NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — The Heat haven’t brought the same buzz to Madison Square Garden since LeBron James left in the summer of 2014, but the stars he left behind keep leaving New York with the same results.

Giving thanks to Kristaps Porzingis and these other NY sports figures

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — Maybe I’m just getting a little sentimental in my old age. Maybe it’s because I look out the window and what I see — sharp sunshine, long shadows, orange and brown colors scattered across the back yard — yells “Thanksgiving” to me.
