Knicks center DeAndre Jordan is sensitive about his age and the perception 30 is considered old. In his first game back from a five-game absence with a sprained ankle, Jordan looked like he did in his younger All-NBA days, posting 17 points, 14 rebounds two blocks and going 7-of-8 from the field in Wednesday’s loss at Phoenix. “I didn’t look old?,’’ Jordan said sarcastically. “I feel great. Being out there, I know how to play the game and know my spots. Just get rebounds, block shots, defend. Anything I get offensively, just finish it. I felt good out there tonight.’’
“(GM) Scott Perry and (president) Steve (Mills) had a lot to do with that as well,” Fizdale said. “(DeAndre) sees a situation as a good situation for this year, having a real purpose, and possibly in the future. He’s like having another coach on the bench.” Asked why he decided to stick, Jordan said, “You want me to leave? Why do you keep asking me that? It’s what the league is about. It’s a fraternity. You learn from older guys like I learned from Marcus. Anytime you can help a younger player out that’s what you’re supposed to do. He’s playing well. We’ve played against each other in practice a lot. Its tough battles. He’s talking more. It’s something we all love to see.
