Who's the other I got on? Who was the other coach that you were looking at? J.
Right, G right. Okay.
We'll be looking at Becky, Hammon and Jay. Right.
Um, two people are really on the opposite ends of the spectrum as faras coaching experience and all that kind of stuff, you know, like overall coaching experience.
You know what I'm saying? No.
You are so right, Mom.
Right Is from Villanova, right? Yes, sir.
On the big side of the Donald Canon, he says, Sim, you've been treating this bag.
You love the other show more than us saw.
I love both Now, man, it's not.
That is just way more information comes out about hip hop in society in life, then the Knicks.
Right now you're not upset.
That's what you're talking about.
Now, if you're talking about SportsCastr, you know, we're on the whole amount. A whole different.
I got a whole different thing going on with SportsCastr.
So as a matter of fact, I would not let you guys in on one thing and excuse my dogs and bugging out over nothing.
But anyway, if if you are okay, you're talking about the front stoop.
But if you were talking about SportsCastr, here's something that's happening on Sports Caster and we're looking for individuals that want to be part of it.
His SportsCastr is beginning an official nothing but next network.
Well, we're gonna have creators that come underneath this network create concept with SportsCastr and their hearts.
There will also come over this YouTube as well.
All right, so you know, if you are interested in being a creator for this, nothing about next network.
Please let me know.
But we still got our ambassadors out.
There's just, you know, with everything going on, we had to take a chill pill with it for a second.
You know, we did have a couple people who did some things for us and some other places in Atlanta and Florida.
Uh, but you know that to be a soon as the Knicks have back up playing will be back up with our ambassadors as well.
But let's get to this man.
Let's talk about let's talk about these two coaching candidates.
Judge Justin Hernandez.
Big shout out to you.
Said balance the Knicks more.
I'm depressed without you now, bro.
You know, if you depressed without me, I don't know.
Maybe we need to talk, you know, saying maybe, you know, maybe we need to talk.
I'm not a therapist, but I could provide therapy, but I'm not a therapist.
So if you do something crazy after, you know you can't sue me.
I said you missed your true quality.
Should have been a therapist.
Yeah, I don't know.
I worked in some of those fields where you got to provide counseling and stuff like that were like, it's ups abuse, things like that.
It could be stressful, man.
Believe it or not, it could be very stressful.
Let me get this gold. Let's start.
We're gonna start up. We're talking about Becky Hammon.
Let me just get Ah, little something over here.
Let's talk about a coaching experience and I'm not gonna talk about a plan experience because you know, yes, She played in the WNBA's.
She played in college.
He had a good, good careers.
But just like other coaches, we don't know if it's going to translate to coaching basketball with her.
I mean, I think that she you know from some of the things at least that I seen in summer league.
He has coaching potential in the N B A.
As a head coach.
She's coached with the San Antonio Spurs from 2014 to the present as an assistant coach in 2015.
She was the head coach of the Spurs summer league team are in.
The Spurs, won the MBA League of NB, a summer league title in that season.
You know, there's been obviously, you know, people from all walks of life, you know, that I said, Hey, you know, she's got the potential to be a really good coach in the NBA, knowing there's some people that think that she deserves a chance.
Did they have people that think that maybe she doesn't deserve that chance? You know? Maybe, Well, you know, maybe she doesn't deserve it.
A isn't for her.
I don't know if we'll hear both sides of the story tonight, but we're gonna have a good discussion about it, you know, because look, she's got limited nb a coaching experience.
But this main coaches who've been hired in the n B A with much less coaching experience, you know? Let's talk about it, man.
Kev must start with you.
Tell me what you think.
Let me that comes.
Experiences only be coaching in the n b A.
As an assistant coach For what, six years or so Yeah, I just wanna I'm not taken from 22 Perspectives Number one.
There's going to be a time in the n b A where a female me a language will be a head coach in the MBA.
It's gonna happen.
I mean, you've seen it with all tax of in sports and, well, pretty much in anything where there is going to be a time when a female where a lady will be a, uh, ahead, um, head coach in the n b a, um, because they can I feel as though they can do it just as good as you know, as a man.
Pretty much the only question is the scrutiny that will come with that, um, as faras um, if there will be respected at no, add the college, whether the player respect, what magical.
That's the first thing.
Um, the one thing with Becky Hammon is she went a title.
She did win a title in the summer league with that San Antonio team in 2015.
She won that time so already right there.
It shows that, at least for the players, the planes that were coming in and and the second year players that she has earned that respect.
So So you're looking at it from that stamp, Um, that from that standpoint now, as far as the Knicks are concerned, I it's more than likely that it won't happen.
But I wouldn't be against it because you're looking for a person.
You in a coach, and I always held them.
We'll talk about this all the time.
You want a person that has a plan and has a vision of how you want to play, what players you want and how you want to play.
And I feel as though it Becky has that vision of house you want, how she wants to play, how, what players? That she wants her.
Then if it Tony said with the organization, then I say, you know, I wouldn't be I wouldn't mind her being the coach. Now.
The thing about it is she's going to get a lot of scrutiny from the media and from our own mix.
Um, Knicks fans.
That's the one thing that she's gonna you know.
That's the one thing that's that I see being, you know, being a problem, you know, for her the scrutiny from the media and the scrutiny from Knicks fan cause we come hard at everybody on the Knicks organization, whether it's our owner, our general manager, our president, coach in our team and our our players, we come heart big time if we okay, so somebody let me ask.
Let me ask you this, right? What do you think is gonna make what makes it? Are you saying is going to be even harder or tougher on her Because she's a woman.
Then if she were a man.
Honestly, yes, I I dio I think it will be tougher, but again because you're in our i c Dilma laughing at everything.
The reason why I say that is because for the next, um um, for this Knicks team we're at, we're one of the tops as far as publicity.
As far as negativity.
Whatever you wanna call it were at the top.
I mean, cause we're New York.
So you put her and you put her in that position.
I mean, I see it.
I mean, she's gonna get scrutinized.
She's she's gonna get through. Maybe not.
You know what? Let me take that back.
Maybe not as a woman, but just because she's the Knicks coach, right? I mean, that's going to be any coach, but what makes it different? There's anything Make a different because she's a woman? Because I This is my opinion on that matter.
Um, I've been a lot of I've been around a lot of women basketball coaches, okay, And women basketball coaches who have coached women mainly, but also women coaches who have coached men.
Uh, and I've seen them Listen, women are more natural communicators than men, and I've seen them be able to handle.
I mean, you know, of course, this is youth basketball, but there could be a lot of pressure, right? There could be a lot of pressure when you have to address parents and, you know, people can laugh and say all this garbage that they want to say, you know about Oh yes, as youth basketball.
But I want to see you stand in front of 30 parents and have to answer questions about why, uh, this did not happen.
That did not happen.
It didn't happen this way or that way.
Why your team is not winning, why they think they should take their kid to go play here why they think their kids to get more playing time.
Why these two players have a problem and you have to address these things as the coach.
People can laugh at it, but that's serious stuff, and it's a lot of pressure, right? So put yourself in that position.
Put yourself in that position.
You don't know saying and see how you deal with it now, at plenty times when men coaches crack under that pressure and and people say it was just youth basketball.
But I've seen men coaches crack under that pressure.
I've seen men coaches cry.
I've had to say to somebody, Why are you crying right now when we need to be strong enough to address these parents about certain issues that have happened? You don't say I've seen women coaches handle it better.
I've seen women coaches handle it worse.
Basically, what I'm saying is I haven't seen a difference, at least on that level.
You're saying so I don't think that the pressure is going to be would be any different, but her, because she's a woman, is going to be a lot of pressure because she's a coach in New York City, but I don't see it being different because she's a woman.
That's just my opinion.
And I think, you know, I don't know who she is.
So I can't say I think that you could handle it, right? So you because I don't know everything about her, but I think that a woman could handle it because they're women handling, handling their women, handling things in this country a lot more difficult and a lot more important than the basketball team.
So, yeah, I agree with you.
I agree with that. That's what I was saying.
Um, I was taking back that that thought that of her being, you know, being a woman and everything again.
As long as she has a clear vision and a plan of how she wants to coach and who you know would on our king, I don't have a problem with it.
And again, I think some people they're gonna want the big main.
But again, if given put something out there that has a vision, it is capable of getting that respect.
Yeah, you know it is, You know, it's always a difficult thing.
Big freeze e your live Go ahead, man.
You're still live care.
So So I think there were a few barrier their way.
Uh um, like State Princess for 10 you know, man talk.
Speak to each other a certain way sometimes, man.
And we don't take like, ultimately, it's just like, you know how.
Then speak to each other.
Is that gonna be Is that gonna be, you know, an issue with Betty? Cause way will roll, You know, M m's and B's and stuff like that around in the heat of the moment.
And is Aziz, you know, coat Hammond the type that'll handle all of that.
You know that link with barrier and strive at being not not sitting into your seat.
But being in the head coaches seat, will she be able to take that step instructor to To also, can I ask you a question about that? So what would be the difference between taking that situation assistant sea and in the coat head coaches seat? Taking any coach for any coach was the difference between, you know, hearing that language as an assistant or hearing that language as a head coach.
So So as in his evidence, instant usually usually from, from my experience, be easily closer to the players, like even though you're a coach.
But you spend a lot more time with the players, especially like an individual drills and all that stuff.
So it's like, you know, when those like words like that get bandied about, it's like you kind of understand that you know, this person is speaking from my finger, **** anything.
But when you head coaching, you're looking at a total big picture, like when you've been between management and the players.
The perspective is a little bit different.
That that's my view. Wanted like fence.
It's like she takes detect Julius Randle out of the game after he spent into the lane and turned the ball over.
Look, for he doesn't hit four straight shots coming to the fire lines Mountain off because he's frustrated that he you know, I'm saying that he felt like he could go for, like, 40 and she take him out because he turned the ball over the invaluable possession.
So he, you know, really mouthy with the immense and bees and stuff problems.
You take that as opposed to do. Taking it a man.
I mean, you know, I mean, I mean, that's I think that's a good question.
Uh, I'm sorry. I know there's a delay.
Uh, and anybody who's breaking into something new is going to have to deal with some some of that.
Uh, you know, anybody? I think you know the first time there's a *******ual in the n b A.
They're gonna have to deal with that, right? I mean, it's going to it's going to happen no matter when it happens.
No matter when ah, woman becomes a head coach in the NBA, it's going to happen.
So, um, and I'm not talking, you know? So any team right now that does that says, Well, we don't want to hire because we don't know how she's gonna handle the language.
First of all, she's been in the locker room.
She's been in an MBA, locking one for six years.
I'm not I don't think there's gonna be a problem if you've been around.
Let me ask you a question.
All right? I'll phrase it this way.
I mean, about me and my assistant coach.
We were going around and, you know, soliciting donations.
Right? And when it came to walking into the woman salon, he said in Ah, we're not gonna walk into the woman salon right now.
Why? Because as a man, we didn't want to hear some of the things that they were talking about, right? If you ever been listen, if you have you've ever been around a bunch of women, you want to talk about language, all right, it language is sometimes more harsh than men.
You sit there, Live? No. No.
Did I just hear that? I mean, you know, I don't know.
I don't know what she have a problem with the language now.
I would be concerned with some of the younger players calling her a *****.
That's a problem, right? At the problem.
Some of those things.
I would be concerned with that.
But I do believe that she, a other men in the organization will be able to handle that situation.
I can guarantee you in San Antonio it's probably happened or came close to happening.
She's been in the locker room for six years.
You know what I'm saying? I'm pretty sure there's been times when she had to make this kind of call of that kind of call or correct somebody in practice or do some things like that.
And they were frustrated about it, you know? I know everything.
So, three, you might say, Ask her questions because Santa County was like a real controlled environment.
You got proper *****, you know, controlling that whole the whole environment.
So I question that.
I mean, I mean, you're right.
I mean, there is a lot of stuff, but there's always going to be.
Even when you have a lot of structure in control, there's to be what makes you have a lot of structural control is the discipline you put in place for players that step out of line.
That's what says, Okay, they got some structure in this.
Next, I'm gonna come back around to you, too.
Let me get something to get some other people in here because it looks like it's gonna be a hot topic.
Okay, I am going to get GMO Isaiah and needs I'm get you guys a new muted game.
Now Isaiah is a nude it.
And Nate, you know, muted as well.
So let's try to make sure that we are sharing the mic with each other once I go first.
You know, this is the interesting topic, and it's gonna is gonna be crazy.
Um, here's my thing.
This is This is my thing separate right now for Becky Hammon from the Becky Hammon and mix it be.
No, based on the based on the sense of me is not even it is not.
It to me is why I don't care that she's a woman. Whatever.
It says I don't want an experience coached.
I'm tired of tired of debt I'm tired of, You know, this getting in experience, Coach, I want Kenny Atkinson.
To me, that's the best option He has expansion program, check working.
We can't keep doing We can't keep doing unless, you know, the Knicks have to be first to do this.
We have a whole black front offices.
You know what I went Now we're gonna get a ah, we're gonna see if she fells.
It's all gonna be both.
The Knicks didn't do this.
The Knicks didn't do that Because, you know, this isn't that Were the Knicks are gonna not, because it's not gonna be because backing him and sucks the headlines is gonna be the next Couldn't help the first woman coach.
And they're hobo organization.
OK, that's gonna be a story.
So? So there's so there's two things I want to respond.
One agree with you, right? I'm not advocating for the Knicks to hire Becky Hammon because I don't feel like, uh, you know, if you have a rookie, you got a rookie president.
I don't want to have a rookie coach as well.
All right, um I mean, I've been clear with that, and I feel that way.
Right? Uh, I want to have an experience head coach with this team.
You know, someone who's been in the league coaching for a little while in this league.
That's what I want.
You know, Becky Hammy doesn't fit that bill for me.
The coaching experience doesn't fit that bill for me.
Um, but I know there's a lot of people, though, in the reason why I wanted to bring this up because there's a lot of people that don't want her hired because she is a woman and they're afraid because the second part of the thing that you said is if they fail, then the Knicks are going to get blamed for not supporting as a woman they couldn't support.
The first woman had coach, but a little bit about the block.
Okay, let me finish finish.
I don't want I don't like that part of it because you're right.
People probably will feel that way and it would come down.
I don't want any organization.
No, are I wouldn't want.
I wouldn't want any organization to back away from doing something because it is controversial because then we don't break down walls, right? That's happened to black people years, for years and years and years and years.
And I know people who say, Well, this saying, you know, this is this is something totally different.
Well, you know what You know you can say, I mean, it is different, but it's the same at the same time because we're making excuses as to why she couldn't do as a woman of but be so many issues because she's a woman.
And that's the same thing when it came to black people.
Uh, you know, helping black people break down barriers, right? Break down barriers.
Why you can't do it? Because, oh, well, a white person's not gonna listen to a black guy, so we can't hire him as a as a as a supervisor.
What you got going again? So first and foremost the reason why I came here? Yep.
The reason why Biggie Hammond's name came up or was this hot topic was because Popovich was playing.
This is in mind.
I'm saying this and because not saying this Popovich tryingto let me start that game.
Let me stop you right there.
You don't have to make that disclaimer.
I don't say I don't care what anybody thinks about what I say.
Well, come todo that disclaimer because it's on this show that I got responsibility for it anyway.
But I don't want you to say, Oh, that's that.
I'm settings from I'm sayings, not anyone else.
So I'm saying that what I saw from Popovich, he tried to play the walk round right to get LeBron James because obviously San Antonio is not hot spot and he was trying to vote for LeBron James.
That's Why did the whole trump thing and you know, it was talking about things that happened to black people in society.
The begging him by my saying was, so we for LeBron.
But he was set himself to do that.
As soon as I brought you into the Lakers, all that world crap went out the window.
Am I saying fighting for Blackpool's? I'm not saying I'm saying the angle was taking the China be wonky.
Well, that they went out the window.
Well, you know, she went out the window.
Tim Duncan got pushed into the coaching role that she was supposed to so called me being being set up for.
She got pushed out for Tim Duncan.
So that's that's a That's a huge blow that says that to me, that what seems being used for its in my perspective, what service it put publicity's versus were actually developing this person to be the proper culture that seems one side.
That's one point.
Another point is that about the black and a woman thing? Those are two different things.
I'm not saying now in this era, right? I don't think what we're saying is, hey, don't hire her because she's a woman.
But to me, in an all male sport, there's no because women are playing the sport with men.
It isn't to say that Lisa automatic because she's a woman.
If she goes, if she is, this is like Pat Summitt and she's coaching Tennessee.
Two championships are getting up there.
Bob La Yeah, I see the progress.
I wouldn't mind give her a chance.
But literally I was talking about is that we live in a time we're not gonna hire because she's won by a woman and black.
I'm not white woman.
I don't compare that to black in my I'm talking about women I'm not talking about.
I was using being black as an example as why someone would say we can't hire a black person because a white person wouldn't listen to them.
We can't hire black person because the white wouldn't affect them.
When you're talking about coaching Chuck coaching, this is where I disagree because you talk about it and just rip it guys a free.
I only would say the mixture and stay away from that because again, I don't want the papers riding us.
And then ideo are people get us to say that the Knicks have ***, it's life.
Are there rumors calling Vicky him and a B and stuff when I heard you know that's gonna happen, Give you know that's going.
And in this era where believable women and you could lose your life and you're saying like you but you could you could lose your life, get job and everything because of allegations, and then 30 years after your death, then it's hey oh, yeah, he was telling the truth.
So I mean, that's an extreme.
Obviously, I don't think the Nixon you need to get in any of that type of thing, starchy the fact that they're trying to get going out anyway, we don't need to be around any of that controversy.
So that's that's That's my thing.
And the other thing I'll say about with men and women coaching This is not to come off as ***ist or anything like that.
There are great female leaders within certain contexts, but they are trying to make a concerted effort to try to put a lot put a lot of so called woke or liberal liberal narratives with sports trying to force it and you see it and I think one of ways and trying to do it is they tried to a ball with that coach.
That coat that did like a 40 Niners used about 40 minutes ago.
Uniters shouldn't do anything.
They're trying to do it, push it with begging him.
Oh, yeah, the first woman.
And it's like you have a need, a woman come in and you're really only pushing them because they're women.
And that's not to say that they should not get a job.
But for me, as a Knick fan, I'm not hiring Becky Hammon before I get Patrick gonna look, I'm not saying that you can get before other men, but Patrick, you literally could not get.
I mean, what? I'm not saying that I'm not comparing her.
I don't see you experience.
I'm not comparing coaching experience.
If someone says I'm not hiring her because of coaching experience, all finding.
So they say I'm not giving her a job before Patrick Ewing.
You about point on the woman thing.
I was trying to say that there is an agenda.
Do you want me to magically, man, that's another thing, but it's part of it where they literally trying to force women into roles.
I'm not saying that women can't beat it, but China is mesh rolls into leadership positions, leading men.
And I'm sorry and MBA is one thing.
But I've seen with NFL like Kevin said, Oh, they're doing it all the sports, no coat women codes in baseball, the normal coaches and in soccer and football overseas is a woman and hot.
There's no one peaceful.
And they started sensibilities that a man went and booked.
This is this one of reasons why even male coaches, when they see certain male coaches that you didn't go to the ringer.
You don't know what you're talking about.
You want one of us? You didn't play like one of us.
She didn't go through the through the pain and struggle like we did. They disrespect.
So when they say first, like Becky him and yet you played them and maybe you know and see that she kind of got pushed because of pop questions like What does she do if she's not? Coming in with some intricate new triangle offense is something that's gonna okay but confused a little bit. I'm confused.
Are you talking about for a coaching track record? Are you talking about her being a woman That I mean because you kind of going, which is what I'm saying is that as a woman, it's going to work against her if she is not coming with something that is mind blowing in terms of style of play should not come with those things, right? Her coming as a woman, people which has been around because it feel I we know for we feel that this lady's been pushed ahead.
She doesn't know what she's talking about.
She's not giving us anything new.
And I just just to now, whatever.
What? By Abbas, Other milk we're gonna happen.
Even what? With a female coast given good singers, the greatest leaves or course parts have been men.
Because men let me get around, get around, get around here, get And we get around here to some other people.
All right? I mean, I mean, I see you know, you shrug your shoulders like that, but you've been going for longer than just about everybody else.
I'm trying to get some other people up there, Nate, Go ahead.
Yeah, You know honestly, Sim.
I think everybody is looking at the negative over Becky M.
And just because she is the woman.
The fact is, let's look it.
Let's look at the reality.
She's under good crop of it.
Well, here, here's the thing, you know.
Hold on, hold on. Hold on.
Okay, listen, she she's under the tutelage of Coach Popovich.
Coach Bob Images very well respected in the n B.
And the fact is, if he even thought of putting her as an assistant coach, that means that there's something special he sees in her and the fact that he put Tim Duncan.
Let's be honest, him and Tim Duncan and co choppers Relationship is like a father and son.
Okay, so I can understand why he may be put her ahead of the line.
Plus, he probably thought that she's probably gonna get a coaching job because most time the assistance centre coach Popovich usually do get coaching jobs.
Do you think she's probably next in line? That's why he brought Tim Duncan and because in blankets popping, I need a couple of years toe to get there.
But listen, I think it would be a great story if they brought her on, because the fact is that she's already played in New York.
She's already been around the atmosphere.
Yeah, you could say to play the W B A.
So what? She still was in New York, you know? And she was the best player on the team, you know? So and I think she's very battle tested.
I think she could handle the New York media.
I think she could handle the players because here's the thing.
If if the New York Knicks are going to go out and hire her as head coach, they're going to make sure darn well that they do not, um, they do not let this fail.
They're gonna do their darnedest to make sure that this works because they understand that it's going to be difficult and the trend in the transit vision for a female coach to coach a professional n b A team.
So I really feel like they will give her the full support of everything she needs to be successful, you know? I mean, you know, some of the things that I'm hearing it will it I don't know, like, for example, I'm looking at something.
The chat right down says, Right.
She's supposed to be in the WNBA's, That's what.
If she can't play in the n B A, she shouldn't coach.
Well, there's a 1,000,000 men that can't play in a culture. Jobs.
Yeah, You don't say Like, you know, everything that I heard.
Oh, you got to do something special s so that you could be doing if I will.
You know what? As a black man, I always had to be above and beyond.
You guys always had to prove myself above and beyond.
Same cir***stance, You know? You don't say that.
You know, there are cultures in this world that are run by women.
The leaders are not but America.
Some were afraid that we're going to be emasculated.
I'm not afraid I'm gonna be emasculated If my wife made more money to me and I said, Yo, baby, go ahead.
You go ahead and work. I'll take care of the house.
I do it. I don't give a ****.
I'm not worried about my manhood.
I'm not worried about being emasculated.
I know who I am.
Wasn't time changing, man, you know, I mean We have women who teach our Children in school, but they're not good enough to teach him in basketball, right? We have one professors in all levels of college, but they're not good enough to teach us.
In basketball, they don't have to get out on the court and plate.
They don't have to be able to scrimmage in practice, which they can.
I've seen plenty of women that can.
They don't have to do that, though.
They just gotta have the knowledge.
They gotta have the basketball knowledge.
You don't think you could go with things like that? Yeah, I Yeah, No, I agree, man.
Some of these comments are just pure ***ist.
I mean, the reality is that times are changing, and seeing a female coach in professional sports is should not be nothing new.
It's gonna happen.
It's just the way the way the world is far diversity going, but also to let me say this as much as I I would love to see Becky Hammond as next coach.
I I agree with Isaiah.
I want a proven coach.
I think this scene is too young, too young to get a rookie coach But if we did go the route of getting an improving coach, I would like to give her a chance.
I really would, because I'm telling you she's battle tested.
She's been on a great, been with a great organization.
She's been with probably arguably the best coach in the last 10 20 years in the N B. A.
I think if you put it in the right position and give her the right support, I think she could.
She could succeed, man, I really do.
I think she'll come in with.
They won with her expectations of what she wants and what this team is gonna be about.
And I think you'll I think you'll see a lot of probably the great Popovich mentality.
It's my way or the highway, you know? I mean, I mean, does that That follows with young players.
Look, look, I'm not saying to hire her because I'm with you.
I want to have and experience coach.
She's been an assistant coach in the N.
Was six years, right? Yeah.
That's not the experience that I want on this team.
No, you know what I'm saying? Uh, you know, it's not the experience I want at all.
There are plenty of coaches that probably deserve a job more than her because she does not have the experience.
That is one thing that is one thing.
Making all these things because she's a woman and she can't handle this is you can't handle that.
There's gonna be scrutiny on the team is going to be scrutiny on her to me.
You know, that's just feeling breaking down walls and get to a couple of phone calls.
And then we're gonna move on a jail, right, Because I got to get to the front stoop before I get to some phone calls.
Let me give a big shout out to John.
Okay? Anything with Super chat? I think I did it already.
Thank you for the Super chat.
Just a Hernandez thinking for the Super Chat.
Bravo says some.
We love yourself from Michigan.
I, like beckons, is a good coach, but probably enjoy shopping in man.
Hey, well, you know, I don't know what her shop shopping habits are, you know, But, you know, I believe I do think she'll be a good coach one day.
I don't know What shopping habits are all right? And Mr G.
Thank you for the super chat.
You said some of the female W N b A.
Players speak justice dirty as men do.
I definitely agree with you there.
Let me get the tie.
Can't see a super chat right now.
So tie, I'm going to get back to you in just a second.
Assumes that that super chap up.
Let me get to a phone call. Caller.
You're live with nothing but necks.
Man was popular ale.
You that All right? Looks like that call is not ready.
I'll get to another call.
Assumes one comes in.
I'm pretty sure this and people that want to, you know, they have a word or two about this big silence.
Everybody who was on SportsCastr.
Appreciate you guys for tuning in.
And until we get another call in, we'll skip.
We'll talk about Jay.
Wright has only got about 15 20 minutes left.
We'll get the J.
Right? Jay Wright is a guy that's got some basketball coaching experience, but none in the n B. A.
J writes been coaching for 26 years.
Ladies and gentlemen, 26 years.
That's a long time to coach.
All right, he's been from 94 to 2001.
He was the head coach of half stroke.
He wants Ulysses and championships, two conference championships and soon tournaments.
Why they went to two tournaments from 2001 to the present.
He's been a head coach of Villanova 17 regular season championships, four conference championships, 14 tournaments, three Final Four appearances and to NC double A championships.
This man's got coaching pedigree, ladies and gentlemen.
Now I do not believe that Jay Wright would leave Villanova.
That's my opinion.
I don't believe he'd leave Villanova, but Scott.
A tremendous coaching resume.
And although he's a college coach, that would be trying to make the jump to the N. B.
I think you know, I would be dumb if I didn't try to give him a chance if he was interested.
Anyway, let me get to a call or call the young Laventhol.
But next was popping and hold on.
Let me let me let me let me try to get this caller and maybe it was me.
The reason why I didn't hear the call.
I don't know. Maybe I'm not hearing.
The call is right now.
Maybe I got something going on, so I'm not having the calls.
Ladies and gentlemen, that's issue.
All right, so maybe I'm not.
I know I have to work it out.
Doesn't look like I'm able to get these phone calls up right now.
I apologize, Ladies and gentlemen.
Um, not exactly sure what's happening with the phone calls.
Let me get you some guys that's here in the chat.
Talk about Jane.
Right? And I will be moving on to the front stoop.
Let me get some of these guys up here and see what they thought. Process.
I'm coming evergreen, cause I haven't seen it.
Spoke to Evergreen in a while.
Have a great was popping brother.
How you feeling? It was going Hold up, man.
Hold up, man, cause I'm not I'm not getting you either.
I don't know what happened, but I'm not getting I'm not getting sound anymore.
Not sure why I lost my sound.
There you go. I lost sound for a second.
What's going on? What's going on? What's your brother.
I'm just trying to, you know, about survived this, Rohner, you know? Yeah, man.
But I'm back on back, lamb.
But there wasn't missed me. I'm back.
I guess so. Jay.
Right, man, talk to me about what would you do? Yo should listen.
I'm I'm here in South Jersey, right? And I get nothing but the Philadelphia radio and pencil paying your radio.
You know me where I'm at right now, everyone is losing their mind down here for Philly, saying they want him to be the coach of the Sixers.
A problem for me.
I don't give a **** who we get at this point.
Just give me a little bit of experience.
Um, my issue right now is more or less player driven than coach driven.
Now, don't get me wrong.
He's got, you know, tons of experience is head coach with Villanova and, you know, like you said coaching pedigree, but I think are bigger issue right now.
No, we have tons of candidates that can that can really galvanize this team.
At least that we think Oh, my God. Something. People.
We got tons of people that we think it can can can galvanize this team.
Um, Jay Wright being one of them, just with with his experience.
I think he would be good because he's coming from Ah, very youthful background as far as being ableto coach, coach, young players, that coach looking underplayed. Thanks.
You know, I get He's done a lot with college, but coming from the from, you know, having these college players that coming straight into the envy A now as a coach, is a totally different game.
So well, will he be able to utilize this experience to be able to take ah Young a young N b A team? They're not necessarily to the promised land right away, but to really be able to develop and build these players in the N B A level.
I'm just not sure of that.
So Teoh go along the way.
But Guillermo was saying in on a coaching standpoint, period like I want someone who's got some type of MBA experience that we can see that, that they've actually done something in this league and we can actually see their philosophy right now before we put pen to paper and start signing contracts.
Golden start signing contracts.
You know, the Knicks fans.
We wanna see some.
You know, we have Everyone has their ideas on what they think could have, but all all day it really No, but squeezing J right? You know, and, um Oh, girl, like we don't see anything right now that they could really do an implement To make this an issue to me is a place near issue.
You're breaking up pretty bad, man.
You're breaking up pretty bad.
I come back, I try to come back to you if you have enough time.
Nick, my man. Nick. Nick.
I'm coming to you, Nick.
All right? I'm just give everybody some.
All right? Great.
We're talking about J R I j.
Um, yeah, all right.
I had a short lists.
Five people, the right one on one of, um I really like if you look at the past, give or take seven years, he's his coach.
Somebody that has been a effective role player or, um, really good player out this out of league.
He's developed guys that are more four star recruits and built him up pretty much over a couple of years that that make them, um, you know, someone of Ah, five.
Sorry, who? Like me.
Miguel Bridges was nowhere near Ah, first on draft bake if even a drafting he helped.
He had a program that built him from basically a skinny kid added somewhat shooting over the years.
And of course, he had his own dry.
But And you look at the fact that he runs a better offense for more N b A style offense in college.
Um, and you know that stuff.
You gotta ask the question Now, I if when you and MBIA contracts, when you add the NB personalities that that come with the MBA, could he coach in that type situation? And that's something that everyone has to ask before you can hire a college coach.
So it may be tough, but I think he could do it.
It's just that does he want to do it? That's the last part because the right has denied coaching jobs by many teams thus far.
Even Philly filling me have ah, open spot this year, and I think they're going to compete with us for some cultures.
Um, but if filly filly, um, you know, fires Brown, would you write? Want to stay inside Philadelphia and and a coaching that team, which is a better team than the next? Right now, we could have, Ah, essentially a same situation, like we coach blood and in the books.
So I think he's a good coach.
I don't think he will come toe where, you know, you never know.
Yeah, I don't I don't think he's leaving Villanova, man.
Eyes just hard for me to see him leaving Villanova.
You know, he's been therefore since 2001.
You know that's here.
You know, that's that's a lot of dedication to.
That's a lot of dedication today.
You know, to that program, man, it's hard for me to see him leaving, filling over to go to the Knicks.
It was Philadelphia, maybe because it was kind of staying home, but just offering to see leaving that program.
Yeah, way got it.
And one thing you guys were talking about, like a proven coaching stuff fight at, and I think he is a proven coach and he has a proven way of building guys up there has worked.
Um, Civic Bay came out of nowhere.
I was looking at gold Villanova this year and they were slow building on and said It may just want to know where, like, where was City Bay on the beginning of the year? Nowhere and out of no way he comes up.
But he One thing about Villanova is he finds talent to, but they always forced our guys that he makes into five star guys or what builds them up into a first round draft pick type.
So you, when you think about like Frank, Frank can't shoot worth a ****.
Could he make Frank, uh, five star type player? That Smith? Same thing, like what could he do with the talent that we have? And you might be able to do really good things? Um, the fact that the Knicks still never rule him out is kind of.
It's kind of telling, because we are trying to get somewhat of a good proven coach and the fighting outlier and everything is still always bringing his name up with every court in candidate that really says something to you.
I only got a few minutes left.
Let me get around to a couple people. That's here.
Uh, you see, we got Ah, just a nick.
I was new to the chat.
Justin, I'm coming to you, man.
What's going on, man? Are you feeling? How you feeling? I think it would be good.
So what you take, man appreciated, Appreciated? What's your take on the right? Really Quick, man.
I like right on the We got a mobile.
Well, I want Yeah.
Uh I mean, that's what I want to.
We're not going to go out with charity.
Always a day, right? Was also because he could develop every year.
You come over little always like, oh, executive Lincolns.
If it wasn't for Chirico on the throat goobers, Carrie Gilbert way.
I think you will be the same beautiful Mr Robertson.
They're going to be Barry.
So I'm like 10 jackets. Monopoly.
I mean I mean, go after one of those, but nearly No, no, I like that.
Memorable is black with condiments.
What it takes is one of the brain to go over the border there.
You know, that could be a media frenzy that Hong and that's gonna be wherever she goes.
saying that that happens that way.
It's harder they come out Mawr grateful that were New York, you know? Look, is the media out there? I mean, I mean, yeah.
I mean, there's no doubt about that.
You know, if it happened in New York, would be it Be it be it be crazy, you know, saying But that player would get it, get it.
And they get it from the media saying whatever happened inside the Knicks locker room.
And to tell you the truth, she might be the type, just like you know what? I'm not even worried about it.
You know, I'm going to give you the same punishment as if you just call me an idiot.
You know what I'm saying? So you know people not like phoenix.
Uh, already there.
I mean, I don't know, you know, Say, I mean, I don't think she is the coach for the Knicks anyway, you know, I'm saying because like I said, I want somebody with experience, you know? You know, that's the way that I want to go because, you know, we have some inexperience and someone who has a proven track record of development players, But That's the only reason that I wouldn't hire.
But it was He had to say, Yes, I would.
I'm saying I would hear what she had to say.
Just like I would hear what Patrick Ewing would have to say.
I mean, I would you you you know, you know, I am going to read a comment little later.
You know what? You know someone said about Patrick Ewing, you know, mean, um, I'm not putting her against Patrick Ewing.
That's not That's not the issue here.
I'm not putting her against Patrick Ewing, but anyway, let me get around to some other guys.
I got to get off a hand like a couple of minutes, man.
I appreciate you joining us.
I see at work, man.
Take care yourself.
Be safe. I get man appreciation.
My brother let me get to Joe 1 70 man and see what's probable.
My man Joe, you there? It does have a say.
Let my wife coach next.
She was getting all I'm Nigga's ass is and we'll win some football.
Oh, what's the language, bro? Western.
I thought, Yeah, but let my wife cause my I think my wife Costa next man.
At this point, anybody who coached the Knicks, I me, according to some of these guys they hit, you know, saying, because she's a woman, you know, there'll be some serious problems.
She complain under that and played none of that.
I mean, is horrible, like weekend.
We haven't had a coach in, like, 20 years.
Yeah, I feel like we need another manual.
I know with a long shot, but that we get the Ricky somehow, get Gregg Popovich.
I think you control the New York media.
I mean, probably could. I don't think.
I don't think Popovich is leaving San Antonio.
I think whenever it's done there, he's retiring his goal.
He is basically the only one who came.
I think Andrew, New York media, to be honest with you because there's no other catching.
There's no other coaching MBA that I feel at this point that the handle the media, but But Pop, you see how the app opening in San Antonio he'll go with in San Antonio.
He treats the media like trash.
I mean, right and they know they're a little scared of pop, you know, way a my man.
I'm sorry. I got to cut it short.
It's just I got to get to the next show, you know, saying, But please make sure you come back.
Yeah, What's the almost this? That the other joint you do the front stoop stoop with that, you know, is this hip hop We talk.
We talk about hip hop society.
We just talked about stuff.
Anything, really? Oh, that's on here.
Tour. That's what I'm different. That's on.
Um, it's on a one is if you're going to YouTube when you type in the front stoop, stopping the front stoop hit pop society life and it'll pop up and you can join the chat and there.
But that one is whereby dot com slash front stoop.
They'll tell you guys whereby dot com slash front stoop.
We ask the guys in the chat, they let you know.
All right, I a Andrew me get to you.
It was something that's going on.
They have me on.
They're for having me on appreciate your brother.
So how do I feel about Jay Wright and Becky Hammon on? I mean, J J Wright is cool.
We don't mean, obviously had a lot of success in college.
You're seeing what he's done with that college.
But an older team, I weigh in mind.
But me personally, I want someone that is least coaching the n B A.
The last couple of seasons, okay? And but he's cooling off me. I went mine.
The previous people we talked about on the show was like, you know, Kenny actors in the time Tom Thibodeau all waiting, I would pick them over him.
And if all is Becky Hammon it.
I'm not Foursome, I'm not with you.
I see that being the train wreck disasters and, like, I'm just being completely honest with you.
The reason why I don't see that happening is because I see your women.
But she gonna be emotional.
She's not gonna be logical.
See, that's See, that's the issue right there.
That that right there, that right there kills it.
I mean, you said she's gonna be emotional.
She's not gonna be a logical Come on, I'm telling you, I'm telling worst.
Is that now she don't pay off favorites just do the same thing.
So why are you saying you saying men do the same thing.
That why are you saying that she's going to do that? Because she's a woman is gonna be to the extreme.
You should have one home favorites.
She gonna be thinking this guy's to these guys attractive.
I'm gonna give You know what? I'm I here with that one.
Booth can't Can't coach the team.
Get out of here with that garbage.
She's gonna like the players.
Has there been any any? Come on, man.
That's this garbage man.
Anyway, listen, it's 11.
I got to get over to the front stoop if I didn't get to you guys in the chat and jeans.
My I apologize, but I got to get over to the front stoop.
I heard some crazy crazy stuff on here.
She's gonna be emotional.
She's not gonna be logical.
She's going to try to date the men.
That's just ridiculous.
Takes if you talking to me something about basketball that's just ridiculous.
Shot out the side.
More was taking for the Super chat.
You said Hammond isn't any better coach than Patrick Ewing.
You're probably right.
Pat has cachet, has a New York legend will be devoured by the media with salad and dessert on the side.
I'm not sure I actually agree with that.
You said they can't get a sniff at head coach.
Why should Hamon? I'm not saying Hammons should get a sniff.
Um, but I'm not saying she should become the head coach.
By all means, I believe the Knicks should be looking towards Patrick Ewing.
Patric Young has a much deeper coaching resume than Becky Hammon.
That's the only reason that I believe Patrick Ewing should get Ah, look over Becky Hammon is because he has a coaching resume and she does not.
But it does not mean that it can't happen.
He got hired over Pat you on.
You have a coach today in his life.
Decent kid got hired in Brooklyn.
He never coast a day in his life, right? So it's not always about that.
And this is the case with Becky Hammon and Patrick Ewing.
Some people are going to be better than others.
Even without experience.
It happens all the time.
Any job in the world you go to, you see young people that shoot up to the top over someone who's been there for 20 years because that person has some talent.
Yet that person has been there for 20 years.
Did not have it happens like that.
Sometimes I just find it this, honey.
And, you know, people could say, Well, you know, some coaches, girls, you know.
So you know, it's something different now.
It's not like that, you know, I was raised.
Maybe I do have a different perspective, right? And I'm pretty sure a lot of you were raised.
You know what? Ah, and in a single family household, you know, and the way you know the way, whatever happened, you know, when you're young and whatever happens with your parents, it kind of shapes your perspective.
As you move forward, you're saying it shapes your perspective.
So, yeah, it does shape my perspective in a way.
That scene, you see, I see my mom fighting struggle and put up with everything and anything to raise me and my brother.
You know, say there were a lot of mistakes along the way.
A lot of mistakes along the way, you know, mistakes that you know, could have put me and my brother down for a while or for life.
Who knows that it was a lot of mistakes and wrong the way I'm not going to get all into that well said.
But she stepped up and did the things that she had to do.
You're saying I had seen her deal with men in a way that even some other men couldn't deal with them.
Right? I've seen women leaders throughout my life deal with young men, You know, I'm saying deal deal with young men.
This whole notion that a woman can't deal with the language That's crazy to me.
That is crazy to me.
I know some women that you will stand next to, and you will fear them.
I can guarantee it's you will fear them, and you will not f with them.
They want to fight you.
You're probably like Nam Coop.
Go to some places and you will see what I'm talking about.
You know this whole thing? You know what? What? What? As we was just talking about, She's gonna be a most knows.
You can't do this.
You can't do that. That's that's crazy.
That's hogwash to me.
You mean that's does is hogwash.
He's going to try to date the men what's been in San Antonio coaching these young men for six years.
I don't know she's married and that she may be married at home.
Those right with six years and anything like that.
So that's just stupid speculation, because she's a woman.
The same type of stuff that we heard about black men, black people, not the same type of stuff.
But you know, these crazy.
They're gonna be lazy.
They're not going to do the job.
White people not going to respect them.
They don't have the education.
They can't deal in a white world, you know, saying they gotta go in their community.
They got on Lee work in their community because they can't work in a white community.
They can't work in a white man's job, you know? Hey, you know what? Everybody? You know, everybody is gonna have the opinion on it.
It was just, you know, tough to see for me.
You know, that someone with discount her as a basketball coach because she's a woman and she can't deal with some of the societal measures that might come along with it.
You know me I'm gonna tell you what.
No matter when she becomes a head coach, if she becomes a head coach, no matter when there's gonna be some societal pressure that comes along with it.
No, me and you know, some organization is gonna have to be the one that says we're willing to help.
You know, we'll break down that door, you know? But anyway, my man time or was taking for the superstate, you said Bottom line said the Knicks need an experienced coach that could develop players.
Fisher was a huge mistake.
Official was definitely whose mistake.
And that is the bottom line.
I agree with you.
And that is the reason why I do not believe the Knicks it higher Becky Hammon.
But I wanted to touch on this issue anyway.
No, because it's an important when acting feel.
Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, I'm out of here, heading over to the front stoop.
You know I'm gonna be late.
So if you had no to the front stoop, expect me to be there 11.
It's just something like that.
I got to get everything set up. Okay.
Catch me on the front stoop.
Ladies and gentlemen, be peaceful.
Thank you for joining me in amount.
