guess who’s back? back again. The fans are back. Tell your friends.
It’s been a long year, but Knicks fans can rejoice. 2,000 fans will return to Madison Square Garden on Tuesday for the first time since March 8. While it is only 10 percent of capacity, 2,000 people can still make some noise and bring some energy to a Knicks team that is only one game. And seventh in the Eastern Conference. Fans are back, Julius Randley is potentially going to be an All-Star and the Knicks are playing great basketball.
There is no better time to tune in with Sal Licata and Jerome “The Junk Yard Dog” Williams in a new episode of the “Big Apple Buckets” podcast, featuring an interview with Knicks standout rookie guard Emmanuel Quick.
Big Apple Bucket with Podcast Sail and the Junk Yard Dog:
- Fan back in the Garden. The impact that will have on young players, the Knicks and their opponents. Even if just 2,000 people, it helps. Going against Steph Curry, with fans, can put on a show.
- Julius Randle is required to be an All-Star. We know she will be on Tuesday night. What have been the main reasons for the Randall reform?
- Kenny Payne coached at Kentucky while Randall was there. He has grown up. Randall became known for his role and became a leader and star for this team.
- Schedule ahead for the Knicks. They have a bunch of games to close the first half in no time. A chance to get .500 in the top five in the Eastern Conference on Tuesday and finish first and potentially finish first.
This day in nix history: Ten years ago, Carmelo Anthony made his New York Knicks debut. Seeing the best Melo memories. Sail explains why he didn’t love Mello, while JYD and I explain why he was so important to the franchise.
Emmanuel Quickly Interview:
Nike Rookie Guard, 2020 SEC Player of the Year
- An early success and now a returning fan at MSG. Her grandmother and aunt will be coming to the games soon, who will be some of the biggest fans.
- NBA life, continuous COVID testing, to wake up early to test. Started getting used to it.
- Dealing with high expectations after a great start to the season.
- CBS Sports gave him a D + grade, with an album on his phone and screenshots of other things, using it as inspiration.
- Unrealistic to play with the Knicks. High-level expectations like Kentucky. Playing in The Garden is like a movie.
- Playing with Derrick Rose in Backcroft. Seeing him playing as a child, he saw one of the two sports as a person. Playing both one and two guards.
- Seeing his floater, Lou Williams plays and draws a foul. Also watching CJ McCollum and his float game.
- How great Randall is as a player and a leader.
- Being trained by great trainers at John Calipari and now Tom Thibodo. If you are not playing well then hold you accountable.
- The epidemic’s 21st birthday, being a lowly man, is like going to the mall, Chinese food is best in the mall. Bowling after the epidemic.
- NYC food, not many places to visit, lives in White Plains. What a wonderful partnership he had with Roshan Nation.
Inside the dog house: In honor of episode 34 of the show, JYD told two fantastic stories about his old partner and the Knicks great Charles Oakley. The first about Oak’s tremendous cooking skills… and the second about him punching Tyrone Hill in the face before a game that didn’t pay $ 10,000 card bets. I follow Samaki Walker-Kobe Bryant’s infamous sucker-punch story and a JYD Nicky Jersey dating app coming from a girl on Bumble.
