Fisher Believes Knicks Are Motivated After Trade



“Probably what jumps out the most is you still have to work pretty hard to motivate and inspire guys at this level,’’ (Knicks Coach Derek) Fisher said.

You couldn’t help but think Fisher was referring to some of the guys who were gone — (Samuel) Dalembert, (J.R.) Smith and, to a lesser extent, (Iman) Shumpert, who could never be accused of having the highest basketball IQ for all his gifts.

Fisher also may be pointing to suddenly revived Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jason Smith. The remark showed Fisher was naïve when he took this job, thinking NBA players on guaranteed contracts were going to be supercharged for all 82 games.

Fisher talks about the basketball IQ and new mentality the new players have brought, making a statement Saturday in Charlotte that talent is not everything.
