Basic Thoughtonomics

Mar 23, 2021

For this episode I'm joined by Marc Berman who covers the Knicks for the NY post. I start out asking him his on how he would summarize/characterize the Knicks surpising season so far (0:42) and whether he thought they'd ever be this good (2:09). I then ask if he thinks Thibs is going to be here long term (3:30). I ask his thoughts on Obi Toppin and his struggles his first season (4:30) We then talk some Immanuel Quickley and his unexpected rise (7:20). We then talk about the urgency the Knicks need to have to finish in the top 6 in the Eastern Conference to avoid the play-in tournament (9:44). I ask his expectations of what he thinks the team can do if they get into the playoffs and if they could maybe make some noise or win a first round depending on the matchup (12:56). I ask his thoughts on Julius Randle unexpected All-Star season (15:22) and what he sees in terms of his role long term (17:20). Lastly we conclude talking about R.J. Barrett's strides in his second season (19:56).
