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...

MSG’s Alan Hahn on Ntilikina, Porzingis and all things Knicks

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...

Frank Ntilikina injuries piling up early

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie French point guard Frank Ntilikina will miss Friday’s preseason game in Washington with a bruised right knee.

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. After all, McDermott’s college nickname was “Dougie McBuckets.’’ Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek already has taken a shine to the former Creighton superstar, who Kanter believes is as accurate from beyond...

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. Kanter, who hails from Turkey, instead went along with the idea to lock arms during the “Star Spangled Banner” to show unity against alleged police brutality against...

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 —...

The ads asked fans to “pick a side” in a debate between the franchise being HOPEFUL versus HOPELESS.

The most interesting Knick outdoes himself with LeBron comparison

NY Post (Mark W. Sanchez) — At the very start of the Knicks’ Michael Beasley era, he said he can’t be stopped. We presume he meant on the court. The most enigmatic addition of the Knicks’ offseason is also the biggest addition, according to him, and he seems to one-up himself on bizarre opinions every day. The latest from the most...

The Knicks hate is all over the city

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — The James Dolan anger has started even before the preseason has tipped off. Multiple straphangers, including Jared Mintz at FanRag Sports, photographed the Times Square to Grand Central shuttle with an anti-Knicks ad. The prominent blue and orange shot includes Joakim Noah and Tim Hardaway Jr. Noah is in the second year of a four-year,...

It’s sinking in what losing Carmelo really did for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Carmelo Anthony said this past weekend he feels “born again.’’ So do the Knicks. While Anthony opens in Tulsa, Okla., for his new Thunder team Tuesday against the Rockets, the Melo-free, post-Phil Jackson Knicks are back on Broadway. Brandishing a slew of new faces and a roster bereft of All-Stars, the Knicks will host the...

Frank Ntilikina sets off Knicks’ early health alarms

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The swirling buzz on French rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina slowed Monday, as his Knicks debut in Tuesday’s preseason opener became jeopardized. After a fruitful training camp, the 19-year-old Ntilikina pulled up lame during practice with a sore left groin, shutting it down halfway. Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek wasn’t certain if Ntilikina was a definite...

Carmelo’s Thunder excitement is subtle dig at Knicks left behind

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Carmelo Anthony feels he’s gone from New York to the U.S. Olympic Team again. While Anthony has sustained only losing in New York the past four years, he won two Olympic gold medals as star for Team USA during his six-year, seven-month Knicks stint that ended one week ago. Over the weekend, Anthony said he...

Tim Hardaway Jr. wants to make everyone forget huge contract

NY Post (Marc Berman) — When Tim Hardaway Jr. was introduced to the estimated 4,000 fans inside the Garden for Sunday’s Knicks open practice/intrasquad scrimmage, he heard as loud a cheer as there was for Kristaps Porzingis. If fans still are irate over the contract (four years, $71 million) Hardaway was given in July, they also seemed happy he’s back...
