Immanuel Quickley, R.J. Barrett, and Kevin Knox were fun standouts of the preseason. The Knicks Wall Podcast takes you through what happened.
The New York Knicks were fun in the preseason. They finished 3-1 and the young players we so desperately want to be good, looked good.
Kyle Maggio, Mike Cortez, and Eli Cohen recap the four games, assess R.J. Barrett’s prospects of being good this season, Obi Toppin looking good, Immanuel Quickley being great—and worthy of starting opening night—and Kevin Knox having a resurgence.
All that and more in an episode that was too good Zoom forgot it had a time limit.

The Knicks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the two teams’ pair of matchups at Madison Square Garden as New York’s final tune-up games for the abbreviated preseason going into the 2020–21 NBA regular season. It’s the first for new head coach Tom Thibodeau along with the first beginning of a season for team president Leon Rose.
Fortunately for Rose and Thibodeau, incoming rookies Obi Toppin and Immanuel Quickley had their moments, with the young Knicks contributing to last Friday’s blowout win over the Cavs along with the comeback victory the Wednesday prior. Quickley, 21, has made a case to get the call to start at point guard for the Knicks, too, but the belief for now is veteran floor general Elfrid Payton will resume point guard duties for the season-opener against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, December 23rd.
Listen to The Knicks Wall Podcast guide you through New York’s preseason and what lies ahead for the long down-and-out franchise in 2020–21.
