When the Knicks reconvene in September for training camp, they'll each have to write a short essay (two pages, double-spaced) entitled "How I Spent My Summer Vacation". Recent stories and quotations give us a little insight into the content of those future essays. A number of Knicks have revealed their summer plans. I've taken the liberty of guessing some of the rest. Without further ado, how a few of the Knicks will spend their summer vacations:
Danilo Galinari: Not playing with the Italian team, we hope.
Eddy Curry: Looking forward to collecting more paychecks, thank you very much.
David Lee: Getting wined and dined by lots of people in suits.
Tracy McGrady: You know...stuff.
Toney Douglas: Working on "everything". Probably preventing wildfires and scrubbing otters as well.
Bill Walker: Losing some weight, apparently. (Recommendation: The "Grapefruit Diet" Diet, a regimen in which you spend 3 months eating only Weird Al Yankovic CDs. You can drink water, too.)
Chris Duhon: Putting the finishing touches on his off-Broadway one-man adaptation of Antz. Hopefully finding a suitable theater.
Earl Barron: Back to the vicuña farm. Rearin' and shearin'.
Sergio Rodriguez: Two words: Kneeboarding, bitches.
Jonathan Bender: Courtship, mounting a female and clutching her thorax with his forelegs, copulation, then getting his head bitten off by his mate.
J.R. Giddens: Watching "Captain Planet". No, but really.
We'll miss 'em.
