The New York Knicks franchise is full of many, and I mean many, history-making moments. From an NBA title, John Starks' dunk over the Bulls, players like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant tearing up the scoreboard to some of the NBA's greats wearing the Knicks uniform, there is no doubt New York truly is a Mecca for basketball.

However, one moment is so undeniably unforgettable that it has to be the greatest moment in Madison Square Garden - Willis Reed coming out of the Knick tunnel only to play in Game 7 of the 1970 NBA Finals. New York would defeat the Lakers thanks to the inspiration play by Reed.
