There are some great interviews with New York Knicks players this week. Get to know Emmanuel Mudiay and Michael Beasley a little better.
Emmanuel Mudiay of the New York Knicks joined SNY’s Taylor Rooks on the ‘TimeOut with Taylor Rooks’ podcast. Rooks got a chance to ask Mudiay about his relationship with Frank Ntilikina. We’ve heard from Ntilikina about the dynamic between the two, but Rooks gets to hear Mudiay’s side of the story.

The one thing you can say about both Mudiay and Ntilikina is that they are handling themselves very well. They are saying all the right things and seem to be taking on their new roles with enthusiasm. They’ve both shown flashes of brilliance in recent games and their development is really becoming the final chapter of this Knicks season.
And of course, I’m obligated to post the best interview in the history of the world. Rooks is trying her best to explain her point, but Michael Beasley was using 11 percent of his brain. B-Easy is the greatest ever.

For a more serious interview, check out the sitdown interview ESPN’s Chris Haynes has with Beasley and longtime childhood friend, Kevin Durant. This should be an interesting interview based on the dynamic between Beasley and Durant. They both were picked second overall in the NBA Draft after highly successful high school and college careers. They were both one-and-dones destined for NBA careers as All-Stars.
Durant has lived up to and perhaps exceeded any expectations, while Beasley’s career has been somewhat of a bumpy ride. Durant is a surefire Hall of Famer, while Beasley is trying to reinvigorate his career. They should each have an interesting perspective to share. And as we all know, anytime Beasley is giving an interview it is must-watch stuff.
The interview is slated to be released sometime on Wednesday.
