According to Hardaway, he is confident that KP will come out with a vengeance in 2021-22 as he looks to retake his All-Star form during his time in New York.

“Being his teammate probably longer anybody on the roster, I know KP,” Hardaway Jr. said, via Grant Afseth of FanNation. “I know he’s back at Latvia busting his tail right now to get back to where he was before the injury when we were with the Knicks. I know how much he loves the game, how much he works and he’s going to do whatever he can to get back to that level of mentality that he had.”
