Many teams had their championship hopes blocked by Jordan's dominance, and the '90s-era Knicks is arguably the most prominent of those teams. Knicks fans would leave sick every time they faced the Bulls in the playoffs. The two met four times between 1989-93, and Patrick Ewing and the Knicks lost each time.
It wasn't like it was their center's fault though. Ewing—who's just one of 10 players in history to have over 22,000 points and 10,000 rebounds—averaged a double-double in each of those series. The Bulls just found some way to thwart NY every time. The only time Ewing's Knicks made it past Chicago was when MJ retired.
