The New York Knicks may be an invincible preseason juggernaut, but they are still missing a valuable piece in shooting guard Arron Afflalo. Derek Fisher spoke to the press after Sunday's practice, and expressed a bit of cautious optimism that the team could finally be whole by next weekend:

Afflalo missed each of the first two preseason games, but his spot in the starting lineup has never really been in doubt. Seraphin played well in the preseason opener before missing Friday night's win over the Wizards, but he needs to get back into action, if only to keep Kyle O'Quinn and Kristaps Porzingis from eating into his playing time.

Imagine that...a decent Knicks big man could possibly be held back by other Knicks who are simply playing better. Has the world gone topsy-turvy?

For those in the "ZOMG why isn't Phil Jackson watching their practices???" crowd, the Zen Master was indeed involved on Sunday:

Of course Phil chatted up The Machine -- the dude is just too damn fascinating:

There's a thin line between love and hate...as thin as Vujacic's stubble. Machine forever! Knicks forever!
