Knicks experiment with intriguing RJ Barrett-ran offense

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Dennis Smith Jr., Elfrid Payton and Frank Ntilikina may have more than each other to worry about. No, the Knicks aren’t making a trade for a point guard.

Julius Randle confident he can break sad Knicks’ All-Star drought

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — So much of last season was spent pining over the numerous All-Stars heading to free agency. So much of the offseason was spent lamenting how hard the Knicks swung and how badly they missed on every name planned for the Madison Square Garden marquee.

Knicks’ Ignas Brazdeikis struggling to find his footing

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Ignas Brazdeikis, the Knicks’ second-round pick, showed plenty of dazzle in summer league in Las Vegas, averaging 15.4 points on 51 percent shooting, including a 30-point outing.

Worst part of this Knicks mess is painfully familiar

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Taj Gibson said the Knicks got complacent. That was his best explanation after Friday’s horrific 115-99 preseason loss to the woeful Wizards in the first preseason game at the Garden. The Knicks had pummeled the same Wizards’ club Monday, but four days later were ransacked during a 41-17 second period. They allowed Washington to make...

Knicks’ Marcus Morris wasn’t ‘cool with Kevin Durant’s dig

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Marcus Morris is cool with the NBA for deciding against taking any action on him for Monday’s Wizards’ incident but not so cool with Kevin Durant.

MKCA — Make Knicks Cool Again — will take time as loss shows

NY Post (Marc Berman) — That was so uncool. New Knicks enforcer Marcus Morris said the club would protect its home court this season, promising, “No one’s coming in there and disrespecting us.” That’s exactly what happened. The Knicks were “disrespected’’ on their home floor by the woeful Wizards in Friday’s home preseason opener, a 115-99 rout. They were outclassed...

RJ Barrett a bright spot, but Knicks have lots of work to do

NY Post (Peter Botte) — How many 50-17 runs do you think the 2003-04 Pistons allowed at home to close out a first half?

There’s only one way for Knicks to answer Kevin Durant’s sucker punch

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Garden opens for Knicks business Friday with the Knicks’ first preseason home game against the Wizards. The arena may burst with noise because the arena has stayed mostly full amid the depressing six-year playoff drought.

No-star Knicks get a look at their inspiration

NY Post (Peter Botte) — The Knicks surrounded their guest lecturer on the practice court Thursday, and David Fizdale only can hope what Ben Wallace had to say resonated with his team.

Kristaps Porzingis’ impressive return is everything Knicks fear

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — It could be hard to watch the Knicks again this season. It could be even harder to watch the Mavericks.
