The last time the Knicks won a playoff game

was on April 29th, 2001. The following is a list of events and facts also of that time:

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, Iman Shumpert was only 10 years old.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, they beat a Vince Carter led Toronto Raptors.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, most people didn’t even know who Osama Bin Laden was.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, most people didn’t know what a Wikipedia was since it just launched that year.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, George W. Bush was in his fourth month as POTUS.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, the X-BOX had not been released yet.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, the word “iPod” had not yet entered our lexicon.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, MySpace, Facebook and “social media” was non-existent and people were mostly using LiveJournal.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, people were still using “Ask Jeeves”.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, Harry Potter was just getting popular.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, Halle Berry became the first African-American to receive an Academy Award for Best Actress.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, American audiences were enamored by French Manic Pixie Dream Girl Audrey Tatou for the first time.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, the band At The Drive-In had just called it quits.

The last time the Knicks won a playoff game, Deion Sanders was training for the Cincinnati Reds.

OK I have beaten this point to death by now, but really the last time the Knicks won a playoff game, it was quite a different world we were living in. It’s truly amazing to think that it’s actually taken THAT long for them to even get back to this point. I mean we’re celebrating them winning just a SINGLE game, in a series that I dare not even entertain the idea of them conceivably coming back from. But here we are eleven years later (11 years, 8 days to be exact) and I have to say, for the time being, it feels pretty good.
