One key part of Knicks future isn’t ready to tank for it

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — A plan is in place. The bar has been dropped.

Joakim Noah blames himself for battling like ‘a rookie’ again

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — Knicks center Joakim Noah used the word “adversity’’ four times during a morning-shootaround interview Friday at Capital One Arena. That’s two less than the number of surgeries he’s had. With six NBA surgeries on his resume, Noah realizes he’s got a steep hill to climb to get significant playing time this season. Noah’s...

Defense the next challenge for Knicks’ Enes Kanter

NY Post (Marc Berman) — WASHINGTON — The Knicks understand Enes Kanter isn’t here to solve their defensive woes. He’s an old-school, 6-foot-11, back-to-the-basket center and voracious offensive rebounder. Defense hasn’t been the new Knicks’ strong suit and he even lost playing time in last season’s playoffs with the Thunder because of that deficiency. After the Knicks allowed 115 points...

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — MSG Network analyst Alan Hahn talks Frank Ntilikina’s potential and the good quiet around the Knicks right now with The Post’s Justin Terranova. Q: What has been your early impression of Ntilikina? A: Defense really stood out more than anything. He has a 7-foot-3 wingspan for a guy who is 6-5, 6-6. He’s smooth and...

Carmelo’s potential replacement turning Knicks’ heads

NY Post (Marc Berman) — If Doug McDermott becomes Carmelo Anthony’s replacement as the Knicks starting small forward, Enes Kanter said he thinks fans will be surprised at the fireworks.

NBA GMs are buying into the Porzingis hype, too

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The NBA’s GMs must have followed Kristaps Porzingis’ Instagram account this summer. Porzingis boldly stated he would be an All-Star in his third season. Wednesday’s annual GM survey confirmed they think so, too. Porzingis finished tied for second with Myles Turner for player most likely to have a breakout season, with 14 percent of the...

One Knick really wanted to take a knee for the anthem

NY Post (Marc Berman) — No offense to commissioner Adam Silver, but new Knicks center Enes Kanter lobbied to take a knee during the national anthem before the preseason opener versus the Nets.

Frank Ntilikina shows signs why he’s Knicks’ PG of the future

NY Post (George Willis) — He looks like he should be getting ready for his first Midnight Madness instead of his first game in the NBA. To say Frank Ntilikina has a baby face is like saying Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has muscles. We might need to check Ntilikina’s I.D. just to prove he’s really 19 years old. Ntilikina’s boyish...

This is the Knicks team Jeff Hornacek wanted all along

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Jeff Hornacek sounds like an unshackled coach. Not only is the Knicks coach free from the triangle edicts of former team president Phil Jackson but he also has gained freedom by no longer having shot-happy scorers named Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose on the roster. Neither player fit Hornacek’s philosophy of a ball-sharing club —...
