Turn your volume down for Stephen A. Smith.

Labor Day is over, friends, which means it’s back to work and back to Knicks!

There still isn’t much going on in Knicksworld, but those of us with ESPN were treated Tuesday to an interview with future star Kevin Knox. The youngblood successfully parried nearly five minutes of questioning and screeching from the notorious Stephen A. Smith.

Stephen A. didn’t hold back, asking about his perceived lack of fire during his lone season in college. But Knox is so damn smooth with the media — the kid knows what to say and what not to say.

Turning to the G League, the Westchester Knicks unveiled their regular season schedule last week. The W-Knicks made the postseason last year, so they’ll be looking to get back in 2018-19.

Westchester tips off their regular season on Nov. 2. We should see a whole lot of super exciting big man prospect Mitchell Robinson in Westchester this season, so make sure you stop by the Civic Center and cheer for the home team.

Speaking of bigs who will spend a lot of time in Westchester, Knicks two-way player Isaiah Hicks made the roster for Team USA as they look to qualify for the FIBA World Cup.

W-Knicks head coach Mike Miller will assist head man and longtime friend of the franchise Jeff Van Gundy. Former Knick Chasson Randle will also be on the squad. Go USA!
