On behalf of his foundation, Emmanuel Mudiay hosted dozens of young basketball players for a camp at the National Basketball Players Association on Saturday in conjunction with Go Hoop Day. He took some time to answer a few questions about the Knicks. Here, he offers his impressions of new Knicks coach David Fizdale: "I love it man. Fiz, he can connect with us, the younger generation really good. But at the same time he has experience bhe's been a world champion with the Miami Heat. There's nothing that he hasn't seen. He's seen the best of the best. And in a good way, the worst of the worst too. He knows the ins and outs," Mudiay said. "And I've been like a sponge around him, just trying to pick up everything I can pick up. And he's been encouraging not just me but the whole team to continue to develop. One thing I love about him is he's big on development. We're a young team so we've got to development."
