What are your thoughts on playing in Mike D'antoni's system?
NYK: I love him as a coach! I've been watching him since I was in high school just watching and seeing that he's got that big basketball mind. He's someone I want to learn so much from. Every time I have a conversation with him I want to learn as much as I can. I'm just bring a sponge.

how does it feel knowing that your going to pass the ball to the likes of Melo and STAT
NYK: Oh that's gonna make my decision making a lot easier! They take a lot of pressure off you offensively. I can play free knowing I can play off those guys. I will get a ton of open shots. Now I got to knock them down!

The team needs help defensively. How are you as a defensive player and what can you do to become better defensively?
NYK: I think I am a good on the ball defender as well as playing passing lanes. What I have to get better at is not taking so many chances. It had a lot to do with us losing this year. I took a lot of gambling to take intiative to get a win. I have to tone down the gambling and continue playing solid defense.

What excites you the most about playing in NYC and with this Knicks team?
NYK: With this Knicks team what excites me the most is to play with Chauncey Billups, someone I have idolized for a long time. Most about the city is I know Knicks fans are die hard. I grew up a Bulls fan, and for the Knicks to now have me, everyone in my camp is a Knicks fan. I wore orange and blue in high school, so I have no problem wearing it now!

Welcome Iman! For those of us not too familiar with your game, is there an NBA player you could compare yourself to?
NYK: I don't like to compare myself. I just play the hardest I can and be the best I can be.

welcome! Can you run the P&R with Amar'e?
NYK: Oh yea! I feel like me and Amar'e playing the pick and roll will put a lot of pressure on whoever is trying to defend us.

What are your first impressions of New York City and playing in Madison Square Garden?
NYK: It's the biggest stage. The big stage brings the most out of big players so I am excited to see exactly what I can do. I know that being on a stage like this will bring the best out of me.
Comment From teardrop.jones
From your perspective, what do you think the Knicks need to win a championship at this point?
NYK: Now we just need a bigger defensive presence as a whole, and we need to make sure people don't get second chances. If we can make people get one shot every possession, I think we will be in a better position to win games.
NYK: Alright, thanks everyone for joining me. I look forward to playing my heart out each and every day. Can't wait to see you all at The Garden!
NYK: Thanks Iman for joining us, and for all the fans for submitting questions. Check out our Knicks facebook account for more from Iman throughout the day.
