The Knicks scrimmaged Saturday morning in their final day of training camp at West Point and I know you're not even reading this because of the headline and photo below...


Final day of camp

Praise Latvian Jesus! Both Porzingis and the Knicks repeatedly said that the rookie was being held out as a cautionary measure, but who the hell was supposed to believe that? I'm still not sure I trust that photo. Has it been doctored. Is Kristaps in proper proportion to Lou Amundson? Is Amundson's top knot in proper proportion to the rest of his head?

In a double-dipping of good health news, Carmelo Anthony and his surgically-repairred knee made it through camp without a scratch:

These are still the Knicks, though, so it's not like everyone could be  healthy:

Derek Fisher hasn't picked a starting lineup yet, but Porzingis is at least under consideration:

Let's face facts: we already know one of those starting spots is going to Sasha Vujacic, the Knicks' fine, aged Slovenian wine.

The Machine stayed after practice to shoot along with Thanasis Antetokounmpo, allowing Thanasty to absorb a bit of his shooting aura because he is benevolent and wise:

As to that first video, here indeed is Jerian Grant back-tapping with panache:

Guards crashing the glass like centers! Vujacic spitting in the face of Father Time! Kristaps! This is going to be the best season in history.
