Iman Shumpert believes that the #Knicks this season will "be able to clean up a lot of the stuff that we went through last year."

Jonah Ballow

Was just at @Iman Shumpert's bball camp. I'll post some of his comments to NYKnicks.com. Stay tuned.

Ian Begley

Trade rumors and people comstantly telling him what he "needed to be doing" has led Iman Shumpert to "step away" from social media.

Scott Cacciola

As a sneaker aesthete, I can say with confidence that the Federer Jordans are amazing.

Jason Smith

Ian Begley

Shumpert expects more opportunities to cut & slash to the basket in the triangle offense & he's worked to strengthen his left leg for that.

Ian Begley

At his basketball camp, Iman Shumpert says he's been working on "getting that trust back" in his left leg to cut & jump more effectively.

The #Knicks' D-League team, the Westchester Knicks, will hold open tryouts on Sept. 20 at the House of Sports in Ardsley (11 AM - 5 PM).

Frank Isola

The Knicks having open D-League tryouts next month. It's a paid gig, plus Berman of the Post will write that you are a future NBA All Star.

Frank Isola

Manchester United is losing 4-0 to MK Dons, which I believe is a high school team from Harlem.

Scott Cacciola

Correction: D-League Knicks tryouts are *next* month. Which only gives me more time to prepare.

Scott Cacciola

Westchester Knicks holding open tryouts later this month. Considering whether to give it a shot.

Brian Mahoney

Slovenia coach saying Suns pushed for Dragic not to play this summer, then play fewer games on a minutes restriction.

Frank Isola

You know what isn't a bad bet? Anthony Davis at 25/1. FYI: future Knick Marc Gasol is 200/1 & Kobe is 55/1.

Frank Isola

Sportsbettingdime.com has Carmelo at 20/1 to win MVP. A few others: LeBron 2/1, Durant 4/1, D Rose 12/1, Blake Griffin 15/1 & C. Paul 15/1.

Brian Mahoney

Stephen Curry was somehow the first player to foul out today. Slovenians balanced their fouls out better among the roster.

Brian Mahoney

Said politely: When Gay and DeRozan are out there together, the other 3 guys just don't seem very aggressive looking for their own shot.

Chris Herring

Point guard Touré Murry officially signed a two-year deal with the Utah Jazz today, according to league sources.

Brian Mahoney

Faried to Davis alley-oop! Both have been impressive today.

Brian Mahoney

Not a huge believer in plus/minus, but for those who are: Kyrie a team-high +19 at half. Derrick Rose a team-low minus-5.

Brian Mahoney

Halftime entertainment at the US-Slovenia exhibition game. http://t.co/dnBXkuoglE

Brian Mahoney

Slovenia fouling so much that I swear a ref just called a kicked ball and somehow Harden is shooting free throws anyway.

Brian Mahoney

Eight points, 1 foul so far. RT @SwHTown20 @Brian Mahoney Zoran Dragic stat line please?

Brian Mahoney

Besides Goran Dragic, two other Slovenians already with 3 fouls before halftime. Hopefully 12 players will be enough to finish the game.

Brian Mahoney

Goran Dragic heads to the bench with 3 of the 10 fouls the Dragics can use today. Brother Zoran only has one.

Brian Mahoney

I'm not sure Slovenia has gone consecutive possessions without fouling today.

Brian Mahoney

NBA mandates more open space on sides of stanchions, fewer photographers on floor to improve player safety. bigstory.ap.org/article/nba-un…

Brian Mahoney

Powerful dunk by Cousins, followed by a sound effect that I believe was machine gun fire. Not your average NBA game sound effect.

Brian Mahoney

And that's not sharp yet in this exhibition season, not just today.

Brian Mahoney

Dragic slices right through US defense for a layup on first possession. Defense from guards hasn't been sharp yet.

Brian Mahoney

Here at US-Slovenia exhibition, the refs and @tfrank14 are wearing very similar shirts. The refs wouldn't comment on their disappointment.

Brian Mahoney

NBA informed teams of new player safety regulations today. More free space to either side of stanchions, fewer photographers on the floor.

Brian Mahoney

Here in Gran Canaria, one of the finest pregames I've ever seen. Lots of dancers, music. Like being at the circus.

Brian Mahoney

Slovenia has some excellent green and yellow sneaker looks, though Goran Dragic appears to be going with plain ol' white.

Brian Mahoney

A mixture of Jordan and Rose among the many Bulls jerseys. All the Cavs ones so far appear to be Kyrie. No past or present LeBrons.

Brian Mahoney

Always fun to look at the jerseys in the stands during USA overseas games. Kobe, as usual, the leader so far. Good Steph Curry showing.

"They" also claim the Knicks have been trying to trade J.R. I believe "they" be right about that one.

Frank Isola

The one thing "they" can all agree upon is that J.R. had a great season in 2012-13 while last season was a complete "you-know-what show."

Frank Isola

"They" also said that Eagles manager Irving Azoff would never become the most powerful man at MSG. Now look at him. "They" are wrong a lot.

Frank Isola

Hey, "they" said Berman of the Post wouldn't last after he began a story last summer with "It will be oh so grand...and Brand" & yet he had

Just one question for J.R., who are "they"?

Yep. 12-1 pm with @HDumpty39. RT @bitterplanner: @Alan Hahn You're up early. On the radio today?

Brian Mahoney

I believe Jeremy Lin and Rasheed Wallace had similar quotes about injuries when they were Knicks, and never suited up for them again.

Brian Mahoney

Clearing out room on the recorder, came across Kenyon saying he could've gone back in a game if it was close. Not sure he ever played again.
