New York Knicks
The New York Knicks
The New York Knickerbockers commonly referred to as the Knicks, are an American professional basketball team based in New York City who compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member club of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The Knicks plays their home games at the world famous Madison Square Garden, located in the borough of Manhattan. Along with the Boston Celtics, the Knicks are one of only two original NBA teams still located in its original city.
The Knicks were successful during their early years and were constant playoff contenders under the franchise's first head coach Joe Lapchick. Beginning in 1950, the Knicks made three consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals, all of which were losing efforts. Their only two NBA championships to date have been in 1970 and 1973. The 1980s saw six playoff appearances but in none of these did they reach the finals.
The playoff-level Knicks of the 1990s were led by future Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing when the Knicks made two appearances in the NBA Finals, in 1994 and 1999, though they were unable to win an NBA championship.
Since 2000, the Knicks have struggled to regain their former glory. In 2012–13, the franchise won its first division title in 19 years, but was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Indiana Pacers. According to a 2015 Forbes report, the Knicks were the second most-valuable NBA franchise, worth approximately $2.5 billion.
Many distinguished players have come from the ranks of the New York Knicks since their foundation in 1946. Patrick Ewing, who hailed from Jamaica, is generally thought to be one of the greatest. Playing as a center, one listing rated him as the eighth greatest of all time. One of the finest shooting centers to play, he left the game as the New York Knicks' all-time leader in nearly every significant category and the game's 13th all-time scorer with 24,815 points
Walt Frazier was point guard for the Knicks for whom he played from 1967 to 1977. He earned the nickname Clyde for wearing a similar hat to Warren Beatty as featured in the film “Bonnie and Clyde”. Together with Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, the duo become one of the most effective guard combinations of all time, leading the Knicks to the 1973 NBA championship. That pairing is one of few backcourts ever to feature two Hall of Famers and NBA 50th Anniversary Team members.
Center Willis Reed served the Knicks with distinction as player and coach; his entire playing career (1964-74) being with the club. He was the only Knicks player in history to be an MVP and he was duly inducted into the Hall of Fame.
