Knicks fans name their new D-League team ... the Knicks
MAY 14, 2014 11:00p ET
After suffering through another losing season, New York Knicks fans who watched all of the losses may not have been the ones to ask when the team needed a name for its new Developmental League affiliate.
The team held a fan vote and the fans chose to name New York's D-League team ... the Knicks. So they either love the Knicks name, or they think the Knicks play like a D-League team after watching Carmelo Anthony & Co. go 37-45 this season.
The Westchester Knicks will replace the Erie BayHawks as the Knicks' D-League affiliate and debut during the 2014-15 season.
The logo appears to be a Knickerbocker, which was a member of Manhattan's aristocracy in the 19th century, playing basketball.
