Phil Jackson on Arron Afflalo: “Some NBA watchers have questioned whether or not Arron has anything left as he nears his 30th birthday, but I’m positive that he does. He has a gym in his Las Vegas home and he works out religiously. Actually, he’s such a hard-worker that he holds his teammates accountable if they try to cut corners in any way. I look for Arron to be a leader on this team. He wanted us and we wanted him, so Arron and the Knicks is a very good match.”

At least eight new players will sport the orange and blue this upcoming season and one of those newcomers expects to step right into a leadership role. Entering his ninth season in the NBA, Arron Afflalo is evolving at this point in his career. “Yeah, no question,” Afflalo replied when asked about accepting a leadership position this year. “I think everybody needs to do there part and be happy about what they can bring to the team. That’s something I feel like with my years of experience and my personality that I can bring to the team for sure.”

But Afflalo, who played 11/2 seasons with Anthony in Denver, thinks the Knicks can make it work. The veteran shooting guard also said Anthony was instrumental in him signing with the Knicks, and he’s happy to be reunited with him. “I believe he had a lot to do with it,” said Afflalo, who signed a two-year, $16-million deal. “I know they value his opinion here in the organization. He was a big part of me getting here. He’s very happy that I’m here. He spoke highly of me when asked, and that’s all you can ask for.”
