They challenged each other yesterday and will compete again tomorrow. The Knicks and Bulls will play two consecutive games. Zach LaVine will be the main observer of the match. His name has often been linked to the Knicks of Thibodeau, the coach who in 2017 sent LaVine from Minnesota to Chicago in a trade for Jimmy Butler.
Now Thibodeau has changed his mind. The Knicks manager appreciates LaVine’s improvement and wouldn’t mind having him at the Knicks.
LaVine is a real sniper, and he proved it just yesterday under the eyes of Thibs. He could be the man to get the most points, as LaVine averages 26.8 points and 5.3 assists.
Last summer, SNY revealed that LaVine was on the radar of the Knicks.
“He’s a player who has continued to grow every year,” Thibodeau told LaVine. “He is a great athlete, an elite shooter and a hard worker. I knew he would improve, he plays at a very high level.”
