Knicks vs Clippers
From Madison Square Garden , New York , comes the Franchise that has been in the NBA League since 1946. The New York Knicks are one of the most popular franchises in the League today.
With Donnie Walsh as the manager, the Knicks performed brilliantly this last season. They have a strong line up now, with the acquisition of giants like Amar'e Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony, and Chauncey Billups.
The 2010-2011 season saw the New York Knicks qualify for the playoffs after their last playoff in 2004.
The New York Knickerbockers
The origin of the New York Knicks, as we know them today, goes back to the year 1946. They were established as a founding member of the Basketball Association of America and were then called the New York Knickerbockers.
The name has an interesting tale behind it. The "Knickerbocker" was the pseudonym used by Washington Irving when he wrote A History of New York . The name is used to denote the descendants of the original Dutch settlers, who later became the inhabitants of New York . The name stuck and even the New Yorkers are sometimes called the Knickerbockers.
The franchise was originally the Knickerbockers. However, they gained popularity as the Knicks. The New York Knicks joined the NBA after their merger with the BAA.
Knicks' early years in the League
The years 1968 to 1975 saw the Knicks at top form. William 'Red' Holzman was the Head Coach as the Knicks stepped into the League. They entered the playoffs in 1968 with the help of players like Bill Bradley and Walt "Clyde" Frazier . In the 1969–70 season , the Knicks had a single season record in the NBA with 18 straight victories . They won their first championship title in 1970 and continued their winning streak. They beat the Lakers to win their second championship title in 1973.
The next few years saw the decline of the franchise. They had to wait until the acquisition of the center Patrick Ewing in the 1984-85 season, to move any forward. Even though they had no championship titles during this season, the Knicks made it to the playoffs many time.
The declining 2000s
The trade of Patrick Ewing in the year 2000 was a great setback to the Knicks. This loss was compensated only in 2008, when Donnie Walsh joined the team.
