Toney Douglas: ‘I Feel We Are a Playoff Team’

by September 02, 2010

The Knicks’ point guard expects Madison Square Garden to host a few postseason games next season. From the NY Post: “Toney Douglas only could laugh when two of the first three questions from young kids at a Knicks youth camp in the Hamptons were on his thoughts on LeBron James choosing Miami over the Knicks. Douglas said he only can control what he can control. What he should have said is he can’t wait to meet James in the playoffs. Because Douglas, the Knicks’ backup point guard, said he thinks his team is going to break its six-year playoff drought. ‘Definitely,’ Douglas said. ‘I feel like have a lot of talent. We just all have to be on one page and make sure everybody is totally on it. I feel we are a playoff team.’ The coaching staff will tell you nobody has worked harder than Douglas this offseason. The second-year Florida State product has done two-a-days at their Westchester compound since the beginning of May — save for a two-week break in July. Douglas, the Knicks’ most tenacious defender, said one of the reasons he has worked so hard is he wants to be a leader this season. There were none during last season’s 29-53 campaign.”
