Knicks’ David Fizdale Believes Emmanuel Mudiay Is Ascending

Published

The recent production of New York Knicks guard Emmanuel Mudiay has some questioning whether it’s just a fluky hot streak, or a marked step in his development.

Knicks’ head coach David Fizdale believed the latter.

“Now how far it goes from there, it’s going to be what he does. But you get in a third of the season and a guy is consistently putting in 20, 30, 20, 30, six rebounds, six assists constantly doing that (it’s not a fluke),” Fizdale said, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

Over the last 9 games, Mudiay is averaging 20.0 points, 5.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds for New York.

“I think the first thing he had to prove to himself and to everyone was is he a legitimate NBA basketball player and I think that’s proven right now so now the next step is can we get him to really grow and develop and show the consistency of what a lead guard can do? But he’s really, he’s taken off and really gotten better every day.”

Heat’s Udonis Haslem Uncertain About Future

Published

The Miami Heat celebrated the career of Dwyane Wade this past season, ahead of the future Hall of Famer’s retirement at the end of the season, but another franchise legend may be out the door soon as well.

Heat forward Udonis Haslem, who has spent his entire 16-year career with the Heat, reflected on the celebration of Wade.

“Although nothing on the scale of what Dwyane has done for his one last dance, a lot of people feel like I should take the time to be celebrated at some point,” Haslem said, according to Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Personally, as the person I am, I feel like the Haslem family as a whole deserves the opportunity to celebrate when my career does come to an end. So that has some effect on a decision that we make.”

Haslem also commented on an after party following Wade’s final game, which included all of Wade’s family.

“My stepmom wasn’t there, my father wasn’t there, my wife wasn’t there, my kids weren’t there,” Haslem said. “So that wasn’t my moment. That’s what makes it hard, either way.”
