IFWT_knicks D 1

Ok, Knicks’ D-League team fans — it’s up to you!  Their new D-League team (who will play in my hood – Westchester next season) filed for trademarks on five potential team names.  You will be able to vote on the name in the next couple of weeks.  Check it out & let us know what you think — I like the 4th option…




Via DeadSpin:

The Wall Street Journal dug up the five trademark filings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. They are:

  • The New York 914s (after the area code for Westchester County).
  • The New York ‘Bockers (self-explanatory).
  • The New York Plainsmen (after White Plains, home to the Westchester County Center where the team will play).
  • The New York Empire (self-explanatory)
  • The New York Hutch (after a nickname for major north-south artery the Hutchinson River Parkway, which is itself named after Anne Hutchinson, a British-born religious figure who settled in the area. Like “Knicks,” it’s a throwback to the area’s colonial history.)
