The 1990-91 New York Knicks season was the 45th season for the Knicks in the National Basketball Association.[3] In the offseason, the Knicks signed unrestricted free agent John Starks, who played in the Continental Basketball Association the previous season.[4] The Knicks changed their on-court leadership early in the season as head coach Stu Jackson was replaced by John MacLeod.[5] After a 6-3 start to the season, the Knicks lost eight of their next nine games. They recovered to a 34-33 record near the end of the season, but then went 5-10 in their last 15 games.[6] New York finished in third place in the Atlantic Division with a 39-43 record, and earned the #8 seed in the Eastern Conference for the NBA Playoffs. Patrick Ewing led the Knicks with 26.6 points per game, and was selected for the 1991 NBA All-Star Game.[7]

In the first round, the Knicks were swept in three straight games by the eventual NBA champion Chicago Bulls.[7] Following the season, Maurice Cheeks was traded to the Atlanta Hawks.[8]
