Isaiah Hartenstein on being a second-round pick: 'I got red-flagged on draft night for something (an injury) I didn't have'

Michael Scotto: When you came into the league as a second-round pick, did you have a chip on your shoulder? Isaiah Hartenstein: Yeah. It was a frustrating time, especially going into the draft.

I was projected a lot higher, and then, on draft night, I got red-flagged for something (an injury) I didn’t have. That was frustrating. I think everything happened for a reason. I think I was put in a situation that maybe at the time I didn’t really get it, but I was blessed to learn from Hall of Famers Chris Paul, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and from a big’s standpoint, I had Nenê to help me a lot and Tyson Chandler who was helping me a lot. At the time, I feel like you don’t really get what’s happening, but I think being consistent and changing my mental approach helped a lot.

Figured Thibodeau would’ve gone to Hartenstein at some point in the fourth. A lot of faith in Achiuwa, who’s been active on the boards on a night when Hartenstein isn’t putting up his usual rebounding numbers – 9:57 PM

Mitchell Robinson drawing that offensive foul is big time. Crazy to see that he and Hartenstein have combined for only two rebounds through three quarters. Heat are doing a heck of a job on the glass tonight. – 9:24 PM

If Deuce McBride cuts backdoor, Isaiah Hartenstein will find him. – 8:58 PM

More on this storyline

Michael Scotto: Since coming to New York, what have you thought of your tenure with the Knicks? Isaiah Hartenstein: It’s been great. I feel like the first period was an adjusting period. If you’re not one of the top two guys on a team, you’ll always have to adjust on a team unless you’re in a perfect situation. I think coming here, I adjusted. Thibs (Tom Thibodeau) helped me a lot, especially on the defensive end. I was good with the Clippers defensively, but Thibs really helped me with that, and it probably took me to another step. -via HoopsHype / April 5, 2024
Michael Scotto: What are your thoughts on free agency coming up? Isaiah Hartenstein: I’m focused on what I’m doing right now. I know I’ve put myself in a great position to get a little upgrade. Right now, I’m focused on the Knicks. I love it here, and hopefully, we’ll figure something out, but at the end of the day, business is business. Scotto: If money is equal, you’d stay? Hartenstein: Yeah. -via HoopsHype / April 5, 2024
What’s allowed you to have a career year this season with the Knicks? Isaiah Hartenstein: I think I’m gaining more trust from my teammates. I feel like now it’s kind of going back to how I was playing with the Clippers. We have a lot of unselfish guys. Jalen Brunson‘s playmaking this year has not been talked about enough. How he’s been playmaking this year has made my life easier. I think that’s been big for us, especially with how much they trap him and how well he’s been making reads. -via HoopsHype / April 5, 2024
