Dan Devine of Yahoo Sports' Ball Don't Lie joins me on the podcast today to discuss the state of the New York Knicks. Dan covers the NBA for Yahoo but he's a Knicks fan that has endured some pretty frustrating years. Through the excitement of the Stephon Marbury acquisition years ago to coming out of most of Isiah Thomas' trades with the best player in the deal but the worst long-term prospects for putting a team together, it's shaped the way the fan base has viewed this franchise.
What does that do for how the team is this season? Is it a team that despite its frustrations you'd still want to make the playoffs as an 8-seed? How has the Andrea Bargnani experience been? Has Raymond Felton tested the strongest bonds of fandom? Could the Knicks actually survive a rebuilding process in New York? What's it like to take every other Draft Night off as a fan?
We discuss all of this, plus Twitter with the NBA, profession changing your rooting interests, and much more.
