NBA TV did mention it. That youtube video did not have the whole video. Uncut it is a 15 minutes video.
I actually just realized that when I put on NBATv and seen them doing 30 minute spots on each team. The Knicks preview is actually on right now (or at 3? Can't remember)

Toney Douglas has impressed the coaching staff enough to earn playing time when the season opens. Douglas will fill the back-up point guard spot.

"He will be a significant part of the rotation," Mike D'Antoni said. "And hopefully keep growing into a bigger role."

Jordan Hill, selected 8th in this year's draft, will not be part of the Knicks' rotation when their season begins Wednesday in Miami.

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni is looking to show more restraint towards referees this season.

"I've got to do a better job controlling myself with the refs," D'Antoni told the New York Daily News. "I think that it just transfers negative energy to the team. We don't need that. So I'm going to make an effort to be not as emotional with them as I have been."

D'Antoni was whistled for just five technicals last season, far fewer than Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy, who led the league with fifteen.

"I think I will do a better job with the refs," he said. "This is now our second year and our guys know what I'm looking for. So I won't be out there going crazy like I have been at times. I hope not to be yelling and screaming a lot."

The expectations for New York sports franchises are typically high no matter what the circumstances are entering a new season, and the Knicks don’t get any exceptions. Fans, players, coaches, and just about everyone else a.ssociated with team want to see the Knicks snap a six-year playoff drought and make the postseason in 2009-10. It doesn’t matter to anyone that the Knicks are in the second year of their rebuilding process.

“We need to get to the playoffs just to see what it feels like,” said guard Nate Robinson in the MSG Knicks season preview show. “To bring that back to New York I think that would be a beautiful thing.”

The Knicks are coming off an up-and-down season that saw head coach Mike D’Antoni introduce his exciting up-tempo system to the Big Apple, the management make some major player personnel moves and the team make a playoff push that lasted until the end of May. The Knicks finished fifth in the Atlantic Division with a 32-50 record.

In June, the Knicks used their lottery pick to select forward Jordan Hill at No. 8 and bought the 29th pick from the Lakers to select guard Toney Douglas. They also dealt guard Quentin Richardson to Memphis in exchange for 7-foot center Darko Milicic. New York ended its offseason by re-signing restricted free agents David Lee and Robinson days before training camp opened in Saratoga Springs earlier this month.

The main core of players from last season remained intact as Knicks president Donnie Walsh stuck to his original plan of getting under the salary cap for next summer.

“I think we did the best we could do in trying to be competitive for this year and yet retain the salary-cap flexibility that we want next year and the year after,” Walsh said. “That was the goal when I got here and that remains the goal.”

Danilo Gallinari, last year’s first-round pick, might be entering his second season, but the Knicks view him as a key addition to the team. Gallinari played only 28 games (the Knicks went 14-14 with him in the lineup) during his rookie campaign as he battled a nagging back injury. He underwent surgery at the end of the season and is now pain-free entering Wednesday’s regular-season opener in Miami.

The only setback Gallinari faced during training camp was getting his legs back underneath him, which has clearly affected his jump shot. After head coach Mike D’Antoni stated that Gallinari was the best shooter he’s ever seen, Gallinari struggled from the field in seven exhibition games, shooting just 31 percent.

But the Knicks aren’t the least bit concerned of Gallinari’s shooting woes. Gallinari brings a lot more to the table than just knocking down 3-pointers. The team has been very impressed with his defense and ability to find his open teammates when his shot isn’t there.

“He’s 21 years old and he’s still by far the youngest guy on the team,” Walsh said. “He is going to have to get stronger and all that, but the one thing I’m not going to worry about is if he’s not hitting shots because I know he can shoot the ball. The reason I like Danilo is that he can bring a team together. He’s got enough game a feel for the game that he can bring a team together and bring the best out of the other players.”

Wilson Chandler, who has been the starting shooting guard throughout most of camp, is also 100 percent healthy after surgery. Chandler had a procedure done to remove bone spurs in his left ankle in early June. It took him a little while to get his wind back, but he’s ready to begin the 82-game season.

“I just have to play hard to make up for the time I missed,” Chandler said.

The only player to sustain an injury during the preseason was center Eddy Curry, who tore his right calf muscle in the second practice of camp. Curry is currently working on getting back in shape to be able to make an impact this season.

The Knicks finished the preseason with an impressive 5-2 record that included a 108-103 victory over the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden last Tuesday. While their offense only produced 97.6 points per game –below last seasons average of 105.2 – the Knicks looked solid on the defense, an area that they knew they had to work on in order to be successful this season.

The Knicks held opponents under 100 points in five of their seven games exhibition games.

“We have to get our energy level up the whole season and that alone can get you another 10 wins,” D’Antoni said. “We lost a lot of games by five points or less - about 18 - and a lot of that is defense. We have to come up with big stops.”

What to look out for:

The Starters – In the Knicks’ two final dress rehearsals, D’Antoni started Chris Duhon and Chandler in the backcourt with Al Harrington, Lee and Jared Jeffries up front.

The Rotation – D’Antoni typically likes to play just eight or nine players each game. The first players to come off the bench in the last two games were Robinson, Douglas, Milicic and Gallinari.

Jeffries From Long Range – The Knicks big man, who worked on his jumper during the offseason, knocked down at least one 3-pointer in each of the seven preseason games. He made only one last season and four the year before.

Milicic’s D – The Knicks, who ranked last in rejections the last two seasons, now have a legit shot blocker in Milicic. The 7-footer is averaging 1.45 blocks in 211 games over the last three seasons, which is 16th in the NBA among players who have played at least 200 games.

Charles Barkley believes that Donnie Walsh's decision to essentially tank two seasons with the hopes of possibly landing LeBron James is bad management. "When you set up yourself by basically saying, 'We're going to (stink) for the next two or three years,' I don't think there is any way that can be good for your team," Barkley said. "They're not going to win because those guys know they're not going to be here next year. To expect them to give 110% is unrealistic." Seven of the 14 players on the Knicks' roster are in the final year of their contracts, including Al Harrington, Larry Hughes, David Lee and Nate Robinson. Those expiring contracts will create much-needed salary cap space for the 2010 free agent class, possibly featuring James and Dwyane Wade. -- NY Daily News

Pini Gershon, the coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, says he's sorry for his actions during an exhibition game against the Knicks earlier this month.

He sent letters to NBA commissioner David Stern and Knicks president Donnie Walsh, according to the a.ssociated Press.

"Having had time to reflect on my actions while our team was in New York, I would like to apologize to the New York Knicks franchise, the NBA and basketball fans not only at Madison Square Garden but throughout the country," Gershon wrote.

"Our trip to the U.S. was for a wonderful cause -- the children of Migdal Ohr -- and hopefully a few minutes of bad behavior on my behalf won't detract from all the good that was accomplished by our spirited competition with the Knicks and the Clippers."

Gershon received two technical fouls and was ejected in the third quarter of an Oct. 18 loss to New York, but refused to leave the court, delaying the game for eight minutes.

Even though the Knicks have had a singular goal of clearing cap space for 2010, Donnie Walsh isn't strictly waiting for July 1st. There have been many whispers that many of the big names will not leave their current clubs.

"It will affect the way we operate," Walsh says. "Since you can't sign a free agent now, you're watching everything every day. I'll continue to do that. You'll have to react pretty quickly, whoever it is. I have to look at all scenarios and do the right thing when the opportunity appears."

Walsh says he had never targeted any one player to turn around the team.

"When I made the decision to clear salary-cap space, I didn't even know who would be in the free agent class (of 2010)," he says. "I just thought, as a general rule, that's how we had to do it, to get to contending status quicker."

Four of the Knicks? top rotation players ? David Lee, Nate Robinson, Chris Duhon and Al Harrington ? are free agents next summer and may have to be waived to clear cap space. That, too, makes the sales job difficult. There is unquestionably an increased urgency for the Knicks? three best young players ? Gallinari, Chandler and Lee ? to grow up and deliver soon. ?It would be true whether I was going into free agency or not,? said Donnie Walsh, the team president. ?I have confidence that we?ll have good players on this team that free agents will say, ?Yeah, that guy, I?d like to play with him.? ? -- NY Times

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni took a dig at ex-Knick Quentin Richardson, who lost 25 pounds and yesterday earned the starting forward job for the Heat. "Good for him losing weight -- a contract year will do those things to you," D'Antoni cracked. -- NY Post

Dwyane Wade gave the Knicks no love regarding 2010 free agency. The Knicks will lead the league in cap space with an estimated $26 million available -- enough for Wade and a $9M per standout. "I'm not even thinking about it," Wade said of the Knicks. -- NY Post
