On the occasion of his interview to The Post, Tom Thibodeau spoke of the fact that the Knicks fans see him as a savior:
It is an honor and a privilege to be able to. … I don’t fool myself that I don’t think it will take a lot of work … come and give everything we have every day. Do it for each other, do it for the city, do it for the team, put the team first. … And if we keep doing the right things, the results will take care of themselves. But I think we all know what it will take to do it, and we believe we can do it well.
