The New York Knicks were founded in 1946 and are one of only three teams left since the NBA was founded. They play in the Eastern Conference in the Atlantic Division and play their home games in the time-honored Madison Square Garden. The name is derived from Knickerbockers, which was the name for the calf-length trousers that were typical of the time. The Knicks have won the NBA championship twice in 1970 and 1973. During that time, stars like Walt Frazier and Earl Monroe played in the Knicks. In 1985 Patrick Ewing was signed up for the first draft lottery. Together with John Starks and coach Pat Riley, the Knicks were among the strongest teams in the east, but regularly failed at the Chicago Bulls. Only when Michael Jordan left the Bulls could the Knicks move into the NBA final, but lost to Hakeem Olajuwon and the Houston Rockets. In 1999 they made it back to the final, but lost to the San Antonio Spurs. From the 2000s, the New York Knicks sank into insignificance. Stars like Carmelo Anthony or Amar’e Stoudemire could not prevent this. Every year the Knicks fans hope that the team can sign a franchise player in the Free Agency, but there are regular rejections.

What colors and logos are most popular?
The team colors of the New York Knicks are orange and blue. The team logo was a figure called Father Knickerbocker who was dribbling a basketball in a hat and dumbbell. In 1965 the logo was changed to a basketball and a bold Knicks lettering above it. This was adapted several times in the coming years, including with dark red and dark blue as the new team colors from 1980 to 83. In 1993, a gray triangle was added to the background and the perspective was adjusted. This logo is still the official logo of the team in a slight color variation and can be seen on most New York Knicks hats. Most hats are black or blue. Some retro hats have the logo without a triangle from 1990 as a motif, but older logo variations are rarely seen.
