Blood in the Garden: The Flagrant History of the 1990s New York Knicks Free Audiobook Download by Chris Herring

The 1990s New York Knicks were notorious for their bad or questionable decisions. The team's 2nd round pick, Eddy Curry, was a 6'11" center who is widely known for not being able to shoot. This book documents the history of this era of the Knicks with a focus on the scandals and controversies that surrounded them.

The 1990s were a tumultuous decade in the NBA. The Knicks were a team on the rise with a talented young nucleus of players like Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley, yet they never experienced success on the greatest stage of them all, the NBA Finals. That came to an end in 1999 when they finally reached the promised land. However, something happened in between those two years that would forever change their trajectory

Blood in the Garden is a book about one of the most infamous periods of basketball teams in history. It tracks the Knicks from their championship years in the early nineties to their struggles after beating Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in an epic series. The book not only looks into the team's successes and failures, but also its ties to organized crime, which allowed for everyone on that team to be paid off when necessary.

Blood in the Garden: The Flagrant History of the 1990s New York Knicks initially covers the history of the team, as well as recent drafts and trades. Chris Herring takes a deep dive on what it was like to watch these games live and asks how we got here. His book also discusses many of the individual players, including those who were largely forgotten, those who didn't make it at all, and those who are still in the NBA today.

Blood In The Garden: The Flagrant History Of The 1990s New York Knicks presents a well-researched, well-written history of the 1990s New York Knicks. Written by Chris Herring, who spent years of his career as a sportswriter chronicling the team and its players, Blood In The Garden tells how a once-proud organization became an embarrassment to the league and how their inability to produce or maintain talent led to the dismantling of one of basketball's most storied franchises in just two seasons - 1992 and 1993.

The NBA was the biggest thing to happen to sports in the 1990s. It was arguably the best decade for basketball since the 60s. The New York Knicks were at the hub of all of this and their domination over the league is well documented. They had Hall-of-Famers and big free agent signings, but more than anything they had a consistent team that never missed a beat. Their success on the court led to some wild stories off it. In this audiobook, Chris Herring talks about some of them and recounts other behind-the-scenes stories from his time covering New York sports as a reporter.
