The New York Knicks held a practice on Monday afternoon, and wouldn't you know it, an old friend stopped by to give some encouragement.

Early was shot less than one week ago, and he's already up and about. That kid is one tough S.O.B.

In other news, here's a clip of Lance Thomas teaching a couple of scrubs how to hit a jump shot.

One of those scrubs has some big plans for Tuesday's rematch with Atlanta:
Melo was told he's about 170 points from passing Larry Bird on the all time scoring list. "I’m going to get that tomorrow," he says jokingly— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) January 4, 2016
Slow down, Melo. I'd settle for 80 points tomorrow and 90 points Friday night against the Spurs. That would certainly improve the atmosphere at the P&T meet-up.
The club is now officially on their road trip. Go Knicks! Go Cle!
