New York Knicks Betting History

Despite their successful 2012/2013 season in which the Knicks took out their first divisional title in nine years, their 2013/2014 season was less successful. They went from a winning season of 54-28 to 37-45. They weren't a successful betting proposition either, considering they only beat the spread in 46.34 percent of their games. The New York Knicks are a high scoring side however, and therefore betting on the Over option in the Over/Under points betting market was a very profitable betting play and was successful in over 56 percent of games.

New York Knicks History

The New York Knicks are one of the foundation franchises of the NBA and along with the Boston Celtics are the only original NBA franchises still located in its original city. The Knicks were highly successful in the early years of the NBA but were unable to win a NBA Championship despite making the NBA Finals in three straight seasons. The Knicks struggled in the early 1960s but returned to the playoffs in 1967 and finally won their first NBA Championship in 1970 before adding a second in 1973. The Knicks were consistent playoff qualifiers in the 1980s and led by Patrick Ewing were one of the best franchises of the 1990s but were unable to win a third NBA Championship. The Knicks struggled in the 2000s, both on and off the court, and have spent big money to bring in star players in recent seasons. They missed out on playoffs in 2014 after qualifying three years in a row, but hope to turn it back around come the next season.

New York Knicks Star Player: Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony was selected with the third overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets. Anthony had an outstanding rookie season and was considered extremely unlucky not to win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award. Anthony became the undisputed leader of the Nuggets and led the franchise to the playoffs in five straight seasons. Anthony became a regular NBA All-Star selection in 2007 and was a key member of the 2008 Olympics gold medal winning Dream Team. During the 2010/2011 NBA schedule Anthony was traded to the New York Knicks after becoming frustrated at the Nuggets. In 2014, Anthony set the Madison Square Garden and the Knicks' single-game scoring record with a career-high 62 points against the Charlotte Bobcats.He led the Knicks to the playoffs in his first three seasons at the franchise, as well as earning the team it's first divisional title in nine years. Despite the Knicks's luckluster 2013/2014 season, Anthony still made the NBA All-Star team (his 7th) and will hope to lead the Knicks to a more consistent season this year.

New York Knicks Star From the Past: Patrick Ewing

Patrick Ewing was selected with the first overall pick of the 1985 NBA draft by the New York Knicks. Ewing became a star played instantly and despite missing a number of games with injury, he won the 1986 NBA Rookie of the Year Award. Ewing led the Knicks to thirteen straight playoff appearances as well as the 1993 and 1994 NBA Finals. Ewing was unable to win a NBA Championship and is considered one of the best players never to win a NBA Championship. Ewing was selected as a NBA All-Star on eleven occasions and remains the Knicks career leader for most games played, points scored, rebounds, blocks and steals. Ewing left the Knicks in 2000 and had unsuccessful stints at the Seattle SuperSonics and the Orlando Magic.

New York Knicks Head Coach: Derek Fisher

In June 2014, Fisher was hired by the New York Knicks to be the team's head coach, signing a five-year, $25 million deal. Fisher said his relationship with Jackson, who had become the president of the Knicks, was a major factor in his decision to join the team. This is Fisher's first stint as a coach, or any office postion for that matter, considering he only retired from playing last season. He played professionally for 18 seasons, spending the majority of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers, with whom he won five NBA championships. He has also served as president of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA).
