You gotta go to the games! Madison Square Garden is the best arena in pro sports, and you're going to travel to NYC only to watch the game on a 13" tv in some bar?

I'm telling you, the $10 tickets in MSG are better than $35 tickets almost anywhere else. If you know what dates you'll be in town, ask around on some Knicks message boards for information on how to buy tickets during the presale that should be coming up soon. You can get yourself some $10 seats and enjoy the game in style.

how about ESPNZone in Times Square?
I used to go to a good one in the W.Village, 7th Ave & about Christopher, but it gets really crowded.
But the REAL sports bars are in Brooklyn.

Well, you first have to make sure that there are indeed bars in NYC. If you wind up there and can't find any, you are s hit outta luck as far as finding other things to do is concerned...........

I think the ESPNZone is a bit overrated. It really depends on the crowd that night. If it's just a bunch of casual joes, or your WallStreet think they know it all, then forget it.

I've only been to ESPN once to watch a football game... do they show non-ESPN channels there? Most of the Knicks games are on MSG.

Actually I just remembered something - there's a jazz club called Cleopatra's Needle on Broadway around 95th street that has a big projection screen and puts basketball on. There's no cover charge, a reasonable food/drink minimum (maybe $15?) and live jazz.

I'm sure there are better places with more sports fans - I just don't know where they are.

You really should try to scalp tickets to a game. They're easy to find right outside in the covered mall, there's almost never any issues, and for a random, weeknight NBA game, the cost probably won't be much more than you'd spend on booze in a Manhattan bar. My advice would be to try to get tix outside the arena, and if you can't get in, head across the street to the Blarney Stone. It'll be a little dead once the game starts, but the pre and post games' always fun there. There's a few small bars right up that street too if you want to crawl for a bit. And it's a nice area, not too touristy, but not really a residential area. And since it's still right in the middle of the island, it still feels really city-y, if you know what I mean.
