She puts them on, turns around, and is surprised, and thrilled, staring at a massive picture of her son, David Fizdale, on the marquee outside Madison Square Garden.

Frank Ntilikina question looms large as Knicks eye draft options

NY Post (Marc Berman) — One of Joakim Noah’s confidants believes the Knicks center and Jeff Hornacek made a bad fit from the start because the former coach didn’t prioritize defense and was not structured enough.

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.

David Fizdale must get on New York’s good side — and quick

NY Post (George Willis) — David Fizdale was standing outside of the entrance to Madison Square Garden under a marquee that announced his arrival. “Welcome David Fizdale, New York Knicks Head Coach,” it read in lights.

Knicks still have draft sights on Carmelo Anthony replacement

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. That was what they said. Either somebody lied or the team never got the memo. So Tuesday at the Garden,...

David Fizdale shrugs off Knicks’ point-guard glut with one word

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.
