New York Knicks rookie forward Chris Copeland had to wear pink girl pajamas as the team returned home from their West Coast trip as part of the team's harmless rookie hazing.
As Copeland is 6-foot-8, we're surprised they found girl pajamas big enough to fit him.

While rookie hazing isn't incredibly terrible for NBA players compared to other sports, NBA rookies still have to go through some public humiliation.Check out New York Knicks rookie Chris Copeland who had to wear some pink pajamas during the team's return to NYC from their West Coast trip:(Courtesy of Teamswish Instagram)

Although we are only 30 games into the 2012-2013 campaign, Knicks fans can already say that this is the best season we’ve witnessed in over 10 years. Shocking upsets, crazy comebacks and dominant play at home have defined this young season and are the main reasons why Knicks fans have smiles on their faces. This exciting season has also been defined by the...

Amare Stoudemire is back, but the Knicks probably aren’t too thrilled about that fact.
Despite getting one of the league’s top offensive players back from injury, New York was doing just fine without Stoudemire. Led by Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith in the forward’s absence, the Knicks got off to a hot start and had Madison Square Garden buzzing on a nightly...
Contending teams have been known to play poorly every now and again. As steady as a squad can be, no one can be perfect.That's why it wasn't worth getting up in arms about the Knicks' feeble effort in the first half of Friday night's game against the Kings. New York made sure such a fluke didn't last the entire game, as the Knickerbockers charged back with all...
After missing the entire season so far, Amare Stoudemire is expected to make his season debut tonight for the New York Knicks. Stoudemire has been out because of knee surgery he underwent in the preseason. The Knicks are beat up, so getting Stoudemire back could be a nice lift for them.Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports says sources have told him Stoudemire will make his debut...
One of the main reasons the New York Knicks have been successful this season is their vast improvement on defense. They have allowed 97.5 points per game, which ranks near the middle of the pack in the NBA. Much of their improvement has come with Amar’e Stoudemire out nursing a knee injury. The Knicks have cooled off a bit as of late, but many wonder if Stoudemire’s return will...
New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, according to Yahoo! Sports. Stoudemire, who had surgery on his left knee in October and has been practicing with the D-League's Erie BayHawks, is ready to go after recently rejoining the Knicks. There is a good chance that Stoudemire will come off...
The Portland Trail Blazers overcame Carmelo Anthony's season high-tying 45 points and spoiled Amare Stoudemire's season debut, beating the New York Knicks 105-100 on Tuesday night.
Nicolas Batum scored 26 points, Damian Lillard had 21 points, six assists and five rebounds, and LaMarcus Aldridge had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Portland.
Stoudemire finished with six points...

The post Woodson and Amare at Practice: 1/2 appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.
Good news Knicks fans. Amar'e Stoudemire will make his season debut tonight agaisnt the Portland Trailblazers.
It will be an exciting night to see Stoudemire back on the court for the Knicks and he will become a factor this season.
I am assuming he will come off the bench tonight unless Carmelo Anthony can't give it a go tonight coming off his knee injury.
As I pointed out in today’s Starting Lineup post, Amare Stoudemire’s return to the floor could’ve gone better. That said, it could’ve gone worse, too. While it would’ve been completely unreasonable to expect a player to sit out 30 consecutive games and come back to dominate, it wouldn’t have been unreasonable to presume STAT would need more than a game or two to regain...
Via RealGM.com via New York Daily News:
The Atlanta Hawks ran Mike Woodson out-of-town after they were swept by the Orlando Magic in the 2010 Playoffs, but Woodson has been in New York since taking over for Mike D’Antoni late last season. You can certainly count Stoudemire amongst Woodson’s supporters, as he is reportedly the first coach to teach Stoudemire defense.
The New York Knicks have sputtered recently, losing three of their last four with defense largely to blame.
Though Amare Stoudemire's return is grabbing attention, New York may have to look elsewhere to shore up that end of the court on Thursday night as it hosts the red-hot San Antonio Spurs, one of the league's best offensive teams.
The Knicks (21-10) still own an impressive...
