There’s a strange basketball feeling in this city — hope

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Try youth and development. It’s so crazy, it just might work. And that’s what both the Knicks and the Nets are discovering this season.

Maybe a trip to Brooklyn can cure Knicks’ travel ills

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — The Knicks are about to experience perhaps the most accursed four-letter word in their vocabulary. Road.

‘You know he’s 19?’: Knicks rookie growing before their eyes

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina stood up to LeBron James, even — gasp! — shoved the King. He went up against fellow rookie Lonzo Ball, who has about three tons of hype on him.

Why hurting Enes Kanter won’t stop: the season of heartbreak

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Enes Kanter is barely over 50 percent healthy with a sore back and hip. Yet the Knicks center wants to keep playing. Why? The 2014-15 season.

Luke Walton: Phil Jackson deserved better from Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Lakers coach Luke Walton won’t use the triangle with the Lakers but wished it had worked in New York and wasn’t “in favor’’ of Phil Jackson’s termination last June.

No foul trouble, no problem in Beasley’s big finish

Knicks’ ‘other’ rookie point guard shined against Lonzo Ball

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Lonzo Ball was the rookie point guard that the masses flocked to the Garden to eyeball Tuesday. The young Lakers stud did not disappoint. But neither did the Knicks’ guy, Frank Ntilikina. Maybe seeing the 6-foot-6 Ball, who was the No. 2 pick in the draft, revved up the fellow 19-year-old’s blood. “I have the...

Is this the revival of Knicks’ fallen point guard?

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Knicks point guard Jarrett Jack used flawless logic while praising teammate Ron Baker. “You never know what may come your way, but you’ve got to be ready for it,” Jack said. “If you’re not ready for the opportunity that comes your way, what’s the point of the opportunity?” The point was Baker was ready.
