We've always had a lot of respect and love for Johnny Mac, now we love and respect him just a little bit more.
We caught Spike wearing some more Mitchell & Ness gear over the weekend. This time he's wearing our Knicks Captain's Track Jacket at a book signing for his new book, Giant Steps To Change The World. The signing took place in LA. Too bad his beloved Knicks couldn't come through with a win last night against the Lakers.
Can you believe the NBA season tips off tomorrow? We're ready, are you? There are so many questions and interesting storylines going into this season. Here are a few that have piqued our interest.
- The Heat, of course. Can the big three gel?
- Does this year mark the return of the Knicks? Do the additions of Amar'e Stoudemire and Raymond Felton make them contenders again?
- Are the Thunder for real?
- Are the Celtics aging legs strong enough to make it through the season?
- Will Washington DC be doing the John Wall dance any time soon?
- What will an NBA season without Don Nelson be like?
- Will Sasha Vujacic's engagement to Maria Sharapova affect his play?
- Will anyone be attending Cavaliers games this year?
- Does Tracy McGrady still matter?
- Will the Lakers win their third consecutive title?
So what's on your mind as the NBA season gets underway? Besides this awesome new apparel of course.
Check back for more new NBA apparel coming soon.
Just in time for those hot New York summer days and nights, it's the 1991 - 92 road Knicks jerseys.
The 1991 - 92 season was Pat Riley's first year as head coach of the Knicks. It began a bit of a heyday for the Knicks as their rivalries with the Pistons and Bulls evolved into legendary status. Riley led the Knicks to a 51 - 31 record in 91 - 92 and a first place Atlantic Division finish. In the first round of the playoffs the Knicks faced off against the Chuck Daly led Detroit Pistons and took the series 3 games to 2.
Next up were the Chicago Bulls. In an intense and extremely physical Eastern Conference Finals the Knicks gave the Bulls all they could handle. The series went to seven games with the reigning champs holding on for the game seven victory and a 4 - 3 series win.
But this Knicks team will be forever loved and revered in New York for their grit and passion. We are happy to bring you the jerseys of four of those gritty and passionate 1991 - 92 Knicks.
All Knicks fans know about Dick McGuire and Earl Monroe, but what about the other #15, Wat Misaka?
(No, we don't know why he's wearing #16 in this picture if he was number 15. We're looking into it.)
Check out this interesting article from the New York Times about Misaka, the first non-caucasian in modern professional basketball.
