Another season for the New York Knicks means another roller coaster ride in Madison Square Garden! The 2011 – 2012 season was one to remember. A slow start to the season left Knicks fans with no choice but to boo, and those boos went in all directions. Carmelo Anthony took a fair share of criticism, Mike D’Antoni skipped town due to the finger pointing, and Amare Stoudemire was labeled a shadow of his former self. Jeremy Lin came to the rescue and soothed Knicks fans hungry stomachs for a historic yet short-lived run, but he’s now gone. No combination of players have been able to catapult the Knicks back to championship glory. Maybe it’s time for a change that doesn’t involve the roster or front office. The fans should look in the mirror and see how they can help change the tide! Everything a fan needs to show support is right here!
Every Knicks fan needs to brush up on Knicks history. The great Willis Reed led their last championship team. As the team leader, he exuded a stoic toughness that struck fear into the hearts of opponents. That grit dripped into the rest of the team. Earl Monroe brought a smooth game that fit the big city, and we can’t forget about the Walt Clyde Frazier who might’ve dressed just as good as he played. Remember who paved the way and collect memorabilia of players like Dave Debusshchere. Click here and take a look at the New York Times Compilation of the greatest moments in Knicks history.
