk on everybody.
So anytime I get an opportunity, 90 court pressure got something done in all levels.
I mean, you saw it last year.
We're picking up full court, so I'm kind of used to it.
Just gonna It's a different game.
You know, a lot of veteran guys.
So just gonna have to figure it out.
Do you feel different? It's still practice, You know, a lot.
A lot of learning, a lot of teaching going on.
And there's great.
Especially for me.
A young guy trying to soak up as much as I can.
Images mostly was appointed to you for sure.
It was great, you know? Came in every day.
Just we're working on for me.
My theme this year is learning.
So I'm just trying to learn as much as I can.
Like, I keep saying that just to get used to the guys used to the physicality, especially right now it is great.
So I feel ready going into this evil I think he came screaming with once he was on my team.
So you saw video somewhere working on a step back three pointer? Is that something that shot is there? Take it.
Soon passing, going bigger.
Guys, I'm about to be in a two way player level through this.
Really? Right now I'm working my tail off on the defensive end.
I'm just trying to get better there on that way.
So it's always wants a defensive guy on the court, you know? So if I could be that especially starting out or whatever I could do on both sides on do whatever you know speed.
And yeah, it's funny if you're smart with it and you're smart on how you do things and keep your movements precise.
They don't even give you an advantage or help you keep up.
Even with a stronger have you? Are you with different users? It's an adjustment, but I've been working on it since since that close to death like anybody is an adjustment.
But I hope you find out i e.
I think Minister alive Kenny punches on him.
It was just he was in a bad spot with the best.
All right? You know, I say this about R.
J Barrett folks, Um, he is just elated and happy to be in the n b. A.
You know, saying, uh, he's just excited to be a nick.
He's excited to be in N.
B A, and I don't think you can ask most more than that, you know, from a young player to just be excited to be part of the N b A.
I don't you just can't ask any much more than that.
You know, I'm saying because if he's excited to be in the n b A.
That means that you know he's not gonna take it for granted.
That's That's the feeling that I get from all J.
Barry's not gonna take it for granted.
You know that he's gonna give you everything that he has every time that is on the floor, and I think he's just as that pedigree, you know me.
It makes me feel good to just him talking and and and see how excited he is just to be in the n. B. A.
The overall theme that I'm getting so far from this first practice and you know we heard about R.
Barrett once again is defence.
That's the overall thing defense.
You know, Sandy said, Coach wants a defensive guy on the floor all the time.
You know, I mean, that's what I'm getting right now.
An overall theme of defense, defense, defense, defense, you know, and hopefully this continues the wild training camp in the balls over into the regular balls opens in preseason and then into regular season.
All right, so let me hear what these guys got to say.
Kind of Mark. Mark.
I'm coming to you. My brother.
All right? Was good. Mark.
I can't hear you, bro.
Still can't say I don't know what's going on.
Okay, there you go.
No, Still, K, I would let me get to let me get to let me get to Dave are And Dave all What's going on, man? What's up? I don't want you for so long, man.
It's just honored to be up here, man.
I'm like Humber and a little letters at the same time.
I mean, I'm just chilling, man, and nothing to be nervous about just chilling.
And I said, We deal with things that we gotta do, You know, we're talking Nick's excuse my phone for going off in the background.
Ladies and brothers.
All right, But so far, the overall feed from what we've heard from everybody is defense, you know, saying you feel good about that.
So far, the overall theme that we've heard from everybody's defense made you feel good about that way on the court first.
You know, it's, um, week.
It's, you know, it's easy to say, You know, we'll be going do it.
You know, just how it translates on the court.
Right? So I'm just gonna stay optimism, You know, I'm always not believing my team.
Um, I believe with the guys that we have is a good chance that we definitely gonna play way better defensive play last year because Lucas definitely not having a, uh, body publishes.
Definitely not having it.
And who will try the body of Jewish rebels? Because he is So it's gonna be Mmm.
It's like in terms of in terms of power, like Pierre mass and strength.
Today, I was hanging out with everybody going to bury us, right? You know, I don't think anybody going Villiers and be careful how you speak to us tour because the train porters and Rando Uh oh, man.
We got some guys we got.
Yeah, we got some guys.
I feel you did a few days.
Like, if you know what it is I'm sobering up and like, you know, that's that's how big it is.
Be careful how you told her, You know, especially with the guys that we have, you know? Be careful.
Yeah, I feel you.
I can't do like he bet before.
Well, the flipping bottom, right, Right, right.
That's not that's not happening With this collapse happened in dish it.
That's not happening.
And, you know, the locals were talking, you know? Right.
You know, we're all defensive team and stuff like that.
Let me let me get that.
Let me see if I could get the mark and see if Mark got his stuff straight.
Mark was good, man.
You sounded good, man.
What's going on? No much mad, my man.
So the overall of the overall.
The overwhelming theme right now.
Training camp so far today. One.
His defense. Man, you feel good about it.
I already knew I was going to be the first thing on his menu.
I'm telling our guys everything that he took from what he learned from the Miami and Pat Riley.
That's what he's coming in to implement.
That's that's all he knows.
I'm not one bit too surprised at what physio is capable of.
I'm not so well, like get me the talent.
Yeah, well, you know well, while he still has to prove that he's capable, though, he still has to prove it.
I think he's capable, cause he showed they were talented players before he arrived in New York.
So you know, there's this something surprise.
What he can do and how you command how you command play is to do what they need to do, just like when you're R.
Come on, train the first thing he said.
The coach, that's what What's so great about what's happening right now? I don't want neither one of these plays be the face of New York Knicks.
I want the culture being a face in the Army.
I don't want none of these players be fake person.
You know, I want the coach, because again, we don't have great successful plays being the face of New York.
I rather the coach.
It's better for that so they could take its development and helps.
It's a game, so I like how everything is going.
The coach, the coat, even when you have from Knox, the way you're speaking is everything that Coach Fitz wanting to do I not work about what is planning to do with these talented group of players, So nothing has come so surprising Me, Okay.
I just love being day gets home from playing.
All right, All right, All right.
I'm gonna get to one phone call, then we're gonna listen to Miss Robinson, folks, I call it you're alive with nothing but necks was popping.
575 World Wide Web Problem was going on with you, Bubble.
How you feeling? I'm telling man of children just got back from L.
You know, I mean, there was a little next meet up out there with Knicks fan TV.
Okay, um, you know, it was cool.
Something. Hopefully, you had a good time out there. That's cool.
Where? But let me get into it though, man.
Um, a few things to say, Uh, as far as like the defensive talk, I mean, we hit us every single year.
Don't matter if it's haunted, said Derek Fisher.
Whoever the coaches Mike Woodson, they always say in training camp are we're focusing on defense.
We're going to be defensive team, but realistically, you need defensive players in order to be in the 15 Maur.
You really good defensive system right now.
I didn't hear fish speak about specifics like over than a trap in the corner.
We're gonna play, you know, let deny this, but I'm not saying they should give us always techniques and secrets.
But maybe I could come here and tell us, like move.
But the philosophy of the defense's me did mention there was some sort of a defensive system.
But, you know, if you could elaborate a little bit more so what the focus of the system was like because he has to play to the strengths.
So I would say that funnel in regards to Mitchell Robinson.
But the problem with that, a lot of times the guards, they don't play defense, they just let him go by him and just go straight to Mitch.
And you've been a foul trouble.
You know? That's just one thing you know.
Another thing is as far as R.
Barrett, I honestly have the utmost confidence in this kid.
I feel like he has that it factor.
Like he wants to be great.
He's determined to be great, and he's gonna work hard as Hell t do that to outplay own place, and he wants to be go down.
It is probably the best snake ever.
Like I could see that he has a determination and I think that he could work towards being really, really, really good play.
You know, I can't say it's gonna be the best makeover or even, you know, Kobe Bryant life.
But he has that.
It seems like he had that desire in a going to be great.
And not a lot of players have that desire.
They won't even say like, I want to be with the best play ever had.
Only a few players say that, you know? I mean, that's putting certain pressure on yourself, you know? So that's basically how I feel about that situation, man.
And you know what? I don't mind him.
Like he said he wants to be booking a year, so I don't mind him coming out and saying he wants to be Look of the year.
You know, the cookie cutter, uh, response to some of those questions about Rookie of the year and stuff is, you know, I just want to do what's gonna be best for the team and all that stuff.
You know, he said he didn't say it in this interview, but he said in the past he wants to be rookie of the year.
Hey, wasn't afraid to say, you know, you know, when the ex who would you want to dunk on Kristaps Porzingis? Yeah.
I like that is not afraid to take those challenges and speak up and say because, like you said, that means he's gotta work to go get it when you want you speaking into it.
Once you speak it now you got to stand up to it.
You gotta go get it, You know, I mean, so yeah, I like that about him.
Did you see his reaction when the reporter double down in action? Oh, they just, you know, you want to dunk on.
There was no smirk.
There was no Somalia.
And he wasn't my high It No, he had a dead stone face again.
I said that, you know, he had a little, you know, media friendly face look, expression on his face.
He wasn't joking when he said that you know that means he's coming out.
He's coming ahead this year.
He's gonna come at best.
He's gonna come at young dude, and you don't play his own play defense and do it better.
You got something? Prove You got a chip on the shoulder.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And you heard him say it in an interview.
He said, You know, Coach Fizdale coach wants to always have a defensive guy on the floor.
So if I can come in and play defense and be one of those guys, then I will be on the floor.
You know, um you know, people always ask him what he wants to work on, and he always says everything in back in this summer, you know, he had a great answer to that.
He said, You know, back when I was young and people would ask me what I want to work on, I would always say everything and people would kind of take it without going to salt, you know, whatever the words that he was saying, he said, But I come into summer league and I can't finish finishing used to be one of my greatest strengths.
Now I'm in summer league and I can't finish.
That's just prove to you that I need to always work on everything you know, saying, you know, you know, because you never know when it's going to change, So yeah, yeah, I think we got the right guy, you know, saying everybody wanted sign.
But I think we got the right guy.
I think we got the right guy.
I mean, I might sound crazy, but all year long I was I was r J.
Dude, I just didn't like that down the stretch.
He kind of became tunnel vision, you know? I mean, I like that he wants to take that last shot, But every now and then you got to pass that Brockett if they collapse on them.
So discern assets, obviously of his game. You have to work on him.
He's a rookie, but when he mastered the game, when he gets a jump shot, his jump shot becomes reliable and he has confidence.
And I think at that point, it's pretty much a rat because he sees the game, you know? I mean, like, these superstars like, Oh, I like you put the ball in his opinion, is gonna make the right place.
I was gonna score, get to the foul line or make a pass that right? Do.
Because he has the vision of you, your old three levels.
J. Barrett has that sort of potential.
And, I mean, you could play defense.
That's a collective is a two way player.
That would be crazy because we haven't had a two way wing, and I don't know how long.
That's actually, you know, uh, above average offensive player, you know? Okay.
Well, hey, I appreciate you called in man is, you know, middle of the day.
So you may be on your way, right home from work or whatever it is.
Um, appreciate you listening.
Yeah. I mean, I was also there was this king back.
That's what I respect.
What you doing, man? You know, you see that starting next man, man.
I got a lot of respect for that man with the conversation.
Dedicated to the tattoo I like.
I like the old Their perspectives.
I don't always agree, but I love their perspective.
And someone keep lunch if you keep calling back that I appreciated, man.
Looking forward to it.
Yes, sir. High pace.
I folks, um, Now, let's take a listen.
And Mitchell Robinson, Because, you know, Mr Robinson, always a funny do man like Mitchell Robinson's.
I like Mitch Man's funny guy.
It was a light hearted kind of guy that you need, But he's a hard worker, though, saying, Here we go.
Mitchell Robinson, you're speaking on his ability, you know, speaking on shooting jump shots and some other things.
What's up? Uh, you assume that I know he got different vet now, and you've got extra work.
Can't get something done every day at the practice.
So, you know, I like that.
So you continue to grow? Last year were you relied a lot on athleticism.
Smarter defensive player now.
Um, now find my feet not sticking my hand in order to get on silly files.
You know, we just talked about that to me Coach and Julie.
So, you know, this used to be great.
I didn't get no much Know that many files.
Are you willing to give up to be a better position.
I mean, I could give it a few blocks.
I'm still telling the shot, You know, I don't get it, but not tonight.
We offer our side.
I mean, I could give up for you to be a debt from a better defense.
What? Training out big Wait to play.
But you know what happens off the same time? I mean, you know, to get hurt, so I can't worry about that.
I can get out here running Nothing.
I mean, I'm straight with my team.
How much more couple you feel now? Off the way.
Michael had Michael phone.
I mean, you're too coming up, and I'm excited.
Yeah, Yeah. I mean, I worked them all summer.
I work on something you're going to use, you know? So, yeah, yeah, we're looking forward to Yeah.
I mean, you know, So when they came in, he was like family already.
You know, we've been locking when we talk, we joke around our vibe just getting, you know, we need to be guys, guys coming on 17.
Very sense of pride.
He's gonna look forward.
And you know, Try to have a better season.
I mean, doing work hard and you play the harder It really ought to go.
We just won't play.
You can start it.
You start really be whatever you need me to do anything with that woman.
All right, That's that's our guy, man.
You know, saying I like Mitchell bothersome man, regardless of what you guys think I really do.
Like Mitchell Robinson.
I like everything that mentioned Robinson does.
He's a funny dude.
Um, brings a lot of energy.
You can see you know, the kid is an energy guy, man, he's just full of energy, you know? I mean, and I like that, he said, You know, he's learning to keep his hands low.
He's learning that he's learning to not reach, not have put his hands in there so he doesn't pick up silly fouls.
The guy asks him, Are you willing to give up a couple of blocks so that you can stay on the floor? He said, Yeah, I'm willing to give up a couple of blocks, but I'm still gonna change the shot, you know? I mean, the guy's listen, he's like this guy's a sponge.
Hopefully, he could implement it on the floor.
I think that he can't.
You know, I mean, um, about the jumpshot has been working, is working on his jump shot, working on his jump shot, you know, working on the three, working on the mid range.
And hopefully he's going to be able to actually work on that in the preseason, you know, saying because in training can't we did.
We didn't get a chance to see him actually shoot it in training camp, right? We don't get a chance to see him.
I mean, not in training camp this summer league.
We didn't get a chance to see him shoot it in summer league.
That's something that I want to see.
I want to see him be ableto I want to see in preseason.
I want to see him catch the ball at the elbow, let it up.
Maybe even if he gets open three.
It's something that you're gonna do in the season.
But pretty season is when you're getting your team ready, you don't say so.
I want to see him do it now.
The one thing that I will say and maybe I break this down in a video.
He's gotta get his mechanics right.
If he's going to be a consistent jump shooter, I'm saying he doesn't have really good mechanics shooting the ball right.
And if you look at the video, you'll see it.
I am gonna break it down, you know, so that we could see it.
You know, he's got to get his knees bent a little bit more.
He's got to get his feet good, shoulder width apart.
His feet look like they're a little bit closer together.
You know, maybe if he's right handed, I believe he's right handed.
Maybe his right foot just a little bit more forward than the left foot, you know? So he's gotta work on his mechanics a little bit.
But the guy's a sponge, you know, saying he seems it looks like he learns quick.
I have no doubt in my mind that he can and will do it.
You know what I'm saying? So, you know, Big shot out the Mitchell Robinson, you know? I mean, let me get to a phone call real quick.
Call the young love another, but Nick's was popping doing it.
Daytime, baby, You don't say it.
I'm keeping it short, You know, I'm saying, sure I'm doing it right now, you know, because it's training camp guys in practice and stuff like that.
So, you know, and I'm testing the waters little bit.
Want to see how many people actually jump on with me live? How many? You know how much people like you, me doing it live during the day, stuff like that.
So I tested it out a little bit, See what's out there.
Well, that's that.
Well, you know, black just tired.
Shout to the check.
Oh, what were we talking about right now? You know, we just listen to Mitchell Robinson, you know, talking about his, uh, his, you know, working on his jump shot.
Talk about some of the things he's working on defense.
You know, some of the good things he said is you know, that the guy's a soon as they came in, some of the vets that came in, you know, they are, uh, kind of like family already.
You know, you could sell that.
He really does respect to look up to these guys as vets because right from the beginning, he said, you know, the you know, the older guys told me Always, always work on something, do something after practice.
You know what I'm saying? He listens, and he's sucking it all lame, man.
He's He's sucking it all that.
If you can get this guy continues, May he's gonna be an all star word up.
He continues doing it like this is gonna be an All Star.
Yeah, Yeah, him and, um, bombing all our young guys. I'd do better.
It seems to be a sponge as well.
So so, you know, soaking in other advice through there, the game type mo always talking about needing turn true.
Oh, you know, that's one thing I will say that I'm a burial society.
No, but I'm a real big Dennis.
But sometimes Dennis Smith seems to be a little bit more overconfident, essentially, you know Ah, Mitch and, uh, uh, in a barrette.
They're coming in and they immediately saying they gotta learn and one of you know what I mean with Smith kind of just talked about what he does.
Well, already that, you know, I just hope he still in that storage mentality and soak up some stuff up as well.
Yeah, Yeah, I agree with you.
Sometimes he kind of talked almost like he's a vet, too.
You know, what I'm saying is instead of being in a learned, But, you know, I in some ways you gotta have that too, you know? I'm saying, um, you know, you got you gotta have ah, you know, just some of that confidence where you feel like, you know, I'm the man to You know what I mean.
Um, but anybody in his defense, he's also been, ah, people been a lot more down on him, which is when you really gotta show that, uh, the tough skin and keep that confidence.
So I will say that Yeah.
Oh, these guys are still coming in rookie second year, right? So it is a bit of a difference.
Oh, I'm excited, man.
Just this is looks like the real, real fresh start.
Oh, you know, everybody seems to be saying the right things home I didn't actually hear says, though.
Did you do a flip off? 00 no.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we checked out.
We listen to Fizdale, you know saying, You know, you just you know, he talked about the defense he talked about.
Yeah, he talked about defense, you know, picking up 94 feet.
They've been doing one on one full court defensive drills, stuff like that.
Hey, talked about.
You know, the way the vets have been working with the rookies and stuff like that, it Tony, give me one second.
I just want to look at something real quick.
Ladies and gentlemen, you see on the screen, and I know you got Ah, I know you have a little circle, you know, in the middle of this video right here.
But one thing I want to show you is this, You know, we're talking about Mitchell Robinson, and I'm gonna do something better breaking this down.
Right? But when you look at his mechanics, that let's just look at him real quick.
The first thing that I'd notice here is he's leaning back.
He's leaning back just a little bit.
You know what I'm saying? Uh, his shoulders are square, but he's leaning back.
And if you look at his feet, his feet should be to save with the length.
Same with the part of his shoulders.
That's how you have good balance and good stability on your shop.
You know what I'm saying? Uh, you know, you like him to get his knees, you know, a little bit more stable, bent a little bit more so we can get that shot up.
Listen, he's a young guy that throughout his whole life he's been able to use his height and his jumping ability to get by.
Now, N B A is gonna have to work on some other things, you know, some other mechanics and fundamentals.
These are some things that I see, you know, on his jump shot that I think he's going to need to work on in order to get better, you know? I mean, ah, but like I said, he's a young guy that I think, you know, I think he could do it. You know me.
You know, I think that, um, your meat is the kind of guy that will, you know, he'll be able to That's not gonna be a problem for him, you know? No, but I do want to see him use that jump shot in preseason, Tony.
Oh, I don't know if that's what it looked like.
He came off occur. I hope he's not doing that.
Oh, you know, like that.
I mean, I mean, it came up for karaoke.
Think that's just a drill.
You know? I'm saying, you know, we do drills like that when I do drills like that and practice, I'd do the same thing.
No matter who you are, you know will come off screens.
You know, you come off those things because it's all about footwork and getting your footwork set in, you know, having a good timing, you know, to step into your shot in those type of things, you know? Yeah, for sure.
I'm glad to see you in the data, Actually.
Uh, take the day off.
Just come on, keep listening in.
