Talking ’90s Knicks With Chris Herring

Talking ’90s Knicks With Chris Herring

NBA scribe Chris Herring joins the show to talk about his book Blood in the Garden


This week we are talking to Chris Herring, New York Times best-selling author of Blood in the Garden: The Flagrant History of the 1990s New York Knicks. We talk about the interesting personalities on the team, Pat Riley’s decision to stick with John Starks during a crucial postseason stretch, and pose some probing hypothetical questions.

We also have Choice Words about Major League Baseball’s refusal to place Barry Bonds in the Hall of Fame—an incredibly shameful decision. Plus, another special playoff edition of Jake’s Takes, including Super Bowl picks. All this and more on this week’s show!
