Highs and Lows

The initial decade was one of promise as the Lapchick led Knicks made it to three NBA finals. However, the next decade saw the team’s performances drop off.
Knicks fans regard the era under Red Holzman as one of the most successful. This was the time when the franchise lifted the championship twice during the 70s. The next two decades once again saw near misses and heartbreaking losses. During this time, the Knicks had in their lineup Patrick Ewing who would go on to be inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame. In spite of all Ewing’s efforts, the Knicks were not able to replicate the success of the 70s.
