The New York Knicks surprised us all with a good — no, a great — 2020-21 campaign. This time around, though, a playoff appearance would surprise absolutely no one. Aside from the continued development of players like RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley, along with the rise to stardom for Julius Randle, New York made some big offseason moves that further strengthen the roster and put them in a position to land in the top half of the Eastern Conference.
The most significant of all those acquisitions was veteran point guard Kemba Walker. Though he's never been on the Knicks before, coming to play at Madison Square Garden is a return of sorts for the Bronx native, and he's thrilled to be back home. Joining Zach Lowe on his podcast, Walker described his feelings as his first season with the Knicks draws near.
