Ah, Knicks fans. What can we say about Knicks fans that hasn't already been said about hemorrhoids and chronic premature ejaculators? Ha! We kid (kinda sorta). But even the most partisan 'Bockers backer has to admit that there are a couple of characteristics common to many Knick faithful: a burning passion for the game and a tendency to have an overly rosy view of the team's future. Uber-fan Spike Lee was guilty of both in the Eastern Conference Finals Game 5, when he goaded Reggie Miller into one of the greatest performances in Playoffs history. Would Miller have gone off for 25 points in the 4th quarter without Spike egging him on? Possibly, but it wouldn't have constituted a Knicks fail if he hadn't, and it provided further ammo to the feeling in the early '90s that everybody—aside from their fans and the players themselves—hated the Knicks.
