Sports Team
    (1946- )
    Located in New York City
    Won two NBA championships (1970, 1973)
    Eight retired numbers: Walt Frazier's #10, Dick Barnett's #12, Dick McGuire and Earl Monroe's #15, Willis Reed's #19, Dave DeBusschere's #22, Bill Bradley's #24, Patrick Ewing's #33, and Red Holzman's #613 (Coach)
    Other former and current players include Bernard King, Mark Jackson, Charles Oakley, John Starks, Allen Houston, and Stephon Marbury
    The team is a charter member in the NBA's largest market, yet they've only won two titles.
    Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a game against them.
    Many people thought they were part of a large-market conspiracy when they were rewarded with the first pick in the lottery, which they used on Patrick Ewing.
    Even Ewing couldn't deliver a title for them.
    They retired a three-digit number.
    Despite having one of the NBA's largest payrolls, they haven't received much bang for their buck lately.
    Jeff Van Gundy has had his face punched, his body trampled on, and his car damaged while coach of the Knicks.
    They have the most expensive seats in the NBA, and they have rowdy celebrity fans like perpetual towel-waver Spike Lee and a drunken Calvin Klein.
    The broadcast of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, which the Knicks were playing, was interrupted by the O.J. Simpson car chase.
    They won the first ever NBA game played as they defeated the Toronto Huskies 68-66.
    They are one of the two charter members of the NBA (the former BAA) to retain their location and nickname (the Boston Celtics are the other).
    They had great rivalries with the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers in the 1990's.
    Former Knicks DeBusschere, Bradley and Lucas were all Rhodes Scholars who played together.
    Bradley eventually became a U.S. senator and ran for the Democratic presidential nomination.
    They are one of the last NBA teams to use an organ during games.
    They play in the NBA's oldest and most famous arena, Madison Square Garden.
