Would you like to watch the New York Knicks play basketball? I sure would.
Well we're in luck -- or we will be in luck -- for the Knicks have unleashed their preseason schedule upon the world:

Six games...none of which will count! They kick off the preseason slate at MSG on Oct. 7 with a game against Bauru, a Brazilian club that won the 2015 FIBA Americas League, and finish up Oct. 22 in Boston. Two games against the Celtics means listening to twice as much praise for Brad Stevens, greatest coach in basketball history. Gross.
Sadly, there will be no travel to fancy, exotic locales like Montreal, Syracuse or Baltimore. All three road games will be at NBA arenas (Charlotte, Washington, Boston). That's boring! Last year we got a Knicks-Celtics matchup at Mohegan Sun; are you telling me they can't play the Hornets in Atlantic City? Michael Jordan would totally be down for that!
We have six weeks until Knicks, people!
