      The more i hear about shump and his personality, the more i believe the whole shump/dolan feud. Hopefully that doesnt mean he’s on his way out. But then again, as much as i love his personality, he hasnt done anything in this league; he has much to prove this year. I am confident he will.

      Woodson said Martin’s ankle “nagged him throughout the summer” after injuring it in April and the Knicks are “just being cautious.

      Well, I think we know where that one is heading.

      And while Coach Mike Woodson said Hardaway had already played himself into the team’s regular-season rotation — a startling concession, as it was the second week of training camp — the lessons are sure to continue.

      “He’s got to be able to defend, and I’m not seeing a whole lot of that yet in him,” Woodson said.

      I feel like I’m missing something.

      Man, that was a total buzzkill of comments. :)

      Brian Cronin: Great article, but come on, Shump is not as cool as Oakley. He has the potential to be as cool (or even cooler) than Oakley, but he’s not there yet.

      Agreed, some of Oak’s greatest hits were “I do the rebound, I do the enforce” and when referring to opposing players coming into the paint – “when they do, they know they been to the zoo”

      The suits, the carwash, the slapping Charles Barkley-young Shump still has some work to do.

      Very strange. Maybe he just means the rotation at the start of the year when JR is out. That might make some sense. But I can’t figure out how JR, Shump and THJ can all really be in the rotation at the same time unless both Amare and Bargnani are extremely marginalized.
