Alan Hahn

Not right away. RT @3fromthe7: @Wally Szcerzbiak @Alan Hahn @BillPidto You guys think Larkin will play more minutes than Pablo this season?

Alan Hahn

Based on what Fish said last night, seems guys like Larkin and Wear get a lot of burn early in preseason for "future" investment.

Chris Herring

Larkin: Coaches tell him they want him to push ball to see what he can find in transition. Fallback option: to start triangle w 17-18 secs

Alan Hahn

Shane Larkin has great potential as a change-of-pace guard, but he may need to sit and watch for a bit with this new offense.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin has been the consistent 2 PG off the bench for the #Knicks in preseason. Prigioni had a scheduled off night on SAT though.

Steve Popper

Shane Larkin is going to kill at the Garden when the Millrose Games begin.

Alan Hahn

OK, so Larkin, Tim, Iman, Acy and Amare is your 2nd unit of energy. RT @harrycalat: @Alan Hahn JR gonna start bro, just ask him.

Alan Hahn

I like Acy with an "energy" 2nd Unit with Larkin, Iman, JR and Amare. Run-n-Gun.

Jonah Ballow

It's not only the end-to-end speed from Larkin but the quicks too.

Jessica Camerato

Pressey & Larkin participated in same workout for #Celtics last summer. Pressey went undrafted, Larkin picked 18th. Guarding each other now.

Marc Berman

Pablo Prigioni is sitting out tonight on a rest day so lot of Shane Larkin. Unsure if it's good or bad. So fast but so turnover-prone.

Ian Begley

Second unit coming in: Larkin, Hardaway Jr, Stoudemire, JR Smith and Aldrich are on the floor together.

A #Knicks trainer said Shane Larkin ran the 3/4 court sprint in 3.09 seconds. The trainer said this puts him in the top 5 percent in the NBA

Jonah Ballow

Fisher added, "They've developed a quick bond," when referring to Larkin-Hardaway Jr.-Early. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

"I think they like being together" @Derek Fisher responded when asked about the trio of Larkin-Hardaway Jr.-Early we saw at SL & last night

Alan Hahn

Of course there were a few things that were alarming, starting with the issue at the PG position. Pablo/Larkin enough?

Steve Popper

I'll say this: if you see Larkin, THJ, Bargnani, Amar'e and Calderon on the court together going to have rework defensive metrics - infinity

Chris Herring

This Larkin-Prigioni pairing is something I'm curious about. Probably works on offense, but really small backcourt for a struggling defense.

Chris Herring

If Fisher goes w Larkin as 2nd-string PG, that unit will be a track team. If he goes w Pablo -- God Bless him -- it becomes a tortoise race

Jonah Ballow

Larkin didn’t want to admit it when I asked if he was the fastest player on the team. I don’t think it’s a debate.

Fred Kerber

Wholesale subs at 5:35 for #Knicks: Stoudemire, Quincy Acy, Cleanthony Early, Shane Larkin and THardaway Jr

Ian Begley

#Knicks second unit tonight is Amare, Cleanthony, Hardaway Jr, Larkin and Acy.

Jonah Ballow

1st off bench for #Knicks tonight — Larkin, THJ, Early, Acy, STAT. Complete 5-man shift.

Steve Popper

Second unit in as a unit - Larkin, Early, Acy, Amare and Hardaway Jr. And a turnover starts this one, too.

Frank Isola

He's there to settle a score with Berman of the Post. Look it up. RT@Gary Washburn: Barry Larkin here to watch son Shane play for Knicks.

Gary Washburn

Baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin is in the house in Hartford to watch his son Shane play for the #Knicks

Marc Berman

Fisher had nice stuff to say PG Larkin but didn't guarantee him rotation. Says "Lucky to have him. Smart, talented, does little things.''

Cleanthony Early

Happy Birthday To my Bro @shanelarkin_3 show Love to the homie, He a Cool dude! Oh yeah & Watch out… instagram.com/p/tqjCFJF8ke/

Tim Hardaway Jr

Happy B-day to my boy Barry Larkin aka @shanelarkin_3 . The new member of the #tape. instagram.com/p/tqnzA_SYiD/

Alan Hahn

Also, when was the last time #Knicks had a crew of young fellas that bonded like Iman, Tim Jr., Larkin and Early have? All under age of 25.

Alan Hahn

Some interesting role/rotation/minutes battles to watch: Larkin-Pablo, Tim-Iman-JR and Bargnani-Aldrich.

Alan Hahn

A second 5-man unit could be Pablo (or Larkin), with JR, Iman, Amar'e and Andrea. A little more uptempo. Can add Early and Acy for energy.

Alan Hahn

“We want to run and gun and have fun.” - @Tim Hardaway Jr on being leader of the young pups with @Shane Larkin and @Cleanthony Early. #Knicks
