Knicks fans always have high expectations, sometimes maybe not even grounded in reality over the years. Before last season, Melo came out on media day and talked about managing expectations with such a young team. But with this roster now and all these veterans, what should the expectations be for the Knicks? ROSE: They’re high. I mean, with these teams right now, they’re saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they’re trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that. And the expectations I think of us, we just want to win. Talking to Melo and all the guys who’ve been around. You’ve got Brandon who just signed for one year, he’s got to show why he’s there.

While heaping major praise on the damage ex-Bulls Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah can do in New York despite their injury-riddled résumés, Thibodeau deflected any notion of being bitter that president Phil Jackson never dialed his number. Instead, Thibodeau, the U.S Olympic team’s assistant coach, jumped at the T’wolves job to become the franchise’s president of basketball operations/head coach — a dual position that was not available in New York.
“The time is now for us,’’ Anthony said Monday. “The time is now for the city and the fans. The time is now. Everybody is tired of waiting and waiting. Now it’s time we can go out there and put a competitive team [on the floor]. For me, the time is now. For us as city and an organization, that should be the mindset — the time is now.’’ Jackson, who said he made the somewhat risky splash to placate Anthony’s desire to take advantage of the final years of his prime, traded for Derrick Rose, the oft-injured former MVP, then signed center Joakim Noah, starting shooting guard Courtney Lee and backup point guard Brandon Jennings.
