What Heat coach would’ve told Knicks about their new coach

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — As they researched the coaching candidacy of David Fizdale, members of the Knicks hierarchy interviewed many of those who had interacted with him in the past.

LeBron, Wade support meant everything to David Fizdale

NY Post (Marc Berman) — David Fizdale wouldn’t bite on LeBron James possibly coming to the Knicks one day, but he did acknowledge a kinship. As an assistant, Fizdale was with James for all of The King’s four seasons in Miami, from 2010 to 2014. When Fizdale was fired by Memphis in late November, James and Dwyane Wade issued a...

Knicks veteran senses Fizdale quality Hornacek never had

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Center Kyle O’Quinn did nothing to dispel the notion the Knicks have hired a head coach who will have a stronger connection to the players than Jeff Hornacek did.

David Fizdale’s first Knicks priority already painfully obvious

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Back in September, when Knicks team president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry flanked then-coach Jeff Hornacek, a prime topic discussed with the media was how the team would develop a “contagious” defensive mindset.

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Among the bazillion and a half topics David Fizdale was asked to discuss at his Knicks introductory press conference at the Garden on Tuesday was the subject of the team’s three young point guards… “Guards,” he said.

Charles Oakley: Fracas video will show Knicks owner is lying

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — Knicks great Charles Oakley on Tuesday once again branded team owner James Dolan a liar, and said a security tape from the night he was dragged out of the Garden — video soon to go public — will back up his claims.

Why Villanova’s Jay Wright took a pass on Knicks interview

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Jay Wright gave the Knicks the Seinfeld “it’s not you, it’s me” line. When the Villanova coach’s agent, Carl Hirsch, told him the Knicks had expressed interest in talking to him about their then-vacant head-coaching position, Wright was flattered. However, he told his agent to tell the Knicks thanks, but no thanks. “It’s not that...

During Tuesday’s introductory press conference, Fizdale acknowledged the Heat’s...
