Thinking that would make you normal. RT @NyCJO88: @Chris Herring Am I nuts to think NYKs defense has the potential to be pretty awful this yr?

Steve Popper

J.R. Smith at West Point is odd, but still more surprised that Filip Bondy and Berman made it through the security checkpoint.

As @howardmegdal points out, this whole JR Smith at West Point thing should be a reality show. Missed opportunity.

Ian Begley

I'm sure J.R. Smith can be frustrating at times for #Knicks fans. But, as a reporter, I love the guy. His candor is always appreciated.

Jonah Ballow

“Meaningful is probably an understatement. It’s an honor to be w/ this organization” @Derek Fisher on his 1st #KnicksCamp as HC

Ian Begley

More JR Smith West Point: "If I wake up at 5 am, go to sleep at 6, I don’t think that works w/my schedule. That is a different lifestyle."

Jonah Ballow

#KnicksTape is starting to emerge again but it’s a whisper though…” — @Iman Shumpert #KnicksCamp

Ian Begley

J.R. Smith on West Point and the Cadets: "I want to see how the hell they are doing it. Because I don’t know if I can do it." #Knicks

Ian Begley

J.R. Smith says #Knicks will try to "push everything to the sideline" on defense now. "Last year, it was more forcing people to the middle."

Ian Begley

There was some media-generated talk today about the confusion on defense last season. Carmelo said this year's scheme "makes sense already."

Jonah Ballow

“If I could grow a beard I would but I guess I’m not manly enough” @Iman Shumpert talking about @Quincy Acy’s beard. #KnicksCamp

Ian Begley

Carmelo called Jeter a "mentor." Said they've discussed "the ins & outs" of NYC. "You can't get a better guy to give you advice on that."

Jonah Ballow

No Triangle Offense drills today at #KnicksCamp. The morning session was all about defense.

Jonah Ballow

“Our focus today was totally, 100% on the defensive side today” — @Carmelo Anthony #KnicksCamp

Ian Begley

#Knicks first practice this morning was entirely dedicated to defense. Team finished 24th in points allowed per 100 possessions last year.

Ian Begley

Amar'e: " “Right now, I feel great. There’s no limitations as far as games played at this point.... Lord willing, I'll play 82 games."

Jonah Ballow

1-on-1 w/ @Jose Manuel Calderon, talking triangle, international experience, & family life. #KnicksCamp WATCH: youtube.com/watch?v=WO6kaG…

Chris Herring

Shumpert: "If that's what y'all wanna call me, y'all got it. But I'm not gonna co-sign that. ... I'm a win-and-D guy. I'm an O-and-D guy."

Chris Herring

Asked Shumpert whether it would bug him/feel limiting to be called a 3-and-D guard. "Im not 3-and-D. I dunno what that is, but Im not one."

Steve Popper

It's like old times - Fisher: "Today we spent two and a half hours on defense. We didn’t do one triangle specific drill of any kind today."

Steve Popper

Carmelo said he went to Jeter's final game at Yankee Stadium - and has talked often. Admitted it's a cliche, but said he tips his cap to him

Steve Popper

Fisher and Amar'e say all precautionary - resting for the long run. Said he participated in two hours of work before media came in.

Ian Begley

Carmelo Anthony says he's leaned on Derek Jeter several times for advice about navigating New York as a high profile athlete. #Knicks

Ian Begley

Carmelo Anthony was at Derek Jeter's last game at Yankee Stadium. Said he got chills when Jeter had game-winning hit. #Knicks

Al Iannazzone

Melo said he was at derek jeter's last home game and he got chills the way it ended.

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks only practiced defense today, no triangle yet.

Chris Herring

JR said he saw the security guard w an AK-47 here at West Point. Jokingly said he tried to make nice w him. "Ay dawg, I come here in peace!"

Chris Herring

Asked JR abt the way he's perceived vs the lifestyle here at West Point. Said he was just happy to make it thru security.

Ian Begley

JR Smith jokes that he made it through security at West Point with no issue. Jokes that he told security guard "I come in peace." #Knicks

Ian Begley

JR Smith says he's not bothered by Phil comparing him to Dennis Rodman. Said he likes being compared to a Hall of Famer. #Knicks

Ian Begley

Fisher says there are no medical issues wģAmare. He says Amare participated in most of practice & #Knicks will monitor minutes during camp.

Al Iannazzone

Fisher said Amar'e went through the first two hours of practice and then they pulled him. Said he will practice tonight and tomorrow

We've only been in gym for the last 15 mins or so, but Amare -- possibly resting -- hasnt participated in the portion we've been present for

Scott Cacciola

Based on the 2 minutes of practice I've watched, Andrea Bargnani will shoot 100% from the field this season.

Ian Begley

#Knicks have a few teams of 5 on the floor w/players rotating in & out. FWIW, Amar'e has been on the sideline for the few minutes we've seen

Steve Popper

I will say the Knicks triangle defense is clearly ahead of the triangle offense.

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks already gave up Raymond Felton's No. 2. Langston Galloway is the recipient

Scott Cacciola
