Today’s the day!

The day of what, you ask? The P&T x Knicks Film School viewing party, that’s what! Come through tonight for some drinks at Slattery’s Midtown Pub, 8 E. 36th St. You have to be 21 and up for this one, sorry kiddos. We’re giving 10 percent of all bar sales to the Garden of Dreams Foundation, and they were kind enough to give us a Kevin Knox jersey and some other goodies to raffle off. There will also be a 50/50 raffle to benefit Garden of Dreams.

So yeah, come through! It’s going to be a blast.

In the meantime, here’s some music and some stuff to read before the game tonight:

What’s the news?

— Marc Berman of the NY Post reports that we maaaaay have a date to circle for Kevin Knox’s return to action: this coming Monday, Nov. 5, against the Bulls at home.

— Geoffrey Campbell at Elite Sports NY breaks down Mario Hezonja’s rather underwhelming start to the season.

— The Houston Rockets are in town to play the Nets tonight, and ESPN’s Ian Begley caught up with Carmelo Anthony to wax about his time in New York. Most notably:

“I think just the business. Everything that was going on. The perception of New York Knicks ... not basketball but the organization,” Anthony said Thursday when asked what kept the Knicks from landing a top free agent when he was there.

”I think it probably scared a lot of people away. Scared some people away. Not knowing the nuances and the ins and outs of kind of what was going on, who is in charge, who is not. So it was more than just basketball when it came to people making those decisions,” he said.

Count me as glad that that general feeling seems to be changing around the league.

— Berman writes that Noah Vonleh may be playing himself into more than just a key role on this year’s Knicks — he could be playing his way into being a future piece in New York.

— Jonathan Macri at Knicks Film School writes about the difficult task of assessing Enes Kanter.

— Chris Iseman of the Bergen Record takes a look at what’s gone right and wrong so far this season for the Knicks.

— Uhhh, someone check on Mike D’Antoni.

— Kristian Winfield from the SB Nation mothership writes that the Knicks-Nets rivalry seems to finally be taking shape, with both teams sporting exciting young cores and potentially promising futures.

— Rob Wolkenbrod at Daily Knicks examines Mitchell Robinson’s early success as a starter.

— Jack Huntley at The Knicks Wall praises David Fizdale’s ambition to get more former Knicks (and even some non-Knicks) involved in the development of the current young roster.

That’s all for today! See you guys at Slattery’s later!
