New York is called the Mecca of basketball and in a world where everyone wants to argue, that isn't even up for debate. In one of the biggest cities in the world, the players who put on the orange and blue tend to sell better than their small market counterparts. A historically bad and meme'd franchise since the Ewing days outside of 2 years with Carmelo, the Knicks are finally good again. The fans have something to root for, driving up excitement for the franchise.

Off-season acquisition Donte Divincenzo is having a career year scoring 14 PPG on 41% from three, both career highs. Many Knick fans were fond of Donte due to the Villanova connection in which he won 2x national championships.

As a result of Donte's great play in the Big Apple, his market is up 55% in the last three months. His recent spike can be attributed to his scorching hot play, averaging over 20 PPG in his last 20 games

A mid-season acquisition from Toronto left Knick fans saying goodbye to two fan favorites in RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley. However 3&D specialist OG Anunoby left Knick fans forgetting who they got rid of.

As a result of his tenacious defense and ability to stretch the floor, his market is up 61%. Fans love him and Thibs loves himself Luol Deng 2.0 even more!

Even Precious Achiuwa's market is up drastically since joining the Knicks. The Knicks are good and when the Knicks are good. Fans love them and they eagerly seek out their cards.
