1. The "Knickerbocker" name comes from the pseudonym used by Washington Irving in his book A History of New York, a name which became applied to the descendants of the original Dutch settlers of what later became New York, and later, by extension, to New Yorkers in general. Irving was from Manhattan, New York and was inspired that name from living there. The Knicks were never named off of the entire state, it was always based on the city.
2. The postal code for Manhattan is New York, NY as the postal code for Brooklyn is Brooklyn, NY.
3. And of course, the obvious the bias...There is two teams in NY that are fairly contenders (obviously, the Knicks are ahead than we are right now) so New York supremacy is up for grabs in terms of race to get a championship.
OK bro. Thanks for the history lesson. Now good luck with that race to a championship thing.
