Tim Hardaway Jr. embracing being the Knicks’ No. 1 option

Tim Hardaway Jr., the D-Leaguer and ground-up Atlanta reclamation project. Tim Hardaway Jr., the opportune free agent and recipient of...

Robinson, the Knicks’ second-round pick, will return to the floor for the preseason finale Friday against the Nets after missing the past two games due to a sprained ankle. But the absence underlined...

The Kevin Knox hype has stopped abruptly

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The runaway hype for rookie lottery pick Kevin Knox was fast, and now he admits he’s playing too fast. Knox’s preseason has taken a decided downturn, especially in his first two games at the Garden. In his new home, Knox is shooting 8-of-28 with 10 turnovers. That’s not exactly Rookie-of-the-Year-contender numbers. According to the former...

Chris Bosh: Fizdale will land Knicks free-agent star they need

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Chris Bosh isn’t sure if he will play again, but he said he will give himself until the All-Star break to make that decision. But Bosh is sure of one thing.

Ntilikina complicates his point-guard shot on bad day for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks will likely have more problems than just at point guard this season, but coach David Fizdale was tinkering at that position Monday night. In the Knicks’ sobering 110-98 preseason loss to the Wizards, Frank Ntilikina made his first start this preseason and first start of his career at point guard to mixed results....

Ron Baker’s ‘havoc mindset’ has him near Knicks roster spot

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks coach David Fizdale is falling for guard Ron Baker in the same way ex-Knick president Phil Jackson and former coach Jeff Hornacek once did. If there was doubt Baker had his 15-man roster spot sewn up, it may have been erased the moment he hit the deck for a loose ball in Brooklyn Wednesday....

Knicks already fixing concerning Jeff Hornacek trend

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Good coaching takes so many forms — even seemingly simple ideas such as getting off to better starts in the third quarter. Knicks coach David Fizdale has made it his obsession. The Knicks were one of the worst clubs coming out after halftime last season and Trey Burke indicated the club wasn’t prepared — an...

How the Knicks’ starting backcourt will be decided

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The best preseason performance so far by a New York-area point guard belongs to Kyrie Irving, who claimed at a Celtics fanfest he will re-sign with the team and forget about free agency. Right, and the Earth is flat — another one of Irving’s pronouncements. To date, none of the three Knicks point guards has...

Fizdale latest Knicks coach to see Lance Thomas’ leadership

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Lance Thomas was named starting power forward for the Knicks’ preseason opener and has done nothing to lose his grip on the job. A co-captain last season, Thomas’ leadership is exemplary in setting a defensive tone and he has grown on the offensive end. But coach David Fizdale most appreciates the take-charge attitude. “Lance is...

David Fizdale has been the real star of the Knicks’ preseason

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Three cheers for David Fizdale. As in the Knicks’ 3-0 record so far in the preseason. If you don’t think the Knicks’ new charismatic coach is excited about his team’s record, think again. Fizdale does things and acts differently than most NBA coaches. So far, he has done everything right since training camp opened and...

Noah Vonleh might by playing his way into Knicks’ plans

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — David Fizdale inserted Emmanuel Mudiay into Friday’s starting lineup in hopes of busting the once-hyped prospect out of his shooting slump. Instead, the coach watched another former lottery pick break out. Noah Vonleh increased the likelihood the Knicks hang onto the 2014 ninth-overall pick after posting 10 points and 11 rebounds in the team’s 106-100...

Frank Ntilikina’s role becomes a little bit clearer against Pelicans

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Kevin Knox was thrust into a demanding spotlight the moment his name was uttered by Commissioner Adam Silver as the ninth-overall pick in this year’s NBA draft. Knox tasted a sample of such interest — and scrutiny — in his lone season at Kentucky, and is certain to face far more as a first-round pick...

Kyrie Irving may have just dashed Knicks fans’ dreams

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — It’s time to put those “Kyrie Irving” Knicks jerseys on hold. The Celtics point guard doesn’t sound like a man with a plan to hit the free-agent market next summer, instead telling fans at a team event he intends on re-signing with Boston. “If you guys will have me back, I plan on re-signing here,”...

Enes Kanter not yet ready to give up job to talented rookie big man

NY Post (Marc Berman) — While the new guy, uber-athletic rookie center Mitchell Robinson, grabs all the headlines, old-schooler Enes Kanter is still grabbing all the rebounds. Knicks coach David Fizdale talks up the 26-year-old Kanter as a basketball dinosaur but a bull-like force he’s glad to have. For now. Fizdale has noted his improvement as a more active defender,...
