Fisher: There will be 'boundaries' with Phil

Derek Fisher wants to learn as much as he can from Phil Jackson. But Fisher said Friday that there will be “boundaries” in his relationship with the Knicks’ president.

Fish: 4 starting spots are up for grabs

The start of the regular season is still four weeks away. So it makes sense that Derek Fisher wasn’t ready to announce his starting lineup on Friday. “The only person that I know for sure is going to probably start is No. 7 [Carmelo Anthony],” Fisher said. “Everything else ... we haven't practiced yet and so part of going to practice and starting training camp is learning who your team is and how different players work together.

Amar'e Stoudemire didn’t need to rehab any injuries over the summer. But the Knicks are still proceeding with caution when it comes to the $100 million forward. “Amar'e physically looks great. Looks like he’s in fantastic shape,” Derek Fisher said on Friday. “He’s very focused on coming into this season healthy and I think he’s accomplished that goal. ... His knees will be an issue at some point, just manage his minutes in some respects, how we’ll limit him in practice, give him some days to get back up to speed and get some rest.

De Blasio ribs Fisher: 'No pressure at all'

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday offered a playful reminder to Derek Fisher about the pressure he faces as Knicks coach. “As a New Yorker, I want to say that we love the Knicks,” de Blasio said at an NBA Cares event on Staten Island. “I said before: ‘Derek, there’s no pressure on you at all.
