Your New York Knicks landed in
Mulan Milan, Italy late last night, and have spent the last twelve hours or so getting their bearings, coping with jet lag, and logging some practice in anticipation of their Sunday match-up with Armani Jeans MIlano. To get a sense for how the guys are settling in, Twitter just about does the trick. Here's what some of the Knicks have twat today:
Going bak 2 sleep n get some Z's b4 practice
Neat! How about Landry Fields?
Lmao! Meanwhile, Wilson wasn't the only sleepy one. Here's Roger Mason:
We made it to Milan safely. I need a quick nap tho, i have serious jet lag...
Practice came later on. Was it successful, or was it a dogpile of snoozing lagjets? Take the jump to find out!!!1
Practice done! Ready to check out this city. Food? Uh, yeah.
We finished a good practice. This jet lag is no joke, but it was good to run around and get a sweat. Headed to dinner with the team now.

Milan, Italy. We are about to grab dinner. We had a full day an a great practice. Welcome home @gallinari8888
Danilo Gallinari, for the record, has been silent on Twitter since they arrived. He's got bigger pesci to fry right now.
For more on Gallo, check out Howard Beck's excellent piece from today's Times. A sample:
As he strolled through the aisles of pasta and olive oil, Gallinari stopped occasionally to shake hands with well-wishing Knick fans. He is actually recognized more often on the streets of Manhattan than in Milan, where soccer is a religion and basketball is a minor sport. Among basketball icons here, Gallinari would rank well behind his coach,, who starred for Milano in the 1970s and ’80s, leading the club to numerous championships.
"Mike is an idol there," Gallinari said. "He won everything."
