At the time this entry was posted, the Knicks were 38,000 feet above the ground flying to Milan, Italy. And they also were sky high on their new 7-foot-1 center, Timofey Mozgov, who I wrote about today in a training camp wrapup column for the ESPNNewYork site.

You may or may not recall that Lamar Odom nicknamed Mozgov "Wilt Chamberlain" earlier this month in Turkey as Team USA was preparing to play Russia in the quarterfinals of the World Championship, and it remains to be seen whether that nickname sticks now that "Mozgov on the Hudson" is about to open on West 33rd Street.

What also remains to be seen is how much longer we'll be able to enjoy the humorous Twitter posts being put up by a Mozgov imposter. (Sample: Bear meet and toast = brekfast of champiuns,. Ready for war at praktis b4 we head 2 Italy. Ya gotova!!!!) The Knicks' front office folks are already trying to have the account closed down.
