This is next weekly, and I got gamble with me.
I got Nate with me, and we're gonna talk about what's going on with the Knicks this week.
And, um, you know, that's about it, which is gonna have some discussions about he could feel free to call in 516452246 You could jump into the whereby whereby dot com slash NBK just like any other time.
All right, so let me get to my man GMO and let me get him a man.
And I see we got guys in the chat from NBK.
That's what I'm talking about from YouTube.
That's what I'm talking about.
Glad you guys join me here, So let's get to some of these guys over handing chat and get this thing going.
Man, this is next weekly.
My new show m o was going on, man was good.
Happy to be a man is Ah, I like. I like the setup man.
This is scared to him.
I think we got some stuff to talk about with Morris, man.
Does it seem like all New York all the New York Knick fans? Ah, so am I.
We gotta keep this doing everything, which I'm Look, I'm torn between the two men, but, you know, we gotta have a long term vision regards to Morris, man.
And, you know, like I think you brought up yesterday or maybe a few chats ago.
We're talking about the Knicks.
Kind of China would drive up his value, So yeah, the Knicks right now, then it really interested.
Resistant? Because they got a guy Morris who Ah, lot of teams can use.
Lakers, Clippers year.
The king's interests.
A lot of teams air.
Interesting, this guy more so yeah, we got we got a lot of stuff to Ah, to talk about the knicks.
Yeah, that's the big things that we might as well go ahead and start there with Marcus voice.
Um, you know, we talked about it some last night after the after the Knicks and Clippers, Right? We talked about Marcus and wants a little bit.
Um, I'm so let's break it down.
One thing that I had a question about that.
I guess I got the answer.
You all know Next film school J B from Nick's film school.
Um, he said this about whether or not you can trade Marcus Morris and then re sign him in the off season.
Hey, I didn't think that you could.
Yeah, we talked about this way.
Then we say that was not we, but it wasn't there Like you, Tomas. Like there's a closet.
You can't bring a guy immediately after your son like that.
Right? I thought that there would be some kind of moratorium, right? Some length of time, you know, as to where you wouldn't be able to sign him.
Apparently, it's not the case, according to J.
B from next film school.
So apparently you can trade him, and then we sign on my guess.
Oh, you know what? I guess it's like if somebody if you wave, if you trade a player and they get waved, you can't bring him back immediately.
Oh, contend, Obviously wouldn't wait.
So hey, do that, right? So? So if the Knicks traded markets Morris to the Clippers and then the Clippers waved them.
I'm We were just speaking hypothetically here, right? And then the clippers waived them.
Then the Knicks wouldn't be ableto re sign him in all.
Seen it? They'd have to wait a year.
I guess what they don't want teams doing is saying, Yeah, we'll make this trade and then we'll waive this place so you can have them back.
But But then, But then my question is, you know, my question is this.
So then what stops? I still want to look.
Look it up for myself.
I trust the guy.
And, you know, uh, he seems to know what he's talking about, but what stops a player? Let's say I'm Marcus Morrison in your markets. Morris. Enough.
And we have a conversation, and I say, Look, listen, Marcus, we want to try to get as much as we can, so we're gonna trade you to the Clippers.
You'll have a chance to win a championship.
And if you really want to be here.
Just don't sign with him in this.
Signed with us in the off season and Mark and you say that sounds good to me.
And so then you and then you fleeced the clippers over Dr Picking a young player or something like that.
That doesn't sound fair to me.
Well, put like this.
Remember all you Yankee fan? I'm not a Yankee family.
Didn't they do this? Whatever.
All this Chapman, if correct me if I'm wrong, then day.
I mean, I knows baseball, but there's really no because thing about this way you would have unless he gets waved.
I'm pretty Something sort of something.
I was agreed upon with the collect with the the Players association, where, you know, we basically don't want any team to basically stop a player from going anywhere he wants, right? So as long as he doesn't get wait, Maybe I guess it's too obvious at all.
You just kind of like doing these little Mackin nations again.
But I mean, yeah, there's nothing stopping these guys from doing about everything I think I think Is that with the N B. A.
You know, this sounds crazy.
I don't have information on I'm just trying to think is most players when they leave, there's usually, like, say, ah, top homegrown player wants to leave ah, smaller market to go to a bigger market a play with, you know, players that he likes.
Right? You know, I can't remember the last time a player, you know, it's a nick, So it's just a weird, you know, I don't know.
Maybe if it happened off, maybe they stop it down, but yeah, I mean, this is something like the Knicks really, really want.
Invest in a 30 31 year old play and I'm not saying thing bad about is am just saying because he's older, you know, I don't think people are bad.
I know it was having with superstars, right, I'll be different.
But then a lot of superstars, because the worst teams are drafting the best players, those stupid stars, you want to leave regardless, so it just probably made because it just doesn't happen a lot.
That's what I'm thinking, but I don't know about that. R B.
Give me a first round and give me some young buck.
Let him play on a team like the Clippers.
Look, if he wins Hey, he won him a championship.
So no one's gonna complain if he loses.
Whatever you know is Ah, no se journeyman.
But it's ah, veteran player who was in his thirties anyway, the next win.
So I do that crap and I wait to the last data.
The was named, uh, chain deadline.
I do that train the Harvey.
We're not winning this year, so right, But see, that's why I think though this has got to be something because a team conflicts another team Too easy that way.
Yeah, I'll trade you.
I'll trade you, Anthony Davis, because he's gonna be a free agent this summer.
And then Anthony Davis says, Well, I'm gonna go back and signed with them.
I don't know someone.
Someone in the chat a w n Y c said he just got some from the the c b.
A website saying underweighting paid for a new contract with team trades are playing the place subsequent subsequently waived by the new team, the private team not be permitted to claim to play us or you just said, um, until one of the earlier until the early off, one year from the day of the trade.
But your life first found the last season of the player's contract.
So yeah, okay, I guess we could do a man.
If Morris is really serious about that. Listen, about this.
He goes affiliate.
He's from Philly.
I mean, you have with these guys named Al Horford, and I know he plays every position, but he saw me.
He doesn't really feel that he fits in the offense, um, and Phillies that we're a team because they don't know whether it's Simmons team don't know whether it's in be seen, assumes my Goto Lakers that that scene might just be in flux in a matter of few years.
So that's one situation, and you don't want to play with LeBron LeBron James.
The same actually gets traded.
You know he has no choice but doesn't want to play long term, longer term or four more years of LeBron a team where 80 might leave a team where LeBron has graded, you know, has come to great certain teammates.
You know, throughout his career, you mean where it's you know, you don't know LeBron James, you just get up and you know things will be done.
And But I know you have two more years after that that, you know, he probably what's the name? Ah, more seems like more of Ah, you seem just match like East Coast guy and the Clippers.
That's why the best situation where you know he might sign.
And, you know, for how many years, 23 years he stays there that he sees.
This opportunity players, you know, guys like Patrick Beverley.
Guys have this fire's kind of passion.
Wanna play defense? Play all out Strong, hard, tough.
I really see as a danger that if he leaves in a free eight as a free agent, he might sign with them for a few more years or just come back to the next.
But other than that man, if he wants to do that, he wanted he's all about the culture thing.
Only thing that I could think about was the G m, though, Is Steve Mills are Steve Miller, Scott Paris.
They're gonna be here, you know.
I mean, so you know, say they signed it he signed a contract, would say, decides extent so he doesn't get treated and those guys get removed.
And then he bring a messiah or so Miles and they don't like Morris.
Now, Morris is relegated to the bench of some weirdness, so Oh, no, Mrs.
Yeah, but But that's been the buzz.
You know, this past week that Marcus Morris is Ah, you know, he's wanted by the Los Angeles Clippers.
Now one here and stuff, you know, the Los Angeles Lakers interested in him.
And then, of course, you've got, uh now the Philadelphia 76 is interested in him.
So clearly, the Knicks are gonna have some options when it comes to Marcus Moore is One of the options is to keep him when it you no other options is to move him along.
Um, we'll see how we'll see how that works out.
We'll see how that works out for the Knicks.
Another thing? No, um, Marcus Morris cannot be extended right and then traded with no, like like you can't just mid season extend his contract for another three years.
You can't do that during this season like before free agency, because he's in the last year of his contract.
I forgot whatever the stipulation is, but he we can't just extend them.
But I think Nate was saying, Why can't we just extend them? We can't just extend his contract.
Um, I can't just extend them, you know, he's he's got to be a free agent and then the next can re sign up through free agency.
So you know how I feel like I'm breaking their necks.
To think about this, I mean, is it's team that we stat for power forwards to kind of build value and kind of trade off.
But because I think it's something like in order to extend the player, they've gotta have, like, another year left or like a team option on that plate or something like that, a team option or a player option, then I guess you can extend the contract.
But because he's going to be a restricted free agent, there is no option on this contract.
You know, there is no ah extending them.
So, you know, that's definitely gonna be it's gonna be something that we look forward to it in the coming weeks.
I mean, the trade deadline is February 6th, right? That's the trade deadline s.
So there's gonna be some interesting things that happened.
Ah, some interesting things that happened.
I'm going up soon, But in New York Knicks, let me get Nate.
Because I know Nate was having some questions about, um, you know, Marcus Morris and being able to extend them.
And I believe you.
I'm gonna leave you live Gammell.
All right, I'd go ahead and eat.
I mean, that's good to know, man.
I guess that makes sense, because, yeah, I mean, that was the case.
Then every every team would extend their player if they played well in their final seat.
Our final year. The contract.
So you know that that makes that makes sense.
Um, I think also to it kind of brings a big, bigger question is with Marcus Moore is playing so well.
I mean, is he really going to give us Ah, hometown discount? Because, you know, he's expressed He wants to stay with the Knicks, You know, he sees himself here long term and all that or oh, it's you gonna You're gonna be bought out by money.
No, I mean, he deserves to get paid.
I mean, the guy's played very well this year, you know, he's earned his.
He's earned his pay.
But I just don't want the next over pay, you know, because, um, you know, we're gonna have to fill this roster out again with other players because a lot of these other players are gonna fall off again.
Okay, tell me what all over again.
Okay, So what's he worth to you and guys in the chat to tell me in the sports guys to chat? What is he worth? What? It's Marcus Moore's work.
I've given 20 million 20 year for how many years, And, uh, he's 30.
How old is he? He's 30.
He's going to be 31 next year.
Okay, I've given three years with an option in the third year.
Um, player option.
I give a three year deal a three year deal.
20 million at $60 million.
Three. A day of $60 million plus 20 year.
I mean, that's 29 34 you know, And I would imagine by then he's gonna start slowing down, but, you know Marcus Morris has been a very healthy player.
I mean, knock on wood.
You know, he's played.
He's been pretty healthy his whole career, you know? And he is a shooter.
So, you know, he's not really a post guy or anything like that.
So, you know, his durability is, I think I think again, the deal to 34.
I think I think you'd be okay with that.
Because here's the deal, Sim.
What are we gonna spend that money on? I mean, what what is our plan? I mean, I mean, if we're gonna go get the low, then fine.
You don't need to spend $60 million on markets, Morris.
So let me ask you this. Let me ask you this, right.
If you're going out approaches a car, you got $15,000.
You got $15,000 right? And you you know that you need a new car.
You don't just go out.
You know, you don't say.
Well, I don't have a plan yet, so I'm gonna go out and buy something else because I don't have a plan, right? You don't say.
Well, I got $50,000 but I like this television that cost $5000.
So I don't have a plan for my car.
So I'm gonna go out and buy this television.
Keep your money until you have a plane.
So I mean, so I think, and I'm not saying anything against Marcus Morris.
What I'm saying is, just because you don't have a plan for how to use your salary cap space doesn't mean you just spend it right.
And we also got to take into account i their new stars who grow in the n b A every other day in the life from a sense that, you know, we have We have nine player on this roster that, um basically all signed one year deals.
Or maybe one has another year on it or something.
Are Jewell Janis for your deal? But majority the players signed one year deals, though once again, we're gonna have another turnover where a lot of these players were not going to re sign.
So we're gonna have to fill this roster out with other players.
Now, the thing is, the free agent market is gonna be very bear.
You're not going.
There's not gonna be a lot of big names and help.
Marcus Morris might be the best player in the free market.
So in that case, if he's already played with us, he's done well with us.
It might be worth spending.
The money is like I said.
I mean, outside of that, I mean, really, Where you gonna put your money? I mean, where you gonna? How you gonna fill this rest of the roster? No, I'm saying no.
I hate about this.
And the thing about the thing that concerns me the most, Sim and I want it.
I want to say this because I think this is the biggest fear of me or fair fear of this team is that we don't even know if we're going.
Pete R, general manager and president.
So right now, nobody knows if they're going to make any moves or anything.
I guess we'll know by the trade deadline.
If nothing's done, then we know that these guys were either out or Dolan pretty much game or memorandums and said, We're not we're not making any grades.
And still, we figured things out, you know, Um, but that scares me, because free agency that stuff.
No rookie players that are coming into the draft.
See, that's into the embassy.
That stuff, like, we got a lot of instability right now with the front office.
And there's no kind of there's no kind of vote of confidence on these guys.
And I was doing would come out either say something like, Listen, we're gonna run with Mills.
We're gonna run with Perry.
We're gonna get this right, you know, give them some kind of voter confidence instead of doing it behind the scenes.
And and so you know, now, now players can see that free agents that because we're looking like we're gonna strike out again.
I mean, well, like I said, this this year is not gonna be nothing, but still, I mean, that is stability with not knowing if they're going to be there next year.
Whatever is going on.
No coach and all that.
I mean, man, I mean, are you gonna convince players to come to New York when you know you've got your no president and GM giving up? Ah, 10 gain memorandum about how bad they've played, and basically, they were plans on firing their coach.
I mean, I don't know you.
I don't know if you heard about that, but a lot of people have been voiced their opinion about that.
Like Doc Rivers was recently saying that he thought it was wrong the way they handled Fizdale and how they should have a friend and all that.
So NBA's taken notice.
My friends are doing with their with their people and all that, and it just it doesn't look good, you know? And I don't know if maybe Dolan he's come out and say something.
Or maybe Perry and Mills you to come out.
Something needs to come out because I don't know if you go all the way to the whole season with this whole insecurity and uncer*****y no, coach and then go into the offseason and expect even sign anybody.
You know what I'm saying? No.
Yeah, yeah, definitely.
Gotta get around that.
You you was gonna jump in and say something? Yeah, I was gonna say, if naked amuse because I think everybody other people in a kind of charming, But I don't want to talk over me so we could use a Mutis, but yeah, Yeah, the thing.
What? Marcus Morris is that I like Marcus Morris a lot, right? We can't get we can't and do the shot just seconds.
Sure, 47% from three.
What the hell that that's crazy.
He's having a ridiculous here. He's having a career year.
Essentially, yes, I have his best year of all time in his career.
Whatever the thing about that, like you said, man, the N B A.
You cannot get bogged down and say, I'm gonna give this guy money just because Because every other year there's gonna be some new guy that pops out of nowhere.
Some guy was a second, you know, first round, second round, our second year, third year, and this guy's coming to be in his own way.
He might be like, You know, that is a guy we need.
We need that guy right now, like I wish we had says.
I know people use on the kid was a Devante Graham on the Hornets.
I thought he was a rookie.
I didn't know what his kid was a second year, but again, who last year I don't remember anyone last year claiming for this kid, So all I'm saying is that if you want Marcus Morris, you got to make sure it's a pity, because if we look into the future and the other guys will be one and we can't bring him on because of Marcus Moors or whatever, then you have to understand your hamstring yourself in.
And also a guy who's 30 31 that's one little injuries could start popping up.
Yes, he's been healthy, but he's been helping in the past.
Health doesn't get better as you get older.
Part time does not play around unless you're taking steroids.
I'm not saying that you don't sign Marcus Moore's d'oh, but when you look at him, as good as the stats are, Marcus Morris wasn't leading this team to wins by himself.
Not it Sounds crazy.
What I'm saying right where you're concerned, guys, they can get you wins by themselves.
Like Gee, honest could getyou wins by himself even hard and who I'm not the biggest fans.
Ben off can getyou wins by himself.
As much as I like Marcus Morris, he wasn't doing that for the Knicks.
I was really talented, thought who has been producing the next.
We have 10 wins, right? So do you say I'm a give this guy big money? It happened to try to rebuild a coach into itself because he has really good stats.
But the team really always start playing better as a team.
When Mike Miller got got into office, I saying that that that that one on one meeting her help.
But there's like I think, I think the next have to think this one over in terms of how much you want to give and all that stuff, because again, understand me so.
But it's a team with 10 wins.
There's not a team that's like the Knicks had the Knicks were how many games have been played? I don't know, Many gives Ripley, but say the Knicks were on pace to win safe 50 games, right? And it's a team that came out of nowhere.
No one had the next winning 50 games, and Marcus Morris is 60% of that reason why the Knicks are trending to 50 wins a little bit about what I'm saying, but what I'm saying is that 10 wins is not going to get you anywhere the trend off where we're going, I guess we're gonna win more to 10 games, I think.
But that chairman of where we're going, it doesn't look like we're gonna win.
40 50 games are against it.
Players anything like that.
Now, if we weren't getting to the playoffs, I say give him the money.
Because this guy as he turned this team around his production has truly turn this thing around.
But again, well, we're trending towards what, 20 something wins 30 something ones.
Maybe so as I like him a lot, I wish Marcus Morris was younger.
I'd given that money, but again, I don't want a situation where he gets hurt.
And now he's hobbled.
The Knicks don't do well with given contracts.
The guys and he get hurt.
Antonio mcd ice.
We traded in any, uh, who's this bum from Seattle? James Jerome, Jerome James.
I've seen it where Nix have gone after older but shore veterans given them big money only for that to hurt us.
And for the most part, we just stayed away from Katie and Kyrie.
Now carries they say they alleging that he's kind of, you know, playing around with this injury.
He's going back for you.
When I get the cortisone shots and bob Line, you know Lucas having the Nets, even though they are playing better, that's a different orbit.
I'm just weary of giving big contracts t aging veterans.
I say I like market more's a lot.
Just I'm just saying, Okay, all right, all right.
Now I get it. I'll get it.
Oh, you want to jump in real quick before I want to move on and just talk about the Knicks.
Some of the games that the Knicks had, you know last week? Yeah. Anything.
Anything you wanna add there? Truthfully, I want to see doing that.
We should trade them for assets trade into the Clippers for first round trading.
Do Philadelphia, where he's from.
These at home for two second round.
Think that they are for second round six.
Feels like 30 person second pick.
I like what you're doing on this thing is being Amanda is being a leader, but you know it's not really getting us in.
It's like a young player who puts up a lot of points on the party, and that's what he did.
I stand used very good.
I like the party's a legal, but he isn't doing anything to further us.
These other guy, there's like the Lincoln tripping leadership of Juice.
At what cost are you going to give him 2025? But he knows next year because there's no other people having a season like him this year, and everybody's gonna warn him and they're going to be just like you.
We prepared for dork him, Noah, because Washington wanted it.
I'll be going over pay for him.
Yes, because another game want him, Nate said.
For any release of another says, we'll give you 20.
We got even 25 simply because nothing watch should be here.
I don't know, just waiting for some answers right now.
The gang is known for some **** like that, but I don't think, but I I trade them for some are said.
I like what he's doing.
I think he's a good player, betrayed officer.
My sets don't don't keep him just because we get sentimental and what no, on these players, I mean Jesus people still like, but the guy's laundry feel sometimes that? Would people still like it when people talk about nothing? Second at second and rookie year.
Voter Man. Come on, bro.
You goody Douglas.
After that happened after day, don't game now.
Remember what Melo punched him in the face.
When you know what, these players get sentimental when people do good on the gym.
Because we've been losing for so long.
And that's what happens if you have a chance to get a first round draft pick.
Gotta be number 27.
Get it? If you have a challenge to Philadelphia to get to checking her own dropping conspiracy opiates for this year or anything now, 31 in the bear.
Did you get it? Okay, so let me, let me ask you, J Cash.
What is what is your cut off? Where you would say no.
I'm not going to trade him.
Like What is that? Is there a minimum? Is there a minimum? You know what the minimum is.
And I know this is not gonna happen if he goes on a tail that people go.
That man should be M v P.
If he goes on a serious tail where people go Gesso it He should be.
And maybe even though everybody bowling if he goes on the chair where the next? I like two games from the sport.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
What is here someday, but because what I'm saying is what I do.
19 getting points again.
Ready? Jump! Somebody's our Gino.
25 to 27 points again.
We actually shoes.
This is what I bring to the table.
You know what I'm asking.
So what is the What is what is the minimum where you say Okay, you're you're lowballing me? I'm not gonna You know, I'm not gonna move.
You're saying it.
Like if someone just says, Yeah, we'll give you a second round draft pick.
You're just gonna do it for a second round draft pick? No, not one.
Not a second round drop there, Philadelphia.
As before we could get from them because they actually need it.
Someone like Morris off the bench.
We could get two first round drop in.
Philadelphia has the last of ours on tank. It's a tank. A phone.
It was like 33 34 on 54.
If we could get 33 34 get it? Because these days a lot of players are one and done, and they aren't fully developed.
You could get if you could find an ex player like Mitch and tried to develop them.
I'm looking at the guy like for Reed.
Reed is slated to go like 30 something between 30 18 35 and porridge is a hell of a about forward in college.
You need to develop.
Understand the book.
I didn't two second round draft picks or first round.
Drop it with somebody.
If you could get a young player on the second round draft pick, though, I do not like time was my game because Kyle Cozma's just Kevin Knox with confidence.
Not so easy a behavior that say something, say that.
That's That's a great thing that Kevin on it gives confidence.
If you think that's a confidence that a weapon, if I don't have confidence in, you wanna go see if he had the confidence? Okay, I'm just playing a little bit better defense.
I can't do it if he has the confidence, you really develop into something.
But we can get a young player on the second round draft pick.
A first round draft pick to a second round job. Thanks.
Let's get up. Let's go.
He's gonna leave England.
Let's just get a second round draft pick.
No, that doesn't make any sense, Keeper.
Okay, so I want to move on to talk about Dennis Smith, Jr.
Dennis with Junior's Been out for, you know, the last, however many games.
34 games or whatever it is, I was elected ruin just now.
What did you think I want to talk about? With expectations.
Ah, skills, skills.
I wanna ask you Skills.
What? What? Um, what's going on with Dennis Maher Jr.
And what are we gonna do it? Dennis Smith Jr.
Man, I wish he had somebody better in his position.
But what are we going to do it? And to answer your question? Yeah, what we should do, we should plan.
We should play all our young guys honestly, like, right now, he's a young right now.
We don't even know when he's gonna be back.
He's not some something.
Well, I mean, I mean, when he is ready, player me behind the injury do because he even forgetting you've been the I know he losses his his his step Mom makes us in peace.
But the way he's well on this year versus hiring last year, he's still playing well.
I mean, some people, they handle it differently, right? But he's physically something he don't send when you see him move.
Complaints Amendment last year, right? He's not even moving with that spring.
Last year, you could just argue that he's just about decision.
Yeah, like well to me, Honestly, God and his physical prime might be done.
The best thing that a point guard could do is play with their mind.
In terms of Heidi set up players, I'd accept the offense, How they make certain moves, like how they they predict certain things so they can make the right past the right time.
Somebody, It sounds crazy.
And I know people gonna kill me.
Well, you might have to go to the D league, brah.
He might have come out in.
The chap just said something isn't right with D. S.
I think he's just not feeling the Knicks.
Like, maybe watch watching. I met you.
I bet you he went to another team.
You going ball out like that? Is there? And you're in like Miller watching ball.
You just gotta remember.
Remember what happened with the Mavericks? Because remember the Maddox once he's so Luca as the main guy.
Remember, Luca kind of shook his head when he s lost confidence, but he's really keep going from team to team to team to team.
Who's in common because he wasn't playing well with with physical here and fizzle.
Gave him a memo in all of us when we went to the opening night and we will like Yo, we this do should not be in the gate like he was messing up and then fizzle.
Put him back in the second half and he was messing up, So I don't know, it's not confidence, but I think it's not confidence in the team like, Oh, these guys are like, I think is that he just he's lost.
He doesn't. His game is not developed.
Him being out there is not helping.
He needs to go to some place where he can re develop and relearn in the league.
Who's gonna play it? Who's gonna play D is J ah, guy who basic actually off athleticism is a combo guard who can't shoot who can run an offense and was only main attributes is springing off the spring into the to the cup.
No team is gonna play him or give him minutes.
He has to go to the D League.
I'm telling you, fix his career in Julie's Trey Burke fix this career.
Now he's a least.
He's a decent better things on. The six is right.
I had that same thing with, I think was a general right? Mellowing with me, you know, Trey Burke.
I mean, speak just speaking to Trey Burke.
Real quick gaze on the six of, you know, I think a couple weeks ago he was a little beef in a little bit about his playing time on the six is, too.
But, um, he's, like, second at their string and something over there.
Yeah, yeah, but this with Dennis made Junior, I, uh I mean, I don't know.
It's hard for me to say what's going on with the guy, right.
Um, how many teams in the N.
Do you think? Well, do you think feel that they can.
It's, um, get him on the cheap, right? And then you know he can.
He can revive his career because that's that's what's been said.
Teams believe that Dennis Smith Jr is okay with reviving his career someplace cells.
That's what I meant earlier.
And I would like to get something good in return.
Like, hopefully they see enough good in him to give us something good back.
What? You're not gonna give us nothing? But I think given that I feel you, I I just I'm trying to be.
I'm hopeful, too.
I'm because I'm I sort of.
The temples are rumors like Mexico, like teams like that cat.
I mean, the moment I'm not saying he's a bad guy, but when you look at him, what intangibles does he bring like and I'm not in a bad way, But it's like, you know, I just wanted to have a Cherry Valley if he has to go.
If not, just get it together and play well, like I don't know, You know, maybe we can.
He has to go to G League when you look at his game.
Even when you look at certain things right when he could slip a certain past.
A certain guys I've seen paying, though I haven't seen Frank do certain things where they could slip the past.
So Guide to the Big Man kind of coming around.
The J hesitates on that, and that's an MBA level play where you got to be able to make that quick.
Pass it quickly.
He doesn't do that.
He is literally out on the perimeter waiting to Mitch comes and sets the pick and roll and gets into the paint.
Even he's gonna paint it Looks like he's going in slow motion.
Now he's had games or you scored points in the paint like he did against the Mavericks.
Uh, when you claim in the play, man MSG.
But he mentally it don't matter what team you go to.
If he goes another team.
Is this him? Is it him just absolving himself of the responsibility like he has to fix himself? So no team every other teams in to see if they can get him on chief, thereby just waits.
He gets cut and pick him up and seeing.
But no team is gonna trade assets him way in the back.
Just wait for him to come into a warrior.
So you heard the popular consensus seems to be sending him to jail. Egan.
Yeah, you have to, bro.
His best is, but he has to be humble with himself.
Everything that he thought he achieved from college and see staying again, Jack, that he has a home himself and fixed his game before. It's too late.
And no teams won him.
Because at least in a g l e v o ge Li and you change your game and people see a different you.
You already been in the league, right? So people Yohe, he's actually he actually worked his game. He's a different player.
They'll take a chance.
You versus Ah Gein aji Li who came from Europe and you wanna fight way.
But he really has no what is going on here? What's his highest scoring game? This is this year.
Wasn't 13 points against was 13 16 points against the Mavericks.
Um, was it that game? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I think it was about 13 points against the Mavericks, man.
And you know, obviously you know you're motivated to play against your old team, but this is a guy that was averaging 13 points a game last year.
What, 13 and four? 13 5 All of a sudden I was averaging five points a game.
Um, this shot is broken.
And I don't know what they're gonna do with a man.
I don't know what they're gonna do with Emmett's.
He looks out of shape to. Doesn't look little flab.
You, I'm I'm not trying to decide.
I'm not trying to snow in my looks flabby, not weight wise, but just like he's not bouncy, that's what I feel like.
This is not bad that around.
I'll be like something about it.
Just looks like like I I'm saying it because I think that back issue cause we have certain things like a back issue.
You really can't do certain things that you can't.
You can't, um, can't do too many strenuous things is going to just flare up again.
So maybe he's trying to nurse it.
Maybe this new shut him.
If he If he is honest with himself, maybe he should show himself down and just and get help because he just doesn't work.
I don't know. Some looks out, man.
I know, man, but And you know, if if he is out of shape, we don't know if he is obvious.
But if it is out of shape now, he's out, you know, for who knows how long, and he's got to come back and try to get in shape again. I don't know, man.
This season comes up and I feel like this season is done for him.
Really? I hate to say that I hate to say it that way, but I feel like maybe this season is done for him.
That's the cat we traded for praising.
Ah! Good morning, skills.
Mark is not Marcus. I hear.
Oh, well, I don't know.
Mark is not here.
Oh, please, God, don't start no trouble, man.
But hey, Porzingis is is unhealthy.
Nowt to his history is a plane, and he's there.
I'm gonna stand No, no, I'm not feeling.
But, you know, there's a lot to say about forcing its way.
I know you gotta goto things, but let me say this May.
There's a really good, um video by be basketball, some basketball channel. And it broke down.
How they basically marginalized prisoners into a three point shooter.
Just be I'm not saying that poison is the whole thing should went down the way it did, but I did.
That poor thing is gonna be this ultra superstar Mega saw whatever.
It ain't happening.
And poor Zynga's might grow a lot more unhappy with the Mavericks with the way to China, because they don't even want to post up anymore.
The basin Just want to shoot the three and poor sings this game was that you had this unicorn 73 dude was able to post up there was a little shimmy and kiss off the backboard, and they don't want to do any more.
That map is a good video.
I think it's basketball be basketball.
So I can't remember that in some mine A chap I know, but do these breakdowns on basketball But the mm forcing its Let that let that go home.
As much as you know, Mills would have a Bob LA but Mark let that gold, man.
Hey, ain't gonna be a means our bro.
Like clockwork Like clockwork.
The New Year hits Hey, peace on the sideline in suit I don't know how long he's out for, but like, clockwork man.
And he gets tired to her number is anemic.
He had the jersey on the New York jersey, Man.
Hey, was always was always talking about him being frail member LeBron James.
And was it not? Tony Allen whose other Marcus smart, posing that look Poor thing is to me, I just again and TJ um, my Barbara to J caches point the next fall in love with I'll say lovable losers.
Almost anybody that produces for us while we're losing way Love him like, Oh, my gosh.
Like broke KP Do not get me wrong.
KP was a good player.
Don't get me wrong But we never went to the playoffs with him.
Yeah, you know what? I had a winning season with them.
Like you're going to go.
He's only gonna become that star on the next.
Like we gave him that number four spot on the draft.
Nobody else is gonna give him that number four spot.
Nobody would have drafted him that high.
We took a chance on him and he played good that first couple years.
But you know, you got unhappy or whatever happened.
He's a good He's a good second fiddle guy, but he's proven he can do that with Luca.
Like I heard segments where, like, needs help.
They said Luca needs help and I'm looking like Wait, wasn't KP supposed to be? I think the way you can't even Ash offseason picture like I like Mom, Bro, I just Knick fans, man like it hurts because And you told me to.
Like I said, You're talking to a fan.
I'm the fin Off the worst teams in the Knicks Nets of a boat start.
Nick's Mets Jets, Manchester United fan.
All my owners are Arab now.
I wear about Yankees.
Yeah, you, you Yankees.
I grew up a Mets fan. Don't ask me why.
I know it hurts me, bro.
I cried when Carlos Beltran struck out in 2006.
I know what pain feels like.
Uh, we have tohave perspective.
I know it hurts.
I want do Marcus Morris.
I wish Marcus Morris is averaging 27 he was 23 he's some reason would stay with the Knicks.
But we gotta be careful about giving these condoms.
I've seen it, Sim, You seen it? Early? Two thousands of book.
The mixers have a squad full of veterans, high priced veterans or hurt.
We got Glen Rice, and I thought he was good.
I was like, Man, that network the Knicks Ross up means if you just look at the names without the age of production, you think the Knicks had some of the best players the whole time? Come on, bro.
Yo, as dies, don't make legalese the hawks, man.
No, please don't ever mention Glen Rice again.
That is a sore spot in my life.
Okay, that is a sore spot in my life.
Patrick Ewing for Glen Rice.
Ah, Glenn freakin rice.
Iceman. Oh, man, Right.
Held a door. Oh, yeah.
Big the big shot if you're so l j when he's at UNLV and Grandma Ma with the Hornets.
And you compare that to what was with the Knicks.
Anderson. He got hurt because of back issues.
But you're just like, why is it why does this happen to the next? Why couldn't we get an L J when he was l j like L J was Blake Griffin without a shot encourages.
So So over the last week, right over the last week, um, the Knicks have gone wanted to, right? They lost to beat the Portland Trail Blazers.
They lost to the sons, and they lost to the Clippers.
The most disappointing thing to me.
And, you know, the most disappointing loss to me out of those three is to the Phoenix Suns.
I Although I wasn't terribly upset, you know, that was the most disappointing, because I, you know, I didn't expect them to beat the Clippers last night, and I didn't really expect them to, um Well, with the Portland Trailblazers, I wasn't sure I I wasn't sure what to expect with the Trailblazers, but they beat the Trailblazers.
You know, er which was probably probably I don't.
Well, I guess you could say that Mavericks wins with the best wins.
But besides, that was the best win of the season.
Maybe you think the Portland Trailblazers went yeah, against a legitimate team.
Why? I mean, you just me.
I'm just anybody.
Anybody that was at our best when on domination, you did very drab.
I mean, besides, the Dallas Mavericks winds? Yeah, it gets a legitimate team.
I'm saying, you know, gets a legit team.
I know what teams that we replace.
What are they going? No, I'm just saying it was the most complete win.
I mean, we pretty much, you know, dominated from the beginning to the end.
So, you know, when our players really played out.
I mean, I know the Dallas game probably was our most impressive win.
But any time you have what, three or four players score double figures or whatever it is and you hold the team under 100 points, you know, and pretty much dominate them in the fourth quarter.
I mean, that's better.
You get on that.
I thought the Nets game was our best win because yeah, way we shut down like that and not say got on this thing. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
We all watched the way that Nets came in with their game plan and it killed us actually before because remember, they didn't that the second game didn't have Kyrie.
They killed us by spreading the floor using the dribble drive penetration of didn't Woody the way that Mike Miller And that's why I like Mike Miller, because he's a smart coach.
Um, once he saw again, Maybe he's here, actually starts getting better play especially better.
More athletic guards and those like tweeners Small four power for type of athletic guys to kind of run the floor and defend I'm.
But the way we shut down their offense, brought like they were relegated to, literally just trying to hoist up three pointers that weren't good shot like date brought the way he struck that team down.
I was like, **** that.
That wasn't like a footman. Now you could say that. Marry.
See, maybe all riled up.
I'm gonna We're gonna beat this team.
The Chicago Bulls win.
You know? What's this guy's name? An idiot.
I'm just joking.
Portis on round up. He had a really good game.
I don't say they just emotional games of those games.
We kind of got up for right. The KP game at home.
We really got up for right.
But that game against the Nets, bro, Like, I know you don't really feel the rivalry of this Nets Knicks because no one cares about the Nets, but to me, that way be playing defensively.
And historically, I think they put a ah historical stat where, like, they always shot, like, the lowest amount of two points or whatever.
Whether maybe they'll close soda, whatever, cause it can't mention during the game I salute Mike Miller because the only way to Nick is gonna win games.
All these games is gonna be off defense.
We got to get defensive stops and for him to shut down the team's plan A a B C D e f g What e f g whatever that was that was most impressive. Win to me.
Okay, You know, you might be right.
That might be the most impressive.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
But, Nate, the thing about the funny thing is that that offense moves.
Ah, lot better without Kyrie Kyrie that first game Be ****! We could have beaten them! Remember, this is a Kyrie that score 54 points again.
Yeah, because Kyrie is an ice so player He's not dead, Woody.
When you watch them, Woody, then what? He's so dangerous because as much as he can score off the cuff if it facilitates as well, Kyra is a guy who gets enamored with his own skill.
You can see him on a court wailing, and this is what Jared Allen said.
Giles himself said it.
Kyrie Irving could do amazing things on a boat off on the ball.
De Lo gets everybody involved, and that's not my thing.
He's trying to slight Carrie, but when you see them play, the Nets play a lot better guys again, the ball, guys against shots and it's a lot more fluid is a lot more healthy oven offense because guys again looks when dimwit is in there versus Tyree.
Now you could say R J that stop whatever.
Maybe you put in Frank, Remember, I don't Frank, don't even play that game.
Uh, thank you for.
But Kyrie, when you ever the balls concentrated with one player, and he's supposed to be a guy to get the ball around, he's not catching a ball off the wing like a two guard or a small forward.
When he's a point guard.
Shows were Gettinto, other people. He's huggable.
It's easier to spring her.
Why easier? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I mean, I think I do agree with you now you know, looking back at it.
Probably that Brooklyn Nets game is is probably the best win of the season.
But over the last week, the next week wanted to, um, they went one into.
Now we play the Los Angeles Lakers.
Are you satisfied? We're going one into, you know, department Trailblazer, the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers.
You satisfied line wanted to Ah, nah, because this is where I thought we should have beat the Suns.
I didn't expect this to be the Clippers, so I guess it's kind of flipped where we were getting killed.
Well, grew up against the sons and then just got killed the fourth quarter and the Clippers, That game was close.
Um, I really want to be the Lakers man.
Like I just I don't I don't like cause I've seen it like LeBron James and Colby.
All these guys, they've been They've embarrassed the Knicks before, and I don't want to be a stepping stone stone for anything, Especially LeBron James.
I just you know, it was Coby and Kobe is a mama mentality.
This guy's a street assassin.
But LeBron James to me, you know this is the guy runs on the court and start celebrating, and so is like I don't want to see none of that.
I don't want to see.
I went to a Knick game and we had Hughes.
Clary Hughes names have, like 35 in the third quarter.
Okay, Keep bringing.
You keep bringing its obscure players out the woodwork, man, because it was personal.
I don't know why I paid for tickets for that game soon.
Like Sim, he didn't play in the whole fourth quarter and and they were up against the Knicks by like, 30 something.
It was one of the worst games.
I I was just like, Why am I? It was like one of the pressing migraine inducing.
I was like, Why my air? Like why my one might do in my life.
I don't want to see that against the Knicks, especially in the Staples Center.
Like I don't I don't like what 80 did to us before he's killed us before.
We don't want people.
I I don't want it.
I don't want the next the embarrassment I want to repeat.
This guy's like last year we being with Sonia having that final block.
I was happy, man.
As much as theirs only is just not good.
It got him a contract.
I'm just saying, I just want I want to be the Lakers man.
But this is where my wallpaper role.
You look like I said, LeBron love.
LeBron James is a guy who can get rattled.
I want to see the Knicks rattle.
There's do where he just doesn't know what to do.
He's trying to take shots.
You can't take the little three point shot, offers his left hand job to the basket, make a big jump ship.
I want to see the Knicks frustrate this guy, man, and I think Mike Millikan do it.
You know, we've seen them adapt defensively, man.
He's not a dumb coach.
He's a capable coachman.
I just want to see these guys play up to I just don't want Randall to think he's God Shammgod and tried to put forward, he points out in force guys over, passable around move.
And the funny thing is that when Renda moves the ball around the Bulls flowing, he actually gets the ball back because he's one of the primary scores on this team or one of primary go to guys.
I just Let's stay focused.
We gotta stay focused. Concentrate.
Don't let the easy shots happens.
The alleys behind your back like I don't want.
We'll need the embarrassment.
So so So in the last week.
Like I said, the Knicks went one into the last week.
When you look at the numbers over that week, um, wanted to.
They actually averaged 120 points per game.
Obviously, 132 of those points came against the Clippers.
6% from the field.
Ah, they grabbed what? 48 rebounds per game.
They actually average seven steals and 5.
7 blocks over the last three games.
This is over the last week, right? Don't.
Those are good numbers.
And those numbers should lead you to being at least two in one over that time period, right? I mean, come on.
20 points a game.
40% from the field, 37% from three.
Obviously a lot of it is due to the game and, you know, the, uh, the Clippers game.
But importantly, we shot really well too.
So you really think once that got, ah, skills just mentioned free throws? Man, I'm free throws.
Yeah, we shot 65% from the free throw line over these three games as well.
And that is exactly yesterday or Sunday.
Or will you? Yes, it was something here.
Yes, we should be winning soon.
But again, Defense, Defense.
That sons game. We couldn't stop the pick and roll.
With Booker broke, this guy was carving us with the pickle roll into the mid range man, and you could turn it scared them.
What book is that? Broken from last year would have settled for the threes he would have chucked.
But this year, you know that he's not.
Don't be the primary ball handler and they get him to execute 1/4 quarter lead the game.
But he could be the primary primary ball handler late.
Killed us with that pin. A rose.
I was defense, man.
It wasn't in the game either.
Yeah, but he was cooking.
Frank, too, at times to like Frank was in there. Have him out there.
You say you said who wasn't in the game? You're kind of low more.
I mean Ah, Mark.
I mean, uh, meet you kind of low, man.
You kind of located everybody.
Um, Latina wasn't in the game.
And I'd rather have Booker because he's a bigger guy.
But But the thing that and it's so frustrating it, Frank, What pain does so well is that it penetrates a defence and and Frank can do it, but he just doesn't know he's starting to go way.
I would be out of this one.
Be Don't even be is no reason to even be embarrassed about that.
Be careful here, man.
Who else is defending like that? Boy? I'm not going to keep being or dead horse defense, this defense that but yeah, Frank is he's never doing better on the offensive end of the ball these days.
Here is Is this, like you is so high in the defense of side.
That's why I need to be out there.
But the thing about the reason why paying this special? Because what? The thing that hurts the Knicks sometimes that often get stagnant.
Right? We don't have a lot of movement off the ball.
So when paying is India, he could run that pick and roll.
That's literally outside of these guys like Morrison.
Randall trying, opposed to trying to go, I So it keeps the offense a little fresh air keeps the percentage of easier passes at a so called steady state.
Right, Because again, how many games have you been in it? And then you see, guys just chucking up shots of late and we lose it, Lee, because our offense has no movement.
Offense really has nothing going for so paying.
He offers that I wished.
Frank, that Lucchino last night.
Yesterday? No, no.
For good thing, for a good thing.
That God bless him.
I don't think that Frank had that lay up in the fourth quarter.
His lies last time.
I was like, Why the hell can he do this? Wow.
I mean, that man earlier and he had someone said he had a mismatch that John Michael Green was Oh, my God.
But how many times have you seen? Frankly, Lucchino have a mismatch of top, and he just literally doesn't dribble.
Handoff. And I might go for us.
Drive to the freaking even if you don't let a ball up.
When you're in that area, you attract players to you.
He's just wrong time.
You write you a lifetime, you're Frank.
Frank Man's can argue back intimate.
He will be Aiken timid, like Come on, grow up there.
If you want to see Frank at his best pennant training without even scoring, go look at the Blazers game.
How many albums did you have to listen because this idiot knows his idiot? But this guy, Hassan Whiteside, is not a smart depend.
He's a be a really good defender.
He's not smart defender.
How many times he catch him and throw it up.
And Mitchell Robinson had that had the dunk because this guy's sack, the guy moved away from from him at the wrong time.
Let's see what Frank is like.
Like really, I realize how good he Actually I think he I think you low balls himself because there's the games where he looks like he is getting it the libel is going off and there's games or you just look at him like, What are you doing? You know, discussions, man, because this is not coming together, though, you know, you know, it's crazy.
Nate started cultural skills.
You know, it's crazy.
Nate, when Frank came into the league, right, remember those games he had? Well, horn a second KP when porno sect was in there when Horse**** wasn't changing fromthe one into two Frank in terms of penetrating and passing, he was actually very confident that so.
It's like he's losing confidence in what actually got him to the show.
Now get three point shooting.
You got improve that we understand.
But you're Brennan.
You get into the paint and you pass out.
You go in the pick and roll me KP pick and pop and facilitating from there.
Some even had a video where he was doing this.
I think last year with has only a whatever it is like Frank.
You can't let your bad shooting get to you your defense, but also as a point guard.
Stop handing off when Jews Randall's Billy the ball down like Flip Fred Flintstone get the ball from like, pain does facilitate the offense.
That's too many times.
It's like I see paying pain.
Does he bought you That screams me? Kind of yell.
So Frank has to take it. You see, I saw it.
Uh, was it this game on a Sunday? I can remember Ah, Clippers or something where he was kind of direct, I think made it in the sun game, and I finally see.
But Frank also acid be aggressive was a point guard.
One thing else has to learn how to do that.
Top point guards doing Chris Paul does is ti umm suffering suffering curry does it get your get your guy? If you're not quicker than your guy, you're not fastened.
Trapped him on your hip.
Once you're trapping, you hit.
You could drag him.
You get, you know, basically taking up till you catch him on the hip.
Now you have the defender was to come in, Chief, pass up to Mitch if he wants to stay back.
You don't for a little floater is good.
Mitch has to learn these little nuances.
And also dear Jake, a learner too.
But I would say Watch Chris Paul, who D j.
Said he worked with in the summer.
Watch the best point guards.
They all do that man and that skills going away because I don't want to be a scoring point guard.
But again, if Frank wants to make in this league, he may never be a 40% shoot three point shooter.
He guys to learn little nuances.
Trap the guy on the hippo game faster than him.
Learn how to get into the paint and then facilitate from them.
And you make that run this team, this offense, it looks dangerous when Frank is doing it when pain is doing that.
So make it open shot.
Yeah, that's what happens in there.
Uh, he asked you.
But put like this if you're not making your shots, at least be a threat in terms of facilitating right.
Make everybody else dangerous if you can't make yourself dangerous, but you won't score and make everybody else dangerous, that's how.
That's how Sorry about that.
Um I mean, you know, uh, that was something else.
That was almost I mean, my bag, Frank, I don't know.
You know you let me see.
He's gonna figure out this. He's played.
He played well against Portland, you know, just think of this week. Play well against Portland.
He did okay last night at his times.
Like GMO pointed out he had his He had his moments last night.
Um, and then against being eggs now, he only played 16 minutes against Phoenix.
Right? So things are always gonna be kind of opened down for Frank, you know? But, um huh.
104 to 1 of three.
That was so heartbreaking.
Patrols the pacers.
Sorry about that.
Uh, I had cut off the sound for a second.
I don't know what happened.
It's always that close by one point way.
Let's not one point.
There's so many games.
We just lost by one or two points.
Like if defense would would help this so much like six years game.
We lost, even though it wasn't one point.
But we had that game and I mean, I think he's doing a fizzle, ever.
But still would have is a lore.
The last one was fizzle, too.
Is this not? You're not with them games, bro said Yes.
Let's look at this a week.
Let's take a look at the upcoming week and what? We got a story.
You know that? Yeah, Way back.
We're gonna wait back.
We trying to stick it to, like, last Monday.
It's good, But looking at this week coming up right this week, coming up.
Let me see this.
Let's get it to this week way.
Obviously, we got to clip the Lakers tomorrow, right? And then we got the Utah Jazz.
Oh, which that's going to be a tough game with the Utah Jazz.
Then we come home first in New Orleans. Pelicans.
That gun has been changed, I mean, and that the game time's been changed is now 7 15 Right then we played the Miami Heat.
We play the Milwaukee books, we play the sun's again that we played a 76 or so, you know, looking at the next the next week, week, week and 1/2.
Um, you know, we got some tough.
We got some tough games there, which, which makes it a little bit more.
It makes its sting a little bit more that we could have beaten the sons.
And we lost to the sons should, you know, should have beat the sun that we lost to the sons.
And then we could have beat the Clippers when we lost to the Clippers.
Right there, right there.
And because you look at obviously the Lakers and the Jazz has to some games.
Hopefully, we could beat the pelicans at home.
We got blown out by Miami Heat earlier.
I e I don't know if he's gonna be back, Is he needs just not even walking yet.
I mean, what, you're not even running yet? I mean, that's what I make.
You've got great basketball.
I don't think he's gonna be back.
Thanks for walking.
They're gonna red flag.
That board is now.
We owe some talk about the standings, man.
If we could string together some wins, my brothers, we could end up like Wayne Cashman.
Help you help your people, men.
But was saying you think it's skills, you know, we this This is us, man.
We ain't going to the playoffs, man.
We're still praying to the Lord.
Let me put my hands together.
Way understands what we are going to the playoffs.
It's not happening, man.
You mentioned there were only five games.
Look, the Bulls were in 10 place that we put some wins together.
We could be intended no night place way out on a binge.
But Bogdan Bogdanovich on shooting God then.
J didn't because time market Martian be gone.
Then he's in dark brown.
So we open the chute on the thing will be, actually shoot consistently.
More guys out there that wanted, like, Bogdan, uh, Ogden bod running on the Kings.
He was complaining like him and dead amenable complained.
But do you think like Sim? Can you decide? I know we keep coming forward because you think there's anybody out there that we should get that Maybe is this grown too? But they're young and I could fitness team cause a guy like Bogdan, he could come in.
You might be a way to give us some really good minutes.
As it turned out, I don't know.
I don't know who's disgruntled out there.
The only person that I could think that is may be teetering of being disgruntled.
It's Karl Anthony Towns.
Ah, Lord I thank God Mark is not a car in the sea.
I don't want the same cover. Something weird.
Look, the guy's putting up monster numbers.
I'm not taking that away from him whatsoever.
But it's the Loveday.
How many games are they? Well, I know they went to the playoffs of the last year two years ago and he got killed in the first round or whatever, but that's it.
He is like, I does he inspire that you like this? He I don't know, man.
It's tough because I just I wish that team was winning and he's He's a hot young shot.
He want to come to the next and his II.
You pick him up in terms of like here he's he's a leader that meaning like Isaac and 50 60 wins every year but large because of him.
The place, I think, was last year two years ago, but am I don't know, man, it's tough because you would have to train the farm for him.
You got a woman just minutes, man.
Veterans behind Mitch.
That's about it.
I don't want to give You got to trade Mr the reason why I, like Charley, is a very good blue.
But then I think it's very touching on him.
When he credited Jimmy Butler on him, you couldn't take them to want it.
That's too much to me.
Consensually gun's been creative off one by you people.
It was they would destroy him, just like with the S J D S J C pointing.
Give me Frank to be frank, to be frank, it cost centers on or low.
Some players need to be pleased with everybody.
It's getting behind all the time.
Yes, J need that.
If they could trade.
In North Carolina, you haven't been corrected its family.
So you love you could run back now and cry.
More captain days.
Certain people cannot make each other some use, and I do not know Jack and take this.
Jimmy Butler destroyed Carla to count their instrument in the world.
Know it? I don't think that coming crazy was saying Mitchell a cat, but I don't think it's a better plan.
Admit I know that the US Jalen, you won't estimate the men to the mental toughness it takes to go to New York one, and then I'm gonna have what you need mentally to actually play on a team where there's a lot of dysfunction and the team is losing.
I mean Mitchell Robinson, say what you want.
The kid is improved a lot since last year.
We see in regret.
Yeah, and his kid was when he's 19 without any college experience.
Bodies, guys, when they come to the Knicks, man or they come to these big teams and they fade away.
Man, Cat, he's been He's been lucky that the Temple they probably have one beat writer on one like a publication and tape I just write about Like beers and Forced hasn't decorated college career.
He has had a greater cause career.
You come to the Knicks, you got Look, you got not to die, Grace.
But you got one.
You gotta beat writer who's being accused of Crane, a Twitter account that basically act as if he was a coach to talk trash about the coach.
That's that's how crazy the New York media is, Man, I'm not sure that guy like if Cat goes out and he has fun at the club by the Knicks are losing.
You know they might write about him and this type of guy he might break down.
If you If you're breaking out from Jimmy Bullard, what Jimmy Bullets do with the Heat now, those kids on the heat if you gave me those guys mentality playing with Jimmy Butler and Pat Riley and all that pressure, not that intelligent and nineties Nixon telling because it was doing bullet, probably want to do the same thing with Wolves.
Hey, I got a bunch of young, talented players, but I just want to be mentally tough and cat and Andrew Wiggins, the guy that everybody he's a perpetual, the quietest 20 points you ever see in a game is from, and is Andrew Wiggins that that group, if they couldn't withstand Butler and work up to that guy's, you know, toughness in, um, not to mention the guy Don't play defense, so I mean, our defense is already bad enough as it is.
Why do we need another bad rage? My brother, Mr Robinson, is this that he just doesn't put up a bunch of points by himself.
But Mr Robinson, you get the right point garment, which probably is gonna look like a star man.
I'm thinking about Mitchell Rubble.
Press came in the league.
He couldn't look at the camera given interview and everybody thought Is not.
He does not have everybody thought he was.
Can't get right from the movie life.
That's what people give an interview.
I e people thought Well, you know, when he couldn't speak of the camera and all that stuff people thought he was Can't get right from the movie life, doesn't it? But it wasn't.
It wasn't that he couldn't speaking the camera.
The guy with the shy, shy he was starting.
Now that they have, like, a segment with him and docks in real life, he's talking and, like usually Oh, yeah, I just see Kat.
A cat man like I want to like you.
Just God, I'm 11 for 11 and they act.
Why did you dominate? He said, Well, the starters beat us and they teased us, so I had to move on. Dominy.
That's what you said.
Yeah, the number of people telling you Oh, eh? Oh, ***** said okay.
No Maid said so.
That started in practice.
The starters be the reserves right, right for being too, too.
And he said, I think Marcus Mars was teasing him, so I had to come out and dominate.
I I want to see for Mitchell be at 25 years old.
I want to see how good crazy he's 1925 is like a whole hour night.
Mitch is 21 years old.
What? Miss Robinson is 21.
He's older than I thought he was, too.
I thought he was younger.
I thought he was 20.
I mean, out of here right now, he said, Out of here.
Okay, well, I mean, you sit out a year.
He sent out his freshman year's college his freshman year in college.
He said that out.
Oh, yeah, he's probably Yeah, he's probably only usually probably 20 in physical because he didn't play a whole year, Essentially, just All right, So that's what I want to get to, uh, real quick.
We talked, you know, the game's next week.
Now, you know, again, you know, coming up, we got the Lakers, the Jazz, the pelicans this week.
Sunday we got Miami.
Um, you know, that rounds out the rest of this week a SZ faras games, and, you know, they're all gonna be tough.
Hopefully, we can get a win against New Orleans.
Then you got the bucks.
The sun's again, who just lost to the 76 years, You know, you're talking about playoff e mean, that's yo, I mean, I'm just being real with you, man.
It's gonna be tough.
Like, I feel like an order for us to make the playoffs.
We've got a really string, some wins together way gotta go on a 78 gay win streak.
If we don't make it to the playoffs, man, we gotta win games and nobody specs.
Yeah, Yeah, we gotta pull off some of those.
Now, I I think that the waiter, you probably feel like they could do that.
That's what I think.
I think that players probably feel like they could do it if they make those.
I mean, yeah, they make their fleet those, you know, saying, but I mean, making the playoffs is I'm not up.
Listen, I'm just trying to go game by.
Eastern Conference anything's possible.
Simple. Next. Make the playoffs.
But we started closing that way.
500 we we lost sight of Nets and four games like, would you think that's development? We do Just think that's the cir***stance, because I say so, you know? I mean, what do you make the playoffs with our squad? That's that's that's always say that. Say that again.
I was saying that if we made the playoffs, wasn't like you guys are for when the Knicks made the playoffs with that team where we were like eight games or five games on the 500 we played the Nets in the first round, we got swept.
We got Molly Whopped like, Would you think that's development to say, Hey, let's resign, Morris And let's just re up for next year.
Would you say there was a leak? Yeah.
Would you give Mila contract? Or was that like a fluke if we made the playoffs this year? When I give Miller contract, if we make the place is here.
But we're under 500 like the East is that bad? Oh, that's what I mean.
It would depend on well Well, here we go.
OK, I'll say this.
If we make the playoffs, you're thinking even if we're five under 500 say we had 35 wins.
I'm gonna be honest with 500.
I'm gonna be honest with you.
If we 1 35 games this season under Coach Mike Miller after the start that we had.
Yes, I would hire coach Mike Miller after the start that we had to the season.
You really have four games right after the start that we had to the season and then we go on to win 35 games.
That means we'll have 1 31 games like way.
I mean, yeah, that's that's Yeah, I would I would definitely hire room, you say.
And then I would you know, I would look at obviously tweaking the roster and and still trying to keep the, you know, still trying to keep the without huge for the handicapped.
Because if we make the playoffs with the roster, we have for the young players we have and then, you know, a coach that came in, you know, even though it was, um, in this season comes in and takes the blouse.
That's a huge momentum boost going forward.
I'll say this if we want everyone 35 games we traded, Marcus Moore is about a deadline and we still want 35 games.
I would say you keep Mike Miller because he knows how to do something, even with less talent, maybe, and sometimes it takes.
It takes for you to move certain guys out and then bring me.
You'll bring Marcus Moore is back in or whatever to.
If you could do that, I'll be I'll be more than impressed because this visit is just so frustrating because there's so many things he might know is doing now.
Physics should have done before, but I like what I like.
I like what Miller's doing.
I just physical, maybe just okay.
C said in the chat, If we win 35 games, I went higher Fizdale as a consultant just to fire him again.
Eyes is cool as you say that.
All right, look, as much as physical was terrible.
This guy still a man, you know, like couple of dry, like so he's in a coma.
He's gonna go home to his wife.
He's gonna like Bradley.
Hey, man, come back to the next day.
I got a job again, and then to Reese is gonna get fighting like a man is on ESPN.
He ain't going, You guys, you guys, a grimy man.
And by the way, I love the fact that ESPN, all these people, they don't want to give the Knicks their credit.
So much from saying, Mike Miller is doing a way better job fizzled, man.
But you know, it is what it is, but yeah, I know that always looks at the other day.
Chauncey Billups said that Mike Miller is doing a much better job and is dead.
I think he's on NDTV.
Can't you can be sure.
Yeah, I said on tansy to cause shacking these idiots.
Barkley, I don't know why Barkley kids by the Knicks so much because you started making fun of him.
Hey, was old Mike Miller came in and Mike Miller was three season time.
Now Mike Miller is like, five and seven or whatever.
He is five and eat whatever, but he was like, Oh, yeah, only 36 I forgot it was me.
I was like, Whoa, that's actually an improvement Is better than what? Yeah, but it's the Knicks.
I just want What is Markley? Barkley, who is everybody? Hardly worked out, never won a ring was called Fat by Michael Jordan by his own friend, Michael Jordan.
Why does he come out? The Knicks like shot shack makes fun of him for all the time for never winning a ring and acting as if he won a ring like I know I'm gonna die aggressive.
I just want to just issue on Charles Barkley because you will talk about the next is one thing.
But at least the Knicks have something you'd never have.
And that's a championship like Walk I phrase has two championships.
Charles Barkley has zero.
It also has zero.
But Patrick doesn't get on TV talking trash about another team.
I just I don't know what we have here.
He didn't have really anybody around him when he was playing Clinton **** under Dan Fool who Mark Lee? Are you Marlene Johnson? Don Mali, Bro? Bro, 1993.
Barkley should've won.
Barclay just kept trying to drum from team to team the team a team because he can't remember what he said when Jordan he came when he told his daughter, He say, Yo i'ma beat Jordan.
I'm the best player in the league When he lost was a game one or whatever, and Jordan put a having 40 some points.
Your daughter asks him again, Who is the best player in the league? He said. Jordan.
He told his daughter that Jordan is the best place.
So Barkley, I don't want a hand talk tracked by no Nicks, man.
Just keep acting like a full on TV and just keep your mouth shut about the next minute.
Like the most embarrassing thing I ever saw.
They didn't interview with Scottie Pippen.
When Scottie Pippen you into the Houston Rockets with Barker, I'm scoring seven dead.
Michael Jordan told me not to play with him because he's lazy.
That's what happened, said down the boat charge.
But we think that's what Jordan said.
I could join you, say not to play with Charles Barkley because he's leaving and what they are doing with those things on Williams is supposed to be right now, except isn't breaking down what you could have been was amazing, but he is crazy.
One thing I respect about Shack is that when they mentioned after you're not winning one, he was like, no problem.
Jax had put respect on Ewing's name.
And I love that about Chakma.
Hey, Whoa! But Bella switching my lucky I'm not a thing when you want to bring up is earlier in the year when you were losing under Fizdale.
Uh, I used to get angry because it was modeling.
I never It was so because the gym kind off.
Yes, look, just showing it involved.
But now, even if they lose under Miller, you can see.
I guess it's progress you could.
It's not asthma.
You're angry because they lost.
But it's not until you tell you don't go.
I think Miller's doing an action and job.
What? Yet Ross create More than that, he doesn't have, uh, people talk about you, Albert.
Alfred baiting and Frank doesn't fine God, if you have a point, Okay, points, I'm good hold of me.
And that's how you say I see the progress and I see exactly what he's trying to do.
But I think they need a real actual point guard.
They don't have that.
Frank is a good backup.
Frankel back up to 1 203 Fine.
Fate has a backup point guard using their own string playing. Good.
So, fellas, I'm about to head off, uh, for the night.
I got just, like, a couple minutes left and we'll be on.
But I do want to ask you before we end this show.
What was your played a week for last week? And I promise you guys, you know, we're gonna add a little bit more structure to the show as we go on, and I want to get some ideas from you guys about some things you'd like to see, you know? Well, you know, we'll be doing some place in a week and some things like that, some other things that you like to see that kind of wrap up the week.
You know, this is just this is just the beginning.
You know, the show is gonna is gonna grow in, is going to evolve, and there'll be some more things.
Add it to the show and hopefully, some games and stuff like that.
You know that we can think of that, You know, maybe quiz you about some stuff that happened throughout the week with the Knicks, but anyway, yeah, well, what would you play a week? That one alley you toe Mitchell Robinson during a Blazers game? I don't think it was Frank.
I can't remember what it was, but do that one.
We grabbed it in the actual, not pinpoint where the hell the ball was.
I literally thought Mitch lost the ball and he came down with Mitch.
Is he's an alien.
That was the best player I've seen.
That has to be unless of some Created as being the top 10 dunks of the season to me for the fool, all of them be a man that ish, uh, that that Yeah.
I mean that that that Definitely.
Yeah, that was a mean.
Don't you know what? I was watching? Because, you know, I watch I get the game zone.
Um, you know, I pay for his subscription to the N B A.
And like, during timeouts, commercials or whatever, you know, they have to do the corny dude that comes on and says, Although you know somebody with the slam and goes, Blame him.
He's mad, corny, but doing top 10 plays of the week in the N B A.
And Mitch is dunk wasn't in there. I was kind of hot.
I was like, Oh, that was one of the Ellis dunks.
Wow, it wasn't in.
There was corny, you know, saying it had to be in there.
I wanna, uh, let me see Skills.
What was your what was your plate a week? Um, I like Frank's don't like Mitch is done embalm, but the woman were midst light is al you.
He changed it in the air he laid, but you sliced it in the air.
Then it hit me What I laid up into the real off the backboard.
Er, yeah, backboard into the room you like? It is about to, like, dunk it in.
But he kind of liked was to hire, so he just like I'm not chopped it into something No mix has, like, he has the dexterity and the athletic ability to do all that stuff.
Man, you change it? Yeah, Nothing.
Frank Frank's dunk.
That's what at Simin in the chat said Frank's dunk number two hour.
I would agree here, Frank.
Don't you know that had me height mining a lot.
And, you know, we owe this is Frank cracks me up sometimes, man.
He'd do a play or somebody hit his shot.
And you see him flex little bird chest.
You know, like a killer.
Yeah, like, But that's what makes people like him, though.
He's a kid, he's like, he's like the baby, it t East. Not the baby anymore.
But, you know, he's like, the ease that that kid, little brother, everybody likes him. Yeah.
You know, Nate, what about June 8th? Oh, man, you're gonna laugh whom I play my plaything.
When Randall said he won't take that technical free throw, then missed it.
That's not the play. That's the goofball.
Played a weak man.
I thought that was hilarious.
That goofball played a week, I guess.
I'll think the lob was the one I really onto the same.
But everything else said Yeah, a lot. Yeah.
I mean, yeah, that's definitely that.
That's definitely my plate a week.
Positive ID number one MBA, top 10.
You have to be, ma'am.
Tell you the corny dude on the league pass didn't didn't put it up there.
It was heated, you know, saying J.
Cash want you playing with me man programs.
My It was actually I'm playing the weed.
Was frank stung because he's not known for being that aggressive? He's a timid little boy, and he just jumped up Tonto Ball in another thing.
I like the week I drove it up.
Well, it was this weakened by the last week.
I just was Julius Rondo's 30 point.
The three days we get there explodes, okay, but Frank run into the end of the car and just slamming the boy lead.
I'd like you said, Stick the little jazz.
A sim, I must, but I played my clear.
The game was the one where they went over the backboard, and one, I think they call that.
Oh, you don't know.
I have a question about that because Mike Brain in was a wily, so bright they kept asking about, you know, didn't go over the backboard, and it's like like it went over the bag, didn't count with something, but what's it matter? If it went over? The backboard is still counts right.
Why not it? Guess it's just the rule that if you shoot the shot behind the what's the name? The basket is not supposed to count.
Yeah, just so is this the ruination of counter? And it did count and again in Biggie's counted against us.
Right up the most points.
It's the audience.
You remember? You remember anything? Forget that one of the playoffs over for the backboard.
And they counted in the meat and they counted it.
That wasn't there.
Another name Drop Carter.
This way, we have the ref problems.
We have all kind of writes about it.
Everything will have problem with rats.
I think Brenda referees come to margins. Correct.
Got together to do cover at the Legion.
