Madison Square Garden is the home arena of the Knicks.

The New York Knickerbockers, better known as the New York Knicks, are a professional basketball team based in New York City that competes in the National Basketball Association (NBA). An original member of the NBA, the Knicks play in the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. In its 63 seasons, the franchise has reached the NBA Finals eight times and won two championships. As of the end of the 2008–09 season, New York has won more than 2,400 regular season games, and the team has the fourth-highest victory total in NBA history.[1] Since 1968, the Knicks have played home games at Madison Square Garden.[2]

One of the Basketball Association of America's (BAA) eleven teams during its inaugural season, the Knicks won the league's first game, defeating the Toronto Huskies 68–66 on November 1, 1946.[3] The club qualified for the playoffs in the league's first three seasons before the BAA merged with the National Basketball League in 1949 to form the NBA.[4] Following the merger, New York extended its streak of playoff appearances to nine consecutive years, and reached the NBA Finals each year from 1952 to 1954. The Knicks returned to the Finals in 1970 and defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games for the team's first title. New York and Los Angeles faced each other again in the 1972 Finals, a series that the Lakers won four games to one. The Knicks earned their second NBA championship the following year, as they won a rematch with Los Angeles in five games.

Bill Bradley was a member of the Knicks' 1969–70 and 1972–73 championship-winning teams.

From 1988 to 2001, the franchise reached the playoffs in 14 consecutive seasons, but did not win an NBA title. The team reached its first NBA Finals in 21 years during the 1993–94 season, but lost to the Houston Rockets in seven games. Five years later, New York again lost in the NBA Finals, this time in a five-game series against the San Antonio Spurs. As of 2009, the Knicks have not made the playoffs since 2004, when they lost to the New Jersey Nets in four games.
