RJ Barrett suggested the Knicks can’t worry about what outsiders think or predict for the season.
“I think we will always be doubted and overlooked regardless,” Barrett said, via Zach Braziller of the New York Post. “That’s not really what matters. We want to win. People can say we’re the greatest team ever or we’re the worst team ever, we’re trying to win. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says, except the people who are there fighting and working together every day. … We know the expectations we have of ourselves and we work to those standards every day”.
