The Knicks hardly need an introduction. The most expensive and profitable team in the NBA didn't get those titles by sitting around doing nothing. They have two NBA titles and play in the historic Madison Square Garden, arguably the world's best venue for events of any kind. Going to a Knicks home game is an experience unlike any other.
Founded in 1946, the New York Knicks (short for "Knickerbockers") are one of two teams from the original NBA that is still playing in their original arena. In this case, that arena is the historic Madison Square Garden. Because of their age and unchanging fan base, the Knicks have become one of the most widely-known teams in sports. No slow start for this team. The Knicks made several consecutive playoff appearances during the '50s, however, they never managed to take home a championship.
In the late '60s though, after acquiring rookies Phil Jackson and Walt Frazier and with all-stars Dick Barnett and Willis Reed, the Knicks played one of the most famous NBA Finals series of all time. Tied 2-2 against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Knicks suffered a crushing blow in game 5 when Willis Reed tore a muscle in his leg. Without their all-star, the Knicks lost game 6. Before game 7, Reed limped onto the floor in a dramatic display of dedication to his team. Statistically, Reed was a non-factor in the game, but his brave display led the Knicks to a 113-99 victory over the Lakers. 3 years later, the Knicks defeated the Lakers again to win their second NBA Title.
The Knicks acquired Patrick Ewing in 1985. Although Ewing was an NBA standout, the Knicks were not. They recorded 23 wins and 59 losses that year. Not until the 1987 season, when the Knicks hired coach Rick Pitino did things start to shape up for the Knicks. In 1993, the Knicks reached the Finals for the first time in 20 years. The Houston Rockets claimed the title though, defeating the Knicks in 7 games. The Knicks made another run in 1998, only to be stopped short by Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs.
Today, the Knicks are led by Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler. In the 2013, they ended with the second best record in the Eastern Conference and made an impressive run through the playoffs..
