At halftime, McBride spot to a sideline reporter, who asked, “What is the key to your success so far during the Summer League?” McBride responded, “Fitting into the Knicks’ system and listening.”
Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau is a very hard-nosed, tough, defensive-minded coach, like Bob Huggins, and McBride is going to fit in perfectly on the team.
