Training camp starts on Saturday. The Knicks will have two-a-day practices in the mornings and evenings every day from then until September 29th, at which point the squad will head to Europe. Speaking of Europe, here's Alan Hahn:
Timofey Mozgov is expected to arrive today at the MSG Training Center ready for training camp, which officially opens Saturday. The 7-1 Russian center finished a nine-game stint in Turkey at the FIBAs a little over a week ago and returned to Russia to collect his things and complete his official paperwork before making the trip to the U.S.
Sources tell me Timofey's "things" included a keyboard, a saxophone, and a balalaika. Sources also tell me that Timofey's "trip" was via zeppelin. Meanwhile, a bunch of the more local Knicks have been scrimmagin' and sharin' laffs, with one conspicuous absence. Marc Berman:
Berman's cheekiness isn't totally unfounded. Curry's M.I.A. status has turned into a theme this summer. Hopefully, whatever loose ends Eddy has are getting tied up, because the clock is ticking and the Russians are here.
Basketball needs to start, like...now.
