After going on a tremendous hot streak, the New York Knicks finally lost to the Charlotte Hornets.
Now, the team must find a way to bounce back from the loss and remain in the playoff hunt.
During the postgame interviews, Josh Hart was asked if fatigue played a part in the Knicks finally losing. The veteran guard had one of the best responses possible.
Ian Begley shares the clip from the Knicks’ locker room.
Josh Hart when asked about fatigue factoring in to NYK’s loss to CHA tonight: “You got people getting up at 6 am doing 12 hour shifts. Those people are tired. For us, we’re playing a game…. We gotta keep that in perspective.” Full answer: pic.twitter.com/lh6wBU5Twd

That’s just a phenomenal answer, as it puts things in perspective for a professional athlete. The Knicks guard definitely seems to have learned a thing or two from Damian Lillard, as the Portland Trail Blazers star has made similar comments in the past.
On top of that, it sounds like Hart earned some new fans as well.
Well I didn’t expect to wake up at 3 am and randomly become a josh hart fan but here we are

Josh Hart is a real one.
One of the realist quotes I’ve heard from a professional athlete. Good stuff

Look for the Knicks to possibly get back in the win column on Thursday night as they take on the second-place team in the Western Conference, the Sacramento Kings.
