Suddenly the Knicks’ Kevin Knox pick looks even better

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Knicks fans should be thrilled the organization’s higher-ups didn’t listen to them.

The team most likely to end New York’s longest trophy drought

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — May 5 passed without ceremony a few months back, passed without pause, and that was probably for the best.

Why Knicks are a quiet winner of Kawhi Leonard trade

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Spurs’ decision to ship Kawhi Leonard to Canada stands as good news for the Knicks.

The Mario Hezonja scouting report: The flashes and the flaw

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Magic radio analyst Richie Adubato has a Croatian neighbor who gave him a language tip. After every Mario Hezonja 3-pointer, Adubato bellowed, “Gee La Vee, Mario!” on the air. That’s a Croatian expression for “Bravo.’’ The phrase wasn’t uttered nearly enough during Hezonja’s failed three-year run in Orlando. On July 1, the 6-foot-8 forward joined...

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — Imagine the buzz for the Knicks if Kristaps Porzingis were fully healthy entering training camp and had Kevin Knox waiting on him.
