---The Roster, getting ready for training camp in Charleston, SC, has been shaken up just a little bit over the past hours or so. Mike Sweetney & Tim Thomas will not be joining them as they will be in Chicago (to stay) and Antonio Davis & Eddy Curry will take their place. (see front page )
---The Knicks will also bring along 5'10 160 Guard Steven Barber & 6'8 225 Forward Otis George. Both were members of our summer league teams in Vegas & Minnesota. Both are NBA rookies and seeing our roster situation will be competing with Jackie Butler for the remaining spot.

River Rocks, Port Rich (Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico PUNETA!!!)
Considering the lack of good, young centers in this league and his tremendous upside, Eddy Curry would be the obvious choice. Nate Robinson is also someone who will be able to change a team's worh ethic (a natural motivator and showman).
However, I just have this feeling about David Lee. He dominated at the rookie predraft camp and is a strong sleeper at this point. I'm going out on a limb here and will listen to my gut feeling that screams at me the words "watch out for David Lee".

In 2 of the pictures you can tell Channing Frye added some muscle mass..
---Both have arrived at Training Camp today, good news for the Knicks in many ways!!!
---Knicks have signed SF Matt Barnes (free agent who played in Sacramento & Philadelphia last season). He is expected to compete along with Butler, George & Barber for our remaining roster spot. Training Camp roster is now at 18.

Mo Taylor looks slimmer. Ariza and Frye seem to have added some muscle mass. I really expected Jamal Crawford to bulk up a lil bit over the break. Q looks better in orange &blue. Brown seems to be content w/ how the team looks so far. Im really excited. What is it, 28 more days till the season openner?
I think all of our young guns are gonna step it up this year. I love Nate Lee, and Frye. I hope Q is a nasty as he was on the Clips, and u know Starbury will get his. The sleeper still is Ariza, i love his game, if he could get his shot a little more consistent i think he could be an all star. I was so happy when we got curry and Ariza didnt get traded.
---Count builds up to THREE. THREE is the number of New York Knicks who have recieved strained hamstrings in Training Camp. Originally just "Q" has now added Center Jerome James & Point Guard Stephon Marbury. All potential starters this year. Sprain hamstrings are nagging mostly annoying injuries but nothing that will hurt the team in the future (knock on wood), all should be fine soon
Good signs from Training camp
Somewhere at the one minute mark in the vid, they show Curry posting up Frye - Poor frye is getting thrown around like a rag doll! lol, but what I like is that Frye jumps and contests the shot anyway - making Curry miss.
