A History of Discount New York Knicks Tickets
The first New York Knicks tickets were sold in 1946, when the Basketball Association of America was first formed. The Knickerbockers were one of the founding teams in the BAA and moved to the National Basketball Association when it was formed in 1949 through a merger between the BAA and the National Basketball League. The Knicks are also one of just two teams in the NBA that has remained in the same location since the beginning of the BAA (the other team is the Boston Celtics). The team name “Knickerbockers,” represents early Dutch settlers that were some of the first to call New York home.
Throughout the long history of the team, discount New York Knicks ticket holders have seen their share of up and down seasons. The era of head coach William “Red” Holzman were years of championship seasons, with stars like Walt Frazier and Dick Barnett on the roster. That era ended in 1975 and began a less successful decade for the Knicks. However, the arrival of Patrick Ewing in 1985 saw the Knicks return to their glory days once again. When Ewing retired in 2000, another dry spell hit the team, but since 2010, the Knicks have seen their rising star come back in view.
