You have new fodder now because many Knicks fans think your four-year, $71 million deal is the most insane contract they’ve ever seen. Tim Hardaway Jr: I would tell ’em they’re getting a different ballplayer than what they saw previous years. I definitely grew as a ballplayer, grew as a man on and off the floor. … I just want them to know that they’re gonna get the best of Tim Hardaway Jr. 24/7, 365 days of the year, and they won’t regret it. Q: So you’re worth the money? Tim Hardaway Jr: I think so. I know so. I know how much work I’ve put into the offseason, I know how much work I put in during the season, and I don’t think it’s a mistake at all.

Doug McDermott feels valued, he said. His 3-point shooting helps draw defenses and space the floor, particularly when he’s on the court with Russell Westbrook. “And now that we added (Paul George), I think it’ll be probably more important, because we’ve got a lot of talent out there,” McDermott said. “ I look forward to doing that, to spacing the floor, but also showing that I can do more than that.”
Explaining that he cleaned up his act five years ago for the sake of his daughter, Beasley said Smith was continuing an unfair narrative by saying on the radio that the Knicks forward is “smoking something.” Smith’s point – which he hammered home by saying the league needs to test Beasley for weed — was in response to Beasley’s comment two days earlier about himself and three other Knicks being capable of scoring 25 points apiece.
“He’s a liar, bro,” Beasley said. “I love the words he uses, I love how adamant he is, especially when he’s wrong because if you’re not going to stand for yourself, who is going to stand for you? Cool. But it’s like literally, I’ve sat next to guys he was on the TV talking about, and (Smith’s) saying, ‘Man, I just got off the phone with this guy.’ And literally, I’m next to that guy he’s talking about, and he says, ‘Man, I’ve never even been in a room with Stephen A.’ Why does what you say have credibility when literally everybody knows you’re lying about it?”
