I joined Jake Asman on The Jake Asman Show on SB Nation Radio on the 4th of July. We discussed the Knicks and Nets moves in NBA free agency so far. Are the Knicks making the right decisions? Are the Nets a championship contender?
The Knicks shocked a lot of people when they abruptly traded Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks along with Courtney Lee, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. In return, they got Dennis Smith Jr., the expiring contracts of DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews, along with two future first-round draft picks. At first, Knicks fans were furious.
As more info came out that Porzingis didn’t wanna be with the Knicks in the future…mixed in with a senseless tweet of a GIF dapping up Luka Doncic, the fan base took a turn on the deal. They also realized that it gives them the opportunity now to sign two max free agents this summer. I explained in my column why the trade actually sets the Knicks up for a hopeful future…if they can make a few splashes in the summer.
The Brooklyn Nets are the hottest team in the NBA since early December…and not enough people are showing them love. Kenny Atkinson has made a team that won 28 games all of last season reach that total before February as they are the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference right now. I wrote a column for WFAN breaking down how impressive the Nets have been, especially with all the injuries they have fought through.

I cover the New York Knicks at SNY’s The Knicks Blog. Check out my instant reactions to some of the 2018-2019 Knicks games this season.
Take a look at my five takeaways on WFAN.com from 2018 Knicks Media Day as they gear up for the 2018-2019 season.
Joakim Noah still has two years left on his contract and a boatload of money. Many say the Knicks should eat the contract and cut him, but I disagree. Check out my latest WFAN column on why the Knicks should keep Noah and play him next season.
