The New York Knicks 2021-22 season is right around the corner.

The offseason is finally wrapping up, and fans will get to see the Knicks take the court sooner rather than later.

New York Knicks: Key Upcoming Dates

Media Day: Monday, September 27th

While other teams have had it printed on their schedules for weeks now, Knicks media day has been hard to pin down, but we know now it is officially on for Monday.

It will be the first time since Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier’s introductory press conference that we will get to see them in Knicks uniforms.

It has been a long time since fans have gotten to see the full team together. Coach Thibodeau and will likely field plenty of questions about the team’s revamped roster and what some of the lineups may look like. We can see what Julius Randle’s braids may look like.

Training Camp: Tuesday, September 28th

Right after Media Day, the team gets to work. Training camp begins.

We’ll get to see our first photos and videos of New York Knicks practice. The team can start preparing for the long road ahead and build chemistry.

Preseason Game 1: Tuesday, October 5th

Knicks basketball is right around the corner. In just less than two weeks, the New York Knicks will be taking the court. It will be the first of four preseason games.

Preseason will see the majority of the main roster get solid minutes as they warm up for the regular season but it is also a chance to see some of the younger players get more burn.

We will likely see rookies Quentin Grimes and Miles McBride get nice chunks of playing time in the preseason playing alongside some of the Knicks veterans.

Regular Season Opening Night: Wednesday, October 20th

The Knicks tip-off the regular season in less than a month.

Game-1 will be at Madison Square Garden, on national TV, against the Boston Celtics.

The Atlantic Division rivals will likely be jostling for playoff positioning all season long, so opening night has some big implications for the entire season. It will also be a big game for Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier, who are making their Knicks debuts against their former team. It can’t come soon enough.
