So I haven't streamed in quite a while on, um, Well, the reason for that is's I had a pretty major surgery on my ankle recently.
Um, God wants to join.
I played basketball.
My whole life had played, um, middle school, high school, uh, extended my career two years into college, and I've had a really, really bad luck with injuries despite being very, very in shape and playing basketball constantly.
Um, I've broken my left ankle twice A sprained it countless times.
And I even had a great three spring in July of 2018 which was pretty horrific.
And I probably didn't go about the recovery the way that I should have.
Um, I was back playing basketball within, like, a month turned out, working out on it constantly, and, um, all last year. That's what I was doing.
And as time went on, more and more and more, um, my uncle became just to the point where I was having pain in it every single day, all day.
No matter what I was doing, it was constantly clicking.
I was getting locked up, so I went to go see a doctor so spraining my ankle like every time I played basketball and, as I noticed, of throwing him a Ryan through diagnostic testing with chronic ankle instability, which is when just repeated sprains to the ankle.
Which is the ligament.
The imperative of talent.
Popular ligament in the ankle, which controls the version.
The version of the ankle.
Which is what if you go too far with one of those directions? This is what a sprain is.
Um, that happened to me and the M R.
I showed chronic deterioration and terrors, so I had surgery done for that on the first of this month, and the recovery has been it's been pretty extensive.
Um, it sucked have been bedridden.
I just now have been put in the hard cast.
I'm able to sit at the desk, but I've been sitting in my bed for no past 14 days, just literally playing video games and watching TV.
I've had to have my leg elevated and I stepped like almost all times.
So that's why I haven't done any of these.
A unwrapped sports has been very understanding.
It worked with me on understanding as to why I haven't been able to.
But today is the first, really the first day where I'm able to sit down at my desk and I have my foot in the cast dangling right now, and it's not in pain.
So that's where I've been.
Um, that's why I've been streaming.
Um, really haven't really been too active.
Uh, it sucked, but it's what I have to do.
My ankle already feels a lot better.
I went to my two week check of and it's healing Fantastic, the ankles extremely stable.
So, um, it's probably like a 45 month full recovery, but it's well worth it.
But that's why I haven't had any of these streams.
Honestly, I don't even know.
Last time I screamed, Um, that's where I've been, but I've been watching A lot of basketball is a result of its own out of work and everything.
So, um, first talks in basketball right now.
Um, I guess we'll start with Nixon.
Simon Knick fan, um, to start the year.
The first game I forget who we played actually was the Spurs was the Spurs, and we actually played with the Spurs.
Really, really well, R.
Barrett, in the first game had 20 something points.
He looks like our best player at times.
Um, we contend with them.
We ended up not being able to close it out.
That's OK for a very young team.
Um, after the first time, I think we played the Celtics next week, next to be stuck with Celtics.
Then they blew it open, Um, and then just off the first, like five games, I think there was only one blow out, and the Knicks were sticking with every single team. R. J.
Barrett Times It looks like the rookie of the year.
He's looked like the best player in the next at times.
But then my last week. This week.
We'll know last week happened.
Um, last week happened.
They played the Cleveland Cavaliers at home and got absolutely blown out.
And in classic next fashion, we overreacted out of control.
It seems like James owns the one that called for that emergency press conference or whatever it was to really just He wanted to Steve Mills and Scott Perry to address the MB New York media and let him know that, um, as disappointed as the fans are in the media is we are.
We built this team to be much better than this is not the results that we wanted on then. From this.
Adrian votes in a row ski and other MBA from reporters speculating that, um, this they were setting up for the departure of David Fizdale.
Which one is completely unfair? Because it's not David Fizdale full.
It's just actually ass tonight.
And stupid because I don't know how you're supposed to build a winning culture when every two years the Knicks are firing their head coach, going back to 2012.
Oh, thanks, Coop.
I appreciate it, but that comes up.
I appreciate that, buddy.
Um, we're going back to the 14,013 season with Mike Woodson, which is last season that they were Good eggs Actions.
Wrote an article about the latter half of this decade dating back to the last season.
They won 54 games when Fitz, four and 28 there, the third seed, they got to the second round of the N B A playoffs, and they lost to the Indiana Pacers, which eventually pushed the Miami Heat to seven games.
Um, the next season they win 38 games from like that 37 games next season. They would like 17.
Then they were, like 20 some 30 something again, then 20 something that 17 last year on.
Through that process, they've had Mike Woodson.
He was 12,013 13 14.
Then the hard Derek Fisher Derek Fisher lasted among your a year and 1/2.
They fired him and then Kurt Rambis took over.
From there, they hired Jeff.
Horn is accused there for two years.
They fired him. Now David Fizdale is here.
He's on a second season.
We're already talking about firing him.
So I don't know how you are going to build a winning culture when you're firing coaches after two years, um, and giving them rosters that are just destined for failure.
Right now, it looks like Marcus Morris is like one of our best perimeter players, and he's clearly a four.
But he explained the three because we gave Julius Randle $63 million a year for three years to play the four for us.
But then we gave marks more 50 year to the play.
The three that makes no sense could afford and granted.
He was awesome against the maps.
He was easily the best player for us in that game.
He had to step back.
Game winner Hey did really well guarding Chris up on the Knicks.
E guess some positives are dear.
Barrett's been awesome.
He's stuffing the rookie of the year race.
He's probably looked like the best player on the floor for the next time.
Marcus Morris against the map.
That was awesome.
Frankie Maquinas Defense has been really good.
He looks more comfortable in all guns.
Um, Kevin Knox is shooting 44% from deep.
If you want to shoot 40% he said, he put in the work from there.
He looks good out there.
He still can't bend at all.
Um, so I like that Dennis Smith Jr had an awesome game the other night.
The next desperately need just someone who stepped out of the starting point guard.
It's one of the most important positions in basketball is well, you know.
So, uh, if he could be that for the next, that's awesome.
uh, just heading into the rest of this year.
I wrote an article.
Um, I'm just done with just looking forward to the draft.
We've been doing this for seven years and it's we're still looking forward to the draft on the Knicks.
Actually hit the draft, right? We've drafted Kristaps Porzingis.
Kevin knocks R J.
Now, um, even some second round guys like Damian Dotson, we've found Alonso career undrafted, the scouting department and recruited.
And just the our draft process is actually good.
But the problem is, we don't have We can't build a culture.
Ah, winning culture.
And we can't attract the free agents to take those young guys and really help them develop and build and start contributing to a winning basketball.
Um, so that's why I wrote it then.
This year is gonna be another sad year to be a Knicks fan.
I thank you, Tammy Target.
Hey, what's going on, bro? How you doing? Um, that's what I was gonna be another side.
You're to be a next and which sucks.
But what you gonna do? But I guess getting into the rest of the MBA, I guess we'll talk some rookie's job transplant. Fantastic.
I've It probably does.
CP three day CP three's Good Man.
Um, I think people confuse contracts a little bit too often with the player we got.
His contract sucks, but he's He was good for them last year in the elimination game against the Who is it the Warriors? Last year he put up, like 28 7 or something like that.
Uh, you have fantastic.
Last night. Gallery was fantastic.
SG a fantastic to, um, not getting him.
He said he's gonna be a future All star for sure.
Um, cools Steven Adams.
You have a good team.
I said that they were going over achieve this year if they didn't blow it up, and I don't think they're actually gonna end up really The only one that I think they end up trading is if they generate enough interest is gallon oryx.
I think a lot of contenders would love him.
And he's an expiring deal.
Um, Adams to CP three will be hard to deal with.
Still good, But you're going.
He's looked fantastic this year.
Um, John Moran last night against the Grizzlies.
I forget how many points you finished with.
But he had to hear that highly behind the back scoop layup in traffic.
He had that major dunk where he was just dribbling through the entire defense off a rebound hit the game winner against the Hornets.
I came up clutch against the Nets and went toe to toe with Carrie Irving up clutch log.
So that's why I'm super exciting, too.
Dude, if you think being a Cowboys fan is a mess, man, I'm a Jet fan and I'm a Nick Finn.
It's not good ball, but, you know, way stay loyal to New York sports.
It is who the Cowboys play this week you have against the Vikings actually was disappointing.
I don't want to just go home, Mama.
You guys won that game Of the only the minimum, you're lying there Winnable game.
Jets! Listen, I think just for the Redskins pull it up now.
Yeah, the Redskins this week. Katherine Herbal.
What? The NBA games that are onto you nuts at Bulls carrier brings out for though Bucks.
Pacers of hornets put in extra Norland swell cans like me.
He Rockets team rules. That's good.
One to watch to Logan's has been fantastic.
Raptor, Mavericks Trouble.
Your Spurs, Hawks Clippers are the Hawks Have the L A.
Back to back yet? A leader. Small owner.
You wrap this up here my go with another one to move today, but they go on the joint.
