There's a lot going on with the Knicks and it's a Tuesday, which means it's time to get started on a brand new episode of the podcast "Big Apple Buckets". Kazeem Famuyide welcomes the SNY presenter and presenter Maria Marino to the studio.
Maria talks a little about UConn women's basketball and talks to Geno Auriemma. Kaz, Maria, and I investigate Leon Rose's upcoming appointment as the next Knicks President after Steve Mills' release. Is the path of the ex-agent the right one? Can Rose help attract top talent to the franchise? We also split the Marcus Morris deal with the Clippers and Knicks who get the hometown product Moe Harkless back. Did the Knicks do well?
Are the Knicks still alive in a playoff race? We are discussing the recent winning streak in four games that ended in Atlanta with a heartbreaking loss of two overtime hours. We are talking about whether Mike Miller should remain as head coach this season. Would Jeff Van Gundy or Tom Thibodeau be the way to go? Although I'm a fan of one of these seasoned veterinarians with coaching experience, Kaz disagrees and wants the Knicks to keep Miller.
Beat Writer Marc Berman from NY Post Knicks then comes along in his weekly spot. Berman talks about Rose's upcoming job as new president and whether he can steer the franchise in the right direction. What is going on with Allonzo Trier? Why didn't the Knicks trade him? Did someone want him? Is there any chance the Knicks will bring Morris back as a free agent this summer? Miller has done a good job in the meantime, but Berman wrote a story with a short list of candidates. What is the most realistic direction the Knicks would take as head coach?
