The New York Knicks have played in the NBA since the merger of the BAA and the NBL. This meand the club has been around for more than 60 years. Despite this long history in the media capital of the Western Hemisphere, the club has only won two championships.
Those championships came in 1970 and 1973. Then the fans cheered on at MSG as Willis Reed, Dave DeBusschere, Bill Bradley, and Walt Frazier led the team. These four players were the catalyst for the terrific 1970 squad that met the Lakers in the finals. Famously, Reed stepped out onto the court in Game 6 despite playing with a torn muscle in his right leg. He only played a few minutes, but it inspired the upending of the favored Lakers.
A few years later, the Knicks added Jerry Lucas and Earl “The Pearl” Monroe and NY met the Lakers in the NBA finals for the third time in four years. They had met one year previous and were easily dismissed. This time the Knicks (spurred by the play of Frazier and the Pearl) easily defeated the Lakers in the championship series, winning in five games.
The franchise enjoys a phenomenal fan base despite only having won two championships. Other Knicks teams have come close, but these other talented teams were shut out by the Minneapolis Lakers in the 1950s, the Boston Celtics in the 1980s, and the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. Despite enjoying the play of Bernard King, Patrick Ewing, and many more great stars, other team’s dynasties always left them falling short.
There have been futile eras as well, most recently during the Isiah Thomas years, but the Knicks are on the right track now and fans are once again glad to have Knicks tickets to enjoy a game at MSG.
