Parents moved here from Iran. My dad loved the game of basketball the moment he first saw it in 89' and became a die hard knick fan living in the city. i've been raised in a knick household and been bleeding orange and blue for 16 years since i was in bron in 96 too young to see the '99 run but i've watched highlights. i've grown up in the awful isiah/danton'i era but i'm excited with the team we have now! my favorite knicks right now is shump i absolutley love him. favorite knick of all time has to be Houston (considering i havent watched anyone earlier than 96'). lets end this 40 year drought. bring the title back to NYC!
Knicks fan since 84...favorite knick of all time is Patrick Ewing, loved that Jumper from the corner..favorite Knick moment... John Starks "The Dunk" ...Current favorite Knick..Of course Melo! best talent we have had since Patrick...I once owned a a blue Mustang with orange interior, I love my Knicks the way I love my Yanks...Knicks fan until I sleep forever.
Long Live Dave Checketts!
Are we going to Have a mock Soon? sorry Off-Topic but i wanna be in one so bad lol
Originally a Magic Johnson and Dr. J fan so by virtue watched the Lakers and Sixers and developed my dislike for the Celtics this way.
I was a big Georgetown fan too so...
My father was a Knicks fan and by '84 he had me watching Knicks games pretty regularly... so when the Knicks drafted Patrick Ewing it was natural that I started watchng the Knicks almost exclusively and lost interest in Sixers (Dr J was getting old anyway) and then the Lakers (Interest died when Magic retired).
So from about 84-85 I became a Knicks fan.
My favorite player is Patrick Ewing. My second favorite Alan Houston. But Derek Harper is a close 3rd. I've got a laundry list of others that I have loved through the years.
Disliked Randolph and Marbury and eventually Curry.
My current favorite is Melo. I think eventually Melo will become my favorite Knick of all time.
2 of the most memorable moments for me are Trent Tucker and his 3pt with less than a second on the clock and Starks dunking on Jordan.
I have been a member of this board since the dark days of Isiah back in 2007, though since I moved to Japan for a couple of years in the middle, for a while (though I read posts daily) I didn't post very often.

Growing up in NY, there was a big Georgetown craze in 82-84. It was all about Patrick, then the Knicks actually got him. I've been a Knick fan since.
My man Ike got a bad rap
