“Paul Knepper has done more than just compile an encyclopedic knowledge of the Knicks’ history and the franchise’s most important moments. He has brought its most fascinating characters to life, documenting the triumphs and shortcomings of one of professional sports’ most iconic franchises — and the people who have won, lost and been defined by a team and an era.” — Kent Babb, author of Not A Game: The Incredible Rise and Unthinkable Fall of Allen Iverson

Champions Without a Ring had me humming the tune of the wonderfully corny Knicks rap “Go New York Go” from start to finish — and I mean that in the best way. Today’s Knicks fans may have grown accustomed to wondering if the franchise will compete for an NBA championship in the next decade, but thanks to Paul Knepper, they can relive the last great era of Knicks basketball in all its bruising, hard-nosed glory.  ” — Rafe Bartholomew, author of Basketball: A Love Story

“Knicks fans who pine for the last time their team entertained title hopes, or when the game had more of an overall black-and-blue sheen, will enjoy this book. Takes you back to those days, with a few never-been-told-before nuggets unearthed along the way.” — Ric Bucher, Bleacher Report and Fox Sports 1
