After deciding that the Big Apple was ready for a new breed of slam-dunking heroes, former sports journalist Ned Irish
established the franchise in 1946. According to legend, the Knickerbocker name was chosen at random from a hat and would eventually
be shortened to the snappier modern version of the moniker. The club's first match was played before the year was out, seeing
the side overcome the Toronto Huskies in front of a 7,000-plus crowd. Originally competing in the Basketball Association of
America, the league merged with the National Basketball Association to become the contest fans know and love around the globe
today: the NBA. Over the proceeding decades, the NYK would go on to win the championship in 1970 and 1973. From their formation
right up to the present day, it has played host to a galaxy of stars of the game, from '40s and '50s Hall of Famer Harry Gallatin
and '60s superstar Bill Bradley to Patrick Ewing, whose 15-year stint from 1985 was so successful they retired his Number
33 jersey in recognition of his immense on-court achievements.
