A-Rod, champion Yankees honored at Knicks game

BY foxsports • November 7, 2009

Seven of the World Series winners continued their day of celebrating Friday by coming onto the floor after the first quarter of the Knicks' game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With Yankees fan LeBron James standing and clapping from the sideline, Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Melky Cabrera, Joba Chamberlain and Freddy Guzman received a standing ovation while Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" blared over the arena's speakers.

Former Yankee Bernie Williams, who has been nominated for a Latin Grammy, played the national anthem on his guitar before the game.

Earlier Friday, the Yankees had a parade through Lower Manhattan.
