Knicks book club pays off


By Chris Broussard

On the way home from the Knicks' 0-3 West Coast trip in late November, Al Harrington suggested that he and his teammates read the book "Winning Everyday" by Lou Holtz.

"Everybody looked at me like I was crazy," Harrington said. "But since they've started reading it they've said it's pretty good."

It's the first time in Harrington's two seasons with the Knicks that they've read a book together. But with the effect it's had on their record, it may not be the last. After going 3-13 to start the season, the Knicks have won four of their last six games.

A big fan of Holtz, Harrington's trying to get the collegiate coaching legend to visit and speak with the team.
