New York Knicks players Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart take on the ultimate day-off, planned by the Players Tribune, in the heart of New York City, presented by Lexus.

Their adventure begins with a leisurely cruise around the city in a sleek Lexus, setting the stage for a day filled with authentic New York experiences. The first stop on their itinerary is the Arthur Avenue Retail Market, a bustling hub of Italian culture and cuisine, often referred to as the “Little Italy” of the Bronx.

Upon arriving, Jalen and Josh are warmly welcomed by Dave Greco, the charismatic owner of Mike’s Deli. Known for its incredible array of Italian delicacies, Mike’s Deli is a must-visit. Dave, who proudly represents the rich heritage of the market, guides the boys through the art of making authentic mozzarella from scratch. Of course, no visit to Mike’s Deli would be complete without indulging in some of its famous treats.

Next, the adventure continues to Madonia Bakery, a staple of Arthur Avenue since 1918. Here, they meet Daniel Calano-Moore, the bakery’s passionate owner. Daniel introduces them to the sweet side of Italian tradition: filling cannolis. Jalen and Josh take turns piping the rich, velvety ricotta filling into crispy cannoli shells, their faces lighting up with joy and a hint of competitiveness. The bakery is filled with the delightful aroma of freshly baked goods, and the boys enjoy sampling their handiwork, experiencing the perfect balance of crunchy shells and creamy filling.

As their day of culinary exploration winds down, Jalen and Josh take one last trip to check out something truly special: the brand new Player-Tuned Lexus TX. This one-of-a-kind vehicle has been meticulously customized with basketball players in mind, featuring extra legroom, a luxurious interior, and state-of-the-art technology. The duo marvels at the innovative design and the attention to detail that makes this car a perfect fit for athletes like themselves.

Their ultimate day-off comes to an end with smiles and satisfaction, having explored, indulged, and enjoyed every moment.
