My two years of high school Spanish informed me that the proper translation is, in fact, "Nueva York," putting this pandering jersey miles ahead of the crop of "Los _______" pandering jerseys.

Word. I have to give them the thumbs up for this one.

Wouldn't the actual translation be something like "Los Nativos de Nueva York"?

Knickerbockers (by this definition) are native New Yorkers, descendants of the Dutch colonists. It has nothing to do with pants.

CHILL BRO IT WAS A JOKE.

nah, i was just trying to be funny.. i didn't put too much thought behind this (and all of my other) thread(s)

...and Knicks aren't pantaloons or any kind of clothing. Knickerbocker is a Dutch surname. It is a name often cited in reference to New York City, referred to the oldest New Yorker families, for the most part of Dutch origins, an allusion to the fictional character "Father Knickerbocker" who, according to the tale told by Washington Irving, was the head of the first socially prominent family in New York. According to Ric Burns' New York: A Documentary Film, generations of New Yorkers proudly claimed to be descendants of Father Knickerbocker, despite his fictional roots.

Those baggy knee-high trousers got their nickname from the "Father Knickerbocker" character, and were called "Knickers"

Why Knickerbockers?

Thus, the Knickerbocker name was an integral part of the New York scene when the Basketball Association of America granted a charter franchise to the city in the summer of 1946. As can best be determined, the final decision to call the team the "Knickerbockers" was made by the club's founder, the legendary Ned Irish.

"The name came out of a hat," recalled Fred Podesta, the longtime Garden executive who passed away at age 86 in 1999. "We were all sitting in the office one day -- Irish, (public relations director) Lester Scott and a few others on the staff. We each put a name in the hat, and when we pulled them out, most of them said Knickerbockers, after Father Knickerbocker, the symbol of New York City. It soon was shortened to Knicks."
