Good day, friends. We've entered what is typically a post-Summer League lull in Knicks activity, with nothing but a few small free agent signings left for New York to do between now and training camp. Thankfully, we've got Olympic games to distract us this year.
Today brings us an exhibition game of particular interest. The U.S. team is in Barcelona for an exhibition game against Argentina, meaning we'll get a look at Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler on the American side AND Pablo Prigioni-- New York's apparent third point guard this season-- on the Argentine squad. This should help give us a decent idea of what the 35 year-old still has to offer as a point guard against top competition-- a first taste of ¡Pablocura! for many Knicks fans.
If you're watching the game today at 3:30 PM EST on
ESPN2 NBA TV, c'mon in here to comment along. If you, like me, will be otherwise occupied/on a plane during today's action, you might like to watch the replay at midnight (thanks to Alan Hahn for that information and a Tribe reference).
Go USA. Go Melo. Go Tyson. Go Pablo.
