During the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, one of the most widely discussed stories was about Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook’s relationship. As the New York Times wrote back then, Westbrook and Durant kept their distance. Whenever possible ‘ which was often ‘ they took up residence at opposite ends of the court.

I just got out of my own head and got out of my own way and stopped thinking it was even a thing, you know? I feel like I f’d that up, Durant said. I feel like I just made it a thing when I shouldn’t have been. So it’s cool to kind of get past that and appreciate these guys for who they are and what they do.

Evaluate Jeff Hornacek. The Knicks’ early-season promise was a result of a soft schedule, and the team wilted once things toughened up. Losing Kristaps Porzingis to a knee injury is a tough blow, too. But the Knicks are still ahead of where they probably should be, and Hornacek deserves some credit for that.
