RT @TheAthleticNBA: Before the kid from New York had a career night at The Garden, he sat down with @WillGuillory. @AlvaradoJose15 opens up about his improbable rise to the NBA. "This is about as good of a beginning as I could possibly ask for." Exclusive: https://t.co/H5wVK5j83O https://t.co/sDLUK27B9E
NBA fines the Knicks $25,000 for violating league rules by not making Julius Randle available for a media interview after Thursday’s loss to Pelicans. Randle has stopped doing media after games and that was apparently their last chance before being penalized.
What y’all got!
To put Thursday night in context: * Jose Alvarado had more than 3x as many points as Randle * Alvarado had twice as many assists as Kemba * Alvarado had as many 3PT as Fournier * Alvarado had twice as many steals as NY's entire starting five COMBINED https://t.co/MwH71jqNsu
Thanks Jon! Always means a lot coming from you.
I talked 1-on-1 with Jose Alvarado, the Brooklyn-born kid who got to live out his dream at MSG last night. We talked about his crazy journey to the NBA, why he bet on himself when very few believed and the legacy of Georgia Tech point guards from NY. https://t.co/FMtB04VgNg
