What's popping is your boy, and I'm glad to be back off the All Star break so we can get into some talk about the New York Knicks.
Obviously, they haven't played, but there's still news.
There's always news in the media when it comes to the New York Knicks, right? There's still news in the media, so we're going to get down and talk about some things as going on in.
The recent media will talk about R. J.
Barrett and it's before moments in the Rising Stars game and what you thought about his performance and what it means for the next.
What it means for R.
Barrett would talk about coaching candidates, and we're gonna talk about that point guard position being the number one priority for the Knicks.
As we come around to the N B A draft and look, we're going to start.
We're really going to start going over draft prospects.
You know, I don't like to do it too early because I do want to give respect to the players that we have on the team.
But it's about that time.
Ladies and gentlemen, that we start to give a look.
Take a look at some of the draft prospects that the Knicks may have interest in coming up All right, that the Knicks just might have interested.
So we're gonna go ahead and get this thing going.
I got my man Nate here with me.
We're gonna chop it up a little bit.
We're gonna get right into it.
Start talking about R.
Barrett, and you know what he did at the Rising Stars game and how you feel about it.
What do you take from it if you take anything from it? The late news.
But no, it is what it is.
We're going to get it going.
My man Andre said, I'll be going live on YouTube later.
I'm going live on YouTube.
But for the front stoop, not for next weekly.
Next weekly is exclusively here, but I will be live on YouTube tomorrow as I do a game preview.
All right, so let me get him a man.
Nate, whoever else wants to join us in the whereby that whereby it's open.
Ladies and gentlemen, of course, the phone lines to be opened up.
Nate, what's going on? with you, man.
How you feeling? 01 2nd Let me get you.
Let me get you. Did you go? All right.
No, I'm good, man.
I'm just ready for basketball to start up again, man.
Kind of missing that, Boyd, But no football basketball coming back on Friday.
So looking for Yeah, I feel you.
I feel you. I definitely feel you.
Let me ask you this What you think about the all star game and all that stuff.
Ah, man, you know what? I have mixed opinions about off their weekend.
Um, obviously, I'm happy Barrett came out and played.
Listen, man, anytime you're playing with some big names on the court like that, you put up almost 30 points.
Think like six rebounds by the cyst.
I mean, it just shows the potential of RG Barry.
I mean, he's got it, you know, it's just it's gonna take odds.
He's got to be patient with the guy.
Hopefully, we see improvement after the All Star break that you don't want a lot of players, especially young players, really start, you know, getting in their groove because they've made it halfway through the season and Now it's kind of becomes like an agent.
We know what to expect and all that.
And now it's just a matter of just refining their game and getting ready for the off season and get ready for next year.
So I expected to continue to play well, I d'oh! Hopefully he can work on that jump shop.
What season's over? Um honestly, man over All Star.
I think they did change these things, man.
I'm just not not feeling it, man.
Like I'm skills challenge.
I think that you get rid of that dunk contest.
That was a joke.
I mean, every dunk looks the same.
Let's talk about that dunk contest for minute.
Let's talk about the build process.
Um, we're gonna get the r J band, but let's talk about the dunk contest.
What do you think about it? I mean, you just said a couple, you know, you just said you thought it was a joke.
Why do you think it's Joe? I thought today I thought the day was, um I thought that today, today I thought that this year's don't contest was actually pretty exciting.
Yeah, as a foursome created, it was fun.
There was some created.
There was some creative don't too, No doubt.
I mean, they're usually is creative dunks Problem.
I'm tired of watching people get jumped over people.
I think, like, you know, dunking.
No one dunks over somebody in in real games, maybe once in a blue moon that happens most of time.
You're just dunking to jump.
You jump in the dunk.
I I think you know this whole jump over people, man.
Just it gets old after a while, man.
I mean, I mean, I do understand.
I would like to see him do something other than jump over people.
Now, of course, the All Star Game or a taco or something like that.
Like just jump from the ground, man.
Now, the one thing I'll say there was, the dunk contest isn't really meant to be a dunk that you're going to do in the game, right? You're saying this is special dunks.
That's what it's four special dogs.
But like I said, I just don't like the proper saying.
I think they should get rid of the proxy thing and just letting dunk, man, I mean, I want to see more creativity rather than just whoever jumps over the tallest person wins or whatever it is.
You know, obviously.
I mean, Gordon got cheated on that last dunk.
I mean, jumping over talk.
So that was pretty **** impressive.
Even a taco with a fully standing, But he was pretty much there.
I mean, but they're Jones junior man like Aiken back.
He's got creativity that hops.
I thought that there was some nice dunks.
I thought that every Gordon when he threw it off this I mean, you know, and they caught it.
And whatever he did, I thought that that was a nice dunk.
Um, you know Derek Jones, Jr.
He's got some good dunks, but he went between the legs every single time, except for the last dunk.
Right? The last Duncan did a windmill every other don't keep went between the legs.
To me, that was a little bit.
I was like, Come on, man.
How many times you gonna go between the different weight problem? That's the problem with his dunk contests.
Um, could I went back and watched Vince Carter's done contest, man, because I mean I want to watch a good dumb conscious of what you did is Carter.
I mean, that guy will is just out of this world.
But everybody does the same thing nowadays.
We're just different variations of it.
It it just doesn't excite me anymore.
You know, oxygen between the legs.
I mean, you know, I think the one that did really, like was the between the legs and looked like a windmill.
And I think that was either Derrick Jones or that was Aaron Gordon.
I don't know who was there between the lake.
It was like a windmill dunk.
Yeah. Now pretty creative.
You know Derrick Jones? The one reason you know, everyone says that a G got robbed and maybe he did.
Maybe then I don't know.
Um and there's evidence out there that the way we cheated the one you knows evidence out there that Dwayne Wade cheated.
Big evidence, the big shots.
Everybody's in the chat here on SportsCastr man.
He said you guys were being here.
Thank you guys for being here with me, man.
And everybody else is listening to as a posting in the chat.
Thank you for being here.
You know, we try to get this thing on sports guys.
The proper man SportsCastr is the wave of the future When it comes to sports casting.
So you guys make sure you get down with the program.
But anyway, um, I thought that but one.
I thought that that Jones did you know, the same, you know, same dunk between the legs.
A lot of times there were fifties, right, But at some point, you do something different.
The last donkey did a windmill, and I respected that a little bit more than this.
Even though he jumped over, you know, Taco, for I kind of respected that Jones last dunk a little bit more than I respected and goings last night.
Although I do think that they were both worth probably 48 to 50 points.
Well, just Gordon's dunk just too advanced to the dunk off with the same dunk that there Jones Jr did.
There was a between the legs or whatever was that there Jones did earlier in the dunk contest, According to the same thing.
And that's how he advanced the dunk.
Oh, so I don't know, man.
It just seems like the same stuff all over again.
I mean, what are the only thing about it? What else are you going to do, though? Exactly? That's something Exactly.
And I mean, that's why I'm saying that they I don't know, man.
I mean, I guess that's why they use props and all that.
But I'm not even excited about the problem. Dan Jones.
He did the one don't even though he went between the legs.
Still, you had to do throw it off the backboard, and he jumped over him and put it between the leg. And don't.
That was nice, but I was pretty embarrassed. Pretty president.
Pretty impressive. Don't.
And then you had the other guy Forgot his name, you know, he grabbed it off the dude's had tapped the backboard and then dunked it.
That was you know, I mean, when when you when you do something like that, that really just shows how high you can jump.
Oh, you know, I like to see the creativity of the dunking, the different things in different ways.
You can move, contort your body.
I think I think also to my friend, my transit big basketball fan.
He made a great point.
He's like we need to have judges that are actual dunk contest participants or people that a dunk in the past and dunk contest is.
Then these other people that probably don't even know anything about the the the dynamics of a duck of what goes into a good dunk.
I don't everything 50 Everything was a 50 all the time.
Let me Come on, man.
Not everyone that never dunk with 50.
I don't even know if you gotta have guys in the n.
B. A. Has been in a dunk contest.
I think Get some professional dunkers that you see on YouTube and all that kind of stuff gets a professional dunkers, right and let them judge it.
They know what it is Now.
If you ever watched on TNT inside you inside the NBA's on TNT and then they used to be this dunk show that there was this whole after inside the now those guys were doing some dunks.
Those guys were doing some serious dunks.
You want to get the fans excited? Bring those guys that won't let them guys don't cause they was serious, Every single one of them.
Duncan's, That's what they did for a living.
But you want to get the fans excited.
Bring them out. Let him. Don't.
Yeah, I totally agree, man.
No disrespect the Dwyane Wade.
But when it doesn't even come out of the dunker in this career, I mean, you tell of a player, but he's never been a dunker.
So I thought him being outside plus, on top of that, one of his teammates is or former teammates is playing for his team.
Of course, is gonna be a little biased toward I mean, come on.
So, you know, But anyway, what do you think about the format? What did you think about the format? Just think it was interesting.
I I'll be honest with a man.
I totally forgot about them putting a new format in, Um, it was competitive, but at the end, I did like that.
I agree with and be present time I have reviewed and be never my life.
Um, I don't think it should have been one on the free throw.
I thought it should have been one.
You know, making a shot or something like that.
Uh, I like that.
They did give the charity.
Um, you know, I actually I would have loved to have seen that the winner, But when the loser of the game would have got the same amount of money donated that the winner got, I've got the kind of unfortunate that one got more than the other, you know? But I I get it.
I mean, but it's all going to charity, man.
So I mean, hey, if you can match the winnings of the winner to the loser, everybody wins, You know thing. Yeah.
Um, you know, I thought I'm gonna be honest with you once they named the All Star the all Star MVP trophy.
Once they've named it the cold be Prying award or whatever they named it.
I thought immediately LeBron's gonna get it.
I thought it was going to LeBron.
I really did right.
But it's not to say that they still they ain't do things that that were the way they wanted to do it.
Right toe win the game.
You had LeBron James a Laker hook up with Anthony Davis, a Laker, but who's also from Chicago, right? And then the M V P is quiet.
Leonard, who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, who also happens to come from L. A.
That's a lot of coincidences right there.
But, hey, it is, you know, I mean, but that's a lot of that's a lot of coincidences to all go down at once.
But it happened.
It is what it is, right? But I thought it was, you know, it was all right.
You know, at first I didn't pay attention as much, and I was looking at the scoring, and I was like, What the heck is going on here? And then, you know, my daughter explained to me what was going on.
It's all right, you know, seeing all right and then a full quarter.
You really got down.
They played some basketball, so that was cool.
You know, one segment I'd like him to bring back, and I don't know if you remember it, but remember what needs to have like a current NBA player.
They have a former NBA player, and he's having like, a w N b a player, and they would play like I think it was horse or something? Are some like that where they had, like, it hit spots on the court and whoever hit it the fastest one.
Remember that? Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know you're talking about, right? I wish they bring that one back.
Man. I like that.
You know, I thought that was a cool I don't know the cool event, but I guess they got ready because they brought the skills one in the skills.
I like the skills event.
See the skills? I think it's exciting.
The three point shootout is exciting.
This slam dunk contest gets a little bit.
I think they do need to come up with some more exciting things.
I'd like to see a one on one contest.
Right. I'd like to see one on one.
I think that would be cool.
Throwing out three on 3 20 minutes. I'm like that.
That be careful.
You know, uh, you know, I think there are things to be pretty good, but let's talk about R. J. Barrett man.
R J Barrett twenties.
What? He had 27 points. Six.
Yeah, 27 65 rebounds.
Um, he played man, right? He should have been the NDP, man.
But you didn't did it this time, didn't we? Didn't win but didn't win.
So, you know, you know, it just makes sense that they're going to give the M V p to the guy, you know, to deter ah, player from the winning team.
OK, now you're you know, r J Barrett in his, uh, you know, in his post postgame interview, you know, Said he was playing hard, right? The accident, You know, he was playing hard.
He said, That's the only way that I know how to play.
I only know how to play hard.
Only know how to go a little.
I love hearing that.
I'm not gonna lie, Thio.
I like totally right there, man.
Yeah, that's the kind of mentality that you want to have to leave it on the floor.
Yeah, you know, that's what you want.
But I want to ask you this.
What do you take from it? What do you take from? He had 27 points, six assists, five rebounds.
I mean, I take the fact is, I mean, let's be honest, they don't play defense, just like in the All Star Game.
until, like, the end of the game or something like that.
But the fact is that he she he outshined a lot of big names on that floor.
That was impressive.
I mean, Lucas don t know what Luca Luca was on the that was out there.
You locals on his team? They were They were team world.
Hey, look, a daunting man.
That's that's impressive, you know? I mean, 90 year old guy going out there and bawling out.
You know, I played Zion.
I mean, I tell you what, man.
A lot of people are talking about John Moran and are talking about Zion.
You know, uh, people people were talking a lot about R. J. Barrett.
Man, he's kind of like that quiet guy that nobody really is talking about, you know? But I'll tell you what, man, the more I see this kid I like and I love his demeanor.
Man, I, you know, may get killed on the chapter saying this when I see him, I just I think Kobe Bryant, because he's got that mentality.
He doesn't get too high.
He doesn't get too low.
He keeps himself even keel.
He's very honest that his answers and he just wants to play like I remember in the summer.
I don't remember this, But when they when they asked him, like Why don't you share videos of you working out all that? He's like, I don't need to show videos.
I do my own thing.
I love that because Coach ever did that.
Colby never did.
But let me ask, you know, they don't think.
Let me ask you, right? You know, he had 27 points and he has 66 rebounds.
Five assists it Waas, you know, an All star.
First of all, let me say this R.
J Bear is not made to be one of these All Star Game type of players.
That's not his style of game.
So if you're expecting our debate to come out and be able to, you know, you know, do a whole bunch of fancy dunks and a whole bunch of fancy moves and all this kind of stuff, that's not J.
Berry, you know? I mean, it's not it's not gonna happen.
He's not that style of player, so he's never, never going to really look good.
I mean, Obviously, he scored a lot of points in order for him to if he ever wanted.
If the team world would have won, he probably he probably would have gotten EVP.
And he makes the All Star team, Let's say next season.
A rising Stars game.
R J for R J Berto Win M v p That game and his team when he went M v p that game.
He's gonna have to play hard because he's not gonna do all the fancy passes and dribble moves and dunks and, you know, jump out the world like you see Miles, bridges and all that kind of stuff.
You know, saying because that's not who he is, it's not his game.
But a lot of people have seen a lot of people.
I've seen a whole lot of comments.
You know what people saying? What's up, Guillermo? How you doing? E o See a whole lot of comments about, um, you know, he's, you know, see, you know this.
This is why you gotta give him the ball.
That's why the ball has to be in his hands.
That's why this is on.
You know what? Yes.
You know, we want to see R.
Bird, you know, had a ball in his hands and do this and do things.
But we do really have to still understand that it is an all star type of game.
You know, I'm saying that it's not much defense being plead.
You're saying you're gonna be able to do a lot of things.
It doesn't mean that he's going to translate 27 points, six rebounds and five assists every night.
Open to the NBA's just because he has the ball in his hands, you know, saying and people you know talked about, you know, you just got to let him go.
I mean, he still didn't knock down a jump shot in the game, you know, all of his shots came out the basket, right? So it's not like I signed and approved, so that's gonna make him score 27 points.
So, you know, I think, you know, still, even with the ball in his hands a whole lot, I think you're gonna get a lot of the same from all day bet right now, because this is this is what it is right now, and there's nothing wrong with it. It's okay, It's cool.
You're saying this is gonna be in the N B A.
In average, 14 points a game.
As a rookie, it's not bad.
Yeah, it's no wrong isn't good.
So you know, for us for us to be.
I feel like fans are pleading.
Give him the ball so he could score 20 or 23 points a game.
But that's probably not gonna happen while R.
Berry right now you know what I'm saying? Way want.
Want him to have the ball in his hand so we could see what he could do, right? And kind of, you know, see, you know, if we have things flow around him, see what he could do with things flowing around.
Don't expect them to be dropping 23 24 points tonight because it's not him right now.
He's a 14 point per game score, and that's okay, you know, saying what do you think? Gamma.
What do you take from the All Star from the Rising Stars game? All J bury anything at all.
I said nothing from that game. Absolutely.
What is this? I'm watching the game and it's like R J.
What, 20 something? Because, ah geez, actually played it like Wait, are we supposed to school? You know, it's funny.
R J Pipes have been better off in the All Star Game, where they were trying to score in the fourth quarter versus that trash.
We're not trying to give the thought up the boat.
His eye on the guy was missing.
Dunk. Obviously, Zain could make monsters.
Don't get me wrong, but it's like people, you know, I get so mad because, like you said, when you watch R.
Barrett, he is not a flashy guy like, but some of the greatest players were not flashy places.
And you remember Joe Dumars wasn't a fat, flashy play like that.
But his defense was great and he played great alongside Isiah Thomas.
Barry will be fine.
The kid before he got hurt, memory by somebody could shoot.
Remember the 23 games he went on? He was hitting on the three point line, But men, what everybody was saying Oh yeah, R J Back hit hit.
The father hit a free throw before he got here.
What was he doing at the free throw line is like, Oh, crap, Margie, but it's like guys, he's a freakin rookie and he's actually doing I think he's actually doing better than some other than he's probably about finding the best.
Forget the necks of that in years.
Besides, you could probably take forcing is and you don't need to stay.
He's probably almost outperformance position more than Porzingis is but R.
Barrett for where this team is right now. I'm uncomfortable.
I love his game.
I love a sin. Asi again.
A lot of intangibles are j bad that when we draft a guy like, say, Halliburton from Ohio, stop Iowa State.
When you get guys to play around him, you're going to see how good the kid is.
One's eye on winds Zion Wilson is a walking injury.
Even when you watch the pelican, Sam and Nate, he's not the gold to die like that.
And people always defense.
Good, decent, weakside defense.
But he's not a shutdown.
Defender meets are not making his basket.
He had that one game.
We hit the 34 threes, whatever, but a lot of his points again come from within the pain.
So a lot of people.
They just look, look at the flare and because again, ESPN they think hard, Remember, use the eye, member Jalen Rose said.
I think they said, Oh, I take John Marino Zay our lives I think it was him I can remember Oh, and it's like Well, actually, and I agree with that because I wanted to.
But when you look at him again from basketball minds, Zion limbs and, yes, the monster dumps, he's had the things with high school, all that several of the mix tapes, whatever.
But John Moran is a plus multiplier and a dynamic player at a key position, and no one gave him.
Zion was playing at Duke.
Johnson is playing at Murray State.
So again, I don't feed into the media stuff.
I think it's hot wash.
I think it's trash R.
J's back and find you the funny things that they really don't talk about.
Our day talk about 100 barrel.
Like they say, the references I like or genre Oh, the mixed probably wish they could have gone the thing just so.
This is like they make it seem like we just drafted Jordan Hill again like the hell you talking about John, Right? Eye's fine.
Like a Yes, of course I'm gonna John Marin R J bad some all.
He's just a consolation prize it again.
Look at how John Burns said.
I liked Johnny a lot, but the way he's playing, he needs to take notes from guys like Derrick Rose and in terms of preserve your body because a lot of this place is well, he's playing a lot more explosive, and it may not stay long story.
Most of them are state.
Preserve your body in 60.
I think it's 1 71 80 Some like that.
Preserve your body and and slowly let your physical prime reaches.
Mental players like Brooke and I do not want to being hurt.
And the thing about what's true, what was for the child? If Westbrook felons, who is that? He thought his athleticism and working 100% on every second works and it doesn't an MBA think coaches a jogger jerker car.
I can't get a good mom.
The only thing I say that I pulled a terrible sin, but I say, John, I thought that Simpson was it seems, blood.
I'm rubbing off.
The only thing I'll say about that with Job Moran is he doesn't have the same.
Oh, you don't have the same weight.
You know, you go to the basket aggressively and things like that, but it doesn't have the same weight as dead grows.
So like that Grows would come in and dunk with so much force.
And he'd come down boom landing on his knees and he had that weight landing on his knees. Job.
Moran is, what, 1 60 something? I mean, anything from college was 1 70 so he was making money.
I don't know he's now, but, you know, I just I just feel like I like John Ryan issued on John Mayer.
What little bit, I think he has some peace around like Jaren Jackson and the kid doing Brooke.
Is this, You know, don't don't allow the hyper whatever, because again what I think he allowed the hyper gets his head and he never developed as a point guard.
And people look R.
Barry, and it's like because with Nick's because of our record, but they don't watch game, but you are.
What is that? Anybody told R J.
bad when he's putting up 20 in the begin this season.
I didn't hear nothing from you start heading in the Games.
Now he's studying.
That's one thing about even.
I put money on it.
Barrett was on seven pass, a hardy band went after like Jack Coleman.
Jacko wasn't doing that well.
J Barrel nto the next scene like some something like that, saying What's the Lakers? And he's put up 20 points a game.
He still couldn't shoot that, Whatever it was.
All man, this guy's so much.
But I know I've seen how to make it work when I want to play favorites that corny So again, I'm good r j bad.
I like his game.
I like them tangible.
He just needs guys to play around, and he needs a new dynamic point guard.
I'm looking at Iowa State.
Ah, reso have heard.
Now I have some work on his game to ba Hallah Burn.
He is athletic and skinny to music.
Wait a little bit, but one thing he has, he has great court anticipation.
He has good defense, his three as hell, but it's a shot is I'm not saying it's Ziggy A.
It's like, but he could work on it.
And he you're her.
Anything but I'm slacking off anything, so I take him in a heartbeat.
I'm good with the future.
Argued that I ate Tony Crow.
Man, what's going on with you? Broke? Oh, Tony Cruz E.
Hey, man, what's up with you, man? I'm really I'm on my vacation right now.
That's what's up, my man, is why I'm going to say Well, yeah, because you know what? You never know.
So I am gonna say ways that, but yeah.
Enjoy yourself, man.
That's good. That's what sucks closely.
Yeah, I became that. We can't.
I mean, check me.
It's been a minute chat. You're black.
Did you know I didn't know.
I didn't know that job Moran is I wanted to play you bought together.
That's while Bro.
That's why would I would love to see them a few games because they had to be killing it There had to be killing it.
Tony, I mean, had to be off.
The 10 show had to be off the team.
I had to be, but Joe I want to bring you up, cause I'm gonna ask you this.
The Knicks are in a obviously in a culture.
So it's the one thing I don't like is that, you know, there is.
You know, all this stuff is coming out.
You know what, Mike Miller still hear all this stuff coming out distant.
And the other thing I wish that, you know, I don't know if it's the Knicks letting stuff out or what it is or if there's someone out there, just let an information leak.
But I Listen, if Mike Miller is not gonna be here, Mike Miller is not gonna be here.
But for the time that is here, I wish you could just be like, just let this man coach let this season and and then let whatever is gonna come out, come out.
You know what I mean? How you feel about it? Oh, initially.
Well, hey, it's the art of Steve Self and initially I really didn't have a problem.
What would he say? Oh, but you know, when I when I sat back and doing about it, it was unprofessional and being with the Knicks of all teams that that happened with, you know, it just didn't look good optically right, Right.
But, I mean, but Jake Yeah, right.
He played well, Coach.
Well, the team has improved under him.
And the Nixon made that statement where they said, you know, the new GM is gonna make that decision, and I agree.
Maybe maybe they want to keep him right. You never know.
No, I'm saying you never know now, but, you know, I just kind of wish that they would just let it if they do talk to somebody on the low Now, let's keep it that way.
Keeping on a low Just let Mike Miller do it.
It's just unfair to me that he's got to coach this team.
All this world wind stuff is around him, you know, saying about this coach this this coach that, you know, this coach wants the job the next looking at this guy and that guy, you know, saying what? He's trying to coach these guys the best way that he came.
You're saying it really undermines him so bad? You know me.
To me, it just undermines him really bad, you know? But that being said, You know, names that came up over the last couple of days.
J. Right, right.
He's the name that came up over the last couple of days from Villanova one, you know, want one report came out and said that, you know, the Knicks had interest in jail right now.
Another report comes out.
Says Villanova coach Jay Wright has no interest in the Knicks.
Yeah, all right, Cool, Right, right.
They have the wound that have really offer.
You know, they haven't really offer up something special to get him, you know.
And then, of course, now and I think Nate's brought this guy's name up plenty of times.
Tom Thibodeau was guy that's out there.
Okay, he's been linked to a full out, you know, he's been with us before.
Oh, the one thing I'll say about this is if we get him, we know the focus is gonna be defense.
Know that for sure? My only concern I have is he runs his plays into the ground.
He plays, um 35 40 minutes.
You know, I think that was the downfall of the young Chicago Bulls scene, so that is a concern.
But on the flip side, it's We got a bunch of young players and they should be able to play 35 minutes again.
That's true. So that's true.
I way you know, Regardless, I'm going to support the team so that that's where I'm at with it.
Now I feel like, honestly, I feel like a Tom Thibodeau of the next world, too.
Hired Tom Thibodeau, I think.
I think Tom Thibodeau might keep Mike Miller around.
Listen, Tom Thibodeau, like I did not believe it or not.
I and I thought that Tom Thibodeau, uh, when Phil Jackson was the general manager, the president, whatever you call them and he brought in, you know he started.
You know, he brought it and started bringing in.
He brought in joking Noah, um you know, Then you know we had Derrick Rose.
You know, one of the things and I thought that Phil Jackson's soul and bringing in joking Noah is that Tom Thibodeau ran a lot of trying stuff and he ran it through joking.
Um, he didn't do it, you know? Of course, he kind of you kind of did it a lot, you know, He did a lot of things.
So they there grows so that he could maximize des Grosses talent.
But when their clothes didn't have the ball in his hand or Derrick Rose wasn't in the game, Joe came.
No one was able to run a lot of offense through that high post, you know, back in them days.
But I thought that was one of the reasons that, you know, he brought in joking.
And I think everybody understands that s o tip.
Tom Thibodeau is known to run some triangle offense.
You know, it doesn't mean he's going to do it now, but he's known to do it, or at least use a lot of the principles Mike Miller was brought in under Phil Jackson because he utilizes Ah, lot of triangle principles.
Both guys seem to understand how to use defense.
I could see then being head coach and assistant coach and working together well, ties a typical would be brought in.
I could see that being a strong, uh, duo as far as head coach end assistant coach, you know? So I don't know.
I think the one thing I will say is I prefer MBA coat some of her MBA culture experience rather than, you know, bringing someone in from the college drink.
Oh, are you bringing in a first time? First time head coach in the NBA? I will say that 100? Yes, I had No, I had no problems.
We takes, I mean one cent, because looking at okay, our president, the guy was gonna be president Lee our roles.
He's gonna be new to the position, you know, saying who knows what he's gonna do at the GM spot? Hopefully, he brings in someone who has a lot of experience at the GM spot.
That's what he's gonna need.
He's gonna need a number two guy that understands the details, the structure, And you know how to run an MBA organization.
In my opinion, I'm not sure what that is in the back. Okay is gone.
In my opinion, you can't have Ah, president, that is Ah NIU.
And who knows who's gonna happen with the G m e.
Didn't have a coach says, you know, somebody's gotta have some experience, you know, I'm saying somebody's gotta have some experience somewhere, so yeah, you know, You know, if you're gonna have ah, president, that's new to the game.
You better have a head coach that has some some experience, some MBA coaching experience, you know, it's I'm simple.
So, you know, now you know, You see, What if chase was between Tombo tens and Mark Jackson, Who would you would you prefer? Well, you know, I think everybody knows my stance about Mark Jackson.
You know, saying I feel I mean, this is just me.
Personally, I feel like Mark Jackson.
It's going to be a Larry Brown type of situation all over again.
Not that Mark Jackson is gonna do anything crazy.
I just feel like I just feel like New York and Mark Jackson and Mark Jackson as the coach is gonna be explosive.
That's just my opinion.
You saying I feel like it's gonna be explosive? My respect Mark Jackson and everything that he stands for saying what? You know what? You know what I respect Mark Jackson and I respect his coaching do***ent, but I don't feel like we have to really go for names right now.
We got to go for people who are just going to get it done, you know, meaning that it's not that Mark Jackson won't get it done.
But I don't feel like we just need the big spotlight, because that's what it's gonna bring.
Well, I was gonna bring the big spotlight in the spotlight is gonna be on the coach every single day, every single night and every little world that he says is going to be hung on and spread all over the media, you know? I mean, you look at coach Mike Miller right now.
Maybe it's because he's an in term head coach, you know? So people don't care too much.
Um, but he just he just sticks to basketball.
This is all about the excess.
Knows a strategy.
Nothing outside of that you don't say.
So there's nothing you can put in the news.
Besides, you know, I don't care about that.
We got a game to think about, You know what I'm saying? And, uh, you know that that's all I think we need.
That's all I think we need, you know, in a guy I do too have halfway.
But I think I think Stephen Ing has made a good point in the sense that Mark Jackson will take all of the pressure off all of the players where he will be able to own all the pressure, which means the players.
All I gotta do is go out.
I'm playing perform, oh, playing produce.
You get a guy like to or not just sense, but you get.
You get somebody else who's not ableto take them the blood of the media attention, then write.
It trickles that toe to the place.
I get it. I kind of agree with that.
I kind of agree with that.
But I could see it on the flip side, too.
I could see what Mark Jackson him saying one thing.
You did a lot of pressure on the players, too, you know? I'm saying so I could see it both ways.
I could see it both ways.
Um, you know, it's it's Ah, I mean, I don't know.
It's gonna be a tough one.
It's gonna be a tough one. But this is what I don't want.
And it's what I feel like the Knicks do sometimes, right? I don't want them to higher so one, because they think he's the fan favorite, All right.
I want somebody that just knows that ends and outs of basketball is gonna work tirelessly to try to make this basketball team better.
Going to stay away from all of the the the junk, you know, that's that's outside of basketball, really.
Just focus on the exes and the old and the strategies and all that kind of stuff.
Man, um, you know, you know, I don't want to name just because, you know, they think it's the fan favorite.
I feel like the next Do that sometimes to keep butts in the seats, you know, try to figure out okay, who live like this week and And what can we do to get this guy's name? You know, I'm saying it is guys named, you know, so I don't know, but I'm gonna come tomorrow.
I see Mark running off the mouth.
So I want to see what Mark got to say.
I don't see marking Wow, in a couple days.
See what Mike's talk about my man Mike.
What's going on, bro? How you feeling? I saw my brother like when you When you're not, when you're not doing a job, it's like an attorney. Be mad.
I felt like an eternity for me, too.
I was You know, I'm like, I don't even know if I know if I'm gonna be able to get on the stream.
Right? Everything packed.
Don't go crazy and mess up.
What's up? How you doing? Good man.
Man up, you know, just got off of Ah ah, tough loss last night.
Playoff loss for my girls.
You know, we had a playoff loss last night was a tough one, you know, saying tears all over the place.
It was terribly, but But, you know, they worry is, though, because we were down.
And, you know, we was in the fourth quarter and they huddled up.
My daughter was talking to Mom was like, You know, you know, we can't, you know, we got to go out fighting and she couldn't get the words out.
She broke down in tears the whole huddle broke down in tears and walk back out on the court tears all every all five girls in tears and they just start battling and they start coming back.
But time ran out they cared so that a bunch of girls that care about the game and care about what they do on the floor.
That's a plus in any you know, Coach is ours.
You just don't want to build a nosh a lot.
Kids play the game and, like, lost don't mean something to them shooting some tea, playing the competitive game.
That's like That's it.
So we got one more chance, man.
We got state playoffs starting next week to make it all the way there.
You make it all in there, it's possible.
And if we do well, let's put it like this.
If we win the first game, you know we got we got the quarterfinals on Tuesday.
If we win the quarter finals, then we got to semi finals later on in the week and in the semi finals we play one of our rivals, so that's gonna be electric.
And if we could beat them, then we'll be in a championship game so we'll see what happens, man.
Well, you know, we're gonna take We're gonna take what happened last night when I last night and we will learn from it.
We're gonna take it to this game.
But let me ask you what do you think about these? Just talk about Tom Thibodeau, Okay? I was just hoping to Guam.
Oh, a Listen, I don't want people to judge Tom Thibodeau for what he did for the wolves.
Because you have to look at it.
Is this, um, Andrew Wiggins and Contini towns right before Tom Thibodeau was hired.
Those players to me, they was already ah, special treatment.
You know, they got special treatment from the organization, right? So when people about Tom Thibodeau's coaching, I want everybody to revert back to those five years that he had for the bulls and what he's done for the bulls for what he had.
Because why I'm looking at Tom Thibodeau, right? You bring structure, you know what he's doing on the floor? You know that he can a match intensity.
He will be perfect for r J.
Because until girls about business and our Jake about business, And if you want to see r j develop in a way for him to be successfully, I think he's perfect for the next organization because number one he comes to work Sam.
This team needs a coach that comes Toh, Workman said.
Listen, it's all serious if Derrick Rose didn't get hurt after the 2012 situation and what Coach Thibodeau is good with that team and how limited that team waas.
But he was able to develop a lot of those players made joking. No All Star.
No one thought he was gonna be also coming on college level gang.
Okay, He made Jimmy Butler until it all star in the play they use today, Development stout works.
And everywhere he goes you want to see Knox become somewhat of an N b A player, someone you want our place to be n b a players.
I think he know how to get what we want to see from now on before because a lot of people thinking off Yeah, he, uh, you might make some of these players play so much minutes.
Times is different.
Yeah, he probably he's called not the change that in some ways, within the game, it's it's we have to go back and look at the minutes.
I just playing certain guys. Yeah, cool.
But no one was complaining about that at the time.
when he was winning games consistently.
There's all that with some one guy started to break down.
I understand that.
But who would have thought that that's like, That's like, You have a good five year run with the Bulls and all of a sudden your place start breaking down.
Now you say, Oh, it was his fault.
You can't do that because again, you enjoying the wind.
You don't have no problem with that until you start seeing Don't rolls the way.
Yeah, he plays the game.
It was almost bound to happen when you watch how he plays the game.
He played with a lot of reckless abandonment.
The way how is Torque they're roast.
Tour is like one of the 11 of the most.
There's like a Ferrari running way.
It was upon him to learn how to change the game in his game.
The coach is not responsible for that.
Seriously, No, seriously, miss.
So So when people say, Oh, he's going to overplay our players.
Listen, bro, all I know that guy, he has a great track record.
You have a structure that the Knicks need badly.
I think you could get some our players, especially AJ.
I think, you know, ordering a perfect Max Man match made in heaven because I rather roll with tens and r J.
J's are young button, you know, started.
We look to get better and better and to be part of our future, to even be the face of the next.
I don't want to hear J right, because, Coach, I don't want that.
No, no, no, no, no.
Coach cultures from college sometimes don't translate to the MBA.
Okay, Very, too.
It just don't work like that, man.
Only you're not Brad Stevenson.
And on top of that, the only reason I brought Seema has survived is because he had Danny Ainge behind him.
Okay, when we have a GM that's behind our culture, we don't have to worry about his job, then that's a different story.
But the fact that we've been so, so, so fragile in the office we have to have a coach there have somewhat of a great great great great track record and player development in defense.
What he wants from a defensive from a difference is sending his offense with a top 10 in the temples A lot of people don't understand that he can.
He he does have offense.
It was the fact that when Derrick Rose went down his best player, he had to go through his second, which was joking Noah, and to get what he got on Joe, Keep Noah.
Top Father N V P.
Conversation and All Star and Dokey.
No was very limited in his in his game.
I said he did a A plus job, even when you go back and look at those players.
That bull scene was never does, was never blown off.
They wanted gets Miami Heat.
And almost every year you expect Miami Heat the win.
So again, I rather Tom Thibodeau.
I don't want to hear Jay, right? I don't want to hit Campari.
I don't want to hear anybody that don't have a track record in development players and a defensive Ah ah, defensive what you call a philosophy that he has okay, and a lot of people don't yet understand.
He used to be the master mark for the next coaching back in the days on defense, So please believe it.
He know how he know that New York fire.
He's one of those coach naked with stare, but we have to have a general manager that's going to stand by him.
And this guy that's coming in worked with him.
So again, we have to have that coach and general manager states stable nous that Leon is gonna bring because Liana Tom Thibodeau are entwined with each other, and then we can go from there.
Okay, so I don't want to hear you next fan, because you talk about I want stable, Tom.
Typical of the guy that was stable.
I don't want people to judgment Timber where we could Those two claims that he had up there was just not his personality period.
And it was already entitled.
And you can't talk to young players that didn't earn nothing and got paid.
Okay, it's a different situation.
Tom Thibodeau was in a perfect situation cause he got tired to get you near.
Ties can help reaches up.
Times can help preaches, uh, you know, whatever his messages, you know, times knows it through to the place And the best thing.
Our players are young and unproven.
It can't talk to top Thibodeau.
They can't they can't both state shut stuff.
Okay, is a different ball game.
Okay, It's a different book, and even if he comes out of players, that's a good thing, because I listen to joking Noah podcast You did for the Scott Peterson pocket with some guy that not Chicago Bulls fans, and you listen to our target. Gibson.
Talk about Tom Thibodeau.
You have to respect what? No Whoa! Saying about Scott.
So So, So So so.
But I'm going over there.
Got stolen from what I'm reading.
This is from Mark Berman in New York Post.
He really wants the job, but in a confidante of Tom, Thibodeau says he could taste it and he may even be in the lead.
So currently Tom Thibodeau has been visited teams, but he's primarily hanging out in L.
A near Doc Rivers and Tyrone Loop, referring to the Clippers head coach and assistant um, Thibodeau.
He was Hey, was Doc Rivers, top defensive assistant in Boston.
They also showed up at Golden State's headquarters to give Warriors coach Steve called Vice on newcomer Andrew Wiggins.
So he's been, you know, he's around, he he's around and we'll see.
Let me tell you something before I go, Uh, when you are.
Thompson both throughout the games and we used to talk about coaches that that don't, you know, tell players were to be That dude is up 24 7 until the game is gun directing plays where they should be what they should run from Tom.
But that is a coach, coach, man.
And I feel very positive about him when it comes a player, development and structure and go there too valuable things that New York need because just the personality of New York fans.
It's very sit Jinny and very sickle, because it's just like when you walk out on the street in my everybody's in a rush, you have toe add someone that, not a turn, that turn that drink down.
It's like you being the hype of the type of person and that you meet a female that not a turn.
You turn your clock now to make you into a better person.
We need a coach like that.
Do not have turned down his fans because it is getting terrible now because we're looking to just every year we're moving in a different direction.
We cannot have that.
I have these years wanted to develop.
I feel you. I feel you, man.
Didn't eight hanging on for second? God, Nate, what's your take on a map? Yeah, I mean, like I told you before.
I mean, I throw that name out there many a times, and here's the thing why I say Thibodeau is the right guy because not only is he a proven coach whose coach players that have exceeded their expectations and gone on to be better, great players, but he's a culture changing coach like he from day one.
I have no doubt in my mind he is going to say first things first.
We are going to be a defensive minded team.
Everything will come off our defense.
Our offense will be created by the defense.
I have no doubt in my mind he will set the culture on Day one, and that's what this next team needs.
We don't have a leader right now because we traded them away.
So Thibodeau is going to be the leader of this team, and I think that's why he wants this job so bad is because he's not gonna have a lot of ego to deal with.
You're just gonna have a bunch of young kids that need direction.
And Thibodeau can bring that because he's got experience.
He's coached guys like Butler.
He's coached guys like Paul Pierce.
He's coached guys like Kevin Garnett.
He's coached guys that are Hall of Famers that are all stars.
So if I'm a young player, I'm shutting my mouth and putting my head down and listen to whatever he says.
Because he he knows his stuff.
He is a proven coach.
That is why you don't get a guy like Jay right or John Calipari, because the thing is that college coaches don't transition to the MBA.
Well, look at John Beeline.
He had to resign or they let him go today because he could not get to the heads of these young players in the N B. A.
You know, he was better suited and stay in college.
Thibodeau's already played on some of the best teams.
He was one of the big reasons why the Celtics won their championship.
He keep but took a Bulls team that was garbage and took him to the playoffs.
Countless number of years, and they competed all the time.
You want some of the best teams? Even took a project in Minnesota and, yeah, I didn't work out as much, but I feel like they didn't give him enough time.
But, I mean, he put him in the playoffs.
I mean, so I mean, all right, Coach, the problem is he and we need somebody to shake the tree and B and set the culture from day one.
Does it bother you at all that it that it didn't work out with him in Minnesota, you know, because I didn't think I had Minnesota.
I think Minnesota has a lot of issues.
Um, outside of cat.
They really didn't have a lot of talent around him.
And I don't think they had the defenders that he wanted on this team.
I mean, yeah, Mark mentioned they were top 10 and offense, but they were terrible defense.
You know, um, I think we have some willing defenders that I think Thibodeau would want to coach and coach up better.
Um, Hey, man, not every situation is going to be perfect, but he did take him to the playoffs, man.
again a team that wasn't that talented.
You took him to the playoffs.
It was more of their offense that what they got in there.
But still, you know, I mean, that's that's impressive.
You ****s the takes a Bulls team to the playoffs.
When you look at their roster, I mean, outside of Derrick Rose.
I mean, they didn't have a bunch of big name players.
They just played well with the team.
I think this next team is perfect for him because, like I said, we have no leader right now.
He would be the leader and he would be country coaching a lot of young kids.
And I think that these young kids, if they want to be great, they would listen to him and follow whatever he he'd be really wants to do because he's got the track record.
He's coaching, He's coached good players.
Uh, you know, Yes, he has any any knows, howto He's coached big name players, right? It's coast big name players. We'll see.
Tell me what you think about Thompson.
But I don't want to get there talking about point guards with you.
So the thing with Tom Thibodeau right, Um, in the main issue I have with them is that he runs players into the ground.
You know, the temple situation.
I agree with these guys like you had a guy in Andrew Wiggins Street.
I think they just paid when they brought in Butler or he got paid.
I think when bullets I can remember.
But you had a guy was literally he's lazy, ultra, super talented, but just didn't have the drive on.
Do you know the thing with the thing with Tom Thibodeau's that when he's most successful is that he has had players who follow under him, right? And I Look, I'm from the old school.
Reinhardt bought that stuff right? You play, you play on the discipline, you play in the structure.
I'm all for that.
You think about that? He had a gun.
Derrick Rose, who was m v p.
Uber talented before you got hurt.
Um, and you had a bunch of guys joking.
No, it came from a winning pedigree in Florida.
Let's let's not forget that.
So I understand it.
No, we didn't come in m v p because look his offense games limited but in terms of selling out on defense like that was his forte.
And you know he fit Kurt from the top.
Typical rolled a hard worker, was injury prone a little bit, but also had playoff experience.
I think he actually expendable for him.
Kurt hired that older Bulls team, So there's a guy who understood what a pedigree.
We have veterans like that.
Yes, this is a good situation because they understand what's at stake.
They understand and get the younger players to play under them, right? The thing with Tom Thibodeau I'm scared about is that you know, when you look at this next teen people say, Oh, you have a bunch of young players remember, these guys just does that Young doesn't mean they won't listen to anybody, you know? I mean, just go and and usually the one that younger don't wanna listen to anybody.
So that's the thing I'm scared about.
What? Tom Thibodeau, That you're gonna have guys on his team? Look, you so and no sin is gonna kill me.
But you have a guy ran who? Let's be honest.
He's a proud guy, right? He's a guy who he's not really have proper coaching, and I think that because he's been productive in the individual stats, he might take time and again.
He's got time to increase defense.
What seems Kryptonite is defense.
He does not play a lick of defense whatsoever.
That is, he ain't doing that consistently, at least, you know.
I mean, and it's so it's like, you know, you have a guy Tom Thibodeau and a guy like Randall.
You know, Randall, my divided locker, not say has a whole bunch of friends or something like that.
But you just never know what a guy like Randall might do.
You have a disciplinarian like like touch of tips coming in.
Tip needs, Ah, few veterans to kind of lead this team and follow under him because he's a guy.
I think that people are gonna listen to him unless he has a general in a team to kind of implement what he wants to do.
Look, I mean, look at guys like George call right Joe's car. I'm not saying Samos timid.
Oh, but George Karl me, Marco talking about it.
George Karl was affected because he had players who want to play under that that tenacity.
Remember, he just had issues with Carmelo because he wasn't this loving guy.
Who's the guy? Just scale Aegis Just just mean guy, man like, you know, me.
But here's a tactician.
He had that those Sonics team hunters.
So the thing with time and also offensively, I don't know.
I think I'll check the stats on the symbols.
You know, with the whole again he had there was a disgusting and BP Kenny.
He was He was like he was like, Ah, Hannibal or cartage against Rome, which is the Miami Heat? The time right, the only team to get Coulter like, really challenging, not only to get close because they want only the upcoming team to really challenge LeBron James.
So again he needs support a player.
It is a bunch of veterans.
He's perfect to play to play around.
That's why I've seen from him.
But in terms of potential, yeah, I'm not against it, man.
I'm not against it.
I mean, the Knicks need a guy who can communicate with players and has proper schemes to get guys in the best position.
If Tom Thibodeau's that, I don't mind it, but if it's somebody else.
Hey, because I was Brad Stevens wanted.
Why would Why would it might prove Brad Stevens and look what he did for those too.
So I understand They probably gonna achieve a little bit, but brassieres lot better than what people were originally expected to be.
So I think the biggest thing that next need is a disciplinarian.
You guys just gonna, you know, eat.
Not gonna take no garbage from any of the players, You know, it's Tom Thibodeau, that guy.
Guess we'll see.
I mean, you know, look, like I seen someone just saying the chat, You know, Tom Thibodeau was supposed to be a defensive coach with the Minnesota.
They didn't really play like a defense.
Now, of course, you know he's got you gotta have the players that got that want to do it too.
You know what I'm saying? So you can't blame it on Tom Thibodeau, eh? So I'm not gonna sit here and just be always the greatest coach in the world.
I wouldn't be mad if you came.
I'd be all right if you came.
Is that why you didn't really quickly? Don't you The reason why Tom Thibodeau was also successful is because look at the organization they want.
They're all on one accord.
You know, I mean, like, when you have a guy like like James Dolan, who is a wild car, you don't know how things gonna go.
One of James don't want signed a player who, you know, he signs Ah, so called star player who doesn't fit Tom Thibodeau's vision.
Right? Guy doesn't play defense, doesn't want to listen, wants to play as he has a big contractor.
That's the thing I'm scared about, because again, Tom Thibodeau play when he's best succeeded.
Everybody was playing on it is a court, and he played the best player Derrick Rose.
So we just gotta be careful because some typical he's a guy like spoke once a sponsor a bit.
He's a guy that says that you need the front office.
You need the you need the owner everybody to be in cream it because again, look, look at situations where disciplinarian cultures to come in and tells a certain guy how to play, but in the cold to be like, Well, I've got favor with the owner, so I don't really don't have to listen to, you know, our degree.
But, uh, Mike Shanahan and the Redskins, You know, I just don't I like to split hairs, but, you know, got everybody's being one. Of course.
No, I get you, man.
I figured everyone definitely has to be on one of court.
Let me see the media. The mark.
Then I'm gonna get down here too.
Uh, Tony, I do want to talk about these point guards, though. Go ahead, Mark.
I, uh, want them before we're going to look Stop it.
The thing would our when people say they didn't play defense in the temples, That's because two of the best players still suck to this day.
Okay? And he only had two years with the Tim boules.
But for him to go to the first year, do some things the second year, get them to the playoffs, and all the reason why Jimmy Butler didn't say is because he was mad because Wickens got the money before he did.
And Jimmy Butler didn't think Wiggins deserve it, which he did it, which is considered a bad contract around the weight right now.
So when people are coming at till Monday with Thompson.
But we do have the place because when I watch the match on the floor, it plays a level of aggression that I think that will match what time typical given for and sent.
If Randall was supposed to not let's talk, Randall's more more expendable than him.
I will get rid of Randall before I'll get rid of that.
That's just get That's just Gamow saying what if No, nobody said that was gonna happen.
That was Justice Guillermo saying, What if that's all I know? I'm saying that it was if I will get rid of random so quick because he and that type of level playing, even all of all I'm saying is that if it's coming from Gamble, I don't think that if I mean Tom Thibodeau's not even around, you wouldn't hear anything like that until Tom Thibodeau was actually hired.
I don't think you know that's Guillermo.
Just speaking hypothetically.
Okay, So what's in that? Stop it.
So here we go. Here we go.
We know that the next priority in the draft is gonna be a point guard of scoring point guard.
That's what the Knicks priority is.
And I know I think Tony Crow wanted to get in on this topic.
So when I get Tony, you're going to jump in there.
But, um, in its priorities point guard, obviously.
Tyreese caliber in the mellow ball.
What do we do? Who you going with it? What's your vision? Listen, Cole.
Anthony, what's your vision? I'm this Three guys know this four.
Note this four point guard, I will consider his draft, But my number one guy, I think I will end up drafting all available, You know, honestly, a lot of people wouldn't bother anything but this kid.
The confidence ability to play point guard.
The bill is the other head.
He has a head on it.
Yet in his brain, he had a brain in his head.
When I watch him play, do you know where to get bored? You know how to run the brake properly.
He's very smart.
A lot of people don't like him because of the the a***en.
I don't care about that.
I care about a player's confidence, what he can and will do when he has someone of money behind him.
And it's come to a little here.
It's gonna be a part for him because yes, confidence could be mattered.
What we will need.
So all the confidence thing when you're playing this Okay, I can't have more point guard.
That's not not that I don't have the confidence.
And with him being in the spotlight that he is already when he calls in New York, he's already sitting well, that that little s****om that will be the more stormy he'll probably get to the next.
That don't faze him.
That won't feed him.
But his ability to play the point guard, the 1,000,000,000 of push the ball, the 1,000,000,000 to get the ball where it needed to be.
Get into shooters. Pockets.
That kid has it all, has it'll? My second guy is that oversees guy.
Uh, Benny Benny.
I've got his last name.
You talk about my number.
It's about killing and hes from from Germany.
No, no, not him.
He's my third guy.
He's my third eye.
But the second guy, who I'm gonna go ask them point guard, is the other kid that I assault.
What overseas team? I think it's Ah, The second was teamed.
Playful overseas TV.
The 6 10 guard it's playing style is similar to like Hell. Turkel.
Oh, the way he plays, where he's a point guard.
Yeah, you remind a lot of ego.
Took a little his skill set, pass, shoot, dribble, rebound, push the push for He's a big 6 10 years, a big 6 10 guard.
And my third guy is the guy that you just saw that you just plain Hayes.
Yes, he's another guy that know how to get the ball out of his hands.
He's another bowl I distribute.
It's another No, no, Another guy.
I don't know how to run the point guards that these three guys to me has the has what I want in my point guard toe.
Allow guys on my team to get better toe allowed to push the tempo.
These are high temple up tempo guys and the young guy that we have, they need to run.
They need to run.
They need to feel like they're going to get the ball when, when their innate one in spots.
Because a lot of my guys rely on point guard play.
Those are my three guys.
When people say he's a scoring guard.
I don't want that.
I don't want that. He's like, six feet.
I don't want a smoke that I've mentioned.
Those are my guys.
All right, let me get around to see what these guys think about Tony before I get into, um the potential drafted point guards I'm intrigued with time to be.
Oh, is our coach what he could possibly do as faras unlocking Dennis Smith Jr.
I see you shaking your head, but you go back to the video we need, you know, a few months ago Oh, our prior to the season started, we re being super optimistic with without team and preparing them Thio.
You know, a couple of teams in the past, you know, I would love to see what tips could do.
That's what Junior I would.
Okay, I'm I'm sorry.
Dennis Smith is gonna be, huh? I'm not opposed to drafting a point guard.
And if he did, I would love Lamell a ball.
But but the point guard position is the hardest.
You cannot expect a rookie point guard to come in and change.
The league is very is very rare.
The program position takes years to develop and become, you know, stuck.
You probably You probably couldn't mean five or 10 people.
I could name five pointers that came in as a rookie and with a star or superstar.
Oh, are anything like that? It takes years to develop a point there.
No, I know you write it. Say it. Say it.
It definitely takes a while to develop those point guard skills, man s.
So, you know, we can't expect the guy to come in and just all of a sudden bam! You know, he said they named the top 10 point guards in the league right now and then tell me how long it took them to become one of the better point guards in the league Embassy.
But Marcus, ain't you see? Well, go ahead, Mark. Glad Mark.
When Chris Paul came in, we ran our proof.
They got to the petals.
Then you will see him.
There was an instant star.
That's why all rich dipped.
Then you had their rolls down into the soil of instant star when he came in.
And then you have Ah, really, I Right now he's the head of the snake.
That team no one caught.
That's another line.
Um, get another point. Gone.
There's one more.
Lord said that Carly Urban, not the urban. Hello.
When Kyrie Irving came out the gate Oh, yeah.
You know, 20 plus 20 plus score.
Five assists, guys when they came out.
So let me tell you something, Lem.
Rondo took Rondo.
Rondo took time, and he wasn't that type of a talent that these five ones when it came out.
No weights, No way.
When you guys came up with the instant star, there was just instance all of the gate instant.
I mean, I mean, I mean, but But the thing is, I mean, I agree with Tony, though, you know, we can't expect a point guard to come into the league and didn't just be an instant, you know, saying an instant star.
You know, as soon as you come into the league only going to get so many of those guys, let me get you a phone, call the number, get the game.
Oh, uh, Nate, real quick.
And then I got to get to the front stoop at 11.
45 ladies and gentlemen 11.
It's probably gonna end up being more like 11.
50 because this is going a little bit longer than I expected.
I'll be doing the front stoop where we're gonna review pop smokes.
Rest in pieces, pop smoke.
I don't know much.
I didn't know a whole lot about the guy, but anyway, you know, you anyone who dies at 20 years old is dying way too young, you know? So, you know, for those who didn't know he was we're gonna take a listen to his album, Meet the Wool Volume two, and we'll talk about a little bit.
Then we got some independent music to listen to.
All right, so let me get to a phone call, and I'm about to get over there called alive with nothing but next.
What's popular? What's going on with you, bro? How you feeling? So, uh, you tell me, man, we're talking about time tippet open.
Talk about point guards.
Where's your head at? With it? I think Tom Thibodeau along.
I just don't think Mark Jackson's gonna mess.
I think that's why he hasn't had a job in 10 years.
Well, since she left Colden state because he had that whole religious endearing thing where he was, You know, he kind of liked wanted everybody on that team vain.
And that's why he got booted out.
So I think Tibbs is a defense is minded guy.
I think we need a point guard.
And what did you do? Only what is in Chicago.
He took care of crows working of the year.
Pretty much built up Jimmy Butler from, Ah, almost a bus.
Who? Jimmy Butler.
You know, I mean, he took Joe Come, Noah, who is okay and made him, You know, where he where he went? Taj Gibson.
He bumped him up.
You know, he built the players, and I mean the whole the whole Minnesota thing.
I think the garbage, I think, and Wiggins were a big part of that because he let Jimmy Butler run that team.
And he had, like, you know, we all heard the famous story where Jimmy Butler took a bunch of bench player and destroyed the starters.
And you gotta you gotta think that Wiggins and talent on that team and they couldn't handle him bench players and look where they've been so far since Tibbs and Jimmy Butler left nowhere.
So I think he's a great coach. Came.
And And the point guard, you drive real quick.
I got to get about quick.
Mellow ball way.
That kid's a pro.
He's been playing pro ball.
He's the only guy who's gonna go in there, and he's not gonna get chic.
You know, Colin isn't good.
He comes from you've got a pedigree, but I don't like me problems, you know, in college, you know? You know, I mean, yeah, and, you know, we're gonna cover all these point guards in a lot of death, But, you know, I know the metal has been a pro, but Frank Aquino was a pro, too, before he came into the league.
Yeah, but pregnant Lacuna wasn't putting up the numbers.
Mellow is putting.
I feel you just messed up 17 17 67.
Now I feel babe, I'm a I'm sorry to cut it short.
I gotta cut it short, but I gotta, um You know, I got to get to this next show.
All right? So I'm gonna get to these guys real quick as ah, Gambone eight.
Tell me your thoughts on the point guard spot.
And then and then we get to the front stoop. Gamma.
I'm coming to you, man.
You want to switch his Heineken? Is ginger beer, okay? I don't know.
I think this guy so maybe it And I thought maybe you took yourself out on a date tonight.
I had a terrible game tonight, man.
Terrible, couldn't it? Tara also haven't played in How many weeks is stupid injuries, men.
But anyway, way we got this.
This charity game has coming up July ready already? It won't be as bad tonight, man. I couldn't.
The wasn't Nick Young.
I didn't show up to the crowd, But I did it.
I had a three where I missed it.
Looks it felt no, you shoot.
You know, when you're off when you know it's just you just want to stop playing when you're perfect for everything.
And you could barely see the ball going to the basket and it clinks like everything was perfect.
You know, it was just a bad night and against team wasn't good So what about the guys that want Halliburton? Halliburton? Halliburton? I don't call Anthony who was what? 6261? Maybe.
Ah, scoring point guard.
And I don't think he's as dynamic as people said.
You know, try to make him out to be much came out from high school, the mobile.
Play you guys, Please, No defense is often seen.
This guy got featured on this team, You know, the whole mix safe.
So hey, wasn't I wish you would have been a cause where you've been challenged a little bit, but again, I don't trust his offense.
I only kept his father like I like his father.
So I'm not really came in people I like to fall anyway. Whatever.
The other guys like Tigers.
Maxie, I'm not really high on.
He's a scoring point guard, but Simon, I think he's kind of slacking off 13 points.
7% from 385% free throw shooting.
But you know, whatever Tyler Harber and give me him then he's still shooting above 3%.
I might be wrong that check up on it.
Who cares but the kid is the kid can play.
His biggest thing is that you know you could run the pickle roll, but he doesn't really shoot a lot off the pick and roll because his his size little set.
But the kid plays a speed pa's intensity.
He plays defense.
Um, you know, really good court vision.
His three point shots of me as it is he's treating 14%.
So give me Tyree's house area and I think has intangibles that him and R J you're gonna have a good little one to do. Our tenant.
Oh, it seems so.
Give me heartburn.
Unless Moto Minto Popcorn Garber See, my man Nate will quit.
And then I hope you guys coming on over to the front stoop man.
Nate Guy? Yeah, man.
Halliburton Watson Tape on him yesterday, Rising up the draft charts 65 Really lanky on which he would kind of beef up a little bit more.
But that'll take time in the n b a, um, pure past.
They're probably one of the best pure passers I've seen outside of John Moran in the college level.
Just can make the pass anywhere on the court.
Yeah, it shocked? A little whack, but so was balls.
So I think it could be changed defensively.
He averages 2.5 steals.
Ah, game for the SEC.
So, um yeah, man, I think he's got the most potential.
Um, there's Nick Mannion from Arizona.
I really have not seen him play.
I'm waiting for the tournament to see who's gonna really ball out.
But Nick Mannion is a guy that a lot of people high on 63 then there's cold Anthony, of course, that could, you know, score out of the gym.
But he's just too small.
In my opinion, um, I'm leaning towards Halliburton, but I'm still worried about all these point guards and there, I mean, for that high of a draft pick.
I don't think any of these point guards are wearing the top three pick.
And don't even get me started on Melo.
I don't want to do with the metal.
I don't want Lamar LaBarre even anywhere near MSG, so yeah, yeah, I got to get on.
I got to get over to the front stoop, but we're but we're gonna have our time when we really cover point guards in the draft in depth.
So I appreciate your time.
I appreciate you guys being here with me, ladies and gentlemen.
And like I said, join me over there on the front stoop right now.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Knicks.
There's 17 and 38 in their in their fifth spot.
When you talk about the draft in their fifth spot, we'll see what's going on with it, man.
Anyway, join me over at the front stoop right now.
Okay? I just put the link in the jet.
All right, We're gonna talk about, uh, we're gonna talk about pop smoke, you know? So we'll have a discussion about that.
We'll listen to the album a little bit when we listen to some independent using.
