NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — The Knicks’ golden era was built through the draft.

Raptors’ Danny Green not ready to ponder a Knicks homecoming

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO — When Long Island’s Danny Green re-signed with the Spurs in 2015, ignoring the Knicks’ inquiry, he felt destined to make a third Finals appearance.

Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson’s ESPN reign has no end in sight

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — If only NBA executives felt as strongly about Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson as the two feel about each other.

Jeremy Lin sells New York to Kevin Durant as Knicks now wait

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO — Jeremy Lin is back in the spotlight — in the NBA Finals — though his Raptors’ playoff role has been more of an out-of-the-rotation cheerleader than the star of “Linsanity.” But nobody knows better than Lin what New York feels like and what the Garden sounds like to a basketball star of the...

Van Gundy, Jackson aren’t going there with Kevin Durant doubts

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson had precious little to say on whether they believe Kevin Durant should seriously consider New York as a prime destination.
