More about the New York Knicks
The New York Knicks began playing professional basketball in the newly established Basketball Association of America, or BAA, during the 1946-1947 season. Ned Irish, an American basketball promoter who was then in charge of Madison Square Garden, became the first president of the team. He came up with the name Knickerbockers and hired the first head coach. The Knicks started playing in the NBA after the BAA merged with the National Basketball League in 1949. As a member of the NBA, the team won two championships in 1970 and 1973 under the guidance of Hall of Fame coach Red Holzman. The New York Knicks are associated with some of the most popular players of all time. Hall of Famers Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, Bernard King, Willis Reed, Bill Bradley, Nathaniel Clifton, Dick McGuire, Dave DeBusschere, Richie Guerin, Earl Monroe and Harry Gallatin all spent at least five years with the team. The Knicks were also involved in one of the most famous games of all time. In game five of the 1970 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Knicks rallied from a 16-point deficit after Willis Reed tore a muscle in his right leg. The team won the championship in game seven.
New York Knicks notable rivalries
The New York Knicks and Boston Celtics are natural rivalries due to their geographic proximity and the rivalry between the cities of Boston and New York in general. They are also two of the three founding members of the BAA that still play. Both teams have had memorable clashes over the years, including the 1973 Eastern Conference Finals, which the Knicks won in game seven. The Knicks have also had notable rivalries at various times with the Philadelphia 76ers, Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls.
