Eye on Basketball Podcast: The Knicks' plan with Dan Devine

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

On today's podcast, I'm joined by Dan Devine of Yahoo Sports' Ball Don't Lie blog to discuss the NBA Draft Lottery and the New York Knicks. Before we dive into the Knicks' interesting change of direction, the topic of today is the possible change of the NBA lottery to curb tanking. Is tanking actually an enjoyable experience for the fans of that team because you can see a plan being executed? Does it give hope to those fans for future success? In the system the NBA has, is it really a bad thing? Would an unweighted lottery system get rid of it altogether?

The Knicks are under new direction with the hiring of Phil Jackson and his first couple months on the job have me excited for their future. Is Dan, an avid Knicks fan, as excited as I am for what we're starting to see unfold? Do the Knicks simply have too much work to do first before we can get excited about them? Is Derek Fisher going to be a positive for them? Will James Dolan stay out of the way and does he want to stay out of the way? Who should their next big free agent target be?

We discuss all of this, plus gathering internet writing, delegating tombstone responsibilities, and much more.
