Nick's family was popping.
Is your boy the Knicks? Well, they picked up another victim.
Me, ladies and gentlemen, they picked up another victory.
What could we say? It was the Detroit Pistons, but, hey, it picked up a victory.
I'll take you. Ladies and gentlemen, let's get to the game.
Let's break it down a little bit.
Yes, Ladies and gentlemen, the New York Knicks were home.
I think it was like their fifth game in a row as they took all the Detroit Pistons.
And you see right there, Elfrid Payton, go to the basket and lay one.
End the Knicks down 12 8 to the Pistons over picking once again to the Cup.
He lays that one in to make it 12 to 10.
And then you see L pupae in five r J bury the rookie under the basket as the Knicks tied the game up at 22.
Ladies and gentlemen and look, what's the next title game by 22? At this point, it's easy.
Find Mitchell Robinson for the alley oop dunk.
That's probably the dunk of the game to play the game right there.
The Knicks go up 24 to 22 35 seconds left in the first quarter.
The Knicks up 24 22 you see that we play one more time.
So nice you got to show it twice.
That's what open.
That's what your man Clyde Frazier would say.
You know what I'm saying? That's what he would say.
3456789 10 times as you see a puppet and get their Eliot's and Mitchell Robinson Knicks up 27 22.
But then they go cold in the second quarter.
See Mitchell Robinson get the block there.
Get the big block.
Julius Randle grabs the rebound.
Takes the length of the court, finds Elfrid Payton for the lay up left handed layup.
The Knicks went cold in that second quarter, but then they started coming back.
Elfrid Payton kleptomania.
Gets the steal, takes it coast to coast, lays it in.
The Knicks go up 65 61.
Skipped Waterway to the fourth quarter.
The Knicks, up 92 to 82 right here, and I know We missed a lot of the game, but you see the alley oop to Mitch and the next ladies and gentlemen pull away from the Detroit Pistons and get a victory at home after an abysmal, terrible and abysmal game.
The Knicks come home and get a win.
And, uh, what's Hecate? Ladies and gentlemen, we will definitely take away no matter who it comes against, because you just needed for the psyche.
You just need it for the psyche.
You see, I got some stuff on the screen that I don't want a screen yet. There you go.
That's what I want on screen.
We're gonna talk about Kenny Ackerson, as you can see, but Phil is going over the game recap, and they will get into everything else.
The next biggest lead was 14.
The biggest lead for the Pistons was eight, like the Knicks outrebounded the Pistons, 51 of 35.
The next seem to be outrebounded.
Everybody nowadays outrebounded the Pistons 51 35.
Uh, they I only have 15 assist on tonight.
15 assists for the Knicks tonight.
Oh, that's not gonna win you many games.
You'll beat the Pistons, but you're not gonna win many games.
Only getting 15 assists only got 15 assists tonight, 21 for the Pistons, 10 steals for the next eight for the Pistons, five blocks for the next two Philip Pistons and only nine turnovers for the next 11 turnovers for the Pistons, the next 43.
9% from the field.
6% from three and 72% from the free throw line.
The Pistons, with 36.
2% from the field, 28.
9% from three and 68.2%.
But if we throw line, look the next, let's not fool ourselves.
The Knicks didn't like play well and, like, really play good.
Hey, they played the Pistons and they beat the Pistons.
It did enough to beat the Pistons.
The Pistons played worse places.
They played worse than in New York Knicks.
So it is with Nix Nix.
The Knicks pulled away and got a win on tonight.

Bullet played 12 minutes.
He didn't score Damian Dotson and allows the train either One of those guys played this evening.

Jordan McRae had eight points a thon maker.
He had three points on the night.
That's basically the recap it a game.
Ladies and gentlemen, neither team play particularly well.
It was just that the Pistons played worse than the Knicks.
You know, the Pistons played worst in the next.
The Knicks came away with evicted me.
Victory for the Knicks toe.
You know, they're about to go on the road.
So they needed a victim.
Let's get to the guys in the video chat, you know, see what these guys think And see what the guy's talking about.
Obviously, I know what the topic of conversation wants to be tonight.
We're gonna talk about this game first, and then we'll get to that topic undoubtedly.
Okay, get to that topic undoubtedly.
So let me get some of man percent, right? What do we say those two are not gonna work, man.
Gamow, What's going on, man? We're not on the Nets yet, but we've got to get to it way.
I'ma kill the nets.
I know you don't get it.
Let's get to this. We're gonna get to it. Let's talk about the game first.
God may give me a now.
It's like you said, man.
It was basically to terrible teams in which every team came out less terrible than the other was gonna win.
Basically, you saw glimpses of aggression from certain guys.
You know, R J Barely.
I think, like 12 tonight.
Frank had seven, but you saw flashes from those guys where they were aggressive.
So, you know, I mean, look again.
These winds are empty to me, this is all about What are we gonna do to develop for next season? One thing I notice on that I like a lot.
Is that my boy, Mitch Robinson? He's broken up.
Ah, and it doesn't seem like a sloppy bulk up.
It looks like his body started to fill out a little bit more.
Especially like the upper half of his body, which is a great thing you want to be a little bit more powerful.
There's been a lot more.
This is divided.
The smart dumb commented of the night, but on even on the um on the you called easy the ah, the alley Oops, right.
He looks a lot more aggressive.
That makes sense.
I don't know, you know, hopefully get translating to shooting or something like that or something besides just dunking.
But, you know, I think his confidence is starting to build up.
Where's I? He knows what he's good at, and he's not going to shy away from it.
Hopefully works in the shooting of stuff like that, but on defense, you know, I like what I'm seeing from and in fact this bystander fill out.
Maybe some of that that nervous, not nervous for some of that goofy built.
His body starts to kick out.
And, you know, he starts to fill out and and play with a little more balance.
Because again, a lot of times you've seen with the Clippers when you played against a barrel Ah, you know, he got bullied.
Um, my guy was 69 right on and sometimes even down low when he's trying to get the ball is like his body is like is like a like, you know, linking logs that you just, you know, Wait, you know, kind of waving about it doesn't can't really cache of also hope that goes out better for his balance.
Look, it's just a game against a really crappy team.
Um, yeah, it's not much, really.
Yeah. Now you know about Mitchell Robinson.
I think that the Knicks probably taking the approach with Mitchell Robinson where I think even they took the same approach with Frank a while back where, you know, a lot of times during the season, you don't have players lifting weights and doing those things.
They might still have him lifting weights, even during the season, because it's all about looking very, very like, you know.
But it's all about the development, not about what he really what he's gonna produce now.
So if you if you're really trying to help him fill out and you know they might have him still lifting some weights throughout the season, obviously not like you said.
It's gonna be like it's not gonna be crazy because you don't want to risk any kind of injuries, but they may have him still, um, you know, lifting some weights so that he can so that he could grow, You know, at it a quick Corinne.
You know, I'm saying, um, but you know, hell, there's going to be a point where one day it's just gonna be, like home like hell hit a growth spurt, but it won't be up to be out, right? Right.
And the thing about I still want this kid to shoot, and I think that we're doing him someone of a disservice by not making them ultra aggressive and summit because you have nothing to lose.
So you might so work on on getting that all out.
Now, you know, while the seasons, you know, basically nothing.
You know, there's not Honestly, I was really nothing lose out.
You know, I like what I saw him. R.
J um, your boy knocks.
Uh um, like I said, that's a con game.
I thought was a mirage.
I think the kidneys Jean Pierre Badly.
Um, he needs to get his confidence up.
Hey, needs to find out what? How he can affect the game without scoring.
I swear I swear on my life.
Once he gets that down pack is gonna get a lot more.
Ah, confidence, Because again, right now, he thinks that, like his only value is through scoring is like a pretty chick who thinks the only guys do look in Crete and she gets in the thirties forties and she realized, Oh, crap, guys, you don't really want to go out with me for a long term because you're not a cook.
Show notto have conversation should not all the little things that make people better.
So I mean, not say women should cook a good you know what I mean? But the thing is, women's is women.
Don't see it swimming tonight.
Be careful, but they probably know what this is.
You You want autumn to girls who got men right now and they're happy and secure, and a man ain't going out that, you know, they all could cook.
For the most part, I've never met a woman where is like Oh, yeah, I got a man and she can't Hey, must be cheating that anyway, back to Knox.
Knox needs to find a way because it seems like every.
Even when somebody goes for rebounds, he's going for loose balls.
It's almost like the nerves in him, like the moment is too big for him because all you could think in his head is to shoot the other night.
I want to comment about, Forgot to.
We'll even look it.
It's free, throws him.
I don't know what his percentage was last year, but it's like even he shoots the ball on a free throws.
Like what? Klaus says.
It's almost like he's a minute like he doesn't like that.
Not that notch natural flow we saw, especially late in the season last season.
It's like he doesn't he doesn't have any confidence whatsoever in his game.
And so it's like it's like what you call it.
Ah, a self fulfilling prophecy, right? It's like this.
He's like, I'm gonna miss, I'm gonna mess up and we get sick.
He messes up and on Lee, that's actually saving them.
Funny enough is his talent, because there's some threes I saw him take.
Not tonight, per se, but the the other games.
I forgot to mention where I'm looking at it.
It's a bad three in terms of the timing in terms of the space between him and a defender, but it goes in.
So I mean, that goes to show you.
And, like last chef forgot what the percentage of he's not like 40% from when I forgot how many feet of guy was in his face last year.
But it was like an impressive percentage was like, Oh, crap, he can shoot with a person in his face So it means you have talent, but everything else about you, you're all over the place.
So I would love to see him go to Julie.
We need to see guys like, Ah, guys like Lamar, Peter's come up.
If that's the case, I just don't wanna Julie works At this point, I don't think he's going to the G G.
I mean, they could just assign him to the GT, But at this point, I don't see that he's going to the D League.
I don't think he's gonna go to the J League any time this season.
Um, you know, so you know, he's he's basically gonna be here.
He had seven points tonight.
It was three for six from the field.
He played 19 minutes, You know? Yeah.
Two blocks on the night, all in the first.
Maybe the first quarter.
I think. I think he had him in the first quarter.
He had seven points.
He's a plus one forever.
That means one for two from +336 Garfield go, um, forebears Bows, one turnover, two blocks, one steal, two rebounds, 19 minutes.
And, of course straight.
Why would cheer play tonight? Um, now I say we need him, but, you know, again, traer.
Just I have given up on I mean, you know, look, I mean, for the most part, what we've seen tonight is what's gonna happen the remainder of the season.
The Knicks improved their record to 20 and 44 are so that three games above what they did last season, they have.
What was that? 64 games they have.
What's that? 18 games left to the season except 18 games left to the season.
How many wins can they get in those 18 games? It depends on when we play again.
We are against Maybe that the bottom 50.
I mean, well, I don't know because the mix could show up one night.
And the next night we get this right.
We could show tonight against the Pacers or something like that.
Some team were for some reason we always play well or we beat the next night.
We lose to like Chicago, so I don't I don't know what the schedule is, You know, it's it would be stupid for me to say and try to make a an assumption, But again is based on a It's really based on how veterans play because, you know, I see that, um, I see that what's her name just wants to play.
Um, I just want to play.
He's playing heavy on the veterans, right? Dodge is not really playing triggers.
I'm replaying these guys.
I can't see being on team more than poor descendants of So give it to him.
It's what? I don't know.
I don't know. It depends on how these guys show up.
How do you feel? Hi.
They shared the ball one day.
I do like I do like r J now.
Not I like him now.
I like him with the ball, His hand up, up top.
When you said that high pick and roll.
Um, when he's coming down up, seemingly good passes, some guys that kind of botched the past, stuff like that.
But you know, he's being ultra aggressive once it gets in that lane, whether be your decision making those is attempting to execute the lay up or, you know, float or some like that.
So, you know, I like what I'm seeing from R.
I just wish that tree could play with him. But, you know, R J.
Mitch, you know, you guys are in a shot, knocks.
I mean, it is what it is.
You know, let me get to Isaiah, and then we'll take a look at that.
Um, we'll take a look at the schedule, what the upcoming schedule, and see what it looks like.
Isaiah, What's going on, man? Break it down from where it was going on.
So I got the headphones.
Oh, good, good. Good initiated.
Yeah, man, I can't wait to kill them.
That's tonight because you know, let's talk about the Knicks.
Let's talk about the next.
Let's talk about the Knicks.
You know, uh, Gimble said, This is too bad.
Teams one of this didn't play it better the other ones? Um, yeah.
You know what I've noticed? Don't send that kind of weird right that I was thinking to myself, I swear are buried.
He has the worst situation out of the top three were keys just because of the lack of spacing in his.
When he plays the game when he's in the game like Mike Miller, rotation sometimes come to R. J.
Managed so weird because it's like he has overpaying Randall, Taj and I God will starts, man.
There's no space and put a kid.
It gets frustrating watching them.
Sometimes he has no space.
Well, I mean, but, you know, that's something that we kind of knew from the beginning of the season, that there wasn't gonna be way started talking about the roster and who was gonna be the starters.
We kind of knew that there wasn't gonna be much space.
Now, during the floor is one of the reasons why I get my game by game over.
Guillermo, what I was saying.
Don't be surprised if Wayne Ellington started right, because he could space the floor and you needed someone to space the floor.
Uh, you know, or body 40 said was one of the reasons why I say Don't be surprised if Bobby Portis started at center because he could space the floor.
You know, I'm saying, and you know, I got no.
Mitch has to start.
He has to start.
He has to be the starter.
He doesn't need to start is not gonna develop.
But, you know, it was one of the reasons why I thought that, You know, Bobby Portis could start or ties Gibson because of that spacing.
And still, we have no spacing.
You know, Bobby Portis come in and shoot the ball the way that we expected him to shoot last year with the Washington Wizards. He shot 39%.
I think he's at 35 or 36% this year.
So he wasn't shooting the ball that way.
I can't wait to trade Julius Randle to the Charlotte Hornets for, like, five second round us.
I can't wait to keep waiting because it's not happening.
Oh, no, I'm telling Michael he loves his power forward.
She's gonna get You know what I'm telling you? I'm telling you, it's probably not Listen, it is probably not gonna happen if they couldn't string if they're gonna trade Julius Randall is not gonna be this year to be the following year.
I'm saying next year doing, check that line.
We're gonna put it on the wall right now, saying it won't be something.
You'll be weirdo trade deadline, is it? Trust me, it wouldn't be no five second rounders.
We have. That's that's That's just dumb.
I'm just joking, but Yeah, man, um, I like I like the aggressiveness from Frank tonight.
I like the aggressiveness with Frank R.
You know, like that Mitchell Robinson.
You know, my son gave me all the ways, um, played great.
You know, the young kids play great, man.
This, you know, it's like, again, this is just a bad This is Livia bad game, and it's one team played force.
So you know, of course.
And we knew that he knew that you knew that.
You know? So the knicks had 18 games left man to have 18 games left to the season.
And you know, for the most part, you know, the who knows what we're going to get out of the season.
The only way that you're gonna really get anything out of this season is if I think Light said it not too long ago.
The only way you're gonna get anything out of this season is if there's some guys on this team that you really end up keeping and become some long term players.
No, I'm saying I mean, you know, we got a better win total than we had last season, and we'll probably I'm thinking we'll probably end up with maybe 24 winds or something like that.
You know that seven wins better than last season.
At least I'm hoping we can end up with 24 wins, seven wins better in the last season.
So the only way that really means anything is if you keep a core group of players.
If you have a core group of players that you say, Okay, you know, these would be some guys that we use going forward now if it ends up like last season, where a bunch of guys you know, you signed a bunch of guys and in all those guys none of those guys come back, you know, and you trade away players, then you know the season was just nothing.
I think this season was nothing.
Because, you know, one of the things you know, the one of the ideas with this season is that you're trying to find some guys that are gonna, you know, stick with the team.
You know, you find out what it is you want to do.
You know what? Your your your philosophy and style of players.
And if you got some guys that fit that and they stay, then you know you won seven more games.
Maybe you made some progress, you know? I mean, the other thing is, with the change in regime, you don't know.
You know what kind of what the idea of play is gonna be? The style of player, what the philosophy is gonna be.
So you don't know if you made any any kind of progress at all.
Even if you've got seven more wins, you have no idea what you've done this season.
But for the sake of these 18 games and Rob, the nick just joined us.
We'll take a look at the upcoming schedule the remainder of the 18 games in, you know, look at it and see if if there's any wins their force.
You know, just I mean, at this point in the season, we played almost everybody, I guess.
I don't know if there's a team that we haven't plead.
So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna gamble.
I'm gonna, um You chew.
All right, I'm gonna get you a muted and get ah, as a un muted, and we're gonna go through this list of games.
Can you hear me? Yeah.
You all right? Ah.
And, uh and then I'm gonna get Rob after we go to this distant games.
All right, So here's the list of games that we got coming up for the foreseeable future.
The remaining 18 games you got the Washington Wizards and Washington Wizards.
They you know, they they're in the name seed right now, fighting for playoff spot there about five and 1/2 games behind the Orlando Magic.
I really don't see the Washington Wizards getting that spot.
I think the group that's up in there now those eight teams right now the top eight teams are Milwaukee surrounding Boston, Miami, Indiana, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, In Orlando.
I don't see anybody leapfrog and getting into that Final Eight.
You know, I think that will be the playoff that, you know, maybe some.
There'll be some seeding that switches around.
Maybe Philadelphia ends up being the fifth seed in Indiana to succeed.
Maybe the Nets end up being a seed in Orlando.
Ends up being a seven seed, something like that.
But for the most part, it's gonna be those eight teams there.
I don't see Washington getting in, but anyway, we played a wizard's on Tuesday.
We win it or lose it, uh, way might lose it.
It probably is. Bradley built.
Still got that? Got that kid birds, hands or whatever? Yeah, Bradley Bills playing Brotons is playing.
You know, Time's a shooter.
Wait, What is this? Like we talked about the Pacers playing this well, Not like we're winning team versus Like, we should be winning.
I automatically against the Wizards, but they play a swell to men like, uh, they could score the basketball.
That's the thing we can't you know.
They can really light up when you want to.
You know what? You know what? I'm gonna I'm gonna say because that's a back to back we're gonna lose that game.
You said we're gonna lose, or that's the front front end of a back to back.
I think the Knicks are gonna surprises in Atlanta.
So Ah, Lin, See things? Eso way.
Otto, are we counting from the wizard recount from Atlanta? We'll count from the Wizard.
So we got the Wizards, and then we have Atlanta.
My been, um, the wizard scare me in terms.
Just in terms of the I mean, can we win and lose? Right now, I just care about development, but in terms of whether we win or not, because I had that Kimber tans and they just they they played the Knicks.
Well, in terms of scoring, um, and they also had the other the other do the black do.
Say, Mom, who killed us the game that we we won, but we almost lost.
He was hitting threes.
Um, young young dude, um, remember who I'm talking about.
Admiral Scofield Now.
It's not school field.
Yeah, they They got young talent.
I just wouldn't put it past him.
The beaters and this.
This still fighting, you say nine.
Spot five games Are there five games out of that nine spot? There's still fighting for playoffs.
But I You know, I think the Wizards are probably going to be this because they're not gonna give up.
Look, they have nothing to lose, right? And everything.
The game, they're not gonna and especially with you and Lucy.
Now, I got practice, so I'm not going to the game.
I got practice Tuesday night.
First air, you practice, so I'm not going to the game, all right? And then we got the Hawks after that.
Remember last time game? Last time the game went into, What? Double overtime.
Triple double? Um um, Trey Young dropped 41 on us, you know, So we'll see.
We'll see how that goes.
Trey Young is the point where he started to get his his started.
I would say a superstar talent, but the game is slowed down tremendously for him, like he hears me.
And the thing about that we don't wait.
We haven't even in the regular season.
We don't play dumb Like what we really should be.
Ah, double teaming up top and just harass him.
Stop him from I know he could split the defense up like that.
But you want to make it as uncomfortable for him, disallowing from used in any of the pick and roll to create any space in the mid range, which he loves using.
Yes, Can he be guys again? That's a guy who's young is not superstar.
Ah, level yet, right? And he's not even.
I don't think he's jobber even though he's not tolerance.
And how did play, right? He's not going to sit there.
Crazy blazes BB just quick as hell.
And he's smart with the ball, Uh, when he's playing one on one, So I think we could beat them.
I wouldn't put it past something for them to be this either.
But I think we have a better chance against them than we do against the Wizards.
Because, I mean, it seems what John Collins, who just came back, I would say, just came back.
Um, Vince Carter, by the way it was and he had a funny thing with Jonah, and I didn't want him across when you found him, But yeah, those guys, I can't really think of who else is on the on the Hawk, so I mean, yeah, I could see his winning that game.
Hopefully, hopefully we can win that game.
We got the Miami Heat in these three games all of more ways.
So we go to Washington and landed them down to Florida.
Uh, then we come back home and play the Charlotte Hornets s.
So you got the Miami Heat Friday the 13th as probably a law.
So maybe we get a win against the Hawks.
Probably a loss against Miami.
Who played the Hornets? We haven't had any luck against the Hornets.
We played some close games, but we couldn't be.
We can't beat him.
So maybe we get a win on.
Maybe we get a win this time at home.
All right, I'll give us the winds to that.
I'm gonna give us a win for that.
We play some tight.
It's the Hornets.
We haven't been able to pull one out.
You know, I think we might be motivated to pull one out against the Hornets.
Didn't Grimm have a bad game against us? That is.
Ah, the second game.
Well, I'm not bad, but it wasn't as prolific as the 1st 1 Uh, I'm not sure I mean, almost gonna like her.
And yeah, I'm not sure I have to.
I think we'll be going is, though I think we'll be going.
That's uh and then after the Hornets, we go away.
I give us two wins after the horns, We go where we play the Celtics.
I think we lose to the Celtics at home.
First, the Warriors under listen quick.
Uh, the Celtics.
I have not having clinched yet, but I therefore instead of 21.
I mean, what I mean is that, like, they probably just want to get out the way as quick as possible and then rest somebody up guys and play them sporadically before the playoffs, even though they do have a bunch of young dudes.
But, you know, a team like the Knicks, they probably just gonna come out, mashes and then get over done with because you know they don't want to waste time again.
Also, smart teams, which I think the Celtics are, they're gonna want to get some of the younger guys.
Some play a lot of play minutes before the players, right, Get them, you know, situated in grain inside the offense um, so, yeah, they got a pie just coming.
What was just So you gotta get close to the Clinton.
Well, we'll be playing in Boston, So okay, And then we played Golden State at home, and the 19 is the 1970 championship celebration.
Steph Curry probably be playing because he's he came back, all right? I didn't I didn't see the game or anything like that or check anything out, but they'll probably be playing, so you will probably lose that game.
Then we play the way that game way.
Play the Clippers at home.
We play tomorrow at home.
That's too long.
Right? Then we play away at New Orleans March 27th probably a loss.
Then we go to Chicago.
Then we go to Memphis.
I don't I don't know.
And then we play that we play at home first in Minnesota Timberwolves and we play at home was to Miami Heat.
We play at home with the Orlando Magic away.
I mean, we play a lot of playoff teams away at the Thunder away at the Raptor.
Maybe we'll beat the Pistons on April 14th and then we got the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Maybe we maybe we could get a win versus Timberwolves.
Uh, another wind burst. Detroit.
Okay, maybe four wings.
I don't want to be the Grizzlies.
This so they could talk about my son R J a little bit.
Don't want to be the greatest and lo a semi told you before, man Long, we get 25 wins. I'm good.
It might be hard.
It must be already.
Evening incident might be hard to even get to that.
But I'm not saying I'm not trying to change people's minds.
Like why? Why do we care about the winds? Like like we should care about whether guys, we're not making the playoffs and it is not.
There's no succession of coaches within the past two years, so just have a bunch of clothes get fire.
You have a coach is gonna get fired again.
So it's like we're we're in these winds counting towards, you know? I mean, if we don't individual Well, so you say that I understand what you're saying, right? But I'll say this when you if you look four years from now on, let's say, Let's say that the Knicks won 17 game.
Well, not say they won 17 games last year.
Let's say that they want 24 games this year and then let's say next year they won 33 then the season.
After that, they're 1 42 people looking say OK, they climbed.
As they continue the ad talent, they continue to the record, continue to get better.
They grew their developed from a boom, the hair it sets him.
You usually get that when you have coaches the same coach.
You don't have the same coach.
It's it's hard unless you drop the support of talent because you also remember when those guys move up in winds, right? They're moving up with the same guys that with that same system or again, And that's what old around right, but is.
But what if What if? I mean, obviously we're talking about it now because we had a horrible season and we've had all this drama going on this season, right? But what if and and it's totally possible you have argued buried.
You have Mitchell Robinson, right? Let's say frankly, Latina Kevin knocks stuck around and maybe Julius Randle. Bobby Portis.
Let's just take one of those guys and they stuck around.
So then you had four or five guys and then you added a draft pick next year to draft picks next year, right? And then, you know, And then So then you had a nucleus there.
Ah, group there.
You had a group there.
And then maybe you added another.
That following you added another draft pick.
Oh, you added a player from free agency or whatever happened and you did keep some guys.
I mean, the only way to me that this if they that it builds, is if they keep some guys, they signed something like last year.
They signed a bunch of guys.
None of those guys even came back.
The only guys that came back or the guys that they had already drafted.
Frank Miller, keen of Kevin knocks Mitchell Robinson.
Alonso treated right.
They mean Dotson.
Those guys came back.
The guys that they signed, all of those guys, none of them even came back.
Right? So if they if they end up keeping a guy or two and they actually become part off what you do, you know later on in the future, 2 to 3 years from now, you could say OK, well, it was part of the process.
It's, um that's a lot of ifs.
Let me if that's a lot of for Team that doesn't even know what that is.
Don't have GM instruction play.
They just got their president.
And we're talking about If if if, if this is for literally what else? He does not build a proper foundation for the bullet.
So So you're telling me if they don't if they end up keeping If you telling me that it's not possible that one or two guys and a sign don't stick around, anything is possible, What I'm saying is, but what I'm saying is this if they keep two guys that they signed this season, that becomes part of the team going forward, which is fully possible.
Plus, our Seabury does anything.
Eddie, how probable is it given our team that it is possible possible aliens might exist? How? Probably see what I'm saying is, but they But if you added to the talent pool, you don't think they no, no, nobody nobody that they signed this year is going to stay with the team, going forward and say, No, no, but see what you're doing? Sam, is that you counting one of your contingency one of your if statements and insane? Well, no, we can't have a guy was talented that we signed and still here.
And none of the rest of what you said comes true.
The way that even just saying that so many ifs.
At the beginning of the season, we knew that there were so many.
It's all I'm saying is you have seen what you call it.
Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, listen.
What I'm saying, all I'm saying is, if you keep a player or two, right, you keep a player or two.
That doesn't count as any progress is adding to your talent pool.
Semi, we go into next season and we and no one wants to come to the Knicks, and those guys are still straggling around and no one signed them.
And they're really a last resort.
That's not progress.
That's desperation because you got a chick just cause you got a new chick don't mean that was a chick that you wanted.
It could have been a chick from the club.
Everybody goes home at night.
Just you go out with her.
That's not the tricky one, so I mean, that's kind of disagree.
I think if you add it to your talent pool and you legitimately legit, it merely added to your talent pool.
Maybe you made some progress.
I mean, I think that that means a lot because you're trying to end your trying to add to your talent pool.
Your statements are all over the place.
If we add to our town pool way.
Keep guys from this year, right? Because no one else one of them, and no one to come to Nick's.
We don't we can't sign a Brennan Ingram.
We can't do the crisp, crisp poultry, and none of these other guys want to come to tea.
But you're assuming No, no, no.
You're assuming that what I'm saying is you leech, I said, If you legitimately say this is a guy that I'm keeping right, I mean you could cause you're saying it's just like I'm saying, If no, that's all you can do, it's a It's a solemn saying is All I'm saying is you had a guy on your team that you signed He said, This is a guy that legitimately I think I can keep going forward, right? And you keep this guy going forward.
You know, it is Leon rolls.
Whoever says, you know what I like Wayne Allen said, Maybe he does. I don't know.
Or I like Bobby Portis.
I'm going to keep Bobby Portis because I see that I can use Bobby Portis, you know? Then you added to your talent pool.
He may not even know ee thes guys.
One of those guys don't pay not to be anything.
And we made a bad mistake.
And what and what if we don't keep him and go off someplace else and do well? And you say, I'm gonna wait? Wayne Ellington is gonna go.
Some of the places seem a championship team pretending What? No, no, no, you said I'm saying what I'm saying.
You're saying What is? What is it? What? You let Bob reporters go? Situation next? You are some I'm So what you're saying about the Knicks? Hypothetically, we're sitting here talking about Wait a minute.
We're talking just sends are really empty, bro.
I'm not trying to validate wins.
I'm not trying to validate wins.
All I'm saying is e I mean, you go looking way, have those winds, and they count to something in the future and blah, blah, blah.
You create this hypothetical situation, which is possible you're validating that these winds can mean something.
And I don't know.
I mean, they could they could, because you don't think that winning is different because you don't think that they mean it because you don't think that they need an improbable okay, Simple like this for the past two years.
Do you think that scenario is probable? How probable? From 100%.
How probable is just probable is it that they take another step next season and see what you can I ask? You know, because No, no, let me talk.
Let me talk. Let me talk.
What I'm saying is, how probable is it that they keep a couple players, add more players next season and have a better record? I think it's probable.
I think it's very probable.
I think it's very problem.
I believe next season they will probably, you know, add a few players here in there get up to 30 wins, get up to 31 wins right after keeping a few players.
Yes, I do think it's probable, you know? I mean, we all look at it in a vacuum because they suck, right? But yes, I think it's probable that they keep a couple of players.
Add new players next season.
Added draft pick, maybe add, you know, another.
Uh, you know, maybe maybe they make a trade and bring in another player and they get 30 wings right or 31 wins and then the season after that, maybe add another man.
In fact, they're gonna add to draft pigs, maybe add another draft pick.
Maybe they got some more these players and add more wins to it.
That is how you build.
I didn't say that's not my asama contention at all.
I'm saying how because you told about these winds and I'm saying that we're winning with a team where you have a coach who's winning to build up his resume because he probably knows he's gone right.
We have a team and you talk about draft picks were literally not playing one of our best draft picks and I don't know how many years because of whatever reason.
And whenever he's on the court, he produces right, So that's again.
We don't have the coach.
We have players who are on the team or talented who aren't getting playing time.
We haven't seen that just hired way.
We have agreed to disagree.
We will release it.
This is a scenario that you talked about when you told about these winds and that we might look back on and say they were building something.
Who is they? The only day you can use that's been there this whole time is James Dolan.
And honestly, I don't know the way he's doing.
We will agree to disagree on.
This is very improbable that looking at, I'm a look back at these women say old, that was probably is it? Probably There's a percentage of it by I'm going the 50 lesser than 50% because I need to see what Leon Rose can do.
This is a guy who's been aging, has never He's never let a team he's ever higher, g m's or whatever.
He is an agent, high level agent.
God bless him raise an agent.
So all this we're going into the unknown and we're talking about I built for next year, you know, would be convincing me that way.
You just you you literally just said that before we even started this conversation about building for next year.
You literally just said that All I'm saying waited.
This is my word, not twisting your words.
You say wait up when we started the conversation.
So we gotta build for next year clarify what I say.
Good bye, I said nice.
And I simply said that I said individually, because that's the only thing we can take that I see Arjun.
If I see guys working out kinks that that literally if Mitchell obscene, start shooting the ball.
Starts showing a lot more consistently if Frank was start to use the dribble drive and start being aggressive on that individually, that's the only way I said.
That's the only way you can see us developing because we're not developing scheme wise team or playing with.
I'm not saying that we don't play young guys, but we're not playing.
Career change should be out there more than some of these other guys like we're not putting Linus was like, Okay, even if we lose, those are the guys that were most likely gonna be here next year, right? That's what I said with developing.
There is No, there's no consistency with this team for the past two years outside of Dole.
And I can say, All right, it's like this when you saw guys like actions.
I know what? I'm not going to go back.
So I'm just using example when he was with the nets, or was it three years? Whatever.
You saw them slowly developing in that.
That last year they had with the engine Russell, you saw? Okay, now I know I know everything that you're saying.
I get everything that you're saying.
I get it, I get it.
I understand it.
We're going to agree to disagree, because I do believe that you can.
I do believe that you can, even though you may not have a full system.
But if you still are adding pieces right and you may, you may have a new coats.
This is that in this now, But you have ah group of players that you kept, then you add and you made some progress.
That's the way I feel about it.
You may not know what that fully is.
And maybe Leon Rose decides that there's two or three players that he could keep then, e I believe you made some progress.
We'll agree to disagree.
Let me get to a phone call calling.
Hey, what's up? What's going on with you, man? Hey, my more What's going on, man? I wasn't you guys ****ing, man, that's all.
You could do it when you talk about the Knicks.
That's all you could do.
We talk about the knees, you're gonna fuss.
What else you gonna do? You can't celebrate wins that often.
Can't even celebrate this win tonight because it's too bad teams.
So you're gonna fuss.
Gotta have some entertainment somewhere sometime.
What? Go ahead, man.
No, I think, uh, I think I was with the team you need.
I just thought like I just don't I don't understand why people don't like it.
Get that tanking isn't gonna win.
I don't think he's talking about tanking.
Yeah, I don't think he's talking about tanking.
No, I think he's just talking about.
I think he's just saying that he doesn't I don't think he's talking about tanking this season.
I think he's just saying that the winds and whether or not we go from 20 you know, ah, go to 24 wins, it doesn't mean anything, you know? I mean, I just disagree, too.
May winning always means something to me.
That's just how I am winning.
I don't I don't get Listen, I've been in tournaments where, you know, it's the last game of the season and none of my players are coming back.
Three players, four players coming back, and it's the last tournament we've been eliminated and I want to win that last game because it means something.
The players that I have coming back, it means something to them and it helps them become better.
You never know when something is gonna click with a player.
It means something today made.
It means something to me when it always means something to me. But go ahead.
No, I totally agree.
I mean, I like what I'm like.
I like what I'm seeing, but the continuity we're seeing are young.
You know, the young guys that are playing.
I know true not playing doctors, not playing as much.
But I'm seeing a little bit more out of our jam being crank and r J build a little chemistry. I'm being Mitch.
I'm seeing Mitch start to step up and be a defensive anchor.
I mean, he's out there, not where you want you to be.
He's anchoring the defense.
I mean, I like I like I kind of life where we're at.
I mean, we're gonna We're gonna keep players were not gonna **** the whole roster.
I mean, what are you gonna get for Julius Randle as the trade that you're not getting anything at the draft free agency? So you're stuck with him.
I want to keep cause Gibson, and, you know, depending on what we do in the draft, I think you should keep out for Dayton because I just don't think Frank is the point guard.
And honestly, I just don't think r J R J is a shooting guard.
I think you should move them both down, move R J to the small forward, move Frank to the the shooting guard and get yourself a solid point guard, and I mean I mean, have Alfred is your backup.
Or if it's a young guy, you know, let him fight for the position, you know? I mean, I do.
I just don't want to see us lose the next 18 games, and then next door we're gonna hear is all We're praying for the draft and all the Knicks.
Oh, we're getting We're getting We're getting the mellow we're getting after the Edwards doing this.
We're doing that.
And then Leon Rose is gonna come And you know, partner, he's like Moses and bring us I don't want to hear any of that stuff this year.
We did that last summer.
We didn't get by on, you know, it's like I just want to see this team go out, win more games than Fizdale one in his year in 20 games.
Mike Miller can go out and, you know, and then so be a little continuity between these young guys because we're going to keep some room.
It just doesn't make sense to strip the team when you just builds up all these young guys and we're gonna have three new young guys on the team It's like, I guess that was my opinion on that.
I mean, you know, everyone's got the opinion.
You know what? We agreed to disagree.
Um, but I do think, you know, there's gonna be some guys that have kept from this team.
There's gonna be some guys that I let go to because, you know, there's there's gonna be some guys that have really let go because they're probably going to try to free up, free up some space.
Listen, they may be looking at China.
Bring in Chris Paul.
If they bring in Chris Paul, right? If they bring in Chris Paul, they're gonna have the free of $44 million.
$41 million? Yeah.
Actually, I was listening to the show last time.
I tried to call him What, you guys were you guys.
We're going about the Chris Paul thing, I think.
I mean, we couldn't We couldn't do it before the ah, like, you know, when we goto the draft lottery, we're gonna know what pick we are.
And if we're not in the LEM Elo Oh, you know, we don't get the top five pick top six pits.
You know, we're not gonna get one of these top quite point guards.
Why not get Chris Paul? You can get rid of them.
You know, you could.
That's why you have all these guys we just signed to these one on one because we can get rid of him on draft night.
You can go and get a, you know, maybe because they're gonna want because okay, season.
I want to get him off those books.
They're over the cap.
They're not gonna want to pay that luxury.
Why not bring him in two years? You help him with Frank? You gonna keep Frank? So you let you let him So frank how to lead? So whoever we draft out of lead, let those could be a leader and humble, You know, a couple of years he rides off in the sunset Player, coach, You know, you might, you know, maybe bring him in the coaching.
Oh, I expect from the next Leon Rose knows him.
I mean, it seems like a win win.
Now we'll see what we're gonna do better.
I don't know what we'll see, man.
Hey, I appreciate your call, bro. I'm appreciates.
Call you very much.
I have a good one, man.
Have a good one ever going.
Oh, call the young love another.
But Nick's what's popping? Hello.
It was going on, man.
I feel that brought a lot of noise in the background.
It's hard to hear you lot of stuff going on in the background.
Yeah, I'm sorry about that.
You know what's going on with that? Well, calling me because, you know, I've been, you know, Alison, sometime I'll call in, but anybody get down on next must think with what that is, everybody was willing to give frank the time that he needed to come into the play that you needed to come into Why you're not willing to give.
Not that same that same energy we're not willing to give him, doctor.
At same time, the second visit in second year.
You know, saying what people don't seem to realize them is that when you when you start at one point and then they make you come back as a young player, that makes you that you that makes you rules that country that you need to keep striving.
Now I feel you. I mean one.
I think people weren't really that patient.
Wait, wait, Frank.
I think people, you know, just like just like, um, Kevin knocks people first year before even touched the garden floor.
People were calling.
You know, Frank is a bust.
He didn't see that before, even touched the floor.
You know, people just now, this year.
And there's still a lot of people that want you don't think that they should trade, Frank, But this Ah, you know, I agree with you.
I think you know, we gotta be patient.
I think that, um I mean, I do think that he could, you know, playing for the plane in the G league, you know, could help him out.
I don't think that, you know, to me, that doesn't mean that you're getting rid of him.
It just means, you know, that's part of his development process.
You know the meaning.
Just like you have a key down there and you kill in the D League.
You need to sit in Kevin down there to get some.
I tore it up back then, but they should have said Frank Danson and beauty to get some confidence.
Nothing is wrong. We're going to delay.
Get some confidence.
You looking all know what you looking at So many things this year got D League players.
That's playing very well.
Miami from, for instance, they got a bunch of the league players there that is doing real good way.
Just need to develop out the young players that so get them, get them the confidence back.
Almost a confidence Get back up when you come back next year, baby playing better now I feel you.
I feel I think, I think, like, well, frankly, Latina.
I never really wanted him to go to the D League because I always felt like he could defend an MBA, you know? So you know, you know to me that to me, that's always the comment.
That's the bottom line.
If you could defend your position, then you can stay in play.
The offensive side could come you.
To me, it all comes down to Can you defend your position, not accept a hard time defending his position and, you know, defensively he loses.
You know he's working, He's trying to.
He's working toward he's getting better.
You know me, Yeah, let's get a little better defensively still have some defensive lapses where you know you let somebody cut back door.
It's not, but he's doing better playing one on one, defended one on one.
Um, you know, he's gotta work on those rotations.
Gotta work on, you know, keeping your eye on your man and the ball at the same time.
Like some of those type of things.
So that's my thing.
Why? Because someone asked me before.
Well, how come? What? Frank Miller? Kina.
You didn't want him to go to the G d.
But you want not to go to the genie.
What? Frankie could defend his position, and I think that's no.
That's That's everything right there.
I'm saying he could defend his position.
You're right about that, you know? So, defender, what is this ****? But there's any not done it.
So you can learn better defense and get that confidence back up.
Then you know I'm I'm for it.
I'm not ready to give up on, you know, I'm saying a second year player number.
I don't think that we have out way true friends in New York.
We should we should be.
We should be willing to give him the time that you that you said that You said in chapter before it takes people 4 to 5 years in order to find out who they are.
And I'm saying not everybody, not everybody to come the league and just become that That star overnight.
Something with a little bit.
A little bit longer.
Now you write about that.
We'll see what's gonna happen with a man.
Um, you know, hopefully he can have a good summer.
And I don't know if he's gonna play summer league and not, you know, but he's gotta play some kind of ball this summer, so we'll see what's up.
Hey, I appreciate the call, bro.
I'm a chat base.
I ladies and gentlemen, now let's get to Let's get to the get down.
Kenny, aka soon was fired while he wasn't fired, him and the new the New Jersey, the Brooklyn Nets decided that they were going to whoever part ways.
All right, I'm coming back to you guys now, and I think I've been catching.
This is home coursing all over Carson all over the joint.
She just said, uh, see, You see that? I think he did it on purpose.
He just say, Hey, just said he's coming back to us.
He said he's coming back to us, you know? But, you know, you have that Southern take your time draw.
So I don't know what we're gonna talk about.
Look, he said he said, Oh, it's coming back to us.
So he knew I was coming back.
I didn't know you were gonna come in at that instant.
You have to get warmed up.
You Sometimes you take a look.
So I was just, you know, you caught me off guard.
But now I know there has.
The show goes on, you're quicker.
So I watch out for next time I apologize.
Eso were This is the Bible, right? It's just It's just the s word this time.
It's just that this time it's just the s word anyway.
So Kenny Atkinson, he's free them.
The nets and him parted ways.
Who? You said that you fire him, Sam.
Not that they parted ways.
I just read that.
They parted ways.
I don't know what happened.
You know what it is.
Him and I said this at the beginning of the season, right with this stupid the next team.
Katie and Kyrie.
They do not want to play to a system unless it's an overwhelming system.
Like, say, the Golden State Warriors would 1/2 Toby because of players already.
Go look at that team. Sim.
What few things I notice for Kenny, ****stan.
When whoever is the, um, the ball handler, he creates opportunities by using a high pick and roll right? He has a guy in Jack Allen who could really only finished **** cigarettes up, but he used him so effectively.
That's why D'Angelo Russell was so effective last year.
And this was Jack.
Alice said that Tired could do.
Amazing is a bowl, but D'Angelo Russell gets everybody involved in the offense.
That's all of that, that's all. Acting.
Simba is really D'Angelo Russell now.
I mean, I know I think I heard well, he's with symbols.
But as if he turn a corner, he came to alter great play with outside of system, even by one of him, because I still think he's talented.
Kenny Atkinson had that offense flowing.
So to me, Kenny.
Accident Consider yet.
Katie and Kyrie, Brooklyn Nets are gonna be regretting that for a long time to come because that guy can get people but ball in action.
He can get eyes open, shots used a high pick and roll, create space.
And that's what we need.
Because we don't have point guards.
Now I know people talk about driving whatever.
Really? Right now that Jack, there's no, you know, once in a lifetime generational point guard that we just have tohave, right? We have a bunch of guys who can move and move in space, right? We just talked about tonight.
Barrett has the ball, the high picking role.
He could move right, and he can operate in that capacity.
Same thing with Frank. He needs space.
Even offering, I think is better off ball.
I know Opal in a schemer.
It's more off ball.
Guys move around.
You could make the past pick and pops picking roses up like that.
I'm gonna be off.
You know, I mean pains by not gonna be here star next year.
So it's to me Atkinson yet **** right. The guy was with the Knicks.
The guy is a system building a culture builder.
If you added a few more pieces from that last year Team, that's a threat in the East.
Not what they eat.
Guys like Toronto never know.
You draft a guy here and there and get a supportive shooting guard.
Oh, you know, e get action.
You give him 34 five years development in his system is going to get you to try guys.
I put money, he's gonna play traer too.
So I'm a lot of practice interview him.
Um, you know, if you like him, get him.
Because again, this a team we have Leon rules, and he's the agent guy, But we're not going to probably get a lot of friends who want to come here.
So we need to build a proper system and foundation with the guys that we drive, the few freezing that we can sign a B C level free agent we could sign.
And the young guys we have on our team, right? Not like bra.
Yes, Kenny Jackson.
You're **** right.
And let me tell you what I like about candy eggs.
I like, obviously, this is just from what I read.
What? The fact that like the entire system, it like it is like a college system, you know, all you know, the discipline that goes into the entire system.
I was reading some article when he just talked about everything that he did and everything.
You know, all of the attention to detail and the schedules that they set up for each player.
And, you know, the developmental regiments that they sent send them home with during the summer and all of these things.
You know what I'm saying? Eyes Exactly.
Exactly what you need, exactly what you need.
You know, you said Tim Twosome.
He allegedly he gets in Playersfaces. He's not.
I mean, I was saying confrontational way, but he's not afraid.
I hate using the word discipline like that, but he's not afraid to be that type of coach like you, said a college coach who doesn't mind getting employers faces and not in a bad way, because I never seem really doing the court.
But he it seems like he demands a lot out of you.
And this, while at least makes a kite.
Katy Perry Because guys like didn't Woody.
You know, D'Angelo Russell wanted to stay in Brooklyn.
And the Russian guy People look at him all he's under this planet.
What's up? Well, he got ah so called disciplinary coach and he wanted to stay in Brooklyn.
That says a lot didn't Woody.
I'm pretty sure I will probably credit what's the name for his development? Because, let's be honest.
In what? He wasn't like this guy.
I don't think he was drafted.
I can't remember where I came from Oregon or whatever.
This guy wasn't high on the radar, you know? I mean, he got this guy, didn't want to probably think he's one of the best.
Um, when the best players off the pick and roll like money, best shooters or some like that, yet some ridiculously good stat, er, least when we last play them.
So again the guy can take and again for team where you might look and say art is not a lot of time.
A lot of young guys, you know? I mean, we talk about Knox, holds stuff right? Imagine getting the best out of knocks.
Imagine him if, God willing, that tree stays here and he gets something out of tree air.
I'll get a lot on a tree and trail.
Looks like, Ah, world beater.
You don't mean imagine you are.
Bear finally develops that shock and shoot off the dribble can shoot open threes because again, in his system, looking guys like like Harris looking guys a Garrett temple, you know? I mean, the guy can coach.
He can go wait about skills and something and making the offense a lot easier for certain players.
He does that, so I'm all for him.
And if he could get a If you get guys like Randall's face and get the most out of and Rachel's gonna be here next year and get him to play defense and wanna play in the system yet **** right we need we need a guy.
Get the most out of what we have now.
So I'm all for and check this like and I know this isn't about, you know, when I hear to talk about the next, but wasn't the whole reason that Cady went to Brooklyn is because, Oh, Kenny at what was said.
That's what was said.
That's what was said, right he said.
I just That's what he'll say.
That's what he said.
He said he went there.
He said he went to Brooklyn because he liked what they were building.
He liked what Kenny Ackerson was building the structure.
You know, the whole thing that he built, right? That's what that's what Katie said.
Whether that is true, that's what Katie's you know, that's that was his.
I don't want to say excuse.
You know, I never really thought he was coming to the nex anyway.
But that's what that's what it was he liked.
OK, Jackson was You know, it wa ce ready for you.
Are you serious? Are you serious? As I had? No, I never really thought he was going to do.
I mean, I went back and did the whole video.
D'Angelo Russell with Julius Randle way back.
Then you know about them coming in? I wasn't concerned about, you know, somewhere quick.
We gotta give Guillermo his flowers right now because give McCord is, like, months ago about Kyrie, Irving and Cady and Kenny Jackson not being there.
So I want to get my men gamers flowers right now because he called this, But I just want to chip in and say that Kenny actually is my coach.
That's my coach.
Will be the coach of the Knicks.
And no IRA doesn't even listen.
Family are rose it after the season.
This this I came here, take it.
Get Here's your four years.
Um, there's no to me.
There's no better Kennedy, then Kenny Addison.
You know, I read a couple of things and heard a couple of things, but so let me just listen.
Let me let me get this straight, right, everybody, Last year, everybody last year, that's all I kept hearing last year about Brooklyn was culture this and the culture.
And, you know, Cady went there because of the culture and Kenny Jackson and others.
But the next part ways.
And so I mean, who's like Well, Kenny Ackerson was the He was the culture builder.
E They had the culture.
They had their culture.
He was the culture builder.
It just so happens that Kyrie is the coach of killer.
Thank God is right.
I mean, I mean, he did it in Boston.
Clearly he did it in Brooklyn.
Well, he did it in Cleveland.
Tiring Kyrie Irving.
And this is And soon you could see it when they play right.
They had the first game of the season.
They scored 53 loss of the Temples.
Now I'm not saying you can't score that much and not lose.
But when? If you look back last year when D'Angelo Russell had games where you score 40 points, when did what he had games.
When they're scoring, you scored 20 some off the bench.
Whatever those games, you saw them win.
Exciting game like this is what I'm told.
Like, this is what I love about a guy like Kenny Atkinson when they couldn't take.
And this is why you have to give certain coaches leeway.
Why it's not good to always just bring on superstars, because certain coaches need time to bring in a certain mindset.
Like you said, you told my son, bring easy to make things regiments in terms of your workouts of our block.
You might even like you said, focus on what your inabilities or what you're not good at, which is, and that's excellent for coach to do.
Hey, you can't shoot.
We're gonna make you sure gonna teach how to shoot properly.
We're gonna fix us.
We say it took All these assistant coaches will get.
This guy has got You have a culture's mindset is to do that right.
The rate of improvement for some of our guys.
The guys we told about Knox a ball.
But he's going to get them in the proper position to succeed.
And that's when you could redeem.
All right, this guy, he's getting open shots.
You still can't make him out 2 to 3 years.
Then that's what you want from him, right? I want a guy like Kenny Atkinson.
Let him let him do what he wants to.
Whatever place he wants him in the GM as a coordinate, whoever they won't allow them to do to do the work.
This right here could be a watershed moment.
A sense of the nets, their their their direction has really always been off.
Right, Billy King, when he gave all those pieces of Celtics.
Oh, and then he got he got rid of him.
They had something last year, and they wanted to basically try to beat the Knicks in terms of the back pages.
let them let the Knicks get Kenny Atkinson and let's see who's winning because Katie Kyrie, Katie's 32 would have injured Achilles.
People don't understand how terrible that injuries and Kyrie is a culture killer.
Jared Allen said It best.
Higher into amazing is a ball, But you say, But But he said D'Angelo Russell got everybody involved in the offense and then sit way we give that.
I just have been giving me look, just look last year.
I hate to even a minute because I don't like Brooklyn.
But look what? Look how Look at that batch.
When when I'm Russell scored and Russell dish like, look how happy they were.
I'm gonna be honest.
I watched a few games it like when they celebrate.
It's not the same thing they were doing like coordinated dances last year.
Remember? That's what got me used.
Piano owners have the Nets on for, like game winners, right? And again, that's what we need.
We told about arguing bad.
We have out, you know, our theories to him and Randall not work.
Everybody is on one accord where if you cross over, somebody crossed over somebody.
If you made that agree that clustering I made that close to, you know? I mean, get Kenny Atkinson here.
Because for the simple fact like this, that's how you know it's Katie and Kyrie there.
Like you said, Senate culture killers.
You don't hear a peep out before the Katie Tyree trade.
Ah, thing happened, right? You didn't hear a peep from anybody Say, Oh, I want out. Oh, I'm trying.
I want to, you know, any type of rumors.
You know, Russell one to stay, didn't he was so much here.
We gonna overtake the next bob lock so they will fill themselves because they say this this work yet we got killed by the sixties who probably should have beat the ah, the Toronto Raptors.
You know, if it wasn't for Katie up, ma'am.
Letter three of ridiculous three, you know, I mean, this is a team that that they were a hornet, right? They were.
They were challenging teams.
We need to need that am coachman.
And watch this watch Brooklyn fade away.
Let me ask you this.
Let me ask you guys this.
Let's say that the nets kept kept kept the same squad last year.
that they had last year.
What kind of player would they have added? No, no, no, no.
I'm going to get back.
I'm gonna get back around itself.
But what kind of player would they have added? That would have taken them over the top, because if they if they would have stayed with who they had last year, they're not gonna win a championship.
In my opinion, they would have had to add more talent.
Ah, a star player, at least one right to help them get over the time.
What kind of player with who? Let's just say hello, right? What? They've been able to get a cat.
You got that kind of play because because because you gotta add someone who's going to be able to fall in line.
See, they added two players that the profile was already too high to fall in line with the coach that hadn't won a championship, right? They both won championships, so they're going to think that their way is the right way.
That's I mean, that's just what it is.
You think they're gonna think their way is the right way.
So what kind of player would they have added, that wouldn't have that would have been able to fall into the system but still be able to do their individual things.
I just I just prayed with him, either cat, but the guy that I think would have the train would have been impossible to get an athletic forward, right? An athlete told four like a poor George who can defend it.
I clip also bring up the ball, run the pick and roll because the poor George on a court, he's not necessarily a selfish player.
He plays within what his game is right.
They wanted to score.
But imagine playing that high pick and roll for 17 around them, dominating teams on defense.
You have him and Jack Al in the back from court, Um, and they're harassing.
You know, somebody's top forward and stuff and getting steals.
And that could have been That could be a scary team or you get a cat like like he said, I don't know how Cat is on the pick and roll, but you know, you don't think that scare about Castle.
He's producing on relatively bland like a black team, so I don't know how we work in that system.
But if they had a toe Athletic four like a poor George to play at 334 world, we're gonna call it four athletic, maybe three, three shooters.
Yeah, that that could probably put him on top of these.
All right, so? So if the next do get Kenny actress in and he starts to, you know, Listen, listen, you know, you got some guys here and then they bring in a draft pick on and he starts to turn it around.
You got to be careful about any free agents that you start to bring.
You don't just go out and grab a free agent just because they're free agent.
You got to make sure that this guy has the right mindset to want to play in the system, but also be able to get their individual numbers at the same time.
So you just, you know, the next we just have to be careful that they don't just grab anybody like the Nets just tried to go through, You know, you know that they don't grab anybody and they can play with someone who could bring a player.
I mean, like the Paul George's.
You said Kawai Lenders don't separate guys.
They fit perfect.
And doing that right because they know how to get theirs within, just was in the system.
And how to get there is within the system and understand that when it comes down to it, they might get the lad.
You know, there might be the guy that's called on to get the last shot, but, you know, they know how to play the what? The game within the system.
But then when they need Thio takeover, they can take over.
Since they decide to be careful to find that type of guy.
You hear me? It's gonna say something soon.
Yep, And this is for this is gonna be far away.
But I just want you to think about I know one thing about these these generation of free agents.
But I'm thinking about the next crop, you know, like I do eventually believe that if we had, like a course, I cannae that wuss Wu Will might get the Donovan missions.
We might get desire.
We might get the Brandon angle.
We might get Dole generations that are gonna be next up, because after a while, Paul George quietly and all these guys going to start fading.
But no, I'm not talking about I'm not talking about getting Paul George a cool I landed.
I'm saying that type of guy who has the kind of mindset where I can play in a system and get mine as well.
I'm not talking about getting the doors off getting Kawai, Leonard.
They're gonna be owned.
Done by the time not old old but and Thomas Nicks coming to the next What? Next again, you know, coming to the next.
If the Knicks would have got Kenny would get if they get Kenny actress and as the coach and he starts to build something right, You still coming to ah, system, that's or a kn organization that's building and on the incline, they're not gonna be looking for something that's on the incline.
They're gonna be here, and I'm staying up here, right? You know, the Paul George is in quietness, so I'm not talking about them guys, right? I'm talking about because Dominic keeps giving hints, given hints.
That sounds corny, but it seems like if the Knicks had something in place by the time he's a free agent was in two years.
No, no, he's still working.
So you're gonna He's gonna get their acceptance.
So four years will be every suit.
Hey, so he has to agree to the extension in the restricted restricted freeze.
Ah, the offer sheet.
Right. So right.
You know, if they offer him an extension, he has to agree to take the extension.
So And Utah's is gonna be impossible, cause I mean, Utah, they just can't attract free agent.
So they're gonna they're gonna throw it at me.
But those type of players who from New York with the area, you know? I mean, and they like that next, Like it's gonna be, You know, that's the type of guy that these young players, the drafts I just want cognac instrument.
I like I like that.
And he needs time.
Look, if some some another Carmela, I might get on.
I'm just saying, Like, Carmelo wants us to trade for him mid season.
Dolan cannot step in and do what he did last time.
Let Kenny Atkinson cook.
Let these this team bill man like Oh, yeah, that's That's all I gotta say, man.
can you actually think? Thank God the Brooklyn Nets got Katie and Kyrie because this Duke Kyrie I'm pretty sure it's faking his injuries and all this other stuff or part of it.
I might say all of it, But that's gonna be a mess.
And I don't want to leave that team soon.
It's gonna be a mess is going to continue, Ms.
It's going to be a man I want.
I want time in Brooklyn because this this really Pete me off a little bit because, yeah, I'm going to say if this was the next man, I just love how no one's really talking about it.
But they're still talking about Spike Lee.
That that is the crap that I hate.
That's always gonna be me annoy.
I mean, that's always gonna be there is no we can't escape.
And it's always gonna be that way.
He's always gonna be there.
If the Knicks, the Knicks, both sides can listen with Nick's side.
And there's somebody Frank.
I solo somebody's going to say something about Oh, they had this guy a long time ago.
They never gave him a chance.
Now, all of a sudden.
You know, all kinds of whatever.
It's always gonna be like that.
I say one thing soon because the public enemy's line of my name Did I ever say this about Fizdale being the right kosher to seem? I've never said that whatsoever.
Even when we first got him, I was unsure bottom.
So please don't lie My name now have Atkinson sucks and we get it and he sucks out.
But I was in high own fizzle like that.
Like I I said okay.
Because what you do with the Grizzlies may be misunderstood him.
But I've never said I was so high on him like that.
Please, please don't say my name.
I don't want to socially with his own.
Any shaping compassion to wait.
Guys say so. I know. I know.
You ready? H get many to, uh, get engaged in something.
Getting gays or something.
I'm going to sleep.
Do tell your wife you better not be told my No.
Just just bring e No, I don't.
Maybe three get made. You got crazy.
Is it a ring or Is that a lifesaver? I mean, that was a lifesaver.
I I'm just saying, Like like how much? You know, I hope you saved up some money so you could get in that.
Don't don't put it on layaway.
Don't make payments on it.
Just save up the money and buy a ring.
Do not make Don't make payments on it.
You know, don't buy a $10,000 ring, and then you're making payments on it for the next seven years.
And the ring actually end up costing you $20,000.
Just by what you buy by what you can afford to buy should be happy.
I hope to be had you.
If you give her a lifesaver and she says, What's this? Then don't marry her.
I was gonna get it. Chris.
The push spot things he knows a way.
Check this out at my, uh, my buddy over there.
Back in October, he got married, right? And the night before, So I was the best man.
His fiancee gave me the ring.
She's like Sim. You better not lose these rings.
I say I saw the man.
I was like Listen, I said, Oh, I said, let's go buy some ring, pops.
Well, when we get up there, give it a ring, pops.
All right, So we So we found the ring pops the night before the day of her wedding.
Their wedding when they were going through the ceremony, and it asks me for the ring.
I gave the ring pops, too, You know, um, the guy who was doing the weather, the pastor right to the past, his wife.
And she looked at me.
She was like, Sam, if you don't bring that ring, you'll take that ring out your pocket up coming over there.
Why? It was, But it was funny as evidence.
You can I want black hole.
Where did you get in trouble? What you say game.
You're psycho for that, man.
You know? You know, she's gonna heart is pounding.
Yeah, she probably she I'm foot boat.
I'm sure there's a slap or something in that Someone involved.
You're not telling us about the sea? The sea? Because I had the doctor had to ring in my pocket.
But I bought her, you know? You know, a it was a ring pop with a big candy diamond on top.
So this he had a big diamond.
I think I would.
I'm saying her husband So it bucket man, her husband agreed to it.
Huh? You think he has the right frame of mind to do? Of course.
You do something stupid. Not so subtly, Diallo.
I would do this on any of the day.
Well, come over.
I ain't trying, toe.
Yeah, I try and get slashed with their Okay, So it was funny, though.
I had because NBK I say obviously has it playing in the background, huh? Do you have you have it playing in background? I can hear it.
I don't have another play with the big girl.
I'm saying, Yeah, like, is it on speaker or whatever? Because I can hear my feet, I think No.
There you go. Put it back in here.
So so see, I met this guy.
Had the air phone next to the mike so that we could hear the feedback.
Only I say it may only it's only Isaiah. Showman.
Is there any way may? Hey, we'll see what happens with Kenny.
You know, I think if they did, they coach more.
If they did hire Kenny Atkinson, do you think Mike Miller stays with him? Do you think he would want to keep Mike Miller around? I think he would.
Personally, it was weird about Mike Miller in that statement.
It wouldn't be as like because there's an interim coach.
It wouldn't be as like, embarrassing or like, you know, me because he wasn't really the head coach or anything, right? So it's not like, you know, he's embarrassed that I'm now an assistant coach and I was just so I could see it happen.
I just think that, you know, he might have some other connections and you might go someplace else, so I mean, I don't blame him, but I don't want a connection because they usually want to bring their own guys.
Anyway, Most of the time he was signed under Leon Rose.
Huh? He said one million Rose.
What you talking about, Kenny? Excellent.
I do want my Miller.
Oh, Kenny Atkinson was sign is what A, C, C, C a or whatever.
Whatever Lee armor was eight days.
He was, uh, kidney action with agent of hiss with a client.
A client, right? Yeah, I think he's declined to see a but we're talking about.
If Mike Miller would come back under, Oh, under under Kenny Atkinson.
Oh said It is not is no shame in that.
And I'm like, no disrespect of my men.
I don't think he's gonna be a coach.
I had coach yet I think what to me? What happened would be if Kenny does, that can elicit can he does become the coach.
I would see Kenny actually make Millie.
They're going back to the Jie Li as a head coach or him being assist that be the top assistant coach for the mix.
Um, and I don't really see.
I don't see him getting a head coaching job.
I think the most will get right now.
Either get another D D G league job or he'll be assistant coach somewhere.
I don't think you'll get another Geely job.
I think maybe he'll be an assistant coach somewhere.
You may not be fully ready.
I mean, it's hard to say if he's really ready to take over the reins as an MBA coaching, not because he's never you know he didn't have a training camp after this season. Know that.
You know a team is gonna look and say, Yeah, we could bring him in as an assistant to see, you know, see what he could do.
I don't think the team's gonna look at him right now and then give him a head coaching job.
I don't think and it's not all.
His fault is such a crazy situation.
You know what you have, Julius Randle.
This spending double teams.
It's hard to be a head coach, Ricky King said.
G league lifer, I doubt really life.
Forget Mike Miller.
Mike Miller will probably do better if he actually just gets years as an assistant coach because it's still like things you learn.
But he has coaching he There's something there with him, so to say, I'm saying this cheerleader for life.
He was doing well with that next team.
I mean, let's not let's find him.
Estimate a man lie.
I, Jerry Stackhouse right now might get a call up as a coach somewhere because he's he's killed him with the genie to or he was.
I don't know if he's still doing it, but well, man, I'm about to get out of here, man.
And I just want to say to the chat, Yeah, I see people in the chat.
Sei guys, don't you know, don't let the neck split us when we're arguing, man.
It's just we just bantering.
I mean, sometimes it might seem like it's getting heated, but it's guest is all.
This is nothing.
E if you are If you if you are If you follow sports, then you've been an argument with your friend before.
I mean, if you have it, then I guess you're not a true fan ball, my cousin.

Oh, make it really easy works is when Sim utilize a admits be tight Gave me try everyone Be well sometimes my eyes a just be like yo Yeah man The nexus is a bad loss tonight You know, the wind was like By what? You don't like the wind? No, you know You know Just do right now, But I gotta be Try saying they don't get more, But be like this, right? Your next comic.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
You know what you're talking about, Ugo? I didn't shoot, you know, Zero for 30 tonight.
I mean, it wasn't it was really good.
So you know, I'm tired as you muted call do from breaking back for prayer.
Yeah, it was Tony Crow's man, Blackest of blackest day.
I'm joking with you.
Tony, I gotta talk to Tony. Boom.
Mama Crow, Khali, Khali Pasha.
Hopefully I said you need me.
But you said I'm a little key bully.
Not a bully, man, not a bully.
Also, Like some license is good is good to have these type of the ba*****t.
We all think that you have one perspective on the Knicks is gonna be boring.
So exactly if we have everyone, if we just all gotta paint agreed about everything, it would be boring.
What's what? That So LeBron got the barbershop? Bob.
What? Everybody agrees on the same subject.
What barbershop have you ever been into? What? Added Discussing everybody agrees on everything. Yeah, right.
Drinks wine at a barbershop anyway. Yeah.
What's that? They say that to ah, yesterday.
For underst you too, Rob.
Rob blows of the Parker.
I never been real barbershop that you drink wine.
They all agree on the same thing.
All right, All right.
All right, well, I'm going to literally start stuff on purpose.
Stuff, stuff on purpose.
Well, let me go.
But yeah, go ahead.
I mean, you were one unit. Maybe you are.
Maybe you could jump in there.
It was I'm sorry.
I was just curious on the last show you had said something about a three headed monster.
What was It wasn't a joke, man.
I was talking about Chris.
Paul called Mellow into Mari.
Started my Oh, I trash Look back because, you know, you know, Sam got happy when Carmelo Anthony's name coming with Leon Rose car on.
No, no memories coming back.
You know, you never said what you would.
You want Carmelo Anthony back? Be honest.
Not on this team.
Only way the only way I would want mellow back is if we had a really good team.
I don't know what he signed with the blaze.
The deal was right.
Say this team next year we make a huge leap and his team is like they won 36 games, right and knocks the star and develop boys of the guys started vote, which is still one.
Melo back only six games, 36 games and is like Yo, they had.
They had a few gaze, rarely if it went a certain way, that's easy.
40 42 wins and in the playoffs.
I think for me, for me, if I wanted Melo back, we'd have to have a team where we were like, Now we will win it 50 to 56 games and he will come off the bench for 15 minutes and give you a couple buckets and sit back down.
But he said, the only way I'll bring metal back is that you gotta have.
You gotta have a clear cut young superstar.
That's like he's one of the men.
No way this this guy has to be so good that mellow can't be like I'm better than so I gotta be like, No, I agree with you because that's the thing you put mellow on this this team right here, you'll be like like nobody honest, even scores, because I'm still e agree.
They I don't know.
I don't want it back.
But wait, don't Don't just say that they don't just say that, Nate.
Listen, Mellows a c a a You know, he was with C A for he was with Leon Roads for a long time.
I'm just saying I never said he was coming back.
I'm just reading what people said because Leon roles in the gym accordingly.
Has Leah Rose has interested in bringing him back? I guess you know so well, at least that's what the rumors say that Leon Rose has interest in bringing medal back.
Someone remembers about the mixes anyway, man, um, but I'm about to get a body.
I do want to give a shout out.
I didn't get a chance to.
I want to give a shout out to Jason Young.
You said, why was it R j playing in the fourth quarter? Hey, man, we don't know. No, no.
God, I don't know.
I just got to find out for Mike Miller.
Um, you know, maybe he felt like they needed to go in a different direction.
Berger Accountants are just burning account.
