Do we have our first glimpse of the New York Knicks’ “City Edition” jersey?
A leaked photo of what is rumored to be the New York Knicks’ “City Edition” jersey is now out. Check it out below.

With Nike now in charge of the uniforms, some teams could have 4-5 different uniforms this season. Including the jersey above, the Knicks will have four total uniforms. Unless they add a new one for Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day, that shouldn’t change.
Obviously the Knicks’ “City Edition” uniform is a style that emulates a fire department badge. It’s not a bad look, but I’m also not crazy about it either. It’s hard to love every alternate jersey that comes out.

Actor Jerry Ferrara will be the head scout and will look to add only five lucky NBA 2K gamers to the Knicks’ squad.

As you can see in the press release above, the Knicks will be holding a qualifying period in January, in order to allow people to try out in February. The draft is in March and the games will be starting in May, like I said earlier in this article.
I’m sure every gamer in the New York, tri-state area thinks they’re good enough to make the team. We’ll see you gets to rep the Knicks.
