Toney Douglas Open Thread
There isn’t much to talk about in Knick-land these days, save for Toney Douglas. D’Antoni is finally giving him extra minutes, and the rookie is responding. One thing I like about him is his defense. When I sat with him during the preseason on press day he brought up the subject of defense and was reflective about it. Subconsciously I walked away liking him, and couldn’t figure out why. But looking back, it’s because he’s the only player that day who talked about that facet of his game. He’s still raw, and he needs to work on his passing, but I like his effort on D and his shooting is coming around. His TS% is 59.4%, and I don’t expect it to remain that high especially with only taking 1.9 free throws per 36, so we’ll have to check back on that when the season ends.
