1994 – With a 102-92 New York Knicks victory over the New Jersey Nets in Game 4, the Knicks defeated the Nets in the first round. This 1994 Knicks team was the last one to make it to the NBA Finals in a non-lockout season. Patrick Ewing had a game-high 36 points on that day.

We are now 20 years later, and when the Knicks hire their next coach, it will be their 10th different one (including interim coaches) since Pat Riley. Other than Jeff Van Gundy, none of the coaches lasted more than four seasons. If the reports are true, Steve Kerr will have a difficult situation on his hands.
