san antonio in 99
The loss that hurt the most to me this season i think that game against the rockets.. The knicks were up double digits in the last 5 minutes in the last quarter. But with only 30 seconds left the game was tiedd. After the knicks commited a 24 second violation mcgrady scored the quick basket and we lost.. 10 minutes later Lenny Wilkens gave up on the knicks and quit.

The most memorable Knick loss for me was the Charles Smith debacle Game 5 against the Bulls in '90 somethin'.. Any true Knick fan never forgave Charles for not dunking the ball in the final seconds. We were up 2 games to none and looked like we could actually beat the hated Jordans, then choked away the series. Damn!...
i think hes talking about this season, but w/e
i think my most memorable lost was probably when we played the bulls at MSG, and ben gordon lit us up and hit that running floater.... another game that took alot of strength out of me was the lakers game when they hit like 4 3's to take it to OT, but then WAlton and Kobe had the mix up and we won, im so glad we won that, i would have probably cried
Oh, he was talking about this season? Then it had to be the first game we had at MSG when we got killed by the Celtics in our home opener. I think that game gave us the reputation of being "soft" around the league, something as a fan I just can't deal with, rooting for a "soft" team. The way Davis was just posting up Crawford, Pierce was just going down the lane and dunking, even LaFrentz was killing us, that asswhooping convinced me that we had to do something about adding some more size and toughness, eventhough it was just our first home game.
deffinelty agreed, the last game of the series, i think i criedOriginally Posted by pyotrveliky
oh if its this season, that the back to back losses to the Bulls, Chandler with the block and Nazr with the missed dunk,
The 04-05 season opener (ny-bos). I hope the Knicks crush whoever our first opponent is for this years opener. Crush them like the little bugs they are.
why is my girlfriend wearing an Carmelo jersey?
Will never forget Charles Smith trying and trying, that is onw bad memory. Just as bad as game six against Houston in 95, which was substituted by the O.J. Simpson chase, then Starks shot and missed on a ton of threes and Rockets came back to win rhe last two games and the title, that will never cease to hurt. Seeing San Antonio sweep us and celebrate at MSG hurt big time. This past season that first game against the Celts really burst the bubble of hope for the entire season, followed by that horrendous streak before the AllStar game.
has to be the loss against the sonics in seattle we still had a chance but that loss seem to just take the fighting spirit out of the team because you just sensed our playoff push was over at that very moment.
Charles Smith is a good "awful" choice; however, I have to go with Reggie Miller and the 3point explosion...The Knicks haven't been good enough lately to have a "bad" loss...
when we was down by around 20 in the last quarter against philly and we made a comeback. we were down bt 1 in the last second and mohammed missed the alley oop
There have been too many to name just one. No chapionships since 73 means a lot of hurtful losses in my book. If I had to pick just 1 or 2 I would have to rank losing to the Houston Rockets in 94 as the worst since were up 3-2 in the series. The other one would have to be the Charles Smith game. Really we should put there any of the losses against Michael Jordan and Reggie Miller. Those two always tried to kill us.
Slight correction, we didnt' get swept by the Spurs, we lost in 5. But it did hurt to see them celebrate on the Garden floor.Originally Posted by portega1968
Yes, that Game 6 loss in the '94 finals hurt me the most. Starks actually had a scorching game before getting that final shot blocked by Hakeem. To this day he says that shot would've gone in if he wasn't blocked.
This past season? How about those buzzer beaters by Ben Gordon and Dwyane Wade?
that game 5 with SA back in 99 was pretty hurting, but i guess i never thought we could win more than 1 or 2 games.. the spurs were way better than an 8th seed...
about game 5 against the bulls.. 1993.. i have the game on my hard disk but i am not able to watch it.. i just can't
this season.. it wasn't so bad for me since i couldn't watch any game (AGAIN!!) but the most depressive loss was the philly one from february... 105-106
of course, we trashed them few days ater :P
