What do you think, Coach, As we go into this with the Knicks? These, This is what they have now as they go forward, you go go out and be a hard plan. Bunch of guys fizzes that way. He's going to get him to play hard. I think that's what everybody and Madison Square Garden wants. I don't worry about the name on the back of the jersey. Let's go out there and let's compete. Let's be hard nose and give people some problems. We talked about on the predraft show that if they don't land Durant, there's not a rush to go out and spend the 70 million any which way. And so Randall is a productive player, right? You know the number is a little high, but you've got a ton of cash space of flexibility, just as long as they don't go crazy and start giving out long term deals just to anybody who's got a pulse. But in terms of a guy would come in, rebound the ball finish with a high percentage, and that could do a little stuff off the off the dribble, push the ball up the floor. He's a nice addition for I'm happy for him because he dealt with the turmoil of the Lakers a couple years ago, trying to clear the cap space to get LeBron. Then he dealt with in New Orleans trying to trade for Anthony Davis should be nice and quiet for him. Things ever happening there, your urine? A nice payday. But the thing is, if your Knicks fan you think back the summer of 2010 we want to get LeBron. We've got tomorrow Star tomorrow. Yeah, and this summer and Julius Randle has proven himself not to have health concerns that Mari did. But you had all this excitement, and he may be kind of getting the target of that, even though it's nothing against him and just you know, he's available. He's the guy was available. We talked about them. Maybe on that predraft show, maybe trying to shore up just a short term one year deals. This is not that, of course. Now it's not all the money that they had there, but when you look at the next for agent class coming again? Anthony Davis could be in that class, but the Lakers certainly expect him to resign with them. Draymond Green. Probably the biggest name possibly available, though You just heard, proponents say, and Nick say that that perhaps the words would be interested in working out that extension with him. So I don't know who is coming for the next. Really compared to who? Their fan base. Expectation. Yeah, and there's an argument to be made that it's not next summer. It's two summers from now, which is a long time as people wait. But then again, they've been waiting this long anyway. In New York, it's not like they were really good a couple of years ago. So in all of our air, don't worry. Long suffering Knicks fans you've got You've got a friend in the control room and we might have a friend for you in the next segment to coach you mentioned Coach Fizdale and sort of what he has to deal with in all of this. He also had the expectation. Hey, I might be getting these guys, the owner went on the radio and said big for agents Want to come here? They've traded away Christa for singles. Who, When he was hired, his expectation was I'm gonna get to coach him. What does the coach do now? You say? Oh, G, it's not the name on the back of the jersey. How do you rally this team? You got, You got a pivot. I mean, he's a very good communicator. And so you might have thought you're gonna play one way. And that's just the way that the league is now. With the shorter contracts, you're not gonna be entrenched. We were in Memphis there for eight years. We played the same style. 89 years of shorter contracts. You're gonna have to be able to pivot from year to year and get all you can out of your player. I think that's a good sign. The irony is, if we just remove all the context the Knicks actually have something to be excited about, Right, Dennis Mid Junior, You got Mitchell Robinson. You got Kevin Knox. They're young players were finding their way, but they look like they have a lot of potential. And Julius Randle fits with that age group. The problem is You've been selling the world on massive names. And New York is not a forgiving town. When it comes to things you promise versus things that we got. Yeah, well, I mean, you say forgiving town. We have Stephen a Smith that I'm waiting to hear. Are we able to get him? All right, So we're gonna have him in just a few minutes for one last thing. Think about this is not just a lost Kevin Durant and Kyrie. They lost it to the team that's 20 minutes away. Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube.
