Knicks’ logjam at center is already a subplot to watch

NY Post (Alex Squadron) — After Willy Hernangomez made the All-Rookie first team last year, there were high expectations for the Knicks big man entering this season. But in a crowded frontcourt, the 23-year-old still is competing to see the floor at all.

Frank Ntilikina is Knicks’ only hope at point guard

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY – The Knicks point-guard dilemma looked as bad as advertised in the season opener, a 105-84 loss to the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony.

After missing summer league, Ntilikina missed the final four preseason games...

A glimpse at what the Porzingis era will look like for Knicks

One Knicks building block didn’t play much in opener

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Center Willy Hernangomez, the young building block who was a first-team All-Rookie selection, found himself out of the rotation in the season opener Thursday versus the Thunder.

Knicks no match for Carmelo, Thunder in opening-night dud

NY Post (Marc Berman) — OKLAHOMA CITY — Kristaps Porzingis bested Carmelo Anthony, but that was the only thing that went right for the Knicks.

Porzingis outplayed...

MSG would do better without Rangers, Knicks: investor

NY Post (Carleton English) — The Knicks and Rangers aren’t the only franchises at Madison Square Garden not playing up to their potential, one Wall Street investor said Thursday.

Greenberg, speaking...
