    After a nearly 40 years without tasting glory, the New York Knicks have finally brought an NBA Championship back to the Empire State. The 2011-12 season was one filled with ups and downs as the Knicks finished fourth in the Eastern Conference. This was a stark contrast from TBL's season 1 in which New York finished with the NBA's best regular season record. Unfortunately, an OA ending glitch prevented New York from playing in the ECF and subsequently competing for a title.

    New York barely squeezed by a very tough Toronto squad in the opening round, but it was relatively smooth sailing from there as Detroit and OKC struggled to keep up with New York's offensive firepower.

    The Knicks really put together a strong run in the later rounds, led by Carmelo Anthony's efficient scoring from outside and Iman Shumpert's tenacity off the bench. Baron Davis also had an incredible playoff series, averaging 22 PTS and 9 AST which was up from about 12 and 7 in the regular season. Tyson Chandler really stepped up in the dance as well averaging 11 boards to go along with 2.6 BLKs/gm.

    With a title now under their belts, the Knicks hope to sustain their high level of play for the 12-13 season, but will have to hold off talented contenders such as OKC, TOR, DET, and POR. New York loses a few pieces to their puzzle in FA, but the core of Melo, STAT, Tyson, and Baron Davis remain in tact. Can New York repeat as NBA champs? Only time will tell.
