    1972-74 New York Knicks Game Worn Warm-Up Jacket Attributed to Dave DeBusschere. Beautiful home white New York Knicks jacket is reported to have been worn on the bench during the final three years of DeBusschere's career as he was putting the final touches on his Hall of Fame numbers. It comes to Heritage through the family of a gentleman who had been an executive with NBC Sports and had acquired the jacket from DeBusschere personally, though we must acknowledge a lack of identifiers within the jacket or any paperwork documenting the gift. The classic style should be instantly recognizable to any fans who were fortunate enough to visit the Garden during the Knicks' 1972-73 NBA Championship season, and the thirty-five years that have passed since those glory days finds the jacket none the worse for wear. A blue and orange tackle twill "NY" over the heart recalls New York Yankees graphics, with "New York" artfully arching between the shoulder blades on verso. Orange and blue trim adorns the short sleeve cuffs and tail as well. Seven-snap front. At the very least a tough Knicks Championship-era model, but we are personally entirely confident in the DeBusschere connection. LOA from Lou Lampson.
