piece that hurts is your boy Trudeau.
Any star hosted the Dynex podcast.
Welcome you guys to another podcast, man.
I had to get busy today because, um, you know, it's just got bad news about Brown a tailor.
Now, it's bad news and stuff that that I don't think anybody was surprised about it.
And it's a shame.
An but, you know, it just, you know, you you you go through all that stuff expecting, um, you know, something to happen eventually.
Something to change.
Um, you know, it has been a lot of protests.
You know, this summer was crazy with the protests, and, you know, like like I said, it is great to see this, like, I'm not just, um just, uh you know, black and Spanish.
But it's been mostly white, you know, and every other race that you can that you can imagine in, um, in these protests and stuff like that.
So, you know, you would You would hope that that the things would change in the government sense, but that's that's gonna take a long time.
And we have a lot of soul searching from everybody down way at the bottom.
So all the thio even to reach the top.
But, um but the change that we are seeing is the is the spectrum The full spectrum of colors, man.
So I just wanna show this man this, uh, this shirt here I was promoting, you know, during the time and the summertime tryingto no promote awareness to the whole situation And Thio get away from me Thio Thio be able to donate and I donated to the social change fund.
Uh, you could find a video like that on YouTube.
I re posted it on YouTube.
You could see that.
You know, I decided to make that donation to the social change for him.
And that's like a charity that was brought along by Melo CP three and Dwyane Wade for away, For for them to give back and for for, um, for people to have a place to to donate to, you know? So you know, it's just just sad news, man.
But, you know, you can't you can't really expect things, things to change.
And unless we all change So I mean, you know, there's still a basketball podcast.
You know, Nick's podcast, man.
So I just I just needed Thio to make that.
And I was before I started.
Because that's that is important.
You know, sports and everything is supposed to help us get get over it, but, you know, to get past it or or to help us get through.
But, you know, you can't ignore it, man.
You can't ignore things that you know, like it like it never happened.
But, you know, in this podcast today, man, I want to talk about Tala hero, man.
And, of course, I'm gonna relate it back to my Knicks.
But, you know, tell a hero you you can't really take nothing from the kid, man.
You know, he averaged, uh, for the regular season he averaged around 13 4 and two.
Now, this this regular season has Asterix, right? So I wanna go with this clutch points, um, article, uh, that they would just say the reason.
The real reason why, um, Talal hero is actually succeeding.
It's because of cove it because of the break.
The season ended When did the season and in on February season ending in February.
And then we had all this long break, and then all of a sudden it picks up again in August.
So we talked about February, March, April, May, June, July, August.
What's that? Six months **** near six months.
Just about of training.
You know what I'm saying? To get ready for this bubble.
You know, I'm saying that's free training for a rookie.
So he's not really rookie right now.
Like is really like a second season.
So, um, you know, you wanna just wanna talk about it like that? It's the second season.
Let's just get into his arm.
His playoff stats, of course.
This playoff stats, um, get a little bump, you know, of course.
Also, he gets a little bit of minutes.
Well, so I mean, that's responsibilities is on field goal percentages on three point percentage, and his free throws always been great.
Not great, but been pretty good.
44% from the field.
We're talking about 37% from three at 88% from the free throw.
That's pretty consistent from what he was doing in the regular season.
But just the minutes the minutes went up by six minutes, and that's due to a man.
We just trusted him, so I know that they had him you know, training.
And he was able to do whatever he needs to do to get better and just add a little.
That is just a perfect storm for a kid to get better.
And not only that, let's go back to the regular season.
The regular season stats.
Hey, was on the average and, UM, four rebounds and two assists.
Fast forward to the playoffs.
The Bubbles were talking about how many games here.
13 games in the playoffs so far? Um, he's averaging five rebounds and **** near forces Well, actually close to six rebounds and four assists with only a six minute, um, difference.
And, um, he upped his, uh, point total by by a few by three points, and he's averaged 16.
5 last few few games.
I mean, last game, let's just talk about the last game.
He had, like, 37 points.
And he was like talking to junkie had swag, you know? And he basically carried the on the Miami Heat to that to that on 31 you know, victory, you know, in their playoffs, use against against the Boston Celtics, and, you know, kudos to the kid, but it's really because of the kid, you know? You know, I really I really hate to thio to throw everybody else under the bus, you know? But that that's what they do.
Especially when you went on when you're a Knicks fan, they gonna throw your favorite player under the bus.
And, of course, who they throw on the bus immediately.
Out of all the other players that were drafted in, um, in in, uh, you know, just drafted like you want to Just you have to use our J as the, um you know, the the blacklist.
You have the blacklist.
Um, I have the at the lack of a better word, man.
Because, like I said, I'm trying not Thio play the race card when it comes to salary, because you got to give him his props.
Right? But, you know, R J you wanna talk about the draft and stuff like that r j it was It was always ah to man draft.
Uh, first of all, it was actually one man draft because R J was the one he was.
He's been the top of his class since he's been a little kid she's been in junior high school, has always been ranked number one out of all of the prospects in his age group.
And, you know, Zion came out of nowhere because of the dunks.
But then he goes Thio Duke, and go he go.
He went from just being, ah, you know, a dunker to now, this guy is actually a really good player.
So, um, some somehow Zion was ableto to surpass RJ, which surprised everybody.
So then it became a two man draft, And then, you know, this guy came out of nowhere from Memphis.
Uh, you know, and then he, uh he boosted himself up to make it make it a three man draft.
So r j got pushed again to the Thursday But that's not not not not to to.
His talent is just just, uh, Zion.
And you know, the other kids getting elevated, um, you know, above because of their play.
Now you want to talk about now? Let's Let's some Let's just talk about the the draft from from that year.
So this is 2018 draft.
I'll put it up on the screen so you guys can see it's on the 2019 drive.
So of course, we know there are generous drafted third because the Knicks had the third pick, man.
So, you know, like I said, was always a 33 men drive draft.
The Zion Williamson Williamson.
The second person was John Moran.
John Moran came out of nowhere.
You know, he was He was like, um, you know, he played on the same team I believe is Zion, you know, So both of those guys were underrated, and they both elevated themselves or whatever.
So I mean, that's this is the back story.
But I mean, RJ, like I said, R j was always the number one pick.
You know, since he was, like, a junior high school anyway, so that, you know, it ended up being, ah, three man draft and R.
J gets drafted third.
So I mean, you scroll down, you know, scroll down to let me see what you guys can see here.
Scroll down to two.
Tell a hero tell a hero right there is is highlighted.
Tell a hero was drafted. 13.
Let's look at who was drafted ahead of him.
You wanna talk about, uh, DeAndre Hunter uh uh.
You know Darius Garland.
You know Kobe White? You know, he got he got a little little props this year because he could he could score.
Really? Could score.
Um, who Chimura he actually had to go to.
Good season, Cam.
Nobody talks about Atlanta, so I mean, you know, like a camera Johnson PJ Washington, you know, quite has kept.
You know, a lot of these players in this, um 2018 drivers going.
Probably gonna go down as one of the better drafts.
Because you wanna look down at Brandon Clarke.
Brandy Clark had a good year.
Uh, you know, a couple other guys.
Um, there's some Alexander Walker is pretty good.
Um, uh, Seiko was pretty good.
You know, Is a bunch of guys in this travelers pretty good, even like in Washington.
I don't wanna knock any of these guys because, like I said, six months, man, six months since the end of the regular season two when the bubble started.
That's a lot of time to prepare.
So any of these kids could have had a breakout, um, you know, break out, showing if they were invited to the to the bubble, you know? So you know, back to back Thio Thio, Uh, our guy argue Barrett, you know, it's just it's just typical Knicks that every time somebody does well, uh, somebody has to come out and make the point.
The old the Knicks drafted the wrong person.
We drafted the wrong person.
But, man, we had the freaking third pick.
Like I said, it was a basically three people to choose from.
Like if we didn't If we didn't get, um, the one or two pick then R.
J was the third pick there was.
There was nothing else that we that we could really say off course like you could make the argument saying that, Yeah, if you like a guy, you pick whatever doesn't matter what what? Um, what? You know the draft marks.
You know, that's the stuff, Stays says.
But that's this whole fine and dandy until it happens to you.
Now you want to fast forward now to to the 2019 draft, assuming doesn't excuse me? The 2020 draft.
We got people out there talking about that, that the Knicks just draft, um, whatever.
You know, don't don't look for this.
Don't look for that.
Just draft best player available or they, you know, Are they saying, Oh, you know, they need to do this.
You need to get the big name they need to get a point guard.
You know, there's all the all these different things, right? But I mean, the next only drafting eighth.
You know, at the time here, we got the top three pick.
You have, like, you basically have to draft.
Um, you know, you know, draft the top, you know, top three. You can't.
You can't just on bypass the talent like RG Barry.
You know, before anybody plays an n b a game, you know, you're you know you know you know, you don't really know what they're gonna dio like Tyler hero.
Like there was a video that there's someone posted about the Miami Heat fan.
He was waiting for the UN from Miami to get called and they say Tyler here.
Who is this guy? Who is Tyler hero? Let me tell you, play for Kentucky and nobody cared about Tyler hero.
He got drafted behind classmate Peter Washington was actually his classmate, you know, and, you know, and truthfully, I don't I don't really, really remember watching Kentucky so much last year, you know, they were kind of under the radar or whatever, but this just goes to show you the testing.
You know how how good Tally Hero is, because even after all of that, you know, you know, he was able to elevate whatever, but I mean, he also got put on Miami Heat.
Miami has, like, you know, consistently like the best, like, um, staff.
And we were talking about coaching and from front office in basketball outside of San Antonio.
You know, you want to talk about the Lakers Lakers always Are they just lucky, man, you know, they have all kind of issues in their front office, but they always tend to be lucky with a lot of a lot of different moves and stuff.
But Miami is a hard nose.
Basketball on club man.
Ever since Petrelli got their Perelli got there instantly turned him into a playoff contender, and we battled them in the playoffs.
And then, while the Knicks were doing it up and down for, you know, during the Marbury years and understand the other Miami.
We build themselves twice.
You know, I'm saying that they went and got ah championship way the first time with Anton Walker and all these guys.
And then they rebuild again.
You know, got got a topic.
They didn't even use the topic and ended up getting LeBron and all this other stuff and starting another run.
Now they rebuilt again.
Now they have another young crew out there that this this doing well, So I mean, you know, the Miami Heat.
You know, you just tip your hat off to them and also to man, you gotta give respect to Thio, to tell a hero for for capitalizing on on that good fortune of being on that team.
Now, who's to say that that let's say if, if the Knicks were Miami Heat was in the next position, they were picking third.
Who would they have picked? But they have picked our hero.
No, they would have not.
They would have picked RG Barrett.
Still, you know, there's there's no no, no, just like, um, you know, they weren't in the in the market for a small forward at the time, you know, I'm saying so.
J Barrett would have been right up their alley because it would have been the type of player that they need.
Small, forward, kind of swing man kind of guy.
So I mean, you know, Miami Heat would have drafted RG Barry if they were in the same spot.
So the question is right.
If Miami Heat drafted RJ and then so let's say they didn't win.
Then they have a winning season.
Uh, you know, with with, you know, people would be saying, Oh, look, look, The Knicks drafted the person that Miami Heat, um, got no.
They would never say that because that narrative only plays out when it comes to the Knicks, you know? So even even, let's say, if they were winning, if they were winning with with RJ and the Knicks were winning with Charlie Hero, it just would be like a fluke or old.
You know, the Knicks were just bad, you know, that's that's the reason why, you know, just historically bad, just the same way.
Like like RJ got snubbed for this.
I'm all rookie team.
I mean, like I said, I already made the point that there was, like so many different draft people like I want to say, like the first, the 1st 13 up into the Tyler hero.
All those guys gonna be great.
But all these guys gonna be the future.
The MBA? Basically a lot. A lot of starters.
Ah, lot of starters in the top 13.
You wanna talk about Romeo Langford? Where we like for us? Another guy.
Like I said, Siku was pretty good.
Alexander Walker is pretty good.
You know, I'm not good with these guys.
Names he plays for.
Well, he got drafted by arm by Boston.
You wanna talk about Brandon Clarke? Like I said, Brendon Clarke is pretty good.
Uh, naturally, A little is good.
You know, there's a bunch of guys in that in that first round for the 2019 drafted that they're gonna have gone on to have great, great, if not pretty good careers, man.
So, you know, you can't You can't really knock it, man.
Yeah, but I just I just I just wish the native would change, man. It does.
It doesn't matter what we talk about.
The Knicks are always, um you are in the mix of Ah, just bad news all the time.
Can't tell a hero have a good, um, have a good showing.
Can he just have Ah, Cinderella on playoff front? Can he just be the young guy? Can he be like the Sam Cassell of 2020? You know, and just let him let him and let him live without throwing RG baron into the into the coals.
Doesn't make any sense, man, because **** sure, uh, six months, you know, quite sure r J.
Berry would have improved as well.
So let's see him.
Let's talk about that. Let's talk about RG Barrett.
So we're going to go to we're gonna go thio instagram and look the good This picture, man.
What our guy are you looking looking, Jack? You know, I'm saying this is what happens with six months.
Six if if you know how to work out and whatever, you can really change your body in three months.
You can really change your body from being completely out of shape to being, you know, in shape. Kinda.
You know, So an n b a player that's already in immaculate shape to begin with.
And they have, you know, stuff that they they want to improve on.
You give that person six months, they're gonna they're gonna really improve themselves, especially if they're focused and have nothing but time.
Which these, um that's what players have.
It's not like they have, you know, like like a city job where they got a driver ambulance for, like, you know, 12 hours or walk the beat.
You know, somewhere as a police officer for 12 hours, you know, are being somebody's jail or anything.
You just run down the line, you know, and then still have to be a top top athlete.
No, this this this is their job, their professional athletes.
So this is what they're doing.
So give these guys six months and look what happened then.
Look, RJ, man, he looks like a whole different dude, man.
Um, you know, cameras, you know, cameras and all that stuff Can it can really, um, make someone look exaggerated, you know, but but, I mean, you can't really fake that man.
The guys very, very strong vascular.
You know, you could see even even its legs.
You got a little extra strength in his legs.
That's what you like to see.
But that's something That's just exactly what happened to Tyler. Hero.
So I just want to take a peek again at at this instagram feed, because, I mean, the New York Knicks has been doing a great job with his instagram feed.
So I mean, you know, you could just look at all these different pictures, like, I mean, like, um, the recent pictures with, uh, with the coaching staff Tom Thibodeau and the guys.
That's been incredible, I believe.
Is this this post here? The school here.
This is the kind of cut off they cut off our boy that the kid Bryant from Utah.
They cut him off, but he was also staring to their They were actually looking at Kevin Knox, you know? And I mean, look at Kenny pains face.
He really looks like major pain, you know? And you know, Woody, you know, everybody knows Woody and my man, Tom Thibodeau.
He looks he looks kind of fit for for do this in the sixties.
I know. We gotta know.
They all got the gut, but otherwise they look pretty healthy.
To tell you the truth, that's good to see.
Man. So I mean, everybody's focus. Everybody seems to be on the same page.
Their their body language, Uh, in these pictures on instagram they they tend Thio Thio show like like unity, really the focus of the coaches that they all got the same energy.
And that's all you can can hope for, um, this time, cause I mean, we'll have nothing else to hope for.
And, you know, outside of that, let's some Let's look at this man.
They're just just a, you know, workout montage.
This is, um, uh, Dennis Smith Juniors first video, and that's actually posted by the Knicks.
So that's got to tell you right there that they probably told him, Listen no more, no video for the summer for this on break.
And then you just do your thing and practice, and then you know, when it's time you get to show it, You know? So you know, since we're looking at Dennis Smith Jr here, man, let's let's just talk about it, man. Dennis Smith Jr.
Before he got to the Knicks, he was averaging 12 points a game. He was averaging.
Um, you know, uh, what do you want to say? He was averaging 12 points a game.
He's done that already has done it, you know, enough in his only even when he came to the Knicks.
But he came to the Knicks after the trade.
He actually did average 15 points a game.
So what happened to him that they went from 15 points a game to single digits? You know, and, um, it's a It's a plethora of things.
It could be just the family stuff.
It could be a lot of different things, like like like I said.
But like I said, wear, we give guys six months And what could the next do it at this, Um, a point in time.
So I mean, you know, you know, this is still the same season, but this is actually the second season because right now is we're talking about the end of September, about to be, um, October.
We should be getting into training camp for the next season right now, not not just finishing off the MBA season.
So everything is going to get all messed up, man, because, like like like I said, um, this six months thing.
You know, the six month thing.
There's a lot of training that that that that could be done during six months, you know, So, like after the season is over, So you wanna you wanna say, maybe, like in the beginning of October or so the season will be over so October you want to October, November, December, January, February.
It will be like another four months.
So that's like another season.
You know that there's something that's coming up.
So all this extra training that these players are these young players are getting is nothing, but it's just good for them because they get a chance to train, you know, um, you know, take it easy on their on their body.
They don't have to be traveling.
They don't have to keep wearing and tearing with back to back games and all this other stuff practice and stuff like that that they could just train with themselves.
And I'll just get better, you know.
And that's how that's how you keep get your legs strong.
That's how you get your your upper body strong.
That's how you perfect certain things in your game so this.
Um, all these all these layoffs could actually be something good for for our Knicks.
So I I just hope so, man, because you wanna look down the roster.
The Knicks roster is is filled with just a bunch of young players.
Man, Uh, let's see.
Let's see if you're gonna pull that up with the New York Knicks.
She had a screen again.
And let's just look, look at the next current roster.
You know, I'm like, I'm talking about Dennis Smith Jr right now.
Already already talked about RG Barrett.
But, um, we can we can really talk about We could really talk about just the whole team in general because every single player you know, another guy that's in my mind right now is, um, is Frank Neil Akina? You know, you've seen more videos of him this summer than than than anybody on the team, Really? So, like I said, I I feel like the Knicks have really taken control of what's being put out there.
It's visually for the fantasy, because I I believe that they're finally understanding that that we can't really out of lack of a better term **** with, um, the New York City media anymore.
Or just ESPN media.
Just the world media in general, they have thio dictate their own narrative.
And they've done a great job in this little six month break.
You know, before the bubble, they've done a great job with that.
Like I said, they brought in, Um, they reined in Dennis Smith, Jr.
You know, And, um now they're they're pushing Frank, you know, trying to get him out there Thio to get everyone excited.
And just to see that that he is working, you know, Thio tryto build that positivity, man.
I think that's all important.
So I mean, like, there's some names here l for paid, and these guys were on non guaranteed contracts.
Marcus, um, Harkless is on a non guaranteed Bullock is on a non guarantee.
Who else? Down here.
Wayne Ellington is on the non guaranteed.
Um, they already wave trailer because he was in a non guarantee and Kadeem Allen was traded.
Uh, you know, for for Jared Allen.
I'm Jared Harper.
You know Damian Dawson? He can He could be way too.
He's on. He's on a minimum contract.
Taj Gibson, I I'm not sure if I remember mentioned him, but he's also on non guaranteed contract.
So if you're gonna get this cat space, you could just take all those non guaranteed contract off the books straight up.
Um, you know, and you just go down the line here, you know? It's so so much.
Um, like potential.
Like Mitchell Robinson.
You're seeing the jump shot.
So you hope to see the jump shot being implemented.
One guy that that really excites me is, um Ignace Brassicas.
Now our guy Ignace Man, we actually need Ben scoring.
We just need scoring in general, man, So I could see Iggy.
Iggy Brexit Brexit is making, ah, big time contribution this year just for the simple fact that we're gonna get rid of some of the different players.
Like, you know, way am saw a lot of more Mo Harkless.
Ah, who else? Uh, we saw it.
We saw a lot of Reggie Bullock, so I mean, there's there's a spot open there.
Um, if you could come in there and take Reggie Bullock spot or he could take a more heartless spot, you know? So this is all exciting stuff, man.
And then I'm like Like I said, we were in the market for point guards, so you might end up signing somebody so that that doesn't mean the death of said, Well, that's that's That's not really, really a good term, you know, toe to you after after beginning of this episode.
But you know, D S J and Frank, they still have an important role in this because you could still throw Frank at the two guard because he's tall and you can even throw D S J.
They're in there at the two guard as well.
Man, if if you can get a scoring together doesn't necessarily have to be the jump shot, he could be able Thio to mix it up and do the in between kind of game.
I just use his athleticism because, you know, I found out the other day when I realized that Jonathan Mitchell was only 6 ft one and Dennis Smith for 6 ft three.
So, you know, if he plays it at the at the two, you can't say that he's undersides because Donovan Mitchell is like part of like, the best shooting guard in the NBA right now.
Yeah, I'm an *******.
Anyway, just some running down the line there.
Everyone is watching this podcast on the on live.
It's on Facebook.
It's on Twitter, and it's also a SportsCastr.
So, um, you know, I'm not I'm not looking at sportscasting now.
Every time, every time I tried to to look at SportsCastr, always mess up and and the getting, like, some heavy feedback or whatever.
So I'm gonna attempt at it now because, you know, SportsCastr, you guys typically show me a lot of love on here.
So I just want to make sure that that I shot you guys out.
So I started off the podcast talking about Briana Taylor, So I know that was That was tough, man, you know? But it's like almost there we can We can just accept it, because, I mean, that's this.
This what's gonna happen? Like? Like like I said, the people on the streets on the street level, at least in New York, Um, they really, um you know, from from my perspective, being in New York, they they've really, um, changed a lot, man, because when whenever they had these protests and whatever.
You didn't really see a lot of other people, you know, other races and stuff and these type of protests, you always saw just just, you know, black and Spanish, you know, doing doing their thing.
But, you know, I think it's I think it's very important now to just to point out that people, um, you know, of all races and then now you when you get to get to these protests, you know, cause I I want to say, like, black and Spanish, whatever we were really like defeated already.
But it's great to see that all these other ethnicities air coming to the forefront, letting people know that they they're tired of it too, you know? So that that's very important, man.
So I want everyone to be encouraged by everything that's happening, you know? And just don't let don't let this whole thing we don't bring on the tail or tell you up, man.
Tell you down and to the point where you can't can't function anymore.
Man, I feel like the world is getting better.
Um, it's not going to get to the point where where we're gonna we're gonna see change in and, um, you know, and government, But maybe our kids or grandkids might, you know.
So those out there that are fighting the fight on the on the ground and you guys were gonna go down in history as I'm the generation that that took the next step to get everybody together, man.
So I just want to say, What's up, Thio? SportsCastr.
We got looking here.
He's here looking around.
He dropped me, Um, 20 tickets.
I appreciate you.
We got Galaxy fan.
We got paste me, Austin, we got will degrade.
Well, the great started following me.
Who has followed me here in this? This thing here, um, just well, the great well, the great Also send 100 tickets, man.
So I appreciate you guys for for tuning in and also giving these tickets, man, because he's tickets are are good.
You know, it's always great to get tickets, man.
So anyway, that's my two cents with this whole thing, you know, shout out to Tyler, hero.
Like I said, there's no no racism and, like, I don't wanna you know, it's on the tip of everybody's tongue.
They wanted They want to say uh, because Because if somebody like, like Stephen A.
Smith already ripped the scab off already saying that the reason why Steve Nash got the job because of white privilege.
You know, you wanna talk about Tyler hero getting all this accolades, and then out of nowhere, you want to **** on RG Barry for no reason? You know what I'm saying? You want to call that white privilege? You know, I'm saying I'm quite sure somebody's gonna try to pull that pull that, but I'm not gonna pull it.
Even though I said it and I put it out there, you know, bro, that's all needs to be said.
Racism ends with me.
Uh, you know, I just hope I hope that that can continue to to radiate through the universe, man.
We just We just need to get better as people.
Things were changing.
We really need to stay together.
So, anyway, this is, um, really any star host of Dinos podcast.
As I end the podcast, I always like to say, Put four fingers to before I took in your thumb salute.
Uh, let's Let's get this out of here.
