With injuries mounting — including four regulars sidelined, plus star point guard Jalen Brunson among those playing through various ailments — Hart issued a pointed rebuke when asked before Tuesday’s Game 5 at the Garden what he thinks of the outside narrative that Thibodeau is “running guys into the ground.” “You expect ignorance when people have no idea what goes on in this building,” Hart said after the Knicks’ morning shootaround in Tarrytown. “People love to have a narrative or a label and run with it. None of those guys are here watching us practice. None of those guys are watching what we do. “At the end of the day, seventh year of my career, I’ve probably had more off days than I’ve had in other days. We don’t go contact in practice. Everyone thinks we do three-hour practices of scrimmaging. It’s idiotic to put it on him. He’s not going to say anything about it. He’s going to take it on the chin and keep on moving.” -via New York Post / May 14, 2024
