KNICKS PASTA BATTLE and other Tuesday post-practice notes

Elbows vs. shells is the cause of all Knick turmoil.


G'afternoon! The Knicks just got done with practice, and they gave some grade-A losing team quotes during media availability. Here we go:


Okay, some things:

1. It's funny that people even bother asking Metta World Peace questions looking for straight answers at this point.

2. I believe Metta.

3. While we're at it, elbows vs. shells is a toss-up for me. My main thing is I like my pasta short and uniform. Short because I'm too uncoordinated to properly twirl long pasta and uniform because fancy shit like bowties cooks unevenly. Maybe if we and the Knicks all just say our pasta preferences, all this acrimony and losing will go away?

4. Also this.

Moving on.

UPDATE: The full quote reveals Metta actually prefers shells. Terrible reporting, guys. SMH SMH SMH SMH


Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith had rest days at practice today. That put Pablo Prigioni in with the first unit:



Mike Woodson coached practice today, by the way. The Knicks acknowledged the swirlin' rumors:

Woodson himself had this to say about Shump's fourth-quarter benching on Sunday:

That's pretty much it from practice. Even though the Knicks are home now, I've seen no updates about Tyson Chandler's timetable or any progress of any kind.

I leave you with this very Knicks-y bit of intel from Ian Begley:

According to league sources with knowledge of the team's talks with potential trade partners, president/GM Steve Mills' management team has also cited Mike Woodson's coaching as one reason for Shumpert's poor play.

"They're saying that Shumpert's a better player [than he's shown] but Woodson isn't using him right," one league source said.

Whoever said that could be misrepresenting things or speaking out of agenda, but man, does that sound exceptionally stupid.
