The Knicks have been one of the favorites of the United States for most of the team's existence. New York is the largest market available in the U.S. and the team makes a lot of money and attention regardless of how much the team achieves success. The team has been in landfills for years, but that once were a successful team, powerful. The late 60's and early 70's treated the New York Knicks great. The team was led by star player Walt "Clyde" Frazier and directed by Red Holzman. The team had just been in a run of not making the playoffs for the better part of 10 years when things were resumed in 1968. The team went on to become a solid contender for the championship every year for almost a decade. The team really started hitting its passage in 1970. In 1970 the team assembled a record 18 consecutive wins (the record is still intact) and won 60 games.

Unfortunately for the Knicks, Willis Reed was injured and missed the rest of the game. Despite the loss of Reed, the team went on to take a come from behind victory in Game 5. The team could not close the series in Game 6 without Reed and the series is stretched to the limit of 7 games. The seventh game one of the classic moments in NBA history. Willis Reed was wounded and not expected to play. Against all odds Reed limped to the bench and on the court ready to play in the game. He did not play one of his best games, but scoring the first 2 blocks of the game. That was enough to inspire the team motivated to take the championship in 1970. That victory marked the first NBA championship with the New York Knicks. In 1973 the team was able to bring home another NBA championship in New York. This was the highlight of the race that the Knicks did in the 70's. These two championships to help the team to be remembered as one of the best teams in the 70's. The Knicks have not been the same since those glory days. They have managed to make the NBA Finals to win games in the playoffs, but have not been able to bring home a championship for nearly 40 years.
