Punching that fire extinguisher casing might not have been the best idea.

Plenty of NBA franchises have long and stories histories. Many have timelines dotted with numerous highs and some lows as well. 

The New York Knicks are a little different. 

Founded in 1946, the Knicks spent the first 23 years of their existence in search of a title. They finally got one in 1970 and then another in 1973. 

It's been cold turkey since then, though. If the Knicks don't win a title either this season or next season then they'll have hit the 40-year drought mark. 

The team has made the playoffs plenty of times, and they've made the NBA Finals twice since 1973. No rings though. That means there are plenty of seasons and playoff runs to look back on and plenty of tough losses and bad plays to regret and relive.

It won't be easy, but listed here in chronological order are some of the most memorable (or forgettable if you're a Knicks fan) playoff mishaps in team history.
