7 hours, 19 minutes until the NBA season tips off. At 12 p.m. EST the Knicks will take on the Celtics at the Garden in a star-laden showdown between perhaps the best team in the Eastern Conference the last few years, Boston, and a rising power in the league, New York.
Amar'e, Melo, Tyson Chandler and the boys will look to get the season started right with a big win. Join us here for a live chat throughout the game and register in the top right-hand corner to join the conversation. Go New York, Go New York, Go!
