Good news for the Knicks: They went into London, increased international popularity for the NBA, and won their game against the Pistons. Better news for the Knicks: Iman Shumpert was on the court for it.
The energy and intensity that the Knicks got out of Iman Shumpert last year, especially towards the end of the season, helped the Knicks finish strong and make it to the playoffs.

Spike Lee is in London popping off about the Knicks now that he’s done messing up Oldboy. There’s no reason to remake that movie.* I don’t know how he found the time to do all of this in between telling us how Django Unchained isn’t worth seeing even though he hasn’t seen it.
