The newest member of the Knicks, Ronnie Brewer, joined Joe and Evan on WFAN this afternoon to talk about his role with the team, his unorthodox shot, and his journey through free agency:
What exactly does Ronnie Brewer bring to the table?
Hard worker, hustle player, a very good perimeter defender. I can play up tempo basketball, I can execute offense, and I can make easy plays for guys off the dribble.

I hang my hat on that and try to play as hard as I possibly can night in and night out. I think throughout my career fans have appreciated that and I’m gonna leave it...

Before the 2011-12 season began, no one in the basketball world thought a Harvard alum named Jeremy Lin would become the Tim Tebow-like figure in the NBA. And no one in their right mind thought the New York Knicks would let their media darling slip between their fingers. Well, as of Tuesday’s 10:59 p.m. CST [...]

As NBA teams seemed to prove in last month's rookie draft, as talented a player as Iona College's Scott Machado is, sometimes homegrown products just simply get overlooked.Perhaps among those underrated is Tony Taylor Jr., a 6'3 guard out of George Washington University, who averaged 13.1 points and 4.3 assists during his senior senior in 2011-12.Though Taylor went undrafted...
