    The Knicks and the Pacers met in the playoffs 6 times from 1993-2000. Reggie Miller's clutch performances were frequently followed by jabs at big time Knicks fan Spike Lee, adding fuel to the team rivalry. Everyone remembers the iconic game of 8 points in 9 seconds by Reggie to defeat the Knicks in the 1995 playoffs and the infamous chock hold sign by Reggie to the Knicks and their fans. In the image, you see Reggie and John Starks.

The image taken by Jeff Christensen from Reuters was taken in May 1998 during a playoff game as Larry Johnson (Knicks) and Alonzo Mourning (Heat) squared off, Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy famously grabbed onto Mourning’s leg to prevent the fight. This brawl is infamous in NBA history.

    It's iconic theme and great coverage

    The NBA on NBC theme song is iconic (the song is called Roundball Rock by John Tesh) and the NBA on NBC had superb coverage of the NBA, especially the NBA playoffs. I can hear it now, the theme and Marv Albert saying, "Yes, the Knicks and the Bulls are thee headline attraction on Broadway. Better than 19,000 turning out, another capacity crowd at Madison Square Garden for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final between the New York Knicks and the 2-time defending NBA champion, Chicago Bulls". That was from 1993.

    The 1998–99 NBA lockout was the third lockout in the history of the NBA. It lasted from July 1, 1998 to January 20, 1999, and forced the 1998–99 regular season to be shortened to 50 games per team and that season's All-Star Game to be canceled. The NBA All-Star Game was supposed to be held at First Union Center (now known as Wells Fargo Center) in Philadelphia. The 1998 NBA All-Star Game was held at Madison Square Garden in NYC with Michael Jordan winning All-Star Game MVP.
