The Knicks finished the 2016-2017 NBA year with a record of just 31-51. They failed to make the NBA Playoffs. As the team settles into a groove with head coach Jeff Hornacek this year, it might prove to be more generous to the Knicks.
The New York Knicks (short for the Knickerbockers) are one of the oldest and most popular teams in the NBA, founded way back in 1946 as a member of the Basketball Association of America. With their fiercely loyal New York fans, iconic Madison Square Garden arena, and a team history that includes two NBA Championships, eight Conference Titles, five Division Titles, and legendary NBA players like Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, Bernard King, and Walt Frazier, few franchises in sports have as much to be proud of as the Knicks.
