Saw that vid on reddit, loved watching it. Man, we were really spoilt in the 90s with so many players you couldn't help but root for, don't think I fully appreciated it at the time.

Agreed. Ive mentioned it a few time. I didnt fully appreciate the 90s knicks until years later. I was always pissed we got close but lost. Clearly after watching the **** show from 2001-2017 ive appreciated the 90s knicks much more. Now that i feel better about the direction we are going in I could look back and enjoy those days.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Those Spree years were great. CambyMan and LJ and KrazyEyes; it was too bad that all happened way too late in Ewing's career. A slightly more mobile Ewing and that series would have possibly been a bit different.

One short Spree baseline j away from forcing game 6.

KrazyEyes Returns for the Utah game turnaround the geriatric division title year! It wasn't all **** show.

Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make the playoffs.

It was interesting hearing how LJ injured his back- I was never really sure how he'd done it and couldn't find any articles about it when I went searching. Still, if he'd never gotten the back injury, he'd never of become a Knick

yes...crazy how careful pro athletes must be to minimize risk. who would have thought that it could happen at a pickup game. I am sure he kept that info on a need to know or even confidential for a long time.

the commercial idea with larry bird and magic johnson was awesome.

I guarantee that it was Larry Bird that cancelled it.

What a great time it was to be a Knicks fan. I appreciated every single game. I hope to enjoy basketball even half that much again.

Mr. Dolan gave Mr. Spree a great opportunity after he choked his coach, and Mr. Spree treated Jim very badly in return. He deserves no praise.

Some of us genuinely don't care how anyone treats Dolan- it's not our priority, or even on the radar- why would it be?

lol.

I wonder if he talked about MDA doing the same thing after he shot the ball at the opponents basket right before halftime..he was a DNP CD for about 20 games after that.
