Feb. 24, 2015. What are your impressions of some of the other key players on your team? Jackson: “Jason Smith has really stepped up his game, and before he got hurt, so had Shane Larkin. Unfortunately, Shane hasn’t grown any since the start of the season. Tim Hardaway still shows great potential but has been inconsistent. Jose Calderon expects perfection, and since our operation of the triangle — while improving — remains far from perfect, Jose gets frustrated. When that happens, he gets tight and makes mistakes. Overall, though, and more often than not, everybody plays hard.”

After struggling last season with the Knicks, Shane Larkin is hoping a different system and borough will rejuvenate a career that he believes was stalled by Phil Jackson’s triangle. “(The triangle) just wasn’t the best fit for me,” Larkin said. “It’s a good system but I’m a pick-and-roll point guard. That’s how I got in the NBA, playing pick-and-roll in college. That’s how I got here and now being back in a system where I can play the pick-and-roll and just getting in the lane, create for others, shoot my floater, and do a bunch of other things.”

The Knicks did not try to re-sign Larkin, who was acquired from the Mavericks before last season. “I talked to Billy (King) at 12 midnight, the first minute we could talk,” Larkin said. “I knew they had strong interest. I had some other teams that called but he was the only other GM that called at that time of night and express that type of interest. So just for him to do that showed me that they wanted me here. That was enough for me.”

But Lopez, sitting in Barclays Center shortly after signing a three-year maximum deal, said it was little more than a brief conversation between a former coach & player, and at the end of the day, Brooklyn was where he wanted to be. “I heard from J-Kidd, we talked a little bit, but at the end of the day, I’m here right now. This is where I wanted to be,” Lopez said following a 20-minute press conference introducing Lopez, Thaddeus Young, Thomas Robinson, and Shane Larkin.
