Tom Thibodeau has been known to get the most out of his players. He coached Derrick Rose during his MVP season, helped Karl-Anthony Towns become an All-Star at 22, and guided Jimmy Butler to a Most Improved Player Award.
With guys like Julius Randle, RJ Barrett & Mitchell Robinson coming back for the Knicks, it’s hard to say what Obi Toppin’s role will be this season. Despite the questions that remain, Toppin is trusting his new head coach.
(Via New York Knicks):
“I feel like he’s a smart guy, he’s not going to put me in a position to fail. He’s always going to put me in a position that he knows I can play and help the team.”
