Needless to say, the Knicks are coming off a rather underwhelming campaign last season. Having said that, the return of Phil Jackson to the Big Apple and the subsequent changes he's made to the team's roster this summer has created a bit more buzz surrounding the squad once again . It'll be interesting to see how many marquee games (and/or nationally televised ones) New York is featured in.
In any event, the New York Daily News is reporting a couple of early spoilers. The Knicks will reportedly open up the season by playing the Chicago Bulls and will later on in the campaign venture out to London to play the Milwaukee Bucks. As usual, New York will also play on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting the Knicks will play the Wizards on Christmas Day (Twitter, August 13).
Yahoo Sports! also reports that the Knicks will play LeBron James and the Cavaliers on October 30th.
