The New York Knicks may not be enjoying the same spotlight and hype that they used to have back in the day, but it did not stop the Madison Square Garden from being the biggest and most popular place for a good ball game in the history of the NBA.
Contributing to the popularity of the iconic spherical arena is not only the NBA fact that it is at the heart of a tourist place in the United States, a place for NHL games, as well as favorite concert venues for the biggest and most popular names in the industry. The Madison Square has been the most-used NBA arena.
This theater opened back in 1968 and is currently at a 20,000 seating capacity. Despite its huge capacity, getting tickets for a game on the Square can prove to be a hard task to accomplish. This is one of the reasons why if you managed to get inside and witness an event, make sure to show it off on your social media handles!
