Knicks Dish: Back To School Edition

By Nick Ranieri, Knicks Fan Since '80

With training camp just over a month away, KnicksNow begins it's Camp Countdown series, addressing the biggest storylines that have developed over a busier-than-expected Knicks offseason. On Thursday, Charlie Widdoes kicked things off with the question, "What to expect from the Knicks defense this year?"

Last season certainly featured some epic team and individual performances and NBA.com is remembering them with its “Top Showdowns” series. In this high-intensity matchup against the Thunder in Oklahoma City, Carmelo Anthony goes blow-for-blow with Russell Westbrook.

The passing of Dean Meminger was a sad day for the entire Knicks family. Meminger last stepped on the Madison Square Garden court for “Legends Night” on April 5th, 2013, and moments like the 1973 championship reunion will live on in all of our memories forever.

The Smith brothers were busy helping out some children at the Summer Heat Basketball Camp on Monday. J.R. shared this picture of himself and Chris from camp on his Instagram:

School is back in session and J.R. Smith’s daughter was looking adorable on her first day back. It isn’t hard to figure out where she gets her sneaker advice from!
