Hurricane Sandy forces Knicks to cancel Monday practice

With the New York Knicks opening night scheduled for Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center, the team would like to practice as much as possible.

Unfortunately for the Knicks, Hurricane Sandy is getting in the way, according to the New York Post. New York had to cancel its scheduled Monday practice due to the impending storm that threatens the safety of anyone on the East Coast.

The practice was scheduled for 11 a.m. in Tarrytown, N.Y., but it would have been a dangerous commute for many of the players who don't live in the immediate area.

"I don’t take nothing for granted,’’ Carmelo Anthony said. "I’m scared of Sandy. Just hearing of New York having a hurricane, it doesn’t sound right. I’m not one to play with Mother Nature. I’m staying in. I’m not coming out.’’

Currently, Tuesday's practice is still on to be commissioned as scheduled.
