New York is considered the mecca of basketball and The Garden is the holiest of places to worship the city game. Yet for all this grand standing, the Knicks have only won two NBA Titles the last almost five decades ago.
That’s correct, there are thousands of Knicks fans who have lived almost half a century without a ticker tape parade. Mecca a misery.
A franchise that realized its glory by playing team basketball, especially on defense, and coached by the basketball savvy Red Holzman.
