NY Daily News- The New York Knicks will hold their training camp at the United States Military Academy for the first time since 1966.
The team says Thursday it will practice in West Point, New York, from Sept. 30 until Oct. 4 at Christl Arena.
It will be the first training camp under new coach Derek Fisher. The Knicks have been holding camp at their training center in Greenburgh in recent years after having it in Saratoga in former coach Mike D’Antoni’s first two seasons in 2008 and ‘09.
The U.S. national team practiced for a day at West Point before the Basketball World Cup.
Well it looks like basketball’s Bad News Bears are heading up to the military headquarters of our country. What can possibly go wrong? I’m glad you asked!
3:1- Phil Jackson leads a non-violent protest regarding the United States’ military drone policy and is forcibly removed from campus. The seeds are planted for James Dolan to fire Jackson within the year and finally bring back Isiah Thomas.
7:1- J.R. Smith gets caught in a tweeting scandal with a female cadet when his direct message “You trying to get the rifle?” goes public. The tabloids have a field day.
10:1- Iman Shumpert hurts his knee in the first scrimmage and is hobbled for the rest of the season while Knicks fans (including myself) tell themselves he would be an elite defender if healthy. This has absolutely nothing to do with West Point. It’s just Shump being Shump
10000:1- The Knicks make it through the week with no issues and start resembling a contender in the Eastern Conference.Follow @TheClemReport
