news flash:The Knicks are constantly being linked to the next superstar that they will chase…………

Chris Russo is on ESPN for his entertainment value, not his astute sports analysis, as Radio Hall of Famer demonstrated again this week.During his weekly appearance on First Take, Russo attempted to back up a claim recently made by TNT’s Kenny Smith that the New York Knicks will never boast the best player on the court.

While discussing the topic with Stephen A. Smith, Russo looked at his notes and began listing NBA players who are better than anyone on the Knicks.“Randle is a decent player; he’s not a great player. Brunson is a very, very good player, but he’s not a great player,” Russo said of two of the Knicks’ best players.

“And there are other great players in this conference. Butler is a great player, Tatum is a great player, Reggie Brown is a great player. Embiid is a great player. There are too many great players in this conference that the Knicks don’t have. »The Knicks are constantly linked to the next superstar they are looking for and likely won’t be able to acquire him.

LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard and Joel Embiid all made that list. However, Reggie Brown has never been linked to the Knicks, probably because there is no one named Reggie Brown in the NBA. This shouldn’t surprise most of Russo’s audience. He regularly fiddles with the names of prominent sporting terms and figures.

Matt Eberflus, Chris Olave, Saquon Barkley and the Washington Commanders are some of the guys Russo has struggled with lately. But he usually mispronounces names. Reggie Brown appears to be in full makeup.Maybe Russo was talking about Boston Celtics All-Star Jaylen Brown? But what has happened over the past few months to make Russo think Brown is a great player, if that is the case? Last season, JJ Redick called Russo the “absolute worst” because he wanted to argue that Brown isn’t even a top 20 player in the league. Now Brown is suddenly great? Perhaps it was the apparent name change to Reggie that convinced Russo.
