The Atlantic Files #137: New York Knicks year in review

This week on The Atlantic Files:

The New York Knicks are just one team in the long line of teams that have reverted to tanking as their strategy to become relevant again. A few seasons have come and gone as the Knicks toiled away in the bottom of the East. This off-season was supposed to be the start of something different, however, it was supposed to be the big change that they needed.

Many big-name free agents were supposed to walk through those doors at Madison Square Garden this summer. Each one of them decided to pass. Julius Randle became the biggest name they could sign, but they did grab themselves a top-notch draft pick. RJ Barrett will try to take them to the promised land, but who will come along on the ride to help him?

Topic Rundown:

2:00 – Initial thoughts of last season
5:45 – Visions of Anthony Davis and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the future
7:50 – Randle a good signing
9:15 – Toughness culture

16:20 – Giving up on French Frank?

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
