(Phil) Jackson revealed Sunday that he has hired someone to put the team through “mindfulness training” this season.

Amar’e Stoudemire said on Monday that the Knicks met with an instructor during training camp. It is unclear how often the team will undergo training. But Stoudemire intimated that it would continue during the season. And the veteran forward/center thinks the Knicks can benefit from it.

“Everyone has thoughts that creep into their mind. But you want to make sure you eliminate those as quickly as you can,” Stoudemire said. “It will definitely help for sure. It just keeps you focused on the task at hand, it keeps you in tune. There’s so many ups and downs throughout the game of basketball. Having awareness of your mind will definitely help.”
