Here’s a video done by Erie Times-News photographer Janet B. Kummerer did on Allan Houston, a former star guard of the New York Knicks who is now the general manager of basketball operations for the Erie BayHawks.

An assistant general manager with the Knicks, Houston was in Erie on Monday. The Knicks are the sole NBA affiliate of the BayHawks, who are entering their fourth season in the D-League.

One more.

If the Erie BayHawks (27-13) win at Iowa (31-11) in today’s 5 p.m. game, they will clinch a playoff berth for the second time in their three-year D-League history.

If they lose, the BayHawks can still clinch if Fort Wayne loses at Maine today. That game begins at 5 p.m. as well.

With Erie having 10 games left, it will almost certainly make the playoffs. The key for the BayHawks is to move up in the seeding.

Right now, they’re fourth and although the top four teams get home-court advantage in a best-of-3 series, the top three get to pick their opponent.

Iowa, Tulsa and Rio Grande Valley are the top three seeds right now. Erie is 2-6 against those three teams this season. If you’re the fourth team, you basically have the remaining team the top three teams didn’t want to play. Now you might get lucky and draw a team you match up with, but then again, you may draw a team that can give you problems.
