The New York Knicks to a pair of franchise legends on Thursday, as Hall of Famers Bill Bradley and Bernard King stopped by practice.
In particular, Bernard imparted some of his wisdom on Kevin Knox, who mentioned that the former scoring champ taught him to make sure he gets to his favorite spots on the court.
Bernard, of course, was the master at getting to his spot, as evidenced in this highlight video set to the Tina Turner classic “Simply the Best.”
In less cordial news, forward Marcus Morris answered questions about the way he spurned the San Antonio Spurs for the Knicks this past summer, a move Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said, “... was handled unprofessionally on a couple of different levels.’’
“I was very surprised but I have nothing but respect for Pop,” Morris replied, per Marc Berman of The Post. “Obviously, they made a big move and on my side things weren’t clear for me so I made a decision based on what I knew and for my family. I hope nothing but the best going forward this season. I’m in New York now. I’m just ready to get started.”
The Knicks open their regular season in San Antonio, with a fired up Hall of Fame coach on the opposing bench out for revenge against Morris. That should be fun...or maybe it won’t be.
Morris also made some comments about protecting the Garden and opponents not coming in and disrespecting the Knicks.
We’ve heard the same thing in every Knicks training camp for the past two decades. Will it actually happen this time? We’ll just have to wait and see.
