Knicks to hold training camp at West Point

Sep 4, 2014, 10:15 AM EST

The Knicks are doing something very cool.

They typically hold training camp at their training center in Greenburgh, N.Y. But this year, they’re headed to a more hallowed location.

Presumably, the team will interact with the cadets – an experience that both sides could appreciate. That Army way of life could make the players more regimented, and cadets should appreciate seeing NBA players up close.

This is a win-win, bringing back a practice – the Knicks training at West Point – that ended before Phil Jackson even began playing for New York. It’s nice to see it return.
