The New York Knicks are a professional basketball team of the National Basketball Association (NBA) based in New York City. Shortened for the version of their official name, Knickerbockers, the Knicks won two NBA Championships in 1970 and 1973, and they’re one of the most lucrative franchises in professional basketball.

During the 2020-2021 NBA Season, the New York Knicks had a strong start with their winning attitude and culture established by the recently appointed head coach Tom Thibodeau. As a result, the New York Knicks have a winning record after eight games for the first time since the 2012-2013 season.

Let’s take a peek at the Best 10 Knicks Reddit Posts of 2021.

“Quickley Looks Impressive In “We Them One’s” Runs | Knicks Immanuel Quickley Highlights”

Drafted with the 25th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Immanuel Quickley scored a game-high 25 points against the Los Angeles Lakers to lead the New York Knicks to a 91-82 win in their game in the MGM Resorts Summer League.

Quickley’s biggest strength is his shooting, and his scoring capabilities are advanced for a rookie. It’s been a long time since the Knicks had a young guard that captured the attention of fans and players around the league in their rookie season. He’s got it.

2. The Hova and The Rookie

“Two NYC legends. One past, one future.”

One year ago, Sean “Diddy” Combs had his 50th birthday celebration at his Los Angeles mansion in Holmby Hills. Music mogul and rapper Jay-Z and Immanuel Quickley were some of the celebrities invited to the bash. Others include Kanye West, Post Malone, Beyonce, and more.

Jay-Z has been one of the most prominent influences in the music industry. He used his gift of rhyme to escape the treacherous projects in Brooklyn. On the other hand, Immanuel is a rising star in the NBA, a hometown hero. Both stars posed for a photo shown in the post by u/Naweezy.

“RJ Showcasing his offensive abilities in Pure Sweat Run’s with NBA Pros”

The young shooting guard of the New York Knicks, RJ Barrett, has an effective field-goal percentage at nearly 50% as he feasts in the corners of the three-point range. He’s averaged 17.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 3.0 assists.

RJ is a starting-level talent who is just hitting his stride in the NBA after developing experience and muscle mass. He entered the league as a skinny guard, but he’s added more weight and size to take on bigger and more physical defenders, driving to the basket with authority. With his defensive prowess and athleticism, RJ will be looking to improve his strength this off-season. (Posted on Knicks Reddit by u/MilkChocolateRain)

4. Orange Julius Hustling Hard Dribble

“Julius Randle working on those handles 👀🤤”

Julius Randle carried the Knicks to their third straight victory by dropping 44 points and 5 assists on the Atlanta Hawks. He has blossomed into the leader of an alarmingly competent Knicks in his seventh NBA season. At 26, he has put together an All-Star season at this point in his career.

In a post by u/Naweezy, Julius is enhancing his handling skills as well as three-point shooting. He’ll be a formidable player once he masters all the areas of his game.

5. D-Rose Incredible Handles to the Hoop

“NBA Handles Week | Derrick Rose’s best moves”

A new generation of point guards in the NBA is keeping Derrick Rose going. He was the league’s MVP ten seasons ago, and now he’s embracing his role as a vet. His meteoric rise for his hometown Chicago Bulls made him a household name. Since then, Derrick has experienced highs and lows in his 12-year career.

Over the years, his jaw-dropping moves have inspired a younger generation. His longevity humbles him in the game. Meanwhile, D-Rose is the eighth player in league history to have more than ten signature shoes with the same brand after Adidas released his 11th signature sneaker—D Rose 11.

Knicks rookie shooting guard Quentin Grimes finally showed aggressiveness and took matters into his own hands in the summer league, with a combined 43 points in the past two games. Quentin started handling the ball more as a point man and collected four assists in one of the games, showing that he’s not just a three-point shooter.

He just took ten shots per game in his first three games while averaging 35 minutes of play. But entering another four games’ action, Quentin averaged a modest 9.5 points and 6.5 rebounds, with a shooting percentage of 35%. (Posted by u/SoulFinders on Knicks Reddit)

10. The Short-Lived Fame of Linsanity

“A great homage to the best 3 weeks of our sports-watching lives”

Extraordinary things can sometimes happen in sports that people cannot explain. Seemingly average players can have an extra special night to make the fans go home happy. In the 2011-2012 NBA season, few people had heard of the New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. It took one fateful game to change everything, and Linsanity was born -- the enthusiasm and excitement about the sudden rise of Jeremy Lin to basketball stardom.

In a game against the Utah Jazz, Lin scored 28 points and went from a player no one had heard of to a hero overnight, literally. And people had gone crazy for Lin, especially when he found himself lining up against Kobe Bryant. Linsanity blew the roof off the Madison Square Garden in that game. (Posted by u/20jmcjmc20)
