NY Knicks Open Camp to Kids

Posted: 10/09/2009

The New York Knickerbockers returned to Skidmore College for its 2009 training camp. As part of this year's camp, the Knicks provided an opportunity for children of Skidmore employees to watch the team practice, followed by a question and answer period and autograph session. Skidmore's student athletes and coaches then conducted a basketball clinic. Many children who attended the clinic won Knicks' prizes that included autographed basketballs and tickets to the team's preseason game against the New Jersey Nets played Oct. 4 at the Times Union Center. Second-year coach Mike D'Antoni's team opens its 64th National Basketball Association season Oct. 28 at Miami.
