Knicks flaws won’t allow for partially tanked season

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks will announce an advertising sponsor to put on their jerseys at a Tuesday press conference. Real-life companies such as “Superior Tank,’’ “May Tank Co.’’ and “Tank Design” lost out. The Knicks didn’t want to reveal their seasonal strategy so blatantly. But the black cat is out of the bag before Halloween. Yes, Phil...

Nets showing signs they could be best basketball team in NYC

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — With Floyd Mayweather seated in the front row, the Nets put a beating on the Knicks that the boxing champion would have been proud of. Yes, it was just preseason.

Knicks set to get one of their guards back vs. Rockets

NY Post (Marc Berman) — At least Ron Baker will be back. Though rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina missed his third straight preseason game Monday against the Rockets with his right-knee bruise, Baker is scheduled to make his preseason debut at the Garden.

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — With Floyd Mayweather seated in the front row, the Nets put a beating on the Knicks that the boxing champion would’ve been proud of.

How summer internship could help Hernangomez separate himself

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Willy Hernangomez did not start for the Spanish national team at the European championships this summer – not with the Gasol brothers going strong. But the 6-foot-11 bullish Spanish center figured as the lock to start for the Knicks in the pivot, especially after gleaning valuable intel from the great Gasols. In addition, Joakim Noah...

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...
