22. The Bulls
Michael Jordan and the Bulls tormented the Knicks and their fans for nearly a decade. This rivalry goes back to Jordan's and Ewing's college days when the two faced off during the 1982 National Championship game, and, like every subsequent occasion, Mike got the best of Pat. Other than the Pistons, the Knicks were the Bulls' toughest obstacle on their way to six championships. MJ always got up to play at the Garden because of the stage and the fact that New York never backed down. During that nine-year stretch, the Knicks were only able to beat Chicago one time in the playoffs and that's when Jordan retired. When he returned to the Mecca, His Airness dropped 55 in front of a dizzy Garden crowd.
