Knicks forward Lou Amundson, who has been on 10 different NBA teams — and, subsequently, a part of 10 different NBA locker rooms — told the Daily News he was “a little bit offended by” Trump’s reference. “By him kind of depicting athletes like that, people are asking, is this how we are? So I think it’s just a term he used to make some excuse for it,” he said. “But there is different talk in the locker room than you would normally hear, but I think that it was just an excuse.
“I don’t (use the words Trump said). I personally don’t do that. My sister and my mom, I always picture them in the back of my mind, and whether or not they’d be happy with me if they heard what I was saying. So there is some locker-room talk that’s not the best language and not the best subject matter. But to depict all athletes in that manner, and to try to shrug it off as locker room talk, which evokes athletes, is a little bit offensive to me.”
Of the 18 players in camp, 15 have fully guaranteed pacts, including big men Lou Amundson, Marshall Plumlee and Maurice Ndour. Hornacek said eating contracts is not a problem. “We have a lot of guys under contract and fighting for a place,’’ Hornacek said. “Nobody’s guaranteed. The Knicks organization, they’re not afraid to cut a guy with a guaranteed contract if there’s another player who’s better.’’
