Iman Shumpert was just four years old when the Knicks last won the Atlantic. This year, for the first time in 13 years they won 50-plus games (54 to be exact), as well as a playoff series. It is a sweet coincidence that the team that most often won Atlantic Division that past 20 years, the Celtics, was the Knicks' first-round playoff opponent. The team was able to assert itself as the new leader of the Division by both capturing the Atlantic title with their regular season record and then ending the Celtics' season in the first round.
