The 2016-17 NBA regular season schedule has been released. These are the five most watchable games on the New York Knicks schedule.

The NBA officially released the 2016-17 regular season schedule on Thursday, August 11. NBA watchers have begun to evaluate every detail of every game, including the New York Knicks.

The Knicks won 17 games in 2014-15, the lowest total in franchise history, which led to low expectations last season and a terrible public perception.

The addition of big names Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose has made them interesting again, according to the league anyway.

The Knicks are on national TV 22 times this season after only being on 7 times in 2015-16.

NBA fans were captivated by Kristaps Porzingis while he was a rookie, and that will spill over into his sophomore season. Not to mention the tremendous love that’s following Carmelo Anthony right now as he leads Team USA Basketball in the Olympics.

The league wasn’t easy on the Knicks, as 7 of their first 10 games are against playoff teams from last season. The new look team will be tested right away.

Take a look at the complete schedule here. Preseason games start Oct. 4.
