New York Knicks Rumors
“I think how he deals with it is seen every night,” King said. “He comes to play and delivers every single night. That’s how you deal with it, by being the best player you can possibly be each night you take the floor. I know the difficulties of trying to carry a ballclub. It’s tough. When you’re not winning it’s really, really difficult.”
“I know that Carmelo loves it here in New York,” said King, who grew up in Brooklyn. “I can imagine what it must be like for him, having to think about potentially leaving New York, going somewhere else and pursuing that (championship) goal. Not that he wants to leave New York. He wants it to happen here.”
Ian Begley : NBA’s independent doctor concluded Joakim’s physically able to play. 20-game suspension starts tonight. He’ll miss first 12 games in 17-18.
Joakim Noah returned to the court Tuesday afternoon, donning a Knicks workout jersey and shuffling through a light practice at the team’s training facility. The timing and the significance of the scene were not immaterial.
Although Noah was cleared by Knicks doctors on Monday night to resume practicing, the league has yet to weigh in. Only when it does, and approves Noah’s return to the court, can he begin serving the suspension. If he is cleared by the league before the Knicks host the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, he will miss eight games this season and the first 12 of the 2017-18 campaign. “Right now, it’s just starting my suspension as soon as possible,” Noah said. “And moving on from this.”
