The Windy Apple:
Why did you want to be a Knick?
“It’s the greatest city in the world, the greatest place to play basketball, the greatest people in the world- vert interesting people. At the same time, there’s people here that are very true, very loyal, and will tell you how it is. Some people don’t wanna accept that.”
On being called a selfish player:
Out of everything that I was going through, that was the most hurtful thing to hear.
What’s the pressure like to bring a title back to this city?
It’s pressure to win a championship. If you’re not ready to embrace that pressure, there’s no need for you to be here. That’s one of the reasons why I came to New York, I wanted to embrace the pressure, I wanted to embrace the moment, embrace the city. Not a lot of people can step out there and say they can do that.
