The Mike Wise Show debuted on January 14, 2019 and this is his 100th show. To help him celebrate the milestone, two of his best friends join him to look back at 2020 and look ahead to 2021. Harvey Araton, the legendary New York Times journalist and author and Frank Isola of Sirius/XM, YES Network, ESPN, and a 22 year veteran of the NY Daily News spend a great hour together. They reflect on the lives and deaths of David Stern and Kobe Bryant and pull no punches. All three men covered the Knicks for years and take a deep dive into the history of the franchise's dysfunction under James Dolan and even before he owned the team. They discuss how COVID-19 has changed the sports culture, how sports journalism has evolved, and discuss Harvey's new book "Our Last Season: A Writer, A Fan, A Friendship," which examines his relationship with the late Michelle Musler, a devoted Knicks fan with whom Harvey had a decades long friendship. The stories they share are rich in detail and are a fitting way to celebrate Mike's 100th show.
