The New York Knickerbockers (for their full name) but more commonly referred to as the Knicks, are an American, professional basketball team based out of beautiful New York City.  The Knicks compete in the NBA, the highest level of pro basketball available, as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference, along with the Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, and Philadelphia 76ers.  The team plays its home games at the recognized Madison Square Garden, located in the borough of Manhattan itself.  The New York Knicks is one of the oldest teams in the league.  The team, established by Ned Irish in the year 1946, was one of the founding members of the original Basketball Association of America (BAA), which became the NBA after merging with the rival National Basketball League (NBL) a few years later in 1949.  Another thing that makes the Knicks interesting is that, along with only the Boston Celtics, the Knicks are one of only two original NBA teams still located in its original city that it was founded in all those decades ago.
