The Westchester Knicks will have Ron Baker, Quincy Douby and a dog mascot for home opener

Also Marshall Plumlee!

NBA: Preseason-Washington Wizards at New York Knicks Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Westchester Knicks will open the home portion of their schedule Saturday at the Westchester Civic Center against the Greensboro Swarm. And they won’t be alone ...

Yessir, Ron Baker will make his regular-season D-League debut. He played for Westchester in a preseason game, as I’m sure we all remember. He will be joined by Marshall Plumlee, who has played in both games for the 1-1 W-Knicks.

That’s all well and good, you say, but what about some veteran presence? Fear not, my friends, for GM Allan Houston went out and got and grabbed 32-year-old former NBA’er (and Rutgers legend) Quincy Douby!

That is one formidable lineup! There’s only one thing missing ... a dog mascot!

His name is Hudson, the “fleet-footed, hard-slammin’” younger cousin of the New York Liberty’s dog mascot, Maddie [shreds air guitar].

I’ve seen Allan Houston do some wonderful things on the basketball court, but I gotta tell you, this next clip is right up there with his game-winner in Game 5 against the Heat:

Damn that’s fun. The only thing missing is a reaction shot of a shocked, defeated P.J. Brown. Oh, here’s one!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Sad P.J. Brown is the best.

W-Knicks play Saturday at 5 p.m.
