"I have no problem playing them [the young guys] these guys gotta swim now, there's gonna be some bumps but you learn faster by going though it. I feel very confident throwing these young guys out there and letting them go through the highs and lows of the league"
I Love Coach Fizdale.
David Fizdale talks about Kevin Knox's possibility at starting at SF and having to match up with guys like Lebron and KD.
He also states our troubles at the SF position and hints that Lee and Hardaway at 6"5 could have a hard time playing the 3.
Fizdale got jokes
Kevin Knox said Kristaps Porzingis gave him a call via FaceTime from Spain last night after he was selected by the Knicks.
Kevin Knox says he and Kristaps Porzingis talked about being booed at the draft during their conversation last night. “It’s all motivation. It adds fuel to the fire,” Knox said Porzingis told him. “.... They’ll be cheering for you soon.”
Knox also said that he can't wait to play with KP when he comes back to New York and jokingly said that he got more boo's than KP did when he got drafted.
David Fizdale says there is ‘absolutely’ a chance that Kevin Knox can start at small forward as a 19-year-old rookie.
Fizdale also compared Knox to Jayson Tatum and Mitchell Robinson to Clint Capela and said that there is no problem starting Knox OR Frank because they "gotta swim" and develop through experience.
