Things are getting quite testy in Knickelodeon camp. According to ESPN New York, Knicks veterans METTA WORLD PEACE and KENYON MARTIN got into a heated verbal exchange during practice prior to Sunday’s 103-99 loss to the Pelicans.
During the game, Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert also exchanged words during a timeout when Shumpert was seen arguing with Melo in regards to a defensive assignment…
Both Shumpert and Anthony downplayed the significance of the incident as did World Peace and Martin in their altercation earlier but you have to ask yourself did any of this stuff happen when the Knicks were winning last year? When they were all smiles? (That would be pre-pumpkin patch uniforms…)
Losing nine straight (seven straight at home) in getting off to a disappointing 3-13 start will have a tendency to turn smiles upside down and put players on edge. You think?
I sense implosion coming on if the Knicks don’t right their ship soon.
