Though the Knicks had plenty of notable representation in Houston for NBA All-Star Weekend 2013, such a weekend was undeniably filled with a fair amount of respective highs and lows.Fresh with reaction straight from Houston, myself and Phife Dawg of "A Tribe Called Quest" hit you hard with our thoughts from the weekend's array of festivities in the latest edition of the KnicksJournal.com Podcast.With so much hype surrounding James "Flight" White heading into the weekend, Phife and I kick things off by discussing the swingman's failure to meet expectations, and what that meant for the Sprite Slam-Dunk Contest's continued fall from prominence.From there, we touch on some of the weekend's other notable topics, such as how the other Knicks fared in Houston, as well as the greatness and recent rise of Kyrie Irving and other young all-stars.A longtime NBA with great appreciation for the league's rich history, Phife also shares his thoughts about the most recent ongoing comparisons between Michael Jordan and the likes of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. Who deserves to truly be called the best and why? Phife and I have the answers to those very questions.It wouldn't be right if we didn't close things off with a little Knicks conversation, and that we did. We examine the week ahead for New York as they look to start the second half of the season off on the right foot. With the NBA trading deadline coming on Thursday, who will stay and who will go? What moves should the Knicks consider? Check us out to hear what we think.Enjoy! As always, you can follow me on Twitter @KnicksJournal and hit up Phife Dawg as well @IamThePHIFER.
