PBT Podcast: Knicks start .500, where do they go from here?

New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

The New York Knicks sit at .500 and are the eighth seed in the East at the time this podcast was recorded (and this post went live), which was about what was expected of the team preseason.

Yet things feel worse than that.

Maybe it’s the 25th-ranked defense. Maybe it’s the clunky fit of Julius Randle and RJ Barrett. Maybe it’s coach Tom Thibodeau’s system. Whatever it is, things don’t feel right.

Tommy Beer – author of the “What’s on Tap” newsletter about the Knicks – joins me to break down all-things Knicks. There is the good, such as the play of Jalen Brunson and the fact some of the team’s young potential stars — Quentin Grimes and Immanuel Quickley — are getting healthy.

Then there are so many questions, such as the fit of Randle, is Obi Toppin ready for the big stage, and are the Knicks going to make a bold move at the trade deadline?
