It has been a long, winding road for the undrafted guard out of Washington — now with his fifth NBA club (121 career games). After finding a small niche in Chicago, he hopes to better that as a Knick. Holiday’s experience with the Warriors is something he treasures and invokes them often in an interview. He started four games for Golden State when Klay Thompson went down, played 59 total games and got spot duty in five playoff contests. “The Golden State experience was amazing,’’ Holiday told The Post before appearing at the Knicks’ kids camp Friday in the Hamptons. “A group of guys come together the way we did and win a championship was a great experience for me that I’ll learn from — their maturity level. I learned firsthand what it takes to win games. The understanding the team comes before yourself. It was great to be part of team like that.
Rose is one of those stars and Holiday witnessed a different player late in year. “I don’t understand that people didn’t see that Derrick was hurt and he hadn’t had a full year back being healthy,’’ Holiday said. “He now has a full year and full summer. I think he’s going to be dangerous. Being with him by the end of last year, I saw things I didn’t really know he could still do. I didn’t think he’d still be as fast as he was. He’s still explosive, strong, still one of the fastest people in the NBA even after the injury. He’s going to surprise a lot of people.’’
