Ziik, thanks for noting this. For 10 years beginning with the '55-'56 season, the Knicks were fourth (last) in the East and .500 or below in every season except the one season cited in the article, where Fuzzy got them to 8 games over .500 and a second place finish. That one season was considered a miracle by the fans. Then, of course, they drafted Walt Frazier to add to Willis Reed and other developing talent, within a few years won their first championship, and Fuzzy's miracle didn't seem like such a big deal any more. But I've never forgotten about old Fuzzy for that glimmer of hope when I was a kid and the Knicks seemed like a chronic 30-25 win team.
