Aspiring hoops stars from Southeast Queens recently got a first-class tutorial at IS 192 in Hollis, when former New York Knicks player Rod Strickland, with microphone top, and current Knicks Assistant Coach Royal Ivey conducted a clinic.

It is the third straight year the Knicks have teamed up with the office of Assemblyman Clyde Vanel to offer the clinic for children in Southeast Queens.

The two spoke with the students on topics from basketball to life in general, and worked with the participants on some of their training.

Strickland, a native of the Bronx, was drafted by the Knicks in 1988 and played for 10 teams in a 17-year career in the National Basketball Association.

Ivey, born in Harlem, played for four NBA teams in 10 seasons from 2004 to 2014.
