Courtney Lee on the Knicks: ‘We’re Contenders, Man’

by September 02, 2016

Hope springs eternal in New York—during the offseason, at least.

Courtney Lee joined the Knicks this summer, and considers them to a title contender heading into the 2016-17 campaign.

Lee thinks this squad has the pieces to challenge for a ring; it’ll just be a matter of figuring out team chemistry.

Per Basketball Insiders:

Courtney Lee, New York Knicks: “We’re contenders, man. They didn’t make the playoffs last year, but we’re looking to change that and win big. The ring is the ultimate goal for everybody on the team; I know it is for me. When they talked to me and told me about the pieces they were adding alongside the players who were already there, I didn’t think anything less than a championship [was the goal]. We’re trying to get the Knicks back into the playoffs and win big. …


“Everybody is hungry and everybody has their own motivation or chip on their shoulder. We just need to come together, get that chemistry and see it click. Once everybody is together and everybody is hungry, I think we can be very scary.”
