Jared Dubin (@JADubin5) of Bloomberg Sports, Grantland, and Hardwood Paroxysm joined us today to talk about the issues in Indiana, the Knicks' playoff hopes, and whether the Nets can make a run. We also discussed UConn's win over Kentucky in the National Championship and made our picks for tonight's games.
Spero Dedes radio voice of the New York Knicks talks with Nolan Silbernagel and Mike Watts about the Knicks desperate quest for the 8th playoff seed in the Eastern Confrence. Spero breaks down Friday night's loss to Wizards and the Knicks final five regular season games. They also analyze the strong play of the Brooklyn Nets.
Spero Dedes, WFUV alumn, radio voice of the Knicks, and NCAA Basketball Broadcaster for CBS Sports joined us today to talk both about the Knicks and the Tournament. He first discusses what Phil Jackson's first moves may be, and the time it'll take to rebuild, and also talks about very strong Michigan St & Michigan teams.
Kenny Ducey and Kevin Kelly talk to The Wall Street Journal's Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) about Phil Jackson's impact on the Knicks' future, the team's relationship with media, James Dolan's image, and Michigan's chances in the NCAA Tournament. Around 33 minutes in, the guys give their picks for the tournament region-by-region.
There was a positive aura encased in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday morning that hadn't been detected by the millions to enter its doors over the past few years.
Reporters and cameramen who would normally dread a 10AM commute to MSG were in a cheerful mood. James Dolan was grinning. Even the coffee was good. The coffee's never good.
Ryan Ruocco (@RyanRuocco), voice of the Nets and the NBA on ESPN and WFUV alumn joins us to discuss the Nets 2014 resurgence and the implications of Phil Jackson coming to the Knicks. We also talk James Harden and do some Wednesday pick 'em.
Jason Concepcion (@Netw3rk) of Grantland joined us to discuss the saddening Knicks, and what the remainder of the year holds for some of the top teams in the East and West. We also take a look at how many more games the Sixers could realistically win this year, the Nets' return to .500, and make some picks for Wednesday night's games.
Kelly and Matt kicked off One on One this week by chatting with Marc Berman, Knicks writer for the New York Post, about the recent Knicks struggles.
Marc talked about the Knicks’ latest home loss to the Warriors and broke down the seemingly disheartened approach New York has been playing with in their recent games.
Marc also gave his take on the struggles of Raymond Felton this season, including Felton’s recent legal troubles, and how that affects his own play and the play of the Knicks.
Kenny Ducey, Matt Rosenfeld, and Kevin Kelly discuss the Knicks' loss to the Heat, and Raymond Felton's off-the-court non-distracting distractions. Also, the Nets have some promise, Jimmer Fredette is available, and Friday night pick 'em.
