Knicks Rookie Tim Hardaway Junior was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, the league announced Thursday. Hardaway fell all the way to #24 in the draft, where he was selected by the Knicks, and was very impressive in his rookie campaign. Hardaway joins Victor Oladipo, Michael Carter-Williams, Mason Plumlee, and his Michigan teammate Trey Burke on the First Team.
Knicks Rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. is headed to All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. The guard out of Michigan was selected by the NBA to play in the Rising Stars Challenge, a game featuring the league’s top rookies and sophomores. Timmy is certainly deserving of this honor, and hopefully we’ll see a few of his high-flying dunks on display during the game. Tickets for All-Star Weekend Events can be purchased here.
Update: It happened again during the next game, but according to Hardaway, it was Shump yelling. Apparently, every time Shump sets somebody up for a dunk, he’s going to scream out “Party Time”, which is gonna be pretty awesome.
UPDATE 2: I’m calling shenanigans here. In today’s scrimmage, Hardaway dunked and appears to have yelled “party time” on the way up. Was he lying to us on twitter? I think Tim is the secret yeller. The mystery continues!!!
Knicks 1st-round draft pick Tim Hardaway Jr suffered a bruised wrist during today’s summer league game and will not return. He will get x-rays on his wrist. Hardaway Jr. had been playing very well so let’s hope this is not an issue.
