Playing in Madison Square Garden for or against the New York Knicks is a dream most basketball players growing up. But being a Knicks fan has been tough for a long time, well, not anymore.
There has never been a better time to be a New York Knicks fan than now, obviously, you weren’t a fan or alive during the Patrick Ewing era. The Mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden is always lit up even if the Knicks have been underwhelming for years.
But that change since last season when Julius Randle led Knicks 4th on the EC table and qualified for the playoffs for the first time after 2013. Although the playoffs ended just after the 1st series against the “Ice Trae” led Atlanta Hawks.

Knicks are on a winning streak since pre-season and are looking to repeat last year’s regular season exploits and fans cannot be more happy
Imagine if KD and Kyrie were playing across this side of the river in MSG and who knows Harden would still have joined them here. Jeeez!!!! The bucks would have been facing KD, Randle, and Rose in the Finals rather than KD with 2 injured superstar Brooklyn guards. It surely wouldn’t have ended the way it did.
Knicks are all fired up this season, after a perfect pre-season and a tremendous 138-134, double-overtime win against the Boston Celtics in their opening night of the new season, the fans are also fired up,

They surely do not regret KD not signing with them, they think KD regrets not joining the Knicks, they also haven’t forgotten Trae Young lighting them up last season.

The NBA is obviously more fun when the Knicks are good, with arguably the best fans and also a huge celebrity presence in New York led by Spike Lee. But NBA is now packed with good teams in both the conferences, it’d be tough for the Knicks to repeat how they finished last regular season. And they surely wouldn’t want to repeat their playoff performance.
