“I wear that Knick uniform with pride and I’m going to continue to fight while it’s across my chest.” Thomas said he wants to impart that passion and pride to his younger teammates. “Play like you’re playing for your home team. What effort would you give if you were playing (for) your team that you grew up loving? That’s the approach that I go with every time I play and I want to make sure everyone has that same (approach).” Thomas, who has been a Knick since January 2015, adds: “I’ve been through the losing seasons here and tough times. I want to make sure I do everything in my power to make sure our young guys don’t have to experience it.” – via Ian Begley, ESPN
