The 2004–05 New York Knicks season was the 59th season for the team in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] During the offseason, the Knicks acquired Jamal Crawford from the Chicago Bulls.[2] Early in the season, the team released Shandon Anderson after he had played one game; Anderson later joined the Miami Heat as a free agent;[3][4] the Knicks played around .500 with a 16–13 start, but then lost 16 of their next 18 games.[5] Head coach Lenny Wilkins resigned after a 17–22 start,[6] and was replaced by assistant Herb Williams for the remainder of the season;[7][8] the Knicks then lost nine straight games between March and April,[5] finishing fourth place in the Atlantic Division with a 33–49 record, and failing to qualify for the NBA Playoffs.[9] In his first full season with the Knicks, Stephon Marbury led the team with 21.7 points, 8.1 assists and 1.5 steals per game.[9][10] Following the season, Larry Brown was hired as coach,[11] Kurt Thomas was traded to the Phoenix Suns and Allan Houston retired.[12][13]
