I just try to keep it real about everything around here. When someone deserves props, they deserve props. When they don't, they don't. And you guys definitely deserve props.
I took your advice (was that Kyle who told me? Can't remember) and listened to a few podcasts. I thought they were MUCH better than your casts on YouTube. Maybe it's because you guys are not all that comfortable on camera yet? Or Zoom..
Anyway, really enjoyed them and thought all of you guys brought good insight. Including you, Simonetti!
And to 2010 (I think you're the one with the mask)? I enjoyed your insight the most. I could see you being a guest host on podcasts repping the Knicks. I like your vibe, and there's no doubt you know your stuff regarding basketball and the NBA. When you're wearing the mask on YouTube, it's hard to look past it and understand what you're actually trying to convey, so I'm not able to fully appreciate all your basketball knowledge. Great job overall though guys. I mean that sincerely.
One funny note.. I caught myself later in the night singing the No Blood No Foul tune.. it must be catchy because it caught me. 2010 - are you the voice on the tune?
A word of advice while you're still a smaller show.. I really enjoy the 'guest hosts' from RealGM joining the show (and telling the audience their names on RealGm so we know who they are). For those of us who are on this board a lot, it's cool to hear other posters call in that we know from words only. Keep that up for a while.
Maybe if you want the realist Knick fan on this site, you'll ask NewKnicks to come on and bring the smoke. I'm sure a lot of posters would love to get all fired up listening to me keep it real.
When you give the intro and game recap, try to bring a little more energy and make an effort to put your own personality into the recap. No need to be corny or anything, but sometimes it sounds like you're reading an ESPN game recap. I would consider giving 2010 the reigns for the game recap. He has a knack for blending his personality with his basketball knowledge. It's one thing to get someone to tune into the show initially, but it's a completely different thing to keep them around for the whole podcast. Most people make a decision on if they're going to listen to a podcast in the first two minutes. This is not a knock at all, because they are not that bad, but just a thought to keep people around after they initially tune in.
Keep up the good work, fellas. I thoroughly enjoyed the podcasts. So happy I decided to give you guys one more chance away from the cameras.
You see I'm really not that bad of a guy, now am I?
