It's not every early October that helpful public relations people encourage me to alert readers about preseason openers.
But this is no ordinary early October, given the much-discussed events of July. So, here goes:
MSG will televise the Knicks' preseason opener against AJ Milano at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, featuring the debut of Amar'e Stoudemire.
Two days later, NBA TV will televise the Heat's preseason opener against the Pistons.
I read something recently about Miami adding some good players in the offseason.
