Preseason Schedule Announced

Here's the scoop from Mike Dougherty:

Oct. 8 Knicks at Sixers Colonial Center, Columbia, S.C. 7 p.m.
Oct. 11 Maccabi Tel Aviv at Knicks MSG 7 p.m.
Oct. 17 Knicks at Celtics TD Banknorth Garden 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 18 Knicks at Nets Continental Airlines Arena, 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 22 Celtics at Knicks MSG 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 24 Sixers @ Knicks MSG 7:30 p.m.
Oct. 26 Nets @ Knicks MSG 7:30 p.m.

So that's seven games: six against the Atlantic Division and one against the Red Sea Division. There are two meet-ups with KG (although he probably won't play much), and 4 games at the Garden. Dougherty finishes his post with this tidbit:

The preseason is normally such a yawn that most of us write our stories before the games tip off and plug in a final score.

Really? I happen to love the preseason. It's the stage that gave us Lavor Postell, John Thomas, and many others at their finest. 47 days 'til October!
