1999 NBA Champions - New York Knicks

Preview of the celebration of the Knicks winning the Championship in 1999 and Patrick Ewing FINALLY getting his ring:
June 19, 1999, NEW YORK CITY - Patrick Ewing and Co., finally win the Championship that they deserve...The New York Knicks had to face the L.A. Lakers in a huge Game 7 in which the Knicks won easily, 107-90. Since Michael Jordan retired after the Bulls won the NBA Finals in 1998, the Knicks swept the Chicago Bulls in four games, two games at home and away. " It was a real easy game," Said 36 Year Old Knicks' Center Patrick Ewing, " We had a lot of fun toying around with the Lakers and although we shut down Shaq, the heat was on." Ewing scored 26 of his 36 in the second half. After trading Charles Oakley and Chris Childs to the Lakers earlier in the season for Robert Horry and Nick Van Exel, the Knicks got off to a great start, leading the leagues best record ever at 73-9. The only teams that the Knicks lost to in the regular season were the Utah Jazz (twice), the Phoenix Suns (1 time), the Seattle SuperSonics(twice), and the New Jersey Nets which were the only team to sweep the season series against the Knicks (4 times).
The Knicks are looking to add Stephon Marbury to the roster on July 1, 1999. Stephon Marbury, in the 1998 NBA regular season said that he would like to play for the New York Knicks because he loves New York...And he must because they won the NBA Championship.
