  • Stephen A.

  • Let me tell you what it is about Max, Right, Max?

  • Have a personal beef with doling.

  • Leave the beef in the freezer right now next to the chicken.

  • Max, There's no time for that.

  • Okay, look, Leon Roldos Worldwide West are doing are doing a hell of a job right now.

  • And they started from the bottom like you said.

  • But they went, got a coach and Tom Thibodeau, who's all about culture.

  • He's all about culture, a winning coach with a winning record, who knows?

  • He's been out the game for two years, so he had time to reevaluate himself and know that this is a new type of off.

  • This is a new generation of players that he can't practice, that shootarounds, that he have to take it light on their bodies.

  • He knows this now.

  • Now, you look at the Knicks roster.

  • You look at a guy like Mitchell Robinson, Pam up with Obi Topping at the four.

  • You looking at a semi lob city, they're gonna be snatching the screws at the rim.

  • You're talking about excitement.

  • That's what the Knicks have been missing.

  • And then you have a guy in R.

  • J.

  • who's coming back as his in the second year, who did pretty good last year as a rookie.

  • He's coming back.

  • He's gonna be even better.

  • And now, like Stephen A.

  • Smith said, You have $40 million in cap space to go out there and sign someone.

  • Ah, Gordon Haywood, maybe maybe a Fred Vanvleet and go get some energy and some good production at the Garden wing position.

  • And then you still have a guy who I think it's under undervalued and underappreciated.

  • And Mo Harkless, who the Clippers really didn't want to give up.

  • Doc Rivers really didn't want to give up Mo Harkless, and I thought they dropped the ball when they let him go.

  • So you look at the foundation and you look at the structure of the Knicks right now and that look, you should be proud, Max.

  • But once again, your your loyalty is not there.

  • And Stephen A.

  • I don't know how Max was a Laker fan.

  • He was telling for the Clippers all year alone.

  • So you just bouncing around, Max, that's what you all right now?

  • Oh, this this this is Pop.

  • Let me go.

  • Hold about this there and Then let me tell you, Please, please tell you something that is the sorriest defense of the Knicks.

  • I could.

  • That is such that is so hilarious that that sounded like a defense of the Knicks.

  • Think about what you just said.

  • R.

  • J.

  • Barrett was disappointing.

  • Is a rookie.

  • I mean, I know he's a rookie.

  • He's young.

  • He could get better considering his draft position.

  • Let's just, let's just be honest, we were expecting a little more than that.

  • If you had to say, Did he exceed, meet or become below expectations?

  • It?

  • Well, I was OK.

  • Mitchell Robinson's a nice player.

  • He's a rotation piece on a good team, probably not a starter topping.

  • We'll see what he is.

  • Hopefully, he's really good.

  • I'm actually excited to watch and play.

  • I am with you on topping.

  • Who else do we talk about?

  • Let's sign a above average, but not All Star player to a Max contract.

  • You all are celebrating this like it's something that's garbage.

  • What do you think something is many other?

  • It is more than nothing is more than that.

  • Max is something that's a starting point.

  • And let me tell you something about R.

  • J.

  • Barrett while you sitting up there trying toe criticize him.

  • He didn't have structure.

  • The Knicks was dysfunctional last year.

  • How do you expect a rookie to come in and have any type of success when he when he didn't have any type of leadership whatsoever?

  • But Max, let me tell you the other point that I like that KP Hold on, Max.

  • Let me tell you the other point, I like that KP made when KP brought up Tom Thibodeau.

  • If you will recall Max.

  • The Boston Celtics won the title 2007, 2000 and eight.

  • Okay, they went 66 16, who was in the starting lineup for 78 games that year, all 78 games he played.

  • That would be Kendrick Perkins, who was your defensive coordinator.

  • That would be Tom Thibodeau.

  • He would know a thing or two about Tom Thibodeau, and when he said that Tom Thibodeau has learned the error of his ways, I think that's a pivotal point because the Onley knock against Tom Thibodeau has never been his knowledge has never been culture.

  • Being a culture center.

  • That he is, it's been the fact that he was so hard, nose.

  • And the fact that Kendrick is saying he might have learned how to lighten up on the bodies of his players, that's a big, big deal that could ultimately work to the New York Knicks advantage eventually.

  • Well, Stephen A.

  • I'm telling you, this is what I know from having conversations from having conversations with tips, you know me and tips have a close relationship, and I didn't have multiple conversations with him about that.

  • Hey, Tips.

  • You gotta fall back and you gotta, you know, you gotta adjust.

  • If the great Gregg Popovich had to adjust his style of coaching, I'm pretty sure Tom Thibodeau is gonna do to say, But, Max, you know what?

  • I don't know what to say about you.

  • You are disloyal, and you need to put your back a refrigerator like I just told you because you have a trade.

  • A soon as Nolan apologized Charles Oakley publicly, we could start to talk about that.

  • You still wouldn't forget its life giving.

  • You got Israel with Dolan and just that it would be a start that is not accurate.

  • It would be a start expressing cut it with a knife you betrayed New Yorkers.

  • We'll leave it there.

  • Get him out of town.

  • Get Max out of town.

  • Get him out of town.

  • I'm the voice of New York.
