There is nothing quite like the pageantry that is Westchester Knicks basketball. For all you rabid W-Knickheads, the team has just unveiled their 2016-17 schedule:
Here’s the schedule in full, courtesy of the Knicks PR department:
The regular season kicks off November 12 in Delaware. The first home game is November 19. There will be four new teams in the D-League next season: Greensboro Swarm, Windy City Bulls, Northern Arizona Suns and Long Island Nets.
Head coach Mike Miller led the 2015-16 W-Knicks to the postseason in just the second year of its existence. What will he do for an encore?
They will have to find some new stars next season, as Jimmer Fredette (Shanghai Sharks), Travis Trice (Cairns Taipans, which is apparently in Australia) and Thanasis Antetokounmpo (MoraBanc Andorra, which I’m going to assume is the top basketball club in Andorra) have taken their talents abroad.
Fortunately, the Knicks have signed a few youngsters — guaranteed and non-guaranteed alike — who could find their way to Westchester. Might we see Marshall Plumlee, Ron Baker or Chasson Randle? Or perhaps even Willy Hernangomez?
