In the early 1970s, America was being torn apart by the war in Vietnam, with racial unrest in the streets and a distrust of the White House. But there was a happier place where men of different backgrounds showed people that amazing things could happen when they worked together: Madison Square Garden. Stitched together by Red Holzman, these Knicks - Bill Bradley, Willis Reed, Walt Frazier, Dave DeBusschere, Earl Monroe, Dick Barnett & Phil Jackson - may have seemed an odd collection, but by embracing their differences and utilizing their strengths, they showed the NBA and the world what it was like to play as a team. Based on the book by Harvey Araton, director Michael Rapaport explores the only championship years of the New York Knicks, when they made the NBA Finals in three out of four seasons, winning two titles.
