That was a ninety five percent. Chances man him and curry will go into the New York. Knicks because he was gonna go wherever Kevin. Durant went because they're boys, and they wanted to play together like Kevin Durant had his eyes on MSG. But then, after that you're hearing that car Ian Brooklyn have fallen in love with one another, that curry was going out of his way to convince Katie to come to Brooklyn with them kyri at flown out to the west coast before Katie got injured says K D got injured, and he was in New York. Kyrie Irving has come to New York to see him their careers from New Jersey from New Jersey case, y'all for God. And a presumption is at least one of them are going to be in Brooklyn possibly both. And if that happens the New York Knicks end up getting screwed now. Here's what makes it worse because my producer Jonathan with rope. I'm not sure he saw this problems at home. They were taking his wife to death. I won't tell his personal business. But, you know, he's ever taking his wife and getting on her bad side. And so he's not entirely focused on the job at hand because he's crazy. Steady just nudges away. It is beautiful wonderful wife, who deserves so much better than what he does.

James Dolan, wants is dotted and T's crossed as it pertains. To the medical situation involving K D.

"Fifteen minutes, though, because I want you to hear this interview joining us right now on the show salmon, Meco Emeco, hoops dot net Fontham on Twitter at Meco hoops, he joins us right now to talk about NBA free agency. Talk about the NBA world's championship, and the Toronto. Raptors one at sand. Thanks for joining us today friend, Ken. Thanks for having me. Good to hear your voice. It's good to hear your voice. I've missed you greatly. And I do sincerely mean that brother can I ask you something is should I made the argument now for an hour and forty minutes that there should be no asterisk next to the Toronto Raptors championship. Am I right? Or am I wrong? Absolutely right there. There really is. No asterisk next many chicken. That's all you care about. And, and, you know, you you talk about injuries, which we, we, we've heard about with the Cavaliers before in two thousand fifteen and the warriors this year. This goes on throughout history in nineteen eighty eight or nine when the Detroit Pistons be Magic Johnson's Lakers and magic didn't play in that series. I don't think seeing for the played in that because of injury they truly are part of the game. And it really does show you why, and how it's so hard for team like the warriors to win three straight championships. That's why teams typically don't do it to your body. From October until the end of jewelry or the middle of June every every season. So it's just it's just tough win three titles. When and holed up in this league because there's so many games, and they've got to do so long you need some look. Do you want to stay in Golden State, or are you of the believe is essentially being you make his own decisions, and we'll have fun regardless? I think he's gonna make his own decision, but I think he is staying with Toronto. I think that, you know, I've heard from around the league and, and it's been reported a couple of times. He's probably gonna sign or two room deal to remain with the rappers. Maybe a two year deal with a third year ability to opt out, but, you know, I'm always for and this is just personal preference. I'm always four guys stay where they are. I think it's better for the fan base. I think it's better for the league in general pretty competitive balance. And yeah. And I think hey, you win. What more do you want? They can pay you more than anybody else that you just wanna title, would make the most sense if he were to remain there, but free agency free agency, and we've seen in the NBA there's, there's never any telling what might happen. Well, that's you know, that's a great thing in I've never seen a player pull the rug out from under himself. Well, what are the chances that they could? Repeat in twenty twenty the Toronto Raptors because I think I got a sneaking suspicion here. But go right ahead. You know what's going to happen summer one way or the other. If nobody leaves, nobody goes anywhere, which is a possibility. Toronto. Raptors the favorite going into the season. Pat experienced the now that they've got the the championship win. They've, you know that which is invaluable experience. How elite surgery Baca all of these guys now have won a championship. What would it be more going into next season? And he put call me Leonard around that team that team around corner, Leonard and, and yeah, if you doubt an excellent shot, but everybody who said before this season, Ken will the NBA he'll fun when you know who's point win at all. And I understood people thinking that we all care, the warriors. So we're not at all. No question. This is this is should be a life lesson. Is that you never guarantee anything, and anybody who thinks that way is really enjoy next season because there's going to be five sixteen without Kevin Durant Klay Thompson for the majority of the season. There's going to be five sixty than ever real shot at the it's your next year. Oh, there's actual parody there. You're right. Sam amigo. Joining us on the show. Miko hoops dot net. Follow me on Twitter at Emeco, hoops will say if coli left after this year. So it's one championship. I, I don't think I'd put Toronto back in that mix again, could I make the argument then and I would it justify should, I say would it justify the Kevin Durant argument where Kevin Durant won there. You want to win the champion. You would've won the championship. Inqui- was already gone anyway. So he knew you didn't really have much upside of him. You can make the argument. Yeah. That look. If you take the best player off any team, and you could say they, they wouldn't be winning the title, but as far as Golden State goes, that's going to be a very interesting situation to ten because Durant's out for the year, probably I mean, if he comes back, it's going to be next to, you know. An and who knows if he'll be say player and who knows if he'll even resign there, you know, he's gonna get offered the max from everybody. So what's happening with Golden State is if she repaying their Thompson is going through sign there from by all accounts, including his own dad. They're gonna have their to, you know two of their three best players on the sidelines for the entire year and not be able to have any room to wiggle room under the salary cap to sign anybody else. So, you know, you may be seeing Golden State next year at the end of the scientists the so called dynasty you may see them next year. Celebrating like Jackie moon in semi pro and saying, you know, hey, we won fourth place. You know, I mean that they're going to have a really tough season next year because they're going to be handcuffed salary cap wise and not have to three best guys. I don't know if that answered your question, kind of went on into their no, that's one don't do it leads me into the next one because the Kevin Durant. Do you think that does he feel the love now Bob Myers, openly weeps in the press conference about Kevin Durant, where there was almost where it seemed that they, they made them escape goat up until then does he feel? All the love and reconsider staying in the bay area or is it just a programmatic non fit now. That's a great question. That really is a great question. You know you would them right? Thank god. I'm pretty sure that Kevin Durant. Decided on his own. I'm gonna play. But, you know, I think that there was some maybe some pressure from the organization that said, look, we feel that you're okay to be out there and he wanted to play. So they gave him the head and said, yeah, let's do this and. He feels like he's got no support. But I you know, from the organization, I think that, that he would be willing to return, it's gonna be it's gonna be very interesting to see who you know, the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn, their own state, who's going to offer him the max steel, and he you know, you're paying him next year, three eight million for orig- shirt, and who knows what it'll be awake when he from stack at thirty two years old coming off achilles surgery. I mean we saw DeMarcus cousins was not the same. Kobe Bryant was not the same. It's, it's going to be very interesting. I think Kevin Durant will be very good. I think most people probably think Kevin Durant will be very good. Can I mean you're talking thirty three years old achilles surgery, be twenty may not me? Me anymore. He may be top twenty. There's there's, there's a lot to think about if you're the Golden State Warriors, or, or New York Knicks, or whoever offer city a MAC. I think he got to be careful because we saw the Lakers, did that with Toby Bryant, and they have not recovered six. So did Thursday mean that, that it's quite Leonard's league? No. I think so. I think so you you're the best player on the best team. You know, and it book. I don't know that anybody else could have won a championship in with, with that, raptor swat, I think you had to have the perfect all star, you know, and he really was he released sits there, and he really knows how to win big games come through in big moments. And he just amazing. I mean, if you remember watching the game in the first half, I was, like, where's polite Leonard? He's not here. He didn't show up and then the second half the guy just does everything. Right. And I just think yeah, you know, people don't want to put him in the same class with LeBron James and Durant, those guys, but. And I think that's because he's very stoic. As we as we know his personality is not. He's not flashy. But I think he's, he's right there with those guys that I really did sim amigo with us on the show. Check out his website and Mako hoops dot net worth KAI. Regan end up. You know, I would've said Boston before, but I think it's going to be Brooklyn. Now, I think that he stayed. You know, signing with Roc nation which as e which has ties to the nets. I, I just think the mortgage should no Kyrie in see what he's doing. I just think he lives in a land of discontent. He he always wants to be somewhere else. But yeah he had a really good situation. Missile. I think he will. I think he'll go to the nets. What about Anthony Davis? Where's he end up? I almost think New York I really do. I think that I think that David Griffin is, is the pelicans GM is using some of these other offers from the Lakers in Boston to kind of drive up the price. I think the Knicks could offer him the number three. They don't have the young players that that some of the other people do, but I think they rip, you know, might end up liking that deal passed because the next to get a third team involved and then GRIs would get some more picks and young players that they mixed don't have. But this just a wild guess, and book he's, he's really negotiating having a lot of conversations with the Lakers and the Celtics. And I think the clippers could possibly sneak in there too. But I think the Knicks are going to be a dark horse that was a three team trade, Chicago's getting involved atmosphere team in that and they had a lot of stuff offer. So I think that that's it's a long shot for him to go to any team at this point, because they're still talking. But if I had to take a while. Is trading. How much of a nuclear option is trading. Lebron is that even possible? Yeah. I, I mean, if I'm the Lakers concert and consider it, I think that they did. Audubon it..

"And he was eleven points soon. And it was just like feel that way, too. I don't think the media had much to do with it. I just wanted to play because he's such a, a high-calibre athlete. So, so we have enough information. But imagine the worst case scenario year out at the, at the best case scenario and coming back to play. Is he still same player? Is that even possible it's possible, hopefully? I'm you know, I'm no doctor on, you're not you're not a doctor. Okay. I I was was. you. Everybody's a professional athlete. I know. So I would hope that he's the same when he comes back, but, you know injuries players react differently to different injuries all the time they could be the same. If he wasn't as great, it would be awful. He's one of the best of all time in my opinion, speaking, best of all time guy, so my guy Tony's from Chicago. You're huge, huge. Chicago sports fans, I always have to get into the debate with you him. Jay LeBron Kobe. Who's Who's the? the who's the greatest of all? I'm not being biased, but I can look that way. But as the best of all time, how do you say that the different period, see people always throw in different era excuse, and I feel I feel like the air his air was Telfer why house real in the finals? Did he really mean how they play play the heart of Baghdad? The New York Knicks, the pissing pistons Houston give in j the work they used to sling him all up and down that court he was still just turning it up nowadays, flop city of barely. Every day. It's all over it's over. I understand that. Okay. We ballistic. So this is the anniversary this week is aniversary of flu game. There are all these rumors about how he really wasn't. And so, in this legend of j I think he's the greatest, but I have to give it to Kobe because I feel. We're both picking us. What do you mean by that? Do you not diehard, but do you not think Kobe is like the if not the best closest thing to j yes, he's close. Nothing came across. But Kobe correct you. He, he is the closest thing into The one one who who gets gets. tempers not in they prime just in fine in their prime. Let's have that conversation one. Oh, one we're going to ten. Did you see Kobe? It was good. Where has he ever wanted player of the year? You know what I was asking? Has he ever won this Jordan? Okay. So does that mean he's better? Okay. So no. But Kobe plays game everyone. That's the only reason I during be people will be mentally never, ever flinched this. He could take J easy. I'll feel like they're the same almost the same prototype. Jordan his. I disagree. I disagree. I absolutely disagree. Who's the closest thing to MJ now playing them, you gotta give it to LeBron LeBron? He's just doing everything right in terms of I feel like there's never really been a player like him in terms of size speed his versatility people people like the hate on the Brown, but they don't have the numbers to really back it up. Yes, he's been to the finals, a lot and loss. And why that's why give Jordan the title because we will we when he's in the final he's undefeated. Okay. So at thirty plus years of age and you look at the NBA current span not, including the recent injury to Kevin Durant. But you think that LeBron is the best player currently into world? I would have to say yes, better than Katie slightly. Slightly katie's amazing. He's. Katie, in what way I just feel like he doesn't have the power that LeBron has the Branca's shoot. He can use fast. He's big in power coming in TD has the power feel egg LeBron is strong staff. Like his he's not as fast as he used to be. Before katie. Giving it to LeBron your homework.

I'll know anything about the guy other than he's the owner of the New York Knicks and on one hand, the New York Knicks are the most valuable NBA franchise. But on the other hand, the New York Knicks have suck fees. So I don't know how much credit JJ Dolan should get for keeping the value of this trash asked product so high. Okay, I think all the credit for the Knicks being worth four billion dollars should go to the most delusional fan base in all of sports, the New York Knicks fans drop bombs for the New York. Knicks fans out there. Listen delusional fan. I am a Dallas cowboy fan. Okay. We used to be the most losing fan base. And all the sports we have been kind of winning recent years, and we have a great call young player continue to get better our future's bright. So it's okay. For us to have hope wouldn't experience.

You have to know your robbing the fan base would no mask when you have a wack ass product on the floor. In fact, I think James Dolan should actually be the nicest owner in the league, he should be doing things like, you know, busing kids in from the hood and giving them free seats. He should be donating money to various charities all throughout New York City. He should be shaking hands kissing babies and telling people thank you for still coming to see this garbage asked team, but James Dolan, like most entitled privileged pricks doesn't think this way now video surfaced on TMZ sports James Dolan, getting pissed it a fan because the fan urged him to sell the team.

"Time NBA champion seventeen years in the association will discuss them NBA would be coming up in a few moments. And what we're going to be discussing is what I get into right now. NBA TV ratings are plummeting. Have you noticed? The plummeting. And in an era where the NBA has been booming as a business model. It's surprising to see television ratings plummeting. And when ratings go down like ten percent. Some of TNT's numbers sixteen to eighteen percent. That's shocking. Really? That's a that's a shocking development, especially in a sport that is thriving. And I know that Shep is one of the big fans of the NBA that works here at the But what they've done. Is they've created a situation where going into a season. Ninety percent of the league's knows they have no shot to win a championship. Ninety percent of baseball teams aren't of it on opening day. Ninety percent of hockey teams aren't out of it to win the Stanley Cup on opening day. Ninety percent of baseball teams aren't out of it. Ninety percent of NBA teams are out of it on opening day. And that is unacceptable. Now, you are a you're a big fan of the association. Do you? Do you believe that premise that? I put to you there. Oh without question. Jake as one hundred percent, and I I want to put something back on you. Okay. They do this and international soccer. And Adam silver is a big fan of international soccer. He's adopted a lot of policies that they have done what he wants to do in. My understanding what I believe they should do is they should do relegation where instead of teams say, you know, what we're going to go into taking mode, which is doing exactly what you were saying, by the way, it's diluting the product. And it's hurting the overall NBA if you can't performance step up as a professional organization, guess what you go to the G league. So j k I don't know what you think of that. But I guarantee you teams are going to take winning a heck of a lot more. Seriously. Here's problem, though, is is that the New York Knicks would be a G league d league. Whatever you call a team. Good for what thirteen of the last fifteen years. Probably good good. Maybe that'll stop getting twelve head coaches. And you're saying twenty years. Do you think that the the garden is filled up? Corporate dollars are there for that. So that's what I'm trying to say is do you think there's the corporate dollars are gone. With JK. But the the arena is always going to be there. Just like Sacramento, always sells out the United Center will used to be United centers, Chicago. We sells out, but where it's going to where it's going to really really boom the revenue the gross revenue is from the rating standpoint, the arena gate prices always going to be there. I don't know if you agree with that. Or not why won't no not if it's not if you're having the New York look Philly tanks for three years almost four New York's is tanking. You're not gonna have look the Sixers attendance dropped off drastically. And the thing is you can't charge the same ticket price. If they're not playing in the same thing. I love the concept. But if they're not playing in the big boy league, even if they're not trying to you know, the way that they're doing it. I don't think the fans will be there to pay for it. JK warriors fatigue is one reason and having LeBron James play out west coast is definitely another issue or the TV. Absolutely. Because you don't see them. You don't see LeBron during prime time, you're seeing LeBron AL West. And honestly, I never thought there would be anything that was going to turn me off of LeBron James. And his his sort of. Routine with the Los Angeles Lakers to me has really sort of turned me off. And if you listen to the big podcast shack, which you should he has a great co host guiding jonky Kate. We got into this debate yesterday last week. Show and you'll hear more of it this week. I think it's a clown show. I think it's a clown show when LeBron chooses to go to the Lakers, and then proceeds to just sort of harpoon the hallway innovation. Isn't a leader to young players get these get these Gibran he's out of town. He's trying to get teammates traded. He's trying to get his coach fired. And shack defense LeBron. And we get into a very heated exchange over he defends it saying critique them because I did it too. And he says every superstar does it too. So he doesn't think I understand that former teammates from Cleveland, but he still defensive and says this is what I I did this too. I tried to have guys moved off the roster. I tried to force coaching changes as if it's acceptable. And I just don't I just don't buy that. That's acceptable. And shacks point is when you have the power. Do you not wield the power, but he went to an organization the Laker brand doesn't need. Lebron? James it never. Did. It never did. And instead of going and adding to the legacy and realizing okay, I can't get star players in with me right now. So what I'm going to do is be a good teammate and build up the guys that I'm with right now, which in turn by the way, if you do that you make their value higher which allows them to have better value in a trade package. So when you're trying to to rape, the New Orleans pelicans of their best player, and I love so much that they gave him the big middle finger salute. You're not tossing off the trash you mean, the trash that you're whispering down the lane. All these spare parts they you say aren't good enough. You're trashing your own roster. You're trashing your own coach. And then some other organization doesn't want to take your garbage your leftovers. Lebron James hurt his own own brand. And hurt the Laker brand and hurt. The Laker roster. He heard it. By the way, that hurts their trade value, which doesn't let him get his eternal goal to try to be surrounded by other players because that's how LeBron gets his glory and many other players have done that too. That's what he wants. That's how he wants to go. I'm telling you this New Orleans. I would let I would let Anthony Davis it. I swear to you, very there's I I'm a billionaire. I'm a billionaire owner. I would let his backside play twenty minutes a night and lose and stay in New Orleans. If I can't find a suitable deal that works for me where I can trade him somewhere else. I would never give him what he wanted. Anthony. Davis is exactly what's wrong with today's NBA. Excellent. Not understanding the business model trashing his own organization, which then hurts them and being able to make some sort of a deal putting them at a disadvantage. Not understanding how the business works. I hope he gets nothing of what he wants. And I hope LeBron and that entire situation crashes and burns, that's my thoughts. We're going to get Lindsey hunters coming up, and I think Lindsay may have a different opinion. And I hope he does. Plus what plenty of time for your calls later on in the show. We haven't got to take a lot of calls. They had some difficulties that will change and we'll get your phone calls in after the bottom of the hour. Thanks for sticking around. It's the fourth quarter of the jonky Kate show. This is CBS sports radio. Balder ruffled some feathers.

"Rise as a rookie to NBA prominence in what this means for, you know, his time line there's a lot of. And of course, there's Mark Cuban and much more significantly James Dolan, and the just his just hapless helming of the of the New York Knicks. There's just a lot of little lot of major players in the NBA soap opera here more than just Kristaps Porzingis who is in amazing, and who will be very healthy, very soon and leading the Mavericks to a championship. So I got like four reasons they're the suddenness of the trade, which is the sense of any new story right to it. Whether the next got robbed, which is standards or story free agency hypotheticals that this unlocks for next summer and beyond. And then this sort of thing that Bill talks about a lot, which is this sense that people are conspiring in the NBA behind the scenes, you know, with tampering and free agency and all that stuff. F-? I don't I I hesitate to use the words NBA dark web that URL pal. Jake, hang us. But, you know, this is a sense that sense that they're these unseen forces working in the NBA that everybody is dying. No about at that are controlling everything. And that sort never gets public. I guess I guess what's partly amaze me as just like the way in BA news goes from hypothetical hypothetical hypothetical rate. The Knicks have been a hypothetical for. Nine years longer than that. When did they start dumping salaries to get LeBron? You know, the first time those two dozen yet. Right. They've been on and off this for a while. Yeah. So it's just like, it's I guess what's amazing about the NBA. If if there were an NFL team or any other team that had just done this year after year after year and had never actually been a coherent basketball team. We would have just given up, but may whether it's the sort of weirdo glamour of the Knicks team. That's never won anything considering how long they've been famous or just the way that the thing, you know, the NBA works now, I guess is interesting..

"Gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Let's focus on the New York Knicks because here we are in New York City, and you know, I love the New York Post and the post is just built for this kind of news. Let's look at the back page of the post this morning living on a braille. Oh, wow. Look at that that photo show being Durant and Siahaan all in the orange and blue. So let's just let's just game this out. This is this is actually a real potential. Let's look at the best case scenario or the Knicks this summer, they have about over seventy million. They can have Durant Irving. Williamson Knox and Mitchell Robinson is starting five. Robinson in there. But that's a real thing that could happen. That's that's a that's not just a playoff team. That's they're hosting a playoff series. That's hosting a playoffs. I think you know. I don't think you're giving him enough credit. Kevin Durant makes them he'd be instantly the conference instantly. This is the co I notice the camera as the second best player in the league after LeBron so instantly. He he lifts them up several levels of and then you add kyri in their man. This is a team that can contend four conference championship. And there is an MBA because the rent level of the warriors look at that. I mean that is the best case scenario. But as I mentioned this can swing wildly both direction. Let's take a look at the worst case scenario or for the New York Knicks. This is why Knicks fans are a little concerned this morning, you take a look at the worst case scenario, and it doesn't just look like not a playoff team looks like one of the worst. Hold on. Wait a sec Lonzo Kevin Knox zone. Yeah. At cornet. Timeout flag on where to Dennis Smith junior ago. On hurt hurt hurt. This backing up really had great off season. And he was desma juniors. Coming up the bench. You guys swinging for the vents is there like let's make. Is the worst case scenario? They're not gonna end up with that line. The worst case scenario, actually, I'll give you scenarios worse than that as overpaying guy. Who's not worth it? Right. You're doing the Tim Hardaway thing. Again, cleared out to match slots to do what to get someone who max players. Yeah. But real max players not guys that you paid max right there max players. And then there guys that you paid max, right? He this Kanter made max believe once upon a time guy that you pay max, he's not a max player. And so that's the issue there. And that's the worry. It's not that they swing a missile sign anybody. It's they'll sign the wrong because I'd rather they not sign anybody then signed the wrong guy. I mean, this is the wrinkle that I absolutely love about this trade somehow, someway, it has nothing to do with Anthony Davis and everything to do with Kyrie Irving, and the Celtics explain how this this tangled web is woven between Davis kyri and the Knicks. Mean first of all so the kyri an anti Davis a pretty close from their days playing team USA, very close. That's one of the main reasons Celtics are so confident that they can Anthony Davis here because they feel like, hey, you're your best buds when if he has Laker intention shoring men in have him in Kyrenia, do oh they they win a channel on how do you say? No to that. Right. Here's the flip side, though, if you can't land in Davis either because he already gets traded to Lakers or then incisively to cute negotiation. Adele them says, no, I'm not gonna do that. Then you got a situation kyri is a free agent. And I know he said I'm going to stay over the course of this number in the TD garden, you know, you know, more special place have your jersey retired Madison Madison Square Garden, the world's most famous arena. Which by the way is home come home, all and come home.

Nets got enough cap space going to play the Lakers. Obviously what they've join the clippers off potentially going after two max players. What are you gonna do? Knicks.

What thinking that's why the New York Knicks needed to make the thereby making this move. I spoke to them. I was told they've got about sixty eight million a cap space. Go is highest seventy five maybe a little bit higher. But no matter what were you slice it. They got the opportunity to go after max play it last time, I checked Kevin Durant.

My Irish it wasn't all that close in that one. But you were still going to watch for that guy to do something. And if you're the Knicks was and there's always going to be a draw there and quite frankly for the Knicks you're trying to build and strike. In this next summer. You got your eyes on Kyrie Irving. Kevin Durant some of these free agents, and if you wanna make those jersey even somewhat of a reality you bring a player that's going to win. Now, not a guy that's gonna win tomorrow. And if you're the pelicans, you got to secure the future this Knicks. Pelicans marriage makes a lot more sense than I think we're giving it credit for. Last podcast about ten minutes. We're gonna head out to New York talk to our friend, Gordon Damer from ESPN ninety eight point seven, there's only one place. I want to go with this today because I think Anthony Davis in the New York Knicks is a match made to have it. We're going to talk almost exclusively about the Celtics and the Lakers when it comes to this the Celtics on the back end of this July first date where they would be able to offer and pursue Anthony Davis and the Lakers in the here. Now trying to make a push for a trade within this NBA season. But then you've got the New York Knicks who again, I think the stupa one I think the pelicans looking to get the most return for Anthony Davis who said he won't sign a long term extension agent. Rich Paul said, he won't sign that max extension there. He wants to trade. The pelicans that ship has sailed you need new, and you need something that's going to invigorate. The franchise you need that unprotected. The number one pick that the Knicks have and need to turn it into Williamson. And if the Knicks on the other side Zion on would be great in New York to be a phenomenon we've all talked about. But Anthony Davis is the proven commodity. He's everything that you hope we say this all the time with the NFL. It's a lot less certain top picks in the NFL that is in basketball with these guys would come from high school right away. But for Anthony Davis. He's exactly what you hope. Zion could be. And he is that in the here. And now Anthony Davis the Knicks jersey at that could come to life, and I think should if they play their cards. See Gordon things they should offer along with that topic or who they would in order to get Anthony Davis into a Knicks uniform..

But there's no guarantee that you'll get him. Because those pingpong balls for the draft lottery having said all of that. I don't know what to make these things. I'm very worry. I'm worried about the Knicks ability to get a marquee to join Kristaps Porzingis who we haven't seen much of. I'm skeptical. About whether or not the New York Knicks are going to land someone of substance to join their franchise. Because the truth of the matter is there's nothing that attractive about the right now. If would be an honest. Is nothing that attractive about them right now. And would that be in the reality? I'm kinda wondering where the hell do they go from here? I'm kind of wondering about it. Because as I look at the Knicks right now. And the dollars that they have on their books. You got cantered eighteen point six million. He wants out he wants to be traded because he's tired of being benched. We got Tim Hardaway who I think is worth as dollars tomorrow. We could play is making seventeen point three million one one next year and a player option that eighteen point nine and a couple of years. I think he's earned that. We wonder about pausing is whether or not even wants to come back. You've got Kevin Knox who started off slow, but it's been balling. But if you the New York Knicks, what are you have to sell? What do you have to offer? And the reason why ask that question is because these gentlemen Brooklyn that's one fifth game in a row last night. Be no Orlando Magic, the Brooklyn. Nets have been balling, somebody better Bray attention, somebody better pay attention to the jobs for I'm sure all marks and Kenny Atkinson la-z-boys doing your better pay attention. And by the way, where you look at their books right now, they're expected to have over sixty million available and cap space. They're expected to have that de ngelo. Russell is balling give the man his respect which do LA how you feel about him being going now if they've of Alonzo ball. How do you feel about that? I don't feel good about it. If I'm the Angelo Russell is balling, ladies and gentlemen, somebody better pay attention. Jared Allen, this shot blocked extraordinaire means only making two million dollars. And he do to make two point three nights there. Somebody. They gave the Dinwiddie some money, but guess what it ain't gonna blow away your cap is not going to prevent them from doing what they need to do tomorrow. Carol is at fifty four million. But he's in the last year this deal. I'm just looking at the right now. They bought out Kenneth Farid. So he could go to Houston. Look, they got some money. And they got a young team that can play with a coach that can coach. What an executive knows how to run a basketball operations. I got news for you. When you look at the tree of pop of it, you know, because of the Buddha and of the world that come from him Demonte Williams of the world because the Browns and Philly that come for Popovich. That's a hell of a lot better tree than Bill Bella texts in New England. I'm telling you right now. I mean, this stuff is impressive. The brooklyn. That's a scare the hell out of me because I've been a lifelong Knicks fan, but I am fair. I I've said a less we to get and I'm gonna keep saying it as long as they keep proving it, I'm incredibly impressed with what I see the Brooklyn. That's doing this is something special who out Sacramento about twenty nine other day. I was raving about them and Sacramento. And then they said this though, put Sacramento class watch what we do against and bloom out. Somebody better pay attention to these nets. And nobody should be paying attention to them more than the Knicks. Because of the net end up getting one of these more key guys and the next no one. The Knicks finished. If the Knicks don't get the number one overall, ping or number two overall where their position the draft Asya Williamson RJ Barrett. Plus, they don't get.

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.
