The big signing for the New York Knicks in the offseason was Galen Bronson, the former Dallas Mavericks point guard.
with nicks open basement For him and the Mavericks after Luka Doncic ran the show, the decision was easy for Bronson and he is now in the Big Apple.
By doing so, he would be coached by his father Rick, whom the Knicks worked on as an assistant coach. More importantly, he will fill a long vacant void and hope to cement the position for years to come.
His presence will make things easier for many of the players on the roster, especially Julius Randle who likes to have the ball in his hands a lot.
A player like Bronson running the show would open up more opportunities for Randall and the rest of the crew, and the 6-foot-8 striker explained a lot during Knicks media day.
Randall details how Bronson helps him
Randle fell from his All-Star level last season and found himself more in line with his career standards, but perhaps Bronson is the key to becoming an All-Star again.
While there are no guarantees, Randall makes it look like he’ll play a big part.
“I think it would be easier for me,” He said at 3:25 mark. “When you have to create a lot and the ball is in your hands, it can be difficult, because the defense is watching you at all times. So, for me, being able to get some things off the ball, whether it’s running on the ground, picking up and rolling, cutting, or Attacking rebounds, or things like that, I think would make the game easier for myself and I’d also be able to help my teammates more.”
Hopefully Bronson will have that effect on the entire team, not just Randle. Another person who plays the ball in their hands a lot is RJ Barrett, but adding a real point guard into the mix will make things easier on this end as well.
It’s no secret that last season has been tough for Randle, and he even hooked up with fans on an occasion or two.
His most prominent confrontation came when the Madison Square Garden crowd presented gesture “reject” While running back to court. Things look like they’re going to be different for him this season, and a lot of that comes down to winning matches.
“When it’s good, it’s easy to be a leader,” Randell said. “When things are not going well and you are going through hardships, I think it is more important. Therefore, I learned a lot.”
The team is saying all the right things on this off-season, but it will be a different story once they are all on the field. There might be some issues early on as everyone gets used to each other, but once that’s all settled, Knicks can make some noise. On paper, it’s a very deep team that can compete with anyone on any night, but the same can be said for last year’s team as well.
