Jon and JB are joined by the one and only Ian Begley of ESPN. They get his insider’s view on several topics, including what it’s like to cover the team, where the comfort level is between Kristaps Porzingis and the organization, how the locker room is responding to new coach David Fizdale, and what will happen if the Knicks don’t land a big fish in July of 2019.
Longtime Knicks expert Tommy Beer of NBC & Forbes checks in with Jon to go through all the pertinent topics of the moment, including Frank’s development, David Fizdale’s offense, where the veterans fit in, 2019 free agency, what happens to Enes Kanter, and whether the team would ever consider moving on from Tim Hardaway Jr. Tommy then gives his take on the biggest under-the-radar storyline in the NBA.
Michael Nania joins Jon to discuss the Knicks fifth loss in a row. They hit on several topics, including whether we should be worrying about any of the young Knicks, why Enes Kanter is such an imperfect fit on this roster despite his gaudy numbers, whether Trey Burke’s brilliance is a help or a hindrance to the team, and why Fiz needs to continue mixing and matching the vets with the kids.
Jon is joined by FiveThirtyEight’s Chris Herring and Knicks Film School himself, JB, to have a hit-all-the-angles discussion about Frank Ntilikina, including why Chris came away so impressed after his recent piece on Frank and the reason he feels the team would be wise to play the long game with their young guard.
