New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-08-19
--The Knicks will find themselves back on the national stage this season with five games on the ESPN schedule, though two of them are more for the opponents (LeBron James and Kobe Bryant) and the venue (Madison Square Garden). Last season the superstars put on incredible performances -- Kobe scored a Garden-record 61 points, LeBron had 52 -- within days of each other at the Garden. The Knicks are included for the first time in eight years on the NBA's coveted Christmas Day schedule. They will face the Miami Heat at the Garden in a noon matinee on ESPN to kick off the slate of five games.

Cablevision Systems Corp., which owns Madison Square Garden (with assets that include the Knicks, the NHL's Rangers, the WNBA's Liberty and Radio City Music Hall, among other entities), said on July 29 that it will proceed with a plan to spin off the Garden unit as a separate company. The Garden and its teams are not for sale, according to Cablevision chief executive James Dolan, who also serves as the Garden chairman. Instead, the Garden unit will be its own company and no longer under will be the Cablevision umbrella.

The move still has to be approved by the IRS and a final vote by the Cablevision board. Dolan is set to begin a $500 million renovation of the aging Garden, which is in its fifth decade. According to Forbes, the Knicks alone are worth more than $613 million, which makes them the NBA's most valuable franchise.
