The New York Knickerbockers, known as the Knicks, are one of only two charter members of the National Basketball Association still in their original cities (the other being the Boston Celtics). The Knicks were among the league's elite in three different eras, each separated by about two decades. In the early 1950s New York played for the NBA title three times. The early 1970s represented the team's golden age, when the Knicks won two NBA championships with a roster studded with such Hall of Fame talent as Willis Reed, Walt Frazier, Dave DeBusschere, Earl Monroe, and Bill Bradley. Then, in the 1990s, the Knicks again became dominant behind center Patrick Ewing, advancing to the NBA Finals in 1994 and 1999. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org" target="new">Source</a>

The New York Mets are a professional baseball team based in the borough of Queens in New York City, New York. The Mets are a member of the East Division of Major League Baseball's National League. The Mets were founded as an expansion franchise in 1960 and began play in 1962. The club came into existence as a replacement for New York's two previous National League teams, the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants, who relocated to California following the 1957 season. As an interesting historical note, there was an earlier baseball club called the New York Metropolitans which played in the short-lived American Association during the 1880s. While the defunct 19th century team is not related to the current incarnation of the Mets, its moniker did serve as the inspiration for the modern day National League franchise. <br> For the first two years of its existence, the team played its home games at the historic Polo Grounds in Upper Manhattan, which it shared with the New York Jets. In 1964, both teams moved into newly constructed Shea Stadium, where the Mets stayed through the 2008 season. In 2009, the club moved into Citi Field, located adjacent to the former site of Shea Stadium. <a href=""http://en.wikipedia.org"" target=""new"">Source</a>
