NBA: New York Knicks at Denver Nuggets Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Happy preseason finale day! We’re just hours away from the Knicks playing their final game of the (pre)season and ending the (pre)season at least one game over .500. Progress!

But in the meantime, let’s catch up on a couple links. Here’s some listening material:

Here’s the word on the street

Ron Baker will be starting in the final preseason game tonight, along with Mitchell Robinson, Tim Hardaway Jr., Lance Thomas and Kevin Knox:


— In addition to Kanter taking a rest tonight, Courtney Lee remains inactive:

— Jordan Ritter Conn over at The Ringer wrote an awesome profile on Enes Kanter.

— Also at The Ringer, Jonathan Tjarks writes about why Kevin Durant might consider joining the Knicks next summer.

— The headline on this Marc Berman article in the New York Post suggests that things are much more bleak with Kevin Knox’s recent preseason struggles, but the article paints a pretty fair picture.

— Rob Wolkenbrod at Daily Knicks writes that tonight could be Ron Baker’s chance to really make a mark and earn his spot on this young Knicks squad.

— Chris Iseman of the Bergen Record writes about Frank Ntilikina’s new challenge from David Fizdale — guarding power forwards.

— Mike Vorkunov openly wonders if Frank Ntilikina is the Knicks’ starting point guard of the future at The Athletic.

— Chris Bosh had a lengthy chat with Knox while he was in town the other day.

— The NY Daily News’ Stefan Bondy writes that while Kristaps Porzingis’ knee is on the mend, Fizdale is working to turn him into a leader.

— Tommy Beer writes about point guards the Knicks could potentially target in 2019 free agency over at Forbes.

— Some doofus said a thing.

That’s all for now! See you guys for the game later.
