Who’s Who of Westchester: Adam Eliassof

By Katie Hatch | May 9, 2016

After attending 4-5 Westchester Knicks games in the inaugural season, Adam Eliassof made the decision to become a Season Ticket Member in year two. A Knicks fan since he was born, the Houlihan Lawrence realtor was looking for something fun to do during his slow season. “Real estate is slower in the winter,” explained Eliassof. “The Westchester Knicks season is perfect timing for me to have a little fun in my downtime.”

With seats right behind the Knicks bench, Adam gets an up close view of the action. “Mike Miller is a great coach,” he said, “and it’s nice to see the hustle from all of the guys.” A self-described “big kid,” Adam loves having a professional team in Westchester due in part to how close it is to him. “It’s so local. 10 minutes, and I’m here!”

One of the biggest perks he’s enjoyed with Westchester is getting to meet so many people. “It’s been really great to form connections from guys like Chuck (our in-game host) and Mark Fratto (our PA Announcer) and all of the Westchester Knicks staff, to making business connections and even meeting celebrities.”

Speaking of celebrities, Adam has met his share, from movie stars like Ben Stiller, Knicks Legends such as Allan Houston and John Starks, and even current Knicks players. “I got to meet Kristaps Porzingis outside of the New York Liberty game I went to (through the Westchester Knicks). I ran into the team store to grab his jersey but it was so early that they didn’t even have it yet!” Adam proudly pulled out his phone, showing off the photos he’s accumulated through the past year including the photos below:

Adam is a familiar face at special events outside of the games, including the 5th Quarter events. He thinks he’s been to all of them except two. “Winter Wonderland was my favorite. Getting to meet all of the players at Stickley Audi was really fun too!”

When asked what his favorite part of the Westchester Knicks experience has been, Adam said, “It’s a family.” We’re glad you feel that way Adam, and we’re happy to have you as a part of the Westchester Knicks family!

Favorite Player: “Jordon Crawford. You never knew what to expect from him. Jimmer is a close second!”

Favorite Promotion: “I like the shooting relay, and also watching the little kids dunk!”

Favorite Moment: “Getting the opportunity to meet Jimmer when he was called up to the New York Knicks. I used to follow him in college – to get to meet him and go through that experience was so amazing. You can’t get that anywhere else. It made my year!”
