Believe it or not, some members of the New York Knicks aren’t plying their trade in the Olympics at the moment. We here at P&T have spent most of the past two weeks focusing on Carmelo Anthony, Willy Hernangomez and Mindaugas Kuzminskas, so this Sunday evening is good time to check in on our other Knickerbocker friends.
Let’s begin with Kristaps Porzingis, shall we? He may not be playing in Rio, but he’s doin’ work on the court of his new Manhattan apartment complex:

He retweeted his top 10 plays of the season, just to show the rest of the league what’s up:

Sasha Vujacic was clearly inspired by all the Olympic pool sports, as he demonstrated with this workout video:
You can tell this guy got his start as a Laker: who else would have such great production quality on his Instagram posts?
Brandon Jennings played the part of a good union member, reminding the world that his brothers remain underpaid:

He also paid respect to his fans with some retweets:

I’ve finally found a reason to have a baby!
Courtney Lee and Derrick Rose got in some side-by-side training in Los Angeles:
Judging by his expression in this photo, Lee may just have replaced the retired Tim Duncan is the most sedate athlete in the NBA.
OK, I’ll throw up the peace sign, but I’m not smiling.
You do you, Mr. Lee. I support your lack of emotion.
