Booking New York Knicks Player Appearances
The New York Knicks, as they are commonly called, are actually are the New York Knickerbockers. This team has a great deal of history as they were one of the first teams to play professional basketball back in 1946 in what was then called the Basketball Association of America. The BAA was the fore runner to today’s NBA when they merged with the National Basketball league in 1949. The only other team that is still in existence that has never moved location or changed their name is the Boston Celtics. The team is based in New York City, New York; members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
The Knicks not only have a long history, they also have had a great deal of success. In 1950, they made their first championship showing and would do so for the next two years though they did not win any championships during this period. It would not be until the seventies when the Knicks actually won two championships in 1970 and 1973. One of the most popular and successful players of the Knicks was Patrick Ewing, who was the first player drafted in the new draft system that is similar to the NFL draft in 1985. Some of the other exceptional players over the years have included Hall of Famers Willis Reed, Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe as well as Bernard King and Charles Oakley. Today, leading players include Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Baron Davis.
