NYT: Home Court Advantage or Burden for the Underachieving Knicks?
My latest NYT Off the Dribble piece examines the weird double-edged sword that is Madison Square Garden:
Even in the leanest of years for the Knicks -– an era in which they’re still arguably mired -– they have enjoyed an impressive home-court advantage at Madison Square Garden. Whatever their on-court fortunes, the Knicks can count in their favor a fan base as knowledgeable, and as loud, as any in professional sports.
