Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): Despite playing in The Big Apple, a place that produces basketball legends, the New York Knicks are one of the most snakebitten franchises in NBA history. When you celebrate your team’s championships in 1970 and 1973, there’s a drought. To that end, we’d bet most fans can’t name more than two players on those title squads. Considering he does Knicks play-by-play, and has for more than 20 years, you get Walt Frazier correct by default.
Are the Knickerbockers title bound in the 2014-2015 NBA season? The answer is oh heck no, even with Phil Jackson taking over as president, and first-year coach Derek Fisher teaching players the Zen Master’s famous triangle offense, which will admittedly take time to learn. Factor in last year’s disastrous season, and it makes sense that the Knicks rank 17th in offense and 25th in defense in NBA 2K15.
