New York Knicks G Pablo Prigioni endured a less than stellar season with the franchise last year but the efficiency of the team improved when he was on the court.  Recently Prigioni spoke of the re-signing of Carmelo Anthony and also Derek Fisher being in place as the Knicks head coach. 

“When I saw Melo re-sign, the first thing I did was send him a message saying that I was so happy to have a chance to still play with him,” Prigioni said. “And I told him that I’m sure we will play much better next season.....Last year was bad for us.....We have a lot of issues in the first three months. And then when we start to win games and play better but it was too late. I’m trying to forget last year and put my head into the next season. I’m very excited with the changes that the team is doing and I’m completely sure we will play much better. That is my big wish. Play good basketball and make the fans enjoy watching the team play. I feel that we are a strong, serious team.”

On Fisher:

“I think he is a perfect guy to be our coach this year,” Prigioni said. “He has a strong personality to be our leader, a lot of [playing] experience and knows exactly how this league is going. As a great point guard, for sure he can help Jose, the other point guards and me with all his experience. I feel I’m very lucky because I have [had] the opportunity to play with Jason Kidd, And now play for Derek. Two great point guards in the NBA.”
