WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- County Executive Rob Astorino helped the Westchester Knicks and general manager Allan Houston kick off the team’s 2016-17 season by welcoming Hudson, the team’s new mascot, to the team on Friday.
Astorino and Houston also drew attention to the new additions that were made to the team’s home court at County Center, including a new and larger court floor, an LED ribbon that wraps around the entire arena, high-definition video boards for the lobby and the arena and new courtside seats.
“We are very excited for another Westchester Knicks season here at the County Center,” said Astorino. “Our County Center looks like a brand new arena. In fact, it looks just like a mini-Madison Square Garden.”
The Knicks are also hosting various theme nights and promotions throughout the season.
Fans will have the opportunity to win prizes and participate in events such as “Youth Sports Night,” “Senior Night” and “Super Hero Night.”
Hudson made his Westchester debut at the Knicks’ first home game on Saturday, wearing his team jersey, number 914.
