A recap of sorts, with thoughts on the Knicks' two first preseason losses (as well as insight on the potential positive takeaways) will pop up later this morning on KnicksJournal.com.
In the meantime, it's easy to assert that the team's first few games this month have been filled with ups and downs. Fans are still anxiously waiting for some of their favorites to hit the hardwood, though all the while they've watched certain players struggle early, and others thrive as they rise to the challenge at hand.
In addition to aiming to make a good impression, many Knickerbockers on the training camp roster are fighting tooth and nail for that coveted roster spot or two.
Should any combination of players like Rasheed Wallace, Chris Copeland, Henry Sims, Mychel Thompson, Oscar Bellfield, and/or John Shurma make the team, they'll join a talented, animated, and enthusiastic group that is quickly becoming affectionately known to make up a "Knickstape."
One of the most passionate players on the squad, Iman Shumpert recently explained to MSG Network what the "Knickstape" truly is, and what being a part of it really means.
Take a look above for his take on the subject.
