The Knicks are having trouble sleeping.

It feels like we've learned a lot about the inner workings of the Knicks this week. We've heard Landry Fields and Iman Shumpert show off their hidden talents, caught wind of Steve Novak's cheese fancy, and now this, also from Novak via Al Iannazzone of Newsday:

"It's hard to sleep at night," Steve Novak said during a radio interview on WFAN Thursday. "We have a lot of guys who have trouble sleeping at night."

Well, that's not good! Everybody should be sleeping at night, or at least sleeping by day like Jerome Jordan (the Knicks' first nocturnal/crepuscular player since Erick Strickland) does. What's the solution?

The Knicks were told to drink warm milk or herbal tea or count sheep or even change to firmer mattresses. The doctor, Novak said, gave the players relaxation CDs to help them unwind.

I mean, I guess. That sounds like pretty obvious advice to me. Honestly, why even bother with a doctor when you've got a sleep expert already on staff? Mike Bibby could have solved this problem for everybody.
