He chose to play at Kentucky out of Tampa Catholic in Florida and compete for playing time with the other talented players in Lexington, then agreed to play 3-on-3 in workouts when many top prospects prefer to do them individually.And the annual outsized expectations faced by John Calipari’s teams should help Knox prepare for the pressure of New York, perhaps giving him a quicker adjustment period than Frank Ntilikina, the Knicks’ lottery pick last season, had after coming to the U.S. from France.“That actually is going to be up to Kevin, what the learning curve is and how long the adjustment takes,” team president Steve Mills said. “But what I will say is that while all college basketball programs prepare guys to play in the NBA, the sort of pressure and the limelight and the spotlight you’re under when you make a decision to play at Kentucky I think does prepare you in a different way to play in a place like New York. So I think some of the things that are tougher for rookies to make adjustments to are some things that he’s already been through.”The adjustment is likely much longer for 7-footer Mitchell Robinson, who the Knicks took with the No. 36 pick. A high school All-American in 2016-17, he enrolled at Western Kentucky but never played, instead leaving school and opting to train for the draft. He said he worked out daily, but hasn’t played competitively in a year so it’s unknown how soon he could contribute.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READcenter_img In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ “He asked me how the fans reacted and I told him I got the same amount of boos as he got,” Knox said Friday. “He just laughed and he said it’s all motivation and fuel to the fire, and he said just work and he said sooner or later they’ll be cheering for you.”That’s what happened with Porzingis, who quickly won over those who loudly booed his selection in 2015 with his talent, competitiveness and work ethic.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThe Knicks see the same traits in Knox, convincing them that the Kentucky freshman was not only the player to take with the No. 9 pick but that he’s ready to start and match up with the NBA’s best small forwards next season.That’s why they decided a day before the draft they were taking Knox if he was available and didn’t waver from that even when Michael Porter Jr. was still on the board — disappointing some at Barclays Center who chanted for Porter and then booed Knox.

Crystal Palace owner Parish pleased to have rescued Zaha from Man United nightmare

first_imgCrystal Palace owner Steve Parish is proud he rescued Wilfried Zaha from his miserable move to Manchester United.The winger swapped Selhurst Park for Old Trafford in a £15m deal – the last Sir Alex Ferguson ever did at the club – but the player never settled up north.Zaha returned to Palace in the summer on a loan and it was made permanent in January for around £6m.“We were delighted to strike a deal to ensure Wilfried Zaha remains a Palace player,” Parish said.“We were sad to see him depart but thrilled for Wilfried when he made his step up to Manchester United two years ago but unfortunately things didn’t work out for him there.“When we heard we could get him back on loan I was hoping we would eventually be able to turn that into a permanent deal, so I am pleased to have done that now.“It’s brilliant to see him back enjoying his football again with us in the Premier League.” Wilfried Zaha in action for Crystal Palace 1last_img read more
