Obi Toppin played shooting games while also seeking advice from New York Knicks striker Kevin Knox, according to the New York Times.
At first glance, it seems a bit ridiculous for one of the nation’s top college players to look to one of the NBA’s most underwhelming prospects for professional life advice. But you never know how previous relationships lead players to connect off the pitch. What matters most from the report is a further detail about Toppin working with former Knicks point guard Rick Brunson, who was Tom Thibodeau’s assistant in Chicago and Minnesota.
As the NYC front office works overtime to build their own board of directors ahead of the November 18th event, it can’t hurt to have reliable sources who have relationships with the Knicks to provide information on a player like Toppin’s game.
