Practice notes: Kurt Rambis doesn't want Kristaps Porzingis to play for Latvia this summer

Rambo plays the heavy.

The New York Knicks practiced Friday afternoon at Georgetown University. The view was certainly inspiring.

I'd be scared as hell to shoot a basketball under the glare of Patrick Ewing.

The big basketball-related news of the day was Kurt Rambis making public his preference that Kristaps Porzingis not play internationally for Latvia in this summer's Olympic qualifying tournament:

Yo, what if Phil Jackson promoted Rambis simply to force him to be the callous bastard who had to tell Kristaps he shouldn't play for his country? #StayWoke

Finally, congratulations to Robin Lopez on the newest addition to his family:

Hopefully Muppet will form an alliance with Robin's cat Prince Edward Zephyr to defeat Brook's cat. Come get some, Poupin!
