Okay, so training camp isn’t opening for awhile, and all the news in the papers is either about Jeffries (who I think we have covered) and the sexual harrassment thing (which I doubt any of us have much to say on), so let’s try something different. Let’s all share some memories of classic Knick wins of the past ten years! We all know the playoff wins by heart, so let’s try just regular season games that people may have forgotten – so no playoff games, folks!
Here’s a few of my picks:
Starks’ buzzer-beater over Phoenix (1997). Wow, was it awesome, or what? That was the point where I thought the 1996-97 team was really special. Starks scored about 11 points in the fourth quarter, including the game winning three, which he got off JUST before the buzzer. The papers the next day had a great headline – something like O:OO BABY!
Allan Houston’s 53 against the Lakers (2003). Houston was just really special that season. What a remarkable year from a perimeter player on a bad team.
The Milwaukee comeback (2004). Granted, it was only a drive to be the #8 seed and be swept in the first round, but at the time, it sure was exciting seeing the Knicks make their run to the playoffs, and this game was a great one, with a ferocious fourth quarter comeback.
Houston and Sprewell go for 30 apiece (1999). Man, remember when this seemed like it would happen a lot more often? But after this Orlando game in 1999, how many times did they even do it after that one?
Now you folks share some classic Knick wins from the regular season since the 1996/97 season, and point out some good ones that I didn’t mention!
