On his new teammates:

It was a good start. It’s almost like the new guys have been here.

It started with George and his on-the-ball pressure and him just running the team. And then the three guys came off the bench. Jordan was — he’s ready to score at any time, but his composure was great. Rodney plays with so much poise, and Larry was just controlling the perimeter, setting great pick-and-rolls. Got him a lob, got him a dunk, so it was a good start for the new guys, a good start for all of us with our revamped team so far.

George Hill, one of LeBron’s new teammates said:

“LeBron said before the game, ‘Who cares about mistakes? Who cares about missed shots? Who cares about all that stuff?'” We weren’t here to be perfect. There was no judgement out there today. Go out there, have fun, take our shots, be ourselves. I think that’s what we tried to do.”

“You have to stay focused and stay with the game plan. You don’t play the scoreboard, you play the game and you always play the game the right way for the full 48 minutes.”

NEW YORK KNICKERBOCKERS

Keith Olbermann of ESPN had an amazing essay dedicated to the New York Knicks. It was mind-blowing. He opened my eyes to my beloved Knicks.  I have been a fan since the mid 70’s. But lately, it’s been hard to follow them.

What happened?

Where did they go wrong?

It’s New York City…The Mecca.

The Knicks should be competing for championships every year!

Who’s to blame?

The players? Coach? Front office?

Regardless of what the experts say, it’s not that hard to get it going and keep it going. Just look at the San Antonio Spurs.

My advice?

Get players who play the right way.

Get good guys. High character.

Make sure they are coachable.

Give contracts to players who want to be in New York.

The Knicks have not won a rings since 1973. That’s 45 years ago!

Check out Olbermann’s piece on the Knicks. It’s worth it.

See the ball. Hit the open man and always play the right way!

We’ve just got to keep pushing and stay positive. For me, I am staying positive and just trying to figure out ways we can get better, what units work well for us on the floor, how we can be more productive, how we can pick someone up when they’re struggling. It’s been tough because we have a few guys that have been struggling as of late.

It’s no time to throw shade about our season. We’ve got to continue to be positive and continue to push forward. We’ve got quite a few games left, and if we’re still serious about the season, then we’ve got to play good ball at some point.

We’ve just got to keep pushing. Stay positive, keep pushing, try to get better, and that’s where it’s at. That’s where it’s at for me.

We’ve got to come out with the right gameplan. We’ve got to come out with a sense of urgency, and we’ve got to play the game the right way and try to sustain some good basketball for 48 minutes.
