With the new regime of Derek Fisher-Phil Jackson with the New York Knicks, the Knicks offense will be looking a bit different this season.
Last year, most of the Knicks offense was run out of isolation sets and this year, the team will be using the famed triangle offense that Jackson ran in Chicago-Los Angeles.
Yesterday, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony spoke about learning the offense and stated that it was an adjustment as noted by ESPN New York’s Ian Begley:
“It’s an adjustment,” Anthony said, after the Knicks’ preseason win over the Celtics on Saturday. “it’s an adjustment because I’m used to taking my time and seeing where the defense is coming from. And even now, it’s a medium that you’ve got to play with. Sometimes you can hold it a little, sometimes you don’t have it, (you have to) get it out quickly. So it’s an adjustment for me.”
It has also been noted that Carmelo will be playing primarily at the small forward position in this offense and it will be interesting to see how the triangle runs through-out the season in New York.
