Eye on Basketball Podcast: Knicks going Fishing
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the Derek Fisher hire for the Knicks, Game 2 of the NBA Finals, and where the series is headed.
Matt Moore joins me from the road to discuss a new coach in New York and Game 2 of the NBA Finals. First, we start with the news that Derek Fisher is getting a huge contract to be the coach of the New York Knicks. Why is he getting so much money without any coaching experience? Is this a good move in the sense he's an extension from Phil Jackson and with the unity from top-to-bottom, they can turn the Knicks into a new type of team? Will Carmelo Anthony buy in?
Then we jump into the awesomeness of Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Did the Miami Heat expose anything against the San Antonio Spurs? Is LeBron James simply too good that you can't stop him from imposing his will? Did the Spurs lose out because of foul trouble? Are they relying on Manu Ginobili too much? Can the Spurs get the ball inside late in games?
We discuss all of this, where the NBA Finals are headed, the dangers of podcasting at a gas station, and much more.
