Let Us Not Forget About The Knicks!

Despite our obvious excitement over the fancy New York Rangers (in Seven), I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that both occupants of the World's Most Famous Arena have advanced to the playoffs.  The New York Knickerbockers have a date with the Boston Celtics.

Believe it or not, the Knicks and Celtics are even in playoff matchups.  One would assume that the C's would have the better of it, since they've won so many titles (but not as many as that certain baseball team.  What?).  Yet the two teams have met twelve times, beginning in 1951, and through their last showdown (in 1990), each team has won six times.

The Knicks are after their first title since 1973.   Yes, that's correct.

So yes, I'm looking forward to that also.  It could be a great spring for sports fans in New York.
