Michael Jordan and Reggie Miller are the first two names that come to mind when thinking of New York City’s most hated NBA villains over the last 30 years. Trae Young has all the traits to make it a trio, and he showed them off in the Hawks 107-105 win over the Knicks on Sunday.

Miller appeared on “The Dan Patrick Show” Monday with his thoughts on this Hawks team and their star guard embracing the “F-You” chants in Madison Square Garden. 

“There is nothing better Mr. Trae Young, than listening to a rat pee on cotton in there,” a bouncing Miller said when he heard Trae Young’s postgame comments. “It is so quiet you can hear it; you can hear it!”

The former-Pacer great is one of the most well-known villains in league history because of his playoff battles with the Knicks. ESPN immortalized the rivalry in the “30 For 30: Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks” documentary which highlighted the 1995 Eastern Conference Finals. The sharpshooter famously scored eight points in the final six seconds of game one to pull off a miraculous comeback against New York. 

Reggie Miller went on to describe the impact of the nationwide awakening around the Knicks this season with Patrick.

“See Atlanta has never really had a true home court because everyone travels and lives in Atlanta now, so this will be a very pro-Knicks crowd in Atlanta,” Miller said. “I know Spike [Lee] is going to travel there. He went to Morehouse [College]. So you know Spike is going to be in the building, so the Knicks can win on the road, I think that goes seven games.”

Young will be a big reason why the Hawks move on if they hold onto this 1-0 series lead. The third-year guard had a historic playoff debut, putting up 32 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds. According to Kirk Goldsberry, he is the first player since 2009 to have 25-plus points and 10-plus assists in their playoff debut.

“He has the type of game that can shut people up,” Reggie Miller said on Young embracing the hatred. “Mr. Trae Young bring it on! His shoulders look broad; it’s only going to get worse from here on out.”

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
