About the New York Knicks
New York Knicks Tickets
The New York Knicks are one of the most storied franchises of the NBA. After all, not every team has a home court as epic as Madison Square Garden. New York isn’t just the ‘City That Never Sleeps’—it’s the city that’s been crazy for basketball since the Knickerbockers made their debut in 1946.
Like any venerable giant of the NBA, the Knicks have had their fair share of ups and downs, high points and low. From the 1960s through the 1990s, the Knicks boasted a series of legends, from Willis Reed and Clyde Frasier to Bernard King and Patrick Ewing. Though the team has seen recent struggles in the wake of Carmelo Anthony’s departure and its largely unsuccessful rebuilding efforts, die-hard Knicks fans haven’t given up hope!
The Success of the ‘70s and the ‘90s
We can’t discuss Knicks history without mentioning the team’s highly successful performance in the 1970s, with many attributing basketball’s surge in popularity during that time to this iconic New York team. The Knicks took the NBA Finals by storm in both 1970 and 1973 in a series of electrifying games that are still talked about to this day.
The 1970 championship season is one to remember in particular, thanks to the stalwart leadership of Willis Reed during the Knicks’ fight for their lives against the Los Angeles Lakers. Reed played through an injury to give the team a championship win, solidifying a heroic story Knicks fans still revel in today.
However, it was during the 1990s that the team truly captured the imagination of fans everywhere. Thanks to coaches Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy, the 1990s saw the Knicks develop into some of the toughest players in the game, unafraid to catch an elbow — or even occasionally stick one out. Patrick Ewing was hands-down one of the best centers on the court, and between other Knicks of the time like Anthony Mason and Charles Oakley, the team became one of the league’s most formidable competitors.
The New York Knicks Today
In the spring of 2018, the Knicks parted ways with head coach Jeff Hornacek and brought on David Fizdale, previously of the Memphis Grizzlies. Trey Burke and Emmanuel Mudiay both came on late in the year, making things harder for Frank Ntilikina, who is still relatively new to the league. The evolving roster involves some interesting players to keep an eye on, with a variety of young, promising talent.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the Knicks play?
The Knicks play in perhaps the most fabled NBA venue—New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Located in Midtown Manhattan and situated just above Penn Station, MSG is, of course, a legendary venue. This New York landmark has hosted countless concerts and events over the decades and is home to the Knicks and one of New York’s NHL teams, the Rangers.
The 20,000+ modern metropolitan arena opened its doors in 1968 as the fourth NY stadium to bear its name. It’s one of the most tenured venues of its kind in professional sports, holding the title for the oldest arena in the NHL and the second-oldest in the NBA. A fitting home for the Knicks, to say the least!
When do Knicks tickets go on sale?
The Knicks, like every other NBA team, get their schedules well before the season actually begins. So, it’s easy to begin buying and selling tickets before the season opener—and that’s exactly what happens. However, snagging tickets in advance might not be the best way to get them cheap.
When is the best time to buy cheap Knicks tickets?
It’s always a thrill picking up tickets to see your favorite team—we can’t blame you for wanting to book your tickets the moment they go on sale. But snatching those tickets the second they’re available isn’t always the best time to buy. This goes for just about any event!
In truth, waiting as long as possible will get you the best prices for Knicks tickets. There aren’t likely to be any exceptions to this for the time being, especially as the Knicks are rebuilding the team, so do yourself a favor and wait until the price of Knicks tickets drops into your comfort zone before buying.
What’s the best way to buy cheap Knicks tickets?
While you can certainly buy Knicks tickets directly from the NBA at full price, you’re likely to pay top dollar, even if you wait until the last minute. Meanwhile, if you buy from a reseller through a ticket marketplace like Gametime, you’ll get the cheapest possible tickets online.
