Al Iannazzone's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Kenyon Martin got in Ivan Johnson’s face after he and J.R. Smith got tangled up. Martin said he told Johnson:
“not here, not today.”
Martin has always been one to get his teammates’ back. It’s another example of the toughness he brings to the Knicks.
“You know what I do, man,” Martin said. “I’ve got to protect my guys. Him and J.R. got tangled up or what not and I just let him know, ‘Not here, not today.’ It won’t go past today. It’s just basketball.
“That’s what I’m going to do no matter who it is. Whether it’s Tyson, Sheed, don’t matter who it is. I take up for my guys no matter, just to let them know we’re a team out here so I got their back no matter what."
