When you're naming a sports team, you essentially have the entire dictionary at your disposal, but New York decided not to look any further than the team's letterhead for inspiration. Wrapping it all up in the ruse of a fan contest is just adding insult to injury, as no one outside of the team's front office could possibly have thought 'Knicks' was the best possible option for the team.

At least they didn't name the team the Redskins, I guess.
