Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and you definitely don't have to agree with mine. But it's completely subjective to say your view is more valid than someone else's.
The Knicks have updated their uniforms 9 times since their early 70's championships. The "history" and "tradition" of their current iteration (2012-present) include one single playoff appearance where they were bounced in the second round by Indiana.
They currently have one of my least favorite looks in the league. If they changed their shorts stripes and design, that would be a good place to start. But again, that's just what I think; and at the end of the day it doesn't matter all that much.
