Listen: Knicks, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis discussed on First Things First
"They get knocked out. They they could never build a team around him except for that one year when they made the Western Conference finals of Minnesota. Here's a trade. That would work. Just so people know Kevin knocks Frankie Miller kina, Tim Hardaway junior and your lottery pick for Anthony Davis that that trade works and you've. Well, I don't think. So that's the thing is you would the Knicks even offer up Zion. Williamson I wouldn't I would offer up Zion. Just for the record zion's. I love Anthony Davis. I would if I'm the Knicks, and I have the option to get him in this city. I don't but if I get the second pick, and it's RJ Barrett. The third pick, and it's our kid John rant like I would offer those guys if they win the lottery, I don't know that any team's gonna offer up that pin. I would offer it if I'm Scott Perry. I know Scott, Perry know, Scott Perry will I do believe this period does have significant relationships in basketball going to attract someone to the Knicks. The Knicks haven't been that attractive for a long long time. He does have Intel he does have a relationship with Kevin Durant. He was part of the management team in Seattle when Kevin Durant got drafted it. Also, those first couple years Scott Perry was one of the people who had a relationship with Kevin Durant there in help do things for him. So I. Think Kevin Durant fills very very comfortable f you have kristap still available on the franchise. You also have kyri behind the scenes he is a jersey kid. He would like to play in New York City in the garden. So I just believe with the new hierarchy that they have for the Knicks. They have a couple of things in place that make the Knicks far more attractive than they have it. How is it not explained this to me? How's it not a conflict of interest to have, you know, obviously, LeBron James with love the brow to come to LA house on comedy just have clutch representing both of them. And then you know, what I think I'm gonna go to really glad I'm really glad you asked that because this is going to become as we find different angles talk about the Anthony Davis story discussion point, which is the influence of Rich, Paul and club sports. I want people to understand this. This is how business has been done in the NBA forever. David full helped run the NBA when he was repping. Michael Jordan had that much influenced Dan Fagin once upon a time, Dan Fagin. Was rep and Dwight Howard Chandler Parsons, the rockets wanted to white Howard, Dan vague. Instead, I will steer him to you or away from you based on will you let Chandler Parsons out of his contract next year. Major league baseball boroughs. They just how it's done. It's it's normal business. It's normal. And by the way, the rockets and Chandler Dwight will all deny that that happened. It definitely happened. The so here's here's the reason. I bring it up. All what no issue for anybody till all of a sudden, it's Rich Paul LeBrun. Like, we've always had agents as puppet masters in the league and people just accept it. Rich, Paul and club sports, they became an agency and a little bit of a different way. They're run a little bit of a different way. And people don't like the influence that group that age demographic how they came up is having encroaching on what had been other people's turf. But this is how business is done in the NBA and has been for as long as I've been alive. All right coming up this Shawn Watson joins the show. That's next. First things first.
