If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow, there’s a special event in Union Square, NBA Tip-Off ’08.
They are dropping a regulation court in for the festivities, and there’s a long list of guests who plan to stop by and meet the fans. It’s the kind of stuff the league has to do more of as competition for our dwindling spending money increases.
You can say hello to the likes of David Stern, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Spike Lee, Walt â€œClydeâ€ Frazier, Scottie Pippen, David Lee, Nate Robinson, Malik Rose, Danilo Gallinari, John Starks, Charles Smith and Kenny Walker.
Maybe you can bum a ticket off Spike.
There will be all kinds of activity from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. I don’t have a schedule, but you won’t see the current Knicks players until the afternoon. They have to practice. It’s a good opportunity to pick up some autographs from a fairly impressive list of dignitaries. And there will be other giveaways.
Heading back from Pittsburgh today, and will check in on the Knicks tomorrow. Don’t forget the season opens Wednesday. I haven’t checked on tickets, but every preseason game I watched advertised seats for the opener against Miami.
