Rift between Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis widens with reported firing of his favorite assistant

Limited Derek Rivers Jersey The Knicks are not renewing the contract of assistant coach Josh Longstaff, a decision that won’t help mend the team’s relationship with star forward Kristaps Porzingis, the New York Daily News reported.

Porzingis has a close relationship with Longstaff, who traveled to Latvia to train Porzingis last season. Porzingis even requested that Longstaff serve as an assistant on the Latvian national team during this summer’s European championships.

[Thompson] scored the same amount of points as me and Shaq. And had three whole rebounds, Barkley stated. Let me tell you something, I’m a fat old dude. If they put me in a NBA game right now for 20 minutes, I could get three rebounds.

Could the 54-year-old Barkley really get three rebounds? He earned the nickname The Round Mound of Rebound during his playing days, but it’s hard to imagine him actually going out and doing that now. But that’s besides the point.

Barkley was just bringing home the point that Thompson has been awful. Stephen Curry had more rebounds in Game 3 (13) than Thompson has in the entire series (11).

The Cavs gave Thompson a large contract before last season, and appeared to be worth it at the time. But he’s not living up to expectations in this series, and his performance may have the Cavs thinking about what they want to do with the cap space he’s currently taking up.
