dfault6986

Pop is from Union City, love me some Knicks and Mets!


SanctorumAeternam

Ahh the Mets - where BKN and NYK fans can find common ground haha


metsknicks49ers

Yup, never lived in NY in my life. Moved from CO to NJ when I was 4, and my dad took me to 6 games in 93 when nose bleeders were still affordable. We won every game we went to I think we only lost like 4 home games all season in 93. Very few understand what a stadium is like unless they went to the garden in the 90s. It was unreal. I wasn’t at the 4 point play but remember watching it live and you could feel the energy from MSG through the TV screen. When the Knicks are good, the Garden is the best place in all of sports. Better than the Superdome (although that atmosphere is close) better than the Seahawks stadium (fuck a seahawk). I’ve never been to a Duke or Kentucky game but I think those stadiums are just too small. The garden is big enough to create a momentum but not too massive that it’s like a cavern. I’d kill to have a team like we had in the 90s again


The_Royale_We

I went to the Ewing game in the '94 ECF that sent us to the finals. Greatest live sporting event Ive ever been to. The entire city was alive for the Knicks on the streets after. The Giants parade was the closest feeling to that Ive seen.


metsknicks49ers

Not commenting on the 2011 giants parade because we were absolutely robbed in that NFC chip. YouTube Ahmad Bradshaw fumble, that game was handed to the giants.

Same😌


AltRichKidd

I'm an Australian. I've been following the Knicks since I came into this world in 1991.


81-K

Yep, another Aussie here too. Been a knicks fan since the 90s. Also from Latvian heritage, so the Porzingis draft was my greatest moment as a fan that then turned into my most disappointing moment.

Nice. I travelled for work to lake placid NY when we played the hawks. Saw a fan Ewing jersey. We're everywhere,


tooltomus

Many people associate New York with the city only, upstate NY is a whole other world!


arvs17

As far as I know, we have a huge international fanbase among all teams, if not the biggest. I am from Southeast Asia and never even been to NYC yet lol

Contron792

Nope from the Bay Area, CA


Kingwillrobyn3

Parents then, how are u a Knicks fan?


tmnit

Not OP, but I’m also from the Bay. My dad and I started watching the team during Linsanity and I stuck with the Knicks even after he left.


Contron792

To make a long story short, I never watched the NBA till high school and I went to a new high school so all my new friends were into the NBA, didn’t want to hop on the Warriors bandwaggon and I loved Kristaps from playing 2K. So I became a Knicks fan and haven’t looked back since (even after he broke my heart by forcing his way out).


Jessica4ACODMme

In Nebraska here. Have never lived in NYC.


Jessica4ACODMme

I'm lucky that Nebraska gets so many East Coast transplants. My favorite radio station is WFMU, one of my best friends was born and raised in the Bronx. I got into basketball later in life. And honestly, the Knicks fanbase being such an amazing bunch is what really sold me. The funny thing is when I say I'm a Knicks fan, people around here ask "Are you from New York?" without even thinking.

SYRACUSE NY IN THE HOUSE


youngster_matt

YeeYee


Maury_Finkle

Yes but now PA


dskatz2

Same here. Philly. I miss NY every day, but I'm also able to own a house in a city, which is something that never would've happened in NY. The funny thing is I'll probably move to MA in a few years, so I'll be surrounded by Celtics fans.

whatsmyusername007

Nope


p3nguin89

Grew up in Upstate NY but didn't become a fan until a little over a decade ago. Fandom is a funny thing - sometimes it's regional, sometimes you like a player, it was a parent's favorite team, countless reasons tbh. You don't find your fandom, your fandom finds you! I actually have Lebron to thank for being a Knicks fan - didn't know enough to realize how stupid it was to think he may come to the Knicks. Thought it would be awesome to root for the best player in the league. Jumped on anyway since I got the MSG channel and enjoyed rooting for Amare and that bunch, then Melo, and then eternal suffering until now. The Knicks-community kept me staying, nothing like it. NYK 'til I die.


King_ofCanada

VerySuspiciousFish

Originally from Finland. I've lived in over a dozen states in the US. Nowhere else have I experienced the total feeling of love from a stranger than in NY. It's also the only place where a total stranger has tried to bite me. Love New York. Love most NY team besides the Yankees and Giants. I'm a glutton for punishment. That being said, I'm also a Mavs, Pistons, and Timberwolves fan. I was a Sixers fan during the Iverson era, and I loved the Rockets when Ming was playing. The Knicks though, I'll always love the Knicks.
