To the opinionated Charles Oakley, the Knicks carry questions into their second season under Tom Thibodeau. And that starts with Julius Randle. “I always said they haven’t had a star player since Carmelo. Now they got a star,” Oakley told the Daily News. “But there’s a lot of teams that got stars, so can that star get to the next level? I don’t know. Can he win seven games more than last year? Was last year fool’s gold? You don’t want to go back to 7th and 8th seed when you were at 4.”

Harrison Wind: Michael Malone on Nikola Jokic entering the season: “I think he’s in a good place…I think he’s a little bit, probably, fatigued, like most first time dads are. That’s not something that is out of the ordinary. This is life. We’ll help Nikola get through it. That’s where it can’t be all Nikola every night. Other guys have to step up and bring their game and contribute to the cause. We know we’re capable of doing that. The challenge is how consistently can we do that?”
