The Knicks angered fans with a three-game winning streak, but are now two losers as their West Coast trip continues on Tuesday night in Los Angeles against the Lakers. We have a brand new episode of "Big Apple Buckets" for your listening pleasure.

Kazeem Famuyide opens the podcast and talks about the Knicks playing at least competitively since Mike Miller took over as interim coach. Kaz and I discuss whether the Knicks should trade with Marcus Morris and what they could possibly get for it. We play clips of Carmelo Anthony in the locker room after he returns to Madison Square Garden on New Year's Day. Melo tells of the love he received from fans when he returned, about his time at Knicks, the development of Mitchell Robinson and whether his number 7 should retire from the MSG rafters. Kaz and I discuss whether Melo's number should be withdrawn from the Knicks.

Long-time New York Post Knicks beatwriter Marc Berman walks past his weekly spot. Berman talks about Kevin Knox & # 39; limited time and whether the Knicks would swap him. Berman also discusses Morris & # 39; future, the possibility of a trade, and the kinks that may give him a long-term deal in the off-season. Berman also goes into the trading period and whether the Knicks could eventually win a star like Karl-Anthony Towns.

Former Knicks head coach and current Big East deputy commissioner, Stu Jackson, join the show. He talks about David Stern's death and shares memories of working with Stern in the NBA. Former NBA executive vice president talks about having to discipline players in this position and looks back at the "hip check you hear around the world" in the spotlight and whether he was too young ( then 33) to become NBA head coach. He also explains the appeal of the Big East Conference at the moment.
