The Real Drawing Card For The ’08-’09 New York Knicks

Posted in Basketball at 3:57 pm by

While Frank Isola reports the Knicks are considering paying Stephon Marbury to teepee Isiah’s house stay home until a trading partner can be found, the club unveiled one of the more curious, if not frugal marketing schemes of late.

For the mere price of $20.08, the Knicks are offering the following :

(1) ticket to see the Knicks take on Emeka Okafor and the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday, November 5th at 7:30PM

- (1) Food Voucher valid for (1) hot dog, (1) 24-oz soda and (1) bag of chips

- (1) Limited Edition Donnie Walsh – Mike D’Antoni ’08 T-Shirt

Uh huh.  Because with a cast including Wilson Chandler, David Lee and Jamal Crawford, what name just screams “Basketball on Broadway’ quite like that of 67 year year old Donnie Walsh?  Sincere congratulations to whoever thought of this fantastic idea, and perhaps for the November 25 visit of LeBron and the Cavs, the Knicks marketing dept. can unload any remaining J.D. & The Straight Shot tees for the first 19,000 or so persons thru the MSG turnstiles.
