New York Knicks Tickets
The New York Knicks is a legendary team founded in 1946. Although they had a slow start in the early years, after the team drafted Willis Reed in 1964, the team’s luck began to change. Reed played for the Knicks for the next 10 years. The team won their first NBA title in 1969-1970 with Hall of Fame players including Reed, Walt Frazier, Bill Bradley and Dave DeBusschere. The team faced off the Los Angeles Lakers in an intense playoff series—one of the most memorable in NBA history. The Knicks and Lakers continued to meet on the court over the following years, heating up an intense rivalry between the two teams throughout the 1970s. In 1985, the Knicks drafted Patrick Ewing, which led to many more wins for the team over the years, although the team did not win any titles. During this time, the Knicks’ rivalry with the Chicago Bulls began to bloom with the rising stardom of Michael Jordan. But the Knicks eventually won its first division title in almost two decades in 2012-2013 with the picking of Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. You can see these dramatic playoffs with the Knicks at their home base in the amazing Madison Square Garden in Midtown Manhattan or at your local city. Tickets are available at StubHub.
