As a knick fan,what do you consider our "darkest day"???

I am really torn...Charles Smith really hurt..Watching Starks hoist em was bad..Ewing getting suspened was a joke...

But trading Camby and what should have been Amare will last for years

That has got to be the most painful poll I've ever read. Guess I got to go with Starks 3-18 as we were that close, but damn, why so many good ones to choose from?

I was so mad when the spurs beat the Knicks in the finals, i was so proud of the knicks that season and that made me a fan forever. It would have to be ewing not "playing" against the spurs.

i am suprised no one has went with charles smith missing 3 point blank tipins with 7 seconds left....

I was pretty pissed when Stern suspended ewing for getting off the bench in the ward-pj brown wrestlemania....

And starks was a killer....

Also, only the top two selections qualify. All the others happened when the Knicks weren't favored to win it. Ewing was ancient when Layden came along. The Bulls were favored to win it anyway when the Knicks got the whole team suspended. Bernard King probably wouldn't have fit in well with Ewing and the only reason they got Ewing in the first place is because King tore up his knee.

Starks shooting cost the Knicks the Finals, and Smith's bricking cost the Knicks the only series they had an edge over the Bulls.

I think had Ewing not torn his Achiles that would have been a very tough Knick squad...

Camby was playing out of his mind as was Spree,bt they needed more height to play against Duncan and the Admiral...

And the Miami bral was the most ridiculous call by Stern ever

94 game 7 for me was the worst. of course because the knicks lost the title, but also because starks is my all time favorite player. then seeing the newspapers and listening to guys talk about starks... just agonizing. i was 11 years old and to this day it was one of the most depressing times of my life. but i never once blamed starks for losing the game for us. he had an unbelievable year and playoffs, without him the knicks dont come close to that point.

that Starks lefthnded slam from the baseline may have been the best dunk i have ever seen,considering it was in heavy traffic,with time running down and in a pressure enviorment....
