For those who weren’t among the 1000 or so to make Saturday’s open practice at Columbia, Terry and Tray have you covered. BennyBuckets71 from Posting & Toasting also did a nice writeup on his top ten observations from the day.
All the soundbites from today’s media access with Scott, Steve, Fiz and the players.
The Knicks' defense last year was a mess, most notably on the perimeter – 25th in NBA. My biggest issue there was how poor their corner 3 D was.

Spencer Pearlman took some time to break down the Knicks corner-3 defense last year, and why it’s one of the most important things they need to improve in the year ahead.
In the video, he mentions how Mitchell Robinson’s presence should allow defenders to stay home on shooters more easily this season. Sure enough, according to Cleaning the Glass, Knick opponents were 2.9 percent less accurate from the corners when Mitch was in the game last year.
Will Kristaps Porzingis play for the Knicks later on this season? What is the state of the franchise at the moment? Team president Steve Mills answers that and more in his exclusive conversation with Alan Hahn on MSG Networks.
Former New York Knick and current Los Angeles Lakers center Tyson Chandler said the Knicks can sign a “big time” player in the summer of 2019. The Jump then analyzed which intriguing free agents can potentially join Kristaps Porzingis at Madison Square Garden next season.
ESPN insider Brian Windhorst and Hall-of-Famer Tracy McGrady both agree with Chandler’s assessment that the Knicks can land a big time player.
Windhorst thinks the Knicks are hoping for the “combo” of getting a high draft pick and a top free agent this summer. He adds that the spread of possibilities for the Knicks ranges from winning the lottery, trading the pick for Anthony Davis, AND signing Kevin Durant to finishing 9th in the lottery and ending up without any impact player.
It’s going to be a roller coaster leading up to July!
David Fizdale shares what life is like as the head coach of the New York Knicks, what type of music he listens to (hint: he tried listening to some Spanish rap with Kristaps Porzingis in Latvia) and what it was like growing up in LA.

David Fizdale continues to invite Knicks legends to meet with his young team. Most recently, it was Bernard King. The New York City scoring legend paid particular attention to Kevin Knox.
“I really want to build a relationship with [Bernard King] and Kevin,” Fizdale said via Marc Berman of the New York Post. “No one can talk about scoring and preparing and having a game built for certain areas of the floor better than Bernard King. And he’s ours, so I’m going to use him the best I can. You can see they’re over there talking now as we speak. I just think he’s going to be a great influence on Kevin.”
Great to see Bernard King excited to take Fizdale up on his offer.
