Isola Recalls Last Knicks Snow Day

Snow is hitting hard in many parts of the country, but so far there are no NBA or NHL postponements to report. In today’s N.Y. Daily News, Frank Isola remembers the last time the Knicks had a snow day.

The last time the Knicks had a home game postponed, Don Nelson went bar-hopping on the snow-covered streets of Manhattan. That was back on Jan. 7, 1996, a little more than two months before Nelson was fired despite being nine games over .500.
In ’96, the Sonics were already in New York but the league and the Knicks still decided to postpone the game. The Milwaukee Bucks arrived in Manhattan late Wednesday night and as of noon today the Knicks are still planning to go ahead with the game.
