Camby is returning to New York where he played from 1998 – 2002. I remember growing up seeing Camby playing for the Knicks vey fond memories  I’m glad he is a presence in the Knicks locker room again because he will provide a lot of help for the new comers and for the veterans in the locker room. ”It’s exciting when you get the chance to bring a former Knick like Marcus Camby back home,” GM Glen Grunwald said in a statement released by the Knicks. “His defensive presence, shot-blocking ability and offensive board work will give us nice depth in our frontcourt. In addition, our fan base is very fond of him for what he accomplished here during his four seasons. I also have a great appreciation of Marcus after the time we spent together in Toronto.”  I hope Marcus will have a injury free and healthy season here in New York I can’t wait for Knicks games to be on television again. New York Knicks fans continue to bleed orange and blue until next time. Courtesy of NewYorkCityKnicks.com   Related articles Enhanced by Zemanta
