I loved the 71 and 73 New York Knicks

The Knicks teams of those seasons played game like it was supposed to be played. I only wish that our youth of today had seen the Knicks play. They played the right way. They cared about each other and it showed on the court with their amazing teamwork and passing. They defended and helped each other on Defense. I miss Basketball played like this and I believe this is what James Naismith dreamed on how the game should be played. I miss Willis Reed, Walt Frazier, Dave Debusshere, Bill Bradley, Dick Barnett, Earl Monroe, Jerry Lucas, and yes even Phil Jackson who gained not only his philosophy from Tex Winter but also the Great Red Holzman. I like many were blessed by this style of Basketball.
