"We had some big news that broke in the NBA on Tuesday afternoon after we went off air and that is one of the most desirable head coaching jobs in the League of the Chicago Bulls with their young talent. With a new front office scale, they found their head coach. It was an experienced veteran who won sixty percent of his games over the five years. He was the head coach of Oklahoma City, and that is billy Donovan scall- getting head coach of the bowls on Tuesday afternoon scale. What was your reaction when you heard the news that billy dee is going to be the headman for the bolts and I don't. Think about all that I have I'm not good with that type of stuff and I don't WanNa see here and B. M. B. S. The people I don't know what makes a good coach a certain situation I don't know what he did it Oklahoma City where when you had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and Katie left in it. It's just it's just a lot of variable. I know this year they were great day overachieved and he was great for. Them but I do know they also turn the keys over to cruise pause at went. But so I wish him the best I I don't I don't know what's which is even the benchmark look like for Success in Chicago I'm not even sure what I i. if I understand that I'm not even sure I understand their roster of if how good they can possibly be like a lot of guys under team. So I'd be lying if I told you all man. Shares he's going to do so good I don't I don't know any of those things. We'll see he did win sixty plus percent of his games out of the four hundred koshen. Okay. See he had an eighteen and twenty three record in the playoffs as team went to the Western Conference finals in year one when he had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook of what they did not win a series after that any inherits a very young but my opinion relatively talented young team in Chicago So kudos to billy dee in the front office Chicago for a after a long exhaustive process finally getting their guy scale. Here's some of the other candidates that were interviewed by according to Marc Spears also according to my sources in the front. Office as well. Are they talked to Stephen Silas Jamal. Moseley Dan Craig Kenny Atkinson Gironde Collins Yodok David Vander Pool West Junior Darvin Ham and Chris Fleming who is there assistance assistant so they had a pretty long exhaustive search I. Think the search pivoted when Billy Donovan became available. That was something that was maybe unforeseen, and now he's going to get a chance where they knew front office to lead the Bulls and try to get them back into the playoffs. Gal. On because Chicago has been the second worst team in the NBA Ed only the New York Knicks in terms of the record over the last three years.

New York Knicks hiring Tom Thibodeau as next head coach
"So Tom Thibodeau is gonna be the head coach of the next. Here's our guy. Stephen A. Smith, Our first take host was on return to the MBA, and he discussed the positives and negatives. Of the Knicks hiring Fido. Nevertheless, nobody can argue that Davidow has the most successful resume it available coaches that one open market he's one about 59% of the games. You know the job you did in Chicago. We noted he sold it to the postseason first time in like a decade for like, 13 years. We know that he's with one could easily argue whether not Doc Rivers would be a champion as a head coach had it not been for top Thibodeau being his assistant. In Boston back in 2008. So all of those things come with He's got an incredible reputation. Terms of knowing the game of basketball of the entire Lesley committed to the game of back, eat, lives and breathes basketball day and night. Um and you combine that with the fact that again either defense with it, though, that a pluses minuses. The fact that in Chicago there were issues with Paxson and guard form in the general manager In Minnesota. There was an issue with the owner, Glen Taylor, and management, along with the fact that Jimmy Butler wanted to be traded went off Thibodeau, his former coach in Chicago, by the way. Was his president of basketball operations and to coach in Minnesota. And so as a result, you've got a home and believe that Tom Thibodeau has made the necessary adjustments. He's seen the error of his ways. Some respect player relations. And even relations with management and that this is a good deal because I'm here and it's a three year deal. Garrity fully guarantee the other two years, a partial guarantee in excess of about for $4 million. But in the end It seems to be a match made in heaven.

Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

Tracy Anderson - Fitness Pioneer
"I'm Tracy Anderson. I created the Tracy Anderson fitness method. And I am a mom of two. You can find me at Tracy Anderson Dot Com and you can follow me at Tracy Anderson method. What is your workout? I mean everybody knows your name and not everybody might know they're like wow this really great workout. And maybe they feel like they don't have access to it or they don't know exactly what it is but they know that tons leverage are obsessed with tons of people are obsessed with it. And what's the? What is the philosophy? How did you develop it? And why is it taken off so much? So kind of you It the philosophy is that I. My mission is to continuously create balance where there's imbalanced in specifically in women's bodies. It does work great for men but all of my studies have been done on women so I don't feel like it's fair to say that I really know what I'm doing with any man quite honestly so I I went to college on a dance. Scholarship and I gained forty pounds at school for dance and My Dad has fought. He's battled obesity is whole life and my mom was a beautiful. Prima Ballerina and my genetics. Just weren't my mom's once I hit you know. Nineteen twenty twenty one and I felt ashamed in a lot of ways like I felt like this is unfair that I have to be. I'm barely five feet tall in a black leotard and pink tights and I'm like gaining weight and instructors are literally looking at me like why the officially in my class right now. And how does she have a scholarship kind of thing because of the way that I looked like I had some teachers like you have so much talent but like just don't have the body and so I felt like that was really unfair? Yeah so I really focused on Choreography. And I was like you know what I'll be behind the scenes all all learn really all of the elements of craigie really strong Sorry what was what was creating the waking though if you're working out all the time it doesn't matter if people work out all the time quite frankly just because you work out all the time does not mean you're going to make weight and come back in a heartbeat for sure and eat bagging heartbeat but also everybody's metabolic rate is completely unique and completely different. How we store fat. How we need fat. How we How stress affects us like there are so many factors that affect our engines as women too. I mean and our right to dress their children whether we want to have them or not like. It's just a human you know it's part of our system and how that system works for each of us is actually shockingly unique and wait has a lot to do with it. And I think that a lot of people when you're genetically predisposed to certain metabolic rate and you try really hard to fight at our becomes something else you can do a lot of damage to your body and your psyche on a lot of levels and so this is why. It's very important for people to know that my is about creating balance where there's imbalance in anyone's unique body. It doesn't mean I am trying to make you into a teeny tiny dancer or into somebody that you're not so it the I think the passion and the spark for me started then because the counselors it at my school. Where like you know you need to eat less and just eat? Sinoe or like you know your roommates. Do Coke every night. Maybe join them. You know like really know and I just you know for whatever reason my mom I I was raised in a way that thank goodness I never had an eating disorder. I it was never an option or a consideration for me and I never did drugs. I wasn't like in me to do it right I do drink though that anyway so I I felt the I felt what it felt like to not be able to get your body to be something else in a healthy way and I. My mom worked three jobs to put me through school and I had an I joined crunch. I I did pilates with Ron Fletcher. And I was like. She was like scraping. Pennies together. Knows a distinct. How pilates is going to help me if I do step aerobics. And this and that an and nothing would change my body to where I mean. Sure like fitness. When you're working out you feel good. A lot of things can happen but and I was a really good performer. Too so a lot of people. I think in fitness because they can't perform really well. They don't get the calorie spend that you would need to actually start burning real fat so the Diet and the workout have to go so so closely intertwined you know anyway so I tried all these things and then I MY SON. Who's twenty one? his dad played for the New York Knicks? And he was like I love your booty. I don't know why you need to be like. Let's have babies and I'm like yeah. Why always wanted to be a mom that was given and coming from Indiana? We've become moms at twenty three. Because that's what I and but actually it was such a gift because Eric you know when you play for the New York Knicks. If you have an injury you get the best treatment and the entire world. So he was sent we. I spent my pregnancy with Salmon Puerto Rico and with this league that he was rehabbing his back with and I met an incredible incredible doctor who was so passionate about sports and he was like Have you seen Concussion with will Smith Gasoline. Okay so the only difference between will Smith's character in that and finding that protection for NFL players was Desai was an avid basketball fan avid. And he was like these guys are going to end up in Lisi boy recliners for the rest of their lives. No one's thinking about their spines. You know there's a better way to train for the to support their spines BUBBA and I was like I was either going to rescue all of the homeless animals in Puerto Rico or I was going to figure out how to help this guy and I went to his little clinic every day and He had done a mind blowing research on the inner spine muscles. And how the brain is connected and how you don't have to to like if you go. After the transitional muscles in a healthy way like and all the strategic muscle exhaustion. And it's miraculous what we can do and it made so much sense to me because I was like well man if we can make ourselves freakishly large like these bodybuilders. Do or or then I went. I dissect it literally every pro sports like speedskaters for the Olympics or runners. Long distance runners. If you look at people at the top of their game their bodies start to look very similar. Because you're calling to action the same kind of muscles and if you've got that willpower behind it you can really do incredible things with your body. So I studied with him this whole time and I started creating the choreography to support his science and I was like this is incredible and I said wait a minute. Why are we stopping at the back? If you can do this for the back why. Why can't we create this kind of balance and symmetry for the whole body? And he's like no one's ever gonNA come up without much content and I was like I fully em and then I. I did a five year. Study on one hundred and fifty women that I went to Indiana University. I was like how do I do a study? How do I didn't know how to do things and I think one of the things that so corrupt about the fitness industry? Today is that people and I hate to even think that I would be part of this problem which is why I stopped training. Celebrities years ago I literally was like I'm not even higher help oversee their programming come to the gym just like every body else not because I don't love them as people or or what they can. The kind of awareness they can bring forward is so great too. It's because it sends a toxic message to everyone out there that you should want to do what they want to do. Because you want to be them instead of wanting to do what's right for your own health and your own body and In the industry now people think if there they can move or they look good and they get a celebrity all of a sudden they have a method. And I'm like you got method. You gotTA fitness met. The how'd you get word that words all that like research research and I know what it took me and how I was just think naturally without without my ego attached to it because I really didn't think I have permission to be doing this. I just wanted to go back to schools like juilliard or whatever and go. Here's a program you can give these girls where they're not stuffing suppositories up their bum at night and bleeding like you know like it's terrible. It's terrible environment and it's really toxic and So I did the five. You're studying throughout the five year study. I had asked one question.

I. P. entrance which is on thirty first St Michael Lee he claims but that was never told to it and this is something he claims he's done for thirty years going through this entrance so let's hear Spike Lee on first take earlier today was Stephen A. and Max Kellerman and Molly telling his side of the story with the whole MSG confrontation I've been using the same entrance the twenty plus years employees enters on three third street yesterday last night I go in my ticket is scanned I'm it I would you know the elevator yes one elevator and elevator also people have the tickets can also and L. is not moving and the security guy called me said we need to get off the elevator I said for what so we could speak about a NASA might get not elevator so no five minutes then they probably sent Elliott because they know I'm not do not elevator get on the elevator other groups of five and screamed waking life is run on a bases still soft and they said security guy all this comes to the top do you want me to leave the garden walk outside data out the thirty third street employers what came from walk outside and come back on thirty first St I somebody doing a personable you scanned my ticket you can scan and check it twice also I noticed once you leave the sport arena event you can't come back to it so I don't trust these guys so I'm not going to help you dork so I said I'm not leaving I put my hands behind my back and I sit or rest me like my brother Charles Oakley do we really need to get our rescue because you're refusing to leave like Spike Lee I don't think that's going to end up what happening spike Lee's gonna be dry data there and hand comes out but you know we talked about how they scanned his ticket so sincerity scanned his ticket no matter who you believe in this he said you know she said I owe you know they'd they'd never told me to go to this other engines they did tell me to go to the dentist about who you believe is the easy way to defuse the situation we already scanned your ticket spike in future you know moments when you come into the guard in future times you need to now go to the thirty first street next time you do this because I'm assuming it's similar security guard night in and night out I just my experience is going in there to see the same security guards we won't scan your ticket again I'm gonna tell you to go to that entrance it's all they had to do and then he also goes on first take and says he didn't shake this is my third did not believe Spike Lee totally he says he didn't shake Dolan sand and then the next because when they confront each other halftime the next up to be so badly they can never just let something blow over the New York Knicks then released a photo as it don't put someone up in the three hundred section looks at the blue seats and Adam shoot down on this sort of situation the photo kinda looks like that Spike Lee at his hand down to his side and then all the sudden don't basically picked it up it looks like a forced hand shake but regardless there's a photo of them shaking each other's hand regardless of who is it shouldn't be a story you just introduce your new president Leon rose you beat the rockets but the next can never let a story just go

"Norlander is here with me and let's keep this simple and get right into Leon. Rose is about to be run in the New York. Knicks William Wesley Worldwide. West will likely join him in the front office. Those two men have deep in strong longstanding ties to John Calipari so norlander Kentucky fans be worried that John Calipari is GonNa be the next head coach of of the New York knickerbockers. nope this will not happen. John Calipari as director short as possible. John Cale Perry signed a lifetime. Contract contract in two thousand nineteen obviously desperately wants to get out of that sure that can happen the deal worth what ten million ten years a a lot. More than ten million I can assure you that What about eighty six million overall? I think was the report when it came out in June of last year. I understand that these men then are are friendly with John Calipari and know him well he is not leaving Kentucky to coach. The next that will not be happening. We go through this almost every year. These diff- details are yes. Indeed a little bit different. The idea of worldwide west working for the next bizarre and I guess impacts is ability to show up at recruiting events which he has done with plenty of frequency over the years including recently but no. This will not be what happens. John Calipari Will Be Coaching Kentucky. In twenty twenty twenty twenty one twenty twenty two twenty twenty three twenty twenty four. And I'M GONNA say till at least twenty twenty-five he's not going to the next. Don't tell me that you think otherwise. No I agree. I don't think he's going to the New York Knicks but I could understand why he would at least consider it. I can understand why you would. At least I think about it if they genuinely wanted to hire you and by the way people are connecting the dots that Leon Rose and John Honor tight that West and John are tight. That doesn't necessarily mean that they would want him to coach their MBA franchise. Like I got plenty of friends. I'm tight with. I don't don't necessarily want them to work at a radio station with me or at. CBS Sports with me. So one doesn't necessarily lead you to the next but they are super title like I've I don't want to pretend like I know Leon rose. Well I don't but I have known Leon rose for maybe twenty years now because when when the Memphis beat writer very young. You know I'd be in the center. Which is the old Memphis practice facility? And and sometimes the only three people in the building that weren't officially connected to the program would be just sitting there in chairs up against the walk. Me Leon Rose and William. Wesley like Leon was tight. Ayako into the next pairs. Are you going to the Knicks right. Now they're going to people. People started speculating about me joining the are you going to join. The Front Office of the next. Is that what this podcast is. That's why we're starting like this. People have for the past twenty four hours been like listen. John Kerry's known Leon Rose and West for twenty years. What goes? He's probably going to coach the Knicks I to have no Leeann Liane rose and West for twenty years I used to sit in the fence sitter with them. Just Me Leon. I would love to work for the Knicks. It would cut down on my travel. I could move there.

"One is that among the players. I've covered intersected with at times over the last twenty years. He's one of these guys whose juice just uniquely intimidating because of his height complete because of persona and a half and he's just got a bit a little bit of love hate with the meteorite so short with us so as you phenomenal with another times a little bit ordinary. He can't be. How did you guys find as Knicks fans who? I know you've been written you. You didn't exactly like Kevin Garnett hate weird because it's like a soon as we got on the phone we we couldn't get off. You realize he was the most incredible storyteller tells you these shapes things out in like almost must three dimensions and put shape to the story which is unbelievable acting an incentive but it was shaped to a story knowing reading the room is ending and then we kind of a natural inclination. Yes for sure thing that we also noticed okay. This was put on. He'd like we found recently loved wrestling so he was feeding off the energy of the crowd in a way that oh he was yes he was using us for his own passion which I guess is hard but at the same time you see who he is and wasn't my guess true. I don't know he he's he's he's always going to be fighting for himself and for his team. I think Kevin is you know. I think now having gotten to know him. He's such an honest person really honest and I think he's honest with himself emotionally and he's had a really crazy story. His life story is is is crazy and making lenny. Cooke was was such important process for us. I mean that was the film that made him WanNa work with us And you know what it did is a humanized players players for us because the players are so you know that they're aggrandize because you can never. I'm now thirty five years old. I'm now I can't even like players to me are older than me even though like some of these guys. RJR Nineteen. I still look up to him and you know I never get rid of that and I and I'm wondering when that we'll be when I'll start to look at this kid. You know what I mean. You hear older generations of this kid in the league. I don't think I'll ever have that because players are such on pedestals for me. They are gods. Gods so and Lenny Cooke in particular with Lebron James. That movie made me a Lebron Fan because going into the movie he was so vilified with the move to the heat right but I was but what making that movie I realized the amount of measure the NBA players out of control. I mean it really is difficult and the noise around the player so when I when we met Kevin we talked with him I came in with lots of pre preconceived preconceived notions like I hated him. He's the player who came in and made us fool. Made US fools in the garden. He had no respect for the for the garden. He had no respect for our franchise and he would would just come in and just destroy us all the time when he was in timber wolves every time and but particularly on as a Celtic and Yeah he was just so he he's. He's funny he's also funny and use and and he's famously. I mean he's got first ballot hall of fame nomination. He's he is. Such an honest is player. Heat player empowerment. I think the young players in the league now look at him like I told the truth and I think he'll never not tell the truth and that's what makes him so interesting. They said a few a pretty Simmons opening statements. That's him he'll say he's not afraid. He told a story once where he pointed at. MJ and said you're an owner. And and why are you acting this way and I was just like Whoa. WHOA did you find? Once I started the process or just starting filming did that intimidation kind of fall away or were there moments onset. We're your we're you're still dealing with that. He's still elusive. I would text him and I wouldn't get a text back before like two days before the shoot being trying to send him some more like you know but as director you you get people into the vibe. And he wouldn't respond Kevin's the cages not responding. But then he shows up on set and he's you know. He was so focused August. He was never on his phone. You know and most people sit on. He was so present and open. I WANNA learn this. I don't know how to do this. Teach me and that was unbelievable. That person of his stature is coming in like that Sinn credible I I look by the time we was over the first time I I saw among the things as I came away with I'd never seen any of of of Adam Sandler's dramatic roles so I am. I really got to see him do that. And I was blown away by by Sandler. I was blown away by K. G. and I thought there's actually enough there that you could see where he could play. Non Kevin Garnett roll down the right. It'll be hard because we recognize the great in the movie. The rim the remake of Blade aide. Imagine him as a vampire missing. Yeah no I keep telling empire in history it would be so awesome no but you can imagine tall empire he. The thing is is like people on set were so shocked. They couldn't believe what was going on. I wasn't an actor who became a basketball player. He's also we already knew all the superstitions about him so he fit the character really well because of the character had to be superstitious about the black opal. And it's and it's it's It's so we know the pre-game routines with everything everything else. Did he do anything like that. In as an actor was banging his head against like the direct you know but he did call me coach. He called me coach. Yeah coach he goes. Yeah you're the coach. That's the playbook point of the script and goes and this is the game and yeah just about this said comparison between basketball and filmmaking was something that was like Oh my God this is amazing to hear from his point point of view because yeah he just broke it all into the new there was so there was a play that dock designed around his acting abilities and it was designed for Pierce and the whole play predicate. I asked Dhaka's doctor. Some voice work in the movie I said. Did you knew it was an actress that I did. I don't play designed for him. It was coming out of the huddle. He had to just act cocky like he was the guy getting the the final shot and the beauty of Docs team. You could go to Pierce Allen or you know what I mean or K. G.. So he he had to Akaki get DABS from everybody and then right as as they're breaking in the play he had to clap right and the clapping was the the selling of the play and and NCAA Kevin was down for the everything else but when it came to clapping he felt foolish. Always overacting but he did it and then he didn't work and then you gotTa Clap Louder Five more more and more than he caught three times everyone gravitated. Of course Kevin Left Pierce alone game winner so I mean in terms of like rituals that you do on set. He was a lot of his scenes before we he started doing seen solo without Leuke stanfield when he was acting with Keith the standards and incredible actor and he had he would do these things. Keith would kind of improvise these actions. That happened before the scene begins. And he would just start improvising them. BEF- like can tell how we're GONNA start rolling soon. And that was you know I hadn't ever seen an actor do something like that before and Kevin picked up on it really quickly so then when Keith wasn't around Kevin Having started doing that with Sandler and these realize this guy's a lightening fast learner. He really is when the he also did want. He wanted to go very fast. You know he didn't he when we were going he wanted. One is just keep it going keep going keep going like if they're very little breaks in between his. I didn't go into his trailer ever so I don't know if he had some superstitions. Who's going on there? But we did there. Is I remember. When we shot the the post game at the end he would walk off to the side and he would be like winning writing he would get really angry if he screw up a take? Thank you would take a sixty two pack a bottle of water and he would just walk up to the thing open one up and just squeeze it in water would fly everywhere he would just roll the water around her dump it all over his head and he would just be screaming and I'd walk up to him and you know his K. G. Intense K. G. knew he had to get into game mode and that was actually the best because he was doing a little bit of alternate history there because like when he was talking about the whole. Yeah you know like I think we still got a lot on the tank. You know maybe win another ring and it was interesting to go through that. I'm I am a few quick ones here again. No no major spoiler here on plot points folks so if you haven't seen it it'll be all right but he does have to basically put up his championship championship. Ring as collateral would cagey in real life. Never ever do that wherever where ring because you need to have to to where it's always in a safe right so I saw that he said that I I buy that. I believe that I'd never seen him. I cannot imagine I'm actually putting it up for the two rings. There's that won the two thousand eight Celtics Ring The nineteen seventy-three Nick Serena that Howard Ratner's Sanders Those are both replicas. According to Zach Lowe's reporting as through earn railway we we we just saw the the real one at the Celtics screaming we had had owner. showed us the real ones. It's x Ray on my podcast. A while back he brought in all of his rings to well. He's got three made in the case to our. Yeah and it's Day are I mean they're they're incredibly heavy there amazing. I don't know I would be far. It is very very religious. They've gotten someone museum. Show of the history of the Knicks. One is big. The seventy one is big. But it's like yeah you can you can see somebody wearing the the Celtics won it really. Actually when Kevin Wears it is.
"new york knicks" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"My God really works Ramona. It doesn't make sense so the painting painting his legitimacy the baby maybe is the Knicks. Yeah I don't know who Jim Dolan is in this metaphor but he does appear to be the common dominator in all of this misery right over two decades since he's been the owner. New York has the worst winning percentage of any team in the NBA. I mean it's just purely the through line in all of this coaching being misery. Yeah that's a through line and like I think what's hard for Dole and to understand is that he is not he actually has stopped meddling as much he has stayed out of it. He's he's off playing with his band. His focus is not entirely on the next right now. which if you're a knicks fan and that's good you know one? Jim Dolan completely focused on the next. You want him to be focused elsewhere. But he can't quite step all all the way away and in those moments where he does Rian Reinsert himself into the conversation and into what the Knicks doing it has this effect of ruining everything rate so the radio interview where he goes and boasts about how stuff we hear stuff around the league and we hear from people people all the time right from players from you know representatives this about who wants to come the the. We can't respond because of the NBA rules and Cetera. But that doesn't stop him from telling us the end they do. The the and I can tell you from what we've heard. I think we're going to have of a very successful off season when it comes to free agents kill them. They're still recovering from this idea. That they completely oversold their chances and free agency and totally under delivered like their expectations. Were so wild in free agency. They have a chance to get Kevin Durant. He's injured and instead of just just saying we love you. Kevin no matter what you got a five-year Max Offer Jim. Dylan's I've been burned before on these injuries. You know I'm still paying without Amari stoudamire thing. And he doesn't allow Scott. Perry Steve Mills offer him the five-year Max. Now you and I both know that he probably goes to Brooklyn Anyway. But you don't even get a meeting if if you're not willing to offer the contract then this year ten games in his front office is like you know. Ten Games was in you. Don't go hold a press conference like this but Jim Dolan says get out there. Show a sense of urgency and it just starts the clock. vidale completely do stabilizes the franchise these are not big acts but they are important ones and they're the they're they're the common through line and denominator of why he even when he's trying to stay a out of it he simply can't help himself and whatever he touches it whenever he goes back and it all falls apart. Mike Miller gets the extreme privilege of stepping up as the next sailor. What what is you stepping into here? They played well firm the the first night. He's been in that chair. Before you see the XS and Os guy whatever but he walks in and I think the question is does he get to keep the job for the rest of the year and that there's a really important question meaning because Steve Mills at Scott Perry are now on the clock. That was why they didn't WanNA fire physical. They were tried to give him every opportunity. Thirty to turn this around because the heat's coming might as well be on the coach. But once you've either coach the heat's coming on you like nobody's GonNa believe Mike Miller. He's it's just the guys walking in there and keeping the seat warm but now it's about. Is this the right for an office is this. The do they have the right combination of executives can these guys rebuilding L.. Did so does Jim Dolan let them hire a new coach. I mean there's there's plenty of people in New York who would love Mark Jackson and get the job right now and a lot of ways that would win the press conference Brinson. Maybe that would buy them another year or two to get the roster better but that's also a fundamental question. Did they just by themselves a year or is the clock Fox started on them. So ramone I if. It's unlikely Mike Miller is going to be the long term solution. Who is the next painting of the dog on the wall staring at hoping Israel a so I think I think really it's Messiah Jerry and it's probably always always been Messiah Jerry whenever there's a front office opening his name comes up and the reason being is the guy has charisma for days? He has a proven track record record of winning in a place that's really hard to win dramas great city. But it's hard to get free agents there. It's hard to build a winner there unless you have a great organization from top to bottom and and I think we saw the culmination of his executive talents last year when the raptors won the title the only question though is really well. There's two would Messiah Jerry really want that job. There's a sense that he would have an interest just because the the reason everybody has an interest in that it's the biggest challenge in all of sports. And if you know Messiah Jerry and his background I mean he's he's The guy who embraces challenges however he is a really good thing going in Toronto and he can keep doing that for the rest of his career though keep funding his charities and Africa he can he has a great global platform. Warm already. Why mess things up the second question which I think is probably the most important question overall? Is Jim Dolan. Finally ready to give the kind of autonomy me too an executive that it takes to truly turn things around the fundamental question. He's come so close he wants to. He sees you can see he wants to but he just can't help himself sometimes. Maybe they'll stick with the current front office. Maybe they'll go higher mark Jackson for the rest of the year with him in the off season. We'll see if that that's the guy who can save New York this year. A lot of people in New York who'd be happy about that but the holy the the the the next big name is Jerry. Thanks Ramana Coming up the Patriots are being accused of spying on the bengals.

It's not a real dog and like I kind of thing that's what it is like for the Knicks and legitimacy like there's all these people well you see it but it never comes to life it's just a mural on a wall it's not a real dog oh my God I Really a works Ramona. It's so the painting painting his legitimacy. The baby is the Knicks Yeah. I don't know who Jim Dolan is in this metaphor but but he does appear to be the common denominator in all of this misery right over two decades since he's been the owner. New York has the worst winning percentage of any team in the NBA. I mean it's just purely the through line in all of this coaching misery. Yeah that's a through line and like I think what's hard for Dolan to understand is that he is not he actually has stopped meddling as much he has stayed out of of it. He's he's off playing with his band. His focus is not entirely on the next right now. which if you're a knicks fan? That's good you know. Want Jim Dolan completely. Louis focused on the next. You wanted him to be focused elsewhere. But he can't quite step all the way away and in those moments where he does Rian Reinsert himself into the conversation into what the Knicks are doing. It has this effect of ruining everything right so the radio interview review where he goes and boasts about how we hear stuff we hear stuff around the league and we hear from people all the time right from players from you know. Representatives is about who wants to come the the the we can't respond because of an NBA rules etcetera. But that doesn't stop him from telling US right the end they do. The and I can tell you from what we've heard. I think we're GONNA have a very successful off-season when it comes to free agents will kill them. They're still recovering from this idea that they completely oversold their chances and free agency and totally under delivered like their expectations. Were so wild in free agency. They have a chance to go get Kevin Durant. He's injured and instead of just saying we love Kevin. No matter what you gotTa five-year Max Offer Offer Jim. Dolan says I've been burned before these injuries. I'm still paying without Amari style. Meyer thing and he doesn't allow Scott. Perry and Steve Mills offer him the five-year of your bags. Now you and I both know that he probably goes to Brooklyn Anyway. But you don't even get a meeting if you're willing to offer the Max contract then this year. Ten Games in his front office is like a ten games in go. Hold a press conference like this but Jim Dolan says get out their a sense of urgency and it just starts the clock on completely do stabilizes the franchise these are not big acts but they are important ones. And they're the they're they're the common through line denominator of why he even when he's trying to stay out of it he simply can't help himself and whatever he touches it whenever whenever he goes back in it all falls apart. Mike Miller gets the extreme privilege of stepping up as the next sailor. What what is he stepping into here? They played well from the first night. He's been in that chair before he's seen as I good XS and Os guy. I whatever but he walks in and I think the question is does he get to keep the job of the rest of the year and that that is a really important question. Meaning because Steve Mills Scott Perry are now on the clock that was why they didn't want to fire fizzed ill they were trying to give him every opportunity to turn this around because the heat's coming might as well it'd be a coach but once you've either coach he's coming on you like nobody's GonNa believe Mike Miller he's just the guy who's walking in there and keeping the seat warm but now it's about what is this the right for an office this do they have the right combination of executives. Can these guys rebuild it. So does Jim Dolan. Let them hire a new coach. I mean yeah. There's there's plenty of people in New York who would love Mark Jackson and get the job right now and a lot of ways that would win the press conference and maybe that would buy them another year or two to get the roster better better but that's also a fundamental question. Did they just by themselves a year or is the clock started on them. So Ramone I. If it's unlikely Lee Mike Miller is going to be the long term solution. Who is the next painting of the dog on the wall that are staring at and hoping Israel? Yeah so I think I think really. It's it's Messiah Jerry and it's probably always been Messiah Jerry. Whenever there's a front office opening his his name comes up and the reason being is the guy has charisma for days he has a proven track record of winning in a place? That's really hard to win. I mean dramas great city but it's hard to get free agency. It's hard to build a winner there unless you have a great organization from top to bottom and and and I think we saw the culmination of his executive talents last year when the Raptors won the title. The only question is really well. There's two would Messiah Jerry really want that job. There's a sense that he would have an interest just because the reason everybody has an interest in that it's the biggest challenge in all all of sports. And if you know Messiah Jerry and his background I mean he's he's a guy who embraces challenges however he has a really good thing going in Toronto and he can keep doing that for the restroom his career. They'll keep funding his his charities and Africa. He can he has a great global platform already. Why mess things up the second question which I think is probably the most important question overall? Is Jim Dolan. Finally ready to give the kind of autonomy to an executive that it takes to truly truly turn things around the fundamental question. He's come so close he wants to. He sees you can see he wants to but but he just can't help himself sometimes. Maybe they'll stick with the current front office. Maybe they'll go higher mark Jackson for the rest of the year when the higher the off season. We'll see if that that's the guy who can save New York New York who'd be happy about that but the holy the the the next big name.

"Point in ten games in and we just felt like we are now Gatien to do that. My understanding is David Vista. The coach didn't even know this press conference was happening like he went to hold media. I shouldn't have to the game like all coaches do. And they're down the hall. Having this press conference I don't think there was really a point other than to say we're not happy with where we're at a bunch of times. which really should have been obvious? Obviously Scott are not happy with where we are right now. We think two teams. He's not performing to the level that we anticipated. We expected to perform that. And it's something that we think we collectively have to do a better job hum of delivering once they had this press conference. It was like okay. This is on the hot seat like how long it's going to be because as soon as you do a press conference like like that you've marked him for destruction and the only guy in a question of when so at this point it sounds Fidel's a dead man walking pretty pretty black and I knew it. You worried this is GonNa fall on you ultimately. I don't care about all of that. Don't even think about that. Really I think about the next plan I think about the guys in the locker room ow can help at the end of the day. That's all I care about like as soon as you have that press conference and the the way okay it was done was done. Everybody in their mother knew was Jim. Dolan put him up to it Ryan and it's coming straight from ownership so you know at that point. The clock is ticking. And it's only a matter of when we were all on high alert looking at their schedule saying okay right. Before that Denver game there was a three day break and I remember talking with Agent Corral. Skiing at the time saying they're going to fire him. They would do it before that Denver game right but of course they don't and the team goes out and loses thirty seven and it's it's ugly and winning over the next tonight by a final score of one twenty nine ninety two phys has a meeting after the game. The way it's been described to me is very clear after that meeting that there was just no way forward and at one point he even says to them but I you know I understand Ed if you if you think that moving on is the best thing for the team the franchise. It's not like he was saying. I want you to fire me. But he was. He was like I. Ah I don't blame you I understand and I think at that moment that sort of seen of him with his head down talking like that being mm-hmm absolutely exasperated and broken by this whole experience. It became clear they just couldn't they couldn't continue but then the the next morning fiscal has the job. I don't know why they waited until after practice to do it. Maybe they were evaluating him to see if that was just a a bad night or bad moment and maybe they just needed some time to get their ducks in a row. I don't know but they. They waited practice the next day to officially fire him The Knicks have fired David physical as a coach after two of the worst performances. You'll ever see they became just the seventeen history. NBA lose back to back games. Things by thirty five points or more this L. was hired in May of twenty eighteen. which actually Ramona feels like? It's been less time that. He's been with the Knicks as I guess says longer than some but what was it like when he came in. What were the expectations for him in the team? Well I think it was sad when you look back on this. They they were so well positioned. He's got kristaps Porzingis who you know as dealing with injuries and stuff but he was you know business excited to coach poisoning as Mrs Unicor is a great young player. They were really well positioned for free agency was sort of an open secret in the league. That the next word favorites Everett's delay and Kevin Durant and the pairing. Those two together would have just been an absolute dream. This is the guy that was in demand everywhere. I mean every every team that had an opening opening whether it was Atlanta or Milwaukee Charlotte. They they'll wanted to talk to still he was. He probably could have any of those jobs he he actually just. I wanted the Knicks job so they bring in physical and there's this thinking that perhaps his connection to stars this might help them go after some of the big fish in free agency ultimately what happens this summer. So the Knicks and their fans. They they have this vision that they could end up Zion Williamson Kevin Durant Anthony Davis. It's like too good to be true. Of course right but there was there was a minute. They're going into the lottery. They have the best chance to get the number one overall pick. They think they've got Max cap space for Kevin Durant is they feel like they are so well positioned but they've got to win the lottery. Not only don't don't win the lottery. They don't even get the second pick in the lottery. which would have got a guy who I think is probably GONNA end up as the rookie of the year? Job Ran covering the lead. The last is ten years. I mean the one thing that I will say when you construct a super team and you could start. Net you think is going to have a chance to win a championship. You have to get one star. I and usually you get that star through the draft or trade but if you don't have one star to build around it's very hard to get it another star to come in free agency and I think that's where the next found themselves the summer coming up why despite years the facility. The Knicks are the one opportunity coaches and executives can't seem to pass.

"I'm sure in the way that the Knicks hoped but I think the the his thought process by and large has been sound as far as the things that he can control. Because you said we shouldn't you know throw parade because they didn't sign anybody to long term contracts but I think part of the reason that this job from an executive standpoint point is so attractive as because of the things that Scott Perry did. Since he's taken over you know the books are clean. Mostly and there's they have their first first round picks moving forward and they have contracts that like Marcus Morris you would think are tradeable To play off EH. Excuse me chicken tender. So there's no long-term salary here that's going to sit on the books and something that a an executive coming into this thing is gonNa have to worry about so. I think I say that to say that I think Scott Perry if we're looking at this thing has done a solid job here. They they missed on the free agents. That's on him and mills and everybody else but the things that he can control. I think he's done pretty well. The draft Knox. I still don't know Barrett seems like a good player. Mitchell Robinson things good player Alonzo tree or showed that he can certainly play at this level So I think they've done pretty well in the draft and Again no long-term deals that Knicks fans are just worried about like the joking no deal. Yeah no it's somewhere in the middle. There's there's there's catastrophic management where you bloat the salary cap giveaway draft picks all that stuff which the Knicks were guilty of for many many years. There's the the other end of the spectrum. Good where everything. Every move you've made for the most part goes right in there somewhere in the middle. It's not all good. It's not all bad. But we're it's I think most indictable is that they just haven't had a consistent plan. They haven't had the conviction whether it's in regard to the timeline for building out their roster whether it's over promising doing it wasn't just it wasn't just Jim Dolan going on radio saying I hear stars are coming this summer. You know. We're going to get all of these guys from what I hear. We have various and by the way he said that I I think based on what he was hearing from this of course. which is Steve Nelson Scott Perry and and they sent? Didn't they also send a the letter. The letter into season ticket holders Cohn frank that was also essentially promising like this blockbuster summer so they have over promised and under delivered also like I. I kind of drafted out real quick like their decisions. They've made and what's gone well. And what hasn't the jury's out on Kevin Knox but Shakeel just Alexander was on the board. They've really needed a point guard and they've really need like he. He was still on the board. I know it's always easy to play the the redraft game of who you could have gotten instead but you know what that's the job. That's that's their job Juries out of knocks you in Jerusalem. Bear it we. We don't really know again as I say about Michelle Robinson but I would say on on balance getting much Robinson with the thirty six pick was one of their absolute high points. That was one of their victories. Signing Damyean Dotson. Nice Nice. You know Phil Peripheral Dots and Phil. Sorry I can't even give them credit for that one but since since mills took over the Tim Hardaway. Junior contract was a disaster and they pay them way. More than anybody else in the League would have the people in Atlanta. Were laughing at it. The Ron Baker deal which was more minor but still was an overpay the Carmelo trade. The only thing left from the carello trade is Michelle Robinson. The that was a pick that they got from that deal Kanter McDermott where the other two guys they got. Obviously they let kanter walk. Never got anything for 'em McDermott. They traded a second round. Pick and McDermott to get Emmanuel Moody. Who of course is no longer traded? Really earned Gomez which was part of what illuminated porzingas one of many things. Obviously they stretched joke him Noah which they didn't have to do now he's still on the cap he could have been expiring contract right now. Oh I have criticized the porzingas deal and I will. I will continue to say that they did not use. If you had to trade him. It was the wrong way They got nothing for canter on the way out the door. That got nothing for Wes Matthews who they got in that deal the other Guy Andre Jordan who. They've gotten that deal right. Now they don't have much to show for the PORZINGIS trade. Aside from those two I may be mid to low. I think it's just if you look at all this and you evaluate have done a good job this front office last couple of years. I don't think you can quickly. You can say it's kind of neutral only you can say it's great. I don't know that they've really advanced the cause It's hard to make that claim especially after they just fired. The coach that they hand picked right. Before I let you out of here your best. Guess who's the next coach and win. and Are we going to see a new administration. I mean I hate speculation people's jobs for the most part when extreme cases like this. It's kind of hard to avoid agreed so I was told before. Phase got fired that there was some doubt about them hiring full-time coaching season. But this was weeks ago got so things might have changed. But I'm just based on that. I'm GONNA assume that. Especially because of the tenuous nature of their jobs right now. I don't think Steve Mills and Scott are going to hire a full time head coach in season. I have to assume that Mike Miller is going to be the guy for the rest of the year. And if that's the case this than we don't know right who's going to be. The next head. Coach could be period. Could be somebody else. If Jim Dolan decides the pull the plug at the end of the season if I was I was guessing my best. Guess is that the Knicks on the court. Don't show enough to justify bringing the front office back and I think that at the very least if mills goes and I think that's probably the most likely outcome. Then you know you go. After the stars you go after massage you you go after Sam Prestige make a call at RC. Buford I think go guy like Even Kiki Vandeweghe would be Somebody that they would you know have some interesting. So in the best case scenario for New York they write a blank. Check to Messiah Easier. And we've all talked about this. The most important thing with any of these guys Masai Archie. Sam Impress the whoever is you have to give them full autonomy to hire and fire whoever they want to hire and fire. You Know Jim Dolan has largely stayed out out of the day-to-day basketball operations. Nixon Springfield Jackson but no one has had full autonomy in the true sense of the term because fill in at least one instance wanted to bring in a medical training person From his past to the next and he was met with resistance there and then obviously to replace Phil everyone coming coming in was going to be working under Steve so nobody had full power to hire and fire as the wished that has to be part of the equation. Here no matter who you turn to if you turn to somebody this April and we've all you wrote a great piece on Masai and why it could be a possibility for him to come here. But I think nothing happens until I should say Those are guaranteed full-power. Yeah and this is something we have. Many of us have said many times over the years. The Knicks have this incredible brand is incredible market and all these resources and they've they squander it and what they should have been doing long ago and should do this time through if they finally do it right right. Exactly what you just said chase the best people you can get throw as much money as it takes to get somebody to just finally get this thing on the right course to reestablish everything everything that this organization's about reset the infrastructure the culture sports science analytics medical player development. All of it. And you need somebody who knows how to do it. And who's who's done it before Phil Jackson had never done it before. Steve Mills had never done it before. Find the right they. They're out there and if you can't get those guys ask those same people. We just has talked about Messiah. RC San Whoever. Who would you hire? You could hire. Who Do you like? WHO's the next guy who who's the next? You can find that guy but the Knicks never do that do that and you could get at this thing on a healthier course intended with that is exactly what you just said. And it's funny because some people tried to put us pit us against each other over the weekend on this because I I wrote that that Dolan one is is still a massive negative impact on this it may not be meddling like hijacking Carmelo trade or forcing the bar Johnny trade but it is certainly having an impact in the sense that that he's the one who's been hiring and firing these guys he's still creating instability. He's the one who's sending people out for press conferences On the fly. He's the one who did not grant Phil Jackson the autonomy that he he should have had to clean house and would not guarantee it to David Griffin when he had the chance to hire him and instead stuck with Steve Mills and gave him more and more power but giving somebody who has an established track record. Who knows how to do this? The ability to come in get rid of all the people who have been here through fifteen straight administrations and start over and until Dylan does that. I'm not sure that they get out of even if you get a big name. That person needs the autonomy to restructure from the ground up and I don't know if Dolan will ever actually be secure enough to do that so you and I don't disagree on this despite what people on twitter. We're trying to tell me over the weekend like you're saying he's staying on a basketball and he's not saying like sign this guy don't sign that guy. He hasn't hijacked a trade. My point is he has still had an overall negative impact in all of his actions and some of his inactions and things like ejecting fans for saying sell the team or rejection. Charles Oakley players notice these things it hurts. You're not using that as a selling point point in your free agent meeting. That's for sure not hardly okay We gotta get Outta here because Another podcast cruise stick to football guys need to get in here and You and I both have other things to do any parting. Wording thoughts on all that is the Knicks. The only thing that I disagree on and not to disagree with you the narrative that I disagree with when people I want to say like Oh you know James Dolan like he's everything that's wrong with the Knicks Games on the only reason that I don't agree with that because I think that it gives cover to to the decisions that his executives have made in the last you know five six years and I think that those those moves are on the executives. They're not on on him but everything that you said is fair. The stuff is fair hiring. Find Instabilities Fair. I just think when people throw a blanket over everything that's happened with the Knicks and say oh stolen you oh you you're covering for Stephen Scott pruitt. You're covering for Phil Jackson. It's actually a great point. It's actually the those guys are all responsible for their own mistakes and we should always emphasize that Dolan simply the one who empowered them hired them fired them pick the wrong people..

"Together on every episode. What if the players how what what's the Daytona amounts of amongst them during this period? Do you think that that you like. Somebody's just got got here. I wonder what the term for fires. Remorse is. If you're actually the one who signed the contract to get paid but Like how are these guys feeling about this. This this is a way station. None of these guys are sticking around very long. What's the tone so we spoke to the players? Obviously before and after that Indiana game and the interesting thing to me is so they had that a players only meeting before practice on Friday and sense that I got was that they felt really good coming. I'm going to that meeting like the Hash things out. They talked about ball movement. Playing on selfishly Marcus. Morris called the meeting I think let it are g Barrett in Julius randle. I think we're part of the conversation with regards to move the ball. In general they talked about. You know passing a double teams and so I think they. They felt good coming out of that meeting. I think coming out of that meeting there was a feeling that we WANNA play better. We're GONNA play better. We don't like Fidel taking the bullets for us for everything thing and then a couple of hours later. He's gone so I think players were surprised like they wouldn't say that publicly but Fidel you know he had pros and cons as head coach XS and os whatever. You want to quibble with but he was able to really connect with these guys off the court as human beings and so so there was an emotional response from players in terms of essentially losing a guy that they cared about and you know the idea that they were responsible in some ways for him. Losing his job I think that hurts them guys and they really felt like he cared about them as people and not just as basketball player so give his credit. Got It there and you know. He's had a long history of being able to connect with players. But I think also some players privately were kinda grumbling about the offense Lack of structure structure. Where shots were being taken from the quality of shots there so there was frustration privately with the coaching? So I think both of those things can be true. You guys were said to see him lose his job. 'cause they liked him a lot but there are also some guys who question things medically and question the coaching. Yeah and and I think you know if there's one thing that I think should be. There's probably fairly the most concerning part of of This early part of the schedule for the next the the results results to date the record aside it really is to me. I think about the fact that the young guys that they have placed a lot of faith in or hope in really aren't developing the way you would. You would hope right whether that's Knox was like a little glimmer there and it seems like he's just kind of recede into the background again and then you know he was. He was benched for an entire game. Dennis Smith Junior. You know seems to a have kind of plateaued and Really good for a couple of weeks and then he's kind of slid like that. I mean that should be the bigger concern for the Knicks. Really should be all about not the record at all. The record should be irrelevant. You said it's a rebuild. Let it be a rebuild but this is I've hit this theme at the I think every year at some point for last few years which is like stop chasing the A C. Stop chasing this this idea of of just like respectability in the win loss column. Even though that there's some importance to that just pick young guys that you truly believe in develop them give them the time to shine and instead you know when it was Neil Akina. They brought in Moody and they brought in Burry burn. Trey Burke they brought in Jack up they kept bringing other people like you draft half these guys and then you don't give them the full investment to develop them so that's that's partially on the Front Office for the guys. They've brought in on the coach for how they've played guys. Hornicek did the same thing bearing Neil Aquinas. So they just. This team has not shown a great knack for developing players commitment to a commitment. Yes and that's a better way of saying and they'll say like doc lesson guys can develop in practice. They can get better in many ways off the court but I think that there's no better way for a player to learn than learning through mistakes. The court how many true building blocks do they have right now. So it's so funny because you know you're talking about the young guys we were talking earlier about. How long long do you wait for a young player before you say? This is who he is or this is i. Don't I can't tell you like have Knox. I is nineteen or twenty years old so I know what I've seen so far. It's just so hard for me as a writer to predict like what he can and can't be I don't know his intermodal. Inner Drive Dr. I don't know like his. Does he approach things in the off season Roy I assume so. Could that lead to improving leaps and bounds at age. Twenty two I I like I can't rule it up based on what we've seen. I agree with you there there. You are right to question Knox Place in league. Obviously Nil Akina in his place in the league I rj Barrett has exceeded many people's expectations especially after his performance in summer league so I think he is certainly a plus and he looks like you know if all things go the knicks way in his way he could be A. You know a piece that you can build around and be a part of a strong core but you know it's just it's hard for me to to guess at what these guys are going to be. You know two three years from now I just because I think of it in terms of and surprised the wrong way to think of it I think in terms of what what I was doing it nineteen Lizard Usb to perform in front of Eighteen thousand people and go through ups and downs sounds of Rookie season the NBA have every dribble shot defensive. Slide picked apart and social media and the media. I don't think you've got to be able to handle that well mentally I was struggling to get to You know my classes in the morning so I just I just think of it in those terms just like how does a player mature And at what age has a player mature. Does that change how that player developed. Because if you go back to you know I don't know ten years ago. Fifteen years ago twenty years ago maybe players by and large for staying thing in school longer. So you're getting closer a more mature player coming into the League. Now it's different now. Teams have to do more development. Do more training off the cord Jordan on how to be a professional and that wasn't a part of the equation so much twenty years ago. Yes it it's definitely the challenge for modern NBA teams and the teams. Is that do that. Best that developed players are the are the ones that have the like when we start talking about culture and sustainable success. It's generally the teams that do a really a great job of developing players. We're seeing that right now with the Miami Heat. We've seen it with San Antonio we've seen it with Brooklyn we see certainly with Toronto. Not Just Siaka you know vanfleet. Norman Powell like certain teams are just really good at this Milwaukee The Bulls have been bad at it. The Knicks have been bad at Milwaukee's done a good job of it. It doesn't mean you hit on everybody and it doesn't even mean isn't even about hits soon as just about getting a guy who's got some basic like you know makeup that you can mold and then doing the right things to to advance their career and he becomes underneath guy station like you hit on those margins. That's the sign of a very good organization. which is the other puzzling thing about the Knicks off-season because Marcus Morris just as who he is is right now and Taj Gibson toward the end of his career? Like these are the guys who were trying to get to stabilize you. But they're not guys who are on like RJ Barrett's timeline. So it's all. It's all just very puzzling to answer my own question. I think the only two building blocks I C R J Barrett Mitchell Robinson and even with Mitchell Robinson like he still the player he was last year fouling a ton unblocking Utah taking a lot of of of swipes. They're going to put him in a disadvantaged position. He's still got to learn to play more kind of disciplined game. And and we still don't know if the Gaudy blocks and rebounds and everything are can contribute to a winning team because he's only been on the losing team that's not to disparage him at all. I think he's a really great potential prospect but we still don't really know what he'll be in terms of Contri- contributions on a good team and RJ Barrett. Is You know it's obviously very very early. But there's tools there but I think those are the only two guys is really and you've really been in a rebuild mode for multiple year. You can't start the clock at the porzingis trait know Porzingis was supposed to start. You know. I mean they've lost fifty plus games for five years. Yeah Yeah there was never a plan to do that like if you had planned five years ago lose fifty games be patient. You could be such a great great team right now this is. This is what I said during what people were really freaking out over the process and the tanking and Philly and everything and I said listen there are teams that were shitty on and like end. You're you're the clippers for decades the wizards slash bullets the all kinds of teams. That have been terrible year in year out not through planning but through absolute just incompetence so when people were flipping out about the process and takeout said. Listen like these their team already doing this. They're just they're just not doing it intentionally. So as you're saying is you re. It's okay from a legal standpoint and point to be incompetent year after year and being the lottery. You're after you're just because you don't know how to do your job right but if you plan it that way I would me. I would prefer it to be something that was thought out at part of a plan as opposed an escape as opposed to just sucking at your job and I I just want to say one thing because I think it's interesting about the roster constructions because I think that we we don't it's hard to separate Steve Mills and Scott Perry in my mind. Because I don't know like who signed off on Jewish Randall. Who targeted Julius randle? Who Targeted Dallas for the purporting straight? Who signed I don't know which way that goes? I assume that Perry does most of the work and Steve Signs off. But I don't know but I think that if you look at by and large before Scott came here. That's summer. Steve had signed Tim Harley Junior. who was eventually traded salary artery dump Ron Baker who wanna say it was waived to make room for Lonzo trip I think and then Perry comes in Baker the two year nine million whatever? It was run baker crazy. Backtrack I love Ron. I'm happy for him But so I say that to say since Perry came in you know we talked about the signings and the idea that these guys haven't developed..

Signed free agencies are teams that have the most money when you're starting to look at the salary cap I kind of just bring everyone up to speed. I gave I brought up the top six NBA franchises by available money. Now, the number one franchise with the absolute most money is franchise that have been everyone's been hearing about for the last couple of months. That is the New York Knicks the New York Knicks has seventy million dollars, which gives them plenty of room to sign too. Max players. Now there's been a lot of teams that has been kinda societas with the Knicks Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant. And but they do have the money lately. It sounds like New York is starting to get so up by another franchise in New York. The Brooklyn nets which will talk about on this list next. The brooklyn. Nets are two second franchise just a little bit behind the Knicks with sixty nine million dollars. And from everything that we are hearing carrier Ving is leaning heavily toward going to. The Brooklyn nets. Also, Kevin Durant has been linked to going to the Brooklyn nets. So they definitely have the money with sixty nine million and available cap space to sign both of those guys..

And then after that we played against each other two thousand twelve thirteen fourteen and then he retired when he retired. He went back to Turkey. And when you buy what went back that sort of key? He became the chief advisor of the president. And then now you works for the government. And I know he he's a very nice guy. Good player, but I have so much expect for him. But I know he did not one. Do that. I know the Turkish cargo made him do it because I so his tweets, and it was Turkish English and German, he doesn't know German. So I know they they made him do it. But but in that in that conversation that tweet he said, oh Ennis's China just trying to get at tension. He cannot go to London anyway because he's he has visa shoes. Well, I mean, I had to do it. But the next day, I put a tweet out there and showing that I have a travel document. So it is not every such. I yes, I can go to London. So he's not a visa shoot. Yeah. So and then I just it just made me very sad that he is such a thing like that. Yeah. That's tough. It's like I said that wouldn't kind of caught me off guard. And I wondered I I wasn't sure what to think of of chocolate with the basketball player when I start seeing Turkoglu the government spokesman for authoritarian regimes are hard to reconcile these things right now as I know it is for you. I'm not sure. How to ask us? Exactly. But you know, you've been very outspoken. I know you're going to continue to be outspoken to the point where sometimes like some folks have written about it this week where it seemed like you were almost exhausted by how much you've channeled into this. What do you hope is is the end results of all this not just your outspokenness, of course. But just the movement at large against Oregon is does this all end finally when he's just somehow out of office where however by whatever means that that that happens. It's obviously not gonna happen by election since those seemed to be rigged.

I remember my agency while talking tonight key issue deal and the Nike said, oh, yes, we walked we've been watching NS we love and as you want to give them contract..

"And I was I remember as I remember it was a Friday night. And I was with him. We're in the same room. Chatting, and Mr. assistant came with the news essay, there's a quits. I'm happening in Turkey. And we were all said because there were I think there was around two hundred and fifty people there was that that day and everybody was really sad and later on off the dacoits and the president had came out and said, the will the court them. I was like, okay. I was with Mr. then that night, and all I know all he did was sit on this chair and pray for his country that night, and then he was blaming Mr. Ulan, and he's movement Alicea. Okay. You know, what I have to take this then and I have to do something about this. Because if you look at it off, the dacoits the Riad there's an eighty thousand people under jail right now. Seventeenth out on seventeen thousand of them are women, and I think it was around over seven hundred of babies under jailed Suu mother. So I was like. This is not right because I was with a group that night. And then after that all the schools are shut down dormitories shut down all the news, author were she shot that, you know, people got a five my dad was genetic preface Ota, and he got fired and people were getting kidnapped ical getting torture tortures in Ajay older pros same day. I was like I played an MBA. And I have a strong was because I played an MBA. So that's why I was like I need to use this platform to talk about this issues and try to do so full of innocent people who don't have voice because there are so people know my story because I played an MBA. So there are thousands and thousands stories out there waiting to be hurt. Yeah. So that's why I was like I need to talk about these issues. But there have been consequences among which is that your your father's facing trial soon. And you haven't had been able to have any contact as I understand it with your parents for how long now loss I? Lost. So my senior was two thousand fifteen so low. So I can't remember the last time I talked to him, and they came out and denounced you I assume out of that was coerced be or or either coerced or because they needed to create some distance to protect themselves. Right. So so often it was off to quits. The put a statement out there and say, we are disowning Ennis, and it's very sad. Because off the quits mapping, the police came to my house in tertiary rated in my house and the two electron IX away the phones away let ups away computers away. They went to see if I am still in contact with my family or not. And if they would see any text message say, hi, mom. I hide that how you guys doing. Then we'll be all in jail. And then they came to my house. They took my dad away for seven days and then. Report so much pressure from America with with all the news all the news outlet all the channels. All the, you know, the interviews with it. We put so much pressure on Turkey. So they had to let him go. Yeah. So that's why it was very tough moment. Yeah. And there's really no telling where that goes next. Right. I mean, I assume this you're watching just you just have to wait and see how things play out with your father's trial minorities, a trial now and March and he's facing fifteen years in jail, and my brother is in America.

"Now happy to be joined in studio by I was gonna say nix center forward and his canter. But by the time this publishes, which will be on maybe Monday Tuesday. I don't know if Knicks centers, the proper tabby klu klu me, and his canter will you still be a member of the Knicks by the time this podcast publicist would. I have no idea no idea. But I mean, people know new people know that level of Neo guy have in it under status the business. So. This somewhere else? I mean, I was just going play. I mean, I got another chance to say, no, we were you surprised over the last couple of days to see those reports emerging sense that might become there's reports like that for me every year. So, you know, every there's always gonna get trade is that gonna get traded some really use those reports, but when people were talking, of course, very nervous buzzy because you have to pag you have to go their new CD new friends new teammates. But you know, what if it happens? It happens. You cannot control it. Yeah. Do you? I mean, if this were to happen, and we'll get to some of the your political realities personal realities for you when I can't help. But wonder you've been very outspoken, of course, politically you've been outspoken just period. You're not spoken by when it comes to basketball when it comes to trash talking. Lebron whatever it may be the Knicks of gonna fairly uptight organization in my experience. Having spent a lot of time around them. Do you think that if you are traded? It may be because they're uncomfortable with either the politics or you just your general outspokenness, or is it just about basketball. What do you what do you think might be driving? I don't think the amount bought spoke because I mean, it's very personal. And they respect it every time I talked to the GM or the front office or the coaches or the teammates they respect this so much because said, this is your personal things through what's best for you. So I think it'll be definitely basketball related. Yeah. All right. So if it's not about quote, unquote, distractions which teams like trotting out, it's not about you being outspoken if it is just about basketball. What do you think that's about is it because of the youth movement, and obviously our free agent in the summer. Anyway, do you think this is just them kind of clearing the decks for the kids? Or is there something else I will say salary dome, of course, and youth movement. Because I mean, of course, they going so obvious. I'm twenty six I'm not old. But. Visit if they have a lot of young guys now with the new draft picks, and I think they are really trying to get superstar for next year. So I think that really trying to clear some kept space for the superstar. I don't know who whoever it is. But. At the second. Of course like you say youth movement. Yeah. Well, that's the Catherine part of it's the weird part of it. Right. Like, you are the cap room if they just keep you and let your contract expire, right? You're the capital, but I want to get some draft picks. They just maybe that when we do walk away. I wouldn't walk away. I love New York. But. Like, I said, it's business. It's tough business. It is a tough business, and it's interesting because in so many ways when they made the deal when the trade Carmelo and brought you here I thought this is the perfect place for Inish Kanter because it's an international city. You're an international guy cosmopolitan city, and for somebody who is politically conscious and active and that the to me there's no better place in this country, the New York, no the few of places in in the US that also I think fit somebody of your personality worldliness, but let's face it. This is New York. Like, this cannot be definitely. But it is there in a strange situation, basketball wise right there in transition. They're often in transition that. And you're trying to get there. And you're in an interesting position because you have kind of pseudo lobbied out there for your old teammate Katie to come here. And it doesn't matter because players can't tamper David Stern told us this years ago. You can't tamper. So it's okay for you to do it. But if for him to come here from means that your expense, right, right? Unless you're gonna take a massive pickup pay. Well, I mean, Of of course, course..

"Eight. I'm Howard Beck. Senior NBA writer for Bleacher report my guest today. NS canter inas Kanter comma of the New York Knicks as I record this and his canter of the I don't know Sacramento Kings, possibly or destinations unknown by the time. You listen I sat down within his cancer curently report on Thursday January tenth so it's a few days before the Knicks were due to head out to London and day or so after reports surfaced that an S Kanter was the subject of trade discussions active trade discussions with Sacramento. And I would assume other potentially potentially other teams out there. So been a very interesting week for NS, so far, and and I'm sure more to come in the days between when I record this. And when you the listener are listening, we spoke mostly about the situation in his home country of Turkey. Of course in his canter has been an outspoken critic of the current president's Erta on and his authoritarian tactics. It's a it's a fascinating story. I will let NS cantor who is much more an expert on this than I am tell you about most of that, you know, as again, the Knicks will be in London NS Kanter will not end is because and his canter feared for his life. And at a minimum his safety if he had gone to London. I get the sense that that the Nixon the NBA might have had their own concerns. They have been fairly tight lipped about all of that. Understandably. They don't want to discuss security concerns. But none of this has dissuaded and his canter from speaking out. He's very passionate in his beliefs. You will hear all that? And we talked a little basketball, of course, as well. He's a free agent this summer he loves living in New York. And I get the sense would love to stay here. But of course, the Knicks have bigger plans with all the cap room that they can clear including. His salary. So a fascinating discussion within his canter on many many fronts.

"To go to Dolan and say what the fuck if you've done you've taken a New York Knicks and turned it into a fucking joke since you've got this building and team handed you by your father and a ruined it. And then you call them some names do yourself a favor and shape at funky speared. Look, here's the thing. So first of all, I'm not banned from the guard. All right, so yeah, that's clear. I'm not a specially banned from the garden, and that's never happened that that that I don't know how that started that it was bad. I said, I I was banning myself after the Oakley thing I said, I will not go into the garden until Charles Oakley is allowed in the. Garden at that point. I had never even met Charles Oakley. I wound up meeting soon after the big three. But because of all the things that he represented to the fans and this being Coleman Asian of just one frustrating incident after another I was like, I'm done. And then I was like it's not like, you know, for some people were like, oh, yeah. We we report saying it was it's not like, I'm missing out. Now this before physio got there. It's like sound like I was missing out on going to the Nick games because it's like, what am I going to see I'd rather go see the third stringers in fucking off off Broadway play than watch this shit. That being said what has been taken away from me is the celebrity tickets now celebrity row, I have been a part of that. And I am humbled and completely grateful about getting those those courtside tickets that the garden and the Knicks giveaway. They will not give me those tickets until I don't know when I did actually go to Madison Square Garden to watch to thirty. So I have been back in the garden, and there is no official ban. And if I want to go to a Knicks game if I get tickets I'll go to a Knicks game. Now, I fucking shell doubt. Close to sixteen hundred bucks. The other day to send my brother and his niece. Well, my my niece. Very good seats to see the Knicks lose to the Aaron Gordon lists my Orlando Magic. And I'm saying to myself now, I sell I wanted my brother to have that experience of sitting very close at my niece. And I was like who a fuck would spend this kind of money to watch this shit. Who would watch this shit? So that's where we are with the Knicks again I fuck with physio. I believe in fizzle. I love these young kids. I love tria. Well, what we've seen of Knox? I believe him the second pick that we picked this year Mitchell Robbins game. I think is good. And I believe the sun is on its way the sunlight because of these elements that being said, I begged I pleaded, and you know, the thing about Dolan when the Knicks win a championship. And we will win a championship. I believe David physio will bring us a championship in the next five years when that statue is handed to James Dolan in my imaginary world, it's handed James Dolan, a Madison Square Garden, James Dolan will still be booed the New York knick fans after after we win that championship. He'll be fucking booed. We don't relate to him. And we don't have to have every owner's not going to be like Mark Cuban or some of these other colorful owners that could just be owners. But we. We don't relate to him and we don't like him. So again, you could just be the owner the rich guy runs a team. But he he's he's immersed himself as part of this thing, and you ain't us you ate the fans you a New York knick fan, and there's been so much shit that we dealt with. So when we do raise that fucking Larry O'Brien trophy Dolan, be prepared to be fucking booed in the building that your father gave you now, I probably I might get banned after saying that. But that's the reality. That would be a fast did stare on the fuck and end of the court, you know, like he has to go take shit..
