The best time of the year is around the corner. For the first time in a long time, New York Knicks fans are hopeful about what’s to come in the new season.
It’s been a quiet offseason for New York, with the biggest moves being the Obi Toppin trade and Donte DiVincenzo free agency signing. The Knicks’ current roster is similar to the one that made it to the second round of the playoffs, so until the right star becomes available, the team’s plan appears to be to run it back.
New York’s 2023-24 journey will start in less than two weeks with Media Day and training camp.
When is the New York Knicks’ Media Day?
The Knicks’ Media Day will be held on Monday, Oct. 2, with training camp set to open on Tuesday, Oct. 3.
Last year, the organization instead referred to Media Day as “Content Day.” New York is notorious for not making players and coaches (and even Leon Rose) available to the media.
Content Day was marketed as a chance for fans to watch live as MSG’s Monica McNutt interviewed players. Media members got a chance to speak to players later on.
Which players will be participating in their first New York Knicks Media Day?
It didn’t take long for Josh Hart to become beloved within the Knicks fanbase, so while he’s already a regular face, 2023-24 will mark his first full season in New York. He’ll share the honor with his former Villanova teammate, Donte DiVincenzo.
If Media Day goes anything like the Knicks’ postgame press conferences did after Hart’s arrival, there will be plenty of entertainment to go around. Jalen Brunson, Hart, DiVincenzo, and even Ryan Arcidiacono, who signed an Exhibit 9 deal, are all together for the first time since college.
The wait is almost over, Knicks fans. The new season is almost here.
