The Knicks are good. So what's next?
A conversation with Royce Webb about one of the NBA's most interesting teams
The New York Knicks are 11-2 since acquiring OG Anunoby. They’re 28-17 overall, putting them in the top half of the Eastern Conference playoff bracket. And they’re one of most talked-about teams in advance of next month’s NBA trade deadline.
With that in mind, I wanted to have a conversation about where, exactly the Knicks stand, and what, exactly, they should do next. For that conversation, I turned to.
Even if you think you don’t know Royce, you definitely do. He led ESPN’s NBA coverage for a decade, and was with the Worldwide Leader for even longer than that. He had a hand in giving a whole bunch of your favorite writers their start, or in elevating their career in some form or fashion. These days, Royce is writing theSubstack, where you can find a lot of the same type of writing you’d typically have found at ESPN, from the guy who was in charge of steering that ship.
Given that he’s a former editor and I’m more of an analyst, I thought it’d make for an interesting conversation, because we tend to think about things in slightly different ways. In any event, hit the jump for my conversation with Royce.
