They just don’t make stock photo backdrops like they used to.

SO MANY DEGREES

From the deep archives. Of course 9-year-old me had to sign it to be official. Featuring original bulletin board pushpin holes and Herb William’s signature. Knicks put up 130 on the 76ers. Frame-worthy.

NYC IS A STATE OF MIND, BEST REPRESENTED BY CHARLES OAKLEY’S ELBOW. I’LL BE BACK.



KNICKS VS. SUNS BRAWL, 1993

Warmup windbreakers tearing, assistant coaches flying everywhere. Greg Anthony snuffs KJ, and still keeps his silk shirt fresh, pre-dress code. Starks does his signature fight move, a.k.a forehead-to-forehead trash talking. Even Rolando Blackman gets up off the bench looking for some, so you know it’s good.

At the time, Phoenix and New York were the two best teams in their respective divisions. The league handed out $160,000 in fines.

The brawl doesn’t really get going until the 4:00 minute mark, but it’s worth watching the fight-before-the-fight, if only to see how funny Danny Ainge looks when he’s mad.

Gotta love the clean deco lines on that 90s Suns court design.

JORDAN BLOWS IT, 1992

With Chicago leading, 48-39, with 4 minutes 30 seconds left in the first half, Jordan missed an uncontested breakaway dunk slamming the ball hard off the back rim. The crowd roard for more than a minute, and the energy in the building seemed to transfer to the Knicks. New York ended the first half with an 11-3 run, closing to 51-50 after Chicago had built a 13-point first-quarter lead.

I miss the old center court logo.
