The president of the New York Knicks held a training seminar Tuesday, and many Knicks employees showed up. Vets showed up; youngsters showed up. Stars showed up; dudes at the end of the roster showed up.
That's right, bitches -- attendance is happening!
According to Stefan Bondy of the Daily News, Carmelo Anthony and Robin Lopez joined Kristaps Porzingis and several other Knicks at the Phil Jackson's now-infamous "triangle seminar." (Confession: I took way too much delight in the "Zen at Work" headline.) They aren't mentioned in the piece, but I would imagine Tony Wroten, Jerian Grant, Langston Galloway and Cleanthony Early were also in attendance.
What does a triangle seminar involve, you ask? Per Marc Berman, there was a film session, meeting and "a little on-court demonstration." You can bet your ass Phil Jackson spent a lot of time talking about footwork. Big dudes always love talking about footwork.
It's stories like this that warm the heart, even amid the typical Knicksian chaos encompassing the organization at present. This club has a core of veteran leaders surrounded by some young talented, kids ready to put in the work. There are some good dudes on this team.
