2014–15 New York Knicks season

The 2014–15 New York Knicks season was the 69th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA). On March 28, the Knicks set a new franchise-record 60 losses in a season, finishing at 65. The Knicks missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season, and for the tenth out of fourteen since 2001–02. This particular season has been commonly referred to as the worst season in Knicks history as it was the first time they had lost more than 60 games in franchise history. The Lakers also lost more than 60 games that year, leaving the Utah Jazz as the sole franchise to not have a 60+ losing record.
