The New York Knicks are one of the most iconic franchises in the NBA and are always one of the most popular. The Knicks are located in the biggest basketball city in the world and fans here are known for their knowledge of the game. Although the Knicks have not won an NBA title since the 1970s, people from all over the world recognize the Knicks’ logo.
Madison Square Garden is known as the “World’s Most Famous Arena” and players from every team look forward to playing in Manhattan. The Knicks have seen some troubled times in recent years, but with a solid nucleus intact, the Knicks are poised for success in the future.
Even though the front-office has improved the team drastically on the court, the franchise also wants the players to wear something a little more aesthetically pleasing. The Knicks unveiled their new jerseys today and went back to a retro design donned in the 1980s and 1990s.
Amar’e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler raved about the jerseys and those two players are excited about the new change. Although redesigning their jerseys will have little impact on their play on the court, it is always a great idea to increase team morale.
At first look the most obvious change is the way the “New York” is laid out. The words are less arched than on the previous jersey and the numbers also seem to be elongated.
