The Knicks are fighting with each other. The Nets are reassigning coaches. It's the battle for New York, or at least the right to stay out of the basement and off the back page. Paul Flannery talks with Howard Beck about the state of New York's hapless teams
Nobody puts the fun in dysfunction quite like the Nets and Knicks and to break it all down, Paul Flannery is joined by Bleacher Report's Howard Beck. Among the topics discussed:
1. What's up with Jason Kidd and Lawrence Frank?
2. Is it too early to give up on Kevin Garnett and the Nets' aging collection of stars?
3. That Jim Dolan interview and the questions Howard would have asked.
4. Should the Knicks re-up Carmelo Anthony, and does Melo even want to stay?
5. Can either of these teams turn it around?
