New York Knicks coaching staff Including David Fizdale are working on molding all the new pieces together. All the new additions on a roster causes lack of cohesion which results in lack of trust to a certain extent both offensively and defensively. Julius Randle has been a turnover machine early this season, however, Knick fans shouldn’t worry too much because it’s normal for a young player with a new contract in a bright lighted city like New York to be overanxious. As time goes on the New York Knicks power forward will continue learning his teammates which will allow the game to become easier for him and vice versa.
David Fizdale told Ian Begley of SNY.tv,
“He’s pressing. I thought he was really pressing. He’s one of our horses. I think a lot of it was just he was so hyped up for the game,” Fizdale said. “I might’ve played him too many minutes. Some of his plays were tired plays, I think. I’ll go back and watch the film and see how I can help him.”
David Fizdale also tells Ian Begley about the potential and depth of the New York Knicks roster. The Knicks coach states,
“We have depth, we’ve just got to get them all to play on the same night and get them clicking on the same night. But that’s going to take time obviously. We’ve had three weeks together. But the fact we have the kind of grit that doesn’t lay down, those are two playoff teams we lost to on the road that we had a chance to win those games.”
Julius Randle and the Knicks coaching staff could be in for a long season if things don’t work out. However, the opposite is also possible if the Knicks can right the ship later in the season. Knicks improving will all depend on whether or not players are still buying into Fizdale’s system.
