Rick Pitino has the Knicks’ solution at point guard

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Louisville coach Rick Pitino doesn’t like to hear draft analysts downplay 6-foot-3 Donovan Mitchell as an undersized shooting guard.

The real reason behind firing of a Kristaps Porzingis favorite

NY Post (Marc Berman) — This wasn’t about Kristaps Porzingis. The conspiracy theory regarding Knicks assistant coach Josh Longstaff’s departure sounded plausible. But multiple NBA sources who have talked to members of the front office told The Post the Knicks had unofficially decided not to renew Longstaff’s contract before the Kristaps Cold War. Though Longstaff was only informed recently, the...

How Kristaps Porzingis is channeling his frustration

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It would’ve been more appropriate if his opponent were wearing a Phil Jackson mask, but Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis has made good on his promise to take up boxing this offseason.

The only way to save the Knicks is beyond their control

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Danny Ainge had already turned the Celtics down twice. This was 14 years ago, and the Celtics had settled into a most unaccustomed place in the NBA’s stratosphere: No longer powerful enough to contend for championships, not woeful enough to qualify for top-flight draft picks, not attractive enough to lure big-time free agents. The men...

Knicks now curiously allow another Porzingis pal to stay

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The Knicks got rid of one player development coach and Kristaps Porzingis confidant in Josh Longstaff, but they’re keeping another. Dave Bliss will be retained by the team, according to a league source. The pair had been instrumental in tutoring the 21-year-old Porzingis, but Longstaff’s contract wasn’t renewed.

Coughlin over Parcells? Ranking best coaches in NY sports history

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — There are few managers or coaches in recent memory who have gotten the town talking the way Terry Collins has, and does, sometimes in good ways, often in bad ways, always in interesting ways.

This series disaster can push Celtics to pull Carmelo trigger
